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.
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.
And being that I have found myself blogging about events, events and more events on this blog lately, I guess I’ll post yet another event on this blog that I found myself attempting to vend those DecorForU #blacklivesmatter, #notmypresident, #occupywallstreet, #berniesanders, #nopolicestate, #yoga, #brooklyn, #bushwick & #iloveny necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins at for $2 each this past weekend and attempting to post this blagh post solely for the purpose of posting those photos and video from that event that find themselves posted above. And that event was a Vegan Food Fest Fundraiser Party! that Stacie Vegan-Peirce helped put together at Mayday Space, this really cool all things revolution and beyond space in Bushwick, Brooklyn to be found in that state of New York. And if I must blogger say, there was plant based food, food and more food to be found at this event that I found myself sharing a table with Qusic – Wildlife Music and his dj music at. And what more can I say about this all things vegan and beyond event that this Vegan Food Fest Fundraiser Party! facebook event invite does not already say. And that Vegan Food Fest Fundraiser Party! facebook event invite reads like:
Have you wondered why so many sports stars and celebrities are making the shift to plant-based nutrition?

#animallivesmatter Have a great all things vegan and beyond day.
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:
Sunday April 29, 2pm -7pm
Tompkins Square Park
500 East 9th Street, New York, New York 10014
Celebrate the first big show of the new year in the park.
w/ HARAM. RUBBER, OLOR A MUERTE, HEADSPLITTERS & JUNTA.
– Speakers TBA.
“ANARCHIST INVASION with PUNK BANDS + FOOD NOT BOMBS IN TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK FOR MAYDAY!! This Sunday (April 29), from 1:00pm on. BE there!! [See SHOWS IN TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK for more]”
And there seemed to be an anarchist picnic going also in that park on this may day event day as well.
And what else is there that I can say about these Tompkins Square Park concerts that has not already been said in Tompkins Square Park concerts time except that every picture tells a story as in those photos and video that finds themselves posted above. Have a great music, music and more music day.
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 Walkouts, calling 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.
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.”
And on this day finds itself as that holy day of Christmas here on planet earth, or Jesus Christ’s day of birth. And another Gregorian calendar year has come to pass along with those holiday events, holiday markets , holiday displays and all things holiday season with New Years Eve and New Years Day 2018 not far behind. And climate change is still real. And so I find myself blogging about whatever comes to mind in another attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blagh whenever bloggers block possible. And so for some reason or another I usually find myself blogging about events, events and more events on this blog. As this post happens to be about events, events and more events as in those seemingly a bazillion holiday events and more events that take place during that holiday season in the New York City area and beyond. And one of the many New Years Eve events taking place in that New York City area event that comes to mind is #squat, squat the world, housing is a human right and all things squatter and beyond in that Lower East Side or East Village for real estate marketing purposes maybe, neighborhood of New York City is a Future Positive New Year’s Eve Party that seems to be all things squatter and beyond. And then there is also 10 Alternative NYC New Year’s Eve Events to Ring in 2018. And so that Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space – MORUS Future Positive New Year’s Eve Party Facebook event invite reads something like:
This Future Positive New Year’s celebration is brought to you by two amazing all volunteer non-profit groups that have been partnering for five years and we are celebrating together. The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space is celebrating its 5th anniversary. Time’s Up environmental organization, which has made so many sustainable positive changes in NYC, is celebrating its 30th year.
