In keeping with the new media notion of crowdsourcing–enthusiastically embraced by the mainstream media when trawling through Sarah Palin’s emails–Big Government will be providing readers later today with links to a document drop consisting of thousands of emails.
The email archive, created by a private cyber security researcher, appears to contain messages shared by the left’s anarcho-socialist activists during the strategic and daily tactical planning of the “Occupy Wall Street” and broader “Occupy” campaign this fall.
Big Government received a tip about the existence of the archive, and we were able to contact the individual who compiled and posted it. He will describe the archive, and how he obtained the emails, later this morning exclusively on Big Government.
Through “crowdsourcing,” the media and the public will then be able to discover the truth behind the “Occupy” movement.
Per the 8800+ pages of emails (3900+ emails), the Occupy movement has been in the works for some time. Its leaders apparently intend for it to broaden out and intertwine with the Days of Rage global initiative, which is set to begin on Saturday, October 15th. They also intend the demonstrations to continue indefinitely, as suggested in the following email, dated Monday, October 10:
The true purpose of the Occupy movement appears to be further economic and governmental destabilization, at a time when the world is already facing major financial and political challenges. By embracing the Occupy movement, President Barack Obama, the Democrat Party, and their union allies may be supporting an effort to harm both the domestic and global economies; to create social unrest throughout the democratic world; and to embrace other radical causes, including the anti-Israel movement

Funny! I thought the bankers and paid government stooges allowing them carte blanche to commit fraud were already destabilizing the global economy, markets etc long before OWS appeared!
To try to pin the financial woes at this late stage on those who are protesting against it seems a rather desperate move. It shows they are scared of what is becoming a global chorus for them to go, and the criminal prosecutions to start.
Bottom line is, the OWS movement is not a controlled and organised entity, and is non-partisan. The media and those who oppose them are clutching at straws trying to pigeon-hole agendas and protestor demands to make it a partisan matter, but have so far failed.

Paul supporters need to hit the streets and take over the Occupy movement........which would probably lead to more violence

Yeah I fail to see how the OWS movement is doing any more damage than the governments and corporations already in charge.
I’m for some change and if it means the end of financial stability then so be it.
VIVA LA REVOLUCION
OWS is practice for bigger things to come. People are using this demonstration to learn logistics, improve communications and build a database of “useful idiots”. Next October the demonstrations will be more organized and better funded for the main goal, causing chaos in November 1012. What would be a natural government response to large scale mob violence in our major cities? Can we have valid elections if citizens in our major cities cannot freely move around? Would citizens be willing to give government more power during civil unrest? Once the situation calms down and we take the time to start the election process again, what would stop the process from happening again?

Again the socialist/communist "elite" are using well meaning dummies to promote their agenda for them.
The well meaning dummies seem to not comprehend that they are being led into slavery.
Socialism only works for those at the top same as the current system, only problem is with capitalism you do have a chance to break out and be your own person. With socialism there is no chance to be anything else but one of the herd.

The financial system has already collapsed, it's just being propped up by bail out money. Seems the right are just trying to pin the blame on OWS, which is pretty desperate to say the least. Global markets are in no way threatened by a bunch of hippy kids protesting.

Can't compare Iceland to the United States. Iceland has 300,000 people and is smaller than the state of Kentucky.
Too many people are getting lost in the "romance" of a French style revolution here in the US. The reality soon follows when the "elite" take control again and begin to rebuild how they see fit. Just study the fall and rise of Pre WWII Germany. A depressed Germany was pulled out of the doldrums by a very charismatic and well spoken "leader" who built a war machine unlike any seen in modern history.
Some of the major players backing the Occupy movement are also key influences in the "responsibility to protect" organization/movement that has swept through the middle east and parts of Africa in the past year. This movement also serves as the foundation for the Obama Doctrine. It is all a military doctrine that could easily be deployed in the US. Part of their doctrine aims at promoting global governance while allowing the international community to penetrate a nation state's borders under certain conditions.
Like I said, be careful what you wish for.
Why are we at war right now? Can anyone answer this for me? I know why, but i want to hear what others have to say.
