Barack to Cliven: You've Been PWNED!!

The newly designated Gold Butte National Monument is within hollering distance of the Bundy Ranch in NV, current HQ of Vanilla Isis, Y'all Qaeda, and Cletus Nation.

From KGW Portland:

After years of publicly opposing federal land management policy, Cliven Bundy will now be able to see a 300,000 acre national monument from his ranch in Nevada.

On Wednesday, Obama designated two national monuments. The Bears Ears National Monument covers 1.35 million acres in Utah. The second is Gold Butte National Monument; 300,000 acres near Las Vegas, Nevada.

Bundy has allegedly allowed his cattle to graze on the Gold Butte land without paying grazing fees. In 2014, he led a standoff against U.S. agents. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Bundy has claimed ancestral rights to the Gold Butte land.

Two of Bundy’s sons, Ammon and Ryan, led a standoff in Oregon at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge that lasted for more than a month in early 2016. The brothers were acquitted on federal charges in that standoff but still face charges in the Nevada case.

Some environmental groups and businesses have advocated for a national monument in Eastern Oregon, near where the occupation took place. The proposed Owyhee Canyonlands national monument covers more than 2 million acres in Eastern Oregon and includes land ranchers currently use to graze cattle.
