Day of Action
From the Los Angeles Times
Occupy Wall Street vowed to mark the two-month anniversary of its protests with a "day of action" Thursday, beginning with a march to the heart of the financial district -- the New York Stock Exchange -- that drew hundreds of chanting, sign-waving supporters to lower Manhattan.

By 8 a.m., demonstrators had gathered near Zuccotti Park, their former encampment, chanting "All day, all week, Occupy Wall Street!" as they prepared to march the few blocks to the stock exchange. They vowed to later occupy about 16 subway stations before carrying their protest to Foley Square outside Manhattan's courthouses.

Glenn Beck did some research of his own and what a suprise...


Hmmmmmm….November 17th???  Why November 17th???  Of all days, why would a leftist organization pick November 17th to stage a mass protest??

The CFR reminds us of the significance of that date:

What is November 17?

A radical, leftist Greek terrorist group, also known as 17 N or N 17, with a tiny membership and a loathing for America, the West, and capitalism…

What sort of attacks has November 17 launched?

The organization’s first known attack came in December 1975, when the CIA’s Athens station chief was shot with a .45-caliber pistol, November 17’s favorite weapon. Since then, the group has claimed responsibility for twenty-one murders, including the killings of a U.S. Navy captain, a U.S. defense attaché, a Turkish diplomat, and a British defense attaché. November 17’s initial attacks were directed at senior U.S. officials and Greek public figures, but during the 1980s the group expanded its operations to include bombings of ordinary citizens and property.

Where did November 17 get its name?

From the November 17, 1973, student uprising at Athens Polytechnic University. Twenty students were killed when Greek army tanks suppressed the protests, and the group formed in part to retaliate against the ruling military junta.

–So, we have a far left protest group, with tons of communist, socialist, and anarchist ties

–We have a group that’s focused on the banking meltdown and it’s resulting potential cuts in public services, a situation playing out most prominently in Greece.

–We have one of the most prominent academic supporters specifically calling for Greek style riots.

–We have a poster made for the protests, aside from the obvious Communist imagery, that utilizes tanks.   Why tanks?  Again–”Twenty students were killed when Greek army tanks suppressed the protests…”

We’re supposed to believe that this organization HAD NO IDEA that they were scheduling their highest profile event so far, on the exact date that inspired a Communist terrorist group that hated American capitalism?

They MUST have known.  THEY MUST HAVE KNOWN.




So what does that mean for us?




One 17N protester has his answer: “we’re going to burn this shi* to the motherfu**ing ground on the 17th!”

(As a guy who lived through the media’s constant attacks on Glenn Beck because he did a speech on the same day that Martin Luther King did a speech, I just couldn’t resist.)

UPDATE:  I admit to starting this post with half tongue-in-cheek as mockery for our treatment by the media for 8.28.  But, honestly—I’m convincing myself a little.  The official Occupy Wall Street site is literally calling the march the “N17 Mass Direct Action.”

Again from the Council on Foreign Relations: “November 17, Revolutionary People’s Struggle, Revolutionary Struggle (Greece, leftists)” is “A radical, leftist Greek terrorist group, also known as 17 N or N 17” who aims to launch “an anti-capitalist popular uprising against the Greek middle and upper-classes.”   When is the last time you heard someone say “we have our Christmas party on D22.”  “I was born on F9.” Who says “N17” for November 17th?  Is that common here in America?

I know their public excuse for the “direct action” is two months of “occupation.”  I understand that is what they are saying publicly.  But, this is just the leadership of this group honoring a bunch of their heroes with a subtle tip of the cap.  The true believers get a chuckle while the useful idiots march in solidarity with something that they don’t understand.

National Alert System

Hmmm, I wonder how much chaos will there be tomorrow for those who didn't get the message about the Nationwide Test tomorrow?

Nationwide Emergency Alert System (EAS) Test Introduction
FEMA, in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), will conduct the first nationwide Emergency Alert System (EAS) Test on November 9, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern.
FEMA, the FCC, and NOAA’s vision for improving the EAS is incremental, which means testing the readiness and effectiveness of the EAS as it currently exists today is the first step. A more effective and functional EAS requires continual testing to identify necessary improvements so that all levels of the system can better serve our communities and deliver critical information that will save lives and property.
EAS Participants provide a critical public service to the nation as the resilient backbone of alert and warning when all other means of communication are unavailable. EAS Participants include all broadcasters, satellite and digital radio and television, cable television and wireline video providers who ensure the system is at a constant state of readiness.
The nationwide EAS Test is not a pass or fail measure, nor will it specifically test Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) compliant equipment (although CAP compliant equipment should pass the Emergency Action Notification [EAN] live-code in the same manner as legacy EAS equipment).
FEMA and its federal partners understand that improving the EAS is a process that takes time. IPAWS has compiled experiential lessons learned and best practices from the Alaska EAS Tests in 2010 & 2011 as well as through the EAS rebuilding effort and tsunami live-code test in the U.S. Virgin Islands (located in the EAS Tests and Demonstrations section). Laboratory research is also being conducted at IPAWS.
IPAWS, in coordination with the FCC, is continually engaging the EAS Community through many activities, including information updates, workshops, roundtables, webinars, and on-site State and local EAS demonstrations to continue a solutions-oriented dialogue. IPAWS has also developed an external idea sharing website, A National Dialogue on the Emergency Alert System to discuss best practices and lessons learned from the EAS Community on a variety of topics that will support discussions during webinar and roundtable events.
The alert and warning landscape is in an important state of transition; from the current system of radio, television, cable, satellite, and wireline broadcast media-based alerting to a future system that integrates new technologies for a more universal access to alert and warning messages. Future testing of the EAS will assess the effectiveness and reliability of other technologies to achieve the ultimate goal of timely alert and warning to American public in the preservation of life and property.

The Occupy crises can no longer be denied

As a christian, you must now take the blinders from your eyes as this has now become blatantly a spiritual war. Between us(christians) and them(new age, the world.) Barbara Hubbard has been sounding the trumpets, and she is all for the Occupy movement. As many of you know, or possibly do not, she is a main-figure in the New Age Movement. This older smiling woman, has death behind her eyes, and if they were lasers, they would be pointed at us... From her Book: The Book of Co-creation
