This past week, radio show host and former US Marine Pete Santilli and his co-host Debra Jordan were arrested at gunpoint as they prepared for a trip out West to aid and cover the ongoing tyrannical saga involving the Hammonds, a ranching family that the government has targeted as terrorists and planning to imprison the men of the family in January.
Santilli has been covering the Hammond Ranch family out in Oregon, who in a matter of weeks will be seeing the federal government engage in what amounts to double jeopardy against two men of their family. For a background on the Hammond story, click here, here and here. Then witness video evidence of the Bureau of Land Management doing the exact same things the Hammonds are accused of without penalty.
In an exclusive interview with Freedom Outpost, Santilli told us that he was arrested last week. In the initial arrest, the policeman, who happens to be the Chief of Police for Newtown, Ohio, Thomas Synan, Jr. claimed the Santilli was impeding traffic, though that seems contradictory to how he put the two radio hosts under arrest, claiming that Santilli’s name and his vehicle was on the terror watchlist.
What’s quite interesting in the arrest is that local news reports went out of their way to state that Santilli was not on the terror watchlist.
So, why is all of this important, you ask? Well, if a US Marine with no reason to be on the terror watchlist was on it, that tells you all you need to know about who gets on that list and why or why not. It also speaks volumes about the agenda to advance a no-fly no-buy policy that the White House can’t even justify as a means of stopping mass shootings.
On top of that, consider that Santilli now has a court date in January that he must address while also attempting to cover the issue concerning the Hammonds in Oregon which also happens in January, as well as another Marine Schuyler Barbeau, whom a federal judge decided to keep for being suspected of firearms violations in custody, after a US attorney argued he made threats against law enforcement officers and may be in possession of explosives.
Barbeau has been under investigation since June of this year. He was also a part of those who stood with Cliven Bundy at the Bundy Ranch siege in 2014.
