Cliven Bundy Press Release: “All of us are in some measure slaves of the federal government”

Cliven Bundy has been battling the federal government for the last 20 years. The government claims his cattle have been illegally grazing on federal land – land that has been in the Bundy family since 1880s.

The Bureau of Land Management has been trying to make Bundy pay to use “their” land since 1993.  The agency claims this is about protecting a desert tortoise and feds raided the Bundy Ranch under that guise. That’s interesting, though, considering that they had no problem massacring Bundy’s cattle.

Those who are paying attention know what the government’s true agenda is.

Yesterday, the mainstream media went crazy over comments that Bundy made that were allegedly racist.

The New York Times and other media outlets conveniently left out parts of video footage of Bundy talking about the government’s history of mistreatment of black and Mexican people and uses them as examples of how government oppresses people. His comments were spun to make him appear racist.

Here is the full, unedited version of Bundy’s commentary:

Today Bundy issued the following press release about the allegations of racism and what his comments meant:


What I am saying is that all we Americans are trading one form of slavery for another. All of us are in some measure slaves of the federal government. Through their oppressive tactics of telling the ranchers how many cows they can have on their land, and making that number too low to support a ranch, the BLM has driven every rancher in Clark County off the land, except me. The IRS keeps the people of America in fear, and makes us all work about a third or a half of the year before we have earned enough to pay their taxes. This is nothing but slavery from January through May. The NSA spies on us and collects our private phone calls and emails. And the government dole which many people in America are on, and have been for much of their lives, is dehumanizing and degrading. It takes away incentive to work and self respect. Eventually a person on the dole becomes a ward of the government, because his only source of income is a dole from the government. Once the government has you in that position, you are its slave.

I am trying to keep Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream alive. He was praying for the day when he and his people would be free, and he could say I’m free, free at last, thank God I’m free at last! But all of us here America, no matter our race, are having our freedom eroded and destroyed by the federal government because of its heavy handed tactics. The BLM, the IRS, the NSA–all of the federal agencies are destroying our freedom. I am standing up against their bad and unconstitutional laws, just like Rosa Parks did when she refused to sit in the back of the bus. She started a revolution in America, the civil rights movement, which freed the black people from much of the oppression they were suffering. I’m saying Martin Luther King’s dream was not that Rosa could take her rightful seat in the front of the bus, but his dream was that she could take any seat on the bus and I would be honored to sit beside her. I am doing the same thing Rosa Parks did–I am standing up against bad laws which dehumanize us and destroy our freedom. Just like the Minutemen at Lexington and Concord, we are saying no to an oppressive government which considers us to be slaves rather than free men.

I invite all people in America to join in our peaceful revolution to regain our freedom. That is how America was started, and we need to keep that tradition alive.

Cliven D. Bundy

First Bundy had to defend his ranch – his family’s livelihood – from government tyrants, and now he has to defend himself from the distorted character assassination issued by the mainstream media.

  • All of his “supporters” in the right’s media RAN from this man when he said what he said. Cowards. While one might disagree with what he says he should be free to say it–we live in a free country, right? Sarcasm….
    Trying him for Racism in the media as to avoid supporting his right to graze his cattle on what should be Nevada’s land is full-bore cowardice–the sort of cowardice they are always accusing the left of….

    Man, I can’t wait for the 4th of July so I can giddily waive my mini flag at the passing “freedom parade” they’re gonna have…we’re just rollin’ in liberty!

      I assume you are referring to Glen Beck, who is indeed a lying schemer.

  • Getaclue

    Bundy said nothing wrong..he spoke the truth! Seems to me that many are intolerant of the truth.. including those that are so-called on the right. My family will continue to support Bundy and his family!

    A constitution is a written instrument as a creation of the mind.

    Constitutions create countries and states as fictions, and those ‘freeman’ who want to be party to those fictions as countries and states, may ‘choose’ to do so.

    A written instrument as a creation of the mind, is owned by the individual or individuals whose mind it represents, whether or not agents or representatives to that individual or those individuals, drew up the written instrument for its owner/s.

    Slavery being an aberration to the freewill of freemen, has no business in the physical world where men are to be found.

    Therefore, it becomes impossible to be enslaved by a countries government or a states government, all of which have never claimed jurisdiction where the affairs of freemen are to be found, and as a result have never ever acted unconstitutionally towards freemen who ‘know’ where they are to be found.

    Where then, is a country and the states to be found, for this to be the case, and similarly, where are freemen to be found –

    See pages 18 & 19 –
    Maritime Zones and Jurisdiction

    The Bundy’s ought to be ‘very careful’ with their statements and understand what the phrase, ‘We the people of the United States of America’, or similar wording actually means, otherwise they themselves and their supporters would not be within their rights to take the stand they are taking.

    The USA was created with a ‘written instrument’.

    Freemen who choose to be a party to the USA are no longer freemen, but ‘become’ those people known as, ‘We the people of the United States of America’.

    It is for those people who are party to a constitution as a written instrument to ensure that they do not infringe on the natural rights of ‘freemen’ in the physical world.

    Unconstitutionality, has nothing to do with anything, and at best, can probably be thought of as an action that would be taken by the owner/s to a constitution, and those who have chosen to be bound by them, to interfere in the affairs of freemen who know ‘where’ they are to be found.

    It would do well, for the Bundy’s or anyone else for that matter, to read the simple concepts behind the preceding comments, that are to be found part way down the source document linked, under the subtitled heading –

    His press release of 4-25-2014 sums it up. We are indentured to the central government. Period.

    NOT so Fast just WHERE where all these BLACKS when the THUGS attacked Mr. Bundy?
    The BLACKS in the USA are LESS than 10% of our people!
    The WHITE MEN went to HELP Mr. Bundy against the THUGS
    no BLACKS in the crowd no MEXICANS!

  • Bob

    i’ve always considered myself black in the eyes of the government or police! Bundy is very right in his opinion and we do have freedom of speech I don’t see this as rascist at all just a push from the left to make him look bad!

  • Thomas Parker

    I’m confused. How could the Bundys been have grazing their cattle there since the 1880s if the present Bundy property was purchased in 1948?
