The FBI has swooped into an elderly man’s Indiana home and seized thousands of artifacts he collected — he says legally — during his decades of travel to hundreds of destinations, including Haiti, Australia, New Guinea and Peru.

Donald Miller, 91, accumulated the artifacts over the past 80 years, said FBI Special Agent Robert Jones, during a news conference.

I hope he sues, wins a massive settlement, and forces the Feral Government to return his collection.

"“The cultural value of these artifacts is immeasurable,” Mr. Jones said"

Pure hyperbole."

Culture has been cruising along just fine without seeing the stuff the 91 yr old has collected.

Frigging robotic, envious, power mad goons.

Accusation without proof, innuendo, suspicion and castigation all based on unsubstantiated claims. Damned Gestopo goose-stepping goons.

“The very seriousness of the charge warrants seizure and arrest.”

Probably doesn't have enough time to get all of that done.

It seems that the government got wind of his privately collected artifacts and just decided to take them on the SUSPICION that they might have been acquired illegally.

The artifacts were not seized. They were STOLEN. Let’s be clear about that.

Good to know that the FBI is on the job, protecting us all from serious criminal acts such as those alleged here.

Wait, wut?

The feds are banking on a 91 year old man passing away before any lawsuit ever comes to trial. They will simply confiscate, and wait him out with typical DOJ obstruction and denial. And if that doesn’t work, the feds will either throw lawyers at him until he relents, or use every alphabet agency at the disposal of the feds to break him, and imprison him for some perceived violation, and let him die in prison.

Welcome to the new American dictatorship, comrades.

51 Federal Agents Descend On Home In Rural Indiana

By John Dodge

CHICAGO (CBS) — Federal agents have descended on a compound in rural Indiana that reportedly contains a large amount of historical artifacts, including some from World War II, sources said Wednesday. Aerial photos from WISH-TV in Indianapolis show at least two large command vehicles on the side of a large brown two-story building in the small town of Waldron, which is southeast of Indianapolis.

At 91 he won't live long enough to see them returned (5-10 years minimum of court haggling).

And when he dies, his heirs will have to pay estate tax on items the Feral Gubmint seized, even though they don’t have them.

Seriously.

This was posted on the 2 Million Bikers to DC's Facebook page:

Remember this story from yesterday "FBI seizing artifacts at rural Indiana home. FBI surrounds home in rural central Indiana; agency says agents seizing artifacts"?

Well folks guess what, the FBI was NOT looking for artifacts at all! Here is the REAL Story sent to us by one of his Protege's:

FBI seizes Native American, "other artifacts" at rural Indiana home

This story reeks of Government Cover-up. The real truth lies in what has not been reported in this story. One must first know the definition of artifacts: an object formed by humans, particularly one of interest to archaeologists.

This differs from the word relic:: something that is from a past time, place, culture, etc. ►Artifacts can be data, technology etc which are covered under treaties.◄

The FBI statement "Jones said that the extensive collection, which Miller amassed over eight decades, includes Native American artifacts and relics as well as items from the United States, China, Haiti, Australia, Russia, New Guinea, Italy, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Greece, Peru and possibly several other countries."

The FBI statement allows room for many scenarios. My research on Dr. Don Miller led me to discover his close involvement in the creation and detonation of the atom bomb. Read the full story here: http://www.rushvillerepublican.com/local/x681493636/The-Day-the-Sun-Rose-Twice?zc_p=0

Dr. Don Miller, holds a P.H.D in electrical engineering, is the brother of Dr. Stanley Miller world reknowned Chemical Physicist.. Don Miller operated under the company name Wyman Research, he created transponders used by NASA in the space stations Read the story here:

http://www.marexmg.org/fileshtml/sponsorspeople.htm and photos of his invention from space

http://web.archive.org/web/20021213135955/http://www.svs.net/wyman/examples/sstv.htm

Also read about Dr Stanley Millers research http://www.pbs.org/exploringspace/meteorites/murchison/page5.html

►Oddly enough Dr.Millers Website was taken down last month and my research relied greatly on the way back machine which archives websites. His website was www.svs.net ◄

BINGO ►► Most recently Dr Miller developed the technology to locate any transmitter through triangulation after the beacon has failed. This technology would be very useful say if an airplane went down and was unable to be located. ◄◄

Dr. Miller has offered tours of his mini museum for many years which contained relics from his travels which was never of issue until recently. I googled FBI and artifact seizure and other than the raid on Dr. Millers home and some stories of soldiers stealing Iraqi artifacts, there was very little. It does not seem to be a usual activity for the FBI.

Looking at the photo of Dr. Miller's home it is very obvious that he installed several 40'-50' antenna towers on his property which is located out in the middle of nowhere. The FBI (or some agency) set up containment/quarantine tents all over his property and there is no identification of any particular government agencies on the vehicles on his property. I was able to locate video showing those towers being removed which would fall under the definition of artifact but weren't mentioned by reporters.

The fact that the the news doesn't mention that this man was very prominent in the development of nuclear weapons, space science, groundbreaking transponder technology, spectral analysis or the sole heir to his famous brothers research on the origins of life is wherein the truth lies.

I would be surprised if this man lives long enough to tell the real story. ~ Anonymous Source

The CBS article did mention that some of his items dated to WWII (not just the procurement OF the ancient artifacts).

he is 91 the federal government counts on his dying in order to take from the heirs.

This ant-private property nonsense has to stop. This is just a PC collectivist BS.
