Bunkerville residents sound off about BLM, police, media


An emotional crowd gathered for a town hall meeting on Thursday evening in Bunkerville.

Residents and council members praised militia members gathered there in support of embattled rancher Cliven Bundy, but had nothing but vitriol for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie and the local and national media.

"The day the militia [came] was the day I felt safe again in Nevada," one meeting attendee said.

The meeting was standing-room only. City council members had harsh criticism for the media's take on the standoff between Bundy and the BLM.

"I heard things said down there. And then when it came out on the air it was a completely different animal," Bunkerville Councilman Duane Magoon said.

"Tell the whole truth. Don't spin things to get your ratings," another council member added.

One council member criticized Gillespie, saying he's been AWOL in Bunkerville.

"I'm really disappointed in our sheriff for not being out here to protect the citizens who are out here," he said.

One after another, Bunkerville residents criticized the BLM, calling it an example of overreaching government.

"It's insane and a way overreach of their power. They should be held accountable," a meeting attendee said.

@ Terry a.Hurlbut

the BLM over stepped the Law when they came loaded for bear

with guns, stun guns and threaten the rancher and patriots.

The land around the ranch was declared PUBLIC LAND

EXCEPT for the 350 or so acres owed by dirty harry Reid's family.

Reid has done this before with the Hagan ranch in central NEVADA

on public land any person of that state has the Respective Right

to crossand use the land.

And for them to say iot is to protect the Tortist  is a laugh.

When Reid wanted to build high priced housing on his land

No. of Vegas the BLM killed thousand of tortises {excuse my spelling]

and Reid built hundreds of homes and sold them at a very high price.

He has been screwing the people of Nevada for years that I as a resident.

for over 40 years know..

This is pushing the agenda to remove Private Property rights and relocation of People under the Goals of Agenda 21 , but people are waking up ,

SPLC blames “Right-wing conspiracy theorists” for ruining Agenda 21

Yes, I know about Harry Reid's deals. (That China deal fell through, but that did not stop him from looking for other buyers.) I also know the problem is rooted in a serious error that has allowed the federal government to hold vast tracts of land, ostensibly within State borders, for purposes that definitely do not have anything to do with exercising an enumerated power of Congress.

The key phrase is "needful building." A "needful building" is any buillding or other structure or campus that serves a purpose for the exercise of an enumerated power of Congress. A fort, magazine, arsenal, or dockyard is a specifically enumerated needful building. A courthouse is a needful building. A tax office is a needful building.

A land office cannot be a needful building. For the Congress does not have the enumerated power to own or manage grazing land or wildlife refuges.

Were any of you aware that 'Reid' has his dirty hands in 93 acres of land in Nevada and all are around the Bundy Ranch?

Resolve the root problem relative to the Nevada Raid--and the Benghazzi Cover up and a host of similar problems will be resolved.

Comment by Robert James Burkholder on May 4, 2014 at 7:06am

The BLM like  every agent of this corrupt tyranny  --and their lap dogs in the National pres Corps-and their underlings in the local?news do not  represent/care about what "we the people....desire. They represent the ruling class. The  problems that were revealed in the Brady Siege--are related to the problems revealed in the  Administrative  Cover up of the Islamic Terror Victory over the President at Benghazzi where the Presidents'Muslim Brothers  sodomized and destroyed our  Ambassador and those who tried to protect our interests in the gun running deal with the enemy. Here in America we are not Muslim -we are more civilized--we revile and we condemn the Militia when it puts in an appearance-never acting like the Muslims this Administration is controlled by.

The allegation is that the Federal government drew State boundaries but still kept control of the land. All the land involved was a prize of the Mexican War. If that allegation is true, then it stands in violation of Article I, Section 8, Clause 17, which tells the two ways the federal government may acquire or keep land within a State boundary and to what use it may put said land:

  1. By cession from particular States to form a ten-mile-square district for building a capital city, and
  2. By purchase with the consent of the legislature of the State involved, to build a fort, magazine, arsenal, dockyard, or other military post or administrative building, to exercise an enumerated power of Congress.

This sounds like a bait-and-switch. Yet the Progs still defend this retention as necessary and proper to the protection of the environment from over-grazing. Naturally.

They tried this in Alaska, and the whole community went into action. No one would RENT a room to them, sell gas to them, serve them food in a restaurant, etc ....and they finally got the message and left.

The community in Nevada should do the same, The faces of those TRAITORS who "just obeyed orders" and lined up against the PEOPLE....SHOULD be posted, and they should be BE SHUNNED.

I can't believe AMERICANS would serve their Socialist masters in Washington and turn their weapons and dogs, on AMERICAN CITIZENS! But if that is what it's coming to.... it's a sad day for this country.

Did any of those traitors LIVE there, in the area? Did the local people recognize any of them? Where di they come from.....
