Hour 3 - Jeanette Finicum (LaVoy's widow) on the premier of LaVoy: Dead Man Talking at Red Pill Expo
Jeanette Finicum is the widow-turned-activist of the late LaVoy Finicum who was killed in 2016 by Federal and State troopers in Oregon. She is locked in a heated legal battle with the government to defend our liberty and to hold responsible parties accountable.
The Bureau of Land management, the FBI and other government agencies thought that ranchers would be easy and weak targets for over-reaching bully tactics that ultimately resulted in the unlawful death of LaVoy Finicum. Little did they know or expect that his widow, Jeanette, would rise to stand at the center of one of largest battles ever waged against rogue government agencies. Americans across the nation have rallied to her cause, realizing that they could just as easily be in the crosshairs if these agencies are not brought under control.
In its second blockbuster year, G. Edward Griffin's Red Pill EXPO will convene in Spokane Washington from June 21 through June 23 to bring to account fake news and fake history.
The EXPO will feature over 24 nationally-known speakers, including G. Edward Griffin, Robert Kiyosaki, Lord Christopher Monckton, Tom DeWeese and Patrick M. Wood.
In addition, the kickoff on Thursday night will feature the world premiere of LAVOY: Dead Man Talking, a film produced by the Center for Self Governance to chronicle the wrongful homicide of Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum at the hands of Federal and Oregon State Troopers on January 26, 2016.
"Red Pill EXPO intends to set the record straight on many false narratives that are causing great harm to our society", according to organizer G. Edward Griffin. "Our speakers are widely-acclaimed experts in their respective fields and highly qualified to address topics like the Second Amendment, the 'deep state', failing education and the buildup of the total surveillance state", he said.
"People are coming from all over North America and from several foreign countries", noted Debbie Bacigalupi, the EXPO's Event Coordinator, "This is a place where people can network together, hear great speakers and discover that they are not alone", she continued.
Although several hundred people will attend the EXPO in person, the entire event will be live-streamed over the Internet to people around the world. "We have tickets to fit every budget and need", said Bacigalupi, "including a low-cost streaming option for those who cannot attend in person."
When asked if the organizers are concerned about protestors at the conference, Bacigalupi responded, "We expect to attract protestors just like we did last year, but we will work closely with local law enforcement to ensure a safe and uneventful experience for our attendees."
LaVoy: Dead Man Talking will draw you into the tale of a dreamy life and epic death of one of the last Wild West American cowboys—LaVoy Finicum. Regardless of which political side you fall on, his story is so compelling, tragic, and iconic that we found ourselves constrained to add this bio-documentary about his journey to our Governed V Governing series.
A Simple Cowboy
The raw nature of this film is the deep desire to strike a balance between learning from and educating about these real life stories, while neither vilifying nor vindicating LaVoy's decisions and actions leading up to his death. And while his freedom of conscience is deeply sacred, both the LaVoy Finicum family and the film's producers recognize and understand that to neglect the study of political strategy would be a travesty to future preservation of life, liberty, and property.
LaVoy's Memorial, Highway 395
This story needs to be told in its entirety, void of misrepresentations. The outcome will inspire more of today's culture to ask hard questions of itself with the intent to seek difficult-to-find answers. This Cowboy's story will stir within the soul of each viewer a need to embark on the challenging endeavor to discover the delicate line that separates preserving and losing life, liberty, and property.
This Story Is Not About Cows!
The iconic Wild West, cows & cowboys way of life are giving way to the 21st century. Putting that into perspective, 99% of the current American public doesn't own a cow, let alone heard of or know what "grazing rights" are. In a world of city life and virtual existence, it is difficult to empathize with the mosaic of an open range, spotted with cows, a cowboy and his dog, moving the herd, day to day, from sunup to sundown.
On April 12, 2014 a group of cowboys and non-cowboys, a few armed and the vast majority not, at the behest of a ranching family—the Bundys—came face-to-face with heavily armed federal agents on a patch of desolate dried up river wash in Northwestern Nevada. It was EPIC—we were there and filmed it!
Surprisingly and profoundly life, liberty, and property were preserved that day. No one died, no one went to prison, and the Bundy cows (their property) were returned. The story was so epic that to this day we use it in our Applied Civics classes and we made it into Part I – The Bundy Standoff of our Governed V Governing documentary series. One of the cowboys there that day was LaVoy Finicum. Little did he (or we, for that matter) know that his standing with the Bundys (2014) was the beginning and his going to Oregon (2016) would be the ending of a profound life's journey.
It Matters How You Stand
LaVoy said, "I'm just a redneck doing the right thing… was never one to poke people in the eye or cause trouble. I always stood in line, rose my hand, and never had a parking violation." LaVoy definitely does not fit the description of 'loose cannon' or 'hothead'. Interviews with his family and footage from his own homemade videos bear witness that he was more family man and ranching cowboy, than closet criminal.
The LaVoy Finicum family
So what changed in LaVoy's life, why did he go to the 2014 Bundy Standoff? Why did he go to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in 2016, and on his way to a meeting in John Day ended up stepping out of his truck into a hail of bullets? In answering these questions we review his personal footage, interview his family and those associated with him in Oregon to discover the motivations, frustrations, and resolve that prompted his fateful decisions.
LaVoy Speaking to the Press
You will be shocked by his own words and actions when compared to the picture painted by the media and cemented into the collective memory of the American mind. Our film gives LaVoy Finicum the opportunity he never got—to tell, in his own words, how he came to his final decision on January 26, 2016.
The Final Verdict
Everyone who was there with LaVoy on that fateful day, was acquitted in an Oregon Federal Court. This film gives the dead man his day in court, and you are the jury—hearing his side for the first time.
This film is momentous and historic. With your help, together we can continue LaVoy's mission of educating the American people, help correct the distorted image of the Finicum family's husband and father, cultivate new alternative media, and promote positive change in the destiny of our communities.
We hope you will join us in this endeavor.
On Tuesday, January 26, 2016, author LaVoy Finicum was killed by federal and/or state "authorities" after a three week occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Reserve in Burn, OR.
