Say you want a revolution....

I've been following the Occupy Wall Street movement the past couple days, feeling very encouraged and hopeful. Has the revolution we've all been waiting for begun? One of my favorite writers seems to think so. A brief excerpt from Les Visible's latest over at Reflections in a Petri Dish:
The slow motion movement of long awaited change has been excruciating for all of us who have been waiting upon it for so long. It is finally here and all of the long time coming shifts are about to shift. Within the days of one week, leading to another, the whole world is going to change and it couldn’t come soon enough for me and the rest of you.
And let's not get thrown off by the word "revolution".  We are witnessing an awakening of human consciousness. Certainly not everyone is on the same page about everything and all subjects. But I think most people paying attention know they are being robbed, lied to, cheated, and otherwise defrauded in virtually every way conceivable.

Let's just recap some of the major events of the past decade or so.

George Bush steals an election. Israel and her colony, the Zionist-Occupied States of America, stage a false flag/psyop on 9/11. Criminal wars of aggression based on absurd lies are launched by Israel's colonies in the West against the entire Islamic world in the Middle East and Southwest Asia. Extremely brutal, and often lethal, torture methods are systematically instituted throughout the U.S. military and intelligence community. Criminal bankers completely wreck the U.S. and world economy, which finally exploded in the fall of 2008, and continues to sputter along. Israel's control over the U.S. government and media reaches an all time high, and is thoroughly documented by mainstream political scientists. Investigations into these matters turn up millions of pieces of evidence suggesting government complicity and coverup. Democrats and Republicans are clearly puppets of the criminals causing the problems.

What to do about it?

Occupy Wall Street Spreads to San Diego October 7

SAN DIEGO- Occupy San Diego is standing in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street in NYC, and will begin a peaceful civil disobedience protest of the global financial corruption currently invading politics, media and corporations, by occupying an open space in the Gaslamp District indefinitely starting on October 7, 2011 at 4:30 pm.

We will peacefully and permanently occupy a space until a list of our demands, that will be in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street in NYC, are met by the City and County of San Diego, and by the Federal Government.

The long term and overnight occupation will include marching, teach-ins, sit-ins, break out groups and vigils for Troy Davis, a young, black man on death row, recently put to death by the state of Georgia.

We will also be reaching out to existing political activist groups and labor unions in the San Diego community to stand in solidarity with us.

Since San Diego is one of many hubs of military activity in our country, we will stand in solidarity with the American troops, who are pawns of the system, and a part of the 99% of the American people, manipulated by Wall Street and the 1%. A very large number of veterans in San Diego, and around the country, remain unemployed after returning from service in current wars, and they are encouraged to join our occupation demonstration.

Occupy San Diego will begin holding General Assembly meetings in preparation for this demonstration beginning September 27 at 6pm at the Martin Luther King Promenade Park across from the Convention Center Trolley Station, located at 5th Ave. at N Harbor Drive in downtown San Diego. Meetings will commence here daily until the permanent occupation on October 7.

About Occupy San Diego:

Only 1% of people in this country own and control a majority of the wealth, and this power has invaded into all aspects of our life - politics, media and corporations. We are the 99% and we will be quiet about this inequality no longer. We will take back for the people, what already belongs to the people - our country.

Sweet!  Can't wait to get started!  

A few things I wanted to address regarding this occupation beginning October 7th:
  1. SIGNS!  We need good signs.  I think it will be important to have a few signs saying something along the lines of "We The People Will Not Tolerate Police Brutality" and "We The People Will Not Tolerate Censorship".  We are not here to cause trouble.  We are here to tell everyone: we will not tolerate the traitors, criminals, fascists, sell outs, pedophiles and other sick motherfuckers controlling our government, media/entertainment, and banking system any longer.  
  2. NONVIOLENCE!  Duh!  
  3. VIDEO AND PHOTOS!  We need video and photos uploaded directly to the internet (Facebook, blogs, YouTube, WhatReallyHappened.com, ect.) as soon as possible.  Something to think about...
  4. BE AWARE OF AGENT PROVOCATEURS!  The FBI and other law enforcement agencies have a history of operating in this arena.  Just take a look at what happened to We Are Change Fresno recently.  Enough said. 

I called into Rivero's show today to discuss Occupy San Diego, Occupy Wall Street, and related issues. I'm on at the 46 minute, 45 second mark.

This is only appropriate.

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
all right, all right

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can
But when you want money
for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
all right, all right

ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
all right, all right
all right, all right, all right
all right, all right, all right


  1. Good job John.
    Stay safe and know many are behind this movement,the time HAS come.

    love Reenie

  2. While I applaud the enthusiasm and courage of these fellow patriots, what we really need is an honest, non-Jewish involved military coup. Basically, American citizens are defenseless and powerless unless millions upon millions amass together and say enough is enough, yet that is what the US govt powers want to install martial law. It will take military action to remove these criminals from office, imprison them and then place them on trial for crimes against Americans and humanity in general if we can obtain honest judges willing to do their patriotic duty and defend Americans. As the daughter of an esteemed highly decorated Master Gunnery Sgt. I know what I'm talking about. But maybe that's just a pipe dream. God speed, my friend. Glad I found your blog.

  3. Ahh John Lennon. Reading this reminded me of the little snippet that added to my dislike of Lennon hehe. Did you know this wonderful great revolutionary used to vote Conservative!!??

    Umm hang on ... the aristocratic, money for the upperclasses and sod the working man party?? Lennon??

    Hmmm ... its a funny old world isn't it?

  4. schtick-
    Good old Lennon disinformation!
    This so-called "news" about John Lennon being a conservative comes from none other than Fred Seaman, a discredited fraud. A man convicted of stealing Lennon's diaries, recording equipment, musical equipment, etc. The co-created of "Project Walrus" meant to discredit Yoko Ono and revise Lennon's history by rewriting his diaries. Thought you all liked to know.

  5. Hi Whitewraithe, thanks for finding me and dropping me a line, I appreciate the kind words.

    I agree with much of what you said. I just went to the Occupy San Diego General Assembly meeting tonight, which is basically a working group of activists working with others in different cities to organize these protests/occupations. They're getting their shit together for the most part, a potential revolution in the making. I'll let them do the organizing and figuring out where we're going to do the occupation. I'm more concerned about the message and demands we are asking from the criminal government. We were actually talking tonight about the City Council meetings, and how San Diego residents can speak on camera to a live audience about whatever they want. This could be a big time opportunity to speak some truthful words about a number of important subjects to a lot of people. We'll see how things develop.

    I've been thinking some sort of military intervention may be the only option at this point, but that would be assuming we have honest, decent men and women controlling the military. I think there are some, but certainly not all.

    Onwards we march.

  6. The Beatles and Lennon are the shit anyway you look at the situation. Come on now!

  7. Thanks for that Rod. I never knew that at all. Another one of my silly little prejudices bites the dust lol.

    Still don't like Lennon though hehe. Imagine still gives me the heebiegeebies, as does Woman ... as does ... God he wrote some awful stuff.

    Mind you I don't like a lot of classic mainstream stuff, anyway. Dylan? Blearrghh ... Elton John ... you have got to be joking. Led Zep ... oh my god ... put that chest away man, and stop quacking like a duck. Hendrix. Nice bloke apparently. Really awful guitarist though. Nick Drake was far better and never had to call on gimmicks to show how great an acoustic guitarist he was ...

    [yes I'm a musical snob hehe]

    Anyway back to Lennon. I actually prefered Yoko looking at it all now. Very strange woman though and possibly as mad as a bag of snakes.

    All in all ... music never changes anything, anyway. Look to the Vietnam era. Did anything change when all the Vietnam protest songs came out in the US? Nope. What about punk in the UK? ... nope.

    Music never changes a bloomin thing.

    Actually though a thought just came to mind ... that music does actually affect certain aspects in the culture around us whether we like it or not, and they're usually at the lower end of the scale of things.

    Look at rap. Look at all those fools walking around with baseball caps on their heads pointing in the wrong direction, trousers around their ankles (and these are just the white kids).

    And what about the young girls following their idols like Rihanna, Lady Gaga etc ... god ... what you see walking around the streets nowadays would have had you arrest just for looking at them 10 years ago. Now its an everyday thing.

    We really do live in strange times.

    Best wishes

    Harvey P.

    ps yeah I don't mind the Beatles though (except the truly early stuff where they're just redoing other people's material). Not half as good as the Velvet Underground though hehe ... but not bad :)

    [saw the very first reformed Velvet's gig in Edinburgh in 1993, I think it was ... boy what a night. Astonishing, strange, funny and sad all at the same time. One of those nights you truly never forget. A truly historical occasion I think.]

    pps and I've just learned that Israel is going to carry on and probably expand their settlers programme. Oh goodie. No agenda there then. They really want peace don't they? Bastards ...
