The media is spinning and twisting the narrative in Oregon and that's why it is up to the "alternative media" to correct the spin. Several things need to be addressed and I'll be doing some of that in this article, though much will have to be corrected in the days ahead. Among those things is the fact that there is absolutely no siege on a federal building in Oregon, Sheriff David Ward is not a constitutional sheriff and the militiamen gathered there are not armed, deranged lunatics.
Understand that the Hammonds, the ranchers the militia came to stand with, ended up turning themselves in around 1:37pm on Monday and were placed into a federal correctional facility in California. These men were really guilty of no crime and certainly not of any kind of terrorism, something a federal judge claimed they were. In my opinion, it is clearly an act of Double Jeopardy, something that is forbidden in the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution. Yet, not one person is holding the Bureau of Land Management responsible for the atrocious acts of deliberately setting fires that destroyed cattle, property and endangered the lives of ranchers. The following video is from this past summer.
And the media won't show you this, including conservative's precious Fox News!
Let's deal with a few of the issues.
The building at which the protesters have occupied is not like a federal building in a major city. In fact, it is open to the public. It is public property, though in a free country, it should be owned by someone, not government. So there is no occupation of a "federal building," but rather an area that is owned by the people.
The entire protest by the Bundys and the militia has been peaceful. No one is threatening any violence. That usually comes from the tyrants (ie. Waco, Ruby Ridge, Bundy Ranch siege). Even the reference of Ryan Bundy to being willing to kill and be killed was taken out of context by the media. That statement was with regard to the protesters and militia being fired upon by federal officials, the BLM or police.
Furthermore, head on over to liberal rags like the New York Times and see the lunacy of people who are full fledges statist communists as they demand that the protesters be killed, taken down and a variety of the two, but these same people didn't utter one word when there was real violence and disruption in Ferguson, Baltimore or their own city by a bunch of degenerates and race baiters who are just out to squeeze money from the pockets of their fellow citizens. Yes, I'm referring to the BlackLivesMatter nonsense.
However, here's the position of the Bundys, per a letter from Cliven Bundy:
With great concern and love and much consideration from prayer, I come to you Harney County Sheriff of Oregon David M. Ward, rancher Steven Dwight Hammond, and rancher Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr.
I, Cliven D. Bundy, have been involved for several weeks in the background striving to understand and comprehend your dilemmas in Harney County, Oregon. I understand that the grass that was burnt on each side of the fence was grazing rights that had been created through beneficial use, one side of the fence being private property and the other side of the fence being private property rights. The fires that were set were for a good purpose and had good results.
The United States Justice Department has NO jurisdiction or authority within the State of Oregon, County of Harney over this type of ranch management. These lands are not under U.S. treaties or commerce, they are not article 4 territories, and Congress does not have unlimited power. These lands have been admitted into statehood and are part of the great State of Oregon and the citizens of Harney County enjoy the fullness of the protections of the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Constitution limits United States government.
It is my suggestion, Steven Hammond, that you go and check yourself into Harney County jail asking for protective custody. It is my suggestion, Dwight Hammond, that you go and check yourself into Harney County jail asking for protective custody. It is my suggestion, Harney County Sheriff David Ward, accept these two ranchers into your jail, notify the United States Solicitor in Washington DC that you have these two ranchers in Harney County jail, that they will remain there indefinitely under your protective custody and the protection of We the People of Harney County and We the People of the United States of America.
I suggest an Evidentiary Hearing or a Grand Jury be formed by We the People.
I feel that this action is immediately important, that it should be taken place before 10:00 am Saturday, January 2, 2016. I will hold these suggestions private until that time then I will release this letter to those having state and county jurisdiction and to the media.

The issue is one of law. The issue is the Constitution. And these men have engaged in the very rights, protected under the First Amendment of assembly and addressing government for redress of grievances.
"These men came to Harney County claiming to be part of militia groups supporting local ranchers, when 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," Ward said in a statement Sunday.
Contrary to what Harney County Sheriff David M. Ward said, neither the Bundys nor the other patriots that protested or are occupying a public building on land which is unconstitutionally claimed as federal land, are trying to "overthrow the county or federal government." Since Sheriff Ward doesn't know the Constitution from the roll of toilet paper in his office, the fact of the matter is that the people are the government in America, which is why the Constitution begins with, "We the People," and the people are under the Law of God. Separate that out from the fact that the Constitution is for those the people elect to represent them. The Constitution is to be the boundaries of where those representatives have been given authority.
In fact, the Constitution is clear about what land the federal government may possess and for what purposes. Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the US Constitution states:
The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States...."
However, that power is limited immensely in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 about federal control of land.
To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of Particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings– (Emphasis added).
The fact of the matter is that not one acre of the Bundys, Hammonds or any other rancher in the US is to be owned or controlled by the federal government because it is not used for any of the things cited. The criminal terrorist in these matters are the agents and elected representatives and those appointed by them in the federal government. It is not any of those protesting, but rather a criminal oligarchy, and yes, they do have an agenda.
As for Sheriff David Ward, the people of his county should mark him as an anti-American, anti-Constitutional sheriff for his blatant cowardice for not protecting the Hammonds from a tyrannical federal judge, who had no authority to rule in the matter at all, since this was a state issue.
In a phone interview with a veteran friend of mine who attended the protest this weekend, he believes the men are doing what they believe to be the right thing. While he disagreed with the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Headquarters, he does understand why they are doing it and does not believe that anyone has any sort of violent inclinations, though he did tell me that he believes that there may be one or two FBI infiltrators that should be flushed out and exposed.
This entire fiasco is a result not of ranchers going jihad, but rather a long extended run of the people allowing their representatives to run roughshod over the Constitution and usurp power. It's time it ends, and sadly, it may get bloody to end it if the lapdogs like Sheriff Ward will not uphold the Constitution he swore and oath to rather than following orders like a good little Nazi.
Ammon Bundy is exposing the federal plan to destroy American families in the following video.
Here's some more important videos and links to keep you updated. Notice many of the locals are supportive in spite of a heavy influence of Rockefeller money in the area. Pete Santilli is on the ground and recording every interview and media press statement in order to keep the media "honest" about what they are reporting.
