by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The group that takes credit for the Occupy Wall Street movement of 2011 has a new and even more outrageous plan in mind. They intend to “occupy” the White House.

Adbusters, an online magazine that describes itself as “a global network of artists, activists, writers, pranksters, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to advance the new social activist movement of the information age” issued a post that they called Tactical Briefing #1 to launch their plans to “lay siege” to the President’s home in Washington, DC.

Cuban-American business owners to Black Lives Matter activists: “You are acting like the mafia!”

by Michael Alexander, Natural News:

The residents of Louisville, Kentucky, have denounced the tactics employed by the local Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapter to sway local business owners, noting in a protest that the activists are using methods similar to those used by the mafia.

The protest, staged by the city’s substantial Cuban-American population, was conceived as a way to push back against the demands sent by the Black Lives Matter crowd to the city’s business owners.

The demands, which were circulated by activists since early July, had several key points that were purportedly aimed at “uplifting” the lives of the Black families in the area.

This week, maybe as soon as Monday, the Seattle City Council will vote to lop off several police programs and officers in an effort to “defund” police.

Seattle City Council Approves Plan to Defund Police, Layoff 100 Cops, Slash Salaries

from Breitbart:

SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle City Council approved proposals Monday that would reduce the police department by as many as 100 officers through layoffs and attrition — an action supported by protesters who have marched in the city following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis but strongly opposed by the mayor and police chief.

Measures that would cut less than $4 million of the department’s $400 million annual budget this year passed out of committee unanimously last week. On Monday, only council member Kshama Sawant voted against the budget package, saying it does not do enough to defund the police.
