Oath Keepers

USA -(AmmoLand.com)- See the below video. Very interesting interaction between the Pacific Patriot Network (PPN) leadership delegation and the FBI (who were all kitted out with rifles, plate carriers, and chest rigs).

Among the PPN leaders are Brandon Curtiss, the founder of the Idaho III%; Brandon Rapolla, the Oregon Oath Keepers state CPT Coordinator; and Joseph Rice, the leader of the Josephine County, OR chapter of Oath Keepers (site of the Sugar Pine Mine operation this last year).

They are doing this under the banner of the Pacific Patriot Network, which is a coalition of groups from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, including local Oregon Oath Keepers chapters (and note that they stressed several times at an earlier press conference that they are not a militia, but that is what the media, including alternative media, insists on calling them).

Their purpose there in Harney County is to help open a line of dialogue and to serve as a buffer to prevent another Waco incident. This is a righteous mission, if done right, and we stand in full support of it.

However, at this time we are not doing a national call out for other Oath Keepers members to go there. The local Oregon guys, along with the very capable leaders of Idaho III%, appear to have this mission covered (of being a buffer and facilitating dialogue), and less is more when it comes to keeping things de-escalated, as is the stated wish of everyone involved, including Ammon Bundy.

Unless our guys in OR say they need our help for this mission, stay home and get your own AO squared away. Got a community Quick Reaction Force (QRF)? Have a neighborhood watch with real teeth? Can you answer the three critical questions of “who’s on your buddy team? Who’s on your fire team? Who’s on your squad?” Got a posse behind a good constitutional sheriff? Got Minuteman unit? Got civil defense unit? Got militia? If not, then you need to get that done before you even think of running off to another state, unless it’s a dire emergency, like Bundy Ranch was.

If this situation goes south, and the Obama Admin turns this into another Waco, the crap WILL hit the fan nationwide, since there are no more free Wacos – not anymore – and you will have your hands full right where you are, and in reaction, the first thing you should do is organize town and county militias for mutual defense. And that is something we will all need sooner or later.

So, start laying the groundwork for that now. Today.

For the Republic,
Stewart Rhodes
Founder and President of Oath Keepers

About Oath Keepers:

Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial. See the Oath Keepers Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey for details.

The traitors of the Constitution and America that are posting here saying “Bundy and the Patriotic Americans with him should go home” are communist supporting government propaganda agents.

Watch this video by a Constitutional lawyer and former prosecutor and learn the truth.

These FBI agents need to remember that their oath is to support and defend the Supreme Law of the land “the US Constitution” and any orders coming from their superiors and any laws that conflict with the US Constitution are illegal and should be disregarded and ignored.

Chetcox n paul3001, again, get off the computer, go to the library. Check out books on American History, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights. We the people, are, the militia. Here’s an idea. Along with background checks to purchase firearms, have a 10 question quiz, concerning the gun laws in American History. The folks in Oregon had every right to be armed, they were in no way threatening. I know you folks mean well with many of your comments. But please, research the basic fundamentals of your subject. While I really don’t trust A. Bundys motives, the group that met… Read more »

Not the best political or tactical position. In the weeds, cold time of year, isolated and weak position. The key thing the protesters (militia) might try to do is to get out information from the Constitution re: Article1, Section 8, Clause 17 which is Constitutional law regarding government owning property in the U.S. Hopefully the LEOs and their political morons involved in this situation will not get impatient and stupid as they did in Waco and attack–there is no rush to close this situation. It was that stupid attack and killing of innocent citizens in Waco by the feds to… Read more »

Just to illustrate the contrast, can anyone help describe what would in fact count as an actual militia? And why is that a sensitive term?

“If they are not a Militia why are they carrying firearms?”

Maybe because they are Americans. Want any other blindingly obvious answers?

“If this situation goes south, and the Obama Admin turns this into another Waco, the crap WILL hit the fan nationwide” Goodness gracious.. If not for the Federal Government keeping the heat and lights on for them, they would all be snow men at this point. It’s 2016, the romantic notion of range wars may gfet some of these guys off, but they can GO BACK HOME and do this nonsense in their own state. Ammon Bundy just secured a Federal loan for 475k 4 months ago, and just bought a 500k home in Eastern Nevada.. GO HOME man.. WE… Read more »
