HARRY REID SURRENDERS: Military wing of Bureau of Land Management Says It Will Leave Bundy Alone

Caleb Howe reports that the Harry Reid-controlled Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has raised the white flag and will cease its paramilitary operation against the Bundy family.

Fox News is reporting that the Nevada standoff between the Bureau of Land Management and the Bundy Ranch has come to an end. The feds are pulling out because it has become too dangerous for their employees and the public. In other words, the Bundys win…

Fox reports that 400 of 900 cattle have already been rounded up, but the operation is now ended before it was completed. This means that the intervention of the activists and supporters who have camped out near the disputed area was successful. The crowd, claiming that victory, cheered loudly as the sheriff announced the end of the operation.

The BLM is controlled by one of Harry Reid’s cronies.

Given Reid’s long history of troubling, sleazy deals, all of the attention on the Senate Majority Leader (thank you, Dana Loesch) seems to have paid off.

It’s all but certain that Reid was behind this land grab and I would bet that a close investigation would reveal more crony deals of the sort for which he’s infamous. Maybe someday we’ll have a real media — actual journalists and not partisan hacks — who will investigate this sort of government-run-amok madness.

CITIZENS OF THE WORLD: Mexican Military Held Border Patrol at Gunpoint Inside U.S. Borders

Reason #4,804 that the United States deserves a real president. Judicial Watch reports:

In the latest Mexican military incursion into the United States, two heavily armed camouflaged soldiers from Mexico actually crossed 50 yards inside Arizona and held American Border Patrol agents at gunpoint in a tense confrontation.

Armed with assault-style weapons, the Mexican soldiers retreated back south after a 35-minute standoff as if nothing ever happened and the Obama administration just let it slide. The unbelievable foray was made public by a mainstream newspaper that obtained government documents with alarming details of the January 26 incident. Specifically, the paper cites the Border Patrol Foreign Military Incursion report and a separate letter from U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, an Obama appointee who was recently sworn in.

The Mexican soldiers were spotted by a Border Patrol agent entering the U.S. about 2.5 miles west of Sasabe Arizona shortly before 9 a.m. A second federal agent positively identified the two individuals in tan, digital camouflage uniforms, on foot traveling westbound, on the United States side of the International Boundary Fence Line, according to the report obtained by the newspaper. The Mexicans misidentified themselves to U.S. Border agents and claimed to be pursuing drug smugglers, the government documents say.

Kerlikowske admits that the intruders were “confirmed members of the Mexican military” but he asserts that U.S. border officials determined that no further action was necessary involving the matter. Like a loyal Obama lapdog Kerlikowske claims military incursions from Mexico are infrequent though he was apparently forced to admit that there were 23 incidents in the Tucson and Yuma sectors of Arizona since 2010, including three this fiscal year alone.

The latest incursion was one of the most serious in recent years, according to U.S. officials that apparently didn’t want their name printed in the newspaper. The same officials, clearly insiders privy to information that’s not made public, seem to indicate that Mexican soldiers aren’t chasing drug smugglers but rather protecting cartels as they transport their cargo into the United States through the treacherous desert.

Let me repeat: members of the Mexican military weren’t pursuing drug- or human-smugglers. They were protecting drug cartels inside the United States of America.

November is coming.
