No, I’m not a statist, communist Marxist

| January 9, 2016

This week, I told the world about some of the folks who are occupying the building at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon. Actually, I told the world about them months ago, but no one noticed until this week. My email this week would make you laugh – apparently, I voted for Obama and I’m working for the new communist world order.

Looking at the sources of our traffic this week would support that contention. The Washington Post and the Daily Koz, for example. Even our old adversary, LTC Bob Bateman at Esquire has expressed his admiration of our work in private emails to me. He even told me that after he takes away everyone’s guns, I can keep mine. (neener-neener, ha-ha)

The thing is; we are well-known through out the internet for naming Stolen Valor phonies. Not just the phonies who agree with us. As, I said the other day, where were all of these media people when they were duped by Jay Polk, the Wall Street Occupier who faked his own death after he had faked his military service?

I’ll admit right now that I sympathize with the Hammonds. I think it was chickenshit of the prosecutor to get them sent back to jail after they had already served their sentences. I’m sure the same prosecutor wouldn’t have done that to a jihadist or an inner-city criminal, but a rancher, well, that’s different, somehow.

I can understand how people would think that I’m a dick for pointing out how some of the folks of Oathkeepers, the Bundy Ranch Gang and III%ers aren’t the big military veterans that they want to be, since, politically, I’m more in line with their politics than with the prosecutors or the Federal government and essentially, I’m undermining their credibility. Yeah, well, if you have to make up stories about your life for some credibility, you weren’t very credible to begin with. If I’m “all in” against Stolen Valor, I wouldn’t be doing my job if I let some slip through for political reasons and that would damage my credibility in the community.

Once I had to ride to the rescue to one of my friends from the old days. He was a Democrat anti-gun nut in the Connecticut legislature after Sandy Hook and he made the comment on the nightly news that he was a Ranger. Folks started calling him a liar, but I knew him when he was in the Rangers, so my allegiance was to the truth and not to my politics.

My problem with the Oathkeepers stems from their early days when they were cozy with members of the Iraq Veterans Against the War when IVAW was encouraging people to ignore their deployment orders – that seemed incongruous to me.

Contrary to what people are saying about me and this blog, it appears to me that we’re the only ones being consistent in this discussion.

    You didn’t sell out to “DA MAN”, WAPO, Koz and Esquire???

    Well, that’s a relief…

    • desert says:

      In my humble opinion, it was not only “chickenshyt” for that judge to send them back to prison after they had served their time, it was ‘DOUBLE JEOPARDY’ and their lawyer must have his/her head square up their ass, along with the judge and prosecutor!

  2. Buckeye Jim says:

    Right on. Keep fighting the good fight. The truth should always trump (no pun intended) politics.

  3. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Amen. I have several liberal friends who rail (rightfully so, I might add) against these turds, but seemed to have no issue with the Occutards in NY, the stank-ass hippies crying to get the WI booted by fouling up the state house, etc.

    If you want to appear credible, be prepared to bash “your” guys for the same shut the other guys pull.

  4. Skippy says:

    it’s so hard for the media to report facts nowadays… amazing how how it seems side have gone wacko left. or crazy right
    what ever happened to the majority of us who sit in the middle with commonsence ????

  5. Buckeye Jim says:

    Yes, keep up the good fight. Truth should always trump (no pun intended) politics.

    You’re doing just fine, Jonn. Keep up the good work.

  7. Reb says:

    HUM? THEY say you voted for Obama and working for the NEW COMMUNIST WORLD ORDER” DOES that mean we can’t be friends? My father told me years ago he fought against COMMUNISTS since a young teenager and their bad people.

    I haven’t seen a single article that you’ve written to be full of crap, misleading or any fake information added between the lines.

    So, Pop, he’s not a Communist and I think I’m pretty good at seeing through bullshit.

    Keep on keeping on ?

  8. Bill M says:

    Press on Jonn. When you’re getting flak, you know you are over the target.

  9. OWB says:

    That’s some very funny stuff right there.

    The truth is the truth is the truth no matter who is telling it. That principle is at the very core of honor, and honorable behavior. Entirely too many have forgotten that concept.

    Besides, being honest is soooo much easier, especially for the lazy among us. You don’t have to waste time trying to remember who knows which lie or filtering everything through someone else’s agenda.

  10. Jonn L. A MAN of character and cute as a button as well.

    A powerhouse combo…

    Aside: Jonn DOES deserve the plaudits and more, BUT if we keep boosting his ego he IS gonna want to be paid more.

  11. Dave Hardin says:

    Great, so you suck up to some Libtards and you get to keep your Assault Weapons. Do me a favor and tell them you store some of your scary black guns at my house.

    People think you can be a dick? They have no idea that some of us think you are getting soft, or maybe flaccid would be more appropriate.

    You have to knock off all this reason, rational thinking, conviction to you position, and overall agreeable nature.

    Suck it up, let the inner Gun Nut come out. Get a grip on yourself. Next thing I know you will be posting gender neutral articles.

    I am trying desperately to hang on to my low brow, neanderthal, knuckle dragging stereotype. You ain’t helping with this new circle of friends.

  12. Jarhead says:

    When you print and/or speak the truth, NEVER back down in spite of all odds. At least YOU have the respect of all the same people who read and post on this site. The primary reason ANYONE would find fault with you is because you can never be a politician. One who lies and manipulates to serve his own needs, one who is good at fooling and duping honest hard-working folks, one who is born with an entitlement attitude, one who sees only blank when looking into a mirror, one who is so self-absorbed he can not understand why EVERYONE does not vote for him, one who does not understand the Bible’s warning of Pharisees……on and on it goes. One who speaks the truth should always be prepared to face the inevitable onslaught of the minions who serve their crooked puppet masters. On with it Jonn, as long as you write, those of us who know the truth will always be in your defense as well as your foot steps. As you point out, there will always be people against you and this blog. This blog includes every one of us who respond. Of all organizations, blogs, or any group……if the SHTF this is one of the most solid and TOGETHER groups the world would face. In spite of the jokes we crack, This Ain’t Hell and this ain’t playtime when the shoe hits the ground.

    I jumped into the fray a few days ago when I posted the first TAH mention of the wannabe’s in Burns Oregon. Many tried to lambaste me with the same bull shit, I didn’t play along and got my point across in the short blurbs you have to use on Twitter.
    The fight would be better if those pukes had told the truth a long time ago.

    Thanks Jonn, you work does not go unnoticed…

  14. Nonner says:

    Keep up the great work, Jonn (and everyone else on here). In this polarized day and age, it’s not easy being your own man but you do it time and time again, and with the utmost integrity.

  15. Lurker Curt says:

    Good on ya for staying straight, jonn. Much respect for you and the others here. I am fairly close to the ranch and my girl asked if I was going to go lend my hand. I told her what I have learned about those folks from you folks here, and she now understands. She also reads and shares daily from your FB page, specifically the MFG stories. Keep it up!

    Oh yeah, Bateman is still a dumbass…

  16. Hondo says:

    I want some of whatever anyone who thinks Jonn is a Communist and/or a “New World Order” supporter is smoking. That must be some really good sh!t!

    • Hondo says:

      . . . although I have to admit, “Dickweeds of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your stripes!” does have a nice ring to it. (smile)

  17. Ex-PH2 says:

    ‘He (Bateman) even told me that after he takes away everyone’s guns, I can keep mine.’ Well, that’s mighty decent of him, but I don’t think he should be allowed to make such decisions. He’s far too immature.

    There are some people who can’t figure out that reality has many facets to it.

    Stick to your guns like glue. It’s who you are.

    • Ronster says:

      Someone needs to take away his fork.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      As I recall, (master)Bateman didn’t like it when Jonn and others called him out for claiming to be an infantry officer after spending his career trying to stay as far from the infantry as possible.

      I’m still waiting for him to man up and show up in person to confiscate my weapons. Not exactly holding my breath.

  18. Climb to Glory says:

    Well put, Jonn. LTC Robert Bateman is still a shitbag.

  19. AW1Ed says:

    As far as those currently occupying a building at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, a recent phrase I overheard at work comes to mind.

    “That’s not my circus, and those are not my monkeys.”

  20. Just An Old Dog says:

    Good deal, whether a poser is on the left or right side of the steaming shit-pile that is stolen valor hes still a turd.

  21. Celtic Thunder says:

    Please keep up the good work! And never back down! There are way to people that need to be exposed for there Ill deeds. It ticks off myself, wife who is a vet as well and 3 of our children who are vet’s as well

  22. W2 says:

    Jonn, you are doing the Lord’s work with this blog. These oath keeper shitbags just can’t handle being called out. They were dirtbags in the service and now are they are trying to make amends by being a “badass” with their camo and patches. Screw them.

  23. Mr. Wolf says:

    Lay it on Rev Jonn. Lay it on thick…

  24. Combat Historian says:

    A poser is a poser is a poser…nuff said…

  25. 20thEB67 says:

    “…. my allegiance was to the truth and not to my politics.” = Integrity. A trait that is lacking among the hoarde you have exposed here. Give no quarter!

  26. Bill R. says:

    I read the post last week and wanted to comment on the Hammonds but the post was more about the phonies in the militia than about the miscarriage of justice that started all this. The truth is it is the Hammonds who got screwed by the government big time. They were tried, and convicted under laws that were never intended for this purpose. They did something that ranchers have been doing forever and admitted to it in court. They are not and never were terrorists. The issue of the militia is a separate topic.

  27. JohnE says:

    “…my allegiance was to the truth and not to my politics.”

    Quoted for awesomeness. Well said.
