Why The Bundy Ranch Situation Concerns All Americans

Why The Bundy Ranch Situation Should Alarm All Americans


In a short speech delivered by one of Bundy’s friends at a Town Board meeting last week, we hear of exactly what the Bundy Ranch situation means. In sum, watch this event unfold for yourself and listen to this man’s speech in the video below. What this event is showing is that Americans haven’t forgotten that at times freedom must be defended.

The ongoing dispute over grazing rights between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy is reaching a breaking point although the media is no where to be found. 

The initial dispute began in 1998 when a federal judge in Las Vegas first ordered Bundy to remove his trespassing cattle. The BLM, who was granted the authority to enforce the order, stated that Bundy’s cattle had been trespassing on U.S. land without required permits for over 25 years. Bundy responded by stating he doesn’t recognize federal authority on land that he believes belongs with the state of Nevada.

On Saturday, the BLM began taking some of Bundy’s cattle and tensions have escalated with calls for militia due to the enforcement the BLM believes is justified. The bigger issue that has become shockingly apparent is the militarization of these law enforcement officials themselves.

The concern over the federal government involvement in exacerbating the problem is shared by Nevada state Sen. Peter Goicoechea. In response to being notified of tensions on Wednesday due to the involvement of military personnel from the federal government ,Senator Goicoechea stated,”if military personnel are down in that area, that equates to martial law“.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday Cliven Bundy addressed his own concerns in pointing out that, “This is a lot bigger deal than just my cows. Its a statement for freedom and liberty and the Constitution”. 

The show of force the BLM is using in intimidating Bundy is the real story here. Cliven further stated on the Washington Free Beacon today that the government has armed the agents with military-style weaponry.

“They’re carrying the same things a soldier would,” he told the Free Beacon. “Automatic weapons, sniper rifles, top communication, top surveillance equipment, lots of vehicles. It’s heavy soldier type equipment.”

Even though the mainstream media has remained virtually silent on the situation, social media has not. 

Through social media the story is gaining momentum with the new found attention from not only legislatures but sheriff and ex-military officials around the country.

For instance, the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOSA) led by retired Arizona Sheriff Ricard Mack along with the Oath Keepers Organization are currently organizing a delegation of current serving western state legislators and sheriffs to travel to the site of the tense stand off.

The reason being, “to prevent federal government provocation of violence resulting in another Ruby Ridge or Waco type incident”. 

They also hope that their example of Oath-Sworn public servants defending the rights of the people will prompt Clark County, Nevada Sheriff Douglas Gillespie and Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval to honor their oaths of office by taking action to defend the rights of the Bundy family.

The involvement of CSPOSA and the Oath Keeper’s in the defense of the people is critically important as it exemplifies the alarming division between the people of the United States and our militarized federal government. 4:32
