The Bundy Ranch Saga has crystallized the mood of the American people.
Cliven Bundy, in a dispute with the Federal government, managed to call enough attention to his plight to mobilize hundreds of Americans to stand with him as he nullified federal law.
Through organized networks of regular Americans and largely through social media, and without traditional news media calling attention to Bundy’s side of the complaint, the Federal government found out in a hurry that heavy-handed tactics against the American people will not work.
I believe regular Americans are on the cusp of doing what it takes to teach the Federal government that they work for us, not the other way around, and the mood of the nation is reflected in The Bundy Ranch Saga.
Breitbart’s Tony Lee summed up a “national mood” poll in January this way:
“..66% of Americans are ‘unhappy with the size and power of the federal government.’ This number has been the roughly the same for the last three years after jumping 10 percentage points between 2008 and 2011. In addition, 65% of Americans ‘are dissatisfied with the nation’s system of government and how well it works, the highest percentage in Gallup’s trend since 2001.’”
The poll’s summary read, “Obama and the elected representatives in Congress have faced a tough audience in the American public in recent years, with the majority dissatisfied with the performance of government and concerned about its size and power.”
But, this standoff also showed that television and print media, in large part, have become irrelevant, which also reflects recent polling, like this 2011 Gallup poll, showing that the majority of Americans consistently distrust the media, and can discern its bias.
“Americans remain largely distrusting of the news media, with 55% saying they have little or no trust in the media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly, and 60% perceiving bias one way or the other.”
“American’s Confidence in Newspapers Continue to Erode,” is the title of another poll by Gallup, done last summer. “Americans with higher levels of education — college or beyond — are less confident in TV news than those with only some or no college education. However, Americans of all educational backgrounds express similarly low confidence in newspapers,” the summary read.
With the highest number of Americans now describing themselves politically as independents, it’s been found that most independent voters get their news from the internet.
In addition, Americans see the President as not honest nor trustworthy, and Congress as more responsive to a biased media than to voters.
That means that the American people have responded to media bias by seeking out information they believe to be true, using their own discernment, rather than allow most news media reports be the last word on any subject. It means traditional media is becoming irrelevant. It also means that Americans do not trust Washington DC, and see themselves as the antidote to the power and corruption of the federal government and that traditional, MSM, whatever you like to call the large conglomerate media, is seen as much as an enemy of the people as is the federal government.
America’s mood is ripe for confrontation; I think that is clear. Many believe that it has been for a while now, and believe, as I do, that the President’s extreme partisan stance on every issue, his rejection of traditional American values and dictatorial rejection of the rule of law, while the media looks the other way, or worse, defends it, has driven Americans to be on constant alert. If they can’t trust their government or get an even shake in the media, they only have themselves, don’t they?
The Bundy Ranch Saga proved the American people are fed up. That realization begs the question, “What will happen next?”http://cnsnews.com/commentary/jen-kuznicki/bundy-ranch-saga-proved-american-people-are-fed
Cliven Bundy, Federal Bureaucracy and the State’s Monopoly of Violence
Liberals celebrate state violence over the individual
April 16, 2014 by Kurt Nimmo
John Amato and the liberals over at Crooks and Liars are outraged. Cliven Bundy went on Fox News and said he would like to see all federal bureaucrats disarmed. For liberals who adore the state and support the unprecedented militarization of federal bureaucrats, including but hardly limited to the Post Office, this massive arming and militarization is a natural and welcome occurrence.
For progressive socialists who love the state, the rapid growth of government into all facets of life is an evolutionary process. The founders, who liberals routinely dismiss as evil white property owners and slaveholders, knew government is like fire, a dangerous servant and a fearful master. The original government bureaucracy was infinitesimally small compared to the bloated Leviathan we face today – it consisted of three tiny departments: State, Treasury, and War.
All of this changed when the revered patron saint of the liberals, Abraham Lincoln, grew the government exponentially. The administration of Franklin Roosevelt, under the socialist New Deal supposedly in response to an economic depression created by the banker-controlled Federal Reserve (itself masquerading as a government bureaucracy), expanded government to a new and previously unrealized degree.
A bloated control freak state, enriched with confiscated wealth and obsessed with exercising authority over all aspects of life, will invariably seek a monopoly of violence and will use that violence against perceived domestic enemies. In order to maintain that monopoly, the Department of Homeland Security has hoarded 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. The state’s war machine has doled out military hardware – armored vehicles, grenade launchers, M-16 assault rifles and more – to police departments far and wide.
For the metrosexual urbanite lovers of state power over the individual and natural law, fellow Americans outraged over the growth of a control freak criminal government are the enemy. They believe a rural Mormon cattle rancher espousing “revolutionary talk” harking back to Jefferson and Madison should be arrested, prosecuted and, if necessary, slaughtered.
“These state’s rights lunatics are getting more dangerous by the second and I’m afraid some real violence is going to be instigated by them shortly as they feel emboldened with the help of Fox News, Sean Hannity, Drudge and the Alex Jones fanatics,” Amato writes.
The “real violence,” of course, is exercised by the state, not a Nevada rancher and a handful supporters, a number armed in response to BLM paramilitaries. The state, Murray Rothbard has noted, is essentially a criminal band and has two fundamental properties: the use of violence, and territory. “Indeed, not only is the state made up of a body of people who claim the right to use coercive violence, but their claim to violence is, more typically, endemic to the territory over which they rule,” writes Matt Palmer.
Amato and crew, spurred on by the likes of the Southern Poverty Law Center, enthusiastically celebrate state violence over the individual and proudly uphold the worst psychotic behavior.
“The man or woman who is prepared to initiate an act of punishment to compel obedience to a governmental mandate easily segues into the SWAT team member or police brute or one who tortures another. It is the appetite for ultimate power over others that drives such people,” writes Butler Shaffer. “No more than we would expect Mother Theresa to operate a brothel can we imagine advocates of peace and liberty to be welcomed into the management of the state.”
Thus it is a natural response for cheerleaders for state violence against the individual to anticipate and even encourage mass murder – from Syria and Afghanistan to the desert of Nevada. Liberals outraged by the audacity of Cliven Bundy expect a repeat of the Waco massacre and will, if such a horrific act occurs in Nevada, instinctively blame the victims.
Incidentally, Amato’s Crooks and Liars blog was voted one of the 25 best blogs of 2009 by Time Magazine, which is entirely appropriate considering the blog’s role in promoting the continued distractions of the false left-right paradigm and rationalizing state violence.
Time’s founder, Henry Luce, worked closely with the national security state and routinely pulled “chestnuts out of the fire for the CIA” and dutifully served the political establishment as it controlled media under Operation Mockingbird.http://www.infowars.com/cliven-bundy-federal-bureaucracy-and-the-states-monopoly-of-violence/http://reclaimourrepublic.wordpress.com/2014/04/17/video-bundy-ranch-saga-proved-the-american-people-are-fed-up-libs-celebrate-state-violence-over-the-individual/
