    Though the government narrative would have you believe they were darn near having a Sunday BBQ with friends on April 12, 2014, they were actually very heavily armed with hundreds of agents ready to take on any dissenters of their version of law. This did not happen out of the blue, and it could not be set up overnight. How long had the government been planning their attack? Why did the government escalate the situation? Were they hoping for bloodshed? These are just a few of the questions we have been asking since the Bunkerville Standoff. Deb Jordan, of the...

    India and China have agreed to an “expeditious disengagement” of troops in a disputed border area where their soldiers have been locked in a stand-off for more than two months, India’s foreign ministry said on Monday. The decision comes ahead of a summit of the BRICS nations - a grouping that also includes Brazil, Russia and South Africa - in China next month, which Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend. Indian and Chinese troops have been confronting each other at the Doklam plateau near the borders of India, its ally Bhutan and China, in the most serious...

    Where did the USS Carl Vinson or the “armada” that was “steaming” full speed ahead toward North Korea disappear to? As I was looking over the news I was shocked to read it was on its way to the Sea of Japan. That is exactly where Vice President Pence is today. Pence did a wonderful and honorable job in South Korea for the American people. He spoke directly to the Kim Dynasty when he said “all options were on the table.” The Kim Dynasty also includes Lil’Kim’s sister, who has as much influence in North Korea as Kim. So President...

    Four of the seven remaining Oregon standoff defendants who were set to go to trial Feb. 14 have decided to accept negotiated deals and are expected to change their pleas during hearings in federal court Monday. Sean Anderson and his wife, Sandra Anderson -- among the last four holdouts during the 41-day occupation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge last year -- as well as Dylan Anderson and Darryl Thorn are set to enter guilty pleas to a single misdemeanor trespass charge and have the remaining felony and misdemeanor charges dismissed. They're expected to face one year of probation and...

    The FBI on Wednesday evening moved in on the last four occupiers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, the Oregonian newspaper reported. The four armed, anti-government protesters had been indicted last week with 12 others on charges of conspiring to impede federal officers during an armed standoff at the compound. The takeover at Malheur started on Jan. 2 when their leader, Ammon Bundy, and followers, seized buildings at the refuge in a protest against federal control over millions of acres public land in the West.

    Mormon rancher LaVoy Finicum was killed during the Oregon militia standoff on January 26. He's survived by his Jeanette. Finicum was 54 years old when he died. Together he and his wife maintained a ranch in northern Arizona. The ranch was staffed and managed by the couple's 11 foster children. They were kids the couple took in, troubled kids with criminal histories. During the standoff, Finicum complained that the state had taken away the children because of his high profile role with the militia. Meanwhile on his wife, Jeanette's LinkedIn page, she lists foster care provider as her full time...
  • Experts: Oregon standoff may be small, but it’s just the tip of a growing militia iceberg

    The seizure of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon by armed anti-government extremists has attracted national attention and raised questions about whether the takeover is a powder keg about to blow. But experts who monitor the anti-government movement say an even greater concern is lurking behind the confrontation that erupted Saturday at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the high desert of eastern Oregon. The militia movement, they say, is in the midst of a massive growth spurt at levels even greater than in the early 1990s after the Waco, Texas, standoff and the siege at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. It...

    A brief synopsis of the current Oregon standoff via Hot Air: It appears that we've got ourselves another militia standoff out West, this time in rural, eastern Oregon, where armed activists are taking issue with the federal government over control of a wildlife refuge and the fate of two ranchers who are supposed to be on the way to jail. Complicating the issue (at least in the eyes of the media) is the fact that the protest is being organized and led by three sons of Cliven Bundy...While this case has obviously been simmering for a while, it swelled out...

    How did an armed takeover of a federal nature reserve in Oregon come about? It dates back to when Eastern Oregon father-son ranchers, Dwight Hammond and his son Steve, were convicted of lighting fires on federal land. The Hammond Ranch story began in 1991, when Steven Hammond started a fire on his own land for noxious weed control. The fire escaped and burned an acre of BLM land that was leased by the Hammond family for cattle grazing. Then in 2001, the Hammonds started another fire on their property that ran off the Hammond land and consumed 139 acres of...

    Press Democrat ^ | 12 Aug 2015
    When a Sebastopol man locked himself in his house after a family dispute Wednesday and ignored commands to surrender, police there decided a forced entry might “incite a violent response.” Instead, the officers left. However, they returned with an arrest warrant about four hours later. With the help of another resident of the Juniper Avenue home, they gained entry and arrested Alexander Moser without incident. Police responded shortly before 1 p.m. to the home after a resident there reported that her grandson, Moser, was making threats to kill his brother, according to a Sebastopol Police news release. Officers later learned...

    SYDNEY (Reuters) - Religious leaders and ordinary Australians sought to defuse communal tensions on Monday, after a siege at a Sydney cafe by a gunman who forced hostages to display an Islamic flag raised fears of a backlash against the country's Muslim minority. Within hours of the attack on the Lindt cafe in the centre of the city, a Muslim group reported that women wearing the hijab had been spat on and the right-wing Australian Defence League called on followers to protest at two major mosques. The protests did not materialise and little is known about the true motives of...
