New Misfit Politics Video: The Lost Solyndra Grant Proposal

The same folks who brought you the instant classic, Attaaaaaack Watch, are now employing a little Alinsky Rule #5 on Obama’s Green Jobs fiasco:  “The Lost Solyndra Grant Proposal”:

Misfit Politics has obtained the original grant proposal failed alternative energy manufacturer Solyndra submitted to the Obama Administration’s green jobs initiative:

I like what I’m seeing from Misfit Politics. …keep up the good work, guys.

Confused Coalition of Hippies, Anarchists, Commies and Alinskyites “Occupy” Wall Street For Days of Rage Protest (With Pictures)

Amazing how these grassroots demonstrators all happen to have pre-printed signs

Watch the confusion livestream, at “Global Revolution” – (Language warning, these are leftists, after all.) I’ve been noticing that the screen goes black every time someone or some group gets too weird. That of course, could be a coincidence since the whole thing is pretty weird. One women stated, they are trying to “transform the culture” through the occupation…a Socialist who is interviewed bemoans the fact that we have “two right-wing parties” in America, today. A woman just said that Wall Street is just “one big, terrible Ponzi scheme.”

Police barricade the Wall Street Bull, and stand guard to protect it from the “peaceful” demonstrators.

Michelle Malkin notes, they’re not even sure what they’re there for.

What do they want? They’re not really sure.

When do they want it? For a couple of months, or until the weather gets too cold, anyway.

A bunch of adrift Alinskyites and disorganized organizers from a group called “Adbusters” are converging in New York City for some reason or other. They’re bringing tents, sleeping bags, yoga instructors, face paint — and at some point, they’ll get around to deciding what their “one demand” is:

On Saturday thousands of us will occupy Wall Street. We will wave our signs, unfurl our banners, beat our drums, chant our slogans … and then we’ll get down to business and hold several people’s assemblies to decide what our “one demand” will be.

Shall we demand that President Obama reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act; outlaw flash trading; impose a 1% tax on all financial transactions?

These are good ideas but not very energizing.

How about we demand the revocation of corporate personhood?

Feels a bit too abstract. Many Americans don’t fully grasp what’s at stake with this one. And besides, even if he wants to, President Obama cannot deliver this immediately. In the wake of the recent Supreme Court ruling, a reform project like this requires a constitutional amendment that would take a few years and a whole movement to achieve.

We could…..

He goes on to spit-ball some more ideas. They’ll come up with a reason why they’re there, any day now. Whatever i turns out to be, it is sure to involve other people paying more in taxes.

Here are some of the sentiments from the Occupy Wall Street participants:

Malkin continues:

The Left’s slumber party protesters say they’ll stayat least a few months until they get their way, whatever it is! Occupy Wall Street!:

On September 17, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat our one simple demand until Barack Obama capitulates.

Hey, someone notify Attttaaaaack Waaaaaatch!

Here are the Days of Rage Yoga brigades symbolically demonstrating for the world “healing and not destruction and corporate greed” or something….

Due to excellent police work, the bull remains safe:

LaborUnionReport at Big Government: #OccupyWallStreet Just a Stroll In The Park.

“The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry…”

What started out as a beautiful, sunny Saturday in New York turned cloudy by mid-afternoon and, while the weather was still mild by 3:15, it became clear by a quick ride through the streets surrounding Wall Street that, despite a warm up event back in August, protesters would not be fulfilling their goal of occupation this weekend.

The NYPD had a sea of blue uniformed officers, as well as police in plain clothes swarming the financial district. Empty police vans, cops with bunbles of zip ties (to be used as handcuffs) on their belts. Streets were closed off with both barricades and a literal solid wall of NYPD officers were blocking the entrances to Wall Street. There would be no occupation.

In fact, were it not for the help from one of New York’s finest giving direction to the new site of #OccupyWallSt, one might have never found the thousand (plus or minus) people occupying Zuccotti Park.

UPDATE – Sunday, September 18. The Ragers are still camped out and intend to stay on through the opening of the stock market tomorrow morning.

September 17 was supposed to be the Day of Rage, the starting point of an anti-capitalist revolution that (in theory) was going to sweep the country coast-to-coast. As I noted yesterday, “The plan is to protest in state capitals and major cities across the nation, but the focus of the revolution will be in New York, where a hoped-for 20,000 anti-capitalists will ‘occupy’ Wall Street.”

I dutifully sent my operatives out to cover what were to be three of the largest Day of Rage protests — in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles — so humanity would have a full record of this pivotal moment in history.

Really, I should have learned my lesson by now: The bigger the build-up to a protest, and the more grandiose the promises, the louder the sound of the bellyflop onto the dustbin of irrelevancy.

In other words: “Day of Rage” was a massive FAIL.

This photo essay includes photos from all three protest sites (NY, SF and LA) integrated together, to give you the feel of the fizzled revolution as a whole.

The anti-capitalist organizers announced that they would march to a nearby Wells Fargo branch, invade and occupy!

But, you see, they didn’t count on me throwing a monkey wrench in the works. I skittered ahead, and got to the Wells Fargo about two minutes before the protesters did. I stepped inside and told the security guard that a group of political activists were about to take over the bank.

Then I slipped out the other door and came around front. By the time the protesters finally arrived for their “sneak attack” …

Charles Krauthammer On Solyndra: A “Toxic Combination Of Lenin Socialism and Crony Capitalism”

Charles Krauthammer and other guests on Hannity, Friday night,  discussed the bankruptcy of Solyndra along with some other scandals and corrupt practices within the Obama administration. Krauthammer soberly explained the problems with the Obama administrations approach, calling it a classic example of the toxic combination of Lenin Socialism and crony capitalism -“the Socialist idea of experts over the markets made even worse when it involves cronyism, favors and corruption.”

“You destroy an economy when you think a politician in a centralized state knows where the capital should be allocated,” he said.

Later on in the show, Pat Cadell and Bill Cunningham joined him. Cadell’s disgust and contempt for what’s been going on in the Obama administration was palpable, and he slams the media for failing to cover plethora of scandals adequately:

One reason Obama has been able to get away with as much as he has, is because the media has been giving him a pass since the beginning of his term. When they don’t cover cover the corrupt practices of this administration, (and there have been too many to count), the scandal gets flushed down the memory hole. We’ve reached a point, however, where the scandals are too big, and too plentiful to ignore.

Earlier this week, James Carville said Obama should start firing people, including Eric Holder.

Holder would be a great start.
