    How can you say that, who gave you the power to decree who is and who isn't part of the 99%? He's a national socialist too boot, a neo-nazi. All the socialist are attracted to #ows, why do you suppose that is?


    Here as some more news worthy updates....

    The evidence is astounding from day ONE. At some point you have to come to terms that socialism is certainly a core value from the roots of this movement. Albeit not everyone supports it, and clearly many do not understand socialism but is a very strong essence of the movement.

    I mean, theres hundreds of stories and video that show socialism and anti-sematic signs and rants. There come a point where you can no longer say "that doesn't represent us", it come from the movement.

    Another update: David Duke is now with #ows.

    This is revolution, a worldwide thing..... what exactly does that mean?

    Occupy Madison loses permit

    City officials temporarily denied Occupy Madison a new street use permit Wednesday after protesters violated public health and safety conditions and failed to follow the correct processes to renew or amend a permit.

    The permit, which expired Wednesday at noon, required Occupy Madison protesters to relocate from their current space at 30 West Mifflin Street, also called 30 on the Square.

    A neighboring hotel's staff alleged voiced concerns about having to recently escort hotel employees to and from bus stops late at night due to inappropriate behavior, such as public masturbation, from street protesters.


    "[The protest] is indeed a work in progress," Streeter said. "We will continue to address issues as they come up."

    A Message to All Police Officers From Occupy Wall Street

    Mike Ruppert addresses those police officers who have begun a campaign of violent and brutal attacks at some of the Occupy Wall Street protesters around the country, and around the world.

    In this video, Mike mentions the lecture he gave in 2001 at Portland State University. It was while he was getting ready to speak that I introduced myself to him, and told him that I would do anything I could to help him. As you will understand if you take the time to watch this entire video, and pay attention to what he says, I have tremendous respect for him. I hope that many people spread this video around.

    Cops Mock Poor People, Calls Prosecutors "Pieces Of S--t," Claim Ticket-Fixing Is Just The Way It Is: Gothamist: New York City News

    As 16 NYPD officers were arraigned at a Bronx courthouse yesterday to face charges related to the department's massive ticket-fixing probe, around 500 off-duty police officers, including paralyzed NYPD officer Steven McDonald, showed up to voice their support for "professional privilege." According to the Times, the officers shoved away television cameras and jeered at people receiving public assistance at a benefits center across the street. According to the Daily News, some of those assembled shouted "you piece of sh*t!" at prosecutors. Ahh, the sweet sounds of CPR.

    While many off-duty officers and PBA members held signs that bore slogans of, "It's a Courtesy Not a Crime," ticket-fixing charges weren't the only ones aired in court: grand larceny, drug charges and unrelated corruption were also found in the probe. Four of the policemen charged helped a man escape assault charges. Flatscreen TV-loving Jose Ramos, who is at the center of the probe and was the only cop charged who remained in jail on $500,000 bond, was caught on a wiretap saying, "I stopped caring about the law a long time ago."

    When some Bronx residents, who were waiting in line for government assistance next door, shouted "Fix our tickets!" the officers and supporters responded with a ugly chant of "E.B.T." "To be ridiculing people in the welfare line across the street doesn't endear you to the public eye," an unnamed official said.

    "It's hard to see an upside in the way the anger was expressed, especially in Bronx County, where you already have a hard row to hoe in terms of building rapport with the community," a professor of police studies at John Jay College tells the paper. "The Police Department is a very angry work force, and that is something that should concern people, because it translates into hostile interactions with people." Indeed, it's been recently reported that morale in the NYPD is at rock-bottom due to a litany of scandals.

    Daily News columnist Joanna Molloy called the incident yesteday "a disgrace," writing that it was "ridiculous" to refer to ticket-fixing as a "courtesy" because "the cops who erased parking tickets did so mostly for their girlfriends, their cousins and their buddies, leaving the rest of us to pay up." She continues: "When 16 cops act as if they are above the law—and 500 more turn up to support them…they ruin it for the rest of the 35,000 cops on the force."

    Mayor Bloomberg took the same tact in his radio broadcast on Friday, saying "it's a tiny percentage of the people" who serve in the NYPD that were indicted. Interestingly enough, even that "tiny" group of people got something that even eluded Dominique Strauss-Kahn: they got their perp walk "fixed," and were loaded into black vans, away from the media's lenses.

    Here's breakdown of where our donations come from. (SPOILER-Not much from 1%'ers...)… #ows

    ‘1%’ proving Occupy Wall Street protesters right when it comes to donations - NY Daily News

    When it comes to Occupy Wall Street donations, the "one percent" are proving the protesters 100% right.

    People with annual earnings of a quarter-million dollars or more donated just 1.39% of the $325,000 given nationally to the grass roots movement, according to figures from online fund-raiser WePay.

    The self-proclaimed "99 percent" living in parks and plazas from coast to coast have received most of their financial support from the middle class since the first Occupy-affiliated account opened Aug. 5.

    People earning between $35,000 and $100,000 were most likely to redistribute their wealth, providing nearly 60% of the donations, WePay figures show.

    "The middle class is really giving the bulk of the money," said WePay CEO Bill Clerico, who left his job as an investment banker to start the company in 2008. "In the last 30 days, donations have really snowballed as more movements have joined Occupy Wall Street."

    Occupy Denver tension escalates dramatically |

    The simmering tension near the Colorado Capitol escalated dramatically Saturday with more than a dozen arrests, reports of skirmishes between police and protesters and authorities firing rounds of pellets filled with pepper spray at supporters of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

    Denver police spokesman Matt Murray said 15 people were arrested in the evening confrontation, where authorities were moving to prevent protesters from setting up tents in the park, which are illegal. Officials say the demonstrators had been warned several times that the tents would not be allowed and those who attempted to stop police from dismantling the camp gear were arrested. Protesters have been staying in the park for weeks, but tents have repeatedly been removed.



    The police 'attacked' (only real word for it) when part of the crowd tried to put up tents police came roaring in on motorcycles. There was no baiting by the crowd and the march was full of ppl from all ages, ethnicity and backgrounds. The whole thing popped off when a cop ran over a guy on a motorcycle (just rammed into him). the guy got upset and pushed the back of the guys motorcycle. HE DID NOT KNOCK THE BIKE OVER. Next thing I know four swat team members (including the cop on the bike, who dropped the bike and went after the guy) went after this kid and beat the shit out of him. This happened 5 feet from where I was. I was sobbing and yelling for them to stop. The cops fired rubber bullets AND pepper spray at random into the crowd. Mind there were PEACEFUL ppl of all ages, including a 5 year old boy I saw with tears running down there face. I went to the rally with no expectations or motivations outside of curiosity. To be perfectly honest, part of me thought that something, anything must have happened in Oakland, NYC, etc to bring about such actions by police. Today, that changed. The DPD acted like brutes. They fired rubber bullets into a tree (at least 20 rounds) because a guy up there filming said-quite nicely, natch- "I don't want to come down." This is our America. We're all fucked.

    34 minutes ago

    At Occupy Wall Street central, a rift is growing between east and west sides of the plaza - NY Daily News

    The “model” civilization that’s sprung up at Zuccotti is itself increasingly divided between the stakeholders in the nascent movement who feel invested in the emerging economic, social and cultural causes of “the 99%,” and hangers-on, including a fast-growing contingent of lawbreakers and lowlifes, many of whom seem to have come to Zuccotti in the last week with the cynical encouragement of the NYPD.

    Daily Kos: Rat Bastids: Credit Company Cyber-squatters Capitalizing on OWS (Updated)

    I was looking online for an Occupy movement in my city, and was for a moment delighted to see there was already a website for it with an explicitly OWS-related domain name. Unfortunately, when I clicked on the website, I was led to a very deceptive link farm that has "Occupy-ish" overtones if one were just scanning it briefly (it includes the slogan "We are the 99%" in the title bar, so don't be deceived just looking at the Google page). The actual content, however, is all ads for credit services and real estate companies. And it isn't just my city, but numerous cities that have been preemptively hijacked in this fashion. If you are unaware of an Occupy movement in your city, you might consider Googling "Occupy (insert city name)" to see whether cyber-squatters are parasiting off the movement to drive traffic into such link farms. And even if there is an active movement underway, these assholes are probably still using it to pimp credit services.


    ...we have the following information about the squatter company: NameMedia, Inc. of Waltham, MA. The hosting service that hosts the sites is Ardennes Technologies...

    Official refuses Tennessee governor’s orders to break up ‘Occupy Nashville’ | The Raw Story

    Just one week after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) saw his order to push an “Occupy” protest out of a public park at night, Tennessee’s governor is experiencing a similar problem.

    Gov. Bill Haslam (R) has twice given the order to crackdown on protesters at “Occupy Nashville,” only to see it denied by judicial commissioner Tom Nelson. In Tennessee, a judicial commissioner has the authority to determine whether crimes have been committed.

    “The magistrate’s position is sort of a safety valve to prevent overzealous officers from putting people in jail for no reason,” Nashville attorney Jim Todd said to the Associated Press.

    Nelson ordered the release of 29 protesters arrested last Thursday because “the state had not given the protesters adequate notice that it was changing the rules.”

    Hartmann: 1% - It's not about your bank account but your patriotism

    The bankster 1% in Chicago had a little message they wanted to get out to the 99% movement camped out in the streets below. So someone at the Chicago Board of Trade poured leaflets out of the window - to rain down on the demonstrators below. The leaflets read "We are Wall Street, it is our jobs to make money...Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you're only going to hurt yourselves. What's going to happen when we can't find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We're going to take yours."

    As we all know today - that's not a's a promise - Wall Street has never had a problem taking what's not theirs. Whether it was the trillions they took from the economy when they ran their housing bubble scheme - or the trillions more they took from the taxpayers when they demanded a bailout - Wall Street just churns other people's money and skims their vig off the top. And they've been doing it in a pretty outrageous way - what once was considered both an immoral and even illegal way - for the 30 years since Reagan stopped enforcing the Sherman Anti-Trust act, leading to an explosion on Wall Street of what was then called M&A or Mergers and Acquisitions business.
