Leading Republican Candidate for Governor of Virginia Met with Insurrectionists

BREAKING NEWS: Leading Republican Candidate for Governor of Virginia Met with Insurrectionists and Discussed Armed Rebellion the Day Before the January 6 Insurrection

Recorded discussion included consideration of Donald Trump raising a personal army of more than a million combat veterans to help him retain control of the White House.

In the Republican gubernatorial primary in Virginia, State Senator Amanda Chase has a healthy lead of 7% over her nearest competitor. The bad news for Chase is that just 48 hours ago she lost a lawsuit seeking to compel the Republican Party of Virginia to hold a conventional primary rather than—as the party is now considering, and has until Tuesday to decide upon—a state “convention” at which the party’s 2021 gubernatorial candidate would be selected by a committee of just 72 party members.

Chase, who has been called “controversial” by local media, even “the Donald Trump of Virginia politics” by one source, fears that her state party’s leaders, as opposed to Virginia’s Trumpist voter base, won’t select her to be their standard bearer for the November 2, 2021 gubernatorial election.

It appears that there’s very good reason for Virginia’s Republican leaders not to do so.

A no-longer-publicly-available social media thread allegedly depicting a January 5, 2021 Facebook Live event involving Chase and several infamous insurrectionists is now getting renewed attention. In the initially little-seen and little-noticed video (first posted on a Facebook page that Facebook suspended for 60 days on January 8), Chase speaks with Stewart Rhodes, founder of the Oath Keepers, and Joshua Macias, head of Vets for Trump. CNN has reported that the FBI is now investigating many of Rhodes’ associates in the Oath Keepers, and has arrested some of them in a plot since detailed by the Wall Street Journal as involving gassing all of Congress to death in the tunnels beneath the United States Capitol.

As for Macias, he was arrested on gun charges during vote-counting in Philadelphia and was later charged with felony election interference in November of 2020.

2. We can't be letting these types worm their way into government. They hate government.


They want to run a militaristic power structure.

3. Somebody was yelling for the insurrectionists to "release the gas!" So that's what it was about...

CNN has reported that the FBI is now investigating many of Rhodes’ associates in the Oath Keepers, and has arrested some of them in a plot since detailed by the Wall Street Journal as involving gassing all of Congress to death in the tunnels beneath the United States Capitol.

5. A traitor to this republic guilty of conspiracy to overthrow the United States.

Perhaps the next 'box' she finds herself in will be a federal prison cell, and not a plexiglass box because she refuses to wear a mask.
