As the standoff in Oregon between a militia led by Ammon Bundy and the federal government enters its fifth day, patriot organization Oath Keepers announced it had reliable information that President Barack Obama’s feds may be ready to turn the situation into a new Waco.
In a statement released on its website Monday, the patriot group made up of first responders dedicated to upholding the Constitution said that one of its sources indicated the feds were sending serious firepower out to the Malheur National Wildlife Reserve near Burns, Oregon.
“Oath Keepers has received very credible information from an active duty source within the special operations community that at least one SOD-X … unit under the command of Joint Special Operations Command has been tasked for this standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Reserve and moved to the area,” the statement read.
“That source contacted one of our long-time members who is a retired Special Forces 1st Sgt. (who has known the source for over 20 years).”
“Now, of course, just because such a unit has been sent to the area for possible action does not mean it will be used,” the statement continued. “But we DO NOT trust the Obama Administration to do this right … ”
“As was reported in The Washington Times after the Bundy Ranch (in 2014) standoff ended, the Obama Administration did consider the use of military force during that standoff. Fortunately, they decided against it, but that doesn’t mean cooler heads will prevail this time around.”
SOD-X stands for Special Operations Detachment-X, a secretive National Guard detachment described byTheBlaze in 2014 as “highly-trained ‘quiet professionals’ to support joint military operations around the globe.”
Custer was a tyrant and bully......he should have died a lot sooner. I've NEVER considered him a hero.
Custer graduated last in his class at West Point. He was known by his fellow cadets as the “dare-devil of the class” who devoted more energy to pranks than to his academic studies. His demerits earned him extra guard duty on most Saturdays, but he did manage to graduate from West Point in 1861, albeit as the lowest-ranking cadet, now known as “the goat.”
Custer paid great attention to his appearance. He wore a black velvet uniform with coils of gold lace, spurs on his boots, a red scarf around his neck and a large, broad-brimmed sombrero. Custer took particular pride in his cascading golden locks, which he perfumed with cinnamon oil.
Custer was twice court-martialed. Prior to graduating from West Point, he was court-martialed for neglect of duty in failing to stop a fight between two cadets when he was officer of the guard and received a light punishment. Much more serious was his 1867 court-martial in which he was convicted on eight counts that included conduct to the prejudice of good order and military discipline, and absence without leave from his command after he left part of his regiment on the Kansas frontier while he returned without orders to Fort Riley in order to see Libbie. Custer was suspended from rank and command without pay for a year, but Sheridan reinstated him after 10 months to lead a bloody campaign against the Cheyenne.
Buffalo Bill helped to mythologize Custer’s Last Stand. After Custer’s death, his widow devoted the remaining 57 years of her life writing books and delivering lectures that cast her husband as a martyr who gallantly staged his “Last Stand.” William “Buffalo Bill” Cody, who had briefly scouted for Custer, also contributed to the mythmaking. Weeks after the Battle of Little Bighorn, he killed and scalped a Cheyenne warrior named Yellow Hair and declared it “the first scalp for Custer.” Buffalo Bill replayed the scene repeatedly throughout his theatrical career and incorporated a re-enactment of “Custer’s Last Rally,” complete with several Native Americans who had actually been present at the Battle of Little Bighorn, into his famed Wild West show.
Washington had three divisions, six brigades, and thirty-eight regiments in 1775... although poorly trained and marginally equipped he managed to fend off the worlds premier military.
A Division has approximately 10-18K men, a Brigade 2-3K and a regiment 1000K. Washington started the war in 1775 with approximately 80-100K men under arms.
How may divisions do we have Marilyn... none... we would be lucky to filed a fully trained Regiment... approximately 1000 men.
Then why aren't our military and ex-military starting small groups on the side to train those of us who don't have military training? It's better we be prepared for a day when we need to come together than just sitting and waiting. I can't find ANY kind of group like this around here. Why the hell not? We COULD be preparing...but nobody seems to be willing to even prepare on a small scale either. Why aren't ex-military taking any kind of leadership role either?
Ronald A. Nelson Col.USA. The best strategy is the invisible justice "Lone Wolf" to cut the head of the predator. followed by a consumer boycott on gasoline nation wide and the parallelization of work for two days in the nation. It takes organization but can be done and will cost the oligarchs millions of Dollars. The demise of our country is done by the oligarchs greed.so we must hit them hard and stop their income.
The Oathkeepers are not, and never were, there...they have advised against this action. Go to their site and read Stuart Rhodes' comments.
Stuart Rhodes is NO hero. And it's foolish to take his word as if it comes from the Bible. Rhodes has a big ego, and nothing to go with it. Not to mention he likes taking credit for work that others have done.
As Stuart Rhodes said this is not the same situation as the Bundy Ranch that required a confrontation. These people need to stand down...
That was the message I had read also from Rhodes. A strong clear head is needed. It is also possible that Aamon Bundy has not checked out all of the people standing with him. The feds could have plants within the ranks to escalate this situation, like Ferguson and Baltimore.
Rhodes is a coward, liar, and takes credit for the Bundy Ranch that wasn't his.
BLM setting fires and burning houses.
Nothing surprises me as the government has tried taking the American people's land and it is time they learned they can't do the white people the way they are doing them. Obama and his scumbags think they are the can do anything they want to and that includes taking their land, animals, and whatever else they want to take.from us. We need to stand up these idiots and make sure they take nothing else. The Militia need people in Oregon and where ever they can come from to help these people. If they don't help the Militia I don't think they are standing up against the government. The Militia doesn't need to start a war, because Obama will try to do Martial Law and then stay in office with no election for Trump, Cruz, Carson, or anyone else won't be president, but the people of Oregon need to stand up with the Militia so the government won't take people's land or anything else. Please stand up for this men as they are doing everything in their power to keep these idiots won't try the WACO fight.
