Reporter and political prisoner Pete Santilli of The Pete Santilli Show dropped a bombshell from jail earlier this week, claiming that once this information becomes public, federal government officials might panic.
In a recorded statement by Deb Jordan, Pete’s co-host, Santilli first explains that, “The dirt at Bundy Ranch is in Clark County. Clark County has always been a part of the State of Nevada and is not federal land in any way shape or form, period.”
“It is documented and we have the documentation. We will be going through the court system appropriately, but the entire Bundy Ranch debacle and what Cliven Bundy said on that stage to that Sheriff… unfortunately, these buffoon people that the US government’s US Attorney’s Office actually put on the record that Nevada, part of the Hidalgo Treaty and all this stuff is absolute lunacy that they are lining us all up about an incident that took place in Clark County Nevada that has never been part of federal lands since 1866.”
Santilli is right. According to Clark County Nevada’s website, on May 4, 1866, Nevada extended its southern border into Arizona Territory, reaching to where the Colorado River meets the California Border. However, on January 17, 1867, the Nevada State legislature voted to extend its southern border, which includes what is today’s Clark County.
The land of Clark County is legally part of the State of Nevada; it is not federal land.
Prior to that, according to the website, “10/31/1864 Nevada becomes a state during the Civil War. Area now encompassed by Clark County is not part of original state of Nevada but is part of Arizona Territory.”
Clark County came into existence on July 1, 1909.
Of all of the records provided on the Clark County website, none mention what the Constitution requires for the federal government to acquire land in the state (the approval of the State legislature.)
To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of Particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings– (Emphasis added).
Santilli attempted to convey this message on Monday at his hearing where he left the courtroom saying: “I’m a journalist. This is what they do in Communist China!” Instead of being released until trial, the judge ruled against him, and the Bundy men. Now, Cliven Bundy has filed suit against Judge Gloria Navarro, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, and Sen. [score]Harry Reid[/score] and his son, Rory Reid, for violating a myriad of rights that are to be protected according to the Constitution. Other representatives of the people took issue with the tyranny of the feds during the Bundy Ranch siege.
Sen. [score]Dean Heller[/score] blasted Sen. [score]Harry Reid[/score]’s comments about those who supported the Bundy’s as being domestic terrorists, “What Sen. Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots. We have a very different view on this.”
Governor Brian Sandoval ripped into the Bureau of Land Management over the issue as well.
“No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans,” the Republican governor said. “The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”
One can hope that this information would be spread far and wide and educate the people as to what is really taking place with the unconstitutional federal land grab.
