Two locations are available for members of the public to express their First Amendment rights: I15 and Exit 112 for Riverside and State Route 170 and White Rock Road. Only one area will be available at a time; Incident Command staff will determine daily which location is most suitable, based on impound operation activities and safety considerations, and will post the location on BLM and National Park Service (NPS) websites.
Feral cattle? Really?
I am surprised they didn’t also list “terrorist ranchers”.
The US Gov’t is really out of control
Here’s Gayle’s husband’s cv. He’s a Ph.D. botanist. (His name is Smith. Why his cv is on Harrison’s ASU page, I don’t know.)
Here is his primary research interest:
“Global change esp. elevated CO2 and altered precipitation regimes”
Guess who he voted for.
This reminds me of the part in “The Hitch-hikers Guide to the Universe” where the notification for the destruction of the Earth was put up on another planet.

For all you Rhode Island Freepers that is almost the area of your entire state.
All of this blocked off just to round up one small business rancher's cattle.
Complete with "Free Speech Zones" located Who knows where for those who think this might be overreach.
Obviously this was going to cost much more than the money that Mr. Bundy allegedly owed to the Federal Government. Probably a 10 Million dollar venture to capture a million dollars (retail) worth of one man's cattle.
Nice find. Thanks for posting it. I think the land is open now. No thanks to our fearless Republican leadership. What happened the other day is a great case study in how to regain our liberty. We just need to take it.
We may want to consider an amendment prohibiting the ownership and regulation of land or water by the federal government. The only exception would be military bases and land needed for occupied federal buildings.
These people are frightening. It is as if they live in another country.
The BLM calls these “public lands”, but the public (citizens) are prohibited from accessing them.
They murdered some kid on a bike about 3 weeks ago because he rode down into the closed area.
How much did it cost the taxpayers to get this very short 6 week closure notice put together? How much did it cost the taxpayers to send all those officials out to the Bundy ranch? All that to stamp out one guy and then it didn’t work. Hey, it’s all monopoly money, right?
This is the best explanation I have read on the reason why a person would not want to enter into a contract with the BLM and thus would not pay any grazing fees to them. Offer to pay to the county but not deal with the BLM. I did not write this so if you repost or copy and paste please credit the author.

There have been a lot of people criticizing Clive Bundy because he did not pay his grazing fees for 20 years. The public is also probably wondering why so many other cowboys are supporting Mr. Bundy even though they paid their fees and Clive did not. What you people probably do not realize is that on every rancher's grazing permit it says the following: "You are authorized to make grazing use of the lands, under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management and covered by this grazing permit, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this grazing permit and payment of grazing fees when due."
The "mandatory" terms and conditions go on to list the allotment, the number and kind of livestock to be grazed, when the permit begins and ends, the number of active or suspended AUMs (animal units per month), etc. The terms and conditions also list specific requirements such as where salt or mineral supplements can be located, maximum allowable use of forage levels (40% of annual growth), etc., and include a lot more stringent policies that must be adhered to.
Every rancher must sign this "contract" agreeing to abide by the TERMS AND CONDITIONS before he or she can make payment. In the early 90s, the BLM went on a frenzy and drastically cut almost every rancher's permit because of this desert tortoise issue, even though all of us ranchers knew that cow and desert tortoise had co-existed for a hundred+ years.
As an example, a family friend had his permit cut by 90%. For those of you who are non ranchers, that would be equated to getting your paycheck cut 90%. In 1976 there were approximately 52 ranching permittees in this area of Nevada. Presently, there are 3. Most of these people lost their livelihoods because of the actions of the BLM. Clive Bundy was one of these people who received extremely unfair and unreasonable TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Keep in mind that Mr. Bundy was required to sign this contract before he was allowed to pay. Had Clive signed on the dotted line, he would have, in essence, signed his very livelihood away. And so Mr. Bundy took a stand, not only for himself, but for all of us.
He refused to be destroyed by a tyrannical federal entity and to have his American liberties and freedoms taken away. Also keep in mind that all ranchers financially paid dearly for the forage rights those permits allow - - not rights to the land, but rights to use the forage that grows on that land. Many of these AUMS are water based, meaning that the rancher also has a vested right (state owned, not federal) to the waters that adjoin the lands and allow the livestock to drink.
These water rights were also purchased at a great price. If a rancher cannot show beneficial use of the water (he must have the appropriate number of livestock that drinks and uses that water), then he loses that water right. Usually water rights and forage rights go hand in hand. Contrary to what the BLM is telling you, they NEVER compensate a rancher for the AUMs they take away.
Most times, they tell ranchers that their AUMS are "suspended," but not removed. Unfortunately, my family has thousands of "suspended" AUMs that will probably never be returned.
And so, even though these ranchers throughout the course of a hundred years invested thousands(and perhaps millions) of dollars and sacrificed along the way to obtain these rights through purchase from others, at a whim the government can take everything away with the stroke of a pen. This is the very thing that Clive Bundy singlehandedly took a stand against. Thank you, Clive, from a rancher who considers you a hero.
