    Militias ‘mobilizing’ to support embattled Clark County rancher in clash with FedGov

    LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

    BUNKERVILLE — From near and wide, armed men are trickling toward Cliven Bundy’s ranch, where the rancher’s fight with the federal government has become a rallying cry for militia groups across the United States.

    On Wednesday, that dispute teetered at the edge of deadly conflict, when Cliven Bundy’s family members and supporters scuffled with rangers from the Bureau of Land Management sent to protect the federal roundup of Bundy’s cattle on public land.

    One of Bundy’s seven sons was shot with a stun gun, and Bundy’s sister was knocked to the ground; but no one was seriously hurt, and no arrests were made.

    By late Wednesday, three militia members — two from Montana and one from Utah — had arrived at the ranch 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Other militia groups have inundated the Bundy household with calls and pledges to muster at the site. Their stated goal: to protect the Bundys from tyranny.

    3? That's not much of a muster.

    Here's an opportunity for them to actually muster a force and make a statement if they really wanted to.

    Militias are self funded. They don't steal innocent peoples money to fund their own armed gang like police do.

    Militias don't have qualified immunity and indemnification.

    Cut them some slack Primus.

    Another chapter of history is being written, the Bunkerville Range War. Nothing new.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Range_wars

    " Range wars continue, just as they did a century ago, between those who have grazing rights and those who do not. Today these range wars pit ranchers, with state grazing leases, against the environmental groups that are trying to restore the grazing lease areas to a healthy and pristine land. The weapons have changed from the cold steel of a gun to the amount of cold hard cash a rancher or an environmental group will pay for a piece of land." http://www.cnr.uidaho.edu/range456/h...range-wars.htm
    Bureau of Land Management policy changes and impacts: "The mustangs' current troubles come thanks in part to another Western icon: cattle ranchers. There are currently 37,000 mustangs sharing public rangelands with several million head of cattle. The result has been overgrazing, exacerbated by six years of drought. To restore the land, the BLM has cut the number of cattle allowed, and ranchers say the horses and burros have to be pared substantially. "If we don't receive relief, and soon, we'll be out of business," Lemoille, Nev., rancher Kenneth Jones" http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6884764/site/newsweek/

    Cell Phone Towers Possibly Shut Down

    It is also being reported cell phone reception dropped off earlier this afternoon in the areas where the protesting was held. It is speculated, (only speculated) that the cell towers were deliberately shut down.

    Primus won't respond now. His buds in the BLM got their @$$es sent packing, so he can't come here and gloat (yet) about the gang in badges beating down or killing citizens. Never fear primus, your pals will do their worst to see that the rejection they suffered will be avenged. You know -most folks don't understand that LE only makes up less than 2% of the population in the USA. This means for everyone of "them", there's over a 1,000 of "us".

    Something those in LE should carefully consider before they get giddy about hurting citizens. A "smart" person in LE would keep that thought at the front of their mind, one would think? Something tells me this thought has never crossed primus's mind.

    Gentlemen, if you please.

    Oversized pics and personal attacks back and forth - this is not going to be a dual purpose thread.

    Correct an opinion with facts, but leave the personal element out of it.

    UPDATE! KRNV TV-4. Sen. Reid on Cattle Battle: "It's not over"

    Published: 12:16 pm PDT

    "Reid tells News4's Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. "Well, it's not over. We can't have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it's not over," Reid said. "

    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Seeing reports that this whole thing is because the esteemed Reid ( and family) stands to profit from a Solar power plant deal once BLM gets all land.

    THIS! The people did not cower and run away as expected. There are reports also that the new director of the BLM is a long time aid/friend to Reid, if true - it makes sense that he would approve these aggressive tactics after only holding the post for a few days. There is much at play here and I think we are only now starting to see what the true motives are, at least from the government side.
