    SEPTA has partially restored service on the Broad Street Line, but protesters are still blocking the subway station Democratic National Convention attendees were expected to use for the evening's events. Democracy Spring protesters attempt to block access to the Wells Fargo on Broad Street during the first day of the Democratic National Convention. Southbound trains to AT&T Station began running again shortly before 5 p.m., but northbound trains have been canceled for all but credentialed passengers from Oregon Station to AT&T Station since about 4:30 p.m. People who are cleared to enter convention events are being allowed on northbound trains,...

    Violence has gotten a lot of attention in the 2016 presidential race — from the kicking and punching of protestors at Trump’s rallies to incitements of violence against Muslim refugees and Mexican immigrants to promises by various candidates to use overwhelming military force to destroy the Islamic State. But nonviolent resistance — that is, when unarmed civilians use a coordinated set of actions, such as protests, strikes, and noncooperation to directly confront opponents without harming or threatening to harm them — has actually been incredibly influential in this election. On both the left and the right, popular movements have brought...

    Rosario Dawson says she's "grateful" following her arrest in Washington, D.C. on Friday. The Daredevil actress was arrested for crowding, obstructing or incommoding after crossing police lines during the Democracy Spring rally at the U.S. Capitol, ET has confirmed. While she was not handcuffed, Dawson was given a ticket for a $50 fine and was processed on site. "This is a tremendous issue and I'm really grateful that I could be here and be a part of it," the 36-year-old actress told reporters following her arrest. "I wanted for me, personally, to be in solidarity with the people who put...

    Many of the exact same groups that participated in Occupy Wall Street and helped organize protest rallies in Ferguson and Baltimore are now promising to bring us “the largest civil disobedience actions in a generation”. I recently wrote about the trouble that radical leftists have caused by attempting to disrupt Trump campaign events, but now there is a very organized effort to turn this into a national movement. On March 19th, thousands of angry protesters will descend on Trump Tower in New York City to denounce Donald Trump’s “fascist policies”, and on April 2nd dozens of leftist organizations will join...

    Hundreds of protesters flocked to the U.S. Capitol Monday for a demonstration against the role of money in politics, prompting arrests of more than 400 by the Capitol police force. The demonstration was part of a series of "Democracy Spring" protests planned in Washington this week by a coalition of groups. The demonstrators chanted slogans like "one person, one vote" and "money out of politics" as they sat on the East Front of the Capitol. One sign read "Things go better without Koch," a reference to the billionaire businessmen David and Charles Koch, who have promised to lead an almost...
  • Obama plans to campaign hard, with legacy on his mind

    Expect to see a whole lot of President Barack Obama this campaign season as he works to spell out what he sees as the stakes in the 2016 election and tries to defend his legacy. As he approaches the end of his term in the midst of an election year that has been defined by heated, often controversial rhetoric coming from the leading Republican candidates, like GOP front-runner Donald Trump, the President is vowing to do all he can to make sure a Democrat replaces him at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He also wants to retake the Senate and win more...

    With little fanfare and almost no news media attention, some of the same radical groups involved in shutting down Donald Trump’s Chicago rally last week are plotting a mass civil disobedience movement to begin next month. They intend to march across the East Coast in order to spark a “fire that transforms the political climate in America.” The operation, calling itself Democracy Spring, is threatening “drama in Washington” with the “largest civil disobedience action of the century.” The radicals believe this will result in the arrest of thousands of their own activists. “We will demand that Congress listen to the...

Rebel Pundit's Jeremy Segal and Andrew Marcus, director of the motion picture Hating Breitbart, documented the "protest" on film, including an interview with Bill Ayers, a founder of the Weather Undergound, who discusses the motivation behind the premeditated and well funded demonstrations.

    Washington Post (I'm not making this up) ^ | 21 March 2016 | By Lindsey Bever
    Protesters at recent Donald Trump campaign rallies have made almost as much news as the presidential candidate himself — getting sucker-punched, landing sucker punches, stopping traffic, stopping the rallies, claiming they were banned from the events. Brandon Tatum, an officer in the Tucson Police Department, went to a Trump rally on Saturday as a civilian to see what was going on. In a subsequent video, he said he thought there was going to be “a full-fledged riot” at the event — but not because of Trump’s supporters. The protesters were the problem, Tatum said. “These people were acting so outrageous,”...

    Politics as Unusual ^ | 3-16-2016 | Otto Lamp
    There is a report on Brietbart here that a radial group calling itself Democracy Spring is planning on organizing "the largest civil disobedience action of the century" in hopes creating national chaos. Obviously, they are modeling their effort after 2011's Arab Spring (the fact they don't realize what an unmitigated disaster the Arab Spring was should clue you in to their cluelessness). Hence their nom de guerre: Democracy Spring. I believe another name is more appropriate: Crybully Spring Because, that is exactly they are--crybullies. They are failing to get their way at the ballot box. Rather than respect the results...
