Adam Kokesh interviews Pete Santilli live from the Bundy Ranch were the Federal Bureau of Land Management are stealing the private property of a local Nevada ranching family with the help of paid mercenaries.
Using the precedent of a 2013 court order the BLM has been charged by big government with removing Bundy cattle from a 150 acre grazing area because of a rare and endangered desert tortoise that inhabits the land.
“It’s high time for the BLM to do its job and give the endangered desert tortoises and the Gold Butte area the protection they need and are legally entitled to,” senior Center for Biological Diversity scientist Rob Mrowka told the Mesquite Local News. “As the tortoises emerge from their winter sleep, they are finding their much-needed food consumed by cattle.”
Never mind that reports are now emerging that the BLM is guilty of killing hundreds of the endangered desert tortoises themselves, a charge that Santilli says he is personally privy to in the interview, stating the tortoises are being euthanized because they cannot be maintained effectively by the government.
Santilli sheds light on the particulars of the situation in this BOMBSHELL report from the field weighing all options and strategies regarding the removal of the federal usurpers.
One option was to have the local Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie assert his constitutional authority and start arresting Bureau of Land Management agents on charges of trespassing and theft.
As Santelli relates however, a conversation with the infamous Sheriff Mack, shed light on the allegiances of Sheriff Gillespie. “He is a liberal that cares more about the trinkets and badges he receives from government than standing up of the rights of his people.”
Sheriff Mack tours the country educating local sheriffs and law enforcement on their jurisdictional constitutional authority.
Listen to the excellent and eyeopening report:
Update: Reports are now coming in stating that Ammon Bundy, son of Cliven Bundy, told Infowars reporter David Knight today that around 20 cowboys went on land claimed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and retrieved cattle.
“We gathered about 30 head,” said Bundy. “We did have a small confrontation with them, but they didn’t have the forces to do a whole lot. They couldn’t mobilize fast enough and we were able to gather those cattle and get them to the ranch”
During that confrontation, Ammon Bundy, was reportedly tasered. His sister, a cancer victim, and a pregnant woman were assaulted by BLM agents.
Protesters chanted “no BLM” as the standoff came to an end. BLM agents began to leave while being yelled at to “get out of here!”
The tactic appears to be part of the “Range War” Cliven Bundy alluded to waging on the BLM earlier in the feud.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that two militia members from Montana and one from Utah have arrived at Cliven Bundy’s ranch and were assisting in the cattle reclamation.
“We need to be the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants,” Ryan Payne of the West Mountain Rangers told the Review-Journal. “Expect to see a band of soldiers.”
Payne said that militias from New Hampshire, Texas and Florida are likely to join and stand with the Bundy family and stay at his ranch.
“They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” Payne told the Review-Journal, adding that hundreds of militia members are expected.
Lawmakers from the area have voiced opposition to the government actions. Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen. Dean Heller have condemned the BLM for what they characterize as heavy-handed actions involving Bundy and other Silver State residents.
“No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans,” Sandoval, a Republican, said. “The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”
Heller, also a Republican, said he told BLM Director Neil Kornze the situation is being handled poorly. “I told him very clearly that law-abiding Nevadans must not be penalized by an over-reaching BLM,” Heller said.

It will be interesting to see how the situation plays out in the coming days and the precedent it sets for Americans everywhere. Stay tuned to Appalachian Area News for future updates.
