Closed Wal Marts All Within Miles Of Railroad Tracks - Massive Military Convoy In Colorado - Jade Helm Confirmation Arrives
By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die
In the newly created*interactive map embedded below, All News Pipeline has put together*a list*of the events that we have been watching unfold across America in the last few months leading up to Jade Helm 15 and the 1st thing that immediately jumped out at us was the extremely close proximity of ALL of the closed Wal Mart stores in Jade Helm states to railroad tracks and specifically, to railroad access points off of streets close to the closed stores. In fact, one Wal Mart, the closed store in Pico Rivera, California is a mere 1/10th of a mile away from railroad track access, leading us to ask if this was all planned out the way it appears to have been planned out? We've also received a boatload of new pictures from our readers of military convoys including the picture above showing three rigs with military vehicles seen on it at a Wal Mart store in Chatanooga, Tennessee and many more below including a massive military convoy in Colorado.*

Oregon standoff Day 17: What you need to know Monday
As we enter Day 17 of the standoff at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, here are the latest developments:
● Critics of Ammon Bundy and his followers occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge have*launched a protest designed to line the pocketbooks of Bundy's opponents. The campaign, founded by a pair of brothers from Oregon, is known aas G.O.H.O.M.E., an acronym that stands for Getting the Occupiers of Historic Oregon Malheur Evicted.
●*A protester believed to be involved in the Malheur refuge standoff*crashed on a road near Hines early Sunday, but he was uninjured.
●*KrisAnne Hall, a prominent national face of the so-called patriot movement, will visit Burns on Monday*to conduct public workshops supporting the point-of-view of those occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Hall, a Florida attorney and radio talk show host, is scheduled to lecture from 5-7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the Harney County Fairgrounds. Her assistant said she will cover two topics: sovereignty of the state and the constitutional limits of the federal government's control.
●*Tensions mounted over the weekend*at the refuge, where*men involved in Oregon's*armed standoff clashed with conservationists*and accused government workers of harassing their families.

Arizonans orchestrating Oregon rancher standoffJoe Dana, 12 News13 days ago
Three men with close ties to Arizona are involved with the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge facility in southeastern Oregon.
Leading the takeover of the compound, which began Saturday, is onetime Laveen homeowner Ammon Bundy. He is the son of Cliven Bundy, a Nevada rancher who attracted national media attention in 2014 after refusing to pay grazing ordered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
Ammon Bundy recently moved from his Laveen home with his family, said neighbor Bennie Langendorf. The two men have been friends for fifteen years, Langendorf said Monday.
"He's a very devoted Christian and the best neighbor we ever had," Langendorf said.
Monday afternoon, Bundy stood in front of a handful of protesters at a press conference outside the refuge facility near Burns, Oregon. Bundy said he and about two dozen men and women were planning to stay at the compound as long as necessary to "go to work" reinstating lands to ranchers who lost their properties to the feds.

The Case for Civil Disobedience in Oregon Ammon Bundy talks to reporters about the Oregon protest. PRINT ARTICLE by DAVID FRENCH January 4, 2016 3:55 PM @DAVIDAFRENCH
Watching the news yesterday, a person could be forgiven for thinking that a small group of Americans had literally lost their minds. Militias are marching through Oregon on behalf of convicted arsonists? A small band of armed men has taken over a federal building? The story practically writes itself. Or does it? Deranged militiamen spoiling for a fight against the federal government make for good copy, but what if they’re right? What if the government viciously and unjustly prosecuted a rancher family so as to drive them from their land? Then protest, including civil disobedience, would be not just understandable but moral, and maybe even necessary.
Ignore for a moment the #OregonUnderAttack hashtag — a rallying cry for leftists accusing the protesters of terrorism — and the liberal media’s self-satisfied cackling. Read the court documents in the case that triggered the protest, and the accounts of sympathetic ranchers. What emerges is a picture of a federal agency that will use any means necessary, including abusing federal anti-terrorism statutes, to increase government landholdings. The story as told by the protesters begins not with the federal criminal case against Steven and Dwight Hammond but many years earlier, with the creation and expansion of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, a tract of federal land set aside by President Theodore Roosevelt as “a preserve and breeding-ground for native birds.” The federal government has since expanded the preserve in part by buying adjacent private land. Protesters allege that when private landowners refused to sell, the federal government got aggressive, diverting water during the 1980s into the “rising Malheur lakes.” Eventually, the lakes flooded “homes, corrals, barns, and graze-land.” Ranchers who were “broke and destroyed” then “begged” the government to buy their “useless ranches.”
What if the government viciously and unjustly prosecuted a rancher family so as to drive them from their land?
By the 1990s, the Hammonds were among the few private landowners who remained adjacent to the Refuge. The protesters allege that the government then began a campaign of harassment designed to force the family to sell its land, a beginning with barricaded roads and arbitrarily revoked grazing permits and culminating in an absurd anti-terrorism prosecution based largely on two “arsons” that began on private land but spread to the Refuge.
Obama’s DOJ Demands More Prison Time for Ranchers; Protesters Seize Wildlife Refuge Headquarters
By*RACHEL ALEXANDERJanuary 3, 2016*•*12 Comments
Make a mistake on federal land, even when you think you have permission, and you may find yourself going to prison for terrorism.* That’s the experience of Dwight and Steven Hammond, a father and son who own a family ranch in southern Oregon and are headed to prison Monday. This weekend some of his ranching associates*had had enough.
A peaceful street protest in support of the Hammonds was quickly followed by something more dramatic. “After the peaceful rally was completed today, a group of outside militants drove to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, where they seized and occupied the refuge headquarters,”*Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward*said.*“A collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution.”
Ammon Bundy, son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy,*said*that*he, two of his brothers and scores*of other protesters were*occupying the headquarters.*The Oregonian*reports:
In phone interviews from inside the occupied building Saturday night, Ammon Bundy and his brother, Ryan Bundy, said they are not looking to hurt anyone. But they would not rule out violence if police tried to remove them, they said.
“The facility has been the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds,” Ammon Bundy said.
The Oregonian*story also includes an*Ammon Bundy Facebook video asking others*to come help him. There he says that “this is not a time to stand down. It’s a time to stand up and come to Harney County.” Beneath the video, the*AP reports, is this statement: “ALL PATRIOTS IT’S TIME TO STAND UP NOT STAND DOWN!!! WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! COME PREPARED.”
So, have Dwight and Steven Hammond*been unjustly convicted? In 2001 and then again in 2006, the two purposely set two controlled range*fires on*land they were leasing from the*federal government’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in*rural, southern Oregon.*The 2001 fire was set to eliminate invasive species and, on their account, accidentally burned 139 acres of the land. They explained the*2006*fire*was*set to protect their land from fires raging on adjacent*federal land, and accidentally burned only*one acre of BLM land.*No one was hurt in either fire.
Steven Hammond said he*called and received*permission from the BLM to set the first fire.** The BLM claims there was no agreement.
Curiously, the DOJ did not press charges until 2011, five years after the second fire and ten years after the first one. Even more curiously, the DOJ didn’t charge them for misuse of public lands. The indictment accused them of violating the Anti-Terrorism Act. The relevant part of that law was intended to apply to people who intentionally start forest fires as acts of terrorism, not ranchers using standard ranching techniques to try to control invasive species and lower the risk of forest fires.
UNBELIEVABLE Update – Oregon “Bundy Militia” Standoff – The U.S. Attorney At The Heart of The Hammond Family Problem…
The media are focused on the “Bundy Militia” angle to the standoff in Burns Oregon, where Aamon Bundy and brothers have taken over a Malheur Wildlife Refuge Headquarters to draw attention to the plight of the Hammond family (Full Complex Back Story Here).
However, a little research (HatTip NeverTooLate) into*the original legal battle*reveals a rather startling update.
The initial, and regarded by many as overreaching, federal prosecution resulted in a federal court judge Michael Hogan assigning a 3-month sentence and 1-year sentence for Dwight Lincoln Hammond Jr (73) and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond (46) respectively.
Even federal Judge Hogan stated the prosecution under “terrorism statutes” itself was an overreach and herefused to assign ridiculously high sentences*for behavior that almost every rancher has conducted for generations.
Those sentences were fulfilled by the father an son duo in 2013 with Steven Hammond exiting prison in January 2014.** However, it was a decision by the U.S Attorney for the State of Oregon,*Amanda Marshall,*who called for an appeal to the original sentencing:
Amanda Marshall: Former U.S. Attorney for Oregon. Marshall recommended that the federal government challenge the Hammonds’ original prison sentences. By law, the convictions come with mandatory five-year sentences, but U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan in 2012 balked at the punishment and instead sentenced Dwight Hammond to three months and Steven Hammond to one year.
Marshall called Hogan’s punishments “unlawful.” The solicitor general authorized a rare appeal of an Oregon judge’s order. The appeals court sided with the prosecution, and the Hammonds returned to federal court last year to face a second sentencing. At that hearing, U.S. Chief District Judge Ann Aiken ordered the pair to finish five-year terms.”*(link)
So what would prompt U.S. Attorney for the Sate of Oregon*Ms Amanda Marshall*to file such a “rare” appeal? And, what motivation might lay behind her intentions?
A review of Amanda Marshall reveals some rather disturbing facts.
First, she was an Obama appointee.* A very left-wing activist appointee who took office October 7th 2011.* Marshall had no experience at all as a federal prosecutor before being given the job as a U.S. Attorney for Oregon.
Marshall was plucked from a*child advocacy legal jobinside the Oregon Department of Justice.*[Pay attention to this little “child advocacy aspect” because it might play a larger role later on.] Before that, she served as a deputy district attorney in Coos County.* Why?* Apparently it was because the White House wanted a woman for the job.
She lived in a commune and her life-history, all the way back to a childhood with an activist mom, is a representative story of how a*liberal moonbat is created:
* Marshall’s a bit of an outsider — having no prior experience in the federal system — and they know little about her.
So it may surprise them to learn Marshall spent part of her childhood in a commune, watched a Super Bowl at Grace Slick’s house, hung out backstage at Grateful Dead concerts, sang and danced for years in a small-town community theater and — as a young prosecutor in Coos County — carried a 9 mm pistol to crime scenes because, as she recently noted, “That’s how we rolled in the Coos.”
Marshall, 42, would be the first to acknowledge — with all deference to the Grateful Dead — that hers has been a long, strange trip indeed.
The past two years alone, as she ascended from a little-known supervisor in the child advocacy section of the Oregon Department of Justice to a corner office in the venerable Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse, was a grinding, sometimes demoralizing affair with a dash of political controversy.* (read more)
You really have to read*the whole story,*including her sisters arrest on drug charges, her estranged family and how her own daughter views her as eccentric to get the full scope of the person who was in charge of a “Childs Advocacy Section” and then later became U.S. Attorney for the state of Oregon.***You really have to*read it all.
Oregon's top prosecutor Amanda Marshall appears to be focus of investigation, not assistant

The mysterious and abrupt departure of Amanda Marshall last week as*U.S. Attorney in Oregon*got a little less murky Monday when the*U.S. Justice Department*released its first statement on the situation seeming to confirm that Marshall is indeed the focus of an ongoing investigation.
The department disputed a statement from Marshall's attorney that Scott Kerin, an assistant U.S. Attorney in the Portland office, is the one being investigated by the Office of Inspector General, not Marshall.
Marshall started an indefinite leave of absence last Thursday citing personal health reasons. The Oregonian/OregonLive broke the news that Justice Department investigators were reviewing a potentially inappropriate relationship between Marshall and Kerin.
Marshall allegedly harassed Kerin after he tried to break off the relationship, sources said.
Charese Rohny, Marshall's attorney, said instead that Marshall was the victim in this case. "I was told by the OIG they're investigating Scott," Rohny said. "That's what initiated the investigation."
On Monday, the Justice Department took issue with Rohny's statement.
"The statements in the article attributed to a lawyer for U.S. Attorney Marshall do not accurately represent the position of the OIG," the department said.
What is the likely impact of Amanda Marshall's leave on the Kitzhaber/Hayes investigation?
There is some weird irony in the fact that the most notorious investigative matter of Amanda Marshall's prosecutorial career has been that of a politician brought down primarily because of a relationship, and*it's now possible that her career as a public official will end*because of a relationship. [UPDATE 3/20: The*Oregonian's Bryan Denson*reports*that there wasn't any romantic relationship, but rather too much texting and emailing, possibly about the Assistant U.S. Attorney's personal life.]
But irony aside, one might wonder what will be the likely impact of Marshall's leave on the ongoing investigation of ex-Governor Kitzhaber and Cylvia Hayes.
As I see it, the likely impact is pretty much ... zero.
U.S. Attorneys are frequently tapped to become U.S. District Judges, which is not surprising, since the candidates for both positions are usually selected from a pool recommended by the Senator(s) of that State, assuming congruent political party affiliation with the President. (Or, they may become state judges, which is what happened with Karin Immergut, who served as the U.S. Attorney in Oregon from 2003 to 2009.)
Connecticut Supreme Court rules confiscation of firearms legal and constitutional
Posted by*Coach Collins
By Doug Book, editor
In 2013, the New York City Police Department begansending notices to certain gun owners*using a “…centralized firearms registry which lists the city’s gun owners and what firearms they have in their possession.”* The notice referred to firearms prohibited under*New York’s “Safe Act,”*the law passed (in part) in
vengeful retaliation against law abiding owners of so-called “Assault Weapons” for the murders at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The gun owners were given a simple choice—surrender the now illegally held guns to the police, remove them from the city, destroy them or become a wanted felon. How did the City know where to send the letters? Simple. The recipients had revealed their identity by registering their firearms.
In Connecticut the same legislation was passed in response to the same tragedy, the only difference being lawmakers there were responsible for the murders, having declaring Sandy Hook a “Gun Free Zone.”
By the end of the mandatory registration period in the Constitution State some 50,000 owners had registered their black rifles*while an estimated*300 to 400 thousand had refused.

' God wants us here’: More militiamen arrive at Malheur"We're doing what's right, we're doing what the founding fathers would do"
Andrew Dymburt and KOIN 6 News StaffPublished:*January 20, 2016, 4:22 pm**Updated:January 20, 2016, 4:40 pm
BURNS, Ore. (KOIN) — The same day*Oregon Governor Kate Brown called the takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge “absolutely intolerable”,*more militiamen from around the country drove in truck by truck to join the cause.
Group leader Ammon Bundy says there is much work to be done, and that’s why Wednesday’s regularly scheduled press conference was canceled.

FBI tells Oregon refuge occupiers to leave as authorities set up roadblocks
By*Les Zaitz | The Oregonian/OregonLive*

BURNS – Law enforcement officers set up roadblocks Tuesday night around the headquarters of the occupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge hours after one of the takeover's top spokesmen was killed and other leaders were arrested on a highway out of town.
FBI officials told those still at the compound, about 30 miles southeast of Burns, that they were free to leave and should do so. By midnight, few people appeared to have taken up the offer and the lights were still on.
Authorities provided no information about the roadblocks, but have scheduled a news conference for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in Burns.
Only a few people had left, said Gary Hunt, who arrived Sunday from California to support the occupation. "The rest have decided they're going to hold their ground," he said.
Hunt -- a board member of Operation Mutual Defense, a network of militias and patriot sympathizers – left the headquarters late Tuesday and talked to The Oregonian/OregonLive while parked six miles from the refuge.
Among those still there was Ammon Bundy's wife, Lisa. She told those at the compound that she took a call from her husband after his arrest and he described some of what happened.
Hunt said there was confusion among those remaining at the compound and he wasn't certain who was providing leadership.
The protesters anticipate that law enforcement will take action against them, he said. "They've got their observers out," he said.* **
In recent days, it looked as if about 40 people were staying in the buildings, including women and children.
Occupiers and supporters have traveled freely in and out of the headquarters and to Burns. Police have kept a low profile in the refuge area since Ammon Bundy and a small band of armed followers took over the compound on Jan. 2 to protest the federal arson sentences of two local ranchers and government land-use policies.
Police had blocked the primary route into the refuge – two-lane Sod House Lane –* about a quarter-mile west of the refuge entrance. A large front-end loader sat across the road, with other police vehicles parked on the shoulders.
All had their lights off, creating an eerie scene out on the high desert with a nearly full moon.
The roadblock could be seen from the refuge compound and especially from the fire tower where the occupiers have posted around-the-clock lookouts.
The compound sits in a bowl beside Sod House Lane and includes office buildings, shops, a bunkhouse and a museum.
With Ammon Bundy and other leaders under arrest, it was unclear who was left to lead the occupation. Blaine Cooper and Jason Patrick, two of those involved in the original occupation and who have been active in leadership, were part of the contingent still at the refuge.
Dead Cowboy,' Arrests Leave Oregon Standoff in Disarray Protest spokesman LaVoy Finicum is dead
BY ROB QUINN, *NEWSER STAFF
JAN 27, 2016 4:09 AM CST*|*UPDATED JAN 27, 2016 7:09 AM CST
NEWSER)*– Occupation over? Eight people were arrested after an anti-government protester was*shot dead Tuesday evening, and it's no longer clear who—if anybody—is now leading the occupation of an Oregon wildlife refuge. The man killed after FBI and state police stopped vehicles on Highway 395 has been identified as Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, 55, a spokesman for the occupation and one of its most visible members, the*Oregonian*reports. "He would never ever want to hurt somebody, but he does believe in defending freedom and he knew the risks involved," one of the Arizona rancher's 11 children tells the paper. In other developments:
The FBI and Oregon State Police say group leader Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan were among five people arrested after the highway incident,*Oregon Public Broadcastingreports. Two men were arrested in the nearby town of Burns, and another suspect was arrested in Arizona.
Authorities say Ryan Bundy, 43, suffered a gunshot wound during the incident and was treated in a hospital before being released to FBI custody.It isn't clear how many people remain at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which the protesters seized in early January. Bundy supporter Brand Thornton says he left on Monday. "The entire leadership is gone," he tells the*AP. "I wouldn't blame any of them for leaving."There are conflicting accounts of the highway shooting. Nevada lawmaker Michele Fiore says Ammon Bundy called his wife and told her that Finicum was cooperating with authorities when he was shot, but sources tell the*Oregonian*that he resisted arrest and ignored an order to surrender.Raw Story*reports that one of the two men arrested in Arizona is Jon Ritzheimer, another high-profile occupier. In a*Facebook post, he says he came home to see his daughters before turning himself in, and he asks for donations to help with legal fees.The FBI says all eight people arrested will 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 threat," per the AP."I am pleased that the FBI has listened to the concerns of the local community and responded to the illegal activity occurring in Harney County by outside extremists," Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley said in a statement. "I hope that the remaining individuals occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge will peacefully surrender."One occupier still at the refuge tells the*New York Times*that the plan now is to wait for sunlight "and see what's up." Jason Patrick says the mood is "prepared but calm," but he believes the FBI is "hellbent on war." "They said 'peaceful resolution,' but now there is a dead cowboy," he says.
High-profile militant Jon Ritzheimer flees home to Arizona hours before feds spring trap
26 JAN 2016 AT 23:20 ET
One of the most prominent Oregon militants fled home before his comrades were shot, arrested or scattered during an apparent ambush by law enforcement officers.
Jon Ritzheimer, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who has gained a high profile for his anti-Muslim rallies and threats against government officials, shared a series of Facebook posts that indicated he’d left the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and returned home.
FYI. I came home to AZ to visit my family,” Ritzheimer posted late Tuesday. “The feds know I am here and are charging me with Conspiracy to impede a federal officer. I need an attorney. My family needs help and I am hoping they grant me bail.”
That’s the same charge that law enforcement officers have lodged against seven other militants, including Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy and Ryan Payne.
FBI agents under investigation for possible misconduct in LaVoy Finicum shooting
By*Les Zaitz | The Oregonian/OregonLive*

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.
Finicum, 54, an Arizona rancher, was one of the leaders of the Jan. 2 takeover of* the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns.
Investigators gave no details to explain why the one FBI agent, a member of the Hostage Rescue Team, wouldn't report the two shots.They also didn't indicate what his four colleagues did to warrant investigation other than saying it was related to conduct after the shooting.
"The question of who fired these shots has not been resolved," said Greg Bretzing, special agent in charge of the FBI in Portland. The federal agency is cooperating with the inspector general's investigation, he said at a news conference.*
The revelation is certain to inflame suspicions about Finicum's death and shake confidence in the FBI, which came under intense fire for botched handling of violent sieges at Ruby Ridge in Idaho and Waco, Texas.
Some supporters have claimed Finicum was shot while surrendering, that he was unarmed and that he was shot nine times. The sheriff in neighboring Grant County, Glenn Palmer, described the police operation as an "ambush."
Finicum's family said in a statement a month ago that he was "executed in cold blood" and accused police agencies of deliberately misleading the public about what happened. His widow, Jeanette Finicum, didn't retreat from that stance after watching the news conference.
My husband was murdered," she said in a statement.
The attorney for Ammon Bundy, the occupation's now-jailed leader, found the* news of the FBI shots troubling.
"I'm going to have to go back and reconsider all the conspiracy theories that I've written off," said the lawyer, Mike Arnold.
Investigators had planned to release police reports, interview transcripts, photographs, the autopsy report and new video to allow the public to evaluate the police findings in Finicum's death.
But they ended up releasing only one video and 19 photographs, citing the new criminal investigation for the change in plans. They also withheld the names of the involved troopers and FBI agents, saying they've tracked up to 80 threats against them, mostly on social media.
The shooting happened after police stopped a Jeep and a pickup carrying the key figures of the occupation along a remote stretch of U.S. 395 north of Burns.
Finicum was driving the truck that carried carried Ryan C. Bundy, 43, Ryan W. Payne, 32, Shawna Cox, 59, and Victoria Sharp, 18. In the Jeep behind them was driver Mark McConnell, 37, Brian D. Cavalier, 44, and Ammon Bundy, 40, the public face of the occupation. They were bound for a community meeting 100 miles north of the refuge in John Day.
Officer statements and cellphone video taken by Cox from inside the truck showed that Finicum repeatedly ignored police orders, first at the traffic stop and then after he crashed trying to elude officers. He nearly ran over an FBI agent before stalling in a roadside snowbank.
What happened in just seconds after that crash could lead to criminal charges against the FBI agents.
Cox's video showed that one shot hit the truck's left rear passenger window as Finicum stepped out. At the time, Finicum appeared to have his hands at least at shoulder height.
Investigators later established that the bullet entered the truck through the roof before shattering the window and concluded it was*fired by an FBI agent. Another bullet from the same FBI agent apparently went wild and missed the truck altogether, the investigation showed.
Finicum then moved toward the back of his truck and out of view of Cox's phone, but she was still able to record what was said outside the truck.
Officers repeatedly ordered Finicum to get on the ground, according to the video. The investigation found that Finicum first faced a state trooper taking cover in nearby trees, then turned toward two troopers advancing from the highway.
Those two state troopers fired when Finicum turned back toward the trooper in the trees while reaching for a loaded 9 mm Ruger semi-automatic pistol inside his jacket, investigators said.
Finicum was struck from behind in the left shoulder, the left upper back near his neck and the right lower back, a state autopsy found. The bullet in his lower back migrated up and hit several organs, including his heart. He died at the scene.
One of those two troopers moments earlier had fired at Finicum's truck as it barreled toward the police roadblock. That trooper hit the truck with three rounds, investigators concluded.
"All six shots fired by the Oregon State Police, the three into the truck and the three that struck Mr. Finicum, are justified," said Malheur County District Attorney Dan Norris. The shots were "in fact, necessary," he said.
Although Norris cleared the troopers of wrongdoing, the entire operation remains under a cloud with the disclosure of possible misconduct by the FBI agents. Law enforcement officials tried to blunt the impact, noting that investigating officers discovered and reported the alleged cover-up.
Just days before announcing the investigation results, hundreds of people gathered for weekend demonstrations scheduled in at least 35 states to protest Finicum's death. They repeated claims that police murdered the occupation spokesman and condemned what many said is the federal government's renewed effort to silence self-described patriots and militia members.
They were reacting in part to 12 more arrests last week related to the 2014 armed standoff in Nevada involving rancher Cliven Bundy, the father of Ammon and Ryan Bundy. So far, 37 people face federal charges related to the Oregon and Nevada standoffs.
The Finicum shooting investigation showed that the FBI and state police jointly planned the operation when they learned on Sunday, Jan. 24, through media reports that many of the occupation leaders would be on the road to John Day two days later.
State troopers were tasked with conducting the traffic stop at a predesignated area, near a U.S. Forest Service road where police forces could wait out of sight. A squad of FBI agents and troopers was assigned to set up the road block roughly two miles north*to contain any fleeing suspects and to stop other motorists from driving into the operation.
The teams expected Finicum to be armed. He was photographed repeatedly at the refuge with a holstered handgun.
Investigators determined that five of the eight people in the Jeep and truck carried loaded handguns. Detectives also recovered three rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition from the vehicles.
Ammon Bundy didn't mention the weapons in a jailhouse interview last week with The Oregonian/OregonLive. "We were headed with weapons of laptops, projectors and PA systems,'' Bundy said. "We were going peacefully to a community meeting.''
The reports showed that Bundy wasn't armed. He, Cavalier and McConnell surrendered without incident.
Finicum stopped his 2015 Dodge pickup a short distance away. Payne, the tactical leader of the occupation, surrendered after a state trooper fired a plastic tipped 40mm pepper spray round that struck the truck's canopy. The other four people stayed in the idling pickup and Finicum launched into a back-and-forth shouting match with troopers, the investigation found.
He told troopers he was leaving to reach the sheriff in John Day. He referred to Palmer six times at the initial stop.
"The sheriff is waiting for us," he said at one point. "I'm going over to meet the sheriff in Grant County," he said moments later.
He taunted troopers to shoot him or otherwise let him go to Palmer. The sheriff has become something of a national hero among anti-government protesters for appearing to support the armed occupiers and opposing federal government control of public land.
"You want my blood on your hands?" Finicum shouted out the window of his truck.
Finicum then sped away, hitting up to 70 mph, the investigative reports showed. Two FBI pickup trucks*and one from the state police*were parked in his path down the highway, with agents and troopers arrayed around them.
After Finicum crashed into the snowbank and left his truck, state troopers told him at least three times to get on the ground, according to the video. The trooper with the Taser stepped through the snow toward Finicum.
"He was attempting to control or subdue Mr. Finicum with less lethal force after Mr. Finicum refused orders to get on the ground," said Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson, who led the investigation into the shooting.
Finicum repeatedly challenged police to shoot him as he moved toward them.
"You're going to have to shoot me," he said and was told again to get on the ground, the video showed.
"In the midst of that command, Mr. Finicum grabs his jacket with his left hand and reaches with his right hand for his gun," Nelson said.
That's when the two troopers behind Finicum fired the fatal shots.
"Mr. Finicum repeatedly and knowingly made choices that put him in this situation," said Harney County District Attorney Tim Colahan. "It was not the outcome that any of us wanted but one he, alone, is responsible for."
Oregon standoff defendants found not guilty in 'unbelievable, truly astonishing' verdict

A jury Thursday delivered a stunning across-the-board acquittal to the leaders and participants in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation and a remarkable blow to the federal government as it tries to tamp down a national movement led by a Nevada family to open public lands to ranchers, miners and loggers.
The verdicts finding Ammon Bundy, older brother Ryan Bundy and five others not guilty of a federal conspiracy drew elation from defense attorneys who spent five weeks arguing that the armed takeover amounted to a time-honored tradition of First Amendment protest and civil disobedience.
"Maybe this is a lesson that that's not the way to engage with these people, who want nothing more than just to be heard, just to have a forum to talk about the injustices like the case of the Hammonds and the treatment of ranchers," said Lisa Ludwig, standby counsel for Ryan Bundy.
The high-profile case riveted the state and drew national and international attention to the isolated bird sanctuary in rural eastern Oregon. The jury's decision proved no less dramatic and sets up a showdown in the next stage of the land-rights movement.
The Bundy brothers still face prosecution in Nevada with their father, Cliven Bundy, all accused in the 2014 standoff at the patriarch's ranch over unpaid grazing fees that pitted the family and their supporters against federal Bureau of Land Management agents.
The Oregon prosecutors sat silently in front of their boss, U.S Attorney Billy Williams, and the head of the FBI in Oregon, Greg Bretzing, as the judge announced the "not guilty'' pleas one by one.
Williams later thanked the jury in a written statement. "While we had hoped for a different outcome, we respect the verdict of the jury and thank them for their dedicated service during this long and difficult trial,'' Williams said. "We strongly believed that this case needed to be brought before a Court, publicly tried and decided by a jury.''
Bretzing, whose agents led the response to the Jan. 2 refuge seizure, offered a slightly different take. "We believe now -- as we did then – that protecting and defending this nation through rigorous obedience to the U.S. Constitution is our most important responsibility.''
Each defendant stood separately, facing the jury, as the judge read the verdicts. Ammon Bundy, his hands clasped behind his back, nodded as the "not guilty'' came for him first. As he sat, he smiled and rubbed the shoulder of his lawyer, Marcus Mumford.
Ryan Bundy nodded his head and mouthed to jurors, "Thank you."
"I had a very peaceful feeling but I didn't know we'd all be found not guilty," said defendant Shawna Cox. "... I'm so grateful to the jury.''
Defendant Neil Wampler hugged his defense lawyer and gave her a kiss.
But the trial fireworks weren't quite over. A brawl broke out at the very end, when six to seven U.S. marshals surrounded Ammon Bundy's lawyer as he stood before the judge, arguing and shouting for his client to walk out the door a free man. They tackled him and stunned him with a Taser gun. As Mumford yelled, "What are you doing?,'' U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown ordered, "Everybody out of the courtroom!''
Jury acquits leaders of Oregon standoff of federal charges
Published October 27, 2016
PORTLAND, Ore. – The leaders of an armed group who seized a national wildlife refuge in rural Oregon were acquitted Thursday in the 41-day standoff that brought new attention to a long-running dispute over control of federal lands in the U.S. West.
A jury found brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy not guilty of possessing a firearm in a federal facility and conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, 300 miles southeast of Portland where the trial took place. Five co-defendants also were tried one or both of the charges.
Despite the acquittal, the Bundys were expected to stand trial in Nevada early next year on charges stemming from another high-profile standoff with federal agents. Authorities rounding up cattle at their father Cliven Bundy's ranch in 2014 because of unpaid grazing fees released the animals as they faced armed protesters.

The mainstream media will do their best to suppress it:—in the midst of their quest to get Hillary Clinton elected as America’s 45th—but Bureau of Land Management-harassed rancher Ammon Bundy, and six others have been acquitted in the largely media ignored Oregon standoff trial.
The acquittal telegraphs a message to U.S. citizenry that justice can still be found in American courts politicized Attorney Generals like Loretta Lynch and an Obama influenced FBI notwithstanding.
Written off by mainstream media for months on end, tears of joy of the acquitted ended what can only be described as surrealistic.
“Ammon Bundy; his brother, Ryan Bundy; and three other people were found not guilty of firearms charges and conspiracy to impede federal workers. Two others who were acquitted were charged only with conspiracy. The federal jury couldn’t reach a verdict on a theft charge against Ryan Bundy.
“One of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge defendants, Neil Wampler, told reporters: “We came to Oregon ... seeking justice, and we found it today.”
“Another, Shawna Cox, said the jury’s decision brought her to tears.
“I was thrilled. We all knew we weren’t guilty,” she said, according to CNN affiliate KOIN .
“Harney County Sheriff David M. Ward said he was disappointed.
“This is our system and I stand by it,” he added.
“Gov. Kate Brown said she respected the jury’s decision.”
If the election is stolen, The People can cripple this country in days and collapse it within two weeks
Monday, 31 October 2016 22:22
Written by Hal Turner
There is an awful lot of speculation about the coming Presidential Election being "stolen" by voter fraud, illegal aliens being allowed to vote and through electronic voting machines programmed to steal the election. Maybe all that is true, I don't know.
What I do know is that if Donald J. Trump does not win, then the election is illegitimate. Just look at the facts:
Clinton/Kaine have fewer than 500 people at almost ALL of their campaign events. They have empty campaign offices, no volunteers, few (if any) signs of support as you drive through most any town or city.
Trump/Pence on the other hand, have literally THOUSANDS of cheering supporters at absolutely every campaign event. They have so many people trying to attend their rallies, thousands have to be turned away because the venues are filled to overflowing! Trump/Pence campaign offices are teaming with volunteers. Trump/Pence signs are literally all over the place. In every city and town, on every road, nationwide!
Of course, the mass-media "polls' say the race is already won by Hillary. But Wikileaks revelations show that the polls have been deliberately "over-sampled" to make certain they achieve a pro-Clinton result. Put simply, most of the polls are deliberate frauds.
Then too, of course, we have the Project Veritas undercover videos showing Democrat Party workers bragging about hiring, training and PAYING people to incite violence at Trump rallies, organizing with each other to bus hundreds of voters from polling place to polling place to cast fraudulent votes, and admitting on tape to having done this "for fifty years."
Let's not forget the Wikileaks email from Hillary Campaign Chair John Podesta who casually mentioned how illegal aliens can vote, simply by showing their Driver License and attesting to being a US Citizen!
And I would be remiss if I didn't mention the latest disastrous leaked email, from Bill Clinton's Chief of Staff, to Hillary Clinton's Campaign Manager which said "Foreign Govt Donors: all the money is in." WOW! They're taking money from foreign governments!
So putting things bluntly, if Hillary Clinton somehow "wins" this election, then the election is ILLEGITIMATE.
What to do then?
Some folks are talking about rising up in insurrection and overthrowing the federal government by force. That certainly is their right as the sole source of sovereign power in this nation. They certainly have the ability to do that very swiftly and the feds know it. The military is so concerned about this that more than one active duty General has produced videos for the troops asking them not to take sides with any such effort! But since the overwhelming majority of military is supporting Trump, it's easy to see where their loyalties would be in any insurrection: with The People!
Others are saying they'll up and move out of the country. Blah Blah Blah.
Few have spoken about the plans already well-underway, to pull all the money out of the banks and out of the stock market to collapse the financial system and break the government's back financially. What's that you say, you haven't HEARD about that plan? Well, you have now!
I think it is important to make clear that I am not advocating this or soliciting this activity. I am merely REPORTING IT. That's what we in the media actually do; we report things. That's what I'm doing here. So be clear that this is not my idea - I'm just reporting, and commenting on it.
I cannot even begin to tell you how many people in how many civic groups, social clubs and trade organizations have been talking this up for months! It is a very clever plan they've hatched because it strikes "the beast" right in its heart - the money.
Think about what it would do if all the "little people" pulled all their cash out of the banks starting Wednesday, November 9. It would wreak havoc. The banks would be forced to shut down by Friday, November 11. And as soon as banks began shutting down, it would cause panic, causing the problem to spread. . . Which helps the Pro-Trump people anyway! Because panic leads to civil unrest.

Just For The Record- The One and Only Black American President in United States History!
A "Black" Man, A Moor, John Hanson
In the United States of America schools their history books speak not of history, but instead his story. His story is the European account or perception of what happen, as where history is what's recorded. Here in America, you learn that the government can write a lie just like they can tell one, and if you're of color, your history is considered to be irrelevant if it's not in agreement to how the government has it recorded. America is stolen property, the tribe of Gad whom they disgracefully call indians were given small pox, whooping cough, measles, typhoid fever, mumps, rubella and their children and women were raped, their men were murdered, all so the Jewish Elite could exterminate them and gain control of their land in which this land here is America. So upon conquering the tribe of Gad they then brought over the Tribe of Judah whom they call niggers on cargo slave ships, and sold them as slaves. Both tribes were forced to take on the European holidays, customs, school system, religions and were forced to worship an English god name Jesus who was in no relation to their Hebrew God of Israel. So to make them feel inferior, they hired different Jewish factions to go into the Hebrew text and omit the name of their God and replace it with YHWH and cover their tracks by making it trace in the tetragrammaton to the same letters in the Hebrew.
So this way, they couldn't call on the name of their God to save them as they did in Egypt, Persia, Babylon, and Rome. They created a history for them and passed it off to their schools and press, to make the world look upon them as savages and animals who needed to be civilized, they had to instill in the minds of white Americans of a people who were less inferior to their race. So not knowing any history, these tribes grow up in America being called by American names and worshipping in American religions and celebrating American history and fighting in American wars, while never knowing their not American and while never knowing their true history. See in America you don't show your slaves important people of their race who took a stand against the government by fighting for justice, naw here in America you teach them they have no history so therefore they will feel as if they never accomplished anything and were less human than others.
Increasing the moral and self confidence within your slaves would make them feel as if they are somebody and would make them desire to be more than what their told they can be, and this scared white America, because if this people felt this way, they would start reading between the lines that they were given and start asking questions and seeking the truth. These tribes were never taught that their founding fathers were Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, instead white America gave them new history and taught them that their founding fathers were George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. So as you can see, America has a history of creating false history to give unto the races it considers to be underneath the white race, which is why today the tribe of Judah thinks they never had a black president before, when truth is Barack Obama is not the first so called black President, John Hanson was the first so called black president, but eighth president overall. Barack Obama was picked to become president at Columbia University in 1981 by Zibgnew Brezenski and Henry Kissinger, two men working for the government elite known as the Illuminati. See the government knows that their are some intellectually independent people out here, who will not buy into their account of history. So what did they do, well in order to throw off those who would think it was a black president before, they created a white image and attached onto him the black man's name, so when people started to ask questions and wakeup, they could then say hey thats a lie, there wasn't no black president before, see John Hanson was a white guy, which is the same thing they do with their image of Christ, despite man being made from humus soil which is dark brown and despite the scriptures describing Christ as a black man. Despite all their deceptive ways to keep the truth hidden and concealed, the Most High still has a way of uncovering the lies that has been taught to his people and bringing it to their knowledge.

Question: Well then whats recorded?
The Continental Congress was the first government body established. The first 3 Presidents of the Continental Congress were as follows: Peyton Randolph, Henry Middleton, and John Hancock. After John Hancock three more men served as Presidents and they where: Henry Laurens, John Jay, Samuel Huntington.
1. Peyton Randolph
2. Henry Middleton
3. John Hancock
4. Henry Laurens
5. John Jay
6. Samuel Huntington
Question: So what happen to the Continental Congress?
The Confederation was not ratified by all 13 states until March l, 1781, at which time the Continental Congress ceased to exist. So Huntington continued as Confederation president until he resigned in July 1781 thus, technically, he was the first President of the United States, but their account of what happen tells you that George Washington was the first President.
Question: So who became President after Huntington?
Thomas McKean of Delaware was elected "President of the United States in Congress Assembled" in July 1781. Then after him you have John Hanson, Elias Boudinot, Thomas Mifflin, Richard Henry Lee, John Hancock, Nathaniel Gorham, Arthur St. Clair, Cyrus Grifin and finally George Washington.
7. Thomas McKean
8. John Hanson (First Black)
9. Elias Boudinot
10. Thomas Mifflin
11. Richard Henry Lee
12. John Hancock (also the 3rd)
13. Nathaniel Gorham
14. Arthur St. Clair
15. Cyrus Griffin
16. George Washington
Question: So what happen next?
You don't hear about the first Presidents of The United States because The Articles of Confederation was looked upon as an American failure. The individual states had too much power and nothing could be agreed upon. So, America didn't want it's failure to be known because America is perceived as a democracy, so a new doctrine needed to be written. A "federal" constitution welding the diseparate states into a nation was adopted Sept 17, 1787. George Washington was elected President of the United States under the new doctrine known as the Constitution by a vote of citizens in 1789.
Was There an African American President Before Barack Obama?
Someone that I know has been posting that Barack Obama is not the first African-American President, that indeed there was an African-American President before him, John Hanson.
I did my own research and found that John Hanson was the President of the Constitutional Congress, something quite different than the President of the United States (considering the United States wasn't even formed then). I also found that the John Hanson that was the President of the Constitutional Congress was not African, he was indeed Swedish.
I have found web sites that claim there is a cover-up about John Hanson and say that he was an African and that history has been changed to make him appear white. They have a photo of a man that they claim to be him. However, I don't believe these claims. I don't know who the man in the photos is, but I do know that there was a John Hanson who lived a hundred years after the John Hanson that I'm looking for, he was from Liberia and African—but NOT the president of the Constitutional Congress.

Billionaire globalist pens panicked rant
Paul Joseph Watson
December 29, 2016
Billionaire globalist George Soros has penned a panicked rant in which he decries President-elect Donald Trump as a “would be dictator” who threatens the future of the new world order.
In an article for Project Syndicate, Soros begins by mentioning how he lived under both Nazi and then Soviet rule in Hungary before asserting that “various forms of closed societies – from fascist dictatorships to mafia states – are on the rise.”
This claim is confounded by the facts, which show that, “The share of the world population living in democracies (has) increased continuously.”
Soros writes that in voting for Trump, Americans “elected a con artist and would-be dictator as its president,” and that his defeat of Hillary Clinton means America will be “unable to protect and promote democracy in the rest of the world” (because that policy worked so well in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya).
Open Society Needs Defending
Open societies are in crisis, and various forms of closed societies – from fascist dictatorships to mafia states – are on the rise. Because elected leaders failed to meet voters’ legitimate expectations and aspirations, electorates have become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism.
DEC 28, 2016 35
NEW YORK – Well before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, I sent a holiday greeting to my friends that read: “These times are not business as usual. Wishing you the best in a troubled world.” Now I feel the need to share this message with the rest of the world. But before I do, I must tell you who I am and what I stand for.
I am an 86-year-old Hungarian Jew who became a US citizen after the end of World War II. I learned at an early age how important it is what kind of political regime prevails. The formative experience of my life was the occupation of Hungary by Hitler’s Germany in 1944. I probably would have perished had my father not understood the gravity of the situation. He arranged false identities for his family and for many other Jews; with his help, most survived.
The Year Ahead 2017 Cover Image
In 1947, I escaped from Hungary, by then under Communist rule, to England. As a student at the London School of Economics, I came under the influence of the philosopher Karl Popper, and I developed my own philosophy, built on the twin pillars of fallibility and reflexivity. I distinguished between two kinds of political regimes: those in which people elected their leaders, who were then supposed to look after the interests of the electorate, and others where the rulers sought to manipulate their subjects to serve the rulers’ interests. Under Popper’s influence, I called the first kind of society open, the second, closed.
The classification is too simplistic. There are many degrees and variations throughout history, from well-functioning models to failed states, and many different levels of government in any particular situation. Even so, I find the distinction between the two regime types useful. I became an active promoter of the former and opponent of the latter.
I find the current moment in history very painful. Open societies are in crisis, and various forms of closed societies – from fascist dictatorships to mafia states – are on the rise. How could this happen? The only explanation I can find is that elected leaders failed to meet voters’ legitimate expectations and aspirations and that this failure led electorates to become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism. Quite simply, many people felt that the elites had stolen their democracy.
'FAKE' OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE WAS 'INSIDE JOB'
Investigator: Evidence shows government officials involved
Published: 4 days ago
About | Email | Archive
The chief investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s probe of the validity of the image Barack Obama released as his birth certificate says evidence suggests the involvement of the Hawaiian government in the alleged fabrication.
WND reported last week that Arpaio and his chief investigator on the Obama birth certificate issue, Mike Zullo, held a news conference to reveal evidence they say shows the document was fabricated on a computer.
They conclude it is not a copy of any original Hawaiian document, and while their investigation did not address whether Obama is a “natural-born citizen” as the Constitution requires for presidents, or the political implications of such a forgery, they said it certainly raises many questions going forward.
Zullo showed how the digital images on the document released by Obama in a White House news conference allegedly were copied from another document.
Zullo said the alleged fraud apparently involved the Hawaiian government.
His comments came in an interview on the Hagmann Report, where he was joined by pastor, author, radio host and former law-enforcement officer Carl Gallups of the PPSIMMONS blog, who was made a special deputy by the sheriff for the purposes of information exchange and accountability.
Zullo explained the investigation found that some of the images on the Obama document image apparently were copied from an original birth certificate that belongs to a woman named Johanna Ah’nee.
But Ah’nee said she obtained a copy of her birth certificate and kept it locked in her own files until after the Obama image was released. At about that time, she revealed it to WND senior writer Jerry Corsi, who was reporting on the dispute

PHOENIX - Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Chief Investigator Mike Zullo say "nine points of forgery" have been found on President Barack Obama's birth certificate.
During a Thursday press conference, Arpaio and Zullo said their five-year-long investigation revealed new evidence including "forensic analysis showing the characters on the document were pieced together from secondary sources."
According to Zullo, the certificate released by the White House in 2011 appears to be a "created" document that sources an official Hawaiian birth certificate belonging to a Johana Ah'nee.
A video played during the press conference showed nine elements that were lifted and placed on the Obama certificate in "an apparent attempt to make it appear authentic."
CIA Director John Brennan Proudly Acknowledges That He Once Voted for a Communist
BY RON RADOSH SEPTEMBER 21, 2016
As most people know, joining the intelligence community means that one has to explain and be honest about one’s former peccadillos. One must also be aware of what figures in government spied against their own country in the past. Some years ago, as a CIA study of the Alger Hiss case noted, President Clinton’s nominee to head the CIA was rejected partially because of what he said about Soviet spy Alger Hiss:
Anyone who doubts that the Hiss case continues to effect American politics need only ask Anthony Lake, President Clinton's former national security adviser. In November 1996, following the resignation of Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) John Deutch, Clinton nominated Lake to be the new DCI. On 24 November, Lake appeared on Meet the Press , where he was interviewed by moderator Tim Russert:
John O. Brennan
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Owen Brennan (born September 22, 1955) is an American government official who is the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He has served as chief counterterrorism advisor to U.S. President Barack Obama; his title was Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, and Assistant to the President. His responsibilities included overseeing plans to protect the country from terrorism and respond to natural disasters, and he met with the President daily. Previously, he advised President Obama on foreign policy and intelligence issues during the 2008 presidential campaign and transition. Brennan withdrew his name from consideration for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the first Obama administration over concerns about his support for transferring terror suspects to countries where they may be tortured while serving under President George W. Bush. Instead, Brennan was appointed Deputy National Security Advisor, a position which did not require Senate confirmation.
Brennan's 25 years with the CIA included work as a Near East and South Asia analyst, as station chief in Saudi Arabia, and as director of the National Counterterrorism Center. After leaving government service in 2005, Brennan became CEO of The Analysis Corporation, a security consulting business, and served as chairman of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, an association of intelligence professionals.
President Barack Obama nominated Brennan as his next director of the CIA on January 7, 2013. The ACLU called for the Senate not to proceed with the appointment until it confirms that "all of his conduct was within the law" at the CIA and White House. John Brennan was approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee on March 5, 2013 to succeed David Petraeus as the Director of the CIA by a vote of 12 to 3.
His term as CIA Director coincided with revelations that the U.S. government conducted massive levels of global surveillance, that the CIA had hacked into the computers of U.S. Senate employees, and the release of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture.
John Brennan is completely unqualified to be Director of Central Intelligence
OCTOBER 26, 2016 1:03 PM BY MICHAEL J. DEL ROSSO
The high-ranking CIA official who converted to Islam, who was called “Roger” in a Washington Post report, was outed last year, confirming that he is not Brennan, but another official named Michael D’Andrea. As the Washington Post reported in 2012, D’Andrea “married a Muslim woman he met abroad, prompting his conversion to Islam.”
Brennan just happens to be another Muslim. Where Spencer wrote of Roger, “Why couldn’t it be Brennan?,” more accurately the question should have been, “Why couldn’t Brennan be a convert to Islam, too?” At the time of the Washington Post article, Brennan was White House Counter-Terrorism Coordinator, and was not in the CIA, while “Roger” was running CIA counter-terrorism operations.
As far as Brennan’s conversion to Islam is concerned, a U.S. asset assigned overseas with Brennan in Saudi Arabia when he was station chief confirmed years ago their firsthand account that Brennan was indeed the target of a Saudi intelligence influence operation that led to his conversion. Brennan has also stated publicly that he visited Mecca, which is impossible for a non-Muslim to do unless he is a special guest of the Saudi King.
When John Guandolo wrote an op-ed in February 2013 to try to rally Senators to oppose Brennan’s nomination to be DCI, I advised John that Brennan’s conversion was de facto irrelevant, given the fact that the Washington Post had recently reported that “Roger,” the CIA’s chief of counter-terror operations, was a Muslim, and that was a non-issue to everyone.
A more compelling disqualifier for Brennan is that he consistently says that “jihad” is a good thing. For example, in 2009, Brennan said: “Nor does President Obama see this challenge as a fight against ‘jihadists.’ Describing terrorists in this way—using a legitimate term, ‘jihad,’ meaning to purify oneself or to wage a holy struggle for a moral goal—risks giving these murderers the religious legitimacy they desperately seek but in no way deserve.” And in 2010, he said: “Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘jihadists’ or ‘Islamists’ because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children.”
Born in northern New Jersey on September 22, 1955, John Brennan earned a B.A. in political science from Fordham University in 1977. In 1976 he voted for Communist Party USA presidential nominee Gus Hall. As historian Ron Radosh points out, “The CPUSA at that time was dedicated to gaining support for Soviet foreign policy, with the intent of defeating the United States in the Cold War.... Moscow regularly gave Hall thousands of dollars to enable the Communists in America to carry on their work.” Brennan has explained that his motivation for supporting Hall was that he (Brennan) was unhappy “with the system” and saw the “need for change.”
In 1980 Brennan earned an M.A. in government from the University of Texas at Austin. In his graduate thesis, he denied the existence of “absolute human rights” and argued in favor of censorship by the Egyptian dictatorship: “Since the press can play such an influential role in determining the perceptions of the masses, I am in favor of some degree of government censorship. Inflamatory [sic] articles can provoke mass opposition and possible violence, especially in developing political systems.”
Also in 1980, Brennan joined the CIA as an intelligence director, and in the '90s he served a stint as a daily intelligence briefer for President Bill Clinton. According to one former CIA official, Brennan in 1998 was “instrumental in preventing … an operation ... that would have killed or captured Osama bin Laden,” and instead advised the U.S. to “trust the Saudis to take care of” the al Qaeda leader.
CIA Chief Contradicts Obama On ISIS Threat, Warns Of Intensified Terror Campaign
6/16/2016 Terrorism: Less than 48 hours after President Obama reassured the nation that his strategy against ISIS is working, Obama’s CIA director told the Senate the exact opposite. ISIS is, he said, as formidable a threat as it ever was.
Obama’s remarks came after a meeting with his National Security Council, during which he spent a significant amount of time detailing all the many successes his strategy is having against the Islamic State (which Obama calls ISIL instead of ISIS), progress that he thinks is being obscured by recent terrorist attacks in the U.S. committed in the name of ISIS.

Obama Quietly Signs The "Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act" Into Law

Dec 26, 2016 4:01 PM
Late on Friday, with the US population embracing the upcoming holidays and oblivious of most news emerging from the administration, Obama quietly signed into law the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes $611 billion for the military in 2017.
In a statement, Obama said that:
Today, I have signed into law S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017 appropriations principally for the Department of Defense and for Department of Energy national security programs, provides vital benefits for military personnel and their families, and includes authorities to facilitate ongoing operations around the globe. It continues many critical authorizations necessary to ensure that we are able to sustain our momentum in countering the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and to reassure our European allies, as well as many new authorizations that, among other things, provide the Departments of Defense and Energy more flexibility in countering cyber-attacks and our adversaries’ use of unmanned aerial vehicles."
Much of the balance of Obama's statement blamed the GOP for Guantanamo's continued operation and warned that "unless the Congress changes course, it will be judged harshly by history," Obama said. Obama also said Congress failed to use the bill to reduce wasteful overhead (like perhaps massive F-35 cost overruns?) or modernize military health care, which he said would exacerbate budget pressures facing the military in the years ahead.
WHILE NO ONE WAS LOOKING: The Obama Administration Just Took 2A Rights Away From SSI Recipients

The Obama administration is in overdrive these days. They’re trying to pack as much of Obama’s agenda into his final weeks as possible.
While no one was looking, they just took gun rights away from people on SSI benefits.
PJ Media reports:
Obama Administration Yanks Second Amendment Rights from SSI Recipients
Last week, the Obama administration put the finishing touches on a new policy that would deprive recipients of disability insurance and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) of their Second Amendment rights. The administration will now characterize those citizens as “mental defectives,” thereby having their ability to own a firearm subject to the federal Gun Control Act.
Supplemental Security Income helps blind, disabled, and elderly people with little to no income. Previously, it was understood that “mentally defective” referred to one’s mental health. Citizens who have been institutionalized against their will are restricted from owning a firearm. The new definition of “mentally defective” has nothing to do with being mentally ill.

Obama Administration Finalizes Social Security Gun Ban
On Monday the Obama administration finalized a Social Security gun ban that could prevent “tens of thousands” of law-abiding elderly citizens from purchasing guns for self-defense.
Breitbart News reported this ban on July 18, 2015, when it was learned that the Obama administration was creating a ban on gun purchases that would apply to Social Security recipients who needed help managing their finances. The Los Angeles Times reported that the ban would be sweeping; that it would cover those who are unable to manage their own affairs for a multitude of reasons–from “subnormal intelligence or mental illness” to “incompetency,” an unspecified “condition,” or “disease.”
They’re just determined to undermine gun rights any way they can before they’re out of power.
Thank goodness this administration is out of business in two weeks.
