Victory for Nevada Cattle Rancher Cliven Bundy … BLM Blinks in Confrontation Over the Removal of Rancher’s Cattle From Federal Land, Government Claimed They were Grazing Illegally

 

The Bureau of land Management is pulling out, victory for Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy.

The Feds and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have blinked in their Gestapo tactics of governmental overreach in the confrontation with Nevada cattle rancher Clive Bundy. No matter what side of the argument you fall on with regards to this situation, one thing is for certain, this was a complete over-reaction on the part of the Obama administration in creating this type of hostile, overreach and volatile situation. After a week-long standoff between the Feds and the cattle rancher and his supporters, the BLM has done a 180 most likely because there has been too much media reporting of the Fed’s tyrannical nad police state actions.  BLM Director Neil Kornze stated, “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.” More like, the memo came from on high, the Obama presidency cannot withstand a WACO.

However, the Bureau of Land Management vowed Saturday that it would continue its legal fight to remove illegal cattle from a rural Nevada range. This is code for the Fed’s in Washington DC will pull every stunt, behind the scenes, to make this man’s life miserable and put him out of business as he dared make them look bad in public.

ABC News: Nevada Cattle Rancher Wins ‘Range War’ With Feds.

 A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters.

Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally.

Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a “range war” against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of his sons was arrested while protesting the removal of the cattle.

“I have no contract with the United States government,” Bundy said. “I was paying grazing fees for management and that’s what BLM was supposed to be, land managers and they were managing my ranch out of business, so I refused to pay.”

The federal government had countered that Bundy “owes the American people in excess of $1 million ” in unpaid grazing fees and “refuses to abide by the law of land, despite many opportunities over the last 20 years to do so.”

However, today the BLM said it would not enforce a court order to remove the cattle and was pulling out of the area.

“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,” BLM Director Neil Kornze said.

“We ask that all parties in the area remain peaceful and law-abiding as the Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service work to end the operation in an orderly manner,” he said.

Take a good look America at to how the Federal government is treating legal Americans. Attack dogs and tasering Americans, UNREAL. Remember when this used to be the United States of America, not a tyrannical police state? The Obama government does not do this to illegal aliens who come into America illegally, but they had no problem treating legal Americans this way.

UPDATE I: BLM return cattle back to Bundy’s. Iin the end, this was all for nothing.

A deal has been reached between Bundy family leaders and the Bureau of Land Management, but not without some very tense moments.

Armed Bundy family leaders met with BLM officers Saturday afternoon in Mesquite to discuss the fate of the Bundy’s cattle that the feds removed from BLM land, over the past week.

Under the deal the cattle were released from a holding area near Mesquite, back onto the federal lands they were removed from.

However, according to the BLM, the deal does not absolve Bundy from any of the fees he owes for having the animals there in the first place.

Rancher Cliven Bundy is not describing it as a deal, but as the American citizens taking back the cattle.

“There is no deal here. The citizens of America and Clark County went and took their cattle. There was no negotiations. They took these cattle. They are in possession of these cattle and I expect them to come home soon,” Bundy said.

      There is a lot of behind the scenes stuff associated with this story. It will probably take Months and years to get the truth.

      The federal authorities found out that they have provoked the people to the point of rebellion. If the feds want a war, they nearly started one.

      Bill Clinton had his Waco and Ruby Ridge where he attacked the people. And now we have the Gold Bute situation created by Harry Reid and Obama over a supposed habitat of a toad. That is pure BS. The real deal is likely to be the Chinese company and the land needed to built a solar power station all promoted by Reid.

      This might be the beginning of the 2nd American Revolution.

      it is beginning folks. 0bama denied 1st Amendment rights to the press in Austin, Tx. last week and allowed pro amnesty protestors to march close to
      the location while the press was made to stand 2 blocks away.
      as for Harry Reid’s attempted power land grab, WE THE PEOPLE put an end to this commie politician’s hope of allowing the chinese to grab our public lands. and of course, our firearm rights allowed the citizens to protect the Bundy family after they were assaulted by the Obama government.

      Harry Reid is behind this. Government overstepping its authority and lawenforcement breaking the law following criminal orders. Who were the law officers out there? Were the sworn officers??? Borders not secured but attacking ranchers. Its insaine. Repeal the 16th ammendment and 2 year term limits. Hold lawmakers and judges under the same and ALL laws the average American is held too. Lets get back to Voteing with the PAPER BALLOT.

      The word is that Harry Reid’s son had a deal with China to install solar panels on the area where Mr. Bundy was grazing his cattle. It had nothing to do with the desert tortoise because BLM has scheduled to euthanize 1,000 of them at it’s sanctuary.
      I don’t think the safety of the public had anything to do with it. I think it was in consultation with Harry Reid that the gov backed off. I also think they will be back.
      And since when is it legal for a government agency such as the BLM to have it’s own militia?
      This stuff is scarey.

      I see all the “infowars” crazies have come out of the woodwork. Haha.

      Cliven Bundy and his supporters are very lucky the federal government isn’t made up of the evil, jackbooted thugs of you folk’s fevered fantasies.

      #1 – nearly started a war? 30 or so cosplay cowboys purposely putting their women and children in the front just in case the Feds fired so the women and children could be killed first. You people sound just like radical Muslims. You and their ilk are sick pu$$ys. Hiding behind women and children….WTF would you people defend that? ‘Cause Hannity told you too? Haha.

      Let me guess, you folks were PRAYING a woman or child was shot so they could be a martyr. You would’ve been overjoyed had that happened.

      I hope the Feds get MY money back from this Bundy wack job.
