Double Life Plus Twenty

The United States Department of Justice gloated after United States District Judge David Ezra ripped John Xavier Portillo’s beating heart from his chest yesterday.

Ezra held Portillo’s heart up and showed it to the law enforcement bureaucrats who are responsible for the Waco Twin Peaks Mass Murder more than three years ago. Portillo’s sacrifice meant they will stay safe.

The whole point of instigating a confrontation between the Cossacks Motorcycle Club and the Bandidos Motorcycle Club in Waco was to try to get the Bandidos to do something stupid. The Bandidos did not but John Portillo talked aboutthat possibility. So now all the world can be led to believe that it was all John Portillo’s fault.

The Department of Justice immediately issued a self-congratulatory press release that read, in part:

Government Lies

“In San Antonio today, a federal judge sentenced 59–year-old Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Organization National Vice President John Xavier Portillo to two consecutive life sentences, plus twenty years, in federal prison for racketeering and drug trafficking charges.

“That announcement was made today by United States Attorney John F. Bash, Western District of Texas; Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in Charge Will Glaspy, Houston Division; Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs, San Antonio Division; Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw; Austin Police Chief Brian Manley; San Antonio Police Chief William McManus; and Atascosa County Sheriff David A. Soward.

“In addition to the prison terms, Senior U.S. District Judge David A. Ezra ordered that Portillo forfeit to the Government his motorcycle, three firearms and $17,827.20 seized from a search of his residence in 2016.

“‘As I have said before, this prosecution shows that the Department of Justice has the tools to strip away a veneer of legitimate activity to expose and punish underlying criminal conduct. Others—and not only those involved in violent activity—should take note,’ stated United States Attorney John F. Bash.”

“Jurors found (Jeffrey) Pike and Portillo guilty of conspiring to conduct the affairs of a criminal organization through racketeering acts including directing, sanctioning, approving and permitting members of the Bandidos to commit murder, attempted murder, robbery, assault, intimidation, extortion and drug trafficking. Evidence during trial revealed that in 2006, Pike and Portillo ordered other Bandidos members to murder Anthony Benesh. At the time, Benesh was attempting to start a Texas Chapter of the Hells Angels in Austin. Members of the Bandidos warned Benesh to cease his activities and recruitment, which Benesh ignored. Several Bandidos members then murdered Benesh on March 18, 2006 outside an Austin restaurant to protect the power, reputation and territory of the Bandidos enterprise.

“Jurors also found that Portillo and others killed Robert Lara in January 2002 in Atascosa County as payback for killing Bandidos member Javier Negrete. Negrete, a member of the same local Bandidos chapter as Portillo at the time, was killed outside a San Antonio bar in October 2001.

“Jurors also found that Pike, Portillo and others conspired to murder and assault members and associates of the Cossacks Outlaw Motorcycle Organization (Cossacks). Testimony revealed that Portillo, with Pike’s approval, declared that the Bandidos were “at war” with the Cossacks. A number of violent acts were committed by the Bandidos around Texas in furtherance of this “war,” including in Fort Worth, Gordon, Odessa, Port Aransas, Crystal City and elsewhere.

“Testimony also revealed that Portillo and other members of the Bandidos were engaged in trafficking methamphetamine and cocaine and maintained an agreement with the Texas Mexican Mafia wherein Bandidos members were not required to pay the 10-percent “dime” to the Texas Mexican Mafia in exchange for permission to traffic narcotics.”

“The sentencing of Bandidos National Vice President Xavier Portillo is one more step in concluding a comprehensive investigation by DEA, FBI and our law enforcement partners into the leadership structure and criminal activities of the Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang,” said Will Glaspy, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration – Houston Division. “This investigation reflects law enforcements commitment to make sure communities across Texas are safe and prevent gang members involved in drug distribution and other criminal activity from establishing a foothold in our communities.”

“‘The sentencing rendered today is the result of the outstanding partnership between the FBI and all our law enforcement partners,’ said FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs. ‘This effort demonstrates our ongoing commitment to prevent gang violence and criminal activity from poisoning our communities. It also sends a clear message that we will relentlessly pursue and prosecute the leaders and members of these violent criminal enterprises.’

“‘Gang violence is a threat to the safety and security of Texas communities,’ said DPS Director Steven McCraw. ‘These are complex cases, but thanks to the hard work and collaboration between law enforcement authorities and prosecutors, these criminals are no longer free to prey on our communities.’”

“Pike, who faces up to life in federal prison, is scheduled to be sentenced at 9:00 a.m. on September 26, 2018.”

    Fuck the corrupt pigs and the gov agencies. Fuck the Cocksucks who ratted, lied and fucked up what was once a good thing in Waco (The CoC).

    @ Sandman

    The main reason street gangs are near impossible to infiltrate is because in order to “jump in” oft times a prerequisite to membership is the commission of a murder. Most Intel obtained on street gangs is through a rolled up and then turned current member.

    As Rebel says: “so-called street gangs are harder to prosecute.”
    To expand that a little: Street gangs don’t ride loud fancy motorcycles.
    They don’t wear colors. They don’t travel in large packs for all the public to see. If anything, they are very low-key, not very visible, and unlike most motorcycle clubs, they don’t have bylaws, regular meetings, nor do they do toy runs, or benefit runs.
    We, the great majority of motorcycle clubs, are VERY visible. We’re right out front where all can see us. We engage each other from time-to-time with violence, usually for one perceived slight or another. That draws attention to us, and “Gangland” just loves to produce TV showing the gaudy dress we have, the swagger, the tattoos, and loves that we strut our rowdy, ready-to-fight image. THAT sells. Just like Sutter uses us to further his theft of our lifestyle for attention and money on his farce of TV shows. LE loves that we’re so apparently easy to arrest, indict and prosecute. Somebody’s making his bones on the fate of Pike and Portillo….using these poor guys to step up the ladder.
    Until MC’s learn how to control their base impulses, get along with each other, and re-write the playbook on how to slide through life without calling attention to themselves (ourselves)….I don’t see much light at the end of this tunnel.
    Basically, we are our own worst enemy.

    Dear Sandmann,

    Motorcycle clubs, for a variety of reasons, are easier to prosecute. So called street gangs ae hard.

    This is the lay of the land folks. The government is coming after M/Cs. All M/Cs. We may care about colors but they don’t – government wants us all to be extinguished because we don’t fit into their view of society. They view us all the same, no matter the colors on our cuts.

    They pay CIs big $$ to infiltrate clubs and bait members into committing crimes; the whole time the CIs are immune from prosecution for the crimes they commit and are allowed to keep the profits. They gain leverage against a few members or ex-members (folks who for whatever reason don’t want to do long time) and that leverage causes them to testify (aka rat). Once they have enough criminal history, they can then use RICO to go after the club at large and all the sudden leadership is doing two life sentences plus 20.

    This is a pattern that is playing out all over the US and every major club is in the cross hairs of alphabet soup agencies. If you are in a major club, assume that it has been infiltrated by one or more CIs. Be wary of the member who always has extra $$ but no attributable source of income. Be especially wary if that member is enticing you or others to participate in illegal activities. But at the end of the day, those of us who choose to live this life and refuse to rat all may one day be paying the same price as Mr. Portillo.

    This is about the patch not about the alleged crime. It’s been going their way long enough, if the power clubs don’t get together and stick together to fight off this BS the FEDS will ultimately win the golden egg.

    Let me start by asking you to forgive my ignorance – I’m not a US citizen, so I basically have no idea how stuff is handled overseas.

    There is one point that contributors to this site have pointed out frequently but that never seems to be addressed by US law enforcement as decisively as the “war against MCs”:

    What about street gangs?

    No matter how this thing started, nowadays it seems that street gangs (bloods, crips, ms13, latin kings – you name them) are nothing but cancer that eats up the inner cities. Even from an outsider point of view, this seems to be much more of a threat to the general public than any motorcycle club – yet you never read about strikes against this type of organized crime. (Any gangbanger who refers to this as anything else but organized crime has been living under a rock since the 70s or is delusional.)

    If the feds put their (vast) resources into fighting them, they might be much more successful in achieving what their objective should be: Make the streets safer.

    Until then: “safe and protect” my ass.

    Respect to the deserving,

    They seem to have such an issue with 1% MC and put all this effort into taking them down yet the punk street gangs are left to pretty much do what they want.

  12. Iron Rider Says:

    What a bunch of bullshit. The histrionics from the Copsacks and the Justice department must have been pretty astounding considering this trial was in near secret. There are little hood rat ganbangers who have clipped multiple people who didnt get that kind of time same with mass murders, this is just a pure railroad job

    Just goes to show the Copsacks are no better than the Urine Odor, nothing but a bunch of rats. The fact that the Judge bought what the prosecution just shows us how much there is no impartiality and how the Judges will bend over for the prosecution and give it whatever whim it sees fit.

    I doubt this case was judged by its merits more, scare tactics and tales of Fantasy. What a travesty.

  13. Paladin Says:

    In September of 2010, the Feds started designating and targeting certain MCs as “Highly Prioritized Organized Crime Groups”. In 2016 the DOJ designated and defined OMCs as OMGs, the same as other criminal street gangs. When one controls the horizontal and the vertical, one can pretty much do what one wants with those that society has been indoctrinated to marginalize.

    It has been said by some that when the government goes after other organizations (Elks, Rotary, Masons, etc.) the backlash will cause a sweeping change in the way the DOJ views guilt by association. Unfortunately; the chances of the foregoing actually happening are hovering right at zero. These days; far too many people look to the government for everything, including their personal protection and physical well-being. People believe in the government because they lack the intestinal fortitude to believe in themselves. People rely on and accept government decisions because it is safer than relying on and being responsible for their own decisions.

    Those of us that ride, know to do so defensively. To do otherwise invites disaster. Even so, there are times when Allstste’s Mr. Mayhem strikes regardless. When sailing life’s uncertain seas, it is wise to chart one’s course in a defensive manner as well. Avoid the shipping (government) lanes. Heed the storm warnings and chart accordingly. The statements made by United States Attorney John F. Bash in Rebel’s story are such a warning.

    John Portillo is innocent of the charges he was found guilty of by a group scared, confused, and largely misinformed individuals.

    John was a real leader when the Bandits needed him the most. When he became National VP he was immediately targeted by the feds.

    Prisons are referred to as corrections and rehabilitation. This sentence corrects nothing, and Mr. Portillo and his family are being punitively attacked and assaulted by the federal government in direct contradiction of the very idea of corrections and rehabilitation.

    It is a sad day that our government has come to this. John was and would be a gainfully employed, polite, reasonable, and productive member of society. Instead he will be a number inside the prison industrial complex.

    John and his family: there are few people out there that genuinely do empathize with you, that cry for you, and that bleed for you.

    The 1%er Culture of today is like American Indian cultures in 1940’s & 50’s- disappearing, eroding, thoroughly strip mined of all value and that is the state of things. We will never be recognized as a species that needs protection, but in truth- we are Americans, we respect the values that made America great and we practice freedom as we best know how.

    although ive been told by others on this blog we are not fucked…

    i truly beleive we as a society have degraded to the point of no return…
    paint chips, blank ideas, narcs with major charges as factual adversarial testimony…
    some tool claiming to be an expert on something he knows nada about….
    why dont someone claim one of these fuck pigs had a indecent gimmick 30, 40, 50, fuck, even 2 generations ago ….
