Biggest Rat Deserts the Bundy Standoff Sinking Ship

OregonLive.com: Jason C. Blomgren, one of the 26 people now indicted...in the armed seizure of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon...pleaded not guilty to a new indictment charging him with conspiracy to impede federal officers and possession of firearms in a federal facility...

(The) Federal Magistrate Judge...agreed to release Blomgren from custody once his father arrives in Portland to return with him to North Carolina in Blomgren's vehicle. (He) will be on electronic monitoring and home detention, pending trial.

Blomgren...drove...from North Carolina several days after the leaders seized...the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge...(He) left his two sons with his elderly parents...(He) needs to return to North Carolina to help his 17-year-old son who has autism because Blomgren is the only one who can calm him down, said his court-appointed lawyer...

But Blomgren's autistic son has managed to manage without him for the better part of a month, and apparently Blomgren's father isn't too "elderly" to travel from North Carolina to get him. Sorry, but that doesn't make sense. And dare I hope that Blomgren will receive his ankle bracelet BEFORE leaving Oregon custody?

ReverbPress.com: It appears as if there were extenuating circumstances that warranted (the pretrial release)...but it’s hard to imagine that his confession of what the Oregon standoff leaders had planned didn’t play a role...

“Blomgren told authorities that the occupation leaders never booby-trapped the wildlife sanctuary but talked about using ‘IEDs,’ or improvised explosive devices, when planning for a worst-case scenario and using at least two drones to spy on the FBI, the prosecutor said.”

The seismic tremor you just felt was the result of a collective orgasm going through the entire Oregon federal system.

During the end of the standoff, one of the holdouts kept accusing the Feds of planning to bombard them with enough additional charges to keep them in jail permanently. It sure sounds like she was right, which makes Blomgren's release that much more mysterious. But if his statement about their discussing IEDs and drones gives the Feds a way to bombard them into prison permanently with the ULTIMATE domestic terrorism charges...Now, THAT makes sense!
