Oregon Miners Call For Peaceful Protest Against Federal Government After Enlisting Militia Groups

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Owners of a gold mining claim in southern Oregon who enlisted armed activists to guard the mine amid a land dispute with the federal government plan a peaceful protest this week but want to avoid a standoff.

  A co-owner of the Sugar Pine Mine, Rick Barclay, called in armed guards from the conservative Oath Keepers activist group after federal officials served him with a stop-work order last month for failing to comply with federal regulations.

  Federal officials said in a letter to the owners they needed to file plans for the gold mining and equipment on the land or cease operations. The miners argue they have exclusive surface rights and do not have to follow federal regulations.

  Mine spokesman Kerby Jackson said the miners were now calling for a “peaceful protest” at local Oregon Bureau of Land Management offices around Oregon on Thursday. Jackson said the owners were meeting with their attorney on Monday.

“ We are calling on all miners, loggers, farmers/ranchers and freedom lovers everywhere who are tired of government abuse to tell the BLM … that they are sick to death of the way that they have been conducting themselves,” the Sugar Pine Mine website said.”

Exclusive Interview: Oath Keepers Surrounded By 50 Police Told To Stop Defending Building In Ferguson From Fires

 

 

 

” Ben Swann traveled to Ferguson and sat down with Sam Andrews, the head of the Ferguson Oath Keeper operation about what the group is doing, how police have responded to them, and why 50 armed police officers surrounded a building where the Oath Keepers were protecting businesses and told them to either leave the buildings rooftop or they would be arrested. “

Ben Swann has the story

    Not content to let the police prevent them from exercising their Constitutional right to self-defense , business owners and the Oath Keepers have retained counsel who fired off a letter to the Chief of Police in St Louis . Below is a copy of the letter:

In Defense Of ‘Antigovernment Militias’

 

 

 

 

” Why do you “need” an AR-15? Well:

  When Sam Andrews awoke on Tuesday morning, he found his wife watching a television interview with a woman whose bakery had been vandalized during the violent unrest here on Monday.

“ She said, ‘You’ve got to go help her,’ ” Mr. Andrews said in an interview on Saturday morning.

  And so Mr. Andrews, a former Defense Department contractor who is now a weapons engineer in the St. Louis area, set to work. Under the auspices of a national group called the Oath Keepers, Mr. Andrews accelerated plans to recruit and organize private security details for businesses in Ferguson, which are receiving the services for free. The volunteers, who are sometimes described as a citizen militia — but do not call themselves that — have taken up armed positions on rooftops here on recent nights.

Did That Cop Just Say “We’re Here To Protect Your Rights, Not Violate Them”? Yes, Yes He Did!

 

 

 

 

 

” Activist and independent journalist Brett Sanders was conducting a First Amendment test in White Settlement, TX.

  He was filming outside of the Lockheed Martin facility when 3 officers pulled up to inquire as to what he was doing.

  What happened next was completely unpredictable. The officers from White Settlement police department weren’t belligerent or confrontational. They were actually cordial.

  Sanders refused to identify and they actually respected him for it! Instead of shoving his camera down or trying to confiscate it one officer sparks up a conversation about Sanders’ camera and equipment because he also enjoys photography.”

 

   

Credit where credit is due … we spend plenty of time highlighting the actions of horrible cops that have no respect for the Constitution and it is only fair to publicize the honorable actions of law enforcement officers when they come to our attention as well . Kudos to these three White Settlement officers .

Texas Border Ranchers Fear For Their Lives And Families – Ask Veterans For Help

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Texas border rancher vows to stand and fight the cartels, saying “There’s no backup in me” and calls on Texas veterans to join him in stopping the cartels from taking over Texas ranches along the border with Mexico.

  These bastards [cartel members] are going through the valley, alright?They’re sending people up to Houston, St. Louis, any town where they’ve got a population over ten people, and they’re going up North to your backyards, moving in next door to you, they’re gonna be your neighbors, and think about it, if you’re doing shift work, and you go to work at night, or you’re going to the bowling league, and your wife and kids, your grandkids, are at home, these self-same guys are gonna walk in on your family. What the hell are you gonna do about it? You gonna come home, outside of crying are you gonna do anything, are you gonna do something now, before it gets to that point? I’m doing my crying all the day. Everyday. That’s my message to them. They’re going to your backyard. You’ve got a chance to stop em. Do you stand back, or do you go forward? There’s no backup in me. I want somebody to join me. Don’t backup to these bastards. Don’t. We got too much to lose. Don’t lose as much as I have, please. [in reference to his relatives in Mexico, who were recently killed by the cartel].  – Texas Rancher “Rusty” Monsee

  Ranchers along the Texas side of the border with Mexico are in fear for their lives and the lives of their families, as they face a Mexican drug cartel takeover of their ranches and nearby ranches.    Below are two interviews with Texas ranchers who own land on the border.  Both describe how the American people are being lied to, and not told the truth about what is really happening on the border.”

 

 

Of course the drug cartel thugs are the least of our problems …

 

 

” In the interview Rusty describes Border Patrol intercepting Muslim men from Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and says “when they [Border Patrol] take them in, they’ll disappear – they’ll take them somewhere – and even the records will disappear. And I asked one of them ‘what’s the deal on the records’ and he said ‘that’s an order from way up the line, up in DC – they don’t want anybody to know how many are coming through’…they [the local Border Patrol agents] keep records but the records disappear, out of the mainframe – out of the computer – and the paper records too.”

  Rob, an out-of-state Oath Keepers member who has been serving as a volunteer guard on Rusty’s ranch for the past month, adds that:

  [they] had six middle eastern males on Rusty’s property [which Border Patrol was able to catch] … all I know is they were Muslim.   I wasn’t told a whole lot of information about it.   I do know they had told me they had caught eleven of the same group, the week prior to that, that had been on our United States terrorist wanted list [for acts against the United States] – not watch, but wanted list.  And this is the kind of stuff that they are not releasing to the public, they’re not allowed to release it.

When asked what happened to those men on the Terrorist Wanted List, Rob said:

  They were caught and they were turned over to Homeland Security, and everything pretty much disappeared like what Rusty was saying.  None of that is any public information or anything like that, so they don’t want it to be public.  [ the BP is not allowed to tell anyone that known terrorists are coming across the border].  They aren’t allowed to speak about it.  The only thing we [the American public] hear about is women and kids… and when they make huge drug busts, that’s what we hear about.  We don’t hear about the gang-bangers coming across, we don’t hear about the terrorists coming across.  We don’t hear about the violence going down on the border.  I had a rancher call me last week, and begging for help on 15,000 acres.  He had been moved off his ranch because he doesn’t feel safe with his family there.  He’s been shot at and threatened.  We don’t hear that [on the news]. “

Chief Of Police Harassed By Feds, Placed On Leave After Signing Pledge To Uphold Constitution

 

 

 

 

” A police chief was detained and harassed by federal agents while traveling to a constitutional convention before returning home to be told he was being placed on administrative leave and ordered to disband his police department after signing a pledge to uphold the bill of rights.

  Police Chief Shane Harger of the Jemez Springs, NM Police Department was flying out of Albuquerque Airport last week on his way to a Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) convention taking place in Las Vegas. CSPOA is an organization headed up by Sheriff Richard Mack under which law enforcement officers gather to re-affirm their commitment to uphold and defend the Constitution.

  Before passing security, Harger was approached by a TSA agent who asked the police chief to show his credentials. Moments later, a man claiming to be a “federal agent” also asked to see Harger’s credentials before telling him he was a “person of interest.” The federal agent then demanded to know where Harger was traveling to and why.”

… By Forming Special “Civilization Preservation” Teams

 

oathkeepers-banner

 

 

” Oath Keepers is instructing its 30,000 members nation-wide to form up special teams and sub-teams in each Oath Keepers chapter, at the town and county level, modeled loosely on the Special Forces “A Team” (Operational Detachment A ) model, and for a similar purpose: to be both a potential operational unit for community security and support during crisis, but also, as mission #1, to serve as training and leadership cadre, to assist in organizing neighborhood watches, organizing veterans halls to provide community civil defense, forming County Sheriff Posses, strengthening existing CERT, volunteer fire, search-and-rescue, reserve deputy systems, etc., and eventually to assist in forming and training town and county militias (established by official act of town and county elected representatives). We want our chapters to organize themselves as a working model that we can then take to other veterans organizations, such as the VFW, American Legion, Marine Corps League, etc. in each town and help them establish such teams within their already existing veterans halls. And likewise, to serve as a model and training cadre to help churches, neighborhood watches, and any other civic organization organize.”

New California Law Rejects NDAA Indefinite Detention

 

 

” As reported by Nick Hankoff at the California Tenth Amendment Center today, AB351, the California Liberty Preservation Act has been signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown:

Assembly Bill 351, commonly called the California Liberty Preservation Act, has been signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown making it statewide policy to refuse compliance with federal attempts to enforce “indefinite detention” made famous by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA). What began as a marginal issue with little legislative support has unified Californians of all persuasions and brought attention to the proper role the people and their states play in a constitutional republic.

AB351 now makes it state policy to reject “indefinite detention” powers from the federal government.   It reads, in part:

It is the policy of this state to refuse to provide material support for or to participate in any way with the implementation within this state of any federal law that purports to authorize indefinite detention of a person within California. [emphasis added]

This language of AB351 goes far beyond what has been considered in most other states, which focus solely on indefinite detention powers under the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and nothing else.  Donnelly’s legislation broadened the scope by recognizing that indefinite detention should not be complied with no matter what federal law is used to justify it.  Donnelly confirmed this broad scope, “AB351 will prevent California from implementing indefinite detention for any reason.”

This can make a HUGE dent in any federal effort to detain without due process in California.  As Judge Andrew Napolitano has said recently, such widespread noncompliance can make a federal law “nearly impossible to enforce” (video here). Quite simply, the federal government is going to have an extremely difficult time – at best – carrying out indefinite detention in California without the assistance of California.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oath Keepers Group Places Massive Pro-Snowden Ad Inside Pentagon Metro Station

 

oathkeepers snowden

 

 

 

 

 

” Last Thursday as I was rolling into the Pentagon Metro station I noticed from the train window a giant sign that read, “Snowden Honored His Oath. Honor Yours! Stop Big Brother!”

Turns out it was the Oath Keepers, “a coalition of current and former military, police, and other public officials [who] have pledged not to obey unconstitutional commands.” (For a fair and balanced take on the group,see Jesse Walker here.) The group released a statement claiming credit for the signs, of which there are supposedly three at Pentagon station:

Oath Keepers has placed three back-lit signs on the subway platform in the Washington Metro Pentagon Station, group founder Stewart Rhodes announced today.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chiefs of Police Completely Misrepresent Law Enforcement

 

 

 

 

” Let me quickly dispel any thoughts you may have that the average working cop is coming for your guns. You should not remotely consider that Police Chiefs (and I mean specifically Police Chiefs, not Sheriffs) speak for those whom they command. They most certainly do not! Police Chiefs are politically appointed administrators who, for fear of losing their cushy jobs, toe the line of the of the city officials who appointed them. Those people who work under the police chief have absolutely no say in the chief’s selection, and more often than not, the chief and those who work under him/her are often at odds over many things, including how to run the day to day operations of the department.

To lend a little credibility to my claim that line-level cops are supportive of gun rights, I offer a survey conducted by POLICE Magazine in which they concluded “More than 88 percent of a diverse population of American law enforcement officers who read POLICE Magazine gave a thumbs up to the Second Amendment of the Constitution.” That survey is not the only one conducted of cops which showed overwhelming support for citizen’s rights to guns. Noted gun rights supporter and author, John Lott documents several surveys with similar results here.”

 Here is a Glenn Beck interview of MSGT Grisham

 

” Army Master Sergeant Christopher J. Grisham was stopped and arrested March 16th while hiking with his son in Temple for carrying his semi- automatic gun.

He says, “I had my son record the arrest because it just became so egregious to me. It was wrong to begin with and I wanted people to see what was going on.”

Since the video has been up, it has gotten thousands of views and comments from supporters. “

 

Armed March Turns Into Massive Civil Disobedience Event

 

 

 

 

” What started out as a proposal for a few people to march into Washington D.C. with loaded rifles is now becoming a call for widespread civil disobedience and defiance of government authority.
 

Since the beginning of his activism, Kokesh has been very outspoken about his message and has not cowered in the face of government or any form of authority. In 2011, he was body-slammed and choked by by officers at the Jefferson Memorial when he and several others decided to have a “dance-off” in defiance of the no dancing regulations that has been put in place at the memorial. He has also been arrested in his underwear at a TSA airport checkpoint, worked with Mark Dice and Luke Rudkowski in confronting the Federal Reserve police, and participated in several “smoke down prohibition” events.

 

It was recently announced that Kokesh is organizing one of the most controversial acts he has attempted during his time as an activist. He is planning an Open Carry march in Washington, D.C. in which he and several other participants will be armed with loaded rifles and walk through the streets of Washington.”

   Brazenly Heisted Off Of The Blogfather’s Page … A Link-Filled Post About The Internecine Battle Between Oath-Keeping Milwaukee County Sheriff David A Clarke and Scandal-Plagued Bureaucratic Toady , Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn … An Epic Study In Contrasts

     Every now and then we come across a post(s) that , while we feel guilty doing so , we feel the need to share in it’s entirety just because it is something  masterful … funny how it more often than not comes from the Master himself , Glenn Reynolds as does this one . We beg your pardon Professor and hope that you will accept this theft of your wares in the spirit of sincere flattery that it was intended , not that we would actually expect a blogger of your stature to show himself in this dark , dank and dusty part of the blogger’s basement .

” A GUN CONTROL APOLOGY:

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. has fired another salvo in his ongoing clash with Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn over guns, law enforcement and public safety.

In a letter to a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, Clarke has issued an apology “on behalf of my constituents” for Flynn’s blunt Capitol Hill testimony last week in support of an assault-weapons ban.

The sheriff accuses Flynn of being “embarrassing” and “rude,” and hostile to gun rights in the letter, sent to South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, a member of the judiciary committee that heard Flynn’s testimony.

“Please do not see (Flynn’s) arrogance as exemplary of the people of Milwaukee County,” Clarke writes.

If I were the Milwaukee police chief, I’d be keeping my profile low. Too many scandals.

And remember that Chief Flynn is the one who instructed his officers to knock even legal gun-carriers to the ground, just because. Have you noticed that the more politicians support gun control, the more likely they are to be thuggish and corrupt? Which I guess explains Chicago. . . .

If you see Chief Flynn, you can ask him about that. Or you can ask him about his illegal body cavity searches. Or his crime-statistics book-cooking scandal.

Molon Labe! the Movie:  An Oath Keepers Nation-Wide Call To Action

by Elias Alias, Oath Keepers editor * February 25, 2013

We are going to talk about Molon Labe! the movie, but first, allow me to just say that I am chuckling up my sleeve in the wake of the Obama Administration’s all-out assault on the Constitution and its Second Amendment. Why? There are several reasons. For one thing, Obama has done more for gun sales than anyone in history.

OATH KEEPERS MOLON LABE PLEDGE

 

 

 

” We will never disarm.   We will never surrender our military pattern, semi-automatic rifles and the full capacity magazines, parts, and ammunition that go with them.  The fundamental purpose of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military power of We the People so we will have effective means to resist tyranny. Regardless of what unholy, unconstitutional filth issues from the mouths of oath breakers in “Mordor on the Potomac” our answer is MOLON LABE.

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force: Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”- Patrick Henry

We will not allow our children to be disarmed.  We will pass on those military pattern rifles, magazines, and ammunition to our children and our children’s children.

Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American… [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. – Tench Coxe, 1788 “

Sheriff David Clarke: I’m Going To Defend The Constitution ‘Tooth & Nail’

Glenn Beck Sheriffs

 

 

” Four sheriffs sat down with Glenn Beck, which he referred to as the “bravest sheriffs in all of America,” and they spoke about their stand against an ever growing Federal government and its threats of tyranny. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke confirmed what all of sheriffs were there to affirm and that is they would defend the Constitution “tooth and nail.”

Beck had Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, Grant County, Oregon Sheriff Glenn Palmer, Livingston County, Missouri Sheriff Steve Cox and Linn County, Oregon County Sheriff Tim Mueller as guests.”
