There's gonna be a "rally" at the Capitol in September??

Last edited Sat Aug 7, 2021, 08:28 AM - Edit history (1)

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/matt-braynard-protest-capitol-riot_n_610c5c6be4b05f8157079a71

The former data chief for Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign has announced a protest next month at the nation’s Capitol — to rail on behalf of so-called “political prisoners” charged in the Jan. 6 insurrection.

“We’re going back to the Capitol, right where it started. And it’s going to be huge,” Matt Braynard told former White House strategist Steve Bannon as he announced the rally on Bannon’s podcast last week. 

The protest, “Justice for J6,”  has been set for Sept. 18 at the Capitol. It’s being orchestrated by the group Look Ahead America, headed by Braynard.

which was to promote a group that seems bereft at how bills become laws.

And it also neglects to mention that the SCOTUS had basically only allowed it to continue through to when it did only because it was set to expire at that time.

The hope here is that it can remain in place until some final death knell to it absent CONGRESSIONAL action, not Executive action. It was something that should have been included in the last stimulus and is something that needs to be extended by legislation.

But there really needs to be a "#OccupyStateLegislatures" to distribute the funds already allocated.

The moratorium has already been challenged in court and one would hope it doesn't get an enforcement stay pending further court actions.

The issue is that some folks just don't know how bills become law and how they require both chambers. Pelosi knew exactly what the issue was and negotiations were ongoing and reached an impasse. And even if there was an agreement, it would never pass a cloture vote in the Senate.

What the CDC has done is now going to be tested in court. Pray that they don't immediately put a TRO on its implementation.

because the money to help them is sitting in the state treasuries unspent. Literally billions that was part of the "American Rescue Plan" to help them pay their rent.

The states have been slow to distribute the funds and make contact with those in need - some because they were trying to bring new systems online and are working through that process and others due to being a bunch of fucking RW douchebags.

The money to keep them in their homes and apartments is sitting right there in the state treasuries. MAKE the states distribute it.

Don't sit back - contact the municipal, county, and state Housing Departments and find out how to get what is DUE. Otherwise the same RW loons who "occupied Congress" will encourage their RW loon Congress members to take the money away from those tenant/landlord rent assistance programs (they have already started doing some of that during the Infrastructure Plan pay-for negotiations).

need to pay their bills? I'm not sure when the free rent started, maybe a year ago, so a monthly
rent of say $700 would put these people in debt for $8400. Are some people in dire straights? Sure.
Are some people taking advantage of the benefits? Probably.

Gaetz, Greene and Gohmert get 'locked out' of jail during stunt to visit Jan. 6 'political prisoners'

https://www.rawstory.com/matt-gaetz-marjorie-taylor-greene-jail/



"Conservative news outlets OAN and RSBN covered the lawmakers' attempt to enter the facility. The stunt was billed as an attempt to check on the welfare of Jan. 6 "political prisoners."

But before Gaetz could open the door, it was locked by an officer.

"They think we're trespassing," Greene complained."

I hope there are plans to mobilize law enforcement or the national guard to deal with these traitors.

Other than that, this is probably another scam meant to separate magats from their money. I'm not quite sure how I feel about that last part. They kind of deserve to be separated from their money.

President Biden is in charge now, not the Rancid Mango, which means this thing will be handled as it should be.

Counter protesters showing up would just create confusion for Capitol Police and any other security forces deployed to help them. It would also give the other side ammunition (photos, video clips) to use against us to "prove" that the left is responsible for any violence that occurs. Just think how much they would love that!

"We" do not need to be there. "We" need to support our president by staying the hell away and letting the Capitol Police and other security forces do their job.

Ignoring the ongoing temper tantrums of these ignorant, childish, ass hats is exactly what got us here. We cannot and I will not ignore them. Everything they do needs to be sternly called out for the treason it is. We appeased the south after the Civil War and the south is still celebrating the war of treason that they lost!! Push back and push back hard! They are nazis, fascists and white supremacist and we must crush them. There is no middle ground here. America is at risk.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Edmund Burke (maybe made this statement)

I will not do nothing while the fascist right grows. They want us to sit down. No I will not do it!

Without sounding condescending I suggest you read some 1930s German history. Consider the way much of the world reacted to Hitler and his party of fascist pigs.

America is at a crossroad again. Pick carefully your path. ANTIFA is a great American organization. We need to support them.

That will go over well. Guaranteed to bring them out in droves.
