Why The Feds Chickened Out
On A Nevada Ranch

Townhall, by Kevin McCullough

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/13/2014 11:55:18 AM

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

I think it´s just a regroup to pre-position new hardware and troops.

two points..
#1, now we know why the government was buying up so many millions of rounds of ammo.

#2. Make sure people know what that disgusting Harry Reid´s part was in all of this. In bed with the Chinese for a wind farm and his son was the broker. Spread the word.

If there was ever an argument for a Convention of States to Propose Amendments to the Constitution, this is it! Allowing the federal government to confiscate private property from state-owned land is a constitutional travesty. The Commerce Clause and the General Welfare Clause must be amended, and Congress will not do it. Article V of the Constitution gives the same authority to the states as it does to Congress, no more, no less. What are we waiting for... blood in the desert? There is a Solution as big as the Problem - An Article V Convention of States!

They chickened out because hundreds of "wolverines" arrived to stand with the Bundys. It ain´t "Red Dawn" yet...and it ain´t gonna be if more and more wolverines keep showing up at such situations.

I am both troubled and encouraged. Encouraged because in the short run the resistance worked and won. Troubled because they´ll try it again and will try to keep an information blackout. Troubled because the government´s lack of a backbone here is also how it behaves on foreign policy. Troubled because successful resistance required the threat of violence by citizens against the government. Encouraged because it was justified, it worked, and it showed that the Second Amendment is not out of date but still critical. Troubled because this may be the only way to deal with our government right now. Overall, still encouraged because resistance, when executed properly, is not only not futile but essential and rewarding.

It is no coincidence that all these events (the Ruby Ridge and Waco massacres, the Elian Gonzales incident and the Bundy Ranch attempted takeover) all happened during Democrat regimes. Whatever their shortcomings, the Republicans don´t have the same lust for totalitarian power.

#10 is correct, and the fact needs to be repeated over and over how the Democrats are trying to do X and Y.

Not "the government" or "congress"

It´s Democrats, and usually liberal Democrats.

Harry Reid and his son need to be held accountable.
They wasted millions of taxpayer dollars on this scheme.

George H.W. Bush was President during Ruby Ridge.

But unlike Clinton and that Commie POS in the WH today, Mr Bush was totally BS at what happened on Ruby Ridge and told the FBI, and others, that it would never happen again under his watch.


PS: Kudos to #6 and, I propose that a ´Militia Without Borders´ organization be formed and its members all be call ´WOLVERINES´!

PPS: And #4 is entirely correct. A show of force by armed citizens is one thing but a show of force via an Article 5 Convention would show DC who is really the boss.

I am very happy to see a specific group of people DID get out from behind their computers and stood toe to toe with the Bundy Family. We need a lot more of this if we are to maintain our Constitutional Republic.

Contrary to the ignorant, the Constitution DOES spell out the formation of Militias, and giving the Governors the power to appoint the Officers.

We need to be setting up our Militias. It is LEGAL and within the Constitution. The authority to dispose of an illegal government is in our Declaration of Independence.

When are we going to have the ethics and integrity to do it? Or are there too many weasel excuses?

Citizen Wolverines caused the bullies to scatter and run. This whole mess was concocted and carried out by the thug at the top and his henchman at the Justice Department. There is no other way to look at this. A trial run that turned out to be a "Force One" Debacle...

No amount of ammunition stockpiled by the feds can ever possibly equal the bravery and steadfastness of our Citizen Wolverines. Heroes all.

Our association deployed 250 wolverines and support personnel to the area in order to support and defend Mr. Bundy.
We are in strategic positions around the area and ready to strike against Obama´s henchmen. According to our members, there are as many as 2500 wolverines in the area, and they are ready to engage.
The Feds know they are currently outnumber, and they have backed down...for now. I wouldn´t be surprised if US and NATO troops are amassing in the desert, preparing for a strike.
Make no mistake, a revolution is at hand.

The tortoise excuse is the most vulnerable claim for The BLM. Not only was there an excess of tortoises, but they were on the Bundy range because they and the cattle are an ecosystem...the tortoises are not in danger or bothered by the cattle, they eat the cattle´s droppings.

Working toward a Convention of States to change the Constitution is a waste of time.

The regime does not follow the law now. Why would changing a few words in a document they use for toilet paper mean anything to them?

We have RIGHTS they are trying to take from us. The second amendment wasn´t put in place for Duck hunting.

I doubt if this is the end of this story. I think Bundy will be charged with contempt--criminal contempt most likely. Others may be charged with obstruction of justice. Are they willing to go to jail for the cause? We´ll see.

I agree, #29. Also, I wondered about the blocking of the Interstate. Probably there will be no charges, but the action was certainly exacerbating a volatile situation. I am so thankful the BLM pulled back. They had to do so before bloodshed.

Attention, libs. In the end, the federal government is refusing to enforce the law. No different than the federal government´s refusal to enforce DOMA, selective parts of ACA, or any of the other laws that the Department of Payback opts not to. Get it? Of course, it puts us all one step closer to anarchy - which is what some of you want anyway, so what happened was a good thing. Be happy!

The Feds didn´t even realize they were separating newborn calves from their mothers when they rounded them up. Calves were dying all over the range. Govt gone berserk. What Rancher Cliven Bundy owes is more like $300,000 -- and that was only because his county refused to take his monthly dues. He stopped paying BLM when they stopped improving the land, as they had agreed when they first started levying him rent 20 years ago. As long as they were improving, he was paying.

Reid & Son have been exposed for wanting a Chinese Co. to build a Solar Farm on this PUBLIC land. So they are going to have a hard time regrouping to strip his cattle now. But I´m sure they´ll try...

#23. There is a BIG difference between a Constitutional Convention and a Convention of States. 2 different things.
A Convention of States will propose term limits, and taking back States´ Rights.
Congress will have no participation. Washington refuses to fix itself, so it is up to the States to fix it.

The rumors that Rupert Murdoch was interested in purchasing Time Warner gained some shape and form Wednesday morning, as the New York Times reported that sources said Murdoch made an $80 billion offer for the TV-cable-film-magazine conglomerate, only to be rebuffed. Fox approached Time Warner in June and offered to pay $85 a share on Time Warner stock; the combined company would be worth about $65 billion in revenue. Per the Times, Murdoch is especially interested in Time Warner’s broadcast rights to sport events like basketball and baseball games, to help grow Fox’s sports footprint.

The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee attacked the Obama administration late Tuesday after the White House said a top political aide to the president would defy a subpoena and not appear at a hearing investigating the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach. The White House argued that David Simas, the office´s director, is immune from the "extraordinary demand" of being forced to testify before the committee.

Politicians in Germany have devised an ingenious solution to combat the threat of eavesdropping by American spies: playing classical music during their meetings. MPs who sit on the spying committee had become so concerned that US agents might listen in to their discussions that they had ordered classical music to be played, to drown out the discussions. On arrival at the meeting, The Suddetusche Zeitung reported that for "security reasons" MPs had to put their mobile phones and computers into a large metal box to ensure that they were not subjected to outside surveillance.

Israel escalated its offensive against Hamas on Wednesday, carrying out dozens of air strikes and warning about 100,000 Palestinians to leave their homes in the Gaza Strip by a deadline of 8am. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) held fire for six hours on Tuesday in accordance with an Egyptian ceasefire plan, but an official statement said that Hamas continued to launch rockets, killing one civilian. “When it was clear that Hamas had no intention of ceasing its fire after it had launched over 75 rockets, the political echelon approved the IDF to resume targeting terror sites across the Gaza Strip,”

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation. The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual. The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey.

Bergdahl has refused to see his parents or speak to them on the phone, the official said. The decision by Sgt. Bergdahl, who returned to regular duty on Monday, suggests a deeper estrangement between the soldier and his parents than the military understood when he was released. Still, officials said, they don’t know the precise cause of the tension or when it began. Sgt. Bergdahl’s father, Robert Bergdahl, emerged as a fierce advocate for his son during the five years

Tomorrow is the deadline for the public to comment on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) attempt to regulate the Internet under the seemingly innocuous moniker of “net neutrality.” The architect of this movement, and the man who coined the term “net neutrality,” is Columbia law professor Tim Wu. Unfortunately, he has proved to be immensely influential among regulators. Net neutrality rules have been sold for a decade as a way to keep the Internet “open and free” by keeping Internet service providers (ISPs), such as phone and cable companies, from blocking or degrading Web sites. Its advocates have argued that ISPs

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore.

“So far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked every serious idea to strengthen the middle class.” –President Obama, weekly address, July 12, 2014 ~This has become a standard line in the president’s oratory, as part of making his case that he’s “acted this year to help working Americans on my own– when Congress won’t act.” The president started on this path on June 27, during a speech in Minnesota: “You know, sometimes I’m forcibly, you know, politic about how I say things, but I’m finding lately that I just want to say what’s on my mind.
