This news from yesterday hits way too close to home. Unfortunately the Pacific Northwest is a nexus for White Supremacist Militias, and now an ‘Aryan Family’ Prison Drug Ring. In 1984 Robert Matthews founder of the ‘The Order’, made his fiery last last stand just a few miles my location here on Whidbey Island. Since then White Supremacist groups have made Robert Matthews into their martyr.
More than 1.9 million doses of fentanyl and over 230 pounds of methamphetamine seized; More than 225 guns and firearm parts taken off the streets
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Washington
Tacoma – Twenty-seven people were indicted by a grand jury for drug trafficking, and many of those in the indictment are tied to the “Aryan Family,” a white supremacist prison gang, announced U.S. Attorney Nick Brown. Twenty-four of the defendants have been arrested over the last five days in Washington and Arizona. The alleged leader of the drug trafficking organization, Jesse James Bailey, is also an influential member of the Aryan Family prison gang. Bailey is alleged to have trafficked huge amounts of fentanyl, methamphetamine, and other drugs in Washington, Idaho, and to Alaska. Bailey and many other defendants will have detention hearings in Tacoma today.
“While the dozen counts in this indictment do not detail every criminal moment in this conspiracy, it does provide one remarkable statistic: 48 firearms seized in this case even before last week’s takedown,” said U.S. Attorney Nick Brown. “On Wednesday we took another 177 guns off the street and additional kilos of fentanyl and meth. The level of danger is high when you have people connected to Aryan prison gangs spreading drugs and using guns in our community.”
“This operation was the culmination of a year and a half of great investigative work,” said Richard A. Collodi, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Seattle field office. “We were able to arrest over 20 subjects, some of whom are alleged to have operated this drug organization from prison, and also prevented vast quantities of dangerous drugs from being sold on our streets. I'm so proud of how the FBI, along with our federal, state, and local partners worked together to keep our community safe.”

A federal grand jury has indicted 27 people, many with ties to the “Aryan Family” white supremacist prison gang, for drug trafficking, prosecutors said Monday.
Two dozen of those indicted are Washington residents, and the rest are from Arizona, according to federal prosecutors. All but three of them have been arrested in the last five days, prosecutors said.
A coordinated arrest and search operation last Wednesday — involving 10 SWAT teams and more than 350 officers — yielded 177 guns, several kilograms of drugs and more than $330,000 in cash from 18 locations in Washington and Arizona.
The alleged group leader is accused of trafficking fentanyl, methamphetamine and other drugs into Washington, Idaho and Alaska, according to prosecutors.
No doubt Mr. Trump sees his terrorist attack on the Capitol on 1/6/21 as the high point of his miserable life. A couple thousand white supremacists were ready to kill, and potentially be killed on his behalf (like Ashley Babbitt was). That fed Trump’s Delusions of Grandeur as being "you favorite President
” like nothing else could. Trump made that very clear at his white supremacist hate fest in Waco
, and in the days preceding
Marginal Traitor Green has been raving about fentanyl as “weapons of mass destruction”, and blaming President Biden. But I’m sure she won’t mention her White Supremacist allies being involved in an Aryan prison gang selling millions of doses of fentanyl.
