Oathkeepers Update on Bundy Ranch

Oathkeepers.org posted this update late yesterday. The founder, Steward Rhodes along with other Oathkeepers are still at the ranch. Updating With Stewart Rhodes NOTE: First, at the moment things are quiet here.   99% of the rumors on the internet are either blatantly false or wildly inaccurate.  No strong presence of federal agents has been seen. Remnants of BLM’s recent sojourn here are still present, such as the lights they had put up at their “field-headquarters” and no doubt we are under surveillance of all kinds, but there is no overt, visible massing of federal law enforcement. We are, however concerned … Continue reading

The Connection: Harry Reid and Sheriff Gillespie

Over the weekend many of us were following the events at the Bundy Ranch and wondering why Sheriff Gillespie wasn’t siding with the rancher. In our discussion of the incident our very own tannngl brought to light the fact that Harry Reid was working on a deal with a Chinese firm to build a solar farm in Clarke County. On March 20th, the LVMPD posted on their Facebook page a picture of Harry Reid and Sheriff Dough Gillespie after Harry presented Gillespie with the ‘Sheriff of the Year’ award. Here is the statement from their page: U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid … Continue reading

It’s Not About Turtles, It’s About Water

The following rather lengthy video doesn’t tell us much that we didn’t already know, except for two key things.  At about the 55 second mark the news anchorman at NDTV quotes a former land broker who worked in that area for nearly 2o years and issued a statement saying: “It’s not about the turtles, it’s about water. There are developers working for military contractors that want that land and water for mining weapons grade minerals for industry. They want to sell the land by the highway for real estate development because it’s close to I-15 and the Bundys have been refusing … Continue reading

Nevada rancher’s land surrounded by heavily-armed federal agents, his cattle confiscated

RT April 10, 2014 After 20 years of battling the US government for use of his family’s land, a Nevada rancher’s “one-man range war” may soon end. The family says heavily-armed federal agents have surrounded the ranch as “trespass cattle” are removed from the disputed land. Cliven Bundy – the “last rancher in Clark County, Nevada” – has since 1993 refused to pay fees to the federal government for the right to raise cattle on land his family has ranched since the 1870s, according to the Washington Free Beacon. After years of legal wrangling, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) … Continue reading

NY Following CT’s Lead in Defiance of Gun Laws

From IJ Review: Gun Control Fail: New York’s ‘Assault Weapon’ Registration Is Loudly Misfiring As Deadline Nears By April 15th, any New Yorker that owns an “assault weapon” is to have registered their gun, per the requirements of the New York SAFE act passed last year. But it’s looking more and more like a tiny percentage of New Yorkers are actually doing it. While the state of New York has not released actual firearms registration numbers, the rumors of registrations in the 3,000-5,000 range mean that 99% of those affected gun owners are refusing to comply with the law.

Sheriff David A. Clarke: Liberal Policies Have Destroyed Black Families

This is an op-ed piece written by Sheriff Clarke: From the Washington Times: The latest attempt by liberals to help black people is underway in our K-12 urban public schools. These do-gooders are now defining down socially acceptable behavior for black students in school. Bad behavior is being excused and attempts to hold black kids accountable by enforcing codes of conduct are called racist. Having a sense of discipline has always been considered a virtue, a redeeming quality, but now its roots are claimed to lie in racism. White liberal elites have chimed in about school codes of conduct. The … Continue reading

Drop Your Tattoo !

A man in Maine woke up Tuesday to police armed with assault rifles and a bullhorn requesting that he come out of his house.

SC Sheriff Says Not on My Watch

From Breitbart: Reacting to a Democrat-led proposal to repeal “stand your ground” in South Carolina, Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said it won’t happen on his watch. According to GoUpstate.com, the repeal was introduced by state representative Harold Mitchell (D-Spartanburg), chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus. Mitchell’s bill “would limit the ability to use deadly force against someone illegally and forcibly entering a home, business, or occupied vehicle.” He said such a change is necessary because, “we were taught in Sunday School to retreat.” Sheriff Wright said the idea of taking away or limiting self-defense is “absolutely ridiculous” and he … Continue reading

Detroit Police Chief Puts Thugs on Notice…

Detroit Police Chief James Craig shared plenty of common sense wisdom on guns in a recent interview with WDIV-TV. Even though plenty of anti-gun city officials are on record urging residents to call the police rather than use a firearm, Craig knows that is not always a viable option. Craig also said he wants criminals in Detroit to know they shouldn’t just be afraid of the police — they should also be afraid of responsible gun owners who are prepared to defend themselves and their homes. “A lot of good Detroiters are fed up,” Craig said. “The message should be that, … Continue reading
