Oath Keepers Will Give Out Additional Gas Money for Volunteers Still at Bundy Ranch on Thursday, May 8, 1-2pm at Stage Area


We have already given out over $4,000.00 in gas money over the past two weeks, but we are now going to give out additional gas money to any volunteers still out at the Bundy Ranch who need gas money to get home.

Oath Keepers will be sending our store manager, Jim, out to the ranch tomorrow, Thursday, May 8, from noon to 1pm.   He will be at the spot where the main stage was, near the tall flag poles, on the side of Hwy 170, which is on the left, before the bridge, when driving in from I-15.    This is the main stage area where most of the action took place, such as Cliven Bundy bringing the Sheriff onstage to announce that the BLM was calling off the Roundup.   Those who need gas money are asked to please email Jim in advance, if at all possible, at:

merchandise@oathkeepersgear.com

Please email him and let him know what state you are from and how much you are requesting.  He has to cut it off at $360.00 maximum per request to make sure there is enough for others, but if there is money left over after he has given gas money to others, he may consider giving you more if you can prove you are driving that far until he is out of money.
If for any reason Bundy Ranch volunteers can’t email him in advance, just show up at the stage area near the flag poles on the side of the highway, from 1pm -2pm, and it will be first come, first served till he runs out of money.   You will have to show your license so he can see what state you are from to support how much money you are requesting, and he will need to verify in some way that you are actually out at the ranch (that he will do on the spot by talking to you).   He will ask you to fill out a hand receipt so he can show our treasurer how much he gave out.  Fist name is fine on the receipt.  You will also have to promise to mail us the gas receipts from your trip home, for our Treasurer to use.   We will be relying on your word that you will do so.  Send gas receipts to:
Oath Keepers
Attn: Treasurer
5130 S. Ft. Apache Rd.
Suite 215
Las Vegas, NV 89148

This is the last of our funds we have for this effort.   We just want to help prevent anyone from being stranded.   All who wish to donate to the Bundy’s from here forward are encouraged to donate directly to them at:

Cliven and Carol Bundy * 7175 Gold Butte Rd * Bunkerville, NV 89007

Or you can donate online at  their paypal, here:

We still fully support the Bundy family and their cause, but it is best if you donate directly to them if you so choose.

    This is not sounding good, I have already purchased a ticket to fly from Peru SA to be there on
    the 18th. in support of the effort. Truck is rented and everything.

    Are your Phone hotlines still being answered?

    Since the people currently in charge of their security wouldn’t even give us a number for us to call and report anything we saw while out on patrol, on Tuesday the 29th we informed the Bundy family that their security team would have to take on that scout function themselves. We can’t help when their security team refuses to even communicate with us. And, after Ryan Payne and Jerry DeLemus and others publicly slandered us on Monday the 28th with the lie that we had deserted our posts (when they know for a fact that we had gone out on patrol on the night of Friday the 25th and had been out every night since, our local Nevada members were offended and no longer wished to even try to work with such people.

    I spoke with Cliven Bundy on Thursday, April 30, and I informed him that until he and his family regain control over their ranch, and control the hot-heads and loose cannons on it, that we were unable to even run the patrols we had been running out on the highways and local roads around the ranch. I let him know we still support his family and their cause, which is just, but they need to put one of their sons, such as Ryan or Ammon, firmly in charge of the volunteers out there, rather than leaving it up to whoever happened to assert leadership among the volunteers to call the shots. For instance, it is highly unlikely that the Bundy family approved of Ryan Payne making that public video “vote” where he lead others to participate in an attack on Oath Keepers, which forced us to issue a public rebuttal, where we laid out the facts of what actually happened on April 25th – that earlier that day, long before any tip on possible drone strikes, I had proposed to Jerry DeLemus that we Oath Keepers go out as scouts, in vehicles with HAM radios mounted in them from which we could communicate with our General Class HAM, Paul Stramer, who had come all the way from Montana for that purpose (with the radios he installed, we could talk to him from the vehicles in a 50 mile radius of his base station set up in his hotel room at the Virgin River Hotel in Mesquite).

    On the afternoon of April 25, Jerry agreed to this plan for us to deploy out as scouts, and that is precisely what we did that night, with two of our guys from Montana pulling first shift and then David Helms and I pulling a shift ourselves after midnight. And, in fact, we talked to Jerry on the phone while we were out on scout duty. So, by raising his hand in that vote condemning us as deserters and traitors, he knowingly participated in a lie, since he knew for a fact that we were at our posts that night, pulling scout duty as we had planned (and to which he had agreed), and likewise for the others with us, who took their turns pulling scout duty all night, and into the day, from Friday the 25th, every night and every day, all the way till the night of Tuesday, April 29, when we finally pulled the plug on that detail after Ryan Payne refused to even give me a number for our scouts to call if they saw anything. As a stop-gap, we had relayed information to Brandon Rapolla, who had returned from Oregon. Brandon became our only reliable contact to report to. Brandon met with Steve Homan while Steve was out on patrol, and I also spoke with Brandon on the phone to relay information on what we saw while David Helms and I were out (Brandon and I had gone out on patrol all night on April 19 – when we were on heightened alert given the historically significant date – because we both recognized the critical need for scouts being out on the roads, as eyes and ears).

    So, Jerry knew all of this – knew that we were in fact at our posts, as scouts – and still stood there and raised his hand and voted “yes” in Ryan Payne’s choreographed slander of us, which benefits nobody except Ryan Payne – it certainly didn’t help the Bundy’s to have this become a public display, with us forced to publicly refute the slander.

    Even after all that, we had still intended on running scout patrols on the highways, and had even arranged with volunteers from our Southern Nevada chapter, lead by an outstanding Marine veteran, Dan Molloney, to run those patrols. And they did go out on the night of Monday, April 28/morning of April 29. But the last straw for us was when Steve Homan, while out on patrol, went into the volunteer camp and Jerry Delamus’s CP to try, one last time, to patch things up. They invited him into a prayer circle, and while he was praying with them, someone snuck into his truck and stole one of our hand-held FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared) scopes that we were using while out as scouts (a $3,000.00 piece of gear). That told us all we really needed to know about the degree to which that camp had deteriorated and where we stood with those in charge of it. And, of course, DeLamus has not taken responsibility for the lack of security in his own camp, by replacing that FLIR with another FLIR unit we had left with him. And we don’t expect him to ever do so.

    On Thursday I let Cliven Bundy know that their cause is still just, and we support it, but he has a dangerous situation there with people who are hot-heads and loose cannons, who, at the very least, put their hands on their side-arms and threatened some of our men, which very nearly lead to a gunfight, as we detailed in our video rebuttal to Payne’s dog and pony show. I urged Cliven to put one of his sons in charge of all volunteers, and to make sure that only level headed people were there (and the great majority there were just fine – but it only takes a handful of loose cannons to endanger everyone else).

    That is in his hands. From the outset, we were there in support of the family and we intentionally did NOT try to run that camp. We brought in volunteers, and considerable assets and supplies, which are still out there. In fact, the only reason they have real comms in that camp to this day is because Justin Giles, one of our Alaska leaders, left his Two Meter antenna and radio there for them to use, along with six dual band hand-held HAM radios that are also his personal property. Till Justin showed up with that base radio and two meter antenna, they couldn’t even talk from the CP to the house, because of a hill in the way, without posting a man on the hill as a manual relay. And even after all that happened we STILL left Justin’s commo gear there because without it, they would all once again be unable to even talk by radio from the volunteer camp CP to the Bundy home. We will see if he gets his commo gear back when this is over – that will be the final test of the competence and integrity of those who are running that camp (and just to be clear, it was NEVER an “Oath Keeepers” camp. It was always run by someone else. We intentionally went there in a support mode, and did not try to run it. Maybe that was our greatest error).

    In that support mode, We brought in well over a ton of food, 20 MURS radios, another 20 handheld dual band HAM radios, and countless other bits of gear and supplies, including all the materials to construct 70 mylar and tarp camouflaged shelters to hide the men from FLIR, along with bringing in dozens of Oath Keepers members as volunteers. Some of them were out there for two weeks. And all of us, including the four BOD members who came from all over the country, pulled guard duty. Steve Homan and I stood guard for five hours at the post in front of the Bundy Ranch turn off, so one of our guys from Montana could get some much needed sleep.

    We also flew three current serving Sheriffs in from across the country, and helped bring in a large coalition of Western State legislators, and we were instrumental in forming the Coalition of Western States (COWS) which held its inaugural meeting at the Casablanca Hotel there in Mesquite on April 26, to help spread this fire of resistance all over the West. Some of those legislators were on hand to stand on the stage with the Bundy family at a public press conference on April 14.
    and we brought in additional volunteers, food, and gear over the next two weeks. I personally drove a truck load of volunteers and towed a trailer with their gear and donated gear for the Bundy Ranch volunteers already there. And we had another truck and trailer pick up a ton of food in Bozeman Montana.

    And I brought my own HAM radio expert, Paul Stramer, all the way down from Montana, so he could be on hand to talk to the world in case the Bundy Ranch was isolated, and cell reception disrupted.

    He brought his mobile Hi Frequency rig (so he could talk to the world while mobile if needed), and also set up a base station in his hotel room to be the commo base for the mobile scouts we put out. He also outfitted two rental vehicles with mobile HAM radios for the scouts to use, and we used them for four days and nights. But after the debacle of Monday the 28th/29th, he returned to Montana. Likewise for a medical team I also brought down from Montana, lead by a lady who has incredible field experience running clinics in third world countries. She just flat did not feel safe at the ranch, and I could not blame her. So, she too returned to Montana.

    I don’t regret going there. The cause was just and still is (and we will go again if the BLM tries once again to oppress the Bundy family). If I could do it over again I would keep all Oath Keepers in a separate unit, and keep our gear closely watched and to ourselves. And I would make sure that our men and women were under leadership within our own chain of command and not mix our people with other units or under other’s command, except for the ultimate leadership of the Bundy family, of course.

    More later.

    “And I would make sure that our men and women were under leadership within our own chain of command and not mix our people with other units or under other’s command”

    That is probably the best idea.

    Hopefully someone is still trying to discover who the infiltrators are since they are most likely in every group. It is what they have done with our government, with all who group up to display the criminal actions of “our” government, so why would we (meaning us “normal, everyday, not trained” people) think that they would do otherwise.

    I am looking forward to hearing a statement from OK’s in reference to the upcoming May 16th gathering.
    And I wonder what your opinion is of Sgt.Maj.Page, who spoke to OK’s in St. Louis.

    May we stand united.

    Stewart Rhodes Says: Chris, even after all that happened, I will not try and discourage you from going there and lending a hand. But, I recommend that you reach out to the Bundy family directly and coordinate with them, so you are assured that they make the most of what you have to offer, and so you are confident that your trips will be worth while. They still need GOOD people on the ground there. But if you are not going as a cohesive unit, try and connect directly with the family and coordinate with them. Stewart

    Richard C Wilmot Says:

    What is needed is a operational procedures manual, addressing the operational policies and chain of command to be established at events & operations like this for the OK’s. This should be implemented through out the whole OK organization.

    As the word of God says: “don’t be unequally joined together”, “come out and be you separate”. We are OK’s, not dumbed down wanna bees or glory seekers. We are men & women of honor, integrity and valor, tried and tested for the most part under military, LEO, first responder and patriotic Americans standing in the fire for others.

    I salute all of you for you service, honor and integrity, and standing for Liberty.

    Yours for freedom

    D.A. Hancock Says:

    If Oath Keeper’s are going to respond to future events in this capacity, I agree with Pastor Richard C Wilmot.

    An After Action Review.

    SOP for a Rapid Deployment Force for future events.

    It would be nice to to have a Rapid Deployment Force of OK’ers from each State,equally trained to the same standards that could respond to events in their own States.

    Nick Johnson Says:

    Refusal to interoperate when contact is imminent or likely is the mark of either a narcissist (see Obama/Benghazi) or an agent provocateur. You can expect both in this milieu. As S-2 for the New Mexico Militia in the 90’s, I watched the combination of the 2 decimate & neutralize any attempt at a cohesive national organization.
    From the sources I’ve seen, OK has done an outstanding job in Nev., provisioning the volunteers, providing comms and roving road patrols and a presence far more professional than what was there when OK arrived. Some of the commentary I’ve heard from the other camp is frankly, more than disappointing; some of it is downright scabrous and deliberately inflammatory, esp. this crazy talk about “Zionists” and so on. The mainstream press gets a hold of that, we all just might as well hang it up.
    My opinion is everyone needs to QFA on the infighting. The bad guys are waiting for both the enthusiasm and the numbers to dwindle to a point where they can apply maximum force with overwhelming numbers, and then they will incur; and they will kill ever last person down there, so to leave no witnesses.
    This in mind, I will get there when I can (early/midsummer if possible), bringing whatever provisions, etc. I can. I will contact the Bundys well beforehand. I would urge OK not to give up on the Bundys, to keep a dialogue open with them, with an eye to your return to the AO. All goes well, Lord willing, I will you there. De Oppresso Liber. NJ
