On Sep. 17, the ninth anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, protestors are planning to begin a “siege” of the White House that will last fifty days—right up until Nov. 3. The website for the event is planning to bring thousands of protestors into Lafayette Square to “lay siege to the White House.” The site also warns that “the possibility of a civil war breaking out sometime next year is no joke.”
The organizers are citing two main reasons for the planned occupation: an alleged lack of progress on Wall Street since the 2009 occupation and that “Trump is trying to steal the election . . . and things could turn very ugly very quickly as November 3rd approaches.” One image used depicts the White House on fire and others show large riots directly in front of the building.
The FBI recommended contacting the Secret Service for comment. The Secret Service and the Department of Justice have not responded to this reporter’s requests for comment in time for publication.
The specific demands are not clear but the site raises concerns about President Trump refusing to leave office if he loses and that “white supremacists are waiting in the wings, spoiling for a violent showdown.”
These online ramblings are calling for “#METOOers, #BLM activists, Extinction Rebels, Sunrisers, and CodePinks,” to organize and join in Lafayette Park and to create “pop-up sieges at federal buildings in dozens of cities.”
The site used for the advertisements, Adbusters, is a Vancouver crowd-funded online magazine that gives protestors and occupiers a place to advertise plans.
One of the postings, deemed “tactical briefings,” asked readers to submit demands.
It has yet to be seen how many individuals will turn up to the occupation on Sep. 17.

Ranking GOP Member Exposes Pelosi’s Obstruction to Jan 6 Security Records
As the one year anniversary of the January 6th riots on the U.S. Capitol approach, more information comes to light, particularly with regard to Democrats’ desperate attempts to prove something sinister was planned.
However, Ranking Member for the House Administration Committee Rodney Davis (R-IL) has unveiled new evidence that Pelosi is obstructing access to records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol on that infamous day.
Davis wrote a letter to speaker Pelosi on January 3, 2022 laying out the timeline as proof for his accusations against Pelosi’s obstruction:
“In the immediate aftermath of January 6th, Republicans began an examination of the Capitol’s security vulnerabilities. On January 13, 2021, as the Ranking Republican Member of the House Administration Committee, I sent letters to the Acting House Sergeant-at-Arms, the House Chief Administrative Officer, and the Acting Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) asking them to preserve all records relating to January 6th” the letter states.
“Although the USCP immediately complied with my request to preserve and produce relevant documents, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer—the two House officers who report directly to you—responded jointly that they were ‘unable to comply with the request at this time.’ Now, nearly a year after this request, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer have yet to comply with my request.”
“Mr. Irving’s attorneys informed the Senate that ‘the relevant records are the property of the U.S. House of Representatives, and we have therefore referred the Senators’ request for records to the House Office of General Counsel for transmission to the appropriate House officials.’”
“I subsequently wrote to Douglas Letter, the House General Counsel appointed by and responsible to you, to request that he produce Mr. Irving’s communications. However, like the other two House officers who report directly to you, Mr. Letter has not complied—or even responded—to my request for Mr. Irving’s records.”
“Republicans again sought relevant records from House Sergeant-at-Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer in March 2021 and, once again, the House officers who report to you ignored our requests. At that time, as various federal entities began to produce January 6 material to several House committees, Republicans made requests—including to the House Sergeant-at- Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer—that all such material be shared equally with Democrats and Republicans. Both the Sergeant-at-Arms and the Chief Administrative Officer failed to produce any documents to Republicans pursuant to our requests, suggesting that these House officers may be providing documents only to Democrats on a partisan basis.”
“As Speaker of the House, you are the most senior elected official in the House of Representatives and therefore ultimately responsible for all House operations, not just those of your party. You appoint all House officers, who serve at your pleasure. You yield enormous institutional power over how Congress operates, including the security posture of the Capitol complex.”
“There is irony in the fact that at the same time House Democrats are holding witnesses in criminal contempt of Congress for raising genuine questions of legal privilege, you continue to obstruct Republican access to House records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021. This double standard only adds to the evidence that Democrats are weaponizing events of January 6th against their political adversaries.”
