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.

Foxnews has many stories on Cliven Bundy story.


This is a ploy to get people to go home

I have friends at the protest. They said that Las Vegas metro police have blocked the single lane highway entrance from AZ into NV. Keep in mind, this guys ranch is really close to the AZ border, just outside of Mesquite, Nv. Theres is an update from 30 minutes ago with pictures to show what I am talking about.


Yep, Watch out for the other...

...boot! Make sure the People's trap is set. Lots of cameras and witnesses, and back up people.

I think you're right. That 30

I think you're right.

That 30 day "no fly zone" business is very telling. They want folks to go home and nobody flying over the area so they can finish what they started.

Hadn't heard of the no fly zone...


Yeah, I think they're up to

Yeah, I think they're up to something.

On the surface, it seems we can chalk one up to liberty.

The Declaration comes to mind.

Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies;

Can't wait to hear the Bundy's take on this debacle.



This is far from over...

I remember in 2007 when Bush, McCain, and Kennedy were pushing for the New World Order's "Dream Act". Yet now we have mainstream GOP people pushing for a compromise that allows illegals to come in via an illegal process.

This is an ongoing battle, and unless we use incidents like this to educate and keep the fight out front, we'll lose.

How About Bundy Replaces The Impeached Harry Reid

I like the sound of that one!

Could be close to time for a Bundy bomb

To help the replacement costs of his watering system destroyed by the BLM as well as help replacing the stolen cattle he suffered at the hands of an out of control federal government. This is a slap in the face of the globalists and their enforcement division by showing that "We the People" still recognize the Constitution even if they choose to disregard such. Bundy needs a day in court in front of a jury of his peers as opposed to a Federal judge rubber stamping the destruction of our Constitutional rights.

Aint no power like the power of the people, cause the power of the people don't stop!

Sheriff Mack has also suggested a fund raiser

to help Bundy replace his losses.

Send that militia to the IRS headquarters next.

Concern for the safety of BLM 'employees' > stewards x mercenaries, while the livelihood of generational ranchers be damned apparently.

Kudos to the fine patriots assisting Mr. Bundy, and himself as a man of courage.

Next stop: repeal unprincipled policies of federal encroachment

so it's really all Senior

so it's really all Senior majority leader respected and admired, loved and cherished, honored and praised, Senator Ried's fault.

BLM "remains disappointed that Bundy continues to not comply."

Impound Operation Concluded
Statement from Director of the Bureau of Land Management Neil Kornze on the Cattle Gather in Nevada:

As we have said from the beginning of the gather to remove illegal cattle from federal land consistent with court orders, a safe and peaceful operation is our number one priority. After one week, we have made progress in enforcing two recent court orders to remove the trespass cattle from public lands that belong to all Americans.

Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.

We ask that all parties in the area remain peaceful and law-abiding as the Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service work to end the operation in an orderly manner.

Ranching has always been an important part of our nation’s heritage and continues throughout the West on public lands that belong to all Americans. This is a matter of fairness and equity, and we remain disappointed that Cliven Bundy continues to not comply with the same laws that 16,000 public lands ranchers do every year. After 20 years and multiple court orders to remove the trespass cattle, Mr. Bundy owes the American taxpayers in excess of $1 million. The BLM will continue to work to resolve the matter administratively and judicially.

Right Now 2pm Eastern

the Bundy's and everyone there 1000 or so are going to get the cattle back...
best live feed is alex jones .... current stuff.

Sheriff Gillepsie must of

cashed his Federal Security Funding check. http://www.8newsnow.com/story/25007074/reid-vegas-to-again-g...

For being Reid's little pawn.

For being Reid's little pawn. Sad thing is most people will not connect the dots on how corrupt our elected officials are. I am pretty sure that if Gillespie would do his sworn duty Clark County would end up like Josephine County here in Oregon.

LIVE: Clark Co. Sheriff Announces BLM ‘Will Cease Operation,’ Open Land to Public

Great news for liberty, but

Great news for liberty, but will it last? Any word on what they are doing with the cattle they've stolen? Is Bundy fighting to get them back? I can't seem to get any live feeds from NV other than MSM FoxNews, not a very trustworthy source for news. I will put a live feed up on MuckrakerNews.com is we can find one.

Please stop singing

or take some singing lessons. This is embarrassing, whoever is singing needs to stop.

People have a right to sing.

Singing is an expression of the heart. It is a right, a type of speech.
It is not a privilege only for the skilled. Wisdom, regarding the circumstances and situation, and respect for the hearers will best determine whether a person sings or not. I'd rather hear someone sing poorly from the heart than professionally with out any heart.

It is likely only temporary

BLM is not conceding. They claim to be leaving out of safety concerns. And they didn't say they were going to give back their cattle.

But Bundy is asking them to remove park gates and buildings? I'm not exactly sure what he asked to be dismantled over the next hour. Maybe someone else knows.

They'll be back...unless of course Harry Reid got freaked out about the report linking him to this land and pulled the plug...

I agree with you.

If I were the people there, I wouldn't leave. It's not like anyone in government ever tells the people the truth. The sheriff should face a recall, along with the Governor.


That's exactly what should happen! Let's hope the people's memory is as long as an elephant's in this case.

Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
