Editor. Susan Lindauer on the Covert Report on Saturday January 9, 2016 interviews both Cyrellys Geibhendach and Quintus Dias of Manticore Group about the Burns OR situation and their use of the Committees of Safety.
REDEMPTION IN BURNS, OREGON >>
A week ago, the dramatic stand off in Burns, Oregon erupted suddenly, without warning over Dwight (73) and Steven (46) Hammond’s court order to surrender to prison for a second time, on charges of “terrorism”, as punishment for a controlled burn to offset a lightning fire which accidentally jumped over to BLM lands. What BLM decries as “arson,” ranchers consider healthy land management practices to prevent the sort of large scale forest fires that have destroyed thousands of acres of lands elsewhere in Oregon and California. The rest is history: After a public protest, Ammon and Cliven Bundy took over the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. The situation appeared so dire that Oathkeepers and liberty activities feared the protest might spark a second Waco conflagration with federal authorities. That’s when they invoked “safety committees”— and changed the whole dynamic of the confrontation, as today’s guests, Cyrellys Geibendach and “Quintas Dias” from the Liberty Community relate.. For the most part, elected officials have stayed away, but real community leaders have stepped into the leadership void, and have been hearing grievances and working out better strategies for making sure the Hammonds’ nightmare ordeal in prison doesn’t occur again. In the process, we’ve learned that 100 RANCHERS in Eastern Oregon have been pushed off their lands by BLM technocrats. It’s a lesson in successful civic action that everybody needs to hear.
Dwight Hammond (73) of Burns, Oregon is likely to die in prison because of double jeopardy and double talking on terrorism, in pursuit of civil forfeiture of ranch lands. Today’s guests, terrorism analyst Scott Bennett and Michael Jay Anderson, challenge the outrageous notion that Constitution-loving, flag-waving, cowboys in boots have been attainted as “terrorists” for espousing limitations on federal authority. This is a great show, which confronts the hypocrisy of U.S and European demands for multi-cultural support for Islamic refugees pouring over the borders into Europe, while exposing the public to real dangers and violence from young Islamic men, as witnessed in Germany, Sweden, Austria, Spain, Norway…. the list goes on. Europeans are filing permits for guns and tasers at record rates for self protection. Meanwhile, in the good ole U.S of A, Ron Paul bumper stickers and controlled burns on private ranch lands (to prevent massive wildfires in the West) are equated to acts of terrorism. Come listen to the global craziness as world leaders try to defend open refugee policies, and clamp downs on local activists. You won’t like it, either!
By the way, The Bureau of Land Management has admitted that it does not subject its own employees to arson charges when they’ve made mistakes during prescribed burns, so the punishment for the Hammonds was excessive, Hammonds’ attorney points out.
“To treat them as terrorists, we think, is horribly unjust and secondly, hypocritical,” he said. “Why does the federal government need to get more?”

PRESENTATION OF RESOLUTION
Quintus Dias. Attempts are being made to resolve this issue. Distrust of fedgov is so deep, that the presenters were armed when they presented their resolution. Sheriff Mack and others have been contacted to see if they can use their influence to peacefully end this incident. If bullets fly, we all loose. Bundy and his people have made their point. Now it is time for Oregonians to deal with this and for the Bundyites to go home, as they have succeeded in alerting people in Oregon and across America as to the nature of the problem. Americans do not like martyrs-of any kind, nor do they like hidden agendas, or being put on the spot. Bundy and his people put Oregonians on the spot. All right, they made their case. Now go home.

Defusing the Situation
More attempts to defuse the Harney Co. situation.
Note by Cyrellys Geibhendach, from email January 11, 2016.
They had a representative at the Saturday 9 2016 Committee of Safety Meeting in town. Dressed in civilian clothes at the time and very polite and courteous even beyond the short speech the rep made. That however was before the information about the fedgov sending in the professional killers SOD-X and Delta Force was widely known.
Insurgency and Tyranny
By Quintus Dias
I agree with a lot of the elements delineated in this article. Simply put, it is not enough to lead or be part of a political movement in opposition to tyranny. You must control all aspects of resistance to tyrants: economic, military, information, education, logistics, and spiritual (spiritual or soft power must be included with hard power), or fail.
Imperial France developed a very effective counter-insurgency strategy to cope with numerous insurgency movements during the heyday of the French empire in Asia and in Africa. They tested the strategy in the Spanish Peninsular War, and in North Africa during the so-called Rift wars. It worked-for a time.
This strategy can be used against tyrants equally well. What must be understood, is that it is all inclusive. You cannot ignore any of the elements listed below.
1. Military (recruitment and training)
2. Logistics (hard power: weapons, ammunition, sources of supply and manufacture and delivery of military equipements or accessories to project power)
3. Control (and development) of the local economy
5. Spiritual realm (includes hearts and minds)
6. Information (deep-rooted information and counter-propaganda)
7. Leadership (at all levels)
8. Building and maintaining alternative infrastructure (services: trash, police, taxes, waste, power, water, medicine, government, industry, education)
9. Time and fighting over generations (the fight may be over protracted time or become trans generational)
The strategy centers on the oil-drop concept. Simply, it rests on dropping a succession of oil drops representing centers of opposition to tyrants across a geographical area. Consider the geographic area a table cloth. Each drop or resistance movement contains elements 1 through 9. Once the movement has secured control of its area of operations, another drop of oil or resistance movement is dropped on the so-called tablecloth representing geography to be controlled. Ultimately, the outcome, if applied correctly is that the tablecloth or the area you wish to control becomes one big oil stain. This strategy was used by the very competent Polish resistance movement during WWII. It was also used by Ho Chi Minh and the Vietminh and later during the Vietnam war by the Viet Cong. You can also see elements of it used by American patriots during the Revolutionary war.
Moving forward, during the 1990s, elements of the same strategy was used by Constitutionalist political operatives to overturn and drive out hard core leftist groups from the Pacific Northwest. These forces destroyed Hilary Clinton’s political base in the Pacific Northwest. It worked-for some time. However, the success was not permanent as everyone went back to sleep! And this is one of our big failings. After having destroyed or defeating the enemy, Americans tend to go back home thinking the fight is over with. History shows us that the fight to remain free is never over with. NEVER!

FYI…In fedgov speaks this means “looney tunes.”
