RUSH: One of the great myths of Thanksgiving is that we swindled the Indians when we bought Manhattan Island from them for twenty-four bucks. It turns out, according to a book about Teddy Roosevelt, that that's not true. It turns out that the Indians are the ones that ran the real estate scam when they sold Manhattan.

***Updated 11/29/2011– Today we hit incident 360
New commentary has been added. Original commentary can be found below the Rap Sheet.
Don’t let the MSM get away with lying to you. Obama and the Democrats are all on record endorsing, embracing, encouraging and emboldening #OccupyWallStreet.
The plan was a simple one. The path to Obama’s second term requires that enough voters forget that our current economic woes are the fault of a failed President who enjoyed two years of having every single item on his wish-list passed by Congress. And so the idea was to create Occupy in order to give the MSM the cover they desired to spend every single day up until the election talking about greed and income inequality in order to blame both for the stagnant economy.
The hope was that by repeating this message incessantly, enough voters could be convinced that Wall Street, and by extension, evil Republicans, were to blame for our chronic unemployment, record deficits, and stillborn economic growth. President Obama who?
Fortunately for America, this plan has not only failed miserably it has backfired completely. Thanks to the rise of New Media and our unwillingness to let the MSM’s lies, bias, and cover ups stand for even one more day, Occupy is in its death throes and might take the President and Democratic party down with it. First and foremost, we uncovered the lie that Occupy was grassroots and then we exposed every Occupy rape, poop, death, overdose, old woman thrown down the stairs, attack on a police officer, and public act of masturbation. In the process, public opinion turned against the Occupiers and as a result these Leftists have started doing what the Left always does when they lose … have a tantrum:THE RAP SHEET AT BIG GOVERNMENT

What if the whole purpose of the Constitution was to limit the government? What if Congress' enumerated powers in the Constitution no longer limited Congress, but were actually used as justification to extend Congress' authority over every realm of human life? What if the president, meant to be an equal to Congress, has become a democratically elected, term-limited monarch? What if the president assumed everything he did was legal, just because he's the president? What if he could interrupt your regularly scheduled radio and TV programming for a special message from him? What if he could declare war on his own? What if he could read your emails and texts without a search warrant? What if he could kill you without warning?
What if the rights and principles guaranteed in the Constitution have been so distorted in the past 200 years as to be unrecognizable by the Founders? What if the states were mere provinces of a totally nationalized and fully centralized government? What if the Constitution was amended stealthily, not by constitutional amendments duly passed by the states, but by the constant and persistent expansion of the federal government's role in our lives? What if the federal government decided whether its own powers were proper and constitutional?
What if you needed a license from the government to speak, to assemble or to protest the government? What if the right to keep and bear arms only applied to the government? What if posse comitatus -- the law that prohibits our military from our streets -- were no longer in effect? What if the government considered the military an adequate dispenser of domestic law enforcement? What if cops looked and acted like troops and you couldn't distinguish the military from the police? What if federal agents could write their own search warrants in defiance of the Constitution? What if the government could decide when you weren't entitled to a jury trial?
What if the government could take your property whenever it wanted it? What if the government could continue prosecuting you until it got the verdict it wanted? What if the government could force you to testify against yourself simply by labeling you a domestic terrorist? What if the government could torture you until you said what the government wanted to hear? What if people running for president actually supported torture? What if the government tortured your children to get to you? What if the government could send you to your death and your innocence meant nothing so long as the government's procedures were followed? What if America's prison population, the largest in the world, was the result of a cruel and unusual way for a country to be free? What if half the prison population never harmed anyone but themselves?
What if the people had no rights except those the government chose to let them have? What if the states had no rights except to do as the federal government commanded? What if our elected officials didn't really live among us, but all instead had their hearts and their homes in Washington, D.C.? What if the government could strip you of your rights because of where your mother was when you were born? What if the income tax was unconstitutional? What if the states were convinced to give up their representation in Congress? What if the government tried to ban you from using a substance older than the government itself? What if voting didn't mean anything anymore because both political parties stand for Big Government?

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE SOON IN EUROPE: THE NEXT DOMINO TO FALL IS AMERICA
Germany told it must act to save Europe...
Impassioned plea for continent to avoid 'apocalypse'...
Warned of 'highly devastating outcomes'...
Just days until collapse?
I have read many articles about your case and my feelings about this whole thing are mixed. You have done or said things that were really stupid. At the same time, I am sure that you have not been fairly tried and judged.
There is no Emile Zola willing to tell the American People that injustice by the Government against one citizen is tyranny against all Americans.
Therefore, I use my own right finger to point to the high and mighty oligarchy that rules our once Free Republic and shout at the top of my voice:
"J'Accuse!" - "I ACCUSE!"
Dreyfus, who was completely innocent, received an unfair trial at his court martial; the prosecution's case had no substance, and the conviction was based on false, supposedly incriminating documents, not introduced into evidence or disclosed to Dreyfus, which were secretly delivered to the trial judges after they had retired to consider their verdict. Dreyfus was sentenced to life imprisonment and expelled from the army. He was incarcerated off the coast of South America on Devil's Island from 1895 until 1899.

Pepper sprayed students admit they provoked cops
Wow – just a week ago pundits in the mainstream media were declaring this the 'Kent State moment' for Occupy Wall Street, while at the same time amateur photoshoppers across the world were turning the incident into the latest internet meme. Shockingly, the viral “outrage” that accompanied video and photos of the incident may turn out to be as baseless as the claims that the ‘Occupy’ movement is grassroots. Like much of the ‘Occupy’ movement – the UC Davis incident is rooted in lies, manipulation, and a whole lot of bullcrap. Get more HERE.
Obama nixes 'God' from Thanksgiving message
The President delivered the traditional Thanksgiving message from the White House last week and of course he botched it just like pretty much everything else he's done since taking office. Should we really expect him to start fixing the nation's problems when he can't even deliver a decent holiday message? Glenn goes to the original, George Washington, to show Obama how it's done. WATCH
Thank God I’m American: After stories of American’s running over each other for Black Friday shopping deals, it’s important to slow down and remember how blessed we truly are as a nation. President Obama may have left God out of his Thanksgiving message, but don’t make the same mistake. Take time to give thanks for the blessing it is to be an American. READ.

The following video was posted at both LiveLeak.com and You Tube, and provides "a glimpse of what went on during interrogations of [Afghan] insurgents by Jonathan Idema," who worked in conjunction with NATO forces in Afghanistan "counterterror" operations.
Idema is a controversial figure. He was arrested by Afghan authorities in July 2004 in Kabul, where according to a New York Times report, he had been holding eight men prisoner. Some of these men "said they were kicked and beaten, had scalding water poured on them, and had their heads repeatedly dunked in a bucket of water." Idema was pardoned by Afghan President Karzai in March 2007. He had claimed all along that he was working at the behest of U.S. authorities. The U.S. denied this, though admittedly he did work with international forces on counterterrorism operations.
In a well-documented examination of his career at Wikipedia, Idema's connections with U.S. Special Forces is dissected. Idema's various disgraces and problems with the military never kept him from working at various times with U.S. Special Forces, and interestingly, he has been connected to private contracting firms associated with the "war on terror," including Star America Aviation Company, Ltd. (SAAC).
One of the latter company's executives is retired Major General Jack Holbein, a former leading commander at U.S. Special Forces Command. SAAC is linked to a shell company, Isabeau Dakota, Inc., that listed Idema's father as president and sole officer, in that both are registered as corporations by the same individual, William L. London, who appears to be an attorney in Sanford, North Carolina. There is some evidence, given the connections noted in his Wikipedia entry, that Idema served as an off-the-record asset or operative of U.S. Special Forces.
Major General Holbein was listed in the 2008 Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) report on detainee abuse (large PDF) as one of the recipients of the Defense Department's interrogation-torture proposal developed by James Mitchell and John "Bruce" Jessen at Joint Personnel Services Agency (JPRA). Holbein was then Chief of Staff at U.S. Joint Forces Command (JFCOM), and JPRA was under command authority of JFCOM at that time. The implication of the SASC report is that Holbein and others helped send the torture proposal up the chain of command.
JFCOM was disbanded last August, "the first time a Defense Department combatant command has been dissolved" one news account explained. According to the article, by Hugh Lessig at The Daily Press:
The military is keeping the core mission of JFCOM: training the military to operate and fight together. But instead of maintaining a separate four-star command and all the overhead it entails, personnel will report directly to the Joint Staff.-------------------------------------------
The former JFCOM functions remaining in Hampton Roads include those related to joint training, developing new concepts and doctrine, experimentation and what the military calls "lessons learned."
There are problems with this latest Leftist attempt to tar and feather Republicans:
(1) The U.S. Army in Afghanistan knew early on that Idema was an ex-con, bounty hunter, psychopath and a man consumed by greed for the $25 million reward for Osama bin Laden's capture.
(2) In fact, it was the U.S. Army in Afghanistan, with the knowledge and approval of the American authorities in that war torn country, who "washed their hands" and paved the way for his arrest, trial and imprisonment by the government of Afghanistan for running a private prison and torture chamber.
(3) Shortly after Idema was imprisoned he converted to Islam and turned traitor against America. The immediate result was to be moved to a free luxury condo in the prison complete with internet/ satellite communication as a reward for his conversion to Islam and the release to Islamic authorities (for a fee, of course!) the Idema collection of torture videos. It is said that treason never profits, but in the case of Idema treason against the United States was well rewarded by foreign enemies.
4) Isabeau Dakota, Inc. with Penny Alesi as the titular president, was a front organization created by Idema in order for him to conduct business legally in the United States from Mexico, while keeping his corporate officers in the dark about what was really going on, especially in regards to the "Idema Building" in North Carolina.
(5) The connection between Isabeau Dakota, Inc. to Star Aviation, retired Major General Jack Holbein and Idema will be the subject of a future article on this blog. However, the bottom line to all Idema's relationships - business or personal - was to put dollars in his own private bank account by means of threats, deception, lies and disinformation.
Clearly, with the publication of his article, which is racing around the Leftist Blogsphere at the speed of light and will no doubt be picked up by the Big Left Media propaganda organizations like The New York Times, is a vain attempt to establish that a relationship under contract existed between Idema and the USA government to torture Afghans during 2001 to 2004.
The overwhelming evidence produced on this blog and elsewhere proves that no such contract ever existed between Idema and the American government. This particular truth the Left ignores, because it doesn't fit their agenda against intense interrogation, and political need to tar and feather Republican presidential candidates like Herman Cain as somehow responsible for the crimes of a rogue bounty hunter and traitor by the name of Jack Idema.

Methinks we need Congress to pass a new federal statute, "Threat Against The American People." Under this law a federal three judge panel would be elected every four years and empowered to investigate all threats to the American People by any person. If the evidence indicates the individual has knowingly and willingly threatened the U.S. Constitution by word or deed, they are to be put on trial for treason. If found guilty of treason they must suffer death by a public hanging.
No one is beneath the law - NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!
This would include agents of the U.S. Secret Service...

Long as I remember The rain been coming down.
Clouds of myst'ry pouring Confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages, Trying to find the sun;
And I wonder, Still I wonder, Who'll stop the rain.
I went down Virginia, Seeking shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, Wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, Still I wonder Who'll stop the rain.
Heard the singers playing, How we cheered for more.
The crowd had rushed together, Trying to keep warm.
Still the rain kept pouring, Falling on my ears.
And I wonder, Still I wonder Who'll stop the rain.

This will happen because of the economic system the various socialist and neo-socialist regimes of the world have put in place on the crack pot theory of "Mutually Assured Economic Destruction" - In other words, the "New World Economic Order" where the wheels are coming off the big red wagon, so carefully built by the elites brick by brick since the end of the Second World War on the foundation of fiat (worthless) money and government regulations with the belief the structure created was, "Too Big To Fail." Hence, if the economy in Greece hits the rocks, the EU and its German bankers can bail it out; if the economies of Europe start to go under, why help is always available from the USA? Right? America is the richest country in the world with limitless reserves of everything! And if, by some terrible economic failure caused by a Marxist president, the American economy starts sinking into the dismal deeps, why the People's Republic of China has deep pockets and plenty of reserves, and will be all too happy to give a helping hand to save good old Uncle Sam? I am right again?
If you think I am, I have this bridge in Brooklyn for sell at one dollar, but you must act today!
I do believe the "too big to fail" theory was blown out of the water by the collapse of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe in 1989 and the old Soviet Union in 1991. If more proof is needed to prove the obvious, I submit "2008 Great Government Bail Out" of "Too Big To Fail" industries and Wall Street served only to spread the blaze of an economy on fire to the current neo-socialist regime in power.
So the world is standing at the abyss of a Super Great Depression predicted long ago by Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged that will make the 1929 to 1941 depression look like a mild recession, as many national governments, including our federal government and the socialist regime in China, will go down with the "unsinkable" economic Titanic as well.
I predict that Obama will earn an infamous chapter in American history as the greatest traitor since Benedict Arnold, "The President Who Broke The American Economy," and by so doing, started the world economic collapse by building on decades of sabotage by socialist "economists" in many nations who ignored the objective law of economics based on logic and reason.
However, when America rises once again Phoenix like from the ruins - and the Free Republic will! - the new regime will be one mugged by reality, purged of its parasite socialist elite, made hard as steel by a million disasters and ably led by the highly productive rationalist laissez-faire capitalist survivors from "Galt's Gulch" whose motto will be, "NO MORE FREE LUNCHES!" and currency will be the gold dollar stamped with the American eagle.

Mohammed's first day of school in America
Mohammed entered his classroom on the first day of school in Orlando, Florida.
"What's your name?" asked his home room teacher.
"Mohammed," he replied.
"You're in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - THE LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE _ I WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO BE NAMED AFTER AN ORIENTAL TYRANT," shouted the teacher, "So from now on you will be known as "George Washington," in honor of the first president of our proud American Republic."
George Washington returned home after school.
"How was your day, Mohammed?" his mother asked.
"My name is not Mohammed. I'm an American and now my name is George Washington."
"Are you ashamed of your name? Are you trying to dishonour your parents, your heritage, your religion?
Shame on you!" And his mother beat him.
Then she called his father, who beat him again.
The next day the boy returned to school. The teacher saw all of his bruises.
"What happened to you, George? she asked.
"Well miss, shortly after becoming an American citizen with a new name, I was attacked by two fucking Muslim terrorists who I just finished reporting to the FBI.

Whoopi, you vile piece of shit, no one gives a flying fuck about the noise coming from your asshole.
Message From The New Sam Adams
This came after a long socialist evolution in American politics going back about 100 years. The election of Communist Barack Obama only sealed the deal. Our federal government has become socialist, and the American Armed Forces have become the defenders of socialism.
I think revolution is the only option for American Patriots. I realize that a majority of American do not favor taking up arms in defense of liberty at this point - They still think elections will rollback the Red Tide. It won't. The Communists (who call themselves "Progressives") also control Academia, Media and Business. The only means of restoration of the republic is by force of arms, since many thousands of hardcore socialists can only be removed from public life by brute force.
American Patriots are already revolutionists, this is in our DNA from the First American Revolution and the U.S. Civil War, but we must become radical republicans and rid our country of its ruling elite in the same ruthless way the French revolutionists rid their country of their reactionaries in 1789 to 1794.
It is well said that the U.S. Constitution is not a suicide pact. Therefore, we must make total war on all forms of socialism who attempt to hide behind that document and that infest our body politic. When these Communist parasites are terminated with extreme prejudice and our Homeland is secure once again, we must launch a counter attack against all forms of world socialism and ally ourselves with the Freedom Fighters of the planet.
The Communists declared war on Freedom in 1848.
The time has come for Freedom to declare war on Communism.
The only good Communist is a dead Communist.

I am thankful for that time my boss told me “Good job” without following it up with “this time”.
I am thankful my children can experience things in life that I never got to experience as a kid - like getting A’s on a report card.
I am thankful for steady hands and a precise eye that enabled me to punch one more hole in that last fraction of a millimeter on my belt
I am thankful for my fellow employees who understand that the break room paper towels are to be installed in the over-hand method. And I am thankful that my fellow employees who don’t understand that will read this and be healed.
I am thankful that I had no cavities on my last visit to the dentist…except for the massive cavity in the center of my bravery.
I am thankful my children can experience things in life that I never got to experience as a kid - like relaxing in front of the TV on a Saturday night and not watching Hee Haw.
I am thankful I can now get an In-N-Out Burger Double-Double anytime I want. Not to be confused with my epitaph which will probably read, “He shouldn’t have gotten an In-N-Out Burger Double-Double anytime he wanted.”
I am thankful I finally got that last of the seaweed out of my toes a mere 2 months after swimming in the Gulf of Mexico.
I am thankful that texting didn’t arrive on the scene when phones still just had rotary dials.
I am thankful my pants eventually dried that day in kindergarten when I decided that listening to the book being read during story time was more important than excusing myself to go to the bathroom. I sure wish I could remember what book that was because I haven’t come across a book since that inspired me to make that same decision again.
I am thankful my children can experience things in life that I never got to experience as a kid - like having a sandwich at school that wasn’t made with potted meat or Vienna sausage.
I am thankful we finally got some real paper towels in the break room at work and got rid of those, non-perforated rolls that belong in a grade school bathroom dispenser, much like the ones I used in grade school to wipe my mouth with after eating yet another potted meat sandwich.
I am thankful for irony- like the word “meat” in “potted meat”.
I am thankful for fond memories, like when I used to drive that old 96 Toyota Camry and….wait, that was today. Never mind.
I am thankful that my feeble mind can still do amazing math while half-asleep, calculating how many more times I can hit the snooze button and still show up to work acceptably groomed and dressed.
I am thankful that, due to proper immunizations, washing my hands regularly and being careful about what I touch and who I hang out with, I should never catch Bieber Fever.
I am thankful that I have never kept up with the Kardashians. Or maybe it makes more sense to say they aren’t keeping up with me.
I am thankful that I’ve never had my hand inside of a turkey…or any other animal for that matter.
I am thankful my children can experience things in life that I never got to experience as a kid- like riding to school in a car with their mom instead of spending 45 minutes on a bouncing, noisy bus stuffed with passengers not too unlike the passengers in that Nicolas Cage movie, ConAir- available on DVD, Blue Ray and frequently on those oddball TV channels that you rarely watch because they only show lame movies like ConAir.
I am thankful for orange juice because without it I would have no idea what an orange tastes like. Unless orange Skittles are an accurate representation of all that an orange has to offer, but I doubt it. I’m certain orange Skittles are way better than actual oranges and maybe it’s time someone start selling Skittle juice.
I am thankful my hearing is in pretty good shape despite all the times I was woken up as a kid by having cold water poured into my ear.
I am thankful that the Rangers won the World Series even though I missed the very end when the Rangers were one pitch away from clinching it because I had to go to the bathroom. Weird though. I never heard anything about a victory parade.
I am thankful my children can experience things in life that I never got to experience as a kid - like going to a birthday party with a real bounce house instead of just a stack of old, soiled mattresses.
I am thankful for the couple pairs of pants I have that don’t have that tiny, useless pockette within the regular pocket. This small pocket is just big enough for one of my keys to easily fall into but not big enough for the key to easily come back out.
I am thankful for the replica Frank Lloyd Wright clock my dad made for me in order to save $120 for an authentic one. And I am thankful for the authentic one my dad found in an antique store for $15 shortly thereafter.
I am thankful for socks. They keep my feet warm on a chilly night, they cushion my step as I walk and I can wipe my hands on them if I find myself without a napkin.
I am thankful my children can experience things in life that I never got to experience as a kid- like looking out the window and watching their dad mow the yard instead of seeing their dad looking out the window watching them mow the yard.
I am thankful that congress recently declared that pizza qualifies as a vegetable because I really need to be eating more vegetables.
I am thankful that my daughters have outgrown trips to the American Girl store. It took three or four trips to Home Depot just to undo the damage done to my man card on one visit to the American Girl store.
I am thankful that, even though these jokes are lame, they are still funnier than anything my kids watch on the Disney Channel.
Looman did receive some unexpected attention not long after he put up his signs and Facebook photos. He said someone, and he thinks he knows who it was, reported him to the FBI as a threat to national security. He said the accusation filtered its way through the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and finally the Secret Service. Agents interviewed him.

WEBSTER GROVES, MO (KMOX) - A chain of three stores that sells survival food and gear reports a jump in sales to people who are getting prepared for the “possible collapse” of society.
“We had to order fifty cases of the meals ready to eat to keep up with the demand in the past three months,” said manager Steve Dorsey at Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters Inc. in Webster Groves. “That’s not normal. Usually we sell 20 to 30 cases in a whole year.”
Dorsey says business has been brisk since the spring uprisings in the middle east, as customers share concerns about political uprisings, the world economy and the future of the United States.

My keen observation is that this coven of ruling class Demo-Nazis (Obama-Biden-Holder-Pelosi-Reid) seem to have no worry they will see the inside of a federal court CHARGED WITH TREASON when the opposition to them is rising into a solid majority status who will vote next year for any old yellow dog Republican for political office on any local, state, or federal level.
So why no worry?
Simple: THE FIX IS IN!
One way or another the Demo-Nazis plan to steal the election of 2012 because they need the power of the federal government to (1) Forever crush the Tea Party Movement (TPM) and the Republican Party (2) To avoid prison/or execution for conviction of treason. This election theft is already beginning with the OWS in the role of SA Storm Troopers who plan to conquer the streets and beat the opposition to a pulp. The coming grand theft of election will not be tolerated by the Hobbits of the TPM and most Republicans, who will rise in a very bloody Second U.S. Civil War where no quarter will be asked/given, in order to restore the American Republic and punish the evildoers.
History teaches us that no nation, including one engaged in world war as was Russia in 1917, voted for collectivism in an honest election.
...AND IF CIVIL WAR BE FORCED ON THIS FREE REPUBLIC, MILLIONS OF RIGHTEOUS AMERICANS UNCHAINED AND UNAFRAID WILL RISE TO BATTLE AT THE GENERAL'S COMMAND: "AT MY SIGNAL UNLEASH HELL!"
Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.
On the radio this morning, Glenn Beck reacted to the offensive entrance music played for Michele Bachmann on “Late Night” with Jimmy Fallon.
As you’ve likely read by now, the show’s house band purposefully played “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” as the GOP presidential contender walked out for her Monday night appearance on the show.
Beck called the incident “inexcusable” and said that Fallon should be ashamed of himself.
“Really, Fallon, really? Really? Unbelievable. You people make me sick. I would never, ever even consider doing that,” he said. “I wouldn’t do that to George Soros. I would never do that, I would never invite someone onto my ‑‑ she didn’t inflict herself on you. You invited her! You invite her into her own space, you treat her like that? You’re a despicable, reprehensible human being. You really are.”
He then called for action: “Fire ‘em, Jimmy! Fire them! They did it in your name on your show. They did it. Fire them!”SOURCE: THE BLAZE
Washington Post ^ | 11/22/2011 | Greg Sargen
For weeks now, Republicans have attacked Democrats for voicing support for the Occupy Wall Street protesters, in particular faulting the DCCC for standing up for them. And the incidents of violence and excess have led some neutral commentators to predict that Dems will pay a political price if they align themselves with the movement.
So it’s interesting to see that the DCCC is sticking by Occupy Wall Street. Indeed, the DCCC is now raising money off that recent report of a GOP-connected corporate lobbying firm’s proposed smear campaign against the movement. Nancy Pelosi has authored a DCCC fundraising email that presents this as proof that Republicans are on the side of Wall Street and against Dems and the protesters:
We have the smoking gun.
If you need further proof that Congressional Republicans are putting big Wall Street banks before middle class families, look no further than an explosive memo prepared by former John Boehner staffers-turned-banking lobbyists.

Occupy DC Expects To Be Raided, Tells Campers To Remove Drugs…
These people do drugs? I’m flabbergasted!
(Washington Examiner) — Occupy DC held an emergency meeting Tuesday afternoon to alert campers in McPherson Square that law enforcement may raid the camp sometime in the next 48 hours.
Kelly Canavan told fellow Occupiers to pack bags of belongings and be ready to go in case they were kicked out of the park. Nearby faith groups were ready to give them food and shelter in case that happens, she said.
The Occupiers were also reminded to remove illegal substances, such as knives, alcohol and drugs, including cocaine, from their tents.
Canavan told The Washington Examiner after the meeting that she and others had heard from several sources that the camp might be raided soon. She did not expect to be kicked out, but expected the tents to be searched.

An ocean of ink has been wasted "proving" that John F. Kennedy was killed by any person or organization other than the U.S. Secret Service, the law enforcement agency charged with his protection. In the 2002 book by the late Philip H. Melanson entitled, "The Secret Service: The Hidden History of an Enigmatic Agency" lays the blame for the murder of JFK exactly where it belongs: On the shoulders of the officers and their supervisors in the U.S. Secret Service charged with his protection, who not only failed to protect the president from assassination, but took part in a dastardly conspiracy to murder the young president and gave perjury to the Warren Commission in order to cover up their guilt.
This untold story is revealed in Chapter three, "Losing Lancer -The JFK Assassination" (pp.58- 89) - where we learn that SS agents Roy Kellerman and William Greer lied in their official reports and gave perjury to the Warren Commission about their actions the day of the assassination. One can understand the reason why the lies and perjury: Kellerman and Greer could have saved President Kennedy that fateful day in Dallas.
The two Secret Service agents -Kellerman and Greer - were in the "death car" with President Kennedy in Dealey Plaza. The agent in charge of the detail was Kellerman in the front seat and Greer was the driver when Oswald's first shot rang out that wounded JFK and the Texas governor. In the six or seven seconds before the fatal head shot, Kellerman froze and Greer slowed the car, instead of speeding up and/or swerving the vehicle to throw off the sniper's shots.
On Friday November 22, 1963 I was a student at Fairland High School in Rome, Ohio in the first of my afternoon classes, British Literature, or "Brit Lit" as we students called it. We were engaged in the study of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" and doing a class discussion of the "Ides of March" scene in Act III where Caesar is murdered by the Roman Republicans under the leadership of Marcus Brutus in the Senate House. About thirty minutes into our class, well conducted by Mrs. Daniels, a former subject of Queen Elizabeth and student actor at her British college, the PA announced that all students were to assemble in the cafeteria. This seemed odd and fightening, the last time this had happened at our high school was in October, 1962 during the Cuban missile crisis when the USA and USSR stood toe to toe in possible nuclear combat.
When we were seated in the cafeteria, the reason for the assembly was passed quickly from table to table: "PRESIDENT KENNEDY WAS DEAD!" Many of us shook our heads in disbelief. JFK dead? Impossible! He was too young...and too full of life. He was the husband of a beautiful woman everyone called "Jackie" who set the latest women's fashions. Kennedy was a war hero, the skipper of PT 109 who survived along with his crew a sinking by a Jap destroyer in the South Pacific during WW II. The world famous author of "Profiles in Courage." The patriot who stood down the Communists in Berlin in 1961 and during the October Missile Crisis 0f 1962. The Statesmen who told us, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. The new King Arthur of the New World who with his latter day "Knights of the Round Table" - the Armed Forces of the United States - would liberate mankind from all forms of tyranny over the mind of man!
Then a delegation of teachers led by our dour principal, Schultz, entered the cafeteria. We noticed that the normally unemotional German-American Schultz had red eyes and tears running down his face. We knew then the rumor was true: President Kennedy was dead. This raw display of sadness from a "Man's Man" like Schultz set off a wave of crying in the cafeteria, especially from the girls. My high school girlfriend, the daughter of a Baptist minister, moved her lips in the Lord's Prayer. When it became clear that Schultz couldn't force himself to make the official announcement, the assistant principal, Mr. York, told us that President Kennedy had be murdered in Dallas, Texas. This set off another wave of crying, prayers, remarks and questions. "Who killed JFK? Why didn't the Secret Service stop this from happening, Mr. York?
But York had no answers, although he did have one last announcement to make: Fairland High School was closed until further notice, and we were sent home to be with our families on what turned out to a weekend of national mourning.
Indeed, who killed President Kennedy? An ocean of ink has been spilled and several motion pictures produced that "prove" JFK was murdered by any person or organization other than the dirty little rogue Communist - Lee Harvey Oswald - using a piece of junk Italian army WW II carbine purchased for $19.95 by mail order. Conspiracy theory after conspiracy theory fail to prove anything other than the facts discovered by the Warren Commission, which were that President Kennedy was killed by a lone assassin who fired three rounds that day in Dealey Plaza from the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository.
The Wikipedia gives this account of the Kennedy assassination:
According to the Warren Commission and the House Select Committee on Assassinations, as President Kennedy waved to the crowds on his right with his right arm upraised on the side of the limo, a shot entered his upper back, penetrated his neck, slightly damaged a spinal vertebra and the top of his right lung, exited his throat nearly centerline just beneath his Adam's apple, then nicked the left side of his suit tie knot. He then raised his elbows and clenched his fists in front of his face and neck, then leaned forward and towards his left. Mrs. Kennedy (already facing him) then put her arms around him in concern. Governor Connally also reacted after the same bullet penetrated his back creating an oval entry wound, impacted and destroyed four inches of his right, fifth rib bone, exited his chest just below his right nipple creating a two-and-a-half inch oval sucking-air chest wound, then entered just above his right wrist, impacted and cleanly fractured his right wrist bone, exited just below the wrist at the inner side of his right palm, and entered his left inner thigh. The Warren Commission theorized that the "single bullet" struck between Zapruder frames 210 and 225, while the House Select Committee theorized it occurred exactly at Zapruder frame 190.
According to the Warren Commission, a second shot struck at Zapruder film frame 313 (the Commission made no conclusion as to whether this was the second or third bullet fired) when the Presidential limousine was passing in front of the John Neely Bryan north pergola concrete structure (the House Select Committee concluded that the final shot was the fourth shot). They each concluded that this shot entered the rear of President Kennedy's head (the House Select Committee determined the entry wound to be four inches higher than the Warren Commission), then exploded out a roughly oval-shaped hole from his head's rear and right side. Head matter, brain, blood, and skull fragments, originating from Kennedy, covered the interior of the car, the inner and outer surfaces of the front glass windshield and raised sun visors, the front engine hood, the rear trunk lid, the followup Secret Service car and its driver's left arm, and motorcycle officers riding on both sides of the president behind him. Mrs. Kennedy then reached out onto the rear trunk lid. After she crawled back into her limousine seat, both Governor Connally and Mrs. Connally heard her say more than once, "They have killed my husband," and "I have his brains in my hand."
United States Secret Service agent Clint Hill was riding on the left front running board of the followup car, immediately behind the Presidential limousine. Hill testified he heard one shot, then, as documented in other films and concurrent with Zapruder frame 308, he jumped off into Elm Street and ran forward to try and get on the limousine and protect the president. (Hill testified to the Warren Commission that after he jumped into Elm Street, he heard two more shots) Hill believed she was reaching for something, perhaps a piece of the president's skull. He jumped onto the back of the limousine while at the same time Mrs. Kennedy returned to her seat, and he clung to the car as it exited Dealey Plaza and accelerated, speeding to Parkland Memorial Hospital. After the president had been shot in the head, Mrs. Kennedy began to climb out onto the back of the limousine, though she later had no recollection of doing so.
In any event, whether there were one, two , or three snipers in action at Dealey Plaza that day the agency with the responsibility for protecting President Kennedy was the U.S. Secret Service. Clearly this branch of federal law enforcement failed to carry out their assigned task, and recently released documents point to gross incompetiency, delection of duty, cowardice, stupidity, perjury, conspiracy and a cover up designed to indict President Kennedy as being responsible for his own death.
THE FIRST: Secret Service Agent William Greer, a high school dropout with a tenth grade education, was the driver of the open car with containing President Kennedy and Texas Governor Connally along with their respective wives. Until that fateful day, Greer had led the life of a lackey, first in his native Ireland, and later as a driver for the Secret Service. Furthermore, it seems certain that Greer was ever given specialized training by the Secret Service on how to conduct his driving should he come under fire. The picture we get of Greer is a low I.Q. servant promoted way beyond his level competiency.
THE SECOND: Secret Service Special Agent Roy Kellerman, Greer's supervisor, who sat next to him in the front of the Kennedy's limo in Dealey Plaza. As the Secret Service Agent-In-Charge of President Kennedy's security, Kellerman made many mistakes. First of all, standard operating procedures for the Secret Service were to place agents at rear of the presidential limo and along the sides. at Love Field where President Kennedy and company started their tour of Dallas, two Secret Service agents took station at the back of the car, but were ordered off by Secret Service Agent Roberts, with no objection from Kellerman.
Melanson had this to say of the assassination of President Kennedy:
"He (Kellerman) did not relate how he had frozen for those six or seven seconds after the first shot - a time span that allowed the "kill shot" to the president's head.
Agent William Greer, the driver of Kennedy's car, neglected to admit how he had failed to hit the gas after the first shot or swerve the vehicle to throw off the unseen sniper's aim. The limo continued rolling at a snail's pace down Dealey Plaza. Worse, he actually slowed down almost to a complete stop.
As Greer followed the established procedures and waited for a command from Kellerman, the president was a proverbial sitting duck. The agents had those six or seven seconds to do something, anything, before the president's head was nearly blown off. They did nothing and covered up their actions - or lack of them - to the Warren Commission and others."
Perhaps Greer and Kellerman's lack of judgement and slow responses were the result of another little reported activity by the the Secret Service agents charged with protecting President Kennedy that fateful day in Dallas, Texas: At least nine of the agents were seen drinking on the night of November 21 - 22. A bad hangover experienced by Greer, Kellerman and other SS agents would go along way in explaining the death of a young president. The Warren Commission called this a “breach of discipline” and according to Sercret Service regulations, agents “On Call” are forbidden intake of alcohol.
Said Melanson of the testimony of Greer and Kellerman before the Warren Commission:
"At least two agents lied to the Warren Commission . Even worse, as they created the fiction about how thorough they had been, they implicitly pinned the blame on the fallen president himself, hinting that Kennedy's recklessness or fatalism - not anything the agents had done in Dallas - ignited a tragic sequence of events. Kennedy's critics still chant the mantra that the president brought it on himself. These outright lies and half-truths cannot absolve the Secret Service for losing the life of a president for the first time in its history."
Additional mistakes made by the Secret Service that made the assassination of President Kennedy almost inevitable: The dog leg turn at Dealey Plaza that made the Kennedy limo a sitting duck; the Secret Service allowed the Dallas newspapers to publish the Kennedy's exact route from Love Field to Dallas on November 19, 1963; the follow up car was too far behind the Kennedy limo and the eight agents in it, four or whom had been out late drinking, were not effective.
Said Chief Justice Earl Warren speaking of the performance of the Secret Service agents in the follow up car Texas Book in Dealey Plaza on that fateful day:
“Now other people, as they went along there, even some people in the crowds, saw a man with a rifle up in this building (Texas Book Depository) from which the president was shot. Now don't you think that if a man went to bed reasonably early, and hadn't been drinking the night before, he would be more alert to see those things as a Secret Service agent, than if they stayed up until three or four o'clock in the morning, going to beatnik joints and doing some drinking along the way.
After all is said and done concerning the death of President Kennedy, the two Secret Service agents present in the limo bear most of the responsibility: Agent Greer, the driver and his boss, Agent Kellerman. In fact, Greer was later to confess to author William Manchester that he told Mrs. Kennedy,
“Oh, Mrs. Kennedy , oh my God, oh my God. I didn't mean to do it. I didn't hear the shots. I should have swerved the car, or at least not hit the brakes and let it come to a near stop. I couldn't help it. Oh, Mrs. Kennedy, if only I'd seen it in time.”
The U.S. Secret made numerous “mistakes” - far too many and can only part of a conspiracy by a high ranking “Mr. Big” who pulled the strings of the Secret Service like a Puppet master.
Consider the roster of Secret Service personnel and their actions that led inevitably to the death of President Kennedy.
Agent Winston G. Lawson of the Secret Service Presidential Detail in the company of Agent Sorrells of the Dallas field office drove the proposed Kennedy motorcade route on November 14, 1963, and thus were well aware of the dog leg at Dealey Plaza that had to be taken at slow speed that exposed President Kennedy and his party to gun fire coming from the high rise structures in the area.
Secret Service agents assigned to the Kennedy motorcade were allowed to drink the night before into the early hours of November 22, 1963 with the knowledge of their superior officers. Secret Service regulations state clearly that “On Call” agents be alcohol free at least 24 hours in advance of a protective mission. This did not happen, nor were the hung over agents replaced with sober agents for the fateful day.
On November 19, 1963, the Dallas “Times Herald” and other local newspapers printed the exact route the Kennedy motorcade would take on November 22, 1963. It is certain that the Secret Service was aware of this breach of security, yet they did nothing to modify or change the Kennedy motorcade route. This was another major error on the part of Agents Lawson and Sorrells.
Agents Greer and Kellerman – the driver of the Kennedy limousine and his supervisor – froze when the three shots were fired by Oswald in Dealey Plaza. Agent Greer stopped the car briefly and looked back to the passenger compartment where President Kennedy was being killed and Governor Connally seriously wounded. This was in complete disregard of Secret Service regulations that required the car to speed up and make evasive moves to throw off the aim of an sniper in case of an assassination attempt. Agent Kellerman is recorded as freezing when the shots rang out. It was only when Agent Hill jumped aboard to keep Mrs. Kennedy in the car did Agent Greer put on the gas and exited the kill zone.
The actions of Agent Emory P. Roberts are highly suspect. At Love Field where the Kennedy motorcade begin that fateful day, This was highly irregular and another violation of Secret Service regulations. So unusual was this move one of the bodyguards is filmed holding out his hands as if to ask, “why?” Later when the shots were fired in Dealey Plaza, Agent Roberts ordered his men not to leave the back up car. This order was disobeyed by Agent Hill who managed to keep Mrs. Kennedy from climbing out of the presidential limousine. This was the only heroic action displayed by the Secret Service that fateful day.
Agent Kellerman and “The Battle of Kennedy's Body.” The actions of Agent Kellerman went from passive to aggressive when he and a Secret Service detail with drawn guns stole the body of President Kennedy and the blooded limousine from Texas authorities, who had jusdiction over the evidence of the homicide. This made detailed analysis of the crime scene very difficult.
Removal of the bubble-top
Another controversy with direct bearing on the criminal investigation of the assassination relates to the origin of the order to remove the bubble-top from the presidential limousine. Kinney adamantly told me that he, and not the president, was solely responsible for the removal of the presidential limousine's clear roof on November 22, 1963. However, in testimony to the House Select Committee on Assassinations, agents Kellerman and Win Lawson spoke of their involvement in that critical decision.
Kinney passed away on July 21, 1997. This correspondent cannot be definitive regarding the number of individuals involved in the decision to remove the bubble-top. However, based upon thorough investigation of the issue, the strong possibility exists that Lawson, acting through Kellerman and/or Boring, either gave the order or was represented as having given it.
Reduction of motorcycle outriders
The frequently repeated story that JFK ordered a reduction in the presence of motorcycle outriders in the Dallas motorcade is in need of correction. Although presidential motorcades on all prior stops on the November, 1963 Texas trip normally included anywhere from three to six cyclists on each side of the JFK limousine (a fact confirmed by numerous press and official White House films and photographs), the plans for Dallas were altered by Secret Service officials to give JFK just four non-flanking outriders.
Thus the presidential limousine was opened to crossfire, and the perceptions of professionally trained eye- and ear-witnesses were eliminated from the scene of the crime. Former agents Kinney and Godfrey confirmed that JFK never gave direct or implicit instructions to remove motorcycles from security positions adjacent to his car. Further, films and photographs of prior Texas trip stops clearly show a heavy motorcycle outrider presence during motorcades, up to and including the Fort Worth motorcade of November 21, 1963.
The origin of the order to strip presidential security by reducing motorcycle-based security remains mysterious, and carries sinister implications.
Could Dallas have been deemed a sufficiently non-threatening environment so as to justify a stripping of presidential security? Not according to on-the-record comments from former agents Kellerman and Abraham Bolden (to the Warren Commission and this correspondent, respectively). They stated that they were at a loss to explain or otherwise find justification for the at least three separate checks for threats and harmful subjects in Dallas conducted by the Protective Research Section of the Secret Service that produced negative results.
Given the city's history, including the 1963 attacks there against Adlai Stevenson, the acknowledged presence in Dallas of radical, violence-prone Right Wing groups and anti-Castro operatives, and the knowledge, commonly and officially held within the Secret Service and the Kennedy administration, of ongoing, non-location-specific threats against the president, those results were, in the opinion of interviewees, highly unusual.

One half second before the fatal shot. Agent Greer has stopped the limo and is looking at President Kennedy. Agent Kellerman appears frozen. At the point both JFK and Governor Connelly are wounded.
Robert F. Kennedy has been quoted as saying that LBJ was "mean, bitter, vicious -- [an] animal in many ways...I think his reactions on a lot of things are correct... but I think he’s got this other side of him and his relationship with human beings which makes it difficult unless you want to ‘kiss his behind’ all the time. That is what Bob McNamara suggested to me...if I wanted to get along.
WIKIPEDIA: "LYNDON B. JOHNSON"
Central to Johnson's control was "The Treatment", described by two journalists:
- The Treatment could last ten minutes or four hours. It came, enveloping its target, at the Johnson Ranch swimming pool, in one of Johnson's offices, in the Senate cloakroom, on the floor of the Senate itself — wherever Johnson might find a fellow Senator within his reach.
- Its tone could be supplication, accusation, cajolery, exuberance, scorn, tears, complaint and the hint of threat. It was all of these together. It ran the gamut of human emotions. Its velocity was breathtaking, and it was all in one direction. Interjections from the target were rare. Johnson anticipated them before they could be spoken. He moved in close, his face a scant millimeter from his target, his eyes widening and narrowing, his eyebrows rising and falling. From his pockets poured clippings, memos, statistics. Mimicry, humor, and the genius of analogy made The Treatment an almost hypnotic experience and rendered the target stunned and helpless.
WIKIPEDIA: "LYNDON B. JOHNSON"
In the 1948 elections, Johnson again ran for the Senate and won. This election was highly controversial: in a three-way Democratic Party primary Johnson faced a well-known former governor, Coke Stevenson, and a third candidate. Johnson drew crowds to fairgrounds with his rented helicopter dubbed "The Johnson City Windmill". He raised money to flood the state with campaign circulars and won over conservatives by voting for the Taft-Hartley act (curbing union power) as well as by criticizing unions.
Stevenson came in first but lacked a majority, so a runoff was held. Johnson campaigned even harder this time around, while Stevenson's efforts were surprisingly poor. The runoff count took a week. The Democratic State Central Committee (not the state, because the matter was a party primary) handled the count, and it finally announced that Johnson had won by 87 votes. By a majority of one member (29-28) the committee voted to certify Johnson's nomination, with the last vote cast on Johnson's behalf by Temple, Texas, publisher Frank W. Mayborn, who rushed back to Texas from a business trip in Nashville, Tennessee.
There were many allegations of fraud on both sides. Thus, one writer alleges that Johnson's campaign manager, future Texas governor John B. Connally, was connected with 202 ballots in Precinct 13 in Jim Wells County that had curiously been cast in alphabetical order and all just at the close of polling. (All of the people whose names appeared on the ballots were found to have been dead on election day.) Robert Caro argued in his 1989 book that Johnson had stolen the election in Jim Wells County and other counties in South Texas, as well as rigging 10,000 ballots in Bexar County alone. A judge, Luis Salas, said in 1977 that he had certified 202 fraudulent ballots for Johnson.
The state Democratic convention upheld Johnson. Stevenson went to court, but—with timely help from his friend Abe Fortas—Johnson prevailed. Johnson was elected senator in November and went to Washington, D.C., tagged with the ironic label "Landslide Lyndon," which he often used deprecatingly to refer to himself.
CONCLUSION: The facts of the Kennedy assassination case point in only one direction: Towards the U.S. Secret Service. I do not think they acted alone. I believe they were ordered to enable the assassination by Lyndon B. Johnson who had been a rival for the presidential nomination in 1960, and hated JFK for coming between him and the Oval Office. The facts of the case indicate that LBJ was a decades long political criminal and psychopath who stole elections and destroyed rivals.
Who else in the government had daily access to the all levels of authority in the Secret Service as did LBJ? Add to the fact that the assassination happened in Johnson's home state of Texas which he knew like every inch of his ugly naked body. The facts are that LBJ had the motive, opportunity and the pull necessary to cause the murder. It is interesting the parallel in what happened in Dallas that fateful day and the movie hit of time, "The Manchurian Candidate" in which a Communist trained assassin is dispatched to murder a presidential candidate with a high powered sniper rifle in order that his Vice President can put on, "The Bloody Shirt" and be elected President.
I know many Americans would find it unbelievable that a president's own body guards would join a conspiracy to assassinate him, so I encourage everyone to review the facts of the case. I am well aware that many Americans would not believe that the U.S. Secret Service is anything other than a band of selfless patriots who would throw themselves in front of an assassin's bullet. I can only say in defense of my thesis that I have had over 17 years experience in dealing with the Secret Service, and my observation is that these people are traitors who often give perjury in court, harass innocent suspects and invent false crimes to sent ordinary Americans to prison.
