Although tyranny, because it needs no consent, may successfully rule over foreign peoples, it can stay in power only if destroys first of all the national institution of its own people. – Hannah Arendt
The mass murder committed by the regimes of Stalin, Mao, Hitler and many others was made possible not just by the willingness of the “enforcers” to carry out their orders, but also by their victims’ imagined obligation to obey “authority,” and by the belief held by almost all onlookers that they should not interfere with the “the law” being carried out. – Larkin Rose, The Most Dangerous Superstition
The Southern Poverty Law Center recently wrote an article published in their “Hatewatch” blog entitled “Antigovernment ‘Patriots’ Gather Near Scene of Nevada Rancher’s Dispute Over Cattle Grazing Rights“. The article is characteristic of this organization which makes a living by agitating situations with disinformation – attempting to foster hate for profit.
In the article, the SPLC attempts to associate Cliven Bundy, his family and supporters with anti-government freeloaders ‘illegally’ grazing cattle on government property. Instead of analyzing the information from the perspective of objectivity, the SPLC immediately begins with factually false agenda positioning accusations – identifying the article as a polarizing hit-piece against Americans supporting the Constitution, Common Law Property Rights and States Rights.
The Bundy family and Patriarch Cliven Bundy have recently been the focus of an aggressive attack by elements of the Federal Government of the United States under the direction of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
Using fear, intimidation, and public policy as color of law, the BLM has been attempting to coerce the Bundy family into a willful ceding of the families’ rights to use public land for grazing and watering of their livestock. The Bureau of Land Management, listed at manta.com as a privately held company incorporated in Washington DC in 1946, built a heavily fortified position (a firebase of foreign occupation) in the Nevada public lands, near the land used by the Bundy family, for purposes of forcibly enjoining the use of the land.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, carrying water for the Federal Government, accused the Bundy family and supporters of “threatening to open up a “range war” with the federal government if they rounded up the cattle he had illegally grazing on public lands.” Note also the SPLC, apparently not very knowledgeable about law, claimed the cattle were illegally grazing on the public lands.
Saying the cattle were illegally grazing is not a statement backed up in the article by the SPLC, except by casual reference to the Federal Government’s position. The Federal Government claims Bundy could continue to graze his cattle on the ‘public’ lands if he paid Federal Government fees.
The Law regarding long-standing property rights based in Adverse Possession and Prior Appropriation of Water Rights, and other common law precedences for Bundy’s claimed rights, do not simply vanish because the Federal Government creates a fee schedule and other pretended Color of Law via unconstitutional corporate regulations and public policy.
The article claimed Bundy was going to start a range war, but it was the BLM showing up with 200 men, most armed to the teeth, including tasers and guns with positions covered by snipers, who threatened war.
The BLM roared into the Nevada countryside with fleets of new 4-wheel drive pickups and SUVs pulling trailers of 4 wheelers and side-by-sides and tractor trailers equipped with cattle trailers to carry off the Bundy cattle.
The BLM threatened war with real bloodshed against mostly unarmed peaceful protesters and property owners of Bunkerville Nevada. The BLM, operating as an occupying army, quickly created a firebase and then set about putting up signs telling protesters, and those taking pictures, that the Constitution did not apply in their “Federal Zone”. With egregious arrogance and mocking notice to the Constitution, the “FEDS” put up notice saying a small area would be designated as a “First Amendment Area”, a place where people could speak freely and take pictures.
Constitution In Force in Washington DC and Federal Territories
Nothing about the Federal Government’s activities at the Bundy ranch was consistent with the Constitution.
The Constitution and all laws of the United States which are not locally inapplicable shall have the same force and effect within all the organized Territories, and in every Territory hereafter organized as elsewhere within the United States. [R.S., Sec. 1891, 18 Stat. 325, 333]
The Constitution applies in the Federal Zones equally as it does in the States.
The show of force including equipment and armed personnel fielded by the BLM was enough to face a Battalion of armed and tactical soldiers in a hot war; millions of Federal Reserve Notes undoubtedly wasted on this hyperbolic display.
The SPLC quick to refer to the BLM as ‘authorities’, labeled the Bundy family and supporters as ‘Anti-government’ patriots, a derogatory word redefined by subversive pseudo-intellectual organizations, like the SPLC, as part of a psy-op to lump people opposed to a tyrannical takeover of America together as government and rule of law hating terrorists.
The SPLC has a page, noted below, where they created a definition for the so-called ‘patriot’. The definition is in fact a small pamphlet associating patriots with a word-salad of negative connotations, for example: a patriot is someone belonging to a patriot group, “groundless conspiracy theorizing” people who “adhere to extreme antigovernment doctrines” including belonging to militias, ‘“common-law” courts, publishers, ministries and citizens’ groups.’
The SPLC’s description of a patriot is so silly, cliche and juvenile, it would be laughable except the SPLC is taken serious by many non thinking Americans. The SPLC pamphlet on ‘Patriots” is outlandish propaganda, mixed with fear loaded expressions and previously demonized words such as ‘militia‘ and is therefore useless and devoid of any actual information.
Patriotic Patriots “Vigorously Support” America
The problem for the SPLC and others attempting to redefine reality through deception is the word PATRIOT has its own meaning with historical connotation – The history of the word Patriot begins with the word compatriot from the 1590s:
A person born, residing, or holding citizenship in the same country as another.
The word patriot being a derivative of compatriot, followed with a definition that is connected to the original word: a1600s definition of patriot :
loyal and disinterested supporter of one’s country
of one’s own country
Modern dictionaries such as the Oxford Online Dictionary define Patriot:
A person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.
1828 Webster’s Dictionary Definition:
A person who loves his country, and zealously supports and defends it and its interests.
It is worth noting modern dictionaries are subtly redefining patriot, like this definition in the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, containing a secondary definition called “Full Definition” :
One who loves his or her country and supports its authority and interests
The idea a patriot supports a country’s “authority” is not part of older definitions, but seems to be a redefining of the word consistent with the outright bastardizing of the word as it is used in the acronym ‘PATRIOT’ in the so-called ‘patriot act’.
The clear and deliberate message given by the SPLC regarding “A person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors” is real patriots are to be considered dangerous terrorists and they are to be treated as hostile and against the Government of the United States.
The logical conclusion then to be derived from the deliberate political mashup of patriot and terrorist, is the Federal Government of the United States and its defenders and supporters and propagandists, such as the SPLC, are not organically consistent with America and are inimical to the Constitutional government created by the States after the revolutionary war. The message seems to be that the Federal Government is, in fact, a foreign occupying force – hostile to fundamental and founding principles and the Supreme Law of the Union of States.
Pro Constitutional Government Patriots
The article published by the SPLC names the Bundy family and supporters as Anti-Government, but it is clear the Bundys are exceptionally pro Government, with the stipulation the government is the Constitutional Government of the United States.
The Bundys appealed to the principal and “lawful Chief Executive Officer and highest Peace Officer of the entire County”, the Sheriff, for help in protecting his property and rights from an invading, foreign and hostile, militarized agent of a Constitution violating Federal Government.
The Bundys appealed to the same Sheriff for protection from the physical abuse and assault of the Bureau of Land Management. The Bundys also appealed to the highest political office in the Sovereign State of Nevada for protection under the Law of Nevada and Constitution for the United States; unfortunately no help was directly given to the Bundys as they faced a hostile foreign occupational militarized group.
The SPLC takes it for granted that most readers are not concerned with the actual details of the situation in Nevada and most readers are not familiar with Constitution and lawful conduct of the parties involved versus pretended corporate policy and Color of Law deception applied with impunity by the so-called agency of the Federal Government, the BLM.
It is also to the complete discredit of the SPLC to associate Law abiding and historically Law supporting citizens of the State of Nevada, like the Bundys, with fabricated fear-mongering propaganda regarding the nature of those that do support the Supreme Law of the Land and those that do UNDERSTAND the Law of the land.
To put the article about the Bundys in a blog called ‘hatewatch’ can only imply the SPLC is a hate fostering organization profiting from the economic potential created when fabricated bipolar division is purposefully manufactured giving rise to unnatural hate then peddled for profit.
The Bundy case is not about a group of people hating the government (a childish idea formulated and floated by the SPLC ) but is in fact about the LAW, something the SPLC apparently does not comprehend.
The Common Law principles of property rights gained through use and access is an ancient idea and can be found in the principles of “Adverse Possession” and use-based water rights, found in the Law of Prior Appropriation and other long-standing Law evolving over hundreds of years.
The Bundys were well aware of the Law and had been using the property for generations lawfully and legally.
Limited and Explicit Powers Granted to Federal Government by Constitution
The case of the Bundy Ranch brings up even bigger Constitutional issues regarding the
Federal Government Authority to claim ownership of enormous tracts of land.
Article 1, section 7 of the Constitution states the Federal Government can purchase land with “the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings.”
In the State of Nevada, the Federal Government owns more than 85% of the State property. It would be hard to generate a Constitutional argument for the Federal Government’s authority to own grassland and hundreds of thousands acres of prime farmland and nearly all the useful land in the State of Nevada.
It’s time the Federal Government gives up all of its undeveloped and non-defense required farmland, forests, badlands, beaches, including the enormous National Parks now being used for purposes of United Nations and Agenda 21.
It is also time for Sheriffs and State Governments to throw out Federal Government Agencies intimidating and usurping Constitutional powers within the State. The Citizen, and then the States, are Sovereigns in America and the Federal Government was a bureaucracy with severely limited and well documented powers, created by ‘We The People’ and the States for limited responsibilities in service to the People and States.
The Federal Government must be taken back and unconstitutional abstractions such as Federal agencies with delegated congressional power must be rescinded. Federal Agencies do not have authority under the Constitution; congressional responsibilities were not to be delegated.
There is also no Constitutional authority for the Federal Reserve, a private banking cartel responsible for creating credit and currency for the Organic United States Treasury.
If Americans do not stand up to the domestic armies being created by the Federal Government, history shows these armies will be used against the people with only misery and bloodshed as a result.
Using the fictional responsibility delegating corporations, the Federal Government has grown a powerful and deceptive mechanism for creating unconstitutional, Color of Law, bureaucracies being used to take tyrannical control of America. This system of agencies and National Security Agencies and Home Land Security agencies are usurping the power of the States and the Individual. These agencies are rogue and are building enormous private armies within their own structures. These armies will soon be set against all Americans just like the test case in Nevada against the Bundys.
The deep state refers to a parallel secret government, organized by the intelligence and security apparatus, financed by drugs, and engaging in illicit violence, to protect the status and interests of the military against threats from intellectuals, religious groups, and occasionally the constitutional government. – Professor Peter Dale Scott
I applaud and support the efforts of the Bundys and those supporting the family and the Constitution at Bunkerville Nevada.
