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…

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…

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…
