Default The Bundy Ranch Showdown

So the truth on the Bundy Ranch showdown is really starting to come out. It's some straight up 1800s wild west shit going on out there.

Before anyone tries to say it's all the rancher's fault... It isn't. The Feds only MANAGE the land. They are not the owners. The state and county own the land. The rancher has tried repeatedly to pay his "usage fees" to the rightful owners of the land over the years. The feds have no legal standing to charge anyone for anything when it comes to using the land. That's why he hasn't paid them. The bull shit the feds are pulling is nothing but extortion.

Now on to the real issue behind the matter. It has nothing to do with the desert tortoise. BLM is euthanizing over a thousand of the tortoises because they "lack funding" to keep them alive AND because the area is now severely overpopulated by the tortoises... which makes it interesting since this problem came to be even while the cattle were grazing out there. Safe to say the cattle had zero impact on the tortoises.

Now for what is really going on... BLM has auctioned off leases to oil and natural gas companies so they can develop drilling and hydraulic fracking operations on the very land that they claim is so important to the tortoises. Imagine that. To make matters worse... the whole show down involving that specific land the rancher and his family have been using for generations leads back to none other than Harry Reid and his son. They brokered a deal with a Chinese power company to develop that piece of land and build solar and wind plants on it. They can't move forward on that deal (which will make Harry Reid and his son and partners a MASSIVE amount of cash) until Mr. Bundy and his cattle are removed. The current director of BLM that is running this tyrannical shit show trying to force them out and are currently STEALING his cattle is none other than a former Harry Reid staffer.

This is an extremely corrupt politician using federal resources and violence to chase out a cattle rancher so he can move forward with lining his own pockets in partnership with a CHINESE company. Nothing more. It has nothing to do with unpaid "grazing" fees that the federal government has no legal standing to even charge. This is also why so many national militia organizations like The Oathkeepers, 3%ers and many other Constitutional Advocacy groups including the Constitutional Sheriff's Association and even the state Governor and a mess of lawmakers both in the state and in D.C. are on the rancher's side.

The actions of BLM and the feds out there are absolutely insane. If the feds don't back down this is going to become an actual armed uprising against the federal government... and it's all because Harry Reid wants to make money with his Chinese buddies.

BLM and other federal law enforcement out there are now actively stopping militia members showing up to the ranch to support them and are illegally seizing their legally owned firearms and ammunition for no other reason than having them... in the middle of nowhere. It's been confirmed by the media and Bundy Ranch.

I have been following this for the last several days as it has been unfolding. It absolutely disgusts me. The BLM created a "first amendment zone" for people to express their opinion. The only problem is everywhere in our country is a first amendment zone.

No joke there.

They even got the FAA to declare the area a no fly zone because Bundy has been doing overflights of his property and the surrounding area to keep tabs on the feds.

Lmfao

AT&T just messaged the Bundy Families phones and stated the following: "AT&T supports Cliven Bundy and family in there time of struggle!"

I think that was a friendly way of AT&T letting them all know that all of their phones are now being monitored.

This is going to be an interesting mid term election if enough word of what is happening gets out.

It's growing by the minute. Fox News has been running stories on the situation and even showed the videos of the feds attacking members of the Bundy family with tasers, K9s and even throwing down a 60 year old cancer patient.

I don't know about that. Up until last night, pretty much all of the state run "news" outlets have been ignoring the story completely. Went on MSN's U.S. news page today, and the story was there, but WAAAAY at the bottom of the page, with info from about 3 days ago. Go to some of the liberal garbage websites, and they are all in agreement that the Fed is holy as hell through all of this, and are pretty much calling for an airstrike on the ranchers and their supporters. Extra strength Kool Aid being being guzzled through a beer bong on this one by the Left.

And that's exactly what it is too.

This entire thing is happening simply because Harry Reid wants to make money from his Chinese supporters.

It's INSANE.

That's pretty much what I've been seeing too.

This nation is so polarized that there is no longer a US based news service that isn't slanting the news.

I've looked on foreign news outlets, it's not even mentioned.

Uncle Sam's Misguided Children is doing a pretty good job of covering the situation out there.

Was just on the road and turned on WJR to see if they had anything about it. Heard 3 different news reports over time. Their CBS news feed had stories about an Ebola outbreak, the missing jetliner, Hillary getting a shoe thrown at her, and a 9 month old baby charged with murder in Pakistan. Not a peep about the standoff.

Damn near everything these days is government controlled or watched. The major news reports only what they want you to hear, and examples like this aren't something you usually hear about.
