In a stunning turn of events following Judge Navarro’s order that the prosecution turn over all evidence regarding video and agents at Bundy Ranch in 2014, reports are coming out the evidence that was not allowed to be presented in the previous two trials was shown to the jury on Wednesday and that evidence basically shutdown the prosecution from any rebuttal.
In a video report from John Lamb and Kelly Stewart, who attended the trial and have been reporting on it live from Nevada, said that such evidence as photos of snipers surrounding the Bundy house four days ahead of the impoundment, unlike the prosecution claimed, and photos of Bureau of Land Management agents with guns trained on protesters, as well as other acts of aggression by the BLM.
“We had a great day,” said Lamb, who has been reporting on the trials since they began. “The government hasn’t been able to object to one thing with the new evidence that’s been provided.”
Lamb said that this was due to the newly released evidence, which has now been deemed to be relevant. The jury is now seeing the real face of the central government’s tyranny, and I’m guessing that one again, it is not going to go well for Steven Myhre.
There were several bombshells in the trial too.
One was a government witness by the name of Mary Ann Rudwell stated on the witness, under oath, that their only goal was to impound the cows to either give them back to Cliven Bundy to let him put them on his 160-acre ranch or sell them and give them the money.
Of course, we know that the BLM, led by criminal Daniel P. Love, did far more than that in setting up “free speech zones,” killing cattle and threatening and acting violently towards protesters.
All the defendants are being charged with extortion, and now we’re discovering that the extortion charge is absurd!
According to this witness, she admitted that they didn’t have in order to sell the cows to keep the money.
Who was actually paying for the impoundment? The central government, wait, that’s you and me in taxes.
Furthermore, Lamb produced a document that one of the attorneys for Cliven Bundy gave him that was part of the evidence.
The document shows the trespass fees that Bundy owed, and guess what? It was only $8,815 and that’s for over ten years, not millions or hundreds of thousands of dollars that we were told by the media and central government propaganda outlets.
Because the BLM was not fulfilling their obligations on the land, he tried to pay these fees to Clark County in the state of Nevada, which if anything, the land doesn’t really belong to the central government and not really should be owned by the state, but by individuals. However, he was thinking the state would have the control under our Constitution since the Constitution is crystal clear on how the central government may obtain land.
Bundy was only arguing that he did not owe the money to the BLM.
Lamb compared what Bundy owed, $8,815, to the vast expenses that the central government has shelled out hundreds of thousands of dollars just on contract cowboys alone, plus the impoundment and then on top of that over $100 million spent on these worthless trials to bring out a false narrative against the defendants.
Is there anyone that actually thinks the central government is efficient in anything but lawlessness and corruption?
They didn’t even give the Bundys a chance to sell the cows.
Stewart said the witness claimed that the reason the cattle were being impounded had nothing to do with money, but looney left-wing environmentalism such as:
- Environment is being you know negatively impacted
- Soil is being trampled on
- The desert tortoises
None of those things are anything the central government has any constitutional authority to deal with in the first place.
But the biggest issue was that he allegedly had his cows on the property without a permit! Really? A permit? Well, ok it was about money. The central government extorts its citizens for money for worthless permits to use land it shouldn’t even have claim to in the first place per our Constitution, and don’t give me the Louisiana Purchase treaty deal.
While treaties may exist under our Constitution, a treaty may not violate the clear written words of the Constitution. In other words, when that land was purchased and states were established, that land should have immediately gone under state control or to those who settled it.
As Stewart so accurately put it, “So, this all comes down to a piece of paper. This isn’t about the $4000 or $8000 they’re saying he owed them that turned into a million somehow when it hit the media. This is that he was doing something without a permit and he had not received permission from his master to have these cows grazing on the land that he, in fact, had the grazing rights to.”
Why is that a big deal?
Simple. If he just has that piece of paper, his cows trampling the soil is OK, the desert tortoise is magical preserved and the environment remains pristine with just that piece of paper.
It’s sort of like that little thing called indulgences, which we are celebrating a 500-year old protest about under Martin Luther against the Roman Catholic Church for selling little pieces of paper called indulgences that claimed to spring the souls of dead loved ones from Purgatory into Heaven. What God would not do out of love, He would do for a few coins, which would later be used to build what you see in Rome, St. Peters in the Vatican.
The central government is playing God with the peoples’ rights and the peoples’ land. That’s what this is about, and money and control are driving the entire facade.
If Bundy had only gotten the permit that would have granted another ten years of grazing on this land and nothing would have happened.
There would have been no impoundment, no roundup and no BLM with snipers pointed at women and children in the wash.
Lamb said that the entire thing reminded him of a guilty plea.
“A guilty plea makes you safe for the public, but you’re presumed innocent and locked up for two years,” he elaborated. “That’s exactly what this permit is about.”
He then pointed to another situation involving Joe Roberson, who was locked up in Montana because he dug a pond on his own property without a permit. There was nothing wrong with it and it wasn’t polluting anything, but a piece of paper would have gotten the Beast’s approval and therefore made it perfect.
For those of you who thought you were out from under the King of England, we’ve simply traded one tyrant for a bunch of other tyrants.
We’ve done that through our own ignorance. It’s up to the people to start learning the Constitution and start enforcing it on those who represent them.
The Bundys and their supporters have shown us the way.
