Many questions remain on the issue of LaVoy Finicum’s shooting, and on the issue of FBI “justifications” of what many have noted was an ambush and pre-planned political execution. Sibel Edmonds and Peter Collins of Boiling Frogs Post discuss some of the questions including why the FBI sought to stop the Bundys and Finicum on a roadway instead of at the refuge, why the order was given to turn off body-cameras, and why there were snipers in the trees and up the slope if it was a “traffic stop.” Was there a pre-determined intent here, to keep the Harney County group from speaking to and inspiring other counties locally to take action against BLM/Federal corruption that they were uncovering? State of the Nation explores further. David Knight of the Alex Jones show discusses the cell phone video of the shooting and comments on the shooting: This is a war of our government against the American people–we need to wake people up!
Can we as a nation stay on this case and continue to seek and obtain justice–can we begin to openly discuss and reveal FBI cover-ups and lies, government acts of aggression, encroachment, and corruption, and can we make it clear as David Knight notes that “they are the criminals”–can we turn this injustice around in other words? Can we begin to reclaim and restore the US to a state of real peace, lawfulness, and justice?
Sibel Edmonds aims to continue following the case, so please send any further information her way–links to Boiling Frogs Post below.
The U.S. Federal Government is no stranger to adding insult to injury. In fact, doing so has become their signature MO in practically everything they touch. Such is the case with first carrying out the assassination of patriot LaVoy Finicum, and then covering up the cowardly murder.
There is no question that the FBI, working in tandem with the Oregon State Police, fastidiously planned out the execution of Finicum. All of the highest integrity evidence indicates that his killing was a calculated hit on one of the greatest heroes of the American patriot movement. The FEDs truly felt they had no choice but to snuff out a powerful voice of the coming 2nd American Revolution. Visit State of the Nation for more, with links to videos and other articles.
Peter B. Collins presents: Todd Macfarlane & Sibel EdmondsHours after the news conference where Oregon investigators declared the January 26 roadblock killing of LaVoy Finicum “justified”, Sibel Edmonds joined Peter B. Collins in a conversation with Todd Macfarlane, who had been representing the Finicum family. Unlike the hand-picked reporters at the briefing, we raise major questions about the justifications and review important details of the additional video and audio recordings released today, as well as the stunning revelation that 2 FBI agents lied to investigators (and 3 other agents backed them up) repeatedly in denying they had fired their weapons, leading to a fresh investigation of FBI wrongdoing by the FBI. Audio clip here.
LaVoy Finicum’s daughter: Stand with me, stand up for America, for the Constitution (2 minutes):
David Knight of the Alex Jones Show/includes cell phone video from inside LaVoy’s car:We have to stand up to the violence the Government inflicts on us…we’ve got to educate the public.
Kris Anne Hall: Taking back the Narrative/an older post, before the Finicum shooting/at time of the Malheur Refuge occupation–The ultimate arbiters of the Constitution are the States themselves…it is time for us to understand the proper role and function of our government…. It is time to know the facts, the time to stand for the truth. Do we want an unlimited Federal Government, or do we want to stand for what is right? It is time to defend the Republic….We are the holders of power, we are the owners of our property–and when a government dictates property, we are nothing but slaves.
Re-posted to share, with many thanks, from Our Greater Destiny (links below). Please visit there for updates and many wonderful and empowering posts on an ongoing basis. I wanted to include Doreen’s message below this press release as well, it is a call to all of us to work on empowering positive change “through intention and focused attention, amplified through unity.”
Many do not realize that in the US today, many are facing Political Persecution for their views, words, and actions of dissent, claiming Constitutional rights, exposing corruption, and speaking out against injustice. Individuals/activists covertly targeted in their own neighborhoods with EMF neuroweaponry in undisclosed DoD/DOJ/Intel programs are being turned into open-air and at-home prisoners in electronic concentration camps. Citizens identifying themselves as patriots fighting land-grabs and exposing corruption in the West are shot, arrested, consigned to the extreme punishment of solitary confinement, as Jeannette Finicum notes. The prisons hold others who spoke out for their Second Amendment right to bear arms, such as Francis Schaeffer Cox, or of their intent to expose corporate corruption, such as Thomas David, House of Deegan. There are many other injustices. Thousands of youth have been incarcerated for minor “crimes” such as being in the possession of a few ounces of marijuana. Whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning are subjected to extreme punishment and incarceration instead of being rewarded for their courage and integrity. Meanwhile, billions are poured into Military and Surveillance operations, and daily chem trails dispersing deadly heavy metals, toxins, and nanotechnologies rain down on us, while DARPA’s EMF and HAARP experiments try to mind-control us into passive docility and compliance with Governmental edicts with ELF transmissions. How do we turn any of this around?
Our spiritual leaders infallibly call us to stand in our own power of good, as Doreen Agostino advises. This year, 2016, is a special year, according to all astrological readings, a year of shifting energies, change, and completion. We have great spiritual power as individuals, just by virtue of our consciousness, our conscience, our willingness to spread ripples of positive, rather than negative energy into the world, just through intention and silent awareness, let us use it.
NEWS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Cherilyn Bacon Eagar
for the LaVoy Finicum family
March 8, 2016, St. George, UT. — LaVoy Finicum’s wife Jeanette Finicum released this statement at a news conference in St. George, Utah:
The news conference held earlier today in Bend, Oregon to release the report of the investigation regarding my husband’s death was to be expected. No surprises. The purpose of that announcement was for state and federal agencies to continue to lay the foundation of their legal case.
However, they also continue to bring forward selective evidence. As in all such situations there is another side to this story. We will provide a more thorough analysis at a follow up news conference tomorrow and will be taking questions at that time. Meanwhile, we continue to maintain my husband’s innocence.
According to the news story from Portland Oregon: “Officials investigating the death of Robert [LaVoy] Finicum are ready to release results” of the fatal shooting “during a Jan. 26 traffic stop while trying to arrest the rancher and others involved in the takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge.”
As a family, along with our lawyers, we deny this statement. This was not a traffic stop. It was an ambush with a roadblock placed on a blind curve along a lonely stretch of highway. I am told that in law enforcement and prosecuting circles this is called a “Deadman’s blockade,” and is designed to allow a “kill stop” which is illegal.
The news story continues: “The FBI said Finicum was shot after reaching for a gun…”. We reject that statement. The FBI’s aerial video was of poor quality, edited and provided no audio. Our family asserts that he was shot with both hands up, he was not reaching for anything at the time of the first shot. He was walking with his hands in the air, a symbol of surrender. When he reached down to his left hip he was reacting to the pain of having been shot.
I can hardly believe that a team of qualified law officers could look at the facts in this case and say that no criminal laws were violated.
How could they have reached this decision in the face of evidence that clearly shows intent to kill my husband?
We have talked with an independent investigator who has stated that the “video proves a set up assassination.”
Many people, including my lawyers, have tried to prepare me for this—-“be strong”, “accept this with peace” —–but I don’t think anything could prepare me to accept what is so clearly a finding that challenges the Constitution that my husband died defending.
I know that under the Constitution the men who shot my husband to death, while he was surrendering, are entitled to due process of law—-but they are not entitled to walk free and not have to face the same legal process that is a barrier to you or to me.
They shot my husband, they left him lying in the snowbank—no medical assistance, no charges, no arraignment, no preliminary hearing, no indictment, and no trial by a jury, — and should they just walk free? It just is not right.
The consolation I have is that hundreds of thousands of Americans have seen and know the truth and believe as I do that my husband was murdered “intentionally, deliberately and with malice.”
My lawyer has assured me that we will seek justice in a different court, under different circumstances—and I look forward to the day when these men do face a jury that is unbiased enough to return a fair verdict.
After the Finicum funeral, rallies spontaneously began to organize in many states. The organizers counted, possibly as many as 300 rallies took place throughout the country, in every state but Rhode Island.
It has been asked how this movement got such momentum so quickly. When Americans heard the details of this story and how these American patriots who have no criminal record and who have stood on the same interpretation of the US Constitution as Justice Scalia have been treated, the actions of law enforcement and the FBI have “shock [ed] the conscience.” Our Supreme Court has set as the standard guideline for practices of law enforcement that are unacceptable to our society, as those that “shock the conscience”.
A Deadman’s blockade with the intent to kill “shocks the conscience.” Shooting to kill with both hand up “shocks the conscience.”
Violating the 8th Amendment – cruel and unusual punishment – by placing Americans with no criminal records, who are apparently guilty of defending the US Constitution and the overreach of federal authorities, into solitary confinement and then removing their constitutional right to bear arms are two examples of how elected and appointed officials in the court system, legislative bodies and in law enforcement are violating the Constitution they swear to uphold.
The Supreme Court has referred to solitary confinement as being “violently insane.” The court has recognized that solitary confinement tortures our human brain and diminishes our God given strength to overcome obstacles.
Solitary confinement is a form of torture that often drives prisoners mad.
Last year a Supreme Court Justice wrote a concurring opinion that described the history of solitary confinement and said the practice bears a “peculiar mark of infamy” in its ability to shatter the minds and spirits of prisoners.
Who are we? We are outraged that men and women who have no criminal records and who posed no threat during the protest in Oregon are being treated as mere animals.
The American people are outraged at this inhumanity, this brutality and barbarism by the courts and law enforcement. It has created a new American awakening from both the Left and the Right. It “shocks our conscience.” And that is why around 300 rallies spontaneously organized in support of my husband’s assassination and these patriots who are being held as political prisoners.
Again, my lawyer has assured me that we will seek justice in a different court, under different circumstances—
We will be commenting on the FBI’s and Deschutes County press release tomorrow after we review their findings fully.
Rest in peace and glory Robert LaVoy Finicum.
From Doreen March 2016 is our opportunity to empower positive change through the Power of intention and focused attention, amplified through unity.
Scott Bennett of Truth Unite has posted a Project Camelot TV Network video interview with Victoria Sharp, the young 18-year-old singer in the car with LeVoy Finicum, Shawna Cox, and Ryan Payne on the trip to the town John Day where their car and the Bundys’ car were both stopped by the FBI and Oregon State Police in what has since been characterized as a planned ambush rather than the “routine traffic stop” of Mainstream Media reports. In this interview, Victoria Sharp notes that her earlier audio testimony that was widely broadcast earlier (posted about in earlier notes here) where she first relayed the information about LeVoy Finicum being shot unarmed, hands above head, laser spotlighting on car occupants, and the car being riddled with bullets both before his death and after (this before the FBI video was released) was identical to Shawna Cox’s recent account, although neither had spoken to the other before offering these witness accounts.
Scott Bennett offers a note below the Youtube video describing the situation currently and asking for donations. Excerpt: “Additionally we are encouraging Americans to either go to the funeral Friday for Robert LaVoy Finicum, or travel to Oregon to stand with and help protect the people in the wildlife refuge in order for them to leave safely. Otherwise, if Americans don’t stand up, these people may be shot in a matter of hours. Additionally, people are encouraged to send checks of any amount to Victoria Sharp and those protecting, feeding, clothing, and supporting them. Donations may be sent to: 23 Railroad Ave, #23, Danville, CA 94526 and will be given directly to Victoria and those standing with her up there to provide their basic food and support.
Finally, attorneys are encouraged to provide free legal advice and representation to Victoria and others there, and ensure that all legal actions and motions are filed to preserve their rights, the Constitution, and the redress of this evil perpetrated against them by the FBI, its contractor mercenaries (fresh from the oblivion of Iraq/Afghanistan), and corrupt politicians. If we don’t stand now, the next casualties may be you and your children. –Scott Bennett, 2LT U.S. Army Special Operations, Psychological Warfare Analyst (retired)”
BPEarthWatch, Dahboo 7, and Spiro on Youtube cover this and related stories, including focuses on BLM land grabs and states such as Utah working to retrieve recently-named Federal lands.
Jean at Co-Creating Our Future on Planet Earth also regularly posts videos and news stories and links on this and related issues. Judge Reports Lavoy Shot 9 Times posted there links to a news article and radio conversation at Regenesis Radio. (This article posts a letter from the people of Harney County addressed to the Provost Marshall of Oregon and embodying Judge Anna’s advice regarding the FBI (posted here earlier), asking for military intervention and aid in removing the foreign FBI agents in Harney County (in the employ, it notes, of French banking cartels/IMF and not US Government).
Update 1/29: Ron Johnson of Stranger Than Fiction News has posted a brief Youtube video questioning the veracity of the “unedited” FBI video released (referenced below). (Thanks to Jean of C0-Creating Our Future On Planet Earth for (re-)posting this video.) He notes possible edits in frames as scenes switch and also notes time stamp anomalies. The question being asked here is whether the FBI video was faked. This detailed article on False Flags by State of the Nation reminds us of recent Executive Orders and the NDAA and other legalities self-permitting the agencies of the Federal Government & DoD to engage in Psy Ops, “Perception Management” (tenets of which involve Untruthful Statements–Fabricating the Truth, Impression Management, Multi-Channel Support, Flexibility–in adjusting deception campaigns, and other manipulations) — are our perceptions being “managed” here? Please watch these two videos yourself (FBI video link below) and judge for yourself.
Kris Anne Hall reads from the famous 1775 Give Me Liberty or Give me Death speech of Patrick Henry, in discussing FBI actions in gunning down LaVoy Finicum, in her video podcast What I saw in the FBI Video linked below, where she notes there was no need for this shooting, that there was a clear set-up, and the deliberateness of these actions suggest that a message was being sent.
Reports from the refuge suggest there are a few of the group still there, let us pray there is no more violence and no more ambushes and standoffs and shootings, and they are kept safe, whether they stay or choose to leave.
The Complete, Unedited FBI Aerial Footage Video on the shooting of LaVoy Finicum can be found on Youtube at this link. Much can be seen, but much is obscured too, by the trees, the turning angles, and the distance. There is no audio. Much is made in current Mainstream Media coverage of his using one of his hands to reach down in his pocket, while the other remained in the air. A comment made at his family’s Facebook page for him suggests he was reaching to his chest or to the spot where he was shot by a second shooter from the side, which shooter can be seen in the video. Either way, it’s fairly clear his hands were in the air when he exited his vehicle. Mainstream media news suggests that he was reaching for a weapon, and includes FBI words to this effect, a notion disputed by eyewitnesses and others in the group who note his weapon was left at the refuge.
Rick Koerber of The Free Capitalist Project discusses eyewitness accounts, including words about the shooting from Ammon Bundy and Victoria Sharp, and the implications for America, liberty, and our dwindling freedoms: The Ambush and Murder of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum
Kris Anne Hall‘s commentary on this video, as a former prosecutor, where she notes the video poses more questions, and asks many relevant questions regarding the obvious ambush and unprovoked shooting:
Kris Anne Hall’s earlier conversation on the subject can be found in her previous podcast, where she offers her recommendations for news sites for real news (as opposed to Fox News)–two sites she recommends are Jason Stapleton’s radio/video show and Ben Swann’s Truth in Media:
It’s hard to know what any of us can do in this situation. But perhaps we can use our voice, to speak out, to express our feelings, to protest, much as we have in the deaths of Tamir Rice or Trayvon Martin or Freddie Gray or Sandra Bland, so many others. Please remember we have been and are still facing a media blackout on this subject–and are being subject to media stories that run counter to what we can see and hear for ourselves from video and eyewitness accounts.
