Quote from article:
As the Obama administration faces criticism for the Justice Department’s spying on journalists and the IRS targeting of right-wing organizations, newly released documents show how the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and local police forces partnered with corporations to spy on Occupy protesters in 2011 and 2012. Detailed in thousands of pages of records from counter terrorism and law enforcement agencies, the spying monitored the activists’ online usage and led to infiltration of their meetings. One document shows an undercover officer was dispatched in Arizona to infiltrate activists organizing protests around the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the secretive group that helps corporate America propose and draft legislation for states across the country. We’re joined by Matt Rothschild of The Progressive, who tackles the surveillance in his latest article, "Spying on Occupy Activists: How Cops and Homeland Security Help Wall Street."

Was the right wing Toledo talk show host working for the Department of Homeland Security or possibly the Federal Bureau of Investigation? Did the radio host conduct surveillance on Occupy Toledo? As the female occupier in the video points out, "What exact purpose does this serve for you Fred?"

Attorney Generals like the one the Clintons had (J. Reno) in recent history have been used to do the dirty work of whoever is prez. Janet Reno, for instance didn't order the attack on Waco. Linda Tripp on "Larry King" said that Reno had asked repeatedly, was there any way she could avoid doing that. She said Hillary ordered that hit. The situation was making slick Willie look bad, you see - so compared to stupid husband's political life, what are the lives of all those children? (...appears to have been Queen Athaliah's thinking). Reno was made to publicly take the blame.

Holder, likewise, does Obama's dirty work, and many observers, both liberal & conservative think Holder will eventually be sacrificed. I don't know about that. A mixed-race guy firing a black guy - I don't think BO is up to that. I have no admiration for Holder - but have often wondered why he took that job. He had to have enough smarts to know what he was getting into. Didn't he? Is resume building worth being this particular administration's fall guy?

commenting trying to provoke someone with leftist godless idiocy ?~

You weren't in Tiffin ,yesterday in a white van were you ?
Or, was that you in the UK, hacking a mans head off ?

Either way, you Demonrats, are pure scum through and through....

Daily the radio talk show host kept a video log of Occupy Toledo as he called himself the unofficial documentarian. No other local media outlet spent as much time on OT. Why would he devote so much time to this one event if he weren't being compensated in some way?

a whole lot more often.

Getting the drift asshole ???

An UNofficial documentarian doesn't get compensated ignorant Wolfman, only a paid official documentarian would get compensated. I covered the Occupy Toledo "movement" as a labor of love and so that there would be a record for generations to come of the incredible good those people did for the city of Toledo. Just view the videos in their entirety as an historic video documentation of a people rising up to fight the man and his oppresive ways. The thousands who participated made a real difference to the people of Toledo, and their influence still reverberates today. All videos are posted online of course and are available to not only American citizens but citizens of other countries, the FBI, KGB, NSA, IRS, Interpol, Stasi, RCMP, Federales, Texas Rangers, CHips, LAPD, NYPD, CSI, Scotland Yard, CIA, Departamento de Polícia Federal, Polizia Municipale, and Muslim Brotherhood.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

The unofficial documentarian did do a service for the world but did the world take notice? With Youtube views averaging less than 250 over two years I think the true motives are not being disclosed. It sure was not for ratings then what would it be?

The lack of views only reflects on the interest in the subject matter not the unofficial documentarian. And no the Youtube videos are not for ratings, they don't count in the ratings. I wish any of the historic videos had gone viral so that the world would see what Toledo saw in it's brave occupiers, but it was not to be.

Doing something for the labor of love usually suggests the documentation will be a work of fiction.

YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY...asshole.

That's been a few years ago and I don't remember the specifics of why you were there.

I think it had to do with MoveOn.org ordering their mingions to "occupy" something-or-other and you chose International Park for a morning broadcast.

I was going to show up and lend my support for the LACK of interest in those unwashed "occupy" types, but I HAVE A JOB and couldn't hang out with the food stamp ObamaPhone crowd.

I'll try harder in the future since it appears that nobody ELSE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD cared about those "occupy" hippies who were cluttering up downtown Toledo yapping like a bunch of dogs in heat.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Better rethink those words because the Documentarian was once one of those brave occupiers. http://swampbubbles.com/blogs/wolfman/20101005/fred-lefebvre-toledo-ohio...

Holder signed off on the Fox news warrants, he can't recuse himself from that....
