Here’s John Lamb’s report from the Federal Courthouse in Portland, OR during today’s session of the case of the Feds vs. We the People; otherwise known as US Government vs, Bundy et all.
Today Ammon continued on the stand. It appears he was allowed to get some reality of what those people were doing there out at the Malheur Refuge to the jury. Ammon continued to wear jail clothes.
Jeanette Finicum was also called to the stand today. Judge Anna Brown gave a lot of restrictions in what the widow of the slain LaVoy Finicum would be allowed to say. Court observers reported that there were tears in the eyes of several jurors today, as well there should have been if they are humans with working hearts.
David Fry remains in solitary confinement, but his spirits are good. It amazes me that he is still being held at all, let alone in solitary. I had the honor of meeting Jeff Banta and Sean and Sandy Anderson while I was in Portland. Each time I saw them I thought to myself that David Fry should be able to be there too. He saved all of their lives. Heck, they let Shawna out with an ankle bracelet at first, they could have done that with him. Shame. I am grateful his parents have been there with him this week. At least they were allowed to visit with David. Lisa Bundy, Ammon’s wife, was not allowed to visit her husband when she was here and attended court earlier in the week, and had to watch her husband on the stand. These women are so very strong.
Overall, truth is getting out bit by bit. The Feds have asked very few questions today. One of the odd ones was when they asked Ammon Bundy if it was true that he said he would stay at the refuge until 2036. Ammon responded (paraphrased) no, it only takes 7 years to own the land in Oregon law; refering to the process of adverse possession which is what was actually being attempted, peacefully and lawfully, in Harney County.

Please share, get to Portland if you can, you will never regret standing, and we need to stand, badly.
And yes, John, I wish I was still there as well. God bless you and brother David.
