Evidence of FBI Corruption

Here is a reprise of Oregon Malheur National Wildlife Refuge standoff instigated by the unjust re-sentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond after they had already served time for a conviction that should never have happened. A bunch of ranchers from all over the Western U.S. came as a protest militia against the unjust actions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). There were a few leaders of this rancher militia but the few headlines that made into the MSM placed Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan as the faces of BLM resistance. Ammon and Ryan were fresh off a successful standoff with their father Cliven Bundy in Nevada.

 

Here’s a rehash of the Hammonds’ BLM difficulties:

 

According to an October 7, 2015 press release from the Obama Department of Justice, Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46, both residents of Diamond, Oregon in Harney County, were sentenced to five years in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken for arsons they committed on federal lands.

The men were charged nearly a decade after the first fire and five years after the second.

 

Oregon Live reports on the fires:

 

The Hammonds’ run-ins with the government began in 1999, when Steven Hammond started a fire that escaped onto U.S. Bureau of Land Management territory. The intent of the fire was to burn off juniper and sagebrush that hindered the growth of grass for their cattle.

BLM employees reminded Steven Hammond that although his family leased public land for grazing, he couldn’t burn it without a permit. But in September 2001, the Hammonds started another fire. This one ran off their property on Steens Mountain, consumed 139 acres of public land and took the acreage out of production for two growing seasons, according to court papers.

Then in August 2006, lightning sparked several fires near the spot where the Hammonds grew their winter feed. Steven Hammond set a back-burn to thwart the advancing flames, and it burned across about an acre of public land, according to federal court records.

 

 

First, both men were sentenced in 2012 by now-retired U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan, following the trial. Steven received one year and a day in prison for setting fires in 2001 and 2006. Dwight got 3 months for his 2001 involvement. Hogan did not believe the men had malicious intent to be labeled as terrorists under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, even though he sentenced them to jail for the time he did.

 

 

Both men served their sentences and were released. Now, the feds have appealed those sentences and want the mandatory minimum five-year sentence imposed on the men, and so they appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, who agreed with the feds that the judge ruled illegally. However, now they are wanting to label the Hammonds as terrorists under the 1996 law in order to put them back in jail.

NOW, after this rehash and couple it with the Obama Leftist corrupt regime which pushed much of the BLM land grabbing and rancher persecution; there are HUGE indications that the FBI has become so inculcated with Obama’s Leftist swamp, that they are severely a part of the problem to devastate the property rights of Ranchers.

 

Can you say, Communist redistribution in favor of State management?

SHERIFF BACKS CLAIMS OF FBI-LAWBREAKING IN OREGON STANDOFF

Documentary-makers release more evidence that raises questions

The Hammond family

 

In a stunning development a year after the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, where two-dozen armed supporters gathered to protest the courts’ extension of sentences for two ranchers, a sheriff has backed claims of FBI misbehavior.

 

The declaration came from Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson just as FBI agent W. Joseph Astarita was pleading not guilty to three counts of making false statements and two counts of obstruction of justice in federal court in Portland, Oregon.

 

The FBI agent was accused of firing at the protesters, then picking up shell casings to conceal that fact and lying to investigators.

 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oregon said Astarita falsely stated he had not fired his weapon during the attempted arrest of protester LaVoy Finicum, who was shot dead by another officer during the incident, “when he knew he had in fact fired his weapon.”

 

“Astarita also knowingly engaged in misleading conduct toward Oregon State Police officers by failing to disclose that he had fired two rounds during the attempted arrest,” the statement said.

 

Nelson said, as the Washington Times reported, that the actions by “multiple members of the FBI Hostage Rescue Team” had “damaged the integrity of the entire law enforcement profession, which makes me both disappointed and angry.”

Nelson said he told Justice Department and FBI officials, including now-acting Director Andrew McCabe, over a year ago about “possible criminal conduct” by some involved FBI Hostage Rescue Team agents.

 

And while the case against Astarita is in court, new evidence also is arising from the makers of an acclaimed documentary about the incident.

 

WND reported earlier on the armed standoff that has been variously described by opponents as “militia terrorism” and by defenders as rebellion against government tyranny.

 

The 41-day standoff ended in mass arrests after law enforcement fatally shot one of the occupiers.

 

The documentary is “American Standoff,” and while it aired previously on DirecTV, it can now be viewed in its entirety at this website. Among the people interviewed in the documentary is best-selling author and WND Vice President David Kupelian.

 

The “American Standoff” story starts with Dwight and Steven Hammond, Oregon ranchers who were controversially convicted and sentenced for setting a controlled land-management fire on their property that went out of control onto federal land. But after they served their sentences and were released, a judge – at a federal prosecutor’s insistence – ordered them back into court, where they were sentenced to further time in prison under an anti-terrorism law, even though there was no evidence presented that the ranchers had planned or engaged in terrorism in any way.

 

Sympathetic ranchers and others – encouraged by the federal government’s stand-down from a previous armed confrontation in Nevada two years earlier on the land of rancher Cliven Bundy – protested the new injustice and ended up staging an armed occupation of the refuge.

 

They succeeded in keeping federal officers at bay until they were finally taken into custody when police staged a highly dangerous highway stop of vehicles carrying the protesters and shot two men.

 

Ryan Bundy, one of Cliven Bundy’s sons, was injured, while LaVoy Finicum was killed.

 

Eventually, seven of the others who were arrested were acquitted of federal charges related to the standoff. The feds even dismissed charges against a self-described independent broadcaster, Peter Santilli, who documented the occupation near Burns, Oregon, but was accused by prosecutors of being part of the protest group.

 

However, one of the FBI agents was charged with serious infractions of the law for the final confrontation. So far, Astarita is the only FBI agent to be indicted.

 

In addition to the feature-length “American Standoff” documentary, director Josh Turnbow and his film-making crew have now produced a series of “Aftermath” short video segments that have been posted online.

 

In the first, Jeanette Finicum, the widow of LaVoy Finicum, explains how the government, after killing her husband, also canceled the lease she needed to continue her family’s ranching operation.

 

She said she has lawyers fighting to restore the lease.

 

And she said a wrongful death case is inevitable against the government after a certain legal time period passes.

 

She insists her husband had his hands in the air and was surrendering but “was murdered.”

 

“He was mowed down in cold blood.”

 

Then, the video explains, the federal agents were “caught on camera, picking up casings before the forensic team arrived at the site of the shooting.”

 

Also, the video shows, Finicum’s gun, which he reportedly had been reaching for, wasn’t found for eight hours after the shooting.

 

“How many people tended to his body without finding it?” the video asks.

Turnbow told WND the “Aftermath” series continues the stories of people affected by the standoff.

In addition to conducting in-depth interviews with nearly everyone involved on all sides of the conflict, Turnbow said he tapped WND’s managing editor, David Kupelian, to offer a journalist’s perspective and analysis.

 

“I think Josh Turnbow did a terrific job in ‘American Standoff,’” said Kupelian, “not just in fairly and sensitively presenting all sides of a complex and troubling situation, but in telling a riveting, deeply thought-provoking true story about today’s America.”

 

Kupelian said the documentary “captures the classic modus operandi of an oppressive government: Perpetrate injustice, provoking widespread public outrage, which always includes a small number of people who seriously overreact and, however well-meaning, do something illegal or irresponsible – and then portray them as the real problem, or in this case as ‘criminals’ and ‘terrorists.’”

 

He said the main provocation in the story was “convicting two Oregon cattle ranchers, a father and son team whose controlled burn on their own property had gotten out of control and migrated onto federal land, with arson under an anti-terrorism statute that mandates a minimum five-year prison sentence.”

 

“Even the presiding judge said such a severe and unjust sentence would ‘shock the conscience.’ Well, it did shock the conscience of a lot of other ranchers – and the Malheur standoff was the result,” he said.

 

Get David Kupelian’s culture-war blockbusters, “The Marketing of Evil,” “How Evil Works” and his latest, “The Snapping of the American Mind” at the WND Superstore. Also available in e-book and audiobook versions.

 

Turnbow said he would like to find out what really happened and consider what the outcome should have been, especially with regard to the still-imprisoned ranchers serving a five-year “terrorism” sentence.

 

“We should be talking about it,” Turnbow says.

 

The larger issue at hand – federal control over land in the American West – continues to loom large.

 

The federal government is the largest landowner in the Rocky Mountain and Western states, owning contiguous parcels of millions of acres.

 

Conflicts between ranchers, who in some instances have owned and worked their land for generations, and a federal government seemingly always hungry for more, are common.

 

President Trump’s recent executive order to review the possibility of shrinking the boundaries of federal monuments could help defuse the longstanding tensions between America’s ranchers and the government.

Another Perspective of LaVoy Finicum Murder


Finicum Shot in Back Defending Constitution

John R. Houk

© April 30, 2016

 

I came across a video interview of a lady protestor in Burbank California protesting the murder of LaVoy Finicum in late January 2016. The method of the interview was the Mark Connors Show. You hear the audio of Connors – I believe – communicating to the lady via an onsite correspondent who seemingly relays Connors’ questions from what is heard in the correspondent’s ear bud. It is quite emotional!

 

Sadly, on my part, I moved on after reading about the Bundys, other ranch protest leaders of the Mahleur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns and pro-protester Youtube investigator Pete Santili being arrested by Oregon State Police and the FBI. I knew the railroad of the Justice system was about to commence. Normal Conservative outlets that were covering the standoff in Oregon also moved on so it was a bit of out-of-sight/out-of-mind for me.

 

The emotion of the protestor brought back a flood of memories about this government injustice toward American citizens making a living from the land even after government appropriation of that land.

 

The lady interviewed in this video is absolutely correct. My fellow Americans, don’t believe everything the government tells you AND especially from an Obama Administration led government.

 

Before cross posting the emotional video of a California protestor I need to revisit Finicum’s murder by State and Federal authorities.

 

Officially Finicum’s shooting was ruled justified rather than homicide. And you got to know there are many Conservatives that have swallowed the justified shooting ruling hook, line and sinker. You may have even seen commentary and transcripts of police vs. Finicum verbal exchanges leading up to Finicum being shot to death.

 

The thing is someone inside the same truck Finicum was in wisely took a cell phone video of the police vs. Finicum verbal exchange. If you listen to the cell phone video and line it up with the FBI released video, you will get a vastly different perspective of the Official account given by authorities.

 

So this is what I’m going to do. I’m going to cross post an article posted at Fellowship of the Minds. The Fellowship of the Minds first places the case of the Official account and follows it with the cell phone video which is simultaneously lined up with the FBI released video. It is quite enlightening and I pray you are not too stubborn to understand the truth.

 

Following the Fellowship of the Minds post I’ll cross post the G+ Constitutionalist Group of the lady emotionally protesting the murder of LaVoy Finicum.

Police shot Oregon protester Lavoy Finicum 3 times in back

 

By Dr. Eowyn

March 10, 2016

Fellowship of the Minds

 

Last December, Ammon Bundy and armed militia members gathered in Burns, Oregon (about 280 miles southeast of Portland), to protest the jailing of local ranchers, father and son Dwight and Steven Hammond, for lighting fires on federal properties in 2001 and 2006 in order to scale back invasive plants and to protect their private lands from wildfires. (Ammon is the son of Nevada rancher Clive Bundy who had an armed standoff with federal authorities in 2014 over grazing rights. That matter was settled peacefully, after the Bureau of Land Management backed off and left the scene.)

 

After a peaceful rally in Burns, Ammon Bundy and the militia protesters took over a facility at the Mahleur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns.

 

On January 27, 2016, the feds put an end to the standoff by shooting dead Robert “LaVoy” Finicum multiple times at close range, and arresting other protesters, including:

 

  • Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox and Ryan Waylen Payne, who were arrested at a traffic stop on their way from Burns, Oregon, to a community meeting with ranchers in John Day, Oregon.

 

  • Joseph Donald O’Shaughnessy (Captain O.) and Peter Santilli, who were arrested in Burns.

 

  • Jon Ritzheimer reportedly turned himself into police in Peoria, Arizona.

 

Yesterday, March 9, 2016, county prosecutors ruled the killing of Finicum “justified and necessary” despite the fact he had been shot three times in the back.

 

Below is a tweet, by RT anchor/correspondent Simone del Rosario, of an autopsy report’s sketch showing three gun wounds on Finicum’s back:

 

autopsy-report-of-lavoy-finicum-showing-3-gun-wounds-on-back

autopsy-report-of-lavoy-finicum-showing-3-gun-wounds-on-back

 

Here are excerpts from Les Zeitz’s report for The Oregonian/Oregon Live of the dramatic events that led to Finicum’s death:

 

As Robert “Lavoy” Finicum powered his Dodge pickup over Devine Summit on the state highway north of Burns, he spotted the police van idling on a U.S. Forest Service road.

 

Finicum glanced over at the state trooper in the driver’s seat as he went past.

He pointed a finger at him, as if to say “I see you” and kept going.

 

That likely was the moment Finicum realized he and his group wouldn’t make the community meeting planned that evening in John Day.

 

Less than 30 minutes later, Finicum was dead and four other leaders of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge takeover were in handcuffs.

 

Police knew the leaders planned to travel to John Day in Grant County to the north on the only direct highway there – U.S. 395.

 

They devised a traffic stop by state troopers to allow FBI agents to arrest the group on federal conspiracy charges. By midday, some members of the arresting team positioned themselves on Forest Service Road 2820, which branches east off the state highway toward a snow park near the summit of Devine Ridge. Another team set up roughly two miles north on the highway, prepared to act as a roadblock.

 

“The sheriff is waiting for us,” Finicum yelled out the driver’s window to the officers and agents staged behind his truck.

 

He puts his hands out the window and invited police to shoot.

 

“Back down or you kill me now,” he said.

 

He repeated twice more that he was going to meet the sheriff.

 

Ryan Bundy, 43, of Mesquite, Nevada, seated behind Finicum with a .38-caliber pistol and two rifles within reach, yelled out the window: “Who are you?”

 

Finicum echoed him. “Yeah, who are you?”

 

“Oregon State Police” came the reply.

 

“I’m going over to meet the sheriff in Grant County,” Finicum said.

 

Police continued demanding Finicum turn off the truck and surrender, according to officer statements to investigators. But they didn’t move against those in the truck as they waited for a trooper posted at McConnell’s Jeep to bring a launcher with multiple pepper spray rounds.

 

Those in the truck talked about what to do next.

 

“If we duck and you drive, what are they going to do?” [Shannon] Cox asked Finicum. “Try to knock us out?”

 

He noted they still had “50 ass miles” to go to reach John Day. He turned up the volume on country music that had been playing on the radio

.

“Who can we call?” Bundy asked.

 

“Sheriff Palmer,” Finicum responded.

 

As Bundy and Cox tried to get a cell signal, Finicum continued yelling at police.

 

“You want a blood bath?” he asked. “I’m going to be laying down here on the ground with my blood on the street or I’m going to see the sheriff.

 

[…] Finicum instantly stepped out of the truck, his hands out to his sides at about shoulder height. Investigators concluded that an FBI agent on the highway clipped off two shots, one that went wild and one that pierced the truck roof and shattered the left rear passenger window. A shell fragment struck Bundy in the shoulder.

 

The trooper who had made it to the tree line had drawn his revolver and now commanded Finicum to get on the ground.

 

“Go ahead and shoot me,” Finicum said.

 

“Get on the ground,” the trooper yelled back.

 

Finicum continued yelling “Shoot me” and “You’re going to have to shoot me.”

 

He turned his attention from the trooper in the woods to two troopers coming up behind him, including the one who had fired at the truck. As Finicum shifted direction, the trooper in the woods holstered his gun and drew out his Taser X2, which can be effective from 25 feet but works best at about 15 feet.

 

Finicum at least twice reached with his right hand toward the inside of his left jacket, where he had a loaded Ruger SR9 semi-automatic pistol that had been a gift from his stepson.

 

He then turned back toward the trooper approaching with the Taser. He again reached for his jacket.

 

“It was consistent with drawing a handgun,” the trooper with the Taser told investigators. “He’s going for a gun and I can tell you right now, uh, I was very uncomfortable.”

 

He continued ordering Finicum to stop.

 

“He had the drop on me at this point,” the trooper said.

 

One of the troopers who had been coming up behind Finicum saw the same motion – “consistent with grabbing a firearm” is how he described it to investigators.

 

“I need to take action to stop him from being a threat” to the trooper with the Taser, he later told investigators.

 

He fired two rounds, both striking Finicum in the back. At the same instant, another trooper nearby fired a single round into Finicum’s back.

 

[…] Fifty seconds after Finicum left his truck, the shooting was over.”

 

You can hear and see Finicum yelling to the police in the video below of cell phone footage from inside Finicum’s truck (lower left corner) synced with aerial footage taken by the FBI. Finicum was in the driver’s seat, while Ryan Bundy, Victoria Sharp and Shauna Cox were in the back seat.

In a video shown at a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office press conference today, the aerial FBI video of the LaVoy Finicum shooting has been synced with a cellphone video Shawna Cox recorded from within Finicum’s truck.

 

Do you think Finicum had goaded police to shoot him? Was shooting him in the back justified? How could the police have de-escalated the situation?

Educator and Speaker

KrisAnne teaches, on average, 265 classes in over 22 States every year to people of all walks of life about the the Constitution, our Bill of Rights and what we can do to defend, promote and preserve liberty for generations to come.

The Roots of Liberty

This is KrisAnne’s 5 hour workshop. In order to preserver Liberty for our posterity, Americans must know that the Constitution was not an invention of our framers and the Bill of Rights was not an afterthought. Everything contained within our Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights is the product of over 700 years of time tested, blood bought experiences that gave us our foundational principles. KrisAnne will show you where these documents came from, why our framers created a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy, how we are operating outside the perimeters of the Constitution and HOW to return to our Roots of Liberty. Every American should have this training, especially those who have taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

The Genealogy of the Constitution

This is KrisAnne’s introductory lesson upon which all other presentations rest. You cannot rightly understand the Constitution without a proper framing of its foundation. In this 1hr presentation KrisAnne presents the 700yr history and 5 foundational charters that gave us our founding documents. You will see the striking parallels between today’s events and the events that illuminated our framers’ understanding. You will go away inspired and hopeful, ready to take up the torch of liberty again!

The Genealogy of the Constitution For Students

This education is for middle school, high school, and college students alike! This is KrisAnne’s introductory lesson upon which all other presentations rest designed especially for our students. You cannot rightly understand the Constitution without a proper framing of its foundation. This history is essential to understanding why our framers designed a Constitutional Republic and NOT a Democracy. We are not teaching this in our schools and there is no curriculum that connects these historical events for our students. If we do not train our children to understand Liberty, they will never understand their obligation in the future to defend it. It is time to take back the education of our students and establish some patriots on purpose.

Foundations of Religious Liberty (For Churches & Groups)

Today Religious Liberty is under assault in America on a scale not seen in over 200 years. The truth is that the expansion of liberty throughout our history has almost always been fought within a religious liberty context. KrisAnne shares the history that gave us the declarations we find in READ THE REST
