Ammon Bundy Shackled for 12 Hours

Bundy Battle - Nevada, CORRUPTION

No Food or Water

Redoubt News.com

May 3, 2017

by Shari Dovale

After spending more than a month in Solitary Confinement, Ammon and Ryan Bundy are back in the hole.

Ammon and Ryan Bundy, two of Cliven Bundy’s sons facing trial stemming from the Bunkerville Protest, have been faced with cruel and inhuman abuses from the Federal prison system.

They have endured weeks of solitary confinement with no proper sewage or hygiene. Living in a small cell with little-to-no ventilation all because they finally refused to be assaulted on a regular basis through strip searches.

They have endured strip searches going to and from video visits. Yes, you heard that right. If they receive a visit on a TV monitor, in a building that has no physical visitors and no way for a prisoner to come into contact with anyone that is not a guard, they have been forced into a strip search both coming and going from their visit.

They are not allowed to talk to their attorney’s without enduring strip searches, both coming and going.

When they finally had enough of the violation of their 4th amendment rights, the guards put them into solitary confinement. This small cell had no proper water or sewage facilities. The toilets did not work. They were given no toilet paper, or any other hygiene items.

They were kept in this small cell for over a month.

From an update by Lisa Bundy, Ammon’s wife, we hear this:

Just a few days after their release from Solitary, a guard found a shirt on Ammon’s cot. The guard decided that was a violation and shackled Ammon before putting him back to solitary.

Ryan tried to speak up for his brother and was also put into solitary.

But, they left Ammon shackled with his hands behind his back. He had been forced to sleep through the night while shackled.

He is still in the shackles! He has been shackled, without food or water for over 12 hours!

Has the warden been made aware of this? We need to make him understand.

We also hear from Pete Santilli, via Deb Jordan, here:

 

This morning Pete told me that: Last night Ammon and Ryan Bundy were once again sent to the hole — He went to the Chief and asked that he please do something about Ammon and Ryan being targeted by the guards — You can literally see their eyes on them watching their every move, Pete said — Some of the guards understand this and are sympathetic but it does little good —

Anyway, they were sleeping when it happened — Pete is a bit away from them so was not a witness but talked to those who were —

Pete says: Ammon reportedly fell asleep with a unauthorized shirt on his rack — “It is not uncommon for us to roll up a shirt and use it as a pillow — or maybe Ammon just forgot it was the there, either way, the guard saw it and started harassing him — at some point Ryan came over and grabbed the shirt from the CO’s hands — and that’s why he is in trouble —

This morning I spoke with the Chief who is being a real tuff guy asshole — I told him this was bullshit and that there were plenty of witnesses who saw what happened — He said —

“Then they need to fill out a report”

I then asked, ” So you want me to tell everyone to fill out a report?”

He answered ” Sure, and when you do, I’m going to charge you with trying to start an insurrection .. ”

Pete also said that Ammon and Ryan have tried desperately to do their best to stay under the radar since they spent 40 days in the hole — The bottom line is they are being targeted — The Guards are using anything as an excuse to punish them — or anyone who tries to take up for them ..

The last Pete heard, Ammon had been confined to a small space, shackled overnight, with no food or water —

 

But, even assuming the worst case scenario, that doesn’t warrant 12 hours shackled in 2×8 cell and no food or water. This really is Cruel and Inhumane treatment.

We cannot allow this to continue. We must contact the prison, and all of your elected officials. This abuse must stop. These men have NOT been convicted of any crime. They have been incarcerated, without bail, for well over a year. The trial has been pushed back again, so their rights to a speedy trial continue to be violated.

Our Constitution guarantees that these men should be assumed innocent until proven guilty. Is this how innocent men are treated? Is this how you would expect to be treated under similar circumstances?

Does anyone have a family member, or a friend, that was unjustly arrested? Forced to defend themselves of charges that were untrue? Should they have been treated this way?

This is our Federal Government. This is what the people have not been paying attention to.

It is time to grab their attention.

Trump orders review of monuments—

Bureau of Land Management, cattle, Dept. of INTERIOR, PRES. TRUMP

May 1, 2017

Western Livestock Journal

Power returning to states with report due in 120 days

“Today I’m signing a new executive order to end another egregious abuse of federal power and to give that power back to the states and to the people, where it belongs.”

These were the words of President Donald Trump on April 26 as he prepared to sign the “Presidential executive order on the review of designations under the Antiquities Act.” Flanked by Vice

President Mike Pence and Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke, he made his remarks before a gathering of senators, representatives and governors representing rural America.

“The previous administration used a 100-year-old law known as the Antiquities Act to unilaterally put millions of acres of land and water under strict federal control—have you heard about that?—eliminating the ability of the people who actually live in those states to decide how best to use that land,” Trump continued.

“Today, we are putting the states back in charge. It’s a big thing.”

He specifically mentioned former President Barack Obama’s designation of the Bear Ears National Monument in December of last year. That 1.35-millionacre designation was done in spite of “the profound objections of the citizens of Utah,” Trump said.

Order details

The executive order consists of two sections. Section 1 explains that “designations that result from a lack of public outreach and proper coordination with state, tribal, and local officials and other relevant stakeholders” can “create barriers to achieving energy independence, restrict public access to and use of federal lands, burden state, tribal, and local governments, and otherwise curtail economic growth.”

“Designations should be made in accordance with the requirements and original objectives of the Act,” it states, “and appropriately balance the protection of landmarks, structures, and objects against the appropriate use of federal lands and the effects on surrounding lands and communities.”

Section 2 calls upon Zinke to perform a review of every monument designated since 1996 that covers more than 100,000 acres or that was made or expanded “without adequate public outreach and coordination with relevant stakeholders…” The order directs the secretary to consider the following points:

  • The requirements and original objectives of the Act, including the Act’s requirement that reservations of land not exceed “the smallest area compatible with the proper care and management of the objects to be protected;”

  • Whether designated lands are appropriately classified under the Act as “historic landmarks, historic and prehistoric structures, [or] other objects of historic or scientific interest;”

  • The effects of a designation on the available uses of designated federal lands, including consideration of the multiple-use policy of … the Federal Land Policy and Management Act …, as well as the effects on the available uses of federal lands beyond the monument boundaries;

  • The effects of a designation on the use and enjoyment of non-federal lands within or beyond monument boundaries;

  • Concerns of state, tribal, and local governments affected by a designation including the economic development and fiscal condition of affected states, tribes, and localities;

  • The availability of federal resources to properly manage designated areas; and

  • Such other factors as the secretary deems appropriate.

The order goes on to direct Zinke to consult and coordinate with the governors and local officials of the affected states and localities.

Within 120 days of the order (late August), Zinke is to provide the president a final report summarizing the findings of his review. The report is to include “recommendations for such presidential actions, legislative proposals, or other actions consistent with law as the secretary may consider appropriate…”

An “interim report” will be provided to the president within 45 days, or in mid- June.

Livestock industry support

The order has been hailed by groups such as PLC (Public Lands Council) and NCBA (National Cattlemen’s Beef Association), which issued a press release stating that the Obama administration alone “[locked] up 256 million acres of land and water in 30 separate designations.”

The groups pointed to two specific monuments that could be affected by the order. One was the 1.9-millionacre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah, designated by President Bill Clinton in 1996. Livestock grazing on the monument has since been reduced from 106,000 Animal Unit Months (AUMs) to just 35,000 AUMs, according to PLC and NCBA.

The groups also mentioned the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, located in Oregon and Northern California. It was initially created by Clinton and amounted to 53,000 acres—until Obama expanded it by another 48,000 acres in his final weeks in office.

“This expansion will effectively prohibit logging on approximately 35,000 acres, adding to the risk of wildfire as fuel loads increase, and negatively affecting the economy of multiple counties within the monument,” the groups asserted. It has also had negative impacts on grazing.

PLC and NCBA added that, while the order is an important first step, Congress must act to bring the Antiquities Act back to its original intent. They pointed specifically to a bill introduced by Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), S. 33, the Improved National Monument Designation Process Act. It would require congressional approval of new designations.

Words from Zinke

Zinke issued a press release following the President’s signing.

“Part of being a good steward is being a good neighbor and being a good listener,” he said. “In the Trump administration, we listen and then we act. For years, the people of Utah and other rural communities have voiced concern and opposition to some monument designations. But too often in recent history, exiting presidents make designations despite those concerns.”

Under Trump’s leadership, Zinke promised, he will work with local, state and tribal governments to review monument designations made over the past 20 years and “make sure they work for the local communities.”

Court overturns restraining order on Mexican wolf releases

Dept. of INTERIOR, Wolves

May 1, 2017

Western Livestock Journal, page 16

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed a lower court’s temporary restraining order that was preventing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) from releasing Mexican wolves in New Mexico without the state’s permission. As of the appellate court’s ruling on April 25, the federal government is free to continue releasing captivebred Mexican gray wolves in New Mexico—for now.

But the federal-statebalance argument over the struggling wolf program is far from over. The ruling is just one step in an ongoing case filed last June by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) against USFWS. The NMDGF is challenging USFWS’ authority to release the wolves, which are considered “endangered” under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), without obtaining the state-required permits to do so.

“New Mexico state law continues to prohibit the release of imported animals in the state,” said Lance Cherry, a NMDGF spokesman, in an email to WLJ, “and federal law requires that the federal government comply with state permit requirements prior to releasing wildlife.”

He said New Mexico’s case will continue to move forward. Additional details about the challenge can be found in a September 2016 written statement from the NMDGF Director Alexandra Sandoval to the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee.

“[W]hile no one single factor is to blame for the lack of success recovering the Mexican wolf,” wrote Sandoval, “one factor looms larger than others, the [USFWS’] failure to cooperate with the states.”

Notably, the NMDGF’s challenge is being supported by eight amicus curiae briefs, including one filed by 18 states. The New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association (NMCGA) and the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau are also supporting it.

Hoping for change

WLJ spoke to Caren Cowan, executive director of the NMCGA. She was hopeful that the new administration will “take a hard look” at the Mexican wolf program. She said that despite their relatively low numbers (last count was 113 in the wild) the wolves have been a source of hardship for the ranching community.

Indeed, back in July 2016 the Department of the Interior’s Office of the Inspector General released a report concluding that in New Mexico, USFWS was mishandling nuisance wolves and stonewalling ranchers’ attempts at acquiring compensation for depredated livestock.

Compared to past administrations, President Donald Trump’s administration could be a different animal when it comes to wolves. Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke, a former congressman for Montana, is on record as having voted multiple times to delist the Northern Rocky Mountain gray wolf.

More moving parts

Cowan said the 10th Circuit ruling was just one of many moving parts regarding the wolf. For example, after speaking to WLJ she was about to walk into a court hearing regarding the wolf’s “experimental population status,” which will affect the size and location of “wolf zones” and ranchers’ ability to deal with problem wolves.

Additionally, she said she “has it on good authority” that USFWS could be releasing a recovery plan in the next 60 days. The lack of a recovery plan has been another source of litigation, and last year a federal judge ordered USFWS to come up with a plan by the end of November 2017.

While Cowan was skeptical that the recovery plan would be palatable to the livestock industry or the states, she did acknowledge that a recovery plan is necessary.

“We need a population goal before we can get these wolves delisted,” she told WLJ. “Until then, there’s no limit to how much they can multiply—and still have ESA protections that make it hard, if not impossible, to live with them.”

Sandoval’s statement to Congress echoed the need for a recovery goal. “Given the lack of current measurable and objective recovery criteria, New Mexico remains in the dark about important recovery questions—how many wolves constitute a recovered population and where these wolves will occur. Forty years into the program, New Mexico should not be as in the dark on these issues as it is.”

National Day of Prayer, 2017

PRES. TRUMP

May 4, 2017

By the President of the United States of America

A Proclamation

            We come together on our National Day of Prayer as one Nation, under God, to show gratitude for our many blessings, to give thanks for His providence, and to ask for His continued wisdom, strength, and protection as we chart a course for the future.  We are united in prayer, each according to our own faith and tradition, and we believe that in America, people of all faiths, creeds, and religions must be free to exercise their natural right to worship according to their consciences.

            We are also reminded and reaffirm that all human beings have the right, not only to pray and worship according to their consciences, but to practice their faith in their homes, schools, charities, and businesses ‑‑ in private and in the public square ‑‑ free from government coercion, discrimination, or persecution.  Religion is not merely an intellectual exercise, but also a practical one that demands action in the world.  Even the many prisoners around the world who are persecuted for their faith can pray privately in their cells.  But our Constitution demands more:  the freedom to practice one’s faith publicly.

            The religious liberty guaranteed by the Constitution is not a favor from the government, but a natural right bestowed by God.  Our Constitution and our laws that protect religious freedom merely recognize the right that all people have by virtue of their humanity.  As Thomas Jefferson wisely questioned:  “can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?”

            In 1789, President George Washington proclaimed a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, calling upon Americans to “unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations.”  In 1988, the Congress, by Public Law 100-307, called on the President to issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a “National Day of Prayer.”  On this National Day of Prayer, the right to pray freely and live according to one’s faith is under threat around the world from coercive governments and terrorist organizations.  We therefore pray especially for the many people around the world who are persecuted for their beliefs and deprived of their fundamental liberty to live according to their conscience.  We pray for the triumph of freedom over oppression, and for God’s love and mercy over evil.

            NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 4, 2017, as a National Day of Prayer.  I invite the citizens of our Nation to pray, in accordance with their own faiths and consciences, in thanksgiving for the freedoms and blessings we have received, and for God’s guidance and continued protection as we meet the challenges before us.

            IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this

fourth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-first.

                                                                        DONALD J. TRUMP

Citizens File Lawsuit Against State of California

JEFFERSON DECLARATION, Lawsuits, Liberty

May 3, 2017

Citizens for Fair Representation (CFR) will file a lawsuit against the State of California for lack of representation and dilution of vote. CFR represents citizens from 21 rural counties in the northern area of the State. A long list of plaintiffs have joined CFR in the lawsuit, representing a diversity of cultures, ages, races and political philosophy.

Over the last 3 years, most of these plaintiffs have petitioned the California State Legislature and Secretary of State seeking equal/fair representation, Tens of thousands of letters, phone calls and emails have gone out to their elected representatives, requesting they introduce a Bill or Resolution, creating a more representative balance in both legislative chambers. The plaintiffs have personally visited individual legislative offices, but plaintiffs claim that all requests have gone ignored, leaving them no choice but to now enter the legal process.

Currently, California’s population is just under 40 million, represented by 40 State Senators and 80 Assembly members. The same number of elected representatives that in 1862 represented 416,640 people.

Prior to 1964, just about every County was represented by one State Senator. Today a California State Senator represents an average of 1 million people, with each assembly member, representing 500,000. Currently, 11 northern rural counties have one Senator whose vote is diluted by 15 senators representing the single County of Los Angeles.

California’s imbalance of representation ranks the worst on the list of 50 States. The small state of New Hampshire has 400 in their State House of Representatives, with one representative for less than 4,000 people. There are 24 State Senators, or 1 for every 55,000 citizens. New Hampshire’s ratio of balance closely models the representation that CFR is seeking to accomplish. If CFR is successful, this would be history in the making, not only for their 21 counties, but all of California’s 58 counties and those in other states.

Claimants state, “California’s refusal to increase its levels of representation to reflect its exponential population growth is both arbitrary and unconstitutional. “

The case, Citizens for Fair Representation vs Secretary of State Alex Padilla, will be filed on May 8th, in the United States District Court, Eastern District of California, Sacramento Division. Citizens for Fair Representation is a 501(C)(4), a non profit corporation.

Sheriff’s Office Recovers Body from Klamath River in Happy Camp Area

Sheriff Jon Lopey, Siskiyou Sheriff's report

Link with Missing Happy Camp Man Under Investigation

 

On May 4, 2017 at about 2:05 p.m. the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) Search and Rescue (SAR) Coordinator, Deputy Mike Burns, reported that he located the body of a deceased adult in the Klamath River about two miles upriver (east of) Wingate, in the Happy Camp area.  The body has not been identified and it unknown if it is the body of a man last seen floating in the Klamath River on April 14th.  The SCSO has been searching for a body last seen in the Klamath River at the Indian Creek Access point since Friday, April 14, 2017.  On Friday, April 14, 2017, at about 6:34 p.m. SCSO received a citizen’s report of a possible dead body floating in Indian Creek in the Happy Camp area.  A SCSO deputy arrived at the 2nd Avenue Bridge and observed what appeared to be the body of a heavy-set male adult floating in the river in swift-moving water.  A search by SCSO and California Highway Patrol (CHP) units failed to locate the body as it entered the Klamath River access point.  The Klamath River and other tributaries have been flowing rapidly and are muddy due to recent snow run-off and intermittent rains and water levels are very high.  An exhaustive search of the area has been conducted by SCSO SAR, Posse, CHP Northern Division Air Operations fixed-wing and rotary wing aircraft, and, extensive assistance and support has been received by Karuk, Hoopa, and Yurok tribal emergency response and various volunteer resources.  The U.S. Coast Guard, California Army National Guard, and California Office of Emergency Services also assisted with the search and recovery efforts implemented since April 14th.

In recent days, the SCSO’s Search and Rescue (SAR) team, SCSO Water Safety Unit, SCSO Dive Team, SCSO Posse members, SCSO Major Crimes Unit, and SCSO field units and other SCSO personnel have supported the on-going search effort.  A SCSO boat, Dive Team, and SAR leader have recovered the body from the river and it is being transported to Yreka.  The body recovery is being handled by investigators as a possible homicide.  The CHP has also made recent fly-overs of the area with fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft in an effort to locate the body.

Shortly after the initial search for the suspected dead body was started, relatives of a Happy Camp man reported him missing.  At this time, it is unknown if the body recovered from the Klamath River by SCSO Dive and SAR personnel is that of Mr. Benjamin Arthur Camarena, 42, of Happy Camp.  He was last seen in the Indian Creek area in the Happy Camp area at about the time the body in the river was reported on April 14th.

SCSO detective units have made a number of trips to Happy Camp to gather information and to interview more people who may have known what Mr. Camarena was doing in the hours and moments before his disappearance. SCSO investigators have classified his disappearance as “suspicious” and have not ruled out any investigative conclusions surrounding his absence from the local community, and the case is being handled as a possible homicide.

According to Sheriff Jon Lopey, “I am saddened that we have recovered the body of a deceased adult in the Klamath River but the recovery of the decedent should afford us the opportunity to determine whether or not the body is that of Mr. Camarena and we will have the opportunity to determine the cause and manner of death of the adult we have found, which, should provide important answers for this agency and the decedent’s family and friends.  I know family and friends of Mr. Camarena are very concerned and we share those concerns as well.  We will do all we can to positively identify the body found and provide answers to the family members of the decedent as soon as possible.  An autopsy will be performed within the next few days to help investigators determine the cause and manner of death in this case.  I am grateful that the SCSO specialized and field units; SCSO volunteers such and the SAR and Posse, CHP, U.S. Coast Guard, California Army National Guard, U.S. Forest Service, Karuk, Yurok, and Hoopa Tribal emergency response personnel, family members, and volunteers have been willing to assist with this important 20-day search operation.  Anyone with any information about the dead body or anyone with information about Mr. Camarena’s disappearance is urged to contact the SCSO’s 24-hour Dispatch Center at (530) 841-2900.”
