Beyond Clive Bundy: The Real Range War and Why We're Losing


Hopefully your Saturday night and Palm Sunday morning activities have given you enough perspective to join me for a brief recap of the attempted federal land grab at the Bundy Ranch and the showdown at the NV Corral. You’ve undoubtedly heard the story by now of how the Bureau of Land Management attempted to evict Clive Bundy and his cows from the family’s centennial ranch (two second argument: tortoise trumps cows; because we said so). And now they’ve backed down, with an agreement that results in the slaughter of Bundy’s cows, for which he will receive half the proceeds. That’s, at least theoretically, a win for the good guys.

Now, here’s the rest of the story: (h/t Infowars and Dana Loesch)

  1. 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, or turtles. Or something. (more additional info here) “Back in 2012, the New American reported that Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, was the chief representative for a Chinese energy firm planning to build a $5-billion solar plant on public land in Laughlin, Nevada.”
  2. Some people claim that what Harry really wants are the water rights, to divert to all his friends in Vegas, baby!
  3. The stated reason for the land grab by the BLM was to protect a the desert tortoise - that is now so populous that the government i...
  4. Although widely reported that Clive Bundy has not paid fees for use of his land, that isn’t quite accurate. He just hasn’t paid what the BLM thinks he should.

Last week hundreds of supporters (deemed the “militia” by the MSM, “armed anarchists” by others) showed up on the disputed land. Fevers were running high and anything might have happened.  That is, prior to news of Harry Reid’s possible connections began to leak. Then, suddenly the Sherriff was able to work out a resolution with Clive, allowing the BLM armored division to back off.

I’m guessing the hostage negotiations were amicably settled for one of several reasons:

  1. Barry didn’t want to be the second black President with blood on his hands.
  2. Ricky didn’t want to be the first black Attorney General with blood on his hands.
  3. Harry told them to back down, as the subsequent investigation would result in a midterm  bloodbath.

The last time a story got a little too close to examining just why people call him “Dirty” Harry, the Feds also withdrew the complaint. Makes you wonder how many pictures, of whom, he has in private dossier.

So I think you’re pretty much up to speed now. When the story started to zero in on Democrat-nerve central, it had to be killed. Same as the cattle that the Feds have already rounded up from the Bundy ranch. Don’t worry though, they’re going to split the proceeds of the slaughter with the Bundy family, which is mighty generous of them, given all the trouble they’ve gone through – the Feds, I mean.


Anyway, this is certainly an interesting little story, butt there’s a much bigger, more interesting story that has been pretty much ignored in MSM.

A two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner’s cattle, according to the rancher’s family.

It’s one of those what-in-the-world is going on here storie: how is it that the Bureau of Land Management came to have armored vehicles and agents armed with military style arms in order to deal with trespassers on their national turtle refuge? If they want to evict someone occupying their land they should have to call the Sherriff - whose job is to enforce the law - just like everybody else. If the Sherriff needs backup, they call in the FBI - whose job is also to uphold the law. As far as I know, the Bureau of Land Management’s job is to, well, “manage the land” not scorch it.

I don’t see anything in BLM’s mission statement about protecting the Constitution (obviously), upholding the law, or forcing evictions. And yet, here they are, with armed agents, armored vehicles and “low-flying” helicopters to round up a rancher’s cattle. What’s wrong with this picture?

first_amendment_areaIt’s a constitutional right, not an “area”

Now every administrative agency (emphasis on “administrative”) in the U.S. government gets to have it’s own SWAT team. Seriously, “Homeland Security aims to buy 1.6b rounds of ammo” would have been a really big story at any other time in the history of the Republic, now it’s barely noted in the MSM.

It’s no wonder we’re going broke. Armies are very expensive. Maybe we should just merge them all into one civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded as the military.

So the moral of the story is this: Don’t count your liberties before they’re secured. Because in a range war between the tortoise and the Harry, freedom is only one generation away from extinction.

Too many agencies do the dirty work for them. One down, many more agency rise up to do the same jobs.

Americans should never have allowed the conception of these illegal government agencies. Americans should never have allowed govt. to place any animal on endangered species list as it is un-Christian. We are told very plainly in Genesis 1 : 26 that we are given dominion over all animals. Govt. has for years used animals as an excuse to dis-allow humans their rights in this nation. When are they going to start arresting illegal aliens for trampling endangered species ? America has reached a tipping point where all presidents and most in congress are fascist. The past four presidents are and have been fascist beyond doubt and their cabinet members are too. The first bush spoke of the "new world order", clinton has the blood of Ruby Ridge and Waco on his hands along with janet reno, the second bush gave America the un-constitutional "patriot act" and the idiot in chief now has virtually destroyed all morals in America. Americans have been sold out.

I've not seen specifics on any of the Bundy pages, but you have to expect such a deal.  It's obvious after this confrontation that there's no way the feds are going to allow him to continue to graze those cattle on that land.  Honestly, if you were Bundy would you trust them out there?  And there's also no way he can keep 600 cattle on 160 acres, I believe that's how many he owns - so that's been the elephant in the room that no one seems to have been acknowledging as they're all doing victory laps today.  Yes, it was a victory in some ways - but also going to signal some real sad decisions and changes in the Bundy's future options.  Not like one big happy ending and things go on business as usual for them.

you  kinda   missed on your timeline.  i recall blm  making  evil noises about   the  properties surrounding  us   in the  late 1960s  they have  been around for a fair bit  of time ( clearly  long enough to forget thr reason  for making)   but the short of my idea is  they are not answerable to anyone at all.  most of the   lettered  government organizations  must be  disbanded.  i have no use for  any of them.  and  they   clearly  have no  need for our support.

Harry Reid has to line his bulging pockets and please his boy toy.

Someone.....please clarify: re: commentary below the first pic above  which states: "And now they’ve backed down, with an agreement that results in the slaughter of Bundy’s cows, for which he will receive half the proceeds".

My question is: did that 'agreement' take place after the BLM retreated yesterday, when protesters/militia pushed through BLM to surround the already captured 100 cattle that were being held in capture pen?

Has any official comment been made or published by Bundy re such an "agreement"?

Having spoken personally to a couple of the auction owners in neighboring states who refused to take those illegally obtained cattle, I think that one good motivating factor that led the feds to be willing to "make a deal" was they realized there was no other way out of their predicament.  Thanks to the auction owners who "stood for something" yesterday too.

Never forget:  "We the [conservative] people" allowed Obama, and the Dem Senate majority, to be elected and then reelected.  

Not enough of us got involved in political party politics where we live.  Not enough of us became poll workers and poll watchers where we live.  Of the 94,375 PAN members, how many are actually voting members of a political party in their precinct or ward with the right to vote to elect their local political party committee officers?  How many of the 94,375 members volunteered on election day to serve as a poll worker or poll watcher at their voting precinct's polling place or elsewhere?

If we want things to change, we have to change the outcome of the elections.  The best place to begin accomplishing that is inside the political party of your choice:

Get Viguerie's book and read and study chapters 22 and 23.  Then act.  [I have no financial interest in the book.]

Words are not enough.  Action is what is required.  Organized and united local political action inside a political party.  Period.  

Or face this question from your kids and grandkids:  "Why didn't you ACT when you still had time to change things at the ballot box?"

I hope this helps.
