#StandWithHarney #OperationHammondFreedom #LibertyRevolution
The American Triad of Holiday Tradition, starting with Thanksgiving, a time when we start looking at our year and give thanks for the blessings of Providence upon us and our loved ones. We gather together with family and friends to kick off the winter holiday season with Christmas close behind, ramping up to a look forward to change and great expectations for a New Year to come! Although a busy time for most, the people of Harney County Oregon had a monumental burden to bare this December. While most people met for Holiday Programs, Sub For Santa Projects and festive dinner parties along with Christmas shopping, the friends of the Hammond family and concerned citizens alike gathered together during the hustle and bustle of the season to educate themselves on the plight of their neighbors and garner support as a community in defense of the remaining property owners in the County of Harney. You see the Hammond's are the latest target of the Federal Government land-grab. Not unlike many of the other stories told and untold across our great United States where the Federal Government, through it's agencies (in this case the BLM and FWS), has usurped constitutional rights, restricted usage and employed an unconstitutional court system to do their bidding and extort property owners out of their money and property forcing most out of business and striping them of their assets and confiscating their land, putting it off limits to the average man. The state of Oregon and Harney County elected officials, being complicit in the Federal Governments schemes, the County Sheriff, supposedly sworn to uphold the Constitution in defense of the people against a tyrannical government, instead arresting and detaining Dwight and Steve Hammond at the behest of the feds. All that being said, the citizens of Harney County gathered.
Let me introduce you to the Hammond Family-Burns Oregon and give you a brief outline of the history of the land, their family and situation as they purchased land, set up shop and went to cattle ranching...
(aa) The Harney Basin (were the Hammond ranch is established) was settled in the 1870’s. The valley was settled by multiple ranchers and was known to have run over 300,000 head of cattle. These ranchers developed a state of the art irrigated system to water the meadows, and it soon became a favorite stopping place for migrating birds on their annual trek north.(ab) In 1908 President Theodor Roosevelt, in a political scheme, create an “Indian reservation” around the Malheur, Mud & Harney Lakes and declared it “as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds”. Later this “Indian reservation” (without Indians) became the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.(a) In 1964 the Hammonds purchased their ranch in the Harney Basin. The purchase included approximately 6000 acres of private property, 4 grazing rights on public land, a small ranch house and 3 water rights. The ranch is around 53 miles South of Burns, Oregon.(a1) By the 1970’s nearly all the ranches adjacent to the Blitzen Valley were purchased by the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and added to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge covers over 187,000 acres and stretches over 45 miles long and 37 miles wide. The expansion of the refuge grew and surrounds the Hammond’s ranch. Being approached many times by the FWS, the Hammonds refused to sell. Other ranchers also choose not to sell.(a2) During the 1970’s the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), in conjunction with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), took a different approach to get the ranchers to sell. Ranchers were told that, “grazing was detrimental to wildlife and must be reduced”. 32 out of 53 permits were revoked and many ranchers were forced to leave. Grazing fees were raised significantly for those who were allowed to remain. Refuge personnel took over the irrigation system claiming it as their own.(a3) By 1980 a conflict was well on its way over water allocations on the adjacent privately owned Silvies Plain. The FWS wanted to acquire the ranch lands on the Silvies Plain to add to their already vast holdings. Refuge personnel intentionaly diverted the water to bypassing the vast meadow-lands, directing the water into the rising Malheur Lakes. Within a few short years the surface area of the lakes doubled. Thirty-one ranches on the Silvies plains were flooded. Homes, corrals, barns and graze-land were washed a way and destroyed. The ranchers that once fought to keep the FWS from taking their land, now broke and destroyed, begged the FWS to acquire their useless ranches. In 1989 the waters began to recede and now the once thriving privately owned Silvies pains are a proud part of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge claimed by the FWS.(a4) By the 1990’s the Hammonds were one of the very few ranchers that still owned private property adjacent to the refuge. Susie Hammond in an effort to make sense of what was going on began compiling facts about the refuge. In a hidden public record she found a study that was done by the FWS in 1975. The study showed that the “no use” policies of the FWS on the refuge were causing the wildlife to leave the refuge and move to private property. The study showed that the private property adjacent to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge produced 4 times more ducks and geese than the refuge did. It also showed that the migrating birds were 13 times more likely to land on private property than on the refuge. When Susie brought this to the attention of the FWS and refuge personnel, her and her family became the subjects of a long train of abuses and corruptions.(b) In the early 1990’s the Hammonds filed on a livestock water source and obtained a deed for the water right from the State of Oregon. When the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) found out that the Hammond's obtained new water rights near the Malhuer Wildlife Refuge, they were agitated and became belligerent and vindictive towards the Hammonds. The US Fish and Wildlife Service challenged the Hammond's right to the water in an Oregon State Circuit Court. The court found that the Hammonds legally obtained rights to the water in accordance to State law and therefore the use of the water belongs to the Hammond's.*(c) In August 1994 the BLM & FWS illegally began building a fence around the Hammond's water source. Owning the water rights and knowing that their cattle relied on that water source daily the Hammonds tried to stop the building of the fence. The BLM & FWS called the Harney County Sheriff department and had Dwight Hammond (Father) arrested and charged with "disturbing and interfering with" federal officials or federal contractors (two counts, each a felony). He spent one night in the Deschutes County Jail in Bend, and a second night behind bars in Portland before he was hauled before a federal magistrate and released without bail. A hearing on the charges was postponed and the federal judge never set another date.(d) The FWS also began restricting access to upper pieces of the Hammond’s private property. In order to get to the upper part of the Hammond’s ranch they had to go on a road that went through the Malhuer Wildlife Refuge. The FWS began barricading the road and threatening the Hammonds if they drove through it. The Hammonds removed the barricades and gates and continued to use their right of access. The road was proven later to be owned by the County of Harney. This further enraged the BLM & FWS.(e) Shortly after the road & water disputes, the BLM & FWS arbitrarily revoked the Hammond’s upper grazing permit without any given cause, court proceeding or court ruling. As a traditional “fence out state” Oregon requires no obligation on the part of an owner to keep his or her livestock within a fence or to maintain control over the movement of the livestock. The Hammonds intended to still use their private property for grazing. However, they were informed that a federal judge ruled, in a federal court, that the federal government did not have to observe the Oregon fence out law. “Those laws are for the people, not for them”.(f) The Hammonds were forced to either build and maintain miles of fences or be restricted from the use of their private property. Cutting their ranch in almost half, they could not afford to fence the land, so the cattle were removed.
Dwight Hammond (Father)
(g) The Hammonds experienced many years of financial hardship due to the ranch being diminished. The Hammonds had to sell their ranch and home in order to purchase another property that had enough grass to feed their cattle. This property included two grazing rights on public land. Those were also arbitrarily revoked later.(h) The owner of the Hammond’s original ranch passed away from a heart attack and the Hammonds made a trade for the ranch back.(i) In the early fall of 2001, Steven Hammond (Son) called the fire department, informing them that he was going to be performing a routine prescribed burn on their ranch. Later that day he started a prescribed fire on their private property. The fire went onto public land and burned 127 acres of grass. The Hammonds put the fire out themselves. There was no communication about the burn from the federal government to the Hammonds at that time. Prescribed fires are a common method that Native Americans and ranchers have used in the area to increase the health & productivity of the land for many centuries.(j) In 2006 a massive lightning storm started multiple fires that joined together inflaming the countryside. To prevent the fire from destroying their winter range and possibly their home, Steven Hammond (Son) started a backfire on their private property. The backfire was successful in putting out the lightning fires that had covered thousands of acres within a short period of time. The backfire saved much of the range and vegetation needed to feed the cattle through the winter. Steven’s mother, Susan Hammond said: “The backfire worked perfectly, it put out the fire, saved the range and possibly our home”.(j1) The next day federal agents went to the Harney County Sheriff's office and filled a police report making accusation against Dwight and Steven Hammond for starting the backfire. A few days after the backfire a Range-Con from the Burns District BLM office asked Steven if he would meet him in town (Frenchglen) for coffee. Steven accepted. When leaving he was arrested by the Harney County Sheriff Dave Glerup and BLM Ranger Orr. Sheriff Glerup then ordered him to go to the ranch and bring back his father. Both Dwight and Steven were booked on multiple Oregon State charges. The Harney County District Attorney reviewed the accusation, evidence and charges, and determined that the accusations against Dwight & Steven Hammond did not warrant prosecution and dropped all the charges.
Steven Hammond (Son)
(k) In 2011, 5 years after the police report was taken, the U.S. Attorney Office accused Dwight and Steven Hammond of completely different charges, they accused them of being “Terrorist” under the Federal Anti-terrorism Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996. This act carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum sentence of death. Dwight & Steven’s mug shots were all over the news the next week posing them as “Arsonists”. Susan Hammond (Wife & Mother) said: “I would walk down the street or go in a store, people I had known for years would take extreme measures to avoid me”.(l) Shortly after the sentencing, Capital Press ran a story about the Hammonds. A person who identified as Greg Allum posted three comments on the article, calling the ranchers “clowns” who endangered firefighters and other people in the area while burning valuable range-land. Greg Allum, a retired BLM heavy equipment operator, soon called Capital Press to complain that he had not made those comments and request that they be taken down from the website. Capital Press removed the comments. A search of the Internet Protocol address associated with the comments revealed it is owned by the BLM’s office in Denver, Colorado. Allum said, he is friends with the Hammonds and was alerted to the comments by neighbors who knew he wouldn’t have written them. “I feel bad for them. They lost a lot and they’re going to lose more,” Allum said of the ranchers. “They’re not terrorists. There’s this hatred in the BLM for them, and I don’t get it,” The retired BLM employee said. Jody Weil, deputy state director for communications at BLM’s Oregon office, indicated to reporters that if one of their agents falsified the comments, they would keep it private and not inform the public.(m) In September 2006, Dwight & Susan Hammond’s home was raided. The agents informed the Hammonds that they were looking for evidence that would connect them to the fires. The Hammonds later found out that a boot print and a tire tracks were found near one of the many fires. No matching boots or tires were found in the Hammond's home or on their property. Susan Hammond (Wife) later said; " I have never felt so violated in my life. We are ranchers not criminals”. Steven Hammond openly maintains his testimony that he started the backfire to save the winter grass from being destroyed and that the backfire ended up working so well it put out the fire entirely altogether.(n) During the trial proceedings, Federal Court Judge Michael Hogan did not allow time for certain testimonies and evidence into the trail that would exonerate the Hammonds. Federal prosecuting attorney, Frank Papagni, was given full access for 6 days. He had ample time to use any evidence or testimony that strengthened the demonization of the Hammonds. The Hammond's attorney was only allowed 1 day. Much of the facts about the fires, land and why the Hammonds acted the way they did was not allowed into the proceedings and was not heard by the jury. For example, Judge Hogan did not allow time for the jury to hear or review certified scientific findings that the fires improved the health and productivity of the land. Or, that the Hammonds had been subject to vindictive behavior by multiple federal agencies for years.(o) Federal attorneys, Frank Papagni, hunted down a witness that was not mentally capable to be a credible witness. Dusty Hammond (grandson and nephew) testified that Steven told him to start a fire. He was 13 at the time and 24 when he testified (11 years later). At 24 Dusty had been suffering with mental problems for many years. He had estranged his family including his mother. Judge Hogan noted that Dusty’s memories as a 13-year-old boy were not clear or credible. He allowed the prosecution to continually use Dusty’s testimony anyway. When speaking to the Hammonds about this testimony, they understood that Dusty was manipulated and expressed nothing but love for their troubled grandson.(p) Judge Michael Hogan & Frank Papagni tampered with the jury many times throughout the proceedings, including during the selection process. Hogan & Papagni only allowed people on the jury who did not understand the customs and culture of the ranchers or how the land is used and cared for in the Diamond Valley. All of the jurors had to drive back and forth to Pendleton everyday. Some drove more than two hours each way. By day 8 they were exhausted and expressed desires to be home. On the final day, Judge Hogan kept pushing them to make a verdict. Several times during deliberation, Judge Hogan pushed them to make a decision. Judge Hogan also would not allow the jury to hear what punishment could be imposed upon an individual that has convicted as a terrorist under the 1996 act. The jury, not understanding the customs and cultures of the area, influenced by the prosecutors for 6 straight days, very exhausted, pushed for a verdict by the judge, unaware of the ramification of convicting someone as a terrorist, made a verdict and went home.(q) June 22, 2012, Dwight and Steven were found guilty of starting both the 2001 and the 2006 fires by the jury. However, the federal courts convicted them both as "Terrorist" under the 1996 Anti-terrorism Act. Judge Hogan sentenced Dwight (Father) to 3 months in prison and Steven (son) to 12 months in federal prison. They were also stipulated to pay $400,000 to the BLM. Hogan overruling the minimum terrorist sentence, commenting that if the full five years were required it would be a violation of the 8th amendment (cruel and unusual punishment). The day of the sentencing Judge Hogan retired as a federal judge. In his honor the staff served chocolate cake in the courtroom.(r) On January 4,, 2013, Dwight and Steven reported to prison. They fulfilled their sentences, (Dwight 3 months, Steven 12 months). Dwight was released in March 2013 and Steven, January 2014.(s) Sometime in June 2014, Rhonda Karges, Field Manager for the BLM, and her husband Chad Karges, Refuge Manager for the Malheur Wildlife Refuge (which surrounds the Hammond ranch), along with attorney Frank Papagni exemplifying further vindictive behavior by filing an appeal with the 9th District Federal Court seeking Dwight’s and Steven’s return to federal prison for the entire 5 years.*
Hammond Family(t) In October 2015, the 9th District Court “re sentenced” Dwight and Steven, requiring them to return to prison for several more years. Steven (46) has a wife and 3 children. Dwight (74) will leave Susan (74) to be alone after 55 years of marriage. If he survives, he will be 79 when he is released.(u) During the court preceding the Hammonds were forced to grant the BLM first right of refusal. If the Hammonds ever sold their ranch they would have to sell it to the BLM.(v) Dwight and Steven are ordered to report to federal prison again on January 4th, 2016 to begin their re-sentencing. Both their wives will have to manage the ranch for several years without them. To date they have paid $200,000 to the BLM, and the remainder $200,000 must be paid before the end of 2015. If the Hammonds cannot pay the fines to the BLM, they will be forced to sell the ranch to the BLM or face further prosecution.Notes:S* Rhonda Karges – Resource Field Manager for the BLM is the wife of Chad Karges Refuge Manager for the Malheur Wildlife refuge.Rhonda specifically deals with all the BLM issues relating to the area in and around Hammond's property including “grazing denial”. Her husband just happens to be the person in charge of all the issues surrounding the Hammond's ranch such as “water and access”.b* Soon after the water rights dispute the federal government influenced the State of Oregon to change their water law in favor of federal agencies. Wildlife is now considered in the State of Oregon as an accepted beneficial use for government agencies only.k* Being convicted as Terrorist made the Hammonds felons. They have been striped of their right to have guns. The Hammond live 53 miles from the closets town and have no practical way of defending themselves or their cattle. Several times they have watched baby calves be eaten by predators and could do nothing to prevent it.
Armed with this knowledge, enter the Town Hall Meeting held December 12, 2015 from 4 - 7 in Burns Oregon where approximately 150 people turned out in the middle of a very busy holiday season, copies of the Constitution were handed out, and after a brief history of the Hammond family situation Ammon Bundy took the podium to give a short synopsis of his family's dealings with the federal government at the Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville Nevada. What then happens is very un-ordinary, a crash coarse in our founding documents and U.S. Citizens God-given rights! The attendees were attentive, courteous and had the spirit of cooperation as they came up with a plan to put the Constitution to work for them and the members of the Hammond family, not to mention those wronged by federal over-reach in decades gone by.
It all started after Ammon Bundy was sent a link to information about the Hammond family's plight. It was a sleepless night for Bundy as he did his research and was prompted to follow the path he is now pursuing. Bundy is catching flack from the mainstream media and alternative media too for his actions, along with the Harney County community, but when Glenn Beck concocts a plan claiming the same inspiration millions congregate and follow his lead, making his plan a reality! The alternative media, heaping their own criticism on Bundy and accusing him of trying to create another "Bundy Ranch". Both refusing to do the homework and taking the easy way out demonizing both Bundy and the Hammonds, perhaps being disappointed that it's not a scene from "Shootout At the OK Coral." No matter! It's the principal, and that's what the People of the County are focused on. And, Bundy is not foreign to the Hammond's fears and intentions. He visited with the family many times over many weeks before the Town Hall Meeting. He said, "[he] knew there would be a point the Hammonds would seize meeting with me, that was made known to me as the inspiration for my plan of action was revealed." It did so happen that the Hammond's were resigned to their intent to surrender themselves to the "double jeopardy" sentence forced on them by the government.
As the town hall meeting progressed questions were asked and answers given. One man asked, "how is it that we have come to this point, [in essence] not being educated about our Constitutional rights?" Bundy was humble in his answer, but the truth is, it's been by design! This is what the "dumbing-down" of American's was planned to do so the Marxist Plan to dissolve all private property rights could be accomplished! But, it's amazing that "true principles understood changes attitudes better than a study of behavior changes behavior." The group was presented with the steps to put into motion a plan for the residents of Harney County Oregon to protect their neighbor and friend's who would willingly surrender to federal authorities in just a few short weeks, demand the Hammonds release and redress for the injustices done them for decades by the federal government and it's agencies for ALL landowners past and present! Despite being offered a intermission due to the already long meeting, the group immediately started the nomination process and therefore, the Harney County Committee of Safety was formed. All further action would be under the direction of this committee, they would inform the community and take action including, "to call up able-body men and women to stand in defense of unalienable rights", among others. So blame Bundy all you want, HCCS is running the show with the support of surrounding counties and Western States property owners including the Bundy's. So, as the mainstream and alternative media continue to criticize the proceedings and actions of the HCCS/CFCF demonizing them in the process for utilizing a Hotel/Motel for operations, such as internet and office machines to produce and publicize their demands and writing articles for the local papers and community, which continue to be denied publishing after the first article was accepted by a local paper, telephone and internet interviews with news outlets and meeting with committees and public officials, post mugshots of the Hammonds like wanted criminals, and according to the media and locals, are supposed to be vandalizing property, stirring up outside militia groups to a frenzy and pointing their guns at anyone in sight! It's amazing how exciting using the Constitution as a guide to overthrow a tyrannical government Isn't! The media will continue to distract from the facts in an effort to be the most popular, get the most hits as THEY lull the sheeple back to sleep. Constitutionalists will continue to do the hard work!
It may be interesting to Utahan's that a woman stood during the town hall meeting touting Utah's bringing [their] case of "Public Lands" to the courts siting the State Board of Education's "claim" that the feds could make more money if they'd give us our land back. Bundy validated what is happening in Utah but, later for the record, disagreed with the avenue the American Lands Council was taking in general AND in the Utah situation. He then taught, through his teaching the U.S. Constitution, how nullification WORKS! When those in attendance saw how using the Constitution to nullify the federal land grab is supposed to work, they needed no more convincing, but this would show the illegitimacy of the American Lands Council and bleed their "cash cow" to death and strip them of the power they are wielding against the counties across the Western States as they "bait and switch" their plan to free the lands of the West, it is actually "sealing the deal" for the Wild-lands Project of Agenda 21's Sustainable Development.
Watch the Town Hall Meeting in its entirety.
A wise man once said, "I teach them correct principles and they govern themselves" ,while doing much of the same thing that the community of Harney Co. is embarking upon. It is also said as to preserving and perpetuating inspired documents, "by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise." Moses and Enoch were both known to have said, "I am slow of speech" when asked to be a leader among the people, sometimes using a spokesman sometimes not, but doing as they were inspired of Jehovah. Some of you may relate to these principles, and despite [our] weakness, take a stand on principle risking being ridiculed by others. I also believe that "God qualifies those he calls" and he will help us stand and put words in our mouths and thoughts in our minds. If we act, His will is made manifest in us. I state all of this because the "talking heads" and the U.S. Elites will never make any sense of the actions the good freedom loving people of America are taking to secure God's blessings upon them and their posterity. You never see these talking heads in the media stream upholding the Founding Fathers and the inspired documents they penned! You don't see them referencing God unless it is to demonize the good people of the Americas, but we aren't concerned about what "they" think, we are concerned about what God thinks. Sermon...Finished!
Actions taken by Americans to help the Hammond's in their case to defend themselves and their property.
Redress Of Grievance sent to County Commissioners, Sheriff, State Legislature and Governor including Attorney General and County Attorney and others. This letter of grievance was signed by over 100,000 Americans including Alaska and Hawaii and an overwhelming number of Oregonians by December 15, 2015, acquiring additional signatures once every 3 minutes (the total up to January 26, 2016 is not known, but if you do the math it was well above that number). The recipients had 5 days to respond, there was not one response.
- Notice of Demand
- Farm Bureau collected 8000 signatures for the Redress Of Grievance for the Hammonds.
- The Sheriff received over 3000 emails from across the United States.
- Oregon Legislature received thousands of emails.
All petitions from The People were not responded to.
You can listen to Ammon explain to Harney County residents all of this in the video posted above.
Let's get to the threats the government has made to the Hammonds. The unconstitutional "gag order" the threat to put the Hammand men in a more harsh environment of incarceration, the promise to call the note due of the money the BLM imposed for fees and damages among others. They convicted the Hammonds and deemed them "terrorists." Let's just get the facts straight. The tactics the government is using, specifically in relation to the Hammonds, but also in regards to others, are like unto the Mafia/Gangsters in the U.S. and Terrorists throughout the world. It suits them well because our current government leadership consists of those tutored by real domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers and former Attorney General Eric Holder! And, they are praised for their actions. The only thing that is missing is the viral video of the Hammond men sitting on the hard floor cross-legged confessing and listing the demands of the hostage takers! Don't forget the First Amendment says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances" and you're prohibiting the Hammonds to speak to individuals or the press, violates the protected right to do so! In this backwards society let's make it clear who the terrorist are here! Despite Sadie Renee Johnson, 23, confessed to starting a 51,000-acre wildfire in Oregon. Her justification for igniting the blaze? She wanted to help out her “bored firefighter friends.” No domestic terrorism charge, she was sentenced to 18 months and some community service! I do find it interesting that the news media, despite the Hammond gag order, SOMEHOW gets the word out that, "the Hammond Family does not want the help of the people" and they dredge up towns people who say, "we are scared of these citizen groups and want them to go away." How convenient! Once again, the media controls the narrative, but actions speak louder than words, and the Harney County Community of Safety will bear the fruit.
Citizens For Constitutional Freedom Press Conference
Many people are asking the question why Ammon Bundy and Property Owners/Ranchers from surrounding states are taking a stand in this fight, I'll state it simply again as I've done in other blog posts...
Wayne Hage said, "If you don't have the right to own and control property then you are property."
In the words of Pastor Martin Niemöller-
"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."
To quote Ammon Bundy ~
"The abuses and corruptions affecting people like the Hammonds are symptoms of a more encompassing problem. Government employees (full-time & elected) have changed their culture from one of service to, and respect for the people, to the roll of being masters. On the subject of the land, it is evident that government employees are no longer assisting the people in claiming, using and defending property. Instead, they have become the people’s competitor to the benefits of the land, and are willing to use force on those who they erroneously compete against.
The federal government adversely controls over 582,000,000 acres of the western lands, 51% of the entire western land mass. They also have recently begun claiming over 72% of western resources such as the sub-surface minerals, forestry and waters. This is in comparison to 4.29% federally controlled land in the east.
The impact of the federal government controlling the land and resources inside the western states is hard to calculate. The negative impact on the people can be seen economically, politically, and socially. In order for any people to survive, let alone prosper, it takes the land and resources to do it. Everything we eat, the clothing we wear, the homes we live in, the cars we drive, and so on, come from the earth. All physical comfort and prosperity originates from the earth. Individuals composing the federal government, understanding the origination of wealth, are reserving these resources for themselves and are willing to use force to retain them. The ramifications of their action are slowly forcing the people of the west into poverty.
Due to the fact that people cannot survive without land and resource, the federal government’s action in administering the lands for their own benefit will be the cause of public discontent and unrest until it is corrected.
The solution is very simple, the land and resources must be made available to its rightful owners, the people. This can be done peacefully if the states & counties would check and balance the federal government as designed. When this happens, the people will begin to prosper and much of the economical, political and social problem of the west will diminish. Prosperity, peace and tranquility will be the results."
BLM Shown Setting Fires That Destroyed Cattle
Duly noted, this blog is not for the "immediate gratification" crowd, or the "I'm not willing to read anything longer than 144 characters" generation. In viewing the press conferences it is very clear that the media is incapable and unwilling to do their research. It is safe to say that, even among some alternative media sources, investigative reporting is dead! In the case of the Harney County Sheriff, the local elected Sheriff is the individual's last line of defense against an un-lawful government. He should have stood between the government and its agencies and the Hammond family among others, not turning them over to the feds to answer their edicts! Constitutional Sheriffs are indispensable, and we need them in every county across the United States. Now that you have access to the facts, spread the information to your friends and neighbors so we can show our support, for freedom-loving people everywhere across this great nation.

I could post lots of updates, but just access my twitter feed (top right) to find links to video etc. I try to keep my sources as close to the ground as possible, no mainstream media. And, as always, visit the Bundy Blog.
