Tyranny is no longer theoretical in America - it is here now and here to stay.
Anyone watching what is happening in America's west should have the majority of the nation protesting - yet partly due to the MSM control of the narrative and America's passive acceptance, we will simply continue on this road towards tyranny. Of course that is the outline provided by the prophetic scriptures so none of us should be the least bit surprised. We are well on the road to the Tribulation and evidence of such is in our collective faces every single day.
About two years the Nation watched as Cliven Bundy stood in opposition against an unjust seizure of his ranch and grazing rights by the BLM. The event grew as patriotic Americans responded to his aid. The growing protest was ultimately successful in forcing the BLM to turn tail and retreat in face of the growing support that they could no longer control.
Fast forward now to January 2, 2016 and we have a similar situation with the BLM is small town out west called Burns, Oregon. Since the start of this protest, the Main Stream Media (MSM) has been putting forth articles and news reports using such adjectives as “armed militants”, “right wing racists”, “terrorists” or “armed thugs”. Every story I read or listened to was basically the same, always one sided. I follow the belief that there are 3 sides to every story; you could call it her side, his side and the Truth. So when only one side is ever told, it is safe to assume that there is an agenda afoot. An agenda the MSM never speaks about.
So in my quest to get to the Truth, I decided to take an eight day vacation from my full time job to travel 3,000 miles via plane and car to that small town out west call Burns. What you are about to read is exactly what I witnessed and learned from my westward trip. I hope that this article, and those to follow, will help you see through the smokescreen of lies the media, at the bequest of our federal government , have been and are still telling us as the means to controlling the narrative.
Contrary to the MSM stories one finds on the situation in Burns Oregon, the real terrorist in Burns Oregon are not the framer, ranchers or loggers, nor are they the patriotic first responders. The farmer, ranchers and loggers are salt of the earth people, they are hardworking folks who bust their butts every day to earn a living as many of us do on a daily basis. The Patriotic first responders, men and women who have left behind their lives, families, friends and jobs in order to come to Burns to bring attention to the illegal land grabs and the usurpation of our Constitution. These people present no threat to the people of Burns as evidenced by the fact that they frequent the local stores, shops, restaurants and bars without any issues.
At first glance, it is easy to accept the media story that Sheriff David Ward invited the FBI to take over local control of the situation to help protect the citizens of Burns Oregon from a band of “armed occupiers”. But that is for another article. So let’s take a closer look at several key issues that most may not be seeing.
In past decades whenever there was a civil protest it was customary for the local police and maybe the use of the state police to control and insure that the protest remains peaceful. During the protests of the late 60’s when demonstration began turning violent, State’s at the request of their Governors started to call in the National Guard to assist the police in maintaining order and protecting the public.
But, here in Burns the situation is much different and potentially much more ominous and deadly, as evidenced by the murder of LaVoy Finicum, by agencies yet to be fully disclosed. Authorities acting under the color of law but not in adherence to our laws, first closed down the Burns school system, even though the “armed occupiers”, of which only 4 are now remaining, are located 30 plus miles from downtown Burns in the middle of nowhere. WHY? Why was this necessary?
Road blocks, closures and check points are now common place in in and around Burns. Many of the local people have claimed that they are being randomly pulled over by “authorities” demanding they provide their ID’s for just driving down the street. There are locals being stopped at armed check points and forced out of their vehicle at gun point while their personal belongings and vehicle are thoroughly searched.
One rancher, Thom Davis, related his story in which he had a slowly dying horse on the range that needed to be humanly put down in order to relieve its suffering. The only trouble being that he was not that far from one of these check points and feared that should he have ended the horse’s suffering with a shot to the head, he too would have suffered the same fate. A fate that was later confirmed when he talked to the sheriff.
In another case the authorities actually took their vehicle a quarter mile beyond the check point and made them walk to get it.
Yet, in another case, Alexandra Puckett, described in a facebook post, the treatment and gun point threats from authorities that her husband and his mom encountered while trying only to feed their cows.
These actions taken by authorities have more in common with those of a Military Occupying Force in Iraq or Afghanistan they do with normal police actions here in American. The terrorization of Burns and throughout Harney County is, by no stretch of the imagination, being conducted by the ever increasing militarization of Federal and State agencies. With many reports of in conjunction with an illegal and unconstitutional buildup of a foreign mercenary army of PMC’s, an invading army if you will, acting under the color of law but not in adherence to our laws. Claim as they do that they are FBI, their tactics and use of vehicle void of any US military or alphabet agency marking or insignias, and lack of compliance with US Law, even when asked they present no documentation that they are indeed FBI. A video clip of this fact can be seen here
Additionally, other armored assets from distant counties are in Burns. I ask, Is all this really necessary to protect the public from 4 people still at the Refuge located 30 miles away, armed with a few rifles and hand guns, and already contained by authorities so they cannot escape from there. Or is something else going on here?
In these photos above you can see that the armored vehicles do not have any US military or Federal Agency marking

In a recorded phone call to Major Bomar, Judge Darby explains that the forces present in Burns are most likely under the command and control of the UN and the IMF. In other words, foreign forces acting freely on US soil, a clear violation of our Constitution.
Why, you ask would foreign PMC’s be doing here on the ground in the middle of nowhere in eastern Oregon, and under whose authorization are they being allowed to operate. Could it be that they are here to seize control of these lands for the mineral rights and related wealth for foreign governments. Well, as usual it’s all about following the money. In this case the money is the mineral wealth that these lands contain. As most are aware Hillary Clinton has sold our uranium to Russia, , for personal gain and power. While China is buying up as much gold as possible, an gold is another mineral the lands out west are still rich in. Could China be laying claim to this gold as collateral for our national debt .
It is time for the People of America to start asking questions of their representatives as to whose authority these foreign forces and here operation under and why none of them are Obeying their Oath to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic!
It’s time We The People embrace our differences, differences that make each and every one of us an Individual, Unite in One Voice and Demand a Redress of Grievances to address these issues in a manner that is consistent with the procedures set forth in the US Constitution . Our Founders wrote in the Declaration of Independence :
“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundations on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall deem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness”
Therefore, We have the Constitutional Right and Duty to cast aside an overbearing federal government and build anew, by putting the Power back into the hand of its Rightful Owners… We the People.
To do otherwise will only plays into their bloody hands.
The Bureau of Land Management have been acting tyrannically for decades. As an unconstitutional agency, we have seen them in recent years not only violating the Constitution and the rights of the people, but we've also seen them take an armed violent stand against ranchers, both in Nevada and Oregon. All of it is unlawful. I want to share story that I ran across concerning two BLM employees and a miner in Idaho from 2012 during some research on the BLM. In a confrontation with the BLM, the Idaho miner asked, "You are telling me that you supersede the Constitution of the united States?" The BLM employee smugly replied, "Yes, I do."
Nicole Crossman, one of the founders of the South West Idaho Mining Association, and her husband John, along with some others were at the family's camp on July 11th, 2012 when they were approached by two BLM employees, who were identified as Ann Marie Sharkey and Jeff Weiss.
Video evidence, which has now been removed and another video made private, shows what seems to be a friendly encounter between the employees and the Crossmans. However, once Sharkey spotted mining incident tools, she demanded that Mrs. Crossman produce identification. The text of the conversation comes from Mrs. Crossman.
Crossman did not comply, but rather asked Sharkey what he law enforcement status was. Sharkey claimed to be a federal BLM agent, but when asked to get her supervisor out to where they were, Sharkey called the Sheriff's Department on her radio and claimed that she owned the Crossman's claim by way of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), which is an unconstitutional act.
America the police state has become a labyrinth of rules, regulations and mandates, the amount of which is impossible to know, let alone comply with. But you know, that ol’ “ignorance of the law is no excuse” excuse wielded by faceless, un-elected bureaucrats wins out every time against the hapless, helpless citizen. In fact, some Americans cynically believe that rules are nearly impossible to comply with, and that they are written that way on purpose so as to justify the size, scope and power of the state
That’s what seems to be the case in Ohio, whose Republican governor, John Kasich, wants to be the next president of the United States. His state’s department of education is so stringently absurd, that for lack of a piece of paper, it seeks to jail parents who dare to homeschool their kids.
As reported by Off The Grid News, two separate households that homeschool their children are facing jail time and thousands of dollars in fines and fees, for just barely missing state deadlines that they knew nothing about.
The charges are as ridiculous as the filings – “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” despite the fact that state nanniesacknowledged the children were indeed being schooled at home, in parental education programs that officials later acknowledged met the state’s requirements.
The state school system says that the parents did not provide them with proper, timely notification that their kids would not be attending public school [a requirement that only a totalitarian could love]. But in contemptuous fashion, rather than notifying the parents of their delinquent paperwork filing, education officials let the children’s’ absences from public school mount up for nearly a month, so that they could bring criminal charges against them, according to Peter Kamakawiwoole of the Home School Legal Defense Association
Guilty of … missing paperwork
Job justification, you see. Now watch – don’t be surprised if the next step is for the state to step in and remove the children from the homes of these “criminals.”
“One family filed a notice of intent when they began homeschooling last year, but did not know they had to file another notice for this school year,” Kamakawiwoole wrote [and why didn’t the state education nannies tell them they needed to file again?]. “The other family filed their annual notice of intent, but did not submit an educational assessment with their notice because they had not yet completed it, and had been told by their school district that there was no deadline for submitting the assessment.”
So they were given wrong information by school officials, and are now being made to suffer for it.
Kamakawiwoole maintained that the state education officials who are paid by state taxpayers had an obligation to contact the families when absences began to mount.
“As soon as both families realized their errors, they took action to comply with their districts’ demands,” he wrote. “After filing the paperwork, both families received a letter from their superintendent verifying that their homeschool program is in compliance with state law for the 2015-2016 school year.”
However, the school district then brought criminal charges – which will carry a maximum of $1,000 in fines, and six months in the county jail, not to mention what kind of lasting effect such a conviction might have on other constitutional rights (like gun ownership).
However, “each day that a child is ‘truant’ can be considered a separate offense,” Kamakawiwoole said, so that means jail time and fines could mount quickly.
When schools use this statute to prosecute families for what amounts to a simple clerical error, the response is disproportionate and draconian.”
Cliven Bundy Charged With Conspiracy. What About the Court Charge of Conspiracy by BLM?
Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy (shown), arrested Wednesday night at the Portland International Airport, was charged with multiple felony counts in a federal criminal complaint filed yesterday in federal court. Bundy, father of Ammon and Ryan Bundy, leaders of the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon, is accused of a series of crimes pertaining to the 2014 Bundy Ranch standoff against the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM), to wit:
• conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States
• assault on a federal law enforcement officer
• carrying a firearm in relation to a crime of violence (2 counts)
• obstruction of justice
• interference with commerce by extortion
Prosecutors say that, if convicted, Bundy, 69, could face up to 42 years in prison and up to $1.5 million in fines. Ammon Bundy, 40, and Ryan Bundy, 43, were arrested on January 26, at the same time and at the same FBI/Oregon State Police roadblock incident in which fellow refuge occupier LaVoy Finicum, an Arizona rancher, was shot and killed. According to the FBI/OSP account of the shooting, Finicum was shot because he was reaching for a loaded gun in his pocket. However, the only eyewitnesses who have spoken out thus far, other than the law enforcement spokesmen, are two women who were in Finicum’s vehicle at the time of the shooting, and both say LaVoy Finicum was shot while unarmed, with his hands in the air. (See here and here.)
It is not surprising that the left-dominated “mainstream” media have uniformly supported the federal government’s jihad against the Bundys, the Hammonds, the Hages, and other western ranchers, portraying the BLM and Forest Service as guardians of the “public lands,” while ranchers, farmers, miners, and loggers are caricatured as rapacious destroyers.
In an article entitled, “BLM won't back up claim rancher Cliven Bundy owes $1 million” Oregonian staff writer Les Zaitz reported that “BLM officials say [Bundy] kept $1 million he owes for grazing without permits.” “But that sum is unproven,” noted Zaitz, “and the agency's diligence in collecting any sum from Bundy is questionable.” The Oregonian story continued:
Bundy told The Oregonian Thursday he doesn't owe anything. And one more thing: "I've never been billed."
The BLM's public pronouncement about the debt led to head scratching among Oregon cattle ranchers, puzzled how one rancher could rack up and then evade such a debt. The BLM, which manages about one-fourth of Oregon's acreage, diligently collects fees from ranchers around the state. The total outstanding debt from Oregon ranchers in April was $18,759.
BLM officials, however, have repeatedly refused to document the basis for their $1.1 million claim and initially wouldn't say a word about its attempts to collect the debt.
As we reported previously:
Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada issued a blistering decision that charged officials of the BLM and other agencies with malicious and criminal conduct, and actually engaging in a decades-long “conspiracy” against the Hages.
Judge Jones said he found that “the government and the agents of the government in that locale, sometime in the ’70s and ’80s, entered into a conspiracy, a literal, intentional conspiracy, to deprive the Hages of not only their permit grazing rights, for whatever reason, but also to deprive them of their vested property rights under the takings clause, and I find that that’s a sufficient basis to hold that there is irreparable harm if I don’t ... restrain the government from continuing in that conduct.”
"In the present case,” declared Judge Jones, “the Government's actions over the past two decades shock the conscience of the Court."
The findings of Judge Jones in the Hage case should be borne in mind as tensions mount in Clark County, where the actions of the BLM are shocking the conscience of the entire nation….
While sympathetic to and supportive of the Bundys and other family farmers and ranchers who are being subjected to illegal and unconscionable actions by federal “public servants,” The New American magazine and this writer have not been advocates of all the actions and tactics chosen by the Bundys and their supporters, in either the Nevada or Oregon standoffs.
However, as we predicted in 2014, lawlessness and tyrannical abuse on the part of federal agencies would inevitably lead to more desperate property owners choosing confrontation to capitulation and ruin. “We’re friends with the Hages and we supported them,” Cliven Bundy told this reporter in 2014, “But look what happened to them. They fought the Forest Service and BLM in the courts for years and decades and won ruling after ruling. They exposed the criminal actions of the government. And every time they won the government — using their own money against them — appeals and delays and appeals and delays, and ignores the judge’s injunctions. They have all the resources and can just wear you down. It’s corrupt, and its impossible to get justice, and that’s why we say we have to fix it according to the Constitution, which says (Article 1, Section 8) the federal government isn’t even supposed to have the land, it belongs to the states and to the people.”
Wow - thank you for continuing to keep us informed.
Mindy - thanks so much - God Bless :)
