Default Gheen is at it again.

Gheen is at it again, causing problems. He often doesn't know the fact of a situation, but tries to speak as an authority. Word is, he wiggled his way into this event, and wanted the glory. But is now trying to cause problems. Not surprising.

ALIPAC Withdraws From AZ Rallies Over Nazi Groups & Tom Tancredo

May 18, 2010

We are sad to announce that ALIPAC is withdrawing support for any rallies in Arizona in June to support SB 1070 due to the discovery of racist group involvement and the actions of former Congressman Tom Tancredo.

We take our commitment to working with and unifying Americans of every race and walk of life behind the effort to secure our borders very seriously. While the illegal alien supporters constantly make false accusations of racism and racist involvement, it is of paramount importance that groups like ours work to keep any racist element out of our events and operations.

A few weeks ago, we got behind a rally in Phoenix on June 5 being planned by Dan Smeriglio of Voice of The People USA and retired Congressman Tom Tancredo. On Monday, May 10th, we discovered two painful truths that forced us to take a new direction.

First, June 5 organizer Dan Smeriglio had radically misinformed us about his possession of permits for a location in Phoenix on June 5. He did not have any permits and the illegal alien supporter had permits for the location he had promised us. This happened last year when Smeriglio promised us he had permits for a rally in DC and we had to cancel when we learned he had misinformed us and the illegal alien supporters had the permit for our rally location. Unfortunately we had quite a case of political déjà vu with Mr. Smeriglio misleading organization leaders about permits, while our opposition held the ground he promised us.

The second problem also arose around June 5, when we picked up a release by a smaller illegal alien supporting group called One People's Project. The group was attacking Dan Smeriglio claiming he was working with skin heads and Nazis and attacking ALIPAC for associating with Smeriglio.

The illegal alien and amnesty supporting activists and groups constantly play the race card and twist information in a way that is false and designed to try to throw mud on anyone who stands up and speaks out against illegal immigration.

However, we reviewed the video and computer screen shots that our opposition possesses regarding Dan Smeriglio and discovered that they are correct.

The video and screen shots of Dan Smeriglio's Facebook account indicates that he has willingly been working with members or racist skin head groups long after he knew their identities and politics. In fact, Dan's Facebook profile, which remains his main way of broadcasting a rally for June 5, promoted one of Europe's most popular neo-Nazi rock groups until a few days ago.


On Tuesday, May 11, we were invited to join a Tea Party group out of Florida rally in Phoenix on June 12 , so we spoke to some leaders and moved to unify on the 12th for a larger rally and to move away from Dan Smeriglio and his skinhead associates. We felt leaving the June 5 event was the best way to protect many of the vulnerable candidates wishing to attend a rally in Phoenix.

Unfortunately, our plans to get the skinheads out and away from the Phoenix effort was thwarted, when retired Congressman Tom Tancredo, who had self titled himself as the 'key note speaker' at the June 5 event started telling leaders and candidates to come back to the June 5 rally. Tancredo even claimed that ALIPAC's concerns about Dan Smeriglio were false, when he had not reviewed the video and screen shots which we find to be fairly conclusive.

We must point out here that Tom Tancredo had nothing to do with helping pass SB 1070 or circulate it to other states to our knowledge although the three largest national groups fighting illegal immigration have.

Some fine folks in Arizona took action at the end of last week and assured us that Dan Smeriglio's involvement was being completely removed from the June 5 rally and that we would have no more difficulties from Tom Tancredo.

Unfortunately, we found out yesterday that Dan Smeriglio is still involved with the Facebook effort to support the June 5 event, even though the neo-Nazi rock group and friends and their comments have been sanitized from his Facebook pages. We also found out that Tom Tancredo is continuing to try and persuade leaders to abandon the June 12 event for the 5th event.

ALIPAC will not work with any group or event that is working with or supportive of neo-Nazis or anyone working with them. We do not feel comfortable asking our national network to travel into Arizona at great expense to attend an event that Tom Tancredo is attempting to undermine.

We have spent a great deal of time, effort, and energy trying to get these events into place for the people of Arizona and America. We have worked diligently behind the scenes to try to resolve this situation with the knowledge that our political opposition does have strong evidence of neo-Nazi supporters being involved with the event still going forward on the 5th.

We feel it is completely unacceptable that Dan Smeriglio and Tom Tancredo or anyone else would put the brave activists, lawmakers, candidates, and citizens of Arizona at risk by proceeding with an event that our opponents can use to harm our cause of stopping and reversing illegal immigration.

We are releasing the video and screen shots that the illegal alien supporting groups posses and intend to use against the rallies. We have documented their findings and the screen shots are our copies.

We apologize to all of you who were excited about going to events in Arizona and already making travel plans to support SB 1070 and AZ.

ALIPAC will not be attending or promoting any rallies in June in Arizona and we advise anyone consider attending any event to review the information showing white nationalist influence involving the core organizers.

We will have no future dealings with Dan Smeriglio or retired Congressman Tom Tancredo due to the neo-Nazi connections and this disaster they have cooked up in Arizona that puts our issue at risk. Our friends in the Tea Party groups still plan to carry on with a much smaller event on June 12 in Phoenix.

The donations we received over the last few days will be used to help spread SB 1070 to other states. Any ALIPAC supporter that would prefer a refund please contact

If you have time, can you contact the Tancredo camp, and Smeriglio's camp and see if they would like to comment on this for publication on the SOS site?

There's always two or more sides to every story, and Gheen has a history of making false claims that indict people. Remember the Glenn Spencer smear attempt he did a few months back?

I just don't trust Gheen's publications anymore.

Dan Smeriglio Connection With Neo Nazi Skin Heads

On Monday May 10, 2010, ALIPAC received information that Dan Smeriglio who has no group, website, accounts, funds, etc... yet operates under the moniker Voice Of The People USA had no permit for a June 5 event in Arizona and had connections to neo-Nazis and neo-Nazi rock groups on his Facebook page promoting an event in Phoenix on June 5.

While ALIPAC had worked with Dan Smeriglio some over the last three years, we never had any solid evidence he was connected with or working with skinhead groups, until May 10, 2010. Although, we must mention that racist skinheads have shown up at and caused trouble at many of Smeriglio's events in Pennsylvania. Smeriglio has always denied any ties to these groups.

Despite our direct complaints on May 10, and our departure to a new event date on May 11, the neo-Nazi rock group SAGA continued to be listed on Dan Smeriglio's Facebook page until May 13. Dan Smeriglio only removed the group neo-Nazi group SAGA and Steve Smith, founder of a skinhead group called Keystone United, from his Facebook page after being confronted further.

Dan Smeriglio has known Steve Smith and about Steve Smith's position with Keystone United skinheads because they appeared together at a small rally in Hazelton, PA on November 14, 2009

Illegal Immigration groups released this news clip to attack ALIPAC. It shows four white nationalists at Dan Smeriglio's rally, including Steve Smith who appears to help lead the event with a bullhorn.

Neo Nazi's At November Rally with Smeriglio. Skinhead Steve Smith is the large guy with the bullhorn.

After this video came out, William Gheen of ALIPAC confronted Dan Smeriglio and he claimed that he did not know Steve Smith or the white nationalists or of their affiliations.

Yet, long after that confrontation Dan Smeriglio added Steve Smith as his Friend on Facebook and the two were seen communicating with each other in relation to politicians in PA who are against illegal immigration.

NOTE ON SCREEN SHOT FILES: Use your mouse roller to flip through pages on the files.

Screen Shot #1 establishes these screen shots were taken on May 13, 2010 by showing Dan Smeriglio's Facebook profile with a dated newspaper.

Screen Shot #2 shows Dan Smeriglio as friends with skinhead Steve Smith at time of capture on May 13, 2010. Steve Smith is in the video above holding the bull horn back on Nov. 14, 2009 rally.

Screen Shot #3 Shows skinhead Steve Smith is friends with Dan Smeriglio

(page 3)


Closer analysis of Steve Smith's Facebook profile indicates he lists his favorite musical groups as SAGA.

Dan Smeriglio has first musical group of preference listed by name as SAGA, up until May 13 and only removed Steve Smith and Saga after numerous demands by leaders planning rallies in Arizona.

SAGA and Steve Smith were removed from Smeriglio's Facebook page promoting the June 5 Phoenix event after a lot of pressure on May 13
Screen Shot of Sanitized Pages...

The neo-Nazi rock group SAGA is also listed on Steve Smith of Keystone United's Facebook as his favorite rock group too!

(Screen Shot of Steve Smith Saga profile Page 3)

Dan Smeriglio's Facebook profile has been advertising the neo-Nazi rock groups SAGA up until a few days ago. Dan's Facebook profile is the main communications channel running a page to drive a rally on June 5 in Phoenix AZ in support of SB 1070.


Dan Smeriglio and Steve Smith were seen conversing with each other on the rally page two weeks ago, but we do not have the screen shots and those posts have recently been erased.

While there are several SAGA Fan Pages on Facebook, the SAGA links on both Dan Smeriglio's and Steve Smith's Facebook profiles links to the very same SAGA Fan Page found at this link...

Here is what Wikipedia says about Smeriglio and Smith's favorite band SAGA.

Here are some examples of SAGA's music videos on YouTube that shows her performing for the NSF "National Socialist Front". The NSF is a neo-Nazi political group in Sweden.

National Socialist Front

Videos (Swastika's and other racist symbols appear in these)
Saga - Ode To A Dying People

Saga - European dream

This SAGA should not be confused with the defunct Canadian band from the early 80's called Saga.

ALIPAC is pulling out of any rallies in Arizona in the month of June after discovering that retired Congressman Tom Tancredo is working behind the scenes to try and direct leaders, candidates, and groups away from an alternate event planned on June 12 and into Dan Smeriglio's rally in Phoenix on June 5.

We feel that Tancredo's assertions that there are no serious concerns about Smeriglio or bringing candidates into the June 5 rally are false.

Here is ALIPAC's announcement that links to this evidence page...

We are getting more information and evidence coming in about Dan Smeriglio's associations with skinheads and will post that information here as it comes in and is verified.

If anyone has any questions about this information or needs clarification, please contact William Gheen of ALIPAC at or (866) 703-0864

I received this message in my Facebook account. Knowing what a POS, and media whore William Gheen is, I tend to lean towards Daniel Smeriglio's explanation of things.

Daniel Smeriglio May 18 at 5:35am Reply
Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please forgive me for having to waste a moment of your time, but sometimes it is necessary to respond when your character, integrity or honor are under attack.

In regards to false statements being made about our rally, June 5, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona, let me state a few things.

I have always worked on a grassroots level with honor, integrity and passion for always putting the people first and foremost with everything that I do. I do not beg for money, nor am I sponsored by any national organization. No organization funds my efforts to combat unfair and unjust taxation, political corruption on all levels, and of course holding rallies opposed to illegal immigration and amnesty.

My organization operates on a shoestring budget that is self-funded. We believe that our freedoms are guaranteed to us by the bravery and ultimate sacrifices made by our men and women of the armed forces. Our Bill of Rights does not have a price tag attached to it. We do this out of love for our country and a willingness to always put the people first above money and special interest groups. We believe that We the People have the power!

Along the way you hit road blocks and hardships, but it's how you rise above the lies and jealousy that speaks to the character of not only yourself, but of the people that believe in you. I have always held truth to be of the utmost value.

Let me address some toxic lies that are being hurled by those who claim to represent the same beliefs about national security that I do.

First, it was brought to my attention over the last week that some people were concerned about allegations made against me with regards to Facebook friends and a band that appeared on my Facebook profile. Out of the 2,200 friends on my Facebook page, two apparently had or have some association with groups that do NOT represent my beliefs, particularly regarding illegal immigration.

When this was brought to my attention I immediately removed and blocked the two individuals in question, because I stand against illegal immigration with no hatred in my heart for any person, race or religion. I support LEGAL immigration and always pay homage to the millions of hardworking immigrants that have made our nation the beautiful place that it is today. I believe that "illegal" has no race and has no social standing. I am opposed to lawbreakers that damage the good and noble name of all those whom migrate to this country legally every year.

When I learned that these two individuals were connected to my Facebook account I was outraged, disgusted and angry. I am a person from a culturally diverse family and I am extremely proud of that.

Secondly, apparently there was a band that has some form of hatred in their lyrics on my Facebook profile. I assure you that I had never heard the lyrics of this band - which I shall not name because I refuse to advertise for them. I do not have the ability to do a background check on every person or band out of thousands that I come into contact with on Facebook. To link me with this band is absurd and was done with malicious intent. I will have no part of it.

I will never subscribe to a person or group that chooses to hate others for any reason. I find it insulting to be accused of such beliefs. These allegations are unfounded and their claims are baseless.

All that I do comes from a caring and concern for the people of this nation. I have witnessed first hand what happens when national security isn't a primary concern in our nation. My family and many other families all suffered incredible losses on 9/11. I fight because I believe that we are a nation of laws and that the law should apply to everyone equally without exception.

Lies and misinformation will not derail me from my mission. I will pray for those who have spread these lies, that they some day see the error of their ways.
I am determined to put on the largest rally in support of Arizona and the rule of law that our nation has ever seen. It brings me great honor to have you continue to believe in me - and stand with me - as this is all about our survival as a nation. The integrity of this important and patriotic event shall not be infringed upon or sabotaged.

A month ago I made a promise to hold a rally in support of Arizona and I will keep my promise to all of you no matter what is thrown into our path. When the truth is guiding you, you can never be wrong. I am grateful to have so many national leaders and elected officials standing with us. There is no greater honor for me than to make this rally a tremendous success for all of you brave patriots in Arizona and every patriot across this great nation.

I will never resort to the tactic of spreading hateful allegations. I would rather funnel that passion and desire into standing up and doing the right thing, not only for my country, but also for all of you out there who believe in this noble and just cause.

Thank you very much and may God bless you all,

Daniel Smeriglio

Gheen has very little credibility with me anymore. I've seen him cause problems at other functions and try to discredit people who he simply didn't like on a personal level and nothing more. Gheen needs to put his ego in check. I'll see what I can get from those on the inside and what they have to say of this.

Sadly, this is the main problem with the grass roots border security movement in this country. Too much ego, and not enough camaraderie.

Boy, is that the understatement of the year!

I just received an email back from those who are coordinating the rally and they stand by the post you made of Daniel Smeriglio's statement. Gheen has really shot himself in the foot on this one. He's gaining more 'anti Gheen' activists by the minute. Well he did it to himself. It's a small world, and Gheen is really fencing himself in more and more each day.

Well this is a can of worms I can't pass on

I have bit my tongue and offered Gheen help more than once

Offer help and have your hand bitten off gets old after a while

From what I've seen and know first hand is that he is an arrogant egomaniac
He talks down to people and its time someone knocked him off his pedestal,

I have a ton of respect for Glenn Spencer and yet he disses Glenn at every turn.

Bottom line , Gheen has a good little racket going with alipac , I guess you have to give him credit for having a great scam going , I hear it pays him pretty well.

Just as a footnote

The minute he slagged on Tancredo , he lost me and probably a whole lot of other people.

I have no higher respect for anyone in this movement than Tancredo
