The land out here is vast, in some places stretching as far as the eye can see in between homes, towns, any signs of humanity.  It is rugged and dry, and holds a sense of emptiness, of loneliness.  But to the observant wanderer, it is in fact a place full of life, from the twisted juniper trees to the strange-colored lichens spreading over the ground.  One can find traces of the animals that have passed through, coyote scat, rabbit tracks, the remnants of a cougar kill up in a tree, huge bird nests up in the craggy cliff bands.  And, of course, the evidence of people, shotgun shells, broken glass, old appliances, and cows.

People seem to have a habit of taking what they have for granted until threatened with its loss.  It is certainly true when it comes to land use.  We have a long history of over-use, it is evident in any industry that involves using or extracting natural resources.  It begins with discovery, then fortunes are made, and more and more people jump on board, and then, the resource begins to run out.  That is the point at which people either destroy the resource altogether, or take steps to protect and manage it.

It is undeniable that humans impact the environment, our proliferation around the world has clearly changed the land.  It is also undeniable that natural resources are required for our survival.  We need food, water, shelter, just like every species.  And this need, and all the times we’ve allowed it to devolve into excessive over-use of resources, along with the desire to protect what we don’t want to lose, has left us with a decades-old, emotional, sometimes violent debate.

Once again, this debate has exploded out of its usual confines of rural America and into the national spotlight with the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife refuge in Harney County.  Ignoring the very basic fact that nature seeks balance, the media is frantically fueling the polarizing rhetoric.  Either you are an angry, spoiled white guy with lots of guns attempting to grab all of the public land, or you are against the occupation and want the spoiled white guys arrested, maybe even bombed with drones.  Few seem willing to pause long enough in the argument to really listen to each other.  Just what is the beef with Federal land management?

The situation in Harney County presents a good starting place to look at this question because there is a long history of problems there.  Anyone who has paid any attention to the story of the refuge occupation knows that it began with a protest rally in support of Dwight and Steven Hammond, who were sentenced for arson under the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act for starting two fires on their land that spread to BLM land, burning a total of 140 acres.  The group occupying the refuge want the Hammonds freed from prison, among other things.  The Hammonds’ battle with the BLM has been going on for decades, long before they lit the two fires that got them branded as terrorist arsons.  And they aren’t alone.

Mr LaVoy Finicum, recently executed for the crimes of trespassing and squatting, is a published author as many of you know. His book is called ‘Only by Blood and Suffering’ and is available on Kindle for $6.99. I will provide a link at the bottom.

I don’t know of a website or fund yet to help his survivors but when I do I’ll publish it. If one of you know of one already set up and running, please let me know in the comments.

But what we can do in the meantime is to buy a copy of the man’s book. He’s still getting paid whether he’s dead or alive. I don’t know if the federales have seized or put a hold on his family’s accounts, but if they have, they gotta release them sometime.
You’ll see at the link that the book’s available for free on Amazon Prime, but that doesn’t give the family any relief. Pay the 7 bucks.

Not only will buying the book put money into his family’s coffers, it will help to keep his name and memory alive. I believe it was the Greeks who said that a man is immortal as long as his name is remembered.

ONLY BY BLOOD AND SUFFERING

Please spread this on your FB pages, blogs and other social media. No need to credit or link to me, let’s just get a few books sold. Feel free to copy and paste.

Any doubt anyone has that the left in this country are the sickest,most truly depraved people on the planet-

Stories about the Malheur protests,the arrest of Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and the killing of Lavoy Finicum by the stormtroopers.

Just read the comments…

The “Minds” of the Left

The single most important thing you need to understand about the BLM,EPA,USFS,and USFWS is the reason they are pushing ranchers,loggers,farmers,and individuals off of land that’s often been in the families for generations.

The whole clusterfuck is the fault of the environmental-emphasis on the mental-movement,and the endless stream of lawsuits filed against the USFWS,BLM,USFS,and the EPA.

These lawsuits not only cost hundreds of millions,if not billions of taxpayer dollars-the lawyers from groups like the Center for Biological Diversity-many,many more lawyers than biologists-earn a living from these lawsuits.

Groups like The Center for Biological Diversity,Wild Earth Guardians ,Natural Resources Defense Council to name a few of the major serial lawsuit filers,sue and then settle for whichever agency they sued setting aside even more land that is restricted from most or all human activity.

Most of these groups file their suits by abusing the endangered species act-which by the way must go-it’s time to get rid of it to stop this abuse.

Think back to the northern spotted owl,and the 70’s eco-freaks spiking trees,maiming loggers for life,chaining themselves to trees and/or equipment.

They got almost all logging stopped on USFS lands throughout the intermountain west,and the Pacific NW by abusing the ESA.

After all the drama and bullshit-logging was NEVER a danger to the northern spotted owl-a larger,more aggressive species of owl had displaced the spotted owl.

No apologies to the loggers out of a job-or maimed for life when their chainsaws hit a spike in a tree-there was no anti-kickback feature on chainsaws,or cut proof chaps, helmets with face shields back then-if the saw kicked back and hit your arm,leg,head,face,wherever-you got seriously effed up.

None of the people or groups involved ever admitted they were wrong either.

One of the worst abusers of the ESA,and most prolific filers of lawsuits is The Center for Biological Diversity.

They’re who got all the Nevada land around the Bundy ranch closed to grazing to protect the “endangered” desert tortoise-the same tortoise that the USFWS was euthanizing at a tortoise “sanctuary”in the same part of Nevada.

The very same Center for Biological Diversity that sued the EPA in an attempt to ban ALL lead ammo-using junk science,and made up bullshit.

The very same Center for Biological Diversity that passes out condoms with picture of “endangered species”-because they hate humans.

The very same Center for Biological Diversity that got farmers banned from drawing irrigation water from the San Joaquin/Sacremento river delta due to the presence of a 3″ fish-the delta smelt

The very same Center for Biological Diversity that sued for continued ESA protection for the gray wolf-long after the wolf reintroduction fiasco had reached the goal of 300 wolves,or 30 breeding pairs,which caused a decade long legal battle,and took an act of congress to get the gray wolf removed from  ESA protection. Immediately after that loss,the CBD filed for ESA protection for gray wolves in the great lakes area,and the Mexican gray wolf in NM and AZ.

The wolf lawsuits…all 10 pages worth.

There’s another 3″ fish,the Santa Ana sucker,that the CBD filed and won lawsuits over granting ESA protections,and preventing nearly a million people from drawing residential drinking water from an existing reservoir.

The very same Center for Biological Diversity who’s metrosexual members showed up in Burns Oregon,and at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge

Is everyone starting to get the picture? CBD et-al file a blizzard of lawsuits in fed court-mostly in the 9th circus,against USFWS,USFS,EPA,BLM.

USFWS delcares whatever toad,frog,lizard,tortoise,mouse,rat,snake,bird,or fish is the “endangered species” of the day,week,month,year,or decade must have ESA protections and closes off millions of acres of “public” land to everyone except for the enviro-nazis and the few humans who  only want to go hiking and take pictures  are allowed-along with biologists “studying” the supposedly endangered species-so they can file yet another lawsuit falsely claiming the need for continued ESA protection-like they did with the gray wolf in the northern Rockies-as the wolf population swelled to 10 times the goal for removal from ESA protection.

This scam is played out over and over and over-and each time,more “public” land is closed to the public,and more families lose their land,more loggers,ranchers and farmers lose their jobs.

The Center for Biological Diversity is only one of more than two dozen such groups comprised of enviro and/or animal “rights” whackos who continuously file lawsuits in fed.court.

This shit has been going on for over 35 years now-since the first “earth day” in 1970-close to 4 decades of environmental and animal “rights” whackos dictating public lands policies via lawsuits abusing the Endangered Species Act.

This is why sawmills closed,loggers are unemployed,ranchers and farmers and anyone else in the way of the feds settling of enviro-nazi lawsuits is being pushed off of their land.

Those who refuse to sell are treated like the Hammonds were/are being treated.

De Oppresso Liber?  We Shall See

Via Oath Keepers-

This is addressed first and foremost to the entire U.S. military, but especially to the military Special Operations Command and community.    Secondly, it is addressed to federal LEOs, and especially to their SRTs, such as the FBI HRT (many of whom are former military special operations).  This comes from combat arms and special operations veterans, along with veteran Sheriffs and police officers, within the Oath Keepers organization:

Critical Warning:

The Ammon Bundy led occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon must be handled as a normal, non-crisis, law enforcement matter, and preferably by Oregon Sheriffs (who are organized as the Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association), and their deputies, together with the local community there in Harney County, OR.   The locals can resolve this, if given enough time.   The Oregon Sheriffs can resolve this, if given enough time.

This situation must not be handled in a military or paramilitary fashion, using military assets, military rules of engagement, or otherwise attempting to end it suddenly by use of dynamic assault, resulting in catastrophic loss of life, as has occurred twice in recent American history, with horrific results (at Ruby Ridge in 1992, and at Waco Texas in 1993).  If you do it “Waco” style here, you risk pushing this nation over the edge into a civil war, because there are “no more free Wacos.

This is not an emergency situation, unless you turn it into one.  Ammon Bundy’s occupation of an empty building is essentially the same as civil-disobedience sit-ins that the political left has engaged in for decades, from anti-war and civil rights protesters in the 60s and 70s (including a nineteen month occupation of Alcatraz by American Indian activists), to Occupy Wall Street Movement and Black Lives Matter activists today.

These ranchers, cowboys, and veterans just happen to be armed, as westerners tend to be.   Get over it.  There are no hostages, there are no close-by neighbors at risk, there is nobody there except those who want to be.

So tread lightly, and at most handle this like the Montana Freeman standoff, where the FBI was patient and waited them out, with a peaceful surrender coming after eighty one days.   In this situation, the locals will likely have this resolved long before that length of time.  Regardless, there is no rush.

Despite that reality of there being no emergency here, we have very good reason to believe that ideologue leftist bureaucrats within the Obama Administration – such as within the D.O.J., and their politically minded “perfumed prince” puppets within the D.O.D. – are pressuring you to prepare to use military assets and military rules of engagement to conduct a dynamic raid.   We are an organization of current serving and retired military, police, fire-fighters and other first responders, and we have contacts at every major military installation in America (including Joint Base Lewis-McChord), and at the Pentagon.   We hear things.  We’ll just leave it at that.

And we know that the Obama Administration considered the use of military force during the Bundy Ranch standoff in April, 2014, pursuant to Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities.”  Fortunately for all Americans, they decided not to do it.  This fact was confirmed by a May 28, 2014 Washington Times article:

A U.S. official said the Obama administration considered but rejected deploying military force under the directive during the recent standoff with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his armed supporters.

From Inside the Ring: Memo Outlines Obama’s Plan to Use the Military Against Citizens

So, the military force hammer was, in fact, on the table during Bundy Ranch, as we suspected.  Please don’t try to tell us it’s not on the table again, now.   We know it is.  The only question is whether the Obama Admin leftist weenies will be foolish enough to try to actually use it, and if they do, whether you will be foolish enough to obey their idiotic orders and obediently act as that hammer.

In addition, it is clear you federal LEOs have not handled this in the normal law enforcement manner of cordoning off the area and immediately initiating negotiations.  Why is that?  Why has there yet to be even an attempt to open direct lines of communications between you and Ammon Bundy, as members of Pacific Patriot Network, Idaho III%, and Oath Keepers on the ground in Burns, OR have been repeatedly urging you to do for the past week, to no avail?

Don’t do it.  Do not follow unlawful orders if the Obama Administration fools decide to go “full retard.”  No matter how eager the politicians like Harry Reid are for Ammon Bundy’s head, after the black eye Ammon and his family gave them at Bundy Ranch in 2014, and no matter how much they pressure you to “make an example” out of these guys, you cannot drop the hammer on a bunch of ranchers, cowboys, and veterans sitting in an empty building without it blowing up in all of our faces.  Treat this with kid gloves, like the Montana Freeman standoff, instead of like the Waco standoff, or risk setting off a civil war.

The stuffed-shirt, pencil necked metrosexuals inside the D.C. beltway will not be the ones bleeding and dying in the chaos that could follow (at least not at first).

man_plucks_eyebrows_spornosexual_metrosexual_shutterstock_1000x667

Guys like this, in D.C., won’t be the ones who will bleed (not at first).

It will be you current serving military and LEO, and it will be us patriotic veterans, along with our many active duty brothers who still take their oaths seriously (and we are truly everywhere, including within your immediate ranks) who will bleed.  It will be the warrior class of America killing each other while the political hacks laugh (they hate you too, don’t you know).

Read the rest @ Oathkeepers here

A leftist/libtard site is mocking those standing up for their rights at the Malheur wildlife refuge.

They are soliciting donations to leftist “conservation” groups-groups that oppose any human activities on our public land that they do not approve of.

These groups do not approve of:

hunting,trapping,ranching,logging,mining,fishing,riding ATV’s and dirt bikes-they only support hiking and taking pictures,they do not consider ranchers,farmers,loggers,hunters,trappers,fishermen,ATV riders,dirt bike riders,or miners to be the public,their public only includes themselves and their fellow enviro-nazis.

These people have zero respect for the people who have lived for generations in the areas they demand be turned into “national monuments”,”wilderness areas”, “wildlife refuges”, or “nature preserves”.

They support nonsense such as preventing farmers from drawing irrigation water from the Sacremento and San Joaquin rivers due to the presence of a 3″ fish-the delta smelt,and preventing close to a million people from drawing residential DRINKING WATER from an existing reservoir on the Santa Ana river,due to the presence of another 3″ fish-the Santa Ana sucker.

Just Google environmental groups sue USFWS and you’ll see how these people are imposing their will on the rest of us,only animals matter-not humans.

Look at all the lawsuits filed by The Center for Biological Diversity

The same Center for Biological Diversity that sued the EPA in an attempt to ban ALL lead ammo.

This is accomplished by abusing the endangered species act,filing anendless stream of lawsuits to force the USFWS to declare a fish,snail,frog,toad,lizard or bird as an endangered species.

These are the people who spiked trees,maiming loggers for life,chained themselves to trees to prevent legal logging from starting,these are the people who have destroyed millions of dollars worth of logging and mining equipment.

Yet they claim the peaceful protesters at the Malheur wildlife refuge are “terrorists”.

They mock Carol Bundy’s request for supplies to be donated to those peacefully protesting at the refuge.

“While these militants plead for public support in the form of mayonnaise and snacks, we want to offer people a way to reject their criminal actions and support positive work on public lands we all own.”

Any doubts that this…

Leftist website

Is an organized effort by the left to smear and mock those standing at Malheur?

The left is attempting to hijack the attention focused on Malheur for thier own purposes…

“In response to their farcical demands, the Conservation Lands Foundation, or CLF, just launched a counter-campaign on Crowdrise called “Service Not Seizure.” They want to divert the national attention on Oregon to a more positive cause: conservation.”

Said leftist idiots are making comments in opposition to those standing at Malheur

on my site in comments to my post that has Carol Bundy’s list of supplies here

 

 

They’re spamming me with multiple links  back to the leftist drivel HuffPo sponsored website.

It’s causing an increase in page views,but it’s pageviews from leftists,socialists,Marxists,enviro-nazis,and animal rights whackos.

Also lots of this bullshit on my Twitter feed.
