Waco Day 647

The intended entrapment operation at the Waco Twin Peaks on May 17, 2015 and the bloodbath and the coverup that followed continue to reverberate like a drum in a canyon on a moonless night in hell. An impeccably moral and devout young man named Patrick-Jim Harris was detained, questioned and expelled from Mexico over the […]

Hack Politician Loves Bikers

Connecticut state representative Antonio Guerrera (looking down above), a Democrat from Rocky Hill, is filled with love. He loves motorcyclists so much he wants to protect them from themselves. And he loves taxpayers so much he wants to protect them from the choices bikers make. And, he is wise. He is very much wiser than […]

Waco Day 639

The various criminal and civil cases associated with the Waco Twin Peaks bloodbath 639 days ago remain fossilized and nobody – certainly not the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas – gives a damn. It has been a year, eight months and 28 days since the illegal, mass arrests. The ACLU’s stated mission is “to […]

Trump On Asset Forfeiture

It is probably fair to say that most readers here enjoy President Trump’s candor and iconoclasm so much that they don’t care that his brain is made of hair. Maybe it is time to start caring. The subject of asset forfeiture came up yesterday during a love in with about half the National Sheriffs Association. […]

Profiling The 99 Percent

The phrase motorcycle profiling has appeared in the news at least three times in the last five days. The term came up twice in press coverage about a couple of photo opportunities in Austin, Texas over the weekend. The bikers were members of the now Bandidos-free Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents. They were there […]

Waco Biker Perversion Alleged

Yesterday, in an email sent to Waco, Texas television stations KCEN and KWTX, but apparently not to the Waco Tribune-Herald or any major market news outlet, prosecutors in the Twin Peaks case announced that the release of evidence vital to the criminal defense of the 154 men indicted so far will be “briefly delayed” while […]

While all the rest of the world was getting its drink on, the Waco Tribune-Herald, the Houston Chronicle, the Dallas News, the Fort Worth Star Telegram, the Guardian and very many other news outlets excitedly reported over the weekend that the tyrants who define what justice means in Waco estimate that […]

Bandidos Under Pressure

For most of the last 52 years the Bandidos Motorcycle Club has defended its right to remain silent with outsiders. All clubs have a rule that prohibits members from talking to reporters but the Bandidos have probably been more stubborn about it than most other clubs. “Because it’s nobody’s business,” Bandidos National President Bill “Big […]

Go Ahead, Make My Christmas

The truth may set you free but it is not free. Not here, at least. At least not at this end of here. The Aging Rebel is not a well known site but at least some of what you have been able to read here for free over the last eight years has been influential. […]

Here We Go Again

There is a quote, generally attributed to Albert Einstein – although Einstein never actually said it – that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
