|“The Obama Administration announced the appointment of five new Czars today…”
Oops, wrong post – sorry.
May 7, 2012, Newsnet5.com, CLEVELAND – Dozens of members of Occupy Cleveland showed up at a Cleveland courthouse to support the five people charged in connection with an alleged plot to blow up a northeast Ohio bridge.
The five suspects — 21-year-old Connor Stevens, 24-year-old Joshua Stafford (aka “Skully”), 26-year-old Douglas Wright (aka “Cyco), 20-year-old Brandon Baxter (aka “Skabby”) and 37-year-old Anthony Hayne (aka “Tony” & “Billy”) – pleaded not guilty during their arraignment Monday morning.
The suspects had the charges — conspiracy and attempted use of explosive material to damage physical property affecting interstate commerce — read to them in open court.
In all, about 50 members of the Occupy Cleveland group went into courthouse. After the arrests were made, Occupy Cleveland said the five suspects were associated with the group, but they were “in no way representing or acting on behalf of Occupy Cleveland.”
The city of Cleveland decided to not renew the group’s permit a day after the arrests, but did not say if the decision was related to the bomb plot.
The FBI said the five self-proclaimed anarchists came up with a plan to blow up the Route 82 bridge over the Cuyahoga National Forest in Brecksville. They were arrested after allegedly pushing a button they thought would detonate a C4 bomb placed at the base of the bridge on April 30.
An undercover informant working with the FBI had provided the group with an inert bomb.
Oh those wacky kids! What they need is for someone to give them each a great big hug!!! They are so misunderstood. Well, if these friendly (and, I might add, well-groomed) waifs are going to get charged with attempting to blow up the Route 82 bridge, at least they’re getting the moral support they need from their ‘buds’ in ‘Occupy Cleveland’…
Yes, that’s right, the nice folks I began writing about last October (remember back then when I said the Occupy Groups were mostly ‘Socialists’, ‘Anarchists’, ‘Communists’, and ‘Union Labor’? Oh, and remember when a some of you said that I was NUTS? Yes, SOME of you said that out loud AND in print – didn’t cha?)
Okay, whose wittle cheeks are chock-full of NUTs now, huh? Whose little face is ‘packin’ nuts’ of every shape and size making they little cheeks so they’s fixin’ to bust???
Oh yeah, da’s right. YOU… Who’s nutty now?
(Read to the tune of ‘Who’s Sorry Now’ by Connie Francis)
No, not me, I’m officially NOT nuts any more as I nailed it last October in: Fringe (A Little More ‘Red’ Sauce Please…)
And you, you few who doubted me? You are so BUSTED.
Yeah, it feels good to be me right about now…
Except, well, maybe, it doesn’t.
Because, if I was right about the groups working behind the scenes of the ‘Occupy’ movement, we are closer to the cliff than I thought. When you have ‘Political Party Leaders’ (a.k.a.: Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Religious Leaders and Employee Unions) spurring on the folks (Communist Party USA, Anarchists, and the US Nazi Party come to mind) who want to push America into Anarchy – well, we’ve got trouble – heap big trouble.
There hasn’t been much said nationally about the 50+ Occupy Cincinnati members who showed up in court two days ago to express solidarity with five idiots who wanted to blow up a bridge, to send dozens, or perhaps hundreds of people into a river. To what? To give them a thrill ride?
No, you blow up a bridge to make people (who just happen to be on the bridge when you blow it up…) DIE.
So, I guess I need to ask this question: Why am I thinking about this? Why is some guy in his PJ’s drafting a post about it when the Alphabet Soup Corp of Reporters didn’t find it noteworthy at all?
Either one of two things is going on:
1. The AP is withholding coverage so that the FBI, CIA, and Department of Homeland Security can work stealthily behind the scenes to uncover the ‘Rest of the Story’ and assure that the responsible parties are punished,
2. Johnny Depp was on the ‘Ellen’ Show announcing that he would rather swallow a ‘bag of hair’ rather than do this.
Yes, the Professional Media in American has its priorities. You can find the Johnny Depp clip everywhere, but not so much as a peep about ‘Occupy’ folks plotting to blow stuff (and people) up.
If it weren’t so terribly sad – it’d be funny.
But, hey, what do I know? Like I said, I’m just a guy in his PJ’s typing this as my wife watches TV in the other room.
I think I’ll join her for the remainder of the evening in order to catch up with the real news of the day. Perhaps I’ll find out why ‘America is OBSESSED with Pippa Middleton’?
Or maybe I’ll find out why America is NOT obsessed with the going’s on IN America?
The enemy is not at the door.
The enemy is in Your House.
Excerpted from the Weekly Standard, October, 2011: In an interview that will be aired tonight on ABC News, President Obama continues to express his commitment to the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
“The most important thing we can do right now is those of us in leadership letting people know that we understand their struggles and we are on their side, and that we want to set up a system in which hard work, responsibility, doing what you’re supposed to do, is rewarded,” Obama tells ABC News.
“And that people who are irresponsible, who are reckless, who don’t feel a sense of obligation to their communities and their companies and their workers that those folks aren’t rewarded.”
But choose quickly…
