BLM Rangers Brought in From Out of State for Nevada Ranch ‘Emergency’
http://freebeacon.com ^ | April 10, 2014 | Elizabeth Harrington

Posted on 04/11/2014 11:23:22 AM PDT by george76

They’re almost like a hired gun’. Armed Rangers were brought in from out of state by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to assist in security surrounding the Bundy Ranch, according to the family.

A heated confrontation on Wednesday resulted in Cliven Bundy’s son Ammon being tasered by BLM officials and a 57-year-old protester being shoved to the ground.

Stetsy Bundy Cox, Cliven’s daughter, told the Washington Free Beacon that some of the rangers had Oregon and California license plates.

“You know, some of these guys don’t even know why they’re here,” she said. “A few people have talked to them and they got called in here on an emergency feed and they didn’t know what it was for, it just said they had to be here.”

...

Cox said she spoke with an out-of-state Ranger who was ashamed of his job.

“I actually went and talked to one, he was in the back, nobody was even talking to him. He didn’t say much,” she said. “He had a huge big gun on him, but he didn’t really even touch his gun.”

“I asked him, ‘What are you doing? Do you know what you’re doing? You’re stealing an old man’s cattle, his livelihood. He’s a poor man that doesn’t have anything,’”

...

As of Wednesday, 352 cattle have been removed from the public land ranched by the Bundy family for more than a century. An estimated 200 armed officials have surrounded the ranch

"Armed Rangers were brought in from out of state by the Bureau of Land Management"

A thread by JimRob mentioned the militia members who are starting to fill the area.
This may not end pretty.

(And may be a harbinger of things to come across the nation - maybe a few doors get kicked down in New York state on Cuomo's orders, and the LEOs get their cars/trucks destroyed on the way out. Rinse and repeat).

Someone suggested a similarity to Tiananmen square.. personally there are too many happenings here that match this. But there’s one thing that kind of makes them all similar to Tiananmen Square (Internet source): “. . . they brought in troops from far away who didn’t have connections to Beijing, . . . would brook no obstacle.”

I missed the start of this whole debacle
is this because Mr. Bundy did not pay grazing fees?

I know his family has used those lands forever but if he owes fees to graze why doesn’t he just pay them?

Even so the 0dumbo gov’t shouldn’t use gestapo tactics

The federal government in 1998 declared the property off-limits to all cattle so that it could be turned into a habitat for the endangered desert tortoise.

“Years ago, I used to have 52 neighboring ranchers,” Bundy said. “I’m the last man standing. How come? Because BLM regulated these people off the land and out of business.”

The original cause does matter.
this is from the blaze link another poster posted
“Bundy does not own the land, which is near his 150-acre ranch, and has not paid grazing fees since 1993, claiming that he doesn’t recognize the federal government’s claim to the property.

The veteran rancher said he is entitled to use the land for grazing because his family has done exactly that for decades, even before the Bureau of Land Management was for

so they guy hasn’t paid grazing fees for 21 years? Other ranchers in other areas pay their grazing fees

BUT NO the gov’t should not be doing what they are doing. It is typical 0dumbo bullying. think if this was a black guy the feds would be doing this? NO

let’s be clear on how this started. Mr Bundy is not completely innocent

The Center for Biological Diversity allegedly threatened BLM with a lawsuit in federal court if they didn’t force Bundy’s cattle off the public land.

Just WTF are they trying to secure?

They are spending tens of millions of dollars to confiscate a few hundred cows that will be sold for well under a million dollars to pay off grazing fees.

At least, that's the federal government's story.

Face it. This is a show of force by the Federal government. To let the proles know who holds the power and who they should fear.

I'm not sure that I am sympathetic to the cause of the rancher. I don't believe that I've heard the truth from either side. But the total overkill by the BLM has me watching the bigger issue of who answers to who.

There is no way that this will end well.

Maybe patriots and militiamen should be surrounding the BLM HQ too. Maybe their homes...

That is, after all, what these Gestapo vermin do to us. Come after us in our homes and shoot up families. Look at what they did at Ruby Ridge.

They wanna give it that way, perhaps they should get it that way.

I hope the militias and patriots bring the fight right to the BLM.

Just as the BLM has decided that it is fine to go after men and their families in their homes, the BLM should too be subjected to having their homes’ doors kicked in sometime after midnight.

Fight fire with fire, no?

Stetsy Bundy Cox, Cliven’s daughter, told the Washington Free Beacon that some of the rangers had Oregon and California license plates.

Not if they were driving federal vehicles, they didn't. If they were rentals, then possible, but all federal vehicles have federal plates on them for official use.

I've seen many an unmarked federal vehicle around the Albuquerque area still sporting federal tags.

Im a Beck fan but He/THe Blaze is NOT listening.

THe family claims that grandpa bought the land in the 1800’s and have been grazing cattle there for over 100 years.
He wen’t along with the “dues/fees” for a while to get along but discovered that the BLM was not maintaining the land as proposed as the use of collective fees, but rather using the funds to run off ranchers.

He said never mind to the BLM and even tried to pay the fee to the County, but the County said no, they didn’t know how to deal with such an offer.

His family over time created the majority of the watering areas and fence lines over the years and they never relinquished legal claim to the land. They just foolishly trusted the government was trying to help.

Further, let me get this right, this tortoise has been sharing the land with cattle for over 100 years, but now suddenly the cows are a problem…yea right.

It's definitely not about tortoises. The BLM is killing hundreds of them.

Desert tortoise faces threat from its own refuge August 25, 2013

Back at the conservation center, a large refrigerator labeled "carcass freezer" hummed in the desert sun as scientists examined the facility's 1,400 inhabitants to find those hearty enough to release into the wild. Officials expect to euthanize more than half the animals in the coming months in preparation for closure at the end of 2014.

More glaring proof that the FedMob is incapable of managing lands or wildlife.

As of Wednesday, 352 cattle have been removed from the public land

That's an understatement at best.

This is calving season and there is no accounting for the calves that have been born and separated from their mothers and those who are yet to be born from the overstressed and driven mothers who will likely die.......

This is a travesty of so called justice!

I can't believe the number of so called conservative FReepers who are supporting the government's attack on Mr. Bundy........

The Governor should have announced that he has given orders to the State Police and Sheriff’s departments to arrest any armed Federal agent - better yet, ANY Federal agent until this is all sorted out.
