Ben Swann Exclusive: Called “domestic terrorists” by the feds, Oath Keepers help stop Ferguson from burning



Ben Swann Exclusive: Called “domestic terrorists” by the feds, Oath Keepers help stop Ferguson from burning

By Joshua Cook  *  November 30, 2014

You might have seen them on the news. The people protecting Ferguson businesses from the arsonists and looters ransacking Ferguson, Mo. But here is the real story about the organization protecting those businesses. They’re called Oath Keepers, and they have ex-police and ex-military keeping guard of four Ferguson businesses since late Monday night, Nov. 24, at the permission of the business owners.

They’ve been shown in the media before, but the report was incorrect, according to Stewart Rhodes, national founder of president of the Oath Keepers, who stressed that the group is not just business owners.

“We are not.  We are military and police veterans who are volunteer security for local businesses.  We have Iraq and Afghanistan combat vets in the rooftops, along with retired cops, guarding the shops,” he said.

The four businesses include Natalie’s Cakes and More, a bakery that was featured on Fox News, a beauty supply store, a dentist’s office and a Chinese restaurant.

In addition to their work keeping businesses safe, and the people living there, the group has also seen some totally bizarre interactions by the federal government and the state highway patrol.

According to Rhodes, “We had an alarming incident that happened last night with our team spotting what looked like a fed three-man sniper team moving into a nearby house on higher ground, and then pointing their rifles at our team of American combat veterans, while our team was guarding the buildings against looters.”

Rhodes said the team even observed the state highway patrol snipers deploy onto the roof of a nearby fire hall and point rifles at them.

“Our team leader called Unified Command to find out what was going on and then local police responded,” he explained.

He said that the local police were unaware of what the federal government were doing and that there was no coordination. “The local police are on our side and expressed gratitude for us being there, but the Feds are trying to run us out.”

Please continue reading this article at Ben Swann’s site, where you will find an 18 minute interview with Stewart Rhodes and “Sam”, done by Joshua Cook:





  1. The Oath Keepers protecting the citizens in Ferguson where not being compensated, were on privately owned property and had every Constitutional right to be there. Why are we not filing a lawsuit?

  2. This is … extraordinary.

    Not to mention cowardly.

    Message to the fed-goon death squad: look in the mirror. Gaze upon the enemy. Do your duty and “get thee behind me, Satan.”

  3. /Salute Stewart Rhodes, “Sam”, and every other Oathkeeper that is in Ferguson.

    You are showing the people the way, opening their eyes to what is going on within their state, our nation and the real answer to it; plus just how “owned” and corrupt, traitorous, and even terroistic those who serve within our governments are (Yeah, I made that word up – terroistic, but
    it fits).

    They are learning that it is “We the people” as the militias of the several states that do those duties! Thank You and God Bless!

    You are showing them the way out of this, which is critical. Now we – the rest of us who could not be there – must push for arrests and prosecutions so that we can get our country, our people understanding what we do here in America.

    Open Note to all Attorneys, Lawyers, Judges – federal & state: The US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it is the supreme LAW of THIS land. Each state’s Constitution is the highest LAW of that state except where the US Constitution is supreme. As the TWO highest types of law that we have, do you not think it is time to start enforcing them within our courts as we are America and they are OUR laws?

    Remember, it is also our (“We the People”) duty to remove corrupt judges, judges who are NOT using “Good Behaviour” in the courtrooms.

    Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 78:”In a monarchy [the good behavior standard] is an excellent barrier to the despotism of the prince; in a republic it is a no less excellent barrier to the encroachments and oppressions of the representative body….[I]t is the best expedient which can be devised in any government to secure a steady, upright, and impartial administration of
    the laws.”

    “… The framers of this constitution appear to have followed that of the British, in rendering the judges independent, by granting them their offices during good behaviour, without following the constitution of England, in instituting a tribunal in which their errors may be corrected;…”

    Yet they did institute a tribunal. Think about it, who interprets and enforces the US Constitution? “We the People” do It starts out in the Preamble. How can “We the People of the United States” “form a more perfect Union, …” if we cannot control our judges, decide when they are using “Good Behaviour” in the courtrooms? Read it for yourself, it says that those items listed are OUR duty to create, enforce, defend.

    “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “…To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men and not more so. They have with others the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps…and their power is more dangerous as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruption of time and party, its members would become despots….”

    John Adams: “It is not only his [the juror’s] right, but his duty…to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgment, and conscience, though in direct opposition to the direction of the court.”

    “though in direct opposition to the direction of the court” is “We the people” deciding the court, prosecutors, lawmakers were all wrong. So why would anyone think that the final decisions over a judge using “Good Behaviour” would be left to anyone else?

    Then it continues making this point when it lists exactly what those who serve within our government are charged with doing, and makes clear that each branches duties belong to that branch alone – that they cannot cross over by the representatives or by those who assist in carrying out the duties of that branch; or the barriers created by each state also being a sovereign republican form of government also, but with different duties.

    James Madison, Federalist 46: “The Foederal and State Governments are in fact but different agents and trustees of the people, instituted with different powers, and designated for different purposes… They must be told that the ultimate authority, wherever the derivative may be found, resides in the people alone; and that it will not depend merely on the comparative ambition or address of the different governments, whether either, or which of them, will be able to enlarge its sphere of jurisdiction at the expence of the other. Truth no less than decency requires, that the event in every case, should be supposed to depend on the sentiments and sanction of their common constituents.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “The several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for special purposes — delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force: that to this compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral part, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party: that the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party (the people) has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.”

    Stay Safe everyone!

  4. Thanks to all who were able to participate in protecting the people where the government was unwilling, your continued service is appreciated. I am very concerned by what is being framed out there in Ferguson and am deeply disturbed that Oathkeepers were potentially targeted. I will be renewing my VFW membership and picking up my Oathkeepers membership as soon as possible. Keep up the good work out there and stay safe. I have not forgotten my oath and though I cannot be there with you physically I stand with you in spirit against tyranny and lawlessness.

  5. We are beginning to see that perhaps this whole riot thing is and was instigated by the Feds. Look back at their track records from Ruby Ridge, Waco, the Boston bombing, and now this. Guys, the POS president and the whole Federal system has declared war on its citizens. I agree that pictures would have been great to prove what is being said. We must resist against the corrupt Federal system and their unjust laws and lies. Watch each others backs and stay safe.

  6. Alexander Orlov wrote of this type of relationship between government and people. Look to history and you will see that again slow but consistant social engineering will mold even the most aware .
    Education with resistance and strong love of God , Family , Brothers in arms , Country men and Country ; will sustain . Hold fast and be steady.

  7. Keep in the news with your leadership, Oathkeepers.
    Dedicated action like this is the best promotion of the group.
    Carry on!

  8. I am sorry I was unable to attend in Ferguson, however, I am proud to belong to an organization that stays true to the course. Guarding and protecting individuals and businesses that simply can not protect themselves is nothing more than a “call to duty”. In spirit I stand with you all, and I am proud to do so. I am also a Patriot Guard and had some other pressing obligations, plus Oregon is a really long way from Missouri. Federal agents claiming that Oath Keepers are domestic terrorists is certainly not surprising. The fact that they aimed loaded weapons at our volunteers certainly is. It saddens me to think that so many people sacrificed so much for the protection of this great nation, only to see those efforts disregarded by the Federal Government. We will, however, continue to honor our oaths, and be steadfast in our journey in spite of it all.


    Ben Swann Exclusive: Called “domestic terrorists” by the feds, Oath Keepers help stop Ferguson from burning…

    I am more than patriotically excited about what the Oath Keepers are doing not just @ Ferguson but all across our nation…

    Sheriff Richard Mack, Michael Badnarik and a number of Oath Keepers in law enforcement know me well…

    Thanks to all Oath Keepers


  10. For those that cannot be there, donate to those that are for gas expenses, food and such. I couldnt be there and donated the first night and intend to do so again. Just like the BL:M fiasco, the people going need our support all the way and if donating is the only support possible, its a big support.
    Thank to Oathkeepers for ALL that they’ve done over thelast 5-6 years. I rmeber when Oathkeepers started and I used to get in an argument with a moderator on the website telling everyone that they dont touch politics and not to bring them up. It didnt take long for that to change, Thank God.

  11. PS: Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you will also have a Merry Christmas. god Bless you ALL.

  12. One of the Four Rules is: Do not point a firearm at anything (anyone) you are not willing to destroy. If anyone allows someone else to point a firearm at them with impunity then there is a problem.

  13. If the business end of a firearm points at me or mine. I return fire.
    Our dogs are family members. If they are shot. I return fire.
    If looters, rioters, thieves, or ANYONE else attempts to harm, burn, take, from myself or my neighbors. I return fire.

    Don’t Tread On Me.

    If you want Peace and Friendship. Then be Peaceful.

    I have NO pity or sympathy for arsonist, looters, destroyers of civilized society.
    Anyone who makes war upon myself, my neighbors, will be dealt with appropriate force.

    I do not call 911. People who call 911 have had elderly unarmed neighbors shot in my area.
    I care about my nieghbors and their pets. I don’t want them shot by hair trigger amateurs playing TV cops.
    To call 911 is as dangerous or more so than ANY threat.

    There are pictures on internet of what look like Law Enforcement setting fires. Is this TRUE?

    Peaceful protest and non-compliance are proven methods to affect social and political change.

  14. It is a sad day when law abiding constitutionally minded people who offer and receive permission from owners to protect life and property are targeted and slandered by government agencies. The men and women who were able to answer the call by the Oath Keepers are placing their lives on the line not only by lawless civilian criminals but by lawless Federal criminals too.

    First they will defame your good name, then they will label you, lastly they will take your life.

    We have been labeled long ago my friends in liberty. The labeling continues louder and louder now. Maintain your vigilance more now than ever, because next they will commit to the last step. Cognitive Dissidence and resistance cannot be tolerated by tyrants and they will do what ever it takes to put a stop to it.

    When the third step begins and it will, don’t sit at home waiting for them to come to you. Form your CPT in your local areas now without haste, we are all marked men now. 4GW learn it, live it.

  15. Thanks to everyone who is out there in Ferguson/St. Louis helping to protect the innocent from those who would loot, attack, and burn. It’s very disappointing to hear of the welcome you’ve received from some of the “police” and “feds.” Do you have any of your interactions on video? I think it would be very powerful if that could go onto video – there are a lot of live streaming apps for phones that can do that instantly, so that the data cannot be confiscated/deleted. There’s nothing more powerful than for everyone to be able to see and hear it on video for themselves.

    Are you familiar with CopBlock? They’ve gained a huge following and better yet – active participants. The internet, instant digital multimedia and social media is changing this whole ball game.

  16. Well, it may not be long before Oath Keepers, and other devoted citizens, become “terrorists”, according to the gov’ment. When the gov’ment declares Martial Law, and try to confiscate our arms/ammo, declare assembly of more that two people as illegal, and take away free speech, there WILL be a rebellion. It’s getting very close to that time right now!!!!

  17. The Feds and other snipers? Looks like if Oathkeepers were not there something really ugly would have happened like maybe another false flag.

  18. If the local cops are not aware of what the filthy feds are doing, then that is quite astounding AND lends further support that it’s probably the feds who are behind most of the violence and property destruction. Good going guys. Thanks for the eyes and ears of truth.
