    President Trump on Tuesday pardoned a pair of Oregon ranchers whose arson conviction became a focus for opponents of federal government land ownership. Dwight Hammond, 76, and his son Steven, 49, were convicted in 2012 and sent to prison on arson charges. They had set a series of fires on their ranch that spread to federal land. The Hammonds’ case became the inspiration for the 40-day armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. The organizers wanted to protest federal land ownership. The Hammonds distanced themselves from the occupiers and didn't endorse the action. In a statement Tuesday...

    President Donald Trump pardoned two men on Tuesday who were involved in a dispute with federal authorities over federal land usage that sparked the takeover of a wildlife refuge in Oregon. Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son Steven Hammond were granted executive grants of clemency by Trump, according to a White House statement. The father-son duo are cattle ranchers and were convicted in 2012 of committing arson on federal lands in Oregon. "Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond, both of whom are entirely deserving of these Grants of Executive Clemency," the statement read....

    President Donald Trump pardoned two Oregon ranchers forced back into prison in 2016 to serve out the rest of the mandatory minimum sentence required under an anti-terrorism law. “The Hammonds are multi-generation cattle ranchers in Oregon imprisoned in connection with a fire that leaked onto a small portion of neighboring public grazing land,” the White House said in a statement. “The evidence at trial regarding the Hammonds’ responsibility for the fire was conflicting, and the jury acquitted them on most of the charges. Dwight and Steven Hammond were convicted of committing arson on federal land in 2012 under an anti-terrorism...

  • American Standoff

    I just watched the TV documentary (American Standoff) about the Oregon Standoff and occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon, and I am still sick to my stomach. Not living out west, I did not realize that Dwight Hammond and his son Steve were still in jail for this travesty of justice. A good man named LaVoy Finicum was killed by the feds in the standoff. The Ruby Ridge feds were at it again. As i understand it, Trump talked about this situation during his campaign. I am incensed that he still has not pardoned the Hammonds. The...

    The journalist who first reported the ejection of three Jewish women from Chicago’s Dyke March tweeted that she was removed from her reporting job because of that article. In a tweet Monday, Gretchen Rachel Hammond wrote to Dyke March’s Twitter account that “You attacked, humiliated and robbed me of a job.” Hammond confirmed to JTA on the same day that she wrote the tweet. Hammond said she could not elaborate on her tweet, citing an agreement with her employer, the Windy City Times. […] The Dyke March itself has fielded criticism for using an anti-Semitic slur, tweeting on July 13...

    Brian Hook, a noted Trump critic during the presidential election, is a key figure in a State Department containing many unfilled positions. Hook is the State Department’s director of policy planning, and a Politico report Sunday citing several officials said that Hook has an inordinate amount of power in shaping American foreign policy. A State Department official confirmed this description of Hook to The Daily Caller. The position of director of policy planning is usually an important one and serves as a think tank of sorts for the department. However, with many unfilled roles at the State Department, Hook has...

    The FBI raid of the Hammond Police Department and a Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office substation Thursday (Dec. 15) is part of a wider investigation into the work of a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration task force whose members are alleged to have sold narcotics and tampered with witnesses, several news agencies reported. The investigation involves the DEA, the Justice Department and the department's office of inspector general. DEA agent Chad Scott, who was leading the drug task force, was suspended earlier this year. Two members of his task force -- former Tangipahoa sheriff's deputies deputies Johnny Domingue and Karl Newman --...

    PRINCETON, Ore. (INTELLIHUB) — As it turns out there’s a lot more to the story behind the Malheur Wildlife Refuge–a whole lot more–and this article is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. As you may or may not know, Intellihub reported on Jan. 4, that the Hammond’s ranch and other ranch-lands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government, but foreign entities as well. However, at the time of the article’s publication the federal government’s full motive to seize the land was not yet...

    Two key members of the Oregon militia, who continue to hold the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, say Arizona officials took their children from their homes as an act of revenge. According to a report from the Arizona Republic, Robert "LaVoy" Finicum and Blaine Cooper say federal officials pressured local child protection officials to take custody of their children in retaliation against them for their siege on the wildlife refuge. Cooper, who posts regular updates of the siege on social media, said earlier in the month that child protection services came to his house in Humboldt, Arizona, and took...

    Environmental organizations that offered more than 150,000 comments calling on the U.S. Forest Service to reject an agreement to allow additional mining in the North Fork area said the response demonstrated strong public opposition. More like "stuffing the ballot box," said an industry spokesman who noted that the environmental opposition would undermine a bargain fashioned over five years of talks. The Forest Service proposes reinstating the North Fork coal-mining exception to the Colorado Roadless Rule. The exception would allow Arch Coal to extend the West Elk Mine near Somerset below the roadless area. The roadless exemption would allow construction of...
