Cliven Bundy's ranch next? UPDATE: UPDATE2: Cliven Bundy arrested. Last Malheur occupiers surrendering 2/11/16.



I have a post on the strategy being used to deal with those occupying the Malheur Wildlife Refuge.

It is about the clever policy of Obama's administration regarding the occupiers at Malheur Wildlife Refuge. Just let the occupiers sit there until everyone is really, really sick of them, and the militia reveals what goof balls they are and how self-serving and self-aggrandizing they are.

The public was reminded that these public lands are for the public benefit and learned that the "Sagebrush rebellion" was mostly a desire to use the public's land as if it was their own, it was an argument over government welfare, it was self-entitlement.

The federal government just waited until the local people in the county, the Governor of Oregon, and the Paiute tribe were screaming to have them removed.

It seems that Ammon Bundy and the other militia members forgot that they were committing insurrection and left off for a speaking engagement and on an isolated stretch of highway going through vast stretches of empty plains the FBI just stopped them and arrested them, except for one idiot who didn't realize that the game was over. It didn't take much strategy by the FBI to get the militia to think they had some type of immunity and become reckless.

Four members remain at the Refuge and they are negotiating their surrender. The FBI seems content to wait them out as their food runs out and as these remaining goof balls realize that they have no options and they aren't negotiating with their high school principal and their whiny excuses are not going to be accepted.

After the Malheur occupation is finally over I am sure we will have reports of the damage that the militia did and what a mess it is to cleanup further discrediting not only the occupation but militias in general.

So once the whole Malheur Wildlife Refuge mess is over what next?

I think that the next move will be to go and collect the grazing fees that Cliven Bundy  owes the federal government.

It will be a good time to do this for multiple reasons.

1. The public blames the Malheur Wildlife Refuge mess on the federal government's response to Cliven Bundy's standoff and they will be supportive of measures to get this matter with Cliven Bundy finished so there is no more of these occupations.

2. Rural counties everywhere are now likely to be identifying with Harney County and their plight instead of being sympathetic to the Bundy's.

3. Militia crazies watching the pathetic end of the Malheur occupiers will likely realize that they  don't want to end up whining on Facebook and then in prison. Cliven Bundy will undoubtedly get some militia crazies showing up, but probably not too many. These militia types are mostly blowhards and doing play acting. They don't want to go to jail.

4. The public has gotten a good look at the militia and how they are really goofs. The militias out there and other right wing crank groups won't want to be identified with anything Bundy and any actions that remind the public of Malheur Wildlife Refuge. They won't want to show up at Cliven Bundy's ranch.  Also, politicians that supported the Bundy's will likely have second thoughts.

5. Obama gave the nation a civics lesson on why there is the law and what happens when the lawless are not stopped by the law.

6. The militia learned that in the end the federal government will shoot. They learned that delusional play acting can have real consequences.

The government will want to move quickly while the Malheur occupation is fresh in people's mind.

Also, this type of nonsense where Bureau of Land Management people are shot at in Nevada can't be tolerated.

When this is all over I think that various types of blustering play acting will continue to look ridiculous. Other extremist groups may still do this type of play acting but will know if it just that. For those extremist groups that continue they will realize that the federal government is willing to act.

Most importantly these extremists will learn that they could end up looking ridiculous, pathetic and in jail and that will act as a great restraint on them.

Also, nonsense, like reported in this story, is not likely to be tolerated anymore.

Take a bulldozer to federal land and the government now is empowered and you will go to jail and lose the bulldozer.


Cliven Bundy has been arrested.

Thursday morning 2/11/2016 plan is for the last occupiers to surrender.

Hillary Clinton and Reconstruction


I should point out that Bill Clinton wrote three letters of congratulations to the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

Also, I sent a questionnaire to Hillary about presidential policies relevant to fighting neo-Confederacy and I didn't get a response.

The story is all over the internet. I would like Hillary Clinton to answer the questionnaire.

Lew Rockwell defending Ammon Bundy's loony militia, then thinks better of it.

You can follow the developments of the seizure at the Oregon Public Broadcast here

Pro-secession Lew Rockwell has been running stories on Ammon Bundy and his militia occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon.

In this post Ron Paul sees the militia occupation as the beginning of great civil unrest.

This is another Lew Rockwell posting seeing imminent revolution. 

Some other Lew Rockwell posts on the Malheur occupation. 

Justin Raimondo is probably regretting this story. 

Now even Lew Rockwell has figured out the U.S. governments strategy in dealing with Ammon Bundy and his militia and posts about it appear to have stopped. . It is an old strategy of "Give him enough rope and he will hang himself." Lew Rockwell postings in support of the Refuge have stopped. 

Obama has figured out that letting these clowns continue to occupy the Refuge is a great way to damage the reputation of some opposition groups to the Democrats. Every day they are out there, the occupying militia more and more appear as fools. With idleness pressing upon them they do crazy things. How long will it be before they are fighting among themselves? 

Democrats must love stories like this.

Frustrated, Bundy's militia people are now inventing their own government for a country they are not from and start issuing statements and judgments so they can threaten local officials elected by local people. 

They are also starting to destroy public property. They are desperate for some reaction to make themselves look like heroes instead of goof balls. 

Ammon Bundy's militia's continuing antics will continue to taint anti-government rhetoric in general. 

Also, there are a lot of rural counties with not too many people and they are watching and seeing what is happening in Harney County in Oregon and beginning to realize that their safety is dependent on the rule of law and the ability of the state and federal governments to be there and uphold the law. 

Locally in these rural counties there must be a turning tide against militia talk. Who wants some heavily armed goof balls coming to their town? 

Obama has to just wait quietly until locals in Oregon are screaming for him to do something about the militia and then he might.  Or perhaps not getting any reaction from the U.S. government the militia will just up and leave and then over the next month after they leave they can all be individually arrested. 

Meantime the so-called Sagebrush Rebellion is getting its reputation trashed as these goof balls continue to get national attention. The public tolerance of militias is going down by the day. 

Ammon Bundy was planning on a showdown and now is desperate to have one. It seems that he didn't have a plan B. Being goof balls of course they didn't. 

Also, it has gotten some local groups to start standing up for the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. This is a link to a video by a local Oregon group of hunters and anglers who are against the militia and they went out and tore down the militia sign that was hung over the entry way sign to the Refuge.

It won't be long before every group of hunters and anglers will realize that the militia movement is a threat. 

The League of the South has realized that these guys are bad news. 

The Council of Conservative Citizens had one Jan. 8, 2016 post but seem to have otherwise lost interest.

Neo-Confederates like to use heated rhetoric.

I suspect there will be a lot less tolerance for that type of talk.

Finally what was the Confederacy but a violent insurrection.

Russian interest in damaging the United States through supporting secession and insurrection continues

The following link is to an article about the militia occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and is obviously sympathetic to the militia. It is a Russian news outlet.

I also find again my blog has heavy Russian readership, greater than the American readership. (See screen capture from this morning of Google statistics of my readership at the bottom of this blog post.)

This is not the first time I have had a surge of interest in my blog from Russia

Movements can be aided in many ways besides money and materials. Often a movement most needs prestige to recruit members and gain credibility with the larger public. The League of the South has been getting just such type of support from the Russians.

This blog posting refers to an article in The New York Review of Books explaining how Putin is using the media to undermine the West.

I think that it is clear that the Russian government is eager to back any insurrection or secession movement as a counter measure to the United States.

I am sure the Russians have concluded that the League of the South is of little significance, but I think they are hedging their bets. Movements can suddenly  grow. Though I think that if there is a significant  Southern nationalist movement the League of the South won't be leading it.

It is understandable that people react with amusement and laughter to these groups, but it should be understood also that there are powers out there with great resources very interested in these groups These hostile powers prowl and sniff seeking opportunity seeking opportunities to injure the United States.

Dothan, Alabama

There is an article about Dothan, Alabama and the recent controversy at

It seems that it is a somewhat tangled affair where some claims about the police there can't be substantiated and other items seem to be true.

It is known however that the police chief was a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV). The police chief has admitted to having been a member but claims to no longer to be a member.

I was contacted about the SCV and I supplied a lot of primary documentation.

This is the article.

I am hoping to get the general public aware of what type of organization the SCV is and so this will help.
