Idaho State Police Turn Into Thugs For Gov. Chicken Little

Idaho State Police Turn Gestapo For Gov. Chicken Little

by Shari Dovale

The Hardware Brewing Company employees in Kendrick, Idaho are trying to provide for their families, as is every little business in Idaho, and around the country.

Governor Brad Little has taken this power grab, called it an emergency, and went way too far.

Putting the small businesses out of business is the order of the day for Little, and he is using his thugs at the Idaho State Police to “get’er done!”

Kendrick is a small community in Latah County, in the middle of Idaho. It has a total population of 360.

Idaho is currently using the Leftist common core counting methods for adding up Covid 19(84) cases by including probable or presumed cases in their numbers.

Even so, the number of cases in the entire state (as of May 21st) is 2,534. Yes, this includes PROBABLE or PRESUMED cases, as well. There have been 77 deaths reported, and yes, this would include probable or presumed cases, as per the CDC guidelines of misreporting the facts.

Additionally, Latah County has reported only 12 cases with no deaths. Kendrick has reported ZERO cases!

Yet, Governor Brad (The Sky is Falling) Little is so upset that his Lt. Governor, Janice McGeachin, visited this little out-of-the-way spot to support them in their endeavors, that he has turned his wrath in their direction and is using them as an example for his oppressive and dictatorial powers. (Can everyone say “Retaliation”?)

And who is playing the Gestapo for his orders? The Idaho State Police!

We previously reported that the ISP has tried to weasel their way out of responsibility by claiming they are “Just the Messengers”. However, the Only-Following-Orders defense did not work at Nuremberg, and is not going to work here.

But the ISP will just not leave it alone. They came back yesterday and this was reported concerning the confrontation:

Alert Notice to all Idaho Citizens: Hardware Brewing Co. with Hardware Frank

Nearly 12-15 Idaho state troopers came yesterday (Thursday, May 21st) to our pub.

The reason given to us was an allegation that a man drank beer at our Pub on May 9th and crashed his motor cycle afterwards between Julietta, Idaho and Lewiston, Idaho on HWY 3.

8 ISP inside our building and many more outside.

ISP would not allow my parents to call each other, speak to each other or contact our lawyer, or be left alone/unattended, they were monitored at all times.

They removed our staff from the premises and would not allow parents to speak with their lawyer.

ISP had vests and tactical gear, huge show of force. Mom and dad are in the 60’s.

Please note warrant only allows for data to be taken from May 9th. But they took the entire camera/video server, 30 plus days. Also, all data from our POS (point of sale) system.

My belief is that ISP will try to frame us and use this as the reason to pull our license and levy fines.

Question, does anyone know the judge who signed the warrant?

Magistrate Megan E. Marshall
Latah County District Court
Court Clerk Number: 208-883-2255 ext. 4
Clerk email:

Brad Little has gone into Full Liberal “I-Believe-in-Big-Government” mode. These good folks at the Hardware Brewing Company are just trying to survive, and Brad Little wants to crush them!

A GoFundMe page has been set up for them. They may need the help towards legal fees to fight this overreach by the state. Please visit and donate, if you can:

Hardware Brewing Company’s Freedom to Operate

This has to do with politicians destroying the livelihood of hardworking Americans by overstepping their reach.

After 6 weeks of closure and the order to stay closed for up to another month, the Lohmans opened their pub. The governor, through the force of the Idaho State Police, is threatening to take their licenses.

Doug and Christine paid for their licenses, are not breaking laws, yet cannot use them.  The Lohmans cashed in their retirement in order to keep the property and business. 

They are in their 60’s and have lost their life savings and are fighting to not lose their business as well.

Go fund me will help with legal defense, and recover some of their retirement savings.

23 Comments on Idaho State Police Turn Gestapo For Gov. Chicken Little

  1. I am a bit disappointed in this article if I may be honest but then again, I am reading it a good distance from the incident and your help is appreciated where I may be falling short. I know sensationalism sells because the hope is that it wakes enough people up soon enough we can still restore liberty before it is gone I get that but I decided to look into this a bit more because I have friends in law enforcement that I can contact with questions and so I did. So, according to ISP, your region only has 8 officers including commander and captain. If this be true, there wasn’t 10-15. Also according to the ISP they were not there in riot gear, they were there in windbreakers. Thirdly, as much as I have an extreme disdain for the Governor and would like to see him ejected asap, the ISP was not there to shut the bar down, they were there for two reasons, one to “educate” by giving the owner the prepared order and to investigate a serious injury where someone had allegedly left that bar. All these things they claim are business as usual as if the order never existed and they were not given super powers to go beyond what they normally would have. In addition, according to the ISP, there has never been an order of request by the governor to have the ISP enforce the order. Before anyone goes off assuming I went off to the dark side, I would like to clarify that I have always been about trying to find the truth for what it is. I understand fully the times we are in and I am pretty concerned like you guys are but lets not make it worse that it is by not doing our due diligence. If I am wrong in anything I said here, it wasn’t to be antagonistic or out of disrespect, it is only to question the legitimacy of all that is happening so we are all armed with good info and since there was no mention of the ISP side of the issue, I thought I would add that perspective. Also, I was told to ask you to challenge the ISP by providing evidence of them citing or calling for disbursement or doing anything out of what they would normally do so they can look into the claim. Are orders unlawful, yes, to me very much so but why would this bar need to raise funds for legal help when it doesn’t appear the order was even enforced? If the funds however are needed for defense against the injured driver, that as I am sure you will agree is an entirely different matter that was not stated in much detail in this article. Again, if there is ino I am missing, please let me know because I am super interested in following this particular case.

    • The ISP is a bureaucratic
      agency, meaning it is under full control of the Governor’s office. The
      director is appointed by the governor and the director answers only to
      the governor. Call the Governor. The buck lands on his desk.

  2. They opened on May 2. Sheriff Deputy and ISP stopped by and spoke to owners prior to opening hour. No action taken by any enforcement agency until May 21st when a warrant was served. Not because they were open but due to a motorcycle crash on May 9th (ISPblogspot).
    Sounds like ISP is investigating a case of “over-service”. The writer cites the name of the Judge but not a copy of the warrant? Any pictures of anything that day? ISP in tac gear? No employees called anyone or filmed?
    As much as I disagree with many of the actions taken by the Governor, it was the legislature who packed their bags and ran. Leaving the fox to guard the henhouse.

  3. A true reflection of courage and integrity is not how a man wields power over another once given authority but rather the restraint with which it is judiciously employed.

    This is why education and civics are so vital. If you are not aware of your constitutional rights and engaged to fight the forces aligned against it then you are easy pickings for the hypnotic sway of the bleating herd.

    If you don’t know where we came from you sure don’t have a clue, other than an emotional filled opinion which everyone can muster, as to where we’re going.
    You’ve gotta stand for something or you’re going to fall for anything.

  4. Please tell me in the oath where it says you swore an oath to violated people’s god given inalienable rights.

  5. Treachery; Trump lifted up LE everywhere and we did too, but now this. 2nd Amendment was for this reason: TYRANNICAL GOVT!!! OUR RIGHTS COME FROM OUR CREATOR AND NOT THE GOVERNOR- HE’S SUPPOSED TO CARE FOR US!!!

  6. I thought Idaho was better than Washington State. Guess they have the Democrat Cancer as well.

    • We are. Brad is an anomaly. And he comes from a prominent ranching family. What a waste. His daddy Dave coddled his little butt when he should have been warming it.

    • Its the FEMALES all in positions of power,some radical homersexuals,all apparently nanny nazis

  7. There should be a day of reckoning for all those underlings who destroyed people’s livelihoods while following illegal orders.

  8. It seems to me that it would be beneficial to the citizens if those officers feel like their homes and lives are threatened. Citizens band together and fight back. Small towns in Mexico did this and it fixed the problem. If you don’t suppress this police action now, then prepare to live on your knees. I am a huge supporter of the police, but this action is not police work but a state sanctioned armed gang and should be dealt with accordingly.

    • Too many of the police in Idaho are not native-born Idahoans and lack honor. This is especially true in the upper echelons of the State Police.

  9. We should have known that Little was a liberal just like his buddy ,The Uber Liberal Otter.
    The Idaho GOP needs to clean house, before we are taxed out of existence.

  10. Remember who these cops are who claim to be “just following orders”. Remember, no cop has any responsibility to follow an unlawful order from anyone.

  11. When people go around praising the police and telling us how brave they are and what heros they are forget about situations like this one. This is a whole police organization, not just a rogue cop.

    • Idaho and every other left run state should take stock of just what they’re doing now, extrapolate it to the national level and if that doesn’t scare people into voting for DJT, nothing will.

      • Brad Little is a Republican and supposedly follows Trump’s policies, but this incident has outed him as a RINO. I have known Brad since he was about 8, but paid no attention to him until my younger sister developed a big crush on him. Then I paid some attention to him and was not pleased with what I saw. Brad was a wuss then and is still that to this day.. Chicken Little is a good name for him. Be sure to vote him out in his next primary. I will.

    • not if the governor has all the voting rigged already and you can bet he has. So it will depend on if he gets caught cheating or not. They cheated the votes in Alabama and they will forge, steal, lie or kill to make sure Trump doesn’t win..
