Ryan Bundy Campaigns For States Rights
Ryan Bundy. You’ve heard the name, right? You’ve probably even heard some stories. What you may not have heard, is the truth!
As I’ve followed Ryan, the Bundy family, their supporters and their political protests since 2014, I’ve been inundated with news reports that are just blatantly false. Now that Ryan has announced he will run for governor of Nevada, and the false narratives are out in full force again, I’ve decided to voice my concerns on a few things.
First, Ryan was never involved in any “armed standoff” nor “armed takeover”, at Bunkerville or Malheur. Nearly all media sources continue to call these peaceful protests by these misleading titles. False narratives! Ryan and all those truthfully involved in these protests were at these two locations to PROTEST the wrongful, corrupt, tyrannical actions of our government through unjust, corrupt, admiralty courts, nothing more. I say “truthfully involved”, because we all know there were many there sent by the very corrupt entities whose actions the protesters objected. Undercover agents and agent provocateurs were sent in to stir up contention and incite unlawful behavior. They were not successful because the protesters are men and women of principle and integrity, who understood their purpose and would not be misdirected.
Yes, many of the protesters at both protests were armed – LEGALLY! The Second Amendment of our United States Constitution guarantees our RIGHT to “bear arms”. Why were they armed? Because they could be! In previous protests against our corrupt government, those who were unarmed or inadequately armed were murdered by FBI and other government agents. Perhaps these protesters wanted a fighting chance of living beyond the protest. Yet, they were willing to lay their lives on the line for posterity. Willing to give their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to Restoring the Republic, protecting and defending our Constitution! A Constitution many of them have, at one time or another, taken an oath to defend and protect against all enemies, foreign and domestic!
Second, there was NO “armed takeover” of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge! For years the Bundy and Hammond families had fought through all current court processes for redress of grievances only to have the wicked courts deny them. Prior to the Malheur protest, Ammon Bundy, Ryan’s brother, spent weeks, if not months, going through the process for redress of grievances, only to have the case fall on deaf ears. No one would listen to the truth. No one would address the false conviction of Dwight and Steven Hammond.
That’s when the idea of adverse possession of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, renamed Harney County Resource Center, blossomed. Adverse possession is sometimes informally described as “squatter’s rights”, but it is a LEGAL principle that applies when a person who does not have legal title to a property, usually land, attempts to claim legal ownership based upon a history of possession or occupation of the land without the permission of its legal owner.
The Refuge was not inhabited at the time, no government employees were there, none were accosted by, hampered by, nor taken over by “armed militants”!
Third, the Bunkerville protest was not about cattle or grazing fees! Quote filled with misinformation from Fox News: “…armed standoff to block authorities who planned to capture and impound Bundy cattle that allegedly crossed onto government land.” Again, this protest was over the federal claim of ownership of land within the state of Nevada.
“In 1979, and in response to enactment of the FLPMA, Nevada enacted a series of statutes declaring ownership of and control and jurisdiction over all “public lands” within Nevada. Nev.Rev.Stat. §§ 321.596-321.599.”
“The state of Nevada needs someone who will stand up for statehood and recognize that Nevada is a sovereign state, not just a province of the U.S.” Ryan Bundy, quoted in The Nevada Independent.
For posterity, states must step up and declare all land within their boundaries to be owned solely by each particular state’s citizens! Sovereignty! The people of each state possess the lands within their states! That decides ownership!
Bottom line? Do NOT trust “major” news sources for the truth! Do your research! Listen to those involved who have learned the truth! Listen to Redoubt News!
Nevada could become a very influential state, leading the way for others to follow, when Ryan becomes governor!
Ryan Bundy is an erudite man who has my full support and I hope yours, also! If we want a return to Constitutional principles, to freedom and liberty protected by our Constitution, then, Ryan is the man for the job. I loved his response when Judge Navarro was questioning him about “representing” himself…she asked if he had studied or had any training in “the law” and Ryan responded, “I’ve had two years to study law!” Two years where he took the opportunity, not to rely on others for his defense, but to study law, the courts, and his rights and defend himself. This is a man that will study the rights of the citizens of Nevada and will work for that end.
