Violent police crackdown against the 99% movement in the middle of the night in Boston

There was a violent police crackdown against the 99% movement in the middle of the night in Boston. As the occupy Boston movement – now in its second week – grew beyond its original campsite in Dewey Square – demonstrators moved into a new space a block away yesterday – prompting police to shut it down. Among the first line of people to be arrested were those with the group Veterans for Peace – war veterans who had their American flags yanked from their hands and thrown on to the ground – before being tackled themselves and arrested.

Then police moved on to the rest of the demonstrators who were seated peacefully – arresting them – then dismantling and trashing their campsite into nearby garbage trucks. Upwards of 100 people were arrested last night in the one of the largest mass arrests in the history of Boston. But as we’ve seen following crackdowns in New York City – this sort of police action has only strengthened the movement.

More than 900 cities across the nation have hosted some sort of meet-up in support of the 99% movement and until there's some real change we can believe in, it's not going away.

First Arizona, now Boston. Is this the response of states or is this a more organized response?

Meanwhile -- the Job Bill -- the 'news' says it requires 60 VOTES!!!!! Excuse me, but Republicans would be screaming bloody murder that the majority were being denied their rights! WHY is not every single filibuster being SCREAMED at by Democrats on a regular basis!???? Why is the PRESIDENT silent about the SUPER MAJORITY required to over ride a filibuster on DISCUSSION, Passage or approving candidates for positions????

SHOUT!

BTW - should all of us simply put up a lawn sign that says '99%' ?

I'm surprised that the Scott Walker recall petition is starting on Nov. 15th, instead of Nov. 5th--Guy Fawkes Day--although I guess that would interfere a bit with this years regular election, which is probably on Nov. 8th. (Here in Colorado we have a weird law, that says that in odd years election day is simply on the first Tuesday, so it can be on the 1st instead of the 8th. That's the only difference.)

Is it possible that the aggression against the protestors is hoping to incite some form of violence that would enable them to completely apply police force to stop all activities? We definitely heard Scott Walker make casual suggestion to this sort of strategy. There is little hope of this strategy working and will most likely only push the movement to be stronger and more united.

Here's hoping it simply makes more people join the movement. Let's face it, people in the street is the only chance for Obama and the Democrats to win in 2012. The news media are not going to be fair and balanced because they are mostly right wing controlled. The Republicans are not being held accountable for anything. They chose to let business self regulate and be got disaster. They chose to let oil and gas self regulate and we got disaster. They chose to let banks and Wall Street to self regulate and we got disaster. They helped export 5 million jobs and holler where are the jobs. Normally I would say let people get what they ask for but that would be disaster. Face it. If you are not white and evangelical, you are not American in 60% of America. Obama is blamed for not reducing the unemployment rate but no one talks about 1 million people fired by Republican governors in last 9 months. The deck is stacked. It is now up to the people to take the streets to save their chance to prevent total takeover of our government by corporations. Pray enough of us get the message.

I noticed that the news media is using the "terrorist" or "terrorism" words when referring to the alleged attempted assassination of the Saudi Ambassador. I think they need another "wag the dog" or "false flag" to detract from the patriotic actions of the "99 percenters"? They want you to be afraid...very afraid...of their conjured up boogeymen "terrorists" while distracting you from the real criminals running, and ruining, this country. Again, I'll believe Ahmadinejad, or any spokesman, for him....over the propagandists in our government or news media. The hypocrites in our government and news media are doing to our patriotic demonstrators (short of killing them...at least I don't think the cops killed anyone yet) what they had complained about the governments of Libya, Egypt, and Syria. Give them time...they'll come around to even more violence...maybe they'll even ram more planes into tall buildings and mail out some more anthrax, like they did before, and blame it on the Iranians this time.

Great interview with John Niles who was in Boston last night when the protesters overran the area they had permits to be in. One tip. Never, never use the "link arms" maneuver and think it will keep police at bay. We were trained that was the best way to break up a protest because the rioters could not run away all linked together. When the law says "disperse". Take them at there word and disperse, or do not complain if you get your head thumped. It is nice to know the Boston police is doing their job. Good on them.

Since our first try, which got us out of Viet Nam, the Movement is much more strategically defined. Where we started in the sixties with "Anti-Establishment," now we've actually got a catalog of offenses, Street Addresses of the Establishment, Names to Name, and Faces to look up.

We've also gained desktop publishing and social networking which can mobilize a lot of people if they think there's a party happening.

This go 'round, we'll end up with a more encompassing slogan than "America is changing its name to Nixxon." We can see the problem with them is way bigger and deeper rooted than originally suspected.

The 1% knew this was coming. They used the miltary buget to over arm the police forces in the U.S. They even have interment sites scoped out by Haliburton and paid for by the Shrub. The 1% have hardend panic mansions. (google Walton family security) We can only hope that Gandi was right. 1st they ignore you, then they laugh at you. then they fight you, and then you win!!

Now you know how the Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghanis and other countless nations feel when bullied, harrassed, thrown out of their homes, and enduring much much worse by the occupying forces.

The same ones who occupy other nations are occupying the United States. The same strategy is being placed upon the nation of the United States by the SAME ONES AT THE TOP!

They do not care nor can they relate to the 99%.

Some say, they "HOPE" they will be listened to by the 1% and their millions of eyes' workers.

THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO YOU! EVEN IF THEY WERE TO GIVE TO YOU SOME OF YOUR DEMANDS THAT WOULD NOT RETURN YOUR COUNTRY BACK TO YOU NOR WOULD IT RETURN YOUR PRIDE AND HONOR. YOU MUST TAKE BACK YOUR OWN NATION! YOU MUST JOIN AS ONE PEOPLE, ONE NATION, UNDER ONE LAW AND PRINCIPLE IN ORDER TO TAKE BACK WHAT THEY HAVE TAKEN FROM EACH OF YOU AND INTEND TO TAKE FROM COUNTLESS GENERATIONS AFTER YOU! YOUR GENERATIONS!

You, the people, must put aside all of your racial hatred from one culture to another. You must place your brothers and sisters, no matter what the skin colour/color or religion, beside you and make their concerns into yours. Only in this way will the oneness develop and you will be able to stand together against the oneness of wickedness which plagues your land!

This is why you need the miltary to join with you! You need the Marines to join with you and the police and the Judges, and all the rest of the ones who do what they do for the sake of money - even turning you, their brothers and sisters into the jails for the sake of the paycheck which they need to pay their bills.

PRESIDENT LINCOLN AND PRESIDENT KENNEDY KNEW HOW TO CREATE MONEY OUT OF THIN AIR WITH A STROKE OF A PEN AND THEY WERE BOTH ASSASSINATED FOR DOING SO!

NOT ONE AMERICAN NOR CITIZEN OF ANY COUNTRY OF THE WORLD NEED TO FLOUNDER IN DARKNESS BECAUSE THE MONEY CREATED OUT OF THIN AIR FOR THE MULTITUDE OF WARS COULD JUST AS WELL BE CREATED OUT OF THIN AIR FOR YOUR MEDICAL, YOUR SCHOOLING AND EVERY OTHER NEED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE!

YOU ARE BEING TOYED WITH AND FOR THE SAKE OF MUCH IGNORANCE, YOU, THE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD, ARE GOING TO WAR TO UPHOLD THEIR WAR MACHINE PROFITS FOR THEIR OWN STATELY BANK ACCOUNTS - AND YOU ARE BEING CHARGED FOR IT!

YOU ARE BEING CHARGED AND SACRIFICED AND COME HOME AS WAR VETS AND HAVE HAD YOUR FACE SPAT INTO BY THE VERY ONES WHO SENT YOU ABROAD, AND NOW YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU HAVE MEANT TO THEM.

THEY COULD WRITE INTO EXISTENCE YOUR WAR VETS TRAUMA TREATMENT AND GIVE YOU A GOODLY PENSION JUST AS THEY WRITE INTO EXISTENCE ALL THE MONEY THEY NEED TO CONTINUE IN CONDUCTING WARS - BUT THEY WILL NOT!

THEY HATE YOU AND THEY DESPISE YOU AND YOU MUST JOIN TOGETHER - LINK HANDS ONE BY ONE FROM ONE SIDE OF THE WORLD TO THE OTHER.

FROM ONE SIDE OF THE UNITED STATES TO THE OTHER - NORTH, SOUTH, EAST AND WEST - SO THEY SEE THAT THEY NO LONGER CAN CONTROL THE POLICE AGAINST YOU, NOR THE MILITARY AGAINST YOU, NOR THE MARINES AGAINST YOU - NOR PUT ANY ONE OF YOU INTO CONCENTRATION CAMPS THEY HAVE HIDDEN THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES CANADA.

ONENESS IN UNITY IS THE FIRST STEP!

The Republican opposition to the 99% movement exposes the scoundrels for who they are and what they stand for.THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ORDINARY CITIZENS EXERCISING THE RIGHT TO PEACEABLY ASSEMBLE IN ORDER TO EXPRESS THEIR DESIRES FOR A MORE JUST SOCIETY IS VERY USEFUL INFO TO REMEMBER WHEN IT COMES TIME TO VOTE!

The spotlight on truth will continue to intensify and expose shadowy powers such as the Kochs!

You're not SMARTER just MEANER, MORE UNETHICAL, and TOO STUPID to realize that your wealth comes from the 99% you feel so much disdain for. Poorly paid workers translate to penniless consumers which means NO PROFIT for you--who is STUPID NOW?

Your wealth does not make you impervious to justice. The US military is full of OUR SONS and DAUGHTERS not yours. Do you think they, who are part of the 99%, will take arms against their parents and family for YOU? We taxpayers PAY their salary. You tax dodgers do not.

You should show more humility and humanity--then you can be called "smart."

The roads of America were paid for by the people of America likewise

The White House, Senate and Congress buildings were paid for by the people

The sewers underground to the satilites in the sky were paid for by the people

The schools and their teacher to the Policemen and their cars were paid for by the people

From the Firetrucks to the Water Hydrants on the streets, the lightpost and the stoplights

No business can happen in America by its own means, all have been created by the use of public items and continue to use these same items while at the same time stealing our rights away.

The real message of OWS is that a citizen of America owns the very things which are being denied to us and when we complain we are arrested, silenced and condeemed without a trial. Our elected officals are guilty of obstruction of justice and other crimes yet no one gets arrested. Our prison system is a tax funded enitity which seeks to make criminals out of every American, our military has been taken over by corporations seeking to profit by making more weapons and ammo, tanks and bombs, our laws are perverted to profit those who can afford lobbying, our supreme court is a bought off court which no longer has the real interests of the citizens of America and bow down to corporate money, the jobs which are being outsourced are being sold by the people who own them mostly Republicans seeking to stop the current President.

Every one in America has a different understanding of what these protests are about, and that is because it is not just one thing or is it the money pollution of our elected and appointed officals?

“QUANTITATIVE EASING” IS SIMPLY THE CREATION OF MONEY “OUT OF THIN AIR.”

The 1% and their closest underlings “write the money into existence” and then charge the people interest on the phony debt. This debt, they, the American people, must then pay back along with the interest which, in the case of a mortgage over 25 years, amounts to four times the value of a house. So, for every house the banker issues a mortgage on, he gets three for free over the term of the contract.

THIS IS WHAT YOU, THE 99% SHOULD BE DEMANDING FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOURSELVES IN RELATION TO YOUR HEALTH SYSTEM, YOUR EDUCATION, YOUR PENSIONS, YOUR SAFETY NET, YOUR MORTGAGES, JUST FOR STARTERS, FOR AS LONG AS THE MONEY SYSTEM IS IN OPERATION.

This would rescue all of you out of your financial hardships.

This is what you should also be focusing on next to the unification of yourselves as brothers and sisters of the United States of America.

Always keep your protests clean! No drugs, nothing the media can demean you with. This is no joke! This is your future and the future of your next generations.

WATCH OUT! YOU ARE BEING CHOSEN FOR THEIR NEXT WAR AGAINST IRAN. YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS WILL BE ‘REDIRECTED’ INTO ANOTHER WAR INSTEAD OF COMING HOME. THEY DO THIS AT THIS TIME TO DISTRACT YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM YOUR REVOLUTION AGAINST THEIR WICKEDNESS!

THEY DO THIS TO DISTRACT THE WORLD FROM ALL THE WORLD WIDE REVOLUTIONS AND YOURS IN PARTICULAR AS THEY TAKE OVER NATION BY NATION. SOME REVOLUTIONS THEY, THEMSELVES CREATE IN ORDER TO PUT IN PLACE GOVERNMENTS WILLING TO DO THEIR WILL AND DENY THE PEOPLE THEIR RIGHT OF “QUANTITATIVE EASING.”

WATCH OUT! THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WILL TRY TO GUT OUT YOUR VERY PROTESTS, AND WILL TRY TO DROWN YOU OUT WITH THEIR LATEST “TERRORIST PLOT” AGAINST THE SAUDI AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED STATES.

*THE 1% NEVER WORRY AS THEY RELY UPON THEIR CREDIT CREATION AND WAR EQUIPMENT INCLUDING YOUR VERY OWN SONS AND DAUGHTERS,

THEY WILL, ALONG WITH THEIR UNDERLINGS AND THEIR MILLIONS OF EYES UPON YOU, RETALIATE BY ENSURING THE MAJORITY OF YOU NEVER SEE YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS AGAIN, FOR THEY HAVE SOME TRUE STORIES TO TELL HOW THEY WERE LIED TO IN ORDER TO GET THEM OVER TO THE MIDDLE EAST, AND TO ENGAGE IN ALL THE HORRORS THE U.S. HAS PERPRETRATED UPON CITIZENS OF OTHER NATIONS AGAINST ALL LAWS AND PRINCIPLES OF WAR.

COUNTLESS WARS WILL KEEP YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS FOREVER BUSY.

It is IMPERATIVE that you not divide yourselves one from the other. Unification, or working in oneness in every category, is what will make you strong, is what will keep you strong. THROW OUT ALL WHICH DIVIDES YOU.

LIST YOUR CATEGORIES. LIST ALL THAT DIVIDES YOU, SUCH AS THE PARTY SYSTEM, OPPOSING GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEMS, POLITICS, EVEN RELIGION, FOR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS SPAWN WARS. RELIGIONS (DOES NOT MATTER WHICH ONES) ARE CONTROLLED BY THE 1% AND THIS 1% BRING WARS INTO EXISTENCE AND INCITE ONE RELIGION AGAINST ANOTHER TO BRING ABOUT THEIR OWN POWER BASE AND WEALTH .

Forget the party system! The party systems are merely tools of the 1% to use against you. Every governmental system is used as a tool against the people, and all men and women in government must do as they are told by the hierarchy belonging to the 1%.

The 1% are strong because they work as ONE people with ONE MIND (backed by a financial system which only they control).

AND YOU, THE PEOPLE, THE CITIZENS, THE TRUE PATRIOTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA MUST NOT DO LESS.

You must take back your country and put in a brand new system! Do not fall into the same old trap as other countries, the same old trap as you have before through reelecting more men and women who are unable to help you out of your financial burden. STOP THE CHAOTIC WHEEL AND DEMAND “QUANTITATIVE EASING” FOR YOURSELVES!

Once you can show your military, your police forces, your marines, and others that in joining your revolution they do not need to fear, for inititally when you take your country back you will be in the position to “quantitate” easy your financial house right back in order and wipe all your national debt right out of existence with a stroke of a pen, and with another stroke of a pen you write everything back into existence – your pensions, health care, safety net (quantitative easing IS your safety net) and everything else you need. Then you will be ready for the system without even that.

“QUANTITATIVE EASING” IS THE SECOND STEP.

AMERICAN PEOPLE! TAKE THEIR GUNS AWAY! TAKE THE GUNS AWAY FROM THE 1% AND THEIR GOVERNMENT. THE 1% USING YOUR GOVERNMENT WANT TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY SO THAT YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, CANNOT TURN YOUR GUNS, ONE DAY, UPON THEM FOR ALL THEY HAVE DONE AND ARE CONTINUING IN DOING TO YOU.

TAKE YOUR MILITARY, YOUR POLICE FORCES, YOUR MARINES, USING THE PROCESS OF QUANTITATIVE EASING AND USE THOSE FORCES LEGALLY UNDER THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION AGAINST THE 1%, THEIR PUPPET U.S. GOVERNMENT AND THEIR WORKERS' EYES IN ALL THEIR JOB DESCRIPTIONS!

IF YOU TAKE YOUR OWN GUNS AGAINST THE 1% AND AGAINST YOUR GOVERNMENT – YOU WILL LOSE. YOU NEED TO BE STRONGER THAN THEY ARE. YOU NEED YOUR MILITARY, YOUR POLICE FORCES AND YOUR MARINES, AIRFORCE AND NAVY BACK. QUANTITATIVE EASING WILL BRING THEM BACK TO THE PEOPLE TO WORK IN ONENESS WITH THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE AND ALL PROGRESS WILL THEN BE MADE BY THE PEOPLE.

WHEN YOUR MEN AND WOMEN SOLDIERS COME BACK FROM WARS OVERSEAS, THOSE WHO MAKE IT BACK, SOME HAVE LOST THEIR MINDS AND THEY RETALIATE BY TAKING THE LIVES OF INNOCENT AMERICANS. ASK THEM TO JOIN YOU AND REDIRECT THEIR ANGER AGAINST THOSE WHO DID THIS TO THEM FOR PROFIT.

“TURN THE U.S. MILITARY WHICH IS RUN BY THE 1% INTO YOUR OWN MILITARY LEGALLY.” THIS IS THE THIRD STEP.

TAKE YOUR MILITARY (THE PRESENT U.S. MILITARY) AND SURROUND THE 1% (IF YOU CAN FIND THEM), AS WELL SURROUND AS WELL ALL THOSE EYES WHO WORK FOR THEM AGAINST YOU FOR PAY, AND THROW THEM ALL OUT OF THEIR POSITIONS.

Picture them all standing in circles surrounded by the American people, sanctioned off by the American people from reaching their homes, their closets with their necessary items of wear, their food, JUST LIKE THEY DID TO MANY OF YOU! Unable to reach their bank accounts as they did to many of you, when they foreclosed on your houses, threw you out of your jobs, and left you pennyless on the streets to face the snow, the sleet, the rain, the heat, and other atrocities!

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MINDS WOULD DO THIS TO THEIR OWN PEOPLE?! AND THEN THEY WANT YOU TO CONTINUE LIVING WITHIN THEIR SYSTEM, VOTING FOR THEIR PEOPLE, NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE!

AMERICA HAS FINALLY AWAKENED!

FOR YOU NOW HAVE THE SECRET OF THE WAY FORWARD THROUGH THE PROMISE TOWARD YOURSELVES OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF QUANTITATIVE EASING!

IF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT OF THE 1% WILL NOT EMPLOY QUANTITATIVE EASING FOR YOU WILLINGLY IN ALL AREAS, THEN YOU MUST MAKE THEM UNDERSTAND THAT YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, WILL TAKE NOTHING LESS TO EASE YOUR FINANCIAL BURDEN THAN THEY DO FOR ONE ANOTHER.

“SURROUND THE 1% (IF YOU CAN FIND THEM) AND ALL OF THEIR WORKING EYES AND THROW THEM OUT OF POWER FROM THE GREATEST TO THE LEAST OF THEM.” THIS IS THE FOURTH STEP.

YOUR UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT HAS A SHADOW GOVERNMENT.

YOU, THE PEOPLE, MUST DO THE SAME, BUT REMEMBER THIS IS TEMPORARY, FOR A NEW SYSTEM WILL COME LATER.

A NEW SYSTEM MUST COME SOON AFTERWARD.

THIS IS JUST TO GIVE YOU, THE PEOPLE, CONTROL UNTIL THAT HAPPENS - QUANTITATIVE CONTROL.

BUT YOU NEED YOUR U.S. MILITARY IN PLACE. YOUR U.S. MILITARY IS THE PRESENT U.S. MILITARY WHO ARE CURRENTLY REPRESENTING THE INTERESTS OF THE U.S./ISRAELI GLOBAL PACT OF CORPORATE POWERS, BANKERS, AND THE 1% GLOBAL WORLD CURRENCY OF WHICH THEY REAP NO BENEFIT.

THE U.S. DOLLAR IS GOING TO FALL RIGHT BACK INTO YOUR HANDS. IT WILL BE DIRECTED ONLY FOR THE GOOD OF YOUR OWN NATION AND NOT TO MAKE SUBSERVIENT THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD THROUGH GLOBAL ECONOMIC MANIPULATION.

THIS IS ALL DONE IN STEPS AND MUST BE DONE PROPERLY.

I think state banks could be a real answer. I know Wall Street would absolutely freak and dissolve if the country started demanding charters for State banks. Have you read about No Dakota's state bank? OWS would begin showing their POWER in a real in a translated way.

State Banks
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0rJWnRFUJA

North Dakota has a state bank . ND is not in debt. Its people are protected from foreclosure. Its private farms are protected from Big Ag. They have jobs and no real unemployment. The experienced a 700 million dollar surplus of funds for N. Dakota schools, fire, infrastructure etc.in 2011 REally. see links below

Why because the money made on borrowing goes all to the state bank and the people of No Dakota. It keeps growing and is owned by the people for the THEIR needs.

This is a clear answer and it is THE ANSWER to address a huge chunk of our demands with an existing model. No one can say its not practical or doable. It is a proven superior plan that has made No. Dakota immune to what the rest of the country is suffering. I like it because it is a central idea that the 99ers could get behind. Asking the bankers to change who they are and how they do things is a gigantic waste of time, we know they will never change and if they do concede some little something they will take it back as soon as people relax for five minutes.

State banks would end their enormous power forever. It would shift the power of policy and money back into the hands of the people and would be a start that would change the banker and submissive people paradigm forever. A simple message that would be real change. We the 99% chose to run our own banks. BofA and the rest are welcome to have their for profit businesses run the way they see fit. They don't have a right to stop us either but they will claim they will which will just prove again that these same people are denying us a Democracy and the right to serve ourselves. The will demand that we are to be totally dependent on them and that will be their end.

Don't you people ever have an orginal thought. I must be paid, if I disagree with you. Let me ask you a question "Oh Wise One". Do you think the reporters who write for newspapers are paid? How about the folks on radio and tv are they paid for their oponion? If someone gets paid for what they write or say their opinion is worth something. On the other hand, I assume you don't get paid for your opinion, so I guess that makes your opinion worthless.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
