A federal judge dealt a blow to defense lawyers in the Bunkerville standoff case Monday with an early-morning ruling that obliterates the strategy they used in the first trial this year.
The order, from U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro, came hours before prosecutors and defense attorneys started selecting a jury for the retrial against four men accused of conspiring against the government with rancher Cliven Bundy. In April, a jury deadlocked on all counts against Eric Parker, Steven Stewart, Scott Drexler and Ricky Lovelien.
Prosecutors characterize the defendants as violent zealots whose blatant disregard for the rule of law put hundreds of lives in danger. Defense attorneys, meanwhile, describe their clients as passionate but peaceful protesters who, during the April 2014 standoff, exercised their constitutional rights against a militant federal law enforcement presence.
But much of that defense narrative was invalidated Monday by Navarro’s ruling, which amounts to a blanket ban on evidence that comprised the heart of the strategy in the first trial.
“It changes the landscape of where we need to go with our defense, but it doesn’t change the government’s high burden to prove the case,” said defense attorney Todd Leventhal, who represents Drexler. “Despite this uphill battle, we’ll keep fighting.”
Defense attorneys no longer will be allowed to argue that their clients were exercising their First and Second Amendment rights to freely assemble and to bear arms when, in April 2014, they brought their guns to the site where federal agents tried to round up Bundy’s cows.
“The law does not recognize these amendments as legal defenses to the crimes charged,” Navarro wrote.
The order also prohibits defense lawyers from calling people to testify about federal agents’ actions in the days leading up to the standoff, when law enforcement officers used stun guns and police dogs to control angry protesters. Such actions led the Bundy family to issue a call to arms on social media, in which they implored other individual rights activists to drive to the family ranch.
Defense attorneys had argued that they should be allowed to bring in that sort of evidence in order to prove their clients’ “non-criminal state of mind” when they tossed their guns in their cars and drove to Bunkerville to join the ballooning protests.
But Navarro wrote in her ruling that if “evidence is not relevant to any of the elements of a charge or a cognizable defense to that charge, the evidence is not admissible.”

For the same reason, the defendants are prohibited from arguing that they brought their weapons for self-defense against an excessively forceful police presence. The four men are charged as “gunmen,” accused of supplying the force behind a conspiracy to stop the cattle seizure.
The government also was handed a victory Monday when, in a separate order, Navarro ruled that prosecutors can introduce evidence related to the defendants’ prior association with militia groups.
The lengthy process of selecting a jury started Monday and is expected to last several days. Parker, Stewart, Drexler and Lovelien are being tried on charges of conspiracy, assault, threats, extortion and related counts for their role in the 2014 standoff between gun rights activists and federal agents.
Defense attorneys Jess Marchese, Rich Tanasi and Todd Leventhal — the lawyers for Parker, Stewart and Drexler — came to court Monday dressed in matching ties, which were emblazoned with passages from the U.S. Constitution. On each tie, the phrase “We the People” was highlighted in large, bold font.

The judge’s ruling specifically prohibits defense attorneys from mentioning the following:

-Officers’ encounters with civilians during the arrest of Dave Bundy, the rancher’s son, a week before the standoff.

-Officers’ encounters with Margaret Houston, a middle-aged grandmother who was tackled to the ground by a BLM agent days before the standoff. Prosecutors argue Houston was in the way of an oncoming truck; defense attorneys contend the force was excessive.

-Testimony about the level of force used by law enforcement officers. In the days leading up to the protest, law enforcement officers used stun guns and police dogs to control the crowds. On the day of the standoff, federal police armed themselves, donned SWAT gear, and assumed military “stacking formation.”

-A statement that Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval issued four days before the standoff, in which he condemned federal agents’ actions.

-References to First Amendment zones. Days before the standoff, federal agents cordoned off a First Amendment zone for protesters in the middle of the desert.

-Arguments about Bundy’s grazing, water or legacy rights on the public lands. Bundy let his cattle roam free on public lands for decades but refused to obtain grazing permits. He maintains that the federal government does not have jurisdiction over the land.

-First and Second Amendment rights to freely assemble and to bear arms.

-Punishments the defendants may face if convicted of the offenses.
=========================================================

FELLOW AMERICANS; You might find this almost IMPOSSIBLE TO BELIEVE BUT the above WAS NOT embellished whatsoever. It is the DIRECT ARTICLE from the Las Vegas Review-Journal

The article unambiguously PROVES the FEDERAL JUDICIAL TYRANNY of our U.S. Government Courthouses and Federal Judges. YOU READ IT FOR YOURSELF!

Is there any wonder why the U.S. Government and the U.S. Government Federal Judges have hunted down, one by one with SWAT Teams, arrested and are HOLDING OVER FIFTY of our American Constitutional Patriots and AMERICAN MILITIA FREEDOM FORCES troops, in Political PRISON, for OVER 18 MONTHS NOW, for STANDING UP for Supporting and Defending and "executing the laws of the Union" at The Battle of Bunkerville Nevada and the Malheur Wildlife Refuge takeover, as is their Responsibility and Duty under the Rule of Constitutional Law and Order?

========================================================
ARTICLE I Section 8 clause 15 of The Constitution:

"To provide for calling forth the Militia --->to execute the (Ninth and TENTH Amendment) Laws of the Union<---, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions"

Refering to ARTICLE I Section 8, including clause 17 thereof, the TENTH Amendment EXPRESSLY PROHIBITS the U.S. Government from owning or managing ANY LAND within the Continental united States of America, pursuant to our EXISTING Article IV Section 4 "Republican form of Government", outside of THE LAST REMAINING "Territory" of Washington D.C., all other "Territories" having been transformed into free, independent and sovereign Countries called States pursuant to THE EQUAL FOOTING DOCTRINE, by Act of Congress, "-->IN PURSUANCE<-- thereof" (See Article VI supremacy clauses 2 & 3) the Ninth and TENTH Amendment supreme laws of the land.

ARTICLE I Section 8 clause 17:

To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings
========================================================

Our 50+ brethren are already in Political Prison and on Judicial TYRANNY Trial for THEIR LIVES ! For STANDING UP for and "executing the Ninth and TENTH Amendment Laws of the Union" which EXPRESSLY PROHIBITS the U.S. Government from owning or managing ANY Land in America outside of THE LAST REMAINING "Territory" of Washington D.C., and that "purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings".

Why stand we here idle?

What is it that gentlemen wish?

What would they have?
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains, slavery, National Public Debt and UNFUNDED Liabilities to be paid with the labor of serfs and vassals by our Seniors, our wives, our children and our grandchildren in violation of the "delegated" powers and spending WE THE PEOPLE "ordained and established" upon the President and Congress to "secure the Blessings of Liberty to OURSELVES and our Posterity"?

AND NOW, ANY AMERICAN WHO STANDS UP for THE TENTH AMENDMENT, which EXPRESSLY PROHIBITS the U.S. Government from owning or managing ANY LAND within the Continental united States of America, subsequent to Article I Section 8 clause 17 of The Constitution pursuant to THE EQUAL FOOTING DOCTRINE, outside of THE LAST REMAINING "Territory" of Washington D.C. and "Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings"; ARE LANGUISHING IN U.S. GOVERNMENT PRISONS without their God given Constitutionally protected 8th Amendment Right to Bail, to be free from cruel and unusual punishment, to be Tried by a Jury of their Peers BEFORE being sentenced to Prison, to be INNOCENT until PROVEN GUILTY? ?

Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

- Capt. Karl — with Ammon Bundy.

Judge bans defense arguments in Bundy retrial

Post by Floyd » Mon Jul 17, 2017 9:29 pm

https://redoubtnews.com/2017/07/judge-d ... y-retrial/

Government prosecutors have a friend in U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro.

SHE IS GOING TO EXTRAORDINARY LENGTHS TO ADDRESS PROSECUTION FEARS OF “JURY NULLIFICATION,”

The judge is presiding over the retrial of four defendants charged with various crimes stemming from their participation in the 2014 Bunkerville standoff near Cliven Bundy’s ranch. The first trial ended in April with the jury deadlocked on all counts involving the four men.

On Monday, the judge eviscerated the defense’s legal strategy, putting off limits a whole host of issues that might make it more difficult for the government to win convictions. The defendants will be forbidden from arguing that they were exercising their constitutional rights to peaceably assemble and bear arms. They may not highlight the actions of BLM agents in the days leading up to the incident or mention federal gaffes such as the ill-advised “First Amendment” zone created for protesters.

And if imposing these restrictions on the defense wasn’t enough, Judge Navarro ruled that prosecutors may introduce testimony about the four accused men and their associations with so-called militia groups.
