BLM workers on alert after wrangler threatened with gun on I-15 Terror ploy? Assailants hide
The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | May 07 2014 | Erin Alberty

Posted on 05/11/2014 9:09:58 AM PDT by Nachum

With anti-government sentiments roiling in the aftermath of Cliven Bundy’s Nevada standoff, government workers in western Utah are stripping BLM logos from their vehicles after two motorists brandished a gun and displayed a threatening sign at a federal wrangler who was driving Tuesday in Juab County.

The wrangler was driving a load of horses and burros north on Interstate 15 about 11 a.m. near Mills when a dark blue Dodge 1500 extended-cab pickup pulled up alongside the wrangler. The two occupants "told him he was No. 1 with that certain gesture," said Eric Reid, the wrangler’s supervisor at the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s Fillmore Field Office.

The pickup fell back and the wrangler continued north. A few minutes later, the pickup reappeared, Reid said. The men, wearing hoods, held up a sign, apparently scrawled on a piece of paper, that read, "You need to die." One of the men pointed what appeared to be a Glock handgun at the wrangler.

The wrangler tried to make out a license plate number, but the plate had been covered with duct tape, Reid said.

Oh what a bummer that were no witnesses, eh? A wonderful story from a BLM employee which paints all the protestors as psychos. I’ll put this in the same category as all those racial, sexual bullshit stories.

BLM “worker”...does anyone believe the government “worker”? The government and its agents lie. Liars lie...that’s what they do.

Well, I can only say that I have zero sympathy for the BLM after their wannabe thug gangster behavior.
A legitimate government doesn’t send thugs out to behave like Chicago gangland trash.

So now the BLM law enforcement goons, in unmarked cars, will be able to pull people over? If the wranglers are removing BLM symbols, I’m sure LE is next. So then we become some banana republic like Mexico — where unmarked vehicles and LE-types commit highway robbery all the time.

A set up to get a desired reaction. The hood wearers were BLM Agents. the “wrangler” probably was.

I heard this on the news.

My bet?

It was a set up by the BLM workers themselves or those very high in the administration.

Purpose?

To stir up sympathy for government functionaries and to turn public opinion against those who support the Constitution.

Next act by the Marxofascists?

This looks like a classic government false flag operation.
Nothing happened, no evidence, but a lot of Pro Fascist government propaganda.
I would expect more such incidents from paid government agitators.

400 U.S. mercenaries to fight in eastern Ukraine against the separatists.
The reported “Bild am Sonntag” and refers to intelligence information .
The fighters come therefore from military service Academi , formerly
known as Blackwater .

Berlin - It was a clearly worded denial . “ Irresponsible bloggers and
online reporters” have “ rumors” spread , according to which employees
of the company Academi in Ukraine are in use . This is false and nothing
more than a “ sensationalist attempt to create hysteria .” Thus spoke the
U.S. military service , formerly passes under the name Blackwater
infamous notoriety, on March 17 on its website.

The Russian state news agency “ Ria Novosti “ of course put on 7 April by:
Blackwater fighters acted in eastern Ukraine - and in the uniform of
Ukrainian special police “Sokol” . An independent confirmation of the fact
there was not.

So you put duct tape over your plates, bring hoodies and firearms on your trip all in hopes of coming across a wrangler working for BLM just so you can threaten them?

Too contrived for me...

Exactly. It would appear that the BLM is employing US mercenaries to bounce from spot to spot as they please.

I think there were government employees who were seriously harassed around 1770. Something to do with Stamps or tea?

I'll have to do some reading to remind myself of how that turned out.

This story is convenient and concocted BS. They discuss and nail down up front potential loose ends that might come up as questions, such as why if they weren’t stalking them were the license plates covered. Or how they pulled back, then pulled up with written sign, because everyone just carries around paper and marker in their vehicle just in case they run into the BLM.

They do this to give the story plausibility, but no one who tells the truth actually tells a story like that. It is classic govt-style manufactured cover. They just wanted to ability to go unmarked.

If they were hauling horses and burros, it might have been the “anti horse slaughter” nuts. They are all over the BLM because they are getting rid of some of the thousands of “wild” horses that have been pulled off the ranges. We the tax payers are spending lots of bucks keeping these horses. The nutjobs are even giving regular horse people trouble because we breed our own and don't save a mustang instead.

Now BLM workers are removing the agency’s logo from their vehicles as a "precaution," Reid said.

Sort of like covering your license plate with duct tape, isn't it?

License plate covered with duct tape? Not even necessary to find the perps. You know the make and model. The area is not to populated and quite possibly the local LEO’s know who owns the truck. If not gather all owner info on that particular truck and cross check the owner database with cell phone numbers. Then just simply cross check that info with cell tower records and Viola! you have a very narrow list of suspects. But all that could only happen if the event had actually happened.

how many "dark blue Dodge 1500 extended-cab pickup" trucks can there be near there that they don't pay every one of their owners a visit?

and if it IS true, they should all go straight to to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200 for felony stooopidity on top of what ever else they are charged with

It certainly seems that way. It may be that the BLM is getting ready to move in on Bundy. Those around Bundy should be aware that the BLM is now using unmarked vehicles, and anyone driving a "dark blue Dodge 1500 extended-cab pickup" may be a pre-determined target.

One of the men pointed what appeared to be a Glock handgun at the wrangler.

Someone without the presence of mind to get a cell phone pic or any other evidence, or to dial 9-1-1 when there was time for a real response, is expert enough to identify a Glock pointed at him? My guess is that this only happened in an email from a Senator with a financial interest in the outcome to a journalist hired to be a "wrnagler" for the day and paid to have this experience and then fear for his life.

Why I don't believe this; "The wrangler tried to make out a license plate number, but the plate had been covered with duct tape, Reid said."

In this day and age everyone has a cell phone, cell phones take pictures, where are the pictures? The whole story is fabricated, it is the US GØvt doing what the US GØvt does best, LYING!

This is a GØvt tax sucking scum bag making up a lie to make itself look like a man.
