Michele Fiore Testifies for Political Prisoners

by Shari Dovale

Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore took the stand in the Malheur Protest Trial in Portland today.

As a member of the Coalition of Western States (C.O.W.S.) she explained that their organization has a couple of divisions. Part of the Legislative division, she said they “help promote liberties against a tyrannical government.” They also work on restoring property rights for individuals.

Fiore testified about going to Bunkerville in 2014. When many of her constituents called her complaining of the overreaching Bureau of Land Management, she said she did not believe them. She went there, she testified, “Like a Mom whose children were complaining of a monster under the bed.” When she got there, she realized there really was a Big monster!

Fiore also told of visiting the Malheur Refuge in January 2016. First, she verified through Oregon officials that no laws were broken. This prompted the prosecution and Judge Anna Brown to admonish this lawmaker to stop making statements interpreting the law. Judge Brown explained that only she, as the judge, can explain the law to the jurors. Fiore was told not to express her ‘opinion’ on whether laws were broken.

Fiore did make a powerful statement during one portion of her testimony when she stated that LaVoy Finicum was murdered. This threw the prosecutors and the judge into fits, where Fiore was, again, admonished by the judge and told not to characterize Finicum’s death in that manner.

Fiore, a popular legislator, became even more so as she waved to the jury while walked out of the courtroom.

Next on the stand was Brandon Rapolla, one of the founders of the Pacific Patriots Network (PPN). Rapolla was called in to dispute the prosecutions claims of Ammon’s group being heavily armed and dangerous, based mostly on the photograph shown here.

Rapolla said that this was a photo of the PPN arriving to deliver “Articles of Resolution” to Ammon. Threats had been made against the founders of the PPN, so as the tactical officer, he made the decision to have an armed security detail available.

No member of the ‘Citizens For Constitutional Freedom’ were present, or a part of the group pictured. This photograph was entered into evidence by the prosecution in the Malheur Protest Trial.

Thursday should bring several more witnesses to the stand for the defense, as well as cross examination of Ammon Bundy by the prosecution.

  1. US Constitution, Article 3, Section 1: “… The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold thier Offices during good Behaviour,…”

    Section 2: “…
    In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the other cases BEFORE MENTIONED, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make.

    THE TRIAL OF ALL CRIMES, except in cases of impeachment, SHALL BE BY JURY; and such trial shall be held in the state where the said crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any state, the trial shall be at such place or places as the Congress may by law have directed.”

    Here in the USA, under our legitimate government it is the jury who decides if a law is good or bad. If they decide that the law being used is bad, then that ends it for the “case”.

    Just like it is a JURY TRIAL that a judge being prosecuted for NOT using good behavior while in office is used to determine if the judge committed the crime of not using good behavior, and in so doing broke the Oath they are lawfully bound to keep – a felony and the crime of Perjury.

    The requirement for all Federal and State Civil officers to give their solemn and binding Oath is established in Article VI, Section 1, Clause 4.

    It is important to all to remember that here in OUR nation, under OUR legitimate government, the US Constitution IS the supreme LAW of this land that all laws MUST be in Pursuance thereof in order to be lawful and binding on the American people. I have noticed that many involved in “law” forget that the US Constitution is LAW, and by its requirements shapes all laws/codes/statutes/regulations/etc that is binding on the American people – not judges, not legislators, not etc .. the US Constitution does. That IS in writing.

    US Constitution, Article VI, Clause 2: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”

    28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    Sherar v. Cullen, 481 F. 946: “There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of Constitutional rights.”

    U.S. Supreme Court in Miranda v. Arizona, 380 U.S. 436 (1966): “Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule-making or legislation which would abrogate them.”

    Gross v. State of Illinois, 312 F 2d 257; (1963): “State Judges, as well as federal, have the responsibility to respect and protect persons from violations of federal constitutional rights.”

    Olmstead v U.S., 277 US 348, 485; 48 S. Ct. 564, 575; 72 LEd 944 U.S. versus Verdrigo-Urquidez, 110 S. Ct. 1056, 1060-61 (1990); South v.Maryland/Bowers v. DeVito: “Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen. In a Government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Crime is contagious. If government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for the law it invites every man to become a law unto himself and against that pernicious doctrine, this court should resolutely set its face.”

    one should understand that Domestic enemies pursue legislation, programs against the powers of the US Constitution. They work on destroying and weakening the Rights of the People guaranteed by the Constitution. Plus they create laws, amendments, bills, etc that goes against the restraint on the three branches of our government by the Constitution. They are also those who support those in action, or by inaction; vote, voice, money, etc who are going against or trying to weaken the US Constitution and the Peoples written guarantee of the protection of those Rights.

  2. Citizens need to stand up on their hind legs on this !! This has all been crooked and Illegal !! The laws that have been broken here have all been done by the Federal Government and the State Government and the Governments of a few Oregon Counties !! We the People Pay these fake Judges and Governors and Sheriffs out of our own pockets . They are all our EMPLOYEES !!! They have committed “BREACH OF CONTRACT” at the very least !! They have did just the opposite of what the laws ALL people are supposed to go by. If the crooked Judges in this case were all sued by 10,000 honest tax paying citizens for at least breach of contract, if not TREASON and every thing else thinkable, this crap would stop ! How can so many HONEST citizens just sit around after a person was ASSASSINATED ,and not demand justice by their KILLERS ??? It doesn’t matter right or wrong on the Wildlife refuge ! The DEATH was a HIT by the FEDS AND THE STATE , AT the very least !!! They had already shot at the protesters with out any valid reason !! The Bundy’s and their fellow protesters, as it has been most definitely shown, never pointed a weapon at anyone or threatened anyone at all. So what the hell is going on here people ????????? There are people all over America killing, looting, rioting , calling for the death of all “whites”, and part of the people committing this crap are celebrities and famous rich people.. Nothing much is being done about all of that !! Where were the Politicians that should have been on TV calling this crap Wrong. Why didn’t Obama and Sharpton say this was an assassination of an honest Man ?? Why are the Bundy’s and the Hammond’s and the rest of them still being fraudulently held behind bars ???

  3. This is all wrong. First their is eight judges normally nine in america that are supposed to determine the law. And guess what they did determine the law. It was argued weighed and ruled. And that order in law is broken. Those impersonators in law are imposters, they are unschooled in law. They are confused. They think they are law enforcement when all they are is Code enforcement within Color of Law. Not one of them have the right to Judge Law. The Bundys were just doing some law enforcement as any good american has the right and duty to do. A good old fashioned american law enforcement is in order to set those imposters to the curb and change the locks on we the owners of that house quartered by soldiers.

  4. Only the judge can explain the laws to the jurors, so Michelle, in the legislation (writers of the laws) is wrong. Isn’t that kind of like the preacher telling God only he can interpret the Bible and that God doesn’t understand it?

  5. This is a sham trial devoid of any real chance for justice. It is simply a kangaroo court with an evil oath breaking judge who is out to destroy the defendants using any means fair or unfair. In my book a case should be brought against this judge for gross misconduct and violations of civil rights. I want to know what steps need to be taken to haul Anna Brown into a jail cell for breaking the law she is supposed to uphold. She should be on trial for what she has already done. I would also like to know if this court is admiralty or civil?

  6. First, she verified through Oregon officials that no laws were broken.
    That is not an opinion, nor is it interpreting law. It is OFFICIAL ENTITIES in Oregon that told her this. So what is the bench’s problem?

  7. First, she verified through Oregon officials that no laws were broken. This prompted the prosecution and Judge Anna Brown to admonish this lawmaker to stop making statements interpreting the law. Judge Brown explained that only she, as the judge, can explain the law to the jurors. Fiore was told not to express her ‘opinion’ on whether laws were broken. This is really an atrocity and Judge Brown is as corrupt as they come, however, she isn’t alone in this.

    • The judge was wrong. Fiore can state what she was told. Y Oregon officials. Law inforcement have the authority to determine if any laws were broken, triggering their decision to arrest or not to arrest. This is the executive role in enforcing the law. Their statements to her goes to her state of mind and is admissible.

      The role of the judge in a jury trial is to state not explain the law to the judge and it is the jury’s role to determine if any laws were broken. This judge is acting like a dictator above the rule of law which also governs her.
