We the citizens of Nevada and the United States of America are tired of paying for unconstitutional government.
Today we learned two Burns Militia vehicles were stopped on their way to a Community Meeting and the Militia Spokesman was shot to death.
There were conflicting accounts.
MSM did not state why the vehicles were stopped in the first place.
We note the dead man did not occupy the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Building. He was known as Tarp Man, father of 11 children:
Was there actually a legal warrant or probable cause?
NY Times stated, "The 11 who have been arrested have been charged in federal court with conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation or threats, a felony."
Under our US Constitution, the opposite appears to be true, that US Citizens were denied their lawful rights for peaceful assembly and petition by a conspiracy of government force, intimidation and threats.
Fed fusion overkill, in plain parlance.
Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is 293 square miles of willful bureaucatic excess that drove people off their lands and violated their Constitutional rights over decades:

In this day and age of government growth at the expense of US Citizens, many believe the government media monopoly lies over our actual Constitution that all government employees are sworn to uphold.
It is quite clear to those actually involved in Burns.
Our public servants exceeded their constitutional authority by taking over more than ten acres of land.
They deprived US Citizens of their property and rights without due process.
They sentenced US Citizens to double Jeopardy.
They took 11 foster children with their income and labor away from the Finicum Family as retribution for his exercise of free speech rights.
They committed cruel and unusual punishment with their militarized FBI/OSP fusion posse, chase, ambush, death and false statements repeated by the monopoly media.
Oathkeepers recently alleged Special Ops Called into Oregon as ‘Fake Militiamen’ Exposed as Fed Provocateurs by Real Militia
Actual aerial footage from the FBI shows at 5:49 a roadblock ambush by the FBI and Oregon State Police on an isolated highway in the Oregon Outback.
Crucially, the video veered away 4 seconds after the FBI Oregon State Police shooting apparently began.
The video showed multiple officers behind and inside three roadblock trucks with chase vehicles.
One armed government agent was hidden in the woods.
He possibly shot Mr Finicum in the back with a rifle.
Another armed government agent was clearly in a shooting stance at the 6:00 minute mark, while the deceased had his hands in the air:
In Ruby Ridge and Waco, BATF, US Marshalls or FBI also claimed they did not shoot first, before Infrared photography and witnesses showed they did.
The FBI admitted firing at 54 year-old Mr Finicum while he was driving his truck.
That was clearly a present danger to his passengers and the roadblock.
The NYT 35 second video edited out some of the shooting with lack of continuous coverage.
The FBI stated, “On at least two occasions, Finicum reaches his right hand toward a pocket on the left inside portion of his jacket. He did have a loaded 9 mm semiautomatic handgun in that pocket.” sic
Where exactly was the visual video evidence claimed?
Is it possible witnesses in Mr Finicum's white truck saw otherwise?
Are their lives and rights also in danger?
Is it possible Mr Finicum's hands going to his abdomen in frame 6:01 were a pain reflex after being shot?
The FBI said he was shot as many as nine times.
They waited ten minutes before offering aid (when he was dead).
Most importantly, no shots were fired by Mr Finicum or his truck occupants.
Mr Finicum made no attempt to hit the roadblock with his truck.
Here is one accusatory account from the newly hired bodyguard (Hat Tip MS):

Full Story About What’s Going on In Oregon – “Militia” Take Over Malheur National Wildlife Refuge In Protest to Hammond Family Persecution…
Many people will awaken today to the news of approximately 100 to 150 armed militia taking control of a closed Wildlife Park Headquarters, and not know the full back-story – so here it is:
The short summary is: in an effort to draw attention to a ridiculous arrest of a father and son pair of Oregon Ranchers (“Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46,) who are scheduled to begin five year prison sentences (turning themselves in tomorrow January 4th 2016), three brothers from the Cliven Bundy family and approximately 100/150 (and growing) armed militia (former U.S. service members) have taken control of the closed Malheur Wildlife Refuge Headquarters in the wildlife reserve.
They are prepared to stay there indefinitely.
Here’s the long version: including history, details, links, video(s) and explanations:
HISTORY: (aa) The Harney Basin (where the Hammond ranch is established) was settled in the 1870’s. The valley was settled by multiple ranchers and was known to have run over 300,000 head of cattle. These ranchers developed a state of the art irrigated system to water the meadows, and it soon became a favorite stopping place for migrating birds on their annual trek north.
(ab) In 1908 President Theodor Roosevelt, in a political scheme, created an “Indian reservation” around the Malheur, Mud & Harney Lakes and declared it “as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds”. Later this “Indian reservation” (without Indians) became the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
(a) In 1964 the Hammonds’ purchased their ranch in the Harney Basin. The purchase included approximately 6000 acres of private property, 4 grazing rights on public land, a small ranch house and 3 water rights. The ranch is around 53 miles South of Burns, Oregon.
(a1) By the 1970’s nearly all the ranches adjacent to the Blitzen Valley were purchased by the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and added to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge covers over 187,000 acres, stretches over 45 miles long and 37 miles wide.
The expansion of the refuge grew and surrounds the Hammond’s ranch. Approached many times by the FWS, the Hammonds refused to sell. Other ranchers also choose not to sell.
(a2) During the 1970’s the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), in conjunction with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), took a different approach to get the ranchers to sell.
Ranchers were told: “grazing was detrimental to wildlife and must be reduced”; 32 out of 53 permits were revoked and many ranchers were forced to leave.
Grazing fees were raised significantly for those who were allowed to remain. Refuge personnel took over the irrigation system, claiming it as their own.
(a3) By 1980 a conflict was well on its way over water allocations on the adjacent privately owned Silvies Plain.
The FWS wanted to acquire the ranch lands on the Silvies Plain to add to their already vast holdings.
Refuge personnel intentionally diverted the water bypassing the vast meadow lands, directing the water into the rising Malheur Lakes. Within a few short years the surface area of the lakes doubled.
Thirty-one ranches on the Silvies plains were flooded.
Homes, corrals, barns and graze-land were washed away and destroyed.
The ranchers who once fought to keep the FWS from taking their land, now broke and destroyed, begged the FWS to acquire their useless ranches.
In 1989 the waters began to recede; now the once thriving privately owned Silvies plains are a part of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge claimed by the FWS.
(a4) By the 1990’s the Hammonds were one of the very few ranchers who still owned private property adjacent to the refuge.
Susie Hammond, in an effort to make sense of what was going on, began compiling facts about the refuge.
In a hidden public record she found a study done by the FWS in 1975. The study showed the “no use” policies of the FWS on the refuge were causing the wildlife to leave the refuge and move to private property.
The study showed the private property adjacent to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge produced four times more ducks and geese than the refuge.
The study also showed the migrating birds were 13 times more likely to land on private property than on the refuge.
When Susie brought this to the attention of the FWS and refuge personnel, she and her family became the subjects of a long train of abuses, corruptions and usurpations.
(b) In the early 1990’s the Hammonds filed on a livestock water source and obtained a deed for the water right from the State of Oregon.
When the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) found out the Hammonds obtained new water rights near the Malhuer Wildlife Refuge, they were agitated and became belligerent and vindictive toward the Hammonds.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service challenged the Hammonds right to the water in an Oregon State Circuit Court.
The court found the Hammonds legally obtained rights to the water in accordance to State law and therefore the use of the water belongs to the Hammonds.*
(c) In August 1994 the BLM & FWS illegally began building a fence around the Hammonds water source.
Owning the water rights, and knowing that their cattle relied on that water source daily, the Hammonds tried to stop the building of the fence.
The BLM & FWS called the Harney County Sheriff department and had Dwight Hammond (Father) arrested and charged with “disturbing and interfering with” federal officials or federal contractors (two counts, each a felony).
Dwight spent one night in the Deschutes County Jail in Bend, and a second night behind bars in Portland.
He was then hauled before a federal magistrate and released without bail.
A hearing on the charges was postponed and the federal judge never set another date.
(d) The FWS also began restricting access to upper pieces of the Hammond’s private property.
In order to get to the upper part of the Hammond’s ranch they had to go on a road that went through the Malhuer Wildlife Refuge.
The FWS began barricading the road and threatening the Hammonds if they drove through it.
The Hammonds removed the barricades and gates and continued to use their right of access.
The road was proven later to be owned by the County of Harney. This further enraged the BLM & FWS.
(e) Shortly after the road & water disputes, the BLM & FWS arbitrarily revoked the Hammond’s upper grazing permit without any given cause, court proceeding or court ruling.
As a traditional “fence out state” Oregon requires no obligation on the part of an owner to keep his or her livestock within a fence or to maintain control over the movement of the livestock.
The Hammonds still intended to use their private property for grazing.
However, they were informed a federal judge ruled, in a federal court, the federal government did not have to observe the Oregon fence out law.
“Those laws are for the people, not for them”.
(f) The Hammonds were forced to either build and maintain miles of fences or be restricted from the use of their private property.
Cutting their ranch in almost half, they could not afford to fence the land, so the cattle were removed.
(g) The Hammonds experienced many years of financial hardship due to the ranch being diminished.
The Hammonds had to sell their ranch and home in order to purchase another property that had enough grass to feed their cattle.
This property included two grazing rights on public land.
Those were also arbitrarily revoked later.
(h) The owner of the Hammond’s original ranch passed away from a heart attack and the Hammonds made a trade for the ranch back.
(i) In the early fall of 2001, Steven Hammond (Son) called the fire department, informing them that he was going to be performing a routine prescribed burn on their ranch.
Later that day he started a prescribed fire on their private property.
The fire went onto public land and burned 127 acres of grass.
The Hammonds put the fire out themselves.
There was no communication about the burn from the federal government to the Hammonds at that time.
Prescribed fires are a common method that Native Americans and ranchers have used in the area to increase the health & productivity of the land for many centuries.
(j) In 2006 a massive lightning storm started multiple fires that joined together inflaming the countryside.
To prevent the fire from destroying their winter range and possibly their home, Steven Hammond (Son) started a backfire on their private property.
The backfire was successful in putting out the lightning fires that had covered thousands of acres within a short period of time.
The backfire saved much of the range and vegetation needed to feed the cattle through the winter.
Steven’s mother, Susan Hammond said: “The backfire worked perfectly, it put out the fire, saved the range and possibly our home”.
(j1) The next day federal agents went to the Harney County Sheriff’s office and filled a police report making accusation against Dwight and Steven Hammond for starting the backfire.
A few days after the backfire a Range-Con from the Burns District BLM office asked Steven if he would meet him in town (Frenchglen) for coffee.
When leaving he was arrested by the Harney County Sheriff Dave Glerup and BLM Ranger Orr.
Sheriff Glerup then ordered him to go to the ranch and bring back his father.
Both Dwight and Steven were booked on multiple Oregon State charges.
The Harney County District Attorney reviewed the accusation, evidence and charges, determined the accusations against Dwight & Steven Hammond did not warrant prosecution and dropped all the charges.
(k) In 2011, 5 years after the police report was taken, the U.S. Attorney Office accused Dwight and Steven Hammond of completely different charges; they accused them of being “Terrorists” under the Federal Anti terrorism Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996.
This act carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum sentence of death.
Dwight & Steven’s mug shots were all over the news the next week posing them as “Arsonists”.
Susan Hammond (Wife & Mother) said: “I would walk down the street or go in a store, people I had known for years would take extreme measures to avoid me”.
(l) Shortly after the sentencing, Capital Press ran a story about the Hammonds.
A person who identified as Greg Allum posted three comments on the article, calling the ranchers “clowns” who endangered firefighters and other people in the area while burning valuable range land.
Greg Allum, a retired BLM heavy equipment operator, soon called Capital Press to complain he had not made those comments and requested they be taken down from the website.
Capital Press removed the comments.
A search of the Internet Protocol address associated with the comments revealed the origin as the BLM’s office in Denver, Colorado.
Allum said, he is friends with the Hammonds and he was alerted to the comments by neighbors who knew he wouldn’t have written them.
“I feel bad for them. They lost a lot and they’re going to lose more,” Allum said of the ranchers.
“They’re not terrorists”.
“There’s this hatred in the BLM for them, and I don’t get it,” the retired BLM employee said.
Jody Weil, deputy state director for communications at BLM’s Oregon office, indicated to reporters that if one of their agents falsified the comments, they would keep it private and not inform the public.
(m) In September 2006, Dwight & Susan Hammond’s home was raided.
The agents informed the Hammonds they were looking for evidence that would connect them to the fires.
The Hammonds later found out a boot print and a tire tracks were found near one of the many fires.
No matching boots or tires were found in the Hammonds home or on their property.
Susan Hammond (Wife) later said; ” I have never felt so violated in my life. We are ranchers not criminals”.
Steven Hammond openly maintains his testimony that he started the backfire to save the winter grass from being destroyed and the backfire ended up working so well it put out the fire altogether.
(n) During the trial proceedings, Federal Court Judge Michael Hogan did not allow time for certain testimonies and evidence into the trail which would exonerate the Hammonds.
Federal prosecuting attorney, Frank Papagni, was given full access for six days. He had ample time to use any evidence or testimony that strengthened the demonization of the Hammonds.
The Hammonds attorney was only allowed 1 day.
Many of the facts about the fires, land and why the Hammonds acted the way they did was not allowed into the proceedings and was not heard by the jury.
Example: Judge Hogan did not allow time for the jury to hear or review certified scientific findings the fires improved the health and productivity of the land.
Or, that the Hammonds had been subject to vindictive behavior by multiple federal agencies for years.
(o) Federal attorney Frank Papagni hunted down a witness who was not mentally capable to be credible.
Dusty Hammond (grandson and nephew) testified that Steven told him to start a fire.
He was 13-years-old at the time, and 24-years-old when he testified (11 years later).
At 24 Dusty had been suffering with mental problems for many years. He had estranged his family including his mother.
Judge Hogan noted that Dusty’s memories as a 13-year-old boy were not clear or credible.
However, Judge Hogan allowed the prosecution to continually use Dusty’s testimony.
When speaking to the Hammonds about this testimony, they understood Dusty was manipulated and expressed nothing but love for their troubled grandson.
(p) Judge Michael Hogan & Frank Papagni tampered with the jury many times throughout the proceedings, including during the selection process.
Hogan & Papagni only allowed people on the jury who did not understand the customs and culture of the ranchers or how land is used and cared for in the Diamond Valley.
All of the jurors had to drive back and forth to Pendleton every day. Some drove more than two hours each way.
By day 8 they were exhausted and expressed desires to be home.
On the final day, Judge Hogan kept pushing them to make a verdict.
[Several times during deliberation, Judge Hogan pushed them to make a decision.]
Judge Hogan also would not allow the jury to hear what punishment could be imposed upon an individual convicted as a terrorist under the 1996 act.
The jury, not understanding the customs and cultures of the area and influenced by the prosecutors for six straight days, very exhausted, pushed for a verdict by the judge, unaware of the ramification of convicting someone as a terrorist, gave a verdict and went home.
(q) June 22, 2012, Dwight and Steven were found guilty of starting both the 2001 and the 2006 fires by the jury.
However, the federal courts convicted them both as “Terrorists” under the 1996 Anti terrorism Act.
Judge Hogan sentenced Dwight (Father) to 3 months in prison and Steven (son) to 12 months in federal prison.
Both were also stipulated to pay $400,000 to the BLM.
Judge Hogan overruling the minimum terrorist sentence, commented if the full five years were required it would be a violation of the 8th amendment (cruel and unusual punishment).
The day of the sentencing Judge Hogan retired as a federal judge. In his honor the staff served chocolate cake in the courtroom.
(r) On January 4, 2013, Dwight and Steven reported to prison. They fulfilled their sentences, (Dwight 3 months, Steven 12 months).
Dwight was released in March 2013 and Steven, January 2014.
(s) Sometime in June 2014, Rhonda Karges, Field Manager for the BLM, and her husband Chad Karges, Refuge Manager for the Malheur Wildlife Refuge (which surrounds the Hammond ranch), along with attorney Frank Papagni exemplified further vindictive behavior by filing an appeal with the 9th District Federal Court seeking Dwight’s and Steven’s return to federal prison for 5 years.*
(t) In October 2015, the 9th District Court “re-sentenced” Dwight and Steven, requiring them to return to prison for several more years.
Steven (46) has a wife and 3 children.
Dwight (74) will leave Susan (74) to be alone after 55 years of marriage.
If he survives, he will be 79 when he is released.
(u) During the court preceding the Hammonds were forced to grant the BLM first right of refusal; if the Hammonds ever sold their ranch they would have to sell it to the BLM.
(v) Dwight and Steven are ordered to report to federal prison again on January 4th, 2016 to begin their re-sentencing.
Both their wives will have to manage the ranch for several years without them.
To date the Hammonds have paid $200,000 to the BLM, and the remainder $200,000 must be paid before the end of year (2015).
If the Hammonds cannot pay the fines to the BLM, they will be forced to sell the ranch to the BLM or face further prosecution.

Now you can watch this video where Ammon Bundy responds to why he and his brothers are involved. (This was recorded two days ago on Jan 1st):After a protest rally supporting the Hammond family yesterday, a pre-planned group, including the Bundy Brothers, left a peaceful protest at the Harney County Sheriff’s Office and went to the closed (for holiday) Malheur Wildlife Refuge, where they have seized and occupied the refuge headquarters.
Statement from Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward:
“After the peaceful rally was completed today, a group of outside militants drove to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, where they seized and occupied the refuge headquarters.
A collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution.
For the time being please stay away from that area.
More information will be provided as it becomes available. Please maintain a peaceful and united front and allow us to work through this situation.” (link)
(Via Oregon Live) […] The Bundy family of Nevada joined with hard-core militiamen Saturday to take over the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, vowing to occupy the remote federal outpost 50 miles southeast of Burns for years.
The occupation came shortly after an estimated 300 marchers — militia and local citizens both — paraded through Burns to protest the prosecution of two Harney County ranchers, Dwight Hammond Jr. and Steven Hammond, who are to report to prison on Monday.
Among the occupiers is Ammon Bundy, son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, and two of his brothers.
Militia members at the refuge claimed they had as many as 100 supporters with them.
The refuge, federal property managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was closed and unoccupied for the holiday weekend.
In phone interviews from inside the occupied building Saturday night, Ammon Bundy and his brother, Ryan Bundy, said they are not looking to hurt anyone.
But they would not rule out violence if police tried to remove them, they said.
“The facility has been the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds,” Ammon Bundy said.
“We’re planning on staying here for years, absolutely,” he added. “This is not a decision we’ve made at the last minute.” (more)
A letter dated January 1st outlines the position of the Bundy brothers, as well as the 150+ in the Militia as it relates to the Hammond family:
With great concern and love and much consideration from prayer, I come to you Harney County Sheriff of Oregon David M. Ward, rancher Steven Dwight Hammond, and rancher Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr.,
I, Cliven D. Bundy, have been involved for several weeks in the background striving to understand and comprehend your dilemmas in Harney County, Oregon.
I understand the grass that was burned on each side of the fence was grazing rights that had been created through beneficial use, one side of the fence being private property and the other side of the fence being private property rights. The fires that were set were for a good purpose and had good results.
The United States Justice Department has NO jurisdiction or authority within the State of Oregon, County of Harney over this type of ranch management.
These lands are not under U.S. treaties or commerce, they are not article 4 territories, and Congress does not have unlimited power.
These lands have been admitted into statehood and are part of the great State of Oregon and the citizens of Harney County enjoy the fullness of the protections of the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Constitution limits United States government.
It is my suggestion, Steven Hammond, that you go and check yourself into Harney County jail asking for protective custody.
It is my suggestion, Dwight Hammond, that you go and check yourself into Harney County jail asking for protective custody.
It is my suggestion, Harney County Sheriff David Ward, accept these two ranchers into your jail, notify the United States Solicitor in Washington DC that you have these two ranchers in Harney County jail, that they will remain there indefinitely under your protective custody and the protection of We the People of Harney County and We the People of the United States of America.
I suggest an Evidentiary Hearing or a Grand Jury be formed by We the People.
I feel that this action is immediately important, that it should be taken place before 10:00 am Saturday, January 2, 2016. I will hold these suggestions private until that time then I will release this letter to those having state and county jurisdiction and to the media.

Here are some interesting links about US Attorney Amanda Marshall who made the recommendation to challenge the Hammonds’ original sentences.
She resigned in May 2015 for “health reasons” amid a scandal – she is accused of stalking a subordinate, federal prosecutor Scott Kerin.
She is an Obama appointee who had no experience as a federal prosecutor when she took the job (see below*).
1) About Amanda Marshall, from the Oregonian’s list of “players” in the Hammond family case.
“Amanda Marshall: Former U.S. Attorney for Oregon.
Marshall recommended that the federal government challenge the Hammonds’ original prison sentences.
By law, the convictions come with mandatory five-year sentences, but U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan in 2012 balked at the punishment and instead sentenced Dwight Hammond to three months and Steven Hammond to one year.
Marshall called Hogan’s punishments “unlawful.”
The solicitor general authorized a rare appeal of an Oregon judge’s order.
The appeals court sided with the prosecution, and the Hammonds returned to federal court last year to face a second sentencing.
At that hearing, U.S. Chief District Judge Ann Aiken ordered the pair to finish five-year terms.”
Oregon’s top federal prosecutor traveled from commune to the corner office
2) The Scandal:
Oregon U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall resigns amid internal review, cites health issues
Federal Prosecutor Allegedly Stalked By U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall Was Under Armed Protection – Scott Kerin reportedly had a contract taken out on his life by a Mexican drug cartel.
U.S. Justice Department looking into U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall’s relationship with employee
“This is a crucial time in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Oregon, which investigates and prosecutes federal crimes.
The office is leading a sweeping influence-peddling investigation of former Gov. John Kitzhaber and his companion, Cylvia Hayes.
Marshall was the surprise choice to replace interim U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton in 2010.
She had no experience as a federal prosecutor.*
Rather, she was plucked from a child advocacy legal job inside the Oregon Department of Justice.
Before that, she served as a deputy district attorney in Coos County.
Kerin is married to a fellow-federal prosecutor in the Portland office.
Marshall is married to Ladd Wiles, who last May was elected Circuit Court judge in Yamhill County.”
NOTE: In the above story, her attorney, Charese Rohny, misleads the Oregonian by saying that the victim Kerin was the subject of an OIG investigation, which was untrue, as it was Marshall who OIG was investigating.
