If you haven’t been following the unfolding drama at the Bundy Ranch about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas you need to start now. The escalating confrontation between irate local residents and federal agents of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has the potential to take a very dangerous turn for the worse at any moment, as hundreds of militia members from states across the country are expected to descend upon the area and make a stand with 67-year-old Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.
The kindling for social upheaval has been growing in America for quite some time.
The question in my mind has always been what will the catalyst be to spark the brushfire? Will it be the Bundy Ranch?
An area just outside of the little town of Bunkerville, Nevada, with a population of around a thousand people, may go down in history. This little spot in the desert may be compared with Concord, Massachusetts, the site of the “shot heard round the world” – the first shot fired in the American Revolution. Because it looks like the second American Revolution may start there…and soon.
It seems that the US government, in all of their infinite wisdom, has declared war on a cattle rancher named Cliven Bundy.
Armed federal officers have arrived to steal Bundy’s cattle and close down the land he is using. What’s more, they have declared a zone around the area to be free of the restrictions of the Constitution, specifically, the First Amendment right to assemble and speak freely. They’d like to keep their reprehensible actions quiet and out of the public eye. It’s really difficult to mow down a bunch of protesters ala Waco with the whole world watching.
Yesterday, tensions began to rise even further and numerous protestors were tazed and assaulted. (You can see the actions of those brave BLM officers on this video HERE). It looks like tensions will rise even further because Americans have had enough.
Militias have been mobilised. It’s going to get real.
Bundy may be facing down a bunch of armed federal thugs but he’s going to be backed up by militia members from across the country.
This is the day that Patriots have been talking about and training for. They will not stand down.
On December 17th, we warned SD readers that Senator Feinstein was drafting the most draconian anti-2nd amendment legislation imaginable, and that the Obama administration had its sights set on instigating the 2nd American Revolution by going after 100 million Americans’ guns.
Der Führer in Chief was on Meet the Press Sunday, and to no surprise, Obama stated he is putting his full weight behind Feinstein’s bill, which criminalizes the possession, use, and sale of nearly all guns.
Obama stated that “I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it…
I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”

With the Obama administration blatantly attacking the 2nd amendment and going after Americans’ Constitutional right to protect themselves from a tyrannical government, Max Keiser talks to trends forecaster, Gerald Celente of TrendsResearch.com in the latest Keiser Report about the next American Revolution.
