Militia on their way to Bundy Ranch in Nevada: Showdown between Feds and State Rights Supporters

Over the last week, we have extensively covered the showdown at the Bundy Ranch in Clark County, Nevada; today, things took a turn for the worse as militia from around the country mobilized and started making their way into Nevada.

The showdown started when Federal officials sent in Armed BLM agents to steal Cliven Bundy’s cattle, and in the process closed off over 600,000 acres to the public. This land, which is used by hunters and fisherman throughout Nevada and Arizona, has been officially closed down by the BLM, who says it will remain closed until at least May 12th.

But many in the area are warning that this is about much more than just Cliven Bundy and his cattle. In fact, many people believe it could be about stealing mineral rights and handing the land over to oil shale development. According to documents from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, over the last couple of years, a number of exploratory drilling sites have been set up within the closure zones.

Whether this is about oil, or yet another attempt by the feds to limit State Rights isn’t really clear at this point. What is clear, is this is much larger than the Bundy family or their Cattle.

In the process of shutting down the land, the BLM has suspended Free Speech in the Area and has actually setup so-called free speech zones miles away from the ranch. That’s right, the federal government has actually banned free speech on over 600,000 acres of public land.

Dave Bundy, son of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy, spoke to us about what the BLM is doing, and how he was beat down by federal officers for taking pictures outside of these “Free Speech Zones.”

Over the weekend, while attempting to document the theft of his father’s cattle, Dave Bundy went onto his father’s land to take pictures of the cattle roundup. In the process, he was confronted by armed BLM agents who threatened to arrest him.

Bundy told the BLM officers, “How can you arrest me? I’m exercising my first amendment rights to be here.” When the BLM officers started advancing on him he dialed 911 in an attempt to get county officers to help him. In his words, “I called to let them know these guys were getting vicious.”

While he was on the phone with 911 operators, he says the BLM officers then “attacked me like a wild pack of dogs, and started stomping and kicking me in the head.”

When asked about the BLM’s claim that he was resisting arrest, Bundy told me, “I was exercising my 1st amendment rights; but you really can’t even consider what I was doing as protesting. All I was doing was taking pictures. I honestly never thought it would come to that.”

BLM attempting to regulate area farmers and ranchers out of existence.

Cliven Bundy is actually the last of 52 ranching families in the area. Over the last couple of decades, the BLM has systematically regulated these ranchers out of business; canceling permits and laying claim to large areas of their land in the process.

Local farmers are warning that this is likely to spread into Arizona and Utah, and voiced their concerns at a Townhall meeting in Moapa, Nevada last night.

        Yes I have noticed this too with twitter blocking any bad tweets that show Google in a bad light and Google is screwing search results so much that only one tenth of the internet is ever visible from the first five pages.

        All the big sites are americian and they conspire to hide anything they don’t like and only allow controlled sources, again mostly american.

        Youtube is fast approaching the point where it will have deleted more video’s then it has to view.

      It sounds to me like this site and some others are trying to really twist this whole thing. I have lived in this area since 2009 and noone has EVER mentioned Oil or Gas or drilling. That have talked about making the Gold Butte area a State Park to help protect the habit, red rocks, petroglyphs, etc. Quit lying to people please.

          There is a Document entitled “Federal Jurisdiction Within the States” this was put together by order of President Eisenhower in the 50’s. Put together by the US Attorney General at that time, and also by all Attorney Generals of the States. The document fully explains the authority of the Federal Government within the States. Also tells what lands they have within the States up until that time. For the Federal Government to have exclusive authority the State must first cede the land to the Federal government and if it has not then the State also has concurrant authority so on so forth. GET a copy of this document off the internet and read it. Get copies to your sheriffs and to your Governor etc. Most times they really don’t know what authority they have over the Federal Government. If the feds want to go into a State for some type of law enforcement on land of the State or within the State they must first get permission from the Sheriffs. They are the top law enforcers of the States. They can call up the State Militias for assistance as needed. Also the document gives court cases where the issues have been determined!

            Most public land was taken in the Appalachians during the Great Depression, largely open range of chestnuts to graze wild life cattle, pigs , mules, and other grazing animals. Families were displaced in mill type villages and it became various parks and national forest such as Cherokee, Chattahoochee, and so on. Farmers were forced to leave the chestnut range. Conveniently the chestnut blight came at the same time and the chestnut range was ruined. I have always wondered if the blight was introduced to help control the people. Poverty was intense maybe like post ww2 Russia. Logging tycoons Like Vanderbilt even pulled out. So if the feds decide to take watch out; they learned to take what they want during and after the War for southern independence. I commend the citizens of Nevada to exercise their rights, But I was disappointed that the local sherif did not make the BLM cease and desist. We had a smaller but similar problem when the Government shut down Happened Last early fall. Two armed guards from the Dept. of the Interior kept tourist from entering the parking lot of Pisgah Inn and no local sherifs made them leave and the Parkway is the border there for at least 3 counties. Call your congressional office in large numbers.
            South Carolina found a large Motherlode of gold north of Columbia and the US leased the mine to Canada. I don’t understand business or the government. I do however like to make out first.

          I live in Moapa Valley he is telling the truth. I am a progressive democrat not a fox news watching crazy. The issue is not bundy’s cows but the way the federal government is handling public land. The turtles are not hurt by cows. The BLM are not trained to handle pressure situations like this they are scared and jumpy and going to hurt someone. They have at least they stopped driving thru town with machine guns. They are still driving in residential areas were my kids ride there bike at speeds twice the post limit. It is like a war zone.

            Hitler had his thugs too, and if the Feds are determined to follow in his foot steps then the American public has lost representation. What is really weird is that as soon as the gov. started asking for gun control the assailants went from shootings to knifings. Will they take our steak knives too. Dangerously if they can create terrorist then they can create an excuse to control. How far will it go. If I stir up a bunch of desert turtles in a soup pot, how many will it take to produce a human? If I don’t try to help the cause the feds have created then am I worth that many turtles?

        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.

        • Bob
          April 12, 2014 at 6:41 am

          Reid is rapidly declining mentally due to his age and other factors, he is becoming malicious, vindictive and very bitter, he is not totally in control of his thought process, this is med. fact, you’ll never see it public, it would cause his removal.

I bet the infiltration is on going now and is in full swing. any true militia people that go to this are walking into a well laid trap imho. the government obviously wants to get a shooting war started so they can start their military martial law plans. it will be easy to see who the agents are. they are the ones that walk out of this scot free.

          Rocko, you need to research why the Militia did announce their movements. They did so to coordinate with members of the retired law enforcement community so all could arrive at the location together and in force. You also have to remember that the Militia’s are made up of Military Veterans from all MOS’s and retired Law Enforcement Officers. Almost all are combat ready and very capable of defending themselves against any type of attack.

However, in Bundy’s defense, if the feds really really wanted to protect a tortoise, they should just restrict the land, period. Charging ranchers more money isn’t going to help that turtle.

          Other ranchers pay grazing fees, which amount to a few dollars per head of cattle. What Bundy did was an affront to every honest rancher in this nation. He has something like 800 cattle illegally grazing on public land.

They wanted the land for solar for China and used other things as excuses. Someone needs to start standing up for their freedom I’m proud of the bundy family.

        Three Things. 1.) There is a process to amend the Constitution, that requires approval by 2/3 of the states. Use it or Americans should fight you to the death. Your death hopefully. 2.) Remember that our military is part of the Federal government. We swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States (and by implication the American people). We are paid by the Federal government, but do not vilify all Feds. 3.) The “Tea Party” is composed of principled Americans, whether democrats, independents, or republicans. Do not ignorantly condemn us.

    I think everyone “missed the boat” on this one. Everyone commented on everything, but the title of the article. The issue, THE REAL ISSUE is: what happens when those militia from around the nation show up? Don’t forget your history, people: the Civil War began precisely because a federal fort in South Carolina was SURROUNDED by state troops and fired on the fort. Again, if those militia get into an armed confrontation with BLM personnel, this thing could light the fuse to something bigger. Consider the implications. I have. Remember: those who ignore the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them.

I for one wish I was there to help support the little guy. Get real, a free speech zone, You can take that free speech zone and shove it as far as you can. Maybe it would hit your brain and then you could figure everything out.

      Just so you know, all the land is ours, not thiers. But they tell me what I can or can’t do.

It isn’t about a person named “Judy” has to write or say, it’s about what’s happening in Arizona and the possibility of it escalating to something bigger than it is. That’s the purpose of this discussion, not to read reactions to what ONE person writes. As for geological maps and protection of some tortoise, who needs a reason to do what they do? It’s called “rationalization.”

      • portun81
        April 11, 2014 at 6:58 pm

        If the BLM “designated” this land as “public” what legal method did they use and is this the typical government definition meaning “people are banned unless they buy permission from us ” ? The tortoise and all the other native animal life seemed to be doing just find before and after cattle grazing. Even so nowhere in the Constitution do provisions to value animals over people , or at all , or to “protect” them appear. So, first they stole the land , then decided to extort money to use it and then claimed some animal had rights to it and deemed themselves the animals’ mercenary enforcers against the “public” who supposedly own the land , right ?
        If someone threatens another with deadly force when that person attempts to use or enter their own property or denies that person access through extortion demands backed up by deadly force then that is grounds for self defense as well as RICO violations.
        Will the state ( you know , the people’s representatives ) back the represented or their own power grab and organized crime syndicate ? The stare/fed. hired thugs hace already cgosen and will gladly murder their own people because their bosses are the criminals and the criminals will absolve them since they are the law themselves. Maybe they can bring in Ruby Ridge killer Lon Hariuchi (?) to show the new snipers how to kill mothers carrying their children and then claim the murder is justified seeing how their victims were a threat to “the people”. Maybe they can laugh it up after while they compare body counts and brag about how macho they are for murdering civilians. How ’bout it , Lonny boy , why don’t you headvon over to Nevada and show all your fellow thugs what a man you are for murdering an unarmed mother in cold blood ? Maybe you can get another “Murderer of the Year” cop badge from your self-congratulating “heros” of “law enforcement”. I’m sure there are plenty more nurderer wannabe fed’s just itching to join your proud civilian death squadvand earn their “Killer of Innocents” merit badges.

England is a great nation but she was wrong and South Carolina with the help of God, kicked her ass. During the War for southern Independence the south would have won but lost because God hates slavery. We don’t have slaves anymore, but if old soldiers such as yourselves don’t be very careful we will all be slaves. If SC gets into it this time she will help America win again.

      You’re right – it is time to take back the Country and Constitution, but the place to do it is Washington DC – not out in the wilds of Nevada. You’ve let the Feds choose the battleground, in the open terrain with no cover, little chance of collateral damage and the ease of eliminating you with a couple of helicopter gunships or an A-10 Warthog. Throw in a couple of fuel-air bombs and it’s over. The Iraqi Army learned this lesson the hard way in 1991. This is NOT 1861. Learn from the Afghanis – and the tactics from the American Revolutionary War against Britain. Face to face confrontation with a superior force doesn’t work.
