Fox Hollow, FL – Unless you have been living under a rock, then you have likely heard the “media’s” case against the peaceful militia protesters out in Oregon. You have likely heard how a group of “heavily armed, right-wing extremists invaded and seized a Federal Wildlife Refuge at gunpoint”. This has been the Federally controlled State Media’s stance from day one of the protest… and yes it was a protest. Mostly everything the Federal State Media has told you about this protest has been a lie that has been meant to discredit the protesters and the III% Patriot Movement.
For starters, only a small percentage of protesters in Burns belonged to any form of a militia or armed paramilitary group. The majority of protesters were unarmed ranchers and farmers from the states of Oregon, Washington State, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico. Out of the 44 protesters that occupied the Burns Wildlife Refuge, only 13 belonged to a militia group, and at no time were these militiamen and women were allowed to carry any weapons on the refuge.
The leaders of the Burns Protest laid down strict orders that this is not a combat situation, militia groups are not welcome, and for the first few days turned away hundreds upon hundreds of militia groups from as far away as Maine and Florida.
The militiamen and women that were allowed to remain were under strict orders to not:
“display or carry any long rifles, and to only conceal carry handguns when possible”
The Burns Protestors also ordered militia to not wear combat gear or camo BDU’s because this was not a showdown, armed occupation, or invasion but was a peaceful occupational protest that was no different than what hundreds of black lives matter groups did this past winter on college campuses.
The only difference was instead of hate filled racist Black Panthers doing a “sit-in” at a college campus, you had peaceful God-Fearing ranchers doing a “sit-in” at a mostly abandoned and rarely used Federal facility in the middle of no-where, BFE.
But why even protest… what was their point, and why risk their lives? These are the questions I always get from people who rely on the “media” for their information. The reason why people don’t know what really is happening out in Burns is because the media only tells you what the Feds want you to hear.
Because if the Fed’s allowed the “media” to actually tell you why these ranchers are protesting, then you would had likely joined them.
Since the “media” isn’t going to do their job, I guess its up to me.
While many disagree as to when the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) began going after ranchers and farmers in the Western States, from what I can discern the BLM started its campaign of illegal land grabs in the early 1990’s under the Bill Clinton regime. There are cases of BLM crimes dating back to as far back as the Nixon and Carter regimes, but those have mostly been isolated incidents.
The full-scale campaign of burning ranches, houses, general destruction of property, and killing cattle really kicked off under Clinton’s time in office. I guess with Janet Reno and her renegade and criminal FBI muscle, the BLM felt that it could do anything, the law is damned.
Essentially the BLM began its illegal activities sometime between Ruby Ridge and Waco, and since then they have steadily ramped up the level of criminal activity against ranchers, miners, and farmers in an attempt to clear the west of independent landowners.
Want proof? Well, we have a shit ton of proof that shows that the BLM is not only pillaging farms, ranches, and mines out west but that they are committing one felony perjury crime after another. It’s currently a felony for an LEO or Federal Agent to lie under oath, and to date, the BLM have been lying left and right as they try to cover up their illegal torching of farms and ranches out west and how they are actually stealing cattle, killing said cattle, and then either burning them or burying them in shallow graves to conceal their crime.
At the Battle of Bunkerville (i.e. the Bundy Ranch Showdown) we witnessed over a dozen cases of BLM agents shooting Bundy’s cattle and then burying them in shallow graves to cover up what they did, and then lying about doing it under oath.
To date the Fed’s have yet to convict any BLM, FBI, ATF, or Federal Marshalls that stole Bundy’s cattle, (cattle theft is a felony), and then proceeded to shoot the cattle in the head, (another felony), and then use confiscated tractors they stole from Bundy’s ranch (another felony), to destroy the evidence (another felony), and then when asked if they did this they committed perjury by claiming that they knew nothing about it (a major felony).
Do you see the level of tyranny these poor ranchers are having to live under out west?
Let’s say that you are sitting in the backyard of your posh suburban house and all of a sudden, out of the blue, a bunch of heavily armed BLM agents riding MRAP combat tanks mows down your privacy fence, tell you that they are taking your backyard because it falls under Federal jurisdiction because there are endangered snails on it and because you owe them “range fees” for using the land, and then starts tearing down your pool, shed, and burning everything down to the clear the land. They grab your dog, drag him out to a pit that they dug with your shovel that they stole, shoot your dog, bury him and then arrest you for “obstructing a Federal Agent” for protesting their actions or questioning them.
Then on top of everything you can’t get any help from the Sheriff or County Government because when the local government questions the BLM they do what they do best and lie by saying that they served you with a notice, they didn’t touch your property, they never saw your dog, and they don’t know anything about a shovel. Then they blame you for starting the fire and arrest you for terrorism and sentence you to 15 years in prison.
This is what happened to the Hammonds up in Oregon, the Bundy’s down in Nevada, and hundreds upon hundreds of ranchers, farmers, and miners across the west. The only difference between the Hammonds and the Bundys is that the Hammonds obeyed the Federal courts and reported to Federal Prison on trumped up charges for crimes they did not commit, and the Bundy’s called in the militia to stand their ground.
This is why the ranchers occupied the Burns Wildlife Refuge, they did it to get the media talking about why they are occupying the refuge, and the hopefully get the Hammond’s released given that they are rotting away in Federal Prison on phony terrorism charges over a BLM fire they did not start.
However instead of the “media” doing their job and reporting on WHY the occupation is occurring, they focused on WHO some of the occupiers were. The “media” all but ignored the 31 unarmed ranchers who occupied the refuge while focusing solely on the 13 lightly armed militia that was there to provide security.
Now I could go on and on and on, but pictures and video speak louder than words. Recently in Burns, Oregon the BLM gave no warning to Frenchglen ranchers in the above video that they were in danger, these folks lost land, animals and other property on July 10, 2012. Oregon landowners, neighbors, and citizens had to scramble to save their belongings and cattle. Ranchers, farmers, and even the local Fire Dept. were all told to stand down and if they attempt to stop the fire, despite the threat to houses and livestock, they would be arrested.
After the fire, the BLM and the Fed’s refused to pay for any damages and in many cases seized freshly cleaned land because it might contain an endangered mold of some kind.
That same year, Harney County Sheriff’s Department called John Witzel a liar when he showed this same video about the BLM burning their lands. The evidence was in front of the law and no investigation was conducted over the Miller Homestead fire. Over the past four years since, there has been numerous attempts to get the local government officials and local law enforcement to confront these ongoing situations.
The attempts have been futile because you see the Harney County Sheriff in Burns is a former Black Water employee who was appointed by the BLM. Heck, three of the County Commissioners are former Federal BLM employees. See the problem yet, and why Burns was chosen as the site of the protest?
John Witzel, a rancher himself, has little to lose now and is speaking out since the government took his land usage rights associated with the refuge land; however, many other ranchers remain tight-lipped for fear of the same retaliation from the federal government that seems to have no rules or law of the land to follow even though the U.S. Constitution says differently.
The BLM has no regard for animal or human life in this situation and the hour long video shows how blatantly the government is burning lands outside of the small town of Frenchglen, Oregon. Witzel heard of no rancher given a warning that their life and property could be harmed before or after the fires were started. The BLM did take the time to order them to stand down putting out the fires.
The tax-paying citizens of these lands were threatened with arrest if they attempted to douse the fires. Meanwhile, Oregon citizens scramble to save any of their belongings, as well as, the life of their cattle. Folks can see these cows burned alive while the BLM federal workers start more fires in the background, including one while the film is rolling that burned down the Miller’s house.
In a shocking revelations, Witzel recalls seeing a birthing cow burned alive with a partially born calf burned to death as it hangs from the birth canal. Burning cattle jumped to their deaths in ravens to escape the hellish torment.
Clearly, the BLM is not putting out the fires, they are starting them and government workers are seen suited up in labeled BLM suits recklessly burning everything. The land and surrounding properties were left unsupervised and on this particular day, it burned the Miller Homestead to the ground and tortured the cattle alive killing many of them in their corrals and leaving several alive and suffering with burns. The fire placed the farmers in extreme danger and them along with their families ran through fire to escape the inferno enveloping them.
In Seims video: BLM burns land and cattle. (Fire starts at 3:20) The video was taken on July 10, 2012, and on on Jan. 4, 2016, Oregon citizens began protesting by occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge wishing their voices to be heard by the people and those in authority who might help them in the government. The only support they are finding are citizens and protesters, their pleas have fallen on the deaf ears of the government.
Why the protest? The Harney County residents are terrorized by Federal government officials threaten citizens and promising to take their land grazing rights. Federal corruption and “in your face” approach proves the government will stop at nothing to get the land from the people.
Harney County citizens and neighbors of the Hammond’s marched to the Malheur County courthouse in Burns, Oregon, about 280 miles from Portland, to protest against the corruption and destruction of life and property.
Dwight and Stephen Hammond accused of arson terrorism were re-sentenced for an accidental fire in which they were wrongfully accused terroristic arson by the government. The Hammond had lit a backfire after a lighting store started a massive fire to protect their property and lives. The fire continued out of control and the BLM found their reason to take the Hammond’s lands charging them as “Arsonal Terrorists” as the fire spread on protected BLM property that the Feds do not constitutionally own.
These events have continued over the years with no relief from this government overreach because the local folks are either afraid of the BLM or they or family members work for the BLM and are in fear of losing their paycheck.
The irony of it all is that the BLM burns the same lands without fire safety procedures in place and any residential warnings to protect the life and property of citizens is not given. In blatant retaliation for the Hammond’s not giving up their land, they were re-sentenced to serve out their full prison term even though the original sentencing judge felt it was an outlandish sentence even at its minimum.
The BLM government officials are continuing their efforts in the name of conservation and saving wildlife but continue to prescribe burns and kill domestic animals alive. The residents voices are unheard by local law officials and others in the government as well.
How can citizens prepare against corruption within the government?
Well at this point revolution, secession, or civil war seems to be our only courses. The Federal courts will never fix this problem. We have tried the peaceful protest approach and look where it got us… LaVoy Finnicum is dead and all of the protestors are locked up in a Federal prison while the real criminals in the BLM and FBI run free. I’m not calling for revolution, secession, or civil war because doing so would be a crime, but I’m just answering a hypothetical question with a hypothetical answer.
How to help Dwight and Steven Hammond, and the Oregon Protestors?
You should now understand WHY the Burns Occupation occurred, and should also be mad as hell. If you want to join the III% Patriot Movement you don’t need a high-powered weapon, military clothes, or a buzz cut. You just need to recognize the threat and focus a good percentage of your free time and power towards defeating the threat.
You see while I have weapons, and high-tech body armor I don’t have any plans on using either of these anytime soon. Instead, I’m fighting the fight for the III% Patriot Movement online as a member of the elite “Chairborne Rangers”. You can do far more harm to the Feds and their tyranny on Twitter with your keyboard then you could ever do alone with a real weapon.
Information is power… join the III% resistance… we want and need you!
