“This was/is not about “endangered” turtles or grazing fees. This is about treason, sedition, extortion. This is about attempted murder.”

15 April 2014: While many remain oblivious to the strangulation of our most fiercely independent and productive citizens, the American Rancher, this last week’s news cycle sputtered out incomprehensible sound bites about Nevadan Rancher, Mr. Cliven Bundy.
Sometime in the mid 1800’s, long before Nevada was a territory, much less a state, Cliven Bundy’s ancestors settled a tract of land to raise a family and provide a livelihood ranching cattle.
In 1946 another debacle of a government agency was created, The Bureau of Land Management.
Like every single government agency, without exception, the BLM became a bloated bully who’s main contribution to the western states, in particular, was to destroy life, liberty and personal property.
52 other families in Clark County Nevada alone, had long since given up fighting the BLM. Grazing rights were/are typically denied under the guise of protecting “endangered species”, (a common practice nationwide to destroy watermen, farmers, and ranchers), or grazing fees are raised until those, like the Bundy’s, who dug the wells, fenced the land, and managed it just fine, are driven off or bankrupted.
The BLM also threatened the Bundy’s because they declared he owed them more than a million dollars in said “grazing fees”. I’ll say it again, for using the land that has been in his family for 7 generations.
The Bundy’s declared these lands may be “mismanaged” by a federal agency, whose “help” the Bundy’s had long ago declined, but they are Nevada’s property and so they declared all their “fees” would go to the state of Nevada.
Last week the BLM sent hundreds of heavily armed agents to steal the Bundy’s cattle and have them transported out of state for slaughter. Providentially, thousands of fed up American’s were made aware of their plight and showed up in response. In a death defying stand-off that could have turned into a horrific blood bath, the BLM packed up and left.
As Paul Harvey would famously say, “Now, for the rest of the story”…
From INFOWARS: “The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.”
In a nut shell, a sitting Senator, and his lobbyist son Rory, conspired to defraud a man of his ancestral lands by unleashing a fully militarized force under the direction of his crony former senior adviser now heading the BLM in collusion with a communist country.
This was/is not about “endangered” turtles or grazing fees. This is about treason, sedition, extortion. This is about attempted murder. And though the BLM was forced to back down due to the unrelenting courage of Americans who were prepared to draw a line in the proverbial sand and die with their “boots on” right then and there, Harry Reid has promised/THREATENED that “It is not over”.
