A New Resolution put out by Ammon Bundy concerning the Hammond Family.

A new resolution regarding the Hammond family.

ammond

Many of you, much like me, remember Ammon Bundy from the very first days and videos released from the Bundy Ranch Incident that later became a huge victory for the Liberty Movement. He was that cowboy that first faced off with the BLM tactical team. These were the same thugs that we saw tackle an elderly cancer survivor and sic attack dogs on a pregnant woman. In that first altercation, the patriots made a point of going un-armed. I still can see, in my minds eye, Ammon challenging the ATF soldiers asking who the real aggressors are and literally showing them that they had left their firearms at home, and they had left even their pocket knives. Well Ammon was tased 3 times that day. Again, I cherish the memory of Ammon cowboying up and challenging them to tase him again and again. It was after this situation, combined the “free speech” zones that the BLM had set up that looked to more suitable for holding small livestock than to practice our first amendment rights that we should be able to exercise anywhere within our borders, that were the last straw. It was then that we saw an organic uprising of patriots from a cross section of American culture come together to say to the Feds that we will no longer sit back idly and allow another family be massacred. At this point, we had received credible reports that the powers that be had snipers trained on the family home and things were being set up for another Waco. Not on our watch! The rally call went out and patriots put down their own lives to come and protect a family of fellow Americans.

 

Well Ammon’s sense of duty to stand up against the same tyrannical government overreach didn’t end when the BLM left the ranch. It is still running strong to this day. It was through Ammon Bundy that I first started hearing about the nightmares that the Hammond family have also been suffering. In a lot of ways, the harassment that the Hammonds have already suffered seem unbelievable. Ammon feels that he is being called by a higher power to stand up for the Hammond family. If you are not familiar with what the Hammonds have already been through, please take the time to read this post from the Bundy Family blog spot page. It is the most comprehensive history about what is happening the Hammond family to date.

 

The latest development has been that Ammon is now putting together a resolution that is addressed to the local county government here is the resolution in it’s entirety:

 

We the People – United Individuals of these States United: Coalition of Western States (COWS), Pacific Patriot Network (PPN), Bundy Family and Supporters, Liberty Watch Washington, Oregon Oath Keepers, Idaho III%, Central Oregon Constitutional Guard, Oregon Tactical, Bearded Bastards Oregon, Nevada Committee for Full Statehood, Rural Heritage Preservation Project, Liberty For All (LFA) [continuous names below]

 

NOTICE: Redress of Grievance

Notice to agent is notice to principle; notice to principle is notice to agent

 

Sheriff David Ward, Commissioner Dan Nichols, Commissioner Pete Runnels, Justice of the Peace Donna Thomas, District Attorney Tim Colahan, Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, Governor Kate Brown

 

Dear Sirs,

 

After extensive research on the Hammond case, We the People of these States United have reason to believe that Dwight and Steven Hammond were not afforded their rights to due process as protected by the United States Constitution.

 

We have principled evidence that Dwight and Steven Hammond committed no crime in the act of performing the prescribe burn and back fire, that the U.S. Government does not have authority to enforce Territorial law under Article Four within the State of Oregon, and that the County of Harney and State of Oregon failed to protect the Hammond’s rights as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. USC 42.1986, 18.242, 18.121, 42.1983, 42.1985,

 

We hold compelling evidence that the U.S. Government abused the federal court system, situating the Hammond family into duress as effort to force the Hammond’s to sell their Steen Mountain property to a federal agency.

 

We have substantial evidence that the U.S. Attorney’s Office exploited an act of Congress, imposing cruel and unusual punishment upon residents of Harney County.

 

We hold substantial evidence that inside the borders of Harney County the U.S. Government is acting outside the authority enumerated in the Constitution of the United States.

 

We secure evidence that the U.S. Attorney’s Office independently prepared the indictment against Dwight & Steven Hammond, and that the Grand Jury did not properly assemble or investigate before the indictment. We have no evidence that the Grand Jury participated in the indictment altogether.

 

We have sure evidence that U.S. Congress does not have authority to legislate minimum sentences, requiring Dwight and Steven Hammond to serve five years in a federal penitentiary.

 

We hold confirming video evidence of federal agents exhibiting a culture of intimidation toward individuals and businesses within the borders of Harney County. That federal agents, by fire destroy private property, and that the Hammond family are being denied the same protection of the laws that are enjoyed by federal agents.

 

We have supporting evidence that Judge Hogan controlled the narrative and did not allow full disclosure in the courtroom. We have additional evidence that Dwight and Steven Hammond were sentenced for something different than what they were found guilty of.

 

We hold sounding evidence that Dwight and Steven Hammond are victims of cruel and unusual punishment, and that the U.S. Justice Department is violating the 8th Amendment.

 

We hold sure evidence that Dwight and Steven Hammond are being subject for the same offense twice put in jeopardy. Including that the Ninth District Court of Appeals is in violation of the 5th Amendment.

 

We have obtained appalling evidence that the U.S. Attorney’s Office threatened the Hammond family with early detention and further punishment, if the Hammond family continued to communicate with a certain individual. This evidence foundational speaks against the U.S. Attorneys Office in their gross effort to infringe upon the Hammond’s right to free exercise of speech. 1st Amendment, USC 18.242

 

In a commitment to expose the truth and administrate justice, We the People of these States United insist that you immediately assemble an independent Evidential Hearing Board (EHB) comprised of the people of Harney County in accordance with Common Law principals.  That the Evidential Hearing Board call witnesses and investigate each of these allegations publicly.  That the Evidential Hearing Board make public conclusions in writing upon their findings.  That the Harney County Board of Commissioners and the Sheriff’s Department enforce the conclusions of the Evidential Hearing Board in support of the United States Constitution.  We further insist that the Hammond family be protected from reporting to federal prison until all allegations can be determined.

 

We need not remind you of your lawful duty to act on these matters as insisted, nor of the consequences if you knowingly neglected your duty. USC 18.2382, 18.2071, 18.2076, 42.1983, 42.1985, 42.1986

 

Respectively,

We the People – United Individuals of these States United

This situation is a much trickier one than what we saw unfold at the Bundy Ranch. The reason being that the Hammonds seem to not want any help in this situation. They have communicated that they are afraid, literally, for their lives. It has also been alleged that the US Attorneys office has threatened the Hammonds with early detention and being put into even worse conditions if they are to continue to just continue talking with Ammond Bundy after they had learned Ammond had gone to spend a couple of weeks with the family to really learn their situation and help out around their ranch. The Hammonds had opened up to Ammond until the threats started coming across. So what does one do when the family is refusing the help that could be the very lifeline to help keep these wolves at bay? Hopefully, this resolution and the evidence behind it will help to make the local powers that be reconsider their current plan of action. I would like to see put together in one place all of the evidence that Ammond has gathered so that we might all review it and be better prepared to spread the message of misdeeds across the land.

I had a chance to speak to Ammond Bundy about this situation over the past weekend on my Sunday night talk radio show “The Liberty Brothers” radio show. Here is a link to the video I made of the interview.
We never want to see a stand off happen if it can be avoided. Please keep checking back for updates to this story.

 

UPDATE: I have also included a letter of response from the Local Sheriff to supporters of the Hammond’s here it is:

 

Sheriff’s Ward letter in response to Hammond Supporters 

November 20, 2015

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I have received a huge response from American citizens regarding the resentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond.  I am aware, as I have read it for myself, that there is a significant amount of misinformation being posted on internet sites.

The fact remains:

  1. The case was investigated by the sheriff at that time.
  2. The case was brought before a grand jury and the defendants were indicted in accordance with the law.
  3. The defendants were tried in federal court and found guilty by a jury of their peers.
  4. The charges of conviction carry a 60 month federal minimum sentence by law.  A law which was passed by congress and signed into law by the President.
  5. The defendant’s attorneys requested the 60 month minimum sentence for the crimes of conviction and the defendants accepted the sentence.
  6. The presiding judge violated the law and handed down a sentence of less than the mandatory minimum required by law.
  7. The prosecution filed an appeal to the decision which went to the 9th Circuit Court, where the court found that the 60 month minimum sentence had to be upheld.
  8. The defendants appealed to the Supreme Court, which elected not to hear the case.
  9. The defendants were resentenced to fulfill the remainder of the 60 month minimum sentence required by law.

It is my belief that the Hammonds are decent hard working citizens of Harney County and deserve my attention in this matter.  I have read and will continue to read and look into any injustice found in this matter. 

Please read the attached sentence order.  It is lengthy, but will clear up some of the misinformation being found on the internet.

Thank you for your concern and willingness to help in this matter.  If you have any further questions for me please feel free to respond and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner.  I have received many phone calls and emails in this matter and will respond to each one as best I can.

David M Ward

Harney County Sheriff

  1. Am I missing something here? It appears the biggest problem is the simple fact, Mr. Hammond refused to allow citizens to help and back him? Was that his downfall?

    In the Bundy situation, there was an overwhelming support element that caused the BLM SWAT team to back down. If Bundy said….”I don’t want any help,” the outcome would have been much different.

    Like they say…”We either hang together or hang separately.”

    1. Mr Bertrand, did you not read the above? His family has been physically threatened if he contacts anyone. He fears for them and himself. In the Bundy situation in which I was there, there were no threats made to Cliven or his family for doing what he did. By that I mean contacting Oathkeepers, and asking for help. There is a huge difference between these two encounters. I have followed this from when it first begin. Ammond Bundy had been speaking with them regularly. When the BLM found this out, that is when they issued their ruling, not the judge now, that all communications would stop. And this is when the threats were made, off the record, against Mr Hammond and his family. I would do the same thing he did in order to protect my family. Those of us who have had dealings with BLM, know they are thugs. Most are hired contractors, Mercenaries, whose only interest in these matters is money. They will do what they are told, and some will even go beyond, to earn their money. So blaming the Hammonds is truly wrong. And there is nothing simple about this incident. Bundy’s pales compared to what is happening here.

      1. @Jaybird, this may be or seem a little off subject, but when you said Thugs,mercernaries, and or hired contractors, I believe you. I was just pondering this morning on the Secret Service Do you have any idea where these guys come from or who they are? Because I sure as heck would not be one to take a bullet for someone that is subverting our Constitution.I naively thought that these people would be of the highest caliber of character. Thanks, CB

        1. I would say in response to “the highest caliber of character” is what the American people default to in their thinking. We SHOULD be able to rely on this, however, there are so very few with high caliber (most especially in any government or judicial position) that we are shocked when an actual true hero shows up. So shocked in fact that when we do find someone who has also been abused and has the eloquence to speak it, like Ammond Bundy, that we suddendly feel a surge inside our hearts that truth and justice could reign again. It is very sad to acknowledge that our government and the judicial sovereignity/immunity has come to this. We the States United People are tired of this and I for one will go down fighting as well, for my children. We need a billboard on every single road in America.

      2. “The reason being that the Hammonds seem to not want any help in this situation.” Jaybird…I read the entire paragraph again and it still appears as I posted, but thanks for the clarification.

        The paragraph only mentions the Bundy’s and not Oath Keepers, etc..as a “no contact.”

  2. Great article. Good info. I look forward to reading more. I hope the resolution helps the Hammonds and persuades the Sheriff to see things differently. I hope the Sheriff’s efforts are genuine and sincere.

  3. All owners of land and home should be supporting the Hammond s as well as others who are victims of all tyrannical federal, state, county and town agencies. We are no longer true owners of our property. Our sheriffs need to step up, our citizens need to be informed of the truth behind the unconstitutional governmental take over of our lands and homes.

    The same type of tyranny exists with home owners covenants and restrictions that are forced upon purchasers of homes and condos.

    As we, the true patriots, true keepers of our constitution and God given rights pass on, the memory of freedom to truly own property will fade into oblivion. Slavery is at hand, insidiously creeping and expanding into every aspect of life through fear and intimidation; just as seen with BLM, all other agencies and socialist judges,

    Alas, excepting for groups like Oathkeepers, I see apathy, confusion about what is right and wrong, fear to stand. Words of truth no longer suffice, few listen; actions of principled patriotism are required.

    Should the redress be ignored, then I suggest making the sheriff and other illegal enforcement come get them. Make a stand with an army of true Americans. Call the media, the American people will see what tyranny looks like. Why rot in jail? The murdered people of WACO did not have a strategy for being surrounded by heavy armor and paid with their lives. We have hundreds of thousands of patriots that can stand between them and an out of control government.

    ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ
    It is our determination to not strike the first blow, but also to not stand mute and allow our loved ones, and all that we believe in and stand for, to be trampled by men who would deprive us of our God-given – or natural, if you will – rights to suit their own ends.

  4. Boots on the ground will stop this insanity! Our fore fathers did not die defending freedom, liberty and justice for this sort of crap.

    ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ

  5. Odd….you all sound great, like a group i would be proud to be associated with, but there are people that have recently come here to our great town of Burns claiming to be with the Bundy clan that are being deviant, stalking citizens (including my daughter) and trying to terrorize the community! I have now heard of home break ins, stalking, intimidation by way of death threats, and general fear monging. If that is your method of dealing with this situation then you are all hipocrits, and I would never be a part of such a group. The Hammonds, through their lawyer, are rejecting your help and will report to the courthouse as required by law. Their letter is posted online. If you have any sense of American pride you will tell your aggrevating associates to quit bothering the citizens and leave our friendly community how they found it. If your goal is to be a menace to society, it’s working. Control your people!

    1. Sounds like the Oregon Oathkeepers need to investigate who these people are causing all the problems. The Oathkeepers and patriots I spent time with at Grants Pass during the miners problem would never do such a thing.

  6. We know Sheriff Ward and he is a fine Sheriff. He is a conservative, as is most of Harney County. Just because he won’t bend a knee to Ammon Bundy’s will and demands, he wants him gone. I supported the Bundy’s through what happened to them, but they have come into my county acting like asses. They had a townhall meeting and all of 17 people showed out of over 6000 residents that live in this county. That should show you who we support, and it isn’t the Bundy’s. The Hammond’s committed arson on BLM land, went to court, found guilty by the citizens of this county, went to jail, did their time and were released. These new charges brought against them did not originate here but at the State and Federal level, but what do they do? They come to my county intimidating people, threaten citizens and law enforcement with death threats, break laws by doing donuts in parking lots and scaring the residents of this county and driving without tags on a truck. They follow the wives and children of elected officials, demand to know where they live and go to school. Camp out at peoples houses taking pictures… the list goes on and on. Yea, doing all that will gain them support, and if this gets National Attention, those things will be what the citizens of this county will be telling the media. I have been part of the Militia movement since way back when the Weaver Family was assaulted by the Feds and what they are doing to my county is just wrong. They need to get control of their people or get out of Harney County. And one last tidbit of info, WE are the citizens of this county. We elected our officials, most being ranchers themselves who supported the Bundy’s when they had their issues with the Feds. If WE want our officials gone, WE will recall them. It is not up to These outsiders to decide that for our county. You all complain the Federal Government oversteps their authority in your counties, but then you come here being bullies and thugs and overstepping your authority, which is none. Demanding our elected officials step down. Last time I looked, you are all outsiders and acting like the very Government you portray yourselves to be fighting.

    1. With all do respect sir, could it be conceivable that the rabble rousers you’ve experienced are in fact paid agitators, meant to smear Oath Keepers? Admittedly I’m not there to see what you are seeing, but I wanted to put that idea out there. Oath Keepers are some very respectable men and women, so it made me wonder what is going on here.

  7. After listening to Paul’s comments above, maybe the next video should be an interview with him! He certainly is presenting a good case from a perspective that seems sound. Can he be given more room to express himself?
    Thanks O.K.’s for all that you do and for what your actions inspire!

    Robert D.
