  • Theater Owners Chief Blames ‘No Time to Die’ Delay on Gov. Cuomo

    Variety ^ | October 4, 2020 | Brent Lang
    [snip] John Fithian, head of the National Association of Theatre Owners, believes that the main stumbling block preventing movie theaters from rebounding is Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s decision to keep cinemas closed indefinitely. That’s robbing studios of a major market to show their films, Fithian argues, which may jeopardize the release of upcoming blockbusters such as “Wonder Woman 1984” and Pixar’s “Soul.” In an interview with Variety, the theater business’s top lobbyist urged studios to keep releasing movies during the pandemic and warned that the industry faces financial ruin without government assistance. “No Time to Die” has delayed its release until...
  • Reds Exploiting Blacks: The Roots of Black Lives Matter

    accuracy in media (AIM) ^ | January 12, 2016 | James Simpson
    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...

    In a development that may portend extended disruptions, veteran street organizer Lisa Fithian, previously dubbed “Professor Occupy,” recently trained Ferguson protesters how to “simulate chaos.” Fithian is a legendary organizer who once announced she seeks to “create crisis, because crisis is that edge where change is possible.” She was one of the luminaries of the Occupy Wall Street movement and was a lead organizer in the infamous 1999 Seattle riots against the World Trade Organization that descended into violence. The 1999 WTO event in Seattle devolved into widespread rioting in which more than 40,000 protesters, some using violent tactics, descended...

    Yahoo News is reporting that far-left anarchist Lisa Fithian is training protestors in Michigan on "direct action techniques" in preparation for the upcoming right-to-work protests. Fithian, exposed in the film Occupy Unmasked, is the radical frequently employed by labor unions such as the United Auto Workers. With Fithian involved, look for fireworks in the coming days in the battle for Michigan to become a right-to-work state. According to Yahoo: More than 200 activists attended training Saturday in preparation for a protest at the Michigan Capitol, where lawmakers are putting the final touches on legislation that would allow workers to stop...

    Big Government ^ | 11/16/11 | Joel B. Pollak
    Lisa Fithian–the radical organizer whose role in Occupy was first exposed at Big Government–has apparently confirmed that ACORN-linked organizations are leading the Occupy movement’s next major protest action against banks nationwide. Fox News reported earlier today that remnants of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), the radical community organizing group that collapsed after its corruption was exposed by Big Government, are playing a “behind the scenes” role in organizing the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. The Fox News investigation followed Matthew Vadum’s report two weeks ago at Big Government that ACORN was paying people to attend the Occupy Wall...

    Big Government has already established that Lisa Fithian is playing an integral part in the planning, organization,and execution of the nation-wide “Occupy” protests and other union demonstrations and “direct actions.” The Chicago Teachers’ Union has reported that Fithian trained its members, together with the Teamsters, for the Occupy Chiacgo protests. Evidence on the UAW website also shows that Fithian recenlty led members in a march to “close” a branch of designated villain, Bank of America. Fithian is also referred to as an “SEIU Commander” leading activists in a recent march on bankers in Boston. Now, Big Government’s continued investigation of...

    Big Government has learned that anarchist groups, led by Lisa Fithian and working with Democrats and unions on the ground in Chicago, intend forcibly to disrupt the Mortgage Bankers’ Association meeting at the Hyatt Regency Chicago and other locations this afternoon. Violence is possible, as local police and security officers seem unprepared for a confrontation with thousands of activists converging on the Hyatt from multiple other staged demonstrations in Chicago. Fithian, a veteran anarchist organizer who is widely credited with shutting down the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle in 1999, has apparently arrived in Chicago after participating

    NY1 ^ | 9/18/11 | Nicole Ward
    Lisa Fithian said she's not part of any official group and that the “occupation” of Wall Street is the work of many people coming together with the same message. "Wall Street is certainly the heart of why we're here. It's the corporations — the big banks in this country have been destroying this country,” said Fithian. "Overfees or high mortgages, student loans, the banks are touching every aspect of our lives." She added that banks and the wealthy have taken money for their own interests and their own survival. “The people here are saying enough of that," said Fithian. Inspired...

    Of Rhymes and Reason My Two Cents on the Sheehan Spectacle By David J. Aland 29 August 2005 Martin Sheen visited Cindy Sheehan today. You know him – he’s not a President, but he plays one on TV. Al Sharpton visited Cindy Sheehan yesterday. You know him, too – he’s not a President either, but he keeps trying to run for the office. But what was significant about both visits is not that they are both pretenders to the Oval Office, but that the Sheehan Spectacle in Crawford, Texas, has reached the point of attracting celebrities. This clearly takes the...

    National Ledger ^ | August 30, 2005 | CK Rairden
    The media loves to portray Cindy Sheehan as just a mom, who lost her son at war, and is demanding answers from the president that is charge of the war. But Sheehan's vile statements about Israel, the U.S. and the president are a far cry from a grieving mother, they show her for the professional protester she has become. When you go to Sheehan's web site, the first thing you will be greeted with is a plea for cash. What you can do to help? Support Cindy by making a contribution: Your financial support is needed to make sure that...

    Have you heard of Lisa Fithian? A veteran of the Seattle WTO riots and scores of other protests, she’s been with Sheehan from the start. A notice on Cindy Sheehan's website,, asks for donors who might be able to offer a camper, or an RV, or just money, for Sheehan's upcoming cross-country tour, scheduled to begin Wednesday in Crawford, Texas, and end in Washington at the big antiwar demonstration scheduled for September 24. At the end of the note, readers with something to offer are asked to "please call organizer Lisa Fithian." To anyone familiar with the world of...
