Just In: Obama Accused By Congressman Of Illegal Action At Bundy Ranch
Western Journalism ^ | 04-17-2014 | B. Christopher Agee

Posted on 04/17/2014 8:33:38 PM PDT by Kevin in California

After the federal Bureau of Land Management agents backed down from their intimidating stance at the Bundy Ranch last weekend, ample evidence has surfaced indicating the standoff between the government and the Nevada ranching family is far from over. Throughout the weeklong stalemate, members of the Bundy family were physically assaulted by armed officers, numerous cows were shot dead, and protesters faced threats of gunfire for merely expressing their outrage.

Immediately after what many considered a victory against a tyrannical federal agency, a number of leftist voices – most notably, Sen. Harry Reid – indicated the action against this family will continue.

Excerpts from the article:

“Because of this standoff,” he wrote, “I have looked into BLM’s authority to conduct such paramilitary raids against American citizens, and it appears that BLM is acting in a lawless manner in Nevada.”

He cited the limited powers granted to the federal government, noting the bureau has no “right to assume preemptory police powers, that role being reserved to the States,” and explained “many federal laws require the federal government to seek assistance from local law enforcement whenever the use of force may become necessary.”

The letter included a section of the U.S. Code — 43 U.S.C. Section 1733, Subsection C — stating exactly that point. [Emphasis Stockman’s]

“When the Secretary determines that assistance is necessary in enforcing Federal laws and regulations relating to the public lands or their resources he shall offer a contract to appropriate local officials having law enforcement authority within their respective jurisdictions with the view of achieving maximum feasible reliance upon local law enforcement officials in enforcing such laws and regulations.”
In the case of the Bundy Ranch, he continued, “the relevant local law enforcement officials appear to be the Sheriff of Clark County, Nevada, Douglas C. Gillespie.”

Gillespie, however, conspicuously took a back seat to BLM forces during the standoff.

“Indeed,” Stockman wrote, “the exact type of crisis that the federal government has provoked at the Bundy ranch is the very type of incident that Congress knew could be avoided by relying on local law enforcement officials.”

The stated purpose of the correspondence is for the Obama administration “to bring the BLM into compliance with 43 U.S.C. section 1733.”

Absent a full investigation into the agency’s actions, he concluded, “the federal government must not only stand down, but remove all federal personnel from anywhere near the Bundy ranch.”

As for Sheriff Gillespie, he’s either a ball-less coward and/or he’s been paid off (or threatened)and is now part of this attempt for the Govt to sieze this land for those corrupt Reid brother BASTARDS POS’s.

In response, Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman sent a letter to Barack Obama, Department of the Interior Sec. Sally Jewell, and BLM Director Neil Kornze, laying out his position that any such action by the agency would violate the U.S. Constitution.

Fox News reported 2 days back that the BLM hired a Utah Cowboy [=Rustler, IMHO ] and he was paid > $900,000 to invade, roundup, steal and transport the bulk of Bundy’s cattle to Utah to be sold at auction.

Fox News also reported that the BLM paid >$300,000 to a Utah auctioneer to auction off Bundy’s Cattle, in Utah.

_______________

So many names apply to very late stage senility patient Harry Reid, and his hired guns:

Reid’s Rustlers
Reid’s Cattle Rustlers
Feudal Lord Reid’s Raiders.

Feudal Lord Reid of the Bureau of Feudal Land Management wants to make Nevada his personal Fief!

Holder had his glory days with “Fast and Furious” and escaped with an Exec. Order from his Chicago ‘Hood pal, Barry Soetoro.

Now “Kill the last cows in the Country” Reid wants his 15 minutes of Glory.

Will the cowardly doormat Republican Leadership in the US House even consider holding Reid accountable for the taxpayer-funded slaughter of Nevada Rancher Bundy’s cattle?

Neighboring Arizona US Senator “Wacko Bird” McCain has not yet thrown his full moral weight of approval to Senate Classmate Reid, but it could happen any day now.

Doesn’t the ACLU, or PIETA have a “beef” with the taxpayer-paid slaughter of Rancher Bundy’s personal Cattle?

Or will Feudal Lord Reid and his hired Rustlers get bailed out by another Executive Order from the infamous pen of “You Lie” Obama?

Feudal Lord Reid and “You Lie” Obama, a dastardly duo on the Democrat dung heap of History!

MOOOOOOOOOOVE………. FORWARD !

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we will ultimately find that these lawless unconstitutional, un-American, Marxist/fascist policies spring from the very top levels of our national government, and their high crimes and treason are aided and abetted by by many of our corrupt Democrat Senators and congressmen. Perhaps even some of our federal judges. Heads need to roll.

Man the phones, send the letters!

Racketeering, bribery, corruption, high crimes and treason!!

Time to impeach, recall, expel, vote out, remove, indict (on RICO charges, try, convict and incarcerate!!

Absent a full investigation into the agency’s actions, he concluded, “the federal government must not only stand down, but remove all federal personnel from anywhere near the Bundy ranch.”

After the tasing and knock down incidents, if not before, Gov. Sandoval should have ordered all Feds from the area by nightfall and instructed Gillespie to arrest any of them found afterward. The guy would have been a hero and (temporarily) mentioned as a potential candidate for President. Instead, he shuffled his feet.

As for Sheriff Gillespie, he’s either a ball-less coward and/or he’s been paid off (or threatened)

Were it that simple. The guy came from the Southern Poverty Law Center (Libs on steroids) and is just a lapdog for the Democrats. Las Vegas, knowing all this, still voted him in.

Nevada residents should swarm outside Gillespie’s office (peacefully of course) and demand he kick the Feds out of Nevada should they return.

I’m proud of Steve Stockman but most of us knew that the BLM had no business being armed up like the military in the first place nor did they have any business making an incursion into the State of Nevada.

Most of our legislators are lawyers they all should have known this and been speaking out. What about a Repulican Gov just letting these thugs walk into his state and do what they will. The whole thing was unbelievable. And they wonder why the militia showed up.

I said there was a reason why you were not seeing the FBI and the US Marshals.

The Rancher needs to Sue the BLM for violating his Constitutional rights and abuse of authority under the color of law and so should anyone there that was moved, tasked or ordered to do anything by them! They should also sue the Wrangler the BLM paid to steal and kill his Cattle.

Looks like Cliven just won the Lottery.

.....”Absent a full investigation...(which will not happen and if it does will take years) into the agency’s actions, he concluded, “the federal government must not only stand down, but remove all federal personnel from anywhere near the Bundy ranch.”........

First I’m tired of hearing Politicians cry out “The Constitution doesn’t allow this or that”......all these groups from the EPA and outward couldn’t care what the Constitution says, they are protected as much as this administration, so they continue to act as thugs and there’s simply no mechanism in place to stop them that is effective or quick enough to bring these in line with the Constitution.

Fromm what Stein said...the EPA threatened suit of the BLM if they didn’t carry out what the courts had determined...and that branch is directly under the state department and Holder.

So who is really calling the shots here??? Who gave the order for the BLM to go in as they did is still not clear. I’d like to know ‘who’ ordered it...and where the pressure came from to do so.

Speculating that Reid and his strong arm thugs in the Whitehouse did just that.

A quick background as to why the BLM should not be harassing Cliven Bundy. This issue goes all the way back to the Confederation Papers, prior to the writing of our US Constitution.

Please remember that the Supreme Court has reversed more than 150 of earlier Supreme Court decisions on natural law. Is that what you would consider as someone being consistent and reliable in interpreting the Constitution?

The Resolution of 1780, "the federal trust respecting public lands obligated the united States to extinguish both their governmental jurisdiction and their title to land that achieved statehood."

In the Constitutional Convention of 1787, The Charter of Liberty contained these words, "The new Federal Government is an agent serving the states.", "The delegated powers are few and defined", "All powers not listed are retained by the states or the people", "The Resolution of 1780 formed the basis upon which Congress was required to dispose of territorial and public lands", "All laws shall be made by the Congress of the United States". (not agency bureaucrats!)

That should be sufficient for you to determine who all public lands belong to, hint - NOT the Federal Government!

"The Constitution is a written instrument. As such, it's meaning does not alter. That which it meant when adopted. it means now". So said the Supreme Court in South Carolina v United States in 1905

Articles of Confederation, Article VI, clause 1 All engagements entered into before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation. In Article IX "... no State shall be deprived of territory for the benefit of the United States."

Formation of a "more perfect union" does not absolve that union of prior engagements, including those obligations establish by the resolution of 1780 and the Articles of Confederation.

Our government system is established by compact, not between the Government and the State Governments but between the States as Sovereign Communities. By James Madison 1821 (This is what make the County Sheriffs the highest law enforcement officer in that County and gives him/her the authority to tell the BLM, the FBI or any other Federal Agency to get out of the County or they will be arrested and jailed.)

What I have written here is but a short piece of the process that the Founder went through to establish our Constitution and system of government.

Please view these videos and see if they don't change your mind about whether or not Cliven Bundy is in the wrong by defying the BLM.

1of3 Stephen Pratt speaking to Sheriffs at WSSA conference

2of3 Stephen Pratt speaking to Sheriffs at WSSA conference

3of3 Stephen Pratt speaking to Sheriffs at WSSA conference

Here's one that shows why the Sheriff of Clark County is duty bound to keep the BLM and all Federal agents from arresting Cliven Bundy.

Steven Pratt, Bound by Oath to Support THIS Constitution,

Agree on all, but glad to see “one of the club” finally speaking out on it.

The abusive, insanely disproportionate police actions that we are starting to see is something the feds are modeling and promoting. This has to be attacked head on as the - quite literally - police state that it has become. Much longer and no one, not even elected officials or judges, will dare to criticize it, much less confront it.

“I said there was a reason why you were not seeing the FBI and the US Marshals.”

Yes, you did. :)

But Jim, Stein said it was the EPA group that threatened to sue BLM if they didn’t carry out the courts order on Bundy’s ranch. So who ordered them to do so, and who put the pressure on to do so?

As said, this is possibly where Reid and his strong arm thugs in Washington came into play. And if there is an investigation , as was before on Reids strong arming, Holder can again stop it.

“The most complete data is from the Beaver Dam Mountains. Woodbury and Hardy reported a tortoise population density of 150 per square mile in 1948. BLM reduced cattle grazing a few years later and eliminated cattle in 1970. Coombs reported a tortoise density of 39 per square mile in 1974. In these 26 years cattle use was reduced 100 percent and tortoise numbers were reduced 74 percent.

“These tortoises were doing so poorly a veterinarian, Dr. Jarchow, was consulted. He reported all six specimens were suffering from osteoporosis caused by a protein deficiency in their diet. Dr. Jarchow examined five specimens from the same mountains that shared their range with cattle. He reported these specimens were all healthy and well nourished.

“The historical record proves conclusively that tortoise thrive when cattle are on the range with them and without cattle grazing they are always malnourished and unhealthy and their numbers plummet.

LMAO. That is quite the picture of a corrupt senator that I have ever seen.

I pray every day that God will thump this highly treasonist government we have in offices.

Why are not Senators and US Representative asking for the immediate resignation of the Reids (Harry and his son from the BLM). With the resignation denial of pension and lifetime medical care. make the criminals pay. I know I may be deluded, but the US Congress critters need to stand up once and for all.

We have won a battle—not the war. The foes of freedom will re-group and come again. Maybe in the dark of night or with a drone. Their will is that this family needs to vanish so the land can be better used. They will not let the Tea Party stand in the way of Progress. They have the Law on their side—they say. We have what is right. This fight would never happen in Texas. We need an armed arm of the Tea Party—The Sons of Liberty—men willing to stand firm in the face of tyranny.

This is what we have become. A tyrannical system that is being run by the party that says “they are for the people”.
This is what happens when we have a nothing education system. Teach that leftist crap to the low brows and they have no clue of reality.
