BLM Gold Butte National Monument Public Information Forum Mesquite, NV 2/9/17
Raja Dee shared this video of Jeanette Finicum’s statement yesterday to the person who thought it was a good idea to call her “Trash” at the BLM meeting in Mesquite, NV. Raja attended the meeting and described things from her perspective:
“I knew going to the meeting with BLM last night was not going to go the way I would like. I’ve been to these meetings before. They are normally not productive in the least. But for me, last nights meeting was productive personally but not until the very end of it. I have learned that no matter what is going on around me I NEED TO BE THE BETTER PERSON and show respect. There has been enough slinging of words that are hurtful. I also believe the man in this video has remorse and maybe got caught up in the meeting like others had. We all make mistakes! We need to learn from them and also be forgiving of others that make mistakes.
Last night Mrs. Finicum put us all in our place and there is a very valuable lesson here to be learned.”
I agree. I could tell the man was not just embarassed, but ashamed. There’s a difference. We all can take heed of Jeanette’s words, and do better. But I will say, in general, we make an effort to clean up after ourselves and we don’t go ’round jumping on cars and burning up stuff! That’s the OTHER BLM! Ha!
Just over a week ago, I was chatting with dear Brother David Zion Bruger about my little NOT GUILTY! buttons and how they have been helpful. I told him that I learned years ago that God can and does use very small things to do very big things. That person saying that one word, “trash”, set forth rightous indignation which has now brought attention to not only the BLM goings on, and the murder of LaVoy Finicum, but some well needed self checking for all of us. If we’re going to get through it together, peacefully and principled, we need to get it done.
Thank you Jeanette. Thank you too, sir.

This is Skipper’s live stream from the BLM Gold Butte National Monument Public Information Forum held in Mesquite, NV on Thursday, February 9, 2017. Scheduled to run from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Mesquite City Hall the BLM made presentations and took questions regarding this land grab in Nevada.
There are definite periods when reception got really bad and the sound quality is the pits. John Lamb was also recording the meeting and when that becomes available it will be uploaded to this channel. Hopefully it will be better since I don’t think he was relying on a phone connection.
The representatives of the BLM dodged a lot of questions presented by supporters of the ranchers and others on trial for Bunkerville in Las Vegas. Supporters of the BLM had questions about the implementaion of the “proclamation” and often ridiculed Bundy supporters in the room. At one point Brand Thronton, present at both Bunkerville and Malheur, and witness at the 1st trial in Portland, OR, was shouted at by someone who said, “You ought to be in jail.” The same type of reaction was given to Shawna Cox, who was in the truck with LaVoy Finicum when he was murdered. Shawna was found NOT GUILTY in the first Portland trial of US vs Bundy et all.
The meeting was intense at times with both sides speaking out of turn which resulted in Jeanette Finicum, widow of the slain LaVoy Finicum, walking out due to frustration at the behavior of both sides. On her way out of the room, someone there called her “Trash.” Let’s just say that was the straw that broke Mrs. Finicum’s back. She came back into the room, got a microphone, then proceeded to chastize the rude individual and the entire room for their behavior. I have transcribed her statements below the video.
“I don’t have a question, I have a comment as well. I’ve been sitting in this audience listening to us go back and forth, I don’t really have a question in reference to any of this. I didn’t like when the side I was sitting over there was talking out of turn. I thought it was disrespectful. I thought it was disrespectful when I saw people doing it from this side. And then walking over and getting in the faces of the people over there. I think both sides have behaved badly, to some degree. And then when I didn’t like what the side was doing over there, which I am a part of…I get up to leave peacefully…because I don’t want to behave like that. I don’t want to sit over there when the people are talking out of turn and being disrespectful to the person asking the question. Or, to the person who is answering the question. “
Then, Jeanette Finicum turns and faces the man who called her “Trash.” who was standing a few feet away. He stood up and started to walk towards her. Jeanette Finicum continued…
“But how dare you call me a name as I’m walking out? How dare you insult me? And I must come back and say that. Calling somebody ‘trash’? And then, telling me that I’m trash…’You too, sister’? Because I have the politeness to walk out when my side was being rude? This is not OK! Not OK! And my family has paid the ultimate price! And I won’t take it from any of you in this room. Until you can stand like my husband did bravely then, come talk to me.”
Jeanette turns to the man who called her “Trash.”
“And how dare you speak to anybody in this room like that! We all can get out of sorts, but we can still be civil!
Jeanette then left the room in tears. One can hear the man trying to approach Mrs. Finicum but was asked to go away. Then, back inside, as they were trying to end the meeting, a woman sitting in the front asked to speak. She said…
“I’m so glad that Jeanette said something. I work with children…all day long. And I had to sit here and almost contain myself to say, ‘Stop it!’ Quit acting like 2 yr olds! I don’t like that BLM has come in and is taking this land. I have been here for over 25 years. It’s how it’s done. But we have to work together. As far as the lady who mentioned something about feeling safe when the BLM was here… I stood and watched the sniper rifle pointing at me while I’m watching children on a playground in Bunkerville. I don’t feel safe with BLM but they’re not law enforcement! That’s not their job. I definitely think that I would add that the committee would definitely take these Bunkerville people, and let them be on your committee . Don’t fence them out. They live out there! Some of these people, yeah, they may rub you the wrong way…but to be rude and to tell people they are liars and stupid? Oh my goodness, if you were at my school you would be standing on the wall for your lunch time! Thank you.”
The exchange can be seen starting at 34:00 in Part 2 of the meeting, complete videos below.
