Grumpy Opinions ^ | PUMABydesign001

Bundy Ranch Standoff: Meet the BLM thug who tackled a 57-year old woman. (See my post entitled, “Margaret Bundy Houston Tells Town Board of Being Tackled by BLM: Feds Take Cattle Watering System.”)

His name is Michael Roop. Roop is a State Staff Ranger for BLM, Oregon and to put it mildly, on the internet, this punk with a gun, badge, pepper spray and a K-9 is trending.

No not really. I was commenting on the ‘type’. Not the specific goon. Not extremely well known is that Horiuchi was ALSO present at Waco. He later became a consultant to some gun gear store in Idaho, Montana or some such. They had him on their web page bragging about how he was a sniper expert and all.....

I sent them an excoriating email asking them how they could employ a murderer like that and told them the very last place I would buy any gear from is them. It was not long after that, he was gone from the web page - I assume his gig was terminated, too.

And, the apparatchik needs to be branded on his forehead with a scarlet letter (an "O" is appropriate) so he's easy to spot when out in public without his militaristic zoot suit!

From a person that went there, drove there from L.A.

I rolled into Laughlin really early, like 5:30 am. So many people had shown up, that we decided to leave in groups. A second group to leave at 8Am as scheduled. Ours was a big group too. About two dozen cars, loaded with passengers.

The highway was almost empty until near Mesquite. Then it was a traffic jam. Motor homes, campers, ATVs running along side the freeway, motorcyles, vehicles, every thing you could possibly imagine. Everyone on their way to Bunkersville. Then it about stopped, just inching along. Word traveled down the traffic line that the feds had blocked the road just out of Mesquite and were searching vehicles for weapons and cell phones. Cell phones were confiscated and smashed. The people were given a chit for $30.00 redemption value. I left my phone at home. Some of us that had four wheel drives decided to just leave the road and head overland. As we got closer to the ridge, we were stopped by armed militia. We could not go any further. We could wait, or turn around and go back to the road. Men, that I suspect were special forces, had climbed the ridge from the back side and captured the snipers. They were at that moment coming down the ridge to take them to Mesquite where they would be let go. They weren’t prisoners, they were just going to be replaced by friendlies.

Because of the roadblock on I-15, people refused to be searched, and refused to turn back. They just pulled off the road and parked. It was like a dam backing up a river. Soon the feds were trapped between the Americans who had already gotten through, and the Americans that had been stopped on the highway. The BLM agents went into full panic mode and called for help. LVPD which had REFUSED to show up to help Americans HAD to show up to rescue BLM that was now trapped and helpless. The blockade was SEVEN MILES LONG! That’s a potload of people.

A group of armed Americans along with local cowboys went to Mesquite to liberate the cows that had been confiscated and held by BLM. They were being driven back home in an old fashioned cattle drive. The feds say it was voluntary, don’t believe it.

I was basically standing around twiddling my thumbs when the word came down that the Director of BLM had surrendered and all forces would be withdrawn. I could not go on. The road was blocked and would be blocked probably for the rest of the day at least. A bunch of us turned around and left. It was over. There was THOUSANDS of people there, and more arriving every minute. The ranch, Gold Butte, the entire area was completely surrounded by Americans. The highway was completely blocked in both directions of people trying to get through. Everyone was very peaceful and friendly. No fights or anything. There was a rumor in the line, that some of the mercenaries hired by the feds had defected and were now on the side of the Americans.

I came back and immediately saw this pack of lies and half truths.

At one point, I-15 was closed in both directions, about seven miles south of Mesquite, because protesters had blocked the freeway. Nearly two dozen police officers and a SWAT unit were at the scene to keep the peace and assist the BLM enforcement officers to safely leave the area. They were scared crapless!

When you click on his picture it takes you to a nice story about him and his dog. Quote from the story.

Last spring, Salem BLM Rangers Mike Roop, Phil Rheiner, and Adam Sulley approached a group of 120 people in the Molalla River Corridor. “As we approached this large group, people were very aware of Gunner and much more willing to comply. If you have a barking dog in your truck, people tend to do what you ask” said Roop.

There were some important lessons to be learned from this situation. The not so obvious one but very important lesson, did you take note of those around you who were on the side of the feds and thought the bundys deserved the treatment they got? Those are the people whom you need to hold out at a distance from you and yours. They are the ones who are not to be trusted on almost any level. If they aren’t the ones who will report you for...fill in the blank...weapons, provisions, whatever, they will be cheering on the black helmets while flash bangs are shot thru your windows and your doors are being smashed in.

You were stopped by armed militia? What did they say? What did you say to them? How did you know about the snipers being captured? How did you know about the cell phones, etc? I’m not doubting you, this is just really amazing.

Roop is one of 0bamas new army who has no problem shooting US citizens.

A true JBT who is loyal only to a paycheck.

He would have fit right in with the German SS if he had blond hair and blue eyes.

I was hesitant to post this, but given the lack of in-depth coverage I figure the more the better. The facts will have to sort themselves out.
This came as an email with this as the header:

Subject: VIRAL PLEASE!: A person my wife knows tried to get to the site in NV (from trusted correspondent)

Our thanks to RW, a trusted correspondent, for this. Well, Folks, it’s interesting, isn’t it? This blockade, and especially the absolutely blatantly illegal smashing of the cell phones, was not reported in the news. Folks, there is NO law that supports the confiscation and destruction of people’s property, or even a law that bans travel in this way without a valid justification!

Thus they blocked not only the roads but also the information!

This is how the government, working hand in hand with the media, tries to control us.

That is why this message must go viral.

The person who wrote this needs to report this illegal act, along with any friends who were with her at the time. It needs to get to the msm. Never assume the media will not pick up the news eventually. Remember that Fox eventually did carry this. The will also no doubt carry this news as well because they are pro-GOP and want to get rid of Obama, and this makes Obama look like what he is, a tyrant.

Don’t be discouraged when the news won’t carry your experiences. Get together with other witnesses and submit these news items. Go to the news web sites and use the submission forms.

Intel. Just keep that free flow of information going. Names and faces. That’s why the cowards wear the balaclavas. They THINK they’re special operators, but really just gang members under the protection of the power elites. All the little alphabet bureaucrats got their little special forces wannabes who just love picking on middle aged law abiding citizens, but would CRAP their pants going into a known crime gang neighborhood trying to enforce the gun laws and other bullsh$t regulations on their property.

This is part of the war trying to increase food costs and destroying our economy so we all have to go to the government with our hands out for scraps of food and fuel.

Well, congratulations to that hero, Michael Roop. He’ll be promoted, just like the agents who shot the mother with her baby in her arms at Ruby Ridge, and the agents who burned the children alive in Waco . Those atrocities are resume enhancers when Democrats are running these agencies.

This isn’t the only “teachable moment” we’ve been provided and it won’t be the last. There are plenty of people closer to home than this website who will slavishly support any action as long as there is a “law” written down somewhere. Get most cops in an unguarded moment and they will say they would load Anne Frank onto a railcar if there is a law and they are ordered to enforce it. Lots of people who aren’t cops who would go along with that, too.

Yes, they brought him down from Oregon.

Remember that the Chinese brought in troops from the hinterland to clear Tienanmen Square. Local troops and authority cannot be trusted to suppress their friends and neighbors.

Didn't the Nuremberg defendants use the "I was only following orders" defense?

militias will probably not be going public in any way.
first-hand reports will have to come from “civilians”.
I recall that the FAA set up a no-fly zone, and that cell phone towers were disabled.
I want to see the $30 receipt for a destroyed cell phone posted somewhere.
