UPDATE: Armed Bundy family leaders meet with BLM officers

Posted: Apr 12, 2014 3:06 PM EDT Updated: Apr 12, 2014 4:05 PM EDT

By Caroline Bleakley, Senior Online Editor -

LAS VEGAS --  Armed Bundy family leaders are meeting with BLM officers to discuss what will become of the cattle that the feds removed from BLM land, over the past week.

Tensions are running high and I-15 is closed in both directions, about seven miles south of Mesquite, because protesters have blocked the freeway, according to Nevada Highway Patrol.

The protesters have gathered in support of rancher Cliven Bundy, who has been locked in a legal battle over grazing rights with the federal government.

Nearly two dozen police officers and a SWAT unit are on scene.

NHP is advising people to not even try to go to Mesquite from Las Vegas. Troopers have tried to get cars through the area but they are not having much luck.

There have been no overt threats of violence from the protesters.

The BLM law enforcement officers are in Mesquite as they wait to leave the area. Police are there to help them do that safely.

It was announced Saturday morning that Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, Bundy and the BLM were able to reach an agreement over the cattle the BLM has already removed from the federal property. 

The BLM has offered to pay Bundy for the cattle already confiscated, sources say. The protesters say the cattle should be returned to Bundy.

This is a developing story.

Looks like it’s moving now, the traffic at least.

I suspect the BLM thugs are moving too in the sense that moving means crapping one’s panties.

And just as a reminder, the BLM has many convienient offices all around the country, but especially in the western states. Or they can be contacted online.

Harry Reid to the rescue?

Reid is totally into being a supreme being, and this Nevada (his state) episode will, hopefully, destroy him.

Agreed, they need to stay out of the road. The Nevada Highway Patrol has a duty to keep the road clear for traffic and emergency vehicles.

The BLM backed down not long after Drudge Report started connecting the dots to Reid and the Chinese Solar panel scam.

Funny how those things work. All of a sudden, the Feds can’t wait to leave town.

“The BLM has offered to pay Bundy for the cattle already confiscated, sources say.”

But they'll deduct the million dollars they claim Bundy owes.

This story has affected Americans viscerally. At this point in time, for many We The People, it's as provocative as a man leaving the lid up.

I don’t see why he owes the Feds a dime. I thought the state owned the land and Bundy’s grazing rights were an agreement with them.

I must have missed something. I havn’t followed every story about this.

That’s what the feds are claiming he owes for “grazing fees”. Like the feds went out there planted prickly pears and cactus.

The propaganda machine begins its slow grind

After they do their dirty smear-jobs, not long before Bundy will be Oklahoma Timothy McVeigh and that ranch will be Waco Branch Davidiana.

It was also mention on Hannity last night. No details ——Just asked Hannity to come to Nevada and investigate Reid’s involvment. Hannity assured him he’d be there! This could get very interesting for the Reid family. !

Like the king, as always the feds provide no product or service yet stand there with their hand out for the deer you shot because it’s the king’s deer.

BLM shows up with machine guns, attack dogs, and tasers and claims they want a peaceful resolution. They didn’t count on hundreds of supporters showing up with cameras.

I’m really glad the header from the LV news station said that the Bundy Family had “arms”. (my “good grief” sarcasm bite intended toward the MSM)

It’s probably more a case of the Feds don’t want Bundy to have cause to file damages claims against them for injured / mistreated calves and cattle.

They didn’t count on hundreds of supporters showing up with cameras and were just as well armed as the Feds were.

lol I know this is serious, but the first image I get in my head (from watching YEARS of MARRIED WITH CHILDREN) is AL Bundy with “arms”. Wonder if the same media would have said that the New B Panther Party guarding the voting areas with “batons”, was “Armed”? (rhetorical, i know)

Agreed. I don’t think blocking the freeway is a good move, and folks need to clear it ASAP.

Less than 200 are dead, mostly from stress, except for 2 'non-compliant bulls' which were put down, from what I've read from other reports.

And his cattle are being returned to him.

Keep your BS to yourself.

The cows are probably thinking, what the heck?

First I heard that the BLM had rounded up cows from Arizona? I know the border is very close there at Mesquite. Somebody from the BLM/Reid/Obama Administration has got to answer for this and going into AZ to round up cows.

If BLM took cattle across state lines they’re in trouble because all the cattle are under 18. That’s a no no, transporting juveniles across state lines.

He has learned a lot, and is much more savvy this time. He got schwantzed royally by the Murky clan and their paid operatives (fake GOP) who pretended to be part of Joe’s staff in the last election, but who betrayed and sabotaged him at every step. He seems to have a lot of support this time. I am rooting for him, obviously.

Might just be a lawyer around that will take that on.

Global Incident Map has a warning on their map (number of maps including Amber Alert, disease, quakes, terrorism, etc)
at Mesquite calling this event, “Suspicious Activity”. hmmm
