A two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner’s cattle, according to the rancher’s family.

Cliven Bundy, the last rancher in Clark County, Nev., has been fighting a “one-man range war” since 1993, when he decided to take a stand against the agency, refusing to pay fees for the right to graze on a ranch run by his family for centuries.

After years of court battles, the BLM secured a federal court order to have Bundy’s “trespass cattle” forcibly removed with heavy artillery, the family said.

“The battle’s been going on for 20 years,” Bundy told the Washington Free Beacon. “What’s happened the last two weeks, the United States government, the bureaus are getting this army together and they’re going to get their job done and they’re going to prove two things. They’re going to prove they can do it, and they’re gonna prove that they have unlimited power, and that they control the policing power over this public land. That’s what they’re trying to prove.”

Bundy said the government has brought everything but tanks and rocket launchers.

      I am sure their ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES are supporting them.
      I am being sarcastic as we all know the so called ‘Representatives’ are concerned with their own pockets…
      This guy must not have donated much to his ‘Senators’.

        Probably voted against his politicians also. How crass of him. Just being fasicious. I’m really proud of this man. He has been fighting a one man battle against some very formitable odds. He has gotten the back up he should have had all along. The militia backed down the BLM, FBI, HHS and the snipers they brought in to fire upon Americans. HURRAH Moline Labe.

        HARRY REID IS HIS SENATOR! What do you think he’s doing about anything on Cliven Bundy’s ranch? Nothing. “The government knows best.”
