    OR - Militia members occupy federal building in Oregon after protest ARRESTS #3

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...test/78226600/


    "A protest in support of Oregon ranchers facing jail time for arson has escalated into an armed takeover of a federal wildlife building and an anti-government call-to-arms." More at the link...

    (CNN)Armed anti-government protesters have taken over a building in a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon, accusing officials of unfairly punishing ranchers who refused to sell their land.

    One them is Ammon Bundy, the 40-year-old son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who is well-known for anti-government action.


    http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/03/us/ore...efuge-protest/


    Among the occupiers are several members of the Bundy family, whose patriarch — Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy — was involved in an armed standoff with government agents over grazing rights in 2014.

    [...]

    “The Refuge represents a crucial stop along the Pacific Flyway and offers resting, breeding, and nesting habitat for hundreds of migratory birds and other wildlife,” a statement on the site says. “Many of the species migrating through or breeding here are highlighted as priority species in national bird conservation plans.”

    KANAB, Utah -- Sympathizers of the Oregon armed standoff rolled into this desert town Friday in pickup trucks flying American flags, ready to mourn an Arizona rancher and occupation spokesman who was killed last week in a confrontation with authorities.

    The trucks filled the parking lot of a Mormon church where a viewing ceremony preceded the funeral for Robert "LaVoy" Finicum. One vehicle had a flyer with a picture of Finicum and the words, "Murdered by the FBI," while another was scrawled with one of the rancher's favorite sayings: "By dang, I'm mad."

    BURNS -- Negotiations with the last four occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southeast Oregon continued Friday as a militia's weekend plan to escort them out was canceled.

    The new lighted sign changes from “Road Closed” to “No Unlawful Entry” to “Subject To Arrest.”

    It’s the latest indication that the coalition of law enforcement guarding the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge have no interest in additional militia members, media or curious members of the public getting within five miles of the headquarters.

    PORTLAND, Ore. — A federal grand jury has indicted Ammon Bundy and some of the men and women who joined him at the armed occupation of an Oregon wildlife refuge, authorities said Wednesday.

    Some unindicted refuge occupiers attend memorial for LaVoy Finicum

    Most of the article is about Blaine Cooper, and its worth a read, imo.

    Blaine Cooper, an Arizona man who often appeared with video gear alongside Ammon Bundy during the now more than monthlong occupation, has not been arrested or indicted.

    Cooper said in an interview Friday he wasn't sure why. "Luck maybe," he said.

    Cooper also noted he had not been armed.

    "I did mainly media updates for Ammon," he said. "I think I can make my point without violence or intimidation."

    *

    Mel Bundy, another of Cliven Bundy's 14 children, attended the memorial and the concert later Friday evening. He was in Burns, though less visible than his brothers.

    Occupier Wes Kjar helped organize a procession on horseback.

    Brand Thornton blew into a spiral-shaped shofar, a kind of trumpet made from an animal horn, outside the Mormon stake center where the events were held. He also brought the horn to Burns and to Bunkerville, Nevada, in 2014.

    None of the three has been indicted.”

    Just spoke with Victoria Sharp, witness to Bundy arrests and LaVoy's death. She tells me she still has not been interviewed by authorities.

    Oregon standoff: LaVoy Finicum memorial torn down, reward offered for answers

    Soper was planning to conduct a memorial with other coalition members by Finicum's cross at 1 p.m. Saturday, but those plans changed after he saw what happened.

    "We're going to go buy every damn flag in this town and hang [the cross] back up," he said.

    Soper said he would offer $500 to anybody with information about who tore the memorial down. He said he had no idea who might have done it.

    "Someone that's un-Christian, that's for damn sure," he said.
    More like they got word of the plans Soper had last night.

    I'm bringing over this article posted by i.b.nora on the previous thread. It's an extremely important read about how dangerous these militants are. I've been pounding this drum since the first thread and I won't apologize for being boring. Yes, militants/extremists of any ilk or nationality are dangerous, but these people have lived in this country for generations and are able to blend in and recruit easily, as we have seen. They are not "outsiders" who easily arouse distracting patriotic anti-immigrant sentiment. They are neighbors, workmates, regular people...until they act on their distorted beliefs. I have no solutions to offer...just information so no one will be surprised about what they do next.

    It kinda makes you wonder if Blaine Cooper was an insider.
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    “It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”


    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

    Referencing my post above about the danger these groups present, here is the plan to "infiltrate" local organizations.

    He then sketched out how Oath Keepers and others should infiltrate local institutions as a way to build trust with neighbors, and as a way of recruiting—what Rhodes called “shopping for talent.” In addition to targeting volunteer fire departments and churches, Rhodes recommended infiltrating neighborhood watch groups, search and rescue and other first responder groups, and VFW groups.

    Mormons don't do crosses. I read that somewhere.

    I never even thought of this. Probably why I have a cross in almost every room in my house. My subconscious at work, because I'm not particularly religious.
