Thoughts on the [Entire] Standoff at the Cliven Bundy Ranch and the Wolves on Both Sides

Well, here comes the justification for an FBI/ATF/SWAT-driven raid; http://www.reviewjournal.com/politics/reid-calls-bundy-supporters-domestic-terrorists.

During an interview Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Thursday,

“Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists. There were hundreds — hundreds of people from around the country — that came there. They had sniper rifles on the freeway. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons.”

When Reid colludes with Attorney General Eric Holder, a man who still refuses to own up to Fast and Furious, it’s almost assured the government won’t let Cliven Bundy continue on insisting sovereign citizen rights. On one side, if their smart they will wait and bide their time. But likely, because their not, it will be soon and ugly. Oppositely hopefully Bundy will at least get his family clear and start considering his options. While I doubt the militia’s can sustain him indefinitely, he’ll need to figure out how to either find a legal compromise or a permanent security solution.

Interestingly, Bundy gave his first response upon hearing of Reid’s comments labeling him and his family “terrorists” on Fox News,

“Well, I guess he’s right. I don’t know what else we’d be. We’re definitely citizens riled up. I don’t know whether you could call us terrorists. There are the most loving people here I’ve ever met in my life.” (Fox News Insider)

Musings of a North American Sheepdog

600w-Cliven-Bundy For some time now, the situation between Nevada rancher Cliven D. Bundy, 67, and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was rapidly deteriorating. Yet, with the BLM standing down, members of Bundy’s camp decry it as a victory for the 1st Amendment as guaranteed by the 2nd, state rights, and sovereign citizenship. Oppositely, Progressives decry the actions of Bundy as a criminal propped up by lawless gun-toting militias. But it’s difficult to tell where the truth is in all of this, and by now its obvious wolves on both sides are busy framing the scenario and how it all played out to their political base. It’s one reason I held making my assessment until I had time to review the situation, and apply rational critical thinking.

But first, a little history lesson (I know bear with me – it’s important)…

In 1848, as part of the close to the US-Mexico…
