The Cliven Bundy standoff has apparently ended. The Bureau of Land Management has withdrawn all of its helicopters, vehicles and hit men. At least for now.
If the BLM comes after Bundy again, they’ll do a blitzkrieg and come so fast there won’t be time for the public to rally around Bundy. The BLM will probably start by cutting off the surrounding cellphone towers so no one will be able to call for help or broadcast live images of the raid and government brutality. If the government kills anyone or burns their home to the ground, cutting off those cellphone towers (or otherwise seizing or disabling cell phones) will be evidence of government’s intent to commit murder–1st degree, cold-blooded, premeditated murder–without leaving any telltale digital evidence of their crime.
Nevertheless, for now, it’s time for the Bundys and all of their supporters to celebrate–and pray.
