Militia members, which include the sons of Cliven Bundy, have taken over a Federal building in Oregon. Oh this is going to be bad.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

A protest in support of Oregon ranchers facing jail time for arson was followed by an occupation of a building at a national wildlife refuge led by members of a family previously involved in a showdown with the federal government. 

Ammon Bundy — the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a standoff with the government over grazing rights — told The Oregonian on Saturday that he and two of his brothers were among a group of dozens of people occupying the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. 

Ammon Bundy posted a video on his Facebook page asking for militia members to come help him. He said "this is not a time to stand down. It's a time to stand up and come to Harney County," where Burns is located. Below the video is this statement: "(asterisk)(asterisk)ALL PATRIOTS ITS TIME TO STAND UP NOT STAND DOWN!!! WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! COME PREPARED." 

In an interview with reporters late Saturday night that was posted on Facebook, Bundy said he and others are occupying the building because "the people have been abused long enough."

Yes it is just terrible that the government is trampling all over those arsonist's human rights. 

The 2001 fire was set by Dwight Hammond and his son on government land to cover up the fact that they had illegally poached deer. The fire consumed 139 acres of public land and damn near killed a witness to the blaze.

When the Hammonds were put on trial they were able to convince a jury that the five year minimum sentence was too long and instead received a much lower one, from a jury pool consisting of locals who all know and admire the Hammond family.

Upon appeal the Ninth Circuit Court upheld the minimum mandatory requirements and the Hammonds were retried and sentenced to those mandatory five years.

Apparently THAT is the federal overreach that has now inspired the Bundy boys and local militia members to forcibly take a federal building and engage in a standoff with law enforcement.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if this were being done by Muslims they would all be dead already, right?

    In all honesty, I hope their call to arms is heard far and wide, resulting in our police and federal officers can rid us of a good many of these domestic terrorists at once. It probably won't play out that way, though.

      We got police forces that love to kill, so let's let them do what they do best against our home grown terrorists.

      Are you going to let them occupy some other building/take over more federal land the next time things don't go their way?

      Block off the only road leading in so supplies cannot be replenished. I'm guessing that water is probably supplied through a well so turning off the power will likely shut that down as well. Cold temperatures (well below zero last night) will burn through their heat/cooking fuel quickly. Septic systems for a remote visitor center were not designed to handle groups of people living there during the winter when the ground is frozen, and they will not be able to dig new latrines in frozen ground.

      I suspect that most of these yahoos are not in the physical or mental condition required to hole up there, in the dead of winter, for any prolonged period of time. The novelty of being a member of the Bundy Super Patriotic He-Man Revolution to Support Convicted Felons Who Want Nothing to do With Us will wear thin very quickly as they run low on supplies and freeze their traitorous asses off.

      Oh, and according to a local report, a witness who visited the camp claims to have seen only about 15 people in this 'militia', a far cry from the 150 the Bundies claimed were there.

      TREASON: the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign. 2. a violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state. 3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

      I see that Treason fits the scenerio.

    3. Leland4:48 PM

      Treason is the only crime specifically defined in the Constitution. Article three, Section three:

      Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

      The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

      So by that clear definition, this is not treason. Insurrection, yes, but that's an entirely different thing.

    1st step for these seditious, aggressive, traitors:

    Cut all power, water, heat, land line phones to the building.

    Bring in a cell phone jammer so none of them can call in more of their fellow lunatic gun nuts.

    After a week with no heat, no water, no cell service, drive up with an armored truck, and throw in 50 gas canisters, and the will leave like rats from a sinking ship.

    Every one of them
    They absolutely want an shooting war, and if one of them died, they could make a martry of him.

Eventually he will need supplies. It's going to be pretty hard to get them. The "building" is not easily accessible. It got down to -18 over the weekend. That generator won't last very long unless he brought a tanker with him.

    And, yes, if this was Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, or any Muslim, this would be over. Bundy is a domestic terrorist. His father is a dead beat. This part of Oregon las a lot of BLM land and national forest lands. Guess what? A lot of the locals work for the Federal Government in those forests and lands.

  17. Ever since the Feds did nothing at the Bundy Ranch standoff.. these crazy Militia types have been looking to start a fight. They want to start a shooting war with the government. They all should be charged and tried for sedition and put away for a long time. These types are more dangerous than any Isis sleeper cells because they are our own fellow citizens.

    1. Exactly.

      They didn't get any consequences for the laws they broke then and so they think they can just keep doing whateverthehell they want and nothing will happen to them.

      Spoiled brats all.

      They won't be charged with sedition. They'll be charged with trespassing and fined for any damages they may have done to the property. If they poached any animals, that will be added. But they won't be taught any more of a lesson than they were at the Ranch. I'll bet Cliven hasn't paid his back fees either and the government hasn't seized any of his property.

      They are lucky *I* not in charge of this. I don't take shit from delinquents of any age.

    What’s happening in Oregon isn’t, by any means, an act of “patriotism” or the “duty” of citizens. What’s happening in Oregon is a temper tantrum, and nothing short of treason. This seditious behavior is quite illegal, and the United States Constitution explicitly states that a well regulated militia can be used against insurrections, not in the allowance of such horrific behavior.

    In Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, it states:

    Evening Alaska been a while miss you guys but works been keeping me busy lately so few quick things about this whole OR mess

    The building these guys grabbed is in the middle of a 2000+ acre wildlife refuge there is flat ground for a mile around the visitors center and a 200+ foot tall fire tower that they have snipers in so approaching it at this time is out of the question

    The Building has solid stone walls and a ceramic roof making it more or less bullet proof. Being in the middle of the refuge it is fairly self sufficient water, heat, electric all come from generators with in ground fuel tanks. Also they use it as a staging area for wild land firefighting crews so there is a lot of food, toilet paper, and other supplies stored up so thats the bad news

    Good news is the Feds are going to start getting on scene in the AM and this will just end up being a wait and contain we can hope these guys are not stupid enough to engage law enforcement but anything is possible

      Hi Bill. Welcome back. Thanks for debunking some of the overly optimistic uninformed comment and media foolishness.

      People should never ever underestimate what a fairly small number of illogical but motivated and rural smart zealots can accomplish as far as winding up the ever stupid news media.

      If I had been in charge of the facility and had at least an hour's warning then I would have liberally watered the diesel tanks and taken all the water filter elements when it was time to didi mau len. With a little more time then maybe would have left a single element in the filter and disabled the waterinfuel warning light.

      Ymmv but we will see how this self sufficient situation all rolls out... if they somehow loose the heat and electric at this time of the year it will be a whole different game.


      Maybe the media should give Gale Norton or Steven Griles a call for comment? Or Jack Abramoff?

      That's who these militia fools are really totin the load for. They are too stupid to realize that.

      Then they can be charged with theft of government property when they get arrested at some future point.

      Is the assumption that everything is fully stocked? I would think that the supplies would be drawn down at this time of the year, since there would be no point in keeping large quantities of supplies on hand when the building isn't being used. The septic system is also likely to be overwhelmed soon with that many people using it--it's not meant to be used by that many people, I would think.

  39. First, they aren't patriots, they're seditionists. They're traitors, rebels. They are taking up arms against the government.

    Second, this wouldn't have happened if the Feds had taken care of this when Cliven was rebelling against paying his taxes and fees for grazing his cattle on Federal land for pennies on the dollar. PLUS arrested, convicted and imprisoned all those that shot at a Federal officer.

    Third. Let them have the building "forever". Board up all of the windows and doors, cut off the water, gas and electricity and make sure they occupy that building for a year or two. By then the smell should have dissipated and the clean up crews can move in and clean it out.

    Oh, and charge ol' Cliven for the entire cost. If he hasn't paid up for all that free grazing his cattle stole, make sure you cease ALL of his assets and sell them all off.

  42. The romance of revolution burns feverishly in the veins of gun lovers who imagine the shootout they have so desperately waited for has finally arrived. In the passion of the moment they talk of giving their lives for their cause, but deep down they don't believe it will really happen to them. They wrap themselves in the flag and imagine they are kindred spirits of those who really fought for and died for something the courts couldn't resolve.

    Once they take that step there won't be any turning back. They won't be able to punch the clock at the end of the day and call it a good days work. There won't be time out, break time, a visit to the bar, a doctor's appointment, or any rest. Because war and revolution aren't like that. They are ugly and brutal and unforgiving. And ultimately people die violent, ignoble deaths.

    The stupid asses falling over themselves to join up need to remind themselves that whatever they have today, they won't have tomorrow if they pull the trigger. When that trigger is pulled, it will be the moment they trade away family, friends, and whatever possessions and life they have had up to that moment.

    Pretty heady stuff that can otherwise be resolved through the courts.
