Nevada Militia To Feds: ‘Control Our Borders, Not Our Ranchers’
CBS LAS VEGAS ^ | April 11, 2014

Posted on 04/13/2014 6:20:22 AM PDT by george76

The rural Nevada showdown between federal government officials and militia members protecting rancher Cliven Bundy has evolved into a battle of government “tyranny,” with many newly arriving militiamen rolling in to draw a line in the dirt about 70 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

...

“This is a better education than being in school! I’m glad I brought you. I’m a good mom,” Ilona Ence, a 49-year-old mother from St. George and Bundy relative who brought her four teenage children to the ranch, told the Las Vegas Sun. “They’re learning about the Constitution.”

Ence’s teenage sons posted up a sign on the land voicing their opinion of what the federal government officials should be doing: “CONTROL OUR BORDERS! NOT OUR RANCHERS!”

That article originally went up yesterday with the headline "Anti-Government Groups Rally for Bundy". If you scroll through the comments, you'll find one by Joe Citizen that prompted the change.

Some FED that was there is going to tell one of his relatives that was a protester there the truth why they backed off and the truth will be out. Not all FEDS are bootlicking liberal Democrat supporting butt wipes.

The Feds will return and either arrest or kill Clive Bundy and his family, once the crowds have gone.

They might even wait until after the elections.

Well, there may be one or two. But, if they're honorable, what the hell are they doing there?

They don’t get it that people who are pro-constitution are actually FOR government—constitutional government. They simply oppose a government that makes up the rules as it goes, as though we can’t read and understand the US Constitution for ourselves.

The statist, anti-constitutional left stacks the courts with co-conspirators in black robes, then thinks we don’t know what’s going on. Judges make it up as they go, like recent rulings that government can seize your property for public purposes (meaning anything they want) versus public use, that we can be searched without probable cause or a warrant, and that homosexual “marriage” is a civil right per the 14th Amendment!

So we don’t oppose government. We WANT government that governs per our (We the People’s) original agreement—the US Constitution. Truth be told we’re have been willing to tolerate some statism, but the violations are getting more and more egregious these days.

Obamacare, for example, didn’t just give free (subsidized) care to the needy. If that was all it did, we might complain of the cost, but we’d probably not see it as the crisis it is. No. The problem with Obamacare is that the 90% of us who did NOT want to have our health care messed with are having our liberty taken for the other 10%.

100% right on!

Absolutely.

The GOP is sold out on importing everything from China, and sold out on business in general in fact. Not to get stuck on the GOP, because democrats are even worse.

China now exports more than America does. Many of those Chinese-made products are imported right back to America.

ZERO American jobs, are made in China. Americans further cannot buy land there, or buy majority ownership in Chinese companies.

GOP wake up, and bring back American businesses.

Bring back American businesses, and staff those businesses with American workers.

Stop undercutting American businesses.

For crying out loud. Stand up for America.

Yes, honorable people don’t take dishonorable jobs. These “stool samples” evidently like this kind of work abusing their fellow citizens. But then, the same applies to a large percentage of our civilian law enforcement today. SWAT “Teams” need to be abolished by law. They are nothing short of paid assassins.

UPDATE: Why the BLM is Standing Down in Cliven Bundy Dispute

Why? There’s a good possibility that the directive to stand down came from the White House. The Democrats are in a political tail spin. Political aspirations look bad for November. They don’t need daily reports on how the Feds are armed to the teeth persecuting a lone rancher and his cattle. Waco and Ruby Ridge come to mind. The Democrats are trying to clear the deck of potential bad news stories. Getting rid of Kathleen Sebelius is part of the process.

Reports that Harry Reid and his family have a vested interest in this government land doesn’t help the government’s case against Cliven Bundy, especially with the bad publicity that he’s gotten lately over payouts to his family.

Especially the weekend before our annual Tax Day reaming (in an election year, no less). People are PO’d at the general state of things and oversized, arrogant bureaucracies and their minions out harassing ranchers is really bad optics that are tailor made for social networking sites.

I’m sure there were DC officials screaming into their phones at the local administrators. “WTF are you doing out there?”

The whole operation was poorly planned from the get go and rapidly turned into an expensive, embarrassing fiasco.

We can't trust ANY of the constitutional conservatives that have been sent to DC by the voters. Not one of them showed up on TV fake-news standing up for rancher's rights and against gov over-reach. Not one of them stood by the protestors against the BLM. Not one of them said put the BLM on our border with Mexico, where they can protect the land and taser, assault and threaten invaders.

They're not really with us, not one of them. And that includes our beloved Ted Cruz.

As Jeb Bush would say, Cattle ranching is Bundy’s livelihood. It’s how he feeds his family. His trespassing cattle is not a crime; he’s doing it out of love for his family.
