Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who touched off one armed showdown with federal authorities and applauded another started in Oregon by his sons, was arrested late Wednesday at Portland International Airport and faces federal charges related to the 2014 standoff.
Bundy, 74, was booked into the downtown Multnomah County Jail at 10:54 pm.........

What happened to the four at the refuge? There was the live stream on YouTube, but now it’s just recorded from earlier.
The live stream was shut down about 1am eastern with the FBI promising to hold off and not take any aggressive action.
The threat of imminent attack or violence subsided.
I guess they decided to back down because the Bundy arrest was imminent in Portland which would have riled up the four people at the refuge even more.
I doubt that the four even know Cliven was arrested, unless the Feds decided to tell them.
Good. These wingnuts are doing incalculable damage to the conservative cause.
Anarchism is not a conservative value.
Bundy flies up there to join in with the occupiers and it's the FBI that's escalating?
You’re on the wrong site, newb! Go back DU.
Some may have said that, but the more likely correct statement is that the FBI can’t indict or bring an information. Sometimes arrest precedes indictment (little people), other times it follows indictment, if it happens at all (US royalty class).
They double escalated because they are afraid of Cliven Bundy with the assault at the refuge and his arrest.
He stepped off an airplane at the airport, a 70 plus year old man.
He didn’t come to Oregon leading a thousand man militia army, now did he???????
I don’t call people fighting for their land “wingnuts”. There’s your dead give-away, Libtard.
Cliven Bundy is wanted on federal charges and he walks right into their hands. I think "fear" was the last thing on their minds. More like "what an idiot".
He didnât come to Oregon leading a thousand man militia army, now did he???????
Very few federal fugitives lead armies. But they get arrested sooner or later.
The only problem with that narrative is that it is NOT their land and NEVER was. These wingnuts invaded another state and seized Federal property. This is not land that was confiscated from private owners. Before you start spouting off in defense of armed anarchists try checking the facts first.
Not worth my time talking to a Lib. You have no clue as to what's really going on in this country with farmers/ranchers.
What is a Conservative value?
Charged with opposing the government.
“seized Federal property”
Seized? Did they take it somewhere and hide it? Did they deny people the right to use it?
I think you mean “occupied”.
You know. Pro-choice, pro-Global Warming, pro-Obama.
Yeah. They were just biding their time. I knew that they were going to kill him, I just did not know when. Now that they have him, they can kill him at their leisure. He can have an “accident, commit suicide by hanging himself with an FBI Agent pulling on each leg, or be shot trying to escape. The ways the FBI Agents can amuse themselves by killing him are endless.
We have more than our share on this forum that are applauding them and cheering them on also.
Liberal, hell... I was just over on AR15.com. So much boot polish being sucked down over there it’s disgusting...
