Anyone else here familiar with Santa Ana?
They are trying to make a political statement; not trying to buy a condo.

They want and need publicity. That is why some of us are doing our damnest to "shine a light" on this guy.

If you do not have anything to offer other than your so-called "sound advice" then, I repeat - fuck off!

They WANT publicity. This is the whole point. Obviously they'd like asylum as well, but they WANT publicity to shine on what has happened to them - they want the world to know that the British Govt can arrest, charge you and imprison you for writing something that is legal.

What this means in its simplest form is that any of you Americans who write something on here that can be read by someone in England, can be arrested for it the minute you set foot on English soil.

So the next time you type something not politically correct about the jews or deny the holocaust, you could be doing seven years if the Brit. Govt. ever catch you on Brit. soil EVEN THOUGH it is legal for you to type it where you are.

THAT'S why they want the publicity.

Well, I have posted about Simon and Stephen on three other forums. One closed my blog. I don't know if it was because I mentioned them or because of my comments in general. Probably both. I also sent both fellows a money order and I will be sending more. I've also contacted a couple of Churches in Santa Ana and asked them to look in on them and/or contact the jail and inquire about their welfare. I haven't heard anything, but I'll keep trying.

I also wrote letters to each of the Senators from my State and asked if they could do something to expedite their release.

We Americans should be up in arms over this. Once upon a time we were British who came here for more freedom. Have we forgotten?

I don't think Mr. Whittle is a white resistence martyr... be in a jail awaiting extradition isn't so harsh as lose all his money while fighting the government as did mr. Tom Metzger and his family.

Tom Metzger is the real white martyr, a man of profound knowledge and wisdom that suffered enormous prosecution.

Instead of martyr, I think Mr. Whittle as a courageous man.

America likes to cry over nickels, forget about the small time racialists and get on the bigger ones: Tom Metzger, Rockwell, Hitler and others.

Just to publish a probably "racist" cartoon or anything like that don't make Whittle a "martyr", but just another courageous guy.

I think Mr. Whittle put a small brick, let's build the entire house and kick the niggers out!

What is the latest on these two heroes? I thought they were supposed to have a hearing on December 8, 2008? And did they ever get a haircut?

I am far more than merely "interested" -- as I am hosting a political asylum applicant at my home, Henrik Holappa, and have paid a lawyer $2,000.

His webpage on my website (http://johndenugent.com/henrik.html:

A Finn in Pittsburgh



Henrik Holappa, now 23, fired from every job, even security guard, expelled from the army he loved. Now a political refugee and exile since July 2008, and staying with and helping me in Pittsburgh, Pennsyvlania.

My family has served Finland as soldiers for centuries; Holappa is actually a place name in my ancient Scandinavian country. I find myself in America for two reasons: 1) I always wanted to visit this vast and fascinating country, an offshoot of Europe that has changed the whole world; 2) There is no freedom of speech now in Finland, except to discus the weather, and I face 4.5 years in prison if I return to my homeland. I dared from 2005 on to ask publicly why our white, clean, modern, crime-free Scandinavian country needs to let in immigrants from Sudan, Somalia and Turkey who viciously gang-rape white Finnish women. There was no gang rape in Finland for thousands of years before this recent Muslim influx.

I say it is the immigrant gang-rapists who are the racists and they are the women-haters by degrading, raping and disrespecting the beautiful white girls and women who are the natives of my nation. I say it is they who hate, who are “extremely dangerous” and should go to prison and then go home immediately. But the Finnish government, which is fanatically “politically correct,” calls me, a 23-year-old Finn, a “racist” and “extremely dangerous” for saying out loud what almost all Finns really think and say privately but are now afraid now to say publicly any more. This fear began in 1995 when the media pushed the Finnish parliament into passing so-called “hate-speech laws.”

The “politically correct” government now calls me a “white supremacist,” suggesting I think the white race is best.

But I see black, brown and yellow “white supremacists.” I see immigrants all moving voluntarily to white countries, to every white country around the world, and to only white countries. They literally crawl through the desert, climb into sweltering metal shipping containers, and paddle rafts and little boats, all to try to enter any white nation they can. Who then by their actions act as if white countries were best? Who shows an absolute preference for white countries, for all white countries, even preferring death to staying in their original country?

I advocate that Third World peoples should instead love, and feel pride in, their own races and fix their own social problems, not import them here. I am glad if Finland or America, England, France or Australia, help suffering Third World countries. But if they bring us their violence, drugs, crime, hate, anti-white racism and white supremacism to us, these “guests” have worn out their welcome.

In America I am now seeking freedom and protection for my right to oppose all hate-based racism, all violence toward women, all white supremacism by any race, and all intolerance -- no matter which race practices them.

And I embrace this great country that was founded by and for Europeans like me in the 1600s. Europeans like me have come here for 400 years, fitting in, seeking freedom to speak out, to protest wrongs and to say one's opinion without the police knocking on the door the next day.

I have already had my home searched three times, I have been arrested for three days, kept in a cell with the light burning day and night with no way to call a lawyer, and I was told in June that the top prosecutor in Finland, Mika Illman, will “get” me so as to “make an example” of “racists.” Yet he belongs to the Jewish people, and his people, in Israel, crush the Palestinians every day with tanks and anti-Arab racism and torture. Amnesty International has put Israel on the list of “torturing governments” every single year since 1963. In Israel non-Jews are not even allowed to marry Jews, or convert them to any other religion. If Israel openly calls itself a “Jewish state,” can Finland also stay a “Finnish state”?

I hope America will now protect a young man who opposes gang rape in Finland by violent, women-hating, undesirable immigrants, who still opposes it via the Internet to his homeland, and who now seeks to shield American women from the same violence and racism.

And I spend time here to warn Americans that the madness of political correctness will lead to throwing them too in prison for their views. America, for 400 years you have been, as your national anthem says at the end, “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

But if I go back and am brave in Finland, I will not stay free for long. It is time for Americans to stay brave -- so at least their country can stay free. And part of that freedom is a woman's absolute right to walk without fear on the streets of her own city without a gang of foreign men stalking her to rape her, or make lascivious comments about her, or call her a “whore” because she does not cover up her whole body Muslim-style or convert to the religion of Islam.

I am here also to remind Americans not to lose their freedoms to “political correctness” as my country has, for the alternative would be prison for them too, rape for their women and girls, and eternal fear of their own government.

Here is my blog: www.enationalist.com/henrik-holappa

The best for Henrik would be to marry a nice WN American girl. And he is a very fine, brilliant, funny, courageous, eloquent young man.

I would like to draw our attention now to a case that cries out for ACTION.

As you may well know, there is a truly shocking case going on right now in a Santa Ana, California jail, and our movement has miserably failed to aid two brave British WNs being held there by Homeland Security. They need letters of support -- and they need money too.

Here is the story of these two brave Brits, shamefully abandoned by our movement that obviously, as David Duke said to me back in 1989, is STILL not any sort of "movement" – but instead only a "Cause."



They were convicted of hate speech in England and fled to the US on July 14, 2008 (which happens to be my birthday). Homeland Security Jew Michael Chertoff then put them straight in jail with Mexicans and blacks in darkest Santa Ana, California.

VNN has info on this.

http://www.vnnforum.com/showthread.php?t=76514

Here is a brief Stormfront thread on this:

http://www.stormfront.org/forum/showthread.php?t=559369

Here is Dr. David Duke's article from last August:

Here is the latest news from a hostile website -- they're still in a cage in California after eight months for a hate-speech conviction that is NOT a crime in the USA!!!!

[and to the other comrade, same address]

Dear white brother Steve Whittle,

Here is a money order for $50, along with this letter. I am outraged by what has happened to you because of 1) the Zio-British government; 2) the Zio-American government, and 3) the lack of attention paid by white nationalists heretofore to your plight. I myself only recently learned about your case. (My maternal grandfather was from Ghool in Yorkshire, by the way, and was a wonderful Englishman.)


The Angell homestead in Austonley, Yorkshire.....

I don't know if you have any Internet access in jail, but if you do, here is my website:

www.johndenugent.com

Many hope and believe I will yet do some great things.

I am currently hosting myself, here in exurban Pittsburgh, a political asylum applicant, Henrik Holappa of Finland, a WN comrade who had protested gang rapes by Somalis in Finland. He came as a tourist on July 11, 2008, three days before you came on July 14 (my birthday, BTW) but just as a tourist.

After three months he decided to apply for political asylum, and has a hearing on July 21st, 2009. The judge is a black woman and the prosecutor likewise, and in December the dark-skinned prosecutrix for the "Justice" Department glowered at me and Henrik with a very evil eye during the Philadelphia hearing, and asked questions so snide the judge became puzzled.

Here is my report on that December ordeal (as well as the wonderful history we saw in Philadelphia):

http://www.stormfront.org/forum/show...6&postcount=14

So HH's only hope is to fall in love with and genuinely marry an American girl. Otherwise he faces 4.5 year in prison in Finland for supposed racial incitement, supposedly defaming the honor of blacks (i.e. defaming the Somalian gang-rapist "community") and a ludicrous charge of copyright infringement – for sending a .jpeg image from a Finnish newspaper website as an email attachment to an American friend! (He should have gotten permission from the Jewspaper, doncha know.)

Please let me know that you got this letter and money order. The one hundred dollars in funds for these two money orders come via me but were donated by a fine American comrade and retired lawyer in upstate New York to you, two Brits in California, because you are our very brave comrades.


The white tribe looks after its own. If a white comrade is in trouble, anywhere in the world, we must help.

A lady comrade who has already put her money where her mouth is, a real-deal fighter, wrote me, inspired by my various money donations:

Quote:
I decided yesterday that I'm going to start tithing. I will give 10% of my income to revisionist causes. So far in February that is $1000 (I live on very little). Tomorrow I'll mail you two $50 checks, one for Vincent Reynouard and one for Horst Mahler and ask you to forward them to the proper address. Will this work out alright?

I think about all the money that is given to churches; what do they do with it besides keep the lid on the truth, for propriety's sake, so as not to offend anyone. There is so much money, but it's not going to the right places.

Thanks for inspiring me to give more. If it would help, you can use this letter to perhaps inspire others.
It does inspire others! These are heroes -- and they are our brothers and our sisters who are fighting for white survival and a future for white children.

I just spent two hours today for a white South African comrade who has been a big help to me and to Henrik.


Mark Singleton, former combat soldier, writer, blogger, policeman, WN from South Africa, "Mark from the Dark" (Continent).

We are becoming an Aryan Internationale. We'll show those Jews what solidarity is.

Oops! Sorry. Well, you know, my GRANDfather (not my dad), by the name of John Thomas Coldwell, came here to the States around 1907 (in effect, to New England from Old England) and I never saw the word once in print (before you). (I wondered if it was spelled "ghoul" )

Thanks for the spelling admonishment, brother!!

Yes, those comrades' site is Heretical Press!

RT (Russia Today)

Guest February 11, 2009, 4:40 Gerald Celente

(source: http://www.russiatoday.com/guests/detail/2114)


In 2009 we’re going to see the worst economic collapse ever, the ‘Greatest Depression’, says Gerald Celente, U.S. trend forecaster. He believes it’s going to be very violent in the U.S., including there being a tax revolt.

RT: The fragile U.S. economy has been met with bank bailouts and stimulus plans. So what’s to come in 2009? Joining me now to answer that question is Gerald Celente, founder and director of the Trends Research Institute. Thank you for joining me.

Gerald Celente: My pleasure.



RT: How would you define the economic trend that you have forecasted for 2009?

G.C.: We’re going to see the economic collapse the likes of which the world has never seen before. It’s not only in the United States; it’s going global. At the end of 2008 we saw Christmas retail sales: women’s apparel down 23%; home furnishings and electronics off 27%; luxury items down 35%. These are Depression Era collapses. We saw major bankruptcies, such as retailers Circuit City and Linens and Things. One bankruptcy after another. Then we saw store closings. Starbucks, Home D&D Power and down the line.

The question becomes who is going to take all of the vacant retail space? Who is going to rent it? The answer is - nobody. Now we look at the financial collapse in 2008, we saw the Merrill Lynch mob go under the bed and the Lehman boys went bankrupt. You saw bond companies, brokerage firms, and banks go belly up. Who is going to rent all the vacant commercial business space that they used to occupy? The answer is - nobody. The commercial real estate collapse that’s going to happen in 2009 is going to dwarf the residential real estate collapse.

RT: You use the Great Depression as an analogy, as a comparison. During the Great Depression unemployment was 25%. Now it has increased, it’s I think over 7.2. Is that number going to get much, much bigger?

G.C.: We have to look at the real number. There are two sets of books that the government keeps. When they measure up unemployment they don’t add in the people who are no longer looking for jobs because they have become discouraged since they cannot find employment after looking so long. And they don’t include part-time workers. When you put that number into it, the number is 13.7%. And that’s a government number. And this is just beginning. And again, current events form future trends.

What did we see? We saw in one day some 61,000 jobs evaporate off the map. You’re going to see Great Depression numbers. Because, as I mentioned, with this commercial real estate collapse, all of these retail stores closing, like Starbucks and Macy’s, you go down the line. You look not only at people who work for these places that no longer have jobs, but how about all the supportive industries - the advertising, the manufacturers, the products. They’re going to be laying off people as well. We’re going to see Great Depression numbers. In that effect, this is going to be worse than the Great Depression.

RT: What are we going to see happening to the society, to people’s day-to-day lives in terms of how they treat one another, how they behave, crime?

G.C.: When I say it’s going to be worse than the Great Depression, we call it the Greatest Depression. By the way, to be using 1930s models to get the U.S. out of this is really stupid. Back then when we first crashed most people didn’t have homes. There was no such thing as home equity loan. And back then, people didn’t have credit cards. The consumer wasn’t 14 trillion dollars in debt. We had a manufacturing base that built the world out of the Great Depression following World War Two. We no longer have that.

Now people are at the edge. They’re stressed out. Look, the Americans are the most depressed nation on the world already. They take more antidepressant drugs than anybody, plus the other kinds of drugs that they are taking. You’re going to see crime levels in America that are going to rival the third world. Welcome Mexico City. You’re going to start seeing people being kidnapped in this country like they do in other underdeveloped nations. So it’s going to be very violent in America.

RT: You’re not exaggerating?

G.C.: I’m not exaggerating, the facts are there. I have a saying: when people lose everything and they have nothing to lose, they lose it. You’re going to see people saying, off with their heads. There’s going to be another revolution in this country.

RT: When will this revolution that you have forecasted in your Trends journal happen and what will ignite it?

G.C.: It’s going to be a tax revolt. We’re going to start seeing a tax revolt in the United States. People are one job away from losing everything. We’re seeing more and more closures, people are being laid off. People are stretched to the limits. And what do they do in New York State? Some130 new taxes are being proposed, they’re raising sales taxes. There’s going to be a tax revolt in this country from property taxes first and school taxes second. That’s what we’re going to see start to happen.

RT: Do you feel people are not hopeful that Obama will make a difference?

G.C.: People are hopeful, they are desperate and they are fearful. And they’ll hang on to anything. Let’s look at the facts. A man of change, who did he bring into Washington? You know they say by their deeds you shall know them. Let’s look at his Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, former Robert Rubin from the Clinton administration, the former president of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Change? How about Larry Summers, the former Clinton Secretary of Treasury? I mean, I’ve been around a long time. I never remember a newly elected president bringing in basically the national security team from the last administration who happen to be from another party.

RT: Do you not think Obama’s different in any way?

G.C.: By their deeds you shall know them! If I bring in a baseball hitter that strikes out every time and I want him to play in the World Series is he going to hit the ball over the fence? They brought in Larry Summers, Timothy Geithner. Look at the crew. Look who they are. They’re strike out artists, every one of them. The only thing that they know how to do is not to get their finger nails dirty.

RT: There was a sentence in your report, the Trends Journal, that really caught my attention. You wrote: ‘On 9/11, those who listened to the authorities and returned to their offices went down with the towers.’ So are you saying that Americans should not be listening to the officials who are saying the Stimulus Plans are going to make everything better? Is that the analogy?

G.C.: Read my lips: No new taxes. I didn’t have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinski. I smoked but I didn’t inhale. Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction and ties to Al-Qaeda. Why would anybody believe these people?

RT: So what are Americans supposed to do if they’re not supposed to trust their leaders?

G.C.: Personally, I buy gold. And I’ve been talking about gold since the Trends Journal 2001. We peg the bottom and we said it would start going up at 275. Number two, you don’t spend a dime you don’t need to spend.

RT: What would be the good jobs to benefit from in this year?


G.C.: Anything having to do with health. Anything. It’s going to be a growth industry. And fortunately a lot of them are going to pay a lot of money in that field because a lot of that is going to be care for the elderly. And the other thing really is anything having to do with conservation engineers, anything that’s going to prove technologically sound and smart to save money and to make money.

RT: What about geopolitics, what trends are we going to see in terms of the relationships between the United States and the rest of the world?


G.C.: Well the rest of the world is very hopeful, using the word ‘hope’, with the Obama administration. And again, we’re going to have to see what transpires, but so far, and again, by their deeds you shall know them.

Obama, when he first started to run, he was going to be out of Iraq. As soon as he became president he was going to start bringing soldiers home. Now they won’t be out for 16 months and now their reports say they’re going to bring upwards of 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan. He was also talking about preventive strikes in Pakistan. So it really doesn’t look like it’s going to be much of a smoothing of geopolitical relations.

The one factor we’re looking at, at a time that could only be the worst time for it to happen, is what’s going on in the Middle East, in the Israel-Gaza war. Israel, as they said, they were trying to do as the reports have come out, if they attack Iran at any level, it will begin World War Three. Because if this war spreads beyond Gaza, it’s going to inflame the Middle East. It can cause an oil crisis as we saw in 1973, that’s what ended the Arab-Israeli war when they embargoed oil going into the U.S. That’s our major concern. We’re also seeing, and we’re going to wonder, if Obama continues with putting the so-called missile defense shield in Poland and in Czech Republic in Eastern Europe and if they keep pushing more and more into Georgia. If that keeps happening we’re going to see a reignition of the Cold War.

RT: You have been trend casting since 1980, more than two decades. How do you compile your information and why do you believe you’ve been so spot-on most of the time?

G.C.: Current events form future trends. You can see what’s going on. A great scholar said, “In today already walks tomorrow.” So we say current events form future trends. But when people look at the trends, they colour them or shade them with their own ideology, their own beliefs. It’s what they want, what they hope for, what they wish for.

I’m a political atheist. I look at things for the way they are, not the way I want them to be. I don’t colour them or try to change them because of an ideology. The other major factor that we do differently at Trends Research Institute than anywhere else is we look at over 300 different categories on a global basis. So we’re looking at economics, we’re looking at politics, we’re looking at changes in the family, we’re looking at geopolitics. We’re making connections between different fields continually.

RT: How can America get out of the situation?

G.C.: All you have to do is to look back to the 1990s when America entered into a recession. We had 7.2 unemployment rate in 1993. What got the U.S. out of the 1990s recession was something called the ‘internet revolution’ that had a productive capacity. Products were invented, designed, manufactured, marketed and serviced. So you’re asking about new jobs, ask about alternative energies. Anything that’s going to advance the U.S. into the 21st century in an intelligent way. That’s where the job opportunities are going to be.

RT: Gerald Celente, founder of the Trends Research Institute, thank you very much for taking time to speak with us.

G.C.: My pleasure.

To-day (12 March 2009) the Heretical Two’s asylum hearing proceeded before the U. S. Immigration Judge, Her Honour (I suspect that should be Honor!) Judge Rose Peters. Simon Sheppard and Steve Whittle (who were brought into court in handcuffs and leg irons, which, they confirmed, is standard procedure when asylum seekers are held in detention pending the hearing of their case, and not victimisation of themselves) presented their own cases, as their attorney, Bruce Leichty, had withdrawn from the case by leave of the Court, since he was not satisfied with the (substantial) retainer that he had received from friends of Simon and Steve. The U. S. government was represented by its attorney, Miss Myers. The Court heard evidence from Simon and Steve about their experiences at the hands of the British police and Crown Prosecution Service, and also from their English counsel, Adrian Davies, who gave evidence about the relevant provisions of English law (the Public Order Act 1986, as amended) and the English Court’s assertion of jurisdiction over web pages hosted on a server located in Torrance, California. The hearing was conducted in a very fair, courteous and thorough manner, though inevitably Simon and Steve were at some disadvantage, because they are not lawyers, and are moreover being held in prison, where they have had very limited facilities to prepare for the hearing. After a lengthy sitting, the Court adjourned to 1 p.m., West Coast time, on 24th March, when Simon and Steve will address the Court on their own behalf, and Miss Myers will make representations on behalf of the U. S. government. [Report ends]

To-day, Tuesday, 24 March, HHJ Peters heard closing arguments from Miss Myers, counsel for the U. S. government, and Messrs Sheppard and Whittle on their own behalf. At the conclusion of the argument, HHJ Peters reserved judgment, which she will hand down in writing in due course. Since the case of the Heretical Two involves unusual questions of fact and law and more documentary evidence than is usual in asylum hearings, the judge’s decision to reserve her judgment was not surprising. It will probably be delivered within 30 days. In the meanwhile, Messrs Sheppard and Whittle will remain in administrative detention at Santa Ana jail
