Sunrise Movement: The Affininty Groups

For months the Sunrise Movement and those involved with this group have been plotting a coup against the Trump administration under the false pretense that the administration will refuse to concede the elections to Joe Biden whose campaign committed fraud against the American people by cheating in the elections. While the 2020 Presidential elections have not been certified, nor has any state declared a winner of their respective contest, the AP and all major news media outlets, including: FOX, CNN, MSNBC, ABC and others have called the Presidential race for Joe Biden. These declarations by the press body has also been supported by major social media websites Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. This perfect conglomeration of black hat politicians, deep state media outlets, and leftists social media platforms has empowered radical, Communist groups to take action in the streets while believing they are defending the Constitution and protecting the integrity of our elections. So who are some of the people involved in the Sunrise Movement? In the previous article we talked about the actual 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is recruiting members of our youth to rally and protest in the name of environmentalism and job-creating, when in fact they are merely teaching our young ones violent and disruptive behavior in the name of political and social change. But as released by investigative journalist, Millie Weaver, we see in Zoom chat group meetings that the Sunrise Movement and the affinity groups surrounding them have at the least a plan that includes disruption and at the most will give Trump supporters a taste of some ultra-violence.

The Zoom Chat

Members of the Sunrise Group and affinity groups were meeting on Zoom chat as early as September 16, 2020 to discuss plans to stop the Trump Administration in the wake of a coup against incoming Biden Administration, a fact no one in the group would argue. The plan was that Biden would secure the 2020 Presidential election. Even more curious was the fact that this group of individuals already knew which states would be highly contested for voter fraud, and were awaiting a declaration by Trump not to concede the election. In the Zoom meetings, the groups discuss plans for disruption, halting the coup by Trump, places to meet, organizations of concern and their location (such as police departments, fire departments, etc.), leadership and organization during street action, possibilities of live ammunition being used, condoning public and federal property as part of the disruption, legal ways to protect themselves and retain their jobs (if federally employed), and ways to slow down any policy action the president might take through bureaucratic bottle-necking and slowdown.

Two of the affinity groups associated with the Sunrise Movement need no introduction: Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. The members representing these two groups, as seen in the Zoom chat, are both quick to talk about disruption and encourage violence as a means to effect change. The BLM member in one chat session states, “I encourage for all of us to be fighting for revolution before today, today, tomorrow, afterwards…” Whereas, ANTIFA representation is barely coherent and simply wants to “get to” the disruption. Articulate speakers, such as Lisa Fithian, author of the book, Shut It Down, which touts itself as, ‘A veteran activist’s guide to direct action and strategic civil disobedience as the most radical and rapid means to social change,’ speaks about condoning violent action; she asks if there is going “to be a war” or “if people are going to be killed,” and believes these things will happen.

They have compiled lists of key government buildings, media outlets, police stations, firefighters, and Trump boosters. They have in mind plans “to surround the White House and have people do stuff.” Fithian tells those in the meeting they have “to be willing to put our bodies on the line and take on some discomfort, sacrifice, and risk in order to change things” all while reassuring them that they have the moral high ground against the insurrection of Donald Trump and his supporters.

In other meetings, such as with the “Feds for Democracy” chat, Americans see top people in government, SECs (Senior Executive Officer) leading the meetings giving members advice on legal procedures and protections, on how-to disrupt policy and directive by administrative and bureaucratic means, and reassurances that as Federal Employees they are becoming the penultimate public servant and defender of the Constitution. One such SEC is Sarah Starrett, who serves as the general attorney for the Department of Labor, councils chat members on procedures that would allow them to perform this coup and maintain their position of employment. She advices them on specific activities they can and cannot do, as well as ways to protect themselves while participating in such chat sessions. Another member, employee of the State Department, as well as Program Director at the United States Institute of Peace, Maria J. Stephan, instructs listeners on the how and why bureaucrats in government are important, and how as federal employees they are important to disrupting the Trump administration by slowing things down on the administrative side, if not completely disobeying the directive given by the Commander in Chief.

Still, in other chats we see DHS employees, CISA employees, government contractors, FDA employees, and other departments of government. We see an amalgamation of Left wing radical groups, passive aggressive progressives, Democrat bureaucrats, and pretentious Socialist and Communist individuals all part of various groups, most of which are 501(c)3 organizations, groups funded by people’s tax dollars, and they are using that tax money to plan political action and an insurrection against the President of these United States of America. Some of the groups include:

Shut Down D.C. – “ShutDownDC uses strategic direct action to advance justice and hold officials accountable. We’re a growing movement and we’re getting ready to show up for each other this week, to preserve the pillars of democracy and fight for a better future. Now’s the time to get involved so we’re ready to hit the streets.” (

The Palm Collective – “Funded on the frontlines of the protests prompted by the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, the Palm Collective is a black led organization that seeks to build a coalition of grassroots organizations in the DMV and beyond. We are committed to demanding forever change that will put an end to systemic racism and building an America that is for the people, by the people, through the power of collective action.” (

ANTIFA – “An anti-fascist action and leftwing, political movement in the United States comprising an array of autonomous groups and individuals that aim to achieve their objectives through the use of both nonviolent and violent direct action rather than through policy reform. A highly decentralized movement, Antifa political activists are anit-racists who engage in protest tactics, seeking to combat fascists and racists such as new-Nazis, white supremacists, and other far-right extremists. This may involve digital activism, harassment, physical violence, and property damage against those whome they identify as belonging to the far right.”(

Remove Trump – “This project was initiated by a loose and diverse network of grassroots organizers from many movements. We invite all who want to support this initiative to join it by building it.” (

Sunrise Movement – “Sunrise is a youth movement to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. We’re building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people.” (

Black Lives Matter – “Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.” (
