Checked the link on your reply, it is very interesting to say the least. I don't expect the government to give up this easy they have a terrible track record of pushing issues and killing people needlessly. The photo caught my attention with Cliven being escorted by armed militia members. Amazing.

Question 1.
So the question for all the anti-gunner people out there is this. Would this backdown have been possible without 2nd amendment rights?

Question 2.
Why didn't they just drive out and arrest Cliven on day one, and leave the cattle alone for now. This seems in your face like the Waco fiasco when once a week David Koresh went into town and had breakfast, they could have picked him up in town. I think they want this kind of confrontation. This time the militia's are making them think twice. Seems to me anyway.

Evening,

Of course the stand-off is over.
Harry Reid being exposed as a Chinese frontman reveals the illusion of non-fiscal/political collusion between the elites, despite international borders and treaties. They hadda shut it down before the rest of the sheep caught on.
Many will cry out that this is a victory for the people.
Those who have seen this happen before know this is just the calm before the storm.
Bundy need's the support of the people more than ever right now.
I wish I were wrong about this, I really do...

-Peace-

Drudge has the Infowars link on his page at the top "Backdown Comes Hours After Reid/China Land Grab Report..."- if you go to the comments on the Infowars page - uh it doesn't appear this thing is over as of about 5 minutes ago by a long shot.

He is talking about a video of a cellphone, it's a video from yesterday.

Why now? I don't see any reason given in the news for this. I wonder if they realize how bad this makes them look, ending this right after the story about Reid and the Chinese broke.


If this is the case looking bad now would be the least of the worries. Think how bad they would look if they stayed.

I see a bunch of drivel as usual, what are we supposed to be looking for. The idiot steve making claims of cut communications? They were saying that yesterday as well, and it was BS. In fact, I think the dumbass is talking about the "video" from yesterday lol.

It's not over for the Bundys. With unlimited powers and resources and a blank check they will go after them eventually. They are now what is considered a "soft kill" target. Meaning they will defeat the enemy of the government at any cost, by any means necessary, without actually killing them. An example for other uppity freedom loving constitution clinging hard working Americans who dare to challenge the almighty powers that be.

Probably injected his cattle with disease while they were corralled, wouldn't put it past them.

This one at least shows a decent size crowd. No thousand people, a few hundred for sure though in my best estimate. Still looking for the showdown though.


These folks don't look like they give a squat about Bundy having paid his dammed "fees" or not.

This just popped up on FB page - another Ranch in NM being raided.



When Kit Laney answered a knock on his door Saturday, law enforcement officers from the U.S. Forest Service handed him a piece of paper announcing his Diamond Bar Ranch in southwest New Mexico would be shut down Wednesday and his 300 head of cattle grazing there would be removed – one way or the other.

Reminded me of a tailgait football rally. I believe the context is celebrating that they were leaving.

Good for this, hopefully it stays as such. I wonder then if there wasn't support* for Bundy but rather everyone rallying around him not paying BLM(ETA he did pay NV)-"He's bad guy" etc., this may been allowed to go further shut downs raids...more than just taking cattle..., as demonstrated below,

*Support of Politicians, Sheriff, Oath Keepers, social media, volunteers on the ground, ... etc. surely helped. Much appreciation as people need to work together on these issues, not divide!

Put the fire out, convince everyone that all is well. Wait until they are all gone, and then burn it all to the ground.

Figuratively speaking strategy on embers.

My gut reaction with the reid-China connection was water. I know that well water is metered now, to an extent. I believe I heard part of the attraction of this land when it was originally conveyed to Nevada was it had large water resources, that was Bundy's gift.

Under the guise of solar electric, how betcha that power just goes to pump all the fresh water out of the ground and sent to China! Don't believe it could happen? Hmm?

How strange for them to come busting in with all that firepower and gusto only to back out like little girls, because they knew that there was no winning this time! NO,NO,NO!!!! NOT this time. Not on the range! Because, obviously there are some REAL AMERICANS who live there who know their rights and know that they have a right to FIGHT for them too. Thank you for being an example to the rest of us who are having their rights molested by these tyrants. And do you all realize that everyone else lives on the range too? Yes, even those who are surrounded By cement and steel buildings, you live on a range. And that range's name, is FREEDOM.

This update came across FB a couple of hours ago.
Ranch Report

Craig Fordon
"At 1750 hours ET, I was contacted by my source within the Department of Homeland Security regarding the current situation at the Bundy Ranch. To put it bluntly, the people are being hoodwinked into believing that the situation is being resolved. It is not. It is a strategic de-escalation to fool the public. This source stated that the retreat of the BLM agents and the release of the cattle was actually crafted as a potential plan yesterday (Friday, 11 April 2014) based on the following:

1. A military assessment of satellite and drone surveillance imagery of the “patriot resistance. Drones under the control of the U.S. military were in use, taking real-time photographic images of not just the activity at the ranch, but "identifying the protesters, any arms and any supplies they might have or be carrying. “Mission accomplished.”
2. Real-time communication intercepts between patriots on-site and their off-site support;
3. Active monitoring of internet traffic regarding the coverage of events at ranch;
4. The monitoring of real-time video from the scene.

This source stated that a response by the patriot movement was anticipated, although exceeded their expectations. Although this was a real operation, they also ran this as a test case for future government operations once they saw the response. They were also actively managing the media, in some cases threatening to cut off White House access to anyone covering the event.

Despite this, the coverage by the alternative media began to create a public relations problem that was not easily managed. Note the lack of acknowledgment by the White House regarding this event. They are intentionally framing it as a state issue, despite the fact that all federal response has been and continues to be from the White House. There is a reason for this – a reason that has not been identified in any of the public reports to date. I will explain in further detail in a follow-up report on Sunday, after this source attends [redacted] to obtain more specific information about future federal operations. Regardless, according to this source, the government will take back ‘their land’ as they must to fulfill international obligations. It was never about grazing rights or anything other than (1) “securing clear title” to the land, and (2) further demonizing any patriotic resistance. It is my understanding, based on the information from this source, that it is a critical task to create a situation that will also advance their agenda of gun control and confiscation.

A more detailed report will follow on Sunday, 13 April 2014, with additional and much more specific information about their inside plans and future operations.
