    TAMPA, FL - While the mainstream media hasn't really been reporting that much on activities of either the Occupy Tampa group or the anarchists that are expected to show up, the Occupy Tampa folks have got their LiveStream up and going. (There have been a few reports from big media like Newsday and the NY Daily News. ) If weather gets out of hand, the Occupy Tampa website is asking for help with shelter.They also have a plea out for attorneys to help them. They wrote: "Recently we’ve dealt with an increasing amount of police harassment. On the night of...

    Not exactly the 99%: Top union leaders’ salariesAugust 23, 2012 | 11:51 am Advocating for the working man doesn’t pay too poorly, it seems. Here’s a list of the annual salaries and benefits earned by the nation’s top labor officials, according to the Labor Department. This data is based on 2011 filings: AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka – $293,750. National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel – $460,060

    This is a Special Report from the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism Republican delegates arriving in Tampa for the convention this week will likely find one thing more oppressive than the humidity: hordes of motley Occupiers, political puppeteers, Teamsters, Code Pink activists dressed as giant female body parts, open-borders extremists, vegan Marxists, and tattooed anarchists, all assembling for their quadrennial temper tantrum. One major target is the Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, and anything ever associated with him. Plans include a tent city called “Romneyville” and protests against any companies assisted by Romney’s old firm, Bain Capital. The purpose, in...

    The Left: An Occupy organizer admitted over the weekend that the goal of his protest group was to "overthrow the capitalist system and build communism." So the cat's out of the bag again on this bunch. Where is the outrage? The true agenda of the Occupy movement has been revealed — it's a totalitarian one. Billing itself as a spontaneous people's revolution and embraced by the media and Democrat political establishment, Occupy is really a destructive band of thugs whose goal is the violent demise of democracy. Speaking at a "People's Assembly" in Washington, former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689...

    Market Watch ^ | August 21, 2012 | David Weidner
    About a year ago I called Occupy Wall Street a “tea party with brains.” Today, I’m the one who needs his head examined. Occupy Wall Street, the movement critical of banks, the super rich and their influence in our politics and daily lives, has failed to live up to its promise as an important social and political force. Though its core message — that big finance and greed undermines society and corrupts our political system — is fundamentally correct, Occupy hasn’t lived up to the standard set by the tea party in its ability to turn grievance into a political...

    Former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash, now an “Occupy” movement organizer, was caught on tape Sunday revealing his political goals: overthrowing capitalism in the United States and instituting a communist government. “Progressive labor is a revolutionary communist organization,” Golash said during an Occupy DC “People’s Assembly” on August 19. “Its objective,” he added, “is to make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism.” Golash said he and his comrades are “trying to learn something from the historical revolutions of the past: the Russian revolution, the Chinese revolution, the revolutions in Cuba and...

  • Paul Ryan: Another Tea Party Victory, or Take That OWS

    08/13/2012 10:23:29 AM PDT · by Shout Bits · 3 replies
    Gov. Mitt Romney's V.P. pick, Rep. Paul Ryan, is being hailed as a bold move by the media in that Ryan is considered a reliable conservative, but there is more to it. Ryan is far from the typical politician at the national level; he is a detail oriented policy wonk. Compare that to the lovable buffoonery of the spray tanned, hair plugged, backslapping V.P. Joe Biden. Conventional wisdom is that voters do not want to hear the ugly details of a fiscal plan; details are cannon fodder for the enemy (e.g. "we have to pass the health care bill so...

    URBANA — Described as a candidate with "outstanding" personal and professional qualities, James Holmes was accepted into the University of Illinois Neuroscience Program in 2011 and was offered financial support through a combination of fellowships, teaching and research assistantships, and tuition and fee waivers, The News-Gazette has learned. However, a few weeks after his visit to the Urbana campus in the spring of 2011 and one day after he was offered admission to the highly selective graduate program, Holmes declined to accept, without elaborating on the reasons or his plans for the future, according to university documents provided to The...

    Protesters smashed a large window at President Obama's re-election campaign office in downtown Oakland late Friday night, tore down a nearby fence and vandalized cars, according to police, witnesses and video footage. Staffers and volunteers were inside the Organizing for America office at 1714 Telegraph Ave. when it was vandalized after 9 p.m., but no one was hurt, said a staffer who declined to be identified. The office is a joint effort of the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee. When the window was broken, well over 100 people had joined what began as a rally against the city's...

    One Occupy Wall Street protester was ticketed for trespassing and a fire alarm went off over the weekend at the hotel holding the American Legislative Exchange Council's 39th annual meeting in Salt Lake City, according to Salt Lake City police. Salt Lake City Police Detective Joshua Ashdown said that police were investigating how the fire alarm was pulled, but that nobody was seen doing it. Pulling a fire alarm is a misdemeanor, Ashdown said. The Occupy movement’s Salt Lake City branch had posted on its website that it wanted to disrupt the ALEC convention. The American Legislative Exchange Council works...

    BULLETIN: Harbor Boulevard at Ball Road was temporarily closed about 2:30 p.m. as more than 200 protestors made their way toward a line of police in riot gear standing and on horseback, about a half mile from the Disneyland Resort’s pedestrian entrance on Harbor. About two dozen police on horseback and about 50 police in riot gear forced the group to turn east on Ball. People could be heard yelling: “The whole world is watching.” They also yelled at police: “Why can’t we go to Disneyland? You’re protecting the city, not your people.” Watch a live Ustream by Occupy LA...
