I've been following the Bundy Ranch situation from the beginning. And, though I think the BLM was way too heavy-handed, I don't think we'll ever know the entire truth about either side in this. I applaud conservatives and to a degree, even the militias who stood up for The Constitution and the rights of we the people.

But, now it is time for tempers to cool. And, though I don't trust the BLM in any way, shape, or form, I'd like to voice my concern about the remaining militia people in Nevada. I'm seeing reports that some militia members are operating checkpoints on public roads, demanding to see people's I.D. to prove they have a right to be there. Excuse me, but can someone tell me when the Soviet Union was restored and Nevada became its newest province?!

POLL: What do you think Obama was doing while Americans were being killed in Benghazi?

If Mr. Bundy wants the militias to remain on HIS property for his own reasons, that is one thing. For the militias to appoint themselves as the guardians of public highways is another matter entirely, and THEY are now the ones restricting the free movement of innocent American citizens.

Have we traded one set of bullies for another?!

Don't get me wrong. I too, support The Constitution, and swore an oath to defend it. And, given the right set of circumstances I would also take up arms. But is this the right time and circumstance? I do not believe that it is. In my humble opinion, the militias made their point; A legitimate one I might add. But if they continue with their present behavior, they run the risk of undoing any good that has been done. It is time for them to stand down, go home, and let cooler heads work on reaching a resolution for Mr. Bundy

Just curious re: the militia "standing down."

Actually, to me that sounds like a dirty set of words.

I associate that with those words at Benghazi, and look what the end result was. 

As someone said, the private militia does not have a right to patrol the public roads but should have every right in the world to be on Bundy Ranch.

We do not know to this very day if the BLM went home, or if it was their plan to wait until Cliven had absolutely no protection and then run him out of his land by force or by other means, none of which sound like they would be legal and/or court ordered.

That is my thinking Jim, when they think(They being BLM) they will sneak up on the Bundy Ranch and if Bundy resist, they will simply kill them, With the Militia there they will not try such an attack.

Lets hope this is not a repeat of Ruby Ridge ..That was not a good thing ! the more the government goes out of control the easier it get for them to do so .. It is up to us folks to put a stop to gov. overreach .. Get out and Vote !  we have to get our Constitutional Government Back  ..

Thanks for reminding us of the tragic Ruby Ridge affair in which the US government murdered 2 people.

In the case of Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge, the incident was about his selling an illegal shotgun to an informant working for the government. The problem is that there's reason to believe that after Weaver refused to shorten a shotgun barrel to under 18 inches, the informant actually shortened it by a quarter inch to make it illegal to set up Weaver.

The result was the murder of his son and wife. The State even indicted the FBI sniper but he was whisked out of the State by the federal government.

Besides Ruby Ridge, we shouldn't forget the Waco, Texas murders and the Gonzalez kidnapping in Florida.

The supervising FBI agent at Ruby Ridge was William Gore who is now the Sheriff of San Diego County and guess what? He is anti-Second Amendment....what a surprise!

Thanks for the info. We need to keep track of those who pose a danger to the Republic.

And the FBI sniper who took out Vicki Weaver later was employed by the government at Waco. Although he claimed to personally have never fired a shot at the Branch Davidian Compound, empty rifle shell casings were found at his position.

I agree with you.

That would make you or anyone else that chose to "Take them out" a murderer.

Think that through!

RFB, you're right. We must be careful, but we shouldn't be so cowed that we acquiesce to political correctness. How to do that isn't easy though, especially with all the provocations by the government.

RFB, same here. There're have been times when I've wanted to grab my rifle and head out. That may have to come to pass. At other times I believe I've bee too cautious.

There's no need to wear tin foil hats to think the Left is trying to drive us batty as Nancy Pelosi.

The sniper's name is Lon Tomohisa Horiuchi.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
