STUNNING: When a Single Image Cuts to the Core of an American Injustice

"Every day people in the Occupy movement are fighting big banks to keep families in this country from being foreclosed upon. Fighting to keep another person from being homeless, and from another housing unit becoming vacant. Fighting to change the narrative, to make this national blight more visible, more known.

And that's what spreading the above image can do. Make this injustice more known or understood in a way the mind-numbing statistics cannot, perhaps inspiring…

Koch Bros. Mouthpiece Tells Occupy: “Forget the 1%, Go After Granny”

"The uproariously named “” has a video out entitled “Why Geezers Are the True Enemy of the Occupy Movement” featuring Veronique de Rugy. In the video, Ms. de Rugy explains to young occupiers that the elderly have done deplorably well in the preceding few decades. This makes Nonna and Nonno the natural enemies of the young and should therefore be stripped of Social Security and Medicare. In her defense, she does stop short of suggesting they be taken to the nearest…

Challenge – Is America the New Axis of Evil?

"We have met the enemy.  It is stupidity.  We can’t afford it anymore, no more fear, no more lies, no more greed.  Eventually, the way we are going, do I have to finish this?  There is going to be a price to pay for betraying America."

Where is this 'shared' sacrifice we keep hearing about?

"I love talk of "shared" sacrifice by well-heeled assholes who have forgotten what it's like to sweat their finances. Because nothing says "I'm sharing in your pain" like fighting efforts to repair our nation's debt by having those who can actually afford it carry the load, while pretending that no one else is "sacrificing."

We see this with the well-compensated media elite, we obviously see it with the selfish-asshole segment of the one percent. And, of course, we see it…

Drug war hypocrisy: drug trafficking's big money benefits Big Brother and corrupt banksters

"The hypocrisy of the war on drugs is outrageous when compared to the amount of drug trafficking that benefits the CIA and international banking system. The son of a convicted notorious mobster, John Gotti Jr, when asked in court if the family still dealt drugs cracked, "No, we can't compete with the government."

Today in Afghanistan, American troops have been seen guarding poppy fields used to make heroin. Those fields were all but wiped out by 2001…

Iran, Gold and Oil - The Next Banksters War

"Remember the real reason why Moammar Gadhafi is dead. He dared to propose and started creating an alternative currency to the world reserve U.S. Dollar. The lesson learned in Libya is now ready for teaching in Iran. Forget all the noise about going nuclear, the true message is that the banksters rule and nation states serve their ultimate masters."

Roadmap to Redressing Economic Terrorism in America: We Weren’t Going to Stay Stupid Forever

When you heard news stories about the Federal Reserve making secret loans to the crooked ”bail out banks” that weren’t authorized by congress, they were lending out the $7.2 trillion “Wanta dollars” ordered paid by President Obama and the Federal Courts.

If you wondered how the Federal Reserve, that couldn’t print a few billion dollars without authorization from congress, lent out trillions that technically didn’t exist with no permission at all and there…

The Original 99% Movement: Top Military Man Invokes the Occupy Movement in 1933

"Top Military Man Invokes the Occupy Movement in 1933.

General Butler invoked the 99% movement, telling the veterans:

We are divided, in America, into two classes: The Tories on one side, a class of citizens who were raised to believe that the whole of this country was created for their sole benefit, and on the other side, the other 99 per cent of us, the soldier class, the class from which all of you soldiers came. That class hasn’t any privileges except to die…

Occupy Wall Street mentor Adbusters issues latest tactical briefing. Chicago. May. Occupy.

"Vancouver’s Adbusters Magazine sent the initial callouts to occupy Wall Street, to be the natural successor to unfinished revolutions in Tahrir Square and Madrid. Quickly enough it escaped their grasp. Adusters has issued two dozen “Tactical Briefings” since before September 17 to advise the growing rebellion, to be interpreted coming from a valued mentor, albeit an outsider, technically now, a non-occupier. The distinction was never more obvious than when one of their briefings…

Beyond the Banks

Beyond focusing attention on the dysfunctional Financial System, we need to focus attention on:

  • Occupy Executive Greed:

    paying themselves hundreds, or even thousands, of times what ordinary workers earn, whether they succeed or fail;

    stealing the fruits of workers' increased productivity;

    exploiting & intimidating workers;

    stealing workers' rights. 
  • Occupy Corporate Fraud:

    off-balance-sheet accounting to hide corporations' real…

America After Dark: Desperate Meth Heads, Rampant Human Trafficking, & Millions Of Criminal Predators Searchng for A New Victim

"When the sun goes down every night, America becomes a very frightening place.  There are communities all over the country where drug dealing, human trafficking and gang violence have gotten so out of control that authorities don't really know what to do about it.  In America tonight, thousands of meth heads will break into homes as they desperately search for enough money for another hit.  In America tonight, thousands of children will be sold for sex at truck stops and on…

Five steps to end global tax evasion

"The world is calling for a bold vision of economic justice to counter dislocation and austerity. But since the global economic crisis reasserted its icy grip after a brief Keynesian impasse, world leaders have failed to deliver one. The inability to articulate a narrative beyond a long, hard march out of economic malaise ultimately caused by politicians' and regulators' failure to adequately supervise the financial system is resulting in a widespread disillusionment with…

Zombie banks are dragging Ireland into the ground

"Just like many African nations, Ireland's debts must be cancelled or a 'financial bomb' will go off in its most deprived communities.

Activists more accustomed to campaigning against the debts of countries like Zimbabwe, Egypt, Ecuador and Indonesia were instead outside the Irish embassy this morning. Dressed as zombies, we hoped to shed some light on the so-called "zombie banks" whose debts continue to drain resources from an Irish public sector that is being slashed to…

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
