“Red Dawn”: Supporters Rally to Defend Family Facing Showdown With Feds

After his son’s arrest, Cliven Bundy posted a statement on his website which read, “They have my cattle and now they have one of my boys. Range War begins tomorrow.”

cliven bundy feds stole cattle

Supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy violated a “First Amendment Area” by staging a rally in support of Bundy, who earlier declared a “range war” against federal authorities in response to a land dispute that threatens to escalate into a Waco-style standoff.

Bundy is currently embroiled in a spat with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over his long standing refusal to acknowledge a 1993 modification to grazing rights on land that Bundy asserts has been in his family since 1870. On Saturday, hundreds of federal officials, aided by helicopters, low flying aircraft and hired cowboys, began rounding up Bundy’s cattle in northeastern Clark County.

The feds say the move is about enforcing the law and protecting the endangered desert tortoise, but the Bundy family says the spat represents a showdown between big government and American farmers.

“We’ve had enough, we’re going to take our land back, we’re done,” said Bundy’s wife, Carol Bundy, adding that the rally was held “to show that we are not standing alone. People are getting tired of the federal government having unlimited power.”

randy weaver was murdered by govt they will murder this cat as well

He's not a cat. His name is Cliven Bundy. 

Randy Weaver wasn't killed. It was his wife and son who were killed by the Gestapo.

Nevada just might be a good place to get it started.  It is going to start some place, some day.

Gentlemen: "Fix bayonets".  All AR's M1A's have bayonet lugs, time to use them.  Don't tell me there aren't any semi auto military style weapons out there!  This country is full of them, that's why this regime is scared of an armed populace.  Lets  not forget our veterans out there. Still a lot of fight left in us.  We WILL defend this nation and it Constitution against ALL enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. 

Hey, Robert S. W., 

I know for a fact that a Romanian AK-47 also has a bayonet stud that takes a 'knife'--lol.  Personally,  I prefer a 7.62 by 39 mm projectile over an AR-15, .223, and think there is just a little bit more "oomph"  in the ammo, IMHO.   What say you? 

    BTW,  I graduated from WATERFORD H.S.,  in Wisconsin !  I now live in the U.P.

Warm Regards,

I saw an episode of Myth Busters a while back and they compared the AK round to the AR-15 round. They put 1" thick glass panels together with clamps and fired from the same spot. The AR penetrated 2 and cracked the 3rd. pane. The AK penetrated 10 and cracked the 11th.

 

I watched the same episode, they used an AR-15 with .223 ammo. The M-16 uses 5.56 ammo and you can get the AR-15 that uses 5.56. With the 5.56 you can use both rounds. I have yet to see any comparison between the 7.62 NATO round and the 5.56 JHP. But the AK-47 is a lighter weapon and one that is easier to keep clean.

Oh, and Thomas, I graduated from Horlick High in Racine.

Brent, if you had been in the Army you would know that the .223 and 5.56 are the same round.

You can not fire a 5.56MM in a rifle made to shoot a 223 should as a Ruger 223. If you have a MIL SPEC 5.56 Rifle you can shoot either round. There is rifles out there that will shoot only 223 but want shoot the 5.56MM, this is unsafe.

Bob R.,   Thanks!!   I needed that.  [smile].   I served with the U.S. Army, in  Vietnam: 68-70, the 2nd tour with the 240th AHC, [door gunner] at Camp BearCat, RVN, and the 1st tour with USARV --CuChi, PhuLoi, and Bien Hoa.  I have heard a lot of  other soldiers claim that, ' if we had the enemies' AK-47's, we would not have lost so many people from jams -- and with our M-60's too!'   I believe it, even if the AK didn't have the total accuracy that the M-16 had... but that is water over the dam, now, and too many good people on the "Wall, in D.C."

Welcome Home: I agree with you 100 %. I forgot about the 47's and the M1 Garand's. There are a lot of foreign gun makers who also made weapons for the military of their respective countries with the lugs.  I prefered the M-14 over the M-16. I carried a 14 in Nam and the .308 was an excellent round for that type of country. 7.62 by 51 mm.  Nam 64-65. Thank you brother for your service.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
