ONN – Trump Capitol Rally Jan 6th Funded By Julie Jenkins Fancelli Publix Super Markets Heiress, Says WSJ – vlog by Zennie62 YouTube
The Wall Street Journal is pointing the finger of who financed the Trump Terrorist Rally that led to the insurrection attempt January 6th, at Julie Jenkins Fancelli, heiress to the Publix Super Market chain (As a note, Publix Super Market does not have stores in Oakland, or California, and is concentrated in the Southeastern United States.)
The blockbuster report says that Fancelli committed $300,000 and that paid for most of the $500,000 cost of the event.
Julie Jenkins Fancelli From Jenkins Family, One Of America’s Richest Families Worth $8.8 Billion
According to Forbes, Julie Jenkins Fancelli is part of the family lead by George Jenkins (who passed away in 1996) that built and owns part of Florida-based Publix Super Markets, which operates more than 1,200 grocery stores across the Southeastern United States. She does not currently serve on the Board of Directors of Publix.
Corporate Wiki reports that:
Julia Jenkins Fancelli has been associated with six companies, according to public records. The companies were formed over a sixteen year period with the most recent being incorporated sixteen years ago in February of 2004.
In August 9th, 2019, Broward Palm Beach reported that “Publix Heirs Are Maxing Out Donations to Donald Trump’s 2020 Campaign”, and that “According to FEC (Federal Elections Commission) records, three of Jenkins’ heirs, who sit on the board of the nonprofit George Jenkins Foundation, have funneled max contributions to Trump this year: Jenkins’ daughter Julia Jenkins Fancelli and his grandchildren Gregory Fancelli and Leslie Fancelli Sonatori.”
The 2019 Broward Palm Beach report continues:
A Publix spokesperson did not immediately respond to a message from New Times yesterday, but it does not appear the Fancelli family is directly involved in day-to-day Publix operations. But that was not always the case: For decades, Publix Super Markets routinely purchased food from Alma Food Imports Inc., which Julia Jenkins Fancelli appears to have owned for decades. In 1996, the South Florida Sun Sentinel noted Publix was forced to disclose to the government that it was funneling a lot of money to companies owned by or connected with Jenkins family members — including, at the time, $1.7 million to Alma Foods.
Fast-forward about two decades, and the company was still purchasing from Alma. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings from 2017 and 2018 show Publix was still buying products from Alma until Fancelli exited the company in August of that year.
“From January through April 2017, the Company purchased approximately $245,000 of food products from Alma Food Imports, Inc., a company owned by Julia Jenkins Fancelli,” a 2018 SEC proxy statement reads.
UPDATE: the Federal Elections Commission website has “Julia Fancelli” as giving $500,000 to the superpac America First Action on October 27th, 2020.
Ballotopidia reports that America First Action “is a super PAC dedicated to supporting federal candidates who back the policy agenda of President Donald Trump (R). The organization was founded in April 2017 and is affiliated with the 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization America First Policies.” CNBC reports that America First Action raised $42 million in September 2020, and “Some of the top donors included the chairman of Marvel Entertainment, Ike Perlmutter, and his wife, Laura. The two combined to give $21 million to the committee. Republican megadonor Timothy Mellon gave $10 million. Trish Duggan, a Florida-based benefactor to Scientology, gave $2 million. Billionaire Diane Hendricks gave another $2 million.”
If America First Action reads familiar, it’s because the firm is also linked to the Ukraine Scandal that ultimately led to now-former President Trump’s first impeachment. In 2019 ProPublica wrote “Randy Perkins donated $500,000 to America First Action, a pro-Trump super PAC, a day after his company won federal money as part of a contract. The same PAC was dubbed “Committee 1” in a federal indictment alleging illegal donations from two (Trump personal lawyer and former Mayor of New York City) Rudy Giuliani associates.”
Alex Jones Took The $300,000 From Julia Jenkins Fancelli To Help Produce The Trump Rally
Alex Jones was said to have asked Ms. Fancelli for the money; other sources claim Ms. Fancelli somehow approached Mr. Jones. Jones then added $50,000, which paid for his speaking platform. The political vlogger also helped organize and publicize the event that ultimately led to the deaths of five people, and many injured, including some Senators and Congressional representatives, who sustained damage to their offices, as well.
Also, then President Donald Trump himself helped tell the public about the January 6th event, saying it would be “wild” – that, in addition to his words inciting the crowd to storm The Capitol. That, even as a Trump campaign representative told the Wall Street Journal that it had no role in financing or organizing the rally held at the Ellipse in Washington D.C.
