Stand For Choice from Columbus Cir to Union Sq: No to Vaccine/Mask /Passport Mandates

August 28, 2021. 1 pm. Columbus Circle. Stand for Choice Rally.

The crowd, as I waited for the rally to start, was an odd assortment of East Village-types caught in a time warp, as well as some familiar leftists. The Covid-scam has united this eclectic group in common-cause: the Human Right to CHOOSE.

This statement from “Occupy Peace”: “We the People pay w/ our tax $ to enrich the Military-Industrial Complex proclaims under the heading,  OCCUPY FREEDOM, “Just as politicians have violated the Constitution by taking us to war, they have robbed us of our Liberty and Freedom with draconian rules and regulations ranging from constant surveillance, right to assembly, lock downs, and violations of our personal rights. We propose Direct Democracy: let the people decide our fate and future and not the politicians.”

.Seems they too are resisting the Big Gov. Global Plandemic Reset. The looming lock down of our country with permanent passports, mandates and never ending boosters threatens even our hard core lefty/progs is creating this odd communing I saw gathered.

.Took a few pictures at the protest. But, since they seemed in no hurry to start the rally, I moved on.

Stand For Choice Rally NYC
(Okay. Maybe I was too impatient) After the speakers, at 1:40 in the video below, they marched thru the streets of midtown. [https://rumble.com/vluvof-stand-for-choice-rally-nyc-columbus-circle-8282021.html]

.Interesting change of intent coming from the FDA : Health officials warned the White House they might not recommend COVID vaccine booster shots for the general public as expected this month.

“On Sept. 17, the FDA’s outside advisory committee is due to publicly review Pfizer’s data supporting a booster shot. Pfizer is asking for approval on booster doses for people 16 and older, but at least one prominent member of the FDA panel who works at a children’s hospital in Pennsylvania has called the request premature. There is no compelling reason to get a third dose” now, Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, told The Times.” [NY Daily News]

 

Yet Fauci continues to CONFUSE: “Dr. Fauci, the president’s top medical adviser, told the nation that normalcy won’t come before Fall or Winter 2022 — then corrected it to a still-absurd Spring 2022…How much of the population, he was  asked, needs to be jabbed to meet that goal of normalcy by Spring 2022? The reply: “In all transparency and honesty, we don’t know that.” Fauci is basing supposedly scientific statements on pure conjecture.” [NY Post]

Fauci LIES while Freedom DIES.
“Get this guy off TV — and out of the White House!”

 Sept. 6, 2021. The same group, Stand For Choice/ Stop the Lock Downs, gathered at 1 PM  in Union Square.

These small protests may seem pointless but the commitment of those involved is unflagging. They  talk to passers by, sharing their concerns and facts regarding the damage caused by mandates and lock downs. (StopTheLockdown.net).

As the media continues to nurture Fauci-mania, we now read of a doctor refusing to treat the unvaccinated, a shocking violation of their oath as doctors “to do no harm”. The harm done by our governments world-wide continues.

.Sadly, the madness is pervasive. Know your Rights. Stand For CHOICE. Stop the Mandates.

End Jew Hatred challenges ‘pali’ Die-in Lies at Grand Central NYC

August 29, 2021. 4:00 pm. Israel Proud. Speak Out FOR Israel!

There was a protest in Grand Central Terminal promoting Intifada & anti-Semitic rhetoric. Time for this to stop being a one-way conversation!

The counter-protest was hosted by End Jew Hatred, AFSI/Americans For A Safe Israel and Yad Yamin – New York

“Israel is the only country in the Middle East that assists other countries when in crisis. Whether it is the Israeli government, IsraAid or other Israeli organizations, Israel is there. Water, food, electricity, medical aid, assistance with repairing housing…Israel is there!

The media & other entities ignore this. Instead they continue to portray Israel as racist, murderers and aggressors.

Because of their constant mis-portrayal and indoctrination of the public, attacks against Jews continue to rise. NYC is ground zero for attacks against Jews. 

The lies must stop! The public must see the truth.
Silence is NOT an option.
Time to stop the promotion of Jew hatred!”

August 29, 4:30 pm . Pro-palestine activists gathered at Grand Central Terminal to demand the Israeli “occupation” authorities return bodies of palestinian “martyrs” that they claim are withheld by the “occupation” authorities … in support of palestinian human rights …

#ReturnOurChildren!

Flickr Slide show Part 2- A protest promoting Intifada & anti-Semitic rhetoric, marked by their “National Day for the Recovery of ‘palestinian‘ and other Arab War ‘victims’ bodies” and the “Disclosure of the Fate of the Missing”. These anti-Israel lies must stop!

IMG_8048

The pro-palestine activists organized the rally as palestinian families and human rights defenders marked the “National Day for the Recovery of palestinian and other Arab War Victims’ Bodies” and the “Disclosure of the Fate of the Missing” (on August 27, an annual observance).

Adalah claims, “No country in the world allows itself to hold and use bodies as a political bargaining chip, in violation of international humanitarian law (IHL), international human rights law, the UN Convention against Torture, which absolutely prohibits cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment,” [QuedsNen.co]

According to the organizers of the rally, their aim was to stand against the “ongoing genocide of the palestinian people, to honor the “martyrs” whose lives are taken on a daily basis.

Israel Pride says NO MORE LIES. End Jew Hatred.
Time for this to stop being a one-way conversation!

Jan 6 Political Prisoners of Biden Admin File Formal Complaint w/ UN Human Rights Committee

At noon on Aug. 27, 2021, outside the United Nations in New York City, Look Ahead America (LAA)and Citizens Against Political Persecution (CAPP) announced they will present a joint letter to the United Nations Human Rights Committee to investigate and demand relief for the Biden Administration’s January 6 political prisoners.

Speaking,  Matt Braynard, Executive Director of Look Ahead America and Cara Castronuova, Founder of Citizens Against Political Persecution (CAPP) regarding their  Formal Complaint. They are demanding sanctions against key Biden Administration Officials.

From the complaint:

“Today I write in support of basic human rights for a specific group of Americans who have been disparately and inhumanely treated by their government – singled out, imprisoned, and even physically abused – because of their political beliefs. As outlined herein, LAA has sought relief from several members of the United States government, as well as other U.S.-based human rights advocacy groups. We have been largely ignored, and human rights violations continue unabated, with no relief in sight. Those avenues exhausted, and in recognition of the United Nations’ long and prestigious history of human rights advocacy, we ask for your review and consideration of these prisoners’ plight.”

Matt Braynard, Executive Director of Look Ahead America, made the following statement:

“Not only do we urge the United Nations to investigate this abuse of human rights, but we ask that other governments hold US officials to the same standards US officials have held others around the world. Just as the US government has imposed sanctions on foreign leaders whom they allege have fallen short of international norms, we urge government around the world to impose travel restrictions and financial penalties against President Biden, Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and other US government officials who involved in this gross violation of human rights.”

Cara Castronuova, Executive Director of Citizens Against Political Persecution, made the following statement:

“We here at Citizens Against Political Persecution have been fighting for the January 6th detainees for months now. The government continues to unconstitutionally detain our fellow American citizens and we feel that submitting this letter to the United Nations is the next logical step towards justice. Hopefully the United Nations hears our plea, as we are the voices of the unheard political prisoners right now who are not able to speak for themselves.”

.Organized Labor in New York Opposes COVID Vaccine Mandates. Read HERE

Rachel Maniscalco is a teacher resigning from the UFT (United Federation of Teachers). She supports medical freedom: CHOICE  [teachersforchoice.org]

Michael Kane, one of many founders of the group said,“Our official position is that people should be able to make their own choices regarding masks and vaccines. We have teachers who don’t want to be vaccinated and the UFT is trying to force them.” He announced that he too is leaving the New York City Teachers Union (UFT)

“As many of you know I publicly announced I am leaving my union, the UFT … Leaving the union does not mean I am leaving my NYC DOE job … It just means I will no longer be paying union dues to the UFT while I teach in NYC.

The United States Supreme Court has ruled I cannot be compelled to pay any union dues or fees as a condition of my employment.  As of this date, I revoke any dues deduction authorization that I may have signed and no longer authorize the deduction of any union dues or fees from my paycheck.

The President of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Randi Weingarten was on the record that she supported forcing teachers to get the COVID vaccine to keep our jobs. Thankfully due to pressure fron TEACHERS FOR CHOICE she reversed those comments. We cannot stop fighting!”

Mary Holland – President, Legal Counsel for Children’s Health Defense. She supports medical freedom. Freedom of Choice. Opposes Vaccine Mandates and Passports.  She has testified to retain or expand vaccination exemptions in the California, West Virginia, Maine and Vermont legislatures and written several law review articles and blog posts on vaccine law and policy. She is the co-author and co-editor of the books “Vaccine Epidemic” and “HPV Vaccine on Trial: Seeking Justice for a Generation Betrayed.

Dancer Heather Berman spoke passionately about what forced vaccines has meant for her and other performers – the entertainment unions and producer mandates –   [https://www.linkedin.com/in/heatherberman]

“Throughout the pandemic, American political and public-health leaders have been following Rahm Emanuel’s classic dictum for power-seeking officials: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” Now they’ve adopted a corollary: You never want a crisis to end.

It does NONE of the above.
Which is why Freedom of CHOICE is so imperative.

”Union leaders representing 350,000 city workers plan to file a legal action to stop Mayor de Blasio from implementing a vaccine mandate for Department of Education employees without their input. From Harry Nespoli, chair of the Municipal Labor Committee: his group is filing an unfair labor practices complaint over the new directive.” [https://nypost.com/2021/08/23/union-leaders-taking-de-blasios-doe-vaccine-mandate-to-court/]

For some leaving the union becomes a necessary CHOICE. (Updates on leaving the union)

“Leaving the union is actually simple and is merely a letter you will write and send to the NYC DOE and the UFT. We will have a template of a letter for you with all info on where to send it. You lose absolutely none of your benefits if you leave the union. You do not lose any medical benefits nor any of your welfare fund benefits (glasses, prescription drugs, etc…) You do lose representation from your union, you cannot attend union meetings and you will likely get a stank eye from your chapter leader in your school building. I know of at least 2 chapter leaders who are ready to leave the UFT.”

Rally to Support Israel’s Right To Defend Against Terror at WTC7

May 23, 2021. NYC Lower Manhattan – WTC 7. “Stand with Israel. Unite Against Terror“. (apologies for late post)

”IAC officials plan to lay blue and white flowers – showing Israel’s national colors – at the World Trade Center memorial, and to march from the site to the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in nearby Battery Park afterward, creating a powerful symbol linking the destruction of European Jewry to contemporary efforts to target Jews and other innocent victims.”

There was much joy amongst those who gathered in support of Israel. Families with children were able to stay this time (no fear of marauding ‘palis’- see LINK)

You could tell even the NYPD was relaxed – as long as the ‘fakestinians’ stayed away (which they did)

The only opposition a very small group of Neturei Karta (NKUSA.org)

Unfortunately, music was blasted at such a HIGH decibel it was impossible to join the crowd.  Noticed others hung back as well, especially those with children.

Only able to to watch from a distance, no where near the stage, was disappointing; not able cover the rally speakers.

Jews FIGHT Back.


Saw Yad Yamin NY [https://www.facebook.com/JewsFightBack1/]

And Curtis Sliwa, always there for Israel.

Later I noticed I had captured  the obnoxious “Crack Head Barney” standing in the crowd (left of center- in pink dress/ blond curly wig) See [Crackhead Barney at @CHBAF]

Barney” loves confrontations so the police removed her immediately.


And of course, she complained.

She did not want to be ‘penned’ with the Neturei Karta protestors (she works ALONE)

.Apparently,  ‘Barney” headed uptown, perhaps hoping to hook up with another scheduled  Support Israel gathering. Elad Eliahu found “Barney” making a nuisance of herself -as usual- to anyone she could hassle. (see his video below)

.But, once I arrived at Duffy, saw only 3 or 4 people hanging around.

The police asked the Jewish support groups to stay home. (The “palestinians” were quite violent at the most recent rally in Duffy (see LINK)

Guess it worked. Both sides were hardly visible.

.
WTC 7 to Duffy/Times Square.  The message: ISRAEL has a RIGHT to DEFEND. 

Am Yisrael Chai!

Pro-Israel Rally : Stand Up Against Terror – NYC (5-12-21)

May 12, 2021 Duffy Square . NYC. Stand Up Against Terror.
(no idea why this rally was never posted here)

It was a really nice turn out in Support for Israel, with just a few Neturei Karta in opposition. Unfortunately the speakers were in a tight circle so the media wasn’t able to get coverage – other than a few signs.

Ben & Jerrys boycott Jews in Israel : STOP Jew Hate

Aug 12, 2021 – On the steps of the NY Public Library on Fifth Avenue. A protest against Ben & Jerry’s Jew-hating decision to boycott Jews in Israel.

Activists handed out free ice cream, t-shirts, and flyers explaining how Ben & Jerry’s de-legitimizes Jewish self-determination and encourages Jew-hatred. By talking face-to-face with members of the public, they were able to make the case against Jew-hatred and explain how Ben & Jerry’s bigotry in Israel harms Jews.

Flickr Slide show

Ben & Jerrys Serve Ice Cream Not Jew HateSupporters of the ‘End Jew Hated’ movement gathered at the New York Public Library entrance with signs reading, ‘End Jew Hatred’ and then marched to the Ben and Jerry’s store in Times Square (which was CLOSED )


They marched through midtown Manhattan protesing ice-cream giant Ben and Jerry’s decision to stop sales of its products in  Judea and Samaria (aka East Jerusalem),  the West Bank Settlements.

Video 1 – short excerpts: Intro speaker. Then  Second speaker, David Weprin, NY State Assemblyman. “Shame on you, Ben and Jerry. Shame on Unilever. If you support hate, we will boycott you.” Next speaker, a young woman (one of the organizers) and lastly the blowing of the shofar. “End Jew Hatred Now!

Video 2: The ‘End Jew Hated’ movement gathered with signs reading, ‘End Jew Hatred’. LATER dozens of these pro-Israel supporters marched through midtown Manhattan to protest ice-cream giant Ben and Jerry’s decision to stop sales of its products in Judea and Samaria (aka East Jerusalem) – the West Bank Settlements

B&J’s announced on July 19  that it would no longer sell ice cream in the ‘Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT)‘ due to inconsistencies with their values, and they would stay in ‘Israel through a different arrangement.‘ COWARDS.

“Globalize the Intifada” anti-Zionists outside NYC Israeli Consulate

August 16, 2021. 4 pm. NYC.”Go to Hell Israel” was chanted by a few dozen “palestinian” anti-zionists protesting outside the Israeli consulate. Their goal today was “Globalize the Intifada”. “Show the world that while corrupt governments normalize with the enemy, the people continue to rise up against normalization and in defense of “palestine“!

There was a smaller but equally robust counter-protest as they chanted Hamas Kills Kids and Am Yisrael Chai!#JewsFightBack and #EndJewHatred

“Zionists unite across the street from the Israel Consulate. Our voices MUST be loud and strong. OUR voices must drown out the demands of the Jew-haters who call for death to Jews by calling for “Intifada”. Our Jewish pride and strength must be heard and seen from NYC to Jerusalem. Send a message to Jews around the world: Stand up! Be seen! Be heard!  Send a message to Jew haters to End Jew Hatred! “

Jews Fight Back vs Globalize the Intifada

Video 1 : Nerdeen Mohsen Kiswani. (the passing traffic was loud) “palestinian stolen land. 70 years and they continue to steal “palestinian” land. “palestinian” cities where people have to be kicked out … stolen or demolished … We have the solidarity of the people with us. You hear people honking … different countries supporting the people of “palestine“… global.

Law student, community activist & “palestine” legal client, Nerdeen Kiswani, has faced a barrage of attacks for her campus and local organizing for “palestinian” freedom, alongside @CUNYLawSJP and @cunyjlsa . The law office of Lamis Deek is representing Nerdeen in conjunction with “palestine” legal.

Video 2 : Watched a young Marxist Jew stomp on Israeli flag …  across from the Pro-Israeli,End Jew Hatred protestors.

His flag with hammer & sickle represented the Communist Party of Israel …  Marxism-Leninism and Anti- Zionism.

Video 3: Sadly the Jew Hatred continues, built on LIES spewed from the ‘palis’ and Marxists outside the Israeli Consulate..

The lies and the hatred must be challenged: Globalize Jewish Pride.

March on Gracie Mansion: Say No to Vaccine Passports!

August 15, 2021 (Sunday) : Rally at Gracie Mansion opposing the vaccine passports. The mandate was to begin on Monday, August 16th. Restaurants, theatres, bowling alleys and gyms will need to check vaccination cards or scan apps for proof of vaccination. No entry otherwise.  Which lead to the march!

As decreed by Mayor “de Bozo” the required passport checks are “so we can participate FULLY in society“. But, next …  the EX-Gov. Cuomo and obscene Dr. Fauci have recommended : a BOOSTER shot!

First speaker was Curtis Sliwa, Republican Candidate for Mayor of NYC. He spoke to a robust crowd outside Gracie Mansion – the citizens of NYC who demanded their God-given right to Freedom-of-Choice. Video:

The crowd was very clear: No to Vaccine Passports; No to Forced Vaccinations. My Body. My Choice. Enough!

However, an upper East Side reporter besmirched the protestors [Upper East Site] Many in the media have characterized Freedom-of-Choicers as selfish loons. See also the obscene  [NY Daily News]  And equally obscene scare-mongering seeped out of the NY Times:

This was clearly a diverse and informed crowd. See Flickr Slideshow:

March on Gracie Mansion

Many business owners stated they are not in the business of being the vaccination police. From Pasticceria Rocco, a pastry shop and diner in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn,  “It is really hard to go up against a machine, and that’s what we are up against. Honestly, I put the sign up because I was hoping that other business owners would also have the courage to speak out. But it is mainly our customers who have reached out in support.”

Wonder what Pfizer offered the FDA to approve a drug that won’t complete clinical trials till 2023 …

Karen Kingston, a former Pfizer employee and current analyst for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, came forward with indisputable documentation that should be shared with the ENTIRE WORLD!

She claims that ”the inoculation being referred to as COVID “Vaccine” is a poisonous death sentence and nobody should subject themselves to the shots.”

Whatever the conclusion


Will this “New World” tyranny never end?

Justice For Jan 6 – Free Political Prisoners NOW – Foley Square NYC

Justice For Jan 6 – Free Political Prisoners NOW! (July 25 and  June 27,2021)

Video Part 1 – Today was Antifa vs Free Jan 6 Political Prisoners. A protest rally (1- 3 pm.) in Foley Square hosted by C.A.P.P (Citizens Against Political Prosecution). The Jan 6 political prisoners have been locked up in cages. American citizens denied justice.

IMG_7315-2jpgSaw the Antifa Goons approaching Foley as I arrived .

IMG_7243 The antifa and fellow leftist chums came to harass the patriots (and the police)  – even threw a few eggs. (United Against Racism & Fascism-NYC is a broad-based coalition in NYC opposing racism & bigotry, and united in solidarity & action against fascism.)

There were loads of NYPD to keep both sides separated.

brian nypdCrack Head Barney was there being a nuisance. Saw Bernard Goetz Proud Boy Garth, of New York chapter of Proud Boys was a speaker.Video part 2 –  It was a well behaved crowd, the patriots. The only nasty shiz came from the antifas. (It took too long for the speakers to arrive. Left after an hour of a very loud rapper who was filling time)

June 27, 2021 had a different problem.
This was also “Gay Pride Day” and the city was a mess, transportation-wise.  Had intended to stay for the speakers, but 30 minutes in, still no speakers (and it was in the 90s temp-wise). Unfortunately, couldn’t find a link to their speakers at their web-site.

But, getting justice is not going well for the Jan 6 prisoners. Fair and Balanced is not on the demon-crats menu.

House Democrats voted almost entirely along party lines Wednesday to create a special committee tasked with investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol after Senate Republicans blocked a more bipartisan plan for probing the bloody insurrection. Just two Republicans — anti-Trump Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois — joined all 220 Democrats in voting 222-190 for the establishment of the special Jan. 6 panel.
