    SHTF Plan - Liberty Headlines ^ | 2-10-2017 | Paul Chesser
    This report was originally published by Paul Chesser at Liberty Headlines. Leftist agitators are escalating their protests into intimidation and violence on campuses in public venues across the country — against elected officials, public figures, and fellow students — and now some lawmakers are saying, “Enough!” The scale of the liberal resistance ranges from the national to the local. Politico reported yesterday that Republican members of Congress fear violence as they plan to repeal Obamacare. On Inauguration Day former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, while visiting Washington, was forced down an alley and boxed in against locked doors after an...
  • Paroled Felon Sentenced To 35 Years For Occupy Oakland Shooting, Sex Assault

    OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A paroled felon was sentenced Thursday to 35 years and eight months in state prison in connection with the fatal shooting death of a man near the former Occupy Oakland encampment in November 2011 and for a sexual assault that occurred five days later. Issac McDaniels, 32, of Oakland, had faced a potential life term for sexually assaulting a woman on 13th Avenue in Oakland on Nov. 15, 2011, but prosecutors dropped a kidnapping charge against him last November in exchange for him pleading no contest to four felonies. The charges are forced oral copulation and...
  • Oakland’s Radical Occupy Teachers Finally Reveal Their Goal: ‘Abolish Capitalism’

    01/12/2013 6:28:41 AM PST · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | January 12, 2013 | Kyle Olson
    At least the teachers of Occupy Oakland are finally being honest about their political agenda. They’re openly calling for an all-out abolition of capitalism. The Occupy Oakland Education Committee – comprised of public school teachers from the Oakland, California school district – has renamed its publication “ClassRoom Struggle” and its platform TEACH, which stands for “Transform Education, Abolish Capitalism and Heal.” Finally the radical teachers have acknowledged what we’ve been saying all along: they want to end capitalism and replace it with a socialist economy, quite possibly enforced by a totalitarian form of government. And what, precisely, is their strategy?...
  • Divided Occupy Oakland revisits City Hall (Anarchy&Anniversary time already?)

    For a few moments last fall, West Oakland businessman Chris Hollis was filled with idealism as he attended Occupy Oakland's first gathering outside City Hall to protest an economic system he felt benefited the few to the detriment of the many. But within minutes, amid a mix of families and students, Hollis witnessed some participants stray from the focus on Wall Street and hurl vitriol at police. And within weeks, others would riot through downtown - and then justify their violence. "In an insanely short amount of time, they managed to turn what was basically a great movement for everybody...

    OAKLAND -- A flier disseminated downtown is urging people to bring bats to next Thursday's Occupy Oakland anniversary protest, not to smash bank windows, but to "beat the (expletive)" out of anarchists and vandals. The flier asks residents to "stand up and defend the great city of Oakland" and specifically calls for violence against "black-clad" Caucasians that "use our city landscape as a canvas for their divisive and violent message." No one has taken responsibility for one-page post, which leaves no contact information. It claims to be from a group calling itself DOOM -- Defend Our Oakland Movement.

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | August 4, 2012 | Demian Bulwa
    Protesters smashed a large window at President Obama's re-election campaign office in downtown Oakland late Friday night, tore down a nearby fence and vandalized cars, according to police, witnesses and video footage. Staffers and volunteers were inside the Organizing for America office at 1714 Telegraph Ave. when it was vandalized after 9 p.m., but no one was hurt, said a staffer who declined to be identified. The office is a joint effort of the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee. When the window was broken, well over 100 people had joined what began as a rally against the city's...

    OAKLAND -- Three Occupy Oakland protesters suspected of stealing an Oakland woman's wallet and making offensive remarks about her perceived sexuality were charged Friday with robbery and committing a hate crime, both felonies, authorities said. Michael Davis, 32, Nneka Crawford, 23, and Randolph Wilkins, 24, all of Oakland, were charged with the felonies by Assistant District Attorney Paul Hora. All remain jailed at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. Bail for Crawford and Wilkins is $105,000 and Davis is being held on $100,000 bail. Other possible suspects are being sought by police, said Sgt. Randy Wingate, the lead investigator. Among the...

    Gunfire on the left. Gunfire on the right. And a gaggle of protesters dead ahead shouting: "Police are bastards" and "F- the police." While Occupy Oakland protesters rant on and on about the brutality of the Oakland Police Department, brutality has been occurring all around them. From Thursday to Monday, 15 people were shot in the city in unrelated incidents. And Oakland police weren't responsible for any of those shootings. Five of the people who were shot died. Perhaps Occupy Oakland should plan a march to protest all the violence in our city - including their own. Because in Oakland's...
  • Occ. Oakland lunatics incite 15 year old to murder his adoptive parents and the media whispers it

    They couldn’t connect this murder to the TEA party movement so we didn’t hear much about this story. A middle aged couple, she a physician’s assistant and he a prison psychologist, who had repeatedly argued with their 15 year old adopted son over his refusal to stay away from the violent lunatics of Occupy Oakland, was apparently murdered by the ungrateful punk last weekend. The cause and effect here is glaring. A foster child exposed to the crazy anarchistic conduct of “adults” at Oakland’s Occupy encampment was a perfect receptacle for the hateful bile spewed out by the loathsome thugs...

    The hits keep on coming for the #Occupy criminal movement. The Obama-endorsed radicals have put together quite a record of accomplishment: - 9 deaths, 5 found dead in tents, One found dead after 2 days - 2 murders - Tens of millions of dollars in damages, layoffs, vandalism, law breaking - Multiple Rapes - Thousands of arrests - Public masturbation - Feces - Child molestation and baby abuse Now this… An #occupy radical strangled his parents and stuffed them in the back of the family’s PT Crusier. SFGate reported, via FOX Nation: Friends and relatives said Susan Poff and Robert...

    As an American flag burns at Occupy Oakland, the man capturing the video recites the following: "I pledge allegiance to a flag of the imperialistic, capitalistic dictatorship. And to the plutocracy for which it stands, privately owned central bank, under the Jews. With inequality and injustice for the 99." For video, click link.

    After two months of the Occupy movement, Oakland residents should adopt their own chant. We are the 98.5 percent. The 1 percent control the vast majority of the nation's wealth, possess influence in the highest halls of government, and profit from the misery of others. The one-half percent have taken to the streets. Then there's everyone else: the veritable Silent Majority who work and pay the bills and the taxes that make the wheels turn. Even though both sides of the conflict claim to have our backs, neither group, it seems, has our best interests at heart. Oakland Mayor Jean...
  • Inside Oakland Bubble, All Free Speech Isn't Equal

    For all their whining about the "police state" and the city's failure to respect their "First Amendment rights," Occupy Oakland activists have managed to flout the law with regular impunity. Somehow demonstrators have managed to turn Frank Ogawa Plaza into a tent stew and shut down parts of the city in a so-called general strike Nov. 2, and still they think they're victims who have been deprived of their free speech rights. But if they want to see what it's really like to fight City Hall, they should talk to Walter Hoye. Hoye's offense was to walk up to people...

    Proposal for a Coordinated West Coast Port Shutdown, Passed With Unanimous Consensus by vote of the Occupy Oakland General Assembly 11/18/2012: In response to coordinated attacks on the occupations and attacks on workers across the nation: Occupy Oakland calls for the blockade and disruption of the economic apparatus of the 1% with a coordinated shutdown of ports on the entire West Coast on December 12th. The 1% has disrupted the lives of longshoremen and port truckers and the workers who create their wealth, just as coordinated nationwide police attacks have turned our cities into battlegrounds in an effort to disrupt...

    This one's bound to catch the attention of the anti-Occupy sect: porn company Dirty Boy Video, which (we're guessing) specializes in videos of boys who are dirty, used a tent at in the middle of Frank Ogawa Plaza as the set for a recent video shoot. As Le Fag reports, along with the promotional stills: "this video could be a nice historical document in years to come, should the movement prove more than a flash in the pan." Obviously, there's a trailer, which is obviously Not Safe for Work or public Wi-Fi, of the "hipster twink themed" piece of performance...

    At an Occupy Wall Street offshoot event, an Occupy Oakland protester had the following to say: (Headline: 1,000 at old Occupy Oakland camp to discuss future) "If they (police) take over the camp, we're going to reoccupy," Ronald "Rasta" Jones, 31, an Oakland resident who had lived in the Occupy Oakland camp since its first day, Oct. 10, said before officers moved in around 5 a.m. to evict people. "Our objective is for them to keep spending money. ... We're not going to stop." Jones has let the cat out of the bag. Occupy Oakland/Wall Street is the Cloward and...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 11/13/11 | Carolyn Said, Chronicle Staff Writer
    Three events planned for Oakland's historic Rotunda Hall were canceled this month. Four cafes abutting Frank Ogawa Plaza say customers are reluctant to visit, and they've cut employee hours. Several merchants on or around Broadway, including the Oaksterdam marijuana empire, say business is down. Meanwhile, two other cafes at the plaza say sales are better than ever. And a block away at City Center Plaza, the midday flow of office workers grabbing lunch is undiminished. As Occupy Oakland enters its fifth week, the encampment's impact on neighborhood businesses appears to consist largely of reduced sales - and a few increased...

    The Bay Area has come down with a serious case of Protest Fatigue. The 99 percent of Northern Californians who want to go about their business are being jammed with protests and forced to pay for shutdowns imposed by the 1 percent of activists who don't know the difference between free speech and free camping. There are so many protests here that the group No Justice No BART had to call off a planned demonstration on Nov. 2 in order to accommodate activists planning to take public transit to the Occupy Oakland general strike. When President Obama came to San...
