Cliven Bundy American Patriot - The Next Edition!

$3,920

Sitting in Federal lock-up on a cold metal stool, I looked across the smooth stainless table that separated me from this aging, weathered man, Cliven Bundy. I asked him why he wanted his story told. He paused for a moment. Then looked me right in the eyes and smiled that big grin of his. 

“Ya know, I asked that same question to a reporter who was a pestering me for a interview,” he paused, reflecting on the moment. “You know what he said? ‘Some people love you and some people hate you, but they all want to know your story.’” He paused again, “I guess they are trying to figure out if I’m a terrorist.” He laughed.

It was then I realized that Cliven Bundy’s story needed to be told.  

The book, Cliven Bundy American Patriot, is the true story of a man that has divided the West. His famous “Stand-off,” as reported by the media, has become a flashpoint with people who strongly believe in property rights and against government overreach. In opposition are the proponents of multi - land use and environmentalism. It’s also become hotly debated among those pitted against one another regarding what really happened in April of 2014, each holding on to his “own truth,” at times in complete disregard as to what actually happened during the 25-year battle Cliven Bundy has had with the power of the federal government.  

Biographer Michael Stickler delves deep into the life and beliefs of Cliven Bundy, spending 60 days in Federal lock-up with him, documenting Bundy’s view. Stickler also does exhaustive research into Bundy’s claims and the actual forces that moved to arrest the swelling discontent of American’s that began to follow the Bundy’s.  

One reader acclaimed:  

“I loved the book as everything I had read so far even by supporters of the Bundy family tended to have their own narrative and bias. This was just very factual and well researched and read as if Cliven himself was telling the story with all the documentation to prove what actually happened. Thank you so much, Michael, for your dedication to making the truth be known.” --Cynthia H

Stickler endeavors to treat Bundy fairly, telling the story of Bundy’s life without judgement, carefully balancing the facts of the actual happenings leading up to the “Standoff,” Bundy’s arrest, and the headline-making court decision. This decision dismissed all charges against Cliven Bundy after he spent nearly 700 days in prison. Cliven Bundy American Patriot is fair, yet hard-hitting and well-researched, while holding nothing back from the life of Cliven Bundy. You’ll be shocked at the lengths the United States government will go to stop one man, a man who just wants to live his life on his own terms. You’ll understand the reasons Bundy took the actions he did. Then, you’ll be left to finally make a fully qualified determination: 

Is Cliven Bundy a Domestic Terrorist or an American Patriot?

What will we do with the funds?

This book is not the typical book out on the supermarket rack or bookseller’s shelf. This book tells the story of real lives on the line … right now … today … in real peril. It’s not a dusty, old story about something that happened years ago – instead, you know that it is happening before our very eyes – even as its actual content is being so badly reported in the headlines, on social media, and on television. The vital stakes are high – not just for the 19 men unjustly imprisoned – but, for their wives and the 26 children who may be effectively or actually orphaned through their fight for our rights. So far, only one has given his life at the hands of the government. Besides the direct impact to these families, however, there are numerous ranchers, miners, hunters, countless other livelihood-stakeholders, AND YOU(!) who will be indirectly impacted if our public lands continued to be taken away from "the people."

But more importantly, the story of Cliven Bundy is one in which every American has a stake. Cliven’s battle is about holding the Government accountable to the governed, a concept which is enshrined in the Constitution of The United States of America. Sadly, today’s government bureaucracy has a long history of reaching well beyond its boundaries, boundaries set by the Constitution, the law, and We The People. That is the story of Cliven Bundy; that is the story that needs to be told; and, with your help, here's how we are going to do it:

1. With your help, we'll retain a nationally recognized Public Relations firm, whom we have already interviewed, who will work day and night to get the Nation’s attention focused on Cliven’s real story – by including coverage in:

National conservative talk radio, magazines and newspapers, social media, local and national television.

2. We will use search engine marketing and search engine optimization techniques to keep the book listed within the top five internet search responses to every search term so it will be presented right alongside the media stories. At least on the internet, the truth of Cliven's real story will have equal billing with the “news” that others are fabricating and reporting.

3. With your funding help, we will ship a copy of Cliven’s book to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, every Congressman and Senator, and of course, to President Trump. As well, printed copies will be sent to reporters, commentators, educators and librarians who are open to the truth about Cliven’s cause.

4. We want your help in supporting the grassroots efforts publicizing the truth, too. Countless men and women are keeping the truth alive by telling Cliven’s story daily. Risking it all, they have taken up Cliven’s fight and they need our encouragement in their determination to do this. We want to help them with merchandise that tells the story and similar ways of practical support.

This effort is much more than just selling some books and t-shirts. It’s an effort to broadcast to the world what is happening in rural America; and it’s an effort to tell the government bureaucrats: No! Stop! … ENOUGH! This is an effort to restore the clearly stated intent of our Founding Fathers though the story of one man, Cliven Bundy.

Risks and challenges

This isn’t our first rodeo.

Michael Stickler, the author of "Cliven Bundy American Patriot," has been writing and selling books for more than twenty years. An established author, Michael has both his publisher and distributor ready once-again to team-up, print, and ship books and promotional materials to a broad audience – immediately.

The challenge, however, is piercing the brick wall created by today’s unholy alliance of the government bureaucracy’s wholly-fabricated narrative (which dismisses Cliven as a ‘gun-toting wacko’ and domestic terrorist) and a lazy and/or agenda-driven media that simply shouts this narrative’s sensationalism rather than doing the honest job the Fourth Estate should be doing – questioning! Who really IS Cliven Bundy? What does he actually stand for? What is the real issue here and how does it affect every American? … and why is Cliven, the only rancher left standing to challenge this half-century, broad government land-grab, risking everything (literally, his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor) to preserve our Constitutional rights?

So, where are we – that is, you and I, in all of this?

In essence, we need to sell this book – or, frankly, the truth of Cliven’s real story may never get to the American public and simply disappear into a history written by a land-grabbing, Constitution-ignoring government and its lazy media co-conspirators – along with your Constitutional rights.

But, we believe that with your help and our marketing and production teams' we can keep the truth of Cliven’s real story from falling away unheard and unseen. Even in today’s hostile-to-the-truth media environment, with your help this book can ‘fly off the shelves’ and drive Cliven’s story into the consciousness of America.

Producing anything at high-volume – let alone books and promotional products – poses many problems. But, after more than 20 years of keeping dozens of American workers and vendors employed to produce and deliver his books and materials, Michael’s track record is clear: these dedicated workers ship complete orders on time, every time!

In addition, we are able to provide world-class customer service to our backers ... even in the publishing industry, one not traditionally thought of as having customer service at all.

We are not starting from square one:
• We are still working with the production team who has supported us for years – and together, we’ve cut the trouble spots ruthlessly to bring our product to the market (and into America’s hands) very quickly.
• True, we’ve never sold promotional materials like t-shirts and hoodies (up until now, we've only sold books); but, we're confident that with our new team members (who are experts at it in their own right) we can pull these items’ production and delivery off, too.
• And we are confident that with your help, we can raise the America’s consciousness to the importance of the real issue at stake and its real truth.
