'Stop the Steal' rally in Washington D.C., Nov. 14 2020.Jim Hale / LifeSiteNews

WASHINGTON, D.C., November 16, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Mainstream media ignored or obscured the most important aspects of Saturday’s gigantic “Stop the Steal” rally in the nation’s capital.  Here’s a brief rundown:

1.  The rally was massive. 

While most media sources downplayed the turnout, tens of thousands of patriots from all over the country and around the world came to Washington, D.C. to show their support for free and fair elections. I heard the same sentiment expressed by many who made last minute decisions to drive through the night or fly in the day before: “I had to be here. Too much hangs in the balance for me not to let my voice be heard in the public square.”    

To get an idea of the magnitude and enthusiasm of the crowd, watch countless thousands sing the Star Spangled Banner in unison:

2.  Social media and high tech firms did their best to squelch the rally. 

As mainstream news organizations falsely portrayed the “Stop the Steal” rally as “white nationalist groups” promoting “baseless claims about a stolen election,” social media and high tech titans did their best to squelch the event, choking off the free flow of information and disenfranchising their conservative users.

DCist reported in advance of the Rally:

PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -

The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.

We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.

However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.

As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.

Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.

In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!

PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20)

On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"

He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.

Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.

Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!

President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."

Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.

____________________________________________________________________

PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.

While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.

Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.

'Trump: ‘Our election system is now under assault and siege’ and as president I must defend it'

'Tens of thousands 2020 election votes illegally scanned in Detroit, says Dominion IT contractor'

'Trump campaign files lawsuit demanding ‘a new statewide election for president’ in Georgia'

'Experts flag over 500k ballots in PA with new evidence of major 2020 election voter fraud'

''Smoking gun'? Pennsylvania vote fraud hearing gets gasps from audience'

'FBI and Justice Department have dragged their feet investigating 2020 vote fraud'

''CNN top brass in leaked tape: We won't give Trump 'too much of a platform on his not conceding'

'Twitter censored Trump 63 times over Thanksgiving holiday, Biden untouched'

LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.

But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.

We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.

Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.

Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.

_____________________________________________________________________

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.

Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.

The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.

But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!

Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!

Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.

Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!

Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!

While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.

This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.

We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

  • Several tech firms have taken steps to stifle protests in D.C. and around the country in support of the baseless claim that the 2020 election was fraudulent.
  • Facebook has been deactivating pages linked to “Stop the Steal,” prompting cries of censorship from groups trying to organize the D.C. event.
  • An Eventbrite listing for D.C.’s rally was also cancelled, according to activists.
  • A spokesperson for Eventbrite confirmed in an email to DCist/WAMU that the company had removed the march from its platform, adding, “We prohibit any events, content, or creators that share or promote potentially harmful misinformation and/or contribute to the risk of violence or physical harm. We notified the creator that we removed the event from our platform and are refunding ticket holders.”
  • And Airbnb says it canceled the reservation of a person who had planned to attend Saturday’s rally, claiming “anyone affiliated with hate groups has no place” on its platform. In a tweet Wednesday, Airbnb said it also banned the user.

3.  The crowd was overwhelmingly pro-life. 

In addition to demanding free and fair elections, many came to support President Trump because he has proven to be the country’s most pro-life president in history.

“There is more power and more authority to abolish abortion at the state level and in local communities than we even imagine,” explained Jonathan Darnell of Virginia.  “We don’t need new laws to end abortion.  We need governors and local officials who will enforce justice in their jurisdictions right now.”     

4.  The crowd was young and diverse.  

The protesters represented a beautiful cross-section of America.  Check out my LifeSiteNews colleague Jim Hale’s video report which displays the racial and age diversity of the patriots who descended upon Washington, D.C. to call for free and fair elections.

5.  A Biden presidency would create an existential threat for foreign nations.  

While the focus of Saturday’s event was to call attention to voter fraud, some came because they fear that if President Trump leaves office, their home countries would be exposed to increased risk.  This was especially apparent from the presence of many from Asian nations.

“We’ve come here because of China,” explained a spokesperson for a group of about a dozen people who had traveled from Japan.  “Communist China is very dangerous” and “threatens all of Asia.” 

“Trump is a champion,” she declared as her companions each held up four fingers, chanting hopefully, “four more years.”

“I love how President Trump deals with China,” said one woman, originally from Hong Kong, a tiny city-state but enormous economic powerhouse which hugs the coastline of the historically oppressive communist nation.

“The Chinese Communist Party is definitely a threat to Hong Kong,” she said, “and not only to Hong Kong, but to the entire world.”
