"Breaking: BLM backing down on Bundy ranch stand-off"
The KOmmies are now in a state of deep depression because a free citizen David made the big government Goliath back down. Here is the THREAD, where their gloom is on full display, "Breaking: BLM backing down on Bundy ranch stand-off." A few of the KOmmies early on took some solace from the fact that the government had confiscated Cliven Bundy's cattle. Hee! Hee! Of course that was BEFORE they found out that the BLM cave was complete and all his cattle is being returned. So what was the reason for the BLM standing down so quickly and completely? Part of it has to do with the Second Amendment since in the USA, unlike in Venezuela where government thugs ride around on motorcycles and shoot citizens without a fear of response, just the fact that citizens have the right to bear arms puts a check on the federal government power grabs. However, I think ultimately the complete BLM cave had to do with Harry Reid not wanting the light to continue shining on the fact that he conspired with the Chinese to build a solar factory on the desert tortoise preserve land that Bundy's cattle was grazing on. After all, Reid's former aide now heads the BLM and was making that land grab to enrich Boss Harry. Unfortunately all the publicity caused Boss Harry to panic over being exposed so the stand down was ordered...pronto. And when Cliven Bundy continued to demand the return of his cattle, Boss Harry ordered BLM via his flunkie to cave on that too. Anyhow all this has put the KOmmies into a big funk so let us now watch them moan over this turn of events in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, lighting candles for all those desert tortoises that the feds killed in order to protect them, is in the [brackets]:
Breaking: BLM backing down on Bundy ranch stand-off.
The dispute between the Bureau of Land Management, and a Nevada rancher who has failed to pay grazing fees for use of public land under BLM management (well covered in diaries here and here appears to be coming to an end.
[A David vs Goliath ending.]
The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning,
[Break out your hankies, KOmmies!]
According to sources, the BLM wants to proceed with the sale of the cattle already gathered during the roundup but is reportedly willing to share the revenue from the sale with Bundy. Sheriff Gillespie has been negotiating with Bundy behind the scenes for months reached a tentative agreement Friday night, though Bundy insisted the sheriff come to his ranch to finalize the arrangement face-to-face.
[I'm picturing the Bundy ranch as the U.S.S. Missouri with the BLM as the surrendering Japanese.]
“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,” BLM director Neil Kornze said.
[Neil Kornze aka Harry Reid's former aide and current flunkie.]
And now Bundy is really feeling his oats:
Rancher Cliven Bundy demanded of sheriff Doug Gillespie that all narional park service employees working on the cattle roundup operation be disarmed before 10:45 a.m. He gave Gillespie one hour to comply, and added for the firearms to be brought to him. The demand comes on the heels of the Bureau of Land Management pulling the plug on the roundup due to safety concerns.
[LOL! You gotta love that Cliven Bundy. BLM must surrender AND bend over and grab their ankles...NOW! And now to the deeply depressed KOmmies...]
Effectively, the United States has ceded sovereignty over that area to Bundy and a bunch of armed, right-wing lunatics.
[IOW, Harry Reid panicked about his Chinese solar factory/BLM deal being exposed.]
If they do end up selling of his cattle he doesn't exactly come out a total winner on this. It will be interesting to see what the final negotiation is when they announce it.
[The final negotiation was a complete CAVE by BLM. Cliven Bundy gets his cattle back. You may now reach for your L-pill.]
They should definitely share the revenue from the sale of the cattle with Bundy. First they should deduct the expense of rounding up and selling the cattle. Then the remainder should go into an account in Bundy's name. The account could then be frozen and seized to pay the grazing fees that Bundy owes.
[This KOmmie is due to put his head in a plastic bag when he finds out the BLM returned Bundy's cattle. Hee! Hee!]
My guess is they'll have to truck these critters off a few hundred miles -- possibly out of state -- before they'll find some place where people will be inclined to buy them. I'd say 99% chance no one at a local auction would raise a finger to bid on them and leave the BLM high and dry. Will be interesting to see.
[Will be interesting to see your suicide note when you find out what REALLY happened. Hee! Hee!]
He is losing his privilege. In fact, I think I read somewhere that no grazing is allowed on that land anymore.
[After you find out what happens, you will be ready for your lobotomy to ease the depression.]
By not removing the cattle, the BLM is in contravention of the Endangered Species Act and several court orders. Two endangered species are being threatened. Do we just write them off because of what Bundy wants? Why bother trying to protect anything then?
[The Desert Tortoises were so endangered that the Feds had to kill them.]
The government can come back later... and arrest him for obstruction of justice or menacing. Wait for that guy's guard to go down.
[Somehow I don't think Harry Reid wants back into the spotlight on his BLM grazing land scheme.]
These f*cking wingnut teabaggers are pretty much on the verge of armed insurrection. A massive show of force by the government would have been more appropriate. They can't be allowed to attempt to violently overthrow the lawfully established government. If a few wingnuts get killed-so what?
[ALL must be absorbed by the Liberal Borg!]
Hope the IRS nails him
[Paging Lois Lerner!]
I could probably understand this decision... if 2 weeks from now I read an article that a couple hundred militia members who were present in Nevada were arrested at their homes in umpteen different states and charged with interfering with law enforcement. Since that is probably a felony, they could also be charged with using a firearm during the commision of a felony.
[Won't happen. Harry Reid wants the spotlight OFF his solar factory land scheme.]
The BLM just surrendered up 100 of the guy's cattle that they had rounded up. As far as anyone can tell, the reason they did this is because an armed mob was threatening them.
[Thank you for making a great case for the Second Amendment.]
He's demanding the feds disarm, and his armed supporters are heading out to "free" his cattle.
[Hate to break it to you but his cattle WERE freed.]
This is really pissing me off. How dare these treasonous thugs be allowed to threaten the U.S. government? I don't care about Waco. F*ck them! It's time to send in the cavalry and place these traitors under arrest and shoot anybody who refuses to surrender. Damn. How. Dare. They?
[KOmmie Little Lulu is certainly an angry little collectivist.]
Wait... They released the cattle they HAD rounded up? W. T. F.
[A KOmmie awakens to some really SAD reality. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!]
Interesting the BLM backed down after the rumors of Harry Reid and/or friends being involved in some kind of "house of cards" style deal to build solar farms on the land hit the RW tubes. I have no idea what the rumors are really about or if there is any truth to them. But the timing is interesting.
[A Kewpie Doll is awarded to this KOmmie for have a brief moment of mental clarity!]
This makes me so angry I can barely articulate it. I think they should just shoot the cattle where they stand on public land. Let Bundy watch his herd get butchered for his recalcitrance. Also- send in more armed federal agents. This man is stealing, and defying the will of law. And these ignorant fool militias are abetting that.
[An L-pill will ease your mental anguish.]
