FBI framing members of Occupy?

Many government agencies and Wall Street would like to see the end of Occupy Wall Street. Since September of last year, the movement has been challenging the business as usual attitude that many blame for the US economic crisis. Last week, the Cleveland Five, self-proclaimed anarchists, were arrested by the FBI for allegedly planning to blow up a bridge in Ohio. Law enforcement and the mainstream media have tried to link the alleged terror plot to Occupy Wall Street. Sahar Aziz, law professor at Texas Wesleyan Univeristy, joins us with more.

The corporations and the bankers are breaking the law right now as we speak and they're not arresting them.

You clearly know nothing about OWS so you should just shut the fuck up and keep your dumb ass comments to yourself.

To be fair the moneyed elite inherited their wealth, they didn't earn it. They are also throwing childish "temper-tantrums (sic)" about paying their taxes. It's like watching a baby trying to hold on to its toys at bedtime.

The combinations of Crony & Corporate Capitalism puppet-mastering Republic style govt "which is Representative govt" really is a KLEPTOCRACY or medaphorically speaking "A few foxes writing all the laws & rules the chickens must live & die by". The lesson is we must by ANY & ALL MEANS outlaw this combination "Kleptocracy" from existing in any form. Then seek out True Dierct Citizen Democracy where the citizens only have legal nation ownership plus direct rule & control over money,business & govt.

Of course "law enforcement" (American Terrorists) would try to end Occupy because they can break the law to maintain control. Time is past for people to "wake up" and end this circus.

i agree it is a police state, and i like Dr. Paul… but he wont be able to save us. no 1 man can save us from this tyranny. we are going to have to save ourselves. we fight or we die…

A good way to find that Democracy is to outlaw lobbyists. And yes, the thieves. But at this point in time we're too far down the rabbit hole to stop anything peacefully. We can't elect who we want, we can't choose anything for ourselves. People don't wan't their money going into wars they don't want our government to be involved in. People want better educations in schools that aren't sponsored and funded by corporations. No matter how peacefully we try to change things, they just don't stick.

Just targeting the lobbyist isn't enough,when the highest priority of offenders are the elites from the business community & their hijacked stooges of Representative govt & judicial system. All of it is corrupt & must be replace by decent citizens who don't believe in greed of/by/for the few must rule. The private owners of the World Banking System is a great starting point, It has control over everyones money with the most powerful lobbyist law firms being paid the most by the private owners.

STOP USING THE WORD TERRORISM. the word does not effectively describe anything real. I hope Sahar Aziz can learn to let go of the fantasy and learn about ways she can articulate her words, and ideas that do not use such ambiguous words such as TERROR…I would be skeptical of any report that talks about this concept with out going into a clearer definition and explanation of the groups they target with this blanket term

Your ten word comment is far to vague, & could be interpreted different ways. If you think a few wealthy tyrants from the business community can continue getting police departments to protect the very few minority weathy Capitalist or buy other security private forces to enable the continuation of propping-up a failed Govt & Economic structure for the citizen majority, then start your assault on the protestors & see just what happens. We will see who ends up six foot under or simply evaporated.

And what is your source for this figure of 2 to 7 per cent?

Who is "They"? Some idiot acquaintance of yours or your multiple personalities? And what "fact checking website" are you referring to? The one currently using your lower intestine for its web host? Half your inheritance taken by tax? You are an ignoramus. Estate taxes are minute and getting smaller all the time besides all the loopholes devised by the wealthy to avoid them altogether. How do you think billionaires are created, do you think they actually earn a billion dollars?

Income tax for highest US incomes: 1952 (highest) 92% 2012 35%
Estate (Inheritance) tax:
2001 exclusion (tax free) $675,000 rate 55%
2012 exclusion (tax free) $5.12 million rate 35%
So you're not only a fool but an ignorant fool. It took me less than 5 minutes to find these figures on the internet. Please restrict your stupidity to those as foolish as yourself in the future.

Depends on your definition of "wealth". I agree that a lot of money is earned, anyone who doesn't inherit a pile has to earn a living somehow. But most fortunes are inherited. Those who attain a fortune through luck or duplicity are a very small minority. I notice you fail to reply to facts stated; a trait not unusual in the true believer who is always a practitioner of the "Way of the Weasel" when shown the fallacy of their world view.

Again you try to redirect the conversation from your lies by citing irrelevances. Another attempt to weasel out and not a very intelligent one at that; please try to use a bit more wit in the future. Sadly when a fool has his foolishness exposed in public he always compounds the embarrassment, both for himself and for others, by demonstrating it beyond all doubt.

Yeah, I noticed that the "1 month ago" on your comment, and the video reload date were 'round about the same time.

Mr Obama is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a 1%er. And the great majority of the truly wealthy, the 1%ers in your parlance, inherited their wealth. People like Oprah, Gates, Jobs and Obama work for them.
So far as your ad hominem crap goes, it's just that, crap. And if you think the rich actually pay 50% inheritance tax you really are a fool.

Other people's money is my concern when it impacts on the economy as a whole not to mention the rest of society. The wealthy always seek to restrict access to basic human necessities such as health care, education, food, shelter, etc. for their own aggrandizement. But apparently you're completely ignorant of your own society so I'll leave you to stew in your libertarian swamp.

Ah, the smell of stewed libertard! Nothing else is quite so disgusting. Your parents obviously filled you up with bullshit and you've been spewing it ever since. I don't doubt they were "liberals" of the wet and windy persuasion who paid lip service social change and voted for Reagan on the sly.
