A perfect storm — Armed BLM agents and militia patrol mine
By Lexi Morgan
JOSEPHINE COUNTY, Ore. (INTELLIHUB) — Another Bundy Ranch standoff-type situation is currently brewing, but this time the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) isn’t threatening a cattle ranch but rather a group of Sugar Pine miners and others who fear their rights will not be justly upheld. In fact the dispute is actually over “surface rights” that were “grandfathered” to the miners over 100 years ago, logged on 1950’s and 1960’s documents as reported by Kasey Kershner, KDRV.
After the Bundy Ranch/BLM Standoff set precedence in the national police state arena, demonstrating the BLM’s insanity and lust for power, local miners have decided to call upon “Oath Keepers” and possibly even members of the militia for protection after fearing a future loss of the land, which they have successfully mined for over one-hundred years, to the ever-corrupt BLM.
Now armed BLM agents and Oath Keepers have set up a staging area to counter the miners operations in a current legal battle which may take “weeks” to resolve, Kershner said.
Although the BLM maintains they currently have no desire to step in, their readiness speaks volumes, mirroring the Bundy Ranch escalation and build-up.
Their call to action
On April 12th Arizona State Militia (ASM) and others were in route to Oregon on behalf of the miners safety.
“We got security teams on their way” and “heavy-hitters”, Blane Cooper with ASM said.
“We are standing off against the BLM”.
“We are geared up and ready to go, this is not for the faint-hearted. […] Militia is on the ground. […] the terrain is rough.”
