The Bureau of Land Management, which has been noticeably silent since backing off the Bundy Ranch roundup, needs to publicly explain what happened or uninformed and incendiary voices will dominate the discussion, a former, high-ranking agency staffer said. "After watching the news cycle during the last 48 hours it's time for you and others to start putting some pressure on DOI(Department of Interior) /BLM to explain themselves," said Mike Ford, who worked for the BLM for 25 years in five states...
Update: After the commentary posted below, Reid expanded his attack beyond Cliven Bundy's supporters and called the rancher a "domestic terrorist."
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that the armed supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy are "domestic terrorists." "These people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not," Reid said at the Paris hotel of the armed horde that descended on the environs of Mesquite, just northeast of Las Vegas. "They are domestic terrorists. What happened in Mesquite was domestic terrorism." Reid's incendiary words are sure to fan the flames of rightie talkers and GOP politicians trying to exploit...
A federal marshal and local law enforcement should arrest Cliven Bundy and incarcerate him until his cows are removed from public land, a longtime BLM veteran said Wednesday. "There is only one way to resolve this situation given the current state of affairs," said Mike Ford, who spent a quarter-century in the Bureau of Land Management in five states, including as a deputy director in Nevada. "A judge must issue a warrant for Bundy's arrest for failure to comply with two court orders. A...
I sometimes feel the same way about listening to right-wing talk radio the way I do about watching a Kardashian show: Sooner or later the mindlessness might be contagious. Perhaps my ears might start to bleed. Or my brains begin to liquefy. Or maybe I’ll believe everything Alex Jones says. That occurred to me as I listened to 45 minutes worth of Kevin Wall’s KXNT program on Tuesday as he talked to some crazy people and two candidates – they were often difficult to tell apart. To distill: Harry...
The American Gaming Association, which has been hiring staff, is bringing on three new people at high levels. The group, which also has hired Obamaites (partly through a front group) Jim Messina and Ben LaBolt as part of its effort to ensure the web can have gambling, now has: ►Ron Rosenbaum, late of the Sports & Fitness Industry Association, as chief operating officer. ►Brian Cohen, who has worked for the Motion Picture Association of America, as Director of Ally Development.

The BLM made the right decision to stand down after botching the roundup of Cliven Bundy's cattle, but the rancher is no victim, former state and national BLM boss Bob Abbey said. Abbey, who was national Bureau of Land Management director for three years before leaving in 2012 and was Nevada director for eight years, was part of an aborted roundup in 2012 before he left. Here's some of what he told me: On Bundy: Cliven Bundy and his family members are not the victims here. It is the American...
On the last day of his legislative career in 2001, Joe Dini invited me into his inner sanctum. I had been in his office many times to chat, not that he ever gave up much information. But this time was different. This was it. Mr. Speaker – he didn’t have the title anymore but he still was in spirit – did something he had never done before, as if to consecrate this as a special moment. He pulled out a couple of his familiar styrofoam cups, the ones he seemed to have up at the rostrum during most...
