F.B.I. Counterterrorism Agents Monitored Occupy Movement, Records Show
By MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT and COLIN MOYNIHAN

WASHINGTON The Federal Bureau of Investigation used counterterrorism agents to investigate the Occupy Wall Street movement, including its communications and planning, according to newly disclosed agency records.
In the following months, F.B.I. personnel around the country were routinely involved in exchanging information about the movement with businesses, local law-enforcement agencies and universities.
An October 2011 memo from the bureaus Jacksonville, Fla., field office was titled Domain Program Management Domestic Terrorist.
The memo said agents discussed past and upcoming meetings of the movement, and its spread.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi "God bless them for their spontaneity. It's independent, it's young, it's spontaneous, and it's focused. And it's going to be effective."
Plus Pelosi wasn’t afraid of Occupy Wallstreet like she was of those “Tea Partiers” who were “like the groups” she saw in the 60s.
Ya know, some people just need to die and go away. Pelosi is one of those.
Or at least have her face fall off.
I should hope so. They were in some cases terrorists.
Merry Christmas everyone.
The Occupy Movement was many things, but spontaneous it wasn’t. The ideas were laid out decades ago by Saul Alinsky, Cloward & Piven, the marxist base of Obama - the Democratic Socialists of America, and the Red/Black Bloc of anarchists (the most psychopath wing of the anti-establishment movement).
And what’s more, they made no secret about it. Our government failed to destroy the violent movements in their infancy so street violence rose to new levels at the WTO and various political conventions, literally unchecked by the police who DIDN’T UNDERSTAND THE MARXIST AND ANARCHIST NATURE OF THE ENEMY.
If you go to information sites such as www.DiscoverTheNetwork.org and www.keywiki.org, you will see a lot of information on the Occupy Movement that you didn’t see in the mainstream press. This includes the communist/marxist backgrounds of many OWS leaders.
Thanks to FreeRepublic readers and others, the true backgrounds of OWS people were made known to these sites who had the sense to put it into their system for all to see.
Also, if you read publications by OWS groups and supporters, you will see a tremendous amount of information on their origins, plans, strategies and goals. Some of it was foreign, while some came from more than one group or individual in the US and Canada.
Joined by the Anarcho-Marxists, OWS became more of a violent anti-free enterprise movement than was originally planned. The Anarchists (who have morphed into Marxist shocktroops in many areas), are the new Weathermen and pose a direct threat to the security of the country, its business institutions, and just plain people in the street.
Hopefully someone in the FBI actually can break-down the component parts of the OWS Movement so as to get a much more accurate picture of just who they are, what they want, and what they are willing to do to get it.
The cited Partnership for Civil Justice Fund is literally an adjunct of the marxist National Lawyers Guild (NLG), an old Communist Party USA legal arm from the 1930’s.
The woman who runs the Partnership, with her husband, is a member of the NLG and also was a big supporter of the psychopathic Stalinist “Workers World Party”, though today she supports its split off, the Party for Socialism and Liberation(PLS).
The mainstream media has totally failed to identifiy Mara Verheyden-Hilliard as a marxist. For instance, she was part of the “International Solidarity Session” of the avowedly marxist “Party for Socialism and Liberation” at their 2008 “National Conference on Socialism”, LA, Dec. 6-7, 2008
The PSL was a split off faction of the Workers World Party and functions as its west coast competitive cousin. The PSL defines itself as “(re 2008) is a newly formed working class party of leaders and activists from many different struggles, founded to promote the movement for revolutionary change....We are fighting for socialism, a system where the wealth of society belongs to those who produce it, the working class, and is used in a planned and sustainable way for the benefit of all...”
Says it all.
I suspect that there were also investigations of the tea party movement (based on Pelosi and Obama’s claims that they were an extremist movement prone to racism and violence).
But unlike the Occupantload movement, no one in the tea party movement “took the bait” if an undercover agent tried to sting them in a bomb plot. A different value system. A different consideration of right and wrong and whether law enforcement officers are “fascists” or not (to an anarchist, all government funded law enforcement is fascist).
Hitler’s Kristallnacht was “spontaneously” organized by the SS. I wonder which arm of the US government organized the Occupy movement? Possibly the one in charge of monitoring it for violent tendencies?
You have it backwards FRiend....make that “Die and go away”.
Many taxpayer dollars were spent attempting to control the OWS assholes and cleaning up after them.
Was anything achieved thereby?
