The Quartzsite, AZ Inside Story From A Resident (by Dave Levine)


The above blogsite belongs to Rocky Bertsch, a resident in the troubled small town of Quartzsite, Arizona where the Police Chief is out of control. Towns folk are literally in fear for their lives, particularly the activist-residents who have spoken out against the tactics of the Police Chief Jeff Gilbert. The police, fearful for their lives because of the nationwide attention the story is getting on alternative (Conservative and Libertarian) media, are thus wearing tactical body armor in a severe overreaction to the words of one of the town's activists on a blogsite.


But Chief Gilbert apparently isn't alone. Something doesn't quite smell right here. There are Council members along with other powerful residents who are with him and against those in the town speaking out. There may be other things happening regarding federal money that we aren't being told about.


The situation in Quartzsite reminds me a lot of what's been happening in Mohave County, AZ at their Board of Supervisor meetings. Minutemen and other residents have been removed from speaking before BOS meetings there. They've been intimidated and have had their firearms illegally registered (Guns do not have to be registered in Mohave County). Governor Brewer got involved in that issue and that part of the harassment stopped in Mohave immediately. The BOS in Mohave overreacted much the same way Police Chief Gilbert has in Quartzsite. Mohave County Courthouse and Quartzsite are only 80-100 miles from each other. Both have McCainites running the show--Councilmen who oppose citizens who want the laws enforced, particularly Federal laws against illegal aliens and the lawbreaking employers in AZ who hire them. But it goes beyond that. The civil rights issue once the purview of black Americans is now an issue for mostly white law and order Conservatives who are opposed to the status quo. The best example of this--other than the violations occurring in Quartzsite--is what has happened in Mohave County, AZ to Patriots Luca and Bridget Zanna who have been Guests on the Show.


If you read Rocky Bertsch's blog account of what led to all this, you'll see that it apparently has to do with the airstrip at the edge of town that has been used for years. The harrassment of landowner Richard Oldham is nothing short of criminal. AG Tom Horne should be contacted about this.


The Mayor of Quartzsite, Ed Foster, is opposed to Chief Gilbert's tactics.

The mayor says the council has even precluded him from examining the payroll. He believes he's uncovered some possible financial wrongdoing involving checks being paid to unknown personnel, and he speculates the recipients could be councilmembers themselves.


"They're playing a sleight-of-hand with federal money," Foster said. "I've tried to get the FBI, the governor and attorney general involved, and no one has paid attention. But since this video, people are asking, 'What's going on in Quartzsite?'"


The Dave Levine Show wants to get to the bottom of this story. Rocky Bertsch's blogsite gives detail as to how this all came about. I highly recommend it for those who are interested in this unfolding story.
