Bundy Ranch Trial Bombshell: Agents told to stop day before major confrontation with protesters

Image result for bundy ranchLaw-enforcement officers were ordered by the federal special agent in charge to cease "all operations" hours before an armed standoff at a Nevada ranch reached its tension-filled zenith in 2014.

But they did not. Three law-enforcement officers testified in federal court Thursday that they maintained their positions throughout the night and into the next day, anticipating a bloody gunfight at Bundy Ranch.

The officers told jurors they feared for their lives, prayed to God and thought they would see their partners get shot as cattle ranchers and militia members squared off against federal authorities.

None of the officers explained in court why they were ordered to engage anti-government protesters — and open fire with less than lethal weapons — after being told at least twice to stand down, abandon their efforts to round up private cattle on federal land and leave.

"We were still under threat," U.S. Parks Police Officer Tara McBride said. "My understanding was we were ceasing gathering cattle and we were to remain in place to provide security for the (incident command post)."

This was one of the first times law-enforcement officials have publicly acknowledged the government orders to back down, drawing attention to a little-known detail about the high-profile confrontation.

Lavoy Finnicum was murdered..The assassins should be prosecuted.

I'm with you guys there !!!!  I saw the FILMS on the  MURDER  (as did the rest of the world) and NOBODY WOULD SAY, IT WAS NOT A MURDER !!!!!

BUT WHERE ARE THE REPORTS ON IT ??????   PRESIDENT TRUMP......!!!!!  ARE YOU LISTENING ??????

Sounds like Janet Reno at WACO with the Branch Dividians! That pig should have been hung for those killings along with others! YES, Kate Brown should join her family up in remote Alaska at Brown Town! 

Don't forget Ruby Ridge.......

Ruby Ridge & Waco happened under Bill Clinton's watch.  

Lavoy Finicum = Obama's watch.

Democrats should never be "in control" again... you are supposed to arrest the criminals, not murder their families.

 

an example of the "SS" in America

Senator Chaffetz, of Utah is correct in his statement regarding "trust in the BLM"- - -THERE IS NONE!  The BLM should NOT even exist, it is NOT authorized by the Constitution and, therefore, is an "illegal entity".  Hopefully, it will be one of the "gonezoes" obliterated by President Trump.  

This shows that many in law enforcement, especially the fed, have zero respect for the foundation of this country, and on the contrary they respect authoritarian govts ...while Bundy tried to educate them about the sole design responsibility for the FBI was for corruption in govt, most silently ignored or mocked him.

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
