Nickname for Robert Crooks “Lildog” or “Dog” (

Date Activated 2005
Disclaimer: This report is comprised of the following details: Information obtained through interviews, Public records, official investigations, Crooks' own statements, as well as conclusions and opinions offered by various sources in the course of compiling this report.
The purpose of this report is a sincere effort and intention of preventing any further malicious crimes or deceptions being committed by Robert Crooks against an unsuspecting public. Certain names have been left out for protection and privacy.
Close to 400 recipients are receiving this report.

REPORT: The investigation on Crooks/Taylor (Crooks) has been ongoing for almost four years. Crooks thinks I am a close friend. When I first met Crooks, he painted this elaborate picture of how many people he knew, what a tough “good ol’ boy” and outstanding patriot he was, and how much he had done for America. He talked a good game. You asked me about a profile on Crooks. From my extensive research, I have found that Crooks is a narcissistic, dangerous, professional criminal and a con artist, whom has cheated and lied to/about many of the people he has come into contact with. I have found that Crooks has a sadistic attitude towards those who he rebels against, men and women alike. It seems that Crooks will go to any lengths to hurt a person or organization, for his benefit and needs, (without regard or concern for others), if Crooks feels someone or some organization opposes him. He has, also, been found to falsify statements about people to explain his failures.
Throughout my research and interviews with hundreds of individuals: doctors, lawyers, judges, law enforcement, and the everyday working person, I have found that Crooks targets kindhearted, sympathetic, compassionate, benevolent, naive people. Mainly, people that believe in the cause of maintaining America’s Constitutional sovereignty, enforcing the laws, keeping illegals and drugs out of the United States (From here on, known as Patriots).

Evidence shows that Crooks seeks these people with the intent to con, scam and/or defraud them over the years:
a) Out of money: donations, port-a-potty bills, gas for his truck and generators, and necessities for himself and his dogs (has had different dogs over the years)
b) Out of Material things: marijuana, beer, cigarettes, gas, generators, binoculars, tactical gear, ammo, vehicles, a motor home, a fifth wheel, a horse trailer, food for himself and his dogs, free utilities: gas, sewer, water
c) Into doing things for him: creating and maintaining his various websites, laundry, errands, picking up after him, cleaning his camp site, taking care of his dogs' needs---all with no compensation ever offered.

I know that Crooks is being investigated for Drug Smuggling, Felony Vandalism, Burglary, and Tax Evasion, along with other crimes, both Felony and Misdemeanor. If this Convicted Criminal is smuggling drugs to our kids, threatening peoples’ lives, and putting our organizations at the risk of bad publicity I will help in any way I can, to stop him.
Crooks told a few of us that he “allegedly” ran from the cops for over twelve (12) years regarding a Felony Armed Robbery that he committed in Oregon. Crooks, also, said that he had those records expunged. Being a "Fugitive from Justice" for a Felony, and getting the record expunged for the associated Felony, defies credibility. Investigation of this claim is on-going.
Crooks has a criminal record about three pages long. Including, but not limited to several convictions for Assault and Battery, Weapons Violations, and DUI Charges. Also, Crooks is charge with a Felony in San Diego County (San Diego Superior Court, original case number F89433 which was updated to CR-73887, DA-A87940), for Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
Crooks (AKA: Robert Allen Taylor) was charged with having violated: PC (Penal Code) 245(1) with PC 12022.7 and PC 1192.7(23).

PC 245: Any person who commits an assault upon the person ofanother with a deadly weapon or instrument other than a firearm or byany means of force likely to produce great bodily injury shall bepunished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or fouryears, or in a county jail for not exceeding one year, or by a finenot exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both the fine andimprisonment.

PC 12022.7: Any person who personally inflicts great bodily injury3on any person other than an accomplice in the commission of a felonyor attempted felony shall be punished by an additional andconsecutive term of imprisonment in the state prison for three years.

PC 1192.7 (23): Any felony in which the defendant personally used a dangerous or deadly weapon.

NOTE: ICCU stands for Intensive Coronary Care Unit. The below statement was made by doctor Mushovic, M.D. regarding Crooks’ victim, Mr. Serchio, who was admitted to the ICCU via the emergency room in Coronado Hospital, in Coronado, California, for his severe injuries inflicted by Crooks. Doctor Mushovic, M.D.’s statement: “This 30-year-old male…was assaulted while aboard his boat in the middle of the bay. He jumped overboard to prevent further injury. He indicates that the assailant attempted to run over him with his own boat several times.” “…because of the severities of the injuries about the head and the suspected evidence of linear fracture of the left temporal bone, he was admitted to Coronado Hospital ICCU for treatment and observation for probable cerebral concussion.” (Criminal report is attached above)

Below are some of the State and Federal Criminal Reports on Robert Crooks.


Crooks’ latest crime culminated between August 3 - 13, 2009. The alleged Burglary and Vandalism of a commercial fishing boat in Ventura, CA. (CRIME REPORT #09-11002). If you witnessed anything regarding this crime, please contact the Ventura Police Department at 805-339-4400, regarding crime number #09-11002, and let your local police department know the same information, and make sure that both police departments make a report, since Crooks has left the area. Callers can make these reports anonymously.

In my interviews with several people, police and investigators, it is my understanding that these are the chain of events: Crooks was fired, as captain, of said commercial fishing boat, because the owner discovered that Crooks was a convicted criminal, plus Crooks' true identity became questionable, because of Crooks’ Felony Police Report F89433. This Felony Police Report (F89433) regarding Felony Assault and Battery had the name Robert Allen Taylor, (AKA: Robert Wesley Crooks).

It appears Crooks was, also, fired because he lied about having a Commercial Captain’s license. Crooks had told the boat owner and other witnesses that he did have a Commercial Captain‘s license, as required by law. Additionally, it was reported that Crooks continuously used drugs, drank alcohol, and had demonstrated a clear lack of work ethic over the course of many months.
When the boat’s owner fired Crooks, ordered him to vacate the boat and stay off, Crooks allegedly pre-meditated the extensive vandalism of this boat. Witnesses saw Crooks on the boat, after Crooks was fired. Where during this time, Crooks allegedly punctured holes in the oil filter of the boat’s huge diesel engine and did the same to the boat’s new generator, as well as, ran the boat for two days straight, in the slip, until all the oil in the engine and maybe the generator was dry, thus destroying the diesel engine. The generator is still under inspection. Crooks, also, destroyed ten (10) very expensive pieces of electrical equipment, including the Furuno color video sounder, Echotec video plotter, Furuno plotter, Liquid Video display screen, Faria V-Term watchdog system, Garmin GPS map, ComNav autopilot, WesMar scanning sonar system, VHF radio, and 2MM radio. (See pictures below).

I’ve been to the boat and seen the horrific damage! The owner/victim was asked to send pictures of the crime to police, I have attached these pictures. (The boat is still under inspection for further damage).

Crooks, by phone, admitted the Vandalism to the Investigative Officer at the Ventura Police department. The crime report now is on the DA’s desk: (Case number 2009033305).
It is documented that Crooks tried to get insurance information right around the time he committed the crime in order to benefit himself by defrauding the insurance company and the boat’s owner.
I have spoken to many people and witnesses regarding this crime and have received the actual documents associated with the purchase of this boat and squid permit. Those documents consist of bank, credit card statements, sales papers, etc., all showing this owner/victim (young lady and her failing mother), being the sole financer(s), for this commercial fishing boat and Market Squid Permit. In talking with several witnesses, it seems that the victim(s) were persuaded to invest their life savings to the purchase of this boat and squid permit, based on Crooks' claims, lies and misrepresentations of the profit potential for Commercial Squid Fishing. It appears that Crooks took advantage, of this young lady’s hardship with her seriously ill mother and step father, by making promises and claims he knew were false, including but not limited to: misrepresenting the profit potential end of the business, misrepresenting that he does not (According to the United States Coast Guard) have a Captions License, and misrepresenting the demise of so-called members of Crooks’ Mountain Minutemen group, including himself, should the young lady not make this loan/investment (more on this below). Further evidence shows that this young lady and her mother (believing in the same cause as Crooks, regarding Patriotism), almost lost their home to foreclosure, because Crooks ‘conned’ them into thinking he could captain the boat and could make enough money in five months, (August 2008 - December 2008), so that the young lady would have enough to completely pay off the boat and squid permit, be able to stay home to take care of her parents, and work on/invest in her upcoming project. Additionally, the victim was told by Crooks that he could, also, make enough money, in those five months to enable his ‘organization’ (Mountain Minutemen) to pay a hefty, six figure, down payment to buy Patriot Point, thus "saving" the “demise” of the organization. Subsequent evidence shows that Crooks knew that the purchase of Patriot Point would never take place, regardless of what funds might come in, and the ‘purchase’ was a ruse, playing on his young lady’s/victims' patriotism.

In consulting with other Captains in the squid industry, it appears as though Crooks’ lack of10Captain’s skills in squid fishing, and lack of effort or work ethic, is responsible for the business failing. The business made only 1 / 7th of the money that the victim/owner put into the boat, business and squid permit. I’ve met the victim (young lady) before this incident and she is a wonderful person, who sacrifices a lot to take care of her mother and step-dad. Her parents both in wheelchairs, and were both in the final stages of their fatal diseases: stage 4 cancer (step-father) and Lou Gehrig's Disease, (mother). The victim’s father passed only a few months after Crook’s horrible actions and lie’s toward this family.

This young lady, that owns the boat, was adopted and had just met her birth father (a former US Marine) about five years ago. Her birth father is the one who discovered, and revealed to her, Crooks’ past history: his prior Felony Charge in San Diego, one of Crooks’ aliases, Robert Allen Taylor, and the fact that Crooks did not have a Captain’s license as he had represented. As a result of these revelations, Crooks began a campaign of publicly spreading rumors of fabricated, outrageous lies about the victim‘s natural father. Crooks personally told me some of these vile accusations. The victim’s natural father has three other young daughters that may be hurt by Crooks’ hideous, slanderous, defamatory accusations. But, Crooks didn’t stop there. Further into my research, I found that Crooks verbally threatened the life of the victims’ natural father several different times. There is a police report regarding Crooks‘ threats, on file, at the Chula Vista police department in California.

Numerous witnesses reported Crooks has been addicted to drugs and alcohol for many years and has started drinking heavily, again, off and on over the last six to seven months. Witnesses and pictures circulated by Crooks, and others, have confirmed this fact. Crooks, allegedly, is using people’s donations to purchase drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, and prostitutes instead of financing border operations as Crooks solicited for, from donors and followers.


During my investigations, I have found records where a (patriot), gave Crooks $4000.00 around the month of July, 2009, (In the beginning of August is when Crooks circulated the pictures and a video of him and the girl, below, that he ‘claims’ is a prostitute).
Crooks was no where near the border nor conducting any border operations. In fact, Crooks had not been seen at the border area, at all, for months, in fact, almost a year. The exception was to attend a one day July 4th social event.

Crooks has Hepatitis C.

Crooks, admitted to sleeping with prostitutes. The above two pictures are of one of the ‘alleged’ prostitutes, that Crooks claimed to sleep with. Crooks sent these pictures, plus other pictures, and a video, via email, to a lot of us. (The girl was totally unaware that the video was being taken. The other photos and video are not attached to this email). Witnesses say that Crooks sent these pictures over the internet for bragging rights. To me, if Crooks didn’t tell the prostitute(s) about his incurable Hepatitis C disease, it’s attempted murder. If you are a possible victim, or want to confirm this evidence, contact Beverly Thomas of the Southern California Health Dept. 949 608 4470


Crooks has gone by many aliases as you can see by the above names. I reviewed Robert Wesley Crooks’ credit history, he has one item on his credit report, which brings me to the conclusions: that either Crooks just got out of prison about five years ago, or he has just started using his ‘believed’ real name again, or Robert Wesley Crooks is another alias used by this man. It may be Crooks’ intent to not leave a paper trail for fear his past may catch up to him.
Crooks ran his Minutemen ‘Organization’ out of the state of California. In my findings, Crooks has different websites with Pay Pal accounts in which he solicits donations. Crooks, also, gets donations by mail, wire transfers and hand-outs, plus he sells his cups, hats and T-shirts. Crooks has not, at this time, reported any income to the IRS or the California Franchised Tax Board. His Mountain Minutemen organization is NOT a Non-profit Organization. I highly recommend that, if you, or anyone you know, has given Crooks donations, no matter how small, contact the IRS, immediately, at 800-829-0433, to make sure your donations were reported properly. You may want to, also contact the Franchised tax board in your state as well as the state of California at 800-952-5665, to report money given to Crooks.

In being around Crooks, studying his ‘character‘, and talking to many witnesses, including Crooks’ other ‘friends’, he has badmouthed, made unkind remarks, and literally lied about extremely great patriots, like: Charlie Uno, Dick Buck, Shorty, Viking, Jeff Schwilk, Kate Hilton, Carl Braun, Chris Simcox, T.J. Myers, Weasel, Bonfire, Radar, Melissa Gardner, Dusty Lane, Arizona Patriot, Treesman, and many more. It’s interesting that Crooks is badmouthing all of them, and literally lying about some of them, after most of them have done so much for him.
More regarding Crooks’ character: When Crooks first came to the border, he ‘told’ everyone that his residence was at Patriot Point, which is located south of Campo, California, about 30 feet from the American/Mexican border. Crooks portrayed himself as a dedicated patriot, and according to him, had become so outraged by the porous US border, that he made the “sacrifice” of coming to the border, setting up a permanent post and dedicating his life to "guarding our nation". The truth is that Crooks was living rent-free on private property, off the border, in Jacumba, California, in exchange for caretaking duties. Crooks, failing at that, was replaced and asked to leave. Having no where to go, he then, proceeded to set up camp at Patriot Point as a squatter, and created his new patriot persona.

Crooks exploited the national outrage regarding the illegal alien/border issues, thus enabling him to justify squatting on private property and soliciting donations. Crooks’ stories ranged form saying that the Indians gave him that property, to the property was government land. Crooks maintained this ruse for over two (2) years, rent-free. Additionally, when Crooks would find attention (and probably donations) dwindling, he would commit irrational acts “to bring attention to himself and feed his narcissistic ego“. Those acts were very damaging to the very movement he professed to be devoted to. Crooks has been heard saying that he didn't care about the damage to the movement or law abiding patriots, it was his goal was to bring attention to him, even if it was negative.

The information that I accumulated from many witnesses, and being around Crooks and his ‘organization‘, are that the ‘members’ of the "Mountain Minutemen" were actually independent border observers that were merely acquainted with Crooks and associated with him when they were conducting their independent operations in the area. Patriot Point was used by those patriots, at Crooks' invitation, as an operations staging area due to the desolation of the area. Safety in numbers. There were no formal meetings, organized agendas, official business or scheduled operations. The Mountain Minutemen consisted of a website owned by Crooks (paid for by donations) whereby Crooks could solicit donations for his ‘border operations’ group. No one benefited from the donations except for Crooks. There was no accounting of donations nor was anyone else privy to the amount collected. Crooks solicited these donations for his sole benefit.

Crooks maintained an ongoing feud with another rogue ‘patriot’, and it is believed that this adversary contacted the owner of the Patriot Point property and reported Crooks' squatting on the property. The owner legally evicted Crooks from the property. After Crooks heard that he was going to be evicted from Patriot Point, Crooks simply went AWOL, leaving his cluttered campsite and the group that he called himself the leader and founder of. I personally witnessed the fact that Crooks, abandoned ‘his’ group, and left them to clean up the former Patriot Point when Crooks completely abandoned his position (it took about a weeks worth of work). These patriots (men and women, but mainly one Marine) had to drop what they were doing, and spend their time and hard labor getting trucks, a motor home, a fifth wheel, supplies, tents, generators, a horse trailer, etc., off Patriot Point which is on a very steep hill with a washed out road, and gullies about two feet deep. If these patriots didn’t get Crooks’ stuff, that he mainly got from donations, off Patriot Point immediately, everything would have been lost and Crooks would have been charged with destruction of private property. Again, Crooks never offered any money to anyone to clean up his mess, that he should have been responsible for.

Just prior to Crooks' departure, a young man, Radar, with no experience on the border, arrived for a pre-planned, two week stay, to help Crooks "guard the border". Led to believe, by Crooks, that Crooks had no money or food, Radar brought all his own money, plus allegedly some of his mother’s money, in order to buy food and provisions for both, him and Crooks. Witnesses state that, Crooks told Radar that he was going out to go buy the food and provisions. Crooks took all of Radar's and his mother’s money and left him there, not returning. For days, without any means of protection, little food or provisions, Crooks left this Young Man alone at Patriot Point, without any communication from him. (Again, Patriot Point is only thirty feet off a hostile border, where drug wars have been known to happen.) Patriots showed up to assist the Young Man. Later, Crooks, by phone, made the excuse to those patriots, that he had gone off to work on a fishing boat in order to raise the funds to buy Patriot Point. Crooks, also tried to solicit funds from some of those same patriots, to try to ‘purchase’ Patriot Point.
15I communicated with the owners‘ legal council of Patriot Point, and if they were to sell, they would want 2.5 million dollars. In doing more research, and uncovering ‘facts’ according to many witnesses, Crooks had gone to the young lady/victim of the fishing boat, and made up a fabrication that a dirty San Diego Sheriff was after him, wanting to arrest him, because Crooks and ‘his’ organization was interfering with the drug trafficking in the area. Crooks told his unsuspecting young lady/victim that this Sheriff was not getting paid by the Cartel, because the drugs were not coming into America, and according to Crooks’ fabrication, was wanting to arrest Crooks, on false charges, and that’s why, ‘according to what Crooks told his victim and a few other witnesses‘, Crooks had to suddenly flee the Patriot Point location. Crooks was gone from the border area for over a year, yet is still asking people, via phone calls and his various websites, for donations to finance his ‘border operations‘. The ‘members’ of his Mountain Minutemen ‘organization’ have since formed their own group and continue to conduct themselves as legitimate, dedicated border observers, as well as independent observers. During Crooks tenure on Patriot Point, he widely distributed his Mountain Minutemen T-shirts and caps for anyone and everyone to wear, regardless of any affiliation. Since his departure, Crooks has hijacked and allegedly committed copyright infringements of photos, and possible plagiarism (from blogs, websites and personal emails) of border observers if they happened to be wearing the Mountain Minutemen shirts or caps and posted them to his website as ‘evidence’ of his current border group activities in order to continue to solicit donations. Crooks has now taken his entire blog off his site. Further investigation shows that Crooks’ web master was tired of not getting paid to keep the blog running.

In September 2009, Crooks showed up at a border-watch, in Arizona, called “Operation Spike,“ that was organized by the Patriot's Coalition. There was an open invitation to all border observers, independent or otherwise. Crooks, as he has done before, handed out his t-shirts to the patriots attending, and has since circulated pictures of attendees wearing the shirts. If Crooks does what he has done several times before, it won't be long before these pictures of independent border watchers wearing Crooks’ Mountain Minutemen T-shirts will appear on Crooks’ website, (should Crooks get his forum back), with Crooks’ intention of soliciting donations for his "month long operation". Indeed, no where in the body of the emails Crooks circulated, with the pictures, does he acknowledge the true name of the operation or acknowledge the organizers. Crooks, claimed to many different people that several women, in different organizations and in ‘his’ organization, along with the owner of the boat, have either tried to approach him for a relationship, or Crooks ‘claimed’ that he’s had a relationship with them. In being around Crooks all these years, talking to many witnesses, and talking and being around these women that Crooks has made these claims against, I found the contrary. I found no evidence that any of these women did have, or will have anything to do with Crooks in the form of a relationship. One female, in one of the patriot organizations, that Crooks claimed was making advances toward him, stated that she found Crooks, “absolutely repulsive“.

I’ve observed Crooks making his peers and other patriots feel sorry for him, so Crooks can receive free donations, food, and material things. Bi-weekly , there was a retired Sherriff’s group who would donate their time and gas, and bring Crooks a lot of food. Meanwhile, many other patriots were doing the same thing by donating food, supplies and money.
There was also a situation involving the unpaid bills, on Crooks‘ port-a-potty (portable toilet) account. Crooks was responsible for theses bills, yet persuaded another patriot to attach the bill to his credit card, and then, Crooks convinced a ‘Ladies Organization’ to pay the bill each month. When the “Light Up The Line” Event took place, a few extra port-a-potties were added to this bill. The other patriot organizations paid for their part, but Crooks did not pay his share for months, until the Port-a-potty service stated that they were going to stop cleaning Crooks’ port-a-potty, and remove it from Patriot Point. Crooks promptly solicited for donations specifically to cover the back port-a-potty bills (allegedly several hundred dollars). The entire bill, was paid by an anonymous donor, yet Crooks continued to solicit and receive many donations for the so-called unpaid port-a-potty bills after he knew the bill had been paid in full. As was his habit, Crooks never disclosed the amounts received or how they were spent.
Crooks is armed with illegal firearms (non-registered). Crooks has been charged with a Felony! The law states he should not even have access to firearms! Especially after the incident where Crooks discharged a round from his weapon, (hand gun), that could have gotten others hurt very badly. More about this in my separate report. I’ll send names and other evidence, including evidence regarding Crooks’ border activities that I’ve accumulated over the last four years, privately and separately from this report, to protect the innocent.

Crooks had a picture of his illegal rifle on his MYSPACE account. He has recently taken it off, but the police already have the evidence.


It’s the violence of Crooks’ former and current crimes, the fact that he is being investigated for Drug Smuggling, Felony Vandalism, Burglary, and Tax Evasion, along with other crimes, both Felonies and Misdemeanors, and his obvious lack of regard for others that has me and others concerned.
If anyone has any other information regarding Crooks, please it is very important to contact your local law enforcement agency, in conjunction with the Ventura Police Department at 805-339-4400, (reference CASE NUMBER 09-11002) and make sure the police, at both Police Departments, make a report, since Crooks has already vacated the area, to Arizona, is now in a different area of California. You can call in anonymously. Make sure the law enforcement agency you make a report at, also contacts the Ventura police. 805-339-4400

I’m sure all dedicated patriots of good morals and conscience will help the Feds and police stop Crooks before he harms someone else. As demonstrated by the Shawna Forde tragedy, enormous damage to our movement and our country can be inflicted by the conduct of a single individual.

Another concern are the posts, on blogs, that people throughout the Nation are reading. Some of these negative post could be harming Patriot organizations across America.

“LIL Dog is an asshole! … He's just another meth freak with a giant ego and an undeserved since of “accomplishment.”

“At one time, Crooks was… But his penchant for name-calling and gunplay has made him persona non grata among Minutemen leaders…”

“… in July 2007 Crooks distributed a chilling video that appeared to show a Mexican immigrant being hunted and killed by a Minuteman sniper using a night-vision scope. After the Intelligence Report publicized the video, Crooks told law enforcement investigators that he and another Minuteman had staged it because "[w]e're old men and we're bored."
Minuteman Project leader Jim Gilchrist subsequently banned his group's members from having any contact with Crooks, and stated publicly that he would no longer provide Crooks with supplies.
Whereas the Minuteman Project and most similar major civilian border patrol groups have detailed "Standard Operating Procedures," the Mountain Minutemen's rules of engagement, as detailed on the group's website, are basic: "Don't shoot anybody you're not supposed to shoot."

by » Sun May 18, 2008 9:06 pm“There is no doubt that LIL Dork is an idiot for making the video, but even worse is posting it under the name "Cockroach Hunter" on youtube. I am sick of being called a racist because of the actions of A-holes like LIL Dog…”

“Robert Crooks initially denied any connection to videos that seemed to depict an undocumented immigrant being shot on the border. He later admitted staging the videos and posting them online. “We're old men and we're bored,” he said.”

“Lil Dog isn't a bad guy, if you spend any time with him you would know that. But he is a complete liar and thinks alot of himself. Lil Dog expects everyone to take care of him and kiss his ass for the privilege! I think he made that video to make the La Raza jerks believe we are killing folks on the border. It's hard to see it as anything but racist, though.”

by » Sun May 18, 2008 7:17 pm “What kind of stupid Jackass would make a video like that? That video tells me all I need to know about "LIL Dog".”

“We have worked in close proximity with Robert L Crooks for two years. Our distaste for his methodology is well documented. We consider Mr. Crooks to be a "Lone Wacko." We have a strict policy, that anyone who associates with Little Dog is not welcome in our group… We do not tolerate irresponsible discharge of firearms.”
Every interview I see with LIL Dork he acts like an unhinged redneck.

Minuteman Santa Clarita Rally, PART 2

The Santa Clarita Rally even had MecHa 3 Goons with video cameras interviewing naive attendees for their You TUbe account re-use....

2 more MecHa goons with video cameras

From an Eyewitness account of the rally:

At a busy popular corner of the Santa Clarita City Center, there was a flurry of patriotic sights and sounds last morning of Saturday January 16th, 2010. Readers might recall another similar political rally at the same location back in 2008. About 200 people participated in the last Minutemen rally, according to Santa Clarita’s newspaper, The Signal. Magic Mountain Parkway and Valencia Blvd, southwest corner is a popular event spot. Hundreds of smiling broad-based citizens with American flags holding Tax Revolt and Pro-Citizenship placards lined the streets and sidewalks. Also, Santa Clarita’s drivers by could hear the event’s guest speaker’s comments and many popular songs with pertinent political messages like playing The Beatles song, ‘The Tax Man’.

The event’s host and Master Ceremonies, Frank Jorge of AV Independent Minutemen keep things moving along for 2 hours. This event had been organized by many ‘umbrella’ volunteer political organizations. Here is a list of the helpful groups: Antelope Valley Independent Minutemen. Campo Minutemen, Ventura County Tea Party Tax Revolt Minutemen, Santa Clarita Tea Party Tax Revolt Minutemen, Ventura Tea Party Tax Revolt, Santa Clarita Tea Party Tax Revolt, and We The People org. Other minor local tax revolt and pro-citizenship organizations managed to contribute their networking and small assistance to make this event a success.

The rally was scheduled for 11 am to 1 pm. Several important quest speakers used this event to get their points across to all listening intently and all passers-by. Primarily, this event was another in the many Tax Revolt or ‘Tea Parties’ as the voter’s angry reaction to the Congress and the President’s pointless over-spending and budget busting. Also, illegal alien immigration issues were covered due to an impeding new additional Congressional amnesty bill, written by U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. That bill is #4321. With the current great dissatisfaction with elected sitting city, state, and federal legislative incumbents, Kathleen ‘Suzy’ Evans was a guest speaker running for the State Assembly 40th District in the San Fernando Valley. She spoke on solving many community problems including the local illegal alien immigration problem. “It is the elephant in the room that no one wants to discuss. If you talk about illegal immigration, you’re called a racist or a bigot. I am not afraid to talk about illegal immigration because I am not afraid to speak the truth. It is a fiscal as well as social nightmare for many parts of the United States, but especially so for all of us in California. This is a fact: The taxpayers of California spend more than $13 Billion dollars a year on subsidies to people who are in this country illegally. So here’s a question we should all be asking: at a time when we are struggling with our state budget, and our legislators are cutting firefighters, laying off teachers, closing our state parks and even letting criminals out of prisons early in order to save money. Why did they not cut any of the subsidies to illegal immigrants? We need to stop placing the needs of those who are here illegally before the needs of our own families, our businesses and our friends.”
The next guest spoke; Linda Paine is a member of the Santa Clarita Tea Party group. Ms. Paine said the Minutemen aren't hateful, but misunderstood. "Voters and Americans should be able to say ‘no' to illegal immigration without being called a racist," Paine said. The next person to speak, Santa Clarita Valley Independent Minutemen’s leader Roger Gitlin said the proposed immigration reform could ruin the country and the economy and he's discouraged enough about it to help organize the rally this weekend. "Mexico can't export its poverty to the U.S.," Mr. Gitlin said, referring to illegal alien immigrants. "I love this country. In a short period of time it could be unrecognizable.” "The people who come here and wave Mexican or Colombian flags are not interested in legal US citizenship," Mr. Gitlin said. "People from poverty come here for economic salvation, not to become citizens. People that don't have a means to support themselves should go back to their own home country." The next guest presenter, William Scarpino is a practiced speaker and representative of the Ventura County Tea Party. His outspoken group has been very active hosting public successful events at the Ventura City Center on Victoria Boulevard in the last year. Those Tax Revolt event’s attendance have been huge, very positive, informative and vocal. Mr. Scarpino powerfully expressed the taxpayer’s need to shrink our government. The Obama administration over spending will hurt the already shrinking middle-class of employed voters.

As a nice surprise for myself and many other event activists attending was hearing the next scheduled speaker’s comments. Bob Kellar, a Santa Clarita City Councilman was very powerful and informative since his views came from someone trying to work for voters inside of a mostly liberal over-spending government. Clearly, Mr. Kellar was very irritated in his podium presentation and in his comments. “The voter’s views are being ignored by their elected representatives,” he stated. Then next speaker was a very familiar and very influential face in the American and Mexican communities; it is ‘WethePeople’ administrator, Ray Herrera. Mr. Herrera’s message was building on Mr Kellar’s views expressing that every voter MUST get active and politically work in 2010 elections to influence upcoming elections away from bigger government and less personal freedom for individuals.

The next group of event speakers was very important for all in attendance to hear and understand because the next speaker group relates their first-hand experience dealing with the murders of American citizens and law enforcement officers by illegal aliens. Craig & Debbi Britt of the US border monitors, Campo Minutemen spent their time talking about the recent violent murder of ICE Border Agent Rosas. Agent Rosas had a young family and his death is still unsolved when he was shot in the head execution style four times by border ‘coyotes’ at the border. Mr. Britt was helpful in contributing important crime information to the Federal authorities investigating this agent’s killing. The next speaker is a direct crime victim of illegal alien crimes in Los Angeles. Activist, Mr. Jamiel Shaw Sr spoke courageously and eloquently about his college-bound son, Jamiel. An illegal alien gang member recently released from city jail for carrying a gun and assaulting a police officer murdered Jamiel Shaw Jr, his son. This gang member was released before the city police officials told ICE officials of his custody as prescribed by Federal law. Mr. Shaw and his family are influential in getting a Los Angeles ordinance called ‘Jamiel’s Law’ to be on the ballot by Los Angeles voter’s initiative process as a response to this tragedy. Sadly, the voter registrar said not enough valid voter signatures were collected to qualify this petition for the election only months ago. There are some major questions about that voter registrar decision. The next speaker pair had another personal connection to illegal alien crimes right here in Santa Clarita. Mr. & Mrs. John & Barbara March told of they’re heartbreaking experiences. Illegal aliens killed their adult son during his duties working as a Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff. In a routine traffic stop, he was murdered. The murder was found, tried, and is serving a life sentence in solitary confinement, instead of the righteous death penalty.

On a lighter note, the next speaker was not a crime victim or leader of a volunteer activism group. The speaker’s point of view was just as important to be heard. Mr. Mario Alvarez, a Canyon Country resident spoke to the crowd about his immigration experiences. He came from Mexico City 49 years ago and has been a citizen since 1979. He told his audience that it is wrong for aliens to come here from Mexico, illegally. He proudly stated that the USA is a great generous country and had his advice to Mexican illegal alien immigrants is to not enter the USA legally. His speech had drivers at the intersection responding in impromptu cheers.

Some event speakers personally blamed President Obama for the countries’ problems. Mr. Frank Jorge of Antelope Valley Independent Minutemen shared his negative perceptions about President Obama and his administration. At one point, Mr. Jorge questioned President Obama place of birth and his citizenship credentials for being elected as the President of the US. Mr. Jorge says that Barrack Obama maybe should be working in the White House, only in the capacity of a service butler. The next and final speaker was Robert Crooks of the problematic Mountain Minutemen. Mr. Crooks message was for everyone to ‘buy guns and ammo’ for the upcoming civil war in the US. People experiencing and listening to this rally came up with many conclusions and might be interesting to share. Many uncomfortable, bellicose and unconstructive views of any guest speakers with their personal attacks on named public officials were not well received or easy accepted by the event’s listeners. I heard it said at this event, “Some people should not be given a microphone to turn a positive informative rally into a place to personally rant and vent”. It seems it’s much more interesting to hear new candidates for upcoming election, and new positive comments with practical solutions to our countries’ problems from the rallies podium than to turn the event into a ‘witch hunt’.

How to ruin a public rally event...Santa Clarita Rally trash talking starts...

Several known local activists know to me due to my years ‘in the trenches’ helping to produce similar local events showed up to this event. Jean ‘Jean-from-Fillmore’ and ‘Eagle 1’, Gloria ‘Olde-Glory’, Susan ‘Standing-alone’, and Sam ‘Derail-amnesty-com’ come to mind. Chelene Nightengale of the now dead, Save Our State volunteer organization has burned several leaders in this ‘Cause’ and moved on without any Chelene apologies to the people she damaged. Even though some people have tried to resurrect Save Our State as a new and improved volunteer organization ‘’, it seems this Santa Clarita event organizers and their ‘lapdogs’ can't let things drop with in the new ‘’. They’re still taking trash behind people’s back or carrying on a ‘witch-hunt’ just like the hated Ms. Nightengale. That ‘’ inside clique group REALLY is what I was concerned about. Clearly, it is just another incarnation of a backstabbing everyone Chelene old SOS's again with ‘’, just with new people in charge. That’s VERY sad for the success of our ‘The Mission’.

Is this what happens when ‘’ get a new junkie website and contribute to a street rally in Santa Clarita ??
Begin to ‘trash-talk’ people who attended and helped to bring rally guest speakers????? WOW, here we go again.
How come ‘’ look and talk and act like snarky Chelene already. Sad or hypocritical...Who knows which?

QUOTE-Tony and Dennis would show up at the same location and bloodshed would ensue. CalifNative did indeed put in appearance but AmericanPatriot77 was absent. And no, the former caused no problems whatsoever, which is pretty much his M.O. Mr. Pariah is usually no trouble so long as he is deprived of an Internet connection.-UNQUOTE

Sam didn't check his facts on his false ‘’ comment, so this is inaccurate statement. But, for a lawyer and university professor, he was never someone for exact facts, names, and dates. That’s very bad for a ‘’ spokesperson. People read Sam’s account of the Santa Clarita rally event, just as BAD and sloppy on the real goings on.
I attended the public and open Santa Clarita Rally. IN FACT, I got more rally attendance there by my 'internet connections’ networking with my Tax Revolt and Minuteman Project friends (You or your mindless cronies didn't) and two of your guest speakers were there & spoke because of my 'internet connections’. (You might have just lost those contributors for any rally future events with this ‘back-stabbing’ stunt against me. They don't like your trash talking and all.) You forgot to be nice/positive and mention that ONLY.
Instead you continued the 'hate Tony' diatribe with your petty Chelene-like posse of clone hive minders like jeanfromfillmore, and such. (Jeanfromfillmore was Chelene’s biggest supporter and lapdog. Jean only changed away when the authoritarian ‘wind’ blew differently. Now she thinks she’s a leader in

MORE Chelene-like mindset ‘’ Proof:

QUOTE-"We have video of what Roger Gitlin said and will review it. If we find that his views do not coincide with ours, he will not be invited to speak at another event. Let's wait and see, but I heard what he said, and from what I remember, the paper quoted what he said."-UNQUOTE

Got Freedom of Speech in jingoistic or is afraid of that ??? Just like in George Orwell’s 1984, Gestapo-like FBISacto, orgs forums... have become what you hate. still haven't learned from the Chelene jingoistic experience.
Jean is an org 'flea', which jumps from org to org for her own shallow personal ego needs and wishes.
Think about it before it’s too late.
The joke's on you and the problematic It shows you don’t learn from your past organizing xenophobic experiences and you still do the same stupid stuff like this.
