The Peacemaker and the Psychopath

The Psycho (Love) is on the left; Peacekeeper Dave Bundy is in the center.

Dave Bundy was working on his home in Delta, Utah, when a caravan of at least 20 federal vehicles invaded his property last March. The vehicles decanted a platoon of FBI personnel, some of them clad in battle dress and carrying assault weapons. In what must have been a disappointment to them, Bundy – who wasn’t armed – surrendered without offering the Feds a pretext to dispose of him as they had LaVoy Finicum a few weeks earlier. 

Bundy had been indicted on federal conspiracy charges for his role in de-escalating the standoff between his family and the BLM in Bunkerville, Nevada in April 2014. At that time, too, Bundy had not been carrying a gun. He was armed only with his determination to prevent bloodshed as he conducted shuttle diplomacy between the Bundys and their supporters, on the one hand, and the Feds who had stolen the Bundy family’s cattle. His conduct earned the appreciation of then-Clark County Undersheriff Joseph Lombardo, who negotiated with him. 

Several days earlier, Bundy had been beaten bloody by the BLM’s khaki-clad chekists while he was standing at the side of a road video-recording their confiscation of his father’s cattle. After suffering that criminal assault he was abducted by the BLM and detained for a night on a spurious charge of obstruction, which was dismissed the following day.

Dave Bundy’s role at Bunkerville was that of a peacemaker. He is now in jail awaiting trial on charges that could result in an 80-year prison term.

Where Bundy is a peacemaker, Dan Love, the BLM Special Agent in Charge of the Bunkerville operation, is a bloody-handed psychopath whose appetite for escalation has made him notorious even among his comrades. His operation in Bunkerville was a humiliating failure – which is why the Regime, in utterly predictable fashion, has placed Love in charge of the BLM’s newly minted, nation-wide Security and Intelligence division.
This promotion is an unambiguous display of arrogant hostility toward residents of rural lands in the west – and toward sheriffs and other local officials in Utah and Nevada who have dealt with Love in recent years. Love’s Brownshirts have routinely ignored jurisdictional limits in southern Utah, detaining – which is to say, abducting – local citizens without probable cause, intimidating tourists, and harassing ranchers. 

In 2012 the Utah state legislature enacted a measure forbidding BLM cadres from pretending to enforce state and local laws – a tactic often used to justify the agency’s abusive behavior – and imposing criminal penalties for “impersonating an officer” when BLM personnel exceeded their roles as defined in federal statutes. Love retaliated by cancelling BLM contracts with five counties that pay sheriffs for the privilege of patrolling land claimed by the Feds. This was a gratuitous gesture of unfiltered contempt: By the time the contracts were annulled, a federal judge had issued an injunction against the bill, prompting the legislature to repeal it.

Love’s federal supremacy uber alles mindset nearly precipitated a slaughter at Bunkerville, an outcome that would not have surprised former BLM official Steve Martin. In late 2012, Martin was present at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico when Love giddily outlined the rustling operation planned for Bunkerville. Martin later told the High Country News that Love’s plan was “missing a key ingredient: cooperation with the county sheriff.”
Swaggering doofus Love and his troops.
Then-Sheriff Doug Gillespie didn’t intervene in the matter until well into the standoff.  Love’s mismanagement of the affair and misreading of the tactical situation – at one point, he placed the armored mouth-breathers under his command in a “kill zone” – would have resulted in avoidable deaths were it not, in large measure, for the diplomatic efforts of Dave Bundy. 

So, naturally, Bundy is now behind bars awaiting a trial at which Love will be a star prosecution witness. Love’s promotion will be used to fortify whatever credibility he might possess in the eyes of the jury. The Feds will be very careful to foreclose inquiries into Love’s background and employment history.

Energy & Environment Daily, a publication very sympathetic to the Regime’s regulatory agencies, notes that the BLM refused to “answer basic questions about Love’s professional resume – when he was hired, his age, where he has previously worked and his law enforcement qualifications.” It is known that for four years prior to being hired by the BLM, Love was employed as a federal air marshal. He received his indoctrination at the TSA’s air marshal training center, which proudly displays the motto: “Dominate. Intimidate. Control.”

By combining a clown car with the proverbial short bus, we would create an ideal departmental vehicle for the Air Marshals Service. Love’s blend of arrogance and violence is typical of the personnel who have been hired as BLM enforcement officers since 9/11.

“We brought in people who told their buddies in Border Patrol or wherever else, `Hey, come to the BLM, there’s a lot of kick-ass stuff going on here,’” laments Martin, who joined the agency before it became militarized. At the time, he recalls, “we weren’t marshals, we weren’t the FBI, ATF, or DEA. The public looked at us as rangers.”

After being deposited by Leviathan’s cloaca in Salt Lake City, Love immediately set out to distinguish himself by orchestrating a covert operation called Operation Cerberus Action that supposedly targeted illegal trade in archeological artifacts. He enlisted a suspected petty offender and alcoholic named Ted Gardiner as an informant/provocateur and gave him roughly one-third of a million dollars stolen from taxpayers to buy artifacts from southern Utah residents.  This led to a pre-dawn paramilitary raid in Blanding, Utah, involving hundreds of battle-armed personnel from the BLM and other agencies.

James Redd, a well-respected 60-year-old physician, was detained by BLM and FBI agents at his home and interrogated for five hours. After being told that he faced a felony charge, Dr. Redd committed suicide the following day. Ted Gardiner – most likely out of insurmountable shame from defiling himself by associating with Love and his ilk – did likewise.
Worth a man's life?
The only tangible evidence of a “crime” on Redd’s part was his possession of a “bird effigy” – a single bead roughly a centimeter long – that was dishonestly appraised by the Feds as worth $1,000. This over-valuation was necessary in order to charge Redd with a felony. The bauble’s actual value was roughly $75.

“He had nothing to do with artifacts or trading,” points out Jay Redd, the son of the accomplished physician whom Love drove to suicide. “He was walking along and picks up this dinky bead off the ground [in a video-recorded conversation with Love’s informant]. They are laughing about it because it’s so insignificant…. He never tries to sell or trade anything. He wasn’t arrested for trafficking; it was for possessing. Dr. Redd is dead for possessing a tiny little bead. My dad is dead for a false felony charge.” 

The “conspiracy” charges that could be used to steal the rest of Dave Bundy’s life are just as spurious as the one that drove Dr. Redd to suicide. Even if he prevails in the show trial planned for early next year, Bundy will suffer several months of pre-trial confinement as punishment for expressing opinions that a federal judge found offensive. 
BLM Brownshirts assault Bundy.
A few weeks ago, U.S. Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach has denied Bundy’s motion requesting pre-trial release. The uncontested facts cited in his motion  demonstrate that he has no criminal record, that he neither committed violence nor incited it at Bunkerville, and that on many occasions he has cooperated with the BLM in efforts to battle range fires (including an incident just a few months before the standoff in Nevada). 

Judge Ferenbach stipulated to all of these facts – and yet ruled that Bundy must be kept in a cage as  a “danger to the community” because of his attitude toward the federal government, as displayed by an instance in which he referred to it as a "foreign entity."

Bundy’s description is an unacceptably mild critique of a depraved regime that imprisons peacemakers and promotes psychopaths.

Dominate. Intimidate. Control.

it is astounding that this can be a motto for any govt agency in a place that refers to itself as 'the land of the free'.

as to the featured 'employee of we, the people', one need look no further to find the result of granting too much power to any human

that he is tolerated - leaving for a moment that he is rewarded - by his 'employer' says much about the employer itself, as well as what his employer deems 'acceptable' behavior.

when one considers that not only is he tolerated, but rewarded for such egregious acts, it becomes evident that a dark, fetid cloud
has settled upon the land.

You know I really wish we had 50 million WNG in the USSA. Seriously, he has always been one of my favorite writers, back when he was with the JBS. He took the TRUTH too seriously for them. I don't like the way the Mormon church has turned over the years, was never one of them, but I've met a handful of REAL Christians, by their actions, over the years and, oddly enough, two of the handful were Mormons, now whether they were active or not I don't know.

The USSA government is the #1 ENEMY of heartland Americans. Not Putin, Not Assad of Syria.

And "hate crimes" aka "Thought Crimes" show you that the government of America is not what it is supposed to be it is a Bolshevik country. We shall leave the perpetrators of this throughout the world for each reader to determine for himself.

WNG, you are, truly a PATRIOT.

This doesn't surprise me at all. The people of the USA told the Lord Jesus Christ to get out of the country in exchange for the State allowing us to sin and commit idolatry for so long that now the devil and his human agents have come to roost.

The only hope for this place is to convert as many people by open air preaching and that's fire and brimstone preaching, to cause the sinner to look up into heaven and repent, be converted and live for God. Right now this country is filled with unsaved civilians and unsaved "cops" and each view each other with hatred--that is normal for selfish sinners to do. They have rejected the God of Heaven and Earth and therefore by default worship the "god of this world, Lucifer":

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." John 8:44

There was a third suicide in the Indian Artifacts farce, too. ---->

"On Friday, a second defendant, Steven L. Shrader of Santa Fe, N.M., was found dead of two self-inflicted gunshot wounds behind an elementary school in DeKalb County, Ill., according to the authorities there. Mr. Shrader, 56, had turned himself in to law enforcement officials in Albuquerque after being served a warrant in the case."

Good story. Tragedy for all involved in the BLM rampage. Haste the day.

There has not been much media coverage of a neighbor of mine, who the feds have arrested and are now trying for his involvement in the Bundy Ranch standoff... I wish all the best for former marine and freedom fighter Jerry DeLemus...

According to The Portsmouth Patch, former N.H. GOP chair Jack Kimball, who claimed to have spoken to Rep. Susan DeLemus about the arrest, wrote on Facebook, “She said that the FBI just rolled up with lots of vehicles and Agents who were in tactical gear. They forced their way into Jerry Delemus and Sue’s condo with weapons drawn and arrested Jerry and took him away.”

Kimball characterized Jerry DeLemus as “a good and Patriotic Marine” who “is now being prosecuted for standing up for Liberty.” He called for “New Hampshire patriots” to “protest this tyranny in the most visible way possible.”

Will dismissal of the "intimidation of federal agents with firearms" charges from the Malheur Co. incident apply to nearly identical charges against those at the Nevada cattle rescue incident?

Our computer left us, so must fiddle out a comment on this tiny tablet. We are ever nearer to a state of absolute noncommunication. The snare is sprung!

Hi Will,

This is concerning the Twin situation. I couldn't find an e-mail link to send the Chief of Police statement to you. The boys were from Iraq and Sudan and had lived in the US less than 2 years.

Please keep on blogging and keep us informed of things in Idaho.
