NEW YORK (AP) - The Occupy Wall Street movement, which has spent a month bashing banks and other corporations, has become a money manager itself.
The movement has $435,000 - $85,000 of it donated in person at the Manhattan park that's become the epicenter of the global "anti-greed" protests and the remainder from online credit-card donations, said Darrell Prince, an activist using his business background to keep track of the daily donations.
"It's way more support than we ever thought would come in," Prince said.

FREEPATHON WOULD ALREADY BE OVER!
I’m assuming this doesn’t include what some of the protesters are being paid to be there.
NYC is the ‘Useful Idiot’ capital of the world. No doubt about it.
Are they paying their fair share in taxes....?
Apparently $100 bucks a day.
Assuming they are there 24 hours a day. That’s 4.17 an hour to do NOTHING.
It’s a Bizarro World...
This country will get the government it deserves.
Read Isaiah chapter 3.
It will explain a lot of what you see in OWS and its supporters.
TAXES, “WE DON’T PAY NO STINKIN TAXES”
Anyway there is a TREE in WASHINGTON, D.C. that produces Billion Dollar BILLS. /s
The term "useful idiots" has been attributed to Lenin, as a description of those mindless people in the Western democracies who would always find ways to excuse whatever the Soviet Union did. Columnist Mona Charen's new book Useful Idiots shows that such people are still with us.
Long after the Soviet Union's horrors had become too widely known around the world for their sympathizers in the West to be able to get away with whitewashing the USSR, new Communist dictatorships arose to become the new objects of the affections of the Western intelligentsia and of like-minded people in the media and in politics.
Look who is handling the money for them.
ALLIANCE FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE:
By Chuck Kaufman (AFGJ National Co-Coordinator)
The Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ) and its predecessor and founder, the Nicaragua Network, have been well-known grassroots organizations within the Central and Latin America solidarity movement and the anti-corporate globalization movement for over three decades. For probably 25 years weve used our 501(c)(3) non-profit tax status to fiscally sponsor projects that do not have their own tax-exempt status. These started mostly as Nicaragua humanitarian aid projects to build a school, raise money for scholarships, etc. In the late 1990s we were approached by United Students Against Sweatshops to become their fiscal sponsor and since then we have added a few projects a year which have approached us. We see this as very much a part of our organizations mission to achieve social change and economic justice by helping to build a stronger more unified grassroots movement. Its not our main work. We have our own programs that work to change US policies military, trade, labor, and human rights primarily toward Latin America, and which act in solidarity with popular movements and progressive governments.
Our fiscal sponsorship of the Occupy Wall Street action has brought attention from the press and public that we havent seen since the 1980s when we were the lead organization fighting against Reagans proxy war against the Sandinista government in Nicaragua, known as the Contra War. Even our fiscal sponsorship and central role in planning the April 2000 IMF/World Bank demonstration, arguably the high water mark of the anti-corporate globalization movement, did not generate quite the focus on AfGJ that Occupy Wall Street has.
The Egyptian protest king is here advising the Occupods.
I wonder what hotel Bill Ayres and old Bernadine are staying in now? They cannot be far away. They did assist in the Egypt fiasco.
Anyone seen John Kerry and ole money bags Theresa.
You mean ‘Cash’ and Kerry!?
You mean ‘Cash’ and Kerry!?
Why yes indeed! :-)
And none of the Occupiers have their shorts in a knot about the trillions going to Europe. Go figger.
stupid , if some business is hurt because of OWS, now they have assets to attach.
They are taking donations via CREDIT CARD and putting them IN A BANK.
Irony, the Mark of Quality Literature
Hey works for me. Maybe the City can sue? Bloomberg...NAH
> Are they paying their fair share in taxes....?
Taxes are for the bourgeoisie like you and me.
The hollywood elite, the super-rich like buffet and soros, the politios like kerry an klinton, and the proletariat and welfare recipients, none of them are required to pay taxes, according to their neo-marxist vision.
That’s one of the reasons I so strongly support 999. Imagine Soros having to pay 9% tax to purchase a new limo or yacht. Imagine the filthy vermin in OWS having to pay 9% tax on a new Che Guevara t-shirt.
I do not mind paying the tax, because I have to pay taxes anyway. 999 simply shifts the tax for me. It may come to a bit more, it may come to a bit less, but it’s overall a wash for me.
But the above mentioned groups have been getting away scot-free, living off the taxes borne by the average middle-class taxpayer.
Nice link! Thanks.
That money should be going to pay the overtime for the cops who should be pursuing violent criminals and potential terrorists not babysitting misanthropes.
It amazes me how intelligent, well educated people can embrace the same communisst/socialist/marxist policies again and again. Do any of them study history or do they actually believe these forms of government can work. Main stream media, hollywood, some of our leaders are all useful idiots and I just can't understand it.
"Gleeful about the raging riots that held England captive this week, the tweet has gone out to activists and disaffected youth to occupy wall street Sept 17 today. Social Networks FaceBook and Twitter are abuzz with plans for coming anarchy on U.S. soil.
The Days of Rage will continue beyond the occupation of Wall Street with activists being told bring your tent.
The original "Days of Rage"
Days of Rage riots (1969)
The Days of Rage riots in Chicago took place over a 4-day period beginning October 8, 1969, after members of the Weathermen, a militant offshoot of the Students for a Democratic Society [SDS], converged on the city to confront police in the streets in response to the trial of the group of anti-Vietnam War activists known as the "Chicago Eight".

A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.
In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism. With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democratically self-managed by the workers.
Anarcho-syndicalists seek to abolish the wage system and private ownership of the means of production, which they believe lead to class divisions. Important principles include workers' solidarity, direct action (such as general strikes and workplace recuperations), and workers' self-management. This is compatible with other branches of anarchism, and anarcho-syndicalists often subscribe to anarchist communist or collectivist anarchist economic systems. Its advocates propose labour organization as a means to create the foundations of a non-hierarchical anarchist society within the current system and bring about social revolution.

Undercover agent Larry Grathwohl discusses the Weather Underground's post-revolution governing plans for the United States:
"I asked, 'well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?' and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say 'eliminate,' I mean 'kill.' Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."
"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

Exclusive: Bill Ayers Talks About Election Night in Grant Park
From NBC Chicago, Jan 21, 2009:
Bill Ayers was "overflowing with happiness, relief, love" when he and his wife went to Grant Park with tens of thousands of Chicagoans to celebrate the election of President Barack Obama.
Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, spoke exclusively with NBC Chicago's Dick Johnson about why they joined the Election Night celebration in the park, where 40 years before they helped stage the Days of Rage riots.
The couple said they got last-minute tickets from a friend to be in Grant Park that night.
"I couldn't stop crying a couple of times. I found the exact spot where I was beaten 40 years ago," Ayers said. "But I've never been in a crowd that large that wasn't edged with either anger or drunkenness or gluttony, and it was really an extraordinary feeling."
"This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who's a professor of English..."

Bill Ayers: "I considered myself partly an anarchist then and I consider myself partly an anarchist now. I mean, I'm as much an anarchist as I am a Marxist which is to say I find a lot of the ideas in anarchism appealing."
He [NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly] said that following Wednesday's [Oct 12, 2011] 10,000-strong union march, a much smaller group tried to storm police barricades at Wall Street and Broadway.
"They locked their arms. They counted down - 10, 9, 8, 7, 6. Then they decided to charge the police. That is going to be met with some physical force," Kelly said.

Re: Kent State, 1969
"the purpose of all this agitation at Kent State was to recruit as much cannon fodder as possible, and then to provoke a "major confrontation." When it came, it would be neither accidental nor spontaneous. It would be exactly what the revolutionaries wanted.
On April 8, 1969, S.D.S. toughs marched through various campus buildings, disrupting classes as planned, chanting "Ho, Ho, Ho chi Minh," and striking campus police officers. One of these hoodlums pleaded nolo contendere to a charge of assault and battery, and drew a fine and jail sentence. The university scheduled a disciplinary hearing for two others on April sixteenth, at which time about one hundred revolutionaries smashed into the Music and Speech building where the hearing was being held, destroyed property, and again attacked police officers. Of the fifty-eight demonstrators arrested, ten were not even students at the school. At the rally preceding the march on the disciplinary hearing, non-student Jim Mellen told the audience as follows: "We're no longer asking you to come and help us make a revolution. We're telling you that the revolution has begun, and the only choice you have to make is which side you're on. And we're also telling you that if you get in the way of the revolution, it's going to run right over you." Mr. Mellen's remarks were included in a liberally distributed S.D.S. pamphlet, which began with a quotation from Mao Tse-tung and the following warning: "The war is on at Kent State University ...."
At a meeting in Williams Hall on April 28, 1969, revolutionary Communist Bernardine Dohrn said that people fighting "oppression" would have to carry weapons for "self defense." On May sixth, at another campus rally, Joyce Cecora called for armed rebellion: "They used guns at Cornell and they got what they wanted. It will come to that here!" And at still another rally on campus on May twenty-second, S.D.S. member Rick Skirvin said this: "We'll start blowing up buildings, we'll start buying guns, we'll do anything to bring this motherf***er down."
Michener quotes a student named Ken Tennant as follows: "With me it goes back to the music festival they held at Fred Fuller Park in September, 1969. Four Weathermen came down from Chicago, with insignia on their bib overalls. They were selling their organization newspaper, and I said, 'I'll buy a copy if you'll tell me what your outfit stands for.' They said, 'We're going to destroy this corrupt American society and build a better.' I asked how, and they explained, 'We've decided to close down schools all over the nation. We're going to start in Chicago. But we have our eye on Kent State, too. It could be ripe.' "
Bear in mind that we have room here to cite only a few examples of the inflammatory agitation and propaganda on the campus at Kent State for almost two years. The evidence establishesin the words of the revolutionariesthat the goal of S.D.S. was to provoke a violent confrontation in which somebody would be hurt, or even worse.
And the most incredible such example took place on April 10, 1970, when Jerry Rubin spoke on the campus at Kent State. Jerry Rubin is a Communist, of course. We can be absolutely sure of that because he has said so repeatedly. In fact he said he was a Communist when your reporter asked him about it at the Democrat National Convention in Miami in 1972. At that Convention Rubin also said that, when he and his Comrades take over, your reporter will be gassed. At Kent State, Communist Jerry Rubin said this: "The first part of the Yippie program is to kill your parents. And I mean that quite literally, because until you're prepared to kill your parents, you're not ready to change this country. Our parents are our first oppressors."
Your first reaction on reading a thing like this, of course, is that maybe I have taken it out of context. You refuse to believe that anybody would say this. But Rubin really told the students what you just read. It is important to remember that, at the time, Jerry Rubin was a convicted criminalhe had been convicted for leading the turmoil at the 1968 Democrat National Convention in Chicago, where terrorists attacked the policewhich raises the question of how such a man could be permitted to address students on a university campus in Ohio.**
Rubin also told the Kent State students to burn down the suburbs. "The American school system will be ended in two years," he explained. "We are going to bring it down. Quit being students. Become criminals. We have to disrupt every institution and break every law. We should have more laws so we can break them, too. Everybody should have their own law to break." As for the campus itself, Comrade Rubin told the students to ignore their professors, and to "burn all the books. It's quiet here now but things are going to start again."
The campus was now ready. Almost two years of intensive Communist propaganda had their effect. A sufficient number of students was willing to serve as cannon fodder for the revolutionary "cause." The Communists needed only an excuse to provoke their "major confrontation." Three weeks later they got their excuse.
"...it is important to quote at length from the state grand jury report on the affair: "Fifty-eight Guardsmen were injured by rocks and other objects hurled at them as they moved across the 'Commons' to Taylor Hall Hill and down to the practice football field, and were then forced to retreat .... it is clear that from the time the Guard reached the practice football field, they were on the defensive and had every reason to be concerned for their own welfare .... The circumstances present at that time indicate that 74 men surrounded by several hundred hostile rioters were forced to retreat back up the hill toward Taylor Hall under a constant barrage of rocks and other flying objects, accompanied by a constant flow of obscenities and chants such as 'Kill, Kill, Kill.' Photographic evidence has established, beyond any doubt, that as the National Guardsmen approached the top of the hill adjacent to Taylor Hall, a large segment of the crowd surged up the hill, led by smaller groups of agitators approaching to within short distances of the rear ranks of the Guardsmen.
"The testimony of the students and Guardsmen is clear that several members of the Guard were knocked to the ground or to their knees by the force of the objects thrown at them. ..."

Forgetting the Evils of Communism: The amnesia bites a little deeper
By Jonah Goldberg, August 2008:
There is no way to confirm these numbers since there are no laws regulting disclosure. Even so an average of 5000 slimeball demonstrators per dy for 35 days or so have pulled in about $8000 per day or about $1.60 per day per demonstrator.
I don’t find this at all impressive and I note we have heard nothing of any other areas having any success with donations. It’s clearly not a grass roots movement with the likes of the SEIU,NEA, Nazi party and Communist Party all on the scene. Plus we have the word Soros is behind this and is more then likely responsible for most of the money being handed to the creeps.
And they try to equate these people with the TP movement? What’s REALLY funny is these scumbags spent the last 2 years denigrating the TP calling them every foul name they could come up with and now claim to be just like them.
Inded, liberalism is a mental disorder.
It has always been this way concerning these groups. They PAY the demonstrators. No of them have a real life anyway. And they are filthy pigs (sorry pigs but you know it’s true)
then you have the Tea Party where people attended at their own expense. and actually made sure they didn’t cause any destruction of property etc.
Even if an organization called “Occupy Wall Street” has a bank account and the ability to accept donations via credit card, there have to be authorized signers on that bank account. Certainly not just any of the hangers on can go to the bank and withdraw money.
So, do we know who set up these bank accounts? Who are the authorized officers or signers of the organization which has this bank account? Who decides to spend the money in what way? Who pays taxes on the interest income of this money?
There’s a lot we don’t know about these people, or the people behind the scenes who are orchestrating all of this.

How can these loonies have somebody with a “business background” in their midst? To listen to the parade of kooks and crackpots, I thought that any business people are the enemy. I’m surprised they allow this dude to be part of their group.
I wonder how many of those fools know about the half million dollars?
Perhaps it should be divided equally among the protesters regardless of how long they were there.
Is the government going to administer it?
Apparently it’s about WHO controls the money, not the money it’s self.
These people are “straight Up” Fascist. I have no doubt on that. IMO
Good work? if you can get it. I guess???
