Cliven Bundy cattle ranch dispute in the US state of Nevada

By going over the facts, I will present to you not only the situation surrounding this escalating dispute between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service and the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada, but I will also go over a webbot IDIR March 2013 prediction that matches right up to this event.

The prediction from the webbot accurately portrays the situation surrounding this and also the timing becomes accurate when adding on a year, as per my theory discussed around time manipulation in my article, 'The Stretching of Time and the Imminent Shift'.


The US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to have Bundy’s nearly 1,000 head of cattle removed from the 600,000 acres of public land. They have plans to auction off the cattle after doing so. Right now it's estimated that there are over 200 armed Bureau of Land Management employees and FBI surrounding Cliven Bundy's property and this land in question.

Part of the situation behind the court order seems to involve BLM designating 186,909 acres of the Gold Butte area back in 1993, near where the Bundy ranch is, as “critical” for the survival of the desert tortoise population and this is meant to be part of the reason the federal agents have moved in. Cliven Bundy has also refused to pay additional taxes as a result of this decision back then. It is said the taxes owed by Cliven Bundy to BLM is over a million in US dollars based upon grazing fees, but also trespassing fees.

Cliven Bundy has stated that his family has worked the land in question, since the 1860's before the BLM was even formed. Based upon information from Cliven Bundy's daughter, originally the rights to work the Bunkerville allotment were purchased by Cliven Bundy's granddad back in 1887. Cliven's granddad sold the rights to Cliven's dad, and in 1972 the rights were passed onto Cliven Bundy himself. The agreement in place also included the rights to built in water systems, fences and roads to assure the survival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars.

The US Bureau of Land Management is meant to be only managing these 600,000 acres in Nevada, they do not own the land. The Bundy family have explained that BLM stopped managing the land and were not using the taxes that Cliven Bundy was originally paying for the management of it and this is also part of the reason he decided to stop paying the taxes.

In 1998 the US Bureau of Land Management revoked Cliven Bundy's right to use the land for his cattle to graze upon. In the same year, a US federal judge issued an injunction for Cliven Bundy to remove the cattle from the land. Last year the same judge authorised BLM to impound the cattle and over the past weekend the impoundments began.

Cliven Bundy says that this land in question is public and that it belongs to the Clark County in Nevada. The facts are also showing that the rights to work the land were purchased back in 1887 by the Bundy family and that they do in fact own these rights to keep on using the land for that exact purpose.

One very important fact here is that the US Bureau of Land Management did approach Cliven Bundy to try and buy the land usage rights, the original rights that were purchased back in 1887 by the Bundy family to use the land to graze their cattle upon and to also improve the land. Cliven Bundy refused to sell his rights to the BLM.

In an interview with Fox news, Cliven Bundy said the following.

"...what they have done is that they have seized Nevada statehood, Nevada law. Clark County public lands, access to their land. They have seized access to all the other rights of Clark County people, that like to go hunting and fishing. They have closed all those things down and we're here to protest that action. We are after freedom, we are after liberty."

In response to a question by Fox News asking how far is Cliven willing to take this, Cliven Bundy replied with, "My statement to the American people is that I will do whatever it takes to gain our liberty and freedom back."

Its been reported that the technology and weaponry in use by the BLM and the FBI include infra-red detectors, motion detectors, AR based automatic weapons, and sniper rifles. Helicopters are said to be circling the area and there has been one sighting of an Apache helicopter. Nearby roads remain off limits based upon no go zones by the BLM and FBI. The situation in general is sounding like an undeclared state of martial law.

Cliven Bundy has asked the local Sheriff for help but it has been reported that the local Sheriff, Douglas Gillespi, is refusing to stand up for the constitutional rights of Cliven Bundy. If Douglas Gillespi asked the Bureau of Land Management to leave, then they would have to leave under the law of the state.

Below is a video that I found rather shocking because of the emotion and intensity involved with those trying to do what they think is the right thing here and stand up to support Cliven Bundy. The actual situation occurring was also yesterday I believe. A statement was made about the incident below by the Bundy's as quoted from this facebook page.

"While exercising our 1st Amendment Rights today three of our family members where attacked by the BLM, Our aunt a, 58 year old woman who was thrown to the ground. Ammon went to help aunt Margaret and was tazed three times. One in the neck, one in the arm, and one in the heart. While Pulling tazers off of Ammon, Tyler was side swiped by a BLM truck. The BLM were the threat with there guns, tazers, and attack dogs. We were unarmed protesting on the side of the road as they drove by but they decided to get out of the trucks to show they have power over us. They could have easily drove right on by us but they did not. They ended up getting in there trucks and leaving with out leaving any citations. This is the correct story. " - BUNDY RANCH


The federal agents have setup signs on the side of the roads there which say you will go to federal prison if you step off of the state roads, in specific areas nearby the property of the Bundy ranch in Nevada.

The federal agents compromising of the BLM and FBI have setup free speech zones which have also been labelled 'First Amendment Areas', for locals and others who have decided to come along to provide support through possible demonstrations and protests. Mr. Bundy has publicly asked for help from Americans and from the information being presented, it does look like numbers on the ground will help the situation for those wanting to support Cliven Bundy.

Wayne price, owner of property in Catron County left this comment on the Bundy's blog yesterday. As you can see going by the contents of this advice from Wayne price, and the number of people showing up nearby the Bundy property, that the public is supporting this situation strongly.

Dear Mr. Bundy,
My name is Wayne Price, we own property in Catron County, NM and of course the folks have been fighting for over 20 years on this same underlying issue.
Please note, I saw where Col Westgate contacted you and understand your decision to hold off on the Minutemen offer. We understand you need boots on the ground and we will do everything we can to bring people to the area.
I have been in touch with Bucky Allred, Catron County Commissioner and he has been trying to call you to offer some ideas on how to stage your efforts.
Here are some ideas to consider; File an injunction in Federal Court to stop the Helicopter use since they are violating FAA low-level flight rules. Make them obtain an area safety plan and issue an approved NOTM, this will stop the round-ups, temporary to give us time to build our forces.
File an injunction in both State and Federal court to stop the round up, until they have an approved plan to show how they are protecting the endangered species during these activities.
File an Injunction in State/Federal court to make them show that they are treating the animals in a manner that prevents harm. We know they are not.
File a lawsuit and injunction to stop the action, until they have a plan approved by the county residents on their activities.
Remember, those cattle trucks have to have gas, tires, drivers, and travel down a certain road. Civil dissidence is part of our civil rights, block the roads. They do not own or control the roads, nor do they own the airport, that's county property, have them evicted, this way you force the county and state to act.
Those helicopters has to be parked somewhere, gassed up, need pilots, all of these can be impacted on every level, without breaking any federal law.
The BLM officers have to live in the community. Find out where they live, and go talk to their families.
File a restraining order against the snipers who point weapons at you, that's against the law. File charges in the county and have deputies arrest them. If the county doesn't act, then they have violated your civil rights and you can sue them.
And by doing all of this, you will have the biggest lawsuit in the history of the USA.
We will come in about two weeks to relieve the other folks, this is a long struggle and we the people can wear out the opposition. Their resources are limited.
We also need to set up a relief fund. God Bless you, keep up the fight, if you fail, we are all doomed, and no public land will be safe and secure for our use.
This is Obama's Agenda 21.

Nevada Governer Brian Sandoval, a former state attorney general and federal district court judge, is quoted as saying, “Most disturbing to me is the BLM’s establishment of a ‘First Amendment Area’ that tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the US Constitution,” in a statement on Tuesday. “To that end, I have advised the BLM that such conduct is offensive to me and countless others and that the ‘First Amendment Area’ should be dismantled immediately,” he said. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists or the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans. The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”

Since Monday in the US, the government agents and their contractors which include hired cowboys, have seized around 234 of the 908 cattle belonging to Cliven Bundy. The removal will cost the federal government as much as US$3 million, the Free Beacon reported.

Fox news has interviewed Cliven Bundy below on the 9th of April discussing the situation. (6 minutes)



I’m a producer,” Cliven said. “I produce edible commodity from the desert forage, and all of these things are governed under state law. So, in other words, this type of government has eliminated all of our state law, eliminated our state sovereignty, and has took control over our public lands and even took control over our Clark County sheriff. They’ve taken the whole county over. The whole state, almost.

Shiree Bundy Cox, Cliven Bundy's daugher has provided this information through a comment on YouTube, which adds a fuller explanation surrounding the history of the situation occuring at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada.

"I have had people ask me to explain my dad's stance on this BLM fight. Here it is in as simple of terms as I can explain it. There is so much to it, but here it s in a nut shell.
My great grandpa bought the rights to the Bunkerville allotment back in 1887 around there. Then he sold them to my grandpa who then turned them over to my dad in 1972. These men bought and paid for their rights to the range and also built waters, fences and roads to assure the servival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars. These rights to the land use is called preemptive rights. Some where down the line, to keep the cows from over grazing, came the bureau of land management.
They were supposed to assist the ranchers in the management of their ranges while the ranchers paid a yearly allotment which was to be use to pay the BLM wages and to help with repaires and improvements of the ranches. My dad did pay his grazing fees for years to the BLM until they were no longer using his fees to help him and to improve. Instead they began using these money's against the ranchers. They bought all the rest of the ranchers in the area out with they're own grazing fees. When they offered to buy my dad out for a penence he said no thanks and then fired them because they weren't doing their job. He quit paying the BLM but, tried giving his grazing fees to the county, which they turned down. So my dad just went on running his ranch and making his own improvements with his own equipment and his own money, not taxes. In essence the BLM was managing my dad out of business.
Well when buying him out didn't work, they used the indangered species card. You've already heard about the desert tortis. Well that didn't work either, so then began the threats and the court orders, which my dad has proven to be unlawful for all these years. Now their desperate. It's come down to buying the brand inspector off and threatening the County Sheriff. Everything their doing at this point is illegal and totally against the constitution of the United States of America. Now you may be saying," how sad, but what does this have to do with me?" Well, I'll tell you. They will get rid of Cliven Bundy, the last man standing on the Bunkerville allotment and then they will close all the roads so no one can ever go on it again. Next, it's Utah's turn. Mark my words, Utah is next. 
Then there's the issue of the cattle that are at this moment being stolen. See even if dad hasn't paid them, those cattle do belong to him. Regardless where they are they are my fathers property. His herd has been part of that range for over a hundred years, long before the BLM even exsisted. Now the Feds think they can just come in and remove them and sell them without a legal brand inspection or without my dad's signature on it. They think they can take them over two boarders, which is illegal, ask any trucker. Then they plan to take them to the Richfeild Aucion and sell them. All with our tax money. They have paid off the contract cowboys and the auction owner as well as the Nevada brand inspector with our tax dollars. See how slick they are?
Well, this is it in a nut shell. Thanks" - Shiree Bundy Cox

On Sunday, Dave Bundy, the son of rancher Cliven Bundy, was arrested while taking photographs of his family’s cattle that were being rounded up by federal agents. According to the report, Bundy was violating an arbitrary "First Amendment" zone that had been established by federal agents. Federal agents also deployed snipers against Dave Bundy.

He was doing nothing but standing there and filming the landscape,” Ryan Bundy said of his brother Dave. “We were on the state highway, not even off of the right-of-way. Even if they want to call [the area that we were filming] federal land; which it’s not; we weren’t even on it. We were on the road.

None of the family members on the road were armed, but 11 BLM vehicles each with two agents arrived and surrounded him as he began filming the cattle, Paul Joseph Watson said at Infowars. “They also had four snipers on the hill above us all trained on us. We were doing nothing besides filming the area,” Ryan added.

They were told at the time by Federal agents that none of them had any First Amendment rights, except in the areas that were marked which were the two fenced off areas near the City of Mesquite. They ordered the family members to leave immediately it was reported, but Bundy didn't seem to obey fast enough and was set on by agents.

He was filming and talking on the phone, I don’t know to whom,” Ryan said. “It happened pretty fast. They came down on him hard and had a German Shepherd on him. And then they took him.”

Paul Joseph Watsonwas quoted as saying,

"Some fear the dispute could turn into a Ruby Ridge-style violent standoff because Bundy has said he is prepared to become a martyr for what he perceives as a constitutional stance against tyranny."

You can find a 22 minute interview with Cliven Bundy's son here discussing what happened after DaveBundy was released from jail on April the 7th. As you can see, he has a huge mark on his face as a result of the initial arrest which I believe was the day before.


Another event relating to this whole situation was recorded on video and posted on YouTube yesterday. Cliven Bundy's friends and family including Jared Bundy, were checking on the status of the families cattle as the Federal officers were rounding them up.

Going by the information presented in the video and what occurs, the Bureau Of Land Management calls in reinforcements and tries to arrest Jared Bundy. More friends and family are called in to help and as you can see, this drives off the BLM Federal Agents as they start to leave eventually.


There is some good commentary while the twelve minute video is filmed, explaining the situation around what is going on. Towards the end of the video you can see the emotion coming through as the people strongly believe that what is going on is definitely not 'right'.

The Arizona state militia has been contacted regarding the situation and have issued this statement,
http://arizonastatemilitia.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/NevadaRelease.pdf. I will quote the part of the statement highlighted in red within the document,

"The molestation and trampling of our rights has gone on far too long, so take notice, the American people have had enough. I advise all that prefer to take an unconstitutional and lawless stance to dealing with the American people to consider this fact before acting, as “We the people” are getting restless"

CBS reports that militias from Texas, Montana, Utah, New Hampshire, and Florida will be standing with Bundy against the Bureau of Land Management. shtfplan.com have reported, 'Word on the street from sources close to the militia movement is that up to 5,000 armed militia members will be arriving in Bunkerville, Nevada sometime today.'

One of the latest posts on the Bundy's blog is titled, 'We got a call from Afghanistan!!' and goes on to stay,

"We love and Support our Troops!!! Thank you for the call from our troops over sea's today!! They don't seem to be to happy with what is going on in a country that they are fighting to keep FREE!!
Love you guys.
Thank you for your Sacrifice and Service.
We are both fighting a good fight.
Love,
The Bundy's
Help save America!!!
Stand for Liberty!!!"

Back on the topic of those desert tortoise's, back on the 6th of August 2013, the Russian Times reported that Federal funds for a Nevada based desert tortoise conservation center were running very low and that they had plans to euthanize hundreds of tortoises that were once classified as “endangered” and are currently considered “threatened.”

Image credit - Wikipedia

On the 28th of September 2012, The Las Vegas Review Journal ran a story titled 'Desert tortoise 'preservation' a waste of money'. The story covers a number of situations in relation to history of the desert tortoise's in the Nevada area. The theme of the story shows that the Federal government seemed to be implying that the tortoise's were becoming extinct, however, the actual facts of the situation showed that the opposite was happening. I quote from the article the following.

"Back in the 1990s, native Las Vegan Harry Pappas served on the Clark County Tortoise Advisory Council. "They said the tortoise was threatened, so they had to fence off these huge areas and shut out all the cattle, which means no one is out there shooting the coyotes and the raven anymore," Mr. Pappas recalled, back in 2001. "They said anyone who found a tortoise had to turn it in.
"So what happened? They got so overrun with tortoises being turned in that they told us they were going to have to start euthanizing them. I said 'Hold on a minute, here. Euthanize them? Why don't you just drop them out in the desert?' They said, 'Oh no, they'll fight with the native tortoises that already live out there and they'll kill each other, because all these lands are already at saturation levels.' I said, 'Which is it? How can they be 'threatened' or 'endangered' … but now you tell us all these lands are at 'saturation levels' for tortoises?""

Clliven Bundy is also mentioned in that same article. Another quote from the article is below in relation to that mention.

"Cliven Bundy, the last cattle rancher in Clark County, reports that when the Kern River natural gas pipeline came through, a federally mandated tortoise population study was conducted. They found several times more tortoises per acre on the lands where the Bundys have water lines and tanks for their cattle than they found in the dry desert - and literally 10 times the tortoise population density right here in the Las Vegas Valley."

Mike Adam's over at Natural News just posted this article on the 10th of April. It's titled 'BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed siege and cattle theft from Bundy ranch really about fracking leases'.

Mike Adam's discusses a number of situations which goes towards possible reasons around why the Federal Government has made this aggressive move against Cliven Bundy and his cattle. Mike explains that the BLM is known to lease their land to energy companies that engage in fracking operations. A quote from that article is below.

"This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870's. The "Gold Butte" area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see map), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there. 
What's also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself. It is, of course, customary for the U.S. government to bring armed soldiers to an oil dispute. (Operation "Iraqi Freedom" for starters...) Heavily armed snipers, helicopters and militarized soldiers have never been invoked over tortoises. (Anyone who thinks this siege is about reptiles is kidding themselves.) "

This dispute with BLM and Cliven Bundy is not an isolated incident. Another example is the situation surrounding the Red River in Texas and BLM trying to seize 90,000 acres of land there.

A quote from this article outlines the general situation going on between the borders of Oklahoma and Texas in relation to multiple ranches in that area.

"Byers, Texas along the Red River — The BLM stole 140 acres of the Tommy Henderson ranch thirty years ago. They took his land and paid him absolutely nothing. He sued and lost. Now the BLM is using that court case as precedent to do it again. The problem is, the land they want to seize is property that ranchers have a deed for and have paid taxes on for over a hundred years. 
The BLM claims that about 90,000 acres (116 miles along the Red River) have never belonged to Texas in the first place. They will seize the land and it will seriously change the boundaries between the two states. "

In conclusion to this whole situation surrounding the dispute between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the US Federal Government in general and Cliven Bundy's cattle ranch, I am here to state the facts, but while doing so I really connected into some of the people involved and I believe that I felt, from an empathic angle, what they are really fighting for, what this cause means to them and what is being done with their rights being taken away by the Federal Government.

This situation is not just about one man, Cliven Bundy and his cattle ranch, this situation is much greater and represents a much larger problem going on over there in those Unites States of America.

The Webbot prediction

Back in March, 2013, Clif High released his weekly audio report which he names 'IDIR', Immediacy Data Intelligence Report.  It included a lot of information that I believe relates to this situation with the Bundy ranch. These have since been made free to the public by Clif at http://www.halfpasthuman.com.

The purpose of posting this information is to show the accuracy of the webbot predictions in general which were part of the IDIR's back in 2013. This accuracy and the timing of seeing +1 year added to certain predictions which did not occur back then, goes towards future events occurring that were predicted within the IDIR's for the remaining months leading up to May/June. Please see my article,  'The Stretching of Time and the Imminent Shift' for more information on that.

Below are notes I have taken from the March 7th IDIR in relation to this exact situation. (spelling mistakes and mistakes in general are meant to be included)

(10 minutes in) A very large set formed. It's populace USA based. Clif finds it very interesting and its very large with many cross links. (this means that the situation is going to impact many other areas and the cross links lead to other predictions)
The descriptor is headed by 'states'. It's clearly north america but will have a huge impact on mexico as a result of the repercussions of the event.
'States behaving badly' is the general title that Clif labels it. States behave badly towards the feds but the populace does as well.
The perspective of this is about the TPTB and the minions. So its related to the Federal Government and the local state. 
The direction shows that the feds are going to get pissed at the minions (authorities) at a state level. It looks like this situation gets down to a personal level, such as a secretary of state getting annoyed at a Governor for example.
Clif says this is very complicated. 
The fedearal Governemnt is showing to be preparing for a civil war type situation, or at least a defenseive situation by the populace in question. The dates begin from about March 22-24th onwards. 
An uglyness is showing between the populace and the minion classes at a physical confrontation level. 
Reaction is unexpected by the feds, about how people react to the situation. They are surprised and unprepared for the level of the response from the public.
Clif decides not to name the locations of where its going to occur at the time but it sounds like he knows.
From the populace viewpoint, an indiviual is going to take a hit here and there is no way around it. The data shows the person will be martyred by federal government and this is going to piss people off.
Populace of the specific state in question will have a distinct concenses, the populace in genearl, that the fed gov is coercise and degenerative. Action is required as a result... lots of words showinga bout rashness of the federal govenrment. Unpexpected backlash from the populace, that the feds thought was just a no brainer. 
'Feds will be stung', 'swollen', 'damaged', 'injured' at a physical level. Data shows feds going into a situation, like walking into a strawberry field and slaughtering the sheep, then walking out but they are swarmed by a whole lot of bees. They are react physically because of the attacks and stings.. and also react emotionally from not being prepared. 
It looks like the situation gets to a stage where people start throwing actual bags or sacks of shit at the powers that be involved. 
Situation pushes people to the wall. They come out swinging. 
Clif at one point pauses the recording, as he has to think about a situation relating to the data on the screen he is looking at. He starts the data back up and says that the information is looking like its coming from a first nations people, or indian people for example. A reservation looks like to be the center of the situation. But he is not sure if it is indians, but that it is a first nation based situation. 
Clif gives an example that he himself has a first nations iffinity, so the situation may be symbolic, as in the situation in question will be compared to something similar to a reservation/first nation people type situation.
About the first or second week of April, data shows that Public will blast back at the feds with a number of facts which will cause some.. troubles for the feds. 
Some level of withdrawl around this time. Words show feds kicked in the chest. Info shows two individuals in a fight, winds knocked out of one and they are sent back a few steps... in a fight. This may be an actual event or it could be a representation of the whole situation in general. The timing is maybe around the end of the first week of April up until the middle of the third week possibly. It could be earlier he says.
Event will be of a historic nature. It could be defined as a point in time.. people may make monuments as a result of this situation. 
Cross link between this situation and the just in time devliery. The feds could try stopping the devliery of food or some other goods, to the state or the actual problem may cause the delivery system in that state to shutdown somewhat. This shoudl be occurring by the 15th of April.
Transportation disruptions showing. 
Lots of media involvement showing. The hostage word comes up in relation to MSM. Clif takes some guesses, reporters may be taken hostage in some way... 
Clif finds humour in the way the weapons are in use. The siutation does not show a gun battle but more like a situation with non gun powder weapons at the initial stage of the incident. It is possible that later on in the situation it could get down to actual real weapons being discharged.
Bows and arrows to show up as in a possible symbol to represent the situation or it may even be symbology around the situation. 
A postal worker or a post office is somehow related. The US postal service will have a large involvement at one point.

Our rights as American citizens are eroding so rapidly that it is becoming impossible to address them all.

QBha20AP0cMtoklFXn40R209UgDt said...

Cliven Bundy is one of a long line of Western State ranchers who have been fighting the feds (BLM and USFS) for decades over their historically protected use of the public land and water for cattle grazing. Historically, many court cases have ruled in favor of the ranchers and laws have been enacted to protect their rights. The feds and their legal machine just ignore this fact. They are killing the ranches and the families that own them, one at a time, with their rules and unconstitutional tactics. States have sovereignty in this matter but are being intimidated by the fed's hammer. The current crisis is just a repeat of the Nevada Wayne Hage battle that started in the 90's, and was just adjudicated in 2013.

See; http://nj.npri.org/nj98/04/hage.htm
and:
http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/15602-federal-judge-rules-for-property-rights-smacks-down-abusive-feds

Déjà vu

The BLM and Clark County have not acted ethically or honorably in regard to this ranch and rancher. Just reduce the permit and water use incrementally until the rancher has nothing left. He can scarcely afford to fight the Goliath.

The Bundy case is not really that unique.

Rachelle said...

You are absolutely correct QB...this situation has been repeated numerous times in the past and has resulted in the complete devastation of the "family" farmers/ranchers. Almost all of the food supply is produced by large corporate farms. Anyone who thinks this is just about saving the "desert tortoise" is absolutely naive.(It's hypocrisy at its best since they are about to euthanize hundreds of these tortoises.
See http://rt.com/usa/desert-tortoises-euthanize-nevada-024/

It's not even about Mr. Bundy not paying his grazing dues to BLM, but rather about the federal government making sure every American citizen understands that we are mere slaves to the despots with no rights, freedoms, and liberties remaining. I don't believe the Feds were prepared for Mr. Bundy standing up for his rights as a free-man or of the support his actions would garner from everyday, average Americans. More and more Americans are finally waking up to the tyranny that is our government. Our government is just a whore to corporations...we are no longer a democracy (much less a Republic). It is my hope that the situation with Mr. Bundy brings about a major upsurge of awareness to Americans.
In reference to the Native American connection, I saw a video yesterday of a Native woman calling upon all of the First Nations peoples to unite behind this rancher and to use their skills in protesting and demonstrating to block the roads so the trucks carrying the stolen cattle could not pass. She urged them to come to his property and do the sacred ceremonies.
It is ironic that this dispute boils down to states rights vs the federal government which is exactly what started the Civil War.

good coverage, Laron. many eyes and cameras are needed in this situation. it feels like a breaking point.

Laron said...

Considering the blood moon, two eclipses, cardinal grand cross and Cloud G2 reaching the galactic core... good reason for a breaking point as well =)

Steve said...

There is possibility that EVENTS can move to next year as it happened on last year, GCE etc.

Shallena said...

It is so eerie how closely the webbot prediction matches up to this situation... including the time frames +1 year.... It is a good feeling that so many people are pulling together to stand up for our rights... all those militia coming from the furthest corners... to take a stand.... all of the emotion that this situation pulls up makes me cry whenever I read or watch something about it... a very powerful situation...

i emailed clif about this to point out the hits :) its pretty incredible really.
very glad to see people coming together. this is what must happen and hasnt for a long time. its a very good sign but I fear GUS will freak out as it has never had any opposition.

Laron said...

Steve, agreed. There is nothing to show that events should all turn out to occur within ONLY this period of time. It could be ongoing yearly for a number of years until they all manifest. (or most of them anyway as there isn't that many left in relation to the IDIR predictions)

Laron said...

A reader sent in a message pointing out that the legalities of the situation around the ownership and rights of the use of the land is still a bit confusing, which I agree. I was not confident with what I reported on in relation to that part of the story, based upon the information I used to research the article.

So I just wanted to point that out, that its worth looking into, to get a better understanding of exactly who the land belongs to. However, there is so much more going on there that really overshadows that. I may look into this further and update the story later on.

Laron said...

Note that I have updated the article to better introduce the legal and ownership rights surrounding the actual situation. Here it is below, the text I have changed / modified / added.

"The US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to have Bundy’s nearly 1,000 head of cattle removed from the 600,000 acres of public land. They have plans to auction off the cattle after doing so. Right now it's estimated that there are over 200 armed Bureau of Land Management employees and FBI surrounding Cliven Bundy's property and this land in question.

Part of the situation behind the court order seems to involve BLM designating 186,909 acres of the Gold Butte area back in 1993, near where the Bundy ranch is, as “critical” for the survival of the desert tortoise population and this is meant to be part of the reason the federal agents have moved in. Cliven Bundy has also refused to pay additional taxes as a result of this decision back then. It is said the taxes owed by Cliven Bundy to BLM is over a million in US dollars based upon grazing fees, but also trespassing fees.

Cliven Bundy has stated that his family has worked the land in question, since the 1860's before the BLM was even formed. Based upon information from Cliven Bundy's daughter, originally the rights to work the Bunkerville allotment were purchased by Cliven Bundy's granddad back in 1887. Cliven's granddad sold the rights to Cliven's dad, and in 1972 the rights were passed onto Cliven Bundy himself. The agreement in place also included the rights to built in water systems, fences and roads to assure the survival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars.

The US Bureau of Land Management is meant to be managing Cliven Bundy's property in Nevada, they do not own the land, so this is the concern and focus of the people who are looking in on this situation. The Bundy family have explained that BLM stopped managing the land and were not using the taxes that Cliven Bundy was originally paying for the management of it and this is also part of the reason he decided to stop paying the taxes.

In 1998 the US Bureau of Land Management revoked Cliven Bundy's right to use the land for his cattle to graze upon. In the same year, a US federal judge issued an injunction for Cliven Bundy to remove the cattle from the land. Last year the same judge authorised BLM to impound the cattle and over the past weekend the impoundments began.

Cliven Bundy says that this land in question is public and that it belongs to the Clark County in Nevada. The facts are also showing that the rights to work the land were purchased back in 1887 by the Bundy family and that they do in fact own these rights to keep on using the land for that exact purpose.

One very important fact here is that the US Bureau of Land Management did approach Cliven Bundy to try and buy the land usage rights, the original rights that were purchased back in 1887 by the Bundy family to use the land to graze their cattle upon and to also improve the land. Cliven Bundy refused to sell his rights to the BLM.

In an interview with Fox news, Cliven Bundy said the following.

"...what they have done is that they have seized Nevada statehood, Nevada law. Clark County public lands, access to their land. They have seized access to all the other rights of Clark County people, that like to go hunting and fishing. They have closed all those things down and we're here to protest that action. We are after freedom, we are after liberty."

In response to a question by Fox News asking how far is Cliven willing to take this, Cliven Bundy replied with, "My statement to the American people is that I will do whatever it takes to gain our liberty and freedom back.""

Laron said...

I also added some additional information to this article in relation to the desert tortoise.

"Back on the topic of those desert tortoise's, back on the 6th of August 2013, the Russian Times reported that Federal funds for a Nevada based desert tortoise conservation center were running very low and that they had plans to euthanize hundreds of tortoises that were once classified as “endangered” and are currently considered “threatened.”

On the 28th of September 2012, The Las Vegas Review Journal ran a story titled 'Desert tortoise 'preservation' a waste of money'. The story covers a number of situations in relation to history of the desert tortoise's in the Nevada area. The theme of the story shows that the Federal government seemed to be implying that the tortoise's were becoming extinct, however, the actual facts of the situation showed that the opposite was happening. I quote from the article the following.

"Back in the 1990s, native Las Vegan Harry Pappas served on the Clark County Tortoise Advisory Council. "They said the tortoise was threatened, so they had to fence off these huge areas and shut out all the cattle, which means no one is out there shooting the coyotes and the raven anymore," Mr. Pappas recalled, back in 2001. "They said anyone who found a tortoise had to turn it in.

"So what happened? They got so overrun with tortoises being turned in that they told us they were going to have to start euthanizing them. I said 'Hold on a minute, here. Euthanize them? Why don't you just drop them out in the desert?' They said, 'Oh no, they'll fight with the native tortoises that already live out there and they'll kill each other, because all these lands are already at saturation levels.' I said, 'Which is it? How can they be 'threatened' or 'endangered' … but now you tell us all these lands are at 'saturation levels' for tortoises?""

Clliven Bundy is also mentioned in that same article. Another quote from the article is below in relation to that mention.

"Cliven Bundy, the last cattle rancher in Clark County, reports that when the Kern River natural gas pipeline came through, a federally mandated tortoise population study was conducted. They found several times more tortoises per acre on the lands where the Bundys have water lines and tanks for their cattle than they found in the dry desert - and literally 10 times the tortoise population density right here in the Las Vegas Valley.""

Laron said...

Added this information surrounding an additional similar situation involving BLM and ranches in Texas and Oklahoma, and also information from Mike Adams over at Natural News who has written an article explaining the reasons of why BLM may be stepping in right now.

"Mike Adam's over at Natural News just posted this article on the 10th of April. It's titled 'BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed siege and cattle theft from Bundy ranch really about fracking leases'.

Mike Adam's discusses a number of situations which goes towards possible reasons around why the Federal Government has made this aggressive move against Cliven Bundy and his cattle. Mike explains that the BLM is known to lease their land to energy companies that engage in fracking operations. A quote from that article is below.

"This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870's. The "Gold Butte" area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.
What's also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself. It is, of course, customary for the U.S. government to bring armed soldiers to an oil dispute. (Operation "Iraqi Freedom" for starters...) Heavily armed snipers, helicopters and militarized soldiers have never been invoked over tortoises. (Anyone who thinks this siege is about reptiles is kidding themselves.) "

This dispute with BLM and Cliven Bundy is not an isolated incident. Another example is the situation surrounding the Red River in Texas and BLM trying to seize 90,000 acres of land there.

A quote from this article outlines the general situation going on between the borders of Oklahoma and Texas in relation to multiple ranches in that area.

"Byers, Texas along the Red River — The BLM stole 140 acres of the Tommy Henderson ranch thirty years ago. They took his land and paid him absolutely nothing. He sued and lost. Now the BLM is using that court case as precedent to do it again. The problem is, the land they want to seize is property that ranchers have a deed for and have paid taxes on for over a hundred years.
The BLM claims that about 90,000 acres (116 miles along the Red River) have never belonged to Texas in the first place. They will seize the land and it will seriously change the boundaries between the two states. ""

We are watching this here in the UK as well where the criminal government is attempting to pass a law that enables companies to frack under people's homes without first seeking permission.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/energy/fracking/10598473/Fracking-could-be-allowed-under-homes-without-owners-permission.html

Governments are not interested in tortoises, people or any form of life which comes between them and money/power Maybe Cliven Bundy's stand against the BLM will finally show the criminals for who they really are.

Thank you Laron for a wonderful article.

Clif has an update about this situation on his website. He has some new, very dire, fallout because of this incident.

Wren Omatic said...

UPDATE 4/10/2014: Rusty Hill, a former Nevada land broker, has come forward to reveal what he believes is the true motive for confiscating Bundy’s cattle…

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 underground too. Somebody connected to a military corporation is using political power and the BLM to muscle those people out.

Laron said...

ABC News in Australia reported the BLM are pulling out and that they will not enforce the court order.

"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."

Wow! I am floored at how Clif High has portrayed this incident - so long ago! Thanks for all the great reporting and updates :)

Laron said...

No worries.

In relation to Clif's mentioned of "Lots of media involvement showing. The hostage word comes up in relation to MSM. Clif takes some guesses, reporters may be taken hostage in some way... "

I just read that certain Mainstream Media companies were threatened that if they reported on this event, they would loose their white house reporting privileges. That may connect into the hostage situation.

As reported here on Steve Quayles site,
http://www.stevequayle.com/index.php?s=33&d=877

The start of this story also says its not over,

"At 1750 hours ET, I was contacted by my source within the Department of Homeland Security regarding the current situation at the Bundy Ranch. To put it bluntly, the people are being hoodwinked into believing that the situation is being resolved. It is not. It is a strategic de-escalation to fool the public."

Stewart Rhodes Wants Oath Keepers Bikers To Muster At The Bundy Ranch In
Nevada.

Oath Keepers
We would like to invite all of our motorcycling members and supporters to ride to Bunkerville, NV to support the Bundy family in their struggle against tyranny. Many Oath Keepers are riders and the weather is fantastic. What more perfect way to start the season than riding out to Nevada and standing for the constitution and this brave family?

Let's send a message to the federal government that the people are not to be trampled upon and our natural rights are not theirs to take. Get your clubs, groups and riding buddies together, take your camping gear and stay as long as you are able. Riding is freedom. Let's use that freedom to support ALL freedom.

Did Webbot predict Bikers support to Bandy the Nevada Ranger ??

in an alta recently he said that strange bedfellows would join to fight GUS. he did mention that something like biker gangs would join in to help the average person fight the feds.

So now the white man's burden comes home to roost, eh?
