~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
The first Bundy trial has ended in a mistrial after finding a federal informant guilty of eight charges and one of the defendants guilty of two lesser charges. The jury was hopelessly deadlocked on sixty more charges, even after federal judge Gloria Navarro sent the jury back to deliberate further….
Todd Engel was found guilty on two charges; obstruction of justice, and interstate travel to aid extortion. Greg Burleson, a fellow defendant also revealed to have been working for the federal government as an informant throughout the events at Bundy Ranch, was found guilty on eight charges. According to Maxine Bernstein of OregonLive.com and Jenny Wilson of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the jury was “hopelessly deadlocked” on all other charges […]
As Americans were preparing for Independence Day festivities, Nevada Sheriff Doug Gillespie late Thursday broke the news that in his view, rancher Cliven Bundy (above) “must be held accountable” for his alleged role in the Bundy Ranch Standoff.
The Nevada sheriff put it on record that he strongly disapproved of the Americans, many of whom are Oath Keepers converged upon the Bundy Ranch successfully thwarting the federal government’s efforts to confiscate Bundy’s land and feels that Bundy should “be held accountable” as a result.
While not demanding accountability of the Bureau of Land Management in its handling leading up to and during the Bundy Ranch Standoff, Gillespie stated that BLM “must reconsider its methods in order to prevent the bloodshed.”
Of course, who really stepped over the line continues to be a matter of opinion.
Thursday’s remarks by Gillespie segued to BLM announcing Saturday their agreement with the Nevada Sheriff that Cliven Bundy “must be held accountable’ while dismissing any blame for their role in the standoff and the mishandling of Bundy’s cattle.
‘…It is unfortunate that the sheriff is now attempting to rewrite the details of what occurred, including his claims that the BLM did not share accurate information,” she said. “The sheriff encouraged the operation and promised to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us as we enforced two recent federal court orders….’
Rest assured that the timing of this news breaking while Americans are distracted with Independence Day festivities is no coincidence and now that it is on record that Cliven Bundy must be held accountable for his alleged actions, to give BLM cover for whatever comes next, we can expect Harry Reid’s brown shirts to make their move any day now. H/t The Blaze.
The Obama administration is seeking retribution against supporters of Cliven Bundy many of whom first converged upon Bunkerville, Nevada weeks ago to support and protect the Bundy family and ranch from Harry Reid’s land grab and BLM thugs.
Under the impression that Cliven Bundy has been discredited and alienated, the FBI is now tasked with targetingbuilding a case against targeting patriots (sound familiar?) solely for the purpose of criminalizing and extracting them from the Bundy Ranch.
Doing so would provide a pathway for BLM thugs to complete the tasks of relieving Cliven Bundy of his property.
Translation: Patriots such as the Oath Keepers who continue to protect the Bundy Ranch and family have now been ordained a threat solely because they stand between the despot, Barack Obama and his repressive regime.
…The I-Team has confirmed that FBI agents have launched a formal investigation into alleged death threats, intimidation and possible weapons violations that culminated with a dangerous showdown on April 12, and the first people to be interviewed by FBI agents are Metro Police, starting with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillispie….
Last week, the I-Team talked with Metro officers who intervened to protect the lives of federal employees from the 400 or so Bundy supporters and armed militia members. Officers told the I-Team they feared for their lives that day because of the assembled firepower, and because many in the crowd had pointed weapons at officers, taunted them, told them they should be ready to die….
If the FBI were really doing its job, they would detain Barack Obama, Harry Reid, BLM thugs and Nevada Congressman Steven Horsford who called in the feds to extract Bundy supporters from the Bundy Ranch and surrounding area.
Silence is consent. Wake up America, especially those of you who support assaults on Americans by the Obama Mafia.
Supporting or remaining silent as a despotic regime and their army of thugs continue land grabs, targeting and destroying the lives of Americans, rest assured that before long, one day the door they kick in may be yours.
Cowboy, patriot Levoy Finicum, debunks the myths and lies from the mainstream and allegedly Conservative media/pundits including that of Glenn Beck whom we have noticed these past few weeks have been anti-Bundy to the point that many suspect (present company included Beck of colluding with the enemy.
Patriot Finicum does a great job of setting the record straight. Not good though for Beck and a few others whom we have suspected all along of pushing a nefarious agenda. Beck, in particular has been protesting a little too darn much. Clearly, OD’ing on his own kool-aid, the narcissist like the rest of the elites underestimates the intelligence of the American people.
Many Black Americans Come Out In Defense Of Cliven Bundy As Whites Duck & Cover
This black American man (Bundy bodyguard) says Bundy is not a racist and would take a bullet for him:
‘Mr. Bundy is not a racist,’ he told CNN. ‘Ever since I’ve been here, he’s treated me with nothing but hospitality. He’s pretty much treating me just like his own family.’ ‘I would take a bullet for that man if need be. I look up to him just like I do my own grandfather,’ he added. ‘I believe in his cause and after having met Mr. Bundy a few times….
The media distorts information to the point of social division. This is a photo of myself and the resilient, often charismatic, and maybe not so tactful Cliven Bundy. He’s a cowboy and a helluva family man, not an orator. One thing he definitely isn’t – a racist. I found his comments to not only be NOT racist, but his own view of his experiences. Who the heck are we to determine another man’s perspective on the world around him?
…The way the left slings around the race card has a specific purpose. It shuts down debate. It takes focus off the awful “recovery.” It buys time for more stories about the wonders of Obamacare. More importantly, it keeps the 95 percent black Democratic vote flowing — without which the Democrats cannot win at the presidential level.
Why can’t conservatives who ‘support Bundy’ say: ‘Even if I conceded his remarks were ‘racist,’ it nothing to do with his land dispute. Again, Bundy described the unintended consequences of government dependency. He described what sociologists call the underclass. Didn’t the liberal Daniel Patrick Moynihan warn about the rise in single-parent households? If Bundy truly ‘hated’ blacks he would be encouraging this very dependency…’
…But right on cue Sean Hannity denounced Bundy’s remarks: ‘His comments are beyond repugnant to me. They are beyond despicable to me. They are beyond ignorant to me….People that, for the right reasons, saw this case as government overreach — now are like, branded because of the ignorant, racist, repugnant, despicable comments of Cliven Bundy!’ Oh, please.
Racism. Racism. Racism. Water’s wet, sky’s blue, the media love outing white “bigots” — especially if they are male, old, Republican, Christian and — ideally — Southern. Even a Southerner who votes Democratic, like Paula Deen, will do nicely….
Black Conservatives speaking up for Cliven Bundy when the usual suspects and even some of those tough talking Conservatives who apparently do suffer from an extreme case of which guilt are running for the nearest exits. God bless America….and honesty!!!!
