Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy arrested by FBI in Portland; last four militant holdouts at Malheur to surrender tomorrow

The idiotic, dangerous right wing insurrection against the people and government of the United States in rural Oregon appears to be almost over.

The Oregonian reports that FBI agents have arrested Ammon Bundy’s father Cliven Bundy following his arrival at Portland International Airport. Bundy the elder had been planning to drive out to rural Oregon to join the small band of remaining militants who have been holed up in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge complex in Harney County. But instead, he found himself in federal custody.

Bundy is charged with crimes pertaining to his 2014 conflict with authorities in Nevada over grazing fees that he owes. Federal agents evidently figured that capturing Bundy while he was in transit was the safest way to nab him.

Meanwhile, the FBI successfully infiltrated the refuge complex and has the remaining militants surrounded. They are supposedly going to surrender tomorrow morning.
