    CornCobb's Ancestry.com DNA Results


    ]I returned from a shopping trip to Minot and had an Ancestry.com email that my genetic test results were completed. Firstly, I'd like to thank my friends who supported me from the inception when I was defamed by junk science. Those are: James Bowery, April Gaede, Alex Linder, Jeff Schoep, my Rev., James Logsdon, Tom Metzger, Bob in DC (Wall St Wolf of 4th Position), Glen Miller, and James Hawthorne. There are others too. I consider Bowery and Linder very great teachers of mine; I'm appreciative to have been associated with them.

    A relative few remained logical here. The "ancestrybydna" test checks for 176 alleles out of over 600,000. The ancestry.DNA test does over 500,000.
    Autosomal DNA testing comparison chart - ISOGG Wiki
    The former is being hawked at bulk and major discounts to high school sociology teachers to hoodwink and mindscrew young Whites, especially males.

    I'm sure many of my enemies will grasp at the 3% Iberian thing--with the Moor invasion and still try to make much of that aspect. Go ahead. You then basically have to defame everyone in Spain and Catalonia, which some of you will be quite willing to do. Additionally, the Iberian peninsula shared being a homeland of the Solutreans with present-day France.

    I did all this--the original test--because I thought they would use a reliable test. It did occur to me that they might use junk science (I thought the chance relatively small, but there)...and in that event, my mental "pre-algortihm" was that there would be a huge outcry and denigration of myself, after which I would prove to doubters how--in a very personal sense and with the most serious of setbacks--Jew defamations, persecutions and manipulations work.

    I also recall seeing Matt Hale on 80's TV talk shows. Matt's younger than me. I am 63. He made me remember when I was 11 & 12, reading of Hess and Rockwell. I recognized immediately, and thought it amazing that a 19 yr old kid was about the only one if the nation, along with David Duke, to speak truth publicly on the plight of our people. Linder says we all don't do this because it is easy--we do it because it is hard and necessary. I am proud that i have been jailed in 4 countries for speaking openly--Finland, Estonia, Canada and USA and I was convicted in absentia for speech crimes by the Kingdom of Sweden.

    Yes, I "get" that that my echo chamber cannot possibly rival theirs. Bob almost always reminds me when we talk that about 20% of the White population has a broadly general agreement with our takes on things...that is, they "feel" about our present circumstance, intuitively, as we do--those are the ones we wish to reach.

    My family pics are on White Nations. Here is a link my direct paternal ancestor, Henry S Cobb of Plynouth, who was with John Lothrop. They claim six presidents are descended from Lothrop himself. Clint Eastwood too! Cobb died in Barnstable, MA. http://www.plimoth.org/media/pdf/cobb_henry.pdf I am via the second wife, Sarah Hinckley, whose father was for years head of Plymouth colony. Henry was born in Kent, on the Jute side of the area.

    The Sundance movie has played at a festival in Boulder and will soon again in a Dallas festival and in Canada. I think they are trying to get it distributed in theaters by working up positive reviews on tour. On their FB page, a Jew named Kohn (I think it is) has an interesting soundcloud mention at about 19 min into the file. There are teaching aspects in the work which are useful to our cause.

    I filmed myself spitting in the tube and held it up so the long sample number could be seen. Then i held it all on cam and dropped it in the Minot PO. Will put it up on You Tube soon.

    I'd appreciate it if honorable men will stop calling me 14% black. It's the Jewized way, if you persist. I wish my Wiki could get edited. They banned me for these most slim of non-reasons. They currently have me listed as part African American. More Jew lies. I hope you can now see that at this late date in the matter.

    I hope Metapedia will write about this Jew ruse. Others will be made even more aware of all we face.

    One thing that strikes me about multiculturalism is that contrary to what might seem somewhat plausible in a fantasy of fairness where, given that whites are to replaced by 'diversity', this 'diversity' would hold whites in high regard for what it has given humanity, the white race is expected to not only give up power to the teeming hordes of aliens (terrifyingly on display at 4:30 in the linked video), but they are expected to be vilified and shamed by their replacements. Not only do we have no right to form ethnic defensive organizations, we no right to take any possession of anything we have ever done ever in our entire history. We are simply to be ruthlessly and pitilessly exterminated and the carcass of our civilization handed to outsiders. And even beyond this, no one is to even know that this is simply a case of genocide. It just is. It just MUST be done without question.

    The reason media organizations have not responded to your emails and phone calls:

    Western Voices World News defines DYNAMIC SILENCE as:

    Dynamic Silence was invented by Rabbi Feinberg of the American Jewish Committee in 1947 as a method of closing off all access to the public media - and thus the larger culture - for people or organizations deemed to have an unacceptable point of view. In spite of minor changes and adaptations, it can still be understood as being comprised of two parts. In the first part, unfavored individuals are denied unmediated exposure to the public. In the second part, only negative aspects of the unfavored individuals are reported. This starts a downward spiral of de-legitimization in the public eye in which the harder unfavored individuals try to get public exposure, the more negative and unflattering that exposure becomes until, finally, nobody wants to be associated with the ideas of beliefs of the unfavored individuals.

    Solomon Andhil Fineberg

    Rabbi Solomon Andhil Fineberg (November 29, 1896 - February, 1990) was a prominent member of the American Jewish Committee who developed the policy of "quarantine" or "silent treatment" for individuals and organizations the Jews wanted the news media to ignore. Usually the persons or groups in question were opponents of Jewish supremacism. The Jews called their technique "Dynamic Silence" and use it against Gerald L.K. Smith and George Lincoln Rockwell.

    Fineberg was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and later studied at the University of Cincinnati. He graduated in 1917 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He served two years in the US Marine Corps during World War I from 1917 to 1919. After the war he became National Chaplin for the Jewish War Veterans. In Cincinnati he studied at Hebrew Union College and was ordained a Rabbi in 1920. In 1932 he was awarded a PhD from Columbia University.

    That's what I like is while the CreaTards are busily working theysselfs into a lather in order to spend the worst parts of the winter season getting free room and board and working really really hard to get another 5-15 years as a guest of the state, them See-Eye Dentists sorta avoid the botheration of it all. You CreaTards really go all out to get into trouble over nothing.

    I'd like to thank you, Craig, for cummin' onto StormFront to tell us how you saved up money over the cold North Dakota winter to buy yourself a whole new DNA test. Most of you CreaTards, especially those who are allegedly 14% of the neggroid and 86% of the Tribe of Heeb, would be spending it on weed or hookers, but not you. Not that there are likely very much weed or hookers to be found on the lone prairie of North Dakota, especially in the cold, cold frosty wintertime. I suspect that Jeff Schoep would have spent his and his followers' last shekels differently. By the way, if you had given over the old creamery building to some Aryan Nations faction instead of the Schoepster, it might still be rotting away in Lieth/CornCobbville. . . But sufficient unto the day is the fuktardivity thereof.

    So can you go back over to Rabbi Linder's Bagel-Bakery & Free-Range ZOGtard corral and Colostomy Bag? Or how about the Stanley Diggs Rape Dungeon / Whigger Notions.cum forum? And if you can get the $10,000 dollars in silver back from Ferd does that mean a Lifetime Membership for you and nine other lucky CreaTards? Why itz gonna be a regular Liethopian, er, CornCobbian CreaTarded invasion.

    And don't worry about Visser. Saint Karl of Gharst, who drove two serpents out from Kalispell but left the camp follower, is a lot meaner and tougher, as you can truthfully attest.

    Default White supremacist wants to take over, rename town after Donald Trump

    White supremacist wants to take over, rename town after Donald Trump


    ANTLER, N.D.--After white supremacist Craig Cobb tried and failed to start a whites-only enclave in the tiny North Dakota town of Leith, he set his sights on another community: Antler, population 20-something.

    Recommended for you
    Northwestern Minnesota hit by second major storm in a week
    But establishing a presence in the town, just a few minutes from the Canadian border, has proved difficult for Cobb.

    Last month, he says, he bought $10,000 worth of property in the town's center from Jim Lozensky, who until recently was an Antler resident.

    The sale included an old bank and two nearby residential lots. Cobb wanted to turn the bank into a church for his racist religion, Creativity Movement, which teaches the superiority of white people. The residential lots would be for church members to settle and start a new community together.

    He also planned to change the town's name to "Trump Creativity," or "Creativity Trump," in honor of Donald Trump, who Cobb admires deeply.

    Needless to say, "Some of the citizens aren't happy with the situation," said Steve Watson, the sheriff of Bottineau County.

    Luckily for them, the properties are going to the city, rather than to Cobb, Mayor Bruce Hanson said.

    Lozensky, the property seller, "took a down payment from Cobb on the property, and the city made an offer also," said Hanson. Lozenksy decided to sell to the city.

    It cost the city about $35,000 to take over more than 20 of Lozensky's properties, Hanson said.

    Cobb, meanwhile, complains that he still has not received a deed to the property. He says the seller wants to reimburse him, but "I don't want the check. We want our church."

    Cobb said Lozensky backed out of their deal because of pressure from Antler residents, a claim Hanson denied.

    However, the mayor did admit that "people were kind of upset" about Lozensky, who recently moved away from Antler. Lozensky declined to comment for this story.

    Hanson acknowledged that the city bought the property to keep out Cobb, who lives in nearby Sherwood. "We don't want the guy in town," Hanson said. "I mean, who does?"

    Cobb said he and others in his church are "not trying to rule over other people at all."

    But he indicated that his intent is to bring in enough people to outnumber the town's voting population, which he estimated to be 20 people.

    Hanson said Cobb targets small towns for that reason. "It's not about democracy," Hanson said. "It's not about the American way."

    Cobb said his community, if realized, would not exclude nonwhites.

    So would he welcome black people?

    "'Welcome' is a strong word," he said. "We understand that they have a legal right."

    Residents of Leith recently attended an Antler town hall meeting to explain what happened in Leith, which Cobb tried to take over in 2013. He gained national attention for the failed effort.

    Hanson says the real driving force for Cobb is just that--media attention.

    "That's the bottom line with Craig Cobb. ... If I was you, I'd just ignore the guy."

    Default Plan to create white nationalist enclaves in Kansas and Nebraska roils residents

    Plan to create white nationalist enclaves in Kansas and Nebraska roils residents

    by Judy L. Thomas, jthomas@kcstar.com
    Kansas Shitty Red Star


    Corn Cobb's former hovel in Leith North Dakota in which CornCobb started the latest mess.


    A neo-Nazi who made headlines when he bought land in a small North Dakota town with plans to turn it into an all-white hamlet is now setting his sights on Kansas and Nebraska.

    Craig Cobb has purchased property in two small south-central Nebraska towns and inquired about property in two north-central Kansas towns, including Smith Center.

    Cobb said in an interview that he plans to sell the property at deep discounts to young white couples as part of an effort called Pioneer Little Europe that would create planned communities for white nationalists. The strategy, which was described earlier this year in a Star series about domestic terrorism, is a national movement.

    Cobb’s actions already have stirred fear in some of the Kansas and Nebraska communities.

    Once Cobb’s identity was discovered in the small towns, word circulated quickly and residents warned owners to be wary of selling property to him. In Red Cloud, Neb., dozens gathered for a town hall meeting.

    “There was a good showing of the people, good attendance,” Mayor Gary Ratzlaff told The Star. “Let’s just say everyone is concerned.”

    Cobb said other white nationalists have been buying up property as well.

    “We have property and people in place in the area,” he said. “I’d rather not speak to precisely what we have and what we bought except to tell you it’s a lot more extensive than just this.”

    Cobb purchased the Nebraska property at a Webster County sheriff’s sale on Sept. 23. He bought a house in Inavale for $3,410 and two properties in Red Cloud for $25 and $100.

    Cobb, who was raised in St. Joseph, Mo., first created a stir when he started buying plots in the tiny town of Leith, N.D., in 2011 and later announced plans to turn the area into a white enclave.

    Cobb bought some of the plots in the names of white supremacists, including Tom Metzger of White Aryan Resistance, Jeff Schoep of the National Socialist Movement and Alex Linder of Vanguard News Network. He flew Nazi flags on his property and sought to acquire enough power to run the town.

    But in 2013, Cobb was charged with seven felony counts of terrorizing some of the town’s residents with a gun. He was arrested that November in North Dakota, not long after attending a National Socialist Movement rally in Kansas City. After spending several months in jail, Cobb pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor menacing counts and one felony terrorizing charge and was sentenced to four years of probation.

    Cobb, 64, has been living in Sherwood, N.D., near the Canadian border. He’s the subject of a documentary, “Welcome to Leith,” that is now appearing in selected venues around the country.

    In Kansas, Smith County Appraiser Kathy Hansen said Cobb recently dropped by her office to ask about distressed properties in Smith Center, a town of 1,800 about 15 miles from the Nebraska border.

    “I didn’t have any idea who he was,” Hansen said. “I told him we’d just had a tax sale, so a lot of those properties had been purchased.”

    She said she gave Cobb the names of the owners of two properties he was interested in.

    “He asked about the little town of Lebanon, too, and wanted to know how they took care of condemnations,” she said.

    Hansen said Cobb also talked to the economic development director.

    “I knew he was a little different when he came in,” she said, “but I didn’t know like that.”

    Hansen said, however, that there’s nothing preventing Cobb from purchasing property in the county.

    When word spread, Hansen said, “A lot of stories were flying around town. Some had looked him up on the Internet and found out who he was. But at this point we have nothing showing that he’s bought anything in Smith County yet.”

    Still, residents are concerned. Someone posted a warning about Cobb on the Facebook page Discover Smith Center:

    “This man is trying to purchase run down property in Smith Center and Lebanon. Seller beware.”

    Cobb said he also checked out some property in Franklin and Riverton, Neb. He chose the areas in Kansas and Nebraska, he said, because “I’m on the council of the Creativity Movement, and it came to my attention that we have extensive people in that particular area.”

    The Creativity Movement, formerly known as Church of the Creator, promotes what it says is the inherent superiority of the white race.

    Cobb said he paid cash for the Red Cloud property. The money, he said, came from an insurance settlement he received after a tree branch fell on his vehicle during a windstorm.

    Cobb won’t become the official owner until a district court judge confirms the sale in court — something that could happen in the next several weeks. Cobb said he wasn’t sure whether he would move to Kansas or Nebraska or stay in North Dakota. He said he’s not trying to intimidate anyone by his actions and noted that he even called the sheriff in Webster County.

    “He was pretty nice, actually,” Cobb said. “I said, ‘I know you don’t want us in town.’ He heartily agreed.”

    A woman who answered the phone at the Webster County sheriff’s office Thursday said they were declining comment. The Red Cloud city attorney also declined comment.

    Cobb said he didn’t violate his probation by going to Kansas and Nebraska.

    “I went to visit my mom (in St. Joseph), and I asked my probation officer if he cared which way I came home, and he said no,” he said. “So I went directly west and directly north.”

    The Star interviewed Cobb for its domestic terrorism series. In the interview, Cobb described himself as a national socialist and said he was a friend of F. Glenn Miller Jr., the avowed neo-Nazi who was sentenced to death last month for killing three people outside Jewish centers in Overland Park.

    Cobb told The Star in that interview that whites needed to take the country back.

    “We’re literally in a racial war in this country,” he said, “and we’re losing really badly.”

    The Pioneer Little Europe movement was launched more than a decade ago. The movement’s 85-page prospectus describes it as “a conscious white community” that “comes to dominate a geographical area.”

    The manual describes a plan to “swamp” a target area by taking over its local political and economic systems, forcing out those who don’t share their beliefs. White nationalists would live in close proximity to businesses that offer cultural facilities and services, some of which would openly support their political revival.

    The movement has gained some traction in Montana.

    In the past few years, dozens of white supremacists have relocated to the Flathead Valley, where civil rights activists say they are forging alliances with anti-government Patriots because of their shared hostility toward the government.

    Those who monitor the white nationalist movement said Cobb’s actions are a concern.

    “This strategy is recognition that the rest of the United States is becoming too multiracial for these white nationalists,” said Leonard Zeskind, president of the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights. “For this plan to be ultimately successful and build a whites-only territory, it would require tearing the United States apart in a civil war.”

    Cobb said this week that building the Pioneer Little Europe network will “take some work.” He tried to purchase property earlier this year in Antler, N.D., but the city bought it to prevent him from getting control of it.

    “For this type of work, you have to be a zealot,” Cobb said. “I’m a zealot, and not so many are. But the system will create more and more over the coming decade.”

    Default What are this white supremacist's intentions with a tiny Nebraska town?

    What are this white supremacist's intentions with a tiny Nebraska town?

    Craig Cobb planned to start an Aryan community in Leith, North Dakota, three years ago but was convicted of terrorizing local residents. Now he’s buying property in Red Cloud, Nebraska – but for what purpose is unclear

    Adam Gabbatt in Red Cloud, Nebraska


    In September 2012, Craig Cobb moved to Leith, North Dakota, and started buying up property. Soon he owned 12 houses in the tiny town – population 24 – and announced his intention to create an Aryan community.

    Plans for the white supremacist town – it was to have been named Cobbsville – fell apart after Cobb was convicted of terrorising residents. The all-white utopia was also dealt a blow when a DNA test revealed that Cobb himself was 14% African.

    With his dream of a Caucasian conurbation in tatters, Cobb faded from public view. At least until last month, when he began buying property in another tiny town: Red Cloud, Nebraska.

    The prospect of Cobb moving to Red Cloud has people in the town worried. He has begun posting pictures and details of residents who have dared to criticise him on Stormfront.org, a neo-Nazi web forum whose users have been linked to a number of hate crimes.

    Officials are afraid to talk about Cobb. No one from Red Cloud’s city office would comment for this story. One employee said he did not want to speak on the record – “for fear of my own safety and that of my family”.

    No one in Red Cloud could be accused of overreacting. In Leith, Cobb daubed his properties with swastikas and flew separatist flags. When locals voiced their disapproval, he began patrolling the streets with a rifle.

    While Cobb was a high-profile resident of Leith, in Nebraska he has so far been a distant, ghoulish figure. Slim, bespectacled, and with long white hair and beard, he has been popping up sporadically in the Red Cloud area. He has also taken to posting selfies to a Facebook page, in front of a series of local landmarks.

    Physical interactions with locals have been brief. One man saw Cobb at an auction, bidding on a property. Others have seen him further south, near the Kansas border.

    Cobb’s secretive nature makes gauging his plans unclear. He told a local newspaper, the Kearney Hub, that he planned to fix up the houses and move in “nice, young white people”. But Cobb is a hard man to get in touch with. His self-taken photos have been posted to a public Facebook account, but it is unclear whether he runs that page himself, or a friend runs it, or both.


    The Guardian exchanged a series of surreal messages with whoever manages the account while in Red Cloud, but the person purporting to be Cobb didn’t agree to a meeting.

    While Cobb has not moved to Red Cloud yet – indeed his probation for terrorising Leith residents restricts his movements – his spectre looms large. In the local bar, the Palace, all the talk has been of the white supremacist.

    “That’s the main topic. Our mayor came in today and the first thing they said [pointing to customers] was, what are you going to do about these Nazis?” says Robin Meyer. She owns and runs the Palace, which has a long, low-slung bar running to the right. At the bar, five grey-haired men are sitting, watching three television screens. One is playing a car programme, the other two are showing Deal or No Deal.

    While Meyer is talking, the mayor himself, Gary Ratzlaff, walks in. “Our city attorney’s office is right around the corner,” he says when asked about Cobb. He would not answer any questions. Neither would the city attorney.

    The fear of commenting on Cobb is common. On Webster Street a young man with a beard and baseball cap will not talk: “I have a young son and I don’t want to be targeted by anybody.”

    The men in the Palace will not talk. “I don’t need any violence.”

    But there are some people who are standing up to Cobb. Mike Goebel is one of them. He grew up in Las Vegas but moved to Red Cloud 11 years ago. He’s a veteran who has done tours in Afghanistan, and has been a vocal critic of Cobb on various Facebook groups and in the local press.


    That has caught Cobb’s attention. He posted a link to Goebel’s Facebook page on Stormfront. Then he posted a link to Goebel’s wife’s Facebook page, along with a picture. The website is not to be taken lightly. In 2014 a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center found that Stormfront’s users were disproportionately responsible for major killings.

    Goebel invited me to talk to him at his house, where he has begun flying a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag, as a message to Cobb. Goebel, whose mother is Mexican, says he is not concerned about being listed on Stormfront.

    “I’ve never been one to run from confrontation and I’m sure as hell not gonna run from it now,” he says over a can of Busch Light. “If they want to come to my house, come on in. Actually don’t come in. And don’t threaten us. Because you will be answered.”

    ‘A white supremacist running around’
    The three houses Cobb has bought all have one thing in common: they are barely habitable. He owns one in the south of the town that he bought for $25. He snapped up another to the east, for $100. A third was purchased in the nearby town of Inavale. Cobb pushed the boat out on this one, paying $3,410 at a sheriff’s auction. All had been foreclosed due to taxes owed to the city.

    The $25 house is the worst one of the bunch. It looks like a $25 house. There are two foreclosure notices, dated 2014, pinned to a rotting front door. There is a partially collapsed porch, sheltering a couple of crushed Budweiser cans and two phone directories, long since turned to mulch by the rain.

    There is a hole in the roof. At the back of the house there is a toilet leaning against a wall. A door at the side has been broken in two, horizontally, and inside there are more empty Budweiser cans, along with some empty Dr Pepper cans. The floor has rotted away, revealing the pipes underneath.

    As I look at the house an old Ford Bronco pulls up. The two occupants are staring at me. They ask what I am doing there. A standoff continues for a few minutes. I think they might be white supremacists. It turns out they think I might be a white supremacist. Eventually we realise that none of us are white supremacists. The man in the car is Jeff Russell – he lives next door, and he is with his wife, Lisa.

    “I really don’t like the idea of a white supremacist running around,” Russell says. He is 52 and has been in his house – about 100ft away from Cobb’s – for 21 years. Cobb’s property has been empty for the past 15 years, he says. At night he sees racoons running in and out of the house through the side door. He doesn’t mind that, but he is worried about Cobb moving in and inviting like-minded people.

    “What if my grandson or my son or my daughter or somebody has a friend or a soon-to-be spouse or something that’s not the same colour as them? Do I have to worry about someone trying to shoot my grandson?

    “This town is so small he could take over here in a heartbeat.”

    Red Cloud is indeed small. The centre consists of one cobbled street – Webster Street – that runs north to south. On either side are redbrick buildings. Only one in three of the businesses are open.

    It is probably the depressed nature of this little town that attracted Cobb. Property is cheap: there are more foreclosed buildings that could be bought. It is rural: the nearest “big” town is Hastings, population 24,000. Hastings is a 50-minute drive to the north.


    A 10-minute drive west of Red Cloud is Inavale. Around 400 people live here, according to the sign welcoming you to the town.

    This is where Cobb bought his most expensive property, at a sheriff’s auction. Like the others, it is a one-storey house that has been seized, and sold, by the city after its owners failed to pay taxes. In this case the owner died seven years ago. The home is in better condition than the others in Cobb’s burgeoning portfolio. The paint on the wood-slatted walls is chipped and faded in places and completely worn away in others, but it looks sturdy enough. And there are no holes in the floor.

    Virgil Deisley lives next door. His own one-storey home is perhaps 30ft away across a dirt track that leads to a field beyond. Deisley has lived on the street, which is really more of an unpaved, desolate road, for 10 years.

    “I didn’t want anybody as a neighbour anyway. Let alone a jack-off like that,” he says.

    Deisley is 73, and retired 10 years ago after a career racing thoroughbred horses. He has a big, bushy moustache and is wearing a beige cowboy hat, flannel shirt, worn jeans and brown boots when I arrive. He is one of the few to have actually seen Cobb in Nebraska.

    Deisley went to the auction for the house. He wanted to buy it: “Just so no one else could live there”. He was outpriced early, he says, with Cobb determined to win.

    “There were other people bidding against him and he just kept upping and upping it,” he says.

    “He told one of the other guys that was bidding: ‘I’m getting it. I’m getting it.’”

    Like others, Deisley has heard of Cobb’s history in Leith. He said he had not “seen hide nor hair” of Cobb since he bought the property, but the white supremacist is the hot topic of conversation in such a small community.

    “I do not like to even think about him coming round here packing a gun,” Deisley says. “After I found out what kind of guy he is I just got sour on him and said: ‘No, I don’t want him here.’”

    Goebel and other residents have begun sharing information about Cobb and his plans on Facebook. There are also plans to raise money, through donations, to pay the taxes on the properties Cobb bought, so he would not be able to take ownership of them.

    In the meantime, however, Red Cloud’s residents do not know what is going to happen. In this tiny town, surrounded by corn fields in rural Nebraska, there is little they can do but wait.

    Default 'Welcome to Leith,' the story of Craig Cobb in N.D., to air on PBS

    'Welcome to Leith,' the story of Craig Cobb in N.D., to air on PBS

    By Forum News Service on Mar 19, 2016 at 6:02 a.m.


    LEITH, N.D. — "Welcome to Leith" is coming to a TV near you.

    The documentary, which chronicles white supremacist Craig Cobb's attempted takeover of Leith, N.D., will air at 7 p.m. April 6 and 1 p.m. April 24 on Prairie Public.

    Cobb moved to the town of 20-something in 2012 and was met resistance from residents when he started buying up property to create an all-white enclave. He eventually moved from Leith to Sherwood, N.D., after pleading guilty in May 2014 to one charge of felony terrorizing and five counts of misdemeanor menacing for when he conducted an armed patrol of property he purchased in Leith.

    Cobb made headlines again last fall when he tried to buy property in small towns in Nebraska and Kansas. But Cobb was unsuccessful and was met with the same resistance he did in Antler, N.D., and Leith.

    The documentary, directed and produced by Michael Beach Nichols and Christopher K. Walker, was screened Friday at the Fargo Film Festival and has also played at Sundance and South by Southwest.

    Default Vacancies up, room rates down for Oil Patch hotels

    Vacancies up, room rates down for Oil Patch hotels

    By Amy Dalrymple on Jul 24, 2016 at 9:00 a.m.



    As the Bakken Boom goes bust, the prices of everything goes down, especially hotel rooms


    DICKINSON, N.D. — The price of a hotel room in western North Dakota has dropped by as much as 30 percent in the past year as hotels see fewer oil workers.

    Average hotel prices in Dickinson, Williston and Minot ranged from $70 to $85 this June. Most recent occupancy rates were 43 to 55 percent, which is up compared to last winter but far below what those cities saw during the height of the Bakken oil boom.

    Tourism officials are working to get the word out that unlike a few years ago, cities in and around the Oil Patch have available hotel rooms at affordable prices.

    "Some people still believe there's no availability and they're $300 a night," said Terri Thiel, executive director of the Dickinson Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Things have really, really changed."

    The average Dickinson hotel room cost $77 a night in June, down about $30 from a year ago when the average price was $108, Thiel said.

    "You're seeing quite a drop," Thiel said.

    Hotel occupancy in Dickinson was 55.5 percent in June, slightly higher than a year ago, which Thiel said is partly due to an increase in visitation at Theodore Roosevelt National Park in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.

    Williston also has seen a drop in hotel prices of nearly 30 percent in the past year. The average daily rate for a Williston hotel room was $85 in June, compared to $117 a year earlier, said Amy Krueger, executive director of the Williston Convention and Visitors Bureau.

    "With the increased market, it has become more reasonable for travelers," Krueger said.

    Many hotels in the Bakken at one time served as crew quarters for temporary workers, driving prices up and making it difficult for leisure travelers to find rooms. Occupancy rates dropped significantly as new hotels and housing opened up, the price of oil dropped and many workers were laid off.

    Williston's hotel occupancy rate was 43 percent in June and about 30 percent for 2016 so far, Krueger said.

    While the hotels have seen a drop in workforce housing, weekend bookings are up this summer, a signal that more tourists are visiting the area, Krueger said.

    Visits to Fort Union National Historic Trading Post are up this summer and Williston expects a strong month for hotels in August when the city hosts the Babe Ruth World Series, Krueger said.

    In Minot, an average hotel room cost $70 in June, down from $90 a year earlier, and the latest occupancy rate was 48 percent, according to Visit Minot.

    The figures are a stark contrast to 2012, when oil drilling was at a high in North Dakota and Minot was recovering from the 2011 flood. That year, Minot ended the year with average hotel occupancy of 86 percent and average hotel room price of $130.

    Phyllis Burckhard, executive director of Visit Minot, said she'd like to see occupancy rates get back to at least 70 percent.

    Her organization is using social media to spread the word that Minot has available hotel rooms during major events such as the North Dakota State Fair, which runs through July 30, and the annual Norsk Hostfest in the fall.

    The strength of the Canadian dollar also plays a big role for Minot hotel business, Burckhard said, and hotels are trying to offer deals to entice more Canadian travelers.

    Williston also has started doing more promotion to Canada, including advertisements that Williston is only 180 kilometers away, Krueger said.

    "We have changed up some efforts to try to reach different people," Krueger said.

    Visitors to Dickinson are pleased with the increase in hotel options that resulted from the oil boom expansion, Thiel said.

    "We've gotten some very nice new properties out of it," Thiel said. "We've gotten choices that people are happy for."
