NV sheriff, BLM: Bundy must be held accountable
The Las Vegas Sun ^ | July 5th, 2014 | AP

Posted on 07/05/2014 7:38:26 PM PDT by sockmonkey

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Bureau of Land Management officials say they agree with a Nevada sheriff's position that rancher Cliven Bundy must be held accountable for his role in an April standoff between his armed supporters and the federal agency.

Tne New head of the BLM said back in May that Bundy would be held accountable. This article today, I think is just a warning to Militias, and individuals who go against the Feds will be punished.

Rustler Reid and his hired hand (BLM head and former Reid staffer) Neil Kornze must be held accountable for pure chicanery.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

From the article...Bundy crossed the line when he allowed states’ rights supporters, including self-proclaimed militia members, onto his property to aim guns at police....

The BLM is “working diligently to ensure that those who broke the law are held accountable.”

I think this “State’s Rights Supporters” is being reiterated to give pause to those who would dare to stand up against the current invasion by Illegal Immigrants, sponsored by our Government.

Harry Reid and his cipher of a son conspire with the BLM to procure land for a corrupt deal with a sworn enemy of the United States and one man has the courage to say no... CRUCIFY HIM! Yes, let’s get this in court ASAP. Depositions all around!

Maybe the BLM will make Bundy a Professor of Literature at some over rated East Coast Ivory Tower, and then put him on the cover (smiling) of Time and other vacuous rags. Yeah, that’ll teach him!

Oddly, in Clark County, the “Sheriff” is in charge of both the County and Las Vegas (i.e. “Metro”). He is a Rustler Reid minion/puppet.

Yah, Bundy's seemingly racist veiws in no way excuse Fedzilla's unconstitutal rampage on his ranch
(If they can do that to him, they can do it to anyone .)

But imagine if the feds put 1/1000th of the effort they make in oppressing and harrassing American citizens, (so that multi-millionaires and Marxists in the Govt. can further their interests), imagine if they instead dedicated themselves to protecting Americans from those who would destroy us (I.e. terrorists, crimminals, gang members...exc.) ?

HaPPy 4th!!

Will he be afforded a fair trial with a jury of his peers?

Or??

Is he so much fodder in a federal bureaucracy of rampant regulations that would make a sane man ask Why even bother anymore? Pretending that the powers that be have a clue.. or could care less about lands that go for waste.

All of a sudden a four eyed tortoise with a speech impediment appears speaking a weak french dialect.. and sanity retreats.

I seriesly doubt desert tortoises are any more native than ranchers or earlier foragers in the grand scheme of things

The best way to hold him accountable would be to award him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. As soon as we get a president back into the White House.

Bundy can tell them that the hard drives in his cattle crashed, and that the tortoises were upset about a video.

But in all seriousness-Has anything else been uncovered about Reid and sons possible business deal connection, with trying to force Bundy off his property?

What happened at court?

Does anyone believe this government is NOT acting solely for the purpose of enriching its members and increasing its control over citizens?

Like the old TV show “Lineup,” where the cops always made the statement to those viewing the lineup by saying: “pay no attention to their answers as they often lie.” This would apply, with a few notable exceptions to all big county sheriffs, including Doug Gilespie.

Whatever one or all believe, there is no way to effectively make & have stick the accusation that Reid et al are trying to snake the guy’s land away. Not without a piece of documentation that says “I bet we can use the BLM to force him off his land and leave the door open for us to go solar”. Such a doc obviously does not exist. This is the way the game is skewed: There can be lots and lots of defects in the case when “the case” has no distinct proof of nefarious intent but all the time is claiming “law and order”.

It’s all about the proof that is obtainable versus the presumption that the govt is always right. *With* that presumption, the govt can bankrupt Bundy 50 times over without breaking a sweat.

It is with a strange feeling that those of us who come from the Soviet Union look upon the West of today. It is as though we were neither neighbours on the same planet, nor contemporaries -and yet we contemplate the West from what will be your future, or look back seventy years, to see our past suddenly repeating itself.

And what we see is always the same, always the same as it was then: adults deferring to the opinion of their children; the younger generation carried away by shallow worthless ideas; professors scared of being unfashionable; journalists refusing to take responsibility for the words they squander so profusely; universal sympathy for revolutionary extremists; people with serious objections unable or unwilling to voice them; the majority passively obsessed by a feeling of doom; feeble governments; societies whose defensive reactions have become paralyzed; spiritual confusion leading to political upheaval.

What will happen as a result of all this lies ahead of us. But the time is near, and from bitter memory we can easily predict what these events will be.

BUMP

We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation....” ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

In America at the present moment, in terms of real involved legitimate productive Americans, maybe four in ten are leftist Obama types. Six in ten would rather government stay out of a LOT of stuff, such as schools, health care, regulation, welfare -- six in ten value freedom from government tyranny. In the MSM, however, 9.5 in 10 are liberals. And in elections, systemic vote manipulation and ginning on the left cheats to put the minority in office where they wield tyrannical power of government.

Awareness of the real situation: The media and vote fraud has us all bamboozled into thinking in terms of "idiots who elected these clowns." More like ghosts, frauds, fakes, ginned, harvested, who elected these clowns. They have to cheat because they're the minority. THAT is the awareness of the real situation that right now eludes the right.

Reid wants his solar farm. Patriots, roll out!

Bump again.

Was he the sheriff in charge of the area where the Costco shooting took place, where officers shot down a concealed-carry veteran in front of the store?

If they go after those who helped Bundy, it will be to get a reading on the mood of the People. If successful, we are doomed. If they get stopped again, it won't be long before the masses are given a choice - submit or win CWII.

ABSOLUTELY…economic, political, psychological, social, philosophical, educational and electronic chains are already upon us.

Sometimes the law places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons, and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim — when he defends himself — as a criminal. - Bastiat

I swear they are pushing every button they can to get ‘someone’ or ‘anyone’ to snap so that they can get CWII underway.

If it isn’t the influx of illegals, or the EPA overreach on everything they can touch, the inflaming of the left of the ‘Hobby-Lobby’ decision then it’s whatever else they can come up with.

The time of the ‘death of a thousand paper cuts’ is just about over, I think they are going for the machetes this time.

Frankly if the Feds really want to get CWII started today, then they should just quit funding the EBT cards. That will do it in a heartbeat, or at least in three days when the recipients get really hungry.

I once went to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s website and watched videos about the history of law enforcement in the city and county.

To make a long story short, in the 1970’s law enforcement was consolidated into the LVMPD.

Before that, there was a Las Vegas Police Department for the city and the Clark County Sheriff’s Department covering the county outside the city limits.

I’m not a big fan of police and or government consolidation and that’s what they did in LV and Clark County some 40 years ago.

I think this “State’s Rights Supporters” is being reiterated to give pause to those who would dare to stand up against the current invasion by Illegal Immigrants, sponsored by our Government.

You're probably right, all it will take is one governor to throw a monkey wrench into the immigration works — for examlpe, could you imagine what would happen politically if NM's governor used the authority granted by the State's constitution in the matter?

Art V, Sec. 4. [Governor's executive power; commander of militia.]
The supreme executive power of the state shall be vested in the governor, who shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed. He shall be commander in chief of the military forces of the state, except when they are called into the service of the United States. He shall have power to call out the militia to preserve the public peace, execute the laws, suppress insurrection and repel invasion.
Now combine that with a very public demand for the federal government to abide by Art 4, Sec 4 of the US Constitution:
Art IV, Section. 4.
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.
