Raw Video Interviews at #OregonStandoff
A friend and I drove up to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Oregon to investigate the standoff currently taking place between local and federal law enforcement agencies and a group of American patriots who are protesting the unjust and tyrannical policies of the BLM and other federal entities. Here I interview Jon Ritzheimer, a former U.S. Marine who is providing security at the Refuge. In this video, Jon answers some basic questions about what’s taking place in Oregon and some of the problems local ranchers and land-owners have had with the BLM and federal government generally.
In this video, Jon describes how the Hammonds were intimidated by the federal government after it was discovered they were consulting with Clyde and Ammon Bundy and other American patriots.
In this video, Jon responds to many of the critiques and allegations being made about the protesters, debunking the notion that the American patriots taking a stand at the Refuge are in any way violent, anti-government extremists or terrorists looking for a fight with the federal government.
In this video, Jon responds to allegations being leveled against him that he is some sort of government agent or provocateur. In my opinion, Jon Ritzheimer is a genuine American patriot (although he may be a bit misinformed on some issues).
Here I interview Pete Santilli, an alternative media personalities who has been covering the standoff in Oregon from the very beginning. Pete answers some basic questions about the standoff and the background behind it.
Here I interview LaVoy Finicum, an Arizona rancher and American patriot who is good friends with the Bundys. LaVoy has been a major player at the Oregon standoff. Following my chat with LaVoy, a press conference took place in which Ammon Bundy described his brief meeting with Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward earlier in the afternoon.
All of these videos were recorded on Thursday, January 7, 2016 at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. All of the photos I took of our trip are posted on my Facebook page in an album I created called #OregonStandoff.
On Friday, January 8, 2016, my good friend Sean and I discussed our trip to Oregon on The Realist Report. We described the background of the Hammonds’ case, detailing the tyrannical and un-Constitutional measures the mafia-style federal government is using against ranchers all across the United States. We also reviewed our trip and made some general observations about our experience. It is one radio program you don’t want to miss!
I am currently working on a detailed report for American Free Press – America’s last real newspaper – which will likely be appearing in this coming week’s edition of the print paper. Consider subscribing to AFP today if you are not already!

I’ve been following the #OregonStandoff very closely for the past week. There is so much disinformation and misinformation about the standoff emanating from both the mainstream and alternative media. This is why honest, objective, independent journalism is so vital – and rest assured, you are getting honest, objective, independent journalism from The Realist Report and American Free Press.
