I don’t need to tell you what is going on in Washington, D.C. right now. If you don’t know, turn on your TV to any channel. It is insurrection and it is treason, but we have problems right now at the Roundhouse with armed Cowboys. Action Alert Info.
The action called for below is focused on domestic terrorists at the Roundhouse who are not wearing masks, but it is more than this. We are witnessing on national television right now what happens when wanton disregard for law is encouraged by leadership and appropriate responses are not taken by those who have a responsibility to protect the law. You will find a story from the ABQ Journal at the bottom of this post, validating the hundreds of unmasked Trump protesters. For now the term “protester” applies, but so does the term lawbreakers as they are flagrantly defying Covid regulations.
In DC, every single one of those terrorists should be charged with treason and if this day does not result in Trump’s immediate impeachment and his also being charged with treason, we are only sending the message that even this is acceptable. And I want to scream every time I hear news media call them “protesters.”
At least it is official, Jon Ossoff has been declared the winner and Mitch McConnell can…… [I want to remain dignified. Not easy.]
Action below is focused on masks, but we need to use the laws we have to protect our state and nation. This is insane.
EVERYONE – please focus on POSTING on social media + emailing the Governor and using the health violation report link.
RIGHT NOW in SANTE FE: There are hundreds of heavily-armed Trump supporters NOT WEARING MASKS and we need to report this now. This is one way to actively push back, shame them in media, levy fines, and stop these coup-supporters.
“STOP THE SPREAD: Cowboys & Bikers for Trump spreading conspiracies and possibly COVID in NM”
#StopTheSpreadABOUT: “Cowboys for Trump” & “Bikers for Trump” are massing at our capital in Santa Fe to protest the election results. Although they call themselves patriots, they want to overturn a fair election. This large gathering, in the midst of a pandemic, with very few masks and no social distancing endangers the lives of New Mexicans and threatens to overwhelm our medical system.
“The Department of Health, under the provisions of this law, may issue civil administrative penalties of up to $5,000 a day per violation of an emergency public health order. The state Supreme Court has upheld the authority of the state Department of Health in this matter.”CALL TO ACTION: We urge enforcement of the public health directives on these groups and fine them if they won’t wear masks or socially distance. Post or ask questions like – Why aren’t you keeping us safe? Our hospitals are already full of Covid patients, and these unmasked protesters may make people ill, what are you doing to stop that? Why aren’t you protecting the public from these Trump supporters whose actions increase illness and death?

Here is a report from the ABQ Journal, plus, when I was in town this afternoon you could see a police helicopter flying over the Roundhouse. Thanks for your comment, but we really have to begin to oppose this insanity. Paul
“SANTA FE, N.M. — As a mob of protesters broke into the U.S. Capitol Building during the a joint session of congress, hundreds of protesters converged on the Roundhouse in Santa Fe in reaction to unfounded claims of voter fraud during the 2020 Presidential Election.
Unlike what was happening in Washington, D.C., the Santa Fe demonstration was mostly peaceful. However, at least one fight broke out between Trump supporters and counter-protesters and the state capitol was partially evacuated while the demonstration was going on outside, according to Raul Burciaga, director of the New Mexico Legislative Council. He said he was communicating with New Mexico State Police.
The hundreds of protesters in Santa Fe expressed their displeasure with a variety of issues, including false allegations of voter fraud and mask ordinances.
“It is the people’s house,” said Laura Jans of Mora. “As long as they’re respectful and don’t destroy anything.”
The roughly 250 demonstrations outside the Roundhouse was made up mostly of non-mask wearing white people and included members of the Proud Boys and Cowboys for Trump.
One woman was heard celebrating the shutdown of the nation’s capitol.
“We shut down the House and the Senate,” she said with glee.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham issued a statement Wednesday afternoon on the happenings at the U.S. capitol.
“There is no place in our country or state for this. This is beneath the United States of America. It is not who we are,” she said. “It is nothing less than domestic terrorism, enacted in an effort to overturn a free and fair election. I am praying for the law enforcement and military personnel working to protect American lives from this anti-democratic riot and attempted insurrection.”
She said law enforcement in New Mexico would continue to monitor any demonstrations going on here.
She blamed President Trump for creating the chaos.
“His reprehensible attacks on the rule of law and American democracy have directly inspired this unconscionable display of disorder and mob mentality. He is responsible,” she said.
