Militia Arrives at Bundy Ranch.

"It is not about turtles it is about water. There are developers working for military contractors that want that land and water for mining weapons grade minerals for industry... they want to sell the land by the highway for real estate development because it's close to I-15 and the Bundy's have been refusing to sell what they actually own directly for over 20 years. Many buyers sent me out there with crazy offers for that land for many years. It is prime real estate not worthless desert. There is a natural gas pipeline going through there and lots of water under ground too. Somebody connected to a military corporation is using political power and the BLM to muscle those people out."

Property rights,rights of free speech, rights of Humans to live and prosper....all under the wheels of government tanks?

All this supposedly over the endangered desert tortise.

I claim BS. Here is the true story on how the Feds feel about the little turtle.
Federal Government Plans To Kill Hundreds Of Desert Tortoises To Save $1 Million A Year | JONATHAN TURLEY

Windmills kill raptor birds, that's OK
Solar farms ruin thousands of squaremiles of fragile habitat, that's OK.
Cows endanger turtiles no differently than indgineous mammals. That's not OK

This is a land grab, plain and simple. The Constitution under the tank treads by this President. Please excuse that I do not like him for it.

Is that racial?

From the article viewable at Indago's link in the previous post.

Quote:
The BLM asserts their power through the expressed desire to protect the endangered desert tortoise, a tortoise so “endangered” that their population can no longer be contained by the refuge constructed for them so the government is closing it and euthanizing over a thousand tortoises.
Quote:
A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

I'm still pretty skeptical that obama was even aware, much less responsible.

Not surprising, Harry Reid is the biggest crook in Nevada.

Oh guys, this is a HUGE deal here, HUGE!

And the absolute FRINGE, whacko Leftists are out in Full Force,
they actually want the BLM Rangers to shoot, kill and exterminate ALL the Bundy's.

Check out LVRJ.com (las vegas review journal) front page news all week.

I want to go up there SO bad I can taste it but I want my brother to go with me and he is on vacation until next Thursday. I am actually paranoid to go up there with just my 90-year old Mother (who also is hot to go).
BLM Rangers are bringing in Back Hoes, I wonder why.

He doesn't have 900 head, maybe 500.

BLM Rangers are armed with Assault Rifles, you know the kind they don't want us to have.

This whole thing smells of Harry Reid.

Probably not. He likely doesn't watch any news that would speak of this event.

As usual he didn't see, hear or speak about any of the things for which his executive branch is supposed to be aware. He's too busy raising money and flirting with the gals on The View.

Militias head to Nevada rancher’s standoff with feds: We’re not ‘afraid to shoot’

Quote:
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s decades-long battle against the federal government over grazing rights has heated to the point where militia groups have joined in and taken up spots against the feds who’ve circled his land — and talk is, they’re not afraid to open fire.

A spokesman for the one of the militia groups said as much to local 8 News Now: I’m not “afraid to shoot,” he said.

Margaret Houston, Mr. Bundy’s sister and a cancer survivor, said at a town hall gathering this week that the situation “was like a war zone” and that she felt “like I was not in the United States,” The Daily Mail reported
