Now they've torn down a few tens of yards of Federal fence on Federal land so their buddy's cows can graze freely.
A judge is threatening to fine them something up to $70K for required security costs.
You can't make this stuff up.

Now they have elected a "judge" who will try Hammond v. Bureau of Land Management. He will prepare a finding.

Re: insurrection
Oh, we can hang 'em. Illegally occupying federal land is treason.

Re: insurrection
Can't find it right how, but one site did post a part of a law saying that occupying federal land (among other things) is treason.

Now they have bulldozed a more convenient path...
Through an archaeological site, which is why the path didn't go through there.
And the convicted (2nd degree, sentence served) murderer who just showed up totin' his gun.

Re: Apparent News blackout
Yeah, but it's not every day you get a barrel of flaming dildos. The Canadian media is definitely remiss if they didn't cover that.

I am convinced that space aliens are playing a huge practical joke on us.
One of the militia wants to sumo-wrestle Chris Christie to settle the grievances.

The occupation is over, the fun continues.
One of the occupiers is suing the gummint for literally being a tool of Satan. And much, much more. Of course no Federal judge or lawyer is empowered to hear the case. You will not believe the damages she wants!

Re: Bundys victims of Constitution-violating government tyranny
most of them are engineered and aimed to destroy him personally far more than they are about any particular issue,
Bullshit. Show the evidence.
some even with bussed-in and paid-for participants, and many become violent.
Bullshit. Show the evidence. Note that "many" requires a comparison. "Many" compared with what, and why choose that? I would compare to all protests of a number of participants 50% or more the size of the smallest protest you cite.

I wouldn't accept that claim without some quotes. But the Federalist papers are not law. They are useful in discerning the intent of the Founders.
However, the Constitution is law and states:
quote:
The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.
Many court cases over many years have established that "Property belonging to the United States" explicitly means the Federal government may own property. And it does. And it has the rights of any property owner.
If someone dislikes that our legal system provides many avenues for changing it. Armed rebellion is discouraged.

Armed is armed.
The Constitution is law, and I've pointed out what part is relevant and how it's been interpreted. If you want to discuss the Federalist papers bring the quotes and analysis.
