• Here’s Executive Order 49:
• Credible intelligence evaluated, pro gun groups plan to assemble MONDAY and “storm capitol”

This brings back some bitter memories.
- A political rally to defend our constitutional rights in Virginia.
- A Democratic governor who declares a “state of emergency” to deliberately sabotage the event and throw it into chaos.
“RICHMOND, Va. — Bracing for the possibility of violence ahead of a rally to protest efforts to enact sweeping new gun control measures in Virginia, Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday declared a state of emergency and announced a temporary ban on weapons on the grounds of the State Capitol.
Thousands of protesters are expected to converge in Richmond on Monday to oppose a series of proposed restrictions on gun purchases expected to be taken up in the coming weeks by the Virginia Legislature, where Democrats control both chambers and the governor’s office for the first time in a generation.
The governor said on Twitter that the authorities had identified credible “threats of violence,” including from out-of-state militia groups and hate groups that planned disruptions. He said the authorities had also found extremist rhetoric online similar to what had been seen in 2017 before the Charlottesville rally, when white nationalists and counterprotesters clashed in a deadly fight over the removal of Confederate monuments. …”
- The FBI arresting dissidents who are attracted into going to the rally.
“WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. has arrested three men suspected of being members of a neo-Nazi hate group, including a former reservist in the Canadian Army, who had weapons and discussed traveling to a pro-gun rally next week in Richmond, Va., in anticipation of a possible race war.
The men were taken into custody on Thursday morning as part of a long-running investigation into the group, known as The Base. The men were charged with various federal crimes in Maryland, according to the Justice Department. They were scheduled to appear in federal court before a judge on Thursday afternoon. …”
I’m not going to Virginia to get f***ed again over guns and monuments after what happened last time in 2017. I am still dealing with the fallout.
Back then, we all thought we were going to just another demonstration – one of several that had occurred that year – only to find out after arriving that day on the ground that there was going to be no police protection, that the Democratic governor was sabotaging the event and that the Charlottesville Police and Virginia State Police were there to fight us and to deliberately push us into Antifa in order to create a violent spectacle for the mainstream media.
Do you remember the reaction to Unite the Right? We were all denounced as evil and thrown under the bus by cowardly mainstream conservatives and Republicans. Now it is happening all over again and they are the ones who are going to this gun rally in Richmond. It should be interesting to see if Antifa comes out and starts attacking everyone again and the Virginia State Police arrest anyone on the Right who fights back in self defense. DeAndre Harris earned over $150,000 on GoFundMe by going to Charlottesville and attacking people returning to their cars.
