The Truth About Why the BLM Wanted Cliven Bundy off the Land: Harry Reid and Money and Power

Don’t be fooled into believing that the BLM cares about a bunch of dusty, old tortoises that are supposedly endangered.   

Think about it.  In the name of the poor, dear tortoises, the BLM just spent millions of dollars to round up 300 of Cliven Bundy’s "trespassing cattle."  They managed to kill about 130 of them in the process.  Why?  Because, not only don’t they care about a bunch of tortoises, they also don’t care about a bunch of cows.  Using their helicopters they ran many of them to death in 100-degree desert heat.  Many of those cows were pregnant and weren’t given veterinary care; many of the newborns that survived their births died from lack of nourishment and callous treatment; many cows were fat with milk, having been separated from their newborn calves.  Each cow that died at the hands of the  BLM thugs had a value of about $1500.   

The BLM had enough money to pay thugs to intimidate, taser, and throw Americans to the ground.  The BLM had enough money to hire cowboy mercenaries to help round up Cliven Bundy’s cattle.  The BLM had enough money to send over 80 brand new shiny trucks to Clark County.  The had enough money to arm their thugs with helmet, body armor, and AR-15s.  

Yet, the BLM didn’t have enough money to feed the desert tortoises at the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center, so they euthanized them.  See Desert Tortoise Conservation Center plan to Euthanize Hundreds of Tortoises in Nevada.   

Put on your thinking cap.  Does this make logical sense?  Of course it doesn’t!  Because it isn’t the truth.

In fact, the federal government doesn’t care about any endangered species.  If they did, they wouldn’t allow the wholesale slaughter of every "endangered" critter that gets cooked by SOLAR and chopped up by WIND

So, what do the federal government and their corporate cronies care about?

Cliven Bundy Calls on Sheriff to Start Arresting BLM Feds

In the ongoing crisis in Clark County leadership, Clive Bundy demanded that Sheriff Doug Gillespie do what he is paid to do.  Clive Bundy stood before Moapa Valley Town Hall the evening of April 9 and stated:  

“He is the man that has constitutional jurisdiction and authority, he has policing power here in Clark County Nevada, and he has arresting power, so we elected him and we pay him, what do we pay him to do?” asked Bundy, adding, “Don’t we pay him to protect our life, liberty and property?”

“I love you people, and I love this land, and I love freedom and liberty, and I love the sovereign state of Nevada and nobody can tell me the United States owns this land,” said Bundy, adding that he would pay any grazing fees to Clark County and not the federal government.

Asserting that the land under dispute was owned by the people of Clark County, Bundy asked, “Is the United States government trespassing on your land?” to which the crowd reacted with an emphatic “yes!”

During the town hall meeting, Bundy’s sister, Margaret Houston also spoke about how she was assaulted by BML agents earlier in the day, remarking, “It felt like a war zone and I felt like I was not in the United States….they have snipers, they have helicopters, they’re carrying machine guns, it’s not pretty, it’s like a foreign country.”

Tying Statehood and Education Funding Together

This is a great article written by Shirley Dye, and recently published in the Payson Roundup.  Shirley, by the way, is a Payson Unified School District board member, and she has completed Levels 1, 2, and 3 of the Center For Self Governance coursework.  This Op-Ed was her homework assignment prior to being admitted to Level 3.  
After you read her article, you will understand why we must take action to get our Arizona lands back from the United States Government! Much of our education funding comes from private property taxes. Did you know that in Gila County, 96% of the land is owned by the federal government?  How are we supposed to support our schools with table scraps? In fact, the federal government owns 83% of all of Arizona! Please support HB2700, which is referenced in Shirley’s Op-Ed.  Click HERE for the link to HB2700.
Tying Statehood and Education Funding Together
by Shirley Dye

Why do I tie statehood and education funding together? Because Arizona used to have plenty of money for education, but the federal government overreach has led to a decline in tax proceeds for education funding. By acquiring the public lands that were supposed to be transferred to us in 1912 at statehood, Arizona would have a lot more land under production. Taxes could fund our schools.
