Glimpses of the Idaho Ranch Invasion and Raid
November 12, 2019
The day that changed our history


It Happened To Us - Idaho Ranch Invasion and Raid
Snipers with assault rifles were staged around our property.
As we said earlier, we realized we were driving into an ambush on the way up the mountain. One family member inside the house provided details of what was happening at the ranch. Audio - Idaho Ranch Invasion. Neighbors and friends were travelling toward us to warn us snipers were in the trees and bushes. Law enforcement had staged snipers on neighboring properties without notifying or obtaining permission from the property owners. We found out later they had been in position since at least the wee hours of Tuesday morning. What was built to be a peaceful mountain retreat was being raided in a excessive police power publicity stunt because of our honesty, transparency, and trust with, and in, Sheriff Chris Goetz. Despite any false narratives released to the public or misrepresentations made to his deputies, Sheriff Goetz knew he and his men were not in danger from our family in entering our property. We had made every effort to communicate and work with every request he had made of us, including meeting him that morning. His militaristic invasion was not an attempt to keep the peace or protect anyone, especially not our family. It was Clearwater County declaring war on an innocent family, their trust, their security, their rights. It was someone we thought was a friend to us and a champion of freedom betraying us and selling out any alleged commitment to human rights for a $40 check. The police powers of the State of Idaho invaded our ranch and violated our rights to privacy, security, and peaceful tranquility when we had committed no crime, were in a place we were lawfully allowed to be, and no judgment against us allowed them to act, do or perform the acts they committed at our ranch. These officers got to feel and act like they were big, bad, scary, and dangerous as they played out their war game scenario. All of this was done at the expense of a patriotic, law abiding, freedom loving American family. Independently and corporately, as they willfully, intentionally, maliciously and unlawfully executed their paramilitary exercise, the value and worth of our American citizenship was trampled under their feet. Was this the day freedom died for America, or just our family?

Just following orders in the State of Idaho on November 12, 2019, meant holding our unarmed American family at gunpoint with AR15 assault rifles while law enforcement officials and their hired accomplices pillaged, looted, and destroyed our personal belongings, treasured memories, and private property. These dastardly deeds were executed without cause, right, warrant, or justification through the comprehensive denial of due process, revocation of our Constitutional rights, and outside the confines of any alleged authority in law. These were not the acts of good guys or peace-loving superheroes trying to keep freedom, liberty, and justice for all alive and well. Rather, these were paid mercenaries of private corporations widely known to be mortgage robbers and terrorists who were just following orders as they used excessive police force to kill the American dream. As a matter of law, fact, and reality, we were in rightful possession of our ranch that morning. Perverted, twisted, oppressive, and tyrannical political agendas precipitated this assault, but do not and cannot change the truths of the matter. Idaho law enforcement and officials from all three branches of our American government attacked American citizens on our homeland by their actions and inactions. Is this still the land of the free and the home of the brave?
