and no great change; we are only what we always were, but naked now."
He walks as though toward a great horror, facing the open sky.... Proctor:
"Aye, naked! And the wind, God's icy wind, will blow!" And Mary
Warren is over and over again sobbing, "I cannot, I cannot, I cannot,"

FROM THE ASHES OF WHIDBEY ISLAND TO THE RUBBLE OF OKLAHOMA CITY BY WAY
OF "JOHN-DOE-VILLE" (ELOHIM CITY)--
"Rebels With A Cause": J.D. Cash's Latest Series On "The
Movement" From "The Order" to the "New Order."
McCurtain (Oklahoma) Gazette, 27 December 1996
REBELS WITH A CAUSE: TERRORISM, BANK ROBBERIES ARE LEGACY OF WHITE SEPARATISTS.
By J.D. Cash with Jeff Holladay
(McCurtain Gazette Editor's Note: Bombings...terrorism...bank robberies...
white separatists. They've all been linked, at one time or another, in
the McCurtain Gazette stories about the Oklahoma City bombing, one of the
worst terrorist incidents in the history of the U.S. Yet, few Americans
or Oklahomans today have any inkling of the ideology that drives these
homegrown revolutionaries, whose links to the "OKBOMB" case may
be closer than previously believed. The series of stories that follow detail
the resurrection of white separatism, the ideology that drives the movement
and the criminal enterprises that finance it.)
Idabell, Oklahoma-- Stirring from the ashes of Whidbey Island in Washington
state, memories of the revolutionary figure Robert Jay Mathews-- leader
of the near-mythical white separatist group known as the "Order"--
were rekindled earlier this year during stunning testimony detailing a
string of bank robberies in the Midwest.
At a pre-trial hearing this summer, and at a criminal trial last month,
crucial evidence portrayed a robbery spree of white separatists as part
of their plans for a home-grown revolution.
It bears a striking resemblance to a similar pursuit a decade ago by
Mathews, whose death in 1984 elevated him to the pantheon of demi-gods
in the Aryan movement. Arrested and charged so far are alleged gang members
Kevin W. McCarthy, 19, Peter K. Langan, 38; Scott A. Stedeford, 27; and
Richard l. Guthrie Jr., 37.
In November, the government put its first defendant on trial in Des
Moines, Iowa, with defendant Scott Stedeford being found guilty after only
two hours of deliberation by a jury. More bank robbery trials are pending.
Providing riveting testimony about the group earlier was a former "skinhead"
who described an audacious plan by a rag-tag group of revolutionaries bent
on the destruction of the federal government. "Our goal was to open
the door to the overthrow of the United States government," said Kevin
McCarthy. McCarthy, who entered a plea bargain agreement with federal prosecutors
in exchange for testimony, told the court that he was recruited by the
gang in the fall of 1994.
Afterward, he participated in six bank robberies, with the major portion
of the proceeds divided equally among the members, McCarthy testified.
Some of the loot, he testified, was put away for expenses; some for other
"acts". McCarthy was not asked to elaborate on what these acts
might have been.
Transcriber's Note: Oklahoma City, perhaps? Will Langan's attorneys
have the cojones to ask THAT question on cross examination?
But allegations that they included funding for various terrorist operations--
such as the Oklahoma City bombing-- have caused the FBI to investigate
several individuals and groups that may have received funds.
His "cell", McCarthy testified, was part of what the members
called the "Aryan Republican Army." And his leader, he said,
was Peter "Commander Pedro" Langan. Federal prosecutors allege
that, beginning with a January 25, 1994, heist in Ames, Iowa, Langan and
others went on a binge of 21 other bank robberies across seven states--
netting more than $250,000. None of the money has been recovered.
Based on telephone records, eyewitness accounts and offcial statements
provided the FBI in conjunction with the Oklahoma City bombing investigation,
the McVeigh-Nichols "cell" of alleged bombing conspirators may
be linked to the Aryan Republican Army more closely than has yet been reported.
That linkage, sources have told the Gazette, may be the result of a
REBIRTH of a secret society of ultra-right-wing revolutionaries....long
believed to have been destroyed, but rising Phoenix-like from the ashes
of a group that emerged a decade ago.
END PART ONE.
McCurtain Daily Gazette, 28 December 1996
REBELS WITH A CAUSE, The Second in A Series.
By J.D. Cash with Jeff Holladay
(Gazette Editor's Note: Timothy McVeigh and other contemporary white
separatists did not emerge full-grown like Zeus during the past several
years. Instead they are a continuation of the white separatist movement
spawned by Robert Jay Mathews and others a decade or more ago. Here is
the story of Mathews, who is credited with shaping much of the radical
element of the white separatist movement.)
Idabel, Okla -- In the early 1960s, Bob Mathews was growing up in Barry
Goldwater's Arizona, amid a national political trend many believed was
witnessing a nation going down the path of creeping socialism-- even communism.
Perplexed by the course events were taking, Mathews dabbled with right-wing
issues when he joined the John Birch Society at age 12.
By the age of 18, Mathews was training in the desert with the Sons of
Liberty, preparing for the coming guerrilla war against communist invaders.
His ideology and views continued to become more extreme. In 1973 he became
a tax resister.
Five years later, after reading William Gayle Simpson's "Which
Way Western Man?" and joining its publisher William Pierce's National
Alliance, the die was cast for what Mathews would eventually become.
Pierce, a former University of Oregon physics professor, is best known
today for writing "The Turner Diaries"-- considered a blueprint
for a white supremacist-led insurrection by an underground group called
"The Order." It was a bible for the white separatist movement,
and it provided both an identity and a purpose for people like Bob Mathews--
and later, Timothy McVeigh.
By 1974, Mathews was on probation for tax fraud. Intrigued by the allure
of the former Northwest Territories, the young man packed up and move to
Metaline Falls, Washington. Not long after arriving, Mathews paid a visit
to a white separatist enclave, the Church of Jesus Chist Christian, at
Hayden Lake, Idaho, several hours from where he lived. Soon Mathews decided
he had found a place he could call home, people he could befriend, and
a cause he could support-- the struggle for a white Aryan homeland.
Pastor Richard Butler ruled over the 20-acre retreat, which was rapidly
becoming a mecca for white separatists seeking like-minded people. Mathews
became a regular. Eventually, he would become a leader.
Kahl's Death Proves Catalyst
By July, 1983, the death of tax protester and Posse Comitatus member
Gordon Kahl had fueled a rowdier-than-usual tone at Hayden Lake's annual
"Aryan World Congress."
Already, Mathews was emerging as a can-do leader. He had successfully
convinced a few other men that he could translate the fictional "Turner
Diaries" into reality. Gordon Kahl's death, plus the fiery speeches,
inflammatory rhetoric and a sense of urgency to strike while the iron was
hot, spawned Mathew's plan for guerrilla warfare against the federal government.
The goal of "The Order", or "Der Bruders Schweigen"
(The Silent Brotherhood) as Mathew's group came to be known, was an all-white
homeland in the northwestern U.S. Federal authorities, though, thought
the plan sounded a lot more like secession-- and sedition.
But it was the group's means more than their ends that eventually created
the greatest calamity for all involved. After getting a logging contract
with the U.S. Forest service to support their cause, but discovering that
the work was hard and the returns insufficient for their purposes, the
group turned to crime.
The gang's first "hit" was a porno store. Their take: $369.10.
"Revolutions have started from less," Mathews told his supporters.
Fulfilling his promise, it wasn't long before the Silent Brotherhood pulled
more grandiose schemes. Setting up a printing press, they experimented
But the real money, as former eastern Oklahoma outlaw "Pretty Boy"
Floyd was wont to say, was in banks. And that's where the Silent Brotherhood
turned next...well, sort of.
In 1984, they robbed an armored car of $235,000 in Washington state,
sending $40,000 of it to Aryan Nations headquarters at Hayden Lake, Idaho.
With time, the gang's activities became more sophisticated. They experimented
with disguises. They tried diversionary tactics designed to throw authorities
off their trail. Sending police to the wrong side of town just minutes
before a heist was one such ploy. Mathews code name became "Carlos"
after he darkened his face for a robbery and the police issued an APB for
a Hispanic individual.
Using aliases, the gang paid cash for inexpensive used cars they'd abandon
within a few hundred yards of the group's robberies. They traveled under
aliases obtained from cemeteries and obituaries, using those to get birth
certificates, Social Security numbers and driver's licenses.
After months of honing their skills, the gang worked up a plan which
resulted in their largest and most daring heist ever. It was an ambush
of a Brink's armored car. It took place in daylight at a steep bend in
Highway 20, near California's scenic Route 101.
Working in full view of shocked motorists, members of The Order hauled
sack after sack from the armored car-- an incredible $3.8 million when
they tallied the take later. Flush with more cash than they ever dreamed
possible, the revolutionaries set out across the country, making substantial
donations to leading figures in the "Movement."
But as is often the case in such matters, it was an informant that did
the gang in. Member Tom Martinez had agreed to work for the FBI in echange
for a reduction in sentence on charges related to passing some of the gang's
In late November, 1994, he arranged a meeting in Portland with Mathews
and another gang member. The FBI moved in, but in a shoot-out that left
Mathews and an FBI agent slightly wounded, Mathews effected his escape.
By December 3, Mathews was nursing his wounds and trying to pull his
scattered gang back together at a rented house at Smuggler's Cove on Whidbey
Island in Washington's Puget Sound. While Mathews raged at Martinez treachery,
another of his "Silent Brotherhood" betrayed him by calling the
FBI from a phone booth on the island.
The FBI deployed more than 150 Special Agents including SWAT team agents
from Seattle, Portland, Butte, San Francisco and Los Angeles, supported
by the Hostage Rescue Team from FBI headquarters in Quantico, Virginia.
Using the Whidbey Naval Air Station as a command post, the FBI surrounded
The FBI took all of Matthews' followers on the island without incident,
but Mathews refused to surrender. A standoff lasted until 2:00pm the following
day, when, after pumping the house full of tear gas, eight agents stormed
the two-story dwelling.
Mathews fired his machine-gun blindly through the wood flooring, driving
back the FBI agents who escaped unhurt but shaken into the nearby woods.
Next, the situation turned into a hide-and-seek game as Mathews ran
from window to window shooting at agents-- who returned fire from the woods.At
dusk, a helicopter was called in to hover over the house in an attempt
to unnerve Mathews. After taking fire from Mathews, the helicopter was
Instructions came from the FBI command post: Lob M79 starburst flares
into the rapidly deteriorating vacation home. That set it ablaze. Then
stockpiled ammunition began to detonate. As a conflagration enveloped the
house, agents waited anxiously for Mathews to surrender. He never did.

A LETTER FROM "JOHN-DOE-VILLE":
"The Best of Today With A Promise For Tomorrow"
A Division of Elohim, Inc. Route 3, Box 293 Muldrow, OK 74948
PH#: 918-427-7739 FAX: 427-7686
Rev. Robert G. Millar, President
December 26, 1996
Mr. Mike Vanderboegh
Editor, The John Doe Times
Pinson, AL 35126
Dear Mr. Vanderboegh,
It is most kind of you to send me the informational poster "Unwanted
By The F.B.I." I assume you sent it to me because of the references
to Elohim City and the liklihood of the poster being used as part of a
smear tactic against myself and Elohim City.
I am told that Morris Dees and his ilk have carried on an active smear
campaign against us but the bashing of President Clinton minimizes the
possibility that he is involved in this.
There might be someone with a grudge against someone, other than myself,
who is also a resident of Elohim City, who has produced this poster.
Then again, the weight of historical and Biblical evidence is so much
in favour of the truth of "Christian Identity" that zionists
and their ilk can only discredit us by associating us with bank robbers,
murderers and bombers.
Guilt by association is an old and dishonorable practice among those
who have little factual information to support their cause, but in this
article "guilt by association" seems to be carried to a new low
in that the tactic is used even before the majority of the "associates"
have been proved guilty.
The drawing of the John Doe #2 does not, I can assure you, resemble
Mike Brescia who is a clean cut, preppie, slight, college boy. I would
think the reason he has not been questioned by authorities is because they
don't think he's guilty. At any rate, I think it is best for us if we presume
people innocent until proven guilty.
I don't believe I have ever heard of your publication "The John
Doe Times". Could you send me an issue, I would interested in knowing
what you are all about. Then (the?-- mv) news media have an important role
to play in these times of political upheaval. I applaud every news reporter
that makes thorough and honest attempts to "tell it as it is."
Looking forward to seeing you, For kith and kin, God and Country,
(Signature),Rev. Robert G. Millar
My Response To "Guilt By Association" Charges from the Mayor
7 January 1997
Rev. Robert G. Millar, President
Elohim City, A Division of Elohim, Inc.
Route 3, Box 293
Muldrow, Oklahoma 74948
Dear Rev. Millar,
I'm glad you liked the "Unwanted By The FBI" poster of your
grandson-in-law-to-be, Michael Brescia. A copy of it is now posted on the
World Wide Web, and individual copies will be gracing telephone poles along
Manatawna Avenue in Philadelphia shortly. You're quite right, you know:
Morris Dees had nothing to do with this poster. It was entirely my creation
and I am certainly no friend of Morris "the Molester" Dees. If
you don't believe me, just ask him. I have discovered that, contrary to
the philosophy "the enemy of my enemy is my friend", that if
you choose your friends from amongst your enemy's enemies you soon find
it impossible to tell your friends from your enemies.
As far as anyone tarring Elohim City with a "smear campaign",
I would observe that hogs who roll in their own excrement may be said to
be engaged in a "smear campaign" yet they have no on to blame
but themselves. I hold no "grudge" against you, nor anyone else
at "E.C." (as you call it). In fact, we have not even been introduced.
But I assure you that I am no "zionist" and indeed, I am not
Jewish but Presbyterian.
If it means anything, your friendly neighbor and Identity associate
"Prophet of the most high" Ray Lampley once called me an "uncircumcized
dog". This was a curious thing, I thought, for we here in Alabama
have never felt the need to circumcize our dogs (I know my dog wouldn't
take very kindly to the idea) but perhaps you folks in Oklahoma have a
different practice. (For his part, Lampley is now in the federal jug, having
attempted stupid bomb tricks in the presence of both ATF & FBI snitches.
Wasn't he going to demo those out at the "Richard Wayne Snell Memorial
Bomb Testing Range" at Elohim City?)
You wax quite eloquent about "guilt by association" as in:
"zionists and their ilk can only discredit us by associating us with
bank robbers, murderers and bombers." Leaving aside Tim McVeigh, Mike
Brescia, ATF Strassmeir, the Ward boys and OKC for a second, may I gently
point out that two former residents of Elohim City, Scott Stedeford and
Kevin McCarthy, have already been convicted or pled guilty to bank robbery
as members of the Aryan Republican Army? A frequent visitor to Elohim,
ARA leader Richard Guthrie, also copped to bank robbery and bomb charges
as part of a plea agreement with Feds before his untimely "Arkancide"
at the end of a dirty bedsheet in his Kentucky jail cell. Another ARA visitor,
Peter Langan, sits in jail awaiting trial this week for bank robbery and
other charges in Columbus, Ohio.
Dennis Mahon of White Aryan Resistance, whose "Silver BUllet"
travel trailer was out at "E.C." for so long weeds grew up around
it, was just called before the Tulsa grand jury to answer questions about
another bomb plot to blow up federal buildings in Tulsa and elsewhere,
as was Carol Howe, a long-term former resident of Elohim (you remember
Carol, she used to hang around with all the "preppie college boys"
that surrounded Andy). I expect both of them will be arrested (and singing
their lungs out) shortly.
Finally, do we really need to discuss the case of cop-killer Richard
Snell, who was ultimately executed (coincidentally on 19 April 1995) for
mistakenly executing a pawn shop owner he THOUGHT was Jewish? So, long
story short, Pastor Millar: I don't think you need any "zionists"
to invent your associations with "bank robbers, murderers and bombers."
You, sir, have done that very well all by yourself. try to remember that,
as is often true in cases of "guilt by association", the "assoiates"
In fact, the whole Aryan movement pretty much used "E.C."
as a little "Switzerland" for a while, din't they? Free from
state or federal law enforcement interference, they could come to "Elohim,
Inc.", engage in military training with "ATF Andy" and Dennis
Mahon, practice maneuvers, and test explosive devices without fear of arrest.
Of course that doesn't mean you were free from surveillance. There are
those fascinating aerial photos of the bunker system you installed (or
was it Andy?) between the church and the school. The amount of concrete
that was hauled out there is somewhat in dispute, I know, but "substantial"
probably covers it.
And what ARE those suspicious spots on the photo recon prints where
the earth was disturbed on "the back forty"? I assume that's
where Andy & Co. kept their arms caches. I'd hate to think they were
graves. While we're on the subject, did you ever figure out who was hanging
out in that tree by the entrance photographing folks as they came and went?
He wasn't one of ours, and the Oklahoma state boys disavowed him, so he
must have been a fed. Have you asked the Oklahoma City FBI S.A.C.?
"Guilt by association," you state, "is an old and dishonorable
practice". True, true, but an even older and more dishonorable practice
is the use of religion to advance political causes and to use as a shield
to hide from the consequences of illegal acts. You know as a Constitutional
militiaman, the last thing I want to see is Elohim City made into another
Waco. As despicable as I find your "racialist" philosophy to
be, I would die to protect your Constitutional rights against a federal
Fortunately for us, there are a few major differences between your case
as it is shaping up, and Waco. First, none of David Koresh's friends and
associates had anything to do with multiple bank robbery, bomb-making and
mass murder. On an innocence scale, Koresh and his people rated substantially
higher, in my opinion, than do you and some of your present and former
associates. Nobody ever used Mount Carmel as a base for neo-Nazi terrorist
operations. Can you say the same about Elohim City? Will a jury agree with
you, or me?
Second, a federal assault on "E.C." is highly unlikely by
virtue of the fact that they would not endanger their substantial intelligence
assets already in place there. Aside from long-time federal snitch Mr.
Ellison, et. al., I hear you now have Oklahoma City FBI Special Agent in
Charge (SAC) Thomas Kuker coming out on a regular basis to "sing in
the choir." Exactly who's doing the singing, and what hymnal they're
singing from is of great interest to me and my friends.
(Tongue-in-cheek speculation: "We will now sing verses 1,2 &
5 of the 'Coverup Chorus', pasted on the back of page 454 in your hymnals...Special
Agent Kuker, will you begin?")
Doubtless it will also be of interest to the FBI Office of Professional
Responsibility, if not a congressional oversight committee, at some point
in time. (By the way, isn't having Ellison do your carpentry something
like the result of getting the Russians to build an American embassy in
Moscow-- well-built but wired? Came to you right after OKC didn't he? Hmmmmm.........)
Third, the federales are loathe to draw any attention to Elohim City
because of the danger of upsetting their "McVeigh-as-single-bomber-applecart"
at the trial in Denver-- but of course that applecart is so rickety we
both know it's going to collapse of its own weight during cross examination.
Then we can all watch the "apples" roll downhill to YOUR door.
So I'll hazard a guess that the feds are not particularly interested
in raiding you just now. However, if Ellison goes to the Radio Shack in
Forth Smith one day and doesn't return, and you get a call from Kuker saying
he's got laryngitis, you might want to start packing your small bag of
"The drawing of John Doe #2 does not, I can assure you, resemble
Mike Brescia who is a clean cut, preppie, slight college boy," you
avow. Well, my momma always told me to give preachers the benefit of the
doubt in the Truth Department, but I'll give you some reasons for our selection
of Michael Brescia as "John Doe #2" and then I'll give you a
chance to settle the matter. First, sketch photos (you may know, as you've
had more contact with criminals than I have) are an inexact science. Timmy
McVeigh doesn't look exactly like the drawing of "John Doe #1"
but he was subsequently picked out of an actual lineup by the witnesses.
Now I understand that Peter Ward (another former Elohimite) is actually
a better match for the "John Doe #1" drawing than is McVeigh.
Does this mean that Peter Ward is actually John Doe #1? Shall we ask Peter
if he wishes to stand in his own lineup? Would you mind if he did?
As far as Mikey and "John Doe #2", the witnesses at Elliott's
(and others in OKC and elsewhere) picked Brescia's photo out as John Doe
#2. Also, I'm sure you know about the witnesses scattered from Wyoming
to Texas who place Brescia in the company of McVeigh and Strassmeir prior
to the bombing. You know, Pastor, you should really counsel Mikey to stay
out of strip clubs, in Tulsa or Philadelphia. Such places are bad for the
soul, hard on the wallet, dangerous to reproductive health and his frequenting
them might make Esther made to boot. Wives can't testify against their
husbands, ex-girlfriends can.
Here's your chance to settle the matter: Just get your daughter Joan
to pick out some of the best pictures from her family photo album of Mikey
and Esther taken 'round about the time of the bombing. (Hint: try to get
one that doesn't show him in sunglasses and ballcap.) We'll be happy to
show them to the witnesses, and if they have second thoughts, I guess your
boy's off the hook. Unless he's John Doe #5 or #6 instead of John Doe #2.
Of course there's still that matter of the bank robbery he did with
the Aryana Republican Army up in Madison, Wisconsin (McCarthy testified
that Stedeford brought Mikey back to "E.C." after the robbery.
Is that why Brescia left Elohim City shortly afterward? Did Daddy find
out that his precious Esther's "intended" was a bank robber,
too? I'm sure that you would NEVER take ANY money from bank robbers.)
Not to mention the question of why Bill Mueller, shortly before his
family's disappearance/murder in January, 1996, was telling an Arkansas
reporter about the "Mutt & Jeff of the ATF" (my phrase in
The John Doe Times)-- Andy Strassmeir and Mike Brescia. So maybe we need
to show Joan's pictures of Mikey around to a few more places (like Wisconsin
and Arkansas)--- you're sure he's innocent, arent you? What have you got
to lose? (P.S. If Tim McVeigh's in any of them, you might want to crop
him out with scissors. We'll notice if you don't.)
I agree with you that "it is best for us if we presume people innocent
until proven guilty." I also believe that anyone as firmly convinced
of his friends' (and his own) innocence as you should hasten down to give
a deposition to Edye Smith's lawyer in her civil suit against the bombers
(which, surprise, surprise, includes Michael Brescia, late of Elohim City).
You may have noticed that the number of persons named in the suit has been
slowly expanding as new headlines develop more information. I'm giving
odds that you and Elohim, Inc. will be on the "list for service"
by the end of March, as more and more information develops about Michael
Brescia & Co.
May I suggest that there's a perfect way to avoid Elohim City changing
hands (and names) to "Edye's Acres" -- hustle on down to her
attorney with a deposition that tells everything you know (and the whole
truth for once would help). You might even avoid state prosecution for
harboring a criminal enterprise.
Of course, you don't have to worry about federal prosecution just yet--
you're laboring under the same protective tent as Mike Brescia. You and
I both know that "OKBOMB" as the FBI calls it was an ATF sting
gone bad. The snitch, Andy Strassmeir, was one of your trusted lieutenants.
We also know that since the search for John Doe #2 became "John Doe
Who?", the FBI has been covering up for their hapless ATF cousins
in the interest of continued Clinton Administration survival. It is ironic
to consider, is it not, how loudly you condemn the immoral, godless, and
unconstitutional Clinton Administration while at the same time you support
their continued existence with your silence? Clinton himself traces the
revival of his failed first term to the Oklahoma City bombing. Look how
much we have to be thankful to you and Elohim City for (beyond the 168
innocent victims of the bomb and growing list of dead witnesses)! You've
more than a whiff of hypocrisy about you, Reverend-- it is a positive stench.
But FBI agents, even Directors, change. So do administrations. Just
before the change comes, they'll dump you like a hot potato. And if I'm
right, I'll get to pitch my vacation tent at Oklahoma's newest roadside
rest: Edye's Acres. It's all up to you Reverend. Can FBI hymn-singers protect
you from depositions-under-oath in the Smith civil suit? Place your bet.
And if you don't think gambling is Christian, you've been doing it since
the 19th of April, 1995. Ask yourself if you think your run of luck is
going to hold.
We here at the John Doe Times stand ready to chronicle the survival,
or the fall, of John-Doe-Ville. As its titular "mayor", you will
receive future isues of our modest effort with my compliments. How else
will you keep up with the antics of your "Doe-boy", Michael Brescia?
