For the record:

Radio Free Redoubt and AmRRON do not condone the occupation of the Federal Wildlife Refuge Headquarters by patriots.

The federal government, and more specifically the Bureau of Land Management, have overreached beyond their constitutional boundaries, and have oppressed American citizens, including ranchers and miners, for decades. These actions have caused the frustrations of American Citizens – patriots – everywhere to boil over. The ranchers have exhausted all recourse in fighting an unjust ruling that they return to prison for a controlled burn which got out of control many years ago. When people have no further recourse for a redress of legitimate grievances, desperation sets in.

After a peaceful demonstration involving approximately 300 patriots in Burns, Oregon on Saturday, January 2nd, a group estimated at 150 patriots, drove thirty miles to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters building and have occupied it. They stated that they were prepared to maintain their position for years, if necessary. They are demanding that the government stop violating the constitution and respect citizens’ land rights. Unfortunately, the objectives are not much more clearly defined than that. This move is poor timing, a poor location, and is tactically and strategically unsound. Those on location are truly patriots, but this was a poor decision that will result in widely felt ramifications for all of us. We stand by the Hammonds and lift them up in prayer, but do not feel that the actions by the patriots at the Wildlife Refuge will net results that will help the Hammonds, nor the patriots on site.

Unfortunately, this comes at a time when the current administration is scheduled to meet to discuss gun safety laws. Furthermore, one of the patriots occupying the site is reportedly a veteran with PTSD. His accountability buddy posted on social media that the veteran expressed a desire to commit ‘suicide by government.’ This will only help to perpetuate the anti-gun, anti-American narrative with regard to gun control. They will certainly exploit this situation to their benefit, and to the detriment of patriots.

The Obama administration, with the help of the DHS, has been running the narrative that the biggest threat to US National Domestic Security are ‘right wing extremists.’

An objective assessment of the brewing conflict in our country would lead to the honest conclusion that an escalated conflict (Revolutionary or civil war) is all but inevitable at some point in our nation’s future.

This current development in Oregon will result in the implementation of policies and responses that will empower the leftist, anti-American forces, and prematurely hasten the inevitable conflict that is coming in our country.

Remember, not every patriot participated in the Boston Tea Party in 1773. Not everyone condoned it. But that was a significant event that led to heavy-handed responses by the British. After that, it was just a matter of time before the rest of the patriots were fighting for freedom and for their country, whether they were ready for it or not.

Pray for wisdom, discernment, and courage. And especially, pray for the wisdom to know when it is your time to act, and how.
