Occupy Camps Torn Down Across Nation

Occupy Camps Torn Down Across Nation

Occupy Wall Street protesters are calling for a “day of mass action” to occur on Thursday after police raided camps in a number of cities including Oakland, Calif., and New York early this week.

Police in riot gear in New York cleared Zuccotti Park in a pre-dawn raid on Tuesday, arresting about 200 protesters and tearing down tents and structures throughout the area, according to MSNBC.

“Protesters have had two months to occupy the park with tents and sleeping bags,” said New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “Now they will have to occupy the space with the power of their arguments.”

City officials say that the protesters will be allowed back in the park, which has been cleaned by sanitation workers, but will not be able to set up a tent city like the one the movement has inhabited for the past two months.  A New York court is currently working to determine whether the no-tent rule is valid, because it was declared by city officials after the protest began.

Uncle Sam Has Been Lying to You

President Obama says the economy is improving—but take a look around. Unemployment is still at record highs… real estate is still at record lows… and banks are still failing across the country. What’s really going on?

Don’t expect Uncle Sam to give you any answers. The government has been distorting—and in many cases deliberately covering up—the seriousness of the situation to protect its own interests.

To get the truth about the financial crisis—and discover the simple steps you need to take in order to survive it—click here now.

In Oakland, 32 protesters were arrested in a similar raid, the second on that encampment in the past month. Officials there said that, unlike the violent riots that resulted from the police crackdown earlier this month, the destruction of the encampment resulted in no major incidents or injuries. Police say that there will be a 24/7 law enforcement presence to ensure that no more tents are set up.

According to Alternet, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan said that 18 cities were consulting with one another prior to the Occupy crackdowns.

    Understanding the Occupy Wall Street protesting.

    Do you know the park in NYC that the Wall Street protesters are occupying?

    It’s Zuccotti Park.

    Did you know this park is not owned by the city of New York ?

    It is owned by Brookfield Properties.

    And Brookfield Asset Management recd an Obama dept of energy loan guarantee of over $160 million within 10 days of approving the take over of the Park. Brookfield is a Canadian company with assets of 70 billion. Google it! (i have!)It is all on their website – and WHY is the US Taxpayer guaranteeing a loan to a VERY wealthy Canadian company?!?! This stinks to high heaven

    Who was just hired by Brookfield Properties as an attorney?

    Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

    Who sits on the board of Brookfield Properties?

    Mayor Bloomberg’s live in girlfriend.

    Now, guess what company just received some of the last of the Obama Stimulus $$$$$$$.

    Thaaaaaaaaaaaat’s right, Brookfield Properties.

    Isn’t life great in America!

    • Lastmanstanding

      Nothing is surprising to many of us at this point…Rest assured that an event will trigger one of the most unbelievable occurences in America since the Revolutionary War. It will not be pretty.

      Those of you who believe that it just can’t happen in America are foolish beyond belief. Actually things have already begun, look around and open your closed little mind. Take a moment to consider what if things get (more)violent. If you are unable to feed and protect yourself, your family and your friends…you have NO chance.

      • Brian

        Agree 100%…IF you don’t think it can happen here and I do understand that(it’s called the Normalcy Bias), things are going to be very bad for you and your family…

      • Vagabond

        lastman I CAN and will protect whats mine and my family. I spent over 20 years in the military and am well versed in the use of weapons. yes I am one of those ex military perssonnell obama and his minions worry about,

        • Lastmanstanding

          God bless you vagabond…we are many and have the will of liberty and freedom…”don’t go down without one helluva fight.”

    • wandamurline

      I am glad to see you passing this information along as I have been doing. Let me give everyone a little knowledge on the Cain accusations of “sexual misconduct” … notice that is what they are calling it because they have absolutely no proof of sexual harassment.
      Sheila O’Grady, who was Richard Daley’s (exmayor of Chicago)Chief of Staff who now works for the Illinois Restaurant Association is the one who hacked into NPR’s personnel records and brought this information to guess who? David Axelrod, you know who he is…he’s the Obama’s muscle man. It gets better….Sharon Bialek, the blond shown with the progressive, liberal attorney, Gloria Allred, just happens to know David Axelrod, and she lives in his apartment building. Are you getting a picture here. Cain is on the rise in the polls, and he is a black man, so he has to be taken down, if by no other way than “ACCUSATIONS of sexual misconduct”…let me stress, accusations…no proof, but with the help of the left winged George Soros owned progressive news media, they have raped him over just like they did Sarah Palin and her 16 year old daughter in 2008. David Axelrod has a history of helping bring accusations of sexual misconduct or wife abuse agains other candidates by having his moles dig into sealed divorce papers…i.e. John Brooks, Blair Hull (2004) and Jack Ryan….all discovered to be false accusations, but it got them dessimitated by the news medias and Obama went on to win as Senator because of it when Obame was at the bottom of the polls. Now do you get the picture? Please share this with everyone in the US, there are skunks in this witch hunt and they point to David Axelrod and Richard Daley.

      • Karolyn

        It doesn’t matter. He’s going down anyway. His poor performance regarding world affairs is his swan song.

        • Marty S.

          Karolyn, for once I agree with you Cain is very weak on his foreign policy.

      • Vagabond

        Wanda anyone with a D in front or behind their name is more apt to be a skunk than not. and it is a shame to disparage skunks by comparing the damned democrats to skunks,

      • USAF VET

        Wanda, if this information is factual, you need to send it to FoxNews, Mr. Cains campaign site, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, and even Bill O’Reilley. I can just imaging what Mark Levin would do with something like this. Forget about CNN, CNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC.

    • Vagabond

      am I suposed to be surprised at anything this CORRUPT bunch of SORRY excuses for humanity does???we have the most dishonest corrupt bunch of SCUMBAGS in washington we have ever had in my 76 years of life on Gods green earth. jimmy carter was sorrier than whale crap but at least he was just STUPID. this bunch is just plain CORRUPT. they all should be sent to prison for 40 years and one day at hard labor 12 hours a day 6 days a week,

      • firefight

        Better make that 7 days a week,Vagabond. I don’t believe even God would have them on the 7th.

        • USAF VET

          Firefight, you took the words right out of my mouth. Right on.

    • Lisa

      Instead of occupying Wall Street. Why doesn’t the WHOLE country empty out their accounts and NO ONE pays any loan payments. What can they do if the WHOLE country does it at the same time. They will get nothing from no one. That will make them listen, you have to play at their own game. It’s money that talks to them. They are not listening to anyone in the park and no results have come from this action yet. So, take the money OUT and don’t pay anything.

      • USAF VET

        Wrong Lisa, if they really wanted to do what is right, instead of complaining about the banks, every one of them should go to Washington DC and yell at the Obumski administration, and Barny Frank/Chris Dodd. They are the ones responsible for most of this mess,along with the Liberals in Congress. It’s not the banks because they don’t make the rules, it’s those ignorant DC’ites that have messed this country up, not Wall Street, of the Banks.

  • Charles

    While free speech is part of America, let us at least be kind and considerate in this freedom. I believe Mr. Obama could have done this, or at least assisted in this, with only a few words. Maybe like, “You do not represent 99 percent of the American people.” May G_d Bless America!! Random acts of kindness is/are another way action can be taken

  • http://aol.com sean murrey ILLIniois

      • dave hall

        the simple truth is that we, as americans, have simply become spoiled. if you are willing to get an education, or work a ton of hours, and take great personal educated risk, america is awesome. if you decide to hold your hand out, then the rest of us are eventually gunna run out of money. we are in the situation we are in due to electing people who will give us something for nothing, and as a result, we are now getting… the results of bad economic and political choices.
        there is a strong desire for us to go towards a european style of socialistic country, and this at a time where europe is finding out it doesnt work…
        time to wake up and smell the starbucks folks.

      • eddie47d

  • anastasia beaverhouser

    there is nothing that surprises me anymore-anything coming from the government that we now have is nothing more than evil, no good intention is heading our way from them. Americans need to wake up-especially democrats-who just follow what they are told without looking it up..and finding out WHO is involved in all of the treachery going on. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  • Alex

    Whatever the fate of the Occupy Wall Street Movement or its many camps, even the simple sheeple of the American populace see clearly through the Republican plan of hurting their families in hopes of the dire economic situation falling onto the lap of President Barack Hussein Obama.

    The whole fiasco has blown up in the face of the GOP, as witnessed by the slapdown of Robber Baron tactics in Wisconsin and Ohio. Additionally, the GOP is hopelessly out of touch with the people on taxes—-overwhelmingly, EVEN amongst registered Republicans, the people want the wealthy to pay their fare share. Why working class Fright Wingers wish to pay more in taxes than their bosses is beyond me, but they have been so clearly brainwashed by the drug-addicted pedophile Flush Limpjaw and the Faux Noose Channel.

    Remember, the reason we are in such tough economic straits is because the Bush/Cheney Regime GAVE UP on finding Osama bin Laden and instead tossed some FIVE THOUSAND of YOUR CHILDREN into the mass grave of Iraq. President Obama did NOT give up on finding those responsible for 911 (besides the Bush Regime who allowed it to happen despite specific warnings) and nailed not only bin Laden but much of the Al Qaeda hierarchy.

    The GOP has left the White House, after Nixon, Raygun, Bush the Older, and Bush the Dumber with the nation in horrible circumstance and laugh as the Democrats try to clean up the mess.

    Many times PLD readers have accused me of ‘worshiping’ Obama, of his being my ‘hero’—such is the trouble with the Conservative mindset—you imagine us all to be in some lock-step, non-critical fog of obedience and that is a real hoot. Obama has been a MAJOR disappointment to the thinking people of the Left. Far from the Marxist or Socialist you fear, Obama is just another American Capitalist leader. Nearly everyone whom I respect, however, is planning on voting for Obama next year—this is because we are realists and the thought of the Reich Wingers putting any more pigs on the Supreme Court is horrifying.

    The Teagagging wave of 2010? It’s history, folks—it will be a shock if the GOP can retain the gains they made. Already, the new Teagaggin’ reps have become the focus of much American anger because of their unwillingness to help put people to work all the while continuing the placating of the rich.

    Nine years of Bush Tax Cuts have not resulted in the promised jobs, but only the feathering of plutocratic nests.

    Ronald Raygun, the dead arms-for-hostages trader showed us that the only thing that trickles down is urine: the Reich Wingers bottle it and call it “Tea”.

    • Eddie

      I don’t know where you got your information from but you need to check your facts. Obama has done nothing but ruin this country since he took office. If you want to live under communism just stay with Obama.

      • Alex

        Boy, Eddie, doesn’t the truth hurt?

        • Sirian

          OK Alex, you’ve spoken, now then – what solutions do you hold for our country that would not have any Marxist/Communist/Socialist leanings? Keep in mind, none of the three systems mentioned have ever worked. They last for a while, the USSR as example, then they fall apart. China is not in the best of shape right now, there are so many more protests happening there than here, but you don’t hear about it on any of the MSM. They too will collapse in the future. So, once again, what is your solution to the problems we have here? Be sure to keep your solutions logical, rational and within the bounds of our Constitution. I know that may be difficult yet our Constitution has kept this country together much, much longer than the USSR and several others.

          • USAF VET

            Alex is a liberal idiot who likes to mix things up. It’s the libs who think people aren’t paying their fair share. Fair share of what may I ask? If it wasn’t for the tax and spend policies of the Liberal Left there wouldn’t be a lot of the problems we have now with the defecit. The Libs think they are Robin Hood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, only what they are doing is stealing from folks who work to make a living, and give to the lazy who just want a handout. Our country can’t keep going like this and expect to survive.

        • firefight

          Axel, What truth would you be talking about. Judging by your post above, you don’t know anything about the truth. You are supporting the group that will ultimately be taken down. This is the group that want to destroy this nation by issuing in a socialist form of government. History has taught us that this form of government only works to serve the elite and completely destroys the elements that have created great nations. Is this what you really want? If so, I ask you to leave this country before those of us who really love America get overly pissed at those of you who want to destroy America. It could get really ugly.

If a civilian thinks they are so much better than we are, then it is time to put your money where your mouth is and enlist. Go to Afghanistan, Uganda, or Iraq under Obama bin Laden.

  • Donald

    Obviously a coordinated effort by the cities involved to suppress freedom of speech and assembly. All they have to do now when any group decides to protest is to declare a state of emergency or a health hazard and send in the cops. So much for freedom of speech and assembly. Night has fallen on America.

    • dan

      Yes Donald, i think the images posted of police in riot gear facing off against American Citizens is a sign of things to come. Whether you agree with the OWS protestors or not, they are doing what more of us should be doing….letting those in charge (be it government or big money) that we are not happy with the current state of America and damn near at the end of what we will put up with.

You seem to be so wise and knowlegable,so where are your brilliant insights as to how to make change. Protest is a first step to create change when dealing with the Utopians that WE ALL put into office. If you have a better plan or method….please share.

        • Bus

          The difficulty the protestors are having is determining just what to protest. The problem is obviously government policies as the government has abdicated its role of maintaining competition within the business world…But they can’t seem to want to bite the hand that feeds them. They want to complain about their student loans (which they willingly accepted) but hope the sugar daddy govenment will come along and bail them out of their responsibilities.
          Personally I hope they enjoy their time in their corporate made tents and sleeping bags while they beg for money from the morons on the street…The hypocracy is a bit hard to take serious, don’t you think?

    • dan

      Fellow Americans,

    I see two sides fighting here. Those that actually know the truth and those that don’t. The funny thing is that those that don’t know the truth are in full attack mode.

    The laws have not changed appreciably in the last 25 years and there are some that feel that they do not have to obey the laws. Why is that?

    The only correct theme in the whole thread here is that America most likely will not and can not recover from the current financial situation.

    • dan

      “The laws have not changed appreciably in the last 25 years and there are some that feel that they do not have to obey the laws. Why is that?” Because as elected officials they feel they are above the law.

  • jerry sweet

    oh i dont want any of the problem makers to escape and its not benny hinn,tbn,or any of the above mentioned religions.they are just that religions.Jesus is a personal relationship.religions are mans attempt to be spiritual without obeying God and His will.it started in the garden of eden and continues today.the names have been changed but the message is always the same.when tom brokaws (GREATEST Generations) book came out,i am one of the biggest fans of the generation that went to fight ww2,he forgot to put in there ,tho they fought and died with valor,they came home and did’nt teach us the so-called baby boomers about Christ and his hatred of SIN! so we grew up and became hippies,and as our churches became vile we now have them running the country and their kids now are protesting what their hippie mothers and dads are doing.only in america.i love my country and at times look at old glory flying and shed tears as i watch my beloved nation die,we are in the beginning stages of death thros and so iam glad someday i will live forever with God Almighty in heaven.why not follow me,i mean him,hes asking,let him in!!

    Just heard on the news that the protesters are threatening to burn down New York City Thurs. 11/17/01. With matches provided by Obama, Pelosi and Bloomberg?

    It’s a cryin’ shame what’s going on in the USA today, I think, and many on all sides have lost it. There’s frustration the likes of which has not been known by the younger generations, so they don’t know how to cope. However, in my opinion, there’s a lot to bitch about: no jobs, lost equity values, education loans, government surveillance heretofore never experienced that leaves a lot of people unsettled while no one on the political horizon seems to have workable answers–most are clueless, I think, or in the pocket of some special interest(s). So, what’s gonna happen? More social unrest, more rip offs by corporations and their high-priced executives, more top and low level crime, and more government repression as we see happening with the OWS crowds, which had a good idea that went south real quick.
    People’s voices need to be heard, but from what I observe, if you don’t have the right kind of money, you won’t be heard. Personally, I think if the public had some real leadership with sound advice that could lead us out of this valley of darkness we’ve been in for decades, maybe there could be hope. Right now, I think we’re on our way to doomsday, however it will happen. So have a Happy Thanksgiving everbody!

    They are still viable and not going away.

    I just got back from Wal mart where I purchased a bag of food to put in their boxes to help the poor have a thanksgiving meal. Wouldn t it be nice if all those protestors did something like that, something to actually help those who need food instead of their drugs, sex, music ect. Maybe instead of fighting the police, who by the way are only doing their jobs, they could collect stuff for the poor with the holidays coming..you know, Share the Wealth.

    By the way reports say that many of NYC protestors come from out of state so let me explain something to those of you not familiar with New Yorkers. We are a mixed bag of nationalities and religions in NY but we stand together when our city and people are threatened. That bond of standing together grew even stronger because of 9/11 so New Yorkers will not tolerate your nonsense about firebombs and burning their city down…they will grab you and believe me, when the cops arrive you will be thankful to see them!

    • eddie47d

      You are partially correct in that most New Yorkers in the city are from other Countries and other States but that is the way it’s always been. So your reply about OWS being out of stater’s is not very true and it seems like the police are doing their share of the damages and maybe more so. Every state in the union has OWS demonstrators so why would they head to NY?

      • USAF VET

        That’s a good question eddie47d, why don’t you ask some of them why they went to New York. I’ve heard them saying they came from Florida, and some of them came from out here in California, and from a lot of other areas. They call themselves the 99%ers, but they aren’t but about .1%.

  • Karolyn

    Has anyone seen the picture of the 84 year old 4′ 10″ lady who was pepper-sprayed by the cops in (I think) Portland? She has vowed to keep coming back.

    Alex back a ways , all that drivvel about supporting your scum bag leader ,paying your fair share of taxes crap. how many of that vile trash doing the (ocupying)knows what paying taxes even means. their whole roll in even being there is to somehow get money given to them from the tax payers hand.with the exception of social security recipients, which by the way paid into the fund all their working life,and a small percent of those on honest disability.The biggest percent are wellfare suckers that wont work if there was jobs to be had. Obummer knows how easy it is to buy stupidity for votes.His stimulus bill was earmarked for votes. just watch these elections and see how easy it was for him to buy suckers. Awfully cheap in fact.

      Lyle, What about all those scum bag, entitlement grabbers sitting in the White House?
