As I wrote in a piece last week, the Bureau of Land Management is in the process of another land grab – this time a gold mining district in southwestern Oregon. In Bundy Ranch style they’ve threatened to burn down buildings at the mines if the owners don’t vacate by April 25th.
The mine owners were served papers, several times, ordering them off the property, but instead of caving in to the BLM mobsters, they called in the Oathkeepers to stand guard over the property until they get their day in court, which hasn’t been set as of this past Friday.
The Oathkeepers want to dispel any rumors that they are in a stand-off situation with the BLM. So far, the BLM has kept their distance, and the men from Oathkeepers are on site to ensure they do just that. Area-Coordinator Joseph Rice made a statement to clarify their situation.
They are requesting that people not converge on the property as it is in rough terrain with extreme weather changes and their presence will only cause chaos.
The following is an interview with one of the mine owners. Note the copy of Essential Liberty in his shirt pocket. For those of you who may not be familiar with this publication, it is a handy little book that contains a copy of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, as well as other pertinent documents essential to Americans who know their rights. It can be obtained at the Patriot Post’s website.
Although it is a comfort to know we have groups like the Oathkeepers, the Three Percenters and the Minutemen, who will stand up for Americans’ rights, it’s a shame we need such groups to keep our government at bay.
“Not on our watch.”
