Feds Steal Ranchers Cattle in Armed Helicopter Raids: Feds attempt to rub out Family Farmers

In the latest attempt to rub out the family farm, the Federal Government is targeting a rancher in Nevada by sending in armed agents, armored vehicles and low-lying helicopters to steal the ranchers cattle.

Cliven Bundy, who has been fighting the federal government’s attempts to shut him down for the last 20 years, is in a bitter battle that just took a turn for the worse. Over the weekend, armed federal agents from the Bureau of Land Management stormed Bundy’s land, stealing over 500 of the rancher’s cattle.

The government claims the cattle were illegally grazing on government land; but Bundy, who has been a rancher all his life, says he’s been doing it this way for decades. In fact, his cattle are grazing on the same land that his father and father’s father used to raise their cattle.

The trouble started in 1993 when Bundy refused to pay the feds for the right to allow his cattle to graze on land that he claims has been in his family since the 1880s. His family actually owned the land before the Bureau of Land Management ever even came into existence; so how the federal government can now claim they own the land is a bit puzzling.

“We own this land,” he said, not the feds. He said he is willing to pay grazing fees but only to Clark County, not BLM.

“Years ago, I used to have 52 neighboring ranchers,” he said. “I’m the last man standing. How come? Because BLM regulated these people off the land and out of business.”

So why now?

According to the feds, this is all about protecting the desert tortoise. Yep, apparently protecting a turtle is now reason enough to storm a man’s property and illegally steal his cattle.

Just before the round-up began, Bundy claims armed federal agents surrounded his 150-acre ranch.

“They’ve been bringing men in and equipment and setting up a compound,” Bundy told FoxNews.com Monday. “They got helicopters flying low. They got snipers around the ranch. Our access to public lands has been blocked.”

Bundy says he’s extremely fearful that the federal government is trying to turn this into another Ruby Ridge or Waco situation. The BLM has closed public lands in Clark County while they work on a plan to round up the “trespassing” cattle. Only marked vehicles are being allowed into the area and “free speech zones” have been set up several miles from the ranch in an attempt to corral protestors who have made their way into the area.

“I’ve tried to fight this thing legally, and I’ve tried to fight it politically,” Bundy said. “We’ve got one more fight. We the people haven’t fought yet.”

This is video shot by the family who claims the BLM assaulted and hauled off one of Bundy’s sons for filming them steal his dad’s cattle.

“He was there to do some filming when about 11 federal agents pulled up and arrested him,” Bundy told Las Vegas News 3. “They said he was outside of the First Amendment area and they took him down. We don’t know where he is now.”

    “They said he was outside of the First Amendment area” – What does that mean? Was he in Canada?

    Illegals have more rights than American citizens.

    So given the basic gun safety rules what does #2 tell you?

    RULE I: ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED

    RULE II: NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY

    RULE III: KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET

    RULE IV: BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET

    Sadly it’s been going on, or put in place, longer than the African being in office. Gradual.

    You don’t fight a ruby ridge by going to ruby ridge you fight it with the rules of engagement Clinton used against the indigenous Serbs that tried to deport illegal alien drug dealing jihadists.

    I would like to point out to those in the federal government that this ENTIRE country is a First Amendment area. Also Bundy is correct there is one fight left, We the People haven’t fought yet.

  • Heretic2011

    Yes, I believe it is.

    When we the People start shooting back? When will We the People organize ourselves into State Militias and take our State back from Imperial Federal domination and control? Sheriffs are sworn to defend their States. And even if your local Sheriff won’t help, it is your duty to defend your life, family, and land.

    We need to organize, NOW! Into groups. Start in your Home State. Get a group together. Then think of ways to free your State of all Federal authority, domination, and control.

    They’re blatantly stealing property now. And yes, cattle thieves should be hanged. And any Imperial Agent who aids and abets the Federal Empire (the government in DC) is an enemy as well. Unless he or she leaves the employ of the Imperial Government and renounces all allegiance to it.

    So get together with ppl in your State. Think of ways to free your State from Imperial Federal control. And then act.

    I made these 3 images to inspire people to take action. Please take them and share them with more people:

      Let us find their names and publish them online with the tag: “Cattle Thieves.” We as in everyone who reads this; try to find them and ask other ppl try to find them.

      If we can’t find specific names then the names of EVERY Federal Agent in the departments which are closest to this farm, working our way out to further and further away departments, will do.

      So basically, anyone at the closest Federal office to this farm, then the next closest, etc. ALL their names and addresses. And published online with the phrase “Cattle Thieves: You know what to do.”

      • Noctis Wolf

        We (as in everyone here and asking other people to do so as well) should find the names and home addresses of these people. If we can’t hang the Cattle Thieves then being purged with Fire will do as well.

        If we can’t find these specific people, then we should find the closest Federal department to this Farm. Find the names and addresses of everyone at the closest Fed. Building to this Farm. Then the next building that’s closest, etc. ALL names and ALL home addresses of EACH of them.

        Published online with the phrase “Cattle Thieves. Punishment: Hanging or Fire.”

      That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

    Take out “Obama” and put in “Putin.” What would you do then?

    We the American People went to war last time an Imperial government stole our property.

    “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.” Thus:

    “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    Hopefully, when the BLM goes to sell the cattle at auction, they’re purchased at low prices because no one bids, and then returned to the land from which they were just removed.

    That’d be nice.

  • Barn Cat

    No, the real story is that the ranchers refused to pay grazing fees on federal land.

  • Mike Collins

    Well at least they are driving Government Motors vehicles. I can’t think Chevy likes those images.
