Vigil for Arizona Rancher LaVoy Finicum Friday February 5th in Yreka, killed by FBI and Oregon State Police on Jan. 26, 2016 in Eastern Oregon. Pie n Politics
* Months before his murder, Lavoy Finicum, on
spoke last fall to his video camera about the
constitution and how the feds are taking
land that does not belong to them. He is the
epitome of what is happening in the West. Last
week the feds in Oregon gunned him down, his
hands up, and blasted holes in his car with
women and another man inside. None of the
ranchers (which the media labeled as
"terrorists," "radicals," "armed
antigovernment militants," "armed militia,)
fired a shot or brandished a gun. They were shot
at and ambushed. Take the time, watch and listen
to the videos. IF this administration had been
in command when the farmers and ranchers took
over the irrigation headgates in 2001, we would
have been killed, or as with Bundys, they are in
jail with NO bail. They were on their way to a
meeting where they were invited to speak, 400
awaiting them. These ranchers have been
silenced, one forever.

"Too many people often don’t understand the culture and the lifestyle of the great American West" Walden: Can't condone actions of armed protesters, Guest Commentary by Reb Greg Walden, U.S. Rep 2nd District 1/13/16
Letter on the Bundy Ranch facebook page: Hammonds and the BLM bullies, emailed to KBC News 1/6/16
Congressman Walden emotionally describes the
injustice by our federal government in the West,
and the actual small acreage of grass burned by
Hammond's backfire. You Tube, 24 minutes.
Walden compares this with the literally millions
of acres burned by out of control wildfires on
government land, yet government employees and
agencies are never held accountable when their
controlled burns and backfire on private land
gets loose. These two ranchers spent time in
prison, and now the feds decided to send them
back to prison..a 5 year term. The feds will
ultimately try to take their land as with
millions of acres they've taken from other
ranchers, forcing them into bankruptcy.
