The “Border Wall National Emergency Protest” was lead by Marxist-Socialists, offering their Sanctuary City (NYC) to illegals with no questions asked cause : Illegals are good. Patriots, bad. And TRUMP is to blame!
“The Emergency is in the White House (or as it would seem today on the golf course), not on the border! Join your brothers and sisters in dozens of activist groups in a show of rebellion against this Fake National Emergency. #DonTheCon must be stopped.” Hosted byNew York Indivisible :: Rise and Resist :: Food & Water Action
Presidents’ Day and “The People” were exposing Trump’s National Emergency EXCUSE for a Border Wall [ AOL]
The Socialists ranted about the horrors of living in WHITE, racist America, roiling on and on to IMPEACH TRUMP.
Slide show pics:
Patriots were also there, countering the socialist insanity by challenging the Marxist/Socialist lies. FACT: LEGAL immigrants are always WELCOMED but, illegals should go back where they came from. OBEY our laws. Come here LEGALLY. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Slide show pics:
The Marxist -Socialist invasion continues in our schools, colleges, media and … winning elected office. We ignore this at our own peril. They count on our complacency.
Scroll through a Flickr slide show of the COMMUNIST RALLY/PROTEST, where NO American Patriots were welcomed.
The signs and banners, a mind-numbing example of what our media and educational institutions swallow as fact from the agit-prop machine of anarchy.
Some personal observations. At 1:45, the Communist sympathizers quietly assembled in front of Macy’s at 34th and Broadway. Hip-hop type music was blasted as this happy group of anarchists greeted each other; smiling, laughing.
I was left unchallenged (in a public square) for easily 30 minutes or more. Usually Sara Flounders (of IAC) assigns someone to chase me away (today this didn’t happen til about 3:15 pm) So, I wandered, taking pictures of the many signs.
The protest is supposed to be about SYRIA, but sign after sign regurgitates all the many familiar anti-U.S. and anti-Israel memes.
Anything they can hang on the American DEVIL they will put on a poster. This is a protest against America. Against Israel.
Then I saw our eponymous patriot, Jim McD boldly going where many in Manhattan fear to go: offering support for President Trump AND for AMERICA. I watched Jim and the Commies for about 15 minutes and then … Patriots of many colors and ages began to join him!
Eventually, the anti-Capitalistas surrounded the Patriots with the agit-prop signs and Syrian 2-star flags (the Commies are not represented by the Syrian 3-star flag) while spirited exchanges – some actually civil- took place for about an hour. (No police seemed concerned by the swarming of the patriots.)
The swarming was finally addressed around 3:25 pm. The police began to build a ‘wall’ of barricades – separating both sides with a never ending stream of police barricades. (Seemed a bit late since the march to Trump Tower would begin in about 30 minutes) But the separation of the factions – the push-back was on ….
Observed high emotions from some; seemed the barricades made a few of the Commies more angry than the sight of the patriots, arguing AGAINST the police creating any kind of barrier. (How dare they)
Some final thoughts from the LEFT on why they gathered this day and their “ALL OUT AGAINST WAR! STOP U.S. Bombing of Syria” campaign.
“The bombing of Damascus is underway. With no legal authority and in clear violation of international law, the Trump Administration has started its criminal attack on the people of Syria with the largest U.S. Navy task force, including U.S. nuclear aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines, since the attack on Iraq in 2003. Trump and the Pentagon’s criminal attack on Syria endangers us all.
It is time for all of us to express our strong opposition to the U.S. bombing of Syria and the endless U.S. wars.The time is now to return to the street to make our voices heard … to challenge the war makers and defend humanity. The future is in our hands. Not Another War!”
“They have forgotten what the contributions of different cultures have meant to various societies. There is the bad, as we have seen from history, and as we see now, but there is also the good. If Caucasians are so bad, then why is one section of the world struggling to empty into the Western lands? Do you see any exodus headed elsewhere?” [Facebook]
Stop Mayor Red Bill de Blasio. Again. Now it’s the Italian-American heritage assault. On the steps of NY City Hall, a press conference was held in support of the Columbus Circle statue. A GIFT to the city of NY in 1892 by Italian immigrants.
A passionate roster of speakers mostly Italian-Americans were there but none came to hate-on America. They spoke with pride as Americans who are also proud of their Italian heritage.
Opening remarks from CouncilmanJoseph Borelli (R-South Shore).
Borelli begins by mentioning the significance of Italian American protests in 1970-1. And now Columbus is next on the chopping block. He warns de Blasio and Mark-Viverito, who are opening historical arguments 4oo years old, your actions are more divisive than uniting. The iconoclasm we are seeing […] will look foolish 200 years from now. How will our actions today be judged. This is an unfortunate chapter in NYC’s history. We are concerned about preserving his (Columbus’) legacy. We are asking […] he be judged through the lens of the era in which he lived.”
Congressman Borelli was followed by Joe Piscopo (Piscopo excerpts)
“This is about my grandparents. They came from Italy. They came in steerage. On the boat to Ellis island, passed the statue of liberty. With no respect they came to this country. You know what they did? They learned the law. They learned the language. They were proud to become Americans. I wasn’t allowed to speak Italian in the house. They became Americans. The one iconic symbol for Italian-Americans was Christopher Columbus. He’s flawed. We’re all flawed. Hey, I’m flawed. We’re all flawed. You know what gets me frustrated … Italians have no respect. We never complain… When we were prejudiced against. When they hung Sicilians in New Orleans.(**lynched March 14, 1891 **) Teddy Roosevelt said, “They got what they deserved.” FDR interned Italians during WW2. We didn’t complain because WE WERE AMERICANS. Leave our statues alone (cheers). Stop the political correctness. It’s killing us. Keep the greatness, keep the texture, the character of the United States of America.”
The reality that politicians of a ‘progressive’ persuasion – aka Marxists – seem to be gaining ground as they “progressively” wipe our American history from the books inspired multiple speaker. They spoke passionately of their pride in America and our shared history. [Part 1 – Candidates were introduced “Bo” Dietl, Michel Faulkner, Steve Saperstein, Lucretia Potter.
5 speakers (in order): Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn), Council Minority Leader Steven Matteo (R-Mid-Island), Assemblyman Ronald Castorina Jr., Brooklyn Councilman Vincent Gentile, Councilman Mark Mark Treyger.
These proud Americans put the mayor on-notice that no one is going to suck-it-up and accept his offensive proposals. Leave our statues ALONE. [Part 2 –Staten Island artist Scott LoBaido is introduced followed by 5 speakers (in order) Queens Councilman, Eric Ulrich, Joe Guagliardo, National Council Of Columbia Associations, Joe Sciame, former president Sons of Italy in America, John (?), and last – the attorney representing 10,000 members in the NYPD Association and Manny Rothstein.
It was a moving and informative 45 minutes presser. Well-attended by the press, a press that was clearly not too sympathetic to the cause as was apparent in the Q and A. You can see and hear the disdain in the reporters’ questions.
So, will Mayor “Red Bill” and his fellow travelers, Melissa Mark-Viverito, diverge from their path of destruction? Not bloody likely.
Will the citizens of NYC allow this proud Italian-American symbol of our shared American history to disappear, treated with disdain by the anti-America Left? Not bloody likely.
This is war. Americans vs the Marxist cabal. Game on.
+++ This is a partial list of names mentioned in video: Councilman Joseph Borelli (R-South Shore), Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn), Assemblyman Ronald Castorina Jr., Council Minority Leader Steven Matteo (R-Mid-Island), Assemblyman Matthew Titone (D-North Shore), Staten Island artist Scott LoBaido, comedian Joe Piscopo, Brooklyn Councilman Vincent Gentile, Joseph Guagliardo of the National Council Of Columbia Associations, Joseph Sciame, the former president of the Sons of Italy in America.++++
I was thrilled to walk up the scaffolding stairs, to see the Columbus statue up-close on September 20, 2012. But, was this a good thing?
October 2012- “Discovering Columbus”- a rare opportunity to see the 1892 marble figure of the great Italian explorer up close. Nishi, who is internationally known for transforming historical monuments by surrounding them with domestic spaces, said the aim of his piece is to put the viewer at eye level with the statue. “Discovering Columbus” is his first public art project in the United States.
However, this particular art-event – “Discovering Columbus” – was met with derision by the Italian American community; covering up the statue with a scaffolding, on Columbus Day 2012 – Not nice.
And now, five years later, they fight the outrageous possibility of removing the statue all together and RENAMING the Circle ++ LENAPE CIRCLE ++
What’s next? Renaming the continents? No more Amergus Vespuci. No more “America”. Sadly the big LIE of “indigenous” people to the North and South American continents would live on.
** 1891 lynchings mentioned by Joe Piscopo – In late 19th-century America there was a growing prejudice against Italians, who were immigrating to the American South in large numbers to fill the shortage of cheap labor created by the end of slavery. Sugar planters, in particular, sought workers who were lower paid and more compliant than former slaves; they hired immigrant recruiters who began bringing the Italians to southern Louisiana. In the 1890s, thousands of Italians were arriving in New Orleans each year. Many settled in the French Quarter, which by the early 20th century became known as “Little Sicily.”
Southern Italians were not considered full-fledged members of the “white race”… Between 1890 and 1910, Sicilians made up less than 4 percent of the white male population, yet were roughly 40 percent of the white victims of southern lynch mobs. **

March 15, 2017 – 7 PM – First rule of politics (that Repubs seem to have neglected) Never attend a Town Hall meeting you can’t control. That’s what Comrade de Blasio did with great aplomb.
The NYPD, the NYC Council members, the local progs, who remain loyal to the mayor, packed the meeting with loyalists who understood they were there to make nice with the mayor, or else.
Even the so-called “hard questions” were asked with respectful voices. No shouting. No screaming. No chanting. No signs (nothing like that was permitted). No Way. No How.
Not possible since entry to the school was security intensive. Everything was scanned, purses dumped (my wallet – DUMPED); back packs, camera gear groped, dumped and prodded. No signs would be snuck in- if they even tried- not gonna get past that security. (for s few more pictures see slide show)
Listened to the town hall meeting for about 90 minutes, of a three hour marathon, with nary a spark of discontent. The Mayor and Councilman Johnson offered the usual FRIENDLY soc/commie/prog responses to a very receptive crowd.
Stuck-on-stupid for almost every question or complaint, the most recycled solution was, “We need MORE Progressive Democrats in Albany to get rid of Trump.”
Manhattan. NYC. A hot bed of soc/commie PROGRESSIVE politicians who stay in office til they die. New York has no brain. No heart. Just empty tills that must be refilled with higher and higher taxes. Yep. That’s the ticket to a workers party paradise. (playlist of videos has excerpts of many of the talking points and answers)
Three hours of platitudes and get rid of Trump promises. “We feel your pain. November 8th was a nightmare. We can fix it if we try. We are HERE FOR YOU!”
See two more videos of the mayor on Muslim school holidays…
And Sanctuary Cities are MORE safe.
So, where were the disenchanted heavy hitters? Those fellow-travelers who often demand that Comrade Mayor de Blasio step-down. I’ve heard them. Seen them. Guess inquiring minds were checked-at-the-door.
Next day, March 16, 2017, FOUND the DUMP Blaz Commies outside City Hall. There they were, ready to excoriate all things de Blasio.
The malcontents were baaack! And not just for Chinatown and the LES (Lower East Side).
Their press release said a people-of-color consortium lead this protest. They gathered (AGAIN) with the same complaints heard on Jan 16, followed by “Mayor de Blasio must STEP DOWN!”
Blaz, the racist, is as BAD AS TRUMP!
Mayor de Blasio, “gentrifier-in-chief,” has designated NYC a “sanctuary city” in an effort to protect immigrants from racist and xenophobic Trump Executive Orders. For many NYC immigrants, however, our communities are under siege as we live in the instability and crisis as a result of the Mayor’s own rezoning policy that is displacing us from the very places that we seek refuge.
A list of speakers outside City Hall:
Heard three of the speakers before I had to leave:
What a difference a day makes. These soc/commie/progs are not the friendlies from the night before.
While Trump pushes people out of the country, de Blasio pushes people out of their homes and neighborhoods, all to benefit his political aspirations and ultra-rich developers. They are two sides of the same coin: both destroy immigrant families and communities of color.
We say no more to racism and displacement! Join us to demand Mayor de Blasio step down!
There was a list of demands:
1) End racism in city planning. Pass community-based “People First” plans like the Chinatown Working Group rezoning plan.
2) End public funding for luxury development, such as 421-a. Instead; use public resources to preserve and build more permanent low-income housing.
3) Stop privatization of public land and assets.
4) Mayor de Blasio and those in City Council who also collude with developers, step down.
Displacement. Selling blocks of real estate apartments – in lower economic communities – to build higher and higher 65 story replacements. They want the displacement to stop. The graft and payments to stop. (Are you listening NOW, Mr. Mayor?)
Seems ol’ Red Bill’s a bit soiled and his fellow soc/commie/progs are not happy that this “Progressive” Mayor remains in office.
“Step Down de Blasio!” The real estate developers are displacing NYC residents. (With the mayor’s blessing.) Racist Rezoning is destroying immigrant families. That’s why “Bill de Blasio must go!” Now.
Six days before the national Rise with Standing Rock mobilization in Washington, DC, march on Trump Tower (on 5th avenue) to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline and its threat to the Standing Rock Sioux, their sacred lands and clean water. We will rally at 1:00 pm, then march at 2:00. The march will begin in front of the New York Public Library and go to Trump Tower and beyond.
Back to NYC. For me, it all began at 1 pm. 42nd St. N.Y. Public Library at Fifth Ave. March 4th for Standing Rock. It was COLD. Windy and very cold. But, no matter, there were many dedicated malcontents hanging and waiting for the protest march to Trump Tower.
The march to Trump Tower was set to start at about 2 pm. While waiting, there was lots of music. In spite of the cold, the musicians seemed to manage.
Including a familiar pro-Trump patriot.
Never dull, visually: Donald Puppets, expected.
And disenchanted, brain-washed millennials like this mother and her dutiful spawn.
Always, disappointed to see such sweet children sent down this path of global, anti-Americanism.
The themes and complaints from the Leftists were many, as the Flickr slide show reveals:
Couldn’t walk with them – still dealing with my plantar churl – so bussed it to 56th street where I caught up with the March4Trump Rally.
Surprised to locate them at 57th street, a block from Trump Tower. The police had moved them further from the tower (and these are the GOOD guys!)
Scheduled from Noon to 3 pm, it was about 2:30, and they had a solid group of patriots assembled. Diverse as always, NOT a group of WHITE supremacists. Never.
Considering the COLD, and CONTRARY to the odd media count of only 125, this late in the rally I saw a healthy turnout. The March4Trumpers still filled the block.
They were in the midst of a SPIRITED exchange with some anti-Trump stragglers (who obviously had not gone to the library).
The police kindly reminded the anti-Trumpers (who politely resisted) that they must go to their assigned location at 55th and Fifth. SLOWLY they agreed to go back to 56th st., puppets and all.
From the NYPL on 42nd street, to 57th and Fifth, found a LOUD show of Support or Resistance (depending on whose side they were on) with signs, shouting and cheering.
It was a civilized exit EXCEPT for the rude finger-jabbing from this well-dressed “lady”. She very much enjoyed flipping off the PRO-Trumpers.
Becoming a bit shy once she saw my camera.
See Flickr side show of both sides at Trump Tower
Typically from the LEFT, their strolling musicians brought a bit of NOLA Mardi Gras to the scene. I must admit it was pleasing to the ear.
In conclusion, as I looked for media recaps, found this report from the NY Post. It mentions the separating of the opposing factions before I arrived .
Pro-Trump picketers and anti-Trump protesters collided in Midtown Saturday, but there was no clashing beyond competing chants.
About 125 President Trump fans, many wearing Trump masks, flocked to Trump Tower, where they chanted “Build that wall!” and “USA.” Some carried signs that read “If you don’t like him, leave,” and “Jail Obama & Soros.”
A faction of 50 protesters met the Trump supporters at noon at the Fifth Avenue intersection. To the tune of “Frosty the Snowman,” they sang, “Donnie the con man.” They held signs with pictures of Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that read “Investigate the Bromance.”
Cops separated and dispersed both groups after an hour.
++ Also, found a video dealing with that relocation of the March4Trumpers ++
Another day on the streets of Manhattan. The Left never rests. Neither should we. March on. March on.

Part 2. March 8, 2017. Noon. 59th and Fifth avenue. Part 1 link >>here>> The crowd was jammed around the stage, from all sides – no elbow room, sight-lines poor. A Day Without a Woman Strike. Obscenely popular.
Amidst a sea of Red and PINK, a lot of foolish women worshiping at the altar of sharia loving feminazis like Linda Sarsour. SAD. Cameras on all sides struggling to get a shot of Sarsour, whose pursuit of public office, Brooklyn Borough President or even Mayor NYC, looks more and more probable. They worship her. The Anti-Trump Women’s Movement Teams Up With Islamist Terrorist ,Linda Sarsour, Islamist apologist and activist, a supporter of shariah law. Catching her speech, recording it, was high on my bucket list. Sarsour always needs to be heard not just seen.
I had a difficult time filming Sarsour, photographers crowded so tightly at the front of the stage but what matters … you hear every bloody word.
The gist is, Republicans – Bad. Some men – always bad, like melanin-challenged Repubs, which makes, of course, America Bad. After a couple of other speakers, I moved on. Forgetting there was a ‘march’ on the books. I focused on the crowd. By now it had swelled from 59th to 58th and across the avenue into Grand Army Plaza.
I wound up missing phase two: THE MARCH. Around 1:30 the sharia compliant feminazis marched arm-in-arm to Trump International Tower. Blocking the streets, were Sarsour and approximately 12 of her minions [see Womens March Team Bios ]
They staged an arrest – see womens’ march twitter feed coming from INSIDE the paddy wagon. Hard times? Really? I think not.
(LINKS below of more arrest coverage)
Back to the speakers portion of the protest/rally. I heard not a critical word from Sarsour or her comrade sisters-in-arms ( like Faiza Ali who spoke as well) about the horrors of Sharia Law.
No one mentioned the INTERNATIONAl, GLOBAL abuses in ISLAMIC countries; heaped on women, children, homosexuals (lesbians) trans- genders
PLAYLIST 3 short VIDEOS
Excerpted transcription from one video:
Hey, New York, whats-up? […. ] I stand before you as a girl from Brooklyn and Staten Island, NY. (cheers) […] Trump does not have respect for women but he also doesn’t know the POWER of women. Despite ATTEMPTS by Trump and Republicans to diminish women, we know our value and we know that America does not function without us. (cheers) We know that this GLOBE doesn’t function without us.
Two years ago when I visited Palestine, I had a woman tell me that women will be the leaders of the revolution because we’ve (??) half the population and we ARE half the population. (cheers)
Today I strike for every woman, who like me, couldn’t pull together enough money to afford college and had to work a 9 to 5 job and a retail job. Or went in to massive debt because they had to pay to go to college.
I strike for every incarcerated (women) out there, because women are the fastest growing population behind bars and “enough is enough”.
I strike for every woman and every family torn apart by deportation. And for every (women) [??] that we are less than men.
I strike for trans-women who keep on being murdered on our streets and I. Have. Said. ENOUGH! There is a massive resistance movement that is growing. We are a part of it. But, we need to put our bodies on [??]
We need to stand, to stand-up for black women. We need to stand-up for Palestinian women. We need to stand-up for Southeast Asian women. We need to stand for ALL women. (CHEERS) Because equal pay is not just equal pay for white women (I love ya’ll) But, equal pay should be equal pay for ALL of us. And we should not go to sleep knowing that we can go home and [??]
So I leave you with this song. [Sarsour joins singing] “Ain’t gonna let know body turn us around. Turn us around. Turn us around. Ain’t gonna let nobody turn us around. We gonna keep on a-walkin’, keep on ta-alkin’, marchin’ on to Freedom Land.” Thank you, New York.
Nope. It’s all about this country. America: Bad. America, where Individualism Rules. (for now) Even obscenity is OKAY. (for now)America, where these privileged educated women can rant, without FEAR, about their imagined enemies. Spewing their fantastical version of abuse, while ignoring the real enemy of women, children AND men- of the free world: Islamic Global Terror . The CRICKETS were very LOUD
IF ONLY- they understood and cherished the country they live in. Where their white privileged daughters will have the same GOOD life as their privileged mothers. (As long as there is No Sharia Law allowed here)
The next Generation will suffer? WHY?
Fools and Tools, free to be you and me. No HUMAN RIGHTS denied compliments of U.S. More signs to see in Flickr Slide Show
It was a very quiet protest ….
Except for the “cute” no-more-war”songs sung by tone-deaf Grannies. Coinciding with the protest, but unrelated, four seriously armed officers – weapons ready – right there in Times Square.
So … if I understand the protest meme correctly, “Put an END to the U.S. War Machine” and such armed displays would just disappear…. Because … there would be NO MORE WARS. Right? (Notice: Swamp Land For Sale)
Saw MANY of the same protestors from the “Netanyahu/Kissinger War- Mongers” Plaza Hotel protest. “No more ENDLESS wars” protests. They are sign-ready, repeat offenders all. (Click through slide show below)
Today they had better signs – larger-flyers –
…. and a GREEN party candidate,Robin Laverne Wilson Robin says, “I was asked directly by the Green Party of New York to consider the candidacy for U.S. Senate in the State of New York, and with great honor and humility, I accepted.” (she is opposing Sen. “Chuckie” Schumer)
The Green Party – an international movement of global citizens who honor Earth over Empire.
They have no love for “Hilda ” – Oppose Trump (of course)
A coy fellow asked if my shotgun mic wind-muff (the ‘dead cat”) was a dead SQUIRREL (as in Vigilant Squirrel Brigade) I played dumb. Smiled. Moved on. Better than getting shoved around cause “words will never hurt me”(so they say)
Comrade Debra Sweet loves to walk straight at me – hard – like she’ll crush me- then walks away. My crime? Covering their actions. Not playing for the same team. (throw the bum out!)
What did they actually accomplish? My pictures- their pictures- some video- a couple of media interviews- a tourist attraction (they LOVE to take pics with the commies)But nothing YUGE.
Two Times Sq Alliance guardswere concerned( briefly) Took pictures- observed -walked away. After all, this is Times Square. Passersby revealed the obvious, the world is more than just this protest.
The Jewish High Holy Days….
….Comicon…. [note her sword]Perhaps that’s why even the heavily armed cops and the NYPD station, right there at 43rd st, had limited interest in a quiet protest. No harm. No foul. Get in. Get out.
The damage “World Can’t Wait” can actually cause is in our colleges. I’ve observed their faculty-sponsored meetings at Brooklyn College… a template for RECRUITING students. I sat quietly at a meeting but, my presence was a HUGE irritant. (No QUIET opposition allowed) Elaine Brower “outed” me as a “SPY” for the FBI (bells sirens lights flashing) as students in the room gasped …. laughable if only Brower and her Commie insurgents weren’t succeeding. Their indoctrination within our schools is welcomed and goes UNchallenged. Seeding the next generation matters more than these tame displays in Times Square.
So, putting a spotlight on them, this day, at the Times Square Recruitment Center helps to inform – to expose them in our schools where THEY RECRUIT and INDOCTRINATE our youth.
For the last 71⁄2 years, the United States, under a Democratic Commander in Chief, has waged an illegitimate and immoral war encompassing Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Syria, and Somalia while maintaining a torture camp in Guantánamo that he pledged to close on “Day 1.”
The wars are now conducted largely through the use of killer drones – remotely controlled, without accountability, illegal, and hated around the world. These drone strikes have killed thousands, destroyed families ,and traumatized whole nations. Neither Trump nor Clinton will stop the “war on terror” or end this culture of violence and hatred.
If you care about the future of humanity and the planet, then the only choice is to act together to stop this commitment to wars for empire.
THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US.
Send the message around the world that that there are people living in this country who represent another way, giving them heart, courage and common cause.

… come out and shut down Bill de Blasio’s re-election fundraiser. A mayor who pushes Broken Windows policing, continued torture at Rikers, gentrification-lite and calls himself the ‘defender’ of Israel might choke on his champagne when he sees NYers aren’t falling for his ‘progressive’ mirage.
Mayor de Blasio’s thinking re-election this week with a fancy fundraiser gala at the Sheraton Hotel.”
Donations can go as high as $4,950 but the cost of shutting down this empty suit: priceless.
Almost two years into his administration we recognize how willing BdB is to sell out our communities by working hand in glove with developers, hospital executives and a racist police commissioner while using the language of social justice.
We want to make it clear that this so-called ‘progressive’ mayor is not only NOT our ally, but works against all of our collective interests:
– His support for Broken Windows policing – Giuliani-style crackdowns on the homeless – A continuation of the status quo at Rikers Island – Bloomberg-style selling out of NYCHA to private developers – An ‘affordable housing’ agenda real estate interests love.
– Proclaiming himself ‘defender’ of Israel, where he was last week.
“The return of Bill Bratton, welcomed back by the faux-progressive Mayor de Blasio, signaled a return and continuation of racist policing policies and philosophies that affect so many of the black, Latino and working class voters who voted for de Blasio.
Bratton’s racist and unproven Broken Windows theory continues to target the vulnerable New Yorkers de Blasio’s empty ‘Tale of Two Cities rhetoric promised to fight for.”
– New Yorkers Against Bratton
“The police continue to be purveyors of violence, and de Blasio continues to back them. The mayor made this clear when he chose to use taxpayer money to hire 1,300 new police officers instead of investing that money into needed social services like education and affordable housing. New York’s Black and Brown youth need better education and jobs not more police harassment!”
– People’s Power Assemblies
“BdB repeatedly rubber-stamps proposals made by his Department of Correction (DOC) Commissioner Ponte, the most recent of which include DOC and NYPD collaborating to conduct comprehensive background checks on visitors to Rikers Island [… ] Commissioner Ponte’s vision for NYC jails could potentially go unchecked, giving DOC free reign to implement “reforms” that perpetuate oppressive systems and promote practices that are dehumanizing and deemed torturous by U.N. standards.”
“Just as Bill de Blasio avidly supports the settler-colonial state of Israel, he also promotes imperialist and white supremacist policies within New York City […] In addition, through crackdowns on the homeless living in the streets of the city, plans for the privatization of the NYC Housing Authority, and the designation of Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), DeBlasio has continued to promote the interests of real estate developers and gentrifiers and has disregarded oppressed people all over the city who are being pushed out of their communities and out of New York City.”
“Did you guys know the occupy people are supporters of de Blasio?
How come so many of the groups are run by same people? Aren’t you guys getting tired of the same old thing that doesn’t work? Who are you? Please identify the organizers of the group. Why does every action have the same 30 people at it?
Why organize on Facebook? Don’t you know it’s an NYPD surveillance tool. How many of you are working with the groups started by people from the occupy “movement?”
The protest blocked the sidewalk in front of the Sheraton for a few hours. Oddly, the police never moved them to the ubiquitous ‘pens’.
++ PART TWO : Some of what I observed (pics and videos) at the Gala Crashing ++
(Place cursor on picture to see slideshow of pictures)
Part 1 of 3-The usual carousel of hateful, racist chants from the Commie hoards as they protested Mayor “Red Bill” deBlasio, NYPD Commissioner Bratton and (of course )Israel
Part 2 of 3 – The “Fakestinians” decided to deny free speech rights to moi – following me and blocking my camera. Made them even more insane when I stepped inside their sidewalk-blocking-circle to film Imani Henry’s Commie-blather. Silly little provocateurs…
Part 3 of 3-The usual chants from the Commie hoards as they protested Mayor “Red Bill” deBlasio, Israel, NYPD Commissioner Bratton and tragically their actions will most likely send the Central Park horses to the slaughter-houses in Mexico.
Their guy WON and NOW they don’t want him in office.
Seems “Red Bill” broke with the Party Plan when he sided with the City Council decriminalization proposal, “I agree with NYPD’s Bratton on ‘broken windows” – Yep. And now, they are very,very angry. How could Bill even think of siding with that ‘Nazi’, Bill Bratton.
Has “Red Bill” really become a ‘bad little commie?” Not likely. ‘Tis all part of the Commie-game. Make it look like there is division in-the-ranks – but the goals FOR ALL remain the same:
Among those notably absent at the Sheraton Times Square Thursday night were city Comptroller Scott Stringer and Public Advocate (of the Working Families Party) Letitia James, potential de Blasio rivals in 2017. Both instead attended the Queens Democratic Party’s annual dinner at Antun’s banquet hall in Queens Village.
Sources at de Blasio’s fund-raiser said it was attended by no more than 150 people — most of them lobbyists. The de Blasio campaign put the count at 300 and said it raised $1 million.
WELCOME THE REFUGEES KICK OUT NAZIS, POLITICIANS, AND COPS
Call for a No Borders and Antifascist contingent to the 9/12 Syrian Refugee solidarity demonstration
In Budapest, Lampedusa, Lesvos, Berlin, Calais, Kobani, Manus Island Melilla, the Negev, Yarmouk, Rafa, Santo Domingo, San Antonio and Nogales, we see the same crisis, the same dehumanizing rhetoric. We are told those fleeing violence and poverty of in Latin America, North Africa, and the Middle East are contagions of instability, that in order to defend our national character, we must build walls and detention camps, and ruthlessly exploit the chosen few we allow in.
They call this the worst refugee crisis since World War II. And today, just as Jews, Roma, Queers and others were turned away by the Allies, the thousands of Syrian, Iraqis, Kurds, and Afghans now fleeing ISIS, Assad and Erdogan are labeled pariahs and infiltrators.
In Turkey, Hungary, Germany, Britain, Sweden, France, Greece, Israel and the United States, nationalist politicians and fascist groups have used the crisis to heighten the friend/enemy and inside/outside rhetoric that props up their disgusting militarism, bigotry, and ethnic cleansing.
Over the last four years, sections of the United States have begun to wake up and take to the streets, confronting the bourgeois state and the murdering racist police that protect it.
In New York this Saturday, hundreds will call for the United States to take in Syrian refugees. We will stand with them to push that rhetoric even further:
– Solidarity with all those displaced by bombs, markets, or discrimination – Abolish borders, and the nationalism and racism that depend on them – Free entry for Syrian refugees, and everyone else!
Invite friends! Bring your crew… you’ll know us by the antifa and black flags!
Long live social revolution! Down with tyranny! THE ANARCHIST FIGHTERS.
A member of NY-ICEgave me a heads-up on this rally. Glad I caught it.
SEIU was on hand— as always-
As was NY-ICE ( New Yorkers For Immigration control)
The age of the rally participants was YOUNG, obnoxious and very ANTI- America.
Followed by the older die-hard ‘seniors’ who won’t rest til America (and Israel) are both destroyed.
The more recent addition: the Muslims.
ALL working together to deconstruct-America by brainwashing our youth. One Day. One Class. One meeting at a time.
There is a sickness in our colleges. Our schools. Our text-books. A disease fed and nurtured by the soc/commie/progs (ALL of whom are welcomed by our media and our educators)
ANARCHY breeds contempt (for America)
Contempt and the death of FREEDOM (they just don’t ‘get’ that—yet—)
John Hawkins | Sep 12, 2015 – As millions of Syrian migrants stream into Europe, the Obama Administration has announced that the United States will be taking in 10,000 refugees… if we were picking nations to recruit new Americans from, Syria would be pretty close to the bottom of the list.
People speak Arabic there, not English… it’s a dictatorship… the people of Syria have little experience with democracy, freedom of the press or the rule of law….Syria is not a fertile breeding ground of the sort of people who are going to fit into the culture of a country like America and make a big contribution…
Syria is also an ISIS stronghold and the terrorist group has publicly promised to use the migrant crisis to sneak its members into Western countries. This is not an idle threat.
… the United States has already done more than any nation in history to help nations in the Middle East… We already take in 70,000 refugees a year, we have north of 5 million illegal immigrants here using their kids to live on the dole (and that’s a VERY conservative estimate), we spend billions we don’t have in foreign aid every year and the American people give more to charity than any other group of people on earth. When is enough, enough?
… It’s time that we let other nations do their fair share for once instead of risking the next 9/11 by taking in Syrian migrants.
In closing,a look at, what for now, is the local political front:
I missed the ubiquitous Linda Sarsour. I left after the main speech. Look at the picture behind her. That display must have come with/for Sarsour’s speech. (she is being groomed to run for political office in Brooklyn) so manipulating the hearts and simple-minds of the indoctrinated…is pro-forma.
Next up – I’m off to the Annual Muzzie Day Parade – 2015 –
Recently, I remembered taking pictures of this group of Japanese Nuclear War protestors gathering outside the SEIU (aka Commie) headquarters in NYC. (Another file I laid aside because I took the pictures with my old circa 2010 cell phone). With the threat of a Nuclear Iran, the time seemed right to post them.
It was May 4, 2010.They were going to the UN to protest at the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) Conference.
“The 2010 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) met at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 3 to 28 May 2010.
Japanese Union “No Nukes” members posed with this banner before they left SEIU Headquarters for the march to the UN.
Found more info on this protest in 2010 at SEIU’s website:
“Meeting in the 1199SEIU Bread and Roses Gallery were members of the Japan Peace Committee, the Osaka Association for a Non-Nuclear Government and the Osaka Federation on Prefectural and Municipal Workers’ Unions.” More on the UN conference they came to protest:
“The 2010 Review Conference was generally considered a success because it reached consensus where the previous Review Conference in 2005 ended in disarray, a fact that many attributed to the U.S. PresidentBarack Obama‘s commitment to nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament. Some have warned that this success raised unrealistically high expectations that could lead to failure at the next Review Conference in 2015. ”
The 2010 protestors were armed with Nuke Facts (Link is a Must Read) “NUKE FREE NOW!” “We are robbing the future to pay for the unneeded weapons of the past.
Now is the time to stop fighting last century’s war.
Now is the time to reset our priorities.
Now is the time to invest in the people and the programs to get America back on track.
— from a letter by Rep. Ed Markey to the members of the Super Committee —Japan Good/United States Bad. NUCLEAR BOMBS Very Bad-unless you mention Iran or China – Then….it’s like… “Never Mind”.A slide show of pictures
Point of Information: Every year, Marxist sympathizers protest the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki in 1945.“
In August 1945, during the final stage of the Second World War, the United States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The two bombings, which killed at least 129,000 people, remain the only use of nuclear weapons for warfare in history.
(TSM) Historians at one time remembered that, until we dropped “The Bomb”, the war started by Japan, had no end in sight. Or at least it wasn’t coming soon enough.
During the day US bombers dropped thousands of leaflets on 12 Japanese cities warning civilians to “flee or perish.” July 28th, 1945 (SATURDAY)
“We knew how to fight and win wars back then. Entire cities destroyed. Not that I rejoice over that history, but a great general stated, and I paraphrase, “Anything less than total warfare is immoral.”
Five years after I saw the Japanese and SEIU Nuclear protestors, we now face a future threatened by Obama’s Folly –a Nuclear Iran —
However, they stress in their Peace & Justice flyer, “Today, after 70 years, nearly 16,000 nuclear weapons—94% of them held by the USA and Russia—continue to pose an intolerable threat to humanity and the danger of nuclear war is growing… The USA plans to spend a trillion dollars over the next thirty years “ modernizing” its nuclear arsenal. The human cost of this is immeasurable—to our prospects for global peace and to our confidence in human survival.”
Nation-wide, America is protesting a Nuclear Iran–Where is SEIU? Where are those Japanese protestors? Where is Peace and Justice? I saw none of them in Times Square at the “Stop Iran Now Rally” on July 22, 2015.Knowing that Iran is eager to annihilate Israel (with the United States and the rest of the world’s Infidels thrown in for ‘good’ measure) Obama and Kerry continue their support of a Nuclear Iran. (Cue *crickets* from the Left)SEIU must be okay with a Nuclear Iran and their “enrichment” program. I’ve come across NO protests against a Nuclear Iran outside their headquarters.
Iran also states that its enrichment program is part of its civilian nuclear energy program, which is allowed under Article IV of the NPT. The Non-Aligned Movement has welcomed the continuing cooperation of Iran with the IAEA and reaffirmed Iran’s right to the peaceful uses of nuclear technology.
Good Nukes vs Bad Nukes.The Radical Left clamors to protect the nuclear ‘rights’ of Maniacs and Tyrants.
The P & J’s are dedicated, as usual, to their “August Action”. (Facebook link here) On August 6, 2015, peace & justice advocates will gather at the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab to call for the abolition of nuclear weapons. (With NO MENTION of IRAN) A comment does say, “Looks like Gaza and Syria”. www.trivalleycares.org
On Thursday, August 6, 2015, at 8 AM, Daniel Ellsberg, famed whistle blower and nuclear analyst, will return to Livermore Lab as a keynote speaker on the historic 70th anniversary of the US atomic bombing of Hiroshima. (BUT … “What about a Nuclear Iran?)
“Eight nations — China, France, India, Israel, Pakistan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States, have about 22,000 nuclear warheads (Russia and the US together have more than 90% of total nuclear weapons).
Around 8,000 warheads are deployed and 2,500 are on high alert (ready to be launched within 20 minutes).”
Allen West said it for us all, July 22, 2015, at the“Stop Iran Now Rally“. He spoke The Truth about the threat of a Nuclear Iran while, sadly, our government is blindly, or knowingly, pushing the U.S. (the World) towards a dreaded Dooms Day.
NOW IS the Time For All Good Men to Stand and FIGHT.

The Japanese weren’t the victims in WWII; they were the bad guys. They were perfectly willing to create a Hell on earth as long as their Emperor got to share time with Hitler in the infernal palace and they were allowed to be his little worker demons torturing the rest of the planet. Don’t feel sorry for Japan because it got nuked; feel sorry for the all the innocent lives that were lost because of that nation’s murderous lust for power.
