COMMENT: As investigations unfold into the murders of Tom Clements  (chief of the Colorado corrections department) and Kaufman County (TX) DA Tom McClelland and his wife , a number of interesting and/or strange developments  have surfaced:
- Reports have surfaced that white supremacists may be attempting/contemplating an uprising along the lines of the scenario set forth in The Turner Diaries.
- A Texas prosecutor involved with prosecuting the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas has quit the case. (The Aryan Brotherhood of Texas is autonomous from the Aryan Brotherood as a whole.)
- Kaufman County DA Tom McClelland has deputies maintaining security at his home for some time after his assistant was murdered.
- Reports have surfaced of possible cooperation between the Texas Aryan Brotherhood and Mexican drug cartels, allegedly involving methamphetamine distribution.
- Two members of the 211 Crew (another white supremacist prison gang apparently involved with methamphetamine dealing) are being sought in connection of the murder of Tom Clements (allegedly by Evan Ebel, said to be a member of the 211 Crew.) This is indicative of a possible conspiracy.
- The chief suspect in the Clements murder, Evan Ebel was released from prison by mistake!
- Shortly after his release, his electronic bracelet malfunctioned, shortly before Clements was killed.
These developments bring to mind a number of considerations, suggesting that there may be more to this story than meets the eye:
- Organizations such as the Aryan Brotherhood and 211 Crew have been known to partner with other criminal syndicates. In FTR #297 , the elements of the Aryan Brotherhood scrutinized in the investigation were breeding the Presa Canario dogs for use by Mexican drug cartels, a type of relationship implied in some of the articles mentioned below.
- The International Business Times article below discusses the possibility that the murders of the legal professionals might be the start of an “Aryan Uprising”–along the lines of what is portrayed in The Turner Diaries. In FTR #297 , we noted that there were reports in the late 1990’s that Aryan Brotherhood elements were conspiring to kill corrections officials in Arizona.
- In 1998, the author of The Turner Diaries (William Luther Pierce), directly foreshadowed the 9/11 attacks  in a shortwave radio broadcast.
- As discussed in FTR #443  (among other programs), the climactic episode of The Turner Diaries is a low-level suicide aerial attack on the Pentagon, committed on November 9th. (November 9th is the Nazi Day of Destiny and would be written by a German as “9/11”.)
As discussed in FTR #272 , the Nazi terror group The Order was financed by “German families” living in South America.
- The Turner Diaries was also the template used by Timothy McVeigh and associates in the Oklahoma City bombing. Legal testimony from an ATF informant alleges that Andreas Strassmeier was the mastermind of the attack , with McVeigh as a protege. Strassmeier is the son of Gunther Strassmeier , Helmut Kohl’s chief of staff and the architect of German reunification. Gunther’s father was one of the founding members of the Nazi Party under Hitler.
- Andreas Strassmeier bears a striking resemblance to the composite sketch of John Doe #2 in the Oklahoma City bombing–as can be seen at right.
- Saudi elements have also been known to use neo-Nazi elements , suggesting that the Saudi link to the Clements killing should not be altogether dismissed.
EXCERPT: Members of a white supremacist prison gang have been linked to a series of targeted killings of public officials in Texas.
The Aryan Brotherhood of Texas (ABT) is suspected of being behind the killings of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife along with the separate execution-style murder of McLelland’s main assistant, Mark Hasse.
An unofficial offshoot of the California-based Aryan Brotherhood, the 4,000-strong group was formed in the early 1980s in Texan prisons. Its main aim, said the FBI, was “primarily concerned with the protection of white inmates and white supremacy/separatism”. . . .
. . . . Indeed, the Aryan Brotherhood and other neo-Nazi gangs like Aryan Circles and Public Enemy Number One, along with fringe patriot groups and survivalists’ militias, are inspired by the The Turner Diaries, a blueprint for an apocalyptic race war which will bring down the US government with campaign of terrorism, assassination and economic sabotage targeting federal officials, politicians, Jews, blacks and minorities.
“This [the Texas shootings] could be a signal, at least for this specific group, that they are coalescing around a more open, outright campaign of violence against police and other law enforcement officials,” says Simi. “The big question is what impact that may have on the dozens of different groups like this around the country and whether they’ll say, ‘It’s time for us to step it up as well.’ ”
EXCERPT: . . . . In the wake of the weekend slayings of a Texas district attorney and his wife that prompted investigators to suspect a violent white supremacist prison gang, an assistant U.S. attorney in Houston has withdrawn from a large racketeering case against the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, CBS News correspondent Anna Werner reports from Kaufman, Texas.
Richard O. Ely II, a Houston defense attorney for one of the 34 defendants, told The Dallas Morning News that Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Hileman sent him an email on Tuesday informing him that he was off the case. . . .
“I understand why someone would want to step back,” Ely told Houston television station KTRK-TV. “It makes sense to me, especially people that have families.“ . . .
EXCERPT: . . . . Sam Rosander, who lives in the same unincorporated area of Kaufman County as the McLellands, told the Associated Press that sheriff’s deputies were parked in the district attorney’s driveway for about a month after Hasse was killed. The DA had also armed himself for protection, telling reporters that he carried a gun everywhere and took extra care when opening the door at his home following his assistant’s death.
“I’m ahead of everybody else because, basically, I’m a soldier,” the 23-year army veteran boasted in an interview less than two weeks ago.
Byrnes declined to comment on security arrangements ahead of the shooting and would not go into detail as to the measures now being brought in to protect other individuals.“ . . .
EXCERPT: When I spoke to Terry Pelz late yesterday afternoon, he sounded hoarse and exhausted. “I’m just about talked out,” he said.
Pelz is a former prison warden at the Darrington Unit who now runs a criminal justice consulting firm in Missouri City, about 20 miles southwest of Houston. He’s been in high demand the past couple days, as an expert on the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. The ABT are being eyed as possible suspects in the killing of Kaufman County DA Mike McLelland, his wife Cynthia and assistant DA Mark Hasse. The group is, as we outlined yesterday, a violent and growing criminal enterprise throughout the state and especially in north Texas. . . .
. . . . Although Pelz certainly sees the ABT as a violent and not particularly pleasant group of people, something doesn’t sit right with him in the McLelland and Hasse killings.
“That’d be a big leap for them,” he says. “I just don’t think it’s credible that it’s them.”
Why is the ABT the focus of so much speculation in these murders to begin with? A couple reasons. As The Dallas Morning News’ Tanya Eiserer wrote in February, after Hasse’s killing, the Texas Department of Public Safety issued a bulletin in December, warning that they had “credible information” that the ABT was planning retaliatory attacks on law enforcement officers, after the massive federal indictment that netted 34 of their members, including five high-ranking “generals.” (Yesterday, a Houston federal prosecutor involved in that case quietly withdrew from it, prompting speculation that he was afraid for his family’s safety). . . .
. . . . But in the Kaufman County murders, Pelz says, “It’s just not their style. I studied them for almost 30 years. Like all prison gangs, they make threats on public officials, but I’ve never seen them carry them out.”
Why not? Well, Pelz says, after a moment of reflection, “You’re dealing with a bunch of dumb ol’ white boys who are meth cookers.”
Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a former journalist who’s also studied the ABT, agrees that if the gang is involved, it would be an unprecedented move for them.
“I wouldn’t say [the murders] look like anything we’ve seen before from the ABT,” he says. “If in fact this is them, it would be an astounding kind of move to make.”
He points out that only about 20 prosecutors in the U.S. have been murdered over the course of the entire 20th century. “It’s an incredibly rare phenomenon. And I’ve never heard of any prison gang assassinating correctional officials,” other than the occasional prison guard. . . .
. . . . “We know 211 Crew is also involved in the drug trade,” Potok says. But he sounds skeptical. “How that relates, I don’t know. It’s conceivable that in some way these groups are working together. I’m not suggesting that’s true or that I even think that’s true. It seems hard to believe, frankly.” . . .
. . . . That housecleaning sometimes involves murder, Pelz acknowledges. But he speculates that the murders in Kaufman County — and he’s quick to note that this is only speculation — have something to do instead with the ABT’s growing relationship with Mexican drug cartels, who have bonded across racial lines over their shared love of selling meth.
“Cartels love that meth,” Pelz says. “They make billions off of it.” Last year, as he points out, a raid on a meth lab south of the border seized an eyebrow-raising $4 billion worth of the drug.
Pelz puts his money on a partnership between the ABT and the cartels that’s soured. “Something was disrupted and somebody got pissed off in the cartel, I think,” he says. “And they got one of their associates to take care of business. I just don’t think the ABT was directly involved in it.” . . .
EXCERPT: Two more men connected to a violent white supremacist gang are being sought in connection with the slaying of Colorado’s prisons chief, and authorities are warning officers that they are armed and dangerous.
The search comes about two weeks after prison gang member Evan Ebel — a suspect in the death of Department of Corrections chief Tom Clements on March 19 and of Nathan Leon, a pizza deliveryman, two days earlier — was killed in a shootout with Texas deputies.
While it’s not clear whether the gang, the 211 Crew, is linked to the killing, the warning bulletin issued late Wednesday by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Department is the first official word that other gang members may be involved.
James Lohr, 47, and Thomas Guolee, 31, aren’t being called suspects in Clements’ death, but their names have surfaced during the investigation, El Paso County sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Kramer said. He wouldn’t elaborate.
Kramer said the two are known associates of the 211 gang. . . .
EXCERPT: Parole officials did not realize that a white supremacist gang member had slipped his ankle bracelet and fled custody until five days after the system first flagged him as being delinquent, according to records released Tuesday.
They sent a warrant out for his arrest the next day, one day before he was killed in a shootout with Texas authorities and a day after police now say they think he was involved in the slaying of Colorado prisons chief Tom Clements.
“We have to do better in the future,” said Tim Hand, director of the Department of Correction’s parole division.
Evan Spencer Ebel had been a model parolee until his electronic monitoring bracelet stopped working March 14. Before that, he called in daily, even once calling in alarm because no one had requested his weekly urinalysis test to show he hadn’t been using drugs. . . .
. . . . Judicial officials acknowledged Monday that Ebel’s previous felony conviction was inaccurately recorded and his release in January was an error. . . .
