Here's The Real Reason Why Occupy Wall Street Protesters Aren't Getting Kicked Out Of Zuccotti Park

Here's The Real Reason Why Occupy Wall Street Protesters Aren't Getting Kicked Out Of Zuccotti ParkRobert Johnson | Oct. 11, 2011, 12:00 PM | 13,897 | 23 Coming on the heels of the Solyndra debacle, the Obama administration has just approved a $168.9 million loan guarantee for the Granite Reliable wind farm project owned by Brookfield Asset Management (BAM). Among its many holdings BAM owns Brookfield Renewable Power, which owns the Granite Reliable and it also owns Brookfield Office Properties, whose holdings include the now famous Zuccotti Park. The Department of Energy finalized the loan guarantee less than a week after Occupy Wall Street protesters took to Zuccotti Park, and with the Obama administration's Tuesday endorsement of the protests, rumors are starting to circulate that this could be the reason Brookfield is allowing protesters to remain on its property. The Granite Reliable Power Project under construction in Coos Bay, New Hampshire is the state's largest wind farm and the New Hampshire Union Leader questions why Brookfield would need federal subsidies at all, particularly following the bankruptcy of Solyndra. Mayor Bloomberg's announcement Monday that protesters could remain as long as they liked, also raised a few eyebrows and it turns out he has a personal connection to Brookfield as well. The mayor's longtime domestic partner Diana Taylor is on the Board of Directors at Brookfield Properties along with John E. Zuccotti himself.

Yes. As I said on that thread yesterday, saying that they’ll kick them out is one thing; doing it is another.

This didn’t surprise me one bit. Bloomberg was just trying to play both sides and avoid any loss of votes among his leftist or his Wall Street bases.

And I presume that his very lucrative business also requires him to stay on good terms with Wall Street. But he obviously didn’t really mean it. And he has blamed the failure to clean up on a couple of other politicians who don’t mind being known as friends of the hippie left.

I wonder how long it will take to recover - if we ever recover - from the disasterous Bloomberg.

Just heard a heart-rending interview on Sean Hannity’s show with a small business owner near the park. Business down 40%, vendors refusing to service her, bathrooms trashed, employees pushed, shoved and cursed at.

It’s as if the Brooklyn pogram is back again.

OK everyone, all together now, ACT surprised.

If you simply go back to the beginning, to the group that first called for these protests, you will find the Canadian group (go figure) Adbusters Media Foundation.

Who are they? Recipients of over $300,000 from George Soros’s Tides Foundation. Say it ain’t so! They got another $176,500 from another of his orgs—the Democracy Alliance. The US Day Of Rage group, also part of this protest got money from the Tides Foundation also.

That was just some of the organizers. When Moveon.org moved in last week with the Union thugs and a host of other partisan groups the full body of Soros crews were now encamped.

It’s an evil web. I suspect nobama will go down as the worst President ever. I also suspect he will go down as the most corrupt President ever.

This is disgusting.

saying that they’ll kick them out is one thing; doing it is another.

I think 40,000 NY cops could kick a few hundred faggots out of the park. I am sure enough of it I'd make a wager.

For those who have never been there Zuccotti Park isn't very big.

No, no. Of course they can kick them out if they want to.

But my prediction was accurate. Mayor Bloomberg SAID he was going to kick them out the next day.

He lied. He said one thing and did another.
