“I believe that the FBI was pretending to be members of the news media in order to have lengthy conversations with Ammon and others,” Hill said. “Ammon has nothing to hide, but I still find it troublesome that the FBI would sink to that tactic.”
If you want to understand what’s behind the Bundy Ranch Bunkerville standoff, the imprisonment of the Hammonds, the Oregon standoff, and the growing hatred of the federal Bureau of Land Management in the West, this is a must watch.
The Bureau of Land Management planned the research on the heels of a population estimate that shows about 67,000 wild horses and burros roaming public lands in 10 Western states. The agency said that’s more than double what it considers healthy for the animals and the rangeland.
Last year a group of mostly western senators and members of Congress asked the BLM to outline different scenarios for bringing wild-horse numbers under control. Bluntly, none looks sustainable.
In this case the BLM is to be raising the risk of fire in the Oregon high desert by felling trees without actually clearing them.
“In most instances around the country, county sheriffs departments are accountable to local people. The county sheriff is elected by citizens of the county. There is a level of trust in local law enforcement.”

Bureau of Land Management officials report that there are no confirmed reports of artifact theft in recent weeks. In the past six months, BLM has investigated one incident in the Cedar Mesa area related to the theft of cultural resources, and several incidents of vandalism and graffitti.
Elected law enforcement officers from Nephi to Blanding call him an arrogant and dishonest bully who has little regard for local authority and dodges accountability,
He called himself a constitutional “originalist,” following in the footsteps of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and the late Yale Law School professor and Nixon-era acting Attorney General Robert Bork, as well as some liberals.
