    Better yet, when Cliven Bundy arrived at the Portland Airport, on the way to visit the others in jail, he was arrested and charged with the same crimes as his sons, except for the 2014 stand off.

    Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who touched off one armed showdown with federal authorities and applauded another started in Oregon by his sons, was arrested late Wednesday at Portland International Airport and faces federal charges related to the 2014 standoff at his ranch.

    Bundy, 74, was booked into the downtown Multnomah County jail at 10:54 p.m.

      The last four holdouts have promised to surrender in the morning.

      UPDATE 10 p.m.: The live stream that broadcast online what appears to be the last stage of the refuge occupation stopped after more than five hours. The phone feed ended as the occupiers headed to their night camp, preparing to surrender Thursday morning. They said they have a promise that the encircling FBI agents would leave them alone overnight.

      BURNS – FBI agents in armored vehicles moved in Wednesday night on the last four occupiers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, hemming them into their rough camp and insisting they put down their guns and surrender.
      FBI tactical teams had quietly moved into the refuge compound Tuesday night, entering the buildings undetected by the occupiers. They apparently were in the buildings through the day Wednesday before agents moved against the encampment.

      The occupiers talked over each other as the call moderator, identified on the Youtube feed as Gavin Seim, tried to sort out the identities and relayed calls for help to outside parties.

          Its what so many of these TV-educated nimrods don't realize: the law can be very, very patient.
          Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

            The Bundy family, nothing but a bunch of self righteous, entitled jerks that think the world revolves around the Bundys. It's about time the Feds put Bundy senior in the pockey.

              I wonder what laws Nevada has concerning Felons possessing weapons are? At the end of this all of them might want to read up on them.

                No joke. There is a vast quantity of fecal matter heading their way, and if they were smart they would find a good lawyer and hang on his every word.

                    People are tweeting from the live phone feed from the scene. Some real gems from those about to be arrested.

                    From the one named Sean:

                    "We were hoping to stop at Denny's" "And they need to pay for it because they're using our tax dollars"

                    OK, want Denny's on the way to jail

                    Another one from Sean:

                    "thinks they should be honorary Marines for what they've gone through"

                    OK... got it.

                        You know, a reasonable person might have a problem with that, how it took 2 years to come up with the charges, 2 years for someone to figure out that he'd broken a lw.

                        Most Americans Commit Three Felonies a Day — and Here's What Happens If They Get Caught


                        The United States prison system is a blight for the country. The International Center for Prison Studies estimates that America imprisons 716 people per 100,000 citizens (of any age). That compares (unfavourably) with Russia (484), China (121) and Iran (284). Over two and a half million American children have a parent behind bars. A whopping 60% of those incarcerated in U.S. prisons are non-violent offenders, many of them in prison for drug charges (overwhelming African-Americans). Even while our crime rate has fallen, our incarcerated population has climbed.

                        Now, I realize that some people here think that all Ranchers are evil and that for purely racist reasons want everything they own to be confiscated and redistributed... big whoop, its old news. Can we skip that part this time?
                        But reasonable people should be a little worried that the Fed can nail anyone it wants to at any time for purely political reasons. The weaponization of the IRS was just the tip of the iceberg.

                        Have you figured out the charge yet? It is a catch-all that would make you laugh if it wasn't such a Soviet style catch-all.
                        It is "interfering with a Federal officer"
                        And if you don't know how the Govt clique that is pushing this can abuse that law, then take a gander at these-

                        Remember that?

                        Business as usual.
                        But I think the real lesson here is, if you want to do the civil disobedience thing, you MUST have thousands of bodies out there. In that case the Feds run in fear, wetting their pants all the way back to Mordor on the Potimac.... as was the case in Fergeson, Baltimore and so many other places.

                          I will simply put this out there again.

                          Historical precedent is relevant.


                          There is a reason the Republicans the great Ronald Reagan and Don Mulford signed off the Mulford Act and made open carry illegal throughout California.

                          The event that caused such a law was the illegal occupation of a State building by an armed militia.

                          By that precedent, the Oregon occupiers at minimum must be arrested, otherwise it is known as clear bias.

                            All but one of the armed occupiers of a US wildlife sanctuary in the state of Oregon have surrendered, according to a live audio broadcast from the scene.
                            The militia took over the refuge on 2 January protesting about government "interference" in the lives of ranchers in the western United States.
                            Three weeks later one of the protestors was shot dead when the FBI and police arrested the leaders of the occupation.
                            David Fry, 27, remains holed-up, saying he was feeling "suicidal".
                            Mr Fry, who is from Blanchester, Ohio, said he "will die a free man".
                            "Liberty or death," he declared, adding: "I declare war against the federal government because they have been trampling on my first amendment rights."
                            Just before 10:00 local time (18:00 GMT), three of the remaining four militia, Sandy Anderson, 47 of Riggins, Idaho; her husband Sean Anderson, 48, and Jeff Banta, 46, from Elko, Nevada surrendered and walked into the custody of the FBI.
                            The four had spent their last night at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, camping in the grounds around 30 miles south of the city of Burns on the snowy desert plains of Harney County in north-eastern Oregon.
                            On a live broadcast streamed on the internet, Mr Fry described how the others had walked out with hands in the air, holding an American flag.

                              Cliven Bundy wasn't there.
                              He is related to one that was arrested weeks ago... oh.
                              So its okay to go after family members for Political reasons now?
                              That's just hideous.
