FEDS Retaliate Against The Bundy Ranch And Southern Nevada

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Remember the Bundy Ranch ordeal from back in April-2014?

As promised from Harry Reid who warned that this is not over, and that “something will happen”, well it appears that it is happening.

The federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people with an official notice recently released by the Federal Registry, declaring that nearly 3 million acres of land in southern Nevada will be declared “ACEC” (read below) and placed off limits to nearly all human activity…


On Friday October 10th, 2014 a Notice from the federal registry reveals that the Bundy ranch and most of the rest of Southern Nevada, to become “Areas of Critical Environmental Concern” (ACECs) – decided by non-elected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., and imposed against the people and the State of Nevada.

90 days from October 10th, 2014 these proposals will become federal law without consent from the Nevada State legislatures or the people of Southern Nevada.

Here’s a refresher as to what went down earlier this year:

A Revolutionary Spark In Nevada

“Areas of Critical Environmental Concern” (ACECs) are human restricted management areas. ACECs have been a tool used by the federal government to gain further control of large masses of western lands and resources.

As proposed, nearly 3 million acres in Southern Nevada will be locked away from the people. This includes most uses on the land (recreational, agricultural or otherwise).

Listed below are just a few of the outlined restriction that come with ACECs:

· Closed Roads
· Excluded Trails
· Closed to Camping
· Closed to Recreational Vehicles
· Closed to Motorized Travel
· Closed to Livestock Grazing
· Restricted Human Hiking
· Restricted Horseback Riding
· Exclude Group Recreations
· Closed to Mineral Development
· Closed to Water Access
· Closed to Hunting / Target Shooting

The Southern Nevada people soon will have less access to their lands than any other people in the history of this country.

There are 33 new Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) proposed to cover Southern Nevada totaling 1,739,795 acres. 12 of the 22 existing ACECs are also proposed to be expanded. (See List Below) The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) filed this lists on October 1st.

This is a direct assault on the State of Nevada. It is also a deliberate retaliation against the people for standing against the horrific action of several federal agencies at the Bundy ranch.

The boldness of the federal government’s timing and action on these matters are astonishing. They are again making a clear case that they are willing to use federal power to punish the local people. Harry Reid’s declaration “This is not over” is proving to be uncharacteristically accurate.

Before the Bundy ranch standoff, there were approximately 1 million acres of ACECs in Southern Nevada. Now after the Bundy standoff, the BLM is proposing an additional 1.8 Million acres (a 280% increase) all of which just happens to be in Southern Nevada.

Although this is not proof, anybody with a little intelligence can see that Harry Reid and the BLM are not protecting the environment; they are punishing their enemies.

How is it that all newly proposed critical environmental land in the Untied States just happens to reside within miles of the Bundy ranch? Is the land in Southern Nevada so different/ dangerous/ special/ delicate and important?

From near the beginning of history, tyrannical men have sought to oppress through the control of land and resources,

“Control the land and resources, and you have the power to control the people”.

There is a direct correlation to land and resources with power and wealth. All major powers in world history have gained their power & wealth by conquering the land and controlling the resources.

It is self-evident that certain men within our government understand this and have implemented these age-old tactics upon the people of this country. For decades they have used government to gain power & wealth for themselves by controlling the land and resources.

Our founding fathers understood this nature, they drafted the Constitution to protect us from the despotic men that history is so full of. They limited the powers of government by outlining what lands the federal government can control and by separating the powers they hold. Their intent was to quickly dispose the land and resources to the local people, where it is most safe.

Under federal rule, the people that live on or near the land have no say to what happens in their own backyards. They have no republic form of government. The decisions are all made by appointed representatives from Washington D.C. These representatives have no responsibility to the people and there is no practical legal way to hold them accountable. In direct violation of the U.S. Constitution federal agencies use the lands as their own and suppress the rightful stewards.

At the moment of Statehood land inside the new State is no longer U.S. Territory, and no longer does U.S. Congress or any of the federal agencies have authority to dispose of the land or make any rules or regulations respecting to it. At Statehood it becomes the right and duty of the people of the State to dispose of and regulate all the lands within the boarders of that State. This is called a republic form of government, for the people, by the people.

The incident at the Bundy ranch indicates that people are beginning to question the legitimacy of federally control lands within their State. It also proves that the people have the courage to stand against despotic government actions. The purpose of the federal government is to protect and uphold the rights of the people, not to profit from the spoils in taking their lands and resources away.

The recent action of the BLM in creating new federal code (ACECs) to expand their control and power by restricting the people further from their lands is a continuation of illegally controlling land with-in a State.

Will the County and State representatives take courage and end the unconstitutional federal control of land and resources within the State? The legal and rightful control of the land belongs to the local people. The land within the State must be returned to people in a republic form of government. It is time for the State to dispose of the land to the people, open the land up for useful purposes, and protect the preemptive property rights of the people.

      time for people to stand.

      • TIME

        Dear TLS,

        Its really LONG past the TIME, that the American people took a stand to take back their NATION, from the criminals who have stolen it.

        I firmly believe that all people should work together, to treat each other as they would like to be treated.

        The “Socialist Democracy” form of government we have has since 1900 is not working out.


        • truthlovingsoul

          agreed. peace to you too.

    • neanderthal

      sounds to me like the : whoever the government is : is trying to steal our American Land. By a Statement. WTF.

      Hmmmm. come and get it boys.

      • David

        It’s time to remove this federal mafia from our country.

        Hey … it’s not like they have any legitimacy whatsoever. We have an unducumented worker in the highest office in the land. He’s being ignored by the legislative branch and protected by the judiciary.

    • neanderthal

      Has anyone seen Nancy Or Harry lately?

      • komotion

        Like voting in a Republican is going to help? They both have the same ending agenda.

    • bozzchem

      Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

      John F. Kennedy

      Anyone who believes there is a peaceful resolution to what the criminal, unconstitutional corporation in DC has become has never studied history. Rest assured, things will get worse before they get better.

      Tick Tock Tick Tock…. hope Harry Reid is enjoying his freedom because it isn’t going to last much longer.
      Harry Reid should by all accounts be in prison already. It won’t be long.
      I can’t wait for him to have the opportunity to “feeeeeeeel” the inequality, misrepresentation and loss of freedom that he has lavished us with for his tenure.
      He’s an enemy to our Nevada and The USA, a failure, a thief, a liar, an embarrassment to our country and a bully and that’s the legacy he has invoked his “free will” to create and sustain.
      He will have lots of “quiet time” to think about it in the near future.

    • truthzilla

      As soon as you factor in the constitution you lost the argument…The constitution is what they are actually using to do what they are doing…The United States inc. is a for profit corporation of criminals residing in the sovereign nation of DC…You have no rights because your parents give you to the state at birth. Legally, you are a slave. A slave can own nothing. You willingly walk around with Identification with your name spelled in all capital letters; Capitus diminutio maximus.

    • Millennium

      Mr. Reid……I prophecy that you literally lose your head while your still breathing.

      It is TIME for the people of the 11 Western States to force their State governments to demand EQUALITY with all other States or withdraw from the Union.

      Prior to entry into the United States, the Terrirories were REQUIRED to cede back all lands not in Private ownership to the federal government as a condition of Statehood.

      This requirement was written into the admission agreement by the politicians and bureaucrats in office at the time and WAS NOT a ‘requirement’ at the time the previous States entered the Union, and certainly NOT in effect when the firts thirteen created the United States.

      This “REQUIREMENT” forever doomed the 11 Contiguous States to SECOND CLASS ststus and SUBSERVIENT to the whims and Will of the preceeding States.

      Alaska and Hawaii, at the time of their acceptance were forced into the same Subserviency.

      THAT is THIRTEEN States that have been Unconstitutionally forced into Slavery to all other States.

      And those 13 States have been treated like dirt under the feet of DC for entirely too long.

      Here is what the cesspool mafia stands for. The longer you sit back and remain passavive the more effort you will need to remove the mafia leaders, Pelosi, reid, odumba, and the rest of the red mafia. Now is the time to stand and voice your opinion before they crush you like a 8Ucking bug. I am ready to stand shoudler to should with every American patriot. Just say when!

    • Ideas Time

      This could all end quickly if it was proven the the BLM is a foreign trust owned by the UN which is what I have heard.

      The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) may in fact not have any jurisdiction to do anything and everything they have done in the past would be null and void.

      Someone who has the know how of how to find out who and what they really are needs to figure it out and expose them.

        Ask and you Shall Receive, from (Wake Up)
        The reconstruction act of 1867 was passed at gunpoint. This relinquished the state sovereignty under the federal mantle. 1868 14 amendment was passed which created a United States citizen which all states had to ratify in order to become a government. The act of 1871 incorporated the District of Columbia which relinquished its government power in order to engage in commerce. 1933 enacted the trading with the enemy act on america. 1945 the international organization immunities Act made them an international corporation. We have been occupied by a hostile foreign corporation. Everything is private from the police, blm, irs everything. See 10dot4075 where the office of administrative hearings had no subject matter jurisdiction to hear a case against the police department, DMV, etc. Because they ARE PRIVATE CONTRACTORS not part of the excutive branch of government and not an agency. THEY ARE IMPORSONATING OUR GOVERNMENT. They are using the W-9 in order to recieve the federal funding and they are embezzling it. They expatriate themselves when they take an oath of office to hold that foreign position see 8 USC 1481. WAKE UP. They are subject to the Geneva treaties in which they come under the Liber Code.

      Just another piece of the Agenda 21 pie. Keep bending over, they’ll just keep bringing it. Wish I had the money to stage an Occupy Nevada. Gosh, Harry Reid is such an absolute creep. So icky. Can’t even stand to look at him.

    • NWO for Dummies.

      Drastic and evil action like this could only be mooted in an atmosphere of martial law. This to my mind portends a revolution… question is how far will they go knowing people with guns will only be pushed so far.

    • Don't be hating!

      Save the MOO MOOS….Nazi Obama at it again! -rn the Federal Reserve down…Time to visit corrupt politicians and judges. Take back your lands. Fire up the moonshine

      Time for a beer!

    • jbarrus

      I have been telling the Utah State Legislators that it is really easy to take back our land. Just pass a resolution instructing the County Recorders to change the name on their ownership plats to show the County owns the land and not the Federal Government. The Legislators argue with me that the State will be sued by the Feds. I tell them, “That’s great, it’s exactly what I would expect. Let the Feds bring suit in the Federal Courts. The Constitution clearly says that the Federal Government can own the 10 square miles where Washington District of Corruption is located, and they can have dock-yards, arsenals, forts, and other needful buildings. The BLM land, the Forest Service land, and other Federal lands do not match these requirements. The Constitution also demands that the State Legislature approve the PURCHASE of the land from the state. The feds cannot show where they got the approval from the Legislature, nor can they show a receipt for buying the land. It’s easy, just take back our land by changing the records and tell the Feds to get lost.

    • 7979barb

      The people of southern Nevada need to bring a cause of action law suit against these appointed Federal Bureaucrats for violation of their constitutional rights. They need to seek an injunction by their local courts against this unlawful seizure of their private property.

    • TonysTake

      With these election results tonight, we have the backing of the House and now the Senate. A death blow to the socialist democrats. Our lands are our lands and we will fight to keep them.
