"Stop Iran Now" Rally- NYC (pics & vids) 7-22-15








 From StopIranRally.Org.
 

Our aims:

1. An end to the farce being perpetrated against the American people with a pending deal which will endanger America and our allies.







2. A restoration of the ORIGINAL demands – NO nuclear military capability, NO centrifuges and authority for any and all unannounced inspections of all known and any future facilities discovered.

 3. Providing an understanding that a failure to STOP IRAN NOW will necessitate a military response later.

 
"Our mission is to educate our countrymen on the dangerous accord being negotiated in Geneva that will soon be put up for a vote in Congress."

"...as we consider Obama’s Iran deal. The Constitution makes treason a ground for impeachment, but it seems to have been outside Madison’s contemplation that a president would actually be so insidious as to use his foreign-affairs power to give aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States. On that score, note that as soon as Obama’s deal was announced, not only was Iran’s foreign minister vowing to continue funding jihadist terror; the regime’s “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was also extolling the continued Iranian call for “Death to America.”

Some observations from July 22, 2015. The day of "The Rally For Peace Through Strength" includes pictures and two short videos with excerpts from Times Square- NYC.

StopIranRallyPoster.png 
Around 5 pm, I arrived at the S/E corner of 42nd St and 7th Ave.  I made a decision to carry one camera and no tripod; I could to be more mobile that way in the press 'box". But, crammed between 3 cameramen, taller than myself, added to the challenge. (I was missing my ladder and tripod)

 
Still, I was able to take pictures of the jam-packed crowd that surrounded us.

Across the street. On the sidewalks. Everywhere I could see, there was a crowd of people pressing to get close to the speakers stage.

Part 1 slide show:

 


This was no local lightly-attended rally. America took this protest very seriously In NY and other cities across the country, protests have been held in Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix, Winnipeg, Los Angeles and San Diego. Will Senator Schumer "Kill The Deal"? Can the POTUS Treachery be stopped?

America has spoken, " ... the deal with Iran is a danger to the US, to Israel, and to the entire world, and the Obama administration is engaged in an act of desperation bordering on treachery." (AFSI)

The Rally had many fine speakers lined up but, looking at the list, there was no way this was coming in at two hours and, since it was live-streamed, I focused on pictures and ... listening...


VIDEO Part 1 - is mostly the host, Jeffrey Wiesenfeld and Mort Zuckerman (with crowd shots and pleas from the stage to the massive crowd to "keep moving south on 7th Ave". Everyone was jamming up near the stage.


 


VIDEO - Part 2- Excerpts include Former NY Governor George Pataki and Alan Dershowitz. as the crowd shouts "Kill This Deal!"





I had to leave at 7:30,hoping Allen West would speak before then. Didn't happen. But, perhaps they were saving the best for last. No way of knowing. I had to leave. I was going to miss the one speaker I came to hear, former Congressman, Lt. Col (ret) Allen B. West.

It was 7:30 as I headed down 7th avenue to take a look at the 6 blocks of "Stop Iran Now Rally" attendees (10-12,000 according to the police).
 
There were crowds of people on the side streets as well.


But, due to the original stop time for the rally, the crowds were thinning as I got closer to 38th St. (this is looking towards 39th)


Part 2- Slide show

 


38th St. was the location for those who came out to support a nuclear Iran.  An officer told me the opposition started out at 40th street but with the swelling of the Rally they were forced to stand at 38th street.
 
By 7:45 there was just the Neturei Karta. I have seen no reports on these protestors, so maybe this is all there was.

The six smallish sound speakers on the stage (pictured below) projected the sound to the 12,000 easily. It was amazing!
 DSC_1719 copy2
As I left the Neturei Karta, I realized at about 7:50 - I was hearing very clearly- at 38th st - with no distortion - Allen West's fabulous speech!

(VIDEO from Jew Tube)




Wish they'd had a video screen for those so far away. (I've seen screens used at this location.)

 

But, on a the good side, anyone who had to stand that far from the stage heard all the speeches. Loud and clear.

This was a powerful protest. Kudos to those who put it together. Having organized such events myself, I know it takes a lot of patience and a lot of hours. So my last observation is really a suggestion for the speakers.


"... a diverse group of speakers -- experts, dignitaries, and public figures dedicated to preventing a nuclear Iran....


*SHORTER SPEECHES* Please.  Too often, after the speakers made their most important points, they would 'start over' --- making a good speech too long (sigh)

24  speakers, with lots to say, even 3 hours wasn't enough. The pressure to get it all said in so little time is perhaps what we all might be experiencing.


Tough days ahead with little time to make a difference.
"So Much Evil. So Little Time."

The speakers (9) I heard in the first two hours:
John Batchelor Radio Host WABC-AM, Monica Crowley Political Commentator, board member Center for Security Policy; Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law Professor; US Congressman Trent Franks , U.S. Representative for Arizona’s 8th congressional district, Vice-Chair of the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities on the House Armed Services Committee, and a member of the Strategic Forces subcommittee; Caroline Glick , Deputy Managing Editor of The Jerusalem Post; Kevin McCullough , Radio Host from WMCA and 970 The Answer; Robert Morgenthau , Manhattan District Attorney from 1975 to 2009, and of counsel with the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, George Pataki, Former Three-Term Governor of New York, in office during 9/11 ; Mortimer Zuckerman, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of U.S. News & World Report and the publisher of the New York Daily News and former Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.


The remaining speakers (15) in the last hour after I left (including Allen West, ) : Genevieve Wood, Senior Fellow in Communications and Senior Contributor, “The Daily Signal,” from The Brookings Institute; General Paul Vallely, Former US Army Major General and Chairman of Stand Up America;Richard Kemp, Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan;Tony LoBianco, “The French Connection” Actor and Activist;Herbert I. London,  President London Center for Policy Research, President Emeritus of Hudson Institute and former Dean of New York University; Kasim Hafeez, Founder of “The Israel Campaign” and Christians United for Israel’s Outreach Coordinator;Pete Hoekstra, Former U.S. Congressman and Chair of the House Intelligence Committee;Clare M. Lopez, Former CIA officer, Terrorism and Iran Expert at Center for Security Policy;U.S. Navy Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons , Former Commander in Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and Senior U.S. Military Representative to the United Nations; James Woolsey, Former Director of the CIA and Chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies;Steven Emerson, Founder of The Investigative Project on Terrorism;Frank Gaffney, Founder of the Center for Security Policy;Anne Bayefsky,Professor and Director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust and President of Human Rights Voices;David Brog, Executive Director, Christians United for Israel.


KILL THIS DEAL!!

A NUCLEAR IRAN Protest - Is Islamic Rule World-Wide their goal?

Before the protest against a Nuclear Iran begins tomorrow, Wednesday, July 22, 2015 - in Times Square - I'm posting some videos and pics that seemed relevant. A Look at the Left in 2012 , as they demanded "Hands Off Iran" and FOR a Nuclear Iran.

I went through some old files (again) and found some video I never posted (due to a faulty camera phone) from Feb 4, 2012, in Duffy Square - NYC. For those who can handle listening to the Commie-Left begging FOR a Nuclear Iran, trashing Israel (again)  and protesting a Nuclear U.S. (Game On)

Part 1, a couple of the OWS 'echo' speeches, by Brower and Flounders. (My 2011 camera phone skips, but the speeches are still heard thanks to the echos)




Part 2- Their march towards 42nd was filled with many  signs and, of course,  OWS drums ....



Typical anti-American screeds and smarmy posters beloved by the Commie Insurgents. Led by America Haters, Elaine Brower and Debra Sweet of World Can't Wait and joined by proud fellow traveler, Sara Flounders of Ramsey Clark's IAC.  And Barack Hussein Obama. His actions though-out his presidency have exposed his anti-U.S. agenda, time and again. Obama. In lock-step with the anarchists promoting a Nuclear Iran that day in 2012, and NOT in-tune with the AMERICANS who will come to Time Squares tomorrow . GAME ON!

Signs - posters - lots of them. (click picture for slide show)
2012 was a very busy year for the insurgency-
In 2015. Ah'jad is gone. But, the tyranny of the Imams continues. Forever, it seems, with "theological rationales for the prospect of a rapprochement with Iran’s Western adversaries."
The Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, The Supreme Leader of Iran in 2015, has the final say in all Iranian political and national security matters. Read more on this horrific pact with 'shatan' : "How a 7th Century Cleric Led to the Iran Deal & To shore up domestic support, Tehran repeatedly invoked the ‘heroic flexibility’ of Imam Hassan in the year 661.

A  Nuclear Iran awaits a final vote in Congress  (thanks to Obama and Company for aiding this insanity).

From Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), "New Yorkers are reaching out to “Senator Schumer, who  says he will “do the right thing.” These are unprecedented times and it’s time to stop this deal, which is disastrous for America and our allies in the Middle East.  Please do not allow partisan politics or any other considerations to cloud your judgment.”

Meanwhile, NO protests from any Iranians. Not for a long while. The silence from the Iranians, once boldly seeking freedom from Islamic Tyranny, is not a good sign.

     But, tomorrow, July 22, 2015 

AMERICAN WILL NOT BE SILENT. 
STOP IRAN NOW!

Many National organizations are sponsoring the NYC Times Square Rally. From Stand With Us to AFSI to ZOA to Simon Wiesenthal Center to EMET to RAJE to NCPA (and many, many  more). The impact will be profound if there are other demonstrations, even from a few hundred to a few thousand in many other cities.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

"We have to go national ...  we have to show that we are a national movement, not a singular group from New York.
The country objects to the Iran Appeasement Deal overwhelmingly and with the apocalyptic Islamists nuclear bomb, including North Korea, and ICBMs, all of American cities are in danger" (Dr. Marvin Belsky)

Illegal Trespassers 'Say NO' U.S. Immigration Laws-For them (NYC) 7-10-15




11701004_10153398665752381_1571759743074267012_oNO U.S. Immigration Law? Really? After a few years of filming and observing these mostly Spanish-speaking illegals and their handlers (white,union Commie-led insurgents) the deconstructing of America is on-a- roll. From Detroit to New Orleans to Seattle to San Francisco, corruption is destroying these major cities (easily)as the illegals vote once (twice) As many times as they are required. The Big Red Unions need the illegals. So, give them the uneducated dupes of the world and they will incrementally take over governments (from the smallest to the top of the heap). They have and they are succeeding with little opposition. Amazing.
Coverage of this particular protest was light but predictable.  NY1, NTD (FalunGong TV) and El Mundo. These were the only media I could identity.

A demonstration was outside the offices of an American citizen, Robert Mercer, who supports our U.S. Immigration Laws and the Candidates who support keeping our borders safe. However, these Illegal trespassers and their Marxist-Leftist-Union handlers want NO U.S. immigration laws ----for them---and Robert Mercer is 'the Enemy'.





NYC Councilman, Carlos Menchaca, a 30 yrs old Mexican-born/gay/COMMUNIST, who was ELECTED by 'the people'  of NYC, was one of the leaders of the protest, who also opposes Mercer supporting U.S. Immigration Law.
"Menchaca, in November 2013, became the first councilor of Mexican  origin to be elected in New York"


 In Feb 2014, this NYC Councilman  (2nd from the right in picture)led a DREAM ACT Committee [Council hearing on giving Illegals ID's so they can get "services"]
 
  However, the ID portion of the meeting never happened. (without notice to the public-aka NY-ICE)

"The New York City Council's "Committee on Immigration" was supposed to have met on what is actually a Federal issue: ID's for Illegals."

Everyone sitting in City Hall that day seemed to know the ID's were now off the table. The committee was seamlessly focused on offering FREE legal aid to illegal trespassers; encouraging scofflaws to STAY by offering NYC Sanctuary City freebees.

This was the social justice largess of the day: FREE Legal Representation for Illegal Trespassers.

Back to the protest outside Robert Mercer's office.  

On Friday, July 10th,2015, at the DACA/DAPA hearing,

The Fifth Circuit Court heard one-hour arguments, each for the plaintiff and defendant...the arguments will be whether or not the Obama administration followed the appropriate procedures in issuing the 2014 immigration executive action.

The protestors 'glowed' in the hot sun with a dripping disrespect for the U.S. Rule of Law, for U.S. Immigration Law. NO respect for the country they are invading was required. Just entitlement. After all, they have Obama"s Executive Action waiting for them (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA)
While mauling Old Glory, this woman below, smirked and laughed with her friend as she chanted  "I love Amereeca" - Cue: laugh, smirk - then repeat -

WHAT does she love about Amereeca? (Our laws?)
Perhaps it's the promise of Free Health Care. Free Food. Free Rent. Free college. It's all FREE, thanks to the tax dollars of the America citizens who live here legally.

DREAM Act, Si! OPEN BORDERS. Si!!

U.S. IMMIGRATION LAWS must be waived if you are brown, Spanish-speaking (it helps)
Unemployed, uneducated and/or never been vaccinated for good measure. DAPA - DACA says they can jump to the head-of-the-line.

With little to No Help for the many educated, white (some Spanish- speaking) immigrants who would like to stay in the U.S. on work-permits (LEGALLY). They are stone-walled and often rudely denied permits, even though they would cause NO burden to our hospitals and schools.

Wrong color. Too well educated. Too independent. Can't be counted on to VOTE the Commie-Line. Go HOME! YOU are not welcomed by the hard-cored Leftists running the very corrupt Illegal-Trespassers voting-machine.

Ask anyone in this protest crowd (who speaks English) about the very stern immigration laws South-of-the-border: Cue *Crickets*. Does not compute.
Ask about the career criminals that MEXICO doesn't want? (*silence*)

CRIMINALS for whom the Commie-to-the-core Leftists throw down the RED carpet and open-the-gates to the U.S. (*crickets-mind-numbing silence*)
illegals 3 copy 2
There was opposition to the Leftists
who are dedicated to breaking and ignoring U.S. Immigration Law.

Notably, in spite of Obama's active support of these trespassers, America is against the 'SAY NO' to U.S. Immigration Law industry.

Americans 'SAY NO' to OPEN BORDERS instead!
That's why "The Donald" is (or was) flying up the potential presidential list. Donald Trump is NOT afraid to say what is on the minds of most Americans when it comes to Illegal Trespassing. He certainly lacks tact "on occasion" (McCain looms large at the moment) but Trump is challenging the Marxist Left stranglehold on our National safety; that is encouraging and inspiring.
 
 The opposition: Even though NY-ICE was unable to make a large showing (this was 11 AM on a weekday. Most people have to work!) These stalwarts did a great job, vocally as well as visually.

I heard them from across the noisy crowd before I saw them. (red circle below)


 NY-ICE counter-demonstrated against the unions and Marxist groups promoting Illegal law breakers; who demonstrated for the implementation of D.A.C.A. and D.A.P.A. executive amnesties because they are currently tied up in Court. The Illegals and their Marxist enablers demonstrated in front of a business they mischaracterized as a proponent of "false" data about the negative impact of these amnesties in the U.S.

 

Stop the Marxist drivel. Stop the lies. Spread the Truth about Illegal Trespassers; what they have done and will continue to do to the American Economy by ignoring our Laws.

 


They never stop. Neither should WE.
illegals 3 copy
 
"President Obama has wielded his “mighty pen” once to show those who want to enter the country illegally they can go ahead and do it because this President won’t stop them.

That’s why Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) is a co-sponsor of three immigration bills to protect the American people.

The first, H.R. 3011, Kate’s Law, would create a five-year mandatory minimum sentence for any illegal alien reentering the country after being deported. 
The second, H.R. 3009, Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities, restricts federal funding to sanctuary cities so that the American people are not subsidizing local law enforcement agencies that refuse to comply with federal law.  
The third, H.R. 399, Secure Our Borders First Act, requires that the Secretary of Homeland Security gain, and maintain, operational control of the international borders of the United States.

We can’t get serious about immigration reform until we stop people from crossing the border illegally."

Stand UP Fight Back 'cause WE are AMERICA.

Celebrate Israel Parade - A Look at Both Sides (Pro & the BDS Con)


May 31, 2015. NYC. The Annual Israel Day Parade.
logo-67-usa222

CELEBRATING Israel, That's WHY we were there. To CELEBRATE!
But, the BDS'ers (Boycott, Divest Sanction)  ... the Neturei Karta .... the NIF (The New Israel Fund) ...
They came to RAIN on this parade not to praise it.
The insanity of  the Prog - Commie- Leftist Jewish organizations (the NIF, Adalah , Breaking The Silence) offended the eye as they marched IN the parade (Thanks to the JCC )






Other anti-Zionistas stood along the parade route with obnoxious signs and banners. Liars, proclaiming Israel to be an Apartheid State.

The Boycott-Divest-Sanction (BDS) movement against Israel...  everyone ignores the simple truth staring them in the face: The so-called “Two-State Solution” is the sole cause of the BDS movement.  Until the Israeli government exposes the “Two-State Solution” as a charade and a fraud, the Israeli government’s de jure endorsement of a “Two-State Solution” will continue to fuel the BDS movement.

At 59th and 5th avenue, when it came to who was PRO-Israel ... these two giving a thumbs-down to the BDS'rs ... were like most in attendance: Proud and Clear!

Mega-Dittos

Of course, the parade was a HUGE success (IN SPITE of the anti-Zionists.)

"New York's annual celebration of Israel was greeted by tens of thousands of spectators devoted to the Jewish state with about 30,000 participants"



As the Prog-Soc-Lefties marched in opposition to the State of Israel, some on their side found the JPAC to be an odd bunch-of-coconuts, even for them:

"Who the heck is the Jewish Political Action Committee?"

Said Gilli Getz , a photographer posting on the 'progressive' JewSchool blog:

"From the photos it looks like the Westboro Baptist Church picked up some day laborers outside a Home Depot, gave them some offensive signs, taleisim and Na-Nach hats and paid them to stand at the parade."
                                       (look closely at who is holding the JPAC signs)















 






















 The view from behind, was when I first took notice of the unusual participants holding signs for the  JPAC .


Even the JPAC flyer criticized the BDS Movement....
jewish


As for Getz and his defense of the BDS Movement, he complains about the attempts to block the anti-Israel 'progressives' from marching in the CELEBRATE Israel Parade. (posted on JewSchool)
He continues, "I was marching as I do every year at the Celebrate Israel parade with the Progressive cluster. Despite a loud and nasty campaign to keep us out of the parade, we marched proudly under the banner of New Israel Fund, T’ruah, Partners for Progressive Israel and Americans for Peace Now.

Celebrating the inspiring Israeli human rights organizations and the fight in Israel for social and economic justice and the end of the occupation." (VSB: They were NOT Celebrating Israel)

A short VIDEO
of the anti-Israel Neteuri Karta and the JPAC protestors being challenged by the JOYFUL kids as they marched up Fifth Ave.

Anyone who cares about Israel stands against the New Israel Fund.
מצעד-בניו-יורק
From Stand With Us regarding the BDS Movement:


"The last decade has seen a sharp uptick in the amount of traction gained by BDS and its associated partners."

"Recently major supermarket chains like Tesco in the UK have begun labeling products made in Israel, while a major Norwegian state fund has divested from Israel companies, Danya Cebus and Africa Israel, for their involvement in building projects over the Green Line."

Some of the PRO-Israel supporters
were at 63rd and Fifth. AFSI and JCC Watch. They had banners and signs to expose, chastise and protest the participation of these anti-Zionist groups.


Shamefully, these groups were sanctioned by Alisa Doctoroff and the Parade's organizers at the JCC.

2011-10-07-FirstJewishPresidentAbout 8 days after the CELEBRATE Israel Parade, Obama, our first 'Jewish' President (!) succeeded in denying ISRAEL as country-of-birth.

"The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a law that would let American citizens born in Jerusalem have Israel listed in passports as their country of birth, saying it encroached on the president's exclusive power to recognize foreign governments. It can no longer be listed a Country of Birth on American passports (for anyone born in Jerusalem). "
