Militia members flocked to Nevada to support Bundy in his fight with the government over his refusal to pay fees for his cattle to graze on federal land.
“I urge you to investigate these reports and to work with local leaders to ensure that their concerns are addressed in a manner that allows the community to move forward without incident,” Horsford wrote to Gillespie.
The letter also says militiamen have a presence on state and local roads as well as federal highways. In some areas, according to the letter, militiamen have set up checkpoints where drivers are stopped and asked to provide a proof of residency.
They’ve been seen carrying high-caliber weapons and keep a round-the-clock security detail on Bundy.
Many of the militiamen, attracted by Bundy’s views on state’s rights and public lands, traveled from across the country to support him in his stand against the Bureau of Land Management.
Bundy owes the BLM $1 million in grazing fees. Earlier this month, the agency called off a roundup of Bundy’s cattle after escalating tensions between federal agents and militia members.
This reporter needs to get with the program since the Bundy’s have paid the fees already…
“I consider Nevada a sovereign state with its own law and rights, which I abide by in full,” he said, adding he would have no issues paying a grazing fee to the proper authority of Clark County, Nev., which he has done. Bundy said he has submitted payment to the county. After cashing the check, the county tried to return it but Bundy did not accept the return and the county has the funds in their account as of today.” see: In their own words: Bundy family addresses unanswered questions

Harry Reid: “Something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting cattle graze on “federal land”. They’re circulating the wagon with big time projection since it was Harry Reid who made the threat to Cliven Bundy.
We’re going to see lots of this stuff assisted by the Corporate Media which is owned by the Oligarchs who want the land for water/minerals. Their objective is; to own the water, food, electricity…in order to make us totally dependent. Control!
