Nevada’s land grab drama continues to heat up. Many many agendas in play here, but I tend to see them all as variations on the theme of the struggle between “bottom up” and “top down” power. Who has the power? The Individual or the State. The Individual or the County. The County or the State. The State or the Fed. And then there’s rumors(?), facts(?) that energy companies want the land for fracking and/or the military industrial complex wants it for god knows what. Then there’s the militia, Blackwater mercenaries in BLM costumes(?) and Agenda 21, oathkeepers, etc. What’s real? Hard to say, except we do know that this multigenerational Mormon ranching family has been saying the same thing for over 20 years, and that they really do believe they are right, and that the timing of this show-down therefore seems either suspicious or perfectly aligned with April’s growing tension of the cardinal grand cross.
It’s crucial that we not let this drama devolve into violence. That would play right into the hands of “the authorities” who would then use the occasion to further the concretization of the police state.
BTW: notice how this story finally knocked Flight 370 off the front page?
I watched most of a fairly lengthy new infowars video interviewing Ammon Bundy (son of stubborn rancher Cliven Bundy) that had Alex Jones interjecting, in his usual fulminating style, a number of times and curiously, for once, his style seemed utterly congruent with the intensity of the issues in play here.
Oops! I can no longer find the article with that video inside it. Go to youtube, and punch in “Ammon Bundy infowars,” and you will see that interview, which has been broken up into a number of shorter ones; or just go to infowars. Huge numbers of articles on this developing drama that pits the still wild west against the forces that would tame it.
