(This shows why Harry Reid should retire he is an idiot,( however reelected by massive voter fraud)Harry is mentaly unstable as HIS thugs BLM, are attacking USA citizens with a Fed Army? They wont even protect our southern boarders with guns, they forced the dead border patrol to carry non lethal been bag rounds and were murdered for it, Now harry wants to use a Fed Army against a person who has disputes of land issues and extoritonist fees, or is it because the China Nevada/Reid family actually do have a 5 billion deal in the works that Bundy is not allowing to happen? Perfect example of Good being called evil and Evil being called good, BLM are the Domestic Terrorist. The Sheriff has the authority to impound why did they not let him do it, why bring a small 200+ man army / snipers to collect on a debt? that is terror mr. harry... used against a old rancher and his kids.)
Harry Reid Labels Supporters of Rancher Cliven Bundy ‘Domestic Terrorists’, Reveals Federal Task Force Being Assembled
Speaking at a Las Vegas Review-Journal event, Reid was clear: “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists. I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”
The rhetoric certainly will do nothing to ease already-high tensions after the Bureau of Land Management prematurely shut down its operation to round up Bundy’s “trespass cattle” on Saturday. The federal agency cited fears of public safety after having run-ins with armed militia members who traveled to Bunkerville, Nev., to support the rancher.
Bundy reportedly owes the federal government roughly $1 million in grazing fees, an amount he accumulated after he “fired” the Bureau of Land Management in 1993 over its decision to turn public land into a protective habitat for the state’s desert tortoise.
There are two court orders that permit BLM to execute a roundup of 500 to 900 of Bundy’s “trespass cattle,” Reid reportedly said.
Reid, who recently said the situation is “not over,” revealed on Thursday there is a federal task force being assembled to handle to the tense situation.
“Clive Bundy does not recognize the United States,” Reid said. “The United States, he says, is a foreign government. He doesn’t pay his taxes. He doesn’t pay his fees. And he doesn’t follow the law. He continues to thumb his nose at authority.”
“It is an issue we cannot let go, just walk away from,” he added.
