“No More Endless Wars” “World Can’t Wait” For Peace-Times Sq

Noon. Times Sq (10-7-16) “World Can’t WaitGranny Peace BrigadeNo More Endless Wars, Veterans for Peace Leftists lined up outside the Times Square Recruitment Center to spread the news:In 2016 the US Is At War With Seven Countries

It was a very quiet protest ….
Except for the “cute” no-more-war”songs sung by tone-deaf Grannies. Coinciding with the protest, but unrelated, four seriously armed officers – weapons ready – right there in Times Square.

So … if I understand the protest meme correctly, “Put an END to the U.S. War Machine” and such armed displays would just disappear…. Because … there would be NO MORE WARS. Right? (Notice: Swamp Land For Sale)

Saw MANY of the same protestors from the “Netanyahu/Kissinger War- Mongers” Plaza Hotel protest. “No more ENDLESS wars” protests. They are sign-ready, repeat offenders all. (Click through slide show below)


Today they had better signs – larger-flyers –
….  and a GREEN party candidate,  Robin Laverne Wilson 
Robin says, “I was asked directly by the Green Party of New York to consider the candidacy for U.S. Senate in the State of New York, and with great honor and humility, I accepted.” (she is opposing Sen. “Chuckie” Schumer)

The Green Party an international movement of global citizens who honor Earth over Empire.
They have no love for “Hilda ” – Oppose Trump (of course)

The Peace and Love candidates. Bernies people, most likely (old saw commie that he is). Or the Green Party’s, Jill Stein. BUT….  they aren’t all “Peace and Love”. Scowls for me all around.

A coy fellow asked if my shotgun mic wind-muff (the ‘dead cat”) was a dead SQUIRREL (as in Vigilant Squirrel Brigade) I played dumb. Smiled. Moved on. Better than getting shoved around cause “words will never hurt me”(so they say)

Comrade Debra Sweet loves to walk straight at me – hard – like she’ll crush me- then walks away. My crime? Covering their actions. Not playing for the same team. (throw the bum out!)
What did they actually accomplish? My pictures- their pictures- some video- a couple of media interviews- a tourist attraction (they LOVE to take pics with the commies)But nothing YUGE.
Two Times Sq Alliance guards
were concerned( briefly) Took pictures- observed -walked away. After all, this is Times Square. Passersby revealed the obvious, the world is more than just this protest.

The Jewish High Holy Days….
….Comicon…. [note her sword]Perhaps  that’s why even the heavily armed cops and the NYPD station, right there at 43rd st, had limited interest in a quiet protest. No harm. No foul. Get in. Get out.
The damage “World Can’t Wait” can actually cause is in our colleges. I’ve observed their faculty-sponsored meetings at Brooklyn College… a template for RECRUITING  students. I sat quietly at a meeting but, my presence was a HUGE irritant. (No QUIET opposition allowed) Elaine Brower “outed” me as a “SPY” for the FBI (bells sirens lights flashing) as students in the room gasped …. laughable if only Brower and her Commie insurgents weren’t succeeding. Their indoctrination within our schools is welcomed and goes UNchallenged. Seeding the next generation matters more than these tame displays in Times Square.
So, putting a spotlight on them, this day, at the Times Square Recruitment Center helps to inform – to expose them in our schools where THEY RECRUIT and INDOCTRINATE our youth.

The Horowitz Foundation Freedom Center  is doing a stellar job of exposing their lies.

If you didn’t know before —you do now— They make no secret of their intentions

For the last 71⁄2 years, the United States, under a Democratic Commander in Chief, has waged an illegitimate and immoral war encompassing Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Syria, and Somalia while maintaining a torture camp in Guantánamo that he pledged to close on “Day 1.”

The wars are now conducted largely through the use of killer drones – remotely controlled, without accountability, illegal, and hated around the world. These drone strikes have killed thousands, destroyed families ,and traumatized whole nations. Neither Trump nor Clinton will stop the “war on terror” or end this culture of violence and hatred.

If you care about the future of humanity and the planet, then the only choice is to act together to stop this commitment to wars for empire.


Send the message around the world that that there are people living in this country who represent another way, giving them heart, courage and common cause.

Bring your music, poems, and rage!

Haiti asks Clintons “WHERE’S the Billions” [10-06-16]

The NYC Haitian Community (& allies) held a  press conference (of sorts) to “denounce Schneiderman`s double standard in deciding to persecute the Trump Foundation for fraud while ignoring the lack of audits and  billions `missing` from the Clinton Foundation.” They demand the Clinton’s return BILLIONS stolen from Haiti.

Thursday, October 6, 2016 from 3:00 to 4:00pm outside New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman‘s NYC Office (at 120 Broadway)

“Schneiderman is clearly abusing the authority of his office to tilt the scales in favor of Hillary Clinton in the upcoming US presidential elections.”

This announcement came from  KOMOKODA (the Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti)

“Our community has been protesting, for 2 years now, in front of the Clinton Foundation, Hillary`s offices in Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as Bill Clinton`s Harlem office; to let the world know of the crimes this family has committed in our country. They used `poor` Haiti as a conduit to launder funds into their foundation accounts.”

“The Clintons gave lucrative no bid contracts for Haiti earthquake cleanup, reconstruction and housing to cronies who in turn gave them high-priced speeches and `donated` to their foundation.

They imposed Michel `Sweet Micky` Martelly, a degenerate crackhead as President of our country to ensure that the Haitian Government wouldn’t call them out on their crimes.”

“The complicity of mainstream and even some so-called progressive media in this charade is disgusting. We demand that the different branches of US federal and local governments stop this blatant cover up of the crimes of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton family.”

WHO were these protestors – I’m confused because  Lynn Stewart’s husband, Ralph Poynter, was handing out flyers. Workers World? and Democracy Now?

An eclectic bunch this day that seems to agree on exposing Clinton but do they ALL support TRUMP. (probably not)

Participants included Ralph Poynter – activist & community organizer, Betty Davis; civil rights activist and writer Arvind Kumar;  Frank Francois, community activist and Green Party candidate for US Congress in the 5th District and writer- investor ,Charles Ortel,whose investigations revealed financial fraud at General Electric and AIG.

A excerpted message from writer/investor Charles Ortel

“With Haiti and her wonderful people under assault again, it should grieve all Americans that Bill Clinton and his false-front network pretending to be “charity” refuses to account for billions of dollars in missing aid money. What kind of people divert rescue funds from poor neighbors who share so many common bonds? The people of Haiti deserve a bright future… Thank you for prodding Americans to do the right thing, for exposing Clinton family disaster cronyism and for your fortitude.

Arvind Kumar Hindu activist / writer held rallies FOR TRUMP in Philly. [(American Rally For Trump]

Protest message from Arvind Kumar:

People of Indian descent stand with the people of Haiti in opposing the Clinton Foundation. We are aware of the Clinton Foundation’s shenanigans as they have attempted to interfere in Indian politics. Sant Chatwal who was the trustee of the Clinton Foundation was wanted for committing a crime in India and was guilty of corruption in the US. His son Vikram Chatwal was arrested for trafficking drugs.

Soon after Hillary Clinton became the Secretary of State, Vikram Chatwal donated a large sum of money to a person in India who manufactured “human rights” reports against India but which were aligned with Hillary Clinton’s anti-India agenda. Chatwal’s name also came up in what was known as the cash for votes scam in India.

Writer Roger Stone
was on hand for awhile (and Dr. James Corsi arrived after I left)

Dahoud Andre for KOMOKODA

*At the time we are sending this email the Haitian Government has upgraded the death toll from Hurricane Matthew to 283. We have to note that the authorities have yet to reach some severely affected areas of the country. As unbelievable as it sounds Bill Clinton has published a tweet directing people wishing to help Haiti in the aftermath of the hurricane to donate to the Clinton Foundation and their network of crooks in Haiti.  [….] we would like to thank all well meaning people who have expressed their concerns and positive vibrations toward our people with regard to Hurricane Matthew which has ravaged the Southern parts of Haiti. […] We thank everyone who is eager to make a donation but given our experience with international NGO’s such as the Red Cross and the Clinton Foundation stealing moneys donated to help our people, we ask people not to repeat the same mistake they made in the past.


“KOMOKODA  [t]AG Schneiderman […] As a member of Hillary Clinton’s Leadership Council for NY State and as someone who has campaigned and donated the maximum allowed ($2700) to Clinton […] if he was not going to go after the Clinton Foundation, the proper thing would have been to leave the Trump Foundation alone as well

… the Haitian people… have no idea what they have done with all the billions meant to help Haiti that have been in their charge: Secretary of State Hillary’s control of all USAID money, Bill’s UN Special Envoy money, Bill’s Interim Haiti Recovery Commission money, Bill’s Clinton-Bush Fund money, and of course their Clinton Foundation money.

….the Clinton Foundation …. collects billions on behalf of poor non-white people all over the world; keeps billions for themselves and spends a few million on silly projects that will never allow their victims to get on their feet.[…]  This Foundation is no more than a channel for the Clintons to enrich themselves, keep those loyal to them employed and amass a war chest so they can stay in power and out of jail.

 We are telling the American people that[….] in this race Donald Trump is the lesser evil facing the US and humanity today.

Just like the people of England did with their Brexit, we hope that on Tuesday Nov. 8th, the American people will slap their establishment in the face and stop Hillary Clinton with a vote Donald Trump.

 The REAL Hillary exposed remains in reach of the presidency.

Daniel Greenfield:
Even when the Clinton Foundation tried to perform its good deed for the year, it cut corners on charity to keep up its core mission of getting Hillary into the White House.
It shipped AIDS medicines that had been banned in the United States to the Third World. Haitians protested outside Hillary’s office over the millions that had been raised for Haiti, but got funneled to Hillary pals like Warren Buffett instead.

The Clintons are attracted to corruption the way that flies are drawn to offal. The media can spot no flies on Hillary. Its fact checkers excuse every scandal. They even invent a positive spin for a fly landing on her. The ordinary fly visiting Hillary may hold no special meaning. But flies are notoriously attracted to rotting things. And no political figures in this country are as rotten to the core as the Clintons.

Hillary skates on charge after charge.
No matter how many laws they break. Wake Up, America!

Netanyahu & Kissinger “WAR Criminals Protest” Plaza Hotel [ 9-22-16]

Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016 , 5:30 pm – NY’s Plaza Hotel
A protest organized by Jewish Voice For Peace, co-sponsored by Code Pinkos and Adalah NY and joined by World Can’t Wait. The protestors ranted and chanted:
Irate that Netanyahu was receiving an award from the “right-wing” Hudson Institute, they marched in front of the hotel with their versions of Netanyahu’s awards.

The 10-year, $38 billion military aid package signed between the two countries earlier the month and opposition to efforts to boycott Israel. ”
(Facebook photo by Neha Sood)


Three short videos:

The protestors carried smarmy signs like, “Natural Born Killers”  (click on picture below to flip through slide show)


And banners that declared Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to be a WAR Criminal.

From the protest announcement:

“Come show the world that we do no see these individuals as heroes–but rather as criminals. Come show these war criminals that New Yorkers of conscience will not stand by while they prance around our city and pat each other on the back for their misdeeds. We will present “Bibi” with our OWN awards–ones that expose his crimes and vile behavior”

Join us as we raise our voices against Netanyahu’s regime of human rights abuses. Come show the world that New Yorkers of conscience do not welcome Netanyahu. We will present him with our own award, one that sheds light on the rights violations of the Israeli government.

Later, on Saturday, the anti-Bibi protest continued “on Broadway”:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was booed and met with cries of ‘Free Palestine’ after going to watch the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton”.

Melanie Colton tweeted: ‘At Hamilton… two women entered the Richard Rodgers Theater screaming, ‘Free Palestine!’ They were “escorted” out of the theatre after trying to shove their way through Netanyahu’s heavy security.

Mondoweiss eagerly posted:”Now he’s “Boo Boo!” Netanyahu!”

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was booed and met with cries of 'Free Palestine' after going to watch hit Broadway musical Hamilton in New York
FACT: It was NOT the whole audience –  just TWO women – most likely CODE Pinkos (picture from Mark Young twitter)

Back to the Plaza. Kissinger attended the banquet so, of course, he was the focus of a War Criminal QUIZ  (click picture to enlarge)

Found this protest plea, promoting their UN- type nonsense:

Google, Inc: GOOGLE: Put Palestine On Your Maps!   20,333 signatures are still needed! Sign this petition on

Smug. Cocky. And SO wrong!

NYC Muslim Parade 2016 “One Umma,For God & Country”

The 31st Annual Muslim Day Parade (Sept. 25, 2016)
One Umma, For God and Country.”

Nine years ago I first covered this annual Muslim “parade with no audience”
(’cause anyone interested is IN the parade)

Even so, “Takbir’s” and “Allahu Akbar’s”would ring through the air. Block after block. Down Madison Ave

Madison Avenue – from 38th to 26th St-

Starting around 2011, five years ago, a Turkish Muslim Day Street Festival was held just a few blocks west of the of the “26th annual Muslim Day Parade” (at the same time as the Muzzie Parade)  Was this as a mistake of timing? Or a reason for the diminishing parade.

Turkish Days Street-Fest (Taste the Turkish Hospitality)
by celebrating the Great Seljuq Empire

DSCN5776 copy
Perhaps it was a red-flag denoting trouble amongst the Muslim factions.  (see Facebook nudge below, “We intend to bring 10,000...) Did NOT happen.

This year’s press conference stressed how difficult it is to be a Muslim – American, maybe they were trying to  explain the missing groups. (Fear? Intimidation?)

Those who came out to celebrate were mostly Indonesian Muslims. I’ve noticed that the Indonesian women are often the ones in niqabs – not just hijabs.

dsc_3040Some marched against abuse. (Hoping to end Sharia abuse?)

Will the Turk-undertaker, Erhan Yildirim, a respected Community Co-ordinator for the NYPD ( seen on his phone below) be educating the NYPD to fight (or to ignore) Sharia abuse? They’ll probably learn that abuse is the problem, not Islam.

The Puerto Rican Muslim above,  wearing the “fakestinian” scarf, did a lot of talking with the press. Wonder if he would have been so chatty if asked about Sharia vs American Law. 
(OR is that not a POLITE question?)

Missing were the many colorful multi-ethnic costumes and hijabs BUT, these two  new participants on the sidelines, were peaceful protestors with a serious message.
The woman on the left said her father, a NYC fireman, died in the Twin Towers

As for the many Indonesian groups, they added lots of color by  carrying (and wearing)  an abundance of American flags along with their “Peace for All/Justice for All” signs.With so few Muslim schools and masjids marching, this intimate parade was spread out, with huge gaps between groups.

(see my parade video for more of the distaff marchers )

                  There were children …..                    AND                       hijabs and niqabs …

(Lots of niqabs)

And  LOTS of American flags marching for “One Umma – God and Country”

There was an abundance of  “Peace R
oses”  for  people ‘watching’ on the sidelines.

A beautiful child wth a peace rose and Old Glory….  But, FIRST,  BEFORE the parade kicked-off, there was the  zuhr prayer – at 1 pm 

With the women kneeling behind the men…
Avenue, once again, converted into a very public masjid. (see video)

Then we marched, lead by the NYPD Marching Band (no mounted color guard this year)

NYC Muslim officers  carried 
banners for each group. One NYPD banner seemed WAY too religious.  What if that had been a BIBLE instead of a Quran?

The parade marshals I’d seen before, except for this year’s Grand Marshal, Khazir Khan.dsc_3064 Khan is the Pakistani Muslim-American father of United States Army Capt. Humayun Khan, killed in Iraq in 2004 .Khan walked with celeb, Russell Simmons and Imam Shamsi Ali. However, the  politicians did NOT march down Madison Ave.  They joined up at the END of the parade – for photo ops . Like David Weprin (NY State Assemblyman). Wonder why he didn’t march  .





Many of the usual political faces were missing: Linda Sarsour (running for office soon, I hear), Debbie Almontaser, Rabbi Michael Feinberg and his Leftie Jewish associates. Councilman Jackson (a Muslim revert) and Marxist loving, Charles Barron.

10,000 in attendance? Not as they marched. (Or prayed)

Nor when they assembled to hear the speakers at the end of the parade (26th St to 25th St )

(BTW- New this year, the merchant booths were in a short block going east on 26th St)

Found an interesting article about  Imam Shamsi Ali, an Indonesian Muslim who, in 2o11,  was”fired” from the the Islamic Cultural Center on 96th Street . Did the parade shrink because of Ali and a religious conflict on how to be a (moderate) Muslim-American?

Shamsi Ali: The rise and fall of a New York imam

“An imam once regarded as one of New York’s leading religious figures had a sudden fall from grace. So what does the story of one man’s attempt to adapt Islam to modern America tell us, asks Sune Engel Rasmussen.

Before the controversy that cut him down, Shamsi Ali was the leading figure of moderate Islam in New York, for Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

For a decade, the biggest mosque in New York, the Islamic Cultural Center on 96th Street in East Harlem, was his stage. Here, the diminutive Indonesian with a brusque demeanour praised democracy and vigorously condemned extremism, to thousands of worshippers. Outside the mosque, he taught the FBI and congressmen in Washington about inter-religious co-existence.

He befriended presidents too. In the days after 11 September 2001, the city of New York picked him to represent the Muslim community on President George W Bush’s interfaith visit to Ground Zero. Another president, Bill Clinton, wrote the foreword to the new memoir, Sons Of Abraham, that Ali co-authored with a Jewish rabbi he counts among his close friends.

Although many of his conservative peers interpret the Koran to prohibit the use of music, Ali listens to rap and hangs out with hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons. He even shrugs, disinterested, at cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

In short, Shamsi Ali is the Muslim that liberal America wants. But he is not the leader all New York’s Muslims want. Ali is a divisive figure in New York’s Islamic community, and two years ago, the same mosque that gave him a platform to grow influential and popular, suddenly pulled the rug from under him.”

 “How to be a Muslim- American”…  Who is winning?
(Who is losing?) …. Can we tell??

As usual, there were a couple of non-Muslim factions marching. About 6 people from a multi-faith group of Christians and Jews (Expecting Miracles) With two familiar hard-core lefties who always march for “fakestine”.

Since it’s considered unseemly to conflate Islam (the Religion of “Peace”) with anything negative …  They (and the press) “negate the negative” with  lots of dawah; community and inter-faith outreach with the ubiquitous memes like:  “Muslim-Americans want PEACE.” They support “God and Country.”

The news coverage of the 2016 parade focused on “One Umma, For God and Country…. and a Desire to Show Dedication to God and U.S.”  (As did a couple of speakers) Guess there’s nothing like a Live Rap duet video (from Muslim Day Parade Facebook page) to say “I am a Muslim-American”. [This leads to a time coded excerpted transcript of live feed) Shamsi Ali said it was important to show “there’s no contradiction between being a good American and a good Muslim at a time when some people are conflating the actions of terrorists with Islam. “Inherently American values and Islamic values are in line,” he said. “It is about democracy, it is about freedom, it is about religious tolerance, it is about working together with all people. Justice for all.”

Zaki Abdul from East Harlem said he [came out] to show what a large gathering of Muslims looks like. “Muslims generally are people of peace, those people who are really subscribed to Islam according to Islam, he said. “People should see that.”

Found this twitter post/picture of Khizr Khan speaking ….

“Be part of interfaith activities, be part of the community and be part of the solution” Khizr Khan, Grand Marshal at the Muslim Day Parade


From Pamela Geller- who is very much a PART of the solution.

jewish-new-yearThe coming year is a momentous one. It’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good if the forces of evil have their way in the coming Presidential election. The order of the world, the future of freedom hangs in the balance. The choice could not be more stark or vastly different. Statism vs. individualism. Freedom vs. slavery. Civilization vs. savagery.”

The facts – the truth- ignored – denied.

It’s been ten days since Eric Lichtblau published his piece about the “under-reporting” of attacks on Muslims. How many attacks on Muslims by non-Muslims in this country have there been in that time? None. And how many attacks on non-Muslims by Muslims have there been in the same time?

And as for under-reporting on a monumental scale, it is only thanks to a leak that we all learned, a few days ago, that in one year the FBI had 7,712 “terrorist encounters.” None of them were reported to the American public until now. “

And more – from Facebook :

“Islam is not a religion but an ideology which incites hate, violence, intolerance and terror. Islamists are terminators. You cannot bargain with them. You cannot reason with them. They do not feel pity or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until all the infidels are dead or have submitted to Islam. The only language the Islamists understand is the language of force.”

truth is the new hate speech geller

The TRUTH ….. it’s a terrible thing to waste!

International “Go Topless Day”, Womens’ Equality & ISLAM (are they compatible)

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 4.19.44 PM[For video links above – click box]

Go-Topless Day hosted by the Raelians. August 26, 2016. An expose on a movement. An organization. (a religion?)

This is not my usual posting, with lots of visuals, instead I’ve done my best to make it as inoffensive as possible, with links to my uncensored pics and vids posted at the end of this article.

FIRST some Q and A

Q: Why post this at all?

A: There’s a cultural phenom to be witnessed.

A disintegration of propriety that appears generation after generation. The arrogance of youth, perhaps.

Q. Is it?

A: Not from the aggregate ages at Columbus Circle. There were many representatives of the older but not necessarily “wiser” generation who happily bared their chests (breasts)

Q: What was most obviously achieved by this glut of female public nudity? Were our minds set-free?

A: Not likely. Oogling Males. (some even managed selfies). The mad crush of cameras (male and female) It felt so prurient aka salacious, voyeuristic and lewd (don’t ‘cha think?)

Q: Go-Topless Day. Is this representative of our ‘better selves”, this bridging of the generation gaps, to which our 21st Century society – our western culture – should aspire?

A: Due to the ages on display – I think not. Their bare-breasted elders grasping at their long-lost youth on Go-Topless Day. For the others, it was a New Wave awakening. A day when they became the willing Fools and Tools of the Raelian Movement. A conglomerate of foolish exhibitionism; unsightly and laughably irrelevant.

ARE THEIR LAWS regarding public nudity (aka decency) that protect the right to female public nudity (State by State)? Are there any “public decency” bills that resurface on occasion?

Found one Bill in CA at BillTrack50

screen-shot-2016-09-24-at-12-16-06-pmSo, onward to the WHO, WHAT and WHY of this event.

First, why here? This is NYC where Going Topless is LEGAL! Times Square has become a repository for many industrious exhibitionists. Desnudas-the Naked Grandma & Cowgirl – the Zucotti Park “Occupy Wall Street”(pre-school “teacher”). I have come across these different examples of New York’s legal public nudity and photographed them all. At first I thought they were breaking public decency laws. NOPE. And the TOURISTS seem to LOVE it. (Especially the adolescent boys) SO, what’s the point?

The Go Topless Movement claims they speak for women worldwide who have not yet gained the LEGAL right to “FREE their Breasts. FREE their Minds.”  Glad we cleared that up.

 topless 1 copy

Some might ask, “WHAT is the Raelian topless movement?”

Or, since they challenge Christianity and the morés of the West, “WHY no mention of ISLAM?” As they urged the prudes-of-the-west to ‘strip off your bras’, “What of the 52 Muslim countries?”

Would public nudity be allowed in any of these Muslim countries?

If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park or in the backyard, without a cover and the cats eat it, is it the fault of the cat or the uncovered meat?” the Grand Mufti of Australia said. “The uncovered meat is the problem.”

The Grand Mufti wasn’t discussing cats or meat. He was talking about gang rapes by fourteen Muslim men. “If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred,” he said.

Islamists […] encourage Muslim men to carry out assaults on non-Muslim women who don’t comply with Islamic law.” – Daniel Greenfield

topless 2

The Raelian hosts of Go-Topless Day. In the video below, we hear from the main Raelian, a French dude: Claude Vorlihon (a.k.a. Rael).

Rael says, “following what was an extraterrestrial encounter in December 1973, he formed the Raëlian Movement and changed his name to Raël (allegedly meaning “messenger of the elohim”)… he claims (to have had) an encounter with a being called Yahweh in 1973.[5″ 

He (they) believe something akin to Scientology – the alien “colonizing earth” meme.

And somehow this lead the Raelians  to “FREE THE BREASTS – FREE THE MIND”.

In other videos at Rael TV,  Rael teaches that much of world’s ills can be repaired by NOT treating women’s breasts as sex objects.

So, by making public FEMALE bare-breasted nudity LEGAL we will put an end to the oogling of the male animal who, when catching even a glimpse of the naked female breast, often just has to oogle.

Once female nudity is universally permitted society will reach some higher plateau and NO OOGLING will prevail. [I’ve got some swampland for sale if you buy-in to this theory]

Back to Go-Topless Day 2016 (NYC). The bare-breasted female protestors were SAFELY within the police barricades, where an equally odd assortment of males were mixing with the women (of all ages and sizes). A crowd-crush of leering and oogling surrounded them. Not anyone’s proudest moments, perhaps BUT, we are told this day was one small step in releasing women from the bonds of Western-CHRISTIAN shaming.

About those male participants who went bare-chested (though I found a couple who preferred bras) many were elderly males – probably gay- and in many different bare-chested modes.

Diversity ruled.

The seemingly straight-men were either the photographers OR on the sidewalk side of the barricades, surrounded by many, many Asians (male & female).

And across 58th street were a few Latino and Arab types.

I saw some (probably straight) males who managed to slip into the press area (some to take selfies), but they were ferreted out (no press creds) and made to exit back to the SAFE side of the barricades.

Everyone had their cameras held high with NO gawking allowed unless there was a barricade to keep them at bay.

As for the distaff participants, there was also much diversity. The pretty women. Young thin. Thinking this ridiculous parade to be an enlightened moment in their lives: Okay. Sure. The mistakes of youth.(And, yes, with so many police at hand, no one was getting hurt.)

But,for the larger breasted and much older ladies, “Put your shirt on” could have been asked of more than just a few ….

+++ Is this really a U.S. Constitutional moment? +++

The Raelian Movement (  claims that denying FEMALE public nudity is against the Constitution. (No example was giving of where this is written.

They also claim to be 64,000 strong, this Raelian “religion”. Founded by Frenchman Claude Vorlihon (a.k.a. Rael), they believe humans were created 25,000 years ago by aliens using genetic engineering and that genetic engineering holds the key to eternal life.

SO, these bare-breasted women and the Raelian Revelations, that’s all we need for a happy life. Who would’ve thought that the “pursuit of happiness” could be so “simple”.

Women of the World, Rise up! FREE your Breasts. FREE your MINDS! The rest of us should ‘take heed, ’cause they’re probably coming to a college near you, REAL soon.

Au revoir!

++ An addendum++

A bit more on the Raelian Movement and a snippet from the NY Post report on the Topless march:

“In honor of Women’s Equality Day the GO TOPLESS PRIDE PARADE 2016 (in its ninth year) was held worldwide.

For all those willing to bring their diversity and unique twist to a Topless Rights Parade for Gender Equality in the Big Apple !!

Vorlihon (their fearless leader) claims that aliens… commissioned him to prepare humans for the second coming of their extraterrestrial creators by teaching a message of sexual freedom and eternal life through science… and he encourages women to go even further, to take charge of this planet!”

When I arrived, I knew nothing about the Raelian Sponsorship but, I knew something (or someone) was connected, as I saw this disturbing symbol on t-shirts and necklaces walking amongst the parade participants.

The current official symbol of the Raelian Movement is a hexagram intertwined with a right-facing swastika.”

“This is a symbol that Rael saw on the Elohim spaceship. As a point of note, a very similar symbol can be seen on some copies of the Tibetan Book of the Dead, where a swastika sits inside two overlapping triangles. Starting around 1991, this symbol was often replaced by a variant star and swirl symbol as a public relations move, particularly toward Israel.

However, the Raelian Movement has now re-adopted the original version as their official symbol. Raelians argue that the banning of the swastika because of its Nazi connections would be like banning the Christian cross because the Klu Klux Klan used to burn them as symbols of their own hate.”

As the parade marched down Broadway (to 48th), and then across to the UN, I made another observation: I think THESE are Bernie’s People. Sure, some will vote for “Hilda”, but this ‘ain’t her people” (or “The Donald’s”).

A cross-section of what’s gone deeply wrong with our culture.

Gullible Leftards lead by a French Raelian, who offers Eternal Life compliments of Alien Geneticists.

PLEASE RUN ! Don’t walk to the ballot box on Nov 8. G-d save us all from these cultural absurdities. Our future depends on it.

The NY Post captured a fatuous comment from one of the nubile participants:

While the publicly naked female nipple has been legal in New York since 1992, the Go Topless Parade is intended to honor “women’s equal rights to go topless in public.

…those who opted to doff their tops — many taking part in the rally noted the crowds were mostly made of up gawking men and creeps with cameras.

“We’re not here for everyone’s entertainment, we’re not here to get our pictures taken. We’re here to show that this is normal and that it’s legal to have your top off in New York City as a woman,” said visibly upset lab tech Elyse Scarpino, a 26-year-old from New Jersey.

“I thought it was gonna be a little more progressive and less men just ogling at you.”

“I don’t see any respect here, I just see people pointing their—” Scarpino was interrupted mid-sentence by another man trying to shove his camera toward her breasts.” – NY Post

Illegal Migrants Reclaim “Dignity” – Trump Tower 8/31/16

Proudly they proclaimed: Eight Cosecherxs (eros) were able to block Trump Tower, imagine what we can accomplish with 11 million.[Facebook photo attribution]

Our brave Cosecheras and Cosecheros

“Even though 24hours in NYC jail was unpleasant I felt incredibly lucky to have the support of this crew, and so thankful for all the support we had on the outside. Special thanks to Catalina Adorno for legal coordination, Nataly Castaño Vélez for calling and reassuring my parents that everything was fine, Roberto Juarez for picking up your phone at all hours, Carlos Saavedra Diaz for excellent police liaisoning, Vera Parra for being an incredible media coordinator, and to Fhatima Paulino for sending love and guidance from afar and for managing our social media media accounts while we were locked up, and to so many others who worked tirelessly to make sure we had everything we needed. ” (Always over-reaching)

What follows are STATEMENTS FROM the COSECHERXS  [arrest photos property of George A. Adorno, Erik McGregor and Cosecha Facebook  / Built By Us]

Carlos E. Rojas Rodriguez – Lives in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, From San Juan De Lurigancho, Lima, Peru


“I am engaging in this civil disobedience to honor my parents’ labor. My parents are one of the most vulnerable workers in this country– they’re farm workers. We migrated from Oaxaca, Mexico to Homestead, Florida in 2005. The experience of the undocumented workers that worked on Trump Tower is parallel to the experience of my parents who work hard under the sun for a mediocre salary. Donald Trump and his supporters don’t recognize the dependency this economy has on hands of working immigrants. I am getting arrested because I know that my parents aren’t the only ones who struggle because they don’t have permanent protection, dignity, and respect. I want to send a message to our community: we will not stand with Trump’s rhetoric of hatred and racism. His ideology is a threat to my family, to me, to 11 million people. The time is now to stand against hate and racism.”

 Amanda Jusino – East Boston, Mass.


“My parents grew up in New York City, both from Puerto Rican immigrant families. Because we are Puerto Rican my family never had to live with the fear and uncertainty of not having papers but they did have to learn to adjust to life in a different language, culture and country. Growing up in Western, MA I saw the disrespect my mom faced at her job in a doctor’s office. Everyday when she came home from work I saw the powerlessness she felt in the face of mistreatment and her inability to leave her job for fear of not getting another. This daily dehumanization wore our family down. I know this is just a tiny sliver of the injustice, disrespect and mistreatment that immigrant families face in this country every day. I’m getting arrested with Cosecha today because I want all immigrants, children of immigrants and grandchildren of immigrants to know that we don’t have stay silent and watch our families and our communities face mistreatment. We are here to demand dignity for our entire community from my mom, to the undocumented workers who build Trump Tower, to the farm workers who picked the apple I ate for breakfast this morning.”

Maria Fernanda Cabello, Lives in Frederick, Md, From Hermosillo, Mexico

When I saw the headlines that Trump started his campaign by saying “When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best” I became upset not by Trump, but by all his supporters that came out and agreed with him. It reminded me of the story of this country. Countless times I have seen racist and xenophobic people treat my family and people like us like we are less deserving because we are immigrants and undocumented. I am getting arrested today because I want to make a statement that you cannot talk down on immigrants while benefiting from our labor. I am getting arrested so that more immigrants join Cosecha and fight against this hateful narrative and to win permanent protection, dignity and respect for immigrants in this country. I want more people to join harvest and fight with us against the anti-immigrant sentiment, so that we can get permanent protection, dignity and respect for our undocumented community.”

adjusted-14114917_1038375916257711_2171830339732725633_o-copyFive years ago, I made a promise to myself and the immigrant community that I was going to fight for us the way they fought for me. That was the same day that the DREAM Act failed on the Senate floor. I had driven all the way down from New Jersey the night before, only to watch the votes come in against me, my community, our future. I saw everyone. The disappointment. The pain. I promised to never allow this pain to come to my community ever again. For five years, I failed to complete my promise and it has eaten at me and bothered me. Especially now. Now, we have the opportunity to start things up again, to take a step towards completing my promise. I’ve realized I’ve been trying to keep this promise by myself so I have to do something that reactivates my community so we can fight together, just like we did in 2010. So I want to tell our community: I need your help. I can’t do this alone anymore.”

 Emily Bloch –  From Brookline, Massachusetts

“It deeply bothers me to live in a country that does not remember its own history. My family came here as Jewish Immigrants from Eastern Europe almost 100 years ago. We came looking for a better life and fleeing persecution just like the 200 undocumented Polish workers that built Trump Tower. I stand with immigrants now because it does not serve this country to have a class of exploited workers who live in perpetual insecurity. I stand with immigrants now, in this civil disobedience, because the people close to my heart can’t get arrested. During this action, I will be thinking of Sonia, an undocumented woman from Peru, who has not seen her children in 12 years. She sees me as one of her children, but it pains me to know that she can’t give her own kids a hug. On her 12th year anniversary of her leaving her country, I called her and we cried on the phone together. We cried because of how deeply we value our relationship, and I cried because I didn’t want to be her substitute child– I want her to see her own children. I want to tell the immigrant community that there’s hope, you have power, and you have allies. This country needs this movement.”

Phoebe Gardener – Lives in Providence, Rhode Island

“I have been organizing immigrant workers for 5 years and I have seen the pain of not being valued because of your status. I’ve seen the pain of working so hard, but not getting paid. The pain of not being treated as a full person. I am engaging in this nonviolent civil disobedience to say that we will not longer accept the pain anymore. I want to show my support and love for the undocumented workers across the country. I am also doing this because of the undocumented people who are making a sacrifice by my side during this action. I want to tell the immigrant community that I will be here until the strike– we are not going anywhere. I see you– I see the sacrifices that you make, the work you do, and I want to honor you. It’s time to do something bigger than we’ve ever done before to make this country recognize that this country relies on you.”

Thaís Marques – Lives in Newark, New Jersey, From Belém, Brazil

“My parents are legal permanent residents, my brother is a citizen and I’m undocumented. I recently had my application for a green card rejected. I sent in the application a week before my 21st birthday, but United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) has the right to be discretionary about their decided that because I applied so close to my birthday I no longer qualified as a minor. Living in a country where decisions about my future are all discretionary, is suffocating. Living here without any rights is suffocating. I’m tired of feeling like I don’t have any control over my future.”

There you have it. Eight very entitled ILLEGAL migrants (and friends) . Chained. Chanting their Lies. Claiming ILLEGALS BUILT Trump Tower!

Trump Tower was built by 200 low wage, undocumented immigrant workers. 35 years later, our people continue to work in fields, construction sites, restaurants, and other industries for less than minimum wage without any dignity or respect. Join us as we honor the undocumented workers who built this tower, but also the workers who continue to build this country.”


In fact, a union lawsuit against the contractor was for pension and welfare benefits for 200 POLISH illegals who were hired to TEAR DOWN the Bonwit Teller Department store, not the CONSTRUCTION of the Tower.

Critical COMMENT made on-line to rebut the Cosecheros :

Built by us? Unless you helped build it with your own hands you have no right saying that. You have no right taking credit for the hard work of Americans and immigrants. Immigrants are and always have been welcome here. Shame on you for trying to equate immigrants with illegal aliens.

++ In these two short video clips, the illegals proudly twist the narrative. VIDEO #1-  I caught snippets of two press interviews.

 Carlos Saavedra Diaz – speaking to NBC: “Once again, the hypocrisy of the message of anti-immigrant racism that Donald Trump has supported, while this building was itself and his hotel in D.C. has been built on the hands and the work of undocumented (aka ILLEGAL) immigrants (MIGRANTS)

Q- What’s going on in front of the door?

” In front of the door we have people that are willing to get arrested, they’re here and in solidarity with this movement- and they’re trying to show that this  (?) messaging, this (?) racist,hateful messaging you can’t send” (HUH?)

Q: What do you hope to accomplish then.

“We’re hoping to accomplish, to recognize the labor of  “undocumented immigrants” that it took to build this country. Took to build Trump’s Tower which is called the most important project in the world  and what it took to build his hotel in D.C.”

Q: (chanting begins again)

“Undocumented workers” have always been misrepresented. We don’t have enough voices (very loud chanting)

Young female (unidentified) gave some of the correct historical background re the demolition of Bonwit Teller (before construction)

“Donald Trump is a hypocrite because he (has used) hate rhetoric against immigrants while (pointing skyward) this tower, before it was built, was demolished by over 200 “undocumented” Polish workers 35 years ago…”

In VIDEO #2,  illegal protestor, Tais Marques, spoke while chained  at the Tower Doors.

Thaís Marques (Cosecha protestor while chained to door) ” My name is Thaís Marques. I am “undocumented”. I am a daughter of legal, permanent residents. My brother is a U.S.  citizen. I am here today to honor the 200 “undocumented” workers who worked on the tower and the 11 million (where do they get these numbers?) “undocumented” who built this. This country DEPENDS on US. (unclear) This country, this economy would FALL. This country depends on us.”

++So. Yes. It was a Peaceful Protest. The “Cosecha EIGHT”  (the 4 chained and 2 each foot-blocking the revolving doors) calmly executed their plan. NO one was getting IN or OUT of the doors (for about an hour). But, the NYPD’s plan was tight, as well: To clear the entrance – from all sides – making it difficult to get good pictures due to the ‘crowd cover’ of police bodies .

71st Anniv. Hiroshima / Nagasaki (No Nukes Now!) Apology Press Conf.

August 5, 2016. NYC. The 71st Annual “Apology Press Conference”, outside the Japanese Consulate.

nagasaki 1
The hard-core Leftists demanded that the American Government, and the American people, apologize for dropping the A-bombs on Hiroshima & Nagasaki in August of 1945.Apologize for Taking Action, a PEACE Action, to end four years of a brutal war in the Pacific; a war that had no end in sight.

A WAR that started, for the U.S., when the Imperial Japanese forces attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor (without warning) on Dec 7, 1941, “A Day that will live in Infamy“.

By 1945, it took the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki to put an end to not four, but actually eight years of the Japanese War in the Pacific. After the bombs were dropped VJ Day came quickly. WW II was finally OVER! Peace was now possible.

Yet, according to these “pacifists”, dropping the A-bombs on Japan was an
unnecessary, evil act; “a catastrophic wrong”. NUKES were NOT the ANSWER.

[Follow Link for Google Doc of “Why Truman Dropped The Bomb”]

Fact: the Imperial Japanese war-machine was the aggressor in that horrid war. But, the hard-core AMERICAN Leftist/Progs were laser-focused on the U.S. only: “America must Apologize!”
Did the Japanese press, reporting on Hiroshima & Nagasaki, acknowledge their country’s deliberate actions in December of ’41, that lead to those fateful days in August of ’45?

Perhaps not, since they were only able to interview the very anti-American Leftists and the American press was a no-show, 
No one on-hand to challenge the lies. The facts, history be damned.

“… from the invasion of China in 1937 to the end of World War II.  The Japanese military regime murdered near 3,000,000 to over 10,000,000 people, most probably almost 6,000,000 Chinese, Indonesians, Koreans, Filipinos, and Indochinese, among others, including Western prisoners of war.”

In speech after speech, “NO one should have a nuclear bomb”: China, Russia. NoKo. Pakistan. India. France. the U.K., the U.S. …. But….
What about IRAN?  If only there had been some protestors like this man at   a pro-Israel/ anti-Nuclear Iran Rally in 2015. Nope. Not this day in 2016 [Cue choir of crickets]
Each delusional speaker outside the Japanese Consulate focused on the U.S. joining those countries that have disarmed or simply don’t have Nukes (yet).  13962698_1262222527129312_1089117670503828218_nDefense is a Crime. Peace through Disarmament! No Nukes. No Way. No How!

In the spirit of “NO MORE WAR”, there were plenty of hootenanny songs, as well as speeches. “Gonna lay down my sword and shield.” Okay. “Ain’t gonna study war no more, no more.” Again, okay….

And pithy anti-war memes.War is the Defeat of Humanity”, “WAR is NEVER the Answer”, “Peace Demands Action”, “Make Food Not War” , “BE HUMAN” and Apologize!

The most dynamic religion of the last hundred years has been leftism. Not Christianity and not Islam. Leftism.

Leftism has taken over the world’s leading educational institutions, the world’s news media, the world’s popular entertainment, and it has influenced Christianity (and Judaism) far more than Christianity (or Judaism) has influenced anything.

The pithiness continued with, People apologize cause governments can’t. It’s complicated.”, “DISARM NOW! followed closely by …. APOLOGIZE!         The speakers were introduced by Rachel Clark: Interpreter, global coordinator and a volunteer staff member of Peace Boat US New York office. From Pax Christi, Sisters, Gwen, Jean and RoseMarie Pace; Kate Alexander, PANYS (Peace Action NY State); Alice Slater, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, a woman from the Granny Peace Brigade and a 2nd generation Hibakusha (survivor), Miss Miyako Taguchi.
Ms. Taguchi was presented with letters and flowers by the two Pax Christi Sisters, Jean and Gwen, and from Veterans For Peace, Dr. Tom Fasy, MD, a board certified pathologist with a longstanding interest in uranium toxicology.

he transcribed statements of the speakers are placed under each video at you tube. [the street noise was not always helpful due to lunch-hour cars honking]

From the very wise, Dr. Thomas Sowell:CpzPWflUIAAHj63.jpg_largeYes, ending barbarism required force. And, at war’s end, the terms of surrender, Article 9, required that the Japanese Imperial war-machine DISARM.

Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution (日本国憲法第9条 Nihonkokukenpō dai kyū-jō ?) is a clause in the national Constitution of Japan outlawing war as a means to settle international disputes involving the state. The Constitution came into effect on May 3, 1947, following World War II.

But, even the strongly worded Article 9 has gone through some changes, 70 years later, making the “pacified” Left most unhappy.

Article 9 has been re-interpreted to allow for “collective self-defense.”Japanese forces will now be able to assist the U.S. and other allies if those allies were attacked, although there would still be limits on the scope and scale of Japanese assistance …. that Japan could now shoot down a North Korean missile fired at the U.S. and provide logistical support to South Korea if Pyongyang invaded, but could not deploy Japanese troops to Korea.

Today, 71 years after the A-bombs were dropped, the Japan of the 20th and 21st century seems to be much the better for the U.S. ending that brutal war.  But, such facts revealed can be oh, so inconvenient. (click picture to enlarge the protest mega-statement)nagasaki 2Should the A-bomb, the Nuclear Bomb, never have been created? Is it possible to rid the world of Nuclear power now that it exists? Are Nuclear Bans possible? Wise? Necessary?

A Pointless Anti-Nuclear Gesture

The paradox of nukes is that they are weapons of cataclysmic destructive force at the same time that they have proven to be a guarantee of peace. As the strategist Bernard Brodie wrote at the dawn of the nuclear age: “Thus far the chief purpose of our military establishment has been to win wars. From now on its chief purpose must be to avert them.” It is thanks in part to the advent of nuclear weapons that we have averted the total wars between great powers that made the first half of the 20th century a vast killing field. The paradox of nukes is that they have proven to be a guarantee of peace.

Our allies are freaked out about the prospect of no first use. They have long relied on our nuclear umbrella, and if it is being pulled back, countries like South Korea and Japan will need to reconsider their decisions to forswear nuclear weapons. This is why no first use would contradict President Obama’s opposition to nuclear proliferation, and make Global Zero — the disarmament movement’s goal of a world free of nuclear weapons — even more of a pipe dream.

After decades of indoctrination by the Howard Zinn/Bill Ayers/Saul Alinsky-John Deweys, can we hope to take back our schools? Our media? Our governments.

Or is it too late to repair our collective psyche? Their Mission Accomplished: “America Bad.” Period.
Come November, Can America “Hope to be Great Again”? us_flag_make_america_great_again_banner-r002282b5c5274cbfa7d92dfdc00b0762_jjzey_324                               The Future.  It’s a terrible thing to waste.
