My response to the letter by Larry Condon Aug. 17:
My parents, too, taught me guilt by association and as a kid not to be in or around those who smoked pot or groups that were drinking. Even if I wasn't partaking, I would be arrested -- guilt by association.
Let me make myself clear, I stand with the Bundys, Finicums, Hammonds, and Hages whose ranches and others whose private property have been invaded because The Clinton Foundation made a deal with Russia for the uranium on the Hammonds' private property or Harry Reid made a deal with China for a solar plant on the Bundys'. I also stand with those prisoners who stood by them trying to stay off the oppression. I do not associate myself with any "sovereign citizen group" nor do any of the others, including but not limited to Jeanette (whose husband was shot three times in the back while arms were in the air, needless to say killed), Thara, David, the ladies and myself who invited them here.
But it appears Mr. Condon is proud to associate with a federal government that is shutting down the use of our resources and the economy, through regulations (not law), of our cities and towns, i.e. mining, logging, drilling, farming, ranching and the like that are the heavy hands of oppression, that we are all feeling as we try to stay employed and live our lives peacefully. Yes, I am painting this with a broad brush as it appears Mr. Condon did to me and the ladies.
Look at this headline: http://www.allenbwest.com/michaelcantrell/fbi-obtains-christian-kill-list-neglects-tell. "The FBI did not alert numerous Americans that they were placed on secret Islamic State kill lists or notify their local police about the potential dangers, a lapse in the government's efforts to combat the terrorist group's evolving strategy to target everyday citizens.
"To date, the terror group that goes by the acronym ISIS has published on encrypted websites several hit lists naming more than 15,000 people it would like to see killed by sleeper cells or lone wolves in New York, Texas, Florida and California."
A great group to be associated with, right? But the FBI runs around the country following Jeanette and those who support her and tries to put her and them on a terrorist list? How about the CIA and the federal state department. Look how they took care of the Americans at Benghazi. Some of those were ex-Marines. Yes, I have had the privilege of listening to Kris Paronto, Mark Geist and John Tiegen in person as I have had the privilege of visiting in person with the Finicums and the Bundys, all who tell the truth and relate facts of events that have happened.
