However, charges leveled against them on Friday, in connection to the death of a missing 3-year-old boy, remained.  Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the boy's father, and Leveille were charged with abuse of a child resulting in the death of a child and conspiracy to commit abuse of a child, Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe announced.  Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, pictured, and Jany Leveille were hit with new charges, Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe announced Friday. (Taos County Sheriff's Office).  Leveille, pictured, and Siraj Ibn Wahhaj were charged with abuse of a child resulting in the death of a child and conspiracy to commit abuse of a child, Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe announced Friday. (Taos County Sheriff's Office).  The five suspects were arrested by authorities after an Aug. 3 raid following a monthslong search investigating the disappearance of Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, a 3-year-boy with severe medical issues who went missing from Georgia in December. The occupants of the compound were "most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief," an official said at the time.  Taos County Sheriff's deputies discovered 11 children at the compound, who were taken into the custody of state child-welfare workers. On Aug. 6, a child’s remains were found on the property. https://www.foxnews.com/us/3-extremist-muslim-new-mexico-compound-suspects-released-after-judge-drops-all- charges. 2019/12/01 Article-2018/11/05-Black Female Witchcraft The Atlantic (2018/11/05) The Witches of Baltimore: Young black women are leaving Christianity and embracing African witchcraft in digital covens. By Sigal Samuel https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2018/11/black-millennials-african-witchcraft-christianity/574393/ Excerpt: “We may not be Christian here, but we still pray,” said a woman dressed entirely in white as she addressed a large audience of African American women. Standing behind a lectern, speaking in the cadences of a preacher, she added, “I understand God more now, doing what I’m doing, than I ever did in the Church.” The call and response that followed (“No one’s going to protect us but who?” “Us!”) was reminiscent of church—but this was no traditional sermon. The speaker, Iyawo Orisa Omitola, was giving the keynote address last month at the third annual Black Witch Convention, which brought together some 200 women in a Baltimore reception hall. The small but growing community points to the hundreds of young black women who are leaving Christianity in favor of their ancestors’ African spiritual traditions, and finding a sense of power in the process. Nominate a nonprofit for The Renewal Awards Help a local organization win $40,000 in funding and make an even bigger impact. Nominate Over the past decade, white Millennials have embraced witchcraft in droves. Now a parallel phenomenon is emerging among black Millennials. While their exact numbers are difficult to gauge, it’s clear that African American pop culture has started to reflect the trend. In the music industry alone, there’s Beyoncé’s allusion to an African goddess in Lemonade and at the Grammys; Azealia Banks’s declaration that she practices brujería (a Spanish term for witchcraft); and Princess Nokia’s hit “Brujas,” in which she tells white witches, “Everything you got, you got from us.”The call and response that followed (“No one’s going to protect us but who?” “Us!”) was reminiscent of church—but this was no traditional sermon. The speaker, Iyawo Orisa Omitola, was giving the keynote address last month at the third annual Black Witch Convention, which brought together some 200 women in a Baltimore reception hall. The small but growing community points to the hundreds of young black women who are leaving Christianity in favor of their ancestors’ …African spiritual traditions, and finding a sense of power in the process. African American witchcraft originated in West Africa, the birthplace of Yoruba, a set of religious traditions focused on reverence for ancestors and worship of a vast pantheon of deities known as orishas. Those traditions accompanied West Africans who were brought to the Americas as slaves, and were eventually combined with Western religions, such as Catholicism, that many slaves were pushed to embrace. By the early 19th century, Cuban Santeria, Brazilian Candomblé, Haitian Vodou, and other syncretistic faiths had emerged as a result. In cities like New Orleans, voodoo (slightly different from Haitian Vodou) and hoodoo, which also descend from West African faiths, grew popular. These practices—which often involve manipulating candles, incense, or water to achieve a desired result—may have helped give slaves some sense of power, however minimal. Modern black witches are practicing Yoruba-based faiths, with a few Millennial touches. They build altars to ancestors so they can seek their advice on everything from romance to professional advancement, cast spells using emoji to help banish depression, surround themselves with crystals in the hope that they will relieve stress, and burn sage to cleanse their apartments of negative energy. …The internet is almost becoming like a hush harbor for these witches of color,” Guillory said, referring to places where slaves gathered in secret to practice their religions in antebellum America. Online, an avatar or a handle allows women to speak freely. A popular Tumblr promotes inspirational images of black witches and Facebook groups for the women have thousands of members each, while some have even developed smartphone apps. Some young women at the Baltimore convention told me their parents had long hid their grandmothers’ or great- grandmothers’ involvement with witchcraft—a decision the Millennials resented, until they realized their parents may have felt the need to suppress any talk of magic because their ancestors were harshly punished for their rituals. New Orleans, for example, saw sweeping arrests of voodooists in the 19th century. https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2018/11/black-millennials-african-witchcraft-christianity/574393/ 2019/11/19 Tribal Employee (2019/08/26)Navajo women cops and Navajo witchcraft https://tribalemployee.blogspot.com/2019/08/navajo-women-cops-and-navajo-witchcraft.html  Excerpt: ("On a vast reservation, female Navajo officers patrol with bulletproof vests and protective amulets")  It talks about how the female Navajo Nation police officers deal with Navajo-specific issues such as lack of manpower and witchcraft.  Navajo police: The reservation is about the size of West Virginia with about 27,000 square miles.  It is huge.  There are only about 200 police officers to provide law enforcement for this huge area.  The police density is about 2 police officers per 1000 people.  Outside the reservation in the United States, the police density is about 3.5 police officers per 1000 people.  Compared to the rest of America, the Navajo Police Department is severely lacking police power. No wonder many areas of the Navajo reservation is like the wild wild west.  Wild West:  People do whatever they want.  They drink, get drunk, get violent, and 911 calls start coming to the police dispatcher.  These Dine terrorize the community and the people live in fear.  Under these circumstances, the crime rate is high, most of it caused by alcohol.  There is much violent crimes, sex crimes, and substance crimes.  Unique values: The article also shows how the Navajo people have their own unique values.  For instance, a family member died and the family member demanded that the female police officer remove the body from the house to somehow make the house less contaminated.  But the police officer cannot just remove the body.  She has to follow protocol.  The evidence needs to be preserved.  There needs to be coroner, etc.  The family should not be drinking in the first place.  But it is hard because the area is high in poverty and unemployment.  People just drink to pass time and because they are bored.  It is hard being a police officer in the rez.    Witchcraft The article also tells of how the police officers experience witchcraft with some of the Navajo population.  The police officers experience sickness.  The particular female police officer does cedar to protect herself.  Our Cheis and Masanis use to warn of these types of situations.  They would advise us to protect ourselves.  https://tribalemployee.blogspot.com/2019/08/navajo-women-cops-and-navajo-witchcraft.html  2019/11/16-17 New Mexico Sexual Cults Fence Lake Area/The Greens & The Rivers Religious sexual cults in New Mexico - Fence Lake Area - The Greens (Lila and Jim Green; The Rivers) Have been in Sacramento, tribe The Bears in Montana, Salvation Army in Miami, Florida; Klamath Falls, OR, Fence Lake and Gallup, NM; KRQE 2018/09/26  Aggressive Christianity cult leader gets 72 years in prison.

Wikipedia There seems to be a helpful run-down of the origins and geographic changes of the Greens here: https colon //en dot wikipedia dot org/wiki/Aggressive_Christianity_Missionary_Training_Corps Excerpt:  In 1989, Jodi Hernandez was part of a group of newspeople that reported on the Aggressive Christians from March to September through KOVR-TV, CBS channel 13 Sacramento.[16] In December 1999, Darren White, former secretary of the Department of Public Safety for New Mexico, and then reporter for KRQE, CBS channel 13, Albuquerque, reported on the Greens. On November 4, 2005, Jim Maniaci, of the Gallup Independent's Cibola County Bureau in Grants, reported that a co-leader of a religious group was jailed on an aggravated battery with a deadly weapon charge.[20] In June, 2006, Annie McCormick of KRQE, CBS channel 13, Albuquerque, also investigated the Greens with reports from former members and families.[21] In April 2012, the National Geographic Channel featured the accounts of Maura Schmierer, and of her daughter Rebekah, of their experiences with the group.[22] Season 2, episode 4 of Dangerous Persuasions on Investigation Discover Channel tells Maura Schmierer's story.

The issue there is his past w/ Alaska Army Guard and being in the police dept. that investigated the Guard’s scandal.  La Familia (being added to Cartels) came up in connection w/ The Guard and a leader there who had worked at APD.  Pay attention to possible related cartel links between AK and NM. On history: I recommend people studying modern US/Middle Eastern warfare and other forms of warfare involving US operational strategies (including counter-terrorism), read up on World War II leadership for tips on overall war efforts,  a feeling for specific battles, and to better identify how that generation thought and operated. The “old school” approach included a well grounded common sense and spunky drive, but also creativity when it was needed. Every Man a Hero: As an extension of this theme, the 2019 book Every Man a Hero: A Memoir of D-Day, The First Wave of Omaha Beach and a World at War by Arnold “Ray” Lambert is recommended.  Lambert is 98 years old this year and was one of the few remaining combat veterans of his generation honored by Trump this year in June.  He was a medic on D-Day in the 1st Division, 16th regiment of the United States Army. The book has good maps and background information which takes us into the Army world and the key war zones. 2019/10/20 Navajo Issues in the Farmington area Several articles: some Navajo Nation lawsuits;  separate topics - one dated in 2010, the other in 2016.

By Alysa Landry https://www.nhonews.com/news/2016/sep/06/judge-sentences-11-in-navajo-nation-corruption-ca/ Excerpt: A Window Rock, Arizona district court judge recently handed down sentences to 11 defendants for the criminal misuse of hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Navajo Nation's discretionary fund. Four more individuals are scheduled for sentencing by the end of September. All 15 defendants - two former Navajo Nation Council speakers, 11 former council delegates and two legislative staff  members - pleaded guilty or no contest to charges that included conspiracy, fraud, bribery, submitting false vouchers and conflict of interest. All of the cases resulted in conviction and all defendants entered into plea agreements after admitting to taking discretionary dollars for personal or family use, according to court records. Delegates have access to discretionary funds, or slush funds, to provide assistance to constituents with emergency needs, including single parents, elders and families who need burial funds. A total of 18 defendants - including three who were previously sentenced - helped themselves to a total of $850,000 between 2005 and 2009. Indian Country News (2010/11) Navajo tribe signs memo with Farmington officials. By Tim Korte https://www.indiancountrynews.com/index.php/news/9-news-from-through-out-indian-country/10500-navajo- tribe-signs-memo-with-farmington-officials Excerpt: The Navajo Nation signed a historic government-to-government agreement with Farmington city officials last week, with both sides calling it a positive step toward improving race relations in a community where friction has existed for decades.  The agreement was sealed after an hourlong blessing ceremony by a Navajo medicine man at City Hall, and it makes Farmington the third community on traditional Navajo lands but outside the boundaries of the reservation to reach such an agreement with the tribe.   The latest accord also comes against the backdrop of federal hate-crimes charges filed last week against three white men from Farmington who are accused of branding a swastika on the arm of a mentally disabled Navajo man last spring.  "Being the mere human beings we are, we have many shortcomings," said Navajo Human Rights Commission chairman Duane "Chili" Yazzie. "I'd like to think the human relationship problems we've had over the years have really subsided. Back in the '60s and '70s, the relationships were aggravated by physical violence and even death."  Mayor Tommy Roberts said the largely symbolic agreement won't eliminate prejudice in Farmington or on the Navajo Nation, but it shows the community's commitment to continue reaching for solutions.  He said the final document took a year to produce and told a gathering of tribal and city officials that he was asked several times why the negotiations were so important.  "It's a very simple answer," Roberts said. "It's important because we're neighbors. We're connected politically. We're connected socially. We're connected economically. We must recognize that as neighbors, we must treat one another with respect and tolerance." Farmington, a predominantly white community of about 45,000 residents, is a center for oil and natural gas production as well as an economic hub, drawing shoppers from southwestern Colorado and across the Navajo lands of New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. Earlier this year, the Navajo Human Rights Commission signed similar memoranda with the New Mexico towns of Grants and Gallup. Drafts are in the works for Aztec and Bloomfield. Next year, commissioners plan to pursue agreements in Arizona for Flagstaff, Holbrook, Winslow and Page, along with Cortez, Colo.   Racial tensions in Farmington peaked in May 1974, when the beaten and burned bodies of three Navajo men were found north of town. Three white high school students were linked to the crime and sent to reform school, outraging the Navajo community and prompting protests in town. "We are wanting to move forward and improve our relationship," Roberts said. Yazzie agreed, saying race relations have improved dramatically in Farmington since the 1970s and the city has made important steps, such as establishment of a community relations commission to review racial complaints and provide education and training. Yazzie said he has experienced racism in Farmington but cautioned that he knows some Navajos who are prejudiced toward whites. In either case, he said those who discriminate are in the minority and urged people to remember what they have in common. "We have had good memories, good relationships, strong relationships through the years," Yazzie said. 2019/10/18 Chris Oskins Added material - use as a teaching tool as an example of possible skewed information (watch for antics) on one side or another involving a  conflict between races/cultures:  See: Oskins, Chris 2019/10/17  Highlights of Certain News Topics:  Laura Loomer vs. Twitter, Cair; cartels in Central America (Northern Triangle), Illegal Immigration in New Mexico; Somali terrorism Minnesota 2016; Trump and El Salvador 2018 Breitbart (2019/04/19) Laura Loomer files lawsuit against Twitter, Cair https://www.breitbart dot com/tech/2019/04/19/laura-loomer-files-lawsuit-against-twitter-cair/ CFR            Central America’s Turbulent Northern Triangle https://www.cfr.org/backgrounder/central-americas-turbulent-northern-triangle ABQ Journ Illegal immigration surging in New Mexico https://www.abqjournal.com/866089/illegal-immigration-surging-in-nm.html Washington Examiner 2016/11/15 9 Somali men in Minnesota sentenced [2016] on terrorism charges   https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/9-somali-men-in-minnesota-sentenced-this-week-on-terrorism-charges The Atlantic (2018/01) Trump and El Salvador https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2018/01/trump-and-el-salvador/550955/ Excerpt:  “The United States was complicit,” Todd Greentree, who was a young political officer at the American embassy at the time, told me recently in an interview for a documentary about the massacre. Greentree noted that the massacre was carried out by the Atlacatl Battalion, which had just completed a three-month counterinsurgency training course in the United States. That training was also supposed to instill respect for human rights. The El Mozote operation was the battalion’s very first after completing the course. When reports of the massacre first appeared in The New York Times and The Washington Post, the American ambassador, Deane Hinton, sent Greentree and a military attaché, Marine Corps Major John McKay, to investigate. They concluded there had been a massacre, and that the Atlacatl battalion was responsible, Greentree told me. https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2018/01/trump-and-el-salvador/550955/ 2019/10/11 Christopher Blea New Mexico police officer who has moved around and gotten in trouble is in the news again in Rio Arriba County now.  There are two different Christopher Blea’s in/related to police in NM; just realized this here on 10/11/2019 and am sorting it out.  Have made two separate insertions. 2019/09/24-25  David Black re-inserted today 9/25; David Black Sheriff Otero County article-2019/05/30-warning of border patrol manpower shortage - Repeated Insert KOB (2019/05/30) https://www.kob.com/albuquerque-news/otero-county-sheriff-talks-border-crisis-in-editorial/5370420/ key points: Otero County southern part of state borders Texas but has highways linked to Mexican border thru next door Dona Ana County; key highways are 54 and 70; reduced manpower with officers sent to cover Albuquerque’s shortage as of May 2019 when sheriff’s editoral went out in Las Cruces TImes; 2019/09/20 These are being added or fleshed out on the border page: Mexpro  note from Police Factor:  this is being added as an addition to our knowledge of NM borders in general (2017/08/21) Where to Cross the New Mexico/Mexican Border Posted August 21, 2017 by Roxanna Brock McDade & filed under Border Crossing. https://www.mexpro.com/blog/cross-new-mexicomexican-border Excerpt: There are only three border crossings into Mexico from New Mexico, and all cross into the Mexico state of Chihuahua in the western half of the state.

There is no better word to describe it than “epidemic,” insofar as it fits the epidemiological model from the Centers for Disease Control: this phenomenon occurs when “an agent and susceptible hosts are present in adequate numbers, and the agent can be effectively conveyed from a source to the susceptible hosts.” The “agent” in this case is hysteria over Trump’s presidency, and the “susceptible hosts” are a slipshod, reckless, and breathtakingly gullible media class that spread the hysteria around like—well, like a virus. It is difficult to adequately sum up the breadth of this epidemic, chiefly because it keeps growing: day after day, even hour after hour, the media continue to broadcast, spread, promulgate, publicize, and promote fake news on an industrial scale. It has become a regular part of our news cycle… https://thefederalist.com/2017/02/06/16-fake-news-stories-reporters-have-run-since-trump-won/ 2019/09/11 9/11 in 2019 2019/09/11 some additions across day Never forget 9/11!  Remember the way the American public was lied to in the media before, during and after it!  Corporate driven media is corrupt!  We most definitely have been lied to and also have had certain key facts omitted from our media.  There is no doubt about this whatsoever.  Real Americans will continue to sniff out the odd and malicious undercurrents be hind the war on American soil.   Understand we have to think along various trajectories to sense how the enemy operated and still operates.  Please do your part in spreading the word on stealth and overt jihad; the links between certain strands of communism, socialism and Islamic extremism; the fact certain Jews, but not all Jews, can be in on this, and to know the difference without lumping all Jews together. It is important to understand that there have been similar operations since at least the Vietnam War and likely are behind why we lost - or that the world was told we lost as part of some hidden back room table agreement - and the fact a lot of the games against the USA have been and continue to be run through American two year and four year colleges, and research based universities; that one of the wars on America is financially driven to get it to squander its resources and to leak monies to non-white civil rights groups and their internationalist anti-American allies; that these groups include Hispanic, Native American, Asian and black groups, but that not all persons of color are guilty or complicit; that some of the games include phony or exaggerated lawsuits and unfair grant allocations to non-whites on college campuses.  It also includes loan sharks and non-reciprocal trade agreements in which other countries get more and give little in return.   The games include arts savvy, a tendency for creative and wacky ways that go outside the box and work around our systems.
