Los Angeles Offers To Give Occupiers Free Office Space, Housing And Farmland


(LA Times) — Los Angeles officials have offered Occupy L.A. protesters a package of incentives that includes downtown office space and farmland in an attempt to persuade them to abandon their camp outside of City Hall, according to several demonstrators who have been in negotiations with the city.

The details of the proposal were revealed Monday during the demonstration’s nightly general assembly meeting by Jim Lafferty, an attorney with the National Lawyers Guild who has been advocating on behalf of the protest since it began seven weeks ago.

Lafferty said city officials have offered protesters a $1-a-year lease on a 10,000-square-foot office space near City Hall. He said officials also promised land elsewhere for protesters who wish to farm, as well as additional housing for the contingent of homeless people who joined the camp.

A spokesman for the mayor would not comment on the proposal, saying only: “We are in negotiations with organizers of Occupy L.A.”

    This I wish to see. I want to see these city shits farm. I want to see them sweat a little. I want to see them try to figure things out, and, when they can't, I'll offer to become farm manager......for a fee. Or a crop share.

  6. The Bush/Obama foreign policies remain constant.

    Iran's finances not really applicable to sanction.

    The US funding Whirled Bank operations, while that bank funded Iranian infrastructure projects.

    We should sanction Iran's Central Bank, but our elected leaders, for the past 11 years, seem to feel that would be counter to US interests, long term.

    We had low pay and no GI Bill to subsidize post service education.

    That post Vietnam era, when military personnel were held in disfavor, by the public at large.

    Exemplified by the lack of support offered to the troops. As witnessed at Desert 1.

  34. Well, boobie, from the Times of London, May 1917:

    Lord Rothschild wrote: ...
    "We Zionists have always felt that if Palestine is to be colonized by the Jews, some machinery must be set up to receive the immigrants, settle them on the land and develop the land, and to be generally a directing agency. ...


    The history of the Balfour Declaration is one of Anglo/Europeon expansion into the Ottoman Empire.

  36. For further evidence, we call in evidence remarks made ...


    ns on 4 July 1922, Winston Churchill asked rhetorically,

    Are we to keep our pledge to the Zionists made in 1917...? Pledges and promises were made during the war, and they were made, not only on the merits, though I think the merits are considerable.

    They were made because it was considered they would be of value to us in our struggle to win the war. It was considered that the support which the Jews could give us all over the world, and particularly in the United States, and also in Russia, would be a definite palpable advantage.

    I was not responsible at that time for the giving of those pledges, nor for the conduct of the war of which they were, when given, an integral part. But like other members I supported the policy of the War Cabinet. Like other members, I accepted and was proud to accept a share in those great transactions, which left us with terrible losses, with formidable obligations, but nevertheless with unchallengeable victory.

    Yeah, that is why they torpedoed the Weizmann- Feisal Hussein joint Arab-Jewish agreement on a Jewish Homeland (January 3, 1918), and then closed off Jewish immigration to Israel.

    Most of the Jews in Israel at that time were already there during the Turkish occupation of that land.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Not a payoff to the Turks, mat, who were on the "other" side, during WWI.

    The payoff was the acceptance of Zionist principles in Palestine, as outlined in the Balfour Declaration, to the banking interests represented by Lord Rothschild, in London, Russia and the United States.

    As spoken to by Mr Churchill, in the House of Commons, 1917.

    "America supplies them with the money to buy those rockets. And then it used its MSM propaganda outlets to castigate Israel for defending itself, while at the same time it slices and dices Israel into smaller and smaller parts. "

    I'm curious as to what smaller and smaller pieces America is slicing Israel into? Israel has gotten bigger since the 1948 borders were established...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Further depositions are called to be read:

    In a memorandum marked in his own handwriting "Private & Confidential" to Lord Peel and other members of the Royal Commission on Palestine in 1936, James Malcolm wrote:
    ...
    As I have already said, I had a part in initiating the negotiations in the early autumn of 1916 between the British and French Governments and the Zionist leaders, which led to the Balfour Declaration and the British Mandate for Palestine.

    The first object, of course, was to enlist the very considerable and necessary influence of the Jews, and especially of the Zionist or Nationalist Jews, to help us bring America into the War at the most critical period of the hostilities. This was publicly acknowledged by Mr. Lloyd George during a recent debate in the House of Commons.


    The Zionists part of the Anglo/US plot, at least from a historical perspective.

    The Anglo/French divided up the Ottoman's interests in the Levant, and had promised the Zionists they could colonize it.

    Which, after a fashion, the Zionists certainly did.

    ReplyDelete
  41. There was a tremendous amount of anti-colonial feeling, amongst the People residing in Palestine.

    Much like Bush and Obama, and the continuation of policies after a change of administrators.

    The British were faced with the unpopularity of Zionist ideals amongst the existing residents of Palestine.

    Thus they played both sides, while as exemplified by Leon Uris in his novel Exodus, allowed illegal immigration to continue apace.

    As the US does, today, with regards its official immigration law and actual policy on the ground.

    That being part of the ruthlessness that allows such a small minority to control such vast resources, both economic and military.

    ReplyDelete
  46. As of January 2011, foreigners owned $4.45 trillion of U.S. debt, or approximately 47% of the debt held by the public of $9.49 trillion


    The largest holders were the central banks of China, Japan, the United Kingdom and Brazil.[55]

    As of May 2011 the largest single holder of U.S. government debt was China, with 26 percent of all foreign-held U.S. Treasury securities (8% of total US public debt)

    26% of $4.45 trillion
    ... $1.05 trillion ...


    China has a population of:
    1,336,718,015 (July 2011 est.)

    With an economy generating a GDP:
    $10.09 trillion (2010 est.)

    Or a per capita rate of:
    $7,600 (2010 est.).


    The Chinese have lent the US government about 36 days worth of their economic production.

    Plus whatever commercial lending the Chinese have been doing that's been denominated in USD.

    The British closed off Jewish immigration to Israel, and they placed an arms embargo on the Jews. Arabs were freely allowed to the area from all over: Syria Turkey Egypt Sudan Iraq etc. Arabs also had no problems receiving arms from the Anglos. From modern spitfire fighter planes to tanks.

    The Anglos intended to set up the Jews for another Holocaust in Israel. Just like they did earlier in Europe, by funding and arming Hitler and the Nazis.

    Israel was founded in 1948 and was on military aggression in concert with British and French troops in Eygpt, in 1956.

    There are no borders of 1948. What there is, is an armistice line established at the expense of the Jews who were basically deprived of any substantive weapons to defend themselves against an onslaught of multiple invading armies supplied by the anglos. These armies managed to carve 80% of designated "Palestine" to themselves.

    What is today Jordan, the PA areas, and Israel, were all designated as "Palestine" --the national homeland of the Jews. There were international agreements to this effect, signed by both parties. Agreements which were deliberately torpedoed by the Anglos. Today, Jordan and the PA areas are designated Judenrein territories. This is mainly enforced by the US through a diplomatic stranglehold on Israel. Furthermore, the US forcibly stripped Israel of the Sinai, twice!, a territory belonging to Israel after it was won from Egyptian occupation. It intends to do the same with the Golan.

  80. After a series of elections in which politicians touted their party purity, a smattering of 2012 candidates are trying to sell voters on their willingness to make deals. That may play better now, after such a high-stakes failure.

    Even if one party was sufficiently successful at the polls in 2012 to force its ideas into law, Washington insiders know that even that would not be the end of it.

    “Sure, we’ll cut and we’ll cut and we’ll cut,” said Rep. Thomas J. Rooney (R-Fla.), imagining a total GOP victory in 2012. “And the Democrats will start to run against it right away.”

Over the past nine months, however, the generals have tried thousands of civilians in military courts and have expanded the use of a despised emergency law that gives the government sweeping powers to detain people.

    ...

    In an apparent nod to protesters, the military announced a new “treachery” law Monday to stop former members of Mubarak’s National Democratic Party from running in the parliamentary elections. But the law, which activists said was too little, too late, would apply only to those convicted of political corruption.

    The military council also said it has ordered an investigation into the causes of the clashes and would take legal action “against anyone who is proven to have been involved in the events.”

  84. It’s also worth noting that a lack of context in a campaign ad is nothing new. Just last week, in fact, GOP candidates including Romney mischaracterized Obama’s quote about how America had been “lazy” about attracting foreign investment, by suggesting that Obama was calling all Americans “lazy”. (Texas Gov. Rick Perry even ran an ad based on this premise).

    And the furor over that lasted all of two seconds.

    None of this is to say that this strategy is genius or that it will wind up being a net positive for Romney; there is a price to pay if Romney’s campaign is seen as dishonest. But at the very least, it’s moving the debate in a direction the Romney campaign wanted — him versus Obama on the economy — for a mere $134,000.

    IT IS a conspiracy


    I assume the capitals mean you are really really serious.

    From Wiki,

    Paranoid personality disorder is a psychiatric diagnosis characterized by paranoia and a pervasive, long-standing suspiciousness and generalized mistrust of others.

    Those with the condition are hypersensitive, are easily slighted, and habitually relate to the world by vigilant scanning of the environment for clues or suggestions to validate their prejudicial ideas or biases. Paranoid individuals are eager observers. They think they are in danger and look for signs and threats of that danger, disregarding any facts.[1] They tend to be guarded and suspicious and have quite constricted emotional lives. Their incapacity for meaningful emotional involvement and the general pattern of isolated withdrawal often lend a quality of schizoid isolation to their life experience.[2] Simply put, people with this particular disorder have a tendency to bear grudges, suspiciousness, tendency to interpret others actions as hostile, persistent tendency to self-reference, and a tenacious sense of personal right. [3]


    From that standpoint Mats, you fit right in here with all the rest of us posters at the old EB.

    However, I would also have to add delusions of granduer to the old diagnosis. You seem to think the entire world, including the U.S., the U.N., the rest of the world or at least most of the countries in the West, the CIA, the well-known massive banking conspracy, the "corporations, the Pope (and one assumes) Catholics, and we can't of course leave out Islam, the CFR, the Trilaterals, etc., etc., literally billions of people, actually give a shit, no are actually actively conspiring against you and Israel.

    Do you really think you deserve that much attention Mats?

    Come on Doug. Let's not go crazy.

    Touts?

    I said nothing for or against the quality of the stories only that if anyone is looking for stories on the Copts, it isn't that hard to find them.

    I do apologize for my comment on Palyland, however. Since Mats comments were in a rather sarcastic vein, the first thing I assumed he meant was the MSM was obsessed with Palin. From his subsequent post I guess he meant the Palis.

    Therefore, I retract my statement that that subject sells.

    The Vatican, they don't give a shit about Catholics. That should be very plain and obvious. Just like the Corporations don't give a shit about those who work for them. As George Carlin very aptly said: It's a club of owners, and we aint in it.

    The former Illinois governor, who was forced out of office in 2009, faces a maximum sentence of 300 years in prison. However, legal experts and prosecutors estimate he will get between 10 and 30 years in prison, according to the Sun-Times.

    His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 6. Blagojevich's lawyers plan to fight for probation.

    Occupy Detroit!!!


    As usual bobbo, you come up a day late and a dollar short.

    Occupy Detroit is moving into warehouse space donated to them. Occupy Detroit did it the right way. They got a permit to occupy Grand Circus Park. When there permit was running out, they started packing their stuff and cleaning up the park. However, because they were offered the private space, they went to City Council and asked for a two week extension on the permit.

    The Council granted an extra day while they deliberated then gave them a week extension. They didn't give them the second week because it would have interferred with the Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    Everyone seems fairly happy with the way things are going so far.

    As for turning vacant land into farmland, it was one proposals Mr. Bing offered up when he took office. Detroit has about 800,000 people. When Coleman Young was mayor there were almost twice as many people.

    Services need to be consolidated. They still have a buraeucracy large enough for the previous population.

    The problem is the bad areas are concentrated around the city core
    the same area you would like to consolidate services. It would be nice if the vacant land was concentrated in a couple areas rather than all over the city.

    Right, but rather than seeing them as what they, a bunch of dicks trying to dip their beaks and using money, power, and influence to do it, you view them as a bunch of elite frat brothers who get together every so often to have a drink, light a Beltane fire, and plot the overthrow of Israel and the Jews.



    I am the beholder. You people are thieves, murderers, and scoundrels of the highest order. You will be shunned and vomited out of existence.


    The 'beholder' eh? Well I don't know if that really stacks up to that guy from Idaho who is the reincarnation of Christ.

    You people? Typical conspiracist. Have to have an "Other" to blame.

    If you actually read this blog on a regular basis, you'd know that most here have complained about the same things you do. However, most here don't lump all the dicks into a single group, at least not a really small group.

    There is of course the Look out for Number One fraternity of dicks. But that's a pretty large group.

    Since we no longer allow slavery, corporations exist on the basis of free men exchanging the value of their time and talent for money and other benefits. You seem to be saying that money and benefits are a "right" rather than recompense in kind. Another classic leftist trope.

    You didn't answer my question(s) because you know the answers will make you look foolish.

    Now, to your slavery argument. True, we no longer have overt slavery as an institution, but we have something very similar and just as insidious. It's called inflation and debt peonage. Because of rampant debasing of the currency and the rapid devaluation of savings and purchasing power, people are forced into debt just to keep above water. Economic distress caused by inflation and debt, forces people into jobs that normally they would have shunned. Jobs like working for the US military.

    There's another factor at play here. The big corporations get free money from the central banks, they then can buy up other businesses, the competition. The big corporations also use advantageous regulations that they submit to the gov mafia to enforce put other businesses out of business.

    So you see, for most people there's no way out. You either work for the big corporations and gov mafia, or you're out on the street, or you're collecting welfare, i.e., collecting a bribe not to riot and burn the whole system down.

    Speaking of corporations, Romney said, "Corporations are people..."

    As I recall, the discussion was about taxes. Presumably, he was arguing that corporations shouldn't be taxed because you are actually taxing the people who make up the corporation.

    This has been the argument from conservative economists right along, that if in fact we do away with corporate taxes, FICA, etc., that money will find its way into the paychecks of the workers.

    The pollyanish prattling of the trickle-down economists. We have seen what actually happens over the past three years.

    Things get tight, the corporations cut heads and merely ask those left behind to do more. Likewise, there is no real reason to pay those people more when there are five unemployed people for every job that opens up. Why pay them more.

    The same would happen with the taxes that wouldn't be collected. The corporations are sitting on a couple $ trillion in profits right now. However, it never hurts to have a bit more.

    Likewise, any tax relief for the repatriation of funds from overseas would find it's way into the corporate vaults, either that or to buy back stock.

    Resolution 181

    Philippines: In the days before the vote, the Philippines' representative General Carlos P. Romulo stated "We hold that the issue is primarily moral. The issue is whether the United Nations should accept responsibility for the enforcement of a policy which is clearly repugnant to the valid nationalist aspirations of the people of Palestine. The Philippines Government holds that the United Nations ought not to accept such responsibility". After a phone call from Washington, the representative was recalled and the Philippines' vote changed.[49] - wikipedia
