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. For a background on the Hammond story, click herehereand here. Then witness video evidence of the Bureau of Land Management doing the e....

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.

I wish to correct you on your first assertion.

The American Indian had the first form of an elected government, which they still use today.

 .It works Like this:

The village council of elders, which is chosen by common vote of the village elders. Usually are chose because of their wisdom, and ability to lead. 

Each village has a Chief, which is selected by vote of, the members of the council.

His duties is to lead his village in times of need, and act as emissary for his village, selecting the delegates for war chiefs to go before the council of elders to be selected by their skills, combat knowledge, and attitude toward protecting the village.

If that individual fails to do his duties, or dies in battle, the village chief is instructed by the council,  to select other delegates to replace him.

On the tribal level, there are council members chosen by debate, and a vote of the village council of who will represent their village on the tribal council. which will meet periodically, or in times of emergencies on matters affecting the entire tribe.

On matters affecting the whole nation, tribal councils will chose a representative of each tribe to attend a council meeting of all tribes to discuss the situation, and vote on a coarse of action.

The key difference between the Indian government process, and the Republics constitutional form of government, or any other form of government, is that at no time is the individual Indian's freedom to choose his, or her own path ever compromised, in any way.

There are only two laws that every individual is obligate to obey. First and foremost, become a good human being. Second, defend and protect your people at all cost. It does not matter how you do that.

Having said that,  as an elder I am obligated to pass on what I know to be true, a little something I learned from an elder when I was a child. " Education is necessary to acquire knowledge,  but wisdom only comes from the experience of walking the path of your life journey".      


What?  Haven't you heard of Ancient Greece 800 BC... it was the first full democracy in the world, established long before the New World was discovered.  Other examples of elected governments go back to 'Vedic period' of India, 1500 BC... See:

The Native American Indian tribes don't have a recorded history (written history) that extends to that antiquity. Any supposition of elections being held earlier than 1500 BC is a real stretch and mere speculation... with no scientific method to determine its antiquity.

The Gestapo in full force right here in America!!!!

But, it is getting harder and harder to stay under the radar with preparations.  

Robert, you are right there.  I am thinking about getting off of sites like this and especially facebook.

 Oh yes I did!  

According to , Santilli was cleared of being on the terrorist watchlist but he is still charged with having an improperly registered weapon.

The Ohio concealed carry requirements are here  - they are clearly an infringement on the 2nd amendment, but they are the law in the state of Ohio, and Santilli is a resident of that state.

But before leaping to judgement of the cop, consider this:

1.Do you want cops NOT to stop people who are on various lists? That sounds more like the BLM morons,. There is no indication that the cop put Santilli on any list, i.e., the cop was doing his job (unless you can prove that he made up the whole story).

2. The cop had no way of knowing that Santilli was once an active duty marine.

3. If the cop had not stopped Santilli and if Santilli has been a terrorist or criminal, any crimes or acts of terror committed thereafter would have been on the head of the cop.

 I don't agree with what's happened to him and he does good things now but he did vote for Obama. When you vote for people like Obama bad things happen.

I'm ready when you all are

Who voted for Obama?

Pete Santilli. I watched one of his videos about what happened to him and he admitted to voting for Obama. Said he was misled like the rest of the country. Said obama was manufactured. I commented that all Marines were not as stupid under that video. Now I guess his eyes are open. 

There was plenty of reasons to not vote for him at that time. I don't have white guilt so I didn't vote for him. Besides I think voter fraud and other forces had the most to do with him being elected. I don't know why there are any republicans in office seeing that republicans don't challenge voter fraud. Soros vote counting machines didn't help, if that's a true story.

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.”
