Bundy brothers among 8 arrested, 1 dead near Malheur

BURNS, Ore. (KOIN) — One person died and 8 were arrested — including militia leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy — after the FBI and the Oregon State Police intercepted the group along Highway 395.

The militants were heading to a community meeting in John Day when they were confronted by authorities.

Shots were fired after FBI agents, Oregon State Police and other authorities made the stop. It is unclear who opened fire first.

In a statement, the FBI said one person who was “a subject of a federal probable cause arrest” was killed. That person killed was later identified as Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum, the de facto spokesman for the militia, CNN confirmed.

Ryan Bundy was also read more

[2VIDEOS] “Who is the Plaintiff? @Megynkelly ” – #AmmonBundy #OregonStandOff #10A

 

 

 

“Who is the plaintiff?” Mr. Ammon Bundy asked more than once with zero response by Megyn Kelly host of Kellyfile.

megyn.kelly.deerinheadlights

Mr. Bundy went on air to defend himself and fellow supporters decision to camp out on Oregon Federal land defensively armed in order to bring light to the injustice brought upon the Hammond ranchers by being sentenced, not once, but twice for the same alleged crime of setting a controlled fire to brush on the public federal land they have rightfully shared and maintained for years as it is the grazing land for their cattle.

megyn.kelly.quoting.bundy

What is not stated on this video is the backstory that the federal government itself set fire to the same brush in July of last year destroying fences, electrical telephone poles, burning down neighboring barns and homes. Eighty (80) head of the Hammond’s (& neighbors) cattle were also killed some by being burned alive at the hands of federal employees setting the fires next to same cattle locked in their pens.

The Hammonds were simply trying to save their home, barn and property from the same fiery demise by setting the controlled fire. Were the Hammonds under a judges gag order? Why is the MSM only sharing one side of the story?

Well, we will share the truth. Here’s proof of arson by the Federal government destroying property cattle barns and homes placing lives in jeopardy. Hammonds were and are innocent defending own lives cattle and property:

 

 

Entire point by Ammon Bundy is that the Oregon ranchers have no regress since the plaintiff, the federal government, is also the judge, jury, sentencer and enforcer in this case.

Why is no one pointing out that sentencing the two Hammond men twice for same alleged crime is double jeopardy?

Well we will. ~ by M. Kat Orts & husband Pastor David A. Orts founders of USDefenseLeague.com “Pushing Back Tyranny With Truth”

Editorial by Pastor David Orts

The lies of the Ruby Ridge Geraldo Rivera helicopter incident where an innocent Mom and baby was murdered is proof that Alinsky is alive and well and the enemy of freedom and justice lives within the gates of the USA.

Following an April 18, 1992 fly-over by a helicopter for the Geraldo Rivera “Now It Can Be Told” TV show, U.S. Marshal Service HQ received media reports that Weaver had fired on the helicopter. That day in Idaho, a U.S. Marshals team was installing surveillance cameras overlooking the Weaver property at the time of the fly-over. The field report for April 18, 1992 filed by Marshal W. Warren Mays reported seeing a helicopter near the Weaver property, but not hearing any shots fired.

Weaver then granted an interview with a newspaper reporter in which he, family and friends present denied firing on the helicopter. The helicopter pilot Richard Weiss eventually gave FBI FD-302 interviews denying that Weaver fired on his helicopter.

The media reports that Weaver had fired on the Rivera helicopter became part of the justification later cited by USMS Wayne “Duke” Smith and FBI HRT Commander Richard Rogers in drawing up the Ruby Ridge Rules of Engagement on August 21–22, 1992. Also, in spite of Richard Weiss’s repeated denials that shots had been fired at his helicopter, U.S. Attorney Ron Howen would charge that, as Overt Act 32 of the Weaver’s Conspiracy Against the Federal Government, Randy, Vicki and Harris fired two shots at the Rivera helicopter.

Where is the redress of grievance available when the media and government are lying to the people?

Will New Laws Marshall in Martial Law #MakeAmericaSafeAgain

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Laws taking effect at the start of the new year show states diverging on some hot-button issues.

Restrictions on carrying guns will ease in Texas, for example, but will get tighter in California. It will be easier to register to vote in Oregon, but there will be another step to take at the polls in North Carolina.

The opposing directions in the states reflect a nation with increasingly polarized politics.

In the debate over gun control, both sides say their arguments are strengthened by a string of mass shootings this year. That includes the December attack at a county health department gathering in San Bernardino, California, when a couple who investigators say pledged allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State group killed 14 people.

Everytown for Gun Safety, a group backed by billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is seeking to be a counterweight to the National Rifle Association’s lobbying of state lawmakers. Both groups are expected to be active in legislatures in the coming year.

Whether to raise the minimum wage has become another hot topic in states and cities, with the issue getting no traction in the Republican-led Congress.

New voting laws, meanwhile, could help shape the outcomes in state and federal elections in the coming year. Democrats and others who want to boost voter participation have been pushing to expand access to the polls, while conservatives have pushed for measures aimed at preventing election fraud. Each side says the other is using legislation to help their favored party in elections.

A look at some of the more notable laws taking effect in January:

GUNS
o-GUNS-facebook[1]Texas, the second-most populous state, is joining 44 other states in allowing at least some firearm owners to carry handguns openly in public places. Under the Texas law, guns can be carried by those with licenses and only in holsters.

Meanwhile, California, the most populous state, has multiple new laws on gun control. One tightens a ban on firearms in and around schools. Under the new law, the prohibition will apply even to most people who are allowed to carry concealed weapons generally. Another will allow people to request that a judge order weapons be taken away from relatives who are believed to pose a threat.

VOTING
vote-large[1]California and Oregon will become the first states that automatically register eligible voters when they obtain or renew their driver’s licenses. Critics of the measures — mostly Republicans — say that could lead to voter fraud and is part of a plan to register more voters who are likely to be Democrats. They say voters should register voluntarily. In both states, people will be able to opt out of being registered. read more

State Explores Flexing Legal Muscles on Immigration

Crafted carefully, state laws can be written that would allow Texas to crack down on undocumented immigrants and illegal border crossers without running afoul of the U.S. Constitution, a state attorney told lawmakers recently.

In at least one case, he said, it’s already happened.

Protesters block a rear entrance to Texas Governor Rick Perry's office on the second floor protesting HB12 the so-called "sanctuary cities" bill winding its way through the Senate on May 25, 2011.

Protesters block a rear entrance to Texas Governor Rick Perry’s office on the second floor protesting HB12 the so-called “sanctuary cities” bill winding its way through the Senate on May 25, 2011.


The guidance comes as Republican lawmakers continue accusing the Obama administration of failing to secure the border, citing the recent influx of undocumented immigrants from Central America into the Rio Grande Valley. The issue was thrust back into the spotlight on Tuesday when Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the Texas National Guard to stay in the Rio Grande Valley despite earlier plans to end its deployment this month.

During a House State Affairs committee hearing last week on border security and immigration, Texas Deputy Attorney General Brantley Starr told lawmakers they have more options than they might think to flex state legal muscle in the traditionally federal realm of immigration enforcement.

Although the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that “foreign policy and related matters, such as immigration, are one of the few enumerated powers the federal government has,” Starr said states do have some room to work.

“You do have the ability to create state-level offenses that have an immigration element to them as long as they are sufficiently unique,” he said, citing House Bill 11, the Legislature’s 2015 omnibus border security bill.

The bill, signed by Abbott in June, made it a state felony to smuggle someone into the country for pay. Starr said he believes the bill would stand up to a court challenge on Constitutional grounds if one were brought. (There is no current challenge, the attorney general’s office confirmed.)

“There were new state-level elements to that offense [in] that you’re taking money in exchange for bringing someone across the border illegally,” he said. “And the addition of the new state-level elements to that offense made it sufficiently unique.”

The new laws are already helping state police apprehend alleged criminals that federal agents might let go, Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw told the committee.

Border Patrol agents and state troopers recently came across a stash house for undocumented immigrants, for instance, where eight people, including two pregnant women, were being held against their will, McGraw said. Because the state had jurisdiction in its own right, state police could make the arrests.

“With Border Patrol and the U.S. Attorney’s office, it was too low under their threshold,” he said. “[The state] can go to the district attorney’s office and say, ‘Wait a minute,’ and the district attorney took that offense.”

Starr also said he believes state lawmakers can pass a bill outlawing “sanctuary cities” that would withstand a court challenge. The Supreme Court upheld one of four provisions of a controversial Arizona law, SB 1070, dubbed the “show me your papers” bill, allowing police to ask a person if they were in the country legally, Starr said.

But it didn’t take away the power of the federal government to deport the person, which is why it wasn’t struck down.

“That law survived because it could be implemented in a way that ultimately left discretion to the federal government to detain that person and remove them from the country,” he said.

Starr said that an essential element to a Texas “sanctuary cities” bill would be carving out an exception for school districts because the Supreme Court has already ruled that students cannot be questioned about their immigration status. The school exception was included in the state’s 2011 proposal that failed to make it to former Gov. Rick Perry’s desk.

Jacqueline Watson, the president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association’s Texas chapter, warned the committee the issue isn’t as simple as the state made it seem.

“This opinion does not foreclose other pre-emption and constitutional challenges to the law,” she said.

She said the Arizona bill shouldn’t be seen as a blueprint or viewed as a license for officers to stop a person solely on immigration matters.

“A state officer is required to make reasonable attempts to determine the immigration status of any person they stop, detain or arrest on some other legitimate basis if reasonable suspicion believes that the person is an alien and is unlawfully present in the United States,” she said.

FBI chief is wild card for Clinton

FBI Director James Comey is the pivotal figure in the 2016 presidential race that no one is talking about.

Comey, a Republican appointed by President Obama who enjoys a stellar reputation on both sides of the aisle, is investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of State.

Clinton is the overwhelming favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination next year and is expected to be a tough candidate for any Republican to face in 2016.
Yet the controversy surrounding her private email account remains an Achilles’ heel.

The GOP-created House Benghazi Committee flopped in October when Clinton testified for 11 hours. That hearing failed to produce anything newsworthy about her use of a private server and attracted criticism from liberals and read more

Iranian Hackers Attack State Dept. via Social Media Accounts


WASHINGTON — Four months after a historic accord with Tehran to limit its atomic ambitions, American officials and private security groups say they see a surge in sophisticated computer espionage by Iran, culminating in a series of cyberattacks against State Department officials over the past month.

The surge has led American officials to a stark conclusion: For Iran, cyberespionage — and the power it gives the Iranians to jab at the United States and its neighbors without provoking a military response — is becoming a tool to obtain the influence that many in Iran hoped the nuclear program would give the country. read more

Obama actions shield most illegals from deportation even as courts stall amnesty

 

Publisher’s warning: Liberal bias ahead. Commentary supplied as needed. –PBN

President Obama’s marquee deportation amnesty has been stalled by the courts, but the rest of his executive actions on immigration, announced exactly a year ago, are moving forward — including his move protecting more than 80 percent of illegal immigrants from any danger of deportation.

The amnesty, dubbed Deferred Action for Parental Accountability was supposed to grant full tentative legal status — including work permits, Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses — to more than 4 million illegal immigrants. It has been halted by a federal appeals court, and its fate will soon rest with the Supreme Court.

 But the rest of the dozen actions Mr. Obama announced on Nov. 20, 2014, are still advancing, including a far-reaching set of priorities that effectively orders agents not to bother deporting nearly all illegal immigrants.

Congressman now threatens to subpoena commerce secretary over global warming report

House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) opened another front in his war with federal climate researchers on Wednesday, saying a groundbreaking global warming study was “rushed to publication” over the objections of numerous scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

In a second letter in less than a week to Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, Smith urged her to pressure NOAA to comply with his subpoena for internal communications. Smith says whistleblowers have come forward with new information on the climate study’s path to publication in June. The study refuted claims that global warming had “paused” or slowed over the past decade, undercutting a popular argument used by those who refute the scientific consensus that man-made pollution is behind global warming.

The research, considered a bombshell in the climate change debate, set off alarms among skeptics. Smith, a prominent congressional skeptic, claimed that scientists manipulated data to advance President Obama’s agenda and timed the study’s release to coincide with the administration’s new limits on emissions from coal plants.

He is seeking NOAA’s internal communications and e-mails among its researchers, and in October subpoenaed Administrator Kathryn Sullivan for the documents. But she has refused to turn them over, saying that deliberative communications between scientists should be protected.

Obama & Clinton’s #Benghazi #USA #OPSEC Special Forces & Trey Gowdy Demand Accountability [2VIDS]

Publisher’s Update:
Before #Benghazi there was a letter from the, then alive, Libyan leader Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, to “Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama” aka POTUS Barack Obama. The letter was published by AP Apr 06, 2011 2:12 PM EST

POTUS Obama’s administration via then US Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, was allegedly arming AlQaeda in Benghazi, Libya via the “special diplomatic mission” as means for meetings. Were #Benghazi4 allegedly killed by stand down orders to eliminate witnesses? We think it’s sickeningly obvious. ~ USDefenseLeague.com

So what has changed since this video below was published? Very little. After today’s Special Committee on the events of Benghazi chaired by Representative Trey Gowdy, we allege Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama et al,  have only grown more callous towards the victims and the families who survived the preventable Islamist terrorist attack of #Benghazi Libya September 11, 2012 ~USDefenseLeague.com

Putin’s boost in battle against ISIS: China preparing to ‘team up with Russia in Syria’

Chinese army

Russia has carried out a series of deadly airstrikes against the terrorist group over the last few days and Vladimir Putin has now sent the country’s most elite special forces team into the war zone.

And speculation is heightening that offensive will be bolstered by the China’s People’s Liberation Army, following a number of reports of military movements in the region backed up by strong words from a senior government member at a United Nations meeting.

Reports emanating from the Middle East last week said China was planning on joining the fight against ISIS “in the coming weeks”, according to a Syrian army official.

While Beijing insists it will abide by the United Nations (UN) in the region, hints of an action were backed up when it spoke strongly about a coordinated response to the rising terrorist threat.

Speaking of the Syrian crisis China’s foreign minister Wang Yi said at the UN Security Council session in New York: “The world cannot afford to stand by and look on with folded arms, but must also not arbitrarily interfere.”

He added that nations should stand united against “violent extremist ideology”.

Mr Wang and his opposite number in Russia, Sergey Lavrov met at length last week and afterwards Mr Lavrov said the two countries are in “similar positions” on many domestic and international issues.

Chinese foreign minister Wang

China has also shown solidarity with Syria, joining Russia in vetoeing UN proposals against Bashar al-Assad, which are likely to prevent him being referred by the council to the International Criminal Court.

The latest actions at the UN conference have come amid reports, citing key military sources, Chinese warships have made their way to Syrian shores through the Suez Canal.

It was said China’s J-15 warplanes would launch from an aircraft carrier for attacks on ISIS.

Russian media followed that up by quoting Igor Morozov, a member of the Russian Federation Committee on International Affairs, confirming Chinese aircraft carrier, Lianoning, and a guided missile cruiser were heading to the area, and adding Chinese military advisers were already in the region.

Mr Morozov said: “It is known that China has joined our military operation in Syria.

“The Chinese cruiser has already entered the Mediterranean, followed by its aircraft carrier.”

These reports have not been verified by China and satellite images show the Syrian port of Tartus, currently empty.

However, China come under threat from ISIS in recent months increasing the theory an attack is in the pipeline.

Putin and Xi Jinping

 Lianoning

It began last year when ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi sent out a chilling threat to China over the perceived oppression of the Muslim Uighur minority in the state of Xinjiang.

Beijing claims members of the Uighur militant group, the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, have been training with extremists in Syria and Iraq.

China officials also say they face a severe threat of terror attacks in Xinjiang, where hundreds have died in clashes over the past three years.

China was further angered by ISIS insurgents releasing photos last month purporting to be of a Chinese citizen who had recently gone missing in the region.

They were demanding a ransom for his return.

ISIS has also spoken of its desire to increase its presence in China and last month a document from the group revealed the country is among a list of nations it wants to seize by 2020.

China has long maintained a policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of other states but, as well as the threat to its own country from ISIS, the situation in Syria is impacting on the Asian state’s economy.

That includes the China National Petroleum Corporation being forced to abandon its oilfields in Syria.

China also has oil fields in Iraq and would suffer heavily financially if these fell into the hands of ISIS.

Any interference in the region would pit China against USA and the Asian country would be keen to avoid a confrontation with its fellow superpower.

However, it would be a major boost to the Russian war strategy in Syria.
