Wall Street Secret Plans to Destroy Middle Class and Occupy movement!

In EYE ON CITRUS, EYEONCITRUS.COM, Wall Street Secret Plans to Destory Middle Class on kp35 at 301122

Leaked Memo

It laid out a very specific plan to save Republican election candidates from losing this November because of their ties to big banks, as well as recapture the White House. How will they do it? By using a dirty tricks campaign to destroy the Occupy Wall Street movement within 60 days. Here’s how.

The 4-page memo is from the PR firm Clark, Lytle, Geduldig & Cranford and addressed to one of its clients – the American Banking Association. To give a little insight into CLGC, the second ‘C’ in CLGC is for Jay Cranford. As recently as six months ago, Mr. Cranford served as an aide to Republican House Speaker John Boehner before becoming a partner at CLGC. Aside from connections to the most powerful member of the Republican Party, the firm’s client list is a virtual who’s who of America’s Fortune 100. They include such powerhouses as:

  • American Insurance Association
  • American Banking Association



With a client line-up like that, its’ no wonder Clark, Lytle, Geduldig & Cranford offered to single-handedly destroy the Occupy Wall Street movement. Their plan of action assured it could be at least partially complete within 60 days. Their price – $850,000.

Why

image Why do they want to discredit and destroy the Occupy Wall Street Movement? The following excepts from the CLGC Memo explain:

“Leading Democratic party strategists have begun to openly discuss the benefits of embracing growing and increasingly organized Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement to prevent Republican gains in Congress and the White House next year…This would mean more than just short-term political discomfort for Wall Street firms. If vilifying the leading companies of this sector is allowed to become an unchallenged centerpiece of a coordinated Democratic campaign, it has the potential to have very long-lasting political, policy and financial impacts on the companies in the center of the bullseye.”

The political experts at CLGC then go on to make their most fearsome prediction – not only will Democrats embrace the Occupy movement and condemn Wall Street, Republicans will too. The memo states:

“The bigger concern should be that Republicans will no longer defend Wall Street companies – and might start running against them too.”

The memo goes on to warn that Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party have the exact same goals. It’s only the firms like CLGC that continue to use their hired pundits in the mainstream media to pit the two sides against each other. The memo insists:

“OWS protesters and the Tea Party overlap on angered populism…This combination has the potential to be explosive later in the year when media reports cover the next round of bonuses and contrast it with stories of millions of Americans making do with less this holiday season.”

Score one for the good guys. In an attempt to incite fear in their clients, the memo credits the “rag-tag group of protesters” with being, “an organized competitor who is very nimble and capable of working the media, coordinating third party support and engaging office holders to do their bidding.”



How

The above section explained in the firm’s own words why they want to destroy the Occupy Wall Street movement. Below, we quote excerpts from the CLGC firm’s memo detailing how they’re going to do it.

Basically, their plan of attack is broken up into (5) covert tactics:

1. Survey Research

The first step in their strategy is to survey the people whose opinions they’re going to try and sway – “women, seniors, suburban voters, GOP and Tea Party”. The surveys will include one large, national survey and eight local surveys in key swing states. Those targeted states are “Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wisconsin, Ohio, North Carolina, Nevada and New Mexico”.

2. Opposition Research

Once they have defined who ‘their people’ are, they will use the survey to find out their people’s greatest dislikes about the Occupy movement demonstrators. Once a rough character profile is created, the stated goal is to infiltrate the Occupy demonstrations and find the most offensive and embarrassing protesters to saturate the local media with. With many news outlets owned by some of CLGC’s very own clients and their corporate partners, enlisting the support of corporate media is a given.

The key objectives of CLGC’s ‘opposition research’ tactic is to find out exactly who they’re up against. The memo echoes a widely circulating rumor that George Soros is funding the entire Occupy cause. Regardless, the banking and insurance PR firm suggests exposing whoever truly is funding the movement. Doing so, they suggest, will cancel out their grassroots beginning and “show they have the same cynical motivation as a political opponent”. The memo insists doing so, “will undermine their credibility in a profound way. A key strategic goal will ultimately be to show any evidence of fraud on the other side.” READ MORE HERE…..

Stand with Occupy Wall Street

In EYE ON CITRUS, EYEONCITRUS.COM, NATION, STAND WITH OCCUPY WALL STREET on kp23 at 311105

Below is a email that CREDO sent to us, EyeOnCitrus.Com. We firmly support the people who are demonstrating against the Corporate greed of the major financial conglomerates that control the Nation along with the military-industrial complex. Please sign the petition.

Not a single banker has gone to jail for crimes that lead to the financial meltdown. But now over 1,000 protesters have been arrested in the inspiring Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City.
The occupation of Wall Street has inspired a nationwide movement in the spirit of Wisconsin.
But there has been a powerful backlash against peaceful protesters who are using both their right to public assembly and tactics of nonviolent civil disobedience to call attention to the fact that our government has bailed out the wealthiest Americans but has done little to help middle and working class Americans who have lost their jobs and had their homes foreclosed on.
The protest is building momentum with a huge solidarity march today that CREDO members, progressive organizations and labor are joining. However the very existence of Occupy Wall Street could be endangered by strong-arm NYPD tactics aimed at intimidating protesters and ending their three week stand against the big Wall Street banks.
We urge Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly to respect the Occupy Wall Street protesters’ constitutional right to peaceful assembly. You can, too, at the link below.http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/ows_2/?r_by=-312311-o79nO7x&rc=paste1

WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS/LETTER TO EDITOR

In EOC EYEONCITRUS.COM, EYE ON CITRUS, WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS on kp51 at 301123

The Nation

Dear Friend of The Nation:

imageWhatever the outcome of the high-stakes battle over the debt ceiling and budget, we’re at a turning point in the shape and contour of American politics.

Nation columnist Eric Alterman, warning of a new "class war," commented that "conservatives, having shifted the tax burden from the rich to the rest of us, now seek to use state financial difficulties to destroy public unions."

With mainstream press coverage "led by the nose" to cover public employee union stories through a narrow "either-or prism," where can you turn?

Turn to the American magazine that has been fighting for workers every week since 1865.

The Nation is the most independent, strong-voiced champion of middle-class working families–including public employees–in the country. We are not owned by GE, Comcast, Disney, Murdoch or Time Warner.

We are reader supported.

Please join the fight.

John Nichols, reporting from Wisconsin, found the strongest defense of public services and public workers has come from National Nurses United. Among Rose Ann DeMoro’s list of the things "all working families should know," Nation readers learned that:

  • Banks, speculators, mortgage lenders and global corporations caused the economic crisis;
  • 2010 third-quarter corporate profits of $1.6 trillion represented the biggest one-year jump in history;
  • State and local workers typically earn 11-12 percent less than private employees with comparable education and experience.
  • Union victories like the eight-hour workday and weekends off are now threatened with the three-decade-long attack on unions spurred by right-wing icon Ronald Reagan;
  • Increased wages and guaranteed pensions put money into the economy, with a ripple effect that creates jobs and improves the economy for all.

In this economic downturn, New Jersey’s governor is bullying middle-class public employees and teachers; Indiana Republicans propose "right-to-work" legislation; Congressional Republicans, under the pretense of fiscal austerity, voted to slash the EPA, the Securities and Exchange Commission and consumer financial protection. Clearly, conservatives are exploiting the perverse desire of some victims of this economic downturn to see public employees suffer to the same degree.image

But Nation Editor and Publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel hit the nail on the head: "Such coordinated and well-funded union-busting has more to do with power and the future of basic democratic rights than with balancing state budgets."

This is a fight we can’t afford to lose. Please join us.
Sincerely,
Teresa Stack

ACTION ALERT-Letter to Editor

In citrus county florida, ethical violations, EYEONCITRUS.COM, FCC, lobbyist for Comcast, Meredith Attwell Baker, Revolving Door on kp51 at 311120

Free Press Action Fund: Action Alert

Stop the Revolving Door!

Outrageous!

FCC Commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker is leaving the FCC to become a lobbyist for Comcast – just four months after she voted to approve the Comcast-NBC merger.1

This is just the latest – but perhaps most blatant — example of so-called "public servants" cashing in on companies they are supposed to be regulating. But Baker’s jump to Comcast is particularly egregious. As recently as March, the commissioner was giving speeches complaining that the Comcast-NBC deal "took too long."

And you wonder why the American people are disgusted with Washington.

Stop the Revolving Door: Demand Congress Investigate Baker’s Conflict of Interest

Congress is already concerned about how the FCC conducts itself. Rep. Darrell Issa, chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has been making a lot of noise recently about alleged ethical violations at the agency. By signing this letter

to Congressman Issa, you’re urging him to launch an investigation of Commissioner Baker’s seemingly blatant conflict of interest.

Outside of Washington, people of every political stripe have expressed near unanimous contempt for a system of government that favors powerful corporations at the expense of the many. Sadly, the complete capture of government by industry barely raises an eyebrow inside the Beltway anymore. That’s why Congress needs to hear from you.

Urge Congress to Investigate this Conflict of Interest at the FCC

The revolving door at the FCC erodes any prospect for common-sense public policy — such as strong Net Neutrality rules or a rigorous review of mega-deals like AT&T’s proposed takeover of T-Mobile.

Unless we speak out now and demand an investigation, business as usual in Washington will undermine our media system and endanger our democracy.

Thank you for taking action,
