World Wide Rally for Freedom from Faucism NYC Foley Sq

It’s time to “choose freedom over faucism.” (twitter)

On May 15, 2021, there were demonstrations in multiple cities across the U.S. to denounce restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic and their impact on civil liberties.

A Worldwide Rally For FREEDOM demanding an end to restrictions and lies, never to return. Truth over Fear.

This crowd of freedom-lovers met across from the NYC’s famed court house. They were friendly, yet determined to fight back against the lies.

Fear is not the answer. Truth is the new normal.

People are angry everywhere, denouncing the restrictions imposed during the Chinese virus pandemic and the impact it has had on civil liberties world-wide. [Guarda]

. Foley Square was alive with peaceful but firm opposition to the disinformation that fed to a locked-down public and clearly did not support forced vaccination.

With Dr. Fauci’s emails recently released, the man behind the curtain has been exposed as the LIAR he has been all along.

 “… a Freedom of Information Act request led to a trove of emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci being released to public view. And that view, stretching back to early 2020, is a doozy. “[NY Post]

Fauci says he was ‘not convinced’ that COVID developed naturally. He just kept it a secret. [NY Post]

What we suspected from the beginning was confirmed when Anthony Fauci’s emails were released.

He knew that lock downs weren’t scientific.

He knew that masks mostly didn’t work to stop the spread of the China Virus.

He knew that it likely came from a lab.

He lied about all these things … [Dr Paul Gosar]

Perhaps this will bring an end to the MSM cover-up.

Fauci ruined lives – and the economy – world-wide. He was given too much power because the Demo-left, desperate to destroy President Trump, cared not if people DIED.

Fauci lied. People DIED

Keep an open mind and go after the truth“, said Fauci.  An obscene cover as he defended China.

This strange little man and his never-ending flip-flops made him a media HERO. [NY Post]

“Prominent NYC scientist backtracks on ‘natural origin’ of COVID-19” [NY Post]

“Dr. Fauci  …  should be fired today and not allowed anywhere near our nation’s health policy ever again. The American people also need to wake up to what this huckster and charlatan pulled over on them and vow to never, ever let it happen again.” [NY Post]

Fauci should pay for his crimes against humanity.

Lamis Deek rants as Free “palestine” MOB takes to NYC Streets

 May 18, 2021. NYC


As the Muslim anti-Jewish, anti-Israel MOB took to the streets (filmed by Freedom News TV Lamis Deek (attorney) ranted against Israel. The Big LIE: they must defend against the Jews of Israel. And, as usual, ‘pali’ violence took to the streets of Manhattan  … to the droning of  TAKBIR TAKBIR (allahu akbar).

This was NOT a ”we want to live in peace’‘ with Israel chant – it is a WAR cry; a warning to the world (aka ummah):

“OUR god is greater than your god”

Having observed Deek for years, this is not a muslima preaching peaceful resolution from the sidelines. A self-described Human Rights Attorney, Activist, Strategist, Crisis Mgm, she easily manipulates a controlled chaos; always in-charge of the crowd  … and the agitprop.

 “We say again, ‘What happened in Palestine this month is irreversible. Palestinians will either rise up against the impending abductions and torture in 48, escalated military violence and torture in WB, genocide in Gaza, and see liberation Or face death.’ No choice now.” (Lamis Deek) 

In the Freedom News TV video, Lamis spews her lies. Transcription begins at (:08) in edited clip below [Thanks to Sara S for assisting with transcription)

(:08)“… it’s not sustainable to keep from being killed quietly; to be put on a counted diet quietly; to be ethnically cleansed as our children are kidnapped quietly. And now is the time when they said collectively, from the green line, from west bank and from Chazid (?). Please no more.

We need a meaningful system of protection by International Law. Colonized and occupied people are entitled to defend against war crimes and crimes against humanity. Everything I’ve described is illegal activity by the Israeli government.

And so they are saying, “We want to protect ourselves from this pattern, this holding pattern of Israeli violence and palestinian response. And the only way to do that is for us, number one, to print up a meaningful defense system and, number two, to call upon the world to dismantle Israeli nuclear weapons; to dismantle apartheid and to dismantle settler ethnic cleansing. (1:09)

We saw some of these people with American accents on the news. People who are from here, getting on planes and going to engage in armed home-invasions. This is a crime, it’s a felony under state and federal law.

Why is it that we are allowing U.S. citizens to engage in this on a level that arises to both war crimes and crimes against humanity. (1:31) We need to stop them here. We need to impose immediate embargo, any delay is a condemnation of genocide against palestinians.

The world is rising up.

The politicians have to respond and all of us have to do our part, including the media. When you talk about palestine, talk about how long we were quiet before Hamas filed (?) and fired a rocket. Talk about how many of our children were killed and tortured. (1:59)

My own cousin was murdered just weeks ago. 16 years old. Nobody talks about them until palestinians respond. The only way for palestinians to not fire rockets is to stop Israeli violence.

The world is clear, we cannot be hidden anymore. We are asking, there is no room for apartheid and racial supremacy in New York. We are all one but we must act like it and to call the world to action; engage in strikes; be honest and forthright. This is an historic moment.

If you are not standing up now for the liberation and for equality and for freedom and the safety of a people who have endured so much, you are on the wrong side of history. You will be recorded in history books and you have done a disservice to global morality. (2:43)” [end transcription]

FACT: The history books rewritten by the aggressors, go unchallenged by the media. An outrage. A criminal act, to erase history.

Rally for Israel’s Right to DEFEND Attacked in Times Sq

May 20, 2021. 5:30 pm -Times Sq (aka Duffy Sq).

Rally to Support Israel’s Right to DEFEND 

But, this peaceful rally was attacked by a mob of ‘palis’ .

The Big Lie, that they are “PEACEFUL” ‘fakestinians’,was exposed. This is a WAR to get rid of the Jews, everywhere; not just in Israel.

The NYPD attempted to protect the Support Israel Rally from the insane ‘palis’.


Smoke bombs, fist fights, water bottles lobbed across the square. The mayhem left many damaged chairs and tables, all that was in the path of these ‘pali’ marauders.

They respect no one.

Stolen flags was a favorite ‘sport’.

But, so were the arrests (I read there were as many as 25 arrests). Fun watching them marched through the crowd

At first the police didn’t manage these 5 boys appropriately as they were causing confrontations, pushing and arguing through the crowd. (It seemed to be their ‘assignment’.)

These 5 pre-teens were annoyed when officers finally pulled them out of the crowd to cause less confusion. But, not before the boy in white stole an Israeli flag, spearheading the first physical confrontation.

And this lovely boy, not liking what she said, told a Jewish woman he was going to punch her out.

You tube videos (6 short vids)  Vid 1:  This was intended to be a peaceful rally in Support of Israel’s Right to Defend. I was told that the NYPD had not felt any extra protection would be needed. But, there was nothing peaceful in the ‘pali’ assaults against the pro-Israel rally. The extra protection up front would have been nice.

Vid 2: One particular debater went on for quite awhile about “genocide’. She screamed, “You’re killing my people” and, “We have only rocks to defend ourselves.” Also, she was very annoyed by the “Support Israel” group’s dancing and singing …. while her people were dying.

Vid 3 : Chanting, singing and debating before the “pali” assaults took off.

Vid 4 : As both sides squared off, police attempted to contain the “palis”. But, they stole more Israeli flags anyway, threw smoke canisters and eventually, “breached the barricades.”

Vid 5 :  Both sides were face to face at one point, way too close for comfort.

Vid 6 : Police continued to gain some control by keeping the “palis” separate, but as the mess in Duffy reveals, that was ultimately a big fail.

Flickr slide shows: Part 1, a peaceful rally was ATTACKED in Times Square. Part 2 is a look at the “palis” and the NYPD. Eventually there were many “pali” arrests.

IMG_6215

Part 2 Flickr is a look at the “palis” including 5 pre-teen males. Not sure what the fake ACLU protest monitor was doing. I saw at least one wandering uselessly as usual.

IMG_6238

What followed the so called conclusion to the Duffy Square assaults was more assaults throughout the city.

..This next attack was after the rally for Israel. [NY POST attack] With a disgusting response from the perpetrator who claimed he was the victim. [NY POST no remorse]

And then there was an explosive device of some sort thrown at pedestrians in the Diamond District [Yeshiva World] (explosion is at approx 1:44)

Saturday, the 22nd, was a different story. In Sunnyside, Queens  “Thousands of protesters marched from Sunnyside to Astoria Queens in a large demonstration in support of Palestine on Saturday. Crowd waved flags, rode on cars, held signs and chanted as they marched in Astoria.” Video by @NewYorkCityPeople @ScooterCasterNY and @queensnewsjunkie [https://t.co/xv1JfNWVqL] [https://twitter.com/i/status/1396245325204103169]

No CONFLICTS according to a very silent press. However, there was this video from Elad Eliahu[@elaadeliahu] of the not so peaceful  ‘palis’ : A Jewish Trans Person was assaulted at the Nakba Free Palestine protest in Bay Ridge Saturday, after saying “I’m not a Zionist” by a man draping a palestinian flag, the assaulter was allowed to run off by others. This story has been suppressed by local activist reporters“. (crickets)

Sadly,  the NYPD , overwhelmed by the “palis”, has advised NYC JEWS to be safe and stay home. If this is what comes of these attacks, isolation and fear? If so, the TERRORISTS will have won.

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)

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.

“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.”
