Ammon Bundy calling a followup citizens meeting tonight in Emmett, Idaho at 8 pm in response to Republican Governor Brad Little's order to stay at home in response to Covid-19. Defense of Constitutional Rights and Liberty on the agenda. Bundy inviting one and all to attend. An initial meeting was held last Thursday night.
Bundy telling viewers in a Facebook video posted yesterday that Governor Little appears to be subordinating the State of Idaho to the reception of federal funds and following the lead of the World Health Organization in his proclamation of a state of emergency in the state.
One other thing Bundy notes in his video is that some 647-thousand Americans die of heart disease every year.
He says that shutting down the state forces the state into the position where it has be the recipient of the federal funds.
(SPECIAL COMMENT-WARTIME SITUATION LEADS TO MISLEADING FAKE NEWS)
We are in a wartime situation at this point with policies being implemented and situations emerging that disturb Americans and make them angry.
The first casualty of war is truth and the intelligence agencies that called Donald Trump a Russian agent are now spreading more untruth in the name of internal and external security.
Negative stories about China because of the virus are obvious. The negative stories about Russia rooted in Russia's response to the increasing US sanctions pressure on it a decision to jack up oil production last month collapsing the oil market and threatening the US shale oil industry.
The "Deep State" intelligence community wants Americans to be more angry with foreign governments than their own governments right now. The state and local governments impose the restrictions while the federal government spends the nation trillions of dollars more into debt.
But our governments are angering Americans and figuratively and literally tearing apart the country's legal and economic structure starting with the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution.
Ammon Bundy mentioned earlier believes in an armed citizenry. A citizenry armed with the Constitution and the facts. He is not interested in violence and or a promoter of it. Let the government do that is his view of the situation.
Its time to speak and report truth in response to the untruth of the moment.
