I Think It Was a Combination of Unexpectedly Bright Lights Shining on Their Nasty Little Business

…and getting awfully close to that 19th of April date which, for some reason, the Feds seem drawn to like a FLAME for coming down heavy, and leaving somebody…in flames.

More: From the Las Vegas CBS affiliate:

LAS VEGAS — The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years.

The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte.

The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said she was thrown to the ground by an officer.

With more Bundy supporters pouring in from around the country, safety concerns began to grow.

The I-Team has learned the deal to end the gather was brokered by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie.

Though, isn’t it ODD how eveything has to simmer down RIGHT QUICK when HARRY REID’S DIRTY DEALINGS get stirred into this righteous “deadbeat cowboy didn’t pay his fees and is torturing tortoises” mix?

Koch brothers, my ass.

Nice to have friends ride in to help. And MILLIONS of friends to pass the pictures ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

    Another example of law abiding citizens exercising their second amendment rights and preventing crime without firing a shot.

    Round one to the good guys. This next round will be much tougher.

  3. JeffS says:

    Exactly right, Guns. The Feds don’t like backing down; they lose face. And they don’t like losing face.

    And BLM’s concern about the “safety” of employees and the public? They should have thought about that BEFORE deploying snipers and attack dogs.

    “Safety” my achin’, dyin’, a$$.

    How ‘threatened’ or ‘endangered’ can a species with an ‘over breeding problem‘ be?

  5. Skyler says:

    How do we know they are the good guys? All I hear about is a man that lost in court, who has been using public lands and is violating laws.

    I don’t like those laws and I don’t give a damn about turtles, but we are a nation of laws and I don’t understand why this is being settled by threats of a range war.

    I think both parties are idiots because I don’t see either one as having a good case.

  6. Mr. Bingley says:

    Why are the Feds doing this when from my understanding the lands involved are state, not federal, and the governor does not seem to want them there?

  7. Syd B. says:

    I don’t know all the legal ins-and-outs of the case and the media have not (Surprise!) done a good job of presenting the case for both sides. I am struck by the arrogance and high-handedness of the Feds and like Mr. B., am puzzled as to why they are involved in the first place. We see a genuinely totalitarian atmosphere, an air of living and operating removed from everyday reality in the way our government now works. We have seen this before, generally under Democratic administrations, e.g., the Clinton-Reno handling of Waco, but not exclusively so, e.g., the 1992 Bush (41) handling of Ruby Ridge, but under this administration,that totalitarian impulse has gone on steroids, e.g., the use of the IRS and EPA to suppress dissent; the use of the ATF to build a bogus case against gun ownership with “Fast and Furious”; the ramming through of Obamacare, ready or not, wanted or not; the use of the auto bailout to close pro-Repubilican car dealers, etc. Did the Bundy case really rise to this level of Federal action? A dispute over a million dollars in land use fees? Really? What has this operation cost the taxpayers? More important, what has this operation cost the government in the one resource it no longer has in great stock, the public trust?

    Anytime 9/11 truther Alex Jones is the lead advocate for an issue, I assume it is a crackpot issue.

    Harry Reid has been using those poor turtles to make himself rich since 1998. Check back to the sleazy Coyote Springs Land swap. The turtles were used as an excuse to shift a major power line corridor and free up land for a swap that benefited lobbyist Harvey Whitmore among others
