Jim Stone visits Occupy LA
October 31 2011
Since I was displaced by the recent disaster, and live in Southern California, Occupy Los Angeles ended up being an obvious destination.UPDATE: This got raided. When I was there, they had a 20,000 watt solar setup, multiple generators, 8 porta potties, a big screen movie projector, countless laptops, satellite uplinks, and several HDTV's playing political videos. The protest was pro-capitalist, pro-God, anti banker, and anti GMO. It was clean as a whistle. No trash, NOTHING anywhere. So the so-called "trash" the police took out was no doubt, a smashed 20,000 watt solar setup, countless laptops, several generators, a big screen projector and several HDTV's.
This was a well funded, well organized, well run, squeaky clean protest that represented the heartbeat of America and went TOTALLY against what the media has portrayed Occupy Wall Street as being. The simple fact that they said it was all trash proves the lie, and when you look through the pictures "after" the fact you can see, in the "trash" a smashed HDTV.
Interesting it is then, that the smelly hell hole homeless camp, which makes up Occupy DC, which I also visited, is allowed to live. They won't destroy that one, because it projects EXACTLY the image the elite want people to have of this movement. Yuppies with first class setups and a real message HAD TO GO.I went to Occupy LA with an agenda of uncovering infiltrators into the movement who seek to undermine it, and get the real word out - it is a foregone conclusion that the mainstream media would lie about everything. I had enormous success with both things, To start; The "official" representation for Occupy Los Angeles may have been usurped and appears to be intentionally not getting the word out about what the movement actually stands for. I was invited to join the media team but refused after seeing the media tent, which despite having several Macintosh computers and at least 10 windows based laptops as well as innumerable cameras and a full time broadband connection, had failed to output ANY video in three weeks (as of Oct 24) other than a three minute clip from a flip camcorder. This was discussed during a media meeting which I attended on October 24. Many media outlets have stated Occupy Los Angeles has no direction. But after being on site for four days, I can clearly state that there is a strong direction and strong demands are being made, demands which get usurped by the powers that be who are on scene and claim to be part of the movement. One pass through that camp will reveal a powerful resolve and message; a message which has been stifled, and I have proof of that here in photos. The demands are: 1. An end to the banker bailouts and an end to centralized PRIVATE banking (Federal Reserve). This is very closely followed by an end to all forms of corporate welfare and "buying" of electoral candidates by corporations. 2. An end to insider trading and favored status being given to investment firms like Goldman Sachs.
3. Media accountability - the movement is well aware of the fact that it is a few families of a particular (small) religious group that owns the media, which during elections especially, and at all other times publishes only information which serves a handful of "elite". They want candidates to represent themselves without the boost provided by media bias, from a fixed money pool drawn from public funds.
4. From this, they hope to accomplish their fourth objective - an honest government that does not go around killing innocent people in foreign nations every time the will of the "elite" banking cabal is not served to it's extreme desire while robbing the people of their taxes and future to fund elite cronies in their financial scams. They do not want world government, this movement clearly sees the value in maintaining national soverignty. They want the old America back.
5. They want an end to the police state, over excessive law enforcement, government snooping in the electronic arena, de-criminalization of victimless activities, such as adding onto a home without a permit, running a generator without a permit, growing food without a permit, as well as the legalization of hemp. They would like to see the end of America's absolutely monstrous prison system which is mostly full of people who never actually did anything other than violate a law or ordinance which bans an activity that never involved anyone other than the individual performing the action. They believe prison should be for theives, rapists and murderers, and that it is impossible to deserve arrest for inaction, or action which involved no one else.
6. They want accountability for ALL corporations producing genetically modified foods, and focus especially on Monsanto. They want labeling of genetically modified foods to be MANDATORY, and an end to genetic modification altogether
There are also many affinity groups, such as animal rights, gay rights, women's rights, openly communist or socialist groups and trade unions, who have little to no representation (single tents) placed in prominent locations, the remaining 95 percent of the movement stands for what is listed above. The site politics/CIA, infighting, ect will be discussed farther down the page. Overall the movement is composed of excellent people who seem to be defeating the odds.
here are the people
here is the message
The CIA and other agencies are presentJim Stone, Freelance Journalist, Oct 30 2011 Having been displaced by my recent disaster, and being in Southern California, an obvious destination for me ended up being Occupy L.A. where I joined the group Geezers and Geeks. The main thing I wanted to accomplish in my reporting of Occupy Los Angeles was the exposure of groups and agencies assigned to undermine the movement . I have had enormous success in this. On my first night there, a group of masked people entered the camp at the North East corner and followed the police through the camp, trying to spark fights with everyone. Immediately I began calling them agent provocateurs, and got the camera out. This guy was the first to realize I noticed them and was taking photos. He had a large communication radio with a lit keypad, and seemed to be in contact with the police as they went through the camp - it sounded like a police radio.
The monkey faced demented Santa Claus guy was the creepiest of the bunch
This guy was the first to actually threaten me for taking photos.
I followed them to the front steps of City Hall, where I got a few blurry photos while they shouted threats at me for taking them. They then ran after me, and I sought refuge in a large group of protestors who were having a late night political discussion. The provocateurs then went into the drummers group, where they could see me, and started attempting to spark fights with the drummers. I kept the camera out of sight while I yelled at them, asking how much they were getting paid to make trouble. They escalated and escalated and finally the situation popped, EVERYONE became sure that these people were indeed provacateurs and all gatherings dispersed. The provacateurs then left, never to be seen again.
The silver haired guy looked the most dangerous.
________________________________________________________I knew before going out to Occupy LA that one of the intelligence agencies, ( I am not sure which one,) uses a very unique Asus laptop. It can be identified by two very large cooling ports on the back of it. I had already identified this model of laptop as being a problem because on two other occasions, before ever going to Occupy LA, I got my own laptop hacked into via the wifi when two different people were at public wifi hotspots with this laptop on two different days. I have never been hacked by people with ordinary laptops. I am not surprised when I get hacked because I am always politically active - it happens quite a bit. But it has usually been via the internet, and not a direct hack through the wifi. I noticed that they set up software that attacks via wifi, and then pretend to play games which run horribly. This is a gaming laptop, which is designed to run games GREAT, but while the hack attempt is going on, they run games very poorly and appear to achieve frame rates of 10 or less per second. This can only mean the processors are busy with more than gaming. This laptop STARTS at $1600.00 and often costs over 2,000 depending on configuration. How likely is it then, that a guy who dresses like the way this guy is dressed would show up at Occupy LA with a mega expensive laptop? When I questioned him, he immediately proclaimed that it was designed by a jew and tried to get me to make anti-semetic remarks! Very odd indeed! I believe these people are on scene to hack into the laptops of bona fide protestors, to help intelligence agencies develop dossiers. I was specifically told that there were a total of 3 on site by the guy who tried to get me to make anti-semitic slurs. This is another guy with the same laptop, who just does not fit in. I have not yet seen the third.
There are good undercover police on scene also. These guys never cause any trouble, and in many cases even appear to help. Many of the police, after all, seem to be on our side at Occupy LA. This guy is NOT harmless. Everyone HATES HIM. I asked around about this man, and it turns out that he shows up at ALL protests in the LA area and disrupts them no matter what the protest is for. This is not possible with a typical homeless person. Upon further investigation, this guy never stays the night and at the end of his shift leaves the scene. He is just awful to have around, and tries to appear in EVERY important photo. If there is a large camera on scene, he is THERE talking loudly and seeking to project a homeless/bum image upon the protest. He sets up DEAD CENTER in the action, right in the middle of central square and lays around, yells, and when any serious discussion is taking place he forces his way to the microphone and with meandering speech asks for ridiculous simpleton type things to be done in the name of the protest. It can be expected of the elite to hire and have their people disrupt Occupy LA. I belive I have identified at least a few of them. The only rational decent outside people I consider harmless are the real police, from the LAPD. Thank God they have, so far, been on our side.
