Ammon Bundy arrested in connection with child welfare case.

Update: Baby Cyrus is back home today!!!!

Ammon Bundy, who is running for governor in Idaho was arrested this morning on trespassing charges after refusing to leave Saint Luke’s Medical Center in Meridian.

Bundy posted on twitter, “last night my very good friend Diego’s grandson was medically kidnapped because a medical practitioner called (child protective services) for a missed doctor appointment. If this happened to them, it could happen to you”. He wanted others to go to the hospital with him to support a family with a 10-month-old baby that hospital staff claims is suffering from “severe malnourishment”. The Idaho Statesman reports that three other people were also arrested. One “on suspicion of trespassing at the hospital,” and two people were arrested “on suspicion of resisting or obstructing police”.

Bundy who is well-known for standing against government authorities on his family’s land in Nevada in 2014, and for participating in standoffs with law enforcement at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon in 2016 is also scheduled to stand trial on three charges that stem from trespassing at the Idaho State Capitol in April 2021.

“Update: March 13, 2022 6:30 PM- Many have asked if they can make a monetary donation to the family for court fees, legal expenses, and more. Please visit this link and donate. You will also find a very detailed explanation of events and any current updates as well

Update: March 13, 2022 12:25 PM- Cyrus is not taking food from a bottle well, instead of allowing Marissa Anderson to go in to nurse Cyrus on demand (which he has never once thrown up from doing), the hospital is denying her of that option and instead putting a feeding tube in. Lawyers from the family were kicked out of the hospital. This continues to be a gross overreach situation and prayers and support are needed. If you are in the area, a press conference from the family will begin at 2 pm in front of St. Lukes downtown Boise and thousands should be in attendance, including YOU! If you are NOT local or within driving distance please call St. Luke’s Boise Hospital and ask why they are not trying to reunify this family by allowing the mother to breast feed her child.

Yesterday was an emotional day.

I have watched Levi Anderson and Marissa Anderson become parents these past couple of years. That sweet little picture frame purchased for their very first ultrasound photo, watching a growing baby bump, enjoying the baby shower where we were able to literally shower little Cyrus with love before he entered the world, the day he entered this world. What a day it was! Something happened in the Spirit realm that day when God breathed his first breathe into Cyrus.

I have watched the love and excitement of being a parent for the first time. That look in their eyes that says “I will do anything for my child and I will never let anything hurt him.”

And here I sit……..

now watching those same parents fighting for their son in ways a parent would never imagine to be fighting for their child.

They are fighting to get back their son from a corrupt system who decided they weren’t good parents.

A system who wanted to arrest Miranda (Marissa’s sister) for “felony endangerment to a child” and then exercised her right to remain silent and continued to be arrested because she wouldn’t say who Marissa was.

A system that promised Marissa they wouldn’t separate her from her son.

A system where the detective says “just give us your son and you can go on your merry way”.

A system who laughed and scattered the minute Diego cried out in prayer as he watched his two daughters get arrested, his son in law be detained, and his grandson be stripped away from his mother.

A system that “lost” Marissa’s diaper bag with her ID, cash, bank cards, and more.

A system that decided canceling a doctors appointment for being under the weather was worthy of a child being taken from his family. Mind you, this SAME system was freaking out only months ago if you didn’t ware a mask and you were asymptomatic.

I can go on and on about this gross overreach, but at the end of the day, this world is in LOVE with this system. This world has spent their entire life bowing down to this system. All of it.




We have made idols of this system.

But what happens when this system begins to take advantage of you because it knows you idolize it so much?

“Hey, I’m just taking orders here.”

“We can’t argue with the science.”

“It really seems like this system sure knows more than I about parenting.”

“It’s coming from a “trusted” media source so it must be true”

This world has backed itself into a corner and now this system is going to eat us alive because we were all focused on making false idols.

I hear your excuses while you read this:

We don’t know the full story.

The police were just doing what they were told.

It might have been in the best interest of the child.

This system would never hurt us, they are only trying to protect us.

And while you may be wallowing in your excuses, you continue to back yourself in a corner that you will never be able to get out of. In short, your idols are showing again, and this situation could happen to any one of us. I’m curious if you would be ok with people making excuses for this system WHEN it does come for you. Because we are far past the IF stage. We have entered the WHEN stage. #SaveBabyCyrus”.
