FBI investigating Bundy supporters in BLM dispute
KLAS-TV Los Vegas ^ | 5-8-14 | George Knapp, Chief Investigative Reporter

Posted on 05/08/2014 7:26:15 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

LAS VEGAS -- A dramatic development in the saga surrounding rancher Cliven Bundy, the FBI has entered the case.

The 8 News NOW I-Team has learned that FBI agents have started an investigation into the events surrounding a potentially deadly showdown one month ago.

It is one thing for Cliven Bundy and his supporters to square off against an assortment of Bureau of Land Management employees. It is quite another when the FBI enters the picture, and that is exactly what has happened.

The I-Team has confirmed that FBI agents have launched a formal investigation into alleged death threats, intimidation and possible weapons violations that culminated with a dangerous showdown on April 12, and the first people to be interviewed by FBI agents are Metro Police, starting with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillispie.

Federal employees suspended their roundup of Cliven Bundy's cattle, following a confrontation outside the BLM compound near Bunkerville. At the urging of Metro Police, Bundy's cattle were released, but BLM's new director announced the matter wasn't over and would be resolved, one way or another. We now know what that means

How about investigating the BLM for killing Bundy’s cattle and destroying his property?

I hate our government. Hear that Obama, I hate the government.

If they’re investigating the Bundy supporters, they’re investigating the wrong ones.

the I-team was the first (and I think only) to disclose that the order to go ahead and run baby calves to death and bury their mommas in open pits came straight from the White House. No doubt the FBI is there at the same invitation.

I heard an interview on Fox with one of the family members and they said someone tried to offer explosives to them and they told them to get lost. They definitely knew they were being setup.

"(Would there be consequences for somebody there on video tape, on a news camera pointing a gun at a Metro officer, pointing a gun at a federal ranger?) Yes, there is definitely going to be consequences, definitely. That is unacceptable behavior. If we let it go, it would continue into the future," Lombardo said.

t is illegal to point loaded weapons at federal agents, and most people know what would happen, if a suspect pointed a gun at a Metro officer in the Las Vegas valley.

Looks like BLM’S Feudal Lord Reid is now dipping into the unlimited taxpayer piggy bank and buying some of Holder’s finest!

Already paid for, Reid’s Rustlers can’t be far behind - - - - .

The race is ON!

My guess is that Putin will conquer the entire Nation of Ukraine before Feudal Lord Reid puts his fellow Nevada Mormon Clive Bundy out of the Cattle Business.

The shrill tone of this broadcast is pretty amazing —you’d think CITIZENS were kicking in the doors of 93-year-old police officers, smashing up all their stuff, then killing them “for brandishing”.

You’d think CITIZENS were surrounding churches full of kids of cops, then burning the whole structure down, finishing by raising a citizen flag atop the still-burning embers.

You’d think CITIZENS were targeting the skulls of cop moms holding babies, then blasting their brains out.

You’d think CITIZENS were stealing the ranches and cows of cops.

You’d think CITIZENS were buying thousands MRAPs for no reason, buying BILLIONS of bullets, again for no reason.

Their outrage really jumps out at you —I’m sure King George III genuinely felt wronged.

They will go after them one by one, split ‘em up, make them examples. Use the Patriot Act, make them terrorists, and make it very public as a warning to make sure no one does it again.

The ones they can’t get rid of loudly they will get rid of quietly, Stasi style.

And THIS is where OathKeepers needs to start being active.

Whether they were right or wrong to stand down once the rumor of “kinetic action” against the Bundy property started going around is still debatable.

However, once the Feddies start this kind of administrative action, obviously intended to increase the intimidation level, and almost certainly based on the actions of their own people acting as agents provocateur, it’s time for OK to put up or shut up. Their explicit reason for existing is to force the gov to live by the oath to abide by the constitution and serve the public, and punitive “investigations” are a serious abuse of their authority. The OKers in the ranks are going to have to start doing something if they’re to retain credibility.

Fox was the only news outlet which really was there covering this. They have backed off the story since Bundy made comments Fox distanced themselves from so the feds feel they have a green light. Anyone who supports Bundy is a racist, a bigot and a domestic terrorist according to them. The leftist media will cheer any killing on while eating popcorn.

Never, never, never, never talk either to a cop or to a member of the media, no matter what the enticement. Bundy fell into the trap.
