Nevada rancher, Clive Bundy, 67 years old/14 children, is the last rancher in his county. He’s had an on-going feud with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management over grazing rights that recently led to his cattle being called trespassers and commenced a round-up. (Atrocity stories quickly followed.)
“What’s happened the last two weeks, the United States government, the bureaus are getting this army together and they’re going to get their job done and they’re going to prove two things. They’re going to prove they can do it, and they’re gonna prove that they have unlimited power, and that they control the policing power over this public land. That’s what they’re trying to prove.” –Clive Bundy
Federal agents (snipers included) have cut off roads to the ranch.
Facebook postings from the rancher and his family show a call for help to local law enforcement (useless), “militias,” and Oath Keepers amongst other such groupings—and they have arrived.
With Environmentalists supporting the government’s efforts to protect a desert turtle, a new propaganda front was provided—the Fed is protecting fracking rights—sure enough, to monkey wrench “Leftwing” reflex.
Ed Abbey approves.
Just takes one Lon Horiuchi or one Andre Strassmeir to turn the events ugly. Stay tuned…
