Government land grabs are becoming more and more prevalent every day. There are executive agencies (BLM, USFWS, USFS) taking private land through Eminent Domain and regulatory acts. The federal government is seizing more private land under the auspices of environmental preservation and national parks and at the same time, filing for Land Patents on Land seized. We have even observed the military taking private land and calling the seizure necessary under the 1947 National Security Act. American Framers believed that the Right to secure and own property was vital to the preservation of Liberty and Freedom and placed that unalienable right in the Constitution for the united States of America (that would be, the one Obama, the Constitutional Scholar who never wrote anything on the Constitution, the one he calls unimportant and too confusing to understand).
Here at Fix America we have watched and observed this incident unfold. At every turn of events, facts were checked and Mr. Marsico attended the rally and the Saturday town Hall meeting. As more information was gathered and checked, it seemed that there was a much bigger story than one hundred and twenty-nine acres of burned grass land (being burned as a back fire set to protect buildings and livestock) by the Hammonds. With sentences served for a supposed crime that even Tim Colahan, the local district attorney, said held no merit and Judge Michael Hogan, the judge that herd the case, said that the Hammonds did nothing that had not been done by other ranchers for the last seventy years.
The political appointment by Obama of the U.S. Attorney for Oregon, Amanda Marshall who pressed the resentencing issue, and Judge Ann Aiken Federal superior Court, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, to serve the maximum five year sentence, ten years after the fact and after both Hammonds had served their time and had been released form a California prison seems more than cruel and unusual punishment. The Hammond Case follows a well established pattern of abuse at the hands of the Corporate Federal Government and it’s Corporate agent, the BLM, by using false and scurrilous charges of eco-terrorism to put Dwight and his son back in prison which obviously will put them out of the ranching business eventually. The U.S. Attorney for Oregon has now taken a leave of absence for health reasons. Please see:
It should be understood by the Esteemed Readers of Fix America, that this trail and other paths of events has led to the suspected incident being a False Flag Event led by government instigators. Just one of the side paths being pushed by the Privately owned major media is that this incident is an Armed Takeover of a Government Building. The Government Building was the home of John Sharff
which was taken over by the Government. Another side path is the simple fact that people in Oregon Open Carry: every one is able to be armed and carrying which is not similar to an armed Takeover. There were a few hundred armed Americans at the rally in Burns, but that did not constitute an Armed Takeover of the Burns Rally. The occupation of the home occurred by people carrying side arms and long guns, because they usually carry firearms and the weather at the time was six below zero. Not a bad reason to seek shelter. Another side path is as far as is known by people that were at the Home/Headquarters of the Malheur Refuge no Militia members were present as they had never gone to the Refuge in the first place.
In the late 1880s, plume hunters decimated North American bird populations in pursuit of breeding feathers for the hat industry. Hunters targeted large flocks of colonial nesting birds and shorebirds, killing birds indiscriminately and
orphaning chicks. Eventually, the large numbers of colonial nesting birds on Malheur Lake were discovered by plume hunters. In 1908, wildlife photographers William L. Finley and Herman T. Bohlman discovered that most of the white herons (egrets) on Malheur Lake had been killed in 1898 by plume hunters. After 10 years the white heron population still had not recovered. With backing from the Oregon Audubon Society, Finley and Bohlman proposed establishment of a bird reservation to protect birds using Malheur, Mud, and Harney lakes.
Malheur National Wildlife Refuge was established on August 18, 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt as the Lake Malheur Reservation. Roosevelt set aside unclaimed government lands encompassed by Malheur, Mud and Harney Lakes “as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds.” The newly established “Lake Malheur Reservation” was the 19th of 51 wildlife refuges created by Roosevelt during his tenure as president. At the time, Malheur was the third refuge in Oregon and one of only six refuges west of the Mississippi.
The Refuge constitutes a small percentage of the Northern Great Basin’s total acreage but is a tremendously important source of wildlife habitat relative to other portions of the Northern Great Basin. 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. Many of the species migrating
through or breeding here are highlighted as priority species in national bird conservation plans.
The refuge now encompasses 187,757 acres of wildlife habitat. The 65,000 acre Blitzen Valley was purchased in 1935 and added to the refuge to secure water rights for Malheur and Mud Lake. With the creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1933, the refuge was able to use this additional manpower in 1935 to begin major improvements on the refuge. The CCC constructed most of the infrastructure in the Blitzen Valley including the Center Patrol Road which travels through the center of the refuge. The 14,000 acre Double-O unit was added to the refuge in 1942 and provides important shorebird habitat, as well as waterfowl nesting areas. Malheur Refuge is situated within the Harney Basin in southeastern Oregon. Located in the Northern Great Basin, this portion of
the State is lightly populated, generally arid with cold winters, and characterized by wide open spaces.
Comment by Kelly Tharp:
“I hope they are taking care of the Malheur headquarters. That used to be the home of my great uncle John Sharff who was the Malheur manager. He was a sheep herder and worked well with the ranchers, then when he retired the new manager was from back east, college educated and turned their beautiful home into an office. The house was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and it was a public work relief program that operated from 1933 to 1942. Florence, Johns wife, was my grandmothers cousin and the home was always covered in beautiful flowers…”
Following is a Post by Mars Hoffman that should be read and understood:
“ATTENTION: THIS MUST BE READ ALL THE WAY TO THE END AND THEN PASSED AROUND FAR AND WIDE. WE HERE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR SOME FEED-BACK. WE WILL ALSO ENTERTAIN CALLS; WHEN ANNOUNCED VIA THIS PAGE.
This came from the Nevada Militia page….I’m very troubled by this. This guys says it’s all a set up by the Feds.
…Everybody… please gather around and listen to what I am about to say..Then either shut your mouth, or share this far and wide. If you have ANY faith in me as a leader you will heed what I am about to say. If not..I want nothing to do with you. simple as that.
The key to victory in any battle is the ability to remain calm in any given situation. What we are seeing right now is a whole bunch of people acting based solely on raw emotion. This is very bad and I’m about to explain exactly why. I am not letting my emotions make my decisions for me, but instead, looking at this from a calm, level headed, common sense approach.
What you are all witnessing right now right now in Oregon has the makings of a full on false flag event. And I will prove that to you to the absolute best of my ability. Should you choose to look at this from a logical perspective you will see I am 100% correct. Some of what I will tell you is speculation based on my own experience and experiences of others I have talked to throughout this ordeal, but most of what I am going to tell you is documented verifiable fact.
Back during the Bundy situation, Ryan Payne declared himself the unofficial “leader” of the militias present at the Bundy ranch. Nothing could have been further from the truth. In fact, none of the militias listened to him at all. The ONLY ones who listened to him were the Bundy’s, Blaine Cooper, who Payne claimed was a “professional security consultant’, who turned out to be nothing more than an ex con, and Buddha bear (nice name) who he also claimed was a “professional security consultant”, but was later discovered to be nothing more than a tattoo artist thug. The militias ignoring these three, is precisely why that situation didn’t turn into a blood bath. (strangely enough all three are present at the refuge)
I and Scott Woods were asked on one occasion, by Payne to go and destroy BLM equipment in the middle of the night. We refused, stating that that’s not why we were there. We were there solely to defend the family. That very same night he rushed off in a car with a loaded AR to START a violent altercation with LEOs who supposedly had pulled over members of the Armenian Militia off exit 10 near the ranch. This report was never vetted nor was it looked into before he rushed off. It is also well documented that Payne had tried to incite other militia members to start violent altercations with the authorities who were present there. all of which were refused by militia members..all for the same reason…we were NOT there to start a fight…but to DEFEND the family. When people refused, Payne, Cooper, and Buddah ostracized them and ran them off the ranch. This is why most militias left the ranch when they did. One other point worth mentioning was there were militia members present with long range 50 cal sniper rifles… but instead of positioning them on the hilltops surrounding the ranch, Payne had them stationed down in a valley where they were effectively useless…does that sound like the makings of a solid leader to you? And also Payne was always sure to make certain that there was ONE completely UNDEFENDED access point to the ranch.. I brought this up to him asking why he would leave our back door completely open and undefended… and he completely blew me off… What he was doing in fact, was leaving an access point open for authorities to bum rush the ranch if that’s what they felt needed to be done. And I have the witnesses to prove it.
Now throughout the situation Payne made repeated threats to law enforcement on NATIONAL media. There’s VIDEO of him doing this..its not hard to find. Yet oddly enough with all that evidence he was never charged with anything during or after the standoff. Does that seem ODD to anyone but me? (not if you’re a paid provocateur) Now in this situation at the refuge, he has publicly stated to a reporter that he has snipers set up to kill any federal official who approaches the refuge. Yet still.. no charges are being filed against him. making threats like that, you’d think they’d swoop in and scoop him up… but noooo.. because they’re giving patriots time to get there… Don’t think for one second that with a couple of phone calls to the proper alphabet agencies, those schmucks wont be SORELY outnumbered. Tell you what… if you think LEO’s don’t take threats against them seriously… go find the nearest cop and walk up to him and tell him you plan to kill police officers and see what happens to you.. See how long it takes for you to end up in prison.. yet Payne roams free..as does Cooper. Better yet go ask Schuyler Barbeau what happens when you threaten a public official… oh wait…you can’t… hes in prison… because of a Facebook post. Funny how that works huh? Also… has anyone else noticed that until this situation popped up Payne was damned near SILENT on social media? Wonder why that is… Hell, Most of you don’t even know who he is… He also claimed to be an Army Ranger, But when we had someone at the Ranger School check their records… they said NO Ryan Payne had EVER attended that school… whoda thunk it?
Myself and Scott begged the Bundys, after we left (via phone) to stop listening to Payne..that he was a plant. But they refused to listen. Payne wouldn’t let ANYONE talk to the Bundys with out him being present..or close by. The Bundy’s are good God fearing Christians but they are TERRIBLY naive. They truly believe Payne is one of the good guys. Which is why they are at the refuge now. Do you honestly think for one second it was AMMON’s idea to take that building? If you do… you’re a fool. They’re not that type of people. Ammon has been suckered into this standoff by Payne and Cooper. He truly went up there with the intention of helping the Hammonds, and when they were refused, The Bundys were made to believe that taking a stand against the BLM was the answer.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Now Cliven is on his way there.. and the govt is finally going to get their revenge on the Bundy’s and in doing so gain the access they need to their land. All the major players in the operation of that Ranch will soon be together at the wildlife refuge… that’s no coincidence. I assure you.
Payne, Cooper, Pete Santilli… All well trained provocateurs who are doing everything in their power to lure patriots to the ranch.. Case in point…Santilli just released a video try to say that the FBI was TRYING to shut him down.. Don’t you think if that were the case…with ALL of the resources the FBI has, they would just go ahead and do it…do you really think this schmuck is smart enough to outsmart the ENTIRE FBI? Think about it…
Let us continue on.. why the wild life refuge? how in the blue hell did they even know it existed if this wasn’t PRE-PLANNED? And why were their trailers staged up there THURSDAY night if this was all “unplanned”? And if they wanted support so bad…why not let the Oregon 3%’ers and militia in on this? I’ll tell you why.. because they would have had no part in it and vehemently refused if they had known…. as was demonstrated by their response once they found out. SO..that being said.. why pick a place so remote.. I’ll tell you why.. the same reason the Bundy ranch was picked.. it’s remote… no civilian casualties. And if everyone out there is killed there’s no witnesses allowing the govt to write the narrative of what happened afterwards..You can bet any reporters out there will be silenced should they actually get close enough to catch anything worth documenting unless of course they’re willing to report what they’re told to… the reason it failed at the Bundy ranch was because the community got so involved… NOT the case at the refuge.
Next.. why has a detachment of Delta Force been deployed to the area? (does anyone remember that Delta was ALSO at WACO?) 19 sets of orders were cut for operators to be at Waco. Why in the Blue hell would they send Delta to squash a bunch of unorganized mostly unarmed protesters? I’ll tell you why.. one of the things Delta specializes in is hostage rescue.. I.E. blow open a door rush in and shoot the bad guys but save the good guys.. I.E. embedded reporters from the national media who can later report the protesters fired first.
This is happening EXACTLY the same way WACO did… you know who else claimed, “We won’t fire first but if attacked we’ll fire back..”? David Koresh. Again well documented fact. This situation is going to turn out the exact same way. If these guys don’t stand down now, while the sheriff is giving them an opportunity to, I promise you.. its going to turn out the exact same way. I’ll bet my life on it.
Now lets look at poor John Ritzheimer. This guy is exhibiting all the classic signs of PTSD. It is my belief that he is not in on this plan but like the Bundys… has been suckered into believing what he is doing is right. This poor bastard is still fighting the war in his head and Assholes like Payne and Cooper are feeding into his delusions that dying for this cause is what he needs to do. They are taking advantage of his big heart and his undying love for the country he fought for and twisting him into a suicidal maniac. Im sorry if that stings.. but I assure you its the cold hard truth. How could ANYONE in their right mind think that dying trying to fight the BLM of all things is going to “change the govt”? How ignorant do you have to be to think that fighting and dying out there is going to somehow make the BLM fold up shop and stop what they are doing.
Sorry kids… the ONLY people who can stop the BLM are in DC.. and I assure you, as long as People like Harry Reid and the like are around… the BLM is not going anywhere.. no matter how much we fight them and run them off. We ran them off at the Bundy ranch…and how much did that slow them down..? we ran them off at the sugar pine mine… how much did that slow them down…? What makes anyone think this will be any different? Mind boggling I tell you.
Now to those of you who are buying into this whole “this will galvanize the movement line of crap”.. What this is REALLY going to do is crush the patriot movement. They are going to hit these people with such force with such blinding speed and a level of violence of action that most patriots are going to turn and look at their own children and go there’s no way in HELL I want that to happen to MY family… thus the reason there are women and Children being taken to the refuge. The govt has already shown at WACO and Ruby Ridge just how willing they are to kill American Children. Don’t think for a second they wont do it here as well.
All the classic signs of a psyop. They plan to frighten the people into not even daring to ever take a stand against them again.
So what then of the militias? We’ll still be here but will be forced into hiding.. those who aren’t will be scooped up and charged as Domestic Terrorists. Do you for even ONE second really believe that this happening at the same time as Obama prepares to announce a whole new slew of gun restrictions is really a coincidence? Its not.. Not at all. What this is going to be used for is an EXCUSE to show why we need to disarm the American people for their own safety.. or put into place such SEVERE restrictions on owning firearms that we will NEVER be able to properly defend ourselves against a tyrannical govt. Hitler did it… Stalin did it… Mao did it… now Obama’s doing it. History is repeating itself in front of our own eyes and we’re too blinded by raw emotion to recognize it.
If everyone picked up and left that refuge tomorrow, what do you think Payne and Cooper would do? They’re so die hard…think they’d stay and fight? I mean that’s what they’re saying… they’re not leaving right? Prepared to die for the cause….right?…. My ASS! Nope… they’ll slink back into the shadows and wait for the next opportunity to bamboozle good patriots into signing their own death warrants. And of course… once again.. neither will be charged with anything. And good peoples lives will be risked for nothing.
We’re being goaded into a fight here people…you NEED to see that. And every ONE of you who is advocating for this… Know this… if these people die… it will be YOUR fault. Not mine, nor will it be the fault of ANYONE in ANY unit I command. I simply wont allow it. THIS is the reason my troops follow me.. because I take the time to think these things through…to look at them from ALL directions… not based on sheer emotion as so many of you are doing now.
It was stated, dare I say, TAUGHT to me today by a close friend who is an ex special forces operator, that wars are not won by people taking rash actions such as the ones that have been taken here. Wars are won with proper planning. That shit hit me like a brick.. And I Will NEVER forget those words as that is the smartest thing I have heard throughout this entire ordeal.
THAT’S how you win a battle. THAT’S how you minimize casualties.. THAT’S how you win a war. None of that was done here. Therefore, these guys are all as good as dead.. Why do you think the local sheriff there just said these guys need to leave WHILE THEY STILL CAN… Because he KNOWS whats going to happen to them! He’s OFFERING them a way out and DAMNIT THEY NEED TO TAKE IT!
The first thing I teach my guys is when they make unexpected contact with the enemy is, the proper response is to fall back, reset and take back the initiative. That’s what we need to do here. Will it look like a loss in the eyes of the people? Absolutely. But hey, you all had better get used to the fact that we are not going to win every battle.. BUT… in the eyes of those who put this whole bullshit plan together… this will be a CRUSHING defeat…Even though it will never be made public knowledge. We have let the enemy pick the time and place of our fight…and that is about to prove to be a fatal mistake. Mark my words.
But we can still snatch victory out of this whole screwed up mess…if ONLY you will listen to me.
How do we win then? Well I’ll tell you…
We get those people out of there!!!!!
Anyone and everyone who has contact with the people there needs to PLEAD with them to get the hell out of there… Then, we regroup, and WE pick the time and place of our fight…not the enemy. WE make THEM react.. WE pick ground that is most sensible for a proper defense, not a building in the middle of a field that has absolutely NO defensible positions as in the case of the refuge. Then we properly equip, plan, rehearse, and execute. If you want to win a war…that’s how you have to do it. Most importantly.. we expose frauds like Cooper and Payne for who they truly are. and drum them out of the movement before they really get someone killed.
So that my take on this mess… listen to me if you want, ignore me at your own peril… either way it is of no consequence to me. I will not debate this issue, and NO ONE will change my mind about this… I have done too much research into this situation to allow ANY armchair commando to dictate my actions for me. This is the war you all wanted so badly… now either lead follow or get the fuck out of the way. End of story.
(please note this post has been edited to provide more factual evidence to include mention of Delta at Wac
DAMN IM GOOD.I SAID EXACT SAME THINGS ABOUT LOCATION.ITS INCONSEQUENTIAL IN THAT ITS IN DESOLATE AND THAT NO INNOCENTS ARE IN ARE.I SAID IT BETTER THE 1ST TIME BUT THATS THE GIST
