A great day in America.
January 8, 2018, marked a day when Elvis Presley would have been 93 years old and to Trump that great event (no pun intended), we Had a landmark decision come down from Nevada that made our Country a greater and returned some of the Liberty that has been stolen from us over the past 12 years. We have been shown that no matter how corrupt our Bureaucrats act, or how Tyrannical the Judges and Prosecutors are, we are still America under God and can win against all odds. If Hitlery would have been President, I believe the cover ups and conspiracies would have been put on steroids and we would be sucking from the cup of sorrow.
The Bundy’s, that stood against the BLM in NV around four years ago, were illegally held captive for 2 long years without bail, have finally been released. cont.···› RedoubtNewsTyrannyOpressionAmerica #RedoubtYourNews & #ReadTheRest at @ReDoubtN
“The Accused” in the Bundy Ranch trial was held for nearly two years. Denied them was any Presumption of innocence. You know, the whole “Innocent until proven Guilty” thing you hear about in a TV movie, it was long out the door. Out of the window was the now nearly extinct “Fair and Speedy Trial” we all grew up hearing about. Now that’s not the only thing to escape the confines of the Court’s ‘Just-us’ System. Seemingly, its very Nature excludes folks like you and me. Those in the know knew “No Bail” for the Bundys, et al. could ever be afforded the condemned. So, yes, that window remained closed as well with all Hope of Liberty in that avenue was closed too, it seemed.What was had were Closed to the Public Court Hearings, Sealed Documents, Sanctions, and a Fully Un-Informed Jury, having constantly been removed from their Duty in the Court. It came as great a surprise for a great many when the then familiar settings of the Closed Courtroom opened.The fissure’s opening enlarged as more damning evidence trickled into a stream. The threat of a catastrophic collapse became all too clear. Uncontainable, disaster loomed in the face of the so-called Blind-Lady.Seeing the coming gloom in the weather, I suspect she thought it best to wash her hands of the whole matter while pulling the plug of her finger the dike and heading for higher-ground to save herself.Some saw the waters spilling forth not as a destructive force, but as Life. A cleansing was at hand. Awash was the filth of corruption, a cleansing flood of Redemption.
In Surprise Ruling, Ammon Bundy Released on House Arrest
“This is a great day for the Bundy family,” said supporter Vincent Easley II, as he live-streamed Bundy’s reunion with his wife and children. “And I think it won’t be long before everybody’s out of there.”

“This is the beginning of taking America back.” Shawna Cox 2014 Federal Land and State Land: Equal Footing – Public Land vs Public Domain From Shawna Cox “Last Rancher Standing” The Inside Story of the Cliven Bundy Ranch Saga Beleaguered cattle rancher Cliven Bundy miraculously won the hearts of millions of Americans when hundreds of freedom-loving people flocked to Bunkerville, Nevada to stand by his side as he bravely nullified unconstitutional federal overreach. Against all odds, Bundy and his little band of freedom fighters stood against the marshaled ranks of a heavily armed Federal Agency who learned in a hurry that heavy-handed tactics against? We the People? would not work in their town. As a fearless eyewitness, author Shawna Cox (Bundy?s personal secretary) takes the reader behind the harrowing scenes to tell the real story which was not about cows but something much bigger.

If these people are labeled “domestic terrorists” then I’d say that thankfully there are a lot of American’s that would fit H.Reed’s label. (perhaps more than he knows) Fortunately, this is still America, not Amerika, so as it stands for now, these folks can boldly be viewed as “Proud American’s…” pushing back. – RN Sanders
‘It has been widely reported on the tactics used by the government to coerce DeLemus into the plea agreement. Citing threats to his family and children, DeLemus agreed to serve 72 months for his participation in the protest.’
I’m Proud to have met Jerry in Bunkerville in 2014. I know him to be Honorable and Forthright. He is a man of wisdom and reserve. I was very assured for the safety of lives while Jerry DeLemus Stood Watch, both sides of the line. Included in this ‘buffer zone of safety’ (Stand in the Gap so to say) were those us from the Media, minor or mainstream as it is, to Witness and make a Record to Report back thru our Media outlets.
I was amongst thousands that came to say, “NO” Not Today. The Government will give account for their actions, they are not master, but Servant to We the People.
Thank you again for your Service and Sacrifice Sir. Very Sincerely, Vincent Easley II
Jason is an American that believed in the principles of the Constitution. Now a (released) political prisoner at risk of becoming lost amongst mainstream news outlets bylines and cavalier dismissal of his true agenda and that the state would have us dismiss as a “domestic terrorist” with “anti-government, extremist views”.
Beyond the Bundy Ranch
From Bunkerville to Malheur. Carol Bundy and Jeanette Finicum share their very personal story of the public battle and personal struggle. An incredible journey that captured the attention of the world.
Here’s a Close-up Video of the Event from Bryan Hyde.
April 14th, 2018 · SLCC Auditorium, Sandy, UT
Duane and his horse Hellboy made an 1,100 mile journey to the Lompoc Federal Prison to turn himself in. Judge Anna Brown sentenced him to a year and a day for his part in the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Occupation. His conviction came, denied of a Jury Trial, for digging a trench at the facilities.
Thomas Lacovara-Stewart joined by phone with William J. Wagener and Jamey Landin in a discussion that includes reasons the remote refuge was chosen for the Occupation Protest. #DuaneEhmer #Hellboy #OregonStandoff #Malheur #WildlifeRefuge
A BIG CORRECTION: Duane DID NOT ACCEPT ANY DEAL. It was mistakenly stated in this video that Duane accepted a plea deal. Duane was convicted by judge Anna Brown and sentenced to 1 year and one day. Thank you, Maureen Peltier, for catching this. “(T)here was a jury trial, however, practicing from the bench, Judge Anna Brown also held a bench trial separately but at the same time with several misdemeanors, without the prosecution having initiated it. Brown initiated it on her own before a jury trial ever began.” ty SSGT Mo. I’ve used her photo as the thumbnail for this video. Thank you for Standing in the Gap.

A Long Train of Abuses By Todd C. Engel #presidenttrump
On April 5, 2014, the Bureau of Land Management commenced an operation to impound rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle. In the run-up to the operation, no less than five separate threat assessments were conducted to ascertain the threat that the Bundy’s may pose to law enforcement officers during the roundup. Each and every one of the assessments conducted by the FBI, JTTF, BLM, et.al., showed that the Bundy’s propensity for violence to be virtually nonexistent. With these findings, an appropriate course of action pertaining to a law enforcement presence should have been a few Las Vegas Metro PD officers on scene ensuring the safety of all involved. If that had been the case, the impoundment would likely have been completed without incident. Nevertheless, that would not be the case. The BLM brought in Special Agent in Charge (SAC), Daniel P. Love, who began to stage a small army at his incident command post in the week leading up to the scheduled impoundment. The list of men and material he brought in included:
At least 138 heavily armed agents with level IV body armor, Kevlar helmets and assault rifles.
Two FBI Swat Teams, one from Los Angeles, and one from Las Vegas with attached sniper teams and a F.L.I.R. equipped helicopter.
A U.S. Park Service Special Event Tactical Team (SETT) with an attached sniper team.
Multiple BLM sniper teams
A Mine Resistant Armor Protected (MRAP) vehicle
Drones and Airplanes
Multiple German Shepherd attack dogs
The BLM also set up two “First Amendment Areas” miles away from the impoundment operation for protesters to exercise their 1st Amendment rights. These areas were monitored by cameras and under cover agents who documented the license plates of people in the area. On April 6th, the second day of the gather, agents encountered civilians taking pictures of the gather from the side of the road. For over an hour, BLM agents harass these citizens and attempt to herd them into the “First Amendment Areas.” They threaten them with citations and arrest until they are informed by the United States Attorney’s Office that they have “no arrest authority.” After Just a few short hours later, Dave Bundy is parked on the side of the road filming the gather with his Ipad. A BLM sniper team is deployed on the hill behind him and aim rifles at his back. Agents then approach him, body slam him, grind his face into the gravel and haul him off to jail, all with “no arrest authority.” He is released the next morning with no charges. His Ipad is confiscated and when it is returned, three years later, all video had been erased. As the impoundment continued, BLM agents began to shoot the Bundy’s cattle from helicopters, leaving many valuable bulls dead. They also systematically shot cattle they had corralled at the ICP and bury them in a mass grave. Simultaneously, the BLM and their contractors began to destroy Cliven Bundy’s State of Nevada deeded ‘waters’ that have been in his family for over a hundred years and are protected by Nevada State Law. It’s understandable why they wanted no pictures taken.
Killing his cattle and destroying his waters are crimes under Nevada law.
On April 9th, a spontaneous protest occurs whereby citizens were curious as to why a dump truck and backhoe are involved in gathering cattle. As the protestors attempt to look into the back of the dump truck, an attack dog is released on Ammon Bundy and he is tased three times. His fifty-nine year old aunt is grabbed from behind and violently body slammed to the ground. In the dump truck, they find torched pieces of their water tanks, evidence of BLM criminal activity. When SAC Dan Love is asked by reporter Pete Santilli, if the government is killing cattle, Dan Love states, “we are not killing cattle!” Multiple videos and photographs show different. (All of the information listed above was not allowed to be presented at my trial) On April 12th, a tense protest occurs with armed and unarmed citizens in a wash a few miles from the Bundy residence. As unarmed protestors arrived in the wash, the BLM immediately aimed assault rifles at them and stated over the loudspeaker that they would use lethal force. This precipitated a response from armed protesters who moved down the freeway towards the wash to defend the people from the BLM. During this protest, multiple agents are recorded saying such things as: “This is another Waco,” “This is a shoot first ask questions later type situation,” and after the protest is over, an agent says, “ Not one shot fired. They’re all fucking mouth. We should have ran units in there, smashed em and killed em.” Almost two years after the impoundment, nineteen of us would be arrested and put on trial in three separate tiers. The first tier went to trial on February 6th, 2017, of which I would be included in. Just six weeks before trial, due to my court appointed attorney being incompetent and unprepared, and not wanting another postponement by replacing him, I chose to represent myself pro se. During trial the Judge, Gloria Navarro, in open bias against the defense would not allow me to say the words “U.S. Constitution”, “1st Amendment Right”, “2nd Amendment Right”, “Right to keep and bear arms”, and in a moment of total frustration I asked her if I could say “freedom of speech” in her courtroom. She looked at me and said, “No, you may not.” When the defense got the case and attempted to call our first witness, the prosecution stated that all of our witnesses were “unindicted co-conspirators” and threatened to arrest and indict them if they testified. As a result, only two took the stand in our defense. Just prior to trial, it was discovered that SAC Dan Love had participated in some nefarious activities of which he was under investigation for and was ultimately relieved of duty. In a blow to the government’s case, they removed him as their star witness. No worries though as we would call him to the stand. When the defense attempted to call him, the government fought it and the judge ruled in their favor. The Special Agent in Charge of the entire operation and that agent whose Grand Jury testimony resulted in our indictments, would never take the stand. With Dan Love in a protected status and me completely discouraged at the ongoing conspiracy between the prosecutors and the judge, I asked a witness a single question about Dan Love and was immediately stripped of my pro se status and the ability to defend myself. My standby counsel took over but was completely clueless, knew nothing of the discovery, and continued to take his daily catnaps and e-bay shopping during the trial. As the trial came to a close, we were not allowed jury instructions of “self-defense,” “defense of others,” or “justification” as the judge stated we were unable to prove the presence of BLM “intimidation,” “provocation,” “over aggressiveness,” or the presence of “snipers.” Our only defense would be, “we didn’t do it.” I was ultimately convicted of Count 12, “Obstruction of Justice” and Count 16, “Interstate Travel in Aid of Extortion.” Seven months later, during the third trial in which Cliven, Ryan, Ammon Bundy, and Ryan Payne were defendants, a bombshell memo was sent to the prosecution, the Department of Justice, and Congress. The memo was eighteen pages of outrageous conduct by the BLM, FBI, and USAO and was written by the government’s own lead investigator, Larry Wooten who investigated this incident for almost three years. Wooten stated that on February 17th, 2017, two weeks into my trial, A.U.S. A. Steven Myhre, the lead prosecutor, entered into a conspiracy with Wooten’s direct supervisor, Kent Kleman, to have Wooten removed from the investigation because they didn’t like his findings. All records of his investigation were confiscated from his office and he was told not to discuss the case with anyone. His investigation reports have never been found. This is a classic example of witness tampering and is a crime of “obstruction of justice” as Wooten was on the witness list for my trial. In the spring of 2018, Wooten wrote a second eighteen-page report memo that is so revealing of the governments’ corruption that the judge placed an exceptionally strict protective order on it and to date, it has not been released. In December of 2017, the judge declared a mistrial due to over three thousand pages of ‘Brady’ material (information likely beneficial to the defense) was finally turned over. The new ‘Brady’ material showed:
Five separate threat assessments that showed the Bundy’s were not a threat for violence.
The BLM’s threat assessment showed that (the BLM) were looking to “face-off” and provoke the Bundy’s into a confrontation.
An FBI Operations Order in which the FBI had deployed snipers.
An aerial photograph showing the positions of at least two sniper teams perched above Cliven’s home on the nights of the 5th and 6th, prior to the arrival of protestors or militia. It also showed that the snipers had ranged the distance to his house, carried intermediate range rifles, night vision, thermal imaging devices, and infrared spotlights.
A six man Quick Reaction Force two miles away on stand-by prepared to assault the Bundy residence on the nights of the 5th and 6th.
The presence of live feed cameras above Bundy’s residence feeding real time video back to the ICP and Dan Love.
Evidence that Dan Love, pre-operation, gave a pep talk to his agents telling them to go out there and “kick Cliven in the teeth.”
Evidence that Dan Love sent an email telling his agents how to become “warriors.”
Evidence that Dan Love carried a “kill book” wherein he bragged about being responsible for three suicides in Operation Cerberus Action in Blanding, Utah.
FBI Agent Joel Willis, according to the judge, “hid” exculpatory evidence in his agency vehicle. He stated that he “finally found a thumb drive”, after three years, “on the floor of his vehicle”. On January 8th, 2018, the judge dismissed the case “With Prejudice” against Cliven Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Ammon Bundy, and Ryan Payne due to “Flagrant Prosecutorial Misconduct, Due Process Violations, and multiple Brady Violations.” The government filed a motion asking Judge Navarro to reconsider her decision and on July, 3rd, 2018 she denied their motion and stated that the ‘Brady’ material withheld was at least relevant to Count 5, Count 12, and Count 16; two of the charges of which I was convicted. Shortly thereafter, the government dismissed all charges on the defendants that had not gone to trial yet. My luck for being in the first group! We filed a motion for a new trial due to the multiple ‘Brady’ violations revealing new evidence, a motion for a “Judgement of Acquittal” as the elements of the charges were never met, and a motion to depose Larry Wooten under oath in order to get his story on the record and add additional new evidence to the mountain that already existed. On the day of my sentence hearing, just minutes before going into the courtroom, Judge Navarro denied all three motions stating that the ‘Brady’ violations were not relevant to me and that the new evidence did not reach the threshold for a new trial and deposing Larry Wooten was “moot.” The government had stated, in the indictment, that there were NO government snipers at the Bundy Ranch and therefore Cliven’s assertion of snipers was “false, deceitful, and deceptive” and that his call to the militia for protection was an “unnecessary escalation of tensions.” At trial, I contentiously argued that snipers were present but was continually objected to by the government and sustained by the judge. We now know that as I argued at trial, the government had, in it’s possession, reams of evidence showing that from April 5th through April 12th, snipers were present and active at the Bundy Ranch.
On July 19th, 2018, I was sentenced to fourteen years in Federal Prison. But I was not sentenced for Interstate Travel in Aid of Extortion or Obstruction of Justice but was sentenced for actual Extortion, Assault on a Federal Officer, Threatening a Federal Officer, and Use and Carry of a Firearm during a Crime of Violence; all of the charges I faced at trial but was not convicted.
So why was it so important and why so much effort to remove Cliven Bundy from his land? It certainly was not delinquent grazing fees of $1.3 million, as a government attorney testified in the third trial that Mr. Bundy only owed $8800 in back fees. The answer is quite simple really and could have been found on the BLM’s own website before they removed it. During the impoundment, the website stated that the “Gold Butte Solar Project was not compatible with feral cattle.” There it was for the whole world to see and it had nothing to do with grazing fees. So who were the main players behind this massive land grab? Evidence shows that Senator Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, had formed a partnership and signed contracts with a Chinese solar company to install this solar project in Gold Butte. But they still needed Bundy and his cattle off the land. Harry Reid had a plan. He took one of his high level advisors, Neil Kornze, from his staff and had him moved over to the BLM. From 2009 to 2014, Kornze moved up the ranks until in April 2014 he became the Director of the BLM. To anchor this conspiracy and ensure he had the courts in his pocket, Harry Reid recommended to Barack Obama the appointment of none other than Gloria Navarro as Chief Justice for the District of Nevada. I tremble to think what the outcome of this rogue operation may have been had protestors, armed and unarmed, not heeded the call of this besieged rancher and converged on his ranch from across the country. Would Dan Love have killed this family and burned their house down around them as they assaulted them with snipers and armored vehicles? I thank the Lord that we will never know that answer. From inside a Birmingham, Alabama jail, Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to Justice everywhere.” From inside a prison in Pahrump, Nevada, I couldn’t agree more.
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.
