The federal government gave you a gift I believe you should take advantage of. By convicting the Hammonds of terrorism they have set a court precedent (stare decisis) that can be used against them.
Using the Hammond case as a precedent (stare decisis) a class action suit and charges should be filed against the BLM for domestic terrorism.
The attention needs to be directed to the BLM’s long history of setting fires that have burned out of control consuming thousands of acres of private and public property. The millions of dollars in damage to structures, land, burned and maimed livestock, wild animals, and duress placed on families and communities is unacceptable.
Charging the Hammond’s as terrorists is hypocritical when you take into account what the BLM has done. The BLM needs to be held accountable for their “terrorist” crimes against the public.
Years after ranchers have been burned out the BLM has made no effort to compensate for the damages.
“These men came to Harney County claiming to be part of militia groups supporting local ranchers, when in reality these men had alternative motives to attempt to over throw the county and federal government in hopes to spark a movement across the United States,” said the Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward in a statement released on Sunday.
“We are currently working jointly with several organizations to make sure the citizens of Harney County are safe and this issue is resolved as quickly and peaceful as possible. At this time we do not have any information that any other areas in Harney County are in immediate danger.
“We ask that people stay away from the refuge for their safety. We also ask that if anyone sees any of these individuals in the area to please contact law enforcement and do not confront the individuals themselves…”
PATRIOTS WANT TO RETURN THEM TO NATIVE AMERICANS!
As I suggested to the Bundys ....these should be blessed by the Creator, and offered to the Paiute Nation as a Peace offering.
Just my opinion......My respect to the Honorable Paiute Nation....this is my offering to you in and for peace and love between us. We are not your enemy.
Native American artifacts found at refuge buried in filth and rodent droppings.
With a heavy heart we bring you this report of horrible conditions for objects of native cultural heritage being treated with disrespect. Contrary to reports by main stream media who have accused the Refuge protesters of allegedly desecrating Native American objects, this report should prove once and for all that it is the US Federal Government bureaucracy that is responsible for that and far worse. These objects are dated stored and tagged for 35 years or more.
Report broken by Thomas Robert Lacovara-Stewart and Blaine Cooper of Third Watch
If this continues on, and the authorities do nothing, the question is how long till the local residents decide to take matters into their own hand or even the federal government decides to do something and start to move against this group, where it starts to become another Ruby Ridge or Waco? Or will the public decide that the response is correct and support the federal government?
That is a loaded question. Rephrase and you may get a response.
How does one "act legally" within a system to reform it when the system itself has created laws to steal from the people it is supposed to serve?
We have not been "together" for more than 200 years, the experiment continues. Bundy is not bringing rational people together.
Either way it is the end of the "Great American Experiment" if we don't come together.
Perhaps you do not understand the meaning of "loaded question." It does not mean a complicated question, it means a question which which makes assumptions.
I think it was a pretty straight forward question. Perhaps too complicated?
There is little similarity between Ruby Ridge or Waco.
There is no legal authority for the feds to own or maintain any land therefore there is no legal authority for anyone to contract with them to do so. All subsequent contracts are illegal and therefore null & void. It is about complete federal control.
The framers did NOT give SCOTUS the ultimate authority to be the ultimate arbiters of the Constitution & federal power. That is a modern abhorrent interpretation of the Constitution and judicial power. James Madison and John Jay and the rest of the framers wrote that the States were the ultimate authority of the application of the Constitution and the people the ultimate power. We need to put down the SCOTUS opinions, the government's desires, and the mainstream ignorance and get the wisdom of the writers of the Constitution.
So glad that KrisAnne Hall stepped up to the plate and put this video together. If you want to try to get down to the brass tacks jurisdictional issue, and want to have any kind of solid understanding of the core principle(s), this is a good place to start. A week later, it has over 260,000 views. KrisAnne Hall nails it!
What is the REAL Issue in Oregon? — Taking Back the Narrative
I really like what KrisAnne Hall has been saying...
The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.[
