    Tea Party Express . Org ^ | 1/31/2010 | Lloyd Marcus
    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. Seems...

    The Plain Dealer had reported that a traveling nurse named Barbara Brooks owned up to the letters. Brooks told the newspaper that Steward is her husband, and that while he denied they're still married, she reportedly said he is "making up all kinds of garbage" for fear of being targeted by "right-wing crazies."

    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...

    The folks at the uber-liberal website Daily Kos are showing their political bias this evening with a new poll claiming Tuesday's special Senate election in Massachusetts is all tied up. What makes this laughable is the Real Clear Politics average -- including the DK poll -- has Republican candidate Scott Brown leading Democrat Martha Coakley by 6.2 points. Here are the most recent poll numbers: Monday, January 18 Race/Topic (Click to Sort) Poll Results Spread Massachusetts Senate - Special Election Politico/InAdv Brown 52, Coakley 43 Brown +9 Massachusetts Senate - Special Election PJM/CrossTarget (R) Brown 52, Coakley 42 Brown +10...

    On November 19th, Rush Limbaugh caused a stir when he mentioned PrisonPlanet.com on his radio show and linked to them on his website, touting their article 'With Hurricanes At Thirty Year Low, Gore Turns To Photoshop'. By the end of the day, though, Limbaugh or his handlers had tried to erase all signs of the endorsement, as Paul Joseph Watson pointed out in his article Rush Limbaugh Censors Mention Of Prison Planet From His Own Archives. 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...

    This writer (very slightly) knew Arianna Huffington a long time ago when she was … a Newt Gingrich Acolyte. Then Newt’s political star fell and she … reinvented herself. (She wouldn’t remember me; she is perhaps the virtuoso social climber of our generation and I was — and remain — far too small a potato to be of any possible interest to her.) That was back in the days when she was launching the anti-MoveOn.org, Resignation.com, calling for Bill Clinton to resign…. Times change…. Slightly later, I happened to attend a presentation that she made in the process of reinventing...

    Not sure if anyone has picked this up yet, but the editors at the Huffington Post have pulled the fake Limbaugh "slavery" quotes from a 2006 Jack Huberman article. Huberman's book was one of the original sources for the fake quotes, apparently picking them up from the wikipedia entry where they first appeared. A note at the beginning of the article now states: Editor's Note: An earlier version of this post contained quotes attributed to Rush Limbaugh, which Limbaugh has since denied making. As is our policy when a fact in a blog post is called into question, we gave...

    W.H. aide blasts bloggers: 'Take off their pajamas' By Eric Zimmermann - 10/12/09 10:50 AM ET Liberal bloggers are up in arms over a reported jab from a White House adviser. The uproar began this weekend when NBC's John Harwood, after reporting on a gay rights march in Washington, relayed a dismissive quote from an anonymous administration official. "And for a sign of how seriously the White House does or doesn't take this opposition one adviser told me today those bloggers need to take off their pajamas, get dressed and realize that governing a closely divided country is complicated and...

    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:

    As AMERICAblog has reported, NBC's chief Washington, D.C. correspondent John Harwood says that—according to the White House—the president doesn't take today's Equality March seriously: Barack Obama is doing well with 90% or more of Democrats so the White House views this opposition as really part of the Internet left fringe. For a sign of how seriously the White House does or doesn't take this opposition, one adviser told me those bloggers need to take off the pajamas, get dressed, and realize that governing a closely divided country is complicated and difficult. And here's the MSNBC video: http://tinyurl.com/ykbgd29 I'll take this...

    At the conservative How to Take Back America Conference over the weekend, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., had some harsh words for President Obama. Franks told those assembled: “Obama's first act as president of any consequence, in the middle of a financial meltdown, was to send taxpayers' money overseas to pay for the killing of unborn children in other countries. Now I gotta tell you, a president that will do that, here's almost nothing that you should be surprised at after that. You shouldn’t, we shouldn't be shocked that he does all these other insane things. A president that has lost...

    The sickos over at Kos never cease to amaze me. Irving Kristol died today. He was a great writer and thinker and admired on both sides of the aisle--even my own liberal father loved his columns and books. Yet here I see a thread on DailyKos tonight where they are reveling in his death, and even hoping his wife (and Bill Kristol's Mom) Gertrude Himmelfarb would die soon too. Here are the lovely comments... Paging Bill O'Reilly. He's been silent on them for a while.

And that can just not be allowed, he must be DESTROYED. 9,000 Individual Contributors have sent money to his opponent, Rob Miller, in the last 15 hours, via just ONE website, ActBlue. 3,846 KOS KLOWNS have donated over $135,000 ALONE. Could Freepers donate that kind of money to a single candidate in the same amount of time?? We have NOTHING that even comes close to competing with this, and this should serve as a MASSIVE wakeup call for us, to get it together, FAST... ActBlue cleared FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS...

This is the ACTBLUE page they are sending the money through. http://www.actblue.com/directory/SC/all/fed-house What makes this even worse is that Joe Wilson WAS CORRECT. Even though the bill SAYS it will not provide funds for Illegal Aliens, SCOTUS has already ruled that excluding illegal aliens from government Healthcare Programs is ILLEGAL SEE: http://www.bu.edu/law/central/jd/organizations/journals/pilj/vol17no2/documents/17-2CheslerNote.pdf They put it in the Bill for COVER, KNOWING that SCOTUS would strike that part of it!!!

    “A careful reading of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution will not reveal any intrinsic right to health care, food or shelter. That’s because there isn’t any. This “right” has never existed in America,” Mackey wrote in the piece. In response, a Facebook group called, “Boycott Whole Foods,” was founded, and today it has almost 23,000 members who have pledged to stop shopping there. Whole Foods spokesperson Libba Letton said “there’s no telling,” whether or not the company’s bottom line will be impacted by the boycott.
