Breaking: Over 150 armed right wing militia members have taken over a federal building in Oregon

A radical right wing extremist group of at least 150 militia members has taken control of a federal building in eastern Oregon Saturday night.

The group, led by three sons of the Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy who had a tense standoff with federal authorities in 2014, reportedly descended upon on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters in Hareny County, Oregon to protest the conviction of two local ranchers for arson of government building.

The group claimed “that the federal government had no authority in Harney County.” As the protest wore on, a splinter group broke off from the larger protest and seemed intent on “provoking a standoff with the federal government” by occupying the location.

In a phone interview with Oregonlive.com, Ammond Bundy, one of the three brothers, said they “would not rule out violence if law enforcement tries to remove them” and called the wildlife refuge building “the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds.” Bundy added that he was “planning on staying…for years.”

Here it is. Please know these men will speak to people civilly. Do not go up there guns blazing. Stay safe and smart.

In a message on Facebook Bundy said he planned on establishing the facility as a base for militia members across the nation According to reports, Ammond is rallying other right-wing militia members to join him in occupying the building. Even one member wrote an ominous message to his family on his Facebook page saying, “I want to die a free man,” Ritzheimer says.

    Nothing but a large group of attention whores. And all for the wrong reasons. “The government has no authority in this county” Hey Morons, the government has the authority towards the ENTIRE country, as where you idiots do not.

    So, protecting the environment and promoting mining, logging and digging for oil is more important?

    What a shame.

    No problem. Shut off power and water and supply lines and wait ’em out. Forget the guns – unless they start firing first. It gets boring being ignored under those circumstances.

    Why is this story calling them “militia members”? When peaceful people without guns protest, they are called “protestors.” Calling them “militia members” implies that there is a certain legitimacy there, and there isn’t. They are terrorist wannabes.

    Kind of an Oxymoron to say they are protecting the environment by promoting mining etc.

    Everyone of you need to research what is really going on here…it isnt about mining or logging. I’m not talking about the “militia’s”….that is the cover that the government is using to get everyone to look away from the real situation. A 70 year old man and his son were sent to prison for 3 months and one year..respectively…for setting 2 fires for what they said was controlled burning. One was to set a back fire to save their feed and home…the other to control invasive weed species….the government disputes this…but this isnt the point One was on federal land that they have grazing rights to..the other their own property…that was in responce to a fire on federal land that was started by lightning….and it burned 120 acres or so of federal land. But none of this is the issue…just some background. They served their sentences and were released….now the federal government says they didnt serve enough and they are to report tomarrow to serve 5 years less the time served….and the father is now 73. Now one might wonder why…but the BLM (Bureau of Land Management} has been wanting this ranch for quite sometime…..and as part of the sentence…they got the first right of refusal for the purchase of this land should the rancher decide to sell it. That in itself makes me very suspicious of the intent of the BLM.

    I disagree with calling this terrorism. There is a growing penchant in this Nation to call all manner of acts terrorism. This is not terrorism, it is a protest – armed or not (and no one has been injured). Since terrorism carries increased penalties, some law enforcement officials (whose difficult job I support) are only too happy to “throw the book” at offenders in their jurisdiction – in effect, manipulating laws against terrorists in ways that were not intended by the original lawmakers. This is one of those cases, whereas a judge increased their original sentence based on available terrorism sentencing rules. I predict that Obama will be unable to successfully use this incident in his attempt to further “his legacy” (although he will likely try), as American sentiments against Governmental Overreach and Regulation are at an all-time high. – PH

    It is terrorism. They took over an federal building while ARMED and are threatening to shoot and kill anyone who tries to stop them. That’s terrorism, the basic definition of terrorism.

    This is the truth of the matter, and so well written. Your input is very hard to ignore and I hope you are able to influence others as you have me. As the daughter of a 2nd generation farmer with mineral rights and a quarry in addition to our crops, I sympathize the Hammonds and think that this is exactly why we need the second ammenment, to protect our property in the even our government becomes corrupt. This family has worked decades in this land, and they appear to be wrongfully targeted and victimized and I think it’s tragic. This is the death of the American dream and a disgrace to the generations before mine that poured their heart and soul into all the traditions, values and rights that have guided so many up to this very day.

    These ranchers are a small group of isolated, poorly educated land owners who have ignored federal law. Their world is limited to acres of cattle and their property is largely surrounded by federal land. They do not own the federal land, it is owned by taxpayers. The law clearly states that they may use federal land that they do not own in exchange for fees and regulations that prevent overgrazing. They have chosen to ignore the law. They have profited without paying fees for years. Many of them are receiving large federal payments for drought conditions as subsidies in addition. They have a selfish sense of self-entitlement to the free use of federal land set aside by Roosevelt decades ago before any of them were born.

    The are criminals with no legal rights to use public lands for free.
