“I Still Hate You, Sarah Palin.” By David Kahane

I Still Hate You, Sarah Palin
The Republicans bring a knife to a gunfight, and lose again.



One of the most terrifying moments of my political life came last summer at the Republican convention in St. Paul. No, I don’t mean seeing John McCain careering around the Xcel Energy Center like Eyegore in Young Frankenstein, his face frozen in a Lon Chaney Sr. rictus grin as he reached across the aisle to his erstwhile friends in the media and got his hand bitten off. Rather, I’m referring to the aftermath of Sarah Palin’s outrageous acceptance speech, which whipped up the Rotary Club delegates into a frenzy of white-boy fury that not even heckling by a brave Code Pink embed could deter. Truly a fascist classic and one that sent shivers down our collectivist spines.

Even worse was the glaze of horror on the phizzes of the assembled heroes of the Mainstream Media. Andrea Mitchell — yes, the very same Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, whose employer saw no conflict of interest at all when she married then Fed pooh-bah Alan Greenspan — stood there gaping like a frog while the rest of the assembled Finemans and Matthewses and Olbermanns scurried around like roaches when the light gets turned on: What the hell just hit us? For one horrible moment, it looked as if the carefully crafted plans of David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, George Soros, and the Second Chief Directorate, first department, of the old KGB were about to gang agley.

Not only were we offended at the sheer effrontery of McCain’s pick: How dare the Republicans proffer this déclassée piece of Wasilla trailer trash whose only claim to fame was that she didn’t exercise her right to choose? Where were her degrees from Smith or Barnard, her internships at PETA, the Brookings Institution, or the Young Pioneers? We were also outraged that the Stupid Party had just nominated a completely unqualified candidate nobody had ever heard of, a first-term governor of Alaska whose previous experience consisted of a small-town mayoralty. As opposed to our guy, Barry Soetoro of Mombasa, Djakarta, and Honolulu, a first-term senator nobody had ever heard of, whose previous experience had been as a state senator (D., Daley Machine) in Illinois. After eight long, illegitimate, lawless years of &*^%BUSH$#@! tyranny, how dare you contest this election?

And so the word went out, from that time and place: Eviscerate Sarah Palin like one of her field-dressed moose. Turn her life upside down. Attack her politics, her background, her educational history. Attack her family. Make fun of her husband, her children. Unleash the noted gynecologist Andrew Sullivan to prove that Palin’s fifth child was really her grandchild. Hit her with everything we have: Maureen Dowd of the New York Times, taking a beer-run break from her quixotic search for Mr. Right to drip venom on Sister Sarah; post-funny comic David Letterman, to joke about her and her daughters on national television; Katie Couric, the anchor nobody watches, to give this Alaskan interloper a taste of life in the big leagues; former New York Times hack Todd “Mr. Dee Dee Myers” Purdum, to act as an instrument of Graydon Carter’s wrath at Vanity Fair. Heck, we even burned her church down. Even after the teleological triumph of The One, the assault had to continue, each blow delivered with our Lefty SneerTM (viz.: Donny Deutsch yesterday on Morning Joe), until Sarah was finished.

You know what? It worked! McCain finally succumbed to his long-standing case of Stockholm Syndrome (“My friends, you have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency”), Tina Fey turned Palin into a see-Russia-from-my-house joke, “conservative” useful idiots like Peggy Noonan and Kathleen Parker hatched her, and finally Sarah cried No más and walked away. If we could, we’d cut off her head and mount it on a wall at Tammany Hall, except there is no more Tammany Hall unless you count Obama’s Tony Rezko–financed home in Chicago. And it took only eight months — heck, Sarah couldn’t even have another kid in the time it took us to destroy her. That’s the Chicago way!

Yes, my friends, it’s once again time to quote Sean Connery’s famous speech from The Untouchables, written by David Mamet — the lecture the veteran Chicago cop gives a wet-behind-the-ears Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner, back when he was a movie star) while they sit in a church pew. “You want to get Capone? Here’s how you get him: he pulls a knife, you pull a gun, he sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way!” If you just think of us — liberal Democrats — as Capone you’ll begin to understand what we’re up to. And we just put one of yours in the morgue.

I don’t know why I’m telling you this, but maybe now you’re beginning to understand the high-stakes game we’re playing here. This ain’t John McCain’s logrolling senatorial club any more. This is a deadly serious attempt to realize the vision of the 1960s and to fundamentally transform the United States of America. This is the fusion of Communist dogma, high ideals, gangster tactics, and a stunning amount of self-loathing. For the first time in history, the patrician class is deliberately selling its own country down the river just to prove a point: that, yes, we can! This country stinks and we won’t be happy until we’ve forced you to admit it.

In other words, stop thinking of the Democratic Party as merely a political party, because it’s much more than that. We’re not just the party of slavery, segregation, secularism, and sedition. Not just the party of Aaron Burr, Boss Tweed, Richard J. Croker, Bull Connor, Chris Dodd, Richard Daley, Bill Ayers, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and Emperor Barack Hussein Obama II. Not just the party of Kendall “Agent 202” Myers, the State Department official recruited as a Cuban spy along with his wife during the Carter administration. Rather, think of the Democratic Party as what it really is: a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.

If you had any sense, you would start using our tactics against us. After all, you have a few lawyers on your side. Sue us. File frivolous ethics complaints against all our elected officials until, like Sarah, they go broke from defending themselves. (David Paterson would be a good place to start.) Challenge the constitutionality of BO2’s legion of fill-in-the-blank czars — none of whom have to be confirmed, or even pass a security check. (Come to think of it, neither did Barry.) Let slip your own journalistic dogs of war, assuming you have any, to find Barry’s birth certificate, his college transcripts, whether he applied to Occidental as a foreign student, and on which passport he traveled in 1981 to Pakistan with his friend Wahid Hamid, for starters.

You might also want to think about interviewing New York literary agent Jane Dystel, who a) contacted the totally unknown Obama in the wake of an adulatory New York Times piece in 1990 and b) got him a $125,000 advance for a memoir that c) he couldn’t write, even after a long sojourn in Bali, which d) got the contract canceled, whereupon e) Dystel got him $40,000 from another publisher, following which f) the book finally came out to glowing reviews and g) Obama fired her. Wouldn’t she have an interesting story to tell?

Of course, you won’t.

You’re too nice, too enamored of history and tradition to realize that the rules have changed. Remember, I live and work in a town where, “Hello, he lied,” isn’t a joke; we men of the Left are perfectly comfortable lying, cheating, and stealing — hello, Senator Franken! — in order to attain and keep political power. Not for nothing is one of our mottos, “By Any Means Necessary.” You see, we’re the good guys, and for us the ends always justify the means. We are, literally, shameless, which is why Bill Clinton is now a multi-millionaire and Eliot Spitzer is already on the comeback trail.


In Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, “the fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.” This is the book that “Reset” Rodham (what ever happened to her?) and BHO II grew up reading and continue to live by. If you don’t understand that that’s the way we see you — as the enemy — then you’re too dumb to survive. Remember that for us politics is not just an avocation, or even just a job, but our life. We literally stay awake nights thinking up ways to screw you. And one of the ways we do that is by religiously observing Alinsky’s Rule No. 4.

Did Sarah stand for “family values”? Flay her unwed-mother daughter. Did she represent probity in a notoriously corrupt, one-family state? Spread rumors about FBI investigations. Did she speak with an upper-Midwest twang? Mock it relentlessly on Saturday Night Live. Above all, don’t let her motivate the half of the country that doesn’t want His Serene Highness to bankrupt the nation, align with banana-republic Communist dictators, unilaterally dismantle our missile defenses, and set foot in more mosques than churches since he has become president. We’ve got a suicide cult to run here.

And that’s why Sarah had to go. Whether she understood it or not, she threatened us right down to our most fundamental, meretricious, elitist, sneering, snobbish, insecure, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders bones. She was, after all, a “normal” American, the kind of person (or so I’m told) you meet in flyover country. The kind that worries first about home and hearth and believes in things like motherhood and love of country the way it is, not the way she wants to remake it.

What you clowns need, in other words, is a Rules for Radical Conservatives to explain what you’re up against and teach you how to compete before it’s too late. Luckily, since I care about money even more than I care about politics, I have just such a book in the proposal stage, currently making the rounds of various publishers, assuming any of them are wise enough to take me up on it.

And, yes, this time it really is personal.

– David Kahane is pushing for a new national holiday to commemorate the destruction of Sarah Palin, and is hopeful that his senators, Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, will co-sponsor it, along with Henry Waxman in the House. You can second the motion at or on Facebook.   



TWG NOTE:  One would think the glassy eyeds would Love Sarah Palin, if they only knew her record!

As mayor of Wasilla:

#1 Took a town that had not grown in 30 years and grew it by adding big box stores. She was able to convince these stores they would be profitable and they are. In fact, Wasilla with a population of just 6300 has 50,000 people shopping there every day. It enabled her to cut property taxes by 75% and personal property and inventory taxes by 100%. The income from the malls allowed her to do much for the city.

Updated sewer system.
Repaved every road in Wasilla and added needed infrastructure by getting the new big box stores to chip in.
Built a multi sport arena for the children of Wasilla.
Kept a glass jar on her desk with the name and phone number of all residents. Once a week she would pull a name randomly and call them to see what they thought of the city.

As Chairperson of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission

#1 – As ethics officer, she found there was corruption on the committee being perpetrated by a member of her own party. She went to the head of the commission, the legislature and the governor seeking help in rooting it out. It soon became apparent to her that the corruption was widespread and it needed to be stopped. She got the head of the commission (a republican) and the secretary of state (another republican) to resign and face criminal charges.

#2 – She quit her well paying job, cutting her family income by 60%. Working as a private citizen she was able to not only get the commissioners fired, but thrown into prison to boot.

#3 – Seeing that the corruption ran all the way up to the governor’s office, she decided to run herself and won.

As Governor of Alaska

#1 – Her first act as governor was to veto a popular new law depriving gay couples of the same benefits straight couples get. And this from the woman dims allude to as a homophobe. It was her contention that her personal beliefs should not enter into governing the state and that all people deserve equal rights. What a fruitcake huh?

#2 – She took on the oil companies and made them increase their payments to the state for the oil and gas they took from there.

#3 – Despite dim hand wringing over her expenses, she was able to make 30% more public appearances as the former governor while cutting the travel expenses by over 80%!!!

#4 – Again cut taxes (this is becoming a habit) while still giving every resident of Alaska checks for 2500 dollars from the increased oil and gas money.

#4 – Before she knew she was carrying a special needs kid, she adopted a plan to triple the money spent on education for children with special needs.

#5 – In 2008 she was voted a 25,000 dollar pay raise which she refused to accept.

#6 – Although dims blame her for the bridge to nowhere, the truth is congress passed the expenditure in 2005, BEFORE she was governor. She pulled the plug on the plan as “wasteful”.

#7 – Has worked hard to build a gas pipeline from Alaska to the lower 48 states, which would greatly increase the states income while at the same time lowering the heating costs in the lower 48. Others had been trying for 35 years to build it and all of them failed. Sarah succeeded. Exxon with Trans-Canada are building the 26 billion dollar pipeline.

#8 – Went to court to force oil companies to either use their leases or forfeit them.


Not bad for an insane Woman, right?

TRAITORS! House Gop Leaders: We Can Pass Gun Control, Immigration, Without Republican Support

March 10, 2013 1 comment

With more and more conservatives in the House rebelling against John Boehner’s increasingly questionable Speakership, Republican House leadership is now moving to quash in-house concerns by reaching across the aisle for support. Leadership is moving in the wake of a surprising move by 16 House Republicans to vote against a Republican leadership-crafted closed rule on a government funding bill. The rule was designed to limit amendments to the government funding bill, but some House conservatives, concerned over the Boehner team’s refusal to consider a floor vote on an amendment to defund Obamacare implementation, bucked Boehner on the rule.

After undergoing that unpleasant shock, House leadership hasn’t responded by listening to the concerns of the more conservative members of its caucus. Instead, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on Sunday that he would be open to ramming through bills without the support of a majority of his own Republican caucus. Not just on small bills. On issues like immigration and gun control, McCarthy said, he’d be open to taking rogue Republicans across the aisle to work with Democrats….

Unending Mean-Mouthing

The below letter to the editor is by Robert “Bob” McDowell, Jr. He is a Professional Engineer and Geologist with over 50 years experience in creating drilling prospects, supervising drilling, well completion, production operation, and pipeline design for oil and gas including repair of problem wells. McDowell is a conservative and active in the Oklahoma Republican Assembly.

Bob McDowell

By Bob McDowell: As was postulated early last year, this was expected to be one of the most vicious and nasty election campaign periods in memory. All the while President Obama (D-IL), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), House Minority Leader “Queen” Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) would use their respective pulpits to call for more ‘civil’ discourse. It seems that their remarks were directed only to those in the Republican and conservative side of the political spectrum, since not one word has been heard from them, or their spokespersons, against the continual diatribes coming from their supporters and colleagues.

Experience and history has clearly taught me that is the course of action to be expected from those in the Communist/Socialist movements in the World. We have also seen that come out of the clergy and ‘elected officials’ of the Muslim nations. Decent thinking people are, or should be, deeply offended by the words and phrases used by those who would seek to arouse hatred in the uninformed so as to instigate riots and other nefarious actions.

This was made clear earlier last year when the Wisconsin Legislature passed and the Governor signed into law what was termed “right to work” legislation that ended the requirement that ALL employees of the State be members of a union and that the State MUST deduct the union dues from their pay checks and remit the collected dues to the unions. The same requirement was in the former law in respect to private companies and their employees. During the raucous ‘debate’ in the Legislature the members of the Democrat Caucus even fled the State in hopes that the vote could not be held due to the lack of a quorum. The unions organized ‘invasion’ protests and occupied the Capitol Building for days. Failing that, they presented petitions calling for a “Recall” election of the governor and some legislators, which then was unsuccessful.

Then late in the year, the same thing happened in Michigan and the unions bussed in from out of state thugs to protest, tear down a tent with people inside, and even physically attack a FOX reporter, which was captured on camera. Going along with the administration, the broadcast networks and CNN declined to show any of this misconduct, and some even denied it happened and accused the opposition of being the instigators of the uproar.

A member of the Democrat caucus in the Michigan Legislation even stated from the floor words to the effect that ‘if this passed there would be blood’. And where were the Nation’s leaders in the Democrat Party in criticizing this conduct and speaking? As of mid-January, not one word of criticism has been heard from any of them. So it would seem that they are in complete approval of this ‘uncivilized’ conduct. Further, they are quick to accuse the opposition of ‘obstruction’ and ‘non-cooperation’ in the fiscal negotiations that have become necessary because of the failure of the Congress to address the budget problems they, and their predecessors, have brought about.

It should be remembered that since the election of 2006, when the Democrats gained majority status in both houses, not one budget has been passed. It is Constitutionally mandated that one must be passed each year but they have passed “continuing resolutions” to operate the Federal Government. The House, since the 2010 election returned a Republican majority, has passed a number of budgets but Democrat Senate Majority Leader Reid has refused to even assign them to a committee, so no vote ever occurred.

We will not have a chance to change this until 2014, but it all should be remembered, and we should be seeking candidates to replace those who are so obnoxious.

Herman Cain: The New York Times is a Racist Newspaper

December 20, 2012 Leave a comment

TWG: A few questions for the race-pimpin’  “professor” Adolph….. Since Martin Luther King was also a Republican, how do you sleep at night knowing so certainly in your feeble, distorted little mind that he, too, was just another “Stepin Fetchits” traitor to his own race?   Should Republicans and Conservatives just put a stop to all of this hate on your end and establish a law  not to ever hire a black American in their corporations, organizations, political offices, homes, military…. You know, because ANY Black American who would work with or for a cracka is so obviously a race-trading cretin lacking integrity…. in your deranged, hateful, bigoted brain?  And here’s a question for everyone else…. WHY ARE THESE BEASTS TEACHING THIS TRASH TO OUR CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES?

Apparently there is a professor of political science at the University of Pennsylvania named Adolph Reed Jr. Professor Reed considers it a “puzzle” that there are black Republicans, and writes off said black Republicans as “tokens” who are so deplorable, he doesn’t even want to hear about them anymore.

That was pretty much the theme of Professor Reed’s rant in the Wednesday New York Times about the appointment of U.S. Rep. Tim Scott to replace U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina. Like me, Scott is that most curious of animals – a black Republican – and Professor Reed makes it clear that he considers black Republicans to be little more than Stepin Fetchits, soulless black people who are willing to serve the white master at the expense of their true brethren:…..(Con’t)


FL Senate President Laughs At Constitutionalist, Calls For Nullifiers To Be “Shot” & “Hanged”

TWG: Really, Gaetz? Careful what you ask for, you fascist little pig.

FL Senate President Laughs At Constitutionalist, Calls For Nullifiers To Be “Shot” & “Hanged”

Republican Florida State Senate President Don Gaetz showed the true face of tyrannical RINOs in the Republican Party when he openly laughed and mocked the Constitutional principles espoused by KrisAnne Hall, an attorney and former prosecutor, who supports the Tenth Amendment and the right of the States to nullify unconstitutional laws implemented by the federal government. However, it appears that Mr. Gaetz also indicated his support of the tactic of the seventh President of the United States Andrew Jackson in how he would deal with “nullifiers.” He would have them shot and hung.

According to Mrs. Hall, she not only spoke to Gaetz, but even wrote him and explained the positions of men like James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and Alexander Hamilton on State sovereignty. She then received what can only be explained as a violence threatening email from Gaetz to anyone that would support nullification. Here’s what Sen. Gaetz wrote:

Thank you for your email and for your passionate views.
Like you, I believe Obamacare is unconstitutional and wrong-headed policy. I have consistently voted in the Florida Legislature for legislation that affirms our state’s options, obligations and sovereignty under the United States Constitution. I am working every day to ensure the election of national candidates who will repeal and replace this extraordinarily bad policy.

As to nullification, I tend to favor the approach used by Florida’s first Governor, Andrew Jackson:

It is said that one evening, while he was president, General Jackson was interrupted in his reading in his bedroom by an alarmed military aide who breathlessly reported, “Mr. President, the “nullifiers” are in front of the Executive Mansion with torches and guns. They are screaming that each state has the right to decide for itself which federal laws to follow. They threaten to burn us down if you will not agree with them.”

Without lifting his head from his reading, Andrew Jackson said, “Shoot the first nullifier who touches the Flag. And hang the rest.

Chaplain, I have sworn an oath on my father’s Bible before Almighty God to preserve, protect and defend the constitution and government of the United States. And that’s exactly what I intend to do. Count me with Andrew Jackson.

Senator Don Gaetz

Apparently Senator Gaetz is completely ignorant of the Constitution concerning the Tenth Amendment, or has at best, a warped understanding of it, which leads him to threaten not only people like yours truly and Mrs. Hall, but all those who support State nullification of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).


An Important Message From John Aglialoro

November 2, 2012 1 comment



Next week, we will vote in the most important election of our lifetimes. So today, we will not mince words.

I employ over 1000 people. From Democrats to Republicans, from Libertarians to Independents, I employ 1000 smart, hard working, and dedicated people from all walks of life. And, from the janitors to the desk jockeys, all are Capitalists.

Yes, all of them.

Not that being a Capitalist is a job requirement when you come to work for me. It’s not – not explicitly anyway. Implicitly however, absolutely.

Here’s how it works: I have work that needs to be done. You have the skill required to do the work. We freely enter into an arrangement by which you will trade with me your time for my money. We negotiate a wage and agree to terms. You come to work. I pay you.

Ahhhh… Capitalism.

Somehow though, this very simple idea, of individuals freely trading value for value, has managed to elude the current administration.

Patriots, I’d like for you to read a recent conversation I had with David Kelley of The Atlas Society and afterwards, I implore you, get out there and vote!


In Liberty,
John Aglialoro

To Win or Not to Win

Producer John Aglialoro and Atlas Society founder David Kelley discuss the election….

Aglialoro: It’s no surprise that, after 55 years since Atlas Shrugged was published, Ayn Rand is still being attacked with total disdain by the socialist left.
Kelley: John, we knew up front that the movie reviewers, who overwhelmingly subscribe to the socialist left ideology, would trash Atlas Shrugged Part 2, despite the obvious improvements in cinematic quality. They hate the message, and that takes precedence over the artistry in their eyes. You wanted the film to come out before the election because you felt it has an important bearing on the political choice the public faces. Do you think that the critics felt the same connection? That they want to see Obama re-elected?
Aglialoro: Yes. The question I have is: Why does the public continue to embrace the political class, who provide nothing but unemployment checks,  over the entrepreneurial class, who provide the opportunity for prosperity? That’s not what America is about. Ultimately, this election is a referendum on capitalism.
Kelley: You remind me of something Ayn Rand said in 1972, about the McGovern-Nixon election. Watching the Democratic convention that year, she noted that the older politicians still believed in capitalism, even though they wanted to hang regulations and welfare programs around its neck, but that McGovern was deeply anti-capitalist. He wanted to redistribute income on a massive  scale, with his proposal for a guaranteed income regardless of work. It looks as if we have the same issue in 2012.
Aglialoro: Exactly. Obama is not a capitalist. He believes in government control of producers, he opposes individualism, he believes—morally speaking—that “we are our brothers’ keepers,” that “we are all connected,” that you should love your neighbor over yourself. This is the antithesis of Rand’s individualism. She invoked the principle of individual rights, with government protecting the freedom of every individual person to pursue his or her own course in life.
Of course we are charitable to those who are down on their luck. But our immigrant ancestors  did not come here for the sake of their neighbors. They came to America for themselves, and for their families, the people they loved.

Obama cannot bring himself to say that he is a capitalist, and it would be a lie if he did. And that means he has abandoned the vision of the Founding Fathers.
Kelley: Going back to 1972, after McGovern lost in a landslide, Rand attributed it to the American sense of life, the American instinct for individualism even if it is not articulated clearly in principle.
Aglialoro: Although too many Americans are generally unthinking about politics and elections, I have always believed that the American sense of life will come through. I have always been confident in the American love of freedom, of self-responsibility, of opportunity, of the love of winning over the fear of losing. I have to believe that, at the crucial moment, the American people will make the right choice of individual self-worth over the detestable commandment to live for others.
Kelley: And if they don’t?  If Obama is re-elected and we continue down the path of collectivism, what about Atlas Shrugged Part 3? Will there be any point?
Aglialoro: Not likely. What is the point, once he is re-elected? It will mean that America has decided to continue down that slippery slope, ultimately down to the dustbin of history where the Greek and Roman empires dwell.
Kelley: Atlas Shrugged—Rand’s novel, and the two adaptations you have produced—teach us that individuals who produce, who support themselves and create value, at any level, from the janitor in Hank Rearden’s mills to Rearden himself, are the Atlases holding up the world. What would you say to these people on the eve of the election?
Aglialoro: November 6th, my friends, is a more important moment in our country than any since our Founding Fathers in the 1770s offered their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to create a free country. On November 6th, you face the choice whether or not to affirm their vision of America, whether or not to affirm the values that Ayn Rand made so clear in Atlas Shrugged. Your immediate imperative is to vote Obama out….  

Hopefully, if  you do, we won’t have to shrug.

Brandon Darby: Anarchists Plan to Take Down Emergency Medical Services at RNC

August 26, 2012 Leave a comment

[TWG: Soooooooooo…… the ows marxist shitstains are going to play terrorists again. Nothing new there. They’ve been trying to terrorize American citizens for years now. I just hope the police are ready for those vermin this time.  I wonder how long those terrorists can pull this crap before Conservatives and other Patriotic Americans start putting them all in a cardboard box and shoving them down the sewer, where they belong.   Below this article I’ve included the list of maggots behind the ows terrorist klan as well as an interesting read about that terrorist group, written by Thomas Sowell.]


Brandon Darby: Anarchists Plan to Take Down Emergency Medical Services at RNC

by John Sexton 25 Aug 2012

Yesterday, I interviewed my co-worker Brandon Darby as he was traveling toward the Republican National Convention in Florida. The interview focused on strategies used by anarchist protesters at the 2008 Republican National Convention and how those strategies will be used once again next week by the Occupy movement.

In addition to trying to shut down bridges to prevent delegates from reaching the convention center next week, Brandon has learned that a subgroup of Occupy is looking to shut down EMS communications throughout the city.

The video that goes along with this interview is one Brandon took at the RNC convention while working undercover for the FBI in 2008. Some of it is a bit jumpy, but you’ll see some of the street blocking tactics as well as several instances of individuals throwing items onto a freeway from an overpass.

Both the audio and video have been edited for content and brevity. What follows is the seven minute interview/video and a complete transcript of Brandon’s comments as they appear in the clip:


Brandon Darby: The video I gave you is interesting because it’s a video surveillance I took of one section of the Republican National Convention welcoming committee. Several of the clips of video were used in the prosecution of David McKay and Bradley Neal Crowder.

What happened at the Republican National Convention in ’08 is that the overall liberal, Democratic protests were organized by a group called United for Peace and Justice. Now these were the mainstream liberal protesters, not the ones who would violate the law or violate a police order or anything crazy. Now what was interesting is that the same group of people organizing the mainstream liberal protests also organized a breakaway group called the RNC Welcoming Committee and it was 500 to 1,000 anarchists. And their goal was to shut down the Republican National Convention by any means necessary.

Now they had meetings for a long time before and what they ultimately decided to do—and it was folks like Lisa Fithian leading the training, and I know because I was in the training…undercover —but what they did is they mapped out the city, maps with corporate targets, business leaders home addresses, and Republican delegates home addresses, and also where the hotels were the delegates were going to be staying in. And they handed out these maps and then they showed people videos of Molotov cocktails and various other criminal behavior and asked everyone to be creative and feel free to use what they called a diversity of tactics and to make sure the Republican National Convention can’t occur, you know, can’t happen.

In a later planning session they mapped out the area around the convention center; they divided it into several sections. Then each group of anarchists of their RNC Welcoming Committee—which we now call Occupy—each group was responsible for a different sector. They had organized everyone into three groups of people. There was the red, the yellow, and the green. What they decided was that the yellow group was going be the group that would be arrestable. They were the ones who were going to get arrested. They were going to chain their arms and hands together in PVC pipe so that the cops couldn’t cut ‘em out without injuring them. But they were going to chain themselves across the major arteries so that the delegates could not get to the convention center.

Now, Lisa Fithian and the organizers, they realized that the police were not going to allow a group to set up and do that, allow the yellow group to do that. So they figured they could use the green group, the green group being the mainstream liberal and Democratic protesters who would never violate the law intentionally. So the organizers would manipulate the green group to get into the street and protest. The green group’s not realizing that they’re being used to cover illegal behavior that’s interfering with the rights of other Americans to assemble. And then when the police told the green group to get out they would slow the green group down and try to keep them from getting out of the road. Well eventually the green group would get out of the road. And if that didn’t give the yellow group enough time to finish locking down across the road, then the red group—which are the black mask wearing anarchists would come in—and the red group would actually begin to attack police.

Last time they made riot shields that they had made out of stolen traffic barrels and the riot shields had protruding sharpened deck screws from them. And they had their signs where, their protests signs were made out of heavy, heavy sticks so they could actually have a weapon against police but police couldn’t take them or else they were violating their rights to free speech.

And they would send the red group in to attack the police and then the red group would flee and then that would give the yellow group enough time to lock down and shut the RNC down. Well what was interesting about it, is that when the red group fled then the police would treat the protesters—because they’re all one protest—they would treat them as though they had just been attacked, because they had been. Well then the green group would look like they were innocent protesters who were getting attacked and in their minds they were because they didn’t realize that Lisa Fithian and the leaders were using them as part of this effort to violently attack police and attack conservatives.

So the buses that did get through when they were held up by the yellow group, then the red group would come back and the red group threw bricks and flagstones through the windows, they slashed the tires of the buses, they threw bleach and urine in the delegates faces and they attacked the buses and the people on the buses. And that’s what they’re going to do this time.

So that was…the red, yellow, green concept is very important for people to realize that that’s what’s occurring. So people have to remember, this isn’t a bunch of unorganized and disorganized kids. This is Lisa Fithian, she’s the one who led the unions and the anarchists to shut down Seattle at the ’99 World Trade Organization protest in Seattle. It’s not something to play around with because when this is all said and done the FBI informants will have stopped bomb plots just as they and I did last time. And when that happens conservatives need to rally around because the left media and the entire left establishment who claims they have nothing to do with these anarchists, they will defend them and dirty the name of anybody who exposes them just as they did to me and just as they did to Andrew. They will defend their darlings and attack the character of anyone who holds them accountable and calls them out. And that’s what’s going to happen this time. We need to stand up as a movement, recognize what the threats are, and we need to defend the people who are keeping us safe and hold accountable and demand accountability for the people who are trying to interfere with our rights to assemble.

The other thing that they’re trying to do is that they have a coms group—and this is breaking news you need to know this—they have a coms group that is trying to shut down the EMS communications structure for the city. That’s really happening. They’re trying to shut down the communications structure for the city for law enforcement and emergency medical personnel.

People don’t realize that these demonstrations, they have a sophisticated communications structure. Like before they have one of these demonstrations, whether it’s this one or whether it’s WTO or whether it’s, whatever it is, whether it’s IMF…When these people when this global movement of anarchists that protests these things they have to rent space and have extra cooling systems and have massive cable networks and they have to have to have a lot of communications equipment, a lot of computer equipment. It’s not like a bunch of people are going to show up and talk on their cell phones. They have some massive computer equipment and their goal is to shut us down.

And no, they’re not going to do the same thing at the DNC, that’s the thing, is because the radicals feel like the average liberal is confused but they have dehumanized completely the conservative. And so they feel they are entitled to take our rights away when they’re not going to do that at the DNC. That’s the difference.



Article: Occupy Wall Street, By Thomas Sowell





The 99%: Official list of Occupy Wall Street’s supporters, sponsors and sympathizers

October 31, 2011 – 10:48 am – by Zombie

The Occupy Wall Street movement has received so much media coverage in recent weeks that it’s nearly impossible to keep abreast of all the developments. So many endorsements and criticisms coming from all directions enter the news cycle in such rapid succession that even the most dedicated news junkies may have missed out on many of the pronouncements. Supporters and detractors of OWS both might find it useful to have a handy all-inclusive list of who has endorsed or embraced the protest.

To satisfy that demand, we hereby present a list of groups, organizations, individuals and entities that have expressed their support for, sponsorship of, or sympathy for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Note: All entries on this list are real and verified. Below each entry you will find a series of source links documenting the support for OWS. We have striven in almost all cases to reference either first-hand statements by the groups or individuals themselves, hosted on their own Web sites; or videos of the people in question voicing their support for OWS at various Occupations; or news reports from reliable mainstream networks; or articles by publications or organizations sympathetic to the Occupy movement; or indisputable evidence, whatever the source. As a result, it cannot be claimed that these statements of support were made up or distorted by detractors of the Occupy movement.

As each new controversial endorsement has appeared over the last month, OWS supporters have dismissed them one by one as “isolated examples” that don’t reflect any overall trend toward extremism. But when viewed in aggregate like this, it becomes much more difficult to dismiss any individual endorsement as an aberration; instead, an undeniable pattern emerges.

This list is obviously incomplete; we hope to update it over the upcoming days and weeks.

If you think we’ve left out any well-known endorsers for which there is solid evidence, then please post suggestions and evidentiary links in the comments section; but please try to supply links that will stand up to any potential claims of misrepresentation.

If you disagree with the inclusion of any of the entries on this list, please post your reasoning and any contravening source links in the comments section, and we will take the evidence into account when updating the list.

Members of the media, bloggers, activists, OWS supporters and detractors as well are all free to repost this list, in whole or in part, without any restrictions. Do note, however, that it may be updated over time, so make sure to get the latest version.

And without further ado, here is…

Romney backers ignore Fast and Furious at own peril

[TWG Note: This is SO true.  Romney won’t fool Second Amendment Advocates, and he sure won’t be getting our votes.  The TEA Parties, GOP and RNC made a huge mistake putting Romney at the top of the pile.  Romney’s anti-gun policies, along with his refusal to address the Fast & Furious scheme has taken him out of consideration for many of us.  Someone said last week  “Asking me if I will vote for Romney or for obama is like asking me if I want to be punched in the nose or kicked in the balls.”  Yes, indeed.]


Romney backers ignore Fast and Furious at own peril

David Codrea's photo

Gun Rights Examiner

Top Republicans have identified “a half-dozen very Mitt-specific political dangers” GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney “must navigate to unite the party and attract skeptical conservatives and independents,” Politico reported yesterday, and none of them deal with taking a stand on the Fast and Furious gunwalking criminal operation and the current administration’s role in it.

Among their concerns: The candidate “says stuff he shouldn’t say.” Romney “can’t connect with voters.” His base must be broadened. He faces “anti-Mormon” voter prejudice. His association with prominent backers like Donald Trump taints him with the “birther” brush. People aren’t convinced he can fix the economy.

The merits of these concerns are debatable, but one point is not: Nowhere in a list of priorities articulated for public dissemination by “top Republican officials” is there any indication that Fast and Furious is even on their radar…..(Con’t)
