    Facebook officials said they will not punish any employees who choose to take off work May 1 to protest President Donald Trump. Pro-immigration groups, socialist organizations, labor unions, and hundreds of thousands of workers are planning to walk out on their jobs on International Workers Day. “At Facebook, we’re committed to fostering an inclusive workplace where employees feel comfortable expressing their opinions and speaking up,” a representative told Bloomberg. “We support our people in recognizing International Workers’ Day and other efforts to raise awareness for safe and equitable employment conditions.” Facebook told staff about its policy April 14, specifically clarifying...
  • Ex-CIA Operative Robert Steele Wants To Warn President Trump Of What Is Coming On May 1, 2017

    02/19/2017 6:07:11 PM PST · by davikkm · 139 replies
    Ex-CIA Operative and writer Robert Steele has written a memo to President Trump warning him of what he needs to prepare for. He says a “violent American spring” is being planned for May 1, 2017. He says there will be 10s of millions of paid agitators, who will cause massive chaos in the streets of America. By the way Robert Steele is highly respected and vetted. It is surprising who Steele is warning Trump against in this video. He says that Dick Cheney is trying to overthrow President Trump. Of course, we knew that there are many trying to overthrow...

    Feb 18, 2017- A second consecutive day of protests against U.S. President Donald Trump's month-old administration appeared to lose momentum on Friday, with rallies in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York attracting small yet enthusiastic crowds. Activists had called for a "general strike" a day after thousands of immigrants across the United States stayed home from work and school during "A Day Without Immigrants" to highlight the contributions of foreign-born workers to the American economy. Strike4Democracy, one of the groups organising Friday's strike, said more than 100 public protests were expected around the country. In New York, more than 16,000...

    As you can see by the photo above, our critics-in this case, the feral, reflexively violent antifa thugs who met us at Foley Square-were not eager to be photographed. Whether that was out of concern for being identified by NYPD officers the next time they attempt to assault a peaceful assembly of dissident voices, or out of respect for the hundreds of visitors who would be forced to look at their faces in the following days is something I’ll let you decide...

    The State Department painted it as an elegant way out of a ballooning crisis involving Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng — but by day’s end, it looked like a disgraceful performance by US diplomats. Initial reports had Chen so pleased by the deal that he told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “I want to kiss you.” The agreement Clinton negotiated with Beijing yesterday supposedly allowed Cheng to stay in China and get medical attention, with the authorities guaranteeing his future safety. But things started unraveling just hours after the compromise was inked. First, while State claims Chen never wanted to leave...

    Although the ferocity of the Never Trump protests has diminished-in tandem with the Great Red Hope’s impending demise-that doesn’t mean the regressive left has quietly retired from the public sphere. A slightly more sedate Communist rally was held last Sunday within Union Square to commemorate what I like to call fascist Christmas. As usual, Pamela Hall documented the annual parade of economic and historical illiteracy for The Silent Majority No More.Read it and weep-for the future.

    American Rattlesnake ^ | May 4, 2016 | Gerard Perry
    Although once known as a day of euphoric celebration in pre-Christian pagan cultures, May Day commemorations are now reserved almost exclusively for Marxist outpourings of grievance and violent riots by entrenched labor unions and disgruntled trustafarians. While I would prefer the day be dedicated to the over hundred million victims of Communism, that seems like a forlorn hope in today’s political climate. That said, our good friends Pamela Hall and Joanna Marzullo were able to capture some of the absurdity of the May Day Morlocks-at least, those brave enough to withstand the rain-for us all. You can see some of...

    May 1 is known by some as May Day. A communist, anti-God celebration of the death of freedom and the rise of the tyranny of socialism. On May 1, 2016, however, the day also served as Holocaust Remembrance Day. Cities across the country participated in the March of Remembrance to honor the dead, and the living, on Holocaust Memorial Day. I participated in the City of Murrieta, California. After the event was over, the only word that comes to mind to describe what I experienced is “powerful.” After the ceremony, after the march around the Murrieta Town Square park area,...

    OK, I was watching local CBS news so I could watch 60 Minutes when it came on. Instead they have on wall to wall, live Camera coverage of May day protests. Now I might not have to say it, but at what point is the media actually responsible for the news? I mean if you put a camera on the street and tell folks they are going to be on the news, what kind of toadstools do you expect to show up? This whole thing is quite a bit over the top. And God forbid, they should be armed with...

    The daughter of America’s most famous evangelist, Billy Graham, says God is “clearly warning that His judgment is coming on America, and it’s going to be ugly.” So, Ann Graham Lotz is calling on Americans to participate in a “Mayday” time of prayer and intercession May 15-23. She hopes to “delay or soften God’s judgment that is coming on America and our world” and urge the Holy Spirit to “compel the church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God.” Lotz’s warnings are startlingly specific. In a recent message on her website, she...
  • Damage By Oakland May Day Protesters ‘Worst Seen In Years’

    OAKLAND (KCBS) — Glass from shattered windows, graffiti, and debris littered the streets Saturday in the aftermath of Friday’s May Day demonstration in Oakland. As the cleanup effort got underway, the damage was described as the worst seen in years. Late Friday night, violent protesters broke windows at businesses and damaged dozens of vehicles along Broadway’s Auto Row. They even set cars on fire. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff said it was a very small band within the group of 300 or so demonstrators, who were responsible for the damage. “They came with rocks in their pockets and malice in their...

    Portland police used tear gas, flash bangs and what they called "noise distractionary devices" to try and disperse protesters in downtown Portland Friday evening. At least one officer was injured during the clashes. No arrests were made. The group Don't Shoot Portland, protesting excessive force by law enforcement, marched through downtown Portland Friday afternoon and joined an unrelated May Day rally for immigrant rights. Hundreds of marchers began winding their way through downtown Portland at 4:30 p.m., but some protesters disregarded the planned route and walked against traffic. TriMet buses and MAX trains were delayed.Streets in downtown Portland were blocked...

    Socialism is also the drive behind the rotting of America, the upheaval in politics, the killing of liberty, and the riots we've been experiencing, be it Ferguson, or Baltimore May Day is historically a day for the workers of the world to unite, and march. In other words, a call for socialism. In the 2016 campaign picture, Bernie Sanders,a self-proclaimed socialist, has decided torun as a Democrat for the presidency. As Newsweek said when Obama took office, “We are all socialists now.” Socialism is also the drive behind the rotting of America, the upheaval in politics, the killing of liberty,...

    Today is May Day. Since 2007, I have defended the idea of using this date as an international Victims of Communism Day. I outlined the rationale for this proposal (which is not my original idea) in my very first post on the subject: May Day began as a holiday for socialists and labor union activists, not just communists. But over time, the date was taken over by the Soviet Union and other communist regimes and used as a propaganda tool to prop up their regimes. I suggest that we instead use it as a day to commemorate those regimes’ millions...

    Today, March 1, 2015, is May Day, which is also known as International Workers’ Day. May Day’s origins date back to May 1, 1886. It was on this day that 200,000 U.S. workers protested across the country. Their goal was an eight-hour workday and some of the protests turned violent. This became known as the Haymarket affair and it was declared a holiday by the International Socialist Conference three years later, reports Time. The holiday spread to the rest of the world, while never quite picking up steam in America. Instead, we have Labor Day, which takes place in September. This is likely due...

    May DayDate When Celebrated: Always May 1st May Day, the first of May is celebrated around the world. It has a number of meanings. In many other countries it is a celebration of spring and the coming of summer. It is celebrated with many spring flowers, many of them blooming right in your own backyard. To communist and socialist countries, it is a celebration for the workers. In many countries it is celebrated as part of a one to three day holiday. Of particular note, it is not a national holiday in the United States, except in Hawaii where...
