Bundy Judge Composting the Constitution
By Shari Dovale
The pretrial release hearing for Ammon and Ryan Bundy was held Monday, July 18th in Portland. U.S. District Judge Robert E. Jones ruled Tuesday that they must remain in custody pending trial.
The judge claimed that he could not ensure that the Bundy brothers would return to court, therefore they need to stay locked up.
The prosecution put on a farce of a hearing, claiming, first of all, that Ryan Bundy attempted to escape his jail cell back in April. It was so apparent to the LEO’s that they did not bother to charge him with attempted escape, though their ‘evidence’ seems enough to convince them.
There is no way they are going to get me, and a large part of this country’s citizens, to believe that, if they had proof of a Bundy jail break attempt, they would not be pushing for the maximum punishments allowed, if not more. After all, these are right-wing extremist terrorists, right?
It was made obvious that the intent behind their actions was to have a peaceful political protest. They took control of the Malheur Refuge property under an “adverse possession” claim. Basically, they don’t believe the federal government has constitutional control of the Refuge land. Adverse possession is the occupation of land to which another person has title with the intention of possessing as one’s own. In layman’s terms, they were squatting on the land.
If anyone believes that this is not commonplace in the US, they should google it. It happens more often than one might think. Generally, the squatters are given rights in which the property owners must fight through the court system. It is not a given that the squatters will be removed.
The fact that the Bundy’s were never, officially, asked to leave the Refuge should make clear that the law understood this. Even Harney County Sheriff David Ward stated that the only laws that he thought may have been broken was ‘possibly’ trespassing.
Federal prosecutors were forced to admit that the FBI didn’t formally order the occupiers to leave the refuge.
The question begs to be asked: Name the federal employees that actually attempted to go back to work after January 2nd. Were there any? Or were they told to stay at home by their superiors? Who actually stopped them?
“My ruling is there was no lawful adverse possession available to them,” Judge Jones said. “They may very well have thought they were within the law. They weren’t.”
This sounds like the “Hillary Defense.” They thought they were within the law, but they weren’t. So there was no intent. It used to be that ignorance of the law was no excuse, however, the FBI director, James Comey, altered that premise forever, when he claimed that Hillary had no intent, therefore it was okay to not prosecute.
Jones also had a chance to shred the First amendment with Shawna Cox, earlier Monday. Though he allowed her a small amount of freedom from the restrictions she had been placed under during her release, he did still oppress her Freedom of Speech rights.
Stating that Cox’s beliefs were “screwball views,” “legal garbage” and “horribly distorted view of the law and procedures,” Jones required Cox to agree to suspend her first amendment rights by not repeating her beliefs to anyone, especially the jury.
I wonder if she will be allowed to discuss Jury Nullification, as it is allowed by law? Yet, so many legal-beagles attempting to wrongly convict make every effort to pretend that does not exist.
These procedures just show the next chapter of beating down the citizens. The people have no rights under the NEW United Nations of America.
If you are not part of the government elite, like Hillary, then you have no rights. You have no Freedom of Speech to express your views. You have none of the protections that the government class enjoys. You have the few bones that the Feds are willing to throw your way.
That may be their vision, but remember this…
