HOT FBI Launches Full Investigation Into Bundy Ranch Supporters

 Jay Syrmopoulos reports:
The FBI has launched a full investigation into “death threats, intimidation, and possible weapons violations,” relating to the standoff between the Bureau of Land Management and Bundy Ranch supporters, according to 8 News Now out of Las Vegas.

The first people to be interviewed by FBI agents were Metro Police and Sheriff Doug Gillispie.

According to News 8 Now, the Metro Police claim to have intervened to “protect the lives of federal employees from the 400 or so Bundy supports and armed militia members.”

Metro officers stated that they feared for their lives that day due to the assemblage of firepower that the protestors had gathered and because many of those assembled “pointed weapons at officers, taunted them and told them they should be ready to die.”

Assistant Sheriff Lombardo, who was put in charge of the Metro officers by Sheriff Doug Gillispie, stated that “The federal authorities are conducting an investigation and I am pretty confident it is going to go into the future,” adding that “”Yes, there is definitely going to be consequences, definitely. That is unacceptable behavior. If we let it go, it would continue into the future,” referring to anyone caught on videotape or in pictures pointing a gun at BLM officials or Metro officers.
I repeat, direct confrontation with a government that has more personnel and  arms than you have is very dangerous.



  1. Point a gun at me......

  2. If anyone thought this was over after Bundy decided against taking the state to court they're a fool. Again refer back to what happened to Adam Kokesh on how he got traded by simply loading a shotgun in public.

    Also I think the state would use this against them too

    BTW am I the only one who cant comment via Firefox and have to use internet explorer?

  3. "That is unacceptable behavior."

    On the contrary, it's the defining behavior of America's founding:

    The Federalist No. 46

    "But ambitious encroachments of the federal government, on the authority of the State governments, would not excite the opposition of a single State, or of a few States only. They would be signals of general alarm. Every government would espouse the common cause. A correspondence would be opened. Plans of resistance would be concerted. One spirit would animate and conduct the whole. The same combinations, in short, would result from an apprehension of the federal, as was produced by the dread of a foreign, yoke; and unless the projected innovations should be voluntarily renounced, the same appeal to a trial of force would be made in the one case as was made in the other.


    "Extravagant as the supposition is, let it however be made. Let a regular army, fully equal to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the federal government; still it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments, with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger.


    "Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. And it is not certain, that with this aid alone they would not be able to shake off their yokes."

  4. Their supposed superior muscle and firepower is just an illusion. Between all branches of the armed forces personnel, reservists, and police officers in this country, there are at the very most 4 million of them (it's more like 3 million, considering that only a small portion of the military are actual boots on the ground. Most are part of the support system). I would anticipate that if things got ugly, a good half of them would defect purely for ideological reasons. So 2 million of them. A conservative estimate of firearm owners in this country hovers around 100 million. There are 300 million firearms in this country. The asymmetry of power is not in the State's favor. 4GW proponents like to cite the power of the 3%. Worst case scenario, we match them in terms of numbers. Power over others has always been an illusion. From the time of kings until now. The French royalty found out the hard way what happens when you push people too far.

    For all those who cry chicken little with regards to the State's arsenal of drones, A-10 Warthogs, and Blackhawk helicopters, how long do you think it would take the general population to revolt against such tactics employed against their neighbors, family members, coworkers, and fellow citizen. There is something to be said for the ideals that are embodied in this Great American Experiment that is our country. They are generally found in individuals across the world, but last I checked, they have never been reflected in the history and character of a nation before.

    Now with regards to your overall point, yes, it is pretty stupid to be the tip of the spear against the state, and it will likely cost you your life. And if you're going to set up at the head of the spear, don't go giving your government name in tv interviews. The state is no match for us, and they know it. They flinched on that Bundy Ranch. Now they are bringing down the hammer in the hopes that the proles forget that. We were watching, and we saw them crack. Things won't change until it gets so bad that they have to, but I still have hope. If this Great American Experiment fails, there is nowhere else to go.

    1. And “We the People” repeat, direct confrontation with 300 million American citizens, who have the right to keep and bear arms, will be much more dangerous.

  5. And “We the People” repeat, direct confrontation with 300 million American citizens, who have the right to keep and bear arms, will be much more dangerous.

  6. And “We the People” repeat, direct confrontation with 300 million American citizens, who have the right to keep and bear arms, will be much more dangerous.
