Skip to comments.Just In: Obama Accused By Congressman Of Illegal Action At Bundy Ranch
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.
Crime against humanity!! Seize him!!
Excerpts from the article:
Because of this standoff, he wrote, I have looked into BLMs 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 agencys actions, he concluded, the federal government must not only stand down, but remove all federal personnel from anywhere near the Bundy ranch.
I get more infuriated everyday!!
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.
About time these guys started standing up. We have a lawless out of control govt and that is why Americans are being forced to defend themselves.

Bet next we see Obama on tv throwing his compadres under the bus, saying ‘for shame’.
Keep contacting your congress critters, people. It’s working.
Yep, completely agree!
They all need to pronounce loudly if they stand with tyranny or liberty IMMEDIATELY.
Just sent Stockman a big THANK YOU for his letter!
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 Bundys 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 Bundys Cattle, in Utah.
So many names apply to very late stage senility patient Harry Reid, and his hired guns:
Reids Cattle Rustlers
Feudal Lord Reids 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 Bundys 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.
Doesnt the ACLU, or PIETA have a beef with the taxpayer-paid slaughter of Rancher Bundys 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!!
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, hes either a ball-less coward and/or hes 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.
“Do your job Gillespie!”
