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!”

[https://www.facebook.com/events/194033728662616/]

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.

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.

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.

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.

Linda Sarsour: She’s baack (demands 1st amendment, peaceful assembly)

May 11, 2020/ Foley Square.
Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory lead an
“ILLEGAL” protest against police brutality.

FIRST. There were the ILLEGAL arrests for peaceful assembly on Saturday, May 9, 2020,  NINE patriots ARRESTED by the NYPD for peaceably walking – with American flags – outside NY City Hall. HOWEVER, Mayor “RED BILL “de Blasio has OUTLAWED our First Amendment right to peaceful assembly. So, on May the 9th, the NYPD were willing puppets – violating those CONSTITUTIONAL rights.

This isn’t Germany!” one yelled during the protest. The arrests come as Gov. Andrew Cuomo extended the state’s stay-at-home lockdown until at least June 7. According to NYPD data, 374 summons “for violations of emergency procedures and acts liable to spread disease” were issued between March 16 and May 5. [NY Post]

Two days later, it was a different game. May 11, 2020.

Same Police. Same City. Same Mayor. But, the hardcore leftists, lead by Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, FREELY assembled in Foley Square (across from the Court House).

IMG_2453

There were many police standing (and just watching) as these outraged Marxists trashed the NYPD and challenged one of their own: Mayor “Red Bill” de Blasio.

Marching from Foley to 1 Police Plaza they were allowed to ASSEMBLE, MARCH and PROTEST. unchallenged,

IMG_2100

NO ARRESTS. NO CEASE AND DESIST. Because Linda and Tamika called the shots. Even the mayor seems to fear the leftist mob and their new found (convenient) love of our Constitution.

NEXT, on Wednesday, May 13, at 2 pm. Patriots will attempt to exercise the same Constitutional First Amendment Rights. AGAIN. Outside City Hall. PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY.

“How much longer?  New Yorkers are fed up with being kept in lock down. Unemployment is rising, businesses are shut down for miles on end, restrictions are being enforced to the point of absurdity.  The longer we are kept in what appears to be a perpetual lock down, the lower our ‘herd immunity’ to other viruses and colds becomes. We become poorer and businesses will never be able to re-open.  We worked with temporary restrictions. We gave up our rights temporarily to freedom of religion and assembly. We gave up our jobs & seeing our family.  ENOUGH!  Other states are reopening with new guidelines. There are NO valid reasons why NYC is not doing the same. It’s time to let Mayor Moron DeBlasio know that he can not take away our Constitutional rights. He can not shut the city down permanently. We must be able to return to work and businesses must be allowed to re-open with guidelines. We must be able to return to our houses of worship. Opening a few streets for NYC residents to walk up and down like zombies is not the answer. “

Stand Up For New York City!

Wanna bet things don’t go well?

Soc/Commie New Yorkers Say #NoWarWithIran – Jan 9, 2020

January 9, 2020. 5 p.m, Columbus Circle (and 6 pm Foley Square). The anti-war “majority” in this country made last minute plans to “get visible” to oppose “Trump’s War” and say #NoWarWithIran. “We will not be forced into another war”.

 At 5 pm: “We will protest outside of Columbus Circle and make our way through the streets and to Trump Tower. Do not miss an opportunity to change the course of history. New York says #NoWarWithIran!”

But, having two locations and two start times, was confusing. The Columbus Circle location had a lame turn out …

So, at 5:15, a few of us headed down to Foley Sq. instead. where

“Iranian-Americans, Muslims, and communities of color stand against endless wars, going to war with Iran, sanctions and the dehumanization of our communities.

Some claimed the turnout to be around 1500-2000. It was a large gathering but perhaps not 2000.

” In the wake of the Trump administration’s reckless assassination of Iranian General Soleimani, and threats to escalate conflict, activists will urge restraint and that the United States avoid yet another unnecessary, costly war of choice in the Middle East.” Foley Square hosted by Faiza N. Ali and Manijeh Nasrabadi.

PLAYLIST- 8 short videos (Sarsour is 8 in the queue)

Speakers included:
Saara Azadi, Raha Iranian Feminist Collective – Co-MC
Murad Awawdeh, NY Immigration Coalition – Co-MC

Bitta Mostofi, Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs
Manijeh Nasrabadi, Raha Iranian Feminist Collective
Zach Henson, Veterans Against the War
Public Advocate, Jumaane Williams

This is part of nationwide events organized by Move On, Win Without War and NIAC. Each city has local organizers taking the mantle : nowarwithiran.org

We demand no war with Iran.
We demand de-escalation.
We demand peace.
#NoWarWithIran


But, what is REALLY happening in the streets of IRAN. It’s NOT what the Soc/Commies “Working Families” pretend. The People of Iran are saying otherwise. Why do the anarchists refuse to see the suffering caused by the Soleimanis and Imans?

Iranian security forces fired live rounds and tear gas at protesters angry at the regime’s denying it shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet, according to newly released video that appears to show blood trails and people fleeing the violence. [NY Post]

“What began as vigils for the students killed when Iran’s Revolutionary Guard mistakenly shot down an airliner turned into large anti-government protests Saturday, with thousands of students chanting “Death to Liars!” and calling for the resignation of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. “F–k you & your mistake!”[NY Post]

Vigils erupted into anti-government protests at Iranian universities. The women of Iran are not THANKFUL to be forced into hijabs and burkas, as this Olympian defector bravely states on Jan 12,2020:

“I wore whatever they told me and repeated whatever they ordered. Every sentence they ordered I repeated,” she wrote, angry at being ordered to wear the mandatory hijab headscarf.“None of us matter for them, we are just tools.” [NY Post]

Unfortunately, the IMAGINE feminist-fools think they know best. They can IMAGINE Peace:

No More War 2020. Raha Iranian Feminist Collective is a New York City-based group of Iranian and Iranian-American women working toward gender and sexual justice and opposed to militarism and imperialism. [Raha]

Imagine all the foreign powers go home, sanctions are lifted, resources flourish, and activists from Tehran to Baghdad to Washington, DC to Damascus are free to organize on our own terms for a society that recognizes and respects life, history, and possibility. [Face Book]

Linda Sarsour: CLUELESS :

“The Chicken Littles got everything wrong on Trump and Iran”

Soleimani, who was revered at home as a masterful military leader but despised internationally as a terrorist responsible for Iran’s bloody proxy wars. (WAS DEAD!)

If you went to bed early Tuesday, you were surprised to wake up Wednesday and learn that World War III has been delayed. No doubt you were also shocked that Iran blinked, oil prices were tumbling and the stock market was soaring.

Once again, the Chicken Little chorus got everything all wrong. The sky isn’t falling and Donald Trump pulled off a huge victory. Oh, and he’s still president. [Michael Goodwin]

BUT, you wouldn’t know this listening to the NO WAR WITH IRAN Leftists ranting in Foley Square this night. Some of whom are active in NYC political circles. Some are Iranian. Some, Vets. And two make claims at being Fakestinians: Linda Sarsour most infamously. The Soc/Commie/Progs shilling for the Soros killing-machine.

And then, there’s Mdm. PELOSI, insisting her measure has “real teeth” because she said the War Powers Act of 1973 gives it the force of law. Claiming it is  also “a statement of the Congress of the United States”. Others say, probably more correctly, “.… Democrats are pulling off a toothless political stunt.” Yet, the MEDIA LOVES them.

Muslim Ban NYC Presser: Yemini-Americans & Almontaser (Foley Square) vids & pics

NYC Presser: Impact of the Muslim Ban on Yemeni-American families.

June 21, 2018  11 AM. Foley Sq. The presser was streamed live and counter-protested by the New JDL-NY . I doubt they were included in the feed (sarc intended).


Hosted and endorsed by MPower Change,  Arab American Association of New York, Center for Constitutional Rights, Yemeni American Merchants Association -YAMA, Yemeni American Association (YAA), CUNY CLEAR and Arab American Association of New York (AAANY).

“Yemeni-Americans shared their experiences trying to reunite with their loved ones stranded abroad and facing immigration hurdles caused by the ban and a war at home. CCR highlighted the key findings of the new report, including how mass denials of waivers to Yemenis in Djibouti demonstrate that the waiver process is merely window-dressing on a racist and discriminatory policy that targets and separates families and must be struck down entirely.”

The speakers included, Ibraham Qatabi, Center for Constitutional Rights (video)

Radad Alborati, impacted by the Muslim Ban


Shahab Hamoud Mothena, impacted by the Muslim Ban


Diala Shamas, Center for Constitutional Rights (video)

Kavita Pariah-Sanchez, Assis. Comm, Mayor’s Off. Immigrant Affairs (included briefly in the video above)


Dr. Debbie Almontaser, Yemeni American Merchants Association. FYI- High Noon. Sun was hot and intense. Caused cell screen to go black – so I couldn’t see subject I was filming – video not framed well – apologies.

At approx 00:44 Debbie decide to air her grievance with me – for daring to  film her presser. ” Like to point out someone very special …. Pamela Hall …. since 2006, follows me around, records all my speeches, then spins it with HATE. (then as she finished a rather long speech) “Sorry I spoke a bit long, but I had a lot to say. Right, Pamela?” Guess she’s never gotten over the fact I exposed her Intifada NYC t-shirt in 2007.

Mentions World Refugee Day. Three more years of Trump. Maybe less if he gets impeached and repeats the usual misinformation regarding “native ” Americans, “No one has a claim to this land except the ‘native’ Americans (and mentions what we did to them).

“Yemeni-American community members, along with local community and human rights organizations, launched a new report,Window Dressing the Muslim Ban: Reports of waivers & mass denials from Yemeni-American families stuck in limbo, authored by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and the Rule of Law Clinic at Yale Law School.

About :  THE CENTER FOR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

The Center for Constitutional Rights is dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South, CCR is a nonprofit legal and educational organization committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.

and  THE RULE OF LAW CLINIC, YALE LAW SCHOOL

The Yale Law School Rule of Law Clinic was launched in 2017 and focuses on maintaining U.S. rule of law and human rights commitments in four broad areas: national security, anti-discrimination, climate change, and democracy promotion. Projects include litigation, policy advocacy, and strategic planning matter.

They concluded the presser reminding everyone that on this day and next week as well, “Whether or not we receive a Supreme Court decision on the Muslim Ban, join us in standing together with the Yemeni-American community to say #NoMuslimBanEver.

On this same day, President Trump tweeted what NEEDS to be said:

Democrats want open Borders, where anyone can come into our country, and stay. This is Nancy Pelosi’s dream. It won’t happen!

What is the purpose of the House doing good immigration bills when you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct (which they feel is good for them in the Mid-Terms). Republicans must get rid of the stupid Filibuster Rule-it is killing you!

The border has been a big mess and problem for many years. At some point Schumer and Pelosi, who are weak on Crime and Border security, will be forced to do a real deal, so easy, that solves this long time problem. Schumer used to want border security – now he’ll take crime!

We shouldn’t be hiring judges by the thousands, as our ridiculous immigration laws demand, we should be changing our laws, building the Wall, hire Border Agents and Ice and not let people come into our country based on the legal phrase they are told to say as their password.”

The TRUTH, it’s a terrible thing to waste.

IFTAR in the Streets, Linda Sarsour & NYPD to New JDL-NY: “You make a sound, you will be removed”

“You make a sound and we will remove you from the park”, NYPD Community Affairs liaison to New JDL-NY. ** scroll down for more on that outrageous muzzling**

IFTAR 2018 in-the-Streets.  6:30 pm Foley Square.

We’re standing in solidarity with communities across the country hosting #iftarinthestreets! Muslims and allies will gather and break fast in support for immigrant communities who are under attack … outside ICE headquarters, at Foley Square …  #iftarinthestreets for Immigrant Justice!” [Face Book]

Ramadan, when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset to please Allah, is considered their holiest month. Many non-Muslims are often invited to fast and even pray with their Muslim friends and also to share the IFTAR dinner.

Ramadan. Iftar. A dawah opportunity on the Road to One World Under Islam, the Umma.

Non-Muslims, like the Leftist Jews from JFREJ (Jews For Racial and Economic Justice) and JVP (Jewish Voice For Peace) were “free to participate in Ramadan” and that’s just what they were doing in Foley Square. Proudly.

This representative from JFREJ, decided to ask questions of the New JDL-NY.

… looking for “Common Ground” …

The New JDL-NY listened politely, but gave no quarter to the ignorance of these misguided leftist Jews, to the JFREJ and JVP who were dedicated to showing the world how to live in peace with their Muslim Sisters and Brothers.

These do-gooder non-Muslims encourage others “…. to be polite to someone who is fasting for Ramadan … greet them with Ramadan Mubarak or Ramadan Kareem, which means ‘Have a Blessed or Generous Ramadan’.” [Huff Po]

BUT, is this special time of year really genuinely welcoming the kafir?

Geller Report and Jihad Watch:

“Ramadan is quintessentially the month of jihad …. a month of holy war and death for Allah, a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.

In contrast, President Trump issued (sadly) a statement claiming that “Ramadan reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life.”

So which is it? Does Ramadan remind us of  “the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life,” or is Ramadan “a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers”?

Saw Raja Abdulhaq [Abulhaq is an active member of Al-Awda, a radical anti-Israel website that rallies for the “Right of Return,” otherwise known as the “One State Solution“].  City Councilman Brad Lander and Linda Sarsour, darling of CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood, and MpowerChange. Peaceful?

… it would be dangerous, suicidal folly for Infidels to pretend that Ramadan is not the month of jihad …. as our Ramadan willful blindness continues, more Infidels will die. (LINK BELGIUM]

** The NYPD Community Affairs officer was apparently in the pocket of the IFTAR organizers. In the name of “peace”, and at the behest of the IFTAR event, he denied Freedom of Speech to the JDL protestors.


His reasoning? The “Iftarists” had the sound permit [which only means the opposition – JDL- cannot be amplified, NOT that they can not be heard.]

But, today he created a new rule. Just for the JDL. The Community Affairs Officer warned the New JDL protestors not to make a sound while Sarsour was speaking (on mic) OR they would be removed from this public park.

See video of Sarsour, a supposed champion of women’s rights, as she inspired those present with her fiery Ramadan thoughts. (Ramadan is her FAVORITE time of year- Jihad anyone?)

Sarsour quotes: “This is the Blessed month of Ramadan, some of our friends have fasted in solidarity with us,  a lot of our Christian and Jewish friends …. we got allies and friends and solidarity…. times we’ve shared in the movement.  I wanta give a shout out to our friends at FRJEJ. Before it was COOL to stand with the Muslims, these Jewish groups were standing with the Muslims .We are so great ful for you … and we will show up for you any time that you need us. We are all in this together. We are going to FIGHT this together. Because the opposition doesn’t like any of you here. They don’t like women, they don’t like Muslims, they don’t like Jews, they don’t like immigrants, they don’t like refugees, they don’t like black people, they don’t like LGBTQ people. We’re all in the same boat  together. If our opposition is treating us like we’re part of one movement … we gotta start acting like ONE movement. We thank you for your continued solidarity on the issues … impacting Muslims and ALL marginalized communities in these United States of America.”(cheers/applause)

As for the muzzling of the NEW JDL-NY, such actions are never imposed on the Muslim/Leftist protestors.

See more in video and follow link to the Pamela Geller CUNY protest opposing Sarsour as the Key Note Speaker for CUNY’s 2017 grads on May 25, 2017:

Something was very rotten in the City of New York that day (and every day really). Respectful silence was not on the agenda. The NOISE makers persisted, unabated, overwhelming the amplified sound. The NYPD just watched allowing the Leftards to create a hell of a NOISE.

… there’s no free speech to the right. Only the left. The only controversial speech the left believes in protecting is its own speech. [DGreenfield]

Sadly, the Tommy Robinson arrest in the UK  is a far more ominous example of free speech rights lost but this day in Foley Sq. was not a sign of progress. Anything but. We have been warned.

Video JDL and chants and responses in Foley Square BEFORE they were muzzled.

Found a couple of twitter posts from the IFTAR-ists mocking the JDL counter protest:

As people gather for the community building protestors with signs reading “Keep Sharia Out” and “Thank you ICE” and “Back The Ban” have show up to instigate those here. [twitter]

Some not-so-friendly folks arrived at our but we’re going to continue to celebrate with love and solidarity in [twitter]

The New JDL NY responded to complaints from the anti-Zionists, “.. guess, holding an American flag, thanking law enforcement and wanting to keep Sharia out is unfriendly.

 The end of Ramadan 2018 (on June 14) is called Eid ul-Fitr (Festival of the Breaking of the Fast), a 3 day festival. Three Days! Wow. So much to look forward to.

“Working” Peoples ‘Day of Action’ – #UnRigtheSystem

Saturday, February 24, 2018, a Working People’s Day of Action.

https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/26910268_10155260145248061_6121097871831582982_o.jpg?oh=3b9fbcdfa0dc0d7a88413f4fe99f94d9&oe=5B104C71

End the Workers Struggle against Government and Corporate Greed.

Scheduled for 11 am, I arrived. Foley Square. approximately 10:45.

The SEIU and associated unions had PACKED the square with workers, cheering and jeering, as they held union banners and flags high above the crowd.

The dutiful union tools stood for hours as they watched a jumbotron, placed over the stage, while the amplification carried for blocks.

The ubiquitous SOCIALIST/ COMMIES screamed at the workers to never forget they are VICTIMS of corporate GREED.

From the Left: It takes a UNION to make things right.

When we unite, we can do almost anything. Join with us as we protect our freedoms and fight back against the corporate CEOs and politicians who have rigged the system and our economy against us.”  #UnrigtheSystem  #ItsAboutFreedom

Fight for the freedom to come together in strong unions.
Fight for equitable pay.
Fight for affordable health care.
Fight for quality schools.
Fight for vibrant communities.
Fight for a secure future for all of us.

From the Right: Public-sector unions are just RACKETEERING outfits [NY Post]

This is how a public-sector union works:
1. The State creates a monopoly.
2. The monopoly forces taxpayers to fund those workers, whether they do a good job or not.
3. The union then coerces workers to pay dues regardless of whether or not they want to.
4. Then the union uses those dues to help fund political advocacy that perpetuates their monopoly and the union’s influence.
In other words: racketeering. [NY Post]

But, the LEFT insists: “In the face of mammoth corporations and their puppet politicians […] the Right is on the wrong side of this issue.”

From the Right, a voice of reason at the “Workers Day” Facebook page: David Fisher : I hope y’all will thank Trump for the lowering of your taxes and in many instances your bonuses and wage increases .. (and)..  to tell those 300 union offices to quit embezzling from union members.

FACT: There are few BULLIES bigger than the UNION BOSS in everyday American life.”[NY Post]

From the Right [National Review) – on forced membership –

It’s estimated that at least 5.5 million government workers in 22 states are forced to pay money to unions just to keep their jobs. […] forcing people to support government-worker unions has for decades constituted one of the greatest workplace violations of First Amendment rights in U.S. history.”

Now, back to the reason for this protest/rally: Supreme Court case could deal major blow to unions in New York

“On Monday(Feb 26, 2018) the US Supreme Court will hear Janus v. AFSCME. At issue are the constitutionality of laws in 22 states — including New York — that force public employees who do not want to belong to unions to pay unions “agency fees” for bargaining collectively on their behalf.” (also know as financial core) [ NY Post]

The plaintiff Illinois state worker Mark Janus — argues that agency fees violate his First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and association by compelling him to underwrite union political activity with which he disagrees.

If the court sides with Mr. Janus […] government unions in the state could lose 20 to 30 percent of their members and money. The balance of power in state politics would shift.” [NY Post]


So
, the unions rally, they MUST “Mobilize, Organize, Energize.”

After all, New York’s unions collect over $860 million a year from some 1 million government employees. “[…] furthermore, the vast majority of public union political activity seeks to aid the left side of the political spectrum, as the unions are closely aligned with the Democratic and Working Families parties.” [NY Post]

You Can’t DEPORT a Movement-Foley Sq- NYC

Feb. 10, 2018 – Foley Square, NYC
9 am to Noon

In the words of the hard-core left hosting this rally, You Can’t Deport a MOVEMENT!  “There is a new stay for Ravi’s deportation […] this moment matters now MORE THAN EVER! We must stand up for the countless thousands of Ravis and Jeans and show that we are powerful together! “

“We leave no one behind! ICE cannot target our leaders OR our communities!”

Co-Sponsoring Organizations from the LEFT include: New Sanctuary Coalition, New York Immigration Coalition, 32BJ SEIU, Bronx Immigration Partnership, Copwatch Patrol Unit, Critical Resistance, Detention Watch Network, Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM), Democratic Socialists of America, Domestic Workers Alliance, Equality Labs, Immigrant Defense Project, Interfaith Center of New York,

mPower Change, Queer Detainee Empowerment Project (QDEP), the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild, Northern Manhattan Immigration Coalition, Red Bloom / Solidarity Network, Restaurant Opportunities Center NYC, Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir, Rise and Resist, South Asian Solidarity Initiative, Showing Up For Racial Justice (SURJ) NYC, UnLocal, We Belong Together, WhyHunger, Workers Center of Central NY and Worker Justice Center of New York.

Video Part 1

[Face Book] “ICE is escalating its attack on immigrants and only our movement can stop them […] demand a #NEWSANCTUARYCITY”

The New Sanctuary Coalition (founded in 2007) acts as a network of interfaith congregations and organizations that stand with families and communities resisting detention and deportation.

Always encouraging to see JDL-NY giving THANKS to ICE! (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)

Still, [Face Book] moans from the LEFT droned on: “We need to stop the escalation of ICE and the president’s attacks on immigrant communities, including targeting dissidents for deportation…” 

— “targeting” FELONS? BAD ICE. BAD U.S. Government —

“… (ICE) threatening Dreamers with detention, ICE efforts to infiltrate courts and churches and up to the racist rhetoric of the president and his office.”

“In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re asking friends and fellow activists to help hand deliver a message of love for all immigrants to ICE’s office by showing […] solidarity with Ravi, Dreamers, TPS recipients, workers, families and community members.”

“We’ll use messages of love and solidarity to combat the “good immigrant, bad immigrant” narrative. We resent the pressure on immigrants to prove their social or economic worth in order to justify their humanity.”

“This is a fight against this racist administration’s attempt to overstep the constitution and cherry pick who has the right to freedom and who will be terrorized into silence.”

“… this movement has deep roots and cannot be eradicated. We’re going to show them that you can’t deport a movement.”

Ravi’s status managed a reprieve—again: Immigrant rights activist temporarily avoids deportation.

“Justice was restored today( 2-09-18), at least temporarily, as Mr. Ragbir is now able to remain in the United States and free until the Court reviews his constitutional claims,” Ragbir’s attorney R. Stanton Jones said.

Ragbir — who has been a US resident since 1994 — has a 2001 felony fraud conviction from which prompted a 2006 order of deportation that Ragbir had successfully challenged until his arrest last month.” [NY Post]

Video Part 2 – as they did the Immigrant March

“Reps for Ragbir — the Trinidad native — also announced that they will be filing a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court on Friday against ICE, Homeland Security, the Dept. of Justice and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to permanently stop officials from attempts to deport Ragbir and for relief for other immigrants rights activists who have also been targeted for deportation.” [NY Post]

“Ragbir slammed the Trump administration’s immigration policy […] calling it “ethnic cleansing.” [NY Daily News]

++ Then at NOON to 1:30 pm, the NY March For Immigrants’ Rally gathered in Herald Square

Their reasoning and accusations (as always) IGNORE the Rule of Law as the rail against the U.S. Government: “We are appalled by this administration’s attempt to pit immigrants against each other.”

We’re protesting against the anti-immigrant policies proposed by the White House and the GOP legislators, especially the recent White House proposal to end family reunification in exchange for DACA legalization.”


“Legal Immigrants, DACA and every American who opposes the anti-immigrant agenda are joining hands to fight racism, bigotry and xenophobia. United we stand, divided we fall.”

“There are roughly 7.5 billion human beings on this planet. None of them came from outer space, so none of them are aliens. So I refuse to call any human being an alien.”

“Furthermore, no human being is “illegal.
Any law that outlaws humanity is a bad and unjust law.

Apartheid was legal. That did not make it right. The human beings breaking Apartheid laws were humans fighting for justice, not “illegals.”

The Holocaust was legal. That did not make it right. Human beings breaking Holocaust laws were humans fighting for justice, not “illegals.”

“Slavery was legal. That did not make it right. Human beings fighting against slavery laws were not “illegals.” They were human beings fighting for justice.

Segregation was legal. That not make it right. Human Beings breaking Jim Crow laws were not “illegal.” They were human beings fighting for justice.”

“The earth has no lines on it. All borders are man made.
Crossing a man made line is only a crime because people have made it one.

People crossing a man made line are still human beings. They do not deserve to be detained or tortured. It is wrong to rip their families apart for any reason.

The earth belongs to all of us and we belong to it. Any human being should be able to live, with their family, any damn place they please on this planet.”

No human being is illegal. All this deportation of human beings is wrong and racist. There is absolutely no justification for treating human beings in this way.”  (This article was written by Claire Cohen.)#March4Immigrants

Wonder if Mexico or Japan or China, will open their borders. Open Borders. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

March For “Truth” and Rally to Build the Wall

On June 3, 2017, I caught two rallies that went from Dump Trump to Support President Trump.What a day.

FIRST:  “The March For Truth”  Foley Square, NYC – 10:30 am.

Billed as a non-partisan “Search for Truth”. But , their signs reveal what rubes they really are – again.

See Flickr slide show for the many pithy posters and slogans. Typically, some were rude and crude.

Two patriots, “Trump 2020”  and “YOU Lost” countered the “Dump Trump” anarchists, confounding the Leftists, wiped the smile from the collective when they caught a glimpse of the counter protest.

It put a smile on my face ….

They scoffed and marched on … naively committed to their search for “truth” aka agitprop. After all, why would anyone oppose their “March For Propaganda”?

At approximately 11:30, the happy snowflakes spilled out of their pen as they began their march down Broadway, playfully bouncing to the music as they held their snarky messages for all to see.

RESTORE DEMOCRACY.

A March to SAVE Democracy.  Oh, Puhlease….

++After the March – Headed UP TOWN +++

Now it was the “Rally for the Wall” at Trump Tower hosted by the America First Foundation, Inc, with special patriot freedom fighters at LIVE From America .

RALLY FOR THE WALL BLOCK PARTY  had a message for President TRUMP”

“We have your back Mr. President and we have the funds and determination to help secure our southern border. Bring your flags and your support for our POTUS and this wall and be ready to march to Trump Towers.  We need you. Your President needs you. Your country needs YOU!”

It was approximately 12:15 when I arrived. They seemed to be from out-of-state, which might be why there was a smallish turnout.

But the speaker I heard was solid and made a reasonable case for why we need to protect our borders.

It was nice to see Americans gathered out side Trump Tower in support of President Trump’s pledge to ‘Build the Wall’.

A respite from the many hostile actions at this location, slandering his nascent administration while calling for impeachment.

Hope to see more of these “Support The President” rallys to counter the shocking violence towards anything or anyone Republican. Sad times that need fixin’.

Next up, a protest outside the reinterpreted Julius Caesar with the Assassination of a sitting President.
