BUSTED! Video Documents Role of Dem. Consultant Neal Rauhauser in Smear Campaign Against Tea Party
The Other McCain ^ | 10/7/2010 | Robert Stacy McCain

Posted on 10/08/2010 9:32:24 AM PDT by Qbert

WARNING: This video is filled with profanity. What it documents — including pedophilia-themed Twitter attacks against children of a Tea Party supporter — involves a network of “progressive” activists apparently organized by Neal Rauhauser, whose firm, Progressive PST, has been hired by many Democratic candidates.

UPDATE: Wow, Greg W. Howard posted this video on his blog two weeks ago, and I didn’t see it until today? Man, I’ve got to start paying closer attention . . .

UPDATE II: Much of the information in the video was collected at the “Swift Read” site of conservative Catholic blogger Patrick Read, who says that he and others have stored page caches of the material. The video says the purpose is to “illustrate that Neal Rauhauser was soliciting some of the worst provocateurs he could find in an effort to deliberately elicit angered responses from the Tea Party.” It  features screen captures of Tweets by several activists alleged to have been part of Rauhauser’s network. Conservative blogger Greg W. Howard was especially targeted for Twitter harassment. (Warning: Extremely graphic language.)

TOPICS: Government; Politics
KEYWORDS: obama; palin; politics; progressives; scottmcadams; smears; teaparty
This is some extremely disturbing NSFW stuff (including pedophile-oriented tweets from this progressive group). Neal Rauhauser and his group PST have done work for Arizona Democrat Rep. Raul Grijalva, and Alaska Senate candidate Scott McAdams, among others (list of candidates at 11:00 of video). The Huffington Post, among others, has mentioned Rauhauser as somebody available for hire.

Note: I couldn't extract this video, and couldn't find it at YouTube, so if someone can post it, please do. Also there are some screenshots of the twisted tweets at the link. (Not pimpin' the blog- just very, very NSFW...)

There’s no spoken audio on the video, unfortunately- just background music. I’ll try see what else I can find in writing though, and put it in the comments (and forward it, as well).

One would think that the Law would provide a remedy for this pattern of deliberate harrassment, and an appropriate punishment for the perpetrators. Free speech doesn't cover assault, and that's precisely what this is.

Then you've got intentional use of interstate media for the perpetrating of a deliberate fraud for personal financial and political gain. Has to be illegal, and if it isn't, we need to see that fixed.

Should be a Class 1 Federal Felony.

Fear and Loathing in Freeperville
by Iowa Boy
Fri Apr 06, 2007 at 03:15:56 PM PDT

I recently returned to online activities after a ninety day ‘vacation’. I decided to see some new country, so I created a Free Republic login, and what I found in the day and a half my login survived ... has interesting implications for the 2008 elections.

We’ve seen the 43%/43% Democratic/Republican split shift to a 50%/35% split and after just a day with the FReepers I’m sure that trend is going to continue. In fact, I think we can help it along ...

(I’ve completed my follow on thoughts to this diary - some ideas on framing and communication that could be directed to the portion of Evangelicals who are fed up with the Bush administration’s behavior)

Neal Rauhauser’s Summary

I grew up in rural Iowa and if I don't say my age people hearing about my childhood would guess I'm in my sixties rather than forties.

I spent my adult life working as a software developer and network engineer. Lyme disease knocked me flat in the summer of 2007. I was largely disabled for eighteen months, hospitalized repeatedly, and homeless part of the time. I wrote relentlessly on DailyKos that year and have the makings of a good novel from my journey.

On 1/1/2008 I founded the Stranded Wind Initiative, an NGO focused on development using wind resources in areas that lack transmissions lines . The best use of stranded wind power is making ammonia; I published the National Renewable Ammonia Architecture in the spring of 2009 and the Illinois Institute of Rural Affairs will publish a policy paper based on this in the summer of 2010.

I was well enough to return to work 1/2/2009. That fall I ventured to Netroots Nation and in the closing hours of the event we founded the Blog Workers Industrial Union & Benevolent Society.

The BWIU runs a jobs bank for its members, there is a training program that features SalsaLabs tools among the mix of organizing technologies, a book exchange, and a couple of for profits have spun out of the group including Progressive PST, our social media consulting operation.

We arrived as a force on the national scene in the spring of 2010, participating in many high visibility House primary races, landing our first Senate campaign in Arizona, and gathering resources needed to support various initiatives.

Something is going to come out of all of this between now and the 2010 midterm elections and I do believe there is something more to come after that. Keep watching this space and I'll update as I can.
Neal Rauhauser’s Specialties:

blogger, social media strategist, infrastructure development, organizing, renewable energy, renewable ammonia, transit oriented development, telecommunications engineer.

And as election-day draws closer, progressive-masses are banging about social networks and provably engaging in a systematic attack on average Americans—who are now resoundingly rejecting their transformational wants of America.

Detailed documentation makes clear that Progressive E-Thugs are “organized,” linked to national Democrat candidates and engaging in a disgusting assault on average citizen using social-media. The politics of personal destruction is not just aimed politicians anymore. According to sources, Bill Clinton met with “Senior Democrat political operatives to coordinate a push-back to the burgeoning tea party movement” last February when Scott Brown won Kennedy’s former seat. “Big Government” verified Clinton’s “plotting a “push/pull” strategy” with an aim on the Tea Party—which according to polls, a good number are fellow Democrats.

Reportedly, the plan was to identify national Tea Party leaders and “engage in deep opposition research” in hopes to “create a mole from within” by way of threat or by bribe. Those who wouldn’t turncoat, would be the target of character assassination to demoralize, deride, defame and derail them.

The Tea Party proved its impact & merit when Governor Chris Christie won in New Jersey, Governor Bob McDonnell won in Virginia and it further shows its might as core conservatives have scored big-wins during the primary season. As Bill Clinton is all too familiar, “politics ain’t ‘beanbags.” Lately, it’s been more like a list of cyber-thugs named, “bean dogs.”

Neal Rauhauser is the founder of the Stranded Wind Initiative. He is involved in the day to day outreach, often writing on DailyKos as well as making regular contributions to the Sci-Tech section on The Cutting Edge News and occasional reporting for The Oil Drum

His professional work involves a mix of telecommunications consulting and the management of Third Mode Energy, a startup founded by members of the *Stranded Wind Initiative to commercialize some of the concepts presented here.

*Description:
The Stranded Wind Initiative exists to find ways to use wind power in areas that lack the population to use it and the transmission resources to send it to market.

Stranded Wind is a multi level enterprise that facilitates the development of stranded renewable energy resources to address the issues of fossil fuels, energy independence and global warming. Stranded Wind is committed to the sustainable production of ammonia as an alternative fuel and agricultural commodity, rail electrification, the development of biofuels without impacting food production and local renewable power generation. Stranded Wind provides organizational development resources to encourage new, renewable energy projects using emerging technologies to enhance local energy independence. strandedwind.org

Well, I just went to the video and it says this:

Inbox:: There is no connection to this video and Greg Howard or Patrick Read, except to the extent that a partially-done report was given to them confidentially while we were working on this to see if they had anything to add and they did not. We spoke to numerous people.

The material was then handed over to Andrew Breitbart after this was uploaded.

The rumor that this video was created by either individual is false. They blogged it as did many others. I hope that settles the Inbox inquiries.

Then I go look up GregWHoward and SwiftRead and they are trashing Andrew Breitbart, Dick Army, Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck. That's from last night's tweets.

If you go back far enough, you see that Greg Howard seemed perturbed that Andrew Breitbart hadn't taken notice of him and the problems he was having before WingnutWatch arrived on the scene. Apparently when the video hit, Mr. Howard was upset that no one paid him first notice of his personal confrontation with the "beandogs" and that others only sent it to the media after the Tea Party Tracker scam came to light.

The same thing holds for Patrick Read, who appears to be in a non-Tea Party group with Greg Howard looking for attention to their personal issues.

I would be very careful here for the sake of the Tea Party. The posts I read from Greg Howard and cheering on by Patrick Read would indicate they are leading people to believe they did this video and by extension, want people to believe that the mentioned celebrities above are trying to make money off of the Tea Party and should be shunned.

It would also appear that only Andrew Breitbart (that I can tell) was contacted by the group who did the report and the video.

Be very wary of this, folks. I don't like where this might be going. Greg Howard is obviously not friendly to the media or certain conservatives. His twitter page is filled with elitism and his objective appears that he wants to be the next "Rush Limbaugh".

He seems delusional and very full of himself. The Other McCain and Gawker should have read this stuff before putting those two front and center. I don't like it. The named celebrities have always been Tea Party friendly. To read posts to the contrary, with malice, should have been the responsible thing to check first before coming here to make fun of the efforts of the video, obviously made by someone else, and plug for his friends who seem suspect to me.

Here are some of the posts I found tonight -

From Greg Howard's Twitter page:

@FreeWeThePeople Now I'm hearing I harassed AB. I don't think I'm going to waste much more time here other than on the news.

@FreeWeThePeople Now I'm clearing out some AB fans. Seems the celebrities are above reproach, but we're not. LOL

@FreeWeThePeople Last year I got rid of all my O'Reilly butt kisser followers. Last fall I cleaned out a few Beckistas in reply to FreeWeThePeople

@FreeWeThePeople The groupies of that hanger on guy are now coming at me in droves. Gee, so many sacred cows that #tcot worships

@SwiftRead Gosh, don't want a glory hog like me to give the wrong impression. Maybe I should change it. LOL

And it goes on and on and on. This stink, folks! BEWARE of those who boast and disparage others for the sake of drawing attention to themselves.

Whoever has blogged this should probably change the URL to the revised one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgAYo_0EeJY

This new URL has no sound. Gee, I wonder what happened to that considering no one is supposed to be uploading news derivations either or movie bytes, yet I see that all the time, especially from the left.

The left doesn't want you to see it. That's the problem there.

We should take the time to point out these double-standards and report their uploads, especially the left who continuously uploads FOX news videos to You Tube just to whine about FOX.
