It’s hard to believe this story is taking place in this country. In our country. A Nevada rancher is having his cattle and open public land seized by the federal government. The feds are saying that Rancher Cliven Bundy can no longer use the public land for his cattle because of the endangered desert tortoise and there has been a standoff over this land that has been getting more heated every day.
Bundy vowed to do “whatever it takes” and has not ruled out a range war over this issue.
Wednesday night on “Hannity” Bundy would not relent:
Partial transcript as follows:
HANNITY: Let me ask you one last question, Cliven. You talked about a range war with the federal government. There is a lot of people out there, now that they are taking your cattle that are fearful this is another Waco situation. Ruby Ridge has come up in some articles. What do you mean by “range war?” How far are you willing to take this?
BUNDY: Well, you know, my cattle is only one issue that — the United States courts ordered that the government can seize my cattle but what they have done is seized Nevada statehood, Nevada law, Clark County public land, access to the land and have seized access to all of the other rights of Clark County people that like to go hunting and fishing and pulls that down and we’re here to protest that action and we are after freedom. We’re after some liberty.
HANNITY: How far are you willing to go? How far are you willing to take this?
BUNDY: Cliven Bundy’s — my statement to the American people, I’ll do whatever it takes to gain our liberties and freedom back.
