Was Oregon Standoff Really About Government Insiders Selling U.S. Uranium to Russia?

The standoff took place 70 miles north of Burns, Oregon, where protests over the Hammond ranch caused activists to occupy a federal building earlier this month. The occupiers were led by Ammon Bundy, son of Cliven Bundy, the key figure in the 2014 Bundy standoff. The FBI stopped a vehicle harboring Bundy, his brother, Finicum and others who were on their way to a public event.(1)

“Agents with the FBI stopped the vehicle, at which point one of the individuals in the vehicle pulled out a weapon,” The Wall Street Journal reports. “At that point, FBI agents fired [and] the individual who was brandishing the weapon suffered fatal injuries, officials said.”(1)

Hammond Ranch a gold mine for uranium

Unanswered questions remain about why the feds came down so hard on the protesters and occupiers. One possible reason is that the federal government needs to seize the Hammond ranch for its precious metals and uranium. According to the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a federal agency under the Department of the Interior:

“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.”(2)

Uranium One controls a good portion of uranium production in the US. Russia gradually took over Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013. Now, Vladimir Putin controls 20 percent of all uranium production capacity in the US.(2,3)

Clinton Foundation played pivotal role in securing Uranium One deal with Russia

During that time, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. After Russia announced its plan to take over Uranium One, former President Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with ties to the Kremlin.(3)

In other words, there is good reason to believe that the Clinton Foundation helped sell Uranium One to the Russians by ensuring them US plutonium. Therefore, it’s possible the recent Oregon standoff wasn’t fueled by the activities of Dwight and Steven Hammond, but by government insiders trying to sell US uranium to Russia.(2)

According to this theory, the reason why US authorities have been so hard on the protesters is because they are occupying a valuable piece of land – a piece that was promised to Russia for its plutonium resources.

      The art lies in knowing when to wield those arms and when to put them down. I don’t think it’s a matter of pretending to be ideally unharmed by life and untouched by darkness; because that is hypocrisy. Rather, I think it is a matter of being true to your truth and learning when to fight and learning when to be soft.

      He DID NOT PULL A DAMN GUN!!! He was grabbing his side due to being fucking shot repeatedly with hands in the air.

    • 210440625970794@facebook.com' Paul Waynetska says:

      He went “something” in his pocket. Twice. Running a road block almost running down a deputy, running from you vehicle and then reaching for something in your jacket is a great way to get shot.

      • ddx3_@hotmail.com' Douglas Walker says:

        This was an execution, I watched the video several times and could see no indication of him “going for his gun” What I did see was a man trying to walk in the deep snow with his hands above his head. It looks like he lost his balance and his hand went down to regain his balance and at that time he was shot. What makes me think this was an execution was that when he was down he was shot several more times and at no time was there any sign of a firearm in his hand.

    There is so much we don’t know that it is a plausible reason for the excessive force the FBI took to remove the leader of this standoff. It’s all about money, like everything is.

    Read a different article this morning, which blamed an organization funded by the Koch brothers, who allegedly supported Cliven Bundy’s refusal to pay grazing fees. All sorts of conspiracy theories floating around.

    “Unanswered questions remain about why the feds came down so hard on the protesters and occupiers.”

    Huh? I have been following this story and the authorities (feds and local) left them alone for a long time. It was only after local residents and supporters of Malheur Wildlife Preserve started to gripe about wanting the occupiers gone that things started to move forward.

    And based on the article, a weapon was pulled before FBI shot and killed the occupier, isn’t that an appropriate use of force? Or should the FBI wait to see if they are shot at first?

    These occupiers had guns. How did they think it was going to end? Should they be allowed to take over a resource from the public by force? How should the authorities remove people with guns who refuse to be talked out?

    I question my government every day, but I don’t see a conspiracy in this one.

      You have not looked at anything about the actual story then
      A gun was never pulled
      Shot in cold blood after being ambushed

    • 1482473435394851@facebook.com' Jacqueline Mansfield says:

      Ok. I accept that I may not know all the details. I wasn’t there and that is the only way to really know what happened.

      However, I stand by what I said by, “there were armed occupiers, how did they think it was going to end?”

      If they had been shot in cold blood while peacefully having a conversation with government (unarmed!) I would be outraged.

      I don’t agree that one group’s disagreement with government gives them the right to take over a public space.

    When unarmed Black teens and other minorities were shot down in the streets, conservatives and other White’s said “Obey the law and don’t get shot”… Shouldn’t the same apply to armed thugs, with fully loaded assault rifles, who already made threats on national tv, disrespecting law enforcement officers? Don’t be a hypocrite, there are not two different standards, all are equal under the law. There is not one rule that applies to Whites and one applying to minorities. The Bundys are criminals and They are terrorists, they violated the federal statute on domestic terrorism from day one. Terrorists. Violence or lack of does not define criminals. They are domestic terrorist, white supremacists, racists, and totalitarian assholes, never trust someone who wants to cause sedition against the greatest country on the face of the earth or in world history. These people are psychos, and just as dangerous to freedom as ISIS, (p.s. for all you haters out there, beheadings alone do not define terrorists) https://www.fbi.gov/…/sto…/2011/september/militia_092211
