Utah Sheriff to BLM: “I Will Deputize Everyone and Arrest All Federal Agents!”

(Video)

By all accounts, it looks like another standoff with Obama’s BLM is brewing once again, and some of the names involved are all too familiar. The major difference between this standoff and the Burns, Oregon ranch, is that one of the men Lavoy Finicum had a pact with to protect each other from federal agents has a nephew that is also the sheriff, and as you’ll learn below, the sheriff is threatening to deputize every man, woman, and child in the county and arrest any BLM agents on sight.

The Independent reports:

Utah Attorney Todd MacFarlane actively supported ranching scofflaws Cliven Bundy, Wayne Hage, Mary Bulloch, and LaVoy Finicum. He now represents the Finicum family and, working with Smith, is engaged in a dangerous game of recruiting ranchers, miners, and other federal “permittees” to sign a pledge document to boycott paying their fees. 

LaVoy Finicum pitched the same cowboy revolt in November 2015, one that included the provision that when the federal government takes action, ranchers were offered a variety of militant services that would come to protect them during their own future standoff. […]

THE GOVERNMENT IS UP TO THEIR ILLEGAL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL WAYS ONCE AGAIN!

The federal government is only allowed to own Washington DC and military installations as per Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution. Furthermore, per Article I, Section 8, Clause 1, the BLM, FWS, Department of Interior, Forestry Service, and many other federal agencies are wholly Unconstitutional and disallowed. However, it is the two little words “general welfare” that have been misapplied and abused by DC legislators for decades which has led to the creation of such agencies; the same ones which exercise such egregious overreach and disregard for our rights, our families, and all Americans every day.

Superior Court Judges on BLM Occupation in Oregon: “The British Crown has Kidnapped and Press-Ganged American Land Assets… in Criminal Conspiracy & Contempt of Our Constitution”

Posted on by Tim Brown

I have known that the united States Constitution has been undermined for some time,beginning with Abraham Lincoln. I have also know of the incorporation of the united States that is based in London, England. However, now, two Superior Court Judges, who are also common law judges under the Postmaster General of their respective regions inAlaska and Colorado, are pointing out the actions of the Bureau of Land Management and the actions of criminal politicians in the united States government to undermine the American view of government and law. This is especially enlightening with what has been going on with the Bundys, the Hammonds and the death of LaVoy Finicum.

Breaking: Judge Anna Von Reitz Files Commercial Lien Against BLM and FBI

FBI

—— MESSAGE SENT TO HOUSE OVERSIGHT SUBCOMMITTEE IN RE: OREGON OCCUPATION/BLM/FBI— 1:46 AM AST, January 4, 2016—-

The BLM and FBI are called “government agencies” but are nothing but subcontractors working in behalf of other “governmental services corporations” fronted by international banking cartels. Right now you fellows are going through a changing of the guards while you attempt to pull off yet another institutionalized fraud scheme in which you fail to inform birthright American State Citizens of your undisclosed activities designed to entrap them, copyright their given names, roll over their estates into Cestui Que Vie Trusts and Public Transmitting Utilities and defraud them the rest of their lives while you feed off of them and their labor like parasites.

Right now, your “agencies” have “presumed” to act against your employers and benefactors again.

Be advised that your activities are being closely monitored by other governments and international agencies around the world. Be advised that the Hammonds and the Bundys have clearly and repeatedly Self-Declared their actual political status and that the ONLY purpose for the EXISTENCE of the “Bureau of Land Management” or the “Federal Bureau of Investigations” is to provide these “free sovereign and independent people of the United States” (Definitive Treaty of Peace, Article 3) with “essential governmental services” (Constitution, Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2).

Those “essential governmental services” do not include mischaracterization, fraud, racketeering, threats, false claims, identity theft, or any other action detrimental to them and their interests. The ONLY reason for this government or any other to exist is the protection of the people and their material assets.

We have had enough of your Bully Boy tactics and your provocations and your false arrests and your false charges under conditions of personage and barratry. We have had enough of your criminality and lack of regard for the Public Law and the only equity contract allowing your presence on this Continent.

The federal corporations are no better nor of any different character than any commercial corporations in the world. If McDonald’s and Target cannot ram around using commercial mercenary armies to terrify the populace, neither can you.

We are establishing a commercial lien for damages of $100 billion United States Dollars (USD) defined as one ounce of fine silver for the loss of any one Oregon State Citizen murdered by any federal corporation employee, mercenary, subcontractor, agent or ally, with an additional $100 billion (USD) to be paid directly as compensation to their families.

The Oregon State will be bringing war crimes charges against the “DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE” before the World Court if even one American is harmed by the FBI and more charges will be brought against the BLM.

Consider this your First Public Notice of these facts and of the pending Commercial Lien Obligation.

Citing flawed BLM report, federal judge Miranda Du sends Searchlight wind farm back to drawing board

By Kyle Roerink

Citing flawed analysis by the Bureau of Land Management, a federal judge halted an 87-turbine wind project slated to be built near Searchlight in some of the Mojave Desert’s most environmentally-sensitive habitat.

U.S. District Judge Miranda Du rebuked the BLM for “gaps” in the agency’s research about the project’s impact on golden eagles, tortoises and bats. The decision requires the project to restart its permitting process, which could trigger multiyear delays or halt it entirely.

The wind farm would have been developed by Virginia-based Apex Clean Energy and located on 18,949 acres of BLM land between Lake Mead National Recreation Area and Searchlight.

The BLM’s environmental study, approved by the Department of Interior in March 2013, said that the project would affect 119 desert tortoises. But Du said that number had “unexplained inconsistencies” and agreed with plaintiffs that there could be closer to 1,000 of the threatened tortoises in the project area.

The BLM estimated there to only be three golden eagle nests in the project’s vicinity. But a study conducted by the state found that there were more than nine times as many.

The decision comes after a three-year legal battle by environmentalists including Friends of Searchlight Desert and Mountains, Basin and Range Watch and Las Vegas resident Judy Bundorf to stop the project, which would have been the second of its kind in the state.

“This is a stupid place to try to build an industrial-scale energy facility,” said Dave Becker, an attorney who represented the plaintiffs.

While the decision was a “great victory,” it highlights a dilemma for environmental advocates across the nation, Becker said. Renewable energy projects, including solar and wind plants, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, but can be located on sensitive habitats.

Becker said there hasn’t been enough “discrimination” in approving projects: “We like to say the federal government shouldn’t be picking winners and losers, but when it comes to land management it’s exactly what the BLM should be doing — picking projects with big benefits and low impacts.”

BLM: No permit yet for 2015 BURNING MAN

Fingerprint sculpture - Burning Man 2014Although Burning Man still has not received its permit yet, the Bureau of Land Management has unofficially announced that a portion of the Black Rock Desert will be closed off starting next week for the purposes of the annual arts event.

The BLM notified the public that 13 percent of the recreation area would be closed from Aug. 10 through Sept. 21 in an “unpublished” notice posted on its website Monday. The notice is set to be officially published today, according to the document.

Burning Man is expected to take place from Aug. 30 to Sept. 7. Although Burning Man staff and volunteers already are working out on the playa site, construction is supposed to be delayed until the BLM grants the nonprofit the permit.

The permit, which cost Burning Man $4 million last year, usually is issued in early August, although the BLM made some unprecedented requests for this year’s event discovered in documents obtained by the Reno Gazette-Journal in June.

Neither BLM officials nor Burning Man organizers have released details about the negotiations of the permitting process. The BLM’s requests included washers, dryers, flushing toilets and air conditioning. It is unclear if the BLM requests – which Burning Man estimated would cost more than $1 million to provide – still are included in the agreement between the two parties.

BLM officials previously insisted upon some of the amenities because high level BLM personnel would be visiting the site to ensure security and safety at the event since both were of concern following last year’s event, according to BLM reports.

The closure of the designated Black Rock Desert area before, during and after the event will be “to provide a safe environment for the public and for participants at the Burning Man event, and to protect public land resources while avoiding imposing restrictions that may not be necessary in the area during the remainder of the year,” the closure notice states.

Cattle Ranchers vs. The Feds: “You don’t just come into a ranch and say I’m going to run it.”

“They say you can’t fight City Hall,” says rancher Eddyanne Filippini, but “what they’re doing to us is not right.”

BLM sucksA cattle rancher in Battle Mountain, Nevada, Filippini and her husband Dan are fighting with the government to get their grazing rights back on land controlled by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Permits to graze on federal lands are part of a ranch’s assessed value and transferred when property is bought or sold. The BLM, a federal agency within the Department of the Interior, controls a total of 155 million acres in the U.S. that is sets aside for livestock grazing. Private ranchers like the Filipinis rely on this land to feed their cattle.

Last year, the BLM revoked the Filippinis’ grazing rights on the grounds that a drought had made the land too dry. Raul Morales, the deputy state director for the Nevada State Office of the BLM, tells Reason that “Nevada has actually been in drought 8 of the last 10 years. The last four years we’ve had…consistent drought.”

“We know how to take care of it and we do, we have for years,” explains rancher Pete Tomera, a neighbor of the Filippinis who is also fighting for the return of his grazing rights. “We’ve done it all our lives. I mean you don’t just come into a ranch and say I’m going to run it.”

Latest suit to block Nevada mustang roundups targets drugs

wild-horse-roundupA federal judge has agreed to let wild-horse advocates make their case for a court order blocking another mustang roundup in Nevada in a legal battle underscoring divisions among protection groups over the use of a fertility drug to slow herd growth.

U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks set a Feb. 9 hearing for the request for a temporary injunction prohibiting the government from gathering 332 horses in the Pine Nut Range southeast of Carson City.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management agreed to postpone at least until later this month the roundup that had been scheduled to begin last week.

Friends of Animals and Protect Mustangs filed a lawsuit late last month accusing the federal agency of violating the National Environmental Policy Act with the plans to ship about 200 animals to holding pens and return the others to the range, including an estimated 66 mares that will be injected with the fertility control drug, PZP (porcine zona pellucida).wild-horses

A new filing last week seeking a restraining order says the agency plans are based on an outdated 2010 environmental assessment that doesn’t adequately address the physical, behavioral and social impacts of PZP on wild mares.Critics say the only public comment federal agency obtained was on the old assessment from Aug. 23 to Sept. 23, 2010. “A mere 30-day public comment period” failed to provide the public reasonable notice “that more than four years later the Pine Nut herd would be made subject to a hasty roundup in 2015,” they said.

The lawsuit says the federal agency also ignored other studies back then suggesting PZP “likely creates instability in wild horse bands, affects the health of horse and can increase wild horse mortality.” “Since the 2010 EA, significant new scientific information has become available further demonstrating the negative impacts of PZP,” the lawsuit says.

The research includes a paper published later in 2010 in the scientific journal PLOS ONE by Cassandra Nunez, an adjunct assistant professor of ecology at Iowa State University. She was a researcher in Princeton University’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology when she wrote the paper concluding the Bureau of Land Management’s earlier assessment was “accurate regarding the information that was available at the time.”

“It is outdated now,” she said in a 40-page affidavit attached to the lawsuit Thursday. “Recent research has demonstrated changes in mare stress and reproductive physiology, in addition to changes in male behavior.”

Bands of wild horses historically are stable, with mares staying with the same males much if not all of their lives, the lawsuit says. “However, when they have been treated with PZP and mares cannot get pregnant, they will leave bands.”

Bureau of Land Management officials said they cannot comment on pending litigation. But the agency said on its website that it uses PZP in cooperation with the Humane Society of the United States under FDA rules that apply to research on new animal drugs. “The PZP vaccine does not affect unborn foals, and the vaccinated mares return to normal fertility within four years,” the Bureau of Land Management said.

The National Cattlemen’s Association and others back PZP to supplement roundups of horses they say are robbing their livestock of precious forage. The National Academy of Sciences advanced the idea in a 451-page report in 2013, recommending fewer roundups and more emphasis on fertility control.

While horse groups unanimously oppose roundups, some disagree about PZP.

The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, the largest coalition of horse groups in the nation, was among those who urged increased use of PZP in 2011.

“The PZP vaccine represents the most humane and cost-beneficial alternative to the current, cost-prohibitive wild horse removals,” said the policy statement signed by members of the Humane Society, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals and Animal Welfare Institute.

Anne Novak, executive director of the San Francisco-based Protect Mustangs, argued that the artificial manipulation of the herds “takes away their freedom to live as nature intended.”

“Management based on PZP drugging is setting up wild horses and burros to be controlled in large zoo-like exhibits on public lands,” she said. “They need to be left alone.”

The Bureau of Land Management said a population survey in August determined there were 332 horses in the horse management area — more than twice as many as it says can be sustained over the 140 square miles in Lyon and Douglas counties.

Craig Downer, a wildlife biologist who works with Protect Mustangs, denied that the Pine Nut herds are overpopulated. He has observed the horses for years and documented that PZP will “disrupt normal social interactions and cause much frustration and dysfunction.”

Problems with PZP have been covered up by proponents, including “wild horse supporters who are being manipulated into supporting PZP,” Downer said.

Earle Dixon: In 2004 BLM MANAGER FOR ANACONDA MINE FILES WHISTLEBLOWER CHARGE — Abrupt Termination Due to Raising Pollution and Safety Problems

whistle blowerWashington, DC — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manager overseeing the cleanup of the Anaconda Mine says he was illegally dismissed for pursuing worker safety, as well as radiation, air and water pollution violations, according to a legal complaint released today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).

BLM Nevada Director Bob Abbey dismissed Earle Dixon, the Project Manager for the Anaconda Mine at Yerington, Nevada, from his position on October 5, after less than one year on the job. Abbey’s notice of dismissal cited “efficiency of the service” and friction “with various constituencies.” Dixon’s complaint, however, details Abbey’s unwillingness to confront mounting evidence of contamination and worker exposure. In his complaint, Dixon calls attention to a number of problems that were not addressed because they would drive up remediation costs –

Radiation readings well above background levels that pose risks to the health of workers onsite;
Higher than expected contamination of soil, groundwater and drinking water wells; and
Non-compliance with a number of federal pollution standards, including possible public exposure to radioactive and toxic metals in air-borne dust.

“Earle Dixon’s job was to solve the pollution problems, not disguise them,” stated PEER General Counsel Richard Condit whose organization will assist Dixon’s lead counsel, Mick Harrison, in prosecuting the claim. “From this record, it appears BLM removed Earle Dixon simply because he did environmental compliance too well.”

Dixon’s job was to coordinate the hazardous waste management and compliance at the site with EPA, the State of Nevada, tribes and responsible private parties. The Anaconda Mine is an abandoned copper mine covering more than 3,600 acres where acid run-off and waste rock containing low levels of uranium, thorium and other exposed metals have been disposed in unlined ponds. The mine has also had a succession of owners, including the Atlantic Richfield Company owned by British Petroleum. Today, half the site is located on public lands managed by the BLM.

Dixon filed a whistleblower complaint under several federal laws including the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Clean Air Act, Superfund, the Toxic Substances Control Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The complaint triggers an immediate federal investigation and, if the matter is not resolved in 30 days, a full evidentiary hearing before a federal administrative law judge will be scheduled.

“We expect that Dixon’s co-workers at BLM and colleagues from other federal and state agencies will be forthright about Dixon’s efforts to secure environmental compliance at the site to protect workers and the public,” Condit added. With Dixon’s removal, oversight of the Anaconda Mine has been moved from the BLM Carson City Office to the BLM state headquarters in Reno. “Such a move is an unprecedented political intervention in a hazardous waste clean-up operation and reflects retaliatory motive by the BLM State Director,” stated Mick Harrison.

Nevada residents win $19.5m settlement in toxic waste leak lawsuit

Residents accused Atlantic Richfield Co of ‘intentionally’ concealing extent of uranium, arsenic and other leaked pollutants
Nevada chemical pollution

Rural neighbors of an abandoned World War II-era copper mine that has leaked toxic chemicals in northern Nevada for decades have won up to a $19.5m settlement from companies they accused of covering up the contamination.

Atlantic Richfield Co and its parent BP America Inc acknowledged no wrongdoing under the agreement, which also calls for them to pay $2.6m in attorney fees to the legal team that represented about 700 past and present neighbors of the old Anaconda mine built in 1941 on the edge of Yerington about 65 miles southeast of Reno.

Residents said in a class-action suit filed in 2011 that the companies had “intentionally and negligently” concealed the extent of uranium, arsenic and other pollutants leaking into their drinking water wells from the mine covering 6 square miles — an area equal to 3,000 football fields.

“We are so pleased,” said Peggy Pauly, 64, whose two-acre home borders the mine. She helped organize concerned families in 2004 after a US government whistleblower started publicizing studies that had previously been kept secret documenting health and safety risks posed by a plume of radioactive contamination migrating off the site.

“It was a long ordeal, but it was worth it,” Pauly said on Wednesday. “Residents wish we had never had to deal with any of this.”

The companies agreed to pay $7m in property damages and $900,000 to a medical monitoring fund. The final damages will depend on the cost of extending city water supplies to about 200 residents, estimated between $6.5m and $12.5m.

BP America said the settlement is “fair and reasonable.”

“It delivers a good outcome for the community by guaranteeing the availability of a reliable, clean source of drinking water by connecting residents to the city water supply, and furthers the company’s interests toward achieving a final resolution of groundwater concerns in the area without the cost and distraction of further litigation,” the company said in an email to AP on Wednesday.

About a dozen families filed the lawsuit in US District Court in Reno nearly a decade after they started pressing concerns with state regulators they said were too cozy with Nevada’s mining industry to effectively enforce a cleanup schedule at the site, which the US Environmental Protection Agency since has assumed control of under its Superfund program.

In 2008, a US Labor Department review panel upheld a whistleblower claim by ex-mine cleanup supervisor Earle Dixon who said the US Bureau of Land Management illegally fired him four years earlier for speaking out about the risks in defiance of local politicians who tried to muzzle him.

“This was a small community taking on a big corporation in a mining town over mining pollution – an imposing challenge,” Steven German, co-counsel for the plaintiffs, said in a telephone interview from New York.

Fueled by demand after World War II, Anaconda produced 1.7bn pounds of copper from 1952-78 at the mine in the Mason Valley, an irrigated agricultural oasis in the area’s otherwise largely barren high desert.

The EPA determined over the years that uranium was produced as a byproduct of processing the copper and that the radioactive waste was initially dumped into dirt-bottomed ponds that – unlike modern lined ponds – leaked into the groundwater.

BP and Atlantic Richfield, which bought Anaconda Copper Co in 1978, have provided bottled water for free to any residents who want it for several years. But they had said uranium naturally occurs in the region’s soil and that there was no proof that a half-century of processing metals there was responsible for the contamination.

Pauly and others started seeking outside legal help after a new wave of EPA testing first reported by the AP in November 2009 found that 79 percent of the wells tested north of mine had dangerous levels of uranium or arsenic or both that made the water unsafe to drink.

One a half miles away had uranium levels more than 10 times the legal drinking water standard. At the mine itself, wells tested as high as 100 times the standard. Though health effects of specific levels are not well understood, the EPA says long-term exposure to high levels of uranium in drinking water may cause cancer and damage kidneys.

Nevada BLM cleans out cleanup project manager

  • Earle Dixon, with the Anaconda mine pit in the background, says he was fired for trying to enforce the law. At press time, the Labor Department had yet to decide if it will investigate his case

    PHOTO COURTESY EARLE DIXON

 Earle Dixon was in for a surprise this fall, when he showed up for a meeting at his office in the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s Carson City Field Office. Over the previous year, Dixon had overseen the cleanup of the Yerington Mine at the edge of the dusty town of Yerington in western Nevada, where the Anaconda Copper Co. had mined and processed copper ore for more than 25 years. Cleanup of the 3,600-acre site, which includes metal-contaminated mine tailings, radioactive evaporation ponds and a plume of contaminated groundwater, will be neither cheap nor easy. But Dixon, a mine hydrogeology specialist and former technical advisor at the Nevada Test Site, was up for the project.

At that Oct. 5 meeting, however, the field office manager handed Dixon a three-page termination letter signed by the BLM’s Nevada state director. According to the letter, Dixon had “alienated many of the groups that we, as an agency responsible for managing public lands, need to deal with in accomplishing our mission in an efficient and effective manner.”

“I met with Earle prior to his dismissal and voiced my concerns about his behavior and lack of professionalism,” says Robert Abbey, director of the BLM’s Nevada state office. Dixon was fired, he says, because of his “lack of progress related to cleanup activities.”

But in a 23-page sworn statement, Dixon maintains that he was fired for trying to ensure that the mine cleanup complied with federal environmental and worker safety laws. “All I was doing was my job,” he says today. Dixon is neither shy nor subtle, and he knew from the beginning that his job would involve politicking. But, he says, “my title was ‘environmental protection specialist’ — not ‘environmental suck-up.’ ”

As the BLM’s remedial project manager for the Yerington Mine site, Dixon was hired to clean the site according to laws such as the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Clean Water Act and the Toxic Substances Control Act, while at the same time protecting the health and safety of cleanup workers. He worked closely with other BLM staff, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, county and local officials, contractors and the mine’s current owner, Atlantic Richfield.

Throughout the course of his year with the BLM, Dixon says, he repeatedly had disagreements, particularly with state officials, over the presence of radioactivity at the mine, whether the uranium found last spring in the drinking water of Yerington residents was from the mine, and how to best protect cleanup workers and locals from radioactive contamination. Last spring, for instance, Atlantic Richfield supplied residents with bottled water, even though the company denied the uranium came from the mine.

Dixon carefully documented these disagreements. A January 2004 entry in his notes details what happened when he wrote a letter saying the state’s worker health and safety plan was unacceptable and did not meet federal standards: “State (BLM) Director Office staff modify letter to make it more politically acceptable & friendly.” On March 24, when Dixon attended a meeting in Yerington to explain the project to residents, he says consultants hired by the mining company edited his presentation. Part of that day’s entry reads: “(Original) Talk also suggested that Uranium in domestic wells north of Mine site might be from the Mine. Talk is edited to not give any suggestion that Uranium in groundwater is from the Mine & to suggest that all Uranium in the area is naturally occurring.”

After he was fired, Dixon spent a few days feeling stunned, he says. Then a friend at the BLM told him he needed to talk to someone at Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit. On PEER’s advice, Dixon found an attorney, and filed a complaint against the BLM with the U.S. Department of Labor.

While Dixon waits to hear if the department will investigate his complaint, he’s meeting with Yerington residents, working with environmental groups and doing what he can to make sure the cleanup and the mine’s risks aren’t brushed under the rug. “The state of Nevada thought I would just curl up, die and blow away,” says Dixon. But, in his opinion, the problems at Yerington — the mining company’s attempts to avoid responsibility, the state’s efforts to protect the company instead of the community, and the unwillingness of a federal agency to uphold federal laws — are not limited to one mine site. “That model can be applied to mines across the West,” he says. “Groups that want mining reform, they can use Yerington as their poster child.”

“(Earle) was the key proponent within the agency for the community and workers at the time,” says Elyssa Rosen, executive director of Great Basin Mine Watch. “It’s ironic that he would be targeted for alienating the community… and it sure looks fishy when you fire the guy who was finding and publicizing the radioactivity.”

The Reno-based nonprofit, which exposed the leakage of uranium from the mine site last year, hopes Dixon’s complaint will bring more attention to Yerington. Says Rosen: “We’re looking forward to working with the EPA and (Sen. Harry) Reid’s office and coming together to get a solution that actually brings resources and clarity to the community.”

We can no longer dismiss these type of events as small localized issues; I believe they’re part of a larger movement to control the way we live. What we are seeing here is a coordinated attack on traditional American values, and an all out assault on the self-reliant lifestyle. They don’t want you to be able to live off your land, they don’t want you to hunt and fish, and they don’t want you to be able to take care of yourself.

“RETALIATION”: FEDS LAUNCH NEW LAND GRAB TARGETING BUNDY FAMILY

Battle of Bunkerville 2: BLM to declare 1.8 million acres environmental protection zone

“Retaliation”: Feds Launch New Land Grab Targeting Bundy Family
by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON | OCTOBER 29, 2014
A federal land grab being imposed under the guise of environmental protection in Southern Nevada has been labeled an act of “deliberate retaliation” by Cliven Bundy, the rancher who was at the center of a standoff between BLM agents and armed militia groups earlier this year.

On Sunday, the Bundy family posted a Facebook entry which asserted that, “the federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people,” after it was announced that the feds intended to designate around 1.8 million acres of land around their Gold Butte range as critical to the environment.

The initial dispute between Bundy and the feds, which culminated in an armed standoff between BLM agents and Bundy supporters back in April, centered around more than $1 million in grazing fees which authorities claimed Bundy owed stretching back two decades.
The Bundy family asserts that the new draft Resource Management Plan made public by the Bureau of Land Management would place up to 3 million acres of land off limits to recreational use, agriculture or ranching.

“They’re trying to surround us by controlling all the land. People should know they’re doing this without the knowledge of the people who use it,” Carol Bundy told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Days after the standoff came to a head earlier this year, after which the feds were forced to release nearly 400 cattle belonging to Bundy, Nevada Senator Harry Reid labeled Bundy supporters “domestic terrorists” and indicated that the fight was not over.

“From near the beginning of history, tyrannical men have sought to oppress through the control of land and resources, “Control the land and resources, and you have the power to control the people”. There is a direct correlation to land and resources with power and wealth. All major powers in world history have gained their power & wealth by conquering the land and controlling the resources,” states the Bundy Facebook post, adding that Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) “have been a tool used by the federal government to gain further control of large masses of western lands and the resources.”

The BLM’s latest move to seize huge tracts of land surrounding Bundy’s property under the justification of environmental protection suggests that we could witness part two of the ‘Battle of Bunkerville’ sometime over the next few months.
The comment period for the BLM’s new proposal ends on January 7th after a series of public meetings set to begin on Monday.

Powder Keg: Cliven Bundy Supporters Openly Warn Feds To Stand Down In 3 Million Acre Land Grab

Get Ready for the Shit the hit the fan…

by Pete Santilli, The Pete Santilli Show & The Guerilla Media Network

The Pete Santilli Show:   Wednesday October 28, 2014 Episode #827

In this episode of  The Pete Santilli Show:  Pete’s back from his little business trip.  We were off air for a couple days, planning for the coming days & weeks of unraveling within the USA.

Today Pete’s main theme was about a story he discovered initially that was published on BeforeItsNews.com titled  FEDS Retaliate Against The Bundy Ranch And Southern Nevada.

In today’s episode, Pete relives the original Bundy Ranch standoff, and he also conveys his belief that a 2nd Bundy Ranch Standoff will ensue if the federal government dares to take the 3 million acres they have recently proposed and published on their website.  Santilli’s comments are important, especially as they relate to the U.S. Constitution.  Article one, section 7 paragraph 17 of the U.S. Constitution specifically prohibits what the U.S. Government can and cannot own as far as land.  Taking 3 million acres from the American people is outright unconstitutional, and Santilli tells Senator Harry Reid, the BLM, the DOJ and every other communist who has infiltrated the U.S. Government that we will not let them take the land from the people of the state of Nevada.  Santilli openly calls for a 2nd Bundy Ranch Standoff in order to defend our constitutional rights as a people.

During the show, Pete Santilli is joined by “Gunny Booda”, the head of security for the Bundy Family and Ranch.  Booda and Santilli are both former United States Marines who have sworn an oath to defend and support the U.S. Constitution, and they do not pull any punches when the discuss how a 2nd Bundy Ranch Standoff will produce an even bigger response than the first — the Constitution still applies, and contrary to BLM Special Agent Daniel P. Love’s recorded conversations with Santilli, the U.S. Constitution applies in the dirt.

Please listen to at least the last conversation Santilli had with Love before the Standoff:   3 – Final Meeting with BLM_04112014  3 – Final Meeting with BLM_04112014

Santilli & Booda also reach out to federal agents, law enforcement and federal officials to be “Constitutional”, and to stand down when confronted by peaceful protestors.  They both agree that each of the Bundy Ranch supporters are peaceful, constitutional and very willing to die defending our God-given rights.  They both encourage all members to the Citizen’s Militia to respond to the call when necessary in order to defend our country at Bundy Ranch.

The warning to the federal government is strern and non-negotiable.

1) The federal government must comply strictly with Article 1,  Section 8, paragraph 17  ”To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of Particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;–  The federal government does not own land for any reason outside or or in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

2) If the federal government attempts to seize 3 million acres in Southern Nevada, and local law enforcement does not side with the people of Nevada as in the case leading up to the standoff in April 2014, We The People will have no alternative than to stop them by any means necessary to peacefully defend and support the U.S. Constitution.  If the federal government attempts to harm the American people in any manner with “weapons of war” as they did on April 12th 2014, We The People will have to defend ourselves by any means necessary.  We will not fire a shot unless fired upon, but we make it very clear that the 2nd amendment will be fully exercised in our defense, and as we are obligated to do so by the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.

3) 10′s of millions of patriots are literally willing to die to defend our nation from all enemies; foreign and domestic.  Feds and law enforcement need to choose the side of the American people and refuse to continue acting as a domestic enemy.  Officials who have sworn an oath must educate themselves, stand down and be constitutional or face another potential Bundy Ranch stand ranch standoff.

This time around we have a chance to be proactive and avoid the potential loss of life as occurred on April 12th, 2014.  We ask Feds a law enforcement to choose the side of the supreme law of the land, the American people, and future generations of Americans who will benefit from each of us doing the right thing for our country.  STAND DOWN and you will instantly become a true American hero.  Opposing us and firing upon us….would be a very very bad choice.  We proved our intent on April 12th, 2014.  We meant peace, but we were willing to die to defend our God-given rights.  Not one shot was fired, and every singlet person in the canyon benefitted that day — except for BLM Special Agent In Charge Daniel P. Love.  If Daniel P. Love is involved in any way with the taking of 3 million acres, refuse his orders and if the federal government dares an unconstitutional “next time”, let’s all arrest him on the spot for putting all of our lives in danger.

================================================================================

Please feel free to review the original Bundy Ranch Standoff which took place in April 2014.

As millions of Americans are aware, Pete conducted the first major interview with Cliven Bundy on April 8, 2014 (Click here to get right to the interview)

The following day Pete was present at Bundy Ranch and recorded the BLM brutalizing peaceful protestors who set out to stop the BLM’s convoy returning from the desert as they suspected the BLM was killing cattle or destroying infrastructure in violation of the law and their own court order.  The video begins as the BLM convoy was stopped in order to demand a full investigation of the vehicles returning from the area seized by the federal government.  Millions of people around the world viewed and shared this video, and thousands of people came to Bundy Ranch on April 12th to defend the peaceful proctors demanding the cattle and land be freed.

Watch what “We The People” accomplished on April 12th 2014.  The unarmed peaceful protestors were met by the Federal Government’s guns of war, but the protestors were backed up by a credible threat of 2nd amendment patriots of the citizen’s militia.  15805c8d-546a-caac-cc5d-c1abb9261745-banner

BLM law enforcement under fire in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY — A federal law enforcement agent who oversaw the aborted roundup of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy’s rogue cattle in April is drawing complaints from sheriffs and the lieutenant governor in Utah over his management style.

Dan Love, the Bureau of Land Management’s special agent in charge in Utah and Nevada, didn’t comment for a Sunday report by the Salt Lake Tribune that included Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox saying the strained relations were reaching a breaking point.

“This is untenable,” Cox said. “There comes a time when personalities get in the way of productivity.”

BLM officials wouldn’t make Love available for an interview. Agency spokeswoman Celia Boddington told the Tribune the bureau needs to work closely with sheriffs and deputies, and the agency looks into incidents and complaints if they’re made.

“We enjoy positive and constructive relations with the majority of sheriffs,” Boddington said. “When we receive specifics regarding these allegations, we look into the incidents and take corrective action if appropriate. However, it is difficult for us to address allegations when they are either not reported to us or reported several months after the event.”

Retired BLM ranger Ed Patrovsky said the tensions date to the 1970s, when the BLM began assigning field rangers. Patrovsky used to patrol a 5,000-square-mile northwest Colorado district spanning parts of nine counties.

“The problems lie on both sides,” Patrovsky said. “Some sheriffs are territorial. They see federal officers as competitors rather than cooperators. Some of the federal officers come in with the same attitude.”

Patrovsky said events including artifact raids in Blanding, Utah, in 2009 and an armed standoff with Bundy’s supporters have brought simmering resentments to the surface.

In Blanding, rangers and FBI agents unearthed human remains discovered in the national monument in 2008, reasoning the site could be a crime scene.

The monument archaeologist objected but was excluded as the federal agents dug up the body with a TV crew filming. The remains turned out to be an American Indian who died in the 19th century.

More recently, Love led the impound operation that sought to clear out cattle BLM officials said had grazed illegally for 20 years on public land northeast of Las Vegas.

The federal agency maintains that Bundy owes more than $1 million in fees and penalties.

Federal authorities are still investigating whether crimes were committed during a tense April 12 standoff between armed Bundy supporters and armed federal agents. No shots were fired, and no injuries were reported. Some 350 of Bundy’s cows that had been corralled were released.

In Nevada, federal land accounts for 57 million acres — or about 81 percent — of the state’s total of about 70 million acres. The vast majority of that public land is managed by the BLM

Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie, who dealt directly with the BLM during the Bundy roundup, declined to comment on the complaints about Love by officials in Utah.

Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee also declined comment.

Love’s critics say he has an intimidating attitude and isn’t willing to consult with counties in Utah’s remote reaches. They say federal officers refuse to help with searches and rescues and get in the way when they do.

To patrol Utah’s 23 million acres of public lands, the BLM employs 15 uniformed rangers or field officers.

Seven special agents who investigate violations of federal law related to public lands and natural resources also work for BLM, which administers about 40 percent of Utah’s land.

“This refusal to coordinate, coupled with a lack of any meaningful oversight, has created a perfect environment where the abuse of federal law enforcement powers can occur,” Garfield County Sheriff James “Danny” Perkins said during testimony before a congressional committee.

Perkins and San Juan County Sheriff Rick Eldredge complained that rangers stop citizens without probable cause, even in areas where they have no jurisdiction, “bully” ranch hands, berate tourists for parking vehicles off dirt roads and illegally close roads.

Garfield and at least three other counties have passed resolutions declaring federal authority unwelcome, alleging that BLM law enforcement presents a threat to “health, safety and welfare.”

Review-Journal reporter Henry Brean contributed to this report.

BLM: Keep your drones away from wildfires

drones fireU.S. Bureau of Land Management officials in Nevada are warning drone pilots to keep their aircraft away from wildfires.

The agency says it’s counted at least four instances this year when a drone has flown in or near a wildfire zone where flights were temporarily restricted. One of those incidents happened in northern California.

BLM Fire Management Officer Shane McDonald says he understands the appeal of shooting close-up video of a wildfire using a drone, but says they could cause a tragedy if they hit firefighters on the ground or crash into fire suppression helicopters and tankers.

BLM officials say pilots who interfere with firefighting efforts could face fines or criminal charges.

Bundy: NV showdown with feds a spiritual battle

Bundy: NV showdown with feds a spiritual battle

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy says the April confrontation between the federal government and his family and armed militia supporters was part of an age-old spiritual battle between good and evil.

Bundy, a Mormon, told an Independent American Party gathering in St. George on Saturday that God provided him personal inspiration in the showdown over cattle in Bunkerville, Nevada, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

The Spectrum of St. George reports (http://bit.ly/1pRx8nq ) Bundy said people from across the country rallied around him in Bunkerville because they were “spiritually touched,” and they wouldn’t have prevailed had God not been on their side.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management backed down, citing safety concerns. Bundy’s allies subsequently released the 380 cattle collected from the range during a weeklong operation.

Prison-Trained Wild Horse Adoption a Success in Carson City

ImageCarson City, Nev. – Approximately 200 people attended the second of three annual saddle-trained horse adoption events held at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center (NNCC) in Carson City on May 31. The event was hosted by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Nevada Department of Corrections.

Following a spirited competitive bid adoption, all of the 16 horses offered were adopted and as well as one burro. Bids started at $150 and the event’s top bid of $2,800 went for a four-year-old chestnut gelding named “Sunset.” The average bidding price for each horse was $1,105 and the total for all the animals was $18,800. The horses were gathered from herd management areas on public lands in Nevada, California and Utah and were saddle-trained for four months by inmate trainers in the NNCC program.

Bundys assemble legal team, slam NV Gov. Sandoval takes issue with Gov. Brian Sandoval and Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie for not investigating the BLM

Cliven Bundy

Cliven Bundy’s family said any action it pursues will focus on protecting individual rights and restoring constitutional principles.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The family of a southern Nevada rancher caught up in a showdown with federal authorities over grazing on public lands says it is assembling a team of legal advisers to consider options.

A statement issued Tuesday by Cliven Bundy’s family said any action it pursues will focus on protecting individual rights and restoring constitutional principles.

It also takes issue with Gov. Brian Sandoval and Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie for not investigating the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. 

Governor Brian Sandoval State of CORRUPTION

Governor Brian Sandoval State of CORRUPTION

Two weeks ago, about two dozen family members and other Bundy supporters filed reports with the sheriff’s office alleging crimes by federal agents against people protesting the roundup of cattle from public land.

“Our governor and sheriff should have been our heroes, but yet they remain corrupted,” the statement said.

The sheriff’s office said it wouldn’t comment Tuesday, and a Sandoval spokesman did not immediately respond to an email.

BLM officials have accused Cliven Bundy of failing to pay grazing fees for 20 years, racking up more than $1.1 million in fees and penalties, and failing to abide by court orders to remove his cattle from vast open range that is habitat for the endangered desert tortoise.

Bundy’s statement Tuesday came a day after the head of the BLM said his agency plans to act through the courts to hold lawbreakers accountable in the dispute.

BLM chief Neil Kornze said during a National Public Radio interview on Monday that some people broke laws before a roundup of Bundy’s cattle was suspended last month northeast of Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Kornze’s first public comment about Bundy came on the “Diane Rehm Show.”

Kornze said the agency is committed to working through the legal system.

Agency officials said the same thing when the roundup was called off April 12 amid threats of violence involving federal authorities and armed Bundy supporters near Interstate 15.

Federal cattle roundup spurs Bunkerville, Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to file criminal complaint

Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy is continuing his feud against the Bureau of Land Management for last month’s roundup of his cattle on public land on the Gold Butte range, saying he will file a criminal complaint Friday morning with the Metropolitan Police Department based on the federal agency’s actions.

“We believe the BLM acted illegally. We have decided to file reports at the Sheriff’s Office,” reads a news release from Bundy, 68, and his wife Carol.

The announcement, sent by email at 10:15 p.m. Thursday, asks for witnesses and supporters of his protest of the BLM’s roundup of his cattle to join him in filing the complaint at 10 a.m. Friday at Las Vegas police headquarters, 400 Martin Luther King Blvd.

“If you witnessed or were subjected to any of the following crimes, please come and file a report with us,” the news release says.

His list of allegations includes “men blocking access to public land … harassing people for taking photos” and other claims such as impersonating police officers, threatening to use stun guns and “threatening to fire upon unarmed civilians” as well as use of attack dogs and “men pointing weapons.”

“We believe that the BLM men who pointed guns at over 1,000 people on April 12th near the I-15 freeway south of Mesquite committed a criminal act and the Clark County sheriff’s office should be required to investigate,” Bundy’s statement reads.

BLM officials have been mum about the armed standoff in which militia members in support of Bundy were photographed carrying and pointing assault rifles near the state Route 170 bridge that spans the Virgin River between an Interstate 15 exit, 70 miles northeast of Las Vegas, and Riverside Road on the south side of the bridge.

Governor Brian Sandoval did good by calling out the BLM

Brian Sandoval with his bong

Brian Sandoval with his bong

By Mark Anderson:

He did good by calling out the BLM. But the best thing was the willingness of an armed citizenry to stand up to the BLM which, apparently, is a terrorist organization. It’s why firearms can’t be relinquished, and people need to stand up against tyranny everywhere. We need to demand the politicians running the federal government be arrested. The BLM attack was not about cattle grazing. It’s about starving people to death.

I’m compelled to give Governor Sandoval accolades. He did good by calling out the feds. And it’s good that not a shot was fired and everything remained peaceful. Nothing would be more injurious to the cause of liberty than for people to engage in violence. But it’s not over until that ongoing threat called the BLM is disarmed and all of those terrorists who work for the BLM are fired and doing something different with their time.

What’s more important than electing libertarian type members of Congress is getting libertarian Governors, and then those Governors need to maintain the National Guard, not let the feds deploy the Guard overseas. And then those Governors can use the National Guard to arrest feds. At the federal level, the GOP is a horrible party and needs to be wiped out. At the state level, it’s somewhat different.

Let me say that I have some strong disagreements with Alex Jones on a plurality of issues. I don’t agree with him on everything. On immigration, Alex Jones almost turns me into a Jeb Bush fan. And it’s not just that our ability to leave the country be curtailed by closing down the borders but with what the government is doing we certainly don’t want fewer people outside of the system. That’s on top of the wickedness of scapegoating immigrants for our problems that Republicans and Democrats created by electing criminals.

Alex Jones is right on when it comes to the situation with Cliven Bundy. People need to keep in mind it’s not about grazing cattle. The people don’t benefit from the government’s extortion racket. Why should people pay the government to be killed? That’s suicidal and should prompt mandatory psych evaluations for people who support what the BLM did. This is about the right to make a living and people all over Nevada being able to feed themselves. Really. What happens when all farms and ranches are wiped out by a government that’s apparently trying to soft kill everybody?

Absent some kind of evidence, I would be reluctant to claim that Harry Reid was behind everything as some people claim. If anything, if it was staged, it looks like the Republicans staged it because now they appear to be the “saviors”.

One thing I would like to bring up with Governor Sandoval, him being a former federal judge, are the thoughts of Justice Stevens on the Second Amendment. Let me say that I’m sympathetic to the arguments for gun control because I abhor violence. If gun control worked to reduce violence that would be a very nice thing. I made a decision a long time ago to not have anything whatsoever to do with the firearm industry just based on my personal standards. If I were told that I could legally make a fortune selling firearms, I wouldn’t want to do that out of having to worry that just one firearm ended up in the wrong hands.

But here’s my problem with attempts to ban guns. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Too often, because the government does something it’s considered ipso facto legal. Yet if we look hard enough we can find countless examples where governments committed crimes, atrocities. A lot of human rights violations in the United States are camouflaged as benevolent actions on the part of government. As an example: compulsory vaccinations. And I’m not saying the Second Amendment is to stop vaccination programs, which I want to make clear. I’m just bringing up the extent of the crimes of the government, many of which are camouflaged as good things with propaganda. History is filled with examples of governments murdering people. Justice Stevens glosses over crimes carried out by governments.

Also the government can get a lot of things wrong, as the VA got wrong with me which is something I’ll have to share with everybody. I shared it with Sue Lowden when I was still falling apart due to having done to myself what the VA wanted to do to me. And as I regain myself, I want to make clear there’s not an ounce of hostility for anybody in particular that I have. In many ways, it’s relaxing to be able to call out the government for its crimes.

I apologize to the person who made this argument before me, but I haven’t yet seen it myself. If guns are only meant for people in the employ of the government, then why even have a Second Amendment? Does the government need to remind itself not to disarm itself? Is the government on the verge of relinquishing all of its firearms? If only the sovereign has firearms, who amongst us could violate the “right” of the sovereign to have firearms, consequently needing to remind people of this inalienable right of the sovereign?

I believe people should be able to have as much firepower as the government has, absent weapons of mass destruction which I believe should be eliminated and no man on earth should possess.

And the reason why veterans shouldn’t become depressed and kill themselves. Our purpose is to undermine the credibility and the legitimacy of the federal government. Our purpose is to expose the pack of criminals who run government. Continue reading

Former Nevada BLM director Ronald Wenker receives 3 life sentences for sexual assault

WCSO NEWS — Reno resident Ronald Wenker was sentenced to serve three life terms in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of Sexual Assault and one count of Lewdness with a Minor Under the Age of 14 based on an investigation initiated by the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in August of 2012.

Wenker, a former Director of the Bureau of Land Management in Nevada, pleaded guilty to all three charges in the 2nd Judicial District Court of Nevada on February 21, 2013 and was sentenced on May 14. Wenker could be eligible for parole after 30 years.

Ronald Wenker Reno Nevada BLM Busted on sex crimes

On August 7, 2012, investigators from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office arrested Wenker on multiple charges of Sexual Assault and Lewdness with a Child under the age of 14. It’s believed the sexual abuse occurred multiple times over several years.

The Sheriff’s Office initiated the investigation on Monday, August 6, 2012 at approximately 10:47 p.m., when they were dispatched to an undisclosed residence in Washoe County.  Sheriff’s Detectives were called out to continue the investigation. The victim advised Detectives that she had been inappropriately touched by a relative over the course of 5 years.  The victim identified Wenker as the relative.

After detectives corroborated what the victim had told them pertaining to Wenker’s acts, Wenker was taken into custody and charged.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public that sexual abuse can occur over many years and is often easily concealed or committed by individuals close to the victim. Sexual abuse cases are among the most difficult to investigate as they often require the victim to come forward and disclose the abuse.
