A Well Regulated Militia …

 

 

JTX_2014_01

 

 

 

” I lay on a pile of cow crap and nettles, peering uselessly through weeds growing on a wire fence. I am unable to see more than 12 feet into an open field. Prone, my neck and shoulders hurt as I crane hoping to see far enough so that I can have some warning of advancing forces. I am sweating out buckets, soaking my Battle Dress Uniform (BDU), boonie hat and underwear as thoroughly as if I had been caught in a thunderstorm. My neck is developing a sunburn because, like an idiot, I failed to put sunblock into my kit. Baking in the sun, unable to see anything, feeling hot, bored and useless, I remember why I left the Army . . .

  Rewind a few months. I am very concerned about the lawful lawlessness of Federal State and local governments. Legislation and regulation seem to me to be oriented to favoring the fortunes of politically connected persons and groups rather than the general benefit of all citizens. What they do is legal, but it is immoral.

  The dustup between Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management really focused my attention as it made an abstract argument for overbearing government concrete. On one hand, it is clear that Bundy has dug his heels in and is ignoring the rulings of the authorities – he is on the wrong side of the law. On the other hand Bundy is the only rancher in the area left after years of management by the BLM – an agency supposedly empowered to manage land for the benefit of everyone, even ranchers. I think the Feds are morally wrong and the fines and penalties unjust. Unjust laws ought not be complied with.

  Even so, I am glad nobody went home limping that day when citizens, joined by militia groups, confronted the BLM agents posting an armed guard on a fence between Bundy and his property. To my eyes, an armed revolt against the Feds is a kind of abyss. In the US, our experience with revolution is mixed. If there is another revolt, I am not sure that what replaces the government will be any better. The track record is sketchy at best.

  Further, my impression of self-styled militia groups and their leadership has been pretty low. In the runup to a recent election, I ran into someone at a gun show all decked out in a set of woodland BDU fatigues with patches and a name tape. She growled about how rotten the Federal government is, but when I asked her who she is supporting in an upcoming race, she was ignorant of the candidates. I guess their plan was to walk around dressed up like GI Joe and grumble.”

Memo Outlines Obama’s Plan To Use The Military Against Citizens

 

 

 

 

” A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans.

  The directive contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of the Army Corps of Engineers.

  The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.”

 

 

 

 

“ This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” said a defense official opposed to the directive.

  Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.”

“ Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,” the directive states.”

Military assistance can include loans of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft. The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.

  A U.S. official said the Obama administration considered but rejected deploying military force under the directive during the recent standoff with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his armed supporters.”

Nevada Congressman Seeks Removal Of Bundy Backers

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A Nevada congressman is calling on elected officials in the state to rid a town in his district of militia members who have rallied around rancher Cliven Bundy in his battle with federal land managers.

  Rep. Steven Horsford, in an address to the Clark County Democratic Convention in Las Vegas on Saturday, said he’s making the request after hearing more complaints from constituents about the presence of Bundy supporters near Bunkerville, 75 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

  In encampments around the Bundy ranch, self-described militia members from around the country continue to camp with handguns on their hips and heavier weaponry within reach in a show of support for Bundy.”

Here we have a Democratic Rep taking his cues from school children …

” He said a fifth-grade girl told him that Bundy has a “sense of entitlement” and should pay grazing fees like other ranchers who use public land in the West. A man told him that Bundy is a “welfare rancher” living off taxpayer subsidies, Horsford said.

” And that is why I am calling on (Gov.) Brian Sandoval, Sen. Dean Heller, the (Clark County) sheriff (Doug Gillespie) and any other elected official in Nevada to do their part to get rid of these armed separatists,” Horsford said to loud cheers from about 200 delegates.”

The Long History Of BLM’s Aggressive Cattle Seizures

 

 

Range War History

” Every month, Raymond Yowell, the 84-year-old former chief of the Shoshone Indian Tribe in northeastern Nevada, has almost $200 garnished from his $1,150 Social Security check, and it all dates back to a 5:00am phone call on a Friday morning in 2002.

  That morning, a government official from the Bureau of Land Management told him to come down to a seizure site where the 132 cattle he owned were about to be impounded.

  When he arrived, men brandishing handguns told him he couldn’t get any closer than 250 yards from his cattle. He watched from a distance as the government loaded the livestock onto stock trailers.

  Within a week, the cattle had been sold at a private auction – for what Yowell estimated to be a quarter of their market price. The proceeds belonged to BLM, officials told him, paying a portion of the grazing fees he suddenly owed. It wasn’t enough to cover the full debt, and BLM sent Yowell a bill for $180,000.

  Yowell has been fighting the BLM in court ever since, but while the case moves its way through the system, his Social Security check takes a hit every month.

  The story, ranchers in Nevada say, is far from unique. Beginning in the late 1980s, BLM adopted aggressive tactics in the West, leading to large-scale cattle seizures and a disruption of life for ranchers that had utilized public lands for decades prior.

  While the press has showered attention on Cliven Bundy, a polarizing man who prompted a tense standoff between Bundy’s well-armed militia supporters and federal police, the struggle between ranchers and the BLM is much broader.”

 

 

     For a more detailed history of BLM abuse of ranchers dating back to the late ’80’s read the whole thing at Breitbart . It tells a story of arrogance and abuse that you will not find in the mainstream propaganda that needs to be told in order to understand the significance of the Bundy siege and the Fed’s war on ranchers and western landowners in general .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Full Clip Of Cliven Bundy’s Non-Racist, Pro-Black, Pro-Mexican, Anti-Government Remarks Vs. NYTimes’ Deceptively Edited Version

 

 

Here is the edited version produced by the Obama shills at Media Matters …

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Watch Bundy explain how we need to keep things from going backwards for blacks, and how the Federal government has created a neo-slave class via entitlement dependency that is so bad it is arguably worse than plantation slavery was. It is 100% clear that Cliven Bundy is not saying that blacks should be slaves picking cotton, but that the Federal government has created conditions for them so terrible, that their current situation may actually be worse. (If you are person of low intelligence, the fact that that is his point might be too hard for you to understand.) And he’s not blaming blacks for the issues of abortions, and crime and broken families, he’s blaming the Feds.”

 

    Here are Mr Bundy’s unedited remarks . Compare them to the NY Times/Media Matters selective edit above that is the version that has caused all of the uproar and revealed portions of our GOP “allies” to be craven cowards .

 

 

 

    Much thanks is due to Patrick Dollard for bringing the two versions to light and exposing the MSM’s agenda that is basically a piece of Statist propaganda . Stalin and Pravda would be proud .

How Now White Cowman?

 

 

 

look-a-squirrel

 

 

 

” Like everyone else, Gavin McInnes has weighed in on Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s observations on “the Negro”. Mr McInnes concludes:

  This isn’t about some old guy’s views on slavery. It’s about government control. We’re not saying Bundy is the messiah and we accept him as our personal savior. We’re saying the government is wrong.

  Let’s stipulate that Cliven Bundy is a racist. Let’s also assume, if only to save time, that he’s Islamophobic, homophobic and transphobic. So what? Does that make criticizing the Bureau of Land Management “racist” or “homophobic”?

  During my battles with Canada’s “human rights” commissions, defenders of the racket liked to point out that the people it targeted were generally pretty unsavory. And I’d respond that the reason the standard representation of justice in statuary is a blindfolded lady is because justice is supposed to be blind: If you run a red light and hit a pedestrian, it makes no difference whether the pedestrian you hit is Nelson Mandela or Cliven Bundy. Or at least it shouldn’t: one of the basic building blocks of civilized society is equality before the law.

  Likewise, if what the Bureau of Land Management is doing is wrong, the fact that Cliven Bundy is a racist sexist homophobe whateverphobe doesn’t make it right – any more than at Ruby Ridge FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi shooting Vicki Weaver in the back of the head as she was cradling her ten-month-old baby and running away from him is made right by the fact that she allegedly had “white supremacist” sympathies. As I wrote last week, I’ve little doubt that, in the era before cellphone video, the bureaucratic enforcers would have been happy to off Bundy and then come up with a reason why it doesn’t matter. At Waco, there were supposedly children being abused. So Generalissimo Janet Reno killed them all, and now they’re not being abused. In that sense, Mr Bundy is a lucky man: He got to live, and to trash his own reputation rather than having the feds do it for him.”

Black Marine Says Clive Bundy Is NOT A Racist

 

Charlie-Delta-with-Bundy-281x500

 

 

 

 

Charlie Delta
The media distorts information to the point of social division. This is a photo of myself and the resilient, often charismatic, and maybe not so tactful Cliven Bundy. He’s a cowboy and a helluva family man, not an orator. One thing he definitely isn’t – a racist. I found his comments to not only be NOT racist, but his own view of his experiences.”

 

 

   While Kevin Jackson of The BlackSphere has the entire letter from Charlie Delta , other black spokesmen have also stepped up to the plate in defense of Cliven Bundy’s ill-phrased but ultimately correct statement regarding the culture of government dependency that has managed to keep the black community from “fleeing the plantation” for over two generations .

 While personalities like Glenn  Beck and Sean Hannity have fled in terror from the Bundy remarks others with stronger spines have stepped up to explain Bundy’s poor choice of words and to re-iterate the important point that he was attempting to make , albeit in a decidedly insensitive way . Kyra Ann Davis went so far as to create a video that explains the import of Bundy’s point regardless of his ignorant , foot-in-mouth choice of words .

   Remember , Cliven Bundy is a simple rancher not a polished public speaker and Lord knows we’ve heard plenty of ignorant , racist statements from those who do have plenty of public speaking experience … Joe Biden , Al Sharpton , Jesse Jackson and others immediately leap to mind . 

Watch Ms Davis’s video below and make up your own mind . Remember that the MSM has a vested interest in protecting the powers that be and in no way reflect the interests of the public at large . They are to all appearances now nothing more than mouthpieces of the State .

 

 

 

    This is just another attempt to shout “Squirrel” and deflect attention from the larger point that the Federal government becomes more burdensome and overbearing by the day and the average citizen is becoming wise to that fact despite the MSM’s Herculean attempts to preserve the status quo .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Niger Innis: Cliven Bundy ‘Clumsily’ Stated An Important Point

 

 

Niger Innis

 

 

 

” After a lengthy conversation, embattled Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy finally understood the racist tone of his remarks and apologized privately, according to Niger Innis, the national spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality.

  Many of those who came to the support of the 67-year-old fled for cover when The New York Times quoted him as saying he was “wondering” if blacks are better off now than they were under slavery.

  Innis, who is running for Congress in Nevada, told J.D. Hayworth on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV that he spoke with Bundy for about an hour on Thursday and finally got him to realize the repugnant nature of his comments.

  Innis said that he does not believe Bundy to be inherently racist but said that he “clumsily” used a bad metaphor to try and make an important point.

” What would’ve been better is if Cliven had said, ‘Look, there are a number of blacks and Latinos and poor whites now that are involved in a real slavery which is the slavery of government dependence,'” Innis said. “I’m up here in Tonopah, which is part of my district, and I was just talking with a local businesswoman who pointed across the street and talked to me about low income housing or free government subsidized housing and how the people there do not work because they don’t have to.

They may not even know that they are slaves, but there is in fact a neoslavery that exists. When you take out individual initiative, individual responsibility and the hope that every individual is born with, to better their lives, to climb the economic ladder, to pursue happiness, that is in fact a neoslavery.”

Republicans Warn BLM Eyeing Land Grab Along Texas-Oklahoma Border

 

 

 

 

” Texas officials are raising alarm that the Bureau of Land Management, on the heels of its dust-up with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, might be eyeing a massive land grab in northern Texas.

  The under-the-radar issue has caught the attention of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who fired off a letter on Tuesday to BLM Director Neil Kornze saying the agency “appears to be threatening” the private property rights of “hard-working Texans.”

“ Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box,” wrote Abbott, also a Republican gubernatorial candidate.

 At issue are thousands of acres of land on the Texas side of the Red River, along the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Officials recently have raised concern that the BLM might be looking at claiming 90,000 acres of land as part of the public domain.

  The agency, though, argues that any land in question was long ago determined to be public property.”

Cowboy Poet Waddie Mitchell Pens ‘Call to All’ In Nevada Ranch Standoff

 

Waddie Mitchell

 

 

” Famed cowboy poet and Nevada rancher Waddie Mitchell , who spoke with Newsmax TV last week about the clash between Bundy and the BLM, has made the standoff the subject of his latest poem. He shared the piece, “A Call to All,” with Newsmax:



  This poem is not about a cowman who refused to give up rights
Or how the Feds have treated him and started all these fights
And it’s not about what side I’m on for a tortoise or some fees
This is all about our government out doing as it please

A Call To All

Americans, listen up and fear
About what’s happening out here
How our bureaucracies do anything to win
They stomp all over rights
Starting State and local fights
Stealing land and property from citizens

How the bureau of mis-management
Doesn’t even have to get consent
To spend six million to put one lone rancher down
Cuz, a tortoise might get stepped on
And some fees they disagree on ,,
Make it worth Gestapo force with guns and hounds?

The roots from which this stems
Come from their rules, all wrote by them
And they enforce their rules, but if you disagree
Guess who judges the whole mess?
You don’t even have to guess
The monster’s growing folks, it’s hungry and wants feed

Shall we all just sit and watch
While they carve another notch
From the rights that they have whittled on for years
One more gouge might cut plumb through
Allowing government to rule
And that would be the summit of our fears

Do you want a wolf Bo Peep
That will kill and eat your sheep
Or a guard dog to protect the sheep you own?
The offensive they’ve unfurled
Is reminiscent of third world
Who have ever thought it’d happen here at home?

And the puppet bureaucrats
Who are supposed to have our backs
The gorilla tactics they employ, folks, just ain’t right
They are poking hornet nests
Causing anger and unrest
They’ve no idea the deep resolve of folks they’ll fight

And sheriff, what the Hell’s with you ?
Do what you were sworn to do
Your siding with the Feds on this seems odd
Which politician got to you?
You protect and serve just who?
We need sheriffs not afraid to do their job

For, if they get away with this
Our freedom’s thrown to the abyss
And we will all feel Big Bad Brother’s iron hand
We best get out of our chairs
Prove to them that we do care
For the rights and freedoms that have built this land

Civil disobedience
Makes sense, when there’s no other sense ‘
It’s a shame but sometimes people must stand strong
It worked for Civil rights and Vietnam
And for the rights that women won
And,in each case, it proved the government was wrong

And how did the Feds respond?
Well, they went so far beyond
And murdered citizens for how they think and feel
How many wars, of late, have we been in
Because they lied and fed their spin?
And we lost soldiers, reputation and billions in the deal

You good folks who do not live out here
It’s best you listen close and fear
The systems rigged and now they’re wanting more
They’ve shown willingness to kill
For things against the peoples will
As Americans are we to take much more?

And this ruling with force and fear
Seems to escalate each year
Friends,they are nothing more than ‘enemies of state’
Why would they come with thugs and snipers
Taze and threaten folks like vipers
If what they’re doing is at all legitimate?

And for the mess that we have got
Follow the trail way up the top
They need arrested where they haven’t spread their claws
We go get individual crooks
That are juggling the books
Why does a government job protect them from the law

And accomplices should do time
For participating in the crime
Just as bank robbers, armed and acting tough
I can’t conceive what kind of minds
Would condone these kinds of crimes
Against neighbors just saying, “that’s enough”

And the puppet bureaucrats
Alibi- ing shameful acts
Like the guards did from the concentration camps
Claim “We just do what we are told”
That willingness make tyrants bold
All agencies and powers need revamped

It’s sad but true, it’s come to this
Our government has gone amiss
Just when last did the Senate do its job?
Have they earned thIs kind of clout
Or even your benefit of doubt?
We’d be better off if we dealt with the mob

Remember, Waco, Ruby Ridge, Kent State ?
Will you allow that be our fate?
While we stand up for the rights of me and you
The facts are there, folks, you discern
Stand and show that you ‘re concerned
For the nightmare of Big Brother’s coming true!

And don’t believe there’s “Public Ground”
That just has a pleasant sound
Folks it’s “federal” when they when they want to lock the gate
And our taxes pay for all their crimes
As they grow bolder all the time
Don’t let a police state with a ruler be our fate?”

Western Lawmakers Gather In Utah To Talk Federal Land Takeover

 

federal-land-map-1024x8411

 

 

” It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday.

  More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds.

” It’s simply time,” said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. “The urgency is now.” “

Federal Lands

” Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including her counterparts from Idaho and Montana, during a press conference after the daylong closed-door summit. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee addressed the group over lunch, Ivory said. New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington also were represented.

  The summit was in the works before this month’s tense standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management over cattle grazing, Lockhart said.

” What’s happened in Nevada is really just a symptom of a much larger problem,” Lockhart said.

Fielder, who described herself as “just a person who lives in the woods,” said federal land management is hamstrung by bad policies, politicized science and severe federal budget cuts.

“Those of us who live in the rural areas know how to take care of lands,” Fielder said, who lives in the northwestern Montana town of Thompson Falls.”

Ex-Judge Napolitano: Govt’s Raid On Nevada Ranch ‘Draconian’

 

 

 

 

 

” The federal government used draconian methods in its raid involving Cliven Bundy in an attempt to scare the Nevada rancher in their dispute over grazing rights, said former Judge Andrew Napolitano.

” The draconian, authoritarian way that the government is going after Mr. Bundy is obviously to try and scare him, and scare ranchers, and send a message which is utterly un-American and not consistent with a free people,” Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge, told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday.

  Napolitano said the proper procedure for resolving a dispute would be to file documents in the court system, not through the use of force by the government.

” When you owe the government money, they don’t come with guns and troops. And they don’t threaten the media that are there to cover it. You file a document in the courthouse, and it’s a judgment on the property,” Napolitano said.

  Napolitano said he was “shocked” to see federal agents dressed like troops “in camouflage and with M-16s” adding that the BLM is not “a military or a law-enforcement entity.” “

Exclusive: Sources Inside The BLM and Las Vegas Metro Say Feds Are Planning A Raid On Bundy Home

 

 

Ben Swann  Richard Mack BLM Raid

 

 

 

” As reported yesterday, hundreds of federal agents are still at the Bundy Ranch and the area continues its status as a no-fly zone. Despite major media reports that the Nevada Bureau of Land Management is retreating, the remaining activity that still surrounds the ranch illustrates a different scenario.

  Not only is the BLM not actually backing off of Cliven Bundy, Sheriff Richard Mack of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association has revealed stunning information: on Ben Swann’s radio program, Mack said that he has received intelligence from multiple, credible sources inside the BLM and the Las Vegas Metro that there is “no question” that the federal government is planning a raid on the Bundy home and the homes of their children who live on the property.

  According to Mack, the so-called retreat was nothing more than theatrics. “It was a ploy to get people to back off, to get people out of the way. They weren’t expecting us to get this amount of people here. They were surprised by the numbers and so they wanted a way to get us out of here. This was a ploy to get us out of here and then they’re going after the Bundys.”  Mack said that when he was at the Bundy ranch on Saturday there were an estimated 600 to 800 protesters present when federal agents were releasing the cattle.”

Obama Administration Land Grab Memo Leaked

 

Outlook-US_Map-Basic-Numbered-DRKER_sm

 

 

 

” Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s decades-long battle against the federal government over grazing rights continues, but it may get worse over a leaked memo that was uncovered in 2010 that reveals an Obama Administration land grab initiative that may spread across other western states, possibly causing the same showdown between landowners, ranchers, and the federal government.

  The Tea Party Command Center on Saturday uncovered the lost news report where former Republican Senator Jim DeMint raised the alarm back in 2010 of a leaked memo about a planned, 10 million acre Western land grab by the Obama administration of 17 sites in 11 western states.

  The secret memo stamped, “Internal Draft – NOT FOR RELEASE” was leaked by a Department of Interior official to Utah Congressman Bob Bishop.

  The memo titled, “Prospective Conservation Designation: National Monument Designations under the Antiquities Act” proposes that many nationally significant landscapes are worthy of inclusion in the NLCS and if enacted, could very well set off another BLM and property owner standoffs.”

    This report , combined with the recent actions against Cliven Bundy and Kit Laney lend much credence to Ben Smith’s allegations that the Federal government is conspiring to bring about the conditions necessary to declare martial law .

Feds Engage In Chinese-Style Brutality And Violence

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In 1989, members of China’s Democracy Movement staged a massive protest in Tiananmen Square. In response, the communist Chinese government commanded near-total control over the nation’s media while dispatching heavily armed soldiers and tanks to surround and intimidate the protesters.

  Today, the U.S. government has dispatched hundreds of heavily armed soldiers, snipers and helicopters to lay siege to a ranch near Bunkerville Nevada, called the “Bundy Ranch,” where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870’s. In 1949, the federal Bureau of Land Management was created, and in the 1990’s the BLM claimed (false) authority to start charging “grazing fees” for Bundy’s cattle. Today, the BLM claims the Bundy family owes over $1 million to the government.

  In order to collect that $1 million and lay seize the land the Bundy family has been using for generations, the BLM in engaged in the very same kind of brutality and threat of violence that the Chinese government used against its protesters in 1989. I fact, similarities between the two are numerous:

•  The mainstream media now functions as a total government mouthpiece, broadcasting lies and propaganda such as the false claim that “a protester kicked one of the BLM’s security dogs.” (In fact, a BLM officer verbally commanded the dog to attack the protesters.) This is similar to the Chinese government directly controlling virtually the entire Chinese press.

•  The massive show of unjustified force, such as positioning government snipers on hilltops around the Bundy ranch, with line-of-sight inside the Bundy home so that shots can be taken to kill the Bundy family.

•  The deployment of absurd “overkill” hardware: Tanks in the case of China, and government helicopters in the case of the Bundy ranch in Nevada. It has also been reported by Pete Santilli and Adam Kokesh that BLM has hired Blackwater-style operatives to don BLM badges and wade into the scene as soldiers for hire.

•  The intimidation and silencing of local law enforcement. In the case of the Bundy ranch in Nevada, the local Sheriff of Clark County has the constitutional authority to arrest all BLM personnel for felony theft of cattle and trespassing. Yet he has been intimidated into silence, thereby abandoning his own constituents. In China, officials who were friendly to the protesters were demoted, purged or kidnapped and killed by the Chinese government.

•  The Chinese government declared Martial Law and arrested anyone they wished. Similarly in Nevada, the BLM has declared a state of effective Martial Law by threatening to arrest anyone who sets foot on the desert dirt. The BLM also set up a “First Amendment Zone” and threatened to arrest anyone who strayed outside the zone who wished to express their First Amendment rights. Dave Bundy, son of Cliven Bundy was brutalized and arrested for taking photographs on a public highway. “

A Rancher TELLS ALL:

B. Hunt wrote:

  I live in SW Utah. I grew up on a ranch less than 100 miles from the Bundy’s ranch. My father knows Cliven Bundy. I know Cliven’s son Ryan. This is not a hoax, it is an action of force by the BLM.

  The BLM was going to sell the cattle at one of the smallest cattle markets in Utah.No cattle markets in Nevada would take the cattle without a properly signed brand inspection (which the BLM cannot obtain without Cliven Bundy’s signature). The BLM paid the owner of the Utah cattle market $300,000 to do the sale (‘R’ Livestock Connection in Monroe, Utah, owned by one Scott G. Robbins, according to the Utah Business Entity Search). Utah Governor Herbert stepped in and forbid them from bringing the cattle into Utah without the legally required health and brand inspections (which again, require Bundy’s signature) and that no feral cattle are allowed to be imported at all (per Utah statute). Because Bundy claims ownership over maybe 350-500 head of branded cattle, the other 500-700 estimated head of cattle would all be considered feral. BLM officially backed off, but we suspect they are still secretly shipping them through Utah without any permission to do so, to “private” buyers in Colorado. The contract cowboys that the BLM hired to do the roundup are from Sampson Livestock in Meadow, Utah (traitors one and all).

  From what I understand, Cliven Bundy owns both the Water Rights and Grazing Rights to all of the land where his cattle run. If Bundy failed to use them, the Grazing Rights would revert to the BLM and would be retired, while the Water Rights would revert to the State of Nevada, likely to be sold to the highest bidder (which would probably be a bidding war between mineral companies that are behind this action with the BLM and the City of Las Vegas which is thirsty for water and has had multiple attempts to buy water–through eminent domain from Utah farmers and ranchers–from Utah, which were all blocked by the Utah Legislature and Utah Governor Herbert). Chances are, the BLM has already filed a claim on the water rights so that they can sell to the highest bidder (instead of the state) and are trying to get the cattle off to show that Bundy cannot use the water beneficially (much like what the US Forest Service and BLM both tried to do to Wayne Hage).

  Now, for Cliven Bundy, he’s not fighting this for his cattle or his own livelihood. He recognizes that he will probably die before this fight is over. He has said multiple times that he is fighting this to wake people up about the tyranny of the Federal Government and also to help wake up the western states about getting the rights to their own land back from the federal government, which has repeatedly shut down ranchers and closed off land. (MO = 1st, get all the ranchers, farmers, Native Americans, and foresters that use the land for positive, sustainable production off of the land; 2nd, grab up all the resources; 3rd, close off the lands to public access including camping, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, boating, shooting, etc; 4th, sell off the resources to the highest bidder regardless of what that will do to the land, the local environment, or the economy; 5th, collect royalties on the resources in perpetuity; 6th, reduce and eliminate all SLS and PILT payments to the states, impoverishing them beyond belief.)

Anyway, thanks for posting about this. It is important for us to be able to raise the appropriate resistance.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gripping Speech On Behalf Of Rancher: Which One Of Us Will Snipers Shoot?

 

 

 

 

 

 

” With tensions simmering in the standoff between Nevada rancherCliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management, a Bundy supporter wonders when federal agents are going to “fire the next shot heard around the world.”

  Speaking this week before a packed town hall meeting in Moapa, Nev., with Bundy looking on, the unidentified man offered a gripping account of the dangers residents face, demonstrating why the impasse remains a powder keg waiting to explode, according to a video of his remarks.

  Bundy has locked horns with the federal government because the rancher’s cattle are grazing on public land — the rights to which the family says has been handed down through generations. Now the Bureau of Land Management, insisting the “trespass cattle” have been allowed to graze illegally, is rounding up the livestock.”

The Real Story Behind The Bundy Ranch Harassment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

BLM Rangers Brought In From Out Of State For Nevada Ranch ‘Emergency’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Armed Rangers were brought in from out of state by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to assist in security surrounding the Bundy Ranch, according to the family.

  A heated confrontation on Wednesday resulted in Cliven Bundy’s son Ammon being tasered by BLM officials and a 57-year-old protester being shoved to the ground.

  Stetsy Bundy Cox, Cliven’s daughter, told the Washington Free Beacon that some of the rangers had Oregon and California license plates.

“ You know, some of these guys don’t even know why they’re here,” she said. “A few people have talked to them and they got called in here on an emergency feed and they didn’t know what it was for, it just said they had to be here.”

‘Expect To See A Band Of Soldiers’: Militia Members Arrive At Nevada Ranch

 

 

 

 

” Militia groups are rallying behind a rancher whose cattle are being seized by the federal government.   The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that two militia members from Montana and one from Utah have arrived at Cliven Bundy’s ranch. “ We need to be the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants,” Ryan Payne of the West Mountain Rangers told the Review-Journal. “Expect to see a band of soldiers.”   Payne said that militias from New Hampshire, Texas and Florida are likely to join and stand with Bundy and stay at his ranch. “ They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” Payne told the Review-Journal, adding that hundreds of militia members are expected.”
