Cliven Bundy cannot rest easy. The Bureau of Land Management withdrew its 200 armed agents (including war dogs!) – for now. But they’ll be back. Because a rich and powerful Senator will send them back. More than that: Cliven Bundy is the canary in the mine. The poison gas of tyranny and official corruption will choke him. Unless freedom-loving people everywhere offer their help.
Latest on the Cliven Bundy story
A television station local to Bunkerville, Nevada, suggested the Bureau of Land Management withdrew its forces “for reasons of public safety.” In fact, the BLM agents and their police allies threatened to shoot the man or woman who approached. Demonstrators approached anyway. And the BLM had a choice: fire on peaceful civilians, or withdraw. The first embedded video shows how the scene played out.
Here is the video you WILL NOT SEE on the mainstream media. The BLM did NOT simply “leave” and return the Bundy cattle. They were going to KEEP the cattle — until a group of brave patriots and cowboys from 7 Western states stood up to sniper guns and FORCED the release themselves.
Notice the calves among the cows. The round-up of Cliven Bundy’s cattle happened during calving season. About fourteen calves were orphaned; at least one died.
Nor does the story end. The FAA keeps a no-fly zone over the Cliven Bundy land, effective at least until May 11, 2014. The only pilots who may fly in the area, are BLM pilots.
Furthermore, Senator Harry W. Reid (D-Nev.), Cliven Bundy’s senior senator, snarled, “It’s not over.” He went on:
We can’t have, in America, people that violate the law and just walk away from it.
Can’t have that? Reid could have fooled CNAV. He once cleared $1.1 miillion in a Las Vegas land deal, though he hadn’t owned the land involved in three years. (Yahoo!News seems to have sanitized their own archive of this story. But the Sweetness and Light blog still carried the original text. CNAV would dearly love to see the AP sue S&L for copy-vio. They then would have to admit the story was genuine, wouldn’t they?)
To put it bluntly, the people are being hoodwinked into believing that the situation is being resolved. It is not. It is a strategic de-escalation to fool the public.
Hagmann said further: the BLM knew armed militiamen and other patriots would resist them. Even they didn’t know how strongly they would resist. They tried to manage the news, too. “in some cases threatening to cut off White House access to anyone covering the event.”
That might explain why Fox News Channel have lately not given Cliven Bundy his due. To be sure, some Fox News personalities have. Sean Hannity, for one. And Judge Andrew P. Napolitano. But Bret Baier and his reporter-on-the-scene seemed to think Cliven Bundy was wrong not to pay the grazing fees at the heart of the public dispute. “Judge Nap,” as one might expect, points out the BLM has a far more civilized way to collect a money judgment against any landowner without bringing guns.
Whenever the government suspects anyone of breaking the law, two questions arise:
- Has the one the government accuses, actually broken any laws?
- Does the government act as it should, showing the proper respect for the rights that person still has?
Recall what Thomas Jefferson said:
- All people are created equal.
- God endows people with certain inalienable rights.
- They include life, liberty and property.
- To “secure these rights,” people form governments. Those governments “derive their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
- When a government violates those rights, the people have the right to change it.
That aside: Harry Reid likely has a motive far beyond ensuring respect for the law.
Harry Reid really is after Bundy’s land.
Recall that Kit Daniels at Infowars.com broke the story of Harry Reid going after Cliven Bundy’s land. Wynton Hall at Breitbart.com said a year ago that Rory Reid, Harry’s son, represented a Chinese engineering firm. That firm wants to build a $5 million, 5,000-acre solar power collecting farm in Nevada. And Cliven Bundy’s cattle are in the way.
All Daniels had was this link to a page at Free Republic. A regular reader copied text from a page that, according to both people, the BLM sanitized from their site.
But yesterday the folks at Storm Clouds Gathering published much more. They have a screen cap of the old Google cache of the BLM site. View it for yourselves, at the right. Or follow one of these two links. And watch the third embedded video, in which SCG’s head narrates how he found the cache. (By the way: he debunks the earlier theory the BLM were after the land for fracking royalties. The natural gas is well away from Clark County. So that is a red herring.)
Cliven Bundy now openly calls for his fellow Nevadans to remove Senator Reid from office, somehow, some way. But ex-Sheriff Richard Mack warns the BLM is preparing a strategy for a full-scale raid on the Cliven Bundy ranch. They will lay on that raid as soon as any militia groups go home.
Sheriff Mack’s Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association will have details of anything further that happens on the Cliven Bundy ranch. Sheriff Mack was at the ranch on April 12, and even had the support of the President of the Arizona Senate and the Speaker of Arizona’s House of Representatives.
