Subject: Torture: The Bundy Travesty of Justice....Activists and Dissenters Could Face
May 6th, 2017
By Dave Bertrand
Ammon Bundy and his family went up against the U.N. Agenda 21 land grab tyranny that plagues the far west. The worst thing Bundy did was stand eye to eye with Bureau of Land Management (BLM) SWAT Teams, along with a couple hundred patriots, in-order to retrieve approximately 160 head of cattle seized by the BLM in the Bunkerville Nevada area. The Swat Team leader said, "we will begin shooting if you advance further," and the cowboys advanced as the Swat team were immediately advised by their commander to "retreat. " Nobody was hurt, but a few cattle died in the process.
That set the stage for what is happening now in Clark County Nevada. (Read the full report below my commentary)
Following the stand-off with BLM in Bunkerville Nevada, the Bundy's travelled to Oregon to bring attention to a rancher and his son's RE-ARREST by a rogue Federal Judge of whom decided "their time in prison was not enough." The father and son ranchers went back to prison, and the Bundy's ended-up in a kangaroo court (and jail) without bond, but later cleared.
The Bundy's were not free to leave, but were picked-up from Portland by the U.S. Marshal Service and were extradited to Las Vegas for charges involving the stand-off with BLM at Bunkerville months earlier where Ammon Bundy is now being held without bail...but worse, tortured.
Previous to Bundy's arrest in Oregon and the death ambush killing of rancher LaVoy Finicum by FBI and State Police, the Bundy's went to Oregon to protest the arrest of the father and son ranchers, which set-off the alarms across the Liberty Movement and a peaceful march on the streets of Burns Idaho, led by both Ammon Bundy and Sheriff Mack, brought attention to this terrible injustice by the federal government.
Then of course, an estimated 15 undercover FBI agents/informants got involved and persuaded Ammon Bundy and others to occupy the Malheur Wildlife offices, just south of Burns..... in an attempt to bring about awareness of the U.N. Agenda 21 land grab problem the arrested father and son ranchers were victim of....."setting a back-fire to save their ranch from the controlled BLM fires that got out-of-hand." Both father and son were labeled by the rogue federal judge as "domestic terrorists," therefore were re-arrested and charged accordingly as mentioned above.
After the peaceful march in Burns Oregon, the Bundys and a handful of patriots, but not knowing they had already been infiltrated by the FBI, went to the wildlife reserve and set-up operations in the un-occupied offices. The stand-off caused a major federal operation to take shape with hundreds of federal agents summoned to Burns Oregon.
What the Bundy's did by occupying the wildlife offices was no more than what "Occupy Wall Street" did for months...without prison time.
In the meanwhile, the Bundy's and associates were NOT arrested at any time as they went to town to pick-up supplies, etc, but one evening, after an invitation by an adjacent county Sheriff, to speak their concerns with approximately 400 residents and ranchers of that county awaiting them, the Bundy's and LaVoy Finicum entered a danger zone ambush by the FBI and Oregon State Police. LaVoy Finicum was unarmed and shot several times as he exited his vehicle. The FBI tried to cover up the details and as a result, the Bundy's and others were acquitted by the Jury in Portland, but were extradited to Las Vegas over charges involving the Bunkerville stand-off.
Now....Ammon Bundy sits in a prison without bail (see below) and latest reports show that he has been tortured, deprived of food and water, isolated to solitary confinement, as the court case and charges against him are adjudicated.
We know that Harry Reid has his dirty hands in this situation since the Bundy Ranch is the last of 50 ranches that dirty Harry could not buy-out for his lawyer son's land acquisition deal with a Chinese firm. After the stand-off with BLM, Harry Reid vowed to get even by stating, "this is far from over."
What is happening to our patriot (political prisoner) Ammon Bundy is in direct violation of the Geneva Convention rules for prisoners. Furthermore...it's a testament of what future political prisoners will face if the "Deep State" Communists fulfill their mission to take-down the Trump Administration.
Ammon Bundy did NOTHING more than demand justice by taking his 160 head of cattle back, a situation that could have been handled in a different manner, but today, he is being made an example of what dissenters and patriots could face....but yet, ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter can shout all day long that "Trump must be killed" while rioting in the streets, burning buildings and cars, but yet nobody is going to prison.
AG Jeff Sessions MUST intervene on this American tragedy....and on top of this charade, the prison is a privately owned corporation !

THE GOVERNMENT SET THE STAGE FOR THIS EMBARRASSMENT, SO THEY MUST OWN THE RESULTS.
by Shari Dovale
Ammon Bundy was tortured in the Pahrump Federal prison this week. He was shackled and placed in a 3 foot by 3 foot shower stall, and left for 13 hours with no food and water. He was told that they originally intended to keep him cuffed and stuffed in that stall for 72 hours, with no food and no water. They then intended to remove him from the stall, take him to medical and insert an I.V. so as to keep him from dying.
The plans were cut short when several swat team members, dressed in full tactical gear, forcefully removed him from this shower stall and stripped him naked. They proceeded to “inspect” his naked body as he lay on the floor.
He was not able to raise his arms above his head, as instructed, due to the pain he had been in for the previous 13 hours. They had to help him comply.
His legs were bleeding from the shackles and he had trouble walking. Again, they had to help him.
He was thrown into Solitary Confinement, still without his clothing. Later, a guard stuffed his undergarments through the hole in the door.
Ammon is of the firm belief that if he had been left in that stall for the full 72 hours it would have probably killed him. Hear his words in this video:
All of this abuse was video recorded by the guards at the Nevada Southern Detention Center, Pahrump. There is evidence of this assault.
When word reached the public, it went viral. We wrote about it, along with several other alternative news outlets. Videos were made. Calls began to officials from Nevada to Washington D.C.
Yet, Ammon still sits in Solitary.
A Call-To-Action has gone out to rally in Pahrump and protest this torture. The Federal government has responded by locking down the prison and refusing ALL inmates any visitors. This seems to be an attempt to turn the prison inmate population against the political prisoners, specifically Ammon Bundy.
This writer received a message from the Nevada Department of Corrections Inspector General’s office. I spoke with a very nice woman named Brooke Keast, who wanted to assure me that their particular department cannot intervene in the Federal facilities.
I was very happy to arrange a phone call with her. She was extremely polite and seemed to genuinely want to help when we talked.
However, during our call, she happened to mention that she was standing next to Mari St. Martin, the Communications Director and Public Information Officer for Governor Brian Sandoval. St. Martin, in turn, happened to be standing next to Governor Sandoval.
Based on the discussion, it would seem that Governor Sandoval had not been informed of the situation playing out in his state. He has now been informed.I hope to see a public statement from his office in the near future. If I don’t, I will be sure to call his office, probably via Ms. St. Martin, and ask why.
Continuing my discussion with Ms. Keast, she told me how things should be handled, and, of course, how they are handled in the State facilities. She also recommended that we contact the Warden directly, to start with.
I expect to be hearing from Ms. Keast again. I will let you know when that happens.
The Geneva Conventions is a body of Public International Law, also known as the Humanitarian Law of Armed Conflicts, whose purpose is to provide minimum protections, standards of humane treatment, and fundamental guarantees of respect to individuals who become victims of armed conflicts.
Convention I includes...the Convention prohibits execution without judgment, torture, and assaults upon personal dignity (Article 3). It also grants them the right to proper medical treatment and care.
Convention IV includes … civilians are afforded the protections from inhumane treatment and attack afforded in the first Convention.
The Article 3 of Geneva Conventions covered, for the first time, situations of non-international armed conflicts, types of which vary greatly. They include traditional civil wars or internal armed conflicts that spill over into other States (countries) … It requires humane treatment for all persons in enemy hands, without any adverse distinction. It specifically prohibits murder, mutilation, torture, cruel, humiliating and degrading treatment, the taking of hostages and unfair trial.
Remember that the prosecution called this an “armed conflict”. They set the stage for this embarrassment, so they must own the results.
The treatment that these political prisoners are enduring are a direct violation of the accords that this country entered into and ratified.
Additionally, keeping in mind that these men have NOT been convicted of any crime, they are supposed to be treated as innocent until proven guilty, as guaranteed by the US Constitution.
The Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees the right to a speedy trial. Furthermore, Federal law requires that a trial commence.
18 U.S. Code § 3161, (c) (1)
In any case in which a plea of not guilty is entered, the trial of a defendant charged in an information or indictment with the commission of an offense shall commencewithin seventy days from the filing date (and making public) of the information or indictment, or from the date the defendant has appeared before a judicial officer of the court in which such charge is pending, whichever date last occurs. If a defendant consents in writing to be tried before a magistrate judge on a complaint, the trial shall commencefrom the date of such consent.
The fact that they have been held for over 400 days, with no trial yet in sight, makes their detention a part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The NDAA allows for trial-free, indefinite detention of anyone, including American citizens, so long as the government calls them terrorists. (Remember Harry Reid?)
The government, aided by Judge Gloria Navarro, has continuously denied these defendants all of their Constitutionally-guaranteed rights, as expected under the NDAA.
Navarro has also repeatedly refused them bail. Accused murderers have been offered bail, including a case just this week in North Idaho, in which the suspect is being held until he can come up with one million dollars. Regardless of whether or not he can come up with the money,he was offered the chance for pre-trial release.
Our Federal Government has specifically set out to defy their own laws. And they do so without fear of retribution. Where is Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump? Can they tell us if this is a case for the NDAA, or a case for the US Constitution?
Sharon Wehrly is the sheriff of Nye County, Nevada. Her office has been bombarded with calls. They have decided to become a part of the problem, instead of the solution. They state that only a person with “personal knowledge” can make a written complaint, and this is the only complaint they will investigate.
So, only the prisoners (who have already been threatened with new charges of “Insurrection” if they complain) can file the complaint. But, the Sheriff will not send anyone out there to get the complaint. (Catch-22?)
Is it any wonder that the guards believe they, too, are above the law? Someone needs to be held accountable.
What is their purpose?
This is a good question. The case can be made that Ammon Bundy will end up as a martyr for the US Constitution. People are rallying around him from each state in the union. If something should happen to this man, there seems sure to be a considerable reaction.
We have already had one martyr in LaVoy Finicum. Will the Federal Government insist on another?
Could that be the goal, or just the “Unintended consequence”?
History shows us how bad the government will come out of this, if they end up turning Bundy into a martyr. There are many smart people in government. You think any one of them would have thought this through.
Start your phone calls to the warden!
Continue the phone calls to the Governor!
Keep going up the chain, to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Trump.
Cite these laws. Remind them they are here to enforce, and to obey the laws they enforce.
We will reach someone that can stop this barbaric treatment!
Here is a list of numbers you can use. Please call as many as you can, and you can do this repeatedly until the situation is resolved.
