Op-Ed: Come No More Upon Me, a Warning Letter From Ammon BundyBy Ammon Bundy • January 18, 2023
From: Ammon Bundy
To: Blake Higley; Scott Bedke; Whitney Welsh; Chris Roth; Annie McDevitt; Erik Stidham; Brad Little; Keith Reynolds;
I Ammon Bundy respectfully come seeking relief that my family and I may live in peace and not be harassed at your hands anymore.
As much as it pains me to do so, it is my duty to plead my case to you in why I have acted the way I have over the past few years. I pray that you will understand my intentions and see how my actions have been based in love for God and my fellow man, including yourself.
In February of 2020 I made a vow that I would not live or allow my family and friends to be compelled to live under the delusional control of tyrants pushing lockdown mandates using health orders as the excuse. I made this vow immediately after becoming aware of what officials in the state of California were doing to the people in that area. I had hoped that the same type of action would not come to Idaho, but my hopes were in vain, as in mid-March of 2020, Brad Little, Governor of Idaho, issued a statewide stay-home-order, much like California’s Governor Gavin Newsom did earlier that month.
Knowing very well that no state or other official has been granted the authority to order my friends, family or I to remain in our homes until we have their permission to leave. Knowing that no man or group of people have the right to order other men or women to stop trading with each other in an effort to provide for their families. Knowing that no man or group of people have the right to order other men or women not to visit and care for each other. Knowing that state officials have only been granted authority enumerated in the state and United States Constitutions. Knowing above all things that the right to travel, the right to visit with and care for each other, the right to leave our homes at will, the right to trade and provide for our families are endowed by God the Almighty Creator to each of His children residing upon this earth, and that no government official has the authority to alienate these rights from His children unless in defense of their own rights.
Knowing these things, I began to act openly in peaceful defiance of the immoral and unconstitutional usurpations coming from government officials within the state of Idaho. Holding regular public meetings, an Easter service, peacefully protesting at a Meridian police officer’s home for arresting a mother who took her children to the park and organizing people to peacefully stand for the rights that God had given them. Never once did I damage any property, commit any violence or harm any person. It is not in my nature to do so.
However, these simple peaceful acts of non-compliance caused heads of several government agencies to communicate with each other about what should be done with Ammon Bundy. In one email chain between the head of the Idaho State Police, Colonel Kendrick Wills, Meridian Police Chief, Meridian Mayor, Robert Simison, the FBI JTTF (Joint Terrorist Task Force), Ada County Sheriff, Steve Bartlett, and several other heads of government agencies and offices in Idaho, all discussed to potentially raid the Easter service I had planned and mass arrest those attending. Imagine, in the United State of America, in the State of Idaho, heads of law enforcement and other officials plotting to raid a Christian worship service on Easter. And doing so because those assembling to worship God did not have permission from government officials to do so. Ultimately, these officials decided not to move forward with the raid and mass arrests because the Easter service was held in Gem County on private property. It is my belief that the Gem County Sheriff and Emmett Mayor did not support the action so they did not move forward with the raid.
In August 2020, Governor Little called for a special legislative session to gain legal immunity for the action of state officials during the lock-down orders. When the session began, hundreds of people came to the Idaho capitol building to attend. However, Scott Bedke, Speaker of the House, ordered the House gallery doors to be locked, guarded by Idaho State Police Troopers; stopping hundreds of people from legally attending the session. This caused many people to become very upset and eventually we pushed our way through the locked doors. I must mention that Idaho State law prohibits the doors to the House or Senate galleries from being locked at any-time during a regular or special session. Regardless, this law did not seem to matter to Speaker Scott Bedke or to the Idaho State Police Troopers. In-fact, instead of apologizing to the people for illegally blocking the doors, the next day, nearly half of the all the ISP Troopers in Idaho were ordered to report for duty at the capitol building. That afternoon an incident with the independent media was fabricated and I was arrested. My crime was sitting quietly and non-disruptive in a public room in the Idaho capitol building (the Lincoln auditorium), during open hours, where no proceedings were taking place. The Lincoln auditorium doors were always open to the public until 7 PM each day. However, that day, at 5 PM, over 60 police officers entered the room and area and ordered me to leave. When I did not leave immediately, I was arrested and trespassed from the capitol building for a year. During my trial, over a year later, multiple police officers testified that I was “not being disruptive and had broken no rules.”
I do admit, at this point I became somewhat irrational. For I believed that I had a right to go into the Idaho capitol building and participate in the legislative process. I believed that the capitol building belonged to the people and not the government. I believed that somehow the people were going to make a difference in the capitol building and that I was to help motivate and unite them. And, I believe that I was targeted and falsely arrested so I could not influence the legislators or the people during that and the following sessions. Ultimately, I was arrested 3 more times for going back to the capitol building to attend legislative proceedings. Each time I was thrown in jail and sorely abused under the hand of the Ada County jailers.
To make matters worse, when I showed up to my first trespass trial, I was not allowed in the Ada County Courthouse because I would not wear a mask. After many attempts to get permission to go into the courthouse to attend my own trial, over a dozen Ada County Sheriff deputies exited the courthouse and arrested me for Failure to Appear (FTA) to my trial. On this occasion I spent 32 hours in an extremely cold holding cell in the Ada County Jail. The jailers refer to this cell as “the cold box”. It was very miserable and cruel.
For the next year and a half, I spent much of my life litigating these cases. Never once had I damaged any property, committed any violence or harmed any person. Yet, I was viciously prosecuted at the hands of a team of Ada County Attorneys. In the middle of these trials, I was also sentenced to 10 days in jail and fined $3,000 (the maximum sentence possible) for Contempt of Court (COC). Judge Annie McDevitt disagreed with me in using campaign service hours for public service time. So, with no opportunity to redo the hours and with no jury involved, she threw the book at me and I spent 10 more days in solitary confinement in the Ada County Jail. I am sure to this day she believes that I deserve such a harsh punishment, but even my critics vocalized their surprise at her extreme and unusual sentence.
In early March of 2022, I received a call from my friend’s daughter Marissa Anderson. She was surrounded by police officers threatening to take her baby away. The Chavoya family are good friends of my family and we have spent much time together. They are one of the most loving, caring and politically active families that I know. The love and care they display to each other and to their friends is inspiring to all those who know them. Marissa’s father Diego and I, during 2020, became two of the most public figures in Idaho speaking out against the governor’s lockdown orders. Especially against the massive federal funds that were being distributed into Idaho institutions due to Governor Little keeping Idahoans under executive emergency powers for over 2 years.
So, after participating in much public scrutiny against the most powerful people in Idaho, police officers surrounded Diego’s family and forcefully took his grandson under a false pretense of child neglect. Eventually, the accusations against the family were all proven to be absolutely false. Over time, the state had to give baby Cyrus back, drop the CPS case all together and dismiss the criminal charges against Marissa the mother and Miranda the aunt. However, I do not find it a coincidence that St. Luke’s Hospital, the #1 PRIVATE beneficiary of the federal COVID funds coming through Governor Little and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (IDHW), the #1 PUBLIC beneficiary of the COVID funds, are the two institutions that carried out the assault against the Chavoya family, who happens to also be some of my best friends. They did so by falsely reporting baby Cyrus’ condition and sending the police after them.
That night, being extremely concerned for baby Cyrus, the family and the entire injustice of the situation, I showed up at St. Luke’s Hospital where baby Cyrus was taken, demanding that he be given back to his family. After many demands, Meridian Police Officers arrested me and took me to the Ada County Jail. I must say, even though the Meridian Police Officers were completely in the wrong and acted to enforce the will of people grossly abusing the law, they were also lied to by officials from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (CPS). They were told that baby Cyrus was Failing to Thrive (FTT) and that he must be taken to the hospital for immediate care.
However, the evidence tells an entirely different story. Baby Cyrus was not taken to the hospital for care, he was forcefully taken from his parents and brought to the hospital to be immediately given to foster parents. Yes, this is correct, waiting there patiently in Meridian St. Luke Hospital were baby Cyrus’ new foster parent(s). Baby Cyrus was deemed “a healthy baby” by the medical staff who told the foster parent(s) to “leave promptly”. However, because of the commotion that I and those with me were causing outside the hospital by peacefully demanding Cyrus be given back to his parents, the foster parents had lost their will to take the baby and therefore Cyrus was transferred to Boise St. Luke’s Hospital instead.
Read these hospital reports from that night:
“Health and welfare identified a foster family but due to protesters surrounding the hospital regarding this case, it was felt that discharge with the family foster family from the emergency department was unsafe for all involved.”
“The sending physician handed us the pt [i.e. patient] secured in his car seat. She indicated the patient was in stable condition and requested that we leave promptly. She stated, “just go! This is a healthy baby with no interventions”…no acute life threats noted.”
The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (CPS) mis-represented the truth about baby Cyrus, causing this entire situation. Baby Cyrus was and has always been cared for and loved to the extreme by his parents and family. His mother was breastfeeding and he had been thriving since birth, even though recently he was not reacting well to solid foods (not atypical for his age). CPS with the help of Meridian Police Officers took Cyrus away from his main source of nutrition (his mother), which was very concerning to many people, including myself. I felt I had the ability to bring attention to the matter and did so at the hospital by demanding that baby Cyrus be returned to his nursing mother.
Because of this incident, I and my family have once again suffered under the hands of Ada County Prosecutors for an additional year. The CPS case against baby Cyrus’ parents was dropped, the criminal case against baby Cyrus’ aunt was dismissed, the criminal case against baby Cyrus’ mother was dropped, but the case against me continues to go on and is scheduled for trial this month. If convicted, I face heavy fines and up to 1 year in jail. The Ada County Chief Judge, in the middle of these proceedings, reassigned my case to Judge Annie McDevitt, the same judge who already threw the book at me once and sentenced me to 10 days in jail and a $3000 fine. Normally, Contempt of Court (COC) is a fine of a few hundred dollars with no jail time. So, it doesn’t take legal training to understand what she will try and do to me if I am convicted this time for helping baby Cyrus and his family.
It took about 6 days to get baby Cyrus back to his parents. The people at the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (CPS) and Judge Laurie Fortier did not like the public scrutiny they were receiving and gave baby Cyrus back after about a week of hundreds of people protesting at St Luke’s Hospital, the CPS office and the Judge’s home. A few weeks later, St. Luke’s Hospital sued Diego Rodriguez (Cyrus’ grandfather) and myself for saying negative things about them. They retained Holland & Hart, LLP a law firm that also represents Governor Brad Little, Scott Bedke and the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare.
Each week, going on 5 months now, Diego and I have received mountains of court documents. Holland & Hart is sending documents to my business, home and associates, by personal service companies, Gem County Sheriff’s deputies, US Postal Service, Fed-Ex and UPS. Some documents are too big to print so they send electronic files in packages to contain it all. Without exaggerating, I could have filled up a garbage dumpster to contain the amount of legal documents I have received from Holland & Hart. After speaking to an Idaho law firm (in hopes to defend myself) I was told that it would take at least 3 full time attorneys to respond to Holland & Hart’s litigation on this case. Because this case may continue for several years, it is not impractical to calculate that it would take hundreds of thousands of dollars to properly defend against the onslaught of litigation paid for by donations given to St. Luke’s Hospital.
I was informed by two very creditable, independent sources (one a high-ranking Ada County Official and the other an attorney who works with St. Luke’s hospital) that St. Luke’s CEO gave Holland & Hart a blank check to financially destroy Diego and I for speaking out against them in the role they played in taking baby Cyrus. So, rather than taking action to ensure that the situation with baby Cyrus does not happen again, instead, St Luke’s CEO, Chris Roth, has authorized hundreds of thousands of dollars of donations given to St. Luke’s Hospital to pay a law firm to financially destroy baby Cyrus’ family and those who stood with them. I don’t believe this is why people donate to St. Luke’s Hospital. I believe those who donate to St. Luke’s Hospital are under the impression that their donations are going to medically help children and other patients, not to fund a team of $600 per hour bureaucrat attorneys sent to even a political score.
To date, St Luke’s team of attorneys have used the courts to put a lien on my home, forcing me to sell it. I have been forced to liquidate all my assets except a few and my family and I have no idea when any of this will end. St. Luke’s CEO, Chris Roth, has given Holland & Hart a blank check to financially destroy Diego and I. Mis-using the courts, they have put us under constant threat of losing everything we have worked for our entire lives. Never once have I knowingly stepped inside a St. Luke’s medical facility in Idaho. Never have I or my family received any medical treatment from a St. Luke’s provider. I owe them nothing, yet they are trying to take everything. Anything I said about them (which was very minimal) I believe to be absolutely true, but they are using the courts to chill free speech and punish anyone who exposes them to the public. All of this, when they are the people who participated in stealing a baby from loving parents. Holland & Hart receiving open payments from St. Luke’s Hospital to destroy lives by abusing the court is a prime example of Judicial Terrorism (JT).
In the last few years, I have been criminally charged many times for defending what the Idaho State and U.S. Constitutions were designed to protect. I have had so many court hearings that I have lost track of the number. I have endured multiple trials and spent weeks in solitary confinement in the Ada County Jail. I have been forced to sell my home and assets, been fined thousands of dollars and have not been able to rightfully provide for my family. Now, in less than a week, I will be forced to defend myself again in trial against criminal trespass charges, facing a team of government attorneys, for peacefully standing outside St. Luke’s Hospital demanding that they give baby Cyrus back to his loving parents. If convicted, I will be fined thousands of dollars and will most likely spend months, if not a year in jail, away from my little family who need me, sentenced by Judge Annie McDevitt. I am certain if I am thrown in jail, by the time I get out, St. Luke’s Executives and Holland & Hart Partners with help from a few Ada County Judges, will do their best to take everything they can from me and strip my family from anything we have left.
Never once have I damaged any property, committed any violence or harmed any person. I have remained peaceful and stood for peaceful remedies even when forceful actions in defense may have been justified. I have stood as a barrier in protecting the very people who are harming me from those who believe that sometimes a way to right a wrong is not always peaceful. Everything I have done has been peaceful, even when police officers have falsely arrested me, abused me, my family and my friends and caused me to bleed by violence. Even when jailers have cruelly forced me to suffer for days. Even when judges have taken my income, wealth and stripped me of my rights. Even when the courts have allowed judicial terrorists to use the force of law to harass and financially assault my family. I pray every day to my Father in Heaven for the resolve to remain peaceful, but feel I have the justification to call upon my friends and defend myself by any means, even though I have no intention at this point to do so.
My only desire is to be left alone! But I cannot stand by when the rights to life, liberty and property are being violated all around me. It is my belief that if a man or woman smites me or my family once I should bear it patiently and not revile against them. If they smite me or my family a second time, I should not revile against them. But if they smite me or my family a third time I should bear it patiently as a testimony against them, but warn them, in the name of Jesus Christ, that they come no more upon me or my family, and if they do so, God will deliver them into my hands. However, if they repent at any time, I should forgive them. I have full faith in these words and intend to live by them.
I therefore warn; Blake Higley, Scott Bedke, Whitney Welsh, Chris Roth, Annie McDevitt, Erik Stidham, Brad Little and Keith Reynolds, in the name of Jesus Christ, that you come no more upon me or my family. I pray that I will be even more patient than I have been and hope that you will repent of your violations against the people of Idaho and myself. There is not one person that I hate or wish harm to come upon. I only hope that you will see that all men and women are equal to you and that you have no right to deprive anyone of the gifts that God has given them, no matter what authority or power you think you possess.

Oh yea, Bundy, the Lord has calleth me to telleth you that your “homeland” is calling (Florida) and they wanteth you back. Please follow the exit signs. Signed, Sane Idaho Citizens.
You deserve what’s coming to you
I hath received the same revelation. (Also this smells of Lafferty brothers)
So, you’re actively looking to be called a communist, Julie?
Why would you publish this? Clearly a threat.
What do you read in this that is a threat? Do you believe that Bundy _hasn’t_ been the recipient of State tyranny? Do you believe that he doesn’t have the right to voice complaint about a system which is trying to destroy him for pointing out their tyrannical actions?
Freedom is lost when people do NOT speak up. It is also lost when others bury their heads in the sand and pretend nothing is happening.
Indeed, and well stated, Blair. Mr. Bundy is well within his rights as a legal citizen of Idaho, to challenge Little and all those who support tyranny. Clearly he is being harassed by those he called out. More power to Mr. Bundy. Just keep it lawful..which he has done.
I agree with you Blair! Governor Little did have to much over reach on our businesses and our lives. The rest of the tyrants followed suit. He spoke up for many of us! Wish he was my Governor!
The threats are coming from corrupt agencies and politicians and if we the people do not stand up against this corruption from our court system and executive office, there will continue to be corruption at the highest levels of Idaho government. It’s time to connect the dots, do the research, look deeper into issues that are being exposed.
No man in the history of the Earth has been persecuted as much as Ammon Bundy, and he will nail himself to the cross on a daily basis to prove it!
This statement has to be satire, or just incredible, willful ignorance. My bet is on the latter.
What a shock. Another pathetic plea for attention from this little man.
Take a look at this people: If not quelled, this has the potential to be yet another Ruby Ridge in Idaho. There are many very large egos at stake. Ammon Bundy has stood for freedom throughout.
It is time for all to stand down:
It is time for St. Lukes to stand down, to drop the lawsuits.
It is time for any law enforcement to stand down, to stop the aggression.
It is time for Government Officials, Judges and Attorneys to stand down.
Stand down, move on, all Idahoan’s have been hurt by these actions. You all work for the Taxpayer and the Taxpayers do not want their employees to show the heavy hand of control, the Taxpayer wants you to use your heads for the benefit of all concerned.
This is not a time for action and you probably wouldn’t like the results if you made Ammon a Martyr.
It’s Time for Peace, It’s Time for Calmness.
Ammon Bundy tries to defend Freedom, at minimum this needs to be congratulated.
Be reminded of The Rotary’s Four Way Test:
1.) Is it the truth?
2.) Is it fair to all concerned?
3.) Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4.) Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Stand Down Idaho, Stand Down St. Lukes, do what is honorable and correct.
Thank you – Perfectly stated. The witch hunt has got to stop. The corruption in Idaho government agencies, the courts, and law enforcement, is unbelievably despicable. They attack, arrest and sue Idahoans simply for exercising our right to protest against tyrants. These corrupt agencies and courts don’t just sue, they are determined to totally financially destroy anyone of us who goes against their rules. Case in point is Sarah the mom arrested by dumb police for being at a park during an “illegal unconstitutional” lockdown. Her defense cost her a fortune even though her case was dismissed!
Stand down Idaho and take these words to heart.
“My only desire is to be left alone! But I cannot stand by when the rights to life, liberty and property are being violated all around me.”
“However, if they repent at any time, I should forgive them. I have full faith in these words and intend to live by them.”
No matter your opinion of Mr. Bundy, he has been bullied unjustly by a tyrannical government. He’s peacefully protested (as is his right and all of our rights) to peacefully protest unfair, unconstitutional and tyrannical actions by government agencies and officials. But the government is for the government, not the people and we have some BIG problems we have to solve before our country is no more.
Amen. Bundy has done so much to help others and go against that
which is evil in the country. Now those that do evil are exposing themselves
for who they really are and what they stand for.
I feel sorry for those that think evil is good and good is evil. God’s
judgment is coming.
You can’t spend your life touting civil disobedience then cry foul when repercussions start coming down on you. The best thing that could happen to Bundy is someone get him the help he needs.
Help, attention, pat on the back. Whatever it is called. He obviously needs help.
Sir, Mr. Bundy and his friends are in good company. As I recall, we just recently celebrated a holiday dedicated to the famous civil disobedience organizer, Martin Luther King Jr.
The right to petition government for redress of grievances is the right to make a complaint to, or seek the assistance of, one’s government, without fear of punishment or reprisals. The right can be traced back to the Bill of Rights 1689, the Petition of Right (1628), and Magna Carta (1215)
Unless we stand up for our rights, we will have none.
Your attitude proves that some people are happy being chattel, Mr. Flintstone.
What a crybaby.
Wow.What a big man you are to call someone a crybaby.That took a lot of thought.
This guy is a delusional domestic terrorist who embarrasses this state over and over.
A citizen who peacefully protests and does not harm others is not a domestic terrorist. The only person who should be embarrassed is you. An individual who doesn’t know the definition of “domestic terrorist “.
“peaceful protest and no harm to others” LoL. If Lavoy Finicum were here I doubt he’d agree! But we can’t ask him, cause he’s dead, on Ammon Bundy’s behalf. All the claims that Ammon has done no harm and that he is a lawful, peaceful citizen are BS. He is responsible for ALL the harm done to citizens and public servants on his behalf. He has incited violence multiple times in multiple states including Idaho. He is the literal definition of a domestic terrorists.
John, arrogantly ignorant comments like this make me wonder if you are an agitator or just that dumb.
“If Lavoy Finicum were here I doubt he’d agree! But we can’t ask him, cause he’s dead, on Ammon Bundy’s behalf.”
Lavoy Finicum was murdered by a federal agent sniper (an actual domestic terrorist) that was hiding in a tree like a little bitch. Lavoy Finicum was drawing the fire from the van he and two other women were in that was being fired on by more cowardes federal agents (actual domestic terrorists) that blocked a road and caused them to swerve so they would not hit said cowards. Lavoy Finicum threatened nobody and never fired a weapon at any time. People like Lavoy Finicum, Ammon Bundy, and thousands of others that stand up for other people are the reason you get to sit on the fence and post stupid uneducated comments on the internet.
The rest of your comment is just plain stupid and ignorant. So keep sitting on the fence and making stupid comments, but if you are going to be slandering the name of people that have been murdered by tyrants at least get your information correct, you should be ashamed of yourself for making a comment like that.
Only a St. Luke’s donor or administrator would be so callous. They’re steeped in blood money – the COVID payouts – while they ignored real medicine. The vaccines never worked and the hospitals and government colluded to restrict working treatments (ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine). The truth comes out more and more every day exposing the lies. And now we get to watch as healthy people die from the spike proteins ravaging their circulatory systems causing heart attacks and death.
St Luke’s CEO does not anyone to learn of the collusion between the hospitals and CPS, H&W dept, and Ada county police. This is the real truth Ammon and Diego exposed after Baby Cyrus was unlawfully kidnapped for no real medical emergency
Who do you think was behind the kidnapping? Why was outspoken Bundy supporter Diego’s family targeted? Connect the dots, and follow the money trail! It leads to all the people who are attacking Ammon.
Exactly. The corruption runs deep. Follow the money.
“Never once have I damaged any property, committed any violence or harmed any person. . . . .”
Hey, AB? Some of us still remember Malheur.
Curious what your recollection is, then. There was no property damage and the only death came at the hand of Federal agents in the murder of an unarmed man on the way to meet with the Sheriff. Bundy was acquitted of all charges.
My recollection was hazy so I researched it. There was significant damage to the public (yours and mine) property and the anarchists settled for $78K, That was a fraction of the cost of repairs.
The “unarmed man” died after trying to smash though a federal checkpoint, and he died reaching into his jacket for a handgun in his shirt pocket while trying to wade through the snow at the surrounding police. There isn’t a police force in the world that would not have taken that shot.
The only reason Ammon was acquitted is because one Jurist refused to find him guilty no matter the evidence presented. The other 11 said he was guilty as hell.
And there was significant property damage. Repairs and cleaning alone to 1.7 Million. Then there was the environmental damage of them relieving themselves into trenches and so forth, the loss of vital records and the equipment that was used as target practice.
Our recollections are very, very clear.
You seem to forget that there were indictments of 2, an FBI agent and deputy Sheriff, for Mr Finicum’s murder. So far, no trial. Evidence of this provided by the Malheur DA convinced a grand jury of this. Some of you who know absolutely nothing about this evidence continue to picture Me Funicum as the aggressor. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Let’s put the heavy boot of the gestapo on your neck and see how much you cry! I think we need another civil war in this country and it would be my honor to fight along side Amon. GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!
Wow, I didn’t know the liberal wrecking crew had inserted themselves into commenting on the Dispatch
When people stop thinking the government is tyrannical, you then become a part of the hive. Brad Little is worthless. The CEO of St is a piece of cow dung. End of story.
So, the “liberal wrecking crew” has no right to make their voices heard? Only Bundy and his supporters are afforded that “God given right?”
The Bundy family and friends have suffered enough. Drop all the charges and let them live their lives .
Yes, our governments (State and Federal) have descended into tyranny. This is obvious EVERYWHERE. But, since we live in a still somewhat peaceful and prosperous society, not enough will be done in time. Just like every other civilization in the past, it will “suddenly” implode, become violent, and we’ll lose our prosperity. But, it’s never sudden. There are always years and years of slow decay. I admire people like Bundy who are brave and moral and who fight even when everyone says they’re crazy. Sorry you’ve been persecuted – I hope the best for you and your family and that you can live in peace.
I believe this exact thought process. We are headed for some dark times unless we do something (think Reset).
Bundy is being targeted because he exposed the lawlessness of the power structure – Governor Little, establishment Republicans, Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, and Satan Luke’s Hospital. The Bundy haters don’t seem to understand the degree to which lawlessness has overtaken government at federal and state levels, even here in “conservative” Idaho. You’re next. Do you think you’re going to be spared a boot on your neck because you go along to get along and don’t stick out like Bundy? No, you’re next.
It is time to end all Corporations and Admiralty Courts and return to our American Common Law Courts where Justice can prevail! The real criminals in all of this mess are the LEO’s who do not protect and serve the people but enforce law; the corrupt CEO of a Corporation [for profit] which is no longer about healthcare but supporting theft of babies through our employees that are unelected in the CPS money machine of child trafficking and the corrupted Governor and his goons that use the media to promote lies and falsehoods against the people.
I appreciate hearing Ammon’s side of his story vs. the media which we know will never be truthful.
Ammon, please change your status from U.S. Citizen and become an American on the Land and Soil! Help restore our American Government as it was designed! Your fight against the Admiralty courts is noble but will not be successful. B.A.R. attorneys work for the British, the courts and thirdly the client…not Americans. These courts [judges and prosecutors] receive funds for every conviction which is why they brag about their success rate! They all get a cut of the action! They have a separate set of books to track the funds which are applied to their pensions. It’s a rigged game. Don’t be stubborn!
I want the best for patriots who fight for freedom and so do you! Come home and be free of these crooks! They don’t care about any of us and only until we take charge will they change their tune and quickly.
Thanks for standing up for we little people, Ammon.
These detractors complaining about your civil disobedience no doubt are cheerleaders for COINTELPRO sticking it to MLK.
These are the tactics being used by corrupt institutions now, just ask Tim Eyman. The same thing is being perpetrated against anyone who stands up to this corruption of the law. Since the state has bottomless pockets, they bankrupt their political enemies with frivolous lawsuits. You may not like some of these folks but what they are standing up to should open your eyes to the corruption. If they can do it to them, they’ll do it to you…
As F. Bastiat puts it:
“Men naturally rebel against the injustice of which they are victims. Thus, when plunder is organized by law for the profit of those who make the law, all the plundered classes try somehow to enter — by peaceful or revolutionary means — into the making of laws. According to their degree of enlightenment, these plundered classes may propose one of two entirely different purposes when they attempt to attain political power: Either they may wish to stop lawful plunder, or they may wish to share in it.
Woe to the nation when this latter purpose prevails among the mass victims of lawful plunder when they, in turn, seize the power to make laws! Until that happens, the few practice lawful plunder upon the many, a common practice where the ‘RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MAKING OF LAW is limited to a few persons’. But then, participation in the making of law becomes universal. And then, men seek to balance their conflicting interests by universal plunder. Instead of rooting out the injustices found in society, they make these injustices general. As soon as the plundered classes gain political power, they establish a system of reprisals against other classes. They do not abolish legal plunder. (This objective would demand more enlightenment than they possess.) Instead, they emulate their evil predecessors by participating in this legal plunder, even though it is against their own interests.
It is as if it were necessary, before a reign of justice appears, for everyone to suffer a cruel retribution — some for their evilness, and some for their lack of understanding.
The conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder.”
Pretty much sums it up. People don’t live long enough to learn from their mistakes, and youth is too arrogant to learn from their grandparents.
What’s that old ‘ism…something like: “good times leave men weak, weak men create hard times, hard times leave men strong, strong men make good times” and round we go again.
What makes it worse is that parents don’t want their children to suffer what they did, and in protecting them from it, unintentionally ruin their kids and cause their great-grandchildren to inherit the whirlwind.
The Bundy’s need a legal defense fund that other patriots can chip in to support his fight. He is the one in the line of fire. The least we can do is support his court battle.
I fully agree. We can help.
I seem to agree and will say our politicians, government employees and the military are the enemy that has bankrupted us and stolen our freedoms and liberties. It isn’t Russia, China , Iran or North Korea that is destroying us.

There is some irony here between the “come no more upon me” weirdness, and the obvious willingness of so many commenters to fellate the author. If you were to try to novelize the state of the current American conservative movement, any decent editor would have to tell you to tone it down and stop being so silly and unbelievable.
Ammon Bundy is a terrorist and should be in prison.
Moral of the story: Don’t run again Brad Little or Scott Bedke for the governor or Lt. Governor. There is clearly a pattern here, “harass or sue” anyone that gets in your way. Looks a lot like Newsom’s California and Biden’s DC.
No more constitutional rights. Why would anyone support communism?
An absolute ruler who governs without restrictions, especially one who seized power illegally.
Ammon Bundy for Idaho Governor …..
Representing the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States of America …..
What a joke! This coming from a guy who got rolled out in a rolling chair.
Ammon, Ammon, Ammon. We do remember what you and your gang stole, destroyed, and who you threatened in Burns. Stop whining.
No better conservative fascist vermin than the dead ones. No better Bundy than a DEAD one.
