Another video shows a group of nine protesters walking arm-in-arm down the blocked-off freeway.
Another journalist tweeted video of the closed-down traffic lanes.
The FreedomFightersDC group tweeted an invitation for protest claiming, “Education is Liberation.”
Some were not happy with the actions taken to block Monday morning rush-hour traffic.
The handful of protesters eventually moved off the freeway to 16th NW near the White House.Protesting in the street that has been blocked off for safety has been the way things have happened before. But going on an interstate and forcing people to be trapped in their cars is a violation of their rights. What is wrong with your brain?

Gilman is head of the George Soros-funded Berggruen Institute and a co-founder of the “Transition Integrity Project,” which war-gamed the ouster of Trump from office regardless of whether he wins re-election. Anton’s crime, in Gilman’s mind, was publishing an article about Gilman’s project in the American Mind, titled “The Coming Coup.”Michael Anton is the Robert Brasillach of our times and deserves the same fate A former Trump official dreamed up a George Soros-funded ‘coup’ and QAnon believes it

3. If Trump Loses, His Supporters Remain ‘An Existential Threat’
4. Prosecute Everyone Who Supported TrumpWhen this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.

6. Openly Attacking Members of CongressAfter today there is no longer any room for nuance. The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters – ALL OF THEM – are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And this evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.

The second report, "Hold the Line: A Guide to Defending Democracy," is a how-to manual for organizing massive protests, produced by a group of hard-left "researchers, organizers, and activists." The report encourages people to early assemble into clusters, to identify the "power holders" they want to "influence," and then make plans on how to achieve their goals.
- On election night, the winner will not be known "due to millions of uncounted mail-in ballots in 6 battleground states."
- Given there's no clear victor, "intense court fights" can be expected that could result "in a struggle right up to the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress. Uncertainty could extend even beyond this as decisions for both the presidency and vice presidency are battled out in Congress and before the U.S. Supreme Court."
Then, on Nov. 8-11, the group’s plan is to meet members of Congress returning to Washington DC for the lame-duck session. “If Trump is trying to launch a coup, that’s no time for business as usual. We’ll meet them at the train station or the airports or if they drive into town we can meet them at their homes,” the website says.In the days following the election we’ll continue to come out into the streets every day to respond to rapidly changing events. We may be waiting for votes to be counted or we may be responding to major attacks on democracy. Over the next few weeks we’ll use our Spokes Council process to plan actions that are flexible and can scale to respond to a lot of different scenarios.
We’ll keep it going until Trump concedes. 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.
As it becomes clear that Trump’s coup is failing, institutions and the elites will start to abandon him – or we will approach them as part of the problem. Either Amazon will shut down AWS for the Trump loyalists in the government or we’ll shut down their fulfillment centers. Either governors will tell their national guards to stand down or we’ll shut down their state capitals as well. Over time, Trump will grow increasingly isolated and his empire will crumble down around him.
On its Facebook page, the group recently posted a picture of a mob arriving at Sen. Lindsey Graham’s house at 6 a.m. to harass him for following the Constitution. In the picture, one protest sign reads, “We can’t sleep so neither should Lindsey.”Then — and this is the important part — Biden will move into the White House and be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.
“Fortunately it appears the officers were wearing body cameras,” Sgt. Gripp said. “The cameras were activated. So we should have a lot of video along with eyewitness statements.”

NOTE - the tweet of the actual incident has now been deleted from TwitterHis name was Walter Wallace Jr. He was given repeated warnings to drop the knife. Rather than listen to those warnings, he charged at officers while brandishing the knife. This was 100 percent a justified shooting, as any rational person can see. https://t.co/BUsYX37ngw
