And the date on that Gregorian calendar was July 4, 2018 when, her name is Therese Patricia Okoumou, an Abolish ICE  protester, decided to scale the Statue of Liberty, also known as Babylon, in I think a feat that no man has seen before that does not seem humanly possible, during those July 4th celebrations and that Rise and Resist Abolish I.C.E  protest for all the world to see. And she said she would not come down until all the children are released. And those Occupy ICE and Occupy ICE NYC protests have taken place in many states recently and have been in the headline news ever since ICE started separating families when removing them from America. And if those photos that find themselves posted above of  Therese Patricia Okoumou occupying the Statue of Liberty do not seem symbolic of freedom, than what does. And what about that passport again?
And in other thoughts about that passport, for what reason is the number of that passport immigration law that prohibits freedom of travel amongst humanity anywhere on planet earth, and that Section 666 Social Security Act, cashless society, national I.D., the number of your name to receive any state services and everything else in between thing, 666? Is this that save no man that he may buy or sell except that he have the mark of the beast thing in the book of Revelations.

And then there’s Reverend Billy And The Stop Shopping Gospel Choir FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE variation of that pastor Martin.Niemöller passage that would be funny if it weren’t so true.

FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE druggies who tried to make their fantasy economy away from the bigger killers, but I did not speak out, because I’m white with powder cocaine.

Then they came for the immigrants,  flooded by Clinton’s subsidized corn and dragged screaming by ICE from their homes, and I did not speak out, because I’m sitting here waiting for my Mexican cook to bring me my pasta special.

Then they came for the poverty-dizzied young from zip codes like Bed-Stuy and the Bronx, fed into the for-profit prison pipeline, and I did not speak out, because where do you start? It’s a national operation run by Wall Street. 


Then one day the Earth came for me, the ocean turned to acid sweeping through the streets, and I cannot protect my family, because America is declared a permanent emergency, and the cops and soldiers are the same guy,  jailing us in our upstairs apartment, and no-one is left to speak for me because permits to speak in public are rationed by Chase Bank.


And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street day two thousand and something, I think. And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast. And what else is there that I can say that has not already been said in occupy ice time. No one is free when others are oppressed. Occupy Wall Street. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.  And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. And so I happened to find myself at another May Day event yesterday in New York City as I went to go vend those DecorForU #blacklivesmatter, #notmypresident, #occupywallstreet, #berniesanders, #noplicestate, #yoga, #brooklyn & #unionsquarepark necklaces, magnets, key chains & pins for $2 each at Union Square Park.  And this event happened to be a Fight Together! Strike to Win! May Day NYC 2018 May Day event held by Peoples Power Assemblies and Workers World Party on this day.  And there was also a May Day Bike Bloc Anticapitalist Ride at Union Square Park on this day as well who I think were also giving away free dumpster dived food.  And if it’s free then it’s for me.  And then there was also a host of other street performers and vendors in this historic revolutionary gathering of a park as well. And that Fight Together! Strike to Win! May Day NYC 2018 facebook event invite read something like:

MAY DAY WHERE? UNION SQUARE! 

Join us on International Workers’ Day to celebrate the collective power of migrants and workers in New York and around the world! 

12 PM Program Start
2 PM Break 
3 PM Program Resumes
5 PM March 

We will be marching alongside Immigrant Worker Justice at 5pm, who will be ending their NYC Freedom Cities May Day + IWJ Tour 2018 ! at Union Square! Support their tour which starts at 2pm! 

Over the past year, we have seen the Trump administration consistently deceive the American people as attacks against migrants and workers only worsen. We have seen rapidly growing numbers of ICE raids, thousands of deaths due to military air strikes throughout the Middle East, and the approval of a $700 billion dollar defense budget. At the same time, we have seen an intensification of resistance—from migrants putting their bodies on the line to stop deportations to huge strikes of teachers demanding better working conditions across the country. We must unite to demand an end to the growing imperialist crisis that burdens the working class, migrants, and people of color—as well as celebrate the growing resistance of our communities!

The organizations that are putting together May Day @ Union Square 2018 are not only resisting Trump but holding the whole corrupt system accountable. We are groups coming together representing Black, Brown, People of Color, Trans, LGBTQGNC, Migrant, Muslim, People with Criminal Convictions, Indigenous communities, and Workers who are uniting to defend our people!

Well it’s that spring time of year again when another one of The Shadow squatter May Day concerts happened again this past weekend in that neighborhood of the Lower East  Side or East Village you can call it for real estate marketing purposes maybe, as well as a host of other outdoor events happening in that ever changing babylon city of New York.  Only this concert seemed to be all punk rock and beyond.  And that May Day w/ Haram, Rubber, Olor a muerte, Headsplitters & Junta facebook event invite read something like:

And if I were to type the names of victims who have lost their lives to police brutality and guns from this Stop Police Terror poster that I have, some of the names would be Kimani Gray, James Rivera Jr., Ramarley Graham, James Brissette, Malcolm Ferguson, Jaime Gonzalez, Tyisha Miller, Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, John Crawford, Nicholas Hayward, Alexia Christian, Justus Howell, Oscar Grant, Joel Acevedo, Kendrec McDade, Jordan Baker, Ernesto Flores, Darrien Hunt, Sean Bell, Tamir Rice, Alyana Stanley-Jones, Eric Garner, Ezeil Ford, Rekia Boyd, Angelo Miller, Omar Abrego, Akai Gurley, Rohad McIntosh, Ruben Garcia Villapando, Yvette Smith, Anthony Baez, Amadou Diallo, Tony Robinson, Tarika Wilson and the list goes on and on.  And now add to that list Stephon Clark.  And so NYC Shut It Down: The Grand Central Crew #blacklivesmatter , Peoples Power AssembliesWhy Accountability , Workers World Party and Within our Lifetime United for Palestine had a Justice For #StephonClark march and rally last night where there seemed to be more police in attendance than protesters that went from Columbus Circle to Times Square, as far as I can see.  And their facebook event invite read like:

Stephon Clark was a 22 year old Black man and father of two. He was murdered by Sacramento Police officers on March 18, 2018, in his own backyard. They shot him over 20 times claiming they thought he had a gun. He had a cell phone in his hand.

Come out if you believe this must end! Come out if you believe Stephons life mattered. Come out if you believe Black Lives Matter.

And there were arrests at this protest as in those photos that find themselves posted above.  And I have blogged about the topic of gun violence and gun control on this blog before in times past.  And yet there seems to be no end in sight of people losing their lives to guns. If only guns could be banished from advertising, the military, the polizei and every human being on planet earth.  Is another world possible.   And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State.

JROTC

And recently with the topic of the latest mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and the Parkland school shooting that’s been in the news a lot lately, I have been coming across references that JROTC students were slain in Florida high school shooting.  And then the thought occurs to me, has anyone ever addressed the topic of JROTC being instituted in the USA nations schools, that the idea that one is trained to dress up in army outfits, stand in line and use guns as kids in schools across the nation may not be a good thing, that children are being recruited into this Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps army thing simply because it may be a class in school that one may be required to take. And as far as I know, this JROTC school army drills recruiting thing has existed in schools since the beginning of time and seemingly for generations to come. And I have blaghed about the topic of  gun control and gun violence on this blagh many times before in times past and I think what makes this school shooting different is that the student survivors of the Parkland school shooting decided to speak out against gun control and start a movement to end gun violence with National School Walkoutscalling out lawmakers in NRA styled ads and organizing March for our Lives events. And according to one of those photos that finds itself posted above, mass shootings have happened in malls, churches and concerts as well seemingly with no end in sight.  Is another world possible, Occupy the NRA.  And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State.

A Holy War Again

Dome-of-the-Rock (1)

And so I turned on the news today and there one of the many headline news of the day read, “Israel Attacks Targets in Syria After Iranian Drone Enters Israeli Airspace and Jet Crashes“, and as usual, world war III and all of those other religious fanaticism thoughts of Israel, Jerusalem, The Middle East, the holy land, holy war, that Dome of the Rock and the Temple Mount that seems to be written in bible prophecy somewhere start coming to mind, here on planet earth, enough to make me want to sign into this blagh again in another attempt to maintain web 2.0 social media user generated content for this blog and my other blagh whenever blaghers block possible. And so I thought to post another one of those The The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem posts again, as I seemed to have posted on this blog many times in times past. Is Israel becoming a nation?  The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. – George Orwell.

The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem VIII

“When the millennium that follows this millennium ends, Men will have finally opened their eyes.
They will no longer be imprisoned in their heads and cities,
But will be able to see from one end of the Earth to another, and understand each other.
They will know what makes one suffer hurts another.
Men will form one huge body of which each will be a tiny part.
Together they will form the heart of this body.
There will be a common language spoken by everybody, and thus, finally, a glorious humanity will come into existence…
Because Woman will arrive to reign supreme;
She will govern the future and decree Her philosophy to Man.
She will be The Mother of the Millennium that follows the millennium.
She will, after the days of the devil, radiate the gentle sweetness of a mother.
She will, after the days of barbarity, embody beauty.
The Millennium that follows the millennium,
Will metamorphose into an age age of lightness:
Men will love each other, sharing everything, dream,
And dreams will turn into Reality…
Thus Man will have his second birth.
Spirit will possess the mass of men,
Who will be united in brotherhood.
So an end will be proclaimed to barbarity.
It will be an era of a new strength of belief.
The dark days at the beginning of the Millennium that follows the millennium, will be ensued by days of jubilation:
Men will once more find the righteous path of humanity,
And Earth will find harmony once more…
There will be roads that connect one end of Earth, and the sky to the other;
The woods will once more be dense, the desert will once more be irrigated, and the water will once more be pure.
The Earth will be like a garden:
Men will take care of every living thing,
And he will clean everything he dirtied,
He will understand that the whole of Earth is his home,
And he will think with wisdom of the morrow.
Man will know everything on Earth and his own body.
Diseases will be cured before they are manifested,
And everybody will cure themselves and each other.
Man will have understood that he has to help himself to stay upright;
And after the days of reticence and avarice,
Man will open his heart and his purse to the poor;
He will define himself curator of human species,
And so, finally, a New Era will begin.
When Man has learnt to give and share,
The bitter days of solitude will be at an end.
He will once more believe in the Spirit,
And barbarians will once more be unheard of…
But all this will happen after the wars and the fires.
And this will arise from the ashes of the burnt Towers of Babel.
And a strong hand will be needed to bring order to chaos, and to put Man on the right path.
Man will learn that all creatures are bringers of light, and all creatures must be respected.
Man, in his lifetime, will live more than one life,
And will learn that the Light never goes out.”
