The Heart of the Constitutional Battle
One of the last ranchers in Nevada. The last one in Clark County/The Mohave Desert. Think about that one.
Is a man of men! He is truly the American Cowboy. Cliven IS what you see is what you get. He is a man of his word, if he says he is going to do it…you can count on it. Remember the days when your word was gold and your handshake was as good as a legal document with someone? That is how Cliven lives his life. He believes in The Constitution and the laws it has set forth, he believes in the way The Constitution constructed the government to be, like his friend LaVoy, he knows it works that way.
Cliven is a family man the way God intended. Family first. His wife is his partner in life and they have instilled these same values in each of their children, 14 to be exact. Trust in the Lord, Love your family, Work hard and do what is right, Love thy neighbor. NO MATTER WHAT IT MAY COST YOU!
I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting this dynamic man, I hope to soon, but from talking to his sons and his wife, watching his interviews and reading and following how this man handles himself, I feel that I know him already and when I do finally meet him I will be meeting an old friend and I hope to be able to sit with him and thank him and just TALK. Like I did with his sons and his friend LaVoy.
He comes from a time when what was yours was yours and that was just the way it was. He watched as freedoms slowly started being taken and as America let it happen. When the BLM came in at first it seemed like they were going to help, but then they changed the fine print and Cliven saw this, it gave them more power, where in reality they should have never had any to begin with…enter The Constitution on which Cliven stands rightfully and solidly on. Article 1 Section 8 Clause 17…look it up. You ARE going to need it someday if you don’t stand with Cliven and the others that are standing for their Constitutional rights. This Constitution, these supreme laws are true and right, Cliven knows it and the Government knows it…and it scares them.
You see knowledge scares people in power, because if you don’t know any better you don’t fight back, but if you are informed and fight back they make you a villain, because it SCARES them. They are trying to make a villan out of this American Cowboy (along with his boys, friends and supporters). They tried to “muscle” him out by killing his cattle, by forcing him off HIS rightful land. Cliven stood, but unlike other times they have done this, he did not stand-alone. Hundreds stood with him. On righteous grounds, Constitutional grounds, Godly grounds.
Cliven reminds me a bit of my dad, set in his ways and that is that; which is not always a bad thing, especially when the way you are set in is on the side of right! When this stand took place it was a stand of defense, protection of rights, standing firm and saying no, this is my land, my cattle, my rights and you WILL NOT TAKE THEM. The BLM backed down…until now.
This great man is now in prison. They are charging him with crimes that he in fact did not commit. Conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States; Assault on a federal law enforcement officer; Use and carry of a firearm in relation to a crime of violence; obstruction of the administration of Justice; Interference with commerce by extortion and aiding and abetting.
None of these charges are true.
His offense against the United States? Loving it and believing in The Constitution that our forefathers set forth as a guide for us to live by. Cliven never carried a firearm. You want to know what weapon Cliven had? I heard a story today and it tells of how this Cowboy acted and thought. One of his bodyguards was told to get some diesel; he didn’t ask what for he just did. Cliven and this bodyguard took this diesel and walked to a bulldozer, he intended to use that to take the fence down and free his cattle, he disappeared for a few minutes and came back around, his bodyguard asked him what he was doing and he said praying for direction on what he should do. He climbed up on that dozer and it would not start. Cliven simply said “Well I guess that is my answer.” This is a man of principle that listens to even a higher law than The Constitution. I didn’t know that you could load bullets into a bulldozer. Garbage charges…just like the rest, these charges are what the government should be charged with, look in the mirror much government officials?
This my friends, my fellow patriots and yes even the ones that are speaking out against Cliven and his family, (which by the way, is your 1st amendment right that this man and his family and all of us are fighting for you to keep…you are welcome) is the kind of man I want standing by my side…I know for a FACT that he would stand for me if needed. We need to stand for him.
A man of God, a loving husband, father, grandfather, friend, neighbor, patriot, all American Cowboy, and yes the last man standing…Cliven, I for one will NOT let you stand alone. Thank you for standing, not just for the cattle, not just for the principles of what is right but for ALL of us. So my friends, will you step up, saddle up, speak out, and stand with me?
Cliven and I are waiting…
