Bundy: Liberty Roundtable Interview With Shawna Cox

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Redoubt News.com

June 8, 2017

Cox said it was clear from the video that Ryan never had physical contact with the guard.

“Although Shawnna and Mack have different viewpoints, we clearly agree that the Bundy’s and their supporters should be treated with dignity and respect and certainly should not be in Prison!
We look forward to working together to make a valiant stand in defense of  our sacred rights of Due Process and speedy trials. In unity we recognize There Is No Liberty With Innocents in Prison!
Please support our efforts at http://www.TheFreedomCoalition.com
~ Sam Bushman, Liberty Roundtable, to Redoubt News

by Loren Edward Pearce

On June 1, 2017, Sam Bushman, of Liberty Roundtable podcast show, invited Shawna Cox to give her side of the story to what she observed in watching 6 videos of the circumstances surrounding the shirt incident with Ammon and Ryan Bundy, eventually leading to both of them being condemned to a 3 foot by 3 foot shower stall and then culminating in being placed back into “the hole” or solitary confinement.

Listen to The Interview Here: Liberty Roundtable

I reported on Bushman’s earlier interview with Richard Mack and objected to how they made assumptions, comparisons and conclusions about Ammon Bundy’s behavior and integrity. With the Shawna Cox interview, I am pleased to report that Bushman was very fair with her, giving her all the time she needed to report things as she recalled and interpreted them.

SMELLS LIKE A SETUP

In Bushman’s interview with Cox, she noted at the 14:50 mark that there was a follow up, post incident interview with the security guard who had seized the shirt who claimed that Ryan had brushed his arm while trying to get the shirt back but that it was no big deal, he was not going to press charges. Cox said it was clear from the video that Ryan never had physical contact with the guard. He attempted to get the shirt, but it was out of reach and no contact was made. Cox said that the video shows the guard calmly walking away and throwing the shirt into a hamper and Ryan and Ammon returning to their bunks. It appeared that the incident was over and done with.

Some time goes by and the video shows 5 guards reappearing at the door of the pod. The first video ends and is replaced by a hand held video. What happens next has already been reported but what I would like to emphasize is that:

  1. The first video confirms that neither Ryan nor Ammon ever had physical contact with the guard and,

  2. That the guard himself acknowledged that it was not a big deal and was not thinking of pressing charges.

However, there appears to be an element of discrimination against Ammon for doing something that was commonly done for months. Why the sudden crackdown? Why was something that was a common practice, the hanging of shirts, now escalated to something requiring 13 hours (originally planned for 72 hours) of torture in a 3 foot by 3 foot shower stall? Did prison staff decide to teach Ammon and Ryan a lesson? Were they looking for a way to marginalize and weaken them by putting them back into solitary, thereby making their defense in trial that much more difficult?

THE QUARTER INCH SYNDROME

After spending 41 days in solitary, Ammon had been released to the general population and was resting on his bed minding his own business. Following the example of many other prisoners, he had placed a shirt to block the bright light so he could get some sleep in the night only to be rudely awakened by a guard objecting to his shirt. That incident quickly escalated to something that could have ultimately taken his life, had they completed the planned 72 hours of confinement in the 3 foot by 3 foot space.

Marine and Bundy bodyguard: The Demonization of Schuyler Barbeau

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Redoubt News.com

by Gary Hunt
December 23, 2015

Schuyler Pyatte Barbeau is accused of failing to pay a tax and register a firearm with the federal government and that required that the tax be paid. However, the “firearm” was not a “firearm”, but separate parts, when the government received it, as explained in “The Arrest of Schuyler Barbeau“. There were two barrels, a receiver, optical devices, and other items, in a case that was delivered to a Confidential Human Source (CHS), identified as Oliver Murphy.

Now, it is necessary to understand that all of the objects that were in that case were legally purchased. There is no crime in the possession of the objects. However, it is rather ironic that if the shorter barrel (10.5 inches long) is affixed to a rifle receiver, it becomes illegal, presumably, because the rifle with a barrel less than 16 inches (the “criminal” element), can be easily concealed because of the short length. The 10.5 inch barrel reduces both muzzle velocity and accuracy, when fired, so it is really less of a rifle. On the other hand, if you were to affix the 10.5 inch barrel to a pistol, or handgun receiver, it is legal. In contrast, the rifle receiver, which by description, must have a stock, while the pistol receiver does not. This makes the pistol with the 10.5 inch barrel considerably shorter, and more concealable, than the rifle version. So, it begs the question, is there any sense, at all, in this law that taxes the one (rifle) and not the other (pistol)?

So, now we have illustrated the extent of the charges against Barbeau. Clearly, this is about his demonization by the federal government, in an attempt to influence public opinion against Barbeau, because the law does not allow “fishing expeditions” to try to find a crime, nor did the Framers intend for the government to have such power.

The demonization begins with the information provided by the paid CHS. This is detailed in “Search Warrant Affidavit or Fishing License“. There are unsubstantiated claims that Barbeau claimed to have stolen “blasting caps and detonation cord” from his Army National Guard unit, though there is no indication that the well inventoried and secured items were ever stolen, nor were they found during the warranted search.

To understand the security involved in cataloging these items on a military installation, here is what Maureen Peltier, a disabled 15 year veteran that worked in supply, says about the control of such inventory:

I must add information for those not privy to our supply handling of certain equipment.
Soldiers, we all know Ammo, blasting caps, det cord are not just laying around in our Armories. We all have to go to ASP (Ammo Supply Point) to receive and only those authorized with specific Ammo handlers certification can sign out for such items for scheduled training. Transportation to and from Armory than to training site is all pre-determined. Much coordination is involved and I personally have overseen such coordination as I have in my logistics positions, coordinated from pre-planning to execution to return. Such items are handled under guard and with great caution. Storage points at Armories, just prior to live training execution, would be under weapons vault controlled by unit Supply Sergeants. Security alarm systems and a vault room inside larger weapons vault room is the proper authorized site until final movement to a designated training site.

If items such as that went ‘missing’, they would not only shut down and lock down all of the surrounding area or entire base, Soldiers would all be confined to unit AO or training site, until all missing items are recovered or an all clear by base Commanders have been issued. This would not go unnoticed. ~SSG Moe

However, when the FBI visited the National Guard unit, the only thing they had to say was that Barbeau had served eight honorable years in both the Marines and Army National Guard. There was no evidence to support the loss of the named items.

This, however, did not bar the FBI from “invading” the Aenk Ranch, some 280 miles from where Barbeau was arrested. This raid was a quasi-military operation, conducted by 25 goons, each using the same type of firearm that Barbeau is accused of possessing, and numerous other federal agents, as shown in video footage of the raid in “Domestic Terrorism“.

This raid was based on the very vague charges in violation of Title 18 (Criminal) US Code. Charges of possession of stolen federal property and possession of a machine gun. Neither of these charges have any substance, as explained above, except for the word of the paid CHS informant. So, again, it begs the question, were the “allegations” made by the paid informant simply an imaginary and contrived scenario to please those who were going to cut him a check for $3,500, or just bravado talk between friends?

Later, news channel, King 5, on December 17, did a field interview with Allen Aenk, where the damages caused by the December 6 raid on the Aenk Ranch can be seen. The segment also shows a portion of a document that had been recently unsealed at the Federal Eastern District Court, in Spokane, though not tied to the arrest and current charges against Schuyler Barbeau.

The referred to document, the affidavit supporting the search warrant that was executed on the Ranch of December 6, brings forward the additional unsubstantiated charges of violation of the criminal code.

It is important to note, since there is no proof of stolen property, it is reasonable to question, how can it be justification for such an overwhelming show of force when the nearly platoon sized army of federal agents stormed the ranch, knowing that, with the exception of Carrie Aenk who was alone at home, the other two inhabitants of the property were in federal hands, 280 miles away?

The raid, based upon such meager justification, surely cost the taxpayers many thousands of dollars, which makes us ponder whether the intent of the law is, as suggested, a tax or revenue law, or is it an expansion of federal authority, outside of the constraints of the Constitution, in trying to circumvent the Second Amendment?

Acted as a bodyguard to Cliven Bundy in April 2014: Schuyler Barbeau Changes Plea To Guilty

2nd Amendment, Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

PNP comment: Government informants have been rampant in the Bundy situations. Makes one wonder about entrapment. — Editor Liz Bowen

Redoubt News.com

June 6, 2017

by Shari Dovale and Jenn Cannon

The trial for Schuyler Barbeau ended abruptly today when the defendant changed his pleas to guilty.

A small group of supporters were in the courtroom watching Barbeau as he became emotional when his best friend – turned Confidential Informant, Oliver Murphy, testified on the witness stand. With Murphy’s assistance, Barbeau was arrested on November 22, 2015 and has been incarcerated since.

It was stated in open court that Murphy received $13,500 for his participation in the sting that resulted in the arrest of Barbeau on Federal firearms charges.

The prosecutions case was nearing the end at the morning break for court. It was an unusually long break, then when court reconvened without the jury, it was unexpectedly announced that Barbeau intended to change his plea on both charges to Guilty.

Judge Robert Jones instructed the Stand By attorney for Barbeau, Robert Gombiner, to fully instruct the defendant in what it would mean to change his plea. When court resumed for the afternoon session, the change of plea was entered into the record.

Barbeau became emotional when he addressed the court, saying, “I realize that I have done things the statutes prohibit.”

Barbeau plead guilty to two counts, including possession of an unregistered firearm and possession of a machine gun. Each count can carry up to a maximum of 10 years in Prison plus hefty fines.

Additionally, there is a forfeiture clause that Barbeau agreed to, with the exception of a “scope” that he would like the court to return to him. Future hearings on these items will be scheduled at a later date.

It is now up to the court, after reading recommendations to be submitted by the government, the defense, and the probation department to determine what punishment Barbeau will receive.

Judge Jones made a statement concerning the sentencing guidelines, saying they are only advisory for him and are not mandatory. He stated that these guidelines used to be mandatory, but now he need only refer to them but he is not bound by them.

Several issues will be considered before sentencing on September 1, 2017.

California Cattleman’s Assoc. led charge to stop Wild & Scenic Rivers expansion

Agriculture - California, cattle, State gov

CCA Defeats Legislation to Expand Wild & Scenic Rivers

CCA and a diverse coalition of agricultural and business groups held legislation in the California State Assembly late Thursday night that sought to expand protections for rivers designated as wild and scenic under the California Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. Specifically, AB 975 by Assembly member Laura Friedman (D-Glendale), which proposed to increase designated  areas currently confined to the river to also include land 1/4 mile on each side of the river. Land use activities such as grazing and permitted water rights within the 1/4 mile could have been severely impacted.

CCA’s and the coalition’s strong opposition to the bill blocked the author from obtaining the 41 votes necessary to advance the legislation to the Senate. Today is the last day for Assembly bills to be sent to the Senate and Senate bills to be sent to the Assembly or otherwise be ineligible to be heard for the rest of the calendar year. The Assembly will not meet again until Monday and therefore the legislation is effectively dead for 2017.

CCA appreciates all those members of the Assembly who held firm in their opposition to AB 975. CCA also appreciates ranchers who responded to the two CCA action alerts issued over the last two weeks to contact their Assembly members to oppose the legislation – it made a difference. Don’t hesitate to contact Justin Oldfield in the CCA office for more information.

2014 Bundy Ranch: DeLemus Sentenced to Over 7 Years for Bunkerville

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Redoubt News.com

May 31, 2017

by Shari Dovale

Gerald DeLemus traveled from his home in Rochester, New Hampshire to Bunkerville, Nevada in April 2014, arriving after the standoff in the wash was over.

The BLM left, Cliven Bundy got his cattle, and DeLemus had to hear about it from others.

He stayed behind for about a month providing security for the Bundy family, in case the BLM agents returned.

He had answered a call for Patriots to help protect people, not a call to incite violence. Yet, he was arrested for his actions and pressured to make a plea agreement in the case.

Pertinent transcript page from DeLemus plea hearing. (courtesy: Deb Jordan)

It has been widely reported on the tactics used by the government to coerce DeLemus into the plea agreement. Citing threats to his family and children, DeLemus agreed to serve 72 months for his participation in the protest.

Several months ago, DeLemus attempted to change his plea and requested to go to trial. He waited months for a response from Judge Gloria Navarro. Her denial of a hearing finally arrived and his sentencing came today.

Because of the attempt to change his plea, Navarro took that to mean he altered the agreement and sentenced him to a longer time in prison.

Navarro sentenced DeLemus to a total of 87 months incarceration. She did not set large fines, stating that she understands he cannot pay them, $100.00 for each of the two charges.

However, she was merciless when she spoke to him. “You have been blinded,” she said, John Lamb tells us, “You never tried to tell Mr. Bundy to just pay up.”

It is also noted that she derided the defendant for spanking his children when they were young. The defense attorney attempted to point out that several of DeLemus’ children, in fact, support their father. “I have no evidence of that,” was her reply.

Lamb tells us that Navarro went so far as to include in his sentencing requirements that he is banned from seeing his grandchildren. This is for the duration of his incarceration and parole.

It does leave this writer to wonder just what the Judge was actually sentencing him for? Was it his plea agreement, his support of the US Constitution, or was it his conservative views on child-rearing?

Navarro was certainly sending a message to the remaining defendants. She showed how she could go above and beyond her scope by using the harshest punishments available to her.

The message is clear: Do Not Disagree With This Government!

Bundy Refuge issue: An Insider’s View on INFORMANTS

Bill of Rights, Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

PNP comment: I just found this article and wanted to post it. — Editor Liz Bowen

Redoubt News.com

April 1, 2017

By Terri Linnell

Informant’s agents were reading other reports, some biased, some clear entrapment, which skewed the results of the overall accuracy of the data.

Terri Linnell is known as “Mama Bear” to the Patriot community. She has been an activist since 2008, when her sleeping giant started to awaken. Terri has been to Washington DC three times for redress of grievances, and participated in the Bundy Ranch Standoff in Nevada.

She is known as “Betsy Ross” to the FBI community. She was given that name by the FBI when she agreed to be an informant at the Malheur Wildlife Protest in Burns, Oregon, during January 2016. Linnell later testified for the defense, stating clearly it was just a protest, protected under the first amendment.

Terri’s time as an informant was under 6 months, yet she will give you some insight to the inner workings of the FBI, and their handling of “Confidential Human Sources” and how the government is absolutely watching citizens.

In a Redoubt News exclusive series, Linnell has agreed to go on record recounting her experiences, combining her time protesting with her knowledge of the subtleties of the games being played against the people of our great country.

Informants: A Necessary Evil Or Illegal Act?

By Terri Linnell

After being in the Oregon Standoff Trial it’s been pretty easy to see the role of the 9 informants who were inside the refuge, and the 6 more informants outside the refuge. 15 total informants to tell the FBI what they couldn’t gather with their license plate scanners, aerial surveillance and tape recordings, drone surveillance, and other technology.

But the question is: how useful were these informants in the end? Did they show a non-biased view of what was going on? Did they avoid the pitfalls of agents trained to avoid entrapment? Well, in order to know these answers, we must examine the data.

Mark McConnellBurns Chronicles - Mark McConnell was clearly biased against the protesters. He also led a militia group in his home state, where the group was well-known. This leadership role in Arizona gave him automatic control of protesters who were volunteer security.

Furthermore, it was McConnell who led the organizers to their arrest, and the death of LaVoy Finicum in the most un-routine “routine traffic stop” the FBI has ever claimed to conduct.

Wolf, aka Allen Varner, ran one of the three security teams, as a co-leader with two others. This clearly created entrapment, since he was in the decision making process for the security volunteers who were arrested. The two other co-leaders were also arrested for crimes, yet how much influence did this informant have in decision making? A great deal.

Marshal Smith pretended to be a real US Marshal for ‘Judge Bruce’ who everyone believed to be a real judge, there to insure the protest didn’t break any laws. Impersonating a police officer gave credibility to the protesters that what they were doing was perfectly legal. Over the top? Absolutely. We are supposed to trust police.

Fabio MinoggioBurns Chronicles – Fabio Minoggio aka John Killman showed up for a brief period and had the security do drills and even some target practice down at the boat docks. The prosecuting attorney paraded the spent rounds from the target practice in front of the jury to show how dangerous these protesters were. Entrapment once again.

This is 4/9 informants inside the refuge creating entrapment and undue influence. That’s 44%, 11% each. A pretty big number, but let’s see how it’s really even higher.

I was another informant, and I volunteered as a kitchen cook. Although I did not create entrapment, the agent contacted read these other reports while I was at the refuge. Some of the data in the reports was not my data, but information the agent read in other reports, specific information duplicated from Marshal’s report. This was evidenced while I testified, as I had to deny time and again the prosecutor’s questions about ‘my’ reports since I did not report those facts at all.

This now puts 55% of the reports in jeopardy of either entrapment or poor data gathering techniques. Does anyone really believe the other 45% of the reports were done any better? Or should all the reports be thrown out?

Well, we can go one step further on informant reports. Informants gather their information through hearsay.

Hearsay

A statement made out of court that is offered in court as evidence to prove the truth of the matter asserted.

It is the job of the judge or jury in a court proceeding to determine whether evidence offered as proof is credible. Three evidentiary rules help the judge or jury make this determination:

  1. Before being allowed to testify, a witness generally must swear or affirm that his or her testimony will be truthful.
  2. The witness must be personally present at the trial or proceeding in order to allow the judge or jury to observe the testimony firsthand.
  3. The witness is subject to cross-examination at the option of any party who did not call the witness to testify.

In keeping with the three evidentiary requirements, the Hearsay Rule, as outlined in the Federal Rules of Evidence, prohibits most statements made outside a courtroom from being used as evidence in court.

Hearsay is gathered through informants, placed into evidence as fact, and a defendant cannot face his accuser. Therefore one can easily argue the removal of the informant program as a whole.

Please realize the informants have no legal training or required education, yet their testimony is heavily protected in court. Furthermore, none of the informants knew who the other informants were. None of the informants saw their own reports for final approval for accuracy.

Informant’s agents were reading other reports, some biased, some clear entrapment, which skewed the results of the overall accuracy of the data in a manner well over 50%. This is called good police work? Not in any sense of the word could it be considered ‘good’.

To top it all off, the journalist who researched these ‘sealed’ reports, and exposed the entrapment, Gary Hunt, is now sitting in jail. How dare he get a hold of public hearing evidence and dig for the truth! How dare Gary get a hold of redacted reports, where mass data is blocked out to hide the informant’s identity, in a public… let me repeat, PUBLIC trial, where the redacted reports remained sealed from the public even after the trial!

It’s amazing to me that we even have a Bill of Rights with all this constant hiding of evidence. I say how dare the government even think this is acceptable in America.Terri Linnell is known as “Mama Bear” to the Patriot community.

YOUR ACTIVITY ON SOCIAL MEDIA CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Redoubt News.com

June 3, 2017

by Loren Edward Pearce

In early April, I had the privilege of visiting Dave Bundy, the brother of Ammon Bundy and son of Cliven Bundy, who have been in prison for 500 days as of June 8, 2017…without a finding of guilty or a conviction by a jury.

A more friendly, kind and congenial person than Dave Bundy is hard to find. Speaking to him through a poor quality computer screen with poor audio, he didn’t want to talk about his legal matters. We talked about family, hobbies, and finally, spiritual things because it was Sunday.

Dave Bundy

Although Dave did not want to talk about legal matters, the subject was heavy on my mind as I looked at the quality of character of Dave Bundy and I came to grips that this was not fiction but fact, that my country was capable of doing something so unjust.

I decided to go back to the original detention hearing for Dave Bundy.  After extensive analysis of the government’s position and comparing it to similar cases, I conclude that the depth and breadth of injustice is truly outrageous. And. something that should have all Americans, deeply troubled.

One of the lessons that has come out of all the Bundy et al trials and hearings, is the fact that activity on social media, and especially Facebook, has been one of the main tools used by the federal team (judge, prosecutors, federal agencies) to bring charges of criminal wrong doing and to justify pretrial detention.

So, that raises the question, when is and when isn’t my activity on social media, including Facebook and YouTube, not protected activity? When can prosecutors use my statements to indict me and then trample on the presumption of innocence and punish me without a conviction by throwing me in prison with all the horrors that prison life entails (sleep deprivation, bad food, bad smells, strip searches, sexual abuse, brutal guards, absence from family, absence from jobs and businesses, etc)

In the 37 page detention hearing document by the federal team asking for pretrial detention of Dave Bundy, the federal team sought to convince their co-worker, the judge, to detain Dave Bundy under the Bail Reform Act. The government stated:

“Most nefariously – and perhaps most relevant to the detention decision here – Bundy and his sons, including D. Bundy, recruited gunmen to come to Nevada to confront the federal officers issuing calls-to-arms over the internet to anyone who would listen to come to Bundy Ranch to confront the officers who were executing the federal court orders to impound the cattle.” (page 8)

The prosecution alleged that Dave broke the law by using the internet to recruit gunmen. However, the federal team failed to prove that such activity actually happened and if it did, was not protected by the 1st amendment.

Throughout the 37 page document by the federal team, is a rambling tirade against the Bundy family and an attempt to imply that Dave was guilty by association. Not until page 16 does the federal team become specific in its accusations against Dave.

Trying to exploit the anger that any citizen would feel following having his face slammed into the ground, when no crime was being committed, the federal team tried to use this internet source against Dave Bundy:

“The following day, D. Bundy was released from custody with citations including one for resisting arrest. He was interviewed about his arrest in a video which was posted to YouTube shortly thereafter where it was widely viewed and shared, stating: . . . l looked at that officer and l told him, l said “”l don’t let anybody tromp my face in the ground.”‘ l says “l would like to meet you in an alley,”` is what l told him_, and l hope the media covers that and he gets that message, cause l’m still looking for him…. There was a woman that kinda seemed to be in charge, at least of what they were doing with me, and her name was . . . and she came into the passenger seat and was asking me questions and l said “Mrs. . . . , l don’t have to answer anything to you,” and she goes to me “l am Officer . . . ,” and l says ““to me you’re nothing . . .”’ (page 18)

Then, the government cited the following post:

On January 4, 2016, D. Bundy posted a lengthy message on his Facebook page, stating: lt is real easy to idly stand by, say all is well ye zion prosper standing idle in carnal security looking tuff speaking bold_. but when there is an opportunity to stand up against the evils and tyranny that is encircling around all of us your types are nowhere to be found but behind the scenes scrutinizing those who have the patriotism, zeal for country, commitment to the constitution and understand the devine responsibility that is ours to defend what we fought for so valiantly in the pre mortal, AGENCY. l fully believe in Edler Oaks’s talk, we must be cautious not to fall into extremism, we must seek the spirits guidance in all we do.`However l also believe in obeying the thousands of other Prophets and Apostles warnings and pleadings to stand for agency, freedom and with the divine U.S. Constitution. l believe that we should be law abiding citizens so far as it is Constitutional as we are directed so in the 98th section of the D_octrine and Covenants. I have personally quest_i__on_ed the recent strategies taken by my brothers However let me make-it very clear that l 100%`-agree and will defend the principles that drive_. their commitment There-” ve’b_een”‘ “ ” aggressious act of blatant tyranny upon many multiple land users in Carney Co.

Ironically, the government is using a personal opinion piece by Dave that is actually favorable to him. In this post, Dave analyzes the opinions of church leaders and his own beliefs and acknowledges that he questions the strategies of his brothers. Does that sound like a dangerous person talking? More, importantly does the exceed the boundaries of activity protected by the 1st Amendment?

Bunkerville Defendants Back In Court Today

by Shari Dovale

Four of the first round of defendants in the Bunkerville Trials in Las Vegas were dealt a mistrial recently. They were back in court today for motion hearings in preparation for their upcoming retrial.

Some of the highlights included the Judge ruling that the defendants will not be able to use the First and Second Amendments to the US Constitution in their defense. This is not a new ruling, it is just being reiterated to the defense that the Constitution is not allowed in Judge Navarro’s courtroom.

Though the Federal government and the State of Nevada recognize the people’s right to open carry, Judge Gloria Navarro has made it quite clear that, in her mind, anytime a person is open-carrying a weapon and a law enforcement officer happens to see that weapon, then that is evidence of a threat to the officer and is considered assault.

That would indicate that the US Constitution is being used against the citizens of this country!

If citizens choose to exercise their rights, as guaranteed by the US Constitution, and if the government were to arrest them on Federal charges, as stated by this Federal Judge, would that mean that the US Constitution no longer exists?

Eric Parker’s attorney was not in court today, so Eric was told that he could “share” another attorney or raise his hand when he had a question. He did have questions.

Parker asked about the recent airing of the PBS Frontline TV show “American Patriot”. The PBS producers used Sealed Discovery Evidence in their production. Parker asked the Judge if there was going to be an investigation into this or, if not, will she lift the seal for the defendants to now share the discovery? She did not take his question, instead telling him that his attorney needs to file another motion.

The prosecution has now raised the issue of “Speedy Trial” in their arguments. The defense, in trying to set the schedule, suggested the court recess during the Independence Day holiday week, beginning trial afterwards. The prosecution objected as this would be an unnecessary delay.

These statements are from the same folks that have kept these defendants incarcerated for 14 months, and stated they would be within their rights to continue to hold them ~pre-trial and pre-conviction~ for up to five years.

The Speedy Trial argument is only allowed when it is convenient for the government?

Eric Parker asked why the “Tier One” defendants, including Cliven Bundy, couldn’t be included in this upcoming trial, in the interest of a “Speedy Trial”. That issue was slapped down by Judge Navarro pretty fast.

Trials and Protests – Update from Pahrump!

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

By Shari Dovale and John Lamb

Lots of news coming out of Nevada this week.

The first tier of Bunkerville defendants are awaiting a status hearing next week, mostly for motions and other items related to the re-trial of their case.

Todd Engel (photo: Facebook)

The prosecutors have said that they will not be charging Todd Engel or Greg Burleson again on the charges the jury deadlocked over. Each was found guilty on lesser charges and are scheduled for sentencing in July.

Engel was found guilty of two charges and the Prosecutors are asking for “Terrorism” enhancements for his sentencing. He is now facing a possible 30 years in prison, due to these enhancements

Burleson was found guilty of 8 out of 10 possible charges and faces a total of 57 years in prison. The prosecutors are not asking for the same terrorism enhancements against Burleson.

The remaining four defendants will be re-tried beginning June 26, 2017. The second tier defendants, which include Cliven Bundy, will not begin their trial until 30 days after this one is completed. The trial is expected to take up to another couple of months, so the second trial is not expected before September at the earliest, more likely October or November.

This will put the trial of the third tier defendants out until next Spring. Most of these defendants have been in custody over 470 days now. This will put their pre-trial incarceration to 2 years, in most cases.

tea party leaderJerry Delemus

Jerry Delemus was one of the first defendants to reach a plea arrangement with the government. Based on reports, he was coerced into making the agreement as his friends and family were targeted for arrest if he did not agree.

As soon as the first Oregon trial ended in October 2016, Delemus filed for a hearing to have his plea changed. He has waited for months to get his hearing.

Judge Gloria Navarro has finally ruled that Delemus will not receive a hearing and has scheduled him for sentencing later this month.

Reports are surfacing that Blaine Cooper is expected to testify against all of the defendants in Nevada. Cooper has stated that he will cooperate in order to get a reduced sentence for himself. Prosecutors have suggested a six year sentence for Cooper.

Camp Liberty is holding strong despite the ferocious winds that prevail. They have raised, at last count, over $25,000 for the defense of Ammon Bundy. They continue to protest, and are garnering support from the local community.

Though they had originally set up camp on the roadside across from the Pahrump Detention facility, and had been there for couple of weeks, the acting under-sheriff paid them a visit this week. Though he was polite about his message, he was very clear that they had 24 hours to get a permit or leave, as they now faced trespassing charges.

A local Patriot came to their aid and gave them leave to camp on their property, which is actually a better location right behind the Facility. They have set up and been supplied with all the food they can eat. The only thing they might be needing is basic camping supplies for those that did not bring enough, such as sleeping bags and tents. Tarps would also be nice to use as wind breaks.

Malheur II - What Judge Brown DID NOT Allow This WeekBut the government keeps trying to throw curve balls at the protesters. Earlier this week, Brand Thornton attempted to visit the prisoners in the facility. Many of you may remember that Judge Anna Brown in Oregon has dubbed him “Mr. Shofar”.

Thorton had his shofar with him when the guards decided it was a dangerous weapon, and even called it a bow-and-arrow. A SWAT team surrounded him and he has now been banned from the facility completely.

CoreCivic (formerly known as CCA) is a privately contracted company to run the Southern Nevada Detention Facility in Pahrump, as well as other facilities. This facility is strictly a holding place for those that have not been to trial, or not been sentenced. From here, the prisoners get moved to permanent locations.

It must be considered low security as many of the “guards” are only armed with batons and pepper spray. There are very few guards with firearms.

However,these glorified rent-a-cops have allowed power to take them over, They use this power against prisoners, and now the protesters.

They have filed multiple false reports of protesters violating their space. Violations that include (falsely) that protesters stepped across the boundary lines and onto prison property, or that protesters slapped a moving prison bus. These reports are going nowhere, as it has been proven by video that they are false. Yet, the guards continue to attempt heartache with more reports.

The protesters will not give up easily though. For now they are camped behind the prison, making daily treks around the compound in their “Jericho March.”

They continue to raise money and see support from the local residents. The can receive mail from the postmaster, addressed to:

Camp Liberty
1776 East Mesquite Avenue
Pahrump, NV 89048

They are accepting 2 types of donations. First for the defense of the prisoners, and second for the continued protest. They do not need much for their stand outside the prison, however, they do provide transportation help to others that would like to come and be a part of the protest.
