UPDATE # 3
Epic confrontation “like something out of a movie”
In an epic standoff that Infowars reporter David Knight described as being like “something out of a movie,” supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy advanced on a position held by BLM agents despite threats that they would be shot at, eventually forcing BLM feds to release 100 cattle that had been stolen from Bundy as part of a land grab dispute that threatened to escalate into a Waco-style confrontation.

Despite the fact that Bureau of Land Management officials agreed to cease their operation to seize Bundy’s cattle after a massive public backlash, Bundy demanded that Sheriff Douglas Gillespie disarm BLM officials and return his stolen cows. When this didn’t happen, hundreds of Bundy supporters, including cowboys on horseback, descended on a nearby cattle pen outside of Mesquite where the seized cows were being held. In a tense standoff, armed BLM feds, backed up by at least one SWAT team, threatened to shoot at Bundy supporters if they marched any closer to a line of vehicles. Infowars reporter David Knight, who was at the head of the march, described the scene as like the moment from V For Vendetta when the military is forced to stand down.

Sheriff Gillespie eventually appeared to inform Bundy supporters that the BLM had finally caved and agreed to release the 100 cattle they had seized that were inside the pen…..
Below is an earlier report of the moment that Feds threatened to shoot the crowd if they failed to depart. BULLIES!
Pursuant to reports 100 cattle were finally released.
Harry Reid, BLM, EEN Energy cannot be trusted. Reid has to go and the Obama administration must not be allowed to give away our internet.
The American people must hear of this week, of this day and what has taken place.
At the same time, be weary.
How many other localities are there in the United States where Americans are losing their property, farmland to special interests? We need to hear of this and we need to be darned vocal about it.
UPDATE 2: Sheriff’s earlier announcement of cease of operations and release of cattle.

We shall see where this goes.
In the meantime,
“We’d like to dedicate that ridge to our fallen military who lost their lives for us…MIA/POW – you are not forgotten”. #BundyRanch
