  • FBI admits no arrest warrant signed when Duane Ehmer was arrested, contrary to agent's testimony

    FBI agents admit in court papers that they had no arrest warrant when they took Duane Ehmer into custody at a checkpoint outside the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge on Jan. 27, 2016, contrary to an agent's testimony earlier this week. It wasn't until the day after Ehmer's arrest that a federal magistrate judge signed a criminal complaint against Ehmer based on an FBI agent's probable cause affidavit. Ehmer's lawyer Michele Kohler has urged the judge to suppress evidence found in what she contends was an unlawful search of Ehmer's car and horse trailer after his arrest without a warrant. ......

    Australian documentary hobbyist spontaneously visits Occupy Melbourne rally with videocamera, planning to make some casual interviews about their event. A long, eerie series of paranoid outbursts from the dirty but clearly priveleged Occupiers ensue: They want to grow the government big enough to control the lives of EVERYONE --except them. Anyone with a camera is a spy, "What is your name..? What you're doing isn't cool, I'll tell the cops, here, that you're making me feel bad..." Many of the Occupiers show the strange opinion that the cherished notion of RIGHTS is anything they like, non-rights are things they don't...

  • The Drum Circle Beats for “AmEriKaN” Climate Change

    Liberal publications around the globe celebrated climate change on Sunday by gushing over a reconvening of the same drum circle that took over Wall Street in the misshaped Occupy movement in 2011—and failed to do anything but offend ordinary Americans. “More than 400,000 people turned out for the People's Climate March in New York City on Sunday,” says the HuffPo, “just days before many of the world's leaders are expected to debate environmental action at the United Nations climate summit.” Coincidence? No. Claiming that the Sunday marchers were part of big tent that represents all of America, the New York...
  • Hamas: We Will Treat NATO Forces as 'Occupiers'

    Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s suggestion that NATO forces be deployed in the future Palestinian state is not well-received by his rivals, the Hamas rulers of Gaza. A spokesman for Hamas said Friday that the faction would regard any international military presence within a future Palestinian state as "occupation" forces, reported the Ma’an news agency. During a rally in southern Gaza, spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that any international forces stationed in “Palestine” as a result of a peace agreement with Israel would be treated the same as “the Israeli occupation.” Abu Zuhri called on Abbas to withdraw from...
  • Attention, Protestors: You're Probably Part of the 1% [$34,000 = richest 1% on a global level]

    The recent Occupy Wall Street protests have aimed their message at the income disparity between the 1% richest Americans and the rest of the country. But what happens when you expand that and look at the 1% richest of the entire world? Some really interesting numbers emerge. If there were a global Occupy Wall Street protest, people as well off as Linda Frakes might actually be the target. In America, the top 1% earn more than $380,000 per year. We are, however, among the richest nations on Earth. How much do you need to earn to be among the top...

    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,...

    San Francisco businesses whose windows were broken by “Occupy” protesters and whose subsequently boarded-up buildings were spray-painted with graffiti by local hoodlums were advised by city officials that they would be fined $500 a day if “the facilities are not put in acceptable condition within 30 days.” “Rules are rules,” said Otto Lawless, head of the City’s Zoning Enforcement Division. “I have to do my job. Can you imagine how decrepit and dilapidated our city would look if I didn’t.” Lawless said the affected businesses who feel that the police could’ve done more to protect their property in the first...
  • MoveOn’s Quest to Outlaw the Term “Illegal Immigrant” [claims its hate speech - barf]

    Just when you would think that the far Left Obama booster organization MoveOn.org could not get any more ridiculous, it sinks to ever lower levels of absurdity. The latest example involves MoveOn’s push to render the phrase “illegal aliens” or “illegal immigrants” hate speech. A video posted last week at MoveOn.org’s website charges that calling illegal immigrants “illegal” fits the definition of a hate crime and calls for the word “illegal” to be abolished when describing individuals entering the United States illegally. They would prefer using adjectives such as “undocumented” immigrants or “unauthorized” immigrants.

    Oregonlive.com ^ | 04/13/2012 | By Maxine Bernstein,
    The Portland Police Bureau is expected to end the fiscal year in the red, overspending its $169 million budget by $3.42 million. The largest drivers are nearly $2 million in Occupy Portland policing costs; more retirements (26 so far this fiscal year), bringing larger sick leave and vacation payouts; and cash payouts to officers for earned holiday compensatory time. As a result, the bureau this spring has asked for additional one-time funds to plug the budget hole.

    So much for civility. With Ed Schultz goading her on, a Dem state senator from Ohio referred to Republican elected officials as "occupiers" and urged women among other things to use their "passion" to "take out" the "right-wing occupiers." Nina Turner, the state senator in question, used language that would have caused an MSM outrage had a Republican used it to call for people to "take out" Dem "occupiers." View the video here.

    By this point, it's clear that Oakland -- or at least the city's mayor, police chief, and business and cranky old man communities -- hates itself some Occupy. The hating officially enters the criminal justice system today, when three Occupy Oakland protesters will appear in Alameda County Superior Court on charges of felony theft and hate crimes for lobbing gay slurs while allegedly stealing a wallet, according to reports.

    HEADS UP CPAC 2012 - Occupiers and Unions to Protest There Keep your powder dry at CPAC this week and be ready. From past experience, when the anarchists know there will be push back, they change their plans. In Oakland this past week the cowardly occupiers “occupied” places where they knew the police were not going to be around. Of course the police finally caught up to them and arrested 400. If anyone has a good contact with the Metro police, you might give them a heads up. And let the Marriott and Omni hotels know that they may have...
