What are they up to now?

#OWS’ers via Drudge: Occupy protesters seek to shut West Coast ports

Anti-Wall Street protesters along the West Coast joined an effort Monday to blockade some of the nation’s busiest ports from Anchorage, Alaska, to San Diego, with the thought that if they cut off the ports, they cut into corporate profits.

Demonstrators were to gather to march on the Port of Oakland, which Occupy protesters successfully shut down in November. Marchers also descended on the sprawling port complex spanning Los Angeles and Long Beach as the work day begins.

Occupy groups also planned blockades in Seattle and Tacoma, Wash., the Canadian city of Vancouver, British Columbia, and in Portland, Ore.

The protests being billed as action against “Wall Street on the waterfront” are perhaps the Occupy movement’s most dramatic gesture since police raids sent most remaining camps scattering last month. Demonstrators began forming those camps around the country about two months ago to protest what they call corporate greed and economic inequality.

Protesters have cited a longstanding dispute between longshoremen at the Port of Longview in Washington and grain exporter EGT as a key reason for the blockades. Shutdown supporters say they’re not asking longshoremen to organize a work stoppage in violation of their contract but simply asking them to exercise their free speech rights and stay off the job, in keeping with the union’s historic tradition of activism.

Uhm…

    They need, and the public must DEMAND that they receive, REAL prison time via felony charges for this. Not just a week in jail.

    High bonds, federal charges, the works.

    Or else they’ll just keep doing it.

    They should occupy a jail cell.

    Incidentally, “occupy” is something of a military term which implies force and/or coercion. They’re revolutionaries on the cheap and they’re coalescing all of the very worst elements of our society, taking public spaces by force and fomenting violence, despite their talk of peace.

    It’s naked Leninism and if allowed to continue, there’ll be mass violence in the streets.

    While dogs and gas are wonderful tools for dispersal, they also play right into their propaganda.

    Until the judges and prosecutors that take these cases start imprisoning these folks for a significant amount of time, none of the “crackdown” matters.

    If they’re simply trotted to the station, booked, and released, or even sit in jail for the time it takes for their case to be expedited (and fast tracked because there are so many of them), they will simply return to the mob as heroes with jail bracelets.

    OT- PSA

    If you have Republican Senators, you need to call them today and tell them to vote for Ron Johnson in the race for the Vice Chairmanship for the Senate Republican Conference.

    The vote will be held tomorrow, December 13th, so we need to call today. Call the Capitol Hill Switchboard and ask for your Senator’s office. The number is 202-224-3121.

    Call your Senator’s local office as well. Often those are easier to get through to and trust me, if they suddenly get a wave of calls at the local office, the Washington office is informed immediately.

    Remember these calls go only to Republican Senators. If you happen to be in California, well you are out of luck on a number of fronts.

    You can also call Mitch McConnell’s office. His number is 202-224-2541. Tell his office that we the people who put the GOP back on the map want conservative leadership and we want him to back Ron Johnson.

    George Freaking Washington is not running for President, and he never will again. To attempt to hold people to standards that have been distorted by years of legendary status is folly. He was a great, great man but wasn’t perfect. The only records we have of him are written records in a time when only a certain few actually wrote.

    Newt threw down the Bain card.

    After fielding questions from employees at Insight Technology in Londonderry, Gingrich bristled at Romney’s suggestion during a morning appearance on Fox News that he should return $1.6 million in payments that he received for advising mortgage giant Freddie Mac.

    “I love the way he and his consultants do these things,” the former House speaker told reporters with a smile. “I would just say that if Gov. Romney would like to give back all the money he’s earned from bankrupting companies and laying off employees over his years at Bain that I would be glad to then listen to him. I’ll bet you $10, not $10,000” – he said, referring to Romney’s $10,000 bet in Saturday night’s debate – “that he won’t take the offer.”

    I meant that the decision was going to come down to 5-4 if she hadn’t recused herself so she lost nothing by stepping away.

    But I think Kennedy will come down with the conservative side -- that whole calling out of the Supreme Court by Jerk the Wonder Prez at the SOTU Show a couple years ago really really REALLY pissed Kennedy off. When asked about retirement, he stated that he would not retire while Obama was President. I think Kennedy will side with the conservative majority -- which is why they are so desperate to force Thomas to recuse himself -- it isn’t that they’re just worried about losing Kagan -- what they really need is to bump Thomas from the panel to force a tie.

    Without the mandate, the whole thing collapses. I’d feel more comfortable if Congress simply drove a stake thru its heart.

    Hopefully McConnell takes the hint.

    His money could be on the wrong horse.

    Johnson announced his intention to run for vice chairman just hours after Alexander’s announcement. Blunt, meanwhile, quietly began seeking support for a run of his own, but made his candidacy public only last week, after Alexander set a date for the election.

    Erickson cried foul, writing: “[The election] was going to happen in January. But conservatives started gaining momentum. Naturally, Mitch McConnell had to go try to pull the rug out from under conservatives.” Sen. Jim DeMint (R., S.C.), a tea-party favorite who is backing Johnson, said he was “kind of surprised” to learn that the election was being moved up.

    One Senate source contends that the decision to move the date up was made at McConnell’s bidding in a deliberate effort to help Blunt, while others insist that the vote was never officially scheduled for January and that it was Alexander who made the call. The purpose of holding the election now, they say, is to give the new leadership team sufficient time to be able to hit the ground running when Congress returns after the holiday recess.

    Good! Someone has been nneeding to do that! That makes me feel somewhat better about supporting Gingrich. If he was really running just to split the conservative vote so Romney could sneak by, I don’t think he’d have thrown that card on the table.

    coincidence, i think not. glenn specializes in making these connections but ignores this one

    Romney’s basically Gordon Gekko sans personality.

    worse, he is goerge soros, an economic vampire who feeds on other people’s work; he is a destroyer of wealth just like soros.

    The Newt -- Mitt feud Is getting personal and I’ve noticed that Mitt doesn’t handle conflict that well. He stammers a lot and appears visibly shaken, while Newt hardens and calmly launches salvos of facts and figures. I’d take Newt in a battle of wits any day of the week.

    I’m not much of a Trekkie, but I really liked this line a couple months back.

    Later, it was Rick Perry’s turn to cut Romney off and break the rules to bicker with him.

    This severely vexed Romney, which is understandable – he has a right to expect the other candidates to obey the debate rules – but also cut into the austere “CEO Of Frontrunner, Inc.” image he’s been working to project. “You have a problem with allowing people to speak,” he informed Perry during one interruption. That sounds like something Mr. Spock would say right before pon farr kicked in, and somebody got slammed against a bulkhead.

    @ huckfunn:

    I agree. Ideally the legislature should fix bad law.

    I was at a Xmas party Saturday night and while I never bring up politics, the libturds all wanted to yak away. I whacked one so bad with facts he pouted and ran outside for awhile.

    It is scary to me how depressing ignorant the libturds are. They will make a statement and when you ask them what they “mean” by that, they go “oh, I don’t want to discuss THAT.”

    Example: “Sarah Palin is a certified nut job.”

    “Really? What has she done or said that makes her a nut job?”

    “Well, I have family in Wasilla (first I’ve heard of it, by the way) and they think she’s crazy.”

    “Yeah, but the people of Alaska thought she was great.”

    “No they didn’t. I wouldn’t vote for John McCain because he appointed her and that’s why he lost the election, because of her.”

    “Really? Because my understanding is that without Palin on the ticket, he would have lost by a larger margin.”

    “No, that’s not true, because I didn’t vote for him because Palin was on the ticket.”

    “Okay, based on what? What did Palin say or do during the campaign that made you want to vote for a Marxist?”

    “I don’t want to discuss THAT right now.”

Beck starts GBTV but really, how many people are signed up for it? Bachmann calls for an anti-Obamacare rally in D.C. on a Thursday, and thousands show up (mostly to see Mark Levin; Bachman had little to do with it) and Sarah, oh dear, well, let’s just say where you used to be what Fred Thompson called a “breath of fresh air” -- now you everywhere and I want to close the window.

    Well, with Obama, that may be his first inclination. I assume your analogy pertains to a real president and the answer is “not just no, but he’ll no!”

    My complaint on Sarah is not that I don’t like her -- because I do, and in fact she seems to have stepped back a bit — but I didn’t need to have her take on every single event that took place in this country. It was more like we were getting Sarah overdose.

    Billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov plans to challenge Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for the Russian presidency in March elections after the biggest anti-government demonstrations in a decade emboldened Russia’s opposition.
    “This is the most important decision of my life,” the owner of the New Jersey Nets basketball team told reporters in Moscow today.
    Prokhorov, 46, Russia’s third-richest man with a fortune Forbes magazine estimated at $18 billion, said that he’ll seek to build support from the grassroots level and that he opposes “revolution” and “populism.” He quit as leader of the Right Cause party on Sept. 15, accusing President Dmitry Medvedev’s administration of blocking the group’s preparations for parliamentary elections in December.
    That Dec. 4 vote, in which Putin and Medvedev’s United Russia party retained its majority, was neither free nor fair, observers from the U.S. and Europe said. Thousands of Russians took to the streets in the week since the contest to protest the results after reports of ballot-stuffing.

    @ 89 Carolina Girl: i hardly hear from Palin these days. And I am a facebook friend. The MSM pushed a lot of issues at her personally as part of her possible front runner campaign status. And they did it as a form of character assassination. In the manner of “Sarah Palin when did you stop beating your wife?”

    At one time she was one of the few people pounding Obama down. So I am very ok with her responding to personal attacks by anyone whenever they occur. And she can energize a crowd and deliver a message.

    The bigger picture is that these MSM hits on the GoP are opportunities to knock them down and call the MSM out as stupid. Trump, Cain, and Gingrich are the best at it. That’s a good reason to enable them in this election cycle so they can polarize Obama and Alinksky him
