Angry demonstrations against an anti-Islam film spread to their widest extent yet around the Middle East and other Muslim countries Friday. Protesters smashed into the German Embassy in the Sudanese capital and set part of it on fire and climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Tunis, waving an Islamist banner.

One protester was killed in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli in clashes with security forces, after a crowd of protesters set fire to a KFC and an Arby’s restaurant. Protesters hurled stones and glass at police in a furious melee that left 25 people wounded, 18 of them police.

Chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel,” hundreds of protesters angered by an anti-Islam film stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen’s capital and burned the American flag on Thursday, the latest in a series of attacks on American diplomatic missions in the Middle East.

The string of assaults this week, in Yemen, Egypt and the storming of a U.S. consulate in Libya that killed four Americans, point to an increased boldness among Islamists who have become more powerful since last year’s wave of revolts toppled authoritarian leaders.

Oakland police said they arrested about 300 people Saturday as protesters spent a portion of the day trying to get into a vacant convention center, and later broke into City Hall and tried to occupy a YMCA.

As heard on the show this afternoon on Eric Scott Radio, these protesters in Oakland are clueless. They are protesting the ports on the west coast of America because of association! Have you ever heard that phrase ‘guilty by association?’ Well, that’s what this is! Just because investment banking giant Goldman Sachs Group Inc. owns a major stake in SSA Marine, they think they can disrupt the money flow, but at the same time, hurt all of the other companies and the average American! You have to see this video! View full article »


Wall Street protesters’ attempts to block gates at some of the West Coast’s busiest ports have led to the partial shutdown of docks in California, Oregon and Washington state.

The closures affected some of the terminals at the three ports, but it wasn’t immediately clear how much the shutdowns would affect operations.

In Oakland, Calif., shipping companies and the longshoremen’s union agreed to send home about 150 workers, essentially halting operations at two terminals. View full article »


Anti-Wall Street protesters along the West Coast joined an effort Monday to blockade some of the nation’s busiest ports from Anchorage, Alaska, to San Diego, with the thought that if they cut off the ports, they cut into corporate profits.

Demonstrators were to gather to march on the Port of Oakland, which Occupy protesters successfully shut down in November. Marchers also descended on the sprawling port complex spanning Los Angeles and Long Beach as the work day begins. View full article »

As the protests go on in all of the bigger cities around America and the world, don’t be blind to the civil war we have right here in SWLA!  I am really amazed at how lost some people really are. Last night I posted a simple status on Facebook about people just wanting to protest every aspect of life. Wow, I had no clue it would spark 40 comments of hate and unrest! Boy was I wrong.

Having marshaled a pittance of the planned-for protesters for Thursday’s march, “Occupy Wall Streeters” retreated with the passing of noon to familiar ground–their old haunt at Zuccotti Park–to regroup and plan their next move on the proverbial 1 percent.

There, a couple hundred protesters, their ranks depleted with the passing hours, congregated under the wary and watchful eyes of waiting NYPD officers. Above them, gray clouds gathered. Below them, wet puddles soaked their besotted feet.
