DHS Warning about Anonymous, US Day of Rage, and “Occupy Wall Street”

An article published today in Computer World reports on a relatively unusual bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center warning financial institutions about risks of attack, surrounding the planned September 17th protest “Occupy Wall Street.”  The article author claims that “Anonymous” has been using twitter to solicit assistance from disgruntled financial institution employees, to then exploit to damage those institutions. I can’t confirm or deny that claim. I will say that in my experience in observing Anonymous that if they want your password, they’ll give it to you.

The most likely case is that overt criticism is being characterized as conspiracy, as part of the sickening trend wherein dissent is being labeled “terrorism.”

I have been unable to access the DHS report, but according to the Computing World article one would gain the impression of a single corporate organization, which in fact is being misrepresented and  constitutes at least three separate and unaffiliated entities. “OccupyWallStreet” “USDayofRage” and Anonymous are all autonomous bodies, sharing neither explicit creed nor operational structure.

I asked OccupyWallStreet for any comment they cared to give; it is important now that representation of all of these movements avoid the misapprehension being encouraged by their adversary agencies. Their response: 

“OCCUPYWALLSTREET will be an absolutely nonviolent event, safe for all people of all ages. Our goal is initiate a peaceful rejuvenation of democracy in America. If we are dispersed from Wall Street, we will simply return to nonviolently re-occupy the space. This is an opportunity for all Americans, on the right and the left, to speak out against the financial capture of our democracy.”

I was also fortunate enough to speak with Alexa O’Brien, a journalist and social/political activist who is one of many helping to organize the USDayofRage (USDOR). I asked her if she could explain USDOR’s association with Anonymous.

None,” says Alexa, “USDOR is an organization started by no one, to help neutralize the sophist quasi-poetic masturbation of our rotten republic’s political discourse. The corruption of election processes, especially campaign finance regulation, has usurped the primacy of the democratic process.” Alexa emphasized the key role which finance plays in obviating effective popular representation several times, outlining USDOR’s philosophy as “One Citizen, One Dollar, One Vote.”  Regarding Anonymous and their reciprocal support, she says: “I would almost prefer no comment. We have no organizational ties with Anonymous-we support informed autonomous action by individual citizens.”

I want to join Alexa in encouraging everyone to “disengage from the political peer-pressure.” The US Day of Rage is about the manifestation of the crucible cracked and the long-building pressure spilling human onto the street – Wall Street. Plans to occupy are based on an assertion of the right to non-violent protest and the obligation to engage in civil disobedience, when the laws represent the interests of the powerful and effect the suffering and enslavement of people to a lie.

OccupyWallStreet’s Tactical Committee meets tomorrow to continue to ossify plans for September 17th. Their goal is enabling people to exercise their right to protest safely without fear of reprisal, and they have received the support and assistance of The People’s Law Collective  toward that end.

I encourage you to follow the USDOROccupyWallStreet,  and Alexa’s twitter accounts for updated information.

    I want to correct a quote.

    The quote is “USDOR is an organization started by no one, to help neutralize the sophist quasi-poetic masturbation of our rotten republic’s political discourse. The corruption of election processes, especially campaign finance regulation, has usurped the primacy of the democratic process”

    should read

    “USDOR was started by a citizen nobody. In the beginning we hoped that we could give Americans a space to cut through the ideological talking points that permeate our nation’s political discourse. Then we realized that most grievances source to corrupt elections which corrupt every branch of government. We can wax poetic about the the conflict of executive power versus legislative power, but that is just philosophical masturbation, because both are owned by the same fickle, disloyal, and incompetent special interest.”

    Cant wait for Anonymous to occupy Wall street! The ordinary people must stand up for their rights against the criminals in Wall Street who have destroyed the worlds economy and plunged the working people into poverty. While innocent people are put out of business these criminals are still rich and employed and will never ever have to face justice because they have friends in high places. Lets hope people turn out in force and show the big shots who’s the real boss. Remember if their is one thing these people fear about the public it is one man one vote! we should use our vote and destroy them !

    I look forward to ordinary people having their say. The ordinary people of not just america but the world must stand up against this Fascist economic system which tramples on their rights! And I don’t say fascist as rhetoric, it is well know that the Nazi’s lost ww2 but fascism won, the economic system we have is that of Nazi Germany where the government and big business get into bed together, Just look at the facts, not one banker or investor who plunged the world into financial ruin has faced justice, why? because if they where to face justice then that might expose certain politicians.Just look at the Strauss Kahn case or the facebook-v-Paul Ceglia case, as soon as their is a flaw in the victims evidence the court either throws the case out or discredits the victim. A prime example of power protecting powerful people over the hard working ordinary citizen ,,,So on September17th best of luck to all who take part and hopefully you can change something in the Devils Belly

    I got this link from AmpedStatus. Glad to see there’s people that know what’s going on. I was called every not-so-nice word in the book when I started saying Wall Street was going to crash in the 1990’s in about a decade. I said it would be even worse than the Great Depression in many ways, because good paying jobs were already being sent over seas. I said it would be due to fraud and manipulation on W.S. & the corporate elite owning our government.
    It was only in recent years that I found out (thank you Matt Taibbi) that Goldman Sachs had a big part in the 1929 stock market crash.

    Sadly..tragically even..until we/you begin to see actual ADMISSIONS of Complicity..the in fact irrefutable truth regarding “Whom Is In Fact Responsible”..ell..until such statements are readily available and being made daily at even..”At All”..well?

    Your “Movement(s)” Are FAKE!

    A Self Deluding Lie and simply part of the Denial and Rationalization process of everyone Involved.


    For the Simple yet rare “Perfect Truth” of the matter is this:



    It is all..every single second..every bullet..every moment of ‘enhanced interrogation’ every ‘roving wiretap’..every fusion center..every bullet dug from the corpses of innocent women and children..every bailout..every corporate partner..every drone aqnd every drone pilot….AL..paid for by:


    And you..and you..and you.

    From Chris Hedges..to Alex Jones..Left..Right..Middle..the Hypocrisy that is the “Result” of this massive denial epidemic..and utter lack of Responsibility for YOUR money and how it is spent..the TRUTH is not that the “Problem” is “wall Street”..or the “Government”…nope.

    They are merely the Producers of a Lethally Defective PRODUCT..YOU..are the CONSUMERS.

    You are denying this..avoiding this irrefutable truth like the plague..and your denial has become the real..”Problem”.

    If you want it stopped?


    Stop buying the products of their “Corporate Partners”.

    But the fact..sadly..is that you people are a mixture of..Cowardice..Denial..Delusion..and Irresponsibility and finally..laziness. Yeah..thats right..for it is your..incredible..UNWILLINGNESS to be “Inconvenienced” by say..a “Slower Internet” that becomes by proxy “Financial Support For Surveillance ‘Contractors’ Like Verizon and AT/T”

    More Denial.

    This is what you must do if you ant to be..”Real”:

    1) Stop engaging in open and aggressive Censorship. The Cubicle Left is now an Incredibly Aggressive Censorship Vehicle.

    2) Go After The Money. I even have a Slogan/Common Narrative for you:

    “Money Talks! Bullshid Walks!”

    Or simply: “Put Your MONEY where Your Mouths Are”.


    These two “Tactics” are so perfect in their effectiveness and ability to remove entrenched and vicious power structures they should really be called the “Scientific Laws Of Resistance”. For From Mandela to Gandhi to Farm Workers to the Founding Fathers..it is TAX RESISTANCE AND BOYCOTTS that WORKED. Nothing Else.

    “Let Them March All They Want As Long As They Continue Paying Their Taxes.” Alexander Haig

    4) Social Networks are a LIE. They are in fact Consensus Killers and Weak Tie association “Feel Good” Denial Machines. Nothing Is Better as a result of “Sns’s” and in fact..EVERYTHING is WORSE.

    They are also..Surveillance.

    You people are engaged in Fake..”Facebook” protest. And until you make “Strong Tie Associations” and commit to “Risky ActioN” like TAX PROTEST and Straight Up “REFUSAL TO PAY THE SALARIES OF THOSE DESTROYING YOUR LIBERTY” you will accomplish “Less Than Nothing”. Yup..”Less Than Nothing” because by doing thes efake protests that accomplish nothing..you in fact “Weaken” even the “possibility” of any real “movement”.

    ONLY the money matters at this time.

    There is NO Better Tactic and no more “Specific Tactic” and no more PROVEN EFFECTIVE Tactic..than boycott and tax strike.

    And finally..of course..these are also..ALSO..”Non-Violent”.

    but..you will not do that.

    You people have become like the “Climate CHange Deniers” on the “Right”..you Can Not admit your own complicity as the Producers..Financiers..Backers..ENABLERS of ALL You CLAIM to Despise..because to do so..is to admit that you MUST Engage in REAL and Risky Action or simply be quiet and Obey.

    And you..cannot do that.

    You are too weak and afraid.

    Afraid of losing “Stuff”..Afraid of REPRISAL From the Federal Government..etc..etc..etc..

    Your Pretend “Actions” are a Joke to the Federals. They are LAUGHING at you.

    Their ONLY Fear..is that you will..STOP PAYING.

    But you won’t.

    Its too Inconvenient. Too Risky.

    You are a lie.

    An ongoing General Strike is the only thing that will end the corruption
