I guess we couldn’t let BLM hog ALL the attention, now could we?

Three of Cliven Bundy’s sons, militia seize federal building in Oregon

Three of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s sons and what they claim are 150 militia members have occupied a federal building in eastern Oregon in order to keep two local ranchers out of prison, according to local reports.

The group is believed to be heavily-armed.

According to The Oregonian, the group seized the headquarters building at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge about 50 miles outside Burns, Ore. The remote facility was closed and unoccupied at the time.

Raise your hand if you knew where Burns was without looking. (It’s in East Bumfuck County, near the Nevadaho border.)

Bundy and his supporters were in Oregon after two men were scheduled to go to prison on Monday for setting fires on federal land, according to a report by Oregon Public Broadcasting. The case has caused a stir in eastern Oregon because the two men were charged under anti-terrorism laws.

The two men, Dwight and Steve Hammond, appealed their cases multiple times, the report stated. They were required to report to prison on Monday.

The militia groups say the Hammond’s were illegally prosecuted for setting what they claim was a controlled fire because the federal government has no authority at the county level.

“The facility has been the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds,” Ammon Bundy told the Oregonian.

For the record, the Hammonds have and want nothing to do with this. Nor do any of the locals.

So far media coverage is minimal. That probably has to do with the fact that the nearest Starbucks is at least 100 miles away. These boys done holed up in a ree-mote cabin in the middle of winter. They don’t have any hostages. They aren’t a threat to any neighbors because there ain’t any.

The best thing the government and the media could do right now is NOTHING. Leave ’em be. Ignore them idjits. If they are still there in a few months when the snow melts, then maybe do something about it. Or not.

At places like Buffoon Juice they are positively giddy. “Look! Look! White terrorists! Wetoldjaso! Wetoldjaso!”

They want to know why the FBI hasn’t stormed the place shooting. They want drone strikes. If every single white terrorist involved isn’t killed by cops it will be proof of racism!

I had such high hopes for 2016.

    From the way CNN’s reporting it, I thought the whole state was invaded and held hostage. It’s mostly a BFD with BLM and SJW’s. Dey gots guns! Dey gots guns! Domestic Terrorism!!

  2. Myiq2xu says:

    The nearest Starbucks are either in Bend or across the state line in Boise.

    • Jadzia says:

      Me me! I knew where Burns was! Like you, I can’t really figure out why this is such a huge story. I mean, obviously they gotta go, but terrorism?

      • lyn says:

        I live in Oregon, and I am laughing at the occupation of the wildlife refuge headquarters. I also am a Montana native, and the militias were rumbling there in the 80s. I’ll care if they start looting and burning buildings.

        • Jadzia says:

          Seriously. I think a few people unfriended me on FB after I told them they didn’t know what the fuck they were talking about, they had no clue about how the BLM conducts itself in that part of the country (and the widespread anger that has resulted), and that if these folks were occupying a college president’s office, they would be standing up and cheering. I might have also said Jesus Christ, you idiots, this isn’t the American Embassy in Tehran and it’s not 1979.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Just reading the Judges comments (as reported by Patterico) this seems like typical prog prosecutor overkill to call it “terrorism”. It’s selective prosecution because the feds’ feewlings are hurted. It was just over a half acre of federal land temporarily scorched by a backfire during lightning storms in a remote, unoccupied rangeland grazing area. Terrorism? And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the revolution started…

    I don’t think I understand why they are there if the person involved doesn’t want their support. It does sound like government overreach as far as the terrorism charges against the Hammonds. That is usually what attorneys are for, but it appears these men need to find a new attorney because they’ve already appealed.

    As for those over at BJ and the BLM crowd calling for drone strikes and raiding the place WTF. I thought their whole thing was the police are out of control and trigger happy, blah, blah, so now that it’s white people they want them to be trigger happy??? Maybe if they’re loud enough about it, BLM will have finally jumped the shark. I fear if calls continue for some kind of action we may see a repeat of Waco or worse.

    As an aside, that is a really nice little headquarters building for some place nobody ever heard of. I envisioned a modified trailer or a metal building of some kind.

    We invited some friends over for lunch on Friday. We often get embroiled in political conversations with them, but when the conversation started to go there, I explained I am in “living at the lake” mode at least until after the NH primary. They agreed to honor that if I would answer just one question. Why was I not out there working for Hillary again? The answer I gave was- in 2008 I was consumed with the idea of getting a woman elected president. Who it was wasn’t all that important. I voted for John McCain because he chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. It didn’t happen, but we did have an historical first. Eight years later I’ve been able to see what a mistake it is to vote based on identity and not qualifications and ideology. If Hillary was a guy, I wouldn’t work for her election so I’m not. Then I turned the conversation to the lack of snow this year. Which brought up climate change, but they have no science background so I shut that one down, too. I love living at the lake.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Sarah proved the feminists were only supportive of liberal women by telling her to go home and raise her family. She was a Mayor and Governor fer chrissakes.

      • elliesmom says:

        Yes, she did. I also got hit with that on a local level. A Republican woman was running against a Democratic man for the state rep position. All of my so-called feminist friends campaigned and voted for him.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Pretty good update here, from OregonLive …. #OregonUnderAttack is trending at the top on the twitter. Lots of butthurt😉

  8. taw46 says:

    Here is a more detailed explanation of what happened with the Hammonds. While people do not want the militia there, or any trouble, it does seem like they don’t like what is going on with the family. They have already served jail time.

  15. piper says:

    Need to keep an open mind and learn as much as possible about the candidates before voting for one. Sometimes campaign speeches are just plain rhetoric.

    “Since everyone knows that Trump has spent most of his adult life as a liberal but has since recanted nearly all of his former positions, I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt and exclude any quotations over one year old. Everything you read below has come from Trump’s own plush lips in the past twelve months:

    Taxes: Trump wants to lower income taxes (though not as much as Ted Cruz), but he also wants to take a lot of voters off the tax rolls entirely, giving them incentive to vote for politicians who will vote to raise taxes and spending on the remaining people who do pay income taxes.

    Free Trade: Trump will slap high tariffs on goods from China, Japan, and Mexico, which has the potential to create more jobs in America but also to radically raise the price of consumer goods here.

    Guns: Trump currently supports Second Amendment gun rights, in contrast to his past support for gun control.

    Abortion: Trump is against abortion. On August 3, he said he would defund Planned Parenthood, but on August 11, he changed his mind, saying he wants to continue funding Planned Parenthood, finding ways to finance the “good things” they do. Since all money is fungible, that would mean the continued indirect subsidy of abortions and sale of baby parts.

    Immigration: In contrast to his previous positions, Trump is now the best candidate on immigration, wanting to build a wall, deport illegals (and then let many back), and end birthright citizenship.

    Foreign Policy: Trump wants to bomb ISIS, keep the oil, and not give aid to rebels who may be affiliated with radical Islamists. He’s pretty solid there.

    Health Care: Trump has promised to get rid of Obamacare and replace it with something “wonderful.” No further details, but he refuses to cut benefits or raise the retirement age to save Social Security, and he refuses to consider changing Medicare to a voucher program.

    Eminent Domain: Trump supports the seizure of private land for a wide variety of purposes.

    Energy: Trump has called global warming “bull****” and wants more drilling for oil and gas on public lands.

    Privacy: Trump supports the former NSA program that allowed the government to collect phone, mail, and email data on all American citizens, not merely those suspected of being terrorists.

    Budget: Trump has said not a word about reining in government spending.

    Affirmative Action and Judges: Nothing on, but a simple web search shows that Trump supports affirmative action and attacked Justice Scalia for criticizing racial preferences. The next president may appoint up to four Supreme Court justices. The prospect of a Supreme Court shifted to the left on racial discrimination, eminent domain, and government power is troubling.

    Except for immigration, foreign policy, and energy, all of Trump’s contemporary positions are more identifiable with liberal positions, which is not surprising, considering he has spent most of his life as a liberal Democrat.”

      Not going to apologize for taking up so much space here. Positions need to be known otherwise we’ll end up with another disastrous presidency. Think what you want about but this time around I refuse to be silent.

      Not a fan of either party, they’re all a bunch of liars and crooks.

      • dm says:

        Agree, but since they are all a bunch of liars and crooks you really can’t believe anything they say anyway. The best thing Trump has going for him, IMO, is attitude. Everyone (mostly) can finally admit what a big pussy BO is – apologies to all other pussies.

      • Somebody says:

        I think it’s great to post things like this, wish there was a similar break down for all the candidates. I think if there were a similar break down we’d all find that we like this stance of this candidate and that stance of that candidate.

        There is no perfect candidate nor will there ever be, so you have to decide which issues are the most important, find the candidate that most closely tracks your views and vote accordingly.

          “I think it’s great to post things like this, wish there was a similar break down for all the candidates. I think if there were a similar break down we’d all find that we like this stance of this candidate and that stance of that candidate.”

          ^this right there^

          Appreciate the list, no one candidate is perfect… In the case of Trump, he’s more of a ‘bomb’ meant to blow things up… Then again once he gets in, he could end up being just like the rest of them…. You just never know – the only thing I do know is exactly what we’ll get with Jeb! Or Hillary.

      • Somebody says:

        I followed the link Piper, it seems that run down of Trump positions was written by Ed Straker. Straker is very anti-Trump, he has some kind of anti-Trump article up all the time, so readers should take into account the author’s bias.

        • piper says:


        • DeniseVB says:

          Bias and out of context quotes are an important consideration too. I’m familiar enough with his campaign and positions, I may agree or disagree, but none of them are deal breakers for me. I know he loves his country and our military, has wildly successful global organization that he built himself (he’s main street not wall street) and is certainly not running for president for the money. After 8 years of President Pussycat Meow-Meow, we need a gorilla in the WH who has a long history of banging heads. It’s not going to be easy cleaning up Obama’s mess.

  17. votermom says:

    On the one hand, Cliven Bundy’s sons sound like hotheads. I agree that they are being idiots.
    On the other hand, they, and the Hammonds, have been pushed and pushed. It’s hard not to sympathize.
    So, yeah, the Feds radicalized these guys, imo

    • taw46 says:

      Yes, reading that article I posted above really ticked me off. Even some former govt employees who live there seem to think it it a land grab by the Feds.

      • Somebody says:

        Yes that article you posted is a very good run down of what is going on, great find Taw!
        It sure does sound like a land grab by the Feds. When did the BLM become so all powerful? They clearly overreached with the charges, but that was their intent and they found an appeal judge to agree with them.

        I have to admit that I honestly don’t understand grazing rights out west. There are ranchers here in FL and they have as many cattle as their land can sustain. The Hammond case is particularly confusing because apparently their land is “checker boarded” with public BLM land…… does that happen???

        • taw46 says:

          I have been trying to read some about it. Apparently, many ranchers who have always had grazing rights, have them pulled by BLM. And some ranchers end up selling to the Feds, as they can’t make it anymore. I believe it was in this article, that stated Hammond is the last rancher left in that area. So, does sound like they want his land. And, as part of the 2012 settlement, he has to give them first right of refusal, if he loses his ranch/decides to sell. Sad.

      • swanspirit says:

        That is what it looks like to me as well. A massive land grab. But I am sure there is some good excuse, like “climate change” or “global warming”, because cow farts or some other methane producing problem; the rights of people to land they own doesn’t matter.

    why does double jeopardy not apply in this case?

    • votermom says:

      • Myiq2xu says:

        The prosecutor appealed the sentence as too lenient. Appeals Ct. agreed, they were resentenced to minimum guideline.

        • taw46 says:

          But, they did not have to charge them under the Terrorist law, right? Couldn’t they have been charged for destruction of property? They had two burns without a permit, one only destroyed 1 (one) acre. The Hammonds extinguished both fires, according to article. Crazy.

        • Somebody says:

          Why not stage a peaceful protest, a sit in or something like that? The issue is certainly one that all of us should be concerned about, an overbearing central government taking away our land……..a government using the laws to over charge and persecute its citizens.
          If presented in the appropriate manner the majority of Americans would most likely sympathize with their plight. If they didn’t sympathize, it would at least give many pause at how powerful the government is. However, these men seem intent on setting up another OK Corral.

    The prosecutor said witnesses saw the Hammonds illegally slaughter a herd of deer on public land.

    “At least seven deer were shot with others limping or running from the scene,” Williams wrote.

    He said a teenage relative of the Hammonds testified that Steven Hammond gave him a box of matches and told him to start the blaze. “The fires destroyed evidence of the deer slaughter and took about 130 acres of public land out of public use for two years,” the prosecutor wrote.

    Williams also disputed the notion that the Hammonds were prosecuted as terrorists, like Bundy suggested.

    • taw46 says:

      Well, who knows, I have read several articles about it now. Hard to get to the real truth. The first trial, the jury only found them guilty of setting the two fires. And the Judge dismissed the testimony of the nephew, who was 13 at the time of the first fire, calling him “disgruntled”. And someone he claimed was with him, said he wasn’t there.
      People who live there, say fires have spread from private land to federal land before, but it is the first time anyone has been charged.

  27. 1539days says:

    This reminds me a lot of Ruby Ridge. Randy Weaver had tenuous connections to hate groups, but was not involved in any activities, instead choosing to separate from society. The ATF decided to go in guns blazing and ended up getting an officer and two of the Weavers killed.

    Myiq is right. Best thing to do is to leave these people alone.

        Wonder if the media is under a gag order ? Very little media coverage (unlike Ferg/Balto.), and the snowflakes are complaining. Nothing came of the Tamir Rice “protests” either. Which is a good thing, IMO.

  28. helenk3 says:

    when I read this story, I keep thinking of something that i heard a long time ago.
    one reason the wild fires are so bad in California is because so much of the land is federal and they do not clean out the underbrush and it fuels fires.
    wonder if that is what happened here?

    • 1539days says:

      One statistic that people can’t believe is that there are more trees in the US than there were when settlers first came. The reason is that hundreds of acres of unbroken trees can burn down with a lightning strike. Once forests were separated from each other and people had reasons to keep fires from spreading, each fire was much less destructive. Cutting down trees actually helps keep the others from dying.

      My dad is buried in the National Cemetery in Bourne, MA. It’s fitting because the military base the property came from is a place he served. The American Legion provided the military honors at the service. Gun salute and flag included. I assume someone at the cemetery notified the Legion because I was just told they were coming. It was a beautiful service, and I know my dad would have been pleased. The fellows from the Legion were mostly retired guys, but a couple of them were young enough they must have given up a couple of hours of work to come.

        Gavin McGinnis (he’s on Red Eye sometimes) basically said Trump is plowing the field for Ted Cruz. I don’t know if that means Trump is a big Cruz supporter or that the GOP finally has to face the fact that a real conservative is the only way they can get the votes to win in 2016.

    I think prison is dumb. Unless someone is violent or hurts a kid why spend 50 grand locking a person in a cage. Make them work give monies earned to victims. There exists a real job sorting restaurant trash. I know because I did it. I was back from Philly for a month. I needed a job no one hires you for a month. So I did day labor. You show up at 6 am and do whatever job is available. Soul crushing back breaking work but the pay is decent. Restaurants pay trash collectors to handle recycling. A busperson clears a table they are too busy to sort everything goes in one can. Trash company picks it up and they sort.. I did it for a month. 15 an hour and you get paid same day. Job sucks but I bet it beats prison. These firestarters might deserve a form of punishment but jail is too much. Think about what it costs. Not just incarceration these guys are not paying taxes while doing time. They are not spending money. I do agree with libs on jail time. Nothing good comes of it. Look at Martha Stewart. What a waste. The affluent already buy themselves out of hard time. Why not just say Martha you go to jail or you donate 100 million to St Judes. Do it like they did death benefits after 9/11. Charge a poor dope selling kid 50 thousand a billionaire 100 hundred million. Make 50 thousand payable over ten years. I feel financial punishment beats prison. I despise Hillary she and her daughter think urban planning is an answer.N o it breeds pain. . A ghetto high rise yields agony. Throwing a bunch of poor people in a verticle slum does not fix anything. Makes it worse. I have a brat. My hood decided there was not enough diversity. I do not give a flying fuck. I tend to my kid. Liberal snots do not tell me how to raise a brat. My town went section 8. I am an asshole. Kid had no shoes for gym. I bought her shoes. No big deal she is a kid with no shoes. I am an awful man but I’ d never let a kid go without shoes. Liberals decided my home was too white. I never uttered a word about kids. Facts are facts my brat has straight a’s. I am not nice. I am a cold person. I love my kid but that does not mean I take on kids from Columbia. I say fuck off.
