    Ammon Bundy, a leader of the 2016 armed occupation at a federal refuge, has announced his candidacy for governor of Idaho. Bundy, in a video posted on Saturday, said he is running for governor because he is “sick and tired of all of this political garbage just like you are.” “I’m tired of our freedoms being taken from us, and I’m tired of the corruption that is rampant in our state government,” he added.

    BOISE, Idaho — Ammon Bundy has once again been arrested, along with two other men, following a Monday morning confrontation outside the Ada County Courthouse. Bundy and another man, Aaron Schmidt, were arrested Monday morning outside of the courthouse after failing to appear for their jury trials, according to a news release from the Ada County Sheriff’s Office. Both men refused to wear masks, which are required to enter the courthouse by order of the Idaho Supreme Court....
  • The Oregon Standoff: Understanding LaVoy Finicum’s Death & the Management of BLM Land

    When one talks about the Bundy Family, the first thing that springs to mind is the standoff in Nevada in 2014. However, perhaps even more important is the standoff and occupation at Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. Indeed, the two events are often conflated because Ammon Bundy is the son of Cliven Bundy, the man who stood up to the federal government over “grazing fees” on Bureau of Land Management land. The occupation was a highlight for both the militia and the sovereign citizen movement as well as proponents of states’ rights. The main argument from those occupying...

    Summary The panel affirmed the district court’s judgment dismissing with prejudice, due to violations of Brady v. Maryland, an indictment charging Cliven Bundy; two of his sons, Ryan and Ammon Bundy; and Ryan Payne with obstructing federal law enforcement officials carrying out lawful court orders. The indictment followed a well-publicized effort by the Bureau of Land Management to impound Cliven Bundy’s cattle for a twenty-year failure to pay federal grazing fees. Cliven Bundy and hundreds of armed supporters from around the United States forced federal officials to abandon the impoundment plan. Days into the defendants’ trial, the government began disclosing...

    In 2016, a group of right-wing extremists took over a wildlife refuge in Oregon. That group believed the federal government was constitutionally required to turn over most federal public land to individual states. After a long standoff of more than a month, federal law enforcement finally moved in and arrested most of the militants. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan — a former U.S. Attorney — was absolutely in favor of the government moving in and forcefully ending the standoff. She told NPR in 2017: DURKAN: If there was ever a conspiracy, this was it. WILSON: From 2009 to 2014, Jenny Durkan...

    The Bureau of Land Management, ironically going by the acronym BLM, with help from Federal agents, shut down the Bundy range land protest and killed LaVoy Finicum. A far worse group takes over a section of Seattle and NOTHING happens? Really? This raises and insurmountable number of questions.

    Interesting how so many people forget things. What about the Cliven Bundy standoff? A lot of people (mostly white) showed up to protest about the impending arrest of the Bundys and were very poorly treated. I don't remember anyone going out on the streets and rioting, do you? We left it to the courts (probably a mistake). They even ambushed and killed La Voy Finicum for no reason and we didn't even blink an eye. Now we wonder why all of this is happening and no one does anything about it? I guess no one cares about standing up for...
  • DHS Warns of “Domestic Violent Extremists” Targeting Government Officials, Law Enforcement [2014 Obama Homeland Security - Remember?]

    " The report reflects a current trend in the national law enforcement community that views the rise of domestic extremist groups, variously referred to as militia or anti-government extremists as well as sovereign citizens, as a significant threat to the safety of government officials, law enforcement and first responders. In fact, a recent survey conducted by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) at the University of Maryland found that law enforcement throughout the country identifies sovereign citizens as the top terrorist threat, greater even than the threat posed by Islamic extremists."

    Bundy, who participated in the iconic 2014 stand against federal thugs at Bundy Ranch in Nevada, believes that it is time to push back once more now that Idaho Governor Brad Little has issued his stay-at-home order. “I will be there, and I will bring as many people as I can,” Bundy said to a group of supporters on March 26, one day following the order issued by the governor. “We will form a legal defense for you. We will perform an active political defense for you. And we will also, if necessary, provide a physical defense for you, so...

    TITLE: BLM law enforcement director and Dan Love mentor, William Woody, ousted in wake of numerous allegations Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Office of Law Enforcement Services (OLES) director William Woody seems to have followed a path similar to that of his corrupt protege, Dan Love. Woody has been under investigation for numerous apparent abuses of power and mishandling of government funds since the time he retook the position in 2017. According to our source, on Thursday, June 13, Director Woody’s gun and badge were stripped from him and he was escorted out of the Department of the Interior headquarters...

    Three environmental advocacy groups Monday filed suit to block the renewal of a 10-year grazing permit for Hammond Ranches Inc., run by Dwight Hammond Jr. and son Steven Hammond. Western Watersheds Project, the Center for Biological Diversity and Wildearth Guardians filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in Pendleton against the interior secretary, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and the district manager of the land bureau’s Burns District office. The three groups argue that then-Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s renewal of the grazing permit after the Hammonds were issued pardons violated federal administrative regulations because it failed to consider the...

    More Senate skullduggery, Trump’s role in this, straight lines, and the Bundy case again Senate chicanery Last month I wrote of the skullduggery applied by both political parties in trying to pass a 680-page federal lands package in the waning moments of the last Congress. Up stepped our hero, Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) who just wanted to add two words to the legislation. Alaska and Wyoming are by statute exempt from the Antiquities Act that has been so abused by recent Presidents. Senator Lee wanted to add “and Utah” to that statute. The leadership said no to his amendment,...

    Dwight and Steven Hammond’s journey from ranchers to convicted domestic terrorists back to ranchers concluded this week when the federal government reissued permits allowing the father and son to graze cattle again on public land. A Bureau of Land Management spokesman confirmed Tuesday that the agency had reinstated grazing permits for Hammond Ranches in Harney County, Oregon, who received full pardons from President Trump in July. The Hammonds were sentenced to five-year mandatory minimum sentences in 2015 under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act for two prescribed burns that spread to public land, a sentence that stoked outrage in...

    ...Bundy naturally just disavowed the militia movement in solidarity with the migrant caravan, suggested that nationalism is actually the opposite of patriotism, and said that Trump’s America resembles nothing so much as 1930s Germany. Last week, Bundy posted a video to Facebook in which he criticized President Trump for demonizing the Central American migrants who were traveling in a caravan to seek asylum in the United States. “To group them all up like, frankly, our president has done — you know, trying to speak respectfully — but he has basically called them all criminals and said they’re not coming in...

    After less than a day of deliberation, a jury of nine men and three women found FBI special agent Joseph Astarita not guilty of lying about a high-profile police shooting during the 2016 Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation. Astarita faced two counts of making false statements and one count of obstruction of justice. The charges stemmed from a critical moment during the occupation when spokesman Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum was shot and killed by Oregon State Police after he fled a traffic stop along a remote stretch of highway in eastern Oregon.
