Came across this thought-provoking article today. I have similar concerns about 'Occupy this and that' movement.

Don't get me wrong. I am glad people finally stand up against
the criminal global banking cartels, the Soviet/Nazi-style "European Union" and those of our elected representatives who are pimping us out to a variety of globalist interest groups. But serious questions need to be asked of those organizing those protests regarding aims and to where do we go from here..........


*Occupymymind

For the last few weeks all of my online mediums have been flooded with messages from the #occupy-whatever- movement. It started with #occupywallstreet but has since spread across the USA and into western Europe with #occupydamestreet in Dublin, #occupymanchester etc etc.

The whole movement has me banging my head off the wall in frustration. I have long espoused the need for a overturning of the current political and economical system. Every pillar of our modern societal structure is crumbling.

Religion came first and politics & finance are next. We are in urgent need of a structural change unlike anything we have ever seen before but the main questions are how to effect this change and more importantly what should be the goal of this change.Change can happen in a variety of ways and is not necessarily always good. Change should not be seen as a goal in itself.

In certain ways I admire those participating in the #occupy events around the globe. At least they are getting out of their comfort zone and out on the street making a stand for something they believe in. Eager to support this I have spent the last two weeks communicating with a number a number of people involved in these events to ascertain what their goals are and how they plan to achieve these.

So far none have been able to provide a clear answer. They were clear enough about what they opposed and who (according to them) the bad guys were but none could tell me what they wanted to achieve or more to the point how they planned to achieve this. It seemed very much a movement of "let's just get together and protest and we see where it takes us". This is not something I support.

My reply:
I do agree 100%! Well meaning people beyond doubt, but their 'more hand-outs from the government' culture prepares the ground for the establishment of an even bigger and more intrusive government machine, followed by loss of individual liberties and personal freedom. The whole 'Occupy movement' appears to have been hijacked by false prophets from the radical left.

it's no coincidence that the anti-war movement, the Occupy

*RIGHT GROUP,
**Most of the Occupy Wall Street protesters aren’t opposed to free market capitalism. In fact, what they want is an end to the crony capitalist system now in place, that makes it easier for the rich and powerful to get even more rich and powerful while making it increasingly hard for the rest of us to get by. The protesters are not anti-American radicals. They are the defenders of the American Dream, the decision from the birth of our nation that success should be determined by hard work not royal bloodlines.

....AND You can get a good sampling of what people are thinking about the 'OCCUPY' Protestors...in the 'SLIDE SHOW' LINK below from 'Bloomberg'. Well...check it out-Thanks/'S'

Love the image... seen variants before with messages such as 'yankee go home' referring to US desires to colonise Mars (that variant came from RB).

re: occupy; yes they want to be more organic / hierarchy free, but as already been said that leaves them wide open to nefarious manipulation. Leaders are needed, if only to act as spokespoeple, ensure a focused 'aim' and (attempt to) stifle the inevitable agent provacatuers who will infiltrate with the intent of making trouble so that the troops can be sent in to crush the movement.

I thought that the core aims were for absolute accountability... and the equitable sharing of resources instead of 1% getting 99% and 99% getting the few mouldy crumbs which fall off the edge of the heavily laden groaning table.

*'Sweeps' NOTE:
...Ann Coulter (OMG-if you don't know her look her up...I MEAN) has another 'TAKE' on the Occupy Wall Street folks. I like it...but what do you guys/gals think? Let us know/'S'

Occupy Wall Street (Hearts) Wall Street

by Ann Coulter

10/19/2011



The worst thing about Occupy Wall Street is that it's ruining a good cause: hating Wall Street. Just when opposing Wall Street was gaining momentum, these brain-dead zombies are forcing us to choose between thieving bankers and them.

If the Flea Party were really concerned about the greedy "Wall Street 1 Percent," shifting money around to make themselves richer and everyone else poorer, their No. 1 target should be
George Soros.

Of course, we don't know exactly how much money Soros has, since he keeps all his money in offshore bank accounts.

We do know that Soros has been convicted of insider trading. And we know that his general modus operandi is to run around the world panicking sovereign nations, so he can pocket the difference when their currencies collapse.

But the Occupy Wall Street protesters love Soros! It's Fox News they hate.

Last week, the great minds of the OWS movement, bored with playing bocce ball and getting stoned, decided to protest at the homes of Wall Street's robber barons. They then proceeded to walk right past George Soros' apartment building in order to protest at the homes of Rupert Murdoch and David Koch.

THEY'RE NOT WALL STREET!

You may not like Koch and Murdoch's products -- fertilizer and media -- but neither one has anything to do with Wall Street. Unlike money manipulators such as
John Corzine​ (Democrat), Robert Rubin (Democrat) and George Soros (Democrat and Obama's biggest supporter), Koch and Murdoch make money from corporations that actually produce something.

They take risks, make things and get menaced by the government. Wall Street schemers take no risks, produce nothing and get bailed out by the government.

Even assuming, for purposes of argument, that Koch and Murdoch are as evil as these morons seems to think, the protesters call their demonstration "Occupy Wall Street," not "Occupy Businesses Whose Products We Disapprove Of."

This would be like protesting the Holocaust by walking past Adolf Hitler's house and protesting at O.J. Simpson's house.

The Flea Partiers try to win good will by pretending to protest "Wall Street" -- but they ignore Wall Street's villains. They claim to speak for 99 percent of Americans, but their sponsor, George Soros, would be delighted if America collapsed and the 99 percent were impoverished. All he cares about is his own power and pocketbook.

Recall that when the markets first opened after 9/11 and little grandmothers in Iowa were patriotically calling their local savings banks to find out how to buy a share of stock so that the American stock market wouldn't crash because of the terrorist attack, Soros said: Sell, sell, sell!

Now he's helping the cretinous Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Liberals love mob movements because you can't get mobs to think, which is perfect for Democratic ideas.

Do the Wall Street protesters even know that Obama got more money from Wall Street than any other candidate, ever?

These pea-brained protesters either admire or have never heard of the most egregious of the Wall Street looters and their co-conspirators: Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelick, Jim Johnson, Rahm Emanuel, Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. Democrats all!

They have no idea that George Soros has a hand-in-glove relationship with the Democrats, having bought a whole slew of them, including Obama,
Al Gore​, Hillary Clinton, Charles Schumer, Joe Biden​, John Kerry, Patrick Leahy, John Corzine, Barbara Boxer, Mary Landrieu, as well as the Democratic National Committee.

Hamptons-vacationing, helicopter-flying,
Russell Simmons party-attending New York bankers always give about 80 percent of their political contributions to Democrats.
And the Democrats always return the favor.

In the 1990s,
President Bill Clinton repeatedly bailed out his friends at Goldman Sachs and Citibank under the tutelage of his Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin -- former chairman of Goldman Sachs. U.S. taxpayers were fleeced to prop up nations that were about to default on risky bonds purchased by Goldman and Citibank, such as Mexico (in 1995), Thailand, Indonesia and South Korea (in 1997), and Russia (in 1998).

Of course, if the bonds turned a profit, only Goldman and Citibank would benefit.

This is the Democrats' idea of "capitalism": Rich, Democratic-donating bankers get to engage in wild risk-taking; if the bets pay off, they keep all the winnings, but if the bets lose, they still keep the winnings, and the taxpayers get stuck with the bill.

Democrats are firm believers in the welfare state for their own constituents, whether that's a crack addict mother of five or a Wall Street banker.

Are the protesters aware that the Democrats' 2010 "financial reform" bill provides for future bailouts of reckless banks? Goldman Sachs and Citibank strongly supported the bill.

The protesters don't care -- they have no interest in actual malfeasance by actual Wall Street bankers. They're too busy denouncing Fox News. (Which did not, incidentally, receive a taxpayer-funded bailout.)

And these are the intellectuals of the Occupy Wall Street movement! Never mind the ones who just think stuff should be free and America is the moral equivalent of al-Qaida. They either know that they are benefiting Wall Street looters or are utterly brainless.

Given a choice between Wall Street looters and protesters defecating in the street, throwing rocks at police and chanting "F—k the USA," most people will choose Wall Street.

Hmm, she has a very good tongue (far better than mine, alas), she is legally trained so knows the ropes (and the lingo) and she has the looks to make TV bosses want her on their screens.

So, instead of bad-mouthing the protests she should get involved. She'd be a far better influence than those who follow the pc crowd and use attacking Wall Street simply because its pc to think of the bankers as Jewish and Zionists. (in other words, Jew-haters who are using the financial situation to further their own bigoted ideologies).

I agree with her when she talks about Soros being a greedy banker; in fact ALL Brits should because of the way Soros sold our country down the river in 1992, when the British £Pound crashed in value and 'lamentable' Lamont was Chancellor of the Exchequer and John Major was Prime Minister. (or was he really Jim Hacker, on loan from BBC TV's 'Yes Prime Minister'?)

Not being in the USA and never having watched them all I know about Fox News is best described as 'other people's opinions', and these suggest that it is OK to dislike them.

*’Sweeps’ NOTE:
…While many people involved in ‘OCCUPY’ protests are well meaning and trying to focus on economic issues and the hardships in community fashion, others are taking advantage for their own POLITICAL/self interest ends. We have to WEED these groups out. AND, we’ve been lucky identifying some of these anti-American/anti-people groups….as below. Thanks/’S’

*AND…Check out the video report below-ignoring the commercials of course...since they are illogical:

ACORN Officials Scramble, Firing Workers and Shredding Documents, After Exposed as Players Behind Occupy Wall Street Protests

Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York -- operating as New York Communities for Change -- have fired staff, shredded reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for leaking information in an effort to explain away a FoxNews.com report last week on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to sources.

NYCC also is installing surveillance cameras and recording devices at its Brooklyn offices, removing or packing away supplies bearing the name ACORN and handing out photos of Fox News staff with a stern warning not to talk to the media, the sources said.

*’Sweeps’ NOTE:
…Incidents increasing, and more ‘self-invested interest’ groups are joining the OCCUPY Protests and defiling what the ‘movement’ professes to stand for and against. Damned shame…that UNIONS, ‘MOVE ON Liberals’, Political Hacks, and Anarchists are ‘taking over’.

A rash of reports of sexual assaults at Occupy Wall Street protests across the country has both police and activists raising red flags.

Nearly a half-dozen assaults have been reported at Occupy camps, including three at the New York City protests, which have prompted protesters to set up a ‘women only’ tent in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park to provide a safe haven.

‘The concern would be the rapes and attacks that aren’t reported’, said Sgt. Ed Mullins…president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association…a police union in New York City. ‘We have no way of really knowing. If you have three or five crimes reported, you really don’t know if it’s eight or 10 that happened’.

He also noted how young many of the protesters are.
"They are in the lion’s den, so it’s not surprising that they are more susceptible to crimes,” he said.

The first reported incident occurred on Oct. 8, when a man was accused of sexually abusing a woman who was in a sleeping bag at Zuccotti Park. The victim did not report the incident until a few days later, when she saw the suspect, David Park, 27, at the protest site again.

Park, a Connecticut resident, had been arrested for disorderly conduct at a previous march, and he had numerous warrants out for him in both New York and his home state before the protests began.
Another incident was reported last week when a Brooklyn man, Tonye Iketubosin, 26, was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in her tent at Zuccotti Park on Oct. 25.

Iketubosin, a volunteer at the Occupy Wall Street “kitchen,” was questioned about the alleged rape of a second woman on Oct. 29.
Reports of sexual abuse also surfaced in Dallas, where a 23-year-old man was accused of having sex with a 14-year-old runaway girl, and in Cleveland, where cops opened an investigation of a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on Oct. 15.

Organizers for Occupy Wall Street did not return messages seeking comment, but they released a lengthy statement addressed to the participants.

‘As individuals and as a community, we have the responsibility and the opportunity to create an alternative to this culture of violence,” the statement reads. “We are working for an OWS and a world in which survivors are respected and supported unconditionally… We are redoubling our efforts to raise awareness about sexual violence. This includes taking preventative measures such as encouraging healthy relationship dynamics and consent practices that can help to limit harm’.

The incidents of sex crimes, reports of petty theft, assaults and general outbursts of violence have sprung up not only around Wall Street, but in Occupy camps across the country.

And many of the protesters have become more aggressive overall in recent days.

The most serious incident was reported in downtown Portland last night -- cops responded to calls of a Molotov cocktail being set off near the city's World Trade Center. Authorities had received unconfirmed information a week earlier that people within the Occupy Portland encampment were constructing the crudely made bomb, which is normally fashioned from a glass bottle filled with gas and a soaked rag or cloth sticking out of the opening as a wick.

At the site of the Occupy San Diego camp, street cart vendors were forced to close up shop Monday when protesters, angry that they stopped receiving free food, ransacked and vandalized the carts.

The angry mob not only scrawled graffiti on the carts, they reportedly splattered them with blood and urine as well.
In addition, the vendors received death threats, according to local radio station KNX 1070.

Last weekend, a man was walking through Zuccotti Park taking pictures of the Occupiers' camp when an unidentified man approached him and struck him in the face, leaving his victim with a laceration to the face, according to law enforcement reports.

Also in lower Manhattan, a business owner made claims that she has been terrorized and her well-being threatened by Occupiers after she prohibited them from using her store's restroom to bathe.

Stacey Tzortzatos, owner of Panini and Co., located across from Zuccotti Park, got fed up two weeks ago when demonstrators broke a bathroom sink causing flooding in the shop and leaving her with a bill of $3,000 in damages, according to the New York Post.

In Boston, homeless protesters were removed from Dewey Square after they were discovered to have knives and stashes of illegal drugs.

'Paralysis is occurring across law enforcement. It’s becoming a Catch 22,” Mullins said. Referring to the protests in New York, he said, “To go in there to clear the park is going to cause confrontation. To not do so is detrimental'.

Police Move In on 'Occupy Portland' Campsite as Protesters Remain, AND…In Oakland-California more violence.


Attached File  OCCUPY GROUP-PHOTO.jpg   56.73KB   1 downloads


IN PORTLAND, Oregon U.S.A. – Several hundred protesters, some wearing goggles and gas masks, marched past authorities in a downtown street Sunday, hours after riot police forced Occupy Portland demonstrators out of a pair of weeks-old encampments in nearby parks.

Police moved in shortly before noon and drove protesters into the street after dozens remained in the camp in defiance city officials. Mayor Sam Adams had ordered that the camp shut down Saturday at midnight, citing unhealthy conditions and the encampment's attraction of drug users and thieves.

More than 50 protesters were arrested in the police action, but officers did not use tear gas, rubber bullets or other so-called non-lethal weapons, police said.
After the police raid, the number of demonstrators swelled throughout the afternoon. By early evening, dozens of officers brandishing nightsticks stood shoulder-to-shoulder to hold the protesters back. Authorities retreated and protesters broke the standoff by marching through the streets.

Demonstrators regrouped several blocks away, where they broke into small groups to discuss their future. Some advocated occupying foreclosed homes, others wanted to move onto the Portland State University campus or to the shores of the Willamette River.

In the hours after the midnight eviction deadline, the anti-Wall Street protesters and their supporters had flooded the park area even as authorities in other cities across the nation stepped up pressure against demonstrators, arresting dozens of people.

At one point overnight, the Portland crowd swelled to thousands. As dawn arrived, riot police had retreated and most of the crowds had gone home, but protesters who have been at the two parks since Oct. 6 were still there, prompting one organizer to declare the night a victory for the movement.

‘We stood up to state power’, Jim Oliver told The Associated Press.
It didn't last. Police moved in later as demonstrators held a midday "general assembly" meeting to discuss their next moves. An officer on a loudspeaker warned that anyone who resisted risked arrest and ‘may also be subject to chemical agents and impact weapons’. Demonstrators chanted ‘we are a peaceful protest’.

‘We were talking about what we were going to do and then they just started hitting people. Seems like a waste of resources to me’, protester Mike Swain, 27, told the AP.
One man was taken away on a stretcher; he was alert and talking to paramedics, and raised a peace sign to fellow protesters, who responded with cheers.

Choya Adkison, 30, said police moved in after giving demonstrators a false sense of calm. They thought they had time to rest, relax and regroup, she said.
Police Chief Mike Reese told KGW-TV it had been his plan to take the parks in a peaceful manner and that's what happened. "Our officers have performed exceptionally well," he said.

Even ahead of the police raid, the camp was a shadow of what it had been before Saturday. A large segment of campers were homeless people drawn to the free food and shelter offered by Occupy Portland. They are gone, after outreach workers went through the camp to help them find shelter elsewhere.
And as the Saturday midnight eviction deadline neared, protesters themselves began dismantling tents.

Around 4 a.m., dozens of police formed a line across from demonstrators who had poured into the street. Protesters facing them appeared to be in festive spirits with some banging on drums and plastic pails, another clanging a cowbell while others danced in the streets as a man juggled nearby.
On Sunday at an impromptu news conference, the mayor defended his order to clear the park, saying it is his job to enforce the law and keep the peace. "This is not a game," Adams said.

Officials said that one officer suffered minor injuries when he was hit by some kind of projectile in the leg. Police had prepared for a possible clash, warning that dozens of anarchists may be planning a confrontation with authorities. Officers seized pieces of cement blocks Friday, saying they were told some demonstrators had plans to use them as weapons against police. They said they believe some demonstrators were building shields and trying to collect gas masks.

And police seized incendiary devices, gas masks and marijuana on Sunday after stopping three men for speeding on Interstate 5 south of Portland. The men told police they had left Occupy Portland an hour earlier and were carrying the equipment in anticipation of a confrontation with authorities, the Marion County Sheriff's Office said.

Meanwhile in Oakland, California, friends confirmed Sunday that Scott Olsen, the Iraq War veteran who suffered a serious head injury during a police raid on the Occupy Oakland encampment, has been released from the hospital. Olsen suffered a skull fracture during tear-gas filled clashes between police and demonstrators on Oct. 25.

Occupy Wall Street supporters nationwide have rallied around Olsen's plight.
Also on Sunday, for the third time in three days, Oakland city officials warned protesters that they do not have the right to camp in the plaza in front of City Hall and face immediate arrest. Police did not respond to requests for comment on whether officers were preparing to forcibly clear the camp.

The eviction notices come as officials across the country urged an end to similar gatherings in the wake of three deaths in different cities, including two by gunfire. Demands for Oakland protesters to pack up increased after a man was shot and killed Thursday near the encampment site.

Police Sunday night identified the slain man as 25-year-old Kayode Ola Foster of Oakland, saying his family confirmed he had been staying at the plaza.
Police officer Johnna Watson said witnesses have told police that one of two suspects in the shooting had also been a frequent resident at the plaza. The suspects are being sought and their names haven't been released.
Investigators suspect that the shooting resulted from a fight between two groups of men.

I heard that court action is imminent against the London occupy people camping out next to St Paul's Cathedral.

It could be that they are about to be given their marching orders, despite there originally being an agreement of some sorts allowing them to stay until the new year.

*;Sweeps' NOTE:
....NO DOUBT, the 'Occupy' NYC/WALL STREET and other Occupy groups round the U.S.A. And the world are becoming 'disruptive', offensive, and brutal. What could have been a 'Counter Culture Revolution' has now been infiltrated-if not orriginally designed by 'Soros' TYPES-by offensive, intimidating, and socialist leaning people and their organizations. The Occupiers mind set has now been opened and visible to the public at large...and they don't like what they see.

NYC Workers & Business men...came out themselves yesterday to confront the disruptive nature of the OCCUPIERS, their garbage, drugs, VIOLENCE, laziness, and plain offesniveness to common people trying to get to work, do business, get their kids to school, and get to and from jobs in the City.

Check out the VIDEO below and see what you make of it all. Ignore the opening commercial please/'S'

...BUT, on the other hand folks 'There is another face to this movement'. There are sincere people, not of the 'specialized Interest/Political/or Ill Socialists...but genuine people CONCERNED with the State of 'Freedom' and the Effects of us having lost so many of our rights AND Constitutional guarentees in the last few years alone...along with the rife corruption/'S'

Apparently Occupy London held a street party today, in Piccadily Circus.
