    FBI agents admit in court papers that they had no arrest warrant when they took Duane Ehmer into custody at a checkpoint outside the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge on Jan. 27, 2016, contrary to an agent's testimony earlier this week. It wasn't until the day after Ehmer's arrest that a federal magistrate judge signed a criminal complaint against Ehmer based on an FBI agent's probable cause affidavit. Ehmer's lawyer Michele Kohler has urged the judge to suppress evidence found in what she contends was an unlawful search of Ehmer's car and horse trailer after his arrest without a warrant. ......

    Australian documentary hobbyist spontaneously visits Occupy Melbourne rally with videocamera, planning to make some casual interviews about their event. A long, eerie series of paranoid outbursts from the dirty but clearly priveleged Occupiers ensue: They want to grow the government big enough to control the lives of EVERYONE --except them. Anyone with a camera is a spy, "What is your name..? What you're doing isn't cool, I'll tell the cops, here, that you're making me feel bad..." Many of the Occupiers show the strange opinion that the cherished notion of RIGHTS is anything they like, non-rights are things they don't...

  • The Drum Circle Beats for “AmEriKaN” Climate Change

    09/22/2014 4:30:16 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 23 replies ^ | September 22, 2014 | John Ransom
    Liberal publications around the globe celebrated climate change on Sunday by gushing over a reconvening of the same drum circle that took over Wall Street in the misshaped Occupy movement in 2011—and failed to do anything but offend ordinary Americans. “More than 400,000 people turned out for the People's Climate March in New York City on Sunday,” says the HuffPo, “just days before many of the world's leaders are expected to debate environmental action at the United Nations climate summit.” Coincidence? No. Claiming that the Sunday marchers were part of big tent that represents all of America, the New York...

    Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s suggestion that NATO forces be deployed in the future Palestinian state is not well-received by his rivals, the Hamas rulers of Gaza. A spokesman for Hamas said Friday that the faction would regard any international military presence within a future Palestinian state as "occupation" forces, reported the Ma’an news agency. During a rally in southern Gaza, spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that any international forces stationed in “Palestine” as a result of a peace agreement with Israel would be treated the same as “the Israeli occupation.” Abu Zuhri called on Abbas to withdraw from...
  • Attention, Protestors: You're Probably Part of the 1% [$34,000 = richest 1% on a global level]

    02/14/2014 3:25:08 PM PST · by grundle · 3 replies ^ | October 28, 2011 | Morgan Housel
    The recent Occupy Wall Street protests have aimed their message at the income disparity between the 1% richest Americans and the rest of the country. But what happens when you expand that and look at the 1% richest of the entire world? Some really interesting numbers emerge. If there were a global Occupy Wall Street protest, people as well off as Linda Frakes might actually be the target. In America, the top 1% earn more than $380,000 per year. We are, however, among the richest nations on Earth. How much do you need to earn to be among the top...

"If you think it's easy to ask people to do what they did, it's not," he said, pausing to gain his composure.

    Just when you would think that the far Left Obama booster organization could not get any more ridiculous, it sinks to ever lower levels of absurdity. The latest example involves MoveOn’s push to render the phrase “illegal aliens” or “illegal immigrants” hate speech. A video posted last week at’s website charges that calling illegal immigrants “illegal” fits the definition of a hate crime and calls for the word “illegal” to be abolished when describing individuals entering the United States illegally. They would prefer using adjectives such as “undocumented” immigrants or “unauthorized” immigrants.

    The Portland Police Bureau is expected to end the fiscal year in the red, overspending its $169 million budget by $3.42 million. The largest drivers are nearly $2 million in Occupy Portland policing costs; more retirements (26 so far this fiscal year), bringing larger sick leave and vacation payouts; and cash payouts to officers for earned holiday compensatory time. As a result, the bureau this spring has asked for additional one-time funds to plug the budget hole.

    Since the Occupy protests began, reports of demonstrators placing themselves and even their small children in harm’s way have surfaced near-daily. This instance is no exception. MRCTV reporters happened to be at a D.C. Metro station and witnessed a group of Occupiers fight with convention center security guards while trying to block its entrance…with small children. Watch as protesters place the children right in the middle of the altercation while one Occupier says that since the children are hers, the action is justifiable. Meanwhile, other demonstrators seem to think that using children as human shields is permissible simply because they...

    MONTREAL - Over the past few weeks, leftist activists invaded public spaces in all major cities across Canada, beginning in downtown Toronto. Their actions were inspired by the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) encampment in Zucotti Park. There are, however, a few differences. American protesters are outraged by: The widening gap in wealth between the poor and the rich, to the benefit of the 1% of the most fortunate. Bank bailouts with public money. The impoverishment of the middle class. The drop in the home values. Growing poverty. Increases in health insurance premiums. The phenomenal public deficit. None of these problems...

    The 99ers, which more accurately are 22ers, have no coalescing message other than a desire for a central command-and-control government, whether nationally or globally. In other words, they share the kindred spirit of redistributive fairness with our puerile president. Initially we saw the Muslim Brotherhood uprising, and now, with the Wall Street Spring, Barack Obama is causing democracy to break out everywhere! First, Barack Obama said the Wall Street Occupiers express "the frustration of the American people." Then, while honoring MLK at the dedication of the new memorial in Washington, Obama channeled the late civil rights leader in support of...
