TO GOWDY: SUBPOENA OBAMA FOR THE BENGHAZI SURVIVOR WITNESSES

We love House Representative Trey Gowdy in equal but in a different measure as we love Representative Frank Wolf. They are the two halves of a team which can get to the bottom of Benghazi and see justice done, not only from without, but from within our own country.

Rep Wolf did his part: he stuck it out when so many others turned a blind eye; others who were ill-equipped, intellectually it seemed, to deal with the complexities and potential nightmare scenarios that digging deep into any issue sometimes unearths. But that's life in the real world and we do not elect and pay our Representatives to live well in austerity and do nothing - we pay them to handle the political dirt of our country while dressed in tailored suits and to do so diligently and without whine or complaint. Period.  

Wolf, a generally quiet man, self-effacing and terrifically honorable - an example to everyone, really - kept the light alive when everyone, including essentially all Democrats and many Republicans, were prepared to forget about Benghazi and move on. As he nears the end of his final term before self-imposed retirement, we wish him well, here, and will continue to honor him on this site as he nears the moment when he walks down the steps of The Capital Building for the last time as an active member of Congress, though he will always be Representative Frank Wolf to us.

Gowdy is now the man in the center of the action for a Benghazi Select Committee, as he is the Chairman, and we are delighted at the choice. This is no small thing for us as you can imagine - we/TPFA worked every single day for 17 months campaigning on Twitter and to a lesser extent in other media to see the Benghazi Select Committee happen, despite stonewall opposition from RINO House Speaker John Boehner. If you are a regular reader here, you know the drill. If not, click on each image for the larger version to read these thank you letters to us from Congressman Wolf .



 Now we really love Rep Gowdy. He has the no-nonsense, surgical precision of exactly what he was before joining Congress: a highly skilled southern prosecutor who never lost a case. This is not Ken Starr redux. Don't ever worry about Gowdy not eating the opposition alive - you might as well hand him the toothpick before he starts. Gowdy is the right man for Benghazi, and this country is damn lucky to have him, because he is unique among Congressmen as a prosecutor at his level of success.

But there has been an omission from his statements which has TPFA deeply concerned: while he mentions Hillary Clinton and all the attention-getting star witnesses whose very appearance before Congress will be a reality-show drama of catfights and gossip - just what the American entertainment audience loves, and so their inclusion serves an additional purpose to call attention to the murders in Benghazi - Gowdy has thus far failed to mention the importance, first and foremost, of getting the names of the Benghazi Survivor  Witnesses and having them testify. We are not alone in this concern: 3,000-plus retweets on Twitter is no small thing for an otherwise seemingly forgotten political issue, and the same person cannot just click retweet over and over, every retweet represents a unique individual. This one has over 3,000 retweets for a sum total of a minimum estimate of 14 million views:

Hillary will make a show. Others will range from comical to somber. The media, in an effort to protect Obama, will make the whole thing look like a tax-wasting political witch hunt designed to bolster GOP chances in the upcoming November midterm elections and unless the American people get a hard and rattling dose of reality the media will be successful. 

There is only one thing that will sober up the minds of the American people to this horror called Benghazi: the testimony of the people who were there and saw it all. And it is high time that the average citizens - coddled into a false sense of security about the Obama administration by a protective media and an endless stream of childish diversions from reality shows which are as staged as any drama to cute kitten videos on the internet - got a rattling dose of reality. 

Obama clearly does not want these people, who should have been the first to testify in the last hearings. The witnesses should have been the first to be called, well before Hillary "I fhew down ann hurd my widdoo head" - "What difference does it make?" Clinton. Since Clinton tied things up for months recuperating from a terrible concussion while she carefully and methodically compiled a dictionary-sized list of pre-written responses from which she was allowed to read in lieu of legitimate courtroom-style testimony, there was plenty of time for all 33 survivor witnesses to testify. Repeatedly. They were never even called to say a word, which is an absolute mind-blower.

Here's the problem: it appears that no one knows - including Congress - after almost two years who they are or even if they are still alive, and the most unnerving thing is that it appears that that is exactly the way Obama wants it. 

We have told you here before that the "33" number of witnesses has been repeated by congress - Hillary testified that there were at least 25 rescued from the Annex in Benghazi - and that according to Rep Jason Chaffetz, Congress is usually apprised of the identities of such people within 48 hours. The mystery of the identities of the Benghazi Survivor Witnesses - and what they saw - which should have been resolved within 48 hours is now nearing 48 months.

The worst part of all is that it Obama's Administration has said that the Benghazi Witnesses have been ordered to sign non-disclosure agreements, been given identities and moved around the country. Just like that - to give up their friends and live a lie of an identity, they and their families - spouses and kids - for the rest of their lives.



WAIT A MINUTE! IN AMERICA?! That's what they did in the old Soviet Union to shut up witnesses. That's what they often said, anyway, when later documents would prove that in most cases the witnesses, their families and associates were murdered to shut them up.

It is impossible to think that after 2 years not a single one of the witnesses wanted the truth to be known. or a book deal. or an ex-spouse, or mother or father or brother or sister or friends, ex-worked - someone - would say, here is so-and-so. And what of those kids who were presumably yanked from their schools and friends and told, "Your name is now such and such, this is your history, memorize it and tell everyone this is who you are or you are in big trouble, young man - our lives depend on it." I don't believe it, and if that's what happened, it's a the worse free-speech nightmare ever known in the country that prides itself, most of all, on freedom. these people were free citizens of the United States. This cannot happen, and that is so far the best scenario, which has been offered by the Obama Administration, itself.  

Not to mention that it is truly absurd to think you can have a murder investigation without calling in the witnesses to testify. Let's get real about this, come down to earth and simply remember the common-sense mindset of our own culture in this regard:



We bring this up because Congress seems lost in all the high-minded political confusion. Oh, these poor souls, an election looming, media saying this and that, campaign rides, "Did I just kiss a baby with hepatitis B?" You can see where they might lose track of the fact that YOU CANNOT CONDUCT A MURDER INVESTIGATION WITHOUT THE TESTIMONY OF THE WITNESSES IF WITNESSES EXIST, AND THEY DO.... OR AT LEAST, THEY DID, AND IF THEY DO NOT, WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM MUST BE IMMEDIATELY DETERMINED ASAP AND MADE PUBLIC TO THE PEOPLE WHOSE MONEY PAYS FOR ALL THIS.

The other road in which to go is much darker and we don't like it. Were the witnesses killed to shut them up? That sounds like the kind of thing LSD-filled leftists were saying about Nixon in 1972. The problem is, as you saw in the video clip of Fox News, the Obama Administration seems to have admitted that they gave them new names and moved them around. However, that is how you protect witnesses up until the point that they testify - you don't demand people take on new lives, their spouses and children say goodbye to friends and live under the burden of a fictional identity for the rest of their lives. That has never happened in the United States except to the occasional compromised agent, and these people were civilians whose only involvement was being in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is no joke. This is the real deal.

Such a "terrible" thing might seem impossible to the American mind. But America has been living on borrowed time statistically when it comes to unpleasant things happening at the top. The rest of the world - every single major player - has had to deal with the fact that in its history books are people and acts millions of times worse than this, for perspective:


Germany, a fine country of no-nonsense realists - had Hitler, who during just a few years in the mid-20th-century murdered 6 million German Jews; Russia - steeped in old-world splendor - had several murderers who soil their grade-school history books (or should), including Ivan The Terrible as well as the Communist Stalin in the 20th century, the latter of which murdered 40 million of his own people in the purges; England, from which this nation sprung initially, had Richard the Third, who murdered his way up to the throne and Henry the Eighth, while known mainly for his six wives, had created spy/execution network believed to have murdered 70,000 people, including two of his own wives, and also had Oliver Cromwell, whose aggressions against Catholics in Scotland and Ireland are generally described historically a genocidal; France's history books have Napoleon, whose idea of a stable peace was aggression in pursuit of global domination with himself master of the world, and Maximilien Robespierre, who killed approximately 40,000 French citizens in his famous "Reign of Terror" from which the expression sprang; Japan had 20th-century Prime Ministers Tojo and Hirota, found guilty of war crimes during WWII and both executed by hanging; 20th-century Italy had Mussolini, who is reported to have murdered 300,000 of his own countrymen; Spain's 20th century had Franco, who killed thousands, made catholicism the only accepted religion and confessed to having 26,000 political prisoners under lock and key; 20th-century Mexico had Diaz,who imprisoned his political opponent, declared himself de facto winner of the election and dissolved all localized power, making himself the supreme authority, with many corpses face-down along the way; and topping the democide list is China's 20th-century Communist Chairman Mao who is generally regarded as being responsible for a positively nauseating  70-million deaths of his own countrymen in peacetime due mostly to concentration camps and purge executions. Add to this essentially every single significant player country in the world and many more insignificant had their own murderers at the top, from Pol Pot to Saddam Hussein.

This is what kids learn, more or less, from their history books growing up in other countries. We never had that and as a consequence refuse the unhappiness of being a little more wary about that which unpleasant politicians are capable. 

Now don't get us wrong - we're in no way suggesting that Obama murdered or ordered to be murdered anyone to silence them. But given the history of the world and the fact that the United States appears to now be living on statistical borrowed time in this regard, one thing is for sure:

THE BENGHAZI SELECT COMMITTEE HAD BETTER SUBPOENA OBAMA FOR THE BENGHAZI SURVIVOR WITNESSES AND THAT BETTER BE THE FIRST THING THEY DO, BECAUSE AWARENESS OF THOSE MISSING WITNESSES IS GROWING, IT'S NOT GOING AWAY. 

CHAIRMAN GOWDY, FIND THEM FAST AND ANNOUNCE YOU HAVE A RELATE THEIR TESTIMONY TO THE PEOPLE, OR MAKE AMERICA AWARE THAT OBAMA HAD DONE SOMETHING TO OR WITH THEM, BECAUSE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE - THE MEDIA, ESPECIALLY - WILL CALL YOU COMPLICIT TO BALANCE THE POLITICAL FALLOUT FOR THE LEFT IF THE TRUTH COMES OUT AND FINDING THEM IS NOT THE FIRST THING YOU CAN SAY YOU TRIED TO DO AFTER TELLING IT TO AMERICA.

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

Images used via the Fair Use Act.


To cut to the chase, scroll down and read the notations in RED beneath  the name of each of the Twitter Executives covered here. All the Executives listed on the Twitter Executive  page as of this writing are listed here. Be prepared for a shock. It's worse than you think. 
********************************************************

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 Congress 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 rules grossly 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 in the first place?" 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 its collective 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? Could it have been that experience of trolling and the humiliation of targeted individuals that Twitter was actually looking for, so that their new Chief of Security could implement similar strategies not, this time, to pedophiles, but to political conservatives?

That's a cynical idea to be sure - a real nightmare on the scale that would be manifest by a social network as large as Twitter. 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, however, 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, they never tell us why - 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. I mean the real deal.

  
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*. Not a Facebook or blog army. A Twitter army.

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.
http://www.liberal-international.org/site/LI_and_NDI_strengthen_ties_at_anniversary_dinner.html

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.




Adam Messinger, Chief Technology Officer
Occasional political tweets/retweets skew plainly to the left/hard left.









Alex Roetter, Vice President of Engineering
The only one on this list whose occasional political Tweets appear to stay center. We hope this article does not disenfranchise him from his leftist co-workers; His Tweets reflect the personality of an intelligent nice guy with adventurous interests.




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
No political bias on the surface




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. Only these four were found which had a political theme, and they skew left.







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


Kevin Weil, Vice President of Revenue Products

Tweets/retweets appear to skew left (we could not find him tweeting about or retweeting any Republicans)










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 who skew often hard left, a couple of whom 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. None were omitted for effect or any other reason. Most are very, very plainly left/hard left. There's only one centrist. There are none who are pro-right politically and a few of the people at the very top are actually involved in Obama's Administration. Get the picture? You can go to the Twitter exec page to confirm these people are who we say they are, HERE

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!"

"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. 

CUT TO THE CHASE: It seems way fewer conservatives have heard of Harriet Baldwin than one might suspect from the way she and her pals communicate to the world. So here's the short version:

She categorically declared our three Thank You letters from Congressman Frank Wolf were "bogus" forgeries...



Well-known World Net Daily called Wolf's office and confirmed the Tea Party Fire Ants are legit and the Thank You letters from Congressman Wolf are genuine...



Therefore, we demand an apology from Harriet Baldwin and her pals. If she refuses to give an apology, then IMO considering the vitriol she & pals have spewed at us for over a year...





their conservative motivations must be considered suspect and they, themselves, abandoned as any legitimate voice for conservatism. That's pretty straightforward and IMO, a common-sense necessity, because Tea Party groups must be more or less unified by November.
Harriet Baldwin, IMO, very clearly stands in the way of that necessity. Look at this jaw-dropping response Harriet Baldwin made regarding Kathy's demand for an apology - Harriet threatens her in, IMO, the proven way of the leftist trolls. Does this sound like one conservative talking to another? I think not!!! What do you think?

  
  

The Long Version for people with time on their hands...

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?! AND THEN THREATENS KATHY AND SAYS KATHY IS "BEING TRACKED WHILE INSULTING KATHY?!?!" 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.
