IL-11: Catalina Lauf Advisor Alex Bruesewitz Contacted by U.S. House Select Committee Investigating January 6, 2021

Alex Bruesewitz

Will Lauf’s current or previous association with Bruesewitz and his X Strategies consulting firm help or hurt her campaign in the more moderate 11th District, especially after Bruesewitz’s appearance with Tucker Carlson last night?

Note from John Lopez: At this point, I do not know if Alex Bruesewitz’s X Strategies consulting firm is still being retained by Catalina Lauf’s congressional campaign since Congressman Adam Kinzinger announced he was not seeking reelection on October 29, and I know her campaign will not respond to me if asked. Given the stakes have been raised significantly in connection with January 6, 2021 this past week, and Bruesewitz tweeting about Lauf’s fundraising last night, the story relevant to the IL-11 Republican primary election.

Last night, Alex Bruesewitz appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show on FOX News to respond to being contacted by the U.S. House select committee investigating January 6.

Full context of the interview tweeted last night be Bruesewitz:

The announcement the 24-year old, Gen Z (born in 1997) Bruesewitz was financially helping several accused of wrongdoing in connection with the Capitol Riot was news. Bruesewitz’s estimated net worth is $5 million, and during his interview he told Carlson he had already made his millions and is willing to give back.

Bruesewitz willingness to help, and contacting some of the accused prompted the House select committee to contact Bruesewitz.

Last March within Lauf’s first month after announcing her primary challenge against Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R, Channahon), she announced Bruesewitz would be advising her campaign and he appeared with her in Rockford at the campaign event headlined by Scott Presler and Kim Klacik.

Campaign disclosure reports filed by Lauf’s campaign with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) confirmed payments to X Strategies in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of last year, totaling 23,033.87, with the last payment to X Strategies made in late July.

Lauf’s campaign has not published their 4th quarter FEC filing, which are due on January 31.

Last night after his appearance on FOX News, Bruesewitz was tweeting up a storm.

In one tweet, Bruesewitz predicted a year from now, Lauf, along with many high profile Republicans running for Congress this year like Anna Paulina Luna (R, FL-13), Karoline Leavitt (R, NH-01), Joe Kent (R, WA-03) and others will be members of the House after winning in November.

Additionally, Bruesewitz tweeted this about Lauf, which Lauf retweeted last night.

From the desk of John Lopez: Bruesewitz says, “…Lauf campaign…raised over $1m[illion] in just a couple of months.”

That’s an embellishment, as through September, Lauf had only raised $791K cash, and while I believe she’s raised over $1 million through the end of 2021, she sure didn’t raise it inside of 2 months.

Catalina Lauf & Anna Paulina Luna 4/3/21

If that were true, Lauf’s campaign would have announced their numbers early.

Put in perspective, Lauf’s friend Anna Paulina Luna of Florida, who a) won her primary in 2020, and b) has former President Trump’s endorsement, plus hosted two fundraisers for Luna at Mar-a-Lago, reported raising $500K for the 4th quarter this past week.

But then the real whopper, Bruesewitz claiming it was Lauf who caused Kinzinger to abandon reelection, implying “redistricting” was an excuse in my honest opinion nonsense. The real reason Kinzinger abandoned reelection was redistricting and Congressman Darin LaHood (R, Dunlap) being drawn in the same district.

Honestly, Lauf abandoned IL-16 because of redistricting and LaHood, too (who knew Lauf had something in common with Kinzinger).

How much Bruesewitz’s firm was paid by Lauf’s campaign during the 4th quarter will be known over the next couple of weeks, and maybe after Kinzinger dropped, Bruesewitz’s retainer as a paid consultant for Lauf was dropped, too.

But the other reason the Capitol Riot stakes went up was due to the Thursday announcement the Department of Justice indictments issued against 11 people on “seditious conspiracy” in connection with 1/6/21.

From the Department of Justice Office of Public Affairs:

Leader of Oath Keepers and 10 Other Individuals Indicted in Federal Court for Seditious Conspiracy and Other Offenses Related to U.S. Capitol Breach

Eight Others Facing Charges in Two Related Cases

A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia returned an indictment yesterday, which was unsealed today, charging 11 defendants with seditious conspiracy and other charges for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, which disrupted a joint session of the U.S. Congress that was in the process of ascertaining and counting the electoral votes related to the presidential election.

According to court documents, Elmer Stewart Rhodes III, 56, of Granbury, Texas, who is the founder and leader of the Oath Keepers; and Edward Vallejo, 63, of Phoenix, Arizona, are being charged for the first time in connection with events leading up to and including Jan. 6. Rhodes was arrested this morning in Little Elm, Texas, and Vallejo was arrested this morning in Phoenix.

In addition to Rhodes and Vallejo, those named in the indictment include nine previously charged defendants: Thomas Caldwell, 67, of Berryville, Virginia; Joseph Hackett, 51, of Sarasota, Florida; Kenneth Harrelson, 41, of Titusville, Florida; Joshua James, 34, of Arab, Alabama; Kelly Meggs, 52, of Dunnellon, Florida; Roberto Minuta, 37, of Prosper, Texas; David Moerschel, 44, of Punta Gorda, Florida; Brian Ulrich, 44, of Guyton, Georgia and Jessica Watkins, 39, of Woodstock, Ohio. In addition to the earlier charges filed against them, they now face additional counts for seditious conspiracy and other offenses.

Eight other individuals affiliated with the Oath Keepers, all previously charged in the investigation, remain as defendants in two related cases. All defendants – except Rhodes and Vallejo – previously were charged in a superseding indictment. The superseding indictment has now effectively been split into three parts: the 11-defendant seditious conspiracy case, a seven-defendant original case, and a third case against one of the previously charged defendants.

In one of the related cases, the original superseding indictment, charges remain pending against James Beeks, 49, of Orlando, Florida; Donovan Crowl, 51, of Cable, Ohio; William Isaacs, 22, of Kissimmee, Florida; Connie Meggs, 60, of Dunnellon, Florida; Sandra Parker, 63, of Morrow, Ohio; Bernie Parker, 71, of Morrow, Ohio, and Laura Steele, 53, of Thomasville, North Carolina. The other case charges Jonathan Walden, 57, of Birmingham, Alabama.

The three indictments collectively charge all 19 defendants with corruptly obstructing an official proceeding. Eighteen of the 19 defendants – the exception is Walden – are charged with conspiring to obstruct an official proceeding and conspiring to prevent an officer of the United States from discharging a duty. Eleven of the 19 defendants are charged with seditious conspiracy. Some of the defendants are also facing other related charges.

As alleged in the indictments, the Oath Keepers are a large but loosely organized collection of individuals, some of whom are associated with militias. Though the Oath Keepers will accept anyone as members, they explicitly focus on recruiting current and former military, law enforcement and first-responder personnel. Members and affiliates of the Oath Keepers were among the individuals and groups who forcibly entered the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

The seditious conspiracy indictment alleges that, following the Nov. 3, 2020, presidential election, Rhodes conspired with his co-defendants and others to oppose by force the execution of the laws governing the transfer of presidential power by Jan. 20, 2021. Beginning in late December 2020, via encrypted and private communications applications, Rhodes and various co-conspirators coordinated and planned to travel to Washington, D.C., on or around Jan. 6, 2021, the date of the certification of the electoral college vote, the indictment alleges. Rhodes and several co-conspirators made plans to bring weapons to the area to support the operation. The co-conspirators then traveled across the country to the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area in early January 2021.

According to the seditious conspiracy indictment, the defendants conspired through a variety of manners and means, including: organizing into teams that were prepared and willing to use force and to transport firearms and ammunition into Washington, D.C.; recruiting members and affiliates to participate in the conspiracy; organizing trainings to teach and learn paramilitary combat tactics; bringing and contributing paramilitary gear, weapons and supplies – including knives, batons, camouflaged combat uniforms, tactical vests with plates, helmets, eye protection and radio equipment – to the Capitol grounds; breaching and attempting to take control of the Capitol grounds and building on Jan. 6, 2021, in an effort to prevent, hinder and delay the certification of the electoral college vote; using force against law enforcement officers while inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021; continuing to plot, after Jan. 6, 2021, to oppose by force the lawful transfer of presidential power, and using websites, social media, text messaging and encrypted messaging applications to communicate with co-conspirators and others.

On Jan. 6, 2021, a large crowd began to gather outside the Capitol perimeter as the Joint Session of Congress got under way at 1 p.m. Crowd members eventually forced their way through, up and over U.S. Capitol Police barricades and advanced to the building’s exterior façade. Shortly after 2 p.m., crowd members forced entry into the Capitol by breaking windows, ramming open doors, and assaulting Capitol police and other law enforcement officers. At about this time, according to the indictment, Rhodes entered the restricted area of the Capitol grounds and directed his followers to meet him at the Capitol.

At approximately 2:30 p.m., as detailed in the indictment, Hackett, Harrelson, Meggs, Moerschel and Watkins, and other Oath Keepers and affiliates – many wearing paramilitary clothing and patches with the Oath Keepers name, logo, and insignia – marched in a “stack” formation up the east steps of the Capitol, joined a mob, and made their way into the Capitol. Later, another group of Oath Keepers and associates, including James, Minuta, and Ulrich, formed a second “stack” and breached the Capitol grounds, marching from the west side to the east side of the Capitol building and up the east stairs and into the building.

While certain Oath Keepers members and affiliates breached the Capitol grounds and building, others remained stationed just outside of the city in quick reaction force (QRF) teams. According to the indictment, the QRF teams were prepared to rapidly transport firearms and other weapons into Washington, D.C., in support of operations aimed at using force to stop the lawful transfer of presidential power. The indictment alleges that the teams were coordinated, in part, by Caldwell and Vallejo.

The charge of seditious conspiracy carries a statutory maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

This case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Department of Justice National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section. Valuable assistance was provided by U.S. Attorney’s Offices in the Northern District of Texas and the District of Arizona.

The case is being investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office with valuable assistance provided by the FBI’s Dallas and Phoenix Field Offices. These charges are the result of significant cooperation between agents and staff across numerous FBI Field Offices, including those in Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Arizona, Alabama and Georgia, among other locations.

In the one year since Jan. 6, more than 725 individuals have been arrested in nearly all 50 states for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol, including over 225 individuals charged with assaulting or impeding law enforcement. The investigation remains ongoing.

An indictment is merely an allegation, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.


IL-11: Catalina Lauf Advisor Alex Bruesewitz Contacted by U.S. House Select Committee Investigating January 6, 2021 — 10 Comments

  1. Too little, too late for crybaby Kingstinker and the J6 Committe Commies.
    This ain’t gonna stop the 2024 Trump train,
    or the 2022 DEMOCRAT ass whipping on the horizon either.

  2. Biden/Nancy needed a Sedition so their Justice Department made one happen, so now the 1-6 Commission can feel like they are needed. That’s why that lying AG was turned down for SCOTUS, he flat out lied about turning parents at school into Domestic terrorists for protecting their children.

  3. Good to remember that the Acting US Attorney in Boston who ran Whitey Bulger as a ”top-echelon informant” against the rival Italian Mafia was none other that our old pal Robert Mueller of Russiagate infamy. FBI agent John Connolly was set up to take the rap for that fiasco. Connolly was influenced not to take the stand in his own defense at his trial, although for years he said he looked forward to setting the record straight about the Bulger affair. It has been long suspected that the corruption in Federal law enforcement in Boston went right to the top. The House Government Reform Committee, under the chairmanship of Congressman Dan Burton (R-IN), investigated the Boston FBI scandal for two full years. When Burton tried to acquire official records on the case from the Justice Department, he was stonewalled, and Attorney General John Ashcroft persuaded President George W. Bush to invoke “executive privilege” to block the committee’s subpoenas. This was President Bush’s first, and only, use of executive privilege to withhold information from the Congress. Some think Bush did this specifically to protect Mueller, who had by then risen to be the Director of the FBI.

  4. Those damn Oath Keepers and their leadership. Ray Epps anyone. Nope, not a leader in that organization or an instigator in the J6 false flag. On the most wanted list and then taken off by the FBI.


    Damn, I’m glad I use Duck Duck Go for my truth. The hopium and cognitive dissonance is priceless.

    From article: “The story of the mystery man, Ray Epps, featured in Rep. Massie’s video above is in fact far more shocking than even the good Congressman implies in the hearing. It’s a story so strange, and so scandalous at every turn, that it threatens to shatter the entire official narrative of the “Capitol Breach” and expose yet another dimension of proactive federal involvement in the so-called “insurrection” of January 6th.”


    Trump is not going to endorse anyone from this shithole state. Being a RINO does not make one a Conservative Ms. Lauf. If Trump does, bring out the beat downs. There’s not a shortage of angry folk on this blog. LOL.

  5. First- Extremely, extremely difficult to get onto this website. The bred winner easily goes to various websites without difficulty every day. When will Cal and Lopez fix up this mess?

    Tired of seeing stuff about Lauf. In spite of much publicity have not seen anything about her accomplishments nor substantial info on her positions. Why should/would anybody vote for her? Now, if she were at least a wife of an elected politician, that might just be a very minimum reason to vote for her. Just like Hillary Rodman Clinton.

  6. Trump endorsed candidates from Illinois in recent elections and he has already endorsed Mary Miller in the upcoming primary.

  7. The server for this website really blows. Fix it Cal, or soon you’ll just have fags like Nefarious and ziozombies like Uber Jew.
