CALL TO ACTION: Defend Free Speech at Flynn Hearing Dec 18

UPDATE 12/18/2018: Judge delays Flynn sentencing. “Sullivan also asked Flynn and his counsel whether they would want to delay the sentencing, seemingly hinting that Flynn would face a tough sentence if the decision had gone through Tuesday.” https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/421901-flynn-asks-judge-to-delay-sentencing

Oath Keepers and Patriots,

If you are within driving range of Washington DC we need you to come and stand up for free speech this next Tuesday, December 18, at General Michael Flynn’s sentencing hearing.

Federal Court District of Columbia
333 Constitution Ave
Washington DC
Sentencing scheduled for 10:00am EST
Recommended Arrival 9:00am EST

We understand this is short notice but if you can make it, please do.

It is important for Oath Keepers, along with other patriots, to stand up for Lieutenant General Michael Flynn’s freedom of speech as well as the freedom of speech of his supporters.

Antifa is expected to be there and may attempt to silence by force and intimidation, which is their standard M.O.

Oath Keepers will be there to help protect people from unlawful violence as consistently perpetrated by Antifa.

We have great confidence in Washington D.C. Metro PD, which is very experienced with handling civil disturbances, but it would be best to have capable patriots on hand to protect people from being singled out for assault, especially as they travel to and from the hearing.

Chris Cox of Bikers for Trump has confirmed that members of his group will be there.

This is General Flynn’s sentencing hearing, so expect to be there as long as the hearing may take, and there is also the possibility he may make a statement to media afterward. Build in enough time.

Anyone attending should make themselves aware of local, state and federal regulations in regards to lawful concealed carry, pocket knives or anything else that could be construed as a weapon (in the past this has included flag poles, signs, OC spray and almost anything else ruled a weapon by local and federal law enforcement).

Washington DC is a very prohibitive environment. Unless you are a current serving or retired police officer with appropriate credentials, don’t even think about bringing a firearm into DC (we don’t like it, but that is reality in D.C.)

Oath Keepers et all will accept NO responsibility for unlawful actions or incidents conducted by members or non-members in attendance. You need to stay within the law.

Also, we are going to stand up for free speech and to Protect people against unlawful violence (terroristic violence and threat of violence). That means lawful self defense and defense of others only. If you attend, you need to remain calm, cool, collected and professional.

Unless you or someone under your care is attacked, let Washington D.C. Metro PD handle Antifa.

 

Note from Stewart Rhodes:

As always, our primary motivation here is defense of free speech. Period. However, I will say that it is a very common tactic, when no substantive crime can be found, to accuse and prosecute for “lying to Federal Agents” during an investigation, even over innocent mistakes, omissions, or slight inconsistencies in statements. I’ve seen it many times, including in cases that never made the media and some that were never formally prosecuted. It is a method of state (and deep state) intimidation, to coerce cooperation.

And if “they” want to punish you, it is used as a way to get at you when they have nothing else.

Just ask Martha Stewart how that works.

PS- Our presence there doesn’t mean we agree with General Flynn on everything. For example, he called Edward Snowden a traitor while we called Snowden a hero and Oath keeping patriot (and we stand by that).

But this isn’t about General Flynn’s past support for government surveillance programs we oppose. This is about free speech.

And, closely related, this is also about the globalist deep state attempt to contain or even stop President Trump, who is a wild-card maverick nationalist, by their typical “skunkworks” (including gag orders and intimidation by means of prosecution, as I stated above).

And please note we also don’t agree with Trump on everything, such as some of his statements on guns.

But we stand for free speech, we stand against the globalists, and we stand against the deep state.

 

If you believe in the Oath Keepers missions to protect and defend the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Oath, to support free speech, and to help our fellow citizens when disasters strike

    1. Yes, that’s about the size of it. I attended one of these in Berkeley last year. They bats, boards, pipes, rocks, bottles, M80’s. we Had our fists. They are a very angry but cowardly Group. They wear masks,
      Police out here don’t care, they did little
      To stop it. Several Antifa got their asses kicked. Excpect the media to make you the bad guys when Antifa is the oppressive aggressor. America is being lied to about the true events and what is happening in DC and around America.

  1. I love this president and his staff including General Flynn. I see the corruption and the disgusting actions going on in the swamp DC no. I live in Florida. I’m a Vietnam War era veteran and a true patriot. If push comes to shove and this turns into a Battlefield I will be there in a heartbeat 2 give my support. God bless Oath Keepers, president and his family

  2. Well, the DEMONocrats managed to destroy this man. I can’t believe their height of stupidity and hate. I can’t be there in person but I do speak out whenever I can. General Flynn is not perfect but who is?? If he told a lie, that’s no reason to crucify him. He has served our country over and beyond ANYTHING the DEMONocrats have done. I think they should get down on their knees and thank God that we have men like General Flynn and be thankful for all men and women who VOLUNTEER their time or even their life to serve America. What shape would our country be in if nobody went into service? Don’t just give GI’s lip service like, “Thank you for your service” when you don’t mean it. AND, that goes for the police. Right now I heard that the number of people who are joining to be in the police department are at very low levels. Why? Because they are not getting the backing and support from too many “Americans.” This is more serious than people realize. Our military and our police CAN’T be taken for granted. They don’t HAVE to be there when we need them!

  3. When I first saw this email sent to me at 9:12 PM on 12/14/18, I viewed it on my Iphone SE.
    it dissapeared from my gmail inbox, then I went to all mail and found it again, it dissapeared again, then I
    held it on the phone to move it to another folder and took a picture of it.

    I went to my laptop with the secure network and printed it out. Notice I dont care about spelling, im just getting the work to you.

    Long story short, we have a lot of work to do ahead of us.

  4. We would love to be a part of this “call to action”. But our distance & finances prevent that from happening. We will be present with our prayers for your safety, as well as for the hearing to go the right way & throwing this whole thing against Flynn out the window.

  5. My comments are not posting for some reason.

    Do we have a staging point? I am local and can recon the area if needed and selecyt one. Parking is scarce and expensive. Metro Rail offers a stop just a few blocks away.

  6. This is Joshua Macias organizer of the #ClearFlynnNow freedom rally, fellow Veteran and Combat Motorcycle Rider. I appreciate the Oathkeepers support and welcome my brothers with open arms!

    When arriving please check in with us as we might have ground intelligence on problem areas. Also details post event will be shared through our site http://www.clearflynnnow.com

    The family and supporters thank you and your intitiative!

  7. Sorry that I can’t attend this event. I don’t live close enough. I will be praying for all of you. Stay safe. God bless you all.

  8. Thanks Oathkeepers for setting up the event at the Federal District Court 333 Constitution Ave on 12/18/18,. I was instructed by leadership to go in to the courtroom with the other citizens. Flynn eventually agreed to postpone sentancing until March after being asked by judge S over 7 times, “are you sure you want to be sentanced today?”…..

    I drove there, took 3 hrs and met some great patriots there including activists, true journalists, and other travelers. It was good to see Oathkeepers there. Though I have to work a few hours on Saturday, to catch up this week, I would do it again. There was word that one or two antifa were there

    Bought my Trump hat while I was there at Trump Tower in DC ! A beer is about $20 at the bar.

    Good Luck !

  9. The activist judge used speculative charges to coerce General Flynn into delaying his sentencing and to “cooperate” further with Mueller’s investigation. In other words, if he doesn’t switch sides, and assist with the overthrow, he is toast.
