National Security Beta Test at Zuccotti Park

I've often wondered what would impel an individual to gather together with thousands of other like minded into what is for all practical purposes a steel ringed pen and literally take up residence in sleeping bags and tents surrounded by surveillance trucks, various other "security" apparatus and heavily armed police. While the media alternately extols and censures the activities of the OWS "protesters", it is becoming increasingly obvious that, much like the chain linked "free speech zones" which we became familiar with during the respective Republican and Democratic conventions during the run up to the last presidential election, something quite anomalous and even grotesque is taking place across the American political landscape and specifically in respect of the First Amendment. Apparently the questionable tactic of "occupation" is playing right into the hands of our national security police state as the disaffected minions of dissidents chose to conform and cooperate with their own internment and sequestration all in the name of "free speech", all the while being confined, identified, surveilled, video and audio taped and perhaps subjected to other less identifiable technological forms of harassment such as ELF radio waves. Nick Turse provides some valuable insight into the ongoing national security Beta test to which the willing are being subjected to at Zuccotti Park.

Perhaps because the inmates of the steel ringed play pen are being blanketed with such intrusive means of constant surveillance, some of their number in other venues have expressed a prickly sensitivity to attempts to record their activities and have resorted to some rather heavy handed and "authoritarian" tactics to dissuade even the most innocuous attempts to do so, as inveterate gadfly Adam Kokesh soon discovers

OCCUPY WALL STREET-A GEORGE SOROS JOINT


Even the most cursory examination of the highly staged political theatrics and controlled media circus of the OWS movement reveals the unmistakeable handprints of a highly organized and heavily funded complex nexus of organizations, foundations, and unions the existence of which belies transparent attempts to characterize this latest emanation of the international social media and various "color revolutions" of the past decade as a spontaneous popular uprising erupting from the engineered financial crisis of 2008. Arising from the interconnected matrices of political, financial, advertising and media agencies which brought Obama out of relative obscurity to the US presidency, coroneted him as Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and elevated him to an unprecedented term as UN Security Council president, we can discern the same operant forces which also will likely result in his re-election. OWS is undoubtedly part of the blueprint to ensure this predictable outcome. Indeed, in the equally consistent demographic and socio-political component of the OWS movement can be discerned the self same constituency which massed on the grounds of Chicago's Lincoln Park in November of 2008, ushering in the regime of the man whom Cornell West has subsequently called "the black puppet of Wall Street" and whom Texe Marrs, with perhaps with a bit more cogency, has designated as "Rothschild's Choice". It is no accident that these two unusually astute commentators coming from opposite ends of the political spectrum and across the nations increasing racial divide have characterized the latest emanation of the imperial presidency as the pawn of respective financial colossi. In a political system where it is generally agreed that the presidency is bought and sold to the highest bidder one only need to look at Obama's top financial contributors to understand that despite his increasingly populist rhetoric Obama is beholden to the very financial predators which have generated such unrelenting animosity from his most ardent supporters in the OWS movement: Goldman Sachs, CitiBank, JPMorgan Chase et al. Of course there is yet another avowed bĂȘte noire of the left which received the unqualified endorsement and support of then Senator Obama in 2006 and 2008 in two major speeches to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the most powerful and heavily funded congressional lobby in Washington. Breaking with established policy, Mr. Obama publicly called for the unification of Jerusalem under control of the state of Israel. Greeted with howls of indignation from the Palestinian Authority which he had only recently been courting with his tacit support of future Palestinian state, Obama's reversal was seen as a stark betrayal. Such an unprecedented pronouncement was however warmly embraced and celebrated by the Israelis who made bold to launch the horrific and brutal invasion of Gaza, Operation Cast Lead, coinciding with Obama's election in November of 2008, only days after which the IDF tanks were rolling into Gaza while Israeli jets were unleashing white phosphorus bombs on a defenseless civilian populace. Meanwhile, basking in the warm and fuzzy glow of the apotheosis of their savior, the masses of teary eyed and overjoyed Obamanites not only countenanced such atrocities committed in their names but completely ignored the wholesale slaughter of the men, women and children of Gaza. Thus the billion dollar Obama presidential campaign financed by Wall Street investment banks and AIPAC and managed by AKP&D Media and Message's David Axelrod had its decided and intended effect, the legacy of which we are witnessing today in the same blind, gullible and highly suggestible undiscerning minions of OWS as the NATO/US juggernaut reduces the once prosperous Muslim nation of Libya to a smoking and bloody abattoir presided over by US/UK agents of Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.



Meanwhile as Obama's poll numbers continued to slide inversely to record and rising unemployment and inflation, as the economy rapidly deteriorated amidst record foreclosures, toxic mortgage backed securities, the astronomical debt of quadrillions of financial derivatives and trillions of taxpayer funded US Treasury issues continued to be doled out to US and Foreign Central Banks at the behest of Obama's cabinet cronies from Goldman Sachs, CitiBank, JPMorgan Chase, and the Federal Reserve and an assemblage of Clinton administration retreads such as Geithner, Summers, Rubin, Orszag, Emmanuel et al, a Vancouver based media and advertising firm, Adbusters Media Foundation, began laying the foundations of an obscure organization called Occupy Wall Street to engage and confront the Wall Street investment banks in the heart of New York City. "An anti-consumerist organization founded in 1990 by Kalle Lasn", AMF, supposedly inspired by the apparent success of the Tahrir Square uprising in early 2011 committed itself to mobilizing its more than 91,000 members to create a similar movement embodied in OWS. Assisted by New Orleans Service Employees International Union (SEIU) local head and founder of
ACORN, Wade Rathke (photo right) who called for "days of rage in ten cities around JP Morgan Chase" and supported by Stephen Lerner, SEIU board member (photo left), who called for a movement to "bring down the stock market". (SEIU of course was instrumental in bringing Barack Obama to the White House and continues to be a mainstay of his present presidential campaign) The result was the September 17 and October 1 protests which kicked off the OWS movement soon spread to other cities through the agency of AMF members. Lasn's prescription for social revolution is instructive in this regard.

Describing himself as someone who has “been a student of revolution all my life,” Lasnsaysthat in the summer of 2011 he and his fellow Adbusters staffers—especially senior editor Micah White —were "inspired" by the popular revolution that had recently occurred in Tunisia. Moreover, they “thought that America,” whose economy was in crisis, “was [also] ripe for this type of [mass] rage.” According to Lasn, Americans' anger stemmed chiefly from Wall Street financial speculators' violation of the “sense of fairness Americans have always believed in.”

Lasn
was also confident that young Americans' “despondency” over such concerns as “climate change,” “corruption in Washington,” and the “decline” of their country, greatly increased the likelihood that the U.S. might experience “a Tahrir moment” of sorts. (The reference was to Cairo's Tahrir Square, a focal point of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution.) Emboldened further by “that sort of anarchy cred” which the civil disobedience/“hacktivismgroup Anonymous had been demonstrating in recent times, Lasn and his Adbusters associates held brainstorming sessions on how they themselves might effect “some kind of a soft regime change” to diminish the political influence of “finances,” “lobbyists,” and “corporations.”

In an effort to
catalyze a protest movement against those forces, Lasn and Adbusters “put feelers out on our [Internet] forums” suggesting a mass demonstration in the hub of New York City's financial district. Thus was born the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, whose first public rally was held on September 17, 2011. After some OWS demonstrators subsequently became involved in conflicts with police officers, Lasn said that “police brutality actually helps the movement” by drawing media attention.

While Lasn
concedes that every popular movement faces the “danger” that its idealistic leaders may eventually “turn into monsters,” he nonetheless believes “it’s very important for us to win, and [to] worry about how badly we behave later—right now we need to pull the current monster down.http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/default.asp


Of the many disparate foundations and adjunct organizations of George Soros' Open Society Institute, the Tides Foundation was endowed with $24.6 million from the OSI and reportedly gave Adbusters Media Foundation $6.4 million since 2001. Another Soros organization, the Alliance for Global Justice, provided OWS directly with $206,000.
This is in keeping with the stated policy of other Soros fronts among many others such as the Democracy Alliance which has given "progressive organizations" some $150 million with the stated aim of "forming Wall Street progressive movements to end the domination of the economy, government culture and media by large corporations". While it may appear to the disinterested observer that the street theater of OWS is a spontaneous, singular and merely national phenomenon, the movement is but the latest emanation and culmination of decades of agit-prop subversion conducted by so-called Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) acting at the behest of diverse government funded institutes and foundations. The so-called "color revolutions" alluded to before which have taken place most notably across the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) of the former Soviet Union have been funded and ideologically managed by such agencies as the notorious National Endowment for Democracy (NED). The various color coded revolutions which to greater or lesser degrees have changed the socio-political landscapes in former Soviet Georgia, the Ukraine, Belarus and most recently Iran can be traced to the Rand Corporation. Indeed, Mr. Soros and his Open Society Institute which has close ties to the NED has apparently been active across the globe in fomenting the kind of agitation which has become the staple of various destabilizations from Myanmar to Belarus.

NED and George Soros' Open Society Institute led a campaign for regime change in league with the State Department by its own admission. Engdahl explained that the "State Department....recruited and trained key opposition leaders from numerous anti-government organizations in Myanmar" and ran its "Saffron Revolution" out of the Chaing Mai, Thailand US Consulate.
Street protesters were "recruited and trained, in some cases directly in the US, before being sent back to organize inside Myanmar." NED admitted funding opposition media, including the Democratic Voice of Burma radio. http://www.rense.com/general86/color.htm

The efforts of the State Department to fund and train the so-called April 6 movement in Egypt in prelude to the street demonstrations in Cairo and the subsequent occupation of Tahrir Square were in keeping with the covert attempts to subvert and destabilize the government of Hosni Mubarak in preparation for what was a de facto military coup and the establishment of martial law.

The same type of pattern can be readily discerned in the various Occupy movements now proliferating across the nation and in many foreign capitals. Again it is obvious that far from being the spontaneous efflorescence of popular discontent, these events have been planned for years in the think tanks of such government funded foundations such as the Rand Corporation, NED and numerous other organizations and have been carefully stage managed, funded and organized by a wide nexus of highly complex and interactive agencies with a decided and common political agenda. While great pains have been taken to portray the street gatherings as unpremeditated expressions of some hypothetical common will devoid of any external stimulus or centralized leadership, the very nature of the efforts to direct, channel and establish a collective identity, platform and purpose with a specific goal oriented towards tangible demands reveals at most only a common template of procedural parameters known as consensus building centered around a practice known as the "peoples microphone". This bizarre process in which the speaker addressing the group is subsequently echoed phrase for phrase by the entire group is the forum for so called consensus building and is itself an outgrowth of a system of verbal and non verbal "signals" emanating from Nuero-Linguistic Programming (NLP) a system of subliminal communication which has a little known and yet pervasive influence and practice among a wide spectrum of political and media personalities, including Barack Obama. It is best witnessed live in all of its dysfunctional and ludicrous glory, as Occupy Atlanta silences the efforts of John Lewis to address them.
This madhouse is not only a living testimony to the anarchic confusion which reigns within the ranks of the hopelessly dissociated Occupy delusories and their seemingly infinite capacities for unfocused and mindless digression but also serves as an object lesson in how easily the gullible, suggestible, and largely unthinking masses are misdirected into blind alleys of useless preoccupation by a cadre of provocateurs trained to exploit them to the ends of their own hidden agendas. Aside from having their movement discredited from the beginning and their own basic intelligence and sanity questioned beyond any reasonable doubt, these useful idiots in their willful ignorance, impotence and crippling sense of inferiority are being exploited to the core to bring about the chaos, disorder and mayhem prerequisite for the reflexive authoritarian crackdown which is the ultimate aim of their controllers.


"Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before." Rahm Emanuel
"I create crisis because crisis is that edge where change is possible" Lisa Fithian

With the self afflatus of an unquestioning sense of rectitude so characteristic of the
ideologue, the "community organizer" and muckety muck Lisa Fithian takes the winning words of former White House Chief of Staff and present lord mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, a step further. While the exploitation of existing crises for political purpose is the tried and true modus operandi of the politician, it is up the political operative and street agitator to fan the smoldering embers of slumbering public discontent into the flames of outright conflagration.The ability to significantly disrupt, impede and obstruct the customary routines of everyday social intercourse is the primary means to this end. As such an agenda is dependent upon the mass media for its propagation, dissemination and optimum mass exposure, the control and manipulation of such media outlets constitutes the single most important lever of influence. The more sensational and provocative an action is, the more chance it has of being recognized across a wider spectrum of the national media. Thus efforts are made to ensure that radical confrontations are enacted and sustained through constant media exposure and attention. The mass exhibitionism occasioned by violent confrontation with civil authority and the spectacle of mass arrests and detention disseminated by the media becomes the most immediately enabling means of the sustainability and thus the viability of a movement despite the lack of any clearly stated goals or objectives.

The rapidly escalating breakdown of the social order sweeping across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa is now spreading In the US due to the engineered financial crisis and its intended effects of spiraling unemployment, inflation and unprecedented levels of extreme poverty. As desperation, panic and mass hysteria fuel an already volatile, highly charged and explosive atmosphere, a point of serious inflection has been reached. As the existing social and economic infrastructure breaks down, the underlying fissures of an increasingly polarized American society are becoming painfully exposed. The barely restrained innate propensity of the american populace for gratuitous violence is flooding to the surface. Herein is the "crisis" that the instigator seeks to exacerbate and exploit. Lacking as was said the capacity for well defined goals or constructive objectives, the "movement" becomes the goal in itself, the means have become the end.
