BLM Set to Stampede and Remove 1,500 Wild Horses from their Rightful Range

Leave a comment

Straight from the Horses Heart

The gather will tentatively begin on January 23.

Purpose of Gather:

The purpose of the operation is to prevent undue or unnecessary degradation of the public lands associated with excess wild horses, and to restore a thriving natural ecological balance and multiple-use relationship on public lands, consistent with the provisions of Section 1333(b) of the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act. The BLM strives to be a good neighbor in the communities we serve, ensuring public safety is not at risk due to the overpopulation of wild horses and providing opportunities for economic growth with space for traditional uses.  

Details of Gather:

The BLM plans to gather 1,500 wild horses and remove approximately 1,000 excess horses. The BLM will release approximately 250 mares that will have been treated with the fertility control vaccine PZP-22 to slow the population growth rate of the animals remaining on public lands. PZP-22 is a temporary fertility-control vaccine that can prevent pregnancy in wild horses for 1-2 years. In addition, approximately 250 gathered stallions will be selected and returned back to the range.

Public Observation:

Members of the public are welcome to view the daily gather operations, provided that doing so does not jeopardize the safety of the animals, staff and observers, or disrupt gather operations. The BLM will escort the public to gather observation sites located on public lands. The BLM anticipates that viewing opportunities will begin on January 23, 2018, weather and logistics permitting. Those wanting to view gather operations must notify Public Affairs Specialist, Greg Deimel at (775) 388-7078 prior to the desired viewing date to be added to the attendee list and receive specific instructions on meeting locations and times

Participants must provide their own transportation, water and food. The BLM recommends footwear and clothing suitable for harsh field conditions and a four-wheel drive, high clearance vehicle. Public restrooms will not be available onsite.

Background:

The Triple B Complex is located in both the BLM Ely and Elko Districts and consists of the Triple B HMA (Ely), Maverick Medicine HMA (Elko), Antelope Valley HMA west of Hwy 93 (Elko), and Cherry Springs Wild Horse Territory (Elko). The gather may also take place in areas outside of those HMAs where wild horses have moved in search of food and water and are creating a public safety hazard by traveling regularly across Jiggs Road.

The current population estimate for the Triple B Complex is approximately 3,842 wild horses. The cumulative Appropriate Management Level for all the Herd Management Areas within the targeted gather area is 472 – 884 wild horses. AML is the level at which wild horse populations are consistent with the land’s capacity to support them and other mandated uses of those lands, including protecting ecological processes and habitat for wildlife and livestock.

The decision record and determination of National Environmental Policy Act adequacy can be accessed at the national NEPA register. For more information on the Wild Horse and Burro Program, call 1-866-468-7826 or email wildhorse@blm.gov.

Erik Molvar Headshot

Our guest tonight is Erik Molvar, M.S., Sagebrush Sea Campaign Director for WildEarth Guardians.

Erik Molvar joined WildEarth Guardians in 2013 as their Sagebrush Sea Campaign Director.  He received a M. Sc. in Wildlife Management at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he authored a number of scientific studies on the evolutionary biology, population dynamics, and ecology of Alaskan moose.

Erik spent 13 years as Wildlife Biologist and later Executive Director for Biodiversity Conservation Alliance in Wyoming, where he specialized in sage grouse conservation and oil and gas issues.  He served four years on the Laramie City Council, where he moved a national resolution on hydraulic fracking through the National League of Cities.

WildEarth Guardians states “Between the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada exists a vast legacy of boundless and untamed lands: we call it the Sagebrush Sea and much of it belongs to every American. Decisive conservation action on nearly 80 million acres of this landscape has long been delayed and denied.”

Key objectives of the Sagebrush Sea Campaign are to retire livestock grazing from millions of acres by offering ranchers an equitable exit strategy and to secure federal legislation that authorizes voluntary and permanent grazing permit retirement.  WildEarth Guardians also works at saving prairie dogs and sage grouse.

The culling of the Canadian wild horses and why the PZP “solution” was a ruse: Gail Fagan of Help Alberta’s Wildies on Wild Horse & Burro Radio (Wed., 2/18/15)

1 hour show.  We won’t be taking calls during this show.

_____________________________________________

Tonight, our guest will be Gail Fagan, spokesperson for Help Alberta’s Wildies (HAW), a group of concerned Canadians who have been fighting to save the remaining wild horses, called “wildies,” in Alberta, Canada.  The Alberta government’s Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) is their equivalent of our Bureau of Land Management.

This group was founded by Darrell Glover, who flew over the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and took aerial photos.  He was shocked at the loss of foals and yearlings he saw, yet last year, the Alberta government was going to capture and send to slaughter approximately 200 horses.  Glover exposed the lack of credible data by the ESRD.  The response from the public was amazing.  People volunteered, protested, camped out in -30 C weather, brought trailers full of hay, took bales on snowmobiles to the starving horses to draw them away from the traps. 5 people were arrested.  But in the end, only about 15 horses were taken.

Find out why things are so different this year, as another cull is currently taking place.  Could this happen here?

BLM contractor Gunnison prison caught with “hands in the cookie jar.”

While BLM spokesman Tom Gorey seemingly frets that it will “complicate national efforts to make sure there is enough off-range holding capacity for wild horses and burros that are removed off public ranges,” he failed to mention that the final report of the Department of Interior Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit of Utah Correctional Industries (UCI), in which about $2 million dollars in costs submitted (and paid with taxpayer’s money) was questioned as being seemingly illegal, was issued Sept. 27, 2013.  That’s almost a year ago.

In this report, the OIG pointed out that “we found that UCI’s accounting systems do not fully comply with the standards set forth in 43 C.F.R. § 12.60 for financial reporting, budget control, and allowable costs.”

Why did it take the BLM about 6 years to figure out something was wrong with the accounting at Gunnison prison?  And why didn’t the BLM fire this contractor (rescind the contract) last year

Basically, it was uncovered that this BLM contractor overcharged the government by about $2 million dollars.  Why is the news twisted to make it seem like Utah Correctional Industries just decided not to renew their contract with the BLM because they weren’t making enough profit?

Has the BLM even bothered to review the facility reports and mortality reports from Gunnison?  Or was the BLM only focusing on the money?  More mismanagement by the Bureau of Land Management. More

THE NEED TO TAKE A STRONG STAND AGAINST H.R. 5058: Doom for America’s Wild horses

2 Comments

strip banner

RED ALERT
From ISPMB (International Society for the Protection of Mustangs & Burros)

THE NEED TO TAKE A STRONG STAND AGAINST H.R. 5058

On July 10th, 2014, Representative, Chris Stewart (UT-R), introduced a bill to the Committee on Natural Resources which could ultimately spell doom for America’s Wild Horses and Burros. The bill is co-sponsored by Representatives Bob Bishop (UT-R) and Tom McClintock (CA-R).

On July 15th, the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation and is titled “Wild Horse Oversight Act.” There are 26 members on this committee of which 14 are Republicans and 12 are Democrats.

To find out if your Representative is on this committee please click here: http://naturalresources.house.gov/subcommittees/subcommittee/?SubcommitteeID=5064

Act now and write your Representative if they are on the Committee and state the following in your own words:

The Wild Horses and Burros Act (PL 92-195) became a federal law to protect America’s wild horses and burros for all Americans and future generations to enjoy. Left to the state’s control in 1971, we would have no wild horses or burros left in our country. The same holds true for today if states take control of management.

Please let us remind you that wild horses and burros can ONLY be removed if they are causing damage to their habitat and that can only be proven through monitoring of their habitat by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). This means that setting a permanent AML (appropriate management level), as BLM currently does, is arbitrary and capricious. In other words, it is illegal. More

National Animal Identification System: Let’s start with the horses!

Leave a comment

new-logo25Marti Oakley

________________________________________________________________________________________

unclesamwantyouAfter the massive backlash over the attempts to establish national, government owned herds of all kinds of livestock, which began in 2008, and raged on for several years, the USDA finally admitted defeat and backed off.  At least publicly.  Behind the scenes the efforts continued to find that one thing that would give them a foothold in establishing the National Animal Identification System. (NAIS )  Bingo!  We got your handy dandy horses that can be used to get the ball rolling!

I have waited for someone to come out and say that “only  the wild ones” will be tracked and tagged, and sure enough someone did.  The problem with this is that the Bureau of Land Management, the agency charged with caring for, managing and protecting the wild herds, has been responsible for the slaughter of  most of them.  Very few of our wild horses, and even burros are left. Yet to hear the BLM tell it, there are untold hundreds of thousands of them on the herd management areas (HMA), and they are throwing litters of foals every year!  That’s if you take the fabricated “scientific evidence” to heart and never ask why few of these animals can be located and when you can locate them they are on the back of a truck headed for slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada.

Clearly this effort to tag and track equines is a case of taking the path of least resistance.  Especially when the BLM has been so successful in convincing ranchers that if they just get on the band wagon demanding the slaughter of the wild horses…why…….there would be just that much more land available for welfare grazing permits!  With the cattlemen and the beef producers soundly behind the NAIS for horses, there should be little resistance from cattle producers, or at least not what it was when they were trying to steal their herds a few years back.

A word of caution:  IF USDA is successful in forcing tracking on equines, it will be small potatoes to establish NAIS for ALL livestock.  After all, equines are not even considered a food source in the US.  But those cattle are as are other livestock herds.

This will be like watching someone shooting themselves in the foot, over, and over, and over…………

Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,”

June 10, 2014 – Friends of Animals (FoA) and The Cloud Foundation have filed a petition with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list North American wild horses on public lands as threatened or endangeredunder the Endangered Species Act (ESA) since the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act (WHBA), which was passed in 1971, has failed to protect our wild horses. Six states have already lost their wild horse populations—Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,” said Ginger Kathrens, executive director of The Cloud Foundation. “Wild horses are severely endangered but without recognition of current scientific evidence of their native status, they could become extinct.”

Why Isn’t the FBI investigating the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)?

“With most people in the US thoroughly fed up with the federale’s and their heavy handed, badge heavy, testosterone oozing, swaggering “the law doesn’t apply to me because I work for the government”, anarchist activity, it comes as little surprise to find out that the FBI is investigating those who showed up to support the Bundy’s, rather than those who showed up intending to harm them.”

_____________________________________________________________

An act of War

The BLM, an out of control federal corporate agency, appeared at the Bundy ranch sporting AK-47’s, attack dogs, tasers, tanks, military helicopters, grenade launchers and federal sniper teams fully prepared to attack and most likely kill the Bundy’s. Obviously, the BLM was ready to go to war against the Bundy’s; they were not there to negotiate or to make nice with the rancher and his family. And like it or not, this was an act of war perpetrated by a federal corporation against a private citizen.

1620385_620302828018437_1618545578_nThe video’s  showing armed and threatening BLM agents challenging protesters, are prolific. The array of military weapons and equipment was staggering in its appearance. The poised snipers obviously salivating at the thought of squeezing off the shot that would take one or some of the Bundy’s out. Had any protester raised their weapons, the all-out assault would have commenced and the bodies would have piled up.

The MSM dutifully reported that the protesters were “anarchists”, gun toting right-wingers, those who hated government!  Maybe they just hate really bad government.

This scene left most of the country stunned, appalled at the apparent overkill of the situation at hand and the more than apparent intent to wipe this family out. This was to have been a muscle flexing, you can’t do anything to stop us, massacre. It was to teach us all a lesson: The law does not apply to federal agency’s or agents.

Where was the sheriff? Where were state officials? The governor? oh yeah…they were all gravely concerned……and hiding under their desks. More

Bureau of Land Management: Government Sponsored Domestic Terrorism

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Prior to the attack on the Bundy ranch, the BLM, the same one that showed up dressed for war, has had a long running war against the wild horses, not only in Nevada, but also in virtually every other western state. Repeatedly violating the Wild Horse & Burro Act of 1971 by chasing, terrorizing, capturing, and sending to slaughter thousands of wild horses, the BLM has been held above the law (anarchism) by successive courts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I woke this morning wondering if the talking heads at MSNBC had survived the night, after the Cliven Bundy implosion yesterday. Bundy, who made remarks pertaining to slavery, had caused MSNBC to nearly burst into virtual flames. It was the same on almost every other cable news station. I can’t even think of what must be happening at the Southern Poverty Law (Lie) Center.

101021-lean-forward3sWhen the smoke settled, politicians everywhere had run for cover.  Most  had remained silent during the government sponsored terrorism of the Bundy’s.  Few had had the jewels to come out in defense of this family against government thugs.  Those that had, quickly disappeared into the shadows.  Apparently, it is ok for the BLM to launch a full scale attack on one lane rancher, but “racism” is kryptonite for the politically connected.

For two days MSNBC hung a dialogue box on the screen with the words “welfare rancher” emblazoned in it regardless of whom was speaking on the Bundy issue.  That was followed with the word “racist”.

So there you have it.

It wasn’t that the BLM had laid siege to the Bundy ranch with more than 200 “troops”, tanks, grenade launchers, AK -47‘s, and paid Blackwater style assassins to take the last remaining rancher off the land in Clark County, Nevada.

It wasn’t that a federal militarized agency, militarized for use against the public, had shown up on private land over a dispute with every intention of stealing every one of Cliven Bundy’s cattle, killing them, and most likely the family along with them in order to put him off the land and out of business…….it was that Bundy was a racist.

Well. That makes all the difference in the world. No wonder the BLM thugs showed up geared for war as if they were prepared to fight a battle in the mid-east.

Why did you steal those cows?

Ninja Turtles Used To Evict Nevada Ranchers

Op-Ed

UPDATED 4-26-14

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Bundy’s situation was analyzed “legally” and politically for propaganda value before orders were given to the BLM to set this giganticus raticus fornicus in motion. Long-term, there’s mind prep unfolding here similar to the staged city lock-down in Boston and Sandy Hoax.

The BLM was handed a plan.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rancher Cliven Bundy maintains Nevada, not the feds, owns the land where his cattle graze. Regardless of a lower federal court’s ruling against him ( and against this Nevada rancher, the BLM raid on his ranch and the killing of his cattle isn’t about fees—it’s about using turtles to put him out of business.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA)” are blackjacks—along with the fed’s bait and switch “conservation easements” scam —that are used in tandem by government to either drive ranchers, farmers, and private property owners off their land, or to take control of their land with “model” conservation easements that leave government in charge of what they can or cannot do on a piece of property that might have been in their family for a century; driving its value through the floor in the process.

The feds have also attempted to add the Clean Water Act to their bag of unconstitutional thefts in the past, but the Supreme Court ruled against them twice. The first time in a 5-4 decision against the Corps of Engineers who, citing the Clean Water Act and the EPA’s Migratory Bird Rule as their authority, tried to stop a consortium of Chicago municipalities from using an abandoned sand and gravel pit for a solid waste disposal site by invoking the Commerce Clause that would have given the feds authority over such water; arguing that migratory birds needed the gravel pit water, and that protection of migratory birds was “…a national interest of very nearly the first magnitude…and millions of people spend over a billion dollars annually on recreational pursuits relating to migratory birds.”

The Court didn’t buy it, saying: “…we find nothing approaching a clear statement from Congress it intended the (sic, Clean Water Act) to reach an abandoned sand and gravel pit…to claim federal jurisdiction over ponds and mud flats falling within the “Migratory Bird Rule” would result in significant impingement of the state’s traditional and primary power over land and water use.”

In Rapanos v. United States , John A. Rapanos backfilled a portion of his 54 acres in Michigan prior to development. The nearest body of navigable water was 11 to 20 miles away. Government regulators informed Mr. Rapanos that his “. . .saturated fields were waters of the United States that could not be filled without a permit.”

The Supreme Court ruled against them again.

Now, the feds have ignored these two Supreme Court rulings and are trying to again take control of all waters in the U.S..

The BLM’s turtles—of which there are “only” about 100,00 left —have littered Nevada’s landscape with ranching casualties. Bundy’s ranch and lease—the only one left out of 50 in the area—are teetering at the edge of this bone pile. More

Civilian national Security force: Another name for the growing police state

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” –Barack Obama,Obama’s Civilian National Security Force

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Domestic terrorism by domestic agencies

The civilian national security force was never intended to be populated by private citizens, but rather, by hired citizens who could be convinced to violate the constitution, and your rights simply by virtue of wearing a tin badge and told they were not constrained by anything as marginal as the law.34043_1thm

By now it should have become obvious, that rather than just using our military to attack us in-country, it is far more effective to militarize various federal and state agencies and have them do the attacking under cover of the agency. Claiming they are defending the law, upholding statutes and regulations, military style swat teams from numerous federal agencies have been steadily attacking, threatening and harassing private citizens. These attacks are nothing less than acts of war perpetrated by the federal agencies on behalf of the federal government.

That terrorist you are so afraid of is your neighbor

“If you see something…Say Something”…I would like to report that the terrorists we need to fear are inside the gates.

They were our neighbors, our family members; now unrecognizable as the transformation from ordinary citizen to badge heavy, agency employed, domestic terrorist takes place. And these people are domestic terrorists by any definition. They do not work for “we the people”, but rather, for corporate interests both foreign and domestic. They will willingly violate the laws you are required to comply with, without blinking an eye. The constitution? Your rights? Not even a consideration.

The Civilian National Security force that Obama was speaking about was created under the fake food safety bill passed in 2010, via “Dirty Harry” Reid’s infamous, unanimous and singular vote. Without objection! Every one of the remaining 99 Senators voluntarily vacated the senate chamber to facilitate “Dirty Harry’s” one unanimous vote. Every other Democrat and Republican senator was in on the deal.

And here’s how “Dirty Harry” pulled off the hostile takeover of agriculture By Fred Kelly Grant | December 21, 2010

Then, on the floor of the Senate in the late afternoon, early evening of Sunday, December 19, Senator Reid called the Recycling bill for a vote and there was no objection from the two other Senators who were on the floor. So by unanimous consent HR 2751 was passed. Then Senator Reid moved for reconsideration with the vote to be tabled. This was granted by the same unanimous consent because there was no other Senator on the floor. Then Senator Reid offered without objection amendment number 4890 which substituted S. 510 the Food Safety Bill for the Recycling Bill. Without objection, then the amendment was passed and the Food Safety Bill had been substituted for the Recycling Bill. Reid moved that the bill be read for the third time and asked for the question. Without objection, the bill passed, and the Food Safety Bill was on the way back to the House.

The result? The militarization of federal agencies in preparation for the coming assaults on family and independent food producers and on private property rights. This bill had little to do with food safety and much to do with assembling the in-country attack units now employed by USDA, FDA, EPA and the notoriously corrupt BLM. More

______________________________________________________________________

In essence, this Act formed the corporation known as THE UNITED STATES. Note the capitalization, because it is important. This corporation, owned by foreign interests, moved right in and shoved the original “organic” version of the Constitution into a dusty corner. With the “Act of 1871,” our Constitution was defaced in the sense that the title was block-capitalized and the word “for” was changed to the word “of” in the title. The original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers, was written in this manner:

“The Constitution for the united states of America”.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ababaaThe people of the United States of America are the subject of massive domestic terroristic activities perpetrated by the federal government and its agencies which have, in most cases, been militarized against us.

The Constitution limits the type of property the federal government can own and occupy. And, if our Constitution was in force, and the federal government had not been incorporated in 1871, the Bureau of Land (mis)Management and other federal sub-corporations would not be an armed and occupying force within the geographical boundaries of the states.

  • The wild horses and burros would not be illegally rounded up and slaughtered,
  • our forests would not be allowed to deteriorate and then to burn,
  • our water would not be contaminated with industrialized chemicals, fracking chemicals, drilling residuals,
  • our public lands within the states would be far better managed and maintained locally,
  • Desperately needed revenues from state assets would remain in the states and would not be funneled to the federal government via its corporate agencies.

Instead, our state legislatures have, in the past, contracted with the federal corporations to allow them to establish and implement their business plans, taking land, water and resources at the expense of the public. Even today, state legislatures continually enter into agreements with federal corporations that adversely affect the people. Everything is for sale, including “we the people”.

Now, under Obama’s promise of constructing an massive inland police force, federal agencies are assembling military style forces for use inside the geographical boundaries of the states and have begun attacking private citizens and businesses. The FDA and USDA have “swat teams” that include tanks, grenade launchers, AK-47‘s, military helicopters and “troops” the size of military battalions. The recent stand-off with rancher Clive Bundy revealed a threatening display of agency “military” force. These forces were constructed to by-pass local law enforcement and state laws.

We are no longer a free country

BLM Criticized for Selling Wild Horses for Slaughter

Straight from the Horse's Heart

Sources: Multiple, story by By MEAD GRUVER

“How long does a horse have to live wild and free before it’s considered wild?”

— 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…

After the siege of the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, many Americans were asking one pivotal question: How could American’s turn on other American’s as they did in Nevada?

The obvious pleasure the BLM agents took in assembling a large contingency, armed to the teeth against one rancher and his family is disconcerting to most people.  It is the same pleasure the wild horse advocates have seen displayed at the illegal roundups of the wild horses as they are chased by helicopters and run to exhaustion into the traps.  The displays of pleasure are not only visible, but audible.

After the Stanford University experiment August 14 to 20,1971 by a team of researchers led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo, it became readily apparent how government agency aggressors were created. More

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.

BLM planning another assault on the Bundy Ranch?

6 Comments

_____________________________________________________________

“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 originalNevada. 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.

From Ben Swann:

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

Protesters arrive to back Bundy in Nevada

_______________________________________________________________________

“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)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From ShaleReporter.com:

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

BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed seige and cattle theft at Bundy Ranch really about fracking leases

The Daily Sheeple

“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!

Petroleum-Data-Clark-County-Nevada-Gold-Butte-Area

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):

_____________________________________________________________________

As “troops” are assembled against one lone rancher, the assault on private property rights and 1st Amendment rights are being ratcheted up at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada.

~~~~~~~~

 From Ben Swann:

UPDATE: Strike teams of 15-20 agents are attempting to take the cattle and often in the process killing and burying the cattle in the desert. A group of roughly 100 peaceful protestors attempted to stop them and got in front of a convoy of agents in an attempt to call in the local sheriff as they perceived this as an illegal action. BLM agents began violently attacking the protestors, throwing women to the ground with a number of men being tazed. Agents ended up retreating after their initial attack. Protestors are awaiting and anticipating a more forceful response and requesting assistance from all freedom fighters/lovers in the SW U.S. and nationwide.”

~~~~~~~~

Across the country, but most especially in the Western states, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has revealed itself to be nothing more than an uncontrollable and direct threat to the sovereignty and economic stability of the states. At issue currently, is the massive militarized preparation for the assault on the Clive Bundy ranch in Nevada, orchestrated by the BLM.

Having already illegally seized 277 of the Bundy’s 900 head of cattle, the BLM with the cooperation of so-called “professional cowboys” and with the willful blindness of Nevada’s governor, state representatives and senators, the Bundy’s stand prepared to defend themselves, their land and property rights, even to the point of death. The BLM has indicated it is more than willing to oblige the Bundy’s, setting an example to other ranchers or property rights activists that the BLM will do what it pleases and no one will stop them.

This is what the BLM and its agents are doing to other Americans.  Regardless of your  position on the Wild horse & Burro’s, or your position on cattle operations, your focus here should be the violent assault on a private property owner by agents employed by a federal corporation that routinely violates property rights, and rights of the individual to benefit the federal government.  If this man loses this battle, if we do not support him in his efforts to protect what is rightfully his, we all lose!

As the preparations by the BLM and its thugs continues, the level of testosterone oozing from every pore of agents dressed in military gear, flying military style helicopters overhead and brandishing weaponry and personal gear more suited for a military conflict, is literally dripping off the mesquite. Nothing is quite as invigorating as being part of a military style operation against one lone individual, knowing that that individual has little or no defense against the assault you are about to launch against them. And, also knowing that regardless of how unwarranted, illegal or heinous your actions are, you will never be held accountable. More

Ruby Ridge-style Standoff Brewing: Armed Feds Prepare For Showdown With Nevada Cattle Rancher

RED FLAG NEWS

Storms

(by Paul Joseph watson, Infowars.com) — A Ruby Ridge-style standoff is brewing in Nevada, where dozens of armed federal agents are closing in on cattle rancher Cliven Bundy over claims that Bundy has allowed his cows to graze illegally on government land, endangering a protected species of tortoise.

8 News NOW

Vowing to take a stand for, “your liberty and freedom,” Bundy says he is prepared to be killed as authorities surround a 600,000 acre section of public land as a result of Bundy violating a 1993 Bureau of Land Management ruling which changed grazing rights in order to protect the endangered desert tortoise.

“With all these rangers and all this force that is out here, they are only after one man right now. They are after Cliven Bundy. Whether they want to incarcerate me or whether they want to shoot me in the back, they are after me. But that is not all that is at stake here. Your liberty and freedom is at stake,” Bundy said.

Bundy’s refusal to recognize federal authority over the land under dispute and his failure to pay tens of thousands of dollars in grazing fees stems from his assertion that his family’s history trumps bureaucracy.

“My forefathers have been up and down the Virgin Valley ever since 1877. All these rights I claim have been created through pre-emptive rights and beneficial use of the forage and water. I have been here longer. My rights are before the BLM even existed,” Bundy said.

Accusing feds of seizing Nevada’s sovereignty, Bundy says he has fought the battle legally, through the media, and is now gearing up to fight it physically.

“Armed agents are forming a military-like staging area to prevent anyone from approaching the area,” writes Mike Paczesny.

Bundy asserts that his case is emblematic of how America has been transformed into a “police state,” labeling the government’s actions “pathetic”.

Hundreds of federal officials, aided by helicopters, low flying aircraft and hired cowboys, began rounding up Bundy’s cattle on Saturday as Bundy accused them of “trespassing,” adding that the impact will only serve to raise beef prices for residents of Las Vegas 80 miles away.

Feds postponed a similar raid in 2012 over fears the action would spur violence. Bundy has drawn a lot of support from the local community and protesters are heading to the area to demand authorities back off. Officials have created a taped off “First Amendment Area” where demonstrators can voice their concerns. A sign placed inside the area reads “Welcome to Amerika – Wake Up” alongside a hammer and sickle logo.

“The rights were created for us,” Bundy told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “I have the right to use the forage. I have water rights. I have access rights. I have range improvement rights, and I claim all the other rights that the citizens of Nevada have, whether it’s to camp, to fish or to go off road.”

Addressing the justification of seizing the cattle to protect a species of tortoise, Bundy stated, “I’ll never get it. If it weren’t for our cattle, there’d be more brush fires out here. The tortoises eat the cow manure, too. It’s filled with protein.”

The standoff has echoes of the 1992 Ruby Ridge incident, during which Randy Weaver, accused of selling an ATF agent two illegal sawed-off shotguns, became embroiled in a tragic confrontation with the the United States Marshals Service (USMS) and the FBI, resulting in the death of Weaver’s son Sammy, his wife Vicki, and Deputy U.S. Marshal William Francis Degan.

The story also brings back memories of New Hampshire couple Ed and Elaine Brown, who were involved in a nine month standoff with armed law enforcement and feds as a result of their refusal to pay income tax. The Browns were later convicted of “plotting to kill federal agents” because of their refusal to surrender and were both given de facto life sentences.

In a series of YouTube videos, Cliven Bundy and his wife outline the background behind their decision to take a stand against the feds, arguing that their fight is a constitutionally-driven line in the sand to push back against the usurpation of big government.

Editor’s note:  The slaughter of wild horses and burros is expanded to include bison, wolves, sandhill cranes, and any other wild animal or bird that might get in the way of fracking and drilling.  While government agencies claim they are there to protect the animals from public abuse, the fact is, they kill intentionally, anything that walks or breathes.  The decimation of numerous wildlife species is being perpetrated by federal and state agencies.  Below is the video of one man who stood between the slaughter of the bison from Yellowstone, and the government agents who were salivating at the thought of the killing field that lay on the other side.

V.P. and Director of Wild Horse Affairs, Wild Horse Freedom Federation         ___________________________________________________________________

As the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) facilitates unprecedented “uses” on public lands that use vast amounts of water from aquifers and drop the water table, Joan Guilfoyle, BLM’s Division Chief of the Wild Horse & Burro Program, issued an information memorandum that stated because of lack of water and forage (which are man-made drought conditions caused by BLM’s mismanagement of public lands), wild horses & burros could die, and recommended that the BLM euthanize wild horses on the range.

x_bur_guilfoyle_horses_130403_video-260x195 Photo of Joan Guilfoyle – NBC News

And, at the end of this memorandum (received in a Freedom of Information Act request), in case of large scale mortality of wild horses as a result of declining water (and thus, lack of forage) Guilfoyle wants to avoid “a public spectacle.”  Once again, the BLM seems to worry more about their public image than their mandate to protect the wild horses & burros.

(Note to Joan:  You may want to avoid a public spectacle, but this horse has already left the barn, as all aspects of the BLM and the Wild Horse & Burro Program are increasingly under public scrutiny.)
