    The other day I received an email from a friend who had heard some false and malicious attacks against the Tea Party Express. He was concerned and wrote me to ask about it because I've been a part of the Tea Party Express since its inception last year. When I was talking to the rest of our team about this email I found out that most everyone else had been approached by someone asking them similar questions about a whole range of rumors, accusations, allegations, smears and mischaracterizations of what we at the Tea Party Express are supposedly about.

    How Republicans won the Internet By Mindy Finn and Patrick Ruffini Sunday, January 24, 2010 Scott Brown's supporters became fans of the candidate on Facebook, where they commented on his status updates and uploaded their own photos. The Republican Senate hopeful took to Twitter, using the #masen hashtag to let his followers know how the race was going. His campaign powered its field operation through targeted online ads and Web-based spreadsheets, and raised $12 million from 157,000 individual donations in the last two weeks of the race. After he won last week, his team live-streamed the election-night party in Boston...

Watson noted "Any links to the Prison Planet.com story, which were prominently featured all over Limbaugh’s website, have also been deleted and replaced with...

    More than 80 percent of Democrats say they believe Sen. Joe Lieberman should be stripped of his chairmanship in the Senate if he ends up supporting a Republican filibuster of health care reform. According to the Huffington Post, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America ordered a study a few days ago, in which they polled over 800 voters. The main question in the poll was whether Lieberman - an Independent who usually caucuses with the Democrats - should lose his chairmanship of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. 81 percent of Democrats responded that they...

    It turns out that the White House likes to ignore all kinds of “community organizing,” now that Barack Obama has won the election. A march by gay-rights supporters the day after Obama offered them nothing more than a repeat of the same promises he made during the campaign on single-gender marriage and Don’t Ask - Don’t Tell got a derisive response from the White House. John Harwood reports that the Obama administration basically told the “fringe” Internet left to shut up and get real:

Whole Foods spokesperson Libba Letton said “there’s no telling,” whether or not the company’s bottom line will be impacted by the boycott.

Tracy Viselli, who attended Netroots Nation, agreed with Cooper and admitted that liberal bloogers are ceding this valuable territory to conservatives. "Twitter is a news funnel," she said.

    Relying instead on union lackeys and thugs, President Obama's vaunted 13 million name email list and his grassroots community organizing group "Organizing for America have failed miserably to answer his call to assist him in passing his health care reform package.

One would think the Obamabots would be swarming these town halls, ready to defend their Messiah and put pressure on wavering members to give their hero what he wants.

    You could be forgiven for thinking that a serious campaign is afoot - aided and abetted by the national Republican Party - to question Barack Obama's citizenship. Over the past two weeks, an inordinate amount of news coverage has been afforded to "birthers," conspiracy theorists who claim that the President was not born in Hawaii, as his birth records indicate, but in Kenya. It is not Obama's right-wing opponents, however, who are devoting the most attention to this obscure, Internet-driven "movement," if one can even use that label to describe such a paranoid groupuscule. Rather, it's liberals, bent on portraying...

At Conservatives 4 Palin, Mel traces the genesis of the rumors through the land of the loonies. Start at the bottom of the post and read up. In a telephone interview with Josh Meyer of the LA Times, an FBI spokesman in Alaska dismissed the leftist lies that an FBI...

    IF you believe the White House, 30 million Ameri cans support a govern ment health-care takeover. But if you look at the funding behind the ObamaCare campaign, it's the same few leftist billionaires, union bosses and partisan community organizers pushing the socialized medicine agenda. Let's connect the dots. On Thursday, a national "grass-roots" coalition called Health Care for America Now will march on Capitol Hill to demand universal health care. The ground troops won't have to march far. HCAN, you see, is headquartered at 1825 K Street in Washington, DC -- smack in the middle of Beltway lobby land. In...

    You remember Jessie MacBeth, don’t you? He was the fake “Army Ranger” thug who lied about serving in Iraq and was promoted by the Iraq Veterans Against the War until milbloggers exposed him as a total fraud. Well, meet a guy who makes Jessie MacBeth look like a choir boy.

    ---snip--- 2) From DKos: Tomorrow, my husband and I will be venturing into the wilds disguised as a news crew to do some in person interviewers with teabaggers here in Rhode Island (if we can find any). We’ve got some questions lined up to ask, but I’d love to get suggestions! The great thing about owning professional video equipment is that armed with it, you can pass yourself off as being a professional news crew pretty easily. So tomorrow, “WSFR” is going to send a cameraman and on air news personality out into the field to cover this “teabagging” phenomenon....

    Acts of protest tend to be synonymous with the left and are usually considered unsurprising on the right. However, when conservatives demonstrate - liberals take notice in a big way. On Fox News Channel's April 7 "Your World," host Neil Cavuto reported that the Tax Day tea party protests on April 15 will be "infiltrated" by their political opponents and led by left-wing activist organizations. He specifically named Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). "Only eight days before a nationwide tea party, some over-caffeinated crashers aiming to lay waste to it," Cavuto said. "Reports of very well-organized infiltrators...
  • Who is spreading fear, hatred and lies in Pittsburgh shooter story?

    Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 6 April, 2009 | David Codrea
    An insidious new meme is being propagated following the Pittsburgh slayings--that rhetoric from conservatives, gun rights activists, the "right wing"-- is responsible for Richard Poplawski's alleged fear that Obama was going to take away guns. The first thing we need acknowledge is this is but one more case of the media rushing to judgment before the facts are in. There's a whole lotta speculation going on. As we've noted before, Obama's own words taken from the official White House website reveal his goal of banning an entire class of semiautomatic firearms. His attorney general has revived the call. And he's...

    "Shortly before Markos Moulitsas blamed Glenn Beck for instigating the senseless shooting of three Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, police officers on Saturday, the proprietor of the far-left website Daily Kos said that conservatives would rather shoot cops than organize to win the next election. He also wrote during the same Twitter discussion, "With no Veep to shoot people, folks are taking things into their own hands." Such was revealed Sunday by a self-proclaimed Daily Kos diarist named Tommy Christopher who was so disgusted by these comments he has actually resigned his membership (h/t Hot Air via ConservaThink)".That was written by Noel Sheppard...

    This weekend, three Pittsburgh police officers were gunned down in cold blood by a disturbed gunman during an hours long standoff in what is an otherwise quiet suburb. You probably wouldn’t normally think that’s a source for clever one liners, but then, you aren’t a DailyKos kid are you?

    The number 1 recc'd Diary at Daily KOS (Lamestream media chat site) is an article about our responses to Obama's release of Secret documents pertaining to the War today, under the title above. (I refuse to give KOS the hits by linking, it's on the front page if you want to read it.) Given how KOS diaries seem to magicly end up as MSM pundit talking points within hours, I think we better be informed of this. It goes on like this: "As an attorney who spent her formative practice years defending the Constitution, all I can say about what...
