WSJ: Was John Brennan The One Who Actually Engaged In “Treason”?


Tim Brown uses an article by the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel to extrapolate the notion former CIA Director John Brennan (See Also HERE) was an Obamunist traitor. The notion arises because Brennan accused President Trump of Treason for merely meeting with Putin in Helsinki.

WSJ: Was John Brennan The One Who Actually Engaged In “Treason”?

When men like John Brennan point their finger at others and cry “treason,” they are attempting to pin the very crime they are guilty of on someone else.

Well, Sebastian Gorka has been upfront that former Obama CIA Director John Brennan is both a “Communist” and a “traitor.”  Now, it appears that the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel may be following that path without coming right out and saying it.

 

In a recent column, Strassel seems to take issue with Brennan’s tweets from earlier this week when he tore into President Donald Trump over his actions in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

 

“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” tweeted Brennan.

 

“It was nothing short of treasonous,” added Brennan, who worked for what could be argued was the most treasonous person to sit in the Oval Office.  “Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”

 

 

According to Ms. Strassel, “This is rough stuff, even for an Obama partisan.”

 

She then wrote:

 

That’s what Mr. Brennan is—a partisan—and it is why his role in the 2016 scandal is in some ways more concerning than the FBI’s. Mr. Comey stands accused of flouting the rules, breaking the chain of command, abusing investigatory powers. Yet it seems far likelier that the FBI’s Trump investigation was a function of arrogance and overconfidence than some partisan plot. No such case can be made for Mr. Brennan. Before his nomination as CIA director, he served as a close Obama adviser. And the record shows he went on to use his position—as head of the most powerful spy agency in the world—to assist Hillary Clinton’s campaign (and keep his job).

 

Mr. Brennan has taken credit for launching the Trump investigation. At a House Intelligence Committee hearing in May 2017, he explained that he became “aware of intelligence and information about contacts between Russian officials and U.S. persons.” The CIA can’t investigate U.S. citizens, but he made sure that “every information and bit of intelligence” was “shared with the bureau,” meaning the FBI. This information, he said, “served as the basis for the FBI investigation.” My sources suggest Mr. Brennan was overstating his initial role, but either way, by his own testimony, he as an Obama-Clinton partisan was pushing information to the FBI and pressuring it to act.

 

More notable, Mr. Brennan then took the lead on shaping the narrative that Russia was interfering in the election specifically to help Mr. Trump—which quickly evolved into the Trump-collusion narrative. Team Clinton was eager to make the claim, especially in light of the Democratic National Committee server hack. Numerous reports show Mr. Brennan aggressively pushing the same line internally. Their problem was that as of July 2016 even then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper didn’t buy it. He publicly refused to say who was responsible for the hack, or ascribe motivation. Mr. Brennan also couldn’t get the FBI to sign on to the view; the bureau continued to believe Russian cyberattacks were aimed at disrupting the U.S. political system generally, not aiding Mr. Trump.

 

Think about that just a moment because on Saturday I reported on the fact that sources have claimed that former FBI attorney Lisa Page has begun to testify under oath that there was absolutely no basis for the Mueller investigation into Trump.  In that report, I referenced John Solomon’s claim that:

 

For any American who wants an answer sooner, there are just five words, among the thousands of suggestive texts Page and Strzok exchanged, that you should read.

 

That passage was transmitted on May 19, 2017. “There’s no big there there,” Strzok texted.

 

The date of the text long has intrigued investigators: It is two days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and the Russia campaign.

 

Since the text was turned over to Congress, investigators wondered whether it referred to the evidence against the Trump campaign.

 

This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses.

 

The admission is deeply consequential. It means Rosenstein unleashed the most awesome powers of a special counsel to investigate an allegation that the key FBI officials, driving the investigation for 10 months beforehand, did not think was “there.”

 

Strassel continues:

 

The CIA director couldn’t himself go public with his Clinton spin—he lacked the support of the intelligence community and had to be careful not to be seen interfering in U.S. politics. So what to do? He called Harry Reid. In a late August briefing, he told the Senate minority leader that Russia was trying to help Mr. Trump win the election, and that Trump advisers might be colluding with Russia. (Two years later, no public evidence has emerged to support such a claim.)

 

But the truth was irrelevant. On cue, within a few days of the briefing, Mr. Reid wrote a letter to Mr. Comey, which of course immediately became public. “The evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount,” wrote Mr. Reid, going on to float Team Clinton’s Russians-are-helping-Trump theory. Mr. Reid publicly divulged at least one of the allegations contained in the infamous Steele dossier, insisting that the FBI use “every resource available to investigate this matter.”

 

The Reid letter marked the first official blast of the Brennan-Clinton collusion narrative into the open. Clinton opposition-research firm Fusion GPS followed up by briefing its media allies about the dossier it had dropped off at the FBI. On Sept. 23, Yahoo News’s Michael Isikoff ran the headline: “U.S. intel officials probe ties between Trump adviser and Kremlin.” Voilà. Not only was the collusion narrative out there, but so was evidence that the FBI was investigating.

 

In their recent book “Russian Roulette,” Mr. Isikoff and David Corn say even Mr. Reid believed Mr. Brennan had an “ulterior motive” with the briefing, and “concluded the CIA chief believed the public needed to know about the Russia operation, including the information about the possible links to the Trump campaign.” (Brennan allies have denied his aim was to leak damaging information.)

 

Clinton supporters have a plausible case that Mr. Comey’s late-October announcement that the FBI had reopened its investigation into the candidate affected the election. But Trump supporters have a claim that the public outing of the collusion narrative and FBI investigation took a toll on their candidate. Politics was at the center of that outing, and Mr. Brennan was a ringmaster. Remember that when reading his next “treason” tweet.

 

Indeed, remember it.  Brennan was Obama’s Muslim convert for jihad here in the US.

 

When men like John Brennan point their finger at others and cry “treason,” they are attempting to pin the very crime they are guilty of on someone else.  Ms. Strassel, while not being as forthright as Gorka about Brennan’s treason, nevertheless, seems to be saying just that in what she wrote.  America would do well to listen and bring justice to bear upon this traitor and the traitors surrounding him, but I have my doubts that anyone in this life will actually hold him accountable.

True Collusion: Obama’s FBI, DOJ & CIA


John R. Houk, Editor

Posted July 8, 2018

Even as the Mainstream Media (MSM) continues to harangue the Trump Administration over Crooked Hillary’s loss to President Trump, more and more documented information is rising to the top like scum purified out of metal. Emails and memos substantiate just how corrupt the Obama Administration’s FBI, DOJ, CIA, etc. leadership indeed was in creating ex nihilo fake evidence of Trump wrongdoing with Russian help.

 

Below are three documented stories of where the actual collusion originated and guess what? TRUMP IS NOT THE CULPRIT!

Bombshell: Even More Evidence of FBI anti-Trump Bias Uncovered!

 

By Onan Coca

FBI-DOJ Corruption

 

At some point, some rational journalist is going to have to start openly wondering if they’ve been wrong about this FBI/DOJ/Mueller stuff all along, won’t they?

 

The overwhelming majority of agents working for the FBI/DOJ are wonderful, hard-working professionals, which begs the question, how did so many anti-Trump, pro-Hillary Clinton agents get in on the Clinton investigation, the Russia investigation, and the Mueller investigation?

 

The material that has leaked out over the last few months has proven that at least 4-5 of the agents had a definite anti-Trump animus and that animus was bad enough that Mueller canned them from his investigation.

 

Now, we’re learning that there is even more evidence of the intelligence community working against Trump for partisan reasons.

 

Here’s what the Hill found in recently uncovered memos:

 

Multiple reviews of whether FBI agents’ political bias affected the Russia-Trump collusion case remain in their infancy, but investigators already have unearthed troubling internal communications long withheld from public view.

 

We already know from FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok’s now-infamous text messages with his fellow agent and reported lover, Lisa Page, that Strzok — the man driving that Russia collusion investigation — disdained Donald Trump and expressed willingness to use his law enforcement powers to “stop” the Republican from becoming president.

 

The question that lingers, unanswered: Did those sentiments affect official actions?

 

Memos the FBI is now producing to the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general and multiple Senate and House committees offer what sources involved in the production, review or investigation describe to me as “damning” or “troubling” evidence.

 

They show Strzok and his counterintelligence team rushing in the fall of 2016 to find “derogatory” information from informants or a “pretext” to accelerate the probe and get a surveillance warrant on figures tied to the future president.

 

The memos prove that Strzok and his team railroaded Trump associate Carter Page (who has still never been accused of any kind of wrongdoing) and used him as a scapegoat to spy on the Trump campaign. Strzok’s own words in the memos damn him for his immoral tactics and obvious partisan behavior.

 

The memos also indicate that certain FBI officials were knowingly and maliciously leaking information from their investigations to Democrats in Congress and to the media.

 

These and other documents are still being disseminated to various oversight bodies in Congress, and more revelations are certain to occur.

 

Yet, now, irrefutable proof exists that agents sought to create pressure to get “derogatory” information and a “pretext” to interview people close to a future president they didn’t like.

 

Clear evidence also exists that an investigation into still-unproven collusion between a foreign power and a U.S. presidential candidate was driven less by secret information from Moscow and more by politically tainted media leaks.

 

And that means the dots between expressions of political bias and official actions just got a little more connected.

 

In response to all of the bad news, Democrat leader Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been trying to obfuscate what is really happening by attacking Republicans for being on Trump’s side.

 

Schiff has even begun mocking a few GOP Congressional leaders as ‘The Four Horsemen,” but Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) isn’t worried about anything Schiff has to say. In fact, to hear Gowdy talk about it… nobody in the GOP “gives a damn” about what Schiff thinks.

 

From RCP:

 

“Let me tell you this about Adam,” Gowdy began. “Adam’s had a terrible last couple of years. He wanted to be the attorney general under Hillary Clinton and no one in the country worked harder to protect her than Adam Schiff.”

 

“He wanted to be the head of the CIA. He wanted to run for California and the run for Senate and the People’s Republic of California, but he couldn’t win either of those seats. So, now, now, he wants to be the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Speaking of the apocalypse, Adam Schiff wants to be the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee,” he said.


“If you ever have — I don’t know — a couple of three months with nothing else to do, I want you to go back, Jason, and think of all the things you would not know if you had taken Adam Schiff’s advice. You wouldn’t know the whole — the spontaneous reaction to a video was a hoax in Libya. You would never have read the first Chris Stevens email. You wouldn’t know that Hillary Clinton had this unique email arrangement with herself because Adam Schiff did everything in his power to keep you from finding out,” Gowdy continued.

 

“You wouldn’t know about the dossier. You wouldn’t know who funded it. You wouldn’t know it was used in a court proceeding. You wouldn’t know about Strzok and Page. In fact, you wouldn’t even be having the show tonight. You wouldn’t be having the show about Strzok and Page if Adam Schiff had had his,” Gowdy finished.

Emails Appear To Blow a Hole in Strzok’s Statement on Page FISA

 

By CHUCK ROSS 
JULY 6, 2018 AT 3:46PM

Conservative Tribune

 

During a closed-door interview on June 27, former FBI official Peter Strzok downplayed his role in obtaining surveillance warrants to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

 

The Daily Beast reported that Strzok, the former deputy chief of counterintelligence, claimed in the interview that he had no substantive input on drafting or securing Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants used to spy on Page, an energy consultant who left the Trump team in September 2016.

 

Strzok also denied providing evidence for the FISAs, the first of which was granted on Oct. 21, 2016.

 

A Republican in the June 27 interview confirmed that Strzok, who oversaw the Russian investigation, denied having a direct role in the FISA process. But the Republican was also incredulous at Strzok’s suggestion that he had little to do with the spy warrants obtained against Page.

 

A new report appears to justify the Republican’s skepticism.

 

John Solomon reported on The Hill that Strzok exchanged emails with FBI attorney Lisa Page regarding the Carter Page surveillance.

 

Strzok and Lisa Page exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages during their work on the Russia probe, which was codenamed “Crossfire Hurricane.” In one Aug. 8, 2016, message, Strzok told Page that “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president.

 

Strzok, who was the FBI’s top investigator on Crossfire Hurricane, sent an email with the subject line “Crossfire FISA” to Lisa Page discussing a set of talking points aimed at getting then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to push the Department of Justice to approve a surveillance warrant against Carter Page, according to Solomon.

 

“At a minimum, that keeps the hurry the F up pressure on him,” Strzok emailed Lisa Page on Oct. 14, 2016, according to Solomon.

 

Strzok also commented on a letter that Lisa Page sent to then-FBI Director Jim Comey offering to meet with the FBI to discuss allegations made against him in a Yahoo News article published on Sept. 23, 2016.

 

“At a minimum, the letter provides us a pretext to interview,” Strzok wrote to Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair, on Sept. 26, 2016.

 

The Yahoo News article claimed that U.S. government officials were looking into allegations that Page met secretly in Moscow in July 2016 with two sanctioned Kremlin insiders.

 

It would later be learned that the article, written by Michael Isikoff, was based on information from Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier.

 

The dossier claimed that Page was the Trump campaign’s conduit to the Kremlin for the collusion conspiracy. Page has vehemently denied all of the allegations, and no evidence has emerged to support the Steele dossier’s claims about him.

 

The FBI and DOJ’s spy warrants relied heavily on the Steele dossier, which remains largely unverified and uncorroborated, in order to persuade a federal judge to allow spying against Carter Page. The FISA applications also cited the Isikoff article that relied on the dossier, though without disclosing that the article was derived from Steele.

 

The applications also did not disclose that the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC had financed the dossier. A law firm for both organizations hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which in turn hired Steele.

 

Despite Strzok’s suggestion of an interview with Carter Page, the FBI did not meet with him until March 2017, six months after the email and two months after BuzzFeed News published the dossier. Page has questioned why the FBI waited so long to interview him.

 

The FBI used other methods to keep tabs on the former Trump aide. As The Daily Caller News Foundation first reported, an FBI informant named Stefan Halper made contact with Page during a conference at the University of Cambridge on July 11, 2016, nearly three weeks before the start of Crossfire Hurricane.

 

Halper, a veteran of three Republican presidential administrations, maintained contact with Page for over a year, until September 2017. That was the same month that the fourth and final FISA warrant against Carter Page expired.

 

Halper met with two other Trump campaign advisers, Sam Clovis and George Papadopoulos. Halper paid Papadopoulos $3,000 in September 2016 to travel to London under the guise of writing a policy paper and Mediterranean energy issues.

 

Papadopoulos has told associates that during dinner one night in London, Halper asked him about Russian efforts to steal Hillary Clinton emails.

 

Strzok’s attorney, Aitan Goelman, did not respond to an email seeking comment for this article.

Judicial Watch Sues CIA for Documents on Dossier Leak to Senator Harry Reid

 

JW Press Room

JULY 06, 2018

Judicial Watch

 

Reid Publicized Clinton-DNC Dossier Allegations Following Brennan Briefing

 

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for records of communications with former Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and his staff regarding the anti-Trump dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (Judicial Watch v. Central Intelligence Agency (No. 1:18-cv-01502)).

 

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid reportedly believed then-Obama CIA Director Brennan was feeding him information about alleged links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in order to make public accusations.

 

According to “Russian Roulette,” by Yahoo! News chief investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff and David Corn, the Washington bureau chief of the left-wing Mother Jones magazine, Brennan contacted Reid on Aug. 25, 2016, to brief him on the state of Russia’s interference in the presidential campaign. Brennan briefed other members of the so-called Gang of Eight, but Reid is the only who took direct action.

 

Two days after the briefing, Reid wrote a letter to then-FBI Director James Comey asserting that “evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount.”

 

Reid called on Comey to investigate the links “thoroughly and in a timely fashion.”

 

Reid saw Brennan’s outreach as “a sign of urgency,” Isikoff and Corn wrote in the book.

 

“Reid also had the impression that Brennan had an ulterior motive. He concluded the CIA chief believed the public needed to know about the Russian operation, including the information about the possible links to the Trump campaign.”

 

According to the book, Brennan told Reid that the intelligence community had determined that the Russian government was behind the hack and leak of Democratic emails and that Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind it. Brennan also told Reid that there was evidence that Russian operatives were attempting to tamper with election results.

 

On August 27, 2016, Reid wrote a letter to Comey accusing President Trump’s campaign of colluding with the Russian government.

 

The Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the CIA failed to respond to a February 12, 2018, FOIA request for:

 

  • All records of communications, including but not limited to letters, emails, text messages, and instant chats, between former CIA Director John Brennan and/or officials in the CIA Director’s Office on the one hand, and Senator Harry Reid and/or members of Senator Reid’s staff on the other hand, regarding, concerning or relating to the Christopher Steele “dossier” and/or alleged “collusion” between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

 

  • Copies of any reports, memoranda or other materials provided to Senator Reid and/or members of his staff by the CIA relating to alleged Russian “collusion” or cooperation between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

 

  • All materials, including briefing reports and memos, audio/video presentations, PowerPoint presentations and any other records, used by CIA Director Brennan and/or other CIA officials to brief Senator Reid and/or members of his staff on alleged “collusion” between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

 

  • All notes, minutes, transcripts, and audio and/or visual recordings made of any and all briefings provided by the CIA to Senator Reid and/or members of his staff regarding alleged “collusion” between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

 

Brennan has come under public scrutiny as one of the suspected prime movers of the “Spygate” scandal against then-candidate Trump and his team during 2015 and 2016 and later against President Trump and members of his administration.

 

Brennan himself has revealed his deep-seated animus toward President Trump and used his media platform as an MSNBC commentator to repeatedly attack the president.

 

When President Trump tweeted about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s firing in March 2018, Brennan retweeted and responded:

 

When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you.

 

In response to the president’s tweet that former FBI director Comey is a “proven leaker and liar,” Brennan retweeted and responded in April 2018 that President Trump’s administration is a failing “kakistocracy.”

 

“Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s unhinged attacks on President Trump help explain the Obama administration spying abuses targeting Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The mere fact that we had to file this lawsuit shows the CIA has something to hide on Obama-era abuses and collusion with Democrats in Congress to target then-candidate Trump.”

 

Judicial Watch filed a separate FOIA lawsuit against the CIA on March 6, 2017, for records related to the investigation of former Trump National Security Advisor and retired United States Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak (Judicial Watch v. Central Intelligence Agency et al. (No.1:17-cv-00397)).

 

The National Security Agency refused to confirm or deny the existence of intelligence records about communications between Gen. Flynn and Amb. Kislyak.

Senator explodes over Reid’s ‘bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings’


Tom Cotton 5-25-16

Senator Harry Reid is a loathsome Leftist who has lied to his Nevada constituents and Americans especially when he was the Majority Leader in the Senate pushing through Obama’s nefarious agenda on the American people. I read a WND article that came with a video of Senator Tom Cotton Excoriating Senator Reid’s lying defamation of the recent Defense spending bill that passed 98-0.

 

Think about the numbers from the Senate in passing this bill: 98 for to ZERO against. That means two Senators simply did not for the Defense spending bill. Guess who did vote for the bill after trying to delay it with defamatory remarks against the authors of the legislation: Senator Harry Reid from Nevada!

Senator explodes over Reid’s ‘bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings’

Colleague blasts ‘cancerous leadership’ and ‘sad, sorry legacy’ of minority leader

VIDEO: Tom Cotton destroys Harry Reid over ‘cancerous’ leadership and ‘bitter, vulgar’ ramblings [Published on May 25, 2016]

 

WASHINGTON – Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., unleashed a tirade against Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., bemoaning that, “I am forced to listen to the bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings of the minority leader.”

 

“Normally, like every other American, I ignore them,” he continued, “I can’t ignore them today, however.”

 

Cotton made the comments on the Senate floor Wednesday, while blasting Reid for “his cancerous leadership” and for trying delay a defense spending bill that had just passed by a vote of 98-0.

 

Cotton ridiculed Reid for claiming the bill was written “in the dead of night,” noting it had been public for weeks.

 

“And this coming from a man who drafted Obamacare in his office and rammed it through this Senate at midnight on Christmas Eve, on a straight party line vote?”

 

Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

 

Cotton called Reid’s claim “an outrageous slander.”

 

“To say that he’s delaying this because he cares for the troops? A man who never served himself?” continued Cotton. “A man who, in April 2007, came to this very floor before the surge had even reached its peak and said the war is lost? When over 100 Americans were being killed in Iraq every month? When I was carrying their dead bodies off an airplane at Dover Air Force Base?

 

“It is an outrage to say we had to delay this because he cares for the troops. We are protecting it for one reason and one reason only: to protect his own sad, sorry legacy.”

 

The senator bitterly remarked, “When was the last time the minority leader read a bill? It was probably an electricity bill.”

Cruz, Lee Threaten ‘Procedural’ War on Senate Floor to Stop ‘Lawless Amnesty’


Senators Mile Lee - Ted Cruz AP Photo

Six U.S. Senators have placed outgoing (i.e. lame duck) – Majority Leader Senator Reid – on noticed that if President Barack Hussein Obama unilaterally forces an illegal alien amnesty edict, that audacious Presidential act will cause a constitutional crisis. It is the belief of the Senators (Original Intent) that immigration law is solely the purview of the Congress.

 

Since I agree with those six Senators, Obama illegal Alien Amnesty should be another nail to the coffin of impeachment. God knows many of those nails have already been hammered but political numbers, political correctness, and a cowardly GOP leadership have FAILED to move the coffin from the House to the Senate.

Cruz, Lee Threaten ‘Procedural’ War on Senate Floor to Stop ‘Lawless Amnesty’

 

By Terence P. Jeffrey

November 5, 2014 – 3:43 PM

CNSNews.com

 

Republican Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Pat Roberts of Kansas, Mike Crapo of Idaho, and David Vitter of Louisiana sent a letter to lame-duck Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada today saying that if President Obama takes unilateral action to grant amnesty to illegal aliens it “will create a constitutional crisis.”

 

The senators told Reid that they would assist him in enacting a measure to stop Obama from unilaterally granting an amnesty, but that if Reid lets Obama go forward with such an amnesty they “would use all procedural means necessary” to make the Senate focus on the constitutional crisis they say that this “lawless amnesty” would create.

 

On Dec. 11, the continuing resolution now funding the government will expire. Before that date, both Houses of Congress will need to approve a new continuing resolution to fund the government beyond that date.

 

If the CR does not permit the Executive Branch to spend money on some action, the Executive Branch cannot take that action.

 

“We write to express our alarm with President Obama’s announced intention to take unilateral executive action by the end of this year to lawlessly grant amnesty to immigrants who have entered the country illegally,” the senators wrote Reid.

 

“The Supreme Court has recognized that ‘over no conceivable subject is the power of Congress more complete’ than its power over immigration,” the senators said. “Therefore, President Obama will be exercising powers properly belonging to Congress if he makes good his threat.

 

“This will create a constitutional crisis that demands action by Congress to restore the separation of powers,” the senators told Reid.

 

“As majority leader of the Senate, you have the responsibility of not only representing the citizens of your state, but also of protecting the Constitution through vigilant exercise of the checks and balances provided under the Constitution,” wrote Cruz, Lee, Sessions, Roberts, Crapo and Vitter.

 

“Therefore, we write to offer our full assistance in ensuring expeditious Senate debate and passage for a measure that preserves the power of Congress by blocking any action the president may take to violate the Constitution and unilaterally grant amnesty,” the senators said.

 

“[H]owever,” they continued, “should you decline to defend the Senate and the Constitution from executive overreach, the undersigned senators will use all procedural means necessary to return the Senate’s focus during the lame duck session to resolving the constitutional crisis created by President Obama’s lawless amnesty.”

America’s Leftist Transformation: Steal Elections

Democrats have had a longggg history of voter fraud during national elections. Whenever a ballot election is close it seems votes mysteriously appear favoring a Dem in which Mickey Mouse voted, a dead person voted, an illegal alien voted, a registered voter voted twice or enigmatically more votes are counted than exist on the registered rolls. The Left Wing organization known as ACORN has been caught numerous times with its tentacles in the ballot box.

NOW it appears the State of Colorado will become a case study on how Left Wing millionaires and billionaires have successfully conspired to steal local elections enabling a Leftist agenda to root out Conservative American values in School Districts and Counties to brainwash young minds to hate America the same way that Obama Democrats hate America. This allows a transformative ideology to transform a traditionally Conservative State into a Left Wing State that despises the gun rights of the Second Amendment, forces courts to accept homosexuality as normal rather than a pornographic aberration, forces Christians to comply to alternate lifestyles or face fines for breaking the law in terms of discrimination or hate-speech.

 

Here’s a Breitbart piece that explains the Leftist theft of an American culture in Colorado:

 

 

Rocky Mountain Heist, a documentary that examines how Colorado turned blue announced Thursday by Citizens United Productions President David N. Bossie. Native Coloradan and conservative commentator Michelle Malkin hosts the film, which was written and directed by Jason Killian Meath.

 

The documentary unmasks the “Gang of Four,” a group of cryptic millionaire and billionaire leftists who effectively hijacked Colorado’s political landscape. The four, who were among Colorado’s wealthiest residents, were able to enact their liberal vision for the state in a very short amount of time.

 

 

Rocky Mountain Heist is an important film to educate people about what the left is wiling (sic) to do.”

 

 

“I have been a proud resident of Colorado for six years now,” Malkin told Breitbart News. “When I first got here you could already see some of the signs of the purpling of Colorado. At the time I did not know the back story of the Gang of Four and the very meticulously laid out plans that these shady leftwing millionaires and billionaires had for this state.”

 

Malkin added that the very things which attracted me to Colorado — like the low taxes, entrepreneurial spirit — are the antithesis of the Gang of Four.

 

“What the Gang of Four did was marshal all of the resources of wealthy progressives, hid in back rooms, and were able to pick off republicans who had no idea what was coming,” …

 

…  “The most disturbing aspect of this Colorado ‘heist’ is this model is being replicated across other reliably Red states such as Virginia and Texas – if successful, the results could be catastrophic for America as a nation.”

With just two weeks until the 2014 midterm elections, there are warnings that a new Colorado law has opened the door to possible voter fraud in a critical Senate race.

About 16 months ago, the Democratic governor signed an election law which allows residents to print ballots from their home computers, then turn them over to collectors. Critics say this could lead to voter fraud, and they allege it was pushed through the state Legislature to keep Democrats in power.

Over the course of a decade, a once-red state has become more Democratic – and a new film, hosted by Michelle Malkin, tells the story of how that happened. “Rocky Mountain Heist,” produced by Citizens United, is a documentary which reveals how a wealthy liberal quartet took over the state.

Malkin and Citizens United President David Bossie were on “The Kelly File” tonight to discuss the film.

Malkin said that Citizens United and Bossie “have been absolute warriors in this fight” to inform the public. She said it was even a battle to get the film out, calling it a victory for conservative political speech.

“What happened here in Colorado can happen in the rest of the country,” she warned, explaining that the “Gang of Four” coordinated and used “shady nonprofits” to plot to take over the state Legislature.

“The hypocrisy reeks, it smokes, it burns,” she said.

 

So what is the hypocrisy? As much as we Conservatives correctly wag our fingers at billionaire George Soros for his deceptive Left Wing transforming global agenda, the Leftist tear up and cry about the billionaire Koch Brothers.

 

Arnold Ahlert writing for FrontPage Mag exposes Leftists and Democrats for the liars they are.

 

A screed published Monday by the New York Times editorial board sets the tone. “Democrats have for too long been passive in the face of the vast amounts of corporate money, most of it secret, that are being spent to evict them from office and dismantle their policies,” the paper breathlessly states. “By far the largest voice in many of this year’s political races, for example, has been that of the Koch brothers, who have spent tens of millions of dollars peddling phony stories about the impact of health care reform, all in order to put Republicans in control of the Senate after the November elections.”

 

As the Times reveals, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is leading the charge, noting that in a recent speech, Reid “pointed out that the fundamental purpose of the Kochs’ spending is to rig the economic system for their benefit and for that of other oligarchs.” The insinuation is obvious: it is the “evil rich” Koch brothers and their small cabal of equally evil and powerful allies against the rest of us. The paper further notes that the Democrat National Committee (DNC) has set up a website, www.kochaddiction.com, dedicated solely to promoting that proposition, and “to remind voters of just what the Kochs stand for, and why they raised $407 million in the 2012 election.”

 

After reading all that, one might be tempted to conclude that the Koch brothers are among the heaviest hitters in American politics. This, of course, is false. As the website OpenSecrets.org reveals, among the top all-time donors from the years 1989-2014, the Koch brothers come in at — wait for it — number 59. The same website further reveals that 6 of the top 10 political donors are unions, who overwhelmingly favor Democrats with their campaign contributions by margins of 91 precent (sic) or greater, compared to what they give Republicans.

 

READ ENTIRETY (Lynching the Koch Brothers: The Dems’ Strategy for 2014; By Arnold Ahlert; FrontPage Mag; 3/12/14)

 

In case you missed it billionaires Charles and David Koch are ranked 59th in giving to political causes way behind the more deceptive Leftist millionaires, billionaires and well financed organizations such as Unions. The very lies that Senator Harry Reid brandished against the Koch brothers from the Senate floor is what Leftists actually DID DO in Colorado. That friends is real hypocrisy.

 

This Gang of Four cabal has been known for some time which you will notice if you do a Google search using such phrases as Colorado Gang of Four. I find it astounding the Mainstream Media has no problem reporting Senator Reid’s tirade against the Koch brothers telling American TV viewers by name of the Leftist perspective Conservatives are evil. So let’s name the real evil from Colorado – the Gang of Four: Pat Stryker, Jared Polis, Tim Gill, and Rutt Bridges.

 

Pat Stryker:

 Pat Stryker - Colorado Wealthy Leftist 3

Patricia “Pat” Stryker, a kingmaker in Colorado politics, helped steer thousands of dollars to a congressional candidate who later lobbied for a $400 million loan guarantee for Stryker’s now-bankrupt solar company.

 

Stryker is a founding member of the Colorado Democracy Alliance (CoDA), a collection of wealthy liberals who led a Democratic takeover of the state by working around Colorado’s strict campaign finance laws. The group pours millions into liberal nonprofit groups that attack and overwhelm Republican candidates with money and negative advertising.

 

“They have a web of operations that is highly efficient, aimed at getting free negative publicity launched against any Republican official or organization,” said former Rep. Scott McInnis (R., Colo.).

 

One of CoDA’s beneficiaries was Rep. Betsy Markey (D., Colo.), a successful software executive and political neophyte when she defeated three-term incumbent Republican Rep. Marilyn Musgrave in 2008. Upon taking office, Markey helped secure a $400 million loan guarantee for Abound Solar, a green energy firm in which Stryker was a principal investor.

 

Abound failed in 2012, costing taxpayers an estimated $70 million. It never created the 2,000 jobs it promised for workers in Colorado and READ THE REST (Pat Stryker: Colorado Crony; By Bill McMorris; Washington Free Beacon; 10/16/12 5:00 am)

 

Jared Polis:

 Colorado Democrats Congress

Now, of course, he is familiar to most Coloradans as the US Representative from Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District, first elected in 2008.  Polis, a self-made multi-millionaire, became involved in politics at a young age, and his first electoral office was on the State Board of Education.  He is also gay, and the only openly gay parent in Congress at the current time. (Book Review – The Blueprint: How the Democrats Won Colorado (and Why Republicans Everywhere Should Care); By Richard; To Advance Freedom; 1/10/14)

 

Here are some interesting tidbits on Polis from Left Wing blogger Gawker:

 

As an 18-year-old, he traveled to Russia and made money trading privatization vouchers — you know, the botched, scandal-ridden privatization which wrecked Russa’s (sic) economy and led to the domination of the economy by ex-KGB oligarchs. Next stop: Silicon Valley!

 

In October 1999, right before the first dotcom crash, Polis, then known as Jared Polis Schutz, sold Bluemountain.com, his family’s online greeting-cards website, to Excite@Home for $780 million, including $350 million in cash that Excite couldn’t really spare. Excite sold it for $35 million in September 2001, and filed for bankruptcy a month later. People still talk about it as one of the most spectacular cashouts (sic) of the dotcom boom.

 

He later sold ProFlowers, an online florist, to John Malone’s Liberty Media. (All told, he’s started a dozen companies.)

 

He used the cash to buy his way into politics, getting elected to the Colorado State Board of Education (and changing his name to Jared Schutz Polis, “to honor his mother’s maiden name”).

 

When he geared up to run for Congress, he … (Jared Polis: To Know Him Is To Loathe Him; By Owen Thomas; Gawker; 3/3/09 1:40pm)

 

That shift has been going on at least since 2004 when four rich liberals, Tim Gill, Rutt Bridges, Jared Polis, and Pat Stryker, decided to fund the Colorado Model, a low-profile strategy deliberately designed to turn “red states blue” according to Erik Erikson, a blogger at Redstate.com. As explained by Erikson, the Colorado Model is “one of the left’s most effective stratagems … when combined with the tactics of Saul Alinsky and his disciples, the Colorado Model is akin to a Soviet platoon armed with AK-47s mowing down a militia armed with slingshots.” (Bold text by this Blog Editor – Reaping the Whirlwind: the Colorado Model and Gun Control; By Bob Adelmann; New American; 2/20/13)

 

 

Tim Gill:

Tim Gill is is (sic) a multi-millionaire hardcore homosexual activist in Colorado who funds pro-homosexual candidates in legislative races in order to push pro-gay and sexual-radical causes across America. These are direct donations from Gill; according to reports he also funnels money to candidates through others.  If you don’t know about Tim Gill, you need to find out.  Read articles:  HERE and HERE and HERE. READ THE REST (Tim Gill; from EarsToHear.net)

 

Tim Gill is the most influential gay donor most people have never heard of.

 

The software entrepreneur has spent the last two decades working to advance LGBT rights, often through alliances with both Republicans and Democrats. He founded “Outgiving,” a political donors conference that is the gay rights version of the progressive Democracy Alliance, only with a bipartisan twist.

Gill, a Democrat who is estimated to be worth more than $400 million, has worked closely with leaders such as Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-New York) as well as mega-donors such as Republican Paul Singer and Democrat Laura Ricketts. He was a major force behind the strategy that led New York state to legalize gay marriage in 2011. He was also a top player in the Iowa Supreme Court fight to overturn a ban on same-sex marriage, helping to protect the seats of Democratic state legislators so that the successful legal win would be preserved by lawmakers.

 

“The goal is always political. The question is what laws can we get passed and the difference is that we’re switching focus to a lot of conservative states,” Gill said of the conference, which began in its political form nearly a decade ago and which draws more than 200 people by invitation only.

 

The political gathering’s strength lies in its push to encourage individual donors to give en masse to specific candidates and causes, going beyond the partisan prism, Gill said. The effort connects different types of groups — including those that are not typically part of the progressive coalition, such as Chambers of Commerce in various states — with individual donors.

 

After 2004, Gill, founded the Gill Action Fund, and met with LGBT groups to lay out a 10-year plan — the type of thing Gill says he typically dislikes, preferring shorter-term campaigns — to legalize gay marriage, civil unions or domestic partnerships in 12 to 15 states before going to the federal level either through Congress or the courts. That came to fruition, with gay marriage legal in 17 states now and the U.S. Supreme Court making key related rulings last year.

Rutt Bridges:

Rutt Bridges

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rutt Bridges, is a behind the scenes politico who is also a self-made millionaire.  He created software that benefits energy companies by showing them where to drill.  Using his financial resources, he created a think tank (Bighorn Center for Public Policy) with a political arm called Bighorn Action.  While these two entities ceased operations in 2006, I have no doubt they served as a template for the political organizations later created by the Gang of Four. (Book Review – The Blueprint: How the Democrats Won Colorado (and Why Republicans Everywhere Should Care); By Richard; To Advance Freedom; 1/10/14)

 

Oil drilling technology pioneer Rutt Bridges used his nonpartisan think tank to establish himself as a centrist in Colorado politics, a reputation that led to his candidacy for the United States Senate and governor’s office.

 

However, according to a former staffer, the “nonpartisan” Bighorn Center for Public Policy was a smokescreen for Bridges’s membership in the Colorado Democracy Alliance (CoDA)—a “gang of four” hyper-liberal millionaires and billionaires that swept Democrats into office using shady campaign tactics.

 

“On paper, the Bighorn Center was supposedly nonpartisan—when it got started in 1999 it had people from both sides of the aisle,” said Isaac Smith, who interned for the Center in 2006. “I thought I was going to a nonpartisan think tank; they didn’t wear their extremism on their sleeve—only the lefty groups knew what the deal was.”

 

 

Bridges made tens of millions of dollars creating 3-D mapping software that revolutionized oil drilling.

 

That gave him the means to seek the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate in 2004 and enter the governor’s race in 2005. His short time on the stump earned him a reputation as an “extreme self-financer” for using his personal funds to drive his candidacy. He abandoned both efforts, remarking in August 2005 that he’d “rather work outside the elective political system to make a difference with my life.”

 

By the summer of 2005, however, Bridges had already used his fortune to change Colorado’s political landscape, pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into liberal nonprofit organizations unencumbered by the disclosure laws and strict contribution limits politicians in the state are subject to. In 2004, his money helped Democrats win control of the state legislature for the first time in 30 years.

 

Bridges attended the national Democracy Alliance’s first meeting in April 2005, four months before pledging to “work outside the elective political system” to enact change.

 

 

Bridges has withdrawn from political life in recent years. He closed Bighorn in 2006 and later left both CoDA and the Democracy Alliance. He has not made a federal political contribution since 2010, after giving more than $34,000 to Democratic candidates between 2007 and 2010, including $4,600 to Barack Obama.

 

However, his son Jeff continues to be involved. He served as an aide for Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and his brother Rep. John Salazar. After earning a Masters in Divinity from Harvard University, he became PAC director for the liberal Vote Your Values PAC.

Leftist Propaganda Meant to Smear and Disarm Govt. Criticism


Cliven Bundy 2

John R. Houk

© April 27, 2014

 

Last Thursday I was listening to a Kelly Files report on Fox News. Megyn Kelly was talking about a New York Times exposé on Cliven Bundy. The author of the NYT exposé was Adam Nagourney. The essence of what Nagourney wrote is that in an interview with Cliven Bundy is a racist old bigot proven by statements in Bundy’s own words.

 

Evidently Megyn had not had all the information to form a rebuttal to Nagourney. From memory it seemed Megyn – using an even-handed voice – was regretful that the hero of property rights and the public opinion against Federal government intrusion in appropriating private land or sovereign state land, made racist statements about Black-Americans. I would say public control, but we all know today that Obama and his cadre of Leftists in government does not view “public” as We the People, rather the Obama cadre system considers “public” the bailiwick of top to bottom control of the Federal government’s whim – even ignoring the Constitutional checks and balances of the U.S. Congress.

 

So at this point I kind of shut down on listening to any other reports on television news knowing that even if Nagourney’s information was refutable I probably would not hear. Even when everyone knows the NYT is an in-the-tank Leftist rag these days, its past reputation as an honest source of the news is rarely contested when a story is presented as fact rather than an editorial opinion.

 

In my mind I knew Cliven Bundy was an old legitimate western cowboy. I mean literally, he grew up punching cattle on a family ranch. You have to realize these guys have an individuality that brings to mind the old wild west of cowpokes on horseback riding the range. My grandfather passed away in his seventies in the 1990s. That means he would have about 20 years the seniors of Cliven Bundy who I believe is currently in his late 60s. God rest my grandpa’s soul, he was one of these old cowboys that worked both with horses and with sheep. A combination that would have been a bit contradictory professionally in the late 1880s and 1890s. Regardless of the time span I know from experience my gramps was an honest hard working man that worked seasonal jobs in his older age as a ranch hand or a sheep herder in which he worked in what was left of the open spaces. The thing about these old boys, rather they were hard living party cowboys or Church going cowpokes, they had a bit of a rough matter-of-fact demeanor.

 

Let me share a brief story about my grandpa in his last days when he lived in a Nursing Home. Every Sunday while he could get about we picked him up from the Nursing Home for a day at Church and either a home cooked meal or day of lunch at a restaurant.

 

One of those days we went to Church as usual. We stood during worship singing good old fashioned combo Charismatic-Pentecostal songs with a few contemporary worship tunes thrown in. We sat down and listened to the sermon. I have to be I do have a memory that the Pastor’s sermon was inspiring but I do not recall at this time what it was about. But this one thing I do remember. After we were dismissed from the Service by the Pastor my grandpa did his half-step walking thing with his cane to grab the Pastor as he was walking by to do the traditional pastoral well-wishing at the door. My grandpa got our Pastor’s attention because he wanted to say a few brief words. And trust me – they were brief.  My grandpa had his big whiskered smile on his and reached to shake the Pastor’s hand and said this to him:

 

“That was the best g*d d**n service I’ve ever heard!”

 

Check it out! Even today I can’t bring myself to spell out the words.

 

As the words left my grandpa’s lips to my ears, I was standing directly behind him with my draw dropped and my hands covering my eyes and head while it was shaking. I was incredulous even though I suspected something down to cowboy earth would escape his vocal cords. I dreaded the response of our Pastor.

 

Pastor raised his eyes with a twinkle in them and looked directly into my grandpa’s and with mirth in his voice replied to my grandpa, “Why thank you” – followed by a heartfelt chuckle and a firm handshake.

 

My Pastor with much welcome on my part defused a frightful situation for me. But you know, that was the kind of well-meaning sincerity without thought of circumstantial consequences for political correctness that was my old cowboy grandpa.

 

When old cowboys like Cliven Bundy or my grandfather say something like “negroes” instead of more politically correct Black-Americans or Afro-Americans. My grandpa was not as so-much a Church-going man like Cliven Bundy. If the NYT would have talked to my grandpa they would have heard a term pertaining to Black Americans that is considered heinous hate-speech today, but in the days of my grandpa’s youth would not have been among his peers to be a racist word. Just like I can’t spell out the complimentary profanity my grandpa used toward my Pastor, also I am not going to write the Black American word that is considered – and well should be – hate-speech today. I guarantee my grandpa would not have intended the offensive word to be racist any more than I believe that Cliven Bundy’s expression that perhaps negroes were better off in slavery than the slave-dependence of government welfare today. Indeed, I have heard respected Conservative pundits say the same thing but with much more eloquent terms.

 

Anyway, I have since learned that the NYT and Adam Nagourney actually edited the Bundy interview to show Bundy in the most racist light possible. I have discovered that Leftists like the NYT purposefully smeared the ineloquent words of Cliven Bundy and his old cowboy thoughts that not up to date to 21st century pc language that is more cognizant of what is hurtful and what is proper in a social setting.

 

I have three different stories below that expose the NYT and Media Matters exposé as Left Wing propaganda meant to show Cliven Bundy in the worst possible light and disarm sympathetic American voters from expressing derision against Federal government Big Brother overreach.

 

There are two WND articles below. The first WND article has a Bundy Peter Schiff interview. In the second WND article has two videos of Cliven Bundy making his controversial remarks about Blacks and Mexicans at the end: the first video is an unedited that the NYT and Media Matters did not want you to see and the second is the edited version that is being used to smear Bundy. (The Schiff-Bundy interview and the edited and unedited WND videos are not Youtube videos so I am not posting those.) Then last I have an Infowars.com article that has the Youtube version of the unedited version of the Bundy remarks and then Infowars.com places the edited parts in bold print to see the actual context Cliven Bundy was saying.

BLACK LEADER SAYS BUNDY REMARKS NOT RACIST

Contends rancher talking about harm to African-Americans by ‘leftist socialism’

By BOB UNRUH

April 24, 2014

WorldNetDaily

 

A prominent black leader is coming to the defense of embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was pilloried on Thursday after the New York Times published a quote by him referencing slavery.

“He wasn’t talking so much about black folks, but about the harm and damage that the leftist socialism has done to blacks,” said former U.N. Ambassador Alan Keyes, who also is a columnist for WND.

 

The New York Times, in a report by Adam Nagourney, said Bundy, in a daily meeting Saturday with reporters and photographers covering his case, made the comments that critics are calling racist.

 

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” Nagourney quoted Bundy saying.

 

Bundy was recalling public housing projects in North Las Vegas.

 

“And in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids – and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch – they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do.

 

 They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do,” he said.

 

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

 

Ammon Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s son, told WND that the quotes were taken out of context and that his father was commiserating over the poor situation in which blacks find themselves because of oppressive government programs, regulations and practices.

 

Keyes said that was evident.

 

“I find it appalling that we basically have a history of the leftist liberalism that wants to extinguish black people by abortion [and] destroying the family structure,” Keyes told WND. “All of these things if you just look at the effects, you would say this was planned by some racist madman to destroy the black community.”

 

Discover America’s real black-white history, in “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black and White.”

 

Then when somebody comes along to comment on that damage, the leftists all scream “racism,” he said.

“I think it’s time somebody started to recognize the racism that exists in its effects – the hard leftist ideology using the black community for their sacrificial lamb, for their sick ideology. It’s time we called them what they are,” he said.

 

“Now it’s racist to point it out.”

 

Ammon Bundy told WND: “They took what they wanted. They knew when they were there his comments were not racist. He wasn’t able to completely articulate. That’s just my dad. He is a very principled person.

 

He said he was “there standing right beside my father when he made those comments.”

 

“He was reaching out to the black community,” Ammon Bundy said.

 

“Growing up around him, and being beside him, I never once heard him say anything negative about any race,” he said. “I wish I could say that about everyone else I’ve been around. The black community, the white community, they joke back and forth. My father’s never lowered himself.”

 

Ammon Bundy said his father’s message “was taken out of context.”

 

The point was that the government “has kept them oppressed,” he said. “They’ve never been given a situation to be able to thrive, get themselves out of slavery.”

 

The Right Scoop blog reported Cliven Bundy confirmed he was wondering about what’s best for blacks.

 

“That’s exactly what I said. I said I’m wondering if they’re better off under government subsidy, and their young women are having the abortions and their young men are in jail, and their older women and their children are standing, sitting out on the cement porch without nothing to do, you know, I’m wondering: Are they happier now under this government subsidy system than they were when they were slaves, and they was able to have their family structure together, and the chickens and garden, and the people had something to do? And so, in my mind I’m wondering, are they better off being slaves, in that sense, or better off being slaves to the United States government, in the sense of the subsidies. I’m wondering. That’s what. And the statement was right. I am wondering.”

Video-Audio: Peter Schiff interviewing Cliven Bundy

 

 

Bundy, 67, has been in the headlines over the past few weeks for his defiance of the federal government’s demand that he pay grazing fees. The federal Bureau of Land Management responded with an operation to confiscate and sell off his cattle.

 

Bundy claims that since his ranch operation, run by his family for more than 100 years, was grazing cattle before the BLM existed, his fees should be paid to the state, not Washington. More than 1,000 supporters, including armed militia members, joined Bundy at his ranch in a standoff with federal agents.

 

The federal agents backed down April 12, released the cattle and left the area.

 

WND reported just days ago Cliven Bundy’s interview with radio talk show host Dianne Linderman on the nationally syndicated “Everything That Matters” show.

 

On Easter Sunday, he said he respects the federal government, pledging allegiance to the flag.

 

“But [the government] has its place. It doesn’t have its place in the state of Nevada and … Clark County, and that’s where my ranch is. The federal government has no power and no ownership of this land, and they don’t want to accept that,” he said.

 

“I don’t stand alone,” he continued, “I have all of the prayers from lots of people around the world, and I feel those prayers. And those prayers take the tremble out of my legs. And I can stand strong and straight. And you know the spirit from our heavenly Father, I seek that every morning on my knees. And he gives me some guidance, and I go forth and I actually feel good. My health is good, my spirit is good and I feel strength. I do, I feel strength, I feel even happiness. And I have no idea where I’m going with this. It’s a day-by-day spiritual thing for me.”

BUNDY-TIMES STING: WORSE THAN I THOUGHT

 

By JOSEPH FARAH

4/25/14

WorldNetDaily

 

First of all, let me begin by making an apology to Cliven Bundy.

 

In a slapdash column yesterday, I gave the New York Times more credit and credibility than it deserved.

 

I assumed, inappropriately and incorrectly, that the former newspaper of record had actually recounted the words of the Nevada rancher accurately and in context, given that there was an actual recording of the comments.

 

I was wrong.

 

After the Times smeared as a rock-ribbed racist through the use of selective quotes the new hero of resistance to tyranny in America, there was a new development: The video recording of the actual remarks emerged.

 

To say the New York Times bent over backwards to make Bundy look like an unregenerate bigot would be an understatement. I suggest you view the video for yourself at the end of this column. Does he seem like a hater to you? Or does he actually sound like a man with compassion for blacks who have been systematically abused by a new plantation mentality imposed by government dependence?

 

I did get one thing right, however. I explained it wasn’t really Bundy the New York Times was out to get. It was his supporters – especially elected officials who denounced the heavy-handed and militaristic way the Bureau of Land Management went after Bundy and his family.

 

It’s called guilt by association – something “progressives” formerly denounced. But, in this case, there was nothing to feel guilty about, because Bundy didn’t say anything racist.

 

Meanwhile, the guy who I suspect is the mastermind of the efforts by government to make an example of Cliven Bundy yesterday showed his own hand.

 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called on all of his “progressive” friends to form a “united front” against Bundy.

 

Experience more of Joseph Farah’s no-nonsense truth-telling in his books, audio and video products, featured in the WND Superstore

 

For those of you untrained in the tactical and strategic arts of the totalitarian left, let me explain that terminology. “United front” has special meaning to only one group – communists. If you doubt what I, a former commie, have to say about it, just Google the term. See for yourself. What Harry Reid’s use of this term suggests is the left considers Cliven Bundy and all those rallying around his cause to be the most important target of the day. The “progressives” are apoplectic about this showdown in the desert. After all, they are supposed to be the champions of hardworking people. The government is supposed to be the friend and savior of working people. Yet, what Cliven Bundy has done, using “progressive” terminology, is to “heighten the contradictions” of socialist reality.

 

Therefore, as the left often concludes in such cases, he must be destroyed.

 

That’s why Harry Reid calls him a “domestic terrorist.” That’s why Harry Reid calls for a “united front” against this simple, seemingly powerless rancher. That’s why Harry Reid strangely said after the standoff in the desert was defused, “It’s not over.”

 

The left has big plans for Cliven Bundy.

 

The left sees Bundy as a real threat.

 

And I suspect that’s why the official mouthpiece of the establishment left – the New York Times – jeopardized what’s left of its own reputation by misconstruing and misrepresenting Bundy’s remarks.

 

He’s that dangerous!

 

That’s why it was so important to demonize him as a “racist.” They want to use him as a dividing point: Line up behind the “racist” or against him. That’s the strategy – even though race is not even an issue in the controversy Bundy started by merely doing what his family has been doing in the Nevada desert for over 100 years.

 

Do you get it?

 

He’s a symbol. For some of us he’s a symbol of a fight against encroaching tyranny. For others he’s a symbol of resistance to achieving their socialist panacea.

 

It’s the old divide-and-conquer strategy.

 

They can’t win with the facts, with reality, with truth. So they need to create a fog to obscure what’s really taking place on the ground.

Unedited Video Shows Bundy Making Pro-Black, Pro-Mexican Comments

The controversy over Cliven Bundy’s “racist” remarks has taken a new turn after longer unedited footage emerged showing the Nevada cattle rancher making pro-black and pro-Mexican comments that were excised out of media reports.

 

VIDEO: Cliven Bundy (Full) Controversial Remarks April 19, 2014

 

[Blog Editor: I included the below information from Youtube that was not a part of the Infowars.com news story.]

 

Posted by Allen Gwinn

Published: Apr 24, 2014 8:29 am

**** UPDATED “PRE” REMARKS: http://youtu.be/v6xjGPmAckg
**** CNN soundbite version: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/…

Several comments here point out earlier remarks made by Bundy and claim these are taken out of context. In the interest of fairness, the above is a followup video of those remarks.

Full version of race remarks made by Bundy that have generated some controversy. If you’re looking for a more hacked-up soundbite version that makes him look more like a racist, you might want to check out what CNN did to him at the link (above)

 

The full clip illustrates how the original New York Times report edited out statements made by Bundy both before and after his supposedly “racist” remarks, which when taken in their full context actually constitute a pro-minority position. Media Matters also cut out these crucial comments from their YouTube upload of Bundy’s remarks.

 

Bundy’s full comments are reprinted below, with the parts not printed by the New York Times and other media outlets highlighted in bold.

 

…” and so what I’ve testified to ya’, I was in the WATTS riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen the last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people is thinking they did not have their freedom; they didn’t have these things, and they didn’t have them.

 

We’ve progressed quite a bit from that day until now, and sure don’t want to go back; we sure don’t want the colored people to go back to that point; we sure don’t want the Mexican people to go back to that point; and we can make a difference right now by taking care of some of these bureaucracies, and do it in a peaceful way.

 

Let me tell… talk to you about the Mexicans, and these are just things I know about the negroes. I want to tell you one more thing I know about the negro.

 

When I go, went, go to Las Vegas, North Las Vegas; and I would see these little government houses, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids…. and there was always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch. They didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for the kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for the young girls to do.

 

And because they were basically on government subsidy – so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never, they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered are they were better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things? Or are they better off under government subsidy?

 

You know they didn’t get more freedom, uh they got less freedom – they got less family life, and their happiness -you could see it in their faces- they were not happy sitting on that concrete sidewalk. Down there they was probably growing their turnips – so that’s all government, that’s not freedom.

 

Now, let me talk about the Spanish people. You know I understand that they come over here against our constitution and cross our borders. But they’re here and they’re people – and I’ve worked side-by-side a lot of them.

 

Don’t tell me they don’t work, and don’t tell me they don’t pay taxes. And don’t tell me they don’t have better family structure than most of us white people. When you see those Mexican families, they’re together, they picnic together, they’re spending their time together, and I’ll tell you in my way of thinking they’re awful nice people.

 

And we need to have those people join us and be with us…. not, not come to our party.

 

While Bundy’s use of terms such as “negro,” “colored people” and references to picking cotton are undoubtedly politically incorrect (though not unsurprising for a 67-year-old farmer), when taken in its full context, his argument is actually anti-racist in that it laments the plight of black families who have been caught in the trap of dependency on government.

 

The comments that were also vehemently pro-Mexican were not included in any of the mainstream reports which smeared Bundy as a racist.

 

“What’s more sad than the refusal to openly discuss the issues – is how quickly the conservative right is willing to throw Bundy to the wolves based solely on the New York Times and Media Matters opinion,” writes the Conservative Treehouse blog, noting that Bundy’s comments are no more controversial than those made by Shirley Sherrod, who was staunchly defended by leftists.

 

While Bundy’s remarks have been spun as a racist call for a return to slavery, he is clearly using references to slavery only to make a point that blacks are no better off living under the economic slavery of the welfare state.

 

Furthermore, Bundy’s argument that, “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail,” is clearly directed at the government’s treatment of black people and is therefore a defense of and not an attack on black Americans.

 

“It is 100% clear that Cliven Bundy is not saying that blacks should be slaves picking cotton, but that the federal government has created conditions for them so terrible, that their current situation may actually be worse,” writes Jack Flash. “And he’s not blaming blacks for the issues of abortions, and crime and broken families, he’s blaming the Feds. This is the exact opposite of a racist, this is an advocate for the welfare and best interests of blacks. Racist? Why is he praising Mexicans as better than whites, if he’s some sort of white supremacist racist?”

Bundy Ranch Reports You Probably Didn’t Hear from MSM


Cliven Bundy

Cliven Bundy

 

John R. Houk

© April 23, 2014

 

Below is some information that hopefully brings some clarity that the Mainstream Media (MSM) if failing to report to the American public. If you have been paying closer attention than I you may have already realized the BLM attack on Bundy Ranch and the Bundy cattle is yet more nefarious scandals from the Democratic Party. Particularly from Senator Harry Reid (NV-D) who is the Senate Majority Leader. As the Senate Majority Leader you have to realize that places Read into one of the most powerful positions in the U.S. government. Senator Reid is no rookie to nefarious scandals but he seems to be made of the same Teflon that many powerful Dems of the past and present. Including the Clinton family and our current President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama. I’d say it would be a good guess Obama has his hands in the Leftist cookie jar of terminating property rights and Liberty that Senator Reid seems more associated with in this current exploitation of We the People.

 

These posts are largely the work of Justin O. Smith who as a contributor had sent his own report on the BLM vs. Bundy Ranch standoff, “Violations of the Constitution”. I have also incorporated corroborating reports outside of my Smith conduit ending with a WND report that shows how the MSM is smearing Cliven Bundy’s image with false or warped quotations to make him look like a violent Right Wing terrorist. That imaging by the MSM and Senator Harry Reid is a load of evil propaganda on the scale of the evil Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

 

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels

 

After you read the below reports you should be shocked on the path of so-called “Change” President Obama and comrades are taking the USA.

Cliven Bundy Update from Daughter

 

Posted by Justin O. Smith

Statement by Shiree Bundy Cox

April 11, 2014

Justin Smith Facebook Note

 

Here’s a statement made by the daughter of Cliven Bundy! It will help many get what’s going on___

At least it should___

Words from Shiree Bundy Cox:

I have had people ask me to explain my dad’s stance on this BLM fight. Here it is in as simple of terms as I can explain it. There is so much to it, but here it s in a nut shell. My great grandpa bought the rights to the Bunkerville allotment back in 1887 around there. Then he sold them to my grandpa who then turned them over to my dad in 1972. These men bought and paid for their rights to the range and also built waters, fences and roads to assure the survival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars. These rights to the land use is called preemptive rights.

 

Somewhere down the line, to keep the cows from over grazing, came the bureau of land management. They were supposed to assist the ranchers in the management of their ranges while the ranchers paid a yearly allotment which was to be used to pay the BLM wages and to help with repairs and improvements of the ranches. My dad did pay his grazing fees for years to the BLM until they were no longer using his fees to help him and to improve. Instead they began using these money’s against the ranchers. They bought all the rest of the ranchers in the area out with they’re own grazing fees. When they offered to buy my dad out for a penance he said no thanks and then fired them because they weren’t doing their job. He quit paying the BLM but, tried giving his grazing fees to the county, which they turned down. So my dad just went on running his ranch and making his own improvements with his own equipment and his own money, not taxes.

 

In essence the BLM was managing my dad out of business. Well when buying him out didn’t work, they used the endangered species card. You’ve already heard about the desert tortuous. Well that didn’t work either, so then began the threats and the court orders, which my dad has proven to be unlawful for all these years. Now they’re desperate. It’s come down to buying the brand inspector off and threatening the County Sheriff. Everything their doing at this point is illegal and totally against the constitution of the United States of America.

 

Now you may be saying,” how sad, but what does this have to do with me?” Well, I’ll tell you. They will get rid of Cliven Bundy, the last man standing on the Bunkerville allotment and then they will close all the roads so no one can ever go on it again. Next, it’s Utah’s turn. Mark my words, Utah is next.

 
Then there’s the issue of the cattle that are at this moment being stolen. See even if dad hasn’t paid them, those cattle do belong to him. Regardless where they are they are my father’s property. His herd has been part of that range for over a hundred years, long before the BLM even existed. Now the Feds think they can just come in and remove them and sell them without a legal brand inspection or without my dad’s signature on it. They think they can take them over two boarders, which is illegal, ask any trucker. Then they plan to take them to the Richfield Auction and sell them. All with our tax money. They have paid off the contract cowboys and the auction owner as well as the Nevada brand inspector with our tax dollars. See how slick they are?

Hey John, Concerning the email and the cross post on Bundy’s daughter’s statement___ Good deal John. People need the REAL TRUTH and they surely are not even getting it from the likes of Bill O’Reilly, Brit Hume or FoxNews, and they damned certain aren’t getting it from the Progressive Marxofascist media of MSNBC. And Thanks John.

 

If WE allow the federal government to trample on property rights and the Constitution in such egregious fashion, when they are so obviously acting in a lawless, illegal and unConstitutional manner, then there will be no stopping them when they come for our private property. Perhaps the lines are not so clear cut or perhaps we don’t have near the support base that the Bundys were fortunate enough to organize.

 

All America must stay vigilant, because this was merely an opening salvo in a Greater War, a Massive All Out Assault on All of Our Private Property Rights … coming down the pike at light-speed at the Commands of Obama, Exec Order 13575, and the Marxofascist Progressive political hacks of the EPA.

 

When One of Us Sees Our Neighbor Under a Bundy type Siege, WE MUST ALL RUSH TO THEIR ASSISTANCE TO RENDER AID AND SUPPORT AND DEFEND THEM AND THEIR PROPERTY, UNTIL SUCH TIME THE PROGRESSIVE STATISTS ABANDON THEIR UTOPION VISION -THEIR HELL – FOR OUR BELOVED AMERICA!!!

 

God Bless You and God Bless America.

The Real Story Behind The Bundy Ranch Harassment with Dana Show

(Hat Tip: Allen West Republic and Justin Smith via AnnMarie Mckcracker)

By danaradio

April 11, 2014

Dana Show

 

By now you’re familiar with the standoff between the federal government, i.e. the Bureau of Land Management, and 67 year-old rancher Cliven Bundy. (If not, check the backstory and my radio interview with him here.) The BLM asserts their power through the expressed desire to protect the endangered desert tortoise, a tortoise so “endangered” that their population can no longer be contained by the refuge constructed for them so the government is closing it and euthanizing over a thousand tortoises. The tortoises, the excuse that BLM has given for violating claims to easements and running all but one lone rancher out of southern Nevada, is doing fine. In fact, the tortoise has lived in harmony with cattle in the Gold Butte, Clark County Nevada for over a hundred years, or as long as Cliven Bundy’s family has lived on the land as ranchers. In fact, the real threat to it is urbanization, not cattle.

 

A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

 

BLM has also tried to argue that the rules have changed, long after Bundy claims he secured rights and paid his dues to Clark County, Nevada. BLM says they supersede whatever agreement Bundy had prior; they demanded that he reduce his living, his thousand-some-odd head of cattle down to a tiny herd of 150. It’s easy for the government to grant itself powers of overreach, but it doesn’t make it right. Many bad things are done in the name of unjust laws. Just look at Obamacare. This heavy-handed tactic has run the other ranchers from the area and now Bundy is the last one. He’s the last one because he stood up to the federal government.

 

So why does BLM want to run Bundy off this land and is Reid connected?

I discussed this on “Kelly File” tonight, video via Jim Hoft.

 

VIDEO: Dana Loesch on Ilegal (sic) Bundy Cattle: If the Cows Were Illegal Aliens They’d get EBT Cards

 

[Blog Editor: This is the part Justin Smith shared]

 

*UPDATE: Those who say Bundy is a “deadbeat” are making inaccurate claims. Bundy has in fact paid fees to Clark County, Nevada in an arrangement pre-dating the BLM. The BLM arrived much later, changed the details of the setup without consulting with Bundy — or any other rancher — and then began systematically driving out cattle and ranchers. Bundy refused to pay BLM, especially after they demanded he reduce his herd’s head count down to a level that would not sustain his ranch. Bundy OWNS the water and forage rights to this land. He paid for these rights. He built fences, established water ways, and constructed roads with his own money, with the approval of Nevada and BLM. When BLM started using his fees to run him off the land and harassing him, he ceased paying. So should BLM reimburse him for managing the land and for the confiscation of his water and forage rights?

 

Cliven Bundy’s problem isn’t that he didn’t pay — he did — or that his cattle bother tortoises — they don’t — it’s that he’s not a Reid donor.

 

**One last thought: For those conservatives saying that since BLM arrived in the late 90s, it’s the law now, well, so is Obamacare.

BLOCKBUSTER: STRAIGHT FROM A RANCHER’S MOUTH

April 15, 2014

FourWinds10.com

Shared via Justin smith via Shane Comeback

[Justin Share-Comment: This EXPLAINS A GREAT DEAL BEHIND THE BLM’s MOTIVATION……Bribes, Water Rights and a whole lot of MONEY INVOLVED!]

 

Immediate family friend of the Bundy’s tells it all in a mail sent to Jimstonefreelance.com

 

This is the jackpot of details you have never seen anywhere else, and if you did, they originated here, spread it around, ARCHIVE AND POST! (please link back to here when posting elsewhere) A Rancher TELLS ALL:

 

B Hunt wrote:

 

I live in SW Utah. I grew up on a ranch less than 100 miles from the Bundy’s ranch. My father knows Cliven Bundy. I know Cliven’s son Ryan. This is not a hoax, it is an action of force by the BLM.

 

The BLM was going to sell the cattle at one of the smallest cattle markets in Utah. No cattle markets in Nevada would take the cattle without a properly signed brand inspection (which the BLM cannot obtain without Cliven Bundy’s signature). The BLM paid the owner of the Utah cattle market $300,000 to do the sale (‘R’ Livestock Connection in Monroe, Utah, owned by one Scott G. Robbins, according to the Utah Business Entity Search). Utah Governor Herbert stepped in and forbid them from bringing the cattle into Utah without the legally required health and brand inspections (which again, require Bundy’s signature) and that no feral cattle are allowed to be imported at all (per Utah statute). Because Bundy claims ownership over maybe 350-500 head of branded cattle, the other 500-700 estimated head of cattle would all be considered feral. BLM officially backed off, but we suspect they are still secretly shipping them through Utah without any permission to do so, to “private” buyers in Colorado. The contract cowboys that the BLM hired to do the roundup are from Sampson Livestock in Meadow, Utah (traitors one and all).

 

From what I understand, Cliven Bundy owns both the Water Rights and Grazing Rights to all of the land where his cattle run. If Bundy failed to use them, the Grazing Rights would revert to the BLM and would be retired, while the Water Rights would revert to the State of Nevada, likely to be sold to the highest bidder (which would probably be a bidding war between mineral companies that are behind this action with the BLM and the City of Las Vegas which is thirsty for water and has had multiple attempts to buy water–through eminent domain from Utah farmers and ranchers–from Utah, which were all blocked by the Utah Legislature and Utah Governor Herbert). Chances are, the BLM has already filed a claim on the water rights so that they can sell to the highest bidder (instead of the state) and are trying to get the cattle off to show that Bundy cannot use the water beneficially (much like what the US Forest Service and BLM both tried to do to Wayne Hage).

 

Now, for Cliven Bundy, he’s not fighting this for his cattle or his own livelihood. He recognizes that he will probably die before this fight is over. He has said multiple times that he is fighting this to wake people up about the tyranny of the Federal Government and also to help wake up the western states about getting the rights to their own land back from the federal government, which has repeatedly shut down ranchers and closed off land. (MO = 1st, get all the ranchers, farmers, Native Americans, and foresters that use the land for positive, sustainable production off of the land; 2nd, grab up all the resources; 3rd, close off the lands to public access including camping, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, boating, shooting, etc.; 4th, sell off the resources to the highest bidder regardless of what that will do to the land, the local environment, or the economy; 5th, collect royalties on the resources in perpetuity; 6th, reduce and eliminate all SLS and PILT payments to the states, impoverishing them beyond belief.)

 

Anyway, thanks for posting about this. It is important for us to be able to raise the appropriate resistance.

 

My Response:

 

Thank you for sending your valuable insight. This contained the details we were all missing.

 

From this we can now firmly conclude:

 

1. The BLM’s actions are not only flatly illegal, they are unlawful, and not only unlawful, they are so unlawful that it took bribing someone with a $300,000 payoff to get them to accept stolen cattle from a Government agency. I do not think that could be topped ANYWHERE else in the world, other than with something like a Mexican drug cartel.

 

So we have a clear cut case of unlawful and prosecutable actions by the BLM in this case.

 

2. The real goal is to shut down public access to these lands. Obviously Cliven Bundy was not a jerk, and he let people go back there to explore. I myself have done a LOT of back country exploring, and noticed in the early 2000’s that they closed down all the back roads about a half mile before the destination they used to go to [in order] to discourage people from exploring the wilderness. Rather than drive the whole way, you had to get out and walk a considerable distance to scenes such as Swazy’s leap, Paul Bunyans Wood Pile, and practically anywhere else you would want to go while out 4 Wheeling. And in the desert sun, that long of a walk was usually tough to do. This resulted in these types of locations no longer being visited, which effectively equaled a shut down.

 

3. The motives are for profit. Rather than manage the lands responsibly, the BLM is stealing it from its rightful holders via corrupt actions and legal loop holes, and selling it off to corporate interests. This is cold hard proof that America is not a democracy, or more importantly a Republic, it is in fact a fascist dictatorship where corruption rules and rights, freedom and honor are irrelevant.

 

The BLM killed hundreds of desert tortoises on purpose

 

They say they had to kill them because they did not have the funds to care for them. Here are two really good solutions to that “problem.” 1. Just take them out in the desert and turn them loose. -OR- 2. They could have taken the three million dollars they said the Bundy raid will cost them, CALLED OFF THE RAID, and SAVED THE TURTLES with that three million. If they had three million to destroy Bundy, they had it for the turtles as well but did not use it for that because tyranny comes first.

 

Steeped in arrogance and incompetence, once again a Federal agency fails to see the obvious. Or perhaps they do see it but they could care less about nature and instead operate as the enforcement arm of a band of high ranking thugs.

 

The truth, in the words of a Bundy

 

Mike Combs By SHIREE BUNDY COX:

 

[Blog Editor: Jim Stone posts the same exact info that Justin Smith did toward the very top. Except Stone gives “Mike Combs” the credit as the source. I am loathe to repeat the same thing I discovered from a Justin Smith Facebook post. So if you wish you can scroll of for Shiree Bundy Cox’s thoughts. Then I’m uncertain if the next sentence is from Jim Stone, Mike Combs or Shiree Bundy Cox; however it is not in Justin Smith’s recounting of the Bundy daughter’s explanation.]

 

Well, this is it in a nut shell. Thanks

 

April 10 2014

 

Bundy Ranch is REAL

 

UPDATE: The Nevada Militia has shown up at the Bundy ranch to kick the BLM out. The governor of Nevada celebrated the arrival of the militia and spoke in support of the Bundys, issuing the statement “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans”.

 

As I suspected, the Bundy’s ranch is on land that the Fed wants to mine for minerals and they need the water that is reserved for the cattle to conduct mining operations. The land has been assessed to have high grade deposits of minerals that are good for military applications and the Fed wants the Bundys out of the way. Adding to the problem is that much of the land is prime real estate, and the Fed wants it to sell it off. EVEN MORE DAMNING is that the best and most prime real estate is actually owned by the Bundy’s which means the BLM is trespassing on much of it anyway. It is neither state nor federal land. There have been numerous attempts to kick the Bundy’s off their property so a tycoon can come in and put a residential development in. So as is the norm, a turtle or fly or slug or whatever has been used as an excuse for an eviction, when multibillion dollar corporations wanting the land for mining operations and real estate tycoons wanting the most prime areas are the real reason, and the muscle of the government most likely bought by campaign contributions is being used to get the Bundy’s off the land after the Bundy’s refused really good offers for it from potential buyers.

 

The BLM is getting so anxious to get the cows off the land that they are running many of them to death, and that is why the backhoes are there to bury them. The BLM has hired Blackwater mercenaries to snipe anyone who “does not belong” there.

 

Bundy Ranch comments:

 

“Feds say it will cost 3 million dollars to round up the cattle and dispose of them”

 

My response: I have the solution to the problem. Hire a bunch of cattle rustlers to go in there and steal all the cattle. They will GLADLY do it for FREE. Then just give the Bundy’s the “three million” for their grief.

 

“Feds say this is being done to save the desert tortoise”

 

My response: I don’t think cows eat turtles. If the cows were devastating competition for them, they would have been gone in the 1800’s.

 

About the “free speech” zone: Has tyranny gone so far that it even has to control where people shout to the desert wind? Obviously so, which is why that same tyranny thinks cows threaten turtles now. Or is it that the land those cows graze on is in fact being sold to China? Maybe Warren Buffet wants it. Who knows? But turtles rule. And they will taste good in China.

 

UPDATE: The cattle are not being killed and buried, they are in fact being taken by BLM supported cattle rustlers, as I said would be common sense. These rustlers have been given brand new trucks and trailers to do it, and they are selling the cattle at auction FOR PROFIT. THEY ARE SELLING THEM AT AUCTION, THE SAME WAY THE BUNDY FAMILY WOULD HAVE TO MAKE A LIVING. So HOW DO YOU GET A $3 MILLION LOSS OUT OF STEALING A FORTUNE IN CATTLE AND SELLING IT? GOOD QUESTION, THE ONLY ANSWER TO WHICH IS OBVIOUS OUT OF CONTROL CORRUPTION.

 

The area is 600,000 acres. That is HUGE. And if you get out of your car on any of the roads you are immediately arrested and taken to federal prison, for committing a federal crime. Infrared sensors are in place all throughout the desert now, and there are numerous private corporate “Blackwater” snipers on the hills. No one has been shot yet, but the state is certainly set for that.

 

Rising up peacefully is NOT the answer. You cannot peacefully remove any tyranny, tyranny laughs at people who think “peace” can bring about change in a system enforced by state sponsored violence. They brought the guns to the party FIRST.

-Original post- After looking over some of the videos and seeing what is going on out in Nevada, I firmly believe this is no hoax.

 

Citing illegal land usage, the BLM moved in on a ranch which has been in place since the Wild West days, and had paid cattle rustlers go in and steal the cattle. Some of the cattle were also killed and buried with backhoes. The only difference between this and Waco is that at Waco people were actually targeted and killed, and with the Bundy ranch, a family legacy was destroyed. Both were grave rights violations.

 

I believe that what happened with the Bundy ranch was the result of continuous encroaching regulations and arrogance of the government, and that the Bundy family actually still had a truthful right to continue using the land under the law. Most likely the BLM was given unlawful orders to destroy the ranch and its cattle and they followed through on them. I am still looking into this story and will post updates. I have been to many protests, and know the CIA ones from the real ones. The video Farganne posted was of a real one, I have no idea why he doubts it.

 

This is a mirror image of the destruction of the hog farmers in Michigan, where a totally out of control government rolls around in arrogance like the pigs they killed will roll in _____

MUST SEE: Citizens Rise Up – The Real Nevada Story the Media Won’t Show You (Video)

 

By Gina Cassini

April 13, 2014

Top Right News

 

Nevada Standoff: April 12th – A historic day when the people rose up and forced tyrants to retreat.

 

The media’s version of the end of the Bundy Ranch siege is that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) simply “left” the ranch and “returned” the cattle out of the goodness of their hearts. CBS News even outrageously reported that the BLM “released the cattle to help restore order and avoid violence“! This despite widely-seen video of BLM thugs tasing Bundy’s son and shoving a pregnant woman to the ground. And the protesters never threatened violence in any way during the nearly one-week siege.

 

The real story was that the BLM refused to give back the cattle, and would not leave the property or disarm, to which they had agreed. The result was an epic standoff that reporter David Knight described as being like “something out of a movie.”

 

Supporters of Bundy advanced on a position held by BLM agents despite threats that they would be shot at, eventually forcing BLM feds to release 100 cattle that had been stolen from Bundy as part of a land grab dispute that threatened to escalate into a Waco-style confrontation.

AMERICA’S NEWEST HERO: MEET THE REAL CLIVEN BUNDY

Calling Reid a ‘warmonger,’ Nevada rancher reveals why he’s unafraid of feds

 

By Sarah Kupelian

April 22, 2014

WorldNetDaily

 

Cliven Bundy doesn’t normally do interviews on Sundays. But this Easter Sunday, the 67-year-old Nevada cattle rancher stepped out of his church, leaned up against the side wall and talked to America about what really matters to him deep down, revealing a side to him not normally seen in media interviews.

 

The first order of business, of course, was the Nevada standoff that has mesmerized the nation, and his response to Sen. Harry Reid’s incendiary accusation that the Bundy side are a bunch of “domestic terrorists.”

 

“The thing about what Harry Reid’s saying,” the rancher told radio talker Dianne Linderman on Talk Radio Network’s nationally syndicated “Everything That Matters” show, is that “he seems to be a warmonger, saying let’s have civil war!”

 

In fact, Bundy said, “We people are not gonna put up with that no more. We’re not gonna have them guns pointin’ at us anymore. Not when we’re talking about an army of ‘We the People’ against ‘We the People.’ We can’t allow that to happen in America. That’s civil war!”

 

Bundy confirmed that he and the ranchers and others standing with him, tired of being abused by a government with unlimited power, are ultimately willing to die for their stance. But, he added, “I do respect the United States government. I pledge allegiance to that flag and honor it very much. But [the government] has its place. It doesn’t have its place in the state of Nevada and … Clark County, and that’s where my ranch is. The federal government has no power and no ownership of this land, and they don’t want to accept that.”

 

Then, maybe because it was Easter Sunday, the interview went in a very different direction.

 

Asked by Linderman what makes him so unafraid in his current situation, Bundy replied:

 

“I don’t stand alone. I have all of the prayers from lots of people around the world, and I feel those prayers. And those prayers take the tremble out of my legs. And I can stand strong and straight. And you know the spirit from our heavenly Father, I seek that every morning on my knees. And he gives me some guidance, and I go forth and I actually feel good. My health is good, my spirit is good and I feel strength. I do, I feel strength, I feel even happiness. And I have no idea where I’m going with this. It’s a day-by-day spiritual thing for me.”

Toward the end of the interview, Linderman asked, “One more question: Is there anything you’d like to say to the American people? Because I truly believe you’re a patriot.”

“You know,” replied Bundy, “I woke up, I got out of my house, went down to my trail and watched the sun come up over the hills and the mountains here. And, of course, I thought of Jesus. And then the thought that I thought was that we the people of America, not only of America but of the whole world, what Jesus would want us to do, was forgive. Forgive our enemies, and He’ll take care of all the rest. So my message to the world today is: Forgive your neighbors, forgive your wives, forgive your husbands and children, and feel the love of Jesus. That’s what He suffered for.

 

“I thank the people for their prayers and, again, I put my faith in my heavenly father and … we’re OK.”

 

Bundy’s wife, Carol, expressed the same faith to this writer when booking the radio interview: “This is the Lord’s battle,” she said. “He is calling the shots, and we are just standing here.”

 

Listen to Dianne Linderman’s entire 18-minute Easter interview with Cliven Bundy:

Violations of the Constitution


Harry Reid the Snake

I have had only limited knowledge of the justification used by the BLM in trying to use armed force and property seizure against Cliven Bundy and family. Even Fox News though sympathetic with the Bundy family, gave legal opinions from their contributors – Liberal and Conservative alike – that the BLM had an authentic judicial case against the Bundys.

 

After you read Justin Smith’s report below you will realize the actions of the BLM smack of YET ANOTHER SCANDAL to be assigned to the Obama Administration AND because of the Dem Party Senate Majority Leader – who represents Nevada – a Democratic Party scandal as well!

 

This smacks of money and abuse of power kick-backs to Harry Reid’s son Rory Reid; Chinese land grabbing for a renewable energy plant for a fraction of the land’s worth; connections to convicted lobbyist Harvey Whittemore, the hypocrisy of claiming protection for a tortoise that isn’t even endangered any longer yet willing to look the other way for Rory and Justin throws in the sovereignty grabbing of U.N. Agenda 21.

 

Read and be outraged by the truth of BLM vs. Cliven Bundy!

Violations of the Constitution

(A Land Management Nightmare)

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 4/18/2014 11:54 PM

 

Cliven Bundy’s twenty year battle over grazing rights became tense and volatile on April 10, 2014, when supporters protested and confronted Bureau of Land Management officers, who had illegally confiscated Bundy cattle, private property, calling them “trespass” cattle. A 1998 court order required Bundy to remove the livestock and pay damages for trespassing; since then, the BLM has exceeded its authority in its attempts to enforce BLM regulations. It is also now evident that Bundy did, in fact, have preemptive rights, which superseded federal claims to the land. And, while this confrontation was troubling and riveting, it is just a small part of a much greater federal assault on all private property rights across America.

 

An estimated 200 BLM armed officers deployed to the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada, and over the period of three days, they threw Bundy’s 57 year old sister, a cancer survivor, to the ground, tasered one son and arrested another for not protesting in a “designated free speech zone”. The BLM also actually had snipers targeting the protesters, but unknown to them at the time, they had been flanked and militia members from Montana, Texas and Utah had them in their scopes.

 

Several elected officials were deeply troubled by what they saw. Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, who could have de-escalated the matter by interceding, only remarked, “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.” But, Arizona Rep Kelly Townsend was so disturbed by the BLM’s actions that he drove to the Bundy ranch, and later he stated, “I don’t recognize my country at this point,”

 

Since the BLM retreated and ended their siege, Sen. Harry Reid has called the Bundy family “domestic terrorists”, and he has stated that action against the Bundy family would continue; however, as Texas Rep. Steve Stockman (R) explained in a letter to Obama, BLM Director Neil Kornze and Interior Secretary Sally Jewel, the BLM acted in a lawless manner, because it had no “right to assume preemptory police powers; and, it was required to seek assistance, if force was necessary, from local law enforcement”, under U.S. code – 43 U.S.C. Section 1733, Subsection C (April 17, Chris Agee, Western Journalism).

 

Regardless of the coercive manner the federal government acquired this land upon Nevada gaining statehood in 1864, there remains States’ rights and property rights issues, and, according to the BLM’s own regulations concerning improvements and land patents, under sections 49.3.3 – public lands division and 49.3.4 – private lands division, Mr. Cliven Bundy did hold preemptive rights to this land in question. Land patents are the first conveyance of title of ownership to land, which the U.S. grants a citizen who applies for one. As an assignee to his grandfather’s land patents from 1877, Bundy’s grazing rights fell under these rules, as well as the Homestead Act, which states that this land “cannot be held liable in order to satisfy any debt”, which includes the $300,000 in grazing fees Bundy admits owing to the State of Nevada and Clark County; this is the reason the BLM went after the “trespass” cattle, although their court order did not authorize the seizure and sale of these cattle.

 

While it is true that initially much of the problem started in the 1990s and after the Environmental Protection Agency declared 600,000 acres “protected federal land”, due to the “endangered desert tortoise”, this tortoise is no longer on the endangered list. So, why is the land still considered “protected”?

 

The answer is found in over 50 renewable energy projects slated for this land, many of which have been lobbied before Congress by Rory Reid, Senator Harry Reid’s son. The tortoises’ “endangered” status was ignored when Harry Reid pressured the BLM to allow one of his top donors, Harvey Whittemore – convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Reid in 2013, to develop some of the land. The tortoises’ manufactured plight was again ignored, when the communist Chinese ENN Energy Group wanted to buy 9,000 acres in the area for a solar energy farm, at a reduced price of $4.5 million, down from its appraised value of approximately $36 million, according to Reuters.

 

Neil Kornze, appointed by Senator Harry Reid to head the BLM, and, Sen. Reid’s son, Rory Reid have both had their hands in numerous renewable energy projects that considered Bundy’s land and surrounding areas. As of March 21, Kornze was assisting Jonathan Magaziner, an associate of the Clinton Foundation, in his Moapa Southern Paiute Project; and, they have both been instrumental in helping First Solar and CEO Michael Ahearn, former fundraiser for both Reid and Obama, get his project in the area for investors Al Gore, Ted Turner and Goldman Sachs and billionaire Obama fundraiser, Paul Jones, as reported by James Simpson at WND.

 

Also in March, the EPA and the Corps of Engineers have colluded to redefine “navigable waters” and impose a new rule, Waters of the United States that would give them authority over streams on private property, even when the water beds have been dry for hundreds of years, in conjunction with the Clean Water Act. And, as pointed out by Rep Harold Rogers (KY-R), this is “the biggest land grab in the history of the world”, and the economic impact will be profound, essentially freezing economic activity in America.

 

This sort of regulation allows the EPA to join the BLM, the Dept. of Energy and the Army in dictating to the American people, on a massive scale, everything from grazing rights, food production, animal units per month per acre/animal health and the use of energy on private lands. The true goal here is the enrichment of Progressive Democrats at the taxpayers’ expense, as they place every last foot of private land under government control, essentially destroying private property rights.

 

This is a “land management” nightmare straight from the marxofascist ideology of the Progressives, which implements the “sustainable development” of UN Agenda 21 through the illegal and unConstitutional Obama Executive Order 13575 that circumvented Congressional votes rejecting this direction for America. [Blog Editor: I took the liberty to add the bold highlight print]The federal government has never had unlimited authority over the land, and to the contrary, the Constitution made a point of limiting the federal government in this respect in the last two paragraphs of Article I – Section 8, and yet, the Federal Leviathan has taken this authority through our own complacency and acquiescence, and, in many cases, ignorance: This month the Bundy Family and hundreds of American Patriots refused to have their Liberty and Freedom taken away, and they stood against Tyranny, for themselves and all America.

Dems – Beware that the Nuclear Option Swings Both Ways


Nuclear Option - Jackass Hypocrisy

John R. Houk

© January 10, 2013

 

Does anyone remember when both Houses of Congress had a GOP majority? Further does anyone remember that the GOP in Senate was so upset with Dem filibustering preventing GOP nominations from making it to a floor vote that the Senate Majority Leader considered the so-called ‘Nuclear Option’ to break the Dem filibuster? AND does anyone recall how the Dems and Leftist pundits went ballistic after the ‘Nuclear Option’ was considered to get something done with an uncooperative Dem minority?

 

The hypocrisy of the Democrats is coming full circle with them contemplating using the Nuclear Option to get their way over the Republicans when it comes to controversial Leftist nominations and Leftist legislation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is attempting to change Senate Rules procedurally to render super majority cloture rules ineffective during a filibuster.

 

In this Congressional Session ending the filibuster via the Nuclear Option only would be effective for the Dems in cases of nomination confirmations. The GOP is still the majority in the House of Representatives. As far as legislation is concerned the Dem Senate can go nuclear all they want because the House can block Senate Dem legislation. BUT when it comes to confirming nominees for those Offices the Senate must approve the Nuclear Option would give President Barack Hussein Obama and the Senate Dems absolute power in shoveling through Obama’s radical Leftist nominations.

 

IF HARRY REID FOLLOWS THROUGH with Nuclear Option procedural changes all I have to say is “What goes around comes around”. A time will come around again when the Republican Party (or hopefully a fully endowed Conservative oriented Political Party) will attain at least a slim majority again in the Senate. Let the Dems cry all they want when that day arrives.

 

Senator Rand Paul is circulating a petition pertaining to Harry Reid’s consideration of the Nuclear Option. SIGN IT!

Harry Reid is Going Nuclear

The new Congress convenes on January 22.

And rumors are circulating on Capitol Hill that Harry Reid is scheming to shut up and silence all opposition by using the “nuclear option” to destroy the Senate filibuster.

Should Senator Reid succeed, he’ll be able to RAM Barack Obama’s entire radical agenda into law.

And according to inside counts – he’s only a few votes shy of pulling off this massive power grab.

You and I MUST stop him.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

You see, current Senate rules require 67 votes – a two-thirds majority – to shut down debate and change the rules.

And it was designed this way for a reason.

The Senate was intended to be a place where legislation was slowed down.

It was supposed to be the place where amendments were offered, debate was encouraged, and all participated in a process that led to better laws.

But like a bully on the playground, Senator Reid doesn’t give a flip about the rules.

And he believes he has the authority to flat-out ignore the Senate’s parliamentary procedures, long-standing traditions and specific rules in his mad rush for more power.

In short, Senator Reid wants the Majority Party to have the unchecked ability to pass legislation with virtually little to no opposition.

Massive tax hikes. Out-of-control spending. Gun control. Big Labor power grabs. More attacks on our God-given liberties.

We’re talking Harry Reid and Barack Obama having the power to pass anything they can dream up.

Just the thought of it sends shivers down my spine.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

Of course, Harry Reid isn’t stupid – he knows exactly what he’s doing. He knows he’s breaking Senate rules if he uses the “nuclear option.”

In fact, back in 2005 Senator Reid correctly argued, “For people to suggest that you can break the rules to change the rules is Un-American.”

The truth is, Senator Reid just doesn’t care.

And he’s willing to destroy the unique characteristics of the Senate simply to get his way.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

And if at all possible, along with your signed Fax Bomb, I hope you’ll agree to make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford.

Your generous contribution will help RAND PAC flood the offices of vulnerable, fence-riding U.S. Senators with faxes DEMANDING they vote against Harry Reid’s attempt to use the “nuclear option” to seize total power.

John, I know times are tough, but this is one fight you and I can’t afford to lose.

There’s just too much at stake.

It’s critical you and I defeat Harry Reid’s attempt to seize total control of the U.S. Senate.

So please, sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb, and agree to make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford – IMMEDIATELY.

Time is running out to mobilize millions of Americans to this fight.

So please don’t delay. Act NOW!

In Liberty,

 

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. When the new Congress convenes on January 22 – Harry Reid is expected to use the “nuclear option” to seize total control of the U.S. Senate.

Should he succeed, he’ll be able to RAM Barack Obama’s entire radical agenda into law – with little to no opposition.

So please, sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb, and agree to make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford – IMMEDIATELY.

Harry Reid Helps Chinese Solar Firm Represented By His Son

 

By Fox Nation

August 06, 2012

 

Las Vegas Review-Journal reported:

 

Now Reid is pushing for a Chinese company he played a key role in recruiting to Nevada, ENN Mojave Energy LLC. The company plans a billion-dollar solar energy manufacturing and generating plant near Laughlin, but an ambitious development schedule is being threatened by a lack of green power customers.

 

Steve Tetreault quoted Reid in Tuesday’s Review-Journal saying the project “would start tomorrow if NV Energy would purchase the power,” but the company “has not been willing to work on this and that’s such a shame.”

 

Reid added: “NV Energy is a regulated monopoly. They control 95 percent of all the electricity that is produced in Nevada and they should go along with this.”

 

They’re not, at least not yet.

 

And there are some legitimate reasons: Power costs are passed directly to consumers, and green energy currently costs more than power generated by coal-fired or natural-gas burning plants. State law mandates NV Energy buy power as cheaply as possible, except when it’s required to buy more-expensive green energy to meet state-mandated quotas. But the more green energy you buy, the higher bills climb.

 

NV Energy has already met its quota, and the PUC has already turned the company down when it proposed contracts that would have exceeded quotas. And when the company does buy power – which it plans to do next in 2014 – it does so by analyzing competitive bids.

 

Reid says those weak excuses. He said in that April interview that if “NV Energy wanted to do more with renewable energy, they could.”

 

There’s another factor, however, one more personal to Reid: His son, Rory Reid, is one of the attorneys for the ENN Mojave Energy project. A Reid spokeswoman said the senator did not suggest Reid’s firm – Lionel, Sawyer & Collins – to ENN, nor has the elder Reid spoken to this son about the deal.

Harry Reid And Son Called Crooks By Their Own Hometown Paper

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

August 6, 2012

Western Center for Journalism

 

Dingy Harry Reid has a problem. His hometown paper, the Las Vegas Review-Journal (LVRJ) is calling him out for his latest criminal caper. Reid has been trying to help his son Emaciated Rory steal from us and his scheme has been exposed by the LVRJ. Rory is a slimy lawyer who is trying to use Harry’s influence to strong-arm the state of Nevada, its main electric power supplier and the federal government to line their pockets with phony “green job” money.

 

The Reid family business is political corruption. Like any patriarch Harry Reid is trying to use his family business to help one of his sons.

 

In 2010 when the SEIU was stealing an election to keep Dingy Harry in office, Rory who was “running” for Governor of Nevada was so hopeless (he lost by 12 points) not even the Democrat’s voter fraud specialists could help him. So what could Harry Reid do?

 

Rory who is so emaciated looking he could pass as Harry’s father, needed a way to steal the “real money” Democrat Party corruption can give him. Harry is using the power of his office as the Senate Majority Leader to harass and maybe even destroy Nevada Energy (NV Energy) the main supplier of power for the state to help a Chinese “green energy” client of Rory’s law firm.

 

Rory is a spokesman for the company which is trying to gain a foothold in Nevada. That “green energy” is a total fake and nothing more than a way to steal from the federal treasury means nothing to either man.

 

Because they are treacherous Democrats neither Dingy Harry nor Emaciated Rory Reid feel the slightest hesitation to help a Communist country destroy an American company, even one in their own home state.

 

Hiding behind phony excuses that NV Energy “could do more with renewable energy…” Reid blows off critics and insults us by insisting he and his emaciated son have never spoken about this issue. The LVRJ says Harry Reid deserves an ethics complaint for his persistent efforts to damage NV Energy, and who could argue otherwise? He is clearly acting in the best interest of his son and himself not the people who “elected” him.

 

While the disinfectant that is sunlight will keep this scheme from working – partly because Reid has raised the issue of his own ethics by attacking Mitt Romney – when we finally rid ourselves of Reid’s control of our Senate we must remember this and take whatever action is available to us. We must deliver justice to Harry Reid.
