Cliven Bundy Just Got Massive Revenge After Obama Backstabbed Him In Federal Prison

Published

on

Cliven Bundy went from being a little-known Nevada cattle rancher to being a household name in just 20 days. The 67-year-old patriarch of a large Mormon family with over 50 grandchildren, first came into the spotlight in the spring of 2014 when the federal government started impounding his 900 head of cattle in early April, following a 20-year battle over cattle-grazing on federal land.

The U.S. government claims Bundy owes some $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees and penalties for continuing to let his cattle roam free on land near Bunkerville, Nevada. Bunkerville is located approximately 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. The government continued to make this claim despite establishing the area as a protected habitat in 1993 for the endangered desert tortoise and subsequently slashing Bundy’s cattle allotment.

The situation escalated when hundreds of supporters from across the nation began to converge on Bundy’s property in an effort to show support and protest the federal cattle round-up. The dispute highlighted the ongoing debate over the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) practices, especially in Nevada where federal agencies control some 85% of the land.

After an armed standoff with federal and state law enforcement over the defaulted grazing fees, Bundy was arrested in February 2016 by the FBI. However, on January 8, 2018, Judge Gloria M. Navarro dismissed with prejudice all charges against Bundy and his sons, severely criticizing prosecutors for willful violations of defendants’ due process rights, including failing to properly turn over evidence to their lawyers.

The Daily Caller reports – “Navarro ruled a mistrial in the Bundy case last month after prosecutors “willful[ly]” withheld exculpatory evidence favorable to the four men on trial: Cliven Bundy, his two sons and one other person. The judge found that prosecutors had violated the defendant’s civil rights and violated federal law by hiding evidence from the court.

After the mistrial, Navarro set a Jan. 8 date to decide whether the case against Bundy would be retried or dismissed “with prejudice,” barring a retrial over the same charges.

Prosecutors requested the court grant another trial against the Bundys, calling their missteps and violations “inadvertent.”

“The Brady violations found by the court are regrettable and benefit no one,” Nevada’s Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre wrote in legal brief, according to The Oregonian. “But because the government neither flagrantly violated nor recklessly disregarded its obligations, the appropriate remedy for such violations is a new trial.”

The Department of Justice, under order from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is currently investigating the federal prosecutors involved in the 2017 Bundy trial for misconduct.”

Now Bundy is fighting back and refiling a lawsuit against the state of  Nevada and Clark County governments. The original lawsuit, filed in January, was thrown out of court due to the failure of Bundy and his attorneys to take action in the case.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Clark County District Court by Nevada attorney Craig Mueller, who recently lost a primary bid for state attorney general, and Larry Klayman, a prominent right-wing “activist” lawyer who founded the group Freedom Watch.According to The Las Vegas Review Journal -“The suit claims that former President Barack Obama’s late 2016 establishment of Gold Butte National Monument, which occurred while the rancher was in federal custody, was “as illegal as it is unlawful” and would preclude him from continuing to function on his land and destroy his livelihood.

Bundy seeks a declaration from the courts that public lands in the state are owned by the residents.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports –

“Klayman, who unsuccessfully sought to represent Bundy in the 2016 case, also filed a civil complaint on the rancher’s behalf in January but it was dismissed five months later, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Klayman is also representing two of the former defendants from the standoff case in a lawsuit asking for $60 million from the federal prosecutors who took them to trial.

The complaint cites various historical precedents, including the Treaty of Guadalupe Hildago and quotes from James Madison during the first drafting of the U.S. Constitution, to claim that Nevada’s vast swaths of federal land (nearly 85 percent of the state’s landmass) should belong to and be governed by the state.

The idea of western states suing the federal government to recover federally-claimed land isn’t a new idea — most notably the Nevada “Sagebrush Rebellion” in the late 1970s — but most of the legal arguments cited by supporters of greater state ownership of public lands have either been rejected by courts or not yet tested.

The suit also claims that Obama’s decision to designate a 300,000-acre plot of land as the Gold Butte National Monument upon leaving office in December 2016 was “illegal.” The lawsuit claims the land, portions of which the Bundy’s use for cattle grazing, is owned by the state.

“If left unchallenged, President Obama’s designation would preclude the Petitioner and The Bundy Ranch from continuing to function on the land, which it has used for at least 141 years, as well as disrupt the operations of The Bundy Ranch and destroy the Petitioner’s livelihood,” the lawsuit states.

It also requests that the court require the state and county governments to enforce Bundy’s claimed right to the land and that he is “directly prejudiced and harmed” by their failure to do so.

Cliven Bundy’s son, Ryan Bundy, has echoed many similar claims on state sovereignty as part of his platform during his run for governor.

In a statement, environmental advocacy group Center for Biological Diversity’s Nevada state Director Patrick Donnelly said the lawsuit was Bundy’s attempt to turn the national monument area into his “personal fiefdom.”

“That would be a disaster for wildlife like desert tortoises and for people who love visiting their national monument,” he said in an email. “Bundy should abandon this ridiculous lawsuit and take his trespassing cattle off our protected public lands.”

BREAKING: Judge Rules In Favor Of Acosta – Trump Admin Prepared To Make BIG Move

Published

...

* By

This past week President Trump and the White House revoked the press credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta for being rude to the president and for refusing to hand a mic to a female intern tasked with passing it on. A federal judge just ruled that the White House must at least temporarily give Acosta’s press pass back.

In a twist of events, the judge that handed down the ruling is an appointee of President Trump’s. The issue of First Amendment rights has not been deliberated yet, so it is hard to tell where this will go. Acosta may be back in the press pool, but I would not look for him to get called on anytime soon. And I would look for the Trump administration to take this one much further.

Sarah Palin has more on this development:

On Friday morning, a federal judge ruled in favor of CNN’s Jim Acosta and has ordered the Trump administration to immediately give back Acosta’s press credentials.

The decision comes after the White House revoked the CNN reporter’s press pass—thus suspending him form covering events—for resisting an intern who was trying to take back a microphone. The testy exchange was immediately ridiculed by members of the Trump administration including White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Per the Associated Press:

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly, an appointee of President Donald Trump, announced his decision following a hearing in Washington. The judge said Acosta’s credentials would be returned immediately and reactivated to allow him access to the White House.

CNN had asked the judge to force the White House to immediately hand back the credentials that give Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent, access to the White House complex for press briefings and other events. CNN asked for Acosta’s credentials restored while a lawsuit over his credentials’ revocation goes forward.

The rest of the case involves personal and professional damage done to Acosta as a result of the suspension, USA Today reports.

Kelly ordered the government to restore the credential while the rest of the case is argued because of the harm to Acosta.

“This court cannot restore Mr. Acosta’s access to press briefings that have already been held,” Kelly said.

But Kelly said he hasn’t considered at all yet whether the White House violated Acosta’s First Amendment rights. More arguments are expected Tuesday.

“I trust this litigation will continue at a rapid pace.” Kelly said.

Responding to the decision, Acosta said he was looking forward to resuming his work.

“I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us,” Acosta said, speaking at the courthouse. “Let’s get back to work.”

“We are gratified with this result and we look forward to a full resolution in the coming days,” he added in a joint statement with CNN. “Our sincere thanks to all who have supported not just CNN, but a free, strong and independent American press.”

Kellyanne Conway’s Husband Just Unloaded On Trump – BAD MOVE!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway attacked President Donald Trump harshly in a Yahoo News podcast interview published Friday.

Conway is a longtime Republican lawyer who has soured on the administration his wife plays an integral role in. The lawyer is known for his frequent Twitter protests against Trump’s conduct and has taken to writing op-eds criticizing the administration’s legal actions.

Conway was at one time considered for the post of U.S. solicitor general but withdrew his name for consideration explaining, “I’m watching this thing and you know it’s like, the administration is like a shit show in a dumpster fire … I realized this guy is going to be at war with the Justice Department.

“And I’m going to be on the Hill and – if I got this door prize, I’m going to be in the middle of a department, he’s at war with,” he continued. “Why would anybody want to do this?”

Conway was asked what his wife thinks of his increasingly public disputes with the president saying, “I don’t think she likes it. But I’ve told her, I don’t like the administration so it’s even.”

“He’s just trying to get publicity for himself,” Trump recently said after being asked about Conway’s frequent postings. “Why don’t you do this, why don’t you ask Kellyanne that question, all right? She might know him better than me. I really don’t know the guy.”

Conway demurred on whether he stood by his decision to back Trump in the 2016 presidential election saying, “my view is, he was the lesser evil” compared to Hillary Clinton.

Asked if he still felt that way, Conway hesitated.

“I don’t know. I don’t know,” he said. “If faced with the choice again, I’d probably move to Australia.”
