Wall Street Occupiers Urged to Target Churches
Oct 17th, 2011 Franky Schaeffer is the son of the late, highly influential evangelical thinker Francis Schaeffer,
who helped shape the modern conservative evangelical movement. The son boasts he was himself a co-founder of the Religious Right. But he since has denounced Christianity as “stupid,” writes bitter tell-all books about his parents, and ferociously attacks conservative religionists as the virtual root cause of all American evils.
A blogger for The Huffington Post, young Schaeffer is now faulting religious conservatives for facilitating Wall Street greed. He’s imploring the Wall Street Occupiers to “protest the root source of America’s tilt to the far unregulated corporate right.” For Schaeffer, the next logical step is to demonstrate “outside mega churches, Evangelical publishing houses, [and] religious organizations that lead the ‘moral’ crusades against women and gays and all the rest.”
Will the Wall Street Occupiers heed Schaeffer’s frenzied call and next park their tents, blankets and anti-capitalist placards in the parking lots of suburban mega churches? It seems unlikely. But Schaeffer’s demand fits with the crazy Left’s sometime fixation on demonizing opponents based on class and religion.
Thirty years ago, young Schaeffer joined his father in critique of the secular Left. Today, he faults religious conservatives for the “insanity and corruption” that plagues America. In 2008, he endorsed Barack Obama and publicly demanded John McCain renounce his ostensibly “hate-filled supporters.” More recently, he’s slammed Obama’s critics as “racists.” All the energy he once channeled into what he derides as “fundamentalist” Christianity is now furiously focused against all the perceived representatives of his parents’ faith.
In his recent appeal to the Wall Street occupiers, Schaeffer accused “Evangelical fundamentalism” of enabling the sinister top 1 percent’s “rape” of the remaining 99 percent. According to his mythology, perhaps based on Thomas Frank’s 2005 book What’s the Matter with Kansas?: How Conservatives Won the Heart of America, evangelicals’ delusional focus on “values” issues beguiles them into voting against their own supposed economic self-interest. Their “bogus (and hate-driven) ‘morality’ litmus tests of spurious red herring ‘issues’ from abortion to school prayer and gay rights” inveigles clueless evangelicals to vote for Republicans “serving only billionaires instead of the rest of us.”
Ecumenically, Schaeffer also tars Roman Catholics as likewise “fundamentalists” who have “delegitimized the US Government and thus undercut its ability to tax, spend and regulate.” So Catholic bishops, like evangelical mega churches, have also tricked their followers into voting against their “own class and self-interest.” Naturally, Schaeffer prefers not to acknowledge that traditional Christians and other people of faith, unlike the dialectic Left, do not typically identify by “class interest.” In contrast with the Left’s materialist obsession, religious believers view the world through the prism of their faith. Not as naïve as Schaeffer insists, traditional religionists have noticed that the supposed champions of their “class” not only disparage their faith’s morals, they also want further to marginalize faith through Big Government’s constant expansion. While people of faith prioritize churches, families, private charities, and private business, the Left pushes for centralization of power in the coercive and unelected federal bureaucracy.
More revealing of his own politics than of the purported beliefs of his targets, Schaeffer explained that “fundamentalists” had stigmatized government as “evil” and “satanic” because it allows abortion and gay rights. Accordingly, these otherwise progressive “God-fearing folks will always vote for less government and less regulation because ‘the government’ is evil.” These fools equate Wall Street with “freedom” and government with “tyranny.” Incoherently, Schaeffer also surmised that Evangelical and Catholic “fundamentalists,” in keeping with their Puritan witch-burning and Spanish Inquisition heritage, seek “fusion of state power and religion through the reestablishment of the ‘Christian America’ idea of ‘American Exceptionalism.’” So they apparently think government is both “satanic” and ordained by God, in Schaeffer’s telling.
Naturally, Schaeffer also faults these aspiring theocrats for supporting Israel, and therefore preventing Middle East peace. And he compares American “fundamentalists” to Iran’s mullahs, though the Iranian theocracy, which exists in fact rather than just his imagination, does not merit nearly as much condemnation. Schaeffer explained: “If you can get Americans to worry about the Bible and not fairness and justice then you have handed a perpetual victory to Goldman Sacks (sic) and company.” Not very strong on facts, he claimed one percent of the population has more wealth than the other 99.
Schaeffer pours on the venom thick. The Religious Right, “as alien as the Taliban,” relies on the “not-so-bright” who dare to doubt global warming and who think “hating” America is patriotic. They are also apparently racist, wanting private education so as to exclude non-whites. Evidently Schaeffer is not very familiar with the demographics of most parochial schools. Religious conservatives have “stalled and perhaps destroyed the Obama presidency.” Their achievement in the 2010 congressional elections was not democracy but a “putsch.” And the “timely destruction of the economic elites and their religious facilitators begins by calling fundamentalist/Evangelical/Roman Catholic ‘religion’ what it is: a political grab for power.” Schaeffer chillingly warned that the only alternative to their “destruction” is “chaos, decline, oligarchy and theocracy.”
This nearly Bolshevik-sounding plea for “destruction” of class enemies from Schaeffer has all the sophistication of the Wall Street occupiers’ signage without the excuse of their youth. The occupiers seem mostly like young people looking to escape college debts and real world responsibilities. Deranged by contempt for his parents’ faith, Schaeffer, at age 59, seems seduced by his own demons of paranoia and hatred. He ignores that evangelicals in particular are strongly associated with Main Street, not Wall Street, are inclined towards the Tea Party with its own critique of bailouts, and in general have a historic distrust for centralized power that is deeply rooted in Anglo-American history.
Solid Evidence That Occupy Wall Street Is a Communist Movement
Run By Socialists Who Wish To Bring Down The Free Enterprise System
October 18, 2011
Is Occupy Wall Street a communist movement? Is it being run by socialists who wish to bring down the free enterprise system? As you will see in this article, the answer to both questions is yes.
Of course many of the people participating in these protests want nothing to do with either socialism or communism.
Many of the protesters are simply angry at the big banks or they just want something to be done about the economy. But the truth is that when you take a close look at the “organizers”, the literature and the stated goals of this movement, you see socialism and communism everywhere.
As our economic system crumbles, an increasing number of Americans are coming out of the woodwork and are proudly declaring that they are socialists or communists.
An increasing number of Americans truly believe that the free enterprise system needs to be brought down and that the answer to our problems is to fully embrace socialism and/or communism.
Sadly, this puts Occupy Wall Street in direct opposition to what our founding fathers intended.
If you want to know what these protests are all about, just go down and visit one of them.
The following is what Charles Gasparino of the New York Post found when he recently took a trip down to Zuccotti Park….
It’s not an overstatement to describe Zuccotti Park as New York’s Marxist epicenter. Flags with the iconic face of the Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara are everywhere; the only American flag I saw was hanging upside down. The “occupiers” openly refer to each other as “comrade,” and just about every piece of literature on offer (free or for sale) advocated socialism in the Marxist tradition as a cure-all for the inequalities of the American economic system.
Yes, there are millions upon millions of Americans that are upset with the big banks and with the rampant corruption down on Wall Street.
But is “socialism in the Marxist tradition” the answer to all of our problems?
Of course not.
During his visit, Gasparino also picked up some very interesting literature….
Maybe the worse-spent dollar I have ever spent in my life was on a propaganda broadsheet titled “Justice,” which advocates “Struggle, Solidarity, Socialism.” On the front page of the newspaper-like document, beneath the headline “Capitalism: System Failure,” was a tease for a story on the economy and how “influential business economist Nouriel Roubini” recently said how “Karl Marx had it right. At some point, capitalism can destroy itself.”
But it is not just in New York where you find this sort of thing.
For example, a stunning report from a visitor to Occupy Charlotte was recently posted on the Economic Policy Journal blog….
An organizer began reading a script in the way that a minister reads wedding vows, with pauses for the audience to repeat each phrase. The first order of business was an agreement that organizing committee names would be drawn from a hat. The inner circle were known to each other in advance. I could not see the hat, or the people drawing the names, so I can’t say exactly what happened, but I can conjecture.
In any case, organizers were selected from the hat. The very next order of business, I kid you not, was “All socialists will huddle at such-and-such area.”
Silence. The rest of us are wondering, OK, are they going to suggest any other groups? Next announcement: organize in small groups any way you want.
The self-identified socialists huddle. By some miraculous coincidence, the anointed leaders are all socialists.
This is what you will find in city after city. Most of the “leaders” somehow happen to be socialists of one sort or another.
It should be no surprise that Communist Party USA has officially endorsed the Occupy Wall Street protests.
In fact, communist leaders have been speaking at many of the protests. For example, a spokesperson for the national board of Communist Party USA spoke to Occupy Chicago the other day. As you can see from the video posted below, his remarks were greeted with tremendous enthusiasm….
In the video, you can also see protesters marching with Occupy Chicago that are carrying communist flags and that are wearing shirts promoting Communist Party USA.
In this next video, an “organizer” of the Occupy Greensboro protests explains what this “movement” is really all about….
***”We’re the International Socialists Organization… Our goal is to raise political consciousness to build a revolutionary party and work for a revolution here in the United States.”***
***”The problem is capitalism… We need a new system that’s going to put people first and put profit back to the wasteland of history.”***
***”Socialism is the solution. We need a society where everything is produced to meet human needs and wants rather than to make money off of them.”***
The truth is that the goals of the Occupy Wall Street movement are not some great mystery. They have put them out there for everyone to see.
Yesterday, I reported on “The 99 Percent Declaration“, which details the tentative demands of this protest movement.
The following are some of the things that they want….
*Much higher taxes on the wealthy
*The government to provide health care for all Americans
*The EPA to be given the power to shut down any corporation or organization that is damaging the environment
*Student loan debt relief
*Immediate passage of the Dream Act
*Mortgage debt relief and for all underwater and foreclosed mortgages to be bought and refinanced at interest rates of less than one percent
*An immediate one year freeze on all foreclosures
Basically, what the protesters are demanding is a much larger federal government that takes from the wealthy and that gives lots of stuff to them for free.
An increasing number of Americans believe that things such as housing, college education and health care are “rights” that the government should be required to provide for them.
This is especially true among our young people. We have trained them to have an “entitlement mindset”, but we have not trained them to work hard for what they want out of life.
Yes, our economy is a complete and total mess, but the answer is not socialism.
Our nation once had an economy that was the envy of the entire globe. Our free enterprise system was at the heart of that economic boom.
We need to get back to what once made this country great. We don’t want to go down the path that so many other nations have gone down in the past.
One more thing about the Occupy Wall Street protests….
It is curious that approximately three months ago a high level CIA operative began working inside the New York Police Department.
Nobody seems to know exactly why he is there.
His job title with the NYPD is “special assistant to the deputy commissioner of intelligence“.
The timing of all of this is more than a little unusual.
Does this have any connection to the Occupy Wall Street protests?
Did the CIA know that the protests were coming?
It all just seems a little too convenient.
We live in a very strange world.
As the economy falls apart even more, America is going to become very angry. Millions of Americans are going to be searching for a way to express their frustrations.
Many of them will be pulled into protest movements that are run by socialists and communists without even realizing it.
We are a nation that has already been highly socialized, and yet we are going to see protests all over the nation calling for even more socialism.
Today, U.S. households receive more money directly from the U.S. government than they are paying to the government in taxes.
How much farther do we want to go?
Socialism is not the answer.
Communism is not the answer.
Hopefully America will wake up and will remember what once made us so great.
***** UPDATE *****
For those of you that would defend this movement, I hope that you are aware of some of the things that are going on at these protests. For example, I love my country and I would never utter the words that some crazed lunatics from Occupy Portland are singing in this video.
OWS sends sharp anti-Jew message
October 21, 2011
The dark scourge of anti-Semitism has reared up at OWS protests across the country, DANGER!
Demoncrats, including Obama, are aligning themselves with the protests.
The protesters generally want rich people to pay much more in taxes and they hate big banks. But they are also targeting Jews, shouting Zionist Jews need to be run out of the country.

OWS - Railing Against Reality
Protests broke out again in Europe from Rome to London last week. The OWS demonstrations in New York have spread.
This follows this summer's riots in London and flash mob incidents in U.S. cities.
Wall Street protests rail against a small elite who makes a lot of money but arent upset over the mega-salaries of actors, athletes or AlGore.
None of these worldwide protests are over the denial of food, shelter, clean water or basic medicine.
None of these protestors discuss the effects of 2 billion Chinese, Indian, Korean and Japanese workers entering the globalized capitalist system and making things more cheaply and sometimes better than the West. (Can you spell overblown union wages in USA?)
Federal and state budgets are near bankrupt. Countries like Greece and Italy face insolvency. The U.S. government resorts to printing money to service or expand entitlements.
Rise of Islamic Global Jihad
I believe this leads to the Beast - 666 - system of Revelation 13
CNN headline read - Will Kdaffy death boost Obama?
See, that is why I put out ZionsCRY news! Truth and facts are irrelevant in world media!
Obama's popularity plummets, he kills Osame bin Laden - supposedly.
It plummets again and he kills Qdaffy .. maybe.
The death of Libyan leader Murmur Kdaffy was a foregone conclusion once Obama launched that war in Libya.
Obama told Egypt leader Mubarak to go, and he is gone, and Egypt (and Israel) are now FAR WORSE OFF.
Obama told Syrian leader Bashar Assad to go and he is in major trouble.
The body of Osama bin Laden was supposedly dumped at sea, but I'd heard in 2002 Osama was dead.
Dont rejoice at Kdaffy's 'death' - if he is dead, and dont believe news reports, they all say what the world dictator(s) tell them to say and care nothing for truth or fact.
I dont think it is a stretch to say -
the world news media are the ENEMY of Christians and truth.
Derivatives Crisis Could Destroy Global Financial System
27 October 2011
Derivatives are financial instruments used to hedge risks or for speculation. They are derived from stocks, bonds, loans, currencies and commodities, or linked to specific events such as changes in the weather or interest rates.
The key word there is speculation, a bet.
USA More Leveraged than Europe
While the world is awash in liquidity, no one seems to notice that it’s actually in the form of leverage or cheap debt, NOT real capital or equity.
The US banking system as a whole is leveraged at 13-to-1. While this is not horrible relative to Europe’s banking system (more on this in a moment),
these levels still mean that an 8% drop in asset values wipes out ALL equity.
Then you have Europe’s banking system, which is leveraged at 26-to-1. Anecdotally, this is borderline Lehman Brothers (30 to 1).
At these levels, even a 4% drop in asset prices wipes out ALL equity.
Japan’s banks are leveraged at 23 to 1. France’s are 26 to 1. Germany is 32 to 1.
You get the idea.
However, worse than any of these the US Federal Reserve.
With $2.8 trillion in assets and only $52 billion in capital, the Fed is leveraged at 53 to 1. Yes, 53 to 1.
My question is: if the Fed prints money for itself… is it “raising capital?”
More to the point… if that was true why doesn’t the Fed do it? Why maintain these leverage levels?
Only Bernanke can know, but the rest of us should feel a very serious shudder when we consider that THE bank that’s supposed to bailout the world,
fix the problems plaguing the financial system, is in fact even more leveraged that most of the institutions it’s helping.
Yes, stocks are rallying now based on the view that more QE 3 or monetary easing is on the way, but they’re missing the BIG picture here.

The Lucis Trust behind Occupy Wall street [UPDATED]
I know it sounds crazy, but what i found out about this movement it's just unbelievable.
I will try to make this short.
On the 15th October 2011 begun the worldwide action. For the first time in history, upwards of 15 million people in sixty countries marched together for a "global change". Their official website is: http://15october.net/
Someone decided to find out who owns that domain name by visiting this site: http://who.godaddy.com/ (This is a database with a searchable list of every single domain currently registered in the world).
As you can see from the printscreen i took, before the 18th October the registrant was
Well... Who the hell is she? I googled her name and i couldn't find many infos, but i found out that she is Francisco Carrion Mena (permanent representative of Ecuador, chairman of the special committee at the UN) 's wife. Okay. I thought i had no more things to discover. The UN were behind this movement, that's it.
Well, i was wrong... While reading a book ("Freemasonry and Secret Societies" by Epiphanius, edition "Controcorrente" April 2008, page 620 ), i found out that the unofficial Lucis Trust's address is: 866 United Nations Plaza New York, and this information appears just on two books: the one i was reading, and on "Die Netzwerke der Insider" by Peter Blackwood.
Wait a minute.... This must be a joke.
...but here it comes the unbelievable part: On the 19th October, the WHOIS Information is been changed!!! In fact the registrant now is:
15111 N. Hayden Rd., Ste 160, PMB 353
Scottsdale, Arizona 85260
...as you can check here:
New infos about this "global movement": Let's see WHO support them...
George Soros expressed sympathy with OWS (Occupy Wall Street).
Let's read something about him: George Soros is a member of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), the Trilateral Commission (a super-elite cabal of 300 international power brokers who practically rule the world), the Bilderberg Group and he is founder and chairman of the Open Society Foundations. He is known as "the Man Who Broke the Bank of England" because of his US$1 billion in investment profits earned in a single day (16th Sept 1992).
Mikhail Gorbachev says "Occupy Wall Street" signals an emerging New World Order.
Don't forgeto who is Gorbachev: a premier world Leader and boasts members at the highest levels of the United Nations bureaucracy, a member of the Lucis Trust (as reported by the EIR, Executive Intelligence Review di Washington).
..and guess what? His "Millennium Forum" is located in 866 United Nations Plaza, Suite 120, New York (as you can see here).
Here’s what Gorbachev said during on October 20th at Lafayette College. Exactly! The same address of the Lucis Trust...
“We are reaping the consequences of a strategy that is not conducive to cooperation and partnership, to living in a new global situation. The world needs goals that will bring people together. Some people in the United States were pushing the idea of creating a global American empire, and that was a mistake from the start. Other people in America are now giving thought to the future of their country. The big banks, the big corporations, are still paying the same big bonuses to their bosses. Was there ever a crisis for them? . . . I believe America needs its own perestroika. The entire world situation did not develop properly. We saw deterioration where there should have been positive movement.
My friend the late Pope John Paul II said it best. He said, ‘We need a new world order, one that is more stable, more humane, and more just.’ Others, including myself, have spoken about a new world order, but we are still facing the problem of building such a world order…problems of the environment, of backwardness and poverty, food shortages…all because we do not have a system of global governance. We cannot leave things as they were before, when we are seeing that these protests are moving to even new countries, that almost all countries are now witnessing such protests, that the people want change. As we are addressing these challenges, these problems raised by these protest movements, we will gradually find our way towards a new world order.”
Even economists support protesters (LOL). An anti-banks protest supported by big economists? Let's report some of them:
Mario Draghi: an Italian banker and economist who has been governor of the Bank of Italy since 16 January 2006. He has been designated to succeed Jean-Claude Trichet as President of the European Central Bank by November 2011.
Richard D. Wolff: an American economist, well-known for his work on Marxian economics, economic methodology, and class analysis.
Paul Robin Krugman: an American economist, professor of Economics and International Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, Centenary Professor at the London School of Economics, and an op-ed columnist for The New York Times. In 2008, Krugman won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his contributions to New Trade Theory and New Economic Geography.
Jeff Madrick: a journalist, economic policy consultant and analyst. He is director of policy research at the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis, The New School. He was formerly finance editor of Business Week Magazine and an NBC News reporter and commentator.
Joseph Eugene Stiglitz: an American economist and a professor at Columbia University. He is a recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (2001) and the John Bates Clark Medal (1979). He is also the former Senior Vice President and Chief Economist of the World Bank. He is known for his critical view of the management of globalization, free-market economists (whom he calls "free market fundamentalists") and some international institutions like the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. He is one of the most frequently cited economists in the world.
One more thing: the participants' slogan is "We are the 99%" (referred to the difference in wealth between the top 1% and the other citizens of the United States).
Isn't it ironic that they have "rich supporters"? I list two more "supporters":
Russell Simmons: an American business magnate as the co-founder, with Rick Rubin, of the pioneering hip-hop label Def Jam, and creator of the clothing fashion lines Phat Farm, Argyleculture, and American Classics. He is the third richest figure in hip-hop, having a net-worth estimate of $340 million as of April 2011.
Jimmy Wales: a co-founder and promoter of the online non-profit encyclopedia Wikipedia and the Wikia company. He is a member of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School and the advisory board of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, the Board of Directors at Creative Commons, Socialtext, and Hunch.com, and former co-chair of the World Economic Forum on the Middle East 2008. By the World Economic Forum he is one of the "Young Global Leaders" of 2007.
Occupy Wall Street is now on wikipedia (what a coincidence).
Well... do you need more evidence?
November 2, 2011 Wednesday
These occutards hate America. There is no unifying theme except they hate America.
Occupy Wall Street protester defacates on burning U.S. flag while onlookers cheer and film the act.
An unholy alliance is emerging between Islamists, socialists, communists, Nazis, anti-Semites, sexual deviants and anarchists, all with America-hating liberals cheering them on.
Some want a sex-change operation at taxpayer expense, some think Jews control the world, some want someone else to pay back their college loans.
Nobody involved seems to have a job. They represent a privileged class in America that has the time and money necessary to camp out in major urban areas making a nuisance of themselves while the rest of us work for a living.
FEW recognize just how dangerous this new unholy alliance is to the future of America.
NYC arrest records: Many Occupy Wall Street protesters live in luxury
November 2, 2011 Wednesday
Many “Occupy Wall Street” protesters arrested in New York City “occupy” more luxurious homes than their “99 percent” rhetoric might suggest, a Daily Caller investigation has found.
For each of the 984 Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested in New York City between September 18 and October 15, police collected and filed an information sheet recording the arrestee’s name, age, sex, criminal charge, home address and — in most cases — race. The Daily Caller has obtained all of this information from a source in the New York City government.
Among addresses for which information is available, single-family homes listed on those police intake forms have a median value of $305,000 — a far higher number than the $185,400 median value of owner-occupied housing units in the United States.
Some of the homes where “Occupy” arrestees reside, viewed through Google Maps and the Multiple Listing Service real estate database, are the definition of opulence.
Using county assessors and online resources such as Zillow.com, TheDC estimated property values and rents for 87 percent of the homes and 59 percent of the apartments listed in the arrest records.
Even in the nation’s currently depressed housing market, at least 95 of the protesters’ residences are worth approximately $500,000 or more.
The median monthly rent for those living in apartments whose information is readily available is $1,850.
Of the 984 protesters arrested, at least 797 are white. The median age of “Occupy” protesters taken into custody is 27 years.
Ten demonstrators were arrested more than once. Most of the arrests, it should be noted, were for nonviolent offenses.
The arrest intake documents show that arrestees came to New York from all over the country but particularly from the Northeast.
Criminal charges ranged from “loitering while wearing a mask” and “failure to move along” to “violent behavior” and other more serious charges such as “assault 2 [second-degree assault] caus[ing] physical injury to police [or] firemen.” There was also one charge of “sex abuse 3 [third-degree].” Hundreds were arrested on October 1 for obstructing traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge.
While it would not be fair to conclude that the arrested protesters are fully representative of a movement that is not completely understood, this information forms the most complete snapshot yet of the demonstrations’ more militant participants.
It also reinforces the persistent critique of protesters as entitled, upper-class agitators with few legitimate grievances.
London’s Daily Mail newspaper recently highlighted signs of wealth among the throngs in Zuccotti Park.
“Sleeping beside the hardcore activists are increasing numbers of wealthy students turning up to make the most of the party atmosphere, drugs and free food,” reporters Paul Bentley and Micela McLucas wrote in October. “While they dress down to blend in, the youngsters’ privileged backgrounds are revealed by glimpses of expensive gadgetry or the absent minded mention of their private schools during heated political debates.”
“I think that it’s accurate to say that our supporters come from all backgrounds,” Patrick Bruner, the operator of OccupyWallStreet.org, a website dedicated to help organize and spread information about the protests, told TheDC when asked about participants from wealthier backgrounds. “That said, a (non-random) survey on our site revealed that our visitors literally are the 99% in regards to economic realities.”
The national median home value of $185,400 reflects U.S. Census statistics from the years 2005 through 2009, the last year data were available.
TheDC was able to estimate home values and apartment rents for 659 of the 972 residences. Thirteen were in university dormitories; six were post office boxes; four were addresses in foreign countries. Many addresses proved to be nonexistent, and a few were not provided to police.
And the same people are who living in luxury are the same ones calling out the Jews, Zionists, bankers, etc as evil??!
Woe to you scribes, Pharisees, HYPOCRITES...

Radio host challenges George Soros, radicals to answer for protests
Will power-brokers behind the scenes dare have their machinations exposed?
November 06, 2011
New York's WABC Radio host Aaron Klein has accused seasoned radical activists and organizations of being
behind the Occupy Wall Street protests and has invited those very activists, including billionaire George Soros himself, on his program to explain their ties to the anti-capitalist movement.
On his radio show and in his WND reporting, Klein has documented how those radicals are allegedly helping to direct the Occupy movement.
Klein is dedicating his entire program next week to interviewing the activists in question. "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" is broadcast Sundays, 2-4 p.m. ET.
Klein publicly challenged the activists to appear on next week's program to face questions about their ties to the Occupy movement.
OCCUPY WALL STREET
Violence, theft, and public friction come to the Occupy Wall Street protests
Criminals at a crime scene, who knew?
From New York City to Oakland, Calif., the Occupy Wall Street protests have increasingly come to represent more than opposition to big banks and fiscal dishonesty. In the past few weeks, the protests also have had the unintended consequence of increasing conflict concerning civil freedoms and public safety.
In Oakland, protesters faced off with police officers in a heated protest on Oct. 25 in an attempt to reclaim as a campsite a plaza in front of City Hall. Bay area police officers launched beanbags and sprayed tear gas at protesters who tried to re-enter the Frank Ogawa Plaza, which was closed on Oct. 25 for sanitary cleaning. Police said they responded defensively to protesters who threw rocks, bottles, and cans of paint at them. They arrested more than 100, with one serious injury reported.
Some say the Babylon in Revelation is Rome, the Roman Catholic church cult.
Some say it is the apostate Laodicean church - all denominations (demonations).
Some say it is America, specificly New York City.
Veteran shot self at Vermont Occupy encampment
circumstances surrounding the shooting were unclear
All the MORE TRAGIC being November 11 is Veternas Day to honor all vets.
November 10, 2011 Thursday BURLINGTON, Vt.
A 35-year-old military veteran apparently shot himself Thursday at an Occupy Wall Street encampment in Vermont's largest city,
fellow protesters said. A hospital spokesman said later the man had died.
Deputy Chief Andi Higbee said the public was not believed to be at risk after the 2 p.m. shooting at City Hall Park in Burlington.
People who knew the victim in the encampment said they were sure the man, who said he was a veteran, had shot himself. Police would not characterize the circumstances of the shooting.
"This person has clearly needed more help than we were capable of giving him here at this park," said Emily Reynolds, a University of Vermont student and a leader in the local Occupy movement.
If government provided better mental health services, she said, "this probably wouldn't have happened."
The shooting took place in or near a tent at the encampment. Higbee said police were trying to notify the man's family; his name was not released. He is believed to be from the Burlington area.
Mike Noble, a spokesman for the Fletcher Allen Health Care hospital in Burlington, confirmed later Thursday that a man who had shot himself at the park had died. Noble said he could provide no other details.
Higbee told reporters in the park it could be several hours before the protesters were allowed to return to their tent and that the shooting made him question whether the protest would be allowed to continue.
"Our responsibility is to keep the public safe. When there is a discharge of a firearm in a public place like this it's good cause to be concerned, greatly concerned," Higbee said.
The encampment has been in the park since Oct. 28. The city had threatened to evict the protesters because the park is closed from midnight until 6 a.m., but city officials made special accommodation for the protesters.
Almost two dozen tents have remained in the park, and the number of protesters has varied.
