Sgt Daniel Love, U.S. Army Airborne – “Green Beret,” was among the BLM agents in the Bundy Ranch Confrontation. In 2010, he was with the 7th Special Forces Group. Sgt Love, part of Special Operations Detachment A (ODA), served in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. Several Special Forces Members were among the BLM agents during the standoff, according to information received by USMC. They were likely sent by President Obama. Why do we think that? Let’s look at it.
An “A-Team” Daniel Love is part of an “A-Team.” ODA teams have 12 members. They are “self-sustaining and autonomous,” which means that they take orders directly from the White House. They are experts at insertion, and can survive in the middle of nowhere for extended periods of time. Let’s ask the question: why were they part of the action against the Bundy Ranch? Generally, Special Forces teams are deployed in other nations, not in the United States. But apparently, the White House felt the need to deploy extreme soldiers against a patriotic family in Nevada.
Orders before oath
“We have all taken an oath to ‘…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.…’ The Constitution of the United States is without a doubt the single greatest document in the history of mankind, codifying the fundamental principle of governmental power and authority being derived from and granted through the consent of the governed. Our Constitution established a system of governance that preserves, protects, and holds sacrosanct the individual rights and primacy of the governed as well as providing for the explicit protection of the governed from governmental tyranny and/or oppression. We have witnessed the insidious and iniquitous effects of tyranny and oppression on people all over the world. We and our forebears have embodied and personified our organizational motto, De Oppresso Liber [To Free the Oppressed], for more than a half century as we have fought, shed blood, and died in the pursuit of freedom for the oppressed.” Professional Soldiers website
It appears that that the Special Forces members at the Bundy Ranch confrontation function not by oath, but by orders. Once you are a member of Special Ops, you remain a member until you retire or die. You work for the government, period. It’s all about the orders. And it appears that some of them, rather than follow their oath to the Constitution, have violated its most basic premise: that the fundamental principle of governmental power is derived through the consent of the governed.
The “I’m right, you’re wrong” approach to the Constitution
The following exchange was recorded between Daniel Love and Pete Santilli of the Guerilla News Network:
Dan Love: “Yeah, don’t do that. That’s not gonna end well for ya. That doesn’t happen. And again, I’ve seen your numbers right now, you’d better hope that 10,000 show up…“
Dan Love: “You’re telling me you’re gonna show up and arrest officers? That’s not gonna happen, Mr. Santilli.”
Santilli: “If anyone is unconstitutional, is not following to abide by their oath to the U.S. Constitution, they are going to be arrested including the Sheriff of this county.”
Dan Love: “I’m telling you right now I’m putting YOU on warning as the messenger, if you violate, if you impede, if you interfere with two lawful court orders, you will be prosecuted, you will be arrested.”
Santilli: “They are unlawful court orders…. I did not come here to do anything but to give you the opportunity to prevent a scenario where you’re going to make a decision to cause harm to people.”
Dan Love: “We’re lawfully here! Do you see all these signs? You’re in an enclosed area, you’re on federal land…”
Santilli: “It’s not federal land.”
Dan Love: “It is federal land. I am positive.”
Santilli: “I’ll bet you lunch.”
Dan Love: “Mr. Santilli, if you were right, I wouldn’t have a job. So you know what? Be right. Get it changed, and then I’m happy not to wear this little gold shield…”
A Congressman accuses the President
“Because of this standoff, I have looked into BLM’s authority to conduct such paramilitary raids against American citizens, and it appears that BLM is acting in a lawless manner in Nevada.” Steve Stockton, R-TX
Congressman Stockton, in a letter, accused Obama of violating 43 U.S.C. Section 1733 Subsection C , citing the limited powers of the federal government. The Special Forces mandate In an article in the Washington Post last year, Admiral William McRaven, in charge of SOCOM,or Special Operations Command, said this before a Senate panel:
“I can provide a global view of the problem [of extremists and terrorists] and help link and synchronize global effects across geographic boundaries.”
Emphasizing that he works only with the approval of the president, defense secretary, geographic combatant commanders and U.S. ambassadors in countries involved, McRaven said he is developing a plan to network his “U.S. interagency counterparts and our foreign allies and partners around the world.”
The President is responsible. All Army Special Ops personnel take their orders from the President. And they are hell bent to get “terrorists,” even though they may be innocent ranchers and “trespass” cattle. Who told the BLM to stand down? Was it really some magnanimous gesture on the part of their on-the-ground people, or faced with the amount of people against them, did someone from behind the scenes tell them to back off? What was the real purpose of having Green Berets at the standoff? Think about it.
