· Lyle Rapacki, Attorney General Tom Horne And Former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mark (President of the Constitutional Sheriffs & Peach Officers Assocation (CSPOA) were interviewed on the Lisa Benson National Intelligence Report Radio Show 960AM Patriot Radio on Sunday, April 13. The theme was to be matters associated with State sovereignty. At the time of the radio program, Mack and Rapacki were in Bunkerville, NV at the Bundy Ranch where a very significant and dangerous conflict was unfolding by and between the Bureau of Land Management and citizens and elected officials from across the country – even as far as New Hampshire. Hear it here: audio/the_lisa_benson show
· LD16 Rep Kelly Townsend: A Statement That Brianna Bundy just sent me, to read tomorrow on the floor, regarding the false accusations that the men put the women out front to be shot first: As a woman rider on Saturday I can confirm that the statement made was untrue. In fact it was opposite. We were told to stay at the rear. If a shot were fired, we were to ride as fast as we could for safety. The women did not approach the gate until BLM had dispersed and Metro had arrive. These were officers of our community that we knew and trusted, otherwise we would have remained were the Bundy men told us to stay. The Bundy men are protectors and would not have allowed any harm to come to us. We were there on our own accord for the freedoms of our children. - Briana Bundy
· Rep. Bob Thorpe, R-Flagstaff, Reps. David Livingston, R-Peoria, Kelly Townsend, R-Mesa, and Sens. Judy Burges, R-Sun City West, and Kelli Ward, R-Lake Havasu City traveled to Mesquite, NV over the weekend to observe first-hand what was occurring at the Bundy Ranch. Thorpe is reportedly preparing legislation for consideration during the 2015 session regarding state sovereignty over federal law.
