Neo-Nazi Rinaldo Nazzaro running US militant group The Base from Russia

Source: BBC

Rinaldo Nazzaro, 46, who uses the aliases "Norman Spear" and "Roman Wolf", left New York for St Petersburg less than two years ago.

The Base is a major counter terrorism focus for the FBI.

Seven alleged members were charged this month with various offences, including conspiracy to commit murder.

Court documents prepared by the FBI describe The Base as a "racially motivated violent extremist group" that "seeks to accelerate the downfall of the United States government, incite a race war, and establish a white ethno-state".

1. drumpf will love and promote them as true Americans.

I'm sure no non-whites are allowed which is helpful to drumpf (in his mind) but really is just doing what PUtin wants, not his rusty tool.

The Guardian has learned the true identity of the leader and founder of the US-based neo-Nazi terror network the Base, which was recently the target of raids by the FBI after an investigation into domestic terrorism uncovered their plans to start a race war.

Members of the group stand accused of federal hate crimes, murder plots and firearms offenses, and have harbored international fugitives in recent months.

The Base’s leader previously operated under the aliases “Norman Spear” and “Roman Wolf”. Members of the network do not know his true identity due to the group’s culture of internal secrecy.

But the Guardian can reveal that “Norman Spear” is in fact US-born Rinaldo Nazzaro, 46, who has a long history of advertising his services as an intelligence, military and security contractor. He has claimed, under his alias, to have served in Russia and Afghanistan.

The revelation of his identity comes after a months-long investigation by the Guardian into Nazzaro and the activities of the Base.
The Base’s members stand accused of federal hate crimes.

While Nazzaro’s most recently used address is in New Jersey, there is evidence supporting his claims of being based in Russia, where he lives with his Russian wife.




The Base – which is an approximate English translation of “al-Qaida” – began recruiting in late 2018. The white supremacy group, which has regional and international cells, extols the virtues of an all-out race war while specifically targeting African Americans and Jewish people.

Using encrypted apps, members of the highly organized group planned terror campaigns; vandalized synagogues; established armed training camps and recruited new members.

The US attorney for Maryland, Robert K Hur, speaking after the recent arrest of three members of the Base, said that they “did more than talk – they took steps to act and act violently on their racist views”.
Few traces of him exist anywhere

3. Re-make of Red Dawn will have this surprise

When the movie "Red Dawn" is remade, the story will be told of the true Americans heros fighting the menace of Russian infiltrated 2nd amendment kool-aide selling terrorists shooting, killing and bombing from their 'whites only' root-cellars.

The evangelical crowd will fear they've been left behind as the rapture has come when they no longer see their now eradicated nutso neighbors.

18. He also keeps it running, no matter how much we know, by keeping his western generals

inside his non-extradition bubble.

I realize I'm no military/security expert, but just the practice of kicking this insurgency can down the road -- drone bombing Russian hybrid warfare centers -- will only create exponentially bigger problems for the U.S. Military and civilian intel have got to know this.
