Vengeancia (updated April 22, 2014) Party at Bundy Ranch, Friday, April 18, 2014. Read more. According to David Knight, reporting for Alex Jones Infowars Live on 4/12/14, the BLM has backed down.

“For 20 long years, BLM members have worked non-stop at what boils down to trying to frame Rancher Cliven Bundy. It is time to ‘frame’ Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid point man Neil Kornze.
Frame him in the kind of poster that identified cattle rustlers down at the local post office in days of yore. That way, Kornze no longer rides the drifted plains as a faceless bureaucrat but as someone everyone can readily identify as the perp.” From Canada Free Press, read more. Here are more pictures of Neil Kornze.
Question: Is BLM the property of “taxpayers,” or is it the property of We, the People? Who owns the U.S. corporation actors aka “taxpayers?” Is it We, the People, or is it bankstering globalists that have stolen America right out from under, we, the clueless sheeple, via treason and fraud?

“As I noted over the weekend, for example, Bundy was not satisfied with the return of his cattle; he also demanded that all federal officials in the area be disarmed at gunpoint and that their weapons be delivered to him personally.” Read more.
“Federal agent Paul Horner, a 14-year veteran of the force, spoke with National Report by phone and had this to say: ‘Under direct orders from the FBI and the DOJ, on behalf of the BLM, we have infiltrated the crowd with armed undercover agents….we have orders to make arrests and confiscate firearms.” Read more.
“The Southern Poverty Law Center routinely conflates racial hatred with so-called anti-government extremism. For the SPLC and liberals in general, distrust and even hatred of the government is a crime on par with racism or homophobia. Many leftist libs insist tea party and patriot groups are ‘channeling the spirit of Timothy McVeigh,’ thus conjuring dangerous hatred the government must address.” Read more.
“With the memory of Ruby Ridge, Idaho, and Waco, Texas, still very vivid in the collective memory of the American people comes another example of a federal government run amuck. A rancher in Nevada is watching the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) seize his cattle and arrest his son for simply taking pictures of the events….
“Did the family do anything violent? No. Did they do anything immoral? No. Did they even do anything wrong? No. Did they do anything illegal? Well, that’s where the story gets interesting.” Read more from Chuck Baldwin.

‘We’re waiting for them to release the cattle….it was a very tense scene….the BLM was telling everyone to back down….They had weapons, they would shoot….they were fully armed in their bullet-proof vests….’ David Knight, Infowars
According to David Knight, ‘After a while, a BLM representative came out and wanted to talk to the Bundys….they didn’t want to negotiate with BLM….
When the sheriff came, they negotiated with the sheriff….the militarized police didn’t actually stand down; they kind of walked backwards with their guns still held up….kind of a mix between a goosestep and a moonwalk.” Read more.
“The U.S. government called off its attempt to round up a herd of cattle that it said was grazing illegally in Nevada after hundreds of protesters created a showdown with federal officials.”
‘Based on information about conditions on the ground and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,’ Neil Kornze, director of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, said in a statement.” Read more.
“The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an ‘endangered tortoise.’ But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.” Read more.

“And it’s not just the citizen militias that are preparing to take action. The governor of Nevada has officially condemned the federal government’s actions, though he has yet to take any steps afforded to him under State law.

“An area just outside of the little town of Bunkerville, Nevada, with a population of around a thousand people, may go down in history.

Because it looks like the second American Revolution may start there…and soon.” Read more.
A few days ago, Infowars reported “Federal snipers with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) trained guns on members of a family… after they dared to stop and take video footage of cattle outside the bounds of a designated ‘First Amendment Area,’ before arresting one of the men for non-compliance.” Read more, below, and watch these recent videos, here and here.

From Infowars: “The cattle were being rounded up by BLM officers as part of a crackdown on Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who has refused to pay ‘grazing fees’ demanded by the feds as a result of a re-classification of 600,000 acres of federal land in northeastern Clark County which Bundy claims has been in his family for generations.”
‘I’ve tried to pay Nevada state, Clark County….they’ve got some of my money in their coffers right now. But I’m not gonna pay my money to the wrong landlord. And I’m not gonna pay my money to BLM to manage me out of business.’ Cliven Bundy
“Some fear the dispute could turn into a Ruby Ridge-style violent standoff because Bundy has said he is prepared to become a martyr for what he perceives as a constitutional stance against tyranny.” Read more.
“Public comments during Moapa Valley Town Board meeting regarding Cliven Bundy 4/09/14. Good friend of Cliven Bundy gives a great speech and describes the situation with the BLM….” Read more.
Previously, Infowars reported: “Supporters of Nevada cattle ranch Cliven Bundy violated a ‘First Amendment Area’ by staging a rally in support of Bundy, who earlier declared a ‘range war’ against federal authorities in response to a land dispute that threatens to escalate into a Waco-style standoff.
“Bundy is currently embroiled in a spat with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over his long standing refusal to acknowledge a 1993 modification to grazing rights on land that Bundy asserts has been in his family since 1870.
“On Saturday, hundreds of federal officials, aided by helicopters, low flying aircraft and hired cowboys, began rounding up Bundy’s cattle in northeastern Clark County. The feds say the move is about enforcing the law and protecting the endangered desert tortoise, but the Bundy family says the spat represents a showdown between big government and American farmers.
‘We’ve had enough, we’re going to take our land back, we’re done,’ said Bundy’s wife, Carol Bundy, adding that the rally was held ‘to show that we are not standing alone. People are getting tired of the federal government having unlimited power.’
“More than 100 supporters violated a crudely taped off ‘First Amendment Area’ to rally in support of the Bundy family, erecting two flagpoles with the words ‘We the People’ attached, above a flag which read, ‘Liberty Freedom For God We Stand’. The first amendment area stood empty, with one sign nearby declaring, ’1st Amendment is not an area.’
‘I grew up on this ranch. This is what we knew,’ said Margaret Houston, Cliven Bundy’s younger sister. ‘It’s got nothing to do with the cattle and the tortoises. It’s about taking our rights — power — and it’s wrong.’ ‘Right now it looks like the movie Red Dawn,’ said, Ryan Bundy. ‘Right now we’ve got 200 plus federal agents up there in a military compound that they have put together and they’ve got snipers….everybody’s armed, and they’ve been monitoring our ranch with high-tech surveillance equipment….it was never about the grazing fees, it’s about control.’
Ranch manager Derrel Spencer warned that a ‘revolution”’was brewing unless a solution could be found to settle the dispute.” Read more.
According to Henry Brean and Ben Botkin at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “A cheer erupted from the cowboy-hatted crowd early Monday afternoon as Cliven Bundy’s youngest daughter delivered the news: Davey had been set free. ‘They gave him lunch and let him out,’ Stetsy Cox, 21, told the assembled group of relatives and sympathizers at a rally for the embattled ranch family near the banks of the Virgin River.
“In downtown Las Vegas a short time later, Dave Bundy spoke to the media about his arrest the day before in the federal roundup of his father’s cattle from public land 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
‘The federal government has seized Nevada’s sovereignty….Nevada’s statehood.’ Cliven Bundy
“The 37-year-old said heavily armed federal agents roughed him up and arrested him for exercising his constitutional rights on a state highway in northeast Clark County on Sunday.
“They got on their loudspeaker and said that everyone needed to leave,” Dave Bundy said during an impromptu news conference alongside his father outside a 7-Eleven on Las Vegas Boulevard. “I stood there and continued to express my First Amendment right to protest, and they approached me and said that if I didn’t leave, they’d arrest me.”
“The younger Bundy said he was taking photographs and protesting peacefully at the time. Natalie Collins, a spokeswoman for the Nevada U.S. attorney’s office, said Bundy was cited on misdemeanor charges of ‘refusing to disperse’ and resisting arrest. Earlier, BLM spokeswoman Kirsten Cannon said Bundy was taken into custody to “protect public safety and maintain the peace.”
“The Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service support the public’s right to express opinions peacefully and lawfully. However, if an individual threatens, intimidates or assaults another individual or impedes the impoundment, they may be arrested in accordance with local, state or Federal laws,” Cannon said in a statement. Cliven Bundy viewed his son’s arrest differently.
“What’s happening is they had stole cattle from me, and now they have taken their prisoner,” the father said. “Davey is a political prisoner. That’s what you want to call him — he’s a political prisoner.”
“That sentiment appeared on several handmade protest signs at Monday’s rally, which drew more than 100 people to a tract of private ranch land next to the Riverside bridge on state Route 170. The crowd gathered in response to an announcement Cliven Bundy sent Sunday night, after his son’s arrest, promising a range war and inviting the press to come cover it. But Monday’s event wound up looking more like a barn-raising.
“After a prayer and some speeches, the group walked up a nearby hill and gathered along the highway on land owned by one of Bundy’s neighbors. There they erected two 50-foot flag poles topped with metal script letters reading “We the People” and strung with a huge banner, the American flag and the flags of Nevada and Clark County. They plan to use this spot as a rallying point for daily protests. As they worked, cattle trucks escorted by BLM patrol vehicles kicked up dust along dirt roads in the distance.
“Federal agents and contract cowboys — both on the ground and in the air, with at least one helicopter — expected to spend the next month or so rounding up Bundy’s herd, which could include more than 900 animals scattered over a remote, 90-mile swath of mountains and desert south of Mesquite.
“The BLM and the National Park Service have closed off public access to almost 600,000 acres of federal land for the roundup.
Bundy considers much of that public land to use as he sees fit, but the BLM canceled his federal grazing permit 20 years ago after the rancher refused to accept new land-use rules for protecting the threatened desert tortoise and stopped paying his fees.
In the decades since, Bundy has challenged or ignored repeated directives from the government to remove his livestock from public land. Two federal court orders issued within the last year authorized authorities to impound the ‘trespass cattle.’ The operation got underway Saturday morning and brought in 234 head of cattle through Monday. Dave Bundy showed a Review-Journal reporter his scratched face and swollen, scraped hands while describing his arrest.
‘Without any further questions, two rangers surrounded and a third one approached me, and they all jumped me, pulling different directions. And then a couple other guys jumped in, and they took me to the ground, Dave Bundy said.
“He said, ‘One ranger had had his knee on my spine, and the other one was on my head with his knee on the side of my head and his other knee on the back of my neck.’ Dave Bundy maintains his arrest was improper because he was standing along the side of Route 170 in a state right-of-way. BLM officials said the right-of-way is under their jurisdiction and within an area their agency had closed to the public. When asked about Dave Bundy’s allegations of mistreatment, federal officials pointed to the charges for which he was cited, including resisting arrest.
“Cliven Bundy was in Las Vegas early Monday to meet with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie, but it had nothing to do with his son’s arrest. Gillespie said their meeting was arranged on Saturday.
Bundy wanted contact information for Metro supervisors in his area, Gillespie said, and the sheriff provided him the information. But Gillespie reiterated that the Metropolitan Police Department has no plans to involve itself in the roundup.
‘This is strictly a federal operation,’ he said. In a statement released Monday, the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association also distanced itself from Bundy and his livestock, noting that it supports effective range management and cooperation among agencies to balance ranching and the conservation of wildlife. Though ‘sensitive and concerned how the Bundy cattle confiscation situation has evolved,’ association leaders want no part of the dispute between the rancher and the federal courts.
‘Nevada Cattlemen’s Association does not feel it is in our best interest to interfere in the process of adjudication in this matter,’ the association said.
“Back at the rally, Bundy’s immediate family members served Sloppy Joes for lunch and supplied their supporters with cold drinks and popsicles. No firearms were spotted in the crowd. Margaret Houston, Cliven Bundy’s younger sister, drove up from Logandale, at the southern edge of the temporary closure area, to take part in the protest. She said she hates to see the federal land outside her back door closed to the public while her family’s livelihood is gathered up and trucked away.
‘I grew up on this ranch. This is what we knew,’ she said. ‘It’s got nothing to do with the cattle and the tortoises. It’s about taking our rights — power — and it’s wrong.’ A few miles up the road, a ‘First Amendment Area’ the BLM set up for rallies like this stood empty, save for a few signs attached to the outside of the orange plastic pen. One of them read: ’1st Amendment is not an area.’ As for Dave Bundy, he was kept at the Henderson Detention Center overnight, then released late Monday morning with his misdemeanor tickets in hand.
‘They came in, wrote these citations, gave me a sack lunch and turned me loose,’ he said. Inside the sack he found a tuna sandwich. ‘It wasn’t poison, I just ate it.’ Read more.
