“Red Dawn”: Supporters Rally to Defend Family Facing Showdown With Feds

Waco-style confrontation looms in Nevada as Bundy threatens “range war”

cliven bundy feds stole cattleSupporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy violated a “First Amendment Area” by staging a rally in support of Bundy, who earlier declared a “range war” against federal authorities in response to a land dispute that threatens to escalate into a Waco-style standoff.

Bundy is currently embroiled in a spat with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over his long standing refusal to acknowledge a 1993 modification to grazing rights on land that Bundy asserts has been in his family since 1870. On Saturday, hundreds of federal officials, aided by helicopters, low flying aircraft and hired cowboys, began rounding up Bundy’s cattle in northeastern Clark County.

The feds say the move is about enforcing the law and protecting the endangered desert tortoise, but the Bundy family says the spat represents a showdown between big government and American farmers.

“We’ve had enough, we’re going to take our land back, we’re done,” said Bundy’s wife, Carol Bundy, adding that the rally was held “to show that we are not standing alone. People are getting tired of the federal government having unlimited power.”

More than 100 supporters violated a crudely taped off “First Amendment Area” to rally in support of the Bundy family, erecting two flagpoles with the words “We the People” attached, above a flag which read, “Liberty Freedom For God We Stand”. The first amendment area stood empty, with one sign nearby declaring, “1st Amendment is not an area.”

“I grew up on this ranch. This is what we knew,” said Margaret Houston, Cliven Bundy’s younger sister. “It’s got nothing to do with the cattle and the tortoises. It’s about taking our rights — power — and it’s wrong.”

“Right now it looks like the movie Red Dawn,” said, Ryan Bundy. “Right now we’ve got 200 plus federal agents up there in a military compound that they have put together and they’ve got snipers….everybody’s armed, and they’ve been monitoring our ranch with high-tech surveillance equipment….it was never about the grazing fees, it’s about control.”

Ranch manager Derrel Spencer warned that a “revolution” was brewing unless a solution could be found to settle the dispute.

As we reported yesterday in an article that has already garnered over 4300 comments, Bundy’s son Dave Bundy was arrested on Sunday by BLM officials after refusing to follow a dispersal order as he filmed cattle from a state highway. According to Dave’s brother Ryan Bundy, snipers had guns trained on them throughout the incident. Feds claimed Dave Bundy had violated the ludicrous “First Amendment Area,” outside of which free speech is banned.

The Bundy family posted still images of snipers who trained guns on them in the video below.

After his son’s arrest, Cliven Bundy posted a statement on his website which read, “They have my cattle and now they have one of my boys. Range War begins tomorrow.”

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department asserts that the actions against Bundy are a “federal operation,” while the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association told ABC News, “This has gotten way out of hand,” while refusing to become involved.

    Wow – talk about the lunatic fringe!

    It’s like listening to Rush, Alex, and Allen all at the same time with X-Files and the Illuminati thrown in for fun.

  2. A Lore says:

    The more I read and listen to this guy all I see is someone who has abused his right to that LEASE and I would have done the same thing and took his cattle for back payments. Then I would go about taking enough from him to finish making those back payments. Then I would shot every one of his animals that is trespassing on federal land until he makes it right and signs another lease. This guy is exactly why water rights laws were made and Federal lands set aside. He thinks he has the right to use what is not his whenever he feels like it. Screw him and all farmer/ranchers who feel the same as he does. There are plenty of good farmer/ranchers out there let them use the land and kick his kind off MY land.

    • 5WarVeteran says:

      I supported everything you said until.

      “Then I would shot every one of his animals that is trespassing on federal land until he makes it right and signs another lease.”

      You are a idiot and cannot even recognize we are going into famine. These cattle were to feed American families and now they will only be feeding wealthy politicians.

      Kill his animals? Who the FVCK are you? GOD, judge jury and executioner? THINK MAN! When is the destruction of private property ever an appropriate response?

      ESPECIALLY when the BLM itself was responsible for the deaths of thousands of those fvcking turtles they are supposed to be protecting?

    • Jan says:

      you are delusional. the rancher OWNS that land. the Feds are trying to steal it for a militairy corporation. STOP BEING SUCH A PITIFUL UNINFORMED SLAVE please.

      • LuckyLindy says:

        There seems to be some confusion over Rights and Ownership. Mr. Bundy is referring to Personal Ownership, but only Use Rights. The fact is that The LAND is owned by THE PEOPLE NOT the GOVERNMENT. Please see my Petition, read it with understanding that Mr. Bundy and His Family have RIGHTS under the Constitution and Bill of Rights, UNALIENABLE RIGHTS. What happens to them happens to us all. I have put out a Petition on the white house Petitions site. go to wh.gov/lvpFE. read and sign. LuckyLindy

        • 5WarVeteran says:

          Mr Bundy

          • LuckyLindy says:

            Sorry, I can’t view this video right now. The first video is playing through this comment and I can’t get it shut off. Do you think Mr. Bundy is talking about the land his ranch is on? But he is also saying he has grazing rights for his cattle. This is looking at it from one man’s view. I am looking at it from the view of what the Constitution says regarding the PEOPLE’s RIGHTS, UNALIENABLE RIGHTS. AS Such, we all have a stake, under God. Our Liberties and Freedom depend on these. If one loses we all lose. WE ALL OWN THESE RIGHTS. NOW ONE OF US HAS LOST HIS and because of this WE ALL LOSE.

            Its not just one man’s fight. Its all of us. That’s why we all Rally round Mr. Bundy. In the Petition, I ask Mr. Obama and his Administration to Review our Constitution and Our Rights and confirm. I site the two cases before us. I point out the condition of the Court System, Judges, and Juries and the fact that Officials are neglecting their duty. This is a Legal matter and will be solved in a Court of Law. The People today are taking a Stand and if we get the required signatures on the petition this will let the Government know we are peacefully approaching them with a very grave matter and asking for Justice under the Law.

            I hope that this matter that has arisen on the Grazing Land for the Cattle will be solved amicably between The Government who are OUR elected Reps and us.

            First, lets hear from them. LuckyLindy

            Lindy,
            Mr Bundy’s family owned that land in the past and the Federal government “decided” he did not.
            What is worse though is famine, planned famine as part of the population reduction agenda.
            I have a wheat farmer friend in Texas who made a video about chemtrails and how aluminum has damaged the root systems making the tap roots that used to grow to a depth of 40 feet now grow down 1.5 inches and the turn upwards away from the water.

            In the video he pulls plant after plant and they all showed this type of growth. Then he went into town and showed a street lamp at night. There were no bugs where there should have been swarms. Do you remember the bugs? I certainly do and they are no longer here in the quantities I once knew.

            Yes what we are witnessing is an affront to all American’s. Every day we are inundated by visual propaganda and blatant lies coming from our criminal political leadership.

            The depopulation agenda is in full swing coming through many “legal means”. Toxic vaccines, chemicals like azodiacarbonomide in our breads, some foods have up to 140 ingredients! Many of which are not allowed in foreign 3rd world countries, and do not forget Monsanto bought out 178 seed producers and is patenting their effing seeds.

            Another farmer I know three years ago had his crops burned. He was growing them for use as feed for his animals. The reason the federal government decided to burn his fields was because his not buying feed would “adversely effect the local economy”. They are forcing him to buy feed instead of allowing him to grow his own. HOW is this even remotely legal?

            Then there is the subject of GMO (Monsatan again) The bugs that were originally killed by the pesticides genetically engineered to grow within the plants are now immune and are becoming super bugs so now Monsanto is getting permission to use Agent Orange as a pesticide. Does anyone remember the deformities and still births that created in military and Vietnamese Families?

            On television we witness the drug commercials whose deadly side effects create so many problems and yet they will not show a single cigarette commercial?

            Big Pharma’s profits are 5 times the the GNP of all the countries on the planet. So we DO have Drug Dealers in high office and running the planet, now don’t we?

            Invest now in legacy seeds they are non GMO and they do not carry bio-toxins.

            If you are suffering from any intestinal problems just remember GMO corn and other GMO products cause leaky gut syndrome and irritable Bowel syndrome. The Genetic engineering in these products is also RECOMBINANT which means these genes can and will combine with the natural flora of our intestinal tracts and we do start producing pesticides within our own bodies making us sick. Juta stop eating GMO products for two weeks and see how better you will feel.

    Thursday March 9, 1933

    Most people have the mistaken impression the Constitution limits the power of government at all times. The truth of the matter is during a state of war or national emergency, the President and Congress can do virtually anything they wish if they feel that it is necessary.
    During periods of war or national emergency the Constitution is suspended in favor of a martial law.
    On March 8, 1933 all of the state legislatures voted to declare a state of national emergency and gave the President the authority to assume dictatorial powers during Great Depression, The states voted to suspend the Constitution and on March 9 ,1933.
    President Roosevelt announced the nation’s financial crisis necessitated the temporary suspension of the Constitution.
    In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Trading with the Enemies Act which gave him the authority to assume unconstitutional powers during the time of war.
    In 1933 President Roosevelt convinced Congress that during a national emergency he would need to assume powers that were not granted to him in the Constitution.
    Congress and the President are not required to follow the Constitution during the time of war or national emergency and the national emergency declared in 1933 has never been lifted. The President since the suspension of the Constitution has been a military dictator and Congress has allowed him to ignore his duties and responsibilities as defined in the Constitution.

    Ever wonder why we seem to be in a constant state of war?

      Signed into law by President John Adams in 1798, the Alien and Sedition Acts consisted of four laws passed by the Federalist-controlled Congress as America prepared for war with France. These acts increased the residency requirement for American citizenship from five to fourteen years, authorized the president to imprison or deport aliens considered “dangerous to the peace and safety of the United States” and restricted speech critical of the government. These laws were designed to silence and weaken the Democratic-Republican Party. Negative reaction to the Alien and Sedition Acts helped contribute to the Democratic-Republican victory in the 1800 elections. Congress repealed the Naturalization Act in 1802, while the other acts were allowed to expire.

      FDR misused the power and it will not happen again after the Japanese lost their property and lands as did some German and Other CITIZENS that were put in what for a better description was a CONCENTRATION CAMP. The Japanese won money damages from the Federal government in the courts after many years.

  8. A Lore says:

    I usually back farmers/ranchers and I do this family but lets put this in perspective. It is NOT their land it is all of ours. I would like to see that land used by ranchers but again they all need to realize it is NOT their land. You do NOT have any right to that land you get to use it at the whim of the government and that is were the problems start.

    • Bend over and take it some more my friend..!!!

    • Patriot says:

      piece of shit. its there. go kill yourself you fucking liberal

    • profitup10 says:

      A Lore,
      Have you ever read the actual Constitution? – Let me share some facts – the Federal Government is LIMITED by Article I section 8 enumerated powers. There is no authority for them to own land INSIDE STATE BOUNDARIES with the few exceptions, military forts, post roads, ports, not open timber, sagebrush, pastures, lakes, and mountains. No Federal game refuges, no national parks or monuments.

      The subject land is rightfully the property of the States. Nevada is around 85% Federal government owned. That is a usurped ownership as it violates the limits of the Constitution. Any false claim is null void as if it never existed at all.

      • Dan says:

        What are you talking about? I live in Montana and a good chunk of land here is federally owned whether it be indian reservation, us forest service, military. You can debate whether that is right but the fact remains that only one thing can truly resolve land disputes. A land deed. If the family has title to the land prove it! Easy enough. Many times families use land for generations, it has happened here and they just assume it is there’s when in fact it is state owned. Many disputes arise between hunters and big land owners here because of that. Public land is sold in blocks without surveys being done without natural boundary markers so it is easy over time to forget where the actual boundary is.

    • Don says:

      The land is theirs, bought and paid for and maintained by the peoples taxes the government steals every April 15. Where do you think the feds get the money to buy, when they aren’t stealing it, from peoples taxes. The land is not federal land or blm land, it is public land.

    • karen Doshier says:

      Actually, they are not saying it is their land but the grazing rights are theirs as they were purchased in the time of Mr Gundy’s grandfather and reaffirmed through paid fees as well as improvements to the ranges made by ranchers with their own funds. Look up preemptive rights. Mr Bundy has paid fees for many years to BLM to assist ranchers (as all the ranchers did) to help with overgrazing and those fees are what paid wages for BLM and in effect where BLM gets funds to drive the ranchers into o licion and abuse them which is why Mr Bundy began refusing to pays those fees as he was protesting the abuse of the BLM. Their endangered species card is a hoax as the BLM has done more harm to desert tortoise population than any cattle grazing could ever do.

      • LuckyLindy says:

        I agree with Mr. Bundy’s statement re “Grazing RIGHTS” but its much more than that! Its what Mr. Bundy is saying here” Freedom and Liberty, and that’s not just one man’s fight. Its ALL OF US.

        AND, REMEMBER, ALL LAND IN THE USA BELONGS TO ALL OF US, COLLECTIVELY. Karen, the land is not Mr. Bundy’s ALONE, but he is One of the People, one of us, the PUBLIC, and as such he is one of the owners, in my judgment. WE ARE THE OWNERS, AS A WHOLE. THE GOVERNMENT AND ITS AGENCIES ARE OUR EMPLOYEES ONLY. Mr. Bundy is saying its about Control; they want to take control (and OWNERSHIP) from the People so they can do unlawful (OUR RIGHTS under the LAW) to us.

        If you think in the box that this case is only about the Bundy’s, you need to adjust your thinking and come out of the box and see the BIGGER PICTURE and how what happens to the Bundy’s happens to ALL OF US!!! PLEASE STAND UP FOR THE BUNDY’S. It will be a Stand for All of US. SIGN MY PETITION. ITS A START. LuckyLindy

  17. Brian says:

    I really didn’t picture the Feds coming to my home state to do this sort of thing yet. They don’t realize how much we cling to our rights, and these people have been dealing with the BLM already so they are tired of it. This is not going to be good.

  18. 5WarVeteran says:

    Stay on topic! Petty rivalry and personal opinion about another person’s post is meaningless and THAT is why Americans cannot get together on a single effing subject.

    What is happening? Or is it right or wrong?

    It is WRONG. We have excessive criminal government and a complicit congress who has insinuated it in every facet of American life.

    We have militarized “Ranger Smiths” terrorizing tourists in Federal Parks!

    The US Government does not OWN ANY LAND, WE THE PEOPLE DO.

    Either align with Americans or align with criminal government. YOUR choice.

    Now which of us has the balls to stand up and support the American people when the time comes?

    And which of us will hide and ride it out until they come for you?

    This is just one more illustration of government appointees trying to act like little Hitlers with not one elected official being accountable for their actions. There must be accountability! We the People deserve to have our rights protected by the people whom we have elected to represent our interests, not by some politically appointed group operating under their own political cloak of irresponsibility. The politicians who established these politically appointed organizations must be held accountable for the actions that these out of control organizations, of which there are many, the EPA, FDA, IRS, just to name a few. Perhaps jailing a few politicians might help curb the insanity.

    Marksmen maybe, If they were true snipers, no one would have known they were there. What the Government is doing is wrong, no doubt about it. Fanning the fire by using inaccurate terminology is just as wrong. By definition, if you saw them ,they were not true snipers! From a place you do not see,comes a sound you will not hear!
