Carol and Cliven Bundy and the BLM … and UPDATE

April 9, 2014

I wanted to bring attention to a piece over at the Hyscience blog site which goes with one of my posts from yesterday:

Carol and Cliven Bundy and the BLM


Carol Bundy:The story is a lot about the cattle, but the bigger story is about our loss of freedom. They have come and taken over this whole corner of the county. They’ve taken over policing power, they’ve taken over our freedom, and they’re stealing cattle.

And our sheriff says he just doesn’t have authority, our governor says he doesn’t have authority, and we’re saying, why are we a state?The Free Beacon

There are some nine hundred cattle the BLM plans on taking out. Yesterday’s figure was over two hundred removed so far. If they were all Mr. Bundy’s that is nearly 50% of his inventory. Gone his livelihood, gone the jobs his ranch created. Just gone.

The cattle that survive the roundup will be sold by the BLM to pay his back debt owed because they couldn’t get their part of the job done – putting up the fences!

What is it with this government and the damn fences! Don’t build them and “they” will come be they terrorists, the cartel, illegals or cows – and the consequences are felt by/paid for by the people and certainly Mr. Bundy and his family.

A victory but in truth a small one. John Wayne is nowhere in sight.



BREAKING: 200+ “Militarized” Federal Police Surround Peaceful Rancher in Nevada

Via: Conservative Tribune

We’ve seen before at Ruby Ridge and Waco that the feds won’t hesitate to treat peaceful American citizens as hostile and confront them with full armed force.  This is happening yet again in Clark County, Nevada.

For over twenty years now, a battle has raged between cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management.  Bundy has been using federal land to allow his cattle to graze, and the BLM has argued that this is “trespassing” because the land is protected and because Bundy has not paid required grazing fees.

The federal agency has now secured a court order to forcibly confiscate the cattle using heavy artillery.

    Sheriff and governor have signed off. So fat lady has sung.
    Sheriff Richard Mack wrote: “If we are to get America back, if we are indeed to return to the constitutional Republic we were meant to be, then it will be up to us, the sheriffs of America… who have the guts and dedication to tell the feds that we will no longer tolerate their intervention, control, meddling, mandates, or criminal behavior.”

    The Sheriff is the chief law enforcement authority in our county, and he is elected by the ultimate power source, We The People. It is time for us to elect County Sheriffs who will walk tall and defend their citizens from all enemies of our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. The future of our constitutional Republic may depend on it.

    Well said Unit. Personally I think LadyRaven is right though … it’s too little too late.

    But it’s not just turtle people. There’s the wild horse people from what I’ve read. Too big a issue to grasp in a comment. I just say in short … food for humans comes in last. Nothing much mentioned I couldn’t eat when it comes right down to it. Thank goodness for Vienna Sausage, Sardines, and bologna though. Call me a chicken with my head cut off. :)

    Cliven Bundy is one of a long line of Western State ranchers who have been fighting the feds (BLM and USFS) for decades over their historically protected use of the public land and water for cattle grazing. Historically, many court cases have ruled in favor of the ranchers and laws have been enacted to protect their rights. The feds and their legal machine just ignore this fact. They are killing the ranches and the families that own them, one at a time, with their rules and unconstitutional tactics. States have sovereignty in this matter but are being intimidated by the fed’s hammer. The current crisis is just a repeat of the Nevada Wayne Hage battle that started in the 90’s, and was just adjudicated in 2013.


    Déjà vu

    The BLM and Clark County have not acted ethically or honorably in regard to this ranch and rancher. Just reduce the permit and water use incrementally until the rancher has nothing left. He can scarcely afford to fight the Goliath.

    The Bundy case is not really that unique.

    I have never seen such an injustice as what is happening to the Bundys. You know I keep waiting on the shit to hit the fan in this country and it will be something like this that sends our “government” and the militia over the edge. I promise you…there will be lots of americans responding to this bullshit because I have talked to them…yep that’s right Washington….I have actually talked to everyday people and all of them are sickened by our so called government. It’s just a matter of time before we have a civil war in the US and I wonder what the hell is wrong with the politicians….do they not see it? Wake the fuck up people…..or get woken up by a gun in your face…courtesy of the US government.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting Shandy. I honestly believe this situation is the beginning of the very reason why the government has been stock-piling billions of rounds of ammunition. Time will tell but you can bet they were gearing up for something.

      Have you seen this? It came out late last evening.

      Not surprised LadyRaven. I just found a piece over at Dana Loesch’s which sheds a whole new light on the subject. I’m going to re-blog it here momentarily.

    These Bundy pukes belong in jail. This isn’t their land-it’s OUR land and they are using it illegally. Worthless POS.

    • April 15, 2014 7:14 am

      Well Jim, if it’s “OUR” land, I gave them permission to use my part. Go back to sleep.

      Jim – gubment does not see it your way. They see it as THEIR land. If it was “our” land, how come not a one of “us” could get past their fences and defenses last week? Their use of words is interesting – they call it “public” land and in same breath every time we turn around we hear government “owns” whatever.

      I don’t know what got Jim’s panties in a wad LadyRaven. I don’t remember the guy ever commenting here before, but sometimes I get some real winners.

      Jim is under the same incorrect impression that I believe many of us have been, that America is “our” country. It IS our country but when faced with the words and actions of government – they say something entirely different and are willing to show us just exactly who they think owns it. That is quite a shock and there are a lot of Jim’s out there. I certainly was one for the longest.

    • April 15, 2014 12:10 pm

      Those in government believe and demonstrate that ALL things belong to them.

      And that “we” are expected to provide to them ALL things.

    • April 15, 2014 12:42 pm

      Amen sister! Hey, there’s some liberals who actually believe the government owns everything! Man, I can’t take such gross ignorance.
