Prisoners of Conscience in a Prison without Conscience – Ammon and Ryan Bundy

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, May 7, 2017

They have been in jail for almost a year and a half. Every day for the last month they have spent in solitary confinement, twenty-three hours and forty-five minutes a day, locked up in a small cell, each man by himself at a Federal Correctional Center in Southern Nevada. They are totally innocent victims of a government vendetta. Imprisoned without bail, they have been denied their constitutional rights by a Justice Department that doesn’t honor the Constitution, and a government that holds itself exempt from popular criticism…

Judge Kicks the Can down the Road Again for Seven Remaining Defendants in the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Occupation Trial

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, November 22, 2016

The Department of Justice appears to be stalling and Judge Anna Brown gave government prosecutors until December 14th to finally decide whether they are going to proceed to trial with the seven remaining defendants in the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge or if they are going to drop the conspiracy charges against them…

Barack Obama’s America

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, November 5, 2016

WHAT KIND of a country locks people up who have not been convicted of a crime?

WHAT KIND of a Justice Department keeps them in jail after they have been found innocent of all charges?

WHAT KIND OF a judicial system allows their attorney to be tazed, handcuffed, and arrested right there in the courtroom after they are acquitted because he questioned the government’s authority to detain them? What kind of a government throws its full weight and power behind a vendetta against one American family in order in order to break them for simply standing up for their rights? Our country does. Under Barack Obama America does.

Misportrayed – The Most Mischaracterized Trial and the Most Misunderstood Defendants in Oregon History… Ammon and Ryan Bundy

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, October 22, 2016

The trial of Ammon and Ryan Bundy and five other defendants who occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in January of 2016 is notable both for what is being discussed in the courtroom and for what is not being discussed in the courtroom. What isn’t being discussed or barely being discussed in the courtroom forms the underlying basis for all of the defendant’s actions and the alleged crimes which they are accused of committing…

The Trial of the Century – The Occupation Trial of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge

Posted by Scott Rohter on Friday, October 7, 2016

The national mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about this subject. Maybe they think it is too dangerous to talk about. I’m not sure, but I know this. The most important aspect of the occupation trial of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge won’t be discussed in the courtroom during the trial. It isn’t going to be debated in the jury’s presence. That is because the judge won’t allow it to be discussed or debated. You can count on that…

Perspectives on the Occupation Trial of the Oregon Malheur Wildlife Refuge

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, October 4, 2016

There seems to be a clear and concerted effort by the Federal government to manipulate the outcome of this trial by concealing exculpatory evidence from the jury. This evidence goes to prove or to corroborate the motives of the defendants and their intent, but Judge Brown has refused to allow any discussion of the defendants’ motives so far…

Ryan Bundy Beaten Up by Prison Guards and Placed in Solitary Confinement until Trial

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, August 25, 2016

Ryan Bundy, the eldest son of rancher Cliven Bundy of Nevada was beaten up by Multnomah County Detention Center prison guards for refusing to allow the government to remove a bullet lodged in his upper right arm. Mr. Bundy was one of the passengers in Lavoy Finicum’s truck on the day it was randomly fired upon by FBI agents and Oregon State Police officers. Mr. Bundy’s wrist and thumb were both dislocated in the jailhouse incident, and his head was smashed into a wall. During jury selection he was present in the courtroom and he looked like he had two black eyes according to eyewitnesses…

A Conspiracy Like No Other

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, July 30, 2016

Webster defines a conspiracy as a secret agreement to perform a wrongful or unlawful act. There are many different kinds of conspiracies, but they all contain two basic elements. They all include an element of secrecy and they all include the intent to do harm. They all begin with a desire to commit evil for some personal gain. No one has ever been indicted for planning a conspiracy to do good. That is no one until Ammon and Ryan Bundy. They are prisoners of conscience in an unconscionable prison…

Ammon and Ryan Bundy Hearing on Motion for Pre-Trial Release / Motion Denied is Justice Denied.

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, July 18, 2016

The little court room was packed at the Portland, Oregon Federal Court house to hear the attorneys for Ammon and Ryan Bundy argue their respective motions on why they should be released from pretrial custody. It was the last item on the court’s calendar today which had to do with the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in January of 2016. The Bundys and two other defendants have been locked up now without trial for almost six months. This was the hearing I had come to witness…

Living in an Undeclared State of Martial Law

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, July 4, 2016

When you think of martial law you probably think of tanks rolling down the streets or soldiers standing on street corners carrying machine guns. In 1989 we saw both of these things happen when the Chinese government forcibly ended a month long demonstration by university students in Tiananmen Square. The Chinese Communist Party believed those students were a threat to their hold on power. In America our political system is very stable. Until recently there has been no real threat to either of the two major political Parties. The Democrats and the Republicans keep taking turns at the government feeding trough while they lead our country down the road to ruin and the New World Order…

Time to End the Occupation of Oregon by the Federal Government

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, April 23, 2016

The controversy over the Federal government’s use and control of land in Oregon didn’t begin with the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge nor will it end with the death of Lavoy Finicum or the arrest of Ammon and Ryan Bundy on federal charges stemming from their month long protest in Harney County. Their peaceful demonstration at the Refuge was intended to call attention to the Federal Government’s unconstitutional occupation of 700 million acres of land in twelve Western States. The dispute over the management of public lands will not be settled at their trials because it won’t even be addressed at their trials. They are merely being tried on criminal charges resulting from their failure to obey police orders to leave the Refuge…

Joint State-Federal Plan to Remove Four Dams on Klamath River Approved… The War on America’s Ranchers and Farmers Continues.

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, February 8, 2016

Not only is the Federal Government waging a procrastinated war on America’s ranchers. Dwight and Steven Hammond, Cliven, Carol, Ammon, and Ryan Bundy, and Jeanette Finicum can all testify to that. Her late husband Robert LaVoy Finicum was recently shot dead in Oregon for objecting to the government’s unconstitutional land use polices. The Feds are not just waging a war on ranchers. They are also waging a war of attrition against farmers in the West… With the help of the Nation’s first LGBT Governor Kate Brown and the entire Oregon Congressional delegation which consists of five Democrats and one RINO Republican, the final steps have been taken to remove four operating dams on the Klamath River…

FBI Pulls the Trigger on the Demonstration at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Not far from Custer’s last stand in a remote part of southeastern Oregon there is a small wooden cross lovingly placed in the snow along Highway 395 not too far from the little town of Burns. It commemorates Finicum’s last stand. It is a rather crude wooden cross that was hastily erected to mark the place where Robert LaVoy Finicum died defending the Constitution he believed in. He was murdered by Oregon State Police officers and FBI agents after…

The Burning Question of Federal Land Use Policies and Land Ownership in the Western United States

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, January 17, 2016

All the bounty of God’s blessings and all riches and wealth comes from the land, and about half of the land in the western United States is owned by the Federal Government. To be exact forty-nine percent of the land in twelve western States including Alaska, but not counting Hawaii is owned by the United States Government. The actual percentage of land owned by the Feds varies in each State from a high of about 94% in Nevada…

Was Burns, Oregon the Right Place and the Right Time to Challenge the Federal Government’s Ownership of Public Lands and its Land-Use Policies in the West ?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Normally peaceful Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns Oregon became the scene of a heated standoff between ranchers and property rights advocates on the one hand and federal law enforcement officials and the Bureau of Land Management on the other hand. At the center of this conflict is a seventy-three year old Oregon Rancher named Dwight Hammond and his forty-six year old son Steven who were recently resentenced to serve five more years in a Federal Penitentiary on trumped up charges of arson…
