American patriot Brand Thornton released a video in which he condemned the lawless actions of federal judges who are seeking to impose more trumped up charges on citizens who either had charges dismissed or were acquitted following the Malheur Wildlife Reserve protests. However, he doesn’t stop there are many of these people remain political prisoners facing more trumped up charges in Nevada for their stand against a lawless and tyrannical central government and their goons in the Bureau of Land Management.
“It is time to stand,” posted on Facebook. “Judges have totally gone rogue!”

After speaking to John Lamb, Thornton said, “The united States government has gone completely rogue. It’s completely treasonous at this point.”
He first spoke about what was taking place in Nevada, where several patriots are being held in jail awaiting trial in early 2017 for their defiance of the tyranny of the BLM at Bundy Ranch in 2014.
“Last Monday, we had a motion for pre-trial release,” he said on Christmas Day. “In that hearing, the prosecution for the united States government completely disregarded the Supreme Court and case law in that hearing.”
The prosecution bears the burden of providing witnesses and evidence against the defendants as to why the patriots in jail currently should not be released. However, Thornton said they did none of that.
Thornton said they merely presented “rants,” “whining,” and “making unproven statements, no evidence, no nothing.” According to Thornton, the entire argument from prosecutors was that the patriots broke laws and can’t be released without any evidence of the sort.
Mr. Thornton claims it is a violation of the 8th Amendment of the Constitution.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. -8th Amendment to the US Constitution
He also said the prosecutors completely ignored the historical rulings of the Supreme Court and case law.
If that was not bad enough, Thornton then elaborated on what prosecutors in Oregon are seeking to do. In starting a process of bringing new charges against those who have already been acquitted, four testimonies have been stricken from court records. This came as a result of the order from Judge Anna Brown in the case.
According to Guerilla Media Network‘s Deb Jordan, the testimonies of Thornton, Terri Linnell, Franklin Graham, and Matthew Deathredge were removed from the court records. Jordan posted the video on her Facebook page and presented the names which Thornton is speaking about.
“Because of the second trial coming up in Oregon, they don’t want it introduced as evidence,” says Thornton.
Thornton claims that Ammon Bundy and the rest of the patriots who were acquitted are no being tried in absenteeism, and he believes it is nothing more than Double Jeopardy, even though these are different charges.
I tend to agree with his assessment, especially when a corrupt government wants to whitewash a case they can’t win and then pour on more charges against the very people they are trying to silence.
