Re: “Minuteman Work Continues in Southern Arizona

I find it very troubling that Mercer and Simcox, months after saying that they "turned in" Shawna Forde to the authorities, are espousing the same call to arms that she was: for people to come to the border "locked and loaded!" This is the kettle calling the pot black!
Shawna is a patriot and saw what was needed at the border. Perhaps, way too late, both Simcox and Mercer saw the same thing. So, why aren't they helping Shawna with her case? She is innocent!

Re: “Luck and Fear

I don't understand why anyone in a known trafficking area wouldn't keep a firearm near the door. They shouldn't have to be told to by a deputy! I've lived in Hereford, in Cochise County, and even though I wasn't right on top of a trail, I had illegals passing through periodically. Most of the time I didn't see them; I only found what they left behind. Anyone living in a rural area needs to keep protection handy at all times. If times get hard in the cities and the economy falls apart, people will stream out of the cities and head for the country. Either way, it's best to be prepared.

Re: “Murder in the Desert

Rena, why don't you tell the good readers why you will not be a witness at Shawna's trial? Tell them about all your psychiatric baggage which will come up! Yet you still want your 15 minutes of fame. You gave birth to 9 kids, abused all of them, had most of them removed, and you want us to believe YOU? No charges will ever be filed against Shawna in the CA cases, which we suspect are being used as an insurance scam. More hot air to try to smear Shawna...

Re: “Murder in the Desert

I was never contacted, by email, or any other method, for this story. The website,, is run by the Committee for Justice for Shawna Forde, not by me personally. I had no idea who Chuck Stonex was, even during the Spencer BBQ. When I found out he was going to see Shawna, I asked if I could accompany him, as I had corresponded with Shawna, but never met her in person. The more he talks, the more Chuck bloviates. He is such a "celebrity" now that no MM want to have anything to do with him. Between the time I first became acquainted with Shawna in Jan 09, and when she was busted, there was no talk between us of a book deal. And Shawna's biological egg-donor and half-brother? Don't make me laugh! What a sorry bunch of sleazy, abusive, loser welfare-cheats! Shawna was the only motivated, successful achiever in the whole bunch! Why don't you try some truth? Read "What the Media Didn't Tell You" on the website. You might learn something truthful, althought it might not be as much fun as continuing to bash a dedicated Christian patriot.
