New Information On The Hammond Case

Amanda Marshall
In their Articles of Resolution, the Pacific Patriot Network, make the following claim:

Two witness have come forward and provided recorded eye witness accounts of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), using drip torches, lighting fire along the boundary of the Hammond Ranch. One BLM crew started at the south end of the ranch and the second BLM crew started on the east side of the ranch creating a horseshoe of fire around the Hammond ranch. The Hammond’s responded with lighting back burns to prevent fire spread onto their ranch, protecting their private property. The witness was interview by Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) Frank Papagni, Jr.. AUSA Papagni never called on this witness, nor in pre-trial discovery reported to the defense the existence of these witnesses.
Citizens for Constitutional Freedom request the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conduct a criminal investigation into prosecutorial misconduct for unlawfully withholding eyewitness testimony which would have aided in the Hammond’s defense. The withholding of evidence and actions by US Attorney Amanda Marshal has further led to the violation of the Hammond’s 5th Amendment and 8th Amendment Constitutional Rights.

If this is true, Assistant US Attorney Frank Papagni, Jr. is guilty of criminal misconduct. He knew of these witnesses, (it is alleged), yet refused to divulge their existence to defense attorneys, as he is required by law to do. Had the Hammonds’ lawyers known of their existence, the outcome of the trial might have been different. US Attorney, as head of the US Attorney’s office in Oregon is equally culpable. The Hammonds were tried as terrorists, for God knows what reason, for setting backfires on their property on one instance, to protect their property, and for burning their fields, in another, the fire getting out of control and spreading onto the BLM land. Yet, the BLM has lost control of its controlled burns, burning private land, yet they shrug it off as collateral damage, with the private landowners receiving no compensation. Meanwhile, the BLM received a judgement of $400,000 from the Hammonds. To put it mildly, it is insane.

US Attorney Amanda Marshall, an Obama appointee, is a piece of work. She resigned because of allegations by one of her Assistant Attorneys, that she was stalking him. You can find out her story here, here and here.

Did the BLM and the Oregon US Attorney’s office conspire to railroad the Hammond family? It is time for a thorough investigation by the FBI. If the claims of criminal misconduct against Assistant US Attorney Papagni, Jr. are valid, he should be removed from his office and tried in court. If the claims are found to be valid, the convictions of Dwight and Steven Hammond should be overturned.

  1. Yeah Ok ! Who Said That We Are Wrong , On Helping These People Out , Need PaperWork On This Well There You Go ,You Got It Defend The People . I Hope No More Excuses , Good Job Men In Oregon .

  2. Just for the record, Sheriff Dave Ward, now claims that there is ANOTHER Dave Ward who is not him, who worked for the BLM. I take it with a grain of salt as the Sheriff offers nothing but his say-so. Here is a copy of his tweet to me when I took it to task:

    My response:

    Also, the Sheriff is whipping up the emotions of the citizens with this:

    Good day.

      1. Why so fast Shorty? Has this Sheriff given you any evidence , other than his say-so? And note the last link. That is clearly psyops on the citizens whipping up emotional fear. I wouldn’t trust this Sheriff as far as I could throw a 2 ton rock. You know darn well he being managed by the Feds.

      2. Chasing Rabbits,

        I had no proof it was him, having only a web post to go by. Maybe it really was him. I don’t know, so I deleted the reference. I agree, that he can’t be trusted. He obviously is not honoring his Oath.


    1. Like G.H.W. *BUSH* said there was another G.H.W. Bush working at the CIA when Kennedy was publicaly executed, Dave Ward Oooops THAT excuse was already used 11/22/63.

    2. Maybe you should stick to chasing rabbits ! Pun intended 🙂 there are two Dave Wards they are not the same and it isn’t all that hard to research it , they are not the same age, they don’t look alike ect ect I just dont understand why some people can’t comprehend this

  3. It’s only going to grow more obvious as the weeks and months roll along that the Hammonds were completely rear ended. Once the fact that they were charged under “terrorism” related statute and threatened with a more severe sentence if they spoke out begins to make it into the mainstream discussion, people are going to look pretty damn really ridiculous having lambasted the Hammonds and or their supporters.

    The media is of course going to pull out all stops to keep the despicable reality of this case from coming to light.

    Meanwhile, a 73 year old man and his son are doing hard time for 4+ years….their “demonstrated preference” according to some. Absolutely shameful, depraved and ludicrous.

  4. “It is time for a thorough investigation by the FBI. ”

    No, it is time for a thorough investigation by a people’s authorized Grand Jury. The FBI, and other governmetnal agencies is/are an/a extremely corrupt organization(s) and they cannot be trusted investigating themselves.

    We can constitutonally and lawfuly set up and call out a *Grand Jury Investigation on our own. It will be constitutional and lawful, and its findings can, and if enough evidence found, will go to trial.

    I know it is difficult to get away from what we are used to, been trained since childhood to accept as normal and the “only” way, and that is what makes getting our rightful and LAWFUL government back on track so difficult.

    We cannot trust those that serve within the general government to investigate themselves anymore, they have proven incapable of so doing, look at Hastert, they settled so as to not bring down that whole “house” of cards (Sibel Edmond’s whistleblower – ).

    They settled to shut up and stop any investigation into high pentagon officials and others serving within our government selling state secrets/nuclear/etc to foreign enemies, the highest bidder – NOT caring that our serving family members get killed, injured (by their own “superiors”, filthy scum!). To shut up about the US pediphole ring, etc.

    My understanding is that there MIGHT be VERY few, say 1 – 25 who serve within the executive, legislative, and judicial branch at all levels that are not only corrupt, bought and paid for, but treasonous in their actions against our nation, the American people.

    She Sibel Edmonds is not the only whistleblower to bring these things to light (Russ Tice, etc), and IT IS up to us to remove, charge and PROSECUTE those corrupt and treasonous scum serving at all levels within our governments and to REPLACE them or we will lose everything our forefathers fought for! (My opinion but it is based on many different facts.)

    This should be our investigation, and to get lawful endings under the US Constitution, seems to require us to do this as “WE the People’s” Grand Jury Investigation. Admittedly it will take some people knowledgeable about doing investigations, but there must be some constitutional investigators in our land somewhere.

    *“The grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It is a constitutional fixture in its own right. In fact the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people”.

    “Thus, citizens have the unbridled right to empanel their own grand juries and present “True Bills” of indictment to a court, which is then required to commence a criminal proceeding. Our Founding Fathers presciently thereby created a “buffer” the people may rely upon for justice, when public officials, including judges, criminally violate the law.” (Misbehavior, “Good Behaviour” requirement)

    “The grand jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside, we think it clear that, as a general matter at least, no such “supervisory” judicial authority exists. The “common law” of the Fifth Amendment demands a traditional functioning grand jury.”

    “Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the judicial branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office. The grand jury’s functional independence from the judicial branch is evident both in the scope of its power to investigate criminal wrongdoing, and in the manner in which that power is exercised.”

    “The grand jury ‘can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance that it is not.’ It need not identify the offender it suspects, or even “the precise nature of the offense” it is investigating. The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation, nor does the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment. And in its day-to-day functioning, the grand jury generally operates without the interference of a presiding judge. It swears in its own witnesses and deliberates in total secrecy.”

    “Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said the 5th Amendment’s constitutional guarantee presupposes an investigative body ‘acting independently of either prosecuting attorney or judge”

    “Given the grand jury’s operational separateness from its constituting court, it should come as no surprise that we have been reluctant to invoke the judicial supervisory power as a basis for prescribing modes of grand jury procedure. Over the years, we have received many requests to exercise supervision over the grand jury’s evidence-taking process, but we have refused them all. “it would run counter to the whole history of the grand jury institution” to permit an indictment to be challenged “on the ground that there was incompetent or inadequate evidence before the grand jury.” (Nor would it be lawful of them to do so.) Justice Antonin Scalia writing for the majority said In the Supreme Court case of United States v. Williams, 112 S.Ct. 1735, 504 U.S. 36, 118 L.Ed.2d 352 (1992)

  5. Cal, as always it is a pleasure to read your comments. Have you any way to communicate these thoughts to Mr. Edwin Vieira Jr.?
    We have a governor here in Virginia who should have his back put to the wall in some Constitutional fashion.
    There is no end to what these tyrants will do until ‘we the people’ stand up in their face and BE that end! There are countless men and women like myself who are searching for the Constitutional manner to put a stop to their behaviors NOW. ChrisAnne Hall and Edwin Vieira, Jr., are two of the best Constitutional lawyers out there.
    With gratitude,
    Robert D.

  6. Absolutely the Hammond’s got railroaded!!! We’ve known it from the start… They need out of jail and given there money back and the Attorney locked up!! The Hammond’s were only protecting there homestead!!! Blm had a big fire going, I think they were hoping to burn the Hammond’s house!!!

  7. A perfect example of an out of control government, corrupt and immoral, doing anything illegal to achieve their agenda goal of confiscation of all American lands. Constitution says Feds can’t own State land so how are they able to force shutdown of farmers and ranchers then take their land?

  8. WHY WOULD You Trust the FBI ???? Oh and the TESTIMONY is EXCULPATORY and Grounds for a MISTRIAL ….. Just Saying
