Feds plan to cut off power to the bird sanctuary in Oregon taken over by the militia members. Apparently it's "flat ass cold" up there.

Federal authorities are planning to cut off the power of the wildlife refuge in Oregon that has been taken over by militia, exposing the armed occupiers to sub-zero temperatures in an effort to flush them out. 

Armed militants will begin their third day at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, a remote federal outpost in eastern Oregon, on Tuesday, and have vowed to remain for months in protest over the treatment of two local cattle ranchers. 

A federal government official told the Guardian that authorities were planning on Monday to cut the power at the refuge. 

“It’s in the middle of nowhere,” said the official, who is based in Washington, DC, and has knowledge of the planned response to the militia. “And it’s flat-ass cold up there.” 

The official, who asked not to be named, said they were not privy to the FBI’s plan of action. However, they said the US Fish and Wildlife Service, which is leading the crisis management reaction to the occupation in liaison with the FBI, planned to cut the power to the building where the militiamen are spending their nights.

Yeah let's see how long these "tough guys" last with their ass cheeks freezing together.

And we know they are not prepared because they have already had to beg for donations of food and warm clothing.

And they are losing support as well.

They have already been abandoned by their religious leaders:

If Ammon Bundy and other Mormons involved in taking over a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon believe their religion is backing them, they should reconsider. 

Leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints "strongly condemn the armed seizure of the facility," spokesman Eric Hawkins said in a news release Monday, "and are deeply troubled by the reports that those who have seized the facility suggest that they are doing so based on scriptural principles." 

The release further states that "this armed occupation can in no way be justified on a scriptural basis."

That's gotta sting.

And if that were not bad enough the group has angered the birding community:

Just a friendly warning from the birding and wildlife photography community to the Oregon terrorists. We are watching your every move, and we have been watching you for a long time. And yes absolutely you are domestic terrorists of the worst kind, and the truth about your decades of constant poaching of protected wildlife around Malheur and other wildlife refuges, national parks, national forests and BLM lands has been well-documented. For years those of us who are wildlife photographers, birdwatchers and carers of wildlife, have been documenting the activities of you poachers and criminals around many of our nation's wildlife refuges. With our powerful cameras, and ability to move unseen in the wilderness, we have found and documented your illegal hunts, your illegal traps and all sorts of illicit activities, and are constantly feeding that information to law enforcement, and we have finally got many of you poachers on the run and into jails. And I for one am a westerner sick to death of you welfare queens and cheats living off of BLM land, illegally gutting our wilderness and our wildlife. Malheur, Hart Mountain, Klamath Marsh, Yellowstone, Glacier, Yosemite etc etc, they all belong to us, we the American people, and no small group of armed thugs is going to destroy the great wildlife and national park system that our great Republican President Teddy Roosevelt and John Muir put in place over a century ago. Wildlife photographers and wildlife/bird watchers now number some 40 million people in the USA, and feed many rural western economies with our tourism dollars, and we will not stand for your sedition.

Yeah forget the Feds, THESE guys mean business!

I am seriously trying to decide which is my favorites sitcom, the Palin-Meyer kerfuffle, or this three ring circus in Oregon.

Oh hell, I'll sit and enjoy both of them.

    I have encountered the Vermont version of the militant birder. Do not tangle with them.

    On the other hand, a kind birder rescued me from a (nesting) goshawk attack... (duck low to the ground and bug out of the area).

      Most birds will only get that aggressive is when their chicks are hatching or learning to fly.

  2. This area is a critical location for migratory birds, and, for that reason, it is VERY POPULAR with serious birdwatchers all over the US and Canada.

    Turns out, birders nationwide are PISSED OFF AT THESE CLOWNS who are disrupting their birding expeditions.

    If these "militia" idjits think the feds are a threat, just wait until a thousand or so pissed off birders show up!!!!!! They'll beg the feds to protect them!!

      I am extremely concerned about what damage these insurrectionists are surely doing to the refuge.

      I am sure they are trashing the buildings and will be burning the furniture and everything else to stay warm. I have heard that they have 'slaughtered' dozens of deer already, and who knows what other animals they will be shooting given time.

      And then there is the impact on the birds that the refugee is meant to protect. It is a vital migratory stopover for millions of birds and I can only hope that the yahoos have been evicted before spring migration populations grow. They would be just the types to be shooting swans for fun or god only knows.

    Nope, ain't buying it...
    If all Muslims are terrorists, it stands to reason that ALL Mormons are behind and supportive of this domestic terrorism.

    Power cut is only a beginning. Cut water. Box 'em in, don't let them leave without benefit of handcuffs. No deliveries. Cut phone and cell service. Yes, the Feds surely can block cell service.

    Let them sleep naked with each other to stay warm... now I need to wash my fingers with Clorox for typing that gem. Eeeeewwww.

    Oh, the irony: they've taken over a BIRD sanctuary, but can't TWEET (because Twitter has cut them off). Now the old buzzards will lose the power to keep warm and run the well. IF the well also provides flushing water for the toilet, well, that could get interesting, too. I predict they will leave this federal property filthy and vandalized, that it will require tens of thousands of dollars in tax money to clean it up and repair it once they are gone, and that the government will be hard-pressed, unfortunately, to know which one/s of them actually did the damage. VERY unfortunate that the feds do not have hidden cameras going with audio capacity. Or, DO they? This idiotic yet criminal insurrection and takeover might give the feds the incentive to install such a device at other remote federal outposts.

  9. Power should have cut off the first day. I don't give a rat's ass that those cowards brought in women, and children to shield their asses. And, just for them, I posted; under my granddaughters FB account, a poem that I wrote for them, and I want to share it with you:

    Camo gear in winter's snow
    We can see them don't they know?
    They will stay until they die
    "Send Funyuns", their battle cry!

    Constitution to defend
    They never read it, I contend
    One fifty men, and not one brain
    Mooching off the Feds terrain.

    No silver wings on these guys chests
    Let them rot in their own mess
    One fifty men, full of turd
    Sitting in, a park for birds.

  10. Hey Feds, just do it already! I gotta say that I'm thoroughly enjoying this whole fiasco. I don't want anyone to get hurt and the best way to get to these idiot so-called "patriots" is to wait them out. Oh I wish I was a fly on the wall listening to them whine and grouse about how "we the people" don't know how the evil government is gonna round all of us up into Walmart death camps cuz chemtrails, fluoride and new world order and don't forget reptilian Hillary Clinton also! And you just know that when you get that many egotistical swinging dicks in one small space that it won't be too long before they start turning on each other. Pass the popcorn, this is better than watching The Life and Times of Barstool Palin.

    2. Oh the emotional part of me would love to see them all hanging from the gallows But they want a confrontation. They have some stupid romanticized notion that they'll die heroes and that we'll be singing folk songs about them a hundred years from now. I believe it when they say they're ready to kill or be killed to start their new american revolution. They really think they're our modern day Thomas Paine or Samuel Adams. I do agree with you about their being domestic terrorists though.

    As a birder with a powerful camera who has already put one poacher in jail and made him lose his hunting privileges, I support the birders 1000%. Nothing made me feel better than seeing the hunter I caught with a poached deer run like hell with me snapping away, got his face, gun, car, car plate, and his droopy camos. Big f-ing chicken shit.
    The deer ended up at the local wildlife sanctuary as food for wolves and coyotes.

    This article is old. They haven't done jack shit. The feds even let them go out to dinner in town last night. The feds even let 2 reuters reporters spend the night with the terrorists, illegally on federal land. No one has cut off any power, the domestic terrorists are using the computers, printers, and offices of wildlife biologists, making fun of what the biologists do in getting rid of introduced carp. While them themselves are introduced crap.
