This is the story of Martial law that’s already happening in America. If you’re like me you avoid crying, but that won’t happen today. It’s going to take some courage to listen to this letter from Schaeffer Cox, a man who is locked away in one of Americas most illegal secret prisons. This story represents the deepest wounds of our nation and reveals just how ignorant we have become of the machination of goverment.
From the cells of the Bundy Ranch leaders to the dark halls of Marion and the red blood of our neighbors flowing into the dirt; the weight of what is called justice and what men with badges are allowed to do to other human beings will wash away the pageantry of fake heroism and uniforms and that we pretend keeps us safe.
Americas greatest heroes are those our Sheriffs refuse to defend. These are the people that your politicians ignore even as they tell you justice is their chief concern. These are the people America has forgotten because the truth is too uncomfortable. This is how bad it is and you need to know.
This is the story of political prison Schaeffer Cox. A man who never committed a crime and was locked away in prison for 30 years. This is the story of him seeing his children in a prison room for the first time in 4 years. You can donate Schaeffer to here.
This is the true story of one of America’s most courageous families.
Controversy is a state I’ve learned to live with, a crown of thorns. It’s a crown the Bundy family wears well, because when you stand up for freedom, you will always be attacked by tyrants. My brother and I stood with the Bundys in 2014; we saw the truth and we felt the danger. When Oregon happened there was no question that these men and woman deserved the support of all who love liberty. Their message was pure. But much of America did not feel the same. Why?
Like many activists and prisoners, from patriots to the natives, the hate for the Bundys comes from lies intent on making the story misunderstood. Our “justice” system goes to great lengths to ensure the real story does not reach the masses. This works because we don’t really want to know how bad it is. That’s why it’s important to share a man’s story no matter how you feel about him. To hear it and make sure others do the same, sending it to those who know and to those who do not.
People often say, there’s nothing we can do. But I do something, every day and if you will set aside differences and do something with me, we can set this nation free.
Many don’t know that these men are still in prison. That they are abused and even tortured by prison staff, disregarded by judges and lied about in media propaganda. This is not a story of privileged white ranchers. This is a story about every falsely imprisoned man and woman, black or white, Christian or Muslim, liberal or conservative. A story about the way they suffer every day.
This is HD version that includes all 3 parts. I’ll want to share a little of how it happened, but more importantly I want you do to something. Any of you can make a video, show up somewhere, call a prison, support the suffering or interrupt a meeting of entitled politicians to speak the truth. It’s what America was built on.
When Ammon Bundy asked me to record this story for the world, I knew it was important. Ammon had been working for some time on articulating the real story of his family and those who stood with them. It needed to be open, honest and brief. As always, Ammon had the words, we just needed to do something with them. I figured I would add some stills and video and we’ll push it out. Once I realized what Ammon had poured into this message, I saw a real documentary of America’s darkest times. What resulted took the last three months to finish.
Sound comes first so I setup the call over my computer versus cellular because quality is a problem. Even at that, it took a lot of post production to get the final sound, which still sounds like a phone, but not like a the bad jail phone that it is. We had to work to try and restore some of the richness to his voice, but you still know that it’s coming from a cement prison.
At times Ammon was frustrated, distracted by jail noise, reading on scribbles notes on top of notes. I have been on the inside trying to get a messages out from a jail; it is utterly exhausting in way that you can only know by being there. But Ammon just kept calling back until we had it all.
Next came video. We needed the story and we needed footage to match the story. The Bundy’s and others had clips of critical moments, but there had to be more, so my family and I went to Nevada and camped out for days trying to capture the essence of the ranch. The crowning moment of that was the last evening, the one where you see the Bundy cowboys riding off into the Sunset and the birds flying over the Virgin River. It my 20 years of filming I have never had a shot like those birds. I was glad Carol pushed the boys to saddle up and me to break out the cameras again that final night.
Then came the hard part. As I reviewed the project I realized how much was required and we started collecting more photos, more footage and more of the key bits that took this from a phone call to a full documentary that we had to do around the work at my Studio that pays the bills.
Fine tuning a project of this scale and then laying in a good soundtrack takes time. Sometimes people complain about the music in a video, but it’s essential to the emotion of a story because it conveys in part what you lack in the story by not being there. I was at Bundy Ranch, I know what it felt like, but many do not and that has to be told not only with words but with sound in order to even partially convey the truth of it.
This is not just a story about the Bundys. It’s the story of the struggle every man woman and child in America must face. Freedom, or slavery. I think the finished result is beautiful. I’m always amazed by how well Ammon speaks and even though he could not be here in person, together we managed to defy the evil of our court system in a small way and make a story for the world that is brief, compelling and most of all, the truth.
Thanks for spreading this message. You can share or embed the video and if you need to you can download and re-post it so long as it’s not being sold or used for profit.
Liberty lovers are marching on Portland during the trials of the Bundy’s and others locked away in lawless jails and facing criminal judges. We’re at a protest for the political prisoner led by John Lamb and Kelly Stuart and the more the people stand the more police follow and harass us. My kids are marching as well. After we refuse to stop marching in the street police follow us back to the park and we educate them on what law really is. You’re in violation they tell us. So we explain how they are the ones in violation.
Note. Any nasty comments about my children will get you removed. Haters of liberty may attack me, but not my family.
It’s time for the killing and abuse to stop. People have a right to stand up. We cannot support Americans police and support the Constitution. JUSTICE for all lives. It’s time to get real.
In times like these we start asking ourselves hard questions. While most Americans go about their days asleep to the the suffering coming on our children, some of us are carrying the heavy burden and looking for real answers.
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort” — US Constitution Article 3:3
The government of the United States is levying war against the people and our laws. In our homes, on our roads, in our courts and in our legislatures. When this nation was founded these events had been foreseen. Men like John Locke, on who’s writings our Republic was inspired, make this very clear.
In all States and Conditions the true remedy of Force without Authority, is to oppose Force to it. The use of force without Authority, always puts him that uses it into a state of War, as the Aggressor, and renders him liable to be treated accordingly. — John Locke, Second Treatise.
Read our the Declaration. Read the Affirmation that over 700 patriots signed when we defied new gun laws in Washington a year ago. A simple method of telling a real terrorist is that the terrorist terrorizes, abusing and killing innocents.– They accuse and charge us in their courts with the very crimes they commit!
What are we to do?
We stand on the edge of revolution; but that does not mean we seek violence or vengeance. We seek peace, just as LaVoy did. But we must be willing to stand.
Bloody revolution alone rarely restores liberty; repentance can. With repentance and principle liberty can be restored to a nation that has once forgotten what good and evil is. We have a moral right and duty to disobey an unjust government. I would especially remind my Christian brothers, to honor tyrants is treason to Christ.
When you see military vesicles rolling across public roads to assault men of peace. When you watch them punish and enslave those who love the law of this land. When you watch them kill our friends and neighbors, arrest reporters aim guns at mothers; make no pretense; these officials, officers and bureaucrats are nothing but what our laws say. They are enemies of this nation, more polite, but as wicked as ISIS itself and they overthrow our Supreme law. These officials commit sedition and treason against us, their masters who hold lawful authority and their God given rights.
We have come to this because we are apathetic, because we care more for pleasures more then for principle. Politicians are still playing politics; Americans are wearing the shiny shackles of a happy slave and Christians are not following Christ. We don’t have to all agree on matters of faith. But a nation must maintain it’s values to survive.
“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other” – John Adams
I submit that God is not blessing America because we are not blessing God. We must seek mercy, turn to liberty and stand boldly against evil. Our nation may have to endure a great suffering, for our populace has become not only blind, but willingly numbed to the abuse and suffering of their neighbor, from the child in the womb to the neighbor on their street.
Tyranny will never end until WE THE PEOPLE have the principle to affirm that the unlawful suffering of our neighbor is as evil as if it were ourselves!
We carry on. We stand, but we must be wise, peaceful and principled. Set aside the politics, the distractions, the false security and the lies. Love your neighbor. Stand on liberty.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” — Samuel Adams
“So you’re a Constitutionalist?.. We’ve had problems with this before!”
This is what we have become America. A nation of slaves where dissenters are punished and the wicked rule. This has nothing to do with agriculture. It’s all about control.
Listen to these lawless officials. They KNOW they are trampling liberty and are doing it with a smile on their face and mockery in their voice. You need to understand. This is not entertainment folks. Your children’s liberty is GONE! America is gone!
It just happened a couple weeks ago to our patriot friends the Feinman’s and I just finished helping them compile the clips. I’ve never seen anything quite like this. I refused this checkpoint a few years back. These bureaucratic terrorists are getting far more bold and the tactic is changing. This family had no obligation to stop and no obligation to ID since they were not even stopped by the officer but rather were pulled off. It was an illegal engagement in every way.
Some will say this is about showing ID. Some will say, “what’s the big deal”. Still others will say “you should not do this with children in the car”. It’s time to get serious people. Government is ATTACKING liberty. It is our duty to take a stand and show our children how to defend it. Liberty does not end when our kids are in the car. It begins. This video is what patriotism looks like. Thank the Feinman’s for their brave stand and SUBSCRIBE to their channel HERE.

With a laundry list of crimes committed by these officers, they should be punished. Sadly we have a system in injustice where courts, police and corrupt politicians all work with each other. If the County was doing his job, he would not even let such a checkpoint operate in his County. Much less let them assault innocent travelers.
