The shocking acquittals of Ammon and Ryan Bundy, along with five other militants, in the armed takeover of an Oregon wildlife preserve is already emboldening anti-government extremists.

Two of the Bundy militants’ loudest cheerleaders, Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore and blogger Gavin Seim, are already signaling that additional actions may be taken against the federal government.

Fiore, who lost her re-election campaign in the Republican primary, told a reporter that the not-guilty verdicts were a message that Americans need to stand up to unlawful behavior by government employees.

She also posted a tweet suggesting other, similar actions might be coming, as she dedicated the acquittals to Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, who was shot and killed by police during a traffic stop when the Bundys and other militants were arrested.

“May you rest in peace,” Fiore said. “Today was our first victory. Thank you Oregon.”

Seim, who livestreamed Fiore’s efforts to get the final holdouts to surrender at Malheur, compared the Malheur occupation to the earliest battles of the American Revolution.

“Before we break out the fatted cow, let’s think about something,” Seim said in a Facebook video. “We haven’t even won Lexington yet, so let’s not start pretending that we’ve won the war.”

He suggested that “wicked” federal authorities who brought charges against the Bundy militants, who Seim said had “defended the Constitution,” should be held accountable somehow — and he called for anti-government action to secure the release of other “prisoners of war” jailed in “concentration camp” on various charges.

“Be joyful about (Thursday’s) verdict, not guilty, but use that to build the narrative,” Seim said. “Use that to get those ‘sunshine patriots’ out of the closet and turn them into real patriots.”

Doctors are urging the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to be upfront with the American public about side effects from a potential COVID-19 vaccine.

According to CNBC, the doctors are worried that people will refuse a second dose of the vaccine after experiencing the side effects. Vaccines being produced by both Pfizer and Moderna require two doses.

“We really need to make patients aware that this is not going to be a walk in the park,” Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of the American Medical Association told CNBC. “They are going to know they had a vaccine. They are probably not going to feel wonderful. But they’ve got to come back for that second dose.”

Trump’s bizarre Georgia play: GOP in chaos just so he can show he’s still the boss

Published

Despite having begrudgingly allowed the General Services Administration to issue an "ascertainment" that Joe Biden is the president-elect and the normal transition process could begin, Donald Trump is still relentlessly flogging the lie that the election was stolen by the Democrats and he is the rightful winner. And he's sending out a daily fusillade of emails begging for money, with the alleged goal of overturning the results.
