Neo-Nazi gang may get brought down because members discussed murder coverup — on a 911 call

Published

on

A newly unsealed Department of Justice indictment reveals that federal officials first started investigating a neo-Nazi gang called Aryan Circle when some of its members accidentally discussed covering up a murder during a 911 call.

The Daily Beast reports that trouble for the Aryan Circle began during a white supremacist house party in Evangeline Parish, Louisiana in 2016.

While at the party, gang members Jeremy Jordan and Clifton Hallmark got into an argument that allegedly ended with Jordan shooting Hallmark in the head. Two women in the gang, including one who was Hallmark’s wife, drove to a gas station to call 911 to get help for Hallmark, who at that time was clinging to life.

However, before she thought anyone on the other line could hear her, one of the women explained to the other that they were making up a cover-up story about how Hallmark got shot to protect Jordan from going to jail.

“We are going to tell them he got robbed, OK?” the woman said as the 911 dispatcher listened in.

The botched cover-up attempt set in motion a chain of events that the Daily Beast notes now threatens to destroy the entire Aryan Circle.

“The shooting got investigators’ attention,” the publication writes. “But the cover-up might bring down the group. The indictment unsealed last week accuses Jordan of using a firearm in a crime resulting in death, and seven Aryan Circle members of accessory after the fact to the murder.”

Right-wing activists call on Mitch McConnell to stop blocking election security bills

On Wednesday, CNN reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing renewed pressure to take up election security legislation, from a pair of unlikely sources: Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, and FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon.

Norquist — who once famously said that he wanted to slash government to a size where he could "drown it in a bathtub" — called for hand-marked paper ballots, and urged Congress to pass something similar to the bipartisan Secure Elections Act, which would have given states incentives to switch to secure voting methods and promoted data-sharing to identify threats. The measure was first introduced in 2017 by Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), James Lankford (D-OK), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), but never came to a vote.

According to the report, the whistleblower became aware that the president made a "promise" to this unspecified foreign leader, and was so disturbed by the nature of that promise that he or she filed a complaint through channels set up to help whistleblower claims involving classified information.

Published

on

The next step of the white supremacist attack on the United States is creating a list of Jewish people.

Mother Jones reported the story Wednesday that any Jews who complain about white nationalists are listed and tracked by a fast-growing group on the app Telegram.

An anonymous activist created a list of 367 Telegram channels that he or she posted on PrivateBin last week, as the app is quickly becoming a welcoming place for those who've been shut out of other apps, social media or websites.
