Ammon Bundy


Ammon Bundy talked with Megyn Kelly Monday about why he is in an armed standoff with the feds.

"The federal government does not have authority to come down into the states and to control its land," Bundy said.

When Kelly asked Bundy why he doesn't go through the courts, Bundy said, "The plaintiff is the federal government, yet the prosecutor is also the federal government...there is no proper redress."

He finished, "I'm not here to die. I'm here to defend my freedom and my liberties. Will I? Yes. But it's not going to come to that."

Watch the interview above and sound off below!

ca 1990A Maryland man was charged by the EPA for filling in a section of lowland on his property that swamped-up after heavy rain, rendering it useless for farming.  He did, however, dig a ditch on another section of his land that compensated; or so he thought.   After endless court appearances the man was fined a horrendous amount of money and sent to prison.  It was one of those stories where everyone said WTF?; emphasized with the man; felt he'd been wronged; but did nothing to help. 

I still feel guilty that I didn't do a damn thing to outwardly support him, but, you know
I had four kids, a tight budget, and  a sailing hobby that claimed all my free time.  I'd like to think, however, that had some organized citizen militia joined the farmer in his showdown with the gummint, that I would have showed up.  Today I would, because it's near-by. I'm radicalized, and have nothing really to lose.  So I can sit here urging Ammon Bundy on, but do nothing else because it's too far away. 

Awhile back I told my wife that if Texas seceded I'd go there, guns in hand, and fight with them.  She said, "no you wouldn't."

I'm in crisis.

It's hard to get support for a movement when the folks you are purportedly helping ask you to go away.

It’s clear that the goal is not to correct the situation in terms of “environmental” issues or “danger to species” or whatever “reason” is cited: sending a fella to jail and stealing his wealth accomplishes nothing to “save the newts.” If the “newts” were the real and genuine goal, having the fella restore the “newt biosphere” — even in a place more convenient to him — would be the end of the issue. But it’s not.

What these massive, ridiculous “punishments” do accomplish is to fill his neighbors with fear; fear of the .gov, fear of doing anything to improve their own property to suit their own needs -- fear of acting like they own their own property.

In short — fear that ”their” property is not really their own. They are simply renters [property tax] and must abide by the dictates of the “real” owners: the .gov.

Is that the actual goal? I dunno. But it's what happens.
