New year 2022 and old year 2021 on sandy beach with waves

New year 2022 and old year 2021 on sandy beach with waves

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”. – George Orwell, or someone else said that.   

It’s the end of that Gregorian calendar year as I type this blog post.  And I find myself typing another one of those end of the year 2021 and beginning of a new year 2022 blagh posts again.. And when the holy dayze are upon us I usually try to type something cheerful, blissful and upbeat. But not this year again, as that killer virus that still finds itself here on planet earth is entering year number three with no end in sight and we are still living in crazy times. 

And so in between attempting to vend those Black Lives Matter necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins at the Union Square Holiday Market and going to those New York Freedom Rally protests, which unfortunately seem to be end the evil ccp global tyranny endless, I found myself on I guess one of those day trips to The American Dream DreamWorks Indoor WaterPark in my travails as in some of those photos that find themselves posted above.

 
And so back to those New York Freedom Rallies that I have found myself posting on this blog every so often these days as a result of that plannedemic, 5g warfare weapon nanobot technology, social credit score systemNazi Germany, Agenda 21, Agenda 2030DNA changingSatan’s seed implanting and creating Satan’s race, rise of the antichrist, zombievaxmagnet challengemagnetic vaccinesgraphene and artificial intelligencetranshumanism, matrix, illuminati, great reset, new world order mark of the beast system straight from the book of Revelations virus that still finds itself here on planet earth these days. 
And then there are those London 2012 Olympics and Barcelona 1992 pure evil illuminati sponsored Olympics ceremonial openings ritual Bitchute videos that predicted this virus, amongst many other predictors who predicticted this virus of these times and how it would play out. End the evil CCP. And this made in China virus thing does not even include those world war three, battle of Armageddon and the rapture is imminemt articles titled Putin Warns NATO of Military Response as U.S. Seeks DialogueRussian Citizens Are Now Being Prepped for Nuclear War and Vladimir Putin warns NATO ‘everyone will be turned to radioactive ash’ over Ukraine moves that finds themselves in the headline news, and then there’s that La Palma burning mountain volcano, the hand of God that seems as if it wants to fall into the sea and wipe out the East Coast of America that has dissapeared from the news lately amongst many other horror stories here on planet earth these days and times. The seals are being opened and the trumpets are being sounded, right before our very eyes in this generation.
 
And so this is an attempt to I guess go back in time to revisit some of those events that have since passed since I last posted those New York Freedom Rally events on this blog. With some of the text to those photos and events in the New York City area of lately that find themselves posted above being as follows:
 
1. World Wide Rally For Freedom 6.0. January 22nd and 23rd. Save the date. #wewillallbethere
2. March to end the mandates. Monday 12/27, 3PM. City Hall to Borough Hall

9. Worldwide Walkouts (New York City). Kick – off November 3rd, 2021 – 1-3pm.  City Hall Park. Followed by march to Brooklyn Borough Hall. Stop the mandates. Stop the tyranny.

19. Sunday, December 5th. 2021. Rally For Medical Freedom. March to the Australian Consulate, New York City, in support of the Australian people.
 
And some other rambling thoughts to those photos that find themselves posted above being….
 
Someone said that the New York Police Department showed up with LRAD’s, those sound cannon things that disperse riots, during that Applebee’s sit – in at Queens Center Mall, 
 
Someone closed off the street to the Mayors house in brooklyn with trash cans, glow light sticks and an orange cone where protesters shut down traffic and blocked a garbage truck. #weoutside
 
Someone posted “Boycott The Cheesecake Factory” stickers all over the walls, lightpoles and street fruniture around The Queens Center Mall in Queens.
 
There was a Shake Shack and Panera Bread sit – in where protesters sat – in and where able to eat without having to show their vaccine papers and A vaccinated only Panera Bread at Union Square, NYC closed early during a sit – in
 
One of those elite illuminati satanic people seem to be phasing out humans with the vaccine and artificial intelligence with something called transhumanism.
 
And apparently COVID spelled backwards is DIVOC, the devil, To deceive, divorce. To be possessed with demons. The microchip mark of the beast. And the letters of omicron scrambled equals moronic.
 
And for some reason all of those bioweapon biowarfare virus variants seem to be named after 5G tech. ie; Delta, Omicron. #stop5g . 
 
And ditto… a few days later after I copied and pasted this text from my other blagh. Protesters against mandates were arrested at Burger King in Brooklyn for refusing to show their vaccine papers and were charged with tresspassing after marching over the Brooklyn Bridge during that March To End The Mandates, December 27th, 3PM, City Hall to Borough Hall. 
 
The Mayan calendar has ended and that 12.21.2012 year seems as if it was supposed to be 12.21.21, 8 years off.  And it is actually the day of Christ as I type part of this blog post here in America. I Will Not Comply. We Will Not Comply. The only thng constant is change and some stories do not end as you expect. Baby London, Babylon has fallen And what, if anything, does this have to do with a no police state. #wewillallbethere. Happy end of the Gregorian calendar year day.

Naked Cowboy wore a Black Lives Matter necklace! So much that I had to make a whole blagh post out of it just to say so. Seen while vending those Black Lives Matter necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins somewhere in between Union Square ParkTompkins Square Park and Washington Square Park, it was at Times Square, also known as The Crossroads of the World that The Naked Cowboy wore a Black Lives Matter necklaces, well sort of, for one quick second, while on his walk playing those Naked Cowboy songs on Broadway, or something like that. And even with those few dark photos above of those Disney characters and Naked Cowboy girls knockoffs who were passing by on this cloudy day, just yesterday,  I still wanted to sign in to this blagh just to blagh that The Naked Cowboy wore a Black Lives Matter necklace! Well, sort of, for one quick second.  Have a great New York City day and more, if  possible, during these crazy and historical times we are living in#blacklivesmatter .

“Join XR NYC THIS SEPTEMBER!  EXTINCTION REBELLION is a global nonviolent movement working to compel the world’s government to address the climate & ecological emergency.”
Those are part of the words on a SEPTEMBER 9/7 REBELLION flyer that I received this past weekend, when I attempted to vend those DecorForU Black Lives Matter, S#!t Just Got Real, Not My President, Occupy Wall Street, Yoga, No Police State, Museum of Reclaimed Urban SpaceWashington Square Park, Brooklyn and I Love New York necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each next to extinction rebellion‘s extinction rebellion NYC Rebel Fest Gathering event at Washington Square Park this past weekend.  And the description of their event invite reads like as follows:

REBEL FEST 
Sunday, August 30, 2020 1:00 PM 5:00 PM
Washington Square Park 5th Ave & Washington Square N
New York, NY, 10012 United States  

WE WANT TO LIVE… IN A MORE BEAUTIFUL WORLD. 

You are invited to Rebel Fest! Together, we will reclaim our power by openly and joyfully defying the current systems of oppression and creating the more beautiful world we want. 
Join us as we gather in community, have fun, make art, share food, and inspire each other!

Schedule of events: 1pm – Gather in the park near the fountain. Enjoy snacks, mingle, and make art 

2pm – Kickoff to the Rebellion. Get to know your fellow Rebels and hear more about the exciting new campaign demanding REAL democracy here in NYC! 

Please bring some light snack food to share, if you’d like and are able! 

Please wear a mask and observe proper physical distancing. We will have hand sanitizer and some PPE to share.


And extinction rebellion NYC seems to have extinction rebellion NYC events on what seems like a daily basis in the New York City area to save the environment and save the world.

You can also join their XR community for weekly virtual, playful, regenerative dance parties as well. Everyone’s welcome!

And I am not exactly sure what extinction rebellion is, though I have seen those extinction rebellion flyers around on light poles in the streets of New York City the past year or so, and I could only figure out that the extinction rebellion symbol had something to do with climate change and saving humanity from extinction, from disappearing off the face of the planet, though I think it is Albert Einstein who once said that if the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would have only four years left to live. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.

And there is also a How Green Is My City Exhibition Tour at Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space – MORUS, that radical history museum in New York City’s Lower East Side, September 25th 6pm.
This exhibition is led by the director of Green Maps. The exhibition is brought to you through a special partnership between the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) and the Green Map System, and also an Opening with Live Virtual Tour: How Green Is My City? September 6th.  In the basement level of MoRUS, explore a special temporary exhibit featuring photos, art, and barricades from the recent Black Lives Matter demonstrations. “Plywood Windows of SoHo: Black Lives Matter” is curated by James Hong with photographs by Hong and George Hirose. The partial Marsha P. Johnson mural is done by street artist Captain Eyeliner (instagram: @captain_eyeliner).

And some of those photos from this extinction rebellion REBEL FEST day at Washington Square Park, find themselves posted in those photos and videos above. Join the September 9/7 Rebellion. To all the good samaritans in New York City and beyond. Thank You. #climatechangeisreal #blacklivesmatter

Freeganism

And if I must blogger say, it was 23 degrees on this night in the middle of December during that holiday season that I found myself on one of those twice monthly Freegan trash tours, also known as dumpster diving, in that city of New York last night, that usually take place after their meetings, this one being at the Sony Public Atrium on 55th Street and Madisoin Avenue. And after thatfreegan meeting, this trash tour group of about ten or fifteen people made its way ten or fifteen blocks toward what seemed like about 70th street, stopping at what seemed like 10 different spots of various supermarkets, coffee shops, deli’s and any other kind of food stores along the way. And it was said that this was a slow night, as usually food is found at every spot, or every other spot, more than one can carry, and on this night food was only found at two or three of these ten spots, with most of the food being found at the last spot of what seemed like a gourmet natural health food store at the end of the night as in those photos that find themselves posted above. And there is also to be a freegan feast a day later after this dumpster dive of that freegan food that was found, to be shared at someones home with everyone. And from what I know, these trash tours usually take place during the hours of 9pm and 11pm, during that two hour window of when the food is put out on the sidewalk or dumpster and thrown away to when the food is picked up by the garbage trucks to throw it away. And so what exactly is freeganism and dumpster diving?  Well, it has something to do with capitalism, consumerism and saving the world.  And according that freegan.info website, What is a Freegan?:

Freegans are people who employ alternative strategies for living based on limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources. Freegans embrace community, generosity, social concern, freedom, cooperation, and sharing in opposition to a society based on materialism, moral apathy, competition, conformity, and greed. 

After years of trying to boycott products from unethical corporations responsible for human rights violations, environmental destruction, and animal abuse, many of us found that no matter what we bought we ended up supporting something deplorable. We came to realize that the problem isn’t just a few bad corporations but the entire system itself. 

Freeganism is a total boycott of an economic system where the profit motive has eclipsed ethical considerations and where massively complex systems of productions ensure that all the products we buy will have detrimental impacts most of which we may never even consider. Thus, instead of avoiding the purchase of products from one bad company only to support another, we avoid buying anything to the greatest degree we are able. 

The word freegan is compounded from “free” and “vegan”. Vegans are people who avoid products from animal sources or products tested on animals in an effort to avoid harming animals. Freegans take this a step further by recognizing that in a complex, industrial, mass-production economy driven by profit, abuses of humans, animals, and the earth abound at all levels of production (from acquisition to raw materials to production to transportation) and in just about every product we buy. Sweatshop labor, rainforest destruction, global warming, displacement of indigenous communities, air and water pollution, eradication of wildlife on farmland as “pests”, the violent overthrow of popularly elected governments to maintain puppet dictators compliant to big business interests, open-pit strip mining, oil drilling in environmentally sensitive areas, union busting, child slavery, and payoffs to repressive regimes are just some of the many impacts of the seemingly innocuous consumer products we consume every day.

Is another world possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

And it’s that time of year yet again where another one of those holidays rolls around to where I can just recycle this blog post and post about that same holiday all over again.  And in all honesty, I find myself blaghing on this day because it is Halloween on this day again, and I found myself taking a bunch of photos at that Theater for the New City Village Halloween Costume Ball yet again in that city of New York.  And then there’s that annual Village Halloween Parade to be found in New York City on this day also.  And that day of the dead, when the dead come to life, or something like that, started out with that guy all lit up in lights for this Halloween night atPort Authority Bus Terminal in New York City, as in those photos that find themselves posted above, and it continued with people all dressed up, and lit up in Christmas lights and all kind of lights on this night.  And the costumes are always amazing to see on this day.  If only every day were Halloween, then we would be free to be who we want to be, I think. Happy All Saints Day.

Okay, so as far as I know, Bernie Sanders isn’t really going to be at that May Day PUNK Show at Tompkins Square Park event May 1st. It’s just that with all this #Berniemania campaigning going on, and a bazillion and more Bernie Sanders rallies, concerts, subway rides, Victory Pow Wows, marches, parties, planning parties, brunches, canvassing, bus riding, actions, Bernstorming, presentations and more Berniemania events going on , and the debates and primaries just days away, I thought to put Bernie Sanders in the title of this blagh post just to catch your attention so that you can make it to that 1stTompkins Square Park concert of the year to be found in that neighborhood of the East Village to be found in that city of New York if you happen to be in the neighborhood. And Chris Flash and The Shadow had that  TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK (POLICE) RIOT 27TH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS in the park last year and a bunch of other riot reunion concerts at Tompkins Square Park before that.  Well what I kind of really meant was at leastDecorForU is planning to be there with Bernie jewelry and will be vending those Bernie SandersBlack Lives Matter, Occupy Wall StreetThe Shadow and Tompkins Square Park necklaces, key chains and magnets for one dollar each at this May Day event.  And in case you have been stuck in the stone age or hiding out under a rock or something, Bernie Sanders is running for president as part of those United States presidential elections 2016. And Bernie Sanders For President! And so back to that Tompkins Square Park Concert. And that Facebook event invite reads something like as follows:

May Day PUNK Show at Tompkins Square

Sunday May 1 at 2pm – 7pm in EDT

Tompkins Square Park
330 East 10th Street, New York, New York 10009

☆☆ FREE show ☆☆

And it seems that more performers and speakers will be added to that show as that May Day day nears. Squat The World. Housing is a Human Right.

Occupy Art Went To Figment NYC

figment6

 

And if I must blogger say, FIGMENT NYC was awesome. And that ferry boat ride that one takes across the water to get to Governors Island and all of its art, art and more art, well that was even more awesome to see New York City and all of its harbor views. And those one hundred and more art projects and art installations, performances and more that found themselves on Governors Island on this Figment NYC day, well they were even more awesome. And so this Figmentevent seems as if it wants photos, photos and more photos and colors, colors and more colors to be added to this post. And so Occupy Art Show was at Figment on this day and some of those photos from this Occupy Art Show find themselves posted above. And even more photos from that Occupy Art Show and FIGMENT NYC on this day find themselves posted in my Occupy Art Show @ Figment NYC Facebook event invite. And the Occupy Wall Street People’s Puppets were there on this day also. And if I would have known that, I would have Occupy Wall Street People’s Puppets went over there to see their show also. And so Figment NYC has come to an end this past weekend. And with that, that Occupy Art Show @ Figment NYC has came to an end as well. And so Figment is off to San Diego, Boston, Toronto, Washington D.C. and even more cities as well in all its Figmentness. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 997. And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast, well sort of. Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Art Worldwide.

Occupy Art Was @ Left Forum

Picture 706

Well that Occupy Art Panel at Left Forum at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in that city of New York that I blogged about a week or so ago happened a few days ago. And according to Left Forum, this was their best conference to date. And from what I saw during my time there, despite a panel speaker being missing in action who did not make it to that Occupy Art panel on this day, it was Paul DeRienzo of Let Them Talk who saved the day with his squatter history slide show for the few people who were in attendance. And that slide show was all things squatting and art. And if it wasn’t for Paul and his slide show, that “There will be a slide show presentation of Occupy artwork as well as Lower East Side, NYC Lower East Side Squat History zines” part of Occupy Art’s panel description would have just been false advertising and may not have happened. And so how did the rest of that Left Forum conference go on the last day of their three day conference one may ask, maybe? Well those photos above speak for themselves and a picture can tell a story, or something like that. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 990. Have a great Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Art day and more.

HOWL!

Image

And so I just happen to have one of those 1st Annual FEVA, Federation of East Village Artists, HOWL! Festival of East Village Arts The HOWL! Souvenir Books lying around that I must have gotten from Tompkins Square Park years ago, that park that finds itself somewhat infamous for that 1988 Tompkins Square Park Riot that had squatters, the homeless and everyone in between running to and/or from the police that had something to do with a curfew in that park that finds itself in the Lower East Side now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes maybe, in that city of New York.  And so this souvenir book is really cool with its East Village culture of life and history in that neighborhood during those times. And along with that Long Live The Lower East Side poem that finds itself in this book, here is another one of the many poems and photos that finds themselves in this book also that I thought interesting to post on this blog. Free the land. Squat the world.
