    The National "Day of Rage," allegedly coordinated by Anonymous, and drawing the attention of DHS, failed to draw crowds at location after location across the nation. A not surprising exception was San Francisco, where a few early-birds were joined by perhaps a hundred or so others who marched alongside a generous police presence mixed among the crowd. Some of the disappointed protestors took to twitter to lament the lack of participants in their areas.

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has issued a bulletin drawing attention to the hactivist group Anonymous’ plans for nationwide protests against the police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. The group has called for a “National Day of Rage” on Thursday to span 38 major U.S. cities. The Threat Management Division of the Federal Protective Service issued the bulletin. “Currently there is no indication that protests are expected to become violent. However, recent protests in Ferguson have resulted in violence, property damage and subsequent arrests,” the bulletin reads.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Protesters are expected to gather Thursday evening at the White House as part of a national “Day of Rage” over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teen earlier this month in Missouri. The planned rally is among dozens around the nation organized by the group Anonymous, which is demanding the “immediate arrest and prosecution” of officer Darren Wilson. Wilson has been identified as the officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, touching off violent protests in the streets of Ferguson, Mo. “We call upon the citizens of the United States to collectively gather in support for...

    Abraham Lincoln rightly denounced the “mobocratic spirit.” James Madison considered it the sa- cred duty of government to protect property rights from the violent whims of the mob: “That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest.” Lincoln and Madison would not have looked kindly upon the pro-redistributionist political street theater under way in urine- and garbage-saturated urban parks across the nation.

    Protesters who have been camping out in Manhattan's Financial District say their movement has grown and become more organized, and they have no intention of stopping as they move into their third week, following the second weekend in a row of mass arrests. The Occupy Wall Street demonstration started out small last month, with less than a dozen college students spending days and nights in Zuccotti Park, a private plaza off Broadway. It has grown sizably, however, both in New York City and elsewhere as people in other communities across the country display their solidarity in similar protests. The event...

    Politics: The hippie horde attempting to mob and "occupy" Wall Street this week has a method to its madness. It's all about getting President Obama re-elected by employing classic Alinskyite tactics. At first glance, the latest protests staged by left-wing rent-a-mobs in New York, Washington, Los Angeles and elsewhere don't look terribly different from the World Trade Organization and global debt-amnesty spectaculars of a decade ago. Radicals swarm against some hated totem, chant, break a few Starbucks windows and leave scads of garbage for someone else to clean up. But the "Occupy Wall Street" mob that shut down the Brooklyn...

    Protesters fed up with Wall Street's practices and influence woke up Monday to their third morning of camping outside Los Angeles City Hall. Some of the approximately 100 activists planned to head across the street to join the throng outside the courthouse where Michael Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, is on trial. Members of Occupy Los Angeles, as their group is called, said they hoped to attract more media attention to their cause, which draws its inspiration from the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York.

As I noted yesterday, “The plan is to protest in state capitals and major cities across the nation, but the focus of the revolution will be in New York, where a hoped-for 20,000 anti-capitalists will ‘occupy’ Wall Street.” I dutifully sent my operatives out to cover what were to be three of the largest Day of Rage protests — in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles — so humanity would have a...

    Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Manhattan's financial district on Saturday in a largely peaceful protest aimed at drawing attention to the role powerful financial interests played in wreaking havoc on America's economy. Modeled on the "Arab Spring" uprisings that swept through Egypt, Tunisia, Syria and other countries this year, Occupy Wall Street is a "leaderless resistance movement" orchestrated through Twitter, Facebook and other social media tools. The Twitter hashtag #OccupyWallStreet lit up Saturday with coordination messages and solidarity tweets.

They’re bringing tents, sleeping bags, yoga instructors, face paint — and at some point, they’ll get around to deciding what their “one demand” is: On Saturday thousands of us will occupy Wall Street.

But is Bloomberg actually encouraging, rather than predicting, disruptive behavior on the eve of the US Days of Rage protest led by former SEIU official Stephen Lerner? Surely the mayor is aware of Lerner’s plan and background. The US Days of Rage is scheduled as a “nonviolent” protest outside the JP Morgan Chase tomorrow, Saturday, September 17. It has been organized by Lerner, a far leftist, to bring down Wall Street and the banks and ultimately collapse the economic system...

A US Day of Rage is the title given to a day of ostensibly “non-violent” civil disobedience orchestrated by a group of radicals — that reportedly include SEIU’s Stephen Lerner and ACORN founder Wade Rathke (who, coincidentally, formerly served as president of SEIU’s local New Orleans branch) — targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism.

    The riots that hit London and other English cities last week have the potential to spread beyond the British Isles. Class rage isn’t unique to England; in fact, it represents part of a growing global class chasm that threatens to undermine capitalism itself. The hardening of class divisions has been building for a generation, first in the West but increasingly in fast-developing countries such as China. The growing chasm between the classes has its roots in globalization, which has taken jobs from blue-collar and now even white-collar employees; technology, which has allowed the fleetest and richest companies and individuals to...

That is a Wall Street which has already been damaged by the Cloward-Piven orchestrated mortgage meltdown and stemming from that was assailed by protorevolutionary Obama-Peloisi-Reid government, which brought boa constrictor regulation. Dodd-Frank came as “reform” very tough on small institutions, but with loopholes wide enough to shelter Brinks...

    Mrs. MindBender and I keep a secure home; passive IR lights, alarm, long weapons in closet, hand guns close, planning, drills, etc. Due to worldwide "problems," we have gone to more lights on, long weapons next to bed, and taking the Glock 23s with extra mags with us whenever out of home 20. Anyone else?

    I just noticed on Twitter and Facebook that the Left is calling for a US Day of Rage on September 17th. The Twitter #s are: #USDOR, #occupywallstreet, #revolution Facebook: Occupy Wall St. or US Day of Rage They invite people to occupy Wall Street and DC and State Capitals. Publius is Very Unhappy! Bring your tents! Wall Street belongs to us! Demand the the top 2% pay their fair share! Lots of tweets but the Facebook pages are low volume. In addition, there is a group of Muslim activists that are pushing this and in England for the rioters to...

    Hundreds of protesters showed up outside Villa Park's city hall Tuesday to take a stand against a councilwoman whose anti-Muslim statements have gone viral. They spilled out from the council's chambers, holding American Flags and signs saying, "I am a Muslim, I am not a terrorist," referencing statements that Villa Park City Councilwoman Deborah Pauly made at a demonstration in February outside an event held by the Islamic Circle of North American Relief.

    The price of oil is shaping up to be the number one economic story of 2011, and right now the eyes of the investing world are closely watching the developing situation in Saudi Arabia. All of the other recent Middle East revolutions have been organized on the Internet, and now all over Facebook and Twitter there are calls for a "Day of Rage" in Saudi Arabia on March 11. The Saudi monarchy is attempting to head off any protests by promising to give $37 billion in "benefits" to the people and by publicly proclaiming that all political demonstrations are specifically...

    Leading intellectuals in Saudi Arabia have warned that grand financial gestures are no substitute for meaningful political reform, after King Abdullah unveiled a $36bn (£22bn) social welfare package in advance of planned anti-government protests next month. In a statement released on Thursday, a group of Saudi scholars called on the royal family to learn from recent uprisings in the Gulf and North Africa and to start listening to the voices of the kingdom's disenfranchised young people, some of whom are planning a "day of rage" on 11 March. Several Islamic thinkers, as well as a female academic and a poet,...

    Saying that Muammar Gadhafi “has lost the confidence of his people,” (ya think?) the White House announced “sweeping unilateral sanctions” against the dictator’s regime today. Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney explained that the following “crippling measures” will go into effect “more or less” immediately: Gadhafi must refrain from blaming the United States and al Qaeda for the Libyan uprising IN THE SAME SENTENCE. Beginning immediately, the colonel must only accuse one or the other at a time. Carney explained that since left-wing pundits have started to refer to Obama as an “Arabist,” the continued linkage of America and al Qaeda...

    Columnist Charles Krauthammer recommends you circle the date March 11 on your calendars. That's the day, per Facebook, that organizers are hoping to start their own revolution in the Kingdom. Via The Daily Caller: “The big one is March 11,” Krauthammer said. “There’s a Facebook call in Saudi Arabia for a day of rage all over Saudi Arabia on March 11. Now, the Saudis have really good intelligence. They are tough. They’re ruthless and they’re effective. There isn’t a lot of anti-government activity in Saudi Arabia.”

    Imagine what you would have thought when you were learning about government in grade school if the teacher had explained, “if a bill is brought before the Senate and your side doesn’t have enough votes to win…the correct thing to do is sneak out of town so that a vote cannot be held.” As Wisconsin Republicans tried to begin Senate business Thursday, observers in the gallery screamed “Freedom! Democracy! Unions!” Opponents cheered when a legislative leader announced there were not enough Senators present to proceed. Democracy in action? Hardly. More like mob mentality rules. Some on the left glowingly compared...
