Latest Chapter In Bundy Saga Proves How Corrupt And Lawless Our Government Has Become

You would never know it from the virtual blackout imposed by the establishment news media, but a federal judge presiding over the trial of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his sons Ryan and Ammon Bundy and their associate Ryan Payne has exposed just how lawless and corrupt our government has become – and how if you get on the wrong side of the faceless bureaucrats of the Deep State they will do whatever it takes to destroy your family and put you in prison.

In the latest in a string of failed prosecutions in Nevada and Oregon against those who have opposed federal Bundy mistrialcontrol of vast swaths of land in the American West, Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro in Las Vegas declared a mistrial in the Nevada case against the Bundys and Payne.

Earlier, jurors acquitted the two Bundy sons of taking over a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon for more than a month in early 2016 amid calls for the U.S. government to turn over public land to local control.

In the Nevada case, Judge Navarro faulted federal prosecutors for failing to turn over all evidence to defense attorneys, including records about the conduct of FBI and Bureau of Land Management agents during the standoff.

“The government is obligated to disclose all evidence that might be favorable” to the defense, the judge said according to reporting by the Associated Press.

“A mistrial is a very bad result for the government,” Ian Bartrum, a University of Nevada, Las Vegas, law professor who has followed the case closely told the AP.

Bartrum had cast the trial as a test of whether the federal government could enforce its own land policy in Western states where it owns or controls vast expanses.

“It looks even worse because it isn't the sort of jury nullification we've seen before, but actual incompetence (or worse) by the prosecution,” Bartrum said in an email reported by AP. “It certainly erodes a lot of confidence in the federal government's motives.”

We are inclined to view this not as incompetence, but as what Professor Bartrum euphemistically called “or worse,” in fact a lot worse.

Judge Navarro methodically listed the prosecution's six separate violations of the Brady law, which requires turning over evidence potentially favorable to the defense. The judge further ruled that each violation was willful according to reporting by Maxine Bernstein of

"At the heart of this case is the question, Is the government an entity you can trust? Certainly if you're the prosecution in this case, you needed to do everything you can to show the government can be trusted,'' Kevin Sali, a Portland criminal defense lawyer told Bernstein.

The judge's rebuke of Nevada's Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre, the lead, and two seasoned veteran Assistant U.S. attorneys, Daniel Schiess and Nadia Ahmed, was remarkable in and of itself noted Bernstein.

When a judge makes a finding of misconduct by a prosecutor, the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Professional Responsibility investigates and determines if discipline is warranted, which can range from a reprimand to a suspension reports Bernstein.

That scrutiny is underway. Ian D. Prior, deputy director of public affairs in the Justice Department, announced that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions "takes this issue very seriously."

Sessions "has personally directed that an expert in the department's discovery obligations be deployed to examine the case and advise as to next steps,'' Prior said according to Bernstein’s reporting.

We think that Attorney General Sessions should look into the persecution of the Bundy family a lot deeper than just the latest example of prosecutorial misconduct.

As we documented in our article “Was Bundy Ranch Attack A Harry Reid Inspired Hit?” former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, represents a giant Chinese energy firm, ENN Energy Group that wants to use federal land, grazed by the Cliven Bundy family, as part of its effort to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel-building plant in the southern Nevada desert.

In addition to representing ENN Energy Group, Rory Reid also happens to be the former chairman of the Clark County (Nevada) Commission who persuaded the commission to sell 9,000 acres of county land to ENN on the promise it would provide jobs for the area. Reuters reported back in 2012 that part of the land ENN wants to use was purchased from Clark County at well below appraised value.

In addition to the county acreage, the federal Bureau of Land Management at one time was looking at BLM property under dispute with the Cliven Bundy family. During the original Bundy ranch confrontation, the BLM was headed by Obama appointee former Harry Reid senior policy adviser Neil Kornz.

Got that?

Neil Kornz, the government bureaucrat who originally sent armed thugs to provoke a potentially deadly confrontation with the Bundy family was a Harry Reid crony.

No one was killed in the original Bundy ranch standoff, but the same cannot be said for the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation. Arizona cowboy, father of 11 and one of the spokesmen for the group, Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, was killed by state police officers at a roadblock manned by the Oregon state police and FBI.

Less than two months after the shooting, the FBI acknowledged that a federal agent was under investigation for firing shots and four other members of his FBI team were under investigation for covering up the gunshots. The agent, W. Joseph Astarita, was indicted on five counts of lying and obstruction of justice.

At the time of the original Bundy ranch standoff then-Senator Harry Reid told Reno's KRNV TV, "Well, it's not over. We can't have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So, it's not over.”

As Judge Navarro’s ruling and the indictment of Astarita demonstrate, it is not the American people who regularly violate the law and just walk away – it is corrupt government officials like Harry Reid, Rory Reid, Neil Kornz, Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre, Assistant U.S. attorneys, Daniel Schiess and Nadia Ahmed, FBI Agent W. Joseph Astarita and others who have lawlessly used their government power to target Cliven Bundy and his family.

Bundy Trial

"We can't have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it." Unless her name's Hillary Clinton.

Deep State Abuse

The Deep State Government abuse started long before the Bundy's were attacked by the FBI jack booted thugs. Remember Waco and Ruby Ridge? How about the JFK murder and 9-11. All were operations of the Fascist Globalist Deep State. There is but a handful of powerful Globalist Elites who control the Deep State. They need their names and addresses published again and again. Expose the cockroaches.

Deep Satae abuse

The whole lot probably deserve death by hanging, but they must be tried and convicted first.
