      According to Victoria’s account –

      After they shot LaVoy (with his hands in the air) they shot at the remaining three people in LaVoy’s truck (Ryan Bundy, 18yo Victoria, and the woman that was arrested) like they did the San Bernardino terrorists. They riddled the truck with bullets, I believe I heard her say they gassed them several times. She said they even had guys up in the trees, and when she finally got out of the truck, she must have had 20 lasers pointed at her.

    The only video/man that is supporting the FBI shooting is now out of jail, yet he was driving one of the cars. How come he is out and the others are still in. STRANGE??? They were going to a meeting with FBI, so why the crazy car stop?
    Thirdly why this group??–They were doing nothing to others, yet they are targeted!!! The Occupy Wall Street protesters camped out for months with the daily lives of many citizens in the areas of the camp outs being affected during that time. Then the trash and crap they left daily, since many were using the parks and streets for their trashcans and latrines. Then just look at what the black protesters did to Baltimore & Ferguson, even injuring LEOs and Firemen with rocks and other thrown objects.
    This whole thing smells to high heaven.
    Did police murder Oregon militiaman?
    January 27, 2016
    Those arrested included Ammon Bundy, 40; his brother Ryan Bundy, 43; Brian Cavalier, 44; Shawna Cox, 59; and Ryan Payne, 32, all during a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 395 Tuesday afternoon. Authorities said two others — Joseph Donald O’Shaughnessy, 45, and Peter Santilli, 50 — were arrested separately in Burns, while FBI agents in Arizona arrested another, Jon Eric Ritzheimer, 32.

    Each will face a federal felony charge of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation or threats, authorities said. Authorities released few other details.

    The militants, calling themselves Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, came to the frozen high desert of eastern Oregon to decry what they call onerous federal land restrictions and to object to the prison sentences of two local ranchers convicted of setting fires.

      According to the eye-witness testimony posted above, they were going to a meeting with the sheriff. The sheriff is NOT on the protestors’ side. So did the federal agents ask the sheriff to set up a meeting with the protestors, to lure them out on the streets? There was a roadblock set up farther up ahead from where they were stopped. How did they know where and when to set it up?

      kinthenorthwest, I agree – lots of monkey business in this. Even in the video, the released driver said it does indeed look bad that he wasn’t arrested. Interestingly, he also said what saved him was his lack of social media presence. Big topic, that one.

      Thinking about your third question, why this group and not others, points to asking why TPTB consider Bundy’s group more of a threat. Judging by the LE response, the astro-turf Occu-poopers were harmless in comparison. In Ferguson, destruction of private property in a minority neighborhood didn’t seem too concerning to elites, either.

      Inquiring minds want to know more about Payne and Ritzheimer – the former with a background in military intelligence and the latter famous for provoking the religion of peace in public media spectacles. Whole lotta shady going on.

    Hi all. Just got back from a wonderful vacation in the Maldives. Go if you ever get a chance
    When we boarded our Emirates flight in Dubai,after flying there from Male, Maldives we couldn’t help but notice that perhaps about the last 80 or so passengers coming on the plane were 3rd world black families,many carrying white plastic shopping looking bags that I think said ONI on them if I remember right. I know the “I” was immigration, but it was spelled a little different, the “O” was Organization Not sure what language it was in, but I could make sense of what it said. These were mainly families with very small children who spoke no English, just some tribal sounding dialect, perhaps Ethopian, unsure.
    Three such mothers sat directly across from us in the bassinet row, all three with babies none older than probably two. We flew into Chicago.
    We talked with an Australian male stewardess or whatever he would be called and these folks came up. He said every flight he is on to the US from Dubai has such families on it all the time. He said flights to America seem to have very few Caucasian travelers on them, this 777-300 flight we were on was no different.
    Upon arrival in Chicago and going through customs, I asked the customs officer about these ” immigrants” and he said ” they will soon be your neighbors somewhere”
    Anyhow, I was frankly shocked these people were flown over in such a large number on our flight and seemingly had zero going on positive to do our economy any good.
    Very sobering flight.

    This article gives a summary of the 18yo girl’s testimony (she was in the truck that LaVoy had been driving).

    It also talks about out the conflicting story from Mike McConnell –

    Reporter Les Zaitz from Oregon Live, a key source of mainstream media information from the Refuge protest, did not give prominence to Victoria Sharp’s account in his article, but instead chose to lead with and highlight the secondhand account of the other vehicle’s passenger Mark McConnell who claimed that unarmed victim Lavoy Finicum “charged at law enforcement” before being shot. Zaitz’s article even admits that McConnell’s vehicle was at least 200 yards behind the truck driven by Finicum.

    Incredibly, Oregonian Zaitz appears to favor McConnell’s account on the basis that his account has “matched accounts from law enforcement sources.” McConnell issued his version of events after being released law enforcement custody, where he spoke for 2 hours with law enforcement officers and agents…

    As it turns out, Mark McConnell did not actually see the shooting, and instead had ‘pieced together’ his account, as evidenced by his own statement later posted online…

    For screwing up, not intentionally stealing classified material from a secure server and givng it to HRC, for her convenience and paranoid need for secrecy.

    Roll that around on your tongue for a second. Because she was doing bad things and wanted to hide them, so she could run for President on her terms, she broke the law…A LOT!

    And she is STILL FREE, running for President.

    At some point, even those close to Obama have to be rolling their eyes and saying “Ahhh come on!!”

    Currently, the government under Obama is a lawless lot, sticking their fingers in the eyes of the vast majority of the people. If Obama doesn’t want to be remember as “that guy who destroyed the nation” he needs to let the DOJ take Hillary down. Like he said to her last year, she did it to herself. So, let the rest of the mountain fall on her and be done with it.

    At least Obama can point to that one moment and say “I did the right thing.” Obama wants to have something to fall back on. It is an ego thing for him. This may be it. Besides, if she gets in, and she doesn’t like him one bit….

    I mean seriously, weigh the options Barack.

      Many years’ back I spent an entire morning reading, initialing and signing a rather voluminous document in order to obtain a rather low level security clearance from the DOD. I still recall the statement on every page preceding my signature: “The penalty for violation of this article shall be death or such lesser penalty the [government] shall decree. ” . Gets your attention ! I have zero sympathy or forgiveness for Ms. Clinton’s actions !

        I know exactly what you mean. The rules, regulations and penalties for mishandling intel documents will make you suck up a little seat cushion for sure.

        But HRC is crazy paranoid. She went in, thinking her name – and husband- will protect her. I’m praying to God she’s wrong this time.

        But as they say on the Left, there is no god.

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your love and salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil. Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump as he seeks to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.

    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

    Treepers, are you aware of this nonsense? Unbelievable that this has been going on for TWO YEARS ! This Admiral cannot see Intelligence Reports and cannot even speak with others in Intelligence ! Stunning ! We need President Trump NOW !

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/checkpoint/wp/2016/01/27/the-admiral-in-charge-of-navy-intelligence-has-not-been-allowed-to-see-military-secrets-for-years/

    FTA: “For more than two years, the Navy’s intelligence chief has been stuck with a major handicap: He’s not allowed to know any secrets.

    Vice Adm. Ted “Twig” Branch has been barred from reading, seeing or hearing classified information since November 2013, when the Navy learned from the Justice Department that his name had surfaced in a giant corruption investigation involving a foreign defense contractor and scores of Navy personnel.”

    See link for much more info. WOW !
