THE BUNDY RANCH IS CALLING FOR EVERYONE TO CHANGE THEIR FACEBOOK PROFILE PICTURES TO THE*?#?LIBERTYREVOLUTION?*picture of Lavoy Finicum. You can find the photo on our FB page.

Militia members are still in their positions. FBI still has refuge surrounded.

6:38 am EST
A member of the media has entered the compound and is now embedded with the militia.
6:43 am EST
Militia at the Refuge just told media that LaVoy Finicum was unarmed when he was shot and that his personal firearm is still at the Refuge where he left it before leaving for the day.

Militia members told media that they will shoot to kill if the FBI launches an armed invasion into the compound. “This is armageddon”.

6:53 am EST
Multiple militia report FBI vehicles moving in… militia members moving to positions.
6:56 am EST
FBI MOVING IN ON ALL SIDES
6:57 AM EST
People at the compound overheard saying they hope they are not slaughtered like the people at Ruby Ridge and Waco. They are extending love and well wishes to one another.
7:01 AM EST
My connection has gone dead. Hoping for it to be restored ASAP.
7:36 am EST
FBI holding latest positions have not moved in further. More media arriving. No fighting to report at this point. Fed vehicles still at a distance with lights off. At least 5 media outlets on the scene, including CNN.
8:16 am EST
Everything at a stand still. Militia at the refuge are still angry over the murder of LaVoy and are in no mood to surrender.
9:12 am EST
Unfortunately, nothing new to report… I’m still checking in with my contacts but nothing else has happened. I’m sure the people at the refuge are getting tired from having been up all night. For those who made fun of them for asking for energy drinks early on, now we can see the sense in the request.
9:48 AM EST
Some of the militia have been able to eat breakfast and refuel with coffee. Media are walking around bugging the militia members to sign permission forms to use their faces on camera… a request that is not being met with much interest from the people who are preparing for a gun fight with federal agents.
10:31 am EST
Gunshots heard in the distance. Not sure who shot. Some speculation that other militia may have arrived.
10:44 am EST
No additional shots heard. Militia in position.
11:17 am EST
No significant developments. Some women chose to remain in the compound to fight along side the men.
11:20 am EST
Some media are leaving the area after having been warned off by the FBI. WKTVZ has posted that the FBI told them that they will be provided no protection. This is a bad sign. If the FBI is trying to get the media to leave, they must not want footage of what is going to happen.
11:49 am EST
Despite 6 witnesses who saw LaVoy Finicum get shot while he was unarmed, with his hands above his head, MSNBC is now reporting that FBI officials are claiming that LaVoy “jumped out of his vehicle brandishing a firearm and was shot and killed.” THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE LIE. Federal Authorities are also claiming that they do not know who fired the “shot or shots” that killed LaVoy. Shot or shots? They riddled the man with bullets. Eyewitnesses say he was shot 6 times, including 3 times after he had fallen to the ground dead.
