What? Attacks on Occupiers were coordinated by Obama's people?

Mayor Quan with peace dove in hand.
Yes they were. The simultaneous and unprovoked, often violent attacks on the anti-Wall St. protesters these past three weeks, were the product of a well-coordinated plan, originating inside the Obama administration. I had suspected as much when I learned that Mayor Jean Quan was at the White House the morning of the violent police assault on peaceful protesters in Oakland which resulted in the wounding of an Iraq Marine veteran.

Rick Ellis, at the Minneapolis Top News Examiner, quotes a Justice Dept. official:
According to this official, in several recent conference calls and briefings, local police agencies were advised to seek a legal reason to evict residents of tent cities, focusing on zoning laws and existing curfew rules. Agencies were also advised to demonstrate a massive show of police force, including large numbers in riot gear. In particular, the FBI reportedly advised on press relations, with one presentation suggesting that any moves to evict protesters be coordinated for a time when the press was the least likely to be present.
Quan admitted in a BBC interview, that her raid on the Oakland Occupy encampment, came after a conference call with leaders in 18 cities. Quan, who at first was apologetic about the violent raids, now claims she ordered them because "anarchists" had taken over leadership of the movement.

Quan's actions have now been repudiated by long-time adviser and friend Dan Siegel, who has resigned in protest.

One interesting sidebar: It appears that Justice Dept. and White House PR team waited until Obama was out of D.C. and traveling abroad before moving against the 99 percenters. Was this to shield him from the fallout once the story broke?

  1. Mike,
    Thanks for this. Obama's trip was timed. Remember how often Daley used to go to China? Same m.o. They (Duncan, Emanuel) are trying to separate the President from his own policies. Good luck with that. What are we doing putting a base of 2,500 in Australia? Protecting Taiwan? Really?

    Btw, CPS has come up with crummy data to "prove" schools are failing.
    They releaed it yesterday at report card pickup.

    Based on a Scantron test taken 2 weeks after school began in September, when the kids have yet to settle in, it's a bunch of crapola.

    My daughter hit 99th percentile in Reading but the paper indicated that she would only meet expectations on the ISATs.

    She hit 98th percentile in Math and it indicated that she would exceed expectations on the ISAT.

    Then the powers that be aggregated the data and put out a report card on the chool, different from the ISBE report card as it was based on Scantron test only.

    Keller had 100% meets and 92% exceeds on ISATs in 2011.
    But this piece of paper had lower numbers -- much lower for some new undefined category that is called making progress.

    Wish someone would analyze this quickly, as it is the basis I fear of many school closings and firings.

    Could be the basis for many lawsuits, too.

    Karen should make changes and move on, btw.
