This is just one of the reasons our forefathers saw the need for the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Hundreds or armed civilians, many of them ex and retired military, came to help this Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy. It appears the Federal Government wanted Bundys property to create a Chinese solar power plant, who have connections with Senator Harry Reids family. Another problem is YOU have probably NOT heard anything about this on the liberal broadcast channels or in your favorite socialist newspaper. Makes you wonder why the Federal Government bought many armored vehicles, thousands of automatic weapons, and millions of rounds of hollow point bullets for the likes of Homeland Security and the Justice Department. Y'ALL need to start paying attentionÖ..
Where is the news coverage by the sorry newspapers and media. The Fort Worth Star Telegram headline referred to a bingo parlor activity for a headline and not one word about the
200 federal marshalls beating and bullying the Rancher Bundy family. Look at the scrub brush that these imbeciles want to collect 1.1 milion dollars for grazing cows on. Is This
what you want to see in this country. I hope you will write, call or email your Congress person and let them know that this kind of threat does not meet the smell test. If I spit
in the street it is illegal by law, but I don't want a bunch of feds to come and hassle me over it. Rancher Cliven Bundy most likely faced a warrant albeit a ridiculous to remove
his cows from public property, but someone please explain to me why it's OK to use a small army of federal marshalls with millions of dollars worth of trailers and equipment
which WE THE TAXPAYERS are footing the bill for to roust and intimidate a man and his family who believe that public lands are for the use of anybody if its not fenced or its
not part of Area 51 or some other covert government operation. A large contingent of militia showed up to be part of the protest in support of the rancher and they were
armed. Is this the road that Obama is taking us down by using the federal police state to threaten and intimidate citizens who believe they have rights as free people. This
was an initiative by Obama's Department of Justice, chief thug (Eric Holder) who had to sign off on this agregious over reach. Look at the pictures of the scrub land called
public lands hardly worth creating a stir over but here you have 200 feds and a warrant to collect 1.1 million dollars for grazing fees or they confiscate cows and ranch.
What the hell is that. The IRS can attach the property and freeze any transactions without the use of force and that's the way it used to be. Al Sharpton has owed three
million dollars back taxes for years and I don't see anybody storming his National Activity Network Offices which he uses to do his race baiting and support for Obama. I
also know for a fact that Congressman Charlie Rangel democrat from NY owes hundreds of thousands of dollars back tax for properties he forget to include in his tax
retuns and they are not ingringing on his life maybe because he is a water boy for the Whitehouse. I am mad as hell and I hope someone can tell me why Rancher
Cliven Bundy is so evil that he must be treated like a criminal by the people that we expect to protect our constitutional rights. The Govt would have to pay me to use
that patch of prairie the feds are trying to turn into another Branch Davidian disaster. Holder is under a contempt of Congress order for his ATF gun running violation
of federal law, does that sound like an attorney general who has the best interest of Amricans in mind. Harry Reid, democrat Senate leader is suspected to be the one
behind the scenes pulling the strings to activate Comrade Holder, so that Reid could use the public land in Nevada for a wind farm or some other green energy plant
that would enrich one of Obama's campaign supporters. That's what I suspect, because Harry has made millions on a 160 acre plot he sold through a front man by
funneling a 20 million dollar ear mark for a new bridge near his land, to the county that paid him back by approving a new zonng ordinance from commercial to residential.
Please pass this on if you give a damn.
Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!
As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it's outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre.
It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so quickly, given all they had indicated they were willing to do to resolve the matter to their satisfaction. They had set up a perimeter around the Bundy's family land, ranch, and home. They had brought in extra artillery, dogs, and snipers. They were beginning the process of stealing more than 300 head of cattle that did not belong to them.
They did so--or so we were told--for the reason of protecting the desert tortoise. But then it was revealed that the Bureau of Land Management had shot far more desert tortoises than the Bundy cattle had even possibly destroyed. We were told they did it because the Bundys had broken federal laws by not paying what amounted to retroactive grazing fees to the federal government. But the Governor of the state of Nevada told us that Bundy had paid every ounce of state tax, met the state requirements, and their family had been improving the property more than 100 years previous.
Finally we were allowed to know the connection between a communist Chinese wind/solar power plant and its connection to that senator named Harry Reid. Evidently a plan had been hatched to use the Bundy property for a solar farm and instead of paying the Bundys, someone, somewhere in the administration believed it was easier to just take what they wanted.
That approach is at least consistent with the readily documented abuse of imminent domain where the government for any number of reasons--few of them valid--have taken to taking what doesn't belong to them. Americans then watch as it gets handed over to some multi-national corporation for the "cause" of the "greater good."
There were a few specific reasons why the feds chickened out in the Nevada desert though.
Technology - As the Bundy family members were abused, cameras captured it. Not television network cameras, but dozens of cell phone video devices that gave witness to a Bundy aunt being shoved to the ground, and a Bundy son being tazed. All of this while threatening protestors with dogs, brandished weapons and vehicles was captured, uploaded and made viral to the watching world.
