    Meanwhile, the MSM outlets are focused on Cains headwear, Justin Bieber’s love child, and how “stupid” Rick Perry is.

    Thank God for the internet and webblogs like the Gateway Pundit.

    The Occupy ‘movement’ started on September 17th. You might want to look that one up also. Sometimes know as the ‘Black September’ movement. They have a history.

    Google it!

    Note to Republicans: These people ARE NOT ANARCHISTS. THEY ARE LEFTISTS. And they very definitely have a proposal: MORE GOVERNMENT.

    ‘The importance of 11/17 for the Communists behind OWS #N17
    What is the significance behind the date November 17th and why the “Mass Movement to Resist Austerity” on today’s date? What is N17?

    Is this what Obama meant by “help me Fundamentally Transform this nation”?’

    The importance of 11/17 for the Communists behind OWS #N17

    ‘From the mid-1970s until earlier this decade, the domestic Marxist terrorist group November 17 (N17) targeted Greek officials, as well as officials from NATO countries residing in Greece. During that period, five employees of the U.S. Embassy were murdered by N17, which was responsible for 23 killings altogether. Many of the N17 terrorists were apprehended by Greek authorities in 2002 and tried for their crimes. In 2003, Greek courts handed down multiple life sentences to key N17 members. A group appeals trial for the N17 convicts and two previously acquitted individuals opened in December 2005. The appeals trial essentially represented a new trial for the convicts, since the Greek judicial system allows new facts and evidence to be introduced in the appeals phase. The appeals trial lasted far longer than the original trial, in part due to the defense team’s tactics and the court’s decisions allowing defendants great leeway to make statements and interrupt witnesses.

    On May 14, the Athens Court of Appeals issued consolidated sentences in the N17 appeals trial. There were 226 counts of major felonies (murder, attempted murder, attacks with explosives) in the original trial, resulting in convictions on 224 counts. The appeal proceedings involved de novo review of 225 counts (the public prosecutor appealed one acquittal on behalf of the United States). During the appeal proceedings, six counts became time-barred under Greek law. Of the 219 counts remaining, convictions were sustained on 218. The six members of the operational core of N17 received a total of 44 life sentences. Seven members received various prison terms. Six of those originally charged were either acquitted or prosecutions were time-barred under Greek law.’

    Exploitation of the useful idiots by Greek Communist con artists. A word of warning:

    Beware of geeks bearing grifts.
