Nov. 19. 2022. The World Wide Freedom Rally-NY gathered at Union Square and then walked to Washington Sq. chanting "The Pandemic is over. We Will Not Comply and We Want Our Jobs Back"
But, Union Square was a mess. The holiday season ( pre Thanksgiving!) had already added a glut of seasonal merchant booths - along with the ever present Green Market - making it impossible to find the Freedom Rally. So I headed to Washington Sq.
Video as they arrived at Washington Sq. while making a mighty noise with " We Will Not Comply"
Lots of camaraderie (and drums) as well as one strange fellow (making a film of some sort perhaps).... strange - but not shy. That's so New York.
More signs as the crowd grew and speakers spoke to the continued need for a Worldwide FREEDOM Rally. Ending Illegal Mandates (that still haunt us). As "Save the Children" and "My Body,My Choice" filled the air.

.The people were warned that Gov. Hochul has big plans to create quarantine camps for a plandemic that BIDEN said has ended ... and yet, NY still elected this pretender, Kathy Hochul, Governor anyway.
We will NEVER comply as the LEFT continues to press for masks and illegal jabs. As long as the tyranny of Gov. Hochul and Mayor Adams continues, so will these rallies demanding our God-given Freedoms be restored.
Very short video from NY Freedom Rally:
Why is NYC’s arts community still punishing kids by forcing them to mask?
".... these cultural institutions have parents over a barrel. Because while New York City’s public-school kids 5 and up were freed from their masks March 7 (the mayor’s toddler mask mandate for ages 2 to 4 didn’t end until June 13), these partly publicly funded private fiefdoms can continue to mandate any ineffective mitigation they choose — with neither consequences nor motivation to restore normal for child visitors."
Speaking at the New York Times’ Dealbook Summit with Andrew Ross Sorkin (a financial columnist for The New York Times ) at what he said was against the advice of his lawyers, Bankman-Fried said that he did not knowingly commingle customer funds on FTX with funds at his proprietary trading firm, Alameda Research." [NY Post]
What a difference one month makes:
"FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried is set to be released on a $250 million bond and placed under house arrest at his parents’ California home following his first court appearance in Manhattan federal court Thursday." [NY Post]
And NOW we have Zelensky in the States, greeted by Biden and speaking to Congress while BEGGING for more money [NY POST]
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in Washington, DC, to co-host a White House press conference on Dec. 21.AP
Meanwhile, back to the speakers on November 30th [NY TIMES]
Part 1 video (approx 6 min) : Nov. 30, 2022.
In a mostly heavy rain (with an occasional respite) protesting the NY TimesDealBook Summit by demanding transparency and accountability re racketeering and conspiracy. This speaker criticized Ben Affleck as the token representative of the Celebrity Industrial Complex. Artists today are bought, paid and serviced .... by the New World Order. She warned against the Great Reset and the return of the degenerate Weimar Republic and concluded with, " Art is supposed to be about beauty with a capital "B"; Truth and Beauty. Instead, culturally, artistically, what is happening in our world today is the ugly ... nihilistic into extreme levels of ugliness.... When you can break down people and break down families and break down communities they're so much easier to take down."
Part 2 video (approx 2 min) Grifter, Sam Bankman-Fried was scheduled as an interviewee/speaker.
This fellow responded outside the NY TimesDealBook Summit, to the question, "Don't you think it's worth listening to the guy who tweeted out-Don't worry we're solvent. And then the next day everybody's money is gone. No promise for getting it back. ... Yeah.... I think it's worth listening to Sam Bankman-Fried from PRISON." (the rest was the female speaker and a strange accusation re Mark Zuckerberg.)
Video 3 (3:31) focused on Ukraine corruption. (Pres. Zelensky was one of the interviewee/speakers promoted at the NY TimesDealBook Summit)
Protestors were demanding transparency and accountability re racketeering and conspiracy. This speaker discussed The Color Revolution (2005).... funded by G. Soros. Also, topics were China and the 'rona'.
Video 4 (5:20) Pres. Zelensky was one of the interviewee/speakers promoted at the NY TimesDealBook Summit so corruption and the history between Ukraine and Russia was briefly discussed.
"How many think Ukraine is winning this war. There is no way...Russia going to win this war. Ukraine is going down, so need to launder as much money as they can."
Video5 (4:58) continued with Ukraine corruption. (Pres. Zelensky was one of the interviewee/speakers promoted at the NY TimesDealBook Summit)
"Putin is going to win this war. Were going to suffer for it and and Europe is suffering for it. Zelensky is a pawn. a kleptocrat. We're giving the billions....pilfered... funneled thru FTX to the Democrats. The biggest money heist in the world. SBF is being treated as someone who just made a mistake. He needs to be put behind bars for years and years and never coming out."
++++ A final look at a short recap from NY Times++++
DealBook SummitWorld Leaders, Business Titans and Crypto’s Fallen Star [NY Times]
Amazon’s Andy Jassy and President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine also spoke.
Mark Zuckerberg says that the App Store’s market dominance is ‘not good.’
A faltering economy left Amazon little choice but to execute mass layoffs, Andy Jassy said.
Netflix’s Reed Hastings regrets that the streaming service was late in introducing ads.
President Zelensky of Ukraine rebukes Elon Musk’s peace proposal.
TikTok C.E.O. Shou Chew says that ‘it’s too early’ for a big investment in the metaverse.
Yellen calls for more regulation of cryptocurrencies after ‘Lehman moment.’
"The problem with moviemaking is that it hasn’t “adapted to modern technology,” Ben Affleck told Andrew Ross Sorkin at The New York Times’s DealBook Summit on Wednesday.
“They still make movies with a lot of equipment, heavy cameras, practically speaking, a massive amount of money is missing,” he said. “I knew I could save 15 percent off the top.”
Affleck’s vision: Hollywood’s most powerful stars and off-camera people — directors, editors, costume designers, cinematographers — will all share in the profit. And they’ll also have a bigger say in the creative process, he promised.
Artists Equity has secured at least $100 million in financing from the private investment firm RedBird Capital Partners, and its founder, Gerry Cardinale, also appeared onstage on Wednesday. The studio has partnered with Amazon for its first movie, which will be about the business story behind the Air Jordan brand. Mr. Damon is starring in the movie, and Mr. Affleck is directing it." — Vivian Giang

Dec 4, 2022. Outside Marriott Marquis - Times Square. covid carolers "welcomed" the CEO of Pfizer, Dr. Albert Bourla, a veterinarian, with altered lyrics to the carols. Inside the Marriott, Dr. Bourla (as CEO of Pfizer) was being honored by Touro University.
Outside the Marriott Marquis, the Medical Freedom Alliance/Party "welcomed" Dr Albert Bourla with"We Wish YOU a VAXLESS Christmas" and other altered carols.
The Alliance is a coalition of those who have fought the mandates and refused forced vaccinations joining together to elect as public servants those who have done the same. "All confusion and fear CAN be done away with once and for all through UNDERSTANDING. Our country has never before witnessed this amount of propaganda, misinformation and censorship. Yet the truth still exists for anyone who makes the effort to seek out the proper sources. We see clearly the difference between agenda-driven “science” and facts…. Between party line “science” and facts." [https://mfany.org/]
INSIDE the Marriott was the Anniversary Gala of Touro College was honoring Pfizer's CEO, Dr. Albert Bourla.
"Dr. Kadish was introduced Dr. Bourla and stated that his achievement of bringing a safe and effective covid vaccine to market in just nine months is one that will be remembered for the ages throughout the world.
Dr. Bourla shared that Touro and Pfizer have a lot in common.“ Touro and Pfizer are both committed to innovation, not for the sake of innovation, but to move the world forward and to make an impact on people’s lives. Universities like Touro that are developing bright minds have a critical role to play, as companies like Pfizer advance global health. We are living in a world with incredible scientific discovery where we can turn disease into chronic conditions and be better prepared for future pandemics.”
The Heckler ( in blue jacket) didn't like the covid vax stats:
Flickr Slide show:
To the June 1, 2022 graduating class of Touro College, in addressing the graduates, keynote speaker Dr. Bourla described the monumental task of development an effective vaccine in a time span that would shatter previous records, and how it took an ambitious mindset to achieve it.
“You are fortunate to have found a school that allowed you to thrive in pursuit of your purpose. Now the world needs you to turn your purpose into action. The accelerating pace of innovation is cause for great hope, because it will result in improved health outcomes,” said Dr. Bourlas. “And each of you—whether you become a surgeon, a primary care physician, a researcher, a teacher or a clinician—you are on the front lines with an opportunity to have a significant impact on human lives.”
“At Pfizer, we referred to the development of our COVID-19 vaccine as a moonshot–a term shorthand for reaching big, for pursuing aspirational and difficult ventures. Today, I challenge you to pursue your own moonshot. To ask yourself how you can achieve something no one else has done before,” he said. “I encourage each one of you to aim high, higher than you can ever imagined. If at first you miss, don’t lower the target. Keep aiming high because when you hit, the reward will be great; for you and for the people that are dependent on you.”
The TRUTH SHOULD SET US ALL FREE of the Pfizer tyranny .... but not as long as the Dems are clutching the mandate mania. THEY Just can't let go:
A middle-aged Hochul supporter assaulted a Zeldin supporter, Angie Torres (with an assist from a NY City Council woman, Crystal Hudson). Angie had her sign torn and was was throttled. Choked ! by a large middle aged male.
The NYPD arrested NO ONE that night. NYPD Deputy Inspector Spataro let them both GO. With no charges! [@leeroypress ]
SO, on November 12, a protest Demanding Justice For Angie gathered outside the 6th precinct. It went on for hours, demanding the NYPD Deputy Inspector Spataro either DO HIS JOB or RESIGN.
Activists demanded deputy inspector Spataro be fired because he was the head officer on duty that night . The victim was Angie Torres. The NYPD claimed the man (unidentified) was trying to help break up the fight. [https://www.instagram.com/reel/Ck5_KijggiG/]
They officers teased that perhaps there might be an arrest coming, but so far - NADA.
Flickr Slide show- Pictures of the protest on Nov 12 outside the precinct went on for hours as they demanded justice for Angie.

And then, the next day, on November 13, the protestors went to Bklyn to protest Councilwoman Crystal Hudson's participation in Angie's assault; demanding that she RESIGN. [@leeroypress ]

Oct 23, 2022. Upper West Side (UWS) in Manhattan, a stronghold of the UWS LIBS who predictably keep the hard-core soc.commie.progs in OFFICE.
Dedicated to the One Party government destroying New York, they are the Woke Brigade.
HOWEVER, this day, a politically and racially diverse group of New Yorkers showed those "Wake Up Dems" a LOUD and confident OPPOSITION to what they are selling. They are here, not so silent, and growing!
Even though there was a mighty push to WAKE UP the Dems, reminding them to VOTE BLUE, their governor was visibly in absentia.
Governor Hochul must have 'slept in' cause the great and wonderful ... and currently unelected Gov ... was a No Show.
Let leading her roster of Dem speakers was Congressman Jerry Nadler (has he ever met a commie he hasn't admired).
And, the Working Families darling, Attorney General Letitia (Tish) James.
Letitia A. "Tish" Jamesis an American lawyer and current NY State Attorney General. She was the fourth New York City Public Advocate, who was admitted to practice law in New York State in 1989; the first member of the Working Families Party to win office in New York State and the first third-party member to be elected to the NYC Council since 1977.
Her cause célèbre : destroy President Donald Trump, his friends and his family, with a kangaroo court machine (any proceeding attempting to imitate "a fair trial or hearing" but run by lies, prejudice and hatred is illegitimate) Just like Tish.
Letitia James, a lawyer with an agenda, not an Open Mind. BUT NO ONE TALKS ABOUT THIS because the media continues to hide the real Tish James' from her own words. We should be asking "Why was this woman was EVER allowed to be Attorney General"
( In 2017) Letitia encouraged RIOTS in the streets as she threatened Pres.Trump, who she claimed to be illegitimate, with "I will see you in court". [see video]
On Jan 25, 2017: (Letitia James at a Muslim Immigrant Rights Rally) "If you honor the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, then you have an obligation. Whenever you see a government that is lawless, you’ve got an obligation and a duty to RESIST. RESIST. RESIST.
And so we’ve gotta stand up to the Federal Government. We’ve gotta stand up to bullies. We’ve gotta stand up to an administration that is “too male, too pale and too stale”.
Mr. President, you and your Executive Orders, you have turned back progress for decades. That puts you on notice, we will resist and we will ultimately see you in court [TSM]
I say to Donald Trump, you are NOT my President. I will resist you and stand up to you and I know there is an ARMY out there that will join me. I need my young people to organize and organize and organize. It is up to you, to get out in the streets ..."
Tish James – Treason or Patriotism?
Also, on June 29, 2017, Letitia “Tish” James, NYC Public Advocate & Working Families Party darling :continued to refer to President Trump as an ILLEGITIMATE President, with many references to things UN-Consitutional while stressing they must continue to RESIST, RESIST, RESIST this administration. (TSM]
How are Letitia James statements not conflicts?
As Community Advocate for NYC, she declared she was at war with MEN: White Men. Men who were " TOO MALE,TO PALE and TOO STALE".
So - of course- James REFUSED to debate her "too pale" opponent, Michael Henry:
“The failure to engage in debate is completely undemocratic,” Henry said Sunday. “Letitia James won’t respond to a November 2 debate invitation because she cannot defend her record on crime and corruption before New Yorkers. The last time she took the debate stage in 2018, she promoted a completely cashless bail system and it’s not working.” [NY Post]
Flickr Slide Show: While the Dems attempted to cheer lead and WAKE up their UWS fellow travelers, a diverse, confident and LOUD opposition crowded Verdi Square in support of Lee Zeldin and the Republican ticket.
4 short videos. (Fun) Part 1 - Mark Levine (Manhattan Borough Pres) pointed out that"Trumpians" - and their hatred- were in the crowd. The very LOUD opposition was pro Zeldin for Gov. (Arrest Kathy Hochul. We demand Compensation)
Part 2 - HARD LEFT, Congressman, Jerry Nadler (who is very short) could not be seen over the crowd. Heard a few statements from Nadler. (opposition in the crowd was LOUD) " Republican Party doesn't believe in Free Elections", " Democracy is on the ballot", "Get Out The Vote. Save This Country"
Part 3 - A protestor holding RFK Jrs The Real Dr. Fauci book high above crowd, seemed to get too close to the stage for Levine, so the NYPD dragged him out of the crowd. (he broke no laws, so they did not hold him).
LOTS of boos aimed at the the Woke Dems and AG Tish James..
Part 4: Intro Sen Brad Lander. Had to shout over the LOUD opposition. pressed these issues: women's rights, racist memes and working people unions. And labeled Republicans as election deniers and voting rights suppressors. "Don't get distracted", he said, "there's a lot of HATERS out there." Then 2 State Senators Serrano and Hoylman streessed their PROGRESSIVE values. While the opposition For Zeldin remained LOUD.
.Kathy HOCHUL was a cowardly NO SHOW. For those who may not know, she is the unelected Governor of New York. It was advertised she would be present to "Get Out The Vote". However, NO Kathy. (Though a few days later she did manage to attend her ONE debate with Lee Zeldin where she managed to embarrass her self. (Win some - Lose some, Kat)

“When you see essential businesses like pharmacies closing their doors because of crime, that’s an alert,” he told The Post. “We would like to see and hear about proposals that will address crime and policies on public safety.” ... “Most of us have determined that Zeldin is speaking our language,
Meanwhile, the slander rolls on. They continue to claim the enemy ... to their version of democracy ... is ONLY the Republican party and it's followers.
The third-ranking House Democrat [House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC)] played the Nazi card ahead of expected Republican wins in next week’s midterm elections, claiming the US is “on track to repeat what happened in Germany.”
“The question is,” Clyburn went on, “are we going to have a society that everyone can participate in? Or are we going to have an autocracy?”
I would advise Rep. James Clyburn to take an intense look at the history of the Democratic [Party] when speaking about Nazi Germany,” one critic tweeted. [NY POST]
Top Republicans looking to NY to flip the House as blue state remains in play before Election Day [NY Post]
New York — of all places — is in play as a swing state on Election Day.
Republicans need to flip just five seats to take control of the House and snatch the speaker’s gavel from California Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
“Democrats control every level of government in New York and frankly the voters are fed up with the results we’ve seen. That’s the other reason I’m very confident we’re going to have a good night in New York.”

Seems like every week a protest in support of Ukraine fills Duffy Square. So many I haven't kept up. This one, however, caught my eye because it was Belarus vs Putin. But, I was confused, cause wasn't Belarus siding with Putin? So WHO exactly was protesting on Sept 24, 2022 in Duffy Sq - NYC.
Belarussians Protest in Times Square, Putin's Invasions.
"... a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. (...)[Wiki]
..." The European Union, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States have all imposed sanctions against Belarus because of their rigged 2020 election and political oppression during the ongoing protests in the country. Further sanctions were imposed in 2022 following the country's role in the invasion of Ukraine." [Wiki]
What I didn't see were signs addressing their fears of war to include Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko. Why only to his mentor and comrade, Vladimir Putin? The Belarusian Enlightenment League of America (BELA) wants a no aggression pact, but the whole Russia, Ukraine, Belarus terrain is riddled with complications. But, clearly these protetors did not want WAR with Russia OR Ukraine.

UPDATE (3 weeks later) re the Lukashenko, Putin drama:
With Putin under pressure, Belarus edges closer to joining war in Ukraine [Reuters]
LONDON, Oct 12 (Reuters) - "A flurry of military activity in Belarus this week has caught the attention of Ukraine and the West as a potential sign that President Alexander Lukashenko may commit his army in support of Russia's flailing war effort in Ukraine.
Lukashenko has ordered troops to deploy with Russian forces near the Ukraine border, and his defence ministry says "combat readiness" drills are under way. On Tuesday, the interior ministry held exercises to eliminate "sabotage groups" near Yelsk, only 20 km (12 miles) from the border with Ukraine.
Belarus allowed itself to be used as a launchpad for Russia's Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine but has not joined the fighting directly. "
Oct 11, 2022
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, global powers have picked sides and they have been pushing to isolate Russia. One nation that has stood unconditionally with Russia is its trusted ally Belarus. Russian President Vladimir Putin has constantly had Belarusian president Lukashenko's support even before the start of the Russian offensive. [WION you tube]
Oct 15, 2022 - Belarus Wavers as Putin Presses It to Join Ukraine War
"The country’s strongman, Aleksandr Lukashenko, finds himself in a bind. He survives with support from Russia, but entering the fight could be “political suicide.” [NY Times] "...two years ago after a fraud-tainted election, the Eastern European nation’s strongman leader, Aleksandr G. Lukashenko, was propped up by the Kremlin, which sent security officers and money to support him. Today, eight months after Russia invaded Ukraine, Mr. Lukashenko’s Russian-enabled grip on power risks slipping as Moscow pressures him to get more involved in the faltering military campaign next door in Ukraine."
Sadly, these protests do not seem to affect an end to war. Not with Putin in charge. Or, perhaps I just don't have enough info.
