Ammon Bundy & Brother Found “Not Guilty”

Ammon Edward Bundy (born September 1, 1975) is an American car fleet manager who led armed militants in the 2016 occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

He is the son of rancher Cliven Bundy, who was the central figure of the 2014 Bundy standoff regarding unpaid grazing fees on federally-owned public land.

Ammon Bundy, his brother Ryan, and five other defendants were charged by the federal government for conspiracy and weapons violations in the “occupation”.

According to the October 27th New York Times,

.

“PORTLAND, Ore. — Armed antigovernment protesters led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy, charged in the takeover of a federally owned Oregon wildlife sanctuary in January, were acquitted Thursday of federal conspiracy and weapons charges.

“The surprise verdict in Federal District Court was a blow to the government, which had argued that the group used force and threats of violence to occupy the reserve, impeding the federal workers there. But the jury appeared swayed by the occupiers’ contention that they were protesting government overreach and posed no threat.

“In a sign of the high tensions throughout the trial, Ammon Bundy’s lawyer, Marcus R. Mumford, was restrained by four United States Marshals in courtroom tussle after the verdict on Thursday. He was enraged that the Bundys were not being immediately released.”

.

Defense attorney Marcus Mumford was not merely “restrained,” he was tased.  Judging from his video interview (below) he was not enraged.  He was merely asking by what authority the U.S. Marshals might continue to detain the defendants after they’d been found Not Guilty.  He was reportedly surrounded by U.S. Marshals, threatened with charges of “resisting arrest,” knocked to the floor and then tased.  In court.

What a circus.  What a story.  What a movie (I’m thinking Brad Pitt with a beard).

The first video (below) is of defense attorney Morgan Philpot’s comments after the jury found both Bundy brothers and their five co-defendants Not Guilty.  The jury’s Not Guilty verdict was more than the defendants had dared to hope for.  If even the left is critical of government, government’s in deep trouble.

That Not Guilty verdict for “Armed antigovernment protesters” has got to be a huge blow to government morale.  This should be especially true since the verdict was reached in Portland, Oregon, a seriously left-leaning community.

I view the verdict as evidence of the same anti-government sentiment that animates populism around the world and the Trump candidacy in the USA.  Perhaps the American people have finally had just about enough of big government.

Will government roll over” and concede to the growing powers of populism?  Or will government attempt to become even more aggressive?

Well shall see.

But, for now, every American patriot, dissident and anti-government activist can take heart and celebrate a victory so astonishing, so enormous, that it’s hard to imagine how it could’ve happened without the Good LORD’s help.  Today, while one shameless, criminal bitch is running for the presidency in Washington DC, six heroic men and one heroic woman were found Not Guilty in Portland, Oregon.

This country’s not finished yet.

Here’s attorney Marcus Mumford’s description of how he was tased–in court–by U.S. Marshals:

This is the first case I can recall when I felt proud of some attorneys.  These are not “greed is good” lawyers.  They appear to be “good is good” attorneys.

As I said, this is going to be a movie.  Big time.  Cowboy hats.  Horses.  Guns.  Tyrannical government thugs.  Ordinary men and women as heroes.  Even lawyers doing good.  How can it miss?  Movie audiences will CHEER when the jury says “Not Guilty”.  They’ll clap their hands.  They’ll stand up from their seats.  They’ll stomp their feet.  And when the jury says “Not Guilty,” the movie audience will CHEER.  And, in doing so, they will throw another big scare into the establishment and big government.

    Great news to wake up to in the morning! No news of it on local news yet….I guess the media will think people might get a clue about the protested land grab going on in Idaho for a gas line… isn’t this the same dialogue; big corporations against the people???? I’m happy for the Bundys, God Bless them all!!! Good reporting Al!

    Yet this controversy, intended to brought to a very public forum, is far from over. Bundys were in a mode of civil disobedience during the occupation. They are not “militia leaders” as portrayed by the media. They were hoping to publicly expose the federal government’s unlawful claim to OWN land, knowing that the alleged “ownership” did not carry the required JURISDICTION. The constitutions do not allow the federal government to own public land except to fulfill their limited duties as set forth in Article 1 Sec 8. Unanswered Petitions for Redress of Grievances to all parties in authority were but one of the elements used for exhausting administrative remedies.

    The issue of subject matter jurisdiction was brought forward in a Motion to Dismiss that will be of interest to your readers. See https://www.justice.gov/usao-or/file/851701/download

    This is the heart of the whole controversy. The trial itself was about some folks interfering with government employees and their ability to do their work. Had nothing to do with federal jurisdiction over the Refuge or even Trespassing. No charges were made against anyone, even to the time of the premeditated murder of LaVoy Finicum and the occupants of his rig (including 2 women). People from the Refuge peacefully walked the streets of Burns for weeks, unhindered. They did nothing wrong. The feds could not charge them because they knew they had no jurisdiction. I hear they were scrambling to get some evidence of constitutional ownership up to the day before the trial was to begin. Anna Brown did a pitiful job impersonating an impartial judge, and was a silent advocate for the feds—as you would expect.

    See this revealing video of forensic proof of the clear plot by the feds to murder everyone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLIUDBrU9Cs

    I traveled to the Protest and to the Refuge multiple times to see for myself what was really happening there. I added my name to the visitors log, noting over a dozen pages of yellow legal tablet filled with the names of others who visited and can confirm the TRUE conditions found there. The controlled media was predictable wrong about almost everything. Paid informants infiltrated, but they could find little wrong with the occupiers. The feds themselves trashed the place after the occupiers had left. It was clean and orderly, after the employees had left it filthy. The feds TOTALLY overreacted to situation, allowed to do so by an interim Sheriff who did not understand the true power and authority of County Sheriffs over federal agents.

    There will be much more to come out over the un-addressed clarification of federal land ownership. This is a BIG movement. Research the Americans Lands Council and the Tenth Amendment Center to see how BIG it really is. The feds have a LOT to lose here, and they are throwing all their negative propaganda into this. The upcoming trials for the Bundys in Nevada should finally expose the heart of the federal deceptions about its claim of authority. Stay tuned for the REAL story, folks. It WILL come out!

    So, what about some “justice” for Robert LaVoy Finicum now? Don’t know about you all, but I will have a serious heart-ache until the federal/state gov-scum agents complicit in his death – including one, Dan Love (sic) are brought to justice and HANGED!

    Folks, besides our great Father in heaven, there is one man in your county who has the constitutional authority/power to stand between you and the encroaching criminal Federal agencies. The SHERIFF. And a sheriff has no lawful right to negotiate or abdicate his authority and powers. To do so is treasonous.
