“How long does a horse have to live wild and free before it’s considered wild?”
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management rounded up a horse herd that roamed for decades on federal land in northwest Wyoming and handed the horses over to Wyoming officials. They, in turn, sold the herd to the highest bidder, a Canadian slaughterhouse.
Wild horse advocates are incensed, saying they should have had a chance to intercede in the March roundup and auction. But the BLM says the horses were abandoned — not wild — and that it publicized the sale beforehand.
“It would take very little to do this in a more effective way, so that horses are not just sent off to slaughter indiscriminately,” said Paula Todd King of The Cloud Foundation, a Colorado-based advocacy group.
According to the BLM, the Wyoming horses weren’t…

Note: This information was submitted to PPJ by Louie (the poster). It shows clearly why the wild horses and the ranchers were eradicated in Nevada. Bundy, the last holdout in the Gold Butte area of Clark County, Nevada, is holding up big plans made by “Dirty Harry” Reid (D) NV, his son Rory Reid, and his former staffer who now heads up the BLM. This BLM generated list documents the theft and plunder of the land of the state of Nevada so that a few individuals and their associated corporations could rip & ship everything possible.
And you said good-bye to the wild horses for this………………….

“And, is this not a declaration of war by the federal government, against a private citizen? If it wasn’t……why did they come prepared for war? Why are they using military tactics and snipers? Why the military equipment and more than 200 “troops”.
On Sunday morning, April 13th, the BLM supposedly withdrew from its siege of the Bundy Ranch in Nevada. Obviously, this was simply a tactic to encourage the protesters to leave; leaving the Bundy family exposed and vulnerable to another assault by the badge heavy BLM jackboots.
As of this moment, it is reported that snipers have their guns trained on the ranch. Think about that for a moment. This is not a mass murderer. This is not some insane criminal. This is not someone who attacked the government. This is one lone rancher and his family who have a long running dispute with the BLM. Whether you think they are right or wrong is not the issue.
Not only is the BLM not actually backing off of Cliven Bundy, Sheriff Richard Mack of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association has revealed stunning information: on Ben Swann’s radio program, Mack said that he has received intelligence from multiple, credible sources inside the BLM and the Las Vegas Metro that there is “no question” that the federal government is planning a raid on the Bundy home and the homes of their children who live on the property.”
BLM one of the most hated federal corporations
The Bureau of Land Management, long despised by the general public, has morphed into a quasi-military inland army. Sporting military equipment and weaponry complete with attack dogs (didn’t they use those at Abu Graib, too?) AK-47‘s and snipers, more than 200 BLM agents, along with mercenaries from the former Blackwater firm, surrounded the ranch. Their intent was to seize the land on behalf of a Chinese energy company, a solar mitigation plan and a few drilling and mining operations. The Bundy land is quite valuable, the water abundant, and a few high rollers have paid Harry Reid and others to force the Bundy’s off their land.
A report on Godfatherpolitics.com, says Chinese energy giant ENN Energy Group wants to use federal land as part of its effort to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel-building plant in the southern Nevada desert. Rory Reid, the son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is representing ENN in their efforts to locate in Nevada.
Part of the land ENN wants to use was purchased from Clark County at well below appraised value. Rory Reid is the former Clark County Commission chairman, and he persuaded the commission to sell 9,000 acres of county land to ENN on the promise it would provide jobs for the area, Reuters reported in 2012.
As was anticipated by virtually everyone who has been following this story here on the net, Lame Street Media is now chiming in, calling the Bundy’s lawbreakers. This will escalate until the BLM feels assured that public opinion has been successfully swayed to their benefit. Even doughboy Glenn Beck has announced that he “has to side with the BLM” on this one. Well of course he does! I wonder if he had them put Vicks under his eyes again so he could tear up when he said it.
Its not going to happen. What we will most likely see splashed across the news are images of another family destroyed by government agents who were “just doing their jobs.” Watching the video currently circulating of the confrontations that already took place, it is apparent that the BLM agents enjoyed “just doing their jobs” More

Government, Immigration American Outrage, Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Government, illegal immigrants, Immigration, immigration laws, immigration Pro-Enforcement, immigration reform, Michael Cutler, nonimmigrant aliens, S.744 1 Comment
By Michael Cutler/retired INS Senior Special Agent.
The Senate bill (S. 744) that would have created Comprehensive Immigration Reform was defeated in the last session of Congress.
The media played up the fact that the Americans who opposed that disastrous legislation “won.” Most so-called “journalists” noted that the “victory” belonged to the “Anti-Immigrant” groups. Of course it is anything but “Anti-Immigrant” to oppose the implementation of a massive program that would provide unknown millions of illegal aliens with lawful status and the official identity documents that would attest to their having been provided with such status.
The point is that the numbers of such aliens would be so huge that no in-person interviews would have been possible, nor would there have been any way to conduct field investigations into the truthfulness of the information contained in the applications. Commonsense alone should have made it clear to all that this would undermine national security- however, there are two documents that provide additional support for these well-founded concerns, the “9/11 Commission Report” and the “9/11 Commission Staff Report on Terrorist Travel.” Remarkably, those important reports that were written in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 are never mentioned in the media and rarely by our politicians in Washington or elsewhere, for that matter.
The immigration laws take a balanced approach to immigration- establishing the categories of aliens who should be denied entry into the United States because they would pose a threat to national security, public safety and/or the jobs of American workers. Those laws also establish the basis by which aliens should be deported (removed) from the United States. However, those laws also provide for the lawful immigration of aliens, as I noted above, and also permit tens of millions of nonimmigrant aliens to enter the United States for various lawful purposes. In point of fact, those who favor the enforcement of the immigration laws understand that the laws take a balanced approach and far from being “Anti-Immigrant” are simply “Pro-Enforcement.”
Obviously it was significant that the catastrophic legislation known as Comprehensive Immigration Reform was not enacted, however, once again, Obama has taken to using his phone and his pen to make certain that the immigration laws that are already on the books are ignored by the employees of the DHS (Department of Homeland Surrender) thereby creating opportunities for criminals and terrorists to enter the United States and embed themselves in towns and cities across the United States.

“It appears the BLM had big plans for just how they were going to put Bundy out of business via cattle rustling and by presenting a military style assault on the ranch and its occupants. As of this morning, Saturday, April 12th, 2014, the BLM said it would not steal any more of Bundy’s cattle. “
As hundreds of protesters from around the country arrived in Nevada to back the Clovin Bundy ranch, the BLM rethought its military stance and is packing up its AR-15′s, its military helicopters and snipers, and heading for the safety of Las Vegas. The gambling odds in Vegas provide a better percentage of wins than the growing protest at the ranch.
The BLM claimed Bundy had not practiced beneficial use of the land and water in numerous court battles. For this to be true, Bundy’s cattle would have been doing little grazing or drinking water on public lands.
If it is true that his cattle did graze and drink, then the charge of failing to meet beneficial use guidelines turns out to be fraudulent.
Bundy stopped paying grazing fees in 1992 when BLM failed to meet its contractual obligation regarding water and land improvements. Bundy did make the improvements with his own money.
(United States Revised Statutes section 2339, 2340: *234)When one has complied with the local laws for the appropriation of water, and has constructed upon vacant public lands of the United States the works for diversion of the water, he thereby acquires a vested and an accrued right within the meaning of said section the rights thus acquired are superior to the rights of a subsequent entryman [**1018] upon said lands.
This means that Bundy had established vested water and land rights that trumped any subsequent federal land and water grabs using statute, code and internal mandates.
20 years later on a ranch far, far away in Nevada
The BLM first appeared at the Bundy ranch right after 1.27 million in fracking leases were handed out:
“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. (Natural News)
U.S. Bureau of Land Management geologist Lorenzo Trimble tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal the Elko County oil and gas leases sold Tuesday for $1.27 million to six different companies. The auction took place in Reno. The leases are near where Houston-based Noble Energy Inc. wants to drill for oil and natural gas on 40,000 acres of public and private land near the town of Wells. The Review-Journal reports the project would be the first in Nevada to use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to extract oil and gas from shale deposits. More

Election season is upon us.
Local and state elections are taking place and will continue through November 4th with the all-important mid-terms. Do these elections really matter? I would suggest perhaps more than ever. These elections could determine if we ever have another election that even resembles fairness. All have witnessed the effort to limit free speech and control the press in such a way as to affect the outcome of elections. We have seen the term “voting intimidation” redefined so it applies for some but not for others based on the whims of the Attorney General. We have seen efforts to enhance voter irregularities so as to benefit the Marxist/Progressives. This election will determine the future control the Marxist/Progressives have to continue to further their agenda to complete the fundamental transformation to a classless Marxist society that was promised in November of 2008. Not only are the congressional elections critical to stop this course of action, but so are all local and state elections. Many people will be assisting with campaigns, working phone banks and walking precincts. We learned about private citizens being attacked by the directive of powerful people in Washington. An example is Catherine Engelbrecht of “True the Vote” who has had the full power of the federal government attack her by a directive of Elijah Cummings. Freedom Loving Americans advocate that only citizens should be allowed to vote and to prove citizenship is reasonable. The Marxist/Progressives advocate that anybody should be able to vote including non-citizens, people who died, and pets. They tell their supporters they should vote early and often. We recently saw the Marxist/Progressives who advocate voting early and often believe so firmly in this concept that they honor those who admit to breaking the law with multiple votes. North Carolina is learning many people have voted not only in North Carolina but also in different states. More
BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed seige and cattle theft at Bundy Ranch really about fracking leases
April 11, 2014
“The way this works, of course, is that BLM runs land theft operations by claiming they are “managing” the land and thereby kicking everyone else off it. They then invoke a reptile, an owl, a bird, a snake or some other animal which they claim to be “saving,” even while they are stealing and destroying hundreds of cattle belonging to a private rancher trying to make an honest living in a nation where productive Americans are increasingly branded “enemies of the state.”
Editors Note: This is the same BLM that rounded up the wild horses and sent them to slaughter and which continues to hunt them into extinction. We warned the cattle ranchers that this same method of eradication would be used on them when the BLM was ready. And ready they are!
The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an “endangered tortoise.” But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.
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.)
Here’s the map showing the oil exploration conducted on the land where Bundy runs his cattle (all the red crosshairs are oil and gas exploration drilling operations):
