Burns Fire Chief Resigns, Assemblywoman Michele Fiore Blames ‘FBI Posing As Militia’ Near Oregon Standoff

In a press release, Assemblywoman Michele Fiore claims that FBI agents in Oregon have been posing as militia amidst the Oregon standoff at the wildlife refuge. Fiore and the Coalition of Western States have released a statement indicating that Chris Briels, the Burns Fire Chief since 1984, is so upset over the development that he has resigned. The former fire chief’s verbal statement indicates that he actually resigned over the way the judge treated him after he discovered the undercover FBI agents.

Former Fire Chief Chris Briels stood next to Ammon Bundy, the leader of the group that has occupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, when he announced his resignation, according to KATU News. Briels is a member of the Community Committee for Public Safety, a local group that plans to work to reclaim local rancher’s land rights when the protesters eventually leave the wildlife refuge.

  1. Lots of angry folk up there. People in that part of Oregon are tough and independent minded. A difficult bunch to deal with if you piss them off.

    1. Thanks. I forgot where you live in CA, but I believe in the northern part? I'm in Fallbrook now.

  2. KATU is based in Portland, Or. A very non-conservative station, as most if not all of the reporters heavily slant their reports to the left. The Oregonian newspaper, based in Portland is even worse. KGW and KOIN are just as bad. I have noticed that they all just spew what the mainstream news has told them to say.


  4. As I posted and read about the clarification, it makes me wonder about the PR section of the occupation.
    It appears out of control. Or purposely steered that direction. Multi layers of confusion.
