    Issa: $400G in Stimulus Funds Stomped On at Occupy D.C. Park
    • [​IMG]
      Nov. 24, 2011: Occupy D.C. protesters' tents at McPherson Square park in Washington, D.C.
    Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House oversight committee, is asking the Obama administration to explain how it could allow Occupy protesters to destroy $400,000 worth of landscaping and refurbishment by setting up camp in a D.C. park.
    Issa wrote to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on Tuesday requesting he reply to an eight-page letter detailing the decisions of the National Park Service to withhold evictions of protesters who had clearly set up a tent city despite NPS' rules barring camping at the park.

    Issa said NPS' laxity toward enforcing its own rules has resulted in protesters killing "newly planted grass that had been funded by the stimulus" and "wasting much of the hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer money used to rehabilitate McPherson Square."
    "While the merits of this stimulus funding are debatable, we can all agree that once the federal government invested the funds, no government agency should have allowed it to be damaged or destroyed when it legally could have been prevented," Issa wrote.
    “The National Park Service and U.S. Park Police are firmly committed to upholding Americans’ First Amendment rights while also enforcing our nation’s laws, guarding public safety, and protecting the resources with which we are entrusted," Adam Fetcher, a spokesman of the Interior Department said in a statement to Fox News.

    4 Arrested as Cops Clear 'Occupy Albany' Camp

    ALBANY, N.Y – Four "Occupy Albany" protesters were arrested during evening clashes with police as officers cleared the demonstrators' downtown encampment.
    Albany Police removed tents and broke up the "Occupy Albany" camp in Academy Park on Thursday afternoon following a court order, FOX23 News reported.

    Protesters responded by parading the final "Occupy Albany" tent around the city for hours, bringing it back to the park, then attempting to repeat the parade around the Albany, N.Y., streets for a second time.
    Police moved in to block the group from taking the tent back on to the streets, sparking clashes between officers and the protesters.
    Officers used pepper spray against protesters and several people were injured, including a television cameraman, who was hit in the back and taken from the scene in an ambulance.
    "There was an officer, a mounted policeman on horse, literally riding through the crowd, just spraying, pepper spraying indiscriminately anybody who was in the crowd in front of him, it was completely flagrant," protester Bradley Russell told FOX23 News.

    Tournament of Roses to Occupiers: You Can't March in Our Parade

    (CNSNews.com) - Although an Occupy Wall Street protest group in Pasadena, Calif., tried to get a slot to march in the Rose Parade on Jan. 2, officials with the parade said no. The group now plans to march down the street behind a group of police cars that mark the end of the parade.
    In November, the Occupy group announced its plans to “occupy” the parade, but the Pasadena Tournament of Roses provided a statement on Wednesday to CNSNews.com saying that protesters would “not be taking part in the Rose Parade” because only official entries, approved by the tournament well in advance of the event, can take part in the event.
    Also, Lt. Plhunte Riddle of the Pasadena Police Department told CNSNews.com in a telephone interview: “The Tournament of Roses has the exclusive authority to issue permits for the entries in the parade. Occupy has not been issued a permit.”

      Police in Charlotte arrested four men after they reportedly set two American flags on fire Friday morning at an Occupy protest site.
    Some members of the Occupy Wall Street group in Charlotte, N.C., are under fire for setting American flags ablaze, but one of the protesters is defending his incendiary actions.
    "Those were actions taken on my behalf," Occupy Charlotte member Alex Tyler said at a camp meeting, according to a Charlotte Observer report. "I did it to display my utter contempt for American greed, not (the military)."
    Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have charged Tyler and three other men with arson and setting fire to woods in the area of tents that previously housed members of the local Occupy movement. A police report says the men caused the fire by burning two American flags.

    Surging Back Into Zuccotti Park, Protesters Are Cleared by Police

    Dave Sanders for The New York TimesMembers of the Occupy movement shouted “Shame!” as officers pulled one demonstrator from the park.

    2:10 a.m. | Updated
    More than 500 people associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement gathered in Zuccotti Park on Saturday and, in a return to scenes from earlier in the year, the evening began with the sound of drumming and calls of the now familiar slogan, “We are the 99 percent” — and it ended with torn-down barricades and a scuffle with police officers.
    Just after 10:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, officers carried a person out of the park, prompting protesters to follow behind them, shouting “Shame!” The reason the person was escorted away was unclear.
    About 20 minutes later, a group of protesters grabbed some of the metal barricades that surround the park and began piling them inside. As they gripped the barricades, police officers took hold as well, and a shoving match began, the silver bars trapped in between. At least one police officer fired an arch of pepper spray into the crowd behind those barricades.
    Moments later, at least a dozen police officers charged into the park, plowing directly into a crowd of people, some of whom were trying to flee, pushing and shoving. One man was thrown down and pinned to the ground by several officers.

      December 29, 2011: Occupy activists test a float made with a copy of the Constitution in Pasadena, Calif.
    PASADENA, Calif. – The 2012 Tournament of Roses parade went off without a hitch Monday morning in Pasadena, then thousands of protesters followed in its wake carrying a 250-foot-long banner representing the U.S. Constitution and a 70-foot-long octopus representing corporate greed.
    The chanting marchers intended to walk the entire parade route. Behind them were three truckloads of Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies in riot gear, though no problems had been reported.
    The 123rd Rose Parade, which was held on Monday because the New Year's Day holiday fell on a Sunday, attracted hundreds of thousands of spectators and a worldwide audience.

    Man faces charges after leaving 13-month-old at Occupy DC camp

    • [​IMG]
      This photo shows a 13-month-old girl allegedly left at Occupy D.C. Camp.
    WASHINGTON – Authorities have charged a man with leaving a 13-month-old girl alone in a tent at the Occupy D.C. camp.
    Officers were called to McPherson Square Wednesday morning after other people living in the park heard the girl crying, Sgt. David Schlosser, a U.S. Park Spokesman confirms to Fox News.
    Police believe the girl had been alone for at least a half hour wearing just a onesie on a rainy day when the temperature was in the mid-40s.
    The girl was checked by medics and placed in the custody of the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency.
    About 30 minutes later, a man approached officers claiming to be the child's father. He was arrested and charged with attempted second-degree cruelty to children. Police have not identified the man but said he had a tent in the Occupy encampment.
    "None of us knew this person," Kelly Canavan, a protester who has been living at the camp told Washington Post.
    "It was a despicable, atrocious thing to do. Everyone here is revolted by the behavior," she said.

    Not as sad as it is that they are reproducing. I can only imagine the number of occubabies that will be running around in the not too distant future despite the fact that they can't take care of the kids they already have.

    Single dad trying to take back home from Occupy Wall Street protesters
    They’re occupying his home.
    Occupy Wall Street protesters announced with great fanfare last month that they moved a homeless family into a “foreclosed” Brooklyn, N.Y., home — even though they knew the house belonged to a struggling single father desperately trying to renegotiate his mortgage, The Post has learned.
    “They’re trying to take a house and say the bank is robbing the people because the mortgage is too high — so contact the owner!” fumed Wise Ahadzi, 28, who owns the home at 702 Vermont St. in East New York.

      January 17, 2012: As Congress returns from its winter recess, protesters aligned with the Occupy Wall Street movement demonstrate on Capitol Hill in Washington to decry the influence of corporate money in politics.
    WASHINGTON – An apparent smoke bomb was thrown over the fence of the White House as hundreds of Occupy protesters massed outside the gates.
    The crowds were dispersed Tuesday night and the White House was all clear. U.S. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie says there were no arrests in the incident.
    The Obamas were at dinner celebrating Michelle Obama's birthday, but they have since returned to the White House without difficulty.
    The tense scene outside the White House follows an earlier protest on the West Lawn of the Capitol, in which several hundred protesters affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement decried the influence of corporate money in politics and voice myriad other grievances.

    ‘Occupiers’ Throw Bibles, Allegedly Urinate on Cross

    Members of the Occupy Wall Street movement urinated on a cross, desecrated a church and threw Bibles at police officers in separate incidents over the weekend.
    Protesters in San Francisco occupied an abandoned hotel and began attacking police – hurling bricks and Bibles at officers.
    “Once they gained access [to the hotel], some of them made it to the top of the roof and they began to throw Bibles down at the officers,” San Francisco Police Dept. spokesman Carlos Manfredi told ABC News.
    Several officers were injured in the attack.
    In New York City, Occupy protesters allegedly urinated on a cross inside a Brooklyn church.
    “An occupier peed inside the building and the pee came into contact with a cross,” wrote Rabbi Chaim Gruber in a note to the New York Post.
