Reid: People who support Bundy are 'domestic terrorists'

As the Examiner has already noted previously, U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., Senate Majority Leader, referred to rancher Cliven Bundy as a "domestic terrorist." But Reid has now included anyone who supports Bundy in that wide swath of malicious and deadly character assassination.

What a week

Evening, folks. This has been quite a week. I haven't been able to keep my promises about the Roundup, but circumstances have made it impossible. A lot -- and I emphasize A LOT -- has been going on here, not to mention the struggle with allergies. This year has been one of the worst with regard to allergens due to the prolonged cold weather and the quickness with which flowers and vegetation bloomed when temps warmed up. This put a lot of stuff in the air.

But the main thing is the investigative work I've been doing on several fronts. There are things I wanted to check out myself so that I would have the information first hand. The Bundy situation is one of those. But more importantly, I wanted to try to find out what government insiders who share the same concerns as the patriot resistance are saying. This enables us to know what's going on behind the scenes.

This evening I will do an Examiner article, but I need the full support of readership. These are not peripheral matters but they go to the very heart of a free society, which is now being attacked with the full force of the leviathan government apparatus. They have not started shooting yet. But this is far from over. I hope and pray that they will reconsider what they've been thinking and back off.

Much more about this is in the Examiner article I will post in a bit.

Patriots form human shield around Bundy family

Federal agents made a spectacle out of their retreat from the scene of the standoff between government forces and Nev. rancher Clivan Bundy, family members and friends, and supporters who went to Nevada to support him. But immediately reports began circulating that the Feds were merely regrouping to conduct another assault, this time on the Bundy home itself. Word then came that Patriot groups planned to form a human shield around the Bundy family in order to protect them from any attempt by the Feds to use lethal force against them.

Yes, I'm here

I'm here but just distracted. Things should get better once the Easter music is done this coming Sunday, and I get a bit of rest.

I will still be here writing away, but my schedule is way off. I should have a Roundup ready for tomorrow, or Thursday. But if not, then just know I tried.

Things will be back to normal soon.

Now, wait a minute or two and I will have today's Examiner article posted. As always, thanks for reading.

Sources on Nev. land grab: 'This is far from over'

Excerpt:
When federal agents from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) decided to stand down in their confrontation between rancher Cliven Bundy, his family, and over a thousand supporters, it was assumed that the Bundys had won and the Feds were withdrawing in defeat.

While the stand down was indeed a victory for those who support Cliven Bundy in his bid to continue using land his family has used for over a century, from the start there were developments that did not add up or make sense.

WRSA presents a thorough comparative analysis of the gun rights rally in Connecticut last week and the current goings on in Nevada over property rights. Good reading.

David Codrea writes about "flower-shell" products. It seems a guy wants to distribute a product that allows shooters to fill shotgun shells with flower seeds.

Traction Control shows us all of the latest products he has added to his gun store inventory as of today.

So the beat goes on

Afternoon, patriots.

Today I will do a "make-up" post of the Gun Rights and Liberty News Roundup since I was not able to do so earlier in the week. This will give you two good Roundups to enjoy and explore.

You will note that as I have expanded the coverage of gun blogs over the past few months, I take a least one day per week to highlight some lesser-known blogs that get little recognition but that are actually very good.

I still highlight my regular favorites though, since these tend to be the movers and the shakers. I hope you like the balance.

I rummage through 60 - 80 gun blogs per week in order to find suitable posts for the Roundup. That is no easy task but one which I am happy to do. Although I have cut back to twice per week for the Roundup, you still get around 40 blogs from which to choose.

In addition to The Liberty Sphere, I still do the column at The Examiner, of course. I am into my seventh year doing that. As always my pay is based upon the number of people who click on the link and read the articles.

This time of year is further complicated by the fact that I am always preparing to conduct special Easter music for my church. Twice per year things get very busy -- the weeks prior to Christmas and the weeks prior to Easter. Those are the two special days during which we present new Christmas and Easter musicals.

Although these things are time-consuming and fraught with snags and snafus, I thoroughly enjoy doing them. I have often said that secretly in my mind I have held to a lifelong desire to be an orchestra conductor -- something that I never got to do but that I to this day still relish. So, although I am but a lowly church choral conductor, this ministry gives me the opportunity to live vicariously through my favorite maestros, such as Eugene Ormandy.

So, today I thought I would give you a brief update on my activities of late. Stay tuned for the Roundup and the Examiner column that I will post this afternoon.

Golden Geese News notes something that is even more dangerous than ====GASP====global warming!!!

From the Christian Mercenary: "Same Pig, Different Lipstick."

A Geek with Guns shares his thoughts on the new generation of shooters.

pdb started a new series on the types and models of guns he hates. His first entry on the subject is now posted. Take a look.

Breaking: Feds in Nevada cattle dispute taze citizens

Excerpt:
This video on YouTube shows federal agents tasering protesters and turning K9 police dogs loose on the citizens.

If the video is an example of the manner in which federal law enforcement is handling this volatile situation, then it is clear that there has been a marked escalation of tensions since yesterday.

Stuff

Well, I didn't get around to the Gun Rights and Liberty News Roundup today as I had planned. "Stuff" going on.

Now, you may want to know what "stuff" is in this case. Well, nothing in particular that's earth-shattering. Just stuff...you know, things that everyday life throws at you that you have to take care of. You have your stuff, and I have my stuff.

What I hate, though, is that stuff sometimes gets in the way of what I want to do, and what I had planned to do. I get right perturbed by it. No, I'm wrong right there. I get damn mad.

So, stuff happens, and we live with it and do the best we can. Maybe tomorrow? At this point, who knows. I plan to do the Roundup tomorrow. But you know what they say, "The best laid plans of mice and men..."  

Holder blows stack at congressman

Excerpt:
...As an aside Gohmert further stated that Holder had been held in contempt of Congress in 2012 for failing to turn over documents related to the infamous Fast and Furious scheme in which Obama administration officials took American guns across the southern border to Mexican drug cartels in order to bolster their false claim that "most of the guns used by the drug cartels come from the United States."

Holder's response to Gohmert was to lose his cool and blast him for bringing up the subject.
