A former servicemen who has been subjected to years of death threats from Antifa groups and aggressive harassment from the FBI has decided to speak out about the terror and mental anguish he and his family have been forced to endure for two and a half years.

North Carolina based Vasillios Pistolis first made headlines in 2018, when far left activists “doxed” (revealing a private citizen’s personal information to hurt them) him as an active-duty Marine who protested in defense of the Robert E. Lee Statue at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville on August 12th, 2017.

Aside from being discharged from the Marines Corps for engaging in political advocacy, Pistolis has not been charged with any crimes.

When It Began

Shortly after a deceptively edited hit piece by left-wing NGO Pro Publica that featured Pistolis aired during the summer of 2018, he was plucked out in the middle of a training exercise by his superiors.

Then the nightmare began. “My superior officers were all in the dark about what was going on. They took me to a special office, where NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) agents were waiting. I was grilled for hours about my political beliefs and whether I had attended the rally in Charlottesville. My laptop and phone were confiscated pending the investigation.”

Under intense pressure from politicians and far left journalists, the Marine Corps moved quickly to get Pistolis out and turn him into a scapegoat. Pistolis was subsequently dragged before a military court for violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. He was charged with disobeying a lawful order by participating in an “extremist rally.”

The rule is loosely defined and the punishment is steep if you lose at trial, so Pistolis decided to take a plea bargain that gave him 28 days in the Brig (military jail), which he served before being discharged.

Anarchist Death Threats and Losing His Gun Rights With No Due Process

After leaving the Marines and finishing his punishment, Pistolis believed the ordeal was over. Then he and his family began receiving a barrage of threats.

“After I was doxed by Pro Publica, I began keeping tabs on various antifa and communist paramilitary groups in my state. I was shocked to see how openly and brazenly they would conduct “intelligence” on my whereabouts, my family members, where I worked, and they would publicly express intent to assault and kill me.”

The conditions of Pistolis’ discharge do not ban him from owning a firearm. When the threats refused to die down, Pistolis sought a permit for a handgun for personal defense.

The county Sheriff turned him down, citing his political beliefs twice, once in 2018 and again in 2020, as the sole reason under a rarely used and likely unconstitutional North Carolina statute.

“I couldn’t believe it. The people claiming my presence at the Lee statue protest made me a terrorist threat were actively making terrorist threats against me. The police were completely uninterested in my well-being and I felt I had no choice but to buy a gun to protect myself and my family.”

Pistolis provided an email dated May 2020 from his Sheriff’s office, which oversees handgun permit requests, showing that he was denied the right to self-defense based solely on the fact that he had “participated in white supremacy rallies in Virginia and Tennessee, with reports indicating that Applicant participated in an assaulting individuals at said rallies.”

Pistolis has not been criminally charged or credibly accused of any unlawful assaults, and both rallies in question were legally permitted and First Amendment protected. The decision was made arbitrarily by the Sheriff based on his perception of the applicant’s beliefs and slanted media lies.

“I thought about fighting this attack on my rights in court, but the legal expenses and the fact that it expires in 5 years both deterred me. I don’t want to assume the worst, but in the context of this application, it’s likely the Sheriff’s office doesn’t like my political beliefs and is fine with antifa members hurting me or my loved ones.”

FBI Tormenting His Family Members

Ever since Pistolis was discharged from the Marines, he has focused on work. Aside from almost regular death threats, things have been quiet. He briefly attempted to retrieve his confiscated laptop and phone from NCIS, who told him they gave it to a detective in his county, who told him he gave it to the FBI, who told him they gave it to NCIS. He doesn’t expect to ever see his property again.

More than three years after the Charlottesville rally, Pistolis has yet to be charged for any criminal activity associated with it or in general, either locally or federally. Yet in recent months, the FBI has been engaging in aggravated harassment and stalking.

“My home was first visited by them in August. The FBI agents dropped in when I wasn’t home and tried to scare my parents, who are older, into getting me to talk to them. I know my rights and I know how the FBI has been pursuing political dissidents on the right lately, so obviously that is off the table” he told National Justice.

It has been widely noted that the FBI has become more aggressive in their entrapment tactics as of late, likely in hopes of creating media spectacles of “white supremacist and far right domestic terrorists” to aid the Bureau’s preferred candidate (Joe Biden) as the 2020 election approaches.

“Just this month, the FBI has visited my home twice. All three visits were timed for when I wasn’t even home. They have been trying to get my parents to talk to them even though I am an adult man and have already made it clear I do not want any contact with them. They have told my parents that they ‘only want to close’ my case and ‘help me,’ but will not specify any details of what I am even accused of.”

Pistolis told us that FBI agents promised his parents they would give back the electronics taken from him years ago if he just talked to them, again, without specifying about what. Every visit, they have a new story for why they are there, Pistolis said. At this point, he is being forced to retain an attorney in hopes of leaving him and his family in peace.

The FBI claims it does not police political ideology, but this is radically contradicted by the facts on the ground. Even Attorney General William Barr, on paper in charge of the Department of Justice, last month decried the hyper-politicization of the “permanent bureaucracy” for engaging in “head hunting” against politically expedient targets.

The media concocted moral panic about “white supremacists” and Trump supporting far right “terrorists” has incentivized prosecutors and FBI agents seeking publicity and promotions to burn massive amounts of taxpayer resources trying to gin up ways to prosecute individuals who aren’t doing anything wrong.

Revolver News has reported that the lead agent who organized more than four FBI employees to entrap over a dozen libertarians in the now infamous Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping “conspiracy” was immediately given a promotion out of Detroit and to the prestigious and well compensated DC Field office.

As for Pistolis, he ended the interview with a simple statement, “I’m being hounded just because some left wing extremists have friends in the government and they don’t like what they think my political beliefs are. While our civil rights have been eroded across the board, I didn’t think the right to just live my life as a law abiding citizen would be one of them.”

    There’s been reports that Hussein Obama replaced a large number of the US army officer core with compliant Marxist stooges. And then there were Bush junior and Clinton before him. Both of whom were also wittless Globalist shills.

    Seems they also “overhauled” the FBI.

    The more stories like this become public, the more the US takes on the milieu of Russia circa 1917.

    The big question is: Will Trump, if he gets re-elected, exorcise Wastington and the financial houses of New York. Or will he be just a slight hindrance to them for another four years?

    As for the last four years, why has not Facebook, Twitter, et al, been put back in their boxes?

    Trump did lots of financial business with the Hegemon in New York. Will he need to protect his reputation with them in order that the successor to his business empire can also easily avail of the Hegemon’s capital?

    The Hegemon is like a cancer. To put it in remission for another four years only will delay, not stop, the destruction of the US. This disease needs to be cut out entirely.

    FBI’s been rotten since long before Obama but the rot accelerated in those eight years and they’ve been increasingly emboldened to let the mask slip as time goes by.

    A fish rots from the head down and Hoover was crooked from the start.

    As for Trump, check out these stories – long story short, same as Hoover – a shabbos front-goy for Chosen subversion. He’s been an active collaborator and enthusiastic co-conspirator with the Kushners and the Jignat Chabad faction of American Ashkepathy since he was a kid, and his father before him. More relevant links at those sites, too.

    They own Trump by virtue of shared dirty business, a financial version of Epsteining, if nothing else, but he’s a happy pig in the same mud, not merely a victim.

    A new article at NYRB that is mainly about Rise Above Movement repeats the lie that the James Fields auto accident was part of a terrorist plot. It also rather strongly implies that persons with the wrong political views should be denied the right to carry firearms . The article is fear porn completely lacking in political analysis.

    The title of the article says it all. Anarcho-Tyranny in action. The lawless are deified while the lawful are demonized.

    But the article indirectly directs attention to why the hostile elite will fail. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, because it’s worth repeating. The hostile elite is incompetent at social management. And I mean seriously incompetent.

    That’s not to underestimate the damage they can do. Far from it. In fact, that was the mistake many of those who participated at the UTR rally made. I say, “many” and not all, because it was obvious that not everyone on that side of the rally was operating in good faith, poisoned faith maybe, but not good faith. But that wasn’t the only mistake the participants made.

    If this rally was organized in support of our basic freedoms and the protection of our traditions and history, why was it called UTR? Why does the Right insist it has a monopoly on freedom and White interests? Why does the Right react exactly like the Left when challenged on these points, ie; by flying off the handle with a knee jerk reaction? And, finally, how could they not see they were being set up? Apparently, it’s not just the Left that suffers from an incredible inability to admit when they’re wrong.

    My point is, the Right-Left paradigm is not just wrong, it’s dying, and dying a miserable death.

    The implicit assumption of The Enlightenment, from which both the Right and Left emerged, is that the adaptation of the organism to the environment is properly the basis of all intellectual and moral decisions. In other words, the structure of the mind is identical with the structure of nature.

    What is happening now is simply symptomatic of the total collapse of this metaphysic, or explanatory system. Nothing can hold it together, except force. And when force fails, as it inevitably does, there is no alternative. That is what is happening now. The sooner we face it and respond accordingly the better.

    But to even begin to do that we would have to accept the fact that the Right and Left are intellectually and morally bankrupt.

    And replace it with what?

    That’s arguably the most important question in the world. And, though this isn’t the place to launch into an in-depth answer, it’s worth saying a few words on the matter.

    Whatever one’s answer will be, all answers will have one thing in common. They’ll all be explanations. And even the best explanation is just that, an explanation. But, that’s not to say that some explanations aren’t better than others.

    So, what explanations work best?

    Those that are open-ended and unresolved in both directions, theory and data. The ones that don’t work are the ones closed from both ends. That’s the top-down method. The preferred method of the hostile elite.

    This is exactly why, as I’ve said, the best they’ll ever manage is a Pyrrhic Victory. Because the social institutions that the eilte control, the social institutions that make up our culture and civilization are knowledge-dependent.

    Information has to be converted into knowledge and flow throughout the body politic, as it were, of that social institution. If that knowledge is not permitted to flow, the effect is like a hardening of the arteries.

    As we’re witnessing right now, the consequences are immense. Consequences such as cultural impoverishment and social incoherence, both the result of explanatory collpase, since both are entirely dependent on explanations for their survival.

    Speaking of which, it should never be assumed for a second that the human race is going to be a successful species. We haven’t even been biologically tested, and we could fail that test. In fact, it looks like we’re failing it now.

    From this perspective, the hostile elite, or whatever one wants to called them, represent the single greatest threat to the human race. It very well may be. To turn the words on Noel Ignatiev and the elite he worked for

    Treason against The Hostile Elite is loyalty to humanity.

    Quite right Bill.
    It doesn’t matter whether you think you are “respectable”, that you “play by the rules”. All police are the instruments of their various executive governing bodies. That is, they will –to a greater or lesser degree — have political objectives. Should one of the “decent” somehow interfere (however inadvertently) with such objectives they may well find themselves in trouble.

    From Wikipedia’s entry on the origins of the FBI

    Background

    In 1896, the National Bureau of Criminal Identification was founded, which provided agencies across the country with information to identify known criminals. The 1901 assassination of President William McKinley created a perception that the United States was under threat from anarchists. The Departments of Justice and Labor had been keeping records on anarchists for years, but President Theodore Roosevelt wanted more power to monitor them.[12][page needed]

    The Justice Department had been tasked with the regulation of interstate commerce since 1887, though it lacked the staff to do so. It had made little effort to relieve its staff shortage until the Oregon land fraud scandal at the turn of the 20th century. President Roosevelt instructed Attorney General Charles Bonaparte to organize an autonomous investigative service that would report only to the Attorney General.[13]

    Bonaparte reached out to other agencies, including the U.S. Secret Service, for personnel, investigators in particular. On May 27, 1908, the Congress forbade this use of Treasury employees by the Justice Department, citing fears that the new agency would serve as a secret police department.[14] Again at Roosevelt’s urging, Bonaparte moved to organize a formal Bureau of Investigation, which would then have its own staff of special agents.[12][page needed]
    Creation of BOI

    The Bureau of Investigation (BOI) was created on July 26, 1908.[15] Attorney General Bonaparte, using Department of Justice expense funds,[12][page needed] hired thirty-four people, including some veterans of the Secret Service,[16][17] to work for a new investigative agency. Its first “Chief” (the title is now known as “Director”) was Stanley Finch. Bonaparte notified the Congress of these actions in December 1908.[12][page needed]

    The bureau’s first official task was visiting and making surveys of the houses of prostitution in preparation for enforcing the “White Slave Traffic Act” or Mann Act, passed on June 25, 1910. In 1932, the bureau was renamed the United States Bureau of Investigation.
    Creation of FBI

    The following year, 1933, the BOI was linked to the Bureau of Prohibition and rechristened the Division of Investigation (DOI); it became an independent service within the Department of Justice in 1935.[16] In the same year, its name was officially changed from the Division of Investigation to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

  20. Maybe Pistolis isn’t originally from Charlotte, but applying for a pistol permit isn’t even necessary there. Open carry is legal, and you can buy a firearm anywhere in the state and carry it anywhere you like. Why he even even bothered with an application isn’t clear to me, unless he wanted a concealed carry permit.

    I grew up there and the sight of men carrying their pistols was common.

    When will decent people realize that the police are not your friend

    30 years ago, in London, I found a really nice Nikon camera in its case – with zoom lenses, filters and so on. It was on a table outside a coffee shop in Queensway, a popular street for tourists with many cheaper hotels nearby.

    Like a good citizen, I took it to the police station and got a receipt for it. A month later, I returned to the police station to see whether it had been reclaimed. It was still there. Legally, it became my property. However, the policeman who had the task of fetching the camera made faces and took a long time to fetch it. When he handed it to me, he had a sour expression on his face. I learnt for the first time that London’s police were as corrupt as the police in many 3rd world countries.

    BTW, when I developed the film in the camera, the photos suggested that the owner was Mexican.

    It seems that the coffee shop is now an “Italian” brasserie. I didn’t know such things existed. 🙂

    ‘A King, Now and Always’: Khabib Nurmagomedov Says It Was His Last Fight After Winning Over Gaethje

    https://sputniknews.com/sport/202010241080871271-khabib-nurmagomedov-says-it-was-his-last-fight-after-winning-over-justin-gaethje/

    “By Muhammad Osman

    On Saturday, Russian Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter Khabib ‘The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov defeated his American opponent, Justin Gaethje, with a triangle choke submission technique in the 2nd round, scoring his 29th win.”

    More detail here:

    Khabib RETIRES! UFC superstar Nurmagomedov SUBMITS Justin Gaethje, then announces his retirement at UFC 254

    https://www.rt.com/sport/504479-ufc254-khabib-nurmagomedov-justin-gaethje/

    “Immediately after the win, Nurmagomedov dropped to his knees and wept as he fought for the first (and only) time outside the tutelage of his late father Abdulmanap, who passed away due to complications of Covid-19 earlier this year. Backed by his team, Khabib motioned for them to help him remove his gloves – a universal symbol of a combat sports retirement and soon confirmed as such to UFC commentator Jon Anik.

    “Today I want to say this was my last fight,” Nurmagomedov said. “No way I’m going to come here without my father. It was first time after what happened with my father, when UFC called me about Justin, I talk with my mother three days. She doesn’t want me to go fight without my father but I promised her it was going to be my last fight.

    “If I give my word, I have to follow this. It was my last fight here.”

    Nurmagomedov retires from the sport with an unparalleled record of 29-0, and becomes the first and only UFC champion to step away from the sport undefeated.”

    While apolitical sport, this quick defeat of an “exceptional” white american Christian (or Jew?) of northern euro background, by a Russian Muslim, who stands by his word, is very symbolic of the zionazi-gay lead assault on Russia. And how that conflict will work out for israel’s pindoland colony. 😀

Then the State Governments are brought into the big illegal picture , along with the public and private companies, corporations, Media,law enforcement unions, and other government overseers – for their initiations. This apparatus is now set to inform { apply the unconstitutional rules }to the lower set of companies, websites, Employers, companies etc. So as shit runs down hill , the poor bastard at the bottom { the populace }is usually an employee, worker, sub contractor, a service member { in this case}, a non violent protester, or just a lone commenter on the internet – Is Targeted and some Targeted big time. But it doesn’t stop here because the Rules are also meant for the guys being targeted – are supposed to go home and abuse the the wife, family – because of all the stress – and help create turmoil as far down as it can. And in some cases , like in the ghettos, the ruler made sure the drugs, alcohol and deep misery is extra strong , so families , don’t stand a chance. It’s a War against the people , the way I see it.

    The general sentiment should be to fight against anyone and anything that claims authority over our lives.

    All government, in its essence, is organized exploitation, and in virtually all its existing forms it is the implacable enemy of every industrious and well-disposed man. The typical politician is not only a rascal but also a jackass, for he so greatly values the puerile notoriety and adulation that sensible men try to avoid.
    H. L. Mencken

    Taking the State wherever found, striking into its history at any point, one sees no way to differentiate the activities of its founders, administrators and beneficiaries from those of a professional-criminal class.

    The State claims and exercises the monopoly of crime. It forbids private murder, but itself organizes murder on a colossal scale. It punishes private theft, but itself lays unscrupulous hands on anything it wants.

    LOL Alfred ! The whole world is corrupt and runs on greed.

    The powerful make the laws and everyone must obey but not them. Honest and fair play can get a fellow in trouble.

    Story Number 1: A security company filling up an ATM left a bag of cash containing $32,000 behind. A woman who was on welfare found the bag and turned it into the bank. The bank manager took the cash, thanked her and bid her goodbye. When the story got out in the press, the bank, ashamed at their miserly conduct gave her a $400 reward. When this got out in the press the welfare department honed in on the woman and chopped her benefit payment.

    Story Number 2: A dude visiting his Mom at her retirement home found a wallet containing money. He was a good guy like you and turned it in to the Police who in turn handed it over to the owner. To his surprise the Police showed up the next day stating that the owner alleged he had a winning lottery ticket in the wallet and it was now gone. Our good samaritan had the good sense to ask the police and the wallet owner to prove (a) that there was a ticket in the wallet (b) that he took it and (c) that he cashed it. Since this could not be done the allegation was dropped but only after a load of documentation was produced with of course his name on it. A few days later the police again showed up but this time to report the wallet owner found the ticket, in his coat pocket and it was not a winning ticket. There was no paperwork completed to record this reversal and the wallet owner offered no apology.

    Story Number 3: A dude with a low level job taking a short cut home through an alley after a night of partying stumbled on a back pack loaded with cash. He turned it over to the Police. It got out in the press the bag contained $1.1M in cash. Since it was unclaimed theoretically it was his. Unfortunately, the police department also felt it belonged to them and that was the end of it.

    So my advice to UNZ readers;
    1=Finders keepers !
    2=No good deed goes unpunished.
    3=Some things come along once in a lifetime. If you dont seize it someone else will !

  53. Everyone should read Abraham Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address where he explicitly states that his reason for invading the South will be taxes. In particular, THE IMPORT TAXES COLLECTED AT CHARLESTON HARBOR AND ENFORCED BY THE FEDERL ARMIES AT FORT SUMPTER. Now you see why South Carolina and Ft. Sumpter were so prominent to the beginnings of the war.

    https://lincolnabraham.com/abraham-lincolns-first-inaugural-address/

    Quotes from Lincoln’s above speech:

    Paragraph 4:
    “I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the
    institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no
    lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”

    Paragraph 21:
    “In doing this there needs to be no bloodshed or violence; and there
    shall be none, unless it be forced upon the national authority. The power
    confided to me will be used to hold, occupy, and possess the property and
    places belonging to the Government, and to collect the duties and imposts;
    but beyond what may be necessary for these objects, there will be no
    invasion, no using of force against or among the people anywhere.”

    BTW, “duties and imposts” are taxes.

    The Southern States were tired of paying the high import taxes to the Federal Government which was used to create business development in the Northern States. So they said “Goodbye”. It was a tax rebellion. And Lincoln killed half a million of his own people to make the Southerners pay tribute to the growing empire.

    This, of course, destroys the myth that Robert E. Lee and all the others of the South were “fighting for slavery”. The war had nothing to do with slavery.

    Only brainwashed zombies believe that Lincoln invaded and killed half a million of his own people to do something nice for someone else. Wars are not fought to do something nice for something else. Invasion and war is about killing people and taking what is theirs. We have all been brainwashed by propaganda in our education and culture to believe this war over slavery myth, and to demonize anyone who dares to disagree.

    Too bad this “war over slavery” myth is so prevalent in our society. Vasioliss Pistolis could argue his case using this correct history to show the “war over slavery” myth is a big lie, and therefor he (Pistolis) can show his actions have nothing to do with this fake modern race war. He was protecting the statue of a heroic General defending Southerners from the invading armies which not only killed soldiers of the South, but burned, murdered, and looted the South, most notoriously in the Shannandoah Valley of Virginia and in Atlanta.

  65. He didn’t exactly “lose” his gun rights; just was denied a handgun permit. From the wording, it appears that NCGS 14.404 only applies to handguns, so he could still get a long gun, unless that’s prohibited too for some other reason. But the part cited by the sheriff in denying the permit, “bad morals” of the applicant, essentially leaves it up to the sheriff as to whether anyone gets a permit to possess a handgun in that jurisdiction. Last I heard, rights aren’t something you have to apply for, and the gov’t can grant or not grant at whim.

    If you read Madison’s notes compiled at the Convention, largely consisting of his own speeches and long diatribes, it records the attempt to introduce Federal enforcement power into the Constitution under debate, essentially creating legal basis to foreclose upon any state ratifying the Constitution and later attempting to separate or secede.

    Madison claims that the enforcement provision was withdrawn at Madison’s insistence, which admits the reality that the subsequent Constitution was a compact, not a binding contractual agreement. Although Madison’s notes of what were at the time supposed to be secret proceedings are not in and of themselves law, they confirm that no legal basis ever existed to foreclose on any member state withdrawing from the compact.

    The genius introducing the rejected enforcement provision to the Constitution was Benjamin Rush a Philadelphian, considered one of the best Doctors in that era.. his primary area of expertise was draining blood and bad humours from his victims, er.. patients, often using medicinal leeches.

  70. flashlight joe: “This, of course, destroys the myth that Robert E. Lee and all the others of the South were “fighting for slavery”. The war had nothing to do with slavery.”

    Completely false. The war had everything to do with slavery. Georgia politician and later Confederate General Henry L. Benning said as much in his speech to the Virginia Convention. In relevant part:

    What was the reason that induced Georgia to take the step of secession? This reason may be summed up in one single proposition. It was a conviction, a deep conviction on the part of Georgia, that a separation from the North-was the only thing that could prevent the abolition of her slavery.

    Full speech here: http://civilwarcauses.org/benningva.htm

    flashlight joe: “Only brainwashed zombies believe that Lincoln invaded and killed half a million of his own people to do something nice for someone else.”

    In his second inaugural Lincoln himself also admitted the war was over slavery. More, he said that everyone knew at the time that it was over slavery. I quote from his second inaugural:

    One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the Southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was, somehow, the cause of the war.

    flashlight joe: “Too bad this “war over slavery” myth is so prevalent in our society. ”

    Too bad it’s not a myth, but instead the horrific result of applied Christianity. From the founding of the country, Christians had agitated against slavery, and they finally forced a war over it.

    “My friends, I have detained you about as long as I desired to do, and I have only to say, let us discard all this quibbling about this man and the other man – this race and that race and the other race being inferior, and therefore they must be placed in an inferior position – discarding our standard that we have left us. Let us discard all these things, and united as one people throughout this land, until we shall once more stand up declaring that all men are created equal.”

    Seriously, Unz.com is great place to get many alternative views, but this piece is a disservice to it.
    I clicked on the headline to read ERIC STRIKER’s report, but a very quick fact-check confirmed it was misleading:

    Striker writes:

    Pistolis provided an email dated May 2020 from his Sheriff’s office, which oversees handgun permit requests, showing that he was denied the right to self-defense based solely on the fact that he had “participated in white supremacy rallies in Virginia and Tennessee, with reports indicating that Applicant participated in an assaulting individuals at said rallies.”

    Pistolis has not been criminally charged or credibly accused of any unlawful assaults, and both rallies in question were legally permitted and First Amendment protected. The decision was made arbitrarily by the Sheriff based on his perception of the applicant’s beliefs and slanted media lies.

    There was more than just his beliefs for the Sheriff to consider:

    “Pistolis marched with white supremacists and boasted about “drop-kicking” a woman at the rally and “cracking heads.” He has a history of extremist views known because he’d left a clear boot-print all over the internet. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of videos, photographs, screenshots, posts, comments, threads, chats and more across dozens of platforms on the everyday web and the dark one via the Tor browser, the latter nonetheless easily accessible. He changed his handles often, deleted and then recreated pages, but does not appear to have been hiding very well; Pistolis’ views are in plain sight. Or were.
    . . .In Charlottesville, Pistolis was photographed and videotaped in what he called, “the best fight of my life” and bragged,”Today cracked 3 skulls open with virtually no damage to myself.”
    Pistolis wrote on the chat exactly what he’d be wearing at the rally-cum-riot and again, he’d been either naively open or emboldened. Regardless, he was easy to spot in an Adidas track suit with very visible white lines on the sleeves. And spotted he was at the center of a number of violent clashes in photographs and videos taken by major media, rally participants and bystanders.”

    From the official but independent Heaphy Report on the Charlottesville events:

    Tim Messer, a witness with whom we spoke, explained that the skirmishes he observed followed a consistent pattern. As the Unite The Right groups approached Emancipation
    Park, counter-protesters shouted “here they come” and formed blockades. The
    demonstrators then used shields, flags, or fists to start skirmishes, all of which were
    eventually broken up by pepper spray. The crowd would then part and allow them entry
    into the park. That scenario played out at least half a dozen times. Mr. Messer encountered
    a VSP trooper near 2nd and Market Streets and asked him why police had been standing
    back. The trooper replied, “Our policy today is that we cannot get involved in every
    skirmish, and we are here to protect the public’s safety.” The witness was incredulous that
    police would allow the fights to go on, but the trooper reiterated, “That is our policy.”

    Slightly earlier:

    At that moment, a massive column of hundreds of Unite The Right demonstrators marched west down Market Street towards the southeast entrance of Emancipation Park. Led by
    members of the League of the South and the Traditionalist Worker Party, they wore helmets
    and carried shields, flagpoles, and pepper spray. The crowd of counter-protesters saw this,
    and they rushed east to form their own blockade in front of the clergy. They locked arms
    and blocked Market Street.324 Captain Shifflett called out the sudden movement of counter-protesters at 10:52 a.m. Around that same time, an officer in Zone 2 observed, “They’re trying to take over the street.” Officer Hulme saw this and remarked, “This is going to get ugly—they’re blocking their passage. This is going to get really ugly if they don’t get out of the way.”

    The Antifa/antifa not only fail to understand the rights to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly as guaranteed under the Constitution, they also don’t understand separation of church and state:

    Another woman who stood near the barricade had been turning back and forth for
    a few minutes, watching the police, like she was waiting to see if and when they might react.
    Seeing no reaction, she finally shouted with emotion: This is shameful! I am a teacher, I am a community member, take care of
    your people! What the fuck are you doing? I am the wife of a priest, I am a
    teacher, I love this City! Take care of your people!

    Ha, that’s what the bourgeoisie said in 1917. By 1920, they and their children were being mass executed. They, too, thought if they just cower behind closed doors with the shades drawn and the lights out and the doors locked, they’d be alright and the trouble would eventually go away. What they didn’t understand was the nature of the Bolsheviks. The Bolsheviks were and are, as one person put it to me, “uniquely committed to genocide.” Read Deuteronomy.

    Keeping your head down only ensures your destruction and the destruction of your children. We need men to stand up and fight and, especially, not be afraid of hurty words.

    That 1908 Congress was in session 5 years before a rump Congress, during the Christmas recess in 1913 passed the “Federal” Reserve Act which was promptly signed by a blackmailed president Thomas Woodrow Wilson. Since our money supply was taken over by the bankster cabal, the Congress has become progressively more and increasingly inclined towards governmental tyranny over the individual and over the entire republic comprised of WE THE PEOPLE.

    Slightly earlier. . .
    The Antifa/antifa not only fail to understand the rights to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly as guaranteed under the Constitution, they also don’t understand separation of church and state. . .

    I’m not sure if that’s enough to exonerate Vasillios Pistolis or not.
    I’m certain it doesn’t excuse Striker’s failure to inform his readers of Pistolis’s background, that Pistolis was photographed and videotaped participating in the violence, and that Pistolis called it “the best fight of my life” and bragged ”Today cracked 3 skulls open with virtually no damage to myself.”

    Aren’t you fascinated by this common misconception? Why is it so usual for people to call everyone in power cold, calculating, rational, Machiavellian? Does it all stem from Marxism, from a hard scientific economic view of history? Or from some psychological mechanism, comparable to evil conspiracy theories?

    Were those Xhosa master manipulators when they killed their own cattle and starved to death in the 1850s?

    History is full of stupid, suicidal, merciful people. The Crusaders were fighting over the Jewish homeland in a Levantine desert. The Anglos destroyed their empire to save the Jewish spirit. The Americans chose to vaccinate all the non-Whites in the world, and then import them to their homelands. Maybe, if Mexico had joined the Warsaw Pact, the Americans would have had the gall violently to invade their southern neighbour – but when it’s peace time, it’s race-mixing time! Economics be damned, geopolitics be sacrificed – let alone those pesky pagan genetics. All out of the goodness of their hearts. Outside of the Orient, materialism stopped being in vogue around 313.

    China, if not an adversary, is our chief competitor who steals our technology and intellectual capital to have an advantage over us.

    Our corporations have willing given China their technology…to make a buck. You really have the Trump talking points down pat.

    They aren’t as nice as you think.

    Hey, thanks for the tip. I sure glad someone like you can share your vast knowledge of China with me. More Deep State propaganda.

    He’s been thwarted in this by the Deep State/NEOCON CABAL/Swamp.

    WELL SAID. You forgot:

    * Dont trust anyone including family members and friends
    *Never talk about yourself
    *Never answer questions
    *A blank face always
    *Never reveal your emotions
    *Dont be flashy on clothes, cars, money, jewellery or housing
    *Pay cash for everything
    *Dont put anything in writing (including emailing and texting)
    *Keep phone conversations short and vague
    *Have a disposable cut out phone

    In a word be completely anonymous and unknown

    It all sounds paranoid but friends of mine have discovered that its the loose shoe lace and not the log that trips up a fellow.

I haven’t lived there since 1992, and there have been changes since then, but buying a rifle, at least, is still the same and permitless carry has already passed the lower House in 2017 and is still pending in the state Senate.

    That “new suburban class” appears to be made up mostly of retirees from DC and the surrounding suburbs who have moved to the Richmond suburbs and are heavily involved in local politics. They infest Goochland, Chesterfield and Powhatan counties and are spreading into Amelia and Hanover counties as well.

    They are becoming a pestilence wherever they invade and their voters who are still employed in DC have already been a real problem in the northern counties around DC for decades. Their effect on state politics have given us governors born in other states and senators who would be unelectable here without the widespread vote fraud made possible by the “new suburban class” .

    Thanks for mentioning this infestation.

    What do you do if loons with a long history of violence (see the attacks on Trump rallies over the last four years, but terminating just recently as if ordered to do so) try to block you from entering a venue for which you have a permit backed up by a federal court order and the police are standing aside refusing to get involved?

    Just looking at all the blacks in uniform and who works at the VA I’ve known the military was pro black for years. Every town in Europe except France is filled with uniformed blacks from nearby US bases. Every European airport and the international terminals in US airports are filled with US uniformed blacks.

    Why husband and I are White Nationalists instead of conservatives.

    Difference between White Nationalists and conservatives.

    Conservatives decry blacks and Hispanics aborting their babies who will grow up to be enemies of Whites. But they ignore the effects of affirmative action and government anti White racism on their own White children More black & Brown babies, ignore affirmative action and black on White crime is the motto of conservatives.

    White Nationalists are pro White anti affirmative action anti black on White crime and don’t give a rat’s ass what knocked up black & brown women do about it. And, unlike the White conservatives who can’t afford more than 1 or 2 White children, we have big families of blue eyed fair skinned blondey browney White children.

    A new Amazon Prime movie Plot Against the President is an excellent expose of what the Obama administration, the DNC and FBI did to the elected president.

    I really recommend it. Producer director is the daughter of John Mileus. He’s ardently pro 2nd amendment a gun expert and collector. He was one of the few pro White patriot conservatives in the movie business.

    Look around. Trump and Biden are your choices. Is either someone you want in control or is he just the lesser of two evils? Look at the Congress with witches like Pelosi in control followed by ‘the squad’ of morons. On the other side you have pinheads like Mitch who is married to a Chinese woman whose family has deep tiers to the Chinese gov’t. The entire Congress is corrupt to the core.

    Look at the loonies that have thoroughly corrupted the educational system. Common core, all the race nonsense, attacks on free speech and the coddling of mentally deranged people that need safe spaces because they heard something they didn’t like.

    To produce this situation requires control. That control is government. Once the loonies get control of the gov’t this is what you invariably get.

    What is so wrong with individuals thinking for themselves and acting on their own thoughts? The only law worth having is the non aggression principle that everyone can agree on.

    Face it. Gov’t always gets corrupted and it always uses the force it has accumulated to demand obedience to ever more stupid laws and regulations. That’s where we are now.

    If gov’t is needed at all, it should be local within a small community of people that see things the same way and that offers the opportunity to shoot some bastard that tries becoming a king. The smaller the jurisdiction the better and that logically leads to the jurisdiction of the lone individual – anarchism.

  101. This continued harassment of Pistolis is particularly outrageous in light of the fact that what transpired at Charlottesville is entirely different from we have been told about it by the mainstream media. See “The Charlottesville Operation” at http://www.dcdave.com/article5/170901.htm.

    Speaking of which, it should never be assumed for a second that the human race is going to be a successful species.

    What’s your benchmark for a successful species? Galactic imperium? Surviving the (presumably cyclical) heat death of the Universe?

    I’m not trying to be a weisenheimer, but I’m just having a difficult time envisioning a criteria by which Homo Sapiens would be regarded as something other than a successful species. We dominate the globe. All species go extinct eventually. That’s not failure; death is the price of life.

  109. Mr Pistolis needs to know what the FBI is and which president tried his best to disband the agency. See http://www.truedemocracy.net/w01/1.html which has 7 articles immediately following this link from Buenos Aires, Argentina, the only country to expose the crime that betrayed the entire world in 1963. Also, the FBI is in http://www.truedemocracy.net/td3/contents.html because it is a Shadow government agency, not a constitutional agency.

    As for Antifa, Mr Pistolis should contact this man in Arkansas:

    John Porter
    118 Approach Drive
    Harrison, Arkansas
    870-741-4119
           
    George Soros also funds Antifa. Mr Pistolis can contact me so that I will be able to send him information via e-mail on this aspect.

    God bless Mr Pistolis and his family,

    While it is possible to buy guns in Virginia, finding ammunition is tough. Is that because it is in such demand that it quickly sells out, or because it’s simply being made unavailable? A weapon without bullets becomes just a large paperweight.

    By perpetuating the myth that the war was about slavery, the victors have been able to take the moral high ground. If the truth is told, that it was indeed a tax rebellion, that moral high ground vanishes. Even worse for the victors, today’s overtaxed citizens may get ideas.

    The good thing about our politically correct government/military/police is that it is a paper tiger and no threat to anyone. It’s just a question of whether this truth will be demonstrated by another nation like China or Russia or by a citizen revolt. Short, skinny, lightly armed Vietnamese peasants sent the U.S. scurrying away, tail between its legs, in 1972. America was a much more formidable nation then. Trump has tried to hold things together by recreating that, but it’s an impossible task.

    Repression will have to increase much more for a core of citizens to react, since most Americans are worthless sheep. China and Russia will not want to try to manage the country by invading it. So expect the next ten years to be like 2020. Try to look at it as a black comedy. Don’t invest yourself in trying to rebel or reform the system. All you will do is shoot yourself in the foot at worst and get absolutely nowhere at best.

    Quaddafi was deposed in the interests of (((those))) that wanted a Libyan (((Rothschild/Warburg))) owned private central bank.
    Obama, Hillary, the NeoCon slag Nudelman-Kagan were the general contractors that issued the hit order on the guy that was trying to establish a new Pan-African currency supported by a basket of precious metals, oil and other commodities…a clear threat to (((International Banking Interests))).

    In that regard, Quaddafi was whacked for the same reason that JFK had his head opened up in broad daylight.
    (((Big Media))) can’t ignore enough JFK’s EO 11111 that restored the power to issue currency to The Treasury Department, removing that power from (((The Federal Reserve Bank))) vampire pirate scam.

    Both JFK and Quaddafi failed to know the depths of murderous depravity on the part of (((The Swine That Rule)))…
    else, they would have pre-emptively destroyed them, forever.
