Standoff In Nevada

posted on another site:

---------------------
Yesterday, the BLM stood down and left the escalating crisis in Nevada after thousands of protesters and militia from all across the country showed up to stand with Cliven Bundy and his family who has homesteaded his land for over 100 years.

Corporations turned to the federal government to repossess the land for them, and used the BLM to enforce an illegal court order.

Now... all the 2nd Amendment haters out there need to ask themselves a question. Would the BLM have stood down if the protesters and militia were not armed?

This situation was resolved peacefully, even with thousands of armed "gun nuts" on site defending a man they don't even know, for an idea of liberty they have known in their hearts all of their life.

This is precisely what the founding fathers had in mind when they wrote the 2nd.

Shouldn't need to convince anyone that corporations have bought all branches of the federal government by now. Let this set an example that the government and their law enforcement are not infallible and cannot be trusted to maintain a monopoly on the use of force.

This Could Go Really Horrible 14.Apr.2014 05:54

If what happened at Waco, and with the occupy movement is any indication, the government gendarmes won't stand down forever.

It's very brave and kindly, but probably terribly ill-considered for the Guns"R"Us faction of the survivalist movement to make this stand. I don't want to think about the possible results.

This cowboy rancher Cliven Bundy is said to have refused to pay required grazing fees for the government property "sorta-ranch" for 20 years, but if they are at all reasonable he should just pay them.

When I looked out at the endless desert that surrounds Las Vegas, there was nothing to hide behind! Why make a stand there?

The situation was peacefully resolved, but isn't there something disingenuous about cheering on a bunch of white people defending their rights to land that was stolen from the natives? I suppose a very good argument can be made that is what the founding fathers wanted.

They would want to Stage Such an Incident in the Middle of the Desert, because if an Opportunity arose that If the Most Militant Minded Americans responded to Show Their Strength? ...The Most Vocal and Likely to exert Force Against the Government would be away from the Populated Ares, and Out of Sight of the Public.

Meaning? ...If You could Disarm the Men most willing to exercise the Protection of their Freedoms, the Level of Resistance in the Dis-Arming of America would be a Cake Walk. Leaving the Standard Citizen feeling Powerless to Change Their Position in Society despite recognizing the Fact that they are being Abused.

Take Care,

P.S. - Checkout the Map of FEMA Camps and the Citizen Intern and Relocation PDF in my earlier article. Then Start thinking Like False That People Do. They do not Change their Patterns, and recognizing their Modus Operandi will become Second Nature.

The Map Locations of the FEMA Camps looks disturbingly like a Star Chart. Do You Remember What President is Associated with REX-84 Camps and had Astrological Advisors?

Where is the outrage. Conservatives are so worried about someone defrauding welfare of a couple of hundred dollars, this guy has stolen several hundred thousand dollars from us all.

Why? because this guy is WHITE, so it is ok for him to steal from us all. It is the american way.
