Terrorist Identification Chart

Europeans are baffled by America's hypocrisy. Democracy is dead. The moment any citizen questions its leaders, they are labeled terrorists. Americans need to study German history. The events of the last decade mirrored Hitler's rise to power in the 1930s.

This video is what the government uses to identify terrorists in America.

The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy

The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy
by Naomi Wolf makes the claim that the crackdown on the Occupy movement is coordinated by the Department of Homeland Security. If you have time, please read the entire article. Here is an excerpt:
"I noticed that rightwing pundits and politicians on the TV shows on which I was appearing were all on-message against OWS. Journalist Chris Hayes reported on a leaked memo that revealed lobbyists vying for an $850,000 contract to smear Occupy. Message coordination of this kind is impossible without a full-court press at the top. This was clearly not simply a case of a freaked-out mayors', city-by-city municipal overreaction against mess in the parks and cranky campers. As the puzzle pieces fit together, they began to show coordination against OWS at the highest national levels."

Read the whole article here.

What are the implications if the top levels of government are cracking down on America's right to protest peacefully?

UPDATE: This article attacks and tries to discredit Naomi Wolf's article. Who is right?

Occupy Wall St - The Revolution Is Love

Yeah, I know it sounds a little hippy-dippy. But give this video a chance - the speaker articulates his idea very well. Its not about us vs them or defeating the 1%...its about creating a better system and a new world for all of us.

Insider Trading Legal for U.S. Congress

More proof those snake oil salesmen in DC area bunch of slithery scumbags -- they are not bound to securities fraud and can commit insider trading without prosecution. Yes, it's true according to this revealing story from 60 Minutes...

Of course, not everyone in Congress is smart enough to make big bucks on Wall Street. To quote one of my favorite Twitter feeds Goldman Sachs Elevator aka @GSElevator...

For more information, here's an article from the Daily Beast...Ethically Challenged Congress Needs Law or Code Banning Insider Trading.

Former Police Captain Joins Occupy Wall Street; Then Gets Arrested

Since the early stages of the Occupy Wall Street, veterans from the U.S. military joined the ranks of the protest movement. Many vets marched with OWS and squatted in different camps across the country. Some of the older vets had fought in Vietnam and the first Gulf War, while a new wave of vets fresh off of tours in Iraq and Afghanistan have also joined the cause, including one pissed off a Marine, who scared the shit out of bunch of NYPD officers in Times Square.

Earlier this week, the Occupy Wall Street welcomed its first high-ranking police officer to join the ranks of the 99%. Raymond Lewis, a retired police captain from Philadelphia, was spotted in his former dress uniform carrying around a sign that read "NYPD Don't Be Wall Street Mercenaries." He also displayed another one inviting the NYPD to join the movement after they watch Inside Job (the documentary film about the 2008 financial implosion created by Wall Street bankers).

In this video, Capt. Lewis gave some wise advice to protesters. He also said that he felt bad for his fellow police officers because they are just "workers for the 1% and they don't even realize they're being exploited."

As he predicted in the original video, Capt. Lewis was arrested yesterday in Zuccotti Park during the N17 Day of Action. Here's video of his arrest...

Keith Olberman Rant: Bloomberg and OWS Raids

Keith Olberman goes off the deep end during his rant against NYC's Mayor Bloomberg. He's "all that is wrong and is stupid in the establishment in our country."

By the way, have you seen Bloomberg's mustache chart that Zero Hedge posted?

Occupy Wall Street - Zuccotti Park Raided

The Occupy Wall Street camp inside Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan was raided by NYPD early on Tuesday morning. It was an ugly scene -- the area was dubbed a "frozen Zone" and the press was kept away while riot police cleared house and locked up any protesters in their path. Josh Harkinson was the only reporter inside the "frozen zone" when things went down. Read his chilling recap of the events.

The raid on Zuccotti Park and other similar actions across Occupy camps in America appear to be a coordinated effort. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan revealed that she took part in a conference call with 18 other mayors about coordinating a nationwide crackdown on the OWS Movement.

Whispers are swirling that last night's clear out was directed in conjunction with the FBI. Meanwhile, Wonkette suggested the crackdowns were coordinated by Homeland Security.

Occupy Oakland Gets Tear Gassed by Riot Police

Yes, while you slept last night with visions of Snooki dancing around your heads, a battle raged in the streets of downtown Oakland. Police in riot gear tear gassed the crowd for a second night in a row. They also used flash grenades and some sort of "disorientation" weapon that is illegal in the United States (not that that matters).

Here's the haunting video courtesy of The SF Snitch...

CIA Ties to Occupy Wall Street?

Did a CIA think tank help organize the Occupy Wall Street revolutions? This video raises several interesting questions.

The Occupy movements are growing every day. It's a matter of time before political parties, big business interests, and rogue intelligence agencies attempt to co-opt the revolution for their own malicious purposes. Stay vigilant. Don't let Occupy Wall Street get hijacked. It's a revolutionary movement for the people and by the people. Remember that!

U.S. Marine Scares NYPD During #OWS in NYC

Thanks to Ace Cowboy for posting this video in... Marine Sgt. to NYPD: 'Why y'all gearing up for war?'

Some chilling statements...
"These are U.S. citizens."

"These people don't have guns."

"This is not war. Why are you gearing up like it's war?"

"There's is no honor in this...what you're doing to these people."

"If you want to hurt and kill people, go to Iraq!"
Watch the dramatic confrontation here...

U.S. Marine versus 30 cops? Marine wins every time. Lesson learned. Don't fuck with an angry Marine!
