    The National Lawyers Guild says it has obtained a court that allows Occupy Wall St. protesters to return with tents to a New York City park. The guild says the injunction prevents the city from enforcing park rules on Occupy Wall Street protesters. Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the city knew about the court order but has not seen it. He says the city plans to go court immediately.

    Hours After Manhattan Residents March On City Hall, Bloomberg Responds [snip] "...The OWS movement in New York City had become a serious detriment to residents and business owners living and working in the area near Zuccotti. Bloomberg was constantly under siege from residents to do something about the noise and reports of unsanitary conditions, in addition to the negative impact the demonstrations were having on local businesses. Residents got so enraged they decided to do something about it on Monday by marching on City Hall. WCBS 880′s Marla Diamond On The Story (see link) “No, I’m not going to take...

    (Reuters) - Protesters hope to shut down Wall Street on Thursday -- home to the New York Stock Exchange -- by holding a street carnival to mark the two-month anniversary of their campaign against economic inequality. Protest organizers acknowledged that the "day of action" could be the group's most provocative yet, and could lead to mass arrests and further strain relations with city authorities. "I think we're certainly going into this with our eyes wide open, but (the march is) to provoke ideas and discussion, not to provoke any violent reactions," said Occupy Wall Street spokesman Ed Needham. "I think...

    I was an activist and organizer in the antiwar and civil rights movements of the 1960s and '70s - movements that are reborn today in the Occupy protests. I hope today's activists can learn from our experience. I was in Students for a Democratic Society and was affiliated with the Weather Underground. As a member of Weather's aboveground support network, I worked to forge bonds between clandestine and public activists. I ran bail bond money when people got arrested and the donors wanted anonymity. I helped a brave man find a place to hide from the police. I studied martial...

    PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland police believe that some protesters inside the Occupy Portland encampments are building shields and makeshift weapons -- including nails hammered into wood -- in preparation for when authorities attempt to clear the parks this weekend, police said Friday. Occupy Portland organizers have repeatedly said the movement is nonviolent and have appealed to demonstrators to resist peacefully when the camps close at midnight on Saturday. They planned public marches and a potluck dinner before the deadline and hoped the public would take part. But police said as many as 150 anarchists may come to Portland to take...
  • Occupy Wall Street – Of Course Obama is OK With it – It’s Just More Alinsky

    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...

    Since mid-September, the "Occupy Wall Street" protests have dragged on, and the Democrat-media complex continues to insist the movement is just like the Tea Party. But a post at Verum Serum notes the cost to American taxpayers so far: •Occupy Asheville – $170,000 •Occupy Atlanta – $451,691 •Occupy Austin – $78,000 •Occupy Boston – $150,000 •Occupy Charlotte – $1,700 per day •Occupy Denver $365,000 •Occupy LA – $45,000 plus estimated $400,000 to repair the lawn •Occupy Minneapolis – $200,000 •Occupy New York – $3,400,000 •Occupy Oakland – $2,000,000 for police overtime alone •Occupy Philadelphia – $500,000 •Occupy Phoenix – $200,000...

    What follows is a close look at the leftist lawfare campaign of uncivil agitation as it unfolded in Denver last week. Denver, like other cities that have Occupy manifestations, is faced by a core of protesters from anarchist groups, labor unions, and communist organizations, often obscuring their affiliations, mixed in with a mishmash of confused students, concerned citizen activists, children, and all sorts of evil clowns.

    OAKLAND -- More than 100 people were arrested Thursday during a chaotic confrontation in downtown Oakland which a splinter group of protesters set fires, vandalized buildings and hurled objects at police, authorities say. Of the 103 people taken into custody, 32 were from Oakland and another 42 were from other Bay Area cities, officials said. Fifteen arrestees were from other parts of California, while nine were from other states, including Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas and Utah, police said. The hometowns of three people who were arrested could not be determined. Authorities said they arrested 25 women and...

    Cards on the table: y'all know that the Occupy protests and I don't agree politically. Nonetheless, I've been basically supportive of their right to protest, sympathetic to their frustrations with the system, and interested in their problems (and solutions) of self organization in a rather chaotic and fluid situation. Unless there were clear and dramatic harms to the community, I figured the cops should leave them alone until the protests dispersed naturally. (snip) At this point, the movement is hurting itself more than it's helping--at least, if you think their goal is to peacefully and democratically push for changes in...

    Occupy Oakland protesters claimed victory after they shut down one of the nation's busiest shipping ports - escalating a movement whose tactics had largely been limited to marches, rallies and camps. In a five-hour stand-off protesters vandalised businesses and smashed bank windows, as they tried to shut down the city - and police appeared to respond using tear gas and flash bang grenades. The California demonstrators blocked operations at the city's port and stopped traffic on Wednesday in protests against economic inequality and police brutality, marred by scattered vandalism. Police in riot gear arrested dozens of protesters who had marched...

    Boston cops are probing alleged threats by cyber goons tied to Occupy Boston, including online messages urging violence and harassment, officials said. “The Boston Police Department is investigating harassment attempts and threats directed at department personnel. These threats appear to be generated by those either involved or sympathetic with the Occupy Boston movement,” Boston police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said in a statement last night. “The department will not disclose the specific nature of the intelligence gathered relative to this matter. We are taking the appropriate steps to address any potential concerns.” Sources said the threats included publicizing the phone...

    Protesters want government to punish Wall Street. Who’s next? Accolades are being heaped on the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators by the Left and their mainstream media cheerleaders. President Barack Obama proclaimed, "The protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works." Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, "God bless them for their spontaneity!" The list goes on. OWS supporters paint the protesters as examples of what involved Americans should do. Since the original demonstrations began Sept. 17 the protesters have delivered numerous leftist socialist demands that would change our country, but they still been...
