Some say they couldn’t see any of the photos. I tried something else. Hope it worked.
I hadn’t intended to “go dark” this weekend. My plan was to stay close by my iPad/PC and keep tabs on what was going on, but people in my life had other plans for my time.
LandofMind sent these photos when he got home—thanks so much! He traveled all night on Thursday to meet with Col. Riley at the appointed time Friday morning and could only be there for one day before he had to make the long trip home.
I saw an estimate that there were 650 – 750 patriots in Washington, which is shockingly low. Many felt they had no choice but to go, and did everything they could including request donations from total strangers and got them, but unfortunately, not many felt that call to duty.
These are the kind of photos we WANT to see.

I listened to part of an interview with Col. Riley’s PR spokesperson, Deborah, and she said people were spreading a rumour that the Colonel had been arrested, based on a photo of him having a conversation with the police, however, no one was arrested at all. It was a peaceful rally—as intended.
Another rumour was that the NSA was making note of all the participants. Puh-leez!
And of course the tornadoes, etc. never materialized and it was a beautiful weekend.
Some good news: on May 25 the bikers will be rolling into town for their annual Rolling Thunder ride on the Memorial Day weekend—five days from now.
“Rolling Thunder is a motorcycle Run and First Amendment demonstration which began in 1988 to bring awareness to the POW/MIA issue and achieve full accountability for, and the return of all service members, alive or dead, which were abandoned after the Vietnam War.”

One unemployed young man on camera said he would be there for the duration. I hope a lot of people will actually be able to follow through and remain in Washington for awhile. It was interesting to hear the many and varied reasons patriots made a point of being in Washington for OAS and the issues that jolted them awake.
Overall it was an exercize in frustration for me trying to get live video feed, but it was better than nothing. No matter what does or does not transpire in Washington itself, I feel like a few more people will wake up to what’s going on and that some are taking action to make positive change; that America has reached a critical point in its evolution and must stand up for the life, liberty and freedom they lay claim to—yet is almost silently slipping from their grasp.
While the “great awakening” didn’t transpire this weekend, that’s not to say it won’t happen this month.
Overall, I found that while sleep was fleeting, I felt a welcome sense of calm and acceptance of what is, like effortlessly bobbing along over ocean waves in an inflatable raft… just going with it; maybe something to do with the opening of the Pleiadian Portal.
Kauilapele said he and his team had a fruitful weekend wrangling the energies in Maui and he expects things to ramp up and move along more swiftly now. May it be so. ~ BP
