I have read some of your articles on the Federal Observer website. They are very interesting. I also saw that you are Liason Officer for the Southern Oregon Militia. What exactly is the Southern Oregon Militia? I donít imagine it is anything even remotely connected with the Oregon National Guard or you would probably be inIraqright now. I live inThe DallesOregon, and was just interested in what is going on inOregon. Keep up the good articles.
We formed up the SOM back in 1993 in response to massive corruption in local government, and the fact the federal government had began to murder American citizens in the Waco and Ruby Ridge incidents, and then covering up the atrocities. When we saw that, we knew it was time to reinstate the citizen militia as the Constitution provides.
The National Guard, which is made up of fine American citizen soldiers, is not a proprietary state militia, based upon the Dick Act of 1903, which gave the president first power over the state governor if a conflict arose. As such, the NG is first a tool of the federal government, and then a tool of a state governor if no conflict exists. As such, the National Guard is not a true state militia at all.
Alabama Governor George Wallace found this out the hard way when he wanted to enforce segregation in his schools. The National Guard soldiers who reported for duty stood against his wishes, and in support of federal policy.
We do not support racism in any form, mind you, but that lesson in loyalty did not escape us. The National Guard is overwhelmingly supported by federal funds, and so they lend their loyalty accordingly, the Constitution be damned.
Only the volunteer citizen militia is a true state citizen militia, and the State of Oregon refuses to acknowledge us. So be it. They remind me of those who claim not to believe in God, so therefore He does not exist. Here locally, there are those who claim the SOM does not exist, therefore we have no power. The problem with that, is that we've turned elections right and left to suit our wishes.
We have no ego. We have no ulterior motives. We just want to see justice served, and we DO.
We're proud of the work we do, and we make no apologies. We take no money for what we do. We are the Untouchables of today, and we are proud of it.
