Dow Jones Index Hits 13,000 For First Time Since Obamacare/Socialism

Back in May of 2008, everything was awesome. George W. Bush was the president, for example, and we were only a few months into the nationwide housing collapse that is still lingering today. And that was the last time the DJIA stock index of major U.S. companies touched 13,000. Read more on Dow Jones Index Hits 13,000 For First Time Since Obamacare/Socialism…

Jackass NYPD Pigs Throw Protesters In Jail And Eat All Their Food

New York City cops arrested eight protesters dressed in Robin Hood garb during a joint OWS-World Aids Day march demanding a Financial Transaction Tax on Wall Street to help restore the $10 million in HIV/AIDS services funding that Michael “I eat ground up poor people for breakfast” Bloomberg cut last year, but it wasn’t the Robin Hoods who got to do any stealing! Supporters sent the protesters a couple large pizzas to tide them over in jail, which the greedy precinct officers of Nottingham promptly confiscated and gobbled up for themselves. As any four-year-old who has seen the Disney version of Robin Hood can tell you, that is not how the movie is supposed to go.

Republican Strategists ‘Frightened To Death’ By #OWS Movement

While the Occupy Wall Street movement can sometimes seem to be more about tents and police and pepper spray than the crushing economic injustice in this country, Republican political operatives are having no trouble at all figuring out exactly what #OWS wants. “I’m so scared of this anti-Wall Street effort. I’m frightened to death,” top GOP strategist Frank Luntz said at the Republican Governors Association meeting in Orlando this week. “They’re having an impact on what the American people think of capitalism.” Uh oh, looks like the dupes are starting to figure out capitalism isn’t fair. The GOP better have some pat answers ready when their former stooges in the destroyed middle class start asking fancy questions about income equality!

Power-Crazed Twerp Bloomberg: ‘I Have My Own Army’

Sociopathic kleptocrat billionaire Micheal Bloomberg came back from his castle on Bermuda to announce that buying three terms as New York’s mayor is the bestest present he could buy someone as awesome as himself, because he has “the seventh biggest army in the world” in the form of the NYPD, his own personal military force. You know who else had their own huge army, before their heads rolled into a handcrafted French basket? Read more on Power-Crazed Twerp Bloomberg: ‘I Have My Own Army’…

What’s Really Behind the Nationwide Raids Against #OWS

For a decade now, the Department of Homeland Security has coordinated the law enforcement efforts of America’s major cities, both through the U.S. Conference of Mayors and through a direct network of the nation’s big city police chiefs. And yet, there was widespread “mainstream media” suspicion when reports surfaced of coordinated national assaults against the economic-justice protests. Why would a public so used to illegal federal wiretapping and constant physical surveillance of U.S. Muslim communities and infiltration of anti-war groups in America be surprised by the fact that federal law enforcement agencies were working to stop nationwide protests against the political/economic regime? Isn’t that their job, to stop their corrupt regime from being toppled? Read more on What’s Really Behind the Nationwide Raids Against #OWS…

Actress Loses Day Job Over Satirical #OWS Performance

An actress who hilariously portrayed a representative from Bloomberg’s office during Saturday’s weaponized drum circle around the mayor’s mansion has been fired from her job at a marketing firm. Why? Eh, got to keep the people on edge. If everybody starts protesting, well, there would be fear and confusion in the corporate boardrooms!

Not Even FBI Cares About Bloomberg’s Phony Terror Suspect

While #OWS protesters created a “weaponized drum circle” around Michael Bloomberg’s mansion over the weekend, the mayor’s attempt to get people to freak out about the terrorisms was a total failure. Not even the terror-happy federal government was convinced by New York’s lame-o made-up terror suspect. Reuters reports: Read more on Not Even FBI Cares About Bloomberg’s Phony Terror Suspect…

Fox News Cop-Slobberers Say Pepper Spray Is ‘Food Product’

What are the jabbering fascist insects at Fox News saying about the school cops viciously attacking America’s college students? Oh, you know, pepper spray is just a “food product,” right? And college kids are often liberals, so … totally warranted! And harmless! So we guess Bill O’Reilly and his vapid hair product sidekick are saying is this: Get your “food product” and head on over to the Fox News studios and prove them right! Hell, it hardly hurts to be pepper sprayed in the face. Professionals actually like it. Read more on Fox News Cop-Slobberers Say Pepper Spray Is ‘Food Product’…

Banks Bleeding From Defections As Credit Unions Gain Members

Some 650,000 people joined credit unions last month, more than all of last year combined. On “Bank Transfer Day” alone, there were 40,000 new accounts opened at credit unions. And even before #OccupyWallStreet and the Bank of America fee outrage, a summer survey found that the biggest 10 banks stood to lose about 10% of their deposits in the coming year just because of customer disgust — $185 billion out of $2 trillion in “retail deposits.” Imagine what a 20% retreat would do, or 40%. This CNN story has a great suggestion from some credit website guy: “I can see a ‘dump my bank’ as a popular [New Year’s] resolution this year.” Might work better on January 3, when banks are open. But it’s still a great idea! Read more on Banks Bleeding From Defections As Credit Unions Gain Members…

Scenes From a Civil War: Cops Vs. Crying Mothers

Hello, retired Police Captain Ray Lewis! Today has been interesting. Sorry we haven’t had more to offer. The real story is happening as a live event, created by real people, and the total absence of political leaders is one way to both judge its authenticity and dismiss any real need for “news media” — even when that “news media” is just some ongoing joke/word-terrorism project, like Wonkette. Anyway, here are some bits from what’s going on, tonight, in America. Read more on Scenes From a Civil War: Cops Vs. Crying Mothers…

Surprise, Homeland Security Coordinates #OWS Crackdowns

Remember when people were freaking out over the Patriot Act and Homeland Security and all this other conveniently ready-to-go post-9/11 police state stuff, because it would obviously be just a matter of time before the whole apparatus was turned against non-Muslim Americans when they started getting complain-y about the social injustice and economic injustice and income inequality and endless recession and permanent unemployment? That day is now, and has been for some time. But it’s also now confirmed that it’s now, as some Justice Department official screwed up and admitted that the Department of Homeland Security coordinated the riot-cop raids on a dozen major #Occupy Wall Street demonstration camps nationwide yesterday and today. (Oh, and tonight, too: Seattle is being busted up by the riot cops right now, so be careful out there.) Read more on Surprise, Homeland Security Coordinates #OWS Crackdowns…

Long Island Couple Trademark ‘Occupy Wall St.’ In Hope of The Big Bucks

What is the real trouble with the Occupy Wall Street movement these days? Nobody is making enough money off it! Anti-corporate sentiment is finally hip enough to be mass marketable again, so you can all retire those Che Guevara t-shirts at last, hippies. You’ve got a new brand now! MTV is busily producing some slick “Life of an Occupier” reality teevee program to explore this exciting new youth “lifestyle trend” to fill air time between ads for glow-in-the-dark talking sneakers and anusburgers or whatever it is ad men think the dirty communists secretly crave between their bouts of outrage, and now Long Island couple Robert and Diane Maresca have filed paperwork to trademark the phrase “Occupy Wall St.” for themselves, because it has killer brand potential.

NY Post Blames Peaceful Ocupados For (Fake?) Rise In Gun Violence

The wheezy little shadow humans hovering around in the dank caves over at Rupert Murdoch’s terror pamphlet the New York Post sure are devoting an awful lot of comical reporting to the fabrication of elaborate Jesusween bedtime stories about the Occupy Wall Street protesters. It’s like they’re kind of (very) worried or something! The latest strenuous fiction plucked at random — there are several to choose from on any given day — has a variety of anonymous numbers and sources claiming that shootings across the city have risen two billion percent since the protests started on account of the NYPD having too much fun beating up on peaceful protesters to go beating up on actual criminals with guns anymore. That would be sort of embarrassing for the cops, if it were actually true! Read more on NY Post Blames Peaceful Ocupados For (Fake?) Rise In Gun Violence…

#OWS Protesters Drown Out Idiot CNN Anchor In Las Vegas (VIDEO)

We missed this part of CNN’s debate foreplay in Las Vegas last night while we were down in Zuccotti Park, but here is a fun video of CNN’s protester-mocking anchor Erin “Seriously” Burnett making tortured faces and struggling to concentrate as a band of heroic Occupy Las Vegas protesters cripple the audio feed with their loud chanting behind her. Really, it’s just as well for ratings — Americans do not really seem to like Erin Burnett all that much, but they sure do like the Occupy Wall Street movement, by a wide margin!

GOP Debate #194,834 This Month: Choose Your Own Adventure!

OH, is there is another CNN GOP debate 2NITE? It’s a “day,” probably, so YES, there is. The alcoholic beverage makers of America thank you, CNN! Everyone else thinks you are terrible. So, uh, Herman Cain will eat a delicious fried Mexican,  Newt Gingrich will eat Wolf Blitzer, the fried Mexican will eat Rick Perry, and Mitt Romney will play the part of the plate of withered steamed brussel sprouts nobody wants to eat. Who will survive?! Odds are good you can watch it here. And now for a change, both your editors are down roaming Liberty Plaza like wild goats and will not be liveblogging, so, our dearest Wonketteers, we leave it to you to make your own fun, in the comments!

Ex-WaMu Banker Somehow Manages To Call Ocupados ‘Entitled’

Tom Leppert is running for Senate in Texas. Who is Tom Leppert? He is a strange tool who wants to collect email addresses for his Senate campaign fundraising spam lists by starting a delusional petition site to “End the Occupation” because, he says, “the Occupy Wall Street crowd represents the same flawed values that got our country into this economic mess.” Hm. What else do we know about Tom Leppert? Tom Leppert believes no one has ever heard of “Google search,” because he was also the chairman of Washington Mutual’s audit committee right before the bank torched $63 billion of its investors’ money and became the most failed bank in American history. Tom Leppert, in other words, basically INVENTED “flawed values,” so, uh, he would know?  Read more on Ex-WaMu Banker Somehow Manages To Call Ocupados ‘Entitled’…

Riley Is Not Dead (Yet): Very Brief Update From Occupied Libertyville Park

Wonkette special correspondent Riley Waggaman is like the child you threw out and then, years later, kind of felt bad about. What ever happened to him? Well, after a triumphant week or two of posting dispatches from the Occupy Wall Street campout, Riley had to hitchhike back to New Hampshire for some other kind of “personal liberty,” but now he’s back at Zuccotti.

Ocupados Cheer As Billionaires Chicken Out On Zuccotti Park Eviction

The Ocupados celebrated early this morning as NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg unceremoniously tweeted that the owners of Zuccotti Park decided for mysterious undisclosed reasons (fear) to postpone for now their plan to “clean up” (billionaire-speak for “evict, using police force”) the space at 7 a.m. Thousands of the uppity peasant-folk flooded the site overnight to lock arms and resist the planned eviction, and although the coppers didn’t get to cold haul everybody off, they still managed to have their fun beating up some of the protesters and running over them with scooters, just to SHOW THEM, TAKE THAT, FILTHY HIPPIES (who are now cleaning the park on their own).

Ungrateful NYC Panhandler Reminds Wall Street CEO of Barack Obama

What on earth is America come to these days? Wall Street CEO David Moore is just aghast — aghast! — from a thoroughly horrid recent encounter where not only did a New York City street beggar refuse a charitable one-dollar bill that Moore proffered to him, but the beggar (really, you will not believe this) even threw the dollar on the ground! The insolence! Well, this will not do. Rude manners can hurt millionaires’ feelings too, you know! Oh, and these feelings shall not go quietly into the night, no, not this time. Moore must bravely recount his story to local country club bulletin the Wall Street Journal, so that all may ponder and shake their heads. Wherefore the panhandler’s venom against the rich man? Most certainly it is an unprecedented incident in the history of New York City, just as surely as someone put the poor man up to it. The culprit? If you guessed, “Barack Obama made him do it,” keep reading! Read more on Ungrateful NYC Panhandler Reminds Wall Street CEO of Barack Obama…

Billionaire Bloomberg Terrorizes #OWS Families Out of Friday Campout

Wall Street billionaire Michael Bloomberg has been nervously “playing nice” with the Occupy Wall Street movement for a month now, because he honestly fears an Egypt-style national uprising in America that will end with most of the Wall Street plutocrats’ heads on pikes. He is correct to fear this, of course — you can only fuck over 99% of the population for so long before enough of them figure out they’ve got the advantage. Also, Bloomberg’s wife-lady is on the board of the company that “owns” the public greenspace known as Zuccotti Park/Liberty Square. So it’s going to stain Bloomberg when the jackbooted thugs and bulldozers move in on the peaceful protesters. Still, Bloomberg is hearing from his fellow kleptocrats all day long, and they are scared, and he’s scared, and they’re telling him, “Listen you had better DO something about this bullshit, it is totally getting out of hand,” and the Gulfstreams are fueled up and waiting on the tarmac, servants and nannies and mistresses and little overly groomed dogs and even wives & children at the ready.

69 Percent of Fox News Poll Takers In Favor of Occupy Wall Street

WHUT MADNESS IS THIS? 69% of FoxNews.com’s illiterate poll trolls love the Occupy Wall Street protest so much they want to marry it and get pregnant with miniature copies of Das Kapital? Ha ha, no, it was probably a handful of bored Daily Kos commenters clicking the “YES” button on the survey over and over several hundred thousand times, to give the Internet a special present just in time for Jesus Ween.
