Naomi Wolf: How the FBI, With the Big Banks, Coordinated the Crackdown on Occupy

New documents prove what was once dismissed as paranoid fantasy: totally integrated corporate-state repression of dissent

by Naomi Wolf | Guardian UK
December 29, 2012

It was more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall – so mystifying at the time – was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police. The crackdown, which involved, as you may recall, violent arrests, group disruption, canister missiles to the skulls of protesters, people held in handcuffs so tight they were injured, people held in bondage till they were forced to wet or soil themselves –was coordinated with the big banks themselves.

The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, in a groundbreaking scoop that should once more shame major US media outlets (why are nonprofits now some of the only entities in America left breaking major civil liberties news?), filed this request. The document – reproduced here in an easily searchable format – shows a terrifying network of coordinated DHS, FBI, police, regional fusion center, and private-sector activity so completely merged into one another that the monstrous whole is, in fact, one entity: in some cases, bearing a single name, the Domestic Security Alliance Council.

And it reveals this merged entity to have one centrally planned, locally executed mission. The documents, in short, show the cops and DHS working for and with banks to target, arrest, and politically disable peaceful American citizens.

if naomi wolf is someone that can have the wool pulled over her eyes by a megalomaniac like obama, and go out of her way to endorse him, why should she expect anyone to listen to her now?

Our local Sheriff works for the banks

... look in your local paper's "legal notices" section if you have any doubts about that. Think of the revenues those five full pages generate for the local newspaper ( along with bank's own full page ads ). Now consider the growing "Occupy Your Mortgage" movement ...

Dear Sheriff Minor: will you stand with the banksters ? Or the people ?


I doubt there is any truth to this since the OWS was given a pass for all the crimes it committed, as it was a creation of our CIA. It was anything but peaceful.

It's just what they are now doing over in Syria and what they did in Egypt, only I don't think it will work here (socialist revolution)

Remember Wolf is a collectivist from the left.

Oh Come On

Naomi Wolf's pro-liberty, anti-fascist record promoting truth deserves better than such kneo-jerk polemics.

Those who have grown in understanding beyond the collectivism of tired old school us and them politicized group think know her sentiments are more generally with us than most of the red state voter blocks.

Truer alliance will be found among her crowd. As an individual, I'd stand with her if she stood alone.

Actions Trump Words

She voted for Obama.. this is not collectivism, this is anti-collectivism.

Wolf has a few good ideas but is mostly a socialist.

Left Bower

You Seem Fond Of Group Tags. If one must call a spade a spade, don't be confused by clubs.

I wonder if you ever voted for a Bush. I wouldn't write you off if you did. I like a lot of your good ideas as much as what you do and what that demonstrates as for which you stand.

What I know about Naomi, as an individual, I like.

If you need labels, try Civil Liberties Advocate -- Anti Authoritarian Left.


I saw someone in a blog describe people of this inclination thus:

"The anti-authoritarian left doesn't place much hope on the state.

But the anti-authoritarian left doesn't tend to throw people under the bus for the social safety nets the moderate or progressive left has set up. "

I find many of this stripe to be highly redeemable. ( Diamond in the rough ) Great allies. Fond companions at the table. Hearts is the strong suit. Naomi, particularly, seems warm as she is wise, knowledgeable and discerning; she strkes me as genuine, passionate, appreciative of the best in our movement, open minded and never smug ... pure.

I'll stand shoulder to shoulder with her kind any day. ;-)


I agree

And her book "End of America" shows it. I let a very close and politically apathetic friend borrow it and the next time I saw him he was ready to get out and protest. He wanted to return the book, but after witnessing it's impact on him, I told him to pass it along to someone else.

As always...Naomi Wolf delivers.

She is a TRUE journalist...and a heroine...for her efforts to awaken the American people of the police state.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.


A while back we heard about certain execs in key industries had been recruited by DHS for domestic operations. So it's looking like all the key industries are being infiltrated as well as activism.

So anybody wanna talk about class war now? The new classes are the rulers and everybody else.

No surprise

I agree with someone who posted earlier, it's time for mass organized tax resistance. The "occupy" type of civil disobedience can never achieve more than very limited goals.

You can bet the MSM will not touch this story.

FBI coordinated with the banks!

actually, if there's prior knowledge of a potential attack against you, regardless of if you're a large corporate institution or an individual, it's common for law enforcement to coordinate safety measures with you.
