http://lasvegas.cbslocal.com/2014/0...diers-militia-members-arrive-at-nevada-ranch/ This is a 20 year old dispute involving complicated issues of grazing rights on barren desert land. The federal government asserts the rancher has violated restrictions on using federal land and owes grazing fees. He claims ancestral rights to use the land. The problem is the Bureau of Land Management has resorted to heavy -handed gestapo tactics that are reminiscent of the tragedies at Waco and Ruby Ridge. Commenters posting to the above article pointed out the difference in the government's response to this incident and to the Benghazi attack, or closer to home, their studied indifference to widespread immigration law violations. It is not just the rancher's rights which are in jeopardy. To "protect" the agents and contractors, the federales have set up "Free speech" zones where citizens can protest. Protesting anywhere else will earn you an arrest and possibly a tasering and beating. The head of BLM is a former Harry Reid aide, so more may be involved here than the fate of desert turtles and cows. The government is determined to make an example of this rancher. Others see the incident as a frightening portent of what to expect when highly unpopular government programs are forced down our throats. We can assemble in a "Free Speech" zone to complain and be fingerprinted and photographed for later IRS examination. I was under the impression the entire country was a Free Speech zone, but apparently not any more.
