Contrary to reports of its demise, the Occupy movement is alive and well. Occupy still protests the rule of the 1 percent, and its parasitic qualities vis-a-vis the 99 percent.

Conservatives railed against the video below. Glen Beck and others claimed that Occupy members worship a golden bull, not understanding the sarcasm and the corporate logos  that adorned the bull. In fact, Occupy members used the video to mock Beck and others who worship the almighty dollar and their corporate masters.

“Go free, very free,” is the Obama motto for his campaign contributors at Goldman Sachs, J. P. Morgan, Bank of America and other banks and bankers that tanked the economy. So not one Wall Street criminal has gone to jail. Instead of going to jail, the bankers, the banks, and their investors got bailed out to the tune of $26 trillion dollars given to them by the Federal Reserve. Meanwhile, the 99 percent got the shaft.

The Bilderberg Group

Mitt Romney and Bill Gates went to the Bilderberg Group meeting a few days ago in Virginia. A bunch of rich people started the group way back when, and here they were in Virginia figuring out ways to control governments better, to the detriment of the 99 percent. Maybe that’s why Tea Party and Occupy members were protesting the meeting together. Anyway, take a look at the video below and you’ll see the danger Bildenberg poses to the rest of us. The primary purpose of the group seems to be to redistribute income from the 99 percent to themselves.

Ben Cohen is the co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. He’s also a financial backer of the Occupy movement. Cohen says he is helping to launch “a campaign this summer to highlight the influence of corporate money in American politics.”

“Cohen and the Move to Amend advocacy group will distribute rubber stamps with anti-corporate election spending messages so that the politically minded can mark their dollar bills. The end goal: To secure a constitutional amendment saying corporations do not enjoy the same protected rights as individuals and that money is not a form of speech.”

Has the world gone crazy? Are cats kissing dogs? Nope, but hundreds of Tea Party, Occupy and 9-11 Truth activists are protesting a secretive meeting of powerful international leaders for a third day Saturday.

The protesters were gathered outside the Westfield Marriott hotel in Chantilly, Virginia where members of the Bilderberg group are meeting.

According to Wikipedia, “The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of approximately 120 to 140 guests from North America and Western Europe, most of whom are people of influence. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications. Meetings are closed to the public.”

While Occupy and labor unions protested against income and wealth inequities engineered by governments across the globe, CEO’s in the United States received 15% pay increases for pushing down wages and benefits, shipping jobs overseas, tanking the economy, and generally mismanaging their corporations.

Dude! What happened to my country? The one percent has received 93 percent of total US income growth during the last two years, and free trade treaties, deregulation and the failure of the government to enforce the Sherman Anti-Trust Act have all played a role in the redistribution of income from the 99 to the one percent.
