The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues to roundup the cattle of the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada over his right to graze his cattle on federal lands. Bundy says his family held these rights for over 100 years, establishing a precedent. The federal government now owns 81% of the land in Nevada.
The government is leveling millions in fines and costly charges against him, which will financially destroy him as they steal his cattle, killing some in the process.
The land in question is being preserved for the so-called “protected” desert tortoise” and the Wild Mustang. The extremists in the environmental movement are in lockstep with the government bureaucrats to deprive Americans of their property rights, including the right to graze cattle on the once-free range.
Nevada Sen. Dean Heller told the BLM Chief that law-abiding ranchers shouldn’t be penalized by an overreaching agency.
Gov. Brian Sandoval called it an atmosphere of intimidation because of the roundup and he believes some of what is going on is unconstitutional.
“No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans,” the governor said in a statement.
Sandoval said he was most offended that armed federal officials have tried to corral people protesting the roundup into a fenced-in “First Amendment area” south of the resort city of Mesquite.
The site “tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution” and should be dismantled, Sandoval said.
This occurred when the Bundys saw a convoy of dump trucks and backhoes they thought were there to bury cattle. The feds were killing cattle in the process of rounding them up.
They chased the agents off during this incident.
The Pete Santilli Show took the video. They are asking anyone in the vicinity to come to the ranch and help stave off the feds. See more on this link.
Cliven Bundy’s daughter, Bailey Bundy Logue said, “Wake up America. Look what our ancestors fought for and we need to stand up for that. We need to realize what’s happening. They are taking everything away from us. This isn’t only about one family. This is about everyone’s family. This is martial law and it’s in America and so what are you going to do to have it stay out of America?”
