When even Fox isn’t getting it, we have a message problem

Going forward, the [Tea Party] movement will face some challenges. Will it become a legitimate third party or will it stay as an anti-Obama protest group? For now, these folks are scaring liberal America big time.  Bill O’Reilly

Tax day Tea Party in Phoenix

Why do these people all believe that the Tea Party is strictly an anti-Obama movement? When even Fox doesn’t get it, we have a message problem.

I’m no Tea Party expert and I’ve been on the fringes of the movement – attending a few events and not joining or volunteering for any one close to home – but from what I have seen and read, the party has multiple issues and grievances with many politicians in both parties. The biggest issue is a return to the Constitution and rule of law. If Obama is guilty of not upholding his oath, then yes, he’s one of the party’s problems.  There are dozens of republicans and democrats in office who have not stood by their oaths, as well.

Read the Contract From America and while you’re there, sign it. It spells out, in 10 points, very clearly what the Partiers want to see addressed and made right again.

There’s no denying that Obama is a big issue for them (us). He is unquestionably the most left president we have ever had. Yes, we had 8 years of Bush and too much spending and yes, it should not have happened and our Republican congress is heavily to blame for it. But we have been pushed to the left so far and so fast – and Obama has done this –  that we are awake and not going to stand for it.

We need to reframe the message and make sure that it’s not all Obama, all the time. The left is writing the narrative and just like the Constitution, we need to take the story back!

The Freedom Pub – come for happy hour, it’s all day!

I was invited to join a really cool website: The Freedom Pub.org

I’m inviting you to go check it out, too. It seems well put together and web design is very good.

But more importantly, the content is and well be terrific!  I think it will be a great place to network and meet other patriots and tea partiers.  And will be a great resource for ideas and opinions.

Let me know or better yet, let them know what you think!

This is a HIT! You’ll love it! H/t the Freedom Pub

A Stark Contrast: Remembering our Victims, those dead and alive.

The moving empty chairs at the Oklahoma Memorial

From the pictures and the televised memorial this morning, this is the most beautiful memorial to a horrific event in our history.

Contrast that to Ground Zero in NYC, today:

Site of the 9/11 attacks in NYC, 2010

What a disgrace to the memory of those dead and those who survived that because of politics and infighting, nothing has been done. Shame on all those involved in this current situation.

And pray God that these things never happen again.

New Tea Party infiltration attempts. This time with ties to the WH.

The Coffee Party didn’t work. Crashtheteaparty.org was an abysmal failure. Now we have theother95%.com.  And according to Erick Erickson at RedState.com, it appears to have a shadowy presence behind it’s existence.

Astroturfing is what Erick calls this new counter movement. This site has connections that trail back toMoveOn.org, Democracy in Action, the Center for American Progress (John Podesta),  the Obama WH and more directly, Cass Sunstein. It’s goal is to discredit and infiltrate the Tea Party movement through sneaky methods.

God Bless these patriots who keep the light on those who are trying to defame and discredit true American descent.

Read on from RedState.com:

Astroturf is the act of professional interest groups designing campaigns that appear to be grassroots efforts, but are not. It is what the left has accused the tea parties of being. Only more and more it looks like the anti-tea party movement is truly astroturfing.

Writing on January 15, 2010, Glenn Greenwald at Salon noted Barack Obama’s new head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein, had championed creating fake websites and using outside 501(c)(3) interest groups to act as alleged independent champions of government policy and to “cognitively infiltrate” opposition websites, etc.

In other words, Cass Sunstein has favored the government using outside parties as government propaganda agents to paint their opposition as fringe and undermine their credibility. Kind of like what has been happening with the tea party movement – lots of SEIU members pretending to be tea party activists causing violence in front of TV cameras.

Sunstein advocates that the Government’s stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups.” He also proposes that the Government make secret payments to so-called “independent” credible voices to bolster the Government’s messaging

Considering Sustein’s recommendations, it is not far removed to speculate the Obama administration is behind a new anti-tea party website called The Other 95, which defends the government from tea party criticisms and attacks the tea party movement as fringe.

The website purports to be authentically grassroots, though one must wonder when the last time was any grassroots activist took the time to defend the government.

The designer is affilated with MoveOn.org and other leftwing sites and causes.

But most notable, the donations page makes donations out to Democracy in Action. Democracy in Action is not for individual activists to use. It is for small and medium sized 501(c)(3) organizations and others on the left. Among its clients? ACORN, True Majority, NAACP, and others.

Hmmmm. . . .

Let’s also remember that Center for American Progress, led by Obama’s transition team director John Podesta, has regular 8 a.m. phone calls to coordinate activity on the left.

It’s a play right out of Lenin’s handbook, forget Alinsky, to call the authentic “inauthentic” and then create something inauthentic demanding it be called “authentic.”

Rep. Anthony Weiner: Comedian, Philosopher | The Daily Caller – Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment

Lengthy (9 minutes)  but worth listening to. He talks about screwing with the Tea Party via twitter, how they can’t stop punching O’Reilly in the nose and how net neutrality isn’t dead, among other things.
