Shawna Forde, the leader of the Minutemen American Defense organization, has been sentenced to death by lethal injection. This morning a Tucson, Arizona jury of 11 women and 1 man gave the racist vigilante the death penalty for the murders of 9 year old Brisenia Flores and her father Raul Flores in Arivaca, Arizona. Forde was also charged for the attempted murder of the mother Gina Flores who was shot but survived.
Forde led a group of vigilantes in a home invasion of the Flores family home on May 30, 2009 to steal drugs and cash to fund her border vigilante operations. There were no drugs or cash found in the home. Arrested along with Forde was Jason Eugene Bush and Albert Gaxiola who will be tried separately in March and June and they both also face the death penalty. It is generally believed that there were other vigilantes that directly participated in the home invasion but have not been arrested. These other Minutemen vigilantes have essentially gone into hiding.
There are also some other border vigilantes and their supporters that aided and abetted Shawna Forde in her criminal border operations. Mexican-Americans and other Latinos are asking why these outlaws have not been arrested and charged as well.
It is interesting to note that the White media, in most cases, are calling the victims Brisenia, Raul and Gina “illegal aliens” when in fact all three are native born US ctiziens.
A few days after the Minutemen invaded the home of the Flores family and murdered 9-year-old Brisenia and her father Raul in Arivaca, Arizona on May 30, Shawna Forde, the leader of the Minutemen American Defense organization, contacted her mother. She told her mother, Rena Caudle of California, that she was robbing Mexicans suspected of drug smuggling to fund the Minutemen and to form her own “international private security company.” Shawna Forde also told her mother that she and other Minutemen were getting ready to go to Syria on a mission.
In addition, the triggerman in the massacre of the Flores family, Jason Eugene “Gunny” Bush, confessed to Lt. Michael O’Connor of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, when he was arrested on June 11, that Shawna Forde and OTHER Minutemen planned to rob Mexican families along the US/Mexico border to obtain money for Minutemen border operations and to create a Minutemen international private security company. Bush also confessed that Shawna Forde planned and led Albert Gaxiola and “OTHER” Minutemen in the home invasion of the Flores home but that he had shot Brisenia and Raul in the head himself. Lt. Michael O’Connor was quoted in a news report that “Gunny” confessed because murdering an innocent child weighed heavily on his soul.
There is no question now that there were more than three Minutemen vigilantes involved in the raid of the Flores family. The mother, Gina Flores, who was seriously injured but survived the vicious attack has said that she remembers at least five killers entering her home. She also remembers seeing Shawna Forde constantly communicating with others outside her home with a “walkie-talkie.” Lt. Michael O’Connor has reported to the news media that there is a good possibility for further arrests.

There is a major question that arises from the above facts. How did the plebeian Shawna Forde get the grand idea of forming an “international private security company” and going to Syria on a mission? Did these ideas germinate at the Minutemen border campsite north of Sasabe, Arizona known as Caballo Loco? In March of 2008, Shawna Forde camped out there with the notorious CIA covert operative Joseph Adams of “Nicaraguan Contra/Crack Cocaine Scandal” fame. Joseph Adams also presently operates a domestic as well as an “international private security company” and has travelled extensively throughout the world on covert missions. Also present at the camp wasWes Fleming, an employee of the infamous anti-Mexican bigot Glenn Spencer, according to journalist Art Ricker of the Galena Gazette in a report he published on April of 2008.
The exact nature of Joseph Adams’ interest in Shawna Forde, the Minutemen and the US/Mexico border is still unknown but the multimillionaire has lent his luxurious mansion, resources and estate near St. Louis, Missouri to the Minutemen for various functions. Mike Vanderboegh of the Alabama Minuteman Support Team writes that a “reception was held at the substantial home of Joe Adams” that included “Revolutionary War Minutemen reenactors” which “presented arms as we entered the Adams’ manse.” Vanderboegh writes, “At the end of the ceremony, reenactors advanced to present Joe with the Revolutionary Stars and Stripes: ‘From the original generation of Minute Men to the Minutemen of today, we present this flag. Bear it with honor.'” Vanderboegh adds, “Goosebumps. I wasn’t the only one with wet eyes, nor the only one with a lump in my throat.”
Joseph Adams also has very high connections to the Republican Party. He is very proud of his photographs with former president George Bush and with former US Attorney General Ashcroft. There is also a photograph of him with former Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak. In the past, Joseph Adams has obtained extensive U.S. government legal immunity for drug related crimes that would have meant a life sentence for an ordinary citizen.

Joseph Adams’ career started when he served in Vietnam as a US Marine working in military intelligence from 1970 to 1972. He was recruited by the CIA in 1984 and was assigned to an “international private security company” whose mission was to guard the exiled Contra leader of Nicaragua Adolfo Calero in the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa. In 1984 Nicaragua was in the middle of a revolution between the Sandinistas and the US-backed Contra rebels. Republican President Ronald Reagan strongly advocated for the overthrow of the Sandinista government but the Democratic Congress felt differently and blocked all funding to the Contras. This is when Oliver North and the CIA funneled money to the Contras obtained by importing cocaine to the USA, turning it into crack and selling it in Black communities in major US cities through the Bloods and the Crypts gangs. Joseph Adams was paid with this money.
When the Ronald Reagan conspiracy was exposed, Joseph Adams operations had to quickly shut down. Ultimately, Joseph Adams and six others were indicted. The government charged Joseph Adams with two counts of weapons smuggling, one count of violating neutrality and one conspiracy count. He pled guilty on a plea-bargain agreement to one count of violating neutrality. He was sentenced, incredibly, to only one day unsupervised probation and a $50 fine.

A report by journalist Randall Roberts published on March 29, 2006 says that Joseph Adams has served as a bodyguard for a Miami drug ring and that in 1983 he admitted to cocaine trafficking in Miami. Randall Roberts says that Joseph Adams faced with prison time, turned state’s witness and became a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) informant. The report also says that in 2000 Joseph Adams pleaded guilty of conspiracy to bribe a Maplewood, Missouri police officer.
So the question is, “What is the exact nature of Joseph Adams’ relationship with the Minutemen generally and with Shawna Forde specifically?” Is he still operating as a covert CIA agent? What is his mission? What was he doing with Shawna Forde along the Arizona/Mexico border not far from Arivaca, Arizona around March of 2008?
Arizona has now had numerous hijackings of suspected drugs smugglers along its major highways involving well armed vigilantes. There have also been numerous home invasions of the type that took place in Arivaca, Arizona by the Minutemen American Defense vigilantes. These raids have been carried out with paramilitary precision utilizing assaults rifles and military style gear. Are these simply CIA covert operations which are utilizing the Minutemen in order to raise funds for unauthorized projects in the same manner as they were raising funds to fund the Contras in Nicaragua? A 9-year-old innocent Mexican-American child has been murdered. We need to know.
The above are two rare photos of the founder of the Minutemen Jim Gilchrist and of Shawna Forde, the killer of 9-year-old Brisenia Flores now in jail in Tucson awaiting trial.
Jim Gilchrist has been attempting to distance himself from the child murderess ever since she was arrested leaving Glenn Spencer’s ranch a few days after the heinous murders.
