Jon Ritzheimer To Question Informant Mark McConnell In upcoming Harassment Hearing

He'll be under oath and I look forward to finally being able to ask this guy some questions ...



Phoenix Arizona

Mark McConnell who was ordered to stop the harassment of a popular activist out of Arizona, has decided to fight the injunction (Restraining Order) that he was served with on Christmas Eve, and will now face  questioning by Jon Ritzheimer in an upcoming public hearing in Phoenix, Arizona.

Mr. Ritzheimer who filed a police report after being assaulted by McConnell at a Pheonix eatery this past October, says he looks forward to questioning Mark McConnell under oath when this goes before a Judge.

islamI have some questions for Mark McConnell concerning his role as an informant and if that role includes threatening me while I’m having dinner – says Ritzheimer.  If this guy is still on the payroll I think I have a right to know, especially if he is going to approach me with a weapon and challenge me to a fight.  Is he following me around Phoenix in an ongoing FBI effort to implicate me in some kind of wrong-doing or is he just harassing me because he enjoys being a bully?  He’ll be under oath and I look forward to finally being able to ask this guy some questions …

It is not lost on the activist community whom often refer to themselves as “Patriots,” that Mark McConnell and those who follow him have targeted anyone who would criticize the – self appointed border guard turned informant – for his role in the takedown and murder of LaVoy Finicum,  and  arrest of respected activist Ammon Bundy and others during the Malheur Refuge Adverse Possession outside of Burns, Oregon last winter.

McConnell and the men and women who empowered and encouraged him in some instances to become an informant, are quick to go “full blown assassin” on any Soccer Mom, Grandmother, Veteran, friend, or family member that is even slightly critical of  Mr. McConnell and his part-time job with the FBI.

It’s like these people have a spy watching every thread, says a stay at home mom of 3 from Wisconsin;

I started following the story this past Winter and have no connection to a Militia, or border group or really any of the people involved — I just thought it was an interesting story.  When McConnell was outed during the trial, I left a comment in the thread of one of the Oregon outlets that was covering the case, and simply said I wasn’t shocked that he was an informant because he didn’t get arrested when everyone else did back in January .. I was immediately attacked, and the language was so frightening I immediately deleted my comment.

Our Wisconsin Mom of 3 isn’t the only one who found herself reaping a verbal lashing from Team McConnell; hundreds of people logged complaints against the  “Arizona Informant Network” when Louis Author the founder of Veterans on Patrol based in Phoenix Arizona, made “barely veiled death threats” against an outraged public during a series of live Facebook rants shortly after McConnell was exposed.

Ritzheimer sees McConnell’s in person physical threat against him as a next step in the evolution of this new breed of Border Bullies that feel they have some sort of self appointed high-ground to police, harass, and intimidate people that don’t agree with their agenda.

Jon Ritzheimer will face Mark McConnell in an open to the public hearing on January 5th @ 8:30 am in the Phoenix Municipal Courthouse.

    amen Jon!!!!! God be with you….

    I can’t wait until Ritzheimer is sentenced on May 8. He’s getting bolder again and he might just be dumb enough to try and start something at Gold Butte National Monument before he goes off to prison.

    During the revolutionary war, the British, the legitimate and recognized government over the colonies, paid handsomely to many informants to spy on, to deceive, to trick, to lie, to betray, the colonists who were declaring their rights against a tyrannical government. People have to choose which side has the moral high ground. For an informant, it is the side that pays the best money.

  • plainsite

    I remember Shawna Cox, who had nothing against McConnell, saying that she rode in the same vehicle with him after being arrested. All he could talk about was his $60k Jeep that was left behind. She said he was obnoxious and it became obvious to her that he was an informant. I mention the Jeep story because for informants, it is all about the money. The feds pay well, and you can feel good about it because, well, after all, the government is always right and anybody who goes against the government, is always wrong.

    God be with you Jon!!! Blow him out of the water!!! Someone has to be held accountable for the murder of LaVoy….

    That fact that Mark was undercover at the refuge is not really a big deal, these guys had nothing to hide. The problem is the lies and threats he made. He is the lower than a snake and he has to look at himself in the mirror every day for the rest of his life. Loser…..

  • Mary Britton

    get his ass Jon, its about time he goes down.

  • Great article. McConnell has a team of internet “fluffers” who troll the deepest, darkest corners of the internet looking to nudge, insult, undermine and threaten any and all critics. So too, in the flesh in AZ as when it was testified in court that McConnell was on the FBI payrole, “Lewis Arthur” (the guy who visited malhuer in a psy op to create a division and chaos) threatened the lives of anyone who would criticize McConnell. “Team McConnell” is the proper terminology, there are a bunch of them who work in symbiosis as an viral parasite to the Militia, patriot community and I guess soccer mom’s from Wisconsin.

    All the charges against the Bundy’s were Trumped Up. The prosecution had nothing, and the jury recognized this, and were acquitted.
    If the Feds want your land, or anything else, you suddenly have charges made against you.
    Justice is not being served, this whole thing is a land grab, and the patriots are still in jail after being acquitted.
    With 15 informants, some identified, and most not identified, something smells bad about this whole case.
    Guilty until proven innocent is the new norm.
    If Mc Connell had done what was described in the complaint, he should be in prison.

    • Bill Ludlow

      Lol, you haven’t studied this at all. We The People already owned the land the Bundys were freeloading on. There’s been no land grab, but the welfare ranchers did try to get away with using it as if it were their own land.

      • James Fenton III

        Hows it feel to be a troll?
