National Socialist American Labor Party (NSALP) Activist Michael Cook Tried And Convicted Of "Illegal Possession Of A Ballistic Vest"

Most people convicted of violent felonies know that federal law precludes them from gun ownership, at least for a period of time. But what they may not know is that ex-felons are also barred from owning body armor. In fact, as recently as January 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the federal law barring people convicted of a violent felony from owning body armor.

On Thursday November 10th, 2011, Michael Cook, identified as a member of the National Socialist American Labor Party (NSALP), was sentenced to six months in prison and four months home confinement after he was convicted of illegal possession of a ballistic vest. He was convicted by a jury after 30 minutes deliberation in April 2011. Cook had purchased the vest at a gun show in Harrisburg in March 2007 after receiving repeated death threats. U.S. Attorney Peter Smith explained to the media that because of Cook's prior convictions on communicating terroristic threats and destroying property, he is prohibited from owning body armor. Additionally, WHTM Channel 27 reports that Cook's sentencing judge became concerned after hearing tapes in which Cook made "worrisome" comments to investigators. He reportedly told an FBI informant that he wanted people to know who he was by the "sting of his bullets." The sentencing could also be partially retaliatory for the fact that Cook and other NSALP activists distributed 1,000 NSALP flyers in March 2011, which sparked one complaint and caused Springettsbury Township Police to file a report with the Anti-Defamation League.

Michael Cook claims he was not aware that he was legally barred from protecting himself by purchasing a ballistic vest. He maintains that the ruling violates his constitutional rights as outlined in the commerce clause. Public defender Thomas Thornton previously stated that the vest was actually nothing more than a shell, unable to completely stop a bullet, so there was no real way for Cook to know that he was purchasing something illegal. Too bad a jury which knew nothing about the Fully Informed Jury Association did not agree. Nevertheless, Cook believes being in prison will strengthen his efforts, saying that "persecution is good for us sometimes". However, this was not a crime against a person or property, but an administrative crime against procedure, so Michael Cook should not be viewed as a danger to the public. Unfortunately, the principle of strict liability, which holds that ignorance of the law is no defense, is also applied to administrative crimes, and juries tend to swallow it.

After the initial indictment in November 2010, U.S. Attorney spokeswoman Heidi Havens explained that the disqualifying felony convictions on communicating terroristic threats and destroying property were actually incurred in Minnesota, although she offered no further explanation. Cook's greater claim to fame took place in 2002 when he helped organize a rally to bring Rev. Matt Hale with World Church of the Creator. The rally, at which Hale addressed 50 people at the Martin Library, turned into a major brouhaha attracting a total of 600 people, including White activists, antifa, cops and some ordinary community members.

The NSALP has not responded to this latest development. They are one of four national socialist organizations in the United States, the others being the NSM, the ANP, and the ANSP (listed in order of perceived prominence). The NSALP claims to be active in 30 states. One of their more prominent members is Ryan J. Murdough, who ran unsuccessfully for the New Hampshire state legislature as a Republican in 2010 and who was actually boycotted by the Republican Party; he's now the NSALP's National Political Director.

Micheal Cook is a NUT. I have been requesting him to remove me from his idiotic mailing list since - forever. He hasn't. Is there ANY group out there, that Cook hasn't 'joined', or tried to - then popped off to a new one? I recently got a mailing from him promoting some "American Fascist Party" led by "Commander Aron" or something - if Cook is typical of "alp" membership - no wonder their mighty poohbah has gone "missing" the past month or more. Really 'AA', you have a decent site here and provide a lot of news and views - but, is it REALLY necessary to post up EVERY pathertic "story" that pops up about some moron in this bowel-movement who through his own dysfuctionalism gets his ass in trouble? You as well as I know that this "movement" contains a lot of freaks and losers - you've stated it yourself on occasion - why publicize them as if "they were sincerely one of us"? Its NOT as if they were Political POW's like the Order Comrades. I'm sure you get my point. Sincerely, Rocky J. Suhayda, Chairman www.AmericanNaziParty.com Hail Victory! 88!

Old rule of thumb: If you want to play the game you better know the rules.

Anchorage Activist said...

Rocky, the real point of this post is to expose an absolutely ludicrous interpretation and extension of a law.

The law was originally intended to deny violent felons the right to bear arms until they showed they had sufficiently rehabilitated. However, to deny a felon the right to wear body armor for self-protection is ludicrous. I was not aware of this -- and others need to be made aware of it as well.

Your input may explain the reason why Richard Miller hasn't talked up the case on the NSALP website. Maybe Miller wants nothing to do with Cook either.

BTW, excellent Talkshoe program on Saturday. Most informative and educational.

I thought Rocky had left this site for good. Didn't he say he was done with it months ago, saying he was tired of all the crap talking or whatever? Remember, he claimed to have started that rumor that he had been in prison for years for shooting black drug dealers. I guess he wanted to see what would happen. Apparently, since some people believed it, and ran with it, Rocky got pissed.

He said he (and I assume the other ANP supporters) were done with White Reference. But now he's back.

I'm glad Rocky is back. At least he talks sense unlike the other fu*ktards in the pro-White Movement.

NSALP Illinois says:
Some people here need therapy. The issue with Cook is one of him having a vest, NOT a weapon, not stealing from fellow Aryans, not bombing anyone or anything, or engaging in sex crimes. Cook did engage in real activism, unlike Rocky and the ANP.

Interesting, when a NSM, or ANP Members have issues, those groups first action is to say the person is not or never was a member. The NSALP has not done this and does not make statements about it's Members or Suporters to anyone, that is the true and honorable National Socialist way. Rocky has yet to address the Nick Chappell theft and other issues regarding the ANP, so he should not throw rocks from his mother's house of broken glass.

By the way A.A., the NSALP, in 2011so far has distributed over 12,000 flyers in 15 States, you have ignored that. The NSALP has more active members in more States than the ANP. The NSALP does not have to beg for cash and does not sell its newsletter or propaganda. In fact the NSALP has a support system for its Members. The NSALP does not compromise on Race, Homosexuality, or Communism.

Remember, the ANP supported the communists, perverts and sex offenders at Occupy Wall Street, while the NSALP and other true NS said hell NO.

Anonymous said...

True NS said no to Wall Street Occupiers??? Isn't that a bag full of a shi*t. The Illinois NSALP is trying to balloon themselves to look good but one pop of a pin and its all hot air that ithers to nothing. Why doesn't the NSALP address the issue of how it was started by a Jew:

NSALP is a false flag operation bitching about real NS group (and yes, I mean both NSM and ANP.) It was started by a jew agent-provocateur, and it is a honey pot for sincere decent WN. BTW, anyone knows who "chairman Miller" is? Nobody ever heard about him. He seems to be a shady salesman trying to push his questionable agenda by ...writing BS letters and putting them online (this "tradition was started by late Mr. "Krebs AKA Martin AKA Lilienthal.) Nobody ever saw him in person, same could be said about "Miller" (if that is his real name, of course.) BTW, "chairman" Miller, when are you going to have your first "national meeting?" No, your online "sessions" do not count. It seems to me you have been bitching about it since 2008 LOL. It's kind of hard to pull when you have no members, right?

Sara said...

Question: How does the NSALP know it has more members than the ANP? They must have xray vision or be telepathic! haha That was an arrogant statement the Illinois NSALP made by an arrogant ignoramus.

Notice that he totally avoids the Cook issue and sneakily skirts around it like its okay. Reminds me of the NSM doing the same thing when that 10 year old boy killed his abusive father.

My opinion, the NSALP is a false flag operation and warning signs should be blinking to anyone wanting to be associated with it.

"4:55PM" is 'Sid Gilmore' the ONLY "alp'er" in the entire state of Illinois. His movement 'history' goes back to his former fuhrer Fat Harold Covington when Tubby started up his version of the 'NSWPP Mark II' scam back in the 80's. HC managed to gather together a few do-nothing nut jobs along with a handful of self-hating jews to pose fuhrer over. Gilmore was one of them. This 'Millers' disappearance now for almost two months shouldn't surprise anyone. 'Lillienthal' did the same thing before, heck he's probaly doing it again. Its his timely visit to israel. LMAO!!!

Usually, the ones who scream False Flag and froth at the mouth like the little people here are doing are either the false flags themselves or feel threatened.

I have ben around for a long time and it is true what 4:55 says, the ANP and others always say " oh he was never a Member" when a Comrade runs a foul of zog. The NSALP, and I am NOT a member of any group, shows me they are profesional by saying nothing, why should they. I do know that there are lot of old time Movement people, going back to former Comrades of Pastor Miles in the NSALP, so they are not a false front. The NSALP just don't get involved in the movement drama bullshit that has bogged down Schoep and Mullet and that Rocky so enjoys so long as he is not the emphasis.

Amen 5:57, the bullshit has to stop. Every day we see it in the movement. Sadly it is always the ANPers, we see from Bowles newest crap that he has been the one on this blog writing most of the crap. The NSALP has a lot of quality people, like Murdough, Gilmore and others and if they have people that were with Pastor Miles, then that speakes even more for them. The little games of calling others jews because they cut into membership pledges is soooo old and the ANP has become so nasty and vile that I doubt that anyone really listens to them. When a group is near defunct and bankrupt of ideas, all they do is attack others and that is what the ANP has been doing for the last 2 years.

Has there ever been proof of a flyer drop by the ANP? NO Never seen a news article of a ANP flyer found. Seen several about NSALP in PA, Wi, NV, Ca, and AZ

Call Mr. Cook and the NSALP names all you want, but they are doing things. I also see real politics on the NSALP site and them fighting our enemies, all I see the ANP doing is attacking other Whites, that would seem to be the actions of a false front.

4:18AM is right, I do not join groups anymore because of the shit storm from those that call themselves "long timers" or "old timers" or the "old guard". I do go to the NSALP web site because they do present real NS material, they don't get into the shit talk. They have been trash talked for writing letters, I bet those who trash talk them cannot write or put a constructive NS thought together. I also have never seen the NSALP require money of its comrades and from I have read, they actualy pull together and help their people. They are the real deal and that must make the real false fronts, wanna-bees, and cry babies shit their pants. I have also never seen anything on their site running away from comrades either, nor have I seen a NSALP in the news for being a pervert or ripping off anyone unlike the other store-front groups, that is to be respected.

The article says Cook AND OTHER members of th NSALP handed out Flyers, looks like the NSALP has an active operation and the cops reported the NSALP to the ADL.

I have not seen anything like this coming from an ANP "snowflake" operation. Maybe its time to stop bashing the NSALP. Why should the NSALP say anything about one of their comrades trying to defend himself???

Who has snowflake operations! The ANP or the NSALP? The ANP is getting ready to speak to high school students in three weeks for the fourth year in a row upon invitation. The NSALP doesn't do that! The ANP is hosting it's 9th Annual Yuletide Party in three weeks. The NSALP doesn't do that. The ANP has a public indoor rally every year (fourth year coming up in a row). The NSALP doesn't do that. The ANP has a chairman
24/7. The NSALP definitely doesn't have that. What does the NSALP do? Bitch and moan about the ANP being so active and good and doing activities that mean something.

Anonymous said...

There has NEVER been any verification that the ANP has spoken at any High School. In today's climate, some parent or teacher would have made it public and some local paper would have reported "Nazi's speak at local High School". This has never happened. Also the write ups from "students" posted on ANP Rags are nearly identical year after year. Sorry, the ANP's representation just is not credible, just like their "snowflake" operations. The one opertion they excell at is attacking other WN and NS groups exclussively, day after dy, month after month and year after year all the while banging the drum for cash for non-existent HQ operations.

Anchorage Activist said...

Anonymous 10:36 P.M: Perhaps the schools involved chose not to publicize it for fear they'd be targeted by do-gooders and anti-racists.

Anonymous said...

A.A., your logic does not hold water, the kids talk, and talk gets out and parents would ask questions, etc, etc. The school would not have to publicize. Simple word of mouth. Bowles and the ANP have made this claim for like 3 years and like 10:36PM says, the quotes and writes ups from the "students" that have been posted by the ANP, year after year, have been remarkably similar, have these kids not graduated or is Bowles stalking them from grade to grade?? Bottom line, the only place we hear about ANP activities is from the ANP, unlike the NSM, ANSP and NSALP, whose events, flyer drops and such are independantly verified and reported by media and they are atacked by zog-cops who report them to the ADL and SPLC.

I am so sick of hearing about Taylor Bolwes being allowed once a year to be able to speak to one highschool. Big fucking deal. If he was doing it once every few days, it would be different.

I doubt he is really going but if he is, can you imagine a worse person short of a pedo to talk to children? Bolwes believes the movement owes him humdreds of thousands of dollars so he can run for president. He probably sits in front of those kids and yammers on about how he will get elected and his vague NS views. Then surely he has to talk about other NS groups, as if the ANP is actually one of them. He might as well tell them about manbearpig.

Paul M. said...

Let's correct the issue. The ANP attacks only bad apples in the pro-White Movement that mislead people like the invisible leader of the NSALP, and the invisible activities of the NSALP, and the false promises of the NSALP for this and that which never occurs.

Notice the NSALP blabber-mouths keep saying the NSALP leader goes here and there. Well, that's fine. But the rest of the pro-White movement has never seen him. Why? Probably because its Krebs with a new name and identity trying to fool people again.

Oh, big deal about NSALP flyer drops. I guess that's more than public rallies like the ANP does.

The ANP does score high points over the NSALP in my book because they do high school talks upon invitation. Does any high school invite the NSALP? Noooooo. Because the NSALP are newbie bullshitters and liars. This proves the ANP has brains and doesn't follow the "goose-stepping look a me acting like NSM tactics" of the NSALP.

Poor NSALP cry-babies. The ANP is smart enough not to expose their schools where they speak so the NSALP can wiggle their pathetic selves into it. Awwww.

Enuf said about the maggots.

So the thinking is, unless the enemy 'reports' on some activity, it doesn't occur? More than likely they report on some 'activities' because they show NS/WN in a poor light. The ANP's yearly National Conference held in the hall in SC has never been 'reported' on by the jews-media. Odd? Not really, we wouldn't allow them to in to spy on our members, like other groups do. Distribute 'Help White Workers from Judeo-Capitalist Banksters!' OR 'Kill the Niggers-White Power!' and guess which one they will report on. Hail the ANP! www.ANP14.com 88!

10:36PM says this in part about the ANP:

"all the while banging the drum for cash for non-existent HQ operations".

But look what the NSALP sigh says on its MEMBER Page about begging for money like Jews:

THE PARTY NEEDS FINANCIAL SUPPORT IF IT IS TO SUCCEED:

"This is something everyone can do in some manner. If you cannot become publicly involved then you should you assist the Party financially so others who can will have the tools and resources to get the message out. In politics, it is true, 'money is the mother's milk'. The NSALP has made the Policy decision to not require membership dues from Members. This makes your financial support critical, to the extent that you are able. The Party does consider $25.00 a month to be within everyone's means. In your membership Application, the NSALP has requested that all Members make Financial Pledges. As members you may make your Pledges as follows: Well-concealed cash. Checks or Money Orders."

Geez! 25 bucks a mmonth they want!!! Talk about ripoffs.

Anonymous said...

I agree with 4:52AM. The ANP doesn't play that bullcr*p game of "look at me" and "make a story about this because I'm a Thrid Reich Princess". haha

The Jews only expose negative stories about NS. Literature drops are even negative in itself because it looks like a "sneaky"
tactic to the masses.

I believe the ANP is being invited to high schools and do speak. If it wasn't and exposed it would cause them great harm and I don't believe Rocky would permit a lie like that unlike others.

I guess the ANP Public Christmas Party doesn't happen either (for the past 9 years either). lol

I read The Blog of Bowles and he does it several times a year speaking to students. He probably does it more than he reports so it doesn't make the others look so bad in what they don't do.

If the nsalp doesn't require members to pay regular dues, they don't exist. Any organization that takes in 'free-bee's' as members is desperate. Why don't they simply take names out of the phone book and list them as members, they would probably be as useful as the current crop they have, if any. What a joke!

I went to the NSALP website for the first time and noticed that they listed a whole string of events that they were holding in 2011.

It's disconcerting reading National Socialists bashing one another. The energy used could have been better served. There is little truth and a lot of emotion getting expressed. If National Socialism is going to be a force in America we must first stop the fratricide. If the organizations disagree, do be it. The real enemy is not the NSM, ANP, or the NSALP. The real enemy has a hooked nose and is rubbing his hands together as brothers fight. Take the high road, Comrades, and let's concentrate on the enemy and not our brothers. We have argued and fought too long. Cut your brother slack and renew the fight against our people's enemy!

No Sid, its apparent that you have not studied Mein Kampf very much, if at all. Hitler states clearly, that the REASON that there are various groups that may appear 'similar', only means that there are fundimental differences between those groups which cannot be overcome by simply "uniting" them together. He also goes on about the "eight cripples arm in arm, do not make one warrior..." His advice is the "Julius Striecher" alternative - where the weaker, less effective groups disband and BECOME a PART of the more successful organization. In this case, the ANP. The ANP existed long before the idea of the "alp" came into existance around a campfire - any sincere NS - who wasn't looking to boost his ego by becoming a "Mighty Fuhrer" overnite, by launching a poorly done website, and buying up others ( like that pathetic hate-site, 'Zogs-Nightmare' ) would have BECOME a PART of another NS organization, BEFORE he started up a new one. What the "alp" did, was FRACTIONALIZE the NS Struggle even MORE - wouldn't you say? And I state this once again - just "because" someone slaps on a Swastika - DOESN'T make them an NS. The so-called "nsm" is a perfect example. They ARE a "white-power" group - they obviously are NOT a National Socialist organization, anymore than "alp" by re-hashing the old 3rd Reich propaganda and achievements like a re-enacter does. "Winter Help" indeed! Did the "alp" EVER had an origonal thought of its own since its inception? Well, maybe that $25 a month member pledge - thats the HIGHEST I've seen in the entire movement, and I've been around since 1967. You sure your "leader" isn't George Bush re-incarnated? He was out of touch with the realities of White Working class people too! Sincerely, Rocky J. Suhayda, Chairman www.AmericanNaziParty.com Hail Victory! 88!

Wow! Looking at this NSALP vs ANP altercation as an outsider, I would have to say that if all the things that the NSALP claims are true, then the ANP are one bad-ass, got their act together organization. This is something that has been lacking in the White Movement up till now. Until this ANP, the Movement has been a collection of protesters, and costumed clowns for the most part, consumed with getting publicity, and then going out and getting some more. An endless circle jerk of amaturish play acting. Now, we have these ANP bad boys, who seem to be pretty damn professional. Great! With people like these, maybe something can finally get accomplished for our side. Some advice for the NSALP, don't get on the bad side of someone who can kick your ass, and laugh about it. All your whining makes you look pathetic guys.
