Oregon Oath Keepers Moving Against NDAA

Klamath County Commission resolves anti-NDAA stance to protect County citizens.




Oath Keepers wishes to acknowledge the efforts of two key leadership members in Oregon. Tom McKirgan is a busy man, as you shall see. His work with Oregon’s PANDA people, despite failing to please PANDA national’s highest expectations, has produced another Oregon County to proclaim disapproval of the NDAA-2012.

Shane Ozbun, the Oregon State Director for PANDA, works directly with Tom and other Oregon Oath Keepers. When teamed with motivated Oregon Oath Keepers and Richard Fry of The Intolerable Acts, PANDA’s Oregon detachment is gaining good ground.

Tom McKirgan reports: “Coos County was the first County in Oregon to declare those sections in the NDAA as unconstitutional on July 30th, 2013. Then came Klamath County. Now,  Douglas County is preparing to implement a resolution that we recently introduced there. We have other counties in our cross hairs.

Working with Tom also is Jeff Ford, recent transplant from California, who runs Northern Oregon Oath Keepers while Tom runs Southern Oregon Oath Keepers.  The two of them are a parallel for how, also, two people are running Mississippi Oath Keepers, a tandem operation in which Elaine Vechorik is running North Mississippi Oath Keepers and John Moran is running Southern Mississippi Oath Keepers.

Tom and Jeff work with Tenth Amendment Center people and PANDA as well as with State-level and Local-level Tea Party, Constitutionalist, and other Liberty groups and organizations.  Working with others and encouraging Oath Keepers’ Oregon members to do the same, a steady mounting of public awareness is showing signs of success.  What Klamath County has done is not the “end-all” of the fight against the NDAA, but is tangible (and enjoyable!) evidence that hard and persistent work, coupled with diplomatic carriage and communications, does produce accomplishment.

Oath Keepers invites all readers to view this nine-minute video of the County Commission of Klamath County, Oregon, delivering their statement opposing the NDAA-2012.



Oath Keepers salutes Tom McKirgan and Jeff Ford and all of their Oregon Oath Keepers for pushing forward in the fight for our Liberty as Americans. Below is a brief listing of activities coming up. This shows how two good men can get County chapters up and running. How did they do it?

They started where they were, with what they had, and every day they worked to add something more to their accomplishment. They understand a concept which Oath Keepers will be talking more about in coming days and weeks – the concept of “Each One Teach One”. If two or three friends in one County want to organize as an Oath Keepers chapter, all they have to do is start holding regular meetings for the three of them, but as each one teaches one friend or neighbor, their numbers grow accordingly. It’s local, it’s personal, and it’s rewarding. Just getting out there with boots on the ground and talking to people will always add new members to your chapter in any Local or County or State area.

Both Tom and Jeff are extremely busy, but I should send kudos to Jeff for also serving as a graphics designer for Oath Keepers national. Jeff works on our Billboard graphics and Internet/website graphics as well as various other graphics projects we find for him. His artwork is excellent and he’s fast. Both Jeff and Tom are holding meetings and producing events in Oregon.

Another example of the mindset of victory is shown in these excerpts from a letter to myself from Tom McKirgan:


Just an FYI, both Raphaelle and I have a press release ready to go out right after you’ve posted the Klamath County proclamation story on Oath Keepers.

It’s directed at the City of Coos Bay for voting down our resolution. We’re beginning an initiative process and hopefully can clean house at the council, come election time. We’re giving them something to remember before the holidays set in….

Next, I have an eight hundred [word] op-ed to go into The World Newspaper a couple of days after Raphaelle sends hers out. It was shared by Richard Fry and myself. Again, geared towards the City of Coos Bay. I’m trying to time them just right.

They also need to see that Klamath County honors their oaths.

In Liberty,

Tom McKirgan

    The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is an un-constitutional act that allows the U.S. military, by signature of the president, to arrest any American citizen, on U.S. soil….NO JURY, NO DUE PROCESS, and DETAIN (you) indefinitely at a detention facility a.k.a. FEMA CAMP, for the duration of hostilities, i.e. “The War On Terror.”

    It is my opinion…one reason for the NDAA, (or maybe two reasons) is because, at some point in the near future, a massive round-up of any particular group and/or activists/journalists, would be so many that DUE PROCESS would be virtually impossible and would clog the legal system.

    The other reason would be….

    These massive arrests would be un-constitutional without legal probable cause, and a violation of 1st and 4th amendment rights, therefore….they will just go for it !!

    However, NDAA would NOT be implemented until there is a ‘Declaration” of a ‘National Emergency’ which requires the Continuity of Government (C.O.G.) to be enacted. How close are we????

    From my research….there are various levels that could lead Americans into absolute chaos resulting a ‘Revolution/Civil War,’ whereas…the NDAA would immediately be enacted.

    Level One: Dissent by Americans and alternative media against mainstream media bias, and exhausting wars abroad as a result directly related to 9/11.

    Level Two: Militarization of all police agencies, expansion of NSA spying and heavy-handed methods by DHS to intimidate/acclimate citizens via TSA and grants to expand police agencies into a recognizable ‘Police State.’ Including…NDAA legislation.

    Level Three: False Flags and subsequent legislation to fringe upon the 2nd amendment and the arming of all non-essential agencies with weapons, including over 2.4 billion rounds of ammo purchased by DHS, thus…clearing the shelves of ammo.

    Level Four: An awakening of a world against a Super Power that has their finger on the trigger that could launch WWIII, and a president that will not negotiate an economic crisis with his congress, followed by a government shutdown that is nearly uncontrollable as Veterans and Patriot Organizations call upon other Patriots to prepare for the worse. Including organized and unorganized ‘Civil Disobedience.’

    Level Five: Head to head confrontations (none lethal) between a majority of Americans and their government, forcing the government to allow states to open Federal Lands, and a near miss financial nightmare debt default that is placed on-hold for 6 months or longer.

    Level Six: America goes into serious default, commerce slows, benefits and food becomes scarce, businesses go up in smoke and riots overwhelm law enforcement. Combined with other false flags and the shutdown of electrical grids here and there, the country faces uncertainties and causes Americans to seek ’safe areas’ and patriots mobilize for the worse case scenario.

    Level Seven: Congressional Leaders urge the president to declare a ‘National Emergency’ and ‘Martial Law’ is initiated.

    Level Eight: Sections of the United States become strongholds for various militia groups as citizens and a majority of military troops attempt to reshape America against foreign forces, i.e. the United Nations. Lasting several years, millions of Americans have died and only a fragment of a government continues to operate underground.

    These scenarios are not necessarily how these levels could evolve, but as you can see, we are currently at LEVEL FIVE.

    Unfortunately, most Americans slept through Levels One thru Four and the NDAA is creeping through the back-door. Oregon Oath Keepers, and California, are going head to head with the NDAA. If when the NDAA goes live…that means WE ARE IN A WAR.

    Dear Oath Keepers:

    In your reporting, it would help if you could spell out each acronym the first time you use it.

    Thanks for all your work.

    To understand the Patriot Act, TSA, NSA, and the NDAA, you have to understand what happened on 9/11. To understand what happened on 9/11, you have to understand what happened to Building 7.

    What do you expect to gain by the lies and smoke and mirror tactics? You have lied from day one coming into Oregon and preaching to the under informed about labor camps and manure like that.

    I served two years in Viet Nam 65-67 and all for ass-wipes like you to steal our country. Warning don’ let me see any of your signs or BS in Nevada because you are going to find a fight not with words alone.
