It is high time for the living to get tough

"It is high time for the living to get tough, for toughness is indispensable in the struggle to safeguard and develop the life-force; this will not detract from their goodness, as long as they stand courageously by the truth. There is ground for hope in the fact that among millions of decent, hard-working people there are only a few plague-ridden individuals, who do untold harm by appealing to the dark, dangerous drives of the armored average man and mobilizing him for political murder. There is but one antidote to the average man's predisposition to plague: his own feelings for true life. The life force does not seek power but demands only to play its full and acknowledged part in human affairs. It manifests itself through love, work and knowledge.”
― Wilhelm Reich, Listen, Little Man!

Black Lives Matter and the democrats


Guest blogger, Triniti Wallace.

Damn, calling out Black Lives Matter as vying for positions in the Democratic party.

Such a tremendous platform and ALL these capitalists have to do is "affirm" Black lives are important?? No liberation, end police brutality, no support for murdered LGBTQ people's no ECONOMIC LIBERATION?

Psht. Sounds like something Obama would say.


I had to come back on this from discussing this with my sister. Thank you for the empathy and wisdom.

This movement is a BEGINNING. As well as a CONTINUUM. We should demand our leadership affirm Black lives AND MORE.

Also these few people making jell-o pudding "demands" are not the only representatives of ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬ . Those of us who desire revolution and liberation have a task of sharing this movement.

It's important to INVITE people. Calling out the bullies comes with supporting the survivors.

In order to invite and organize the oppressed and working class we MUST oppose the bosses and people, collectives, organizations and whomever; that uses our LANGUAGE of revolution to seduce us back to the submission of capitalism.

It's important to support # Black Lives Matter but I oppose the Democrats, Republicans and ANY capitalist parties. They will never be in the interest of Black lives. The capitalist parties $upport individual Black pocket$ and once a year our collective vote$ but NO NOT our lives.

We stand with organizations around the WORLD who affirm Black lives in deed and action, in poverty for free universal health care for free for the ENTIRE UNIVERSE, without shaming our gender or who we love or fuck our how short our skirts swish.

I read once from Pan y Rosas the Democratic Party influence in the labor bureaucracy leads us on the road to defeat because it's "progressive" stance NEVER QUESTIONS CAPITAL. That's the ceiling. Not touching.

The Democrats will NEVER blame the rich. Just individual rich people. Siding with them means 1 guy goes to jail and they pat themselves on the back for being peaceful, for serving justice.

The Democrats aren't serving justice they are helping themselves to capitalists dollars through the hopeful resilience of the working class and oppressed.

I have to remind myself not to be so quick to let my frustration of capitalism focus on the ideas of the minority within the BLACK LIVES MATTER movt.

I'm sorry comrades. That is my mistake. I will continue to support the revolutionary current within this burgeoning movt. And though I'm limited I will continue to be vocal.

Support Black Lives. Break from the capitalist parties.

More democrat co-option of Occupy

Some who have thrown in with Bernie Sanders (meaning, who have thrown in with the democrats who destroyed us) say they are with Occupy. I recognize at least one name of a staunch democrat who sought to use the Occupy movement for the democrats, blocked me on facebook when I DARED challenge the dems...and Mark Provost, of US Uncut, who told me he gladly works with "occupy democrats", the pro-Obama PAC for the democrats who have absolutely =nothing= to do with Occupy aside from stealing our name to build votes for the democrat party (check their Facebook "about" page). Pure, sick co-option with willing players.

These people were not Occupy, or are not. Only a Declaration from the NYC GA speaks for Occupy, and democrats and the billionaires have made that impossible. There can no longer be any consensus. Occupy has no leaders or representatives. That was part of the point: each voice is equal, matters equally. No leaders.

The NYC GA clearly states: "Occupy Wall Street is a people’s movement. It is party-less, leaderless, by the people and for the people. It is not a business, a political party, an advertising campaign or a brand.  It is not for sale."

"Any statement or declaration not released through the General Assembly and made public online at should be considered independent of Occupy Wall Street.

We wish to clarify that Occupy Wall Street is not and never has been affiliated with any established political party, candidate or organization.  Our only affiliation is with the people."

Statement of Autonomy


Occupy Wall Street @OccupyWallStNYC
We are non-partisan. Both major parties have sold out the American people. #OWS

At one time Occupy held the national narrative. WE were the power. We knew we could do it, that we didn't need "them", that they had all sold out the American people. They then fought back with endless robocops and media smearing, as they do to any social movement which might compete with their power. Now, it's no longer a knowing that WE can do it; it's "give our power to them" because they're the only game in town. That's what they do; that's all they do. Destroy competition to force everyone to play THEIR game, in which only the 1% ever actually win. Note that it's an endless push-and-pull which never, ever resolves. That's on purpose. It keeps us always at the throats of the "others", instead of organizing into our own power. Dems will scream YOU WANT REPUBLICANS TO WIN! over and over. Fuck them. They all have to be jailed along with their corporate overlords or this country will die. Democrats are just as filthy a group of power-mongers as the republicans. Challenge them and you'll learn. 

Just go to your local Occupy encampment in a city with a democrat mayor to ask how it's going. Then get with the Iceland Model.

A few more reasons to distrust Obama

Dissent is patriotic. Blind faith is for children and groups who cannot withstand scrutiny (and know fully well they cannot withstand scrutiny, so they demand blind faith).

NOW. Google what I'm about to post because it's all true. Some of what I'm posting are article headlines, to make things easier to find. Especially if you either do not know these things or even worse, disbelieve these clear, easily second-sourceable facts.

Under Obama, the US has fallen to 49th in press freedoms. PFC Manning is in jail for revealing Bush's war crimes. Edward Snowden had to flee the country to reveal NSA spying upon Americans and the world. Obama reversed NSA restrictions in 2011 and in 2013 went on Leno to say "There is no spying upon Americans". He recently reversed more NSA restrictions in the "CRomnibus" bill. He stated that his administration would be amazingly open and transparent and just this week declared that the white house doesn't have to grant FOIA requests. Obama is executing civilians via drone in 8 or 9 countries with whom we are not at war, with neither trial nor representation. He extended Bush's "patriot act". Only a couple of days after NSA spying was allowed to expire, Obama sent lawyers to reinstate it. He signed 82% of Bush's tax cuts for the rich into permanence in the "fiscal cliff' bill. He's extended Bush's Iraq and Afghanistan invasions. He's extending Bush's plans in the middle east (Syria being an main Bush target heard via General Wesley Clark's youtube speech "seven countries in five years"). In 2013 Obama said we must bomb Syria because chemical weapons. In 2014 Obama said we must bomb Syria because ISIS. He bombed Libya without Congressional approval, an act both he and Biden called UnConstitutional when Bush threatened to do it. He's also bombed in Yemen, Pakistan, and Somalia. More countries than Bush. Hillary Clinton's state department brought in 3/4 of the world's arms deals with $100 billion in weapons sales to the Saudis alone, who behead twice as many people a year than ISIS.

Obama just attained a classic aspect of the cautionary tale "1984": Permanent war status.

He can bomb anywhere he says ISIS are. Anywhere. What person in the history of the planet has ever had the power to kill anyone anywhere he wants?


We are experiencing record income inequality under Obama and it's partly because he's helped protect wall street from either investigation or prosecution for their 2008 smash-and-grab involving an estimated $16 trillion dollars. Obama handed over more than $12 trillion of that amount. 95% of new monies generated since then have gone to the 1%. The jobs market has moved to low-paying, part-time jobs. Poverty in America has risen startlingly. There is $1 trillion in student loan debt he has done nothing to change; read Matt Taibbi's articles in Rolling Stone on student loan debt and more. We are experiencing record corporate profits and record low worker's wages. The 5% unemployment statistic is a lie. If you know anything about Obama's corporate-authored TPP, you'll know it's NAFTA on steroids and US jobs will be heading overseas in droves, much less the astonishing empowerment to corporate rights...medication costs will skyrocket.

There is an illegal foreclosure engine in the US, with wall street's blackstone group doing bulk purchases from the banks. Search foreclosure double tracking and foreclosure robo-signing.

There is PLENTY of warranted horror through which to question Obama, much less prosecute. I haven't even mentioned his thrice signing the NDAA section 1021 which through lacking specific wording prohibiting it, provides for the indefinite detention of US citizens with neither trial nor representation (and he sent lawyers to overturn an "unConstitutional" ruling granted to Chris Hedges in Hedges v. Obama). Another recent NDAA crippled the Smith-Mundt act, which prevented the use of literal propaganda against US citizens by the government.

Or his allowing or ordering the militarization and nationalization of police departments through the DHS and bill 1033, which has to be against Posse Commitatus. And either ordering or allowing DHS to seize your personal electronics on a "hunch" anywhere along the border and up to 100 miles inland, smashing the 4th Amendment?

His reaction to the Torture Report of Bush's war crimes? He said "We tortured some folks". Not "We will open an investigation into Bush's war crimes." He said when he entered office he'd scrutinize Bush's legislation and overturn anything unConstitutional. And he lets them WALK despite a torture report indicating actual human experimentation.

Hate Bush? You should. So why does Obama go to such lengths to help the Bush disaster family? And why do democrats not give a shit that Obama completely allows him and Cheney to walk despite having handy a TORTURE REPORT?

Endless "occupy democrats" hypocrisy

occupy democrats treason post
"This cannot be stressed enough."

Photos of some of the brutality done to the real, actual Occupy Wall Street movement. Obama said nothing, did nothing.

The purpose of "occupy democrats" is to use populist and activist goals presented in images to build an engine to elect the wall street shill Hillary Clinton. They don't believe a thing they post excepting that it builds Hillary and the distraction of the false left-right paradigm, which only exists to misdirect attention from the corrupt financial entities who own both parties. They will post feel-good images as well as images stoking anger and mockery at the "other brand" (exactly as do the republicans regarding the democrats; get it?) to build support, which is power. When they've built tens of thousands of supporters they'll roll out the pro-Hillary images and =will not allow discussion= of her extremely clear corruption. You will be used as free advertisement for their wall street candidate, who is raising $2.5 billion in advertisement money... You were teased with free education and higher wages and now you must support those who are diametrically opposed to such, or YOU WANT REPUBLICANS TO WIN or some such idiot dogma...because both parties are owned by wall street and wall street gets paid no matter who is in office. Occupy Wall Street calls out these corruptions; it does NOT work to send them to office! It does not end conversation regarding political and financial corruption, it builds it!

You do not get to challenge "occupy democrats" with clear facts. Quick example; more later in greater detail:

occupy democrats denmark free school

So why is that complete bullshit? Both Obama and Clinton are diametrically opposed:

-It took a genuine socialist mayor to pass a $15 minimum wage amendment in Seattle. It's taken marching and direct action by fast-food and Walmart workers nation wide to gain attention to the minimum wage issue. Obama and Hillary are extremely clearly in bed with the ultra-rich and the corporations who are driving the country's current record low worker wages and record high corporate profits. Even a $20 minimum wage will not effect the rising income inequality and the gentrification engine being used to further it. Corporations are also being allowed to pay exceedingly little into the social safety net and social services such as schools so continuing this also does no good; it allows corporations to continue vampirizing the country without being contested or prosecuted. Allowing the corporations and banks to run riot without punishment and then further weakening regulation does NOT create a reversal of this disastrous trend. 
-In 2010 Obama privatized the student loan process to the government and did not adjust it downward; he's continued raising interest rates and Matt Taibbi says in an 10 year period the US government will earn an expected $184 billion in profits. It's a usurious, for-profit engine directly created by the democrat's leader.
-Obama signed 82% of the Bush tax cuts for the rich into permanence during the "fiscal cliff" scam. Those taxes would have gone into building the social safety net and social services but Obama and Bush have given that money to the very rich.
-Hillary charged the University of Las Vegas $225,000 to speak regarding rising tuition fees. That the money is going to their Foundation means nothing per information collected in my "Reasons to say NO! to Hillary 2016" article. Their Foundation is the seat of crony capitalism and favors given.

Hillary is also raising money from for-profit private prison lobbyists, who prefer young black men to be in prison instead of school.

"Poor people, especially those of color, are worth nothing to corporations and private contractors if they are on the street. In jails and prisons, however, they each can generate corporate revenues of $30,000 to $40,000 a year." HERE

-Free childcare? I don't even know where to begin.
-Free healthcare? "Obamacare" is an insurance regulation written by the republican Mitt Romney. Considering what Obama has allowed the big banks and student loan industry to do, it's no stretch to conclude that Obamacare will result in insurance companies becoming feudal and consuming each other into a small set of "too big to fail or jail" corporations.

Summary: You are having sweet pie waved under your nose to build your allegiance to a group who at their core are only about and will then push austerity and social cuts to help build the rich. You are being used. Period. This is a massive lie of omission. "You were promised a taste of honey and wine; what you got was a waste of money and time." ~Thinktree

You are not allowed to question "occupy democrats". 

As of June 7 2015, I am blocked from commenting on "occupy democrats" page. Note the screenshots at the end of this article that I posted facts and challenged their utter lack of ever questioning Obama regarding his part in their complaints. Their page has an image saying they support the Occupy movement; the real, actual Occupy movement NYC GA Declarations states "We welcome dissent". By their image above, they believe dissent against democrats to be a literal crime against the nation.

Dissent is patriotic. Blind faith is for children and groups who cannot withstand scrutiny (and know fully well they cannot withstand scrutiny, so they demand blind faith). Fox News for democrats. You never, ever have to consider your part in things, or the actions of "your" people in the bigger picture. It must be nice to never, ever have to take responsibility. Such howling irresponsibility is not acceptable in either party. The Occupy movement is a call to responsibility, not to smash dissent!

"occupy democrats" are my best example of how the two parties are exactly alike. They have an image which declares it to be "TREASON", all caps theirs, to ever question Obama. Treason can be punishable by the death penalty. When they posted it, they tagged with text saying "This cannot be stressed enough". Yet they spend endless hours attacking "the other brand" and most certainly would not give a second thought to very loudly publicly questioning a president from "the other brand". Utter hypocrisy. 

If you search them on FB the result states "political organization". If you go to their "about" page, it states they are pro-Obama and are only about adding votes to the democrat party.

To any who have forgotten the core of Occupy and those monsters who co-opt it for political gain, who forget Occupy was formed to fight these very problems and not directly grow them:

"Occupy Wall Street is a people’s movement. It is party-less, leaderless, by the people and for the people. It is not a business, a political party, an advertising campaign or a brand. It is not for sale.


We wish to clarify that Occupy Wall Street is not and never has been affiliated with any established political party, candidate or organization. Our only affiliation is with the people."

 ~The Occupy Wall Street NYC GA Declarations of the real, actual Occupy Wall Street movement. 


Search "occupy democrats" in the Facebook search engine and it says "Political Organization".

Their "about" FB page says:

"Occupy Democrats, a merger of the goals and interests of Occupy with those of President Obama's "new" Democratic Party..."
"Our mission is to Occupy Democrats on Nov.4th, 2014 AND BEYOND by voting in a LANDSLIDE of progressive Democratic candidates! Daily posts re: President Obama's second term , progressives..."
Occupy Wall Street is by name, against Wall Street. Obama is blatantly pro-Wall Street. "occupy democrats" are building votes for the literal and direct enemy of the Occupy Wall Street movement, using our name to do so. They are the worst co-option of which I have ever heard. When I emailed them regarding these issues and Occupy's actual declared position, they "lol'd" me and more, were very snotty. They don't care at all about Occupy, only the democrat party and its power. They are the antithesis of the people's movement.

They are political propaganda using our name and work and everything they post is a punch in the face to those who have suffered beatings and arrest at the hands of the democrats and their robocops while fighting the corrupt financial sector behind both parties. The corrupt financial sector Obama continues to both protect and bail out with our tax dollars.

"Barack Obama is a brand. And the Obama brand is designed to make us feel good about our government while corporate overlords loot the Treasury, our elected officials continue to have their palms greased by armies of corporate lobbyists, our corporate media diverts us with gossip and trivia and our imperial wars expand in the Middle East. Brand Obama is about being happy consumers. We are entertained. We feel hopeful. We like our president. We believe he is like us. But like all branded products spun out from the manipulative world of corporate advertising, we are being duped into doing and supporting a lot of things that are not in our interest."

Chris Hedges: Buying Brand Obama

"occupy democrats" are to social justice media as Obama is to being a feel-good brand using us to build and enable corruption. When you share their propaganda you are building credibility and sympathy for the problem itself. By people who steal social justice activism movements to build power for the corrupt. Please note that the real, actual Occupy Wall Street movement was spied upon, beaten, arrested, attacked, and smashed under a democrat president and majority. The worst attacks against us came in cities with democrat mayors (excepting NYC and Miami). Two peaceful Veterans were nearly murdered in "progressive democrat" Jean Quan's Oakland; the attacks against Occupy continued in Oakland despite her, her staff, and her police chief fully well knowing that crime in Oakland had dropped 19% during the encampment. Quan accidentally leaked participating in a conference call between some 18 city majors to figure out what to do about Occupy encampments.

If you've forgotten what the real, actual Occupy movement faced for merely existing, here is a clear reminder. This is in "progressive democrat" Jean Quan's Oakland. Democrats who steal our name, who attacked us over and over, beat, bloodied, and arrested us for our activism, are the problem itself. Do not miss the part about the Oakland 1% demanding democrat mayor Quan end the encampment. We have evidence of a similar dynamic in Los Angeles. The 1% telling democrats what to do, to attack their enemies. And democrats did so for two years until Occupy was smashed and scattered. Democrats are no different than Republicans. Why would you possibly support them for destroying the movement and stealing our name to build their power, pretending to be us?

"occupy democrats" serve the same purpose for democrats as fox news serves for republicans: feel-good ego strokes to brand members and stoking hatred against the other brand, all the while distracting from the 1% who own and drive both parties. Both are driven through astonishing lies of omission. Left-wing nut jobs! Dividing and distracting the people has never been easier! I had the same experience at "", where I was a member for many years until I saw what the democrats did to Occupy and their own utter rejection of any factual criticism of aren't allowed to truly reject him and to detail why. The resistance you'll meet... Here is their general position, and this is my response. I've been banned from there as well, unsurprisingly.

It's as Noam Chomsky said:

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum....”

You can never question the party line or its representatives. Or you're out. Go question "occupy democrats" why they're not completely and utterly rejecting Hillary Clinton, whose statements and actions are clearly pro-Wall Street, including having stated "Anti-wall street rhetoric is foolish". You won't get them to reject Hillary. They're only interested in what builds their power regardless of whether it is in utter contradiction to their own supposedly stated position. All they'll be able to say, per the Chomsky observation above, is "Which democrat are YOU going to vote for?" And, detest the other brand. Forget about the corrupt economic sector behind it all. Misdirection. Iceland jailed their corrupt banksters and allowed the corrupt banks to fail, wrote off much usurious debt, and wrote a People's Constitution. "occupy democrats" are designed to distract from that beautiful solution.

Why Does Hillary Need $2.5 Billion for Her Campaign?

Clintons And Foundation Raked In Cash From Banks That Admitted Wrongdoing


Wall Street deregulation pushed by (Bill) Clinton advisers, documents reveal


Cables Show Hillary Clinton's State Department Deeply Involved in Trans-Pacific Partnership


“'If it turns out to be Jeb versus Hillary we would love that and either outcome would be fine,' one top Republican-leaning Wall Street lawyer said over lunch in midtown Manhattan last week. 'We could live with either one.'" HERE


Bill Clinton himself signed, with the support of the democrat party and republican party, legislation weakening or eliminating Glass-Steagall, the act which separated investment banking from commercial banking. This act alone is believed to be responsible for the planned smash-and-grab of 2008 which directly led to the existence of the Occupy Wall Street movement.


Their hypocrisy is extremely clear on the Hillary Clinton question...Hillary said "Anti-Wall Street Rhetoric is Foolish", basically a rude gesture to Occupy Wall Street itself...and "occupy democrats" whine over and over about the economy and that bad, bad Wall Street, yet here are multiple images from them clearly supporting Hillary, even for president: Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here...  You get the idea. You cannot unquestioningly support Hillary Clinton and also be against Wall Street. Period. Yet this propaganda engine, often whining about Wall Street and having stolen the name of the Occupy Wall Street movement, are pushing for her to become president. They are not simply liars and thieves, they are extremely dangerous to the country and to the world which has already suffered enough from Wall Street and liars and war profiteers and crony capitalism which would make Dick Cheney blush in comparison...they are only about the power of the democrats no matter what the democrats say or do, and as such empower the corporate and financial monstrosities who are the problem itself. If you read the comments on their anti-Wall Street memes you'll see that the misinformation is working...most democrats loudly blame the republicans for 2008 and beyond.


Under Hillary's State Department, the US took in nearly three-quarters of world-wide weapons sales, with $100 billion of weapons going to the Saudis alone...the Saudis who have donated up to $25 million to the Clinton Foundation and who have given Hillary $500,000 in jewels and who are now waging a proxy war against Yemen for the US. Hillary has said she'd attack Iran, so this puts her directly at odds with their hero Obama's temporary nuclear deal with them. Contradict much? So long as in the end the democrats have power is all which matters. The party of peace? Sure. They're the damn problem. And they're attempting to put Wall Street back in the white house, and bombs in the air...for profit.

Reasons to say NO to "Hillary 2016"

The hypocrisy of their memes: 

Gee, Obama created the situation in 2010...

How odd. In 2010, Obama moved student loans into being a government subsidy. "...the government actually stands to make an enormous profit on the president's new federal student-loan system, an estimated $184 billion over 10 years, a boondoggle paid for by hyperinflated tuition costs and fueled by a government-sponsored predatory-lending program that makes even the most ruthless private credit-card company seem like a 'Save the Panda' charity." READ MORE HERE

 So, Obama set up the US government to profit from student loan debt which currently tops $1 trillion, and he keeps upping the interest rate (while schools keep upping tuitions). So technically, this is Obama's fault. He created and will not alter this intentionally usurious, wall street-ish model. Funny how "occupy democrats" don't mention Obama's part in this. If you only got your news from them, you'd think Obama was an angel or something, when he's clearly part of the problem; the problem Occupy actually fought. Who should be punished, as their image encourages? They demand someone be punished...

Chomsky on student loan debt

"occupy democrats" hypocrisy

 The memes they post contain truth yet they do not care one whit about the content of the memes, because quite often Obama and the democrats are part and parcel with the "truths" about which they complain, such as the one above.

1. Obama unflinchingly signed legislation cutting food stamps by $8.7 billion. Search the article title "Obama offers to cut social security, medicare, and popular programs (again)". He's done nothing to reverse the current $1 trillion in student loan debt while the government acts as a usurious bank...which is no surprise because it's the same debt-based business module Wall Street are using through derivatives to smash cities such as Detroit into "emergency management". Read Matt Taibbi's excellent Rolling Stone articles on student loan debt and Obama's support of this system for more information.

Quote: 2011: "Over the past 30 years, college tuition has grown at 4 times the rate of inflation. Now, with the current debt-ceiling talks, the maximum award would drop by 45 percent. Nearly 1.5 million students would lose their Pell Grants altogether."

Do you know anything whatsoever about the corporate-authored TPP or Trans-Pacific Partnership, which no one actually gets to read, which Obama is pushing via fast-track? Yeah, he's all for the poor and for jobs and for personal rights. GOOGLE IT. 

2. Per the above quote, the natural effect of Obama ignoring increasing costs is a literal cut to education.

3. Single-payer. No one is saying it.

4. Single-payer. Obama isn't saying it.

5. There is zero difference between the parties regarding war. Obama just received permanent war footing with a permanent war budget. He may now bomb anywhere in the world he claims ISIS are active. He's renewed the "patriot act" and has thrice signed the NDAA section 1021 which provides through no clear wording against it, the indefinite detention of US citizens with neither trial nor representation. He sent lawyers to overturn an unConstitutional ruling gained by Chris Hedges in "Hedges v. Obama". He's fine with DHS saying they can seize personal electronics on a "hunch" anywhere along the border and up to 100 miles inland, destroying the 4th Amendment. He's fine with the continuing militarization and nationalization of police departments, which has to be illegal through Posse Commitatus. He's fine with the $1 trillion a year surveillance state, with PFC Manning jailed for whistle-blowing Bush's war crimes, and Edward Snowden having to flee the US entirely upon revealing NSA spying upon Americans and the world. Note that Obama reversed NSA restrictions in 2011 (and again this last winter) and went on Leno in 2013 to say "There is no spying upon Americans". The US has just dropped to 49th in terms of press freedom in the world. Obama is killing civilians with drones in 8 or 9 countries with whom we are not at war. He's extended the Iraq and Afghanisan invasions. He's used drones to execute US citizens abroad with neither trial nor representation (Al-Awlaki's son; might have mis-spelled that). He's part and parcel of the neocon agenda to expand wars in the middle east, if you've seen General Wesley Clark's short talk on youtube regarding "Seven countries in five years", with Iran, Syria, Sudan, and others on their short list. Note that in 2013 Obama declared we must bomb Syria because chemical weapons. In 2014, Obama declared we must bomb Syria because ISIS. Spot the Trend?

Despite his early promises of massive government transparency in his administration, just this week he's declared that the White House is exempt from the FOIA.

He's allowed Bush and friends to walk without investigation of any sort. His only real statement regarding ongoing torture and actual human experimentation describe in the unredacted sections of the torture report was "We tortured some folks". Democrats snarl and froth at Bush and Cheney yet give Obama a complete and utter pass on having done NOTHING to either investigate or prosecute either of them, despite having a handy TORTURE REPORT to use. Utter hypocrisy. Democrats are the party of hypocrisy as it suits them. Permanent war? GREAT if Obama does it. BAD if anyone else does it.

6. Obama unflichingly signed into permanence 82% of Bush's tax cuts for the rich in the "fiscal cliff" bill. He's protected wall street from either investigation or prosecution for the 2008 smash-and-grab of an estimated $16 trillion dollars. Under Obama we see record income inequality with record low worker's wages and record high corporate profits. He's failed to reinstate Glass-Steagall (which Clinton eliminated at the behest of Wall Street) and has failed to end the well-known, years-old illegal foreclosure engine (search "foreclosure double tracking" and "Foreclosure robo-signing") because Wall Street are the ones buying up illegally foreclosed homes via their Blackstone Group. He's done nothing about the massive off-shore tax fraud engaged in by many corporations. And this last winter he unflinchingly signed the "CRomnibus" bill which contains deregulation authored by Citigroup. 
Anyone aware of the literally corporate-authored "Trans-Pacific Partnership" he's been attempting to fast-track without anyone actually getting to read it will understand for whom Obama works. 
Democrats are apparently just fine with all of the above with only a couple of very lonely voices saying anything to the contrary. And if you go to most democrat websites and say these things, despite their being easily searched out using the same internet to which we all have access, too many will greet you with snarling, foaming anger and shouts of "REPUBLICAN!" I've experienced it more times than I can count and it is exactly the same thing republicans do when encountering information inconvenient to their beliefs. 
The two parties are owned by the same corrupt corporate interests and are a distraction to the American people organizing against them. The democrats will savagely defend their power base whenever they perceive a challenge, as will republicans. Most people aren't aware of that because they've not taken part of anything which threatens the democrats. 
The democrat party is an engine of the status quo. It doesn't back what we perceive as positive change unless it is a popular notion which it may ride...into power. "The democratic party is where social movements go to die" is an old saw...Occupy didn't even attempt to do so. The NYC General Assembly Declarations state some interesting items...that Occupy is strictly non-partisan, period. That we welcome dissent. That we are not for sale. Yet here is "occupy democrats", a pro-Wall Street organization claiming both our name and works and also demanding zero dissent against Obama. They don't care about anything but themselves and their power. Same with the republicans. The only true difference between the parties is a measure of the rate of entropy against the people of this country. Any memories of an older, better democrat party should be set aside. This is now things as they are. 



And if not actual hate, at minimum, a mob mentality based upon us versus them with never a thought that both parties are run by the same corrupt financial interests.

occupy democrats against bush

Another one! Even though Obama has extended Bush's Iraq and Afghanistan invasions, destroyed Libya without Congressional approval, bombed Syria (a neocon/Bush target), has attained a "1984" -ish permanent war status (and permanent war budget for the military-industrial complex) and drones in 8 or 9 countries with whom we're not at war...and even though Hillary has stated she'd attack Iran...HATE THE REPUBLICAN!!!!

BUT...never, ever question THEIR golden calf. TREASON can be punished by firing squad, you know.

occupy democrats treason image

They dish it out endlessly and cry if you ever dare do the same. To them, questioning their party is a crime against the entire country. How again are the two parties different? Where again is freedom of speech?

"We welcome dissent." ~The Occupy Wall Street NYC GA Declarations, the real, actual Occupy Wall Street movement. 

I see your "dissent against democrats is TREASON" meme and raise you one Howard Zinn:


and a Kennedy:

occupy democrats treason perfect rebuttal

and a Noam Chomsky:

I don’t bother writing about Fox News,' Chomsky said. 'It is too easy. What I talk about are the liberal intellectuals, the ones who portray themselves and perceive themselves as challenging power, as courageous, as standing up for truth and justice. They are basically the guardians of the faith. They set the limits. They tell us how far we can go. They say, ‘Look how courageous I am.’ But do not go one millimeter beyond that. At least for the educated sectors, they are the most dangerous in supporting power.”

Occupy obviously went too far!

Fucking hypocrites.

Firstly, democrats do not speak for the American people. Occupy did. And democrats smashed us. THAT is the democrats attention.

AGAIN: "Both major political parties have sold out the American people." ~Occupy Wall Street.

"occupy democats" dare "speak" for the people of this country while being a pro-Obama Wall Street Political Action Committee. They are the worst sort of lying liars, privileged, selfish, entitled..they ARE the problem, all the while using the problem to gain power for themselves.

occupy democrats homelessness

Obama, their golden calf, is part of the reason homelessness is running rampant with his protection and taxpayer bailouts of wall street, who are pushing record income inequality and gentrification and an illegal foreclosure engine upon this country. "occupy democrats" are literally the enemy, using social justice media to decry what their people helped create, while building support for the people who helped create the problem they're decrying. Alligator tears.

This one is especially good because it proves the democrats depend upon uninformed voters as much as do the republicans. Obama's policies are in direct opposition to points 2, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 11 and perhaps even more if you factor in the corprorate-authored TPP he's pushing which allows trade with countries who engage in literal slavery.

"occupy democrats" will apparently support anything which builds the democrats regardless of the depth of hypocrisy involved. Left-wing nutjobs! Fox news for dems!

occupy democrats more wall street hypocrisy

occupy democrats liberals v conservative contributions

The above is really great because:

-There were no liberals at the time of the American revolution. The war was fought by revolutionaries. That's a few ticks left of "liberals".
-Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, abolished slavery
-The 8-hour workday, the end of child labor, overtime pay, and the weekend came from the working class rebellions of strikes and direct action against the robber barons, and resulted in workers being murdered by Pinkerton or Baldwin-Felts enforcers. Research the "Labor Movement", the battle of Blair Mountain. People fought and DIED, not voted.
-Women gained the right to vote through direct action, marching, etc.
-Obama cut the number of years people are eligible for the Pell Grant.
-Civil Rights? Occupy was smashed for exercising our civil rights. And just ask people of color about their civil rights.
-Obama has offered to cut Social Security, Medicare, etc. TWICE.
-Obamacare was originally Mitt Romney's plan.

I'm not well-enough educated about the history of the rest of the items but considering the blatant trend shown herein of Fox news level lies/errors, I would not at all be surprised if there were even more.

And people vote for these liars? Liberals, run! They're lying about you!

After that, I was blocked from commenting.

occupy democrats celebrate obama

Others have taken up the fight; only a matter of time until they're blocked as well! And again: The stock market represents his protection and enabling of wall street and their theft of an estimated $16 trillion dollars from the treasury and continued theft of our tax dollars and record income inequality with record low workers' wages and record high corporate profits...existing jobs are for less money. Unemployment figures do not include those who have stopped looking for work and whose unemployment compensation has run out. Does not mention that NAFTA outsourced an estimated 700K to 1M US jobs and that his corporate-authored TPP will be far, far, worse, and includes countries which still engage in slavery. Gas in LA is over $4.00 a gallon. National debt is at a record. Obama also signed into permanence 82% of Bush's tax cuts for the rich during the "fiscal cliff" scam brought about by the national debt. CNN article title from Feb. 2015: "White House: Deficit Will Increase 20% This Year (Despite Record Tax Revenue)". Wars? Obama has sent soldiers to Iraq again despite promises. US troops will remain in Afghanistan thanks to Obama "until the end of 2024 and beyond". He's droning civilians in 8 or 9 countries with whom we're not at war. He's attained permanent war footing and a permanent war budget for the war profiteers and for the Bush empire-building agenda. He destroyed Libya and has the Saudis engaging in a proxy war against Yemen (the US has sold $100 billion in weapons to the Saudis under Hillary Cinton's state department term alone).

Sure, democrats are awesome. Obama's DOJ head used to work for the banks, did nothing about the 2008 smash-and-grab, and upon leaving the DOJ, went back to Wall Street!

About Elisabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders...

''Liberals confirm what we've been saying for a while. Sanders and Warren running aren't about building an alternative to anything. It's about capturing radicalization and funneling it back into the Democrat Party, who will then crush it. Masters of Demobilization and status quo...." ~Douglas Frederick

Update April 2, 2015:

Elizabeth Warren: Give Hillary Clinton A Chance

So, the democrat who uses Occupy rhetoric to gain credibility then tells everyone to vote for Hillary Clinton, the most visibly corrupt Wall Street democrat... "It's about capturing radicalization and funneling it back into the Democrat Party, who will then crush it. Masters of Demobilization and status quo...."

Now Bernie has declared to run as a democrat. Mmm hmm.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So if you lose in this nomination fight, will you support the Democratic nominee?
SANDERS: Yes. I have in the past.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Not going to run as an independent?
SANDERS: No, absolutely not. I've been very clear about that.
"Vermont senator and ostensible socialist Bernie Sanders is playing the sheepdog candidate for Hillary Clinton this year. Bernie's job is to warm up the crowd for Hillary, herding activist energies and the disaffected left back into the Democratic fold one more time. Bernie aims to tie up activist energies and resources till the summer of 2016 when the only remaining choice will be the usual lesser of two evils."

Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders: Sheepdogging for Hillary and the Democrats in 2016

"History has shown repeatedly that reformism is a dead-end alley. There is not one example of a capitalist class simply relinquishing structures of power and the means of production to the working class. In other words, there is not one example of a capitalist regime being swiftly replaced by a socialist one in the absence of direct intervention by the masses in open confrontation with forces of the state.

He’s been dubbed a de facto democrat, casting 98 per cent of his votes with the Democratic Party. His experience in the Vermont Senate belies his close collusion with the party; other Dems refrain from competing for the same seat and Sanders stays silent around the cuts on education, social services and lay-offs of state workers implemented by Governor Peter Shumlin."
Let's face it: Sanders is no alternative 

"I have known Hillary Clinton for twenty five years. I admire her. I respect her. I like her." ~Bernie Sanders HERE

"In this context, Sanders’ commitment to the Democratic Party and American capitalism amounts to a pre-signed declaration of surrender. More likely than not that surrender will be issued within the Democratic Primary when he endorses Hillary Clinton – yet even were he to overcome the odds and succeed, he could not deliver on the hopes of his supporters.

Capital concedes nothing without a threat: a threat to profits, a threat of disruption, a threat of expropriation. Our capacity to win reform is at every moment conditioned by our ability to threaten capital and the governability of the capitalist state. Only an uncompromising and unconditional struggle can wrest victories from the avaricious grasp of the American bourgeoisie.

Sanders, for all his relatively progressive demands, has renounced in advance precisely that unconditional struggle which is most essential to winning even basic reforms under capitalism."
Sanders, the Left and the American Elections

Stein: A Dollar For Sanders Is A Dollar For Hillary

Bernie Sanders is no Eugene Debs

 "BERNIE SANDERS' entry into the Democratic presidential primaries should be seen as his final decisive step away from the democratic socialism he professes to support. He will raise some progressive demands in the primaries and then endorse the corporate Democrat, Hillary Clinton. Nothing changes.

In his opening campaign speech as the party's 1904 presidential candidate, Eugene Debs said:

'The Republican and Democratic parties, or, to be more exact, the Republican-Democratic party, represent the capitalist class in the class struggle. They are the political wings of the capitalist system and such differences as arise between them relate to spoils and not to principles. With either of those parties in power, one thing is always certain, and that is that the capitalist class is in the saddle and the working class under the saddle.'"

Activists Disrupt Bernie Sanders Speech Over His Support For War


"(Howard) Dean said in May 2005 that he considered Sanders an ally who 'votes with the Democrats 98% of the time.'[67] Then-Senator Barack Obama also campaigned for Sanders in Vermont. Sanders entered into an agreement with the Democratic Party, much as he had as a congressman, to be listed in their primary but to decline the nomination should he win, which he did." HERE

"I am glad that the left intellectual and activist Chris Hedges does not support the Bernie Sanders campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination. As Hedges explained in a recent interview on the Ralph Nader Radio Hour, Sanders’ candidacy lends undeserved credibility to the thoroughly corporatized Democratic Party. Sanders has pledged that he will support the corporatist military hawk Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general presidential election. Sanders stirs up legitimate progressive energy and popular anger and then 'funnels it back into a dead political system,' Hedges observes. Sanders fails to confront the American  Empire and military state, and, Hedges adds, has unforgivably 'abandoned the Palestinians and given carte blanche to Israel.'” HERE

Bernie Sanders, the independent Vermont senator who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination on 2016, on Sunday denied that he would be a “spoiler” for the electoral chances of the establishment favourite and said:“Maybe I shouldn’t say this: I like Hillary Clinton.”

"Quite right. Let’s not be fooled by any politician appealing to high ideals when they are in the business of war and empire.
Sanders not only defends military contracts that benefit his constituents in Vermont, he also joined the 100 to 0 vote in the Senate to give unalloyed moral and political support to the state of Israel during its most recent bombing campaign against Gaza."

Let’s not be fooled by “progressives” who can’t find their spines when the colonial regime in Israel bombs the crowded ghetto of Gaza.

Bernie Sanders Drops A Bomb On The Media, “This Campaign Is Not Against Hillary Clinton.” (Warning: Left-wing nut-job website; posted here solely for article title which they cannot understand means he's a sheepdog for Hillary who'll never attack the democrats for whom he works.)

This is most evident in "occupy democrats", an openly pro-Obama PAC using the word Occupy to build a base for Obama, WHO IS PART OF THE PROBLEM WE FIGHT.
