America's newest hero: Meet the real Cliven Bundy



America's newest hero: Meet the real Cliven Bundy

Calling Reid a 'warmonger,' Nevada rancher reveals why he's unafraid of feds
By Sarah Kupelian
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 up with that no more. We’re not gonna have them guns pointin’ at us anymore. Not when we’re talking about an army of ‘We the People’ against ‘We the People.’ We can’t allow that to happen in America. That’s civil war!”

Bundy confirmed that he and the ranchers and others standing with him, tired of being abused by a government with unlimited power, are ultimately willing to die for their stance. But, he added, “I do respect the United States government. I pledge allegiance to that flag and honor it very much. But [the government] has its place. It doesn’t have its place in the state of Nevada and … Clark County, and that’s where my ranch is. The federal government has no power and no ownership of this land, and they don’t want to accept that.”

Then, maybe because it was Easter Sunday, the interview went in a very different direction.

Asked by Linderman what makes him so unafraid in his current situation, Bundy replied:

“I don’t stand alone. I have all of the prayers from lots of people around the world, and I feel those prayers. And those prayers take the tremble out of my legs. And I can stand strong and straight. And you know the spirit from our heavenly Father, I seek that every morning on my knees. And he gives me some guidance, and I go forth and I actually feel good. My health is good, my spirit is good and I feel strength. I do, I feel strength, I feel even happiness. And I have no idea where I’m going with this. It’s a day-by-day spiritual thing for me.”

Toward the end of the interview, Linderman asked, “One more question: Is there anything you’d like to say to the American people? Because I truly believe you’re a patriot.”

“You know,” replied Bundy, “I woke up, I got out of my house, went down to my trail and watched the sun come up over the hills and the mountains here. And, of course, I thought of Jesus. And then the thought that I thought was that we the people of America, not only of America but of the whole world, what Jesus would want us to do, was forgive. Forgive our enemies, and He’ll take care of all the rest. So my message to the world today is: Forgive your neighbors, forgive your wives, forgive your husbands and children, and feel the love of Jesus. That’s what He suffered for.

“I thank the people for their prayers and, again, I put my faith in my heavenly father and … we’re OK.”

Bundy’s wife, Carol, expressed the same faith to this writer when booking the radio interview: “This is the Lord’s battle,” she said. “He is calling the shots, and we are just standing here.”

Jimmy Carter Warns Climate Change Will Cause 'Increasing Violence,' War



Jimmy Carter Warns Climate Change Will Cause 'Increasing Violence,' War

from AFP 22 Apr 2014, 1:35 PM PDT
Former US president Jimmy Carter on Tuesday urged his country and China, two of the world's biggest fossil fuel polluters, to take the lead on halting climate change.

If the two economic and political giants could agree on a way forward, the rest of the world would likely follow their lead, the statesman told AFP on the sidelines of a climate change discussion with students at the Paris Institute of Political Science.

"If we could put those two together as leaders of the Western world and the developing world and get them to agree on almost any formula for long-term and effective correction of the deterioration of the environment... I think the other countries would follow their leadership," Carter said.

He said he had encouraged Chinese President Xi Jinping along these lines, and has had discussions with US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Carter took part in the Paris meeting on Earth Day as a representative of The Elders, a grouping of global leaders brought together by Nelson Mandela in 2007 to promote peace, justice and human rights.

He told the students that climate change threatened world peace.

"If we don't address the global warming issue, we are going to see rapidly increasing conflict around the world.

"As people grow more desperate for food, for clean air and water, there is going to be increasing violence within countries and between countries."

The next 18 months will be crucial to determine the success of efforts to halt global warming "or catastrophic failure", said the Nobel Peace laureate.

The UN seeks to hold warming to two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), at which scientists believe we can still avoid the worst effects of climate change.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will host heads of state and government in New York in September to "catalyse action" ahead of a meeting in Paris at the end of 2015 where the world's nations are due to sign a global climate pact.

The deal, which must come into operation by 2020, should outline emissions curb targets -- a controversial issue that has been the topic of years of often belligerent talks.

Negotiators will gather again in Lima, Peru in December to come up with an outline for the agreement.

Carter said he hoped "as many of the world's leaders as possible" will attend the September meeting with Ban.

"Everyone who is interested in the subject needs to marshall our efforts now to make sure we do not fail in Paris in 2015."

Carter described climate change as "the greatest challenge the human race has ever faced".

The most recent scientific assessment of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, released in phases over recent months, states that humankind still has a chance to limit warming to relatively safe levels, but warns of dire consequences if we don't.

Bundy Family Supporter: 'I Don't Think This Will End Well'



Bundy Family Supporter: 'I Don't Think This Will End Well'

by AWR Hawkins 22 Apr 2014, 10:30 AM PDT
Former NH Republican Party chair and current Tea Party leader Jack Kimball said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-NV) description of those supporting the Bundy family as "domestic terrorists" is indicative of a continuing face-off that will not "end well."

On April 17th, Fox News reported that Reid used the term "domestic terrorists" to describe those who rallied to support the Bundy family when the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) closed in.

The Examiner reported that Reid tried to bolster this allegation by pointing out that the Bundy family and their supporters were armed. Reid used the terms "sniper rifles," "assault weapons," and "automatic weapons" to describe their firearms.

According to the NH Journal, Kimball said he was "concerned" that the Senate Majority Leader would make such comments, and that the use of "domestic terrorism" portends a determination on Reid's part to keep the fight going.

But that does not mean Bundy supporters are backing down. In fact, Kimball stated that "his friend and fellow New Hampshire 9/12 movement activist Jerry DeLemus" said, "This is not over."

DeLemus added, "If someone points a gun at me, I'll definitely point my gun back."

U.S. Government has No Respect for any Life

BLM Confirms It Killed Six Of Bundy's Cattle

by Kerry Picket 21 Apr 2014        
The Bureau of Land Management is confirming it killed six cattle as part of its standoff against the Bundy Ranch in Bunkersville, NV.
“A total of six cattle died or were euthanized,” a BLM official told Breitbart News.
The official listed the dead livestock cataloged by the BLM explaining, “The Bundy branded bull that was euthanized posed a significant threat to employees during the gather. The Bundy branded cow ran into a fence panel injuring its spine and was euthanized.” The dead animals listed by the official were:
  • 1 Bundy branded bull was euthanized
  • 1 Bundy branded cow was euthanized
  • 1 unbranded bull was euthanized
  • 1 unbranded cow was euthanized
  • 1 unbranded bull died
  • 1 unbranded cow died
According to the BLM, the gather was based on recent court orders. “Most recently, in 2013, in two separate orders, the U.S. District Court of Nevada directed Mr. Bundy to remove his cattle within 45 days, and authorized the United States to impound his cattle,” said the official.
The Bundy Ranch Facebook page, run by Bundy’s daughter Bailey Bundy Logue, posted photos of dead cattle from a mass grave, which they say belong to the Bundy Ranch, a few days after the BLM impoundment and called the agency’s actions “unjust.” The Bundy Ranch claim the cows and bulls were either “run to death” or shot.
The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals weighed in on the situation as well telling Breitbart News in a statement, “These animals shouldn't be killed either by the government, or by the rancher who plans to send the cows off to slaughter. The best thing anyone can do to stop the suffering of animals is to go vegan.”
The Bundy family has refused to stop allowing their cattle to graze on federally-owned land, saying the federal government does not have any authority over them. The impasse led to a tense standoff last-week in which both federal agents and Bundy supporters had sniper rifles trained on each others. The government ultimately backed down, at least for now.

Intelligence Chief Clapper Bars Employees From Talking to Media



Intelligence Chief Clapper Bars Employees From Talking to Media

Monday, 21 Apr 2014 04:20 PM
By Joe Schaeffer
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has issued a directive barring intelligence workers from talking to the media, even about unclassified matters, without permission.

"Employees… must obtain authorization for contacts with the media" on intelligence-related matters, and "must also report… unplanned or unintentional contact with the media on covered matters," the directive states, the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy reported Monday in a blog post on its website.

The directive was issued March 20 and expresses its purpose as establishing "Intelligence Community (IC) policy on contact with the media to ensure a consistent approach for addressing media engagement across the IC and to mitigate risks of unauthorized disclosures of intelligence-related matters that may result from such contacts."

Although the new policy declares "the IC is committed to sharing information responsibly with the public via the media to further government openness and transparency," it goes on to detail all the circumstances in which intelligence workers are not allowed to speak to the media without first acquiring permission from superiors.

The directive "does not distinguish between classified and unclassified intelligence information" in determining what falls under the realm of "covered matters," Steven Aftergood, head of the Project on Government Secrecy for the FAS, reports.

The directive bluntly states that "no substantive information should be provided to the media regarding covered matters in the the case of unplanned or unintentional contacts. Authorization for a particular contact on covered matters does not constitute authorization for additional media engagement."

It also warns employees that "contacts with the media that involve support to projects such as books, television programs, documentaries, motion pictures, and similar works related to covered matters require consultation with the DNI ."

Aftergood notes that "the new Directive creates an anomalous situation in which routine interactions that are permissible between an intelligence employee and an ordinary member of the public are now to be prohibited if that member of the public qualifies as 'media.'

"So under most circumstances, an intelligence community employee is at liberty to discuss unclassified 'intelligence-related information' with his or her next-door neighbor. But if the neighbor happened to be a member of the media, then the contact would be prohibited altogether without prior authorization."

The Obama administration has been heavily criticized for its attempts to control information released to the media and the public. The Associated Press reported in October that Leonard Downie Jr., a former executive editor of The Washington Post, wrote an analysis that concluded, "in the Obama administration’s Washington, government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the media.

"The administration's war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive I've seen since the Nixon administration, when I was one of the editors involved in The Washington Post's investigation of Watergate," Downie wrote.

In January, New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson accused President Obama of operating "the most secretive White House" she has ever covered.

"I would say it is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering, and that includes — I spent 22 years of my career in Washington and covered presidents from President Reagan on up through now, and I was Washington bureau chief of the Times during George W. Bush's first term," Abramson told Al Jazeera in an interview.

Aftergood believes the new intelligence regulations are designed to secure total control of all intelligence information revealed to the media and citizenry.

"Essentially, the directive seeks to ensure that the only contacts that occur between intelligence community employees and the press are those that have been approved in advance. Henceforward, the only news about intelligence is to be authorized news," he wrote.

Tea Party Express Launches Ninth National Bus Tour



 
Tea Party Express Launches Ninth National Bus Tour
by Debra Heine 21 Apr 2014, 11:00 AM PDT
The nation's largest Tea Party political action committee, Tea Party Express,
 recently revved up for its ninth national bus tour, dubbed “Fighting for Liberty.” The tour began in Fort Myers, Florida on Saturday, April 19th and is heading west with stops in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.

The buses will then head north, rallying in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota.  The states were selected because of key battles for House and Senate seats.  The tour is starting in Florida where a hotly contested special election for a vacant House seat is being held.

The Tea Party Express rallies will include a number of prominent conservative commentators, entertainers and candidates seeking federal office. Announcements regarding speakers and entertainers will be released throughout the week.

At the stops in Kansas, Dr. Milton Wolf, will be a featured speaker. Dr. Wolf is campaigning against Republican incumbent Senator Pat Roberts.

Tea Party Express has endorsed Dr. Wolf because he shares their conservative philosophy on issues like "out of control spending, higher taxes and the intrusiveness of government, including ObamaCare."

In a statement on the Tea Party Express website, Executive Director Taylor Budowich said the team is excited to get back out on the road in support of that conservative message of fiscal responsibility, economic growth and limited government.

"2014 will be the year we rip the gavel out of Harry Reid’s hand and stop the destructive policies of President Barack Obama’s Administration, Budowich said.

“We will do that by rallying and engaging conservative Americans from across the country on issues that are important to us all.  While we appreciate the major advertising being done by many different political action committees, our their focus is on rallying grassroots conservatives to become more involved in the political process," Budowich concluded.
