Harry Reid Wants To Screw Over Zimmermman, Vows Justice Will Be Undone and Mob Rule Will Reign

On Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) asked for the Justice Department to prosecute George Zimmerman, who was acquitted Saturday night in the killing of Trayvon Martin. “I think the Justice Department is going to take a look at this,” Reid told NBC’s Meet the Press. “This isn’t over with and I think that’s good. That’s our system, it’s gotten better, not worse.”

Reid did acknowledge the verdict, stating, “I am a trial lawyer and have [brought] over 100 cases to a jury. I don’t always agree with what the jury does but that’s the system and I support the system.”

Unions and left-wing groups organize Occupy Wall Street

Anybody who thinks the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York, Washington, Los Angeles and elsewhere across the country sprang up spontaneously hasn’t been paying attention. Aided and abetted by reams of gee-whiz coverage from the liberal mainstream media, the OWS movement represents a carefully planned and orchestrated campaign by left-wing activists to take American politics “to the street.” The aim is to replace American democracy with mobocracy. Some interesting connections are coming to the fore in the process, as major left-wing activist groups and labor unions pump money, media and volunteers into the movement and integrate the street demonstrations with their own programs.

MoveOn.org, for example, put out an email fundraising appeal earlier this week that said “in addition to providing all the support we can to #OccupyWallStreet, at MoveOn we’re scrambling to launch a huge campaign to make Wall Street pay. We’re organizing mass meetings in hundreds of cities … And we’re helping organize two major national days of protest in November.” Among the unions that have lent support are the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, AFL-CIO, Communications Workers of America, United Auto Workers, and the Writers Guild of America, East.

A question asked by many since the demonstrators occupied New York’s Zuccotti Park is why Mayor Michael Bloomberg has taken such a hands-off approach. The official explanation is that Bloomberg’s hands are tied by the fact that the park is privately owned. There may be more to the story, however: Zuccotti Park is owned by Brookfield Properties, one of the directors of which happens to be Bloomberg’s girlfriend, according to the Atlantic Wire.

Then there is this: Brookfield Properties is a subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Managers, which has another subsidiary, the Brookfield Renewable Power Co. The latter owns Granite Wind Power Co. in New Hampshire. Granite recently received a $167 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy under President Obama’s economic stimulus program. Among BAM’s stockholders is one George Soros. Small world, isn’t it!

The list of infamous activists involved in the Occupy movement reads like a Who’s Who of the Radical American Left. Former Students for a Democratic Society Weather Underground bomber Bill Ayers posted the initial statement of the Occupy demonstrators on his blog. Wade Rathke, an ACORN founder and former SDSer, praised the movement and helped organize the Occupy New Orleans demonstrations. Another former ACORN leader, Maude Hurd, is a leader of the Occupy Boston demonstrators, who have been particularly aggressive in confronting local authorities.

Occupy Wall Street Mob threatens riot; city postpones clean up

Once the miscreants made it clear that they would resist the clean up of the filth at Zuccotti park, the mayor had very little choice.

Fox News:

The deputy mayor of New York City says a planned cleaning of the Occupy Wall Street protest encampment in lower Manhattan has been postponed.

“Late last night, we received notice from the owners of Zuccotti Park – Brookfield Properties – that they are postponing their scheduled cleaning of the park, and for the time being withdrawing their request from earlier in the week for police assistance during their cleaning operation. Our position has been consistent throughout: the City’s role is to protect public health and safety, to enforce the law, and guarantee the rights of all New Yorkers. Brookfield believes they can work out an arrangement with the protesters that will ensure the park remains clean, safe, available for public use and that the situation is respectful of residents and businesses downtown, and we will continue to monitor the situation,” Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway said in a statement.

The demonstrators said the planned cleanup at 7 a.m. was merely a pretext to evict them from where they’ve been camped for a month in protest over wealth distribution. The movement has inspired similar demonstrations around the world.

Supporters streamed into the plaza early Friday before the announcement about the postponement. There was a strong police presence, and a showdown between protesters and authorities had been feared.

There were apparently about 2000 demonstrators loaded for bear facing off against police this morning. Of course, their object was to provoke a response from the police which would then be beamed around the world showing how America deals with “peaceful” protestors.

When a mob rules, governments who coddle the mob usually get what they deserve. The protestors will not be grateful to anyone for this stay. And the fact that after nearly a month, they finally got off their lazy asses to clean the park on their own makes one wonder what their bedrooms look like at mommy and daddy’s house.
