What happened to the peaceful rally? Are these terrorists or just good ol' boys? There is no way this was spontaneous. This was planned all along, truth in the whispers we heard but wanted to ignore. Good people were not only fleeced financially, but used mercilessly for publicity, just like they used the Hammonds.
Every good thing they accomplished, setting up the Committee of Safety, bringing awareness to the Hammonds and the horrible injustices they suffered, the plight of the people of Harney County is destroyed.
This could get very ugly. They are setting themselves up to be Waco-ed, to force an armed confrontation.
These guys have taken over a federal government building and are calling for "patriots" to come help them forcibly push the government out of the area ... and no cops ... no nothing ... I cant believe that this is being largely ignored ... They're going to get themselves killed by the feds. Remember Ruby Ridge?
Unlike Bundy Ranch it appears they've gone looking for this conflict and are baiting the situation as if somehow if the Feds shoot first it justifies armed insurrection like a modern day Lexington-Concord, that's not civil disobedience or protest, it's posturing for political gain by inciting fear of the federal government which many would say fits the definition of terrorism, worse their posturing seems a logical fallacy which many equate to people saying death by cop suicides are police executions, of course the cop shoots when provoked with a deadly weapon and in this situation the Feds will be the ones justified when they respond because armed provocation warrants response of force. This will end up like Ruby Ridge & Waco if not diffused
Libertarians sometimes speak about the erosion of property rights in America which usually leads to discussion about 'the tragedy of the commons' or ad valorem taxation but this is armed occupation of federal land is not the way to make a point about it and it's absolutely ridiculous.
Right or wrong, if they kill one of these guys, the whole thing is gonna explode... If feds slaughter patriot occupiers in Oregon, it will unleash an armed revolution across America... Civil War may be near
Reports that federal officials are headed to Oregon to try to "resolve" the situation where armed citizens now occupy a federal wildlife refuge building should raise warning flags for everyone. If the arrogant, tone deaf federal government attempts an aggressive assault on the compound that results in bloodshed, it might very easily spark a nationwide armed revolt against government tyranny in response.
Tensions are running high across the board. More people than ever are now at the end of their ropes on issues like personal bankruptcy, loss of health care coverage under the Obamacare scam, loss of wages due to job cuts and the fear that comes from living with ISIS terrorists already inside U.S. borders thanks to an incompetent, race-baiting president who apparently seeks the deliberate destruction of America!
The entire premise for the attack on ranchers out West by the BLM is to obtain their land as part of Agenda 21. Without the men of the Hammond family around, how will the ranch survive? It won’t, unless others help. And if that doesn’t happen, the BLM is first in line to obtain the land. Convenient, isn’t it?
Bigger than the Hammond Ranch....
The Federal Government is working hard at a land grab of not only the Hammond's property but the property of nearly 300 farmers and ranchers in an adjacent county as they will once again create a national monument much like the Escalante in Utah! This is about precious natural resources the government wishes to control!
The land grab of the Escalante in Utah happened under Clinton Administration in order to control Clean Coal and in Oregon there have been massive deposits of natural gas, uranium, Mercury and arsenic discovered. Check out the U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1740-B for confirmation of these findings
