Time to state the obvious. The Bundy family is only in it for the Bundy family. Always have been.

They've now dropped the militia world because they no longer need it to get what they want.

They use their religion as cover for getting what they want.
Cliven Bundy was willing to have hundreds of strangers take up guns, point them at feds, and risk being killed while he sat with his body guards in a comfy SUV on the hill and watched his cattle come home.
The Bundy standoff organizers used kids as human shields on 4/12/14 but Ryan Bundy told his wife to keep their own kids far away from Bunkerville, because it was going to get dangerous.
Ammon Bundy's takeover of the Malheur Refuge was "peaceful" on the outside (what he said publicly) and violent within (his plans with the Operation Mutual Defense group.)

Surprise, those who bought into his peaceful speech got burned.
Had the militia world done *any* due diligence whatsoever instead of believing every patently absurd conspiracy theory, 2014 would have been a nothing-burger and 2016 wouldn't have happened at all.
Ammon Bundy cashed more than $500,000 in federal loans but considers the federal government his enemy. Who does that? A hypocrite.
A year ago, I wrote a thread in which I tried to explain the relationship bet sagebrush rebels and "patriots." After Malheur, it was frustrating to see so many people equate the 2 groups, when in reality, there is only a small overlap that fluctuates depending on current events.
The Bundy family pushed that overlap in 2014-2016 but are now separating the two groups back to where they were before 2014..

This was the thread I mentioned.
