Michael Lewis Arthur Meyer and Veterans on Patrol

| June 18, 2018 | 62 Comments

There’s a conspiracy brewing just outside Tucson Arizona about a “child sex-trafficking camp” found by a homeless veteran advocacy organization called “Veterans on Patrol (VOP)“. The group was founded by Michael Lewis Arthur Meyer who presents a veteran image, he wears dogtags on the outside of his clothes, but actually he has never served in the military. He doesn’t claim to be a veteran, but he also doesn’t disabuse people of that notion.

We first wrote about Meyer and VOP when he tried to kidnap Jon Ritzheimer for his own good from the Malheur phony soldier convention in Oregon.

Now, they claim to have discovered a child-sex trafficking camp and markers for a corridor for bringing children to the US.

The Southern Poverty Law Center says that Stuart Rhodes and his Oathkeepers have joined with VOP in their conspiracy – a conspiracy that even Alex Jones has avoided.

Rhodes, whose group claims to be made up of tens of thousands of current and former law enforcement and military personnel, posted a “call to action” on the Oath Keepers website on June 6, telling his members to go to Arizona to help with an “operation” begun last month by Michael Meyer, who commonly goes by the name Lewis Arthur.

That alone would scare me away from the nuthatchery in Tucson.

From NBC News;

An armed group called Veterans on Patrol is demanding that authorities recognize a homeless camp they found on private property to be a child sex-trafficking camp.

Authorities have found no evidence that there was a child-sex camp on the site, even though they have brought in investigators and a police cadaver dog to search the area. But the lack of evidence has done nothing to prevent these claims from catching on among far-right online conspiracy theorists.

Since he’s a felon, Meyers cannot touch a firearm and he claims that his group isn’t armed.

Of course, the media is comparing this to the “Pizzagate” incident where conspiracy-minded people thought that Hillary Clinton and her crew were hiding children in the basement of DC pizzeria which attracted nutty-ass Edgar Maddison Welch who fired a rifle into the floor of the pizzeria, for some reason.

The fact that authorities found no evidence to support Meyer’s claims have not slowed him down. Meyer contends in his videos that local law enforcement has destroyed evidence of child sex trafficking at the camp, but can still generally be trusted. The federal government, however, described on the group’s Facebook page as “corrupt,” could be hiding something nefarious at the camp, Meyer suggests.

For these nutjobs, the lack of proof only reinforces their beliefs.

    How many names does this whack job go by, anyway? Does he also call himself Willie Pete or Coyote Joe?

    Seriously, if he isn’t caught and neutered, someone else is going to get hurt. Running a scam is no way to spend your days, fella.

      ‘Louie Prepper’ and ‘Prepper Louie’ and an annon ‘call sign'(but that’s ‘classified’ to all but his close friends) Oh, almost forgot he’s a ‘homeless veteran grief counselor’ too… just ask him!
      Unemployed back to at least 2007 when he ‘walked with the devil’, but he’s been saved now and started a ministry down here, for homeless vets of course!
      ‘Vet’ gig wasn’t working too well, but since the ‘child sex camp’ discovery it’s pretty good now with the gift card donations deal, just bought a vehicle cashing in pre-paid debit card donations… to find ‘more homeless vets on the streets’ and ‘rescue cartel sex trafficked children’.
      To those that know him here he’s a scamming hoot, but he knows how to work the social media. Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if he caught some lead in the teeth tomorrow…. lol

        “to find ‘more homeless vets on the streets’”

        Sounds like my basement boy nephew who needs a new computer so he can “look for a job”. His fibromangina claim with SSDI got denied. He is only a half nephew so I have that degree of separation going for me.

      And coming up next on, “Live PD!”

      Yeah. My latest guilty pleasure.

    No comment, I’m totally confused.

  3. MrBill says:

    Yup, lack of evidence only shows how strong and extensive the conspiracy is.

  4. Martinjmpr says:

    Shemagh? Check
    American flag baseball cap? Check
    Veteran style beard? Check.
    Are those Oakleys on his cap? I assume they are.

    This guy seems like the REAL DEAL.

    Oper8r as f**k.

  5. Martinjmpr says:

    You know, I sometimes miss the days when veterans weren’t so revered by the public.

    It made it less likely that morons like this would pretend to be veterans.

    • 5JC says:

      Nah, there were millions of fake Vietnam Vets prior to 9/11. They just needed it as an excuse to tell lies about veterans from a position of authority. And about get sympathy for being locked in a tiger cage while their buddies were forced to play Russian Roulette.

  6. JBUSMC says:

    When I saw this on the news awhile back I think there was a former SEAL with this group. Or am I thinking of something else?

    “far-right online conspiracy theorists”

    Isn’t that what (name witheld) used call TAH?

    Just moved from the Tucson area a week ago
    I can’t say I’ll miss the heat. But I’m still making trips back for my VA care because it
    Closer then Albuquerque.
    I’m at a loss for all the homeless people there claiming to be
    VETs I could never figure it out
    I helped with a homeless vet census a few years back and out of 1000 plus people
    We found only one was even close to being a vet
    But he was given a OTH the 18 others i never heard anything more about what the status was

  10. HMC Ret says:

    The camo cover, massive scarf and multiple layers of clothing add authenticity to whatever he says/claims to be. I’m sure there are multiple tats, a Harley, a mutt and several rows of ribbons involved, also. Let’s all dress up and play pretend. Seems more like a waste of space than anything else. sarc/

  12. Old Trooper says:

    I’m curious as to how he came to his initial conclusion that the homeless encampment was used for child sex slaves. I have heard that that does, indeed, happen, however, I want to know how he came to that conclusion about that particular camp. Since he is so reluctant to provide evidence; it shows him to be full of shit.

  13. SFC D says:

    Guy operates “bases” in Arizona ostensibly to help homeless vets. He was operating a basecamp in the Sierra Vista area for awhile, couldn’t get permission from landowners or authorities to stay up and running. I visited a couple times to see what they needed, seemed to be legit. Absolutely would not take cash, they would accept gift cards from the nearby Valero so they could buy propane. I still had that uneasy feeling. Now I see VOP ranks right up there with the 3 percenter bunch and the various militias that like to patrol the border. Nope. I want to see FOIA 214’s on the entire group.

    • Skippy says:

      My ole platoon Sargent who lives down there tried to help to at first. He said his ole DI side kicked in because he felt like he was being BS’d
      And it never helps when your talking about time spent in the sandbox and the person you are talking to doesn’t have a clue WTF you are talking about
      Because they were never there to begin with

    • rgr769 says:

      In my brief experience with a state department of veterans affairs, most of these “veterans” supposedly helping “homeless” veterans are scammers and phonies. They run these NGO programs for “veterans” because they are getting money from gov’t agencies or other charities to do it. I found many of the purportedly “homeless veterans” are the same bums looking for a freebie and many of them are not veterans or have the stellar military service of Jessie MacBeth.

    “For these nutjobs, the lack of proof only reinforces their beliefs.”

    The less proof they have, the more they believe. This is valid for nutjobs on both sides of the aisle.

    Clown show.

  16. Hack Stone says:

    If they find the remains of Elaine Ricci there, at least we can have closure.

  17. 5JC says:

    Oh boy. Now that we have a brand new branch of the military we are going to enter into uncharted territory on military phonies.

    Space Force phony in 5,4,3,2…..

    Through the grape vine (No, really on the shitter wall at the bus station) I saw where this Meyer dude was going to court to change his name to Michael Nonvet Lewis Bullshitartist Arthur Wannabe Meyer Clueless. His personal creed is: “I’m not a vet, but I did stay in a homeless shelter last night surrounded by 11 other non-vet delusional apostles. We all are schmucks with dog tags. All vaccinated and up to date on our shots, I’m pleased to say.” If anybody needs us, please call 1 800 Vet Fake.
