Bundy supporters party, welcome ‘domestic terrorist’ label

“Are you guys domestic terrorists?” he asked the crowd gathered around a stage near the north bank of the Virgin River. The supporters, many wearing name tags that said “domestic terrorist,” erupted with cheers and applause.
Mike Vanderboegh said he will unveil the “2014 incitement to civil war trophy” to Reid on Saturday at the protest area.
“Harry Reid said this ain’t over. You better believe this ain’t over,” said Vanderboegh, a self-described “Second Amendment activist” from Alabama.

Great day (lousy evening for me)

The press conference went well (video and photos when I get them). The Bundy BBQ was a great success. Unfortunately I had difficulty eating, puked and continued puking until I was able to get to a reader's car and lay down. I stayed there for four hours so I missed most of the festivities. Looking forward to the speech tomorrow. I intend to grab old Dirty Harry by the teat and twist. Every time he opens his mouth it is good for another 100,000 converts to our side. More tomorrow.

Obama defense cuts make certain adjustments necessary in the Army's training cycle.

Actually it's from World War I.

Don't do us any favors, you treasonous anal sphincter. "McKinney would give ‘deference’ to repeal of gun-control law."

Sen. John P. McKinney, a Republican who helped pass a bipartisan gun-control law after the Newtown school massacre in his district, tells a conservative audience in a video Democrats posted Wednesday that he would not block the law’s hypothetical repeal if elected governor.
McKinney told The Mirror Wednesday that his answer to a hypothetical question about a GOP takeover of the legislature and passage of a repeal bill was not a retreat from his support for the gun-control law.
He said he made clear to the group he would not change his vote, nor would he seek repeal of the law as governor, positions he has staked out at other forums, including a televised debate.

Hope to catch up with Will Grigg while he's here.

Ranchers vs. Regulators: The Clark County Range War

Attention Indiana Threepers

Assuming Harry Ried's dirty minions allow me to leave the state of Nevada in one piece after tomorrow, ;-), I will be headed to Indianapolis next Thursday to cover the NRA convention. I would be interested to hear from Threepers in the Indianoplis area regarding some planning for that visit. Please drop me an email at GeorgeMason1776@aol.com.

Sheriff Mack's assertion about pre-planning of the cynical use of women and kids at the Bundy confrontation is flat wrong.

There are those who say that, like Ronald Reagan's dictum about members of the GOP, "thou shalt speak no evil about leaders in the patriot movement." I am not one of them, especially when what they do or say is in direct contravention of the truth and the principles that we are supposed to be fighting for.
I first heard about this video on the way out to Nevada.
“We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front,” he said. “If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”
Our enemies immediately jumped on this.
Even the Washington Times reported it, "Former sheriff willing to let wife, daughters die on front lines of Bundy ranch," as did The Blaze. The collectivist ThinkProgress reported gleefully: "Allies Of Lawless Rancher Planned To Put Women ‘Up At The Front’ If Showdown With Feds Turned Violent."
As did the Huffington Post: Ex-Sheriff Wanted 'Women In Front' In Case Of Shootout With Feds."
And of course Dirty Harry Reid was all over this "evidence" of our side's "terrorism": "Reid calls Bundy supporters ‘domestic terrorists’
U.S. Sen. Harry Reid on Thursday called supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” because they defended him against a Bureau of Land Management cattle roundup with guns and put their children in harm’s way. . . According to Reid, some protesters said they had “children and women lined up because if anyone got hurt we wanted to make sure they got hurt first, because we want the federal government hurting women and children. … What if others tried the same thing?”
There's only one problem with Mack's statement. IT WASN'T TRUE. Later Mack tried to walk it back, a bit, in this interview with Ben Swann: Did Bundy Ranch Protesters Put Women Between Themselves and Armed Federal Agents?
“It was a tactical ploy that I was trying to get them to use.” says Mack. Mack goes on to clarify that the ploy was not adopted and that he was not on the scene during the standoff. He continued by saying that he would risk his own life as well in taking a stand.
“I would have been next. I would have been the next one to be killed. I’m not afraid to die here, I’m willing to die here. But the best ploy would have been to have had women in front because one, I don’t think they would have shot them. Two, if they had it would have been the best thing to show the rest of the world that these ruthless cowards will do anything they are told. If they are told to shoot they will shoot. Just like when they shot Vicki Weaver when they blew her head off in front of her little girl while she was holding a baby.” says Mack.
Even this "modified, limited hangout" wasn't true. I have spoken with folks who were in that meeting and they flatly deny that anything of the kind happened. One said "we were all blindsided by that when we saw the video later." Another said, "It didn't happen that I heard." Another speculated that the "strategizing" about using women and children as human shields must have occurred inside Mack's own head, saying, "I can tell you that I never heard Mack make such a proposal . . . and if he had it would have been shot down."
The cynical use of women and kids as shields is collectivist's tool of long-standing. For Mack to attribute it to people who were trying to plan for the preservation of innocent life if the BLM thugs used deadly violence is an insult. Why he did what he did and said what he said is mystifying to other participants, although they hesitate to publicly criticize him. The one thing that can be concluded is that he gave the enemies of liberty a big propaganda stick with which to beat the rest of us with. He ought to come clean about what and why he did what did and said what he said. My own conclusion is that he owes the people in that room a big apology.

NY Judge Dismisses Challenge To NY SAFE Act

A New York judge has dismissed a challenge to the state’s stricter guns laws, saying that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and lawmakers did nothing unconstitutional when quickly passing the NY Safe Act early last year.

Look what an FBI file full of blackmail buys you: Old Yellowstain Boehner Tells Attendees at Fundraiser He's 'Hellbent on Getting This Done'

House Immigration Bills Are Still in the Mix
Speaker John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they aim to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections.
Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Mr. Boehner said at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month he was "hellbent on getting this done this year," according to two people in the room.

Authorities not yet enforcing weapons law

Two gun owners who attended a recent rally at the state Capitol told the Record-Journal they were defying the law based on Second Amendment grounds. They spoke on condition of anonymity due to the potential for prosecution. One of the gun owners said he had never registered his Colt AR-15 bought in the 1980s as required under the 1994 gun ban. Since then he’s bought more AR-15-style rifles, he said, along with an AK-47 pattern weapon. The guns are hidden off his property and will remain so until he needs them, he said.

Press Release: Harry Reid to be awarded 2014 Incitement to Civil War Trophy by citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh

PRESS RELEASE
17 April 2014
Harry Reid to be awarded 2014 Incitement to Civil War Trophy by citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh
Senator Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, will be awarded the 2014 "Incitement to Civil War" Trophy by Alabama citizen journalist and Second Amendment activist Mike Vanderboegh at a ceremony at the Cliven Bundy Ranch on Saturday, April 19, 2014. Vanderboegh, who with fellow writer David Codrea first broke the Fast and Furious scandal story in a series on the Internet in December 2010 and January 2011, is in Nevada to show support for the Bundy family and their struggle with the federal government.
Said Vanderboegh, "When Dirty Harry Reid tells us that 'This isn't over' and calls the Bundys and their supporters "'domestic terrorists' he is using -- literally -- the 'bully pulpit' to solicit the next American civil war. Reid is a corrupt bully and he understands that this struggle is not about tortoises or cows or even the vast spaces of the American west claimed by the federal government, it is about power, federal power to use naked state-sponsored terrorism to compel the American people to do what the perfumed princes of Harry Reid's Mandarin class insist is for their own good, even if it kills them."
"It was the misbehavior and jack-booted thuggery of the Bureau of Land Management run by Reid's toady that motivated people to come to the Bundys' defense. This is about two fundamentally different answers to this question: 'Does the government serve the people as the Founders intended, or will the people be servants of the government?' Harry Reid believes that the people should serve the government -- or else. For inciting the federal government into planning for another Waco, Reid more than deserves this award."
Vanderboegh will have a further statement and will take questions tomorrow at the press venue down the road from the Bundy Ranch at 1:00 in the afternoon.
Mike Vanderboegh may be contacted at email: GeorgeMason1776@aol.com

Reid calls Bundy supporters ‘domestic terrorists’

Note well: "Reid, the Senate majority leader who is in Las Vegas during Congress’ Easter recess, said he understands there’s a federal task force being set up in order to deal with Bundy, and Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie is involved as well."
U.S. Sen. Harry Reid on Thursday called supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” because they defended him against a Bureau of Land Management cattle roundup with guns and put their children in harm’s way.
“They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said during an appearance at a Las Vegas Review-Journal “Hashtags & Headlines” event at the Paris. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”
The BLM shut down its weeklong roundup of Bundy’s cattle Saturday after an armed confrontation with militia members who had traveled to Southern Nevada.
Bundy has not paid federal grazing fees for 20 years and owes about $1 million to the government.
Reid, the Senate majority leader who is in Las Vegas during Congress’ Easter recess, said he understands there’s a federal task force being set up in order to deal with Bundy, and Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie is involved as well.
“Clive Bundy does not recognize the United States,” Reid said. “The United States, he says, is a foreign government. He doesn’t pay his taxes. He doesn’t pay his fees. And he doesn’t follow the law. He continues to thumb his nose at authority.”
Reid noted there are two court orders allowing BLM to conduct the roundup of Bundy’s 500 to 900 “trespass cattle.”
“It is an issue we cannot let go, just walk away from,” Reid said.
“There were hundreds, hundreds of people from around the country that came there,” Reid said. “They had sniper rifles in the freeway. They had weapons, automatic weapons. They had children lined up. They wanted to make sure they got hurt first … What if others tried the same thing?”

Pardon the delay, but I am now on the ground at the Bundy Ranch operation.

Didn't get in until I had been up for about 27 hours straight (no sleep on the planes because of screaming babies, sitting in an aisle seat and being mugged by lurching passengers and kamikaze beverage carts driven by insane stewardesses -- Delta, what can I tell you). My first few hours on scene were very instructive. Oath Keepers is doing a great job supporting the security operation with logistics and other support. Plenty of Oath Keepers and Three Percenters in the group. There is also an outer encampment that seems to be inhabited largely by fruits and nuts. The EBGs (evil bad guys) are certainly testing the perimeter and playing all sorts of psywar games -- which is being handled by competent folks in the security detail. The problem is that there are now too few to rotate out for rest -- and it is important that folks be fresh when faced with the various threats, especially those generated by the fruits and nuts. (Stewart Rhodes, who brought me from the airport around 0200HRS, immediately took over a post from a fatigued trooper for the rest of the night.) There is no margin for error, so fresh bodies are needed. Folks who have been holding back because of the uncertainty generated by some of the disinformation and press antics by the fruits and nuts need not worry. There are competent people in charge of the inner ring. My laptop's ability to mesh with wifi has gone by the wayside as I wasn't able to get on the Net at the Columbus and Atlanta airports. Now, having reported in, I'm going to get something to eat and then crash.

Sorry, no posts today. PS: Believe none of the damn disinformation that's been circulating about the "Feds strike back."

Outta time. Barely could get the comments released and I answered no emails either. Have to get to the airport in PS: Believe none of the damn disinformation that's been circulating about the "Feds strike back." time for TSA to fondle me, the perverts. Will take my computer and if they'll let me carry it on, I'll update as I can between flights. It looks like half my email is such crap and as far as I know there's not a bit of truth to it.
