There Is No Silver Bullet to Securing Liberty

By: Ammon Bundy

Ammon Bundy

Too many liberty minded Americans fall for the idea that one plot or another is going to be the answer to keeping freedom alive in America. Whether it is Common Law, Convention of the States, State Nationalist, Grand Juries or getting a Patent on your property, the results are the same. They don’t work in a corrupt system! Let me explain why and what the true answer to securing liberty is.

Since the Bundy Ranch incident in 2014 I have met countless people that have expressed to me what they believe the solution to securing liberty is. On most occasions I try to learn from them and give them the time to explain the details of their findings and conclusions. It is always fascinating to understand what they are expressing. Most of these people are very intelligent and have spent decades researching and documenting what they believe to be the solution to liberty. They anxiously want me to listen and champion their cause to rally the people to implement their plan and take back the rights that have been lost. However, after ample time is given to understanding the basics of their solutions and plans I always ask them one question. A question that none of them have been able to answer. Each time I ask this question the reply is always, “I don’t know.” This question has never failed to deteriorate the possibility of success to every proposal I have heard. Let me explain.

20 years prior to the events in 2014 my father was fighting in the courts trying to secure his property rights. My family had been ranching in the Virgin Valley for nearly 140 years, 5 generations, since 1877 and we had established strong deeds registered with the state of Nevada. My great great grandfather & mother (on my grandmother’s side) were sent by Brigham Young to develop the area. With 120 degree weather and endless sink-sand forming the banks of the Virgin River my family struggled to level the fields and divert water to irrigate crops. I am sure they thought about giving up many times. There were other places that would make a much easier home to produce and live than the one they had settled in. However, driven by faith, grit, and determination, they developed that hot dry desert valley into an agriculture rich oasis. During these times of struggles they also ran cattle, sheep and horse along the foothills of the Bunkerville Mountains. Looking for ways to produce food they found several natural springs that allowed them to graze cattle & sheep even when the crops in the fields had failed. Over several generations my family developed these springs creating a network of watering troughs throughout a 30 mile span. My father has been tending these springs and raising cattle in this desert now for 77 years, scratching out a meager living, just enough to raise his family of 14 children.

Most of his adult life my father has had to fight the federal government over the use of the land that he and his forefathers developed. In my lifetime I have seen my father support and promote several elected representatives, help organize a cattlemen’s association, fund political groups to lobby for ranchers’ rights. I have seen him form teams of attorneys and even beg his fellow ranchers to unite and stand together before it was too late. I even experienced my father speak to hundreds of ranking federal bureaucrats that gave him a standing ovation at the completion of his words. I also recognized as a young man the hardship my father endured trying to find a solution to securing his rights and heritage, especially when he was dragged through the federal courts watching his livelihood slowly pulled from his hands while most of the other ranchers around him just gave up. Shortly after the federal courts ruled that he had no right to the land, my father wrote this in a notice to state officials.

“I fear that my stand is an endangerment to my life and the lives of my family members and will cause the destruction of my property rights by illegal acts of the agents of the United States. They have often attempted to paint me as a violent person when all I have done is stand up for my property rights. I have always conducted myself in a professional manner during this battle with words on paper. I take issue with anyone who would try to paint me as some wacko extremist. I do not advocate violence and only want a legal and peaceful conclusion to this issue and my rights protected. Therefore demand is hereby made that the above Nevada officials intervene and secure my 14th Amendment rights guaranteed in the Constitution and prevent an emergency which has the potential of causing the loss of me and my family’s life, liberty and property. The 1st Amendment guarantees me the right to redress my government. That is what I am doing. Respectfully submitted, Cliven D. Bundy, November, 1998.”

 

 

For over 20 years, each time federal agents would provoke my father by threatening his life or property, he would call on state and county officials to protect and resolve. Because federal agents could not provoke my father into reacting in violence, justifying his removal from the land, preparation to destroy the Bundy ranch in 2014 were made by officials from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), FBI, U.S. Attorneys Office, U.S. Fish & Wildlife, United States Forest Service (USFS) & National Park Service (NPS). In “Sensitive” government documents, officials admit that up to that point “Bundy himself is less prone to initiate or support violence”. They further admit that they did not know “Bundy’s threshold” or “precise trigger that would elicit a violent response,” “Nor are we able to detect what his actions would be to a direct threat.” However, “If pressed into a corner and faced with having to defend his property, family, or person, his actions may be hard to forecast.” In the official “Planning” documents of the imminent action against the Bundy family, a plan was laid out to vise-fully use excessive federal force to push Bundy “beyond his threshold” and either summon enough fear in Bundy to lose all “semblance of hope” and give up his claim on the land or leave him with no choice but to defend his family and property. The official plan states that; “It is important that Bundy realize that impound operations are imminent so he can develop a plan B.” Further it states that; this will give “Bundy time to really weigh his options, identify and organize key players, and decide how he want[s] to handle the possibility of violence.” Federal officials further reveal in this plan that; “While this planning time presents a double edge sword for our LOE operations, it is in our best interest to face off against a more stable and measured Bundy contingent, vice a gaged and reactive one.” It is evident that the official federal plan was to exhibit such a show of force upon my father, family, and the local community that it would either put us in a state of terror, causing us to lose hope or react in open defense, giving federal agents justification to arrest or dispatch anyone who would oppose them.

 

No matter how much my father pleaded with state officials to help secure his rights, they only gave lip service to his plight. Having deeded rights registered with the state of Nevada one would conclude that the state should make some sort of effort to protect those rights. However, all pleading to state officials bore no fruit and they left him to be devoured by the powerful federal bureaucratic waiting to destroy, the same bureaucrats that 20 years prior gave him a standing ovation for powerfully articulating the love he had for the land and his heritage.

Federal agents did exactly as they planned, bringing in over 200 federal agents in a military-type operation against my family. The elected representatives had failed, the courts had failed, the associations had failed, the laws had failed, the state had failed, the attorneys had failed. Every effort for nearly 50 years had failed, resulting in an army of federal agents surrounding my family’s ranch home, threatening our lives, turning the Virgin Valley into a real live Red Dawn scene. It was not until my father appealed to the good people across America that the situation changed. On social media and across every network that would allow, my father asked for help. Declaring what his rights are and that he was going to do whatever it took to keep them. People from all over the county came and the situation peacefully turned right side up. The federal agents left the area and my father recovered his cattle and went back to ranching. Sure, it took some time to recover, federal agents had killed around 60 cattle, cut up water tanks and destroyed corrals. But, within a relatively short period of time the ranch was back to normal and my father was experiencing more freedom to ranch than ever before.

 

 

So, what made that all happen? It was not a Convention of States, it was not a Common Law Court, it was not a Grand Jury or becoming a State Nationalist. It was the people coming together in the defense of their neighbors’ rights. The one question I ask the people that want my buy-in on what they believe is the silver bullet to securing liberty, is this, “Who is going to enforce it”? Who is going to enforce the ruling of a grand jury? Who is going to enforce the results of a convention of states? Who is going to enforce the verdict of a common law court? Who is going to enforce the clearing of title on a patent? If you have no way to enforce liberty, then you have none. The people in this country have lost the balance of power they once had. Prior to the last few generations the American people had maintained a unity and regard for individual rights that those in government feared and respected. The bureaucrats understood that they could only get away with so much or the people would forcefully put them in order. Today that balance of power is almost non-existent, putting we the people in a very precarious position.

If we really want to secure liberty all we need to do is unite as a body of people determined to defend each other when rights are threatened. All we need to do is balance the power that has been usurped by the bureaucrats. Samual Adams said, “Give me liberty or give me death.” He understood that until you are willing to give your life for liberty, you cannot be free. He also knew that if the people did not balance the power of government, then they would lose all ability to control their own lives.

There is no silver bullet to securing liberty. It is going to take unity, suffering, and the willingness to use violence in defense, like it always has. Stop believing that some convention or other plot is the answer. Stop thinking that the courts or elected representatives are going to save us. Stop worshiping the police or anyone else that secures more power to the institutions that threaten freedom. Stop wasting your time thinking that congress or the president is where the solution resides. Stop being afraid. Stop thinking that remaining free is easy, it’s not! The people must balance the power that is forming against them. We must peacefully unite, plan, and prepare so we are ABLE to defend ourselves as necessary. The right to defend yourself is a right that is given to you from God and a right that is protected in our founding documents. The same documents that mean nothing unless they can be enforced by the people.

Whether we unite through the People’s Rights Network (PRN) or some other way, unite we must. Never should we go on the offense and use violence. However, we should become proficient and CAPABLE in defending our families, faith, freedom, and future, even by violence when necessary. Never in offense, only in defense. We must not allow ourselves to become so powerless that we have no ability to protect our families from those who have an endless sensation to control.

My commitment to you is a renewed resolve in strengthening and building a unity of people. To unite with other liberty minded networks and groups around the country. To provide effective tools to help neighbors across America communicate and act when individual rights are being threatened. To communicate better myself. In return, I pray that you will resolve to be more courageous. To act when you know you should act. To put away fear and replace it with faith in God. To not allow yourselves to get sucked into ideas that never have nor ever will bring liberty. Ideas that divide and cause contention among freedom minded people. To forgive your neighbors and love them enough to value their freedom as much as your own. To not worry so much about what others may think about you or even what they may do to you for doing what is right. “Do what is right, let the consequences follow, battle for freedom in spirit and might,” one of my favorite hymns.

Sincerely Yours,

Ammon Bundy

IDGOP Follow Up from the Republican National Committee Winter Meeting

0

(IDGOP Press Release, February 2, 2023)

The Idaho Republican Party was pleased to send our three RNC voting members to the 2023 Republican National Committee Winter Meeting this past week. Delegates gathered in Dana Point, California to pass resolutions, elect leadership and set the future goals and policies of the national organization.

The race for RNC Chair was contentious, with the three announced candidates offering differing perspectives on the direction the Republican Party should take. Long-time incumbent Ronna McDaniel promised to stay the course with the national organization’s recent trajectory, advocating for the use of data to ensure institutional excellence and emphasizing financial stability. However, challenger Harmeet Dhillon drew attention from the grassroots with her vision for change. Dhillon spoke on the need for accountability and significant restructuring in light of several cycles of electoral defeat.

Despite suffering significant setbacks in the last election cycle, the Republican National Committee chose the status quo rather than push for changes that could lead to more success. Ronna McDaniel emerged victorious by a significant margin and will resume her leadership role as Chair of the RNC for her fourth term. Drew McKissick of South Carolina was elected to serve as the new Co-Chair after several rounds of voting. K.C. Crosbie from Kentucky will be the new Treasurer, and Vicki Drummond from Alabama will continue to serve as Secretary.

 

 

Important work was accomplished during the winter meeting, including the passage of a resolution that opposes the implementation of ranked choice voting. The RNC resolution will put the Republican Party firmly on record as being against this type of voting, and send a message to states that this system of voting will not be accepted by its members. The RNC resolution against ranked choice voting reinforces the Idaho GOP’s own resolution opposing ranked choice voting that was passed at our State Central Committee winter meeting on January 7th.

The RNC adopted a total of 8 resolutions at the meeting last week, including:

  • Idaho Freedom Foundation

    Resolution to Hold President Biden Accountable for the Border Crisis

  • Resolution to Officially Oppose Ranked Choice Voting across the Country
  • Resolution Honoring and Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Congressman Don Young
  • Resolution to Oppose all forms of Antisemitism, Antisemitic statements, and any Antisemitic Elements that Seek to Infiltrate the Republican Party
  • Resolution Honoring the Life of Dr. Ada Fisher
  • Resolution Affirming the Republican National Committee’s Commitment to Life
  • Resolution Urging the United States to Shut Down any Type of Chinese Police State in the United States
  • Resolution Encouraging the Ban of TikTok on Federal Devices and Discouraging the Use of TikTok on Private Devices

Idaho GOP Chairwoman Moon returned to Idaho eager to continue the important work we are doing here in the Idaho Republican Party. The hardworking men and women of our state are used to trailblazing a different path. This will be no different here.

Regardless of what the National party does — or does not do — our work here in Idaho continues. The Idaho GOP will remain committed to advancing policy that protects your families, your religious liberty, and your fundamental freedoms.

 

 

Guest Column–Brian Parsons: The Least of These

The Least of These

By: Brian Parsons

“Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.”
— Rabindranath Tagore

The Mountain West is largely known as wilderness country.  People come from around the world to experience the unblemished wilderness like Yellowstone or Glacier National Park.  It’s also known as grizzly country.  It’s an annual occurrence to find that some unlucky individuals have met their demise at the hands of wildlife.  Most frequently, these encounters involve a mama bear, moose, or bison that crossed paths with an unlucky human.  Typically this human inadvertently gets too close to mama’s offspring, and she does what all mamas do and will defend her young to her death.  It is innate to animals that much can be tolerated, but the line in the sand is the offspring.

Children are consistently lauded throughout the Bible for their value, innocence, and unwavering faith.  In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon refers to children as the crown of the aged. In the Psalms, King David refers to children as rewards from Heaven.  In the New Testament, Christ says that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to the children and that those who wish to enter Heaven must have the unwavering faith of a child.  Also, in the New Testament, Christ says that you’d be better off tying a millstone around your neck and being thrown into the sea than to cause these innocents to stumble.  From a God frequently distilled down to love, this is a dire warning to those who would pervert the innocence and unwavering faith of a child.

As someone whose foray into politics began with the Ron Paul Revolution and a commitment to the non-aggression principle, I have long held that the sovereignty of the individual demands that people be permitted to sin unto themselves, and they alone bear the consequence of their actions.  Despite my own personal religious convictions, this has always seemed the most equitable solution to governance and human interaction.  It is this sort of commitment to the sovereignty of the individual that permitted the advancement of LGBT rights and privileges in a largely religious society. This societal agreement hinged on the premise of consenting adults and the agnostic position that government should take in the equal application of the law.

 

 

It is no secret that recent topics of discussion in popular American culture converge around children.  From leftist indoctrination in the schools around revisionist social justice campaigns like The 1619 Project, to Critical Race Theory or Social Emotional Learning curricula, to gender ideology and transgenderism, to Drag Queen Storytime, there is a blatant focus on targeting the youth with perverse and activist ideology.  I have covered this prior, but proponents of these ideas understand Abraham Lincoln when he stated that the philosophy of the classroom in one generation would be the philosophy of government in the next. What these propagandists fight for now is not equal rights for today’s generation but godless and uniform thinking for the next.

When protesting these activist and wholly inappropriate indoctrination campaigns, it is a common response to be gaslit that what you are saying is simply untrue.  They say that gender ideology isn’t promoted in social-emotional learning programs, Critical Race Theory isn’t taught in the schools, or Draq Queen Story Time is innocuous.  They are lying on all accounts.  Even here in deep red Idaho, parents are coming to the realization that rural Idaho has not escaped these campaigns. Recent protests of pornographic material in the children’s books at Marshall Public Library, where Drag Queen Story Time is held, confirm this.

Proponents of campaigns like Draq Queen Storytime suggest that their drag queens are different; think Mrs. Doubtfire and not RuPaul.  Critics make no distinction. It is the normalization of adult performance art for the youth.  At a recent “family-friendly” Drag Bingo night in Princeton, Texas, the bearded drag MC host offered the following toast: “Cheers to you. Cheers to me. Cheers to the ones who lick us where we pee.” Following a floor performance where money was thrown at the dancer, children can be seen running to scrounge up the money on the floor. This sort of interaction is not unique and is prompting an intense backlash against drag performance itself.

 

 

Here in Idaho, lawmakers are moving to ban public drag performances.  This prompted a social media response from a local gay bar, Club Charley’s, imploring that it’s time to protect drag shows in Idaho.  No, it’s not time to protect drag shows in Idaho.  It’s time to protect children in Idaho.  Nobody cared about drag shows in adult bars when drag shows were in adult bars. The LGBT community in Idaho missed a prime opportunity to bolster their support here by choosing to insist on normalizing their entertainment over protecting the innocence of the youth.  Woe to you.

Proponents of activist campaigns targeted at the youth made a dire miscalculation in a parent’s resolve to protect their offspring.  A certain level of public trust was extended, and that trust was irrevocably breached.  It is because of this that campaigns for bans on public drag performances and even school choice power ahead at full steam.  Activists have only themselves to blame.

Boise–The Idaho Republican Party held its 2023 State Central Committee Winter Meeting on January 6th and 7th at the Riverside Hotel in Garden City, Idaho.

On Friday, January 6th, the Executive Committee, Regional Redistricting Committee, Rules Committee, and Resolutions Committee met to discuss their business. We are pleased to announce that our new Executive Director, Kiira Turnbow, was confirmed unanimously by the Executive Committee. She has been a valuable addition to the Idaho Republican Party.

Following lunch, the State Central Committee heard the report from the Regional Redistricting committee. Our Regional Redistricting Committee discussed each region in detail, and determined to divide the state into 10 regions to create fair and balanced representation of the state’s residents. The committee submitted their report to the full body of the SCC to be voted on. The regional redistricting report Plan E was approved and will be adopted at the next reorganization meeting.

Following the redistricting report, the State Central Committee was presented with the rules as passed through committee. The body voted to adopt the below rules:

The next order of business was to pass resolutions in order to better inform party policies and platform. These resolutions are meant to serve as a framework for the party going forward, to ensure that its beliefs and platform reflects the values of the party members and citizens of the state. Among the resolutions that passed was Resolution 2023-03 opposing Ranked Choice Voting. The body voted to adopt the below resolutions, which can be viewed on our website at http://www.idgop.org:

  • 2023-03 Resolution Regarding Ranked Choice Voting
  • 2023-06 Resolution Regarding Minor Sex Reassignment
  • 2023-28 Resolution asking for the practice of holding bills in the drawer by Committee Chairman, in the Idaho legislature, be stopped and every bill should be heard and voted on by committee
  • 2023-22 Resolution in Opposition to a four lane freeway in the Island Park Caldera

The remaining resolutions as passed through the committee will be addressed at the 2023 Summer Meeting.

At the conclusion of the winter meeting, the Idaho Republican Party had accomplished much, having outlined and agreed on new regions, rules, and resolutions. The next step is to carry out these policies and initiatives to the benefit of the state and the Idaho Republican Party.

Thank you very much for your time and commitment to the Idaho Republican Party!

Dorothy Moon

Chairwoman of the Idaho Republican Party
