NEVADA: Civilian Militia Remains at Bundy Ranch After Standoff Ends

NEVADA: Civilian Militia Remains at Bundy Ranch After Standoff Ends

(submitted by Gabe Ruegner 12 yrs old)

This brave militia stood up for the Bundy ranch after their cows were being taken away for ‘illegally’ grazing on public or free roaming land. This story is of great people who wanted to stand up for something that is as patriotic as the battle of Lexington and Concord. Sadly, the leftist ABC news reports it as an act of criminal intent.

A group of armed militia and protesters, some sporting nametags reading “domestic terrorist,” remain camped out on a cattle ranch in Nevada, where they have been purportedly defending the property since a tense showdown ended with the federal government last week.A 20-year struggle between rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management over decades of alleged illegal cattle grazing on public land ended last Sunday, with the government backing down from a controversial week-long cattle round-up.

But many people who say they support Bundy said they felt the battle was far from over, as evidenced by some responses ABC News received on social media, after the BLM first announced on April 12 that it was withdrawing from the area and releasing the 380 cattle already collected as part of the round-up on an area of land half the size of Delaware state.

In the days leading up to the government’s withdrawal, the movement had reportedly grown to 600 men, women and children, although conflicting counts emerged from the two sides. Demonstrators rallied together, bonding by campfires at night, while local protest leaders warned people not to wear camouflage and to keep their weapons inside their vehicles.

A group from those supporters, some who had ventured across state lines to support Bundy and his family, stayed behind to guard the 67-year-old’s melon farm and cattle ranch. The nametags worn by a few supporters came in response to Sen. Harry Reid’s, D-Nev., comments on Thursday labelling them “domestic terrorists.”

One of the armed and camouflaged men, a former Marine sergeant who said he was leading a Bundy security detail of 40 people or so, told the AP he considers protecting the ranch as a patriotic duty. The BLM said it would now move to resolve the matter “administratively and judicially,” although the government has unsuccessfully gone head to head with Bundy in Court since 1993, after it established the area as a protected habitat for the endangered desert tortoise and slashed Bundy’s cattle allotment.

When Bundy refused to pay his grazing fees, the agency cancelled his permit, a move later upheld by federal judges.

“I have no contract with the United States government,” Bundy said. “I was paying grazing fees for management and that’s what BLM was supposed to be, land managers, and they were managing my ranch out of business, so I refused to pay.”

I think leftist news reports are almost always hooey. Until this very corrupt government becomes once again the people’s government, we need to fight the media. We need to be heroes like the Founding Fathers, like the people of Bundy ranch; you, me, him, her, us, we all must serve in the great cause of freedom. The sleeping giant is waking, one might seem powerless, but many can win! Join in the action and help America’s cause.
