Illegal Aliens Protest Outsourcing Jobs in Portland

by lewwaters

Saturday, Dec. 17, 2011, Illegal Aliens held a peaceful rally in Portland, Oregon protesting the outsourcing of American Jobs.

Perhaps these Illegal Aliens never heard of NAFTA?

Perhaps too, if they held similar rallies in their home countries, they could remain there?

KPAM 860’s Victoria Taft discussed the protest rally here and here

Re-Occupy Portland Calls Mayor Sam Adams Bluff

by lewwaters

December 2, 2011, Portland, Oregon Mayor Sam Adams stated Occupiers would not be allowed to occupy another park, after the destruction they did just weeks ago.

December 3, 2011, Re-Occupy Portland is setting up camp downtown Portland in Shemanski Park and stating their interpretation of the camping law.

What will Mayor Adams do, besides ring his hands and stomp his feet?

NOTE: Breaks in audio are a result of livestream feed, not editing.

Livestream feed for Occupy Portland here

UPDATE: Mayor Adams showed what a wuss he is. He talked big saying they won’t be allowed to take another park.

They took a park and he let Police oust them about 8:30. They walked around and went back to the very park they were just ousted from about 11:05, where they still remain.

So, what good did he do by ousting them and letting them retake the very same park and stay there overnight?

Can all of us just begin doing as we please?

OCCUPIERS OCCUPY WHILE SOLDIERS DIE: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH OF OCCUPIERS AND THEIR PROTECTORS

by lewwaters

Submitted by Rees Lloyd

Do the so-called “Occupiers” who declare they “represent the 99%” represent you?

Does SEIU, whose members are overwhelmingly “public sector employees,” formerly “publicly servants” fast becoming “public enemies” in the Andy Stern-transformed SEIU which has publicly joined the “Occupiers,” represent you?

Do you agree with the Occupiers’ principle demand that American taxpayers must to be compelled by the Federal Government to pay the Occupiers’ “college loans” — while Americans of the same college-age as the Occupiers are fighting, being wounded, and dying, defending freedom in the war against terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq?

Do you agree with SEIU’s recently retired president, neo-socialist Andy Stern, who reshaped the SEIU in his own Sol Alinsky-like political view, and has publicly threatened that: ” ‘ Workers of the World Unite’ is no longer just a slogan, but how we have to do business[,] and “We [SEIU] will use the power of persuasion, but, if that doesn’t work, we will use the persuasion of power[,]” against the very public whose taxes pay the public sector employees of SEIU?

Maxine Waters Once Again Shows Her Shallowness

If Democrats like Ms. Waters (no relation) get their way, the middle class will cease to exist. There would only be the socialist elite rulers and the poor.

Will Sam Adams Apologize for Upholding the Law?

by lewwaters

The non-leader facilitator of Occupy Portland, Adriane Ackerman read a prepared statement this morning in Portland, decrying what she called “deplorable police action” as Sam Adams finally found a little spine and cleared the illegal squatters out of Chapman and Lownsdale squares in Portland.

Ackerman, who was also seen Saturday evening directing matters leading up to the 12:01 AM “suggested deadline” for the illegal squatters to leave the parks, is demanding an apology from Adams for what she called “militarized police action that led to violence against peaceful protester.”

Video of the “news conference” is at KPTV 12

A poll on KPTV asking if Adams should apologize is running 94% NO, 6% yes.

A similar poll here on KGW’s article is running 92% NO, 8% yes.

Ackerman claims to be cutting off communication with the city until such time Adams issues a formal apology for upholding Portland’s law.

Adams has expressed support for the illegal squatters so the question is, will he continue to ignore the rights and needs of 99% of Portland residents to facilitate illegal squatters? Or will he stand firm and act like a mayor should against illegal squatters who know threaten in invade banks around the nation this coming Thursday?

UPDATE: Most outrageous to now see the city of Portland requesting donations from citizens to restore the two parks that idiot mayor Sam Adams gave illegal squatters permission to destroy. http://www.portlandparksfoundation.org/historic-squares

Language Warning!

I may disagree with some of the voices heard in Occupy Vancouver, but I thank organizers for not following suit in how other protests are being conducted.

Reality Bites For Protesters Too

by lewwaters

For days now I have been watching and speaking of how the Occupy anything but a bar of soap movement is doomed to fall apart, just as we saw back in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Pie in the sky dreams of a socialist utopia come crashing down on the bleeding heart feel gooders when they are smacked right between the eyes with the reality of the world and those in it who think they shouldn’t have to work or carry their portion of the load.

We are beginning to see it in Occupy Portland as reports of discontent and unsanitary conditions are literally leaking out and running down the street.

People in California and other states are getting fed up with cries of protesters having constitutional rights while infringing on the constitutional rights of others to live in a peaceful community and freely use the public lands protesters have decided are theirs to hold instead. In Oakland, some found out the hard way that confronting the Police who are charged with restoring law & order is not conducive to freedom, much less their health.

In Portland, who decided in “incorporate” their movement is raising eyebrows as some $10,000 in donations seems to be missing now.

Occupy A Paycheck

by lewwaters

We have all been seeing in the news about Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Portland, and Occupy Denver; Occupy everything except a bar of soap for some. The common theme we hear is that there are no jobs, corporate greed is holding back on jobs, the rich are stingy and not “paying their fair share” in taxes. The claim is that 1% holds all of the wealth and that 99% apparently do not, leading one to believe that 99% of the country is broke, out of work and dying of hunger.

According to the National Taxpayers Union, the so called rich already pays a disproportionate amount of income taxes and we also know that 47% of lower wage earners pays no income taxes.

Beyond taxes, as I said above, corporations are accused of being greedy, not wanting to hire people while they hold massive amounts of profits, yadda, yadda, yadda. That too is not quite accurate as there are corporations ready, willing and all too able to hire up to one million workers and it is the government blocking the access to those jobs.

Occupy Portland’s Hit New Song

by lewwaters

While Vancouverites and those who came to attend from other cities held a relatively peaceful march and rally in Esther Short Park Saturday, October 15, the Occupy Portland crowd had an impromptu ‘musical’ band within their midst with their new hit song, “F*CK the USA”

Don’t expect the Columbian, busted on their bias this week by publishing 8 supportive articles on Occupy Vancouver after not granting one single word to the April 17, 2010 Tea Party rally that drew nearly twice the amount of people, to mention this.

The Disconnect of Occupy Wall Street

by lewwaters

The longer these “Occupy Whatever” protests go on, the more disconnected the “occupiers” seem to be. Now that they have decided to release their “demands” and another work in progress document, The American Peoples New Economic Charter I am left wondering how these people expect to be taken seriously.

At one point in their documents, they call for an end to private sector student loans, saying such loans should be wholly subsidized. Later, they want forgiveness of the very loans they took out then state, “Get Wall Street out of the private student loan business and maintain fair and reasonable public loans for all students who need them.”

They ask for “Education should be funded with some of the $2 billion/week that goes to war-funding. At least 50% of it.”

They expect, “Socialize undergraduate level college. Make failing impossible to assure that everyone has the same chance in the work place post-college.”

They want to see, “Repeal “No Child Left Behind” [NCLB is basically a corporate $ maker. Make all education free from cradle-grave.”

Part-Time Occupiers to Descend on Vancouver, Washington

by lewwaters

I guess better late than never, an “Occupy Vancouver” event is planned to be held in Esther Short Park this Saturday, October 15, 2011. Unlike other “Occupations” around the country, supposedly showing their disdain for something, passing out free condoms, not bathing and being a general nuisance, “Occupy Vancouver” is slated to be held from noon to 3PM.

The facebook page for this part-time protest states,

“Join together with your fellow citizens to show this nation that we are aware of the injustices, and that we will peacefully assemble in solidarity with the International Day of Occupation on October 15th.”

“This is NOT a movement against authority, this is NOT a movement against police, this IS a peaceful movement of awareness!”

“Thanks for your support! Come voice your ideas, we have three proposed general assembly meetings over the coming days to talk about the event next weekend, and to listen to the public before the event. Saturday the 8th and Sunday the 9th, both at 2pm at Esther Short Park near the center band-shell. And also, Wednesday the 12th at 6pm, same location.”

Apparently they already started their occupation and since we all missed it, they plan to do it again.
