Author’s Addendum: I would like to at add some of my thoughts to this article. There has been a huge reaction of fellow patriots who are worried about being indicted and arrested. Please know that, so far, there have been NO substantiated arrests this weekend to indicate that they are moving forward in this manner. If you hear of any, please email me immediately with the details at Jason@oathkeepers.org and/or post them to the comments of this story.
I thought it was important to get this information out sooner rather than later as it was coming from a trusted, reliable source and had the possibility of impacting so many of us (including myself and so many of my friends). But in the end it is just information, not intelligence. So at this point we must treat it as hear say.
Again, if this does go live, please let me know and I will get it out there ASAP. Until then, I would urge everyone to remain calm and steadfast. Fear is what they want us to be feeling. I apologize for putting it out before it has been more thoroughly vetted, the last thing I want to be is a fear monger.
I first met Nevada State Assemblywoman, Michele Fiore, at Bundy ranch. She has been part of the mix, and fighting the good fight, since that fateful day in Nevada when the BLM accosted activists at Bunkerville with AR-15’s, attack-dogs, and tasers.
We have come along way since then. It has been a rollercoaster ride that has had both its exhilarating victories and painful defeats, we have seen friends and patriots both killed and arrested. Through it all, Michele has gone above and beyond the call of duty, playing the part of advocate, negotiator, and defender.
It is vitally important that we support elected officials who are awake to the issues of Constitutional freedoms and have them be a part of these events as they showcase the credibility of the movement. They are able to reach a demographic of the population that we may not have access to, ourselves. They can also effect the local law making process in very dynamic and positive ways.
In this interview we speak with Fiore about 3 very important topics to the Liberty Movement as a whole. First, we discuss the unexpected blessing of labor union attorneys stepping forward to help represent our “political captives,” as Michele calls them. The unions, themselves, have had a number of activists arrested under similar circumstances and realize if the powers that be were left unchallenged, it would set the precedent to allow any activists to be incarcerated for the rest of their lives. What’s more, they have offered this legal representation free of charge. This is incredible news for all of us that have friends and family members behind bars.
We then move to the subject of COWS (Coalition of Western States), a coalition of legislators, statesman, and patriots united to stop unconstitutional actions against United States citizens, and the trolling by the mainstream media and other front groups that has suddenly gone into high gear.
To finish this short interview, we move on to the troubling rumors of another round of indictments being handed down. Allegedly, starting tonight through early next week, more of our fellow patriots have the possibility of being rounded up. This time they are looking to bring in those that had brought a gun to the Bundy Ranch standoff. This is particularly troubling as it could potentially include hundreds (if not thousands) of good Americans that put their work, families, and lives on hold, to travel to Nevada in the hopes of keeping another Ruby Ridge or Waco did not happen. This is information Michele received from Pete Santilli’s attorney at this week’s proceedings.
Please take the time to watch this interview and share it with your like minded friends and family.
