Fever Swamp Blogs Hid Foley Evidence?

There’s now evidence that the fever swamp blogosphere (led by the vicious John Avarosis, who runs one of the ugliest of the lefty hate sites, Americablog), deliberately concealed information about Mark Foley for months without any concern for potential victims of Foley’s advances, so they could spring it on the public at election time. Gateway Pundit has a roundup: Get Your Lawyers... Foleygate Scandal About to Bust Open!  link: 107 comments  --hillary's fingerprints all over it. Link

Take a look at this: Michael Rogers of Blogactive threatened Kirk Fordham too. In July 2004

 
SCANDAL SATURATION? Mickey Kaus wonders about the "Densepack Theory," Karl Rotstan agrees: "Now that the Rubicon has been crossed so close to the election, we should prepare ourselves for an avalanche of Congressional filth, the likes of which will make Clinton's experience look tame by comparison." ANOTHER UPDATE: It's starting.  MORE: Indeed:

Get Your Lawyers Foleygate Scandal About to Bust Open (Gateway Pundit doing good detective work!)--Radical Gay Rights Activists held on to information about Representative Foley for months and years. These "Rights Activists" knew that representative Foley had relationships with "young men less than half his age." They did their own investigation on Foley. They even flew in their sources in to be interviewed about the Representative. They shared this information with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. They held on to the information for over a year. They wrote about how they would break the story at midterm elections.
QandO Blog now has evidence that John Aravosis (the radical gay activist from AmericaBlog- "He deserves to be publicly excoriated." 7-2004) had copies of the emails "months ago!"
This is important from Macsmind-
Sweetness and Light reported on the Mike Rogers connection on Sunday:
 Thomas Lifson at The American Thinker has more.
Wild Bill at Passionate America has big news he is reporting at 4:00 PM CST today.
And, then there is this BOMBSHELL from Clarice...Dick Morris just said on FOX that a respected reporter told him that she has proof that a senior democrat member of congress knew about the IMs months ago–unlike Hastert.
 Also, keep an eye on The Strata-Sphere.
Right Wing Nuthouse is also on the story.

FLASHBACK 2002: The Group Behind the Attacks on Bush (AmericanFamilyVoices.org)

Is Gay Activist Mark Rogers Behind The Foley “Outing”?

October 3rd, 2006

In a post at his Blogactive website, Michael Rogers seems to want to take a bow for his noble work:

Good news... Bad news...

Sunday, October 01, 2006

Well the good news is that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is finally getting it. I called their Director of Communications, Bill Burton, before the Foley story broke to let him know about Foley (and another case) were coming down the pike. While Burton promised to have someone email or return my call and didn't, I am glad he followed up on my call and was ready on Friday to come out of the gate running.

The bad new is they are still not paying enough attention... There are others within reach... If the Democrats would only fight half as hard as the Republicans.

I posted comments at the DCCC website on the Foley entry. Not only do their promises of returned calls and emails never come to fruition, but now they are deleting my comments from their blog, The Stakeholder.

Luckily the comments were cached before they axed them.

Here's the one I put up at 9:55pm:

Here's the one I put up at 10:02pm:

Well, at least they are paying attention.

And how telling it is that the Stakeholder, the homepage of the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) would delete his posts.

Mr. Rogers and his friends have been on this mission for several years now.

From a two year old article in the gay advocacy giveaway, the Washington (DC) Blade:

Blade Caption: Florida Congressman Mark Foley (R) has vowed to vote against the Federal Marriage Amendment, but gay activist John Aravosis said he decided to out the congressman anyway because Foley supports the re-election of President Bush.

Mikulski and Foley become newest congressional targets as FMA vote nears

By ADRIAN BRUNE
Friday, July 09, 2004

... Mike Rogers and John Aravosis, [are] the two men loosely heading an ongoing outing campaign on the Hill. As the date nears for a Senate vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would ban gay marriages in the Constitution, Rogers said the outings have picked up steam — from 13 documented offices to nearly 20 currently on a target list provided by Rogers to the Blade.

In addition to Tolman, Rogers and Aravosis, working in tandem but not together, claimed in the last week to have outed via the Web Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and Republican Congressman Mark Foley of Florida...

A spokesperson for Congressman Mark Foley (R-Fla.) also declined to comment after Aravosis specifically asserted that Foley is gay on his Web site last week...

Aravosis continued to defend the outing campaign.

“An acquaintance of mine, a Southern Republican, worked for a member who was not anti-gay personally, but he signed on to the amendment [banning gay marriage],” Aravosis said. “My friend quit. I’m basically saying, ‘You know what, you have a choice. It’s 2004. You can work for pro-gay Democrats, and now you can work for pro-gay Republicans.’” ...

Over in the House, Republican Mark Foley said in March that he would vote against the Federal Marriage Amendment — one week after his spokesperson said he would not take a position on the measure until it came up for a House vote.

Despite Foley’s FMA opposition, Aravosis purported to out Foley as well, taking him to task for supporting President Bush, who endorsed the measure late last winter. Labeling Foley as “our latest closeted gay hypocrite,” Aravosis said Foley made the list for putting politics ahead of his own community by “whoring for an anti-gay president.” ...

Florida Congressman Mark Foley (R) has vowed to vote against the Federal Marriage Amendment, but gay activist John Aravosis said he decided to out the congressman anyway because Foley supports the re-election of President Bush.

Foley responded to the reports by initiating a telephone press conference among non-gay Florida media and called discussion about his sexual orientation “revolting.” He declined at that time to answer questions about his sexual orientation and subsequently abandoned his bid for the Senate, citing concerns over his father’s health.

Aravosis said he obtained the latest information about the five-term congressman from Foley’s former chief of staff, Kirk Fordham.

Fordham, who is gay, headed up fund-raising efforts for Foley’s aborted Senate campaign and is now the finance director for one of the remaining GOP primary candidates in that race: Mel Martinez, George W. Bush’s former Housing & Urban Development secretary. Martinez has come out in favor of the Federal Marriage Amendment.

Fordham denied ever speaking with Aravosis and told the Blade, “I just don’t discuss Congressman Foley’s personal life with reporters, but I’m not sure what their motive is in outing him, other than to draw attention to themselves. Foley has a good track record with gay issues and opposes the FMA.” ...

It seems very probable that one or all of the gentlemen mentioned in this article have had a hand in the recent revelations about Mark Foley.

It is equally likely that one or all of them is behind the anonymous website, StopSexPredators.blogspot.com, that first produced Foley's alleged emails out of the blue.

Michael Rogers started his own website, blogactive.com, back in July of 2004.

Oddly enough, there was a significant drop-off in his activities there after July of this year, which is when StopSexPredators.blogspot.com was begun.

From Alexa:

 

Mike Rogers should probably be at the top of the list of suspects.

Who is really calling for the Republican leadership to resign?--The lunatics have NO clue what they have exposed. Their homosexual agenda has taken a HIT big time if the are trying to make Speaker Hastert responsible for Foley's acts.

Foleygate: What Stunk Like a Rat, Was a Democ-Rat!

THE PROOF THAT DEMOCRATIC OPERATIVES WERE AFTER MARK FOLEY SINCE 2004!!

From a March 2005 post at BlogActive

Sister Toldjah leads you down the path to Macsmind.
**You must read the whole thing.**

Macsmind put together this link to the Foley memos:

Where'd all the "It's Just Sex" Democrats Go

'Gay' activist held info about Foley During campaign to 'out' lawmakers

If they want to protect the children from homos, why teach it in public schools?

Is Foley This Cycle's "DUI?"

There may be a possibilty that the one who runs Blog Active.com, and the one who runs Stop Sex Predators may be one in the same. That may be Mike Rogers, the infamous Gay Republican Outer.

I went onto Rushs' web-site and his theory is that the Clinton smear machine has been re-activated. Good old Carvel and friends. When I read it it started to click,Theres the Clinton tirade on Fox that led to the attacks on Fox for being right-wing. The leaks of the terror estimate report, the slimeimg of Jennie Pirro in New York and now this. Don't get me wrong, I think Foley is a sleeze, but all this so close to the election.Coincidence? I think not.

Rogers is miffed that the DCCC has been deleting his posts. No wonder as even they sense a major backfire if it get’s out that this was all a “Gay Republican Outing” that netted more than it bargained for.
Now... Get this posting at Blog Active back on March 4, 2005:

(Click to Enlarge)

Here are the threats and plans to destroy Mark Foley printed at a Leftist-haters blog back in March of 2005:

Birds of a Feather
Two haters, one picture:
Gay-bashing straight man John Ashcroft and Gay-bashing gay man Mark Foley

This is United States Congressman Mark Foley
He voted this week for a law to allow hate groups to fire gay and lesbian people at will
The law he is supporting will overrule ANY local laws on the matter.
MARK FOLEY IS GAY
MARK FOLEY WILL BE EXPOSED FOR THE HYPOCRITE HE IS THROUGH A MAIL AND INTERNET CAMPAIGN THAT WILL REACH INTO EVERY HOME IN HIS DISTRICT.

THIS MAN IS A DANGER

TO GAY MEN AND LESBIANS

DO NOT SLEEP WITH THIS MAN
IF HE CRUISES YOU IN THE BATHROOMS OF CONGRESS,IGNORE HIM!
IF HE HITS ON YOU AT THE NEXT REPUBLICAN CONVENTIONIGNORE HIM!

THE NATION MUST BE WARNED ABOUT THIS
ABOMINATION IN THE GAY COMMUNITY

Please to support our educational and advertising campaign against this right wing hypocrite, click here and join the battle for true lesbian and gay liberation.

**COMING MONDAY ON BLOGACTIVE:** The entire Mark Foley story...Read about my recorded discussions with staff members and former staff members of Rep. Mark Foley...Read about how Mark Foley hit on men less than half his age at the Republican convention...Read about how Mark Foley voted to remove protections from those same young gay men and lesbians and anyone else violating a local discrimination law!!!
And back in 2004 there were open threats in the Washington Blade by Rogers targeting Foley:

20 offices said targeted
Not likely, say Mike Rogers and John Aravosis, the two men loosely heading an ongoing outing campaign on the Hill. As the date nears for a Senate vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would ban gay marriages in the Constitution, Rogers said the outings have picked up steam — from 13 documented offices to nearly 20 currently on a target list provided by Rogers to the Blade.

In addition to Tolman, Rogers and Aravosis, working in tandem but not together, claimed in the last week to have outed via the Web Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and Republican Congressman Mark Foley of Florida.

While Tolman confirmed he is gay, the Mikulski’s office refused to comment on speculation she is a lesbian, something Aravosis implied last week on his site.

A spokesperson for Congressman Mark Foley (R-Fla.) also declined to comment after Aravosis specifically asserted that Foley is gay on his Web site last week.

Both members of Congress have long been the subject of rumors about their sexual orientation.
Foley abused his position and may have been involved in criminal activity.

Democrats knew this for over a year.
With 6 weeks before the November elections, they broke the dam loose!


More from March 2005 at BlogActive...

From the gay outing website on March 22, 2005:

blogACTIVE.com has confirmed with three separate sources that, in fact, US Rep. Mark Foley is a gay man. Foley has voted to support discrimination against gay men and lesbians on more than one occasion.

A source has confirmed with blogACTIVE.com that Foley lives a practically an out life at his Florida residence, often seen entertaining gay men, some of whom the source described as "close to underage."

...I've thought hard about what kind of TAKE ACTION would work, but there is really is none right now. Everyone already knows Foley's a self hating closet case. When we get closer to the mid-term elections, I am sure more will surface.
And, there you have it!

Others in the Game: La Shawn Barber, Passionate America, Michelle Malkin, HotAir, Just One Minute, Flopping Aces, Right Wing Nuthouse, Dan Riehl has an update Powerline, Instapundit, Ace, RedState, Wizbang, TigerHawk, American Thinker...
Gay Patriot weighs in.

(Let me clarify, there are 2 issues here: There is the sexual predator issue that is abominable, and then there is the skunk issue, those that waited with their reports while children were in jeopardy until 6 weeks outside of an election to release their "news"!)

Mark Foley Emails Altered?

Now the Mark Foley story is getting weird. (Yes, I know it’s already weird, but this is weirder.) There doesn’t seem to be any doubt that Foley’s guilty of making advances to teenage boys—after all, he resigned—but there’s something very odd about the email messages being circulated by media and left wing blogs: Foleygate: Mark Foley emails altered.

More at Flopping Aces.

UPDATE at 10/2/06 9:07:44 am:

More links and background at Michelle Malkin: Predators in the Houselink: 173 comments  "Like it or not, it is legal for a 16 year old to have sex in most states with either sex.   The issue is whether Foley was doing it on taxpayer time/dollars.  Rush is interviewing Jim Geraghty of TKS at National Review. He doesn't think the Foley thing will do any real damage to Republicans in terms of keeping the House. He believes the "culture of corruption" meme is a big loser for the Dems, and security trumps all. I tend to agree, but I'm afraid I may be underestimating the stupidity of the American people. "

I'm not going to post the contents of Foley's explicit email here, because LGF is not a porn site. If you want to read it, just click on the link. WARNING: it contains explicit sexual material.

Does Anybody In Our Media Remember Gerry Studds?

October 1st, 2006

For some reason I just feel the need to remember that great Democrat Congressmen and rights pioneer Gerry Studds.

From Wikipedia:

Gerry StuddsPhoto

Gerry Eastman Studds (born May 12, 1937) is a retired American politician, born in Mineola, New York. He served as a Democratic Congressman for Massachusetts from 1973 until 1996. He was the first openly homosexual member of the US Congress and, more generally, the first openly gay national politician in the US.

Congressional page sex scandal

Studds is remembered chiefly for his role in the Congressional page sex scandal in 1983, when he and Representative Dan Crane were censured by the House of Representatives for separate sexual relationships with a minor – in Studds's case, a 1973 relationship with a 17-year-old male congressional page.

During the course of the House Ethics Committee's investigation, Studds publicly acknowledged his homosexuality, a disclosure that, according to a Washington Post article, "apparently was not news to many of his constituents."

Studds stated in an address to the House, "It is not a simple task for any of us to meet adequately the obligations of either public or private life, let alone both, but these challenges are made substantially more complex when one is, as I am, both an elected public official and gay."

As the House read their censure of him, Studds turned his back and ignored them.

Later, at a press conference with the former page standing beside him, the two stated that what had happened between them was nobody's business but their own.

Studds was re-elected five more terms after the censure...

Maybe the change of season is just making me nostalgic. I'm also strangely reminded of that equally heroic Congressman Barney Frank:

http://cache.wonkette.com/politics/frankhand.jpg

I guess some Congressman are more equal than others.

Especially Democrats.

16 Comments » "And we are told that homosexuals are normal, and that we should not be worried about them being in our schools, etc.,. Then, how come it seems that they are always looking or turning to young boys?"" There is something really rank about the smell of this. Let’s look at the facts………….
The emails and IMs were given to ABC by CREW (Citizens for Ethics) a far left wing organization funded by surprise, surprise….. George Soros. And the head of CREW is none other than a Clinton staffer and worked for that bastion of Islamic rights, John Conyers (D-Michigan). CREW was implement in going after Tom DeLay.
Now it seems that CREW has possession of these emails and IM for a long time. But chose this particular time to release them to ABC (who is not admitting that it was CREW that give them up)."
 

Foley setup?--Correct. In other words, people knew there was a predator out there, but they failed to report him immediately - preferring to wait until a time that created a political opportunity.--Former page: We knew about Foley 'for years'

Foley--Anybody who is surprised at this needs to recalibrate their radar. Timing of the release of damaging information is critical. The old media campaigns for the Democrats. They generically attack 90% of the time, but save the really damaging individual stuff to affect elections. Of course they've been sitting on this for the right time to release it. Politics is a full contact bare knuckles enterprise.--pdf format at ABC Exclusive: Foley Explicit IMs

Internal Review of Contacts with the Office of the Speaker Regarding the Cong. Mark Foley Matter--ABC News along with the entire MSM is always working with the DNC to subvert the GOP right before election-time. They did it to Bush 41 4 days before the 1992 election with an Iran-Contra-Weinberger "surprise" (which turned out to be meaningless but then cost Bush 4%). They did it to then-Gov. Bush with the sudden DUI release one week before the 2000 elections (which cost Bush 5%). They are doing it again here, and I think there will be one more "surprise" before October is done.

I find it interesting that the Pages were warned about Foley way back in 1995. If I am not mistaken, Bill Clinton was President of the United States from 1993 until 2001 and did nothing to protect the Capitol Hill Pages from Foley.

The facts are that the Democrats knew about Foley way back in 1995 and did not tell anyone until last week just four weeks before the election. Again if the word about Foley was out then Clinton knew and of course did nothing!

As for your October Surprise Theory, the Dems used this in an attempt to destroy the 2006 GOP chances. The Democrats are again playing the politics of destruction while Karl Rove is helping the President and the GOP build a better and safer America.

Its totally clear to me now. Forham is a double agent. He's been pushing the Foley stuff to the Dems for years hopeing that they would sit on it. Giving it personally to Pelosi and other top Dems. Now that they have come out screaming for Hastert's head because he knew and covered it up, he is going to drop the other shoe and produce 100% credible evidence that Pelosi knew and was sitting on this information for years and that she doesnt give a damn about the children. WHen are the Republicans going to spring the trap??? Well it's as beleivable as many of the stories I see spun around here during the last few days.

Have you got this link at radaronline? It's posted on Drudge tonight, and pretty well shows that the blog that outed Foley was set up several months before solely with that end in view.

I don't know how reliable this site is, but the evidence seems pretty damning at first glance.

Thanks for the link- that information fits what I have seen at other sites, for whatever sort of confirmation it provides.

I appreciate everyone's efforts to tie everything together, but I'm not smart enough for this. It's too confusing, lol.

This is a great collection of links. The Macsmind blog just keeps rehashing the same speculation over and over. It's good to see a comprehensive list of different information. Thanks for putting this together.

Then you are as immoral as the Dems, because I guarentee Rove would NEVER sit on info about someone as sick as Foley to use in elections.

To: doesnt suffer fools gladly

Simply put-

Democrat activists knew the activities Foley was engaged in, contacted their friends in the MSM and DNC, and put together a strategy to reveal all on the eve of elections to hopefully depress conservative/Christian turnout.

They allowed someone of Foley's immoral activities to reside for months-years-without a thought to the welfare of pages in D.C. because politics trumps their safety.

The above is simply dozens of conservatives piecing together the information to prove what they did.

It is one thing not to know someone as disgusting as Foley was serving in D.C. It is quite another to know and allow it to continue to pop as an "October Surprise". Those that did are complicit in Foley's activities, for they knew and allowed it to continue.

"..the Dems used this in an attempt to destroy the 2006 GOP chances."

It's called, "Politics." Our side would do the same if it could. We look stupid. And our excuse is to blame the dems?? Hastert is an a$$. He must go.
