Just whose idea was this "Occupy" phenomenon?; Revolution lesson plans; AFL-CIO funds "Occupy"; ACORN has key role in organizing and money-gathering for "Occupy"; "Occupy" cooks tiring of cooking for "professional homeless people"; "Occupy" to take direct action against banks; Obama says America has lost its ambition; One more groups gets to erase debt, vote for Obama; Americans against loan forgiveness by government; Students to save $10/month; If we don't reelect him, we will "be on our own";

Business Insider reported: Stephen Lerner, [former head of SEIU] said that unions and community organizations are, for all intents and purposes, dead. The only way to achieve their goals, therefore--the redistribution of wealth and the return of "$17 trillion" stolen from the middle class by Wall Street--is to "destabilize the country." 
The plan is designed to destroy JP Morgan, nuke the stock market, and weaken Wall Street's grip on power, thus creating the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government.
The former SEIU official, Stephen Lerner, spoke in a closed session at a Pace University forum last weekend.

Lerner's plan is to organize a mass, coordinated "strike" on mortgage, student loan, and local government debt payments--thus bringing the banks to the edge of insolvency and forcing them to renegotiate the terms of the loans.  This destabilization and turmoil, Lerner hopes, will also crash the stock market, isolating the banking class and allowing for a transfer of power.
Lerner's plan starts by attacking JP Morgan Chase in early May, with demonstrations on Wall Street, protests at the annual shareholder meeting, and then calls for a coordinated mortgage strike.
Lerner also says explicitly that, although the the attack will benefit labor unions, it cannot be seen as being organized by them. It must therefore be run by community organizations.
Lerner was ousted from SEIU last November, reportedly for spending millions of the union's dollars trying to pursue a plan like the one he details here.
He said, "There are actually extraordinary things we could do right now to start to destabilize the folks that are in power and start to rebuild a movement.'

Townhall reveals: Far-left social justice teachers never miss an opportunity to push their agenda in the classroom. As you’ll see in my upcoming book, “Indoctrination: How ‘Useful Idiots’ Are Using Our Schools to Subvert American Exceptionalism,” leftist teachers use moments like the #OccupyWallStreet protests around the country to push their agenda of shifting America leftward away from a free market system.
The New York Times has also published a lesson plan [PDF here] for teachers, entitled, “Who Are the 99 percent? Ways to Teach About Occupy Wall Street.” The plan begins:
Overview | Why are protesters occupying Wall Street? What are they protesting, and what are their goals? In this lesson, students are introduced to Occupy Wall Street and then investigate the movement more deeply.
Warm-Up | Provide students with the following six slogans that have been displayed on placards during demonstrations being staged as part of a political movement. (At this point, do not identify the movement; you may also want to obscure the fact that the movement is contemporary.) Invite the class to guess which movement the placards are from.
Human Need Not Corporate Greed
Jobs, Justice and Education
Save the American Dream
We are the 99%
Those purveyors of straight journalism at the New York Times – they’re so helpful in providing materials so students can “learn” about what’s behind #OccupyWallStreet.
Remember just a few days ago when AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka told C-Span viewers that his federation was only providing support, places to meet, water, food, but NO money?
Well, it turns out the AFL-CIO has vowed to provide legal support and is also encouraging people to be arrested…
The former New York office for ACORN, the disbanded community activist group, is playing a key role in the self-proclaimed “leaderless” Occupy Wall Street movement, organizing “guerrilla” protest events and hiring door-to-door canvassers to collect money under the banner of various causes while spending it on protest-related activities, sources tell

NY Post reports: The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday -- because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.
For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.
Big Government reports: The Occupy movement is planning to take ‘direct action’ against banks in the next several days, using a variety of tactics, according to video and email evidence compiled by Big Government. These tactics include physical occupations of banks, and attempts to encourage financial runs on the banks.
In this clip from the video bombshell that BigGovernment revealed on Sunday night, we see a New York Times freelance reporter and a self-described ‘commie’ laughing over the possibility of criminal acts against banks – has have happened recently in Dallas, Oakland, Los Angeles and Minneapolis.  The assault on banks  appears to be the movement’s latest strategy and  part of an overall scheme to ‘take over the banks, to nationalize them’, as one #OWS supporter said in a recent email revealed by
The Baltimore Sun writes: At a San Francisco fundraiser yesterday, the President had this to say:

Speak for yourself, Mr. President.  Our ambition, imagination and will is completely intact -- it's just that we're saddled with a leader who neither understands nor respects the American character, and then projects his inadequacies onto us.,_mr_president
The Baltimore Sun writes: The Obama Administration announced it will accelerate changes in the federal loan program to make it easier for certain students to repay their loans.
Students enrolled in the Income Based Repayment Plan will have their payments capped at 10 percent of discretionary income starting next year, and any remaining balance after 20 years will be forgiven.  The Income Based Repayment Plan has been available since 2009 and has limited monthly payments to 15 percent of discretionary income with remaining debt is forgiven after 25 years.

Next year’s changes were scheduled to take effect in 2014, but the White House noted that borrowers needed help now.,0,584536.story?track=rss

Rasmussen Reports: The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 21% of American Adults think the federal government should forgive the nearly $1 trillion in loans it made or guaranteed to help students pay for a college education. Sixty-six percent (66%) oppose the forgiveness of all student loans.Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.


The Atlantic reports: Obama's Student-Loan Order Saves the Average Grad Less Than $10 a Month


ABC News reports: At a million-dollar San Francisco fundraiser today, President Obama warned his recession-battered supporters that if he loses the 2012 election it could herald a new, painful era of self-reliance in America.
“The one thing that we absolutely know for sure is that if we don’t work even harder than we did in 2008, then we’re going to have a government that tells the American people, ‘you are on your own,’” Obama told a crowd of 200 donors over lunch at the W Hotel.
“If you get sick, you’re on your own. If you can’t afford college, you’re on your own. If you don’t like that some corporation is polluting your air or the air that your child breathes, then you’re on your own,” he said. “That’s not the America I believe in. It’s not the America you believe in.”
