Occupy Tacoma Events

Nov 3


A police officer told protesters ‘I have the right to kill you’. Little did he know that 10,000+ people are watching him via livestream.

From San Jose Mercury News:

A man and a woman were hit at 11th Street and Broadway by a silver Mercedes, after a male driver ran a red light, said Joe Jackson, 37, of Oakland, who witnessed the incident.

The driver was irritated by protesters walking in front of him.

Onlookers said the driver deliberately ran over the pair, accelerating after a man hit on the hood of the car.

The windshield was splattered with what appeared to be a milkshake.

After the car stopped at the other end of the intersection, the driver switched seats with his female passenger.

About 40 people gathered in the intersection and some pulled open the driver’s door.

The woman inside shouted: “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry!”

The injured man and woman were taken away in ambulances.

Police let the driver go.

So 10,000 people shut down one of the biggest ports in America and the media refuse to cover it. Do people really think media blackout is still a myth?

It’s surprising that a majority of people don’t know that the popular vote does not elect the President.

occupyallstreets:

Basically, we don’t vote for the President!

The government believes the people are not capable of electing the President of The Unites States.

So who votes for the President?

The Electoral Colleges do.

And who nominates the electors?

In some states, the political parties do.

In other states, the people do.

What does this mean?

Electors can thwart the popular vote for a candidate not supported by the voters of their state.

                                                                              

In 2000, Bush Al Gore had 50,999,897  popular votes.

Bush had 50,456,002.

Al Gore would’ve been President if the government trusted us to make our own decisions. 

This makes me wonder, what control do we have over the government?

The number of prescription drug shortages tripled between 2005 and 2010.  Besides having serious consequences for people’s health and well-being,  drug shortages drive vendors to charge outragous prices for drugs that  are normally affordable when in stock. One report found that  price-gouging vendors mark up prices on drugs in short supply by 650  percent, on average.

It’s good to believe in free markets and their efficient nature, but one must also be willing to acknowledge when a lack of regulatory oversight causes inefficient developments.

Beware of Police Infiltrators and Provocateurs!

This video is proof that police have gone undercover as protesters in Occupy Oakland, and possibly other occupation.

If you have any other proof of police infiltrators please report it to us.
