HOW FAR WILL THE GOVERNMENT GO TO COLLECT UNPAID TAXES?

The “GOVERNMENTS” account of the story of Gordon Khal, Yorie Khal, Scott Faul.

On February 13, 1983, the US Marshal for North Dakota, Ken Muir, and Deputy US Marshal Robert Cheshire were killed while attempting to serve an arrest warrant near Medina, North Dakota. Four other law enforcement officers were wounded in the gunbattle. Their opponents were members of a local Posse Comitatus group, one of whom was also gravely wounded in the encounter.

Gordon Kahl was a tax protestor and member of a local Posse Comitatus group in North Dakota. A decorated veteran of WWII, Kahl was no stranger to combat. He had flown over 50 missions as a turret gunner on a B-25 and shot down 10 enemy planes. Having been radicalized concerning Federal tax policy, he had previously been convicted of tax evasion in Texas and was on parole. As a result of a parole violation, a Federal arrest warrant had been issued for him. Marshal Muir planned to take Kahl into custody after a tax protester meeting in Medina. The Medina Police Chief mandated that the arrest take place outside of town.

A roadblock was set up about half a mile outside of town, manned by Marshal Muir, Deputy Marshal Carl Wigglesworth, and Medina Police Officer Steve Schnabel. Deputy Marshals Cheshire and James Hopson, along with Stutsman County Deputy Bradley Kapp maintained position in town to follow Kahl when he left the meeting.

Kahl left the meeting accompanied by his wife Joan, his son Yorie, and several other tax protestors. They were in two vehicles. Immediately after leaving Medina, Gordon Kahl spotted the roadblock. Both vehicles pulled into the driveway of a home and started to turn around. Before they could head back to Medina, a Dodge Ramcharger pulled into position on the road to cut them off. In it were Deputies Cheshire, Hopson, and Kapp. The Deputies dismounted from their vehicle. Cheshire was armed with an AR-15, while Hopson and Kapp had shotguns. Following that, Gordon Kahl, Yorie Kahl, and Scott Faul dismounted from their vehicles. All were armed with Mini-14 rifles. A standoff began.

The Kahls and Faul maneuvered into positions of cover around the vehicles. In response, Cheshire had Muir, Wigglesworth, and Officer Schnabel move up close to the standoff. Faul began backing toward the house and Wigglesworth moved to intercept him. All parties in the encounter except Muir were armed with rifles or shotguns. Most of the confrontation takes place at a range of only a few yards. The stage is set for a close range gunbattle with long guns. The results would be devastating.

After approximately 10 minutes of maneuvering and back and forth shouting, a shot is fired. Deputy Cheshire is hit in the chest and badly wounded. Deputy Kapp shoots Yorie Kahl several times with his shotgun. Marshal Muir, an accomplished marksman with a revolver, also shoots Yorie but the .38 round is stopped by the .45 autoloader that Yorie carries in a shoulder holster. Gordon Kahl then shoots and kills Marshal Muir. Immediately afterward, Kahl shoots and wounds both Schnabel and Kapp. Hopson is felled when a piece of asphalt is kicked up by a ricochet and enters his ear and then brain.

The injured Kapp is forced to retreat when Kahl advances on his position. Kahl then shoots the already mortally wounded Cheshire twice in the head with his Mini-14. After executing Cheshire, Kahl takes Schnabel’s revolver and police car. The Medina Police Chief brings the local fire and rescue crew to treat the wounded.

After the shootout, Kahl then drove the seriously injured Yorie to the local clinic where he was stabilized and evacuated to a hospital in a nearby city. Faul and Gordon Kahl used Officer Schnabel’s stolen police vehicle to flee the area. Kahl left North Dakota and went to Arkansas. He was on the run for several months and the subject of a nationwide manhunt, wanted by both the US Marshals and the FBI.

Kahl was involved in another shootout with Federal and local law enforcement officers in Arkansas the following June. It resulted in Kahl’s death along with Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Matthews. Yorie Kahl recovered from his wounds and was tried, along with Scott Faul, for the murder of Deputy Cheshire. They were sentenced to life imprisonment. Their appeals have been exhausted. Both are scheduled to be released in 2023.

“PART 2”
THE TRUTH BEHIND THE MURDER OF GORDON KAHL.

Tax Protestor Gordon Kahl stopped filing Income Taxes in 1968. For 9 years thereafter, the IRS ignored him, but in 1977 after Gordon Kahl spoke on a radio talk show regarding the illicitness of the income tax, some 250 phone calls would come into the radio station over the next two days; either supporting Kahl in some aspect, or pledging never to file another tax return.And with that, the IRS came down on Kahl like a ton of bricks. They quickly assembled a case against him and two weeks later threw a criminal prosecution against him for violating Title 26, Section 7203 [“Willful Failure to File”].

Gordon Kahl was a low-income farmer with 6 children not even meeting minimal statutory standards for threshold income levels achieved before being required to file taxes, but that was not about to stop the IRS, who is good at changing the facts by creating facts.

He was convicted and incarcerated.
When out of Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary on parole, Kahl left the Texas where in he was paroled by claiming that some aspect of the Restriction Orders was defective. He soon moved to North Dakota — and there, he met his fate.

A criminal Summons issued from a Federal Court in Midland, Texas was served on Gordon Kahl on August 8, 1980, charging him with a misdemeansor. Gordon Kahl responded by informing the Court that he would not be appearing, and the matter was allowed to be deferred until March 31, 1982, when the Justice Department obtained a Federal Arrest Warrant citing his parole violation.
Then, that Warrant was held up again until July 26, 1982, some 16 months later, when it was sent to the U.S. Marshals Office in Fargo, North Dakota on February 13, 1983.

The United States Marshals and the Federal Court in Texas knew of his whereabouts in North Dakota at all times.

Ronald Reagan as President, and with William French Smith sitting as Attorney General, the word came down the pipeline to GET RID OF GORDON KAHL, and the stage was set for the kind of confrontation the Feds wanted.
A violent attack was planned against Gordon Kahl at his farmhouse, and it was going to be well publicized. The attack would be in the form of a roadblock, it would be in the evening hours, and it would occur in a remote rural area. The timing of the attack in February of 1983 was selected to coincide with the trials of other related criminal prosecutions then going on that would be favorably tipped towards the Government, as the Juries were exposed to what would be surfacing visibly on the news as the Gordon Kahl “incident.”

From his farm in Heaton, North Dakota, both Gordon Kahl, along with his neighbors, and the Chief of Police of Medina, North Dakota, Darrell Graff, all had received several advanced notices that the United States Marshals were planning a very unpleasant reception for Gordon Kahl, and in the case of Darrell Graff, he would have no part of it in his town and told the U.S. Marshals to take it outside of his town.

THE DAY OF THE AMBUSH

On the 14th of February, 1983, Gordon Kahl, accompanied by his wife and son Yori, left a meeting in a Medina, North Dakota commercial district and headed home.
Gordon Kahl was under surveillance and he knew it. He could have been picked up at the meeting, but the Feds had a surprise for him and wanted the remoteness of a rural environment.
His son Yori detected something adverse and dangerous in the air, and so he took his father’s jacket and cap and wore those on himself on the ride home that afternoon.

Not far from his farmhouse a roadblock had been set up by U.S. Marshal Kenneth Muir. It was a very unusual roadblock in that it had an ambulance and firetruck waiting there. Yes, there was going to be some trouble. The Marshal had not come to arrest, but to murder. Bringing neither the Arrest Warrant, nor any identification, Deputy Muir brought his gun and orders to terminate Gordon Kahl.

Arriving at the roadblock, Gordon’s son, Yori Kahl, fled the pickup truck and ran to a nearby telephone pole for cover. Thinking that Yori was his dad Gordon, Marshal Muir first to open the shooting by firing several shots at Yori.
Yori did not fall to the ground quick enough to satisfy the killer Marshal, so Marshal Muir kept on shooting until Yori fell.
After seeing his own son cut down by Marshal Muir, Gordon Kahl grabbed a gun and let Marshal Muir have it, killing him and Deputy Marshal Robert Chesire. and Injuring Deputy Marshal James Hopson.

Staying in the background, looking at all of this shooting and profanity being thrown about, was Chief Darrell Graff of the Medina Police Department, who was told in advance that Kahl was going to buy the farm, and that he was to stay out of it.

Gordon went over to the telephone pole, dragged his son Yori, white with blood loss and bleeding profusely, over to an unmarked police car, drove him to a hospital back in Medina, and then as a thick fog quickly settled in on the Fargo countryside, Gordon Kahl sped away into the night.

Soon, a swarm of military stormtroopers descended on Fargo, in military clothing and using military trucks [see Time Magazine [“Dakota Dragnet”], page 25 (February 28, 1983)]. They were on search and destroy orders. Gordon Kahl was immediately placed on the FBI’s ten most wanted list, and was the subject of the most intensive fugitive search in the history of the FBI.
thousands of armed forces were called into search the surrounding North Dakota countryside. Every available private bounty hunter known to the FBI was hired and put on the case, but Gordon Kahl slipped through it all.

Comparison to what they can do when they feel like it, it is worthwhile noting how J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI never showed any such interest in capturing unknown fleeing killers when President Kennedy was shot in Dallas. No roadblocks, no dragnets, no manhunts, no searching — nothing but CIA agents carrying Secret Service credentials restraining people from approaching the grassy knoll for about 10 minutes.

For the next three months, Gordon Kahl had found a home with some friends, Mr. and Mrs. Ginter, and a Mr. Russell, who kept moving him quietly from house to house. It was rather obvious to anyone that if he was ever found, he would be killed immediately. In time, Mr. Russell’s daughter, Karen Russell Robertson, noticed that her father was hiding Gordon Kahl. Possessed with First Person evidence [“I saw…,” “I heard…”], she in turn went to the FBI and spilled the beans. She was given $25,000 and the promise of immunity from prosecution.

The rural house where Gordon Kahl was staying was placed under FBI surveillance.

On the morning of June 4th, a special FBI team of animals and savage killers [which is no exaggeration], known as the FBI SWAT TEAM, left their home base in Washington, D.C. and flew into Lawrence County, Arkansas on a private FBI jet. There, they were met by local FBI agents, other FBI agents, the Arkansas State Police, the Sheriff of Lawrence County, Arkansas, his deputies, and a confluence of United States Marshals assembled from across the country. Several Marshals invited to the Kahl execution operation arrived too late and missed it.

THE MURDER OF GORDON KAHL

Later in the afternoon, it all began. The quiet, isolated and remote house was cordoned off, roadblocks were set up, and all without Gordon Kahl detecting anything amiss. Soon that afternoon, Mr. Ginter left the house alone and he was stopped down the road.
He claimed his wife, Norma Ginter, was in the house alone. Sheriff Gene Matthews went to the front door to remove Mrs. Ginter from the scene.
With her out of the way, the FBI started open shooting, and saturated the house with bullets; but the earth shelter house was made with concrete walls and Gordon Kahl survived through it all without a scratch.

The 36 year old local Sheriff, Gene Matthews, was killed incidental in the FBI siege on the Gordon Kahl hideout.

After a while, as the firing stopped, the FBI cordoned off the house for themselves while the Delta Force animals converged on the house like starved panthers going for a piece of meat. They found Gordon Kahl alive and well inside the home, hiding behind the refrigerator. He was taken to the living room, thrown on the floor, and was worked over with the butt end of their rifles. While numerous bones were being fractured and his teeth were being smashed in, other members of Delta Force went on a rampage in the house, smashing pictures and the television set, over-turning furniture, a copier, and taking a fireman’s axe and chopping up a bookshelf.

While Gordon Kahl was pinned to the floor by the 6 to 8 Delta Force panthers, still under attack from the gun butts, the FBI agent with the fireman’s axe turned to Gordon Kahl himself and chopped off his hand. Then he went around and chopped off Gordon Kahl’s other hand, and then both of his feet were severed. While screaming with pain and with blood gushing out profusely over the floor where his hands and feet used to be, Gordon Kahl was shot in the head at close range, killing him.

A local Deputy Sheriff was given the honor of removing the bullet from Gordon Kahl’s head at the murder scene. [later that week, the deputy would tell a neighbor that he had not eaten in three days].

When local people viewed Gordon Kahl’s dismembered body, they became nauseous and sick.

The body of Sheriff Matthews was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, while later in the evening after the fire the Feds had set had died down, the charred body of Gordon Kahl was taken to the local coroner. The dismembered body was later identified as being that of Gordon Kahl.
The corpse identified as being Gordon Kahl’s was missing teeth, hands, and feet, had a bullet hole in the head (without a bullet), and was extensively covered with tissue bruises and fractured bones.

Gordon Kahl was later buried with military honors — whatever that meant. His wife back in North Dakota received several mean and ugly death threats from the Feds to keep quite or be murdered herself.

Meanwhile, the rest of the country went on like Alice strolling through Wonderland; believing that all was well and that the Federal Government is your trusted friend, and that some little Tax Protestor over there got what he deserved.Back in Arkansas,

CONCLUSION

While shifting through the smoldering ruins in the kitchen, a reporter for the New York Times accompanied by Ray Wade, the land owner’s son, found Gordon Kahl’s left foot that had been severed off by the axe left behind in the house. It was taken to the local coroner Dr. Fahmy Malak in Little Rock, confirmed as being Gordon Kahl’s sliced off foot. However, this was news not fit to emphasize, and the reporter’s story was blurred over when printed.

Mr. and Mrs. Ginter, who had been harboring Gordon Kahl, were charged not only with aiding and abetting a fugitive, but also were fraudulently charged with the murder of Sheriff Matthews. At trial, the only evidence introduced against them, outside of the background story, was the $25.000 informant Art Russell’s daughter, Karen Russell Robertson, who reported to the Jury what she had seen her father do. And with that eyewitness evidence, the Ginters and Art Russell were convicted and sentenced to a Federal Penitentiary.

After spending a while at the hospital, Yori Kahl would actually survive to be charged with murder along with a friend Scott Faul and be convicted by a jury to 30 year in prison.
They are both still in prison to this day.
Excepted release date of 2023.

Now you know the rest of the story of the murder of Gordon Kahl.

A Long Train of Abuses       By Todd C. Engel #presidenttrump

On April 5, 2014, the Bureau of Land Management commenced an operation to impound rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle. In the run-up to the operation, no less than five separate threat assessments were conducted to ascertain the threat that the Bundy’s may pose to law enforcement officers during the roundup. Each and every one of the assessments conducted by the FBI, JTTF, BLM, et.al., showed that the Bundy’s propensity for violence to be virtually nonexistent. With these findings, an appropriate course of action pertaining to a law enforcement presence should have been a few Las Vegas Metro PD officers on scene ensuring the safety of all involved. If that had been the case, the impoundment would likely have been completed without incident. Nevertheless, that would not be the case. The BLM brought in Special Agent in Charge (SAC), Daniel P. Love, who began to stage a small army at his incident command post in the week leading up to the scheduled impoundment. The list of men and material he brought in included:

At least 138 heavily armed agents with level IV body armor, Kevlar helmets and assault rifles.
Two FBI Swat Teams, one from Los Angeles, and one from Las Vegas with attached sniper teams and a F.L.I.R. equipped helicopter.
A U.S. Park Service Special Event Tactical Team (SETT) with an attached sniper team.
Multiple BLM sniper teams
A Mine Resistant Armor Protected (MRAP) vehicle
Drones and Airplanes
Multiple German Shepherd attack dogs
The BLM also set up two “First Amendment Areas” miles away from the impoundment operation for protesters to exercise their 1st Amendment rights. These areas were monitored by cameras and under cover agents who documented the license plates of people in the area. On April 6th, the second day of the gather, agents encountered civilians taking pictures of the gather from the side of the road. For over an hour, BLM agents harass these citizens and attempt to herd them into the “First Amendment Areas.” They threaten them with citations and arrest until they are informed by the United States Attorney’s Office that they have “no arrest authority.” After Just a few short hours later, Dave Bundy is parked on the side of the road filming the gather with his Ipad. A BLM sniper team is deployed on the hill behind him and aim rifles at his back. Agents then approach him, body slam him, grind his face into the gravel and haul him off to jail, all with “no arrest authority.” He is released the next morning with no charges. His Ipad is confiscated and when it is returned, three years later, all video had been erased. As the impoundment continued, BLM agents began to shoot the Bundy’s cattle from helicopters, leaving many valuable bulls dead. They also systematically shot cattle they had corralled at the ICP and bury them in a mass grave. Simultaneously, the BLM and their contractors began to destroy Cliven Bundy’s State of Nevada deeded ‘waters’ that have been in his family for over a hundred years and are protected by Nevada State Law. It’s understandable why they wanted no pictures taken.

Killing his cattle and destroying his waters are crimes under Nevada law.

On April 9th, a spontaneous protest occurs whereby citizens were curious as to why a dump truck and backhoe are involved in gathering cattle. As the protestors attempt to look into the back of the dump truck, an attack dog is released on Ammon Bundy and he is tased three times. His fifty-nine year old aunt is grabbed from behind and violently body slammed to the ground. In the dump truck, they find torched pieces of their water tanks, evidence of BLM criminal activity. When SAC Dan Love is asked by reporter Pete Santilli, if the government is killing cattle, Dan Love states, “we are not killing cattle!” Multiple videos and photographs show different. (All of the information listed above was not allowed to be presented at my trial) On April 12th, a tense protest occurs with armed and unarmed citizens in a wash a few miles from the Bundy residence. As unarmed protestors arrived in the wash, the BLM immediately aimed assault rifles at them and stated over the loudspeaker that they would use lethal force. This precipitated a response from armed protesters who moved down the freeway towards the wash to defend the people from the BLM. During this protest, multiple agents are recorded saying such things as: “This is another Waco,” “This is a shoot first ask questions later type situation,” and after the protest is over, an agent says, “ Not one shot fired. They’re all fucking mouth. We should have ran units in there, smashed em and killed em.” Almost two years after the impoundment, nineteen of us would be arrested and put on trial in three separate tiers. The first tier went to trial on February 6th, 2017, of which I would be included in. Just six weeks before trial, due to my court appointed attorney being incompetent and unprepared, and not wanting another postponement by replacing him, I chose to represent myself pro se. During trial the Judge, Gloria Navarro, in open bias against the defense would not allow me to say the words “U.S. Constitution”, “1st Amendment Right”, “2nd Amendment Right”, “Right to keep and bear arms”, and in a moment of total frustration I asked her if I could say “freedom of speech” in her courtroom. She looked at me and said, “No, you may not.” When the defense got the case and attempted to call our first witness, the prosecution stated that all of our witnesses were “unindicted co-conspirators” and threatened to arrest and indict them if they testified. As a result, only two took the stand in our defense. Just prior to trial, it was discovered that SAC Dan Love had participated in some nefarious activities of which he was under investigation for and was ultimately relieved of duty. In a blow to the government’s case, they removed him as their star witness. No worries though as we would call him to the stand. When the defense attempted to call him, the government fought it and the judge ruled in their favor. The Special Agent in Charge of the entire operation and that agent whose Grand Jury testimony resulted in our indictments, would never take the stand. With Dan Love in a protected status and me completely discouraged at the ongoing conspiracy between the prosecutors and the judge, I asked a witness a single question about Dan Love and was immediately stripped of my pro se status and the ability to defend myself. My standby counsel took over but was completely clueless, knew nothing of the discovery, and continued to take his daily catnaps and e-bay shopping during the trial. As the trial came to a close, we were not allowed jury instructions of “self-defense,” “defense of others,” or “justification” as the judge stated we were unable to prove the presence of BLM “intimidation,” “provocation,” “over aggressiveness,” or the presence of “snipers.” Our only defense would be, “we didn’t do it.” I was ultimately convicted of Count 12, “Obstruction of Justice” and Count 16, “Interstate Travel in Aid of Extortion.” Seven months later, during the third trial in which Cliven, Ryan, Ammon Bundy, and Ryan Payne were defendants, a bombshell memo was sent to the prosecution, the Department of Justice, and Congress. The memo was eighteen pages of outrageous conduct by the BLM, FBI, and USAO and was written by the government’s own lead investigator, Larry Wooten who investigated this incident for almost three years. Wooten stated that on February 17th, 2017, two weeks into my trial, A.U.S. A. Steven Myhre, the lead prosecutor, entered into a conspiracy with Wooten’s direct supervisor, Kent Kleman, to have Wooten removed from the investigation because they didn’t like his findings. All records of his investigation were confiscated from his office and he was told not to discuss the case with anyone. His investigation reports have never been found. This is a classic example of witness tampering and is a crime of “obstruction of justice” as Wooten was on the witness list for my trial. In the spring of 2018, Wooten wrote a second eighteen-page report memo that is so revealing of the governments’ corruption that the judge placed an exceptionally strict protective order on it and to date, it has not been released. In December of 2017, the judge declared a mistrial due to over three thousand pages of ‘Brady’ material (information likely beneficial to the defense) was finally turned over. The new ‘Brady’ material showed:

Five separate threat assessments that showed the Bundy’s were not a threat for violence.
The BLM’s threat assessment showed that (the BLM) were looking to “face-off” and provoke the Bundy’s into a confrontation.
An FBI Operations Order in which the FBI had deployed snipers.
An aerial photograph showing the positions of at least two sniper teams perched above Cliven’s home on the nights of the 5th and 6th, prior to the arrival of protestors or militia. It also showed that the snipers had ranged the distance to his house, carried intermediate range rifles, night vision, thermal imaging devices, and infrared spotlights.
A six man Quick Reaction Force two miles away on stand-by prepared to assault the Bundy residence on the nights of the 5th and 6th.
The presence of live feed cameras above Bundy’s residence feeding real time video back to the ICP and Dan Love.
Evidence that Dan Love, pre-operation, gave a pep talk to his agents telling them to go out there and “kick Cliven in the teeth.”
Evidence that Dan Love sent an email telling his agents how to become “warriors.”
Evidence that Dan Love carried a “kill book” wherein he bragged about being responsible for three suicides in Operation Cerberus Action in Blanding, Utah.
FBI Agent Joel Willis, according to the judge, “hid” exculpatory evidence in his agency vehicle. He stated that he “finally found a thumb drive”, after three years, “on the floor of his vehicle”. On January 8th, 2018, the judge dismissed the case “With Prejudice” against Cliven Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Ammon Bundy, and Ryan Payne due to “Flagrant Prosecutorial Misconduct, Due Process Violations, and multiple Brady Violations.” The government filed a motion asking Judge Navarro to reconsider her decision and on July, 3rd, 2018 she denied their motion and stated that the ‘Brady’ material withheld was at least relevant to Count 5, Count 12, and Count 16; two of the charges of which I was convicted. Shortly thereafter, the government dismissed all charges on the defendants that had not gone to trial yet. My luck for being in the first group! We filed a motion for a new trial due to the multiple ‘Brady’ violations revealing new evidence, a motion for a “Judgement of Acquittal” as the elements of the charges were never met, and a motion to depose Larry Wooten under oath in order to get his story on the record and add additional new evidence to the mountain that already existed. On the day of my sentence hearing, just minutes before going into the courtroom, Judge Navarro denied all three motions stating that the ‘Brady’ violations were not relevant to me and that the new evidence did not reach the threshold for a new trial and deposing Larry Wooten was “moot.” The government had stated, in the indictment, that there were NO government snipers at the Bundy Ranch and therefore Cliven’s assertion of snipers was “false, deceitful, and deceptive” and that his call to the militia for protection was an “unnecessary escalation of tensions.” At trial, I contentiously argued that snipers were present but was continually objected to by the government and sustained by the judge. We now know that as I argued at trial, the government had, in it’s possession, reams of evidence showing that from April 5th through April 12th, snipers were present and active at the Bundy Ranch.

On July 19th, 2018, I was sentenced to fourteen years in Federal Prison. But I was not sentenced for Interstate Travel in Aid of Extortion or Obstruction of Justice but was sentenced for actual Extortion, Assault on a Federal Officer, Threatening a Federal Officer, and Use and Carry of a Firearm during a Crime of Violence; all of the charges I faced at trial but was not convicted.

So why was it so important and why so much effort to remove Cliven Bundy from his land? It certainly was not delinquent grazing fees of $1.3 million, as a government attorney testified in the third trial that Mr. Bundy only owed $8800 in back fees. The answer is quite simple really and could have been found on the BLM’s own website before they removed it. During the impoundment, the website stated that the “Gold Butte Solar Project was not compatible with feral cattle.” There it was for the whole world to see and it had nothing to do with grazing fees. So who were the main players behind this massive land grab? Evidence shows that Senator Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, had formed a partnership and signed contracts with a Chinese solar company to install this solar project in Gold Butte. But they still needed Bundy and his cattle off the land. Harry Reid had a plan. He took one of his high level advisors, Neil Kornze, from his staff and had him moved over to the BLM. From 2009 to 2014, Kornze moved up the ranks until in April 2014 he became the Director of the BLM. To anchor this conspiracy and ensure he had the courts in his pocket, Harry Reid recommended to Barack Obama the appointment of none other than Gloria Navarro as Chief Justice for the District of Nevada. I tremble to think what the outcome of this rogue operation may have been had protestors, armed and unarmed, not heeded the call of this besieged rancher and converged on his ranch from across the country. Would Dan Love have killed this family and burned their house down around them as they assaulted them with snipers and armored vehicles? I thank the Lord that we will never know that answer. From inside a Birmingham, Alabama jail, Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to Justice everywhere.” From inside a prison in Pahrump, Nevada, I couldn’t agree more.

FAKE NEWS; NOW FAKE LAWS

I received the following email from someone I know personally. I am redacting certain things at the moment pending contact with a reporter that I met who works at the Media Outlet in the following opinion letter to the editorial dept. of a Main Stream Media outlet but was not published. I am going to try these so-called rules of Journalism and see how it works out before I proceed.
This and More Coming Up tonight Live on the Freaker’s Ball on RLM RADIO where @Grimnir is Jamming so Grooves right now. Boogie on Over 🙂

Unpublished Letter to the Editor – FAKE NEWS; NOW FAKE LAWS by <<Redacted>>
Riding my bicycle to work on <<Redacted>> was an interesting experience with the <<Redacted>> PD. Riding on the sidewalk to avoid dangerous traffic, I had to pass through a group of men and officers who were detaining a suspect. Wearing my scrubs and my flight jacket from the Navy, plus having a clean conscious, I confidently passed through the group first announcing, “Coming through. Make a hole, please.” The reaction I get is from a uniformed officer rudely stating how I was in violation of the law by riding on the sidewalk. He placed doubt in my mind so I complied to his demand to ride in the street. However, when I arrived at my <<Redacted>> job, I promptly <<Redacted>> [Search Engine] the subject and spoke with the traffic division at Metro. I learned that <<Redacted>> Municipal Code <<Redacted>> allows an individual to ride on sidewalks with only certain areas specified as off limits like downtown <<Redacted>> , <<Redacted>> , highways or areas specifically designated as no bicycle zones.
I am a <<Redacted>> year old man who rides his bicycle to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have no desire to be plummeted by a moving vehicle. This would be counterproductive to my goals. As a medical professional with 25 years experience in <<Redacted>> , I believe in the colloquialism, “Physician, heal thyself.” Yet, my well being was jeopardized by the arrogance of a local Police Officer who, I discovered, was spouting off fake laws trying to control my behavior. I’ve always been a law-abiding citizen but I have developed an extreme distrust of law enforcement, even after having worked closely with them in hospitals throughout my career. Remember the incident a few months ago in Utah where officers detained a nurse for doing her job and protecting her patient from an abusive police department? She was in the right. The police were not.
What explains this nearly universal hostility of the police force towards her citizens which they have sworn to protect and serve? It must be inherent in their training. Having traversed the country for 8 years as a traveling tech, I noticed a trend that nearly all Registered Nurses are plagued with a condition known as “nursitis” which manifests itself with a low-level of arrogance and an unwillingness to learn beyond their profession. There are exceptions, of course, with many magnificent nursing professionals who amaze me with their confidence, professionalism, demeanor and attention to details. The same goes with Police Officers. However both professions, I believe, are conditioned in their training to believe in their superiority over their fellow man. This interferes with their primary mission statements: to protect and serve. This applies to the medical profession as well as to law enforcement. I hold no hope that this affliction which I dub “copitis” will ever be cured but recognition is always the first step.

Pork Barrel Politics

I’d call it greasy gravy lip smacking special interests biscuit sopping greedy government SOP (standard operating procedure)
Pork barrel –

According to the Dictionary of American Politics, there was a time on Southern plantations, back before the Civil War, when the opening of a barrel of pork caused a rush to be made by the slaves. Even if that were true, it has nothing to do with our modern day usage of this term in politics. Pork is a reference to fat, and fat has long been associated with abundance. “Fat of the land’, etc. Thus the acquiring of abundance for ones district was referred to as the collection of pork.

After the Civil War, the collection of governmental favors for your district became known as pork barrel.

Gerald “Jerry” DeLemus (de-LAY’-mus)… became the first person sentenced to prison for his ties to the confrontation. The Latest: Man Gets 8 Years in Nevada Ranch Standoff Case LAS VEGAS (AP) May 31, 2017, at 2:53 p.m.

Harney County, Oregon ranchers Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, his son Steven Dwight Hammond, 46, and federal officials. In 2012, both Hammonds were charged with several counts in relation to two fires… (wiki) – Convicted under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, the Hammonds were subject to a mandatory minimum sentence of five years. But in 2012, US district judge Michael Hogan said that sentence was “grossly disproportionate to the severity of the offenses”. As a result, Dwight served a three-month sentence and Steven spent a year behind bars. , the Department of Justice appealed Hogan’s lighter sentencing, arguing it was illegal to ignore the mandatory minimum sentence. Last fall, the Hammonds were resentenced and forced to return to prison – this time for five years.

WHOA!!! What’s a Stalking Horse You Say – The Set-Up for the Take-Down
………..…………
The 1972 film Jeremiah Johnson comes to mind when thinking to describe the rarely seen stalking horse. Bear Claw, a seasoned Mountain Man teaches the tenderfoot Jeremiah to hunt from the far-side of the query, saying, “Elk don’t know how many feet a horse has!” Hunters would therefore slowly approach their quarry by walking alongside their horses, keeping their upper bodies out of sight until it’s… POW! – too late –
Avoiding the Quarry – The Pitfall of Perception
 The Stalking Horse is used as a camouflage to deceive the target, or the prey. A stalking method used by the Hunter for ages is to crouch behind his horse concealing the true identity and purpose for the approach.....…….“The False Front”

If you describe a person or thing as a stalking horse, you mean that it is being used to obtain a temporary advantage so that someone can get what they really want.
In politics, a stalking horse is someone who runs against a leader in order to see how strong the opposition is. The stalking horse then withdraws in favor of a stronger challenger.
stalking horse bid is an offer or agreement in an attempt to test the market in advance benefiting the secreted party.
