The Occupy Wall Street movement, which blazed brightly two years ago amid a sea of arrests, vandalism and attacks against the wealthy, is coming back in the form of an online TV channel.
Occupy Television, in conjunction with FilmOn Networks, the National Convention PBC and a new union of the groups Occupy Television, ArticleV.org, and the National General Assembly, vows to bring the group's mission to the masses.
As I predicted Texas Governor Rick Perry's attorney's have filed to have the case dismissed outright with prejudice. Go to the link to read the writ.
I must say this is one of the best writs I've seen in a while. It details why using the courts for political reasons is a bad idea and the freedoms it attacks on us and our political system.
United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron cut his summer vacation short to return to his office and discuss strategy related to the beheading of an American journalist by ISIS.
In other news, President Obama returned to his vacation and played golf with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning.
They are probably correct in their fears….
Check it out:
Natural gas producers are keeping quiet about the controversial power plant rules from President Obama, fearing they could become the next target of federal regulators.
At least in the short term, a government-forced shift away from coal power would be a boon for the natural gas industry, which is already experiencing a renaissance thanks to advances in the drilling technique of fracking.
Well the real Sarah Palin has surfaced with her tax the rich schemes. Seems she favor collectivism in Alaska's energy reserves. Her fellow Alaskans collected annual payments of some $1,200 a resident. Now the energy companies want it back! Sound familiar?

Quote from article:
But labor organizations are now piping up regarding an Environmental Protection Agency proposal to cut carbon-dioxide emissions by 30 percent by 2030. The rules are intended to curb global warming.
Last week, Edwin Hill, president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), penned an op-ed claiming the plan would “have a dramatic impact on the American economy but only a minimal effect on global carbon emissions.”
Governor Nixon, of Missouri has signed an executive order to deploy the National guard to Ferguson. That will also mean more serious military equipment is on its' way. Hopefully they will also be able to train local PD officers as far as military hardware use is concerned.
"A Travis County grand jury Friday indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest.
Grand jurors charged Perry, 64, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony. The first charge carries a punishment of 5-99 years and a fine of up to $10,000. The second charge is punishable by 2-10 years and a fine of up to $10,000.
The indictment stems from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.5 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget."
The 13abc I-Team has uncovered a letter from the Ohio EPA showing concerns about the city's water system dated in June.
The letter warns the city about the lack of progress being made to improvements at Toledo's Public Water System, in particular the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant.
It goes on to say the plant is vulnerable to potential failures that could severely impact the city's ability to provide enough safe water to its citizens.
Prior to last weekend, probably most of us had never seen nor heard of Edward Moore, director of Toledo's Department of Public Utilities. We found out all too well the important role that this man plays in making our lives comfortable. We put a lot of trust in the person who holds that position.
Well, there is an interesting story behind Moore. During the Bell administration, Moore was the director of the City's Department of Public Service. When Collins became mayor, he replaced Moore with William Franklin. Replacing Moore, who is African American, added to the heat that Collins took for not appointing enough minorities to high-level positions. In a December 16, 2013, Blade article, Collins explained that he had nothing against Moore, but he needed to have "people in positions that I have confidence in."
Collins' choice for the director of Public Utilities, Robin Whitney, served for four months before leaving to take a job with ProMedica.
So what does Collins do? He appoints the person who he previously did not have enough confidence in to retain in the Public Service position, as the new director of Public Utilities.
And there's more.
Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King reignited the debate Sunday about the Republican-led House considering impeachment proceedings for President Obama, just days after party leaders furiously tried to extinguish such talk.
King suggested on “Fox News Sunday” that the impeachment issue could be reconsidered if Obama again uses his executive powers to delay or defer deportation for illegal immigrants beyond those brought illegally to the United States in past years by their parents.
“I think then we have to start, sit down and take a look at that,” King said.
Defend this, conservatives!
On Friday afternoon Kasich released a statement saying he was going to appoint Rick Hodges as Director of the Ohio Department of Health. Hodges, a former lawmaker, currently leads the Ohio Turnpike Commission. Hodges will be replacing Dr. Ted Wymyslo… and that “Dr.” part is kind of important.
According to Ohio Revised Code 121.10:
The director of health shall be either:
(A) A physician holding the degree of doctor of medicine from a medical college approved by the state medical board who, before assuming his duties, has been licensed to practice medicine in the state and who has had experience in pursuing some phase of medical practice;
(B) An individual who has had significant experience in the public health profession.
Ohio Governor Kaisich votes down SB310
Ohio Gov. John Kasich Signs Nation’s First Renewable Energy Freeze June 13, 2014
“Gov. Kasich promised Ohioans he would protect Ohio families, create Ohio jobs, and champion clean energy technologies. By signing this devastating bill, he has decided to ignore the health and economic interests of everyday Ohioans in favor of big corporations. We need Gov. Kasich to be strong on energy efficiency, renewable energy, and green jobs to move Ohio forward.”
Went to listen to the weekend WSPD programming and was shocked to hear Fred Lefebvre giving live coverage of the global warming Lake Erie toxic algae bloom. The water crisis is being covered by program director Scott Sands unlike in 2010 when a killer tornado tore through the Toledo area, on a weekend, while WSPD news staff enjoyed the weekend off. Tuning in for about five minutes Marcy Kaptur spoke live about the problems she is having getting funding to upgrade our crumbling infrastructure.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has upheld the 2011 law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers, sparked massive protests and led to Republican Gov. Scott Walker's recall election and rise to national prominence.
And it was a 5-2 vote.
Interesting report-Earlier this month, Breitbart London reported that a Welsh government office was to scrap its £50,000 wind turbine after it generated just £5 of electricity per month. It now turns out that this is not the only place small-scale wind-turbine to have proved completely pointless.
Here is a list (courtesy of Not a Lot of People Know That) of 12 other local authorities wasting money on turbines that have proved to be next-to-useless.
Border Patrol Agent: Immigration Crisis has been Orchestrated as “Asymmetrical Warfare” to Destroy the Country from Within
Last week former U.S. Rep. from Florida and current Fox News contributor Allen West urged everyone to watch a YouTube video of an interview with Zack Taylor. Taylor is the chair of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO). He's been quoted in the Washington Times, and interviewed by the likes of Breitbart Texas and The Blaze.
But it's Taylor's recent interview for a documentary by Chris Burgard that's been burning up the conservative internet. Burgard is filming "Back to the Border," a sequel to his 2006 original documentary, "Border."
