More on Cindy Milstein


Cindy Milstein, Anarchist

Many people are interested in Cindy Milstein and why she is involved.  The following transmissions were sent to us since our first article on Cindy was posted.  Several new contributors are focusing on Cindy and other radical occupy hijackers around the globe.  The first transmission is hard to verify. If anyone connects more dots, please let us know.

1. Is Cindy Milstein part of the 1% Milstein famliy? Howard Milstein and the Milstein family are extremely wealthy lefties. Since Cindy doesn’t publicly share her background it’s hard to tell if there is any relation. The only known connections are through the OccupyWallStreet relationship to New York Private Bank and Trust, which is also connected to Howard Milstein as shown in the chart below.  The Milstein family and Cindy may have attended some of the same dedication events in the recent past

Howard Milstein is a rare breed among the CEOs targeted by Occupy Wall Street: He’s a billionaire(*) and a Democrat.

One of the targets of protesters’ “Millionaire March” earlier this month, Milstein leads a family enterprise founded on real estate and banking. He was a bundler for Barack Obama in 2008, a major donor to Andrew Cuomo’s gubernatorial campaign in 2010 and a member of Cuomo’s transition team.

2. Here is a great read about how all hell broke loose on the occupy philly facebook page.  Many blamed Cindy Milstein, but as usual she refrained from commenting. Instead a group of followers came to her rescue from the internet-beef. More on this incident


3. Why are notable anarchists, like Cindy Milstein, at nearly every occupy site around the US and abroad? It seems that David Graeber, who was an early participation in NYC, realized there was some kind of need for the principles of anarchy. He then tapped his social network to initiate a process that put prominent anarchist anti-leaders in day one occupy meetings as they sprung up around the country. There have also been reports of arranged bus trips for anarchist youngsters who were showing up to new cities and participating in voting.  One theory is that this is how certain decisions were made that favor the eventual anarchy objectives.  These objectives include causing clashes with police.  More on David Graebers early involvement


So You Can’t Afford a Lobbyist

I Can't Afford A Lobbyist

Excellent point. Neither can any of the 99%

The sign shown to the right connected with us. It wasn’t because we caught a glimpse of the ever-so-radical Jeff Rousette riding on the roof of an SUV. Nope, not at all. A contributor sent this photo our way before we, at opk, even began to comprehend what we were dealing with. It struck a nerve because, while we were all working our hearts out in the early stages at various occupations, it was a frequent subject over skype. What skills are we lacking? Just before the photo came in, it was decided that we need lobbyists.

The Occupy Philadelphia non-profit, Jobs with Justice, who is hiring organizers and taking donation checks for occupyphilly has an influential lobbyist at the top. So where are they? Why are they hiding? Aren’t they going to help us? Have they not realized this is the biggest thing to happen in a very long time? Why do we run out of water and beg regular people to make donations? It’s all very strange.

Relationship Chart - Alliance for Justice - Raben Group - Occupy Philadelphia

Jobs with Justice is a member of the Alliance for Justice. The group actually seems to support quite a few noble causes. Their director is Robert Raben. Mr. Raben is also former assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice, former council to the House Judiciary Committee, and former advisor to Barney Frank. He is also the president of the Raben Group.

The Raben Group is a top lobby firm and works for New York Private Bank and Trust, MasterCard, GE, Time Warner, Prudential, and others. They have lobbied in the past for Mircrosoft, McGraw-Hill, UBS, and others. We suppose they are just too busy raking in cash to lend their services occupy wall street. Furthermore, the people behind the scenes are not anti-corporation. They are involved with pushing corporate agendas. For those that don’t know, lobby firms are hired by corporations so they can influence lawmakers and change laws in ways that will benefit them. Cha-ching. Is this not the problem we are all trying to fight?

So we face a challenging question. Are our insider big dogs with us or not? They are collecting the 1%er money and we are down here sitting on pavement and revoting on issues like whether or not there should be a music festival? That doesn’t seem right. If they have a plan for all of this, why don’t they tell us, fill us in for the sake of transparency? It would be so uplifting for all of us to hear established and expert support.

Another theory is that we are all pushing their agendas. Volunteering for occupy may be a way for certain parties to cash in on the free labor of the unemployed, homeless, and kindhearted.  Maybe the inner circle and the facilitators are on the payroll, just nudging us along a predefined path. Maybe the occupiers are still slaves to the corporate and non-profit megaliths. Are they really this diabolical?

This Revolution will not be Privatized

Is a correction in order? This Revolution will not be HAS Been Privatized

Mostly every public figure and organization we have connected to occupy is also connected to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party. So the myth that Occupy is neither a left or right movement, but includes all of the 99%, is starting to look less than water tight. This topic will be examined in future transmissions.


By the way, included in the chart above there is one known Soros to Occupy connection. George Soros founded (as in created) a group called the Open Society Institute which recently funded (as in provided cash) the Alliance for Justice. There, now please stop emailing us Soros questions. He’s not THAT interesting. Thank you.


SEIU, Steven Lerner and Occupy

Service Employees International Union

To those of us in-the-know, it is clear that this whole Occupy movement was planned well in advance. There’s the Adbusters seed, calling for the movement. There is certain evidence of prior knowledge, like the craigslist ads. Also, several teams have been identified as early contributors in multiple cities. But how far back does it go? We are still digging and annoying sources for more info on this subject. However, we were able to find this. Some interesting words from an SEIU organizer, Steven Lerner. According to statements made (and allegedly made) by Steven, it seems they planned on starting this initiative as early as March 2011. A full six months prior to the first Occupy Wall Street occupation at Zuccotti Park. Beyond the early discussions we were a bit surprised to hear some of the language used. It’s not profanity or anything like that. Listen for yourself.

The Lerner Tapes:

This edited clip comes courtesy of a random youtuber. full lecture is posted here by SEIU


In this video Steven Lerner was unknowingly recorded (allegedly) in a meeting discussing the plans.


Some candid video of Mr. Lerner, apparently doing what he does best.

The Hiring of Occupy Protestors

It has been clear to many that strange sights are available to the observant at new occupation sites.  The typical formula is as follows.  The first day of camp is met with a strange mix of supporters.  They include:

  • Graduate students, who are often working with established non-profit organizations
  • A professional looking tech team with fancy tents, generators, computers, interesting masks and/or signs with headless suits.  Presumably, they are Anonymous.
  • Security Guards, often with blue arm bands guarding the grad students and tech team.
  • A prominent anarchist.  Usually a prolific writer.
  • Anarchist kids.  Squatters, drifters, what have you.  They show up either day one or two.
  • The houseless (homeless)

There are many accounts of this around the internet. There are also plenty of records indicating why this motley crew may have come together. The fact is that extreme liberal groups, such as The Working Famlies Party, are hiring what they call “Community Organizers” to initiate the groundwork and infrastructure.  The positions are temporary and range from six to eighteen months. They are using their existing networks, we will elaborate, and posting ads on Craigslist. Some examples of their ads are below. Notice how fancy they get by the time Portland needed staff. Now that’s…  industrious… ?!

So that explains where the grad students with experience in activism came from.  There are many more ads floating around – go ahead give it a search.  Try “community organizer” in your local city. Lately though, they are getting smarter by varying up their titles and copy.  In the early stages the ads were identical but with different email addresses and logos. Some of the organizations behind this are: Working Families, Jobs with Justice, SEIU, and The Alliance for Global Justice. They have been planning this. Occupy Wall Street is NOT a spontaneous movement. This is not a case of the masses coming together on their own. In future transmissions we will analyze these groups and their players.
