Come back Monday and shutdown wall street and I'll pay attention otherwise this is a no news news event probably politically motivated.


Because the PTB would ONLY grant them their PERMIT on a weekend... So I guess you gotta choose your battles, hmmmm.


I had the same thought as Phoenix I admit. It seemed strange to try to shut down Wall Street on a day when it wasn't opened. Weekends being slow for news anyway - hence the traditional Friday "news dumps" for things TPTB want buried.

Permit or not, apparently not being successful since NYPD was ready, waiting and shut down access to most places the protestors were planning on occupying.

O yea: they been ready for this across the nation for quite some time. They watch the networks for just such an attempt to organize. Controls are already in place. their objective is to prevent any sort of situation like what is going on elsewhere. They won't shut down the social networks. they will monitor them and be there before anyone else is. You cannot protest if you cannot assemble where you have agreed to do so. it creates discord in the protestors because they don't know how to proceed since the assembly area is not available..uh surrounded by big guys with guns, badges, Vests, Helmets, Lions, Tigers, and Bears O My!
If they want to assemble they will need to find some other way to do so bypassing facebook . etc. If those who wish to assemble in this manor use social nets to organize they need to be aware, that the PTB will also be aware and there....first! . they will not be able to use any online service to do so. This is what they do. they have been waiting and watching for this for a very long time and they are prepared. The protestors will have to find another way. I am a conspiracy nut, and maybe even a little paranoid sometimes, but sometimes---even paranoid people are right.. this is the reality of the Internet and Social nets. Everyone knows..Everyone

It could be a blackout, well yeah, it is. Hell, Glenn Beck was even talking this "day of rage" last week. He's hell bent on the Marxist/communists/socialists agenda associated with this protest. So expect him to be covering this along with Theblaze.com (his associates). As far as everyone else in the MSM, well, they have until Monday to pay attention, if they don't, well, we know where they stand (which we know already)

Right!!!,

A permit held them at bay on the weekend just following the script huh.

My point stands by itself - if this was serious then permit shermit!

ATS Thread - New York Protestors and Bloombergs comments

Looks like they had government support for the protest in NYC. Might be why the media didnt care to much about it.

I can't find any references about this being 50,000 people. OP, where did you hear/read that?

An ATSer exaggerating? I think so.

So far what Ive found says there's been about 1,000 people so far, which isn't bad at all but it's no 50,000.

www.ology.com...

This report says it's been hundreds to thousands of protester, still no where the 50,000 mark.

www.munciefreepress.com...

This report says there's an expected 20,000 protesters but it hasn't reached those numbers yet.

news.gather.com...

I'll keep looking

Demonstrators 'Occupy Wall Street' to Protest Influence of Money on U.S. Politics

Not a blackout, as the coveage is FoxNews.

With whats being reported, and what the protestors are claiming I am reminded of the first gulf war and Husseins famous words -

Apparently this is the mother of all protests.....

50K? ......LOL. Show me 1500 people and I'd be surprised! I checked out the "live feed" and what I saw was about 150 people, sitting in some kind of park. There was some guy with a bullhorn and he was "running" a meeting of the 50K protestors(or 150) and they were discussing whether to take their signs down.

LIVE feed from wallstreet




My hand is reaching to cover my mouth as I yawn ( Yeeeawn.....). I dig the sleepy from my eye and I ask. Is this news ? A voice tells me no. Then why cover it? It's all hype for the 60's generation kum by ya hippies of days gone by. And for modern day liberal wanna be hippies trying to repeat history.

It ain't gonna work.


Every party needs a pooper, that's why I'm inviting you,
Party pooper, party pooper.
You can play your Mantovani, Debby Boone and Dan Hill, too,
Party killers, party pooper.
Won't you come and tell us all about your Branson vacation -
Bring a ream of photos, too.
Walk right in with your camcorder and shout, "Where's the party, Dude!".
We really need yoo-oo, we really need you!

Every party needs a pooper, so it might as well be you,
Party pooper, party pooper.
Bring lots of lutefisk and haggis, fruitcake, kim chee, too,
And we'll eat it and get nauseous.
You can dis my cuisine, say my house is a mess,
You can snoop around, too.
And don't forget the toilet humor and the songs about poo.
We really need yoo-oo, we really need you.

I have been wondering the same thing myself....I thought for sure this event would be seen in the MSM. Obviously...this (media blackout) is being done on purpose. I would just like to know who in (TPTB) are pulling the strings on this...what are their names? I wish I knew.

Your welcome.. What I think happened, and a few others touched on the topic, is the day they chose to do it. On a weekend, when nothing is going on. Although it is a nice change to have protests that arent hijacked by a group of morons intent on using the distraction to destroy property.

They need to do it again, but during the week when people, and media, are paying attention.

Lets not get too excited if Bloomberg can't make any more money.
Let him go back to Smith Barny.
We do not want to draw any more crowds just because of Bloomberg's say so.

We need some violent protests and riots here in America to kick start this revolution. pieceful protests are just tptb infultrating groups and giving people a false beleif that we have a voice and what we say matters.
