Defund NYPD at Foley Sq (& The COURTHOUSE BLM graffiti ‘mural’)

So much has been happening. Most recently, on July 13, 2020, there was a Prayer Event in support of the NYPD that began in Brooklyn. They then walked the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan’s City Hall.

The BLM THUGS, still occupying City Hall Park, blocked the bridge and attacked the police -with chains- leaving them bloodied.  (They also attacked those who were in the prayer walk.)  [NY Post]


Thugs destroying the city.  Yet, every week MAYOR deBlasio seems incapable of ending the Occupy  siege.

July 3rd was a small gathering of local Marxists demanding DEFUND the NYPD. But its seems no gathering is too small to maintain the revolution.

Also, at Foley Square, I found Center Street, in front of the court house, blocked off . Perhaps, to protect the buildings from Occupy anarchists. (or not)

Nope. The CITY was PAINTING another mayor-sanctioned BLM graffiti mural.
(Seems to have snuck in – announced on July 6)

Went back on July 11 to get pictures of their finished handiwork. (slide show)

Meanwhile, back to July 3rd. The DEFUND the NYPD protest had a familiar ring to it: “Capitalism bad. Socialism good. … the NYPD – very, very  bad.

BLACK Panthers, A-OK.

“Defund the NYPD – Fight Back with an ECRB”! was hosted by Hold Police Accountable with an Elected Civilian Review Board

“The NYPD must not only be defunded, they must be held accountable for their crimes! We are calling for:

An elected board from the community with the power to fire cops and hold police accountable

An NYC Independent prosecutor to prosecute criminal cases completely independent of the District Attorney’s office

Once established, an opening of all past cases of police murder and violence to win justice for families. Stand with the families who have lost loved ones to the NYPD, advocates and organizations and join us in calling for an Elected Civilian Review Board and Independent Prosecutor NOW!”

It was an  uneventful protest.

Useless noise whose purpose was keeping their Soc/Commie members busy with incessant protests:

The police didn’t even bother to show up for this one.

July 3, 2020 -Occupy City Hall – a Shanty Town’s Decay

July 3, 2020. Returning to Occupy City Hall, found a disgusting shanty town, no longer quaint, just dirty; a mess.

Also, some new signs, “Do Not Film or take pictures of Occupy Faces”

This is for their SAFETY, they say,  from police.

Also, new, no part of these public buildings or sidewalks has not been defaced. Occupy City Hall is befouled by graffiti.

The Mayor, sort of whimpered that this graffiti was unfortunate, and then: SILENCE.

PROFANITY was welcomed  (of course)

The encampment was trashed.

Video Part 1 – Sitting a-top their old Mexican style “Vote Bus”, a cheeky singer serenaded the crowd with “My Favorite Things”. (definitely NOT what I expected) with a pithy new lyric, “Then I don’t FEAR so bad.

Her song was followed by a rude speech to the NYPD officers standing-watch across Chambers St.  FEAR! “You about to Lose your Job!” and “This is BLACK JOY!”

Fear the occupiers. For sure.  Since this sign encouraged exposing personal info of the police officers.

The Occupy residents still don’t have much to do. They sit. lay around. (trying to stay dry since the rains were a deluge) That first week they very busy. painting. vandalizing. harassing. But, now. it was VERY quiet. Still plenty of food. and ice. and water. And someone is paying to have their laundry picked up and delivered. (wow)

Video Part 2. Watched these BLM thugs harass the cops who stood quietly against the trashed federal building. Fearless thuggery. They know they can be as rude and as a threatening as they like. DeBlasio said Hands Off. This is WRONG.

An appalling abuse of public property. Because they are “progressives”. Socialists. Marxists. So, what do New Yorkers do? To Fight Back? They are MOVING OUT! Especially the moneyed. Not just the regular folk who have lost their jobs. New York City is on its way to being another DETROIT.

Who would have thought this to be our future.

Queer Liberation March joins BLM to Protest NYPD

June 28, 2020.  Foley Square


“No permission” was asked nor expected for them to have a protest/march. (They acknowledged proudly)

A HUGE crowd of disaffected gays and people of color marched against Police Brutality.

The police waited patiently, as the crowd gathered to march; with lots of nasty political posturing.

Despite the snarky signs and banners, the police were very laid back.

The march was HUGE. They never stopped arriving at Foley.(Organizers estimated 50,000 protesters attended the march) To their credit, the police quietly walked the protest through lower Manhattan to Washington Square.

Once evening arrived, however, the peaceful march behaved disgracefully towards the NYPD. Under shade of night, all bets of peaceful were off.

“The second annual event for the Reclaim Pride Coalition.  When the marchers arrived at their final destination — a rally in Washington Square Park — they allegedly faced police brutality, according to witnesses and march organizers…. the New York City Police Department confirmed three people were arrested for allegedly assaulting officers, adding that the use of pepper spray and force on protesters transpired after cops tried to arrest one of them for allegedly vandalizing a police vehicle.” [NBC News] [NY Post

Apparently the city cannot control these protests. They protest, march, hang-out (forget social distancing), unchecked; a PRIVILEGE denied to the average citizens who would like to go to church, have a picnic, and WORK!

Meanwhile, the PRIVILEGED Gay/BLM parade-march insist THEY have it bad Living in America.

Marxists Occupy City Hall, refuse to leave: where’s Mayor “Red Bill”?

The Revolution leading towards a United States of Socialism has many demands. (and loves to curse)
Nurtured in Occupy Villages, that spring up predictably, they :  Appear to be spontaneous. Peaceful. Temporary. Then change your collective minds. Take to the streets from Occupy base camp. Game ON!

Which brings me to the New York Occupy City Hall Encampment. It was suppose to end on June 30th, after the City Council vote to “Defund the NYPD“.

July 1, 2020, there was now no doubt, the anarchists were not leaving. They will never be satisfied.The now claim this autonomous zone to be untouchable.

Once the Occupy City Hall anarchists took over this public space –  on June 23 – it grew quickly. The disaffected youth rushed to be a part of a revolution.

According to their signs, it’s about so much more than just “defunding”.

No matter the issues, hundreds gathered supposedly to support the Black Lives Matter charade. That was enough to keep the fervor at a pitch.

On Friday, June 26, 2020, I dropped by to take a look at the camp site. 10 years after covering Occupy Wall Street, I wandered through this newest village of Marxist occupiers.  Mayor “Red Bill” de Blasio has always been enthralled with Communism  so he encouraged this “peaceful” encampment to take root.

The necessary participants: disaffected twenty somethings. Looking for a life. a family . a community. Creating little towns with libraries, bodegas, first aid stations, gardens and the very necessary “learning circles”where they willingly listen to hours of indoctrination.

And food. there was plenty of FREE food (donated to the collective).

Throw in, camping in squalor: Happy campers.

June 30th arrived and the “village” was no longer temporary, nor peaceful. In the very early morning hours of the 30th, the day of the City Council vote, the defacing of public property ended all pretense.  The police were now dealing with the hard core resistance.

On the 26th, I overheard a speaker in the learning circle , give this outrageous advice: If you have a job, QUIT YER JOB!

This is how to create a generation lost to Marxism. Dependent. Isolated. Cared for by the collective

Without question, they were ready to storm the streets and deface buildings. Mayor “Red Bill” must be so proud (or maybe not)  [link to UPI photo]

JUNETEENTH NYC 2020- the Marxist Revolution against America continues

June 19, 2020. New York City Hall

If only these protest marches mended relationships. Instead: they divide. BLM: Pan-Africanism, Marxism, leads the marchers towards a race war.

Fearful of being called racists, white corporations, businesses, schools, citizens all carefully repeat the party line: AmeriKKa is a racist imperialist country without redemption.

The Marxist Juneteenth leaders. Unapologetic racists. Anti-capitalists. At WAR with America. “White America”.  [interesting article against BLM from Mohammad Ali Jr]

Nothing good will come from supporting this Marxist, Pan-African insurgency. Everyone will lose – no matter your race – once they succeed. (Even successful blacks are considered their enemy)

They ended the short march at the African Burial Ground.

Speakers weren’t amplified. Very few could hear them (though no one seemed to care) So I gathered some pan-African quotes on-line:

“A win by African people anywhere is a win for African people everywhere. What is a win? The unseating of neo-colonial dictators who help multi-national companies loot the wealth which belongs to all of us.

Malcolm X was a pan-Africanist. Stokely Carmichael (Blacks must unite. Fight Capitalism) To be a revolutionary African in the 21st Century is to be a Pan-African revolutionary. Revolutionary Pan-Africanists seek to destroy America. (Black Marxist-Leninist-Maoist)

… This is taught in our schools…

Pan-Africanists fight for socialism, because it is a scientific method for liberating the masses of our people and meeting their material needs, along with liberating them from the clutches of feudalism, bureaucrat-capitalism, and imperialism on the Continent.

Capitalism must be rooted out in all its forms and we must see socialism in our lifetime.The principal enemy of the world’s people today is the Yankee imperialist. To bring down this massive beast requires thousands of cuts made everywhere it has tentacles.”  Quotes from [Medium.com]

The BLM movement unequivocally means Death to America.

Video Part 2  The march to Foley Sq and the African Burial Ground.

On a side note, Linda Sarsour (well known anti-Zionist racist) held a Juneteenth Day of Action advertised as  “Open to All, Minus Cops and Zionists” [United With Israel]

Poster for  ‘no Zionists allowed’ event in New York.

BLM co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, is a known Marxist:

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report. (Cullers)protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology.

“In 1968, Mann was a coordinator for Students for a Democratic Society, from which a more radical wing –- the Weather Underground — was splintered the following year.It was led by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, who called for “direct action” over civil disobedience, seeking the overthrow of the US government.” [NY Post]

Yet all of this facts are ignored as White Fear bows to the Marxist thugs:

“Days after Gov. Cuomo declared June 19th a New York holiday this year in recognition of the Juneteenth commemoration, organizers hit the streets vowing to move forward and cash in on the momentum generated by protests from coast to coast.” [NY Daily News]

June 19 – JusticeForGeorgeNYC – advise for White People

“For any #WhitePeople who have been lamenting how difficult they find it to get involved in addressing American #racism the easiest answer in the world is to turn to Black #organizers and do what they tell you THEY need you to do. Doing this, however, requires humility.”

“We here not just to march … we out here for a revolution!”

“We shoot racists” Are we surprised? We shouldn’t be.

Socialists’ General Strike. May Day 2020: DON’T WORK!

Tomorrow is May Day 2020. A favorite of the Communist insurgents. But, how will they manage their yearly protests since the tyrannical Governor CUOMO  has shut down our once vibrant city?

What I have managed to cull so far is a National STRIKE against WORKING and paying rent (which is an issue of import for everyone …since none but a few ESSENTIALS are allowed to earn an income)

So, for the curious, the latest info from the Socialist / Marxist left who never cease to work the proletariat towards the next uprising.

“This is the launch video for General Strike 2020. We are working to unite the working class by showing individuals the path to organization and getting those organizations working together.” genstrike.org

FYI: YOU TUBE leaves this video up. Socialism apparently does not violate their community standards.

The ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic is exposing critical flaws in the institutions we rely on for our daily lives. The wealthiest nations in the world are failing to protect citizens from this deadly disease, shamelessly neglecting the needs of the people. In the USA, too little is being done too late to protect us from the disease. Countless working poor people are having to go to work with symptoms because we can’t afford to take time off.

The federal government has been slow to respond, and the stimulus packages they have cobbled together are woefully inadequate to protect the most vulnerable members of our society.

President Trump and capitalists across the country are expressing interest in workers going back to their jobs even before the pandemic is safely dealt with, callously proving that they put their own profits ahead of the lives and well being of the working class.

This situation is, quite simply, unsustainable.

People are dying, and the wealthy elites are demonstrating that they value their profits more than our lives.

We welcome all exploited members of society: workers, the disabled, LGBTQ+, indigenous people, the neuro divergent, the mentally ill, and anyone else who is suffering without adequate relief through this pandemic.”  genstrike.org 

Our rallying cry: “DO NOT ACT ALONE.”

Now, on to the Rent Strike.

“…. there’s a possibility that some strikers will be evicted once New York’s moratorium is lifted in late June.

The strikers are demanding that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo cancel rent and mortgage payments for four months or the duration of the coronavirus pandemic, whichever is longer. That would be a significant escalation from the state’s current solution: a moratorium on evictions, which is set to end June 20. And it’s a recognition that the economy could remain in crisis for years.”

If the CITY doesn’t ease the TAXATION of the landlords, they will take it out on the tenants. And  who will they rent to, after these WRONGFUL evictions?

Screen-Shot-2020-04-30-at-1.09.09-PM.png

“On Monday, the strikers got a high-profile supporter: “People can’t pay,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the progressive Democrat from the Bronx, who is co-sponsoring a national bill to cancel rent … ” [Vice]

[https://www.socialistalternative.org/2020/04/08/rent-strike-may-1-cant-pay-wont-pay/]

“In this upside down world, many workers will ask, “Why have I for decades been giving the landlord half my paycheck every week? It’s almost feudal.” This is capitalism in the twenty-first century.

We need a nationwide rent strike on May 1 not only to take urgent action in this crisis, but also to build the fight for a socialist world.”

  • Can’t pay! Won’t pay! For a nationwide mass rent strike on May 1
  • A complete national moratorium on all evictions and foreclosure proceedings nationally
  • End all rent and mortgage payments during the crisis
  • No rent increases during 2020!
  • Support Sanders call to pay all laid off workers their full wages
  • All workers without paid work should be eligible for monthly federal payments equivalent to a living wage of $15 an hour or $600 per week.
  • Bring the properties of the top 50 corporate landlords into democratic public ownership
  • For a massive national program to build publicly-owned, high quality social housing as part of the country’s reconstruction plan

[https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/m7qme3/new-york-city-tenants-want-the-state-to-cancel-their-rent-so-theyre-going-on-strike]

“We are working to unite workers from across the USA and around the world to stand up and fight for our own lives—from the safety of our own homes.

General Strike 2020 is calling for all workers to remain sheltered in place in accordance with current medical guidance. Additionally, we are calling for workers to participate in nationwide strikes: rent strikes, debt strikes, and labor strikes.”

We are also asking participants to hang white sheets or towels outside of their homes as a sign of solidarity.

… we are asking you to organize, participate in, and support rent strikes, tenants’ unions, and movements for a rent freeze in your local community and beyond. United in solidarity, we’ll show the elite class, landlords, and real estate developers that we will not accept the devastation of our communities in the name of short-term profit.

The insanity. The chaos. This meltdown of our city – is music to the Marxist/Socialist ears.

“…. hang white sheets or towels outside of their homes as a sign of solidarity ….”

Guess we’ll know who the Socialist/Marxist tools are.

“Womens Strike” NYC on International Women’s Day 2020

March 12-13, 2020 : The China Virus has finally given the Demo-Nazi City /State governments the opportunity to go mad across the country. Making this post on Womens’ Rights an after-thought; looking back, perhaps, on ‘better times”.

 Flash forward, the Demo-Nazis shut the economy (country) DOWN. State by State. TDS rules the media-hype regarding the China Virus resulting in businesses going under. Rents can’t be paid. Employees laid off.  Isolation. Depression. Recovery, not possible unless … with Nov 8th on the horizon … THEY HAVE A PLAN.

 The Demo-Nazis are aquiver with doomsday excitement. (That says it all)

MEANWHILE, on March 8, 2020:

International Women’s Day 2020
WHAT are they striking against
The Patriarchy?

Never heard of this SOCIALIST Holiday (originally called National Woman’s Day) with a history dating back 108 years — working its way across the continents to be GLOBAL. (SPANISH appears to be the Voice of the Women 2020)

“Ni una menos” defines itself as a “collective scream against machista violence”.

Oblivious to the illegal migrants and their rapes and murders: “This is your daily reminder that New York City released an illegal alien charged with the rape of a 13 year old girl . Their Sanctuary City policy kept him from being turned over to ICE. This is exactly what Trump was elected to fix RT if NYC should be defunded over this! Charlie Kirk @charliekirk11 (2020)

“The first glimpse of this feminist movement was in 1909, That’s when the Socialist Party of America celebrated 15,000 women who protested long work hours, low pay, and the lack of voting rights in New York City.”

“The Rapist is YOU” (Chilean Rape Chant)

“March 8th- This historical day celebrates the achievements of women all across the world… typically a day for women from all different backgrounds and cultures to band together to fight for gender parity and women’s rights. The special 2020 theme, #EachforEqual, drawing on the notion of “collective individualism.”  (there’s even a POSE)

International Women’s Day became an official holiday in Russia in 1913. On March 8, 1917 (February 23 in the former Russian calendar), tens of thousands of Russian women took to the streets demanding change.

In 1975, the United Nations officially recognized International Women’s Day, and, in 1996, began to adopt an annual theme for every year.

As for the United States, International Women’s Day isn’t recognized as an official holiday, although it’s been proposed“. [Good Housekeeping]

This is what I stayed for:

Barely Informed with Elad grabbed some fun interviews with the Socialist protestors revealing their usual mental blocks regarding the patriarchy and anti-Semite, Linda Sarsour.

Why does this  Rape Chant appeal to the American press and American Socialists? Nothing to do with American Women.

For The Curious:  The song and accompanying dance takes on the patriarchy as the cause both of violence against women and the victim shaming that often comes after. “Y la culpa no era mía, ni dónde estaba, ni cómo vestía,” they sang (“and the fault wasn’t mine, not where I was, not how I dressed”).

Un violador en tu camino” (“A rapist in your way”).

[Keep arms loose at your side, march in place to the beat for the first eight verses]
El patriarcado es un juez,
Que nos juzga por nacer
Y nuestro castigo
Es la violencia que no ves.

“Join millions of participants by wearing purple on March 8. Signifiying justice and dignity, the color purple has become an international symbol for women since the origination of purple, green, and white as a symbol of women’s equality from the Women’s Social and Political Union in the UK in 1908. (Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolises hope. White represents purity, but is no longer used due to ‘purity’ being a controversial concept.)”

“Don’t Extradite Assange!” Global Protest by NYC Marxists

Global Protest –Feb. 24, 2020- NYC
Don’t Extradite Assange!”

Julian Assange  founder of WikiLeaks
Hosted by NYC Free Assange and Big Apple Coffee Party

Juan Carlos Ruiz, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church; Larry Hamm, activist.

Join us in the worldwide Global Protest.
Join us in solidarity with NYC Free Assange

The potential chilling effect on journalists, and others, who expose official wrongdoing by publishing information disclosed to them by credible sources, could have a profound impact on the public’s right-to-know what their government is up to.

Video – Part 1 – as the protestors were setting up microphone and banners outside the British Consulate

Video Part 2- Margaret Kunstler, civil rights lawyer and co-editor of “In Defense of Julian Assange“.

Margaret Ratner Kunstler  … in 2015 and 2016, helped Assange plan his legal strategy and arrange media appearances … a 2017 direct message from Assange’s Twitter account to Donald Trump Jr., identified Kunstler as a person to contact at WikiLeaks … this has caused consternation in the left-wing legal community. Her long-time friends and associates find it unthinkable that an activist and stalwart in the civil rights bar might have aided the Trump campaign or administration, even inadvertently.” [Japan Times] Seems that isn’t of concern any more.

++  More on the Global Protests from other media++

Lawyers for the U.S. government are seeking Assange’s extradition to the United States, where he faces 18 charges; his specific criminal actions related to the release of hundreds of thousands of top-secret U.S. diplomatic cables and documents in 2010 and 2011.

Assange’s lawyer said he was the obvious symbol of all that Trump condemned… He brought American war crimes to the world. [LA Times]

Lawyers acting for the U.S. government said Assange was guilty of “pure criminality” and cannot hide behind the guise of journalist.

His actions — hacking into a U.S. Department of Justice computer system with U.S. Army intelligence analyst Bradley (Chelsea) Manning and knowingly putting people at risk of torture and death by releasing thousands of classified documents that revealed the identities of sources helping the U.S. and its allies during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; this is an ordinary criminal charge.

Journalism is not an excuse for criminality.

 Manning was convicted by court-martial under the Espionage Act and spent several years behind bars, but Assange has never faced trial. [LA Times]

BTW, at this Global Protest,
WHY: “FREE ‘Chelsea’ Manning?
Obama freed him in 2017.

Manning downloaded more than 700,000 classified documents from US military servers and passed them to WikiLeaks. [The Guardian 2013]

Manning said he attempted to contact the New York Times, and spoke to a Washington Post reporter during this period, but neither newspaper was quick to respond. So, he gave the information to WikiLeaks which went on to partner with news organizations, including the Guardian ,to share the leaked information. [NPR] [The Guardian 2017]

(Manning’s crime of espionage) was the largest compromise of classified information in the history of the United States.The names of human rights activists, journalists, religious leaders and dissidents were left unredacted in some of the material which, the prosecution argues, put them and their families at serious risk of being harmed by the oppressive governments they lived under. [LA Times]

The extradition hearing (for Assange) will continue for a week and then be placed on hold until May 18, 2020, so both sides can gather more evidence before a further three-week hearing.” [LA Times]

Leftists claim GOP Destroys Democracy at Columbus Circle : “Take it Back”!

Wed. Feb 5, 2020. Columbus Circle.
We are tired, we are angry, but we will continue to fight Trump (and the GOP) until we drive them out of office

All this wailing came from the Marxist-Socialist Left.

[Face Book] “Rise and Resist, and 1000s of New Yorkers, will take to the streets on Wednesday, February 5th, at 5:30pm; 90 minutes after the Senate is scheduled to vote on Trump’s articles of impeachment. The verdict will most likely be an acquittal, but that doesn’t mean the resistance is over.”

“We are tired, we are angry, but we will continue to fight Trump (and the GOP) until we drive them out of office.”

“This is not just about Ukraine or election interference, but about corruption and authoritarian rule.”

Tell the world we know that Trump is guilty.
That the GOP is destroying democracy.
That we need to flip the Senate.
That we need to take back our democracy.

Rise and Resist We’re not allowed to have metal poles for banners and posters (it’s a NYC law), but every march I’ve been to the Trump trolls bring gigantic banners on 10 foot tall metal poles(NOT. It’s PVC pipes) and the cops do nothing (not true). We need to see what we can get away with too! (This is a NEWBEE) 

FYI EVERYONE! The 8 arrestees from tonight’s action in Columbus Circle are at the 7th precinct on Pitt Street and Broome! PLEASE, if you have a few hours to spare tonight head down there to support these brave warriors! They need all the help we can give them! (Ridiculously unaware. The cities new law lets everyone out- even murders – the new no bail excuse to put everyone back on the streets)

.[https://youtu.be/kM8gspVOuw0] Linking to Barely Informed With Elad video. He interviews the Communist tools as they marched. It’s a little long but easily captures the indoctrination of the Marxist/Socialist Left. (some quotes follow)

Woman #1: Mitch is a Russian asset. Bernie a Socialist. She doesn’t know if Socialism leads to Communism. GOP election fraud. She: Injustice no trial. No idea if Dems doing good job in Iowa cause she’s  focusing on “OUT Now”.

Guilty as Charged chants

Guy with(GOP) Hammer/Sickle sign – GOP is selling out to Russia. Putin’s Puppet. Elad asks are GOP Commies? Do you think Communism is bad? (Silence, then a  reply) GOP sold out to Russia. Re Mueller report – the protestor claims GOP happy to receive help from Russia. (No answer re Dems – mouth agape)

Commie leader (Jay Walker) lead the “stupid maggots” chant aimed at Elad.

Guy with Sign(he’s an Aussie or Kiwi) We are in dictatorship. Repubs. Senate. Trump can do anything he wants. He’ll cancel the 2020 elections.

Elad: How is he a dictator? Man says: electoral college does not represent people. Elad: If he is a Dictator, why no wall? Man says: The people have stopped it. We need to give AID to Mexico etc. then no problems. (he claims) Democratic Socialism- Socialism – is helping poorer people.

(Woman says Elad is a troll, don’t talk to him. Man says, I know) 8:53

Man sign: No King Never a Kingdom. Says Trump like a King- a tsar- a vassal Tsar. Elad asks: Build the wall … a King would have built the wall. Man: that’s ridiculous question – they said they can do whatever they what on floor Senate- Trump disrespects law enforcement. Elad: was he honestly elected? Man: He lies- is anyone above the law- Ukraine is not about Joe or Hunter Biden- it’s a smoke screen- allegations about corruption- it’s a private business.

Woman- Repubs did not want to hear truth. (Elad asks about Bill Clinton) She doesn’t want to talk about that. Elad: How is Trump screwing country. Woman: So many ways- he ruined relationship with allies-. Elad: You don’t think America is better than others?  Woman: No.  Says there is no dictatorship – yet- Doesn’t accept 2016 results. Hillary got popular vote. Elad: You don’t like our Constitution? Woman: She’s against Electoral College- Trump is illegit. Our constitution based in racism- Electoral based on States not cities – People in cities much more aware.

Again: He’s a TROLL

Another woman: This demo being pushed into the park – police had (Marxist) demo pushed into park- Who did that!

Elad: Trump reached highest approval rating – 49%

Woman: People are remarkably ignorant – less and less educated – some are smart but vote with pocket book – others don’t understand how BAD he is making it for them

Criminal justice reform – IF he’s really done anything – he CLAIMED he did something.

And again: He’s a TROLL . Elad asks: Why am I a right wing troll?

Woman: I’m from the tribe, too (TRIBE?) You know what I mean. He’s making things worse, she says. Elad: Any anti-semites on Left  (She just can’t admit this) Woman: LINDA (Sarsour) is NOT an anti Semite. Elad: Tamika. Ilhan? Woman: They had to step down- still involved and they are NOT anti-semites.  (she asks) What did they DO? Elad: Please look it up.

Stop the cover up. Trump is guilty

Woman: Convicted of TREASON – He should be jailed – Democracy DIES. (Elad: If Trump re-elected, will that represent the country? Would he be accepted?) She: IF the  election is fair. No FOREIGN interference.  (Elad: He’s already illegit?) SHE: No, he won by illegit means. (She won’t say who she would like to win.)

SHE: Didn’t watch speech. Had a migraine. PROUD of Nancy. Elad: (on tearing speech) Was that mature?  Woman:  It was HONEST.


“Keeping America Great” means “Take it Back”. Save Democracy from the Soc/Commie/Progs on the Left. VOTE Trump 2020!

Women’s Alliance March on NYC : “Come Rise and ROAR with us” in 2020

The Women’s Alliance was one of two NYC marches planned for January 18, 2020. They announced: “The demonstration will take on a different tone than in past years as its leaders seek to turn over a new leaf with disaffected activists and groups that in recent years have cut ties with the organization.” [NBC NY]

Slogans to win friends and influence people.

The Women’s Alliance was at Columbus Circle [https://womensmarchalliance.org/]

 The Women’s Unity March, was at Foley Square. [https://www.womensmarchnyc.org]

10 am – chose Columbus Circle to catch the Chilean Rape Feminist Collective (Las Tesis) that has become all the rage.

I had readWe are partnering with other womXn’s organizations in New York City to bring this action to the uptown-based (Columbus Circle) Women’s March on Saturday, January 18.  Las Tesis performs  throughout the world, their viral anthem, “The Rapist is YOU!’. This action is for womXn-identifying folX only. We welcome our non-womXn allies to join us for the march following the action!

They welcome dyou (sort of) with images that challenged good-taste ….

Unfortunately, all I found was a women’s drum corp; couldn’t find Las Tesis.

In the distance, however, was the early bird crowd jammed close by the stage. I moved on to record their pithy signs for posterity.

Spent the next hour watching the group-lets of women (and men) marching down Central Park West.

Sign after sign advanced toward the Rise and Roar stage, having started at 72nd st.; the entry point to CPW.

Heard a couple of speakers – all ROARING as they began and ended their speeches. (lots of silly roaring) Then I caught sight of Dion Cini’s Trump 2020 flag flying high over the crowd. (Fun)

NY Lt Gov, Kathy Hochul‘s speech was cheered on by the appreciative crowd.

Once I saw the Trump 2020 flag cross over to the park side, I dropped by for a quick hello; that’s when I overheard an officer thanking Dion for his flag. (nice)

Dion,  countering the feminist lies.

Enjoyed this pro-Trump moment, before heading toward the Chilean rape marchers (I think they were finally getting a small group together)

Also, sharing the space with some NO WAR protestors.

Later I heard I had missed the SPITTER, triggered by the Trump 2020 flag. Glad to see the NYPD was not harassing Dion.

Spitting on me because of my hat & flag is now considered ‘Women’s Rights’

TRIGGERED by everything Trump.

And then there was that “Guitar Man of Central Park”, proud of his hatred for our President.  #thatguitarman  (Sad)

Final note: The announced meet-up in Times Square, where the two groups would come together – in spite of their differences – fizzled out. 43rd and 6th (not Times Sq) is where the Alliance finished their march – and dispersed.

The Foley Sq marchers did not appear in Time Sq. (So much for UNITY)

The Alliance and Unity protests, each roared loud and proud, but – in spite of the “diversity” claims – the crowd was mostly WHITE women. middle aged. moneyed. Educated women of “privilege” claiming to have suffered under some wicked patriarchy – here – in the United States. Annoying silliness, from all ages. All colors. Rude. crude. entitled.

++“2020 is the Year of the Roar! We Roar for Justice. We Roar for Peace. We Roar for Change. We Roar Equality. THE WOMEN OF NYC ARE UNITED!” ++

 “At Columbus Circle, The Women’s March Alliance also supports the ROARS of the Women’s March NYC rally taking place at Foley Square. It was a priority to bring the two marches together. Both leadership teams have been working seamlessly and cooperatively to ensure success and sisterhood going forward, continuing the tradition of marching for justice and equality.

“This will be the last March with Donald Trump in the White House (as he’ll probably be removed a few days later), so this is our biggest moment to stand up and prove we have not gone away, gotten scared, or turned our backs to the misogyny and bigotry he spews and enables.”

This Women’s March on NYC is embracing of women and our non-binary, gender-fluid, a-gender and male allies from all walks of life and experiences.

From the “NYC Women’s Unity March & Rally”: Rise and Roar 2020 (Foley Sq). “RISE with us as we rally at Foley Square and then march to Times Square to meet our sister marches as we ROAR. We must vote in November. Stay WOKE.

Foley Square – 3pm – RISE and ROAR Unite with Columbus Circle rally in Times Square. “Walking and train marches will converge as thousands of women and allies meet together under the lights of Times Square in solidarity and unity for Women’s Rights.” (DID NOT HAPPEN)

As for that that United Front: “The Best Laid Plans of Mice and WomXn, Gang aft a-gley.” Better luck next time, LadiXs.
