Beware Virginia – A Remarkable Confluence of Events…

There is a remarkable confluence of data-points surrounding a second amendment rally in Virginia this holiday weekend that bear a strong note of caution.  Something akin to an astroturf event appears in the background.  ♦ Data-points:

♦ Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is running for President.  Bloomberg has funded the majority of Virginia anti-gun legislators who are now proposing considerable restrictions on lawful gun ownership in the commonwealth.

♦ It is also worth noting in the wake of the astro-turfed Charlottesville narrative, the professional political messaging of the Democrat apparatus, via Joe Biden, proclaimed in April 2019 that Charlottesville represented “the battle for the soul of this nation.”

If there is one consistent aspect to DNC activists (Occupy Wall Street, Antifa etc.), it’s that they use the same playbook.

♦ Provoking civil unrest to achieve political objectives is a well known strategy of the Alinsky wing of the apparatus.  ie. “never let a crisis go to waste”; and they are very good at creating the appearance of an organic crisis.  It’s usually in hindsight when the astroturf originating the crisis is identified.

The reason the Antifa mob was able to attack the peaceful marchers was ONLY because the Charlottesville Police were ordered to stand down by the far-left Democratic Mayor and Governor (link)

As it was noted in the Charlottesville example, the authorities in Virginia purposefully funneled two activist groups together to create the conflict and crisis (‘Unite the Right’ and Antifa).  Consider the possibility of the same play-book being deployed this weekend for the second amendment rally at the Virginia capitol.

Situational Awareness – Take a look at how the authorities in Virginia have literally used chain link fences to fence-in the current demonstration venue.  One entrance, few exits:

The Virginia state Capitol building is surrounded by fencing, Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020 in Richmond, Va., in preparation for Monday’s rally by gun rights advocates. Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday, Jan. 15, announced a state of emergency and banned all weapons from the rally at the Capitol. (Hoffmeyer/Richmond Times-Dispatch via AP)

♦ Also, keep in mind how the national media are framing this: “Virginia has become Ground Zero in the nation’s raging debate over gun control.”

Just as the national media did with the “far-right” -vs- “Antifa” for the Charlottesville example, there is a much larger national narrative overlay being deployed.

♦ Also as noted in 2017, getting President Trump involved in the controversy is a way to keep the story on a national scale and politicize the crisis.  This is a presidential election year, and Democrats are attempting to converge a multitude of social issues for maximum electoral benefit.

♦ VA is an easy and convenient state for political narrative engineering.  The geography of Northern Virginia to DC planning headquarters; in combination with a massive media apparatus in close proximity; has made many Virginia events become national stories.

♦ Establish the narrative to be engineered by the Astroturf:

[…]  Virginia’s solicitor general, Toby Heytens, told Richmond Circuit Court Judge Joi Taylor on Thursday that law enforcement had identified “credible evidence” that armed out-of-state groups planned to come to Virginia with the possible intention of participating in a “violent insurrection.” (link)

♦ Identify who in the Trump orbit is telling POTUS to keep tweeting about the Virginia event, (yesterday and today) and there’s a strong possibility that person is a Judas Goat.

♦ President Trump is being drawn into the engineering.

♦ Former Robert Mueller special counsel lead FBI investigative supervisory special agent David Archey; a man who had to know -by design of the investigation itself- that the FBI was being used for a corrupt political operation; is now the head of the FBI field office in Richmond, Virginia.

A remarkable confluence of events.

Something is going to take place.

What that ‘something’ might be is yet unknown.

However, whatever it is, President Trump is unfortunately now attached to it.

[…]  Because of the threat of possible violence, organizers of an annual vigil for victims of gun violence — usually held on the King holiday each year — said Friday that they have canceled their event this year.

“Given the serious concerns about possible violence on Monday, we recognize that we can not guarantee the safety of the brave gun violence prevention activists and survivors who have fought so hard for this day,” said Lori Haas, state director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.  (link)

    • It is. I wonder what is being done to communicate to guns rights activists and supporters just how much machinery is getting rolled into Richmond to create this set up?

      At this point, anyone who is in the movement for good faith reasons – 2nd Amendment, American values, etc. – has to know that waltzing into this Deep State trap is a terrible idea. So, for the guns rights leaders who are not raising alarms, does that call into question their true motives?

You all are kidding yourselves if you think MAGA is going to last past PTrump, and even more so if you think the leftist/globalist agenda is going to be stopped without physical lethal push back. Let it happen now and in VA.

        There’s a lot of knuckleheads on our side that either can’t or refuse to see the bigger picture. You can spot them because it’s “all about guns.” These people are mostly good folks until cornered then it’s anybody’s guess. I’m quite similar to them in that fashion. It’s one thing to get into a brawl with your hands. It’s much scarier to get into one with a gun; particularly if you are the one carrying. It’s why I stopped. You cannot take any chances of locking up or going to the ground with an adversary. The risk of them removing your firearm and blasting you with it are far too great.

        I heard ANTIFA might be there. If that is true it certainly spells trouble. The left really holds little regard for human life and I can see their leaders provoking an attack. I was pleasantly surprised in Cleveland 2016 GOP Convention where open carry out was allowed. I thought that to be big mistake but the peace was kept; happy to be wrong. Maybe the presence of guns and law enforcement will keep the communists in check this time…..here’s to hoping.

        No. Philip Van Cleave is the real deal. He has worked tirelessly for 20 years for Second Amendment causes. I know him personally. I don’t know how else he could have responded when the Richmond branch of Antifa announced they would show up

        . Apparently there are three exits around the fence besides the main entry/exit point. People inside the fence will be unarmed since they will lobby in the General Assembly.. I have spoken to people who know that the Richmond police and state police are totally pissed that they have been brought into this. But do remember: When the Charlottesville “riot” spread to Richmond, the Richmond police behaved QUITE differently: They SEPARATED the groups and announced that they would make immediate arrests of troublemakers. That was the end of that. Lets hope that the Richmond police follow the same playbook.

        Now tell me, Treepers, how we Virginia’s are supposed to swallow this barrage of gun laws, this assault on our Second, Amendment freedoms? This is all being funded by mini-Mike Bloomberg — out of state money! Governor Blackface has been paid off by outsiders! Bloomberg even made a congratulatory trip to Richmond the day before the legislative session started! And no, we didn’t vote for it; the Democrats gerrymandered the districts so that Dems got elected in previously GOP districts.

        People are talking about moving out of state. There is a resolution pending in West Virginia to accept Second Amendment counties that secede into West Virginia. Best news I’ve heard yet.

        But seriously, all of you, what are we do to? Just roll over? This rally is a statement, as are the 91 counties (out of 95) — 118 total jurisdictions — that have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries.

          Posters here at the treehouse have been discussing giving up the beautiful state of California because it is too far gone, the liberals have ruined it forever so the smart move is to let it go.

          Do we let first California then Colorado then Idaho then Montana be taken over by liberals?

          Do the residents of Virginia just give up and let the beautiful state of Virginia be taken over by the gun grabbers?

          When do Patriots stop running and take a STAND?

          We can not run for ever, we can not put off the battles for ever.

          Annie, I’m a born and raised Virginian of 40 years. I’m from the end of the original suburbs in NOVA. My town was still very much farmland when we moved in. Now it’s an Xurb refereed to as Hernandez instead of Herndon. It’s been completely taken over by illegals. Lots of MS13 and everything that comes with them. It’s so sad to see my hometown a shadow of its former self.

          If this doesn’t wake up the independent voters and the idiot conservative voters that didn’t show up in November to take back the Congress next year then I will be moving to SC. I planned on moving there in the next 3-5 years anyway due to the loss of my hometown, but this will speed things up. If Trump can move the govt offices all over the US before the end of his second term then that should do wonders to get these invaders/leftists OUT of our state. They will follow the govt work wherever it goes.

          Until the next elections we just have to believe and Pray.

          Seems rather dangerous to speculate on, “In theory…” and “Assuming the false flag event will be against counter protesters outside the protest area.” The thinking one can assume anything, could cost someone’s life.

          Should anyone ever hold a thought that they could know what these subversive criminals are thinking? Aren’t most active planning attackers BAMN, “by any means necessary”? PLUS once the ball is rolling, it’ll take on a life of its own. The event’s happenings can not all be contained .

          The setup so far has so many red flags. Charlotte also sits before them as an example, so if something is planned, it’s likely they’ve built on what was learned there to better accomplish their goals.

            Many here seem to think that this is going to erupt into a shooting match forced by the gun grabbing government to make the 2nd Amendment supporters look bad and to cause some people to get hurt.

            This fence “pen” reminds me of what happened when I was at President Trumps Inauguration. The folks leaving the parade grounds were directed, after walking blocks away from Penn Ave., very cleverly, into a funnel – which led several thousands of us into a large fenced in “pen”. We quickly became packed in. They wouldn’t let us OUT to simply CROSS THE STREET! Every once in a while, they would open a make-shift “gate” in the fence to let a few hundred through, then quickly close it up again – all the while more people poured through the funnel at the rear of the area and became trapped in the pen. That was a message to us all. It was very obvious, indeed it was intended that we know we were all vulnerable. I have nothing against the police, but the DC cops were in charge of controlling that, and they were grinning, shrugging, and turning their back on the people who were asking what was going on and to be let out.

          Jederman,
          I am with you at least philosophically.

          We law abiding Patriots who believe in the rights bestowed by the Constitutions of Virginia and our federal counterpart have given enough ground to the oppressors who won’t amend, but simply decree abrogation.
          Enough.
          The barricades need to be removed. Bolt cutters and angle grinders will do that in a jiffy. Do not accept their cattle funneling. It is tactically foolish. The exigency created by Coonman should not dissuade lawful carry, if you are trained and permitted. The state needs to understand that our rights come first and we will be pushed no further.

          Virginia does not have enough National Guard or police to stop lawful citizens from their rights. It’s time to make an unambiguous statement. Many of us owe our rights to our forefathers who stood up to tyrants and faced them down. Make the commonwealth choose on Monday, rights or tyranny. Is Virginia going to start a war on Monday?

          One final point, a neighboring state where I have carry rights is considering similar legislation. If the left thinks they will accomplish by force what they can not accomplish by lawful amendment, the left needs to be educated about the price of that decision. It needs to move from abstraction to reality for oppressors associated with the enemy.

They absolutely have to cut into that , and a MLK-Day set-up rally is pretty awesome from that perspective. It doesn’t matter who goes, the media is going to find the DNC plants to interview and put on TV.

        Lobby day in VA is always this day. It has been on this day for quite a while as many people have off for MLK day.

        The fact that this year’s event has turned into this mess is completley related to a governor who purposefully pushed harder and harder against VA’s citizen’s 2nd Amendment rights to create this scenario…and the fact that seven bus loads of ANTIFA have decided to join the event in support of the 2nd Amendment. Something I doubt they will do peacefully.

        It is going to be a mess but if gun owners do not show up the governor wins If they show up its a shit show. The Air Force has already been flying monitoring planes (i.e. SIGNINT) over the venue. Everyone is coming, the FBI, DHS, BATFE, VA LE, ANTIFA, VCDL, and who knows who else.

      Yes it probably is. It will be a setup EVERY time our side wants to peacefully exercise our right to assemble.

      There is no question, the Left will use all the DS resources to to prevent us from exercising our rights to gather and to show the rest of the country our strength and commitment to a given issue, without triggering a limbic response.

      The question should be, given the Left’s penchant for narrative manipulation, how do we control our own messaging (the day our side gets a clue is the day we start to regain the high ground)? If we want to prevail and resist the Left, we have to be seen as successful. That is how a movement grows.

      As pointed out in the article, it would be helpful if PT was part of the plan. His tweets vis a vis this march could have been more proactive.

          John Nolte wrote an article on Breitbart about this a few days ago discussing the billions and billions of dollars that the media has spent trying to change the minds of the people and it has not had an effect.

          Not one little bit.

          All that money down the drain.

          So we need not fear the media or Hollywood or academia much at all.

            Sundance — I know the Virginia Capitol grounds well. The most danger will be outside the only entrance to the “box”. The streets are narrow. Thousands will line up to go through the gate / security checkpoint. Add thousands who will stay outside the box because the weapon ban doesn’t apply in the street and they can legally carry. Thousands of people packed in between buildings and the fencing, angry because of the Dems, and now throw in provocateurs.

            Sundance, I am going because like other Virginians who have posted here tonight, I too think its time to STAND. Go or stay away — there are no good options here. We know the Left has plans, that this is far bigger than Virginia, and that legislators will not back off their bills. Stay away and the Left & MSM will run their narratives regardless.

            Maybe, just maybe, Virginians will see their friends and neighbors standing up now, will they remain awake and vote in 2 years. That is all the hope I have. I am so sad we got ourselves into this situation and sad for what might come on Monday in Richmond. Virginians are a pathetic, weak mess. And the majority of Republican Party of Virginia’s leaders are UniParty Corrupticrats and worse then the Dems.

            I wonder what the men were thinking who assembled in Lexington and Concord. Were they completely confident this was the time to stand, even if it turned violent? Were they wondering if they should stay away to avoid conflict? They must have known that resisting would stir on the British and things would get far worse. I feel for them tonight as I pack to go to Richmond on Monday.

            If that map is accurate, I cannot see how it is legal. Whoever is responsible for placing it should be held liable regardless of outcome for major violations such as would be the case for bolting fire exits shut. It’s one thing to have monitored entrances–that’s not an issue. but having too few exits for emergency evacuation has to be borderline criminal neglect. In this instance, if the operators are notified and do not remedy prior, it would be criminal because they followed through after advance warning.

            Someone ought to interview the local fire marshal and get his response on video. Then broadcast it sufficiently so that the operators and public officials are adequately put on notice.

      The root cause for the dangers inherent in this demonstration is the unpunished success of the opposition’s violence in previous encounters, enabled by municipal officials who support leftist activities. The bullies will always win in such circumstances/locations where political and ideological conditions favor them.

      Increasing street violence is an inevitable consequence of the abyss separating equally committed and passionate members of opposing political groups. Recent history is but a prologue for the future.

      Avoiding the demonstration is especially good advice when the conditions for a serious beat down of 2A supporters are so clearly exposed and articulated.

            If you read the Charlottesville after action report local LE tried to do just that but the politicians purposefully did not allow it.

            Secondly, the local LE and Virginia State Police had disparate plans to deal with the crowds…and likely on purpose. This led to a situation where police directed opposing groups into the same area. We know the rest.

            In this case there are going to be thousands of armed people outside a small fenced in area with significant LE presence. Putting everyone into a cage so to speak will only heighten tensions inside and out with armed people and LE circling the area.

            The tradition has been for VA citizens to speak with their representatives on the grounds and to hold rallies on Lobby Day. Until this week it was completely legal to carry a firearm on the grounds and into the building but the governor has illegally altered that which along with his other actions has led to what we have now.

            Many 2nd Amendment supporters know this is a trap and it is setup purposefully as a lose-lose situation. To not go means the right is ceded to ANTIFA and the governor can claim no one really cared and lobbied so all the draconian bills the Democrats want to pass were unopposed.

            Show up and get into a confrontation and that means more gun control is needed but furthermore look at all those Trump supporters getting violent. Even if it isn’t Trump supporters and 2nd Amendment supporters that is how it will be portrayed.

            Many have decided if they are going to lose no matter what they are going to show up and fight rather than cower in fear of a media narrative and work to create a positive one.

        For Antifa to act out,they will need space. Space around them, things to break. If they are surrounded, in a crowd, by strong, peaceful men, they will not have the theater they need.

    • That is better than going into the death cage, but wherever in downtown Richmond good Americans go on that day to support the Second Amendment . . . the set up will be relocated to wherever they go. Profa and their Nazi frenemies will try to blend in with good Americans and start trouble. And the VA/Deep State snipers can murder citizens caught up in the false flag operation just as easily 50 yards outside the cage as inside the cage.

      Stay completely out of the corrupt sh—holes that are Richmond and/or NOVA/DC.

    We can all see this coming. However…

    This isn’t the same thing as Charlottesville. You had a bunch of “right wing cooks” that the media could latch onto and attack and use to highlight Trump supporters as violent crazies. This is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar from that.

    https://www.bitchute.com/video/38r2FZIlnAqe/

    Everyone needs to watch this. My own county has become a 2nd Amendment sanctuary (in TN). You have cops flat out saying they won’t enforce these laws. Some are evening saying they’ll leave the STATE with their families if this keeps going.

    What Sundance keeps highlighting is how all these political actors are trying to manipulate the electorate’s behavior. Something nobody isn’t really pointing out is that IT’S GRADUALLY BEGINNING TO NOT WORK ANYMORE. This is a zero sum game, as SD has said. This is making these guys desperate. And they’re making very bad choices at are going to end up blowing up in their faces in ways they aren’t expecting.

    Nobody trusts the government anymore, and nobody is giving up their guns. Wait until it escalates…when these 2nd Amendment sanctuaries declare all gun restrictions null and void. Wanna make your guns fully auto? Go for it. Wanna make your own silencer? We don’t care. Wanna saw off your shotgun barrel? Sure.

    Yeah, definitely watch this. But not because it’s going to be more astro turf. It could be ground zero for massive blowback against the government….and even turns the cold anger blazing white hot.

        Welcome to a time and place of domestic enemies.
        Just because many commenters here didn’t go do militia training, protest, or operate in militias of free will on their own time — doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen.
        The primary players here are Oathkeepers and vets and under the radar militia leaders. “most people” do NOT have any real knowledge about the dynamics of illegal and UNLAWFUL government actors abetting antifa — opposed by (all-free-will) militia. How many commenters have first or second hand DIRECT information from on the ground militia ops: Bunkerville NV, Malheur, Ferguson MO, LA riots, Border militia ops?
        Lots of good men have been honing skills that will be needed for these times and these “eventualities”.
        Big Picture:
        In the given situation, I trust the judgement of the militia and the LAWFUL badge wearing LEO in this situation. ANTIFA shows up and will not need busses to get “home”: it will be ambulance and hearse and paddy wagons and LEO will work with the militia to make it happen. (Rabble rousers and criminals, antifa and Northam ought to pay attention here, are at massive risk when serious good men are armed in public.) When that’s [dealing with antifa] done, probability is arrests (for Northam and any aiding and abetting denial of rights) under 18 USC 241 and 18 USC 242.
        The tables are turned. Its no longer media and legitimacy and who “looks good” stuff.
        When you get “aggressed”, you are forced to fight or surrender–and we are there.
        Ok so “no one has to go to Richmond on Monday” — but if no one does “go” then how long before they ACTUALLY aggress?

    Being born in Tidewater VA and raised in NoVA and having attended college in VA with family and friends still residing in VA I have taken quite the interest in this event (not to mention that our history begins and ends in VA). I have been getting some information from family and friends.

    Virginia Citizens Defense League (VACDL) and GOA (Gunowners of America) are in involved in this event.

    As you may be aware the area inside the fence does not allow weapons. As such the plan per VACDL is a minimum of 10K unarmed inside. The inside area is where the speakers will be. VACDL and GOA are wanting a ration of 1:5 (for ever one person inside, 5 outside).

    The Antifa group in this area is called Antifa Seven Hills. Their leader and the VACDL leader have supposedly spoke and have come to agreements. As an FYI Antifa in this area is against the 2A restrictions/laws that are being passed. You can look up the public Facebook groups for both and get a feel for the conversations that have been happening over the past week. See also
    https://www.nationalreview.com/news/antifa-group-to-march-with-pro-gun-protesters-at-virginia-rally/

    Now does this mean something may happen? Of course. We all know Soros and Bloomberg are working behind the scenes (as an fyi I saw posts that showed ads placed for crisis actors for the vent). Its also worth noting that thousands are expected from out of state and militia’s from various adjoining states and people from as far away as Texas and CA are attending. It would not surprise me at all to see 50K-100K turnout.

    I have numerous friends and relatives that work for the government and government defense contractors…..the word was put out that anyone that has a TS or higher has been advised not to attend the event. I find that interesting, but not surprising.

    And one rumor that I have heard from multiple sources is that the Governor of Virginia……………well he wont be in VA! WTF?! He is “supposedly” going to be in NC with the governor for that state. If true that is rather odd.

    Pray that Monday is peaceful with solid turn out.

    If you want to monitor the event you can do so as per below:
    > Monitor the Monday Lobby Day activities by following @VACapitol2020 (Twitter and Facebook)
    > The speakers and events will be live all day long on AM1140 WRVA you can listen to this for free using the iHeart app on any smartphone.

    Pretty much the only way to bust their narrative is for 100K pro 2nd people to show up and sit on the ground, silently and peacefully holding signs. They’ll get beat up by the Lefties/Dems, especially on the periphery.

    Kind of like how the MLK peaceful marchers got attacked by firehoses/dogs/KKK, etc. in the 60’s. It busted the narrative that the Civil Rights Marchers were the violent ones.

    Other than that, just don’t go. Of course, that won’t necessarily change anything, cuz they’re probably gonna whip out that theatrical group of young male Tiki Torch Carriers who went to Charlotte- only this time they’ll be carrying torches and pro-2nd signs. And the whole DemMSM and a lot of the FNC peeps will pretend that THEY represent the good people of VA. who care about the 2nd. (NOTE: This “don’t show up” method was tried by Patriot Prayer out on the West Coast last year and did not help at all. Media still smears them as Racists, even tho most of their leadership isn’t even white).

    What a Set-Up.

    Maybe organize the pro-2nd March in a city that respects the law. ie. NOT in VA. or any other Dem state.

    Or just get out and have MASSIVE Voter Registration, man the polls and vote every single one of these Dem f*ckers out.

          I have not “encouraged violence” at all. I’m assuming (with good reason) that the left will instigate violence & the 2A folks should be ready & fight back. There’s nothing wrong with that. The left gets away with everything they do because nobody fights back. That needs to change. The very idea that the Governor installed this temp fencing is a travesty & an affront to all Americans. The constitutional right to address grievances & to assemble isn’t open to interpretation, nor is it dependent upon any “permit.” Our founding documents cover the entire country, not only the part that some seditious government official (s) deems appropriate. It may be that my posts were a little too strident for some. This is a hot button issue for me & for the President as well. He campaigned on protecting the 2A all along.

          Yes, I see the familiar trap set. Sundance is 100% correct on that. But traps can be turned around on the perps, & good can come out of that. Nobody has to enter that cage, I sure wouldn’t.

If a group is available to try to video everything, get people at strategic points with views of the entire area, and record it, with accurately synchronized time-notations.
