Bureau of Land Management ends roundup of Bundy cattle, releases them

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years.

The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals off land near Gold Butte.

The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public.

Here's my comment post:

This story is the perfect opportunity to call, and expose, BS on the mainstream media. It's time to get the public out of their "twitter" mentality and have us all do just a little bit of work to look into the REAL details of this situation. So, here's the homework assignment... research the BLM and how they handled themselves in their losing court case against a suit ranchers filed against them years ago over this public land. Then look into their handling of the "endangered" turtles (make sure you use the keyword "euthanasia" in the query). Then look into Harry Reid's family involvement in an investment with a Chinese manufacturer of Solar Panels (5 billion dollar deal) to locate their facilities on the land, which just happened to be where rancher Bundy was, the last holdout on BLM lands. Then, finally, dig out that old dusty copy of your Constitution and show me the section that enumerates EXACTLY what land the Federal Government is allowed to own.

Thanks to

Alex Jones and David Knight. Good reporting.

Harry Reid put an end to it because...

he was being exposed as having colluded with China to make money off these lands for his family.

If that story proves out to be true

It has some serious ramifications and could even bring criminal charges. Mr Bundy may just have the last laugh. This whole Bundy ranch story could make a really good movie, the movie rights alone could pay his land rent.

I feel bad for the cattle

Despite this victory for liberty (assuming nothing goes wrong), they'll still end up on someone's dinner plate.

Yumm ...

... I'll take the filet.

Why don't you eat a dog or cat instead?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Not enough meat

Not even the fattest cat or dog has as much meat as the skinniest cow. And beef tastes pretty good by itself, even without added spices. I wouldn't know about dog or cat meat.

Bundy needs to make sure the Feds didn't bug the cattle

Bundy needs to make sure the Feds didn't bug the cattle

All the Feds have to do

is wait until people have to head back home to work their jobs. I think they're playing the waiting game and encouraging people to leave so that they can come back in next week and finish the job quickly.

Get it in writing

They need this agreement in the form of something legally binding where it's unlikely the BLM will pull something stupid

If they do this then

MORE will end up going down there. There were many who were about to head down today/tomorrow as well as a ton planned for next week. I think people will stay up to date on this and IF they play the bait n switch, it will really piss people the hell off.

I was planning on heading down there next weekend with my family and if the need is still there, I will still head down.

We will see soon enough because there are ALOT of eyes on the feds right now.

Agree with you, we all need to keep aware now that we know what

they are up too. A lot of retired people can be there in a heart beat too. Understandable for those that have to work and can't get off at last minute notice. So proud of everyone supporting Bundy today. You know he is proud we the Americans backed him today. Today should of woke up a lot more Americans.



I haven't been able to constantly monitor this situation today, but that same exact point was made on a SW Radio Show:
"Coffee with the Wranglers"
I happened upon it years ago..it's a cattleman's themed-show, originating out of Tennessee.
They made the same point you did.

Atom Bombs vs Cattle!
That doesn't require too much thinking LOL!

So glad that Bundy has achieved a victory for now!!
God Bless Those Supporters....Every one of them!

"Clearing things up!
Regarding Cell Towers and Service:
People have been saying our Cell Phone towers are down and things of that nature, this is incorrect.

Regarding Gun Shots:
This is also false to my knowledge there has been no shots and no one has been hurt.

Regarding Arrests:
At this point no one has been arrested today that we know of either and we are keeping close hands on the situation!

IF Something happens, once confirmed we will let you know! Until then ASSUME that the three topics above are FALSE

"HIS"story is going on all the time. Whether or not one sees it, is the defining point of one's character.~MEB

I sure hope they aren't bluffing to get people

to cool off before they start back up again.

Not a Very Good Deal

He will have to watch his back every minute of the day as the feds may pay $millions to hire IRS auditors and prosecutors to check over all of his dealings with a fine tooth comb. I would not be surprised if these parasites return in the future when everyone least expects them.

In the meantime, Bundy loses 300 head of cattle, probably worth about $250,000. He has to rebuild his herd and might have to pay back any loans that he might have on the original stock cattle that was stolen.

Hopefully he has the resources necessary to file lawsuits against everyone involved in this incident so that they will think twice about playing more games in the the future.

It seems ...

... that just as things were heating up, we could find out about it online, but the MSM outlets were SILENT.

CNN was doing a story about golf at Augusta and Fox was running every story OTHER THAN this one.

I suspect the news outlets will conspire with the feds by NOT covering it if the SHTF. They learned from Waco.

Disgusting, but that's what it feels like.

I too have been checking the news media and...

Zip, Nada, Zero,...not a damn thing about it...bastards!!! I am pissed!

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they attack you, then you win!"

"The belief is worthless if the fear of social and physical punishment overrides the belief."

Yep ...

... CNN continues their 24-hour "news" report to tell us there is nothing new to tell us about Malaysian 370.

Fox has a bunch of chicks sampling chocolate.

Meanwhile, potentially one of the most important stories unfolding in years, and they can't be bothered.

The people running these "news" stations are nasty, vile scum.

We don't need them.

But, I'm a little surprised that NOBODY wants the SCOOP.
This is a good demonstration of how controlled they are.
