Yesterday, I was a guest of Pete Santilli on his very popular talk show. My business partner and fellow patriot sister, Leisa Audette, and I have admired the work of the fearless talk show host for years and I was honored to be Mr. Santilli’s guest.
We’ve been a huge fan of the hero, Pete Santilli ever since he embedded himself as a journalist to document the important standoff between FBI agents and father and son ranchers Dwight and Steve Hammon of Oregon, during a standoff inside the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
The takeover at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, began on January 2, 2016, after a peaceful protest in nearby Burns, Oregon, over the conviction of two local ranchers on arson charges. Dwight Hammond, 73, and his son Steven Hammond, 46, said they lit fires on federal land in 2001 and 2006 to reduce the growth of invasive plants and protect their property from wildfires.
