Will Obama denounce ‘Occupy’? Leftist group gets violent and riots in Chicago… will the President condone?


Streets blocked off as protesters roam as of 9:34 p.m.

Various streets have been intermittently blocked off this evening downtown, including at times all northbound access to the Michigan Avenue bridge,as police try to contain protesters who remain in the Loop. The protesters have been running and stopping for about two hours, winding up and down Loop streets, turned away from any attempts to go north of Wacker Drive. At about 9:30 p.m., the dwindling group of protesters, about 100 remaining, sat in the middle of Michigan and Jackson streets, conducting a human mic general assembly about their next moves.

Police remain on alert this evening beyond the Loop, north of Chicago River. At Ohio and Michigan streets, police officers asked pedestrians for identification, and told one pedestrian that they are limiting walking and vehicle traffic in the area because of the roaming protesters.

8:14 p.m.

As they have previous nights of the NATO summit weekend, some bands of protesters have remained in the Loop, hours after the protest rallies and parades have ended.

With many wearing rags and masks to cover their faces, about 200 protesters left the Congress Plaza rally spot this evening, sometimes sprinting, sometimes marching in between cars and pedestrians, stopping traffic. They chant a now familiar refrain, “Whose streets? Our streets?”

As they have all weekend, police continue to form bicycle and officer blockades at some street turns in an attempt to stay ahead of the oft-changing flow of protesters.

Highlights:

* Party like your crazy. March ends at Congress Plaza 6:55 p.m.

* Video: Protesters on the move again on last day 6:16 p.m

* Protests swell again in the Loop 6:13 p.m. (William DeShazer/Chicago Tribune)

* Protesters on move again 5:15 p.m.

After a virtual sit-in outside President Obama’s campaign headquarters for a few hours, several hundred NATO protesters are on the move again in the Loop. They are chanting and shouting, and police are holding up traffic for them as they march.

* NATO protest heads to Obama’s re-election headquarters 1:59 p.m.

After rallying outside Boeing Co.’s headquarters in the west Loop, protesters meandered around downtown streets, chanting slogans against the aerospace company, banks, NATO and Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The protesters criticized Emanuel, saying he was a pro-war and had spent millions to host the NATO summit instead of investing in social programs to help people. Using a common theme of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the protesters said Emanuel, a millionaire, was a “1 percenter.”

* JUST Hmmm (Scott Strazzante, Chicago Tribune):

* 2 protesters (They Look 12) charged with assaulting police officers 1:13 p.m.

Raziel Azuara, 24 was part of a group of protesters involved in a confrontation with police about 6:45 p.m. Sunday at 22nd Street and Michigan Avenue, prosecutors said. While the protesters tried to push east through police lines, Azuaro threw a light bulb filled with red paint at the police, striking an officer in the helmet, they said.

The bulb broke and bounced off the helmet, striking another officer in the shoulder, prosecutors said. Azuaro was captured in a photograph holding up the lightbulb just before he threw it, according to prosecutors. Azuaro has three misdemeanor convictions in his background, including a 2007 criminal damage to property charge for spray-painting “We kill cops” on a CTA window, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Lorraine Scaduto.

Yonte Harris, 19, was protesting at 301 S. Wabash on Sunday night when he tried to pass a line of police on bicycles, prosecutors said. Harris “grabbed the officer’s bike and threw his leg over it,” Scaduto said. When the officer tried to gain control, a struggle ensued and Harris pushed the bicycle into the officer’s chest, she said. The officer suffered a scratch on the arm and felt pain in his knee, Scaduto said.

Harris is a community college student and has no criminal background, according to Smith. He was ordered held on $200,000 bail. Both men are charged with aggravated battery to a police officer.

* Seven at NATO complain of flu-like symptoms 10:31 a.m.

Seven NATO officials were struck with flu-like symptoms this morning, according to the Secret Service and other officials. Two were hospitalized, one at Rush University Medical Center, and five others were treated and did not require hospitalization, sources said. All seven were staying at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place hotel, near the site of this weekend’s NATO summit.

Sources said officials were looking into whether the illness could be food poisoning, but that had not been confirmed. All seven had eaten at places in common, sources said.

The Hyatt released this statement this morning:

“We were alerted this morning that several hotel guests reported feeling ill. We have provided them with access to medical attention and are taking appropriate steps to ensure their comfort and safety. The cause of their illness is not yet determined and is being investigated.”

* Demonstrators camp outside police station 8:50 a.m. ( My old hood) Where ‘Riverview once stood’! Notice the upside down flag…Do they even have a clue what that signifies?! So IMO these punks having the audacity to turn the flag and camp outside one of the main CPD Hdqtrs? So although Riverview has been gone for 45 years, it is STILL an Amusement Park in the heart of Chicago.

At least 20 people arrested or detained by Chicago police during Sunday’s NATO protests were released from custody overnight, according to other protesters and representatives of a lawyers’ organization offering them free legal advice. A total of 45 people were arrested during Sunday’s protests, police said, citing unofficial numbers.

Most were taken to Area North police headquarters at West Belmont and North Western avenues, where about 30 protesters camped outside the station just before dawn while waiting for others to be released. About 80 people — including some who walked to the station from the Loop — had been outside the station at about midnight, but the crowd dwindled through the morning.

The RebelPundit spotted leading the Anarchist anti-NATO protest:

Rebel Pundit was founded by Jeremy Segal, a Chicago anti-activist and continues as a group effort based in Chicago, the belly of the progressive beast. The blog is a beacon of truth, showing the unholy alliance of the mainstream media, Republican establishment and the progressive Democratic Party . Our team takes to the field with cameras to show what isn’t aired in Chicago and beyond. The members of Rebel Pundit believe that exposing the true nature of liberalism to the American people is a top mission.

“A wise man once said, (paraphrasing) ‘All you have to do to expose the radical Progressive Left in this country, for the vile, racketeering, hypocrites they really are, is get a video camera, turn it on, and point it at them.’ Rebel Pundit is one of a handful of people who have turned this idea into an art form.”

Another James O’ Keefe is born, I see Andrew ROFL on a cloud in heaven…I JUST cannot express how precious it is one of Breitbart’s very own is leading the Anarchists. O M Goodness!

On the heels of the scandal surrounding one government agency’s lavish Las Vegas conference, federal judges in the western U.S. circuit are catching flak from Congress for a planned Maui getaway that could cost taxpayers more than $1 million.

The Maui meet-up is scheduled for August under the banner of the 2012 Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference, and will include judges, attorneys, staff and “special guests” from various federal courts spread across nine western states — including judges on the California-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

While in Hawaii, the guests are scheduled to stay in the upscale Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa. And they’ll have the chance to kick back with an array of recreational activities — sport fishing, golf, paddle-board lessons, yoga, Zumba, even a floral design workshop.


The official website for the conference stresses that “government funds are not used for any recreational or sporting activities.”

But Sens. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, in a letter to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, called the activities “unrelated to the business of the court” and questioned whether the Ninth Circuit really needed to ship everyone out to the islands — a trip that incurs substantial costs in travel and lodging alone.

“The programs read more like a vacation than a business trip to discuss the means of improving the administration of justice,” they wrote. “We are concerned about the overall cost of this conference and do not believe that discussions about the administration of justice would be less successful were they held somewhere other than a spa and resort in Hawaii.”

A statement from the senators estimated the trip could cost more than $1 million — pegging the cost of accommodations alone at more than $500,000. That factors in room rates of between $230 and $250 per night for four nights.

~ How many of us could live several years & live well with the cost of this trip! Arses! ~ JP

The government also provides a per diem — according to the conference website, this per diem starts at a base level of $289.

Here is the petition to try to save the television show Missing. As you know ABC decided to cancel this series after only 10 episodes. This show was one of the best shows on tv. It has an excellent cast and great scripting. It was like watching a Hollywood Spy movie every week with lots of twists and turns. I am hoping that ABC will see this and either renew it for a second season or another network will decide to pick this excellent show up and renew it for a second season.

Sign the Petition PLEASE?

Someone else trying to save this GREAT show:

Via tumbler

If you have not been smart enough -tease- to watch this show, it is the best thing to come along since Keifer’s ’24′! Watch an episode and you WILL be hooked, especially if you were a rabid fan of 14 as I was! ~ JP

Cast Starring Ashley Judd

Storyline:

How far would you go to save the only thing you have left in the world? After Rebecca Winstone’s son, Michael, goes missing under suspicious circumstances, she will do anything it takes to find him. Becca isn’t just a mother looking for her son; both she and Michael’s father were CIA agents. But if Becca wants to find her son alive, it will take all of her resourcefulness, skill and determination, and she’ll have to rely on old friends and reopen old wounds. A mother’s love knows no limits.

The finale will prove this and leave you breathless! A MAJOR 24 moment!

The scene opens with Rebecca enjoying her jog, a part of her daily routine. Her husband Paul calls her and she tells him that she is ready for another baby. As they are having their talk, Michael, their son, wants to talk to her mother. They are in Vienna, Italy. Paul goes to get the car, when suddenly his car explodes and he is killed. Ten years later; Michael and his mom Rebecca are seen jogging together. They are living a simple life now. He tells her that there is a college program that he wants to join; but it is in Rome. Rebecca reluctantly agrees. At the airport she hands him a map and he tells her that their special code for ‘I love you’ will be 235@w. A former CIA agent Rebecca is a florist today. Her husband Paul was an agent as well. Michael Calls Rebecca from his apartment and tells her that he can see the Trevie fountain.

We see that he texts her and calls her every day. But she hasn’t heard from him in the past few days and is beginning to get worried. Just then she gets a call from Michael’s professor saying that Michael moved out of his dorm two weeks ago and nobody knows where he is. Moreover he has missed three lectures and so now he has been dropped out of the program. That is not like Michael and so mommy sets out to find out what is happening with her son. Rebecca goes to Rome. Rebecca reaches Michael’s apartment and finds it empty. But she finds his cell phone on the desk. She sees that a lot of calls have been made to Francesca and so she dials that number; but gets her voicemail. Just then a man enters the apartment with a gun and a fight ensues and the guy ends up being killed by our mommy. She clicks his photograph. Rebecca wants a place to stay, so that she can find Michael. She calls her old friend Giancarlo.

She shows him the photograph of the guy. He tells her that the guy is a ghost agent; who worked for Italian intelligence. He tells her that he has no idea who he is working for. She tells him that she killed the only lead she had to Michael. Giancarlo tells her that within two hours the intelligence would be looking for her; including the Interpol. Next, we see Agent Miller is furious about the death of one of his guys. He wants all information about Rebecca. When he is told that she is a retired agent, he does not believe it. He thinks that no retired officer can take down a man like that. He is told that she has a thin file. He tells his team that thinner the file, better the agent. He wants her out of the country before she can cause any more trouble. Next, she tracks Francesca down at a bar. She tells her that she wants to know what happened.

She tells Rebecca that they were in the middle of breakfast, when Michael told her that he was out of milk. He went to get some milk and never returned. She thought that he was like all other American men; who once done never show up and go to find some other Italian girl. Rebecca knows that Michael wouldn’t do that. Francesca tells Rebecca that Michael used to visit a soccer bar nearby where he made a lot of friends. Rebecca thanks her and leaves to check the sports bar. When she reaches the bar, she realizes that she is being followed. She is cornered and shot at. But she manages to escape using a scooter. She reaches the bar where she met Francesca; but instead she finds her dead in an ally. Giancarlo feels that Francesca had set her up. But Rebecca tells him that Francesca was a Pawn; not a player.

Breitbart News’ discovery of the 1991 biography distributed by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, which stated (incorrectly) that Obama had been “born in Kenya,” confirmed what we have been saying for months as we pursued “The Vetting” project. Much of what the country ought to know about Obama, but does not, is hidden–often in plain sight–yet the mainstream media covers it up or spins it away to protect him.

The errant biography is only the most sensational example of a pattern of behavior in which Obama and his supporters manipulate or even fabricate his life story. And because Obama and his campaign have refused to provide other, relevant facts–and because the mainstream media shows such little interest in finding them–conspiracy theories flourish.

Also See: What do President Obama’s own words reveal about him?

Some of these are easily debunked by conducting some very basic research.

The image above–never before released–is from public records at Columbia University that prove that Obama did, in fact, graduate in 1983 from the Ivy League school. Contrary to some conspiracy theories, Obama was a student within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences–not the less selective, “nontraditional” Columbia University School of General Studies (which only merged with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences in 1990).

This never-before-seen document debunks a persistent myth that is unfairly unfavorable to the President.

Some “fact-checking” websites–such as snopes.com and FactCheck.org–have attempted to debunk the “Obama never graduated Columbia” conspiracy theory before. Yet they have relied almost entirely on secondary sources and mainstream media reports, which fail to cite primary sources. And the Obama campaign has not provided details of his admission to, or graduation from, the prestigious Ivy League school.

~ A JP Interruption Flashback December 2011:

Late last night, I watched Politichicks and heard Victoria say Soros financed Snopes. If you look at the diagram below, you will see Snopes disproved claim about this story. So it’s up to you to decide what you believe but it makes sense. Me personally, I worry because many believe Snopes is the end all in proving ‘urban legend’. But if it’s a Soros vehicle it throws me back to ‘They Live’. I researched & all links lead back to Snopes.

~ This Piper will never use Snopes again.

* Back to Exposing Obama…

Crucially, Obama has refused to release his college transcripts from Columbia and Occidental College, which certainly do exist. Other candidates–such as George W. Bush–released their transcripts, though their grades were not necessarily flattering.

The mainstream media has clamored for, and investigated, and leaked information about other presidential candidates. But not Barack Obama–not in 2008, and not now.

Even when you lead the mainstream media by the nose to the facts, or to the questions they should ask, they refuse. They are addicted to a failing business model: left-wing bias alienates readers, which cuts revenues, which leads to layoffs, which leads to less news coverage, which leads to more opinion, which alienates readers anew. They tinker with every part of that failing model except the bias that launches the vicious cycle.

As more and more information about Obama emerges–through Breitbart News and other New Media sources, left and right–the failing mainstream media look more and more foolish, reduced to beatifying the president instead of reporting what he and his administration have done to this country.

Whether Obama’s college transcripts, or the documents in the Fast and Furious scandal, the time for excuses and evasions is over.

Update: Several readers point out, correctly, that George W. Bush’s transcripts were leaked by the media. All the more reason to wonder why the media has not shown the same interest in Obama’s records.

Monday morning, it was announced that the Archdiocese of New York would be filing suit to seek to blog the mandate by Health and Human Services that they claim is unconstitutional. Read the full text of the press release below:

In order to protect our religious liberties from unwarranted and unprecedented government intrusion, the Archdiocese of New York has filed suit in federal court today seeking to block the recent Health and Human Services mandate that unconstitutionally attempts to define the nature of the Church’s religious ministry and would force religious employers to violate their consciences. The Diocese of Rockville Centre has joined in the lawsuit.


Named as defendants in the suit are the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The lawsuit was filed at federal court in Brooklyn. Other lawsuits also objecting to the HHS mandate were filed today in federal district courts throughout the nation by other Catholic (arch)dioceses, institutions and organizations.

Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, said about the lawsuits filed in New York and elsewhere, “We have tried negotiation with the Administration and legislation with the Congress, — and will keep at it — and there’s still no fix. Time is running out, and our precious ministries and fundamental rights hang in the balance, so we have to resort to the courts now.”

Cardinal Dolan says religion is under attack in America Apr 9, 2012


The Archdiocese of New York has filed this suit because the federal government is requiring religious organizations, under penalty of law, to provide, pay for, and/or facilitate access to services that are contrary to their deeply held and constitutionally-protected religious beliefs.

An equally grave concern is that while the government has recognized a religious exemption to these mandates, it is so narrowly worded that many – if not most – religious institutions such as Catholic hospitals, nursing homes, schools, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters do not qualify for it.

* Protesters march through Loop 12:37 p.m.

CHICAGO (FOX Chicago News)

Protesters are gearing up for another day of demonstrations, with an all day rally at the Boeing headquarters. The Occupy movement is claiming victory Monday, since workers have been told to stay home.

Protesters gathered at Union Park before moving to the aerospace and defense contractor’s headquarters at 10 a.m.

Chicago police stationed a surveillance truck near Union Park to monitor the group’s actions as they prepared to move to the intersection of Washington and the Chicago River. They remained hands-off as of 9 a.m. Monday, patrolling the park.

Other protests could pop up anywhere in the city. As we’ve seen over the past few days, many protesters don’t feel the need for permits or forewarning.

As one protester told FOX Chicago News, “The constitution is my protest permit.”

A few hundred protesters have arrived at the Boeing headquarters, where they are chanting and performing demonstrations. “Shame on Boeing! Shame on Boeing!” the demonstrators shouted.
The activists are making paper planes and writing anti-war messages on them. Others are sitting, giving short speeches about why they are here.

“Boeing is closed today, but it will be open tomorrow. We will stand and we will fight!” one activist said.

Chanting, “We’re gonna beat back the Boeing attack,” and “Hey Rahm Emanuel, take your cuts and go to hell,” protesters are heading east on Lake Street.

~ File this under ‘Are You Kidding Me’. How old are they?

Protesters gather in Union Park 11:00 a.m.

About 100 protesters prepared to march toward Boeing Headquarters, but not before practicing some street theater to symbolize what they view as the company’s role in supporting wars.

An organizer asked for volunteers to act as “bombers” and “drones” soaring in and around the crowd and for others to “die off” as they acted. They’re in groups in the Union Park, practicing their moves.

The group was given talking points by Sam Spitz, 21, of Lincoln Square who said his research of Boeing shows that the company has taken in millions in tax rebates and government contracts while also dodging tax payments. He said the company posted millions in profits, while laying off employees.

Matthew McLoughlin, 26, of Uptown said that despite the police presence Boeing’s decision to keep its employees home today, they would still march to show their opposition.

“They were scared of the power of the people, because we told them we are sick and tired of them spending our money to kill people,” he said. “So we’re going to…let people know that non-violent direct action works.”

The group plans to protest at Boeing, and at the Obama’s campaign headquarters.
