Injustice makes this commentator angry and it should make every American hope for a better ending to the story of the Hammonds. Maybe government agents, employees, and officials should ask themselves these questions and evaluate what could be interpreted as legal and/or illegal procedures before they act in these uncertain times. Recklessly prosecuting the Hammonds as terrorists under the Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, (AEDPA) to obtain their mineral rights. If true, it puts the government on the wrong side of benevolent or even on the wrong side of lucid.
Considering that the Hammonds signed over LAND rights to pay the heavy fines under duress, is proof in the pudding? If the people perceive the courts as confiscating property through environmental movement and racketeering, not giving consideration to people’s rights and safety, assuredly this will destroy confidence in the rule of law. This behavior by the Federal Courts could be endangering peoples peace and safety not to mention, due-process and freedom?
Destroying ranchers with a cloak of fighting terrorist using the “Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996” rivals the Irish Punitive Laws that the English used against Irish Catholics! Ranchers have proven that they have been practicing good stewardship of the land for almost two hundred years in this country. It could be easily perceived that politicians and bureaucrats at the highest levels in Government are participating in open and notorious corruption and racketeering for personal gain through the Federal Court system. I think it’s time for everyone concerned to stop, step back and realize what is taking place and ask themselves if they are Americans or Environmentalist or just greedy criminals and land grabbers abusing governmental powers.
We all know about corporate media controlling 6 monopolistic, cartel-corporates are stall-feeding us with fake stories. Many still think mainstream news is the official word but in reality, it is fraudulently giving the illusion of legitimacy. To put it bluntly, the fake corporate mainstream news is deceiving people hook-line-and-sinker and totally mesmerizing the uninformed masses until you can see suds coming out of their ears. Unfortunately, now even the internet alternative media is being muzzled and limited and the Hammond story is being squashed. Net-Neutrality could be nothing more than internet censorship using search algorithms, shadow banding, and YouTube seems to be outright deleting the political undesirables from the alternative media on a national level. A conspiratorial cover-up pushing political correctness and/or cultural communism using Google, (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter) and others who employ young people (with suds in their ears) violating the public’s First Amendment rights. I feel like screaming in a dry, dusty voice, “NEWs! Who has NEWS, Please give me News!” It is like a scene out of “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” when the Taylor (Corrupt Business Man) known as the Taylor Machine, stops the alternative media (Boys Stuff newspaper) who are a bunch of kids trying to get out the story. To make a long story short the alternative media is not as effective as it once was just a short time ago.
Vladimir Lenin and Nikita Khrushchev once said, “You will sell us the rope with which we will hang you.” Who would have thought that the rope might be uranium for nuclear bombs located in southwestern Oregon and on the Hammond’s ranch? Conspiracy? Maybe. Rosatom, the Russian nuclear energy agency acquired that same URANIUM through a corporate shell game receiving approval from Hillary’s State Department and 8 other top government agencies? Jeff Sessions seems to be more concerned about pot smokers than establishing stability/credibility back in the Federal judicial system. Hinting this story is much bigger than most people think, considering who might be involved and the amount of money involved; BIG STORY but don’t say anything, mums the word!
Historically, rebellions start over States rights and land use issues, force and COINTELPRO tactics will probably only kick the can down the road and cause more injustice to exasperate the situation. In the interest of Justice may-be a Federal Grand Jury — no… poo-poo or special prosecutors. Only a Federal Grand Jury has the subpoena power to look into corporate foundations involved in racketeering and corruption with a “big stick” because this type of corruption is endangering us all!
The courts should never be used for political aspirations, Barry Soetoro rainbow coalition type agenda’s left us in a brain-damaged liberal utopian mess at present the new administration is turning a blind eye and doing nothing but lip service. Cher, in the movie, Moonstruck should slap us all and yell “snap out of it!” We should implement safeguards against convicting ranchers for back burning or minor infraction and treating them as criminals or arsonists under the Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996. We might be able to lessen the damage enough to prevent sinking the whole Republic into a filthy, stinky, lawless chaotic swamp; if we “Snap out of it!”. Pardon the Hammonds!

A Committee of Safety was probably one of the last things on LaVoy Finicum’s mind and the mission of his trip to John Day, Oregon. If you scroll down past the Judge Jeanine video you will find the full movie of “American Standoff.”
The Justice Department’s scrutiny of an Obama-era deal that gave Russia partial control of the U.S. uranium supply has opened the door to the possibility of a new investigation – egged on by the White House.
At the end of their terms presidents typically grant pardons or clemency to a host of federal inmates whose cases are too politically controversial for all but a lame duck to handle.It’s time that President Obama grant Dwight and Steven Hammond clemency and allow them to return to their Orego
