Easter “parade” 2021 outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral NYC

April 4, 2021. Easter Revelers gathered on Fifth Avenue outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Some dressed with ‘face diapers’ …. others, like Mr Rabbit, came fully masked.

All trying to recapture the fun of New York City’s famous Easter Parade, without an actual parade (aka promenade) up and down the avenue. (see the 2012 picture and follow links from past years [2012-  Part 1 ] [2012 – Part 2] and (2015 ) for Easter Past good times .

These Happy Days are not the same.

The Plandemic of 202o-21 rolls on, with no end in sight.

Though one religiously costumed fellow stood at the doors to the cathedral, he stood alone since most costumes favored Spring and The Bunny.

Perhaps because fear of death by Covid and the “New Normal” prevailed, nostalgia, yearning for a time when women dressed with style and people socialized, was popular.

Passersby had a small but colorful eye-fest.


And some, it seems, even got an Easter Egg.

Easter 2020 was locked down. Easter 2021 was roped in by relentless restrictions with no closing of the avenue, no promenade. (Flickr slide show next)

Guess the vaccine did NOT spring-wide the prison door. (Will the panic never end?)

Trump Appreciation Rally Wollman Rink Central Park

April 4, 2021. Easter Sunday. TDS Cancel Culture ended the Trump Organization’s contract on the very successful Wollman Rink in Central Park. Their reason, though unstated: Trump Derangement Syndrome.

“The cancellation of the Trump Organization’s contracts to operate Wollman Rink, Lasker Rink, and the Central Park Carousel would go into effect in February. The city later decided to retain the Trump Organization as the rinks’ operator for the duration of the skating season.”

The Trump 2024 Banner was very popular with passersby. Very few grumbles from those on the left on this lovely day in the park.

St Paddy’s Day 2021 March and “Trump 2024” Flag Drop

 March 17, 2021 – NYC City Hall- 2 pm-Chambers and Bdway
Pro-Trump supporters gathered for a MAGA “St Patrick’s Day Parade” – aka St Paddy’s Day

Fun for all, until an unexplained “fist-fight” broke out.

Things calmed down quickly

And the massive flag was unfurled in the middle of Broadway.

The “Trump 2024” patriots  marched down Broadway to Bowling Green where they stopped in front of the American Indian Museum.

During the marchers were followed by a few harmless hecklers.

This green condom-adorned creature was annoyingly hard to shake.

And one pushy heckler managed to block the flag – briefly. Once again, all was handled, quickly and peacefully.

There were so many police, nothing became unmanageable.

Lastly, as we came to the end of the island, some fun lower Manhattan history.

Exchange Alley (Caught my eye because it’s an unusual covered street/alley)

 

 

.At a width of just 25 feet total, Exchange Alley is the thinnest street in Manhattan that is open to vehicular traffic. It runs one block between Broadway and Trinity Place (above), and appears as a thin crack between #61 Broadway, the former Adams Exchange Building (constructed from 1912-1914, left) and One Exchange Plaza, a brick and glass tower built from 1982-1984. Trinity Place was one of the first streets laid out in Lower Manhattan beyond the city wall and was originally called Lumber Street until it was renamed in 1846.Both Exchange Alley and its eastern continuation, the rather wider Exchange Place, go back all the way to the Dutch era. Most of it was called Tuyn Street and its later English translation, Garden Street, but Exchange Alley, during the era of British occupation, had a somewhat more colorful name: Oyster Pasty Alley.

The American Indian Museum, sits at the south end of Bowling Green/Evacuation Day Park.

Evacuation Day Park 1783 (Bowling Green) sits just south of the Wall Street Bull (aka Charging Bull, Bowling Green Bull)

Throughout the course of New York’s nearly 400-year history, Bowling Green has seen its fair share of historic events. As the city’s oldest public park, it’s been repurposed several times over the years, serving not only as council grounds for Native American tribes, but also as a parade field, a cattle market and an actual bowling green for lawn bowling.

Pass the ERA NOW: Women of the Revolution Lead the Way in Washington Sq

March 7, 2021. Rise and Resist hosted a protest in support of the ERA, claiming women and trans have NO equality protection. “It’s way past time to add the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Next day, Monday, March 8th,  was International Women’s Day.

March is Women’s History Month. (but, only certain women need apply)

The revolutionists claim women are not protected by the U.S. Constitution.

Video Part 1.  2nd speaker is Cathy Marino-Thomas of Equality NY.

.From the Facebook Event page:

“Join Rise and Resist as we march to recognize International Women’s Day, honor women leaders, and demand the Equal Rights Amendment (E.R.A.) FINALLY be added to the U.S. Constitution.

FEATURED SPEAKERS and PERFORMANCES
– Donna Lieberman, NYCLU Executive Director
– TS Candii, Founder of Black Trans Nation and Black Trans Nation NY
– Pamela Sneed, Poet and Activist
– Fogo Azul NY, All-women Brazilian Samba Reggae Drum Line

ACTION DETAILS
In solidarity with this year’s theme for International Women’s Day, we celebrate women’s leadership. Women were on the front lines in the pandemic and we suffered the greatest losses, especially job losses.

The Equal Rights Amendment, first introduced in 1923, has been ratified by the necessary 38 states and should come up in the Senate during the Biden Administration. The ERA would help guarantee our rights to equal pay, equal access to work, reproductive freedom, child care, health care, LGBTQ rights, freedom from sexual violence, and more.

The amendment says, simply, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.

That’s it. And though other laws, both state and federal, do forbid discrimination, women’s rights are constantly chipped away by courts and legislators. Without a Constitutional ERA, a judge may—and many do—interpret federal or state law through their own values and biases around gender and sexuality.It’s time to add the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”

BLM graffiti is still on Fifth – the mayor has cleaned it up – again.

There were LOTS of police this time, on bikes and walking.

As the flag was unfurled, a colorful protestor climbed under the flag – but not for long …

She was forced out.

Mayor deBlasio’s Folly: Shutdown Wollman Rink in Central Park

Feb. 21, 2021.  Central Park. The closing of Wollman Rink by Mayor deBlasio  was scheduled this day, included terminating all four Trump Organization contracts: the Central Park Carousel, Wollman and Lasker skating rinks and the Ferry Point Golf Course. He could have let them stay open thru the end of the season. The park, the rink are full.  But, de Blasio’s Trump Deranged Syndrome (TDS) knows no bounds.

Meanwhile, patriot Dion Cini set out to fly his Trump 2024 banner around the rink before its closure. However, I couldn’t find the rink. I always get lost in the park, even with google and a compass. Thankful that scootercaster caught Dion in action – as well as the assault on him by rink employees.

Video by Daniel Valls FNTV freedomnews.tv@ScooterCasterNY

I arrived after the action, but still enjoyed the packed rink.  Frustrating though. How can de Blasio be allowed to take down the rink?

After enjoying the skaters, I came upon a ballet class using the Wollman fence for barre. Fun.

As I left the park, I saw more happy kids (large and small) …

and  … happy squirrels …. all playing in the snow in the park.

Then: Good News. ‘DeBozo’ caved! The rink will now stay open through the end of the season. Interesting facts in this Eyewitness News archive video re the rink’s origins under Trump. It was a major gift to the city.  But instead of thanks, our President is to be PUNISHED by de Blasio for a job well done.

The mayor will still end the Trump Organization’s four management contracts with a “FU Trump”.

 No good dead goes unpunished.
And the People be Damned.

Live From New York: Yad Yamin co-hosts NBC Protest

Feb 27, 2021 Outside 30 Rock/NBC.  Yad Yamin and others joined with Dov Hikind to denounce the shamefully blatant anti-Semitism coming out of NBC.

The world is on lock down thanks to the “plandemic”. Sadly, as tyranny takes wing, is this part of our “New Normal”: open season on Jew Hatred at NBC.

Protestors like Yad Yamin and others, along with Dov Hikind, were there to denounce NBC; to challenge this egregious anti-Semitism . (See Flickr Slide Show)

IMG_5481

.Video 1 : Dov Hikind speaks to the press

Video 2 : The protestors gathered to make an impression on NBC (we hope).

The message conveyed to the media was a success. However, anti-Semitism has a low priority for the media-honchos so they drag their feet on the reportage.

“Never Again” is a powerful message so hopefully these racists can be ‘woke’ one protest at a time. March on. March on.

NY Young Republicans Re-Occupy Wall Street: Let the People Trade!

Ted Cruz – We shouldn’t have one rule for rich hedge funds in Manhattan and a different set of rules for every other American.

January 31. 2021. Noon. A small crowd braved the bitter cold in Zuccotti Park, scene of the once infamous Occupy Wall Street encampment of 2011 (2011 Flickr Link).

Today the NYC Young Republican Club was out to RE-Occupy Zuccotti, demanding that The People be allowed to trade.

The group is co-opting the Occupy name to push populist policies in light of the GameStop short selling fiasco.

“Wall Street hedge fund hypocrites, “corporate oligarchs”  are “screwing the little people”. One more assault on our economy as the world according to Biden and the CCP communists continues to spiral.” [NY Post]

This whole mess with #WallStreet is about to make people on BOTH the Left and Right realize we have found the new class of “robber barons”—hedge fund managers.

The main speaker of the event was Curtis Sliwa, leader of the Guardian Angels and candidate for Mayor of New York.

Sliwa challenged the crowd with, “They screwed the little people once, let’s get these hedge-fund monsters before they get us.”

He also called-out the hypocritical Wall Street bankers who took billions of dollars in tax-funded bailouts in 2008, only to now cry foul.

Just before the presser began, this fellow started shouting at the crowd – particularly about the CCP. (very short video)

According to the Young Republicans, Sunday’s protest wasn’t about political affiliations — they dubbed it a non-partisan event.

“There’s two standards, Wax said in a speech to protesters,  “There’s rules for thee, not for me. You got these big hedge-fund guys who are trying to short companies into the ground, and then they got called on their bluff by a bunch of anonymous day traders on Reddit.”

Gavin Wax video –

They want us to bail them out, they want Janet Yellen to make phone calls for them, they want to shut down trading. Are you kidding me? These schmucks in Wall Street or Greenwich can do whatever the hell they want to do with no repercussions.”  Gavin Wax at @NYYRC rally

He then introduced, Viswanag B. Burra – Vice President New York Young Republican Club [ video ]

A published statement, from their President, Gavin Wax (@GavinWax)

“Fellow patriots,

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow, Sunday, January 31, at 12:00 pm as we gather in Zuccotti Park to RE-OCCUPY WALL STREET.

Over the past few days, we have seen how corporate oligarchs who work in connection with key members of the Biden administration have corrupted the integrity of our financial markets in a blatant manner by directing retail brokerages to freeze trading for small investors while institutional investors operate unimpeded.

As rumors percolate that the SEC may attempt to unwind trades in certain companies conducted over the past few days, our protest to LET THE PEOPLE TRADE becomes ever more critical.

And remember: unlike the original “Occupiers,” we will assemble peaceably and in accordance with civilized standards of decorum. No shitting in the streets.”

Gavin Wax, President
New York Young Republican Club [https://nyyrc.com/

Reports from NY Post and Breitbart:

[Breitbart]

“Members of the New York Young Republicans staged a “Re-Occupy Wall Street” demonstration Sunday over the financial sector’s manipulation of GameStop stock after a Reddit group launched a buying surge.

GameStop, a mall retailer of video games and electronic accessories, saw shares soar more than 1,700 percent this week when amateur day traders bought massive amounts of the stock to protest Wall Street short-sellers who were banking on GameStop’s failure.

It was co-ordinated. There needs to be repercussions,” Wax said of the institutions’ efforts to shut down amateur trading.

The Reddit page WallStreetBets initially organized the mass buy.

As the stock skyrocketed and hedge funds lost billions of dollars, trading apps tried to block additional sales of the stock. One of the apps, RobinHood, faces a class-action lawsuit.”

[NY Post] [NY Post 2]

“Dozens of members of the New York Young Republicans Club jumped on the anti-Wall Street bandwagon Sunday, gathering in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park to blast the hedge-fund managers targeting GameStop.

The “Re-Occupy Wall Street” protesters ripped the big-money investors as “despicable” for moving to stop last week’s “little guy” Reddit-fueled run on the video-game-seller’s stock to shore it up after the money men bet on it tanking.

“There’s some blatant corruption going on in the buildings around us and in Greenwich, [Ct.], wherever hell they are,” Gavin Wax, the group’s president, told about 50 protesters.”
