Burns Chronicles No 63 – Jason (Joker J) Blomgren — Snitch

Burns Chronicles No 63 – Jason (Joker J) Blomgren — Snitch

Gary Hunt
Outpost of Freedom
May 17 2018

Jason “Joker J” Blomgren has hit Facebook, defending his action in his interview with the FBI regarding the events at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, 30 miles south of Burns, Oregon.

A few days ago, I received a copy of the FBI form 302 regarding the report of the interview, and summated by the two FBI agents that conducted the interview.  My experience is that such a form is accurate, with regard to the information obtained.  Joker J contends that it is not accurate.  However, the knowledge of events tends to lend accuracy to lend credibility to the accuracy of those events, as certain information provided is well beyond the scope of anything that the FBI would have known, absent this interview.

I understand that there is a video of the interview that is posted on the Internet.  That would be an accurate account of the interview, and though I haven’t (and have no intention of doing) listened to the interview, I will rely upon this 302, is that is the written information that the FBI, Prosecutors, and the Court would rely upon.

Setting the stage:

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

Date of entry    02/16/2016

Jason Charles Blomgren, date of birth (DOB) April 30, 1974, Social Security Account Number (SSN) nnn-nn-nnnn, address nnnn xxxxxxxxxxx Road, Murphy, North Carolina, was interviewed at the FBI office located at 1787 W. Lake Mead Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada.  After being advised of the identities of the interviewing Agent and Task Force Officer [Chad Simkins, Kenneth Michael Mead] and the nature of the interview, Blomgren provided the following information:

It must be remembered that this is willing testimony to the FBI.  So, here, we see Joker J acting innocent.

The occupation had already been underway for several days when Blomgren arrived.  During his first day at the refuge, he was surprised to see the barricades and the armed patrols.  He didn’t want to be “a little girl” by expressing his reservations to Ammon Bundy or Ritzheimer, so he kept them to himself.  He spoke with the local townspeople who were supportive of the occupiers during his first few days on the refuge, and it “changed his heart” so he was no longer concerned by what he saw.

Blomgren described everybody at the refuge as “polite,” and he noted that he never saw any crimes being committed.

Then,

When asked to describe the hierarchy of authority at the refuge, Blomgren said he saw a chart posted at one point, but that it was later erased.

Following is the “chain of command”:

#1 – Ammon Bundy

#2         Ryan Bundy

#3         Ryan Payne                  “Rogue”

#4         John Ritzheimer           “Scrappy”

#5         Jason Patrick   :           “Clooney”

#6         Brian Cavalier              “Booda”

Then, he describes individual roles of the listed people:

Ammon Bundy was the overall leader of the occupiers, and authority reverted to his brother Ryan whenever he wasn’t around.  Ryan Payne had an important role in organizing the armed “teams” and “squads.”

Ritzheimer helped keep everyone in check and explained what to do if they were ever engaged.  Blomgren described him as “level-headed,” except for one time when he erupted after receiving numerous sex toys in the mail.  If one of the occupiers had never handled a weapon, Ritzheimer ensured they were not allowed to use any of the weapons.  He wasn’t involved in tactical training and sometimes worked as a “gopher,” picking up mail taking meals to the men who were otherwise disposed.  He also served in PSD’s, personal security details, as he escorted the Bundys to their press conferences and other meetings.  Blomgren heard that before he arrived at the refuge, Ritzheimer once took a 36 hour shift of guard duty at the front gate.

Patrick claimed to be a United States Marshal and wore a Marshal badge.  Cavalier called himself “Polar Bear” early on at the refuge and identified himself as Ammon’s personal bodyguard.  He wasn’t “officially” in the chain of command, but he gave orders when the others weren’t around.  Most of the occupiers were dismissive of Cavalier and didn’t pay much attention to him.  He had a run in one night with the Pacific Patriots Network (PPN) at the gate and ended up backing down.

He continues with other names and duties:

Following the initial hierarchy of the six individuals outlined above, there was another classification of leadership Blomgren described as being like “NCO’s,” non-commissioned officers.  They were affiliated with the “QB,” which was “the base.”  The base consisted of the metal shop where the tools and heavy equipment were stored on the refuge.  Q1 was Duane Ehmer.  The only other “Q” individual Blomgren can recall is First Name Unknown (FNU) Last Name Unknown (LNU) 1, aka “Bandaid,” who was Q5.  FNU LNU 1, further described as a short, thin male, was given the moniker Bandaid because he had a Bandaid on his face to cover wounds from picking at his acne.

Blomgren describe Ritzheimer and Payne as the “COS’s,” or Chiefs of Security.  When he first arrived at the refuge, Blomgren’s responsibilities were to transport firewood and other goods and to help receive donations from the locals.  Later, Payne organized five teams described as Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, and Echo.  These five teams were organized for the following duties:

–           Patrolling

–           Post duty – Duty lasted for 2 hours at a time

–           Cleaning and maintaining the refuge

Chopping wood

Cleaning the kitchen

–           Helping the women cook

–           Physical training

The five teams initially consisted of five individuals each, but they kept changing, as people would come and go.  Two or three teams would also be led by a squad leader.  The teams under a particular squad leader would rotate.  Under the “worst case scenario,” described as a government assault on the refuge, the teams would combine into two or three squads led by squad leaders.  The “SOP,” or Standard Operating Procedure, for the refuge was “not to engage unless engaged.”

The individuals in the five teams would often refer to each other by their unit numbers, rather than by their names.  Blomgren provided the following identification of the team members:

Al – Karl Koenigs, aka “Captain Karl”

A2 – Daryl Thorn

A? – FNU LNU 2, aka “Painter”

A? – Matt Mesenberger (sp?)

B1 – Travis Cox, aka “Pretty Boy”

B2 – FNU LNU 3, aka “Zero”

B3 – Blomgren

B? – Nathan Pieters (sp?)

B? – FNU LNU 4, described as “a Ukrainian guy”

Cl – FNU Fishbone, aka “Fish”

C2 – Jake LNU, described as one of the newer arrivals to the MNWR

C4 – Allen LNU

D1 – Originally, Thorn, this position was later assumed by Cory LNU

El – possibly Sean Anderson

Echo team was eventually merged into the other teams near the end of the occupation. The two squad leaders were designated S1 and S2. S1 was FNU LNU 5, aka “Doc,” and S2 was Carl Brammann.

Echo team was eventually merged into the other teams near the end of the occupation.  The two squad leaders were designated S1 and S2.  S1 was FNU LNU 5, aka “Doc,” and S2 was Carl Brammann.

There were additional units on the refuge consisting primarily of former military members referred to as the “QRF’s,” or Quick Reaction Forces. Several of the individuals in the Alpha through Echo teams aspired to be assigned to a QRF. Blomgren doesn’t know the names of any of the men who were assigned to the QRF’s. He sometimes saw them drilling in the dark, doing pinwheel formations and other patrolling maneuvers.

When the teams were assigned to post duty, they worked in one of three different locations: the Front Gate, the Back Gate, and the Watchtower. Front Gate and Back Gate duties required them to carry sidearms, while Watchtower duty required a long gun. A shotgun was usually left in the Watchtower along with 00 buckshot and slugs. Some individuals also carried their own AR-15s or .308s.

 

We have heard of the government’s concern over explosives. Perhaps one of the few things that Joker J did in this interview is to set the record straight as far as who knew of the explosives and who did not, as well as the concern over the explosives even being accessible.

Regarding explosives on the refuge, Blomgren stated there was a “boom boom” box containing TNT kept in “the field out past the metal shop” that contained the tools and heavy equipment. Only a few of the individuals on the refuge were aware of the box, and they mostly left it alone because they knew they were under observation by drones and planes and were afraid of the being raided if they obtained the explosives. Ammon Bundy went so far as to suggest calling the FBI to advise them of the presence of the explosives on site, but this was never done.

Even after the last occupiers were taken into custody, Joker J continued to out his “fellow” occupiers.
Blomgren provided information on several individuals currently,

staying at and around Bundy Ranch.  FNU LNU 2, aka “Painter, FNU Fishbone, aka “Fish,” and Matt Mesenberger (sp?) are currently living in a 5th wheel trailer parked on Ryan Bundy’s property located just down the road from Bundy Ranch. Blomgren believes they have marijuana in the trailer.

A “newbie” arrived at Bundy Ranch the same night Blomgren was taken into custody. He described him as a “light skinned black male” who is “all tac’d out” with an AR-15. This individual is not from the refuge, but he is providing security services for the former MNWR occupiers currently staying at Bundy Ranch. This individual is a former member of the military. He is likely staying in the trailer next to the trailer occupied by FNU LNU 6, aka “Skipper.” There was talk from FNU LNU 6 of a security detail coming out to the Bundy Ranch sometime soon.

He did help provide a little support to the government to put Duane Ehmer away for the road construction.

Blomgren wasn’t at the refuge the day the road was cut in by the bunkhouse.  He did, however, later hear Duane Ehmer talking about the “idiots” who originally cut the road one way that wasn’t as direct road they put in themselves.

Blomgren was in John Day the day the trench out in by the visitor parking area and never saw it in person.

Now, Joker J claims that he didn’t give up any critical information. Heck, he gave of more information than most, if not all, of the paid informants.

Jason was sentenced to 2 years Probation.  This is the lightest sentence given to anybody who plead or was convicted in Oregon.  He does, however, have to pay a $3,000 restitution.

Snitching has its benefit, though that should not include lying to make yourself look like you didn’t tell all, and then some.

I have always said, and I stand by it, that I will never speak ill of a patriot.  I can never, again, consider Jason Blomgren to be a patriot.

Two of Jason’s co-defendants have chosen to make comment for inclusion in this article:

Corey LeQuieu:

I met up with Joker in the Portland jail about 10 days after my arrest.  I asked Joker if he told the FBI anything and his response was no brother I didn’t tell them anything.  I thought ok cool we are good then.  It was about a month later that I got the discovery and he had already been let out on pretrial release.  There are things in his snitch report that the FBI couldn’t possibly know unless Joker ran his mouth.  He mentions that he gave Nathan Pieters a .40 cal handgun while at the refuge.  He also mentioned picking up Carl Brammann in Tennessee on his way to the refuge.  These are some of the things said by Joker that the FBI had no way in knowing unless he ran his mouth.  Now on to some other lies told by Joker.  He mentions that Jason Patrick wore a U.S. Marshal badge.  And that Jason was indeed a marshal.  Jason wore a badge that said 2nd amendment right to bear arms.  Joker also mentions that we were flying drones over the airport in burns that the FBI was using as their headquarters.  To my knowledge, we never had any drones at all.  From what I have read in this snitch report, Joker tells more than the paid informants did.

Nathan Pieters:

From his release in 2016 until April 2018, Jason Blomgren had repeatedly told me that he only spoke during the FBI interview on February 11, 2016, to “talk shit” and that his words were “twisted” and “used against” him.

He told stories of how the FBI drove him around with a bag on his head and threatened his kids and didn’t let him eat, sleep, or use the bathroom.

In March of 2018 I was shown discovery documents that proved Blomgren not only lied about talking to the FBI but that he also told lies about others in an attempt to cause an assault on the Bundy Ranch when he told the FBI that there was drugs in Ryan Bundy’s fifth wheel trailer at the Bundy Ranch.

The entire time, Blomgren begged for donations to support himself, which he clearly does not deserve.

When confronted with the truth, Blomgren attempted to lie his way out of it and eventually attempted to shift attention to the equally dishonorable actions of his fellow snitch, Geoffrey Stanek.

Jason Blomgren is a rat.
* * * * *
Addendum:

I misunderstood my source. The source us trying to secure one of Blomgren.

I understand that Blomgrern claims that my article was not based upon a FBI form 302. This is a blatant attack on my reputation and the fact that I won’t write an article unless I have proof of what I write.

So, let’s put to rest that accusation and who the liar is in this current discussion.

OMD Audio Recording Series – Audio #10 (151206)

Outpost of Freedom
May 6, 2018

These audios are being released because the government misrepresented, by cookie-cutting phrases, and presenting out of context statements in their documentation. The documents are “Governments Sentencing Memorandum” (docket 2519) and “Review of OMD Advisory Board Meeting Recordings” (docket 2519-1), which are for the sentencing hearing on Ryan Payne, who plead in the Malheur Refuge case. Audio #10 (151206) at http://www.outpost-of-freedom.com/audio/151206-OMD-AB%20meeting.mp3

It must be understood that what OMD AB was doing was gathering information to present an accurate account of circumstances surrounding an event of possible interest to the patriot community. We have all seen people asking for help from patriots. Some have merit, some don’t. However, most often, you have only the explanation given by the person asking for help. As we progress through these audios, you will see that people have requested help, but an investigation resulted in finding misrepresentation of certain facts.

As with any brainstorming session, all possibilities, even to the extreme, should be considered, as they aid the thought process in finding the most viable solution. Often the discussion tend toward the hypothetical, as an exercise in the evaluation process.

Audio #10 – pages 65-77 of the 91 pages.

Payne wants to expand the approved mission of OMD. He discusses the hooting in San Bernardino as justification. He suggests that we are in a state of War in a state of nature. He suggests that OMD is an organization to initiate action rather than a communication organization. – that OMD should be morphed into an organization that takes the lead in initiating action – if a threat is perceived.

Payne then suggests that the Hammond issue is a greater cause. He mentions the previous prosperity of Harney County. He point out the gross reduction of ranching and absolute loss of the timber industry. He then addresses the influx of the entitlement population and the animosity between the traditional population and the dependent population, and the effect on the political process. He points out that the ex-ranchers and ex-loggers having now taken jobs working for the government, to survive.

Hunt rebuts, pointing out the number of other problem in the country. Hundreds of people would love to have the attention – while Payne is concentrating, perhaps obsessed – with the Hammond matter. Hunt points out that in the nineties, patriots went to help people that didn’t want their help. It had a detrimental effect on the patriot community. That dealing with h Hammonds is not going to hang anything but the single incident. The government would continue to push people off of their land. That the picture is far greater than a single incident.

Payne suggests, rightfully, that if the Hammonds wanted help, that the community could be brought together. He suggests that he had already begun to bring the community together. Hunt agrees that if the Hammonds want to support the effort, that he would have Hunt’s support.

Payne acknowledges that he is NOT acting in the capacity of OMD, rather on his own — in the Hammond matter. Payne then asks Dickenson (informant) to muster his resources to support efforts along the line of Payne’s ideals. Payne also suggests that if the Hammonds see the support of the community, that they would join in (eventually proven to be incorrect).

Dickenson asks what Payne needs from him. Payne replies that he wants unity and wants Dickenson to muster his resources to support to the cause of the Hammonds. Dickenson wants specifics of the Hammond matter. Payne replies that he has other than OMD resources to support the Hammond matter.

Hunt points out that all of the information (documents) is given out in Ammon Bundy’s words, though Hunt had not been provided the original the original information (paperwork). Payne says that there is a reason Hunt am not being given the original information, Payne won’t explain why that information is not being given to Hunt.

Miscellaneous discussion

 

Note: Dickenson’s appearance of support (kissing up to Payne) might indicate that he and Payne talked outside of meetings and Payne may have divulged the plan of the Refuge takeover, which would have been passed on to the government, explaining why the Refuge was unoccupied and the keys left on a desk — to allow the takeover to be unopposed, for political purposes and to entrap and punish participants.

Audio #9 – pages 55-64 of the 91 pages.

Payne begins by stating that he will be full-time in Oregon. Hunt asks for affirmation that OMD is not a part of the Ammon Bundy operation.

Payne reports that Sheriff Ward is working with the other side. Report on the right to respond to force with force. Talk about over watch of Hammond property and surveillance. Call for public meeting in support of Hammond (feel out community). Appeal to County Board to support Hammonds if sufficient response. January 4 is date set.

Hunt asks if there is support for using their property. Payne reports that Hammonds are incommunicado. They are in fear for their live sand the life of Ammon Bundy.

Hunt asks about OathKeeper support. P:ayne re[port that Stewart is avoiding responding. OathKeeper members are willing to respond. PPN (Pacific Patriot Network) is still active and some members will participate, but leadership still in opposition to a “brazen plan of action”.

Dickenson (informant) want to know more about the Plan, otherwise the AB holds their position of non-support. However, if a pre-emptive attack on patriots would warrant OMD would jump in, in support of patriots. All in favor, Payne abstains. (Note: This may be why the government remained in Burns until January 26, since Dickenson was passing this information on to the government.)

Hunt and Ritzheimer discussion Ritzheimer’s recent trip to New Hampshire and through New York (See Rogue Infidel – A Working Vacation to New Hampshire ). Other discussion about Ritzheimer’s discussion with FBI about his activities re: Muslims.

Foley talks about his border operations and problems with Facebook. Ritzheimer wants to spend some time with the border ops. Payne intends to go to border ops when the Oregon event is over.

Payne reports that Melissa Diegel problem is still under research. He will continue researching. Foley says that Oklahoma has a child taking problem going on.

Back to Hammond Ranch. Payne is talking about email problems in Oregon He mentions Hammond Ranch and Dickenson asks, You’re going to Hammond Ranch?”. Payne then talks about the BLM wanting to take land from Ranchers in-the Malheur area. Ritzheimer raises the question of a “shoe of force”, bringing thousands of patriots to surround the Hammond Ranch. Payne talks about the fear in the Sheriff at the Hammond Ranch with hundreds (estimate 300-500) of patriots in the wash. Payne suggests that if they can get the citizens of Harney County start an uprising, that patriots can be called in.

Audio #8 – pages 43-54 of the 91 pages.

Payne starts with explaining that he and others including PPN ( Pacific Patriot Network) met to discuss the Hammonds, if they chose not to turn themselves in. PPN was pitching their position Brooke Agresta (PPN) basically implied that Payne was a badguy. She carried that message throughout, including a subsequent meeting with the Sheriff.

Same group met with the Hammonds. Steven Hammond did not attend. Dwight said that Steven was content with going to prison and then get on with his life. Dwight, however, still tended towards resisting. Dwight and Suzie (his wife) would discuss it with Steven.

Agresta said that if the Hammonds didn’t want help, then there was nothing to be done. One member of PPN did not agree with Agresta. Dwight said he would not opposed protective action.

Next was a conference call with Tea Party Patriots and other organizations. PPN wanted to file with the Supreme Court. That was deemed impractical. Discussion then pursued the protective solution. There appeared to be a lack of support for that option.

PPN was having a conference call. Payne was going to join that call once the OMD meeting was over.

Then a meeting was held with the Sheriff. Same people in attendance, along with Joe Rice, who lead the Sugar Pine Mine operation. [An operation that probably would not have been supported by OMD, once a background brief had been prepared.] Except for Payne and Ammon Bundy, the others wanted to work within the system. Sheriff had received many emails and phone calls in support of the Hammonds and that the government had also been pressuring him. The Sheriff has not yet made a decision. If he did not decide to make a decision, then his position would be in opposition to the Hammonds.

In a follow up, Payne said that PPN was asserting that they would be in charge with the operation at the Hammond meeting. They suggested that Payne was wanting to start a war. In the meeting with the Sheriff, the same was asserted. That if there was an action that they would be in charge and would do the bidding of the Sheriff. PPN then held a private meeting with the Sheriff. The expounded the same theme. Then Payne had a private meeting and the Sheriff said that the government’s line was the same as the PPN’s line. The Sheriff said that he didn’t believe that was Payne’s intention.

Continued discussion within the OMD-AB (Q&A) getting details of meetings. Theoretical discussion of different circumstances. Dickenson (informant) seems supportive of action, without support of the Hammonds.

[The above was a report of events by Payne. It was not a position that OMD was involved in or supportive of. It was strictly informational.]

Prior Knowledge of Potential School-Based Violence

Students are their best Safeguard

A 15 page Report prepared by the United States Secret Service and the Department of Education

This Report places the blame squarely on the Students who are trying to blame it on the guns Some excerpts from that Report,  based on by the Safe School Initiative (SSI) study:

That there are focus points based on the SSI study,

  • Incidents of targeted violence at schools rarely were sudden impulsive acts.
  • Most attackers did not threaten their targets directly prior to advancing the attack.
  • There was no useful or accurate “profile” of students who engaged in targeted school violence.
  • Most attackers had difficulty coping with significant losses or personal failures. Moreover many had considered or attempted suicide.
  • Many attackers felt bullied, persecuted or injured by others prior to the attack.
  • Most attackers had access to and had used weapons prior to the attack.
  • Despite prompt law enforcement responses, most shooting incidents were stopped by means other than law enforcement interventions.

The topics covered were:

  • What information was known by the bystander in advance of the attack?
  • What relationship did the bystander have to the perpetrator(s)?
  • Did the bystander share the information he or she learned of the planned violence with others?
  • Was the bystander alone in his or her knowledge of the planned attack or was there discussion with other bystanders? If there was discussion among several bystanders, was there an agreement among them as to whether to report the information?
  • How much did personal characteristics of the bystander as compared with issues related to the school climate influence the bystander’s decision regarding whether to come forward with the information?
  • What were the relationships and levels of interpersonal connections between the bystander and responsible adults?
  • In retrospect, how did the bystander feel about his or her decision regarding whether to take action? What advice would the bystander give others?

Why the students didn’t report what they knew:

  • The student made the threat or voiced the plan repeatedly and over a long period of time, had been engaged in what might be considered attention-seeking behaviors, and had made peculiar comments.
  • The described threat seemed unbelievable because it was so extreme. In one case, a bystander who had overheard some of the conspirators discussing their plans in great detail “didn’t think anything of it . . . [didn’t] think they would really do it” and therefore the bystander did not tell anyone.
  • The student’s tone when making the threat did not seem serious or it was thought he was joking. For instance, bystanders made comments such as “he kept eating his pizza while discussing the event” and “he’d say it violently but then laugh about it.”
  • The threats or statements were overt, repetitive, and/or clearly overheard by school personnel. This led the students to mistakenly believe that the threateners (and therefore the threats) were not serious.

What is the school’s  role in solving the problem?

  • Encourage students, staff, faculty, parents, and others to report all apparent threats or threatening or disturbing behaviors.
  • Provide several options for the reporting of threats, including reporting anonymously if necessary.
  • Ensure that all those who report a threat or threatening situation will be treated with respect and that the information they provide will be closely guarded.
  • Emphasize that the school will take appropriate action on all reports and will, within the confines of privacy laws, provide feedback to the reporting student that the information was received, and that appropriate action was taken.
  • Articulate what types of student information and knowledge can be shared, with whom it can be shared, and under what conditions it can be shared.
  • Be clear as to who is responsible for acting on information received regarding threats.
  • Where the law permits, include law enforcement and mental health officials in the review process.
  • Track threats over time so that the information collected regarding threats can be used in the decision-making process.

So, though there may be a problem with law enforcement response, the solution lies in identifying the potential problem, and addressing a solution before the problem manifests’ itself.

Those students in Washington, state capitols, or anywhere else, should be at their school and addressing the problem where the solution is readily available.

The entire report goes into much greater detail.

November 15, 2015 –

Payne has not yet completed the Response Matrix.

The Mellissa Diegel matter is still under review.

Regarding the Hammond matter, referring to the previous meeting, Door #3 [See Audio #6.] was closed. Sheriff Ward is getting hammered from the other side. Payne believes that the government has turned him against the Hammonds. Sheriff Ward believes that if a Grand Jury were empanelled, they would rule against the Hammonds. If the Grand Jury rules on behalf of the Hammonds, he would override the Grand Jury decision. Payne and Ammon will continue to exert pressure on Sheriff Ward.

Suzy Hammond expressed a concerned that should Dwight and Steven resisted, they would be shot by the government. Dwight confirms this. They indicate that the decision is Stevens since the have given the ranch to him.

Ritzheimer wants articles that he can put out. Hunt wants documentation that was omitted from a letter that was sent to Ward. Payne says that Ammon Bundy left it out to make Ward come to him. [My concern was that Ammon is not willing to provide documents to OMD-AB.]

Foley has begun putting information out regarding the Hammonds, without reference to OMD. Ritzheimer will refer people to Foley’s page.

Continued discussion on background of the Hammonds.

Discussion on the webpage, mail list, and visits. Payne reports that it seems that OMA and OMD have been seen as favorably. WRSA (Western Rifle Shooters Association),with one exception, has been favorable.

Discussion of the William Wolf and how he was set up. It took the rifle and was arrested within 5 minutes. The charges included failure to pay the taxes. How can you pay taxes in a parking lot? Everything about Wolf’s case show that it was a setup, because of his political leanings. Charles Dyer, Robert Beecher, and Kevin “KC” Massey were also identified as political prisoners.

Discussion of the effect of OMD participation in relieving the government of political prisoners. It was unanimously agreed that such activity would not be favorable, at this time, of such activity.

Discussion of Diegel. Mother is acting by Munchausen by proxy, whereby she creates an indication of disease and seeks treatment, primarily to draw attention to herself. This is the government argument of the situation and why the government took her children. Payne spoke with her and she said that her computer had been hacked and the information was lost. The only evidence that she had was emails that she had written. We don’t have enough information to make a decision. Payne says he will continue to pursue getting the records that she claims to have and has failed to provide. Ritzheimer thinks that pursuing the matter would be a waste of time. Payne will continue pursuing seeking information.

Dickenson (informant) wanted an update on 10,000 refugees to New Orleans. Hunt and Ritzheimer have doubts as to the accuracy of the reports. Payne and Ritzheimer will contact their sources to get verification as to what the real status is.

Payne talks about courses of action with regard to Muslim refugees coming into the country. Explains that the role of the militia is to protect (defend) the country and he wants to set up a program for militia around the country to monitor the flow of refugees into the country.

Back to New Orleans, discussion of a covert access to information. Dickenson (informant) probably passed this rather secretive exercise directly to the government.

Continued discussion of the refugee situation.

Then, the Task List status is discussed. Rather than detailing these discussion, I will leave it to the listener to following the varied discussions.

Meeting adjourned.

These audios are being released because the government misrepresented, by cookie-cutting phrases, and presenting out of context statements in their documentation. The documents are “Governments Sentencing Memorandum” (docket 2519) and “Review of OMD Advisory Board Meeting Recordings” (docket 2519-1), which are for the sentencing hearing on Ryan Payne, who plead in the Malheur Refuge case.

It must be understood that what OMD AB was doing was gathering information to present an accurate account of circumstances surrounding an event of possible interest to the patriot community.  We have all seen people asking for help from patriots. Some have merit, some don’t. However, most often, you have only the explanation given by the person asking for help. As we progress through these audios, you will see that people have requested help, but an investigation resulted in finding misrepresentation of certain facts.

As with any brainstorming session, all possibilities, even to the extreme, should be considered, as they aid the thought process in finding the most viable solution. Often the discussion tend toward the hypothetical, as an exercise in the evaluation process.

November 8, 2015 –

Melissa Diegel was discussed first. Nothing yet confirmed, except that her children were taken by the Hospital and turned them over to CPS (Children’s Protective Services).

The Fourth Door for the Hammond, being the possibilities of defending the Bundys rather than the Hammonds. The proposal came from Ammon Bundy, but he has not given any suggesting as to how it would work. Awaiting his proposal.

Back to Diegel, Children were supported by the mother using Child Support Payments. No government funds used. Even canceled food stamps when the children were taken. Continued discussion about children being taken by parents, from what we know, there is no justification in this case.

Discussion of background checks. Hunt has doubts about the thoroughness of the “volunteer” check that we are using. It was decided to go ahead with the limited background check that had been suggested.

Dennis (informant) wants to make a Power Point on any project that we approve. It was agreed to use Power Points.

Discussion of the Webpage. Page is ready to go online when the Press Release goes out. Discussion of what articles would be listed under the “Articles” button on the webpage. Design of Webpage approved.

November 5, 2015 – First Session (5a)

Awaiting Ryan’s report of meeting with Dwight Hammond.

Discussion about a Grand Jury. This is not the ones that you are familiar with. This Grand Jury come out only with a probable cause Indictment, and is a function of Committees of Safety (http://www.committee.org/LibertyTree/index.php?t=thread&frm_id=35&rid=2&S=efc0f24803c08e906e68ca1f44a0e684 ).

Discussion on the Hammond matter. Ryan and Ammon Bundy met with the Hammonds. Hammonds confirmed that the government wants to take the Hammond’s ranch. Hammonds indicated that they didn’t want support from anybody, Dwight Hammond was not present. Steve Hammond is willing to go to prison.

In a previous between Ryan with Dwight Hammond, he, like Steve is willing to go to prison.
Letter from the Bundys suggest that we have an obligation to defend the Hammonds, whether they want help, or not.

Then discussion about a meeting with the Sheriff (Ward). Ward wanted to hear about what happened at Bundy Ranch. Ward stated that he would not allow the federal government to take weapons, though he would not allow violence, of any sort, in his county.

Ammon’s scenario was presented to Ward. Ward would not comment on the subject.

Lengthy discussion of whether OMD can take an action without the consent of the Hammonds. Discussion ensues over the right of choice of the Hammonds to want our help, or not. (This demonstrates the purpose of OMD with a larger board.)

November 1, 2015

Ryan Paine gives feedback on those who have been waiting to have such an entity to review possible situations that warrant attention.

Jon Ritzheimer to fill the missing seat (#5 was recommended via email during the preceding week.). Dennis (informant) agrees. Discussion of Ritzheimer continues. A discussion regarding the background check we are using comes into the discussion. A vote was taken, unanimous, that Jon Ritzheimer fills the fifth seat, his duties to be Planning.

While waiting for Jon to call in, Ryan and Dennis discussed military planning.

Jon called in. He affirmed that he understood the purpose of OMD. Dennis makes a point of wanting to get to know Jon better in private discussions. Discussion continues with clarification and other matters with Jon.

Back to the Agenda, Cliven Bundy is to be contacted regarding a training event being held on his property.

Red River, previously discussed, the owners having state support regarding their ownership of the questionable lands. Contact will be made by Ryan, through Cliven,  then I will be brought in for backgrounding the problem. Discussion regarding Oathkeepers and the apparent conflict in interest was discussed.

The Refugee issue is next in the discussion. The issue is still a general discussions as to how to implement a plan that can be used in any states to develop an intervention plan.

Next is LaVoy Finicum. LaVoy is still interested in OMD support. The question of Booda’s role I briefly discussed. The assumption is that he will be Personal Protection for LaVoy, which would not impede the OMD role.

Next is Phil Lyman (Recapture Canyon). Lyman is awaiting sentencing. Background was given to bring Jon up to speed. This was not an OMD (pre OMD formation) operation, and OMA (Jerry Bruckhart refused OMA support. Ryan did participate and OMD was looking at support for Lyman.  The OMD participation was whether Lyman was going to resist arrest.

Cleaves is net. Ryan is going to make initial contact.

Veterans on Patrol. Lewis has acquired larger tents, which would be available to us. Logistically, they have sufficient food supplies.

Islam is discussed. Does OMD have a role if a municipality doesn’t want a mosque but the federal government wants to force it on them does, OMD have a role? Hunt suggests that we begin discussions of where the OMD role would come into play. A discussion ensues on the subject of Islam. It is determined that this discussion should be continued, at a future date.

The Syrian Refugee subject is brought back up. The question is whether the real refugee problem is a trickle rather than the apparent flood of refugees. Montana is attempting to create a Committee of Safety that would direct the militia to conduct interrogations of refugees, as had been previously discussed. Jon suggests that we encourage local government to refuse accepting refugees. Ryan compares Missoula with California, with regard to accepting Syrian Refugees. This is balanced against Jon’s recommendation of encouraging the municipality to refuse accepting the refugees.

Close Order drill is discussed.

Status of OMD, in response to Jon’s question. It is explained why there by no legal recognition of OMD. Ryan explains that many who will follow OMD may never make public their association with OMD.
