  • Occupy Ports: West Coast occupiers unite (Will try to shut down numerous W. Coast ports)

    The Global Post ^ | December 9, 2011 | Stephanie Rice
    OAKLAND — As anti-Wall Street protesters attempt to regroup and settle in for winter after a series of police raids that stripped much of the movement of its signature camps, protesters on the West Coast are staging a comeback. On Dec. 12, Occupy movements from Seattle to San Diego say they will shut down their local ports, temporarily stopping the flow of capital on the West Coast. Organizers say they aim to disrupt the business of the “1 percent” — in this case, the corporations that own shipping terminals and do business at the ports. If successful, shutting down the...
  • Democrat says GOP trying to deny blacks the right to vote

    A Democratic lawmaker said Wednesday on the House floor that Republican legislators around the country are purposefully trying to deny blacks the right to vote by pushing for voter identification laws. “It’s no coincidence that a disproportionate number of these affected voters come from communities of color as well as the poor, the elderly and students,” said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus. “Having been born and raised in Texas, this certainly looks like a poll tax to me, which those of us remember as a way to prevent African Americans from voting. These...

    Last week, I discussed how Occupy protesters are being directly aided by the mainstream media and indirectly aided by White House stimulus money, as well as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's and even Vice President Joe Biden's households. I also detailed how the mainstream media are accelerating their progressive blitz not only to hasten the second coming, or election, of President Barack Obama but also to help him and other progressives in reaching their final goal of "fundamentally transforming the United States of America." I believe the MSM are also bent to coronate a particular GOP candidate whom they feel...

    Expose Occupy Wallstreet ^ | 11 / 20 2011 | Aaron Klein
    The Occupy movement is stepping up its confrontational tactics, plotting “alternative forms of protest,” including flash mobs that can be deployed nationwide. Citing the success of last week’s so-called Day of Action protests, Take to the Square, one of Occupy’s main online planning forums, has devised an “Alternative Day of Action” to coincide with international Human Rights Day on Dec. 10. “Our freedom and dignity are under attack as a result of market dynamics and corrupt government institutions that are turning our local and global societies into increasingly unjust places,” the site complains. The Occupy forum calls for “alternative forms...
  • Occupy Wall Street – Of Course Obama is OK With it – It’s Just More Alinsky

    AlinskyDefeater's Blog ^ | 2011-10-24 | AlinskyDefeater
    Rules for Radicals, p. 113, “The first step in community organization is community disorganization.” It’s no wonder that President Obama and other politicos on the Left have embraced the Occupy Wall Street movement. They do it, not in spite of the excesses, but because of the excesses. In true Alinsky fashion Obama finds affinity with a group of anti-capitalists who defecate on police vehicles. Obama is a product of his Alinsky training, and of the 1960′s counter-revolution. It is second nature for Obama to sanction the types of political dissent with which he is familiar. When he saw a peaceful...

    You have to read pretty far down into the Politico story before you find that response from Herman Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon, and the article sticks all the exculpatory material at the end: Ron Magruder, Denise Marie Fugo and Joseph Fassler, the chair, vice chair and immediate past chairman of the National Restaurant Association board of directors at the time of Cain’s departure, said they hadn’t heard about any complaints regarding Cain making unwanted advances. “I have never heard that. It would be news to me,” said Fugo, who runs a Cleveland, Ohio, catering company, adding such behavior would be...

    MoveOn.org is planning to launch a protest movement of its own to compliment the Occupy Wall Street momentum with the stated goal of "make[ing] Wall Street pay" and rebuilding the entire U.S. financial system. MoveOn.org is funded by the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation. Another grantee of Tides is the Adbusters magazine, which is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after Arab Spring protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. The new MoveOn.org Wall Street campaign serves as further evidence suggesting the anti-Wall Street movement is a well-planned campaign and not the spontaneous uprising its...

    From our friend Michael Walsh at the National Review’s The Corner. He’s got a historical piece referencing the “progressive” action in Rochester, N.Y. during the mid-to-late 1960s and how they relate to current protests. Read the full post, but a taste… Alinsky rode into town on a one-trick pony that the Left has since turned into its warhorse: Agitate one side’s grievances, and appeal to another side’s decency and gullibility in order to provoke the establishment, whose reaction will unite the other two. Then the community organizer charges in on his nag-turned-steed and proceeds to set the rot in motion...

    In case you haven’t figured it out by now, what’s going on in Washington and across the country is the Full Alinsky, brought to you by the same malcontents who have been awaiting this moment for more than 40 years. It’s been a long time wandering in the desert for the Sixties Left, but this is their moment, this is their time, as somebody or other from Punahou once said.  The Great Man himself was already there, agitating and “organizing” for two years by the time I got to Rochester, N.Y., in the fall of 1967 to attend the Eastman...

    He could not resist drawing the obvious parallel. When United States President Barack Obama spoke at the unveiling of a towering, 30-foot sculpture of civil rights leader Martin Luther King on Washington's National Mall, he came as close as he could to endorsing Occupy Wall Street, the modern-day equivalent of the 1960s social movement. Reflecting on Dr. King's Mahatma Gandhi-inspired belief in non-violent civil disobedience as a means of protest, Mr. Obama said if Dr. King were still alive, “I believe he would remind us that the unemployed worker can rightly challenge the excesses of Wall Street without demonising all...

    The days of unbiased reporting are well behind us. What we have now are news agencies who are bent on furthering a political agenda. Proof positive comes in the form of a Reuters story with a somewhat confusing title: “Alabama immigration law decried, applauded as some flee state.” (Click here for original story) The title is somewhat ambiguous as to who is “decrying” and who is “applauding” but the article leaves little doubt as to the ideological leanings of the author(s): (Reuters) – A climate of fear and panic has taken hold in Alabama’s immigrant community since a federal judge...

    As Allahpundit wrote of last night's Senate vote to block the president's jobs bill, the outcome was just about as perfect as it could have been for the president, whose jobs package, loaded as it was with tax hikes Republicans were bound to reject out of hand, wasn't designed to pass in the first place. The vote last night provides the basis for Democrats to blame Republican obstructionism for the next 13 months of a slow-to-no recovery, and blame ‘em they will. But they won’t just blame “Generic Republicans.” As the Senate now lays its plans to vote piece by...

    For two years conservatives indulged themselves in unheard-of dogwhistle campaigns against this young African-American President while enlightened liberals pointed it out in a mild, somewhat derisive fashion but with little outrage. Now, in the aftermath of the midterm 'shellacking', a New Confederacy is rising with the assistance of the tea party and John Birchers, and it's getting enough traction in Congress to do real damage. The scary part? It's working. Fact: We are NOT living in a post-racial society. Not on the liberal side, and not on the conservative side. As nice as it is to think that we've transcended...

    New York magazine recently tracked down actor Samuel L. Jackson to show him the Rick Perry nearly-invisible-N-word "scoop" and then asked him if he agreed with Morgan Freeman that the Tea Party was racist. Of course, he said. He also thought the Perry story was a political plus: "it's not going to hurt Perry's reputation in a whole lot of places, so it's not a big deal." New York magazine said What? He replied: "Are you serious? He's a Republican and this is America." First, on the Tea Party: "It’s pretty obvious what they are," Jackson told us. "The division...

    Van Jones is unabashedly anti-Tea Party. After resigning from the Obama administration back in 2009, the former “green jobs” adviser seems to have finally found a calling in railing against the conservative movement. During “Take Back the American Dream” this week, a three-day conference in Washington, D.C., intended to inspire liberal activists and their enthusiasts, Jones slammed the Tea Party, dismissing its cause as “silly” and “the worst.” However, his jabs were also countered with some positive compliments about the inner workers of the Tea Party — a movement that has become a part of the nation’s political discourse.

    I once had a conversation with a well-connected Democrat in Washington, D.C., with regard to lack of advertising in conservative publications. Without missing a beat, she said it was because "advertisers and corporate America are petrified of the far left. The executives at these companies fear that if they advertise in conservative outlets, the far left will harass them, boycott them, threaten them, and picket them forever until they give in to the thuggish behavior." I then pointed out that these same companies who for the most part shun conservative outlets are thrilled to advertise in far-left magazines like Mother...
