    Trump's DC hotel is hiking prices for March 4, the day QAnon followers think the former president will be sworn in



    QAnon's most dedicated followers still believe that former President Donald Trump will soon be sworn in.

    They insist that Trump will return to power and be inaugurated in Washington, DC, on March 4.

    Coincidentally, the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, has hiked the prices of suites around that day. Some room rates at the hotel, just blocks from the White House, have almost tripled for March 3 and 4, Forbes' Suzanne Rowan Kelleher reported.

    The 'sovereign citizen' movement
    The importance of March 4 for QAnon supporters is rooted in the bizarre beliefs of the "sovereign citizen" movement.

    The basis for that conspiracy theory is that a law enacted in 1871 secretly turned the US into a corporation. It posits that some Americans are therefore not subject to a variety of federal laws.

    Supporters of the theory believe that every president who's been inaugurated since then is illegitimate; they believe that Ulysses S. Grant was the last legitimate president.

    Grant, like other presidents in the 19th century, was inaugurated on March 4. The sovereign-citizen movement posits that the republic will be restored and that Trump will become the US's 19th president on March 4, 2021.

    This fantasy has gained traction with the hardcore QAnon adherents trying to make sense of President Joe Biden's recent inauguration, Vice reported.

    And March 4 appears to have become a marketing opportunity for Trump's hotel.

    While a deluxe-king room would usually cost $476 to $596 around March, the price for March 3 and 4 this year was $1,331 per night, Forbes reported.

    The price hike appeared to be exclusive to the Trump International Hotel, Forbes said, citing Zach Everson's 1100 Pennsylvania newsletter. Other luxury hotels around the White House appeared to have standard rates for March 3 and 4, Everson said.

    The Trump International Hotel did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment for this story.

    This would not be the first time that a Trump hotel had raised its rates to coincide with a political event.

    On January 5 and 6, Trump International raised its rates significantly. On the night of the deadly insurrection at the Capitol, the cheapest room was about $8,000, Forbes reported.

    On January 7, the hotel's managing director said the in-room-dining team had "record breaking numbers" that week.

    Notice how the only one wearing a mask is the one that's next to her. Classic "law for thee but not or me" politician.

    The black (-faced) sheep in the flock, so to speak.

    I give her an “A”. The rest flunk the basic hygiene course.

    Jenna Ryan, a Texas real-estate agent charged in the Capitol insurrection, says she 'bought into a lie' and regrets 'everything'

    Jenna Ryan, a Texas real-estate agent who infamously took a private jet to Washington, DC, to attend what turned into the riot at the US Capitol and who has since been criminally charged over the insurrection, now says she is embarrassed by her actions and regrets "everything."

    On January 15, Ryan was arrested and charged with two federal misdemeanor counts of knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted government building without lawful authority and disorderly conduct.

    Ryan told The Washington Post she felt abandoned by the group of "patriots" who she said she came to the nation's capital to support.

    "I bought into a lie, and the lie is the lie, and it's embarrassing," she said. "I regret everything."

    As the FBI outlined in an affidavit, Ryan's participation in the riot was well documented on social media. Video footage from the event showed Ryan in the crowd that breached the Capitol wearing a "Trump" beanie hat. She also promoted her real-estate business, with her full name, to one of the many cameras rolling at the event.

    Ryan also posed for a photo next to a broken window at the Capitol with a peace hand signal, according to the affidavit, captioning the photo on Twitter: "window at The capital. And if the news doesn't stop lying about us we're going to come after their studios next."

    After the attack, she also bragged on Twitter: "We just stormed the Capital. It was one of the best days of my life."

    Ryan told The Post that she didn't come to Washington, DC, to storm the Capitol but got swept up in the action when her group saw then-President Donald Trump on TV at their hotel telling his supporters to "fight like hell." Trump is now facing his second Senate impeachment trial on a charge of inciting the January 6 insurrection.

    Two other people who rode on the same private jet with Ryan were charged on February 5.

    Through an analysis of court records and public documents, The Post found that that almost 60% of those charged so far - for whom there is publicly available financial information - had experienced financial difficulties, including bankruptcies, foreclosures, unpaid taxes, and significant debt.

    The Post said Ryan was among the suspects who had experienced "financial problems" and fell down a rabbit hole of right-wing media and the QAnon conspiracy theory.


    Ryan, who lives in Frisco, Texas, and practices real estate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, was also barred from PayPal after she attempted to raise funds for her legal defense on the platform.

    She was also one of the many suspects in the Capitol riot who were disappointed when Trump declined to pardon anyone charged in the insurrection.

    "Not one patriot is standing up for me," Ryan told The Post. "I'm a complete villain. I was down there based on what my president said: 'Stop the steal.' Now I see that it was all over nothing. He was just having us down there for an ego boost. I was there for him."

    They will hopefully have a lengthy prison sentence to truly reflect on their regret. Commit treason and sedition, you get locked up. In this case it fits, as Trump would say "lock her up".

    I think the people who broke the law should face a trial. If they didn't do anything violent then they should be fined and let go (but I believe that about all non-violent offenses).

    That said, just curious, do you think Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning should be locked up for treason? I saw a debate recently and was surprised how many liberal people felt they needed to be locked up.

    I mean it's a tough one because I see both sides.

    If someone gets murdered and you're there too but didn't participate in the actual murder, should you be fined and let go?
