Patriots Punished for Going to Bundy Ranch
by Shari Dovale
Jon Ritzheimer and Ryan Payne are friends from way back. They recently met up after months of not seeing each other, and had a great time. With their ladies along side, they enjoyed everything from lunch to Go-Carts.
Then they went to the Bundy Ranch.
Now they are being punished by the Oregon Courts for not knowing they were not allowed to visit with this American family. Judge Anna Brown has decided, after the fact, that these men were not going to get away with supporting the Bundy family.
Both Ritzheimer and Payne are considered co-defendants on the Malheur Protest Trial in Oregon. They each decided to accept plea agreements in that case and are scheduled to begin their sentences soon.
Jon Ritzheimer accepted a plea agreement in the Malheur Protest trial and was scheduled to begin his incarceration in several weeks. Instead, he will be headed to prison early, on January 12th.
Ryan Payne is currently a defendant alongside Cliven Bundy and his two sons, Ammon and Ryan, in the Bunkerville Standoff trial in Las Vegas. Judge Gloria Navarro recently declared a mistrial in that case and further rulings are expected in the coming days.
Meanwhile, due to the gross misconduct of the prosecutors office, the defendants in Las Vegas have been released under pretrial conditions, with the exception of Cliven Bundy. Payne received additional conditions from Judge Anna Brown in Oregon due to his status in her court. Brown has now ordered him to be placed under house arrest.
Photos from their outing were published on Facebook. This was all it took for Judge Anna Brown to get worked up and call in her proverbial marker.
It was first said that they were not supposed to see each other, as co defendants. However, that was proven to be untrue by the document shown here. The ban for defendants to speak to each other was LIFTED!
It was actually all about them going to the Bundy Ranch. The government does not want anyone supporting Cliven Bundy, or anyone that takes a stand for citizens rights.
These are not the first stories being told about retaliation for supporting citizen rights. The Federal government has cracked down on Liberty-loving patriots around the country just because they can!
If you are an active militia member, if you are vocal about states rights, if you profess your support of the Constitution or call yourselves Patriots, then you are probably being looked at and may be targeted.
Greg Whalen is a disabled combat veteran who spends his days helping other vets and advocating for the US Constitution.
Whalen attended the Million Vet March on Washington DC during the 2013 government shutdown and was photographed removing barricades. Additionally, he went to Bunkerville when he heard about the standoff and removed the “First Amendment Area” sign.
Both of these events were listed on paperwork he saw when he was stopped from entering Nellis AFB last spring. He was roughed up, stripped searched, called a domestic terrorist and told not to come back to the base. He has yet to regain his base privileges.
Another vet named John was stripped of his VA benefits after being in Bunkerville, with the VA claiming he refused a mental health evaluation. With these documents in hand, he could not find anyone at the Veterans Administration who knew anything about it, yet he still does not have his disability benefits.
There are numerous stories of patriots being placed on the “No Fly” list, or at least held for several hours before being allowed to travel.
This is government terrorism against it’s citizens! They are punishing people for supporting anyone that stands up for their God-given, Constitutionally-protected rights. If you don’t fall in line with the mandated rhetoric, then the NDAA will become your worst enemy.
Under Section 1021, however, anyone who has committed a “belligerent act,” can be detained indefinitely, without charges or trial, as a “suspected terrorist.” This is a direct violation of the U.S. Constitution and our Bill or Rights. In The Federalist No. 84, Alexander Hamilton stressed the importance of the writ of habeas corpus to protect against “the favorite and most formidable instruments of tyranny.”
