Sorry, no posts today. PS: Believe none of the damn disinformation that's been circulating about the "Feds strike back."
Outta time. Barely could get the comments released and I answered no emails either. Have to get to the airport in PS: Believe none of the damn disinformation that's been circulating about the "Feds strike back." time for TSA to fondle me, the perverts. Will take my computer and if they'll let me carry it on, I'll update as I can between flights. It looks like half my email is such crap and as far as I know there's not a bit of truth to it.

Up To One Million New Yorkers Seize Opportunity To Not Register Their Firearms Ahead of NY SAFE ACT Deadline
With the deadline set to take effect, the head of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence — one of the SAFE Act’s biggest proponents — said gun owners should be expected to follow the law. “They can make all the noise they want, but the law is the law,” said Leah Gunn Barrett, the group’s executive director.Yeah, after the conversations I had with some VERY militant New Yorkers at Knob Creek, all I can say is "good luck with that."
Although federal agents left the Nevada ranch standoff over Cliven Bundy’s land this past weekend, former Rep. Ron Paul is one of several officials predicting that the situation is likely far from over, warning that government agents ultimately returned to end the 1993 Waco standoff with deadly force.
"Hugo de Root at 20:21 may have the answer. The USFS is divided into 10 Regions. Region 3 consists of Arizona and New Mexico. They may have been sent into Region 4 to assist. The III patch they are wearing is most likely the patch for Region 3. Thanks guys."
The documents that reveal additional details about the gun-walking operation and gun-trafficking in El Paso, Juárez and Southern New Mexico come from the federal case against the Columbus conspirators, including Ian Garland, owner of the former Chaparral Guns in Chaparral, N.M., and filings in the federal lawsuits involving the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Special Agent Jaime Zapata and the wounding of ICE Special Agent Victor Avila Jr. of El Paso.
Which, if you think about, is as good a place as any. There'll be a get-together of some sort on Saturday the 19th where I will speak along with others. I'll give you more info when I have it. Looking forward to meeting some western Threepers.

Accusations by a drug trafficker and former longtime associate of Al Sharpton, that the preacher willingly pursued FBI sting operation drug deals, are casting doubts on the excuse that the motivation was because of “threats from the mob,” and indicate an irreconcilable disconnect from Sharpton’s advocacy for activism, a Saturday story in The New York Post reports.
Just talked with Stewart Rhodes and the Oath Keepers and the western politicians are interposing themselves between any threat and the Bundy's ranch, so if this is not some sort of disinformation deliberately planted to elicit a response, the feds will have to kill patriot leaders if they want the Bundys.
Well, that was interesting. I was just thrown out of an Ohio Carry (Central Chapter) meeting. My speech in Columbus on the 19th now apparently up in the air.
It's been a long day, folks. It was made longer by the following saga. You may recall that I was invited to speak at the Patriot's Day celebration at the Ohio Statehouse on the 19th. Since I am now up in Ohio and had yet to hear of any details or recent confirmation, I went to the library this afternoon to see if I could get ahold of the event organizers. You will note that the announcement indicates that Central Ohio Carry and Ohioans for Concealed Carry are both listed as being represented at the event. Since I could not find the email address of the fellow I originally talked to, and noting from the Ohio Carry website that the Central Ohio chapter was having a meeting tonight on the southeast side of Columbus, I determined that the easiest way to make contact was to show up at the meeting, find the fellow who had invited me and confirm some arrangements. It was an hour's drive away from where I am staying (which doesn't have Internet access, so I'm using the local library and Panera Bread's wifi) I figured, what the heck.
So down I drove, located the meeting site at a local buffet, and then came back at the appointed time. As the group filtered in there was no sign of the fellow who invited me, but the members indicated that he should be coming so I stuck around. None of them was familiar wuth my name, but that's okay, I get that all the time these days and accept it as a sign of the success of the idea (you may recall my reaction at the same thing happening in CT at last year's rally). There was some side conversation about whether or not this was to be a business meeting and it was decided by the half-dozen or so folks there that, no, "thank God," they would just have some conversation over the meal, so it was all very informal. I introduced myself and handed out some cards and listened as they talked about their plans for open carry events. I was especially interested in one that they were planning after the rally on Saturday, when they intended to march onto the campus of Ohio State and I indicated that I would be happy to come along. Like many such groups I've met across the country, they seemed sincere, intelligent and determined. It was when I went to get a refill on my hot tea (I declined to go the thirteen dollar tab for a meal, although the tea was three bucks) when everything went south.
Coming back to the table, an otherwise intelligent and sincere young man in a wheelchair was explaining to the group that "the Davidians had it coming" because "they were converting hand grenades and automatic weapons." Given that he seemed not to be old enough to even have been born in 1993 and sick of twenty years of that kind of crap from firearm-confiscating collectivists, I instantly saw red and blurted out (with what I admit was an absolute lack of tact), "That's bullshit!" He then went on to claim that the Davidians had also fired first. I said, "No they didn't. The ATF fired first. They shot the dogs as they always do." I also told the young man not to be blaming the victims. Now, I perfectly understand the reaction, but the crowd turned on me with a vengeance and indicated that I could take my objections walking and they threw me out of the meeting, such as it was. One of them (also probably in diapers when the FBI was immolating those innocents that he figured had it coming) said that I was a "crazy old douchebag," or words to that effect. I indicated that when they got ahold of the guy who had invited me to come up from Alabama to speak that he should get in touch with me and let me know if it had been a waste of time. Then I left.
So, having learned nothing that I needed to know and as ignorant as before I drove back to where I am staying. My speech, it would seem, is entirely up in the air. In truth, they had not invited me to their meeting and it was well within their rights to ask me to leave, so I really bear them no rancor. But some of them sure don't know shit from shinola about Waco.
When the Bundys and their friends went to collect the cattle and confronted the armed BLM thugs, Ammon says, the Clark County deputies did a great job of defusing the situation. The demand was given that BLM had a half hour to get out of the way, or the people were coming through. Within thirty minutes, vehicles began exiting the compound where the cattle roundup had been happening. Within an hour, all the BLM had run -- run, mind you -- to their vehicles and "unassed the AO" in a convoy that eventually amounted to over 100 vehicles. As has been reported, the crowd saluted them as they passed.
Left behind were trailers, generators, personal equipment scattered all over the ground and internal BLM documents left on the table where they had been branding the cattle. It was a great skedaddle, Ammon says. The BLM had to hire contractors to come back and clean up the mess.
I congratulated Ammon and told him that this was perhaps a pivotal moment in American history. He also agreed with me that it is impossible not to see the hand of God in all of this. I told him that it was my opinion that the empire would surely strike back, but that they would likely come at the Bundys and their supporters sideways next time. Still, it was a great victory, a pivotal moment, in the relationship between the federal government and the American people. Nothing will be quite the same after this, mostly because it has demonstrated to those whom the government would victimize that they only require someone with the guts to stand up to leviathan -- and the armed friends to back them up in the argument.
Frankly, I need a rest and will do some minimum posting today.

Wielding a sign that read, "Obama, no more Wacos", one man said: "I studied what happened at Waco and I've seen the way they burned those people out of their church. I'm not going to allow that to happen again."
excellent photos of the standoff.Mike,Spent yesterday at the "Battle of Bunkerville", what a great day! I have attached some pictures, which you are more than welcome to publish.My reflections of the day after getting a good night's sleep are that two factors are very important in securing victories over the Fed agents (or any tyrant attack dogs), NUMBERS and ARMS.One or another isn't good enough. The "Occupy" movement only had numbers and were eventually put down and disbanded. A few armed "domestic terrorists" would be put down like the Branch Davidians in Waco.Yesterday we had a thousand+, 80% armed group of patriots standing up for the Bundy's against the 30-40 armed BL:M and contractor forces, and we won. The BLM left, the Clark Co. sheriff had no option, but to stand up for the Bundy's (I am sure he didn't like that position he was forced into).Perhaps we should call this Fifth Generation warfare? The keys again are large numbers of ARMED people. They could not deploy tear gas for fear of getting shot, plus the wind was blowing back in their direction. They could do nothing but threaten us with words (which no one could understand due to bad speakers and the wind). We kept advancing with the "cavalry" in the front center and everyone else either on the sides, behind the horses or on the bridge above. The BLM hid behind their trucks and SUVs, but you could tell they wanted to leave. Finally, they said they would leave and release the cattle, if we would back up about 50 yards. The Bundy's asked the crowd to back up, and we did. Then they retreated, and two hours later the cowboys brought the cattle through the wash back towards the Bundy Ranch.I was able to give Cliven Bunday one of the copper tokens I sent to you. He was preoccupied and didn't have a chance to take a close look at it, but he thanked me for it.Here is an article from The Guardian online edition on the event. I am the one interviewed about my "Obama, no more Wacos" sign.Best wishes and hope your health issues resolve themselves,Bill from Arizona
A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.
Adding to the FAA “mystery” is a helicopter photo from The Las Vegas Review Journal showing a helicopter at the scene with numbers that some speculate have been altered, and that do not appear on the FAA registry. Combined with documentation of FBI helicopters being masked by private entity front group registrations, the situation cries for further oversight and scrutiny, including close monitoring of all aerial operations.
Still pretty fried from yesterday. . . But may I draw your attention to the photos from the I-15 bridges below. The World Turned Upside Down.
"Yet let's be content, and the times lament, you see the world turn'd upside down."
Probably won't go to the Creek today but will have breakfast with some readers and then proceed to Columbus and points north by easy stages.
But I would like to draw your attention to the photos from the I-15 bridges that I added to the post below. Observe the BLM thugs behind their SUVs and ballistic shields with weapons out and trained on the crowd in the first panoramic view. Then observe the rancher/militia counter-snipers in position, shown in the second photo. This is Ruby Ridge and Waco in reverse and in fact is proof of my long-standing contention that there will be no more free Wacos. I'm told that when the BLM pulled out, their convoy had to run a gauntlet of the crowd, who sent them on their way with appropriate hand signals and catcalls. Ignominious failure must have tasted pretty bitter to the bully boys and their bosses. All they needed was Cornwallis' fifes and drums playing "The World Turned Upside Down."

Courage is contagious, defiance is contagious, victory is contagious. The huge win in the desert at the Bundy Ranch.
It is impossible to overstate the importance of the victory won in the desert today. While the behind-the-scenes details are not clear yet, it is obvious that something unprecedented in the war on the west that has been waged by the imperial federal government has, against all odds, happened. The feds were routed -- routed. There is no other word that applies. Courage is contagious, defiance is contagious, victory is contagious. Yet the war is not over. The empire, you may be assured, WILL strike back. This will be the subject of angry words at an Obama cabinet meeting on Monday. Someone in federal government will want blood, rest assured. The feds, having lost the Madate of Heaven and demonstrated their impotence in this case, will not want to repeat it lest the peasants get the right idea -- that they are not as omnipotent as they claim to be. However, this is a perfect example of when the people lead, the leaders will follow. And believe me, the governors of those states who have adopted tyrannical laws on firearms should take note and tremble. There is a new spirit of resistance abroad in the land. The folks in Nevada were not cowed by federal guns pointed at them under the overpass. I spoke to resisters from CT, NY and MD today at the creek, and they possess this as well. Yes, if I were Cuomo, O'Malley or Malloy, I would look at what happened in the desert today and be very, very afraid.
Neither did the organizers, who were flat surprised (talked at length to the folks in the office). I circulated as best I could but that was no substitute. Toward the end of the day, I sat at the Libertarian Party table that was set up near the entrance and some of you found me there. I apologize for the misinformation. Right now I'm in the hotel I found but I don't know if I have it in me to do it tomorrow. I still would be happy to meet anyone still in the area for breakfast tomorrow. Drop me an email.
