Unless you have chosen to ignore the news, you already know who the Bundys are…

And unless you have been under a rock, then you know there was a breach by law enforcement on so many levels in Burns Oregon on the evening of 26-January-2016 — anyone saying the FBI was in the right needs to step back, sit down and listen with your mouth shut for a change.

The situation in Burns Oregon is going to affect everyone’s future and it needs to be resolved according to Constitutional law not according to any political agenda — NO political party’s agenda supersedes our Constitution.

For nearly 2 weeks, I have been following Ammon Bundy and Pete Santilli via video interviews they permitted as well following the spin on the media, especially by the Mainstream Media – nearly 40 hours worth of video and content.

I have also viewed many other videos recorded before now of LaVoy Finicum, the Bundys as well as many other ranchers/landowners — while talking leisurely as well as in meetings with the Sheriffs in Oregon…

I am hardly an expert at land management, but I am well versed in our Constitution, body language, deception, and discernment…

The Heart of the Problem

What history has proven without any reasonable doubt?

Whenever sovereignty has placed their faith into a contemptuous leader, there are more problems — and deaths — than is necessary; problems are necessary to challenge and sharpen our wits, we don’t need to be adding to them.

The heart of the matter is this:

Article I, Section 8 of our Constitution keeps the Federal government’s hands off of all land outside of the 10 square miles within D.C. unless there has been an agreement between the State legislatures and the Federal government. To date, no such agreement exists in all 50 states…

“[paragraph 1] The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

“[paragraph 17] To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings;…

Almost Immediately the FBI Rewrites the Narrative

The rewritten narrative started before the news conference began and it was published as such in FoxNews:

‘Members of the media were leaving the area near the Oregon wildlife refuge where an unknown number of armed protesters have holed up Wednesday after the FBI reportedly told some journalists the Bureau couldn’t offer “protection.” ‘

The FBI is definitely overplaying the situation and is probably under orders from someone higher up, even perhaps ‪#‎Obama‬ himself (see Cloward-Piven Strategy as well as Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals).

There are more than 50 videos online in the weeks, days, and hours leading up to this event, and from the demeanor of both parties on all the videos, the danger warning to the reporters is the FBI, not those taking a stand against government overreach.

It is HIGHLY evident in the videos that Ammon wants to keep it peaceful and wisely does not trust the government employees — many times the situation was aggravated by the FBI overreacting to the whole situation as well as instigating something that didn’t even exist.

They have been called on this several times — and you wouldn’t know it by the narrative that was rewritten by the FBI press conference today; NONE of what they did was mentioned, everything that they wanted to spin into blame on Ammon and company was the focus.

What Is Known So Far

This much we know…

  • not one shot was fired by Bundy and his crew, they all co-operated as requested
  • no one pointed a gun at the FBI
  • LaVoy had his hands and head outside the vehicle as the incident started
  • a shot was fired by the Sheriff’s Department or the FBI toward LaVoy while everyone was still in the vehicle
  • the driver started pulling away for safety only to end up in a ditch
  • LaVoy stepped out of the vehicle with hands straight up and no gun insight
  • LaVoy was then immediately shot multiple times, including in the face
  • every video on YouTube and Vimeo of Ammon Bundy, LaVoy Finicum, ALWAYS shows a peaceful conversation with the media as well as with the FBI
  • the same can not be said of the FBI with Ammon and Lavoy, they have been confrontations many times with Ammon defusing the situation and not the FBI…

The rewritten narrative is topped off with this headline everywhere:

The FBI is calling for a peaceful solution to the situation


Wasn’t it the FBI that shot first
while everyone was co-operating…???

Close Up Account of the Shooting and Murder provides this information…

“According to numerous mainstream media reports and local media outlet Oregon Live, ‘federal sources’ are telling the media that only “3 shots were fired”, but a new eyewitness testimony by one of the vehicle’s passengers tells a very different story.

“While the mainstream media is still referring to the event as “a shoot-out”, according to this latest eyewitness account at the scene – no shots were fired by vehicle passengers.

“According to eyewitness Victoria Sharp, 18 yrs old from Lakeside, Montana, who was in the same truck with Arizona rancher Lavoy Finicum, Ryan Bundy, Ryan Payne, and Shawna Cox, dozens of federal vehicles and countless agents were waiting for the group, pre-positioned at a point along on the isolated rural Highway 395, before intercepting the group and making 8 arrests, and eventually holding only 5 persons including Ammon and Ryan Bundy – were booked into Multnomah County Jail early this morning.

“Sharp confirmed that the passengers never drew weapons and attempted to get out of their vehicles before federal agents fired “at least 120 shots altogether” at the vehicle carrying her party, but not the other vehicle, a Jeep with Ammon Bundy inside, driven by private security Mark McConnell.

“Federal agents fired their first shots at passenger Ryan Payne – as he attempted to make contact with the agents by sticking his head and hands out of the window, at which point Payne got back inside the vehicle.

“Payne then exited the truck and was detained before driver Finicum advanced the vehicle further down the road before sliding into a snowbank on the side of the road.

“After crashing into the snowbank on the side of the highway, driver Lavoy Finicum then exited the vehicle, was visibly upset and with his hands in the air, before being gunned down by federal agents. Finicum was walking with his hands in the air, daring federal agents, “Just shoot me! Just shoot me” – at which point the agents shot him dead. His hands were still in the air.

“Numerous ‘red dots’ from lasers could be seen pointed at the passengers by federal marksmen, in what was described by this witness as an “ambush” by federal authorities. Sharps said, “I had 20 lasers on me when I got out of the car.”

“She also confirmed that Ryan Bundy was shot and wounded in the arm by federal agents while still inside the truck.

“At least 40 vehicles, as well as many armed federal agents were seen emerging from the surrounding forest along the highway leaving little doubt as to the scale of the operation.

“According to local media reports: “The highway was blocked for a 40-mile stretch between Burns and John Day. Police were stationed near Seneca, a small city of 200 south of John Day, with long guns. They said they didn’t know how long the roadblock would be place. Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer was there.”

Where the MSM Is Getting Their Story

The above story goes on how the MSM recorded the incident from the reporting gathered by someone who was 200 yards distance from the vehicle LaVoy was in… Think about that for a moment: 2 football fields away and the MSM is taking this witness’s story as it fits closer to what the reporter discovered after spending 2 hours talking to sheriffs and the FBI…

That still doesn’t explain the discrepancy on the number of shots – the FBI says 3, multiple witnesses say 100…

This much I do know from our own history: Any time a government agency has overreached its Constitutional boundaries, the same agency will accuse We the People of crimes that are out of context… The government agency may get exonerated but We the People have always have had our day…

One last thought…

The people in these government agencies behave as if they believe they are exempt from the final Judgement Day altogether…

Nothing could be further from the truth.

KrisAnne Hall On the Constitution

KrisAnne is a Constitutional expert (Obama? He only studied it so to destroy it, even his professor had the same view)…

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Agency

This video is from a blogger named Warrior Woman and was chosen for its depth as well as accuracy.

If unfamiliar, the BLM is an unconstitutional federal agency of unelected and unaccountable agents, who have been given powers (that they should have never been given) by Congress.

I can say unconstitutional per Article I Section 8 paragraph 17 of our Constitution — what they are doing has not been made legal by due process stipulated in Article V of our Constitution and no States have authorized their presence in their territory.

The BLM has proven itself only to only abuse and misuse taxpayer funds and national resources by grabbing land that it has no right to, in order to profit off of or pay off debts of the ranchers and landowners — debts which ironically were amassed by taxes and fees the BLM imposes (in other words, they are a second IRS).

Only by shutting this agency down, and having each state nullify its authority to operate in those areas, we can put an end to the selling off of America to the global elite.

Ammon Bundy and LaVoy Finicum

Both served honorably in the military and the only ‘criminal activity’ on record for either is against only the BLM and now the FBI for the same purpose.  Defending what is Constitutionally theirs is NOT the behavior of a criminal, but the behavior of a Patriot wanting what is due to him and not tyrannically taken by the government.

BANNED DOCUMENTARY: Conspiracy Of Silence (1993)

Conspiracy Of Silence Is a documentary film detailing an alleged child sex scandal that involved many children from a Nebraska Institution, Boys Town, and Lawrence King - or Lawrence "Larry" King.

The organized child sex parties implicated the Reagan and Bush White House during the 1980s.

King was the ringleader of the sex ring which had links to other fellow political conservatives in Washington D.C., including

  • Republican Lobbyist Craig J. Spence
  • Sen. Elizabeth Dole's Staff, along with
  • members of the financial elite of Nebraska

It features former CIA Director William Colby talking about the high-level child kidnap and sex-slave ring.

The book that was the basis of this movie can be found by clicking here.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

You can view the full oration by clicking here.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
