Armed guards surround Bundy, supporters fear imminent threat
KLAS TV8 - Las Vegas ^ | 14 April 2014 | Lauren Rozyla

Posted on 04/14/2014 8:50:50 PM PDT by Errant

LAS VEGAS -- Local rancher Cliven Bundy may have his cattle back, but his supporters say they are still preparing for an imminent threat.

Militia groups from all over the country say they are flocking to the Bundy ranch to protect the family from a feared federal government raid.

The Bureau of Land Management allowed Bundy to release his cattle Saturday, after they felt threatened.

Bundy now has a whole contingent of armed guards surrounding him 24 hours a day.

"They're just there, trying to make sure something crazy doesn't happen to him," Bundy's son Ammon Bundy said.

His security detail and family feel he is someone to be protected because of what the federal government could do.

“His security detail and family feel he is someone to be protected because of what the federal government could do.”

In my lifetime, the Federal Government has always been an opposition, but never a threat to kill people for simply standing up to them.

Until now....

Good. Militias need to keep the peace while changing the strategy of the Feds. Now let’s start thinking two moves ahead of the Feds.

Godspeed patriots, God bless the militia. If every person with the desire put their feet into the fire, America would be free again and the tyrants would return to their spiderholes. Pray for every man and woman manning a post tonight.

The 'elites' running our government, now seem to view the American Heartland and its small communities and rural areas as Fulushia. Why else the need for billions of rounds of 'extra' ammo, allowing illegals to cross into our country of fighting age, militarization of police forces, and thousands of wheeled armored vehicles being deployed throughout the nation?!

I have a bad feeling about all of this...

Yeah, I saw video of that smirking serpent. You know he's calling upon those who owe him in order to seek revenge on this family for crossing him and upsetting his plans.

We've got to get the power back into the people's hands and away from the few hundred corrupt individuals that have it now.

I hear you. I'm looking into joining my State militia. I've done a little research on them. I meet or exceed all requirements for gear and physical fitness... Have to do some serious thinking about the time and $ commitment. But if it is important enough...

There is no good way forward for the govt in this situation now. They don’t know how to handle an equal opposing force. They are used to taking people down when they are vulnerable and unarmed.

I predict if the LVPD or the BLM try a SWAT raid its going to go down in flames.

I notice the FBI and US Marshals don’t seem to want any part of this thing.

I still do, but only when passing through an accident area etc. I'll make eye contact with the officers/deputies doing traffic control and wave - just to let them know I see them and I'm paying attention to them, not gawking. A simple courtesy.

Good luck to you. The civilian militias need to be a cadre force, prepared to fill out when the need arrives, IMO.

Now is the time for a legal team militia to open a second front. They need to demand that Bundy’s win be codified into a formal agreement, treaty, law, court order, etc,,,,.
As the feds are rocked back on their heels, this is a great time to shove them harder.
Because somewhere, they are meeting again at 8am, plotting their next move.

Now is the time to vanquish them completely, stripping away their bogus casus belli.

I think they have failed to take into account just how many patriots are unemployed thanks to anti-business and anti-job federal policies and laws.

We're pissed, and we don't have to rush back to our jobs.

Sure there is. Issue an apology, and recognize his grazing rights where his family has grazed for over 12 decades. Why isn’t that an option?

It’s so sad that we BELIEVE the federal government should be feared. Then again, maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe people are waking up.

But I also want to point out that’s it not just the feds. This tyranny goes all the way down to small town cops.

But I’m talking months, perhaps years. Because the feds have done this, they have essentially made Bundy a political prisoner. His ranch needs guarding 24/7 from a powerful entity with unlimited funds who can swoop in at a moment’s notice.

If we want to secure the freedoms and liberties of the last rancher in Nevada, we need action on behalf of the state, a groundswell of pro-state’s rights sentiment. It doesn’t help that the Nevada Republican Party just effectively issued a letter of surrender to the Democrats, but it is still possible to get the state to intervene and offer defense for the Bundy ranch. It is, at base, the state’s duty which it is failing to fulfill.

This entire government is on the verge of collapse. It's just a matter of time. Whenever a country is past the ability to even borrow, and then has to print money out of 'thin air', it's over. There are rumors floating around that even this is an attempt to trade the Chinese our land for the trillion in US debt they hold.

It's the same ploy they've used on other countries, trapping them in debt then taking their resources. Now it's our turn.

The BATF sure got their asses handed to them in Waco. But they got even when their compadres from the FBI, and the army, went in with tanks. Then McVeigh hit them back with fertilzer.

It’s basically been quiet since then. The one thing going for the people is the internet. Can you imagine how Ruby Ridge and Waco would have turned out if they had the internet.
