(NaturalNews) Desperate to halt all journalism efforts near the Bundy Ranch and "control the narrative" of lies and disinfo, the U.S. government has now banned air traffic over the ranch, preventing journalists from taking any more video of the BLM's makeshift "bovine concentration camps." This post on FAA.gov describes the "temporary flight restrictions" and the police state directive that "only relief aircraft operations under direction of BLM are authorized in the airspace."
This aerial video of the BLM compound and concentration camp was taken by a citizen journalist, and it so utterly outraged the BLM -- which is rapidly becoming the most tyrannical, anti-American agency in the government -- that they claimed emergency authority over the entire ranch, public roads and now the airspace too.
Gary Franchi of Next News Network has also posted this video providing more details on the BLM demand for the FAA to restrict the airspace.
There is, of course, no legitimate reason to deprive U.S. citizens of access to the airspace over the Bundy Ranch. This directive by the BLM has no purpose other than to deprive citizens and journalists their First Amendment rights and block all aerial photos and videography of the BLM compound.
The following photo shows the BLM compound and how they've stuffed hundreds of cattle into tiny "bovine concentration camps" that will inevitably result in their deaths: (the rectangular yards with black shapes inside are the bovine concentration camps where BLM has stuffed hundreds of Bundy's cattle)
There have also been reports of BLM bringing large equipment (excavators and trucks) to the ranch in a move believed to be based on the need to bury the many cattle that BLM has already killed or caused to be killed. According to this article in the Washington Free Beacon, the BLM won't confirm or deny that they've already killed many cattle. "We do have a protocol in terms of when we would euthanize animals," BLM state director Amy Lueders said, "But we donít have any answers at this time in terms of the numbers."
Why would the federal government kill cattle to save tortoises?
BLM ridiculously claims to be conducting this armed siege of the Bundy ranch -- complete with snipers, helicopters, air space restrictions and hundred of armed men who assault protesters -- merely to "save the tortoises."
Yet if this is really about saving animals, it makes no sense to kill cattle to save tortoises.
It's obvious to nearly everyone that other motives are at work here. In an exclusive investigative story, Natural News revealed how the Gold Butte area was used for exploratory energy drilling and could hold untapped energy sources. The BLM already has a track record of auctioning fracking leasing rights to energy companies.
Only a gullible fool -- or the mainstream media -- could possibly believe the government would go to these extraordinary lengths over a tortoise. Never in the history of America has the government called out snipers, helicopters, assault troops and restricted air space to save any animal... not even the American Bald Eagle, much less a reptile.
This Next News Network video also reveals that local cell phone towers may have been shut down by the government to prevent citizen journalists from broadcasting reports. It is not yet confirmed that the government is behind this, but given the air space restrictions that just went in place, it would certainly be consistent with the government's bizarre police state actions we've witnessed so far.
What's clear here is that the U.S. government is treating the Bundy Ranch like a Middle-Eastern war zone.
If this were happening in any other country, the U.S. press would immediately cover it
As I've stated previously, if an armed siege of a cattle rancher were taking place in Mexico, Canada, China, Spain or any other country, it would be front-page news here in the United States. But because this is a U.S. rancher defying the Obama administration's oppressive actions, the U.S. mainstream media has all but pretended this story isn't happening.
If hundreds of armed government soldiers laid siege to offices of a media company, it would be front-page news everywhere. (As it should!)
If hundreds of armed government soldiers laid siege to a gay rights parade, it would be front-page news everywhere. (As it should!)
If hundreds of armed government soldiers laid siege to a black church, it would be front-page news everywhere. (As it should!)
But because the government is laying siege to a Mormon cowboy rancher practicing the very kind of rugged individualism that the left-leaning media despises, this story is being systematically buried or ridiculed. The Washington Post, mouthpiece of the White House, absurdly reported this was about nothing more than "the government trying to move some cattle, and people aren't happy." See, when this armed siege does earn coverage in the media, the coverage is pure government propaganda and lies.
For example, CNN claims that this photo, below, shows Dave Bundy (the innocent bystander) attacking a police dog and assaulting law enforcement officers. HUH?
