Nazi's and abusive men seem to be synonymous these days. How many times do we have to hear about the wife-beating, name calling, swaggering and tattooed neo-Nazi who gets his rocks off at home and in the community by intimidating and generally being abusive to others before we determine that an inordinate number of these people are attracted to the racist realm of white supremacy?
James Cummings and Yankee Jim Leshkevich have quite a few things in common - not the least of which is that they are both dead and that they were both reviling, opprobrious, and abusive Nazi-minded individuals.
Disdain for women is not uncommon among the racist crowd. Derisiveness, abasement, and general belittling of all things feminine among white supremacists is just pretty much the status quo. Living with and among those who nurture their hatred of others and view their women as nothing more than broodmares is a very difficult thing and something that most women flee from at the first opportunity. Others, who lack the means or who are simply beaten into submission often find themselves behind the device that frees them from their captors. Amber Cummings chose a gun.
Early reports call James Cummings an "angry" man. Apparently, he wasn't as "angry" as his wife.
Let's face it - sane people do not worship Hitler. Sane people do not harbor ideas of ethnic cleansing and genocide. Sane people do not brandish swastikas and prize their jack-boots. Only those who have been damaged in some fashion see white supremacy as a means to an end - and it often ends badly for them. Few relationships survive in the cesspool of hate. It is difficult to form lasting bonds when your heart is filled with hatred and racist sputum. We don't know why Amber killed James - but I can hazard a guess - an educated guess. It probably wasn't because she was angry but because she was tired and terrified - tired of being his target and terrified of what he would do next. It probably wasn't because she wanted him dead but because she wanted to be free - free from domination and fear.
Whatever the reason - she hasn't been arrested. Perhaps the police believe justice has been served?

Slain Belfast man was ‘angry’
Cummings called ‘verbally abusive’
By Walter Griffin
BELFAST, Maine — As the police investigation into the shooting death of James G. Cummings entered its third day, traits about his personality came to light along with the fact that his father also was shot to death.
Cummings, 29, of High Street was the son of a wealthy California businessman, James G. Cummings Sr., who was murdered a decade ago by a disgruntled employee, according to newspaper reports.
The younger Cummings was reportedly shot to death by his wife, Amber B. Cummings, 31, at their High Street home Tuesday morning. The couple’s 9-year-old daughter was at the house when the killing occurred. Police are investigating the killing as a domestic violence homicide. No arrests have been made, and Amber Cummings and her daughter remain in the Belfast area.
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said investigators did not anticipate making any announcements about the case Thursday. Results of an autopsy conducted on Cummings the day before are being withheld while the investigation continues.
Two area tradesmen who performed extensive work on Cummings’ house last summer described Cummings as being a disagreeable man whose wife cowered in his presence. They also said he talked incessantly of his love of guns and had a fascination for Adolf Hitler.
“It didn’t shock me at all when I heard about it,” said Mike Robbins, who spent a month painting and roofing the Cummings home last summer. “He was a very angry person and was verbally abusive to his wife all the time.”
Robbins described Cummings as a heavyset man who liked to walk around his house wearing a cowboy hat and an ankle-length black leather coat. He said Cummings would often sit outside on a lawn chair and watch him work and make disparaging comments. He said Cummings had a mean streak and was particularly abusive toward his wife.
Robbins said Cummings also spoke about how he “really liked the Nazis” and claimed to have a large collection of Nazi memorabilia, including pieces of Hitler’s silverware and place settings.
Another contractor who worked on the Cummings house had similar recollections. The man declined to be identified because he was preparing legal action against Cummings’ estate because of unpaid work. He said he and Cummings disagreed about the work he performed and that he decided to walk away without getting paid because of Cummings’ explosive personality.
“Normally I’d go after payment, but in this case I walked away. He was absolutely the worst customer I ever had,” he said Thursday. “I just perceived that the guy was dangerous and capable of real violence. I was afraid of the guy. He talked all the time about guns, one of those guys that would let you know he had guns.”
He added that “this guy was a huge fan of Adolf Hitler, he had silverware and dinner sets Hitler used.” He described Cummings as “verbally abusive to his wife and just about everybody. You’ve heard of short guys with a Napoleonic complex; well, this was a fat guy with a Napoleonic complex.”
If Cummings directed any of his volatile tendencies toward his wife and child, police were unaware of it. Belfast Police Chief Jeffrey Trafton said the only time the police were called to the home was over an animal complaint.
The Cummings family moved to Belfast in August 2007. According to records at Belfast City Hall, the home was “trashed” when the Cummings bought it in a foreclosure sale through a Florida mortgage company. The couple paid $153,900 for the property, which the city has assessed at $164,100.
Robbins said Cummings told him that he was raised in California but moved to Texas because he could not get along with his family. He did have a job and could afford to pay for extensive renovations to his home, where he spent most of his time, as far as Robbins could see. Cummings claimed to have made his money in Texas real estate, Robbins said.
“I doubted that,” he said. “He didn’t seem to be the kind of guy who could make it in real estate. He was too much of a jerk.”
It appears that the real source of Cummings’ wealth was his father, who was killed on July 30, 1997, at age 77 by a disgruntled part-time employee, according to news accounts from that time found online. The employee later confessed to shooting the elder Cummings.
The senior Cummings was a prominent landowner in the Northern California city of Fort Bragg, a coastal community of 7,000 in Mendocino County, according to Katherine Lee, editor of the Fort Bragg Advocate News. He made his fortune in land, restaurants, motels, a fish-processing plant, malls and other businesses, she said.
Lee said the elder Cummings owned large parcels of land along the Fort Bragg waterfront and that a trust was established in his name after his death. An Internet search of the James G. Cummings Trust revealed Thursday that the trust has an estimated annual income of $10 million.
“It was a real sad turn of events,” Lee said Thursday of Cummings Sr.’s murder. “He was kind of a colorful guy around here. Everybody knew him.”
Lee could not provide any information about the younger Cummings. She said the paper, a weekly published every Thursday, had yet to receive an obituary for the son.
According to an Associated Press story published around the time of the father’s murder, Cummings Jr. had once used a video camera to secretly tape his mother’s alleged drug use. However, authorities dropped the charges after discovering that a substance seized from the woman’s apartment was not black-tar heroin, as was suspected.
Robbins recalled that Cummings also hated public schools and refused to let his daughter enroll. He said Cummings was constantly berating his wife and harping at her to home-school the girl. He said Cummings had a controlling personality and wanted to know his wife and child’s every move.
“He was a bad guy and that’s just what I saw working for him. I couldn’t imagine living with the dude,” he said.

As many of you know, I have been following the events and circumstances surrounding the arrest of Roanoke Nazi, Bill White, from the beginning. Today in Federal Court the Judge, once again, denied him his freedom and a forensic psychiatrist testified to the effect that White is not mentally ill but does have a personality disorder, something that I have been claiming for a number of years.
Personality disorders are defined by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) as "an enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates markedly from the expectations of the culture of the individual who exhibits it".  These patterns, as noted, are inflexible and pervasive across many situations, due in large part to the fact that such behavior is ego-syntonic (i.e., the patterns are consistent with the ego integrity of the individual), and therefore, perceived to be appropriate by that individual. The onset of these patterns of behavior can typically be traced back to late adolescence and the beginning of adulthood, and, in rare instances, childhood.
The DSM-IV lists ten personality disorders, grouped into three clusters. The DSM also contains a category for behavioral patterns that do not match these ten disorders, but nevertheless exhibit characteristics of a personality disorder. This category is labeled Personality Disorder NOS (Not Otherwise Specified).
Cluster A (odd or eccentric disorders)
Paranoid personality disorder: characterized by irrational suspicions and mistrust of others
Schizoid personality disorder: lack of interest in social relationships, seeing no point in sharing time with others
Schizotypal personality disorder: also avoids social relationships, though out of a fear of people
Cluster B (dramatic, emotional, or erratic disorders)
Antisocial personality disorder: "pervasive disregard for the law and the rights of others."
Borderline personality disorder: extreme "black and white" thinking, instability in relationships, self-image, identity and behavior
Histrionic personality disorder: "pervasive attention-seeking behavior including inappropriate sexual seductiveness and shallow or exaggerated emotions
Narcissistic personality disorder: "a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and a lack of empathy"
Cluster C (anxious or fearful disorders)
Avoidant personality disorder: social inhibition, feelings of inadequacy, extreme sensitivity to negative evaluation and avoidance of social interaction
Dependent personality disorder: pervasive psychological dependence on other people.
Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (not the same as Obsessive-compulsive disorder): characterized by rigid conformity to rules, moral codes, and excessive orderliness
Anyone care to pick a disorder as it relates to Bill?

CHICAGO -- William A. White will not be released from federal custody, a judge has ordered.
Judge William Hibbler this afternoon denied White's bond request, saying he based his decision not so much on concerns about what White might do, but more on what others might do at his urging.
"Unfortunately, there are so many people who are susceptible to suggestions that come from other sources," the judge said.
Updated 3:14 p.m.
CHICAGO – The only reason federal agents arrested William A. White, his attorney said today, was to get him off the streets before the presidential election.
At the time of his Oct. 17 arrest, the white supremacist was preparing to go to print with a magazine that pictured then-candidate Barack Obama, his head encircled by a rifle's crosshairs in the shape of a swastika.
With the image was this headline: “Kill This N-----?”
Although “the headline was catchy,” the accompanying article made no direct threats against Obama, White’s defense attorney, Nishay Sanan said.
Federal prosecutors never said directly at today’s bond hearing that White poses a danger to Obama, whose presidential transition office is located just across the street from the U.S. District courthouse in downtown Chicago.
But in asking that White be held without bond, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Ferrara noted that the article concluded by stating that if Obama were to be elected, he should not be allowed, “by any means necessary,” to take office.
Authorities are arguing that the magazine for White’s neo-Nazi organization, the American National Socialist Workers Party -- and his Web site to an even greater degree -- are a way for him to advocate violence against those who offend his racist beliefs.
Earlier in the bond hearing, a psychiatrist testified that White would not pose a threat if released.
White’s inflammatory online postings site were a way for him to vent frustration, forensic psychiatrist James Corcoran said.
White shows no signs of mental illness, although he does have a personality disorder, the psychiatrist said.
Following Corcoran’s testimony, Judge William Hibbler recessed court to give him time to read the transcript from an earlier hearing in Roanoke in which White was ordered held without bond.
If White were released, he would return to Roanoke, where he would be watched closely by the FBI, his attorney said.
Hibbler said he expects to make a decision when court resumes at 3 p.m. Central time.
White has been in jail since Oct. 17, when federal agents in Roanoke arrested him on a charge of encouraging violence against the foreman of Chicago jury that convicted a fellow white supremacist.
Federal authorities allege that White posted the juror’s home address and telephone numbers on his Web site -- putting the man at risk to an Internet audience known for racist views and, in some cases, violence.
Although he made no direct threats to the juror, White wrote that the man played a key role in the wrongful conviction of Matthew Hale, who is currently serving a 40-year prison term. The jury convicted Hale in 2004 of soliciting the murder of a federal judge who ruled against him in a trademark infringement case involving the name of his organization, the World Church of the Creator.
Today’s hearing was White’s second attempt to make bond.
At an earlier hearing in federal court in Roanoke, magistrate Judge Michael Urbanski found White was a risk to the community, basing his decision largely on the 31-year-old’s own words.
In postings to his Web site, overthrow.com, White has rambled about his urges to kill – writing at one point that he had developed an intricate plot to murder “about a score of Roanoke’s Negro nuisances and their annoying counterparts at The Roanoke Times.”
Following Ubranski’s decision to hold White without bond, he was transferred to Chicago.

Well, here we go again. Long-time wishy-washy Nazi, Michael Burks, called it quits this weekend. While Burks never amounted to much within the movement, and endured quite a bit of ridicule from other members, he seemed to have found his niche in Bill White's American National Socialist Worker's Party - until White was arrested and the walls came tumbling down. True to form for both Burks and the "movement," he has tucked in his tail and is telling all he knows - which isn't much.
Perhaps the most interesting claim made by Burks so far is that Bill is trying to "sell" his membership list to Erich Gliebe of the National Alliance. With no more members than the ANSWP had that should net around $30.00. As to Gliebe - I doubt that Erich wants anyone on that list - and probably already has all the info anyway.
We ARE happy that Burks is moving on with his life - but guarded in that he has done similar things in the past. This is his statement...
After nearly seven years of being in the “pro-white” movement I feel its time to retire. After taking the last month in half to think things over I have come to the conclusion that the entire “pro-white” movement is a joke. In my seven years worth of experience I’ve never witness anything good from it. Instead I have met the biggest group of hypocrites, back-stabbers and anti-social misfits one could ever come across. I have much better things to do with my time, energy and money.
I have met enough odd balls in this “pro-white” to know walking away is the right thing to do. Never in my life have I met a group of mentally ill, white trash and anti-social group of scumbags in my life. It’s amazing that so many of these people exist. I think back and one thought kept coming up – “Who has attacked me the past few years?” No, it wasn’t the Jew, the non-white or other “so-called” enemy of my race. It has been my own people. The Randy Grays, Matthew Ramseys, McKinley Mitchells, and Matt Roberts of the world are the ones who have stalked me, harassed me and threaten me. It wasn’t One Peoples Project, the SPLC, or ARA I had to worry about. Instead, it was my “own people” who attacked me.
Looking over my life I realize all my true friends and loyal friends besides a select few, were people that had nothing to do with the “pro-white” movement. I have friends I grew up with since childhood who I’m still close with. Friends from middle and high school are still there in my life. However, besides a very small group of “pro-white” people, hardly any of them remained loyal. Instead these are the ones who back stabbed, slandered or threatened me over the years. And I know that I am better off without these misfits being in my life.
The number of whores, closets homosexuals and liars I’ve met within the “pro-white” movement is something I can do without. These people do nothing useful. Not only are they a total disgrace to the white race, but a total disgrace to all of mankind. Walking away from these people won’t be hard. With that said, I am not joining some ARA group like say Erica Hardwick did. Many of my views such as my religious ones don’t mix well with the ARA mindset. For instance, I can’t accept gay or transgender rights. With that said, I plan on spending much of my free time exposing facts and truths about the frauds within the “pro-white” movement.
I do want to thank a small group of “pro-white” people who were good friends. These people are Phil Anderson, Pastor Visser, Demonica of VNN and Adrian Trenadue. Even though I will no longer being working with these people, I pray that all of us can still be friends and be on good terms. I have nothing bad to say about any of these people what so ever. They were loyal friends and some of the very rare people who actually practiced what they preached.
As for Bill White, I can say this - He will not be set free. And after being questioned by the FBI, I can see why. Bill White did break the law and I regret now that I stood behind him after his arrest. I believe in free speech and don’t believe that Bill should be held for juror tampering. With that said, he did break other laws. He stated on live radio that people should kill Richard Warman. He didn’t say he hoped he died or that he wished the man died, Bill clearly said to “kill him” and gave out his address. Bill also told the news in Tampa that he wished a crazy would kill Leonard Pitts and the people in the Newsroom. Bill also asked me to hide evidence during one of his many investigations – also illegal and yes, the FBI knows all about it. No, I didn’t snitch on Bill White. The FBI had the call taped.
Bill White also lied and truly didn’t care about anyone with the ANSWP. Once he was in jail I stood behind his wife. I wrote people and emailed people asking people to donate funds to her. She was nice and only called when she and Bill wanted me to testify in his behalf. Since that time she has not called to inform me of any updates. Instead she has only told things to Chris Drake and Jarl, leaving the rest of the ANSWP clueless. Bill also went behind my back and wanted to cut a deal by selling his membership list to Eric Gliebe (how ever you spell his name) and have the ANSWP join forces with the National Alliance. Being a Regional Leader, I was supposed to have a say in this matter. Instead, Bill planned this with other ANSWP people behind my back. And that is okay by me. I just want Megan, Bill’s wife, to know that I have no plans to testify in his behalf.
Every group I have joined has been a complete failure. So below I am going to take the time to name the groups and give some facts and personal eye witness accounts of each. Enjoy!
Imperial Klans of America (IKA) – Was the first group I ever joined. Led by Ron Edwards and National HQ based out of my home state of Kentucky. This group was a joke. I met men who beat women and a countless number of drunks. Most of the members were high school dropouts or people of low education. Ron was jobless while his wife was working paying the bills – what a “tough” white man! Once I quit members of the IKA harassed me for the next few years. Lucky the IKA recently lost a 2.5 million dollar lawsuit and will no longer be a factor…. Wait they haven’t been a factor the past two years anyways.
White Revolution – I stayed in this group for a quick two months. Knowing the people within this group was enough to make anyone with an IQ over 80 quit. You had Mark Martin, which is laughable. Some 400 girl from Arizona that seemed to stalk Mark Martin, also funny. A mentally ill man in Kentucky who blew his brains out. Their South Carolina leader Billy Brown dated a girl with mixed children. I mean, I could go on but I think you get the point. Oh yeah, Bill Roper was their leader, enough said,
Knights Party – Led by career con-man, Thom Robb. Like money making preachers you see on television, “Pastor” Robb will sell you a $350 brick for “White Christian Revival” – other words the money goes in his wallet. For a “Christian” I question the people I met within this group. Richard Hensley of HQ staff and David Barnett of North Carolina were divorced, a sin last time I checked my Bible. A guy named Phil was a former pot dealer. A woman from New York wore an upside down cross (symbol of Satan). Randy Gray, a high school dropout, seems to have a homosexual fixation on me which is very sick and disturbing to say the least.
American National Socialist Workers Party – At first we did great activism. The last few months I realize we only went after people that made Bill White mad. We no longer did political activism. All our time was spent on people Bill hated. Bill would appoint people like me to leadership roles and never listen to my advice. I told him for months to kick Justin Boyer out. Boyer, who spells like a retarded child, was a disgrace for anyone calling themselves a man. Instead, Bill allowed Boyer to make a complete mockery out of us. I find it funny now that Boyer testified against Bill. I also told Bill to kick Tim Bland out. Bill ripped me for this and took Bland’s side. A few months ago Bland was arrested for selling pot (we have the police record). Of course I was right and Bill was wrong. Bill also ran off my good friend, Mike Garrett by calling him mentally ill and making him looks bad on our yahoo group.
As you can tell, I have created this Blog. I will dedicate this Blog as a “pro-white” news source much like White Reference does. The only difference is that my Blog will expose the frauds and corruption within the “pro-white” movement instead of glorifying con-men such as David Duke, Don Black and others. I am sure many will hate me and threaten me. Wait, they’ve been doing that for a few years now lol.
