How Long

The riding season is here for most of the country and it isn’t uncommon for local policemen to stop riders for the sole purpose of telling them to go home. This riding season may or may not put a smile on your face. But whether the bike basically stays in the garage or not, even […]

Oh No! More Covid-19!

Yeah, yeah. What the hell is the matter with Rebel? He is not a doctor and yet he keeps “spouting off” about the CoronaVirus.. As one proud member of the Iron Order explained to me the other day, “you should stick to motorcycles and stop pretending you are a doctor.” You probably deserve an explanation […]

Panhandling And Busking Again

Some months ago, I promised the readers of this site that that I would never ask for donations again. After years of being involved in the pernicious, secretive prosecutions of both the Bandidos and the Mongols I was finally able to come up for air and write about them. I assumed that people would want […]

Same Old Banana Peel

I suppose the good news is that the recent book Expect No Mercy is not number 200,000 on America’s big ist of best-selling books. The bad news is that it is actually, as of about three minutes ago, number 177,074. So much for talking truth to power and making a change and all that crap. […]

Buy The Book!

I had high hopes for a book called Expect No Mercy. The subtitle is Outlaws In America’s Waning. It is a thought piece. I think it is an often funny, insightful piece of work. If you did not already know, by reading this book you will learn that the police play the press like a […]

Expect No Mercy Excerpt

This is a story about deluded mythmakers; clueless judges; morally bankrupt prosecutors; bad lawyers; daydream believers; and crooked cops. This is a story about police propaganda and gutless reporting. This is a story about outlaws in America, particularly motorcycle outlaws, at the moment when the America that once was – the America of revolutionaries, moonshiners, […]

Your Enemies, My Enemies, Yeah Again

I am at the end of my rope again. The next book, Expect No Mercy is at about 85,000 words. That is down from a high of about 400,000 words. I have been at it for almost two years. I like it. I think you will probably like it too. More than you, I want […]

Where The Money Went

A reader who prefers to stay anonymous wrote: Question The Save the Patch movement that started back ten years ago and has been ongoing was started because the Mongols claimed it was going to cost a million dollars in legal fees to fight keep their patch. Many C.O.C.’s, clubs, individual patch-holders and citizens have made […]

Trolls Fear Me

Dear Oink, I think I am going to go ahead and publish this comment because it epitomizes the kind of crap I get every day from the sorts of people, like Darrin Kozlowski, I scare. I like to scare people like you. This came from a proxy server in Austria. That’s how brave this guy […]

Thirty Something Rolling Thunder

It is getting hard to see the point of Rolling Thunder, through the fog of self-congratulatory patriotism. It has always seemed like a Vietnam thing to me. It might very well outlive Artie Muller, the Fourth Infantry Division veteran who has made Rolling Thunder his life’s work but it is hard to anticipate what it […]

Memorial Day 2018

Memorial Day remains a black moment of grief just before the bright celebration of summer. Memorial Day should remind every American that we are a free and happy people because some free and happy boys set down their bats, balls and gloves to die for all the rest of us – in the Civil War, […]
