January 6th Truth and Light Freedom Festival

Campaign Created by: Sheryl Bashlor

The funds from this campaign will be received by Sheryl Bashlor.

Goal: USD $25,000
Raised: USD $ 9,797

Hello Patriots! I am republishing this campaign, so am leaving the original story below....that being said. I am combining our January 6th events and my social media pages in order to keep doing what i can for my Jan 6 family and I truly love it. I'm going to monetize my social media pages and as well attempt to raise funds for the events through donations. Right now I need to get back on my feet personally, I need to get Star Link internet among other things. I have lost most everything, but I don't want to stop this fight. For those who know me personally, know that I have many health issues and am still seeing new doctors, getting new therapies, and am currently unable to work. There are some days that i cannot get out of bed because the pain, vertigo, or something else makes it very difficult. I have to keep it together a little longer, Bobby gets released to a halfway house between December and February, probation has already approved the house for after that, however my foreclosure is January 10th!!  I was working with a HUD counselor, but my phone got shut off today. I am working on that now.  I truly am in a darkest before the dawn situation. Other then my personal situation, the reason that i am posting on this campaign is like i mentioned earlier...I plan to monetize my social media pages. I also would like to be able to hold our events without sponsorship from other Jan 6 organizations or posting for donations when we would like to hold a private event. It opens us up to haters, as we all know. I am also hoping to raise enough funds for star link and an official LLC that merges everything we do together...including a board, an accountant, a website, and full transparency. I  America has forgotten what Independence Day is all about!!  

Unbeknownst to many, we have political prisoners in the United States and their constitutional rights are being severely violated!  We truly have a two-tiered justice system where American citizens are being persecuted based on their political beliefs.  

Some are still unjustly and cruelly incarcerated, on home arrest awaiting trial, pushed to take an unfair plea deal, subjected to a sham of a trial in the DC swamp.

The families and loved ones of these politically persecuted patriots are suffering after losing, in many cases their primary source of income.  Many of those who are not incarcerated, have nevertheless lost their jobs or businesses.  

YOU cannot let these wonderful American patriots be forgotten!!  

We are holding a festival/retreat in Missouri July 1-3, 2022 to raise awareness for the January 6th Political Prisoners as well as provide a retreat for January 6th Patriots and their loved ones.

Saturday July 2nd and Sunday July 3rd will be open to the public. 

Saturday will allow people to view several documentaries throughout the day, including:

- Capitol Punishment

- Righting History

- Tucker Carlson's Patriot Purge

- The Truth about January 6th

In the evening there will be a candlelight vigil for our political prisoners and fireworks to celebrate our country's independence.

Sunday will include a sunrise service and prayer time.

We are trying to raise money for the event to make it a huge success and truly a time of fellowship, love, and remembering what Independence Day is really all about.

We are still working out the details and will keep everyone up to date on speakers, entertainment, and any changes to our itinerary.

If you would like to keep up to date on some of our political prisoners in the DC Gulag, you can follow us on Twitter, Truth, and Gettr under the name Jan6_Detainees.

Hello Patriots. This year's festival was so different from last years'. I want to thank you all for making such a difference. We got a late start, had bad press (to include CNN, although they did not show to cover our event), we had technical interference, I was doxed, but they did not stop us. We were still together and we still had a good time. We had a great documentary filmed there, thank you Professor Clements for always supporting us and being such an amazing Patriot and a wonderful friend. I am working on setting up a foundation to fulling commit to our Freedom Festival and also our January 6th event every year. I will be making the festival for Jan 6ers only from here on out and the Jan 6 event will be something else entirely. It's going to be huge this election year, get ready!! I have some really big plans and will be setting up a fundraiser soon. Thank you all so much, for everything.

More wonderful thank you letters. Once again thank you all so much, i cannot express with words how great this was for all of us!

This was really so much more than I was expecting. Getting to meet so many wonderful people whose lives are forever changed and to learn that their stories were so similar to mine. The extraordinary courage to fight their battles is nothing short of inspiring. I am so very grateful for the opportunity to let them know that we haven't forgotten them, to give them new hope, and let them know that we will keep fighting until their loved ones are home. 

Thank you, Michael Quick

I would love to thank those that made it made it possible from the GSG donors for inviting me to Missouri and making it possible by providing the air travel and rental car during these financial hard times for my family and I.

Thanks, Retired U.S. Army CPT. Gabriel Garcia

Thank you so much to the people who allowed us to plan the event without worrying about not
being able to pay the bills. We were able to do all the things we had planned. We are forever
grateful for your generosity and Support. Meeting other families was really encouraging and our
hearts were filled with emotions and gratitude. We really bonded together. We cried, we prayed,
we worshiped. It was glorious. The call from the prisoners was amazing. The documentaries
were very informative. The session with professor Clementz gave us hope.
May God bless you all.

Thank you to all the beautiful souls who donated their time and money to make this event
happen!! It was wonderful and much more than I could’ve hoped for. I can’t begin to tell you all
what a blessing this event was, not only for me, but for all the 1/6ers! Some of the detainees
were able to call in and speak to everyone, it lifted their spirits to hear all the love and support
out here for them. Even those who are not detained, are not ‘free’ they are in their own prisons.
We all are. We were able to enjoy a good old fashioned Independence Day weekend together
and it was beautiful!! The mood was light and joyful, full of love and fellowship. We all needed it
more than words can express and the feeling we received is equally hard to express. We are
wanting to do this every year and pray next year our detainees and our country will be truly free
to celebrate with us! We appreciate you all so much! God bless you all and thank you again for
everything you have done for us!!                                                                                                                     Sherry Bashlor-Mom to Robert ‘Bobby’ Gieswein

What an amazing 4th of July weekend. Thank you to those who organized and those who came.
To the people who came out of the kindness of their hearts, out of curiosity or for
companionship—you have no idea how much it means to us. After 18 months of yelling into the
wind, to know we not only have people who hear our prayer but who gave up their time and
rolled up their sleeves in solidarity and support of our loved ones means the world. Seeing some
of the people who came just because they were invited by a friend, not knowing exactly what
they were getting into but recognizing with shock and sadness what is happening to good and
decent men (and women)—was such a great moment of acknowledgement. Jules' beautiful
singing (such a gift), and Glenda and Greg serving up all of the delicious eats and not skimping
on the storytelling—were the kind of special ingredient we didn’t know we were missing until we
got it. For those who know him, hearing stories about Jon, who is making an impact on lots of
lives even inside a cell, filled my cup. And all of the sweet children, awesome fireworks, and
new friends. None of it will be forgotten. Thank you for not only listening and caring but for
spending special time. This was a wonderful weekend to remember forever!
Kelly (& Jon!)
On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to express heartfelt gratitude to all the organizers
and supporters of the J6 retreat in Missouri this past weekend! I really don't know how to
describe the feeling of that enormous weight being lifted off you after such a long time, if only for
a brief respite. I had said to my wife that I cannot remember when I have been so relaxed. The
outpouring of prayer and genuine caring support was absolutely overwhelming! ❤️🙏
Up until last weekend we had felt very alone and mostly kept to ourselves, seldom leaving
What you have done for us is beyond any value you can place on it, for you have given us hope
and a renewed faith in God. Though the five of us are to be sentenced in roughly six weeks
now, we have been so profoundly reminded that our Father is with us and gives us our strength
to face whatever this world has to offer. Thank you again and may God bless you all 😊
Tom Munn and Family
We would like to thank all those who contributed and support our J6 Truth and Light event.
Thank you for your generosity as it has made a huge impact in the lives of the families that were
able to make the journey and even more so you all helped to lift the spirits of our beloved J6
prisoners. What an amazing weekend from our volunteers, attendees and our families online.
We appreciate and value your support and generosity.
Thank you
Steve Quick
We ran out of room again...Our thank you letters continue into the third update!

  The families of J6ers met in Missouri in a beautiful scenic area away from distractions and the
everyday nightmare they have endured since January 6th.
Each represented family wanted to thank our supporters for allowing this event to take place.
Without YOU, it would have been impossible to make this happen. It means a lot not only to all
who were present but also to the residents of the American Gulag. Yes, indeed they called us on
Saturday and told us how encouraging it was to them. Jake Lang who is at the Alexandria
Detention Center in Virginia called as well. Hearing their voices was very emotional and exciting
as well..
Though few were able to attend in comparison to the number of people who have been arrested
so far (around 900) we are grateful that such an event could be put together for these families.
Iit was an amazing time of fellowship, prayer, and recharging batteries. It is hard to imagine
families have been spending the last 18 months battling a corrupt DOJ with little time of respite.
We particularly think of our family members who are incarcerated in various jails across the
country. Their suffering is great and so it is for those who remain behind. Many mothers, wives,
children, or significant others have not been able to see the face of their loved ones since their
arrest. Meeting with others in the same situation was extremely beneficial.
Hebrews 13:3 ESV Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with
them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.
Matthew 25:36 ESV "I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in
prison and you came to me."
Below is what our J6 families are saying.

May God bless you, our supporters.
Thank you to all the amazing wonderful people who donated to make this event happen! We are
so grateful for your generosity and support! God bless you!

God’s timing is always perfect. He knows everything we need, so we must have needed a little
kindness in our life. He powerfully used y’all’s act of kindness, so thank you for everything that
y’all have done. My prayer is that the Lord will bless you all for your kindness. My family is so
grateful for the donations, prayers, and support, it makes such a difference in a dark time, but
your light of goodness has shown brightly on the 1/6ers and their families. The fight is not over,
and the continued prayers for our 1/6ers is much appreciated ♥️🇺🇸 Again…thank you, and God
