On January 6, hundreds of thousands of people attended the final rally of former President Trump’s tenure at the Ellipse in Washington, D.C.
The vast majority of them were nonviolent when they staged a demonstration two miles away at the Capitol Building.
Democrats have dubbed the event an uprising due to a small number of aggressive participants.
Many individuals who only entered the Capitol grounds without entering the building have been wrongfully arrested.
Now, Democrats are attempting to disrupt elections on January 6… again.
Ryan Kelley is a real estate agent and business owner. And he is running for Michigan governor.
His campaign website describes his pro-liberty activities outside of the workplace.
He attended Grand Rapids Community College and worked on a degree in Electronics Engineering before starting to work for the CWA (Communication Workers of America) union at Ameritech, which later became SBC and now AT&T.
Leaving AT&T in 2011 for an entrepreneurial life, Ryan owned and built a real estate investment firm. In the mid 2010’s, Ryan partnered to build a franchise company, and while serving as COO, navigated complex legal contracts and disclosures. Later, as CEO, he developed custom proprietary software and facilitated office openings in multiple states, while leading large teams to success.
As 2020 began, and the coronavirus topic began to invade every aspect of our lives, Ryan quickly became a voice of freedom, hope and reason for the state of Michigan. Ryan led large rallies protesting the statewide lockdowns and mandates at the Capitol in Lansing and in Grand Rapids. The rally on April 30 th of 2020 in Lansing, organized by Ryan and one of his colleagues, was to encourage the state legislators not to extend the emergency powers of the governor beyond the specified time limit. This event inspired other frustrated Americans around the country to protest lockdowns in many states. Ryan and his colleague also organized a Nationwide Freedom March which took place on October 24th with residents of 51 cities in 26 states participating in some capacity.
Standing strong for American values and American history, is what Ryan is all about. During the riots which occurred across the United States in the summer of 2020, while exercising his 2nd Amendment rights, he guarded a Civil War Statue in his hometown of Allendale as it was threatened to be taken down by BLM and Antifa. The statue is still standing there today.
Kelley also attended the January 6th events. He protested at the Capitol Building. He didn’t enter the structure.
The FBI has now arrested him for this just days before the Michigan Republican Primary. This election will choose the challenger to Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
