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.”

A small word but a powerful one when it comes to your privacy.

 

What gives the federal government the right to impose itself upon you if you have done no wrong ?

 

Many people take the opinion that they haven’t broken any law.

 

Many say that they have committed no crimes.

 

With today’s government,…can you be sure ?

 

My response to those comments are,…by who’s rules?

 

Children that are suspended from school for forming a gun with their hand.

 

Or for eating a pop tart into the shape of a gun.

 

All the while, teachers, men and women, are engaging in sex with the students that they are paid to educate by the parents that have no choice but to put their children in their care.

 

All of this is happening amidst the desecration of the Christian voice striving to speak out against it.

 

The gay community, the abomination, continues to grab the headlines on our news channels.

 

The LGBT has infested our Military, and yet we allow it to proceed.

 

America, what have we become ?

 

Are you willing to accept this ?

 

Aren’t you willing to take a stand and say NO MORE !

 

Take heed my friends, for the task that we must undergo is at hand.

 

Go out there and VOTE for OUR Country, and Her survival in the choppy seas that She is immersed in.

 

Right now, the rudder is in the wrong hands.

1462944_10151866030167740_214891267_n

We need to wrench those hands off the rudder and put this ship back on course.

 

Back on the course that the Constitution set.

Voting American Proudly Presents the Libslayer Unleashed!

obamanation_jon-mcnaughton_4-620x339Hat tip to Libslayer for this commentary

477688585ac2f4aebd5363e32c3f08f4I have a dog…..great opening statement eh? But seriously I really do have a dog. He’s a chocolate lab and is the result of my breeding efforts a few years ago. I’ve been offered as much as $800 for him which is pretty impressive beings how I never registered the last litter. His mom came from the King Ranch and his father from DFW area. All that being said I gotta say he’s extremely intelligent and very mild mannered. I had him obeying hand signals by 16-20 weeks of age. Now I’m gonna backtrack to about 8 weeks of age. Fer some reason (can’t remember why now) our kennel disappeared, so Caleb spent the first few months of his life on a leash. I wasn’t being cruel I was just managing him when his exuberance needed to be curbed. What I didn’t realize is that I was mentally conditioning him to respect the leash. I didn’t catch it till Caleb was over a year old and my wife was cleaning the house so she put him on the leash and put the leash on the door handle of the back door to keep him off the wet floors. Well we fergot all about him and left to go to the store. When we returned to the house Caleb was in the kitchen right where we left him lying on the floor, leash still attached to him but my wife never attached it to the door. I was amazed and intrigued so I performed a series of tests, all with the same results. Once the leash was on him he absolutely wouldn’t move. He’d just lay down and wait to be released. Doggone it if I hasn’t brainwashed my poor dog. Now as the years progressed he eventually learned to decipher whether the leash was actually attached to something or not. And now he remains steadfast because he loves and respects me, not because he is a slave to the leash.

jon-mcnaughtons-forgotten-manAs I pondered this predicament the other day I came to the conclusion that Americans are conditioned in much the same way. Out freedoms and liberties have been eroded our from under us over the years yet we don’t really move around much because after all, the government has everything under control and we can trust them. Well I reckon it’s about time fer us to experience what it’s like to get that leash from around our necks and start to reclaim our country. And I speak not of anarchy nor treason. I speak of patriotism and activism. We ain’t tied up and we surely ain’t slaves to a corrupt government. The time has come for us to throw off the chains of crooked politicians and inept representatives. We MUST vet our candidates and hold them accountable. There is a lady on Illinois named Manju Goel who has snuck into TeaParty groups claiming to be a conservative yet has voted for Obama TWICE!! How in the heck did she make it through the ‘scrutiny’ of the local chapters? Guys, I’m being serious.

WE MUST BE WISER THAN THE ENEMY AS WE TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY.

Those Wacko Gun Control Activists are at it again!

486114_600661426628077_925954504_n

It is common knowledge that the last two attempts at mass murder were committed using Shot Guns (most likely on the advice of Joe Biden) instead of the Semi-Automatic AR15 or AK47 large capacity clip weapons used in the past.  The gun control advocates have labeled these weapons as ‘Assault Rifles’ but just so you know, they are not. 

Our government has classified an ‘Assault Rifle‘ as one that fires in ‘Fully Automatic‘ mode similar to a Machine Gun.

Well, just when you think you’ve heard it all, Fox News comes up with this latest report!

Gun control advocates vow to take fight into 2014 elections, spend millions

Gun control advocates acknowledged Sunday that they were disappointed with efforts this year to tighten firearm laws across the country but vowed to continue their fight, including spending millions on their candidates in next year’s elections.

Their comments came one year after the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre in which 20 students and six adults were fatally shot in Newtown, Conn. However, Congress failed to pass no major gun-control legislation in the aftermath.

“We get disappointed,” said Mark Kelly, who co-founded the gun-control group Americans for Responsible Solutions with wife Gabrielle Giffords, the former congresswoman who was shot on the campaign trail in 2011.

The retired astronaut and Navy captain told “Fox News Sunday” the defeat of the so-called, bipartisan Manchin-Toomey Senate gun bill was “not a good day” but that his group plans to spend $25 million in the next election cycle.  

Though the focus of America’s gun debate appears to be shifting from weapons bans to keeping firearms away from criminals and the mentally ill, gun-rights advocates seem steadfast in their efforts to limit background checks and repeal laws that prevent people from defending themselves against attackers.

“There’s no victory until we get guns in school and elsewhere to protect ourselves,” Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told Fox News. “The legislation that is on the books is lethal … and we simply have to get rid of them.”

Kelly said that anti-gun groups were able to spend about as much as pro-gun groups in the recent Virginia gubernatorial race in which Democrat Terry McAuliffe defeated Republican Ken Cuccinelli — a sign that the balance of power is shifting after his side got outspent in the Capitol Hill gun debates.

Carlee Soto, whose sister was killed in the Dec. 14, 2012, attack at Sandy Hook elementary, in Newtown, Conn., also acknowledged the effort to tighten gun laws has been difficult, but she remains optimistic.

“Some days I don’t want to speak in front of the camera … but my sister can’t do that,” she told Fox News. “I believe we will have sensible gun laws in the future.”

Is President Obama Naughty or Nice?

Seems the jury is still out on that question with about 51% of the American people who voted for him a second time.

Recent poll numbers indicate a sharp decline in this Presidents approval ratings.

Could these be some of the reasons for that sudden drop?

Massive NSA spying on Americans?

Arming the IRS and DHS better than our own Military?

IRS targeting Conservative Groups?

Illegal AP wiretaps?

Relieving out top Military Commanders?

A President being caught in lie after lie?

BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE EVER!
Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
massiewnd

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous. I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.

I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people.

The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Obama’s arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to not being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent millions of dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today.

He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…

Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”

The Communist Infiltration of America is complete

communist-fist

Do you see what is unfolding right before your very eyes? Do you see the connection of the Obama Administration and Labor Unions with the Communist Party? I would like to think you do and yet I have to ask you.

Where is the Outrage?

marxist-revolution

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is a Marxist-Leninist political party in the United States, established in 1919. As the chief official communist party in the USA for most of the 20th century, it has a long, complex history that is often inter-layered with the simultaneous histories of similar communist parties worldwide, as well as with the U.S. labor movement generallyClick on the link to read the rest of the Article:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Party_USA

As Americans it is time for us to Speak Out on this Outrage and demand the News Media begin reporting the Truth of what is going on in our Country and with our Labor Unions. It is also time for the News Media to begin reporting the Truth on what is going on within the Obama Administration, along with our Government.

socialists

Yes, it is time for the Media to begin to act like Journalists.

Holding them accountable once and for all and forcing them to set aside their Ideologies for the sake of Honest Journalism.

Remember, we have the power to turn them off just as we have the power to vote out our corrupted Officials.

It is time for us to demand that our Elected Officials denounce Socialism and Communism in all of its forms here in the United States.

Stand up America and fight for your Freedom.

Demand an end to this Socialist/Marxist/Communist movement in America and hold those who are responsible, accountable! If we don’t take a stand now, we will most certainly find ourselves and our Children living under this:

A Bad Moon has Risen over America

wallpaper_25311

Hat tip to The Orthosphere

As traditionalist conservatives, we understand that the current order, although it contains pockets of relative sanity, is, overall, hopelessly corrupt. Although we knew the chances were not good, many of us had been hoping that a renewal of American society could somehow be brought about. We knew that the old America—the predominantly white, Christian America of ordered liberty under God and the Constitution—was in some senses gone. But while the permanent loss of America was seen as possible, even likely, it was not foremost in our minds. We generally focused on what could be done to oppose liberalism.

That has changed. While the recent presidential election did not change anything fundamental (elections cannot do that), it did reveal that even a President who obviously hates and opposes the traditional American way of life can easily be reelected. It revealed that a president who is incompetent at doing what he should, and very competent at pursuing leftist-inspired destruction, can gain the votes of the majority. It revealed anew that in the new America the enemies of a decent order have all the advantages. Barring a miracle, we cannot see how it will be possible to revive a properly-ordered (or at least adequately-ordered) American nation from sea to shining sea.

This insight did not just come from the recent election. Nearly a year ago, for example, Lawrence Auster announced that he no longer believed it possible for America to reject liberalism, and that, in his words, “…liberalism will continue until it has destroyed our civilization, and liberalism itself, having been deprived of its host, will also perish…” This conclusion was not the result of any specific event, but was rather an intuitive insight based on cumulative data.

What to Do?

It is a dreadful thing to contemplate the loss of one’s nation. An appropriate first response is mourning.

After mourning should come repentance. Part of repentance is to change our understanding of what must be done. Man naturally wants to preserve what is best about his nation, and conservatives, almost by definition, wish to defend their nation from internal (and external) enemies. It is natural for a conservative, traditionalist or otherwise, to view his task as preserving or renewing his nation.

But if this is no longer possible, what’s a conservative to do?
