Pseudonymous Conspiracy blogger Tony Newbill sent me a series of news articles that makes a point based on how the Hammond family was railroaded by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for arson wildfires and labeled as Right Wing terrorists by the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ). Newbill uses the Hammond incident to show government manipulation, societal brainwashing, Left Wing transformation against American values and let me add that Obama continues to thumb his nose at the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution.
Just as a little background to the BLM persecution of the Hammond family here is a Freedom Outpost excerpt that holds the government accountable unlike the mainstream media going out of its to sing the Obama Administration tune:
This story has been brewing for some time, but not gotten national attention, unlike the Bundy Ranch incident in 2014. The family of Dwight Hammond have come under the tyrannical eye of the federal government and now it appears that both Hammond and his son Steve are being railroaded for something that is a non-criminal act is being played out before their eyes. Word went out to citizen militias this week that the issue is a level 2 alert, meaning that militia members across the country need to be ready to deploy to Oregon to stand against federal tyrants who are seeking to wrongfully imprison two American citizens.
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.
The jury in Pendleton, Oregon found the Hammonds guilty of the arsons after a two-week trial in June 2012. They were found guilty of arson on lands which they had grazing rights under Hammond Ranches, Inc., but which the unconstitutional Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is supposed to manage. The land is claimed as federal land, in clear violation of the Constitution.
… [U.S. District Judge Michael] 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.
However, what was not communicated in all of this is that the BLM starts these kinds of fires quite often and it actually benefits the land, though many times the BLM’s fires get completely out of control. Second, the fires that were started were not arson.
Dwight’s wife, Susan, said, “They called and got permission to light the fire… We usually called the interagency fire outfit – a main dispatch – to be sure someone wasn’t in the way or that weather wouldn’t be a problem.”
According to the Bundy Family, they point out that the Hammonds were simply engaging in what is commonly known as prescribed fires.
… The BLM also performs prescribed burns and have let it get out of control many times, but never has it cost any federal agent hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and years of life in prison. The Hammonds prescribed a fire that moved to public land, they extinguished the fire themselves. The courts found that the burn increased vegetation for the following years, and had a positive impact on the land. With no authority or justification to prosecute, eleven years after the fire, federal attorneys have obtained judgment that the Hammonds are terrorists and must be punished severely for their actions.”

BLM Burns Ranches and Destroys Cattle, but Ranchers Get Charged with Terrorism
I previously reported on the Hammond family, a family of ranchers in Oregon whose two patriarchs are being targeted in a government conspiracy to remove the ranchers from the land they have been on for decades. The family has been threatened by federal agents and fear for their lives. Now, the Bureau of Land Management is doing the very thing that the Hammonds did, which is burn off some of the land, only in the case of the BLM, they have killed more than 80 head of cattle, endangered the ranchers, injured other cattle, burnt homes and other structures such as fences and power poles and threatened an entire town! Yet, it is ranchers who are considered terrorists by the feds, not the BLM.
Ammon Bundy recently spoke out on the injustices and criminal activity of the BLM against the Hammond family.
Bundy claims that there was no due process, something that is specifically supposed to be protected under the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, and he went on to state that there was a tremendous amount of corruption involved in the sentencing, the re-sentencing and even in the present situation.
Bundy claims that he has confirmed that the Sheriff’s Office has been providing information to the FBI on the Hammonds and others, including Bundy and his family. He has also confirmed that the threats that the Hammond family received came from the US Attorney’s office. In fact, Bundy said that the threats claimed that if the Hammonds didn’t break off communication with Ammon Bundy, they would be detained early and incarcerated in a “less desirable prison.”
Bundy then went on to show a video of the BLM starting prescribed fires in July, something that normally doesn’t take place at that time as the animals the ranchers care for are usually eating the very grass that the BLM set on fire. However, the video shows that the BLM didn’t just burn grass. It killed and injured cattle, burned homes and destroyed other property. The video of land burning by BLM picks up around the 3:10 mark below. … [Blog Editor: The video referenced is from above.]
Not only did they start the fires, but as the video shows, there was no one tending to the fires at various times. Not only that, but as ranchers attempted to make a fire break with water trucks and equipment, the BLM agents were building a fire around them! In fact, video captured BLM agents lighting fires within 100 feet of the corrals and those taking the video! Talk about deliberate terrorist acts!
But the BLM won’t be held accountable for their actions. No sir. It’s the … READ ENTIRETY
Former US Marine Put on Terror Watch List, Held At Gunpoint – Was it because he is helping the Oregon Ranchers?
This past week, radio show host and former US Marine Pete Santilli and his co-host Debra Jordan were arrested at gunpoint as they prepared for a trip out West to aid and cover the ongoing tyrannical saga involving the Hammonds, a ranching family that the government has targeted as terrorists and is planning to imprison the men of the family in January.
Santilli has been covering the Hammond Ranch family out in Oregon, who in a matter of weeks will be seeing the federal government engage in what amounts to double jeopardy against two men of their family. For a background on the Hammond story, click here, here and here.
Then witness video evidence of the Bureau of Land Management doing the exact same things the Hammonds are accused of without penalty.
In an exclusive interview with Freedom Outpost, Santilli told us that he was arrested last week. In the initial arrest, the policeman, who happens to be the Chief of Police for Newtown, Ohio, Thomas Synan, Jr. claimed the Santilli was impeding traffic, though that seems contradictory to how he put the two radio hosts under arrest, claiming that Santilli’s name and his vehicle was on the terror watchlist.
In a recording provided to Freedom Outpost by Santilli, you can hear Police Chief Synan claim that Santilli was impeding traffic by using his phone. Then he claims that Santilli was not wearing his seatbelt. According to Santilli, none of that was true. He had been using his electronic vapor and had merely picked up his cell phone to turn on recording once Sanyn [sic] began to pull him over. … READ THE REST (Former US Marine Put on Terror Watch List, Held At Gunpoint – Was it because he is helping the Oregon Ranchers?

The behavioral sciences scandal
One morning in August, the social science reporter for National Public Radio, a man named Shankar Vedantam, sounded a little shellshocked. You couldn’t blame him.
Over 270 researchers, working as the Reproducibility Project, had gathered 100 studies from three of the most prestigious journals in the field of social psychology. Then they set about to redo the experiments and see if they could get the same results. Mostly they used the materials and methods the original researchers had used. Direct replications are seldom attempted in the social sciences, even though the ability to repeat an experiment and get the same findings is supposed to be a cornerstone of scientific knowledge. It’s the way to separate real information from flukes and anomalies.
The researchers, Vedantam glumly told his NPR audience, “found something very disappointing. Nearly two-thirds of the experiments did not replicate, meaning that scientists repeated these studies but could not obtain the results that were found by the original research team.”
“Disappointing” is Vedantam’s word, and it was commonly heard that morning and over the following several days, as the full impact of the project’s findings began to register in the world of social science. Describing the Reproducibility Project’s report, other social psychologists, bloggers, and science writers tried out “alarming,” “shocking,” “devastating,” and “depressing.”
But in the end most of them rallied. They settled for just “surprised.” Everybody was surprised that two out of three experiments in behavioral psychology have a fair chance of being worthless.
The most surprising thing about the Reproducibility Project, however—the most alarming, shocking, devastating, and depressing thing—is that anybody at all was surprised. The warning bells about the feebleness of behavioral science have been clanging for many years.
For one thing, the “reproducibility crisis” is not unique to the social sciences, and it shouldn’t be a surprise it would touch social psychology too. The widespread failure to replicate findings has afflicted physics, chemistry, geology, and other real sciences. Ten years ago a Stanford researcher named John Ioannidis published a paper called “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.”
“For most study designs and settings,” Ioannidis wrote, “it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true.” He used medical research as an example, and since then most systematic efforts at replication in his field have borne him out. His main criticism involved the misuse of statistics: He pointed out that … READ ENTIRETY (Making It All Up: The behavioral sciences scandal; By ANDREW FERGUSON; Weekly Standard; 10/19/15)
There Is A New Executive Order You Really Need to Know About
Government agencies are preparing to collect more data on us thanks to a new executive order. They will use the data to “tweak” messaging and “nudge” the populace. They will use it to experiment on us.
Barack Obama issued an executive order Tuesday titled, Executive Order — Using Behavioral Science Insights to Better Serve the American People. Don’t be fooled by the “to better serve the American people” part. He has authorized experiments on the American public.
The first paragraph of the order says: A growing body of evidence demonstrates that behavioral science insights — research findings from fields such as behavioral economics and psychology about how people make decisions and act on them — can be used to design government policies to better serve the American people.
They say they are going to use the psychology and behavioral science to create policies that serve the American people. They are also going to develop strategies with it to message Americans on issues the government has taken on.
Government agencies will be encouraged to collect and preserve data on everyday Americans to use for their scientific research.
Barack Obama is already maintaining massive databases on every American, many of them by race.
Theuse of behavioral sciences by government agencies could lead to manipulation of the masses with government propaganda. We have already seen a number of warning signs.
The new HUD mandate, for one, is being encouraged with commercials.
The mandate is officially billed as the Affirmatively Affirming Fair Housing (AFFH) rule and it was finalized this week. It requires communities that take any federal grants to identify and eliminate deviations from mandated demographic and socioeconomic ratios and quotas.

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Prepare to be “nudged” by Obama’s new “behavioral science” squads — for your own good, of course. Under the guise of better “serving” the American people through government, Obama signed an executive order this week calling for federal agencies and departments to deploy emerging “behavioral science” techniques against the public.
Among other goals, the expansion of federal mind manipulation is supposed to help more Americans access government welfare programs, take their “recommended” vaccines, supply more information about themselves to the federal government, and accelerate the transition toward what Obama called “a low-carbon economy.” The controversial decree, signed on September 15, explicitly seeks to use “behavioral science” to prod Americans — or “nudge” them, as Obama’s “regulatory czar” Cass Sunstein put it — into making “choices” that the White House considers desirable.
Obama celebrated his plan to manipulate the minds of Americans as a means to advance a dizzying array of his controversial agendas to fundamentally transform America. “Adopting the insights of behavioral science will help bring our government into the 21st century in a wide range of ways — from …
The plan to more effectively use psychological manipulation against the public will be led by none other than John Holdren, Obama’s forced abortion-touting “science czar,” who formerly embraced global-cooling alarmism and predicted a billion deaths from a new ice age caused by human activity. Currently embroiled in multiple scandals and lawsuits surrounding his potentially unlawful use of a private e-mail account for official business and his statements blaming “global warming” for record cold, Holdren has perhaps one of the most troubling backgrounds of any top White House official. In his 1977 book Ecoscience, for instance, Holdren and his cohorts proposed drugging the food and water supply with sterilizing agents and creating a “planetary regime” with an armed force to control resources and the abortions and medical sterilization to deal with alleged overpopulation, and much more. Now he runs Obama’s White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, as well as the newly unveiled Social and Behavioral Sciences Team.
The first public information on Obama’s plan to use psychological operations to manipulate the American people came in 2013, when a document outlining the White House’s plans to create a “Behavioral Insights Team” and engage in “behavioral interventions” surfaced. The paper made clear that the purpose of manipulating the public was to “nudge” the U.S. population into thinking and behaving in ways that Obama officials deem best … READ ENTIRETY [Blog Editor Warning: My McAfee software warned of possible site problems.

Obama’s DHS Report Warns Of The Real Threat To America: Right-Wingers
ISIS is marching across huge swaths of land in the Middle East, crucifying, beheading and burning alive untold numbers of human beings, and making direct threats against the United States.
But the Department of Homeland Security is making sure the government doesn’t take its eye off the real enemy – right-wingers.
A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists.
The report cites “24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010,” or as ISIS calls it, “a slow Tuesday morning.”
Without naming names, or citing any sources, CNN declares:
Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.
While anyone committing crimes is an issue law enforcement should be concerned with, the threat from lunatic fringe “sovereign citizens” — people who reject government — pales in comparison to an organized and well-financed group of jihadi terrorists excited at the prospect of their own death in the course of killing “infidels.”

For 50 years the environmental movement has unsuccessfully argued that we should save the planet for moral reasons, that there were more important things than money. Ironically, it now seems it will be money — through the economic impact of climate change and resource constraint — that will motivate the sweeping changes necessary to avert catastrophe.
The reason is we have now reached a moment where four words — the earth is full — will define our times. This is not a philosophical statement; this is just science based in physics, chemistry and biology. There are many science-based analyses of this, but they all draw the same conclusion — that we’re living beyond our means.

During remarks that she made for the 15th Anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the launch of a new program that according to Clinton will now become the centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy. This new program is known as the Global Health Initiative, and it is being incredibly well-funded at a time when the U.S. government is drowning in debt. According to Clinton, 63 billion dollars will be spent by the U.S. to prevent pregnancies and to improve “family planning” services around the globe over the next six years. In other words, the new centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy is all about eugenics and population control.

And to make us dependent on Government and let the debt consume the free make system of capitalism here’s how they did it:
Controversial White House Office of Science and Technology Director John P. Holdren told CNS News earlier this week he would use “free market” principles to implement what he called a “massive campaign” to “de-develop the United States”.
As the “science czar”, Holdren deals with a wide range of issues, including health care and global warming.
In a book he co-authored in 1973 with Paul and Anne Ehrlich, he wrote, “A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States”.
“De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation,” they wrote in Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.
In 1995, Holdren, Paul Ehrlich and Gretchen Daily of Stanford University declared that we all needed to “face up” to “a world of zero net physical growth” that requires people consume less.
The three wrote an essay entitled, “The Meaning of Sustainability” in which they announced, “We know for certain, for example, that: No form of material growth (including population growth) other than asymptotic growth is sustainable.”
