...biggest financial fraud in the history of the United States... and Oathkeepers

The Real Story Behind the Hammond Ranch Affair

bundy confrontation
America, thanks to the crisis at the Hammond Ranch and the stand-off at the seized Federal building in Burns, Oregon, we have a real opportunity to expose a major fraud being perpetrated against the American people and our collective futures. The globalists have left the door open to being exposed for who and what they are to the American people as a whole.
The Hammond Affair is critically important.We need to defend our property rights.  However, the abuse of the Hammond family is smokescreen for what is really at stake. We desperately need to keep our eye on the ball.

Summary of the Hammond Ranch Affair

How did we get to the point where we could see a major armed conflict between members of the Patriot community and the forces of the federal government?

The Original Situation

hammond ranchThe Hammond family conducted a few controlled burns on their land which spread to Federal land. The father-son duo were eventually prosecuted under statutes reserved for terrorists. This was a huge miscarriage of justice. I understand fining the two for their perceived recklessness, might have been appropriate, however, the Hammond family are NOT terrorists. Neither man deserved prison time. The elder Hammond is 73 years old and I fail to see the value in jailing a man in this set of circumstances.
As important as this issue is with regard to land rights in the West and a gross example of prosecutorial abuse of the Hammonds, there is much more to this case.

The Private Theft of Public Assets

Paralleling the current crisis is the case of the misuse and theft of the people’s assets. In many BLM lands, involving private ranchers, minerals are being taken out of the mines. I have documented this on several instances on The Common Sense Show.

There is a conspiracy being perpetrated against the American people with regard to the true nature of America’s financial situation. To most people, America appears to be on her last economic legs and the future looks hopeless. On the other hand, America has never been wealthier. However, the wealth has been horded and hidden from the American people.

Yesterday, I exposed, once again, the fact that minerals are being taken from mines such as the one on theHammond Ranch and what was attempted at the Bundy Ranch. This is happening all over the country. In yesterday’s article I noted the New York Times article which exposed the facts related to this subject.
The prosecution of Hammond family is designed to get them off of their land through breaking them financially by creating expensive legal bills and federal fines. Once the Hammonds are gone, the globalists get to have their way with the lands resources.

The Abuse of the Hammonds Began with the Bundy Ranch Affair: All Ranchers Are At Risk

bundyIt has been widely reported, the Chinese paid $4.5 billion dollars to build a solar plant on the Bundy property. The Clark County (NV) Commissioners are on the hook for that money. This is why one of their minions threatened to send anyone traveling to the aid of Bundy home in a body bag. There is absolutely no way that the Bundy Affair is over.
Nearly all people who reported on this issue see it as a one-time resource grab involving Senator Harry Reid, his sons, the Clark County Commissioners and the Chinese government. The people reporting this are correct. However, this goes much, much further. Unfortunately, I have the experience to recognize this for what this is. Also, I have come across a Bureau of Land Management Policy Manual which spells out what is happening to Bundy and Hammond families and why. T t those who, yesterday, said you could not believe this, read the manual. The government in their own words, is telling you what they are doing!
The central bankers and the corporate controlled media are attempting to make it appear as America is dead broke, through the manipulation of the fiat currency, with no hope of recovery. The central bankers, through the government, have indeed hijacked and are hording and hiding substantial assets as they are planning to take the surface economy down as early as this fall/winter. The globalist strategy consists of convincing the people, in advance of the collapse, that there is no hope of economic recovery. Under this scenario, the perpetrators of the collapse will meet with less direct resistance, both in the collapse phase and in the recovery phase in which we will all witness the establishment of a world government and a one world economic system.
Which side is correct? Are we broke or do we have substantial hidden assets? Both sides are correct. The visible economy, which is obvious to all (e.g. the health of the fiat currency, the unemployment rate, national GDP relative to the planet’s GDP), clearly indicates that a collapse is imminent. However, there is also substantial wealth that is being horded and stolen on behalf of the banks and corporations by their governmental partners, which could make a significant difference in the health of our economy. The wealth is substantial and has successfully been hidden from most Americans.
The federal government, through its BLM minions is absconding with the people’s assets. On the Bundy Ranch, they were attempting to misappropriate the land and convert it to Chinese use in order for the Chinese to be able to plunder the wealth of the land. In other ranches, the BLM is overseeing the unauthorized removal of the people’s assets from public land. In yesterday’s article, some people did not appreciate my linkage with Clinton’s selling of Uranium to Russia through her Canadian partners, but the documentation from multiple sources including the New York Times was undeniable. And where is Clinton getting the Uranium? My sources are adamant that she is obtaining the uranium from BLM land and from places like the Hammond and Bundy ranches. All the documentation regarding these assertions are published in yesterday’s article. I would suggest that people click on the links and follow the data to its logical conclusion.
Both the Bundy and Hammond Affair, have provided the Independent Media with an opportunity to expose the biggest financial fraud in the history of the United States. Just how much money are we talking about? Yes, the Hammond Affair is critically important and I stand in support of the Hammond family as I did with the Bundy family. However, this issue is longer lasting and impacts more people.

America Is Not Broke

America is not broke, not even close. The United States of America is awash in wealth, cash, proprietary assets and an unimaginable amount of mineral wealth. What belongs to the people has been transferred, in the greatest theft in world history, from the workers and consumers to the banks and the portfolios of the criminal elite gangsters which control the politicians with insider-trading and outright bribes.
Today just 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all Americans combined. Despite this grim statistic which reveals the wealth imbalance in this country, our nation has never been wealthier. Further, America is nowhere close to being broke, followed by an analysis on why the global elite are telling the public that we are broke beyond repair.

Underground Wealth

Americans are lamenting that our budget deficit is approaching $19 trillion dollars. Our national debt and deficit is a drop in the bucket compared to the assets that our government controls.
Far beneath the ground, the federal government owns the rights to mineral and energy leases, from which they receive royalties, rents, and bonus payment, states the Institute for Energy Research, an industry groupAccording to their estimates, government states that the assets are worth $128 trillion. That’s almost eight times the national debt.
empty oil“These resources could be leased to third parties and could subsequently earn the state and national government  huge royalties, rents, and bonus payments that estimates could total almost $150 billion over 10 years, just for the oil and gas leases alone.”  Then why isn’t this being done? Simple, ask yourself who would lose money if this were to come to fruition? The oil companies, the bankers, and common crooks like Hillary Clinton, that’s who!
Further, the unleashing of these assets would reduce the costs of energy for consumers and businesses.  Now, the owners of the utilities, the same people who are the owners of the oil companies, could not permit that. The utilities have invested billions toward the installation of smart meters and a new infrastructure  smart grid, in which they control all energy pricing.
Another factor that comes into play on why these assets are not being unleashed is because plentiful, reliable and cheap energy supplies would greatly accelerate economic growth and jump start the economy out of the doldrums. But when the globalists’ goal is the creation of a one world economic system controlled by a tyrannical one world government, the old government and economy must be brought down and this economic boon to the economy cannot be allowed to transpire. Therefore, the government acts as a procurement agent for the globalists, who will eventually unleash these assets to themselves, after the collapse of the dollar.
In the present moment, crooks like Clinton are helping herself to many of these assets for her own personal gain.
Still not convinced that the BLM is allowing private individuals to steal public assets, and abuse local farmers? Try this on for size. Once gain, we return to the Bundy Ranch.

Solar Energy Zones

I have discovered the existence of a BLM document which introduces America to a new Agenda 21 land designation and it is called a “Solar Energy Zone”. The smoking gun BLM document is entitled:

Regional Mitigation Strategy for the

Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone

Technical Note 444

Produced by:

Bureau of Land Management

March 2014

(see attached PDF)

The BLM produced document carefully spells out all of the Agenda 21 precautions to protect the environment and indigenous wildlife in these newly created Solar Energy Zones. The document specifically mentions the tortoise and its need to be protected, which is at issue in the Bundy case. Every form of species is protected within these Solar Energy Zones except for humans and nothing is mentioned about how land will be acquired through the eminent domain process.
The document makes it clear that land can be acquired to protect local species which could be threatened. This is how the federal government is getting around declaring eminent domain and paying people fair market value for their land, prior to stealing it.

Reid, Clark County Commissioners, the Chinese and Cronyism

“The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations”.
Most people view the recent events directed at Bundy to be a case of political and economic cronyism. There is certainly that element. However, this is much bigger than the corrupt Harry Reid and his sons.


There are none so blind that will not see. The documentation the ultimate issue in the Hammond Ranch Affair involves the plundering of the people’s assets, is so well documented and undeniable. The Independent Media needs to support the Hammond family. However, we desperately need to bootstrap the issue to show the country how we are being led down the primrose path under very false pretenses. 
OKAY, KITTENS ALL... Here's the perspective of the Oathkeepers about Ammon Bundy, etc. 
URGENT Warning on OR Standoff: Military Special OP Assets Have Been Assigned for Standoff. Keep Women and Children Out of There
 by Stewart Rhodes 
January 5, 2016
Oath Keepers has received very credible information from an active duty source within the special operations community that at least one SOD-X (Reserve/National Guard Special Operations Detachment, see this, this, and this) unit under the command of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has been tasked for this standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Reserve and moved to the area.   That source contacted one of our long-time members who is a retired Special Forces 1st Sgt (who has known the source for over twenty years).

Now, of course, just because such a unit has been sent to the area for possible action does not mean it will be used.  It may not (so please don’t accuse us of making that claim).  But we DO NOT trust the Obama Administration to do this right, which would be to handle this situation like the Montana Freeman standoff rather than like the Waco standoff.   Anyone who thinks that Obama wouldn’t dare drop the hammer on Ammon and his men (whether by using a military commando unit, or the infamous FBI HRT, which was present at both Ruby Ridge and Waco), is a fool.   As was reported in the Washington Times after the Bundy Ranch standoff ended, the Obama Administration did consider the use of military force during that standoff.  Fortunately, they decided against it, but that doesn’t mean cooler heads will prevail this time around.   And  once again, leftists are frothing at the mouth and demanding blood.  For example, Montel Williams says he is “Totally fine with a massive use of deadly force in Oregon to take out Ammon Bundy” and also said “I’m calling on Govt to end terrorist siege perpetrated by a bunch of hillbilly American Taliban.”

The U.S. government has used military rules of engagement and overwhelming force twice in recent history, with horrific results, and we don’t put anything past this Administration.    At Ruby Ridge, the result was a dead fifteen year old boy, shot in the back by U.S. Marshalls, and a dead mother (shot in the face by an FBI HRT sniper while holding her baby).  At Waco the result was scores of dead women and children, during a military assault using armored vehicles (with Delta Force present and involved, and with local fire-fighters intentionally kept away while the Dividians burned).  So please don’t try to say we are crazy for thinking it may be done again here.  We do hope “the adults in the room” in the Administration and in the federal LEO and military community will keep that from happening, but hope is not an operational plan.  We don’t trust them, and you shouldn’t either, so:

Keep women and children off the friggin X.

Why do we feel the need to say this?  Because we have  seen news footage showing children present at the Malheur Wildlife Reserve over the past few days.  Apparently they were brought there by their parents while they visited with Ammon and crew.    We are told that they are not staying there overnight, but even bringing them for a visit is a mistake.  We also know that several women are staying there 24/7 (apparently including the wife of Blaine Cooper).   We do not need to have the risk of dead women and children in this incident.  It is unconscionable and immoral for anyone to place non-combatant women and children at risk of being in the middle of a firefight or dynamic raid on the armed men occupying that federal wildlife refuge.

This is not a “free speech” barbecue at Bundy Ranch with live music by Jordan Page.   This is a whole different animal.   There should be no women and children there at all.  This is not a family event.  This is an armed occupation of a government building and the only people staying there should be the armed men who are willing to die there with Ammon Bundy and his brothers and a couple of embedded reporters.   If adults want to visit them and put themselves at risk, that is their choice, but don’t bring children.   If a dozen men die in a shootout, that is one thing, but if children die, there will be a civil war.

Oath Keepers

NOTE and UPDATE as of 4am, Wed., Jan 6:   We are already getting flack for even saying this, with people accusing us of spreading “false intel” or rumors, and of course, wild-eyed accusations of us somehow being “traitors” because we don’t want to see women and children put at risk.   It is really a no-brainer that this Administration would at least stage both military and Federal law enforcement Special Response Teams for possible use in this situation.  That is hardly an out-there conspiracy theory. And it should be a no-brainer and common sense to keep women and children clear of such an armed occupation of a federal facility, but apparently it is not, and so we felt duty bound to tell people to keep them away, and exactly why we think it necessary (I will ALWAYS put the safety of women and children first, no matter who it pisses off.  I am not in this for a popularity contest).  So, don’t shoot the messenger.   In addition, last night (Jan 5) Ammon Bundy himself let it be known that he had received information from three independent sources that a dynamic raid of some kind was possibly coming soon.   So there!  – Stewart

Short Oath Keepers Statement on this Standoff

I will post a longer statement later, but for now, here is a brief statement on this situation, in general:

Oath Keepers opposes the armed occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge for the reasons already stated here last Friday (I had a hunch Ammon was going to go beyond a peaceful march and protest and was goingto conduct some form of armed direct action).  This is not in keeping with the moral imperative of only using the threat of force in defense when people’s lives are at stake, as at Bundy Ranch in 2014 (where we called on Oath Keepers from across the country to rush to the aid of the Bundy family and protect them from being “Waco’d” by military trained snipers and Special Forces veteran mercenaries).  In this case, neither the Hammonds nor their neighbors were in imminent threat of being murdered, and neither the Hammonds nor their neighbors asked for any form of armed standoff (the Hammonds decided against taking a hard stand).   In fact, they oppose it.  This is being done by outsiders who mislead and deceived locals (violating the vital principle of local control and leadership), deceived the Hammonds, and deceived the patriot movement by luring them in with a peaceful rally against the truly shocking abuses and injustices perpetrated on the Hammond family and then attempting to rope them into a premeditated, manufactured armed standoff.

Both Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne (who we suspect is an agent provocateur) told the locals in the Harney County Committee of Safety, at a public town hall meeting on December 15, 2015, that they, the locals on the committee, would be making the decisions on what was to be done and would be in charge.  In fact, Ammon directly told them:

We have people across the United States that will stand with you, I’ve already explained that.  I’m confident.  But the thing is, it’s not necessarily right, for us, or for the people, to come in here and to make a stand without the people forming and being in control of it.  That’s what this Committee of Safety is.  It is where the people elect this Committee and this Committee is in charge of those that will come in and assist throughout this country, in defending the rights of this people and enforcing the Constitution.  And, I’m not going to dance around what we’re talking about here.  We’re talking about removing these unconstitutional agencies from Harney County.   And bringing the people back up to go ranching, logging, or whatever else.  But the people have to – you, you have to exhibit enough organization to form these committees of safety so that you can charge, and be in charge of the militia.   That’s what it comes down to.  That is the proper way in which this is supposed to happen (emphasis added).
Watch the video yourself:


I agree completely with the above quoted statements by Ammond to the Harney County Committee of Safety.  The people of Harney County do have the absolute right to govern themselves, and to be in charge of, and in control over, whatever is done to secure their rights in their county and state, and they have the right to be in charge of any volunteers from elsewhere who come in to help.   That truly is “the proper way in which this is supposed to happen.”  But unfortunately, Ammon did not respect that right.   Apparently, he did not really trust the people of Harney County to be in charge, and while Ammon told the locals these soothing words about their own control of their destiny, Ammon and Ryan evidently had already planned out this armed takeover of the federal facility at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge and were already staging their outsider men and supplies in the area to do it.  All of this was done without even the knowledge, let alone the consent, of that local Committee of Safety.  The Harney County Committee of Safety is in charge of jack squat.  So much for the consent of the governed, and so much for self-government.

By doing this, as Mike Vanderboegh pointed out, Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne have given Obama the best New Years present he could hope for – an example of “militia movement/patriot aggression,” Obama can use to justify his already planned assault on gun rights (taking the focus off of the very real Jihadist terror threat, and allowing Obama to talk about a “right wing terror threat” instead), while Ammon also has the least credibility with, or support and participation from, the locals possible, since they were kept in the dark and blind-sided by this, and also with the least support from the patriot community, who were also blind-sided by Ammon and Ryan Payne.  You can read the Oregon III% statement of opposition here.   For all of the reasons our Associate Editor Brandon Smith articulated here, this standoff was a terrible plan, but one we may be stuck with.   See also the analysis of New Mexico militia leader, Bob Wright.    We support the Hammonds, who have indeed suffered terrible abuse that needs to be brought to light and corrected, and we support the return of western lands to their rightful owners, the people of the western states.   But this armed occupation is bad strategically and tactically.  There will be plenty of opportunities to take a hard stand in defense of ranchers who are taking a stand themselves, such as along the Red River in Texas.   Heck, why didn’t they just find some local ranchers and loggers in Harney County willing to start ranching again, and logging again, on those public lands, and then assign security details to protect them?  That would have been good to go, and the smart move, and we would have FULLY supported it, with deeds not just words, as we have done before, such as at the Sugar Pine mine in Josephine County, OR.   Live your lives as westerners, work your land and act as if the BLM doesn’t exist, and force the Feds to then come after you to stop you, as the clear aggressors, but do it as a united community, with the locals in charge, and we Oath Keepers will be there to back you up, and so will the Idaho and Oregon III%, the Pacific Patriot Network, the Bearded Bastards, etc who have already earned their stripes by showing up before, and they will be joined by many other groups.

A Warning to the Obama Administration:  No Free Waco’s

However, as much as we oppose what Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne have done, we must warn the Obama Administration that it does not have free reign to “Waco” the people in this standoff by using deadly military force, such as an SOD-X, Delta Force, or the FBI HRT to kill them all.  The Federal government must respect their right to due process and do all it can to end this standoff peacefully, without loss of life.   It must treat it like the Freeman standoff, not the Waco standoff.   There will be no more free Wacos, as Mike Vanderboegh, Founder of the Three Percenter movement puts it.  We agree.   Treat this with kid gloves or risk a civil war.
