Members Of New Black Panther Party Arrested On Weapons Charges

Ola­ju­won Ali, Chair­man of the New Black Pan­ther Party’s St. Louis Chapter

Two mem­bers of the New Black Pan­ther Party (NBPP), the largest orga­nized anti-Semitic and racist Black mil­i­tant group in Amer­ica, were arrested in Mis­souri on Fri­day and charged with fed­eral firearms offenses.

Ola­ju­won Ali, Chair­man of the NBPP St. Louis Chap­ter, and Bran­don Bald­win, were indicted on fed­eral weapons vio­la­tions for allegedly mak­ing straw pur­chases of two .45 cal­iber hand­guns at a sport­ing goods store in Hazel­wood, Mis­souri. Author­i­ties say that the two men claimed the guns were for Bald­win but that the weapons were actu­ally intended for some­one else.

After exe­cut­ing search war­rants, pros­e­cu­tors are report­edly con­sid­er­ing addi­tional charges against the two for attempt­ing to pur­chase pipe bombs with intent to cause dam­age to build­ings and land­marks in the St. Louis area.

A state­ment posted by Ali on his appar­ent Face­book page sug­gests that he may have antic­i­pated his arrest on Fri­day. On Novem­ber 19, Ali posted, “Fam­ily and Friends, every­day I got Cau­casians fol­low­ing me in SUV trucks. Please be advised that if you show any signs of non­com­pli­ance with this Devil they will try to assas­si­nate you. Lord smite my ene­mies and any­one who intends to bring me harm. Ashe! In the spirit of Ogun! Pro­tect me. Ashe!”

In another post, Ali described St. Louis as a “Slave Cap­i­tal in a Slave State!” and the iconic Arch as “the Shackle of Oppres­sion” and a “Sym­bol of Our destruc­tion and demise.”

Ali is also an actor and rap­per; he posted images of him­self in a new music video called “Right To Resist” on the day of his arrest. Ali appar­ently con­verted to Islam in col­lege, accord­ing to a YouTube video he posted in Octo­ber 2012, although it is unclear if he still con­sid­ers him­self a Mus­lim. In August, Ali and other mem­bers of the NBPP were present in Fer­gu­son dur­ing the protests fol­lowed the shoot­ing of Michael Brown. It is unclear when Ali, who has a back tat­too of a black pan­ther attack­ing a bald eagle, joined the NBPP.

In addi­tion to his con­nec­tion to the NBPP, Ali is also involved with another extrem­ist move­ment, the “Moor­ish” move­ment, an off­shoot of the anti-government sov­er­eign cit­i­zen move­ment, which he joined in early 2013.  This involve­ment resulted in his arrest by St. Louis police in June 2013, when Ali, accord­ing to his own account of the inci­dent, was charged with tres­pass­ing, dis­turb­ing the peace and resist­ing arrest after attempt­ing to use a Moor­ish iden­ti­fi­ca­tion card to make a “tax free” pur­chase at a con­ve­nience store.

Ali, who was tased dur­ing the encounter, described him­self as a “vic­tim of police bru­tal­ity” and referred to police as “out­laws” and “mer­ce­nar­ies for hire.”  Ali claims to have reached out for help to other “abo­rig­i­nal indige­nous” peo­ple (i.e., other Moor­ish sov­er­eign cit­i­zens), but to have received only advice and good wishes.

Bran­don Muham­mad has a less exten­sive online foot­print. On his appar­ent Face­book page, he made cryp­tic com­ments on Novem­ber 17 such as “For every action there is a reaction…brother I can elab­o­rate on that trust me.” Many of his “likes” con­sist of var­i­ous pages related to Islam, the Nation of Islam, the New Black Pan­ther Party, the Black Rid­ers Lib­er­a­tion Party, the African-American Defense League, and other Black nation­al­ist indi­vid­u­als, causes, and groups.

The NBPP issued a state­ment on its blog on Fri­day describ­ing the alle­ga­tions against Ali and Bald­win as “a com­plete BOLF FACED LIE and FRAME UP attempt of the local St. Louis orga­ni­za­tion and mem­ber­ship, in an effort to stop the orga­niz­ing capa­bil­ity of the local party.”

The NBPP often attracts atten­tion for its threats against police, which the NBPP views as cul­pa­ble for Black suf­fer­ing in the U.S. In August, ADL expressed con­cern over the group’s efforts to por­tray itself as help­ing to keep the peace between pro­test­ers and law enforce­ment in the after­math of the shoot­ing of Michael Brown in Fer­gu­son, Mis­souri. The group made sev­eral threats against local law enforce­ment in response to the Michael Brown shoot­ing in Fer­gu­son, Mis­souri.

Houston Terror Suspect Allegedly Behind Conspiratorial Facebook Page

robert-talbot-anti-muslim

Robert Tal­bot Jr.

Last week, the FBI arrested Robert Tal­bot Jr. on charges of plan­ning a vio­lent attack on a Houston-area mosque. A look into Talbot’s his­tory reveals that he not only fos­ters a deep-seated hatred of Mus­lims and Islam, but also sub­scribes to con­spir­acy the­o­ries of an alleged Mus­lim Broth­er­hood takeover of the U.S. and the need to com­bat the so-called “New World Order.” Talbot’s plan to attack the mosque and Mus­lim insti­tu­tions is the lat­est in a recent string of vio­lence directed toward the Muslim-American community.

Accord­ing to the FBI, Talbot’s plan was to recruit “like-minded” accom­plices to “blow up gov­ern­ment build­ings, rob banks, and kill law enforce­ment offi­cers.” In addi­tion, Tal­bot tar­geted Islamic cen­ters and mosques. Tal­bot allegedly planned to enter a mosque dur­ing Fri­day prayers and shoot wor­ship­pers dur­ing ser­vices. FBI offi­cials have also stated that it was part of Talbot’s plan to rob an armored car and attack a mosque with a machine gun. To jus­tify these acts of vio­lence, Tal­bot said that he would be “doing the Will of God.”

Law enforce­ment offi­cials state that Tal­bot is behind the con­spir­a­to­r­ial anti-Muslim and anti-government Face­book page, Amer­i­can Insur­gent Move­ment (AIM).  In posts attrib­uted to him, Tal­bot expressed racist and anti-Muslim con­spir­a­to­r­ial sen­ti­ments that the U.S. has been infil­trated by the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and that he intended to send “that White House worth­less piece of dirt and his Mus­lim Broth­er­hood a mes­sage they will never forget.”

In a Novem­ber 23, 2013 post, Tal­bot claimed that he is “not a racist per­son, but I’m only racist to those cul­tures whom show it, and this is why I don’t like Chinks, Mus­lims and a few other…” Tal­bot has also made threats against Obama admin­is­tra­tion advi­sor Valerie Jar­rett, who was born in Iran and who Tal­bot alleged is “a Muslim.”

The ‘About’ sec­tion of AIM’s Face­book page states that it is a group intended for indi­vid­u­als seek­ing to “restore Amer­ica Pre-Constitutionally and look for­ward to stop­ping the Regime with action by blood­shed.” Addi­tion­ally, many of Talbot’s post­ings allude to the need to fight “New World Order,” a con­spir­acy the­ory typ­i­cally revolv­ing around claims that the U.S. gov­ern­ment is try­ing to enslave, coerce, intim­i­date, scare, poi­son, or kill U.S. cit­i­zens on a mass scale.

In a March 1, 2014 post on the Face­book page, Tal­bot claimed that the NWO seeks “to turn Amer­i­can [sic] into their Marx­ist Mus­lim dream,” and that the “NWO can be stop [sic] and will be stopped.” In an ear­lier post from Feb­ru­ary 7, Tal­bot wrote that AIM is “Look­ing ONLY for ex-military or self-trained men who trained in guer­rilla war­fare and under­stand war/battle to the fullest.”

Talbot’s alleged plot is the lat­est in a series of recent inci­dents tar­get­ing Mus­lims and Mus­lim insti­tu­tions:

  • March 2014: The Prayer Cen­ter of Orland Park, located in a Chicago sub­urb, was fired at dur­ing early morn­ing prayer ser­vices by an unknown attacker. A bul­let allegedly struck the gold metal dome of the mosque.
  • March 2014: Sev­eral shots were fired at the Islamic Cen­ter of Hat­ties­burg, Mis­sis­sippi in the mid­dle of the night. Law enforce­ment stated that it is con­sid­er­ing the inci­dent as a “mali­cious mis­chief case.”
  • March 2014: An Iraqi immi­grant was gunned down in a shop­ping cen­ter park­ing lot in Sacra­mento, Cal­i­for­nia by an assailant who has expressed hatred for peo­ple of Mid­dle East­ern descent. Law enforce­ment is treat­ing the inci­dent as a hate crime.

Plot To Kidnap, Kill Police Officers Uncovered in Las Vegas

Offi­cers from the Las Vegas Metro Police Depart­ment have arrested David Allan Brutsche, 42, and Devon Camp­bell New­man, 67, for allegedly plot­ting to kid­nap and kill police offi­cers in Las Vegas.david-allan-brutsche-sovereign-citizen

Accord­ing to police, the two sus­pects were adher­ents of the sov­er­eign cit­i­zen move­ment who sought to abduct a police offi­cer while the offi­cer made a traf­fic stop, then later kill him or her.    The two allegedly video­taped a police traf­fic stop in prepa­ra­tion and mod­i­fied a bed­room in a vacant home to cre­ate a makeshift cell in which a kid­napped offi­cer could be detained.  After “try­ing” the offi­cer in a court of their own mak­ing, they allegedly planned to kill the offi­cer and dis­pose of the body.  Both Brutche and New­man report­edly made state­ments in which they said they would be will­ing to shoot law enforce­ment officers.

How­ever, Brutsche and New­man were unaware that some of the peo­ple whom they thought were accom­plices were actu­ally police offi­cers con­duct­ing an under­cover inves­ti­ga­tion.  Police have charged them with con­spir­acy to com­mit mur­der, con­spir­acy to com­mit kid­nap­ping, and attempted first-degree kid­nap­ping with use of a deadly weapon. The sov­er­eign cit­i­zen move­ment is extremely anti-government in nature and adher­ents of the move­ment have been involved in a num­ber of police killings and plots against police and gov­ern­ment offi­cials in recent years.

After her arrest, New­man, who for sev­eral years has been the local pub­lic rela­tions direc­tor for the Church of Sci­en­tol­ogy in Las Vegas, gave jail­house inter­views with local tele­vi­sion reporters in which she denied involve­ment in any plot to kid­nap or kill offi­cers, say­ing she only intended to video them.  The Sci­en­tol­ogy move­ment as a whole does not have any sig­nif­i­cant asso­ci­a­tion with the sov­er­eign cit­i­zen movement.

New­man told reporters that she met Brutsche while he was giv­ing out water bot­tles on the Las Vegas strip in exchange for dona­tions.  Police have, in fact, arrested Brutsche more than once for obstruc­tive use of a pub­lic side­walk and oper­at­ing with­out a busi­ness license.  On a more seri­ous note, Brutsche is a reg­is­tered sex offender with felony con­vic­tions in Cal­i­for­nia for inde­cent expo­sure and las­civ­i­ous acts with a three-year-old child.

In Octo­ber 2012, Brutsche filed a sov­er­eign cit­i­zen “Affi­davit of Sta­tus” with the Clark County Recorder’s Office in which he declared him­self as “one of the peo­ple of these united [sic] States of Amer­ica” and a “liv­ing, breath­ing sen­tient human being on the land” exempt from “any and all iden­ti­fi­ca­tions, treat­ments, and require­ments as any ARTIFICIAL PERSON pur­suant to any process, law, code, reg­u­la­tion, ordi­nance, statute or any color thereof.”  In the doc­u­ment Brutsche also declared that “pub­lic ser­vants” who vio­late their oaths of office “com­mit a Treason.”

Two months later, Brutsche filed a sec­ond doc­u­ment that seemed to antic­i­pate future encoun­ters with law enforce­ment.  The doc­u­ment, titled “Sched­ule of Fees for David Allen Brutsche,” listed fees Brutsche would appar­ently attempt to charge police for any inter­ac­tion with him.  For exam­ple, the fee for “speak­ing to a cop” was “20 min­utes for free” then $200 per hour.  If some­one impounded his vehi­cle, the fee was “$2000 or 1 troy ounce of gold plus cost of recov­ery and any damages.”
