Armed guards surround Bundy, supporters fear imminent threat
KLAS TV8 - Las Vegas ^ | 14 April 2014 | Lauren Rozyla

Posted on 04/14/2014 8:50:50 PM PDT by Errant

LAS VEGAS -- Local rancher Cliven Bundy may have his cattle back, but his supporters say they are still preparing for an imminent threat.

Militia groups from all over the country say they are flocking to the Bundy ranch to protect the family from a feared federal government raid.

The Bureau of Land Management allowed Bundy to release his cattle Saturday, after they felt threatened.

Bundy now has a whole contingent of armed guards surrounding him 24 hours a day.

"They're just there, trying to make sure something crazy doesn't happen to him," Bundy's son Ammon Bundy said.

His security detail and family feel he is someone to be protected because of what the federal government could do.

I’d bet that if Bundy had continued paying the grazing fees they would still be after his ranch and trying to run him off. They have run everyone else off.

If Bundy payed all the back fees now it probably would make zero difference.

What would be a real hoot is if Putin stepped up and payed those back fees...lol In the interest of peace and all.
The press would have a field day with such a story. The coverage would make Obama look like a total ass for sending goons with machine guns to collect fees for cows eating grass out in the middle of nowhere.

The more someone ponders the stupidity of a riot squad outfitted to look like special forces charging forth to collect fees for cow grazing the sillier the whole US looks.

Foreigners must think we are all lunatics. Maybe we are?? We elected these fools. or did we!?

The BATFE sure got behind F&F.

Now they need to be disbanded.

Some have said Pete Santilla is an FBI informant, shows up at all these types of uprisings. But that could be dis-information too...no doubt they all need to be careful. Heck they’re even on the social networks hiding out, they have “teams” of people to scout and put out stuff that isn’t true.

He never stopped paying the grazing fees.....The BLM refused to take it and told him he’d have to send it to the Government...that he refused to do.

That small group of cows is similar to our small herd here.

We only have 60 acres or so and it’s about the limit for the land.

We have freezers full of very tasty beef! YUM.

Fresh eggs from free range chickens and meat from grass fed beef. No hogs though...they are just too stinky :-)

It’s real work taking care of the very few cows we have..I can’t imaging having 900 head..whew

I want to get some goats, I really like goats. Can’t abide sheep though.

We've got to get the power back into the people's hands and away from the few hundred corrupt individuals that have it now.

Perhaps folks need to start carrying ropes and let the corrupt pols see them and understand the feeling behind carrying of that rope. Just make sure it is long enough to go over the top of nearest lamp post and room for the noose.

Now is the time for a legal team militia to open a second front.

And a good time to start boning up on guerrilla warfare tactics in urban settings. There's much to learn from groups like the IRA for example or from the Viet Cong. They used it against the US in Viet Nam, against far superior forces, namely us Americans.

It’s clear from Reid’s comments and those of his lackey corrupt paid reporter Jon Ralston tonight on Channel 3 that they want us arrested and killed.

No turning back now I am afraid. They are bringing the power of the state to bear.

It looks more and more like they will push until someone snaps, or until someone, even not wanting to give them the excuse, will have no choice but to resort to force to protect the weak or innocent.
If this is the case, perhaps we should consider that the longer we wait for that to happen, the more prepared they will be for it, and the more worn down we will be, not to mention the more observed, vilified, legally encumbered, disarmed, disheartened...
On the other hand, any leadership on our side does not seem ready to step up, be acknowledged, and lead. Perhaps they will be ready when the time comes.
My thought has been evolving on this. I do not want things to break out the way they seem likely to do so. But if it is inevitable, why delay overlong?

I was just referencing prevention and detection methods not the threat reaction measures but I do agree “highly assymmetrical action” or the element of surprise methods by utlizing uncommon, unexpected, and non-mainstream methods could be highly effective. A large percentage of the conservatives are former LEOs and military which is a good thing, especially when dealing with an opponent who may have the same mindset and realize that his Communist overlords are scuzzbuckets with no integrity and switch sides in the heat of battle. Well at least before they install brain stem implants that the can trigger remotely to cause pain if they don’t obey...j/k on that last part...: )

The element of trust among men today is ‘thin’, and needs to be so.... Thank the Lord that nothing gets by Him....He sees it all!

Praying that folks there will be given God’s eyes and ears in what they see and hear...they need Him far more than some of them likely realize.

They need to seek what HE wants ‘first’ before they plan, so that it’s His plan not man’s, then ask Him to bless what they believe He’s asking of them.

I saw a cow have a calf one time....it was amazing!

Before I lost my husband we had a Case International Tractor and Farm equipment Dealership, among some other business ventures, so I was familiar with many farmers in our area....but not much with their actual farms itself.

In the rear of our Dealership a farmer leased the property and barn from us to raise ‘beef cattle’. It was not til then that I realized there were beef cattle and milking cattle! (Dah)

I think with 900 head of cattle...is why Cliven has that small helicopter....he can keep an eye on them then.

I understand they lost about 130 head due to the BLM’s driving them so hard they died from heat exhaustion....and because it was calfing season many of the little ones were seperated from the mothers because the BLM helicopter pilots rode too close to the ground etc. That’s not counting the ones they had already hauled off before they could be stopped.
