    Alleged white supremacist accused of terrorism in Amtrak incident

    An armed Missouri man arrested for pulling the emergency brake on an Amtrak train in rural western Nebraska is allegedly a white supremacist who now faces a terrorism charge, according to newly unsealed court papers.

    Taylor Michael Wilson, 26, belongs to a neo-Nazi group, traveled to Charlottesville for alt-right rallies, and talked about "killing black people," his cousin told FBI agents, according to the affidavit filed in federal court.

    Authorities found an arsenal in a secret compartment behind his refrigerator, and white supremacy images and how-to guides to killing on his phone, the affidavit says.

    This is scary. I don't know if White people have a dialog among each other about each other, if so, now is the time! White men and boys are becoming very, very, frightening. There are so many attacks being done that gets ignored by the media. For instance, someone believed that pizza gate stuff and went to a pizza restaurant and shot it up because they thought that it was a sex trafficking ring ran by prominent democrats. I blame Bannon and that little shit Milo. This is scary, and dangerous and I don't see it getting better.

    The Charlottesville lawsuit that could take down the alt-right

    If Roberta Kaplan’s lawsuit succeeds, the instigators of the Charlottesville rally that injured 30 people and killed Heather Heyer will be held legally accountable. More broadly, the alt-right’s funding streams and structures will be exposed.

    The nine named plaintiffs, all of whom were injured during the rally, allege the defendants, 15 individuals who organized or participated in the rally, conspired to incite racial hatred and violence. If anyone can win the suit, it’s Kaplan, an all-star litigator on the left. She’s the attorney who argued the case that toppled the Defense of Marriage Act, United States v. Windsor.

    This legal challenge to the alt-right is based on a prior successful suit in which proponents of civil rights took on anti-abortion activists imperiling abortion providers.

    After the Charlottesville rally exploded into chaos, Ms. Kaplan started thinking of a lawsuit modeled on the one brought 20 years ago against the Nuremberg Files, a website where anti-abortion activists posted the names and addresses of doctors who performed abortions. That suit used civil conspiracy law to prove that the website had led to the murder of doctors, and resulted in a judgment of more than $100 million. Though the damages were eventually reduced, the site was taken down.

    Proving conspiracy can be tough, but it’s a tidy way to ensure the chief alt-right actors behind Heyer’s death and others’ injuries will be held to account.

    [T]o prove that a conspiracy existed, the plaintiffs’ lawyers will have to show that the leaders of the rally worked together in planning and encouraging racially motivated violence. Under the law, if a conspiracy is eventually established, all of its participants can be held accountable for the actions of its separate members.

    What’s already publicly available suggests Kaplan and co-counsel’s biggest allies may be the defendants themselves—or their past selves, given how openly they communicated their intent to inspire, commit, or support violence.

    [W]ell before the case was filed, a body of evidence was already public that at least seemed to suggest a conspiracy. In advance of the rally, several of its leaders blithely posted instructions for the protest on their social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter and a chatting application called Discord. On Aug. 10, the day before the march, someone leaked a trove of messages from Discord to the alternative media website Unicorn Riot, which ultimately published them online without naming the source.

    The defendants’ first-line defense is the First Amendment: they’d like to hide behind rights to free speech, association, and assembly. That’s as nonsensical as the Ocean’s Eleven crew asserting a First Amendment defense to fight conspiracy charges. This suit is not about what these defendants said but what they used words to do.

    Anticipating the possibility that their First Amendment argument falls apart, the defendants’ second argument appears to be more political than legal.

    The defendants — an array of neo-Nazis, white identitarians and old-line pro-Confederates — have ridiculed the charges as an act of “lawfare” maliciously intended to silence them and destroy them financially.

    “The goal here is to break us and keep us from taking to the streets,” said Jeff Schoep, the leader of the National Socialist Movement. “That should concern all Americans, no matter where you stand on the political spectrum.”

    Black man beaten in Charlottesville found not guilty of assaulting white supremacist


    A black man brutally beaten at last year’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville — and who was later charged with assaulting a white nationalist — was acquitted Friday.

    DeAndre Harris, 20, a former special education instructional assistant, was found not guilty by Charlottesville General District Court Judge Robert Downer Jr. on a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery against Harold Crews, a North Carolina lawyer and state chairman of the self-described white nationalist group League of the South. If Harris had been convicted, he would have faced up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine.

    The acquittal is a relief for Harris, who was beaten inside a parking garage next to the city’s police department on Aug. 12, 2017. He suffered a spinal injury and head lacerations that required 10 stitches.

    Two months later, his legal path took an unexpected turn when Crews filed a police report and persuaded a Charlottesville magistrate to issue an arrest warrant in October on a felony charge of unlawful wounding, which carries a five-year maximum sentence. The news was cheered online by supporters of white nationalism, which is focused on the goal of achieving a whites-only state.
    Online sleuths, led by Black Lives Matter activist and Intercept journalist Shaun King, helped track down the identities and whereabouts of several men police say assaulted Harris: Jacob Scott Goodwin of Arkansas; Daniel Borden of Ohio; Alex Michael Ramos of Georgia; and Tyler Watkins Davis of Florida. Trials are scheduled for late April and early May; Davis’s trial has not been set.

    Charlottesville Hate Marcher Elected by Republican Party

    An affiliate of a “pro-white” group who marched in Charlottesville last year was elected to a Republican Party post in Washington state last week, part of his campaign to take over the GOP for the alt-right.

    James Allsup, 22, attended the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where white supremacists chanted anti-Semitic slogans and one allegedly drove a car into a crowd, killing a protester and injuring more. Allsup was filmed marching with Identity Evropa, an anti-immigrant alt-right group. Fallout over the rally led to Allsup stepping down as president of the Washington State University College Republicans, a group he once boasted of taking over. Now he claims he’s on the way to taking over the local GOP.

    On June 2, Allsup posted a picture of a certificate on Facebook. “As of today I am officially an elected official in the state of Washington and Republican party,” he wrote. “Cool!”

    The piece of paper certified that Allsup was now a precinct committee officer for the Whitman County, Washington Republican Party. Allsup’s certificate declares that he was awarded the post after his candidacy remained uncontested for four days. The county’s auditor confirmed the certificate’s authenticity to The Daily Beast.

    Marine court-martialed for participation in violent Charlottesville rally

    A US Marine has been convicted in a court-martial and will be discharged for participating in a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year.
    Lance Cpl. Vasillios G. Pistolis was found guilty in a summary court-martial Monday of failure to obey an order or regulation and making a false statement, said 1st Lt. Samir J. Glenn-Roundtree of the 2nd Marine Logistics Group.


    Pistolis was sentenced to 28 days of confinement, was bumped down in rank to E-1, and lost two-thirds pay for a month, Glenn-Roundtree said. Pistolis will have seven days to request clemency. He will be processed for administrative separation, or discharge, Maj. Brian Block said.

    Charlottesville driver faces federal hate crime charges

    Federal hate crime charges were filed Wednesday against a man accused of plowing a car into a crowd of people protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing a woman and injuring dozens more.

    The Department of Justice announced that an indictment returned Wednesday charges 21-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. of Maumee, Ohio, with 30 crimes, including one count of a hate crime resulting in the death of Heather Heyer, and 28 other hate crimes involving an attempt to kill other people who were injured.

    “Last summer’s violence in Charlottesville cut short a promising young life and shocked the nation,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “Today’s indictment should send a clear message to every would-be criminal in America that we aggressively prosecute violent crimes of hate that threaten the core principles of our nation.”

    A man who was identified in a video assaulting an African-American man at the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year was fired from his contractor.

    Major defense contractor Northrop Grumman confirmed on Friday that Michael Miselis, a PhD student who had a government security clearance as part of his work as a systems engineer at the company, would no longer be working for the company.

    "The individual is no longer a Northrop Grumman employee," Northrop Grumman spokesman Tim Paynter told The Washington Post in reference to Miselis.

    The confirmation comes a day after the 29-year-old was seen in a video "pounding on" a black man during the rally last year. In the video, Miselis is seen shoving an African-American man to the ground and hitting him.

    Miselis, according a ProPublica-Frontline investigation published Thursday, is a member of the Rise Above Movement (RAM), a Southern California group identified by the Anti-Defamation League as a white supremacist group.

    Here's more about the crying pussy Nazi. I'm not sure what kind of pathetic sentence this is.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime...id=mailsignout

    A self-professed white nationalist involved in violence at last year’s rally in Charlottesville pleaded guilty to assault and battery Friday, prosecutors said.

    Christopher Cantwell was arrested after August’s “Unite the Right” rally. Cantwell, who was featured in a Vice news documentary about the demonstrations, became known as the “crying Nazi” after posting an emotional video when an warrant was issued for his arrest.

    On Friday, he pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and battery stemming from his dispersal of pepper spray near the University of Virginia rotunda on Aug. 11, the Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

    The 37-year-old from Keene, N.H., was sentenced to two concurrent terms of 12 months, with all but seven months suspended, freeing him from detention. However, he was required to leave Virginia within eight hours and not return for five years.

    He was also fined $250 after pleading guilty to violating the terms of his bond by discussing his victims on social media, according to the statement.

    The Virginia murder trial of a white nationalist rally participant accused of killing a woman during a counterprotest in Charlottesville in 2017, is scheduled to begin Monday.

    James Alex Fields Jr., 21, of Boone County, Kentucky, also is charged with federal hate crime charges in U.S. District Court that could end up as a death penalty case.

    Prosecutors say Fields killed one and injured dozens when he drove his car into a crowd of people protesting an Aug. 12, 2017, white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. Heather Heyer, 32, of Charlottesville was killed.

    Fields faces 10 charges and a maximum of a life sentence in Virginia.

    The jury trial in Charlottesville Circuit Court is scheduled to last for 18 days through Dec. 13, according to court records.

    Man charged in deadly Charlottesville car attack acted in self-defense, lawyer says as trial begins

    One of the lawyers for the 21-year-old Ohio man charged with murder in the death of a woman during a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last summer suggested James Alex Fields acted in self-defense when he drove his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counterprotesters.

    During opening statements Thursday in Field?s first-degree murder trial in Charlottesville Circuit Court, defense attorney John Hill said Fields told a police officer after the fatal crash that he had ?feared for his safety and was scared to death.?

    Prosecutors countered that Fields came to Charlottesville for the ?Unite the Right? rally full of anger and intentionally plowed his car into the crowd of people on 4th Street, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and seriously injuring several dozen others.

    ?James Alex Fields sat in his Challenger, idling, at a standstill, watching,? Assistant Commonwealth?s Attorney Nina-Alice Antony said in her opening statement. ?Suddenly there is a screech of the tires, and he drives into the crowd ? The defendant puts his car into reverse, backs away, with Heather Heyer?s blood and her flesh still on his car.?

    Prosecutors, who must prove premeditation on Fields? part, said jurors would see two Instagram posts from his account months before the crash, showing a car running into a crowd of people.

    ?His actions before, during, and after the crash will give insight into the mind of Mr. Fields,? Antony told jurors. As for his claim of self defense to a police officer immediately after the crash, the prosecutors said jurors would be shown the officer?s body-worn camera ?so you can judge his reaction,? and whether it?s credible, she said.

    Shortly before James Fields rammed his car into counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally, he had asked some of his fellow protesters out to lunch.

    Hayden Calhoun and his girlfriend declined, Calhoun testified Wednesday.

    Twenty minutes later, Fields plowed into the counterprotesters, killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring more than a dozen others.

    Those were some of the latest revelations from Fields' murder trial Wednesday. The 21-year-old is charged with first-degree murder for the death of Heather Heyer, who was protesting against last year's "Unite the Right" rally.

    Both the prosecution and defense agree that Fields drove into the crowd of counterprotesters. But while the prosecution believes Fields had malicious intent, the suspect's defense team said he feared the counterprotesters and acted in self-defense.

    If convicted, Fields could be sentenced to life in prison. He also faces eight other counts related to eight people injured in the crash, as well as one count of failing to stop at an accident involving a death.

    The defense called Calhoun to take the stand Wednesday. Calhoun said he and his girlfriend attended the rally on August 12, 2017, and spent part of the day with Fields, whom they had just met that day.

    Calhoun testified that Fields was calm and seemed tired.

    Under cross-examination, Calhoun testified that the only interactions he and Fields had with counterprotesters were verbal, not physical. Calhoun said counterprotesters didn't attack them or throw anything at them.

    Previously, Fields had described counterprotesters as "a violent mob of terrorists."

    I went on vacay back in December and missed the end of this.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/11/u...-sentence.html

    A jury recommended on Tuesday that a demonstrator who drove into a crowd of counterprotesters at last year’s white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., killing a woman, spend the rest of his life in prison.

    The recommendation came four days after the jury convicted the man, James Fields Jr., 21, of first-degree murder in the attack, which also injured nearly 40 other people. Mr. Fields was also convicted of nine other charges, including aggravated malicious wounding and leaving the scene of a fatal accident, for which the jury recommended a sentence of hundreds more years in prison.

    The jury’s action on Tuesday is not a final verdict. Under Virginia law, it serves as a recommendation to the judge, who will decide the sentence.
    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...-james-n946536

    A jury on Tuesday recommended life in prison plus 419 years for James Alex Fields Jr., convicted of killing Heather Heyer when he plowed his car into a group of counterprotesters last year at a "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    After deliberating for about four hours over two days, the jury reached a sentencing recommendation of life in prison, 70 years a piece for five malicious wounding charges, 20 for each of three malicious wounding charges, and nine years on one charge of leaving the scene of an accident. They also recommended $480,000 in fines.

    The judge accepted their recommendations, but will not formally sentence Fields until March, according to NBC affiliate WVIR.

    James Fields Jr., a neo-Nazi convicted of murder in a car attack on an anti-racism activist after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, pleaded guilty Wednesday to 29 federal hate crime charges.

    Under the terms of the agreement, one additional charge, which could have brought the death penalty, was dropped, according to The Daily Progress.

    Fields, of Maumee, Ohio, was convicted in December on state murder charges for killing Heather Heyer by driving his car into a crowd of counter protesters who were leaving the 2017 rally. More than 30 people were hurt in the attack.

    The plea deal on Wednesday means there will be no trial on federal charges. Fields had pleaded not guilty to the federal counts last year and could face a life sentence.

    At the hearing, Fields sat with hands folded in front of him for much of the time. He only spoke to respond repeatedly with a “yes, sir,” when U.S. District Judge Michael Urbanski asked him if he was pleading guilty knowingly and voluntarily. Urbanski scheduled sentencing for July 3.

    Hell No

    FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail shows James Alex Fields Jr. A sentencing hearing has been moved up for the self-avowed white supremacist convicted of federal hate crimes for plowing his car into a crowd of anti-racism protesters at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Virginia. Fields was originally scheduled to be sentenced July 3, 2019. A notice filed in court says the hearing has been moved to June 28. (Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail via AP, File)
    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A man convicted in a deadly car attack on a crowd of counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally in Virginia is asking a federal court for mercy and a punishment shorter than a life sentence.

    Attorneys for James Alex Fields Jr. said in a sentencing memo Friday that he does not deserve to spend the rest of his life in prison because of his young age, traumatic childhood and mental illness.

    Fields, 22, has previously pleaded guilty to 29 federal charges stemming from the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville in 2017. Prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty. One woman was killed and dozens were injured.

    Prosecutors said Friday that Fields has shown no remorse for his crimes and deserves a life sentence.

    His sentencing is June 28.

    Nearly two years after James A. Fields Jr. rammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters at a white-supremacist rally here, the avowed neo-Nazi and convicted murderer apologized in court Friday as a judge sentenced him to life in prison for 29 federal hate crimes.

    ?Every day I think about how things could have gone differently, and how I regret my actions,? he said in a packed courtroom. ?I am sorry.?

    Fields, 22, whose vehicular attack killed one woman and injured 35 other people, pleaded guilty to the 29 counts in April in a deal with prosecutors, who agreed to drop an additional charge that carries a possible death sentence. In a separate case stemming from the deadly incident, Fields was convicted of first-degree murder and other crimes in December by a Virginia jury that voted for a life term plus 419 years in state prison.

    His sentence in the state case is due to be imposed July 15, meaning Friday?s sentencing in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville was the first for Fields, an Ohio native with a years-long history of espousing racist and anti-Semitic views.

    At the ?Unite the Right? rally on Aug. 12, 2017, crowds of white supremacists chanting angry slogans clashed violently with counterprotesters for hours. Photos and video of the mayhem, including images of broken bodies propelled in the air by Fields?s speeding Dodge Challenger, were viewed worldwide, galvanizing public attention on emboldened ethno-fascists in the early months of the Trump administration.

    ?I would like to apologize for the hurt and loss I have caused,? Fields said in court, adding, ?I apologize to my mother for putting her through all this.?

    James A. Fields Jr. rammed his car into a crowd at the ?Unite the Right? rally on Aug. 12, 2017, killing one woman and injuring 35 other people. (Albermarle Regional Jail/via AP)

    In an hours-long sentencing hearing, Judge Michael Urbanski rejected a request for leniency from defense lawyers and imposed the life term sought by federal prosecutors.

    Fields, whose psychiatric disorders dating from early childhood were detailed in court during his state trial, did not deny he intentionally rammed his car into a group of counterprotesters, killing Heather D. Heyer, 32, a local law firm employee.

    In a sentencing memo filed in court by the U.S. attorney?s office in Charlottesville, prosecutor Christopher R. Kavanaugh called the attack ?domestic terrorism.?

    ?The defendant?s crimes were so horrendous, and the maiming of innocents so severe, that they outweigh any factors? that Fields might cite in seeking leniency, Kavanaugh wrote. ?This is particularly true in light of the fact that he has demonstrated that he feels no remorse for his actions and continues to espouse his hateful ideology.?

    The 50-page document quotes a recorded phone call by Fields from the Albemarle Regional Jail in Charlottesville on Dec. 7, 2017, almost four months after the rally, in which he refers to Susan Bro, Heyer?s mother. Bro has been outspoken since her daughter?s death, calling for healing and reconciliation in the community.

    ?She is a communist,? the memo quotes Fields as saying on the phone with his mother. ?An anti-white, liberal. . . . It?s not up for questioning. She?s the enemy.?

    ?Nobody is the enemy,? his mother replied.

    ?She is the enemy,? Fields insisted before cursing at his mother to stop questioning him.

    In the filing, Kavanaugh detailed Fields?s professed admiration for the militarism and racial purity doctrine of Nazi Germany ? a fascination that has been well documented over the past two years in court testimony and media reports. The memo offers new details, though, including about Fields?s trip to Germany with high school classmates.

    ?When the group visited the Dachau concentration camp, the defendant said, ?This is where the magic happened,? and then skipped happily down the train tracks that transported Jewish prisoners to the camp,? Kavanaugh wrote about a classmate?s recollection.

    ?When they visited the gas chambers . . . the defendant stated, ?It?s almost like you can still hear them screaming,? ? the memo says. Quoting a classmate who went on the trip, Kavanaugh said Fields was ?elated and happy? when he made the statement.

    At Fields?s state trial, a psychologist who reviewed thousands of pages of his school and mental-health records testified that Fields was found to be suffering from bipolar disorder and schizoid personality disorder as a child. He was housed in psychiatric facilities for three stretches before his 15th birthday, according to testimony.

    He was prone to angry, sometimes violent outbursts since before he could walk, and he was expelled from preschool because of his volatile behavior, the psychologist said.

    In a sentencing memo asking for a prison term of less than life, Fields?s lawyers cited an array of traumas and other trouble in his childhood. ?Fundamentally, James?s mental illness causes him to lose emotional and behavioral control in stressful situations,? they wrote.

    Before the Unite the Right rally, ?he had never attended a political event of any kind, or really any event involving a large crowd,? the defense memo says, adding that in the hours leading up to the car attack, Fields was anxious, sleep-deprived and dehydrated.

    ?James did not come to Charlottesville with any plan to commit an act of violence,? they wrote. ?In the space of only a few minutes, caught in circumstances he did not intend to create, he acted in an aggressive and impulsive manner consistent with his mental health history and his age.?


    They added: ?In a matter of seconds he caused irreparable harm for which there is no excuse. But this Court can understand his actions, without excusing them, as symptomatic of transient immaturity, and not consider them to be predictive of who he might be in the future with time and medication.?

    Neo-Nazi James Fields get life plus 419 years in state court for murder in Charlottesville

    James Alex Fields Jr., a neo-Nazi who rammed his car into counterprotesters of a “Unite the Right” rally in 2017, leaving one dead and dozens injured, was sentenced to life in prison plus 419 years in state court Monday.

    Judge Richard Moore upheld a Virginia jury's recommended sentence from December. He also imposed a fine of $480,000.

    Moore said he’d never been involved in a case, as an attorney or a judge, in which so many people were injured at one time by one person.

    “Today’s verdict is based on what you did,” Moore told Fields. “It was not a spur of the moment action.”

    The death penalty was off the table under the terms of a plea deal reached in March on his conviction for federal hate crimes.

    Fields, 22, was convicted of the murder of Heather Heyer in December.

    During Monday's session, victims made impact statements. Emotions ran high, and several victims sobbed and dabbed tears away with tissues. Star Peterson, who was injured in the attack, began her statement by addressing Fields.

    "Hello, scum,” she said. “You look like a coward now that you’re not behind the wheel of a car.”
    Star Peterson, who was injured in James Fields' car attack in Charlottesville in 2017, spoke outside the courthouse on July 15, 2019, where Fields was sentenced in state court to life. "We did not eliminate racism today. Charlottesville has some deep soul searching to do," she said.

    April Mu?iz, another victim, said her mental health was severely affected by Fields' crime. She said she switches from joy to terror in a split second since those were the emotions she experienced during the attack.

    "I wake up most nights screaming," she said.

    Susan Bro, Heyer's mother, said she hopes Fields never sees the light of day outside a prison again. She said she was a survivor and she will continue her work with the Heather Heyer Foundation, which provides scholarships to people passionate about social change.

    Fields, wearing a gray and white prison suit, twiddled his thumbs during the victim statements.

    'Crying Nazi' involved in 'Unite the Right' rally arrested by the FBI

    A New Hampshire man who was involved in the violent 2017 “Unite The Right” rally in Virginia was charged Thursday with threatening a person using the online messaging app Telegram, authorities said.

    Christopher Cantwell, 39, was taken into custody and indicted on two counts, extortion over interstate communications and threatening interstate communications, according to the FBI's Boston field office.

    The indictment alleges that Cantwell threatened a man to get the personal identifying information of a second man with whom he was feuding. He allegedly told the victim over Telegram that if he didn’t hand over the information he would attack his wife.

    “So if you don’t want me to come and f--- your wife in front of your kids, then you should make yourself scarce[.]," Cantwell texted the victim, the indictment says.

    At his initial court appearance Thursday afternoon, a New Hampshire federal judge ordered Cantwell held without bond pending a Jan. 28 detention hearing. Cantwell's lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment.

    Cantwell became one of the most familiar faces of the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville after he was featured in a Vice News documentary on the far-right that showed him chanting "Jews will not replace us."

    He pleaded guilty to assault after he was accused of using pepper spray against two counterprotesters during a torchlit march at the University of Virginia the night before the rally.

    The next day, one woman was killed and dozens were in
