Nevada — A Massacre Delayed?

Do you think the Nevada thing is over? Well, you shouldn't, because even the Government says it's not over. Maybe they're waiting till everybody forgets about it before they move again. Or maybe they're waiting till their media toadies have sufficiently demonized Cliven Bundy as a mouth-breathing racist redneck terrorist, so all the idiots watching the idiot box will nod in idiotic approval when the Government wipes the whole family out, like so many did when the team of Slick Willy and Janet Reno did the same at Waco  But this will be more difficult than Waco or Ruby Ridge, because the Waco victims were nutcases, as far as I can tell (death by immolation is, however, not an appropriate punishment for being nutcases, though, which isn't actually a crime), and Randy Weaver was so obscure as to be easily lied about. But going after Cliven Bundy is like going after Ben Cartwright, so it'll be a lot more work to make him out to be an evil scourge to be wiped out so that Harry Reid and his boy can make big money selling Nevada to China. But Jim Goad has it right in the quibcag, and the propaganda campaign goes on. You can always count on the MAG (Media, Academia, Government) to come out against American interests. Here's what Jim Goad has to say at length, from Takimag:

The Vanishing Yokel

Even his homespun-sounding name—Cliven Bundy—hints that he is part of a dying breed. Reputed to be the “last rancher in South Nevada,” he locked horns with the US Bureau of Land Management last week in a highly public battle of wills.

Bundy is a father of 14 and a descendant of a ranching family he says has been grazing cattle on these dusty desert lands since the 1870s. His ranch, near the town of Bunkerville about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, assumed a bunker mentality last week as armed federal agents stormed his land, began rounding up his cattle, arrested one of his sons and Tasered another, and allegedly shoved his sister—a cancer survivor—to the ground.

The feds claim that Bundy owes them roughly $1 million in “grazing fees” that have gone unpaid since 1993. They also say that he’s stubbornly ignored a 1998 court order to remove his cattle from public land set aside for the preservation of the desert tortoise, a creature that federal officials apparently value more than they do cattle ranchers. According to statistics from 2012, the US federal government claims ownership of 81% of Nevada’s land. The feds refer to such areas of conquest as “public lands.” We are told that “the people” own them, which must be the reason why the people are forbidden from owning them.

Bundy, however, is from the old school and says the feds have no jurisdiction over the land. He claims he’s been dutifully paying his fees to Clark County, NV, the whole time. He also says that federal policies have made it impossible for dozens of other ranchers to eke out a living, gradually driving them away and leaving him the last rancher standing in Clark County.

As news of the “Old West-style showdown” spread last week, armed militia members and self-proclaimed patriot types began streaming onto the ranch, escalating tensions and stoking fears that the situation might unspool into another Waco or Ruby Ridge.

On Saturday, federal forces retreated and claimed it was for the sake of public safety, although they vowed to pursue their case against Bundy. It was suggested that their retreat may have been linked to embarrassing revelations that Nevada Senator Harry Reid and his son had been negotiating with Chinese investors to use that part of the desert for a solar-energy project and that the area’s last rancher may have been standing in the way.

During the standoff, a County Commissioner from Utah named Darin Bushman wrote on Facebook that Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins referred to the Utahns who’d pledged they’d come to support Bundy as “inbred bastards” who’d “better have funeral plans” if they dared to show up.
