UPDATE:BLM LAND GRAB OREGON

The APIII-Oregon leader linked up with one of the guys working Operation Gold Rush today for a supply run.

According to the supply man the operation is running smoothly with a lot of good guys. Cool headed veterans are running the operation. The non-experienced are either paired with those that are or are being left at the supply drop site, depending on character. The operation end is still being run by an Oath Keeper who was Marine Infantry. They have several experienced corpsman on site running the operation. The operation is being run by a bunch of devout, level headed patriots

The food supply has been good, but are in desperate need of fuel cards to run the generators for the comms gear and CR123 batteries. They have set up a paypal for donations at http://www.oathkeepersjoco.com/. They are also still looking for more personnel. Please contact them if you are interested in helping at the mine.

UPDATE: BLM LAND GRAB IN OREGON

This comes to us from one of our Oregon members, a Assistant to Oath Keepers Public Information Officer at the mine.

On 29 April 2015, it was reported that the command center of Operation Gold Rush was under continual observation by unknown surveillance operatives and that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) had brought in armed security contractors. Much speculation has been undertaken regarding the scope and purpose of these security contractors. At this time, the Oath Keepers Josephine County wishes to express no opinion on the matter of the purpose of the armed contractors. They are under observation and no action is being taken beyond that.

Originally, the BLM denied knowledge of the security contractor’s existence or any operations they may be involved in. Later, in two separate incidences, Oath Keepers JoCo was contacted by the BLM. The first contact was made by the BLM’s Public Information Officer to Oath Keepers JoCo’s Public Information Officer, Mary Emerick. The second contact was the BLM Law Enforcement Officer to the Oath Keepers JoCo Coordinator, Joseph Rice. Both BLM sources gave the same statement, almost verbatim, that these men who were observed, were BLM employees, attending a pizza party in Medford celebrating the retirement of a co-worker.

This, however, does not match up with their observed locations. Oath Keepers does not wish to disclose at this time the locations where the contractors were observed. Suffice it to say that there could be NO correlation to a retirement party at a pizza place.

Oath Keepers Josephine County does not wish to engage in speculation at this time, however the narratives simply do not match. We are continuing to verify, confirm and document our observations.

UPDATE: BLM LAND GRAB IN OREGON

Submitted by APIII Oregon Chapter

The BLM has been playing it off as though they have no intention of pursuing the issue until after a court decision later this year (despite their letter to the owners). There are reports of tactical vehicles having been moved into Grants Pass (nearby city).

Supplies have been rolling in (all donated from people all over oregon, as well as some from neighboring states). We’ve got supply lists up on the oregon page of the requested supplies (updated at least weekly). Their mess facility was estimated to be set up today (haven’t gotten word of progress).

The operation has been up and running reliably, but the personell on site are getting worn out from the long hours of patrols and lack of manpower. Still having trouble finding volunteers that are able to get out there to assist for more than the time of supply runs

Last update: 0516 hrs on April 22nd.
This post is going to be a list of items needed on site. It will be updated periodically. Items will be labeled from one to three in order of priority. Items labeled one are high priority. Items labeled two are medium priority. Items labeled three are normal priority.
When donating supplies or anything, if you wish that item to be returned to you, please mark the item with indelible ink (like a Sharpee marker) with your full name and address clearly in a conspicuous area. Items NOT marked in this manner will NOT be returned!<\strong>

CRITICAL NEED ITEMS: These are items needed that hare higher than priority one!
Shelving units (Supplies are coming in so fast, they need to be organized properly
Gasoline (and gas cans)
Kerosene
Cots/hammocks
Military Standard Camo Ponchos

Food (2) FOR THE TIME BEING, PLEASE DO NOT SEND BREAD PRODUCTS! We have a lot of food on site and more coming in. Of course, this is one thing that is going to be needed continuously. However, at this time, there is enough bread, tuna and ramen soup to last a long time. Chocolate bars, granola, dried fruit, nuts and such are needed for the troops as these are high energy foods. Also need dried meats. Mess services will be set up as soon as possible (probably around the 22nd) so now would be a good time to start sending things like uncooked beans, rice and such. Canned foods are always a good idea, too.
