I just heard an ad for this site on the radio, not much meat on the site. Does anyone know who is behind this effort?
What say you, JR?
What I say is it looks like your view of helping the tea party movement is shaking hands with Sarah Palin at a rally and getting your picture taken. Our solution is recruiting 15,000+ new people every week to the tea party movement and giving them unlimited free resources and information to advance the tea party movement aggressively to protect Americans freedoms and liberties.
Have a great day.
The man in that picture is Jim Robinson, founder of Free Republic. In my humble opinion you should begin backtracking now.
About his last post, the thing really speaks for itself, doesn’t it? The guy thinks this here freerepublic “blog” thingy was started just to question the legitimacy of his organization, and that Jim Robinson is just some guy who got his picture taken shaking hands with Sarah Palin.
Maybe when his organization has been around for 14 years, has 300,000 registered users, serves one million page views per day, is linked on Drudge’s website, and is a “go to” source for people like Rush Limbaugh, maybe then we won’t be questioning if he’s a con man. Maybe then we’ll quit laughing at him. Maybe.
I emailed Rusty Humphries, the radio host he mentioned. Rusty responded that he knows Todd Cefaratti and belive him to be sincere and trustworthy. He did specify that he was not involved in the business side of the organization but found Mr. Cefaratti to be honorable.
I’ll give him a pass on making a few uninformed comments on a website. Of course I have no interest in joining a national organization and am wary of anyone claiming to represent “The Tea Party.” Too many people out there are trying to take a grassroots movement, package it, label it and turn it to their specific causes.
It’s happened here repeatedly.
Hi Kelly, thank you for the honest investigation and posting of the actual facts you recovered. It is obvious here that some people on this thread have an agenda just to smear our tea party organization no matter what we have done or evidence we provide them. It is obvious no matter what is said they won’t accept it and try to continue to smear, using old liberal media attack stories on us and so on. Ok, we are adults and can take it. So be it.
We were never appealing you to join or not join our tea party organization, but rather that we will provide you if you or anyone that wants it, lots of free tools you can use to advance the movement including event information, free websites, daily newsletter. The great thing about it is it is there for those that want to use it free of charge and those that do not do not have to. I wish you well on your tea party organization and nothing but the best success. Thank you again for your honest posting.
This is the end of my comments on this thread. I think more than enough evidence has been given to show our organization is a top sincere part of tea party movement making a huge difference. Take care everyone and please stick together in supporting the tea party movement. Remember, the progressives are our opponents, not other conservatives trying to do their best to help.
You “laugh” at me you say for starting a nonprofit organization that recruits 15,000 new people every week to the movement. We also have a member base over 300,000 that is growing every week by that 15,000. We also have hundreds of thousands of hits every day on our website. We are also on the Drudge Report front and center every week. Check the top space tomorrow Friday 3/4 and we will be there about every 10 clicks or so. While you are at it, check Newsmax every week. We are partners with them getting the word out in their headline news once every week. What is funny about that? Oops, didn’t do your research again did you before the blind smear? And your defense is referring to an organization run by someone other than yourself? Sounds like Mr. Robinson runs a great conservative organization and I commend him for it and helping the movement.
The question is not what Mr. Robinson has done but what have you personally done to recruit people to the tea party or conservative movement other than attack some that are actually got off the sofa and doing so? Give us a number, how many have you recruited this week? 1000? 500? 10? 1? We will await anxiously for your response.
Bump for later.
Those numbers are hard to believe. 15,000 per week? You're talking about hundreds of thousands if not millions of people. Or are you exaggerating a bit?
Multi-level marketing works that way. ;)
For a conservative “big wheel” this dude doesn’t know much about FR.
Perhaps he could ask Dan Rather about us.
Couldn't stay away, huh? (Okay, sorry I'm laughing again.)
I'm not talking about being on the Drudge Report as a result of a paid advertisement. You've "spent $181,000 of your "donations" on Google, Facebook and other websites for advertising and search engine optimization.". Of course one might expect to see your advertising banners around the internet.
I'm talking about having Matt Drudge link to your website as a source of news and information, right there alongside FoxNews, etc. - not as a result of paid advertising.
There's a world of difference, one of several orders of magnitude, between "helping the movement" and your "recruiting" efforts, imo. "Several donors to the site contacted by CBS 5 News said they were under the impression they were joining the official tea party when they donated to the website. The populist tea party movement is not an official national political party."
You've come into someone else's "house" here, made it quite clear that you had no idea where you had landed or who the target audience was. You've done little but insult, disparage and demean from your very first post. I congratulate you for a most auspicious and impressive introduction, the likes of which I've seldom (if ever) seen on freerepublic. I've come to my own conclusions about your motives, and I trust others will come to their own as well.
As for me, I'm done with you.
Have a great day.
LOL! That was perfect.
Myself and my operations manager were also involved in the Tea Party Express event in Searchlight Nevada.
Who is your operations mananger?
And what was the extent of your involvement?
What shibumi said——and make it cash for the advertising space.
