Federal District Judge declares Constitution null and void.
Federal District Judge Gloria Navarro has declared in the Cliven Bundy case that the US Constitution and all it's guarantees and civil protections for US citizen's does NOT apply in her court room.
The first ten amendments to the US Constitution are designed and written as protections for the US citizens against tyrannical Government abuse. But Judge Gloria Navarro has declared that the Bundy defense teams can not cite any portions of the Constitution as evidence in the Bundy trials.
This is precisely why the Constitution was written and why the bill of rights were written in the first place.
Judge Navarro has Disallowed or banned any mention of the following Constitutional items;
Article I, Section 8, paragraph 17 & 18;
17: To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;—And
18: To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
“Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;” But no place in the Constitution does it grant permission to the Federal Government to seize or to own land for any other purposes, and more specifically not for the sale of transfer to foreign powers or entities of US based resources and minerals. (IE; Uranium-One.)
The first ten amendments: The Bill of Rights:
Article [I] (Amendment 1 - Freedom of expression and religion) 13
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Judge Navarro has banned or disallowed any mention of the fact that the Bureau of Land Management attempted to establish a “Free Speech ZONE” far away from any main activities during the raid on the Bundy ranch in 2014. Defense attorneys are NOT allowed to disclose these facts to the jury.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Judge Navarro has banned or disallowed any mention of the rights of the people to bear arms in defense of themselves or their friends and neighbors. According to Judge Navarro “Self Defense “ or the defense of others is NOT a valid argument. Judge Navarro has reportedly stated that “there can not be any such thing as excessive Government force”. In fact Judge Navarro has carried the issue even further in saying that anyone seen carrying any weapons by any law enforcement officers may be arrested and charged with aggravated assault against an officer if that officer sees or even detects a weapon and states that he or she felt threatened in any way. No acts of aggression or hostility are necessary, only the mere sighting or the detection of presence of a weapon is all that is necessary. Even and including any weapons possessed by citizens who also posses a concealed carry permit.
The second amendment has effectively been declared null and void.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Judge Navarro has banned or disallowed any and all mention of this in the Bundy trials.
She will allow only the statement by the prosecutors that a previous court had determined that the Bundy cattle should be removed from Government owned lands. However she then blocks any mention of Article 2, Section 8, paragraph 17 & 18 above which prohibits the Federal Government from “Owning “ that land in the first place.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
“nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
What “Just Compensation” has ever been offered to the Bundys for the seizure of their ranch and cattle? Nothing; In fact the Bundy's (and the Hammonds) were forced to accept demands to relinquish ownership, deeds, and all rights to their property in exchange for renewal of their water rights.
Refusal to accept and comply with these demands by the Bureau of Land Management is part of the reason the Bundy's are currently on trial.
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
“the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial,” The Bundy's and all others have been incarcerated for over nine (9) months. This can hardly be considered a “Speedy” trial.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
The Bundy's and others have been denied any bail or bond by Judge Gloria Navarro.
Nevada District Judge Gloria Navarro through these and other similar court actions has essentially declared the US Constitution null and void. The US Bureau of Land Management through their aggressive actions against the members and family, and friends and neighbors who attempted to defend the Bundy family, have also declared the Constitution null and void.
