Live from Occupy Wall Street:

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) the growing occupation movement happening on Wall Street and around the world. OWS is an affinity group committed to doing technical support work for resistance movements. Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally.

A democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power.

We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments.

OWS is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations.

The movement is inspired by popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, and aims to fight back against the richest 1% of people who are writing the rules of an unfair global economy that is foreclosing on our future.

The occupations around the world are being organized using a non-binding consensus based collective decision making tool known as a “people’s assembly”.

Join us and make your voices heard: Occupy Wall Street

John McCain’s Susan Rice Hypocrisy

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) opposes Susan Rice but supported Condi Rice’s massive Intelligence Failure. President Obama has yet to nominate anyone to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, but Republicans are already lining up in opposition to potential replacement U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, citing her complicity in the administration’s alleged failures in responding to the attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

On Wednesday, Sen. John McCain promised to filibuster Rice’s nomination and “do whatever to block the nomination that is within our power.” “She’s not qualified,” McCain explained, arguing that she misled the public by initially attributing the September 11 Benghazi attack to protests over an anti-Islam video. He claimed that at a minimum, Rice is guilty of “not being very bright, because it was obvious that this was not a ‘flash mob’ and there was additional information by the time she went on every news show…in America.”

But interestingly, McCain took a far different approach to another Rice in 2005. When President George W. Bush nominated National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice to the post, McCain defended the nomination, despite Rice’s central role in spreading the false intelligence that Saddam Hussein was developing weapons of mass destruction. The Democrats held hours of hearing and ultimately confirmed Rice, but not before McCain accused the opposition of using politics to delay her confirmation and challenging her “integrity”.

Seven years later, there is no evidence that Susan Rice mislead the public, yet McCain is leading the charge to oppose her. Rice was “speaking from a set of talking points provided by the U.S. intelligence community, which was also provided to Congress. The video has also been cited by those on the ground as being an impetus for the attack in recent weeks, challenging the Republican narrative.”

During a press conference on Wednesday, Obama defended Rice, saying that the has “done exemplary work.” Rice “gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her,” he said, adding that for McCain “to go after the U.N. ambassador who had nothing to do with Benghazi, who was giving a presentation based on the intelligence she had received…is outrageous.” more

Karl Rove Super PAC: The Non-Producers

Karl Rove is a co-founder of American Crossroads, a conservative-based super PAC. American Crossroads spent a total of $104.7 million during the general election. Of that money spent, 1.29-percent was spent successfully through the support of Mark Amodei in a House race in Nevada’s second district. The remainder was spent opposing winning candidates, including Barack Obama. Amodei was the only winner on Tuesday supported by the Rove super PAC.

Karl Rove criticized President Obama’s campaign tactics by claiming he “suppressed votes.” Rove’s logic is that the slew of negative advertising directed at Governor Romney pushed voters to not vote for him. Suffice it to say, the Romney campaign is equally guilty of heavy negative advertising.

It’s hard to tell if the large amount of money spent on Republican campaigning kept races close or failed to move votes in their favor. Perhaps the electorate is moved by the demeanor of a few party members that cause emotional stirs against them. Members within the Republican party are calling for change in their message and how to interact with voters.

American Crossroads and the affiliated Crossroads GPS raised around $300 million for the entire election cycle. The overall result of the 2012 election leaves Republican donors unhappy, considering the incompetent “return on investment.” The party’s notable figures aren’t sweeping the issue of wasted money under the rug.

Party members may be more careful of insensitivity in comments considering both Todd Akin and Richard Murdoch lost their elections in generally Republican regions. The results could be a factor in the party shifting it’s approach to voters in future contests. Consultants may be subject to a higher level of scrutiny in the future when negative ads and generic messages of prosperity don’t resonate with voters. more
