MIC CHECK!!! – OCCUPY Des Moines gets vocal with Newt Gingrich; website OCCUPIED as well.

MIC CHECK!!!  Occupy Des Moines Mic Checks Newt Gingrich while he was receiving a key endorsement from Iowa House Speaker Kraig Paulson.  Although small in number, Occupy Des Moines did a great job disrupting  Gingrich’s acceptance speech. A bad day all around for Newt Gingrich because he not only got heckled and embarrassed, but his campaign website got OCCUPIED as well.  In a clever bit of IP redirection, when you try to go to NewtGingrich.com, you will be redirected to various sites across the internet with negative stories regarding Gingrich himself.  I tried to access NewtGingrich.com’s site 5 separate times and ended up in 5 different places, from The Atlantic, Washington Post, Youtube, etc.  It is unclear who actually hacked the website, but kudos to them!

The consistent pressure on Newt Gingrich from all sides including from within his own party ,  has decimated his standing as the GOP front-runner, and the long-time political insider is now experiencing a free fall in the polls no so dissimilar to Herman Cain‘s demise.

Aliyah Shahid of The New york Daily News writes……..

Newt Gingrich‘s week just keeps getting worse.

The Republican presidential candidate – who has sunk in several polls over the past few days-was harassed Wednesday by Occupy Des Moines protesters during an endorsement event in Iowa.

Later, it got so heated that the ex-House Speaker was eventually chased down the stairwell of the state capitol and into his car, according to the Des Moines Register.

Occupy Movement Steps Up Activism in Iowa with Pre-Caucus Focus on GOP Race

The Occupy movement is making its presence felt in Iowa ahead of the Iowa Caucus — the nation’s first nominating contest for the 2012 presidential elections. Demonstrators have targeted the Iowa Democratic Party headquarters and the “Obama for America” office in recent days, protesting measures being considered in Washington dealing with defense spending, a planned oil pipeline and jobless benefits. Next they plan to focus on Republicans who will be crisscrossing the state in the next two weeks seeking voters’ support. “We think that we have a right to — a constitutional right — to state our purpose and to call for, and to address grievances that we have with the government and the corporate control of the government,” says Hugh Espey, the executive director of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, a 36-year-old grassroots organization with some 4,000 members. “These sorts of protest are going to continue until we have a system that puts people before profits and communities before corporations.”
