Northwest FBI Raids Target Occupy's 'Black Bloc'
Breitbart ^ | July 31, 2012 | John Sexton

Posted on 08/01/2012 8:58:17 AM PDT by Baynative

The FBI has performed multiple raids of homes belonging to suspected anarchists in Portland, Oregon and in Olympia and Seattle, Washington. Five grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with the searches. Photos from a raid carried out in Portland show law enforcement seizing computers and boxes from a home. The raids appear to be part of an investigation into activities by the Occupy movement's "black bloc."

Occupy had big plans for the spring. Having mostly been rousted out of public parks by police last winter, the movement promised a big return on May 1st this year. But that promise quickly fizzled, in part because marches in several cities turned violent and further turned off local residents.

Breitbart is on top of this, but I found nothing in local rags.

That’s good. These people are serious trouble. On top of that, they seem to have unlimited amounts of money to travel the globe (I’d bet a number of them are trust fund babies) and turn up to cause mayhem in any city worldwide.

These are the real kooks of the left and very dangerous. The FBI should throw the key away on these nuts.

Or the Justice Dept has found a way to keep the local investigators from getting to these guys. I know I am very cynical but this is the quickest way to shut down the locals who have a vested interest in following the truth by following the money. Many in the Obama admin may not want that to happen.

Did anything ever turn out with the rumor that James Holmes was/is a member of this group?

From the website Examiner...

The reports that Aurora movie theater gunman James E. Holmes was a former member of the “Black Bloc” faction of the Occupy movement have caused considerable debate. Yet the most strident denials of this reportage seem to come almost entirely from the political left. More objective sources as well as blogs and web sites on the right seem to assert Holmes was a member of the group.

The “Black Bloc” faction of Occupy has targeted law enforcement in other instances, and three members of the group are facing charges of attempting to kill cops in Chicago. It has become clear the “booby-trapping” of his apartment with trip wires and bombs was intended to kill the most likely next persons to enter that apartment, namely law enforcement. Aurora, Colorado police have state they are angry at knowing they were targeted in this way by the alleged movie theater shooter.

The web site GodLikeProductions.com has done an analysis of the commonly seen picture of Holmes along with two others that are allegedly him also, one from the dating site profile that is believed to have been his that had the line about visiting him in prison soon, and another of a mug shot of an Occupy New York member arrested in October of 2011.

Private Investigator Bill Warren reported on his blog the connection between Holmes and the Occupy movement, and his web site is still reporting that information as a result of his investigation of the issue. As some of the left seem to more stridently deny the connection, it appears more evidence is reported showing that Holmes might well be a member of the Occupy movement or a former member of the group.

Uh....who's going to be left to bake the bread? Everything would go stagnant.

If all dept were canceled, and all wealth was redistributed, why would anyone bother to go to work? Why bust your hump so these people can just sit around, get high, and bang on drums all day?

Idiots. Screw them. The freeloaders can get their own jobs. We owe them nothing.

Undercover agent Larry Grathwohl discusses the Weather Underground's post-revolution governing plans for the United States:

Larry Grathwohl:

"I asked, 'well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?' and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say 'eliminate,' I mean 'kill.' Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."

Anarcho-syndicalism


A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.

In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism.[78] With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democratically self-managed by the workers.

Anarcho-syndicalists seek to abolish the wage system and private ownership of the means of production, which they believe lead to class divisions. Important principles include workers' solidarity, direct action (such as general strikes and workplace recuperations), and workers' self-management. This is compatible with other branches of anarchism, and anarcho-syndicalists often subscribe to anarchist communist or collectivist anarchist economic systems.[79] Its advocates propose labour organization as a means to create the foundations of a non-hierarchical anarchist society within the current system and bring about social revolution.

My guess is it would be tracked back to the stimulus package - laundered through left wing organizations. Occupy was suppose to be the lefts version of the TEA party, but it consisted of rabid leftists, and failed. It was suppose to look like the 99% of ALL Americans were supporting Obomas Marxist agenda.

To this day, no one knows where Oboma spent a trillion dollars of our money. It just disappeared into the left wing,

Please reveal your problem with "Trust Fund Babies"

"Free" money is never good for countless reasons.

I live in NYC and know plenty of these people. They live off the money their father or grandfathers made and have no experience with people in the real world or producing anything of value. The closest they usually come is being given an already successful business to "run".

I have only met one exception over the years. He completely cut himself off from his parents because he actually understood living on money he didn't earn doesnt build real character. In fact, it does the opposite every time.

I am well off but after what I've seen, I would never give my adult children a dollar more than they actually earn. For a special occasion, gift, wedding, etc maybe. But I would never bankroll their entire lives or pay for mistakes like the parents of many of my acquaintances.

OCCUPY CONGRESS IN WASHINGTON D.C. ON NOVEMBER 11, 2012.

This is after the election. Would this occupy be like the fiasco in Wisconsin? Because it might not be a bad thing to keep a lame duck Congress from doing stupid stuff like signing idiotic UN treaties or passing bloated, earmark stuffed budgets.

That's the "Justice Department," in its various permutations, that would be responsible for follow[ing] the money.

I have trouble envisioning circumstances where they "followed" very diligently, at least before next January 20th, at the earliest. Even then, it will take some time to sweep the halls of the "Justice Department" of the debris that has accumulated.

This is very interesting to me because the Black Block is closely tied to the ILWU and were supporting the union in their efforts against the Longview grain terminal. The Black Bloc also worked in concert with the ILWU at the Oakland OWS protest.

There used to be a lot of internet stuff, about the link between the Black Block and the ILWU, but when I looked last week, it had all disappeared. Last week, we had a bank robbery in Bellingham and the guy was dressed like one of the Black Block anarchists and I couldn’t resist pointing that out to the chagrin of the local OWS people.
