Ryan Bundy's Opening Statement: "This Is Not What America Is Supposed To Be..."

Authored by Tim Brown via FreedomOutpost.com,

Sometimes, in the process of covering so many things and in the attempt to provide as much information and commentary as possible, we simply are not able to provide all that we wish to do so to the public.

However, that does not mean other stories and commentary are not important.  In fact, many things coming out of alternatives media today are vitally important for those coming off the government-controlled media.

One of those items that didn't hit the mainstream media, and sadly didn't hit much of the alternative media, was the opening statement of Cliven Bundy's son, Ryan, as the trial of the century began nearly two weeks ago.

In light of that, I've been meaning to post his opening statement because it is certainly on that Americans should familiarize themselves with and quite possibly, should a fair history book be written, may go down in a Patrick Henry-esque fashion.

So, without further ado, here's Ryan Bundy's opening statement (H/T Gary Hunt) that was delivered to the jury in the Bundy Ranch trials on November 15, 2017.  Read and remember.

*  *  *

Thanks to the jurors for being here. I told you a little about myself at voir dire, but I’d like to introduce myself a little more, and tell you about my heritage and how that affects my case. (Projects a picture of his family - AND leaves it up throughout his statement!)

[Note: the picture shown above.]

This is my ID! Not my driver’s license. This is who I am, a man with a family and I’ll do whatever it takes to provide for them. I want you to picture in your minds…you’re out on the land… I’ll take you to our ranch, you can see all the beauty of the land, the fresh air, sunsets and sunrises, the brush, you’re on a horse in front of the cattle - place yourself there - feel the freedom - out of the congestion of the cars - that’s how I was raised, playing in the river, we were called river-rats and that is where my life began and I hope ends.

My family has been on that land 141 years, my pioneer ancestors settled there in 1877 - there was nothing there. They carved out a living… they brought a horse and wagon and some provisions… this case, the government mentioned is “not about rights”, but it is - those rights do mean something - rights are created through beneficial use. When my ancestors arrived, undoubtedly the horse would need a drink, so they led him to the water and that is beneficial use. The horse and perhaps a cow that had been led behind the wagon need to eat some brush in the hills, that is beneficial use. That established rights. The water rights are real! So real, the State of Nevada has a water rights registry including livestock watering rights. A law was created to protect those rights. The water rights that my father owns were first registered in 1891 by the State of Nevada - the State of Nevada is important, a sovereign state, its own unit, which entered the union in 1864. It entered equal to the original states, it is its own entity and state laws are important.

My family and I are charged with some grievous things and they are not true and evidence will show they are not; force, manipulation, extortion, violent—my family is not a violent family and I am not a violent man. For 20+ years we turned to local law enforcement. Rights are real property. The fact is that we create government to protect rights.

To have rights you must claim, use and defend… man only has rights he is willing to claim, use and defend. There is a difference between rights and privileges. Rights you own. Privilege is afforded. Like renting or owning a house. Government asserts there are no rights, only privileges and unless we pay, we can’t be there. The State of Nevada says differently. These are my father’s rights. Everything we have comes from the land. That is wealth, not the dollar bill. The things we use all come from the land. Who controls the land, controls the wealth.

We create government to preserve and serve us. These are some of the beliefs of my family. That we have said we will do whatever it takes to defend is not a threat, it is a statement. Being right here before you today is part of doing whatever it takes. The Founding Fathers pledged whatever it would take… their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, to defend rights. With the evidence you will see that is what we were doing; there was no conspiracy to impede, to harm… but, to protect our heritage that our pioneer ancestors established. We were attacked, surrounded by what appeared to be mercenaries, snipers pointed directly at me. You will hear a report from a sniper that he was keeping watch of me in my van, with my wife and two of my daughters with me.

Our ranch - children are always welcome - it is a place to play, play in the river, the pond, chase or hunt rabbits, burn your toes in the hot sand in summer—always free. Never before did we feel like someone was always watching. In early spring of 2014 we felt like someone was always watching… the dogs were watching the hills, when you are always with a dog you get to know what they are saying with their bark… you can tell by their bark what they are seeing… surveillance cameras on one hill, but the dog looking at another and growling… (tearfully) This is not what America is supposed to be. Supposed to be a land of liberty. The Founding Fathers fought and bled so we wouldn’t have to and now we find ourselves in a similar situation.

They say this issue is over grazing fees… it’s terrible, terrible, he must be a freeloader - it’s only rhetoric - I’ll tell you why - You don’t pay rent when you own your home! We own those rights! Not the land, I know we don’t own the land, but access…you and others have rights on that land. We own water and grazing rights. We don’t pay rent for something we own.

The BLM was formed in 1960. Our rights were established in 1877, long before BLM. The original states own 100% of their land and all states were to come in on equal footing. The crux of the issue is,  are we a state or not? They say grazing is a privilege they can revoke and charge fees. If it is only a matter of money it is no problem. In fact, Mr. Whipple showed a copy of a check made out to Clark County. If the whole purpose is to show we owe a fee, then we’ll pay to the proper owner of the land. That was not the only check written to Clark County, we sent several. Also, in Clark County, there were 53 ranchers who owned rights. There is only a single one still out on the range. The BLM is not gaining revenue, it’s not important to them. My father could see they were there to manage him out of business. It’s not about grazing fees. In the BLM office there were signs that read: No more Moo by ‘92 and Cattle Free by ‘93! If it were only about the grazing fees, the fees would have been under $100,000 over 25 years. It is rumored, it may not be seen in evidence, but it is rumored that they spent $6 million on the operation. Who spends that and court costs rumored to be over $100 million to collect $100,000?

What is this about? The court orders. They say my father had an opportunity in the courts. The court wouldn’t consider states rights. They have forgotten they are servants of the people. We the people are the sovereign and ultimately, we the people are the government formed to meet needs that are better met by a group than by individuals. We are not slaves. We need to remember that. I think that’s forgotten. The definition of freedom is lost in America. When we have to have a license or ask permission to do everything, we are subjects.

Back to the charges - they claimed I went to Richfield and that the sheriff had to be called because we were causing such a ruckus—evidence will show otherwise—we boycott to influence to change ways - we protest to cause a change - these are first amendment rights - we do not get rights from the Bill of Rights - we have rights to begin with - it should be called the Prohibition of Government - we have freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, we can petition for a redress of grievances—rights we don’t want the government to mess with.

A redress is to find an answer, find a solution - one way to protest. The BLM put up first amendment zones - not much bigger than this courtroom - we called them pig pens - by creating that area, they were denying our right everywhere else - that’s what they used to arrest my brother - he was outside the pig pens. The first amendment has been protected over and over again in our history. There’s lots of media in the gallery today, they wouldn’t be happy to have their right to free speech taken. First amendment was put in the Supreme Law of the land, the Constitution - they shall make no law restricting these things… as you saw in the video yesterday, my brother was not impeding, not blocking, he was on a state road, on its right-of-way, simply to take pictures with his ipad of them stealing our cattle - they attacked him, threw him to the ground, rubbed his face in the ground. (emotional) The American public saw this and came not to impede or do harm. They came because they felt the spirit of the Lord, spirit of freedom and felt “we the people are not going to put up with that behavior”. It was not pointed out there were snipers on the hill, I witnessed that through binoculars and the evidence will show this.

Back to Richfield, Utah, evidence and witness testimony will show there was not a ruckus there that disrupted or shut down that auction. I called the sheriff - that’s the pattern - the local law enforcement and state brand inspectors in Nevada, Arizona and Utah and I had contact with the highway patrol, county commissioners in several counties and state officials - not all face to face, but some through phone calls. Is this what a criminal does? No. We were there protecting life, liberty, property. You saw the video of them hip chucking my Aunt Margaret, 50+ years of and just finished with cancer treatments, the mother of 11 children. They call these BLM guys law enforcement, but they are just BLM employees. All authority comes from we the people, we delegate authority to the county sheriff who we elect and he hires deputies and we then have a sheriff’s department to protect our life, our liberty, our property. Choosing for yourself is freedom and we have no right to impede or harm others. That’s God’s law. Man-made law is to follow that. Man is supposed to be free, not controlled, serfs or slaves. Government is to be our servant. The government went in and shut down 600,000 acres - not one of us ever went into their enclosed area and never impeded them. Even my brother driving into the dump truck… isn’t that impediment? The court order did not allow destruction of water infrastructure. What was a dump truck doing out there? Since that was beyond the scope of the supposed court order, we had a right to know. They could have stopped and answered our questions, but no, they set out attack dogs and tazers and threw Aunt Margaret to the ground. Every incident they are charging us with happened on property that belonged to the State of Nevada. Even if BLM had authority to close public land, they have no authority to close State of Nevada public land. The fence was on the State of Nevada land. Except by invitation, you will not see one of us breach that fence or impede the gather. We did not violate the court order. Dave went over the fence by the invitation of Dan Love and then the sheriff took over and asked for our help to take down the fence and then the cowboys, led by sheriffs squad cars went to release the cattle. The sheriff honored his oath and did his job. He should have done it sooner.

I love my family. I love them. I love this land. I love freedom. I am from the State of Nevada. I’m a true Nevadan. I mentioned before that Nevada became a state on Oct. 31st and we always got out of school on that day… I always thought we got out because it was my birthday. I’m a true Nevadan. I believe you are, too, and love freedom as much as I do. Freedom’s not being lost overseas - it’s lost right here at home in our back yards, our front yards. Until we are willing to do whatever it takes, liberty will be, is being lost. We are not anti-government! Government has its proper place and duties to perform. I want government to do its job. Nothing more. Nothing less. When government does more or less than its job, it becomes the criminal. When government damages our rights, it becomes the criminal. When someone harms or damages another’s life, liberty or property that is the definition of a criminal. Extortion, violence, pointing guns - everything we are charged with, they were doing and thousands of people came running - the world knew about this - China, Ireland (they sent us a flag), New Zealand and other countries - why? Because America stood for freedom and has for years and the world is interested in seeing how America (emotional) will deal with freedom. The world wants to know. The American people said, “yes, we will stand for freedom. Government, you’ve gone too far and we will put a stop to it.”

The courts have a place. It is said that We the People are the fourth branch of government. I say we are the first. The legislature to make laws, the executive to execute laws and the judicial to judge. All three branches are to protect your rights, our rights, freedom, liberty. Government does not have the authority in and of itself - man creates government to fulfill and protect rights. We the people give government the authority through the Constitution. The tenth amendment insures state’s rights.

Evidence will show my father and my brothers are innocent men. We need you to put on that paper that we are not guilty. You are the twelve to represent us, peers, equals, people…we the People.

Guns…lots of guns…scary…camo…freedom of speech…also, the right to bear arms, the second amendment…a militia was necessary. What is a militia? It is defined in the law. U.S. Code defines militia: “all able bodied men 17-45 years of age”. How many of you are a member of the militia? State of Nevada extended that and includes men up to the age of 64. How many of you now are a member of the Nevada militia? There is the organized militia, the National Guard and the unorganized militia - everyone else. Why did the Founding Fathers include the second amendment? Was it for duck hunting? No…no! Militia is mentioned six times in the Constitution. Such a small document and few things are mentioned more than the militia; the central government of this union and yet media or whatever wants to put a bad face on militia. Why did militia come to Bundy Ranch? To peacefully assemble, redress of grievances. No one was harmed except Davey, Ammon and Margaret. You will not see in evidence that we ever harmed anyone! They attack and we turned the other cheek. We were peaceful—insistent? Yes! And, Yes! Demanding. These men, these people did not come to seek an opportunity to point guns at the government. Hundreds, even thousands of people we didn’t know. That’s exemplary. These people came to do good. To protect me, to save my life. I had a sniper pointing at me, 200 armed men surrounding my home, my family (tearfully) Ryan Payne has been portrayed as a bad man. Evidence will show otherwise. He saved my life. He saved my life. Others came. I didn’t even meet most of them until I was in jail with them, may have seen them in passing, but I didn’t know them until jail. I honor and thank them now! I thank all who came. We only have rights we are willing to fight for. You’ll see evidence that I was nearly always with the sheriff or a deputy - always in communication with them - I was side-by-side with Lombardo.

Thank you for coming, for being here. I will still do whatever it takes. This is not a threat, it is determination. I love my freedom. Listen to the still small voice to discern between truth and error. The indictment and grand jury testimony is full of lies. Truth has been blocked in previous trials. Listen closely - we will try to get you the truth. The truth will set me free and I’m counting on you to help me see that.

I invite you to our ranch. I recognize your right to use the land. We want you to come and enjoy it. I thank you for this time. Please find me not guilty and these other men not guilty. Stand up for freedom. Thank you.

This article sums up the whole issue with the Govt and lack of freedom - a bit long but a good read enjoy --> https://nomomrniceguy.wordpress.com/2017/11/22/the-altered-states-of-america/

That's the problem in America! They believe what people are telling them. Bundy is a Mormon! They have different views of America than we do, I suggest you check it out for yourself. Notice all the children??? He is a fale prophet for the Mormon church.

Vin's picture

You're the moron.  He's not stating views, he's stating facts.

BritBob's picture

Things aren't what they are supposed to be -

Critics of the Argentine government’s strategies and rhetoric toward the islands have coined a new verb – malvinizar – to describe how the claim for and memory of the Malvinas is used simply to divert attention away from more serious domestic socio-economic challenges .

 Seriously, have you heard of a territory being usurped in the 19th century?

Fuck you, TwitBob! I wipe my ass with your claim on the Malvinas. They belong to Argentina, not the fucking British "Empire".

FoggyWorld's picture

Go away Bob.  You are behaving disgracefully.

AurorusBorealus's picture

Bob.  Maybe you can explain to me how, under international law, the British flag on these rocks gives Britain "rights" to all the oil up to 100 nautical miles off the coast of Argentina.  This is not about "sovereignty" over some fish-wives and goat-herders.  This is about Britain stealing a billion barrels of oil.  This is about national sovereignty over its territorial waters and national resources.  This is about "rights."  England has no "right" to plant a flag half-way around the world and then use this flag to steal other nations' resources.  I am sure, you and all your Britbob friends would be apoplectic if Argentina planted a flag on a rock in the North Sea and then laid claim to all of BPs holdings.  Do not make an argument to me about 'rights."  The basis of England's claim to Argentine oil is by force of naval arms: nothing more.  The real argument is: Argentine oil is the property of England because we have a superior navy... period.

Do not worry, Bob.  Time is on our side.  Keep allowing ravaging, raping hoardes of your Muslim brothers to overrun England, Bob.  One day soon, the Malvinas will plead with Argentina to join us rather than be subject to English shariah, and you will have to send your navy down here again to bomb the Malvinas into the Muslim Brotherhood.  As "prisoners of war," under English Shariah law, you will be allowed to rape the women and the children of your precious Fauklands: or will you rename the islands to the "Fatwas."

Britain = Baron aka King Roth$child + Queen Elizabeth von Schickel-Cohen of Hanover and Haifa.

The Falklands/Malvinas has 80 billion barrels of oil very close to the island.

Y'all hoping that Sessions is rope-a-doping up there in DC...and is gonna start swamp draining any minute...he has come out and praised the prosecution in this fiasco.

Did Bundy Owe Millions? See For Yourself!


Total trespass fees were only $8,815.50.

Administrative Fees added to this are $283,776.00

Add a $10.00 Service fee and the total comes to $292,601.50.

*Bold added by me.

Yet one more reason why Sessions has to go.

you would be in jail if you had..or dead..

check out the fate of those that attended the first bundy stand off

I'm no Rambo or hero, just a regular guy that's getting tired of being pissed off. I bet a lot of regular guys thought about going but didn't. It might have made a difference.

oregon was a bad move.. nevada was a turning point.. but i think they blew it when they tried to start a fight in oregon.

they should have employed some good juice lawyers and sued the shit out of the blm over nevada..

Kassandra's picture

Oregon was not a good move. But the jury in Portland found all 7 not guilty.


Ms No's picture

They actually did fight the feds and won but it turned out that the state couldn't enforce anything on the feds.  How it all really started is that the feds wanted to steal the cattle pond/lake on Bundy's land.  So they literally built a federal fence on Bundy's land and cut his cattle off of water.  Even if it's on your land if you touch federal property you are screwed.  He fought them in court and won but they refused to move it.  So he put equipment in their way.  He also continued to do prescribed burns that have always been done and you maybe get a 50 dollar fine for.   Between those two things he was given terrorism charges.  That old man will likely die in prison over that too.  Nobody knows anything about this.  They did a great job of making sure that didn't happen.

Ms No's picture

I meant to type the Hammonds not the Bundys.  Shit, I keep doing that. 

STP's picture

I was at Nevada, as you all know, but declined to go to Oregon and agree that it was a bad move.  Bad timing, bad weather and a shitload of infiltrators.  But he went to defend the Hammonds, who were scared shitless by the full force of the Feds squeezing their balls for years and then, finally trying them for arson, for setting a backfire, for God's sake.

Pete Santilli put together the Hammond Legal File and I'm going to provide the link here.  You'd be disgusted at the crap that they got put through.  600 pages of correspondence between the Hammonds and an army of fucking bureacrats...





Ms No's picture

I am glad you didn't go to Oregon because that set-up was theirs.  That played into their hands way too well.  That wasn't the right circumstance, as we now see.  I don't blame people for wanting to but you always have to watch out for these treacherous pieces of shit that are infiltrating everything.  Going to fight over a government building, that clearly belongs to them, is not the high ground that people are going to understand.  All we have is the high ground to fight from.

If somebody sacrifices themselves (and that is clearly what this would be about) it needs to be over something they very clearly have the right on and is easily understandable, otherwise you lose ground and people die for nothing.  It's essentially martyring and propaganda.  What they should have done is invite the feds to watch their fence, that they arbitrarily placed on Bundy's land, (to try to kill his cattle and usurp HIS LAND when he financial fails as a result of their sabotage) be removed.  Don't worry they will always provide opportunities because they are not going to let up on us.  Sadly how these things are effective, is that it is a tear jerking sacrifice, not because it's a fight.  These are of course fights that can't be won by force.  It's about igniting something that bypasses their bullshit lies and propaganda.  It's basically about holding ground and getting shot.  If the feds take casualties then it's all about the poor poor feds against the crazies.  Then they gain more ground. 

Finnicum was a real sacrifice for America, not the BS kind where people send their kids to kill Iraq.  Unfortunately his sacrifice didn't get the recognition it deserved because it was all wrong and they had him surrounded by people who discrediting everything quite effectively.  I absolutely believe that he knowingly attempted to martyr himself and maintain an unassailable moral position.   


chunga's picture

There's never going to be a perfect time or situation. If everybody in the country spent the 90 minutes to watch the outstanding documentary "American Standoff" the imperial city would be burned down to the ground imo.

Ms No's picture

Exactly, it's a message that needs to be communicated and understood.  We have no media to represent us and so that has to be bypassed.  If they would have gone about it right the US population wouldn't have to watch a documentary to know what they hell they were even trying to stand up against.  Anytime somebody holds their ground they should attempt to clearly display that they are in the right.  That is everything.  If somebody gives their life to send a message, there better be a message.  It's should be apparent.  You don't want to be baited into something that has the exact opposite result that you desire.  They will always try to steer any resistance movement.  The first rule should be: First do no harm.            

Freddie's picture

Bundy's had a lot of backup when that all went down.    Those BLM "employees" at Bundy's were Academie/XE/Blackwater guys.  One of the ugly MF'ers at the gate as the cowboys were trying to get the cattle back had been seen in pictures in iraq and Afghanistan.

Dan Love:


It says he is a long time BLM thug but I swear he is spec ops contractor. 

STP's picture

He was an operator.  It's been scrubbed, but I personally saw him in a Discovery Channel episode on Afghanistan.  And like all 'operators', they all like Oakley's.

I am amazed SB, at how some of the negative comments are running on this young man's life, and family. I am in your court, I've just read the best articulation of what it means to be a free man, against the tyranny the state wants to impose by dictate. It reminded me of Waco, Ruby Ridge, and what could have happened here. I am thankful that the snipers did not smoke him as he tried to work within the system.

I just hope that the jurors had "ears to hear".

Skateboarder's picture

I pray to god that some iota of his justice is still around and us misguided people don't find an innocent and honorable man "guilty."

If American at large knew about this case and this speech was televised on teevee for everyone to hear, a lot of good people will be mighty pissed off.

"He is crazy" - says every Millennial that attended .gov schools.  America ended in 1913.  At least I knew and talked to people who were once truely free.  They would kick our collective asses if they were still alive.  Turn out the lights por favor.   

Anonymous_Beneficiary's picture

True freedom is just an abstract term...no one has probably ever experienced...you mean to tell me everyone in America was truly free in 1912 and everything changed on a dime in one year? So how truly free was everyone in 1912 that the tables were turned so suddenly?

Freddie's picture

They financially backed the US "Civil" War so they took over around 1861.   When they were finished with Abe the stooge, they killed him.   After the war, caroet baggers from Khazar land flooded into the South.

They weren't sliding money out of your wallet by printing funny money to devalue it, for one.

Go sit in jail for a year like Bundy and come back and tell us how abstract freedom is.

Anonymous_Beneficiary's picture

You don't have to be in jail to be doing time, bro. And I've done more than a year for political crime, thanks. I would posit the souls inside those walls are, as a whole, more free from illusion than those outside the walls.

So those fiat (greenbacks, in case you didn't know) Uncle Scam's trashury department was issuing beginning in 1863...wasnt value being slipped out of the collective's wallet? Lol I think you need a history lesson. I can give more pre 1913 examples if you wish?

our government has gone rogue..

that asshole is full of shit.  i'll bet he treated anyone on that land he says he doesn't own as a trespasser.  i've seen that type.  they run everyone out with intimidation even when they have a right to be there only this time the gubbermint wasn't scared.  breedtard pig fucker asshole i hope he rots in jail.

Don't be so sure. This is a good start for people who don't know what happened. Mrs. Hammond talks about Ammon Bundy.

i'm sure his friends, neighbors, fellow church members liked him fine.  i'm also sure that you wouldn't want to be a hippie walking down the road at night past his house.  fuck him.

truthfully..fvk them too..

did i mention the banksters?

STP's picture

Hippie being treated bad?  God, are you stupid.  When I was in Mesquite that infamous week, one hippie-like guy, showed up at 2 AM, right next to my car.  He rode his motorcycle 16 hours, straight, from San Francisco and only had a bedroll on the back.  I offered him what food and water I had and we talked, him telling me, he had a huge fight with his girlfriend, because she didn't want him to go, but he had the same hard pull on his soul, that I did, he fucking went.   Unlike you.

And we gathered there at dawn, when I got up in the crisp morning air.  They were cooking a communal breakfast across the road at the bridge and a couple pulled up in a rental car at 7 AM.  He was a retired police chief from Australia and him and his wife, FLEW ALL THE FUCKING WAY TO LAS VEGAS FROM AUSTRALIA, mother fucker!  Then they rented a car and drove an easy two to three hours east to join us, fucking asshole!  And at 7:30, a guy on a Harley Road Glide, pulled up from New Mexico, asshole.  And all four of us, stood there, brothers of a cause.  We risked it, we did it and I'm fucking proud I went.  I wasn't exactly unfearful of going, I'll tell you that much, dick face.  I was nervous going out.  Didn't know what to expect, but I met the greatest bunch of Americans, I ever met in my life.

And you know what, I still have that blue and white striped sticker that you put on your chest at conventions:  "Hello My Name Is: Domestic Terrorist".

So until you have the balls to call anybody out, next time something like this comes up, don't bitch at us.

STP, you and the others that were there are the bedrock of America. Many more will stand when the time comes, but no one knows if it will be enough.The following is written in honor of your stand.

The fuse is lit,

but the burning is slow.

Don't count us out if we are not fit,

For we know how to swim against the flow.
