Thousands Gather At Lincoln Memorial In Powerful Rally For Freedom From Mandates

It the face of towering COVID-19 lockdown and jab mandate pressure from D.C. and the pop media, an estimated 20,000-plus people gathered at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial Sunday, January 23, to send a message of resistance and hope.

The gathering was the Defeat the Mandates rally, and the presenters employed data, testimony, song, comedy, and camaraderie to put authoritarians like Joe Biden on notice that their kleptocratic thirst to steal freedom, dismissal of constitutional oaths, biased “reporting,” tax-fueled propaganda, and imperial jab edicts will not stand against truth and liberty.

With the combined efforts of Robert F. Kennedy’s Children’s Health Defense, Del Bigtree’s Informed Consent Action Network, the three-hour, 30-minute event was hosted by liberty-minded comedian JP Sears and raised the bar for truthful, well-executed, loving, spiritual meetings of Americans who want positive change.

They came from around the world and the U.S. They came despite leftist depictions of liberty-lovers as “potential terror threats,” and they came despite the rabidly authoritarian vaccine edict from D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser that offered city police numerous excuses to intimidate the attendees.

And they joined one another to hear speakers such as JP, Dr. Paul Marik and Dr. Pierre Kory of the Frontline Critical Care Alliance, Will Witt of PragerU, entrepreneur, writer, and expert statistician Steve Kirsch, and many more.  

Standing before the energized audience JP set the table with humor and guts, offering, in part:

I forget who it was, but someone said, ‘A problem can’t be solved at the same level of consciousness that created it.’ It was either Einstein, or Fauci. I get the two confused.

Then, he noted: 

I also want you to know -- spoiler alert -- freedom wins. I know that to be true because freedom is God’s way. Mandates are a human-made law. And mandates aren’t even made by the best of humanity. God’s law always wins out. So, freedom wins. The only question is, what’s the timeline that freedom wins in… and I think that you and I are here today to accelerate the timeline that freedom wins in. And we’re not asking permission.


Musician Five Times August sang his hit song “Silent War,” and singer-songwriter Julie Elizabeth, who offered the vocals for “Silence.”

Soon, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose book, “The Real Anthony Fauci” is full of more citations than many old phonebooks contained names, took to the mic to note, among numerous key points:

They took away due-process rule-making. They’ve taken away our right to be free or warrantless searches and seizure with this very intrusive track-and-trace surveillance… We are watching right now what I never thought I would see in my lifetime. I read in Orwell, and Kafka, and Aldus Huxley – these dystopian science-fiction novels – that one day, the United States would be overtaken by fascism. Fascism, incidentally, is defined -- Mussolini defined it as a merger of state and corporate power – orchestrated by Tony Fauci. What we’re seeing today is what I call Turnkey Totalitarianism.

He added:

The minute they hand you that vaccine passport, every right that you have is transformed into a privilege, contingent upon your obedience to arbitrary government dictates. It will make you a slave! And what do we do about this? We RESIST!
