OccupyNewJersey Keeps Its Cool
Occupy Exchange Place
Residents wary when Wall Street protest comes to JC

Detractors have called the protesters’ demands “unfocused.”

But in recent weeks, the ongoing, 24-hour protests in New York have only grown and spawned satellite demonstrations in Washington, D.C., Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia – and right here in Jersey City. The demonstrations have now gained the support of several unions and celebrities.

About 50 to 100 protesters showed up Thursday night at the Jersey City protest. No arrests were made.

The growth of the protests, some have argued, is an indication that the demonstrators’ demands – however “unfocused” they may be – have tapped into an underlying anger many Americans feel.

The Occupy Wall Street protest outside Goldman Sachs was, according to Jersey City police, a low-key affair, unlike the Zuccotti Park demos.

Alex Jones fires up 'Occupy the Fed' movement

People tend to blame the bad economy on the president, Congress or Wall Street. Although all of these are culpable, the ultimate blame rests with the Federal Reserve, says Jones. The Federal Reserve is not part of the government. Rather, it’s a private banking group with ties to mega-corporations and international banking interests. It also can manipulate the economy through issuing currency and setting interest rates.

“The Federal Reserve is the real problem, although a lot of people do not really understand it,” said Jarrod Atkinson, who works in Dallas and attended the rally.

As more people continue to wake up, Jones is hopeful.

“Ten years ago, there wouldn’t be anyone out here protesting them,” Jones said. “But now in national polls between 75 and 85 percent of Americans want to audit or abolish this criminal organization. That’s why they’ve had all of these different Federal Reserve spokespeople come out and say, ‘Oh, we support Occupy Wall Street.’ They want to keep it nebulous. 'Oh, the free market. Let us raise your taxes, that’ll get the rich guys.' Right. They wrote the laws; they’re exempt.”

The Occupy Wall Street movement was the inspiration for Jones’ Occupy the Fed movement. He became suspicious when President Obama and even Federal Reserve spokespeople began throwing their support behind the protests. Jones says he decided to start the Occupy the Fed movement to help keep the focus on the Fed.

Jones is planning to appear at demonstrations in Houston and San Antonio over the weekend. Listeners of the Alex Jones Show were also urged to hold similar protests at Federal Reserve branches throughout the country.

Don't Occupy Wall Street; End The Fed

1) ‘Occupy The Fed Now’ is a non-partisan movement dedicated to transparency and accountability in Central Banking, corporate activity, as well as government. Our foremost purpose is to fully support the utilization of the First Amendment to the Constitution and the right of any American, regardless of their economic, political, religious, or social beliefs to redress grievances publically, and peacefully, while also defending the Constitution by directing attention to the primary sources of the ongoing destruction of our country. We are NOT a counter-movement in opposition to Occupy Wall Street. While we do not agree with many of the specific conclusions or solutions presented by some Occupy Wall Street activists, we do not seek to antagonize or interfere with them. We only seek to share the vast knowledge we have collected over many years of analysis on the true nature of the financial troubles surrounding us, as well as the true culprits behind their appearance. Ultimately, we hope to make all protestors against economic corruption aware of the root source of the current fiscal crisis; the privately controlled Federal Reserve Bank, as well as the central banking authorities of many other nations around the world.

2) We reject notions promoted by the mainstream media that the Wall Street protests (and spin-offs) are driven entirely by a “socialist uprising” or “Liberal Tea Party.” Such arbitrary talking points we believe are an attempt to co-opt and divide people into false factions of “Left” and “Right.” A 99% majority of American citizens no longer have a legitimate voice let alone any tangible influence over the decisions made by government today, and that 99% includes ALL political orientations, whether conservative or liberal, independent, libertarian, etc. Over 80% of the American public, for instance, stood in vehement opposition to bailout programs initiated by the Federal Reserve which rewarded the thievery of criminal banking cartels while punishing taxpayers. Our enemy is the same no matter what “side of the aisle” we might stand. This movement must transcend preconceived notions and political ideologies and focus upon what is most important; freedom, and the truth, no matter where it may lead us.

3) Occupy The Fed Now stands in opposition to any system which relies on centralization of power into the hands of an elite few in order administer the functions of government and society to the detriment of the common citizen. This is exactly the kind of system we have today, with the Federal Reserve as the core facilitator, and it is a complete affront to the principles and laws of liberty which founded this country. Wall Street and the corporations that dwell within are merely the peripheral vestiges of a much greater problem, and any movement which targets only Wall Street, we believe, is overlooking the source of our country’s ailments. Instead of endlessly battling the external symptoms, we must counter and extinguish the disease itself.

4) We feel that because America has not lived under a true capitalist free market system (in the Adam Smith sense) for at least a century, accusations that the methodology of Capitalism is to blame for our all our current ills are unfounded. In fact, it has been the steady destruction of Capitalism and free markets since 1913 (when the Federal Reserve was founded) by the monopolies and duopolies inherent in Corporatism that has wreaked havoc upon our nation and our economy. Corporatism is inherently destructive of free markets, and is designed to remove options and competition from a system, rather than encouraging the creation of new choices and better ways of doing things. Occupy The Fed Now wishes to encourage the return of free markets and individual entrepreneurship while diminishing or completely removing the powers of the corporate system, including the protections of limited liability as well as legal categorization as “persons” that corporations have used for so long to dodge responsibility for their unlawful actions

5) Occupy The Fed Now is calling for the complete dissolution of the private Federal Reserve and the end of its domination of the creation of currency within the U.S. We oppose all monetary systems based on the spread of “fiat” (paper or digital money printed or generated out of thin air and backed by no tangible assets). Private banks and unaccountable bankers and global financiers should NEVER be given the authority to shift and manipulate our sovereign economic system at will, yet this is exactly how the Federal Reserve is run, and that is exactly what it does. All Fed accounts including its foreign transactions and holdings should be subjected to a FULL audit, and all debts that are owed to the Fed by the American government and by default the American taxpayer should be repudiated. The power to coin money must be taken away from the central bank and returned to the U.S. Treasury, as is authorized by the U.S. Constitution.

6) We believe solutions to economic crisis include the return of sound money, or money backed by tangible assets, instead of debt. Legislation which allows states and communities to have their own competing sound currencies would nurture an environment of financial choice, as well as spur a new era of business creativity. Government intrusions into the personal lives of citizens, as well as the institution of vast bureaucratic obstacles, to the advantage of corporations and to the detriment of the individual, must be eliminated. States must take back 10th Amendment reserved powers that have been worn away over the decades and reassert control over their own economies and internal politics. Globalization and centralization must be replaced with Localization backed by decentralized markets controlled by the people. Average Americans must take back their local economies and supplant corporate control by building alternative systems of trade, including barter markets, sound money networks, and local business organizations and co-ops. In order to defeat a corrupt system, we must first stop participating in that system, and then, build one of our own that services the needs of the people instead of the establishment, while working to dismantle and repeal the false, corrupt, unconstitutional fiat system.

7) Occupy The Fed Now is not a militant organization, nor a vehicle for “domestic terrorism” though government rhetoric has turned towards branding peaceful activist organizations like ours as such recently. We are not affiliated with the Republican or Democratic parties, nor will we be co-opted by either. We are “extremists” only in that we absolutely refuse to compromise on the truth. Our desire is to ensure a better future, if not for ourselves, then at least for our children. We will not rest or yield until this is accomplished. The window of opportunity to prevent outright economic and social catastrophe, we believe, is swiftly closing. We must act immediately if we hope to secure a positive outcome for our country, our Constitution, and our culture. There is no later, there is only now…

Federal Reserve And General Electric Both Support OccupyWallStreet
Occupy Wall Street finds sympathy in the Fed
By Michelle Nichols
Reuters Oct 6, 2011

Protests against the U.S. financial system and economic inequality spread across America on Thursday and found unlikely sympathy from a top official of one of the main targets of scorn — the Federal Reserve.

The Occupy Wall Street movement that began in New York last month with a few people expanded to protests in more than a dozen cities.

They included Tampa, Florida; Trenton and Jersey City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Norfolk, Virginia, in the East; Chicago and St. Louis in the Midwest; Houston, San Antonio and Austin in Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; and Portland, Oregon, Seattle and Los Angeles in the West.

Dallas Federal Reserve President Richard Fisher surprised a business group in Fort Worth, Texas, on Thursday when he said, “I am somewhat sympathetic — that will shock you.”

The Fed played a key role in one of the protest targets, the 2008 Wall Street bailout that critics say let banks enjoy huge profits while average Americans suffered high unemployment and job insecurity.

“We have too many people out of work,” Fisher said. “We have a very uneven distribution of income. We have too many people out of work for too long. We have a very frustrated people, and I can understand their frustration.”

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden also acknowledged the frustration and anger of the protesters on Thursday.

“People are frustrated and, you know, the protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works,” Obama said at a news conference in Washington.

Biden, speaking at the Washington Ideas Forum, likened the protest movement to the Tea Party, which sprang to life in 2009 after Obama’s election and has become a powerful conservative grass-roots force helping elect dozens of Republicans to office.

“The American people do not think the system is fair,” Biden said.


With support from unions boosting the protesters’ ranks, organizers predicted the momentum would build across the country.

“This is the beginning,” said John Preston in Philadelphia, business manager for Teamsters Local 929. “Teamsters will support the movement city to city.”

In Philadelphia, up to 1,000 protesters chanted and waved placards reading: “I did not think ’By the People, For the People’ meant 1 percent,” a reference to their argument the country’s top few have too much wealth and political power.

In Los Angeles, more than 100 protesters crowded outside a Bank of America branch downtown, while a smaller group dressed in business attire slipped inside and pitched a tent. Eleven were arrested when they refused to remove the tent.

In Washington, protesters carried signs that read: “Human Needs, Not Corporate Greed” and “Stop the War on Workers.”

“I believe the American dream is truly in jeopardy,” said protester Darrell Bouldin, 25, of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. “There are so many people like me in Tennessee who are fed up with the Wall Street gangsters.”

On Wednesday, about 5,000 people marched on New York’s financial district, the biggest rally so far, swelled by nurses, transit workers and other union members. Dozens of people were arrested and police used pepper spray on some protesters.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said he understood the anger being felt by the protesters but had to balance that with the economic importance of Wall Street to the state. Wall Street is the pillar of the New York state economy, making up 13 percent of tax contributions.

The head of General Electric Co finance arm, Michael Neal, said he was sympathetic to the cause.

“People are really angry, and I get it. If I were unemployed now, I’d be really angry too,” Neal told Reuters in Columbus, Ohio, after a GE event.

Bloomberg Predicted OccupyWallStreet Day Before It Started
Bloomberg, on Radio, Raises Specter of Riots by Jobless
Published: September 16, 2011

“You have a lot of kids graduating college can’t find jobs,” he said in response to a question about the poverty rate. “That’s what happened in Cairo. That’s what happened in Madrid,” he continued, referring to the uprising that overthrew President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and the more recent protests against the Spanish government’s austerity measures. “You don’t want those kinds of riots here.”

Perhaps the mention of riots was his subtle way of trying to prod Washington to pass a jobs bill. He has been known to invoke the possibility of riots before, when looking to spur a divided Legislature into action.

The last time was in 2009, when it looked possible that the New York State Legislature would not renew mayoral control of the schools. “If they didn’t do that, I think that there’d be riots in the streets, given the improvement” in schools, Mr. Bloomberg said at the time, prompting many riot-themed headlines. The Legislature ultimately did renew mayoral control.
Mayor Bloomberg predicts riots in the streets if economy doesn't create more jobs
By Erin Einhorn and Corky Siemaszko
Friday, September 16th 2011

Mayor Bloomberg warned Friday there would be riots in the streets if Washington doesn't get serious about generating jobs.

Bloomberg's unusually alarmist pronouncement came as President Obama has been pressuring reluctant Republicans to pass his proposed job creation plan.
Bloomberg gave Obama kudos for coming up with a jobs plan.

"At least he's got some ideas on the table, whether you like those or not," he said. "Now everybody's got to sit down and say we're actually gonna do something and you have to do something on both the revenue and the expense side."

And everybody's got to share in the pain.

Pedestrians were seemingly content on the streets of upper Manhattan Friday, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg believes there’s an undercurrent of economic distress that could upset the tranquil street scene.


Occupy Wall Street FAKE FAKE FAKE

Public Relations Firm Workhouse Behind Occupy Wall Street
Occupy Wall Street protesters picked up by public relations firm Workhouse pro-bono
Monday, October 3rd 2011

The revolution will be publicized.

The Occupy Wall Street movement got a pro-bono boost last week from a not-so-underground source: a Manhattan public relations firm.

The largely anonymous protesters who've clogged Zucotti Park near the World Trade Center for the last two weeks—and who, on Saturday swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge—received what sources tell us was an unsolicited email blast from empathetic members of Workhouse Publicity.

The Chelsea-based PR firm—which, according to its website has worked with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Interview magazine, filmmaker Tim Burton, Bergdorf Goodmanand Saks Fifth Avenue—sent out the mesage, titled "Occupy Wall Street: News from the Front" to a number of media outlets, socialites and celebrities on Wednesday.

The message linked to a Facebook photo gallery that depicted black-and-white images of demonstrators and their protest signs.

The pictures were posted by Workhouse CEO Adam Nelson, and though the company initially declined to comment on the email, it later issued a statement: "We have no agenda and our service in this regard is simple: Publicize the message as the march continues."

The email blast sent by Workhouse also included the tag line, The Revolution Will Not Be Editorialized." which Nelson says is a reference to the protesters' frustration with the lack of press coverage during the early days of their lower Manhattan siege.

Nelson says he and several other employees, went down to document the protest last week and to "help out some friends."

He stressed, however, that the Occupy Wall Street organizers "didn't hire a publicity firm to spread their message."

Although Workhouse's association with the protest might seem at odds with the goals of high-end retailers and brands that have worked with the PR firm, Nelson says he "never even thought twice about sending out the email."

The Occupy Wall Street protesters have been criticized for lacking a unified message, but Nelson says the overriding theme of the movement, is "dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs."

After a slow start, media interest in Occupy Wall Street has grown, and Nelson says the protesters can count on continued support from Workhouse.

He tells us he plans to continue to document the protest with"no intention of using it to increase or, by association, decrease my business."

Were he alive, Abbie Hoffman would probably approve. In his 1971 rebellions manual, "Steal This Book," the Yippie founder reportedly included a chapter about the importance of getting cheap media attention.

Obama Comments On Occupy Wall Street

Fighting Wall Street Effectively: Phase 1 How to find a credit union.

I decided to fire my first shot against the criminal banksters by closing my account with TD Bank and look for a credit union.

A credit union is owned by its customers. Customers become members who elect the board of directors in a one member, one vote system. Thus, a member with $100 in the credit union has as much voting power as a member with $1,000,000.

The board of directors are responsible for setting rate policies, hiring, and overseeing the management of the credit union. Earnings are usually returned to members in the form of higher deposit rates, lower fees, and lower loan rates.

However, I didn't realize how hard it would be to find a credit union. I thought all i had to do was walk in and sign up with cash for the deposit. Nope. This is because according to federal law you have to be a member of a credit union. And some credit unions have very strict rules on who they allow to bank with them. This is because credit unions are run by the people and not investment firms.

In order to do business with a credit union, consumers must become members. Federal law mandates that credit unions cannot do business with the general public. Membership requirements are often quite strict. For example, some credit unions will only serve employees of a certain company or government agency, some will only serve individuals who live in a certain area, other will only serve customers who belong to certain interest groups.

Don't get me wrong I am not going to give up on joining just wanted to let it be known this will take some research and determination on your part but fuck it if it was easy the New World Order would be dead already.

If you are also looking go to and use an address to search for a credit union near you.

Check the requirements of the credit union to see if you qualify to join. With this information please do not be discouraged. Do whatever you have to do to get into one and send a message to these bankers louder than anyone living in zucotti park. Fight Peacfully and effectively.
