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.

I am friends with the Hammond Family.  They are good, honest hard working ranchers who as the article states have been charged in what the Constitution calls Double Jeopardy....soon to be incarcerated as Terrorists....which they are far from and do not deserve what is happening to them.

The Federal Government if they wanted to do their job according to our Constitution would be more duly correct to be watching and arresting the ISIS invaders than our common working ranch families, knowing that in fact ISIS does have an agenda which is not peaceful.  ISIS does in fact want to bring on the Caliphate and kill all Christians.  

We need to unite and be dedicated in our own self protection and that of the Hammonds, and the Marine who was unduly arrested...Yes, it can happen to you and to me.


Where does the local sheriff stand on this issue?  If he stands with the Hammonds and can raise a large Sheriffs Posse, deputize the militia, and arrest any federal agent that attempts to enforce an illegal order in his county.  This may be the call needed to rally the people nationally to demand the impeachment of the AG and Obama. 

Harry Reid owns the sheriff.

Heads up folks, if Santilli and Barbeau are "tied up" with legal snafuus, then we need some other warm bodies to cover the action at the Hammond trials and at their homestead!!

Can't any of our police officers, military members see that BO is a TRUE COMMUNIST???????? BO & his Muslim buddies should be the the ones on the "Terrorist Watch list!" Good HONEST CHRISTIANS should be exempt from that list!

That's their game plan.  Put all Conservatives on the terror watch list, then order confiscation of guns from only those people on the terror watch list.

You are right on the money.  They have declared war on us and all we do is chat about it.

We need to organize... start by contacting the local Sheriff, ask the Sheriff to organize a local Sheriff's posse and Militia.  Historically, the Sheriff was the Captain of the local Militia and we need to encourage the Sheriff's in our nation to step up and organize a lawful local militia. A Militia that is well organized and ready to defend the CONSTITUTION against DOMESTIC ENEMIES... any overreaching Federal Forces.

As individuals we are nearly powerless... when well organized, we become a force to be reckoned with.  Peaceful use of a Sheriff's Posse or Militia; one, properly deputized can and should be capable of persuading the Federal Agents sent to violate our Constitutional rights, to restrain their illegal conduct.

The Oath Keepers Organization could be the central impetus for encouraging Sheriff's Posse's and Militia's...  Let's all contact the Oath Keepers Organization, as well as our local Sheriff's, to make inquiries regarding the organizing of Local Militia and Sheriff's Posse's capable of countering overreaching, lawless, Federal Agents... able to keep them from confiscating our weapons, homes, bank accounts, and other property, should they demand our weapons and we refuse. 

We are under serious attack... this Administration intends on using the IRS to seize our homes, bank accounts, retirement and other assets, should we refuse to surrender our weapons on demand.  We need the protection of the State, and specifically the local Sheriff, against such seizures. If these seizures are done remotely, we must be prepared to mobilize the Organized Militia, to peacefully challenge Washington's right to arbitrarily and unlawfully seize the property of citizens... with a lawful and peaceful show of force that they must respect. 

It is coming... the Marxist have a plan and it includes seizure of your assets, should you refuse to surrender your weapons... They plan on accomplishing this by using the IRS and BATF, as the primary federal agency's in charge of confiscation of our weapons... Is it any wonder that the Fed's armed the IRS and purchased 5 Billion rounds of hollow point ammo, built FEMA Camps, and purchased millions of plastic coffins?  Do they know something we don't?  Challenge your local sheriff and state officials to act and too do it now.

The easiest way to organize a group like you are proposing, is to start out with a Neighborhood Watch Group.  Then build on that.

Good idea ISG... suggest that the Sheriff and the local Police Chief, get directly involved, by organizing and training lawful neighborhood watch groups. Make those groups the underpinning force from which to build Sheriff's Posses and an Organized Local Militia.

Keep our actions lawful and peaceful...  Establish well trained, disciplined and organized police and Militia units, capable of being mustered on a 'minutes' notice, as protection against enemies of the US Constitution.  Use the existing laws of the State (militia laws) to build an Organized State Militia, under the authority of the local Sheriff and Chief's of Police.

Fight fire with fire... let the Sheriff assume his duties as the local commander of the Organized Militia and with the power to deputize a force for lawful restraint of overreaching, rouge, government agents.  Where are the Oath Keepers... and defenders of our liberty?  Where is the Oath Keepers Organization and its members... it's time they organize, the federal government is sending all kinds of signals that it intends on disarming citizens and imposing un-Constitutional mandates upon the people by force of arms ... if necessary.  We must be ready to counter the acts of a rouge and lawless Administration.  The Government is the People... it is their will which must be administered by a lawful government, not the will of some oligarchical power, behind a new world order.

Democrat Disaster! 53% Of Black Voters, 60% Of Other Minorities Say Liberal Media Trying To Help Democrats Impeach Trump

Thanks to President Donald Trump ALL Americans now know the mainstream fake-news media is an extension of the Democrat Party.

In a recent poll a majority of black voters and minority voters say the media is trying to help Democrats impeach President Trump.

And half of FOX News too, by the way.

CNS News reported:

Both black voters and other minority voters are more convinced than white voters that most reporters are trying to help impeach President Donald Trump, rather than report the news fairly – with a majority of each of the three groups holding that view – a new Rasmussen Reports survey reveals.

In the national voter survey, conducted November 12-13, 53% of all voters said most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump:

“When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?”:

“Help impeach President Trump”: 53%
“Block his impeachment”: 8%
Report “news in an unbiased an unbiased manner”: 32%

But, 53% of black voters and 60% of other minorities, compared to 51% of whites, said reporters are trying to get Trump rather than report the news fairly.
