FBI Murders White Patriot Lavoy Finicum in Cold Blood

http://www.infowars.com/fbi-releases-video-of-lavoy-finicum-shooting/



The FBI description on YouTube follows:
This is the complete video footage of a joint FBI and Oregon State Police traffic stop and OSP officer-involved shooting of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. This footage, which has only been edited to blur out aircraft information, was taken by the FBI on 01/26/2016 and released by the FBI on 01/28/2016.
At 26 minutes and 20 seconds the video shows Finicum shot to death. Although the footage was taken from the air, it plainly shows Finicum with his hands up. He then appears to reach inside his jacket and is shot by two OSP officers.
From a write-up on the video posted by Disinfo:
Agents and troopers on scene had information that Finicum and others would be armed. On at least two occasions, Finicum reaches his right hand toward a pocket on the left inside portion of his jacket. He did have a loaded 9 mm semi-automatic handgun in that pocket.
Previous reports stated Finicum charged the officers. This is clearly not the case. It was also reported he was on the ground and this is also not true.
The corporate media spun the story by stating there was a “shoot-out” during the apprehension. The video shows this not to be the case.

Oregon Standoff Turns Violent; Leading Spokesman Dead


By John Friend —
The standoff taking place in southeastern Oregon took a dramatic turn in the late afternoon hours on Tuesday, January 26.
According to local reports, Ammon Bundy, the leader of the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, and a number of other individuals close to him are now in federal custody after being stopped by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Oregon State Police on US Highway 395 roughly 20 miles north of Burns, Oregon.
Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, who AMERICAN FREE PRESS interviewed while at the Refuge, was reportedly killed by law enforcement officers. Ryan Bundy, Ammon’s older brother, was shot and wounded during the violent confrontation, and was subsequently taken into federal custody.
Also arrested were Joseph D. O’Shaughnessy, 45, of Cottonwood, Arizona, and Pete Santilli, 50, of Cincinnati, the combative Internet broadcaster known for his showboating and aggressive manner while recording and live streaming during the standoff. Both men face conspiracy charges of impeding federal officers.
Bundy and his entourage were reportedly traveling to a community meeting that was organized and scheduled by residents in the town of John Day, a small community just north of Burns. The Oregonian, one of the largest newspapers in the state, reported that several hundred locals gathered at the John Day Senior Center before being told Bundy and his supporters would not be speaking at the event.
At 4:25 pm PST, FBI officials and the Oregon State Police released a joint statement describing “an enforcement action to bring into custody a number of individuals associated with the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge,” according to the press release. “During that arrest, there were shots fired.”
Finicum, who served as a spokesman and leader of the occupation, was a Mormon rancher with 11 children. He told NBC News on January 5 that he would rather be killed than arrested.
“There are things more important than your life, and freedom is one of them,” Finicum said.
Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, who has supported the Bundys in the past, told local media outlets that Ammon Bundy called his wife after being detained by law enforcement authorities, informing her that Finicum was cooperating with law enforcement officials before being shot and killed. That allegation has not yet been confirmed.

Emigrate While You Still Can! Learn More . . .

“My dad was such a good good man, through and through,” Arianna Finicum Brown, 26, one of Finicum’s 11 children, told The Oregonian. “He would never ever want to hurt somebody, but he does believe in defending freedom and he knew the risks involved.”
In an interview with The Oregonian on Monday, January 25, Finicum noted that “the tenor has changed” between his entourage and the federal authorities they were negotiating with. “They’re doing all the things that shows that they want to take some kinetic action against us,” Finicum told The Oregonian.
The violent confrontation between law enforcement authorities and the protesters came days after county and state officials in Oregon insisted the federal government intervene, forcefully if necessary, to end the occupation.
Ammon and Ryan Bundy, along with at least five other individuals associated with the occupation, are currently in federal custody. They are facing “a federal felony charge of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation, or threats, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 372,” according to the official statement.
TENSIONS RISING
Tensions had been rising in southeastern Oregon as the standoff at the Refuge in Harney County entered its fourth week. On January 20, Oregon governor Katherine “Kate” Brown submitted a letter to the U.S. Justice Department and FBI Director James Comey urging federal officials to take “swift” action against the occupiers.
“While it is easy to assume that an occupation in such a remote location does not threaten public safety and does not harm any victims, that perception is far from accurate,” the governor stated in her letter. Governor Brown described the occupiers as “armed criminals who appear to be seeking occasions for confrontation,” an allegation Ammon Bundy, Finicum, and other leaders of the occupation strongly disagreed with.
The Oregon governor went on to insist that the federal government find a prompt resolution to the standoff, and end the occupation of the Refuge. “Efforts to negotiate have not been successful, and now it is unclear what steps, if any, federal authorities might take to bring this untenable situation to an end and restore normalcy to to this community.”
The Oregonian, Oregon’s leading newspaper, also published an editorial urging the occupiers to end their protest and leave town on the same day Governor Brown issued her letter to federal authorities.
On Monday, January 25, Harney County Judge Steven E. Grasty, joining Governor Brown in her call for swift action against the protesters occupying the Refuge, argued the time is now for federal authorities to bring an end to the occupation.
“They need to move, they need to make a decision,” Grasty recently stated. “Are they going to arrest these people? Are they going to blockade the facility?”
Federal authorities had emphasized their desire to take an extremely cautious approach to handling the standoff in an effort to avoid violence. Those participating in the occupation and protest also emphasized they were not instigating or enticing a violent confrontation with law enforcement authorities either. They insisted that they were simply interested in having their legitimate grievances addressed by the proper authorities.
As we know now, those desires did not play out.
At various community meetings in Harney County over the course of the past two weeks, local residents expressed their disapproval of the ongoing occupation and the outsiders behind it. Although numerous Harney County residents, including ranchers and private property owners, sympathize with the Hammonds and are critical of many of the federal government’s land management policies in the county, many locals are getting tired of the occupation and the disruption it is causing to their daily lives.
“You should just go home, and I hope somebody catches you on the way, and you go to jail where you deserve to be,” Isabelle Fleuraud, pointing at Ammon Bundy from across the bleachers, stated at a community meeting held on January 19 in Burns, the county seat.

Supporters of Harney County ranchers Dwight L. and Steven D. Hammond, who surrendered to federal authorities in early January, took over a number of federal buildings on the National Refuge on January 2 in protest of the re-sentencing of the Hammonds following a federal appeal of their original sentence.
The protesters and occupiers have maintained that the Hammonds, as well as other local ranchers and private property owners in Oregon and across the United States, have been harassed, mistreated, and intimidated by federal agencies maintaining vast amounts of land owned by the federal government. The federal government has no Constitutional authority to even own the land, protesters claim.
Ammon Bundy, the iconic leader of the occupation now in federal custody, and others submitted a detailed redress of grievance to local and state officials in Oregon in December, emphasizing the plight of the Hammonds and the unjust treatment they have received by the federal government. Thus far, the issues and concerns they have raised with officials have yet to be responded to and addressed.
Local and federal authorities have asserted that the demands issued by the occupiers, which include releasing the Hammonds from federal prison as well as ending federal ownership and management of grazing land and the massive Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, are not feasible and contrary to established law and legal precedents.
County officials, including Harney County Sheriff David M. Ward and Grasty, were entirely unwilling to even engage with Bundy and his entourage, at least when it came to addressing their concerns with federal management of vast amounts of land in Harney County. According to a spokesman for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the federal agency responsible for managing and maintaining land owned by the federal government, the BLM manages over 60% of the county.
Bundy and his supporters engaged in dialogue with representatives of the FBI late last week in an effort to resolve the ongoing standoff. However, on Friday, January 22, Bundy questioned the FBI’s legal authority to operate in Harney County. In a confrontation with Harney County sheriff’s officials, Bundy demanded to know whether or not Harney County officials granted the FBI authority to operate in the county. Harney County officials informed Bundy the FBI did in fact have permission to operate, and that local and state agencies were working closely with the federal government in their response to the standoff.

NSA Monitors Israel, Catches Corrupt Congressmen

Treasonous legislators empowered the spies who caught them; Jews and their bought politicians wail loudly


IN A STORY that shows that Jewish-American lobbyists and journalists have very little self-awareness, Adam Entous and Danny Yadron thought that it would be a good idea to publish a story in which they made it appear that the US Government was violating some kind of agreement to not spy on ‘allies’, when the NSA monitored Netanyahu’s activities during the P5+1 negotiations with Iran. (ILLUSTRATION: Netanyahu speaking before the US Congress)
The monitoring activities were carried out with the intention of discovering what Netanyahu’s views on the proposed deal were, and what his response to it going forward might be. This monitoring would have been approved by senior figures in the Obama administration, as well as the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.
President Barack Obama announced two years ago he would curtail eavesdropping on friendly heads of state after the world learned the reach of long-secret U.S. surveillance programs.
But behind the scenes, the White House decided to keep certain allies under close watch, current and former US officials said.
[…]
The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears […] that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.
Of course, what neither of these persons mention in their article is that monitoring Netanyahu’s communications was both legal and necessary.
Monitoring what other world leaders are doing so that the United States can have good information from which to make policy decisions is literally the mission statement of the NSA. Furthermore, Israel has chosen to prefer a policy on Iran that is directly at odds with that of the United States, and at odds with that of NATO more broadly. The North Atlantic desired to cultivate Iran as a swing-power which could be peeled away from Russia and utilised for offsetting Russian preponderance over natural gas supplies to Europe, and which would perhaps someday be able to frustrate Russian attempts to consolidate its influence over CIS states that have cultural or historical ties to Iran. Israel has different ideas, because Israel has a different set of priorities.
So what are they complaining about? It’s a nonsensical complaint. The Israelis should have expected that they’d be monitored. This of course did not prevent Israel’s most ardent defenders from writing absolutely ridiculous stories for weeks on end about it.
But there was an element of this story that was not touched on and which was almost conspicuously not touched on. The fact that spying on Netanyahu would become the same thing as ‘spying on the US Congress’ was what really ought to have been the story. If spying on Netanyahu is almost the same thing as spying on the US Congress, then that is an indicator of there being a serious problem in the political system itself.
That problem looks like this:
How Mr. Netanyahu and his advisers had leaked details of the U.S.-Iran negotiations — learned through Israeli spying operations — to undermine the talks; coordinated talking points with Jewish-American groups against the deal; and asked undecided lawmakers what it would take to win their votes, according to current and former officials familiar with the intercepts.
And also ambassadors getting themselves involved:
Mr. Dermer was described as coaching unnamed U.S. organizations — which officials could tell from the context were Jewish-American groups — on lines of argument to use with lawmakers, and Israeli officials were reported pressing lawmakers to oppose the deal.
[…]
Israel’s pitch to undecided lawmakers often included such questions as: “How can we get your vote? What’s it going to take?”
But you see, according to present and former US lawmakers who have enormous mouths and are suddenly very concerned about the somewhat nebulous concept of ‘civil liberties’, discovering when someone is trying to plunge a knife into your back is just the gravest violation of the privacy of those who are trying to do the plunging.
For example, Representative Ted Lieu, (D-California) who “has consistently voted to curb powers of the NSA”, asserted on twitter that:

That’s the part he objects to.
And there was also none other than Pete Hoekstra (formerly R-Michigan), the former congressman who chaired the House Intelligence Committee from 2004-2007, took to twitter to complain, saying:
Perhaps Hoekstra is really upset because he shares something common with former representative Jane Harman (D-California), who in 2006 was being lined up to seamlessly replace him, and whose Israeli tricks were foiled by the NSA at that time too:
Ms. Harman was inadvertently swept up by N.S.A. eavesdroppers who were listening in on conversations during an investigation, three current or former senior officials said. It is not clear exactly when the wiretaps occurred; they were first reported by Congressional Quarterly on its Web site.
The official with access to the transcripts said someone seeking help for the employees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a prominent pro-Israel lobbying group, was recorded asking Ms. Harman, a longtime supporter of its efforts, to intervene with the Justice Department. She responded, the official recounted, by saying she would have more influence with a White House official she did not identify.
In return, the caller promised her that a wealthy California donor — the media mogul Haim Saban — would threaten to withhold campaign contributions to Representative Nancy Pelosi, the California Democrat who was expected to become House speaker after the 2006 election, if she did not select Ms. Harman for the intelligence post.
Much like Hoekstra, Harman also had something to say about supposed ‘abuses of power’ at that time:
Think Progress, ‘Harman: ‘I’m Just Very Disappointed’’, Ali Frick, 21 Apr 2009:
I’m just very disappointed that my country — I’m an American citizen just like you are — could have permitted what I think is a gross abuse of power in recent years.
She’s one of the people who approved the budget and the legal framework that would supply the NSA and others with equipment and a mandate to watch PCS networks and collect the data under one roof, but then she thought that the NSA and FBI were going to magically avoid collecting signals from her because she’s special?
Whenever Jews or their associates find themselves being treated just like everyone else, they suddenly get very tearful and start talking about how they are so, so, sooppressed. A sad tune needs to be played for them, perhaps, on the tiniest of tiny violins.

California Holocaust Denial Speech Restrictions Initiative

California Holocaust Denial Speech Restrictions Initiative

Notice the strawman addition of the Armenians and Ukrainians to disguise the main agenda here.
THE Holocaust Denial Speech Restrictions Initiative (#15-0073) is an initiated state statute proposed for the California ballot on November 8, 2016.
The measure would prohibit any speech that claims Jewish, Armenian or Ukrainian Holocausts did not exist in any state-funded school, museum or educational institution. It would also prohibit Holocaust denial organizations from distributing information or conducting activities at these state-funded locations.
The official ballot title is:
“Speech. Holocaust Denial Restrictions. Initiative Statute.”
Ballot summary:
The official ballot summary is:
Restricts speech that lobbies against the recognition of the Jewish, Armenian, or Ukrainian Holocausts at any school, educational institution, or museum that receives state funds. Prevents Holocaust denial organizations, as defined, from disseminating information and conducting activities on the premises of these institutions, or involving the employees, clients, or students of these institutions. Permits injunctive relief and damages against the Holocaust denial organizations that commit violations.
Full text
The full text of the measure can be found here.
Fiscal impact
(Note: The fiscal impact statement for a California ballot initiative authorized for circulation is jointly prepared by the state’s Legislative Analyst and its Director of Finance.) The statement reads:
Given its restraint on free speech, a court may find this measure unconstitutional. If so, it would have no fiscal effect. If the measure could be implemented legally, the annual cost to state-funded educational institutions is unlikely to be significant statewide, but the cost for a particular local government in a particular year might be significant if it is sued and found to have violated the provisions of the measure.
Path to the ballot
  • Gregory Foulkes submitted a letter requesting a title and summary on October 1, 2015.
  • A title and summary were issued by the Attorney General of California’s office on December 7, 2015.
  • 365,880 valid signatures are required for qualification purposes.
  • Supporters have until June 6, 2016, to collect the required signatures.

Friends of Hillary, by Professor Kevin MacDonald

Friends of Hillary

Hmmm, I’m noticing a pattern here: Corruption within an ethnic nexus. Of course, it’s not Hillary’s ethny.
Richard Pollock, The Daily Caller: Ethics Complaint Says Big Clinton Donors Got State Dept Access
The non-profit government watchdog group [Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust.] filed the complaint with the Office of Government Ethics, asking it to conduct a “full investigation” into [Hillary] Clinton’s “apparent breach of ethics rules.” A copy of the complaint was exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The organization charged Clinton gave “preferential treatment to individuals with which she had financial ties” and “regularly granted access” to rich donors, celebrities, and even powerful foreign nationals. …
Clinton granted access to such people as billionaire George Soros, philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates, designer Diane von Furstenberg and her husband Barry Diller, retired Citigroup Chairman Sanford Weill, real estate magnate Walter Shorenstein, former Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz and media mogul Haim Saban, according to appendices attached to the complaint.
Clinton met twice as Secretary of State with Soros and appointed his personal candidate as the U.S. Government’s special envoy to Albania during a period of political unrest in that country. Soros has given at least $2 million to super PACs supporting Clinton, according to the Washington Post.
“Georg Soros is anxious to see you before he leaves for Europe next Tuesday,” an aide wrote to Clinton in one of the emails. “Could I fit him in for tomorrow,” the aide asked. “Yes,” Clinton replied.
Melanne Verveer, a top aide who followed Clinton from the White House to the State Department, transmitted to her the views of Victor Pinchuk, a Ukrainian oligarch who married the daughter of former Ukrainian Communist president Leonid Kuchma.
The Clintons met Pinchuk, attending his 2014 annual conference at Livadia Palace, the last Russian czar’s summer retreat on the Black Sea. He has given at least $13 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to The New York Times.
Civic reform groups widely criticized Kuchma’s presidency as riddled with corruption and nepotism. The former communist leader was tainted with allegations by a Ukrainian prosecutor that he was tied to the grisly murder of a prominent anti-government journalist, whose headless and mutilated body was found in 2000.
FACT founder and former U.S. Attorney Matthew Whitaker charged in an interview with TheDCNF that Clinton “allowed insider access and pay-to-play politics” where donors to the Clinton Foundation and to her political campaigns received “regular access” to her office.
“There’s a growing narrative surrounding her in the way in which she does business,” he said. “Essentially if someone wants to have access to her, they need to be a significant donor to her political campaigns or to her philanthropic endeavors.” …
Of course,  Pollock, may be cherry picking, but I can’t find a complete list. Let’s just say Jews are over-represented. It gets worse:

Associated Press report discussed in American Thinker:
As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton intervened in a request forwarded by her son-in-law [Marc Mezvinsky] on behalf of a deep-sea mining firm to meet with her or other State Department officials after one of the firm’s investors asked Chelsea Clinton’s husband for help setting up such contacts, according to the most recently released Clinton emails.
The lobbying effort on behalf of Neptune Minerals Inc. came while Clinton — now the leading Democratic presidential candidate — was advocating for an Obama administration push to win Senate approval for a sweeping law of the sea treaty. The pact would have aided U.S. mining companies scouring for minerals in international waters, but the Republican-dominated Senate blocked it.
Clinton ordered a senior State Department official in August 2012 to look into the request. Her action came three months after an investor in the mining firm emailed Marc Mezvinsky, Chelsea Clinton’s husband and a partner in Eaglevale Partners LP, a New York hedge fund, asking for his help in setting up State Department contacts.
Clinton relayed a copy of the investor’s email to Mezvinsky to Thomas Nides, then a deputy secretary of state and now vice chairman at Morgan Stanley, a major New York financial services firm. “Could you have someone follow up on this request which was forwarded to me?” Clinton asked Nides. He replied: “I’ll get on it.”

FACT complaint, December 14, 2015, alleges that Mezvinsky was acting at the behest of Henry Siklas, an investor in Neptune Minerals, Inc. and an employee of Goldman Sachs. It also notes that Goldman Sachs employees donated to her 2008 presidential campaign and directly to the Clinton Foundation.

Sarah Westwood, Washington Examiner (December 10, 2015):
Siklas said Neptune was a client of Goldman Sachs, an investment bank to which the Clintons have extensive ties. Executives at Goldman Sachs were among the top donors to Clinton’s Senate campaigns, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Hillary Clinton and her husband together earned hefty sums by delivering speeches to Goldman Sachs, with the former secretary of state netting $225,000 each for three different speeches to the bank in 2013 alone. …
The maze of permits and licenses required for companies to mine in international waters is difficult for any firm to navigate. With an ally in the State Department, Neptune may have had an easier time securing the rights to mine select stretches of sea floor.
Although the company didn’t exist in the U.S. until 2011, by the end of 2012, it already had multiple licenses to operate in the Pacific.
“Neptune has an exploration license covering the Kermadec arc north of North Island, New Zealand, and either holds or has applied for licenses at several other places in the western Pacific Ocean,” a Dec. 2012 issue of Mining Magazine said. “It has been putting particular emphasis on the Solomon Islands.”
Siklas’ request to Clinton’s son-in-law came seven months before that article indicated his company had successfully obtained licenses. It is unclear when or how Neptune secured permits for its Pacific mining.

The FBI Didn’t Investigate The CofCC Over Charleston

The FBI ignored the SPLC’s hysteria over Charleston
“The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it did not investigate the hate group that inspired Dylann Roof to kill nine black parishioners in Charleston, South Carolina last year.
FBI spokeswoman Jillian Stickels told The Daily Beast that there is no record of an investigation into the Council of Conservative Citizens. This comes after The Daily Beast requested FBI files on the group through the Freedom of Information Act. The FBI did not respond to requests for files on the CCC’s most prominent leaders.
The FOIA request also covered one week following the June 17, 2015 attack, indicating that the FBI wasn’t looking into the group even after it was revealed that Roof cited the CCC in his manifesto. …”
According to the SPLC and the mainstream media, the CofCC “inspired” Dylann Roof’s attack in Charleston, but the FBI knew all along that the alleged “links” were bogus and that our group had nothing to do with Roof’s actions.
We said all along that Dylann Roof was 1.) never a member of the CofCC, 2.) never made contact with anyone we know in the real world, 3.) and that we had never heard of him until he was connected with Charleston on television. It was also clear to us that the investigators assigned to the case must have believed the same thing because we were never contacted by anyone affiliated with law enforcement.

Like the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” lie or the demise of Obama’s son Trayvon Martin, the truth was bound to come out at some point.

The Oregon Standoff

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
January 4, 2016

Editor's note: Point one - These men were already tried and convicted and served a sentence. Now the Judge has come back and is telling them they have to serve an additional sentence of 5 years. - is this not a complete slap in the face to double jeopardy?

The Double 
Jeopardy clause in the Fifth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution provides that "No person shall ... be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb." The son has already served a year and the father 3 months - now the judge has said that the men have to return to jail for an additional 5 years?
Point 2 - The BLM has encroached upon and eliminated about 100 farmers in Harney county Oregon and has recently burned cattle, structures and land around the Hammond's farm in an attempt to scare them and cause them financial harm - the Hammond's lost and estimated 80 head of cattle - easily over 125,000 dollars worth of livestock lost to them at the hands of the BLM.

Point 3 - all this is being done to remove a family that lived on the land before BLM even had rights there. They are one of the last family ranches left in a county that was once the richest in Oregon - and now because of EPA, BLM and other government agencies Harney county is now the poorest.

Point 4. - There is a wealth of uranium and natural gas under the Hammond's property that the U.S. government wants control of and are not going to take no for an answer.

If personal property can be confiscated and taken away because the government wants the profit from it - what is left of our home of brave and land of the free.

Point 5 - The amount of natural gas and uranium under their land is infinitely more than enough to pay off the local BLM and federal BLM agents and get them to act as rogue thugs. Besides; in a society where we have just tried, convicted and sentenced a Judge in PA for illegally stealing children from their parents using Child Protective Services, and selling them to PRISONS FOR CASH - can we really say that our system is so righteous, corrupt free and infallible that it, or it's servants would not do such things for profit?

Yesterday, I commented on the Oregon cattle rancher standoff and was criticized and even called a secret agent for saying I didn’t really think the issue was especially important in the larger scheme of things.
Apparently, we have some readers who feel very strongly about the Bureau of Land Management and the way it deals with cattle-grazing.
Just to be clear, I am not especially informed on the details of laws about cattle-grazing. However, when I see working class White men in a confrontation with the federal government, I simply assume that the federal government is wrong and the working men are right.
Clearly, that is the case in this situation.
For those who don’t know:
The short summary is:  in an effort to draw attention to a ridiculous arrest of a father and son pair of Oregon Ranchers (“Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46,) who are scheduled to begin five year prison sentences (turning themselves in tomorrow January 4th 2016), three brothers from the Cliven Bundy family and approximately 100/150 (and growing) heavily armed militia (former U.S. service members) have taken control of Malheur Wildlife Refuge Headquarters in the wildlife reserve.  They are prepared to stay there indefinitely.
You can read the long version at Conservative Treehouse.
Basically, the Federal government is trying to bully these people to give up their land, prosecuting them for fires they set which were actually to prevent fires, and which the federal government has admitted were a good thing. They are also overreaching their jurisdiction, expanding their authority in an unconstitutional way.
Here is a video that Ammon Bundy, who is heading up the protest, posted on January 1, outlining a lot of the detail.
Right now, approximately 200 armed militia men are in this wildlife refuge, protesting. They say they are ready to stay there for years.
What I was criticized for yesterday was saying that this is not an issue which most people can rally around very easily, as most people – myself included – do not keep cattle-grazing rights as an issue close to our hearts. Of course, most people do keep the issue of government intrusion into our lives close to our hearts, but that is easily obfuscated by the details of this situation.
Obviously, I think it is somewhat regrettable that these people are not using their energies toward something that would be easier for the masses to rally around. Besides the fact that the issue of cattle-grazing is obscure, the politics themselves are esoteric.
However, what people will feel strongly about is if the FBI goes in and tries to do a Waco on these protesters in the refuge.
Right now, the FBI says they are merely “monitoring” the situation. Probably, they don’t want to deal with the backlash of killing a bunch of Americans in a massive shootout. But maybe they will.
