FBI surrounds final members of the Oregon standoff, inspiring the most unhinged livestream that you will ever hear. Update!

So last night Dennis Zaki, and a number of you guys, sent me links to a livestream that was being broadcast from that federal wildlife refuge in Oregon.

Apparently the FBI had moved in to surround the last four remaining "protesters" and those inside were essentially losing their minds in response.

If you visit TPM this morning you can hear a replay of the audio recorded last night. But I warn you mouthfuls of coffee WILL be spewed in response.

Here is a little of what TPM reported last night:

It could not be immediately confirmed who could be heard on the live stream from the refuge, but based on who is known to be still at the refuge and the context of the highly agitated conversations, it appeared to include occupiers Sean Anderson and his wife Sandy. Sean Anderson could be heard shouting loudly about his concerns that he would go to prison if he did surrender and that he would be separated from his wife Sandy. In the background, Sandy Anderson could be heard saying she was afraid she “would never see the light of day again.” 

"Kill us and get it over with," Sandy Anderson screamed at one point. 

Assemblywoman Fiore was on the phone with the Andersons and could be heard on the live stream. She tried to keep the occupiers calm by asking them to "stay alive" and reflect on their families who would miss them, but the emotions were running high. 

“They were not in our lives before all this,” Sean Anderson said. “That does not matter here.” 

At one point, Sean Anderson blamed the media’s lack of interest in the standoff. 

“They are covering it now because they hope there is bloodshed,” Sean screamed about what he viewed as media bias.

Oregon Live has updates here as well.  And here is the Twitter response.

I hope that you all get the chance to hear some of the live feed, because trust me there is no amount of transcribing or describing that can do it justice.

To simply say that these four, and those on the phones talking to them, are unhinged is the understatement of the decade.

From what I was able to glean from the lunacy, is that the four are hoping that Franklin Graham will arrive this morning and help them surrender so that the FBI will not "gun them down."

Of course the FBI have repeatedly said that they want this to end peacefully, and have clearly bent over backwards to keep from having to shoot these idiots. (Actually you can find a statement to that effect on TPM as well.)

In the meantime Cliven Bundy, who was on the way to join the protesters has been arrested in the Portland International Airport.

I guess at some point this morning this will all come to an end, which will be good news for the people of Oregon, but a real blow to fans of improvisational comedy around the world.

Update: New livestream here.  Not nearly as entertaining unfortunately.

    I have followed the Bundy saga from the days of the ranch pretty closely over the past two years so believe me when I say that not only did I devote an entire evening well past midnight to listen to the live stream but went to bed a happy camper when I heard Cloven had been quickly arrested as he stepped off the plane in Portland. Today the supporters are crying 'Not fair!!! They tricked us'. Well, duh! It ended better than anyone could have hoped.

    Best part of last nights live stream was the complete clusterfuck when Gavin attempted to patch in the angelic Victoria Sharp to pray and sing to the Final Four. Trolls actually made it through on the line!!! We ended the evening with the Sharp Family singers screeching a gospel tune in five part harmony. My ears are still bleeding.

    Drama and comedy at its finest

    I knew it was only a matter of time before they got old Cliven. No one spits in the eye of the government and gets away. All of the fools that went out to help Cliven are in deep shit too! A profile was made on all of those dumbasses and they are just sitting back and waiting to catch them when they least suspect it. They may have won that standoff, but the government will win in the end. Ignorance is bliss until you screw with U.S. law officials. They will drop the hammer and they have all the time in the world to do it.

      Speaking of police officers getting hurt.

      Yesterday two sheriff's deputies were shot and killed (one in the face at point blank range inside Panera Bread in Abingdon, Maryland).

      The guy was a vet with PTSD, anger issues, and a gun. What could go wrong?

      Gryphen, you just wrote about Maryland's court overturning gun restrictions enacted by Martin O'Malley.

      Republican governor, Larry Hogan, needs to man up on this issue.

      I live in Maryland.

      This guy's son was interviewed, and he said it himself on the local NBC morning news.

      The son appeared to be about 30 and a normal, nice looking dude. I will try to find it.

      I can understand that this info probably was not broadcast yet.

      The son also said his mother was the one who identified him in the Panera Bread. She may have been the one who actually called police the way the son put it. He also said he hadn't seen his father in over 20 years and his mother feared him.

      After thinking about, this guy could have actually been following his wife and she noticed him and called police.

    Surrounded by FBI agents, the remaining four holdouts called conservative activist Gavin Seim to provide a livestream of what they view as their final moments. “You guys killed LaVoy, you let Hillary continue to run for President, you let Obama bring terrorists into our country!” militant David Fry yelled at FBI negotiators as the militants reminded federal agents that the occupiers would open fire if law enforcement attempted to move against them.

    As time went on, Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore — the one who thinks cancer is a mold and can simply be flushed out of a body — joined the call, but she is so unimportant the FBI repeatedly refused to speak to her. As I write this, Fiore is still attempting to negotiate — and it is hilarious.

    The Amazing White Right-Wing Entitlement Of The Oregon Militants

    ...Just so we’re all on the same page, these people seized a government building, threatened to kill anyone that entered, and did a great deal of property damage, all while being allowed to hold press conferences. PRESS CONFERENCES! But to them, they were just camping. With guns. And death threats. And no snacks.

    They sound exactly like a kid that’s locked himself in the bathroom and refuses to come out until mommy and daddy promise not to punish him for setting the curtains on fire.

    Now that their playtime is coming to an end, they truly, honestly, deep down, don’t understand why they can’t just pack up and go home. Ask a black person, a Latino or a Muslim if they would be allowed to leave unharmed much less not under arrest and they would quite possibly die from laughter.

    But these are white right wingers and this is “their” country! How DARE someone hold them accountable to the law?! Those laws exist to keep Those People in line! They’re not supposed to keep white right wingers from doing whatever the hell they want! This. Is. TYRANNY!

    Ultimately, however, the four remaining militants agreed to surrender in the morning after they have had some snacks.

    The terrorists will turn themselves in, flanked by Evangelical icon Franklin Graham and Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, who believes that cancer is a fungus that can be washed out with baking soda — a fitting escort for people who think they can give people more freedumbs by taking over a bird sanctuary.

    While it may seem an unfortunate night for the Revolution, at least Cliven can have a family reunion with his sons, who are also in jail along with more than a dozen of their compatriots.

    No words. This standoff is about adults who want what they want until the courts tell them they can't.

    These people want us to believe they are willing to die for a patriotic cause, while play-acting the moaning groaning dying fighting their last breath at the Alamo, with a pen in the hand waiting for any Hollywood script and agent to sign on the dotted line.

    It's schizophrenia on live TV. Really though, these people only want celebrity and fame and to make a chunk of money off of some mythical John Wayne cause.

    Most Americans got up, showered, went to work and work for peanuts, but accept it's part of life. These guys can't accept that the old wild west ain't no more. Rules and laws and federal lands are a reality and they are the last of a few that will never recapture the old days of glory. Of course, a nice movie/book contract might appease them for now.

    Off topic but very newsworthy IMO

    As Bernie Sanders sought to broaden his exposure Saturday in the first presidential primary state in the South, he was joined by a controversial traveling companion: Cornel West, an African American academic who has been highly critical of President Obama.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/cornel-west-joins-bernie-sanders-on-the-campaign-trail-in-south-carolina/2015/09/12/bc9b4236-58c2-11e5-b8c9-944725fcd3b9_story.html

    I've got to say, Sanders letting Cornel hitch his wagon to his campaign really speaks volume about Sanders motives.

    Cornel West is known for his uncle tom foolery.

    West has referred to Obama as “a Rockefeller Republican in blackface” and “a black puppet of corporate plutocrats,” among other insults.

    In a book published this year, West said that Obama has betrayed the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

    “The dream of the radical King for the first black president surely was not a Wall Street presidency, drone presidency, and surveillance presidency with a vanishing black middle class, devastated black working class, and desperate black poor people clinging to fleeting symbols and empty rhetoric,” West wrote.

      The FBI is dealing with a full-fledged, organized (well, to the extent that they are capable) insurrection here--the occupiers are desperate to go down in a blaze of gunfire, and thus be seen as martyrs to the glorious militia cause.

      Instead, this way, the FBI gave them enough rope to hang themselves, and the majority of people regard them as mere comic relief. In addition, they are in federal custody and facing serious charges.
