Paying the Price of Freedom

By Jim Kirwan


'The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants'


In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” 'Mark Twain'

On January 26, 2016 Robert Lavoy Finicum was murdered in cold blood on his way to meet with the Grant County Constitutional Sheriff who had organized a meeting with the citizens of his county that were waiting for Lavoy and Aamon Bundy to arrive; to discuss an invitation from the people gathered there, to come to Grant County and work with their Constitutional Sheriff - to continue what had begun in Harney County, Oregon.

The idea that the movement led by Bundy and Finicum might succeed in two counties was 'unthinkable', for the Oregon Governor and the Feds she had personally called in to “end this problem”. The John Day Meeting was held on Tuesday night, in the town of the same name.

Inside the John Day meeting where Oregon Standoff leaders were headed before arrest.

When police stopped a group of vehicles containing Harney County occupation leader Ammon Bundy on Tuesday, the activist was two hours from John Day where he was scheduled to speak.

People turned up by the hundreds in the Grant County town of John Day to listen to Bundy and others talk about the protest at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in adjoining Harney County.

Some toted signs against the occupation. Far more turned up to express their solidarity with the Harney County protest.

Before the meeting's scheduled opening at 6 p.m., the standing-room-only crowd at the John Day Senior Center started buzzing with rumors. Something had gone wrong on Bundy's way to the meeting.

A crowd divided

Many people in Grant County are angry about what they feel is the government's mismanagement of the Malheur National Forest. They're angry about the raging forest fire this summer that destroyed more than 25 homes. They say if they were given more freedom to log and graze, the forest would be better managed.

That's the view of Jim Sproul, a 63-year-old John Day native who was one of the early arrivals at the senior center on Tuesday. At 4:30 p.m., he was inside setting up chairs.

Sproul's family settled in John Day at the turn of the century, becoming ranchers. Growing up, Sproul remembers a vibrant community, with several sawmills. But the federal government stepped in, he said, curtailing logging and grazing rights...

"These folks are not terrorists," Sproul said. "This is way bigger than the Bundys. It's bigger than the citizens of Grant and Harney counties. This is a national problem."

k- This was mentioned by Dwight Hammond when he told the crowd after he had been ordered to return to prison for the second time : “The Bundy's and the Militia men don't speak for them.“This isn't about me.” Dwight said: But it is about freedom for every one of us, and until we chain those rabid-dogs in the uniforms of government slave-masters, we will never be able to free ourselves from everyone that continues to try and control all our freedoms, on any side of this breathing nightmare.

By 5 p.m., about 100 people had turned up. An hour later, it was standing room only with about 300 inside and dozens more milling about outside carrying protest signs. Inside, some wore cowboy hats; others had baseball caps. If any carried guns, they weren't on display, said Jim Hammett, a 61-year-old retired U.S. Forest Service official who's lived in John Day for 20 years.

Hammett, who's rarely protested, carried a stick sign outside the meeting that said: "Might is not right." He doesn't want John Day to become divided like Burns, he said, with neighbor against neighbor.

"People in small communities get along in their day-to-day dealings with each other by knowing what opinions they can express," Hammett said...”

USA: Meeting reacts in shock to news of Oregon occupation shooting

What is clear is that Robert Lavoy Finicum paid with his life,

for the rest of us to continue this fight against this tyranny

that has taken over the United States.

In that light we heard from the PPN and Oathkeepers who have been silent while the cold-blooded attack upon this movement, through the trap that was set on that Oregon highway: That was a blood-sacrifice that should never have happened. It was intended to create a dramatic ending of any effort to resist anything that the lawless government is determined to create. This was designed to end the lives of anyone opposed to the peaceful Constitutional forces in Oregon and Nevada ­ that were determined to stop the theft-in-progress of the Hammond Ranch and all the other ranches, mines, and logging operations which could be stopped by this massively illegal land grab that will kill the freedoms of everyone still standing in the way of the government's plan to finish their implementation of Agenda 21/30 ­ by disarming all the people via the UN, after seizing all the land that actually belongs to the people of the United States.

I'm a street-fighter of many years of experience, and not a member of any organization: I'm sick of these imitation organizations that promise everything and to date have delivered absolutely nothing but more lip service ­ while they adopt the language of those they say they will fight to rid this society of tyranny: But where's the proof?

Oathkeepers ­ January 16

Read this “plan” above then ask yourself

Where were they & The Pacific Patriots Network

Ten days later on January 26, 2016

When they were needed?

It must be pointed out that there are just four people still inside the Refuge, waiting to be physically attacked or killed by the same assassins that murdered Finicum on the road just days ago. If these two 'organizations' don't show up in force and do what they're speaking of then those 'organizations' should be dissolved for their failure to perform, Lavoy did what he promised to do, he took bullets to save the lives of others in that convoy ­ so what have our self-declared “patriots” done lately for anyone but themselves?

Here's the real issue, not just in Oregon or the US, but in the entire world. Watch this brief video and see exactly how almost all of us are directly involved in the creation of being passive human-bondage, and we have been slaves to this, for centuries. It's time to break our chains and live our own lives because no people have ever needed to be “led” by any other force ­ we are those individuals who are responsible for living and creating our own lives and dreams, without interference from the obsessive lusts of the filthy rich, regardless of what they call themselves in the world of now...

The real news of today is that we have never needed rulers at all.
