CONSERVATIVE ABUSE ON TWITTER AND TWITTER'S INTIMATE TIES TO OBAMA'S WHITE HOUSE

Images used via the Fair Use Act.

It's funny how things grow in the summer.

This all started, of course, when we, the Tea Party Fire Ants, started to become genuinely effective in driving some areas of media and congress. If you are a regular reader, you know the story.  At that point trolls descended on us like locusts, and you know what we mean by trolls: leftists pretending to be conservative to fill the air with meaningless distractions and try to ruin effective conservatives by destroying their reputations with slander and innuendo and frighten them off with alarmingly aggressive attacks and death threats. Our trials and tribulations have more recently been covered by World Net Daily HERE and HEREand the Tea Party News Network, HERE.


Then came our initial call to Congress to investigate twitter, since it has private business oversight authority, and if the need is serious, they will act. HERE. With 250 million users, continual reports of conservatives  being harassed, cyber-bullied  and threatened is serious. Nationally serious.

And then, when things simply appeared outrageous in terms of the way Twitter was applying their own user riles unfairly, seemingly because of political prejudice, came our challenge to Twitter and it's so-called Chief of Security, Delbius Harvey, to explain why conservatives are suspended and those who attack them are allowed to run wild on their social network. HERE

In researching this last one, I began to seriously wonder, "Why would anyone hire or promote Delbius Harvey for or to that position?" She has no prior security background and indeed before Twitter appears to have no work history at all except for what was initially a small "club" of sorts called  "Perverted Justice", which spent their evenings trolling for pedophiles online for fun and, eventually, profit (literally). Could it be, we here wondered, that Harvey was not hired in spite of her slim resume that amounts to basically trolling and humiliating online pedophiles, but, indeed, because of it? Were those qualities of trolling and the humiliation of targeted individuals what Twitter was actually looking for, so that that person could implement similar strategies not, this time, to pedophiles, but to political conservatives?

That's a cynical idea to be sure - a real nightmare. Such a company would have to be populated at the highest level by probably younger people and really be ultra-hard-core activist left wing democrats in a big way for that to be possible. If true, the need for a congressional investigation would need to be immediate, because that would mean, right here in the US, there is a propaganda juggernaut hiding their false flag ops among a crowd of 250 million and engaging willfully in any number of crimes by the thousands every day on a mind-blowing scale, from cyber-bullying, to harassment, to death threats. On Twitter we have endured all three, and while our accounts have been suspended by Harvey and/or her staff for the slimmest of violations, if any, the people who did those things to us have not been suspended, and after all the media about it, Harvey must know it by now, since we tweeted the articles to her ourselves. And we are by means whatsoever alone.


Here's the shock: It seems that Twitter is indeed comprised of exactly the, presumably, IMO, hard-core activist leftists who would be needed in executive positions for such a theory to be potentially borne out. By activist leftists I don't mean people who still have faded Obama bumper stickers on their cars.

  
It is fast becoming my opinion that when it comes to cyber-bullying and suspensions, Twitter's part in those horrendous activities does not appear to be accidental, but organized and deliberate, and carried out by employees on a daily basis.

Remember, as you read this, also, that Reuters reported that Obama deployed a "Twitter Army" ...


of what Reuters reported amounts to basically online propagandists engaged in "public shaming", seemingly following the instructions of Cass Sunstein*.

The question we have, then, given the way Del Harvey and her crew appear to be suspending conservatives and giving those who cyber-bully and humiliate and threaten conservatives a free pass, is, "Is Obama's Twitter army recruited from without, or is it already structured and put in place among Twitter's 1,300 workers?" At this point we feel that it's an absolutely legitimate question. And it needs to be investigated by Congress before, not after, that hypothetical propaganda structure effects the 2014 midterm elections this November, aside from the basically humanitarian and first amendment concerns involved.

HERE FOR YOUR EDUCATION AND CONSIDERATION ARE THE TWITTER EXECS on the Twitter website page that lists the executives (and a couple past and unmentioned). None have been excluded - we did not cherry-pick the politically active liberals for effect. This is the list and, via our research of public material, their political leaning and connections to Obama, in, what we believe is for the first time, one nice, neat little collection.



SCROLL TO THE SENTENCES IN RED TO CUT TO THE CHASE ON EACH TWITTER EXECUTIVE :



BIZ STONE
Stone was a co-founder, and though he has left, he gave one suggestion to them via the media: "Maybe the Twitter of the future will have an entire news department dedicated to verifying the truthfulness of the Tweets. It could have another department just for fun, for chatting."

In other words, as we read it, play God and edit and censor what Twitter users say about the news - and that includes politics.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/mediatechnologyandtelecoms/digital-media/10915667/Twitter-has-got-to-change-says-co-founder-Biz-Stone.html

Couple that with Stone joining ultra-left Huffington Post while still at Twitter to "...advise The Huffington Post Media Group and all of AOL on social impact and cause-based initiatives, develop a platform to facilitate people doing service in their communities...."

Thois translates to us in context as "helping liberal politicians on online social platforms" 
http://www.techdigest.tv/2011/03/aol-owned_huffi.html




JACK DORSEY
Another co-founder of Twitter, assuming various top leadership roles including CEO. 
"Twitter subtly reveals political inclinations by including quite a few liberal-leaning moments in Twitter history. For example, the video mentions the Egyptian revolution of 2011 and the most retweeted post of all time, which was a photo of President Obama hugging the First Lady with the caption “Four more years,” as significant moments in the company’s history."
http://www.politisite.com/2013/03/21/happy-7th-birthday-twitter-hints-the-bird-is-liberal/
"The Twitter town hall focused on Obama's work in creating jobs and fixing the economy. Users asked their 140-character questions with the hashtag #askobama, and a pre-selected team of "seasoned Twitter users" handpicked the best #askobama tweets for the president to answer. Tough questions were in short supply, though, as the moderator of the town hall was Jack Dorsey, Twitter co-founder and close friend of the administration." -Newsbusters

Dorsey was a keynote speaker at the National Democratic Institute 30th anniversay dinner, a hotbed of rabid leftists of clout.

EVAN WILLIAMS

Williams is included here because of being important to Twitter's history but so far is reading politically neutral to us as far as public information goes




DICK COSTELO, Twitter CEO
New CEO flew to Japan to help newly-elected liberal Japanese President to - apparently -help with his politics via Twitter
http://www.futuristicblogger.com/2013/03/twitter-ceo-dick-costolo-in-tokyo-japan.html
 "We have to leverage our critical mass of publishers to create network effects," he says. As an example, Costolo cites plans to allow publishers in the network to form "affinity groups" by blending their feeds together. He mentions the possibility that Daily Kos, Talking Points Memo, and a handful of other popular liberal political blogs might offer a joint feed--leading lefty readers to subscribe to that feed rather than to each individually. "Then the incentive for all of them would be high to stay in FeedBurner," Costolo says, "because as part of the liberal politics feed, they'd be reaching more people than they would on their own."
http://www.money.cnn.com/magazines/business2/business2_archive/2006/07/01/8380238/index.htm

Here, like Dorsey, is a key player at Twitter, at the very, very top, who is directly involved with the Obama administration while continuing at Twitter.

"Last night, President Obama announced that he will name Costolo to the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC). Costolo has been CEO of Twitter since October, when he took over from co-founder Evan Williams." 
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/27/twitter-ceo-dick-costolo_n_868015.html

Bear in mind we're not skipping anyone on Twitter's own list of top executives at twitter or in any other way cherry-picking certain Twitter executives for effect; this is how all the top people engage politics.






Gabriel Stricker, Chief Communications Officer
First off, in context, we'd like to know what the seeming hiding-in-plain-sight self-description of "Information Democratizer" means for the Chief Communications Officer. IMO, some of these people are arrogant to the point of cute, and in-context to the all the conservative abuse, appear to put their biases and prejudices up as a point of pride for everyone else at the company who seem to be in lock-step with the leftist traditions of the city in which they work. 

On the occasion of it's 8th birthday, Strickler posted to twitter's blog a notification of the occasion and then posted a list of first Tweets to mark the occasion, and the list is a who's who of liberal celebrities and politicians, including Obama, Hillary Clinton, very long-forgotten Madeleine Albright  and a long list of hard-core left celebrities including Oprah Winfrey. Notable conservative celebs and politicians just to, you know, let everyone know they are being fair? None. From Twitter's own blog: 

https://blog.twitter.com/2014/on-twitters-8th-birthday-find-your-first-tweet



Katie Stanton, Twitter media chief
"Previously at Yahoo and Google, Stanton also worked for the White House under President Obama and the State Department under Hilary Clinton. She has been at Twitter for four years, having moved from its San Francisco headquarters last year to spearhead expansion efforts for the company overseas. The new post will mean she is returning from Paris to San Francisco.

Stanton doesn't have the kind of media-heavy resume you might expect from someone in her new role. Prior to a stint at Yahoo Finance that ended in 2002, she did a six-year stint at Google that included roles at Google Finance and OpenSocial. She joined the Obama Administration in 2009 as director of citizen participation, which made the White House a more Web-friendly destination for voters. She segued a year later to the State Department as a special officer in its office of innovation, leaving for Twitter in 2010."


As you see, Twitter, IMO is beginning to look not like a publicly traded corporation, but like Obama's own personal propaganda social platform disguised as a micro-blogging service. In context, it's funny how Reuters reported that Obama was deploying a Twitter Army, and not a Google or Facebook army.

Mike Gupta, Chief Financial Officer
Public info on Gupta reads politically neutral, so far.



Vijaya Gadde, General Counsel
Twitter's top lawyer has apparently been a regular Obama campaign donor since 2008. Surprised? Bear in mind that she was from New Jersey and many others are likewise from around the country, so it isn't like Twitter is recruiting its execs from the local Bay Area liberal workforce. In our opinion, you have to vet your job candidates' political views pretty aggressively to get a top-brass from all around the nation who, once under one roof, uniformly appear so strongly devoted to left-wing politics.
http://individual-contributors.findthebest.com/d/c/Vijaya-Gadde

Bt the way, here's a list that came up with Gadde of 25 of Twitter's campaign donors, only one of which is a Republican and he does not appear to work at the San Francisco main office. Twitter admitted recently that it has a diversity problem - yes it does! IMO everyone appears to be a hard-core activist/leftist.

http://individual-contributors.findthebest.com/d/b/Twitter


Daniel Graf, Vice President of Product
Reads as neutral so far. No political info could be found




Adam Bain, President of Global Revenue
These were the only politically-themed tweets we could find for Bain in the last 12 months of Twitter for which he is President of Global revenue. These four, only. No left-leaning appearance here, right?







Colin Crowell, Vice President, Global Public Policy
Part of his history, as reported at the Washington Post, "He spent two decades as a legislative aide to Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and worked on the Telecom Act of 1996 and other communications legislation."
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-tech/post/twitter-hires-hill-fcc-veteran-crowell-to-head-global-policy/2011/08/29/gIQAsXAYnJ_blog.html

And.... what?! We're still looking deeper into whatever this is and if it's legit:

http://www.kavkazcenter.com/eng/content/2014/06/23/19287.shtml

And while the following is not political, it does, IMO, suggest that the corporate mindset at twitter is self-cenmtric to the point that it took tax breaks from the city and used the majority of those tax breaks to party, and that sounds, IMO, like the kind of mindset that perhaps also would not care, and might even prefer, if conseravatives, who are nowhere near management's own socio-political universe, are cyber-bullied and routinly suspended while those who torment them run free all over the site:

http://www.buzzfeed.com/justinesharrock/the-twitter-documents-you-didnt-hear-about-last-night



Brian “Skip” Schipper, Vice President of Human Resources
Another person whose name came up in a general search as a democrat contributor. You know, not everyone who votes democrat is into it enough to donate.  See a pattern at Twitter?
http://littlesis.org/person/97243/Brian_Schipper/political
Contributions to to Chuck Schumer, Patrick Murphy and Howard Dean, who are in our opinion truly aggressive, extremist left-wing democrats, and you quite possibly share that opinion.
More
http://www.primarypost.com/fec/2004/2343511/BRIAN-SCHIPPER/19-Twin-Pond-Ln-WHITE-PLAINS-NY-10607

Twitter: "Skip is responsible for leading the human resources team at Twitter, including setting the strategy and delivering the support to make Twitter the best company to work for."


In other words, as we read it, this guy who donates to aggressive liberal extremists like Schumer and Howard Dean is more or less the guy who is in charge of hiring people at Twitter, which is run by people, a couple of which are intimately involved in Obama's White House. 




AND THAT IS THE END OF THE LIST OF EXECUTIVES OFF THE TWITTER PAGE LISTING TWITTER EXECUTIVES. Get the picture?

And check out Twitter Execs' seeming drooling over having Hillary "What difference does it make" Clinton stop by for a Q&A. Any indication that Twitter will bring in a conservative politician who was not Secretary of State when Ambassador Stevens and 3 others were murdered in Benghazi and then lied about the cause of the murders? Not so far as we can tell: CLICK HERE

It may not be fair to bring this up because a party is a party, but contrasting how conservatives are  grossly mistreated on Twitter while Twitter's admins, IMO, employ a nightmarish double-standard to the proceedings, and the sense of total abandon demonstrated, IMO, in pictures of a Twitter party put on by Execs, needs to be at least a vaguely regarded consideration in this discussion. I'm sure these are good people, and all young adults party in one way or another. But the contrast between extremely concerned conservative patriots being so horrendously treated daily on Twitter and this kind of, IMO, irresponsible, wild-party atmosphere at an event hosted in 2011 by then-top Twitter executives Jason Goldman, Ev Williams and Biz Stone strikes me as relevant to the issue. I suppose the best way to articulate what bothers is me is to say if Twitter employees put half as much energy into ensuring that coservatives were treated fairly on Twitter as they seem to be expending at this party, then this blog memo would not have needed to be written at all:



The story at Business Insider, HERE.

 Concerned and well-meaning Conservatives have been cyber-bullied, stalked, had their  personal addresses given out with maps on how to get there, been subjected to barely-veiled death threats and harassed all to the apparent consent of Twitter safety and security. That's not "in my opinion". That's fact because that's a very short list of abuses to which members of the Fire Ants have been subjected; behavior which was witnessed and reported by legitimate objective media, and the Twitter accounts of the people who committed those acts, incredibly, remain active and unimpeded despite repeated complaints to Harvey and Twitter security. Those are mostly criminal charges and if Twitter is complicit then the corporation itself, IMO, shares the blame and IMO as a corporate entity should share the legal penalty. This is not fun and games, anymore, and the degree to which Twitter appears actively complicit - IMO and that of many others - deserves not more than a cursory glance to see that obvious complicity.

We will continue to communicate and work with congressional offices, and now with the facts that the top Twitter brass is ensconced cozily with Obama's White House and the general political left in one neat little package, we expect GOP Reps to share yet even more fully the same opinion we do; that the wholesale, sometimes criminal, abuse of conservatives on Twitter is no accident.


Why all these dots, hiding in plain sight, have not been connected by some media outlet or blog up until this moment, I cannot say. But IMO it's a few years overdue and the right-serving media needs to get a lot more aggressive; it should not have taken up until this point and this blog to point out the degree to which Twitter's top brass is tied into Obama's political machinery and investigate the resulting obvious opinions regarding the suspension and wholesale abuse of conservatives on Twitter in that context, and we challenge all conservative media and pundits to cover it. They can even pretend that it was their idea, if they want, just as long as they do it.  


You, Dear Reader, however, can do the biggest and best job of all and it's easy. Contact your local congressional representative by phone and/or on TWITTER, itself, today and say, "I want a House Investigation of Twitter and I want it now!"  



* "Cass Sunstein has long been one of Barack Obama’s closest confidants.  Often mentioned as a likely Obama nominee to the Supreme Court, Sunstein was Obama’s head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs where, among other things, he is responsible for “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs.”
"Sunstein advocates that the Government’s stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups.”  He also proposes that the Government make secret payments to so-called “independent” credible voices to bolster the Government’s messaging (on the ground that those who don’t believe government sources will be more inclined to listen to those who appear independent while secretly acting on behalf of the Government).   This program would target those advocating false “conspiracy theories,” which they define to mean: “an attempt to explain an event or practice by reference to the machinations of powerful people, who have also managed to conceal their role.”

TPFA DEMANDS AN APOLOGY FROM HARRIET BALDWIN & HER PALS; ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

EDIT: UNBELIEVABLE RESPONSE FROM HARRIET BALDWIN. SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE

As we start to move out of summer and into campaign season, it's pretty important that the Tea Party tighten up, mobilize and get more active. That is really what the Tea Party Fire Ants are all about. Despite the formation of a Select Committee, which we are extremely proud to be able to say we were fundamentally helpful in helping to bring about (you know the story), Benghazi remains our primary focus because it's such a mind-blower that it has the chops as an issue to send the democrats politically back to the stone age in November, and with the media behind the left, the right must not miss any opportunity such as this. Considering death occurred in Benghazi, that may sound overly-political to some, I know, but I, for one, have moved past my heartbreak for the loss of the four Americans, now, and am much more firmly focused on the missing Benghazi survivor witnesses; any Administration which would do everything it seemingly can to keep witnesses from testifying to the murder of its own Ambassador (and even one of our congressional heroes, Rep Frank Wolf, acknowledges that Obama's Administration is silencing the witnesses) deserves whatever political hardship befalls it in November, and the democrats who supported that administration deserve, IMO, to share that political hardship. It's terrible and alarming leadership, and leadership that bad is certain to ruin millions of lives (indeed, on a different issue but as a solid  barometer, look at the current economy).

This brings us back to an issue we cannot ignore but wish we could: the internet trolls; subversive leftist internet agents - ranging in styles and techniques from socialist Dr No's to Marxist Mata-Hari's - pretending to be conservative and gaining cred among their victims by passionately shouting the proper, harmless-to-Obama political red meat while defaming and destroying effective conservatives and conservative groups from the inside. Jack Cashill in World Net Daily reminds us that that us simply a variation of an old Communist trick, and our own Sergeant Major has written on this blog about false flag operations, similar to what is encountered in battle - one side raising the flag of the opposition and then gunning them down when they get close.  Subversive trolls  are fact, not imagination. You know the drill and if you read here regularly you know the Tea Party Fire Ant fight with trolls has now been covered - favoring the TPFA - twice in World Net Daily 
http://www.wnd.com/2014/05/how-twitter-empowers-liberal-trolls/
http://www.wnd.com/2014/06/hidden-war-rages-over-your-own-words/
and now also in the truly hugely-followed Tea Party News Network. 
http://www.tpnn.com/2014/07/22/is-twitter-banning-conservatives-because-of-leftist-bias/
As of this writing their latest story about us has over 4,500 Facebook shares alone. That's shares, not views. If the Share numbers translate the same way Twitter Retweets do, that's way over 20 million times that the story headline has been or will be seen. People care about this issue. It's important.


The troll situation admittedly is now much-improved due to places like WND and TPNN (and this blog on a very considerably more modest level) shining public light onto troll ops and forcing the trolls into a far less aggressive posture. As you know the Fire Ants are in nearly continuous communication with congressional offices, who are preparing a congressional investigation of Twitter, as well as regular contact with the Ohio Attorney General's office who are expanding their investigation of a criminal forgery of a forged letter from the Ohio AG's office meant to be sent to Kathy which the trolls were mocking before Kathy even knew about it (so some were plainly in on the forgery or at least knowledge of it from the source). Additional investigations are likely to expand very quickly in less than a week due to a situation of which I cannot speak at present, but we will give it to you asap when we can.

Still, there is more we - you and I and our conservative friends, associates and allies - can do on social media. To do it we need to speak plainly and cut the delicate chat. In my opinion, and the last I looked I was still entitled to an opinion in the United States, so-called conservative 'leader" Harriet Baldwin has proven herself to be a very central controlling authority among the leftist operatives, and if she isn't, then someone please explain to me why she behaves as she does, because IMO she has all the earmarks. IMO she very plainly gives out directives to trolls, calms the rattled nerves of upset trolls, assures trolls and often speaks in apparent-intentionally vulgar and foul-mouthed ways to IMO clearly embolden trolls and put their victim's associates and friends, who would otherwise defend the victims, into a fearful mindset in which they decline to defend the victim, simply because some of what she says sounds so, in my opinion, psychotically aggressive that they don't want to draw Harriet's horrendous fire, (which, in my experience/opinion, BTW, is totally without teeth at the end of the day).

There are plenty of examples of Harriet volunteering these kinds of things unprovoked, but to me this is the representative poster child which IMO encapsulates all her all-too-common negatives into one quick little package, shown with variation (Harriet seemed to really like this one):
 

It's an insult, it demeans, it's vulgar, it's foul-mouthed and it appears to be a directive someone is supposed to obey and carry out.

Now let's speak plainly on the flip side of the coin, about the Tea Party Fire Ants. Anyone at this point who knows our history and says that TPFA is anything but a dedicated conservative activist group, in my opinion, needs very serious psychiatric care, or they are just malicious and agenda-motivated liars. A quick checklist of TPFA's activities of which Harriet, I am sure, is well-aware: 

1. Benghazi is the worst of all political situations for Obama, and we worked hard to take Wolf's HRes36 for a Benghazi select committee (the same kind of thing that would have gotten Nixon impeached had he not resigned first) from 35 co-sponsors to 190 co-sponsors via a daily, 18-month Twitter campaign, hence the 3 thank you-letters from Wolf (more about that in a moment).
http://www.teapartyfireants.net/benghazi-1.html

2. A similar campaign for GOP Rep Tom Rice's HRes442, to take Obama to court (yeah, leftist trolls really want something like that, right?), hence Boehner's version of the same.
http://www.teapartyfireants.net/hres442-1.html

3. The only successful boycott of Fox news in that network's history, demanding Fox News report more aggressively about Obama's scandals (I wonder what our supposed 'subversive, leftist' end game was supposed to be when we did that one?! Eyeroll)
http://www.teapartyfireants.net/fox-boycott.html


4. Working with Overpasses and local TPFA boots-on-the-ground groups now being created to more heavily advertise to the mainstream voter Obama's scandals.
http://www.teapartyfireants.net/activism.html


5. Pro conservative, anti-Obama Videos, including the latest, an elaborate 5-minute stereoscopic video (which earned a story and a great review in Tea Party News Network and Tea Party.org) which calls out Obama's most horrendous scandals in visual metaphors using George Orwell's "1984" as a theme.
http://www.tpnn.com/2014/07/04/orwells-obama-first-ever-3d-political-video-details-obamas-tyranny-in-amazing-graphics/

6. Countless other less elaborate activism and conservative successes.

Yet Harriet Baldwin, whose Conservative achievements have yet to be explained to me besides having many Twitter followers (which can be easily bought online),  calls us "Worthless", Crap-stirrers", "Twitter shadow Group", "Alinski progressives", "Enemies of the Tea Party" and, of course, among many more, "Totally pathetic F'ing A-holes" and asks other people to call us that was well. The dichotomy between our conservative actions which are now beyond reproach and Harriet Baldwin's vulgar, scatological epithets against us are now taking on a degree of surrealism that would make Salvator Dali green with envy. Therefore, I have no choice but to come to the conclusion that, no matter how well she has worked herself into minor but ensconced areas of the Tea Party, that in my opinion Harriet Baldwin is absolutely, positively, one-hundred-percent a subversive  liberal left-wing activist of the most poisonous, manipulative variety. (and oh yes, when Jack Cashill, phd, of three books which crack Amazon's top ten and writes for Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Weekly Standard, AmericanThinker; Leo Hohmann of World Net Daily; and Matthew Burke at Tea Party News Network covered the Tea Party Fire Ants favorably, Harriet's unaccomplished, otherwise-nobody co-activists actually attacked, on Twitter, often, those writers and extremely accomplished journalistic institutions.

When different leaders of Tea Party groups disagree, to my knowledge one group does not request that people regard the other group as "totally pathetic F'ing A-Holes" and "Alinski progressives". IMO that's just loud-mouthed conservative red meat to turn whoever can be influenced against the effective Tea Party group being attacked, and that is the very epitome - the dictionary definition - of the very hard-core leftist troll.

But one of the worst attacks, frankly because TPFA worked so hard to get the job done which earned the praise, were the troll attacks against the three (that's right, three) letters of thanks from Congressional House Representative Frank Wolf. With no basis in fact whatsoever, not even qualifying the accusations as opinions, Harriet and pals categorically declared as statements of fact that the letters from Wolf that we posted were fakes. Some people innocently stepped up to the plate, like this girl....


... and Harriet's brutal apparent close pals figuratively, but only barely figuratively, tore her to pieces. The problem was not that she got involved, the problem is that trolls manifest being so horrendously brutal that not enough people came to her defense, and that kind of sitting-on-the-sidelines when fellow conservatives are under attack has to stop.

Then World Net Daily dealt the trolls a pretty severe blow by any normal human standard. They called Wolf's office and reported....

In the past few days I have tried something novel by internet standards: I informed Harriet and her pals that we await her and her pals to issue an apology to the Tea Party Fire Ants and, Kathy and, yes, myself, for accusing us of a criminal forgery after Wolf's office confirmed the letters were genuine (though they had no right to categorically declare it as such regardless). They have since responded to the expectation of an apology by them as only they could; they are behaving as though my demand for an apology is aggressive action against them:
 

You can see them only yesterday still attacking TPNN and alarmingly, Harriet says "@Delbius knows", as though this is all very cozy between them. If you read here regularly you know Delbius (apparent aka Alison Shea) is Twitter's euphemistic "chief of security", whom we have challenged to justify the suspension of Kathy's main account while Harvey and company allow outrageously  aggressive trolls to run wild.
http://www.tpnn.com/2014/07/22/is-twitter-banning-conservatives-because-of-leftist-bias/
In our opinion, this cozy remark by Baldwin about Delbius only makes Delbius look even more complicit in these extremely inappropriate behaviors (including apparent criminal cyber-bullying) and actions on Twitter, where Delbius Harvey is supposedly safeguarding the users against exactly this same kind of action.

So what can be done? Well, I have an idea. Since Harriet often calls for others to do certain things which IMO are extremely negative, I will make a positive request of you - and everyone - and don't be afraid of "the trolls" because there is safety in numbers and we have your back: you, too, please demand that Harriet and her pals issue an apology to the Tea Party Fire Ants and Kathy Amidon and Proe Graphique (me). Any normal person, IMO, would make the apology without fuss and one assumes with a tad of embarrassment over so gross an accusation as they made which turned out to be entirely false (and repeatedly falsely accusing people of criminal conduct on a public forum of 250 million daily users is pretty damn serious). The more people ask for the apology and the more those being asked for an apology act put-upon by the request/demand and refuse, the more headway we will make, IMO, of separating the counter-productive aggressors from the wholly productive and optimistic Tea Party conservatives. Demanding an apology for something as gross as their accusations (which went on for months), IMO, is not harassment, or defamation or anything else. In my opinion, it is simply entirely fair in a normal, free society and more than just a little well-deserved.

If we are all Tea Party, then we are unified, and if we are unified, it only makes sense to come to each others' aid. In this case, the aid serves many extremely important functions to the Tea party as a whole: it puts people on notice to know their facts; it puts people on notice that their 'targets" are not without the same support that those who take aim at them appear to have; and we can start to clear the air - and maybe quickly finish the job - as to who stands where regarding conservatism and that needs to be done fast, because if these people are as I believe in my opinion - hard-core leftist operatives making significant inroads into the Tea Party to destroy it - then they must be driven back and out of any influence among conservatives. If I am wrong and IMO some seemingly impossible way Harriet and her tight group really actually are Tea Party conservatives by some definition of which I am entirely unaware, then demanding an apology from them lets these people who have voluntarily chosen to be limited public figures know that the rest of the Tea Party won't stand by and watch attacks like these be made against some of their own. 

We're using this graphic, below. You have our permission to use it, also. Make sure your comments do not slide down the same vulgar path that, IMO, Harriet Baldwin uses, because trolls will ignore her communication style and attack you for yours. Be firm but polite. In other words, be a strong conservative doing the right thing, and don't run from their attacks; IMO that kind of thing has to stop if we don't want that kind of aggression to rule the roost. Politely demanding an apology is fair, and will force them to act one way or the other, or prove themselves by their lack of action. These kinds of relentless attacks against conservatives have to stop, regardless of who is doing the attacking.



*********************************************
EDIT: As we are wont to say at Benghazi-Truth, "Curiouser and curiouser, said Alice." IMO, reading a response like this from Harriet Baldwin, someone who has made such vulgar attacks, absolutely qualifies as a falling-through-the-looking-glass experience.



What is one to make of this? She accused us of creating fake letters from Congressmen, appears to indulge others who volunteer the same accusations, and when the reliable conservative news source (a giant for Conservatives, really) World Net Daily confirms via Congressman Wolf's office that the group Harriet has been attacking is legit and the thank you letters from the Congressmen are genuine, when pressed for an apology, this so-called "conservative leader" posts a response like this?! She blows off the demand with an, IMO, arrogant dismissiveness like some Uber Queen Bee, and then appears to implicate Twitter administration in the spamblocking of individual users she doesn't like?! Are you kidding?! By the way, I have had two accounts, @TP_Fire_Ants and the recently un-suspended and soon-to-be-retired @FrankMDavisJR, the latter of which had been suspended by Twitter admins for so long - over 6 months - that the relationships built on it have evaporated (IMO, that was the intended plan among those at Twitter admin I feel certain are in on the censorship of conservatives game. Cute, eh? Adorable. Indeed, for all we know, this may be why Twitter was created in the first place)

So Harriet refused to even acknowledge in any way that she had wronged people. Not just Kathy and I, but by making the false, defamatory accusation as a declarative  statement), basically, IMO, defamed all the TPFA members, contributors and friends by implicating that they supported such endeavors. On their behalf, then, as well, we are going to keep pressing Harriet for an apology, and we're going to press for it hard. IMO, it's difficult to have sympathy for someone who speaks and behaves like that. 


The Tea Party needs to be unified, and since Harriet voluntarily started this war, unprovoked,  with TPFA, and said the, IMO, truly vile things she did, she needs to be pressed for an apology so people can see this situation play out, and therefore judge for themselves where they feel she should stand, if anywhere aside from a, IMO, pariah, in terms of influencing the Tea Party and its direction. As stated, it is my personal opinion that she is one of the leftist troll leaders, worked into place over time and possibly supported by a larger operation to bring down the Tea Party from the inside (I remain uneducated as to any actual accomplishment she can claim for herself). We work with other groups and IMO the idea that any would even consider for a slimmest moment emulating Harriet's example as reported on this page is absolutely inconceivable.


Further, as we saw again last night, Harriet's pals continue to chase us around Twitter and try to  discredit us to GOP lawmakers when we press those GOP lawmakers to further the conservative cause, and this kind of thing cannot just be let go and left unresolved. We will continue to press Harriet and her pals for an apology and see where this winds up because, frankly, IMO, we deserve an apology and it needs to be repeated and it needs to be contrite and sincere as well, or, IMO, people seriously need to walk away from Harriet as any kind of conservative authority, regardless of any legit or constructed  conservative  reputation, because something is plainly just not right with what we see going on here - that's obvious. 


Oh, and regarding her pals using multiple accounts when caught being naughty, apparently so as to  continue to attack TPFA with supposedly less of a trail back to the central operators, it isn't working; the writing styles of who is whom in the multiple accounts us so obvious they could be recognized by a grade school student.

AND WHERE IS DELBIUS HARVEY, TWITTER'S SO-CALLED CHIEF OF SAFETY AND SECURITY? In my opinion only, she is wherever one happens to be when working directly with the trolls themselves against activist conservatives availing themselves of their first amendment rights on Twitter; IMO re-living glory days of her apparent only job ever held before joining Twitter: trolling and humiliating pedophiles for fun and profit with the resultant occasional suicide, only with conservatives  instead of pedophiles now the target of censorship, cyber-bullying and online humiliation.

Indeed, it is my growing suspicion (only an opinion, but becoming very firmly held) that it is exactly  those  qualities Twitter execs sought and why they would hire and promote someone with so slim and controversial a resume as Del Harvey's; IMO to get someone into that job not to protect people, but to do exactly the thing most prominent, apparently, on Harvey's prior resume: trolling, bullying and humiliating  people online - people, in this case, the leftist San Francisco-based Twitter would disagree with socially and politically. If true, that would make Twitter, with 250 million users, a massive criminal  cyber-bullying operation against conservatives that would utterly dwarf any such oppressive anti-free-speech operation ever seen in world history. It's only my opinion, but in my opinion, when you add it all up, it's the only thing that does add up. And harrassing and cyber-bullying conservatives while pretending to be one also appears to be, IMO, what Harriet Baldwin  seems to be up to, as well, and would explain, IMO, why Baldwin started this part-time vulgar-mouthed crusade against the Tea Party Fire Ants seeming out of the clear blue sky. It all fits together, too, too well.... in my opinion.

Speaking of which, by the way, it looks like TPFA has yet another  Congressperson on board the GOP House investigation of Twitter abuses. Stay tuned.

WE ASK TWITTER, WHY HAS KATHY AMIDON BEEN PERMANENTLY SUSPENDED WHILE OTHERS RUN WILD?

Those of you who read this blog regularly know that we have had no choice but to make an issue of the antagonistic "trolls" who have gone way out of their way, many all day long every day for months, to attack the Tea Party Fire Ants, the group which runs this blog. It may be Benghazi Truth, but it's tough to get the truth out, or even have a halfway meaningful short discussion, when you have a small but relentless group of highly inflammatory people claiming to be conservatives defaming, insulting and goading you all day long, every day. Well-known and well-read World Net Daily published not one but two recent articles about it.

The "trolls" have significantly curtailed their antagonistic rhetoric since those articles and also because they, IMO, incriminated themselves by making a big deal about something no one knew about - even Kathy - and that is a supposed letter from the Ohio Attorney general....
... sent to a friend of Kathy's apparently by mistake, and Ohio, as I understand it, with nothing on record about Kathy in any department, believes that a criminal forgery was created and sent to Kathy (received by her friend) and Ohio now has detectives investigating (see our blog about "defamation").

At the core of both World Net Daily articles is the fact that TPFA Twitter swarm leader and TPFA co-leader Kathy Amidon had her account suspended by Twitter without reasonable explanation, along with my account of Frank M Davis. It is our opinion also that Twitter administration appears complicit in the trolling, especially since a certain Kate Beecham who was trolling us and supplying art voluntarily to those antagonizing us unprovoked claims to have previously worked at Twitter, which IMO in-context suggests the culture within the walls at Twitter, and that explains a lot. 

WND saw the trolls in action as the trolls called to Twitter chief of safety and security, Delbius Harvey, to do what they wanted as though speaking to an old friend.

The idea that Twitter is complicit in trolling and cyber-bullying (a crime) IMO appears to be really now borne out by this positively outrageous e-mail from Twitter "Safety and security" on June 26, a few days ago, after Kathy's account with 6,000 followers had already been suspended for many months:




When Kathy wrote back to appeal, they had already closed the case, thank you:

IMO, it appears that since the trolls had to curtail their level of attack after the WND articles, Twitter "balanced" the situation by permanently  removing from Kathy her 6,000 followers, leaving her with a current account of a few hundred with whom she can promote her political viewpoints via her 1st Amendment rights. IMO, the whole thing reeks of an inside job at Twitter of gross and horrendous abuse of power - and of kathy - across the board.

So here is our challenge to Twitter and specifically, Twitter safety and security chief Miss Delbius Harvey, whom, after being written about in not terribly complimentary terms by World Net Daily, and IMO, rightfully so, must certainly be aware of the situation regarding kathy's account:

PROVE KATHY BROKE THE RULES OF TWITTER IN A WAY WHICH IS WORSE THAN THE FOLLOWING ILLUSTRATIONS OF TWITTER CONDUCT - BY PEOPLE WHOSE ACCOUNTS YOU KEEP OPEN DESPITE AN ENDLESS SERIES OF COMPLAINTS AGAINST THEM. THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ATTACKED, THREATENED AND DEFAMED KATHY EVERY DAY FLOURISH WHILE KATHY'S ACCOUNT  IS PERMANENTLY SUSPENDED? IT'S NOT A RHETORICAL QUESTION. WE WANT AN ANSWER. WHY?

#WhyKathy?


Let's go through a few Tweets by others as an illustration of the point. 

I thought antagonizing people was against Twitter rules. Here's Harriet Baldwin speaking her mind in a way entirely representative of how she has usually spoken of Kathy, myself and the Tea Party Fire Ants. What has Kathy said that is as, IMO, bad as some of these things, and what volume of tweets did Kathy put forth that contained them, as these contain the following?


(I was never visited by the FBI. IMO, that's true defamation)

Here is, Harriet, IMO, inciting people to act negatively against others. Is this part of Twitter's good behavior and do you have an example of Kathy doing likewise - or anything as bad? And if it is not part of Twitter policy, why has Kathy Amidon had her account  permanently suspended while Harriet flourishes, Tweeting things like this?


Harriet, to my knowledge, has never provided any evidence for that last claim, by the way, made nearly a year ago. 


I also thought that enjoying maliciously antagonizing people, as IMO appears to be the case here, was also something Twitter presumably frowned upon. Why after all this is Harriet's account allowed to continue if Kathy "broke the rules"?


If you check the timelines, you will see that HoneyGee, a Tea Party Fire Ant activist, said nothing to provoke this gross attack and insult.


So we ask Twitter and Delbius Harvey, where are the tweets by Kathy Amidon that are worse than these, above, that Kathy should just now receive an e-mail of permanent suspension  while Harriet plows merrily along as illustrated above if there is no bias on the part of Twitter "Safety and Security"?


Here is the aforementioned "Boss Hogg". I thought spamblocking people as an action to have people suspended was against the rules. Why has Hogg not also been permanently suspended, like twitter security did to kathy Amidon??


(We disagreed with him after he and Harriet attacked us first, but never 'slandered" him, but that doesn't seem to matter any more than Harriet's claim that I somehow got him suspended which was impossible for me to do, anyway. As regular readers know, I think the explanation Twitter offered for trolls suspending people by exploiting a spamblock feature is bull. IMO that was only a confusing excuse to cover acts of political prejudice within the ranks of the leftist San Francisco-based Twitter safety and security itself, who, IMO, are deeply involved in, if not at the operational core of, the attacks against  conservatives on Twitter; IMO silencing effective conservative voices and allowing trolls to threaten, cyber-bully and humiliate conservatives appears to be Twitter's idea of "policing", and Congress will soon investigate, thanks to TPFA)

Can it be that Hogg has friends inside Twitter.... could he or others be former members of the "Perverted Justice" which some law enforcement people called a vigilante group of which Delbius Harvey was not only once a part, but it appears to have been her only job before joining Twitter? (something Twitter execs need to be asked about when Congress starts an investigation)

And speaking of Spamblocking, here is Hyperion, from about the same time, nearly a year ago, calling for the spamblocking of people - me, in particular (I guess she doesn't like the fact that we were working toward, and helped to achieve, a Benghazi Select Committee, as Rep Wolf's office has stated and World Net Daily confirmed). Why is Kathy permanently suspended and this person flourishing if Twitter does not harbor a prejudice against Kathy? (By the way, the people reading this are not stupid, so you better think up some pretty good answers and not the usual "clever" wise guy hairsplitting we often see on Twitter)




Here is Clarence Silkwow, already  established in the opinion of others as a severe aggressor....





.... and Clarence says things like this, which if they are not against the rules, suggests that Twitter has a great reason for permanently suspending Kathy, whose only transgression appears to have been helping to expose the troll abuses on Twitter...

You know, by this point I had stopped looping Clarence into my tweets in rebuttal because it invariably meant gulag by "unbiased' Twitter. I thought volunteering this kind of harassment unprovoked was called cyber-bullying, and it is a very serious criminal offense? Is that what Twitter fosters? Serious criminal offenses? IMO at this point that is a very legit and serious question.






I get the feeling that if any TPFA volunteered remarks like this to any of the people, above - all of whom appear very closely associated on Twitter, BTW, as you can see - they would be suspended like Kathy was suspended. So where are the remarks by Kathy which are much worse than those, since Clarence flourishes, his antagonism everywhere, and Kathy is suspended for..... what?

Everyone knows that giving out unlisted, private personal information is very much against Twitter rules and the internet in general, especially when done for apparently malicious purposes....



... and apparent not-so-veiled death threats, as reported in World Net Daily, are absolutely against Twitter rules, and the law...



Yet Stan Hjerleid who not only posted what most appear to agree, IMO, is an obvious death threat, (and actually claimed copyright for the sick graphic!!!!) is doing just fine on Twitter, so Twitter admins must really love him. Del Harvey and the Twitter admins and Execs must be de facto officially recognizing death threats as what they, IMO, must think is a positive form of communication on Twitter. I am sure Congress and the Ohio Attorney General's office will find that fascinating. This also means that whatever supposed transgression  Kathy performed at Twitter must be worse than a death threat, right? Okay, what is it, then, if Twitter is not just seeking poisonous, power-mad revenge against Kathy for helping to expose the troll problem of otherwise unbiased and unprejudiced Twitter administration? Like all of the above people, we have many screenshots of Stan which in our opinion definitely qualify as being in violation of Twitter's rules, yet Kathy is suspended and Stan keeps posting things like that.

It should be noted that virtually all of the people shown in these illustrations of conduct are apparently very closely aligned and appear to use Twitter as a sort-of organizational internet office to orchestrate unified behavior as illustrated, above - that is plain when some say "Everyone should do this or that, etc. Another of these friends is "Randomthots" ...




... who accused me of being anti-semitic. Proof? None, just like Harriet's claim that I got Boss Hogg suspended. But she sure does engage the others, shown above, as friends, regularly. She also does things like this...


... and appears to try to find the slightest context, IMO, to "innocently" retweet calls others have made to attack us - literally, and in so doing "innocently" spread that message of hate. Del Harvey, at this point, I must assume thinks all this is fine, and presumably has evidence that Kathy Amidon has done worse than the above people since all their accounts are doing just fine, thanks, but Kathy, whom they attack, has been permanently suspended by "neutral" Twitter safety and security which is run under the watchful eye of Delbius Harvey, with whom the above people appear to be on very friendly terms.

A few more, just for good measure... all these accounts are doing fine while Kathy has been suspended....

Dakota Rose appeared to be organizing Spamblock operations, in these tweets, against people she does not like...



We told you about "True Patriots For America', admitted by the people who run it to be an intentional acronym to swipe the TPFA hashtag from the Fire Ants and dilute the message. They behave like this....


Anna calls Kathy, who is a courageous patriot in every sense of the word (remember the TPFA accomplishments and letters of thank you from conservative congressmen) a whore, and Twitter thinks that's great, apparently....



 and True patriots, again, jumps in unprovoked while kathy is trying to be positive about the new TPFA video (29,000+ views in just a few days)and calls her a bigot.... and Devoe, who associates with most these same people regularly (surprise, surprise), volunteers  without provocation little gems like this...



All of this is apparently fine with Delbius Harvey and her bosses at Twitter who must be aware of all this since they were written up about our group twice so far in well-read World Net Daily and the article link has been tweeted to them, by, among others, us. The larger problem is that this is also called "cyber-bullying" and that is a criminal activity, and Twitter IMO appears absolutely  complicit. This is not a new observation unique to us and this is why we are working with GOP House members to move ahead on a Congressional investigation of Twitter abuses among it's 250-million daily users and the failures of Twitter administration, which may include, IMO, intentionally empowering such acts. No doubt the congress people Kathy knows will be astonished to know that it is actually worse than before; Twitter has permanently suspended the, IMO, one of most beleaguered victim of, IMO, manifest antagonists; a woman whose accomplishment has opened many doors and who is now on very friendly terms with the office staff of many of the GOP Reps who will likely be involved in the very investigation of Twitter, itself. I hope Twitter has a great reason for suspending kathy compared to these others who run free, because IMO suspending her in this way at this time was an incomprehensibly stupid thing to do.

Additionally, this info and article, like much else, is being sent to the Ohio Attorney General's office for their detectives, since it appears, IMO, that Twitters' security chief Delbius Harvey and her staff are ignoring the, IMO, gross rules transgressions (and even punish the victim) of people who associate together with a unified activism against Kathy, at least a few of whom IMO appeared to have some knowledge of the apparent forged letter from that office.... something of which, IMO, they plainly could not have had any knowledge unless they had spoken intimately on the subject to people involved with the creation of the apparent Ohio Attorney General letter forgery:






It seems each time some of these people try to, IMO, salve their concerns by posting something - IMO to keep the lib trolls from scattering for fear of a congressional investigation and give them unwarranted confidence - they make things worse for themselves. Snow White apparently contacted Rep Devin Nunes' office and got a letter from him saying he knew of no investigation of Twitter, IMO solicited by White to keep the Twitter troll ranks unafraid of congressional hearings and fully active. But Nunes would not have known at that point anyway; Kathy is dealing with a few very selected Reps. However, since this was  volunteered by Snow White, Kathy called Nunes' office. Kathy has now spoken to Nunes' staff three times for over two hours total. Nunes' staff has seen the screenshots, seen the Twitter timelines in real time, the World Net Daily articles, and now understands even more fully the Fire Ants legitimacy and accomplishments  (as reported by World Net Daily when WND called Rep Frank Wolf's office about the Fire Ants) and understand the thanks to TPFA from fellow Reps Wolf and Rice. Nunes' staff definitely understands the troll problem now in a big way and we can expect Nunes' to get into the investigation soon, also. 

IMO Some of these people somehow think they are terribly intelligent and immensely clever and think that by hair-splitting the particulars like wise guys, the world will have no choice but to ignore their actions and give them a pass. Wrong. All anyone has to do now is look. There is very little left to the imagination at this point. And to anyone who may be working on Obama's behalf, I repeat; remember Rev Wright, Bill Ayres and Ambassador Stevens: if any you think Obama will write you a pardon or come to your aid when trouble comes, you're crazy. Obama has made it clear time and again that he believes people have a duty to sacrifice themselves for him so he can vacation in Martha's Vineyard with fewer headaches. Ask Wright, Ayres and channel Stevens with a ouija board.

Oh yes, additionally, through an intermediate, a few e-mails to kathy by a couple of the  people whose tweets are shown, above, were sent to a fairly famous law enforcement team known well to conservatives. Conclusion? The e-mails were "layered" to protect the identities of the users in ways that the investigators recognize and the news is not good. That, too, is being looked into, by them.

So before Congress and the Ohio  Attorney General's Office asks, we ask Twitter: what is it that Kathy Amidon Tweeted that is so terrible that she was now permanently suspended after all these months of being otherwise suspended, and the people whose behavior is illustrated above have not been suspended? Why Kathy and why not them? It should be a simple question to answer, but IMO it better be a good one that makes sense to Congress and Ohio, not just to you as an excuse comprised of twisted minutia, because the appearance of complicity in cyber-bullying and death threats is, IMO, terrible, now. And remember, these people don't want to hear stupidly over-confident wise guy responses from people who may think the real world stops at the San Francisco city limits. This issue is a poster child for a much bigger problem which is getting congress and law involved. This is serious, now. So what is the answer? Why has Kathy Amidon, now well-known to many congressional offices, been permanently suspended?

Why?
