Rancher Clive Bundy May Pursue Legal Action Against Feds

From Before It’s News.

On Thursday 24th April, 2014 at 1 pm PST an important Press Conference is set to be held at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada. Attorney Larry Klayman, will announce to the world what future action may be taken in the now infamous BLM standoff at the Bundy Ranch. All legal options are being explored, and every legal remedy available to the Bundy Family on behalf of We The American People are on the table.

……Larry Elliot Klayman (born July 20, 1951) is an American attorney and activist. He is known as the founder and former Chairman of Judicial Watch, a public interest and non-profit law firm, which initiated 18 civil lawsuits against the Clinton Administration, and later a lawsuit against Vice-President Dick Cheney in order to obtain information about the White House’s energy task force. Klayman formed the organization Freedom Watch to “protect civil liberties [and] rights of all persons, whatever their ethnicity, race, religion, sex or otherwise.” He says the name originated from an NBC episode of The West Wing in which he was caricatured as Harry Klaypool. Klayman wrote the books Fatal Neglect and Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment, and writes a weekly column for the conservative news website WorldNetDaily. During the Ronald Reagan administration, Klayman was a prosecutor in the Justice Department and was on the trial team that succeeded in breaking up the telephone monopoly of AT&T. Klayman is representing families of members of Navy SEAL Team 6, the elite special forces who killed Osama bin Laden, who died after their helicopter was shot down by the Taliban three months later. Klayman contends the Obama administration put the Navy SEALs at risk by disclosing their identity. In June 2013, Klayman sued the Obama Administration over the National Security Agency’s collection of phone records. A federal judge agreed with Klayman that the program is likely unconstitutional, but stayed an injunction that would stop it pending an appeal by the U.S. government.

Judicial Watch is a pro-Constitution legal powerhouse that serves as a thorn in the side of big government. They’ve filed suits against Eric Holder, ObamaCareMichael (Nanny) Bloomberg, and the IRS.

The Bundy’s have a very strong legal and moral case against the federal jack-boots.  If the feds are smart, they’ll back off and let the man live and work in peace.

Veterans Languish and Die on VA Hospital’s Secret Waiting List

Gawd only knows how long this has been going on.

From CNN.

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list.

The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources.

For six months, CNN has been reporting on extended delays in health care appointments suffered by veterans across the country and who died while waiting for appointments and care. But the new revelations about the Phoenix VA are perhaps the most disturbing and striking to come to light thus far.

Internal e-mails obtained by CNN show that top management at the VA hospital in Arizona knew about the practice and even defended it.

Dr. Sam Foote just retired after spending 24 years with the VA system in Phoenix. The veteran doctor told CNN in an exclusive interview that the Phoenix VA works off two lists for patient appointments:

There’s an “official” list that’s shared with officials in Washington and shows the VA has been providing timely appointments, which Foote calls a sham list. And then there’s the real list that’s hidden from outsiders, where wait times can last more than a year.

“The scheme was deliberately put in place to avoid the VA’s own internal rules,” said Foote in Phoenix. “They developed the secret waiting list,” said Foote, a respected local physician.

The VA requires its hospitals to provide care to patients in a timely manner, typically within 14 to 30 days, Foote said.

According to Foote, the elaborate scheme in Phoenix involved shredding evidence to hide the long list of veterans waiting for appointments and care. Officials at the VA, Foote says, instructed their staff to not actually make doctor’s appointments for veterans within the computer system.

Instead, Foote says, when a veteran comes in seeking an appointment, “they enter information into the computer and do a screen capture hard copy printout. They then do not save what was put into the computer so there’s no record that you were ever here,” he said.

According to Foote, the information was gathered on the secret electronic list and then the information that would show when veterans first began waiting for an appointment was actually destroyed.

“That hard copy, if you will, that has the patient demographic information is then taken and placed onto a secret electronic waiting list, and then the data that is on that paper is shredded,” Foote said.

“So the only record that you have ever been there requesting care was on that secret list,” he said. “And they wouldn’t take you off that secret list until you had an appointment time that was less than 14 days so it would give the appearance that they were improving greatly the waiting times, when in fact they were not.”

Foote estimates right now the number of veterans waiting on the “secret list” to see a primary care physician is somewhere between 1,400 and 1,600.

And here’s another problem, the chickenshit employees cared more for themselves than the dying veterans:

“I feel very sorry for the people who work at the Phoenix VA,” said Foote. “They’re all frustrated. They’re all upset. They all wish they could leave ’cause they know what they’re doing is wrong.

“But they have families, they have mortgages and if they speak out or say anything to anybody about it, they will be fired and they know that.”

That’s bullshit on stilts. All it takes is one anonymous whistle blower. Just one of those people could have collected the evidence and released it to the media anonymously without worrying bout their ‘families and mortgages’.  The fact that they were willing to allow veterans to languish and die rather than leak the information to the public, says a lot about their character. Personally, I wouldn’t want to work with people like that.  I wonder what they would have done if the patient in question were their own loved one.

Now, the question is, what’s going to be done about this?

Just wait until  the full effect of ObamaCare kicks in. Civilians will get a taste of what the VA has done to veterans for years.

Reinforcements for Rancher Clive Bundy, Reid Makes More Threats

American citizens are sick of the federal bullies.  Clive Bundy, the Nevada rancher who is standing up to the government’s land grab, is getting more support from citizen militias, GOP/Libertarian politicians, and people across the U.S.

Corrupt authoritarian Harry Reid is lobbing more threats:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land.

“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.”

Hopefully ‘something’ will happen to stop Harry Reid.

In the meantime,  Texas, another western state dominated by the federal control of public land, has  raised its own red flag about possible BLM land grabs:

Texas officials are raising alarm that the Bureau of Land Management, on the heels of its dust-up with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, might be eyeing a massive land grab in northern Texas.

The under-the-radar issue has caught the attention of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who fired off a letter on Tuesday to BLM Director Neil Kornze saying the agency “appears to be threatening” the private property rights of “hard-working Texans.”

……At issue are thousands of acres of land on the Texas side of the Red River, along the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Officials recently have raised concern that the BLM might be looking at claiming 90,000 acres of land as part of the public domain.

The agency, though, argues that any land in question was long ago determined to be public property.

……According to background materials put out by Texas Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry’s office, the BLM is revisiting its management plan for lands including those along a 116-mile stretch of the Red River. His office said the possibility has been discussed of opening that land up for “hunting, recreation and management.”

 

More:

Sid Miller, former Texas State Representative and Republican candidate for Texas Agriculture Commissioner, has since made the matter a campaign issue to Breitbart Texas.

“In Texas,” Miller says, “the BLM is attempting a repeat of an action taken over 30 years ago along the Red River when Tommy Henderson lost a federal lawsuit. The Bureau of Land Management took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.”

Miller referred to a 1986 case where the BLM attempted to seize some of Henderson’s land. Henderson sued the BLM and lost 140 acres that had been in his family for generations. Now the BLM is looking at using the prior case as a precedent to claim an additional 90,000 acres.

 

Adding insult to injury, the BLM thugs killed the cattle it rustled from Bundy’s ranch.

An article at Reason.com, points out that the battle between the western states and the federal government over land is about more than just Bundy’s rights:

The recent face-off between the Bundy family and its supporters on the one hand, and the Bureau of Land Management and its enablers on the other, is hardly the first word in the tussle between westerners and the federal government over control of land. The battle has probably been inevitable since western settlers ceded control of the lion’s share of the open spaces around them to distant Washington, D.C. in return for admission to the union. Now, those spaces aren’t quite so open, and their inhabitants are more assertive—and see themselves (often with good reason) as better stewards of their turf than distant officials who seem to pride themselves on inefficiency and lousy accounting practices.

……Utah State Rep. Ken Ivory (R-West Jordan) told Reason Foundation’s Leonard Gilroy:

“In the 2011 session—when we realized that over $5 billion of our state revenue comes from a federal government that’s broke—that’s when we started to flesh out how serious those numbers were. Something on the order of 40% of our state revenue comes from an unsustainable source in our federal governing partner. We looked at the magnitude of this risk and started to think about how we could broaden our revenue base and get to a point of economic self-reliance.”

Controlling the land and resources is a big step in that direction.

The “Legislative Summit on the Transfer of Public Lands,” gathering representatives from nine western states in Salt Lake City, was organized by Ivory and borrows its terminology from that Utah move, showing that concerns about reducing financial reliance on the feds and gaining local control are spreading. Planning for the conference predates the Bundy standoff and the gathering addresses broader issues—but it certainly got a nudge from headlines and tense video of federal agents facing off with locals over land use.

So, what started as a simmering problem over the control of land and resources has only been fueled by the growing prosperity and sophistication of westerners. They see little reason to leave their fate in the hands of a stumbling federal government that can’t balance its books.

It boils down to States’ rights versus an out-of-control, incompetent, criminally negligent federal government that seized control of vast amounts of land, for reasons that had little to do with the public good.

More observations from Dr. Ben Carson:

It is quite interesting to see, though, that the same bureaucrats refuse to enforce some of our federal border-protection laws and other domestic policies with which they disagree. Perhaps Mr. Reid’s time could be better spent explaining why it is acceptable for the federal government to pick and choose which laws it wishes to enforce.

The senator readily referred to the Bundys and their supporters as “domestic terrorists,” but the current administration is reticent about applying the same term to Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who admitted slaughtering more than a dozen people in 2009 at Fort Hood in Texas. What does this tell us about our government and its perceptions and alignments?

The massive show of federal force in the Bundy case is frightening because it gives us a brief glimpse of the totalitarian regime that awaits a sleeping populace that does not take seriously its voting responsibilities, and places in public office (and returns them to office) who do not represent traditional American values.

The fact that the ranchers were well armed and willing to literally fight for their rights probably tempered the enthusiasm of the federal forces to engage in further aggression. It was clear from the body language and some of the reported verbal responses of the government forces that they were not prepared to engage in lethal combat with fellow Americans.

Those Americans who are concerned about the possible future imposition of martial law after a financial collapse or some other event should take solace in knowing that many military and law enforcement personnel would likely refuse to obey commands inconsistent with freedom and American values. Such commands could emanate from any political party in the future, but it is likely that such a party would be one controlling an administration that selectively enforces laws and ignores or excuses corruption.

Another important lesson from this incident is the value of a well-armed citizenry. The Second Amendment was crafted by wise citizens who recognized how quickly an enemy invasion could occur or how our own government could be deceived into thinking it had the right to dominate the people.

Dr. Carson has more faith than I do when he asserts, “law enforcement personnel would likely refuse to obey commands inconsistent with freedom and American values.”  Law enforcement in this country is becoming increasingly militarized, and with the likes of Reid in office, I would not put it past him to issue an order to attack Bundy’s ranch as if it were Waco or Ruby Ridge.

Paging the DHS: Muslim Terrorist Groups Forming Political Party in U.S.

What. The. Fuck.?

 

From Before It’s News.

The First Islamist voting bloc? Muslim Brotherhood Launches Own U.S. Political Party. (Investors).

With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.

‘Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”

USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.

Well, they already have at least two; a Dhimmi in the White House and a radical muzzie congressman from Minnesota.

This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a “civilization jihad” against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and “destroying (it) from within.”

The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader’s home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11.

Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations — some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO.

Front and center is the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, the catalyst behind this Trojan horse jihadist political party.

CAIR is linked in federal criminal court documents to the terrorist group Hamas, the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. CAIR’s chief Awad, who announced the USCMO at the National Press Club, is so radioactive, the FBI refuses to do outreach with him and his so-called Muslim-rights group until it can “resolve whether there continues to be a connection between its executives and Hamas.”

Equally troubling is the Muslim American Society, another founding member of the USCMO. MAS was formed as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,” a 2007 Justice Department court filing states. A 2011 MAS press release praised Osama bin Laden as “a visionary who believed in an Islamic state in Afghanistan.”

The list of bad actors doesn’t end there. The chairman of America’s new Islamist party is none other than Oussama Jammal, who once headed the notorious Bridgeview Mosque in Chicago.

One of that mosque’s leaders was arrested and jailed for funneling millions to Hamas. And one of its most honored guests was bin Laden’s spiritual mentor, the late Palestinian cleric Abdullah Azzam. Some of Azzam’s relatives are Bridgeview members.

“The walls were covered with Hamas posters and recruiting literature showing masked gunmen brandishing automatic weapons. . . . You could see daggers plunged into Jewish hearts wrapped up in American flags,” said Steve Emerson, describing the mosque in his book “American Jihad.”

“They even had a library filled with terrorist videos.”

In 2009, it was reported that CAIR planted interns in D.C. offices. CAIR is a terrorist facilitator that engages in the promotion and funding of terrorist atrocities.   Why is it allowed to operate in this country?

The Muslim Brotherhood has a lengthy history of terrorism and is a serious threat to Western civilization.  Why are they in this country?

Their goals are well documented. It’s a matter of public record.  But Obama continues to shamefully pander to some of the worst muslim thugs on the planet. When Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano was head of the DHS, she made it a policy.

Since the USCMO has announced its theocracy-based entry into the political arena, the Dems will probably offer to make them part of their platform.  Matter of fact, during the 2012 Democratic convention, the scheduled homage to Islamic shitbags was removed only after public uproar. 

Muslims are diametrically opposed to everything America stands for, especially the Constitution. They want Sharia Law and Islam to dominate the West; America in particular:

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran . . . should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”

——CAIR Chairman Omar M. Ahmad to a crowd of California Muslims in July 1998

Every three-letter acronym security agency in the U.S. should be all over these hadjis like stink on shit.  Instead they’re targeting patriots  and outspoken Obama critics.

They’re not worried about an enemy that wants us all dead, they’re frightened of people who want them stopped. With assholes like this in charge who the hell needs Al Qaeda?

But remember, opponents of Islam are “Islamophobes”.
