Skip to comments.Last Man Standing Rancher: armed feds are surrounding my farm

A two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owners cattle, according to the ranchers family.
Cliven Bundy, the last rancher in Clark County, Nev., has been fighting a one-man range war since 1993, when he decided to take a stand against the agency, refusing to pay fees for the right to graze on a ranch run by his family for centuries.
After years of court battles, the BLM secured a federal court order to have Bundys trespass cattle forcibly removed with heavy artillery, the family said.

Another Waco or Ruby Ridge?
One put his knee on his head, the other put his boot on his head and pushed him into the gravel, she said. Hes got quite a bruised head. Just bruised him up pretty good.
Let's just be glad the officers got home safely. /s
Send a message over to Lincoln County — tell Billy the Kid he’s needed.
John Stossel had the Nevada Rancher on his last show.
not enough people ... they need more slaughter before they call in the press.
I wonder how much of the national debt could be paid off if the federal government sold off maybe 90% of the vast land holdings it has.
I am not talking about military bases etc. just those huge parts of many states.
They seem to be amping up for it.
Jack booted thugs.
Apparently the Democrats learned nothing from Waco and Ruby Ridge.
plumbers, rodeo clowns, ranchers, neurosurgeons, 91-year-old arrowhead collectors .
When will your turn be ?
I love how the government says it will cost them $3 mil to impound 800 head. Clearly, Mr. Bundy did not spend this on his yearly gathers. I do a little cowboy work and would do a heck of a lot morre if it all paid like that. Just goes to show how private biz can do things infinately more efficiently than the gov. No way will they recoup that on the sale of the cattle.
By the way, if you do the math on what Bundy says he owes and what the gov says he owes Budy’s math works, the gov’s numbers suggest he was grazing 3500 head a year, unless they are claiming fines, but such fines would be excessive.

Comrade B. Hussein Obama may be the first openly Communist to rule America, but this quote is evidence that Communism has been alive and well in America since at least 1993.
Clear out some land so the bond debt to the chinese can be paid off if they get antsy. The chinese will want national parks and open grazing for the cattle on the farms they are buying with out money.
Not anymore though, wonder why?
