Deliver Us From The Vagos

May 29, 2012

All Posts, News

History students, up through college, are commonly taught that the Viking raids in medieval Europe were so ferocious that priests invented a Latin prayer: A furore Normannorum libera nos, Domine, or in English, “Deliver us from the fury of the Northmen, dear God.” Educated people, particularly school teachers, routinely instruct students that the prayer was a fact. And of course it wasn’t.

There was no common prayer for deliverance from the Vikings. The prayer was invented at least a century after the violence ended. It was a way of describing how bad the Vikings raids must have been. And, right now something like that is happening to the Vagos, who wear a Norse god on their backs, and who must be a far greater threat to America and the world than their actual numbers would suggest.

One of Fox Television’s premier infotainment franchises, television station KTTV in Los Angeles, ran another “report” about the fury of the Vagos over the holiday weekend. This one, reported by a Peabody Award winner named Chris Blatchford, was titled “The Green Nation is On a Mission to Replace the Hells Angels Biker Gang.” It sounded more like an opening argument than a report.


Blatchford’s journalism recapitulates the bare facts of, and the ATF interpretation of, several violent episodes between the Vagos and the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in the last three years. Blatchford leads with the shootout in Sparks, Nevada last fall; follows with the brawl at Lazy Harry’s Sunshine Saloon in Bullhead City, Arizona in June 2009; and also mentions the gun battle between Vagos and Angels in Chino Valley, Arizona in August 2010. The incidents are sensational and amazing to people who worry all the time or who wish they were as dangerous as outlaw bikers whenever they are confronted by the frequent, petty humiliations of modern American life.

Fox in Los Angeles ran the two part series because those frightened and angry people are as fascinated by the violence that boils out of the outlaw world as they are by naked women. Fox went with the Vagos piece because the station might get in trouble if it encouraged its female “reporters” to actually strip. And, because the Federal Communications Commission doesn’t give a damn about lousy reporting.

Blatchford’s sources included the professional biker expert Jorge Gil Blanco. In recent years years, Gil Blanco has testified against the late Hells Angel Mark Guardado and against the combatants in Bullhead City. He was the go to source for most reporters after the Sparks shootout. Like most biker experts he is a nitwit. He tells Blatchford that all the friction between the two motorcycle clubs is the result of the Vagos recent growth and that the green motorcycle club is growing “exponentially.”

Blatchford also quotes, without attribution, Lake County, California Sheriff Frank Rivero. Rivero is also famous for being less bright than average. He started a panic last year when the Vagos had a party. Rivero imagined a great horde of Hells Angels must be coming to spoil that party and he mobilized an army of police to locate, engage and neutralize that phantom menace.

Quick Draw

Blatchford’s primary source is a former Vagos infiltrator named Charles “Quickdraw” Falco. Falco is the subject of outlaw biker authority Kerrie Droban’s next book titled Inside Out: My Life Undercover with the Vagos. Falco loathes the Vagos but not enough to remove his Vagos cut during television interviews.

He tells the world that the Vagos and the Angels are engaged in a “gang war” that resulted from the Vagos expansion into Arizona. “This is a real war that will never end,” he says.

“Quick draw says,” Blatchford reports, “it was that 2010 shootout that raised the stakes.”

“Now it’s life or death to them,” Falco explains. “All these gangs want to grow and spread and be the biggest gang in the valley…. Their goal is to be the biggest and the baddest.”

A Vegas “biker cop” named John Wooston adds that he is worried about the Vagos “war” with the Angels in California and Nevada because, “You’re talking about gang members who in some cases may be sociopaths, criminals, alpha dogs…. Any history they have whether it is in California, Arizona or anywhere else across the country will carry over here.”

Support Your Local Biker Expert

Then Falco explains why all frightened and angry Americans should support the outlaw biker experts’ holy work. “I predict within the next five years they will be the biggest biker gang in America.”

Blatchford punctuates his long piece by confiding, “An old time Vago biker tells us what’s going to feed and fuel Vago growth is even more blood.”

So forget about unemployment, the foreclosure crisis, the student loan crisis and all the other features of America’s economic recovery. Forget that. All that is nothing. What we really need to do is support the ATF and the FBI in their covert war to save us from the fury of the Vagos. Major market television has already begun to report how bad the Vagos must be.

And, there is probably a federal grand jury in Los Angeles considering the “exponentially” growing Vagos problem right now. What do you think the odds are that prosecutors already know that most of those jurors know the world mostly from what they see on Fox?

If you are someone who relies on other news sources you can see Blatchford’s report in the video below. The commercial that precedes it has nothing to do with this site.

    God deliver us from the age of the fucking “expert opinion”…..

  5. Grumbler Says:

    Although this is old news, so to speak, it is relevant as to what the Vagos and other patched MCs are experiencing with our corrupted law enforcement, hateful prosecution, and prejudiced justice system. I’d urge every single one of you to read it if you haven’t already.

    Just seems odd Blatchford would devote that much of his personal time and professional career chasing leads and writing reports / stories and give presentations about the underbelly of the social circus. I have lived long enough to learn that men don’t do anything without a drive or motivation. There is something more pushing him to do the “investigative” stories on the topics in his biography and be so passionate when doing them.

    I have also learned repeating the same act over and over expecting a different result is a form of insanity and that brilliant capable minds are actually wacked. Very odd fellow I believe there is more to know about him in his pursuit.

    Blatchford works his sources and most of his sources are in law enforcement. I am under the impression that he had sources within la eme and I know he was talking to Doc Cavazos for awhile. The first time I contacted Blatchford was to find out if “a reporter” picked up on a wiretap of Doc’s cell phone was Blatchford. Blatchford said it wasn’t.

    The ATF helps out reporters who tell the stories that the ATF wants told so Blatchford would have been recommended as an authority to various “gang investigators associations” and so on by the federales. Being presented to these groups as an authority enhances Blatchford’s credibility with police sources, his employer, publishers, agents and the public at large. He has been polite to me so I hesitate to call him a tool.

    I don’t usually mince words with “legitimate journalists.” I told Julien Sher, for example, that he was a “mouthpiece for the ATF.” Some other guys, like Doug Century who co-wrote Billy Queen’s book, piss me off very much less that Sher. Century is just a working writer who got a job and got paid for it. I think Blatchford is in that category, too. So, I’ll let it go by saying that the ATF doesn’t recommend me to anybody and that federal judges warn defendants in open court not to talk to me.

    I know who Blatchford is and how he works. And, I was more interested in what Chris Blatchford’s hatchet job on the Vagos means rather than just its content.

    Okay… So how many times a week does Blatchford have dinner and golf with Torres and Ciccone? There is a whole lot of similarities between these guys career wise to ignore very busy guy.

    Blatchford’s Bio

    “It is no wonder Chris Blatchford was once described in Daily Variety as the ‘highly lauded’ investigative reporter from KTTV Fox 11.

    He is the only Los Angeles television reporter in history to win a coveted Peabody Award for investigative journalism. Many consider the Peabody the Pulltizer Prize of broadcast journalism. Blatchford’s Peabody was won for his investigation into Mafia infiltration of MCA/Universal’s music and home video divisions. He has also uncovered multi-million dollar contract abuses in the aerospace industry, and exposed food stamp and welfare fraud.

    But he is most widely known for his work exposing the destruction and sorrow left behind by street gangs, prison gangs, and organized crime. His exposes on 18th Street, the Mexican Mafia, Aryan Brotherhood, Nazi Lowriders, Mexican and Colombian drug cartels, Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs, Russian and Asian organized crime — just to mention some — are being used nationwide as educational and training tools by schools, correctional institutions, law enforcement, and community groups.

    During his 26-years in Los Angeles, Blatchford has received 9 Emmy awards, 49 Emmy nominations, 14 RTNDA Golden Mikes, 2 Edward R. Murrow Awards, 9 Regional Associated Press awards, 10 Los Angeles Press Club awards, and numerous other honors.

    Although, he is best known for his work in the investigative area, he is arguably the only L.A. TV reporter to receive Emmys and Golden Mikes in all major categories of reporting, including: best investigative, best writing, best feature reporting, best documentary, best hard news reporting, and best news series.

    His work has received special commendations for excellence in reporting from the L.A. City Attorney’s Office (“Revolving Door Justice”), the L.A. County Rapid Transit Authority (“Tagger Wars”), L.A. Archdiocese Obscenity & Pornography Commission (L.A., the Mafia, and Pornography”) and the California Correctional Peace Officer’s Association (“Prison Gangs”).

    He has been a “keynote” speaker for: National Major Gang Task Force, International Latino Gang Investigators Association, International Outlaw Motorcycle Investigators Association, California Gang Task Force, Central Coast Gang Investigators Association, Oklahoma Gang Investigators Association, Colorado S.T.I.N.G., Arizona State Gang Task Force, New Mexico Gang Task Force, Los Angeles County Bureau of Investigation, Orange County Gang Investigators Association, San Diego County Gang Investigators Association, San Mateo County Gang Investigators Association, Southern California Gang Conference, California Youth Authority Training Academy, Know Gangs, and the Heartland Law Enforcement Training Institute. He is a frequent panelist on gang issues, including several sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice.”

    Interesting, whats the motivator? We all do things for a reason or purpose.

    potatoheads should stick to stuff like “Wild Rover”.The coolest theme song of all time,anyhow.Micks doing rap ain’t right.

    Only thing wrong with Moonshine Bandits is they lack “edge”:

  11. AVAGOVFFV Says:


    Don’t sweat the small shit man it’s all lies except for the part about hating rats,feds and cops.

    Take care thanks for the chuckle

    Viva Los Vagos

  12. Uesque Says:

    I wondered why they reminded me of the Kottonmouth Kings. Then I saw their record label. The secret to good parody, if it is parody, is the inability to determine if they’re serious or not.

  13. Dante Says:

    Erudite HB,

    If you get a chance check out the White Iron Band and Trampled By Turtles.


  14. Rebel Says:

    Dear Erudite Hillbilly,

    I am tickled so many people have written to express their contempt and loathing for the Moonshine Bandits. Last time I put up one of their videos nobody said shit. Now, if only they would appear as themselves on The Devils Ride.


  15. Caretaker Says:

    Erudite hillbilly-

  16. Vikingtrotter Says:

    Its almost like KTTV is trying to start a beef between the 2 MC’s for ratings.

  17. Erudite Hillbilly Says:

    I will admit though I clicked on the Moonshine Bandits video for the boobies. Mmmm… boobies.

  18. Erudite Hillbilly Says:

    I look at the Moonshine Bandits and that ilk as just doing what they can to capitalize on what’s presently popular (and therefore profitable.) But, being a country snob (and I don’t mean radio country,) I think country + rap = crap. But, I’m also a big alt-country fan (Lucero, Drive-By Truckers, Gourds, etc.) so I’m sure some see a mixing of hard-rock and country as an affront to their sensibilities. For a really interesting mixture of country and other genres, check out Hank III’s fusing of death metal and livestock auction calling. I can’t figure out what I think of it so far.

  19. Caretaker Says:

    That video was funny as hell… Hillbilly gangstas? I’m still laughing…

  20. Rebel Says:

    Dear Uesque,

    I knew somebody would love the Moonshine bandits.


  21. Rebel Says:

    Dear BigV,

    Indeed. You are exactly right. That is why, as a nation, we must spend $1 Billion a year or whatever we spend to combat America’s “gang menace.” Gangs do not include politicians or cops, of course.


  22. Rebel Says:

    Dear Caretaker,

    Just trying to shake up the music videos. I kind of like the Moonshine Bandits. I think they are stupid. I often strongly identify with stupid people.


  23. Erudite Hillbilly Says:

    Is support waning for the failed “War on Drugs” or the manufactured “War on Terror”? (After all, you are 8 times more likely to be killed by a cop than a terrorist*.) I was wondering what the next manufactured bogeyman would be to convince the sheep to give up more of their rights. Apparently the latest bogeyman is the potential possibility of marauding motorcycle clubs. So now the cry at the budgetary meetings is probably “hurry, develop more special Federal funding programs to militarize our local police even more to deal with this potential threat”. Nothing to worry about though; it’s not like those militarized police forces could ever be used to control the “rest” of the the population, right?

    *2004 National Safety Council Estimates. I bet our chances have increased over the last eight years though.

  24. Caretaker Says:

    Moonshine bandits… Dear god… Someone please tell me they were trying to be funny? That was a joke,right?


  25. BigV Says:

    Dear AVAGO:

    According to Keith Ball there aren’t any more Vagos in NC, but having seen that expert special report the dreamy and Peabody AWARDED Christopher Blatchford, I am currently huddled in a mass in a small closet hiding from any Vagos who may be lurking near by. Can you call your boys in the nearest state and make sure they won’t beat BigV up ? I have business cards and everything that say: “BigV(End Line 1) (Begin Line 2)Ex-PhD Candidate, Poster” (End Line 2). So I can verify it’s really me. If it doesn’t rain anymore tomorrow I would like to go out and ride but with those Vagos possibly around, I am afraid of what might happen. They might menace and intimidate me. They might cast odd grins toward my person whilst cocking their eyebrows. The thoughts of these things happening mortify me, so I just want to make sure I’ll be alright. If you’ll give me your word as a scout that I will be safe- I may just leave the darkness of this closet.

    -Signed your average American media consumer.

    (the above post was just satire. I swear. Really.)

  26. Uesque Says:

    I stopped at the Moonshine Bandits video and never made it through the article. Gotta love creative patriotism.

  27. AVAGOVFFV Says:

    Oh and as info to avoid another Club from bringing a rat or agent into their home the asshole Charles Falco aka “quickdraw” has a striking resemblance to a piece of shit by the name of Charles Ashley Wyatt who testified along with another rat as did Koz in our Brothers trials.

    Fuck You Ashley Charles Wyatt or Falco whatever the hell your going by now.

    Viva Los Vagos

  28. AVAGOVFFV Says:


    Okay cut the shit where is Ciccone, Koz, De Angleo, Carr and Torres hiding in this media blitz? Fuck um all along with the snitches trying save their ass by lying.

    Propaganda bull shit as usual lions, tigers and bears oh my.

    Viva Los Vagos

  29. YYZ Skinhead Says:

    I saw the first half of that propaganda hackjob. I wondered as well why the ra…sni…infiltrator was wearing a Vagos patch if he hated them so.

  30. Phuquehed Says:

    Blatchford – “I’m a fucktard and I have a hundred and eleventy ‘experts’ to back me up!”

    Again, this is proof there is no god and that I did the second best thing in my whole life by getting rid of the fucking TV a year+ ago.

  31. swampy Says:

    Looks like some people stand to get a little monetary gain by stirring the pot. Why does that PRICK Falco remind me of a Jay Dobyns in more ways than one. Kerrie Droban needs to be medicated and institutionalised along with that retard Lake County Sheriff, Frank Rivero. Chris Blatchford can stick that Peabody Award up his ass – I hope he has more than one. I wish all the best for the VAGOS M.C. during this shit storm that’s being created around them.

  32. 10Gauge Says:

    Fuckin Joke…what kind of journalism is this? Looks like a bad “True” crime show…disgusting

  33. RVN69 Says:

    UHHH, aren’t news reports supposed to be based on facts, not specutlation????

    “I am not an angel, nor am I the devil, I am the bastard stepchild of both.”

    All I can say here is “seriously?” Someone needs to get a life…
