The first major battle of the American Revolution took place and Bunker Hill while the first victory for the restoration of our liberty took place on Saturday, April 12 near the town of Bunkerville, Nevada.
The Bureau of Land Management and over 200 hundred heavily armed agents invaded the land which the Bundy Family has possessed since 1877.
With the assistance of high paid cattle thieves hired by our government, they rounded up approximately half of the Bundy herd of 1000 cows.
Many of the stolen livestock was loaded into cattle cars and shipped to California where the stolen beef was to be auction off to the highest bidder.
At 9:00 on Saturday morning the Cliven Bundy met with the Clark County Sheriff and demanded in from of a crowd of over 1,000 that sheriff take actions against Federal occupation. The Sheriff reluctantly announced that he would comply Mr. Bundy's demand. He also gave the sheriff one hour to round up the weapons possess by the over 200 Federal Agents to to bring them to a location of the rally.
An army of 65 mounted cowboys hoisting American Flags could be seen overlooking the over 1000 spectators. When Sheriff Gillespie failed to respond to Bundy's demands, he issued a request to the assemble patriots to join him and his family in an effort demand that the BLM release the cattle and allow them to return to their home on the banks of the Virgin River.
Within moments hundreds of American Patriots rallied behind the Bundy's and went to confront the foreign invaders.
I was among the first to arrive at the scene of the confrontation. Across the fence I could see that those among us that were armed were in the cross hairs of snipers, An agent of the BLM informed us that we were participating in an illegal assembly and warned us that if we did not back off we would be subject to arrest and incarceration.
We did not back down and we demand that they let the cattle go and that we were prepared to stand our ground the BLM and their 80 vehicles and their over 200 Gestapo agents release the cattle and vacate the land that is rightfully owned by the people of Nevada.
The Federal Governments is not just. The seek to control the people through intimidation. They know that when the people fear the government, they can do whatever they want without being held accountable. Several hundred patriots took on the Federal Government, and the efforts of a courageous minority recorded what I hope will be the first victory in our effort to restore liberty to a land that once was free.
