Warning on OR Standoff: Military Special OP Assets Assigned. Remove Children At Once

Stewart Rhodes, Founder and President of Oath Keepers says  URGENT Warning on OR Standoff: Military Special OP Assets Have Been Assigned for Standoff. Get All Children Out of There Immediately.

USA –  -(Ammoland.com)- Oath Keepers has received very credible information from an active duty source within the special operations community that at least one SOD-X (Reserve/National Guard Special Operations Detachment) unit under the command of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has been tasked for this standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Reserve and moved to the area.

Given this, we should expect that other special operations assets, such as Delta Force, will also be involved if the Obama Administration decides to give the green light on a military raid/strike. And we should expect the presence of the infamous FBI HRT (which were present at both Ruby Ridge and Waco).

Due to this, anyone who has children there, at the wildlife refuge, needs to get them out immediately, and DO NOT take any more children there for any reason (and we do know that some children, including a baby, have been seen there).

We do not need to have the risk of dead children in this incident. It is unconscionable and immoral for anyone to place children at risk of being in the middle of a firefight or military raid/strike on the armed men holding that federal wildlife refuge. Now, of course, just because military special operations units have been sent to the area and are tasked with a possible action does not mean it will be done. It may not. But we DO NOT trust the Obama Administration to do this right, which would be to handle it like the Montana Freeman standoff rather than the Waco standoff, and anyone who thinks that Obama wouldn’t dare drop the hammer on Ammon and his men is a fool. We hope “the adults in the room” in the Administration and in the federal LEO and military community will keep that from happening, but hope is not an operational plan. We don’t trust them, and you shouldn’t either, so:

Get, and keep, children off the friggin X.

This is not a “free speech” barbecue at Bundy Ranch with live music by Jordan Page. This is a whole different animal. Children have no business being there. In fact, there should be no non-combatants (no women and children) there at all. This is not a family event. The only people there should be the armed men who are willing to die there with Ammon Bundy and his brothers and a couple of embedded reporters. If they want to put themselves at risk, that is their choice, but don’t have children there. If a dozen men die in a shootout, that is one thing, but if children die, there will be a civil war. ~ Oath Keepers

Short Oath Keepers Statement on this Standoff

I will post a longer statement later, but for now, here is a brief statement on this situation, in general:

Oath Keepers adamantly opposes the armed takeover of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. This is not in keeping with the moral imperative of only using force in defense when people’s lives are at stake, as at Bundy Ranch in 2014. In this case, neither the Hammonds nor their neighbors were in imminent threat of being murdered, and neither the Hammonds nor their neighbors asked for any form of armed standoff. In fact, they oppose it. This is being done by outsiders who mislead and deceived locals, deceived the Hammonds, and deceived the patriot movement by luring them in with a peaceful rally and then attempting to rope them into a premeditated, manufactured armed standoff. Both Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne (who we suspect is an agent provocateur) told the locals in the Committee of Safety, at a public town hall meeting on December 15, that they, the locals on the committee, would be making the decisions on what was to be done, how, and when. That was a lie, as they were already staging their men and supplies in the area to takeover the wildlife refuge, and had already planned out this takeover of the federal facility at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge.

By doing this, they have given Obama the best New Years present he could hope for – an example of militia movement/patriot aggression, which gives up the high ground while also having the least credibility and support from the locals possible, after lying to them, and also the least support from the patriot community, who were also blind-sided by Ammon and Ryan Payne.

However, as much as we oppose what Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne have done, we must warn the Obama Administration that it does not have free reign to “Waco” the people in this standoff by using deadly military force, such as an SOD-X, Delta Force, or the FBI HRT to kill them all. The Federal government must respect their right to due process and do all it can to end this standoff peacefully, without loss of life.

It must treat it like the Freeman standoff, not the Waco standoff. There will be no more free Wacos, as Mike Vanderbgh, Founder of the Three Percenter movement puts it. Treat this with kid gloves or risk a civil war.

And what about the United States Constitution it says federal troops shall not be used against the American public.

For the life of me I really don’t know who’s right in this whole affair but I don’t believe that armed military troops have any right being used against the American public as per our Constitution

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the use of the U.S. military against American civilians.

They need to maintain their oath and take out the criminals in Washington DC . I’ve heard it said that the military might have to act to prevent a, “constitutional crisis”. My question is just how many constitutional crisis s will it take ??????

If these SPECOP teams are U.S. military personnel did ‘somebody’ sign an executive order that does an ‘end-run’ around the Posse Comitatus Act?

The military cannot be used by anyone in the government on U.S. soil.. this is law.. and if the story is true, we have every legal right to defend…. but since this cannot be true.. no one is this dumb we can assume the FBI. ATF are training with specops to complete this with as much carnage as possible. This being said, sadly I am ashamed of those who dare to use our own against us..A call for a peaceful solution is still on the table. if not then we need to have as many cameras there and sound equipment… Read more »

Yep save the Children by burning them alive, I mean even the remote possibility some were being molested should be reason enough to immolate all of them, after all they had already lost their innocence. The acronymic services involved could have waited and got Koresh on one of his many shopping excursions. Prior to doing a No-Knock warrant, they could of turned this over to the State, the killing of American Children might and probably would have been averted. But instead they brought in Bradley’s, M113’s, a CEV, a Tank Retriever, and snipers in Helicopters. There wasn’t any call for… Read more »

For those who are disbelievers in the Ammon Bundy cause, just take at look at the information that is brought out in this short video:

TheHossUSMC Lied Betraying His Own State & Ammon Bundy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYoWZ4woAcE

The testimonies speak for themselves. The question is, why is this info being suppressed?

If the feds just ignored these protesters, I am sure the protesters will get bored and wonder away after a few months. The protesters plan seems contingent on the feds assaulting the facility.

Actually, no Jon, the warrant WASN’T legal. It was a rubber-stamp from a friendly judge. If you’ve ever seen the video of the ATF rolling up in a pickup drawn horse trailer, you also know that they fired first. And the rest is all there for anybody to see in one convenient documentary “Waco: A New Revelation.” It’s up on youtube last i checked, and all it is a look at the PILE of forensic evidence that the Texas Rangers uncovered that completely kills any hope of innocence you have for the federal cops. The Clinton administration barbecued [most of]those… Read more »

Tex,
First the FBI responded because 4 ATF agents were killed and 16 wounded on a search warrant. Say what you may but it was a legal search warrant. So, stop whining for a child molester and his cult. Those people died because of his choices and not that of the FBIs’. So move on!!!!!

If the FBI loses any people in this thing I hope they don’t act shocked and whine like they done in Waco when they illegally tried to enter that compound. If Bundy and his people get killed in this thing they brought it on their own self. This don’t have nothing in common with Waco or the NV Bundy Ranch grazing thing. It’s hard to believe that Bundy is such an idiot he won’t negotiate with the FBI for a peaceful resolution to this thing. From all the info.I have read about this it sounds like the Feds are totally… Read more »
