The mainstream media is officially having a full-on field day with the Vegas shooters’ online postings, demonizing the patriot movement and basically anyone critical of the government.
In case you haven’t seen the news, the main report is that 31-year-old Jerad Miller and his 22-year-old wife Amanda shot two police in cold blood at a Las Vegas CiCi’s Pizza, left a Gadsen “Don’t Tread on Me” flag on one cop’s body and a Nazi swastika on the other’s before heading over to the Walmart across the street and yelling about how the revolution had begun.
If it sounds really stupid, that’s because it is.
Today’s reports are highlighting with fervent glee every single detail of the Millers’ anti-government, pro-liberty movement beliefs as per their Facebook posts and YouTube likes.
Take a look at just a few of today’s headlines:
Las Vegas Cop-Killers Hated Government and Left Swastika on Body
Vegas Shooters’ Facebook Pages Reveal Support of Bundy Ranch, Gun Rights
The Chilling Anti-Government, Cliven Bundy-Loving Facebook Posts of the Alleged Las Vegas Shooters
Those with even more obvious agendas are going even further:
That particular headline is from “The New Civil Rights Movement” site which posted a link to an even more telling headline:
The site Mediaite reported, “Jerad’s ‘likes’ include such conservative pages as Conservative America, Conservative Daily, Mr. Conservative, Ron Paul, the NRA, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks, all in addition to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Amanda’s included some of the same along with the Drudge Report and Hobby Lobby.” (Their emphasis, not mine.)
Wow. Shooter Amanda Miller even liked Hobby Lobby. That’s pretty hardcore. The outlet then added this post from Miller’s Facebook page:
Mother Jones took a similar reporting route with, “Jerad Miller’s Facebook ‘likes’ include the NRA, American Patriot Media Network, Support the 2nd Amendment, The Patriot Party, Rand Paul 2016, Ron Paul, the Washington Examiner, Legalize Weed, Draft Judge Andrew Napolitano, the Heritage Foundation, FreedomWorks, American Crossroads, and Allen West,” discussing how the Millers rallied behind “cause celebre in the so-called ‘patriot’ movement” Cliven Bundy whose standoff with the Bureau of Land Management made national headlines this past April.
Cliven Bundy’s son Ammon told the Associated Press that Jerad and Amanda were maybe the only two people out of hundreds who came to protest at the Bundy Ranch who were actually asked to leave:
He said that while details were still sketchy, the Millers’ conduct was the problem. He called the couple “very radical” and said they did not “align themselves” with the protest’s main issues.
“Not very many people were asked to leave,” he said. “I think they may have been the only ones.” (source)
In the article, “Las Vegas ‘revolution’ shooters ID’d as right-wing conspiracy nuts with a deathwish,” Raw Story included this post reportedly from Jerad’s Planet Infowars page:
“How the Gov. spends billions of dollars on the war on drugs and all these missles and bombs to kill people, I think about all that money that could do to helping people instead. Creating jobs, creating happy, healthy people. I dont want a hand out. I just need a foundation to stand on. One that wont be pulled out from under me as soon as i step up on it.” [sic]
Raw story went on to report, “The same InfoWars user complained that chemtrails were causing higher levels of respiratory illness, including strep throat and ‘bronchidus,’ and he also warned that ‘Im sure the floride isnt helping much either.’”
And the following excerpt about liberty and fascism Jerad Miller posted in early May is everywhere:
“There is no greater cause to die for than liberty. To die for that cause is easy, to live for it is another matter. I will willingly die for liberty. Death, in a sense is freedom from tyranny. Death, is the easy way out. Most notably is the “suicide by cop” routine. Yes, standing before despots is dangerous and most likely does not end well for you. I know this, my wife knows this. Soon they will come for us, because they don’t like what we think, and what we say. They don’t like the fact that we, simply will not submit to fascist rule. We don’t have much, but we are willing to sacrifice everything…….for you, for your freedoms. Even if you wouldn’t let us have ours. We know who we are and what we stand for, do you?”
…along with the fact that Miller discussed people “waking up” and the pro-liberty movement images he posted online, including those expressing that the 2nd Amendment is about freedom and that Democrats want to end the Benghazi investigation.
Outlet after outlet has exploited the Millers’ pro-liberty, pro-Cliven Bundy, pro-tea party, pro-Ron/Rand Paul, pro-Constitution, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-NRA, pro-”so-called Patriot Movement,” anti-Obama, anti-government, anti-police state, anti-chemtrail, anti-fluoride, anti-drug war, anti-U.S. War on Terror, anti-fascism stance to the hilt.
Essentially, the entire kitchen sink of the alternative media and every government-admonished “crazy conspiracy theory” has been thrown together into one highly publicized shooting.
How bad is it? It’s to the point that NBC posted the following pictures with the tagline, “Jerad Miller and Amanda Miller pose for a mug shot on an unspecified date and location.”
While Jerad Miller has been arrested multiple times, the likely reason Amanda’s “mug shot” is from “an unspecified date and location” is because it’s not a mug shot at all, but one of her personal photographs taken in Las Vegas that’s been brightened and had the background Photoshopped out:
When blown up, you can even see remnants of some of the red writing that’s been left around her hair by the sloppy Photoshop job.
The second picture was posted up at Heavy.com under the headline “Jerad & Amanda Miller: The Pictures You Need to See” and Heavy is right, because I needed that much more proof that this tragedy is being pushed for all the political agenda furthering it is possibly worth…and more.
The level of propaganda is staggering.
Now if you have any legitimate criticism of the government in pretty much any area discussed in the alternative media, no matter how valid your points or beliefs may be, get ready to get lumped right in with ‘crazy right wing neo-Nazi white supremacist conspiracy theorist cop killers’.
Mere minutes after posting the above video on this story, someone already called me a “terrorist” just for pointing this straw man out.
Jerad Miller’s Facebook page can be found here. Do you know anyone who has a similar-looking Facebook page?
I just shared this picture from former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura’s page:
Wonder what the mainstream media and those who hand them their agenda would have to say about that today?
(For the record, my first guess is that Senator Dianne Feinstein would say it’s one more reason that alternative media journalists should have their First Amendment rights straight up revoked — one of her more recent pet projects along with attacking the 2nd Amendment every chance she gets.)

A dramatic development in the saga surrounding rancher Cliven Bundy, the FBI has entered the case.
The 8 News NOW I-Team has learned that FBI agents have started an investigation into the events surrounding a potentially deadly showdown one month ago.
It is one thing for Cliven Bundy and his supporters to square off against an assortment of Bureau of Land Management employees. It is quite another when the FBI enters the picture, and that is exactly what has happened.
The I-Team has confirmed that FBI agents have launched a formal investigation into alleged death threats, intimidation and possible weapons violations that culminated with a dangerous showdown on April 12, and the first people to be interviewed by FBI agents are Metro Police, starting with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillispie.
Federal employees suspended their roundup of Cliven Bundy’s cattle, following a confrontation outside the BLM compound near Bunkerville. At the urging of Metro Police, Bundy’s cattle were released, but BLM’s new director announced the matter wasn’t over and would be resolved, one way or another. We now know what that means.
Last week, the I-Team talked with Metro officers who intervened to protect the lives of federal employees from the 400 or so Bundy supporters and armed militia members. Officers told the I-Team they feared for their lives that day because of the assembled firepower, and because many in the crowd had pointed weapons at officers, taunted them, told them they should be ready to die.
Assistant Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who was left in charge of the Metro contingent by Sheriff Doug Gillespie, told the I-Team that such alleged behavior would be the subject of a criminal investigation.
“The federal authorities are conducting an investigation and I am pretty confident it is going to go into the future,” Lombardo said.
“(Would there be consequences for somebody there on video tape, on a news camera pointing a gun at a Metro officer, pointing a gun at a federal ranger?) Yes, there is definitely going to be consequences, definitely. That is unacceptable behavior. If we let it go, it would continue into the future,” Lombardo said.
The I-Team has learned that Lombardo was interviewed by FBI agents earlier this week. The first person to be questioned by the FBI team was Lombardo’s boss, Sheriff Gillespie.
The sheriff confirmed to 8 News NOW that he was asked about what he saw the day of the showdown, whether guns were pointed at metro officers. He declined to say what he said to the agents.
FBI agents also spoke to an entire squad of Metro officers, who were on the scene to act as a buffer between the crowd and the BLM. Bundy supporters have insisted in emails and calls to 8 News NOW that no one in the crowd pointed weapons at BLM or Metro, but officers told the I-Team that is exactly what they saw, that many with guns set up behind women and children.
“It is not a rumor. When we first got out there and made a left to divide I-15, that is all you saw. You saw kids and women and horses in the backdrop and then men with guns, laying on the ground, in the back of pickup trucks. We’re going, ‘wow, this would never happen in Las Vegas,’ But it was there. That is not a rumor. It is reality and I saw it with my own eyes,” Metro Police Sgt. Tom Jenkins said.
Sgt. Jenkins has been interviewed by the FBI. A second squad is expected to be interviewed by week’s end. The bureau does not confirm or deny the existence of any investigation but the I-Team has confirmed from multiple sources that a criminal investigation is underway.
It is illegal to point loaded weapons at federal agents, and most people know what would happen, if a suspect pointed a gun at a Metro officer in the Las Vegas valley.
Bundy supporters have been adamant in saying no weapons were aimed at the feds or police, that the BLM rangers were the ones pointing guns.
From the sound of things, they will be given the chance to prove those allegations because the FBI is coming their way.

Cliven Bundy has been battling the federal government for the last 20 years. The government claims his cattle have been illegally grazing on federal land – land that has been in the Bundy family since 1880s.
The Bureau of Land Management has been trying to make Bundy pay to use “their” land since 1993. The agency claims this is about protecting a desert tortoise and feds raided the Bundy Ranch under that guise. That’s interesting, though, considering that they had no problem massacring Bundy’s cattle.
Those who are paying attention know what the government’s true agenda is.
Yesterday, the mainstream media went crazy over comments that Bundy made that were allegedly racist.
The New York Times and other media outlets conveniently left out parts of video footage of Bundy talking about the government’s history of mistreatment of black and Mexican people and uses them as examples of how government oppresses people. His comments were spun to make him appear racist.
Here is the full, unedited version of Bundy’s commentary:
Today Bundy issued the following press release about the allegations of racism and what his comments meant:
FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE – BUNDY RANGE WAR – 4-25-14
What I am saying is that all we Americans are trading one form of slavery for another. All of us are in some measure slaves of the federal government. Through their oppressive tactics of telling the ranchers how many cows they can have on their land, and making that number too low to support a ranch, the BLM has driven every rancher in Clark County off the land, except me. The IRS keeps the people of America in fear, and makes us all work about a third or a half of the year before we have earned enough to pay their taxes. This is nothing but slavery from January through May. The NSA spies on us and collects our private phone calls and emails. And the government dole which many people in America are on, and have been for much of their lives, is dehumanizing and degrading. It takes away incentive to work and self respect. Eventually a person on the dole becomes a ward of the government, because his only source of income is a dole from the government. Once the government has you in that position, you are its slave.
I am trying to keep Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream alive. He was praying for the day when he and his people would be free, and he could say I’m free, free at last, thank God I’m free at last! But all of us here America, no matter our race, are having our freedom eroded and destroyed by the federal government because of its heavy handed tactics. The BLM, the IRS, the NSA–all of the federal agencies are destroying our freedom. I am standing up against their bad and unconstitutional laws, just like Rosa Parks did when she refused to sit in the back of the bus. She started a revolution in America, the civil rights movement, which freed the black people from much of the oppression they were suffering. I’m saying Martin Luther King’s dream was not that Rosa could take her rightful seat in the front of the bus, but his dream was that she could take any seat on the bus and I would be honored to sit beside her. I am doing the same thing Rosa Parks did–I am standing up against bad laws which dehumanize us and destroy our freedom. Just like the Minutemen at Lexington and Concord, we are saying no to an oppressive government which considers us to be slaves rather than free men.
I invite all people in America to join in our peaceful revolution to regain our freedom. That is how America was started, and we need to keep that tradition alive.
Cliven D. Bundy
First Bundy had to defend his ranch – his family’s livelihood – from government tyrants, and now he has to defend himself from the distorted character assassination issued by the mainstream media.

Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more? Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing. It is commonly known as “Agenda 21″, although many names and labels are used for this particular philosophy. Basically, those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet, and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of “sustainable development”. In their vision of the future, the human population will be greatly reduced and human activity will be limited to strictly regulated urban areas and travel corridors. The rest of the planet will be left to nature. To achieve this goal, a massive transfer of land from private landowners to the federal government will be necessary.
So the conflict between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the BLM is really just the tip of the iceberg. The reality is that the BLM has their eyes on much bigger prizes.
For example, Breitbart is reporting that the BLM is looking at grabbing 90,000 privately-held acres along the Texas/Oklahoma border…
After the recent Bundy Ranch episode by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Texans are becoming more concerned about the BLM’s focus on 90,000 acres along a 116 mile stretch of the Texas/Oklahoma boundary. The BLM is reviewing the possible federal takeover and ownership of privately-held lands which have been deeded property for generations of Texas landowners.
Sid Miller, former Texas State Representative and Republican candidate for Texas Agriculture Commissioner, has since made the matter a campaign issue to Breitbart Texas.
“In Texas,” Miller says, “the BLM is attempting a repeat of an action taken over 30 years ago along the Red River when Tommy Henderson lost a federal lawsuit. The Bureau of Land Management took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.”
Needless to say, officials down in Texas are not pleased about this. In fact, just check out what the attorney general of Texas is saying…
Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab.
“I am deeply concerned about the notion that the Bureau of Land Management believes the federal government has the authority to swoop in and take land that has been owned and cultivated by Texas landowners for generations,” General Abbott wrote. “The BLM’s newly asserted claims to land along the Red River threaten to upset long-settled private property rights and undermine fundamental principles—including the rule of law—that form the foundation of our democracy. Yet, the BLM has failed to disclose either its full intentions or the legal justification for its proposed actions. Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box.”
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas, General Abbott said, “This is the latest line of attack by the Obama Administration where it seems like they have a complete disregard for the rule of law in this country …And now they’ve crossed the line quite literally by coming into the State of Texas and trying to claim Texas land as federal land. And, as the Attorney General of Texas I am not going to allow this.”
Does the federal government actually need more land?
As I mentioned above, the feds already own more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states…
Nevada: 84.5 percent
Alaska: 69.1 percent
Utah: 57.4 percent
Oregon: 53.1 percent
Idaho: 50.2 percent
Arizona: 48.1 percent
California: 45.3 percent
Wyoming: 42.4 percent
New Mexico: 41.8 percent
The federal government does not need more land. But there is an obsession to grab more so that the dictates of Agenda 21 can be implemented.
The map that I have posted below is a simulation of what the endgame of Agenda 21 might look like. If these radical environmentalists get their way, the only areas that will be allocated for normal human use will be the areas in green…
If you do not go along with the “sustainable development” agenda, you risk being labeled a “threat” to be dealt with.
For example, Senator Harry Reid has used the label “domestic terrorists” to describe those that showed up to support Cliven Bundy at his ranch.
Reid could have used lots of other labels. But he specifically chose to call them terrorists. And considering what the law allows the feds to do to “terrorists”, that is quite chilling.
And don’t think that if you just stay quiet that you won’t get labeled as a “terrorist”. In fact, there is a very good chance that you already fit several government criteria for being a terrorist. Just check out the list below. It comes from my previous article entitled “72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered ‘Potential Terrorists’ In Official Government Documents“…
Do any of those criteria apply to you?
If so, then you are a “potential terrorist” according to the U.S. government.
We live at a time when the federal government is becoming increasingly oppressive. Just consider the following excerpt from a recent article by John W. Whitehead…
It’s not just the Cliven Bundys of the world who are being dealt with in this manner. Don Miller, a 91-year-old antiques collector, recently had his Indiana home raided by the FBI, ostensibly because it might be in the nation’s best interest if the rare and valuable antiques and artifacts Miller had collected over the course of 80 years were cared for by the government. Such tactics carried out by anyone other than the government would be considered grand larceny, and yet the government gets a free pass.
In the same way, the government insists it can carry out all manner of surveillance on us—listen in on our phone calls, read our emails and text messages, track our movements, photograph our license plates, even enter our biometric information into DNA databases—but those who dare to return the favor, even a little, by filming potential police misconduct, get roughed up by the police, arrested, charged with violating various and sundry crimes.
This was not what our founders intended.
Our liberties and freedoms are being eroded a little bit more with each passing day, and most Americans don’t even seem to care.
In the end, we will pay a great price for our apathy.

The ongoing Bundy Ranch controversy is a test, and we’re the ones being tested.
Never before in human history have a people just voluntarily laid down their liberty and property without bloodshed. The statists know this, which is why they’ve spent the last generation investing heavily in conquering media, academia, and pop culture. They’re hoping those influential platforms can condition us to become so numbed out and dumbed down that we won’t even notice when our liberty is gone. Or that by the time we do it will be too late.
Bundy Ranch is a test case to see if their plans have sufficiently silenced us or not, because in this day and age of alternative media and viral marketing they can’t rely on mainstream media to spin another Waco or Randy Weaver story for them. Especially since the Bundy family are more sympathetic figures than either of those two stories were back then, and the country has become much less trusting of government than it was back then as well.
The statists want to see if there’s still enough of us willing to stand up to them if they try and apply their boot to our throat. In Nevada over the weekend they didn’t get the answer they were hoping for, obviously, so they have decided to stand down. Translation: they’ll wait us out until we’re bored with the story and moved on to something else, and that’s when the hammer will drop. So expect another “coming out” party for a pro athlete or a celebrity sex scandal soon to replenish the Idiocracy.
No, I’m not saying they plant these stories or make them up for the purposes of distracting us, because that would be giving these people way too much credit. If they were capable of such subterfuge, they would’ve given us an Obamacare website that worked. But I am saying they will attach themselves to one of these stories once they occur in order to distract us from what’s really going on.
Case in point: Google “Russia Ukraine” and about 1.46 million results show up. Google “Miley Cyrus twerking” and over 30 million do. Like any good drug dealer would, they have conditioned us to prefer what’s bad for us, and then they dutifully supply it to us in bulk once it becomes available.
The Bundy Ranch showdown is a shot across our bow; as were the “Barry-cades” during the government slim down last fall; as was the Toomey-Manchin gun grab last year; as are a lot of the things you’re seeing in the news these days.
See, the statists are growing impatient.
They know the failures of their statist champion in the White House threatens to kill their chances in 2014, and perhaps even 2016. They can see their overreaches have resulted in a backlash from the American people. More and more families are opting out of their government indoctrination centers masquerading as schools. Faith and values-driven entertainment is re-asserting itself at the box office. Perhaps the best organized political demographic in the emerging generation are anti-statist libertarians.
Regardless of their false bravado, the statists are concerned their window of opportunity may be closing here. Despite a record number of anti-constitutional actions from the current regime in the White House, they still haven’t been able to disarm us or impose the blanket amnesty for illegals they were counting on, either.
Previously harmless groups like Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the Poor are hitting them back in the courts and the court of public opinion.
It appears the only people left in America still afraid of these statists all happen to be running the Republican Party.
Thus, they must up the ante, like they recently tried at Bundy Ranch. But not only did they run into an ornery cattle rancher, they also stirred up a hornet’s nest of peeved patriots from around the country that have had their Howard Beale moment. They’re mad as Hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore.
However, it won’t stop here.
The statists have only been able to make the gains they’ve made because our complacency allowed it. As Glenn Beck has said, these statists are really just “patient communists.” They will keep coming and coming; awaiting the day that when they poke and prod us we finally lack the willpower to respond accordingly. Unless we display the same consistency and courage of conviction we cannot defeat them.
This is what Thomas Jefferson meant when he said “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”

I have to hand it to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), at least on this one statement, he got it right. Yes, Patriots showed up in Bunkerville to help protest the Bureau of Land Management’s land grab and protect Cliven Bundy and his ranch, and yes, it’s a sign that Harry Reid, Democrats and tyranny are all in big trouble.
Appearing on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, Reid berated the Bundy family and protesters saying, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.”
“They knew what they were doing,” he continued. “They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact, one retired sheriff from Arizona posted he put women and children, so that they would get hit first.”
“If there ever was an example of people who were domestic violent terrorist wannabes, these are the guys, and I think that we should call it that way,” Reid concluded. “We have a situation that is really untoward.”
Obviously Harry Reid would have opposed the Founding Fathers in their struggle against tyranny. They met the tyrannical government of their day with arms, and they not only bore their arms, but they used them against the aggressors.
Reid was then rebuked by Senator Dean Heller (R-NV). He said, “What Senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots. We have a very different view on this.”
“These people think they’re patriots, and they’re not. If they’re patriots, we’re in big trouble,” Reid retorted.
“It’s a pretty broad brush when you have boy scouts there. You have veterans at the event. You have grandparents at the event. And these are people who, as long as they’re not promoting violence, in my opinion…” said Heller as Reid interrupted with disgust.
“Promoting violence?” Reid interjected. “There were sniper rifles. Talk to Sheriff Gillespie – automatic weapons. That’s grandmothers? That’s boy scouts? I hope not, because we got more problems with boy scouts than whether they can have gay leaders, if that’s the case.”
Reid wants to hide the fact that snipers were from the federal government pointing their weapons at unarmed protesters and the Bundy family.
Senator Heller said that he took “more issue with BLM coming in with a military army of individuals with snipers. I was talking to individuals at the event, and to have your own government with sniper lenses on you – it made a lot of people very uncomfortable.”
Senator Heller told the hosts of the show that he would be calling for hearings on Capitol Hill to see why the situation was handled in the thuggish manner that it was.
Of course, Harry Reid appealed to the criminal element in Washington, namely Attorney General Eric Holder, along with Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie,
Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and FBI chief James Comey as to what should be done.
As far as I’m concerned, we should be thinking of what should be done to eliminate huge sections of the tyrannical federal government and all those such as Senator Harry Reid, who applaud the heavy handed measures of the BLM against American citizens who have not committed a crime, but will push legislation that is unlawful and unconstitutional for criminal illegal aliens to come into the country and provide them with the fruit of America’s labors, as well as citizenship.
