We Will Not Comply Olympia Was Bundy Ranch II

(NOTE: If you agree with this assessment, please spread it far and wide. -- Mike.)
Mark the date down in your memories -- 13 December 2014. Remember it. Savor it. The victory won in the cold, dreary Northwest on Saturday was every bit as significant a moment in the modern fight for American liberty against encroaching tyranny as the uprising in the Nevada desert back in April.
Perhaps more so. For if Bundy Ranch was a spontaneous, almost reflexive, slap in the face to the arrogant tyrants of this country, Olympia was a carefully thought out, brilliantly conceived, flawlessly executed, DELIBERATE backhand to the same ginning bunch of constitutional thieves. Olympia provides a textbook case for other states to resist their own petty dictators.
I hope that Gavin Seim and his brave band of brothers and sisters take a moment this next week to write down in detail -- from each of their individual perspectives -- an accounting of what they did and how they overcame every obstacle to pull off this singular demonstration of the power of the armed citizenry. We will need these narratives both for posterity and for immediate planning of other fights in other states..
Consider. In a little over a month, these Washingtonians formulated a plan and executed it against all all odds -- against the threats of the authorities, against the denunciations and name-calling of so-called "mainstream 2nd Amendment groups" who claim to be their allies, against the deliberate refusal of the press to publicize their efforts, against the howling lies told by Media Matters and the Southern Poverty Law Center -- they executed a plan that absolutely negated and nullified the elite's "victory" of I-594 and wiped the leering, smugly satisfied grins from the billionaire faces of Bill Gates, Paul Allen and Michael Bloomberg.
Consider. They did all this without a without a permit, without bowing and scraping to their "betters" in the bureaucracy, without being trapped in the web of arcane rules and deliberate deceit designed to control the citizenry and limit their ability to make trouble for the political bosses. And they did it in the bluest of blue states.
They did it by means of the courage in their hearts, inteeligent determination in their heads and FIREARMS IN THEIR HANDS. They thought -- and acted -- outside the box. They created a new paradigm. And at the end of it they were praised by the state police for their competence and their flawless execution of a brilliant plan.
As I said, I hope they take the opportunity to document for the rest of us how they carried off this feat of armed civil disobedience. The authorities will coming back at them with all the malice that these evil people are capable of.
They will also need to guard against the sin of pride. They need to remain humble. They need to remain vigilant. They need to be wary of all the many ways a tyranny with unlimited resources can attack them, including using their own human weaknesses against them.
But for now, they should be proud in their accomplishment. I know I am proud to have been here and helped. This hill, a very important one, has been taken. There are many more such hills ahead. Join us in this fight. There are many more battles to be won and we will need every man and every woman if liberty is to triumph and the Founders' Republic is to be saved.

The article hints of something but never really tells us what that something is... I think I get what you are trying to say but there is too much missing information...tell us what led up to this confrontatation.

Bravo! Well Done!

For sure, they will be nailed in the near future, during a traffic stop most likely, for carrying a concealed firearm without a permit (burnt as they are now). I could see kiddie porn suddenly being "found" in their possession as well.

I hope folks realize that the supposed defenders of the second amendment - the NRA specifically- are the MOST nervous and pissed off about all this. "Their" thunder has now been officially "stolen".

Our forefathers are both grinning from ear to ear and rolling in their graves at the same time. Their hearts warmed by this display but chilled at the same time by the fact that it's "news" that Citizens dare exercise their rights ...... All while "journalists" refuse to exercise theirs justly and morally.

Hats off to those who stood up.

Wish I could have been there but great to see a awesome turnout. We here in WA for the most part are freedom loving patiots, but 594 just goes to show you what money can buy, and attempt to step on freedoms.

Thank you for taking a stand. I get tremendous inspiration reading stories like these that let us know that we are not alone.

The elites and powers that be are simply not going to allow us to retain our rights. They have and are continuing to make that clear. No demonstration by the people or court of law will temper their goal of disarming and then enslaving the American people.

Their public school indoctrination programs have been extremely effective to the point that the majority of people in states such as California, Washington, New York, etc now REJECT freedom for security.

Frankly, at this point, we are going to need to fight another civil war or break up the USA if we wish to retain the freedoms guaranteed to us by the Constitution.

A one day demonstration, while certainly inspirational, is wholly inadequate. The state law enforcers are now free to pick off and swat team individuals at will.

Somehow I missed any mention of this on "main stream media". A propaganda coup that no one knows about ... Is not a victory.

This is what it takes,Citizens standing up and being counted.

Unfortunately, despite the rally, the bad law is still in effect.

Hi Mike,
Of all the "Weapons" held high, brandished, holstered by Patriots and carried slung across shoulders, there was one, probably no one thought about, but none the less powerful and lethal in its use that was well put to use at this event. That "Weapon" was "The Spoken W-O-R-D!!!!!!!" That is the "Spoken Word" of the "Straight Truth," with "NO Pulled Punches" or "deception," that "You" spoke so well!!!!! Thank you for your Words, Time and Spirit!!

All who were involved in this event have good reason to be proud, and this sort of armed civil disobedience makes a strong statement. We just need to guard against complacency. We need to ask ourselves tough questions, such as:

What's the plan if the Police State initiates force against protesters during future demonstrations like this?

What's the plan if the Police State, having allowed the mass civil disobedience to proceed unchallenged, later targets isolated individual demonstrators at their homes and workplaces?

Answers to questions like these need to be determined and generally understood BEFORE a situation occurs. Careful planning with well-known, trusted friends is essential.

Well done,Sir! Well done.

Both are a clear demonstration of how quickly groups of Armed Citizens can determinedly assemble in numbers too great for 'authorities' to arbitarily arrest.

We can only hope this ability to oppose is not lost upon putative tyrants.

Hell! You were there, Mike!

Hey, if obama can ignore legitimate law, I guess We the People can ignore the illegitimate.

Mike -- Was there supposed to be a link to a news article somewhere?

One difference was at the "Battle at Bunkerville" guns were raised and pointed by both sides, but fortunately not a shot was fired. The cattle were set free, and the tyrants retreated for now.

Indeed. Beware.

May I suggest (akin to what another noted) that participants in such a protest MUST be monitored for their continued liberty. Of course the authorities will not take on an armed & angry mob ... but they _will_ be taking pictures, noting license plates, and otherwise identifying who was there and what charges may be pressed at the convenience of the authorities. Slow, quiet, steady, off-the-radar ... beware quiet vanishings.

The Internet may connect us, making such events possible, but few notice those who disappear from the discussions. Keep tabs.

You know what really is amazing is that a couple of years ago about everyone had written you off as soon to be worm food. Much to the dismay of the enemies of the Republic (including a couple of so-called 3 Percenters) here you still are taking the fight to the enemy and filled with more fire and brimstone as you ever had.

Great stuff. God ain't done with you yet, it seems.

A little too much fear in the comments for my taste. Of course the pigs will take pictures. Take pictures right back at 'em!

For those who worry that "something" might happen next time, keep in mind that in nonviolent resistance the people count on that and consider it a failure if "something" doesn't happen. That "something" de-legitimizes the state, which is the effect that is hoped for.
