Nevada Uprising: Cliven Bundy & Right-Wing Militias declare War on the US

Nevada criminal Cliven Bundy, became a conservative cause célèbre as Bundy set himself up as Simon de Montfort, battling the injustice and tyranny of the Federal Government.
"My forefathers have been up and down the Virgin Valley ever since 1877. All these rights I claim have been created through pre-emptive rights and beneficial use of the forage and the water. I have been here longer." Cliven Bundy
Bundy owes over $1,000,000 in fees for grazing on Federal Lands, when in 1993 he decided to stop paying fees for using public lands. Since then he has lost numerous court cases.

But, the Right-Wing Wurlitzer of Outrage stoked the flames and invited Militias to stand with Bundy against the Federal Government.

Of course, the issue isn't complex Bundy, is a member of the 1% who feels that public lands and natural resources belong to him to do with as he pleases and understands that laws and regulations are for the little people NOT a Job Creating Plutocratic Noble of Nevada.

Bundy and his Tea Party Terrorists have repeatedly asserted Bundy owns the land, but he of course has no legal documents or land deeds to back up their claim.

Right-Wingers bow and scrap to the Plutocracy and desire the destruction of the United States of America and the institution of a Neo-Feudal Nation with the 1% controlling Fiefdoms free of Washington DC "Tyranny".

Tyranny, in the minds of right-wingers, is losing the freedom to oppress minorities, dominate women and rape and pillage natural resources for their gain.

Aided by Faux News, Bundy implied he was willing to have his serfs and conservative militiamen declare war on Federal Authorities. Sean Hannity asked Bundy, "How far are you willing to go? How far are you willing to take this?"
"My statement to the American people, I’ll do whatever it takes to gain our liberty and freedom back."
Be careful of anyone who declares they are willing to do whatever it takes for Our Liberty with Your Life.
"This is what I prayed for," said Margaret Houston, one of Bundy's sisters. "We are so proud of the American people for being here with us and standing with us." 
"We won the battle," said Ammon Bundy, one of the sons of the Criminal Bundy. 
While Militias may see this as an extension of the Baron's War against the Crown, Bundy and his family are nothing more than a Common Thieves albeit with big aspirations and the firm conviction of sacrificing your life for their gain.

I must congratulate the Bureau of Land Managament and other Federal Authorities for diffusing the situation. Right-Wing Sovereign Citizens and other conservative terrorists appeared quite ready to murder LEOs and other officials.

Addendum 2:
Via Crooks and Liars, Tea Party Domestic Terrorists planned to use women as human shields.

Addendum 3:
Cliven Bundy gave a news conference yesterday to commemorate his victory while flanked by the white power militias and Oathbreakers domestic terrorists. "Opening that gate should have been the Governor's job and protecting him should have been the Sheriff." Bundy continued explaining that he couldn't get any sleep at his ranch because of the "Militiamen" and "cowboys" laying around. So he knelt down and said a prayer and he received this reply, "Sheriff Gillaspie your work is not done. Every sheriff across the United States of America, take away the guns from the United States bureaucrats."

It's too bad the net hasn't been invented that's large enough to cast over this collection of Sagebrush Seditionists and militia gun-fondlers and tote them away. In the meantime, yes the BLM did well to defuse the made-for-Fox event. Now that we know this is the tactic they'll be using in similar stand-offs, counter tactics need to be developed that will preserve the government's (i.e., our) sovereignty over public lands while hitting these oligarchical "patriots" like Bundy where it hurts.

I have written three posts on this and none of them has stated it quite as well. Good Job! I am going to mention your article, provide a link here if that is ok with you. While I don't need the validation it is nice to have some once in awhile none the less. thanks!

Bundy is typical of a lot of Western ranchers. They had ample opportunity to obtain legal title to the land they used but never bothered to because it was so much easier (and cheaper) to abuse the public domain.

The more photos I see from the region showing conservative domestic terrorists ready to murder civilian contractors and government officials.

The more I agree with the BLM pulling back.

The Federal Government by pulling back should now focus on just wait.

The militia will disband because the Bundy Clan isn't going to pay them to hang around or house them.

When Bundy takes a jaunt off his fief he shoudl be taken into custody.

The precedent that mere use of Federal land is not enough to create title to said land was set in 1796 when President George Washington signed the Land Act of 1796, which stated that the land acquired from foreign powers at the end of the American Revolution was property of the Federal government and there were no squatter's rights, you had to buy the land if you wanted to use it.

These "patriots" think they know the Constitution better than President George Washington? Who was one of the people who fucking *wrote* the Constitution? You got to be fucking kiddin' me....
