‘Occupy Wall Street’ plans to march on Koch, Murdoch mansions

Published

on

The protesters who have been inhabiting lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park for nearly four weeks are reportedly planning an uptown jaunt — to “occupy” the sidewalks outside the homes of Wall Street power brokers such as David Koch, JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and embattled News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch.

CNN Money reported that organizers are targeting the homes because of the “willingness to hoard wealth at the expense of the 99 percent.”

Protesters will take the subway uptown to 59th Street, near Central Park, and begin their march — which does not hold a police permit, so legally it must be confined to the sidewalk — around noon.

The march is not expected to be large — estimates hover around 100 people planning to attend.

The Occupy Wall Street protest has inspired more than 100 similar protests across the country. The New York faction has held several marches, including last week’s massive march of solidarity with unions and political groups, and yesterday’s march to Washington Square Park. Police presence in the park is constant, and there have been several incidents that ended in dozens of arrests.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that the protesters “want to express themselves,” and that the city would allow the camp to remain in Zuccotti Park, which is privately-owned and not subject to the same curfew rules as city-owned parks.

“As long as they obey the laws, we’ll allow them to [stay],” Bloomberg said.

New York prosecutors are showing they're serious about the look into President Donald Trump's finances out of concern for fraud.

The New York Times reported Wednesday afternoon that this is part of the year-long legal battle between Trump and the Manhattan district attorney Cy Vance.

A subpoena was previously issued for Trump's tax returns last year, but Trump fought it all the way to the Supreme Court, where he was told to comply with subpoenas and hand over the documents.

Trump indicates he cares about money for the first time — saying a GOP convention at the White House is ‘cheaper’

Published

on

President Donald Trump hasn't cared about how much things cost in the past, but suddenly he decided he cares about the hefty dollars he has cost the American taxpayer with security for his adult children who work for him and for his many vacations.

During his press briefing Wednesday, Trump said that hosting his GOP convention speech at the White House would be less expensive and that if he was supposed to travel somewhere it would ultimately cost taxpayers a lot of money.
