Ammon Bundy to Oregon Wildlife Refuge Occupiers: “It’s Time to Go Home.”

Since the FBI won’t reveal the details of exactly how it came to be that Lavoy Filicum was shot and killed as he stepped out of his vehicle yesterday afternoon, I feel it’s safe to assume that it was yet another instance when a brutish heavy-handed approach to law enforcement chosen by the FBI led to a moment of “shoot first, and think about it later.” This is happening too frequently in our country. It is further undermining the trust of everyday Americans in their government and federal law enforcement agencies. A full investigation into the needless death of Lavoy Filicum needs to be opened immediately. That should go without saying.

If you see the news story quietly disappear from national broadcasts as the month ends, you will know that the script is going out to “officially minimize” news coverage of Lavoy’s death, something which is done routinely at the national news network level when the upper echelon elites strongly desire that a news story or reporting on an event “just go away.” They will do all they can to make it go away. It’s the responsibility of top tier alternative news media outlets to make sure that does not happen, and that justice is served for the murder of Lavoy Filicum. Keep reporting people.

Our law enforcement agencies at the federal level are both spiritually and legally liable for the shooting death of Lavoy Filicum. Their souls know this. One is tempted to wonder whether or not the FBI shot and killed Filicum as both a dreadful moment of dark social engineering, and a ‘psychological / crowd control warning shot sent over the bow’ – meant to say in effect to the other occupying protesters, “Go home, or this will happen to you.”

The very next day, Ammon Bundy changed his tune, after the tragic, heartbreaking and unneeded death of his friend and group spokesman, Lavoy Filicum.  Cited:

“I’m asking the federal government to allow the people at the refuge to go home without being prosecuted,” Bundy said in a statement read by his lawyer, Mike Arnold, outside court. “To those at the refuge, I love you. Let us take this fight from here. Please stand down. Please stand down. Go home and hug your families.”

In a federal indictment unsealed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland, the FBI said Bundy intended for the refuge — which he and his followers occupied on Jan. 2 — to become a permanent headquarters for anti-government “patriots from all over the country.”

According to the FBI, Bundy says in a video: “We’re planning on staying here for several years.”

So, is this true? Did the occupiers of the wildlife refuge intend to create an anti-government movement stretching over years, and use the compound as their headquarters? Those are quite serious allegations of sedition. I don’t have the answers, and until yesterday, I will admit I hadn’t followed this story too closely. But I am looking into it now, and will report to my readers what I find.

Here’s what Ammon said today:

Christian Oathkeeper LaVoy Finicum Shot Dead During Arrest of Ammon Bundy & Seven Others

Christian patriot and Oathkeeper Lavoy Finicum was killed last night in a confrontation with federal officials during the arrest of Ammon Bundy and others. Finicum was Cliven Bundy’s neighbor.

The cruel and unnecessary events of 1.26.2016 which resulted in the shooting death of Christian patriot and Oathkeeper Lavoy Filicum are tragic. The confrontation and arrests took place yesterday about 4:30 pm pacific time at a traffic stop along highway 395. That’s when Lavoy was shot and killed and another person was also wounded.  For whatever contrived or mysterious reasons, mainstream media outlets waited until late last night to report the story, and did not break the news on evening newscasts, which they could have. I found it posted at 3am and re-posted it right away. This horrible shooting event need not have happened. I am heartbroken to learn of Lavoy Filicum’s death. I am praying for his family and send out sincere condolences. I pray that Lavoy’s soul will find peace in Christ in Heaven. – Screenshots blog author

BREAKING overnight:

JOHN DAY, Ore. — Ammon Bundy, the leader of an armed seizure of a federal wildlife refuge in rural eastern Oregon, was arrested and one person was killed Tuesday afternoon in a traffic stop in rural Oregon, the F.B.I. and the Oregon State Police said.

Seven other people, including Mr. Bundy’s brother Ryan Bundy, were arrested, the authorities said. Another person was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The authorities did not identify the man who was killed, but a member of the Nevada State Assembly, Michele Fiore, who has been a supporter of the Bundy family, said on Twitter that it was LaVoy Finicum. Mr. Finicum had become a de facto spokesman for the occupiers.

The confrontation came after more than three weeks of growing tension and anxiety that put the tiny community of Burns — about a five-hour drive from Portland — into an international debate about homegrown right-wing militias, public lands and constitutional rights. Mr. Bundy, 40, and a group of his followers, adopting the name Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, about 30 miles southeast of Burns, in Harney County, on Jan. 2.
