  2. I love these people! Hopefully the crowd will grow and grow until the message gets through to the cold-hearted rich! I wish I could be with them, but it is harvest time on the farm! May the Creator bless you and keep you safe from the goons that serve the rich. I am very glad to see they know the First Amendment to the Constitution. No where in it does it say the people need a permit to “peaceably assemble”. I bet the two who were arrested wearing bandanas were undercover cops. They always try to disrupt and discredit every peaceful protest.

  3. I don’t believe changing the name from “Day of Rage” to “Occupy Wall Street” could account for the less than hundreds that attended Saturday’s rally. Over stated in you article but truthfully -5,000 WATCHING on Live Stream? This was a total bomb.. oh sorry for the analogy. From my sources a few people really cared and rightfully so.. the Illuminati and the Bankers are the new untouchables. Nothing to see here…

      To be frank – I think the writing was on the wall for the US many years before Obama was elected. This massive debt did not accumulate solely in his term. A litany of bad decisions, over spending & embezzlements on this scale cannot be blamed on one person alone. I’m not American, but live in a country both heavily influenced by & closely allied to the US so I do try to keep an eye on events happening there because of how they will certainly impact us here. I wonder, as you sit there “enjoying” this if you fully realize the horrid ramifications a meltdown like this will have not just on your own country & it’s citizens but also globally.

      @ the protestors – More Power to you all

        Well said Pagan! I just had a conversation with a good friend of mine about this very topic. We came to your same conclusion. The sad thing was that my friend felt she needed to apologize for her point of view. That is a reflection of what this country stands for. We’ve become so docile that questioning authority is considered a bad thing. That is frightening beyond words. Blessings to you!

    Results of first ever Fed audit

    The first ever GAO audit of the Federal Reserve was carried out in the past few months due to the Ron Paul, Alan Grayson Amendment to the Dodd-Frank bill, which passed last year. Jim DeMint, a Republican Senator, and Bernie Sanders, an independent Senator, led the charge for a Federal Reserve audit in the Senate, but watered down the original language of the house bill (HR1207), so that a complete audit would not be carried out. Ben Bernanke, Alan Greenspan, and various other bankers vehemently opposed the audit and lied to Congress about the effects an audit would have on markets. Nevertheless, the results of the first audit in the Federal Reserve’s nearly 100 year history were posted on Senator Sander’s webpage earlier this morning.
    sanders.senate.gov/newsroom/news/?id=9e2a4ea8-6e73-4be2-a753- 62060dcbb3c3

    What was revealed in the audit was startling:
    $16,000,000,000,000.00 (TRILLION) had been secretly given out to US banks and corporations and foreign banks everywhere from France to Scotland. From the period between December 2007 and June 2010, the Federal Reserve had secretly bailed out many of the world’s banks, corporations, and governments. The Federal Reserve likes to refer to these secret bailouts as an all-inclusive loan program, but virtually none of the money has been returned and it was loaned out at 0% interest. Why the Federal Reserve had never been public about this or even informed the United States Congress about the $16 trillion dollar bailout is obvious the American public would have been outraged to find out that the Federal Reserve bailed out foreign banks while Americans were struggling to find jobs. To place $16 trillion into perspective, remember that GDP of the United States is only $14.12 trillion. The entire national debt of the United States government spanning its 200+ year history is only $14.5 trillion.

    The budget that is being debated so heavily in Congress and the Senate is only $3.5 trillion. Take all of the outrage and debate over the $1.5 trillion deficit into consideration, and swallow this Red pill: There was no debate about whether $16,000,000,000,000 would be given to failing banks and failing corporations around the world. In late 2008, the TARP Bailout bill was passed and loans of $800 billion were given to failing banks and companies. That was a blatant lie considering the fact that Goldman Sachs alone received 814 billion dollars. As is turns out, the Federal Reserve donated $2.5 trillion to Citigroup, while Morgan Stanley received $2.04 trillion. The Royal Bank of Scotland and Deutsche Bank, a German bank, split about a trillion and numerous other banks received hefty chunks of the $16 trillion. ****

    When you have conservative Republican stalwarts like Jim DeMint(R-SC) and Ron Paul(R-TX) as well as self identified Democratic socialists like Bernie Sanders all fighting against the Federal Reserve, you know that it is no longer an issue of Right versus Left. When you have every single member of the Republican Party in Congress and progressive Congressmen like Dennis Kucinich sponsoring a bill to audit the Federal Reserve, you realize that the Federal Reserve is an entity onto itself, which has no oversight and no accountability.
    Americans should be swelled with anger and outrage at the abysmal state of affairs when an unelected group of bankers can create money out of thin air and give it out to megabanks and supercorporations like Halloween candy. The list of institutions that received the most money from the Federal Reserve can be found on page 131 of the GAO Audit and are as follows:

    Citigroup: $2.5 trillion($2,500,000,000,000)
    Morgan Stanley: $2.04 trillion ($2,040,000,000,000)
    Merrill Lynch: $1.949 trillion ($1,949,000,000,000)
    Bank of America: $1.344 trillion ($1,344,000,000,000)
    Barclays PLC (United Kingdom): $868 billion* ($868,000,000,000)
    Bear Sterns: $853 billion ($853,000,000,000)
    Goldman Sachs: $814 billion ($814,000,000,000)
    Royal Bank of Scotland (UK): $541 billion ($541,000,000,000)
    JP Morgan Chase: $391 billion ($391,000,000,000)
    Deutsche Bank (Germany): $354 billion ($354,000,000,000)
    UBS (Switzerland): $287 billion ($287,000,000,000)
    Credit Suisse (Switzerland): $262 billion ($262,000,000,000)
    Lehman Brothers: $183 billion ($183,000,000,000)
    Bank of Scotland (United Kingdom): $181 billion ($181,000,000,000)
    BNP Paribas (France): $175 billion ($175,000,000,000)

    IT WILL BE INTERESTING AS TO HOW MUCH ATTENTION (AS WELL AS THE SLANT) THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA GIVES THIS UNBELIEVABLE POSITION OF OUR GOVERNMENT HAS PLACED US IN WITH NEVER PREVIOUSLY HAVING AN AUDIT OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE.

    I AM CONFIDENT THAT WE WILL HEAR SOMETHING LIKE THE FED HAD TO GIVE STIMULUS TO WHOM THE $16 TRILLION WENT TOO BECAUSE IF WE HAD NOT ALLOWED THIS IT WOULD BE THEIR COLLAPSE AND THE OURS.

    HAS ANYONE EVER HEARD OF CLOWARD AND PIVEN ECONOMICS? (PARAPHRASING) IT INVOLVES TWO HARVARD PROFESSORS WHOSE BOOK SAID TO CHANGE ANY GOVERNMENT’S ECONOMIC SYSTEM INTO A SOCIALIST ONE IT SIMPLY DRIVES THEIR ECONOMY INTO THE DITCH THEN THE CITIZENS ALLOW THE GOVERNMENT TO DO WHAT THEY WISH TO SAVE THEM.

    • If executives knew their instititutions like Lehman and Bear Sterns were going bankrupt, what did they do with the money? This money was nothing more than a golden parachute for the top financial executives who took the money and left U.S. taxpayers sitting bewildered in the audience with the lights glaring in their eyes while the magicians vanished in a puff of smoke. It would interesting to see just how many foreign bank accounts and beach-front property deals sprang up in lieu of this bailout in the Caymans, Bermuda, Costa Rica, Virgin Islands, Mexico and the Mediterranean. Most of these people will never be prosecuted. They are instead watching the smoke ascend higher and higher from the finanical conflagration they created from their seaside terrace.

        So true Alvin!
        I hope people do their research on the Federal Reserve. It is not an American Institution, not part of the federal government although many make that assumption
        Its a private bank.
        So, perhaps Congress will decide to disband the Fed and be responsible for coining the money. The guys on the sea side terraces will answer to a Higher Authority, and maybe someday an irate, awake, American electorate- if we can wake up before earth changes accelerate.

    In a movement meant to rival change wrought by the Arab Spring, Kalle Lasn of the counterculture magazine AdBusters, organized a Twitter led protest Saturday called Occupy Wall Street.

    In response, thousands gathered in New York’s Financial District.

    The Wall Street subway station stairwell was closed on one side, as multiple blocks around Broadway and Wall Street were cordoned off and bound by a heavy police presence.

    Endorsed by the hacking group Anonymous, the police were taking no chances. But looking at an army of bored officers racking up overtime, the general response was summed up by one young New York City officer: “If you find the protest, let us know, because we haven’t heard a thing about it since we got here.”

  8. When I read the line “Inspired by events around the world, she drew the analogy to Tahrir Square in Egypt and said the power of the people is leading to change.”, I had a feeling of dread. The protests that have been going on overseas are starting to arrive at our doorstep. I have nothing factual to base these feelings on, just something I “see”. Please pray that I’m wrong.

      • I apologize. I need to be clearer about what I was trying to say. I do not like the Wall Street gang. They are deceitful, greedy, and a few other words that I don’t use. “The love of money is the root of all evil”. I agree with Alvin that will meet their appointed fate against an Almighty God. I pray that they repent and turn away from their greed and lust for money.

        My fear is for the protesters. If their protest is purely against the greed and power
        coming from Wall Street all the others, I am with them. But I worry that outsiders, those who might infiltrate with a devious purpose in mind, intermingle with the protesters. I worry that violence will break out and harm will come to innocent people. I’ve seen it happen before. I lived through the 60’s. It’s difficult for me to explain what I “see”. This is what I’m praying I’m wrong about.

        I hope that explains what I said a little better.

    The focus on investment banking and Wall street in my opinion is in err. Here is why: We are all gods creation and when a society exists that promotes the individual over the community, that society becomes more and more corrupt as it progresses down the path of the individual becoming the (unknowingly false) supreme being. All of us are inherently corrupt.
    The power of accountability becomes less transparent because those in charge have good reason to hide and protect their dirty and unjust means of self promotion. Don’t hide your faces and let the darkness prevail- admit to your weakness and rejoice in the fact that we share a common benevolent creator. Where we can find refuge and seek guidance. Look inward and measure your actions by your holy script use the knowledge provided by your understanding of our shared dilemma, but don’t point your finger and say those people they are the guilty ones or it’s because of them my family suffers. It is an on going mistake that we have allowed and have yet to correct. My wisdom is “when we see our error and we correct our path, only then will we be welcomed into Heaven”.
