Is Ammon Bundy a Criminal or Patriot?

It all depends on which conventional media you are reading.

Consider the following facts:

  1. Ammon Bundy was acquitted by three courts, including the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals of all charges stemming from his protest of federal government overreach.
  2. Between the 1870’s and 1890’s the success of the Bundy family along with tens of thousands of fellow ranchers and farmers in the arid American West that convinced Congress to create the Bureau of Reclamation and other environmental agencies. So why has this pioneer legacy been largely snubbed out by these agencies as they moved from being collaborative to controlling, and yes even combative and condemning over four decades?
  3. The ongoing “homesteading” of those agencies on state lands is clearly unconstitutional as the U.S. Constitution proclaims “all federal property in a state must be purchased from the state by the Consent of the Legislature of that State. This never happened.
  4. Why does the federal govt. claim control of 62% of Idaho’s land along with its bullions in untapped natural resource wealth? Idaho does not need unconstitutional hand holding by the Feds when it comes to our land.
  5. Current press coverage describes Ammon Bundy as a militant when he has never been armed at any protest he attended. He is also not Antigovernment and is in-fact for good government. Neither is he a Radical but instead is a good solid conservative. They say he’s a Criminal, I ask by what measure? He was arrested several times at the capital for protesting Governor Little’s illegal, unconstitutional Covid emergency order. Idaho law says if an emergency order was to be continued, the governor must convene the legislature after 60 days which did not happen even after being reminded by the our legislators to do so. What kind of example does our governor set when he doesn’t obey our laws or constitution.
  6. Ammon Bundy was arrested for his civil disobedience while attempting to protect Baby Cyrus from the clutches of Idaho’s Child Protective Services who were in process of taking him into custody from his parents. Because of this protest St. Luke’s released Cyrus quietly while acknowledging they could do nothing to help Cyrus who is now thriving at home.
  7. The defamation lawsuit brought by Dr. Pate the $18 million dollar a year administrator for St. Luke’s hurt feelings is civil not criminal.
  8. What keeps Ammon going even with all the obstacles he has and is still facing is his opposition to clear cut government overreach, injustice and inefficiency. It is interesting to make note that the Nevada Judge declared the federal governments case “Shocked the conscience of the court and “violated the universal sense of Justice.” For more info google search Larry Wooten a BLM employee and Dan Love a BLM agent and you will be appalled at what you read.
  9. Ammon Bundy wants to keep Idaho attached to its traditional and constitutional roots and lands, as well as open the doors to its future for present and upcoming generations. He will Keep Idaho IDAHO.
  10. It is the courage that Bundy displays which is very rare and there are few in our political arena with his fortitude, fidelity to the law, liberty and a passion to observe love for all people that if elected will make him an ideal governor for Idaho.
  11. Please go to for more information as he has the courage and stamina to make positive changes for Idaho’s future.

Criminal – as can only be determined by the Only One with the authority to determine what constitutes good and evil.

According to Him, Ammon Bundy is an idolator!

Idolatry is not so much about statues as it is statutes, such as what one considers, promotes, or swears to as the supreme law of the land.

There can only be one supreme law: 1) The Constitution, per Article 6, or 2) Yahweh’s moral law, per the Bible.

To futilely attempt to meld the two is to be as double minded as were the Israelites with Elijah on Mt. Carmel: Why halt ye between two opinions? If We the People (a contemporary form of Baal) be God, serve them. If Yahweh be God, serve Him!

For more, see Chapter 3 “Article 3: The Preamble: We the People vs. Yahweh” at

Then Chapter 9 “Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land.”

The media I look at is the Associated Press (AP) which has the following articles: July 1, 2021 – Ammon Bundy convicted in trespassing trial; March 16, 2022 -Bundy gets probation, no jail in 2nd trespassing conviction; and April 7, 2022 – Antigovernment activist Bundy sentenced to 10 days in jail (contempt of court).

This should help you to understand how corrupt and far gone the system is. I have witnessed Ammon being arrested for being in a public building during operating hours. FOIA documents confirming Ammon is to arrested should he show up to attend a Capital Clarity meeting. Yes , because he has not stayed home and obeyed the government he is a target.

And in each case Bundy was protesting in support of the rights of the people. #1 Baby Cyrus was taken away from his parents for missing an appointment? Yet the hospital deemed it necessary to send the police on a welfare check. Bundy was supporting the parents rights. #2 “After a 4 day trial, the jury decided that my presence in the Lincoln Auditorium, during OPEN hours, was a criminal act. The precedence this sets is very dangerous for anyone who may disagree with the presiding officers of the legislature,”… All meetings are considered OPEN to the public. #3 Same thing as #2.

Too many times secret deals are made behind closed doors that the people need to know about. Judge David Manweiler said he considered adding jail time (#2), but he struggled to find a sentence that fit the crime and seriousness of it (or lack of), which he considered both charges to be on the “low end of the scale.” All three so called crimes were misdemeanors. A traffic ticket is a misdemeanor. Bundy should never have been arrested for any one these things.

This is a great article thank you! I can see the evil intentions of government, lobbyist, elitist wants a ignorant society. Thank you Mr Bundy!
