  • Exclusive: Email From Lisa Fithian to #OccupyWallStreet Conforms ACORN Role In Occupy's Next Assault

    Big Government ^ | 11/16/11 | Joel B. Pollak
    Lisa Fithian–the radical organizer whose role in Occupy was first exposed at Big Government–has apparently confirmed that ACORN-linked organizations are leading the Occupy movement’s next major protest action against banks nationwide. Fox News reported earlier today that remnants of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), the radical community organizing group that collapsed after its corruption was exposed by Big Government, are playing a “behind the scenes” role in organizing the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. The Fox News investigation followed Matthew Vadum’s report two weeks ago at Big Government that ACORN was paying people to attend the Occupy Wall...

    BERKELEY, Calif. — Goodbye, city park, hello, college green. As city officials around the country move to disband Occupy Wall Street encampments amid growing concerns over health and public safety, protesters have begun to erect more tents on college campuses. “We are trying to get mass numbers of students out,” said Natalia Abrams, 31, a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles, and an organizer with Occupy Colleges, a national group coordinating college-based protesters. Though only a handful of colleges have encampments, tents went up last week at Harvard in Cambridge, Mass., and here at the University of California,...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 2011-11-10 | Jennifer Levitz
    BOSTON–Chanting “hands off” and “no cuts,” hundreds of seniors rallied here to warn Congress’s deficit-cutting supercommittee to stay away from Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. “When you get older, you need help, not cuts,” said Steve Ciardi, a former pipe fitter who has multiple sclerosis and was in a wheelchair being pushed by his wife, Patty. “That is what the country is about – helping people,” she said. AARP Massachusetts, the SEIU and AFL-CIO labor unions, and several senior activist groups are organizing the event, which kicked off this morning with a rally at the historic Wang Theatre in downtown...

    We have all heard the Occupy Wall Street movement (OWS) described as a grassroots movement. We have been told that it just sprang up after Adbusters, a Canadian left-wing magazine, floated the idea on the internet. The Dominant Liberal Establishment Media (DLEM) has continued repeating this implausible propaganda line since September, despite emerging evidence that OWS has actually been orchestrated by a who’s who list of American radical extremists. It has become clear that Adbusters is just one of a host of leftist organizations, supported by the Tides Foundation and/or George Soros, that have been jointly planning the OWS movement...

    Andrew Breitbart's Big Government ^ | November 2, 2011 | Publius
    Lee Stranahan and Brandon Darby have released the latest video clip from their visit to Occupy Wall Street. In the video, an activist named Channing, who has been at the Occupy Wall Street protests from the beginning, volunteers the information that the former ACORN organization–through its new front group, New York Communities for Change–is paying $10 per hour and $100 per day to homeless people to attend the demonstrations. She suggests that ACORN’s involvement is unwelcome, alleging that its homeless employees are “being paid to come here and mess things up.” Channing’s information corroborates reporting by Big Government on ACORN’s...

    How very curious:   A sign that the Occupy Wall Street movement isn’t the best long-term vehicle for Democrats to connect themselves with: A new Quinnipiac poll, showing a plurality of voters viewing the group unfavorably.  The poll, released today, show 30 percent of voters surveyed view the movement favorably, 39 percent unfavorably, with an additional 30 percent not hearing enough to have an opinion.  It’s one of the first national polls to suggest voters are growing skeptical of Occupy Wall Street- and it comes as police have clashed with protesters in several cities.  Previous national polls have shown a plurality of...

    Another good one from Lee Stranahan, Brandon Darby, and Big Government, starring the same well-spoken protester from last night’s clip. We already knew that New York Communities for Change, a.k.a. the artists formerly known as ACORN, were hiring the homeless as ringers to pad the size of the protests. Fox News reported on that a few weeks ago and further alleged that some of the new hires were being sent out to fundraise under false pretenses. What’s curious about this clip is that “Channing” thinks some of the ringers being shipped in by NYCC are creating problems at the park,...

    “The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” – Winston Churchill The continuing Occupy Wall Street carnival increasingly attracts support from politicians. The usual radicals lurk behind the curtains orchestrating havoc so Democrats can co-opt any purity the movement might once have claimed. Big Labor, ACORN’s successors and even George Soros have been linked to the Alinskyite chaos. While Republicans ridicule these ungrateful recipients of capitalist riches, demagogic politicos fuel their fire in fascinating ways. To appease their base, Democrats escalate class antagonisms by demonizing wealth...
