Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy is on the campaign trail in support of Tea Partiers and he’s taunting the feds over his unpaid grazing fees. Bundy owes $1,1 million after grazing his cattle on federal land for years and the attempts to collect that debt throughout the years resulted in a standoff at his ranch, with militia members and Republicans siding with the rancher.

[su_center_ad]Talking Points Memo reports:

The Elko Daily Free Press reported on comments Bundy made at a tea party-sponsored event Thursday in Elko, Nev. Officials there are advocating for public land to be transferred from federal to state control. But Bundy said that the state and local authorities already own the land.

He invoked his unauthorized grazing of cattle on federal land as proof.

“I don’t run my cows on United States government land, I run my cows in the state of Nevada and Clark County,” Bundy said. “And besides, if the federal government says I owe, why don’t they give me a bill? And why don’t they collect that bill?”

Bundy speaking on 9-11:

    What an idiot. It is hard to believe that people actually waste time to go see and hear him speak. The only audience Bundy should have should be a captive audience, in prison.

      He was at a Tea Party rally. Per Capita there are more idiots assembled there than……..a larger Tea Party rally.

    He’s seriously trying to claim he hasn’t received a bill? Where’s the video of his nose growing?

  5. Billy Jackson September 13th, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    Well, it’s time the feds taunted his old ass right into jail.

    I am soooo hoping for a national endorsement tour for him! Maybe even a speech at the national Republican Convention?

  7. M D Reese September 13th, 2014 at 12:47 pm

    I understand that the local grazing fees are higher than the Federal fees. If it is indeed State land, he actually owes about 4 times as much.

    This guy is a deadbeat, trying to convince people that he isn’t.

      Deadbeat, synonym, Clive Bundy

    So why the flag? It sounds as if he doesn’t believe in it.

      Klevin believes in what Klevin wants – everybody else (including laws he don’t like) be damned. TYPICAL WHITE Republican spoiled arrogant privileged brat syndrome – with the expected results when they get what they want by throwing a tempie tantrum.

    What an asshole

  12. granpa.usthai September 13th, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    sad that Lady Liberty has been beaten and raped by this pile of arrogant Kow Khips Kowboy, but like any overly pampered spoiled WHITE racist punk spoiled brat – give ’em what they want when throwing their tempie tantrums and they’ll just keep throwing more.

    Why wasn’t he arrested for tax evasion? If I owed the Feds that kind of money they wouldn’t be so nice and forgiving… why does this entitled asshole get a pass? Hey FBI, hey Justice Dept, how about treating people equally under the law? Or is that asking too much?

    • tiredoftea September 13th, 2014 at 8:41 pm

      You need the number of the local militia on your speed dial!

  14. juicyfruityyy September 13th, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    All the reason why they should have arrested him and the militia on day one.

    Near as I can tell, Cliven Bundy. perhaps as a result of advanced age, does not fully comprehend the fact that the things he says in a small gathering of people can also be seen and heard, thanks to the newfangled miracle of video recording, by the remainder of the world.

    Tell me this isn’t a racists country! Bundy owes back taxes and is not only getting away with it, he has militias, fully armed and dangerous, terrorizing the town, shooting at feds, and nothing is done! law enforcement even side with bundy!

    Meanwhile, a black teen is shot dead by police for jaywalking! jaywalking! who hasn’t done that? the black residents protest, michael browns reputation is smeared, and the towns law enforcement violate the civil rights of law abiding protestors by bringing out their military toys, fire gas, beat, and call the protesters animals and other vile names!

    the black protesters are not armed and have the right to assemble and ptotest, but not in ferguson! The law abiders are treated like criminals while bundy and his posse get a pass!

    How about we just let Nevada go? Just let them become a country all on its own, and cut ALL federal funding, and label any and all military bases as federally-owned embassies. See just how long they last.

  18. cvryder2000 September 15th, 2014 at 11:27 am

    Just arrest him already.

  19. Thaddeus Kozubal September 17th, 2014 at 4:27 am

    Bundy belongs in jail, not on the campaign trail.

  20. gendotte September 23rd, 2014 at 3:56 am

    I would freeze his accounts and gather his heard up. He can keep the change if there is any after the fines.
