…especially leaseholders with grazing rights on public lands
Having a ranch bordering public lands, and maintaining a grazing lease on public lands, have become an ever tightening noose around the necks of ranchers in the West. There is very little doubt that Federal land agencies are being heavily influenced, if not controlled, by environmental groups that see man and cattle as un-natural and a plague to nature that must be eliminated. Ranching families that have depended on grazing leases for many generations are now facing senseless restrictions and hostility from land agencies that were traditionally supportive. They are not only being forced off public lands, but facing environmental regulations and controls that are also ending the rights to beneficially use their own private land.
Join Debbie Bacigalupi and her special guests Jeanette Finicum, wife of murdered rancher Lavoy Finicum, and Ramona Hage Morrison, to hear first hand of the unnecessary hardships Western ranching families are facing on a daily basis.
Our Guest Host Debbie Bacigalupi is a Californian cattle rancher who is in-demand throughout the west as an educational speaker on Agenda 21, the 2030 Agenda, Cap and Trade, Sustainable Development, property rights, dams and water rights, “conservation” and other related issues.
She attends many conferences including the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, COP21 and the 2015 UN Paris Climate Change Conference, Navigating the American Carbon World on Cap and Trade, the Western Governors Association Crucial Habitat Conferences, and many Fish and Wildlife meetings and hearings on the Endangered Species Act.
Ms. Bacigalupi co-produced and/or inspired timely documentaries: Blue, No Water No Farmer No Food, and Wolves in Government Clothing – all focusing on how aggressive environmental policy is harming rural America.
Discouraged by the erosion of rural America, she ran for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012. Ms. Bacigalupi holds a BS degree in Business and a Masters in Business Administration and is a Certified Meeting Professional and Sommelier. Her entrepreneurial spirit and passion to free rural America and change lives through education inspired her to open her own business with Rodan+Fields (dbacigalupi.myrandf.biz). She is Senior Editor of Technocracy.News.
Jeanette Finicum – Wife of LaVoy Finicum, Mother of 12 Children and 25 grandchildren. God’s servant in the fight to restore our lost liberties. Jeanette speaks about LaVoy and his character, who he was, what he was standing for, also about her personal experiences with the BLM and the FBI since her husbands murder.

Ramona (Hage) Morrison(NV) is the oldest daughter of Wayne and Jean Hage. She grew up on ranches in northern California and central Nevada and has been intimately involved with her family’s two federal court cases and nearly 40 years of litigation involving the issue of whether or not ranchers have the right to access and be compensated for their split estate rights on federally administered lands.
Mrs. Morrison has worked for more than 30 years in the public policy arena on property rights and land use matters. Upon graduating from the University of Nevada, Reno in 1987 with a degree in History and Economics, Mrs. Morrison served on the staff of Congressman Charles Pashayan (R-CA) in Washington D.C., focusing on California water and agriculture issues. Subsequently, she served as a lobbyist for the American Land Rights Association in its Sonoma, California and Washington, D.C. offices. After returning to Nevada in 1990, she spent five years working for the Nevada Mining Association representing the third largest gold mining industry in the world.
Mrs. Morrison was a founding officer of the Nevada Livestock Association, and served with the late Congressman Helen Chenoweth-Hage (Ret. R-ID), who chaired the organization, to lead a successful campaign to stop unlawful confiscations of livestock by the Bureau of Land Management.
