While FBI Investigation Distracts, Bundy Ranch Case Quietly Dismissed | The Daily Bell

Because it turns out the Bundy family were the ones being terrorized. The same terrorists that massacred part of the Weaver family at Ruby Ridge seemed intent on doing the same thing at the Bundy Ranch.

Jury nullification. What every juror should know about and what judges forbid to be discussed in their court and jury rooms. https://fija.org/

But there is another us versus them story that the mainstream media is not so happy to promote. It is the government versus the people.

For all the coverage of the Bundy Ranch standoff, they sure dismissed the case quietly.

Why wouldn’t the media want to report that some dangerous anti-government borderline terrorists are back on the streets?

Because it turns out the Bundy family were the ones being terrorized. The same terrorists that massacred part of the Weaver family at Ruby Ridge seemed intent on doing the same thing at the Bundy Ranch.

Federal judge Gloria Navarro slammed the FBI and Justice Department on Monday, Jan. 8, for “outrageous” abuses and “flagrant misconduct” in the prosecution of Cliven Bundy and sons, the Nevada ranchers who spurred a high-profile standoff with the FBI and Bureau of Land Management in 2014. Navarro condemned the “grossly shocking” withholding of evidence from defense counsel in a case that could have landed the Bundys in prison for the rest of their lives. Navarro, who had declared a mistrial last month, dismissed all charges against the Bundys.

Navarro was especially riled because the FBI spent three years covering up or lying about the role of their snipers in the 2014 standoff. The Bundys faced conspiracy charges because they summoned militia to defend them after claiming FBI snipers had surrounded their ranch. Justice Department lawyers scoffed at this claim but newly-released documents vindicate the Bundys. In an interview Saturday, Ammon Bundy reviled the feds: “They basically came to kill our family, they surrounded us with snipers. And then they wanted to lie about it all like none of it happened.”

And just like in the case of Ruby Ridge, the feds were unable to prosecute. Despite murdering Weaver’s wife and teenage son, there was no reason for the FBI to ever have targetted his family.

And in the case of the Bundy Ranch, the feds put countless lives in danger, wasted tremendous resources, and kept innocent people in prison awaiting trial for years. But the courts exonerated them. The Bureau of Land Management obstruction and withholding of evidence came to light, despite their best efforts.

You can challenge the feds, and you can sometimes “win.” It all just depends on what you are willing to risk and sacrifice. They will take as much from you as possible, no matter how innocent you are…

Prosecutors apparently feared jury nullification in the Bundy case. That is when a jury issues a “not guilty” verdict despite proof of guilt. A jury could do this when they think a law is unjust, like in drug possession prosecutions. A jury could also nullify a guilty verdict when they think the defendants were unfairly targetted or were provoked by federal agents to commit a crime.

But because the Bundy case doesn’t fit into electoral politics, it is ignored. Because the government comes out looking malicious, corrupt, and vengeful, the media would rather not call attention to it.

Be seeing you
