The live stream just finished a few minutes ago. 

 

The FBI 'promised' to leave them alone until 8am tomorrow morning when the 4 occupiers supposedly will give them selves up and will be witnessed by Michelle Fiori and Co.

 

Sounds a huge PSYOP to me.

 

I've listened for about the last 2 and a half hours.

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy arrested by FBI in Portland

 

Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who touched off one armed showdown with federal authorities and applauded another started in Oregon by his sons, was arrested late Wednesday at Portland International Airport and faces federal charges related to the 2014 standoff at his ranch.

 

Bundy, 74, was booked into the downtown Multnomah County jail at 10:54 p.m.

He faces a conspiracy charge to interfere with a federal officer -- the same charge lodged against two of his sons, Ammon and Ryan, for their role in the Jan. 2 takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns. He also faces weapons charges.

 

The Bundy Ranch Facebook page reported Cliven Bundy was surrounded by SWAT officers and detained after his arrival from Nevada.

He was arrested at 10:10 p.m., authorities said.

 

The Bundy patriarch had traveled to Portland with plans to go on to Burns, where four occupiers had been the remaining holdouts of the refuge occupation.

Oathkeepers Media Director Investigating 68 Warrants issued for Those Who Stood at Bundy Ranch, Oregon Refuge and Mines

 

 

I listened today for a couple of hours as the last of the four who were held up at the Oregon Wildlife refuge left. It was an intense time as David Fry, after almost two hours, came out with his friends. However, behind the scenes, things are taking a very strange twist.

 

In an exclusive interview with Jason Van Tatenhove, media director for Oathkeepers, he told Freedom Outpost that there have been reports of 68 warrants against Americans who stood alongside Cliven Bundy in Nevada in 2014 and several involved in standing between the Bureau of Land Management and the Sugar Pine Mine.

 

Van Tatenhove said that Oathkeepers were in the process of seeking to confirm the number of indictments and may have that information available later on Thursday's broadcast of NorthWest Liberty News with Jim White and Tim Brown at 4pm EST.

 

"We are trying to verify this information through intelligence sources with deep contacts DHS and whatnot… there are 68 new warrants stemming back through Bundy Ranch and the other mine operations," Van Tatenhove said. "We're trying to reach out to the FBI to confirm."

 

Van Tatenhove has an interest in these warrants as he stood at Bundy Ranch in 2014 against the BLM siege with the Bundys.

In one of Judge Grasty's speaches at a town meeting he said: We have a new virus in our county and it's spreading fast...we have to do everything in our power to eradicate it.

 

Looks like the eradicating process is on the way not just in Harney County.

FBI sting to arrest 86 Americans in massive BLM cover-up

 

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, 74, was arrested late yesterday evening while exiting a plane at Portland International Airport on his way to Burns, Ore., a town located 30 miles south of the federally owned Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, the site of a months-long standoff between free-loving land owners and the U.S. government.

 

Celebrated for standing up to government land-grabs in 2014, Bundy has been charged with conspiracy to interfere with a federal officer, an allegation that reportedly stems back to his standoff with the Bureau of Land Management, which tried stripping he and his family of land-use rights they spent a century earning. The charges are identical to those filed against seven protestors (including his son Ammon Bundy) who occupied the wildlife refuge in protest of government overreach.

 

NewsTarget has received exclusive information that Bundy’s arrest, which was made using facial recognition technology and TSA goons, may not be isolated, but is in fact the first of many to come in an effort to silence those who obtained incriminating information about the BLM and its unlawful land grabs.

 

Government uses facial recognition to apprehend libertarian activists

 

While taking up occupancy of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, protestors reportedly gained access to sensitive information stored on the computers there, revealing sinister plans by the BLM to confiscate privately owned land before auctioning it off corporate interests, according a source who requested anonymity.

I hope you won't  mind if I make a few points

 

Oregon state Gov's name is BROWN

This Gov. was appointed, not elected, AND she called on Obama to take action to end the stand off at the refuge.  AS Gov. of Oregon, she seceded her authority as Gov. to the Federal Gov't.  She is the one who should have taken whatever action was necessary, but she had to call her daddy to beat the big bad Hammond family up, as she was either incapable of taking care of business, ORE, ORE, is being paid to underMINE her own state's citizens Yes, this is intended sarcasm.

 

Now why would they not have arrested Bundy, before he got on that plane, in Nevada?  Why?  They wanted him taken in Oregon, because of, read previous paragraph, to have him in a, friendly to the Fed. government, territory.  Possibly all corrupt officials that are bought and paid for. Think URANIUM!

 

OK. now this has far more sinister implications than perhaps some of us have given thought too.  Ranchers, big ranchers, lots of cattle, in other words, think FOOD.  86 more arrest warrants.  Militia, those who stood w/Bundy.  Patriots, Constitutionalists, White, Christian, Men, Women, Professionals, Foster Parents, honest, hard working older people,  think GUN control. I wondered why they quietly walked away from the Bundy situation, like they did, because they knew another situation was going to arise in the future, with that mine, now the Hammond Ranch.  

 

Did you know that because of certain provisions in the NDAA, these people, depending on the charges, or the wording of those charges, can actually be deported? Even those born and raised here. Not only that, but how do the wives, women, left alone on these huge ranches, manage to keep them afloat without their men in attendance, if even for protection only?  Easier to take the land from them without the men to protect them.  This is a plotted and planned treasonous act, by the Federal Gov't against it's own people!  What's more, to add insult to injury, those same people's taxes paid for the feds to have the ability to do this to them.

 

So far LaVoy Finicum was murdered. Ryan Bundy was shot, Shawna Fox lost her son-in-law, in a very suspicious fire, her husband had a heart attack, and she was arrested, and Victoria Sharp's family home has now been surrounded by a swat team. Plus all the arrests of regular, every day law abiding citizens, attempting to take a stand for all of our benefit, against a far over reaching fed gov't. We should consider the bigger picture, because there surely is one, but the arrest of Bundy in Oregon, shows you that they plan, long term, perhaps the patriots need to take some lessons.

Severed feet keep mysteriously washing up on the Pacific Northwest coast

 

severed feet attached to running shoes, washed up from origins unknown.

Sixteen of these detached human feet have been found since 2007 in British Columbia, Canada, and Washington state. Most of these have been right feet. All of them have worn running shoes or hiking boots. Among them: three New Balances, two Nikes and an Ozark Trail.

 

exact model of shoe had gone on the market after March 2013, indicating that it once belonged to someone who went missing between then and December.

David Rockefeller Says Conspiracy About ‘One World Order’ Is True

 

david-rockerfeller.jpg

 

He says: “Some even believe [the Rockefellers] are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterising my family and me as ‘internationalists’ conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I’m proud of it.”

The FBI confirmed it screwed up and reset the San Bernardino shooter's iCloud password

Alex Heath, Tech Insider

The FBI has shed more light on its involvement in what is shaping up to be the most controversial piece of evidence in the investigation of San Bernardino terror suspect Syed Rizwan Farook: his iCloud account password.

Hours after Farook's iPhone was recovered by law enforcement, the password to his iCloud account was reset. The reset was an attempt to gain access to his account. It also likely prevented the iPhone from doing an auto-backup, which could have yielded useful information about Farook's activity leading up to the shooting that killed 14 people and wounded 22 others.

That kicked off a round of finger-pointing by Apple executives, the FBI, and San Bernardino County officials over who reset the iCloud password. In a statement issued in the wee hours of Sunday morning (you can read it below), the FBI confirmed it was working with San Bernardino County officials when the password was reset.

Apple executives said Friday that if the FBI hadn't changed the iCloud password, it wouldn't need to create a backdoor to the iPhone.

Venezuela Burning

 

Venezuela on the brink

 

caracas.jpeg?w=519&h=350

 

The conditions are right…for a coup. Large scale political unrest, severe economic problems based upon a mismanaged socialist economy(as per the standard) and brought even closer by plunging oil values. Coupled with violence unchecked, it won’t be long before a change is forced in.

 

The socialist government was voted out not that long ago; but what replaced it? The numbers of criminal vigilantes roaming the streets is nothing new either; for over a year now they’ve had endemic street crimes revolving around dirt bikers with machetes and sub machine guns- and it looks to be ramping up further.

 

Whenever there is economic strife, coupled with a large mass of disenfranchised and unemployed youth, and a government that fails to deliver, you have a coup; and almost 100% of the time, they’re sponsored from an outside source.

 

MLCOA

Conditions will worsen for the remainder of the month; the government teeters on default. Expect a bailout from Russia soon, even if Putin takes a loss. China will likely intervene as well. Like all forms of welfare, the money won’t last long. Expect something from the BRICS nations in the economics news.

 

MDCOA

Conditions will stay on track, and the government will collapse, resulting in a new military junta, backed even more closely by Cuba. It is unknown how this will work with “normalized” Cuban relations with the Obama administration, however an overthrow of the counter-marxist elected government is likely the plan all along. This will prompt a reaction from Russia, as they have several investments in Venezuela, including oil and weapons(Izhmash has a factory in Caracas) which they cannot take a loss upon.

 

Why any of this matters

 

As I stated, it is very likely that this is a coup in the making; with the already frosty relations between Russia and the US, this has very, very deep implications prompting an almost guaranteed response. With a proxy war on two fronts already, and high activity from HM01(a Cuban Numbers Station…examples here and here), it’s worthy to note that a potential third front is opening up just to our south. It is this third area which little attention is being paid by the media(and why I’m writing about it) that you should be looking to.

 

Be informed. It matters; it’s a predictor of things to come.

Australia to bolster defenses, wants to keep good terms with both US and China

Published time: 25 Feb,2016

 

Australia’s defense spending will rise to AU$195 billion ($140 billion) in five or six years, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said, while stressing that beefing up its sea and air fleet does not mean giving up on diplomacy.
 

As tensions in China-US relations tighten in the Asia-Pacific region, Australia aims to ensure its security by increasing its defenses. The country’s military spending will rise to around $140 billion by 2021-22, according to a White paper released by the country’s Defense Ministry on Thursday.

China 'Seriously Concerned' by Australian Defense Document
  • By rod mcguirk, associated press

CANBERRA, Australia — Feb 25, 2016

 

 

Chinese officials say they are "seriously concerned" by an Australian strategic evaluation of the South China Sea and warned Australia against compromising the stability of the Asia-Pacific region.

 

Australia announced a 20-year plan Thursday to bolster its naval strength with more submarines and warships as part of a military buildup it said was needed to maintain peace in the region.

 

The strategic document, the Defense White Paper, said Australia was "particularly concerned by the unprecedented pace and scale of China's land reclamation activities" in the South China Sea.

 

While not taking sides on competing territorial claims, Australia opposed "the use of artificial structures in the South China Sea for military purposes" and the assertion of maritime rights not recognized by international law.

 

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a press conference later Thursday that China was "seriously concerned about and dissatisfied with the White Paper's negative statement on issues concerning the South China Sea and the development of China's military strength."

 

Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Wu Qian appeared to warn Australia against following the United States' lead by sailing near one of the Beijing-controlled islands in the Paracel chain.

 

"We urge the Australian side to cherish the hard-won good momentum of development in bilateral relations and don't take part in or conduct any activities that may compromise the stability of the region," he said.

 

"The military alliance between Australia and the U.S. should get rid of the Cold War mentality," he added. Chinese officials use the phrase "Cold War mentality" to refer to thinking that harks back to an era when the world was less integrated.

Asked for comment about the document, the Chinese Embassy on Friday referred The AP to the two officials' comments.

 

The document also said the United States will remain the pre-eminent global military power and will continue to be Australia's most important strategic partner over the next two decades.

 

A major conflict between the United States and China was unlikely, but friction between the two powers over the East China and South China Seas could raise tensions, it said.

"It will be important for regional stability that China provides reassurance to its neighbors by being more transparent about its defense policies," it said.

When This Boat Crew Realized What They Were Seeing, It Was Almost Too Late To Escape.

February 24, 2016

 

 

"We don’t really think about it on a daily basis, but the Earth is still changing all the time. It just happens so slowly that we can’t really perceive it. But every now and then, things speed up… a lot.

 

Recently, the crew of the Maiken was enjoying a leisurely sail through the South Pacific when they spotted a strange discoloration on the water. They moved in closer to inspect it, but by the time they realized what it was, it was too late."

Very cool, breezy. And yes, they were lucky. They certainly got some amazing photos.

FBI agents under investigation for possible misconduct in LaVoy Finicum shooting

March 8, 2016

Les Zaitz

 

 

"BEND – An FBI agent is suspected of lying about firing twice at Robert "LaVoy" Finicum and may have gotten help from four other FBI agents in covering up afterward, authorities revealed Tuesday.

 
The bullets didn't hit Finicum and didn't contribute to his death, but now all five unnamed agents, part of an elite national unit, are under criminal investigation by the U.S. Justice Department. Inspector General Michael Horowitz is leading the independent inquiry.
 
The remarkable disclosure came as a team of local investigators released findings that two state troopers shot Finicum three times in the back during the chaotic scene at a police roadblock Jan. 26. One bullet pierced his heart, an autopsy showed.
 
A prosecutor ruled the fatal shooting was legally justified, saying state law allows use of deadly force when officers believe a person is about to seriously injure or kill someone. Finicum kept moving his hands toward a pocket that contained a loaded handgun. Although he was shot from behind, Finicum had a trooper in front of him armed with a Taser who was thought to be in danger."

US Media Bury the Three-Year Long Grudge Held by the Feds against Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer

022016_SEPost.png
In the latest development involving the Burns-OR Standoff case, the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training is asking the state Department of Justice to investigate Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer after receiving numerous complaints from the public and others, including dispatchers and the John Day police chief. The Department has released eight separate complaints, including ones from a 911 manager and the John Day police chief, alleging misconduct by Palmer, and raising alarm concerning Palmer's association with leaders of the refuge occupation.

The Department of Justice has been asked to investigate the case, and the licensing agency has warned Palmer that if violations of police standards are found, he could face revocation of his police certification.

According to a one-sided article published by Oregon Live on Thursday, February 18, Palmer has drawn criticism for his association with the armed militants who took over the wildlife refuge and his meeting with some of the occupation leaders:

"I have a great public safety concern when the Grant County sheriff is allowed to openly meet with and be part of this group of lawbreakers," said John Day Police Chief Richard Gray in his complaint.

According to Valerie Luttrell, emergency communications manager for John Day 911:

“Glenn Palmer is viewed as a security leak, not only by local law enforcement staff but by the Oregon State Police and FBI."

The article goes on to list verbatim quotes from anonymous complainants- and does not indicate whether the complainants are associated with or employed by BLM or other interested parties.

The most interesting aspect of the Oregon Live article is what has been ‘intentionally’ left unsaid, unexplained, and plainly omitted. Nowhere in the article is there any mentioning of Sheriff Palmer’s highly public profile since 2013, his history of constitutional activism, or of his being a prime target of a never-solved bizarre bio-terror case.

I would like to emphasize intentionally, since just a simple internet query under the news category on Sheriff Glenn Palmer brings up dozens of results that range from front page headlines to popular syndicated radio shows dating back to 2013. In fact, since Oregon Live has been the leading mainstream media outlet providing coverage on cases involving Sheriff Palmer, the query did not need to extend outside the publication’s own archives!

Sheriff Palmer was one of the first and most publicized sheriffs across the nation who stood up to gun control measures proposed by the Obama administration in 2013. And in Oregon Palmer became the de facto leader and spokesperson for a host of sheriffs who had said that they would not comply with any excessive and unconstitutional gun regulation proposal:

In a letter to Vice President Joe Biden, Grant County Sheriff, Glenn Palmer writes:
"I too, have taken the Oath of Office to defend and uphold the Constitution for the State of Oregon as well as the Constitution of the United States. I take my duty and responsibility seriously. The citizens of Grant County have entrusted and empowered me to represent them. We have a history with customs and cultures that will support and defend the Second Amendment as well as the Oregon Constitution. The Oath that I swore to is to support and defend our constitutions from enemies, both foreign and domestic. I will not tolerate nor will I permit any federal incursion within the exterior boundaries of Grant County, Oregon, where any type of gun control legislation aimed at disarming law abiding citizens is the goal or objective.”

hmmm, reading this story makes me go hmmm.  cyber criminals indeed  "The Federal Reserve Bank of New York said on Tuesday that it followed normal procedures in transmitting funds that Bangladesh's central bank has said were stolen by cyber criminals from its Fed account."  

 

The Fed Reserve Bank transmitted funds stolen FROM  Bangladesh's Fed account.   So IF there was NO alert that those funds were being taken, I might suspect the Fed itself.  Who better would know how to accomplish this kind of theft without it raising alarms, than someone who worked internally? The sender had to have access to Bangladesh's Federal Reserve Acct number, and there had to be a recipient on the other end, a numbered bank account, in a registered bank.  There is a bit of paperwork involved in sending a swift, if you go into a bank yourself to do so, and no one at the Fed Reserve thought to question the transaction, before actually transferring the funds? Wonder how much "they" got away with?   Bank robbery of a different kind, no guns or getaway cars needed.

Internet domain handoff takes major step forward

Mario Trujillo

March 10, 2016

 

 

"A major step was taken Thursday in the U.S. government's plan to hand off oversight of the Internet domain name system. 

 
A nonprofit international group approved a plan and forwarded it to the Obama administration Thursday for review and approval.
 
The group, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), has historically been contracted out to manage the behind-the-scenes workings of the Internet that pair up numerical IP addresses with their familiar Web addresses. 
A few years ago, the group was tasked with transitioning fully from U.S. government oversight to an international multistakeholder model. 
 
The Commerce Department will have to sign off on the transition plan before it is allowed to go forward. But the Obama administration and Congress have been "watching closely," said Steve Crocker, who leads ICANN's board of directors. 
 
"This proposal does not come as a surprise that requires a fresh start or a cold start and we fully expect that this will be viewed as 100 percent consistent with the criteria that was set out in advance and that which has been tracked all the way throughout the process," Crocker said."

I tell you, this is all in preparation for the TPP takeover of the internet, mark my words.

"UPDATE: The Lebanese army said two missiles found on a passenger flight from Lebanon to Serbia and bound for Portland were used for training and did not contain any explosives.

 
BELGRADE, Serbia — Serbia's authorities are investigating reports that a cargo package bound for Portland contained two missiles with explosive warheads on a passenger flight from Lebanon.
 
 
N1 television said the package with two guided armor-piercing missiles was discovered Saturday by a sniffer dog after an Air Serbia flight from Beirut landed at a Belgrade airport.
 
Serbian media say documents listed the final destination for the AGM-114 Hellfire missiles as Portland. The American-made projectiles can be fired from air, sea or ground platforms against multiple targets."

Edit: to note I posted this because this shut down a major state border crossing in the US which has NEVER happened before at this junction (I-10 / Sabine River.) This is the most flooding the region has experienced since 2005 and nothing close recorded in previous century.  Climate change is real!

Iain Duncan Smith Resigns Over Disability Cuts

March 18, 2016

 

 

"The Work and Pensions Secretary steps down over Treasury pressure to find further savings, dubbing them "a compromise too far".

 

 

"Iain Duncan Smith has quit the Cabinet as he branded proposed cuts to disability benefits in George Osborne's Budget as indefensible.

 
Announcing his resignation in a letter, the Work and Pensions Secretary complained of pressure to "salami slice" welfare and an unwillingness to spread the burden of spending cuts.
 
"I have for some time and rather reluctantly come to believe that the latest changes to benefits to the disabled and the context in which they've been made are, a compromise too far," he wrote.
 
"While they are defensible in narrow terms, given the continuing deficit, they are not defensible in the way they were placed within a Budget that benefits higher earning taxpayers.

"They should have instead been part of a wider process to engage others in finding the best way to better focus resources on those most in need.
 
"I am unable to watch passively whilst certain policies are enacted in order to meet the fiscal self-imposed restraints that I believe are more and more perceived as distinctly political rather than in the national economic interest."
 
Mr Duncan Smith had been battling to head off a growing Tory rebellion in a Commons vote on the Budget next week.
 
After protests at proposed cuts in benefits to disabled people worth £4.4bn, Mr Duncan Smith wrote to Conservative MPs stressing that consultation with disability groups will continue."

Just to add to breezy's post above...

This is a vague post, just to let you know, because I will omit all links etc, for some I can't even provide because it's private correspondences.

 

Aussie peeps with disabilities are suffering a lot, too, with quite low pays, not only usual pensioners.

I think a study done at Uni in Victoria came back stating no one is getting enough pay to cover the cost in Disability Pension range.

Recently Oz gov reduced payments for all sectors of social security.

 

I'm so friggin sick that I applied to Disability Support Pension in 2015.

They rejected me twice, after THEY RECOGNISED I GOT SEVERAL DISABILITIES, BY THEMSELVES.

But the assessment paper came back stating that they(the gov) stated that exactly the same work which actually caused one of my disability, was the job I should be picking up again. and saying I can still work more than 15 hours/week.

I reported that to all specialists and other doctors...they all rolled their eyes because they had to agree with me that what the assessor assessed was a totally useless assessment.

 

OK, so I realised no point in asking for help.

That goes to our Pain Clinic, too. We got friggin 3 year waiting list.

 

WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG!!!!!!!!!!

This is so wrong.

 

So I came up with a brand new idea for national scheme to help all fell in the gray zone in Oz.

I don't have any say in Oz re:political stuff due to my status with visa, so I wanted to pass the idea to someone who can get it up and running it as the citizen of Oz.

The scheme is to mobilise ALL peeps with disabilities and ones who fell into the gray zones unable to receive any justifiable payments from the government and by making it as a national scheme and create back up from the nation, but to be able to sustain all of us by all of us working the way we want, not by what the government tells us what to do.

Not going into the detail of it, but anyhow I expressed the scheme idea to Hon. K.Vincent, who is in wheelchair in South Australia.

 

...Her secretary got back admitting that the idea was certainly of national scheme level...then not hearing ANYTHING further.

 

...The thing is that people need help NOW, not later.

 

I'm totally frustrated as not only me, but there are heck a lot of us suffering.

Not only in Oz, but everywhere.

 

It's obviously the systems installed as countries are only there to kill us, after it became way too tangled over the PROFIT OF SOMEONE ELSE, not us, the Humans.

It's the time to renew our Earth so we all can contribute to the future of Humanity, safely.

 

Finally, I just came across to this article...I've been certainly feeling it, so I share it with you. Skip the Christian views, still you will see it clearly. 

I understand we need to be careful in how to, but we cannot just do nothing.

We know too much too far.
