Bundy Ranch Trial Begins Monday for First 6 Patriots
The Liberal, anti-American, anti-constitutional media is attempting to write the narrative regarding those who go on trial Monday, by claiming they are “gunmen and followers.” We’re here to set the record straight as trials begin on Monday in the wake of the government’s key witness being reported for misconduct.
The Associate Press reports:
A federal jury in Nevada is about to be picked to decide whether a tense standoff pitting armed ranchers and rangers against federal agents over a herd of cattle in a dry river bed amounted to a peaceful expression of free speech and weapon rights, or an insurrection against the U.S. government.
Trial begins Monday in Las Vegas for six men — the first of a trio of proceedings for 17 defendants that will later include Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy, four of his adult sons and seven other men. Each is facing the equivalent of the rest of his life in prison for the confrontation nearly three years ago.
The courtroom showdown is the latest battle over Western federal land policy dating to the Sagebrush Rebellion in Nevada more than 40 years ago. A jury in Oregon in October acquitted seven people, including two Bundy brothers, of federal conspiracy and weapon charges in an occupation of a federal wildlife refuge.
The six who begin their trials on Monday are:
- Scott Drexler
- Todd Engel
- Eric Parker
- Steven Stewart
- Gregory Burleson
- Richard Lovelein
“They’re not the Bundys,” said Todd Leventhal, attorney for defendant Orville Scott Drexler. “But realistically, this is a Bundy case. The outcome of this trial affects the other two.”
Everything about this is a Bundy case because everyone facing trumped up charges in Nevada were taking a stand against federal tyranny in 2014 and seeking to protect the lives of the Bundys.
Among the charges these men face are conspiracy, firearm offenses and assault on a federal officer. The penalties for each man exceed more than 100 years in prison.
Each man is accused of bringing guns to the ranch in 2014. Fine, where is the crime in that? Are the ones saying they cannot bring guns there not the real criminals in this matter, as they are diametrically opposed to that whole “shall not be infringed” element of the Second Amendment?
From a previous discussion with political prisoner Pete Santilli, the government’s own indictment against these men bear testimony from an FBI agent that no firearms offense took place. In fact, how can there be a firearms offense when our own Constitution states quite clearly that these men were well within their rights to “keep and bear arms”? Furthermore, that same Second Amendment speaks about a well-regulated militia that is necessary to secure a free state. Nevada is far from free when you look at the tyranny imposed on it by the Bureau of Land Management.
The bogus charges these men face are almost identical to the ones that Santilli had dismissed in Oregon and the Bundy Brothers and others were acquitted of in 2016. Santilli told me that God delivered them in Oregon and that he expects Him to deliver them in Nevada with the weight of the evidence clearly in the favor of the defendants.
Keep in mind that the same government going after law-abiding patriots who stood against tyranny have tried to protect the tyrants from scrutiny in this case.
Another round of men will come up for trial in about 30 days, according to Santilli.
