IN NEVADA: Men arrested for being present at the 2014 Bundy Protest in Bunkerville, Nevada, are accusing the United States Government of purposefully withholding discovery from the media because they don’t want the public to see who pushed for the arrests, and just how weak the Government’s case against them really is. Judge Gloria Navarro, who refused to give any of the prisoners being held in Nevada a fair pre-trial release, is suspected of basing her opinion on a completely bogus narrative conceived by the Government, without even looking at the facts in the case. The defendants in this case feel she has a political agenda that aligns her decision with the man who helped her attain the bench, Harry Reid.
“It serves her political masters to have the discovery shrouded in secrecy, a source has told me; ” You would be hard pressed to find anyone close to this case that will tell you it wasn’t just by chance that Navarro was chosen to preside over this trial.”
The fact Judge Gloria Navarro was recommended by SEN. Harry Reid and appointed to the Bench by President Barrack Obama, moved Attorneys for Cliven Bundy to ask Navarro to recuse herself this past Spring.
After receiving and viewing a good portion of the “discovery” these men now say they finally understand why the Government wants to keep it all a big secret, and believe the information, once made public, will raise many questions about just why they are being held without chance of being released before their trial.
According to one prisoner, the discovery proves their ongoing incarceration is nothing short of a “political lynching” designed specifically to create the perception they are all guilty of committing a violent act so the Judge can claim justification for keeping them behind bars.
While they cannot divulge any portion of what they are seeing in the discovery they certainly have no court ordered “gag” preventing them from voicing their reaction to it.
The public needs to remember why Bundy Ranch happened in the first place, said one prisoner. We didn’t all just show up in Bunkerville one day because we were mad about a cattle round-up. The facts are the same as they were in April of 2014. The BLM was acting aggressively toward the Bundy family. They had snipers trained on them, they reacted violently and beat a man for taking photos of them, they set up an illegal free speech area, they were killing cattle and burying them on “so called” public lands; and despite numerous warnings to “back off” by Clarke County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, Governor Brian Sanddoval, and plenty of other State and Federal Officials, Daniel P Love escalated his militarized response and refused to to use diplomacy over violence.
This accusation by the prisoner is backed by numerous statements made by both Gillespie and Governor Sandoval, during and after the time of the protest. In a statement made to the Las Vegas Sun, Gillespie said he warned BLM Special Agent In Charge Daniel P Love, that he had lost control of the situation and would only escalate it to violence if he did not stop the round-up. Love refused the advise of both the Sheriff of Clarke County and Governor of the State of Nevada. Many people who know Daniel P. Love say his over inflated ego would not allow him to heed that warning.
“I think if anybody would look at how they handled the protesting with the use of Tasers and police dogs, anyone who had been in policing would question those tactics,” he said. “And I believe that led to the heightened interest and escalating the situation.” ~ Douglas Gillespie
“Federal Prosecutor Steven Myhre would now like the court and the public to believe that Dan Love and fellow BLM Agents are all victims of propaganda, and that the BLM did nothing to provoke a visit from an outraged Bundy Family which resulted in a video release exposing their aggression” said one attorney working on the case;
When the family approached the BLM that day, Ammon Bundy was tazed three times, a recovering cancer patient and grandmother, was violently thrown to the ground, and a pregnant girl was threatened by the release of a dog. That video is far from propaganda, it’s the truth, and it speaks volumes about the mindset of the BLM. Evidence will clearly show that the Bundy’s were right about the BLM killing cattle and burying them on public lands; and that, coupled with numerous other violent incidents perpetrated by the BLM, is what caused the escalation in Bunkerville in 2014. To say that the BLM and Dan Love are all just victims is simply not true. Click here to view the video.
There has also been an unexplained number of plea deals connected to this case, and at least three men are now trying to back out of their deals after seeing the discovery.
Jerry Delemus who recently took a plea deal on the case has since changed his mind about that decision saying that he was forced into the deal by the FBI. Delemus, who is married to State Rep Susan Delemus of New Hampshire, now says he buckled under extreme pressure after the FBI threatened that they would go after the men who accompanied him to Nevada if he refused to take the deal. One of those men was his Son.
When Delemus asked Judge Gloria Navarro if he would be committing perjury when he lied under oath to say he was guilty, her response was, “Not necessarily.” So the Judge presiding over this case encouraged a defendant to lie under oath? So much for the dignity of the Nevada Bench.
Much time has passed since the 2014 protest and public memory may have faded, but the fact still remains; Sheriff Doug Gillespi told Cliven Bundy and the American People on the day of the protest that the BLM was leaving and the cattle would now be freed. When the Bundy Family, and the American People, accompanied by the media came to get the cattle, they were met with the threat of being shot by Daniel P. Love and his BLM. Was Daniel P. Love once again defying the orders of the County Sheriff when the people approached that gate? We think that’s exactly what the “discovery” will show.
According to an official statement by a BLM spokesperson in a report documented by E&E LLC the BLM narrative is very clear;
“In a highly volatile situation with heavily armed antagonists, Love negotiated a peaceful resolution,” said Celia Boddington, who was serving as BLM’s assistant director for communications at the time and is now retired. “When all is said and done, he was the person most responsible for ensuring that nobody got killed that day. While many are eager to play Monday morning quarterback, history will judge him kindly.”
In reality Daniel P. Love was forced to leave the premises by a Deputy Sheriff at the gate after refusing a direct order to do so several times. Daniel P. Love said he was not leaving and that Ammon Bundy was not taking those cattle. He said all of this after Sheriff Douglas Gillespie had already told a cheering crowd that he had ordered the BLM to vacate the premises and the Bundy’s naturally went to get their cattle, or at least what was left of them. Revised history may very well remember Daniel P. Love kindly, but those who stared down the barrel of his gun that day and know the truth, will certainly not.
