A government unloosed from its authorizing document, in open revolt against the principles laid out and defined therein, with the will, intent and ability to execute citizens for trivial offenses, basically parking tickets (oops, forgot to feed the meter on the cattle) is, by definition, a domestic terrorist. The politicians and agents involved in such criminal activity as theft of property (water rights in U.S. v Hage a similar, but much more egregious case than the issue with Cliven Bundy) involving the BLM, determined by the judge to be involved in a criminal conspiracy is the definition of domestic terrorists.
Mr. Reid, those who stand against such criminal acts are called patriots.
To engage in criminal activity with the threat of death and kidnapping (incarceration) to U.S. citizens is domestic terrorism.
But, all of that is really a sideshow. In the main tent is the fact that this government have brutalized its citizens so often, so willingly that word is out, public sentiment is changing. Investor's Business Daily is pointing out the obvious, but at least they are pointing.
In the Constitution, there is no provision for the United States to own any land that is not directly associated with conducting the business of government and provision for military bases and arsenals. There is no provision for national parks, land management, national forests, those are all the legacy of the first round of progressives to invade the halls of government with ill intent to the citizens.
The coming hot war was instigated by the government over one hundred years ago, but only recently, with the total corruption of the government, with politicians in violation of their oaths: stealing lands; stealing water rights; stealing funds; as they have grown more desperate and more despotic as the inevitable bankruptcy of the federal government looms. They have cast off the pretense. The president operates in total disregard for the wishes of the people and the Constitution, refuses to enforce borders, invites criminals into the nation in contravention of Section 8, Clause 4, where it states: To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States. To enforce rules of naturalization on some immigrants and not on others violates the "uniform rule" requirement.
The list of offenses and abuses of the government are endless. The creation of bureaucracies headed by the unelected who wield the entire power of the federal government including the power to execute citizens in the open for minor offenses is the step that went far, far beyond anything conceivable as "necessary and proper" largely because Bureau of Land Management agents armed and trained to execute citizens is neither necessary, nor proper. The entire agency is extra-constitutional and therefore any action against the citizens of any state is the act of terrorism.
Defense against tyranny and terrorism cannot, Mr. Reid, be terrorism. It must be something else, I don't know, lets call it: Patriotism.
