  • I Know Paid Protesters Are Real (Because I'm One Of Them)

    Cracked ^ | March 27, 2017 | By J.F. Sargent
    We talked to "Matt" about all of it (he started as an unpaid protester, graduated to "Paid Protester" at the 2011 Take Back the Capitol event, and worked as an organizer for the Service Employees International Union) and he explained how a career in activism really works ...yes, there is absolutely some money floating around activism, that's inevitable in a capitalist society. But in the end, the whole "paid protester" thing is far more complicated than either side wants to admit ... kinda like every other political issue, now that we think about it.
  • NYPD sent video teams to record Occupy and BLM protests over 400 times, documents reveal

    The Verge ^ | March 22, 2017 | George Joseph
    New York City Police Department documents obtained by The Verge show that police camera teams were deployed to hundreds of Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street protests from 2011–2013 and 2016. Originally acquired through a Freedom of Information Law request by New York attorney David Thompson of Stecklow, Cohen & Thompson, the records are job reports from the NYPD’s Technical Assistance Response Unit (TARU) that document over 400 instances in which the unit’s video team attended, and sometimes filmed, demonstrations. More important than the records the NYPD turned over, however, are those that it claims it cannot find: namely,...

    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was invited to a meeting at Jefferson Middle School Academy Friday morning by the Washington, D.C. teacher’s union. However, when she arrived for the meeting, a handful of protesters took up positions on a narrow stairway and blocked her path. Video of the incident was captured by WJLA reporter Sam Sweeney: (VIDEO-AND-TWEET-AT-LINK) As DeVos turned away from the blocked stairway, a man holding a Black Lives Matter sign ran after her saying, “Keep giving money to Senators and buying your way to the position, you should be so proud of yourself.” DeVos got back in her...

    American Thinker ^ | February 7, 2017 | Sally Zelikovsky
    Contrary to assertions by useful idiots like Robert Reich that the Berkeley riots were the work of paramilitary right-wingers, it has become increasingly evident that black-clad Antifa anarchists coordinated with Bay Area community activists and UC Berkeley student groups to orchestrate the violent protests against Milo Yiannapolous. The Antifa rioters are the same mask-wearing, black-outfitted, Molotov cocktail-throwing, fire-burning, stick-carrying pugilist punks featured in The Occupation Manifesto and The Occupation Devolution videos chronicling Occupy Oakland in 2011. Although some of us sounded the alarm, too few paid attention. Antifa is short for “anti-fascist” and is pronounced an-TEE-fah. According to left-leaning tech...

    New Republic ^ | 1 Feb, 2017 | JEDEDIAH PURDY
    From Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter, the left has been reborn. Can it find a way to harness the populist uprising that brought Trump to power? In late October 2011, I was volunteering at the Occupy Wall Street library in lower Manhattan. Tucked into a corner of Zuccotti Park, the library was staffed mainly by anarchists of an exceedingly orderly bent. If society were suddenly freed from coercive institutions like libraries, these people would gladly spend the morning sorting donated books by Dewey decimal number—as they were doing in the mild fall weather. I was there for only...
  • Anti-Trump ‘Occupy Inauguration’ event promoted by Seattle councilwoman with city resources

    The Washington Times ^ | January 4, 2017 | Douglas Ernst
    Seattle’s only Socialist council member is using government resources to promote an anti-Trump event on Inauguration Day. Kshama Sawant wrote a letter Seattle residents as 2016 came to a close that urged them to resist “right-wing anti-worker bigot” President-elect Donald Trump. A 10-paragraph screed against the billionaire ends with a link to “Resist Trump: Occupy Inauguration — Seattle!” on Facebook. Nearly 9,000 people have seen the event and 3,000 have committed to attend. “Thank you for making 2016 a year to remember. When we fight, we win!” the Dec. 31 letter reads. “We cannot, as Hillary Clinton suggested, ‘give Trump...

      The protest of Share/wheel at the County Administration building has ended... The squeaky wheel gets the grease. A week ago, The Seattle city council and the King county Administration has caved in to the demands of the largest bum mafia in America. Of course we all know they were in on it the whole time! I mean they want any excuse they can get to raise taxes and increase the size of government!!! The government has agreed to give in to share's demands for funding and has awarded them $428,000 in funding. In addition they will be teaming...

Jones calls the US' deficit problem "phony" and made up. "Hold on to your hats, we're going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and rescue America's middle class," Jones told MSNBC's "The Last Word." Jones warns of an "American Fall" like there was an Arab Spring. Jones was President Obama's "green jobs czar" until he resigned in fall of 2009.

    The squatters continue to loiter at the county administration building raising a stink demanding more and more of other people's money. We have obtained word from Seattle councilman Burgess about a new law that would not only legitimize the SHARE squatters at county Admin but make it legal to camp in any public area! This means that parks, sidewalks, government buildings, open lots ETC could turn into outdoor homeless shelters!   Homeless Encampments: An Update It has been four weeks since my colleagues’ introduced legislation that would create a right to camp on public property throughout the city. I opposed...

    Well its been awhile since I reported on the mayhem in Seattle being caused by Democrats and by an organization called SHARE/WHEEL, this organization is really a cross between the mafia, the SEIU and occupy wall street. The comparisons are obvious yes but surprisingly this is not known well to people outside of the pacific Northwest. In fact I didn't even hear about it until I learned from Steve Ferrell AKA Seataclibertarian my business associate who lives there about Share's existence. Share wheel runs homeless shelters inside churches run mainly from taxpayer funds, despite having a supposed "zero tolerance" policy...

    The Bend Bulletin ^ | September 18, 2016 | Deepti Hajela and Michael Balsamo, The Associated Press
    NEW YORK — For a time, Occupy Wall Street was everywhere with its grass-roots encampments — first in New York City, then globally — and the refrain, “We are the 99 percent!” And then it was gone. Its most famous camp in lower Manhattan was cleared out in an overnight police raid two months after it started, and other Occupy locations fizzled soon thereafter. But five years later, demonstrators gathered once again in New York’s Zuccotti Park on Saturday to commemorate the movement and what they said has been its lasting impact.....

    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...

    Students who work as teaching and research assistants at private universities will be allowed to vote to unionize under a ruling Tuesday by the National Labor Relations Board that found that they are employees under federal labor law. The case arose from a union election petition filed by a group of primarily graduate students at Columbia University, who are seeking to form a union that will join the United Automobile Workers. The three Democratic members of the board made up the majority; the lone Republican member dissented. A fifth spot on the board has been vacant since last year. The...

    Hillary Clinton will soon be feeling the Bern in the form of millions of Bernie Sanders supporters bent on shaping history. They are fighting for a history with President Sanders and without another President Clinton. Millions of angry protesters will descend on Philadelphia, PA ahead of the convention to attempt to sway superdelegates. Trained in nonviolent protests, they plan an Occupy-style protest for the length of the convention. Organizers predict Millions will attend. Many media outlets are predicting a smaller number in the tens of thousands. This figure, reported on Facebook, accounts for just one of dozens of groups participating....

    “Occupy DNC” protesters have locked down two campground sites where they will set up tent cities to use as home base for their anti-Hillary protests. One of the group’s organizers has said she expects “several thousand” protesters to stay at the campsites. As previously reported by The Daily Caller, more than 20,000 protesters have committed to protesting “a fraudulent Hillary nomination.” Hundreds of those protesters have already reserved two campgrounds in southern New Jersey, about twenty minutes from the Wells Fargo Center where the DNC Convention will be held....

    A woman who appears to be a professional protester appeared in the middle of the violent rally against Donald Trump in San Jose, Calif., on Thursday evening. Given the previous appearance of paid-protesters at anti-Trump events, it raises the question of whether the violent mobs have been rented — hence the term “rent-a-mob.” Writing in the Daily Caller in March, Trump supporter Roger Stone said, “I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement … Several admitted answering a Craig’s list ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters.” Stone claimed the protesters were “paid for mostly by George Soros...

    The following is a testimony by Maurice Newhope, who has stayed at Seattle's notorious share shelters and tent cities. Maurice Newhope is a conservative libertarian activist who has experienced homelessness in the past after he was wrongfully and unjustly accused of a crime. Despite having his name cleared, his arrest record has stopped him from finding work and he has difficulty. It is his third time being homeless in America. Maurice expects to get housing in a month or so in New Hampshire. He currently works part time in the Manchester Concord metro area.  Maurice was enrolled in SHARE/WHEEL from...
