  • Evil Clowns and Radical Ringmasters of the Anti-Capitalist Revolution in Denver

    11/04/2011 8:25:11 PM PDT · by ventanax5 · 3 replies
    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...

    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.
  • Sen. Hatch Seeks Answers from NLRB's Becker on SEIU Manual

    National Legal & Policy Center ^ | October 27, 2011 | Carl Horowitz
    It's almost given that a Democratic member of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has at least some background as a union lawyer. Craig Becker, who long had been associate general counsel for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) before obtaining a recess appointment to the board by President Obama in March 2010 following a Senate GOP filibuster, fits the pattern. But he also may have gone that extra mile, helping to prepare an SEIU manual on how to intimidate employers. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, wants to know more. On September 12, Hatch wrote a letter to Becker asking...

    <p>This “occupier” in Dayton, Ohio, is a typical lefty in his unfocused rage, his inarticulateness, and his hatred for everything that most people consider normal. The video was shot for Breitbart TV.</p> <p>I think that on balance, the “occupy” movement has been a good thing. It has given Americans a close-up look at modern liberalism. These degenerates are endorsed by Barack Obama and the Democratic Party. That tells you everything you need to know.</p>

    American Thinker ^ | October 21, 2011 | Brad Lips
    Obama won the 2008 election by default, but believed he won with a mandate to implement progressive dreams. In pursuing an aggressively leftist agenda, he has done these United States a profound service; he has clarified the fundamental ideological battle at the heart of all politics -- statism vs. individualism -- and dramatized the results that flow from such statist public policies. As a result, the American people are angrier than ever with politicians of both parties. As I say, this is a very positive development. More Americans are focused on issues of Constitutional principle than ever before. They have...

    (CNSNews.com) - During the House floor debate on the Protect Life Act last week, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D- Texas) defended abortion as a “needed action” and referred to the heartbeat of a fetus as a “sound”. Voicing her opposition to the measure on Thursday, Jackson Lee referenced a previous Texas law, “Just as the courts ruled unconstitutional and upheld the provision of the Texas law that required a doctor to talk first to a woman seeking an abortion and to allow or force them both to listen, uh, to sounds that, uh, might discourage this needed action, this is...
  • The battle of Wall Street: Violence erupts as police clash with protesters

    Violence erupted on Wall Street this morning with hundreds of jubilant protesters clashing with police as they march - jumping over barriers, pushing over police scooters and blocking traffic. Fifteen protesters have already been arrested in New York today after they got into fights with police officers after a planned 'eviction' was postponed following a last-minute standoff with authorities. Park owners - backed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg - put off the scheduled clean-up.

    The New American ^ | 10/10/2011 | Michael Tennant
    “When it comes to foreign policy, if you like George W. Bush and Barack Obama, you’ll love Mitt Romney.” That was the unspoken theme of a speech the former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican presidential contender delivered Friday at the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. Inveighing against “crawl[ing] into an isolationist shell,” Romney offered instead a program of hyper-interventionism in which no problem anywhere in the world is too small or remote for Washington’s involvement. Romney pledged to “devote [himself] to an American Century” in which “America has the strongest economy and the strongest military in the world.” Romney issued...

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KTLA) -- Police converged on a crowd of protesters outside a downtown Bank of America branch. The participants in the protest organized by the Refund California campaign marched into the bank and tried to cash a check for $673 billion. It was an over-sized check made out to the "people of California," LAPD Lt. Paul Vernon said.

    Protesters camped out on the lawn outside City Hall said Thursday that — rain or shine — Los Angeles officials are starting to show signs of support for the movement that has spawned demonstrations in multiple U.S. cities. An estimated 400 people are spending their sixth day on the streets of downtown voicing their frustration over the direction of the U.S. economy, jobs, and health care. The group now believes they may be able to stay on the lawn permanently and that sentiment in City Hall for their platform could be growing. At least one official is expressing support for...

    Billionaire investor George Soros said he sympathizes with the protesters who have camped out near Wall Street in New York and inspired similar anti-corporate demonstrations in other major cities across the United S While announcing a $40-million aid pledge at the United Nations for rural African development, Soros told media that he understood the protesters’ rage over big government bailout for banks "Actually I can understand their [protesters] sentiment, frankly," he said. "And at the same time the decision not to inject capital into the banks, but to effectively relieve them of their bad assets and then allow them to...

    Bloomberg's unusually alarmist pronouncement came as President Obama has been pressuring reluctant Republicans to pass his proposed job creation plan.... ...Bloomberg gave Obama kudos for coming up with a jobs plan. "At least he's got some ideas on the table, whether you like those or not," he said. "Now everybody's got to sit down and say we're actually gonna do something and you have to do something on both the revenue and the expense side."

    In a trend that continues to worsen, more Illinoisans found themselves unemployed in the month of July. Illinois lost more jobs during the month of July than any other state in the nation, according to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report. After losing 7,200 jobs in June, Illinois lost an additional 24,900 non-farm payroll jobs in July. The report also said Illinois’s unemployment rate climbed to 9.5 percent. This marks the third consecutive month of increases in the unemployment rate. Illinois started to create jobs as the national economy began to recover. But just when Illinois’s economy seemed...

    Part I of how the Left doesn't get the Tea Party here Stage 6 - AngerEven the Republican establishment has shown its distaste for the Tea Party, as seen in Barbara Bush's jab at Sarah Palin and Karl Rove's post-primary meltdown on Fox News after Christine O'Donnell defeated Mike Castle in the Delaware Republican primary. I do have to give some credit to the former first lady - it is rare to hear the political class showing such honesty of opinion when discussing a member of their own party. But she was looking in the wrong direction, more on...

    Dear xxxxx, The political balance of power was decided last night by just a few thousand votes. We were just two thousand votes from a political earthquake, but the fact remains that we gained ground, they lost it. Republicans held on to their majority -- barely -- by cashing in on their massive corporate support and the unlimited dollars which flowed from that support in the post-Citizens United era. But we changed the game and seized momentum heading into the next battles. This David vs. Goliath fight, in which underdog progressives successfully took down two Goliaths and came incredibly close...

    Last year 876,020 people attended the Wisconsin State Fair to see children show the animals they care for, try various foods on a stick, play carnival games, enjoy music and celebrate the last few days of summer. This year five dozen protesters chose to disrupt the normally placid Wisconsin State Fair grand opening with chants; at least one of them shouted an epithet commonly associated with political assassination. The MacIver News Service’s cameras were there when a throng of about 60 protesters disrupted the opening ceremonies, shouting down Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker during his brief speech. Walker was one of...
