Skip to comments.Lawbreaking Rancher Cliven Bundy Wins Victory That Will Embolden Domestic Terrorists (BARF!)
Posted on 04/12/2014 3:16:57 PM PDT by tcrlaf
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management announced today that it was ending its effort to seize Cliven Bundys herd of cattle that has been illegally grazing on federal land. The reason the BLM suspended the cattle round up was to protect the safety of federal employees and members of the general public. Bundy and a smattering of his right-wing supporters have threatened to wage a range war if the government continues with its effort to enforce the law. Let that sink in for a minute. The government is halting their efforts to enforce the law because of the threats being made by Bundy supporters.
In other words, the threat of violent opposition to the federal government enforcing current law, caused the government to back down and yield to the demands of domestic terrorists.

Hey Keith time to take your whoopin. LOL!!!
I just thank God and the militia and the oathkeepers that stood by his side. Obviously most public opinion was with him and amazingly BLM found some sense.
Watch out, though! I fear this may be a temporary thing and they will come unannounced to finish the job.
When in hell did it start being OK for the feds to buy up all the land?
You forgot one.
I was about to say that it must smell nice up in the author’s backside, but then I saw the rest of the comments. Nice to see how many people are honest about their support for fascism.
G-D these people are idiots beyond belief. I read some of the comments on that commie website. I’m glad I hadn’t had my lunch yet
Keith Brekhus recent publications seem to indicate a fascination with the Lavender Mob:
Gay Commuters, Gay Integrators: Gay Suburban Identity Strategies in the Post-Closeted Era
Commuting to Homosexuality: Laud Humphreys Unheralded Contribution to the Sociology of Identity.
“Peacocks, Chameleons, Centaurs: Gay Suburbia and the Grammar of Social Identity. “
“Social Marking and the Mental Coloring of Identity: Sexual Identity Construction and Maintenance in the United States.”
I bet those are real page turners.
And what is he doing up in Montana? Looking for Brokeback cowboys? Shouldn’t he be in west Hollywood?
This is so stooooooooooopid or maybe not!
Safety of federal employees? weren't they the guys with guns?
Didn't the federal employees use the guns against the general public, disarm and threaten them?
So what this author says is that it is the federal employees who endangered the general public.
“the threat of violent opposition to the federal government enforcing current law, caused the government to back down and yield to the demands”
Well it seems to work for the illegals.
Did Mr. Bundy actually threaten a ‘range war’?
Not that I heard.
To a demented liberal conservatives are far more dangerous to the country than Al-Qaeda or any other radical Muslim group. Read the comments on that site and you’ll see how whacked in the mind these lefties are.
It amazes me that the Enforcement agency did not set up a roadblock , check point and confiscate any weapons on board! Is truly a sight for sore eyes to see the Feds put in their place, but I don’t think this is the end of it! Thankful Prayers for all involved! BLM members get a new job!
Not one mention that the BLM showed up to “round up cattle” with machine guns, tasers, pepper spray, and attack dogs.
“This is how these morons actually think, folks...”
I had never heard of this site until you posted the article today. The author is just a “run of the mill” shill for the far left and our socialist government.
There is a lot more to the Bundy Ranch story. The funny thing is the Left are clever, unscrupulous and masterful liars. But, they always end up hanging themselves in the end because, quite frankly, they are ignorant and arrogant.
Take Harry Reid and his son Roy for example, they are both greedy, ignorant criminals. They are so arrogant they thought their shenanigans would never be discovered. They think they are above everyone. Old Harry had all the bases covered. He even had one of his cronies in place at the head of BLM.
What could possibly go wrong? Everything....and it will get even worse for them as time goes by.
As far as the left calling conservatives terrorists, that is laughable. Even the FBI has disassociated itself from the Southern Poverty Law Center because of their radical, unbiased garbage.
I think we all know who the real terrorists are....and it isn’t the law abiding, God fearing Conservatives.
Let the Leftists loons twist in the wind.
That would be illegal. And dangerous as hell.
>>It amazes me that the Enforcement agency did not set up a roadblock , check point and confiscate any weapons on board! <<
That would have resulted in a real mess. On what grounds could they confiscate any weapons on board?

that should stick
You know what really really gets under their skin about this whole affair? Leftists see themselves as crusading heroes fighting against the establishment, but their direct actions never produce results.
It cost just a fraction of that to fly to Crawford, Texas and back no matter how many times Bush did it.
I thought you would be proud.Afterall, we are following in the footsteps of one Eric Holder. He is the one that says, "we can choose which laws to enforce. So we choose which laws we abide by.
Afterall remember, Eric demonstrated how to do . . .
As college student, Eric Holder participated in armed takeover of former Columbia University ROTC .
So you see dear Keith, you really, really domt want to go there buddy!
The only threat from the right wing extremists is their threat to left wing extremist socialism. Freedom and individualism is the enemy of big government socialism. I guess the writer got that right. I think the only reason the Feds backed off was because Hitlery is in Los Vegas and would be an embarrassment to the d’RATs that would lessen her chances of being elected president.
The feds control 87% of Nevada, thats a crime.
You opened my eyes to something and for that I thank you. For years I have had trouble understanding why they persist in labeling us racist even though we know it just ain’t so. (Who was the comedian who said, “You think seeing a black guy having sex with a white girl makes me angry? Hell, I don’t hardly care, we got thirty tapes of that stuff at the double wide.”). Not that I am into porn but I think he was making a pretty subtle point. Even the REAL knuckledraggers don’t have the racist hatred that we are accused of. Then your post hit me. That’s it. An epiphany. They have been afraid of a black uprising for decades at least if not centuries. They really fear blacks and conservatives coming together. I mean REALLY FEAR. This is a connection they can NEVER allow. Not only at the polls, if you know what I mean. Armed whites and armed blacks standing together scares the living crap outa them. So they proceed to label us racist at every turn to make blacks hate us. Talk about Machiavellian! So far it is working for them, though.
Remember the Louisiana Purchase?
Give me some men who are stout-hearted men
Who will fight for the right they adore
Start me with ten who are stout-hearted men
And I'll soon give you ten thousand more
And bolder and bolder
They grow as they go to the fore
Then there's nothing in the world can halt or mar a plan
When stout-hearted men can stick together man to man !
We are domestic terrorists when we fight against marxist commies and thier agenda
Mark Steyn can likely do much better, but until he does, I’m goin’ with it.
I think we need to start one of those White House petitions to made MooseShell get a BLM permit for her grazing on public lands at the White House.

The same way several hundred thousand gun-owners in Connecticut emboldened our cousins in NY state to tell their legislature to "screw off".
Smatterings, splurges, scintillas, smidgens...whatever.
In other words, the threat of violent opposition to the federal government enforcing current law, caused the government to back down and yield to the demands of freedom loving Americans.
Who cares what a butt-ranger says...

Legal Pot, Better Pay, And Its Okay To Be Gay: US Electorate Snubs Tea Party Agenda
By Keith Brekhus on January 17, 2014
Wow. That web site is as unhinged as DUmbassville....
He writes like a homosexual cretin to boot.
Well, he does have a face for radio. And a degree for unemployment.
I enjoyed the comments there. Especially the ones from “dandi.” Could that be our “dandi?”
I wouldn’t rush to claim victory just yet. I am very happy for All of us and for my Country that violence was averted for the moment. The tinder has been lit and is smoking, however, and the People need to know what the facts are (is this Federal or State or Private land?)and who the government actors are who precipitated this totally contrived and unnecessary confrontation at this time. This had the immediate potential to turn into a massacre because the BLM, among many other Federal bureaucracies, have been given the authority and the funding to form and maintain their own paramilitary police forces and act as Judges, Juries and Executioner. This needs a fast and public look by the House and, after November, Congress needs to look into the entire issue of Federal bureaucracies essentially making their own rules, adjudicating the guilt of citizens who violate them and running their own little armies to enforce their decisions as they wish as well as impeach and convict each and every one of the BLM politicians who made the whole series of bad decisions that led up to the confrontations that erupted yesterday. NEVER AGAIN!!.
Bundy et al, won the battle, but the war is long from over.
