On Sunday, December 11, 2011, proud members of the Arizona Unit of the National Socialist Movement gathered primarily to conduct briefings and gather intelligence for our upcoming border operation scheduled towards the end of January. We also conducted a meeting and celebrated the Yule with food, fun and a very large bonfire in my backyard. We value these times we have together to further educate ourselves, promote positive agendas and enjoy some well deserved leisure time with our comrades.
My first briefing covered the equipment needed for our border operation. Even a basic list of needed equipment was quite lengthy. Items including, tent sleeping bag, water, extra food, firearms, ammunition, first aid kit, extra clothing, assorted protective gear, flashlights, batteries, two-way radios, pencil and paper were considered essential.
After going through the list, we deployed to the desert area south of Interstate 8 in the Sonoran Desert National Monument. It couldn't be a better day to be outdoors. It was sunny and in the upper 60's.
Having arrived at our remote destination, I advised all personnel on rules of conduct out in the field. Not long after arriving, a red car approached us. Almost instinctively, some of the less experienced patrol volunteers made observations and comments regarding whether or not the approaching vehicle was "friend or foe". One always must be alert in this potentially dangerous area.
Fortunately, the vehicle was occupied by friendly people out for a drive. It always pleases me to see people using our public lands for their intended purpose of recreation, not drug/human smuggling. The driver of this vehicle was also thoughtful enough to be armed.
Having completed our field assessments and instruction, we left the area and made a short stop at the Farmers Convenience Store, a local hot spot of unlawful activities including drugs, liquor violations, public urination, indecent exposure, drunk driving and a myriad of other criminal offenses.
NSM Media was on hand to shoot some video of the desert activity and the interesting observations we made at the Farmers Convenience Store.
This brief tour was a very educational experience. A Mexican male wearing a cowboy hat, fancy western style shirt and a big shiny "Sinaloa" belt buckle approached me. Sinaloa is a state in Mexico and also the name of a violent drug cartel. It turned out that he was looking to buy firearms. It wouldn't surprise me if any firearms he manages to come up with will find their way to cartel members for use in drug smuggling activities.
Having seen more than enough for the day, we returned to "Rancho Muerte" a.k.a. "Aryan Acres for a meeting and fiery Yule celebration. The menu included Polish sausage, beer brats, baked beans and sauerkraut.
I ignited the fire and soon there were flames shooting 30 feet into the air. We noticed that the Mexicans next door had their eyes glued to the fire. For once, I was able to have a BBQ and fire without law enforcement intervention. Once everyone had their fill and the fire died down my guests made their way home.

Riding in the Desert: Child Sexual Exploitation, Drug Running, Human Smuggling and Violence
Nearby is the infamous Vekol Valley, the largest hotbed of drug and human smuggling in the United States and where a Pinal County Deputy was shot in April 2010. Vekol is surrounded by nasty mountain ranges on both sides. There is wide-open desert starting from mile marker 160 on I-8 and stretching all the way to Mexico. Because of the terrain, Vekol acts as a funnel. As we drove into the area, I could feel that it just wasn’t a safe place to be.
Cartels also take advantage of the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation on the west side of Vekol Valley. They use it as an entry point, marry into Indian families so they can live on the reservation and, if a village is small enough, cartel members will simply walk in and take property by lethal force. http://www.southwestbordersheriffs.com/2011/12/riding-in-desert-child-sexual.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SouthwestBorderSheriffsNews+%28Southwest+Border+Sheriff%27s+News%29
“I'm a 9th generation American and patriot (1737). My forefathers served in the Pennsylvania Militia. On June 27, 1781, they were called to perform a tour of duty. I'm still protecting freedom and securing the border, 274 years later.” --Harry L Hughes III
