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.

Return Bundy’s property.
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.
Blocking the interstate? That’s not too bright.
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.
But they'll deduct the million dollars they claim Bundy owes.
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.
Want it quieted down...elections soon.....
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.
Reid’s buddy is the head of BLM.
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. !
Alex jones was screaming about scmbagreid and the chinese.
apparently he sold that land and that’s why the ranchers had to go.
Those cattle are dead.
I sure hope so! Reid deserves to go up in flames or down in flames, either one will do.
“I thought the state owned the land and Bundys grazing rights were an agreement with them.”
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.
“The BLM backed down not long after Drudge Report started connecting the dots to Reid and the Chinese Solar panel scam.”
I’m guessing Dingy Harry doesn’t understand the internet too well either.
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.
^^Reids buddy is the head of BLM.^^
Color me surprised. -—NOT!
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.
What is this photo from? It does not look like the same terrain around the gathering of Patriots and supporters that has been shown on FNC.
They didnt count on hundreds of supporters showing up with cameras and were just as well armed as the Feds were.
I’m sure the “Legged Bundy family” was there as well. 8^)
Lot’s of legit pics here:
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)
From what I Understood, the BLM were very afraid of them today.
Nope. They are in the designated "Second Amendment" area.
Agreed. I don’t think blocking the freeway is a good move, and folks need to clear it ASAP.
And his cattle are being returned to him.
Keep your BS to yourself.
How’s it looking for Joe this go-round? If he wins, he’ll owe the RINOs in charge *zero* after what the bastids pulled last time.
**From what I Understood, the BLM were very afraid of them today.**
I hope so. It is past time to put a stop to government over reach.
That number of dead represents over a quarter million dollars. Not inconsequential.
That sounds like they killed off 1/5 to 1/4 of the herd. That isn’t BS, that’s a significant loss.
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
