As a byproduct of my federal lawsuit against the City of Charlottesville for denying my August 12, 2018 UTR 2 permit application I recently had the opportunity to depose Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones under oath.
In the Charlottesville form of government the City Manager is essentially a consigliere for the Mayor and City Council who makes important decisions on their behalf. I met with this guy 5 days before the original Unite the Right and voiced concerns about the potential for violence that echoed those made by DHS, the Virginia Fusion Center, and police departments across the nation: keep the sides separate!
Here are the highlights showing not only how my warning was ignored but how the Charlottesville government withdrew police protection of the event without warning at the 11th hour leading to riots, injury and death.
By the way, this narrative about the violence being caused by 10 speakers not coming in from the back of the park is a complete fiction as well. What they’re referring to is an agreement between Richard Spencer’s head of security Jack Pierce and Sgt. Newberry of the Charlottesville Police Department for speakers to come in from the Market St side along with general attendees.
You can hear this agreement reached between Pierce and Newberry here.
It’s worth noting that none of this had been run by myself or any other speakers besides Spencer. I was never told anything about coming in from the back of the park. The plan, as I knew it, was always to come in from the Market St side.
Finally, here is an admission from Maurice that members of City Council sought to deny the permit based on the content of the speech, violating the 1st Amendment and leaving them personally liable to future lawsuits.

Last week I teased some big news and here it is! I’m finally ready to deliver on a promise I made to you all back in November. On Tuesday, my attorney Elmer Woodard filed a federal lawsuit against the City of Charlottesville for denying my permit for the Unite the Right Anniversary Rally. We’re asking that the court recognize our first amendment rights and grant our permit for August 12th, 2018 rally in Lee Park.
(NOTE: This lawsuit is not related to the counterclaims we plan to file in the Sines v. Kessler or Charlottesville v. Lightfoot Militia cases. Those will be released at the tactically proper time.)
BREAKING NEWS! Yesterday I filed a federal lawsuit against the #Charlottesville government for denying my August 12th, 2018 Unite the Right Anniversary Rally permit. Read all about it here:https://t.co/lBkAKtjUoD

As you may remember, the Charlottesville government attempted to deny the permit back on December 11th. It was the first permit application ever rejected in Charlottesville history (although they also rejected several other applications for August 12th filed in response to mine). Among the reasons cited for the rejection was the city’s inability to “keep opposing sides separate and…leave a clear path into the event without fear of violence.” A highly dubious claim considering that other localities around the country have been doing this for years.
The denial letter also claimed that, “the application likely underestimates the number of participants.” Just like last year I listed attendance on the application as 400, which was a fairly decent estimate. During my research for this lawsuit I was able to pull up several permit applications for multiculturalism festivals held in Lee Park including the ‘Festival of Cultures’ (estimated attendance 3,000) and ‘Cville Pride’ (estimated attendance 4,000!). Of course, the key difference is that white rights aren’t allowed a platform but white replacement is. This is where the Charlottesville government’s fixation on removing the Robert E Lee monument gets to the heart of the matter.
They also cited a time frame in which the park was partially closed (they’ve never used that as a reason to deny before and have always politely corrected and approved other applicants) as well as an unconstitutional request for insurance.
I’ve struggled through enormous personal adversity and financial cost to ensure that we have an opportunity to do this thing over again and do it right. Late last year an Independent Review commissioned by the City Council itself found that Charlottesville failed to protect either public safety or free speech rights at the original Unite the Right. In fact, the denial of our rights was a stated objective and former Police Chief Al Thomas told his subordinates, “Let them fight. It will make it easier to declare an unlawful assembly.”
Instead of less than a week to litigate this permit issue (like last time) we’re going to start this process 5 months in advance. Hopefully the result will be much less uncertainty in the time leading up to the rally and a clear set of instructions about what is expected from police and attendees.
All Americans who believe in the Constitution should support the rights of Unite the Right activists. We cannot allow a precedent to be set where a government can trample on our rights, blame us for it and we take it lying down. I’m sure that part of the calculus in sabotaging the original rally came down to a concerted decision on the part of City Council that paying astronomical legal fees would be worth stopping us from being able to speak. Well, that has failed and one way or the other we’re coming back.
We must not conduct this rally with the same naivete we had before. Anyone attending should be aware of not only how vital it is for upholding our rights but also the dire consequences of bad behavior. Regardless… a wiser, more veteran group of the most dedicated activists in America will be in Lee Park August 12th. We will not allow ourselves to be subjugated by our would-be oppressors. They’ve thrown everything they had at us in the aftermath of UTR and they have failed.

This is the first episode of a weekly 24 episode podcast about the Unite the Right rally. It will run at least until August 12th, 2018, the date of the Anniversary Rally. In this episode I give an overview of things that we’ll be talking about over the span of the show including investigations into the government sabotage of the first Unite the Right and some of the things you’ll need to know if you’re planning to attend the new rally.

Antifa activists claiming “emotional distress” and other ailments from the August 12th Unite the Right rally have hired an infamous Democrat law firm to “demand” information from Twitter on popular Alt-Right accounts and hashtags.
This could just be the first step in an invasive discovery phase played out across several social media companies hosting Alt-Right accounts.
I received the email from Twitter Friday afternoon informing me that Boies, Schiller and Flexner had sent them a list of “demands” and that Twitter “may be obligated to produce basic subscriber information related to your account in the future”.
Attached to the email was a legal document (see below) demanding information on my own account as well those of Identity Europa, Mike Enoch, Eric Striker, Michael Hill, Matt Heimbach, The Proud Boys and several others. These were all either groups and people who attended the rally or voiced support for it in some capacity.
Additionally they want a catalogue of tweets using popular hashtags like #ItsOkayToBeWhite, #DailyStormer, #FreeCantwell and #UniteTheRight. It’s not immediately clear why these attorneys couldn’t just use the search function like everyone else. They seem to have a nigh infinite amount of money and resources to waste on inefficiencies and overstaffing.
Who is the law firm representing Antifa?
The law firm of Boies, Schiller and Flexner has made a reputation taking on high-profile Democrat clients like accused rapist Harvey Weinstein. They’ve also represented a number of powerful Leftwing people, organizations and causes such as the NFL, Al Gore and gay marriage. On the latter issue, they argued before the Supreme Court to have California’s Proposition 8 gay marriage ban struck down.
They were also hired by the City of Charlottesville in a failed effort to rescind my permit for Unite the Right (see: Jason Kessler v. City of Charlottesville).
Now they’ve gone back to the same well by representing a collection of Antifas and anti-white racial activists in a $3 million lawsuit against Unite the Right organizers, speakers and attendees (Sines et al. v Jason Kessler et al.).
The lead plaintiff is a UVA student named Elizabeth Sines who claims to have been emotionally disturbed after witnessing the Unite the Right rally. Glamour Magazine quoted her as saying she, “hopped into her car and drove the 10 minutes from her off-campus apartment to the center of the action.”
Sines wears her cringingly self-righteous liberal platitudes like a badge of honor. Her Twitter account proclaims, “This is what a feminist looks like” while her Facebook cover features a meme from the Anne Frank Center stating, “We replaced you,” a dig at the popular “You will not replace us” chant used by opponents of mass third world immigration. Curiously, not too many brown people in that photograph.
Here is the video she took from the night of the torch march:
Who is bankrolling this?
An organization called Integrity First for America claims to be funding the lawsuit. On their website they describe themselves as, “a nonpartisan nonprofit organization dedicated to holding America’s leaders accountable when their actions threaten longstanding principles of our democracy.”
However, despite claims to being “nonpartisan” the group, which formed late last year, has spent its time attacking Donald Trump’s business ventures and was spearheaded by Roberta Kaplan who Politico calls a “liberal icon”. Kaplan is a Jewish lesbian attorney who argued before the Supreme Court in the ruling that struck down the gay marriage ban.
Integrity First’s Twitter account is filled with attacks on President Trump and continuously uses the term “Nazi” as an ethnic slur for white people. They often deploy their ubiquitous catchphrase #SueANazi, as a play on the Punch a Nazi meme which cropped up after a prominent White Nationalist was assaulted in Washington D.C.

Interestingly, a source embedded in the Virginia political system told me that these words and actions might constitute a violation of Integrity First’s nonpartisanship requirement as a 501c3. If that nonprofit status were rescinded it could mean that the Integrity First would owe exorbitant sums of money in back taxes and their donors would not be eligible for a write-off.
Integrity First spokesman Brett Edkins claims that the group has, “already raised $2 million from large donors.” He also claims that they’ll be seeking small “grassroots” contributions in the future but for now that doesn’t seem to be a priority.
Their board of directors are all uber-wealthy investment types: Monica Graham, a hedge fund manager at Graham Partners, Dmitri Melhorn, a partner at the Vidinovo investment network and Susie Buell, founder of the Esprit clothing company and a venture capitalist.
We also know that Integrity First is receiving support from the SPLC who Kaplan claims helps them “track down the Nazis” being served by their civil litigation.
From there the trail goes somewhat cold because we have no way of tracking who is making these multi-million dollar contributions to this fly-by-night nonprofit. Suffice to say it’s most likely a usual assortment of elite America-hating Bolsheviks.
(UPDATE: $1 million dollar donation confirmed from Reid Hoffman, Jewish billionaire and founder of LinkedIn.)
