Active Club founder Rob Rundo Released

Post by Trenton » Wed Feb 21, 2024 4:22 pm

The presiding judge commented that prosecutors had not charged arrested Antifa rioters who were present at the 2017 RAM (Rise Above Movement) rally in California for which Rundo had been charged. Rob Rundo is back on the streets, organizing, even as prosecutors continue to file appeals.

Never heard of Mr. Rundo or about what he organizes.

To tell you the truth, I don’t know much about him either. He’s the founder of the Active Club movement, which is a coalition of local clubs that lift weights and hold rallies. As an aside, Rundo is due to be taken back into custody by order of another court, so this all amounts to very little, other than showcasing that even a settled verdict can be overturned if the result is found to be politically incorrect, such as by a White leader walking free. Then again, if anyone didn’t know that already, I doubt this will be enough to convince them.

I found out what's going on with Robert Rondo, according to Jew-owned ABC news, with its likely Jew reporters, quoting the Jew hate group ADL about "combat-ready, militant group of a new nationalist white supremacy and identity movement," a "coalition of local weight-lifting clubs," below.

He's like many others who got caught up in the Charlottesville fiasco and are still caught up in it. He shouldn't expect much legal relief from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Pardon the simplistic analogy, but I see Rondo as a single injured tree. We in the Alliance should stay focused on the forest, the big picture, instead of on the problems of an individual, thoroughly defunctionalized tree who got himself in trouble six and 1/2 years ago. Doing that takes away our necessary focus.

Our Alliance celebrates its 50th anniversary this week by focusing on what is important rather that what some misguided coalition of weight-lifting clubs consider important.


Circuit court blocks judge's decision
to release white supremacist for
being 'selectively prosecuted'

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued the emergency stay Thursday.

A federal appeals court panel on Thursday moved to stay a district judge's order that cleared the release of an alleged leader of a white supremacist organization who had previously fled the U.S. to evade prosecution.

Robert Rundo, the alleged leader of the white supremacist 'Rise Above Movement,' was released from prison in Orange County Wednesday, before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued their temporary stay. The U.S. Attorney's Office in the Central District of California confirmed Thursday night that Rundo had been taken into custody.

"Rundo was released from custody at some point yesterday evening. As you may have seen, we petitioned the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to stay the release order, which was granted this morning. Rundo was taken into custody this evening by the FBI," read a statement from the office.

U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney had earlier dismissed charges against Rundo and a co-defendant, Robert Boman, both of whom were charged in 2018 with conspiracy to violate the Anti-Riot Act, and rioting, for their role in alleged attacks on counter-protesters at political rallies in 2017.

In an extraordinary ruling Wednesday, Carney argued that Rundo and Boman had shown they were "selectively prosecuted" in comparison with members of far-left groups like Antifa, who also physically assaulted supporters of former President Trump at some of the rallies but were not charged with the same crimes.

"By many accounts, members of Antifa and related far-left groups engaged in worse conduct and in fact instigated much of the violence that broke out at these otherwise constitutionally protected rallies to silence the protected speech of the supporters of President Trump," Judge Carney wrote in his opinion. "That is constitutionally impermissible...prosecuting only members of the far right and ignoring members of the far left leads to the troubling conclusion that the government believes it is permissible to physically assault and injure Trump supporters to silence speech."

Carney noted in his opinion that others had argued that the far-left groups "engaged in worse conduct and instigated much of the violence."

"The government cannot prosecute R.A.M. members such as Defendants while ignoring the violence of members of Antifa and related far-left groups because RAM engaged in what the government and many believe is more offensive speech," Carney wrote, referring to the Rise Above Movement, of which Rundo and Boman were members. Prosecutors have described the Rise Above Movement as a "combat-ready, militant group of a new nationalist white supremacy and identity movement" in a federal indictment.

Carney also rejected a request by prosecutors to stay his order releasing Rundo from custody, ignoring their pleas that he presented a "grave risk of flight" as well as a danger to the community.

Boman had already been released on bond when the charges were dropped, while Rundo remained in custody.
