Updated! Rally for Trump Stunning Beyond Belief!

Yesterday, literally hundreds of thousands of patriots of all colors, creeds and ages descended on the Nation’s capital to send a message of support to the President and to protest the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election and the media’s coronation of King Joe and Queen Kamala.

I am so glad I was there or I wouldn’t have believed it. Reading news accounts in the mainstream media last night and this morning confirmed again what a lying bunch of partisans control the media.

Look at this headline from an AP news story:

Thousands rally behind Trump, believing he won race he lost

AP declares the race over even as counting and lawsuits continue. And “thousands.”  I’m telling you there were hundreds of thousands, but they could have been forgiven if they had at least said ‘tens of thousands.’

Estimating would be almost impossible because the first wave filled the entire length of Pennsylvania Avenue from Freedom Plaza to the Supreme Court about a mile across all lanes and on the sidewalks.  Then an hour or so later an entire additional wave filled the same space as the new group of marchers made it to the Supreme Court steps.

And, virtually all of the mainstream media reported that there was violence “on the margins.”  I was there for hours and saw NO violence, only passionate and courteous people who believe the election was stolen. Yes! Stolen!

Here I am surrounded by Virginia patriots and hundreds of thousands of America Firsters from across our great country!

I was there for the big Tea Party rallies of a decade ago, but this beat anything from that era. Yesterday, like ten years ago, the mainstream media, the fake news, downplayed the enormity of the patriot crowds that gathered then and now.

Yesterday was different for another significant reason summed up in one word—diversity.

Tea Party rallies were largely middle to upper class mostly white Americans, while the diversity represented in the crowd yesterday was remarkable.  The supporters of this President, who came to Washington on short notice, are from all walks of life economically and were representative of the ethnic diversity of America. There were people of color sporting their Trump shirts and hats, large numbers of Hispanics and Asians waving Trump and American flags everywhere.

A Chinese woman came up to my friends and I outside the Supreme Court and implored us to fight the “demon” Chinese Communist Party which she feared would have more power in America if Biden is installed as President.

Again, as I saw no violence for the many hours I was there, it surely happened when night fell and the Antifa/BLM thugs came out like rats and roaches as darkness came to DC.

Here the Biden supporters attack the Willard Hotel:

And, here are Biden voters attacking Trump’s people who dared to stay on a Washington street after dark.

 

I have searched through dozens of media accounts and photos but none, including mine, could do justice to the number of America Firsters! who came to Washington, throwing caution to the wind when it came to the Chinese virus, and clearly having decided that being there was more important than possibly dying.

Oh, and when you see accounts that no one was wearing masks, that is wrong.  Many people did wear masks.

Here are a series of still photos from NPR that I thought were mostly good, but you can tell the Lefties at NPR have added a bunch of photos that are meant for the elites to get a chuckle among themselves about the “deplorables” and “chumps” that make up Trump’s huge base.

First, do you want this America?

Happy patriot warriors!

Or, this America?

Biden supporters!

 

And, this man’s sign sums up why so many were willing to risk China virus death to be there! “Give me liberty or give me a 0.016% chance of death!”

And, sadly I never did see the Proud Boys that the mainstream media is so afraid of.  Here praying before the rally. Is there a Proud Girls group I could join?

 

Everyone was hoping to get a glimpse of the President, but alas he drove by early, mouthing “thank you,” before noon and before the most massive crowds had gathered.  Frankly, his motorcade would not have been able to get through the crowds as they swelled to fill that entire space by noon.

 

 

Were you there yesterday?  If so please comment and let us all know what you saw and heard!

P.S. Sorry in advance if Twitter ultimately deletes accounts and this post loses some good Tweets and videos.  I wouldn’t be surprised to find that happens.

Update! Fellow Marylander Gail Weiss shared her photo album with us.

She said “the diversity and sense of HUMOR of the crowd was what struck me.”

And, to wrap up, another reader from Maryland sent me this comment about the Proud Boys in response to me saying I hadn’t seen them:

I saw the Proud Boys twice. The first time was when they came marching down 13th Street into Freedom Plaza. They were all in black and in formation about five people wide — a lot of them. At first glance I thought they were Antifa because of the all-black clothing, but I soon saw that they weren’t. The second time was at the Supreme Court when again they came marching in in formation. They included several black guys. The first time they didn’t look at the bystanders but the second time they exchanged friendly looks with us. It felt kind of comforting having them there.

Michelle Malkin: Here Comes the Mob

The other day I directed you to Leo Hohmann’s ‘Dark Winter’ post in which he mentions Shutdown DC, a radical group prepared to hit the streets in Washington, DC (and beyond) on Election Day.

Michelle Malkin featured the progressive extremists in a column on Tuesday.

The part I found most interesting was that Shutdown DC has infiltrated many federal government agencies and is organizing hidden activists who work for you and me (the taxpayer!) to do whatever they can to undermine the Trump administration from within.

Who says there isn’t a deep state?

Here is Malkin:

The Mobilization of the Mob

Ready or not, here they come. The ground troops of the anti-Donald Trump resistance aren’t just biding their time until Election Day for Hidin’ Joe Biden. Hell no. They’re making their direct action checklists and checking them twice. They’re training for instigating.

No matter the outcome at the ballot box, the left-wing mob is prepared to disrupt and destroy nationwide in the name of preserving “democracy.”

[….]

Another key social justice player, ShutDown D.C., is teaming with Sunrise Movement guerilla warriors to mobilize students, community organizers and even federal employees to take to the streets on Nov. 3.

ShutDown D.C. anticipates that 10,000 protesters from a motley assortment of affinity groups will converge at Black Lives Matter Plaza to engage in “civil resistance” if President Trump tries to “steal the election.” A “Flying Bike Squad” is “coming together as a rapid response team,” according to organizers. If it’s anything like the skateboard squads and soup can squads who’ve used everyday items as weapons to beat Trump supporters, look for more blood to spill in the name of “peaceful protest.” Mass disruptions are planned at train stations and airports, on highways and in residential neighborhoods for at least the first full week after Election Day.

“We’ll keep it going until Trump concedes,” ShutDown D.C. threatens in its outline of a “No More Business As Usual” blockade across the country. “We could be in the streets throughout the fall and into the winter — maybe as lots of rolling waves of action or possibly as a few major tsunamis! In other parts of the country, as vote counts conclude, our focus will turn from protecting the vote counts to themselves being ungovernable.”

Here’s what has me especially concerned: The “deep state” Trump-haters are openly gearing up to do everything they can from inside the federal government to assist the resistance.

They had such fun shutting down DC in September 2019 to spread their message that the planet is on fire, they are back again because they want to help remove ‘orange man’ from the White House. Photos from 2019: https://www.gwhatchet.com/2019/09/23/photos-shut-down-dc-protesters-block-off-intersections-to-strike-climate-change/

And then from Shutdown itself, here is their call to action for federal workers.

If you are wondering why the agencies represented here deal mostly with the environment, it is because Shutdown DC is filled with climate activists who have promoted civil unrest in the past.

By the way, I know a lot of you patriots love the National Parks, but as a longtime defender of property rights for landowners around National Parks you need to know that, due to its voracious appetite for more land, the Park Service is not a good neighbor when the Dems are in control of the government.

‘Choose Democracy’ Claims it is Organizing to Stop Trump’s Coup

“When Trump a few weeks ago began saying he wouldn’t commit to a peaceful transfer of power, that’s when I decided I needed to do it.”

(Lisa Graustein)

 

Yes, this group of community organizers is planning to go to the streets at election time because they believe Trump will not leave office if he loses.  They think that Donald Trump is planning a coup.  Nevermind that Obama and his entire inner circle has been trying to illegally overthrow Trump for over four years.

They make it sound like they are going to bodily remove the President on November 4th, but no matter what happens, he is President until inauguration day in January (LOL! do they know that!).

This is a prime example of how the media (granted BuzzFeed “leans left”) carries the water for the Progressive Left and obviously is enjoying hyping the size of the Trump opposition.

The ‘star’ of this story is a humble former “public school teacher” who has been moved by the words of that meany in the White House to get politically active this year and has selected a group called Choose Democracy where she is putting in time as a volunteer (two hours a day!).

Here is Choose Democracy’s pledge:

 

From BuzzFeed News (hat tip Cathy):

This Is How Thousands Of Americans Are Preparing To Take On Trump If He Refuses To Leave Office

One day late last month, longtime activist George Lakey was yet again training people on how to peacefully resist a coup. But this time, he was not in Moscow or Bangkok or one of the many other far-off places where he has traveled over his 70-year career as a sociologist and writer promoting democracy and nonviolent forms of protest. He was in the United States, at his home in suburban Philadelphia.

On the other end of Lakey’s Zoom webinar were around 1,000 American voters — 500 more, he noted, than had shown up the week before — from around the country who were glued to their screens, taking careful notes.

As President Donald Trump has spent the last few months planting seeds of doubt about the integrity of the US’s electoral process and urging his supporters to “go into the polls and watch very carefully,” dozens of advocacy groups, mostly progressive, have been hard at work trying to organize and train everyday Americans for what to do if their democracy appears to fall apart before their eyes.

“When Trump a few weeks ago began saying he wouldn’t commit to a peaceful transfer of power, that’s when I decided I needed to do it,” said Lisa Graustein, a 45-year-old former public school teacher in Boston, of her decision to give up two hours of her day to partake in a training on the finer points of mass demonstrations, peaceful sit-ins, and putting public pressure on elected officials.

Lisa Graustein

Graustein, who now runs a food distribution center [see packing Goya beans photomust have been before Goya CEO came out for Trump!—ed], said she had been “semi active” in local political and activist causes in the past.

Still, that was a far cry from pondering the questions Lakey asked in the training, such as: Are you a person who will stand up to authority and be a voice for others? Or hearing Lakey assure the group that dictatorships fall when the masses rise up and that nonviolent resistance — like in Argentina in 1987 and the Soviet Union in 1991 — could be used to defeat a possible power grab by Trump.

But Graustein said she and all her friends and work colleagues are anxious about the election. “People not active in previous elections are active now,” she said. And so when someone in her Quaker community told her about the training, she signed up.

The idea behind the effort was to “actually help prevent” the possibility of a coup, explained Eileen Flanagan, who moderated the training with Lakey.

The training was organized by Choose Democracy, a Washington, DC–based group that describes itself as a “crew of organizers, activists, trainers, academics, and concerned citizens preparing for the scenario of a coup in 2020.”

So BuzzFeed reporter, Ukrainian-based Christopher Miller, wants you to believe that Lisa the food bank worker, just a typical American middle-aged woman, is motivated for the first time to go to the streets to throw ‘orange man’ from the White House.

But, hold on a second!

“Someone in her Quaker community” told her about Choose Democracy?  She didn’t know Daddy was its primary funder?

I checked Open Secrets on Choose Democracy and it seems that in mid September, someone with the same last name, Graustein, was the primary donor to the PAC Choose Democracy.

Related to Lisa Graustein? Sure looks like it.

Check out the Graustein Memorial Fund (these family trusts are where wealthy people can legally park money and then direct it at their pet causes.)

It seems that the fund has taken a “new direction” over the years helped along by William’s daughter Lisa.  See here.

Here is Lisa’s bio.  Oh, and her teaching job was at a public charter school, not at a “public school” in the traditional sense.

LISA GRAUSTEIN 

Lisa is a public school teacher, gay rights activist, artist, and member of our Board of Trustees. She is a facilitator with Beyond Diversity 101, which offers workshops that expose, stimulate and transform the dynamics of diversity at the root level. Learn more about BD101 here.

Check out Lisa’s presentation, From Genocide to Generational Continuity: Frames for Understanding and Transforming Education,on how the process of genocide – actual and symbolic – is woven into the fabric of our nation’s key institutions, including our education system. [Link appears to be dead!—ed]

Lakey is an oft-arrested Quaker

It seems pretty clear that Ms. Graustein is not a newbie to political agitation.

After all, she is a Quaker.

Most Americans don’t know that the ‘Friends’ (aka Quakers) are an extreme leftwing political group.

I wrote about them at RRW and elsewhere over the years because they have worked closely with pro-Palestinian and Islamic supremacist groups.

You will see at the Wall Street Journal that they are aggressively anti-Israel.

Be sure to read more of the BuzzFeed story that never mention’s Lisa Graustein’s connection to the source of money that is going to organizing spearheaded by an infamous community organizer, George Lakey.

One last thing….

I see at Open Secrets that Choose Democracy had not spent any of the Graustein’s money, or anyone else’s, through the end of September, so this PAC isn’t contributing to the Biden campaign, or any other campaign it seems.

Note again that 6 donors gave the vast majority of the funds Choose Democracy has available.

Makes me wonder if they are saving their bucks for street action—hiring agitators, covering their expenses, and buying ‘supplies’ as they plan to storm Washington, DC. and the Trump White House.

Don’t miss my post yesterday on Leo Hohmann’s post in which he directs our attention to Shutdown DC.

Alert! Are YOU on the Target List? Will Antifa and BLM be Able to Find YOU?

This is one of the most shocking things you might see in this never-ending year from hell.

A mysterious group has made available the names and addresses of hundreds of thousands of Trump donors.  There can only be one reason for this—it is a target list! And, they want you to be afraid!

From Gateway Pundit: (Hat tip: Florida friend)

Mysterious “Donald Trump Watch” Website — With Offices in China — Reveals Addresses of Local Trump Donors for Antifa and BLM Terrorist Targeting

 

Far left operatives created the Donald Trump Watch website recently to reveal local Trump donors in your community.

Users are able to punch in the address of any location in the country and a map will show you the name and address of any Trump donor in the area.

The website is using FEC data to target Trump voters and donors.

According to the website they provide the names and addresses of “Americans who Give Money to Support a Racist.”

[….]

The only reason for calling Trump a racist and doxing his supporters on-line is to let BLM and ANTIFA know where we live.

More here.

I looked for my name and it wasn’t there, but realized that it must be because I gave through the RNC. I did find friends!  It is real!

And, if they are successful in frightening patriots this time, it will have a chilling effect on anyone considering donating to a future America First presidential candidate.

Will be watching for a Tucker Carlson report on this!

Surprise! Not! Gun Sales Through the Roof as Election Approaches

So how is your prepping going?

There are a few good articles today at Survival Pulse, the news aggregation site for stories on prepping, politics and survival generally.

From Personal Defense World:

Reported Biden Poll Lead Continues to Drive Gun Sales Across US

Though it’s getting little news coverage outside the 2A community, the issue of guns continues to shape the landscape of this presidential election. The specter of an ominous gun control platform hangs over the Biden-Harris ticket. And the Biden promise to clamp down on firearms is driving gun sales in a year where new gun ownership was already exploding like never before.

This past year has already seen gun sales grow in record numbers. First a global pandemic put the country on edge when runs on supplies sent many first-time buyers out to gun stores. Then social unrest exploded into the streets, so more people raced to gun stores in droves. Now the most anti-gun ticket in this country’s history attempts to gain control of the White House. And the American people are talking with gun purchases.

More here.

And, here is a very important story by Bill White about Situational Awareness.

What level are you: White, Yellow, Orange, Red or hopefully not Black?

From Survivopedia

How’s Your Situational Awareness?

A lot of people have been talking about the potential of a second civil war lately, with both sides of the political aisle saying that the other side will be the ones to start it.

Actually, it will be started by extremists, regardless of which side they’re on. Quite possibly, it will be extremists on both sides, dragging the rest of us into a conflict that nobody will win.

Should such a thing happen, the danger factor in all our lives will go up by at least a few notches. Just taking the dog for a walk could become dangerous, as it is in any war-torn nation. That danger will obviously be the highest in the areas where the fighting is fiercest; but due to the nature of war, and especially of this potential war, violence could break out anywhere, anytime.

We will all need to be on our guard, constantly, as none of us will know when a dangerous situation might foment around us. In order to avoid that danger, we’re going to have to be looking ahead, seeing what may be coming. For that to happen, we’re going to have to have a very good idea of what’s going on around us. In other words, we’re going to need to have excellent situational awareness.

And this is a good warning from Robert Wheeler at Organic Prepper.  It is not just about China!

Food Shortages Hit China: There Is “not…enough fresh food to go around”

 

Over the past few weeks, I have been writing articles regarding a coming food shortage. I’ve been pointing out that the food shortage is going to hit the United States hard but that it is also going to hit the rest of the world.

Follow that link at Organic Prepper about a coming food shortage for previous recent posts on the food supply chain.

Some past posts of mine on the general topic. There is no downside to being prepared, just don’t let it put you in panic mode!
