Watch The Latest Attempt To Occupy Wall Street (On A Weekend?) Live

Tyler Durden's picture

If there is one thing America has had a lot of, it is (failed) attempts to make a political statement by "occupying" Wall Street, although how anyone makes a "statement" on a weekend, when all the trading on Wall Street is done out of Chicago and Mahwah (and not on Saturday), and all the actual capital decisions are made out of midtown (and Shanghai) is a little confusing. Today, Operation EmpireStateRebellion, for whom this is neither the first, nor the last attempt to organize an improvized rebellion, has proceeded with its latest such statement, which will come and go and achieve nothing, as unfortunately the welfare and entitlement society of the US is ingrained far too deeply fo anyone to actually willingly give up on their paper 201(k)s and Social Security benefits, no matter how much of an underfunded ponzi they may be. The only time something, anything, can happen in the US is when that monthly retirement fund, annuity report or Schwab statement shows $0.00 in the bottom line for everyone (middle class that is, the others will have long since converted their paper wealth into physical). Not a second before. That said we do wish them all the best. Those willing to watch this weekend's gathering of idealists can do so at the webcast (with commercial interruptions) below.

Controlled opposition. Besides that Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue.

Anyone who watches TV is a serf and supports being a f***ing serf.  They deserve serfdom. ALl the networks are the same.   Fox run by Al Waleed and Mordechi is the illusion of an alternative.

Hopefully these union goons will have the guts to go to Goldman Sachs and defeciate all over the trading desks.  They won't because this is a charade.  They are on the same team.   Union scum and Wall Street vermin f**king over Main Street.

Not unlike banners all over the webpage advertising credit cards, ETF's and pimping women from economically disadvantaged parts of the world.  Yes, we're so superior here.

MacGruber's picture

Haha, this website uses websense (it reads what websites you visit and customizes the ads). Where have you been visiting? :)

NuckingFuts's picture

Mac is correct. If shows up in a banner ad it is something the 'system' thinks you are interested in due to how you search the web. My banner ads do not pimp women, they sell gold. Ha ha. Speak for yourself when discussing who is superior please.

Hope Mrs. Caboose doesn't see this.

Loose Caboose's picture

Ha.  I am a woman.  Hetero.  And I'm the the only one who uses this computer and I don't visit any sites looking for women - so I fail to see the logic.

But the point I was trying to make is that the internet is just as contamiated by commercial enterprise. I don't watch the tube anymore but I don't think for one second that the web is any purer in terms of commerical propoganda in your face, all the time. 

That was my point. 


NuckingFuts's picture

Well done. Your point well made. In this case your gender does warrant an apology for the "it's there because you surf porn" assumption.

Creepy Lurker's picture

I see why you made the assumption though. Most people don't know that if you never click on ads the software starts guessing.

Popo's picture

Actually, no.  She definitely clicked on some of the ads at some point, and now the adserver is targeting her as a likely click for further related ads.

Are you kidding's picture

Hey Loose Caboose (translation: fatass?),

You're a woman...your gender rarely understands don't fret.

I kindly request a list of websearches I should make to get banners with women from disadvantaged parts of the world on my ZH.

I just saw a Ron Paul supporter give a good interview.

The last hope for America is represented down there on Wall Street.

THe last hope is not some old man. We will never change something within the current government structures by voting who-ever.

THe last hope is us. We need to do something. We need to inform people and quit being part of the system as far as possible.

i'm always a little suspicious of a protest that tells you to call an 800 number and promises to keep your phone number a secret, uses gmail, and has mayor bloomberg saying they have a right to speak.


High Plains Drifter's picture

your suspicions are well warranted. everything is not as it seems, as usual...........

It's because you forgot to take your medication at 4PM.

unky's picture

The protest is Okay, as some people who were not interest in the topic catch up. I just want to say that we should not wait for a Messiahs-like person to save us (who we vote into office).

whstlblwr's picture

It's right we can do it ourselves, just stock up bunker and ignore world. LOL.

TwelfthVulture's picture

From the video, I'd say 80% of those protesters ALSO voted for the Messiah (TOTUS) in Chief.

Too bad McCain and Palin didn't win. What a ticket!

AldousHuxley's picture

If you are one of those fools who still think your vote counts and blame the other fool's candidate, then you are doing it wrong.


Don't vote, donate money. That's the elite way.


TwelfthVulture's picture

Maybe next time you vote for "change," you should get the candidate nailed down on a definition of just what that "change" entails.  Seems to me, you and they got change these past three years.  How the fuck you like it?

Honestly, you're a damn ignoramus.  McCain/Palin?  Not exactly a winning idea, but you know something dickhead?  At least the two of them were semi-qualified.  Yeah.  Held jobs in the real world before they sold their soul and became politicians.  I remember the media/talking heads going apeshit over Palin's lack of executive experience.  What?  She was both a mayor and a governor.  You may not like her, I don't, but here's the facts, she was the ONLY candidate in the race who had ANY executive experience.  Your candidate?  Motherfucker never even ran a fucking lemonaid stand.  And you voted for him?  You're a damn ignoramus.

Yep the white lighters are all over these guys. The same people that brought you No mothership showing up oct 15 2009. Those guys are going to be the favorite fun toy at the next uncontrollable punitive masses party.

Forgive me for wondering if you've ever bothered trying.

Where's the pitchforks and torches?

Seriously....I was thinking at least get some fake ones and have a nighttime protest outside the NY Fed w/speakers such as Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, Gerald Celente, Max Kaiser, Karl Denninger, Nomi Prins, William Black, Simon Johnson, etc.

Not THAT'D be a protest!!!

BTW, I have a contact who was the key organizer of the "New Way Forward" protests spearheaded by Bill Moyers.

 If anyone has any bright ideas, let me know. 

augie's picture

here's a bright idea, everyone stop reading headlines and actually go to a protest and see it for yourself.

1. occupywallstreet begins on saturday and will continue until the city gets tired of paying cops overtime and illegally removes protestors. Although it is legal to sleep on the streets in NYC for the purpose of political protest, police were saying that they did not care.

2. Controlled opposition was all to evident and class conflict is the name of the game rather than opposition towards the banking system. Most protestors lack the sophistication to understand what exactly about the banking system they are supposidly againsts so are easily manipulated into regugitating "i'm against capitalisim." Take their comments in the light they were inspired by rather than our understanding of what they are actually saying. Or don't and continue to foster division within your own lives. 

3. When media asserts a protest is failed, that implies the media is the judge as to what constitutes a successful protest. Personally, when i see 500 kids, misguided or otherwise getting off their asses to do something rather than watch T.V. or whatever it is kids do these days I say it's a success. Who is to say my opinion is any less valid than what zerohedge and other outlets say? Everything is relative, and everything has to begin somewhere.

4. That being said, although i did see a handful of Ron Paul supporters garnished with patches of discussion of the federal reserve, the crowd was largely composed of leftist conditioned children who haven't yet understood their own ideological inadequacies and how their identification with those beliefs leads to division.

5. Please don't be so quickly to judge one another based on second hand information. If zerohege has taught me anything, it is that there are two sides to every story, and while this site would imply a failure based on some very logical and reasonable criticisms, i would submit there were some very positive outcomes which are not to be overlooked. Between both these views there lies the truth. Please make up your own mind.

6. There was a gentlmen distributing a newspaper titled Third Party Independent that had  portions of Washington's farewell address overtly relevant to our situation today. The comentary in the Newspaper is nothing you haven't read before, but if you haven't read washington's farewell address, i suggest you do before you pass judgement on the intention of what these children are standing up for.  

Here's a link to the address

anti-semetic card = defending the indefensible

Bringin It's picture

anti-Semetic ... Weren't you told to stop using that term?  I'm sure you were because you don't see it around much any more. 

Maybe you didn't get the memo.  Someone might ask who's Semetic.  Are you Semetic?  I'll tell you who's Semetic,  The Palestinians are genuinely Semetic.  So what does that make you??? 


Re. That excellent list of previous False Flag events someone put up left off the so called Levan Affair when the fact is Jews in Cairo planted bombs in American, and other targets to pin the attacks and subsequent outrage on Islamists.

As one of the young Egyptian Jews, Philippe Nathanson, stood in front of an Alexandria theater, the incendiary device he was carrying ignited prematurely. After bystanders beat out the fire in his clothing, a policeman took him into custody for questioning about the fire that witnesses said had begun in his pocket.


As the trial opened, the Israeli press reported emotionally the details of what it assumed to be a show trial on baseless charges intended to terrorize remnants of Egypt’s once large Jewish community. Assuming the same thing, British and French political leaders begged Nasser in vain to halt the proceedings.

I'll do my part to inform. Here is a great interview with William Black, Phd describing why no one went to jail for the massive mortgage fraud.

Bringin It's picture

I started to read this but then I had to stop when I saw it all summed up in the beginning.

- No one went to jail because the system is hopelessly corrupt.

Yes, we Americans are easily led. We fought for Europe’s survival in two world wars, and a cold war where we paid to defend the entire continent while Western Europeans grew their welfare state to uncontrolled amounts. If only England and the Rest of Europe could have actually fought their way out a paper bag, maybe the world wouldn’t be in this mess. America is the only reason most Europeans are even alive today, and now we follow in the footsteps of stupidity, the stupidity that is Europe. 

theMAXILOPEZpsycho's picture

No you didn't. You took huge gold reserves from europe following the war and huge war debts from most countries. America was the huge benificiary from the war. Countries like the uk (fighting hitler from the start instead of waiting till their own country was attacked) were the loosers.

Max Hunter's picture

UK's fight with Hitler was a war of choice.  It has been extensively documented that Hitler did NOT want war with Britain.  Run along little sheep...

Kayman's picture

Hitler did NOT want war with Britain.

While you are at it , why not claim Hitler did not want war at all. Read Mein Kampf.

Dugald's picture

How easily you forget, that war pulled America out of a depression, made thousands wealthy, caused advances in technology, and made the rest of the world admire and respect you....

What a shame  you have since worked so hard to reverse the situation!

Agreed, though I wouldn't call people in the U.S. animals (sounds too savage), I'd call them tame and timid house pets. Funny about this gathering - you read their organizing website, it starts with a bold quote of the First Amendment, but then waters it down with all the rules and regulations that the city provides; no hanging out in parks, no blocking other pedestrians, blah, blah, blah. Compliance of the law is expected and encouraged by the organizers. Who knows this could even be organized by the U.S. intelligencia to demonstrate to the would be demostrator the futility of their non-compliance with the Status Quo™.

Until U.S. citizens start going Greek, any timid message like this will fall quietly.

What's with the demonstrating-at-night program?  Are they hiding?  These people are being goofed on by the CO.
