Timeline: Here’s Why Cliven Bundy Walked Free in the Nevada Ranch Standoff Case

US District Judge Gloria Navarro dismissed all charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and two of his sons, Ammon and Ryan, on Monday, citing “flagrant prosecutorial misconduct,” and accusing prosecutors of willfully withholding evidence.

What happened

Four years ago, Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy refused to pay federal grazing fees, an act intended to oppose what he considered to be federal government overreach. The default ultimately lead to an armed standoff between the Bundy family and government agents who were attempting to confiscate their cattle.

When the dust cleared, Cliven and two of his sons were arrested and charged with numerous felonies. To read more about the Bundy case, check out our explainer story here.

Glenn’s take:

On today’s show, Glenn chalked up a detailed timeline of the events which led to the high-profile showdown between an American rancher-gone-rogue and the federal government.

“This is the breakdown of a civil society,” said Glenn. “The militant federal buildup was wrong, but the call for militias, I think, was wrong as well. Each side escalated an already tense situation. The government has a right to enforce the law, but here is the real story … the Bundys have a legitimate complaint. The government has no business owning or managing public land. Period.”

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
