PORTLAND, Oregon — Citing a lack of evidence, federal prosecutors have dismissed the government’s conspiracy charge against radio shock jock Pete Santilli, a new media journalist who was arrested and charged in connection with his reporting on the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon. The dismissal came on the eve of Santilli’s trial.

Attorneys for The Rutherford Institute advised Santilli’s court-appointed attorney, Thomas Coan, on the First Amendment protections for Santilli’s activities as a journalist. Santilli is the only journalist among those who were charged with conspiracy to impede federal officers from discharging their duties by use of force, intimidation, or threats. However, Santilli was charged solely as a reporter of information and not as an accomplice to any criminal activity.

In coming to Santilli’s defense, Institute attorneys warned that Santilli’s case followed a pattern by the government of intimidating journalists whose reporting portrays the government in a negative light or encourages citizens to challenge government injustice and wrongdoing.

The Rutherford Institute’s memorandum on the First Amendment rights of journalists and the government’s complaint regarding Santilli are available at www.rutherford.org.

“The FBI’s prosecution of this radio shock jock has been consistent with the government’s ongoing attempts to intimidate members of the press who portray the government in a less than favorable light,” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. “This is not a new tactic. During the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, Maryland, numerous journalists were arrested while covering the regions’ civil unrest and the conditions that spawned that unrest. These attempts to muzzle the press were clearly concerted, top-down efforts to restrict the fundamental First Amendment rights of the public and the press. Not only does this tactic silence individual journalists, but it has a chilling effect on the press as a whole, signaling that they will become the target of the government if they report on these events with a perspective that casts the government in a bad light.”

In early January 2016, a group of armed activists, reportedly protesting the federal government’s management of federal lands and its prosecution of two local ranchers convicted of arson, staged an act of civil disobedience by occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon. Broadcaster Pete Santilli, who has covered such protests in the past, including the April 2014 standoff in Nevada between the Bundy ranching family and the federal government over grazing rights, described himself as an embedded journalist reporting on the occupation in Burns. Santilli did not participate in the takeover of the refuge, nor did he reside on the grounds of the refuge.

However, as a self-described “shock jock” who uses “colorful language,” Santilli was vocal about his commitment to exercising his First Amendment rights in a nonviolent, peaceful fashion and the need for others to do so as well. When asked to clarify his role in relation to the occupation, Santilli declared, “My role is the same here that it was at the Bundy ranch. To talk about the constitutional implications of what is going on here. The Constitution cannot be negotiated.” Santilli also took pains to emphasize during his broadcasts that the only weapon he is using is the First Amendment: “I’m not armed. I am armed with my mouth. I’m armed with my live stream. I’m armed with a coalition of like-minded individuals who sit at home and on YouTube watch this.” In the wake of a roadblock that resulted in the arrests of several key leaders of the occupation and the killing of another, Santilli was arrested and eventually indicted with conspiracy to impede federal officers.

Mr LaVoy Finicum, recently executed for the crimes of trespassing and squatting, is a published author as many of you know. His book is called ‘Only by Blood and Suffering’ and is available on Kindle for $6.99. I will provide a link at the bottom.

I don’t know of a website or fund yet to help his survivors but when I do I’ll publish it. If one of you know of one already set up and running, please let me know in the comments.

But what we can do in the meantime is to buy a copy of the man’s book. He’s still getting paid whether he’s dead or alive. I don’t know if the federales have seized or put a hold on his family’s accounts, but if they have, they gotta release them sometime.
You’ll see at the link that the book’s available for free on Amazon Prime, but that doesn’t give the family any relief. Pay the 7 bucks.

Not only will buying the book put money into his family’s coffers, it will help to keep his name and memory alive. I believe it was the Greeks who said that a man is immortal as long as his name is remembered.

ONLY BY BLOOD AND SUFFERING

Please spread this on your FB pages, blogs and other social media. No need to credit or link to me, let’s just get a few books sold. Feel free to copy and paste.

Any doubt anyone has that the left in this country are the sickest,most truly depraved people on the planet-

Stories about the Malheur protests,the arrest of Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and the killing of Lavoy Finicum by the stormtroopers.

Just read the comments…

The “Minds” of the Left

A leftist/libtard site is mocking those standing up for their rights at the Malheur wildlife refuge.

They are soliciting donations to leftist “conservation” groups-groups that oppose any human activities on our public land that they do not approve of.

These groups do not approve of:

hunting,trapping,ranching,logging,mining,fishing,riding ATV’s and dirt bikes-they only support hiking and taking pictures,they do not consider ranchers,farmers,loggers,hunters,trappers,fishermen,ATV riders,dirt bike riders,or miners to be the public,their public only includes themselves and their fellow enviro-nazis.

These people have zero respect for the people who have lived for generations in the areas they demand be turned into “national monuments”,”wilderness areas”, “wildlife refuges”, or “nature preserves”.

They support nonsense such as preventing farmers from drawing irrigation water from the Sacremento and San Joaquin rivers due to the presence of a 3″ fish-the delta smelt,and preventing close to a million people from drawing residential DRINKING WATER from an existing reservoir on the Santa Ana river,due to the presence of another 3″ fish-the Santa Ana sucker.

Just Google environmental groups sue USFWS and you’ll see how these people are imposing their will on the rest of us,only animals matter-not humans.

Look at all the lawsuits filed by The Center for Biological Diversity

The same Center for Biological Diversity that sued the EPA in an attempt to ban ALL lead ammo.

This is accomplished by abusing the endangered species act,filing anendless stream of lawsuits to force the USFWS to declare a fish,snail,frog,toad,lizard or bird as an endangered species.

These are the people who spiked trees,maiming loggers for life,chained themselves to trees to prevent legal logging from starting,these are the people who have destroyed millions of dollars worth of logging and mining equipment.

Yet they claim the peaceful protesters at the Malheur wildlife refuge are “terrorists”.

They mock Carol Bundy’s request for supplies to be donated to those peacefully protesting at the refuge.

“While these militants plead for public support in the form of mayonnaise and snacks, we want to offer people a way to reject their criminal actions and support positive work on public lands we all own.”

Any doubts that this…

Leftist website

Is an organized effort by the left to smear and mock those standing at Malheur?

The left is attempting to hijack the attention focused on Malheur for thier own purposes…

“In response to their farcical demands, the Conservation Lands Foundation, or CLF, just launched a counter-campaign on Crowdrise called “Service Not Seizure.” They want to divert the national attention on Oregon to a more positive cause: conservation.”

Said leftist idiots are making comments in opposition to those standing at Malheur

on my site in comments to my post that has Carol Bundy’s list of supplies here

 

 

They’re spamming me with multiple links  back to the leftist drivel HuffPo sponsored website.

It’s causing an increase in page views,but it’s pageviews from leftists,socialists,Marxists,enviro-nazis,and animal rights whackos.

Also lots of this bullshit on my Twitter feed.
