Occupy Leaders Apparently Involved in (Cleveland Oh)Bridge Bomb Plot, Suspects Named
Breitbart ^ | 1 May 12 | Dan Riehl

Posted on 05/01/2012 10:38:56 AM PDT by xzins

One of the leaders of the Occupy Cleveland movement, Brandon Baxter, is one of those arrested for today's terrorist plot to bomb a bridge in Cleveland. Occupier Brandon Baxter appears to have gotten the guidance he sought. OCCUPIED — Occupy Cleveland organizer Brandon Baxter gets some shade in the Occupy Cleveland tent in downtown Cleveland on March 21, 2012. Baxter, one of the few remaining members of Occupy Cleveland’s physical presence downtown, said the group has seen a sharp decline in numbers since last October because of increasing disorganization. “We need guidance,” he said.

Another of today's suspects is Anthony Hayne, named previously in a report on Occupy Cleveland.

“I just want to be very clear: we are not occupying Lakewood,” said Anthony Hayne, who is organizing the information session. Hayne, a Lakewood resident since 2001, said there will be about six or seven members of Occupy Cleveland, which stems from the Occupy Wall Street movement, at the table Saturday.

“We need guidance,” [Baxter] said.

What you and your Occupy buddies need, Baxter, is a good sound public flogging.

Under the Soetero regime we get the Occupy movement, also known as domestic terrorists.

Brandon, I predict you're going to get all of the guidance you can handle for the next 15 or 20 years.

Many folks sentenced to life say they would have preferred being sentenced to death. In the case of these OWSers the cruelest form of punishment would be to sentence them to work for a long stretch of time Chaining them to a broom at a McDonald’s for the next five years might dampen their incendiary tendencies.

Please check your freepmail.

This article proves an Occupy connection and is focused on that. The CBS article announces a bridge plot. 2 different bits of breaking news.

This should be in breaking news.

A little trip down memory lane to remind everyone of Obama’s ideological connection to OWS:

Send them to Gitmo and pass a law recognizing OWS as a Domestic Terrorist Group.

That’s what Pelosi would call for it the hooligans were at Tea Party rallies.

No, that was some "high ranking State Dept, official who...". But, BUT Obama personnaly killed Bin Laden. He even designed and built the helicopters, rifles, and radios that the military used. In fact he used those radios to control the actions of the SEALs so that they would act stupidly upon encountering a minority. Or something.

Another entitlement (guidance) for which they’re looking. As if demanding college tuition, loan forgiveness and free lodging from Uncle Sam and the US taxpayers wasn’t enough.

From the police report, it appears that had a very clever escape plan...

WRIGHT said that they just need to bring down the Brecksville Northfield High Level Bridge - and that as long as stuff "gets f--ked up" he'll be happy with the action.

'On April 20, 2012, the CHS drove WRIGHT and C.S. to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park directly below the High Level Bridge to do surveillance...

Upon arriving at the location, WRIGHT observed that the Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge is a two lane bridge and opined that eight blocks of C-4 will take out a good chunk of it or it will at least drop out a whole section of the bridge. The CHS said they should walk down along the side of the train tracks running tmdemeath the bridge; however WRIGHT wanted to go in the middle, away from the railroad tracks and people. He also stated that if the bridge loses one of the arches the whole thing will probably come down...

Finally, the group discussed what would happen if they were caught. Baxter thought that they will all go to Guantanamo Bay if they get caught, they will not go to a normal prison. To prevent capture, he suggested getting tacks that they could throw out of the back of the car if they get caught in a chase.

Since you ask — there were actually a total of six stooges:

Moe, Larry, Shemp, Curly, Joe, and Curly Joe.

Well yes that’s true but only three appeared at any given time. At any rate all 5 of these give new dimension to the word “Morons”.

It’s from a short called Hold That Lion! that starred Larry, Moe and Shemp. It was after Curly had a stroke and retired. He was hanging around the set and did a cameo in the film. It’s the only time all three stooges who were brothers (Curly, Moe and Shemp) are in the same film.
