Former US Marine Put on Terror Watch List, Held At Gunpoint – Was it because he is helping the Oregon Ranchers?

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 is 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.

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.

In a recording provided to Freedom Outpost by Santilli, you can hear Police Chief Synan claim that Santilli was impeding traffic by using his phone. Then he claims that Santilli was not wearing his seatbelt. According to Santilli, none of that was true. He had been using his electronic vapor and had merely picked up his cell phone to turn on recording once Sanyn began to pull him over.

However, things got extremely intense after the Synan asked for Santilli’s driver’s license and registration. Ohio, being an open carry state, recognizes citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms openly. When asked if Santilli had a gun in the car and where it was, Santilli informed Synan that he did have one and it was for his protection only, was registered to him and in his bag.

At that point, Synan, unprovoked, steps back from the car, unholsters his weapon, points it at Santilli’s head and demands that Santilli and his co-host put their hands in the air. Then he spills the beans on why he really pulled them over.

“Ste… keep your hands up – put your hands up now,” yelled Synan. He demanded it over and over of the two passengers.

As he holds the gun with one hand, Synan radios for backup and openly states, “I need another unit to start this way. Subjects on the terrorist watch list. Got a gun in the car.”

He continues to demand they keep their hands up.

Later, while waiting for other officers to arrive, Synan again states, “90, vehicle matched to the terrorist watchlist – along with names.”

After arresting both Santilli and his passenger, the police go through the car, find the find recording and turn it off.

Santilli told Freedom Outpost that he was in fear for his life. He was taken to jail for a felony charge of illegally transporting a gun, which is pretended legislation against the Second Amendment and the rights of Santilli and the people of Ohio to keep and bear arms.

Freedom Outpost spoke to Police Chief Thomas Synan and he confirmed that Santilli was booked for the gun charge, but would not comment on how he discovered Santilli on the terrorist watchlist nor how he was able to let Santilli off from that charge, as the case is pending.

Somehow a loaded weapon in the car made police more diligent about Santilli’s name allegedly coming up on the list. It isn’t as if the police don’t carry loaded weapons, right? As a side note, it’s my opinion that carrying an unloaded gun is nothing more than carrying an expensive rock.

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.

It seems the charges against Barbeau are being trumped up as the feds claim he had an “assault rifle” with a short barrel, which they claim requires a federal firearms registration, something the Second Amendment knows nothing about. They also claim that he was trying to by a .50 caliber rifle so that it would be “advantageous” for him in a shootout with police.

In addition, they claim Barbeau has been seen in pictures with explosives that the FBI has yet to locate.

One supporter of Barbeau’s said that Barbeau realizes that his government is going to violate constitutional rights and they are going to shoot at him, so he needs to be prepared. What is wrong with that? Isn’t that a part of the Second Amendment’s reference to keeping a free state? I believe that it is.

As a result of the investigation into Barbeau, Special Agent in Charge at the FBI’s Seattle office Frank Montoya Jr. told King 5, “We recently arrested an individual on a domestic terrorism charge. That has caused us some concerns, in the sense – how are his followers, or his friends, how are they going to react?”

My guess is that is exactly how Pete Santilli got on the watchlist, but the question is why he was not arrested under the same kinds of suspicions that Barbeau was. We’ll have more once Santilli’s day in court happens.

The entire obummer regime have been trying to get a revolution going in the USA for 7 years, just get it on.

More than likely. Obama does not like Americans who love our way of life.

Duh. Debra....if you are a Patriot a  veteran, a Christian, love the Founders and our Constitution and are on the list!

Tyrants start by attacking the radical freedom fighters, anyone with slightly tarnished records and anyone they can tell the public they were different in some way, like anyone making comments on conservative Web sites. The public will sit back, like the frog is the gradually warming water, and allow the injustice to grow to boiling.  The tyrants will work their way up the ladder until only the marshmallows that care nothing for our constitutional government are left. 

Just like Mao, Pol Pot, Hitler, Stalin...etc....

You are so right! This has been going on for just took -0- to  bring it to a head! 

I think that it is time for we the American people to place Fedzilla on the Terrorist Watch List!

As an actiing terrorist.............he certainly belongs there...........HOWEVER, WE MUST REMEMBER, THAT SOMEHOW, THESE PEOPLE HAVE ELEVATED THEMSELVES ABOVE THE LAW !


   You wrote:  "Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”

    That certainly tells us who is carrying out the enforcement of law governing of the American People and this country. Somehow, I don't think they have our best interests in mind.  We can either lie down and await our fate or we can stand up and resist the destruction of this country and the American way of life.   IT IS TRULY OUR CHOICE.

Your right. We allow everything that we grip about that our elected do. We allow them to silence us because we don't want to be called a crazy racist, militia member, domestic terrorist, etc, etc. They have turned Patriots into enablers because they don't want to be called something. We have allowed everything that we hate or disapprove of. We have given away everything better men and women died and shed blood for. When We The People stop doing that, we can recharge America. No wonder the world laughs at us instead of respecting us like they used to.

A little rebellion...(Quotation)

"Societies exist under three forms sufficiently distinguishable. 1. Without government, as among our Indians. 2. Under governments wherein the will of every one has a just influence, as is the case in England in a slight degree, and in our states in a great one. 3. Under governments of force: as is the case in all other monarchies and in most of the other republics. To have an idea of the curse of existence under these last, they must be seen. It is a government of wolves over sheep. It is a problem, not clear in my mind, that the 1st. condition is not the best. But I believe it to be inconsistent with any great degree of population. The second state has a great deal of good in it. The mass of mankind under that enjoys a precious degree of liberty and happiness. It has it’s evils too: the principal of which is the turbulence to which it is subject. But weigh this against the oppressions of monarchy, and it becomes nothing. Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem. Even this evil is productive of good. It prevents the degeneracy of government, and nourishes a general attention to the public affairs. I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.1 Unsuccesful rebellions indeed generally establish the incroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions, as not to discourage them too much. It is a medecine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, Paris, January 30, 1787

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
