The three, Bryan Church, Jarred...

It’s NATO week in Chicago. The Occupiers, anarchists, socialists, unions, and other professional protesters are in the process of “couch-surfing” their way into town (for those who aren’t occupying foreclosed housing) for the NATO summit that officially takes place May 20-21.

Yesterday, eight protesters who were part of around twenty people who...

Appropos of Anne’s post earlier today about the Occupy movement, Citizens United is planning a roll out of Occupy Unmasked.

It’s the culmination of what Andrew Breitbart always said about the Occupy movement, that it was part and parcel of the Democrats’ political plans.

So proud!  Can’t wait to tell all the summer friends on Martha’s Vineyard how Amber confronted the fuzz at Zuccotti Park, just like we did at Columbia in ’68.
