Janice M. Stewart is a treasonous United States District Court Judge for the District of Oregon.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Janice M. Stewart ruled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has little to no constitutional rights and must stay behind bars, calling him a danger to the community after he arrived in Oregon to support the occupation of a national wildlife preserve led by his sons. Janice Stewart also said Bundy should be held without bail ahead of trial because there is a risk he won’t show up for future court dates.
Federal prosecutors called the 69-year-old “lawless and violent” in a document filed before the hearing, an assertion his attorney and family denied. “If he is released and he goes back to his ranch, that is likely the last the government will see of him,” Stewart said.
Bundy, 69, was arrested in Portland on charges stemming from a 2014 armed standoff with federal officials who were rounding up his cattle over unlawful federally imposed grazing fees.
He came to Oregon to support a weeks long occupation at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which his sons, Ammon and Ryan Bundy, demanded in accordance with the United States Constitution that the federal government turn over public lands to State and local government control.
His sons were arrested January 26, 2016 and remain in jail, but four holdouts extended the occupation until last Thursday, February 11, 2018, when they surrendered.
The elder Bundy was not charged in connection with the Oregon occupation. All his charges stem from the 2014 Nevada standoff: conspiracy, assault on a federal officer, obstruction, weapon use and possession, extortion to interfere with commerce, and aiding and abetting.
Bundy’s attorney, Noel Grefenson, said his client could not be a danger if authorities waited to charge him for 22 months. Judge Janice Stewart dismissed that argument and set his next hearing for Friday, February 19, 2016.
A family member said the patriarch isn’t dangerous or a criminal and should be released to live at home.
“Mr. Cliven believes in the proper role of government and proper jurisdiction. Where’s the jurisdiction?” daughter-in-law Briana Bundy told The Associated Press by telephone from Bunkerville, Nevada.
“He’s not a flight risk. This is his home. This is where his livelihood is,” she said.
Cliven Bundy is accused of unlawfully directing more than 200 followers to stop federal agents and contract cowboys who were trying to enforce a court order to round up about 400 of his cattle two years ago.
“Witnesses have described the level of threatened violence as so intense that something as innocent as the backfire of (a) vehicle, or someone lighting a firecracker, would have set off a firefight,” according to a 34-page document filed by prosecutors Tuesday, February 15, 2016.
They allege that Bundy and his followers set up traffic checkpoints on public roads and followed and intimidated federal officials trying to conduct plant surveys.
The government said they released the cattle to diffuse the standoff, but failed to mention the cattle were dying under their care.
Federal authorities have said Bundy owes more than $1 million in fees and penalties for letting cows graze for decades on federal land near his ranch. However, the Federal authorities along with Judge Janice Stewart refuse to recognize the United States Constitution in that these lands are not federal lands, but belong to the State and We The People.
One should ask, if Cliven Bundy is so dangerous why has he been allowed to travel as he wished amongst the public since 2014 without an arrest? He must have killed at least 100 people in these last 22 months to get that outlandish description added to his name from a bought and paid for treasonous judge. Bundys attorney is correct, if he was so dangerous to society why didn’t you arrest him earlier, did you want him to harm someone in Nevada? Just like these charges, it’s all fabricated to keep the truth from getting out on the government land grabs on these ranchers and the murder of Robert LaVoy Finicum that recently happened in Oregon.
Although some may disagree with how the Bundy’s handled some things, we should admire their willingness to go balls to the wall against an ever encroaching and tyrannical government.
If convicted of all six charges, Cliven Bundy could spend the rest of his life in federal prison.
It should be noted, Judge Janice Stewart continually violates State and Federal laws by releasing illegals under the unlawful policies of the Obama administration.
For example, Judge Janice Stewart on Friday, February 12, 2016 ordered Illegal Alien Francisco Aguirre to be released while he’s awaiting the start of his trial. Aguirre pleaded not guilty to his charge in court. He was taking refuge at an Oregon church to avoid deportation and was arrested this week on a federal charge of illegal re-entry.
Records show the 35-year-old was indicted by a grand jury in September on the illegal re-entry charge. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials confirmed ICE has lifted its detainer on Aguirre, meaning his removal from the U.S. is on hold pending the outcome of his criminal case.
Aguirre, who came to the U.S. from El Salvador nearly two decades ago, was arrested Thursday, February 12, 2016, at a county court. He was there to settle a case of driving under the influence.
The arrest stems from a past criminal case: Aguirre was deported in 2000 after a drug conviction; he then unlawfully re-entered the country.
DUI, Drug conviction, Illegal entry, Illegal re-entry, Hindering arrest. And he’s free to walk.
