Video: Feds Taser Nevada Rancherís Son During Tense Clash
The Blaze ^ | April 10, 2014 | Becket Adams

Posted on 04/10/2014 6:01:36 PM PDT by Former Proud Canadian

The standoff between a Nevada rancher and the U.S. government escalated Wednesday when protesters confronted federal agents tasked with the chore of rounding up approximately 900 “trespass cattle.”

The confrontation, captured on video, resulted in one protester, the rancher’s son, being hit with a stun gun while another, the rancher’s daughter, was pushed to the ground. One woman said federal officials struck her with their vehicle.

He got tased multiple times. He yanked them out. Then they tried to sick the dogs on him and he was kicking them.

He’s not the kind of guy you wanna eff with.

On the five, they said this rancher hasn’t paid his grazing fees in over 20 yrs? So in essence he’s breaking the law?

I believe I have read that they stopped allowing him to pay those fees since 1993. They were trying to run his ranch out of business, if so.

One day there will be a spark and rebellion will break out against the state. This is probably not it because of the isolated location and the ambiguity over the legal right to the acreage, but police state tactics are going to cause general rebellion at some point.

Looks like it has begun. Hope more Americans have the gonads these people do. But I’m not holding my breath.

This isn’t about legal equities. It’s about telling the Fed’s to leave us alone.

http://www.rfdtv.com/story/25206377/oklahoma-texas-border-dispute-has-ranchers-worried
April 10, 2014

BYERS, Texas (RFD-TV) Most people think the border between Texas and Oklahoma is the Red River. Unfortunately, it’s a little more complicated than that, especially along the part of the river where Tommy Henderson and his family ranch.
Henderson lost a lawsuit 30 years ago that moved part of the northern Texas border over a mile to the south.

The Bureau of Land Management [BLM] took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.

Now, they want to use his case as precedent to seize land along a 116-mile stretch of the river.

“They’re wanting to take the boundaries that the courts placed here and extend those east and west to the forks of the river north of Vernon and east to the 98th Meridian which is about 20 miles east of us,” Henderson explained.

BLM, which oversees public land in the United States, claims this land never belonged to Texas.

The Texas landowners who have lived and cared for that land for hundreds of years beg to differ.

BLM plans on taking the land anyway. Property owners will be forced to spend money on lawsuits to keep what is theirs.

For many, that property has been in their family for generations.”

BLM out of control

It was my understanding the ranch belonged to the rancher’s family since the 19th century.

As I understand it his family had been grazing cattle on that land for 100+ years. In 1993 the feds decided some tortise or some such was endangered. So as "incentive" to get ranchers to stop grazing there they started charging a fee. This rancher told them to bugger off.

No. He doesn’t own it in the sense of having a deed or anything - he says his family’s herds have been grazing on it.

I think his family has been paying grazing fees for 50 years and he stopped.

We’re not getting the entire story - the reporting has been fairly atrocious.

You got that right. Dogs, tasers, tosses them off. I've met a couple of guys like that through the years. You don't screw around with them, but there are no better friends to have at your back in a fight.

These Jack Booted Thugs need to have their clocks cleaned.

Yeah. Too bad there wasn't someone up on that ridge in the background... Just sayin' these feds aren't too smart.

From my understanding, there was an agreement between the rancher and BLM. For a fee, BLM was to maintain the fences and some other stuffs on the rancher’s property. BLM kept their part of the agreement till they didn’t. Thus the rancher stopped paying the fee. BLM broke their part of the agreement first.

If ever there is a problem between the government and a landowner, always side with the landowner. ALWAYS.

I pretty much agree with you, but this could be the spark despite its remoteness and lack of cover. If the fedcoats mass here to ‘neutralize’ this man, his family and his friends, it means they stripped resources from other places.

As Ulysses S. Grant once said “Our cat has the longer tail”.

I wonder if rubber vests or suits would work against tasers?
What to bring to the protest.
Gas mask, helmet, rubber vest, Kevlar vest, vests with spikes?

It was federal property. Yes, the feds chose some turtle over ranchers. And now everything’s out of control.

The fees were 1.35 per head per month or something like that.

Obviously, it’s federal land, and there has to be a system for ensuring that the proper amount of cattle are grazed, etc. This rancher has a point that the feds are being too draconian. 20 years ago he lost — I think that this will not end well and I pray no one gets hurt. I do prefer the courts and the press for resolving these issues.

There’s more to the story. Not all cattle ranchers are on his side.

No. There are many, many other issues, but Cliven Bundy is the one who quit paying the grazing fees in 1993 after the BLM limited the number of cattle he could run on the old Bunkerton allotment.

The BLM may have quit billing Bundy for grazing fees in 1998, when it declared the old Bunkerton allotment a no-graze area, but I’ve seen nothing definitive regarding that. However, the damages sought by the BLM suggest it is seeking rent since 1993.

Cliven Bundy's family has owned a 150-acre ranch near Bunkerton since 1878.

At issue is where his family has owned or gained ownership of grazing rights to hundreds of thousands of additional acres of land.

Among other theories asserted by Mr. Bundy in his legal pleadings:

I think his family has been paying grazing fees for 50 years and he stopped.

59 years.

In 1934, the federal Taylor Grazing Act was enacted, providing for regulation of regulation of grazing on public lands, including the requirement of a grazing contract and payment of grazing fees.

The constitutionality of that Act can be legitimately questioned.

However, when the Act became law, the Bundy family signed a grazing contract and began paying grazing fees.

Cliven Bundy stopped paying grazing fees in 1993, after the BLM limited the number of cattle he could graze on the old Bunkerton allotment because of the presence of desert tortoises, a species the Fish & Wildlife Service declared an Endangered Species.

So as "incentive" to get ranchers to stop grazing there they started charging a fee. This rancher told them to bugger off.

It wasn't an incentive to get ranchers to stop grazing there. The government started charging a fee there in 1934, and the Bundy family paid it until 1993. The grazing contracts have a ten-year term. In 1993, the BLM changed the contract terms to severely limit the number of cattle Cliven Bundy could graze on the Bunkerton allotment because of the presence of . . . desert tortoises.

That's when Clive Bunkerton ceased paying a grazing fee.

After years of federal judges listening to arguments made about federal laws and regulations by federal lawyers representing federal agencies, the federal judge gave a federal agency permission to remove Cliven Bundy's cattle if he didn't do so in 45 days.
