Editor’s note: Here is an example of the sort of violent behavior the Pittsburgh police are notorious for using against non-violent demonstrators.
Update: Infowars Reporter Rob Dew Now Released After Being Arrested
Police and military units savagely attacked peaceful protesters in a Pittsburgh park last night, cracking heads with billy clubs, deploying LRAD sound cannons and shooting rubber bullets at close range, according to Infowars’ Jason Bermas. Fellow Infowars reporter Rob Dew was arrested during the melee.
Bermas called Alex Jones last night as the attack unfolded. Around 200 to 300 peaceful protesters had converged at Schenley Park for a demonstration but they were soon under assault from busloads of riot cops and military units who quickly descended on the scene.
According to Bermas, police were aggressively charging protesters and cracking them on the head with billy clubs and also shooting rubber bullets at close range, which in numerous past cases has proven deadly.
Police also deployed LRAD sound cannons once again in an attempt to disperse the protesters. Pittsburgh marks the first time that such weapons have been used against American citizens in public as before they were only used against insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Bermas described the scene as like something out of a movie as police attempted to block off the whole park and catch every single protester and were prepared to use violence to do so, saying that they would run up to people and crack them on the head as hard as possible.
“Everyone was just sort of standing around spectating. No one was really having an adamant protest. It was just a bunch of college kids,” witness Ben Balik told The Pittsburgh Channel.
By the end of the confrontation, around half of the entire crowd of protesters had been arrested, including Infowars producer Rob Dew and most likely We Are Change leader Luke Rudkowski.
“Varun Viswanathan, a Pitt sophomore, said he saw a police officer hitting one individual, reports Pitt News.
“I think they completely use unnecessary force on us,” he said. “They have no right to do that.”
“Pitt senior Ken Egler called the police action “one of the crazier things” he’d seen during last night’s protests, especially since he didn’t see many demonstrators in Oakland.”
“I really think it’s ridiculous,” Egler said. “We should be allowed to protest. This is needed, and they’re just basically trying to scare us.”
It is important to emphasize that the obscene behavior of cops in Pittsburgh suggests that police in America will now follow any orders, no matter how barbaric. No one can plausibly deny that the majority of cops would willingly line up American citizens and blow their heads off if they were ordered to.
Police behavior at the G20 has been widely condemned as unwarranted and the violence metered out not to provide security but to provoke demonstrators.
“The deployment of police seems to be more geared toward suppressing lawful demonstrations than actually preventing crime,” Witold Walczak, legal director of the ACLU of Pennsylvania, told the Associated Press.
“Legal observers at the gathering saw police surrounding, chasing and arresting students who weren’t involved in the protest, said Paige Cram, spokeswoman for the National Lawyers Guild, a liberal legal-aid group. She called the show of force “an ominous spectacle,” adds the AP report, referring to a similar protest on Friday night.
“A video posted Friday on YouTube shows a group of Pitt students briefly trapped on the outdoor stairwell of a campus building, evidently exposed to gaseous pepper spray and unable to move because riot police were blocking the bottom and top of the stairs. The students had been standing on a second-floor balcony, observing the clash between police and protesters on the street below.”
As of Saturday morning, we were unable to trace the exact whereabouts of Infowars reporter Rob Dew after he was arrested last night.
“After a long night of calls to Allegheny County Jail and the Pennsylvania Corrections Department, they keep referring us to one another saying they have no information, but that “protesters” are treated differently,” writes Jason Bermas.
We can now report that Rob Dew has been released and the Infowars crew are attempting to catch their flights back to Austin.

It’s a shocking scene that wouldn’t have looked out of place on the streets of Nazi Germany or Maoist China in humanity’s darkest historical period – a protester is shoved into an unmarked car by military thugs and driven away to whatever Godforsaken fate awaits him. And yet this is America in 2009, where the First Amendment is now officially a criminal offense and people who dare exercise it are attacked and abducted by military police in broad daylight.
The video shows an unmarked gold Sedan drive up to a side street near Baum Ave & S Millvale Ave. in Pittsburgh. Men in military fatigues wrestle with the protester as other men in cammo exit the vehicle. The protester is shoved forcefully into the car as the military thugs follow him in and the car speeds away.
Watch the clip below.
Protesters scream “what the fuck is wrong with you” as the Sedan disappears into a cloud of tear gas.
In another You Tube clip, the man with the red bandana seen protesting as the other man is abducted is subsequently arrested by riot cops, presumably merely for voicing his displeasure at the disgraceful scenes he witnessed.
“Some guy just got chased down and thrown in a car for no reason,” states the camerawoman before the shot focuses in on the man with the red bandana, who is being manhandled and arrested by three riot cops.
“Why are you doing that, what did he do?” asks the woman.
Other protesters chant “let him go” as media photographers attempt to find out his name. The clip finishes with a another burst of the sound cannon being used against demonstrators.
Another You Tube clip features the image that is re-posted at the top of this story and asks people to try and identify the military police and riot cops who kidnapped the demonstrator.
These videos require no more explanation, they speak for themselves.
Riot cops and military personnel driving around in unmarked cars kidnapping American citizens off the streets for the crime of exercising their First Amendment.
There can be no more debate, America as we knew it is officially dead and buried. The U.S. is more of a police state than Communist China. The only free speech that still exists is on the Internet, in the form of You Tube videos that remind us of what we already knew – the whole country has been hijacked and looted by a criminal gang of globalists who are using their cadre of enforcer thugs to crush any form of opposition to their agenda.
Our only hope is that when the world witnesses scenes like this, it will act as a wake-up call and prevent the planet from sliding once again into tyranny. Only the most deluded and brainwashed individual can now deny the threat that faces us all when police and military show such contempt for the Constitution that they swore an oath to protect and defend.

In the video here, San Diego cops promise they will not use LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) against demonstrators. If that is the case, why was the device placed at a town hall meeting in San Diego?

David Rothkopf, managing director of Kissinger and Associates and CFR member, has published an op-ed in the globalist propaganda periodical Foreign Policy.
David Rothkopf thinks you’re an idiot for protesting against Obamacare.
“America has been suffering an outbreak of especially virulent and acute stupidity recently,” writes Rothkopf. “It has been particularly manifest at town hall meetings devoted to ‘discussions’ of health care reform in which incensed Republicans scream at the top of their lungs about provisions that are not actually in any of the legislation under consideration — for example the so-called ‘death panels’ that would have bureaucrats deciding when to pull the plug on ‘grandma’ (as President Obama characterized it yesterday).”
It is not clear if Rothkopf has read the legislation. Under Section 1233 of HR 3200, entitled “Advance Care Planning Consultation,” practitioners must explain “the continuum of end-of-life services and supports available, including palliative care and hospice,” in other words the government will be in the business of recommending euthanasia in order to “bend the curve” on health care costs, as Charles Lane noted in The Washington Post.
Of course, the folks Mr. Rothkopf works for are all for eugenics and moving billions of useless eaters off this mortal coil. It was Rothkopf’s boss, Henry Kissinger, who wrote that “depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World.” Kissinger’s boss and patron, David Rockefeller, is from a family that has long advocated and supported removing millions of little people from the planet.
“Rockefeller influence in American eugenics can be traced to the beginnings of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories. John D. Rockefeller, along with Averell Harriman gave $11 million to create the facility in the early 1900’s,” writes Daniel Taylor. “Rockefeller influence also spread overseas to Germany, where the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry, and the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Eugenics, Anthropology and Human Heredity resided. Much of the money used to run these facilities came from Rockefeller. These weren’t just average scientific institutes; the Kaiser Wilhelm Institutes would become the center for Nazi eugenics programs.”
“The world has a cancer, and that cancer is man.” declared Merton Lambert, former spokesman for the Rockefeller foundation. Lambert, of course, was not talking about all men. He was talking about the little folks the elite have nothing but contempt for.
Rothkopf’s latest diatribe provides ample evidence of this seething contempt. He calls patriotic Americans worried about Obama’s totalitarian health care — including the death panels Rothkopf insists will not exist, contrary to the language of the legislation — as idiots and morons. He also betrays another characteristic of the elite — overriding contempt for Christianity and religion. “Religious idiots,” he writes, “demand and are actually accorded respect for ideas that are so preposterous that they wouldn’t make it into the cosmology of Sponge Bob Square Pants.”
Rothkopf does not understand what “the idiots have to complain about” since this “country has done more for them than perhaps any other single segment of our society.” For instance, exporting millions of jobs to foreign slave labor gulags, stealing trillions of dollars from the “idiots” and giving it to the criminal banksters, polluting the food supply with GMO and soft kill weapons, installing a military police state and high-tech surveillance grid, and torching the very fabric of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The “idiots” should stay home and allow Rothkopf’s New World Order turn the planet into a third world cesspool.
Rothkopf also underscores the elite’s hatred of humanity and love of nature denude of pesky useless eaters. “Last week, I spent a couple days — after a beautiful trip of whitewater rafting in Colorado and hiking through the amazing Utah desert — in the idiot capital of America: Las Vegas, Nevada,” he writes. “This past weekend, despite the recession, Las Vegas was choked with people mouth-breathing their way from all-you-can-eat buffets to one opportunity after another to fritter away their kids college funds.”
In conclusion, Rothkopf hits one out of the ballpark as he proudly reveals the misanthropic psychosis of the elite: “Powerful people in America have come to depend on our idiots precisely because they know that when it comes to stupidity, they will never let us down.”
In Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making, Rothkopf sketches out the end game of the elite — a plan to completely dominate the planet, destroy national governments and constitutions, and impose a global corporate totalitarian government. The global elite “have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite’s global operations,” writes Laura Miller in a review of Rothkopf’s book. For more on Rothkopf’s beliefs, see Paul Joseph Watson’s Elitist Blueprint For World Government Revealed.
David Rothkopf is a new breed of globalist. He does not try to hide his contempt for the larger part of humanity. In a way, we should be thankful for his casual venom and also be thankful that Foreign Policy — originally created by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, established by the eugenicists at the Carnegie Institution — considers it worthy of print and the light of day.
