Eight days before the January 6 rally, Julie Fancelli wired a total of $650,000 to three organizations that helped stage and promote the event.
Julie Fancelli is a wealthy Publix heiress. Her Dad founded Publix. She has no formal position with Publix. She is merely a stockholder.
Julie is 72. She and her husband have two homes. One in Italy, the other Florida. They spend most of their time in Italy. She and her husband live a low key life. Julie is regarded as a “good woman” who gives to “worthy causes.”.
The purpose of her giving the $650,000 was to help people attend the January 6 rally.
The contributions were in three separate huge chunks of money.
One $200,000 to the State Tea Party Express to pay for ads encouraging Republicans to protest at the Capitol on January 6.
Another $300,000 to the Women for America First. The organization was one of the organizers of the January 6 rally at The Ellipse.
One hundred fifty thousand dollars to a non-profit offshoot of the Republican Attorneys General Association.
A statement has been issued on Julie’s behalf that she would never support “violence” as “unfolded January 6.”
Julie’s family and friends say she has become “obsessed” with right wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Jones and his show Infowars have been subpoenaed to testify before the January Six Committee.
It is claimed investigation has revealed Julie and Jones had one communication between 12/27 and 1/1 after Jones’ team explained to her how she could support his efforts to overturn Trump’s election loss.
Julie’s brother in law Barry Barnett said, “Julie is one of the finest people I know, and I am sorry she got tied up with this guy.”
Julie’s relationship with Jones has been described as her having an “affinity for Alex Jones and his conspiracy theories and that sort of thing.”
It has been reported Julie was set to travel to Washington, stay at the Willard, and attend the rally she helped fund, but cancelled the trip over COVID-19 pandemic concerns.
The most recent COVID surge continues.
An example is Michigan.
Michigan now “has more patients hospitalized for COVID-19 than ever before.” Michigan numbers shot up 88 percent in recent days. “We have more patients than we’ve ever had at any point, and we’ve seen more people die at a rate we’ve never seen die before.”
Jim Dover is President & CEO of Sparrow Health Systems. He reported that 75 percent of deaths are persons unvaccinated. He believes the number has not yet peaked.
Israel has been on top of the virus from day one. Israeli health officials have told their people to be ready for endless boosters: “We will need to take the 4th shot, the 5th shot, the 6th shot and the 7th.”
A Texas state judge has ruled enforcement of the Texas abortion law unconstitutional. The ruling comes before the U.S. Supreme Court has rendered its decision.
The judge ruled the law “violated the Texas Constitution because it allows private citizens to sue abortion providers.”
Brian Williams is one of the most distinguished news broadcasters of our time. He signed off his MSNBC show last night advising it was his last.
His plan is to rest. However, he advised he will return in some capacity down the road.
He told his audience his “biggest worry is for my country.”
Enjoy your day!
