The Hammonds and my family have been friends since the 1800’s. In no way shape or form could they or can they ever be considered terrorists...and setting a self-protective back fire in ranching country is not a terrorist act.
The BLM must have been under orders from someone higher on the chain to “get” the Hammonds. The real job of people who have the capacity to get the Hammonds out of jail is to find the person(s) who want whatever the Hammonds own. What is it on the Hammond’s property that is that valuable? Would be interesting to get a geological survery, wouldn’t it?
The shooting of the rancher by that FBI agent is a travesty. But we already know the FBI is an honest broker, right?
And the Oregon judicial system is another travesty. Where did all those so called impartial judges come from...California I’d bet.

Uranium on BLM-Administered Lands in OR/WA
In September 2011, a representative from Oregon Energy, L.L.C. (formally Uranium One), met with local citizens, and county and state officials, to discuss the possibility of opening a uranium oxide (yellowcake) mine in southern Malheur County in southeastern Oregon. Oregon Energy is interested in developing a 17-Claim parcel of land known as the Aurora Project through an open pit mining method. Besides the mine, there would be a mill for processing. The claim area occupies about 450 acres and is also referred to as the New U uranium claims.
On May 7, 2012, Oregon Energy LLC made a presentation to the BLM outlining its plans for development for the mine.
The Vale District has agreed to work with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on mitigation for the New U uranium claims, which are located in core sage grouse habitat. Although the lands encompassing the claims have been designated core, the area is frequented by rockhounds and hunters, and has a crisscrossing of off-highway vehicle (OHV) roads and other significant land disturbance from the defunct Bretz Mercury Mine, abandoned in the 1960s.
However, by the fall of 2012 the company said that it was putting its plans for the mine on hold until the uncertainty surrounding sage grouse issues was resolved.
The Hammond Legal File, is a 682 page legal history of the Hammond familys decades long fight over land rights with the BLM and Department of Fish and Wildlife in Harney County, Oregon. Nestled in the pages was a letter that Santilli dubbed, The Mineral Letter and has never been seen until now.
The letter was addressed to Chad Karges, head of The Department of Fish and Wildlife whose office is located at the Refuge. While the letter did not reveal a clear connection between Malheur and Uranium One, we did find it revealed that as of 2012 the mineral rights surrounding and inside the property itself, belonged to 2 private investment firms. That information coupled with Uranium Ones Facebook post does open the door for possibility.
From the ‘Oregon Shootout’ link:
What he does point to, however, is a U.S. Bureau of Land Management notation thats titled, Uranium on BLM-Administered Lands in OR/WA, that talks about a May 2012 presentation from Oregon Energy LLC to develop a uranium oxide mine, in concert with the Department of Fish and Wildlife, in southern Malheur County in southeastern Oregon, Rappoport wrote.
The much-publicized standoff between Oregonian residents and law enforcement has taken place by the Mahleur National Wildlife Refuge.
Rappopport went on: What does this have to do with Hillary and Bill Clinton? The short version is: theres a case to be made that they, through Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation, facilitated the sale of Uranium One to Putin and the Russians. And if so, and if this area of Oregon is projected to be part of that uranium mining deal, then we are looking at a stunning coincidence: the U.S. federal government is coming down hard on a group of protesters who are occupying, for their own reasons, a very valuable piece of territory that goes far beyond the issue of private cattle grazing on government land.
