The St Louis Post Dispatch reported that Nixon spoke to Valerie Jarrett that night.

All night, held him rapt for hours. Nancy Pelosi used to accuse the TEA party of being ‘astroturfers’ back in 2010.

We’ve got tons of threads documenting everything that happened in Ferguson.. the mayor repeatedly calling Nixon from his backyard telling him ‘my city is burning down’ and not getting through. The DHS set up C&C at the Drury Inn, using some nasty tactics, and eyed & eared the whole thing back to DC for the white hut to ‘astroturf’.

Then things got deadly (and fiery) when Joshua DeAndrea’s name got leaked.

“If you feel like the police needs to know when to get ready, don’t you think the community needs to know when to get ready,” said Michael McPhearson, Don’t Shoot Coalition co-chair and executive director of Veterans For Peace.

He was one of the teachers who stood in the middle of a learning circle with a diameter that spread across the entire gymnasium of the Greater St. Mark Church early Saturday afternoon.

More than 150 protesters came to ready themselves for what they are already expecting to be a non-indictment against Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown on August 9 – and the unrest they are certain to ensue.

For the second day in a row, demonstrators have gathered for insight on how to maintain peace and calm with emotions on high – guided by The Don’t Shoot Coalition and other organizations as an extension of Ferguson October.

“I urge as many white people as possible to go to jail,” said protester and organizer Lisa Fithian. “It’s really important for you in here to see what it feels like to lose your privilege.”

“That’s right” and “uhh huh” echoed across the gym as Fithian delivered cold hard facts about how she feels the atmosphere will change when demonstrators return to the street following the grand jury’s announcement.

“There are going to be white people in the community who come out armed that don’t support our cause,” Fithian said. “If you are a white person and you see a bunch of white people coming, then you need to meet them at the front of the line.”

Applause came from black and white attendees. As was the undivided attention that was given to Fithian and McPhearson, the resolve and resilience among the group was striking.

Fithian reinforced the importance of them working as a team to get in the mindset to keep their wits and a peaceful mindset in the worst case scenario.
“We have to make a choice to take a risk,” Fithian said. “If we’re prepared and organized, there is nothing they can do to stop us.

And even as she mentioned the potential for arrest and bodily harm by opposing forces – the group seemed up for the challenge of creating a narrative of peaceful demonstration in the wake of a non-indictment.

“The key to all of this is that we have to be organized and prepared – if we are not organized and prepared we will suffer defeat and be divided.”

In a development that may portend extended disruptions, veteran street organizer Lisa Fithian, previously dubbed “Professor Occupy,” recently trained Ferguson protesters how to “simulate chaos.”

Fithian is a legendary organizer who once announced she seeks to “create crisis, because crisis is that edge where change is possible.”

She was one of the luminaries of the Occupy Wall Street movement and was a lead organizer in the infamous 1999 Seattle riots against the World Trade Organization that descended into violence.

To say that Lisa Fithian is just a paid-professional protester would be to undersell her radical accomplishments. True, she’s received compensation from the SEIU and the SEIU’s labor federation Change to Win as a consultant. However, her war on the free market goes well beyond that. Last year, Fithian helped the UAW shut down Bank of America branches and, now, is helping the #OccupyWallSt protesters wage their occupations all across America.

From James O’Keefe.......

There are three things I value in my undercover reporting team at Project Veritas: tenacity, integrity and brass balls.

The video we’re releasing tomorrow is a product of our undercover reporting team demonstrating these virtues. Our story will break in a major newspaper and people are already talking about it..

Most people, even Conservatives, don’t realize that we are now entering the final phases of Obama’s “transformation”. Strange untimely deaths will take the place of all the character assassinations and life-destroying lie campaigns that have been such formidable weapons of theirs for the past six years. Has anyone read that the number of Muslims entering our borders is surpassing the Latina ones? Heads up is all I’m saying. Bless James O’Keefe for the bravery he’s shown in his short young life.

Every politician we have, both parties, are scared witless to speak any truth that isn’t equivocated to death. How in the world would we ever know the depths of what is happening to our country if not for those like James O’Keefe?

I fully agree. Still there are even detractors here on this thread who minimize and mock his efforts. Disgusting people who dare to call themselves Freepers.
