The ambush/murder of Robert LaVoy Finicum on January 26, 2016 by the FBI and their co-conspirators is a perfect example of the in-depth, ingrained and debilitating acts of corruption that has been and continues to be perpetuated against the law-abiding American citizen.
While the government literally controls mainstream news media and all of their affiliates, which therefore have a very strong influence and control on the belief system of the masses.
Regardless of the truth of the matter, whoever gets the message out first is believed to be the most truthful and factual. Well, we have seen for ourselves that this is not always the case, but any news retractions gather little attention, especially when they are published at a much later date.
Thank the Lord for the Internet, secondary news media, Internet Radio and Open Air Radio. At least these other avenues of transmitted communication give a person the option of analyzing different sources of information and then formulating their own opinion of what really happened. This is a much better system than just accepting and believing the vomit that mainstream news media is putting out all for the sake of “mind control.”
The hot issue lately is the illegal Federal Land Grab, and the oppressive tactics being committed by the federal government, BLM, FBI, Homeland Security, NSA, and along with the unholy control over our County Sheriffs of the 3300+ counties in the United States of America.
For those who don’t know, the Sheriff is the highest law enforcement officer in any county, but he/she is not just a glorified “ turn key” to the county jail, he/she is also the protector and guardian of our constitutional rights.
If the truth be known, the April 2014 Bunkerville, NV situation, with the Bundy family questioning the authority of the federal government (BLM) over public lands, and their long-term litigation in federal court, perpetuated by the harassing BLM federal agents and their ever-changing policies and rules, over cattle grazing rights, could have easily been avoided had the then Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie intervened and protected the Bundy family and others who were exercising their first Amendment Rights to peacefully protest their grievances, openly and freely, to the federal government, something rightfully granted by the Constitution of the United States of America, and the Bill of Rights.
Since the then Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, with the continuing help of then Assistant Sheriff, now Sheriff of Clark County Nevada, Joe Lombardo, failed to intervene, and literally gave permission for the federal government to run roughshod and unbridled over — and commit reckless and illegal acts toward — the Bundys, their patriotic supporters, and any others that happen to believe and support their constitutional cause, they did. Once the law enforcement authority was relinquished to the Feds, our own Senator Reid chimed in and declared that all those involved in the Bundy protest were now officially labelled “Domestic Terrorists,” and will remain so for the rest of their lives. This was all very convenient, as evidenced by the latest and current federal charges being levied against the Patriots , stemming back to the April 2014 Bunkerville, NV protest. But there are added consequences to the Bunkerville, NV protest. Patriot and supporter Robert LaVoy Finicum was murdered by FBI agents and their co-conspirators on January 26, 2016 during a traffic stop in Burns, OR.
Fortunately for all concerned, the Feds backed down and reversed their illegal activities toward the Bundys, the Militia, the American Patriots, and their supporters, in April of 2014, at least for the time being.
In January 2016, Finicum traveled to Burns, OR, to support the illegal re-arrest and additional incarceration of Dwight and Steven Hammond, for an additional five years in federal prison pursuant from a trumped up Arson Charge, for which they both previously served their time in prison, and now were re-arrested and thrown back in federal prison for five more years, for the same exact crime.
As part of the Patriots support for the Hammonds and the illegal land grab by the Feds (again), Ammon and Ryan Bundy traveled to Burns, OR, and along with others occupied the Malheur Wildlife refuge (unoccupied building) as a staging area for the Hammond Illegal arrest protest, and for the continuing illegal “Fed Land Grab” protest.
The Sheriff, Dave Ward, of Harney County, encompassing Burns, OR and the Refuge, just like former Sheriff Douglas Gillespie of Clark County, NV, relinquished his law enforcement control over Harney County to the Federal Government, FBI, and their co-conspirators, which eventually lead to the murder of Robert LaVoy Finicum by FBI agents, the arrest of the patriot occupiers of the refuge, numerous federal charges against the Bundys for the April 2014 protest, and the continuing incarceration of the Hammonds.
This entire situation could have been avoided except for the “corruption” by our local, state, and federal elected officials. Just remember the protesters never threatened, or harmed anybody. The Feds threatened the protesters with snipers and their high-powered rifles; BLM tasered 8 to 10 protesters, threatened the protesters with K9 Dogs, destroyed and stole the protesters cattle, and finally eventually murdered an American Patriot (Robert LaVoy Finicum), and are now in the process of manufacturing a cover-up murder investigation because they know they were wrong and are now exposed.
These are very sad times, but the right time to stand up and stand tall against these corrupted government injustices.
Remember to Keep your Gun, Keep your Faith, and they can keep their Change.
In God We Trust
