FCC to end net neutrality,DC protests coming Dec 7 at Verizon stores

FCC Chairman Agit Pai has announced plans to revoke net neutrality protections as early as December this year. Once this takes place, ISP's will be able to block popular websites unless people pay for "social upgrades," "media upgrades," "entertainment upgrades," etc. With Cable TV subscriptions plummeting, Big Cable and Big Telcos are keen to apply that business model to the Internet. As usual, Tor will defeat their blocking.

Protests at Verizon stores will begin on Dec 7, including two stores here in DC

Just Say No to Scott Mugno as OSHA Director

Just Say No to Scott Mugno as OSHA Director-Fired Federal OSHA Whistleblower Investigator  Speaks Out

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Just Say No to Scott Mugno as OSHA Director

11/21/17

It’s traditional to give a President the discretion to appoint whomever she/he wants as federal administrator. However, there’s a reason Congress has a say in this process, and it should now just say no to President Trump’s nomination of Scott Mugno to be the new Director of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

FedEx has a long record of dangerous health and safety practices leading to a high number of FedEx truck wrecks that were engineered by Tump's new appointee to head OSHA Scott Mugno.

NPI exiled to barn, shut down early after losing Ronald Reagan building

On Nov 19, 2016, Richard Spencer's "National Policy Institue" (NPI) met in the Ronald Reagan building in DC, throwing Nazi salutes while maybe 1,000 protesters beseiged the building. One year later, on Nov 19, 2017 they had to meet in a barn after the Ronald Reagan building dumped them, and it appears far fewer attended. Recent bounced checks by Richard Spencer probably made hotels unavailable.

Update Nov 20,2017:The barn that hosted NPI has been identified as Rocklands Farm in Poolesville, MD. It appears to be a rustic host site for weddings etc and was rented under false pretences. NPI was ordered to leave as soon as the owners realized they had Nazis on their property

NPI has been reduced to a few Nazis meeting in a barn.

Cops demand ID for residents to enter own block in W Baltimore

As of the 19th of November, Baltimore Police are holding the 500 block of Shroeder (at Edmondson & Schroeder) under armed occupation, with at least 9 police cars on site and residents of the block required to show ID proving an address on the block to enter. Residents without ID presumably can leave but cannot return to their own homes.

Update Nov 22:The "crime scene" is no longer active. Turns out Detective Suiter was killed with his own gun, in a no-cameras area, one day before he was to testify before a grand jury against a squad of indicted cops.

"Tax Prom" with Mike Pence draws Tax March Chicken, protesters

The evening of Nov 16 featured a pro-GOP tax plan "Tax Prom" staring theocratic VP Mike Pence, $2,500 VIP tickets-and some uninvited guests making plenty of noise outside. The Tax March Chicken and Corruption Cleanup were in attendance, the former a reference to the refusal of Donald Trump to release his tax returns while peddling a tax "reform" bill to jack up middle class taxes and cut taxes on the rich.

Odd police behavior at Democrat/Indivisble/Not One Penny protest against Trump tax bill

On November 15, the Senate planned to vote on Trump's tax "reform" bill that would raise taxes on the middle class and cut them for the rich. No vote by 6:30PM that day, and at noon protesters were outside the Capitol East Front. Several Democratic members of Congress spoke, so a hefty Capitol Police presence was no surprise but their behavior was another matter. As soon as a known antifa journalist set up a camera on a tripod, police fanned out to surround the crowd.

Update 6PM Nov 15: GOP Sen Ron Johnson will vote NO

Reportback and video from Catharsis DC "Temple Burn"

On the 11th of November, Catharis DC staged their "Temple Burn" bonfire on the Mall. As always, the bonfire was preceded by a spectacular fire ceremony. Again the NPS limited the size of the bonfire, and this year NPS also banned one of the art installations, a 40+ foot sculpture of a nude woman. This was replaced by a smaller but similar projection installation.

Updated:New, better quality mix video of the fire dance and bonfire

Students take over Hart Building in protest for clean DREAM act

On the 9th of November, an estimated 1,000 students walked out of DC schools and swarmed the Hart Senate Office Building for a loud protest demanding that a DREAM act be passed. Such a bill would protect young migrants brought here as children from being rounded up at deported, in some cases to countries they've never even seen. Protesters linked the Atrium galleries and dropped banners, demanding a clean bill with no provisions harming other migrants or border communities. At least one arrest was reported.
