    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.Brown was shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9.

  • The Chicago Seven Conspiracy Trial, Anti-Riot Act

    08/20/2014 4:53:02 PM PDT · by Oldeconomybuyer · 6 replies
    The Chicago conspiracy trial defendants were the first individuals prosecuted under the anti-riot provisions that Congress incorporated in the Civil Rights Act of 1968. The U.S. House of Representatives in 1967 overwhelmingly passed a version of the anti-riot provision in response to the urban riots of that summer and assertions from some members of Congress that African-American political activists had instigated the violence. The Senate included the provision in an open housing bill, and although President Johnson and Attorney General Ramsey Clark did not support the anti-riot provision, the administration accepted it to secure passage of the civil rights measure....

    A Chicago police officer suffered a stab wound to the leg, Sunday, and three others were injured during a day of protests around the NATO summit. Chicago police Supt. Garry McCarthy did not know what was used to stab the officer and became emotional when discussing the crowd with which his officers dealt. "If you think it's easy to ask people to do what they did, it's not," he said, pausing to gain his composure. "Asking people to put themselves in harm's way, knowing that they're going to get assaulted, and to be able to stand there and take it,...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The loss of their camp at Zuccotti Park doesn’t seem to be slowing down the Occupy Wall Street movement as protesters are calling for “a national day of direct action” on Thursday. It all starts with a rally in Liberty Square starting at 7 a.m. to “put an end to Wall Street’s reign of terror.” They plan on gathering at 16 subways stations around New York City to take their message to the trains. Finally, they say tens of thousands of protesters will end the day in Foley Square followed by a march to the Brooklyn...

    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...

    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...

    There are reports out of Washington, D.C., this week that the Obama administration is in a regular tizzy about the possibility that Israel will strike Iran's nuclear facilities without U.S. help or permission. According to a senior State Department official, the Obama administration is so worried that Israel will go it alone that they are finally placing pressure on China and Russia to sanction Iran more strictly. Such pressure will accomplish precisely nothing, just as it has since the ascendancy of the ayatollahs. Iran does not care about economic pressure. As a fascist religious state, their concern is strictly with...

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.

    Civil unrest is President Barack Obama's crutch, his comfort zone, and his trump card. That's why he has encouraged the "Occupy Wall Street" protest and its progeny across the country, despite significant political dangers to him for doing so. Closer looks at Obama's career roots and at the protesters' behaviors help explain both why the protests are worrisome developments and why the president actually likes them. First, it helps to understand just how radical most of these protesters are -- and just how obscene. Clearly, they are mostly socialist or communist in orientation. And reports are rampant about the lewdness,...

Do you suppose if a rape claim was made against a tea partier that it would receive more attention?It's gotten so bad in Baltimore that organizers are discouraging alleged victims from going to the police (maybe they should go to Sheriff Biden).Meanwhile,...

The movement has $435,000 - $85,000 of it donated in person at the Manhattan park that's become the epicenter of the global "anti-greed" protests and the remainder from online credit-card donations, said Darrell Prince, an activist using his business background to keep track of the daily donations.

    What's there to say about Occupy Wall Street? The answer isn't so simple. Some complain about taxpayer bailouts of businesses. Good for them. In a true free market, failing firms would go out of business. They couldn't turn to Washington for help. But many protesters say they're against capitalism. Now things get confusing. What do they mean? If by "capitalism" they mean crony capitalism (let's call it crapitalism), a system in which favored business interests are supported by government, I'm against that, too. But if they mean the free market, then they are fools. When allowed to work, the market...

    Anti-Wall Street protesters say the rich are getting richer while average Americans suffer, but the group that started it all may have benefited indirectly from the largesse of one of the world's richest men. There has been much speculation over who is financing the disparate protest, which has spread to cities across America and lasted nearly four weeks. One name that keeps coming up is investor George Soros, who in September debuted in the top 10 list of wealthiest Americans. Conservative critics contend the movement is a Trojan horse for a secret Soros agenda. Soros and the protesters deny any...

    The clueless media continues to try and paint the dopes protesting on Wall Street as some sort of heroic pillars of society who must be glorified for their bravery. The reality is far less appealing – communist hippies who hate everything about America and want to fundamentally transform it. How is it that the Tea Parties were ruthlessly scrutinized for their signs yet no one is concerned about the dangerous clashes and confrontations these radicals are having with police? “I obviously believe that my ideas are persuasive enough and beneficial enough to society that people should subscribe to them at...

    Barack Obama seen nodding in approval. FRANCES FOX PIVEN: “I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is...

    The radicals who are pushing the “Days of Rage” and “Occupy Wall Street” protests are blossoming in other venues. Most of them fit the definition of “useful idiots,” but they’re too ignorant a lot to even recognize that they’re being used. This whole movement is an astro-turf operation being put on by the socialist and communist front in this country. Their leadership has seen the hand-writing on the wall, as the vast bulk of the country is unhappy with the Marxist reflexes of President Obama. What they’re attempting now is to complete the revolution, and with each passing day, the...

    As I’ve watched the video footage of protesters attempting to “Occupy Wall Street” and, now, “Occupy Boston,” I’ve been struck again and again by this realization: They’re my age. Maybe not all of them — but many of them. So excuse me if I find it hard not to dismiss the movement as born of inexperience and misguided idealism. The romantic impulse to be an outcast, an individual facing outstanding and institutionalized obstacles is one I have to tamp down in myself sometimes; I think it comes with the territory of being in your 20s. Most of the protesters seem...

    Questions that no one in the media including our own won't ask the demonstrators. Add your own. How will you feed me? Will everything be free? What rights will I have under your new utopia? Will you give me job?

    Saturday, marked the second week of the #OccupyWallSt protests. With the endorsements of union bosses now firmly in their back pockets, protesters in New York celebrated the anniversary of their campout in a New York City park by shutting down the Brooklyn Bridge. This, of course, led to the NYPD to arrest many of the—more than 700, according to the New York Times. In a tense showdown above the East River, the police arrested more than 700 demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street protests who took to the roadway as they tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday afternoon....

    "American Dream Movement" ^ | Oct 1, 2011 | Van Jones
    Wall Street has long been the home of the biggest threat to American Democracy [from the viewpoint of communists of course -ETL]. Now it has become home to what may be our best hope for rescuing it. [snip] We call ourselves the American Dream Movement [they should call themselves 'The American Nightmare Movement' -ETL]. We engaged 130,000 people to crowd-source our own jobs agenda — the Contract for the American Dream. In August, tens of thousands demonstrated for jobs in rallies across the nation. Next week in DC, we host our first national gathering: the Take Back The American Dream...

    The latest anti-business viral video burning up the liberal blogosphere today seems heart-wrenching… that is, until you do your homework. Robert Stephens graduated from Carleton College (average cost: $42,942/year) in 2010 and now studies law at The George Washington University Law School (average cost: $70,449/year). His father has a Ph.D. and two master’s degrees; his mother also has a master’s degree. Only in America could a kid have been blessed with so much… and only in America could he still claim to be a victim. America’s capitalist society has apparently leveled a grave injustice against his family and Robert will...
