- 12. Center for Biological Diversity: Turning Grizzlies on Arizona's Rural Families
When will the average Arizona voter stop giving any credence to these radical environmental knuckleheads? Groups like the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and Sierra Club use the ESA (Endangered Species Act) to deny American citizens our Constitutional protections of individual liberties and property rights.
It isn't enough that they have used lawsuits to stop cattle grazing, logging, and badly needed forest thinning projects throughout Arizona and New Mexico. The pile-up of combustibles has frequently exploded into the most catastrophic fires in U.S. history, including the 2002 Rodeo-Chediski Fire.
Stop and think about that. They stop actions that remove forest underbrush, which leads to monumental fires that burn up the forests and hundreds of millions of animals, and pours toxic carbon into the atmosphere. These groups are on a mission to protect "endangered" plants and animals and the environment? They are doing everything they can to destroy it!
It isn't enough that these groups have set Mexican wolves loose on rural citizens in Arizona and New Mexico.Now, this evil Tucson-based group of power hungry, tantrum throwing degenerates wants to turn Grizzlies loose in the Grand Canyon and in our backyards.These groups are no different than the villains in old western movies rampaging from one frontier town to another.Grizzlies used to roam all over the west...until nasty varmints called people moved here. Ah, now we know the real enemy, don't we. Humans.

- 14. Don't Tread on Us. American Citizens are Not Your Slaves!
You want the cattle? Moooolon Labe!
What you will see here is American citizens facing AR-15s, and breaching the gate forcing the BLM to drop their weapons. These American citizens would rather die than be slaves to a tyrannical government.

- 16. The Truth About Why the BLM Wanted Cliven Bundy off the Land: Harry Reid and Money and Power
Don’t be fooled into believing that the BLM cares about a bunch of dusty, old tortoises that are supposedly endangered.
Think about it. In the name of the poor, dear tortoises, the BLM just spent millions of dollars to round up 300 of Cliven Bundy's "trespassing cattle." They managed to kill about 130 of them in the process. Why? Because, not only don't they care about a bunch of tortoises, they also don't care about a bunch of cows. Using their helicopters they ran many of them to death in 100-degree desert heat. Many of those cows were pregnant and weren't given veterinary care; many of the newborns that survived their births died from lack of nourishment and callous treatment; many cows were fat with milk, having been separated from their newborn calves. Each cow that died at the hands of the BLM thugs had a value of about $1500.
The BLM had enough money to pay thugs to intimidate, taser, and throw Americans to the ground. The BLM had enough money to hire cowboy mercenaries to help round up Cliven Bundy's cattle. The BLM had enough money to send over 80 brand new shiny trucks to Clark County. The had enough money to arm their thugs with helmet, body armor, and AR-15s.
Yet, the BLM didn't have enough money to feed the desert tortoises at the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center, so they euthanized them. See Desert Tortoise Conservation Center plan to Euthanize Hundreds of Tortoises in Nevada.
Put on your thinking cap. Does this make logical sense? Of course it doesn't! Because it isn't the truth.
In fact, the federal government doesn't care about any endangered species. If they did, they wouldn’t allow the wholesale slaughter of every "endangered" critter that gets cooked by SOLAR and chopped up by WIND.
So, what do the federal government and their corporate cronies care about?Click here to read more
- 17. Cliven Bundy Calls on Sheriff to Start Arresting BLM Feds
In the ongoing crisis in Clark County leadership, Clive Bundy demanded that Sheriff Doug Gillespie do what he is paid to do. Clive Bundy stood before Moapa Valley Town Hall the evening of April 9 and stated:
“He is the man that has constitutional jurisdiction and authority, he has policing power here in Clark County Nevada, and he has arresting power, so we elected him and we pay him, what do we pay him to do?” asked Bundy, adding, “Don’t we pay him to protect our life, liberty and property?”
“I love you people, and I love this land, and I love freedom and liberty, and I love the sovereign state of Nevada and nobody can tell me the United States owns this land,” said Bundy, adding that he would pay any grazing fees to Clark County and not the federal government.
Asserting that the land under dispute was owned by the people of Clark County, Bundy asked, “Is the United States government trespassing on your land?” to which the crowd reacted with an emphatic “yes!”
During the town hall meeting, Bundy’s sister, Margaret Houston also spoke about how she was assaulted by BML agents earlier in the day, remarking, “It felt like a war zone and I felt like I was not in the United States….they have snipers, they have helicopters, they’re carrying machine guns, it’s not pretty, it’s like a foreign country.”

- 19. They're Baaaaaaack! Gilbert's Building, Energy and Green Codes, that is
The following FREE MARKET KILLING CODES are currently in effect, thanks to Mayor John Lewis, Vice Mayor Ben Cooper, and Council Members Jenn Daniels and Jordan Ray:
2012 International Building Code
2012 International Residential Code
2012 International Mechanical Code
2012 International Plumbing Code
2012 International Fuel Gas Code
2006 International Energy Conservation Code
2012 International Fire Code
2011 National Electrical Code
Building and Construction Regulations Code of the Town of Gilbert, Arizona - 2013 Edition
This Thursday night, 1/30/2014, 4 Gilbert Council Members, including Mayor John Lewis, claiming to "represent" Gilbert families, will very likely, once again, turn deaf, dumb, and blind to them and add to the above unnecessary codes. The new addition is proposed: The Leftist inspired Energy and Green Codes! Unless Gilbert staff members can present valid arguments to support that these codes are necessary to health and safety, they should all be voluntary, not LAW. Please send an email to Mayor Lewis and all Council Members and ask them to please vote NO to these Energy and Green Codes. They should be voluntary: Councilmembers@GilbertAZ.gov.
A public records request made by Gordon Ray revealed that 57 people had emailed Mayor John Lewis and all Council Members to NOT adopt the 2012 unnecessary codes (that they adopted anyway). They should have remained voluntary. Only 4 people emailed to adopt them, including a Washington lobbyist and a representative from SRP. Yet, the 2012 codes were adopted.
Three Council Members have been opposed to unnecessary codes. These Council Members include: Victor Petersen, Jared Taylor, and Eddie Cook. It will be unfortunate if Mayor John Lewis and the other three Council Members continue to listen to and obey the direction of staff (aka so-called "experts") who want to grow their bureaucracy and inflict more regulations on Gilbert families. Unless you can break through their resistance,Mayor Lewis and three council members will be mezmerized by the Planners, Building Examiners, Inspectors, and Code Enforcers.
Mayor Lewis and the other three Council Members also listen to organizations such as the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Alliance. Some of their members stand to make big bucks because their products will be forced on Gilbert families. Their products will have to be purchased by law. (Code = Regulation = Law.)
Welcome to Gilbert's Administrative State! Here are the Council members who have demonstrated by their votes that they don't care about you and your goofy rants about Liberty, Freedom, Property Rights, and the Free Market. To them, you are the unheard, unlamented, unwanted. They get really tired of hearing about "the Founders." (Oh, but they will strut and preen at the next "celebration" of Constitution Week USA. Just watch.)
Mayor John Lewis
Vice Mayor Ben Cooper
Council Member Jenn Daniels
Council Member Jordan Ray
Do you think I'm being "harsh" toward these wonderfully "nice" people? Consider how they have been treating their constituents.
The fight against the adoption of unnecessary building codes has been going on for a YEAR! A private business that lobbies for new codes that will gain financially by the codes has a conflict of interest .Power. Control, and Money is what this is all about, Not Safety and Energy/Green.
Rusdon and Gordon Ray haven’t received a single penny for the work they have done to stop these code adoptions. In fact, everything they have done to fight these swarms of unnecessary codes has cost them and their families time, effort, and money. Do you think the Town Council is weary of this issue? How do you think Gordon and Rusdon feel? Not to mention the many families of the tradesmen and builders who have been fighting along with them.
Please inform Gilbert voters how these elected officials "stood up for them" by showing them the voting record of these people who have consistently voted FOR these free market killing codes.
Please email Mayor Lewis and all Council Members asking them to PLEASE VOTE NO to adopting the Green and Energy Codes. They should be voluntary. Councilmembers@GilbertAZ.gov

- 20. Center for Biological Diversity: Liars and Defamers
The Center for Biological Diversity is an evil organization that was proven guilty in 2005 of making "false, unfair, libelous, and defamatory statements against Jim Chilton, a Southern Arizona rancher."
Jim Chilton and his family were awarded $100,000 in actual damages and $500,000 in punitive damages. He planned to use part of the money to pay his lawsuit expenses, and donate the rest to the Arizona Cattle Growers Association to "promote truth and responsibility with respect to cattle grazing issues."
"Our opponents don't use science. They subvert science," stated Mr. Chilton. "Endangered species are just their tool to raise money and impose their anti-production philosophy." He is incensed over the lost livelihoods of tens of thousands of rural westerners: timber workers, ranchers, and miners who have lost productive well paid employment. "Too many other victims just couldn't defend themselves against relentless attacks by the CBD (Center for Biological Diversity) and Forest Guardians."
"Environmentalists wear people down until they can no longer function," stated a witness.
As Jim Chilton said, "Ranching is not a job. It's a culture. It's a unique western American way of life and a national cultural treasure worthy of preservation."
Dear friends of liberty, the Center for Biological Diversity is one of the many radical environmental groups that has learned how to subvert the legislative process and, between FY2009 - FY2012, fleeced American taxpayers out of over $2 million in their ESA (Endangered Species Act) lawsuits against federal agencies. It's quite a racket. See This is How Radical Environmental Groups Fleece the Taxpayer and Use the Money to Advance Their Agenda.Click here to read more
