Occupy Wall Street Protesters - #3338 - Here's the Real Reason Why the Occupy Wall Street Protesters Aren't Getting Kicked Out of Zuccotti Park - Business Insider (2) VIDEO: Politicians Look Past Anti-Semitism at Occupy Wall Street - The Blaze (3) The Tangled Web: Obama Approves Loan for Zuccotti Park Owners - Rush Limbaugh (4) The Hill Poll: Majority Blames Washington, Not Wall Street, for Economic Crisis- Hot Air












Coming on the heels of the Solyndra debacle, the Obama administration has just approved a $168.9 million loan guarantee for the Granite Reliable wind farm project owned by Brookfield Asset Management (BAM). Among its many holdings BAM owns Brookfield Renewable Power, which owns the Granite Reliable and it also owns Brookfield Office Properties, whose holdings include the now famous Zuccotti Park. The Department of Energy finalized the loan guarantee less than a week after Occupy Wall Street protesters took to Zuccotti Park, and with the Obama administration's Tuesday endorsement of the protests, rumors are starting to circulate that this could be the reason Brookfield is allowing protesters to remain on its property.The Granite Reliable Power Project under construction in Coos Bay, New Hampshire is the state's largest wind farm and the New Hampshire Union Leader questions why Brookfield would need federal subsidies at all, particularly following the bankruptcy of Solyndra. Mayor Bloomberg's announcement Monday that protesters could remain as long as they liked, also raised a few eyebrows and it turns out he has a personal connection to Brookfield as well. The mayor's longtime domestic partner Diana Taylor is on the Board of Directors at Brookfield Properties along with John E. Zuccotti himself. Link for original article...... AW: This information is beyond belief, please read this and call your congressman about the $168.9 million loan guarantee for Granite Reliable by Obama, which is owned by Brookfield Asset which owns Zuccotti Park.

Politicians Look Past Anti-Semitism at Occupy Wall Street - The Blaze has covered several instances of anti-Semitism emanating from the Occupy Wall St. movement (despite the organizers’ attempts to trivialize it). And now, the group over at Whyoccupy.com has posted a powerful new web ad from the Emergency Committee for Israel, wondering why, despite the anti-Semitism, so many liberal politicians have come out in support of the movement.  “Why are our leaders turning a blind eye to anti-Semitic, anti-Israel attacks?” it asks:  Please watch, this has received 45,772 views.


The Tangled Web: Obama Approves Loan for Zuccotti Park Owners - Rush Limbaugh .........Well, let me fill you in on the answer to your question, at least as it relates to the Zuccotti Park in New York. This is from the Business Insider, and this is the real reason why they weren't kicked out last Friday. If you recall, they were supposed to be kicked out just so the park could be cleaned and then they would be allowed back in, but they thought it would be the first step of a permanent evacuation, they refused to go, and everybody involved backed down. Now, here's the thing. "Coming on the heels of the Solyndra debacle, the Obama administration has just approved a $168.9 million loan guarantee for the Granite Reliable wind farm project owned by Brookfield Asset Management (BAM). Among its many holdings BAM owns Brookfield Renewable Power, which owns the Granite Reliable and it also owns Brookfield Office Properties, whose holdings include the now famous Zuccotti Park. The Department of Energy finalized the loan guarantee less than a week after Occupy Wall Street protesters took to Zuccotti Park.""Mayor Bloomberg's announcement Monday that protesters could remain as long as they liked, also raised a few eyebrows and it turns out he has a personal connection to Brookfield as well. The mayor's longtime domestic partner Diana Taylor is on the Board of Directors at Brookfield Properties along with John E. Zuccotti himself."  So you wonder why they don't need permits? They don't need permits because the mayor's compromised, the girlfriend's compromised, Obama's compromised, in the middle of all this is a $170 million loan guarantee to Zuccotti's Granite Reliable wind farm project. And the price for that is letting them use Zuccotti Park.  Read more.........

The Hill Poll: Majority Blames Washington, Not Wall Street for Economic Crisis - Hot Air - Does the Occupy Movement reflect mainstream opinion about the problems that led to the financial crisis? According to a poll conducted by The Hill, the protests reflect a distinctly narrow political view. The majority of likely voters blame Washington, not Wall Street, for the financial crisis and recession:  In the minds of likely voters, Washington, not Wall Street, is primarily to blame for the financial crisis and the subsequent recession.  That is the key finding of this week’s The Hill poll, which comes as the national Occupy Wall Street movement — a protest that objects to risky practices and excessive salaries at major banks, along with American income disparities in general — enters its second month.  The movement appears to have struck a chord with progressive voters, but it does not seem to represent the feelings of the wider public.  Read more........
