Update: #OWS William Jennings Bryan & Third Eye Blind & Obama Crowned Himself on New Year's Eve | War Is A Crime .org

Time for the people the 99% to defy the 1% and their enablers, toadies and quislings.
Because the politicians  and the bureaucracy are controlled by the rich and powerful voting in a so-called democratic election  is a sham since the majority of those in office have been corrupted. They no longer work for the people but for their own narrow self-serving agenda.
"We do not come as aggressors. Our war is not a war of conquest. We are fighting in the defense of our homes, our families, and posterity. We have petitioned, and our petitions have been scorned. We have entreated, and our entreaties have been disregarded. We have begged, and they have mocked when our calamity came.
We beg no longer; we entreat no more; we petition no more. We defy them!
The gentleman from Wisconsin has said he fears a Robespierre. My friend, in this land of the free you need fear no tyrant who will spring up from among the people. What we need is an Andrew Jackson to stand as Jackson stood, against the encroachments of aggregated wealth.""

Quote from William Jennings Bryan's Cross of Gold speech at 1896 Democratic Convention


Third Eye Blind- If There Ever Was A Time

New year's celebration at Zuccotti Park just another excuse for police to harass and arrest protesters.
Obama Regime silent about police harassment and brutality even though President Obam has sworn to defend the American Constitution and Bill of Rights he refuses to do so as he is too busy handing out money to the 1% in anticipation of re-election or his next career move as a political analyst for the media possibly Fox News ???

My own eye witness account as a occupier at New Years describing briefly my experience in NY.

President Obama following the precedents of the Bush/Cheney Regime is continuing to expand the powers of the executive making America less of a democracy than it was.

Obama betrayed not just the American electorate but also those outside America who also bought into his bogus campaign of hope and peace and justice.
Since coming into office he has doubled down as The Commander in Chief War President for all his talk about empathy and justice he has shown little concern for those innocents who have been killed by US and NATO forces. Obama is another president who has bought into the myth of American Exceptionalism that America can do no wrong.
After devastating Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya he now plans to take on Iran and /or Syria.
The White House and Pentagon have unleashed a daily barrage of of half-truths , lies, fabrications ,misinformation in its propaganda war against Iran in the same way Bush and the Pentagon and the Media sold the Iraq war to the American people and to the world.
And once again for his purposes he has helped change the whole history and narrative of the invasion and eight year occupation of Iraq by claiming the there was no occupation and that America accomplished its mission in destroying the sovereign nation of Iraq.
And what is appalling is that Obama's supporters are in denial about Obama's actions .
His supporters should get over their obsession and join the Occupy Movement and the anti-war movement and those who still believe in and social Justice.
Part of the problem for Obama is that he oversold his message of hope and change so that since he refuses to act upon his pledges to the people it is therefore the people 's not just their right but their duty to demand that he keep his promises . Instead Obama is more concerned with pleasing the Hawks and the lobbyists and Wall Street and the Pentagon and the 1% as he daily sells out and betrays the 99%.
If Obama believed in justice and the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights etc. he would have come down hard on the cities which used unnecessary and even illegal tactics and excessive force by people in the Occupy Wall Street Movement who like the peoples in Egypt , Tunisia , Bahrain, Iran etc.are peacefully protesting to bring about reform which includes stopping police brutality and political and economic corruption as well as doing more for the majority than it does for the top 1%.

These were among the complaints registered the last time this nation had a king:

"He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
"He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
"He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
"He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
"He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
"He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
"He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
"For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
"For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
"For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
"For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
"He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation."

To prevent the U.S. government from behaving like a king, the drafters of the U.S. Constitution empowered an elected legislature to write every law, to declare every war, and to remove its executive from office. To further prevent the abuse of individuals' rights, those authors wrote into the Constitution, even prior to the Bill of Rights, the right to habeas corpus and the right never to be punished for treason unless convicted in an open court on the testimony of at least two witnesses to an overt act of war or assistance of an enemy.

President Barack Obama waited until New Year's Eve to take an action that I suspect he wanted his willfully deluded followers to have a good excuse not to notice. On that day, Obama issued an unconstitutional signing statement rewriting a law as he signed it into law, a practice that candidate Obama had rightly condemned. The law that Obama was signing was the most direct assault yet seen on the basic structure of self-governance and human rights that once made all the endless U.S. shouting of "We're number one!" significantly less ludicrous. The National Defense Authorization Act is not a leap from democracy to tyranny, but it is another major step on a steady and accelerating decade-long march toward a police-and-war state.

President Obama has claimed the power to imprison people without a trial since his earliest months in office. He spoke in front of the Constitution in the National Archives while gutting our founding document in 2009. President Obama has claimed the power to torture "if needed," issued an executive order claiming the power of imprisonment without trial, exercised that power on a massive scale at Bagram, and claimed and exercised the power to assassinate U.S. citizens. Obama routinely kills people with unmanned drones
