    “THAT TOWN WAS REALLY EASY TO MANAGE FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS,” ARMENDARIZ ADDED.

    A video surfaced on Wednesday showing a regional administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency comparing his agency’s philosophy with respect to regulation of oil and gas companies to brutal tactics employed by the ancient Roman army to intimidate its foes into submission.

    EPA’s “philosophy of enforcement,” said EPA’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, is “kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean: they’d go into little Turkish towns somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they’d run into, and they’d crucify them.”

    “That town was really easy to manage for the next few years,” Armendariz added.

    His comments are indicative of the “EPA’s war on fossil fuels,” claimed Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) in a news release on Wednesday.

    Inhofe reiterated the remarks in a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon. ARMENDARIZ’S COMMENTS, INHOFE SAID, “GIVE US A RARE GLIMPSE OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S TRUE AGENDA.” The region over which Armendariz has authority includes Inhofe’s home state of Oklahoma.

    “IT’S ONE THING TO CREATE REGULATORY CERTAINTY AND FINE OR PUNISH A COMPANY FOR BREAKING THE LAW,” NOTED HERITAGE’S NICK LORIS IN REACTION TO THE VIDEO, “BUT IT’S ANOTHER TO TARGET A SPECIFIC INDUSTRY AND CREATE A REGULATORY STRANGLEHOLD on America’s access to affordable and reliable energy.”

    Ties That Bind Farmers and Ranchers

    Quite regularly, someone seems to say to me “Oh but doesn’t that farm and all those animals really tie you down?”

    Why yes, yes they do.

    They tie me to starting my day when the sun rises and ending it well after the sun sets…but it means I always get to see them both.

    They tie me to the rhythm of the seasons…the might of the winter blizzard, the first spring breeze carrying the scent of rain, the towering glory of a summer thunderhead and the fall of leaves from the poplar trees.

    They tie me to concentrating on the chores that need to be done right now…not the regrets of yesterday nor the worries for tomorrow.

    THIS FARM AND ALL THESE ANIMALS KEEP ME TIED DOWN TO EARTH WHEN THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE TRIES TO FLIP ME UPSIDE DOWN.

    And so I would much rather be tied down here than set adrift in the tumultuous sea I see so many others in. I find this mooring rather to my liking.

    ———————————————————————————

    We are American citizens, we are private property owners, we are the stewards of our pristine forest land, the managers and laborers of our family farms (that included public grazing land)  it is our heritage, it is who we are and what we do, it is our way of life, it is our source of employment and income, it provides our shelter, the roof over our heads, food on our tables and heat from our hearth,

    INDEED IT HAS BEEN  THE  LOT OF OUR LIVES FOR MANY GENERATIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES.

    So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil

    I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live

    Tears for my people

    To my fellow Americans, it is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I pick up my pen once more, not because I want too, but because it is needful.  A great man and redound patriot once rode through the night, at great personal peril, to warn others of the approaching  British forces, his name was PAUL REVERE, I find it necessary to do in my small way, the same now, and warn my fellows of the coming storm.

    Over the last few weeks, men who I consider true patriots, took control of a wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon, THIS WAS TO PROTEST THE ILLEGAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAND GRABS BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE BLM (BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT), they did so in a peaceful manner, without threats or violence, an unmanned facility with doors left unlocked, vehicles with key’s in the ignitions.

    THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT has announced the formation of new division of Security, Protection and Intelligence.  The new division is being created months after Ammon Bundy led dozens of armed anti-federal-lands activists in seizing the unoccupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. It’s unclear to what extent the new BLM law enforcement post is connected to the Malheur incident or to the general rise in anti-federal-lands activity in the rural West.

    This new department will operate independently of the already existing BLM Department of Law Enforcement and Protection under Director Salvatore Lauro,

     IT WILL ALSO OPERATE INDEPENDENT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIORS (BLM’S MOTHER AGENCY)

     according to James Gallagher Director of Intelligence for the Department of Interior. In fact it is quite unclear as to who will have oversight over this new department or who authorized it’s creation. In calls to BLM public affairs officers they were unaware of the creation of the new division.

    Apr 5, 2013 – America was a growing nation, and it needed living space for white settlers and their slaves. They had something similar in Nazi Germany – it was called Lebensraum – living space. … The immediate objects are the total destruction and devastation of their settlements, and the capture of as many prisoners …

    —————————
    Nearly every president of the 18th and 19th centuries – including Jackson – claimed that they wanted to help the Indians; to civilize the Indians; to Christianize the Indians. But what they really wanted was their land.

    Apr 5, 2013 – From George Washington through Ulysses S. Grant, U.S. presidents followed a relentless policy of removing Native Americans from their lands. President Andrew Jackson codified ethnic cleansing into law when he signed THE INDIAN REMOVAL ACT IN 1830. … In 1830, it was called “The
    —————————————————————————–
    In 1803, the year of the Louisiana Purchase, President Jefferson wrote a letter to William Henry Harrison, a future U.S. President who was then governor of the Indiana Territory, explaining what should be done with the Native Americans inhabiting the wild frontier.
    Jefferson went on to explain:

    “When they (the Indians) withdraw themselves to the culture of a small piece of land,
    they will perceive how useless to them are their extensive forests,
    and will be willing to pare them off from time to time in exchange for necessaries for their farms and families.
    To promote this disposition to exchange lands, which they have to spare and we want, for necessaries, which we have to spare and they want,

    ————————
    IN 1803 JEFFERSON SAID, WE SHALL PUSH OUR TRADING USES, AND BE GLAD TO SEE THE GOOD AND INFLUENTIAL INDIVIDUALS AMONG THEM RUN IN DEBT,
    BECAUSE WE OBSERVE THAT WHEN THESE DEBTS GET BEYOND WHAT THE INDIVIDUALS CAN PAY, THEY BECOME WILLING TO LOP THEM OFF BY A CESSION OF LANDS.”

    ——————————
    And if any Indians make trouble, Jefferson wrote, they would be driven out of their lands.
    “Should any tribe be foolhardy enough to take up the hatchet at any time,” he told Harrison,“the seizing the whole country of that tribe, and driving them across the Mississippi, as the only condition of peace,

    WOULD BE AN EXAMPLE TO OTHERS, AND A FURTHERANCE OF OUR FINAL CONSOLIDATION.”

    ———————————————
    This was the final solution for the Indians – a policy that would result in their being driven from their ancestral lands and shunted onto barren reservations.

    ————————————————————–
    IN 1807 JEFFERSON MADE THIS CLEAR FOUR YEARS LATER WHEN HE WROTE THAT IF THE INDIANS DID NOT COOPERATE, THE POLICY OF THE UNITED STATES WOULD BE “TO PURSUE INDIANS TO EXTERMINATION, or to drive them to new seats beyond our reach.”
    ————————————————————————-
    The following are direct quotes from State of the Union Addresses by nine U.S. Presidents. They show a consistent policy, from one administration to the next, to remove Native Americans from their ancestral lands.

    ——————–
    James Monroe
    First State of the Union Address
    December 12, 1817
    “The earth was given to mankind to support the greatest number of which it is capable, and no tribe or people have a right to withhold from the wants of others more than is necessary for their own support and comfort.”
    “In terminating Indian hostilities, as must soon be done…the emigration, which has heretofore been great, will probably increase, and the demand for land and the augmentation in its value be in like proportion.”

    ——————————-
    Sixth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 3, 1822
    “It is essential to the growth and prosperity of the (Florida) Territory, as well as to the interests of the Union, that those Indians should be removed, by special compact with them, to some other position or concentration within narrower limits.”

    ———————————–
    Eighth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 7, 1824
    One of the goals of the federal government, he said, was “the extinguishment of the Indian title to large tracts of fertile territory.”

    ————————-
    John Quincy Adams
    Fourth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 2, 1828
    “They were, moreover, considered as savages, whom it was our policy and our duty to use our influence in converting to Christianity and in bringing within the pale of civilization.”

    ——————————
    Andrew Jackson
    Second State of the Union Address
    Dec. 6, 1830
    “It gives me pleasure to announce to Congress that the benevolent policy of the Government, steadily pursued for nearly 30 years, in relation to the removal of the Indians beyond the white settlements is approaching to a happy consummation.”

    ————————————-
    Eighth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 5, 1836
    “The national policy, founded alike in interest and in humanity, so long and so steadily pursued by this Government for the removal of the Indian tribes originally settled on this side of the Mississippi to the west of that river, may be said to have been consummated by the conclusion of the late treaty with the Cherokees.”

    ——————————-
    Martin Van Buren
    First State of the Union Address
    Dec. 5, 1837
    “The system of removing the Indians west of the Mississippi, commenced by Mr. Jefferson in 1804, has been steadily persevered in by every succeeding President, and may be considered the settled policy of the country.”

    —————————————
    Second State of the Union Address
    Dec. 3, 1838
    “It affords me sincere pleasure to be able to apprise you of the entire removal of the Cherokee Nation of Indians to their new homes west of the Mississippi.”
    Fourth State of the Union Address (Dec. 5, 1840
    “The removal of the Indians from within our settled borders is nearly completed.”
    “Since the spring of 1837 more than 40,000 Indians have been removed to their new homes west of the Mississippi…”

    ————————–
    Millard Fillmore
    Third State of the Union Address
    Dec. 6, 1852
    “The removal of the remnant of the tribe of Seminole Indians from Florida has long been a cherished object of the Government, and it is one to which my attention has been steadily directed.”

    —————————————
    James K. Polk
    First State of the Union Address
    Dec. 2, 1845
    “Our relations with the Indian tribes are of a favorable character. The policy of removing them to a country designed for their permanent residence west of the Mississippi, and without the limits of the organized States and Territories, is better appreciated by them than it was a few years ago.”

    —————————————
    Fourth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 5, 1848
    “The title to all the Indian lands within the several States of our Union, with the exception of a few small reservations, is now extinguished, and a vast region opened for settlement and cultivation.”
    “Within the last four years eight important treaties have been negotiated with different Indian tribes, and at a cost of $1,842,000; Indian lands to the amount of more than 18,500,000 acres have been ceded to the United States, and provision has been made for settling in the country west of the Mississippi the tribes which occupied this large extent of the public domain.”
    (The payment amounted to 10¢ an acre.)

    ———————————-
    “The immediate and only cause of the existing hostility of the Indians of OREGON is represented to have been the long delay of the United States in making to them some trifling compensation, in such articles as they wanted, for the country now occupied by our emigrants, which the Indians claimed and over which they formerly roamed.”

    ————————————————-
    John Tyler
    First State of the Union Address
    Dec. 7, 1841
    “The war with the Indian tribes on the peninsula of Florida has during the last summer and fall been prosecuted with untiring activity and zeal…Numbers have been captured, and still greater numbers have surrendered and have been transported to join their brethren on the lands elsewhere allotted to them by the Government.”

    ——————————————-
    Fourth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 3, 1844
    “The Executive has abated no effort in carrying into effect the well-established policy of the Government which contemplates a removal of all the tribes residing within the limits of the several States beyond those limits, and it is now enabled to congratulate the country at the prospect of an early consummation of this object.”

    ———————————–
    Abraham Lincoln
    Third State of the Union Address
    Dec. 8, 1863
    “The measures provided at your last session for the removal of certain Indian tribes have been carried into effect. Sundry treaties have been negotiated, which will in due time be submitted for the constitutional action of the Senate. They contain stipulations for extinguishing the possessory rights of the Indians to large and valuable tracts of lands.”

    —————————-
    Ulysses S. Grant
    Second State of the Union Address
    Dec. 5, 1870
    “I entertain the confident hope that the policy now pursued will in a few years bring all the Indians upon reservations…”

    ———————————-
    Third State of the Union Address
    Dec. 4, 1871
    “…by the law of April 10, 1869, many tribes of Indians have been induced to settle upon reservations.”
    “Such a course might in time be the means of collecting most of the Indians now between the Missouri and the Pacific and south of the British possessions into one Territory or one State.

    ———————————————
    Fifth State of the Union Address
    Dec.1, 1873
    “The Indian Territory south of Kansas and west of Arkansas is sufficient in area and agricultural resources to support all the Indians east of the Rocky Mountains. In time, no doubt, all of them, except a few who may elect to make their homes among white people, will be collected there.”

    Just saying… Just asking?

    (under that freedom of speech thing) FOR CLARIFICATION….

    WAS THERE ANY SPECIFIC SOVEREIGN CITIZEN MOVEMENT?

    IN MARCH 2014, after Cliven Bundy lost a second U.S. District Court case in a 20-year court battle, he sent letters entitled “Range War Emergency Notice and Demand for Protection” to county, state, and federal officials. In his court filings, depositions, and subsequent statements, he said he does not recognize the US Government because he is a citizen of the State of Nevada.[121]
    In media interviews, Bundy used the language of the SOVEREIGN CITIZEN MOVEMENT[122] as a rallying call, beckoning support [122] from members of the Oath Keepers,[122] the White Mountain Militia,[122] the Praetorian Guard,[122] and other like-minded individuals to join his Bundy militia[123][124][125][126] in a fight against the US Government.[122] Armed militants from Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, California, and other areas responded with a show of force[127] by joining the Bundy militia[122][125][128] at a heavily armed militia camp near Bunkerville, Nevada in early April 2014.
    Approximately 1000 militia members and supporters joined the fight.[129] On April 12, 2014, and consistent with THE SOVEREIGN CITIZEN credo and without success, Bundy ordered Sheriff Gillespie to confront the federal agents, disarm them and deliver their arms to them within an hour of his declaration.[12][130]

    HOLD YOUR HORSES: NEVADA STANDOFF REVEALS BIGGER FIGHT OVER FEDERALLY OWNED LAND
    By Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times – Sunday, May 4, 2014
    DENVER — Behind the hoopla surrounding Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the Bureau of Land Management is a growing resentment over the federal government’s status as the largest landowner in the West.
    “THIS IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN ONE RANCHER IN NEVADA,” Utah state Rep. Ken Ivory, who heads the American Lands Council, said in an April 23 online debate sponsored by The Salt Lake Tribune.
    How much land does the federal government own? A 2012 Congressional Research Survey said the federal government owns about 640 million acres, or 28 percent of the nation’s land mass. Roughly 90 percent of that property is in the West.
    Put another way, one out of every two acres in the West is federally owned. In Nevada, the figure is 81.1 percent; in Alaska, 61.8 percent; in Utah, 66.5 percent; in Oregon, 53 percent. In Connecticut and Iowa, the federal government owns 0.3 percent of the land.
    “The federal estate is larger than France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom combined,” said Robert Gordon, a senior adviser for the Heritage Foundation. “It is too big and was never intended to be preserved as one big park, but the left is strangling use of it and with it, rural America.”
    Although Nevada has received most of the national attention since Mr. Bundy’s clash last month with BLM agents, the heaviest push to wrest control of federal lands is coming from Utah. In 2012, Gov. Gary Richard Herbert, a Republican, signed a bill demanding that the federal government relinquish control of more than 20 million acres of federal land within Utah’s borders by 2015.
    The federal government hasn’t shown any inclination to do so, but support for the idea is growing. Last month, Mr. Ivory and Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder hosted more than 50 legislators from nine states at a Legislative Summit on the Transfer of Public Lands in Salt Lake City.
    “It’s time the states in the West come of age,” Idaho House Speaker Scott Bedke said in The Salt Lake Tribune. “We’re every bit as capable of managing the lands in our boundaries as the states east of Colorado.”
    There is a reason Utah is leading the drive. In September 1996, President Clinton cordoned off 1.8 million acres of federal land for the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah. Critics decried the move as a federal land grab designed to boost Mr. Clinton’s stock with environmentalists in an election year.
    Those opposed to giving federal land to the states argue that the locals aren’t up to the task of managing that property, either because they lack the sophistication or they are too beholden to private interests.
    At the Salt Lake Tribune debate, former BLM Director Patrick Shea said he opposed the movement to put states in charge of federal land within their borders.
    “I don’t think states are capable of the complexity of managing these lands, and I think people like Rep. Ivory get off on these rhetorical pitches that don’t have a historical basis and they certainly don’t have a scientific basis,” Mr. Shea said.
    State officials argue that the federal agency is herding rural Westerners off the land by tightening restrictions, many of them driven by the Endangered Species Act, as well as lax management.
    At last year’s Western Governors’ Association meeting, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat, linked wildfires to federal land management of the forests. “There’s a real high degree of frustration when it comes to management of our federal forest lands,” he said.
    Many states added to the union during the 1800s were largely federally owned, but the government was actively trying to give land to homesteaders and settlers. By the early 1900s, when Western states were still new to the union, the focus began to shift to conservation of public lands.
    In 1976, Congress touched off the first Sagebrush Rebellion by approving the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, which declared that federal land within state borders would remain under federal control until further notice.
    Advocates on both sides have been arguing over the legalities ever since. Advocates of federal land insist that the issue is settled, but critics call for Congress to treat Western states the same as other states.
    “You don’t change these solemn compacts of statehood as the Supreme Court unanimously said in 2009 by a unilateral policy from Congress,” Mr. Ivory said at the debate.
    On Friday, about two dozen members and supporters of the Bundy family filed with the Clark County sheriff criminal complaints against federal agents. Accusations included assault and threats with a deadly weapon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
    Mr. Bundy, 68, lost significant public support two weeks ago when he wondered aloud whether black Americans were “better off as slaves” than on public assistance and said black social misery today was “because they never learned how to pick cotton.” He did not accompany his son Ammon Bundy and others in filing the complaints.
    “We expect the sheriff to investigate the crimes,” said Ammon Bundy, who was hit with a stun gun during an April 9 clash with BLM agents at the ranch in Bunkerville, Nev., according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.

    NEVADA DEM CALLS FOR PURGE OF ‘ARMED SEPARATISTS’ FROM BUNDY RANCH
    By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times – Monday, May 5, 2014
    A congressman who represents the area of Nevada that’s home to Cliven Bundy’s ranch says HIS CONSTITUENTS ARE DEMANDING HE ASK STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT TO GET RID OF MILITIA MEMBERS WHO HAVE COME TO STAND BY THE RANCHER’S SIDE IN HIS GRAZING DISPUTE AGAINST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
    DEMOCRATIC REP. STEVEN HORSFORD told participants of the Clark County Democratic Convention in Las Vegas this past weekend that residents are worried — and government officials need to act.
    “I am calling on [Gov.] Brian Sandoval, Sen. Dean Heller, the [Clark County] sheriff and any other elected official in Nevada to do their part to get rid of these armed separatists,” he said, the Associated Press reported.
    Mr. Bundy’s dispute over ranching fees ultimately led agents with the Bureau of Land Management to take up arms and encircle his property, cutting off road access to the land. A national uproar ensued, and militia members from outside states arrived on scene to join forces with other local activists and help Mr. Bundy.
    Mr. Horsford characterized such armed resistance against the government as unwarranted and said remaining supporters of Mr. Bundy should now go home.
    He told the delegates at the Las Vegas convention that a fifth-grade girl referred to Mr. Bundy as having a “sense of entitlement” who was skipping out on grazing fees that other ranchers had to pay. Another person referred to Mr. Bundy as a “welfare rancher,” Mr. Horsford said, AP reported.
    Mr. Horsford’s petition may fall on deaf ears, however.
    Sen. Dean, Mr. Heller has previously labeled Mr. Bundy’s supporters as “patriots,” while Mr. Sandoval said it’s not likely that the sheriff would force the activists to leave the area any time soon, AP reported.

    ‘LIBERTY CELEBRATION’ AT BUNDY RANCH MARKS ONE-YEAR SINCE ARMED CONFRONTATION WITH BLM
    Posted 9:53 pm, April 10, 2015
    NEVADA — It’s been one year since Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy made headlines after an armed standoff with the Bureau of Land Management and other federal agents, and, in the end, the government backed off from seizing cattle in connection with the more than $1 million they claim Bundy owes them for grazing fees.
    To commemorate the date this weekend, Bundy and his family are hosting a “Liberty Celebration” at their ranch. Among those invited are cowboys, politicians, the militia, anyone who ‘enjoys freedom’ and the media.
    However, despite the party, the government’s case against Bundy remains open.
    “I SUSPECT WE HAVEN’T SEEN THE FINAL SHOE DROP ON THIS, AND THE NEXT SHOE TO DROP MAY WELL BE SOME SORT OF CRIMINAL PROSECUTION,” said Bob Keiter, a law professor at the University of Utah.
    THE BUNDY SHOWDOWN GENERATED HEADLINES LAST APRIL AND FOUND ITS WAY INTO KEITER’S LECTURES, WHERE THE FOCUS IS ON PUBLIC LANDS DISPUTES.
    “Mr. Bundy asserts that the federal government does not own these lands, and he’s simply wrong,” Keiter said.
    The land in question, according to Keiter, has been under federal control since the 19th century. However, in 1993, there was a move toward more stringent grazing regulations, due to wildlife concerns. That is when Bundy stopped paying, according to the BLM.
    “IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT THERE ARE SOME CONFLICTS,” KEITER SAID.

    “THE SCOPE AND DEPTH OF THIS PARTICULAR CONFRONTATION, THAT INVOLVED FIREARMS AND THE LIKE, SEEMS TO HAVE GONE BEYOND WHAT I CAN RECALL HAPPENING IN THE PAST.”
    But federal agents have remained mum about where their investigation into Bundy stands.
    FOLLOWING THE STANDOFF ON APRIL 12, 2014, THE BLM STATED SAFETY CONCERNS HAD FORCED THEM TO WITHDRAW FROM THE AREA. THEY RELEASED NEARLY 400 CATTLE BELONGING TO BUNDY AND LEFT.
    FOX 13 News reached out to the agency for comment, Friday. Celia Boddington, assistant director for communications, sent the following statement:
    “The Bureau of Land Management remains resolute in addressing issues involved in efforts to gather Mr. Bundy’s cattle last year and we are pursuing the matter through the legal system. Our primary goal remains, as it was a year ago, to resolve this matter safely and according to the rule of the law.”

  • Bundy Letter May 2, 2014

    Pie N Politics Siskiyou County, California

    BUNDY RANCH

    BUNKERVILLE NEVADA

    Letter Read by Ammon Bundy at the Clark County Sheriff Precinct, May 2, 2014

     As we have had the opportunity to reflect on the events that took place between March 26th and April 12th, 2014-we have experienced feelings of concern, confusion, fear, anger, sadness and joy.

    Our peaceful community has been shaken. In many ways, we are still processing the magnitude of what took place. We ask ourselves so many questions; did the federal government really come into this valley and terrorize our community?

    Did hundreds of armed forces, in Red Dawn fashion, lock down the hills and valleys of our peaceful home-threatening at gunpoint, anyone who stepped off the paved road, with forceful and lethal action?

    Did we really see armed forces convoying through the streets of our town, diligently recording names and identities of anyone who glanced wrong or opposed them in any way?

    Was there really heavy equipment in the form of dump trucks and backhoes, on our mountains, tearing up infrastructure that we have used for hundreds of years, and is vital to our survival? Were we truly in the cross-hairs of snipers, and under surveillance by the latest in technological weapons?

    Did these forces actually point their rifles in the faces of our little children, while beating their unarmed fathers to the dirt and hauling them off in chains?

    Did they really body-slam our friend, a 59 year old woman to the ground, and sic German Shepherds on our neighbors-even a pregnant woman?

    Did they actually shock a man multiple times with a 50,000 volt Taser for honorably protecting his aunt, while she gathered herself out of the dust?

    We reflect in sadness and awe that this could take place in our little town. The terror of armed men occupying our land will never be forgotten. The feelings of despair of these events will long reside in our hearts. Thoughts of anxiousness that this may ever happen again, will awaken us from our pillows from time to time.

    During quiet reflection, we may ask ourselves if we did the right thing by resisting. Were we in the right when we acted to safeguard ourselves? When the only response to our multiple pleas for help was silence, when we were left alone to clean our cuts and wounds, did we have a divine right, duty, and obligation to protect our family and ourselves?

    We recall the many times we pleaded with our local government to protect us; the numerous times we called 911, and begged our Sheriff to send his deputies to assist. Our cries of distress were met with silence. We ask ourselves, “Did we try hard enough to get our local government and law enforcement to act as a buffer and perform their duty to protect and serve?”

    Were the hundreds of phone calls not enough, or is it just that our elected leaders and Sheriff have forsaken the people in trade for power and money? We whole-heartedly want to believe that our Sheriff would not abandon us, but where has his shielding influence been?

    Why was he not here to represent and protect the very men, women and children of his county that he swore an oath for? Why did he stand silent and neutral, knowing our community was in terror? What was his motivation of inaction; was it fear of the federal government or political reprisal from powerful politicians?

    The scars of this traumatic event will heal over time. We hope our community will eventually return to a sense of normalcy. We fervently hope and pray that these heavy-handed tactics will not be used on us or any other American ever again. We wonder if our hopes will be in vain; will they return?

    Will they come back with greater force and more cunning tactics than before? Will our Sheriff keep his oath this time, and use his lawful forces to stop them, or will the people be left to their own protection? Will the good people of this nation yet again have to come running to the rescue of a neighbor?

    Will veterans, retired police force, churches, businesses, families and individuals have to unite once again to confront these acts of governmental terror upon the American people?

    Will our local government rouse themselves from disaffection and intervene-protecting the people? Will they stop fearing to do the right thing and come to the realization that the people are more important than a government agency? Will they fight for the rights of the state and her people?

    They must stop putting personal gain and advancement in front of the rights of citizens.

    They need to recognize, that as our elected representatives, they have more power than those governing in brute force, as they have the might of the people of this state backing them. With that power we invest in them, they have the obligation to safeguard our livelihoods, combat forces of fear, and protect our lives with their own.

    A few weeks ago, our community was in a state of innocence and naivety. We felt safe and mostly kept to ourselves. We thought the world’s problems would only affect us through television, and could be shut off with the push of a button.

    Our innocence has left us now, we have experienced first-hand the breath of force upon our necks. We have gasped in desperation as our lives and agency were threatened. Our cries have been ignored by our guardians in the next room.

    We faced a choice-either lie down and submit helplessly in defeat, or bite, scratch, and fight until help would come. We are eternally and profoundly grateful for the many heroic neighbors who heard our desperate cries and crashed through the windows to rescue.

    We additionally thank the thousands that came from every States in this great nation, and stood in front of raised guns in our defense, and for the hope that those same guns would never come to their doors and their families.

    We are grateful for those that arrived with pen and camera, those that arrived with faith and prayers, and those that arrived with fist and gun. The variety of support from all walks of life has shown that this was an event that truly touched the good hearts of many Americans.

    We cannot thank you all enough-you have restored our faith in the goodness of the American people. Our message to all, is that it is time to make things right. It is time to adhere to the supreme law of the land-The Constitution of the United States.

    It is time to understand right, stand for what’s right, and do whatever it takes to make it right. We must continue the vision of our Founding Fathers in preserving the freedoms of the American people and the sovereign rights of the States.

    A nation can never abandon its fate to an authority it cannot control.

    Men must decide if their rights and freedoms are God-granted or are assigned by a federal government. We believe in the rule of laws and sustain a limited government. May God bless us to protect this sacred instrument.

    Thank you,
    The Bundy Family

    Please Forward to friends and family.

  • Crack Down on Paramilitary Units

    GOP rep wants to cut funding for federal ‘paramilitary units’ after BLM dispute

    A Republican congressman wants to crack down on the proliferation of armed law enforcement units within the federal government, on the heels of the standoff last month between supporters of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and a federal land agency.

    Both sides of that standoff — agents with the Bureau of Land Management, and states’ rights protesters who streamed into Nevada — were armed, leading the BLM to back down for fear of violence.

    But Utah GOP Rep. Chris Stewarttold the Salt Lake Tribune that the BLM doesn’t need an armed unit in the first place. He’s reportedly looking at ways to cut funding for what he calls “paramilitary units” and require them to rely on local law enforcement instead.

    “There are lots of people who are really concerned when the BLM shows up with its own SWAT team,” he told the newspaper. “They’re regulatory agencies; they’re not paramilitary units, and I think that concerns a lot of us.”

    The bill could apply to a host of federal agencies, including the BLM, IRS and others.

    FoxNews.com previously reported, followed controversy over a separate armed raid by the EPA last year in Alaska, that 40 federal agencies have armed divisions. This includes nearly a dozen typically not associated with law enforcement.

    The agencies employ about 120,000 full-time officers authorized to carry guns and make arrests, according to a June 2012 Justice Department report.

    Though most would expect agents within the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Prisons to carry guns, agencies such as the Library of Congress and Federal Reserve Board also employ armed officers.

    Among those with the largest armed units are the Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management and Park Service.

    A BLM spokeswoman told the Tribune that the BLM and Park Service had law enforcement on the scene in Nevada to ensure safety — and that, with just 300 officers covering millions of acres of public land, they already coordinate with local law enforcement.

    But Stewart says they should be able to rely on the local sheriff in these types of incidents.

    Other lawmakers, though, are focusing more on the armed militia members who showed up to protest agents taking Bundy’s cattle over a grazing fee dispute.

    KLAS-TV in Las Vegas reported that Sgt. Tom Jenkins, of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said officers were concerned for their lives.

    “We didn’t show any fear that day, but I can tell you, we all thought in the back of our minds, we all thought it was going to be our last day on earth, if it went bad,” he reportedly said.

    The political push to increase cooperation among the then-loyal colonies BEGAN WITH THE ALBANY CONGRESSIN 1754 and Benjamin Franklin’s  proposed intercolonial,  collaboration  to help solve mutual local problems themselves; the Articles of Confederation would bear some resemblance to it. OVER THE NEXT TWO DECADES, SOME OF THE BASIC CONCEPTS IT ADDRESSED would strengthen and others would weaken, particularly the degree of deserved loyalty to the crown.

    WITH CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE RESULTING IN COERCIVE AND INTOLERABLE ACTS, AND ARMED CONFLICT RESULTING IN DISSIDENTS BEING PROCLAIMED REBELS

     and outside the King’s protection, any loyalty remaining

     SHIFTED TOWARD INDEPENDENCE AND HOW TO ACHIEVE IT.

     In 1775, with events outpacing communications, the Second Continental Congress began acting as the provisional government to run THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR

    AND GAIN THE COLONIES THEIR COLLECTIVE INDEPENDENCE.

    THE ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION

     formally the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, was an agreement among the 13 founding states that established the United States of America as a confederation of SOVEREIGN STATES AND SERVED AS ITS FIRST CONSTITUTION. Its drafting by the Continental Congress began in mid-1776, and an approved version was sent to the states for ratification in late 1777. THE FORMAL RATIFICATION BY ALL 13 STATES WAS COMPLETED IN EARLY 1781.

     Even when not yet ratified, the Articles provided domestic and international legitimacy FOR THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS TO DIRECT “THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR”, conduct diplomacy with Europe and deal with territorial issues and Native American relations. Nevertheless, the weakness of the government created by the Articles became a matter of concern for key nationalists

     On March 4, 1789, general government under the Articles was replaced with the federal government under The United States Constitution The new Constitution provided for a much stronger federal government with a chief executive (the president), courts, and taxing powers.

    What were these things? That  the American people wanted? needed? or necessary?

    SOVEREIGNTY IN EARLY 1781, FREEDOM, LIFE LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

    “The United States Constitution” March 4, 1789

    “The Revolutionary War” War breaks out. April 19, 1775. The first shots of the Revolutionary War are fired at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts.

    “The Declaration of Independence” IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

    “The Bill of Rights” came into effect as Constitutional Amendments on December 15, 1791

    THE BILL OF RIGHTS is the collective name for the first ten amendments to The United States Constitution. Proposed to assuage the fears of Anti-Federalists who had opposed Constitutional ratification, these amendments guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government’s power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public. While originally the amendments applied only to the federal government, most of their provisions have since been extended to the states by way of THE FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT  , a process known as incorporation

    THE FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT  July 9, 1868

    to the Constitution was ratified on July 9, 1868, and granted citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States,” which included former slaves recently freed. in addition, it forbids states from denying any person “life, liberty or property, without due process of law” or to “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” By directly mentioning the role of the states, the 14th Amendment greatly expanded the protection of civil rights to all Americans and is cited in more litigation than any other amendment.
