BUNDY RANCH: Racist Claim Debunked
Published on Apr 27, 2014
Is Cliven Bundy a racist? In this scathing rebuttal William Norman Grigg destroys the racist claims and reveals the real racists at work.
To those here and elsewhere gullible enough to actually buy into the MSM headline and characterization of a man born of different era using the now BorgHive-deemed non-PC 'offensive' term, to a generation of fools whose idea of "history" is 'um...like omg like...um like my FaceBook "likes" and Twitter updates 5minutes ago! Yay!', who tried to convey in his own raw unpolished naturalism without the benefit of a PIO or a $250k/yr corporate PR person speaking for him, who mulled a rhetorical arguendo wading into complex socio-economic matters, which apparently is 'not allowed' by the collectivist Borg-hive 'society,' especially if you're a salt-of-the-earth-desert cattle rancher who is supposedly forbidden to talk on matters solely reserved for MSM repeaters & turf owned by Ivy League academics, just know that Cliven Bundy just got 'Walter Block-ed,' also by the NYT. Do please consider the following:
I am also falsely accused of saying that welfare was worse than slavery for black people.

William Norman Grigg pointed out on these pages (https://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/for-progressives-though...) that Walter Williams was accused by some white guy of being a racist for saying that welfare is worse for black people than slavery. He never said any such thing. Rather, what he said was that welfare was worse than slavery for black family formation, something quite different, as anyone with an IQ above room temperature could appreciate.
As it happens, I, too, have been accused of racism for the same reason. Some ignoramus said: “Walter Block Says Slavery Is Better Than Welfare For African-Americans” [** The clip was edited by a RP & Peter Schiff hater who goes by "SchittReport." It's from Lauren Lyster's now defunct, IMHO best 28min daily econ show, Capital Account: Defining Libertarianism and Austrian Economics with Walter Block]. I never said any such thing, either in this interview of mine with RT. Rather, I said what my friend Walter Williams said: that welfare was worse for black family formation than slavery, again, something very, very different.
Hey, psst, keep this to yourselves. If the president of my university gets hold of this, and/or many of my colleagues at Loyola University, I too will be accused of racism.
The term "negro" was then equivalent of the current PC-term "African American" or if you're a guilt-laden white Trendie hipster wannabe: "of the more melanated/melaninated persuasion."
Um...only like MLK, JFK, RFK, Malcolm-X used it, not to mention: United Negro College Fund ring a bell?
Oh and let us not get into what the Dem Party god LBJ said about blacks.
The following is how a REAL racist 'thinks' and talks; from Ronald Kessler’s “Inside The White House”
“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”—LBJ

What My Father Told Me About LBJ and "Niggers"
By Robert Morrow
Friday, August 30, 2013
In honor of yesterday's 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, I would like to give you a little tidbit about Lyndon Johnson as president, his take on civil rights & his attitudes towards black Americans. LBJ called up George Wallace to visit him in the White House. Wallace brought along his right hand man and #1 Alabama political operative Seymore Trammell. His son Warren Trammell is one of my Facebook friends.
Here is how the meeting of Lyndon Johnson and George Wallace went. This meeting was on March 13, 1965. It was the following Saturday after the previous "Bloody Sunday" in Selma. Actually this meeting was highly publicized, but the actual contents of it as relayed by Warren Trammell are not well known. Also, I do not know if the USA was bombing the Ho Chi Minh trail at that time, but I think Trammell catches the unvarnished behind the scenes "flavor" of LBJ quite well.
Go to LBJ's presidential schedule and look up March 13, 1965: http://www.lbjlibrary.net/collections/daily-diary.html
On the diary it says 12:05PM Meeting - LBJ, George Wallace, Seymour Trammell, Katzenbach, Bill Moyers and Burke Marshall.
By the way, like Wallace and the Trammells, I am a native of Alabama so this is of special interest to me.

We are trading one form of slavery for another.
What I am saying is that all we Americans are trading one form of slavery for another. All of us are in some measure slaves of the federal government. Through their oppressive tactics of telling the ranchers how many cows they can have on their land, and making that number too low to support a ranch, the BLM has driven every rancher in Clark County off the land, except me. The IRS keeps the people of America in fear, and makes us all work about a third or a half of the year before we have earned enough to pay their taxes. This is nothing but slavery from January through May. The NSA spies on us and collects our private phone calls and emails. And the government dole which many people in America are on, and have been for much of their lives, is dehumanizing and degrading. It takes away incentive to work and self respect. Eventually a person on the dole becomes a ward of the government, because his only source of income is a dole from the government. Once the government has you in that position, you are its slave.
I am trying to keep Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream alive. He was praying for the day when he and his people would be free, and he could say I’m free, free at last, thank God I’m free at last! But all of us here America, no matter our race, are having our freedom eroded and destroyed by the federal government because of its heavy handed tactics. The BLM, the IRS, the NSA--all of the federal agencies are destroying our freedom. I am standing up against their bad and unconstitutional laws, just like Rosa Parks did when she refused to sit in the back of the bus. She started a revolution in America, the civil rights movement, which freed the black people from much of the oppression they were suffering. I'm saying Martin Luther King's dream was not that Rosa could take her rightful seat in the front of the bus, but his dream was that she could take any seat on the bus and I would be honored to sit beside her. I am doing the same thing Rosa Parks did--I am standing up against bad laws which dehumanize us and destroy our freedom. Just like the Minutemen at Lexington and Concord, we are saying no to an oppressive government which considers us to be slaves rather than free men.
I invite all people in America to join in our peaceful revolution to regain our freedom. That is how America was started, and we need to keep that tradition alive.

Posted on April 23, 2014 by TheHoss
After one spending the last week observing the Bundy ranch and family, as both security and as press, I think I have a pretty good picture of the situation in Bunkerville. There are several issues at play here.
The least understood, and most reported on, is that the Bundys have not paid grazing fees and taxes. The taxes claim is total bullshit. What is at issue is that Mr. Bundy has refused to pay fees for services that the BLM no longer provides, and hasn’t for very many years. The BLM has in fact been actively using those fees to create a less friendly climate for ranchers and dairy farmers, the latter of which no longer exist. The Bundys have even tried to pay the appropriate fees to local or state governments.
The real story here is that the BLM decided that because the Bundys were not going to bend over and take the big green weenie from government that they had to be shut down. So the BLM hired a Utah rancher, because no Nevadan ones would do it, along with contract cowboys, who are essentially paid rustlers, to round up the free range cattle. The BLM thugs were there in full force to protect these hired rustlers as the maimed, and slaughtered dozens of cattle in the round up. They also brought in lots of heavy equipment to destroy the Bundys improvements to the land. This brutality and illegal seizure of the cattle resulted in millions of dollars that come from the tax payers of the US. Mr. Bundys original fees total around the 300,000 dollar range.
Midst all that, then comes this nonsense "Survivor" cast of "Lord of the Flies" biotch circle pow-wow yahoos:
Apr 26 OMA meeting

The coalition of militia meeting Monday, April 28, 2014...
Believe the man at the center is "Ryan Payne," the NOT-US Army Ranger 'ranger,' the self-designated 'Me-Chief, You Follow' who openly talks about "putting one in the back of the blah blah blah."
** Pssst, hint hint: anyone who talks openly like that is either a Fed COINTELPRO, or just your run of the mill insecure over compensatory gear-laden loudmouthed douche.
A previous interview with Ryan, before the whole Oath Keepers vs. PaynePosse hit a crescendo:
Interview with Cliven Bundy's Militia Representative
Southern Nevada Watchdogs
Published on Apr 12, 2014
On our visit to the militia camp we met and interviewed Ryan Payne, adviser and organizer for Operation Mutual Aid, a national organization of militia and patriotic citizens who have taken the stand between tyrants and the oppressed.
And, I believe the "Jerry" being referenced in the Oath Keepers rebuttal video below, is Jerry DeLemus from NH: the USMC vet & Tea-O-Con Glenn 'Cry on Cue' Beck's BS-faux manufactured/astroturfed 'patriotic' "912" member (yes, because you should mark an arbitrary date after 9/11 to remind yourself that now you live in the post 9/11 DHS policestate, and you should love it, and hate everyone your govt tells you to hate, and follow-the-leader of the astroturfed, faux-patriot collective).
** should be noted that Stewart Rhodes initially was cordial with Jerry, until whatever transpired behind the scenes:

Oath Keepers Debrief On Bundy Ranch: What Happened And How
April 30th, 2014
Here is more info from Stewart Rhodes and company on the rift between the alleged “leaders” of the militia down at the Bundy Ranch. This debriefing focuses on just a few men who would sabotage Oath Keepers’ mission at the Bundy Ranch. It explains some sequences and some activities which you’ve not heard about before.
Please understand that Oath Keepers has great faith in the majority of good men and women in the militias represented at the Ranch. We just have problems with people who want to stir up trouble, for such people are most often what we call “Agents Provocateur”. We are not accusing anyone of being an agent provocateur, but we are definitely identifying certain actions and statements by questionable men as being exactly the sort of activity an agent provocateur would display. It is just a few, and we think that the greater majority of militiamen and militiawomen serving there are tops, and you have our support and our gratitude for your sacrifice for the Bundy Ranch mission. Well done. Oath Keepers suggests that you do question your leadership to be sure they are who and what they claim to be. We would especially encourage people to look into any claims about any specialty service in the military that any of the current leaders might claim.
But note please – this debriefing session with five Oath Keepers is important, but this only covers one aspect of our work at the Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada. Oath Keepers marches on, and our reports will continue to dispel the psy-op rumors about our work at the ranch. View this video to find many answers to questions currently flying about the Internet. Try to help people learn the truth by sending this to your lists. Thanks!

Rhetorical, but nevertheless, moi constantly baffled as to WHY so many seem to stop utilizing their daily 'Um, that douche is trying to sell me a lemon!' a-hole-radar faculty, when watching some of these videos like the Apr 26 OMA meeting.
Seriously, just what is it about the camera that people always are mesmerized by?
Could be Youtube, TV, Film, but the effect always seems to be the same: suspended disbelief, where natural 'laws' of human dynamics and 'people reading'-signals and clues are alchemically forever altered...
For those who may not be familiar, or interested, beyond simply absorbing and assessing multiple sources of vids, articles, direct and indirect testimonies, simple rule of thumb for viewing faraway events from a 3rd party POV: ask yourselves, who are the known, credible, reputable entities in all this.
Is it Stewart Rhodes? The Fmr. US Army Paratrooper, Yale-grad attorney who wrote award winning legal papers challenging the GWB regime's designation of what an "enemy combatant" is, who worked IN Dr. Paul's DC Congressional office, since 2009 a man who single handedly inspired a nationwide movement and network of Const. Oath re-affirmations, coalescing other r3VOL's 9 & 10th Amendment efforts like Sheriff Mack's CSPOA and Michael Boldin's 10th Amendment Center, among those who will be utilized when GovtTerrorist tyranny's rubbers meet the road: the Enforcer Class, aka LE & Military? A dyed in the wool R3VOL? A man who inspired a 90yo+ WWII combat vet, and drives him around, personally, like he was his own grandpa??
Or, Ryan & Jerry? Expensive FLIR unit (alleged) thieves? Loudmouths who couldn't even organize a HS production of McBeth, let alone a national traveling theater company.
Who are the ones who have built trust, credibility, and have publicly trackable and verifiable transparent records??
Think McFly. Think.
Even as 'out there' and improbable as a "DoD/DoJ okayed drone strike on Bundy Ranch," even for the govt terrorists, at this point, especially with media spotlight on the Bundy Ranch, if it were to happen (the Nazis already assumed legal 'right' to do so, regardless of how UnConstitutional and criminal it is) would anyone be surprised??
But how did Stewart address this? He publicly mulled every plausible possibilities: from pure Psy Ops intended to ID the source of their leak, the on-the-ground-militia element's response time/mobilization methods etc, or possibly real, seeing as how 2012 NDAA Sec.1021/1022 is in full effect and faux-'legally' they do in fact consider the CONUS as a "battlefield," in their alchemical legalese speak.
If you actually listen to the above closely, Stewart is NOT raising holy water hell alert: he's calmly communicating what's going on without an intent to 'cry wolf'-alarm, but merely as an update & a note of precaution. And yet, to the substance vs. style-clueless sheeple, that, was spun as fear-mongering, like how MSDNC dolts listening-in would characterize.
Observing some comments here, and on the InterWebs, it's like nobody listens, reads, or researches anymore.o/
Geesh. Twitchy trigger fingers, govt & MSM-spun national headlines. Oh my!
Come on folks: we're old hands at this. Macro, meta-'Big Picture' folks. Yup. Meta.
PS. Despite the fact that he has supplied our very own Gary Franchi with a lot of useful footages from the Bundy Ranch, especially the now infamous & possibly the most viewed video out of the entire Bundy Ranch saga, the 'BLM taser Bundy's son 3 times & threw a 57yo cancer survivor onto the ground vid, one other 'patriot' to keep a vigilant eye on? Someone who openly daydreams about "shooting her vagina:" Pete Santilli
Yes, he actually said that LIVE on the air, vs a woman with a 24/7 SS PSD element shadowing her:
by Jordan Chariton | 4:37 pm, May 18th, 2013
"I want to shoot her right in the vagina and I don’t want her to die right away; I want her to feel the pain and I want to look her in the eyes and I want to say, on behalf of all Americans that you’ve killed, on behalf of the Navy SEALS, the families of Navy SEAL Team Six who were involved in the fake hunt down of this Obama, Obama bin Laden thing, that whole fake scenario, because these Navy SEALS know the truth, they killed them all. On behalf of all of those people, I’m supporting our troops by saying we need to try, convict, and shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina."
Now, 'legally' speaking, a felony "intent to harm with a deadly weapon" consists of specifying how and in what manner and to whom one publicly declares his/her intent TO harm. On top of that, if they can be found to have motive, ability, and opportunity. Um, that's like a case closed...if anyone but a COINTELPRO provocateur of the Hal Turner ilk say it. Just something to keep in mind.
But hey, then again I could be wrong, and he could just be another in a long line of unstable loudmouths.

Pete Santilli, primary internet radio host on the Rense Network , has been exposed as an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
In a fax dated the 28th of October, Santilli contacted the FBI Field Office in Sacramento, California for help in fear of becoming “the scapegoat” in what is entitled “Operation Outruck” (OOT).
A search of this operation turns up a document that was taken down from the internet. As of this writing, there is no information about OOT other than the mention in the fax from Santilli to the FBI.
Then again, Susanne Posel thinks a designer who used to work at a 'design mill' who worked together among numerous other artists and graphic designers for a branding company who did corporate branding design contract for STRATFOR, automatically makes the said female graphic designer a CIA/MOSSAD asset... just because she now works at a new media company that used to pay Posel for freelance writing work on a per-job-basis, but has since gone separate ways.

"There is no teacher but the enemy." The Bundy Ranch Federally-Sponsored Cluster Coitus: Oath Keepers makes their case. My experiences and thoughts.
My final conclusion is that if Oath Keepers is guilty of anything it is that they were too trusting, too helpful and too eager to make peace with people who obviously had their own agendas, some simple thievery and others in service to their federal masters.

"There is no teacher but the enemy. No one but the enemy will ever tell you what the enemy is going to do. No one but the enemy will ever teach you how to destroy and conquer. Only the enemy shows you where you are weak. Only the enemy tells you when he is strong. And the rules of the game are what you can do to him and what you can stop him from doing to you." -- Mazer Rackham to Ender Wiggin in Ender's Game.
Oath Keepers makes their case of their actions and reactions at the Bundy Ranch in this video. It is necessarily long, reflecting as it does the testimony of five participants and a discussion of how they came to the decisions that they did. That said, it is worth watching all the way through. Please do that now and then return for my comments.
Smear vs. Stewart Rhodes dispelled:
It is also important to recall that Stewart Rhodes, the Oath Keepers board and I have not always seen eye to eye on some things. You may recall that OK at first committed to support, and then pulled out of, the armed march in Northern Virginia back in 2010. At the time there were those who wanted me to -- no, URGED me to -- loudly denounce Oath Keepers in general and Stewart Rhodes in particular for that decision. I did not not do so. I have long had a policy, dating from my work with the constitutional militia in the 90s, that I do not shoot my own side's wounded. I'm glad I had that policy, for Stewart Rhodes has come a long way since those days as a leader and the Oath Keepers are a valuable force in the fight for liberty. Those who accused Stewart then of being a coward did not see him later risk arrest last year at the hands of the Lexington, MA, police force when he refused their order to stay off the green and told them they would have to arrest him to stop him from administering the oath ceremony there. The Lexington PD, gritted their teeth and blinked, allowing the ceremony to go forward. That was entirely Stewart's doing. No, in my experience, Stewart Rhodes is no coward.
yup. know your friends and foe...and the in-between with a few screws missing:
Between the "scouts out" of the Oath Keepers and the camp containing Jerry's CP was the "lower camp" (actually the first militia presence that the press and public saw) of what was dubbed "The Fruits and Nuts Brigade." These were people who were not trusted by the other more competent formations, or did not themselves trust the other formations. These people were, in the main, excitable, prickly and resentful -- and ever ready to talk to the press. There was literally nothing the other formations could do about, or with, them, so they pretty much did a great job of representing the worst face of the Bundy defense operation and the militia to the press. They were often the source of unfounded rumors and dangerous weapon handling. One night they almost started the next American civil war by getting spooked by the arrival of six Las Vegas metro cars traveling in fast convoy down the public road that led to the Bundys. Some of them arranged themselves in a hasty ambush and were only persuaded not to fire first by the intervention of cooler heads who were staying down there. Like I said, "Fruits and Nuts" -- and a constant source of trouble.
There seems to be a consensus about "Ryan Payne" by known Freedom Movement activists & O.G. militia: Ryan is likely a Fed COINTELPRO
But this business of allying with the same guy -- a likely federal provocateur -- who tried to displace you at your job, and lying by omission and commission about Oath Keepers and the whole drone strike business at a joint presser with the same moke who stuck several knives in your back is inexplicable to me. One of the ploys of a sociopath or a provocateur is to shrink your perceived universe and get you reacting to him and his artificial constructs without reference to outside reality. At such moments you have to be able to have the presence of mind to step back out of the box that he has created for you so you can see the whole picture. It is evident to me that Ryan Payne (or whatever his real name is) is an expert at that trick. On my last day, the moke tried provoking me and I finally blew him off with the comment, "Well, like Grandpa Vanderboegh said, 'Don't try to to teach your Grandma how to suck eggs." He thought I was joking and broke off the engagement. I wasn't joking. This ain't my first rodeo and I ran into pukes like him all the time in the 90s. I am convinced that if there had been more Bob Wrights at the event and fewer wide-eyed newbies a lot of this debacle would not have happened.
UPDATE 2: Another 1st hand participant's confirmation, as to the reality more closely reflecting the one testified by Stewart Rhodes and the OathKeepers in the listed videos above in this thread, than as asserted by Ryan 'NOT Ranger Ranger' Payne: Notice: Constitutional Militias are Withdrawing from Bundy Ranch
Eric C. Rahn
Sunday, May 4th, 2014, 3 hrs ago· Tyler, TX ·
When the call came out from militias in Nevada that they needed help because a rancher’s Constitutional rights were being violated, Constitutional militia men, defensive patriot groups, and humanitarian aid groups responded from all over the United States. Individual citizens showed up to protest, and the Sleeping Giant was awakened. The Federal government, especially the BLM, found out that if they are going to trample on the Constitutional Rights of U.S. Citizens, they will meet overwhelming resistance. The mission went as all Constitutional Militias prayed it would; the BLM was forced to leave without either side firing a shot.
It is the Goal of all Constitutional Militias and Patriot groups to take our country back without bloodshed. This will, in time, be accomplished as long as the government does not fire on them. If they do then there will, unfortunately, be bloodshed.
Several Militia and Patriot group leaders have conferred, and yesterday, a message was given to one of the people that guards Mr. Cliven Bundy. Mr. Bundy was given an option. He can continue to keep Ryan Payne, a man called Buddha, who refuses to let anyone know who he really is, their other associates with Operation Mutual Aid, and the Mountain Men Militia, and the Constitutional Militias will go home. Or, Mr. Bundy can tell these militants that he wants Constitutional Militias guarding him and we will return when these others leave. This is Mr. Bundy’s choice; the constitutional Militias will NOT be part of any group trying to start a war.
There are now people at the ranch who are best described as militant. These people want to force an armed confrontation. Some are with Operation Mutual Aid and the Mountain Men Militia which are not as their actions have proven Constitutional Militias. Ryan Payne of Operation Mutual Aid has released a stream of videos making accusations of Militias and Oath Keepers being cowards because they fell back and scattered out when the possibility of a drone strike was obtained through intelligence channels. It appears that Mr. Payne’s intent is to discredit other groups so he can remain in control, and that he wants a war. The Militias want a solution. Many militia members have been to war, and will fight if that time comes, but are in absolutely no hurry to speed up the process and kill other Americans if it can be stopped without violence.
It is now past the time for Mr. Bundy to respond. Therefore, we have to assume his choice is to keep who he has at the ranch. Any illegal action by any person at the ranch now has nothing to do with any Constitutional Militias, as an agreed stand down order has been stated to pull out. From this point on, any conflict started by the people at the ranch rest solely upon those there, and the Bundy’s, and not any of the Constitutional Militias who traveled thousands of miles to protect the Bundy’s.
We, the Constitutional Militias, thank the people of Bunkerville for their support and the way they welcomed us into their community. We thank the Bundy’s for their hospitality while we were there. We wish both the Bundy’s and the Citizens of Nevada good luck with this situation and hope it ends well.
To the Federal Government, I want them to understand this: No Patriot Group or Constitutional Militia involved are deserting the Bundy’s. While we will not support illegal militant groups if they start something, we will return if the Bundy’s are further assaulted or their Constitutional Rights are violated again. Keep in mind that this last response was proportional. If this was a test to measure our strength, it failed miserably; you still do not know the size of the American Patriot movement or its capabilities.
There have been accusations made against people and groups; I personally am seeing that they are looked into. If those accusations are found to be true, they will be dealt with. One of the biggest problems we have had since the beginning is Ryan Payne, with Operation Mutual Aid, trying to sew division. The persons who have created this problem will not be allowed to participate in any of the Constitutional Militia’s areas if conflict occurs. We will not tolerate militants, liars, thieves, infiltrators, provocateurs, or any of the like. Just like the military, there is conflict at times that must be handled, but the correct way is to deal with these problems is in house, and not to air dirty laundry in public. I personally apologize to all who have been exposed to the aforementioned videos; they were very unprofessional, and purposely done to discredit the Constitutional Militias. It makes me wonder about the true intentions of those involved. God Bless America and every one of us who lives here.
