“Domestic Terrorists” Celebrate At Bundy Ranch

Bundy continues to deny charges made Wednesday by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that he failed to pay his taxes. On Wednesday, Bundy told Kevin Wall of KXNT’s “Live and Local” that Reid is in error on the issue of taxes. “He’s totally wrong. I pay taxes—and we’ve always paid taxes. I’ve paid taxes ever since I was in high school… As far as I know I’m up to date. I’m 100% with my taxes.” As to the charge that his supporters are “domestic terrorists”, Bundy told KXNT that the real domestic terrorists are the BLM. “Talk about terrorists, it seemed like those people who were holding those high-powered weapons against we the people of the state of Nevada and our visiting neighbors—they had to be the terrorists… It wasn’t the people that’s terrorists, it had to be the United States government, the BLM that had to be the terrorists.”

Pentagon mulls deployment as Poland asks for 10,000 troops — RT News

He added that Poland would play a leading role in the NATO build-up of troops in Eastern Europe, “under US patronage,” the Washington Post reported. He added that the US needs to “re-pivot” back to Europe from Asia to counter “Russian aggression” in Ukraine. Siemoniak earlier called on the Pentagon to deploy as many as 10,000 American troops in his country. Poland already hosts some 100 to 150 US military servicing a battery of surface-to-air Patriot missiles, which was deployed in 2010 to give Warsaw more confidence for hosting elements of the NATO anti-ballistic missile shield in Europe. The Polish minister’s calls were mirrored by NATO’s top military commander, Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, who said in an interview this month that one of the options the alliance has on the table is to move a 4,500-member combat brigade from Fort Hood, Texas, to Europe.
