Bundys, Pete Santilli and other defendants oppose long trial delay in Bunkerville standoff

The majority of the 19 defendants charged in the 2014 Bunkerville standoff — including rancher Cliven Bundy and four of his sons — indicated Friday they want to exercise their constitutional rights and go to trial as soon as possible.

The move appeared to surprise prosecutors, who told a federal judge that they had previously obtained the support of most of the defendants for an eight-month trial delay until February.

Many of the defendants and their lawyers announced in court that they had changed their minds, prompting the lead prosecutor in the case, Steven Myhre, to suggest some were “playing games” with the “extremely serious charges” they are facing.

All 19 defendants, who are in federal custody, appeared together for the first time. They were dressed in jail garb and chains and, with their lawyers, filled up the courtroom, including the jury box. A dozen deputy U.S. marshals were on hand for extra security.

Myhre said the trial delay was needed to give prosecutors more time to turn over to the defendants the massive amount of evidence authorities have collected since the April 12, 2014, armed confrontation with law enforcement near Bunkerville.

Most of the defendants are facing conspiracy, extortion, firearms and assault charges that could land them in prison for the rest of their lives if convicted.

Defense lawyers argued they needed to see the government’s evidence to make an informed decision about giving up their clients’ constitutional speedy-trial rights. The defendants have a right to go to trial within 70 days of being charged.

The defense arguments prompted U.S. Magistrate Judge Peggy Leen to order prosecutors to turn over a large portion of the evidence within two weeks.

Leen promised a written decision later on whether to declare the case complex and delay the trial into next year. She issued an order in the meantime putting off the scheduled May 2 trial without setting a new date.

She also ordered defense lawyers to let her know by next Friday their position on the government’s proposed protective order barring the lawyers from giving copies of key trial evidence, including government investigative reports, to the public and media. Prosecutors contend the order is needed to protect the safety of witnesses.

But many of the defense lawyers believe the proposed order is too broad.

Dennis Michael Lynch: MY VISIT WITH AMMON BUNDY in JAIL

Screen Shot 2016-03-31 at 4.53.25 PM

Today, I spent an hour with Ammon Bundy.  To do such a thing required me to travel to Oregon.  It also meant I had to check in at a maximum security jail — a process I’ve never experienced before — and one I wasn’t prepared for despite trying otherwise.  Allow me to explain…

When I took on the immigration issue, I did it in a way most people do not.  Meaning, I lived it.

I’ve worked with the Border Patrol at night; I’ve spent weeks studying the smuggling routes in AZ; I’ve taken the long boat rides along the Rio Grande and looked into the eyes of cartel scouts.   I’ve scaled the fences and seen the tunnels; I’ve lived with the ranchers; I’ve visited homes occupied by the illegals; I’ve investigated the Canadian border.  By doing all this I believe I can articulate the problem better than anyone in America.

That said, I was on the front lines covering the “Nevada standoff” for Fox News in 2014 when the BLM went nose to nose with the Bundy family and hundreds of their supporters.  I used my footage to create a one-hour film called A DAY AT BUNDY’S, and in doing so I’ve become familiar with the Bundy family.   I understand how and why Ammon and his brothers felt they needed to travel to Oregon in December 2015 to defend the Hammond family.  But even so, in order for me to even remotely understand what Ammon Bundy is going through as an inmate, I had to understand what a prison cell truly feels like (but without getting myself arrested, of course).  And so I visited Alcatraz two days before visiting Ammon.

Aside from tuning in to watch the cop dramas on TV and films like Cool Hand Luke, I’ve never seen the inside of a prison or jail. I’ve never looked out from the inside of a cell.  I’ve never heard the sound of prison bars closing; I’ve never touched the cold cinder block walls: I’ve never smelled the inside of a prison hallway.

Although Alcatraz is an attraction, it still reeks of prison life.   It’s eerie to walk the hallways and sit in the cells. It’s depressing to look out a small window.   I didn’t need more than 20-minutes to realize prison is the worst place on earth.  Truth is, I didn’t last more than an hour touring the facility — this is one of those times when I don’t want to be an expert.

Ammon Bundy and I met today in a small cinder block prison room no bigger than a small bathroom found in a small cape-style home.  We sat on plastic chairs positioned across from each other at a plastic table.   We were allowed to shake hands when saying hello. When we grabbed hands he said, “When my wife comes to visit I am not permitted to touch her hand.”   Instantly, my heart felt heavy.

Ammon looked thin, clean shaven, and his hair was parted perfectly.  He was dressed in what looks like hospital scrubs, and although he was happy to see a fresh face (mine), there was a constant heaviness in his eyes.

I started by asking some basic questions, but it didn’t take more than 5-minutes for him to cry.  The emotions were brought on by me saying, “Hey, before we go on — I don’t want to forget — your wife sent me a text message today.  She wants me to tell you she loves you to pieces.”

While he spoke to me about his wife and kids, all I could do was think about how terrible I felt during the 20-minutes at Alcatraz.  “Ammon you must be dying inside?”  He responded, “They try to break you in here — they want you to quit.”

Unlike my Alcatraz tour that ended with a cup of coffee, a salted pretzel, and conversation with the boat master about who will be the better team this season, the San Francisco Giants or the New York Yankees, Ammon’s tour is very, very real.  No quick stop at Alcatraz can measure up to what Ammon lives today.

My interview with Ammon Bundy is as powerful and sad as it is maddening and confusing.  I use the word confusing because if found guilty on all charges, Ammon will face up to 100 years in prison.  It makes no sense to me.

I also interviewed Ryan Bundy today.  He is in the same facility–  but he is never permitted to see Ammon.

My interviews with Ammon and Ryan Bundy will be available next week on UNFILTERED.  If you want to be alerted as to when each interview will air, send me an email at TheyComeToAmerica@gmail.com

We will send you an email with the time and day when the schedule is set.

Harry Reid Is Coming After Bundy Ranch Again

Harry Reid "The JOKER"

Harry Reid “The JOKER”

“Now that Bundys are in jail, I’m going to reach out to the White House.”
Nevada Senator Harry Reid spoke on the Senate floor Thursday about the need to “protect and preserve” Gold Butte in Nevada, referring to the region north-east of Las Vegas where Bundy led an infamous standoff with the government in 2014.  He claims the government is missing out on big money because the public does not have access to all the land.   Reid alleges that the Bundys are “abusing” the land, and showed a picture of a tree broken over to prove it, claiming the beautiful tree was chopped down, “brutalized by these criminals.”
“I’ve tried to protect Gold Butte for a long time. And the reason we haven’t been able to do anything to this point is that the Bundy boys and his pals. So that’s why I’m grateful for the Antiquities Act. Because of this legislation and because of the fact that the Bundys are in jail, I’m going to reach out to the White House. And there’s no guarantee we’ll get it done. We’ll see if President Obama will protect this area. He has the authority, as any president does, to stop this sort of destruction and stop it now.”In his remarks, Reid says, “The BLM is the final frontier for a primitive experience on our public lands. They represent the future of outdoor recreation.”      He refers to Cliven Bundy and his sons as “dangerous militants” causing “domestic terrorism” and says they are destroying the land that the public should have access to.

On Friday, Carol Bundy, Cliven’s wife, fired back in a Facebook video while critics of Reid alleged that he was plotting a “federal land grab” by the Bundy ranch.

Carol responded to Reid in her video, saying: “What you’re doing to my family and to the state of Nevada is absolutely horrible, and I for one am very angry today.  I am angry at Harry Reid for thinking that because my men are in jail, it’s OK to come now and take … the land that my family has farmed and ranched on for generations.”

Reid’s previous legislative efforts to create a 350,000-acre national conservation area at Gold Butte have failed, and conservative critics throughout the west have accused him of attempting to steal land from families who have long ranched in the area.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The federal judge overseeing Oregon’s wildlife refuge standoff case scheduled a September trial on Wednesday and reinforced her decision to send Ammon and Ryan Bundy to Nevada next week for a court appearance.

U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown made those decisions during a testy hearing in which she repeatedly admonished lawyers for making repetitive points and threatened to remove one of the defendants from the court.

The packed courtroom included 17 of the 26 defendants charged with taking over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for 41 days this winter in a protest over land policy. Lawyers for all the defendants were there as well, and their competing interests and schedules add to the complexity of the case the judge must oversee.

Brown scheduled jury selection to begin Sept. 7, despite objections from several attorneys who said that wasn’t enough time to prepare and wanted the trial pushed back to 2017. Other lawyers supported the late summer date.

The judge left open the possibility for an eventual delay, but she said the right to a speedy trial is paramount for now. There’s also the chance of two different trials, one for defendants who want to go early and one for those who want next year.

Also Wednesday, the judge upheld her decision to have the Bundy brothers and two other defendants flown to Las Vegas next week for a court appearance and then returned to Oregon within 10 days. The men face charges stemming from a 2014 standoff at Cliven Bundy’s ranch near Bunkerville, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

Defense lawyers have said it’s improper to make their clients defend two cases at once in different states. They have asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overrule Brown. The appellate court has yet to indicate when it will rule.

Defendant Jason Patrick nearly got tossed from the courtroom after the judge, who had been snapping at lawyers to stay on point, told him to stop talking. “I was just asking if there will be more violent outbursts by the judge,” Patrick replied.

Brown ordered courtroom personnel to remove Patrick, but ultimately let him stay.

Later, another defendant, Kenneth Medenbach, who’s acting as his own attorney, demanded that Brown prove she took an oath of office, an issue he has raised previously. Brown told him she publicly took the oath in November 1999.

“Why is there no record of it?” a supporter of the occupiers shouted from the gallery.

Brown said she wasn’t spending any more time on the issue.

A federal judge in Portland has prohibited U.S. Marshals from transferring Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy and Ryan Payne to Nevada

A federal judge in Portland has prohibited U.S. Marshals from transferring Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy and Ryan Payne to Nevada for court hearings related to an armed standoff against government agents in 2014.

The men have been jailed in Portland since January for their roles in a 41-day standoff with government authorities at an Oregon wildlife refuge. They wanted public lands relinquished to local control.

Payne’s attorney Lisa Hay sought the emergency order Wednesday, saying the men shouldn’t be transferred until the Oregon case is over. She said sending them to Nevada would violate their right to have a speedy trial and effective counsel in Oregon.

U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown granted the request. Her interim order also applies to at least two other Oregon defendants charged in the Nevada case.

Bundy backers planning demonstration at U.S. courthouse in Las Vegas

Bundy005Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s family and friends plan a demonstration at the federal courthouse in Las Vegas to coincide with his scheduled Thursday court date.

Wife Carol Bundy said Tuesday the picketing should show that backers are keeping up their fight against the federal government.

Carol Bundy tells The Associated Press her husband may hire a lawyer before his court appearance, but she’s not saying yet who that’ll be.

Cliven Bundy is accused of 16 charges stemming from an armed standoff with federal agents in April 2014 that stopped a roundup of cows from public land near his ranch in Bunkerville.

He was arrested Feb. 10 in Oregon as he arrived at Portland International Airport to visit two of his sons jailed during the occupation of a federal wildlife refuge.

 

Courts are new front line in Bundy’s battle with the government

The new indictment of defiant rancher Cliven Bundy and 18 followers, including four of his sons, has established a new front line in the courts in their ongoing battle with the government.

And defense lawyers think the high-profile case — which stems from the April 2014 armed standoff with law enforcement near the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville — will only be resolved by a trial, where key constitutional issues will play out.

“These people physically stood up to the government, and now they’re likely to stand up to the government again in court,” veteran defense lawyer Chris Rasmussen said Friday.

That means most, if not all, of the 19 defendants won’t be striking plea agreements to end their cases, Rasmussen said.

“They’ve been trying to make a statement about their actions, and I think they want to to put this in front of a jury and hope the jury agrees with them,” defense lawyer Craig Drummond added.

The Bundys consider themselves “political prisoners” and are mounting a nationwide campaign through their websites and social media to raise money for their defense and spread their anti-government message.

Bundy, his sons Ammon, Ryan, David and Melvyn and the other defendants were charged with a string of felonies in connection with the April 12, 2014, standoff. All have been arrested by FBI agents.

More defendants could be charged in an investigation that Nevada U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden said is not over. Hundreds of anti-government activists from across the country, many of them armed, participated in the nationally watched showdown.

Courtroom battles are on the horizon as the 19 defendants, including the elder Bundy, the man federal prosecutors allege led “massive armed assault” against the federal officers, prepare for their return to Las Vegas to face the criminal charges.

The confrontation aimed to force federal officials to abandon about 400 cattle they had rounded up under court orders, according to the indictment. The Bundy family had been illegally grazing cattle on federal public lands for more than 20 years.

During the height of the standoff, Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service rangers were outnumbered 4-to-1 by the Bundys and 270 supporters, and rangers were threatened by snipers perched high above them on bridges, the indictment alleges.

Bundy family members are alleged to have used “deceit and deception” to lure militia and other followers across the country to a call to arms against the federal officers.

Longtime criminal attorney Thomas Pitaro said he expects the defendants to raise what they believe are First Amendment and Second Amendment issues in their defense at trial.

“No matter wherever you stand, there are significant political connotations to this case that will push the boundaries of constitutional protections (free speech and the right to bear arms) that the courts will have to address,” Pitaro said.

The government already has revealed in court documents that much of its evidence against the defendants has come from their own words in cellphone conversations, Internet videos and social media.

Prosecutors have argued that there is no constitutional right that allows someone to use a weapon to prevent law enforcement officers from performing their duties.

And prosecutors have left little doubt they are taking the case seriously.

In announcing the new Las Vegas indictment Thursday, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said the Justice Department “will not tolerate the use of threats or force” against federal agents who are simply doing their jobs.

Four prosecutors from the Nevada U.S. attorney’s office, led by First Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre and Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas Dickinson, are handling the case.

“The government has to take this seriously. Otherwise we would have anarchy,” said former federal prosecutor Kathleen Bliss, who worked closely with Dickinson on organized crime cases. “It’s a sign of good leadership.”

The price tag for the complicated case is likely to be steep for the taxpayers. Public defenders and court-appointed lawyers will be provided to many of the defendants, and the government will be spending big bucks maintaining extra security and its mass of evidence.

“I think the government will have the highest level of security it can in this case,” Rasmussen said. “I think they’re preparing for the worst, like there could be trouble.”

At the same time, Rasmussen said, “these people have a genuine, good faith belief that the land around their ranch belongs to the citizens and not the federal government.”

Cliven Bundy indictment over 2014 Nevada standoff expanded to 19 defendants

Cal BundyA dozen people were arrested and face federal charges stemming from a 2014 armed standoff with authorities in Nevada over cattle grazing rights. The confrontation was led by rancher Cliven Bundy and his sons, who are already in federal custody.
On Thursday, 12 people from five states were arrested after a federal grand jury in Las Vegas expanded an indictment previously filed against Cliven Bundy. The indictment included Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy and four other men already in federal custody as of late January in connection with a nearly six-week occupation of a federal wildlife preserve in Oregon. Those four include Ryan Payne of Montana, Peter Santilli Jr. of Ohio, and Brian Cavalier and Blaine Cooper, both of Arizona, according to AP.The indictment named Cliven Bundy as the leader and beneficiary of the armed standoff with federal agents in April 2014 near his southern Nevada ranch. The indictment called Bundy’s sons, Ammon and Ryan, leaders and organizers of around 200 gunmen and other supporters. Cliven Bundy was arrested in Portland, Oregon, on February 10 while traveling to visit his sons.

The 19 defendants in the Nevada case are accused of leading an armed confrontation with US Bureau of Land Management agents, who were forced to halt an attempt to move cattle belonging to the elder Bundy out of federal lands. Bundy has long refused to pay federal fees in exchange for permission to let his cattle graze on public lands.

Charges in the nine-count indictment include conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States; threatening a federal law enforcement officer; obstruction of justice; attempting to impede or injure a federal law enforcement officer; and several firearms charges.

The indictment says the defendants recruited, trained and provided support for armed gunmen and others amid a dispute of more than $1 million in federal grazing fees that Bundy has not paid. Bundy’s outstanding federal grazing fees are reportedly more than all other ranchers combined.

These include crimes against the government, and a very clear statement is made by law enforcement that they are sending a message. These charges are seperate from the charges in Oregon. Source http://www.oregonlive.com/oregon-stan…

Are we close to an end to this standoff or is this only the beginning of a a civil war?

The occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge enters its 41st day, the situation is heating up and the standoff between the FBI and Militia members. Are we close to an end to this standoff or is this only the beginning of a a civil war?

There’s been a national call sent out by the Militias United Facebook:

 

Ammon Bundy called on elected officials from mostly Western states to voice support for free speech and civil disobedience and to visit their constituents in federal custody. At least one Nevada lawmaker — state Assemblywoman Michele Fiore — is answering the call.

Michele Fiore answers the call…

The jailed leader of the occupation of a wildlife refuge in Oregon has called on elected officials from mostly Western states to voice support for free speech and civil disobedience and to visit their constituents in federal custody.

 

At least one Nevada lawmaker — state Assemblywoman Michele Fiore — is answering the call.

 

“It is your duty to hold federal agencies at bay, protecting the people in your state,” occupation leader Ammon Bundy said according to the transcript of a telephone call he made Saturday from jail and released by one of his lawyers Monday.

He also urged elected representatives in Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, Washington state and Ohio to support the right to assemble.

ammon-bundy-ap-dlFiore, who is running for Rep. Joe Heck’s 3rd Congressional District seat, told Oregon Public Broadcasting that she is planning a trip to Portland and expects to be in the city Thursday night to protest the jailing of Ammon and his brother Ryan Bundy. The brothers are sons of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy, who is embroiled in a legal dispute with the Bureau of Land Management over more than two decades of unpaid federal grazing fees.

An Oregon TV station tweeted at Fiore asking if she was planning the trip to Portland, to which she replied “CONFIRMED” in all capital letters.

While at least one media outlet has reported Cliven Bundy would make the trek to Oregon sometime this week, the rancher told the Review-Journal that he has not yet made up his mind and has other obligations to consider before going.

“I’ve been invited to go with (Fiore). I haven’t committed myself at all,” he said when reached by phone Monday night.

Cliven Bundy said Fiore did not personally invite him, but rather a mutual third party was setting it up. He declined to identify the third party.

Fiore told the public broadcasting station that she and other Western state lawmakers will meet Cliven Bundy in Burns and in Portland and that she would also demand the release of Ryan Bundy, who is from Nevada.

Ammon Bundy’s attorney Mike Arnold said he read that Fiore was planning to make a trip out to Portland. “I look forward to meeting her,” Arnold said, adding he was unaware of any others.

“Ammon’s main goal is to educate and increase the dialogue through free speech,” Arnold said Monday night. “The government needs to realize that when you arrest a political protester, that doesn’t mean you can muzzle them. That’s not what America’s about.”

The two Bundy brothers and nine others were arrested in Oregon in late January, most of them during a confrontation with the FBI and state police on a roadside where a spokesman for the group, Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, was fatally shot. A 12th member of the group turned himself in to police in Arizona.

Two of those arrested have been released on condition that they wear electronic tracking devices while awaiting trial, leaving 10 of the former protesters, including the two Bundys, in custody.

Four armed anti-government protesters still at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge were indicted last week with the 12 others on charges of conspiring to impede federal officers during an armed standoff at the compound.

The takeover at Malheur started Jan. 2 when Bundy and followers seized buildings at the refuge in a protest against federal control over millions of acres of public land in the West.

A judge cited the continuing standoff as an obstacle to the release of at least some of those still in custody. They are to be arraigned on Feb. 24.

Tensions have flared in the town of Burns, 30 miles north of the refuge, with hundreds of demonstrators and residents angry about the occupation and its supporters.

Ammon Bundy has released statements previously, defending the takeover and urging the four holdouts to stand down.

Members of the Burns Paiute Tribe, native Americans whose land previously encompassed the preserve, have criticized Bundy and his group.

Call to Action From Ammon Bundy February 6, 2016.

Call to Action From Ammon Bundy

Ammon Bundy, February 6, 2016. This is a call to action for any elected representative in Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, the State of Washington, and Ohio. You have constituents in federal custody. Please visit and contact them to voice your support for free speech, the right to assemble, and civil disobedience. It is your duty to hold federal agencies at bay, protecting the people in your state.

And to those who disagree with my speech, or our civil disobedience, and may dislike our ideas regarding that the land belongs to the people: Please remember that you do not want free speech to be retaliated against by government officials. If you do not advocate for government to tolerate ideas that it hates, then the First Amendment and free speech mean nothing.

Arm yourself with ideas. Arm yourselves with education. Argue and disagree. Be free. Thank you.

Shocking New Secrets on the FBI-Sanctioned Assassination of LaVoy Finicum (Video)

Assassination of LaVoy Finicum

If you haven’t already heard the statement from Ammon Bundy, or read his written statement, both can be found at the post titled, From Jail: A Statement From Ammon Bundy to the Public Today, Feb 4 2016. What I found very curious about both, was how Bundy never once mentioned everyone at the refuge should go home the way the media is consistently reporting. What he DOES say in his very limited time, is that the FBI and the Sheriff should go home! If Bundy wanted everyone at the refuge to turn themselves in or surrender, then why didn’t he say it when he had the chance??? 

The fact that Bundy only tells law enforcement to go home, raises more SERIOUS suspicions about the BS narrative being pumped out by the FBI and the mainstream media. It draws even more attention to, and only further demands that there be an investigation into the government-sanctioned assassination of rancher LaVoy Finicum.

If the media (or Bundy’s lawyer for that matter) cannot even be truthful when it comes to something like what Ammon Bundy did, or did not ask the media to relay to the public, how are We the People supposed to believe a word the same government or media says about the assassination of rancher LaVoy Finicum? 

In a recent post, Blaine Cooper Said, ”Finicum Left His Firearms at Refuge the Day Police Killed Him” (Audio). Adding fuel to the fire that the FBI’s version of the story is BULLSH** is their story about Finicum reaching for a loaded semi-automatic 9mm in his pants, when everyone that knew Finicum know he didn’t own a 9mm semi-automatic. 

Finicum only carried a Colt revolver, and only used shoulder harnesses, something the FBI wouldn’t have known immediately in the aftermath of the assassination when they made their BULLSH**  statement. Then, let’s not forget the never ending effort by theFBI to Shut Down All Alternative Media Regarding the Oregon Standoff (Recorded Call)

If the FBI is being honest, what the hell are they so nervous about? On the other hand, the people remaining at the refuge have EVERY reason to be nervous. In the video below you’ll learn that the same Doctors who prepared for the death of LaVoy Finicum have returned to Burns Oregon in what most think is them gearing up for the eventual taking of the refuge. This is the exact same pattern as before —-

The Truth is viral Writes:

In this episode of The Truth Is Viral, the government-sanctioned assassination of rancher LaVoy Finicum is definitively exposed from all angles.

In addition to enhanced FBI video footage of Finicum’s murder throughout the show, TTiV will be exposing the criminal past of the FBI Special Agent in Charge of the standoff at Mahleur Wildlife Refuge, and the US Attorney for Oregon who had to resign because it was revealed that she was a sexual deviant, a stalker who obsessed on her underlings, the woman who was responsible for unjustly sending the Hammonds back to prison for a second time.

You will see BLM officials plot to defraud the United States Government while paying far below market value for properties they want to seize, so that people like Harry Reid and Hillary Clinton can profit by selling the mineral rights to the Chinese and Russians.

You will learn that it was corrupt local, state, and federal officials who created a climate of fear in Harney County, dressing up like militia and attempting to sow discord. There is a reason the Harney County Fire Chief Chris Briels resigned in disgust. There is a reason that three top officials in the Harney County School District resigned their positions as well. At the very least, the occupation of the Mahleur National Wildlife Refuge has exposed deep-seeded, incestuous, and nepotistic corruption at all levels of government that have awakened the locals and require further investigation.

We’ll also be hearing from Mark McConnell, whose interpretation of events has been picked up by the mainstream media as definitive.

However, through the eyewitness testimony of two of the occupants of the vehicle LaVoy Finicum was driving, you will learn how the government laid an ambush in a deliberate attempt to kill everyone in the vehicle.

One of these witnesses, Shawna Cox, states that she believes it was Johnnie-come-Lately Mark McConnell who set them up to be murdered, and also how her son-in-law was killed in a mysterious explosion in the garage where all of her weapons had been stored

And finally, TTiV Publisher Bobby Powell will address the charges that talk radio host Pete Santilli is a federal informant, responsible for the arrests of the protesters at the Mahleur Wildlife Refuge. Santilli’s live streams from the refuge provided a lot of evidence to the federal government that was used to indict the Bundys and others, and published reports have labeled him a “Douchebag Turncoat.”

The following is a letter and a recorded statement given today (2/4/16) from Ammon Bundy which was sent out via email by his mother Carol Bundy from the Bundy Ranch. At the conclusion of the letter is a link to contribute to Ammon Bundy’s legal defense fund, should you wish to lend a hand. 

Since Bundy’s arrest, we have heard from the media and even from Ammon Bundy’s lawyer, that Ammon has urged everyone at the refuge to return home. The recorded statement below, which was most likely recorded by Carol Bundy, isn’t as long as the letter from Ammon immediately after, but I would assume if Ammon really wanted everyone to give up and go home, he’d have had every opportunity in the world on the call recording below… but he doesn’t mention it.

Frankly, I get quite the opposite impression from him… so I cannot help but wonder if what we’ve heard is more of the FBI trying to silence the truth, as I have already documented. 

Listen for yourself, and make your own judgment. Immediately following I will be providing more information on the sanctioned government assassination of rancher LaVoy Finicum.

Dear Friends,

Hundreds of people were freely coming into the refuge to get education on their rights.  Many group presentations were given each day.  On Saturday, the 24th, ten ranchers from Oregon, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona nullified their grazing contracts with the BLM and U.S. Forest Service.  On Saturday, the 24th, grand jury administrators from Nebraska and Florida were forming a grand jury to review the abuses in the Hammond case.  Tuesday, the 27th, the day LaVoy was killed, we began releasing documents exposing criminal acts by the government.  The evening of the 27th, a meeting was scheduled with Grant County residents to give a presentation with those at the refuge.  To give their presentation to hundreds of people in the county, including the county Sheriff.

The FBI attacked those who were to give the presentation on the way to this peaceful meeting, leaving hundreds at the meeting with no speakers.  On Wednesday, the 28th, a follow up meeting was scheduled with Harney County residents with those at the refuge to finalize actions to claim back lands that were taken by the BLM, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and United States Forest Service.  This included plans to take action to begin logging again in Harney County and to restore the thriving economy once known to the Harney County residents.  On Thursday evening, the 29th, a meeting was scheduled with Malheur County residents with those at the refuge to give a presentation on the constitution as it pertained to federal limits to land ownership inside the states. This meeting was to occur in Ontario, Oregon.  Hundreds were expected to attend.  The sheriff’s Department also accepted the invitation and was scheduled to attend.

On Friday afternoon, the 30th, residents surrounding Jordan Valley, Oregon, had scheduled a seminar with those at the refuge to come out and inform them of how they can protect themselves from a national monument that is to be signed in by President Obama this year, 2016.  This monument is twice the size of Yellowstone, takes up a third of the county’s land mass, and will put over 250 ranchers out of business as they know it.  Ranchers from Malheur county were scheduled to nullify their contracts with the U.S. Forest Service.

In the following weeks, meetings were scheduled in Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and the State of Washington.  Multiple Skype meetings were also set up throughout the Western U.S.  All these meetings were to discuss how they would stand against the unconstitutional land control by the federal government.  Those at the refuge collected over 50 testimonies of ranchers who lost their family property to the U.S. Government in Harney and surrounding counties.  Hundreds of government documents were compiled by those at the refuge.  Many of the documents exposed abusive actions by federal government officials, Judge Grasty, Harney County Sheriff’s Department and direct abuses to the Hammond family.

Escalation of force from the FBI, OSP, and the Sheriff’s Department incrementally increased as the education from the refuge expanded.  Government officials knew that if they did not take forceful preemptive action to stop the expanding the influence of the refuge, many would begin to stand for land rights as protected by the United States Constitution.  Make no mistake about it: those that were educating at the refuge and are now suffering in jail at this time are political prisoners.

Those at the refuge never pointed a gun and never pulled a trigger to kill.  They chose to educate, giving others the freedom to choose.  The government promoted fear and forceful tactics to control and stop this education.  And ultimately, they used force by the barrel of the gun.

Please watch the video above.

Sincerely,

Ammon Bundy, 2/4/16

Oregon Primed To Set Off 2nd American Revolution

Make no mistake ! The corrupt & toxic atmosphere in OR is 100X more volatile than what we saw in Nevada prior to the Bundy Ranch stand off. With 200 FBI given orders to commit Waco 2.0 on behalf of criminal politicians expect this to get messy ! The FBI better come to it’s senses before it makes a grave mistake ! Video resources :

With the FBI Continuing to Attempt to Shut Down Alternative Media Discussing What is Happening in the Oregon Standoff, information is getting harder and harder to come by, but this is WELL worth it.

In the video below, I explain how the standoff in Burns, Oregon, appears to be going down the road of another Ruby Ridge or Waco style massacre as more gets revealed with each passing day. The biggest difference, is this time the stakes are much higher, and the feds opposition is much better armed and trained than at Ruby Ridge or Waco. Sadly, my assessment of the situation unfolding in Oregon in a post titled, The World is on Fire; Obama Declares U.S. Constitution Public Enemy #1 dated January 4th, is looking like it might be more accurate than I’d like. I’d much rather be wrong, and in a post titled, Oregon Victory – Judge and 2 US Marshals in Route to Restore Constitutional Rule of Law, thanks to the reporting of Michael Emery from AVNETNEWS in collaboration with TVOINEWS, for a time it appeared I might have been wrong. Now, as you’ll see below, that appears to be wishful thinking…

The First Martyr of the Patriot Movement in 2016, the 2nd American Revolution Has Officially Begun

Oregon Militia Standoff Lavoy Finicum Killed, Ammon Bundy Arrested By FBI

160106-oregon-standoff-rd-205a_3d736df4f3175258ad2c55363b686a51.nbcnews-ux-2880-1000

With the arrest of Ammond Bundy and 6 other protest leaders in Burns, Oregon the U.S. Federal Government has shown its true colors.  That it will kill and intimidate the citizenry whenever it serves their tyrannical purposes.

By killing LaVoy Finicum the government has just created the first martyr of this honorable and noble protest movement.  The whole dynamic will now change with the unnecessary spilling of a true patriot’s blood.  Good people like LaVoy Finicum do not involve themselves with matters like this unless they are completely convicted with the righteousness of the cause. For LaVoy what was truly at stake in Burns, Oregon was worth his very life.  He knew exactly what he was fighting for— “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” –- for him, his family, and his fellow Americans.

Unknown to most, one of the greatest forces behind this patriot movement in Oregon was LaVoy Finicum.   The FEDs knew this.  They also knew that his courage and intestinal fortitude was infectious.  And that he would infect many other lesser men and women with the courage of his convictions.  Don’t think that the Obama Administration wasn’t more afraid of LaVoy Finicum than all the other protesters put together.

_______________________________________________________________________

It is extremely important to understand that the U.S. Government just carried out a premeditated and pre-planned assassination of perhaps the most stalwart patriot in the State of Oregon.  This brutal murder was staged as a public execution as a warning to others not to get involved with the patriot movement.  They savagely killed a foster parent to troubled boys who presented no danger to any living being.  
_______________________________________________________________________

You want to see what kind of man LaVoy Finicum really was.  This is a man of real courage, of self-sacrifice, of resolve, of valor, of perseverance, and of true bravery.  This is the man who the U.S. Federal Government just took out in order to advance their oppressive and repressive, tyrannical and despotic New World Order Disorder.  The article posted below says it all about the irrepressible LaVoy Finicum.

May God Bless LaVoy Finicum and his beautiful family!  And may he rest in peace in the highest Heaven.

State of the Nation
January 27, 2016

UPDATE:

The following update indicates that LaVoy Finicum was shot by the FEDs with his hands high and up in the air.  As follows:

Breaking News: Eyewitness Account of Bundy Takedown and Murder of LaVoy Finicum

Audio testimony of Victoria Sharp, who was in the vehicle ambushed by the Feds, and who watched La Voy Finicum get shot with his hands in the air!

I received a call late last night from a trusted friend, Bill Kosloskey, who had just got off of the phone with his friend, Victoria Sharp. Bill was obviously moved as he spoke to me, as his friend Victoria Sharp was in the vehicle ambushed by the FBI last evening; an ambush that resulted in the arrest of Ammon Bundy, and the death of patriot, LaVoy Finicum.

For now, I will not add my personal commentary on this matter, but instead let the eyewitness testimony of someone who is probably grateful to still be living about now do the talking. Our prayers go out to the family of LaVoy Finicum who, as you will hear, was shot down like a dog with his hands in the air. After he fell, they pumped up to 6 more rounds into him for good measure.

To hear Victoria Sharp’s testimony, I have linked to my friend Bill’s YouTube channel below and have uploaded the interview to create a podcast which you can also listen to below.     See above video/audio.

Oregon Militia Standoff

The Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested online talk show host Peter Santilli of Cincinnati in Oregon Tuesday night on a felony charge of conspiracy to impede federal officers.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested online talk show host Peter Santilli of Cincinnati in Oregon Tuesday night on a felony charge of conspiracy to impede federal officers. Santilli was serving as a spokesman for anti-government militia who had taken over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon.

The FBI stated Santilli was arrested in Burns at about 9:30 p.m. Cincinnati time without incident.

Santilli’s arrest came several hours after FBI and Oregon State Police arrested five militia members – including militia group leader Ammon Bundy – on the same charge. A sixth unidentified member of the group was killed when shots were fired during the encounter with law enforcement, the FBI stated.

Santilli joined the group occupying the refuge in late December, 2015. In an interview with The Enquirer he characterized himself as an independent journalist also serving as spokesman and international media coordinator for the militia group.

In a shocking development, the FBI has brought in over 200 vehicles to Burns, Oregon. To those that know their history, it appears that Burns, Oregon will soon become the next Waco.  If I had family (i.e. women, children and the elderly), I would have them leave the Burns, Oregon area as there is ready to be a good old fashion military battleground.

Live Update (1) from Malheur Wildlife Refuge In Burns, Oregon Saturday – 1/16/16 – #OregonFront

Ammon Bundy was to meet with the FBI to discuss the present situation. The FBI was a no-show. Would the FBI rather have the Oregon situation turn out like Waco with a Godless result in which hundreds of Constitutional supporting Americans are murdered at the hands of their own government?

 

The Bundy forces are being incorrectly characterized as being anti-government. They are not! They are pro-constitution. The Bundy forces are in the community visiting ranches and correcting the abuses of the BLM and the EPA. It is the Obama administration that is anti-government. The Obama administration is anti-Constitution. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. Anyone who opposes the use of unconstitutional tactics against the American people is anti-government. The Obama administration is anti-constitution and as such are anti-government, legitimate government.

Fox and CNN are part of the movement to supplant the Constitution of the United States. Their daily reports which characterize Ammon Bundy, Pete Santilli and the rest of the Bundy camp as being gun-toting revolutionaries looking to shoot government agents is not only a blatant lie, representative of the worst of yellow journalism, but Fox and CNN are the propaganda arm of this administration’s desire to overturn the Bill of Rights while they impose their “Bill of Wrongs”.  In the lawless future that Fox and CNN promote, private property will go the way of the dinosaur.

We are watching history in the making. What happens in this Oregon stand-off is pivotal for property rights and the freedom to peaceable assemble in the future. By the way, both of these activities are protected under the Constitution. Please note that the FBI agents refused to accept a pocket version of Constitution from the Bundy group. The FBI knows what they are doing is wrong and they don’t want any reminders of their unconstitutional behavior. Hence, the FBI agents and their refusal to accept a pocket version of the Constitution. The refusal of these FBI “guards” to accept a pocket size version of the Constitution is the symbolic event of this whole ordeal.

If Ammon Bundy Loses, This Is Our Bleak Agenda 21 Future

CSS Offical-New-Logo2

 

 

Very impressive Chinese cities, but where are the people?Very impressive Chinese cities, but where are the people?

 

Remember when the lifeguard yelled, “everybody out of the pool” and we all scrambled. Today, the clarion call is “everybody out of the rural areas”,
If Ammon Bundy’s people lose, America will soon witness the following Agenda 21 nightmare.

As ISIS is rampaging across Syria, Ebola is still on the loose in Africa and the flames of civil discontent are spreading across the United States as the country stands at a crossroads. There are many in the media who believe that America sits on the precipice of martial law followed by World War III. All signs certainly point to these fears coming to fruition. A question that very few seem to ask is what will society be like after World War III and the ushering in of the New World Order?

The United States has a canary in the mine from which to predict its future and it has to do with how China is implementing the United Nations based Agenda 21 policies. Agenda 21 certainly is impacting our daily lives, however, the big changes will not felt until after the United States collapses or is conquered. If one wants to know what life will be like when that time comes, we can look across the Pacific to China.

China has long led the world in repressive and inhuman enforcement of its population with repressive one child policies, mandatory sterilization and forced abortions. We also know that China permits corporate slave labor (e.g. Walmart) within its boundaries by globalist corporations. China is also becoming a model for the implementation of Agenda 21 and this implementation phase is taking a new and dramatic twist through the creation of a series of “ghost cities” in which monolithic cities are built, but there are only a few to no residents occupying these cities. Dateline Australia estimates that as many as 10 of these cities are being built every year. We, in the United States, should watch this Agenda 21 canary in the mine because it represents our future.

Agenda 21, the United Nations and You

The United Nations Agenda 21 policies are in the early stages of nudging the planet into a “more equitable and just new world order”. Although Agenda 21′s influence is seemingly everywhere and completely noticed by those who are in tune to the present globalization trends, the dramatic and full influence will not be fully realized until the United States has collapsed economically. In other words, Agenda 21 is a blueprint for a post-Constitutional America. This leads to the inevitable question as to when the economic collapse of the United States will take place? There is no definitive answer to this question. However, when we consider that the United States has a 17 trillion dollar deficit, an estimated 240 trillion dollar unfunded set of liabilities (e.g.Medicare, Social Security) and the estimated derivatives debt, that the American taxpayer was forced to assume in the “bailouts”, is estimated to be between one quadrillion to 1.5 quadrillion dollars. These three numbers represent the chest pains; the fatal American economic heart attack could come any day.

The Ecocity Builders is a non-profit non-governmental organization, affiliated with the United Nations, which is a collaboration of international networks of associates that influence and actively participate in local city planning projects all across the US. Through training courses they promote the ecocity approach as the future of human civilization. This conferenced laid out the subjugation of the human race.

Ecocity is a major implementation arm of the United Nations Agenda 21 urbanization policies. Ecocity is a major implementation arm of the United Nations Agenda 21 urbanization policies.

Through coercive conferences like the International Ecocity Conference series is an international movement toward building locally and globally. The ecocity advocates have created UN sustainable cities in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Brazil, South Africa, Turkey, a dozen countries in Europe, Korea, Australia and the focus of this article, in China.

An ecocity is often characterized in terms with Agenda 21 precepts including:

  • Human settlements modeled after sustainable development that functions with natural ecosystems and living organisms
  • Reduce the inhabitants ecological impact on the environment
  • Restoration of ecosystems after the recolonization of humans into dense cities
  • Sustainable living under Agenda 21 supports regional, national and global economic systems

The recolonization of humans into dense cities is the focus for the remainder of this article.

Agenda 21 Comes to China In Stealth

Agenda 21 is being implemented in China at breakneck speed and the latest phase is coming in under stealth and deception.

The Chinese government is in the process of relocating 250,000 people per week from rural farmlands to densely populated urban areas into what has been dubbed as the Chinese ghost towns. Many of us have heard about these Chinese ghost cities. However, until this year we didn’t really know the true purpose of why these ghost cities were being built. However, the veil is being lifted and now it is becoming very obvious as to what the Chinese are up to.

In one of these ghost towns, the Chinese built a nearly deserted replica of Paris complete with its own Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysees. In the process, the Chinese even leveled a range of 700 mountains as even geography can’t stand in the way of another ghost city.

Adrian Brown filed a very telling report with the Australian division of Dateline in 2011 on the topic of ghost cities. The 15 minute report received almost no attention in the United States but it received a stunning three million views in Australia.

China Is Now an Urban Country

China’s urban population has passed the 50% mark, according to China’s Bureau of Statistics. America reached this milestone in 1920, almost a full century before the Chinese and our urbanization was fueled by the demand for cheap labor to fill the new factory jobs. The Communist Chinese regime touts urbanization as the engine behind China’s future economic development. The Chinese propagandists are telling the masses that they must accept relocation from rural to urban because it will fuel the Chinese economy of the future. And what the Chinese propagandists are telling the people is a lie and as with many things in politics, there is the reason and there is the real reason.

Chinese Propaganda

Although the Chinese government and a select few globalist corporations claim that the Chinese urban population migration is fueled by the need for workers, other Chinese experts tell a different story.

In a Nov. 23, 2011 report, the Beijing Times, one of the most liberal of the Chinese newspapers, quoted the deputy inspector at China’s National Land Bureau, Gan Zangchun, said that the government land acquisition has created “fake urbanization.” In other words, the Chinese urbanization, based upon economic reasons, is a fraud. Then why is there such an urgency on the part of the Chinese government to move its population to urban areas at such a rapid pace and with such inhumanity?

The Real Reasons

For the past few years, people in the West were baffled as to why the Chinese were building massive ghost cities that can house over 1 million people each and yet, these ghost cities were dormant until just recently. The Chinese have over 65 million micro-apartments (i.e. apartments which are under 500 square feet) which lie vacant in these ghost cities.

The urbanization of America took place in proportion to the number of factory jobs which were available well into the industrial period of our history. The American factory jobs enticed future workers to leave the farm and relocate to cities. However, China is taking a “build it and they will come” approach. In other words, the more naive among us are supposed to believe that if the people move into the cities, factory jobs will follow. Stalin tried it as did Pol Pot, and it did not work and what we are really looking at here is a cover story.

More Chinese Experts Debunk the State Propaganda

Chinese political refugee and Princeton University professor, Cheng Xiaonong, stated that in several Chinese locations, farmers are being forcibly relocated at gun point and forced to relocate to urban areas. Cheng said, “[Party chief] Bo Xilai has been promoting a policy of moving farmers into towns, building apartments and moving forcibly relocated farmers into these stack and pack apartments and treating this as urbanization.” Cheng said urbanization isn’t about calculating how many farmers are relocated into cities, but about farmers being able to move into the city and gaining some measure of sustainable employment and adequate living conditions. These relocated farmers, without the prospect of jobs, is a recipe for economic and social disaster. Soon, there will be tens of millions of Chinese totally dependent on government handouts to survive. This is the power that governments strive to obtain because it gives them total control. This Chinese scene is reminiscent of the Agenda 21 inspired movie, Hunger Games.

Cheng makes the same observations as many other Chinese experts as he added that “urbanization is generally accompanied by economic growth as was the case in the US. In other countries, urbanization happens naturally, but in mainland China, urbanization is the result of the Chinese regime forcefully pushing farmers off of their land.”

Since the Chinese are not industrialized to the point which would justify the mass movement of 1 million people per month into its ghost towns, any reasonable person would be asking the question, why?

Who Is Behind Chinese Urbanization?

The Chinese government has held many conferences in which they have received consultation from some very disturbing sources, known to most of us as the global elite.

paulsonWho could forget Hank Paulson, the former Secretary of the Treasury and the former CEO of Goldman Sachs? Paulson is championing the strategy of forced relocation. In relation to Paulson’s observation and encouragement of Chinese urbanization he states, “The country’s economy is heading in the right direction. This is more important than achieving short-term growth.” Paulson went on to say that the economic growth in China has made urbanization a necessary and proper development. Are you kidding me? We have heard from Chinese experts, both inside and outside the country, who claim that economics is not fueling urban growth. Chinese urban growth is being fueled by bayonets and bullets. Hank Paulson is such a gem. I’m sure you remember “Mr. too-big-to-fail”, Hank Paulson, when he told Congress that if we, the American taxpayer, did not bail out Wall Street, there would be an economic collapse and we would have martial law and the rest as they say, is history. Bailout after bailout has come and gone and the net effect is that the American economy is in a tailspin. One has to legitimately have to wonder why the Chinese are taking economic advice from him? That’s like taking advice from Dr. Kevorkian on how to preserve life.

Another key globalist, Dominic Barton, the global managing director of McKinsey & CO., and he too sounds like a Paulson clone, as he recently stated, “The good news is that there is an underlying force of growth and that’s urbanization. What we’re basically seeing is more than 250,000 people moving from rural areas to cities every week.”  

Maurice Strong and George Soros are also players in this mass migration movement. If job demand is not fueling urbanization, then what is?

Getting Down to the Truth

It would seem that key globalists are trying to disguise the real reasons on why the Chinese government is forcibly relocating one million farmers per month to their ghost cities. Ask yourself America, where have we seen the philosophical belief that rural areas should be uninhabited and the population should be herded into densely populated stack and pack cities?

Make no mistake about it, the Chinese with the backing of globalist corporations like Goldman Sachs, are engaged in full-blown Agenda 21 relocation of its civilian population from rural areas to the stack and pack of their mega-cities. From the outside looking in, it looks like a beta test. And there is sufficient evidence to suggest that the same is preparing to happen in the United States.

The Chinese Are Behind a Barrel and They Have Pointed That Barrel At Their People

Why would the Chinese be taking marching orders from Paulson, Strong, Soros and company? The answer is simple, the Chinese government hopes to survive the coming bond collapse in the US which could happen in mere days, weeks or months. The Chinese hold much of our debt in bonds. The Chinese have undoubtedly come to the full realization that their economy will massively implode when American bonds crash and the best way to control the people’s backlash is to herd them together in what has become dubbed as “stack and pack” Agenda 21 cities.

Analysis

By moving one million people per month to the ghost cities, the Chinese will find that subjugating their country will be much easier when a martial law crackdown is instituted as necessitated by the coming economic catastrophe. that is going to befall both China and the United States.

It is also not difficult to speculate that the Chinese have made an under the table deal with the global elite to be the beta test for Agenda 21 style population forced relocation in order to temporarily to stave off absolute financial ruin.

Many are probably wondering if there is anything going on inside the United States which parallels the forced relocation of the population to these “stack and pack” cities?” The short answer is, most definitely. The days are numbered for both American suburbs and rural areas.

Thanks to Mayor Bloomberg and the San Francisco City Council, the concept of transition towns, inner city developmental tax breaks for construction and much more, America is following suit with the Chinese style Agenda 21 policies on many fronts

Militia Leader Ammon Bundy Discusses an End to the Oregon Standoff

As the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon reaches its sixth day, Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward and Ammon Bundy, leader of the armed protestors, hold a surprise meeting in a remote wilderness area.

Ammon Bundy Rejects Sheriff’s Offer To End Oregon Standoff

They met at a neutral site, and a sheriff offered to escort the militiamen out of Oregon.

01/07/2016 06:47 pm ET | Updated 18 hours ago

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BURNS, Ore., Jan 7 (Reuters) – The leader of a group of armed protesters occupying the headquarters of a U.S. wildlife refuge in rural southeastern Oregon on Thursday rejected a sheriff’s offer of passage out of the state to end the standoff.

During a meeting at a neutral site, Harney County Sheriff David Ward offered to escort Ammon Bundy and his group of occupiers out of Oregon, but Bundy declined.

Bundy met the sheriff on a roadside after leaving the compound with other occupiers in two vehicles.

Following the brief meeting, Bundy told reporters that he would consider Ward’s position, but the sheriff had not addressed their grievances. “We always consider what people say,” Bundy said.

The takeover that began on Saturday at the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, about 30 miles (48 km) south of the small town of Burns, is the latest incident in the so-called Sagebrush Rebellion, a decades-old conflict over federal control of land and resources in the U.S. West.

The move followed a demonstration in support of two local ranchers, Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son Steven, who were returned to prison earlier this week for setting fires that spread to federal land.

A lawyer for Hammond family has said that the occupiers do not speak for the family.

Residents of the area in a series of public meetings over the past few days have expressed a mixture of sympathy for the Hammond family, suspicion of the federal government’s motives and frustration with the occupation.

The leaders of the occupiers are Ammon and his brother, Ryan Bundy. Their father, Cliven Bundy, along with a band of armed men, stared down federal agents trying to seize his livestock in Nevada in 2014. Many of the other occupiers also are from outside Oregon.

At least a dozen other armed men have been visible at the park headquarters, offices, a museum and outbuildings. They have come and gone freely from the park without interference from authorities, at times making trips into town.

The Bundys’ group said that on Wednesday night a group of three men entered the refuge unexpectedly and engaged in a brief confrontation with the occupiers. Reuters journalists present at the time saw men running with firearms and heard angry shouting, but no shots were fired.

The situation was more calm on Thursday when a series of area ranchers visited for chats with the Bundys, who discussed their beliefs that the federal government had overreached its authority, often pausing to read from the U.S. Constitution.

“Hopefully some of the ranching families and the community will come and support you guys,” rancher Royce Wilber told them. “That’s what I wanted to post on Facebook, ‘Quit bitching on your electronic devices and come down here and see these people because they are not how they are portrayed in the media.'”

The Bundys say they want the federal government to turn over its land holdings in the area to local authorities and that they will leave after they have accomplished their goal.

Federal law enforcement agents and local police have so far kept away from the occupied site, maintaining little visible presence outside the park in a bid to avoid the deadly violence that erupted during conflicts with militants in Idaho and Texas in the 1990s.

But local officials have repeatedly asked the occupiers to go home, saying that even residents who support their views object to the illegal seizure of federal property.

“In reality these men had alternative motives, to attempt to overthrow the county and federal government in hopes to spark a movement across the United States,” Harney County Sheriff David Ward said in a statement earlier this week.
