We’ve previously reported that the Feds have coordinated the brutal crackdown on the Occupy protests.
Friday, the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund received documentsin response to Freedom of Information Act demands proving that:

DHS monitor journalist's FB page, arrest him at action

MDPD’s Homeland Security Bureau Was Monitoring My FB Page Hours Before My Arrest

And many more insightful details obtained through a public records request of emails

"It also included the following statement about me.
Carlos Miller is a Miami multimedia journalist who has been arrested twice for taking pictures of law enforcement.  He has publicly posted on social networks that he will be taking pictures today in order to document the eviction.
The email makes it clear that the Homeland Security Bureau was monitoring my Facebook page since before my arrest – not that I have an issue with that considering I have my profile set to public.
But it also makes it clear that Perez should have known exactly who I was when she singled me out from a horde of other journalists documenting the eviction and had me arrested.
Perhaps that is the exact reason why she had me arrested."

MDPD’s Homeland Security Bureau Was Monitoring My FB Page Hours Before My Arrest 

"Austerity", the NDAA, DHS, privatized prisons...

Putting on the tin foil cap for a minute...saw on the net, someone saying the banks know a crash is coming, and that the NDAA etc. are tools emplaced to allow for coralling of US citizens when it occurs.

Tying together that they are definitely going to turn "austerity" upon the States when they're done with Europe, or even before they're done, with the rising, ubiquitous powers of the DHS, with the NDAA and NDRP, with an increasingly for-profit prison industry combined with the use of inmates as cheap labor, "patriot act" and increasingly blurry definitions of "terrorist", arms dealers selling to DHS and law enforcement to increase their profit margin...

Tell me it ain't so.

On "the 99% spring" and democrats

moveon.org are only concerned about re-electing Obama. In the end, there will be a call to vote, making 99% Spring "astroturf" instead of grass-roots, making it no better than the democrat's "tea party". AND it uses Occupy Wall Street terminology and imagery without mentioning that it is NOT OWS (Those are OWS people and signs in the below 99% Spring image). OWS are a leaderless movement of horizontal democratic participation. 99% Spring spoon-feeds its people. Occupy decide together. Occupy may have members who will vote for certain candidates, but as a whole, OWS firmly eschews political parties and politicians to remain free of a system harming us all, to address the problems from the outside, from where the people may create real solutions not dependent upon the existing system.

I was a "democrat" for years, but Obama has used terrorist tactics: Killing US citizens suspected of terrorist ties, killing civilians with drones in Pakistan, signing the NDAA, NDRP, HR347, extending the "patriot act", strengthening the monstrous DHS, who for some reason have just purchased 450,000,000 rounds of hollow-point ammunition, and noting Peter King, the congressional overseer for DHS, HATES Occupy. And the DHS, using the secret service, FBI, and local law enforcement, used a government mandate to organize mayors and police forces against Occupy. There was an 18-mayor conference call against Occupy, leaked by "progressive democrat" Jean Quan in Oakland. Note that aside from Bloomberg who is an independent, the majority of the worst police brutality against Occupy occurs and continues to occur in cities with Democratic mayors. There have been 6,900+ Occupiers arrested and brutalized for using our 1st Amendment rights over a six-month period and counting, with the only government response being to organize cities and police departments against us.

The 1% are pressuring democrats and republicans alike to eliminate Occupy. And democrats are going along. They are owned and are a danger to the Constitution and the citizens of this country.

The 1% are using banks to illegally foreclose upon millions of American homeowners, and Wall Street are buying up those homes, and renting them back to us. What is being done to stop this? Dread silence.... 

Obama takes PAC monies (against previous promises), takes money from Goldman Sachs and Wall Street (more Wall Street monies than Romney), appoints Monsanto personnel to government jobs. Does not stop BofA and Wells Fargo from continuing to do robo-signing of illegal foreclosures, does not punish them. Helped bail them out, IIRC. Obama does nothing about our having half our tax dollars go to the military-industrial complex.


What is being done about the above? NOTHING.

Well, not true. Some "representatives", dem and repub, take lobbying monies from arms manufacturers to vote for Unconstitutional legislation such as the NDAA. And give those arms manufacturers multi-million dollar deals in return.

Democrats and the democratic president signed a law, HR347, effectively making protesting our representatives when they are wrong, a Federal offense. What are they afraid of? =It is not democracy when they do not listen.= It is against the Bill of Rights. By supporting the democrats through 99% spring, you are reinforcing Unconstitutional legislation against our freedom and Rights.

Have you heard a single Democrat shout out or legislate against the horrors being done by police to Occupy? Rhetorical question. And you won't. They're not jumping for joy about Occupy because they know their own corruption and lobbying monies will be exposed along with the rest of the corrupt system. That they are the problem, not the solution. That they do not represent the will of the people of this country, who are suffering under increasing income inequality due to corporate control of politics and similar unregulated factors. How many democratic representatives and presidents are millionaires? And now moveon.org say they'll call the cops on Occupy, if Occupy doesn't behave as moveon wishes. The hubris, the Johnny-come-lately-ism. Fuck you, snitch culture! The 1%! YOU are the problem! WE are Change!

99% Spring are a silent front for the democratic party. They are the problem, not the solution.

Occupy are about creating a better, people-oriented world. A joyous world. We are a new model.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
― Richard Buckminster Fuller

This is how Change occurs. Remember "Change"? It's entirely up to us. We are the answer, we are the government, we are the police, we are our own governing body. Take part in the Occupy GA and you'll see that self-governance and true equally-voiced democracy are often messy but they WORK and that no "leader" or "leaders" or "representatives" can ever provide the sense of inclusion, of unity, of being useful in real change.

I encourage the 5 million members of "moveon" to find ways, even peaceful ways with no personal risk, to support Occupy and to use their voice, for themselves. Ask each other how to support those working for Change. It would be appreciated (much less, is required without question).

These initially released documents show:

The private corporate entity Brookfield Properties, which manages Zuccotti Park, had its security agency in communication with cities across the country about police actions designed to evict the Occupy movement and sought information as to Park Police plans to evict in D.C. 48 hours before OWS was evicted.

U.S. Park Police were communicating step by step, as they took action in regard to Occupy DC, with the Secret Service, DHS, and other police agencies as well as personnel affiliated with LEO.gov, the FBI's nationally integrated network and alert system involving all aspects of civilian law enforcement, intelligence agencies and the military. As its website states, "LEO supports the FBI's ten priorities by providing cost-effective, time-critical national alerts and information sharing to public safety, law enforcement, antiterrorism and intelligence agencies in support of the Global War on Terrorism."

"We want to emphasize that Occupy LA is not, and never has been, affiliated with any established political party, candidate or organization as this would directly contravene our spirit of independence. We strive to challenge the rigid, oppressive structures sustaining the inherent inequalities created by our current socioeconomic political reality. We seek to empower communities to share their collective resources and subvert laws and institutions which place profit above people."

Obama Administration Writes Rights Out of New Indefinite Detention Law

Know the enemy: "Homeland Security" and their masters

Why is the "department of homeland security" the enemy of US Citizens? It is one of the symptoms of the neocon revolution, the "project for a new American century" which brought us the planned Iraq invasion for oil, and the general plan to militarize the country internally against supposed external threat, which is only a power grab.

We have given up our right to privacy via the TSA's naked machine and sexual pat-downs of children and adults (sexual humiliation being a strong controlling force in the psyche). We have given up our expectation of free and private communication to Bush's illegal wiretaps of citizens. Soldiers have given their lives for oil and crony no-bid contracts. $99.00 for Halliburton to do a 15 pound bag of soldier's laundry? Really? Halliburton providing services to soldiers such as water? Blackwater acting as an army for hire with zero accountability?

Corporations with their own mercenary armies?! All on our tax dollar?

We know how this happened, we are witness to it. Giving up our freedom to stop a supposed threat. What has doing so accomplished? It has made some corporations and entrepreneurs very, very rich, and created a victim role for the American public. The victimizer is the US government and the corporations. Arms dealers who want new markets need new customers (law enforcement). This requires new laws (NDAA, NDRP, HR347, "patriot act", etc.) which not only create a class of terrorist within the American citizenry, but laws under which they may be punished. In corporate-owned for-profit prisons! Cheap labor, ahoy!

And breaking news, just today!

Obama Administration Writes Rights Out of New Indefinite Detention Law


Peter King

Peter King is the congressional overseer for "homeland security". Peter King hates Occupy. Those in power cannot afford the American citizenry standing up and doing things for themselves.

DHS have recently ordered four hundred fifty million rounds of hollow-point ammunition, which is more than one bullet for each and every US citizen. They have given free military gear to law enforcement departments. They have sold armored transports to law enforcement. Why? To strike fear in any who would dare to demand the power thieves remember the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. To shuffle around tremendous amounts of money. OUR money. Remember "Custer Battles"? The $8 BILLION which became lost in Iraq?

And most importantly, to create a national condition in which this can be endless, with them in permanent power behind the scenes.

Have you noted that the Bush family were once head of the CIA, and the CIA trained Osama Bin Laden to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan (and supplied him as well)? That the Bush CIA traded arms with Iran so they'd hold the American hostages until Americans were sick of Carter and elected Reagan (who gave Bush the vice-presidency)? And that Bush family friends OPEC agreed to a gas/oil embargo against President Carter, to make him look stupid and weak, hitting citizens in their pocketbook and personal convenience? And they gave weapons to Iraq, Iran's enemy? Then said Saddam was behind 9/11 and had drones which could drop chemical weapons on US soil? It all worked!

Note that Enron, major Bush2 friends and financial contributors, had closed-door meetings with Arnold Schwarzenneger before creating "rolling blackouts" and another energy embargo in the US, targeted against California, resulting in the ouster of the governor in a special recall election, and the installation of Schwarzeneggar? Same as they did with Carter and Reagan?

It works!

And I don't give a shit about how Ahnold spells his name! Not after what he and his masters did to California! Smash-and-grabs...

And now we learn that the "housing bubble" was part of a planned land grab by the banks so they could turn the country into a nation of renters...a nation of people who do not own homes (but the banks sure do).

They are, right now, as I type this, as you read this, acting to turn the country into a nation of dependents, with themselves as kings and queens, laughing and laughing and laughing at us.

Smash-and-grabs. Follow the money. And power. They are spitting on the Constitution and to that extent, are treasonous and enemies of the country. They used the "9/11!!" button to keep us scared. Now they're using the "Terrorist!!" button....against US. "You can make people do anything, if they're afraid..." (See "Fahrenheit 9/11" trailer below).

Is our government like a cult? 

Research the Dominionists and other cultists who have power behind the scenes, and who carry forward the Crusades against Islam to this day in a different form. And the government, through the "Terror!" button, seeks to cause us to cut ties with our foreign brothers and sisters, to forget they are our brothers and sisters. It is isolationist. The government has created a false army of enforcers within our borders (TSA, "DHS", etc.). It does use mind-control techniques, if you haven't checked what came out of the Bush era (using the words Saddam and 9/11 in the same sentence over and over, knowingly and willingly, to create in many the incorrect association), and far more...unite against the evil enemy, WE are your only hope...I've seen it before. The creation of fear and of dependence, all lies, all a power grab. Fear IS mind control. Fear is the government's religion, and it has taken over the country.

Know the enemy: The LRAD sound cannon

Weapons manufacturers have discovered a fresh customer in the DHS and "law enforcement" agencies of our country. Especially against our 1st Amendment right to protest.

Chicago Police Ready for NATO Summit Protesters With 'Sound Cannon'

"Chicago police have been increasing their supply of riot-control equipment, including the controversial long-range acoustic device (LRAD), also known as a 'sound cannon,' in the lead-up to the NATO summit protests the weekend of May 19, the Guardian reports today.

Confirming that they would have a sound cannon at the protest, Chicago police told the Guardian it would serve 'as a means to ensure a consistent message is delivered to large crowds that can be heard over ambient noise.'  But the LRAD can also emit a 'deterrent tone,' which some have said is capable of causing permanent hearing damage.

The Guardian reports that the CPD has spent $1m on the riot gear for both officers and horses."

Chicago Police Sound Cannon: LRAD 'Sonic Weapon' Purchased Ahead Of NATO Protests (VIDEO)

Chicago police roll out and demonstrate two $20,000.00 each LRAD sound cannons. 

UK rolls out LRAD sonic gun for London Olympics

"The UK Ministry of Defence has confirmed a device that can be used as a sonic weapon will be deployed at the London Olympics. The US invention is capable of projecting an ear-splitting sound beam of 150 decibels and was used in Iraq.

At full power the device can produce a piercing 150-decibel beam of sound, just 10 decibels away from the force needed to rupture an eardrum."


The Long Range Acoustical Device, or sound cannon, produces a unified, phase-aligned, high-amplitude barrage fully and execrably capable of permanently damaging or eliminating hearing.

It pays to understand a bit about it, from a layman's standpoint.

-The human ear is most sensitive in the range from 1KHz to 3KHz, or 1000 cycles per second+ of repetitive sound frequencies. Repetition of a waveform  produces its frequency, or pitch, being low (bass) or high (treble). Woofers and tweeters. It is not a mistake that the cry of a baby or child sits directly upon this most sensitive frequency range.

-Sound in open air decays in amplitude, relative to frequency. Bass carries and propagates wildly, and higher frequencies vanish in proportion to distance. The further away from the source, the less higher frequencies will reach you.

-Sound also disperses in proportion to frequency. Higher frequencies tend to leave a transducer / loudspeaker in a beam which increasingly narrows relative to frequency. Bass is nearly, but not entirely, omnidirectional. Wendy Carlos has presented an interesting text on bass directionality and the need for two subwoofers in a surround-sound setup, aka: 7.2, with the .2 being two woofers.

  This means that if you are not directly in front of the acoustic device, the higher frequencies will miss you nearly entirely. The beaming characteristic is easily discerned in the following video; watch as it sweeps across the camera person's position. The highest frequencies are only most unpleasantly present when the weapon is aimed directly at you. So of course, they put it on a rotating mount...

Higher frequencies go in and out at 0:45:

The video in the above "Chicago police sound cannon" link states that the device emits a 30 degree cone...that is likely the average due to dispersion characteristics versus increasing frequency. Much of this is moot as the device can produce middle frequencies in our sensitive range at enough amplitude and duration to permanently destroy hearing. We also do not hear with our ears alone. Our cartilage and soft tissues and the water in our bodies also all resonate with sound. Bone conducts sound extremely well. It is unknown how much we would perceive through our skull and tissue if our ears were entirely protected.

Suffice to say, if you hear odd tones adding to the LRAD's, your ears are distorting and are adding subtle distortion. This means you are in trouble, despite any and all protection you proffer.

This picture from the Toronto Sun is not entirely accurate due to some minor disperson but nonetheless:

LRAD Toronto Star

The best generally-available earplugs reduce sound around 25dB or so and again are frequency-dependent (high frequencies are the most reduced, but reduction falls off possibly below the dB reduction stated at lower and lower frequencies). If the attack is at something on the order of 140dB or greater, you can still suffer frequency-specific permanent hearing loss. Gun-range ear protection, combined with good earplugs, may give you a chance against hearing damage. Shooters combine plugs with ear muffs. Consumer-level noise-cancelling Bose headphones will likely not work at the 150dB levels output by this monstrosity. Noise-cancelling ear muffs used by the aviation industry may work...

Let history show that we the citizens of this era rebuke and renounce the fascist, sadistic monsters controlling this world and those who willingly assist.
