    Do you not know that there are hundreds of death threats to presidents and congresspeople every week? Always have been, always will be.

    And a 10-year-old on a smart phone can make a death threat as a prank. In fact, a DEMOCRAT can make a death threat just to make REPUBLICANS look bad. Those kinds of tactics are used all the time in politics.

    Hey, don't single me out, all I did was post the breaking news story. I do believe there's something to the story though, many people out in western states dislike the US Government, mostly the people who feel the government has overdone it's authority. It's usually whackadoodles who make the threats against lawmakers. It wouldn't come as a surprise to me if it were found to be a militia person making the threats to Reid.

    Could be.

    I'm just saying it happens every single day. Reid has been getting these calls for years and years and years, but NOW he needs to bring them to the limelight because the situation is hot and he needs a distraction and some sympathy. The media, of course, is more than willing to oblige him.

    Of course. This fight out west has been brewing since what? 1993 or earlier? And now it's festering like a boil on someone's neck, and won't go away.

    Of course, there's conspiracy theorists who believe the BLM is out for a land grab in Texas, but a BLM spokesperson already made statements saying it was false. When people think of a land grab, they think that the land was privately owned, some may have been, some maybe not. If you rent or lease federal lands, that doesn't mean that by the lease, you automatically own it. It can be taken back and made back into true public lands for people to use, and ranchers see this as a threat to their lives.

    Yes, threats and intimidation date back to the earliest times. I can't imagine how the Lincoln administration must have dealt with threats to him.

    It was said on some MSM threats to Obama's life increased as much as 500% after he assumed office of the presidency.

    MSM might have been tipped off about a recent spike in threats to Reid, who knows the motive for releasing such a news tip.

    I have a 2nd Amendment solution to that. If an armed militia member attempts to stop your car, make sure you have a bigger gun than he does, and kill the asshole. You don't get in trouble for self defense.

    So now, while Harry the Rep. in Nevada tried to have the government enforce laws, people are threatening him.

    That must be the last resort for anti government folks.

    So, the Bundy militia is now stopping ordinary citizens at checkpoints they have set up themselves.

    Sounds like a Gestapo tactic to me.

    Given that this is basically open fields with a few highways, where are these checkpoints being set up? Under what actually real authority does the 'militia' clam a right to stop anyone for anything? Why are the police tolerating this?

    Why? who knows? maybe looking for federal law enforcement officers?

    IMO, they have no right to stop people, unless of course they're on private property and hired out by the owner.

    Why are the police tolerating this? I would have to say the sheriff doesn't want to get involved in the situation, that is, if the militia people are stopping vehicles or people on a public highway.

    No, this doesn't make them terrorists, as terrorism is a specific thing with a real definition. Just because you and I don't like it and it rightly makes us mad, doesn't mean they're terrorists. Please calm the hyperbole.

    You can't stop people using a public road even if it's on your property. If you were to look at the official record of your land you would see that any public road crossing it is on an easement or right-of-way operating under federal/state protection.

    Anyway I'm not looking for opinion, I'm looking for actual fact. If you have any real knowledge on this I thank you in advance for the links you've already reviewed leading you to that knowledge.
