As more people are arrested in connection with the Bundy Ranch siege in 2014 and the Oregon protest that took place earlier this year, attorneys for defendants are concerned that their family members and friends are being put on the terror watch list, a list which has no criteria and is a clear violation of the Fifth Amendment.
In an exclusive interview, Deb Jordan, who is the co-host of the Pete Santilli Show, spoke with us from Nevada where Santilli is incarcerated until May 8 when he is to face a judge there for charges against him.
“The attorneys are concerned that the family members and those close to these guys are being monitored,” Jordan said. “Their concern is that they’re being put on the terror watch list, monitoring phone calls with attorneys and others.”
Back in December, before the events unfolded in Oregon, Santilli and Jordan were held at gun point by Ohio police and were told that Santilli was listed on the terror watch list. Later, Jordan was released, but Santilli faced a gun charged, which was later dropped.
When asked whether or not Jordan was on the terror watch list, she was unaware that she was. However, she does know that some who are connected to the defendants have been.
Jordan left Ohio to visit Santilli in Vegas until his court date, at which point he will likely be transported back to Oregon, just as the Bundy men were earlier this week. She traveled by train, so her ID was not even checked.
The issue of the terror watch list has come up before. Barack Hussein Obama has put forward the idea of using it to keep law abiding citizens from purchasing guns using the terror watch list. Yet, he has failed to provide any evidence that he is not violating the Constitution in doing so nor how it would actually stop crime.
Here’s just a sample of the Fifth Amendment violations that are the result of the terror watchlist. All of these were found to be on the terror watchlist.
- retired Coast Guard commander
- this prepper
- this eight year old
- this four year old
- this 18-month-old baby
- a presidential candidate
One New York senator even introduced a bill that would actually confiscate guns if your name appeared on the terror watchlist. The problem is that it is a violation of the rights of citizens who have not been convicted of a crime!
Understanding the criminal actions of the federal government, specifically the exposing by Edward Snowden of the National Security Agency and their unconstitutional warrantless surveillance of millions of Americans, the concerns of attorneys in the Bundy Ranch siege and Oregon protest matters are understandable.
