The Military Support the 3 Percenters
12 Army Reservists humvees rolled up on my unit today out in East-Central Georgia.
Luck would have it that we were training where they wanted to train. All was good.
They extend their best out to the folks in Oregon. I told the CO for the unit that
we would be done in just a bit so the Army waited, standing around their humvees.
When we finished, The First Lieutenant and a local sheriff (Sgt) saluted me as i
walked back to my vehicle. I advised them that we were just Patriots and a salute
was not necessary since i was not U.S. Military but he reminded me that it is the
highest "courtesy" that can be shown by Military to a Militia Officer. I commended
him on his knowledge ( i read that somewhere). The LT then instructed me to write to
the Patriots in Oregon and forward that "salute" to show their support. I was able
to speak for just a moment with those troops that did not even know what "Militia"
was in the first place. I did my best. But those troops and Commanding officer and
the Sheriff only saluted me to pay respect to the 3%ers. I personally salute all
patriots. Hopefully this will find someone in Oregon, if not then at least tell them
some country boys and some Army troops know about Oregon and are rooting for ya. God
Bless America and lets hold on tight because that will never happen again and i am
pissing Red,White and blue right now. Semper Fi........... Jason Blomgren, Stacey

Oregon militant leader Ammon Bundy was taken into custody by federal officials on Tuesday night, the Oregonian reported.
Bundy’s capture was first reported by one of his supporters, Pete Santilli, on a YouTube broadcast. KATU-TV confirmed Bundy’s arrest, adding that three other people were taken into custody.
Santilli also stated that two people were shot during the encounter that led to Bundy’s arrest. Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) confirmed that Harney District Hospital in Burns, near the wildlife reserve that Bundy’s group seized, is on lockdown and that there was a “shooting incident.”

Update, 10:00 p.m. EST: The Oregonian reported that Payne, along with Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan, were arrested, as were Joe “Captain O” O’Shaughnessy, a member of the Oath Keepers militia group, and Brian Cavalier, a “bodyguard” for the Bundys. They were all charged with conspiracy to impede a federal officer by force, a federal felony. One militant was reportedly killed during a shootout with authorities, but their name has not been released.
Update, 10:13 p.m. EST: The FBI and Oregon state police said in a statement that another group member, Shawna Cox, was arrested.

Ammon Bundy, other protesters arrested in Oregon; LaVoy Finicum killed

"It's OK. I've lived a good life," LaVoy Finicum told CNN earlier this month
Protesters took over a federal wildlife refuge January 2, denouncing federal land policies
8 people were arrested Tuesday, including protest leader Ammon Bundy
(CNN)The weeks-long armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon suffered two major blows when protest leader Ammon Bundy was arrested and another key figure was killed.
Bundy and several fellow occupiers were pulled over Tuesday on Highway 395, a law enforcement official said. According to The Oregonian, they were headed to the city of John Day, where they planned to participate in a community meeting set up by local residents.
Everyone obeyed orders to surrender except two people: LaVoy Finicum and Bundy's brother, Ryan Bundy, the official told CNN.
Shots were fired, but it's unclear who fired first, the source said. Ryan Bundy was wounded, and Finicum died.
With their leader Ammon Bundy in police custody and their spokesman, Finicum, dead, it's unclear if the remaining occupiers will dig in their heels at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which they have occupied for 26 days -- or if their resolve will wane.
What happened and what happens next?
Occupiers: 'A patriot has fallen'
Finicum was one of the most outspoken occupiers who took over the refuge near Burns on January 2 to protest federal land policies.
Earlier this month, the father of 11 told CNN he doesn't want to die -- but would never go behind bars.
"I'm just not going to prison," Finicum said. "Look at the stars. There's no way I'm going to sit in a concrete cell where I can't see the stars and roll out my bedroll on the ground. That's just not going to happen. I want to be able to get up in the morning and throw my saddle on my horse and go check on my cows. It's OK. I've lived a good life. God's been gracious to me."
LaVoy Finicum took down what he claimed to be a government spy camera in Oregon on January 15.
News of Finicum's death quickly reached the protesters still holed up at the refuge.
"It appears that America was fired upon by our government," the occupiers said on the Bundy Ranch Facebook page. "One of liberty's finest patriots is fallen. He will not go silent into eternity."
The occupiers also claimed Finicum had his hands in the air when he was shot.
Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore said Ammon Bundy called his wife, Lisa Bundy, from the back of a police car on Tuesday night and said Finicum was cooperating with police when he was shot, according to The Oregonian.
Fiore has been a vocal supporter of the Bundy family.
Fiore's account couldn't be independently corroborated. A representative from the Joint Information Command Center in Harney County said authorities had no comment on the claim that Finicum had his hands up. He said more information would be released Wednesday.
Bundy's father, controversial Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, said Finicum died supporting his beliefs.
"He was a wonderful man," he told CNN affiliate KTNV. "He was a student of the Constitution. He was interested in freedom, and I think he gave his life where he felt it was best."
Cliven and Ammon Bundy: A family's history of fighting the federal government
In all, police arrested eight people Tuesday linked to the wildlife refuge takeover: five in the traffic stop on Highway 395; two others in Burns; and one in Arizona.
The five arrested at the traffic stop were Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox and Ryan Waylen Payne.
The two arrested in Burns were Joseph Donald O'Shaughnessy and Peter Santilli.
And protester Jon Ritzheimer, who previously made headlines for leading an anti-Islam protest in Arizona, turned himself in to police in Peoria, Arizona, FBI spokesman Kurt Remus said.
All eight people arrested face a federal felony charge of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation or threats, the FBI and Oregon State Police said.
Ammon Bundy and others started out protesting the sentencing of Dwight Hammond and his son Steven, ranchers who were convicted of arson on federal lands in Oregon.
But a January 2 march supporting the Hammonds led to the armed occupation of the refuge, with protesters decrying what they call government overreach when it comes to federal lands.
Since then, the occupiers have turned the refuge into their own -- changing the sign in the front and tearing down a fence they claimed harmed the livelihood of a rancher. But that rancher told The Oregonian he didn't ask the occupiers to tear down the public fence -- in fact, he was upset by it.
Ammon Bundy has said that while the armed protesters don't want violence, they would be ready to defend themselves if necessary.
But with the leader arrested, it's not clear what will happen next.
On Tuesday night, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown stressed that the occupation at the refuge was not over.
"The situation in Harney County continues to be the subject of a federal investigation that is in progress," she said. "My highest priority is the safety of all Oregonians and their communities. I ask for patience as officials continue pursuit of a swift and peaceful resolution."

One person is dead and another sustained non-life threatening injuries following a law enforcement raid on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge building where a standoff had been underway throughout the month of January.
The FBI and the Oregon State Police began an “enforcement action” to bring a number of people into custody who were associated with the armed standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. One of the people who was sought in the probable cause action was killed. Another person was injured and transported to an area hospital where he was later arrested, according to an FBI press release obtained by Breitbart Texas.
The identity of the deceased suspect has not yet been released.
The arrested individuals include:

• Ryan C. Bundy, age 43, of Bunkerville, Nevada
• Brian Cavalier, age 44, of Bunkerville, Nevada
• Shawna Cox, age 59, Kanab, Utah
• Ryan Waylen Payne, age 32, of Anaconda, Montana
These arrests occured along Highway 395. One other person was arrested in a separate action taken by the Oregon State Police. They arrested Joseph Donald O’Shaughnessy, age 45, Cottonwood, Arizona, approximately an hour later.
The arrested individuals are expected to face charges of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation, or threats, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 372, the FBI statement revealed.
Peter Santilli, age 50, of Cincinnati, Ohio, was also arrested at another location. He faces the same charges and was arrested without incident.
