Oregon updates—more snacks needed, heavily armed men arrive and get rebuffed, GOP officials descend

On Saturday, Ammon Bundy’s mother, Carol Bundy, sent out an email to supporters asking for much-needed supplies for the dozen or so people still occupying the federal buildings at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Among the critical items needed are French vanilla creamer, gaming supplies, Pall Mall Menthol 100s and Miracle Whip. Because you can’t have a proper government standoff without French vanilla creamer and Miracle Whip. You can see the full list below.

Meanwhile, the Bundy-led occupiers changed the name on the sign of the refuge entrance and suddenly a group of heavily armed men arrived at the refuge:

LaVoy Finicum, a prominent member of the Bundy crew, had just finished a speech about the sign when a convoy pulled up. Members of the Pacific Patriots Network, a consortium of groups from Oregon, Washington and Idaho, emerged from their cars and trucks carrying rifles and sidearms and clad in military attire and bulletproof vests.

The new armed gang held a press conference and then were promptly asked to leave by a Bundy representative:

Bundy’s message: “We don’t need that. We don’t want it and we’re asking you to leave,” MacFarlane told reporters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
