Buckle up Patriots! It’s getting real out there. For taking a stand against corrupt DC government that has usurped its authority when it comes to land in the West, patriots are being rounded up on trumped up charges, and on Thursday, 12 more patriots were indicted.
Back in February we reported on the sources that were claiming that there was a total of 68 warrants issued for patriots who stood alongside Cliven Bundy and his family in Nevada in 2014 against the Bureau of Land Management due to constitutional issues regarding land ownership. Many thought that escapade was over and done with since the standoff in Oregon had taken place. However, the DC thugs have determined to trump up charges on US patriots who stood for the Constitution and against the criminals out of Washington, DC. What did they get for their efforts? They have been arrested and indicted on numerous charges while those who actually committed crimes against the people are left to continue terrorizing other ranchers in the West and Mid-West.
On Thursday, I reported that a member of the Bundy family, as well as a veteran who is a Trump campaign official were arrested in this FBI shakedown of patriots. I also had confirmation of at least three more arrests at the time.
Friday, it was reported that more arrests were made.
“I truly believe this is showing the federal government thinks they have unlimited power over we the people,” Carol Bundy told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “What kind of government do we have?”
“This is going to be won in the court of public opinion,” she added. “When we the people make a stand, that’s when we’ll win.”
These men were among 16 defendants who pleaded not guilty to the federal conspiracy charges laid against them. Among the charges are conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States; threatening a federal law enforcement officer; obstruction of justice; attempting to impede or injure a federal law enforcement officer; and several firearms charges. A total of 25 people have been charged in the occupation so far.
The Idaho Statesman reports:
Eric James Parker, the Hailey electrician whose photograph aiming his rifle at federal agents near the Bundy Ranch in Nevada went worldwide in 2014, was arrested with three other Idaho men Thursday as part of a nationwide roundup.
Parker, 32, and Steve Arthur Stewart, 36, both of Hailey, O. Scott Drexler, 44, of Challis and Todd Engel, 48, of Boundary County were taken into custody on charges stemming from the standoff ….
The others arrested are Melvin D. Bundy, 41, of Round Mountain, Nev.; David H. Bundy, 39, of Delta, Utah; Brian D. Cavalier, 44, of Bunkerville, Nev.; Blaine Cooper, 36, of Humboldt, Ariz.; Gerald A. DeLemus, 61, of Rochester, N.H.; Richard R. Lovelien, 52, of Westville, Okla.; Gregory P. Burleson, 52, of Phoenix, Ariz.; Joseph D. O’Shaughnessy, 43, of Cottonwood, Ariz.; and Micah L. McGuire, 31, and Jason D. Woods, 30, both of Chandler, Ariz.
Reporter Pete Santilli remains in jail without bond. As columnist and attorney John Whitehead wrote regarding Santilli, “The government doesn’t actually believe that 50-year-old Santilli is an accomplice to any criminal activity. Read between the lines and you’ll find that what the government is really accusing Santilli of is employing dangerous speech.
“As court documents indicate, the government is prosecuting Santilli solely as a reporter of information,” added Whitehead. “In other words, they’re making an example of him, which is consistent with the government’s ongoing efforts to intimidate members of the media who portray the government in a less than favorable light.”
People have been accused of far more dangerous crimes and been released on bail than any of these men have been. In fact, a federal judge deemed Cliven Bundy “lawless and violent” and must remain in jail. What people fail to remember is the crimes of the BLM at Bundy Ranch, the fires they started the destroyed ranchers properties, the cold blooded murder of Lavoy Finicum and their threats and unconstitutional assaults on American citizens. These are the real domestic terrorists, America.
