The BLM-Bundy Ranch confrontation

What comes next - Government seldom gives up this easily.
I’d venture this is only settled for the moment and the heist will resume as soon as the media is distracted by something else... Figure however long it takes for the Feds to run facial recognition on everyone who showed up in support of the Bundys, and time for a Grand Jury to be empaneled and come up with some kind of conspiracy to obstruct, or whatever, and then a snap decision to show We the People who the boss is. I give it 120 days, more or less, but we’ll see how it all rolls out. George Ure at urbansurvival.com ol remus and the woodpile report

Your Say

You can bet that the BLM and the Green Weenies have not given up on this. They will keep the legal pressure on. They will, as stated by the writer, look for legal ways to bring pressure on the supporters. Facial ID, cell phone tracing, and video will help them ID the supporters. With legal harassment, tax audits, injunctions to cease and desist, phony firearms violations, and any other devious legal tricks they can dream up will be used to peel off the supporters. I think they learned from Waco and Ruby Ridge that lethal force against citizens doesn't go down very well. They don't need lethal force - time and lawfare will wear the opposition down.

If there's a land deal with a Chinese solar company with a time limit on it, (Is it true? Do we know?) then we can expect much heavier lawfare and harassment.

I say bring it on. The true intent of this illegal government needs to be seen as soon as possible. The more these "incidents" occur the better, as the people will see what tyranny their vote has seeded.

That's my concern as well. They aren't done here, they're just changing tactics.

It is difficult for e to comprehend those who think thatthe federal government does not own the land and can set the rules on their land. It is equally incomprehensible that Bundy and others think that there is no legitimate federal government and that the state is the supreme legal entity in this hot mess. The mistake so many have made is hitching their star on Bundy. He already lost in court all that is left now is for him to pay the price for his mistakes. He owes the money and he will either pay it or go to jail. He and his family committed real crimes in this standoff and no doubt they will individually have to go to court to answer for them. But even worse for all the nut cases who showed up to support this sovereign citizen they too committed crimes in their "Nevada Spring" vacation and it seems likely that many of them will be arrested and face charges in various courts. Crimes? You say! Yes it is indeed a crime to use weapons to intimidate law enforcement who are carrying out a legal court order and then to take back the cattle that they legally rounded up. And thanks to many of the perps themselves and the onlookers we have sufficient videos of the events to convict. When you look up "stupid" in the dictionary you will see a picture of a self proclaimed "militia" person with an M16 facing off law enforcement in Nevada proudly prancing around in a video. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Before jumping on one side or another I am going to type this: There is a lot going on here, and a lot I know nothing about. This is not a 1970's trucker movie with the big bad smokey and the free-living driver as his foil.

Whose land are we talking about, who is doing what on that land, what are the laws, what are the court decisions?

I do not want anyone shot over this; and I do not know enough to say who is actually in the right here; and how much part of "in the right" each party can truly claim.

Speaking of 1970's trucker movies....
