Armed Fed Agents and Snipers? Nevada Rancher Is Taking on the Gov’t in a Battle That’s Reaching a Breaking Point
Armed federal agents deployed last week to northeast Clark County, Nev., for what can only be described as a major escalation in a decades-long standoff between a local cattle rancher and the U.S. government.
Cliven Bundy, the last remaining rancher in the southern Nevada county, stands in defiance of a 2013 court order demanding that he remove his cattle from public land managed by the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management.
The 67-year-old veteran rancher, who has compared the situation to similar confrontations with government officials in Ruby Ridge and Waco, Texas, told TheBlaze that his family has used land in the 600,000-acre Gold Butte area since the late 1800s.
“I have raised cattle on that land, which is public land for the people of Clark County, all my life. Why I raise cattle there and why I can raise cattle there is because I have preemptive rights,” he said, explaining that among them is the right to forage.
Nevada Governor Demands Removal of “First Amendment Zones”
Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has gone on the record regarding the BLM taking over portions of his state, and their implementation of unconstitutional “free-speech zones” in areas adjacent to the active confiscation of Bundy cattle near Bunkerville, NV.
Sandoval said, “Due to the roundup by the BLM, my office has received numerous complaints of BLM conduct, road closures and other disturbances. I have recently met with state legislators, county officials and concerned citizens to listen to their concerns.”
There's a lot more out there. Post it up as you find it. While I don't think this is "it", any more so than a couple other current events, it IS one more piece of evidence of how close we really are to the shit hitting the fan.
