Nevada rancher Cliven D. Bundy heads for another showdown with the U.S. Government. Follow along below for updates from the Hatewatch Staff.
Here's what we know so far:

A federal judge in Las Vegas hinted on Dec. 11 that she is leaning toward declaring a mistrial for Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and a militia commander from Montana.
Federal prosecutors are trying Cliven Bundy, along with his sons and others for their role in a “massive armed assault” conspiracy targeting federal agents in a landmark case that’s become known as Bunkerville.
The case has become a reference point in various militia, far-right constitutionalist, Patriot and antigovernment circles.

Federal judge poised to rule on a mistrial in case surrounding Cliven Bundy’s 2014 standoff

Dec. 11 — Ryan Lenz

After years of litigation and only a handful of witnesses, a federal judge in Las Vegas hinted on Monday that she is leaning toward declaring a mistrial for Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and a militia commander from Montana.

Each defendant faces a host of federal charges related to the 2014 armed standoff in the desert with the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy, his sons Ryan and Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne, a militia commander from Montana, are charged with conspiracy, assaulting and threatening federal officers, using firearms during crimes of violence, obstruction of justice and extortion for their actions that day.

Before ordering the trial to proceed under seal Monday morning, Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro said she was “inclined” to grant a mistrial in response to a series of defense motions that suggest a pattern of the federal government failing to turn over evidence to defense attorneys in a timely fashion.

The evidence includes threat assessments prepared by various law enforcement agencies that Navarro on Monday said seemed to provide “contradictory” statements regarding what danger the Bundy family and their ideology posed, and proof of the existence of surveillance cameras surrounding the family’s home in Bunkerville, Nevada.

The possibility of a mistrial is only the latest dramatic turn in a legal saga that began on April 12, 2014, when the Bundy family led a force of hundreds of armed militia and ranchers to stop the federal impoundment of the family’s cattle herd as payment for more than $1 million in unpaid grazing fees and fines.

This is not the first time a federal prosecution against the Bundy family and their supporters has teetered on the brink of collapse.

Last April, a separate trial in Las Vegas for six other defendants — men the federal government accused of providing the armed resistance in the Bundy’s conspiracy to thwart the court order — ended in a mistrial after jurors were hopelessly deadlocked on 50 of 60 counts.

“I think it should show the federal government that they have a much weaker case than they thought going into this, because we’ve now had two months of testimony from over 50 prosecution witnesses, and they couldn’t get 12 people to agree,” attorney Todd Leventhal said at the time.

Then, last August, two other men — Ricky Lovelien of Montana and Steven Stewart were acquitted of all counts for their actions at the Bundy Ranch in 2014.

Prosecutors have until Friday to respond to defense attorney motions, and the judge is expected to make a ruling on a mistrial by Tuesday, December 19.

The jury has been released until December 20.
Only Cliven Bundy remains in jail as federal trial drags on

Dec. 5 — Bill Morlin and Ryan Lenz

Exposing the deep state and non-Americans who want land and minerals. Dual Citizenship politicians creating a Jewish United States?

Americans almost living the same life as those in Palestine? Who votes to go to war? Who votes to give Israel $31 Billion American tax dollars while its own infrastructure is crumbling? Does your dual citizenship politician put the U.S. or their own country above the American people? Do you know if your politician is an ALL American and 100% for the people and the country?

Will the U.S. be the Untied States of Israel some day? Dual citizen politicians seem to be working hard to make it that way.

Flashback to Crimes Against Americans - US political system ‘controlled by Jewish-Zionist interests'


WHO WANTS THE LAND OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? THE SAME ORGANIZATIONS THAT WANTS THE MIDDLE EAST! WHO FIGHTS FOR TO MAKE ISRAEL THE GREATEST NATION ON THE PLANET?

AMERICAN SOLDIERS AND TAXPAYERS - YOUR DUAL CITIZENSHIP POLITICIANS AND ORGANIZATIONS LOVE YOU!

NOT A JEW? MARRY ONE AND JOIN THE NUMBER ONE NATION THAT IS LEADING THE WORLD INTO A new world order.
