***All closure areas are now accessible and open with the exception of the Incident Command Post outside of Mesquite.*** (04/15/14)
Statement from Director of the Bureau of Land Management Neil Kornze on the Cattle Gather in Nevada (04/12/14)
Today we announced the decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our grave concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.
MSNBC talking heads fail to mention it is the state violating the law
Joe Scarborough, a former Congressman dubbed a “New Federalist,” argued on the Morning Joe Show today rancher Cliven Bundy has violated federal law and should pay the government a million dollars in grazing fees.
"Washington’s plan to grab Ukraine overlooked that the Russian and Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine were not likely to go along with their insertion into the EU and NATO while submitting to the persecution of Russian speaking peoples. Washington has lost Crimea, from which Washington intended to eject Russia from its Black Sea naval base. Instead of admitting that its plan for grabbing Ukraine has gone amiss, Washington is unable to admit a mistake and, therefore, is pushing the crisis to more dangerous levels.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The police know exactly where my car has been — and when — during the past few months.
They could have the same information — or more — about you.
As a part of my series on the use of automatic license plate readers in Virginia, I wanted to find out what kind of information local police might have. By law, the only information I’m privileged to is my own.
This is an interview and video from filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch who was at the Bundy Ranch; he was sent by Megan Kelly and Fox News and was the only person from MSM there. He's the guy who walked up first to the troops waiting to shoot the cowboys and protestors. Good interview and clips from film. Don't know how to embed his so here is link to full clip from her show:
Ok, it's on Youtube now and here is full interview:

On our TV talk shows and op-ed pages, and in our think tanks here, there is rising alarm over events abroad. And President Obama is widely blamed for the perceived decline in worldwide respect for the United States.
Yet, still, one hears no clamor from Middle America for “Action This Day!” to alter the perception that America is in retreat.
If a single sentence could express the seeming indifference of the silent majority of Americans to what is going on abroad, it might be the simple question: “Why is this our problem?”
If a Russian or Ukrainian flag flies over Simferopol, why should that be of such concern to us that we send U.S. warships, guns or troops? If Japan and China fight over islets 10,000 miles away, islets that few Americans can find on a map, why should we get into it?
And, truth be told, the answers of our elites are unconvincing.
The Bundy land case raises questions of US federal authority on the ~80% of Nevada they claim to “own.” It’s also a spark for Americans to act on a local issue within a context of US government “leaders” engaging in OBVIOUS crimes centering in war, money, and media (also in ~100 other crucial areas).
The US dollar's position as the base currency for global energy trading gives the US a number of unfair advantages. It seems that Moscow is ready to take those advantages away.

The existence of "petrodollars" is one of the pillars of America's economic might because it creates a significant external demand for American currency, allowing the US to accumulate enormous debts without defaulting. If a Japanese buyer wants to buy a barrel of Saudi oil, he has to pay in dollars even if no American oil company ever touches the said barrel. Dollar has held a dominant position in global trading for such a long time that even Gazprom's natural gas contracts for Europe are priced and paid for in US dollars. Until recently, a significant part of EU-China trade had been priced in dollars.
Lately, China has led the BRICS efforts to dislodge the dollar from its position as the main global currency, but the "sanctions war" between Washington and Moscow gave an impetus to the long-awaited scheme to launch the petroruble and switch all Russian energy exports away from the US currency .

A study, to appear in the Fall 2014 issue of the academic journal Perspectives on Politics, finds that the U.S. is no democracy, but instead an oligarchy, meaning profoundly corrupt, so that the answer to the study’s opening question, "Who governs? Who really rules?" in this country, is:

U.S. efforts to overthrow foreign governments leave the world less peaceful, less just and less hopeful
Author and Activist Michael Ruppert died Sunday night of a self inflicted gunshot wound. He was found sometime after his radio show Sunday night. There is so much to say about this amazing, very courageous man but I am in a bit of shock and sadness at the moment. Thanks for any help to make this a proper and respectful tribute post.
Here is his last show: http://prn.fm/lifeboat-hour-carolyn-bakerfor-mimi-german-041... in it he played the song 'Calling All Angels' dedicated to a number of people
