On Tuesday, Tim Brown reported at Freedom Outpost that sources are now saying that military special operations forces are enroute to the Malheur Wildlife Reserve in Oregon, where rancher Ammon Bundy and a group of militia members are occupying a federal building. Moreover, he said, it appears that one of the men with the militia is possibly an agent provocateur.
In a video posted at Freedom Outpost, Infowars’ Joe Biggs said that federal agents are massing in nearby Burns and are preparing to serve five warrants. The Bundys, meanwhile, are preparing defensive positions.
Apparently, the men were expecting to resolve the issue peacefully, as I previously reported, but there was no doubt in my mind that the tyrannical feds were not going to try and work things out. The same scenario is about to play out that played out at the Bundy Ranch, but it may go further, much further… as in Waco.
OathKeepers founder and president Stuart Rhodes also released the following statement:
Oath Keepers has received very credible information from an active duty source within the special operations community that at least one SOD-X (Reserve/National Guard Special Operations Detachment, see this, this, and this) unit under the command of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has been tasked for this standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Reserve and moved to the area. Given this, we should expect that other special operations assets, such as Delta Force, will also be involved if the Obama Administration decides to give the green light on a military raid/strike. And we should expect the presence of the infamous FBI HRT (which were present at both Ruby Ridge and Waco).
Due to this, anyone who has children there, at the wildlife refuge, needs to get them out immediately, and DO NOT take any more children there for any reason (and we do know that some children, including a baby, have been seen there). We do not need to have the risk of dead children in this incident. It is unconscionable and immoral for anyone to place children at risk of being in the middle of a firefight or military raid/strike on the armed men holding that federal wildlife refuge. Now, of course, just because military special operations units have been sent to the area and are tasked with a possible action does not mean it will be done. It may not. But we DO NOT trust the Obama Administration to do this right, which would be to handle it like the Montana Freeman standoff rather than the Waco standoff, and anyone who thinks that Obama wouldn’t dare drop the hammer on Ammon and his men is a fool. We hope “the adults in the room” in the Administration and in the federal LEO and military community will keep that from happening, but hope is not an operational plan. We don’t trust them, and you shouldn’t either, so:
Get, and keep, children off the friggin X.
“Both Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne (who we suspect is an agent provocateur) told the locals in the Committee of Safety, at a public town hall meeting on December 15, that they, the locals on the committee, would be making the decisions on what was to be done, how, and when,” wrote Rhodes. “That was a lie, as they were already staging their men and supplies in the area to takeover the wildlife refuge, and had already planned out this takeover of the federal facility at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. By doing this, they have given Obama the best New Years present he could hope for – an example of militia movement/patriot aggression, which gives up the high ground while also having the least credibility and support from the locals possible, after lying to them, and also the least support from the patriot community, who were also blind-sided by Ammon and Ryan Payne.”
OathKeepers, Rhodes said, opposes the actions taken by Bundy in Oregon.
Whether or not his statement is credible remains to be seen, given the 2014 claim that Eric Holder was set to use a drone against the Bundy Ranch. Of course, that didn’t happen.
Unfortunately, stories like this come out all the time in incidents like this, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. There was a time when claims like this could be dismissed out of hand, but those days are long gone.
