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

You need to READ what I said. I have NO PROBLEM either with the militias being on Bundy;'s ranch. MY concern is if the reports are true that the militias have set up checkpoints on PUBLIC roads NOT on Bundy's property. Please read what people say with your BRAIN instead of your emotions!

This is how WARS get started!

Mr. Forster, the problem with your post was that it came across like you wanted to believe ( maybe the word should be accept)that these reports that the Militia were out on public highways setting up check points like they were State Police checking people's identification were true and without proof you attacked the Militia. You were confirming what Harry Reid said, when he said that they were a bunch of thugs. To be honest when I read it, my first thought was that you were a Liberal agitator who joined the Tea Party. As far as the strong attacks on you from some of our members, don't feel like the only minnow in the pond. We need people who have strong moral values. People who believe that Honor and Integrity are things you give to yourself and Trust and Respect are things that you earn. People who are willing to stand for what they believe in.

Ditto!

I believe the reports that the militia are stopping people on PUBLIC roads and thereby are taking the law into their own hands. It does the TEA party movement no good.

But I do understand many either agreeing with that illegal and dangerous conduct or needing to deny it's happening. God forbid some regular citizen refusing to be stopped by civilians and showing ID and is then shot.

I know I wouldn't stop and show ID. I'd consider the possibility they were cartel members.

Jonathon, the report DID NOT state that those setting up check points were FEDS, it clearly stated they were militia. You may not want to believe that but until you get definitive proof otherwise, please don't post unsubstantiated suppositions. It doesn't help our cause.

Now it you asked me, could it be FEDS posing as the militia, I'd say it could be quite possible. But I have no evidence of that other than prior behavior by government agencies.

So much for my whipping you across the eyeball with a wet noodle. Capiche? :-)

I would say ,the Bundys should be the Judge of this, as my knowledge of Harry Reid, and his viciousness, and his greedy son, who learned how to lie, cheat and steal from his Good Old Dad.      We have not seen the end of this.      Five Billion, they are not going to give up, and they will be back, in some form or another.  I hope people stay there, to help protect this American in need.      I applaud the men and women ,who continue to care for their Fellow Man, and thank them for their Goodness.

“WE WANT GOD” is an answer to the political stress in our country. The stress exists because organized atheism is bullying Organized Christianity. When this same stress existed in the Soviet Union, Christians began standing up to atheism on June 2, 1979, by saying in unison “We Want God.” Because of that stance, they caused the Soviet Union to collapse within ten years, marking the end of organized atheism in the governing bodies of Eastern Europe. Peggy Noonan documented that story in the Wall Street Journal under the title “We Want God.” 

The regime of organized atheism ruled in Eastern Europe for more than 40 years, using oppressive bureaucracies and armed forces to impose its rule. In the United States of America, the many factions of organized atheism are abusing the rule of law to chip away at the religious freedoms traditionally enjoyed by Organized Christianity. This process of ‘death by a thousand cuts’ is sanctioned, even encouraged, by a regime that is imposing the rule of Big Government on our country through the use of oppressive bureaucracies. So far, this process does not include the use of armed forces.

You and I and all like-minded people in our own country can also stand up to the bullying of organized atheism. We can say in unison “We Want God,” and we can say it as we decide whom to vote for on November 4, 2014. This November, elect only those candidates whom you can trust to become servants of the people, not bullies of the people. Elect only those candidates whom you can trust to take Big Government Bureaucracy out of our homes and out of our private lives.

 Stand up to the bullies. Tell them “We Want God.”

I like you. EXCELLENT comment!

 Like the 101st Airborne said in WWII Germany, edge of The Black Forest:  "We are the devils in baggy britches, and this is as far as the bastards are going".

First of all, freedom is not earned by standing down or by peaceful means. Second of all, I believe those reports are propaganda. Hitler claimed the socialists and communists burnt down the Reichstag (false flag), then he declared martial law. So I believe if you want to win a war you attack and attack and attack, not stand down so the enemy can advance forward. Remember, offense is best defense!

Thank you for your balanced and thoughtful response. I realized after I wrote my piece that I communicated very poorly regarding some of my thoughts. I hope to redeem myself in their eyes in the very near future.

You are ok and will survive this.

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.
