U.S. Officials End Tense Standoff Between Nevada Rancher, Federal Government

Earlier this week, the decades-long battle escalated when protesters confronted federal agents attempting to roundup Cliven Bundy’s approximately 900 “trespass cattle.”

Bundy does not own the land and has refused to pay grazing fees since 1993, contending he doesn’t recognize the federal government’s claim to the property.

“Historically, ranchers would let their cattle graze on public land, and the government didn’t stop them,” Jeremy Hudia, an Ohio attorney familiar with the legal claims being made, explained to TheBlaze in an email. “Back in the 1930s, however, the land was being harmed by all the uncontrolled grazing. So laws were passed to create a permit process to control the amount of grazing.”

“There is no ‘right’ to use public land for one’s personal gain,” he added. “If that were the case, I would start drilling for oil in Yosemite National Park.”

“I have raised cattle on that land, which is public land for the people of Clark County, all my life. Why I raise cattle there and why I can raise cattle there is because I have preemptive rights,” Bundy told TheBlaze Monday. “Who is the trespasser here? Who is the trespasser on this land? Is the United States trespassing on Clark County, Nevada, land? Or is it Cliven Bundy who is trespassing on Clark County, Nevada, land? Who’s the trespasser?”

“I have raised cattle on that land, which is public land for the people of Clark County, all my life.”

In 1998 the federal government said the land was off-limits to cattle, in an effort to morph the property into a habitat for an endangered tortoise. Bundy has refused to leave the area, despite a court order.

This week a tense standoff ensued as federal agents attempted to round up his cattle. Protesters, many driving from far distances, flocked to the area to support Bundy.

In one incident, captured on video, the rancher’s son was struck by a stun gun as his sister was pushed to the ground.

The controversy forced Nevada’s Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval to comment on the matter. He said he was “disturbed” by the First Amendment zones established by officials to prevent protests from spreading all over the land.

“To that end, I have advised the BLM that such conduct is offensive to me and countless others and that the ‘First Amendment Area’ should be dismantled immediately,” Sandoval said. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans. The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”

The Militarizing of Homeland Security against…who? Whats next, Martial Law?

Why is our government stocking up on massive amounts of

Hollow-Point Ammunition?

Department of Homeland Security: 1.2 billion .40-caliber JHP

National Weather Service: 46,000 .40-caliber JHP

Social Security Administration: 174,000 .357 JHP

Remember jacketed hollow points (JHP) are a type of bullet that is intended to inflict the most damage to flesh of any bullet type.

hollowpointammo340x235jpg-2373196_p9
International Law – The full metal jacket round which is all the military shoots, and is also sold as surplus, is not designed to kill. The Hague and Geneva Conventions prohibit shooting humans with hollow point or expanding ammunition because that type was designed to cause as much trauma as possible.

In addition, the DHS is buying massive amounts of AR-15’s. The DHS description of the weapon in the purchase order is, “Personal Defense Weapon”. It is interesting that they do not refer to the AR class weapon as an “Assault Weapon” in their purchase.

426426_608462039168745_1984406109_n

Why would the Department of Homeland Security need these types of Vehicles on American streets?

 Who is our Government Arming up against?

I think the handwriting is on the wall for all to see should they choose to do so.  Declaring a State of Emergency or Martial Law is all but a stroke of the pen away with this President and don’t think he would not love to do it.  He stated himself that

“If he could be a Dictator”

he could do what he needs to do.  Would that be the…

“Fundamental Transformation of America”?

600327_612903245391291_141654841_n

One only has to add 1+1=2. The Government is arming themselves to the teeth with assault rifles, ammo, and armored personal carriers all the while trying to Disarm the Population.

It just can’t get anymore clear then that folks!

Martial Law is coming…

New Nationwide FEMA Internment Camps Should Raise Some Eyebrows

Hat Tip to American Thinker for this Article

By Alan P. Halber

Of all the Rumors Flying Around on the Internet, one just Refuses to Die, and it Concerns

America’s FEMA CAMPS

In a nutshell, there seems to be a solicitation of bids occurring for the staffing of FEMA camps within 72 hours of implementation by an order from either Homeland Security or the president.  This situation begs to be investigated, with special consideration paid to the motives of the present administration.

I went to the source, the FedBizOpps.gov, and searched for the solicitation number HSFEHQ-10-R-0027, titled National Responder Support Camp.

 A search of the history of the amendments to this Solicitation for Contract showed that it had been modified several times, with the last modification — number 0008, with an original date of letting out to bid with a synopsis of May 13, 2011 — occurring on December 16, 2011.  This last modification rescinded the solicitation, with said modification’s purpose noted as follows:

 1. Cancel Solicitation HSFEHQ-10-R-0027.

2. A new draft solicitation will be issued on January 2012 for industry comment.

3. A Pre-Solicitation Conference will be held approximately two week post draft solicitation.

 Okay…score one for the internet and the vigilant citizens who perform an invaluable service to our nation by monitoring the actions of our government and its various agencies.

 I began the laborious task of reading the Invitation to Bid — this tome is 116, pages with many canned and boilerplate requirements for doing business with Uncle Sam duly enshrined amongst the pages.  The Task Order Request (TOPR) under Scenario I & II under Section J of the Appendix made for another 42 pages.  The required size of the camps was fluid, though they had the required capacity of 301 to two thousand, including security and camp cadre.

 The staffing requirements or cadre for FEMA personnel for these camps — which are identified as being located in five (5) distinct regions throughout and within the borders of the USA, with camps located in each and every state — was three to fifteen each.  The size of these camps will vary around 5 acres per 1,000 inhabitants, though they will never be less than 3 acres for populations of 500 or fewer inhabitants within the camps’ boundaries.

 This requirement also had a minimum square footage for each inhabitant: either the camp’s cadre and first responders of 63 square feet, or approximately 8 feet on each side.  This is slightly less than current Federal Court(s) requirements for housing prisoners, which is approximately 72 square feet.  Perimeter fencing or barricades is required to be six feet high, enclosing the camp, with all traffic in or out to be recorded on a daily log and with security restricting all traffic and access.  The contractor shall also provide fencing and barricades around areas which are “off limits” to occupants.  ID Badges are required and are either blue or red, depending on the carrier is temporary or considered an occupant of the camp.

 The first of several anomalies in the solicitation for bid was in the contractor staffing requirements, which puzzlingly required staff to be fully operational within 72 hours.  Furthermore, “[w]henever practical, displaced citizens will be given the first opportunities for employment within the camp, assuming skills and capabilities are pertinent for the open positions.”

 This led me to question the stated purpose of these camps, considering that the successful contractor would need to have personnel ready to go on such short notice, with notification from FEMA, Homeland Security, or the president within 72 hours.  So the question arises: how could the camp utilize “displaced citizens” in the initial staffing unless the contractor knew where and when a disaster, man-made or otherwise would occur beforehand?

 Another anomaly was the requirement that the “off limits” area was to be enclosed before anything else:

 The contractor shall also provide fencing and barricades around areas which are “off limits” to occupants. Fencing and barricades are required within 36 hours for “phased” setup timeframes, and 72 hours for the rest of the initial setup timeframe.

 Next question: just what is this “off limits” area to be used for, since the bid proposal specified only two (2) classes of occupants of the camp — temporary or occupant as first responder?  Furthermore, it indicates that there may be a camp within the camp, or an area that is to be utilized by another group that is not revealed in the bid solicitation…your guess is as good as mine.  Most Americans would not like the ambiguity of this area’s function!

 Another question arose on the Term of the Contract (F.3), which reads as follows:

 The contract shall be effective as of the execution date of the base contract, and shall continue up to five years if all four one-year options are exercised, except that delivery orders placed prior to the expiration date shall remain in full force and effect until deliveries have been completed and payments, therefore, have been made. The final delivery order shall not exceed two years.

 The nature of the duration seems to belie a long-term use for these camps, which is also not fitting the transitory nature of natural disasters, with most communities being habitable again after a relatively short period of time.  We’re talking months, not years.

 Under the Principal Place of Performance (F.4), this solicitation implies that all of the areas outlined below must be staffed:

Homeland Security USA

Homeland Security USA (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 The effort required under this contract shall be performed in the United States. Task Orders will designate the exact locations where services will be provided. The five (5) areas of coverage are broken down as follows:

Area 1: Includes the states of CT, DC, DE, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, PA, VT, NY, WV, VA, RI

Area 2: Includes the states of KY, TN, MS, AL, GA, SC, NC, FL

Area 3: Includes the states of CO, IA, IL, IN, KS, MI, MN, MO, MT, ND, NE, OH, SD, UT, WI, WY

Area 4: Includes the states of AR, LA, NM, OK, TX

Area 5: Includes the states of AZ, CA, ID, NV, OR, WA

The language is specific in that all requirements are performed in the United States.  However, the language does not specify that it would be a phased approach or even a localized area that experiences a natural disaster — simply the entire nation.

 In the Task Order Proposal Request, there is a specific requirement for large vehicle parking:

 Special Requirements:

- Outsized Vehicle Parking within Security Area (> 2.5 ton vehicles): Estimate required space and add to acreage requirement.

- Outsized vehicle parking outside security area (> 2.5 ton vehicles): Estimate required space and add to acreage requirement.

- Mission Support Work Area(s): Minimum square footage, Accessibility

 These requirements suggest that the type of vehicle(s) will be either solely high-occupancy (i.e., buses) or large trucks or heavy equipment combined with buses.  The interesting point about this section is that the authors allude to a “Security Area” and an “Unsecured Area” with no specific requirements coming forth.

 To sum up: the solicitation to bid for the staffing of FEMA camps within 72 hours is a curious proposition, since it appears to predict a calamity that will affect the entire nation simultaneously –completely unlike a location-specific natural disaster. 

 This may be nothing more than a preparedness exercise by Homeland Security to see if anyone besides the military would be able to meet these stringent requirements for rapid deployment.  However, what I found most striking was the “off limits” areas within each camp and staffing with “displaced persons” and the “Mission Support Work Area(s),” all undefined.   As citizens, we need to know the exact purpose of these camps, given President Obama’s propensity to bend our constitutional republic to his own purposes!

YES, YES THEY CAN!

RED DAWN: Russian Paratroopers to Invade CIA and Denver International Airport in War Games with US Troops

Russian Troops to Engage

US Troops on US Soil

From The Blaze we read:

Government Report: Russian Troops to ‘Seize’ CIA Facility in Elaborate War Game… on U.S. Soil

According to reports, the U.S. and Russian military will be engaging in an anti-terrorism exercise that will involve Russian paratroopers using U.S. weapons to “take and hold” the main facilities of the CIA and Denver International Airport in Colorado and the National Security Agency in Utah.

(Related: Learn about the hypothetical ‘war games’ the U.S. and China have been playing)

The European Union Times has more on the report announcing this exercise from the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation:

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Colonel Alexander Kucherenko publically announced this 24-21 May “anti-terror drill” this Friday past noting that this will be the first time Russian airborne forces have held exercises with the US airborne forces on US territory. Colonel Kucherenko stated, “According to the exercise scenario, soldiers of the two countries will hold a tactical airborne operation, including the reconnaissance of imaginary terrorists’ camp and a raid. After the operation, a helicopter will evacuate the soldiers.” He further added that Russian airborne troops would be training with US special service weapons in these drills in Fort Carson, Colorado.

Puzzling to Russian military analysts about this exercise, this report says, are that according to the American plans, Russian airborne troops (using US weapons that they had previously trained with at Fort Carson) will fly to and then parachute from their planes having the objectives of seizing the CIA’s main computer facility in Denver, the NSA’s main computer facility in Bluffdale, Utah, and taking control of main runways and terminals of the Denver International Airport.

The purpose of seizing the Denver International Airport, this report continues, is for the evacuation of the key personal and equipment previously “freed” from the CIA’s Denver base, and the NSA’s base in Utah, who were, supposedly, under “imminent threat” from an unspecified enemy, according, that is, to the American scenario for this war game.

Also interesting to note, this report says, is that this entire exercise will be overseen by the “drone army” owned and operated by the University of Colorado who have over the past few years has applied for and obtained over 100 Certificate of Authorization’s (COA) from the US government to fly their pilotless surveillance aircraft for reasons still as yet unknown.

(Related: Where are the 63 drone sites approved by the FAA in the U.S.?)

Worth noting is Russia earlier this week launched military exercises in collaboration with the Chinese navy. 

Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said the six days of drills, which began Sunday, feature simulated anti-aircraft, anti-submarine and search-and-rescue operations, including electronic countermeasures and other sensitive technologies.

Retired major general Yin Zhuo said it shows a high degree of trust between the sides.

“It’s an excellent exchange for China to be able to drill jointly in such sensitive areas,” Yin told CCTV.

China’s Defense Ministry said China was sending two submarines and 16 ships to take part, including destroyers, escort vessels and hospital ships. The deputy chiefs of the countries’ navies oversaw the start of drills in the northeastern Chinese port of Qingdao, the home of China’s northern fleet.

The U.S. and the Philippines are also engaging in war games, a drill which Reuters reports China saying last week would raise potential confrontation.

The Blaze has reached out to the CIA and the University of Colorado to confirm the reports and gain more insight into the potential exercise. We will update this story with any response we receive.

Update: A spokesperson with the University of Colorado-Denver has responded to The Blaze saying they have not heard of such an exercise where drone technology operated by the university would be used. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Business Insider notes this is the first time the Russian military will have been invited onto U.S. soil for a military drill.

ONE HAS TO WONDER

Is President Obama giving the Russians/Chinese an opportunity to practice for the real thing?

THINK ABOUT IT

Update

This is disturbing on so many levels that I don’t even know where to start. As we speak Russia and China are conducting War Games at Sea on a level never before seen.

Russian Troops have never before been invited on American Soil for War Games and you can bet they would never allow US Troops on their Soil for any kind of War Games.

The Main Stream Media has yet to report on this and yet the Department of Defense has confirmed these exercises are to take place in May.

The Tyranny of Intimidation from Grumpy Opinions Blog

The Tyranny of Intimidation

There was at time in this country when we were actually free. When the Constitution and other founding documents had meaning and relevance. When the men and women who died fighting wars, knew that they were dying for something precious.

That does not exist anymore!

Our freedoms have been under attack for many years, starting with the progressive movement and their desire to put their will upon the people and enslave them. We have seen the results of similar actions in the former U.S.S.R. and communist China under Mao. The very leaders that so many in our current government seem to idolize. Their policies led to the horrific killings of millions. That is the way it always ends up in tyranny’s. We have only to look at North Korea, Libya and Syria to see the evidence in our modern history.

But it has escalated in the past eleven years with the passing of the Patriot Act. It gave the government increased power to harass and intimidate the American people all in the name of keeping us free. It was a time when we were vulnerable and willing to accept that the government was actually interested in doing what they were in power to do. Protect and serve! Unfortunately, their true desires were more along the lines of taking away the very freedoms that we have taken for granted since our founding.

And now under this administration, they are hanging by a thread!

We have discover that the ones that the government are interested in protecting others from, are not the ones who are actually attempting, and often succeeding, in doing us real harm. No, the ones that the government is interested in stopping, is us. Patriots who exercise their rights of free speech, freedom of religion, freedom to gather, and especially those that exercise their right to bear arms.

Patriots who served this country. Who fought for the freedoms that we have taken for granted, are being harassed by the very government that is supposed to protect those rights. They are often picked up and questioned for hours and sometimes days, on the flimsiest of excuses. They are informed that their every word and deed are being watched. They are quite frankly intimidated. Often they are never charged with a crime, because quite frankly they have not committed one.

And yet, by the very actions of such hostile people toward those who want nothing more that to protect this very country, we are losing more and more. It is easy to say that we would stand tall and not let the government tell us what to do. That is not hard when we are passionate people and know our rights. But what happens when you are informed that not only are they watching you and listening to what you say and do, but that they are watching your family and your friends? And that everything you say and do in any forum is being listened and read, and that you can not even warn those who would speak out that they are being monitored?

This is what is happening to many Americans right at this moment. Some of them are our friends and they can not even tell us. Suddenly, it is not just your own freedom on the line, it is all those that you love and care about. And you are not free to warn them, explain why you are not talking like you used to. Or why you are scared. Intimidation!! Pure and simple intimidation, and not for a crime, but simply because those in power do not like the fact that you have spoken up against their actions and policies.

This is where we are now!

A place that I, for one, never foresaw that this country could become. While we were busy fighting tyranny and communism across the world, we were being infiltrated by those that admired those very policies. They were busy taking our liberties away slowly, one by one, until, finally, they have reached the point where there is little chance of returning this country to what it was. I pray that God really and truly wants this country to be what our founders wanted it to be! Because the next year will tell us if we will retain any of our freedoms or whether we will have lost them, perhaps forever! God, please bless this United States of America!

MEET THE PREPPERS: Perhaps We Should All Be Following Their Lead?

Meet the ‘Preppers’ —

The Americans Stockpiling Food & Water for a Possible Collapse

From The Blaze we read:

The world’s a scary place. Wars, famines, corrupt politicians, terrorism, imploding economies — the list goes on. There are plenty of issues worth fearing, which is why a subset of the nation is preparing for what they see as impending calamity.

These individuals, dubbed “preppers,” are stocking up on food, guns, water and other items that they may need should the economy erupt or a massive natural disaster strike. With so many possibilities for problematic occurrences, these individuals want to ensure that they can live beyond any tragically defining moments.

Most preppers are fearful of the prospects of no governmental structure — something that some see as a possibility amidst economic woes and political strife. Back in 2009, a Newsweek report described this phenomenon:

In the late 1990s, Y2K fears brought survivalism to the mainstream, only to usher it back out again when disaster didn’t strike. (Suddenly, unused survival gear began showing up in classifieds and on eBay.) A decade later, “preppers” are what you might call survivalism’s Third Wave: regular people with jobs and homes whose are increasingly fearful about the future…

Watch some preppers discuss their lifestyle, below:

Reuters published a report this weekend, highlighting some of the preppers out there who are stockpiling and awaiting what they see as the inevitable. To begin, there’s Patty Tegeler, a 57-year-old who lives in Virginia’s Appalachian Mountains.

“In an instant, anything can happen,” she said. “And I firmly believe that you have to be prepared.”

Tegeler’s home has essentially been prepared for whatever may come. She has a large generator, water tanks, portable heaters and enough freeze-dried food to lock herself inside and to keep nourished for two years.

Click here to find out more!

Wondering how she secured these items? There’s an entire market that caters to these individuals (most vendors operate on the internet). These companies sell many of the items that Tegeler has in her own home, as they teach skills or sell the products needed to ensure individual and family survival pending disaster.

The Reuters article even mentions Glenn Beck:

Conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck seems to preach preppers’ message when he tells listeners: “It’s never too late to prepare for the end of the world as we know it.”

Additionally, it goes on to further explain the movement:

“With our current dependence on things from the electric grid to the Internet, things that people have absolutely no control over, there is a feeling that a collapse scenario can easily emerge, with a belief that the end is coming, and it is all out of the individual’s control,” [Cathy Gutierrez, an expert on end-times beliefs at Sweet Briar College in Virginia] told Reuters.

While many would dub survivalist behaviors as silly or a waste of time, preppers separate themselves from the likes of Harold Camping and other leaders who have set dates for what they promise to be apocalyptic conclusions to societal existence. Preppers like Tegeler claim that their items won‘t go to waste regardless of whether there’s a collapse or not. For these individuals it’s all about being ready for anything that could unfold.

And there’s plenty of media outlets for these individuals to consume, as they share tips and communicate with one another. Blogs like lawyer Michael T. Snider’s “The Economic Collapse” focus upon the themes surrounding the economy’s potential bust.

“Most people have a gut feeling that something has gone terribly wrong, but that doesn’t mean that they understand what is happening,” Snider said. “A lot of Americans sense that a massive economic storm is coming and they want to be prepared for it.”

Then there’s James Wesley Rawles, a former Army intelligence officer, who is behind the “Survival Blog,” an online outlet that preppers regularly read.

“We could see a cascade of higher interest rates, margin calls, stock market collapses, bank runs, currency revaluations, mass street protests, and riots,” he said in an interview with Reuters. “The worst-case end result would be a Third World War, mass inflation, currency collapses, and long term power grid failures.”

Preppers Fear Calamity So They Stock Food, Weapons, Water & More

A screen shot from the American Preppers Network

Tom Martin launched “American Prepper’s Network” back in 2009 — a daily blog and support network that attracts thousands of individuals each week. The most recent post on the site’s blog reads:

Man-made disasters come in many forms. The most obvious would be spills and contamination caused by deteriorating materials, poor driving, train derailments, pipeline maintenance (or lack thereof), infrastructure collapse, policies that lead to coastal erosion, policies that contribute to widespread forest fires, sub-standard building codes, etc. There are other potential disasters that can be even more far-reaching. These include, but not limited to, monetary policies, tax codes, currency issues, stock market crashes, credit down grades, recession/depression, inflation/hyper-inflation (alaWeimar republic) and devaluation of a currency. Venezuela, Japan and others have experienced these events.

The list of possibilities is long and growing, but again, the prudent man attempts to prepare. For his family and his continued well-being.

This is only a small lens into the prepper movement, but this is nothing new. Throughout history, subsets of American society have remained ready and prepared for whatever may come. While critics may dub it an over reaction, preppers feel they’re simply being prudent.

For a glimpse into some others who are “prepping” for the future, be sure to watch GBTV’s “Independence USA” — a reality show featuring a family trying to live off the grid.
