CONGRESSMAN TOM RICE'S HRes 442

Obviously, it's tough to miss the Tea Party Fire Ants when they are at work, swarming. We have been splitting our swarms recently between two House resolutions: HRes36 for a Benghazi Select Committee and Rice's HRes 442, which in our opinion is a smart and straightforward move to cut through the BS and bring suit against the administration for relief against a number of Obama's Presidential overreaches. It's smart and the smart money says it can work. Here is a small swarm sample from last night, to approximately 40 Congressional House Representatives.



...You get the idea.

Congressman Tom Rice's office certainly didn't miss #TPFA at work the last couple of weeks swarming congress for co-sponsors for HRes442 (and yes, it has more co-sponsors, now, and yes, they are saying, like Wolf, that it is the swarms that are having the most impact). Today after a phone conversation with Rice's office, TPFA Twitter Swarm Leader Kathy Amidon got the following e-mail.



Of course we are happy to oblige and ask you to pass the following links to everyone you know on twitter and ask them to retweet them.

Congressman Rice's office is asking everyone to act as "citizen co-sponsors". The target number for the number of citizen co-sponsors now appears to be 10,000, and with some places like Tea Party Net having 100,000's of followers, Washington DC tea Party having 150,000, and the like, that really should not be such a problem. We have tested the links and they are fine.

Please click HERE and be a citizen co-sponsor. It's safe and will do wonders, quickly.

HRes 422 allows Rice & Congress to take Obama to court for overreach, meaning, among other things, Obamacare takes a body blow. Video:

Notable quotes if you have trouble with the video. Rice: "The resolution just requires a vote of the House, it doesn't even require a vote of the Senate … to bring a lawsuit against the president for violation of Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution, which requires that he take care to faithfully execute the laws of the land... "He can't pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce. He has to enforce all of the laws.....the legal experts that I conferred with before I did this — and I've been working on this for months — came to the conclusion that this is a legitimate question for the courts … Many of the steps the president has taken are certainly outside of his authority. Things like extending, unilaterally, the employer mandate for a year, things like allowing the 'substandard insurance policies' to continue to be issued for a year …The House has brought institutional suits to enforce subpoenas where the executive branch has ignored subpoenas in the past. "It was determined in those cases that we had what's called institutional standing. There's never been a case like this, and we're looking forward to prosecuting it."

So besides swarming, or even while swarming, take a moment and become a citizen co-sponsor to Rice's brilliantly conceived. If swarming isn't your thing, then at least do sign on as a citizen co-sponsor. You'll be making real history.

On a secondary note, after 14 months of 100% volunteer activism, our ability to outrun the eventualities of working for nothing is becoming exhausted, and Benghazi-Truth & the Tea Party Fire Ants are now taking donations, which I hasten to add are handled by Twitter swarm leader Kathy Amidon (who has been putting in 14-hour days for a year with nothing back for it - the donation account goes to her and will be managed by her to pay people and expenses) to cover expenses, and for advanced activist materials. Please reach down and give what you can. Don't be shy: $1.00 can go a very long way. The link on the right is glitchy and we're working on that, so for the time being please follow the link, below, which is 100% secure via Paypal. Please Do it now and keep the Fire Ants swarming and growing at full vigor. 

NOTE in response to the trolls attacking TPFA on Twitter; Donations are not tax deductible, so if you give $10.00 to TPFA, you can't write it off in April of 2015. Trolls seem to think that's a big deal, but they're trolls, right? Right.


You have seen what we can do in the last year for free. Help us grow into 2014. Thank you.

Wither Troll Credibility? New Troll Angle: "TEA PARTY POLICE"

(Images courtesy the Fair Use Act).
The following e-mail was sent to  Kathy  from the head of a large and prestigious Tea Party group which wishes to remain anonymous  generally on this issue lest they get drawn into troll madness - though that person has made it quite clear that they will step up on this issue if needed. If you don;t quite know what is involved behind-the-scenes of running a highly effective Tea Party group, the effectiveness of which draws such targeted hate and lunacy, here is an inside peek.

A little background first:


1. The receiver has given us permission to post this with rebuttal and the sender has no legal expectation of privacy on this matter.


2. Since this letter details point-by-point the talking points of the usual trolls, and the style like one in particular, we feel quite certain this was written and sent by, IMO, the usual jerk on Twitter, @Clarencesilkwow, who since admitted being @Sirtatters, who is a female named Dawn (last name withheld). She claims to be law enforcement but when the local police stations around her town and the state FBI were called, no one had ever heard of her. In their estimation, on several points this letter segues from absurd ranting into actionable conduct. That's a different issue, though claiming to be law enforcement when not is not legal, and doing what she is doing as a law enforcement officer would get her fired- at least. That's what the police and FBI said, as i understand the conversations. This person Dawn is now IMO, demonstrating psychotic behavior; the obsessive quantity of attacks is simply something none of us have ever seen on social media before. If you have been watching that play out on the #TPFA hashtag you likely agree.


3. The large and prestigious group to whom this was sent has dismissed it entirely and indeed, the attack only strengthened  camaraderie between our two groups and we are now organizing activist ops as allied groups. Fear of that was almost certainly the motivation of the following letter designed to drive a wedge between the Tea Party Fire Ants and the other group. Just as Newsweek's attack on our boycott backfired by instead advertising the event and making it the only successful boycott on Fox ever done, this letter backfired, too: instead of dividing our two groups so they would not work together to greater overall effect, we are now closer than ever and have agreed that it will work well to operate as activists off and on as an allied team.  




Certainly we don't want to  allow them to distract us - and you - from productive work but A. They may be sending this around to others to quietly attack us in the hope that they can do so without engaging us on the facts and B. it might be helpful for you to see just the kind of malicious evil trolls manifest while the rest of you chat merrily away.

Here's the e-mail. with rebuttals in red 



Whoever runs your Twitter page has been interacting with a "group" called "Tea Party Fire Ants", hashtag #TPFA, owner is  @ FrankMDavis and his "helper" @ Kathy_Amidon. We are very concerned about you aligning with this group because of their behavior. The owner has kept his identity hidden so he doesn't get busted for his lies.


Bad assumption - I write under a pseudonym, like many writers, so I don't get dragged into the madness of, IMO, psychotics; a decision I see was correct.



They are PROVEN liars and can only be bad for GROUP NAME WITHHELD AT REQUEST OF OWNER. We are BEGGING you to look into this for yourself, 


They did, they apparently think you're a jerk.


don't just take our word for it!



We(?) are an "undercover" group("Undercover group" is now an apparent euphemism for "Trolls") of concerned patriots who feel the need to help Tea Parties avoid this fraudulent group.


There are some very serious issues that you should be aware of. The main concern is the owner If the writer means "founder", that is me. He is actively attacking people who are telling the truth about his group, including releasing their names, addresses and even the names of their children. Absolute bullshit. No names except Dawn's first name have been given and no addresses or children's names.  Outrageous and impossible to prove, since it never happened. He launched a vile attack on well known conservative, Harriett Baldwin, on the very night her husband died. Bullshit again, 100%. Any words to Harriet - who we reported with screenshots that she was leading spamblocking ops against conservatives (of this there can be no debate - the screenshots are absolute unless she wants to explain them, which she has refused to do) - were made as a defense of TPFA on the hashtag which is the only place I can see her since I have had her blocked for months. If my response was written on the night her husband died, then IMO she should be doing something more dignified than trolling an honest group at such a time in her life. I have no idea what is going on in the lives of people who attack TPFA - none of us follow them and most of us have them blocked, including me. They also went after conservative actor, James Woods, claiming he's actually a liberal, simply because he asked to be taken out of a thread of conversation on Twitter. Untrue. As you can see here, we claim he is liberal for apparently helping in the spamblocking of conservatives and the fact that as a "conservative", his public political donations stink. There's a screenshot of "Frank" attacking Conservative Chuck Woolery, too. Now they've actually written an entire article trying to discredit him. No, we just said that Woolery should stop the chatter and get more active. Bitching only got us a second term of Obama. No such "entire article" by us exists here or elsewhere.  They constantly claim they are being attacked by "paid libs". They are ex-members and popular conservatives! Only 2 or 3 are, IMO, "outed plants" the rest were never with us, and none are "popular" in the conventional sense. We hope that that is enough to motivate you not to associate with this group IMO, There they say their real motivation: to prevent the two groups from hooking up and becoming greater than the sum of each alone, however, there is more. 


Earlier in the year, this group got some press (mostly negative, making fun of Tea Parties in general) when they launched a "boycott" on FOX News for not reporting more on Benghazi. Many people joined but quickly left due to the behavior of the owner and his helper, Kathy. Here by citing kathy by her real name, they have sequed into actionable and possibly criminal conduct. The owner, who remains anonymous, claims to be a media expert and goes by the name Frank (Davis) because he believes that Obama's real father is the late communist. That part is true. www.evidencevault.blogspot.com, top of the page. Kathy contacted many popular news outlets, Untrue, Newsweek picked up on the article independently off Twitter and the rest followed their lead--->



 including those on the left, who of course, ran with the news of some "crazy Tea Party" boycotting FOX. Of course the media was saying "Tea Party Boycotts..." because they lump us all together. They made the distinction that the Tea Party fire Ants are an independent   sub-group of the Tea Party, which itself has no central governing authority, anyway. 



Several ran the story but Frank refused to even speak on the phone with any of them You can imagine what a career in NYC media would be worth if they knew I was doing this, though we find this apparent desperate whining clearly motivated by being unable to apply the politics of personal destruction to me interesting since Dawn goes by two fake MALE names.. Kathy and an ex "member" (see link below) did a couple of interviews. This group then made up fake stats, claiming an effect on the ratings. Untrue. The ratings reported by us were 100% genuine. We provided the links to a few outfits, including the very reputable TV By The Numbers - the first day of the Boycott Fox ratings fell by 22%. That's on-record. Thank you, Newsweek.(Images are screenshots from ratings reported by "TV By The Numbers")



They requested a thank you letter from Rep. Wolf's office and got it (and two more later). Volunteered by Wolf's office, thanks. His office sends out "hundreds of requested letters each week". Absolute baloney. Such letters are exceedingly rare. Ask Wolf's office for one, sometime, and see what you get. If true, where are the rest out there in the world? For the record, Wolf has sent us three letters on different occasions, two more than any other group and we are only aware of one other group that ever got a single one. We're rightfully proud of that, and the IMO trolls hate the fact that we have that cred.


We agree with most of their messages, but when the lies become public, which they will be soon, we don't want the Tea Party to go down with them. The point is, since the media does lump us together, we must not allow ourselves to be tied to this "Twitter Tea Party" as they are becoming radical and are proven liars. This IMO is slander. There has not been a single lie by us, proven or otherwise, clearly, since they offer not one shred of evidence of untruth by us. Dawn, by including Kathy in this, is now at-odds with the law.


If you look at our photos, you will see disturbing things from this group. One particularly shocking claim was that they were responsible for "rallying" 178 congressmen to co-sponsor HRes36! 


Ask Rep Wolf, and we never said "responsible", we have only used terms like pivitol and critical. Wolf agrees. Image added by us-->










The claim was made while DEMANDING a NH Tea Party "prove" their accomplishments. 


True. But the New Hampshire "Tea Party" group also "does not care for" Sarah Palin and wants us all to forget about Benghazi; not our idea of a Tea Party group:








The NH Tea Party group, unlike these "fire ants", have an actual group that has a website, meets and functions in real life, not just on Twitter. These shocking (GASP!) tweets are included with the photos.


This "group" gives "advice from a media pro" like printing messages on balloons for a protest...complete with a photo graphic of Photoshopmessages on balloons, and a phony story to boot! What a silly thing to lie about! But sadly, that's the MO with this group.


IMO very obvious Slander, again. The event happened and we will be posting videos as part of a larger TPFA promotional video, soon. Kathy ATTENDED the activity.

  

Perhaps most telling is their most recent "challenge" to Tea Parties. They are again DEMANDING proof of Tea Party accomplishments to prove their "worth" as a Tea Party! We're hoping you'd agree, but who do they think they are to demand that any patriot group explain themselves to some anonymous "Twitter Tea Party" who won't even stand behind his own "work"? Can you imagine your Tea Party running with the "founder" hiding his/her identity - although sometimes you might want to! This behavior goes against everything the Tea Party stands for! 

*Eyeroll* You can see why the head of the group to whom this troll letter was sent dismissed it as bullshit. And we challenged that very group to show accomplishment or achieve some - and they have agreed to the challenge!!! They understand that the tea Party needs to get out of chat mode and into take back America mode, and God Bless them for it! 
They are not the only ones who agreed with the challenge, by the way. This is a different group-->


You'll notice on the "challenge" graphic that they take credit for FOX rehiring Sarah Palin (seriously)


I will post what I assume they included, here. You may debate the causation, but like the FOX boycott, you cannot argue the timing



Less than 2 months later Palin was back with Fox. Coincidence? Who else operating as an organized group were doing anything that would have contributed to that? Of course there is causation, because the Boycott numbers were/are 100% genuine and on-record. 

 and claims Rep. Wolf said they were "critical" in getting more sponsors on HRes36 (he thanked them for their help).


That's what Wolf himself has said! (Sheesh! Brother! Laughing or have a headache, yet? It's a little of both for me)



Anyone that disagrees with either Frank or Kathy is relentlessly called a "troll", a liberal, and in many cases, much worse.


No, disagreements are fine. We call trolls "trolls" relentlessly as responses to their relentless trolling. They can stop that by ending the trolling of the TPFA hashtag and letters like this one.


 The former members of the group that have attempted to warn others are not only having their private info released, they are constantly told the police are going to arrest them. 


Only 1 person has been reported to the police, police who agree misconduct is certainly  apparent. A few former members who are among the trolls were IMO (and that of others) clearly plants as they never did anything substantial, except "Stan", and we were suspect the moment he, IMO, tried to behave like the official spokesman for the TPFA when the media covered the boycott, the strategies of which he had zero input. When we objected, he left the group, and that's fine; IMO you can't have loose cannons making all sorts of declarative statements to the press on behalf of the organizers. Since then, Stan the "senior editor" of his newsletter with only one writer that we can tell - himself - has complained bitterly about TPFA. It seems every successful group winds up with one of these guys, and that's just how it is.



If you look at the timeline of the "owner", you will see the threats that come day after day, and now, a graphic (graphics are his specialty) stating that two of the people (he believes they are the same person) have been reported to the police. We have no personal knowledge of police contact but presume it is untrue since the two (along with many, many others) continue to warn people about the group.


Untrue. Police have been contacted. If Dawn wants us to release the names of the exact police departments/FBI offices contacted and the people spoken to there, we will release them here. That's up to her. We're trying to be gracious victims of troll slander and defamation, but patience is at a premium, now.



 We have contacted the police in our area Interesting slip-up, since this presumes all the 'people" are in the same area. Pretty much confirms that all are coming from the same person - in one area - with multiple ID's; Dawn/Clarence/SirTatters to find out if we are allowed to provide this information. We are, just as the people tweeting facts about TPFA are operating legally.


This letter was read to police who suggested that laws are being broken.



 TPFA releasing private information,especially about the children, is illegal.


This is really a gross, unconscionable lie and we challenge them to provide screenshots. Horrendous untruth in that one, and by including Kathy in the TPFA name automatically makes for actionable and possibly criminal conduct by the writer.



 However, without his identity, or a serious, direct threat, they can't do anything. If GROUP NAME WITHHELD AT REQUEST OF OWNER says anything against them, they will turn on you, too. They already wrote about you on their website, which we assume you know about. We are surprised that after what they said you chose to have what he calls an "unofficial alliance" with them.


The Trolls should not be surprised. The owners of that group agreed with the challenge. They are honest people with America's best interests at heart and are working with us now, and we, them. 

We pray that you will do your own investigation before engaging with them. 

They did. They think you're full of shit.



Their behavior and attitude has driven away a number of conservative patriots who unwittingly got involved. While their media ideas and method of tweeting our government officials may be helpful, they are also things that can be done on your own without subjecting your Tea Party to this very negative, two member group. Thank you for your time.


Hundreds of people tweet and retweet "I am a proud Tea Party Fire Ant" every day. The organization has several people in front and behind the scenes organizing and operating the Tea Party Fire Ants. Here are a few notable groups  who identify themselves on Twitter in solidarity as Tea Party Fire Ants


Look at the #TPFA timeline. Notice how few people actually tweet their messages. All positive tweets are by Frank, Kathy and the 4-10 people who they have convinced to help them that day.


This refers to the die-hards who tweet with TPFA every single evening between 7:30 PM & 10:00 PM. Such dedication is at a premuim and the trolls who wrote this offer not one accomplishment of their own, for contract, you will notice. By the way, re the #TPFA timeline, the troll is being clever here - the #TPFA timeline is never looped into these activities so you don't see them there. Cute, but too cute by half.



 You will also see many, many WELL KNOWN CONSERVATIVES trying to warn people away from them. There is a reason!

The only well-known ones we known "Conservatives" warning people away from TPFA of were IMO (and everyone with whom we associate who has looked) caught red-handed in group spamblock  operations suspending unwary  Conservative  accounts, and that we proved with screenshots. When we ask them to explain the screenshots, they only attack louder.



Take a look at their rambling website.

You're reading it. ;)



 The website is non-stop praise...of themselves. The photos are fake/Photoshop,

No faking of events held has ever been done. A blatant lie as bad as the others. This burns me up because it's hard as hell to get people to get active. Even Overpasses for America, with whom we also coordinate and support, only ever has a handful at any given event. That is one thing we hope to remedy with the alliance with this other very large TP group to whom this troll e-mail was sent.



 the ONE media "event" they concocted is alluded to over and over. It was all on the same day, and primarily made the Tea Party look bad. Their facts and figures are made up. Look into it. http: // benghazi-truth.blogspot.com/

Read stories explaining in detail why people left and why the TPFA are proven liars. 

Stan is the, IMO, malcontent mentioned earlier. By all means read his junk - we're all for open dialogue.  Ask Stan what he has accomplished. What's that? Nothing? That's our assessment. (Headache!)



Respectfully,

Tea Party Police

The TEA PARTY POLICE?!?! Submitted anonymously by people who complain endlessly and with great concern that I write here under a pseudonym. Beyond insane.


Think it's easy to run a productive, activist tea party group like the Tea Party Fire Ants/Benghazi Truth? All we ask is that you tweet congress and media with us to hold Obama accountable to make an even greater impact than we are making now. Be grateful you don't have to deal with this kind of malicious, childish foolishness.


Thanks for indulging this insanity for a few minutes to appreciate what goes on behind the scenes, here. See you on twitter!

TEA PARTIES. TIME TO GET THE JOB DONE

ADDENDUM: 1 day after this blog was posted, TheTeaParty.net made a huge reversal in it's approach, and e-mailed the following morning what amounts to an invitation to all to do exactly what we described. In my opinion the structure of this event is proving to not quite be there, yet, and we'll address that in a day, but we're very greatly heartened by Tea Party.net's sense of unofficial alliance with  the Tea Party Fire Ants, and if in our marketing judgement today's event lacks surgical nuance and precision, they certainly have organized and out-come based passion, and that's everything. We can quibble about the specifics later and as friends. Big kudos and thanks to Tea Party.net's clear sense that they, like we, put what's best for all and appear to be avoiding, with clarity and at all costs, the destructive mindset which we here behind-the-scenes call "the Big Cheese Syndrome". We are hopeful for a long and productive activist alliance with Tea Party.net, the first group besides the Tea Party Fire Ants to, in our judgement, starting doing it right - and they have a very big membership, so we are hopeful of stellar, manifest results from our working together which will make a real difference in righting this nation, not just the usual posturing and meaningless chatter.

Thank you Tea Party.net. We're pleased and proud to stand with you.




******************************************    
Original post:

OK, What's wrong with this picture?

What's wrong is that they retweeted my remark, but have failed utterly to live up to what is stated. They, nor any other group so far except the Tea Party Fire Ants (us) have been Tweeting congress as an organized effort to let the will of the people be known to the GOP, and doing so in a way in which the GOP congressmen know that everyone else sees what is being demanded. That's called PUBLIC PRESSURE and nothing moves an ambitious politician whose comfy life is determined by the voting of the people as does public pressure. Worse, these Tea Parties, which in 2010 were about nothing but activism, have failed to even rally their own members and followers, and a retweet isn't enough to get people to change unproductive habits, and that is exactly and only what we are talking about.

Recently this was articulated more efficiently and effectively than I ever could by our own Janson Smithers in a series of comments, and I want to put them up front and center. But first, watch this video, please:

Janson:

The way TPFA has done things, we've had more success in getting awesome results. Those letters from Wolf thanking us for contributing to there being so MANY cosponsors of HRes36 illustrate my point. 

So if people want to succeed, wouldn't the ideal thing to do be studying how successful people and/or groups get things done? In other words, should people want to learn effective methods of doing things as opposed to mere catharsis? (note, if a media specialist offers free advice, please take it!!)

YES!

Actions speak louder than words: Actions = effective activism. Words= what people usually put out there.


Something else:

The USA (over 300 MILLION people) is at a crossroads.

Here's something I want to share about me:

I used to be a sheep (well, not a Democrat sheep, but still...) and I am SICK and TIRED of our Reps doing the following:

1.) Going slower than a snail covered in molasses in January regarding important things to help our country. Dems move fast in destroying our nation, so wouldn't it make sense for the GOP to move faster in helping save our nation??? I would think such a thing would be obvious!

2.) Not preserving, protecting and defending the US Constitution.

3.) Doing things to lose my trust and respect.

I am just now starting to get my life going and excuse me while I respectfully request our public servants by serving the public!

I am still young and I have many years ahead of me, if only the GOP would get a backbone and do their jobs! Otherwise, Obama will ruin America. And my American dream, and MILLIONS of other American dreams, lives, futures will also be ruined!


It seems some people get offended when you ask them to prove what their accomplishments are.

In light of how easy it is to share a list of accomplishments (three ways listed below), when I see only claims that a group or a person has accomplished something, refusing to do so makes them look bad.

Ideas on how to share list of accomplishments:

1.) Make a YouTube video stating what they are. YouTube gives people plenty of time in creating vids to do so.

2.) Tweet them one by one on their Twitter page. Like Twitter, it's free and easy.

3.) Create a blog (here on Blogger, for example), make the list on there and then share it with us.

Free & easy.


To refuse to do what's free and easy.... um.... huh?

There you have it. Who needs to be told any more than that? The Tea Parties need to stop acting like troll surrogates posting distractions all day long while believing that being a social club based on sharing news clippings is in any way going to solves a thing. Take Janson's extremely clear-headed and well-expressed advice. Get active! You can find us on Twitter at @Kathy-Amidon or @Kathy_Amidon2 (our TPFA twitter leader who is constantly gulaged by trolls)@FrankMDavisJR (me), @JansonSithers_2012, @Pugs47 and a few hundred TPFA & TPFA Friends and many 1,000's of followers.

WE NEED THOSE CONGRESSIONAL TWITTER THREADS TO BE FILLED WITH THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE DEMANDING No Budget deal Without Obamacare repeal (#NoDealWithoutRepeal) and getting HRes36 for a Benghazi Select Committee an up or down floor vote from Boehner.

LET'S ROLL, PEOPLE. If you want to Tweet, TWEET CONGRESS! It works!









Tea Parties. Do you have acknowledgements like these? If not, GET ON THE STICK. LET'S GO.RALLY AND ORGANIZE TO TWEET CONGRESS ON OBAMACARE AND BENGHAZI!

The Future: The Tea Party Barter Deal

Since 2010, the media has told the world, alternating, that the Tea Party is dead, or, as elections approach, tells some story of someone who is trying to become the leader. Recently, retired General and sometime FOX NEWS talking head Gen. Paul Vallely addressed the terrific Arizona Surprise Tea Party (Surprise is terrific because it was that group which petitioned Sheriff Joe Arpaio to send his plethora of detectives and investigators to pour over Obama's birth certificate [Arpaio has 3,400 law enforcement personnel on the payroll and another 1,000 who volunteer] and came up with the fact that Obama's birth certificate is an outlandishly amateurish forgery). This seems as good a time as any, then, to lay out some specifics about where this blog feels the Tea Party must go - and what political territory it must avoid like the plague. We'll use the video of Vallely as a springboard and example of what to avoid.

You only need to see his video for the first 3 minutes to see where Vallely is going, and IMO it's a very, very bad place.




1. He consistently refers to the Tea Party in the past tense while trying to court it.

2. He says that the Tea Party is going nowhere and needs central leadership (read "Big Government") to get Congress to act (I guess he hasn't been paying much attention to the Tea Party Fire Ants, who, in terms of actual get-er-done for the conservative cause, IMO beat Vallely handily. Vallely's built an organization, but where is the accomplishment where it counts - swaying media and congress? We've done it. Has he? Anyone have an example? I can't find one).

3. Vallely says in essence that the best thing for America is that the Tea Party willingly allow itself to be absorbed into his organization for leadership and then immediately promotes his own credentials in an IMO obvious bid to be the leader.

So, in other words, for the supposed good of America, it's apparent that almost unknown-to-America Vallely wants to subjugate the Tea Party to his supreme authority. We see this kind of thing all the time as elections arise: individuals want to claim the creation of the Tea Party for themselves or make themselves it's supreme leader or both. That's a nice gig if you want it and can get it: to be supreme authority of the most powerful political movement in 50 years in the most powerful nation on earth.

IMO his "offer" and "advice" reek of nothing more noble than manifestations of a craving for raw, unbridled power, no matter how patriotically couched. No thanks, Vallely.

But conservatives, frustrated by the current notable lack of Tea Party power, have started, here and there, whining about the need for strong leadership to "get things done" forgetting that the Tea Party's genius is its autonomy and the freedom of each group. 

Well, what do you want done? You want the GOP congress to act the way you want them to act? You want the Tea Party to make a dent on liberal media - or circumvent it entirely? You want the Tea Party to see the conservative GOP take control of the House and Senate in 2014? You want to see Obama held to account for his many outrageous scandals which make Richard Nixon look like Abraham Lincoln?

If you want those things done, then - and many, the trolls and lazy alike, won't like this - you have to stop gazing upward for political messiahs and look at yourself in the mirror. The Tea Party does not need a Caesar. It needs more activist boots on the ground. There is more than enough leadership within the Tea Party to do anything conservatives want done. What the Tea Party needs are more people to stop looking for leaders and help make current strategies actually happen. Here are a couple of examples using what we know:

1. On twitter, this group under the hashtag #TPFA, as you know got the vast lions share of 178  GOP Reps to co-sponsor a Benghazi Select Committee. #TPFA is still a relatively small group and yet we did that. Imagine what could happen if  instead of a few hundred we had 20,000 doing the exact same thing? The difference would be proportional.

2. We did not need a central authority to organize the FOX NEWS TURN RIGHT boycott which, to this day, leaves a resounding dent in Fox News ratings - and told FOX the right is not happy in the way it matters: in FOX NEWS' pocketbook - the only group to ever accomplish that.

3. Overpasses 4 America, whom we endorse 100% , has made major media as well and reaches millions of people daily during their events. They needed no "Master Control" for that. Imagine if 100,000 did that every day?

4. Surprise Tea party needed no Central Agency to petition Arpaio. What if ALL Tea Parties nation-wide did that for their own sheriff's and state officials?

However, a federal bureaucracy-style Tea Party might have said, "You cannot attach our name to any of those things", "You are not to do this and that", "We have decided it is best to handle things the way John Boehner handles them"  and the results which occurred may then have never happened. Indeed, in that hypothetical, could never have happened.

So what is the alternative to a central government-style Tea Party organization? Easy. It's called Working Together.  It's that simple. I founded the Tea Party Fire Ants #TPFA and am it's principle strategist. Unless you have achieved those kinds of results yourself, you'll have to take my word on this unless you have a better idea and can prove it. As is always true in America, it is YOU who makes the difference, not a handsome hero who will keep you entertained and cheering while he does, impossibly, the work that only you can do.

But we do need organization, and to that end I suggest a very simple thing. 

THE TEA PARTY BARTER DEAL

It's simple. If you want to help anyone, or need help and are will to help in return, I suggest you simple tweet the following:

I WANT TO ENTER A TEA PARTY BARTER DEAL WITH .@NameOnTwitter. Will provide X for X

and/ or

I HAVE A TEA PARTY BARTER DEAL WITH .@NameOnTwitter for X & X

It is all at once the Federalist / Capitalist model which always works in America: freedom for all and nothing for nothing/ something for something.

The problem, of course, is always getting the first people to make the start so that others follow. YOU be the person to start. If every one of you reading this blog (many 1,000's) start today you alone can get this nation's Tea Party up and humming productively all over the country in a week, make gigantic  progress  fast and maintain freedom and autonomy for all Tea Parties, within the alliance and from without, because no central authority tells anyone what they can or can not do: we do it. You do it.

Then the Tea Party can at last re-harness the power from 2010 and revitalize it to be 100 times what it was.

And then there will be no need for Caesars.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A FEW YEARS WE HAVE SOME THINGS TO BE THANKFUL FOR POLITICALLY:

1. Obamacare has rolled out and had the same effect as was predicted here 2 months ago. The good news is that it is proving a disaster for the democrats as their poll numbers for 2014 are now falling well below that of the Republicans who haven;t done anything but sit and watch (which is wrong - they can;t hold that advantage forever with the media against them - they must press their advantage now so they are well above their current poll numbers 11 months from now). Therefore

2. This may be the end of concerns about sopcialized medicine in our lifetimes. We can thank God that someone less ideologically crazy and more skilled than Obama was not behind it, because they might have pulled it off. As it stands, Obamacare looks certain to face the very real prpospect of a full repeal IF WE KEEP PRESSING THEM. Therefore

3. The GOP appears to be growing a spine as they watch the media attack Obama for a change. They should act NOW before the media chances its mind.

4. Therefore Tea Parties need to act. And they are. In solidarity with TPFA, it's causes and activism, and to stand united against trolls who would divide us, significant TP leaders and tea Parties just in the last days have formally pledged their support and allied action.


5. Therefore, TPFA and other Tea Parties of proven accomplishment, together as an allied political front, are certain to have real decisive power in the direction of this country in ways RINOs themselves will be forced to accept and against which democrats are currently helpless - America has now learned not to trust the democrats. Or at least the democrats in the White House and Congress.

6. Therefore, things are suddenly looking pretty good for the future as long as we stay truly active on Congress' back. That's all it probably takes, now.

7. Therefore, since will will not onlt stayt active with other Tea Parties, we will - indeed, really, must - see this nation move to the right because TP candidates are springing up all over for 2014 to challenge RINOs for the GOP nominations. Already we see the RINO/centrist GOP running to over to the right, with several centrist democrats with them. This is certain to continue. If Obama keeps fighting for Obamacare, dems lose. If he admits it was a mistake, dems lose. If he tries a modification - which cannot work because the core plan is horrible and the media will not cover for them because their lives are at stake now (and that isn't theory - take it from me - the media offices in NYC are filled with seething liberals who got their bad health care news and are  absolutely furious that "Barack betrayed me"). As long as we jump on congress so they don't turn jellyfish utterly and try to make nice with Obama while they absolutely, 100% hold the cards to win completely (and TPFA has manifestly proven itself pretty good at communicating with congress) - we will see a huge move to the right in the coming 12 months.

This is no time to breath a sign of relief, make no mistake -  there is still much fun, exciting, sometimes time-consuming and by necessity productive work to do to absolutely, positively ensure a giant lurch to the right in the coming year. The road ahead in the next year is certain to be filled with potholes, trolls and unexpected outrages. But the plan itself is neither complicated nor particularly difficult to see realized, generally. Obama did most of the work for us: in overplaying his ideological  communist hand, Obama has opened the door for a Reaganesque revolution with a certain seismic shift in congress in 2014. Not even liberals - as they are proving - are prepared to trust Obama with their very lives anymore, and no matter how you slice it, there is no successful exit from or implementation of Obamacare. It just stinks, and Obama will not, by any stretch, be invited to speak at any of but the most liberal districts for the 2014 elections. And when a party must run that hard from their standard-bearer because of a plan they fought to see realized which has resulted in a situation they cannot control - and they cannot control what is happening to people's health care costs and plans - that is the end of that party's control of congress. It's a combination of historic patterns that can be 100% relied-on to deliver all the political power we need in 2014. That's another prediction TPFA is certain will come true - one we're overjoyed and excited to make and enthusiastic to help see realized for America's sake.

THANK GOD.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
