When I started thinking about the idea behind this story. I knew I wanted to give America a personable, funnier, lighter look into the hearts and minds of the J6 Political Prisoners whom I have the honor of calling my friends and family. You may also know them as your friends and family as we are all members of America’s oldest and newest extended Patriotic Family.
I decided on taking a journalistic approach. I would ask my friends, J6 Political Prisoners, a few questions and then build the story around these interviews. However, I never knew at the time the story would take a life of its own. I would merely be pen to paper.
I had no idea what I was going to ask. I knew I wanted to stay
away from Political views, our plight for America’s Freedoms, or unfair treatment from the District of Columbia, Department of Corrections. Not that these aren’t very important issues we currently deal with on a daily basis. I truly wanted to give America a honest and caring look into the hearts and minds of J6 Political Prisoners. How on earth would I ever get there?
I don’t have a journalistic background. However, I do have some experience in counseling. I supposed I could start with something trivial to break the ice and then do follow up questions to that and see where the conversation would take us, but still I had no questions. Then in
my wandering mind which is often all over the place. I was reminded of MAGA Mouse. I know, you’re saying MAGA Mouse. What is this? Who is this?
The backstory of MAGA Mouse. MAGA Mouse was an actual
live mouse that was found one chilly morning wrapped up in a J6 Political Prisoners thermal. He was then somehow humanely captured by J6 Political Prisoners here in District of Columbia, Department of Corrections, C2B/block. He was carried down stairs and was being shown to Duty Officer when the medical nurse who had walked in to do medication caught MAGA Mouse out the corner of her eye. This in turn compelled her to run out of the door, find and tell supervisory staff
that the J6 Political Prisoners chased her out of the building with a Rat and she was not going back. The duty officer in charge of J6 Political Prisoners was then phoned by the Captains office whom we later found out was phoned by the Warden and told to handle the situation. The Duty Officer then informed us he had been summoned to the Captains office for a briefing on the Mouse situation. We told the Duty Officer to tell the Captain that the Mouse had a Red Hat on and all the Prisoners are calling it MAGA Mouse. When the Duty Officer got back from the briefing. We asked if he told the Captain, he said the Captain about fell out of his chair laughing and the Warden had phoned everyone but the President of the United States on what to do about the Mouse. They had a full scale legal team meeting on how to handle the Mouse situation. What they finally decided on was have the Duty Officer humanely dispose of the Mouse. Only by the time the Duty Officer had returned MAGA Mouse had been placed in witness protection by the J6 Political Prisoners. MAGA Mouse would spend the next few weeks being nursed back to health by Robert “Bobby” Gieswein and then released back into the wild or jail, no one really knows. That is the backstory of MAGA Mouse.(Stay tuned for MORE of Animals from Within)

🇺🇸JAMES MCGREW: The Animals Within🇺🇸 10-12-21 Animals From Within I know your probably thinking. What in the world does this have to do with a look into the Hearts and Minds of J6 Political Prisoners? Ahhh, the questions, I now know what I will ask.
If you could have one animal, any animal living in your cell with you what would it be?
In my mind I would bait the J6 Political Prisoners with furry animals and then dig deeper with the why. What was to come from these interviews even I couldn't predict.
Interview 1 (Anonymous)
If you could have one animal, any animal in your cell with you what would it be? "A Libtard"
What is a Libtard? "A Libtard is kind of like a an orangutan. Except its not as smart. More like a creature from the magical land of Qtaria. It basically just throws (explicit) poop all day. You know, on second thoughts I don't think I want a Libtard as a pet."
OK so I didn't make it to question 2, the why. This was going to be a little harder then I thought.
Interview 2 (Jeffrey "JB" Brown Political Prisoner #378958)
If you could have one animal, any animal living in your cell with you what would it be? "Alien"
I thought for a second well that's not an animal, but who am I to stop where this is going.
Why, an Alien? "Because it could spit acid out of its mouth on the wall, make a hole and I could get out of here. Then it could put me on the Spaceship and drop me off when it was safe."
Nice, I didn't see that coming.
JB, is there anything else you want to say to America? "Yeah, send the Spaceship."
Well said Brother. (continued) https://www.givesendgo.com/G29WRrly Days
🇺🇸🇺🇸J6 STORIES FROM THE GULAG🇺🇸🇺🇸 🇺🇸JAMES MCGREW: The Animals Within🇺🇸 Interview 3 ( Sean McHugh Political Prisoner #378159)
If you could have one animal, any animal living in your cell with you what would it be? "Rhino"
After the last interview I kind of got an idea where this was headed.
Why? "Because it could break the wall down and get me out. "Have you thought about if it poops, that's a lot of poop to clean up? "Man if I had a rhino in my cell I would be riding off into the sunset on a rhino."
Hahaha, yeah your right.
I wanted to ask Shawn if he picked a Rhino because Mitch McConnell is his role model? I thought better of it knowing Shawn and the few choice words that would follow.

🇺🇸J6 STORIES FROM THE GULAG🇺🇸 🇺🇸JAMES MCGREW: The Animals Within🇺🇸 Interview 4 ( John Mellis Political Prisoner #376907)
If you could have one animal, any animal living in your cell with you what would it be? "Penguin, it would be cool."
Mellis, why would a Penguin be cool? "Hey, didn't you also want to pick a Penguin."
He got me there, it was my first choice until I thought about a Penguin being a bird and I didn't want to be cleaning up bird poop, but what can I say great minds think a like. So you want an Emperor Penguin? "No, don't be stupid! Nobody wants a big Penguin. I would have a small cute Penguin and it would have a spike studded collar. His name would be Spike and he would be an attack Penguin."
If anyone knows John Mellis, you know this conversation would go on for a half hour or more. He truly has a great imagination." Donate To John Here
🇺🇸J6 STORIES FROM THE GULAG🇺🇸 🇺🇸JAMES MCGREW: The Animals Within🇺🇸 Interview 5 ( Robert "Bobby" Gieswein Political Prisoner # 376980)
If you could have one animal, any animal living in your cell with you what would it be? "Goldfish"
Why a Goldfish? "Because he wears orange like me."
Bobby did you have Goldfish growing up? " Yes" So a Goldfish would remind you of a happier time? "Yes, and they would be a great edition to these grey walls."
Bobby, your gonna make me cry. Do you need a hug? "Yes"
Bobby has become one of my really great friends and sometimes friends just need hugs. https://www.givesendgo.com/G253Q https://t.me/TheAmericanGulagChronicles
🇺🇸J6 STORIES FROM THE GULAG🇺🇸 🇺🇸JAMES MCGREW: The Animals Within🇺🇸 Interview 6 ( Kash Kelly Political Prisoner #376778)
If you could have one animal, any animal living in your cell with you what would it be? "A Lion/Panther Hybrid"
Like a big Lion and a big Panther? What if it trys to eat you? "No, man don't be silly. A baby Lion with a big fluffy mane, but the color of a Panther."
Why? "Well, a Lion is a symbol of Freedom. He rules the plains of the Earth and you know I'd mix it with a Panther. You know like me.? You see, its about bringing Gods Animal Kingdom together. You know what I'm saying?"
Yes, Kash I actually do.
Kash has always got some type of symbolism in his stories. He is well spoken. Over the last couple of months we have become close. He also likes writing and poetry. He's almost as good as me. Hahaha https://www.givesendgo.com/KandE https://t.me/TheAmericanGulagChronicles
