The BLM changed the land use, and set about buying back the unused portions of the permits.
Bundy refused to sell, and the permit was revoked.
I assumed he appealed, through the appeal process and lost,(big surprise!)
I think the lesson here, be careful who you do business with.
The Government can change it's mind in regards to a contract, and the affected
business has no recourse.
I just hope they don't decide to revoke permits to access the interstate,
because the western concrete lizard is endangered.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
The fact is that the Bundy's are anti US Government extremists that have made it clear that they think that they are above the law. They wont comply with court orders and CLiven is on record asserting that he believes the the US Government doesnt even exist. The Bundy's have been saying all along that they will use force if necessary to keep their cattle on that land. The BLM would be fools to not show up wielding protective gear and weapons.
SO show me where it is illegal for Federal law enforcement to have the weapons that they had in Nevada. DO you even know what exact weapons that they had? Or are you just making big assumptions? I mean if citizens can point loaded high power weapons at the BLM what the hell are you crying about if the BLM has their own weapons? Shouldnt they have weapons if the citizens show up with weapons in hand? Or do you think that Law Enforcement should just have billy clubs?
So why dont you show us your source that is evidence that the BLM revoked Bundy's permit?
Everything you need to know about the long fight between Cliven Bundy and the federal government
The quote from March 1993.
The fact that they revoked his permit, says he had a permit.Bundy has repeatedly been fined for grazing his cattle on the protected land, fines he has not paid since 1993. The Bureau of Land Management, which oversees about 800 grazing areas in Nevada, responded by revoking his permit. Bundy has not applied for a new one.
They were fining him for grazing cattle on protected land, which he had a permit to do.
I wonder if they offered fair market value, when they offered to buy his permit?
