VIDEO — Oath Keepers Site Taken Offline after New Call to Stand at Bundy Ranch
Apr 16, 2014
*UPDATE*: A brand new message sent out by Stewart Rhodes as we were writing this says that the OathKeepers.org server, along with thousands of others, went down this morning caused by a problem at the data center that houses their site, and in the meantime, they are using an alternative site at oath-keepers.blogspot.com.
After sending out a new call to action and renewed call for all Oath Keepers to stand watch at the Bundy Ranch, the site OathKeepers.org has been taken offline.
In the urgent message, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes wrote:
“NOTE: First, at the moment things are quiet here. 99% of the rumors on the internet are either blatantly false or wildly inaccurate. No strong presence of federal agents has been seen. Remnants of BLM’s recent sojourn here are still present, such as the lights they had put up at their “field-headquarters” and no doubt we are under surveillance of all kinds, but there is no overt, visible massing of federal law enforcement.
We are, however concerned that the domestic enemies of the Constitution that infest the federal government might try to take advantage of folks going home, and attempt to make a move on the Bundy family. We feel certain that they will want to try again at some point, perhaps in a different way, even perhaps by executing a dynamic entry raid to attempt to arrest the Bundys. And we have heard that this is being discussed, though I have not been able to directly confirm it. But it is a real risk.
Therefore, to prevent such a raid, or to at least throw a monkey wrench into any such plans and make it more difficult for them, we’re doing the following:
1: We are calling on all Oath Keepers who can possibly get here to come to the Bundy Ranch to serve as volunteers on an ongoing, rotating watch. That is not because there is any great emergency, but is a preventative measure – sort of like doing a rotation on the DMZ.
2: A rotating vigil of state legislators and current serving sheriffs at the ranch. This second part of our plan is a continuation of what we’ve already been doing. Oath Keepers helped facilitate a number of legislators from several Western States traveling to the Bundy Ranch this past week. Sheriff Mack’s Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA.org) helped ensure that some real-deal constitutional Sheriffs were also present on the side of the Bundy family.”
The timing of site’s take down is curious to say the least considering it falls not only on the heels of the Oath Keepers newest call to action, but also on news spilling out all over the place that there are mass graves for the Bundy’s cows killed by BLM and Senator Harry Reid’s corrupt multi-billion-dollar dealings with Chinese energy companies over the real reason they want the Bundy’s off that Nevada land in short order.
There are people concerned the situation unfolding out there could turn into the next Ruby Ridge or Waco Siege; however, those happened back in the pre-Internet days, when the government and its puppet media could more easily shape the narrative however they wanted to. Now we have instant communication and when it comes to a situation like this, where the government is trying to run amok all over the Constitution, We the People have to keep talking.
