    St. Petersburg sees first RNC-related arrests after men found on downtown rooftop with weaponsBy Kameel Stanley, Times Staff Writer Tampa Bay Times In Print: Sunday, August 26, 2012 ST. PETERSBURG — Two suspected protesters were arrested after they were found playing with a BB gun atop a downtown parking garage, authorities said. **SNIP** They also found several items indicating the people were protesters, including antigovernment T-shirts and a backpack stuffed with a large machete, a pocketknife, tin snips and a pry tool, Puetz said. The backpack belonged to Trevor Swanson, 19, of St. Petersburg, who is prohibited from having weapons...

    St. Petersburg - Tampa Bay Times ^ | August 25, 2012 | John Woodrow Cox
    ...... Soon, tens of thousands of Republicans will descend upon Tampa Bay, but this area's Democrats say they aren't going anywhere. Their schedules are packed: protests, rallies, vigils, press conferences, a visit from the vice president and even a secret-but-not-so-secret "counter-convention." "We don't want to ruin the convention for delegates," said Ella Coffee of the Hillsborough County Democratic Party, which opened its Tampa campaign office Thursday night. "We just want to be able to have a conversation." Preparation for that conversation starts today with a protest training session in Tampa. The Code Pink-organized gathering, which many area Democrats are expected...

  • Occupy Admits Its Real Goal: Communism

    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...
  • FRC Shooting Latest Chapter In The Left’s Love Affair With Violence

    The FRC shooting is the latest chapter in the blood-drenched history of the left — from the French Revolution to Occupy Wall Street. This is the way the left does business — with guillotines, gulags and gas chambers, with bombs, bullets, purges, planned famines and demonizing opponents as a prelude to their slaughter. In 2009, James Pouillon was shot to death while holding a pro-life sign by a supporter of choice. The same year, black Tea Party activist Kenneth Glandney was beaten so badly by SEIU thugs that he had to be hospitalized. In 2010, heavily armed eco-terrorist James J....

    While the media and Democratic establishment continue to laud the #Occupy movement, they ignore the reality of what is going on on the ground — Occupy Wall Street is an extremely small, fractured and ineffective social experiment that is unable to even provide safety for the young, female protesters that it tries to attract. In a chaotic transcript from the January 7 New York General Assembly, it was revealed that one assailant was allegedly responsible for six rapes. [Snip] In the posted minutes, anti-rape activist Nan Terrie told the group... The proposal that I brought was an incident that happened...

    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...

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.

Studies have shown that in every recent interval of American history, and certainly from 1980 to the present, living standards and...

    A Massachusetts group has submitted thousands of petition signatures in support of a non-binding public policy question asserting that corporations are not entitled to the same rights as people on the November ballot. The Democracy Amendment Coalition of Massachusetts announced Tuesday that it has submitted 20,000 signatures from registered voters to Secretary of State William Galvin’s office. The ballot question would instruct Massachusetts lawmakers to pass a resolution asking Congress to propose a Constitutional amendment regarding the rights of corporations and placing limits on political contributions and spending. If approved by Galvin’s office, voters in six state Senate districts and...

    "Violence like the massacre that happened in Aurora, Colo., today is a staple of action films, including Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. A similar, now haunting, scene unfurls in "The Dark Knight Rises" when a masked villain leads a violent gang into a packed football stadium and deploys guns and explosives on the unsuspecting crowd. While there has been no indication as to the motives of James Holmes, the suspected 24-year-old shooter who is now in custody, new evidence suggests that he was inspired by the Batman series of comic books and/or movies. Law enforcement sources confirmed to ABC News that...
