(The following article was sent to me anonymously. It’s a timely, accurate, and thoughtful essay that needs to be read by every American.)
Are you aware that we the people are under assault in this country? Maybe not you personally, yet, but when one group of patriots in America is deprived of their freedoms guaranteed to them by the Constitution, it’s a hostile invasion of all who stand for liberty. And that is what happened to the ranchers in Harney County, Oregon, in the past weeks, and in Nevada before that. There is a systematic taking of our precious liberties.
Why does no one seem to care?
Where is the media on this? Where are the folks who are focused on restoring our trust lands across the western United States? Are we to sit and watch those among us get incarcerated for ranching? For peacefully protesting the egregious treatment they have received from their own government, for years?
We know that these lands do not belong to the federal government. The federal government manages those lands for we the people under contracts that were supposed to be assigned back to the states years ago. The federal government contracts grazing leases to local ranchers. These grazing leases abut the ranches owned by private citizens of the United States. These ranchers, by and large, are good stewards of the lands they lease to use for grazing. But they are methodically being deprived of the use of the lands owned by we the people, even with legal leases to do so. In Oregon, the Burea of Land Management (BLM) is burning grazing land that is under lease to ranchers for grazing their cattle, and the BLM is burning the cattle, homes, and corrals in the process.
Shawna Cox: "We should never be ashamed to be an American….we have to make a difference…this was a man who was killed in cold blood….we need to pray for the men who did this, and we need to pray for the families….This is God’s country. He created the Constitution for us….As a nation, we have to pray."

Victoria Sharp: "Ryan Payne put his hands up out the window, and they shot at him but missed…They riddled the car with bullets….He (LaVoy) was just walking with his hands in the air, and they just shot him. I saw him….After he was down on the ground, they shot him 3 more times….They bombarded our vehicle with bullets, they hit Ryan in the shoulder…We were on the floorboard screaming.."
I’m sure that Fox news reporter Dennis Lynch did not anticipate his actions on April 12, 2014. He suddenly realized that Clive Bundy was right. The Bundy family was right. The patriots who stood facing down the BLM thugs with AR-15s were right. No matter what the letter of the law stated, it was an egregious unjust law. And then, Mr. Lynch discovered what he was made of.
What you will see here is American citizens facing AR-15s, and breaching the gate forcing the BLM to drop their weapons. These American citizens would rather die than be slaves to a tyrannical government.
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.
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?
