Political prisoner Cliven Bundy recently wrote a letter from jail. The letter, dated April 11, 2016, appealed to the US government and the American people to not let patriots and veterans who have served their country to rot in jail and trample upon the Constitution.
“It is your time to come forward – to defend and make right!” the letter began. “Two years ago tomorrow, the Bundy Ranch stood for liberty and freedom. Many stood with us, many prayed for us, and freedom won.”
“I have four sons in jail by the US Justice Department,” he continued. “Each has a family of a lovely wife and sweet babies. The hearts of these children are turned to their fathers and the hearts of the fathers are turned to their babies. All their hearts are broken from sadness!”
Though expressing his sorrow at the sorrow of his family, Bundy did not write the letter to call for sympathy. Rather, he wrote to call out the injustice against those who stood for the law.
“I come to you because you have American patriots and veterans jailed by federal US Justice Dept.,” Bundy wrote. “They have been there over two months. These women and men, most have served you America, overseas, one or more tours fighting and defending, sacrificing, enduring the savage of war, putting their lives on the line. They love their country, taking an oath that they would defend her against foreign and domestic enemies and to defend America’s constitution! These are the very best America has. Treat them that way!”
“You are treating them like terrorists waiting to see them rot in federal prison,” Bundy chastised. “These patriots came as individuals, dressed in their fatigues to share the burden and responsibility of protecting (the Bundy ranching family Nevada and the Hammond ranching family Oregon) their safety, property, constitutionality and state rights. These patriots have never harmed a soul on American soil or destroyed property. They only desire the best for America and they have been, they are, and they will stand strong and tall for America.”
He then asked, “Are you going to let them stand alone!!!?”
Of course, Bundy has accurately spoken about those who are now political prisoners. Unlike the criminal and unconstitutional agency known as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Land Management, who have engaged in the open murder of women and children at Waco and Ruby Ridge and aided in the recent murder of LaVoy Finicum, along with setting fires that destroyed property, these men and women, to whom Bundy refers, have merely exercised their rights that are protected under the First and Second Amendments of the US Constitution to point out the blatant usurpation of power by the DC government.
He then went on to write, “These patriots’ (militia) desire was and is to strengthen government within the state’s respective borders. That We the People have elected and given to you your attorneys and money is needed in your defense. The feds are exercising power outside constitutional jurisdiction. TYRANNY! You cannot do your duty and be idle spectators.”
“As defendants, in jail, they are depending on US public defenders to represent their defense,” Bundy added. “That’s not good enough!! American lawyers, there are thousands of you. Come, at least 10 for each defendant. You veterans and your lawyers, where are you?”
He then appealed to average Americans, who whom there are over 300,000,000, pleading with them to help finance the defense teams. Lest you think that appeal is for selfish reasons, consider that Bundy and those who are imprisoned are there because they have counted the cost of their stand and have sacrificed. Second, their stand was against the unlawfulness of a government that we have allowed to commit crimes against us for far too long. So, their stand is, in fact, our stand.
“America, very good men and women’s lives and liberty are in your hands!” Bundy concluded. “Wake up America! I pledge justice for all!”
