From the Left: Women’s March NYC Defends Reproductive Rights 2021

October 2, 2021. 2 pm. Foley Square.
“Build mass mobilizations as the road to victory
the real power is in the streets”
(and they weren’t just talking about abortion rights)

The Annual Women’s March drew a huge crowd of men and women (from the LEFT) focused only on Supreme Court abortion cases, so they claimed.

It was so much more than just abortion since the protestors represented the usual hard core Left, aka Communist/Socialists.

 The ‘right-wing’ bogey man motivates the crowd:

”The right wing’s self-named “vigilante justice” will not restrict its tactics to reliance on the law. This law is fascist in nature by giving all men the right to deny the rights of every woman. The only way to defeat this law is for a new women’s movement – linked to other civil rights movements, fighting by any means necessary – to give all woman the ability to retain control over their bodies and to defeat Trump’s misogynist policies.”

One-party country – no opposition – means They win/We lose.

Their dream. Our nightmare

-boy oh boy – do they HATE Texas

Independence is frowned upon … bigly.

Flickr Slide ShowPart 1 .  Repubs NOT welcome.

Convinced they are under siege, at WAR with anyone not embracing the New World Order aka Republicans, the Left’s woke/progressive plan will lead to a totalitarianism ”utopia”: the End Game.

Therefore: The RIGHT must be stopped.

.Part 2 Lots of signs (some crudely) illuminate the One Party. One Rule players.

Abortion-rights-2021.10.02

Seems the Women’s March still fears President Trump!

”…. many Trump supporters who are prepared to contest for power have a full political agenda, including driving out immigrants and minorities, subordinating all women to the whim of every man, and creating an authoritarian government with Donald Trump in charge.

We know that a majority of white voters elected Donald Trump president in 2016. Trump’s racist, misogynist, crazed cult followers are perfectly willing to do anything they can to place Donald Trump back in power, even if that means giving up their Constitutional rights and accepting fascist rule.”

The rantings of fools.
Its not just about abortion rights.
The Time is NOW to END the Tyranny of the Left.

Peoples Medical Freedom Rally – NY City Hall – Aug 9, 2021

August 9, 2021. Noon. Outside NY City Hall. The protest started with a HUGE mural of Mayor de Blasio in a Che t-shirt, holding a bloody head of a decapitated Statue of Liberty.

IMG_7520

Hundreds were there to protest a vaccine mandate for entering gyms, indoor restaurants, and entertainment venues that is set to take effect on August 16.

The Peoples' Medical Freedom Rally NYC

The messages for the Mayor included: Just say NO to Vaccine Passports and forced vaccinations. My Body My Choice.

VIDEOS: Part 1

.Part 2 – There was a heckler … Liberal Activist/Agitator and ACTOR   @Waltermasterson  dressed in medical garb while taunting the protestors, who gave it right back at him. Too bad the Mayor was in Maine vacationing, he missed all the ‘fun’ as “We will not comply!” rang outside New York City Hall. 

.See Elad Eliahu expose this fraud. [https://twitter.com/elaadeliahu/status/1427054587442249735]

.Part 3   – As I left, I heard a respectful Pledge of Allegiance with a slight alteration – to include mention of the Constitution.

And some extra info that the media and government works hard to debunk:

“The CDC is actively under counting vaccinated COVID cases. They admit that the injections do not stop transmission. They tell you that you still have to wear masks. The injections might reduce symptoms. They do not provide lasting immunity like a Polio vaccine does. We know this. This is the science. These injections are not real vaccines. We need to realize that we are mandating something during an emergency that is just a symptom-reducing treatment at best. There are other treatments, but the doctors who dare treat COVID successfully without resorting to an RNA injection are censored from the mainstream news media and internet. Their opinions are more difficult to find, but the information is out there. Actively censoring dissenting medical and scientific opinions contributes to mask and vaccine “hesitancy” and so does forcing a vaccine passport down our collective throats.”
IMG_7595
In conclusion
: What was most important to this crowd, it seemed, was that losing freedom to medical tyranny in favor of a lawsuit-free agenda favoring Big Pharma was NOT acceptable. This was a point made by a politically diverse crowd. Some agreed with taking the injections and wearing masks, and some disagreed. Some were conservative, some were liberal, a diverse array of pandemic opinions and political views. All agreed with “My Body My Choice”. And said NO to mandating injections and masks and vaccine passports.

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]

VIDEO FROM UK – London, between St James Park and Parliament Square.

Flickr Slide show Foley Square

IMG_6134

. 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.

NYC (Socialists) Put the Far Right “On Notice” (MAGA FREE)

Nov. 1, 2020. The Refuse Fascism Soc/Marxist /Fasiciti, looking for an excuse to protest and march, met in Madison Square Park at 11 am.

Their bravado as always proclaimed SOCIALISM to be the solution to all the problems in the WORLD.

NYC must be MAGA FREE, cause the DEVIL is Donald J. Trump. ( her hat says Third Wife)

The speakers hit us with the usual hateful agitprop and the very Gay “Sing Out Louise” Chorus sang their playful hate with much glee.

Before they marched, they claimed to be tracking the Republican caravans and would “brilliantly” confront them as they did the previous week end in Times Sq. However, the Repubs kept the caravans so secret that many Republicans couldn’t even find them.

As for the March of the Socialists, the enemedia claimed there were 300 socialists who marched out of the park and toward the Hudson. Maybe about 75-100. Certainly NOT 300.

Since there was no caravan to intercept, the anarchists chose to rumble with the police. Anything for a photo-op. I think even the police expected this to be a bigger event as there were way too many police for the actual amount of protestors, who had NOTHING and no one to protest (except the police)

Tomorrow, November 3, there will be chaos. They are planning on it. They said so in their speeches. Feeling their oats and ready to attack. G-d help us all.

Will the Socialists steal the election, as planned, cause only Socialism can save the world from the nightmare of 4 more years of Trump.

 The day of reckoning is upon us.

Addendum: Links to reports and videos of the march after they left the park.

NYPD arrested a reporter at the MAGA caravan counter protest at 10th Ave. and 24th St. The journalist has a press badge and a camera. The crowd can be heard pointing out he’s a reporter as police throw him to the ground and cuff him. The reporter that NYPD arrested is a woman. We apologize for mis-gendering her in the original post. [NYC Protest Updates 2020]

Found the WHITE fedora at the protest in the park.

Arrested in the video below – you can see her down on the ground- white fedora

The crowd of about 300 protesters is aggravated by the arrest of a journalist. Police shout “hold the line” and NYPD and protesters push against each other. More arrests underway.”(no way were they 300)

See Videos at link: [https://twitter.com/i/status/1322962038650535937]

Even BLM leader, “Hawk” Newsome, was arrested: [NY Post]

[NYC Protest Updates 2020] Amazingly even the reporters at the NY Post embellished their story with incorrect info.

“On Sunday, anti-Trump protesters had confronted pro-Trump caravans near Madison Square Park as supporters of the president took to streets and highways across the New York region ahead of Tuesday’s presidential election.” [By Tina Moore and Natalie Musumeci] (I was there, they confronted no one)

The Gothamist got the story CORRECT:

“Around 100 demonstrators initially gathered in Madison Square Park to confront caravans of Trump supporters, who were expected to drive through Manhattan. The group marched from the park to the West Side Highway, where they’d heard one of the Trump caravans was slated to pass by, but they never showed up.” [The Gothamist]

Apparently the MAGA caravan was warned by the NYPD to stay away. (according to NYC Protest Updates 2020)

Links to some of the Sunday caravans that DID happen:“The group planned on having a rally at an undisclosed location. No location was given to avoid any issues with counter-protesters.” (The Yeshiva World) and also (The Yeshiva World) [The Gothamist report with pictures of caravans]

Ending with another twitter quote from the best video all day:  “This is the most badass thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Go Texas.

[https://twitter.com/i/status/1322478395582750720]

Contrary to what the baby Biden Dems have attempted to pass off as truth, is their bus were being ESCORTED out of town. No one was trying to run the bus off the road. Really enjoyed the flags waving in the wind on all sides of that bus (The Dems did NOT)

Times Square ART: Love is the Answer, We are All in this Together ad nauseum

As the election looms: ‘Love is the Answer; We are all in this together”

Found these bill boards of Mr Brainwash posted at the corner of 7th Ave and 42nd Street for at least the summer months. They were there for a long haul.

Even though the art of Mr Brainwash depicts a message of love – given to the city of New York the message fell on what was certainly NOT a Summer of LOVE as BLM and Antifa looted, burned and destroyed much of the city. BUT NYC patriots are fighting back (Thank G-d) … Thank yous go to Operation Flag Drop and Dion Cini …

Still, NYC is never subtle. Promoting the ridiculous “Don’t Be Afraid of Anyone” (Embrace The Absurd) campaigns that dragged on for a couple of years.(compliments of the progs in-office)

Only recently replaced by another VOTE VOTE VOTE campaign.

This reminded me of the VOTE TWICE message found at the GAP store in Times Square (20o8). A campaign that rolls on and on each election…

A Vote Twice 2008 campaign. (Seen in the jar and on the T-shirt) Guess Obama/ Biden needed the extra help. But, has that duplicitous campaign ended? (Not likely)

As for the Mr Brainwash ads, seems  the premiere was in July –  29th July, 2020.

“LOVE is the Answer” simply reduces life in NYC to one big empty cliche. No real solution offered to life’s travails.

And, WHO is Mr. Brainwash. Why did he merit such a prominent intersection, for so long? [pacific press agency]

Thierry Guetta was featured in Banksy documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop” in SOHO New York City NYC( 06/30/2020)

Never Never Give Up! by Mr. Brainwash

MBW Never Never Give Up! 2017

(photo property of Guy Hepner)

“The work of Mr. Brainwash is rooted in pop art. Mr. Brainwash looks to art and entertainment as the subjects of his work. Mr. Brainwash uses pop art that includes artistic tradition and even prior pop art as the subject of his work.

Mr. Brainwash (MBW) is the pseudonym for the graffiti street artist Thierry Guetta. Mr. Brainwash was born in France in 1966. Rising to prominence due to a heavily hyped exhibition and a Banksy-directed documentary entitled, “Exit Through the Gift Shop,”

Originally a video-grapher, Mr. Brainwash began his career in 1999 documenting the lives and artwork of various graffiti street artists such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey.  Mr. Brainwash’s graffiti-styled art has continued to garner recognition from art collectors and street art enthusiasts alike.

On a visit to France, Guetta filmed his cousin, the street artist Space Invader. The experience changed Guetta’s life, he became fascinated with the role of street art in modern culture.

After dabbling, his first show, “Life is Beautiful,” received positive reviews, although Guetta’s team ended up making key gallery decisions while Guetta played the role of the hype man by calling in favors from Fairey, Banksy and other artists.

Guetta’s restlessness translated into an enormous art show with hundreds of pieces, created by a team of graphic designers under Guetta’s guidance. His work is a cavalcade of styles, themes and subjects, many of them borrowed from other artists.”

So, it would  seem it took a TEAM of designers to borrow and create, yet One Man gets the credit: M. Guetta aka Mr Brainwash. Whatever.

NYC is such a tool, never passing up an opportunity to SPREAD THE LOVE.

And that they did – with no commitment to any real peace and love.

Blue Dinos good/ Red Dinos bad. “Prehistoric creatures demonstrate how everyday people can mitigate a Climate and Ecological Disaster” (video 2 – The Play)

A meteor is going to hit the earth. How to save humanity. “Why is a solution so difficult to find“. (video 3, at 25 seconds, speaker presents solution to intersectional crisis)

In conclusion, it will take a Citizen’s Assembly where the PEOPLE assemble a plan: Power to the People!

NYC Progressives say NO! #STOP Cuomo Cuts

NYC Progressives SAY NO: Rally Against Cuomo’s Cuts
Tuesday, September 08, 2020 5:00 PM
Governor Cuomo’s NYC Office 633 Third Avenue, New York

They claim the reasons children-of-color (in particular black children) are not getting a FAIR education is all about racism. “Greed. Billionaires and privileged WHITE people.” They asked many times, “Is that Fair? Is that Equity?

[Action Network seemed to be the organizing umbrella]

Part 1 Video:

Flickr Slide Show: Outside Gov. Cuomo’s NYC office.
“Governor Cuomo is not a champion for our communities, specifically black, brown, and low-income communities. We cannot stand back and watch Cuomo rob our communities of the funds and resources they desperately need …”

IMG_4384

“Recently, the New York State budget office informed school districts statewide that it was temporarily withholding 20 percent of the State’s payments. Statewide, New York’s schools are missing out on $5 billion in state aid. For New York State to intentionally hold back 20 percent of state funding for public education at any time is unconscionable; to do so now, weeks before schools are set to reopen amidst a pandemic is a direct attack on the safety of students, educators, and our communities.”

Part 2 Video: A 16 years old student addressed the crowd outside Gov. Cuomo’s NYC office.

“Governor Cuomo is not a champion for our communities, specifically black, brown, and low-income communities. We cannot stand back and watch Cuomo rob our communities of the funds and resources they desperately need amidst a global pandemic and growing inequities. If Cuomo successfully withholds the 20% of state aid in this moment, we will be reeling from the impacts of this decision for years.”

“Let’s show the governor that NYC says NO to any cut to our education budgets! We need more, not less!”

Demands:  
1)The release of the 20% state aid that is being withheld by the Governor currently.
2)To demand that the state utilize the rainy day funds to fill any gaps in the state budget and to stop any potential cuts to the education budget.
3)To demand that the state legislature pass S7378 to tax the rich and generate the revenue needed to fully fund our schools.

Together, we will win!

Democrat Socialists Demand Safe Schools for BLACK & BROWN STUDENTS only!

Sept 4, 2020 Foley Square NYC.
FUND OUR SCHOOLS!!
OUR BLACK AND BROWN STUDENTS MATTER!!
The reason for this warning, there were two new hard core groups that were gathering at 6 pm. (The African Black Panther Party; United Panther Movement) They proceeded to riot (led by rich WHITE 20 yrs olds) causing $100,000 damage as they rioted in the street going up town from Foley.

This Safe Schools Rally was not a riot. Just the usual Democrat/Socialists ranting on and on about greedy RICH white folk.

 Flickr Slide Show : The teachers UNIONS were threatening Governor  Cuomo with a NO Show for work on Tuesday Sept 8th, 2020. Their complaints and concerns focused on black and brown students.  Not the privileged white students.

IMG_4165

.Videos Part 1 – Chants. Always starting with chants. (If we don’t get it shut it down) @SingSolidarity led the crowd “Marching off to Freedom Land”

Part 2 – Jabari Brisport newly elected Democrat SOCIALIST to NY State Senate.

“I am proud of my union and I want us to sit in our power. Demand that there is a nurse in every school; that every school has a decent ventilation system… those are bare minimum demands for the health crisis we’re living in@JabariBrisport

Part 3 “Only When it’s SAFE“. Chanting is de rigueur.  “People want to know WHO we are.”  “We Want Safe Schools” (etc)

PERHAPS it’s time to get rid of Critical Race Theory. Then maybe ALL students will MATTER.

Take that leftist Critical Race Theory garbage out of our schools too. They are teaching children to hate each other based on race. All that “white privileged” nonsense is not only false it’s POISON. People are literally being brainwashed to hate white people.. it’s EVIL

Critical race theory is the greatest threat to western civilization and it’s made its way into the US federal government, the military, and the justice system.” Ian Miles Cheong @stillgray [Melissa Tate@TheRightMelissa]

Along with their obvious racism, it was made clear they are threatening to “shut it down” if we don’t get Safe Schools.

NYC teachers, still waiting for ventilation reports, get ready to head back to classrooms

On Friday, a spokesperson for City Hall said that deadline  (Sept 4) would not be met, potentially setting up teachers to return to their campuses  (in every one of the city’s 56,000 class rooms) with little information about whether the air is safe.

It remains unclear how either the city or the unions are determining ventilation is safe before staff and students return to buildings, which has not helped to build trust.” [Chalk Beat]

Guess we will see – soon- if they will follow through on that threat since students are set to report to class on Sept 21.

Red Bill De Blasio’s legacy : NYC’s Homeless and the never ending lock down

August 29, 2020. “Moscow on the Hudson” The Upper West side of Manhattan where UWS libs ELECTED Mayor “Red Bill”DeBlasio: TWICE. But now, after 6 months of a forced lock down that has fueled the homeless population, many of these progressive libs have become disenchanted. NIMBY is their battle cry.

 The situation morphed into YIMBY Libs vs NIMBY Libs.
(However, the NIMBYS were not on the side of the angels.)

[NY POST By Karol Markowicz] August 29, 2020

“The Upper West Side has been abuzz for weeks about the relocation of a number of homeless men to various hotels in the neighborhood. Many of the men are sex offenders and drug addicts. They aren’t receiving the more intensive services they need and the neighborhood has seen a steep decline in safety.

The newly formed group Upper West Siders for a Compassionate, Safe and Equitable Community, which wrote welcome messages in chalk outside the Lucerne. […] also started an online petition at Change.org  […] imploring neighbors worried about their personal safety — patrolling the streets to discourage midday open drug use and flashing  — to stop being so mean.
