Earlier in the week, I, Dave Hodges, had written that to avoid a massacre of the Ammon Bundy led force, more people had to descend upon Oregon, or Ammon’s people had better leave. The more people and groups arrive in the beleaguered areaall the better for the Patriots, and that this would exponentially increase the risk of public ridicule against the federal government should violence breakout. against a larger group of people.
Right now, CNN and FOX are trying to characterize the Bundy led standoff as an action led by half crazed radicals with nothing better to do with their time. The term, “Domestic Terrorists”, comes to mind with how the Patriots are being characterized by the mainstream media.
Ammon Bundy Scheduled to Appear On The Common Sense Show 1/10/2016 at 830pm MST
The Common Sense Show covertly scheduled an interview to air on Sunday, January 10, 2016 at 830pm MST. The interview was set up by back channel sources in order to avoid the attention of the feds for fear the interview would be interfered with. The health reporter for The Common Sense Show, Katy Whelan, was handling the details with someone inside the Bundy camp.
I was interviewing Sheila Zilinski when her communications were taken down just prior to our bottom of the hour commercials which would have been followed by Ammon Bundy appearing on The Common Sense Show.
Federal Government Interference
Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, was right, the First Amendment is basically dead.
The Common Sense Show has been taken down before by outside forces, but our phones and our subsequent ability to record and interview for the archives have never been impacted, at least until last Sunday night.
After Sheila was forcibly taken off the air, I announced the following:
“At the bottom of the hour, we are scheduled to interview Ammon Bundy. We fear that the feds will interfere with our broadcast as they have so many times before. However, we have always been able to record and interview and play it later on the archives. If we lose communications with our satellite provider, we will be posting the archives on Monday morning. The feds will not be allowed to keep the message from Ammon Bundy from going out.”
These were famous last words from myself. The federal government’s takedown of the show was utterly complete and effective. I received a message from the producer, “I am phoning Ammon now”. Then there was complete silence.
Because of the size of my audience, my show is carried on two separate satellites in two different states. They were both taken down at the same time. We also have a listen by phone option which is independent of the satellite, it was taken down. We have six phone lines which are landlines, they were all taken down. Nothing related to our satellite provider was left intact. This was an attack simultaneously carried out on multiple fronts.
Somebody pointed out that the Oregon Patriots had been interviewed in the previous days. However, they were only interviewed by FOX , CNN and the other corporate controlled media. The Obama administration does not want Ammon Bundy to tell his story to a talk show host who will not steer the conversation into the desired propaganda zone.
At the exact same time that The Common Sense Show was taken down, all communications within the Bundy camp were also taken down as well. There was not going to be any communications allowed between Dave Hodges and Ammon Bundy, if the Obama administration could help it.
Where There Is a Will There Is a Way
Rest assured, a recorded interview between Ammon Bundy and Dave Hodges has/will taken place and it will be played at a time of our choosing. Will the federal government completely take The Common Sense Show off of the air? Perhaps. However, it does not matter. I will distribute this interview to as many Independent Media outlets as possible. Ammon’s message will be heard, unless of course, Obama and Loretta Lynch plan to take all of the Independent Media outlets down. What is Obama afraid of? Is he afraid that the country, as a whole, will learn about how his administration throught the BLM and the EPA are abusing farmers and ranchers all throughout the West, and they are using Gestapo tactics to do so?
My daily show is heard from 2-3pm MST. The Sunday night show is heard from 6-9pm MST. This interview will be played.
Local, State and Federal Public officials from the Burns mayor to Oregon Governor Kate Brown to the FBI have ordered the now, so-called Oregon Militia to pack up and leave, but Ammon Bundy has made it clear he has no immediate plans to comply. At issue is the fact that Dwight Hammond and his son are serving a five year prison sentence for executing a controlled burn on their own land which carried over the nearby federal land. The act was unintentional and there was no damage.
The zealous federal prosecutors wanted their pound of flesh after a local judge sentenced the father-son duo to serve less than the minimum sentence. That wasn’t good enough for federal prosecutors who prosecuted the Hammonds under arson statutes as they pertained to anti-terroism laws. This was a complete case of federal tyranny being visited upon the Hammonds. The Hammonds are not alone.
Unconstitutional Federal Land Grabs Throughout the West
The Hammonds are not alone. There are several ranchers in the area that are also having their rights abused. The problem in the West, with regard to tyrannical federal overreach is so severe that the notion of the State of Jefferson has emerged to encompass 20 counties in Northern California and Southern Oregon in which the local officials have declared they wish to withdraw from their state and form their own state. Why? Because they feel they can better fight against federal tyranny which is destroying the property rights of ranchers and farmers. These people have had enough. Ammon Bundy has had enough. Hence, we have the standoff near Burns, Oregon.
A Force Multiplier Has Arrived In Burns, Oregon
Although the III%’s are attempting to “resolve” the situation. Their presence bring a new dynamic to the situation. First, they are carrying guns. Second, if shooting breaks out, the FBI would not be able to tell them apart from the Bundy forces. This entire situation has the potential to get very ugly. The Common Sense Show will be covering these events as they break.
I interviewed David Morgan last night before the show was taken down. David and I both agree that the feds are using this standoff to coverup something much more nefarious. It is a convenient distraction. I will cover this in tommorrow’s edition of The Common Sense Show.
