President Obama and Occupy Wall Street are speaking the same language. Obama said, “The average income for the top one percent of Americans has risen almost seven times faster than the income of the average middle class family,” he said. “And this has happened during a period where the cost of everything from health care to college has skyrocketed.”
Wall St. gave more money to Obama and the Democratic Party and Obama along with Democrats in both houses of congress gave Wall St. huge amounts of money in return through the bailouts. Follow the money. Another fact is that even if we took 100% of the top 1%'s money it wouldn't cover the debt Obama has incured.
Just remember that it was the Tea Party that spoke out first about TARP and the bailouts. We didn't want that money going to Wall St. But we also know that it is the government controling that money and where it goes. Obama wants us to blame everyone but him what what he did. Most Americans aren't dumb. They know who is handing out the money and spending up into three generations of slave labor. Obama needs to stop trying to make Americans look at one hand so we don't notice what he is doing withy the other hand picking the private sectors earnings.
Obama is using his position to community agitate the country. We see what he is doing and we know when we are being taken for a ride. I wouldn't put it past this president to inflame and agitate even more after he loses in 2012. He will do a lot more then take all the "W" off the keyboards.
As these OWS protesters become more and more violent towards American citizens and their property it's starting to make the main stream news. I'm sure there are some legitimate protesters there. But as it gets more and more scary to be there those protesters will leave.
"It's entirely incoherent," Charles Krauthammer said of Obama's plan to pay down student loans. "I'm not sure if those savings are real, where are they? What he spoke about today was tweaking the student loan program, which he now controls. In a way, it's rather astonishing. The numbers were run by an economics correspondent today in The Atlantic magazine. And It turns out what he is offering the students is between $4.50 and $7.70 a month of relief."
It's time people stop listening to Obama's rhetoric and look deeper at his grandiose plans. One thing is for sure, there is always more to the story then Obama leads on. We have all learned our lessons from the Stimulus Bills,Jobs bill and Obamacare. What are your thoughts on this? I get the feeling Obama is trying to just buy votes with our money. The way Obama was talking it made me wonder if he even paid off his own student debts. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama doesn't come right out and say if college students vote for him they wont have to pay back their loans, health care...
Compared to the scene Tuesday evening: KCRA provides a report on Tuesday’s arrests:
A crowd of roughly 400 Occupy Oakland protesters clashed with police Tuesday evening while trying to reclaim a campsite that they had been ousted from earlier in the day. Do you think that this will backfire on the Democratic Party? Will these protests become even more violent in the future or will they calm down?
My Tax and Spending Reform Plan Individuals will have the option of paying a 20% flat-rate income tax and I'll cap spending at 18% of GDP. By RICK PERRY, Wall Street Journal - Opinion
The folks in Washington might not like to hear it, but the plain truth is the U.S. government spends too much. Taxes are too high, too complex, and too riddled with special interest loopholes. And our expensive entitlement system is unsustainable in the long run.
Without significant change quickly, our nation will go the way of some in Europe: mired in debt and unable to pay our bills. President Obama and many in Washington seem unable or unwilling to tackle these issues, either out of fear of alienating the left or because they want Americans to be dependent on big government.
Kim Strassel explains the Texas governor's tax reform plan.
On Tuesday I will announce my "Cut, Balance and Grow" plan to scrap the current tax code, lower and simplify tax rates, cut spending and balance the federal budget, reform entitlements, and grow jobs and economic opportunity.
The plan starts with giving Americans a choice between a new, flat tax rate of 20% or their current income tax rate. The new flat tax preserves mortgage interest, charitable and state and local tax exemptions for families earning less than $500,000 annually, and it increases the standard deduction to $12,500 for individuals and dependents.
This simple 20% flat tax will allow Americans to file their taxes on a postcard, saving up to $483 billion in compliance costs. By eliminating the dozens of carve-outs that make the current code so incomprehensible, we will renew incentives for entrepreneurial risk-taking and investment that creates jobs, inspires Americans to work hard and forms the foundation of a strong economy. My plan also abolishes the death tax once and for all, providing needed certainty to American family farms and small businesses.
My plan restores American competitiveness in the global marketplace and provides strong incentives for U.S.-based employers to build new factories and create thousands of jobs here at home.
Occupy Wall St. is turning out to be a bigger buffoon fest then even I thought. Even though the media isn't covering these protests the truth is coming out thanks to the world wide web. Keep emailing and Facebooking your friends the truth. I can't wait to see the Democrats run from these filthy anarchist dopes.
One thing that really does bother me is the amount of antisemitism that is growing in these protests. I hope this group of Democrats don't do anything crazy and hurt the Jews they say they hate so much.
MR. GREGORY: Well, can I raise, can I raise the big question--Jack, let me start with you--which is, at this point, does the president have to level with the American people and say, "Look, the conversation in Washington has stopped about jobs, about what government can do to somehow stimulate economic growth." We got to focus on other things. Maybe it's tax reform. But we, we can't do it at the moment. You disagreed with that earlier, saying he can do something about the economy. MR. WELCH: Oh, he can do a lot about the economy. He could look at drilling for oil. He can, by himself, can drive that posture. He could put a moratorium on regulation until we've got unemployment below a certain level. He could do it. And he could, most importantly, change the posture. Everything we do in this administration is more punitive than it is incentivized. Let me give you a perfect example. Let's take the jobs bill. They put in there Section 371. That is an ability to sue for unemployed people who are out looking for a job to sue for $300,000, for example, if they hire Andrea who has a job and don't hire me, unemployed. It's crazy. They, they give a $4,000 incentive to hire an unemployed person, then they give a $300,000 penalty if you happen to discriminate against an unemployed person. Come on, you've got to get a positive framework.
It turns out that Obama's jobs bill is crazy. If you do more of the same failed policies and expect different results that's as crazy as it gets. What do you think?
Two Occupy Boston members have been arrested on drug charges, Boston police said yesterday.
Bostonians Isaac Bell, 34, and Charlene Dumont, 31, were both charged with distribution of a class A drug (heroin) and possession with intent to distribute a class A drug within 1,000 feet of a school zone, police say.
The 6-year-old child who was living with them in a tent is now staying with family members, police said.
WARNING: EXTREMELY EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
This is the Occupy Wall St. that the media wont show.
According to the YT video this is a UMASS professor who is explaining his socialist dream of America to these hungry OWS protesters, encouraging them to overthrow capitalism and telling them that the only obstacle is the minority of the one percent:
Is this what Obama and the Democratic Party stand with?
Laura Ingraham and Bill O'Reilly discuss the hypocrisies of the Occupy Wall Street Protests. Ingraham calls it 'deep anti-americanism' and says, "They've been itching for a fight ever since I think the Tea Party became more powerful and the midterm elections came in, and Obama's just not working out very well."
Furious New York City residents sounded off at a community meeting Thursday night over the hundreds of Occupy Wall Streets encamped in Zuccotti Park.
“They are defecating on our doorsteps,” stay-at-home mom Katherine Hughes told the New York Post. “A lot of people are very frustrated. A lot of people are concerned about the safety of our kids.”
Public sex, open drug usage and nudity have been reported in the park — occupied for more than a month by anti-capitalists. Hundreds have been arrested but New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has given his blessing for the protesters to remain in the park for as long as they want.
Residents said enough is enough. Maybe the Tea Party should send a truck load of cat litter to these filthy Obamaville protests. The fact is these protests are chaotic filthy shanty towns to say the least. This isn't Woodstock out in the middle of no mans land. Anyone in their right mind would want to be anywhere near these protests. But that hasn't stoped Obama and the Democratic Party from wallowing with them. Birds of a feather do flock together, that is for sure. This unhinged group of mostly white youth has done nothing but open the eyes to who the Democratic Party have become. People are starting to get scared of these neo-Democrats or socialist democrats. There is even talk that these protesters are going to riot at both the Republican and Democratic Party conventions. The police in these two cities is training up for it right now. Everyone will expect that these protests are going to be all over the RNC. I can't wait to hear the commentary on the DNC riots. What will the Democrats do then? Blame Bush? Say it all happened because the Obama jobs bill didn't get passed?
Americans wanted a professional community organizer for president and this is what they do. They make the mess and let someone else clean it up. Thanks to video and youtube we all can see who is doing what. Now if the main stream media can do what the protesters want and put them on TV telling us we will all be happier. The more we hear the less we like what these protests are all about. It's the opposite of the Tea Party movement. The more people listened and watched us the more they liked what they heard. That is why the Tea Party put so many candidates in power. Liberals are going to be purged from the Democratic Party but not before they do some lasting damage to it.
But don't you worry. Once the OWS liberals finish their final death roll the Tea Party will come in and clean up the mess. It will be a hard lesson for the Democratic Party. Conservatives will clean up this country the same way they cleaned up Canada.
What are your thoughts on the OWS protests and their toll on the Democratic Party? Do you think these protesters will show up at the DNC? Do you think going on the OWS blogs and trolling for support in protesting the DNC is a good idea? Do you think the OWS protesters are waking up to the fact that the
Dems are also at fault for this mess?
Over the past month, the crusaders at Zuccotti Park have braved the elements, tussled with police, and stood their ground against Mayor Bloomberg. But how much do the protesters actually know about the economic system that they're fighting to change? To find out, we asked 50 occupiers a series of questions about Wall Street, taxes, and government. The results were mixed. See if you can do better.
• What is the Dodd–Frank Act? 84% did not know.
• Who is the chairman of the Federal Reserve? 42% said “Don’t know.” 38% said Bernanke.
• Who is Elizabeth Warren? 64% said “Don’t know.” 24% said “professor/senatorial candidate.” 10% said “Warren Buffet’s wife.”
• What is the “SEC”? 68% said “Don’t know.”
• What is the top marginal income tax rate for the richest 1 percent? Only 10% got it right (35%).
• What does the government spend more on? Health care and pensions, education or the military? 94% said “the military” when the correct answer is “health care and pensions” at 43%, Defense is at 20%.
Allen West expressed criticism of the Occupy Wall Street protests.
“I think the hypocrisy of this movement is somewhat laughable,” he declares. “I would agree with them that we don’t need to have crony capitalism in the United States of America, where we have government picking winners or losers in the free market or trying to be a venture capitalist. But when I see signs that these people are holding up signs saying ‘end capitalism,’ then my question is: What do you replace it with?
“I think there is a danger in the people on Capitol Hill starting to embrace this movement, especially now that we know that the American Nazi Party and the American Communist Party are also starting to align themselves with this Occupy movement.
“When you really start to peel the onion back and look at some of the things these protesters want to see in America, it is contradictory to the foundational principles and values that we have in the United States.
If Howard Stern sees through these idiots it's only a matter of time before everyone starts looking closer at these protests. I love it when these people talk. It's better then a comedy show. I know the main stream media isn't covering these protesters, but they are passing up some great entertainment. Maybe they could have a game show with these Occupy protester and call it Occupy Are you smarter then a 1st grader? Somehow I think the first graders would give more lucid answers. I wonder where all those haroin needs go when they are done with them?
The sad thing is this isn't a joke. These people are really like this. These are the people Obama and the Democrats stand with. But there is a silver lining to all this. This is the beginning of the end for all of them.
For years the United States has been a world leader in economic freedom. But runaway government spending and burdensome regulations have caused a decline in economic freedom in the United States. If our economic freedom continues to fall, how will it affect our quality of life?
An “Occupy Cleveland” protester tells police she was raped in her tent over the weekend.
Cleveland police are investigating an alleged sexual assault incident Saturday at the “Occupy Cleveland” rally involving a 19-year-old female student from Parma.
According to police reports, the 19-year-old student was instructed by “Occupy Cleveland” personnel to “share a tent with the suspect due to a shortage of tents.” The suspect identified himself as “Leland” to the woman. The woman told police that after she had thought the suspect went to sleep in his own bed, she slept in a sleeping bag provided to her by the rally.
The student went to school Monday and told a teacher about her sexual assault incident in Public Square — which is being classified as “kidnapping/rape” — prompting the teacher to immediately contact the authorities.
It's bad enough this happened to this poor girl. But to have protesters saying that she isn't telling the truth or calling her a Tea Party plant is just sick. I don't know anyone that would send their special need child to a protest like that as a plant. That says a lot about the mindset of these protesters though. It The fact is this isn't the first time this has happened at OWS. Drugs and sex seem to be a hobby of the protesters. That is why both men and women need to be careful at these protests. It's just not safe there.
It's time the media starts confronting what is really going on at these protests. Rape, violence, antisemitism, theft, drugs and economic terrorism plots. They keep saying that the OWS and Tea Party are the same, but nothing could be farther from the truth. I'd also like to know when the Democratic Party and Obama will come out and say something other then "we support OWS"? If the Tea Party had had any event like these the lefties would have demanded the Republicans speak out against it. And the Republicans would have. Obama and the Democratic Party started all this and give fuel to the fire. It's time they do what is best for this country and speak out against what is going on at these unsafe protests. Saying nothing and keeping these events out of the news is no different then covering them up as if they never happened. People that go to these protests need to know the dangers in doing so.
Watch Obama’s remarks below. Comments about the Occupy Wall Street movement begin around the 15:45 mark.
This is who Obama and the Democrats stand with. Protesters at Saturday’s Occupy Portland demonstration vented some of their anger at the capitalist system by setting the phrase “F*** the U.S.A.” to music and performing it.
With a jester hat-wearing guitarist, shirtless drummer and heavily bearded, long-haired bassist, the pick-up band was not short on characters. There were no other lyrics, so it’s unclear what exactly the participants wanted or hoped to achieve.
Watch the clip below:
(Content warning — offensive language)
Republicans need to go out and speak about what they see as being the solutions to our common problem of Big Labor,Big Business and Big Government taking all of our money and jobs. The way these protesters are going about their protests is all wrong. Going after the 1% for following the law and making money isn't the problem. The problem lies with those that gave out our money to Big Labor,Big Business and Big Government. Trying to make Big Government take more from the private sector in hopes that Big Government will give them some of that loot ain't going to work the way they think it will. The key is to put us all on the same playing field. No one cares if the rich get richer. But they don't want the rich to get richer because we bailed them out. Give new business the same opportunity as Big Business to succeed. When businesses do bad so do the working class. Most people know that. There are some that will always be jealous of the rich and think that we should all be paid the same amount of money for doing different jobs. That has never worked and just sounds crazy.
The only chance these OWS protesters have of gaining any ground is if they make a hard right to the center. No one like an anarchist or a socialist. If you keep yelling no one will listen to you. Who in their right mind would listen to someone yelling like a ban chi?
Clean yourselves up and clean up your mess. We do judge a book by it's cover. If you fill the protests with dirty filthy perverts,anarchists and antisemitic racists no one else will feel welcome. These protesters don't sound like the average American. They don't talk like the average American and they don't even act like they love this country.
I think nit might be a good idea for one of the Republican candidates to speak out about these protests. Talk about understanding their pain. But also scold those that seem to have taken over these recluse protests. Maybe even suggest that these protesters start a third Party to run against the Republican and Democratic Party.
After these protesters are done scaring away most of their supporters it will leave a big void for those independent voters that are unhappy with the state of our nation. This will be when the Tea Party and Republicans step in to give those moderates a voice of reason. We are hearing some of the protesters saying that they are a lot like the Tea Party. Maybe some of them are like us. We must not throw out the baby with the bath water. There are protesters and supporter of the protests that don't believe in anarchy, socialism,antisemitism... As these protests become more unhinged and scary to go to the moderates will be left with no where to turn.
The Tea Party can become the fifth column (is a group of people who clandestinely undermine a larger group). The anarchist have become the fifth column of the OWS protests. We must also be their to give leadership to those looking for a leader that isn't against this country and capitalism. Believe me the Tea Party is all around these protests. We are talking with them. We are giving them a soft sell on what to protest. Once the far left do their destruction and everyone goes home we will be there to pick up the pieces, like always.
The Tea Party is alive and well. We are working harder then ever to win this war against American values and our freedoms. In the end the far left will peter out and go away. Before they do that they will make a surge of violence and lawlessness. When that happens know that that is the end of the far left protesters. They will become untouchable at that point.
You can watch the full YouTube video of protestors and police going at it in the Occupation of Times Square below. We will start seeing more of this kind of unrest. We will also see the main stream media play it up as "police brutality". As you can see from the video it was the police and their horses that got brutalized:
Axelrod tells ABC’s “This Week” that the American people “want a financial system that works on the level. They want to get a fair shake:”
There is a very good chance that the Ford UAW 2011 contract might not pass. The reason is the contract works out very well for the UAW and not so well for the Ford workers. Every Ford UAW member I've spoken to feels that the UAW is screwing them for their own agenda. Even if this contract passes there will be a lot of distrusting members wondering who the UAW is being paid to represent. Will all the contracts further the UAW more then the members?
If the union members go on strike they will only get $200 a week from the billionaire UAW. That isn't even enough to feed a family. How is it the UAW has billions of dollars and only pay $200 to picket? Maybe the members need to picket in front of the union halls? But those members would be abused if they did that. They would bully there own if that ever happened. But there are a lot of pissed off members. And they aren't pissed off at Ford. They are pissed off at the UAW.
Members are starting to question the UAW about their VEBA and how much is in it and why they now have to fund it? They just don't trust the union. And history has given them reason to.
The UAW put themselves before it's members and this has changed the perspective of most of it's members. The members realize that they have gotten screwed by the UAW. Even if they vote yes because they don't want to strike it wont change the fact that the UAW screwed over it's members to put their own agenda above that of their members. Either way the UAW has lost. A relationship built on distrust is easily broken. The UAW has weakened itself by putting itself first.This is the face of the UAW leadership. I can't help but laugh at the dumb look on his face.

At the very end of the clip you may have noticed two women reacting to being recorded. Opie said that he stopped recording at that moment, but the confrontation continued and, in fact, escalated.
Here is how that clash was described on the Opie and Anthony radio show the next morning: (Again – strong content warning – this is uncensored audio from satellite radio)
As you can hear, Opie was confronted and surrounded by more than two dozen of the protesters, chanting “Pervert, pervert, pervert!“ This is classic ”Alinsky” – In fact, it is right out of Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals” – he taught his followers to:
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
If you see what the main stream media is doing it will make sense. Notice how they never ever show video of these people talking. They tell us what is happening but they never really show what is really happening at these protests. That is why no one trusts the media any more. They tell us what to think or what they think rather then show us the truth. Just like they did with the Tea Party. They told everyone about how violent they are and how they spit on the Black Caucus but there isn't any video proving what they say. The same thing here. They never show video of what is really happening at these rallies.
The longer these protest get the more people will realize what these people want. Free stuff and class warfare. They want the end of capitalism. When will someone ask them what they would replace capitalism with? I, like most Americans, want to hear what these protesters have to say. Let us make up our own minds after we listen to what they have to say.
The problem is these protesters say they want to be heard and then they run off everyone that is trying to video tape them and ask them some questions about their talking points. The Tea Party needs to get out in full force and video tape these protesters and ask them some questions on their talking points. That is the only way we will find out what these protesters are really doing and what they want. We have a right to know everything these protesters want. The only way we will know everything is to ask them the questions the media wont ask.
It's also a good idea to look at how these people are acting so we get a clearer picture and some context to their anger. The Tea Party understands that people are upset with the way things are going. We are upset as well. All we want to know is why aren't they willing to look at all the facts to why things are the way they are. Talking points are fine for a start but maybe these protesters need to use their God given minds to think past the Soros,MoveOn.org socialist rants and posters. No one is saying that capitalism is perfect, but nothing in this broken world is. But what are these protesters ideas on what to put in place of capitalism? If they have a better way to do something lets hear it. All I've seen is anger and running away when these protesters are asked to think about what they are saying.
The Tea Party seen the problem and came up with a solution that the voters stood behind and voted on. Other then anarchy and chaos what solutions have these Democratic Party protesters come up with? Let's debate the solution rather then the problem. No harm ever came out of debating an issue. But we all know this wont happen with these protesters. They don't want to debate anything. They just want to force their ways on the rest of Americans with their bully tactics. The problem for them is Americans don't want what they are selling and they know it. That is why they run away when pressed for deeper answers to what their talking points are. Like roaches they run away when a light is shown on them.
These socialist driven protests are destined to fail. They know this as well. Just because we are a free nation doesn't mean everything is free. Someone has to pay for what they want. These protesters will give up all our freedoms so they don't have to pay for education,food,health care or whatever.
If you are up for it let's debate the issues of the OWS protests. The Tea Party never had a problem with debating our issues and solutions to these problems. Let's hear it. Now is your chance to sell on your solutions to the common problem. We Tea Partiers aren't afraid to debate because we have faith in what we are saying.
Can you see why no one in the MSM is showing us what is really going on at these protests? Let's also look at who is supporting these protests. The Ayatollah Supports Occupy Wall Street. I wonder why our enemies support these protesters?
Violence and lawlessness is the answer to the liberal Occupy Wall Street protests. They need to get arrested to prove their points. Threaten more acts of terrorism. I'm sure you are wondering why I would say that violence is the answer. Liberals knew that if the Tea Party had become violent we would lose. That is why they just made it up. Too bad for them no one believes them since there isn't any video proof of violence.
It might take a while for the main stream media to print the violence coming out of the OWS protests. But believe me they wont be able to cover for them forever. More and more videos are coming out showing calls for violence, racism and lawlessness from these protests. As these protests become more violent people will start being affraid to go to them and support them in their socialist cause. As more video proof comes out about the racism of these protesters it will be harder for them to gain support.
Violence is the answer to shuting down these socialist protests. They will destroy themselves just like they want to destroy capitalism. It's just a matter of time before these lazy liberals realize they can't get everything they want. That is when they will have their tantrums and become even more violent.
The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006!
Forty-six Republicans joined with two Democrats to filibuster the Forty-six Republicans joined with two
Democrats to filibuster the $447 billion plan.
That vote was not final. The roll call was kept open Tuesday night to allow Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H. to vote. But it would have taken 60 votes in the 100-member Senate to keep the legislation alive.
It will be hard to blame Republicans for not liking this bill. The only bipartisan part of this idiot Jobs Bill was those Democrats and Republicans that came together to defeat it. They know how bad this bill is and instead of standing with their party they put country first. I'm glade to see both parties coming together like this.
“One of the speakers said the solution is nonviolent movement. No, my friend. I’ll give you two examples: French Revolution, and Indian so-called Revolution.
Gandhi, Gandhi today is, with respect to all of you, Gandhi today is a tumor that the ruling class is using constantly to mislead us. French Revolution made fundamental transformation. But it was bloody.
India, the result of Gandhi, is 600 million people living in maximum poverty.
So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.
Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”
Watch the video for yourself, and listen as the people cheer his comments:
Bill Maher is also asking these protesters to start being more violent then they already know. He told these protesters they should throw a brick through Fox News' window to make them shut up about covering the violence at these protests.
By the reaction of the Occupy Boston protesters they defend Iran's terrorist plot. But I'd like to know what you think we should do to Iran. Something has to be done that is for sure. If we do nothing it will just be worse for the next president and Congress to deal with. If we declare war with Iran we need to go at Iran full forced. We need to make them forget about attacking us and start worrying about rebuilding their country. Yes I said they need to rebuild their country, not us. In fact if we go to war over their attempted attack on us I want their oil. I'm getting sick and tired of these Muslim countries going after us and we end up rebuilding their country and they get to keep their oil. It's time we teach these anti-American countries that if they attack us they will no longer exist as they once were.
We don't have the money to go into any more wars right now. But that doesn't mean that we can't get the money out of their ground to pay for it. We have been running and hiding from Iran for a long time now. It doesn't work. Just like running from a bully, you have to beat the crap out of them so they never ever want to screw with you again.
This may sound harsh, but sometimes that is the only way to teach these idiot not to mess with us. They must pay for their actions. I will not support a bomb and rebuild effort in that region any more. We are the only country in the world that does that. They want a war then give it to them. We need oil and money to pay for the war they want so we must take it. Winner take all.
I don't really care what the liberals have to say about this. They have made their points about standing with terrorists at the Occupy Boston protest. We know how they feel and they care more about those that want to destroy our country then those that defend it. I don't remember any libs defending our soldiers when they did wrong. But they are all for murderers and terrorists.
We have the right to protect ourselves. Our gorvernments main job is to make sure we are protected. Doing nothing is not protecting us. Before we bomb the crap out of Iran it might be a good idea to remove all ILLEGAL Iranian immogrants. Not the legal immogrants but the ones that are breaking the law. It is too risky to keep them in this country during a war. If you don't like it then you can protest by going with them.
If any of this offends anyone, too bad. You wont cry too hard when gas is under a $1 and we don't have to pay to rebuild anything. Just remember they came after us.
A Occupy Wall Street protester camped in Zuccotti Park tries to catch a little sun on an overcast morning in the financial district in New York, Tuesday.
Is this what the left-wing calls democracy? It's bad enough that there has been so much racism and lawlessness coming out of these protests, but come on do you have to destroy everything you touch? I'm sure part of their demands will now be toilets,showers,housing and food or they will just take what they think is owed them?
This video shows how these protesters think. They go after Geraldo and he was trying to get their views on their protests. He had two liberals on to try and explain what these liberals are trying to do. I think it is obvious that these people are just a mob of unhappy liberals that want free stuff and will stop at nothing to get what they demand. Even if it is against the law or infringes on someones civil rights. Let's not forget how the liberals treated John Lewis by not letting him speak. I still can't figure why they wouldn't let a black civil rights leader speak.
We are seeing what these people will do if they ever got power in the government.
In the clip above, actor and activist Danny Glover surprised Occupy LA demonstrators on Saturday in front of Downtown's City Hall. In the sweltering heat of the afternoon (it is certainly not fall yet in Los Angeles), Glover says participating on the weekends is not enough. “We need 24/7 warriors,” he cries out at the end of his speech.
"Warriors"? What do "warriors" do? So I take this as just one more call to violence and war on Americans and the private sector. Businesses and all Americans need to prepare for more of the violence coming out of these liberal lawless protests. It might not be a bad idea to get some pepper spray. They seem to go down like a ton of bricks when sprayed with it.

Panini and Company Cafe normally sells sandwiches to tourists in Lower Manhattan and the residents nearby, but in recent days its owner, Stacey Tzortzatos, has also become something of a restroom monitor. Protesters from Occupy Wall Street, who are encamped in a nearby park, have been tromping in by the scores, and not because they are hungry.
Ms. Tzortzatos’s tolerance for the newcomers finally vanished when the sink was broken and fell to the floor. She installed a $200 lock on the bathroom to thwart nonpaying customers, angering the protesters... Several businesses said they had no choice but to respond to the influx of protesters by closing bathrooms. Mike Keane, who owns O’Hara’s Restaurant and Pub, said that the theft of soap and toilet paper had soared and that one protester had used the bathroom but had failed to properly use the toilet. Both Ms. Tzortzatos, owner of the Panini and Company Cafe, and Mr. Keane said the protesters rarely bought anything, yet hurled curses when they were told that only paying customers could use their bathrooms. Steve Zamfotis, manager of another nearby store, Steve’s Pizza, said: “They are pests. They go to the bathroom and don’t even buy a cup of coffee.”
‘John Lewis is Not Better Than Anyone!’ the crowd says together. No they are acting as many of us have labeled them drones. They sound just like Borg drones from Star Trek the Next Generation…. seriously!
Quite frankly I dont find what they are doing amusing its very disturbing. These people are demonstrating 1) no respect for Lewis 2) they will take direction/ orders from anyone. Who is to say they wont strike out physically and invoke violence when someone calls for it? Who is to say when one of their own who deservingly incites the police gets arrested there isnt a call to lash out at the police. Dont say it cant happen, these peoples mouths are watering for a fight! After all they mimic themselves off of the 60′s protests and we know they had their share of violence.
These people regardless of their rhetoric for violence have demonstrated they are loose cannons easily influenced to act by their handlers word. Stay clear of this folks they want conservs, TEA party ppl there to attack and blame as enablers of everything they are protesting about! You see you are tied to the GOP/repubs in their eyes and the GOP/repubs are tied to the evil bankers and corporations so its all your fault!
Let them stew and get themselves in trouble… this thing is a hornets nest!
The mob dictatorship chose to not give the Congressman the time of day because allowing him to speak was not supported by a consensus. At 8:35 of this video from ConservARTive.com covering the disturbing quorum, the mob silences several crowd members attempting to apoligize to Rep. Lewis:
The more I see of these racist protesters the sicker they make me. That is why we need to dust off our video cameras and start filming them. When will the Democratic Party and Obama speak out about these actions that are so prevalent at these protests?
Racist Rager @ Occupy Wall St.
The Occupy Wall Street movement has adopted racist rules for speech at its nightly “General Assembly” meetings, according to which white men cannot speak unless preceded by some other type of person.
State your race, gender & sexual orientation, then maybe we'll let you speak. Later.
According to Occupy Wall Street supporter/observer “Lori“:
Occupy Wall Street’s General Assembly operates under a revolutionary “progressive stack.” A normal “stack” means those who wish to speak get in line. A progressive stack encourages women and traditionally marginalized groups speak before men, especially white men. This is something that has been in place since the beginning, it is necessary, and it is important.
“Step up, step back” was a common phrase of the first week, encouraging white men to acknowledge the privilege they have lived in their entire lives and to step back from continually speaking. This progressive stack has been inspiring and mind-boggling in its effectiveness.

Is it OK to be a liberal racist as long as it's against the Jews and whites? It's all about the color of our skin to these liberals. When will they give up their hate? They hate the rich and want what they have. They want the "rich" to work and pay for their education, houses... and they think protesting is the best way to take what they want. There have been numerous signs that say, "kill the rich". They don't care about anyones rights. At what point will you and I be the target of these liberal thieves and racists?
A look at some of the claims in his news conference and how they compare with the facts:
OBAMA: “If it turns out that there are Republicans who are opposed to this bill, they need to explain to me, but more importantly to their constituencies and the American people, why they’re opposed, and what would they do.”
THE FACTS: While Republicans might not be campaigning on their opposition to Obama’s plan, they’ve hardly kept their objections a secret.
In a memorandum to House Republicans Sept. 16, House Speaker John Boehner and members of the GOP leadership said they could find common ground with Obama on the extension of certain business tax breaks, waiving a payment withholding provision for federal contractors, incentives for hiring veterans, and job training measures in connection with unemployment insurance.
They objected to new spending on public works programs, suggesting instead that Congress and the president work out those priorities in a highway spending bill. And they raised concerns about Obama’s payroll tax cuts for workers and small businesses, arguing that the benefits of a one-year tax cut would be short-lived. The memo also pointed out that reducing payroll taxes, which pay for Social Security, temporarily forces Social Security to tap the government’s general fund. And it opposed additional spending to prevent layoffs of teachers, police officers and other public workers.
OBAMA: “Every idea that we’ve put forward are ones that traditionally have been supported by Democrats and Republicans alike.”
THE FACTS: Obama proposes to pay for his jobs bill by raising taxes, something traditionally opposed by Republicans and, in the form Obama proposed it, even some Democrats. Senate Democrats were so allergic to Obama’s approach, which relied largely on limiting deductions that can be taken by individuals making over $200,000 a year and couples making more than $250,000, that they’re eliminating it and replacing it with a new tax on millionaires.
In claiming bipartisan support for the components of his proposal, the president appears to be referring just to what the plan would do, not how it’s paid for, but that‘s a crucial distinction he doesn’t make.
Some of tax-cutting proposals offered by Obama have received significant Republican support in the past. But some of the new spending he proposes has received only nominal Republican backing. Evidence of bipartisanship provided by the White House includes legislation last year that provided $10 billion to prevent teacher layoffs. It won the support of only two Republican senators – Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine and among the most moderate Republicans in Congress. Another example cited by the White House was his proposal last year to offer tax breaks to businesses that hire new workers – it passed the House 217-201 with six Republican votes.
OBAMA: “The answer we’re getting right now is: Well, we’re going to roll back all these Obama regulations… Does anybody really think that that is going to create jobs right now and meet the challenges of a global economy?”
THE FACTS: Well, yes, some think it will. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce last month submitted a jobs proposal to Obama that included a call to ease regulations on businesses. It specifically called for streamlining environmental reviews on major construction projects and to delay the issuance of some potentially burdensome regulations until the economy and employment have improved. In the letter, Chamber President Thomas Donohue also called on Congress to pass legislation that would require congressional approval of major regulations. The chamber did not indicate how many jobs such regulatory changes could create, but it said: “Immediate regulatory relief is required in order to begin moving $1 trillion-$2 trillion in accumulated private capital off of the sidelines and into business expansion.”
OBAMA: “We can either keep taxes exactly as they are for millionaires and billionaires, with loopholes that lead them to have lower tax rates, in some cases, than plumbers and teachers, or we can put teachers and construction workers and veterans back on the job.”
THE FACTS: True, “in some cases” wealthy people can exploit loopholes to make their tax rate lower than for people of middle or low income. In recent rhetoric, Obama had suggested it was commonplace for rich people to pay lower rates than others, a claim not supported by IRS statistics. But on Thursday, Obama accurately stated that it only happens sometimes.
In 2009, 1,470 households filed tax returns with incomes above $1 million yet paid no federal income tax, according to the IRS. Yet that was less than 1 percent of returns with incomes above $1 million. On average, taxpayers who made $1 million or more paid 24.4 percent of their income in federal income taxes; those making $100,000 to $125,000 paid 9.9 percent; those making $50,000 to $60,000 paid 6.3 percent. The White House argues that when payroll taxes – paid only on the first $106,800 of wages – are factored in, more middle class workers wind up with a higher tax rate than millionaires.
OBAMA: “China has been very aggressive in gaming the trading system to its advantage and to the disadvantage of other countries, particularly the United States. …. And currency manipulation is one example of it, or at least intervening in the currency markets in ways that have led their currency to be valued lower than the market would normally dictate. And that makes their exports cheaper and that makes our exports to them more expensive.”
THE FACTS: While Obama complained about China’s efforts to keeps its currency undervalued to gain trade advantages, his administration has repeatedly refused to brand China as a currency manipulator in a report that the Treasury Department is required to send to Congress twice a year.
Such a designation would trigger negotiations between the two countries and could ultimately lead to U.S. trade sanctions against China.
The administration has been reluctant to brand China a currency manipulator, as have past administrations, because the United States depends on China to buy U.S. Treasury securities to help finance America’s budget deficits. China owns $1.17 trillion in U.S. Treasury securities, making it the largest foreign holder of Treasury debt.
The fact is Republicans aren't the only ones that don't like Obama's jobs bill. Democrats in both houses of congress don't like it either. Many Democrats on Capitol Hill appear far from sold that the president has the right antidote to spur major job growth and turn around their party’s political fortunes.
Here is what some Democratic Party leaders are saying. “Terrible,” Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) told POLITICO when asked about the president’s ideas for how to pay for the $450 billion price tag. “We shouldn’t increase taxes on ordinary income. … There are other ways to get there.”
“That offset is not going to fly, and he should know that,” said Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu from the energy-producing Louisiana, referring to Obama’s elimination of oil and gas subsidies. “Maybe it’s just for his election, which I hope isn’t the case.”
“I think the best jobs bill that can be passed is a comprehensive long-term deficit-reduction plan,” said Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), discussing proposals to slash the debt by $4 trillion by overhauling entitlement programs and raising revenue through tax reforms. “That’s better than everything else the president is talking about — combined.”
And those are just the moderates in the party. Some liberals also have concerns.
“There is serious discomfort with potentially setting up Social Security as a fall guy because you’re taking this contribution out,” said Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona, referring to Obama’s proposal to further slash payroll taxes.
If Obama can't even get his own party in line for this jobs bill how can he blame it all on Republicans? That is just crazy talk as far as I'm concerned. But that's the Obama way I guess.
“Obviously, I’ve heard of it. I’ve seen it on television,” he said. “I think it expresses the frustrations that the American people feel. That we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression. Huge collateral damage all throughout the country, all across Main Street. And yet, you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on abusive practices that got us in this problem in the first place.”
See his response below:
Obama refused to condemn any of the protesters actions (despite multiple altercations with police and arrests) and said they are just expressing their frustrations. That sounds to me like he stands with these lawless liberal warriors on Wall Street. Why in the world didn't Obama take the time to tell his liberal supporters to calm down and keep the law for a change? Is he afraid they might turn on him next? Are these supporters of Obama's really worth it? This isn't about doing what is best for the Obama campaign. It's time he does what is best for the country as a whole. He doesn't have to tell them to go home. But he should tell them to obey the law and give up the terrorism and violence.
(CONTENT WARNING for strong language):
This is some of the racism coming out of these liberal protesters. Why can't Democrats speak out about this racism?
Protesters from an anti-Wall Street march are arrested and pepper sprayed as they tried to march to Wall Street Wednesday night.
Can the main stream media still say that these protests are peaceful and get away with this lie? This is real violence not the make believe violence the left said the Tea Party was. It's time the the Democratic Party leaders speak out about this violence coming from their side. Obama, with his class warfare rhetoric started this and he needs to take control of it. That is unless this is what he wanted to begin with. He is a community agitator by trade and that is what he did best.
Obama also needs to speak out about his ilk making threats of terrorism on the NYSE on Oct.10. This isn't what democracy looks like and the Democratic Party needs to do something about it.
I also think Wall Street needs to do something about the Democratic Party backed protesters. The best thing they can is cut off the Democratic Party funding. Wall Street gives more money to the Democratic Party by far then the Republican Party. Wall Street needs to cut them off.
The fact is Obama and the Democratic Party bailed out Wall Street, not main street. But the mindless protesters somehow haven't figured that out. The protesters also haven't figured out that our national debt was raised by the Democratic Party. The young protesters need to realize that it is their generation that will get stuck with the bill. Democrats want to keep spending their money, while Republicans want to cut spending and pay down that debt now, not the next few generations.
The fact is these protesters have a right to protest in a legal way. They can say whatever they want, and they do. But if they keep going this route of violence and lawlessness our jailes will just get more full of liberals. It's time we start looking at the fact that these protesters are becoming more violent and it is the Democratic Parties fault. If this is the "Hope and Change" they were looking for than vote for Obama. But if you don't like the direction of this country then vote him out of office.
Obama and the Democratic Party set their minion free and told them what to do. This is their bad and they need to fix it. Hiding from reality wont make it go away. As Americans start to realize that this is Obama's doing and that he started this mess with his class warfare rhetoric people will start to bail from the Democratic Party in droves. Who in their right mind would want to be associated with these kinds of people. They call themselves the 99%. How is it that most Americans don't stand with them? Find one poll that says otherwise.
The good news is these violent protesters are taking Obama and the Democratic Party down with them. People know which Party stands with them. As they become more and more violent and lawless with threats of economic terrorism people start putting the pieces together. It isn't just by chance that Obama's approval numbers keep going down. They see what is happening and they blame him, not Republican for this mess. Obama has never ever had to clean up his own mess when he was community organizing. He just steered the pot and let someone else do the work of cleaning it up. We don't need any more steering the pot and class warfare. We need solutions to the problems. We need a leader. Having violent protests demanding that the top 1% of money earners give their money to the other 99% isn't a real or lasting solution. It is theft. If these people put as much effort into working for their own money rather then trying to take from the "rich" we would all be better off. It's just a matter of time before these takers just start stealing what they think is theirs. If this is their ideology, and it is, the jailes are the right place for them.
