Militia members and states’ rights activists rallied Monday to declare victory after a weekend standoff with federal agents who had sought to seize a rancher’s cattle.

But along a short stretch of desert two-lane highway where hundreds of protesters and openly armed challengers caused the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to leave without the cattle they sought, no one thinks the battle is over.

The agency had come to remove several hundred head of cattle that rancher Cliven Bundy and his family had put on federal land after refusing to pay grazing fees and ignoring court orders for 20 years.

The Bundys insist that Nevada rightfully owns the land that the BLM claims and that state law allows them to graze cattle there as they and their ancestors have done since acquiring the water rights in the late 1800s. When the protesters moved to release a few hundred corralled cattle Saturday, federal officials ordered agents to stand down and avoid an armed conflict.

“It’s going to take the people standing up, making it right,” said Ammon Bundy, a grown son of Bundy’s who works the ranch. “One man standing up can get buffaloed, (but) when the people stand together, they get it right.”

He said he hopes that a judge may now feel political pressure to reject the federal claims and affirm his family’s grazing right to the 600,000 sparsely vegetated acres in dispute.

BLM Director Neil Kornze issued a statement saying the agency removed its officers “because of our serious concerns about the safety of employees and members of the public.”

‘Matter of fairness’

“Ranching has always been an important part of our nation’s heritage and continues throughout the West on public lands that belong to all Americans,” he said. “This is a matter of fairness and equity, and we remain disappointed that Cliven Bundy continues to not comply with the same laws that 16,000 public-lands ranchers do every year.”

Kornze said that after various court orders, Bundy owes the government more than $1 million and that the BLM will work to resolve the dispute “administratively and judicially.”

Federal authorities were gone by Monday, but the hills overlooking Bundy’s ranch were sprinkled with militia sentries. Armed men in desert camouflage fatigues stopped and questioned anyone attempting to enter the drive to Bundy’s ranch home.

Throughout the BLM’s attempt to seize Bundy’s cattle, social-media alerts sent privately organized militia members and self-described Oath Keepers — former soldiers and first responders pledging to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic” — packing for

Militias, activists celebrate halt of cattle roundup <!–<!–<!– [if lt IE 9]>https://www.gannett-cdn.com/uxstatic/azcentral/uscp-web-static-2423.0/js/libs/html5shiv-printshiv.jshttps://www.gannett-cdn.com/uxstatic/azcentral/uscp-web-static-2423.0/js/libs/respond/respond.min.js<![endif]–>

We need to start telling people this could possibly be the spark of the next American Revolution,” said Robert Sands, a 23-year-old Marine veteran from Boise, Idaho, who said he was a member of the United States Militia, the Idaho Light Foot Militia and the Oath Keepers.

He leaned on a table near the demonstration area Sunday evening with a pump-action shotgun slung over his chest, then guarded Bundy’s ranch access Monday.

Sands said he could not offer an opinion on land management or the family’s refusal to pay fees and said he came in response to what he saw as an overbearing federal action against a citizen’s attempt to make a living.

Several Arizona lawmakers, as well as activists and militia members, flocked to this rural outpost near Mesquite, within sight of the Arizona Strip’s stubby hills.

“The Bureau of Land Management is overreaching, and Arizona is (also) in the crosshairs,” Arizona State Sen. Judy Burges, R-Sun City West, said in explaining her attendance Monday. Western states are under siege by federal land regulations, she said, and she wanted the Bundys and Nevadans to know they aren’t alone.

“I stand with them,” she said.

State Rep. David Livingston, R-Peoria, stood on the platform Monday with Burges and other Bundy supporters, though neither spoke.

‘Out of control’

“I took an oath (upon election),” Livingston said afterward. “That oath is to protect the people. The government’s out of control, and the federal government is not protecting the people.”

He said the federal government should cede Western lands to the states so they can sell them to help fund education and state programs.

“This is not over,” he said. “On Saturday we won a battle. This could be a lifelong war.”

County supervisors from Apache and Greenlee counties also came to show their support on Monday, and U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz.; state Sen. Kelli Ward, R-Lake Havasu City; Rep. Kelly Townsend, R-Apache Junction; and Rep. Bob Thorpe, R-Flagstaff, visited the ranch over the weekend.

The Bundys paid grazing fees to the BLM until the early 1990s, around the time the agency began managing the range to protect endangered desert tortoises. Ammon Bundy said the tortoise wasn’t the sole source of the dispute but was one in a series of regulations that sent the family researching its rights.

BLM chastised

After the BLM started rounding up the cattle but before it backed off, the Center for Biological Diversity had issued a statement praising the agency for “finally living up to their stewardship duty” and protecting the tortoises.

After the standoff, the center’s Nevada senior scientist, Rob Mrowka, chastised the agency for stopping.

“The BLM has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest, to treat all users equally and fairly,” he said. “Instead, it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.

“This is absolutely pathetic and an insult to ranchers and others who hold permits and pay their required fees to use the public lands for profit.”

Nearly 300 people gathered Monday afternoon near a bridge on the Virgin River where the conflict had come to a head Saturday and then dissolved. A banner on the fence behind them read, “The West has now been won!”

Above them flew three flags: Clark County’s, Nevada’s and America’s, in that order from top to bottom and in an apparent nod to many protesters’ view that federal agents have no constitutionally valid law-enforcement powers. Cliven Bundy challenged the crowd to insist that their sheriffs disarm BLM and National Park Service rangers and other federal powers in their counties.

“Every county sheriff across the United States: Take the guns away from the United States bureaucrats,” Bundy said.

BLM chastised

 

 

 

 

 

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Carol Bundy sits alone in the living room of her family’s home, restlessly awaiting word that a federal jury is ready to render its verdict on the fate of “the custom and culture of the West; the cowboy way of life.”

Outside the front window, a sprinkler splashes water onto a small square of grass. Inside, a washing machine with worn bearings grinds through another load.

It’s hard to imagine this pastoral setting, past the concrete walkway and on the other side of a wagon-wheel entry gate, as the staging ground of what nearly became the 21st century’s first range war.

Three years ago this month, more than 400 ranchers, militia members and protesters from every state in the union congregated in front of this modest house off a dirt road in one of Nevada’s remote desert corners.

Hundreds brought guns, others brought signs. They came in answer to a social-media call to arms, to mount a show of force against federal agents who had court orders to seize Cliven Bundy’s cattle from federal lands, where the family has grazed them for more than a hundred years.

The standoff lasted six days before the agents, outnumbered and flanked by gunmen in a dusty wash about seven miles from the ranch house, abandoned their mission and released 300 head of cattle from a makeshift pen beneath Interstate 15.

This was where the West was won again, protesters proclaimed. No shots were fired and no arrests were made. Then.

But the government came back last year. Seventeen protesters, including Cliven Bundy and four of his sons, were arrested on conspiracy and weapons charges. They have been held in a Nevada correctional facility without bail for more than a year.

Carol Bundy, in an interview with The Republic, said her husband, sons and others are really being tried for making federal authorities look bad and forcing them to back down in the face of a citizen uprising.

“When we made our stand in 2014, we embarrassed the federal government,” the 63-year-old mother of 14 told The Arizona Republic. “I say we embarrassed the federal government because they came with force and we said, ‘No. Because we have a Constitutional right to stand and we are going to stand.’ ”

She said federal prosecutors are using the court to mount their own show of force and make an example of those who exercised their First Amendment rights to peaceably assemble and their Second Amendment rights to bear arms.

“This isn’t about the truth,” Carol Bundy said. “I don’t think the truth has been told.”

As prosecutors in federal court last week delivered closing arguments against the first six defendants in the Bundy Ranch standoff, Carol Bundy and several others stood up and walked out of the courtroom.

“We walked out during (the lead prosecutor’s) speech because he was telling the jury we have no Constitutional rights,” she said. “We the people have rights.”

Prosecutors described the defendants as thugs who took the law into their own hands in an armed assault on agents from the Bureau of Land Management.

None of the Bundys are on trial yet. The six defendants, from Arizona, Idaho and Oklahoma, are the first of 17 to be tried in three separate trials based on levels of culpability.

Although the six men are considered the least culpable, militia members and government protesters who answered Bundy’s call, all 17 face identical charges. All could spend the rest of their lives in prison if convicted.

Defendants in the second trial, including Cliven Bundy and his sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy, are considered leaders of the standoff.

Carol Bundy said she doesn’t know the six men on trial. But she said every day since their trial began on Feb. 6, she and others have held a prayer vigil for them on the street outside the courthouse.

She said the outcome of this first trial will likely signal how it will end for her husband and sons.

“My husband will be 71 in a couple of weeks. I might never get to see him again,” she said.

History of a fight

Carol Bundy said she believes in the jury system, but the jury in this case has been prevented from learning the truth. She said U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro made sure the jury didn’t learn the history of Bundy’s dispute with the federal government.

Navarro also did not allow defendants to use the First and Second Amendments as a defense in the case and advised potential witnesses willing to testify in the cases that they could be subject to arrest if they admitted wrongdoing in support of the Bundys. Carol called it a threat.

“We weren’t there to break the law,” she said. “We weren’t there to have anybody get hurt,” she said. “The price of freedom isn’t free. We felt what we did was right. We still feel that way.”

The Bundy family dispute with the federal government is rooted in land, water and grazing rights going back more than 150 years.

Carol Bundy said her family doesn’t recognize the right of the federal government to own or regulate public land where the family has been grazing cattle since the 1800s.

BUNDY RANCH STANDOFF

She said her family has purchased and inherited valuable “livestock water rights” issued and owned by the state of Nevada. These rights allow the Bundys to graze their cattle on public lands.

“We don’t claim to own the land, only to use it to run cattle,” Carol Bundy said, challenging the federal government’s right to claim ownership of public land. “We believe the state of Nevada is a sovereign state.”

She said the family has established water systems and for years has been a good steward of public lands. She said the land where the family’s 500 head of cattle roam has always been considered free range.

About 20 years ago, however, she said, the Bureau of Land Management sought to enforce a new contract and demanded fees for grazing rights that put many ranch families out of business. She said her husband refused to sign the contract.

She said Cliven refused to pay the BLM and years ago sent the grazing fees to Clark County, which they recognize as a valid legal authority. But the checks were returned.

The feds meanwhile continued to rack up interest and fees while Bundy sought redress in court. He lost.

The BLM repeatedly ordered Bundy to remove his cattle from federal lands and in 2014 obtained a court order to seize his cattle as payment for more than $1 million in unpaid grazing fees.

Carol Bundy said BLM agents showed up armed and aggressive. She claims they killed cattle, threatened her relatives with arrest. A pregnant woman who protested was thrown to the ground. Her son was shocked with a stun gun three times.

“This wasn’t really happening in our country, in America, this couldn’t really be happening,” she said. “They came in like vigilantes. They came in and tore out water structures that had been there for hundreds of years. They killed my cattle, they terrorized the people of the town. They were just totally out of control.”

Federal prosecutors argued in court the case isn’t about the First or Second Amendments; that the Constitution doesn’t give people the right to threaten federal officers or prevent them from doing their jobs.

They said the Bundy’s dispute with the BLM was adjudicated and the court issued a lawful order to roundup the cattle. When ranchers and the militia made the decision to force the release of the cattle, they broke the law.

Acting Nevada U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre, who led the prosecution’s team, said there was nothing noble about the behavior of Bundy and his supporters.

“It makes them vigilantes. It makes them into people who took the law into their own hands.”

Carol Bundy said after her son was arrested, the family turned to right wing and militia websites for help in making a stand.

“Our way of life was being threatened,” she said. “This is the custom and culture of the West.”

The uprising

She said the response from people was overwhelming.

“I was totally surprised,” she said. “I am a little grandma. That lives on a little tiny farm in little tiny Bunkerville, Nevada. We didn’t expect this.”

The standoff was hailed as a victory by militia members. Ammon and Ryan Bundy cited their success at Bundy Ranch in their run-up to the siege of an Oregon wildlife refuge in 2016, also in protest of BLM policies. An Oregon federal jury acquitted Ammon, Ryan and five others in October.

Carol Bundy said the Nevada standoff was a peaceful protest about government overreach in the West. And she said the protest proved a citizens’ movement could make the government do what years of court cases could not: back down.

“It’s going to end when the American people get fed up and say we own the government,” she said. “This is what America was founded on.”

In court, the government has argued otherwise. BLM agents abandoned the roundup because they were afraid they were going to die, Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas Dickinson said. He said Bundy and his militia “used the barrel of a gun to force those officers to leave federal land.”

The jury, which began deliberations Thursday, is working through 37 pages of instructions.

Jurors must decide if the defendants were part of a criminal conspiracy who sought to impede and injure federal officers.

They also must determine if the men are guilty of assault and threatening federal officers, carrying or using a firearm in a crime of violence, obstruction of justice, interference with interstate transportation, extortion and other crimes.

“Up in Oregon, when my sons got not guilty up there, they came back down and said, ‘Oh, they’ve learned a lot.’ I just looked at them and said, ‘So did we… We’ve learned a lot, too.’ ”

That confidence hasn’t helped Carol get a good night’s sleep in the last two months. And with the verdict in the first trial imminent, she is more restless than usual.

“I believe in the jury system. I believe my family will be home soon,” she said. “When you stand with truth and righteousness, you stand with God.”

The trial of Cliven Bundy: A travesty of justice

The trial of Cliven Bundy: A travesty of justiceThe trial of Cliven Bundy: A travesty of justice April 16, 2017


— Published with Permission of AmericanThinker.com —

This week, a group of men who stood face to face with government agents and refused to back down will find out how many more years of their lives that decision will cost them, as a verdict is expected in their federal trial in Las Vegas. It is the case of United States v. Cliven Bundy, et al.

Here’s a brief look at how it all began.

“Are you really going to shoot these people if they move forward? Yes or no?”

Dennis Michael Lynch, a documentary filmmaker, yelled this pivotal question to government agents at a ranch outside Bunkerville, Nevada two years ago this month. As Lynch explained to Megyn Kelly later, he ran ahead of a group of ranchers and their supporters as they approached federal officials. The group planned to retrieve cattle the agents had taken from rancher Cliven Bundy, by force if necessary. Federal agents, you may remember, held that the land on which the cattle were grazing belonged to the government. Lynch’s purpose was to bring some reason to the rapidly escalating situation. The ranchers were “willing to die,” he said – not over some taxes and fees, but over the core belief that the federal government has limits.

Lynch may have ended a potential mêlée of men with guns ready to use them. It is difficult to view the video of the blunt New Yorker, without a weapon and arms in the air, calling to the heavily armed agents to stop “before there’s bloodshed.” The simple question, posed by an unarmed man, may have managed to impress upon the federal agents that they were about to fire on their own countrymen en masse.

The federal government did not shoot anyone that day, but the damage had already been done. Video footage of what led up to the tense moments Lynch witnessed made its way to the American public; agents were seen knocking a woman to the ground and tazing Cliven Bundy’s son over and over after he kicked a police dog that attacked him. A grisly video of dead cattle, killed in the standoff, stunned viewers. Government snipers trained their rifles on the Bundys’ supporters day and night; in response, the citizens did likewise.

Some who were there that day say it was a miracle that the standoff ended without bloodshed. Ultimately, Cliven Bundy got his cattle back – at least what was left of them.

Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) wasted no time in calling the citizens involved in the stand-off “domestic terrorists.” But Lynch – an experienced filmmaker who has recorded drug cartels on the southern border – told The Blaze that “if there was any act of terrorism, it was perpetuated by the government, not the supporters.” The citizens defended themselves – and, some say, the greater ideals of individual liberty.

And so we come to today, as the six-week trial of Bundy, et al. is likely to come to an end. But the questions regarding individual liberty and the American justice system seem to be magnified because of just how this case went down. Here are some of the reasons why.

In toto, only two days were spent on the defense. Out of that, the jury was permitted to be in the courtroom for fifteen minutes. The prosecution, on the other hand, consumed over five weeks of courtroom time to make their case. And that is only part of what looks, smells, and feels like a case of injustice – perhaps with prosecutorial and judicial misconduct added in for good measure.

Court spectators such as John Lamb, an unrelated party who traveled from Montana to watch the trial, spoke each day on a live Facebook video, after proceedings had adjourned, with notes in hand. Every afternoon, Lamb’s recounting of the trial day became more disturbing as he reported that even the most basic rights were ignored in the federal courtroom in Las Vegas. Judge Gloria Navarro told one defendant he had only three rights in her courtroom: to plead guilty, to testify on his own behalf, and to appeal his conviction, according to Lamb. Meanwhile, witnesses for the prosecution – most of them government agents – could remain in the courtroom before their own testimony. Defense witnesses were told to leave.

Other spectators confirmed Lamb’s account and more. Many of those in the courtroom carried pocket-sized Constitutions; Judge Navarro subsequently ruled that the Constitution was not allowed in the courtroom unless it was turned face-down. On April 10, a man named Neil Wampler was escorted out of the courtroom and his things collected by a U.S. marshal because he had a copy of the U.S. Constitution in his pocket that was visible to the judge.

Maureen Peltier, another trial watcher, took to Facebook April 10 after a long day in court to warn others that according to remarks made by prosecutors, “to hit ‘like’ on comments or posts or give a ‘thumbs up’ can be considered evidence to criminalize you.”

Other abuses reported by Lamb, Peltier, and others who attended the last six weeks of the trial include the following:

  • The defense was allowed to call only three witnesses; others were denied the opportunity to testify. The prosecution called over thirty and was given carte blanche to discuss any topic it deemed necessary.
  • Judge Navarro instructed defense witnesses that they were not allowed to show emotion on the stand. They could not discuss their faith, their fear during the standoff, or anything else that “might tug the heartstrings of the jury.”
  • Some federal agents for the prosecution testified under false names and were allowed to obfuscate information regarding informants they were handling at the time.
  • The defense was not allowed to cross-examine some of the prosecution’s witnesses.

Perhaps the most disturbing element of this trial involves perceived intimidation and veiled threats by the judge and the prosecution toward witnesses planned for the defense, according to courtroom observer Kelli Stewart. One brave woman defied the judicial and prosecutorial warnings and testified for the defense.

The case of Ammon Bundy is often viewed in a negative light due to his involvement in the 2015 Malheur Wildlife Takeover – an act disavowed by many even within “patriot” circles who supported the Bunkerville Standoff. Some don’t even realize that the two events are separate and unrelated. The truth is that Malheur has nothing to do with Bunkerville, and many of the defendants in this trial were not even present at the events of the former occasion.

Regardless of the nature of the incidents – even if one believes that these men should be charged and tried for their participation at Bunkerville – every one of them is entitled to a fair trial. During these proceedings, they have the right to face their accusers and to question those accusers as well as their credibility. Bundy & Company have the right to present a full and adequate defense, to call witnesses and enter material into evidence. Witnesses for the defense should not feel intimidated. U.S. Constitutions should not be barred from an American courtroom. And the defense should be awarded every consideration that the prosecution is given.

These are the rights assured to every American. They are contained in our founding documents. By ignoring the abuses apparent in this trial, we the people tacitly sanction them to be visited upon us again and again. Such as it is, the guilty verdict these men are likely to hear this week represents a true travesty of American justice.

The American justice system is showing itself as corrupt as the IRS, the EPA, and many other Federal Bureaucracies. These guys deserve a fair trial and this so called judge should be sanctioned by the bar and dismissed.

Carolyn Kiesz

I wonder if the jury is smart enough to have noticed the disparity between what the defense was allowed and the prosecution. One can only hope that the jury itself was not “stacked” agaiinst the defendants. I have NO faith whatsoever in the legal system in this Country — for the most part. Any judge who won’t allow copies of the Constitution into his/her courtroom is no judge I would trust for any form of legitimacy in a trial.

John Kernkamp

Sent to the Justice Department earlier this month –
=================================================
Please take the time to look into the conduct of Judge Gloria Navarro
in the so-called “Bunkerville Standoff Trial” being held in Las Vegas.
There are reports of serious mis-conduct appearing in various outlets,
which, I believe, deserve some investigation.

Thank you for your consideration.

Mr Kernkamp’s notice to the Justice Dept. is spot on, and it rides on a huge groundswell of disenchantment with the proceeding in Las Vegas. Judge Navarro is presiding over a grotesque caracature of a trial, one in which the “Government Interest” has overridden any sanctified concept of justice. At stake now is not just the fate of the accused, but more importantly the continued public trust, and even the continued public consent, to federal court decisions.

It appears that prosecutors and the Judge feel they have to sway this trial in their favor, or they might lose this case. Trying to “teach a lesson” or placing another mark in the win column is a sad exchange for justice. Not to mention that the founding fathers would be mortified at the blatant disrespect of the Constitution.

Well written, and it is clear, this judge had an agenda and it wasn’t for justice in any form. I want to see that woman disbarred. It is not enough that these men be found not guilty. She needs to made an example of that every citizens has a right to put their trial together with witnesses, the Constitution and other tools they feel will help their cause. That whore of the NWO, should be the one in prison.

Testimony wraps up in first Bunkerville standoff trial

Two months of testimony in the first Bunkerville standoff trial concluded Monday with a defendant’s dramatic assertion that authorities sat in foxholes waiting to shoot protesters who arrived at the site where federal agents for days had been rounding up Cliven Bundy’s cattle.

The accusation was among the last statements Idaho resident Eric Parker made to the jury before he stepped down from the witness stand late morning, after a day and a half spent testifying in his own defense. Closing arguments are scheduled for Wednesday in the case against Parker and five other men charged as “gunmen” in the 2014 armed standoff.

Parker, a 33-year-old father of two, is the only defendant who decided to put himself in the line of courtroom crossfire by testifying on his own behalf. He controlled the narrative for hours on Friday while his defense lawyer questioned him. But on Monday, a federal prosecutor pressed him about his decisions the day of the standoff, as well as his social media postings in the lead-up to and aftermath of his trip to Bunkerville.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas Dickinson’s line of questioning reflected an attempt to suggest to jurors that Parker was not truthful in testifying that he never planned to use violence and only raised his gun to defend women and children against a threatening law enforcement presence.

On April 12, 2014, Parker was photographed in the prone position, pointing a long gun through a crack in the jersey barrier of a highway bridge that overlooked a dried-up wash where protesters were face-to-face with Bureau of Land Management agents. Protesters assembled on the bridge and in the wash that day at rancher Bundy’s behest.

Dickinson played a video of Parker and others milling around on the highway overpass as protesters gathered. He referenced the emotion Parker displayed during his testimony last week.

“It appeared you were getting emotional and were crying about your time on the bridge. … You’re not crying in this video,” Dickinson said.

“I was angry,” Parker contended.

The standoff ended when federal authorities, who were outnumbered, released the cattle and left Bunkerville. Dickinson asked Parker about an exchange that occurred after authorities left, when protesters returned to the so-called militia camp they set up near Bundy’s ranch.

“Were you sitting next to someone who asked Siri, ‘What’s the last time the federal government backed down?’”

“Yes sir,” Parker replied.

“And what came up on Siri?”

“A picture of me.”

The photo of Parker on the bridge went viral after the standoff, and online followers dubbed him the “Bundy Sniper.”

Dickinson referenced Parker’s social media postings after the shooting to suggest to jurors that he was proud of that title.

The standoff occurred after the Clark County sheriff announced at a morning rally that federal authorities decided to cease their cattle impoundment operation.

Protesters say they went to the wash to watch cows get released, not to threaten and intimidate federal agents. Parker maintained that was his intention, but he acknowledged the crowd of hundreds of protesters may have misunderstood the sheriff’s announcement.

But, he said with an air of defiance: “What the sheriff didn’t say is, I’d like you to not go over there because there’s a lot of people wearing combat gear sitting in foxholes waiting to shoot you.”

Regulations governing incidental take permits for threatened and endangered species, respectively, are found in the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.22 and 50 CFR 17.32. In December 2013, the applicant closed a segment of a San Diego County regional recreational trail system due to the discovery of the San Diego fairy shrimp (Branchinecta sandiegonensis) within ponded areas that had formed within the existing trail alignment. The applicant is seeking a 5-year permit for the take of San Diego fairy shrimp in the interim period of time while the applicant works to find a long-term solution to maintaining a trail connection. The applicant proposes to re-open the existing hiking, biking, and equestrian trail segment where there are currently four seasonally ponded pools covering a total of 291 square feet that are considered occupied by San Diego fairy shrimp. Re-opening the trail to recreational uses may impact San Diego fairy shrimp occurring in these pools. The applicant proposes to install temporary bridges and fencing to minimize impacts to the occupied pools and re-open the trail segment. The trail segment provides an important connection within a popular regional trail system, and continued closure of the trail will likely result in creation of unsanctioned alternate trails with unpredictable impacts to natural resources. We anticipate minor impacts to San Diego fairy shrimp within up to 145 square feet of the pools due to the effects of shading from the bridges and possible loss of individual San Diego fairy shrimp cysts due to trail maintenance. Although the project site is surrounded by occupied habitat for several federally threatened and endangered species, there are no other listed species specifically within the project alignment. Critical habitat for Otay tarplant (Deinandra conjugens) and spreading navarretia (Navarretia fossalis) occurs on the project site. Proposed Action and Alternatives The Sweetwater Authority proposes to mitigate impacts to the San Diego fairy shrimp through efforts that have resulted in the restoration of 290 square feet of vernal pool habitat occupied by San Diego fairy shrimp and are permanently protected and managed. The Proposed Action consists of the issuance of an incidental take permit and implementation of the proposed HCP, which includes measures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate impacts to the VerDate Mar&amp;lt;15&amp;gt;2010 18:45 Mar 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 San Diego fairy shrimp. Four alternatives to the taking of the listed species under the Proposed Action are considered in the proposed HCP. Under the Permanent Trail Closure (No Action) Alternative, no authorized incidental take of San Diego fairy shrimp would occur; however, it is likely that unsanctioned alternate trail use would occur that would result in more impacts than under the Proposed Action, and recreational opportunities would be substantially reduced. Under the Minor Trail Deviation Alternative, immediate impacts to San Diego fairy shrimp would be avoided by moving the trail away from existing pools, but trail use would likely result in new depressions that could eventually be colonized by San Diego fairy shrimp and subsequently be impacted. Under the Different Location Alternative, the trail would be routed elsewhere to prevent additional impacts; however, planning and permitting this alternative will take up to 5 years, during which time recreational opportunities would be substantially reduced and alternative unsanctioned trail use would likely occur. Under the Reconstruction of the Existing Trail Segment Alternative, existing pools within the trail segment would be recontoured and/or filled to prevent San Diego fairy shrimp from developing within the pools, thereby reducing ongoing incidental take. However, this alternative would result in greater impacts to the species and require additional regulatory permitting. Our Preliminary Determination The Service has made a preliminary determination that approval of the proposed HCP qualifies as a categorical exclusion under NEPA, as provided by the Department of the Interior Manual (516 DM 2 Appendix 1 and 516 DM 6 Appendix 1) and as a ‘‘low-effect’’ plan as defined by the Habitat Conservation Planning Handbook (November 1996). We base our determination that a HCP qualifies as a low-effect plan on the following three criteria: (1) Implementation of the HCP would result in minor or negligible effects on federally listed, proposed, and candidate species and their habitats; (2) Implementation of the HCP would result in minor or negligible effects on other environmental values or resources; and (3) Impacts of the HCP, considered together with the impacts of other past, present, and reasonably foreseeable similarly situated projects, would not result, over time, in cumulative effects to environmental values or resources that would be considered significant. PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14733 Based upon this preliminary determination, we do not intend to prepare further NEPA documentation. We will consider public comments in making the final determination on whether to prepare such additional documentation. Public Availability of Comments Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

Shawna Cox: What America needs to know about the Bunkerville trial

Editorial by Shawna Cox appearing in The Free Range Report March 29, 2017

We just want to tell the truth, so why can’t the media go into court and show the world what really goes on in these Federal Courts?  Why are they only allowed to take notes and draw pictures?  The defendants want an open court and have asked for it but the Judge still refuses media access.  The information that goes out by way of the major media is only a spin because their reporters don’t even stay in the courtroom the whole day. They report things of very little concern and try to keep the public in the dark.

Commentary by Shawna Cox

Dear America,

Federal Court in Las Vegas, Nevada: March 22, 2014 during the “Cliven Bundy Trail #1,” the federal prosecutors were still putting on their case. This would be the 22nd day of trial since it began on Feb. 6, 2017.  In cross examination of one of the federal agents, the only Pro Se Defendant, Todd Engel, asked the agent if it was true that the Special Agent in charge, Daniel P. Love of the BLM, was under investigation for misconduct. (Remember “Burning Man”?) The witness did not answer the question before the prosecution immediately jumped to their feet and objected.  After all, the defendants were not allowed to talk about the main character in the whole Bundy Standoff.  The prosecution has raised his name a number of times but only in the light that is most favorable for them. Judge Navarro immediately sent the jury out of the room.  It was time for a break anyway. The prosecutors demanded that Mr. Engel be stripped of his Pro Se status.  After a few  moments of thought, the Judge agreed to strip Todd of his Pro Se but just for the rest of the day. ( I believe she was trying to figure out a way to do it.)  The 6thAmendment provides “to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.”  Of which, Todd’s counsel was fired because of falling asleep in hearings, no communication with defendant, no knowledge of the case, refusing to ask the questions put before him of the defendant, only performing when others are looking over his shoulder or trying to assist his client, etc. This would now leave Mr. Engel with no defense!

Judge Navarro did make the ruling to strip Todd’s Pro Se status the very next day.

The same afternoon during cross examination of FBI Agent Caputo, the sage attorney, T. Jackson who represents Greg Burleson, asked the agent if he had worked with Greg Burleson before.  “Yes.”  When?  “2012 – 2013.”  So… you could say Greg Burleson was working as a paid informant in 2012-2013?  “Um…Yes, we were working on a murder case.”  What happened to him in 2103?  “I handed him off.”

The audience were in shock with jaws dropping.  A few other questions followed, and then the last questions of the day…Who did you hand him off to?  “Agent Nixon.”  The same Agent Nixon that just testified in this trial the yesterday?  “Ah…(looking to the Prosecutors for help)…Ah, Yes.”

So now it is obvious to all of us that Greg Burleson was and has been a paid informant for the FBI for a few years, and now he has been in jail sitting in with the defendants during their client/attorney meetings etc.  The defendants are sure this is the basis for a “mistrial” and this information just confirmed what they felt all along: Greg Burleson had a different reason to come to the ranch than all the rest of them.

The next day the Judge acted like nothing happened the day before and waved it off like nothing to see here…move along.  The prosecution even went so far as to play all of the Longbow (FBI fake film company0 interview with Burleson–terrible and overly dramatized!  They even showed all of his Facebook posts afterwards, which are boisterous, obnoxious, filled with bad language, and not the spirit that everyone else was feeling there. These fake narratives were used to ramp up the hysteria about the militia and the protests and to sway public opinion.

We just want to tell the truth, so why can’t the media go into court and show the world what really goes on in these Federal Courts?  Why are they only allowed to take notes and draw pictures?  The defendants want an open court and have asked for it but the Judge still refuses media access.  The information that goes out by way of the major media is only a spin because their reporters don’t even stay in the courtroom the whole day. They report things of very little concern and try to keep the public in the dark.

This is criminal!

All the while they keep the Bundy men and all the real patriots, locked up with no bail and no relief.  They are treated worse than if they were already found guilty of some horrible crime.  These judges, along with many other politically motivated people, have created a conspiracy against We the People.

Harry Reid’s Role

Senator Harry Reid, in April 2014, called all the people at the Bundy Ranch Standoff “Domestic Terrorists” because we exposed his and his son, Rory Reid’s, land deal with China.  They had a contract with a company from China to sell the Nevada land Cliven Bundy has been grazing on for over 150 years, for pennies on the dollar. Makes you wonder how politicians go into office to serve and come out filthy rich.

Judge Navarro has a conflict of interest and should have recused herself from this trial.

In 2009 she was working as an attorney for the Clark County Commission with Rory Reid as one of those commissioners.  Her husband, Brian Rutledge, was also working in the county and is still working as the District Attorney.

In 2009, Judge Navarro, was recommended by Rory Reid a Clark County Commissioner, whom she worked with, to be nominated by (his father) Harry Reid to President Obama to become the Chief Judge in the US District Court of Nevada here in Las Vegas.  Harry contacted Governor Brian Sandoval to replace Judge Robert C Jones and Gloria Navarro was appointed on January 1, 2014.  Judge Robert C Jones was demoted at that time probably because he was the Judge who sat on the Wayne Hage case and saw the injustice and out of control BLM and the Hage Case won in court.  Her appointment bypassed all the experienced Judges who worked their way to the top and placed a young woman with very little experience, to be their master.

April 19, 2015 Chief US District Judge Gloria Navarro assigned the Hage case to herself and in September 2015 the Wayne Hage case was overturned.  She is BIASED and should have recused herself from this Bundy Case.  Harry Reid has been placing these people in office to further his own agenda.

She also should have recused herself from this Bundy Case because it is a conflict of interest with her husband, Brian Rutledge as the District Attorney who failed to prosecute anyone after the standoff and dozens of people filed complaints with the County Sheriff’s Office against all the Federal Agents who pointed guns and threatened to kill all the unarmed Americans protesting under the Toquap Bridge that day of April 12, 2014.

Federal law requires the automatic disqualification of a federal judge under certain circumstances.

In 1994, the U.S. Supreme Court held that “Disqualification is required if an objective observer would entertain reasonable questions about the judge’s impartiality.  If a judge’s attitude or state of mind leads a detached observer to conclude that a fair and impartial hearing is unlikely, the judge must be disqualified.”

Just like Harry did with Neil Kornze, the former head of the Bureau of Land Management in the Obama Administration. Neil had been tutored as Harry’s personal secretary. Two days before the assault at the Bundy Ranch in 2014, Harry Reid made Neil the head of the BLM. There were a lot of disgruntled people who had been working their way to the top for years with lots of good experience and were bypassed by this young man through the influence again of Harry Reid.  Harry needed someone to do his dirty work.

 Shawna Cox is a native born Utahan.  She is a very active wife, mother and grandmother.  She has been politically involved for over 40 years.  She stood up for her Cowgirl friend Mary Bullock Rucker when the BLM and environmental groups came after her and her cattle in 1996.  She went to Bunkerville to help her friend Cliven Bundy and his family when they came for his cattle and offered the prayer under the bridge. Then believing in Ammon Bundy’s will to serve the Lord, she went to Harney County, Oregon to help the Dwight Hammond Family when they came for his Ranch.  She was in the truck when LaVoy Finicum was murdered and was a defendant in the First Oregon Trial, where miraculously they were all aquitted.  She has been helping all the other defendants ever since and can’t go home until they too are all freemen again. They are innocent of any wrong doing. May God Bless us all to restore our Constitution!

I’m going to be asking for favor 60 billion today. Ryan has a detention hearing tomorrow at 9:30 am in the Vegas federal courthouse. I have major anxiety over it. As a mom, it’s so difficult to know how to handle these situations. My kids want to be there so that they can see their dad and sit in the same room as him. But, these hearings always take their toll on their little spirits, and it’s way hard on them. In Nevada, the men sit in jail over a well written, embellished novel of lies. That’s it. I was there, my kids were there, and it’s difficult not to yell out in protest. Unfortunately, to refute one of their many lies, which has a lengthy charge to it, I have to put my 13 yr old child on the stand. She was a witness and was there, and I was not. She is very nervous, and prayers for her, and all involved will be appreciated. As a family, we will also be fasting, and ask us to join us if you can. I’m concerned that if they don’t let Dad come home, she might blame herself in some way. Thank you for your love and support of our family!

I have all kinds of people messaging me about hats! Andrea Parker….who is Eric Parker’s wife has her “resist” hats for sale on her paypal….she will also have a bunch at trial, which starts in Vegas next week. The LaVoy hat is on onecowboysstandforfreedom.com, and we should have the VO hats up on rancherbundy.blogspot.com this week. On the back of the VO hats ( which is the Bundy ranch brand) it says “stand by the brand”. I hope this clears up all of the questions about the hats….thanks my friends!

“Once you stand, you can expect the Hand of Providence to be over you”….LaVoy Finicum….
I’m sorry I take so long to update. Just my take on yesterday’s hearing. The Prosecutor in our case in Nevada, is a very distinguished older looking gentlemen who wears very nice suits….he’s not bald, but he kinda has a Daddy Warbucks feel about him. Im not going to lie, he’s way intimidating. More intimidating than any of the prosecutors in Oregon. Yesterday, my husband stood alone against him for eight hours straight. He was grilled, coerced, and interrogated, for long periods of time. Ryan not only held his own, he brought the spirit of truth with him fearlessly. I don’t see any less than a miracle in this. Prayers and fasting works my friends, and I appreciate all of the prayers and fasting and support. God is still with us. I saw it yesterday. Keep praying because God wants us to preserve freedom in our country.

PETE SANTILLI

Childhood

The Son of Italian Immigrants, Pete Santilli was born Pietro Tomas on April 29th,1965. He would be the first child born to Guytano and Giovanna (Pascazio) Marinello, and the first in his family to be born in America.

His Grandparents, Giacento and Antonietta Pascazio, longed to escape Fascism, and in 1964 moved their entire family from Southern Italy – to America, and they did it the right way.

In those days you were not automatically guaranteed welfare when you came to America. Before he could bring his family to live here, Giacento had to secure a sponsor who promised he would have a job when he got here. You had to know the United States constitution, basic laws, and show you could be a responsible citizen once you arrived. The entire family legally became United States Citizens.

The Pascazio’s were a traditional Italian – Roman Catholic – family, that settled in Latham New York where the young Pietro was raised. In the 60’s and 70’s Latham was a diverse community made up of working class Italians, Jews, and Polish immigrants.

Pietro’s Grandfather was an Italian Master Carpenter who went to work making hand made cabinets for the Rodino family in Upstate New York immediately after his family arrived on our shores. He learned to speak English before he came to live in America. He also insisted his family learn the language and speak only English at the dinner table! His Grandmother stayed at home and raised her children and helped tend to little Pietro while his mother worked outside the home.

After divorcing his father, Pietro’s mother remarried – and in 1970 he was adopted by his stepfather Vincenzo Santilli; Pietro’s name was changed to Peter Thomas Santilli.

Peter’s mother was a very talented seamstress who became a successful fashion designer for a company called Ursula of Switzerland. She made clothing for Miss America Pageants and one of her most notable clients was Vanessa Williams.

Peter had what he says is a normal childhood in the suburbs of Latham. He grew up on a tree lined street, with great neighbors, and had a wonderful hardworking Italian family. He calls his Grandfather his hero and says it was he who taught him the importance of Liberty and to be grateful to be living in America.

Marine Corps

After watching the United States beat Russia in the 1980 Winter Olympics Games, it is then Peter says he became very Patriotic. It truly was a The Miracle On Ice.

“The “Miracle on Ice” refers to a medal-round game during the men’s ice hockey tournament at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, played between the hosting United States, and the defending gold medalists, the Soviet Union.”

It was my first feeling of real pride in my Country, said Peter. As silly as it sounds It was that event that made me feel like I wanted to be a part of what makes this Country great .. it was then I decided to join the Marines.

Peter served in the Marine Corps from 1983 to 1987. He was honorably discharged and decided to settle down in Orange County California after being stationed at El Toro Marine Base.

Upon his release from the Corps, Pete was determined to “make it” in Corporate America. A week after his release Pete bought a 100$ suit from JC Penny – an expensive pair of Johnston and Murphy Wingtip shoes, and the book – Art of The Deal – By Donald J. Trump.

He married, had children, raised his family, and became a successful sales rep for Coca Cola and Bell South.

Radio & Activism

One of Pete’s childhood heroes was Art Bell, a famous radio broadcaster and a syndicated radio talk-show host – who commanded late night airwaves with his voice and brilliant narrative concerning all things about the “unknown”

From the time he was old enough to remember Peter would go to bed – turn on his radio – and listen to Art Bell – to this day he has a great amount of respect for Art Bell.

Pete always had a love for radio and dreamed of being the next Art Bell and in 2011 after being told his whole life he had a voice for radio, he decided to give it a try. He started a podcast that quickly grew from him being the only listener – to about 500 loyal fans in the first few months. Pete settled into the genre of truthful, critical analysis of the United States Government, and it was then he began his career in advocacy journalism. Before he knew it he had 1,000’s of listeners and his audience was growing. Today Millions of people have heard the voice of Pete Santilli.

Since 2011 The Pete Santilli Show has become a champion in the activist community by covering those important issues that shape our American Lives. From Bundy Ranch to Baltimore – to his arrest in Burns, Oregon while covering the Occupation of the Malhuer Wild-life Refuge – Pete Santilli stayed true to his belief that good – bad – or indifferent – everyone deserves to be heard and have their story told.

His Arrest

Pete Santilli was arrested on January 26th, 2016 in Burns, Oregon and charged with conspiracy, following his coverage and advocacy for protestors who attempted an adverse possession of the Malhuer Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon. After spending 8 months in a Multnomah County Oregon jail, the case against him would eventually be dismissed and never go to trial.

He is now being held in Parhump, Nevada and expected to go on trial in April or May of this year after being indicted on a charge of conspiracy, violent assault on a federal officer with a weapon (even though he never carried or even touched one) and extortion during what the mainstream media dubbed – The Bundy Ranch Standoff.

The Government contends that because Pete Santilli filmed a viral video that was picked up and aired by Fox News, and because he spoke out critically and reported on the way the BLM was treating the Bundy family and protestors – Because he reported honestly about the military style impoundment of Cliven Bundy’s cattle – The beating and unlawful arrest of his Son Dave – The show of force against Cliven’s Son Ammon – and the chilling use of a stun gun on his body 3 times – Because Pete Santilli showed the world the brutal assault on Cliven Bundy’s sister Margaret as she stood in protest of a convoy that the same shocked world would soon learn was part of and used during the killing of cattle and destruction of Bundy family water infrastructure, [ All of which the United States Government had no legal claim to, and the BLM had no court order to destroy], Pete Santilli would be arrested, refused a speedy trial – held without bail – accused of brandishing a firearm he never possessed – and effectively held as a political prisoner of the Obama Administration for over a year and counting.

Pete Santilli reported to the world that the BLM had illegally forced the family and protestors into free-speech areas – and used snipers to keep them in-line by threat of lethal force or arrest if they protested outside that area. Bunkerville, Nevada was under Martial Law by an agency who literally had no arresting powers but somehow “did” have the unlawful authority to kill.

Pete Santilli now sits in jail facing horrendous charges, and if convicted, he could spend 101 years behind bars; A Life sentence for telling the truth.

This is the fruit of Obama’s War On Journalists.

By the time the day was over there were 10. They had to call reinforcements to try and knock Ryan down. Ryan has God! There aren’t enough prosecuting attorneys in the world to defeat them.

A small group of protesters gather Friday, Dec. 9, 2016, outside the U.S. District Court building in Las Vegas where Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and 16 other defendants had a hearing before a federal magistrate judge scheduling their trials on charges they conspired to take up weapons against federal agents in an armed standoff in April 2014.

— Two sons of Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy refused to attend, and several co-defendants shouted an oath of defiance at the end of a Friday court appearance for 17 men accused of conspiring and taking up arms against federal agents near the Bundy ranch in Nevada in April 2014.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Peggy Leen decided not to order marshals to bring Ammon and Ryan Bundy to court by force, so the two Bundy sons remained in a nearby holding cell. Marshals were instructed to provide a speaker so they could hear audio of the court proceedings.

Another defendant, Peter Santilli, blurted out that the Bundy brothers didn’t want to be shackled. Leen admonished Santilli that he didn’t get to speak on their behalf.

So began a contentious three-hour hearing during which the judge didn’t make immediate rulings on a range of arguments, including the government’s request to have three trials and defendants’ requests to be tried together or in groups of their choosing.

Trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 6. Leen called it “physically and logistically impossible” to try all 17 defendants together, and suggested it would be unfair for a 17th defendant to have to wait months or years to resolve his case if they were tried individually. She said she’ll issue a written scheduling order soon.

Leen also is considering multiple requests to dismiss charges; a plea for a change of venue to Reno or another city; a suggestion that federal officials shredded documents that would be relevant to the case as they packed up and left temporary offices near Bunkerville; and Cliven Bundy’s lawyer’s insistence that the federal government has no jurisdiction in Clark County.

Santilli’s attorney argued that he’s a journalist, and that his calls in Internet postings for supporters to rally to the Bundy ranch to lawfully carry guns and protest federal Bureau of Land Management action were constitutionally protected free speech.

At least two defendants, Ryan Payne and Scott Engel, stood the moment court was adjourned and loudly declared, “Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!”

Santilli chimed in that he expected that when Donald Trump becomes president, he’ll intervene in the case on the defendants’ behalf.

Several people among about three dozen family members and friends responded with words of love and support as they filed out of the courtroom gallery under watchful eyes of U.S. marshals.

The protest-by-absence of Ammon and Ryan Bundy echoed the refusal by their father last March to enter a plea to federal charges that he led the tense armed standoff that stopped a government round-up of cattle on public land about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. A magistrate judge entered a not-guilty plea for him.

No shots were fired, and no one was injured in the standoff. But images of Bundy backers with assault rifles on a freeway overpass forcing federal agents to back off in a dry river bed below have become iconic in an ongoing battle about states’ rights and federal authority.

That dispute has roots a nearly half-century fight over grazing rights in Nevada and the West, where the federal government controls vast expanses of land. Calls for action have grown louder and more frequent in the Internet age, with bloggers protesting federal agency decisions to designate protected areas for endangered species and set aside tracts for mining, wind farms and natural gas exploration.

The Bundy case defendants face conspiracy, obstruction, weapon, threat and assault on a federal officer charges that could get them decades in prison if they’re convicted. They and two others who have pleaded guilty in the case remain in federal custody in southern Nevada.

Federal prosecutors want three trials, with the first to start Feb. 6 for accused conspiracy leaders Cliven, Ammon and Ryan Bundy, Payne and Santilli.

A second trial would start in May for six alleged “mid-level” standoff leaders and organizers: Bundy sons Dave and Mel Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Micah McGuire, Joseph O’Shaughnessy and Jason Woods.

A third trial would begin in August for six accused “followers and gunmen.” They are Gregory Burleson, O. Scott Drexler, Todd Engel, Ricky Lovelien, Eric Parker and Steven Stewart.

Woods’ lawyer, Kristine Kuzemka, protested Friday that labeling defendants as “gunmen” is unfair because it suggests guilt or culpability.

Leen said a description used for now, during pretrial proceedings, might never be suggested to a jury.

Burleson’s attorney, Terrence Jackson, asked again for the judge to consider releasing his client before trial for medical reasons.

Jackson said Burleson, 53, of Arizona, is blind, diabetic and uses a wheelchair.

Burleson told Leen he isn’t getting medical treatment in federal custody.

“I don’t want to end up dying in here,” he said.

Cindy Wisner Deb Head Omg, this judge was recommended by Harry Reid…no conflict of interest there since he wanted the land that the Bundy’s had because he needed a right of way to his land. CORRUPT POS. Then you have the treasonous potus who appointed her. So this judge isnt impartial, and our P3 Patriots are having their constitutional rights trampled on. This is sickening.

Prosecutors confirm BLM shredded documents before Bunkerville standoff
By JEFF GERMAN
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

Bureau of Land Management agents shredded sensitive documents about their roundup of Bundy family cattle in the tense hours before their April 2014 standoff with armed Bundy followers, federal prosecutors have confirmed.

In court papers late Wednesday, prosecutors said the hurried shredding occurred as agents at the impoundment site feared they were in imminent danger and about to be overrun by a crowd of angry Bundy supporters.

The shredding began the evening of April 11, 2014, and continued until BLM agents were forced to abandon the impoundment camp the next morning, BLM Agent Kent Kleman wrote in an accompanying four-page affidavit.

Among the items shredded were copies of the impoundment operations plan, maps and papers containing cellphone numbers and personal information about government employees and contractors involved in the roundup, Kleman said.

The destruction of the documents was necessary to “prevent disclosure of law enforcement sensitive information to persons engaged in criminal activity,” prosecutors wrote in their court papers.

Some 400 cattle were being held at the site, which was several miles from the Bundy ranch near Bunkerville. They were rounded up under federal court orders because the Bundy family had failed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in grazing fees to the BLM.

Hundreds of militia members and Bundy followers from across the country had gathered to oppose the roundup, outnumbering the federal agents involved in the operation.

Less than two years later, rancher Cliven Bundy, four of his sons and 14 others were indicted by a federal grand jury in Las Vegas on an array of charges, including conspiring to assault the federal agents on April 12, 2014. Two of the defendants pleaded guilty, and the rest are to stand trial on Feb. 6.

Prosecutors revealed the frantic shredding effort leading up to the standoff in papers responding to a defense motion by Dan Hill, who represents one of the leaders of the alleged assault, Cliven Bundy’s son Ammon.

Hill said in his motion that his defense investigator, Keith Gordon, had obtained bags of shredded evidence left behind by the BLM, and Hill sought to dismiss the charges against his client on grounds it amounted to the destruction of evidence in the criminal case.

But prosecutors responded that the dismissal is unwarranted and that Hill failed to establish that he has been unable to obtain copies of the shredded documents from other sources.

They also argued in their court papers that the shredding occurred because the BLM agents did not want the information to fall into the hands of people who had threatened them. It was not done to withhold evidence in a criminal case put together nearly two years later, they said.

In his affidavit, Kleman added that the shredding was “not conducted in bad faith or to hide exculpatory information that would have been useful to the defense.”
Kleman said agents had a duty as law enforcement officers to keep the internal documents from the Bundy forces as tensions mounted during the confrontation.

“Such information was contained in the confidential operational plan from the impound, which is a master planning document of the operation that included not only details of how the government planned to carry out the cattle impound but also included detailed personal information of the government employees and contractors who planned and participated in the operation,” Kleman said.

Hill offered a different opinion in an interview Thursday.

“The government’s nonchalance about the destruction of evidence is just the latest travesty in this case,” he said. “In this country, you have a right to see the documents made by the people trying to put you in prison. The government shouldn’t get a pass for shredding papers and notes that just might have shown that Ammon didn’t do anything wrong.

The shredding effort comes on the heels of another unusual government disclosure in the high-profile case.

Prosecutors confirmed last week in court documents that undercover FBI agents posed as a documentary film crew to gather evidence during their investigation into the Bunkerville standoff.

Defense lawyers who have seen FBI reports of the undercover operation have said in court documents that the company’s name was Longbow Productions.

Several of the defendants charged in the case, including Ammon Bundy, were tricked into doing interviews with the undercover agents before they were charged, defense lawyers have alleged.

Prosecutors contend the ruse was a proper investigative technique.

Lazaro Ecenarro America,

Every groups, is fighting to exposing this “DE-FACT” government, which they have one COMMON denominator ? ALL of these CRIMINALS are MEMBERS of American “BAR” Association. Which should explain, WHY their is NO accountability, as their cover-up each other’s crimes within their DE-FACTO courts agencies (Like The Judicial Misconduct and the American BAR Association). Do you honestly believe they are going to investigate and Prosecute each other ? 🤔🤔🤔

I truly wonder, will America ever wake-up and realize, on how “BAR” Association is fringing upon our constitutional rights to “due process” ? But most of all, they have ENSLAVED us through “Divide and Conquer” by Race, Religion, Gender and Class Warfare. Between several De-Facto agencies like CPS, EPA, DOFW, NSother method, on how to they keep we the people distracted as we depopulate each other.A, USDA, FBI, IRS, DOJ, US FORESTRY, BLM, TSA, Federal Reserve and MEDIA. These agencies are an 😡😡

I ask you this, What is the purpose of our Military sacrificing their “life and limb”, when these criminals from the “BAR” our infringing every aspect of our Bill of Rights and our constitution ? Good for thought. 😡😡😡

NOTE: through the Clinton’s, George Soros has a LOT of money invested within this “DE-FACTO” Courts

In loving memory of our fallen Service (Man and woman), LaVoy and our children. God Bless our Republic. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

I just got off the phone with Pete Santilli! He was excited and elated at the information he’s seen in discovery. He told me some of the most horrifying things….but with great optimism. He told me that I, Lisa Bundy, in 2014 while waiting underneath the bridge next to my husband, to get my father in laws cows back….I, alone, has 60-70 rifles on me. Ready to kill!!! Unbelievable! These people are MONSTERS! They’ve got nothing on my husband, father in law, Cliven and brother in laws….along with everyone else. They were the aggressors in this. How much money was wasted for nothing?! Our tax dollars at work. You should be irritate!!!

Sorry this is rambling. I had to get this out ASAP!

Blaine Cooper has proffered a deal with federal prosecutors in which he would testify against the five members of the Bundy family, along with 13 others including independent journalist Peter T. Santilli. All of the men have been charged with at 16 federal felonies, and if found guilty could spend 50 years to life in prison.

Cooper called Patriot activist Jaime Spears from a federal detention facility in Nevada to tell her he had decided to make the deal so that he could, “go home to see my children.” It is unknown at this time if prosecutors will accept the proffer, or what concessions they may be prepared to make in exchange for Cooper’s testimony.

The trial is scheduled to begin on February 6th, more than a year since the group was arrested for their activities at the Bundy Ranch Standoff in 2014 and the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in January of 2016 which ended in the death of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum at an ambush set by the FBI and Oregon State Police.

At least 2 members of the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team are under investigation by the DOJ’s Office of the Inspector General and the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility for shooting at Finicum from elevated sniper positions, and then lying about having taken the shots to Oregon investigators.

Well-sourced information from inside the Department of Justice indicates that indictments of the HRT snipers are expected to be filed, but the exact charges have yet to be determined.

Rio oflife

Mens rea (/ˈmɛnz ˈriːə/; Latin for “guilty mind”) is the mental element of a crime. It is a necessary element of many crimes. The standard common law test of criminal liability is expressed in the Latin phrase actus reus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea, i.e. “the act is not culpable unless the mind is guilty”.

Mark H

Psychopaths like Hillary Clinton Bill Clinton Barrack Obama and many high Level Criminals Bernie Maddoff have no conscious and feel no guilt or shame .. 70% of all FBI arrests are do to entrapment .. they have to manufacture th crimes to justify their job..

Mark H

The Maulheure case is in Jury Deliberation now. So they say Blaine Cooper has serious Mental Problems.. Just over 6 months ago he asked his wife for a Divorce because he was in Love with another Married Woman .. The FBI has 15 or 16 Paid informants that did not have “SHIT” on them only two were even called to the witness stand or was it three? I never heard of McConnell being on the stand just that Swiss guy who did target practice training trying to tie guns to the peaceful protest.. The other witness Terri Linell was a positive witness for the Defence and says the FBI Murdered LaVoy Finicum on purpose.. If 16 paid informants can’t make a case what can Blaine Copper do for the Prosecution ?

surfjerr

UNITED STATES vs CLIVEN BUNDY ET AL – NEVADA UPDATE:

Yesterday was a good day for our men being held in The Southern Nevada Detention Center.

Attorneys and clients met for the first time as a group, and were able to lay out their case for those attorneys who attended.

Larry Klayman was present to represent the interest of Cliven Bundy

It was an organized effort by the defendants who worked hard on their presentation which pointed out the many flaws in the Governments case against them.

The attorneys overwhelmingly agreed the meeting was a success.

Chris Rassmussen, Attorney for Pete Santilli, said;

The meeting was professional and well thought out. The powerpoint message was very good and showed clearly the many Civil Rights Violations perpetrated by the BLM, that led up to the intense confrontation on April 12th, 2014.

1. Cliven Bundy and his family remained peaceful and compliant even after the beating and wrongful detainment of his son Dave Bundy.

2. The Family began protesting at the roads edge ( with signs and voices) and were forced into an illegal 1st amendment area by the BLM.

a.) The family complies

Aderholt et al. v. Bureau of Land Management et al.

The federal government is trying to take thousands of acres of Texas land from homeowners and ranchers along the Red River. According to the Bureau of Land Management, the land is inside the river and is therefore public land. But there is a major problem with the BLM’s view: the south bank of the river is about a mile north of where the government says it is. Furthermore, many Texans live on that land, and many others make their livelihoods from farming and ranching (not fishing) on it. These Texans have lived and paid taxes on the land for generations, and they have titles and deeds going back to the 1800’s.

3. Snipers kept watch over protesters and family members who legally at the road and or other places surrounding Public Lands including private property belonging to the Bundy family.

4. Dave Bundy was beaten and unlawfully detained for taking photographs of BLM herding his Father’s cattle over a distant hill.
His property (iPad) was illegally confiscated and never returned.

5. Family members and press were illegally assaulted with threats of force, stun guns, and eventually use of force, during a protest demanding the BLM answer questions as to why they were killing cattle and conducting a round-up during calving season.
