Three Tea Party supporters sit down with
Three Occupy activists to see what gives....


The rough-edged result is not typical mass media.

It's very raw; very human --and often very funny.

The Nigerian Gov. backed down on their doubling of fuel prices.
Why the climb down?

Because the Nigerian Occupy movement - though focused initially
on the fuel issue -- was fast turning into a revolution!

Millions were on the streets. Many under the Occupy banner.

In the aftermath of the giant protests, there is now a nation-wide
discussion of elite corruption and income disparity in the country.

Win. Win.

Nigerian Minister of State at the Grand Hyatt hotel, New York, NY.

Democrats file 1 million signatures for recall of Wis. reactionary governor Scott Walker

http://bostonherald.com/news/national/midwest/view/20120118democrats_file_1_million_signatures_for_recall_of_wis_governor

MADISON, Wis. - Democrats and organizers filed petitions Tuesday with more than a million signatures as they sought to force a recall election against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker _ a massive number that seems to cement a historic recall election against him for later this year.

It would mark the first such gubernatorial recall in state history and would be only the third gubernatorial recall election in U.S. history. Organizers Tuesday also handed in 845,000 signatures against Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch as well as petitions against four GOP state senators, including Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau

These kinds of things that still give me hope - the Mass Strike is still on and even expanding. Do away with reactionary union busters like Scott Walker, good riddance. Remenber, the first thing both Mussolini and Hitler did upon siezing the power is to destroy all Labor Unions as the only mass organisations capable of resisting the Oligarchy.

If Obama can be reelected that will be good for all reactionaries and TSA employed.

Kings County Foreclosure Court shut down by song! #occupybk #ows#o4o #foreclosures #j26 yfrog.com/mq9hsz

...over 25 Occupy Wall Street protesters have been arrested today at a foreclosure auction protest in Brooklyn this afternoon. According to John Knefel, over 80 people crammed into Brooklyn Supreme Court to sing songs and blockade the foreclosure sales, and it seemingly worked: "4 cops just said the auction was cancelled. #ows now being forced to leave. could it be a ruse? #blockade." Check out a video of protesters singing in the courthouse here, and below.

As people are being asked to leave the courthouse, Knefel just tweeted that confusion still reigns: "Update: just spoke w someone who was in court before, said that the auction DID keep happening. #ows #blockade...Court officer I just spoke w wouldn't confirm one way or the other. Said to ask people leaving what they "felt" happened." OWS protesters have been involved with trying to help homeless families hold onto foreclosed homes around Brooklyn since late last year.

According to Anonymous Oakland, the blockade was at least partially successful: "Foreclosure auction in Brooklyn disrupted, 26 reported arrests, only 1 of 4 homes sold. #blockade #OWS." We'll update as information becomes more clear.

one would expect such a thing to occur... might have been from the start. aren't the guys who were behind the other movements around the world invloved with OWS anyway? they have an entire working plan they syndicate.

this is not to say the majority of members participating aren't honestly in this for the right reasons.

Economist and author Prof. Michael Hudson talks to Max Keiser
about Anglo Irish bonds; Wall St. corruption; economic collapse in
the Western nations and his work with the the Occupy movement.

You gota love Michael Hudson: Austrian School of Economy summarized it in one sentence: ď they hate the Government, they want centralized planning in the hands of bankers...

..you eliminate the Government regulations, you let the criminals take over, centralized planning in Citibank, JPMorgan, Bank of America... That's insane but thatís what they believe...

..If i come to you at the ATM and hold a gun to your head saying "Your money or your life, that is not market transaction...

That is Dr.Paul economical religion.
