Since the story broke of Cliven Bundy’s sons, as well as 150 ‘militiamen’ taking over Malheur National Wildlife Refuge HQ, near Burns, Oregon – many details have been overlooked by news outlets (including this one).
But before the details of the Paiute native tribe became fully implicated, alternative news broke this story, as well as exposed extensive double-standards in the thought-processes of those who follow these stories. So hat-tip to those involved.
It Wasn’t The Fed’s Land
Steve Russell of Indian Country Today details the full history, and full-picture when Native people’s sovereignty are considered.
The Maiheur National Refuge, as well as the Burns Paiute Reservation is the remnants of the Maiheur Indian Reservation for the Northern Paiute, of 1872, Federally granted to the Paiute tribe by US President Grant. After the Reservation was established, white-settlers occupied and ate away at the land until the Bannock War in 1878, which finalized the surrender and removal of both the Paiute and the Bannok tribes to Washington state.
“The Burns Paiute Reservation is the remains of the Maiheur Reservation and the Maiheur Wildlife Refuge is an alternative use for the federal land, for those who believe the federal government exists.” writes Russell.
Bundy has claimed that the only authority over this issue is Harney County Sheriff David Ward whom the party is petitioning to bring them into ‘protective custody’.
Below is the only statement from Sheriff David Ward:
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. A collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution. For the time being please stay away from that area. More information will be provided as it becomes available. Please maintain a peaceful and united front and allow us to work through this situation.
Will Native People’s Wishes Be Considered?
As with tradition in America, the aboriginal people have either been tossed aside or not thought of when a renegade force takes action.
Ammon Bundy – Cliven Bundy’s son – appeared on video proclaiming that he and his ‘militia’ will remain not only peaceful, but will, “… be staying for several years.”
So, it’s looking as though this group will not only ignore the wishes of the Federal government, but also those who have been bound by the same entity.
It’s after midnight. From this mountaintop perch, he can still see the radioactive remains of what used to be Washington, D.C., illuminating the horizon as he exits the helicopter. The nuclear glow serves as stark proof that the intelligence community failed to foresee and prevent the worst, but at least someone was smart enough to build this mountain bunker in rural Virginia for him and his fellow spies to regroup and survive. He opens the reinforced steel door and begins his descent.
This isn’t paranoid conspiracy fiction. This exact scenario was played out this week. (more…)

[This could be a logical explanation to the recent surge in earthquakes, but does not reflect the views of WRC as a whole, use your own discernment]
Did you know that Michigan was just hit by the worst earthquake that state has seen in more than 60 years? In recent days, there has been a series of alarming earthquakes all over the United States. Of course none of these earthquakes was anything like the massively powerful quake that just crippled the entire nation of Nepal, but many are concerned that these earthquakes could be a sign of what is to come. All over the planet, seismic activity is increasing. In fact, I recently wrote about how the number of volcanoes erupting right now is greater than the 20th century’s average for an entire year. At the same time, the surface of the sun has become very, very quiet. As you will see in this article, there are scientists that link the two. It is believed that times of very low solar activity have something to do with a rise in seismic activity, and there is one scientist that is claiming that solar activity is declining faster “than at any time in the last 9300 years” right now. So what does this mean for the future of our planet? (more…)

Spokane public schools in Washington state began to audit the vaccine records of students this week to identify those who are not in compliance with the recommended required vaccine schedule.
Once identified, the students will be detained along with their parents to be re-educated about vaccines, as well as to receive free jabs to get in compliance with vaccine schedules.
I wish this was satire. (more…)
The tech business founder says CEO pay in the US is ‘way out of whack’

A chief executive has announced plans to raise the salary of every single employee at his company to at least $70,000 (£47,000) – and will fund it by cutting his own salary by 90 per cent.
Dan Price, the CEO of Seattle-based tech company Gravity Payments, gathered together his 120-strong workforce on Monday to tell them the news, which for some will mean a doubling of their salary. (more…)
