Some more federal abuses in Oregon
I’ve been listening for many hours to T.V. and radio “common taters” and should the protesters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters use the first amendment of free speech and non-violent demonstrations like Martin Luther King and his “civil rights” movement or should they use the Second Amendment and bring their guns? Polls support county, state and/or local control of Oregon’s Natural Resource land and not mentioned in all the news sources is that both the Bundy and Hammond ranches are possibly sitting on precious metals which the BLM desperately wants.
NEVER LET A SERIOUS CRISIS GO TO WASTE
Do you find it coincidental that President Obama has once again used the incident in Oregon to promote his unconstitutional anti-gun executive orders and with tears flowing down his face plans to hire hundreds more federal agents to catch the bad guys by unaccountable bureaucrats? Readers will recall President Obama’s chief of Staff, Rahm Emamuel, who made a habit of bullying legislators in the House gym showers, uttering the increasingly famous dictum in 2011: “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.” In other words, a wise leader should take advantage of any dire situation to promote his agenda.
In today’s hobgoblin along with a compromised established media to bend the truth, we are confronted with one fear after another “coincidence.” While there are many stories to be told, I suppose the San Bernardino is the last but another was the Sandy Hook school shooting. All this chatter is worthless because we no longer have a Constitutional form of government that was devised by our Founders so we could have checks and balances. That was all well and good providing the public school system taught civics so the people would remain informed of THEIR RIGHTS and avoid being “politically correct.”. However, civics is no longer emphasized making it easy for the Power Elite to dumb down people so they will just panic when disaster hits and the use of crises is an important technique the Power elite uses to accomplish its goals.
REPUBLICAN RICHARD NIXON REPLACES CONSTITUTION
Yes, our Constitutional Republic was replaced by REPUBLICAN Richard Nixon with his unconstitutional Executive Order 11647 in February 1987 with United Nations Regional Administrative government that turned our country into a democracy (a dictatorship) which allows the infiltration of unelected subversives into all the now unconstitutional governmental agencies created since then – the Bureau of Land Management being one of them that is strongly influenced and controlled by the left-wing New Age environmental Pollyannas, who worship the creation instead of the Creator, and are out to destroy Capitalism.
These Regional administrative traitors never accept defeat so they come back again and again as they’ve done with the Hammonds who have refused to sell their land to the BLM. Read the whole story here.
In Ruby Ridge, Idaho a sharp shooter killed Vicki Weaver as she held her baby in her arms. At the Branch Davidian in Waco, Texas, President Clinton and his Attorney General Janet Reno sent the military to burn down the facility where 86 humans, including 17 little children lived with an “unscanctioned” religious belief. Therefore, in order to avoid similar events in Oregon, Dwight Hammond, Jr. 73, and his son, Steven, 46, chose to turn themselves in for a second term in prison (double jeopardy) for mistakenly burning 127 BLM acres. And the Harney County sheriff told Bundy and his followers to peacefully return to their families in Utah. They refused even when Oregon’s governor asked them to leave. One of their stipulations was to have the Hammonds released from prison.
FORESTS BURN – NO ACCOUNTABILITY
Year after year out west where government controls nearly all the land, we watch our forests burn due to lack of proper management by the BLM without accountability but now the Hammonds go to prison for a second time being accused this time of being “terrorists” under the Federal Anti-Terrorism Death Penalty Act of 1996 – an act that carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum sentence of death. This is why well-spoken Ammon Bundy from Utah and his followers, some toting guns, came to Oregon to protest the usurpation of unelected government goons. The Hammonds today – who tomorrow?
UNSANCTIONED RELIGIOUS BELIEFS
Reno described a cultist as “one who has a strong belief in the Bible and the Second Coming of Christ who frequently attends Bible Studies and who has a high level of financial giving to a Christian cause, who home schools their children, has a strong belief in the Second Amendment, distrusts big government and accumulates survival food therefore justifying the assassination at the Branch Davidian.
CHRISTIANITY A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY
Obama sees Christians as a threat to National Security. At George Washington University in October 2015, Obama’s assistant attorney general for national security, John Carlin, revealed that the Department of Justice was creating a brand new position just to monitor them. The position, Domestic Terrorism Counsel, was created to combat the “real and present threat “ of domestic terrorism which they consider is the Family Research Council and the American Family Association according to false information fed to them by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Of course, shortly after Ruby Ridge and Waco, Tim McVeigh, who claimed no Christian affiliations, was alleged to have bombed the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on 4/19/1995 for which he was eventually put to death in June 2011. He was accused of committing the worst terrorist act on American soil until 9/11 but Clinton and Reno? In his 2007 book HOLIER THAN THOU by Alan Stang said President Clinton appointed career drunk Jan ‘the man’ Reno, who served as Attorney General between arrests for molesting teenage girls and it was Jan who incinerated those victims at Waco. “Guilty as sin, free as a bird. America is a great Country” said Bill Ayers after he and his gang of revolutionaries bombed a building killing a policeman. And what is a current happening in Oklahoma city? A Satanic black Mass.
THE QUESTION OF MORALITY
North Carolina passed a ban on gay marriage in 2012 but in Oregon, it’s full speed ahead. Martin Luther King’s “Civil Rights” movement for lawful demonstrations has been hijacked by the most rebellious, immoral and depraved segment of our society. The acceptance of homosexuality and the elevation of that aberration to normality began in the 1960s by using the mass media as a cunning strategy, especially entertainment and other establishment-controlled institutions to re-educate the public in favor of sodomy.
CHRISTIANS CAUGHT IN THE WEB
Today bumptious public sector workers persecute and harasses innocent people like in the I.R.S. but then we have the State of Oregon where Marion County Judge Vance Day and business owner, Melissa Klein become victims of “intolerance.” A few years ago it was OK for businesses to post a sign that read, “No shirts, no shoes, no service,” and in July 1996 the Oregonian newspaper refused to publish an announcement of two lesbians who wanted to marry but Mellissa and Aaron Klein from Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Oregon recently paid a $135,000 fine plus interest to the Oregon Bureau of Labor for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple two years earlier claiming it violated their Christian faith. Melissa had been more than happy to sell Laurel & Rachel Bowman-Cryer bakery goods but she apparently was unaware of a new law passed in 2007 that was created to protect the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and the transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations again hijacking MLK Civil Rights that was to protect people of color. The lesbian couple claimed “emotional suffering” because of her refusal to bake the wedding cake so the Bureau of Labor became their advocate and did their dirty work – raising money for homosexual causes. But supporters of Melissa raised a half million with the balance now in a trust fund.
OREGON JUDGE WON’T MARRY GAYS
In the case against Oregon Circuit Court Judge Vance Day, he was having to defend himself against charges that he violated State Code of Judicial Conduct that ranged from insignificant to trivial. Among the things that the Judicial Fitness Commission considered violations of state ethics rules included handing his business card to a soccer referee who had asked for it; hanging displays of memorabilia honoring the service of American military veterans on the walls outside his office; and even hanging pictures of former presidents of the United States; however, the most significant was his decision to excuse himself from performing marriages after U.S. District Judge Michael McShane’s 2014 ruling that effectively legalized gay marriage in Oregon. Presiding at weddings is something that state court judges are permitted to do, but it is not required, and it is not part of a judge’s core responsibilities. Perhaps another reason for all these alleged “violations” was because Day was a former chair of the Oregon GOP in this one-party progressive, socialist Democrat state. All this costs money so Day had to open a Defense Fund. The current status is unknown at this writing.
This 2007 legislation passed with the blessing of Democrat John Kitzhaber, a Democrat Senate president and the speaker of the House, Democrat Jeff Merkley, now in Congress. And after Oregon’s former governor John Kitzaber resigned in January 2014, Oregon now has a self-proclaimed transgender Kate Brown as governor. It’s been a year and Kitzhabewr and his live-in girlfriend First Lady Cylvia are “guilty as hell but free as a bird. Isn’t America a great place if you are a Democrat?”
SAGEBRUSH REBELLION AND A PRAYER FOR THE HAMMONDS
What is going on in Eastern Oregon is not new. The July 1983 READER’S DIGEST wrote that during a campaign stop in Salt Lake City, Ronald Reagan made a fateful commitment to a group of Western ranchers. “I am one who supports the sagebrush rebellion,” he declared, “Count me in as a rebel.” In a bizarre sequence of events that commitment allied President Reagan with extremist groups of anti-environmentalists, that led directly to his troubles with the unconstitutional Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
President Reagan called upon James Watt to serve as Secretary of Interior causing disarray in the environmental movement. I had a bumper sticker on my car which said, “I know Watts right” and while driving through liberal college-town Eugene, Oregon a car tried to run me off the road. Watt was doing a tremendous job of reigning in the “greenies” so they began to discuss strategies among themselves in an all-out publicity campaign to remove Watt from office and it got really ugly. Jim Watt quoted Psalm 62 when he was going through his persecution in 1982-83. “I stand silently before the Lord, waiting for Him to rescue me…” A good prayer for the Hammonds.
ONCE AGAIN MEDIA CAUSES DIVISIONS
In a later 3/22/1984 article in our Salem, Oregon statesman Journal Watt said he had “the finest record ever put together by any administration.” He repeatedly blamed the national media for most of his problems during his three years in President Reagan’s cabinet. “ I’ve not been in trouble because of what I’ve said but because of what people attributed to me,” he said.
The Sagebrush Rebellion was led by Western cattle and sheep men who grazed their herds on Texas-size domain of arid, government-owned rangeland run by the Interior Department, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that claimed over the years the pounding of too many hoofs, its pastures had been turned into dust bowls during dry months and a sea of mud when it rained. In the 1970s conservation groups won a series of court orders and Congressional battles designed to force BLM to crack down on overgrazing. The Sagebrush Rebellion was the ranchers’ response: A counter attack to break BLM once and for all by getting Congress to turn its vast domain over to the states, which of course, never happened as set forth in the recent uprising in Harney County.
I also have seen first -hand government abuses. I was born and raised in wheat country in Eastern Washington. A number of years ago another one of those unconstitutional governmental agencies told the wheat farmers, who grow our food, they were to plow under a certain amount of acreage and plant sagebrush!!!As a small child, I can remember people clearing the land of sagebrush so they could plant crops. Go figure…Yes, indeed, the world is full of government sycophants with millionaire retirements who cannot tell their children they’ve done an honest day of work.
