"Robin Hood" aims at Wall Street next
Rewriting the U.S. Constitution.
Imposing a "Robin Hood tax" on most financial transactions worldwide with the goal of taking from the "rich" to give to the "poor."
Giving the Federal Reserve permission to regulate interest rates on savings accounts.
These are just some of the policies endorsed by a group backing a "Day of Rage" targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism this Saturday.
Wait, there is more. Much more. And guess who is backing this effort?
The scheme seeks to bring to American streets the "same indignation that has prompted the people of Greece and Spain to occupy streets and squares on a permanent basis, the people of Egypt and Tunisia to overthrow their governments, the people of Iceland to nationalize their bank system and rewrite the constitution.
WND previously reported how the upcoming protests, replete with a planned tent city in downtown Manhattan, are closely tied to the founders of ACORN and leaders of major U.S. unions, including the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU.
The main items involved:
- The imposition of a Robin Hood Tax on all financial transactions.
That tax is the brainchild of nongovernmental organizations largely based in the UK. It calls for a new tax on most goods and services to be implemented globally, regionally or unilaterally by individual nations.
- Rebooting the system, and rewriting the Constitution.
The concept seems to be a reference to a plan to push for a new, "progressive" U.S. Constitution by the year 2020.
And of course, any effort to get rid of our constitution would have to have George Soros involved:
WND previously reported at least three White House advisers and officials, including President Obama's regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, have ties to the Constitution rewrite effort, which is funded by Soros.
Sunstein has also been pushing for a new socialist-style U.S. bill of rights that, among other things, would constitutionally require the government to offer each citizen a "useful" job in the farms or industries of the nation.
Day of Rage to turn violent?
Meanwhile, there are indications the "Day of Rage" protesters are training to incite violence, resist arrest and disrupt the legal system.
The protest aims to take root nationwide.
Activists are advertising on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter for a "Day of Rage" on Sept. 17 to begin with the "occupation" of Wall Street and continue with protests across the nation.
Planners have their own website – USDayofRage.org – which tells protesters to "bring your own tent."
The use of the term "Day of Rage" recalls the "Days of Rage" organized in the 1960s by the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization co-founded by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, close associates for years of President Obama.
Numerous radicals, many with direct ties to Obama, are linked to planned protests and other activism scheduled for the coming months.
In March, ACORN founder Wade Rathke announced what he called "days of rage in 10 cities around JP Morgan Chase." Rathke was president of an SEIU local in New Orleans.
We shall see. We can also add this to the growing list of things to watch during this month.
