In March of 2016, I reported on the Bureau of Land Management and the leader of the BLM at Bundy Ranch, Daniel P. Love, in a case from 2009 involving Indian artifacts he discovered and the wrongful death of Dr. James Redd. Since that time, I have been in touch with the Redd family, who provided the following information. I have asked that person to compile information pertaining to what took place with Dr. Redd. The following bullet points, videos and information are what I obtained. You can download this file here that are the “attachments” mentioned in the article below.
This article by the LA Times gives a good overview of what happened to Dr. James Redd at the hands of the BLM and FBI.

At least seven of the 46 Senate Democrats who voted against Betsy DeVos, President Donald Trump’s newly-minted education secretary, currently send or once sent their own children or grandchildren to expensive private schools.
DeVos, a long-time school choice advocate from Michigan, was the architect of Detroit’s school charter system and formerly led the Alliance for School Choice advocacy group. She headed the American Federation for Children — which backs school choice for poor and underprivileged families — when Trump nominated her.
Even comments made off campus are now grounds for termination.
By Leo Hohmann for World Net Daily.
Employees of a Georgia school district known for its diversity of refugees and migrants – legal and illegal – are being told not to express themselves on or off campus if their views on immigration line up with those of President Donald Trump.
If their words are considered not “welcoming” of refugees and migrants, they will face investigation and possible termination.
DeKalb County Schools Superintendent Stephen Green issued the statement after Trump’s executive orders banning travel temporarily from seven Muslim countries. In it, Green delivered a stern warning to teachers and staff: Any comments made inside or outside the classroom must line up with the school district’s commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.

World leaders and economists are pushing harder than ever toward a cashless society. With anti-cash measures already being tested in Europe and the Third World, it’s only a matter of time until the global elite push for the same in the U.S. Will globalists’ dream of a cashless society soon become reality?
Plotting in Switzerland
Last month, members of the World Economic Forum, more commonly known as the Davos Elite, met for their annual gathering in Switzerland, and the pursuit of a global cashless society was a major topic on their agenda.
Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, a key member and figurehead for the group, made several statements indicating their intensifying push to eliminate cash. And another major economist from the group, Kenneth Rogoff, echoed similar sentiments.

No flap has ensued at Georgetown University after one of its professors declared, ‘It’s not immoral for one human to own another human.’
By Meira Svirsky for the Clarion Project.
A Georgetown professor of Islamic studies sent shockwaves through the academic and secular world for a lecture he gave essentially condoning Islamic slavery and nonconsensual sex (that’s academic for “rape”).
That would have been the opening sentence to comment on such a lecture if we lived in normal times – which we don’t. The lecture in question actually created very little stir – neither at the university where he is employed nor elsewhere save for some very astute blogs (see here and here) deconstructing the professor’s astonishing breadth of obfuscation.
In a lecture (see below) at the International Institute of Islamic Thought (a Muslim-Brotherhood-linked group) and in subsequent questions and answers following his talk, Georgetown Islamic Studies professor Jonathan Brown, a convert to Islam, declares:
“It’s not immoral for one human to own another human.”

Architect may have let cat out of the bag in 2015
By World Net Daily.
WASHINGTON – Two years ago, the United Nation’s architect of the global “climate change” agenda announced what may be the real goal.
At a little-noticed news conference in February 2015 in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, virtually admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

When does allowing someone to die turn into encouraging someone to die? Always.
Last November, Colorado became the sixth state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. It was and is a terrible idea.
Among the arguments my colleague John Stonestreet and others made was the fact that the so-called “safeguards” in these kinds of laws are illusions. Experience in Europe shows that once you concede the principle that some lives are not worth living, the definition of what kinds of lives are not worth living expands.
As one Belgian law professor put it, “What is presented at first as a right [to die] is going to become a kind of obligation.”
