For the last one hundred
and three years there has been an on-going war between what began as
the United States, versus U.S. Inc, the privately owned corporation
that is now in charge of the once constitutional republic.
this lop-sided battle, there is now no longer any recognized law,
still in use, to regulate this continuing take-down of whatever is
left of this once proud nation.

Ranchers from both Nevada and Oregon versus the Outlaw-government has

that end here's part of the following video
of which I've transcribed, so that people have the chance
glimpse the whole issue that's in dispute in Oregon now.
January 10 interview of Amon Bundy with Trent Luce
“I don't think it's any secret to anybody you've been here how
Well we've been here a full week almost.
“First of all I want to know is there anything that you would like
to say, or have to say to the citizens of Harney County, Oregon?
Well I think if I was to reach out to them; one is to let them know
that the reason why we came here is because we saw our neighbors
being abused: We saw them in a situation we could possibly help with.
And it becomes our duty, as neighbors to do that if we have the
ability and the power to do so.
I know that there's some concern around town: That you're out here.
People can't come here and check on their museum, and can't check on
their Wildlife Refuge. What have you destroyed since you arrived?
Nothing. In fact we've done a lot of cleanup. We've cleaned up some
of the buildings that were pretty poorly maintained. We've done some
improvements on the facility as well, and understand that this is
'the people's facility' and we're gonna take care of it.
In fact in an almost unrelated area, I heard you talking about
building some fence 'for some neighbors' I mean that's not
exactly the image people are getting of what is happening here.
Yeah, but that is why we're here, that's what we came for: To help
the ranchers get back to ranching, the loggers get back to logging,
to help the farmer get back to farming; and anybody else who needs
help and that's why we're here. That's what this is about.
You referenced that at the beginning, you just reference that again:
- Why Are You Here?
To help the people of Harney County.
One thing that concerns me, and I gotta a feel for it, once I came to
Burns, because people are met with daily, hourly news—talking about
the occupation—the armed occupation of the Wildlife Refuge.
folks in Burns would not know you were here, if it were not for the
federal police officers, the FBI, that have seized the school and are
in 'the citizens' of Burns Oregon. I don't understand why people
can't grasp that's really the source of turmoil?
Yeah, the really interesting thing that they say is going on here, is
happening in Downtown Burns and they've done it to scare the people
of Burns: To scare them from accepting and from being able to be part
of what's happening here. They've taken the downtown Burns, the
courthouse and the school and they've built a big fence around it and
they've boarded it off: And they're staging all their equipment and
all of their men there and who knows whatever else. Right in the
middle of downtown so they're completely occupying and terrorizing
the people of that town.
they are saying out here, that we're occupying and terrorizing and
yet we have no fences around us: People come and go. We've had
hundreds of people come and go in the last couple days: Community
members, we've had open conversations. The media comes and its a very
free, open place here. Yet I don't see many people going through
those doors there.
really has to wonder why the international media in particular has
not publicized the graphic differences inside these facts
“They have to understand that fear does not unify. What unifies is
a spirit of agency and the spirit of love. (3min m58sec)
(4min 51sec) ...and point blank your wife and six children are coming
here to this place that's “armed occupation” ?
Yeah (smiling) they're coming here and I'm not one bit afraid for
them because I've met some of the best people in this world, right
here, at this refuge.
Let's get to the issue that brought you to Oregon; because you ranch
in Nevada; you're a federal lands rancher, and I want to spend some
time talking about those rights that are being violated, but first:
The immediate need, and I've heard you say it since I arrived here
several times: Is there are two ranchers in federal prison today
unjustly so. (5min 32sec) ...
Two of the Story, RT: two minutes long
on 1-9-16: Since this was made, the PPN has since become a physical
buffer between the occupiers and the government.
the Pacific Patriot Network does not support or endorse this
occupation. And what has happened though, is that it has started a
dialogue and a discussion. And you have seen that frustration
exhibited with congressman Greg Waldon on the House floor for this
past month with a speech.
we traveled throughout the community and have spoken with the
community they are fearful of some of the federal overreach. If
you folks are out there interviewing people, and truly interviewing
everybody you'll find, many ranchers feel they want to have their say
in how their public lands are managed with local control and local
we're looking for is to start moderating a peaceful resolution to
stand down this operation. What we've noticed is both sides, from
within the refuge and within the local Harney County
government—they're not talking to each other. They're not opening
up a dialog, they're not opening up a communication.
have to get some articles of resolution. We've got to promote a
discussion and deescalate this peacefully and we've got to get it out
there and start. We're going to make a proposal to Amon Bundy, as we
feel our event was a little hijacked , with the support for the
Hammonds fortunately it's taken attention to the Hammonds a little
bit off. But things have come out of this and discussions happened.
need to get the two sides talking. We need to have the country
government present here. We need to have Amon Bundy present and we
need to start opening a dialogue. The other side of it is, as we have
seen with operations in the past and there are concerns, we don't
want to see a Waco situation to occur here at all.”
Oregon militiamen of PPN oppose occupation, call for peaceful
FROM BURNS OREGON AMMON BUNDY!
CORRUPTION GOES DEEP
Bundy here giving you an update on this Sabbath day, We had a good
day. We met with different individuals again from the community, we
went down to Phils and they had quite a few people, I was very
surprised at how many people were down there. I expressed to them
what we're doing here: What they can do and they were very receptive
from what I could tell. Also there were some ranchers from Malier
County that came over concerned about the monument they're making
there that's gonna affect anywhere from 350 to 400 ranchers. THE
MONUMENT IS TWICE THE SIZE OF YELLOWSTONE and it's basically to
destroy HUNDREDS OF RANCHERS.
they're trying to decide what to do and how to defend themselves
we gave them that understanding today and we have ranchers
that are planning on just standing on their Constitutional Rights
Saying No to this thing and going to ranching. They are
going to end their contracts with them and they are going to be
active in their role in exercising their right-to-the land.
also met with the committee of safety here and had great
discussions with them and in them acting in getting the records
and so forth, straight, so that these lands can be transferred
back to the people individually and we're excited for that.”
BURNS — In the latest bizarre turn of
events surrounding the ongoing armed occupation of a federal
wildlife refuge, an Oregon state legislator from outside
Harney County arrived here Saturday with out-of-state elected
officials in tow and met with the protesters.
Oregon Rep. Cliff Bentz, a Republican
from Ontario, and Harney County Judge Steven E. Grasty said
that they tried to warn state Rep. Dallas Heard against
traveling to Burns. But Heard, a Republican from Roseburg,
arrived anyway, they said, and brought officials elected to
state office in Washington, Idaho and Nevada with him.”
“We have a
great day tomorrow, We're planning on going down to the ranch
adjacent here to the Malheur Refuge where they cut off the
largest portion of their range: We're gonna go take that fence
down and get those rancher's back to where they're ranching on
we're having a family over here, where the Wildlife Refuge has
manipulated their ranch that will put them in duress, much like
the Hammonds. They (the Hammonds) spent 89 days in jail while
they stole all of their equipment and they stole all of their
livestock and basically ruined this family. We're gonna go give
them a hand and try and see how we can assist in getting them on
their feet. A lot of good things happening. The Hammonds, we had
an individual who has a video of the BLM starting that fire that
we spoke about in 2006, and we're hoping that will be enough
evidence, along with the other evidence that we've gathered over
the last several days to really start making a difference in
getting the Hammonds released.
do see it as an injustice for every hour they spend in prison.
And we hope that we can get the right assistance, and this new
evidence that we are still compiling will assist in getting them
out. We ask that you send your prayers this way that you pray for
the Hammonds, you pray for those that are working hard on the
Hammond Case and you pray for those who are working hard in
Harney County to get their rights back. And we're thankful for
you and your prayers towards us...
also would recognize that we know that if we continue going down the
road, that we continue going down, that it will ultimately create a
war among the people: And this is an effort right now among the people
to make sure that 'war' will never come. To make sure there is not a
war between government and the people.
if we do this correctly now we will make sure that there is peace that
will continue to rein in this country; that our children will be able
to have a future and be able to prosper... (5min 9sec)
