Hells Angels Sue Clinton And Napolitano

August 19, 2012

All Posts, Features, News

The Hells Angels Motorcycle Corporation of Westlake Village, California has filed an important lawsuit against Janet Napolitano, The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Alejandro Mayorkas who is the Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The case was filed last Thursday afternoon and has been assigned to the Honorable Gladys Kessler of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia. Kessler was appointed to the federal bench by President Bill Clinton in March 1994. She became a “senior,” or semi-retired, judge in 2007. She is a graduate of Cornell University and Harvard Law School and continues to serve on the Executive Committee of the American Bar Association Conference of Federal Trial Judges.

If it is allowed to proceed, this case may shed light on the accelerating symbiosis between the Global War on Terror and domestic policing in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and other countries. In all of these countries the “war on terror” has focused at least as much on social outsiders and discontents as on actual terrorists. HAMC v Napolitano et al. disputes the official United States foreign policy that declares “the Hells Angels, the Outlaws, Bandidos, and the Mongols” to be organized crime groups. This policy also asserts “that these groups operated as permanent organized criminal societies. Active membership in these groups could reasonably be considered to involve a permanent association with criminal activities….”

These and other allegations can be found in U.S. Department of State Foreign Affairs Manual Volume 9. You can read the relevant paragraphs here.   The pertinent law is section 212(a)(3)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). You can read that law here.

From The Suit

The suit complains that the Department of State and Homeland Security far exceeded the original intent of the Immigration and Nationality Act passed by Congress. The complaint filed Thursday afternoon states:

“Congress specifically excludes aliens who are members of terrorist organizations and specifically defines a “terrorist organization” in INA §212(a)(3)(B). Congress then specifically authorizes the Secretary to designate an organization a “terrorist organization” in accordance with INA §219 which sets forth specific requirements and procedures the Secretary must follow which include making certain findings of fact, providing notice of the proposed designation, publication of the designation in the Federal Register, and creating an administrative record.

“Congress also specifically provides a process to review and revoke the designation. INA §219. The process allows the designated organization to file a petition for revocation or, if within a five year period no review has taken place at the request of the organization, the Secretary shall review the designation to determine whether the designation should be revoked.

“If Congress had intended for all members of criminal organizations to be inadmissible, as the State Department has interpreted §212(a)(3)(A)(ii), it would have codified the same detailed procedures for designating a group a “criminal organization” and provided a mechanism for the group to challenge its designation.

“The plain language of §212(a)(3)(A) calls for a consular officer or the Attorney General to review each applicant on a case by case basis and draw a reasoned conclusion as to whether or not the individual seeks to enter the United States to engage in unlawful activity.

“The State Department’s regulation, with the approval of the Department of Homeland Security, contravenes the intent and plain language of Congressional legislation.

“Defendants’ exclusion of Plaintiff’s foreign members infringes on Plaintiff’s constitutional right to associate for the advancement of beliefs and ideas.

“Defendant’s exclusion of Plaintiff’s foreign members inhibits Plaintiff’s freedom of speech.

“By designating Plaintiff as a “criminal organization” without providing any avenue to challenge said designation, Defendants have deprived Plaintiff’s members of their liberty without due process.

Making Lists

Since at least April, agents working for the Department of Homeland Security, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been collecting the names and photographs of bikers who have attended Hells Angels events in Europe. This list building has been accomplished by stopping, photographing and copying the identity documents of attendees at road blocks outside these events. ATF, FBI and Homeland Security agents have also participated in multiple raids on the clubhouses of multiple motorcycle clubs in order seize and clandestinely distribute club membership lists. The intent of this data gathering is to deny otherwise, law abiding Europeans entry into the United States.

Similarly, membership lists, photographs and other documents seized from raids on clubhouses in the United States have been used to deny entry of law abiding Americans into Canada and other countries.

The American led, international war on motorcycle clubs is inseparable from the U.S. led Global War on Terror. That war simultaneously supports, protects and defends the heroin business in Afghanistan, the militarization of American police and the persecution of social discontents in putative democracies.

The Big, Secret Book

Over the last three months multiple informed sources speaking anonymously have referenced a 2,000 page manual written by a German law enforcement consultant named Manfred Seitner in 2007. The Aging Rebel has not seen a copy of this book. The book details steps to be taken and strategies that can be used in an international effort to outlaw motorcycle clubs.

One informed source claims that Seitner’s manual became the basis for something called “Operation Monitor.” Both the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are participants in Operation Monitor.

A source who claims to have read Steiner’s manual said the book contains, “…large sections on the importance of controlling, subverting and manipulating the media by financial or other means…. Squeezing advertising revenue is a key tactic here.”

Banning Izzy

The ban on entry into the United States has effected numerous, otherwise admirable citizens whose political views toward motorcycle clubs have been anonymously judged to be “incorrect.” One of them is a woman named Izzy Wildheart (photo above.) Izzy, who reads and occasionally comments on this site, is the driving force behind the Big House Crew, an organization that advocates for incarcerated Hells Angels. She has written on that site that, “There are thousands of people around the world who are suffering from injustice. We can’t save the world, but we can help support our own…our family.”

The Big House Crew does not advocate exclusively for Hells Angels. The site also contains petitions on behalf of “Leonard Peltier and Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox. If you read them they could do with your signatures. They are not club members but have certainly suffered from huge injustices. Please read them and make your minds up. Injustice is injustice which ever way you slice it and the more we fight injustice hopefully the more the Governments will take notice.” You can visit the Big House Crew website here.

In 2009, Izzy Wildheart was awarded The President’s Volunteer Service Award by Barack Obama. The award stated, “Your volunteer service demonstrates the kind of commitment…that moves America a step closer to its great promise.”

In July 2012. Izzy Wildheart was denied entrance into the United States because she advocates for members of the Hells Angels and because she lives with a Hells Angel.

“I was due to fly to New York state to visit a friend of mine who is married to a Native American for her daughter’s graduation party,” she said. “I had been granted an ESTA, a kind of Visa waver. I was met at Heathrow by Homeland Security who after a lot of fucking around, calling Washington’s Homeland Security who informed Heathrow my case needed to be dealt with here in London or I would be detained in New York. I am now officially under the Terrorist Act and Criminal Organization Act and banned from setting foot in the good old US of A for life, due to my association with the club. My mother is an American citizen, I have three sisters and a brother who live in the States and I have no criminal record, but ‘the doors are firmly shut’ to me.

Relief Sought

The suit filed Thursday in Washington seeks to end the kind of absurd guilt by association that has characterized federal law enforcement during the Obama Administration.

It specifically requests: “A judgment declaring that (the HAMC) is not a known criminal organization for purposes of the INA; a judgment declaring that, as a matter of statutory construction (the current regulation) should be rescinded as it misinterprets and violates the Administrative Procedure Act; alternatively, a judgment declaring that (the regulations) singly and together, violate the United States Constitution; the entry of a preliminary and permanent injunction preventing Defendants and their agents, representatives, successors and those acting in concert with them from enforcing the challenged provisions against the (HAMC) and its foreign members; and an award of costs and attorneys’ fees and such further and other relief as this Court deems appropriate.”

    Parris Island 1968 1st RTB Platoon 197 Senior DI SSGT Cruz Venegas, DI Sgt CC “and I’m no cherry” Apple and DI Sgt R. Tabb. No you never forget your DI’s.

    Four years later I am getting out, walking down one passageway where it intersects with another and I hear that feared and hated voice! There was now Gunny Venegas my former senior DI. He didn’t remember me, but we had lunch together and he congratulated me on getting home from Vietnam. And I thanked him for making it possible.

    Semper Fi

    I registrated for the draft during the Vietnam era in Monterey County, CA. Was classified 4-F due to my sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Nonetheless, developed an instantaneous rapport with real Vietnam Veterans. Maybe it was because we lost something of ourselves that we could never get back.

    I recall a new employee working at the Salz Tannery (defunct) in Santa Cruz. He was intelligent, observant, quiet, and kept to himself. I approached him after work and asked whether he was a Vietnam Veteran. He was surprised and wanted to know how I knew. Told him it was his demeanor, and we became friends after that. We were like guys in our 30s or 40s despite being in our early 20s. Those of you who served our country can recount some of your backgrounds in the military.

    Me, the best I can do is offer quotes from Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket (1987): If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war. But until that day you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human fucking beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shit! Because I am hard, you will not like me. But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you maggots understand that?

  3. Dawg Says:

    As a former cop, I applaud the HA for standing up for the freedoms that we all should hold dear. Blaming a group for the crimes of a few is just crazy. If this was the case then every member of Congress should be on that same list. I fought for our freedoms in the Marine Corps before becoming a cop. This is not the government that I want. I will continue to vote against tyranny and fight for the freedoms that our fore fathers had the common sense to put into our constitution.

  4. Junior Says:

    Kudos to HAMC for starting this suit, respects.

    Dawg: so how did that career of lying, creating crime where there was none and entrapping people serve you? How many fathers and husbands did you imprison for victimless crimes? I often wonder why those that became police didn’t opt for a career where they were actually productive members of society. Do you sleep well at night? -Junior

  5. Jim666 Says:

    @ Junior, lmao, hopfully ill be around when he comes back to answer you, cant wait to hear his “DawgS” answer, back to court in 2 days, to enter plea, still havnt met w/ lawyers yet, anyway, gonna check back in tomorrow to see if Dawg answers you,lol,

    Respects Jim666

  6. KK Says:

    Jim666: Best of luck in your situation. Regardless of what patch you wear or who you support, I never want to see anyone in prison.


  7. Junior Says:

    Headed to arraignment huh. In order to be arraigned the court must have jjurisdiction. Jurisdiction is ususally given to the court by the defendant when the defendant answers affirmatively that he understands the charges. 99% of defendants assist in their own prosecution. If you dont understand the charges then say you dont, but be prepared to explain in detail why you dont understand them. I wish you the best tomorrow,and remember you have the right to a Judge, you dont have to deal with an administrator, unless you’re sadistic & like assisting in your own prosecution. -Junior

  8. Pig Says:

    Hey Dawg, thanks for your service Devil Dog! I’m with you. I would love to see the 81’s win their case and hopefully set a precedent that will allow us all a little breathing room. Do you ride?

    Grumbler: How the hell do you get words to show up in italics like that? My favorite Gunny Hartman quote is: “Today, you people are no longer maggots. Today, you are Marines. You’re part of a brotherhood. From now on until the day you die, wherever you are, every Marine is your brother. Most of you will go to Vietnam. Some of you will not come back. But always remember this: Marines die. That’s what we’re here for. But the Marine Corps lives forever. And that means YOU live forever.” Words to live by for some of us.

    @Pig – Am ultizing HTML text formatting tags for italic and bold text: http://w3schools.com/html/html_formatting.asp

    Ronald Lee Ermey was superb as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman which isn’t altogether surprising as that was his actual rank in the Marine Corps. He did a great job with those TV commercials for Victory.

    Here’s another good quote from Full Metal Jacket.

    Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: How tall are you, private?
    Private Cowboy: Sir, five-foot-nine, sir.
    Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Five-foot-nine, I didn’t know they stacked shit that high!

  10. Jim666 Says:

  12. CrazyTrain Says:

    This goes out for all my devil dawgs! I don’t gossip, so pay close attention the first time! If you are under arrest because you were listened to via wiretapp. You are in luck. Although FISA says no warrant is needed that is only in wartime. Otherwise, they have SCLEA to protect them. make sure the dates are correct #1. If so, you have this thanks to me. Suppose you and I are on a cellphone call. We are both driving. Both of our lines have warrants to be wirretapped. As we talk, our convo(moves from tower to tower and say I go into roaming, so now I’m not on Sprint I’m onon verizon. Then, bc I have download google talk on my phone, I can access any available wifi, allowing me to spare any cell pho.e minutes I can. Wifi is wireless cable. Be ause a warrant did not and could .ot have specified all towers and or networks and or wifi/cable connections my phone call is protected under the cable communications act of 1984.

    My main Road Dog is going down for almost ten for the Feds, and I’m about a month behind him, still waiting to hear what they’re gonna lay on me, for doing EXACTLY that…associating with someone that had ties to a “criminal group”. Happens every day.

    And it will keep on happening as long as we let it.
    Any news on your side?

    to Wretched man…

    Sad to read your post. That’s fucked up. I now look at your screen name in a whole different light.

  16. Sieg Says:

    @WM; My partner got violated on his bond for a “defective taillight”, and is locked-down. Usual “no-contact” bullshit is in place, so I can’t get a kite to him, or take a call from him, but am getting info from other Brothers. Hope to hear tomorrow what his situation is, meantime we are trying to get all his tools and other non-perishable belongings together and stored for the duration. My date has been pushed back another month, so I get to wait some more. My Bro has a stack of priors, so I figure I’ll get maybe half of what he does, but with the Fed Beast, who the fuck knows?! Will post any meaningful updates as I get them.

    @BigV, a heartfelt thank you. Right now, lawyers, guns, and money, ya know?! Not much I can do but try to build-up a stash to use inside, or on the off chance I catch some luck and “only hafta pay a few zillion dollars and wear a bracelet. My lawyers are pushing hard for me minimalize whatever comes, but things don’t look to rosy just now.

    One foot in front of the other.

    Respects to all.

  17. Snow Says:

    Wishing and praying for the best outcome for you and your locked down brother, keep your head up and show em what a man looks like. Fuck the alphabet soup mother fuckers. Respect, Snow

  22. Chris Howard Says:

    The opprrssion shown by the – hu – (authoratian classes) are clearly misguided; Many bikers all over the wrold ascribe to the Red and White support club only because it’s the only one of it’s kind – for outlaws. Now that word ‘outlaw’ does not have the smae ring to it as ‘yesteraday’ Most bikers now will support any other team whatever race colour or creed’
    Would wrie more but I don’t think anybboy’s listening !
    Basically we fuck anything!

    OH YEAH!!
