Militants Plow New Roads At Refuge, Possibly Damaging Artifacts


The armed occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge continue to use government equipment inside the complex.

One militant, who refused to give his name, again plowed dirt with a refuge bulldozer Wednesday. He wouldn’t say why he was operating the machinery, but in several places, sagebrush and vegetation had been newly removed, leaving wide patches of bare mud within the complex.

The new road connects a bunkhouse with another road.

Maybe it is time to send in the good guys and arrest the bad guys.

The Obama DOJ has shown a complete unwillingness to arrest the Bundyclowns for fear that someone might get hurt.

that is protected like a religion. You can get away with anything, as this entire situation including the Cliven Bundy episode has proven.
