Occupy Oakland goons rioting in 2011.

The City of Oakland agreed to pay violent #Occupy thug Scott Olsen, the founder of “I Hate the Marines.com” website, for injuries he suffered at an #Occupy riot in Oakland in 2011.
The Guardian reported:

The City of Oakland has agreed to pay $4.5m to Scott Olsen, a marine corps veteran who was critically injured by city police during Occupy demonstrations, his attorneys announced on Friday.

Olsen, 26, sued the Oakland police department after being hit in the head by a police projectile during a chaotic October 2011 protest. He was admitted to a hospital in critical condition and suffered a fractured skull, broken neck vertebrae and brain swelling.

The city settled the suit rather than take the case to trial.

But as reported in 2011—

The cops were innocent.

Extortion by any other name is still...EXTORTION!

Too bad he didn't die - Oswald isn't the only ex marine

I have been arguing with some of the Occupy/Anonymous crowd via the internet for the last few months, and in doing so I have learned a little more about how they operate.

I told them that they will NOT be welcomed if they show up for Operation American Spring, being held in DC. The reason is simple... OAS is going to be a peaceful, yet forceful action event with a non-violence policy throughout. This automatically leaves them out of any chance of getting an invitation. OAS is about restoring Constitutional rule of Law, NOT to create anarchy and chaos (complete disorder and confusion). Anarchy is the end-game of Occupy, Anonymous, and all the Anarchos on the planet. Here's just a few... Anarcho-Communism, Anarcho-Syndicalism, Individualist-Anarchism,  Socialist-Anarchism (which is considered the same as a Libertarian-Socialist). Plus, there is Anarcho-Capitalism, Libertarian-Anarchism, and even Anarcho-Primitivism. For clarity, a person should go to Wiki-Pedia to learn more about Anarchy, I must warn you first... The Author states that 'most' Anarchist's are non-violent. This is baloney! They also claim that only a 'few' of the Anarchos are violent, which is more baloney. The general idea for these groups (Anon,Occupy,Anarchists) is they want to take over the banking system, then take the money that the banks have and just give it to all of us. Sounds just Peachy until you start thinking about how you will keep your share of the money from being stolen from you. Plus they want to fire all Politicians, do away with all political leadership positions, and put our Military out of business. Then by spreading some magic fairy-dust all over us, we will all then be free to live the life that we choose with no boundaries. Sounds pretty cool until you stop to actually think about the practicality of it all. Then reality crashes the party and you end up spending your very shortened life trying to keep free-ranging bad guys from stealing your money, food, medicine, water, firearms, Wife, Girlfriend, Daughter, etc, and then put a bullet (probably one of yours) in your head and move on to the next peaceful Anarchy supporters house and do it all again.

Anyway, after many conversations I suggested a compromise. I suggested they come without wearing those stupid masks, bring no weapons, and NOT start any trouble, then we would welcome them. However, most of them thought that asking them to NOT wear the mask was asking too much. They didn't like it when I said that the mask issue was a no-brainer because the ONLY reason anyone needs to need a mask is to hide their identity. Operation American Spring is not a secret. We actually want Politicians to know we are coming, and why we are coming. And we are going as honest hard-working tax-paying Patriot Americans and have no need to hide our faces. We are WE THE PEOPLE, and we want the Nation to see the coming together of all Freedom Loving Americans of all Colors, Financial brackets, Political affiliations, and Religions, to start the process of restoring our Constitution and do some over-due political house cleaning, from both political parties, and starting from the top and work our way down. OAS is a movement of pride. Yes, we are unabashedly proud to be American, but lately our Country has been corrupted and it's up to We The People to fix things. We can no longer depend on our politicians.

Please join us in DC on May 16th. Then for those of you that can manage to stay longer, say a month or longer, we would love to have your support. The 16th is just the beginning of Operation American Spring.

If you cannot attend, please pray for those that of us that will be there. 

For God and Country!

To bad he did not die.

That statement is way over the top. The police violence is way over the top. The payout is way over the top. 

But, obviously the city thought that a jury of fellow citizens might award a greater payout---that is an admission that establishment government force has been turning We the People away from their oppressive rulers. A jury would likely side with a fellow citizen instead of the city police...

I thought the tea party wanted to get rid of establishment oppression and slavery to taxes, yet you wish for a protester to die? Perhaps you ought to go out and protest in the line of fire instead of poking at a computer keyboard... everywhere, everywhere I look there are people who simple do not make any sense from one minute to the next!

They are just punks who don't believe in the system.

You do believe in the "system." What about returning government to the restraints of the Constitution? 

What CRAP!!!

Stop saying Oakland paid. It's the residence of Oakland whose taxpayer dollars is paying for this. 4.5 million dollars being paid to a thug, who by the way is out there on the streets inciting riots, rather than being used for your child's education. Oakland, you deserve what you voted for.

   If he was involved with the occupy movement he was NEVER a marine ,  he was probably kicked out on a dishonorable discharge , marines are not traitors to their country , as are ALL demonrat b--t--ds .

A visit to Oakland will reveal about 12 different languages being spoken. Drugs and prostitutes are everywhere. The biggest employer is the welfare and unemployment office.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
