Whose Rally Is It?

That’s It, I’m Done with Rallies

“The freedom of assembly and association are not cultural, or specific to a particular place and time. They are born from our common human heritage. It is human nature—and human necessity—that people come together to collectively pursue their interest.”

By the On-the-Ground Correspondent

The First Amendment in the Constitution is first for a reason. It not only guarantees our right to freedom of speech but also freedom of religion and the freedom to assemble. These rights—the ability to express your thoughts, to practice a faith of your own choosing, and to come together with like-minded people to either stand for or against issues—are a foundation to all human rights.

Taking the idea of freedom of assembly further, there’s something about a collective number of like-minded people coming together to voice an opinion at a specific time and place that has an energetic force to it. Ideally, if a large group of people stands in front of City Hall or Parliament protesting an issue, then politicians elected by the people should pay attention, since it is their job to represent the will of the people.

The Boston Tea Party always comes to mind. That was a protest that triggered a revolution and birthed a new nation. In an ideal world, that’s the way it should be, but sadly, we no longer live in an ideal world. Though the American heritage is steeped with the ideals of freedom, in these Covid/Going Direct Reset times, our ideals are being obfuscated by fear, lockdown restrictions, cancel culture, and divide-and-conquer politics, among many other things. Yet even when freedom is denied to a class of people, that principle is still there for them to claim.

Here we are, post election, post Trump, post Jan. 6th. It seems like every time a group tries to stand up against globalist policies, something crazy happens. Last week was the Worldwide Freedom Rally. While other cities drew large crowds, in New York City, it was a small gathering of 200 people at Union Square Park, with prestigious speakers like Mary Holland from Children’s Health Defense and Vera Sharav; Dolores Cahill was also going to give a speech via telephone, speaking out against vaccines and lockdowns. The rally started with such a positive momentum. People showed up mask-less, everyone was extremely polite, and just happy to not feel alone in their beliefs. At least that’s how I felt. An hour into the rally, it was all going great. The speeches were important and informative.

Then, out of nowhere, an ominous black helicopter flew pretty low over Union Square Park, and I just knew trouble was coming. Next came the Trump flags and MAGA hats in the crowd, and I thought, “What does this have to do with Trump? This is not a Trump rally. Trump was the one who allowed the emergency authorization of the Covid vaccines. Why are these people here?” Within 40-60 minutes, the whole thing snowballed. A large-busted topless woman dressed up like Uncle Sam, along with a barely dressed black girl covered in whiteface and body paint, popped out behind the speaker’s podium. More Trump people showed up, and a BLM group also showed up. The police presence increased out of nowhere. The BLM and Trump people started having a face-off, while a crazy older woman in a Biden shirt started jumping through the crowd. The police came in to break up the “Trump people” vs. the “BLM people,” looking annoyed. Forty minutes later, a large mass of people passed the park, marching on 14th Street and chanting “Stop Asian Hate.” It was as if a director were behind the scenes calling “action” and cuing in each group. Just nuts.

After my experience being in DC on Jan. 6th, I’ve learned to just hang back and watch the mess unfold. But at one point I screamed out to the black girl in whiteface and body paint, “How much are they paying you?” She replied, “NOT ENOUGH!” As a “Trump supporter” was ranting that the Chinese are trying to have a revolution in the U.S., the black girl in whiteface and the crazy Biden shirt lady were standing side by side facing off with the police, and the mass “Stop Asian Hate” march was happening—all at the same time. Clearly, these people were paid to cause this buffoonery…. And to manufacture incoherence.

The organizer of the rally just stood there with her bullhorn dangling from her hand, dumbfounded. I looked at her, and she looked back at me, asking, “What just happened?” So, what did happen? If these people were paid actors or agents provocateurs, who’s doing the paying? It wasn’t the size of the Jan. 6th “insurrection,” but it must have had a healthy budget. Let’s say the Jan. 6th “insurrection debacle” budget might have been $10-$25 million. This little fiasco, including the cost of the black helicopter, probably was $30-$40K…? The actors probably got a day rate payment of $200 bucks. Like the black girl in whiteface said, it’s not enough. Where’s the money coming from? Let’s connect the dots here; who has profited the most from these lockdowns? Who has gained from the vaccine rollouts? Why are governments and our elected officials not only allowing everything to happen but participating in all these events? Which signals to me another question; do governments work not for us but for someone else? And, who’s the “someone else”?

That’s the question we all need to start asking ourselves. Is our government working for us or someone else? Once we all can face that question and honestly accept the answer, we can act accordingly. I hate to say this, but America is no longer a republic by the people and for the people. The same goes for the democracies of Europe. Followers of Solari know that sovereign nations are being undermined by central banks. As Klaus Schwab puts it, “you’ll own nothing and be happy.” Are you ready to own nothing and be happy, including your own bodily sovereignty?

So, now that we have more facts, do rallies even work? As Catherine has said many times, if your money is in a large bank and you have a large-bank credit card in your pocket, you are financing your own servitude. I am no position to give financial advice, but I am in a position to ask questions. As the “Going Direct Reset” is rapidly bopping us on the head, are we willing to pay for our own enslavement? If you’re not willing to finance it, then the next question you should be asking is, “What do I do to stop contributing to it?” Do rallies matter when elected officials no longer represent the will of the people? Thinking more on the Boston Tea Party, that was a revolt against the British tax on tea to the colonies. So, maybe the new Boston Tea Party should be a revolt against the taxing and inflation of our money? Where and how we use our money matters. If we want out of this Great Reset/Slave System, maybe it’s time to start thinking more about how our money works versus going to rallies. Just something to think about.

Like I said, I’m done with rallies.

South Dakota Depriving Right of Peaceful Protest

Civil liberties organizations and activists are pushing back against new laws which criminalize protests and free speech related to pipeline projects.

In late March, a coalition of Native activists, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the ACLU of South Dakota filed suit against the State of South Dakota in an effort to repeal recently passed state laws aimed at curbing “rioters” during the upcoming construction of the TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline. South Dakota Senate Bill 189 and SB 190 have created controversy due to the potential to prevent peaceful and legal protest of environmental projects.

Senate Bill 189, also known as the Riot Boosting Act, grants the state the authority to sue any individual or organization for what they call “riot-boosting,” or encouraging and/or participating in acts of force or violence. SB 190 sets up funding to pay for state, county, and local police to combat potential pipeline protesters. This means that any individual who is attending a protest or rally against the Keystone Pipeline (or other future pipeline) could become subject to civil or criminal penalties, whether they engage in violence or not. The plaintiffs in the suit argue that the language of the bill is vague and does not clearly define what type of conduct or speech is considered “riot-boosting” or encouraging a riot.

The Washington Times reports that South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has stated that the legislation will help shut down protests of the Keystone XL Pipeline and prevent a battle between protesters and police as was seen during the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota in 2016. The Times notes that Noem believes protesters were funded by “out-of-state liberal donors, such as George Soros.” South Dakota State Sen. John Wiik said the introduction of the new laws “stems from what happened up at Cannonball, North Dakota.”

Plaintiffs on the lawsuit include the NDN Collective, the Indigenous Environmental Network, the Sierra Club, Dakota Rural Action, Dallas Goldtooth of the Indigenous Environmental Network, and Nick Tilsen, President and CEO of the NDN Collective.

Gov. Kristi Noem’s legislation is yet another way to promote Big Oil interests and prevent dissent by making protesters subject to legal action,” says Kim Pate, Vice President of NDN Collective.

The NDN Collective recently wrote that the broad language in SB 189 means that “anyone that contributes to a protest, whether through monetary donations, donations of supplies, or even through organizing a page on social media, can be held liable, and have civil and criminal penalties for supporting a protest that the state deems ‘violent‘.” Further, the law states that individuals or organizations can be held liable even if they are not on the ground in South Dakota. The NDN Collective also states that the law would allow TransCanada to redirect money seized from protesters and organization towards pipeline construction.

The ACLU of South Dakota has also condemned the new laws, stating, “We’re prepared to stand on the front lines and defend your right to peacefully protest and express your opinions freely.”
