Many of Cliven Bundy's cattle were killed... Harry Reid and his cronies will allow people, animals and babies to die, as long as their agenda is priority
In the wake of the sudden turn of events at the Bundy Ranch last Saturday, there's been lots of speculation as to why the events occurred, as they did. Firstly, I must dismiss many of the kooks that spewed globs of misinformation. I won't point fingers or name names, During the past week, I've done some extensive research, as did many others.
Although I have not found specific links for all I'm about to reveal, I did come across some interesting details and information that I've furnished, below. The government thinks they might like to see Cliven Bundy in court. They might not want to be so hasty. Hopefully, the Bundy Ranch will retain competent legal counsel.
It would appear the B.L.M. did not have the legal right to remove Cliven Bundy's cattle, even with the federal court order. Rule 64 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure states that any seizure of a person or property must be done in accordance with STATE law, where the court of decision is located. Meanwhile, Rule 70 provides that the party who won the judgment (that's the BLM) must have the clerk (of the court) issue a writ of execution or assistance. The writ is then executed and perfected by the Sheriff (Sheriff Gillespie), who would seize the cattle in accordance with the provisions outlined in Nevada's Law.
Nevada Law requires that the State Brandmaster or his appointee from the State Board of Agriculture be present to account for the seized animals, upon which the Department of Agriculture will take possession of the animals and deliver them to the party of judgment or their appointed agent. Now that's the law on livestock seizures that would apply in this case. As you probably already know, the B.L.M. didn't do this. They obtained a court order, skipped the court clerk, skipped the writ, skipped the Sheriff and also skipped the State Brandmaster and his department, and went straight to seizing Bundy's cattle by force.

Cattle battle not over: ‘We don’t fear Harry Reid,’ say Bundy brothers
Reid had been silent on standoff between the Bureau of Land Management and rancher Cliven Bundy, who was accused of allowing his “trespass cattle” to graze on lands the government said was off limits. But when the bureau backed down Sunday, Reid let his lips flap. Full Article
Under Nevada Law, the B.L.M. clearly engaged in a form of cattle rustling. B.L.M. also violated state and federal laws which were designed to protect Bundy's right to due process, under the law. They also did so bearing assault weapons, attack dogs and engaged in use of intimidation, as well as physical force in light of Cliven Bundy's insistence that their activity was unlawful. It is important to realize how very serious this situation is in that 18 USC 241 defines "Conspiracy Against Rights" as two or more persons who conspire to intimidate, oppress, threaten or injure any person for expressing or enjoying any rights or privileges secured by the U.S. Constitution. This is a felony and can result in ten years in federal prison. More
Bundy Ranch - What You're Not Being Told
Take another look at what happened on that ranch, the military style crack down, the violence. Imagine Clive Bundy was your father or grandfather. Imagine if his wife was your mother or grandmother. Imagine it was your family who's livelihood was being destroyed by some filthy rich politician who just can't get enough. Full Article
It is quite clear that when B.L.M. failed to adhere to Rules 64 and 70 of the FRCP, that they began unlawfully seizing Bundy's property, destroyed some of his property (B.L.M. admits to killing two bulls) and it is also believed that B.L.M. used a backhoe to destroy Bundy's range improvements (which are his property, even if the land is not). In doing so, they clearly violated his right to due process. It's also clear that when Bundy launched a resistance, that B.L.M. also attempted to intimidate, oppress and threaten him and others by deploying a wide range of tactics. Related
Several persons were injured, as is confirmed by video footage. All of the elements are there to successfully prosecute an unknown number of B.L.M. employees and contractors under 18 USC 241. That is quite a serious thing and if there is anything remotely resembling justice left in this country, I think we'll see serious repercussions for those involved in this. There are also harsh penalties under title 18 USC for "color of law" violations. Of course, our courts are so corrupt, justice will likely never be served. 18 USC 241 The Truth Video
Sheriff Richard Mack: Sources Inside BLM and Vegas Metro Say “No Question” Feds are Preparing to Raid Cliven Bundy
According to Mack, the so-called retreat was nothing more than theatrics. “It was a ploy to get people to back off, to get people out of the way. They weren’t expecting us to get this amount of people here. They were surprised by the numbers and so they wanted a way to get us out of here. Full Article
Although (former) Sheriff Mack might have been a popular Constitutional sheriff, he is not the best liar. According to the Bundy family, Mack has been less than honest about events at the ranch. As a mouthpiece with an agenda, I will not be so quick to believe his words, anymore. Facebook Human Shields Link Thanks to all the “spin,” who isn't lying, may be a better question. More After some delay, Richard Mack came clean, regarding his previous statements.
Our nation's legal system is nothing to be proud of anymore, and certainly is not an example of any integrity when taken as a whole. It is contradictory, serves not the people, only the interests that have power through money.

A battle has been temporarily won, but the government's war on the American farmer & rancher is far from being over... The next round is just over the horizon
Friday, April 11, 2014: Our team spent the entire day (from sun up to sun down) performing tasks that the BLM should have been doing. Instead of rustling cattle, tazing an old white man and pushing an old woman to the ground at the Bundy Ranch, they should have been working to protect our public land from the scourge of drug and human smuggling. Why doesn't the BLM deploy hundreds of armed goons, snipers and helicopters to take on the drug cartels in the Sonoran Desert National Monument?
The BLM land, immediately west of my home and neighborhood have been destroyed by Mexicans. Rarely, do I see BLM rangers on patrol or doing anything to curb the devastation of the Sonoran Desert. On Friday, our team took to the high ground and "decommissioned" multiple narco spotter positions. These LP/OP's are the key to the smuggling trade, as they are the ones that "direct traffic" and keep the drugs flowing. Most of these positions are on top of hills or far from roads. As a result, law enforcement rarely sees them, because they don't like to get out of their trucks.
On every rancher's grazing permit it says the following: "You are authorized to make grazing use of the lands, under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management and covered by this grazing permit, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this grazing permit and payment of grazing fees when due."
Federal agents back down in stand-off with armed cowboys: BLM release cattle after they were surrounded by militia following agreement to stop targeting rancher in modern-day 'range war'
In an embarrassing climbdown, the Bureau of Land Management retreated from its high profile standoff with Bundy and his rag-tag bunch of anti-federalists after the BLM attempted to forcibly capture nearly 1,000 of his cattle. Full Article
Cliven Bundy was one of these people who received extremely unfair and unreasonable "terms and conditions." Keep in mind that Mr. Bundy was required to sign this contract before he was allowed to pay. Had Clive signed on the dotted line, he would have, in essence, signed his very livelihood away. And so Mr. Bundy took a stand, not only for himself, but for all of us.
Ranchers, throughout the course of a hundred years, invested thousands (and perhaps millions) of dollars and sacrificed along the way to obtain these rights through purchase from others. At a whim, the government can take everything away with the stroke of a pen. This is the very thing that Clive Bundy took a stand against.

"The dispute is over, the BLM is leaving, but emotions and tensions are still near the boiling point, and we desperately need a peaceful conclusion to this conflict," U.S. Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., said in a statement. "I urge all the people involved to please return to your homes and allow the BLM officers to collect their equipment and depart without interference." CBS News
The media has portrayed public land as owned by the government and we, the people, are simply intruders, given a limited privilege of usage. It is our land and the different government agencies are simply hired to care for the land, not dictate how we use it, how we are charged for it and how they can control us. The real problem is not who the employees of these agencies are, but, instead, our elected representatives who allow (while profiting) the over intrusive government to treat us as intruders of the “King's land.”
A Victory in the First Battle of What Will be a Long War
The BLM could easily show up again tomorrow, next week, or next month. They’ve already spent millions of taxpayer dollars in their crusade against Cliven Bundy. At some point when the crowds disperse and the television lights go dark, the BLM may very well return, with their guns, their helicopters, and their shiny white SUVs. Full Article
The Feds will be back. For a while, they'll let the protestors believe they are going to get their way, but came back on a cold night with batons and bulldozers and started cracking skulls. Things will not change, until we quit believing that a two party system is really a choice. It isn't. They both work for the kings of elitist and they get paid far too well to change. We need an alternative elective group that will make it their priority to rid us of an over bloated government.
