Crazy Cliven Bundy Armed Supporters Supposedly Setting Up Checkpoints on Nevada Highways

bundy-supportersAnd many conservatives threw a fit because I called the tea party a terrorist group.  These people continue to get more and more ridiculous every single day.

The most recent story coming from Nevada involves armed Cliven Bundy supporters (I refuse to call these jackasses a “militia”) setting up checkpoints along Nevada highways near Bunkerville, requiring people passing to prove that they live in the area before being allowed through.

So the federal government is big bad and evil, always looking to infringe upon your rights, yet these idiots are supposedly stopping people (illegally by the way), forcing them to prove they live in the area before allowing them to pass?

And that’s not a massive infringement upon their Constitutional rights?  These people are unhinged.

Nevada lawmaker Steven Horsford (a Democrat) wrote:

“We must respect individual constitutional liberties, but residents of and visitors to Clark County should not be expected to live under the persistent watch of an armed militia.  Residents have expressed their desire to see these groups leave their community. I urge you to investigate these reports and to work with local leaders to ensure that their concerns are addressed in a manner that allows the community to move forward without incident.”

Cliven Bundy has broken the law – period!

Four different court orders have ruled against him.  The “debate” over this whole issue is over, he lost.  It’s as if these people are daring the federal government to use some kind of force against them.  As if they’re hoping that by doing so they can trigger some kind of “second revolution.”  They’re absolutely insane.

Besides the recent revelation that Bundy’s a racist, he’s broken the law.  The fact that these people continue to try to claim that he hasn’t simply because he “doesn’t recognize the federal government as even existing” doesn’t matter at all.

Bundy is a rancher that’s trying to subsidize his profits, and the feed of his cattle, on government land.  That’s the truth of this whole story.  He’s trying to argue that his cattle have the right to graze on land he doesn’t own. 

But the fact that these clowns are still hanging around the area, supposedly setting up checkpoints while trying to intimidate people along the highways, just adds to the mounting evidence that these people are completely insane.

    When did we turn over the security of this country to independant militias with no accountability to anyone but themselves? In Afghanistan they are called WarLords.

    When self appointed militias are setting up checkpoints on roads and in communities, then we have already lost. Where the hell is the elected government that is supposed to protect all the citizens, not just the ones with guns? Are we going back to civil war?

    • Sunny Ray

      “When did we turn over the security of this country to independant militias with no accountability to anyone but themselves?” When the second amendment was wrote.

      • auntielib

        Sunny, I don’t think the Progs believe in the Constitution.

      • Sunny Ray

        I was being sarcastic sir. Reps believe in the constitution… only when they can take advantage of it.

      • auntielib

        I make no apologies for taking advantage of my First and Second Amendment rights, sir, that is correct.

      • Sunny Ray

        Sure, but it is wrong to ignore it when it is in conflict with “your” ideas.

      • auntielib

        But since I’m not doing that, what’s your point?

      • Sunny Ray

        You are not the center of the world man, I wasn’t talking about you specifically, you identified yourself in my words on my first comment. I used quotation marks specially for you to not think I’m pointing at you.

        I’ll leave you with Mark Twain: “never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”

        But you want the last word I know, like all extremists, if what you’ll write make sense or not doesn’t matter, you just want the last word, so go for it, I give it to you.

      • auntielib

        Thanks, Sunny!

        I was under the impression that this was an open forum, and that Progressives weren’t frightened by the concept of back-and-forth discussion of the various issues of the day.

        Sure, most of the Progressives one encounters here ultimately fall back on the tired tactics of the Democrat Party – name calling and personal attack – just as Allen Clifton regularly does, but some of us keep hoping that one day some semi-intelligent Progressive will show up here and not sink to calling people “stupid” or “extremists” or whatever.

      • Sunny Ray

        Ho no, I’m not afraid of discussion, whenever it is not sterile, in your case it is. And seeing the person you identify yourself with as your avatar, I can say with conviction that YOU are stupid, ignorant, extremist and I’ll add arrogant, and content with that.
        Ok I used my last minute to waste of the day. Have a good one!

      • Jim Bean

        I thought you were ‘giving you (auntielib) the last word? Then you responded again to what he said. That’s not how its supposed to work.

      • Sunny Ray

        Very productive, feel smarter now?

      • Adam Smith

        You’re not discussing anything. You’re ranting. When you get proven wrong, you don’t admit it. You simply keep on ranting or deflect to another subject.

        Normally I don’t waste my time on obvious trolls like you, but sometimes I find amusement in pointing out their stupidity.

        Your failed attempt yesterday to correct Shirley’s spelling because you didn’t know that “add” and “ad” are two different words was priceless.

      • Mikaele Baker

        I’m not frightened by discussion. Also in general Progressives resort to calling names long after the conservatives do. Take a look at history, every progressive movement (suffrage, civil rights, workers’ rights) of the past has encountered the same kind of reactionary resistance based on tired old ideas.

        Please reply, I’d like to have a discussion, but up until this point you’ve given no real abstract to your argument. You just personally attacked and generalized about Progressives, while name dropping the first and second amendment.

      • mavrick

        well we have our first target for a drone strike …please leave your address .. the Hellfire Missile will be there shortly to assist you ..

      • robingee

        LOL you again. No one cares, you make no sense and just want to argue by saying the same shit over and over.

      • Adam Smith

        Actually, progressives WROTE the Constitution.

        The conservatives of the time were mostly loyal to the Crown. That’s what conservatism is all about. Resistance to change and favoring the status quo.

      • wheldon rumproast

        Conservatives today want change, all right…change back to the 1900’s, when business owners ran roughshod over their workers, there were no protections, no healthcare provided, and very little middle class. Personally I’d prefer a Republican leader like Eisenhower, who presided over a large, well paid, thriving, middle class, but a man like Ike would be a liberal, by today’s standards. There’s no chance he could do what he did, with the GOP’s backing. The inmates have overtaken the asylum.

      • Lee

        Ahh, there he is! Like clockwork.

      • Michael

        Was written. Not “was wrote”. Thanks for your educated opinion.

      • Sunny Ray

        Sorry. English is my 4th language, I think misspelling can be forgiven when you speak and write more than one language, but if it’s the only thing that bothers you in my comment, you are pointless.

      • Scott Sims

        The 2nd Am does not give militias the power to invoke martial law.

      • Sunny Ray

        What I mean with my comment is since they have guns they believe they can do it actually.

      • Becca1967

        Not what it says…

    • auntielib

      What is your evidence that “self appointed militias” have set up “checkpoints”? Clifton’s rant above? His supposed link to the supposed “checkpoint” story doesn’t even work, so all you’ve got is the ravings of the Democrat lunatic Steven Horsford. Assuming Clifton even quoted HIM correctly, that is.

      • disqus_22iqFVV4qK

        Now, who’s name calling and making personal attacks. You are as low as the photo you use. To hide your racist views you take the perfect Avater. What Rube you are.

      • auntielib

        So you admit the ravings of the Democrat lunatic Steven Horsford is the only “evidence” you’ve got in support of your claims, Clifton?
        Yeah, I figured as much.

      • Marty Tatro

        How much proof of his being a ‘lunatic’ do you have? Where? Not saying he isn’t, just you keep saying he is… but no fact oriented information. Plus, you keep calling out this story as being the only proof…

      • Adam Smith

        I think Clifton banged his mom.

      • Mikaele Baker

        Well the information could be false. But it’s a believable story, we have a group of militia in open rebellion against the Federal Gov’t. If it wasn’t true, it doesn’t make these guys any less traitorous.

    • auntielib

      “Where the hell is the elected government that is supposed to protect all the citizens, not just the ones with guns?”
      —–
      Excellent question, bambam!

      As it turns out, the average response time of the police when called is on the order of 10 to 25 minutes. So keep that in mind as you are standing there, without a gun, and are being beaten to a pulp by 3 or 4 Americans from Africa. Sure, assuming your cellphone works OK, you’ll only have to endure the beating for maybe 25 minutes tops, and then the police (the only ones with the guns, assuming the Progs get their way) will arrive and bail you out.

      • MikeM

        Way to show your true racist self.

      • auntielib

        Rightttttt….like Americans from Africa NEVER play the Knockout “game”, eh Prog?
        LOL at you.

      • mavrick

        that game has been around a long time and usually its the young knocking out the old ..like a drone strike

      • auntielib

        No, usually it’s a colored person attacking a white person, mavrick.

      • Marty Tatro

        Proof of your supposition? Video? Arrest records? Complaints to the police or Law Enforcement?

      • Really

        What is a colored person? I have never seen a truly white person either.

      • Brian

        Statistically speaking, you are completely wrong.

      • Mikaele Baker

        Your fact is not rooted in reality, and even if it was, it doesn’t matter. Who cares of the criminals are colored? If they were white would your reaction to the fact that they’re beating you up change?

        Also it sounds like you describe a fist fight that didn’t go your way, as the “Americans from Africa” are not armed. Getting beaten up sucks but it’s not a reason to kill someone.

      • Amber

        American’s are from America, that’s why they are “Americans” stop think about, let it sink in. Realize when making racist comments you’re better off with the “colored person” from below.

      • breakingbabylon

        wow. you don’t know what the knock out game is you fucking racist. are you even from the united states? heres what me and my white friends usually do. the people who convey hate towards others like you do, we get together, find them (and hopefully you) and beat them within a bloody pulp of their lives. then we tie them up, blind fold them, and throw them on the side of the interstate naked, and hope they don’t ever make it off the side of the highway.

      • breakingbabylon

        and one day, that will be you. and you’ll say to yourself “oh why, why christian, caucasian god, i’ve done all you’ve asked, i’ve ignorantly hated the gays and every other race. i’ve made myself the center of the universe and have tired to spread as much hate as I possibly could, i drink every day and beat my wife until she left me, WHY GOD, WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME FOR BELIEVE IN YOU? I’M SUCH A KIND REASONABLE AND INTELLIGENT PERSON, WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO SUCH A SCHOLAR HUMAN BEING”
        that’ll be when you finally learn your leasson. unfortunately it will be shortly before the ending of your story, but on your deathbed, you’ll get the message. you can repent, but it will never take away your regret.

      • breakingbabylon

        OH MY GOD. i get it now “auntie lib” you’re a fat old nasty white lady who’s never worked an honest days living in her life (raising the brats who you call a sorry excuse for children isn’t a job dear, and you fucked that up anyways.) Your husband probably brings home the money so you could sit your fat nasty ass on the computer all day and post 23,611 comments on just this single website. I have to ask you, do you have a life (i know the answer to that.) and while the rest of us are off WORKING our JOBS and busting OUR ASSES. the porpoise you call yourself is sitting on a computer, antagonizing people who actually work for a living. when you don’t know the definition of the word.

        Auntie, you embarrassed yourself yesterday when you showed that you didn’t know that “add” and “ad” are two different words.

        Go back to Fox before you get embarrassed again.

      • ebontail

        The fact you had to throw “from africa” in there proves your racism, like the key and white supremecists are know for being non violent. Also it’s nice to see basically admit you need guns because you are a puss afraid to get his assistant kicked. Perhaps if you weren’t such a bigot you wouldn’t need to fear this? Also liberals don’t want to take away anyones guns they simply want common sense laws sure as universal background checks, reasonable magazine sizes and a ban on FURTHER sales of assault rifles. But go ahead keep wallowing get in your ignorance and spreading the Fox News lies to further the NRA’S agenda and sell more guns.

        I hope you second amendment yourself loser.

      • Brian

        How did you get yourself in such a situation? Why did you simply not hand over your wallet and walk away? If you don’t do everything you can to prevent yourself from being attacked, then you’re a fool. If you rely on a gun to protect you, then you’re a fool with intent to murder.

    Dont these clowns have jobs? Or are they more gubiment moochers like that assclown Bundy?? We should have let these asshats secede

    • auntielib

      Maybe if you Progs/Demmies who post here use the words “clowns” and “assclowns” and “asshats” enough, you’ll be able to reverse the findings of the latest WaPo polling data?
      Ya think?

      • breakingbabylon

        are you so grumpy because you haven’t been able to see your vagina for 23 years, or are you grumpy because you’re too fat and lazy to loose some weight. oh but it’s all those blacks from africas fault you ate so much and became the whale you are today.

      • real_world_truth

        Not to defend auntielib, but could you please refrain from bashing overweight people in your comments? My weight is greater than it should be due to health issues, not laziness or overeating. Weight-ism can be just as devastating as racism, ageism and every other form of discrimination. Let’s try not judging people by externals, name calling should be beneath any intelligent person.

        That said and given the fact I’m not sure why anyone would want to see a vagina attached to as unpleasant a person as auntielib seems to be, please proceed apace. Although I doubt your arguments will make a dent in auntielib’s point of view.

      • Altreg01

        Not sure what WaPo is, probably short for Washington Post which is obviously too hard for you to spell. I will now refer to these assclowns and asshats by their correct name, domestic terrorists, dont want to confuse them with the regular assclowns known as the teabagger party. Im not sure what a poll in a right wing rag has to do with gubiment moochers terrorizing the locals in Nevada, please enlighten me. How cute your profile pic is the teabagger racist and child molester patriarch of the Duck idiot family. Really great people they are.

      How does that make sense? Elaborate.

      I apologize on behalf of my fellow “Progs” for their personal attacks. I want to have an actual discussion with you.

  • Marty Tatro

    I can say, quite truthfully, that if someone like this stopped me on the highway, well, they wouldn’t. I would move right on through. Fire on me, I dare you!

    • auntielib

      Yeah, tough guy, I bet you tell that to all the police who try to stop you, huh?

      Oh, you Progs are soooooooo gosh-darned manly!!

      • Marty Tatro

        Actually, I am not a progressive. And no, I don’t mistreat law enforcement officers, or government officials for that fact.

      • Marty Tatro

        However, domestic terrorists would find me very brave indeed.

      • auntielib

        “However, domestic terrorists would find me very brave indeed.”
        —-
        OK, no disagreement with you in that regard, sir.

        However, since there is no evidence whatsoever that the Americans (yes, with guns) who rode into town (to help protect Mr. Bundy from the armed BLM agents) are in any way “domestic terrorists”, I’m not sure what your point is.

      • Marty Tatro

        Huh! It would seem “they” vetted my last response out for some reason.

      • Marty Tatro

        If you search on ‘definition domestic terrorism’, then go to the FBI page that comes up, you will see what I meant with my statement.

      • Marty Tatro

        Ahhhh, the site managers are in ‘approval’ mode. I guess my previous posting was not acceptable because I quoted Federal Law.

      • Sunny Ray

        I guess you used a link in your post. Links don’t work, it’s automatic.

      • Marty Tatro

        I figured that was the case.

      • You can get around this by adding a DOT com to your copy paste. That way it won’t actually register as a link but as text.

      • Marty Tatro

        Thanks.

      • Marty Tatro

        No response Auntie? To my previous posts?

      • auntielib

        What are you talking about, Marty??

      • Marty Tatro

        I found out that I can not use direct links, so read below for some nice information provided by the FBI folks concerning the definition of domestic terrorism. It is enlightening to see.

      • Divuthen

        So we’re going to ignore the part where they bragged in a radio interview that they put woman and children in front if then so they would be shot first, and it would make a bigger impact? I believe in the second amendment, but that sir is just plain terrorism and cowardice. And honestly it’s because if nut bags like these that I carry a concealed weapon, not because I’m afraid of any “Americans from Africa” I’ve been attacked by homeless and drug addicted four times in the last three years and they were all white.

      • Marty Tatro

        The video of the confrontation at the overpass also shows these ‘militia’ buddies of Bundy with weapons aimed at Federal officers/agents. Last I knew, that was a Federal offense in and of itself. But they are roaming free…

      • auntielib

        Is it also a “Federal offense” for BLM agents to aim guns at private citizens, Prog?

      • Marty Tatro

        What weapons? Firearms? Or tasers? And, again, I am not a progressive.
        Show me where they are proven to have even pulled their firearms prior to being confronted by an angry ARMED mob, and we can discuss it. Oh, and SWAT teams or the like don’t count. They are mandated to operate under different protocols.

      • auntielib

        Firearms AND tasers, that is correct.

      • Marty Tatro

        Show me…

      • Mikaele Baker

      • auntielib

        What is your evidence they “stopped people on the Hwy”??

      • Marty Tatro

        Bundy has over 20 years of breaking the law, feeding his cows off of property that is protected without paying for it, over $1 million in fines and fees to pay, and four court orders requiring him to pay those fees. But you are protecting him, and the terrorists, with your words? Why?

      • Mikaele Baker

        Terrorism is defined by Google as the use of violence or intimidation for political or economic means, which is exactly what the traitors are doing.

        Bundy stole from this country, he refused taxes and denounced his fellow Americans. He pointed guns at them and threatened to shoot them because he doesn’t want to pull his societal rate.

      • BB

        I agree 100%, Marty. I respect ALL law enforcement, but self proclaimed bad-asses, not at all…I say bring it…try & stop me or fire upon me and you will see the wrath of hell unleashed on your self righteous ass!! This is just another Waco waiting to happen…freaks!!

    • Shari D

      Actually, it does work. I just used that link to go right to the Fox5LasVegas news report and read it all. And the quote you continue to question as accurate or not, is indeed accurate. Maybe do a little further checking on it yourself, since you seem to have ample time on the Internet to use posting your opinions here. I’m busy, and have other things to do now.

      • Marty Tatro

        I too was directed straight to the story. Huh? Wonder why…

    • auntielib

      Oh dear. According to the latest Washington Post polling data, those meanie “racists” and “ignorants” and “stupids” are whupping you brainiac Progs when it comes to the various issues of the day:

      “Last month, a Post-ABC poll found 49 percent of Americans saying they supported the new law [the Obamacare tax] compared with 48 percent who opposed it. That finding was more positive for the administration than most other polls at the time. Democrats saw it as a possible leading indicator of a shift in public opinion, but that has not materialized.

      A 58 percent majority say the new law [the Obamacare tax that the Democrats wrote] is causing higher costs overall, and 47 percent say it will make the health-care system worse. While a majority say the quality of the health care they receive will remain the same, a plurality expect it to result in higher personal costs for that care.”

      Oh dear, what’s a poor beleaguered Prog to do??

      • chronoduck

        Wow, auntielib must not have anything else better to do with their time except post “eh,Prog”.

        Must be leeching off the system, eh Con?

      • auntielib

        So if a person posts here, in your powerful Prog mind that means they “must not have anything else better to do with their time”, Chrono?

        Does that Demmie/Prog theory of yours apply to you also?

      • chronoduck

        No, I’m not criticizing anyone for posting here.

        It just appears that you post quite a lot, way too much for anyone who isn’t screaming for attention.

        Question: Do you have a job, or do you just post all of this stuff from work?

        It’s okay though. Narcissism is the norm in a “me” society. I’m sure you agree.

        Well those statistics seem to correspond with party lines, and of course Republicans would believe the law isn’t working. But it is. My republican grandparents literally got their insurance from Obamacare (they still don’t support the law because like most republicans they are ignorant of it’s true effects).

        Your statistic amounts to “about half of all Americans are conservative” it doesn’t actually show if the law if effective or not (hint: it is).

  • You hit the nail on the head. I live not far from Bunkerville, in Mesquite, and it’s horrid. These nutjobs regularly come into the local grocery stores, carrying all their guns, and look at you like “what you gonna do about it” if you glance their direction. These people are truly delusional. Bundy and his goons are truly a black eye on the face of Mesquite…

      Proof? Why would he attack himself in his own site? Sounds more like you are just trying to discredit him. You are prolly auntielib posting as a guest.

      • honda97

        You haven’t gotten the last word in on him either. He’s posted over 27,000 comments so he’s getting paid by someone.

    • auntielib

      Good point.

  • Sandy Greer

    Spit tacks, Cliven Bundy! Your personal representative is black – just like your president. LMFAO

    Bad enough he ran cattle on lands not his, that he didn’t want to pay for – while ranting about Welfare Queens on Food Stamps and getting a ‘hate’ on for any/everybody not ‘just like him’. Self-righteous hypocrite with an entitlement complex, anyone?

    Now he wants to control our roads, too. Good Lord. Is there anything more volatile than dangerous men, itching for a fight?

  • ebontail

    It’s funny how pussy ass conservatives like auntie claim to be patriots and love America and the constitution until something they dont like comes along and then the govt is evil and needs to be put in its place. Do you idiots realize that it’s all one in the same? You don’t get to cherry pick what you like and what you dont. If you don’t respect the govt when it comes to the court rulings and fines levied against Cliven the codger how can you expect your 2nd amendment to be protected?

  • CiCi Galad

    I can see why poor auntielib is so paranoid of being hurt and clings to his ‘my gun will protect me’ mentality. If he’s half as annoying and nonsensical irl as on these posts, small wonder almost everyone he encounters would want to, at the very least, slap the shit out of him. Willing to bet he’s learned not to run his mouth so much.

    “SUPPOSEDLY”

  • Clay Caldwell

    Dr. King “broke the law”. The law doesn’t come down from God. It comes down from people protecting their power.

    • Curtis Scarbrough

      A few differences. When Dr. King broke the law, he did it for others, not for himself. When Dr. King broke the law, it was because he wanted to make the country a better place, not because he wanted to protect his personal profits. And when Dr. King broke the law, he got arrested. 30 times or so, as opposed to Bundy who broke the law and so far has gotten away with it. There’s a big difference between civil disobedience (What king did) and domestic terrorism (what Bundy is doing)

      • Lyle Joseph Newiger

        “Domestic terrorism” has become a very popular saying these days for anyone who doesn’t like people who aren’t fully supportive of the Federal government, civil disobedience and “domestic terrorism” aren’t all that different…of course, you’d only label something as “domestic terrorism” if you disagree with it. I guess you think the Feds should be allowed to take private property whenever they so willingly please, huh? So an American citizen getting standoffish with the authorities is “domestic terrorism” in your eyes…may I ask you, what would you call a government leader using the police to force people to give up their rights at gun point then? Or the Boston Bomber? How about the Muslim Fort Hood shooter waging his little Jihad? Civil disobedience?
        Bear in mind that the revolutionaries who rebelled against British tyrants in the late 1700’s were also considered “domestic terrorists”. Same thing for German citizens that tried to assassinate Hitler.
        Also to note, the Feds also shot up a bunch of Bundy’s cattle that happened to wander outside his property. Ain’t that nice and civil of them to shoot harmless animals rather than try to heard them some place safe? I guess the liberal media forgot to cover that, huh?

  • Mtnman

    In all the comments I’ve notice there is only one commenter backing the so called Bundy supporters. That alone should tell you most Americans are law abiding and honest with decent values . Remember all of the Bundy supporters are not even from the Bunkerville area or Nevada , he has not local support.

  • breakingbabylon

    notice how auntie libs old fat nasty ass has 0 followers. she’s never read a book, and hasn’t seen her own vagina since reagan was elected. I’m surprised she knows what the internet even is.

    • breakingbabylon

      give me a few hours everyone, I’ll have her home address posed up on this website, with her actual name and phone number so we can send her all of the great mail and packages we could ever want.

      • Marty Tatro

        That’s just wrong, but I am laughing my ass off right now…

  • FD Brian

    Stand your ground laws could really work against these people.

  • Grumpmaster_Zz

    This situation could be right out of eastern Ukraine: “Acting on orders from Putin, armed pro-Russia separatists from Idaho and Nevada are setting up checkpoints in and around Clark County, NV. They have sent messages to the Kremlin asking for Russian military protection.

    At the checkpoints, they are extorting money from travelers, demanding identification papers, and proof of Evangelical Church membership and homeschooling. It is rumored that Blacks, Jews, Catholics, college degree holders, and Evolutionists have been dragged from their cars and summarily executed.

    Russian President Putin and one-time Alaska governor Sarah “Bat Sh*t Crazy” Palin issued a joined communique praising the brave stand of the Nevada separatists against the tyranny of Truth, Justice, the American way, the Constitution, and International Law”

    (At the moment this is satire, but given the stupidity of the RWNJ terrorists, this could become reality all to easily)

  • Edward Krebbs

    I applauded the decision to temporarily withdraw and avoid a Waco/RubyRidge standoff and then pick up the cast of characters one by one. But now the Wild West gang are blocking highways and threatening citizens from going about their daily lives. Time to act.

    If Bundy is about feedom and liberty, how come he is taking away the liberties of others ?

    • Marty Tatro

      How truer can a statement be? There is no argument, legal that is, that gives him or his supporters that right.

    • auntielib

      What is your evidence that anyone is “blocking highways”??
      Oh, wait, I forgot – this is a Prog discussion forum, so you don’t have any data to support your claims. My bad….

      • Mikaele Baker

        Well I admit that there have not been other sources to confirm this lead, you may have noticed that journalism sometimes involves reporting on leads until more information is available (this can be done irresponsibly I acknowledge).

        Even if they aren’t blocking highways, would that change the fact that people are in open rebellion against the United States of America?

      • strayaway

        Open rebellion? That’s what King George accused Americans of after the Battle of Bunker Hill (“”open and avowed rebellion.”) I agree with your caution regarding the lack of confirmation of this claim by an Obama loyalist but where and when have bullets flown to meet the standard of “open rebellion” cited by King George?

  • Michael Pulskamp

    I smell somthing… It’s that same smell I get when I walk into a business that has Faux Nuz on. It smells like the stuff that comes out of the backside of a bull. “Supposedly” screw that! You should be ashamed to “report” this shit.

  • Sifu

    Nevada is a crazy place. Legal gambling, legal prostitution and now Warlords! It’s a cross between late Ching Dynasty China and Thunder-dome.

    • Pipercat

      Too funny…

    • Curtis Scarbrough

      It’s like Fallout New Vegas, in other words.

  • Edward Krebbs

    So they’re celebrating individual freedom by denying others the freedom to freely move about and do their daily chores ?

    I applauded the pullback of the BLM – thinking in terms of avoiding a siege/Waco-like situation. Better to pull back and then collect the responsible people one at a time. But if the RWNJ are threatening the citizens, don’t see where the State and Feds have much choice. As I suspect some of these folks may be conspiracy theorists, they may get the DHS/black helicopters of their dreams.

  • rossbro

    Jail his ass. Take the cows and his land. Auction them to pay PAST-DUE grazing fees. Period.

  • bailey78

    Makes me want to drive that way just to piss these nuts off so they will do something stupid.

    • Marty Tatro

      I was thinking exactly the same!

  • Curtis Scarbrough

    So if this is true, and while it wouldn’t surprise me if it was, I’m not fully believing it without further evidence, what do they do when someone says screw your checkpoints, I have every right to drive down this road. Are these ‘patriots’ going to start shooting innocent civilians if they don’t obey the self appointed status of these terrorists?

    • Mikaele Baker

      I do not want anyone innocent to get hurt, but in a twisted sort of way I hope so. I feel like the Gov’t is unwilling to outright attack the traitors without provocation, and Bundy has compounded this through his hiding behind women and children etc. so I’m hoping they’ll provoke us so that we can take care of them.

      • strayaway

        “I’m hoping they’ll provoke us so that we can take care of them.”

        Another progressive supporting a “final solution”.

      • Mikaele Baker

        I am not supporting a “final solution”. I do not want to impart genocide on conservatives. But these are terrorists, and conservatives are generally the ones who advocate for the indiscriminate torturing and killing of terrorists, evidently not so when they agree with them…

        That said, my comment wasn’t entirely rational. Domestic terrorists are not combatants, they are criminals, and deserve to be arrested and given a fair trial, that is, unless they are unable to be captured alive.

  • DonColorado

    Can we get some documentation of this story?

  • DERP!

    Don’t buy into either side of the spin the libs and cons are putting on this. The issue is clear and has been for years. Dems nor reps give a fuck about your rights.

  • artchick

    These actions do add to the mounting evidence that these people are completely insane, but the fact that they have not yet been arrested adds to the mounting evidence that the government is not doing ENOUGH. This should have been stopped at the get go……now we have lunatics out there stopping innocent people on the road. Get troops out there and remove those rodents!

  • Informit

    Where is the government?

  • Oh, thank goodness. Finally somebody is deleting Auntielib’s ass! Please keep it up!

  • renowalsh

    Let’s boycott Nevada Beef. That may get the community to step in and resolve the issue. I don’t like the idea of punishing other Nevada Ranchers. Is there a way to boycott Bundy’s beef?

  • Alan Chandler

    The media is sure covering Bundy. Don’t hear anymore about Harry Ried, his son and the chief of the BLM in cahoots with a Chinese solar farm.
