The Siege of Bundy Ranch goes on, and so does the need for volunteers, money and supplies, especially -- at the moment -- camo netting.

As I wrote here, The Siege of Bundy Ranch goes on. So does the need for volunteers, money and supplies. I have dubbed the Three Percenters in the desert the "Virgin River Volunteers." "The Virgins" and the Oath Keepers have a particular need at the moment for camouflage netting to provide shade for the troop and operations areas as well as fighting positions. I have a feeling that there's a lot of that sort of thing out there in barns and garages left over from the 90s that is surplus to us aging old fart's needs. You might have netting but no poles and spreaders or poles and spreaders but ne netting. That's all right. If you will drop me an email if you have anything you wish to donate, I will see that it gets matched up with needs on the ground, transportation assets to move it there, etc. The Oath Keepers intends to use such assets and equipment after the Bundy operation is concluded for other such needs as they arise. No one is going to profit from your generosity except the prospective victims of federal violence and the volunteers who desperately need the shade.
In addition, we need experienced logistical veterans -- personnel, food service, communications, S-4 planners, heck, even clerks and drivers. If you will drop me an email, I will hook you up with the right Oath Keeper contacts at the Bundy Ranch Siege so you can schedule your next vacation in sunny south Nevada, a short hop from the R&R mecca of Lost Wages. (Did I make it sound artificially cheery enough? -- The important operative word in the above is "scheduled". There have been appeals to rush out with all assets, without much thought to the mundane necessities of working out vacation time from your job, permission of wives and sweethearts, and the needs of the operation for a consistent, flowing turnover of volunteers.)
There is history being made out in the Nevada desert, folks. You may recall these lines from the Bard:

 We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

Here's another reason we can't count on any politician....especially this windvane from my state. He has since recounted his statement. He also did the same thing when defending the NSA. Stupid politicians.

---- Sen. Jim Inhofe said, “You’ve got a bunch of people there trying to take the law into their own hands and they shouldn’t be doing that. And the Bureau of Land Management is not government-owned, it’s publicly owned. There’s a big difference there. I blame both sides.”

Just a thought. Has anyone considered asking for support from Army/Navy surplus stores in the Southwest and elsewhere? Food companies? Etc.

They can donate and write it off.

Where can I buy some of that "Publicly Owned" BLM stock.
What a crock.
BLM is under control of the Dept of the Interior.
BLM is just another UNCONSTITUTIONAL infringement on the Republic.
It's like your local water 'authority"....answerable to no one.

Ya, saw that from Inhofe....he should have been recalled long ago. He's one of the better Republicrats....but he's still more of a RINO than a true Constitutionalist.

While the camo netting will indeed provide some sun protection for personnel and material beneath it, understand that the FedPigs are undoubtedly using a significant amount of aerial IR as part of their surveillance operation. To the best of my knowledge, camo net will not camoflage the IR signature of personnel. I expect those involved are already well aware of that, but just in case...
