HAPPY TRAILS: Cowboys on Horseback Move in to Reclaim Bundy Cattle Stolen By BLM

21st Century Wire

Following the surprise announcement by Clark County’s Sheriff Douglas Gillespie this morning of a deal brokered to end the BLM’s occupation of the Bundy Ranch and Gold Butte, rancher Cliven Bundy has moved to reclaim some of his cattle previously stolen by the BLM.

After the Sheriff’s statement on stage at Camp Bunkerville, Cliven Bundy then made a list of demands, calling for the US Federal government’s 200 armed BLM agents to wrap-up their operation, and that they should begin “disarming the park service rangers”, and remove their equipment and structures to be “torn down immediately – within the hour”.

THE LAST MAN STANDING: Vindicated and still strong – American rancher Cliven Bundy.

That hour came and went, and with the Clark County Sheriff no where to be seen, Cliven Bundy took the stage at Camp Bunkerville and announced that protesters and supporters should pick up their things and move their vehicles to nearby Interstate I15 where the men on horseback would orgainise the repatriation of cattle previously stolen by armed BLM agents this past week. Traffic leading to I15 quickly slowed to one lane, prompting Nevada Highway Patrol and Metro Police to be called out to the scene – but only to direct traffic.

An estimated 150 to 200 ‘Bundy Cowboys’ on horseback were then deployed from the ranch to shut down the freeway near the entrance to the BLM compound near the crossing at I15 where the Bundy herd is being held.

Cowboys are in process of in organising a safe crossing over the interstate to gain access to the compound where the Bundy’s cattle is being held.

Incredibly, the actions this afternoon have thus far been peaceful and well organised, with protesters cooperation with law enforcement to help facilitate an orderly transfer of the livestock back to the Bundy Ranch and Gold Butte (see photo below, taken from the highway).

Cowboys and supporters then gathered at the entrance of the BLM’s cattle holding area, and after a tense period where armed federal agents did not stand down on request, the keys to the gates were finally handed over, as the BLM appeared to recognise a “credible opposition”. Bundy cowboys along with their peaceful supporters – and backed up by a well-trained and organised militia, then proceeded to reclaim their livestock herd and the process of driving them back to the Gold Butte area grazing lands was underway.

      This is far from over. The truth has leaked out about Harry Reid and
      the Chinese solar power plant and this is to pull back to remove heat
      about that…they will figure out a different way to come at this guy,
      don’t think for ONE SECOND they have given up on this, they just don’t
      want it blown up, they will slink back in like a thief in the night when
      the winds have calmed and we are looking somewhere else…
      Do you trust your government!?

      Why do idiots want to connect the Bundys who herd cattle with the ‘Illuminati’? What a f-ing joke. Very sad.

    The game has changed people. For the moment we have the Internet so that we can bypass the liars in media. We need to use our cameras and our social media against them.

    Game changer. Let’s use it to our advantage and keep these tyrants on the run.

    this is the first time Americans have shown backbone en masse in a long time and frankly I think it took them by surprise. We the People are the ULTIMATE authority on the land as sons and daughters of God. Evil always melts away in the face of courage.
