Thanks Steven...

Dewey Mason:  Just for your info, the people in Oregon that are occupying are a very few percentage of the Patriots nationwide.  I do have a problem with what is going on there.  Bundy set up a citizens Safety Committee, assuring them that they controlled what would happen there in Oregon.  Then he occupied the property, without notifying the Committee, and has since not included them.  So there really isn't much local support.  The committee has written a letter to Bundy, thanking him, and saying they would carry on the fight locally, and asked that he takes his people and leave peacefully, since there wasn't any thing more for him to achieve. I believe that under the circumstances, he should follow their advice.  You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink. 

What's your source for this info?

stated code in 10 USC Article 16. section 46  Title 10 armed forces.

What does this have to do with your comment to Dewey Mason?

The meaning of a militia is for each state to have them in their towns and cities to protect THAT state in case of what ever type of attack on that state, the states formed   a central governance to over see the MILITARY protection of the states, now that the FED"S want all the slices of this cake made of all the states we all wish we had kept our independance and now cant fight back. Does that seem to meet my comments?

Sorry thought you were asking me.

Militias original intent is to protect the people from the government--federal and STATE.  

“A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves… and include all men capable of bearing arms. . . To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms… The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle.” – Letters From the Federal Farmer to the Republican, Letter XVIII, January 25, 1788

“(W)hereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it.” – Federal Farmer, Anti-Federalist Letter, No.18, The Pennsylvania Gazette, February 20, 1788

If each state like here in Texas to inforce the Convention of States to as this prosses begins ask your Govenor to allow cities and towns to build their Militas for the Govenor to call on when needed.

I agree.

ACCORDING TO OATHKEEPERS THE BUNDY MILITIA IS NOT EVEN A TRUE PATRIOT MILITIA OATHKEEPERS SAYS THERE ARE SEVERAL FED AGITATORS MIXED INTO THAT BUNCH!!! OATHKEEPERS BELIEVES THIS IS A GOVERNMENT SET UP BY THE OBAMA ADMINSTRATION TO STIR UP TROUBLE SO HE WOULD HAVE A REASON TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW SO HE CAN BEGIN CONFISCATING OUR GUNS!!!

Maybe you should investigate why many Oath Keepers have parted ways with Rhodes...  And become part of other militias.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
