Oregon Rancher Fears for His Life after Feds Threaten Him Through His Attorney
Earlier this week, I reported on the Hammond family, ranchers from Oregon who are being set up for what can only be deemed as Double Jeopardy as part of a tyrannical move by the federal government for something that occurred over a decade ago, which they normally do as ranchers. Now, the patriarch of the family, Dwight Hammond is in fear for his life and the lives of his family.
In an email sent out by Ammon Bundy from the Bundy Ranch, he said that he received a phone call on Friday, November 21 from Mr. Hammond, who communicated, “very afraid for his life and for mine as well”
Federal agents had contacted his attorney and according to the Bundy email, “They told Dwight’s attorney that if Dwight and Susie did not end all communication with Ammon Bundy, that they ‘would detain the Hammond’s early for federal prison and that they would transfer pain to the Hammond family.'”
Hammond also believes “they would bring misery to the whole family.”
Steven Hammond’s attorney also confirmed the fact that federal agents had contacted him and hinted that there might be a raid on the Hammond’s home if they did not break off communication with Ammon Bundy. Why? Is there some sort of threat that the American people are unaware of? Are they planning to burn more ranch land that is beneficial to the land just like the feds do? If there is something so dangerous about this family and their communication with the Bundy’s, why are the feds not making their move now?
These are nothing but Gestapo-style tactics to shut the Hammonds and the Bundys up.
“On Thursday November 19th, Harney County Sheriff, David Ward, informed me that federal agents indicated to him that if the Hammond’s continued to speaking out, that they may raid the Hammond’s home and detain them early for federal prison,” Ammon Bundy wrote. “I informed the Sheriff that it was his duty to make sure that did not happen. I do not have to explain how this is a violation of individual rights.”
Dwight, Steven and Susie Hammond have been thankful for Bundy getting the word out to Americans of how their family has been railroaded by the federal government. On top of that Mrs. Hammond expressed a real fear that if they continued communication with Bundy that they might get a bullet in their heads… and maybe even in Bundy’s.
None of this is far-fetched.
America watched the siege of the Bundy Ranch, the slaughter of cattle, the intimidation of hundreds of armed federal agents, the tasing of protesters who were corralled into an unconstitutional “First Amendment Area,” and even the use of snipers, as well as the implementation of a no-fly zone over the ranch. None of this was done by the Bundys. It was all the federal government.
However, as alternative media brought the story more to light, the mainstream media was forced to cover it, even to the point where we saw elected officials referring to American citizens as domestic terrorists, when it was federal agents armed to the teeth and surrounding those citizens who were the oppressors!
Following the victory at the Bundy Ranch, Ammon Bundy exhorted Americans, “Men must decide if their Rights and Freedoms are God-granted or are assigned by a Federal Government.”
