Dennis Mahon has quite a history in the white supremacy movement. In 1995, he was a major figure in the Oklahoma City bombing. He avoided arrest but continued his neo-Nazi activities and relationships.
In 2004, he and Tom Metzger were in attentance at Arayanfest in Fountain Park, Arizona and a conversation between Mahon and some other skinheads was documented in the New Phoenix Times:
"I knew Timothy McVeigh quite well," he bragged. "In fact, I knew him back when he was named Timothy Tuttle [an alias McVeigh used in the months before the bombing], and he and I were involved in quite a few bom . . ." Here, Mahon dramatically cut himself off, as if he had just barely stopped himself from making a serious admission, and then he continued. ". . . Let's just say he and I did some serious business together. And after Oklahoma City, the feds came after me big-time, boy, but they never proved a thing."
At this point, Mahon raised his eyebrows and the corners of his mouth knowingly.
"But they've kept me from being able to have a good job. Well, that and they caught me pissing on Air Force One. [He didn't let on how he came to pee on the president's plane.] But I'll tell you what, as soon as my parents have left this world, I'm moving to the Ukraine, because it beats the hell out of living in a trailer. I've been shot twice, stabbed. Last year my appendix burst, and now I might even have cancer, and I'll tell you, I've had it with this cocksucking country."
Prior to expatriating, however, Mahon would like to see D.C. reduced to smoldering, irradiated ruins. "You nuke D.C., you're going to wipe out most of the politicians, plus a couple million crack-head niggers," he told Poindexter, who nodded in agreement, swaying on his feet like a prizefighter enduring a standing eight count.
"It's a win-win," Mahon continued. "And I think it's the only way, I really do. Terrorism works. We did a lot of terrorism in Tulsa in the 1980s. We put heads in the road, and people paid attention. You have to give it to the Iraqis, they're putting us to shame right now. I mean, I hate those cocksucking towel heads, but they're showing us how it's done."

Feds make arrests in 3 states in Scottsdale bombing
By Gary Grado
Former Scottsdale Diversity Director Don Logan. Federal authorities make arrests in at least three states with ties to the 2004 mail bombing that injured three employees, including Logan.
Federals authorities conducting raids in at least three states have arrested two White Supremist brothers Thursday in connection with a mail bomb that injured three employees of the Scottsdale Office of Diversity and Dialogue in 2004.

Dennis Mahon and Daniel Mahon were arrested in David Junction, Ill., and appeared in court in Rockford, according to court documents.
The three-count indictment alleges that Dennis Mahon built the bomb on Feb. 21, 2004, and it sent it to Donald Logan, former Scottsdale diversity director, who opened the package Feb. 26, 2004, injuring him, Renita Linyard and Jacque Bell.
Logan caught the brunt of the bomb and had to undergo extensive surgery to repair damage to his hands and arms.
Logan, who now works in a similar job for Glendale, was not immediately available for comment.
“The object of the conspiracy was to promote racial discord on behalf of the ‘White Aryan Resistance’ (WAR) by damaging and destroying buildings, facilities and real property of both government and businesses whose activities defendants believed conflicted with their goals,” the indictment states.
The arrests come a year after U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms announced it had made significant strides in the case with the help of new technology able to extract tiny amounts of DNA from bomb debris.
Authorities hinted last year that the Scottsdale bombing had “commonalities” with other bombings throughout the United States and Canada.
Authorities on Thursday also raided the home of Tom Metzger in Warsaw, Indiana, the founder of WAR, but he was not arrested.
Authorities also made an arrest in Missouri that “arose from a federal investigation” into the Scottsdale bombing, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Missouri.

WHITE SUPREMACIST RETREAT IN MISSOURI BRINGS YET ANOTHER ARREST
White supremacist from area arrested
From staff, AP reports
Robert Neil Joos, 56, a self-professed white supremacist from McDonald County, was charged Thursday in federal court with illegally possessing firearms, the U.S. attorney’s office said.
A search of Joos’ 200-acre property was the result of an investigation into a “retreat location in McDonald County used by white supremacists,” said Matt Whitworth, acting U.S. attorney for the Western District of Missouri, in a statement.
Joos was charged in a federal criminal complaint filed in Springfield with being a felon in possession of firearms, Whitworth said.
Joos was arrested Thursday and remained in federal custody pending a detention hearing set for Monday.
The statement by Whitworth said the arrest stemmed from a federal investigation into a Feb. 26, 2004, bombing that injured Don Logan, the director of the diversity office for the city of Scottsdale, Ariz., who is a black man. Two others were injured in the attack.
The undercover investigation focused on several people involved in white-supremacist movements throughout the United States.
According to an affidavit by Special Agent Kevin Farnsworth, brothers Daniel and Dennis Mahon were identified as suspects in the Arizona bombing.
A federal indictment unsealed Thursday in Arizona charges the Mahons with conspiracy to damage buildings and property by means of explosives. The indictment also says the brothers intended to “promote racial discord” on behalf of the War Aryan Resistance.
Authorities who arrested the brothers at their home in Davis Junction, Ill., said they had assault weapons, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and white-supremacist material.
In 2005, according to the affidavit, the Mahon brothers told undercover investigators about a “retreat” location in Missouri that members of the “movement” used for survival training. It was occupied by Joos.
A confidential informant and two undercover agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives visited Joos at his McDonald County property on three occasions, in January 2008 and in January and February 2009. During those visits, the affidavit says, they observed different firearms and ammunition.
Joos is characterized in the affidavit as a “long-time white supremacist associate and an expert on weapons, explosives, bomb making and general survival skills.”
Joos allegedly told undercover operatives that he knew how to make napalm and agreed to train others, and that he used caves on his property for concealment and shelter. The caves were stockpiled with food, water and weapons, according to the affidavit.
Federal law makes it illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to be in possession of firearms or ammunition.
Joos has a 1997 felony conviction for unlawful use of a weapon and a 2004 conviction for operating a motor vehicle without a valid license.
Joos at one point refused to get a driver’s license, saying during a court hearing in 2002 that it was against his religion, and that he could “make no covenant with the heathen government.”
Joos in 2004 led the Sacerdotal Church of David on a 200-acre farm near the community of Cyclone, between Powell and Pineville on Big Sugar Creek.
