Internal files of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and the FBI recently leaked to Yahoo News reveal a nefarious scheme to utilize Satanism in dissident groups as a means to demoralize activists, splinter groups, and cause individuals to “disengage.”

The document, titled “The Order of Nine Angles Playing Influential Role Among Some RMVEs (Racially Motivated Violent Extremists),” claims the “Siege Network” (accelerationist fans of James Mason’s book Siege) on Telegram is a hub of Satanists belonging to a secret society called the Order of Nine Angles (O9A).

According to the analysts, O9A can be used as a tool for causing divisions and deradicalizing nationalists by morally repulsing them, “We assess that exposure to O9A’s doctrines may increase internal conflict and loss of members among already fractious RMVE groups. Many RMVEs believe that groups espousing Satanist beliefs are ideologically impure and that their pro-Satanism members seek to destabilize the group.”

American intelligence officials also appear to be closely monitoring right-wing internet squabbles and hoping to exploit them.

The FBI and NCTC refer specifically to a dispute between The Daily Stormer and AtomWaffen Division (AWD) as evidence of O9A’s effectiveness in causing distractions and people giving up, “Some AWD (AtomWaffen Division) members’ embracement of O9A’s violent extremist interpretation of Satanism created friction in the group, which has led to multiple members leaving AWD since 2018. AWD’s promotion of Satanism also led some prominent RMVEs, such as the founder of the RMVE website The Daily Stormer, to criticize AWD for allegedly allowing “satanic doomsday cultists” to infiltrate the group.”

It should be noted that while Andrew Anglin is referred to as a “racially motivated violent extremist” in the document, he has never been charged with a crime and his website openly disavows violence.

The report concludes that O9A is a useful instrument for causing “disengagement” through private entities that it does not name, “In addition, some RMVEs who have become disillusioned because of an RMVE group’s promotion of O9A’s violent extremist ideology may be candidates for interventions by non-law enforcement partners designed to facilitate their disengagement from terrorism-related activities.”


Two days ago it was revealed by the Daily Mail that the UK Home Office’s Research, Information and Communications Unit (RICU) had “infiltrated” the Order of the 9 Angles.

RICU is a Cold War-inspired black ops unit that is dedicated to covertly manipulating the public and destroying political opposition by inventing personal smears against targeted dissidents, creating elaborate honeypots and front groups, and steering discourse around contentious topics through propaganda disseminated via intelligence operatives posing as journalists.

The unit, brought back in 2007, cut its teeth with Muslims, but now it is being used against nationalists to dissuade them from engaging in political advocacy.

Both the FBI and British Home Office publicly claim they do not know who controls the supposed Nazi, Al-Qaeda collaborating terrorist Satanic group in question, nor how many members they have. Their only presence appears to be online, mostly on Telegram and the defunct forum “Fascist Forge.”

So far, the stateside “terror plots” blamed on O9A in the NCTC leaked document were driven entirely by undercover FBI agents and their informants, suggesting that O9A’s supposed spread is inorganic.

In the ongoing case against US soldier Ethan Melzer, the FBI’s criminal complaint claims Melzer conspired with other Nazi Satanists in a “Siege” themed chatroom to provide intelligence on his unit’s whereabouts to Al Qaeda. The supposed O9A member who talked him into the plot and organized contact with a fake Al Qaeda agent is exposed in the affidavit as a paid informant. Melzer is pleading not guilty in his case.

Jacob Kaderli, another young man referenced, was entrapped last year by undercover FBI agents in a convoluted terror plot the federal government devised and pressured him to partake in. Kaderli was a member of “The Base,” which itself was accidentally exposed as an FBI honeypot by Antifa doxers who identified Rinaldo Nazzaro, a former FBI operative and current private intelligence contractor, as its leader.

In Britain, most of those ensnared in government concocted Nazi-Satanist “terror” plots are teenagers. Last year, British courts sentenced an autistic boy to almost seven years in prison for being an O9A supporter and allegedly planning to blow up Synagogues and attack critical infrastructure. He was 14-years-old at the time of the supposed offense.

British Security Service’s Involvement In Combat 18

While the FBI’s COINTELPRO program in the 1960s is well-documented, the British government has engaged in similar intelligence operations more recently.

When the British National Party (BNP), under the leadership of John Tyndall, began making inroads in local elections during the early 1990s, a parallel and initially friendly organization, Combat 18, emerged around the same time.

C18, as it came to be known, was founded by a man named Charlie Sargeant with help from American Harold Covington.

Initially, Tyndall enjoyed the enthusiasm of C18 members, who promised to help defend against “antifa” groups that were attacking BNP events.

The relationship quickly soured when C18 began attacking the BNP for its parliamentary approach, which they saw as inferior to C18’s open avowal of terrorism — “direct action” — to achieve political ends. Later, C18 members launched a campaign of ruthless beatings of lone BNP members and became a source of gossip and slander against other nationalist leaders in the British scene.

In 1995, Tyndall wrote an editorial in the BNP’s newspaper Spearhead outlining C18’s irrational and violent war to destroy the BNP, despite both sharing similar goals and enemies. In it, he states his belief that C18 was being influenced by MI5 and the Special Branch, with help from the FBI in America, in a ploy to disrupt and discredit the British nationalist movement.

A year and a half later, C18 leader Charlie Sargeant murdered Christopher Castle during a power struggle for control of the group with Wilf Browning.

According to an investigative piece on the incident, Sargeant and Browning told police during their interrogations that they had friends in high places and wanted to speak to the Special Branch (a British counter-terrorism agency). They tried to use their service to the unit as a way to get out of trouble. Tyndall’s suspicions were confirmed: Sargeant and Browning were indeed state assets and had special license to commit crimes.

A chapter in researcher Larry O’Hara’s 1994 book Turning Up the Heat: Mi5 After the Cold War suggests that Combat 18 was partially organic, but then was taken over by MI5 agents and informants as both a counter-intelligence project to undermine and divide the BNP, as well as a honeypot to peel away the most violent outliers in the National Front and BNP with the intention of later entrapping them in bogus terror plots to justify their crackdowns.

As for C18’s other “founder,” Harold Covington, nationalists such as William Pierce have for decades suspected he was himself an FBI asset and agent provocateur. Covington was known for inventing lies from whole cloth about high profile nationalists in America and loudly broadcasting them, including that they were police informants, thieves, homosexuals, pedophiles, secret Jews, and other baseless gossip.

Left-wing activist Nick Martin filed a FOIA request to see the FBI’s files on Covington in December 2018, but the government continues to drag its feet in providing them according to Martin’s most recent update last month on MuckRock.

If Covington is confirmed to have been an intelligence operative, then MI5 and the FBI have recently collaborated in these nefarious conspiracies against nationalist dissidents.

COINTELPRO Is Alive and well

Looking at these documents, and the history of similar operations, it is likely that groups like O9A are little more than a psychological operation intended to demoralize activists and farm white “terrorists” they can parade for an eager, anti-white media.

What is certain is that both the FBI and RICU in the UK are being deployed to crush peaceful and legal political criticisms of the government and its policies.

To try and infuse Satanism, pedophilia and other forms of sadism into the cause of people wanting a say over their country is a tactic that governments reserve for foreign enemies. In 2021, the enemy is the people they govern.

    The only doomsday cult is the cult of Yahweh, and its Christian and Muslim revisions. The book of Isaiah very clearly anticipates Yahweh’s triumph on doomsday.

    If Satan is Yahweh’s adversary, then Satan would be devoted to peace and universal brotherhood. I refuse to use the term Satan because a) it is not originally a name and b) it is too tainted with evil meanings.

    But I will hail Lucifer because this name clearly reveals the adversary of YHWH to be a being of illumination, like Prometheus who brought fire to mankind, and Enki who saved humanity from the wrath of the demiurge.

    I do not believe YHWH is even real. He is an ignorant ideation that is resisted by the actual spiritual power of the universe, which is characterized by light and love.

  3. Franz says:

    COINTELPRO is part of the long-dead J. Edgar Hoover’s plan to improve Democracy and Security by infiltrating their enemies.

    Helpful to remember: The first enemies Hoover infiltrated was Commies in the 50s and Black Power organizations in the 60s. The right thought this was fabulous and even played Hoover’s greatest hits tapes at their parties. One was Martin Luther King’s soliloquy to one of the white gal dimwits in his group, telling her he’d kill himself if she didn’t sleep with him. Unfortunately she did, and he lived a few more years till a white guy dimwit shot King, immediately deifying him.

    Then Hoover died. Now the security state Hoover helped expand to insane levels is shooting in the other direction. The respectable right has responded by becoming zombies, leaving the snoops to do whatever they want.

    The right built the beast. As with the “defense” department that hasn’t defended any American in three generations but makes contractors and investors wealthy.

    Isabel Patterson once told Ayn Rand, way back in the 1930s, that the left is naturally collectivist but stays low and easily to swat down. But if you want a truly mad dictatorship, the right is always more reliable.

    Medicare and labor unions were pikers, snagging pennies here and there. The national security state has created a parasite state within-a-state, and all of us are the cattle they feed on. And they have no off button or expiration date.

    Right-wing anti-interventionists and purported “fifth columnists” were targets of Hoover in the period leading up to US entry into WW2. You have it backwards, the McCarthy period was often seen by anti-interventionists like John T. Flynn as just payback for what happened to the Old Right in 1939-41 and to some extent beyond:

    In the period immediately preceding America’s entry into World War II, one group became the FBI’s primary focus: the America First Committee (AFC). The AFC was formed in 1940 by Yale students who went on to prominence, including future President Gerald Ford and future Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart. The antiwar, anti-interventionist group boasted 800,000 members at its peak and exerted nationwide pressure against Roosevelt’s pro-Allied policies. Among AFC’s most prominent members were Charles Lindbergh, Socialist Party leader Norman Thomas, and Senators Burton K. Wheeler, David I. Walsh, and Gerald P. Nye. The voices of the great debate on America’s participation in World War II dominated society. No voice rang more loudly than Lindbergh’s.

    Charles observes, “Now that Lindbergh, already the most popular anti-interventionist, had joined the most influential and powerful anti-interventionist pressure group … providing Roosevelt with political intelligence or working to undermine this critic became increasingly more important to FBI officials.”

    Other prominent AFC members soon found themselves targeted by covert FBI activities as well. The surveillance techniques came to characterize Hoover’s leadership. The activities included wiretapping and trespassing illegally, using informants and anonymous accusers, monitoring personal correspondence, sharing information with foreign governments, bypassing Justice Department restrictions and civil liberties, launching tax or other government investigations, enforcing obscure laws selectively, investigating dissidents via grand juries, and disrupting meetings. (Note: The surveillance was conducted before invocation of the Espionage Act, which could only come into force after a declaration of war.) Of course, reports derived from such tactics were kept in secret files and often delivered to interested others as “blind memoranda”; these were memos without letterhead and with no indication of the sender or recipient.

    the fbi must stand for the federal bureau of instigation, as they only seem to capable of arresting and trying sting operations. when terrorists attacks do take place the perpetrators are usually someone they were tipped off to such as the nashville bomber, 9/11 skyjackers, and the tsarnaev brothers, in fact this seems to be sop in all western intelligence (7/7 bombers, bataclan attackers etc.) this all reeks of m k ultra and operation gladio. now we find out that the fbi had seth riches laptop since 2016 and hunter bidens for over a year but could figure out how to open them, apparently because… ahhhh, covid and all.

  7. Wielgus says:

    COINTELPRO was illegal, and was the product of FBI frustration that by the 1960s, the legal protections of Communists and others improved (at the height of the Red Scare, Communism was all but illegal, lawyers defending Communists could be arrested and jailed in this climate) but in the reaction against it they regained some rights, which frustrated Hoover.

  8. Fascinating article that confirms my existing suspicions.

    The founder, David Myatt, was supposedly a white nationalist in the 80s and 90s (involved in Combat18) before becoming a Muslim in the 2000s. Despite inciting terrorism, he has never been arrested.

  9. That’s why it’s so difficult for dissenters in Anglosphere to make progress.

    British intelligence also allegedly knew which buildings the Provisional IRA was planning to bomb through assets like ‘Stakeknife’.

    It’s not just nationalists. Years back a former undercover officer admitted that the London Metropolitan Police had been infiltrating left-wing political groups for more than 50 years.

  10. Anonymous[336] • Disclaimer says:

    It is true that almost every nationalist activist thought Covington was a federal informant. It has also been reported That the founder of The Base made his first public appearances on Covington’s website.

    It is also true that Ramzpaul made videos interviewing Covington in person and promoting him in 2014, such as this one:

    Video Link

  11. Back in the day, MI5 and military intelligence were known to infiltrate and steer Unionist and Nationalist militant groups in N. Ireland, not infrequently greenlighting bombings and other crimes against ordinary British civilians in order to protect their assets’ cover. Read Stakeknife: Britain’s Secret Agents in Ireland, by Greg Harkin and Ian Hurst. At one time, even the IRA’s own head of counter-intelligence was actually a deep-cover mole (codenamed ‘Stakeknife’) for the British government. Chilling …

  12. Wyatt says:

    There’s never a point to giving rights to communists and it is never a detriment to any civilization that oppresses them. They ruin entire nations so they can larp for a few years as revolutionaries, condemning millions to death by gunshot or a slow death through starvation before the whole thing falls into the hands of greater tyrants.

    The only trouble in oppressing communists is who gets to decide what’s a communist. If it’s expanded too broadly, decent people may get caught up in the dragnet, but disposing of genuine commies is never a bad thing.

    YHWH is not the same being as ‘God’, although the specific language gay troll uses here is ‘actual spiritual power’. gay troll also wrote that ‘Satan’ is a term, and if it refers to the Adversary of YHWH/Yahweh, it’s counterproductive: YHWH/Yahweh for gay troll is opposed to light and love and is an idealized form of a group’s the war and universal alienation, so its adversary would be light and love, and more. Notice gay troll uses conditionals, not declarations.

    Although some want the rest of us to accept this is another name for God, those who have met, or are, actual spiritual powers know there are many names for many lords. Even your name is a holy name, though you might not recognize yourself this way.

    YHWH (or in some versions, YHVH) in ancient Hebrew means “I Am That I Am” ….But is the Hebrew take on it “Yahweh”? Or Yahawah?” Or Jehova? Or Jah (it’s in Psalms 64 I think…Rastafarians use that name)? Or whatever? Which is why I call Him God…I need proof of whatever YHWH means…even modern Hebrew scholars get this stuff wrong. But anyone who says Satan (or Lucifer) exists but God does not makes absolutely no sense…evil, but not good? Yikes!

  18. Just another reason to NOT join any so-called “patriot” group or “militia” or far-right group…all are infiltrated by FBI or CIA or COINTEPRO or even leftists. And by the way, Soros, who funds far left groups like BLM and Antifa, just might be funding “Proud Boys” as well. If the Rothschilds could fund both sides in WW1 and WW2, then Soros could fund far left and far right groups as well. It is up to the individual or small family or friend-trustworthy group to defend the Bill of Rights, not some infiltrated
    “patriot” group. Example–the Republic of Texas standoff of 1997…. leader Rick McLaren was even warned by some Kansas militia that his group was infiltrated by the FBI…sure enough. And one of these infiltrators was his “Ambassador to the United States”!

  19. Yes, the problem is that the police/intel/company infiltrators are, usually, the “most active”, “most militant”, “most inventive”, “bravest” of the group and are frequently, as a result, elected to leading positions.

    An old problem. I read that in the latter 19th century the secretary of the Fenian Brotherhood in the USA, a man named Nagel, was a British agent who kept two copies of his membership list, one forwarded to the British. I suspect the other Fenians, genuine devotees of the cause, were too bored by secretarial work so they let the diligent Nagel get on with it.
    Generally the British had Irish rebel groups well infiltrated – I wonder why the Easter Rising caught them off guard? Perhaps WW1 divided their attention?
    In Stalag 17 the clever and apparently all-American POW Price is the German infiltrator.

  21. This is a really important, interesting article.

    Thanks for writing it.
