Next WACO? Protestors Surge As Heavily Armed Feds Round Up Nevada Rancher’s Cattle

Heavily armed federal forces drop down in the Nevada desert surrounding Cliven Bundy’s family ranch over “grazing trespassing.” The Feds have rounded up the cattle belonging to the Bundy family, auctioning off the livestock stating Bundy is encroaching on Federal land.

This has the potential to become the next WACO as hundreds, if not thousands, of militia and citizens protesters may be showing up to support the Bundy family.

“Cliven Bundy – the “last rancher in Clark County, Nevada” – has since 1993 refused to pay fees to the federal government for the right to raise cattle on land his family has ranched since the 1870s, according to the Washington Free Beacon. Read the rest here.

There are reports of nighttime snipers pointing at the Bundy family.
Claims are surfacing that the armed Federal raid of the family’s cattle was ordered by two Nevada judges in effort to protect a dessert tortoise.
This is raising the question as to whether or not the Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie is failing to stand up for constitutional authority and ask the federal government to leave the Nevada family alone, or if 1993 law has precedence, and it is indeed the Bundy family that is encroaching on government property.
Bundy says his family has raised their cattle on this land for hundreds of years, and calls it a showdown between the federal government and US farmers.

“ The is the worst case scenario,” says Pete Santili, a former U.S. Marine who is reporting from this scene. “The worse thing than can happen is for BLM to outnumber the protestors. They have hundreds of people with guns, AR’s. They look like corporate mercenaries with BLM stickers on their badges. The worst thing that can happen is that the American public allows these goons to outnumber the protesters and that BLM will have free reign and win.”

Santili calls for the American public to join to assure that BLM stands down, and returns the cattle to the Bundy family.
