BUT INDICATES THIS IS NOT THE END
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 12, 2014) — 2:53 p.m. EDT – In a news release received moments ago from the National Liberty Federation, it was reported via Infowars that Clark County, NV Sheriff Douglas C. Gillespie, publicly stated that the BLM would cease confiscating rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle “because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.”
Bundy claims that his family has owned the land on which his cattle have been grazing since the late 1800s, while the BLM claims that the land “belongs to all Americans” and has been rounding up Bundy’s cattle over the last week.
Bundy stated that he believes in state sovereignty and has willingly paid grazing fees to Clark County.
The situation threatened to become violent when armed militia members from several states reportedly arrived at the Bundy ranch throughout the week, and particularly on Saturday, who were “not afraid to shoot,” if necessary.
Earlier this week, one of Bundy’s sons was reportedly arrested by federal agents and another tasered. An older man said to be suffering from cancer was reportedly thrown to the ground, while a pregnant woman was allegedly threatened with a BLM attack dog from a Ranger K9 unit. “This is America, and they are the aggressors,” an eyewitness said to the camera. [Caution: very strong language in video.]
After the Rangers left on Friday, a 57-year-old woman said she was thrown to the ground by Rangers for taking pictures of them with her phone.
Neil Kornze, a former senior adviser to Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), issued a statement at the BLM website on Saturday, calling the actions against Bundy a “cattle gather.” Kornze implied that BLM may take “administrative and judicial” action against Bundy in order to encourage him to “comply with the same laws that 16,000 public lands ranchers do every year.”
On Friday, Infowars reported that the BLM may have targeted the area where Bundy’s cattle are grazing to develop solar panel power stations which involve the government of China. The BLM website states that as part of its mission, it is involved in “managing and conserving public lands” and “renewable energy” projects on “public lands.”
As of Friday night, Sheriff Gillespie had not issued a public statement about the impending standoff between Bundy and his supporters and the BLM.
