Ammon Bundy tortured in Nevada the last 24 hours!

[Editor: If you have not followed the murder of LaVoy Finicum, you should. Just put Lavoy Finicum in the search box at the very top right. We covered this thoroughly as it happened, watched the video of that shooting frame by frame many times to find out what really happened. This is government gone crazy and it’s holding over from the Obama regime.  This is a true American tragedy built on greed and corruption in measures most of us cannot conceive. Ammon Bundy and the entire Bundy family were the original targets but when ranchers like Finicum came forward with hours of video footage of the destruction caused by the BLM against legitimate ranchers so government, Obama’s government, could strip ranchers in the southwest of their grazing rights, the BLM threw caution to the wind.  If you didn’t follow this story, please take the time to go back in AFA and read some of the articles. Ammon Bundy is guilty of being a rancher on lands Obama and Harry Reid wanted!]

Ammon was taken from the shower by 6 swat members, striped him and threw him into solitary again after he just got out at 40 days.  He has a dislocated shoulder and wrist, swollen hands and cut ankles and he sounded like he was suffering hypothermia. Over 400 days in prison, not convicted of anything, denied bail and a right to a speedy trial.

Calling all campers and proud Americans to the crooked Pahrump Nevada CCA hostage center !!! We can camp in ’14 day’ groups and then will need to change shifts to avoid tickets .. Friday morning 9am it will continue until they release Ammon from solitary and improve his TREATMENT !

Call and tell the sheriff and commissions to meet us at the Pahrump Jail this Friday morning at 9am to investigate the attempted murder of Ammon Bundy and to review the film. Ammon knows he will not make it to his day in court at this rate and we have to take this seriously before they kill him!!!!!! Remember this is a political agenda so they do not care about Getting Ammon to his trial!

Listen to Ammon Live tonight from the Solitary:

Ammon Bundy was tortured in the Pahrump Federal prison this week. He was shackled and placed in a 3 foot by 3 foot shower stall, and left for 13 hours with no food and water. He was told that they originally intended to keep him cuffed and stuffed in that stall for 72 hours, with no food and no water. They then intended to remove him from the stall, take him to medical and insert an I.V. so as to keep him from dying.

Pahrump CCA detention center

The plans were cut short when several swat team members, dressed in full tactical gear, forcefully removed him from this shower stall and stripped him naked. They proceeded to “inspect” his naked body as he lay on the floor.

He was not able to raise his arms above his head, as instructed, due to the pain he had been in for the previous 13 hours. They had to help him comply.

His legs were bleeding from the shackles and he had trouble walking. Again, they had to help him.

He was thrown into Solitary Confinement, still without his clothing. Later, a guard stuffed his undergarments through the hole in the door.

Ammon is of the firm belief that if he had been left in that stall for the full 72 hours it would have probably killed him. Hear his words in this video:

All of this abuse was video recorded by the guards at the Nevada Southern Detention Center, Pahrump. There is evidence of this assault.

When word reached the public, it went viral. We wrote about it, along with several other alternative news outlets. Videos were made. Calls began to officials from Nevada to Washington D.C.

Yet, Ammon still sits in Solitary.

A Call-To-Action has gone out to rally in Pahrump and protest this torture. The Federal government has responded by locking down the prison and refusing ALL inmates any visitors. This seems to be an attempt to turn the prison inmate population against the political prisoners, specifically Ammon Bundy.

This writer received a message from the Nevada Department of Corrections Inspector General’s office. I spoke with a very nice woman named Brooke Keast, who wanted to assure me that their particular department cannot intervene in the Federal facilities.

I was very happy to arrange a phone call with her. She was extremely polite and seemed to genuinely want to help when we talked.

However, during our call, she happened to mention that she was standing next to Mari St. Martin, the Communications Director and Public Information Officer for Governor Brian Sandoval. St. Martin, in turn, happened to be standing next to Governor Sandoval.

Based on the discussion, it would seem that Governor Sandoval had not been informed of the situation playing out in his state. He has now been informed. I hope to see a public statement from his office in the near future. If I don’t, I will be sure to call his office, probably via Ms. St. Martin, and ask why.

Continuing my discussion with Ms. Keast, she told me how things should be handled, and, of course, how they are handled in the State facilities. She also recommended that we contact the Warden directly, to start with.

I expect to be hearing from Ms. Keast again. I will let you know when that happens.

The Geneva Conventions is a body of Public International Law, also known as the Humanitarian Law of Armed Conflicts, whose purpose is to provide minimum protections, standards of humane treatment, and fundamental guarantees of respect to individuals who become victims of armed conflicts.

Convention I includes...the Convention prohibits execution without judgment, torture, and assaults upon personal dignity (Article 3). It also grants them the right to proper medical treatment and care.

Convention IV includes … civilians are afforded the protections from inhumane treatment and attack afforded in the first Convention.

The Article 3 of Geneva Conventions covered, for the first time, situations of non-international armed conflicts, types of which vary greatly.  They include traditional civil wars or internal armed conflicts that spill over into other States (countries) … It requires humane treatment for all persons in enemy hands, without any adverse distinction. It specifically prohibits murder, mutilation, torture, cruel, humiliating and degrading treatment, the taking of hostages and unfair trial.

Remember that the prosecution called this an “armed conflict”. They set the stage for this embarrassment, so they must own the results.

The treatment that these political prisoners are enduring are a direct violation of the accords that this country entered into and ratified.

Additionally, keeping in mind that these men have NOT been convicted of any crime, they are supposed to be treated as innocent until proven guilty, as guaranteed by the US Constitution.

The Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees the right to a speedy trial. Furthermore, Federal law requires that a trial commence within 70 days.

18 U.S. Code § 3161, (c) (1)

In any case in which a plea of not guilty is entered, the trial of a defendant charged in an information or indictment with the commission of an offense shall commence within seventy days from the filing date (and making public) of the information or indictment, or from the date the defendant has appeared before a judicial officer of the court in which such charge is pending, whichever date last occurs. If a defendant consents in writing to be tried before a magistrate judge on a complaint, the trial shall commence within seventy days from the date of such consent.

The fact that they have been held for over 400 days, with no trial yet in sight, makes their detention a part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

The NDAA allows for trial-free, indefinite detention of anyone, including American citizens, so long as the government calls them terrorists. (Remember Harry Reid?)

The government, aided by Judge Gloria Navarro, has continuously denied these defendants all of their Constitutionally-guaranteed rights, as expected under the NDAA.

Navarro has also repeatedly refused them bail. Accused murderers have been offered bail, including a case just this week in North Idaho, in which the suspect is being held until he can come up with one million dollars. Regardless of whether or not he can come up with the money, he was offered the chance for pre-trial release.

Our Federal Government has specifically set out to defy their own laws. And they do so without fear of retribution. Where is Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump? Can they tell us if this is a case for the NDAA, or a case for the US Constitution?

(photo: Facebook)

Sharon Wehrly is the sheriff of Nye County, Nevada. Her office has been bombarded with calls. They have decided to become a part of the problem, instead of the solution. They state that only a person with “personal knowledge” can make a written complaint, and this is the only complaint they will investigate.

So, only the prisoners (who have already been threatened with new charges of “Insurrection” if they complain) can file the complaint. But, the Sheriff will not send anyone out there to get the complaint. (Catch-22?)

Is it any wonder that the guards believe they, too, are above the law? Someone needs to be held accountable.

What is their purpose?

This is a good question. The case can be made that Ammon Bundy will end up as a martyr for the US Constitution. People are rallying around him from each state in the union. If something should happen to this man, there seems sure to be a considerable reaction.

We have already had one martyr in LaVoy Finicum. Will the Federal Government insist on another?

Could that be the goal, or just the “Unintended consequence”?

History shows us how bad the government will come out of this, if they end up turning Bundy into a martyr. There are many smart people in government. You think any one of them would have thought this through.

Start your phone calls to the warden!
Continue the phone calls to the Governor!
Keep going up the chain, to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Trump.
Cite these laws. Remind them they are here to enforce, and to obey the laws they enforce.
We will reach someone that can stop this barbaric treatment!

Here is a list of numbers you can use. Please call as many as you can, and you can do this repeatedly until the situation is resolved.

Alaska sues federal government, contending state controls riverbed, not BLM

Bureau of Land Management, CORRUPTION, Federal gov & land grabs, Lawsuits, Liberty, State gov

Free Range Report.com

April 23, 2017

In its complaint, Alaska said it gained title to submerged lands and navigable waters when it acquired statehood, unless the federal government made any claims prior. The state said the federal government based its claim to ownership on a 1984 administrative decision of the Alaska office of federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Alaska files lawsuit over Knik River ownership

WASILLA — The state of Alaska filed suit against the federal government this week over a land ownership dispute regarding submerged Knik River lands.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court on Wednesday.

According to a spokesperson from state attorney general Jahna Lindemuth’s office, Alaska wants to assert ownership after failed past attempts to have the United States recognize Alaska ownership of the riverbed.

According to documents filed in federal district court for the District of Alaska, the United States in 2015 conveyed ownership of portions of the Knik River to Eklutna Inc. On its website, Eklutna, Inc. states it owns significant holdings in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, with approximately 67,000 additional acres due to be conveyed from the Bureau of Land Management. It also owns 90,000 acres within the Municipality of Anchorage, including areas of Eagle River, Birchwood, Chugiak, Peters Creek and Eklutna.

“Such action casts a cloud a cloud over the state’s title,” legal document filings by the state said. “In bringing this lawsuit, the State of Alaska seeks to confirm and retain its right to manage its own lands and waters…the United States claims ownership of other lands in dispute vial this complaint because of its ownership of lands abutting the Knik River.”

In its complaint, Alaska said it gained title to submerged lands and navigable waters when it acquired statehood, unless the federal government made any claims prior. The state said the federal government based its claim to ownership on a 1984 administrative decision of the Alaska office of federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM). That office concluded the stretch of river is not navigable.

The BLM amended the decision in 2002. In September of 2015, relying on its 2002 decision, the BLM issued a decision approving certain lands — chosen by Eklutna Inc. for conveyance to the corporation which represents approximately 175 shareholders, according to its website. It is an Alaskan corporation created under the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act for the Native village with the same name.

This month, the state, BLM and Eklutna officials entered into a settlement agreement to resolve state public easement concerns. BLM has indicated it would review its decision in portions within and adjacent to the disputed bottomland areas.

“This case is an important step towards clarifying ownership and access rights for the Knik River,” Lindemuth said. “I would have preferred to avoid litigation, but the federal government refused to recognize the state’s rights to these lands and waters. We are hoping that filing litigation will spur the federal government to quickly overturn its prior decision.”

The state is also seeking to recover costs and attorney fees in the case. Federal officials have yet to respond to the court.

Tax Time: Who pays the most and the least income tax in California?

Federal gov & land grabs, State gov

DATA TRACKER

TAX TIME

BY JIM MILLER jmiller@sacbee.com

Sac Bee.com

Tax deadline day is Tuesday (yes, April 18) and the following weeks and months again will make clear that, when it comes income taxes, certain parts of California generate an outsized amount of revenue.

Taxpayers in Los Angeles, Santa Clara, Orange, San Diego and San Francisco counties had the highest total federal tax liability – the amount of taxes owed – in 2014, the most recent data available, according to Internal Revenue Service statistics. In terms of average liability per return, seven Northern California counties – Marin, San Mateo, San Francisco, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, Napa and Alameda – lead the state.

Palo Alto’s 94301 ZIP code, meanwhile, had the highest state adjusted gross income in the 2015 tax year – more than $10 billion – and total state tax liability of almost $1.2 billion, according to Franchise Tax Board statistics. In the Sacramento region, Folsom’s 95630 had the highest adjusted gross income, $3.1 billion, and total state tax liability of almost $158 million.

At the other end of the scale, remote counties in the foothills and Sierra had the lowest total tax liability, with Yuba, Imperial and Trinity counties having the lowest average tax liability per return. And ZIP codes in Mecca (Riverside County), Huron (Fresno County) and Lamont (Kern) were among about two-dozen ZIP codes with average tax liability of $200 or less.

Next week’s filings also should help answer the question of whether the economy, after more than 90 straight months of post-recession expansion, continues to grow or if there are signs of trouble ahead.

“The downturn is inevitable,” Brown said in January, when he released his latest budget proposal. Others, though, including the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office, have suggested the administration’s revenue outlook as overly pessimistic.

Indeed, the analyst’s office believes there’s a strong chance that the state’s tax receipts will put it on track to exceed a voter-approved spending limit for the first time in

30 years, raising the possibility of tax rebates or other measures.

Whoever is right, California’s government will stay heavily reliant on the state income tax to function. It represented more than two-thirds of state general fund revenue in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016, with almost 17 percent of that money arriving in April, according to the State Controller’s Office.

In his January spending plan, Brown predicted the state to take in $13.5 billion in April; through Wednesday, the state had received about $2.5 billion this month.

California also remains a major source of income tax revenue for the federal government, with $205 billion in total tax liability in 2014, up from $128 billion in the 2009 tax year.

Want to follow along with the 2016 state returns? Starting Monday, the analyst’s office will post daily income tax collection updates and the California State Controller’s Office also has a daily tracker.

Gary Hunt Gets Released From Federal Custody

Freedom of the Press #13
Sojourn to Sacramento

by Gary Hunt
April 11, 2017

Introduction

This past Saturday, April 8, I returned home from a week long visit the Sacramento County Jail.  I was in jail based upon a Warrant for my arrest for failing to appear at a show cause hearing on March 10.  The Warrant and what led up to it will be the subject of a future article.

I am writing this article to explain a system that, quite frankly, ignores our rights, especially when only accused of a crime.  It will give a little insight into life behind bars, at least those of the Sacramento County Jail.  I can’t say that this compares to the treatment that those currently held in jail in Oregon (Jason Patrick) or Nevada (many still innocent people) are receiving, but, perhaps it will help to understand that they are being treated similarly, or worse.

It will also explain what I have gone through.  Now, when I go to Court in Portland, next month, I will be entering the courtroom on the terms that I had to establish.  Fortunately, though without a plan going in, the final result is that I achieved a bit more than I could have expected, thanks to Judge Anna Brown.

The Arrest

Around noon on March 30, 2017, a nice, sunny, warm day, here in Los Molinos, California, I received a phone call from FBI Special Agent Catalano.  This was the fourth call he had made to me, since back in January when he first provided me a copy from the US Shyster demanding that I cease and desist publishing information obtained from the United States v. Ammon Bundy, et al, discovery evidence.  He began by saying, I am here in Los Molinos with the US Marshals, and I suppose you know what this is about.”  About that time, my wife buzzed me and told me that lunch was ready.

I then asked if it was to arrest me.  He affirmed that that was the purpose.  I asked if I could have about an hour to explain to my family what was occurring.  After conferring with someone on his end, he said that would be okay.  I told him that I would call him when I was ready.  I must say that I honestly believe, because of the tone of his voice, that SA Catalano did not enjoy his task

I called my team and gave them the simple message, “I am going to be arrested and transported to Sacramento.”  Please post that on my Facebook pages.”  I told them that there was no more to report, at this time.  Then, I went to the house, planning to do a bit more preparation, after I had eaten.

As I sat down to eat lunch, the task that I had anticipated, though somehow hoped would not occur, became reality.  My wife and children know what I do, but our agreement is that my work stays in my office, and out of the house.  They had no idea what I had been writing, but that was about ready to explode, big time, as I began, “I am going to be arrested within an hour.”

I tried to explain the background, and that the principles that I held so dearly had led to this situation.  My wife, however, was distraught and my children simply confused.  In the ensuing turmoil, I did not make adequate preparation.  I did not fulfill my plan to make a list of phone numbers.  And, as I have since learned, it would also be wise to take a fully charged cell phone, and some cash, if you are being “self-arrested”.  These exigencies will be explained, where appropriate.

I did empty my pockets.  I had only my reading glasses, a bandana, a cigarette lighter, cigarettes, and a crush hat.  That, of course, besides the clothes that I was wearing.

Fully prepared for what was to come, I called SA Catalano and told him, “I’m ready.  I will meet you on the road and I will be unarmed.”  Then, I left my home, went to the road and walked down about a hundred feet, out of sight of my wife and children, and stood with my hands at my side.

A few minutes later, two vehicles came down our country road.  They stopped about 200 feet from me.  Then, they moved, slowly, in my direction.  They stopped, again, and two armed US Marshals, automatic weapons, body armor, and fully black (that used to be the color for the bad guys, and, I presume, unchanged.).  They stood, cautiously, by their vehicles and motioned for me to come toward them.  I did so with my arms well out to the side and my palms facing toward them.  When I got adjacent to the vehicle, one of the Marshals told me to turn around and put my hands behind my back, I did so.  I asked, “Are you going to take me all of the way to Sacramento with my hands behind my back?”  Another Marshall told him to “five-point” me, so even before the “cuffs” were put on, a waist-chain was wrapped around my waist.  Then, they cuffed one hand, inserted the other cuff through a slot in the waist-chain, then cuffed the second hand.  They frisked me, but took nothing from me.  Next came the leg irons.  They are larger in circumference than the handcuffs and have a chain between the two “bracelets”, about 2 feet long.  I was then placed in one of the vehicles.

MUCH MUCH MORE —

Texas Wins Victory for Farmers Against BLM

Federal gov & land grabs, Property rights

Breitbart.com

April 8, 2017

By Bob Price

Wichita Falls, TX

Texas leaders and farm owners secured a victory in the battle against the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) attempted land grab along the banks of the Red River. The federal agency announced it is suspending the surveys ordered during the Obama Administration to justify the attempted takeover of 90,000 acres of land.

The BLM admitted this week admitted in a letter issued on March 29 (attached below) that it used an “incorrect methodology” in its justification for the attempted taking of land that had been in the possession of many Texas landowners for generations. “Having reviewed this deposition testimony and other new information, the BLM believes the survey methodology was used in error and may have caused errors in identifying the location of the Gradient Boundary,” Acting Cadastral Survey Chief Stephen Beyerlein wrote in the letter.

“The BLM’s admission that it used incorrect methodology in these surveys and the decision to suspend the surveys is welcome news,” U.S. Representative Mac Thornberry (R-TX) said in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “The portions of the river that the agency has surveyed strayed widely from the accepted gradient boundary survey method established by the Supreme Court in Oklahoma v. Texas. It is encouraging that the BLM has admitted their error and that all administrative action will be suspended until the matter is resolved. I will continue working with the landowners, local and state officials, and Senator Cornyn (R-TX) until this issue is resolved once and for all.” Thornberry is the author of the “Red River Gradient Boundary Survey Act” which passed earlier this year.

Texas farmers applauded the action by the BLM. “We’re pleased the Bureau of Land Management has done the right thing by admitting that the land surveys do not take the movement of the Red River into consideration,” Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) President Russell Boening said in a written statement. “TFB has been involved in this situation for years. We take it very seriously when government decides that private property no longer belongs to those who have purchased, paid taxes and hold titles to it.”

“When this was brought to our attention by TFB member Tommy Henderson, we knew we had to act,” Boening said. “We sent a video crew to Tommy’s place to document his fight for family land along the river. That video went viral and brought much-needed light to the situation.”

Following a tip from now-Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, Breitbart Texas initially brought national attention to the issue that the BLM’s actions threatened landowners like Tommy Henderson whose family owned some of this land for generations. “Several local news outlets had written about the issue,” BLM Spokesman Paul McGuire told Breitbart Texas at the time. “But when Breitbart wrote about it, I called Washington and said, ‘This thing is going to blow up now.’”

And blow up it did. The following day, many national outlets picked up the story and ran with it. Then-Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas the next day, ““I am about ready to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.” He fired off a letter to then-BLM Director Neil Kornze demanding answers on the issue.

The BLM responded they weren’t taking the land because “It is already ours.”

Texas’ leadership including then-Attorney General Greg Abbott, then-Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, then-General Land Office Commissioner Jerry Patterson, and State Senator Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls) joined with Texas’ U.S. Senators, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, and U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry to try to get the BLM to release the land back to the Texans who had believed they owned the land, in some cases for many generations. Then Governor Rick Perry weighed in on the issue in May when he said the “the federal government already owns too much land.”

Following the BLM’s announcement, now-Governor Abbott said, “The BLM’s prior actions have been hostile to landowners and their property rights, and I’m pleased an end has come to this unconscionable land grab. (This) decision by the Trump administration is a victory for Texas landowners along the Red River and for our constitutional rights.”

Nearly Doubling Cascade/Siskiyou Monument Sets Up Battle

Federal gov & land grabs

To rancher Lee Bradshaw, the presidential order nearly doubling the size of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument was both shocking and predictable. Ever since the original 53,000 acres of public land were designated as a monument in 2000, there had been whispers about enlarging it. Even so, the announcement during the final days of President Barack Obama’s administration in early 2017 appeared rushed to Bradshaw, particularly since a handful of meetings held about the expansion were more about creating hype than seeking public input, he said.

“I knew it was coming our way, but it was unexpected about the way they did it,” Bradshaw said. With the federal government adding 47,000 acres to the monument, the ranching and timber industries in Southern Oregon are bracing for the worst. Critics of the monument say they’ve seen the economic damage caused by the original designation, leading them to expect similar restrictions on grazing and logging within the expanded boundary.

“Through no fault of their own, their operations are in jeopardy,” said John O’Keeffe, president of the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association. This time, though, the timber industry and county governments are spearheading a legal battle against the monument expansion, arguing the federal government lacks the authority to restrict logging on much of the newly included property. If the litigation proves successful in scaling back the monument’s size, it would also effectively thwart potential restrictions on cattle grazing.

Although inclusion in the monument doesn’t automatically prohibit grazing — as it does most commercial logging — critics say ranchers will inevitably face increased scrutiny and curtailments. “Even though the language of the proclamation says grazing can continue, they just regulate you out of business,” said Karen Budd-Falen, an attorney specializing in public land disputes.

Under the original Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument proclamation issued by President Bill Clinton, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management had to analyze whether grazing interferes with “protecting the objects of biological interest.” If necessary, the agency was ordered to retire allotments.

In 2008, the study found “negative interactions between livestock and individual biological objects of interest,” meaning that grazing was “not compatible” with their protection in some locations. This determination convinced Mike Dauenhauer and several other ranchers to sell their grazing rights to environmental groups for an undisclosed amount…more
