Uncontrolled illegal immigration to continue. . . Americans will pay with blood











As we have learned in the past few weeks, the liars in Washington D.C. have no intention of protecting U.S. citizens in southwest border states from dangerous Mexicans. I don’t see troops, money or a fence anytime in the near future. We are on our own. This being the case, there will be much darkness before we see light at the end of the tunnel.

The lack of federal response to the illegal immigration problem is an unmistakable two word message from Washington D.C. The first word begins with "F" and the second word begins with "Y". Get it?

Arizona governor announces Obama has answered Arizona's plea for illegal alien help with a Lawsuit

“This is no way to treat the people of Arizona,” said Governor Brewer. “To learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorian interview with the Secretary of State is just outrageous. If our own government intends to sue our state to prevent illegal immigration enforcement, the least it can do is inform us before it informs the citizens of another nation.”

I’m convinced that the government is too broken to fix. Government of, by and for the people doesn’t exist in the United States. Democracy is an illusion.

Immigration Issues Haunting Arizona Democrats

President Obama’s shirt tails got a lot shorter in Arizona. Democrats in Arizona are urging Obama not to sue their state for its new immigration law The Hill quotes Arizona Democrat Harry Mitchell’s blunt letter to the President as follows.

“I believe your administration’s time, efforts and resources would be much better spent securing the border and fixing our broken immigration system,” the two-term congressman wrote in the letter. “Arizonans are tired of the grandstanding, and tired of waiting for help from Washington. … [A] lawsuit won’t solve the problem. It won’t secure the border, and it won’t fix our broken immigration system.”

This country is run by greedy and evil transnational corporations. We are all serfs working on the global plantation. We are expected to be happy with the scraps from the “boss man’s” table. The “boss men” are globalists intent on world economic and military dominance.(a global dictatorship) Whether you believe this or not, the elements are all there in plain sight.

US Warns It Cannot Guard Arizona Section of Border

About 3,500 acres of southern Arizona on the Mexican border have been closed off to U.S. citizens because it cannot be defended, according to Fox News.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service told Fox News that the reason is due to the increased violence in the area.

“It’s literally out of control,” Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told Fox News. “We stood with Senator McCain and literally demanded support for 3,000 soldiers to be deployed to Arizona to get this under control and finally secure our border with Mexico. “

Its not that the government cannot secure the Mexican border, It's that the government WILL NOT!

Our illegal immigration patrol last weekend proved that my little stretch of desert is as dangerous as we were lead to believe. People are dying out there. It wouldn’t surprise me if the U.S. and Mexico have worked out some sort of back room deal to keep this drug corridor open and “off limits”(unofficially) to the public. After all, isn’t it about corruption, power and money?

I think the law enforcement community should be somewhat embarrassed for being fearful of the Vekol Valley area. Yes, there were three shootings and two deaths recently, but this is not the norm. I’ve been traveling out there for nearly two decades and this was the first year anything went this sour.

The Democrats' objective is to continue flooding the U.S. with illegal aliens and to give them one amnesty after another. They have clearly demonstrated that their lust for votes is more important than the will of the people.

If the Democrats bring in enough poor, needy Mexicans and give them the right to vote, the Democrats will get their permanent majority. It's as simple as that. This is all about future votes and consolidating power.

This tragedy is the result of the Jewish Marxist and their puppets that control the government.

Thanks to illegal aliens and drug trafficking, law abiding citizens are forced off public lands.
















I am not a hardcore astronomy buff, but having a strong science background, I still enjoy observing the heavens from time to time. I am extremely disappointed that the lack of law enforcement and blatant disregard for U.S. immigration policies have cause a group of astronomy hobbyists to abandon a viewing site along Vekol Road. They have been using this dark and remote location for several years.

The Sonoran Desert National Monument should be able to welcome visitors day and night without fear of being attacked, robbed or killed by lawless Mexicans. We can send two divisions of soldiers to beef up Afghanistan, but we cannot make 150 square miles of the Arizona desert safe for citizens?

Can anyone else see something wrong with this picture? Who is more important? Us or them?

East Valley Astronomy Club(EVAC) Deep Sky Star Party

The "deep sky" star party is held on the Saturday closest to new moon. For many years, EVAC has supported the use of a location known as Vekol Rd. This location was East of Gila Bend, and South of I-8. Due to recent events in the Arizona news, and out of caution for our members safety, EVAC is not recommending the use of this location at the present time. A permanent replacement location for the EVAC Deep Sky Star Party has not yet been selected.
http://www.eastvalleyastronomy.org/sp.html

I happen to have an inexpensive telescope sitting in my closet. I acquired it some years ago from the Marlboro Adventure Team promotion and might have used it two or three times before putting it back in the box. I am going to conduct a little experiment out in my Vekol Valley patrol area which is only a few minutes south of the(former) star party location.

I want to spend a couple of hours late one afternoon using my telescope to spot illegal aliens or other suspicious activity on the mountainsides. If this works out, perhaps we can develop a new hobby and further interest in public use of the Sonoran Desert National Monument south of Interstate 8.

A few hours later. . .

As you can see by my photos, I couldn’t wait. I quit typing and packed up my telescope, dog and AK-47 and made my way out to the Vekol Valley to see if this idea would float. By the way, it was 109 degrees today. The hottest day of the year, so far. I’m glad I made the trip. The heat didn’t bother me.

In the hour or two before sunset, I had a really good view of the mountains to my east. There would be too many shadows in the morning hours. I was disappointed not to see one of those drug cartel outposts or any of their lookouts staring back at me through their telescopes.

All in all, it was almost too quiet out there this afternoon. Fortunately, the temperature dropped rapidly as the sun went down. By 8:00PM, it was really comfortable. My dog, Bailey, spent her time exploring and chasing lizards.

I hung around until after dark before leaving. If anybody other than the agents that set up the remote cameras is watching the area, they might have to get used to seeing headlights and vehicles. I intend to continue using this area despite the travel warnings.

It was a beautiful evening and I would like more people to be able to enjoy this scenery. Currently, this place is like my private preserve. Every once in a while, I have to share it with drug smugglers, illegal aliens and nut jobs that shoot at sheriff’s deputies.

Another case where U. S. citizens have been forced off public lands. . .

June 2010
Recently there were reports in the news stating that the Buenos Aries National Wildlife Refuge was closed. This information is not correct. In early 2006, a small section of land (about 3% of the refuge) along the border was closed to visitation. However, no new restrictions are in place and the majority of the refuge remains open. Today, we are seeing a decline in violent activity in the southern most area thanks to ongoing cooperation between the US Fish and Wildlife Service and US Customs and Border Protection. The Refuge will reopen the lands along the border at such time that it is determined to be safe for visitors.

Five Federal Lands in Arizona Have Travel Warnings in Place

Imagine the federal government closing a section of the Lincoln Memorial because it was under the control of Mexican drug lords and bands of illegal immigrants.

"That is a ludicrous message," he said. "That policy in unacceptable. That strikes of running a policy of appeasement to drug cartels instead of fighting back. Someone has to say that not one inch of American property will be given to the bad guys and not one death is acceptable."
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/06/18/federal-lands-arizona-travel-warnings-place/

I don’t care if it’s 3500 acres or one acre of land. As long as this land is within the borders of the United States of America, it should be open and made safe for public use. Anything less is completely unacceptable. Let’s take back our country. We have the manpower and the technology. It’s the politicians that don’t have the motivation.

Americans and Mexicans used as pawns. . .How many more will die?











Here you have it. Our so-called “Commander in Chief” has made a purely political decision that will result in the deaths of many people on both sides of the Mexican border. Regardless of what side of the immigration debate you sit on, this should be an intolerable and completely unacceptable situation.

Our government is using innocent citizens, both American and Mexican, as political pawns in a game that has deadly consequences.

Obama tells Kyl in private Oval Office meeting: I won’t secure border b/c then Republicans will have no reason to support “comprehensive immigration reform.”

On June 18, 2010, Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl told the audience at a North Tempe Tea Party town hall meeting that during a private, one-on-one meeting with President Obama in the Oval Office, the President told him, regarding securing the southern border with Mexico, “The problem is, . . . if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’”
http://www.redstate.com/coldwarrior/2010/06/20/obama-tells-kyl-in-private-oval-office-meeting-i-wont-secure-border-bc-then-republicans-will-have-no-reason-to-support-comprehensive-immigration-reform/

Shortly afterwards, the Obama administration denied making this comment. Either way, not enough is being done to minimize human suffering.

The way I see it, Obama is playing “Russian Roulette” with those he is sworn to protect and serve. Obama is going to sit in the Oval Office with his thumb up hiss ass while the human-trafficking “narco-terrorists” pour across the Arizona border, bringing poison, death and destruction to our schools and neighborhoods.

On the Mexican side of the border, the wholesale killing will continue as the drug cartels fight over control of the cash cow. As we know, these killings have encouraged many Mexican citizens to flee to America via the almost as deadly Arizona desert. Imagine living somewhere where it’s worth risking an agonizing trip through the 110 degree hell of southern Arizona to escape.

J.T. Ready's Neo-Nazi Patrol for Migrants in the Vekol Valley, and Its Discovery of a Dead Body

It's not every day that a well-known neo-Nazi offers to take you to a place called "the slaughterhouse."

But that's what Mesa neo-Nazi J.T. Ready did this Saturday, leading a group of neo-Nazis, militia-types and some seriously naive individuals to "secure" an abandoned building by that name on Vekol Road, off Interstate 8.
http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/bastard/2010/06/jt_readys_neo-nazi_patrol_in_v.php#comments

Fortunately, we will not sit by and wait for the government to act. Us citizens will be forced onto the front lines to protect OUR country from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Neo-Nazi NSM Scrapbook: One Dead Body, One Live Migrant

The desiccated body looks to be practically in skeleton form, though some of the clothing has survived and there is a water jug tied to a stick next to the remains. I'm surprised the Nazis didn't strap the bones to the hood of one of their cars for a photo op. (That's assuming they didn't, of course.)
http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/bastard/2010/06/neo-nazi_nsm_scrapbook_one_dea.php#more

Steve Lemons does have a sense of humor. Doesn’t he? As it should happen, the body and area around the body was treated as a crime scene. Although, we may not care much for illegal aliens, we do have some respect for the dead.

We have established a “base camp” in the Vekol Valley and we will keep it manned as much as possible. We will be greatly expanding our “sphere of influence” in the coming weeks. If anyone is interested in helping out, feel free to drop me a line and I will provide you with additional information and instructions.

I am planning a smaller and less public patrol later this week. I think it’s important that the public be made aware of the issues out in western Pinal County, hence the media coverage last weekend. On the other hand, immigration patrols work better if they’re not publicized. More often than not, I don’t have a destination when I embark on a patrol. I simply get up and go somewhere.

After-Action Report From The Front Lines: 1 Dead, and 3 Apprehended.
















Once again, the National Socialist Movement set the bar for true patriotic activism. As they celebrate the accomplishment of patrolling the border for well over a year, the members of NSM Arizona and NSM California Units decided to step up their efforts to defend our nation from the invasion from Mexico. The nation has become concerned about state parks and wildlife refuges in Arizona reported by the media as being lost to the Mexican drug cartels. Residents of Arizona have become infuriated along with a sense of despair as the federal government refuses to properly fund local officials or take any appropriate action to safeguard our land or its people.

Following three days of recon missions, the heavily armed NSM leaped into action reclaiming many miles of southern Arizona known for both its human and drug trafficking. They were assisted by armed locals of different ethnicities who were pleased to help an organization willing to fight the cartels and reclaim the land. After clearing an area known as a safe haven for illegal aliens at around 4pm on July 19th, 2010 the NSM along with unaffiliated local residents raised American flags and prepared for the third phase of operations.

Video part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21WUb9uVGKw

Just before midnight, a patrol was sent further south to collect Intel and cut off known routes used by coyotes and the cartels. While the patrol was out, an alliance of local patriots and NSM members worked security around the base camp. The first patrol returned and was succeeded by a substantial second patrol in the early morning hours at a time when the drug cartels and coyotes prefer to travel. A secondary camp was established and the allied force then dominated miles of southern Arizona. heavily armed foot patrols guarded both the camps and went on quiet recon missions into the desert hundreds of yards from the main camps. Many hours later the secondary camp retired from their stronghold and returned to the main base of operations just as day light hit the desert.

A hour after the assemblage at base camp, NSM members on security, spotted one of Mexico’s biggest export; a Mexican. Javier was almost delirious from heat exhaustion and dehydration and his feet bled through his socks from nine days of hiking through the desert. Immediately the base camp went into high alert. Invaders into our nation never singly come and a single person found near a camp usually serves as a distraction for the coyotes or the cartels. As Javier searching for humanitarian aid voluntarily gave up his travel into America, our base security was vigilant and a heavily armed search team went on patrol.

While waiting for the Border Patrol to pick up Javier, the search team discovered a body lying dead in the nearby wash. Although, partially hidden by brush, there was no hiding the stench of decaying flesh. Judging by what the buzzards didn’t eat, and by the clothing, the body appeared to be a middle aged man. The only item near the body was a pole his hand clutched with a water bottle tied at the end. The position of the body indicated to us that he either fainted and collapsed or was the victim of foul play. Local authorities were notified and an investigation by the authorities was launched.

Javier was taken into custody by the Border Patrol and two others that were part of his party were picked up on the main highway.

This highly successful operation also pushed drug runners on a path in the neighboring county the previous night that isn’t usually traveled and they were easily spotted according to one source. A local who goes on patrol to safeguard his neighborhood reported that the drug runners were forced to use the paths usually reserved for the coyotes.

As we reclaim more of southern Arizona, the cartels will be forced to fight over the paths outside of our patrols. A local source reported that with more local citizens on patrol every day and the NSM placing more boots in the region, the cartels are fighting and killing each other. The last gun battle between cartels in the area was only a week prior to our major operation. After last Saturday, the cartels have been left with fewer ports of entry. We continue to work with locals (some of the locals are NSM members) and we receive good Intel on both the coyotes and the cartels activities. We will coordinate our efforts accordingly.

I would like to thank J.T. Ready, Harry Hughes, and NSM Arizona for coordinating this recent effort, for their recon missions prior to the big push into the desert, and for all their work at the border. I would also like to thank NSM California member "Butch" and NSM supporter Steve for the supplies and for helping transport NSM California’s border equipment. And although this operation was made possible, and successful, by a variety of people we must thank all the locals who decided to help us in the field and/or in supporter roles. We can not stress how grateful we are for the boots at the border and the Intel provided by these locals of different ethnicities.

These people were scrutinized by the media at Saturdays press conference and some were even attacked for supporting an effort led by the NSM. However, these individuals were not persuaded to leave or abandon the mission. There was no talk of political affiliation or beliefs. We openly spoke on who we are to not mislead any individual however the goal was to reclaim American land, and not push our beliefs. There was an Apache Indian and a Hispanic along with others supporting the mission and willing to fight and die along side of us to keep drugs off our streets, keep Mexicans from further invading our land, and reclaim American land and the border. The Hispanic man was very vocal about being an American first, last, and only.

The Apache was a reward recipient and acknowledged state wide for his work against drug abuse in his community and has personally led many addicts to recovery. His statement before embarking on the mission was simple yet powerful, "I’ve been fighting drug abuse for many years. Now it’s time for me to fight the problem at its’ source. The drugs stop here".

The NSM patrols at the border in Arizona and California continue and future large scale missions are being organized in both states. The National Socialist Movement continues with their campaign to reclaim the Southwest!

Harry’s Unwritten Rule #001: Travel and Firearms







Every once in a while, I will be posting some of my unwritten rules as part of my blog. I thought it was about time I started writing some of these down. As you can imagine, these rules come with real life true stories. I hope you enjoy them. They may seem amusing now, but they were not at all fun while I was taking the “class”.

Rule #001: Never, under any circumstances, go to a remote unpopulated area with an armed person you don’t know very well. Only venture out into the wilderness with the most trustworthy of people. Your life may very well depend on it.

My reasoning for creating this rule:

In 1994, I embarked on a camping trip with a co-worker. I had several weapons including handguns and assault rifles onboard my truck . My co-worker friend brought a .357 magnum revolver and a Chinese model 56 7.62mm rifle. We decided to go up on the Mogollon Rim near Forest Lakes.

Everything was going just fine until we were driving by the Fort McDowell Casino on SR 87. A careless driver nearly hit my right front fender when he veered into my lane. I avoided a collision and continued with my journey. I wasn’t going to let one idiot spoil my weekend because I really needed this time off.

My co-worker friend got angry and began waving that .357 magnum revolver around. Needless to say, the careless driver and other motorists saw this very un-cool display and became alarmed. The careless driver stayed on our tails all the way to Jake‘s Corner. A DPS unit was on the shoulder at that point and the careless motorist pulled off. He obviously told the officer about the events that transpired by the casino.

A few miles later, just outside Rye, AZ, I observed a roadblock in front of me. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who they were waiting for. My friend desperately wanted me to pull off on some unfamiliar dirt road before the roadblock. I told him, “They have us, now shut up!”

I stopped for the roadblock and acted very politely as the older officer with the mustache and glasses handcuffed my friend after jerking him out of my truck. I should say ex-friend. He wasn’t my friend anymore. Friends don’t get friends stopped at police roadblocks. After all, police roadblocks can be very hazardous to one’s health.

I was not taken into custody. The officer wanted to look in my truck and I told him to go ahead. They spent the next 45 minutes to an hour looking at my guns and running their serial numbers through the NCIC computer. The officers came across my pirate flag and posed for a few Polaroid pictures. My ex-friend sat in the back of the police car sweating his ass off in the heat. He was looking at an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge.

Due to the quantity of firearms, camouflage clothing and the pirate flag packed with my camping gear, one of the officers was convinced that I was on my way to some sort of militia or extremist gathering up in the mountains. I truthfully told him I was not. I was finally permitted to go about my business minus my idiot passenger. He was on his way to the Gila County Jail in Payson.

I knew this guy for a couple of years and saw no problem with going on a camping trip with him. Needless to say I was dead wrong.

This turned out to be one of the most valuable firearms related lessons I ever learned. Hopefully, some of you will remember this story before getting into a car and going anywhere with an armed person you met at work , online or at the bar.

“After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.” --William S. Burroughs

Vekol Valley Illegal Immigration Patrol. . . Operation: “Line in the Sand”
















Our illegal alien patrol has been running for over 24 hours. We went straight through the night and into Sunday. We met and talked to quite a few people. Several media outlets arrived to report on our activities.

After getting the media squared away, a base camp and perimeter was established at the abandoned slaughter house off route 8007 & 8045. Numerous foot and vehicle patrols took place throughout the night. Although hot during the day, the night was pleasantly cool and comfortable.

Due to media coverage and the sudden rise in human activity in the area, I don’t think any illegal aliens or drugs will pass through this area until after we leave. Smugglers will either take the night off or pick another route.

Although we were “armed for bear”, I would like to think the primary intention of this show of force was to raise public awareness when it comes to the drug trade and human smuggling. We also need to address the exploitation and destruction of our public lands.

I was pleased to see that Stephen Lemons and Dennis Gilman made the trip out to the press conference at the picnic area along Interstate 8 near mile marker 151. I caught up with them on Vekol Road shortly after dark. They were taking pictures of my favorite “travel caution” sign.

Danger: Drug And Human Smuggling Area(video)

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- The federal government is putting up warning signs for the desert recreation area south of Interstate 8 between Casa Grande and Gila Bend.

The signs say, "Danger - Public Warning, Travel Not Recommended."

The signs read that the area is an active drug and human smuggling area and visitors should avoid approaching abandoned cars, backpacks and any camping sights. The signs include the 911 number for any suspicious activity.
http://www.kpho.com/news/23900104/detail.html

How long should we ignore the damage to America, in the form of murders, kidnappings, car jackings, gangs and identity theft. Arizona tax payers spend $2.7 billion annually just to educate, medicate and incarcerate illegal aliens. And what about the 17 to 30 million Americans out of work?

Double murder near Maricopa likely connected to drug smuggling

The area where the murders occurred is part of a known drug and human smuggling corridor that stretches from the Mexican border all the way to the Phoenix Metro Area. Hidden cameras in various parts of the desert have caught images of paramilitary-sized squads of men moving throughout the area, carrying automatic weapons. “We do not own this corridor in Western Pinal County,” the Sheriff said, “Drug cartels control this!” Pinal County has only 214 sworn deputies to patrol 5400 square-miles.
http://maricopa360.com/?p=8784#more-8784

We can always expect lots of spin and hype from the journalists on the left when the hottest issue is illegal immigration. Arizona is a very large state. Out here, many people carry firearms and wear camouflage.

The Rio Rico Shootings, J.T. Ready, and Neo-Nazis in the Desert

Estrada said that at this time he has no leads in the case. I mentioned the fact that armed neo-Nazis were patrolling Pinal County's Vekol Valley, and asked him if that was at all worrisome. He spoke generally of the various volunteer groups that seek to patrol the desert themselves.

"That is a concern," answered Estrada. "These people are obviously not trained in this sort of work -- law enforcement. They would be very vulnerable to some of these groups and individuals that really take this very seriously and can be very violent when they have to be. These people could be caught in the crossfire."
http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/bastard/2010/06/rio_rico_shootings_and_neo-naz.php#more

Trying to connect us with a shooting that occurred hours away from home because of a lame blog comment is a bit of a stretch. I really don’t mind because sensationalism keeps the momentum of the border issue going full steam ahead.

Heavily-armed citizen militia group plans to patrol smuggling corridor

PINAL COUNTY, AZ (KOLD) - A group of citizens plans to arm themselves with heavy weaponry and patrol the Vekol Valley area of Pinal County, looking for drug smugglers entering the country. They plan to conduct their patrol operation from 3:00pm Saturday to 3:00pm Sunday.

"We're going to block off the narcoterrorists that come up through this area," said Mesa resident Jason "J.T." Ready, who is organizing the gathering.

Ready says volunteers are coming from all over Arizona, and even out of state, to support the effort.
http://www.kold.com/Global/story.asp?S=12675989

Americans have been conditioned(brainwashed) by the mass media to believe that the only people who can effectively stand up against criminals are the military and law enforcement.

Every time some citizens fights off a burglar or home-invader the police, via the media say, "Well, it turned out good in this case, but people should just give them their money. It's not smart to fight back against criminals."

You do not necessarily need military training to become proficient at weapons and small squad tactics. You don't need to be military or law enforcement to stand up for yourself and defend what is yours. There are many documented instances throughout history where ordinary citizens took up arms to fight for what they believe in, I.E. the Revolutionary War.

"We are a nation of laws. We must have the courage - the fortitude - to enforce, with compassion but without apology, those laws that protect the integrity of our borders and the rights of our lawful citizens." --Senator Russell Pearce, R-AZ
