Harry Reid issues threat to Bundy Family … Greg Abbott tells the BLM, “This is Texas land. It belongs to Texas and the private property owners here,”

Liberals scoff at armed government agencies raiding the properties and homes of American families and confiscating private lands. They’re minds cannot process the idea that things such as tyranny is an incrementally administered goal, especially in a  nation such as America. Freedoms and liberties have to be done away with a little at a time. Public attitudes have to be conditioned to be willing to give up liberties and rights via catastrophic events, whether real or perceived. Now that we’ve been “softened up,” so to speak, the federal government has become much more brazen under team Obama. Obama and company successfully use “racism” to keep from being prosecuted for the multitude of unconstitutional acts Barack commits daily. No one wants to call Barack or Eric Holder out on the lawless acts they do for fear of being called “racist.” Example:  When Holder was called into question about his blatant stonewalling by Rep. Louie…

Canada surpasses USA to lead the world in median income after taxes

From the radically leftist New York Times , of all places.

Excerpt:

The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction.

While the wealthiest Americans are outpacing many of their global peers, a New York Times analysis shows that across the lower- and middle-income tiers, citizens of other advanced countries have received considerably larger raises over the last three decades.

After-tax middle-class incomes in Canada — substantially behind in 2000 — now appear to be higher than in the United States. The poor in much of Europe earn more than poor Americans.

The numbers, based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, offer some of the most detailed publicly available comparisons for different income groups in different countries over time. They suggest that most American families are paying a steep price for high and rising income inequality.

Although economic growth in the United States continues to be…

Hillary had not one tangible achievement as Secretary of State

Originally posted on Cry and Howl:

Forgive me folks, but I’m laughing my a$$ off right now! A few days ago I had posted Barack’s Lying and Hillary’s Corruption … UPDATED. In part of that piece I mentioned the lack of any accomplishments or achievements Hillary Clinton could claim as Secretary of State. Naturally some liberals took that offensively and the Daily Kos “debunked” my post listing Hillary’s greatest accomplishment …  Hillary stayed with Bill when he got busted cheating on her (again) with Monica! Huh???  Oookayyy.  Morons!  Well, it’s been a couple of weeks since Hillary was questioned about her achievements as Secretary of State in which she drew a blank. In all that time, still, no one can think of anything …

Texas AG to Feds: ‘Come And Take’ Disputed Land

Originally posted on Flyover-Press.com:

“The BLMs newly asserted claims to land along the Red River threaten to upset long-settled private property rights and undermine fundamental principles — including the rule of law — that form the foundation of our democracy. Yet, the BLM has failed to disclose either its full intentions or the legal justification for its proposed actions. Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box.”

Calling all Texians. Those bastards do not realize who they are messing with. — jtl, 419

By Jason Devaney via NewsMax

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has a message for the Bureau of Land Management about disputed land along the Oklahoma-Texas border: “Come and take it.”

Abbott was referring to a potential land grab of 90,000 acres that belong to Texas residents. According to Breitbart Texas, the federal government is considering taking the land, which stretches 116 miles along…

Western States Want Feds to Surrender “Federal” Land

Western States Want Feds to Surrender “Federal” Land

Elected officials from across the American West, from top lawmakers to county commissioners, held a historic gathering in Utah in recent days to discuss how Western states could wrest control of the almost 50 percent of land in the region currently claimed by the federal government. Aside from constitutional concerns — with a few exceptions, the U.S. Constitution does not authorize ownership or control over land by the political class in Washington, D.C. — the Western leaders and legislators cited economic harm, environmental degradation, loss of tax revenue, and numerous other reasons for the effort.

Meeting at the Utah Capitol late last week for the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands were more than 50 elected officials from nine Western states: Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana. Multiple state House speakers were in attendance…

AMERICA’S NEWEST HERO: MEET THE REAL CLIVEN BUNDY

Originally posted on Flyover-Press.com:

Cliven Bundy doesn’t normally do interviews on Sundays. But this Easter Sunday, the 67-year-old Nevada cattle rancher stepped out of his church, leaned up against the side wall and talked to America about what really matters to him deep down, revealing a side to him not normally seen in media interviews.

The first order of business, of course, was the Nevada standoff that has mesmerized the nation, and his response to Sen. Harry Reid’s incendiary accusation that the Bundy side are a bunch of “domestic terrorists.”

“The thing about what Harry Reid’s saying,” the rancher told radio talker Dianne Linderman on Talk Radio Network’s nationally syndicated “Everything That Matters” show, is that “he seems to be a warmonger, saying let’s have civil war!”

In fact, Bundy said, “We people are not gonna put…

Nevada Standoff a Symptom of Increasing Authoritarianism

The protests seem to have worked, at least for now, as the government appears to have backed off from direct confrontation. Sadly, some elected officials have inflamed the situation by labeling the Bundys and their supporters “domestic terrorists,” thus justifying any future use of force by the government. That means there is always the possibility of another deadly Waco-style raid on the…

“They have been overgrazing and damaging the land for years,”  asserted BLM spokesman Mike Brown, who also pointed out that the family – the last holdouts in the region – had been fined millions of dollars for trespassing on public land. In defiance of federal judicial rulings and the “consensus” of their representatives, the family persisted in claiming that they had a right to graze cattle on land their ancestors had settled many decades ago. The dispute had been going on for decades…

Dr. Ben Carson: “Bundy Case Gives Us A Brief Glimpse of The Totalitarian Regime That Awaits a Sleeping Populace”

Originally posted on Nice Deb:

In an article in The American Thinker,Dr. Ben Carson,  the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, pointed out that the Bundy case in Nevada provided “many insights into the state of our nation with respect to the relationship between the people and the government.” Specifically, he said the massive show of federal force in what is essentially a civil, legal dispute is “frightening because it gives us a brief glimpse of the totalitarian regime that awaits a sleeping populace….”

The Bundys appear to be honorable American citizens without adequate legal counsel to help resolve a federal land issue about which they disagree with the Bureau of Land Management. Without question, they violated some of the innumerable laws and regulations that continue to entangle every aspect of American life.

Their violations could certainly have been handled through a multitude of less brutal means than those employed by…
