Wayne Allyn Root on the Nevada Standoff

Forget the Ukraine. The real revolution is happening right now north of Las Vegas where a rancher is under assault by the U.S. government.

Remember that famous Las Vegas advertising slogan, “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas.” Well when it comes to big government stealing our property and violating our rights, it’s just not true. What’s happening in Vegas is symbolic of what’s happening across this once great country.

This federal government assault on a Nevada ranching family looks a lot like the Gestapo, the Stasi, or any other authoritarian Big Brother force that persecutes, intimidates and controls the people with an iron boot. Think I’m exaggerating? How about a Las Vegas elected official (County Commissioner Tom Collins) warning out of state protestors “to make funeral plans.” This isn’t Ukraine, or Moscow. That was a Las Vegas politician threatening to have government agents murder law-abiding protesters. https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/water-environment/collins-manages-insult-utahns-comments-bundy-roundup

My Jewish grandparents told me “Never forget.” What they meant was, “We must never forget the Holocaust and what happened to our people.” Well it’s time to remember, before America is no longer the land of the free! Before your free speech is corralled into a “First Amendment Area.” Before government can steal your land and take away your rights based on trumped up charges. Before government can use force to taser legal non-violent protesters. Before someone is killed by masked government snipers with AK47’s trained on American citizens.

Don’t look now. It’s happening. This is an offshoot of Obama’s plan for America- an open distaste and disgust for ranchers, farmers, hunters, capitalist owners of land. Obama hates independence. Under this administration we have record numbers of welfare, food stamp, disability and unemployment insurance. We have a government spending record money advertising to entice more Americans – even illegal immigrants- to accept food stamps and entitlement checks. We’ve given up on enforcing illegal immigration.

Obama treasures a nation filled with people who are desperate, helpless and dependent on government checks. He desperately needs to stamp out independent and self-reliant Americans who want nothing to do with the government. Look no further than this declaration of war upon a productive, taxpaying Nevada rancher family.

Obama always shows his hand with the three-letter government organizations- IRS, NSA, EPA, ATF, FDA, SEC. Obama uses them to target, intimidate and persecute his critics and political opponents. Now it’s time for a new 3-letter threat: BLM (Bureau of Land Management).

The federal government has surrounded the Bundy family ranch outside Las Vegas with snipers, heavily militarized police, vicious police dogs, black SUV’s, helicopters, low flying airplanes and automatic weapons. Cliven Bundy, is a patriotic rancher whose family has had the right to graze his cattle on this land since the 1870’s. Since before there was a BLM. Bundy does not believe he owes fees to the BLM. He recognizes this as a States’ Rights issue. https://danaloeschradio.com/the-real-story-of-the-bundy-ranch/

After well over a century with grazing rights on this land, suddenly in the 1990’s the federal government demanded rent to allow the Bundy family’s cattle to graze on it. Bundy claims his rights to graze came from the State of Nevada, not the BLM, and has already paid fees to Clark County, Nevada. Bundy already owns the water and forage rights to the land. https://danaloeschradio.com/the-real-story-of-the-bundy-ranch/

The feds blame this assault on the fact that desert tortoises reside on this land. The government is now using the tortoise as their “cover” for an armed assault on an American ranching family. Yet it is important to note that this same BLM has waived rules protecting the desert tortoise on numerous occasions to support wind and solar projects favored by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. https://www.defenders.org/press-release/bureau-land-management-solar-plan-guides-energy-development-lower-conflict-areas.


The BLM says Bundy owes $1.1 million in grazing fees (ostensibly to protest the desert tortoise) and has decided to use lethal force, positioning snipers on hilltops to perhaps shoot our own citizens. They’ve sicced vicious guard dogs on a pregnant woman. https://drleonardcoldwell.com/2014/04/10/feds-assault-cancer-victim-pregnant-woman-in-clash-with-bundy-supporters/

They’ve tasered and arrested members of the Bundy family for standing up to a force killing and stealing their property. https://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/04/10/tense-video-feds-taser-pro-nevada-rancher-protester-during-clash/

Bundy’s sister (a cancer victim) was thrown to the ground. Son Dave Bundy was beaten, bruised and arrested by this Gestapo-like force for the crime of…taking photos outside “the First Amendment Area.” https://mvprogress.com/2014/04/09/bundy’s-son-arrested-in-roundup-incident-public-protest-results/

And they’ve tried to banish protestors to a “First Amendment Area” where free speech is “allowed.” Funny, I thought free speech was a right everywhere on American soil? https://www.americasfreedomfighters.com/2014/04/11/blm-feds-assault-more-protesters-as-first-amendment-area-taken-down/

This is happening in America. Our country.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval (a very moderate Republican) is angered by the federal government assault on property and States’ Rights. Sandoval said, “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists, nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans. The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”

Nevada U.S. Senator Dean Heller told BLM Director Neil Kornze, “…law-abiding Nevadans must not be penalized by an over-reaching BLM.”

Between you and me, I think these are both very weak statements for government overreach this dramatic.

Clive Bundy used to have 52 rancher neighbors. They are all gone. He is the last man standing because the BLM has regulated ranchers out of business in favor of tortoises and green energy projects.

Government isn’t just brutal, vicious and over-reaching. Government is hypocritical. This same government that is supposedly acting to protect desert tortoises, killed hundreds of these same tortoises only a year ago because they didn’t have the funding to take care of them. https://www.infowars.com/before-nevada-cattle-rancher-dispute-blm-was-euthanizing-endangered-desert-tortoise/

Even more to the point, why protect desert tortoises if you’re killing cattle? Rendering trucks have been spotted at the government assault. For you city folk, rendering trucks are used to transport dead cattle. Bundy believes cattle are dropping dead in 90 degree heat after being chased by government helicopters.


Then there’s the glaring conflicts of interest in this case. Is the Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie refusing to intervene on behalf of a Nevada family because he is afraid of losing Homeland Security funding? The Sheriff is on the Board of Directors of The Nevada Commission on Homeland Security. https://dem.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/demnvgov/content/homeland_security/APPROVED%20MINUTES_NCHS_062113_klh.pdf

And there are now reports that U.S. Senator Harry Reid and his powerful attorney son Rory Reid want Bundy’s cattle off the land to make room for a $5 billion dollar Chinese solar project.


After Cliven Bundy’s property and rights are taken away, who will be next? Who knows what justification the BLM or corrupt government bullies like Harry Reid will use to steal your property, or beat your son for daring to take photos, or taser your pregnant daughter, or push to the ground your cancer-surviving wife.

Wake up America. Either we stand up to Big Brother, or everything our great Founding Fathers fought for will soon be gone.

Marine Kills Two At Quantico Base, Takes Own Life.

This Just In.

Fri Mar 22, 2013 6:37am EDT
(Reporting by Cynthia Johnston; Editing by Pravin Char and W Simon)


(Reuters) – An active-duty Marine shot dead two fellow service members at a base at Quantico, Virginia, then barricaded himself in a building and killed himself, prompting a brief lockdown of the base, the Marines said on Friday.
The shootings took place late on Thursday near the Officer Candidate School at the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, and all three people who died were identified as Marines, Marines spokesman Sergeant Christopher Zahn said.
Zahn, who is based at Quantico, could give no details as to a motive for the shootings.
“The investigation is in the very early stages,” he said.
“An isolated shooting incident has occurred at Officer Candidate School, Quantico,” the base separately said on its Facebook page. “The suspect has been barricaded by law enforcement personnel.”
The Facebook message told base residents to remain in their homes with their doors locked, until the lockdown was lifted early on Friday.
The Marines did not name the service members who died, pending
notification of their families. ABC News quoted a military official as saying the suspect had been identified as a staff member at the cadet school, as was one of the victims.
ABC also said that the second person killed was a female Marine found dead in the barracks, but gave no further details.
The shooting, which ABC News reported took place in a barracks near the school, came days after seven U.S. Marines were killed in a mortar explosion at an Army munitions depot in Nevada during a live-fire training
n that incident on Monday, a lightweight mortar exploded prematurely in its firing tube, killing the Marines from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, who had been undergoing mountain warfare training, and wounding eight other service members.
It prompted the Marines to order a blanket suspension of the use of 60mm mortars pending a review.

Gun-toting black Democrat threatens to harm Assembly Speaker

Just in time for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day.
Nevada police arrested black state legislator Steven Brooks for threatening to do bodily harm to State Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, a white female, because she did not appoint him chair of a committee.
When police apprehended Brooks, they found he had a gun in his car.
Brooks is a Democrat serving Nevada Assembly District 17 in northern Clark County. Kirkpatrick is a North Las Vegas Democrat who was recently elected speaker.
If it had been a white legislator who threatened his black colleague, would the police and media call this a racist “hate crime”?

Steven_BrooksSteven Brooks (l); Marilyn Kirkpatrick (r)

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, Jan. 20, 2013, that Nevada State Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested Saturday night on a charge of threatening Nevada Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
State Sen. Kelvin Atkinson said he had informed Kirkpatrick of Brooks’ threat against her, and that Brooks had been telling people Kirkpatrick’s “first day as speaker would be her last.”
North Las Vegas police said Brooks, 40, was booked about 6 p.m. at the Las Vegas City Jail on a felony charge of intimidating a public officer by threat of physical violence.
Police said they responded to a home in North Las Vegas at about 3:45 p.m. Saturday in response to reported threats to an elected official, though authorities would not say who Brooks reportedly threatened.
Brooks was arrested without incident during a traffic stop near Carey Avenue and Mount Hood Street. A law enforcement source said a gun was found in Brooks’ car.
Lawmakers said they knew Brooks has been upset and felt sidelined by Kirkpatrick, who did not give him the chairmanship of the powerful Assembly Ways and Means Committee, although she did name him to the committee.
Instead, the chair job went to Assembly­woman Maggie Carlton.
One lawmaker said on condition of anonymity that Brooks seemed agitated during a recent Interim Finance Committee meeting that Carlton chaired. “He kept getting up and down and walking in and out of the meeting. He was acting a little strangely.”
The lawmaker said about three weeks ago, Brooks began approaching other Assembly members, soliciting help in ousting Kirkpatrick as leader of the lower house because he believed “she’s out to get me.” But Brooks didn’t get much support and “seemed to accept” that she would remain as leader, though he remained troubled by his situation. Kirkpatrick knew of Brooks’ efforts to remove her.
Kirkpatrick could not be reached for comment Sunday but other legislative leaders said they wanted to hear from Brooks before rushing to judgement.
Brooks is beginning his second term as an assemblyman. His first term, representing District 19 prior to re­apportionment, was largely uneventful. Assigned to the Transportation, Judiciary and Health and Human Services committees, he seldom said anything in floor debates. Kirkpatrick, however, has gained a lot of popularity, including with Republicans, who often praised her for her fairness.
According to his biography on Votesmart.org, Brooks is a former mathematics teacher. At the time of his first election in 2010, he listed his occupation as “self-employed.” He is now a city of Las Vegas management analyst, where he was paid just under $33,000 in 2011, according to a city employee listing. Brooks’ position is appointed, meaning he is not in the Las Vegas City Employees Association and is employed at will.
In a statement, city spokesman David Riggleman said, “Yes, we are aware of Steve Brooks’ arrest. As is the city’s standard practice, we will treat this situation as a personnel matter, meaning the facts surrounding it will be thoroughly reviewed. Following that review, the city will take the appropriate action.”

Update (March 30, 2013):

On March 28, 2013, Brooks was expelled from the Nevada State Assembly, after which he led police on a 15-mile high-speed chase and was arrested. Brooks tried to choke and hit a police dog with a wrench. (See “Black Nevada state legislator expelled and arrested after hi-speed police chase“)

Reno Air Races Disaster

RENO, Nev. (AP) — As thousands watched in horror, a World War II-era fighter plane competing in a Nevada event described as a car race in the sky suddenly pitched upward, rolled and did a nose-dive toward the crowded grandstand.
The plane, flown by a 74-year-old veteran Hollywood stunt pilot, then slammed into the concrete in a section of VIP box seats and blew to pieces in front the pilot’s family and a tight-knit group of friends who attend the annual event in Reno.
“It absolutely disintegrated,” said Tim O’Brien of Grass Valley Calif., who attends the races every year. “I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
Three people were killed and more than 50 injured amid a horrific scene strewn with smoking debris.
Authorities say it appears a mechanical failure with the P-51 Mustang – a class of fighter plane that can fly in excess of 500 mph – was to blame. Some credit the pilot, Jimmy Leeward, with preventing the crash from being far more deadly.
Leeward was among those killed.

What will Skippy say?

A good night for Republicans…and a bad night for Skippy!
The day after President Obama said, “Americans Reject TEA Party Ideas” (thank you Anon), the Americans in Nevada and New York voted, and low and behold, voted for Republicans!  Oh, too bad…soo sad!
First, Republican Bob Turner defeated Democratic state Assemblyman David Weprin to replace disgraced pervert Anthony Weiner’s seat.  With more than 80 percent of precincts reporting, Turner had 54 percent of the vote to Weprin’s 46 percent in unofficial results.

“We’ve been asked by the people of this district to send a message to Washington,” Turner told supporters after the landmark win. “I hope they hear it loud and clear. We’ve been told this is a referendum. Mr. President, we are on the wrong track. We have had it with an irresponsible fiscal policy which endangers the entire economy.”

And in Nevada, Former Republican state senator Mark Amodei has won Nevada’s special election to fill a seat in the U.S. House. This was not a surprise as they typically vote Republican.  Amodei is a former state GOP chairman. He promised to fight for a balanced budget amendment in Congress and signed an anti-tax pledge.
So prey tell, what will Skippy have to say tomorrow as he continues to promote his jobs stimulus program? Bet it will be more rhetoric and delusional thoughts that only his empty suit can deliver.

Reid's Nevada Gets Waiver from ObamaCare

The Health and Human Services Department announced late Friday that Nevada had secured a statewide waiver from certain implementation requirements of the Obama administration’s health care law, because forcing them through, the department found, “may lead to the destabilization of the individual market.”
The announcement makes Nevada one of only three states to have compliance requirements under the health care bill waived.

27% of US Homes Under Water

Due to declining home prices, more than a quarter of all homes in the United States are under water, i.e., the homeowners owe more on their mortgages than what their homes are worth.
John Gittlesohn of Bloomberg reports on February 8, 2011, that about 15.7 million homeowners had negative equity at the end of the year, up from 13.9 million in the previous three months, the real estate information company Zillow said in a report. The total represented 27% of mortgaged single-family homes.
Tom Lawler, a real estate economist and former risk policy veep at Fannie Mae, issued a warning of a 300% increase in foreclosures “coming soon.” (H/t Joseph)

Harry Reid Buys Votes With Free Food, Gift Cards

On top of reports of early voting fraud in Nevada, Harry “But-for-me-we’d-be-in-a-worldwide-depression” Reid is said to be buying votes with free food and gift cards. John Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun reports on October 26, 2010, that the campaign attorney of Sharron Angle, Reid’s GOP opponent, is making these charges in a fundraising letter. Here’s the letter from attorney Cleta Mitchell:

As Sharron Angle’s campaign attorney, I am sorry to report that the Democrats and their cronies are up to their same old tricks, of trying to manipulate the election in hopes of skewing the results in their favor.
Two days ago, the Democratic Secretary of State announced that voters can be provided “free food” at “voter turnout events.” Harry Reid has been offering free food and, according to other reports, some Democratic allies such as teachers’ unions are offering gift cards in return for a vote for Reid.
Before we were even able to document the reported infractions to report to the authorities, the Democrat Secretary of State slammed the door shut on preventing this behavior and issued a public statement permitting these ACORN-style tactics. THESE are the kinds of shenanigans that can turn this race.
Harry Reid intends to steal this election if he can’t win it outright. As a result, we need to deploy literally dozens of election law attorneys and poll watchers to combat these tactics at a cost of nearly $80,000. That’s over and above our current budget. We need to raise $80,000 and we need to do it RIGHT NOW, because even as I am writing this, Harry Reid and his Machine are trying to steal this election. I’m sorry that we have to come to you yet again and ask for you to reach deep and contribute, but we must.
Understand, EVERYTHING we have worked for in the last year could be destroyed by dirty tricks and criminal acts in the next 8 days. As Sharron’s first line of defense on these matters I am absolutely committed to making sure this won’t happen.
What Harry Reid is doing is clearly illegal. Nevada law (NRS 293.700) provides that, “A person who bribes, offers to bribe, or use and other corrupt means, directly or indirectly, to influence any elector in giving his or her vote or to deter the elector from giving it is guilty of a category D felony and shall be punished as provided in NRS 193.130.”
We’ve seen evidence of this sort of voter ‘enticement’ by groups such as ACORN – where, in 2008, two ACORN workers in Milwaukee were accused of offering pre-paid gasoline cards or restaurant gift cards to people in exchange for registration.
John Fund wrote in his book Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, cited reports from the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader (South Dakota) and the election in 2004, where certain residents were quoted saying that “people on the streets were saying you go vote, they would give you gas money, $10, maybe a pack of cigarettes…”
Now, this week in Las Vegas, at our election hotline, we received reports that some teachers’ union representatives were offering Starbucks cards to people to get them to vote for Harry Reid. It is even more disturbing and may be possible that they are using their influence and authority as educators to entice students on behalf of Reid.
Here’s the bottom line: when the powerful are threatened, they will do anything to retain their position. It’s clear now that Harry Reid’s campaign is even willing to skirt the laws of Nevada to do it.
Is there any question that they will do the same on Election Day?
…Please send an urgent contribution so our work will not be in vain. We’re going to win this race as long as we don’t let Harry Reid steal it. Can you help us today?
Cleta Mitchell
Counsel to Friends of Sharron Angle
Republican Nominee for U.S. Senate, Nevada

According to OpenSecrets.org, Reid’s reëlection campaign has raised

Help elect Sharron Angle to the Senate!

$22,635,642 (vs. Angle’s $21,470,516). Shame on all who donated money to Reid. You and your candidate are utterly unscrupulous, determined to steal the election by fraud and chicanery. Shame on you!

Liberal Witches

Why does 68-year-old Behar think the world wants to see her cleavage?

This morning, on that TV show of hectoring carping crones called “The View,” Joy Behar finally stripped away all pretences and showed the world her true ugly face.
Calling a political ad by Nevada Tea Party favorite and GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle “a Hitler youth commercial” that foments racial divisiveness, a hysterical Behar called Angle a “bitch” who’s “going to hell,” and “a moron on top of being evil.”
Here’s Angle’s campaign ad:
Then there’s the other liberal witch, CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric.

Couric au naturel, sans makeup

As reported by Howard Kurtz of the Daily Beast, Couric says she is feeling “liberated” because she’s been spending less time in the studio and more time on the road to gauge the mood of the midterm elections. Couric said “It’s great for me to get out of the chair and into the world. I started out as a reporter, and I still enjoy reporting, [touring] this great unwashed middle of the country.”
And CBS wonders why her Evening News is stuck being the lowest rated of all the network evening news….
Hey, Katie! We inhabitants of Middle-America may be “unwashed” toothless hillbillies who “cling to our bibles and our guns,” but we’re still smart enough to shun you and your faux news. LOL
