  • Why Do Rich People Love Quiet?

    <p>New York in the summer is a noisy place, especially if you don’t have money. The rich run off to the Hamptons or Maine. The bourgeoisie are safely shielded by the hum of their central air, their petite cousins by the roar of their window units. But for the broke—the have-littles and have-nots—summer means an open window, through which the clatter of the city becomes the soundtrack to life: motorcycles revving, buses braking, couples squabbling, children summoning one another out to play, and music. Ceaseless music.</p>

    Canadians are joining the Occupy Wall Street movement after plans were unveiled for an Occupy Bay Street event in Toronto and elsewhere countrywide this weekend. And Canadian news outlets plan a full-court press to cover the social media-fueled protests in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal modeled on the Wall Street protest, which kicked off on Sept. 17.

    Protesters with a group called "Occupy Biden" have spent the past week in President Biden's Delaware neighborhood calling on him to declare a "national climate emergency." According to a description for the protest, which took place near President Biden's residence in Delaware, the group said that "nonviolent action" is needed in order to push President Biden towards making changes to his climate policy. On Saturday, the final day of the group's protest, individuals protested on a road near the president's house while members of the Secret Service were nearby monitoring the group.

    A founder of a black police organization said yesterday that he was facing departmental charges for publicly criticizing the city's handling of a terror alert last fall. Eric Adams, a captain who heads 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care, will attend proceedings this week over accusations that his appearance on a television news program in October is grounds for termination, one of his lawyers, Norman Siegel, said at a news conference. On the program, on WCBS-TV, Captain Adams castigated the city for deciding to wait four days before publicizing a Department of Homeland Security warning about a possible terror...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Protesters held a sit-in Thursday at the Interior Department building in downtown Washington and clashed with police as they challenged fossil fuel projects and called for the declaration of a climate emergency. Multiple arrests were reported. An Interior Department spokeswoman said a group of protesters rushed the lobby, injuring at least one security officer who was taken to a nearby hospital. Police and protesters clashed outside the building, and officers used Tasers against several unarmed protesters,...

    George W. Bush reaffirmed his status as garbage last week, for those few cons still in doubt. Bush got up on the 9/11 anniversary and proceeded to demonstrate, again, the essentiality of class in American society. Not “class” in the sense that he is classy; Bush, though it was very important to him to front that he has such class, in fact, has none. No, the “class” that is important to W is social class. He once again chose his country club pals over you and compounded it by issuing a disgusting blood libel against you. That’s his “thank you”...

    "This gap between the 1% and the rest of America, and between the US and the rest of the world, cannot and will not persist," warns renowned trader Paul Tudor Jones during his recent TED Talks speech, as he addressed the question - can capital be just? Hoping to expand the "narrow definitions of capitalism," that threaten the underpinnings of society, Tudor Jones exclaims, "we're in the middle of a disastrous market mania," adding "one of worst of my life." Perhaps most ominously, he concludes, historically this ends "by revolution, higher taxes or wars. None are on my bucket list."...

    Mayor Steve Adler’s Austin is still getting worse. He led the explosion of homeless camping citywide and the defunding of police. Police are leaving in droves, crime is spiking hard, and homeless camping has spread serious blight all over the city. Now that blight is concentrating downtown, thanks to another of Adler’s addle-brained decisions. If you walk or drive around city hall in Austin, Texas, now, you’ll see a new tent city. It sprung up after voters in the city overwhelmingly agreed to reinstate the ban on camping on public land on May 1. Even when camping was legal everywhere...

    Antifa protesters have burned American flags and clashed with cops outside the Federal Courthouse in downtown Portland. The ugly scenes occurred Thursday evening, as dozens of the far-left protesters assembled in the area for a demonstration against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The Courthouse has already been boarded up with plywood after sustaining damage during destructive protests last summer, but shocking video shared to Twitter shows all remaining uncovered windows were smashed during the latest demonstration. .. ...Several other demonstrators set fire to the plywood outside the building, prompting federal agents to deploy teargas and smoke bombs in a bid...

    The neoliberal drift A key question for this year’s conference, which is due to be followed by a second phase in Singapore in May, is whether a new form of globalisation will be developed. There was a free-market form of globalisation leading up to the first world war, then a retreat during the inter-war period. Bretton Woods led to an era of regulated globalisation from 1945 until the 1980s. But since then, the “global elite” has pushed back regulatory restrictions on everything from speculative financial flows across borders to mergers and acquisitions. A new era is required, building on the...

    There are several Democrat/Leftwing groups that have enshrined the word "Occupy" in their name in proud reembrace of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests. Ironically at the moment the Democrat/Leftwing including those from these same groups are insisting that the Occupation of the Capital Building is high treason. Just thought it a good thing to ask them about. Is civil disobedience occupation type protests something that is on one hand to be championed and adored when Leftists do it, but to be condemned as treason beyond the pale if Non-Leftists do it?

    The “October 2011” movement organizer Dennis Trainor tells me that he believes capitalism is “homicidal” and that the U.S. needs a revolution. “This is not a reform movement,” he said. He is part of the illegal occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. The “October 2011” movement is not part of, but endorses the “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began several weeks ago. Although he describes himself as new to professional agitation, Trainor runs the “No Cure For That” website and served as a writer/media consultant for Dennis Kucinich’s 2008 presidential campaign. Kucinich is the Cleveland Democrat perhaps best known...

    Okay folks, thanks to brave Patriot Jesse Morgan's testimony yesterday, we now have a smoking gun that can be traced directly to a specific location where there are obviously corrupt Post Office supervisors. I know there's a lot of mobilized Trump supporters in the Ronkonkoma Long Island area. Not sure if any of them are Freepers here, but hopefully somebody with some connection to them will read this. The Bethpage, Long Island Post Office needs to be occupied by protesters. Same applies to Post Office in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where Jesse Morgan was supposed to deliver all those phony ballots. Here...

    Denver Police were quick to point out that alleged Denver murderer Matthew Robert Dolloff was not tied to Antifa. The domestic terrorist group has been in the news lately following Joe Biden’s declaration that they are just “an idea” and not an organization, so the left wants to make sure the murder of a Trump-supporting veteran is not associated with the violence perpetrated by the “idea.” But new reports are coming in that Dolloff was directly connected with Occupy Denver and Occupy Democrats, two “ideas” that were the precursors to Antifa. Those who fought through the earlier versions of the...

    The hired security guard accused of shooting a protester dead during a Denver rally on Saturday was identified by police as Matthew Robert Dolloff. Dolloff, 30, is being held in connection to a first-degree murder investigation in the shooting, the Denver Police Department announced on Sunday. Family members said the victim was Lee Keltner, a military veteran. Officials said Dolloff has not yet been charged. He is being questioned about the shooting, which was captured on camera. The shooting happened at a pro-President Donald Trump rally that was disrupted by people with Black Lives Matter and Antifa, who had planned...

    As November draws closer, President Trump has indeed adopted a more ominous tone about the election. In speeches and interviews, he complained about “voter fraud” and warns that Democrats will use millions of fraudulent mail-in ballots to steal his second term. A few days ago Bernie Sanders said that he fears President Donald Trump will refuse to leave office if he loses reelection and is calling on Congress and the media to take action to prepare for that scenario now, he said in an interview with POLITICO. “This is not just idle speculation,” said Sanders, pointing to comments the president...

    **SNIP** It’s likely to end badly for the protesters. OccupyWallStreet began in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City’s Wall Street financial district, on September 17, 2011 and ended when they were forced out two months later. It’s also likely to end badly for Joe Biden. How will he respond to the protest? Will he criticize it, costing him the support of the far-left radicals who have captured the Democrat Party? Will he support it, admitting that he is no “moderate” after all? Will he reprise President Obama’s support of OccupyWallStreet, when his president said “The most important thing we...
