Police State USSA: Feds Vs Rancher Face Off
One freedom at a time, one right at a time, one battle at a time, we the people are losing each and every one of our liberties to federal authorities, and will continue to do so until we stand up against them together.
The story below is yet another example of the police state USSA in action.
Once again a situation where federal authorities arbitrarily change laws and rules and just expect the general public to blindly follow those rules.
Well one man, a rancher by the name of Cliven Bundy, has refused and does not recognize any federal authority over the land and now dozens of armed federal officers, rangers and agents, are preparing a showdown with this one older gentleman you will see in the video below.
To understand the principle Bundy is fighting for, one has to know that Mr. Bundy’s forefathers have been up and down that area since 1877, yet in 1993 the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) decided to change the grazing rules for Gold Butte to protect the endangered desert tortoise, an area Bundy and his family had been using since before the BLM even existed.
Bundy’s message is simple: “This has become a police state, and this is an example of it right here.“
The example he talks about is how the Feds have set up a “free speech zone” in the area, a media zone and have created a wall of agents to prevent the general public from entering a 600,000-acre section of “public land,” as they prepare to round up Bundy’s cattle and sell it off.
“With all these rangers and all this force that is out here, they are only after one man right now. They are after Cliven Bundy. Whether they want to incarcerate me or whether they want to shoot me in the back, they are after me. But that is not all that is at stake here. Your liberty and freedom is at stake,” Bundy said.
Bundy continues on to tell reporters “My forefathers have been up and down the Virgin Valley ever since 1877. All these rights I claim have been created through pre-emptive rights and beneficial use of the forage and water. I have been here longer. My rights are before the BLM even existed.”
He has fought this battle politically, legally and through the media, he says, his neighbors support him, and he vows he will “fight it on the ground if I have to.”
One man is standing up for not only his rights, but for freedom and liberty…… who will stand with him?

Militias head to Nevada rancher’s standoff with feds: We’re not ‘afraid to shoot’
WE NEED ALL PATRIOTS TO RALLY IN DEFENSE OF BUNDY RANCH.
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s decades-long battle against the federal government over grazing rights has heated to the point where militia groups have joined in and taken up spots against the feds who’ve circled his land — and talk is, they’re not afraid to open fire.
A spokesman for the one of the militia groups said as much to local 8 News Now: I’m not “afraid to shoot,” he said.
Margaret Houston, Mr. Bundy’s sister and a cancer survivor, said at a town hall gathering this week that the situation “was like a war zone” and that she felt “like I was not in the United States,” The Daily Mail reported.
U.S. officials ended a stand-off with hundreds of armed protesters in the Nevada desert on Saturday (April 12, 2014), calling off the government’s roundup of cattle it said were illegally grazing on federal land and giving about 300 animals back to the rancher who owned them.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is weighing in on a high-profile dispute between a Nevada cattle rancher and the federal Bureau of Land Management.
“Well, it’s not over,” Reid, D-Nev., told KRNV-TV in Reno on Monday (April 14, 2014). “We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.”
The feds on Saturday released about 400 head of cattle it had seized from Cliven Bundy, whom the bureau says owes more than $1 million in grazing fees for letting his livestock eat on public lands.
BLM spokesman Craig Leff told the Associated Press the agency would try to resolve the matter with Bundy “administratively and judicially.”
In a radio interview Monday with Glenn Beck, Bundy said Monday his dispute with the BLM goes beyond livestock grazing.
“I feel it’s a constitutional thing; it’s a state sovereignty thing; it’s a county government thing,” Bundy said, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
Feds Desperate to Hide Harry Reid Link to Bundy Land Grab.
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.
The feds are so desperate to hide Harry Reid’s connection to a Communist Chinese energy company linked to the Cliven Bundy land grab, they are now even deleting Google’s cached version of an explosive document originally deleted from the BLM website.
Militia groups fear infiltration by feds.
(8 News Now) – Militia groups are still surrounding the Bundy ranch days after the BLM ended its roundup of cattle. There is concern among some of them that they have been infiltrated by undercover federal agents.
One man, among the self-described militia, says at least two federal agents went undercover to gather information and are preparing to make arrests. This latest information is causing increased tensions among those who say their goal is to protect rancher Cliven Bundy. Around 50 people remain at the ranch, many living in tents, and are prepared to stay for weeks, even months. The men say they took an oath to protect, but they are worried there is a rat in the ranks
“When you pledge your life and your fortune, you’re prepared to give it up,” said Bobby Bridgewater, an Oath Keeper.
An atmosphere of uncertainty now surrounds the Bundy ranch. The so-called security guards aren’t sure, but they believe it’s possible federal agents are among them, posing as militia.
“You don’t know until you actually catch somebody,” Bridgewater said. ”It is always something that we’re always thinking about.”
The Bundy supporters gathered in Bunkerville to protect the Bundy family. Cliven Bundy has allowed his cattle to graze illegally for 20 years on public lands. The feds began rounding up the cattle about three weeks ago, but stopped after some armed supporters interfered. Those supporters took Bundy’s cattle back from a federal holding pen. The militia continue to guard Bundy and the nearby hills 24 hours a day.
Former Bundy guard Frank Lindysthe says it is all very troubling.
“They are now calling for militia. They’re not in dug in positions, they are sitting on top of ridges. They don’t have night vision capability,” he said.
Lindysthe left the ranch in the middle of the night after at least two men tried joining the guard. He said the men made him uncomfortable.
“The people that are up there, they have a certain look about them. These are military. My belief is federal agents,” he said.
Lindysthe feels the alleged federal agents are there to gather information on militia members and eventually conduct a raid.
“They’re dirty. They’re dirty,” he said.
But, despite that belief, most of the militia show no signs of leaving and many say they’re ready to die fighting.
The BLM is declining any on camera interviews and there’s been no talk of any arrests connected to the dispute.
