FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Tuesday, May 1, 2012
MEDIA NOTE: Additional Documentation Attached to this Email
Columbus, Ohio -  The Ohio Liberty Council (OLC), reacting to the failed terrorist attack in Cleveland, by calling for a full investigation by the media and law enforcement officials throughout the state, of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Ohio Liberty Council President, Tom Zawistowski, said,  "The evidence is clear that the Cleveland terrorists were active members of the Occupy Movement in Cleveland. A movement that, in April, held "training camps" for activists in Ohio at which media reports indicate attendees were trained to "create havoc and disruptions" and to "create gridlock". Our organization provided documentation to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine in April indicating that it was likely that the Occupy Movement would be orchestrating violence in Ohio before this year's elections, including plans to attack TEA Party groups throughout Ohio." 
Zawistowski went on to say, "We believe that the Occupy Movement is being funded by the UAW and the SEIU and is being managed by groups like Progress Ohio.  These groups may be encouraging this type of criminal activity by the type of people they are recruiting and the training they are providing.  Reports indicate that their goal is to create civil unrest and to intimidate citizens and groups who oppose their big government agenda. The media and our law enforcement agencies have been way behind the curve on this activity and they need to start taking this threat seriously before someone gets killed."
The Ohio Liberty Council is a council of Liberty Group leaders whose purpose is to unite conservative grassroots organizations for greater effectiveness in the state and nation, and to provide resources for member organizations to strengthen their groups. The OLC currently has over 75 liberty-minded groups across Ohio who are members of its coalition.



Health Care for America Now and other progressive organizations will train thousands of activists for the "99% Spring," a massive series of grassroots actions aimed at exposing how the 1% broke our economy and demonstrating how the rest of us can fix it.
We have been inspired by the work of the Occupy Wall Street movement and the fight to protect workers' rights in Wisconsin, Ohio, and across the country. This kind of energy has a place in all of our communities.
Training sessions on direct non-violent action will be held at community centers, union halls, public libraries, and other gathering places nationwide between April 9 and 15. Join or host a "99% Spring" training session by clicking here.

Hundreds of OWS training workshops took place this month throughout the country, in all 50 states, including small rural areas. Inside one of the training workshops, attendees report that OWS is “specifically instructed to go to any and all Tea Party gatherings, rallies, etc., to be confrontational and create havoc and disruption.”
They are being trained to recruit and enlarge their numbers in their assigned geographic locations, to use the correct messaging, to incite any opponents, engage in confrontation, employ tactics to evade police blockades and create gridlock.
OWS workshops are extremely organized and clearly well funded. Each workshop had a trainer, DVD’s, handouts and a training manual.
OWS has deep pockets and they will be providing food, water, entertainment and more… just as we saw last Fall with the gourmet meals, tents, hotel rooms and printing presses for their newspapers.
OWS is not a grassroots movement, as demonstrated by the training, resources and coordination at their workshops. OWS is orchestrated and organized by George Soros’ MoveOn.org and Media Matters, Van Jones, Steve Lerner, Francis Fox-Piven, Barack Obama, Union leaders (e.g. SEIU, AFL/CIO, UAW), Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and other radical far-left anti-American organizations who are dedicated to the destruction of our free market system and the overthrow of our Constitutional form of government.
Eric Holder, Barack Obama, the Democrat Party – including the Marxist/Communist members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus – and the news and print media are all in bed with OWS. Ordinary Americans cannot and should not expect that OWS will be held accountable for inciting riots, raping women (as they did the last time around) or for any other crimes they may commit.
Recall that under the Obama administration the New Black Panthers have not been held accountable for the crimes they have committed, union thugs have escaped their crimes, the Muslim Brotherhood is now welcomed into our White House, drug cartels and vicious gangs are aided and abetted by Obama’s Fast & Furious gun program, and on and on, so all indicators point to the top coming down on patriotic Americans, not those who commit crimes against them.
The “community organizer” front groups that finance and orchestrate OWS operations want riots to occur. Remember what Van Jones revealed… “Bottom Up” riots will enable the “Top Down” enforcement against innocent by-standers in order to turn our country “Inside Out” and give Obama the crisis he wants.
Manufacturing chaos via OWS will enable Obama to declare a National Emergency and invoke the unconstitutional powers he has amassed through Executive Order and recent legislation designed to transform our country. Indefinite detainment of Americans without charge or trail, suspending the Constitution and ushering in their new totalitarian form of government, taking over more industries and seizing more of our money and property… that is their goal… to transform our way of life and end Liberty as we know it.
Unless OWS is confronted by strong local police enforcement and city officials, they will create the crisis that will not go to waste by the Obama administration, his all-powerful Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and his brown shirts who will act as his Civilian National Security Force that’s just as strong, just as powerful and just as well-funded as our military.

Bring at least one additional person with you – someone who was not planning to attend the Tea Party gathering. If everyone brings just one extra person, you instantly double the size of your group. There’s power in numbers.

Do not engage with any OWS group or member who appears to be looking for a fight because that is exactly what they want you to do; it plays right into their plan to create chaos and/or riots.

Stay cool, calm and collected. It’s critical to keep in mind that they are extremely well trained, funded and organized. Although there are far more of us than them, their organizational strength, training, tactics, hateful hearts and loud mouths give them the advantage. So again, do not fall into their trap and do not engage because they will undoubtedly be pushing for it.

Have video cameras rolling.

If OWS escalates, move your group to an alternate location to avoid OWS as much as possible. Do not travel alone – stay as a group. If OWS follows your group, ask police to help you move to another location away from the OWS harassment and if law enforcement is nowhere in sight and the situation feels threatening, call 911. You’ll have your video footage as evidence that you were peacefully assembling and they’ll see what OWS was doing to you.

Be prepared, watch each other’s backs, stay together and stay safe.

Know that OWS creators, leaders and financiers are targeting Americans who want to restore and preserve our Constitutional Republic. Their plan is bottom up, top down and inside out. They intend to protect and promote their “Dear Leader” Obama and silence voices of opposition until the totalitarian transformation is complete. But we’re onto them and we outnumber them. Good must triumph over evil.

According to The Daily Caller, a politically conservative news site (via The Detroit News), the United Auto Workers union is helping to organize a group called The 99% Spring, which describes itself as an offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The 99% Spring is a coalition of 43 organizations, but The Daily Caller says the UAW is the "powerhouse" behind the effort that seeks to train 100,000 Americans "for non-violent direct action." While UAW presidentBob King has voiced support for the movement, an unknown source told The Detroit News that the UAW is merely a part of the coalition and is not its "mastermind."
Josh Bolotsky, a so-called online organizer listed as a contact for The 99% Spring, told The Daily Caller that "an independent tech issue led to some docs, both public and private, appearing briefly on [the UAW's public-facing web site]," adding that activists at the Movement Strategy Center and the New Organizing Institute were "[t]he chief co-coordinators of the overall project."
Full copies of the documentation obtained by The Daily Caller from the UAW website can be seen after the break... so we suggest you draw your own conclusions.


A recent investigation by the Daily Caller has revealed that the Service International Employees Union--the fastest growing labor union in the United States, which spent $28 million in supporting Barack Obama get elected--have created a covert network of community organizing groups to support the Occupy movement.  A Washington, D.C. law firm reportedly retained by SEIU helped incorporate the various community groups, and the listed corporate addresses for each group are tied back to local SEIU offices.  According to the Caller, “The SEIU used the law firm of Trister, Ross, Schadler and Goldto legally incorporate many of the local community groups. The firm was responsible for incorporating the groups in Houston, Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia and Washington.Michael Trister, the firm’s principal partner, is a well-known labor lawyer. In 1998 he wrote a federal election law manual for union lawyers.” 

According to the Caller:

Incorporated by the SEIU as local non-profits, the groups are waging concerted local political campaigns to publicly attack conservative political figures, banks, energy companies and other corporations. Each local group has portrayed itself as an independent community organization not tied to any special interest. But they were founded, incorporated, and led by SEIU personnel.  The individual activist groups use benign-sounding names including This Is Our DC; Good Jobs, Great Houston; Good Jobs, Better BaltimoreGood Jobs Now in DetroitFight for PhillyOne Pittsburgh; Good Jobs LA; and Minnesotans for a Fair Economy. 

In reality, they are creations of the wealthy and influential labor union, amounting to a secret network of new SEIU front groups. One group in particular has gained significant attention in the nation’s capitol--“Our DC”--a name that suggests the group has local grassroots even though its legal address is in Gaithersburg, Md., which is the headquarters address of SEIU Local 500. Reports indicate that some of the SEIU influence has occurred only a few blocks from where their national headquarters are based in Washington, D.C. in Dupont Circle. According to the Caller one of the groups--Our DC incited protestors at the Occupy CPAC rally in early February, and also sent 30 protestors to unlawfully assemble in the congressional office of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell during the December “Take Back the Capitol” campaign. 

Apparently the campaign, which was promoted by Occupy DC was actually orchestrated by union officials. A Caller source said that during the protest African-American and Hispanic protestors occupied McConnell’s office two Caucasian women used laptop computers in the hallway to post messages on Twitter. The event was apparently reported through a website for “99% in DC,” and records from the Internet server dictate the group was apparently managed by SEIU--even though activists in the field denied any connection to the Occupy movement. 

The Caller explained:

The Daily Caller previously reported on a similar tactic employed in February by theUnited Auto Workers, which sought to distance itself from a “99% Spring” campaign scheduled for April. Planning documents described that union as one participant of many, even though the documents were being distributed from an unprotected portion of a UAW Web server.  Many of the Internet domain names for the groups’ websites were originally registered through an anonymous proxy service. But records compiled by Robtex.com, a website reputation management firm, reveal that all of their IP (Internet Protocol) addresses link back to a main SEIU Web server. An IP address is a unique number assigned to an Internet-connected computer or computer network. The principal IP address of the SEIU’s main Web server reveals an inventory of 69 Web domains representing union and advocacy groups throughout the United States. All of the sites corresponding to the city-specific SEIU front groups are on that server.  Most of their websites have similar visual designs and appear to be based on the same template — a template that The Daily Caller was able to identify on an unprotected SEIU server.

The group participated in several protests and rallied including occupations of offices for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolf and House Speaker John Boehner as well as an “Occupy K Street” rally and the “National Day of Action for the 99%” which resulted in the closing of parts of the Francis Scott Key Bridgethat connects the District with Virginia. 

Video evidence captured at CPAC has revealed that an “Our DC” member was leading the charge with a megaphone and another video published by The Huffington Post revealed a massive “Occupy United” banner displayed by protestors waving similar 99% signs.  The Caller investigation reported:  For example, the legal name of the Los Angeles group “Good Jobs LA,” is “Good Jobs, Safe Communities LA.” It is registered with the California Secretary of State at the Sacramento headquarters address of SEIU California.  The street addresses listed on many of the websites themselves, however, do not correspond with SEIU locals.   At least one of the websites, “One Pittsburgh,” provides a list of 14 “coalition partners,” including the NAACP, the Sierra Club, Clean Water Action, and locals of the United Food and Commercial Workers and an Ironworkers union affiliated with the AFL-CIO. The SEIU is among that list, making its role appear minor.  The street addresses listed on many of the websites themselves, however, do not correspond with SEIU locals. SEIU connected groups are tax exempt under their registered 501(c)(4) status, but contributions are not tax-deductible as they are with charitable 501(c)(3) organizations. The Caller summarized the irony of this story best when it opined, “While the Occupy movement abhors corporate secrecy, demanding that Wall Street firms and banks open their books, the new SEIU network is marked by a lack of transparency that runs afoul of best-practice standards established by the non-profit and philanthropic communities.”
