‘We the People Have Spoken’: Bundy Family Responds to Nevada Standoff Over Grazing Fees
The federal government surrendered this weekend in a standoff with a Nevada rancher accused of owing grazing fees.
The Bureau of Land Management released the 400 cattle it had seized from rancher Cliven Bundy and removed its heavily armed agents from the ranch.
Sean Hannity tonight asked Cliven and his two sons, Ammon and Ryan, what they thought of Sen. Harry Reid’s remarks that this situation is not over.
“Well if he doesn’t have enough moral fiber in his bones at all to see what happened, that we the people got together and made something right, then I don’t think there’s any hope for him, and he needs to be kicked out of office, even if he is the Senate majority leader, that doesn’t matter,” Ammon said.
“I think we the people have spoken, haven’t we?” Ryan remarked.
Cliven said the dispute is definitely politically motivated.
“They wanted to show the American people and the world that they had unlimited power,” he said.
Some of the cattle died after they were seized, Cliven said. He said that 27 of his baby cows are currently without their mothers.
The federal government maintains that Cliven owes $1 million in grazing fees.
“If I owe grazing fees, money to a government, I would be happy to pay it to the proper government, but I’ll be darned if I’m gonna pay grazing fees to the United States government,” he said.
