Oregon Standoff: Robert 'LaVoy' Finicum Dead, Bundys Arrested

The world is a safer place.

In cooperation with the FBI, police hunted down their targets about 20 miles north of Burns, Oregon on Tuesday, January 26th, 2016. Mark that day down in history, folks, as the day the old west was given a warning shot - a warning shot that said very loud and clear to the American public: Don’t mess with the government, Don’t question authority, Don’t stand up for the Constitution or your supposed “rights,” Just submit or die.

According to the Oregonian:

The leaders were on the highway bound for John Day, where they were scheduled to participate in an evening community meeting set up by residents. A crowd of several hundred had gathered at the John Day Senior Center and were subsequently told the "guest speakers" would not be appearing.

 

Arrested during a roadside stop North of Burns on Tuesday were (clockwise from top left) Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox, Peter Santilli, Joseph O'Shaughnessy and Ryan Payne. They are being held in the Multnomah County Jail.
 

The road was blockaded and the cowboy, Robert 'LaVoy' Finicum, was shot dead in the street while supposedly “resisting arrest”. No police were hurt. The example was made, precedent set, game, set, match.

Why am I not surprised? This whole situation was manufactured by the media to paint a gruesome picture of the “occupiers” of the remote Malheur Wilderness Refuge cabin as deranged lunatics, arsonists, and terrorists who were endangering the communities of Oregon. They were painted as people with no thought other than mayhem, who needed to be rounded up and put away where they can never again see the light of day until they learn that compliance with the law, whatever unjust law, is the only way to live in America. Lesson learned dear Overlord. We will comply. We will obey. We will lick the boots of the fascist dictator in charge and humbly submit to the robot “officers” sent to round up dissidents, or we will get crushed.

And now, the public can cheer. The show is over; the “good guys” have won. Families can go back to their peaceful existences knowing that those in charge will stay in charge, and any deviation from the norm will be dealt with in a swift and painful manner. Let’s all stand and give a round of applause to the victors. We have struck a blow at freedom and democracy. The world is a safer place.

That is the story line. But it is far from over. There is no doubt that charges will pile up against those arrested and they will be branded by the FBI as domestic terrorists just like Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son, Steven, who sit in Federal prison for starting a backfire to save their land that just happens to be sitting in a wilderness area covered by the BLM - a wilderness area targeted by Uranium interests.

But don’t even try to connect the dots here, folks. The whole ending will be scripted to cover up the facts until amnesia sets in and the public forgets about the incident. A fading memory. Oh, yeah, the Bundy incident. Wasn’t that in Oregon? Didn’t terrorists try and take over a place called Burns?

Meanwhile, an open pit uranium mine spewing toxic filth sits right down the road in what used to be a pristine wilderness where ranchers let their cattle roam. Mommy, what are ranchers? What is a cow? Ranchers are terrorists, dear, and cows are things that are cut up and put in packages for us to eat for dinner.

It is possible that AIPAC was worried that Trump wouldn’t be pro-Israel enough, after last week’s gaffe when Trump said he would be “neutral” between Israel and the Palestinians.
