NEVADA — Do you know about the armed stand-off happening right now in Nevada between cowboys and cops?

Cliven Bundy and his family have been letting their cattle graze on their land since 1870, providing local grass-fed beef to the surrounding communities.

Unlike an industrial factory farm, the cattle on Bundy’s land are not confined in small spaces and injected with hormones — they are feral and roam freely.

"As far as I'm concerned, the government doesn't exist," said Cliven Bundy, when asked why he refused to pay fees to use his own land.

“As far as I’m concerned, the government does not exist,” said Cliven Bundy, when asked why he refused to pay fees to the government in order to use his own land.

Recently, armed officers with the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) began using helicopters to chase Bundy’s cattle off the land. Suspicions have risen that they have also been isolating the cows to cause them to starve to death.

According to breaking reports, a corporation is using BLM as “hired muscle” to grab the land for a natural gas pipeline that runs underneath it, and Senator Harry Reid may be orchestrating the operation behind the scenes.

This is happening while government-loyalist media outlets try to convince Americans that the stand-off is happening because Bundy’s cattle are “endangering desert turtles.”

  • KristaRichardson

    This is the real fight for our freedoms, these are the battles that matter the most. I’m with you in spirit.

    • the one armed scissor

      everyone needs to look at this and understand their duty as a true american citizen… we learned about countless attacks on our freedom in our country… we just all thought that, that was the past and we’ve learned better but money corrupts and we must stand for whats right.

      • Mark Choi

        Freedom to steal. Bundy is a thief.

    • Mark Choi

      What freedoms would those be, exactly?

  • eldon

    Civil war could spur from this

    • George Godfrey

      damn right and i hope it does we need stand up

      • Khope47

        You should never hope for war, especially civil war. Last time, the death toll was unimaginable. Imagine how many would die with our modern weapons? There’d be no one left after the smoke cleared.

        • Brannon

          That is the cost for freedom. The price is worth the end result.

          • Garrett Kozlowski

            DAMN RIGHT! GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!!!!

            One fewer idiot.

      • Dylan Wardwell

        After all other options are exhausted.

    • Mark Choi

      And the idiot side will lose this one too.

  • Rick Riley

    why havent we seen this in the news other than facebook ?

    • Garrett Kozlowski

      because the news is all GOVERNMENT PAID PROGRAMING!

  • Realist

    Ok so even if the officers do leave, now. What’s stopping them from coming back next week or some other time in the near future? The militia has to leave to get back to their families and what not, eventually. The government has time on their side on this one, for sure. Just sayin

    • james remond

      yeah but if you stand up now they might think about the next time. the stand has to come now cause who knows when or what they will try to take next maybe your home cause you forgot to put your bin out thats the goverment for ya

  • those of you who bashed ows need to understand that plenty of people who are not militia, who are not ranchers, and maybe don’t even like ranching … would come to support this family … especially since they treat animals much better than all cops treat the rest of us

    this is not news, as the feds and every regional law enforcement agency in the country have been militarizing to take what their masters want : total control . ’bout damn time folks out on the land realized what we’ve all been up against in urban areas : encroachment, violations of our rights, theft of our property

    now we will come together, and that’s what it’ll take to shut down these unconstitutional actions by government

  • Paul Weisgerber Sr.

    “Senator Harry Reid and his son are US representatives of the ENN corporation”. Isn’t this conflict of interest or something? Isn’t he supposed to be on the American side of this? Can’t he (and shouldn’t he) be removed from office for this? Treasonous bastard.

  • TiredofyourBullshit

    Shoot the pigs. Fucking shoot them, let their sons and daughters realize their fathers were killed because they were nothing but human form rats. Fuck them. Kill em all! 卐

    • Khope47

      Then it turns into murder, possibly construed as an act of war. It also makes them worse than the people they are standing up to.

  • Adam Brian

    Yeah where were all these freedom fighters when Nancy Reagan was driving around LA in a tank stepping on blacks and destroying their homes with a tank. Now all of a sudden everyone is surprised. Where were all these people when Rodney King was getting his ass kicked and tazed. Oh yeah these people were probably cheering the shit. Now it’s you who faces tyranny and police violence. So tell me this. Are you really that dumb to stand and watch African Americans rights being violated daily and think that some day it wouldn’t be rural America. Well now it’s your turn. All the minorities have had their weopons taken away cause they are felons before their teens from the racism so now it’s time to get those evil ranchers and farmers I guess. Wow. I knew this day would come when rural America would be a victim of the same tyranny and oppression they have upheld for so long. Nice. The feds will be back cause the Chinese want their money so good luck Bundy but you are to late. The tyranny has been in effect. The difference between me and you is you actually think you have rights when I already know I don’t have any. You may have won this round but they will get you no matter what so now Mr Bundy is going to know inner city minority harassment. I just want to know how does tyranny taste and feel to you. OK now that I have told you off for the past let’s unite against this tyranny for our future. The constitution. Stand up for it and die for it if needed. I am still on your side Mr rancher farmer whatever as long as you understand how we got here and how we are going to get out of this tyranny. Yeah Reid Obama boner koch brothers unions city state fed. All these need cleaned up of corruption. All the fed is a bunch of millionaires now. Prosecutors judges cops juries public defenders etc…. I could go on and on. Nuke plant workers lol oil and energy companies. All corruption now. It is probably lost but we can still band together now if not it definitely will be lost.

    • Garrett Kozlowski

      LOL did you even read what you just typed?

      • Adam Brian

        Yes I did. You probably don’t understand it cause your not smart enough to. It’s OK kid.

    Obama Truth!!! It saddens me to see Americans against Americans. One side is just doing there Job. The other side is just protecting what they think is there’s. But the one’s who are there to see people get hurt and start a fight= Live by the sword die by the sword!!! I ask that both sides not see the other as bad people or non Americans. See them as humans with a heart that beats the same blood as yours.. The Government owning all land did not just happen over night humans. This started when they took the land from the Native Americans. If someone really has the right to own all the American land it would be the Native Americans. Like the natives learned you can take a bow to a gun fight, now you can not take gun to a war against the greatest army weapons in history. The Government owns the land, and you are putting thousands of peoples life in danger by asking them to come fight. Remember if anyone owns that land its the Natives. That being said the Natives never believe any man should or could own the earth.

    • Freeman

      Natives will also tell you they didn’t own the lands they were passing through and using what nature has given them with Natives giving back. The government does not own any land. NO one owns the earth, the sky, the water, the fire, the children that habitat this planet. It was fear that made all believe we were owned. There is plenty of land for everyone

    Where is the Eagle? GONE!!! Chief to President Franklin Pierce, 1855.. The great Chief in Washington sends word he wishes to buy our land. How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to my people. How can you buy them from us?? Every part of this earth is sacred to my people. We know the white man does not understand our ways. One portion of land is the same to him as the next, for he is a stranger who comes in the night and takes from the land what ever he needs. The earth is not his brother but his enemy, and when he has conquered it he moves on. There is no quiet place in the white mans cities. But perhaps because I am savage and do not understand, what I say only seems to insult there ears. When the buffalo are all slaughtered, the wild horses all tamed, and the hills blotted out by talking wires. Where is the eagle?? GONE!!! Where is the thicket?? GONE!! And what is it to say goodbye to freedom of the Spirit?? It is the end of living and the beginning of survival… P.s. Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired, my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun stands I will fight no more forever… Chief Joseph

    These shitbag pawns don’t even know they’re serving the nobles, the elites, the casino kingpins. And they’re too egotistical, and unthinking to even consider it. They just get off on using violence. Worst scum in society. Homeless people are far more honorable than cops, not that homeless people are dishonorable.

  • TherealWanda Jackson

    If everyone stands together and stop bickering over skin color we can focus on the militarization of America…It was fine when they did this to Black citizens but now it’s a problem…The real problem is citizens allowing the so called entitled to take every freedom we have…

  • perrydu

    Maybe I am buying government propaganda but I find NO evidence that Bundy owned the land in question. We have huge problems with police abuse of power in this country and this web site is trying to expose that but this case is not one they should be featuring.

  • Mark Choi

    This is not Bundy land. The rest of this idiotic article falls apart after that.
