The federal government backed down and ended their siege against Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy less than 24 hours after a story broke connecting the land grab to Harry Reid and a Chinese-backed solar farm.
So who is behind this and why? Is it Harry Reid once again or some other politician?
I believe we should demand to know the truth.
At the end of the day the Federal Government never backs down in these cases so either one of two things are at play.
1. Someone high ranking in our political system is concerned about being investigated or exposed.
2. The BLM and Federal Government are just announcing this reversal now so all of Bundy and his supporters let their guard down. Allowing the BLM to formulate a massive sting operation that would be over in a few hours once launched. Way before supporters could remobilize.
Whatever the case maybe the American people deserve to know what is going on and the real truth of who is behind this.
Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally.
However, Bundy’s herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a “range war” against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of his sons was arrested while protesting the removal of the cattle.
“I have no contract with the United States government,” Bundy said. “I was paying grazing fees for management and that’s what BLM was supposed to be, land managers and they were managing my ranch out of business, so I refused to pay.”
The federal government had countered that Bundy “owes the American people in excess of $1 million ” in unpaid grazing fees and “refuses to abide by the law of land, despite many opportunities over the last 20 years to do so.”
However, today the BLM said it would not enforce a court order to remove the cattle and was pulling out of the area.
“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,” BLM Director Neil Kornze said.
That is what we call a lie and we want to know the truth behind this change in policy. Everyone knows the Federal Government never reverses like this, NEVER.
“We ask that all parties in the area remain peaceful and law-abiding as the Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service work to end the operation in an orderly manner,” he said.
The roundup began April 5, following lengthy court proceedings dating back to 1993, federal officials said. Federal officers began impounding the first lot of cows last weekend, and Bundy responded by inviting supporters onto his land to protest the action.
“It’s not about cows, it’s about freedom”
Clashes between demonstrators and authorities took a violent turn on Wednesday, with cell phone video showing some being tasered at the site, including Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy. Two other protesters were detained, cited and later released on Thursday, according to the BLM.
As the movement grew by the day, and demonstrators rallied together, bonding by campfires at night, local protest leaders warned people not to wear camouflage and keep their weapons inside their vehicles.
“It’s about the freedom of America,” said another of Bundy’s sisters, Margaret Houston. “We have to stand up and fight.”
