Honest question, why are these guys called patriots


The US Constitution is their guiding document...and mine.

What is yours?


Perhaps you and they should read this part then ...



This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.

(Article VI, Clause 2)



Emphasis mine. Words courtesy of James Madison and the Constitutional Convention.


When some people think the laws and lawmakers are bad and/or corrupt, those people will ignore and break the law.

DOMA and DADT were the law of the land at one time. That didn't stop people from ignoring, breaking, or refusing to uphold them.

Going against your government is not patriotism, its called treason.


When the government has committed treason against their own citizens what do you call it?

We The People have a legal right under the Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land to dismantle and remove a Tyrannical government period.


"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."


All amendments passed against the second amendment are none and void.


everyone there should be locked up


Yes, the BLM should be locked up for abusing their power and stealing families land rights.


Why is it that the bundys can get away with taking over government buildings, owing millions of dollars in grazing fees


In the beginning the Bundy's did pay their grazing fees, however the government ( BLM ) decided to raise the grazing fees so high that they forced all but the Bundy ranches out of business and bought all the land parcels at rock bottom basement prices. The BLM is working for several corrupt congressmen who want all that land so THEY can sell it to China who wants to build some kind of energy plant and put a highway across the land.

This is a blatant abuse of power, so the elite in Washington can make huge profits for their self interests.

What the BLM is doing is illegal.


and not to mention trying to go to war with the government,pointing guns and threatening to kill federal agents.


I guess you have not read the Constitution?

What you have been witnessing specially from the Bund Ranch it was the government ( BLM ) that was pointing guns and threatening to kill the Bundy family.

Which is a serous violation of the Constitutions and a serous violation of abusive power.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State and abuse of government power. The militia is needed to push back a tyrannical government when they decided to break the laws and go against their own citizens.


But Edward Snowden leaked information about the government spying on americans and he (Snowden) is the one facing jail time if not worse if he returns to the states.


The only reason Snowden is facing jail time, is because the government LIED to the American people claiming they were NOT spying on us. I believe it was Director of National Intelligence James Clapper falsely denied that the NSA had collected data on millions of Americans. who told congress in a televised hearing when asked the question is the NSA spying on the American people and James Clapper responded and said no.

The US government was embarrassed when Snowden leaked out the documents that it was spying on the American people and some of the corrupt Representatives in Washington wanted revenge against Snowden.


but these bundy hillbilly rejects get to stay free?


Hillbilly or not they are not rejects most of these men have jobs and own business, they are American citizens, who believe in the Supreme Laws of the land under the Constitution.

You should be proud of these brave men.

So when the government breaks the laws and abuses it's power, we Americans should let them, correct?

When your government become Tyrannical, what should Americans do?

If there was any truth to what your claiming, then why aren't these people protesting outside land that has been forcibly brought by the government for mining purposes? They wouldn't even need a gun to do it, just block off the entrance and shut down the mining operation.

Instead, they're occupying a Federal wildlife refuge and demanding the Government allow grazing and logging on it... which I might add, is against the wishes of the majority of locals and even the local native Americans.

I don't have the words to issue an appropriate response. A security operation? Like the Hell's Angels at Altamont?

They should gas the federal building where they're holed up and take them out in chains.

It is a matter of survival for these folks. When people see big ranches they think wealthy people but a lot like any farmer they can lose everything in one or two bad seasons but the BLM is terrorizing these people. Here is a good back story so some people will I hope get a clue.



Do you mind if I place this in a few threads and other places? It kills me when I read people say that these are white supremacists, hope they enjoy the meat they buy in the market and fast food places, and choke on it for all of the white farmers who have fed the world, this country for hundreds of years and longer and for the poor poor sensitive cows, the continued land grab by the nwo.

the very same Constitution and Bill of Rights gives us the green light to overthrow a tyrannical govt...And that is the major reason for the ability to bear (bare) arms , right ? . Of course , you may not. In the above case , ti is neither sedition nor treason. But a right.

Actually , I got that wrong. If you read the works of the founding fathers , it is not a "right" . It is an obligation to every US citizen
Peace

Technically, it's not treason. It's sedition.

Because they are a collection of self aggrandizing idiots. The very fact this collection vandals is allowed to roam around like a bunch of nutters kind ruins the entire idea of a tyrannical government. A tyrannical government would never allowed to media to say they existed and they all would have been killed over night. These are wanna be hero's who prey on the small minded and gullible who praise despite the fact their actions represent everything they claim to be against.

What laws has BLM broken? I'd really like to know.


As for the bundy's Ranch I can answer your question.

Congressman: BLM Broke Law In Bundy Ranch Raid


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) acted illegally when it dispatched armed rangers to remove Cliven Bundy’s cattle from federal land in Clark County, Nevada, a Congressman is charging.

The BLM’s action led to a standoff between armed protestors and authorities that attracted national media attention.

“Because of this standoff, 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,” Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) wrote in a letter to President Obama, the Secretary of the Interior and the Director of the BLM.

Stockman contends that Section 1733 of the United States Code requires the BLM rely on local law enforcement officers to enforce regulations rather than its own rangers. He also alleged that the BLM refused to work with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office in its actions against Bundy.

Sheriff on the Sidelines?

“Under this statute, whenever the Secretary of the Interior determines that force may be necessary to secure obedience to federal law and regulation, the Secretary must seek the cooperation of local law enforcement officials,” Stockman wrote.

Ron Paul Gets Involved

Stockman, who just lost a US Senate primary race in Texas, is not the only prominent politician from that state to take an interest in the Bundy affair. Former Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul is also questioning the BLM’s authority.

In this case it’s who should own the land,” Paul said of the Bundy dispute. The trouble developed because most of the land in Nevada is federally owned and controlled by the BLM. He noted that such disputes would be unlikely in states like Texas where most of the land is privately owned.

“They had virtual ownership of that land because they had been using it,” Paul told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto. The Bundies have been grazing cattle in the area for a century. “I think land should be in the states and they should sell it to the people.”
“You need the government out of it,” Paul said of land ownership. Paul suggested that the federal government transfer all the land in the West to the states.


Paul predicted that there will be more such disputes in the future because he thinks the economy is getting worse. In particular, he believes there will be more disputes between the BLM and ranchers.

Looks like the good Congressman did not really look very hard. Which is probably why nothing came of his claim.

Section 1733:

The Secretary may authorize Federal personnel or appropriate local officials to carry out his law enforcement responsibilities with respect to the public lands and their resources.



Nothing in this Act shall be construed as reducing or limiting the enforcement authority vested in the Secretary by any other statute.

People break the law? Wow, that is surprising.

Your comments really have nothing to do with my point. The Constitution of the UNITED STATES makes the laws of the UNITED STATES superior to ANY STATE. The continual, ignorant argument is that somehow the Constitution empowers States over the Federal Government is the issue, not the fact that people break laws ...

Thanks though for stating the obvious!
