Republican lawmaker expresses sympathy with armed protesters in Oregon
Jan 6, 2016
A leading lawmaker in the US House of Representatives has defended the armed protesters occupying a federal wildlife refuge in the state of Oregon as a display of “peaceful” civil disobedience.
Representative Raúl Labrador, a Republican from Idaho, accused the media on Wednesday of being less sympathetic to the protests started by armed, anti-government conservatives who seek to free federally owned land.
“They’re trying to express their frustration. And I think civil disobedience has been something that for the most part the liberal media used to stand up for. But apparently there’s some exceptions to that,” Labrador said at the Heritage Foundation think tank in Washington, DC.

BREAKING MESSAGE FROM MARINE JON RITZHEIMER! BLM ALERT!
Published on Dec 31, 2015
Our US Federal government has subverted our constitution and we have had enough.
The occupation resembles the Bundy Ranch standoff of 2014, when the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attempted to enforce grazing laws. Bundy got the help of armed militia and triggered a standoff with federal authorities.
The family said heavily-armed federal agents had surrounded their ranch as “trespass cattle” were removed from the disputed land.
Since 1993, Cliven Bundy – the “last rancher in Clark County, Nevada” – has refused to pay fees to the federal government for the right to raise cattle on land that his family has ranched since the 1870s, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Oath Keepers (Not On Our Watch)
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial.
