Oregon Militia Leader Says Government Is “Putting People Into Poverty” An armed militia group in Oregon took over the Malheur Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon on Saturday as part of a demonstration against the U.S. government. The occupation was also in protest of the prison sentences handed down to local ranchers Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son Steve, who were convicted of arson after they burned 139 acres of federal land in 2001. The Hammonds were due to surrender to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons on Monday. Ammon Bundy, a Nevada rancher, is acting as one of the militia's leaders. He is the son of Cliven Bundy, who has a history of clashing with the federal government over land grazing rights. The FBI took over as the lead agency for the ongoing standoff on Sunday. They said in a statement that they would be working with local law enforcement to "bring a peaceful resolution to the situation at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge."
John Galt is our fearless leader. Before founding The Galt Report, Galt worked as an engineer for the Twentieth Century Motor Company, where he secretly invented a generator of usable electric energy from ambient static electricity, but abandoned his prototype, and his employment, when dissatisfied by an easily corrupted novel system of payment. This prototype was found by Dagny Taggart and Hank Rearden. Galt himself remains concealed in a remote valley, where he unites the most skillful inventors and business leaders under his leadership.
