The indictment charges the four with 16 felonies: one count of conspiring to commit an offense against the United States, one count of conspiring to impede or injure a federal officer, four counts of carrying a firearm in a crime of violence, two counts of assault on a federal officer, two counts of threatening a federal law enforcement officer, three counts of obstructing justice, two counts of interfering with interstate commerce by extortion and one count of interstate travel in aid of extortion.

Outpost of Freedom

February 2, 2016


This is the first of a series of articles about the events surrounding the investiture of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge administration buildings by a group headed by Ammon Bundy, son of Cliven and Carol Bundy. The Bundys are well known for the events in Nevada that played out in April 2014. In that incident, the Bundys, along with hundreds of other patriotic Americans, went beyond “civil disobedience” and entered the realm of “civil defiance”, defying, with arms, the intrusion of the Bureau of Land Management into the long time operation of the cattle part of the Bundy ranch operation – denying rights that had existed for years and denying them their pursuit of the family business.

Ammon Bundy, 6 others acquitted in Oregon standoff trial

By Steve Almasy, CNN

Updated 1:41 AM ET, Fri October 28, 2016


(CNN)Seven people who were among the armed occupiers of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon earlier this year were acquitted Thursday of charges related to the 41-day standoff.


Ammon Bundy; his brother, Ryan Bundy; and three other people were found not guilty of firearms charges and conspiracy to impede federal workers. Two others who were acquitted were charged only with conspiracy. The federal jury couldn't reach a verdict on a theft charge against Ryan Bundy.


There was a bit of drama in the courtroom after the decision, CNN affiliate KOIN reported. Ammon Bundy's attorney, Marcus Mumford, was taken down by US Marshals who reportedly used a stun gun on him after the lawyer argued with the judge that his client should be set free. Mumford spent a brief time in custody, KOIN reported.

Bundys Go Free, But Their Lawyer Is Tazed and Arrested

October 29, 2016


Remember the Oregon Wildlife Refuge Standoff and the shooting of LaVoy Finicum? Well the verdict was just released and the Bundy brothers, Jeff Banta, Shawna Cox, David Fry, Neil Wampler, and Kenneth Medenbach were found not guilty on all charges by the jury. The government was stunned and did not like the jury’s verdict, so why not take it out on their attorney. When their lawyer asked for his client’s immediate release he was tasered and arrested by federal agents. Oh yes, the federal government is now charging the attorney with failure to comply with a lawful order and disturbance.

The unsatisfying outcome to the Malheur refuge occupation: Editorial

By The Oregonian Editorial Board updated October 28, 2016 at 1:24 PM

The unlawful spectacle of the armed takeover and 41-day occupation of a federal facility in Harney County this year was, as if to test credulity, outdone when all defendants were declared not to be guilty.


The verdict was unequivocal, however, and in answer to the federal government's leading charge of conspiracy. The prosecution's failure to prove the occupiers intended to impede federal workers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge meant the jury, instructed by the judge to narrowly insist on proof that substantiated the charge, had no choice but to say: not guilty.


The man we had called the only true patriot in the protracted mess – Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward – was understated late Thursday in saying he stood by the judicial system as sound and having done its job. We agree. But the verdict is beyond unsatisfying: It signals to any knucklehead in America that trespassing on government property, and trashing publicly owned facilities and equipment, is an action that can be beat.

Sympathizers of Ammon and Ryan Bundy and associates, meanwhile, were busy conflating an armed, threatening presence with American-as-apple-pie civil disobedience. Scissors-32x32.png

Breaking! Bundys Released!


In another stunning turn of events, All of the tier three defendants in the Bundy Ranch trials, including Cliven and Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne have all been given pre-trial release!

So much for a “threat to society”! 


In a few video reports on the court’s ruling on Tuesday, Brad Thornton issued the news and answered questions.

Be sure to spread the information far and wide.

These releases come on the heels of the pre-trial release of Ryan Bundy who issued an amazing opening statement in court that every red-blooded American should read and share with their family and friends!

May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ be praised!


However, in a move that shocked many in the courtroom, he said no and wants to stay in prison.   :snip:
