Bundy Ranch

Read by Ammon Bundy at the Clark County Sheriff Precinct, May 2, 2014

As we have had the opportunity to reflect on the events that took place between March 26th and April 12th, 2014-we have experienced feelings of concern, confusion, fear, anger, sadness and joy.

Our peaceful community has been shaken. In many ways, we are still processing the magnitude of what took place. We ask ourselves so many questions; did the federal government really come into this valley and terrorize our community?

Did hundreds of armed forces, in Red Dawn fashion, lock down the hills and valleys of our peaceful home-threatening at gunpoint, anyone who stepped off the paved road, with forceful and lethal action?

Did we really see armed forces convoying through the streets of our town, diligently recording names and identities of anyone who glanced wrong or opposed them in any way?

Was there really heavy equipment in the form of dump trucks and backhoes, on our mountains, tearing up infrastructure that we have used for hundreds of years, and is vital to our survival? Were we truly in the cross-hairs of snipers, and under surveillance by the latest in technological weapons?

Did these forces actually point their rifles in the faces of our little children, while beating their unarmed fathers to the dirt and hauling them off in chains?

Did they really body-slam our friend, a 59 year old woman to the ground, and sic German Shepherds on our neighbors-even a pregnant woman?

Did they actually shock a man multiple times with a 50,000 volt Taser for honorably protecting his aunt, while she gathered herself out of the dust?

We reflect in sadness and awe that this could take place in our little town. The terror of armed men occupying our land will never be forgotten. The feelings of despair of these events will long reside in our hearts. Thoughts of anxiousness that this may ever happen again, will awaken us from our pillows from time to time.

During quiet reflection, we may ask ourselves if we did the right thing by resisting. Were we in the right when we acted to safeguard ourselves? When the only response to our multiple pleas for help was silence, when we were left alone to clean our cuts and wounds, did we have a divine right, duty, and obligation to protect our family and ourselves?

We recall the many times we pleaded with our local government to protect us; the numerous times we called 911, and begged our Sheriff to send his deputies to assist. Our cries of distress were met with silence. We ask ourselves, "Did we try hard enough to get our local government and law enforcement to act as a buffer and perform their duty to protect and serve?"

Were the hundreds of phone calls not enough, or is it just that our elected leaders and Sheriff have forsaken the people in trade for power and money? We whole-heartedly want to believe that our Sheriff would not abandon us, but where has his shielding influence been?

Why was he not here to represent and protect the very men, women and children of his county that he swore an oath for? Why did he stand silent and neutral, knowing our community was in terror? What was his motivation of inaction; was it fear of the federal government or political reprisal from powerful politicians?

The scars of this traumatic event will heal over time. We hope our community will eventually return to a sense of normalcy. We fervently hope and pray that these heavy-handed tactics will not be used on us or any other American ever again. We wonder if our hopes will be in vain; will they return?

Will they come back with greater force and more cunning tactics than before? Will our Sheriff keep his oath this time, and use his lawful forces to stop them, or will the people be left to their own protection? Will the good people of this nation yet again have to come running to the rescue of a neighbor?

Will veterans, retired police force, churches, businesses, families and individuals have to unite once again to confront these acts of governmental terror upon the American people?

Will our local government rouse themselves from disaffection and intervene-protecting the people? Will they stop fearing to do the right thing and come to the realization that the people are more important than a government agency? Will they fight for the rights of the state and her people?

They must stop putting personal gain and advancement in front of the rights of citizens.

They need to recognize, that as our elected representatives, they have more power than those governing in brute force, as they have the might of the people of this state backing them. With that power we invest in them, they have the obligation to safeguard our livelihoods, combat forces of fear, and protect our lives with their own.

A few weeks ago, our community was in a state of innocence and naivety. We felt safe and mostly kept to ourselves. We thought the world's problems would only affect us through television, and could be shut off with the push of a button.

Our innocence has left us now, we have experienced first-hand the breath of force upon our necks. We have gasped in desperation as our lives and agency were threatened. Our cries have been ignored by our guardians in the next room.

We faced a choice-either lie down and submit helplessly in defeat, or bite, scratch, and fight until help would come. We are eternally and profoundly grateful for the many heroic neighbors who heard our desperate cries and crashed through the windows to rescue.

We additionally thank the thousands that came from every States in this great nation, and stood in front of raised guns in our defense, and for the hope that those same guns would never come to their doors and their families.

We are grateful for those that arrived with pen and camera, those that arrived with faith and prayers, and those that arrived with fist and gun. The variety of support from all walks of life has shown that this was an event that truly touched the good hearts of many Americans.

We cannot thank you all enough-you have restored our faith in the goodness of the American people. Our message to all, is that it is time to make things right. It is time to adhere to the supreme law of the land-The Constitution of the United States.

It is time to understand right, stand for what's right, and do whatever it takes to make it right. We must continue the vision of our Founding Fathers in preserving the freedoms of the American people and the sovereign rights of the States.

A nation can never abandon its fate to an authority it cannot control.

Men must decide if their rights and freedoms are God-granted or are assigned by a federal government. We believe in the rule of laws and sustain a limited government. May God bless us to protect this sacred instrument.

Thank you,
The Bundy Family

Wendy I call BS look at the vid

This is very informative. Ryan Payne, who is behind much of the slander against Oath Keepers and division at the Bundy Ranch, has been tab checked by the Ranger Association.

He is not nor ever has been an Army Ranger.

Please do not post this on Oath Keeper facebook sites. If you feel the need to post it, do it on personal or other pages.

This is for your information as far as I am concerned.

If you were closer instead of on the other side of the country, I would have stood side by side with you, but I signed every petition I could and sent e-mails in support of you and your family...Now its on to DC and OAS !!!

Very well written and said.  Many questions remain unanswered....Why? being one of them.  Why did the Government show such force over such an insignificant issue?  One answer could be......this was another test case, just as New Orleans was a test case on confiscation of arms.  Was martial law declared there?   How far will the citizenry of the United States be pushed into direct and even physical conflict with this administration that trashes the Constitution and all of its time proven rules of law?  (The Constitution has been the basis of all laws now for some 200+ years.)  The question of the OAS and American citizens is.... if this Congress is going to refuse to be the body of checks and balances, then whose side are they on?  and now, what do we do with them?  To fight the BLM is a battle.  It is not the war on who manages and controls the BLM.  So, who manages and controls the IRS, BLM, NSA, el al?  Maybe we should ask Harry Reid? ........

Pray OAS is a success. The media is trying to shove Bush against Hilary for president and they are no better than Obama so we will be in the same boat. We need to tell the msm that we can chose our own people and not their norm.

you said it about a bleak future,,another choice,,the lesser of 2 evils

Dear Bundy Family,

Even here in Illinois that is over-run with Progressive Idiots, Communists, Socialists (I could get MORE specific, but I won't, at least for the moment...) You and your family are not only ADMIRED, but Revered as one of the Last standing amongst U.S.!

Again, Dear Bundy's, I am in one of the oldest subdivisions about a mile outside of Kankakee, IL. There are 28 homes here built from the early 1950s and up until now. About half of U.S. are retired and yet we still have families with children ranging from 0+ to 18 years old. I know my neighbors VERY well and out of our 28 homes, 22 are armed and ready. We are VERY "Close-Knit" and will remain so. (We're not talking about just "home defense" with .22s, .380s, 38s, 9mms, .357s.............) We have a "Neighborhood Watch" setup for more reasons than just "The Norm". What's "The Norm?"  Well, I guess it's just some idiot that would try to enter your home when you are absent or sleeping (that has happened here--- just ONCE). What are the reasons beyond THAT? When our own DAMNED Government usurps their citizen-given power to mess with U.S.! Our small, local airport now has black government helicopters in their hangers. Our county Sheriff's Dept. has a MRAP vehicle donated free from the FED'S "get rid of our old SH*T program".

You see IT as well or better than the Rest of U.S. Believe me, Your Family is NOT ALONE!

Most Sincerely,

God Be With U.S., God IS With U.S.!

Wow Don, A damned Govt. Helicopter in the local hanger?? That's scary stuff kiddo. You can also bet your butt that those who operate the copter and other special protection for them, are also living in your town. BEWARE and BE ARMED!!! Prays out to you all.

I fear a fight like this will come to Idaho which is 60% federal land . The state wants the feds to release the land back to Idaho as intended from day one.

Federal Land belongs to the States and the State Legislatures can take ownership using State Law. There is no provision in the U.S. Constitution allowing the federal government to own land in any State.  The 10th Amendment protects the States from having their land seized. 

The federal government is constitutionally prohibited from owning this type of property within a state.

We cannot surrender or we will become one of them, I would rather die!

All in all,  this was a great victory for the Bundys and the patriot movement as we can see by the response that was recorded in a town hall mtg. with many other citizens of Las Vegas, Nev.:  A SHOT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD.

It was truely inspiring to see americans across this great land to go to the aid of one family fighting for the rights they had for generations. A small example what happens when tyrannts wake the sleeping giant. God Bless America and God Bless The Bundy Family.

The last four lines essentially lay out the message that we carry into OAS.  It is up to us to protect ourselves and our God-given rights and correct the course that our Nation has been on.
