A place that wants you money in exchange for cheap tee shirts and pins.
E-mail them and find out.
The register is Todd Cefaratti from Gilbert AZ who owns the business Glengary Inc. You may be on to something. His name is coming up associated with several data collection companies like reverseleadclub.com. Glengary Inc is an internet marketing company.
This may be a legit group or it may be a front to collect names for data miners. (I lean towards the latter).
That’s why it is good to check out everything before you sign up.
Site is paid for by a political action committee called “Stop This Insanity Inc. PAC”. I’m thinking it’s a GOP operative trying to make a fast buck during “Recovery Summer”. I don’t begrudge capitalism, but that site is a bit extreme. It wants personal info, your money, and in return you get some t-shirt or pin to wear, turning you into a walking billboard for this site.

A couple of guys that need to suppliment their income?
As the TEA Party has no organization or ‘leaders’, it has to be a scam.
Thanks for outing them.
It looks like this blog was started to look in to the validity of our organization. First of all I want to thank those that are skeptical when looking at organizations of the tea party movement. The more these things are checked on and verified, the better for the movement. We are a national nonprofit 501 c4 organization for the tea party movement. All our records are public and you can see that the majority of the donations taken in go right back out to promote and recruit for the tea party movement. Our opponents are set on destroying our movement because of the successes we have achieved at the ballot box and other efforts. In a nutshell, our movement is about limited government, free markets, following the original US Constitution as the founding fathers intended and individual responsibility. We welcome anyone in to our movement from all races, creeds, colors, backgrounds and political parties that support these same core American principles.
When you are a conservative minded group, I have found that the liberal media views you as an enemy and will look to attack you without any basis if they think they can hurt you in any way. I am just an average middle America dad trying to do what I see best for my country and my family. I never thought the liberals and liberal media would go after a non celebrity like me, but they do. It will not stop us though. In fact it does the opposite and makes us even more determined to help save this country.
To get more specifics on our organization and the tea party movement in general, go to our website of www.theteaparty.net. We have specific information on what donations are used for, what the tea party movement is about and much more. Every tool on the website is free to anyone that wants to get involved in the movement. Free tea party websites, free blog, free newsletter, free event information, free online register to vote, etc. We are funded 100% by voluntary donations from those willing to give to support the tea party movement. Moms, dads, grandma's, grandpa's donate. Our average donation amount is about $50. We invest the majority of our donations to recruit as many Americans to the tea party movement as possible and educate them on the movement and events. We aggressively market the movement in places such as Fox News, Drudge Report, Google, Newsmax and more. This helps us average about 15,000 new people every week that join the tea party movement through our website. We also provide some donors who donate $100 or more tea party items when they donate free of charge.
We also have used donations for events like our bus tour for 9/12 last year that started with senate candidate in Nevada Sharron Angle and ended at the US Capitol on 9/12. We were also one of the largest sponsors at CPAC this year in Washington DC where we had a booth and lots of behind the scenes involvement with conservatives at the annual convention. We are currently planning more events including a town hall meeting with republicans prior to the Iowa caucus and even involvement in co sponsoring republican presidential debates.
Anyway, I hope now you see that our organization and my personal motives are sincere to helping the tea party movement. I am a father of two little girls and felt compelled to start an organization to help my country and my girls in the process. I hope you will all be compelled to do the same as I did.
I invite any of you still skeptical to visit our website of www.theteaparty.net and sign up for the free newsletter, event calendar, websites and more. Remember, 90% who join, join without donating a cent and those 10% who are able to donate are very much appreciated. Our liberal opponents are well funded and we have to stay in the media as much as possible to combat their unfounded attacks on the tea party movement and liberty in general. I am confident when you get involved with us on a day to day basis that you will see that our motives are sincere in helping this country.
Thank you all for inquiring and God Bless.
Bump for later.
After reading this story,
It looks like a sham, and shameful diversion from the tea party faithful’s efforts. These are the kinds of things that will destroy the tea party.
Swampsniper, you were on to something here!

All Tea Party groups are NOT created equal! BEWARE!
By now conservatives ought to know they will be used by a bunch of political hacks at any opportunity, just like the left deceives blacks, hispanics, women. I know some of us would like to actually know who and what we are supporting. Well, there is a ‘Tea Party’ group out there, who, in my opinion, is only in the game to fund raise and line their pockets and support some people who simply are NOT what the grass roots of the ‘Tea Party’ believe in.
Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing, people!
From what I can find out about the principal players in TheTeaparty.net and The Tea Party News Network and their political action committee Western Representation PAC, they are TOO closely aligned with Grover Norquist to ever be considered as part of ‘The Tea Party”. Amnesty, which Norquist has always favored, is a subject I cannot find addressed in any of their publications. But, one of their principals, a ‘community organizer’ by the name of Dustin Stockton penned this last year:
“Amidst all the red-meat speeches at CPAC, Grover Norquists address stood out for me. Dont get me wrong: I love to get fired up by a great speaker as much as anyone else , but the real opportunity at gatherings like CPAC is to share strategy and figure out how to win. Grovers speech had hardly any big applause lines, but for my money, it was one of the most informative speeches at the conference. If you want an overview of the entire American political system, and how conservatives can take it back, in less than half an hour, Grovers your guy. Do yourself and our movement a favor and take a look. Youre sure to learn a thing or two I know I did!”
We conservatives had better ‘learn a thing or two’ and do it fast! Recently we wrote how blogger Robert Spencer, who won the vote for best blogger at CPAC, was told by this same ‘tea party’ group he could accept the award IF he did not discuss Norquist or his radical Islam associates. It appears that CPAC is now just another subsidiary of Grover Norquist and he is the head guru of the hijacked ‘tea party’ group, teaparty.net and Tea Party News Network.
Now, if you don’t know who Grover Norquist is, and what he really stands for, you better find out or stay away from the voting booth, because he is no conservative. He wrote the Bush/McCain Amnesty. Yes, he talks the good game of no new taxes, less spending and he does it all for GROVER, and for the likes of Karl Rove. Where you find one, you usually find the other. Rove brought Grover into the Bush White House who brought in all his radical Islam associates along with Jack Abramoff. Do remember that Rove heads pacs to oust Tea Party candidates, but contributes 4 million dollars to Norquist!
“Karl Rove has founded a new group designed not to beat Democrats, but to destroy a wing of his own coalition: the Tea Party. The newly-formed Conservative Victory Project, an “offshoot” of Rove’s American Crossroads super PAC, is designed to pump big money into local congressional primaries and prevent Tea Party-endorsed candidates from scoring Senate nominations.”
They can’t have it both ways...be FOR the Tea Party, but against the candidates and policies the grass roots Tea Party stands for. Conservatives!!! You need to spend more time cleaning out your own ranks instead of trying to take down the democrats. You’re being destroyed from within!
[snip]TheTeaParty.net is a division of Stop This Insanity Inc. and is a national non-profit 501 (c)(4) organization created in 2009 for the education and advancement of the constitutional conservative values of the Tea Party movement.
