    "I just want government to do what I've told them to do. I'm not out for a revolution, but change definitely needs to happen....I don't want to overturn government because I want power.

    TEL AVIV – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ deputy in his ruling Fatah faction this week dismissed years of American aid amounting to several billion dollars with the declaration that the U.S. has never given anything of “substance” to the Palestinians and added that “nothing good will come from them.” “Recently we were forced to review all of our relations with the American administrations in recent years, and not just the Trump administration. We assessed that nothing good will come from them for the Palestinian people and the nation, and this is completely clear,” said Aloul in an interview with...

    The next prosecution witness is expected to take the stand Monday in the third Bunkerville Standoff trial of Cliven Bundy, his sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy, along with Ryan Payne. Justice Department lawyer Terry Petrie wrapped up his testimony on Wednesday before the Thanksgiving break, answering questions submitted by jurors. US District Judge Gloria Navarro's decision to allow juror questions at the trial submitted in writing is seen as a way for her to see the mind of the jury and enable her to declare a mistrial if she sees a "threat" of jury nullification. Jurors asked about water rights...

    "Saying he was quoting Mark Twain, Whipple said: 'Alcohol is for drinking, water is for fighting' In Cliven Bundy's mind, 'he has a right to the range because he has used it for so long'"...... "Oregon Live" story published 11/14/2017 on opening arguments from Bret Whipple, Cliven Bundy's attorney "....Evidence and arguments of water rights could easily cause the jury to be influenced by the notion that Cliven possessed an ownership interest in the land because he may have possessed water rights on the land, and that he was wronged when ordered to remove his cattle. Indeed one juror presented...

    It was dramatic enough in the courtroom in Portland when all seven defendants accused of being the "leaders" of the Oregon Standoff protest were found not guilty on October 27, 2016. But there was more to come as Ammon Bundy's lawyer, Marcus Mumford, argued for Bundy to be released. The federal government countered about a "retainer" on him for the charges in Nevada but couldn't produce any document stating that when asked by Mumford. They claimed it was "in the office" or something to that effect. A group of federal marshals descended on Mumford, tackling, tasing him and taking him...

    Billy J. Williams, the Acting US Attorney in Oregon, named by the Obama Administration (Attorney General Loretta Lynch) in 2015, is now President Trump's nominee for that post. In a statement, the White House said that Williams and the other three US Attorney nominees in other parts of the country shared Trump's vision for "Making America Safe Again". Williams prosecuted protestors involved in the Oregon Standoff including the seven "leaders" found not guilty in October of 2016 and then prosecuted other protesters adding misdemeanor charges onto felonies and using a jury consultant..... The two Democrats who represent Oregon in the...

    Ammon Bundy's defense attorney Morgan Philpot was questioning Bureau of Land Management official Mary Jo Rugwell in cross examination Thursday afternoon when he wanted to bring up new information the defense has obtained about an FBI "threat assessment". The bureau began to prepare for a confrontation around Bundy Ranch with a forward operations base and deployment of SWAT but then decided the Bundy's posed no threat. The prosecution objected quickly saying the "threat assessment" was information too sensitive to be discuss in court. Mr. Philpot stressed the importance of bringing up the threat assessment to Judge Navarro, but then she...

    Late in the night, "OregonLive" reporter Maxine Bernstein posted information on her Twitter feed showing the reasoning behind Ammon Bundy's lawyer, Morgan Philpot, declining to make an opening statement based on what happened during Monday's evidence hearing. The closed evidence hearing when the public was ushered out on Monday involved discussion of what was revealed by the prosecution in the case last weekend under a deadline imposed by US District Judge Gloria Navarro. "During the last nine days, from November 3 to November 12, the defense has learned that in support of one wireless camera and the related surveillance, SAC...

    Ammon Bundy's attorney Morgan Philpot had a question at the third Bunkerville Standoff trial yesterday (Tuesday November 14th). Philpot was wondering what the jury is being told about being bused to the courthouse everyday. US District Judge Gloria Navarro said she thinks the jury is being told there is no parking at the courthouse. One potential explanation goes back to the jury selection process when potential jurors were asked if they had any bad experiences with law enforcement. This led one person to cite the menacing and threatening demeanor of federal law enforcement positioned outside the courthouse as they walked...

    Late today, US District Judge Gloria M. Navarro decided to keep Ammon Bundy in jail but reversed her decision last week releasing Ryan Bundy to a halfway house. Ryan Bundy will defend himself during the trial. Maxine Bernstein of "OregonLive" tweets that the government apparently made "misrepresentations" at last week's detention hearing. In another tweet, Bernsetein said "odd that Judge Navarro didn't explain her decision now to release Ryan Bundy...just said it as an aside". In open court, there was debate over the evidence between lead prosecutor Acting US Attorney Steve Myhre and defense lawyers........

    Acting US Attorney Steve Myhre and his team have until 12 Noon today (Saturday November 11th) to turn over to defense lawyers any information related to any armed federal officers deployed around Bundy Ranch during the protests that led to the Bunkerville Standoff. They also have to provide details about the operation of a surveillance camera or cameras by the FBI during the protests in March and April 2014 around Bundy Ranch. US District Judge Gloria Navarro issued the order Wednesday after the Attorney's office sent documents to defense lawyers mentioning the armed federal officers conducting "surveillance" around Bundy Ranch...

    LAS VEGAS-Prosecutors in the Bundy trial must provide information by noon Saturday on all armed federal officers who did surveillance outside the Bundy ranch and any cameras capturing images of the Bundy home between March 1 and April 12, 2014, a judge ordered Wednesday. The information must be turned over to the defense. It could help Cliven Bundy, sons Ammon Bundy and Ryan Bundy and co-defendant Ryan Payne challenge the allegation that they used "deceit and deception" to encourage supporters to come to the ranch saying the house was surrounded, federal snipers were outside the home and the family felt...

    Acting US Attorney Steven Myhre was stumbling through an evidence hearing today in the Bunkerville Standoff case, continuing to deny detailed knowledge of an FBI surveillance camera or cameras at Bundy Ranch during the protests there in the spring of 2014. He leveled the accusation that the defense was trying to delay the trial. Myhre spoke of one camera being set up between April 5th and 6th and saying the camera had been made inoperable, suggesting that Ryan Bundy (one of the defendants) may have been responsible for that. Myhre said the camera ended up being moved to a different...

    Internet researcher Katica (Twitter GOPollAnalyst) may have found the hidden thread that unravels a much bigger story within the Uranium One-Clinton-FBI scandal. In an otherwise innocuous FBI FOIA FILE Katica located a notice for preservation of documents sent by an FBI special agent to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on August 28th, 2015. What is interesting about the preservation request(s) are the recipients, their attachment to CFIUS (Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States), and the timeline of events surrounding the agent’s notification. The time-line here is very important as it might change the perception of exactly what the FBI...
