For about a month, fans of President Donald Trump claimed that there would be another huge rally in Washington, D.C. and that he would be reinstated as the president. Pillow CEO Mike Lindell claimed it would happen on Aug. 15, just ten days away.
But now, a Trump ally is announcing his own event for Sept. 18. The Huffington Post cited the architect, Matt Braynard as he spoke to Steve Bannon on a recent podcast. "We're going back to the Capitol, right where it started. And it's going to be huge," Braynard promised.
"As we continue to raise the profiles of these individuals" who have been arrested, it "makes it harder and harder for the left's phony narrative about an insurrection to stick," Braynard said. "We're going to push back on the phony narrative that there was an insurrection."
The majority of the cases are moving quickly through the legal system with people pleading out and getting away on probation. However, there are members of militias and those who worked to plan the attack on the Capitol. Those appear to be some of the cases that seem to be taking longer.

Mike Lindell's CNN interview was one for the history books. The pillow CEO handed over his "evidence" of election fraud, showing pages of "evidence." But when CNN gave the pages to cybersecurity experts, but no one could figure out what it said.
When faced with the scrutiny, Lindell claimed the CNN expert wasn't a real expert.
It's just another in a long line of complications in Lindell's "proof" that the 2020 election was somehow stolen. As of Feb. he has lost $65 million in pillow revenue after his election fraud crusade. Lindell, who is described as someone who "speaks loudly and nonstop," has claimed that he's on a kind of holy mission from God to reinstate Donald Trump. He believes it will be one of the greatest heavenly miracles observed.
"He's done so well, I worry that he'll lose everything," friend Jeanette Lenzen said. "He just has all the faith in God that God's going to help him get all this stuff. But sometimes, God says 'No.'"
While some folks online are uring Lindell's family to get him help and others mocked the CEO, a least one supporter of Donald Trump called Lindell "cringe and batty."

The Washington Post reported Thursday evening that President Joe Biden is thinking of playing hardball with anti-vaxxers continuing to spread COVID-19 throughout the United States.
The administration is looking at how to use the White House's regulatory power to force safety requirements. While there are legitimate reasons that some patients' doctors don't want them to get the vaccine yet or some religious faiths have a long-time, documented anti-medicine approach, most anti-vaxxers are denying the shot on conspiracy grounds.
In the past, Biden has used incentives to encourage the vaccine. He's worked with private sector employers and states that have offered million-dollar lotteries, prizes and scholarships to spur vaccinations. The new delta-variant has been another thing currently encouraging people to get the vaccine as there has been a 39 percent increase in deaths since the variant. Of those who have died, 99 percent are anti-vaccine people.
Biden's "effort could apply to institutions as varied as long-term-care facilities, cruise ships and universities, potentially impacting millions of Americans, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive conversations," said the report. "The conversations are in the early phases and no firm decisions have been made, the people said."
Red states have already moved to try and block the use of masks and vaccine passports, causing further problems among businesses that want to protect customers and employees. The mask ban in Arkansas, for example, will likely lead to the state closing schools again, said one state senator this week.
"There is a particular focus in the discussions on whether restrictions on Medicare dollars or other federal funds could be used to persuade nursing homes and other long-term-care facilities to require employees to be vaccinated, according to one of the people familiar with the talks," said the report.
It would be a drastic step that isn't typically Biden's leadership style, but a lighter piece of the proposal could be part of the next steps.
