Tea Partyers, Libertarians Join 'New Ruby Ridge' Ranching Battle

Tea party groups and Libertarians have joined in the widening battle over grazing rights between Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and federal authorities.

Elected officials in states ranging from Arizona to Washington were rushing to Nevada on Thursday night after watching a startling video of an angry clash between protesters, including private militias, and U.S. Bureau of Land Management rangers, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The 10-minute video showed Bundy's son Ammon being tasered and Cliven's sister Margaret Bundy-Houston, a cancer survivor, being tackled to the ground by a ranger.

"Watching that video last night created a visceral reaction in me," said Arizona Rep. Kelly Townsend, a tea party Republican who drove from Phoenix to take part in a protest rally in Bunkerville near Bundy's 160-acre ranch. "It sounds dramatic, but it reminded me of Tiananmen Square. I don't recognize my country at this point."

“The most complete data is from the Beaver Dam Mountains. Woodbury and Hardy reported a tortoise population density of 150 per square mile in 1948. BLM reduced cattle grazing a few years later and eliminated cattle in 1970. Coombs reported a tortoise density of 39 per square mile in 1974. In these 26 years cattle use was reduced 100 percent and tortoise numbers were reduced 74 percent.

“These tortoises were doing so poorly a veterinarian, Dr. Jarchow, was consulted. He reported all six specimens were suffering from osteoporosis caused by a protein deficiency in their diet. Dr. Jarchow examined five specimens from the same mountains that shared their range with cattle. He reported these specimens were all healthy and well nourished.

“The historical record proves conclusively that tortoise thrive when cattle are on the range with them and without cattle grazing they are always malnourished and unhealthy and their numbers plummet.

Not only ammo but machine guns, tasers, and attack dogs. The only conclusion is that the federal government plans on waging war against the citizens of this country.

When threats are made that could jeopardize the safety of the American people, the contractors and our personnel; we have the responsibility to provide law enforcement to account for their safety,” National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover said to reporters Sunday’ foxnews

“Federal officials said that BLM enforcement agents were dispatched in response to statements Bundy made which they perceived as threats.

“When justified threats are made that could jeopardize the safety of the Obummer commies, the crony contractors and our war-mongering provocative military aggressor assault troops; we have the responsibility to provide unlawul enforcement to account for their brutality,” Nazional Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover said to reporters Sunday.”

there fixed it

Gee, I didn't know there were 200 Rangers in all of the west.

And they're all deployed outside Las Vegas?

Well, you can bet that's where they'll congregate after they complete their dirty work.

Harry Reid and his son Rory are paid chumps for the PRC energy company. BLM at Reid’s behest has moved “turtle areas” to benefit his big political contributors.... the turtle is bs, a non issue. Its the china company that wants to build a solar power array on the land... and they have own Harry and his son Rory.... cheap whores. This administration is corrupt from top to bottom and Reid and his family are dirty...

The Governor of Nevada could end this in 5 minutes by ordering in the State Police, with the help of the local Sheriff.

But, he would also have to worry about what the IRS and the IRS have on them. Welcome to the Fascist States of America, kids. It is what the Sheeple voted for, TWICE, after all.

Why is the Bureau of Land Management heavily armed with machine guns and attack dogs. Is that necessary to manage land?

It appears the government is trying to incite the ranchers to violence for political purposes.

We have been saying that all along. It was only the Government plants, moles, and judas goats that said otherwise.

Just as the People's Liberation Army is not actually a army to liberate, the Bureau of Land Management is not a land management outfit. Its purpose is to kill those who do not bow to Governmental tyranny.
