Bundy and Hammond Ranch Standoffs: Lexington and Concord 2.0


A Militia Has Taken Over A Federal Building In Oregon

Make no mistake about it Lexington and Concord 2.0
has taken place at the Bundy and Hammond Ranches,
and the 2nd American Revolution has officially begun.

State of the Nation

When government prosecutors framed the accidental burning of federal lands as an act of terrorism, they clearly made a huge mistake.  The gross error in judgment was then compounded when an appellate judge re-sentenced the Hammond Ranch father and son owners who were responsible to serve a 5 year prison term.

Not only was justice profoundly perverted, the federal agencies behind the injustices revealed themselves as the jack-booted thugs that they are.  The U.S. Federal Government has been exposed as a full-blown tyranny that will utilize acts of repression whenever necessary to keep the citizenry under its autocratic control.

Those are the basic circumstances that caused this colossal train wreck in Oregon.  They have been seen before during the Bundy-BLM standoff.  These federal agencies are no longer acting in the interest of We The People; rather, they serve the government agendas corporate interests that now act with utter impunity.  How can such an ever-intensifying predicament — between law-abiding citizens and a lawless government — not produce many more train wrecks in the future?!

Clearly, the U.S. Federal Government is drunk with power and willing to exercise it regardless of the consequences.  Its constant overreach and outright oppression have become intolerable.  Not only did the Bundy Ranch fiasco demonstrate this, the Hammond Ranch debacle is an even more egregious demonstration of a totalitarian government at its absolute worst.

The following headline about the recent Oregon federal building seizure just appeared on a major MSM news platform[1].  That such an event is even taking place in the United States of America is testimony to the notion that this country is still the “land of the free and the home of the brave”.  The FEDs must know that they have a real fight on their hands.  And that both the Bundy and Hammond government-fabricated disasters will only grow in numbers and intensity.

When both the Bundy and Hammond stories are carefully considered it is clear that numerous federal powers have been unlawfully arrogated unto itself by the U.S. Government.  With each successive administration Washington continues to accrue more powers illegally by usurping the Constitution and routinely violating State’s Rights.  In this way the FEDs are acting just like the English Monarchy did during the pre-Revolutionary Period in the 1700s.[See Addendum]

Hence, it does appear that the Wild West of 2016 is shaping up to be the “Lexington and Concord” of the Third Millennium.  The coming 2nd American Revolution is unlikely to be one with such force of arms as the American Revolution.  However, the offenses committed daily against the American people by government have reached an intolerable level.  Likewise, the ongoing assaults against the governing documents of the American constitutional republic are completely unacceptable.  As a result, the populace may have no choice but to respond with force of arms to protect themselves and their property from unprovoked federal aggression.

Given that this predicament is only getting worse by the day under the despotic Obama Administration, something is bound to flare up that challenges out-of-control federal overreach and interference.  When a presidency is transformed into a naked dictatorship, the citizenry has an obligation to set things right.

It is also indisputable that the State’s Rights have been trampled in such profound and fundamental ways that each and every state now has legal grounds to secede from the union.  Yes, it’s that bad!

Not only has Washington lawlessly neglected to enforce federal law within various states, the Executive Branch has imposed unconstitutional laws upon states which have legally rejected them.  Then, the U.S. Supreme Court judicially rubber stamps those White House initiatives which have only served the purpose of unnecessary governmental expansion and institutional aggrandizement …all occurring at the expense of constitutional rights and liberties.

In light of these threatening developments, sooner or later the American people will be forced to rein in the real lawbreakers in our midst—the U.S. Federal Government.


The 2nd American Revolution Has Begun — the modern-day version of the battles of Lexington and Concord have recently taken place at the Bundy and Hammond Ranches. From this point forward the U.S. Federal Government will determine the extent to which the American people need to demonstrate their intolerance of a growing tyranny.  The people are merely responding to necessity of maintaining the rule of law upon which the USA was established.

If the FEDs want to mix it, then have at it.  We the People have never been more willing and eager to show some fang.  The U.S. war machine has been turned against its own people and we won’t stand for it.  Therefore, it’s highly advisable that the FEDs remember that “there’s a rifle hiding behind every blade of grass”.

Author’s Note

The “Addendum” that follows offers an accurate retrospective of what the American colonists suffered at the hands of the British Empire during the Pre-revolutionary Period.  It ought to be evident that the American people are suffering a similar fate, only this time it is the U.S. Federal Government that is the serial transgressor.

If one closely examines the many instances of tyrannical government intrusion into American society since 9/11, the pattern is now well established and exacerbating.  The rampant police brutality and incessant killing of innocent civilians by law enforcement far exceed what the British oppressors did to the colonist.  Likewise, the NSA surveillance and spying on the populace was far more limited in the 1770s.  As for “taxation without representation”, that game is being played by the Congress more than at any other time of U.S. history.
