‘Not over’? Feds coy over next move in Nevada rancher standoff
Fox News ^ | April 15, 2014 | (Judson Berger/AP)

Posted on 04/15/2014 7:17:45 PM PDT by Olog-hai

Tensions simmered Tuesday in the standoff between federal land managers and a Nevada rancher—but the feds are being coy about how far they’ll go to pursue Cliven Bundy as both sides regroup for their next move.

Federal land managers backed down in a weekend standoff with Bundy after hundreds of states’ rights protesters, including armed militia members, showed up to protest federal officials seizing his cattle. Some protesters had their guns drawn and pointed toward law enforcement, some of whom were also armed, on the scene—ultimately, no shots were fired and the Bureau of Land Management reported that officials left over safety concerns.

Nevada Sen. Harry Reid said afterward that the dispute is “not over.” But whether the feds will keep plugging away with a court challenge or go further is unclear. …

There’s only one way to remove the problem. Relieve the men in office that are stirring the pot from their posts.

We know this wouldn’t stop even if Mr. Bundy showed up with all the back grazing fees. They want the land and removing his cattle for not paying the grazing fees is simply a pretext.

Nothing will happen until after the election. Obama isn’t going to risk a single vote over this.

Why should Bundy have to pay grazing fees? He’s trespassing his cattle to provide for his family. It’s not a crime; it’s an “act of love.”

That's an idea, we all contribute and pay his fees or at least enough to show intent and see what they do then.

Don't downplay the simple and tried-and-true Sarge. They've been used for 100 years for a reason. Not everyone has access to gunpowder, TNT, fireworks and such. Most everyone can get their hands on some kind of petroleum product, oil or soap shavings, an old glass bottle and a rag.

That’s the brake chamber that holds the spring that applies the brakes when air pressure drops below a set point. The chamber itself doesn’t hold pressure. Shooting it won’t stop the MRAP.

"They've been used for 100 years for a reason."

They're cheap, easy and they work...out to about 40 ft.

20 could take out an MRAP.

They are very effective against conventional vehicles and buildings, tents, supply dumps etc.

Especially if those are fuel and ammo dumps.

Will someone please get a stay on that court order until the constitutional issue of who owns the land and which agencies are allowed to use lethal force gets resolved? That would give Bundy at lease a couple more years and we could raise the money he needs overnight.

"You think it would take 20?"

I'd have 20, just in case:)

But while talking numbers it's important to note: NUMBERS give us enormous advantage.

If every patriot resolved that he is going to take out at least one bad guy, no matter what or how, any conflict would be over in a very short period of time.

That can be alongside the gas pump as they refuel, or as they dive through town, or stop for food.

It can be at 600yds from a checkpoint. It could be anywhere, anytime, anyhow.

If the bad guys lost 500 men in one day they would effectively surrender. If they lost 50 per day for a year...it would be regime change.

That’s the brake chamber that holds the spring that applies the brakes when air pressure drops below a set point. The chamber itself doesn’t hold pressure. Shooting it won’t stop the MRAP.

Almost...the chamber is double...the front part has the air piston that holds the brake OFF.....and the second chamber has the spring that puts the brake ON when the air pressure is released...

.

So shooting at the rear of the chamber doesn't do anything UNLESS the front camber and/or the rubber diaphragm is punctured....so releasing the air pressure and jamming the brakes ON.

Should be enough shrapnel and metal parts buzzing around inside the rear chamber to accomplish the task with ease.

“They want the land and removing his cattle for not paying the grazing fees is simply a pretext.”

Romans Chapter 1: verses 28-32. verse 31 reads..”They have no respect for covenant.”

Accuser(s) then steal.

Folks, this the way of the Traducer......Accuse then steal.
(Accuser of the brethren.)

This is the way Extortion—Care is set to work also. Make up “health” issues (which is actually to “accuse”), then steal.

Their minds are as Romans Chapter 1: verses 28-32. verse 31 reads..”They have no respect for covenant.”
Their mind possessions given over to the Prince and power of the air, diabolis actually becoming these people themselves. The plan, “to kill, steal, and destroy.”

God will NOT be mocked. “Resist the Dia-Bolis, and he will flee from you.”

Greta on FOX tonight showed the body of one dead cow that the Bureau of Feudal Land Management has tried to bury with sand and gravel.

Any FReeper out there with an image of it, please post it here. Thanks.

BTW, Greta repeated a quote of up to $2,200 per cow value on the hoof.

“Stonewall” Reid better get his checkbook ready!

It won't work because they have a contract he has to sign, that's why he won't pay them.

They want him to drastically reduce his herd, and follow all kinds of regulations.

Nothing will work but fighting back because they really just want to destroy him and all ranches, and paint it to make him look like a bad guy.

Thanks, but that wasn’t it.

The one on Greta at 1805 hours CST had her legs and head covered with sand and gravel from a pit that the Federal Feudal Lords had dug.

That makes two cattle that Reid needs to write a check for.

There are going to be between 70,000 to 100,000 bikers in Laughlin next weekend for the Laughlin River Run. Maybe they are looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon?? It’s about 200 miles from there to the Bundy Ranch. Little long for a day ride, but doable. Cowboys and Bikers, Kindred Spirits. Just saying.

My bet is they will let this cool off until after the Nov elections, they don't want the optics to hurt the dems.

.After the elections, whether the dems win or lose, all bets are off.If the dems lose in the midterms Nov and Dec will be the most dangerous time in America in my lifetime. If they win it will be the next 2 yrs.
