The Future of Small Independent Ranchers and Farmers in the West


I will be interviewing John Lamb and Roger Root about the Bundy Trials and the many unanswered questions that still need to be addressed.

John Lamb has been my guest on radio programs over the past several years as a  daily observer to the Malheur and Bundy Trials.  John has kept our listeners informed about the daily trial events and the politically charged actions by the prosecuting attorneys, judges, and government witnesses over the 2 year time frame and various trials. This broadcast will include a recap of the various trials and will outline the many unanswered questions about the future of private property and small independent ranchers and farmers in the west.  John will be joined by Roger Root who was part of the Bundy legal team.  Roger will provide insight into the legal challenges remaining for the Bundy family, and what can be done to make sure these types of injustice are not repeated.


John LambJohn Lamb is a Farmer and Contractor from Southwest Montana who became concerned about the many attacks on private property and personal liberty by the Federal Government. He decided to learn more by attending the trials of the Malheur Defendants and questioning many of the ranchers and farmers losing their land and property rights in the effort to re-wild rural America by radical environmentalists, aided and abetted by the Federal land agencies. What he discovered went well beyond anything he had even contemplated. John has spent the last several months traveling throughout the West, and spent every day in the Portland courtroom listening to Malheur testimony and observing the evidence and courtroom procedures.

Dr. Roger Roots is a criminologist, a criminal defense lawyer and a constitutional historian. Born and raised in Montana, he has traveled the United States widely and studied law, history and sociology from a unique perspective.
