Economic terrorist Behind Wall Street protests? Bring down stock market cause a new $ crisis
Klein Online ^ | 10/6/2011 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 10/07/2011 4:09:45 PM PDT by tutstar

Actual title is too long (really need to expand that title space fr lol)

‘Economic terrorist’ Behind Wall Street protests? Radical’s plan: ‘Bring down stock market’ ‘Literally cause a new financial crisis’.

Stephen Lerner, a controversial anti-Capitalist SEIU organizer, is one of the forces behind the protests on Wall Street and nationwide, according to quotes obtained by a socialist activist who doubles as a Washington Post columnist.

KleinOnline was first to report, Lerner was the brainchild of some of the economic protest templates being used by the Occupy Wall Street campaign.

Lerner recently laid out a mass economic protest plan intended to bring down the stock market. Lerner boasted his plan could be used to cause a new financial crisis. Lerner’s ideology prompted some conservative critics to go so far as to label him an economic terrorist.

Writing in the Washington Post on Tuesday, columnist Harold Meyerson, Vice-Chair of Democratic Socialists of America, quoted Lerner describing how a coalition of various groups are fomenting the current economic protests.

Lerner described himself as part of those groups, referring to the organizations behind the demonstrations as “we.”

KleinOnline reported how those efforts were organized by Lerner, an SEIU board member who reportedly visited the Obama White House at least four times.

Podesta is president of the Center for American Progress, which is heavily influential in advising the White House. The center is funded by philanthropist George Soros.

These clowns couldn’t bring down a tent in a windstorm, even if you showed them how to do it.

If a group of people wanted to bring the US economy to their knees, it would take perhaps only 150K white males to do it. And they wouldn’t have to do anything other than stay home, sit on their buttocks and open a beer.

If the coal miners of the Powder River Basin, the rail employees who haul coal to the power plants all over the midwest, some large farmers and some truckers decided to sit on their rear ends, within two months, there would be entire cities in the dark. Within six months, there would be food shortages.

And the public would have no clue why, no clue who are the people responsible for this turn of events, because there isn’t a whole lot of TV drama in interviewing a guy on his sofa drinking beer.

Well, so far the stock market has gone up all week.

It is electronically traded around the world, anyway.

the GOP when asked about these protests should reply

“I understand why they are angry, this administration has lost so many jobs and people want jobs. They see an economy which has got worse under this president and they are angry.
I understand why they are angry that Wall street and wall street cats billionaires like George Soros has given millions to this administration and how they have helped to bail out certain companies while backing companies like GE which send jobs to China”

I wouldn’t be surprised if the usual suspects weren’t involved.

The plan remains the same, be a leader or be self sufficient but don’t be a burden.

We are in for some ‘interesting times and I hope many of you are prepared to make it through them, beause between the clowns running the economy and the country and the thugs and anarchists in the street I truly believe that times are coming which we’ve only seen in Apocalyptic movies!

What kind of a times you ask, well I think that we are in for something like the collapse of Argentina ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index )but with an Arab Winter.

As recent events show (Flash Mobs, UK riots, etc)this things can turn violent FAST! And the US Has a larger entitlement minded population and a much more violent and armed population than Argentina and most arab countries.

I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and see rape, robbery and murder for murder sake. Many of these ‘yutes’ will think no more about killing you than most people think about stepping on a roach. That will be the test of many. Most preppers I know are Christian people and they will hesitate to do what they might have to do to stop the ‘yutes’. On the other hand the ‘yutes’ won’t think twice nor lose a minute of sleep, in fact they will smile and laugh about it.

Think of this quote which is one of my favorites:

“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8)” (1998)
Quark: Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. They’re a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You don’t believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.

Now go look at some of the videos of the riots in the UK and of some of the flash mobs here in the US and look into there eyes.

This will be drive by ‘Bama’ he knows he is going down and he is bond and deterimed to take us with him. If you think you are hearing the sound of a dirge coming from the White House I suggest that you listen again, because what you are hearing is no funeral music what you are hearing is the Degüello (Slit throat )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKD5TgHWyxM

For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:

http://www.tomeaker.com/kart/preparedness1i.pdf

For those of you who haven’t started already it’s time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.

As the LDS say “When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.”

Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3

Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.

“There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.

Underestimation can be fatal.”

Come to think of it, if you have a list of relevant material handy (STORM handbook, The coming insurrection, etc) it might not hurt for folks to take a look at the plan the marxists are following.

Dave, while you are correct and while I always pay attention to your posts, I need to quibble on this one:

If the power is off and the trucks don’t roll, there will be no TV and, likely, only homemade beer. We will all be way too busy to do anything else, let alone hunt down information. We will also know what happened because we probably all know someone who does at least one of these essential jobs.

That said, IMO, Americans in essential positions are too honorable to bring it all down by not doing their jobs. Unless they are unionized leftist. Then, all bets are off. They may just do it.

Who Is Behind the ‘US Day of Rage’ to ‘Occupy’ Wall Street this September 17th?

A US Day of Rage is ....... orchestrated by a group of radicals — that reportedly include SEIU’s Stephen Lerner and ACORN founder Wade Rathke (who, coincidentally, formerly served as president of SEIU’s local New Orleans branch) — targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism.

yea I hear you when it comes to turning tables and speaking up the GOP seems to go into hiding.

Just imagine though if all republicans used the message I said and turned the tables on these protesters.

The left would be pissed off.
The average voter sitting there watching their local TV would believe it and think this was against zero.

While republicans would not look bad and piss off the left so much that some lefty groups like the commies would feel they are being taken over by the establishment

Republicans? Taking a stand against the new face of the DemocRat party? Taking a stand against the dress rehearsal of ALL major cities becoming filled with riots next year, aided and abetted by the current Islamic Socialist, POS POTUS?

Are you nuts? That would require the elitist Republican establishment wing of the ruling class of growing a huge set of cahones and a backbone at the same time. Give me a break. This would mean they would have to find a soul next and AGREE with conservatives who they hate with every scintilla of their being. Go ahead. Breathe. Holding your breath is not a good thing to do while waiting on the Rockefeller elitist Republican establishment to do the RIGHT thing.

How will another financial crisis help Obama?

Martial law. Suspension of elections. And he could do what he did during the last crisis, have the government take over large failing corporations. That is also part of the Clover-Piven strategy.

I can help Obama in one sense.

Executive Directive 51.

Here’s what it’s about, courtesy of Wikipedia:
The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-20, sometimes called simply “Executive Directive 51” for short), created and signed by United States President George W. Bush on May 4, 2007, is a Presidential Directive which claims power to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a “catastrophic emergency”. Such an emergency is construed as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.”

Note that it allows for the POTUS to execute “continuity procedures” in the event of a “catastrophic emergency”, said emergency being defined as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of.....DISRUPTION SEVERELY AFFECTING THE.....ECONOMY”. Sorry for the caps, but that’s only for emphasis.

Here’s the money shot, again from Wikipedia: The presidential directive says that, when the president considers an emergency to have occurred, an “Enduring Constitutional Government” comprising “a cooperative effort among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government, coordinated by the President,” will take the place of the nation’s regular government.

And, here’s the direct link to the Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Security_and_Homeland_Security_Presidential_Directive

Please feel free to peruse it for yourself.

Heh.

I’m sure it was more people than just VP Cheney that dreamed up this one....more likely a working group.

Notice how it gives everyone a little “skin in the game”; executive, legislative, and judicial branches.

Everyone, that is, except the people. Ominous to me is that it is quite open-ended; the POTUS declares the emergency, then the POTUS, and the POTUS alone, decides when it’s over.

Kind of like a modern-day Enabling Act.

In my opinion this is all about the Obama Administration diverting attention away from Obama’s failures....blame game on the march. Focus the nations people on these idiotic protests and all the misfits joining it to take on Wall Street and Corporate America. While Obama goes on the road campaigning how wonderful he is and how the Banks and Companys have abandoned the American worker.

Never mind that without Banks and Coporations working together there’d be no jobs.

That is kind of ominous. But if they think they can enforce Martial Law right now, after what we have just witnessed coming out of DC, they are not even coherent. They would need millions of troops to enforce that. My guess is they want a civil war which would allow the herd to be thinned with little effort on their part. Either that or they are going to allow a massive attack on the US. Think 911 with nukes. No other logical reason to allow Iran to go nuclear, while you also turn Pakistan into an enemy over stupid drone strikes.
