ObamaSeuss: "Oh! How Bad The President Has Been!"

This book created under the protection of the Fair Use Act (described after the book)



Well, there certainly has been a lot of talk about Obama channeling Dr Seuss and for good reason: selling an oppressive, communist-style agenda using children's media and the fond, innocent memories that go along with such things is pretty gross: like Hitler and Stalin kissing babies and smiling, laughing and charming the people with their uplifting spirits and appearance of being jovial men with big hearts, then going back to "work", so to speak, as they did. But I digress. This is supposed to be a fun time, so without further allusions to historical precedent, here is the whole goll-darned illustrated book! Well okay! We're always happy to do our part! All original! Have fun!

A word and lesson about copyright law. A few people, obviously very loud leftists trying to discourage this book, have said such a thing would violate copyright law in so much as a parody mocks the style of a work which is allowed, while satire using the style of a work is not quite so allowed unless there is a significant social, artistic or political connection - reason - to use a certain style to make a point.

For example, a book called The Cat NOT In The Hat used that style to re-tell the O.J. Simpson murder story. The court ruled against the book for copyright infringement because Simpson had no connection to Dr. Seuss. Had Simpson used an alibi that had, for example, been called the "Cat In The Hat Defense" then the situation likely would have been much different.


In this case the connection is clear: Obama's use of Seuss has caused much social 
awareness and some outrage, and people from Sarah Palin to John Stewart have held up Seuss books while giving their own barely modified versions of famous Seuss rhymes, and that is allowed because 1. They are not charging anyone to hear or see it (though Stewart's show used it in the context of a commercial broadcast) and 2. there is a very significant connection to the Suess work thanks to the President making the Seuss rhyme style an agency of delivering a message of societal significance. Political cartoons abound with Seuss allusions. This is exactly that. And the Fair Use Act allows for the creation and exhibition of this online book. Do know that this book, itself, however is copyrighted.


That's the chemistry of how copyright law, parody and satire operate together. Hope you have enjoyed it.

A QUICK WORD ABOUT A NEW RUMOR BEING SPREAD BY ANTAGONISTS AGAINST THE TEA PARTY FIRE ANTS

There is a brand-new Twitter post being circulated by Kristen Snow White who has for the better part of a year claimed I was Jack Cashill. Jack is a good writer and a solid conservative so why that should be an "attack" is beyond me, but if you have not already read Jack's story about TPFA and himself, you can read about it here.

In a true fit of, IMO, lunacy, Snow White is now claiming she spoke to Kathy and myself, that Kathy and claiming that Kathy and I are somehow, for some reason, deeply regretful about our actions (we remain extremely proud of our accomplishments and all Tea Party Fire Ants and affiliated groups and friends) and the statements Kristen Snow White is spreading in this post are ridiculously false. 


Here is Snow White's virtually entirely untrue new statement being circulated by her friends who are also IMO total paid leftist trolls. Screenshots used here via the Fair Use Act:




Needless to say, Kathy never spoke to Snow White much less agreed to a "open letter of apology" or anything else, claimed above. This IMO is clear defamation of Kathy's good name by saying Kathy used the tea party to advance herself, and more, and is amazing and even entertainly good timing, because just last week Kathy got great, good news - one of the most successful cyber-crime lawyers in the U.S. - a huge winner - has agreed to take her case (Kathy has an email which confirms it). Needless to say, that lawyer is likely to subpoena Kristen Snow White's phone records, Kathy will provide hers, and it will be clear that no conversation ever took place. IMO what Kristen has done is not only outrageous, but incomprehensibly irresponsible: Kathy does have law enforcement involved regarding her being harassed and threatened by trolls, she does have lawyers involved, and she is on very good terms with countless Congressional offices. Why anyone would continue to pick a fight with someone so esteemed for her achievements and so well-connected to the people who would matter in something like this is totally bewildering.



As for her statement about me agreeing to anything, I have never communicated to her and if I ever did it was many months ago on Twitter and in no other way. All this stuff about me agreeing to make an announcement or anything else is patently untrue. Period.

She and her pals have said I was Jack Cashill for over a year, and she makes mention of that year, so presumably they are sticking to their story while deciding to stop these kinds of attacks against Cashill, and if true, is the one smart thing in that post:




Anyway, that's that. This needed to be said. Thanks for your patience.


On a good note, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you to keep an eye on this blog, because we have something coming up very soon that every reader who is not a big fan of Obama is simply going to  love. I guarantee it. It's really fun! Stay tuned!

BENGHAZI-TRUTH'S PROBLEMS WITH THE BOOK "13 HOURS" AND THE "BENGHAZI TRUTH TOUR"

All Images/Media used via the Fair Use Act


2/22/2015 UPDATE: "13 HOURS" AUTHOR MITCHELL ZUCKOFF APPEARS TO BE A BIG-TIME LIBERAL, AND CATEGORICALLY IS A BIG-TIME LIBERAL ACCORDING THE NEWS BUSTERS FROM MAY 7, 2007. 

As we go though this, open the links designated by the orange letters to confirm what is being said if you have any doubt as to what has been written, here.

Before we get started, I have just one question: "Where the hell is Fox News - again?!" I mean, do they do any research on these people they showcase or not? Fox in my estimation has got to be the laziest collective of so-called journalists I have ever heard of. They have a big Special on "13 Hours" and apparently don't check the background of the book's author to verify his political objectivity or ask why the very few guys like Paronto can walk around and chatter like monkeys about Benghazi but even Fox itself reported that Obama was hiding 30 Witnesses - a "report" confirmed by the Benghazi Select Committee. Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. Wake up, Fox! Get with the frigging program! For God's sake! I mean, seriously!

Well, I decided to check up on the "13 Hours" "definitive story of what happened on the ground in Benghazi" author Mitchell Zuckoff and guess what


Already smell something rotten - again? I do, obviously.

There's more. Much more.

Zuckoff, happily pounding the keyboard away for the very uber-liberal Salon, wrote this:

"As the House Select Committee on Benghazi begins its public hearings today, it seems likely at some point to focus on the contractors’ revelations last week that the CIA’s base chief repeatedly delayed them from responding during the crucial first minutes of the attack. It may also examine new disclosures about the Benghazi contractors’ extraordinary acts of heroism and the approximately two-dozen lives they saved during 13 hours of assaults by terrorists throughout the long night.


As valuable as those inquires could prove, it would be a missed opportunity if the committee failed to treat what happened in Benghazi as entree into a broader examination of contractors’ enormous role, and their treatment as disposable assets, in the protection of U.S. personnel, facilities and interests around the world."

Do you know what this is? It's another way of repeating the mantra of democrats on the Benghazi investigation. It is not "Is Obama responsible?" but rather it is "Let's not dwell on the facts which may lead up to that conclusion, let's just concentrate on making sure this never happens again."

He's quoted by some pretty far left sources as an authority on social security(?), such as The Progressive Socialist Democrat. No, I did not make up that name.

When Zuckoff decided to write a biography, usually a long and sometimes complex process, on whom did he chose to spend his time and energy? One of the most stridently liberal filmmakers Hollywood has ever known, Robert Altman. Want to know how stridently liberal Altman is? He has been quoted as saying

When I see an American flag flying, it’s a joke. — Robert Altman

Zuckoff teaches at Boston University. What kind of place of higher learning is Boston University? Here are a few examples which appear generally representative:


Howard Zinn, political Science Professor, is a socialist activist.

David Carr. Until his unfortunate death a few days ago, Boston U's Professor of Communication was David Carr, not a mere New York Times reporter, but a New York Times columnist, or as we are inclined to categorize NYT columnists, "Hate Spewers".
By way of example, what did Carr write in 2012? "Conservatives Should Stop 'Tired' Whining About Liberal Bias".

The Boston University Newspaper prints "non-prejudiced" tidbits like this.




This is the world in which Zuckoff lives his daily life while writing things for places like ultra-liberal Salon.


And oh yes, at the Boston Globe, he was all over the Bain issue like most liberal journalists who were generally trying to use the issue to derail Republican candidates in 2012, so IMO there is plainly more than a hint of activism present in Zuckoff's past.

Scroll down to the bottom of this page to the paragraphs in purple to conclude this update in which it is shown Zuckoff's book "13 Hours" not only seemingly very strongly attempts to exonerate Obama of any wrongdoing about the response to the attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi, but that message is being carried all over the nation by places like the New York Times.

**************

2/19/2015 UPDATE IN RED, BELOW

Despite the term "Benghazi Truth" in the Tour name, we have several problems with circumstances surrounding the book and consequently, the tour. Please know WE DO NOT ENDORSE THE BOOK TOUR and as a side note, as you shall see, IMO the tour name was suspiciously arrived-at.

First, if you know us, we need say nothing about our work on the Benghazi issue. But new readers abound, so it should be said as a quick intro that this group was given an unprecedented 3 effusive letters of thanks  by Congressman Frank Wolf for our 17 months of consecutive days (that's right, we did not even stop for Christmas or New Years) campaign to see Wolf's resolution HRes36 enacted to establish a Benghazi Select Committee(read the article proceeding this one for more on that, and yes, obviously it was successful). Graphics we did for the Benghazi issue reached as high as 14 million views on Twitter. We successfully boycotted Fox News demanding mostly more Benghazi coverage  and it appears we got it, too: on the first night of the second boycott with only one day warning Fox dashed out a previously unannounced Benghazi Special. Rather than have our demands deflated, mockery from places like Newsweek unwittingly legitimized the boycotts into a smash success (Thank you, David Friedlander). 


You may want to take a peek at the video below for an encapsulation of our efforts (it looks better full-size on YouTube).





The point is, We Know Benghazi. So when 13 Hours came out and it was clear no great news would come out of it, quite frankly I, for one, skimmed it and shrugged it off. We all knew there was a stand down order, we all knew the timeline, and unless you wanted the thrill of a first-person account of what you knew already, there was not much point. I was a little bothered by the fact that so many witnesses were silenced and these three book authors were not, and while suspicions remained, we were more focused on other things. Now, however, given the emerging new landscape on this issue, I am bothered by the fact that these guys were allowed to speak. In fact, I am very much bothered by it.

The seeming tip-off that something was amiss came when something unusual began to occur; suddenly there was all this talk, meant to chide TPFA, apparently, about a "Benghazi Truth Tour". The problem was that that was coming from the very trolls who have been attacking and indeed threatening the Fire Ant's Benghazi efforts on social media and Kathy, particularly, with calls to her home for nearly two years. Yes, that's right. The same trolls who called our letters from Rep Wolf fakes even after World Net Daily had confirmed their authenticity by calling Wolf's Chief Of Staff where pushing this Benghazi Truth Tour hard! They were all there in considerable force - Stan, who posted an image of a gravestone with Kathy's name on it and then posted a map to her unlisted address; Kristen Snow White who IMO rants horrendously at Kathy and in fact called her at home with unpleasant messages - repeatedly (you should see the IMO totally unhinged unposted comments she leaves here); Randomthots, Devoe, the truly offensive Le Petite Homme (one of several obvious aliases) -the whole crew who harass TPFA virtually every single day, are all in pitching for the "Benghazi Truth Tour." (you will note that many of these so-called conservatives use Twitter handles which IMO display an obvious leftist stereotyping contempt, arrogant and seething, for the very conservatives they claim to be - Bumpkin, Randomthots, Dribblethots, Le Petite Homme ("The Little Man", changed to The Little Patriots when called out for it), etc and some more directly threatening, like Kathy's Nightmare)


So suddenly, as you might expect, there are alarms going off in my imagination loud enough to send a city population to the bomb shelters. Now suddenly this whole thing stinks. It smells rotten. Really rotten. (I'm sorry, but after all we did for the cause, and the name not being directly connected to the book title, I cannot help but think, in my opinion, that the name "Benghazi Truth" Tour was pilfered from us specifically to confuse the innocent, but so be it).


Predictably, the inescapable thought is pressing hard, now: these 3 authors are walking around not just talking about Benghazi, but collaborate, no less, on a book about what happened on the ground in Benghazi. Clearly, this makes no sense, because the chasm between being all over television with a book, blathering apparently no new information while others are being silenced by Obama's political machine for years about the exact same kind of information cannot be bridged without the foot-ties of suspicion firmly attached. 



So Kathy and I initially alone questioned that situation on Twitter and unsurprisingly we were - and continue to be - met with an avalanche of abuse from these same trolls along the lines of...


... who have now taken to making gross amateurish photoshop videos of Kathy, which, IMO, means as far as those abusers are concerned, Kathy rates on the political danger scale somewhere near where Sarah Palin does, because few earn that much poison from the left. Me? Oh, I had my Twitter account suspended again - what did you expect? 


Then a few of Kathy's friends (TPFA activists) jump in and an absolutely stunning Twitter exchange occurred between Amanda Williams and one of the "13 Hours" authors, Kris Paronto, the one heading on the road today, apparently for the "Benghazi Truth Tour". Look at this Twitter exchange. Read it a few times to absorb this:




Yes, you read it right. Benghazi survivor / 13 Hours co-author Kris Paronto appears to be saying that no witnesses have been silenced by Obama.


UPDATE, 12/19/2015: There has been some speculation in the last two days that the Twitter account in the screenshot making those outrageous statements might not be Kris Paronto's actual Twitter account. However, we scoured every possible piece of evidence we could find and the most conclusive of it seems to definitely confirm that it is Paronto's actual Twitter account, and that's his Twitter communication with Radio Host Lisa Benson and vice versa. And yes, that is plainly Benson's Twitter account, below, because the feed for that account is on her radio show website and her radio show website is linked to the radio station  website.




Regarding Paronto's unbelievable assertion that Obama is not silencing Benghazi witnesses, please know that Rep Gowdy, chairing the Select Committee, is still trying to get the witnesses in to testify.  Paronto also Tweeted elsewhere that the reports of the survivors being silenced was old news from in 2013 and people should get up-to-date. Paronto might try reading Breitbart from January of this year among dozens of other sources, since as a Benghazi survivor his statement is as utterly at-odds with what is common knowledge to congress ad people following the issue: Obama most definately is hiding/silencing Benghazi witnesses. 


Manifesting a further Kafka-esque allusion to this issue, Obama's Administration is still to this day claiming to be keeping the witnesses hidden to protect their safety - so safe even Congress cannot ask them what happened when a U.S. Ambassador and his aides were murdered in Benghazi. "Hillary's concussion, "the enraging video", "protecting witnesses from Congress" - the liberal democrats of this nation are so empty in the attic that they cannot even fabricate decent second-rate fiction. 


Further, Partono grossly insults all those heroes who have been silenced by Obama's political machine by saying that the silenced Benghazi heroes do not have his courage to speak - his "balls and spine" as he worded it. We can quibble over the semantics of whether he directly called all those Benghazi survivors cowards but in my opinion, he did. I think you probably share my opinion, too - this isn't rocket science. In my opinion, also, those are not the words of a "hero". In fact, in my opinion, those are the words of a real jerk, frankly, and he owes an apology to every one of the silenced witnesses and their families and he owes it to them now.


So who does say such things? Would it benefit Obama, for example, to have someone saying such things? IMO yes, very definately. You have someone - three to be exact - out there making much noise about Benghazi, giving you all the dramatic moments but nothing comes out of the book, by these three not hidden by Obama, which is damning enough to put Obama into any real legal or political jeopardy while as Benghazi Select Committee confirmed, Obama hides the others. Fancy that.


Have you heard the Benghazi Select Committee say they gleaned anything important from the book 13 Hours? Me neither. Indeed, such a book and such witnesses sucking the air out of the issue could wind up, in the long term, invoking "Benghazi fatigue" among the US citizens before anyone gets any real facts that could damage Obama legally or politically. Fancy that, too. 


With the antagonists who have dogged TPFA relentlessly with defamation, abuse and threats pushing for the book and the "Benghazi Truth Tour", one must, IMO, really wonder whom is exactly behind what.


The flip side is, how does this help the Benghazi cause? I see no way. Indeed, by Paronto categorically  "confirming" as I read it, against the words of every GOP congressman who has spoken about it, that Obama has not silenced any witnesses, I see no way at all that the book, the Tour or the tweets, do anything but help Obama enormously.


People will often be too polite - especially politicians - to call this kind of thing out, but in answer to your presumed hypothetical question, "Do I believe that the book and its authors, free to speak unlike the others, are shills for Obama, having proven particular loyalty as Obama employees in Benghazi?" My answer is, unfortunately, in my opinion, "That is just exactly how it looks". What Paronto tweeted a day or so ago is simply off the chart as far as I am concerned: it's grossly worded, appears to essentially call all the silenced Benghazi survivor heroes who did not co-author his book cowards and appears to attempt to clear Obama of any silencing or other censoring of the witnesses who are, after two and a half years, still trying to be had from Obama's political machine for questioning by the Republican-led Benghazi Select Committee.


UPDATE: Back to 13 Hours author Zuckoff. I have come to a conclusion - and I bet you have too, that will make Fox, the Left and especially Obama's people and fans extremely uncomfortable to have said out in the open air and bright sunshine: In my very, very extremely firmly held opinion ("opinion" is a must-do qualifier to avoid the hassles of legions of leftist lawyer trolls, and it is opinion, though systematically arrived-at), Fox and much of the media have been conned by a very clever pro-Obama and probably White House-organized propaganda operation to have exactly the effect it is having: to give places like the New York Times and Media Matters a way to cover for Obama on Benghazi by being able to say things like this to the world:

But as the contractors explained to Tapper, though they believe they could have done more to save American lives that night had they been allowed to leave immediately, they did not view the decision as one of "malice" towards Americans, nor did they place the blame for the decision on anyone higher up than the base chief.


As the New York Times noted , their story "fits with the publicly known facts and chronology" we already knew about the non-existent "stand down" order. For example, the Associated Press reported  last year on the disagreement between CIA leaders and security contractors about the delay to try to gather support from militia allies, citing Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland pointing to the disagreement as a possible source of the "stand down" myth.

This situation is truly horrible and this is now no time to mince words or get our undies in a bunch about invoking uncomfortable facts and questions about men whom even Fox has called heroes. Anyone can call them heroes. Everyone can call them heroes. It does not change the apparent fact that Zuckoff, as NewsBusted said in 2007, is a hard core-leftist; it does not change the fact that Zuckoff's book appears to get Obama off the hook for the stand-down order; it does not change the fact the Paranto and just a couple of others - directly connected to Zuckoff's book - are allowed to talk Benghazi while the state department is keeping a couple of dozen hidden from Congress(!) and it does not change the fact that Paronto said those others simply lacked "Balls and Spine" to speak out and claimed, contrary to the Select Committee itself, that Obama was not silencing any witnesses.

This is insane. This is plain and outright bullsh*t being performed in broad daylight in front of the world while Fox once again betrays the conservatives which made it successful by legitimizing this story without questioning the players to determine if they have a political agenda or not.


WHERE IS FOX ON THIS?! Do we have to lead another boycott again?!



Okay, let's cut the crap and get down to it. Fox will not report this. No one will report this. Not at least, until you make it impossible to ignore. I would say "spread this blog memo everywhere", but that might sound self-promoting for its own sake so I will say GET THIS INFORMATION OUT THERE. Post links to this blog, paraphrase it, use the links in this article. Anything. Anything! We - you included in heart and soul - did not work several hours a day every single day for seventeen months for a Benghazi Select Committee only to have justice for the Benghazi dead checkmated by a book written by a hard-core liberal, some unbelievably ignorant media coverage and enough incompetent GOP House members, not having the slightest idea how to handle this, will otherwise smile and nod and forget about it and thus truly and in actuality derail justice. The world needs to see Obama held to account for Benghazi by that Select Committee and IMO this book and its associations are something the Committee needs to open up like a rotten can of sardines - because it stinks to high heaven and only the most naive, child-like or truly stupid citizens cannot see what is happening with this information placed before them, now. For the sake of the Benghazi dead, for America's sake, for your kid's sake, get this information out into the world. Do not let "Obama was not responsible" from a book written by a liberal to be the narrative that denies justice to the Benghazi dead. As long as it's legal I don't care how you get the word out, please just do it. I am imploring now. Yes, I will even say I am begging, because justice for the Benghazi slain is worth it. Just do it. Just do it!


EDIT: IS IS NOW AN "ALSO" SUGGESTION. GETTING THE WORD OUT IS JOB ONE.  TPFA is about getting things done. So what to do about this? Here is what I would suggest. Be polite to the authors and IMO simply download the image of Amanda's Twitter exchange with Paronto, above, and, via the Fair Use Act, get it into the hands of every GOP congressman you can on Twitter and elsewhere, particularly those on the Benghazi Select Committee: they have been trying to get Obama to release the witnesses to testify for ages, and Paronto's remarks suggest he knows more about the issue than they do, so they need to ask him some questions, such as "why did he say over two dozen Benghazi survivor heroes lacked "balls and spines", "how does he know Obama is not silencing the other witnesses the Select Committee has been unable to get from the administration" and to "describe all the communications has he had with the Obama administration since returning from Benghazi with the understanding that neglecting to give any would, IMO, be tantamount to criminal perjury." And if Paronto shows up in your town for a book signing, be very polite, even gracious, as you quietly ask him the same things. Questions at a book signing relevant to the theme of the book are everyday occurrences and we'd love to see the videos.

Get cracking, you Fire Ants!

February Is FOLLOW KATHY AMIDON ON TWITTER Month!

FOLLOW
@TPFA_KathyA_1
On Twitter!

If you follow this blog you know why Kathy Amidon deserves to be followed: many thousands of her Twitter followers lost after the trolls at Twitter suspended her account because, plainly, she is simply too effective a conservative activist, and it's as simple as that. The trolls who defame her every day will scream otherwise in an effort to discredit her, but that's the fact of it. For the record, if you don't know, in  our extremely-firmly-held-opinion, the Twitter trolls are actually a few dozen-to-a-couple-of-hundred of Twitter safety chief Del Harvey's Perverted Justice "vigilante " pals, having given up pretending to be little girls online to sadistically harass "potential" pedophiles in favor of attacking conservatives on Twitter for dollars, in our opinion, plainly being protected from lawsuit and suspension by Harvey herself.

But why should you follow Kathy on Twitter? 

Here are a few great reasons:

You know that Kathy's efforts got TPFA three effusive thank-you's from Congressional House Representative Frank Wolf. Here's one:



What you may not know is that Kathy was in continual direct contact with Wolf's Chief-of-Staff Dan Scandling. How many other Tea Party activists do you know who not only get 3 thank you's from a congressman for one issue campaign, but exchange over 350 emails with that congressman's chief of staff to see to it that the grassroots efforts to get a Benghazi Select Committee are successful?


  
Because of this, as you know if you already follow Kathy, you will get updates and information on the Benghazi Select Committee from Kathy on Twitter usually faster than from anyone else on Twitter. That's a big plus - for you!

While most Republicans on Twitter are either RINOS who get media attention or Tea Party conservatives who do not, you will be following a Tea Party activist who does get mainstream media. A very rare and valuable person to follow!

Video

By watching Kathy and following her efforts, you'll be in great company! Even on her newer account (Twitter has suspended her for no good reason nor ever explained the suspensions SEVEN[!] times!) most of Kathy's followers have over 20,000 followers and some have over 100,000 followers - many are media experts and respected journalists. Kathy will follow you back and this puts you in direct contact with some pretty big players. One retweet from Kathy and your message gets into the hands of real movers and shakers. That's good for YOU!

In following Kathy, you will be following a tireless champion devoted to getting the word out! You can learn a lot from her creative efforts which can help make YOU a better conservative activist!

And finally, following Kathy seems to be something the leftists pretending to be conservative very obsessively don't want anyone to do. If they spent 1 percent of the time campaigning against Obama as they have against Kathy and the Tea Party Fire Ants, Obama would have lost his bid for reelection in 2012.

By the way, we were stunned to read, a few days ago, what CBS News icon Sharyl Attkisson said about how the Obama trolls have gone after her - it is exactly the same pattern, point-for-point, experienced by Kathy Amidon for the last 2 years! Defamation, threats, weird phone calls and Obama's surrogate bloggers setting up sites exclusively to attack her!

So if you are are anything from a casual observer who wants what's right to a hell-bent-for-leather fighting conservative who means it, follow Kathy Amidon! It will do wonders for the Tea Party cause leading up to the 2016 Presidential elections!

FEBRUARY IS FOLLOW KATHY AMIDON ON TWITTER MONTH, AND ONCE YOU DO, STAY FOLLOWED TO HER ALL YEAR AROUND. She'll follow you back, automatically get your tweets access to many important media people, give you great information before anyone else, will give you great ideas and you'll see news in the making before anyone else does!

FOLLOW
@TPFA_KathyA_1
On Twitter!

Make a note next to your computer and don't forget!

God Bless and may the Tea Party be stronger than ever in 2016! With your help, it will be!

OPEN LETTER TO THE 2015 U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES: John Boehner Must Not Be Speaker Again



Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of the 2015 House of Representatives,

To all of you, we need to be blunt up-front to get your attention: 


We promise every one of you this: If Boehner is re-instated as Speaker, whoever votes for Boehner, or we suspect has voted for Boehner as the House Speaker on January 6, 2015, will instantly buy for themselves a relentless  two-year campaign by us, targeted at your constituents, to have you removed in the next election cycle primary. Period.


Most of you know who we are and what we have accomplished and know that's no hollow promise. If you think you know and can work media and social media better than we do, may I remind you that we - as a group firmly ensconced on the political right - are the only group, organization or any kind of collective that has successfully boycotted Fox News - in our case demanding they move back to the right - and by successful I mean Fox ratings dropped on-average for months an astounding 22% due directly to our boycott and the ratings numbers proved it. Almost two years later Fox is still down compared to the months leading up to the boycott.  On the first night of the boycott Hannity fell an unbelievable 29% as opposed to months of continuous previous ratings right up to the night before. How would you like to lose that percentage of your voters in the next election cycle primary? That is not hyperbole or opinion, that's television history fact, under-reported though it may be, despite the very large degree of coverage we got from Newsweek, The New York Daily News, The Huffington Post and others. Unless you are better than we are at media, we suggest you listen up.


Media/campaigning is our specific combination activity of achievement. If you are new and don't know who we are and what we have done, I suggest you go to www.teapartyfireants.net and take a good look around. 


I say "relentless" in campaigning to have you removed in the next election cycle for reinstating Boehner and you know what I mean by that, too. Many of you did not want to co-sponsor the Benghazi Select Committee for fear of reprisal by Boehner. After our 17-month campaign, 191 of you did. You stood up to him. 17 months. We'll keep our promise to November of 2016 with ease, and now we have several groups joining us this time around. 


We like most of you and many of your offices have been extremely friendly with us, so we make this political warning with no small sense of the unfortunate, but we are absolutely determined to see it through. The fact is that one can barely find a Republican voter who is pleased with Boehner, now, and yet many in media are reporting that the idea that Boehner will be be removed as Speaker is unlikely. This is simply an outrageous contradiction in facts which spits in the eyes of the voters who elected you.


Boehner is so inappropriate as a Republican Speaker of the House on so many basic leadership, media and strategic levels, that it is an absurdity that he remains in that position: On the surface, his weeping face, in our opinion indicative of a much more severe psychological state than mere sentimentality, makes the entire party look like red-faced babies, and I mean he casts that image over the voters, themselves, who are sick of it. He capitulates on every battle before it has begun. The chummy way Obama appears to manipulate that "sentimental" nature, overtly and continuously touching Boehner in a reassuring manner we have never seen in politics before, while Boehner practically shakes in gratitude to Obama, is plainly horrendous. And acts such as Boehner playing golf with Obama, and grinning like a pathetic sycophant at every Obama remark is plainly not just for mainstream show: he loses to Obama on fight after fight, and appears personally determined to do so. It is a sick scene you, ladies and gentleman of the U.S. House of Representatives, have allowed to go on to very considerable damage to this entire country. We're blaming neither Obama nor Boehner after Jan 6. If Boehner is reinstated as Speaker, we're blaming you for all the harm that Obama does.


You only strengthened control of the House and your counterparts only realized control of the Senate because Obama damaged himself politically very badly with the obscene Obamacare rollout. You have to stop "playing it safe" for fear of media reprisals, because it is unrealistic to keep hoping that your opponents will keep damaging themselves. You need to start being aggressive in the real-world sense. You need to fight, and Boehner has proven he has not the slightest understanding of the word outside of his now-utterly-unconvincing rhetoric, heavily outweighed by the gross appearance of Boehner being infatuated by Obama. 


Boehner's office said there would be no reprisals against anyone voting against Boehner. Keeping it real, it is plain that they volunteered that remark so you would know there would be reprisals. The only way for you to get out from under this nightmare combination of petty, weak and imperious Speaker and extremely angry voters out to see you thrown unceremoniously back into public life is to give Boehner a gold watch emblazoned with the words "Good Riddance" and get him the hell out of the way. 


Doubtless you have seen the many petitions to remove Boehner, from places like Freedomworks and at least a dozen other high-profile conservative groups, so you can't say that angry Republican dissatisfaction with Boehner is a surprise.


Word has it that there are over 20 of you at least ready to take on Boehner. The chances are, from our speaking to some of your offices, that there are many, many more than a mere 20.  191 of you stood up to Boehner on the Benghazi Select Committee. Boehner will remember those of you who stood up for the Benghazi Select Committee the moment he is sworn back in as Speaker, so if you don't remove Boehner as Speaker out of respect for your voters, do it for the hope of your future Chairmanships. 



Already the media is setting you up to take a huge hit in 2016 and you can take that from the business inside. They are tempting online readers daily with "will Hillary run or won't she run" to induce into the population a personal emotional stake in Hillary, herself, and it will be successful, and when she announces "Yes", the media cheering will utterly drown out any of you quoting her as saying "What difference does it make?" Simultaneously, they are setting up Romney - the squarest political centrist on planet earth - as the presumptive proven loser to Hillary. 

If you continue to play it safe, you have no chance. This means, again, that you - and we - need a fighter as Speaker, so as to go where others fear to tread and use the facts of the Obama Administration to so damage the Democrat Party that what the then-impeding impeachment of Nixon did to the Republicans will look like a cakewalk by comparison. A new Speaker, if he is a fighter, can do it, too, so badly vulnerable to public scorn is the Obama Administration if someone will show a strong arm and lead with determination the way the Democrats, frankly, have done repeatedly to Republican Presidents. You need to learn how to win and Boehner is plainly not the man to teach by example.


If you want to know for whom to vote as Speaker, look to whom the left media hates the most. And among those candidates look to who is most likely to respond to the media attacks not with compliance, but with withering counter-punches and a greater determination to do what the left media hates. Gingrich was a great example of that kind of personality, whether you liked him or not. You cannot afford to be comfortable anymore, but you don't have to be uncomfortable as long as you put a fighter in as Speaker who wants to do the intense political fighting most of you do not. You need a guy who thrives on it - someone to whom political fighting and winning is not a necessary evil as the current leadership has described it, but someone for whom a political fight for victory is his or her life's blood. That is what your voters have now been demanding for years, and most of you have ignored those demands.


Many have been pushing for Trey Gowdy as Speaker. Despite the fact we think he's great generally, he's a bad choice for Speaker for a couple of reasons. 1. First and foremost, his office told Sean Hannity that he does not want the job, so that's that. People whom we have seen behaving like liberal trolls have been pushing for Gowdy, so we hope all our conservative readers will know to stop pushing for Gowdy, because it's a liberal trick to run out the clock for a hopeless cause and thus ensure that we wind up with Obama-friendly Boehner, again.   2. Gowdy is desperately needed as the Chairman of the Benghazi Select Committee. No one is better suited and cannot be distracted from what is certain to become a pretty intense political situation within a year if Gowdy is sincere. 


Our unequivocal choice for Speaker of the House is "controversial" House Representative Steve King. He really isn't very controversial in the real world, only if you read and believe the mainstream media. In other words, the media is trying to Palinize him because they see him, as they have and do in Palin, a real threat, and they see him as a real threat because he is simply really good at what needs to be done to dismantle the democrat political machine and they absolutely know and fear that fact, and that fear enrages them. 


King knows how to win: Heavily outspent by a $7 million democrat machine in a new district in which no one had previously served, King won by 55% - 45% percent of the vote, handily taking all but a few counties. His voters love him.


King is earning our respect as perhaps the one man who can get the job done: ensure that the democrats are so badly damaged politically in 2016 that it does not matter who the Dems or the GOP run as their respective Presidential candidates, the Republican wins - and so do you.


King is not afraid of the Tea Party. Indeed, he has ingratiated himself to it. Smart man. The Tea Party is a pivotal force and will be around forever. Those of you who hate it are in for unhappy times. But if you elect King as Speaker, he can engage the Tea Party and you won't have to. 


Steve King is basically conservative on every point a person could be a conservative. In case you missed the memo, the Republican party is turning very hard and sharpy to the "far" right in response to the practical tyranny being inflicted by the left and taking the centrists to the right with it. The days of Kay Bailey Hutchinson-types being popular are long past. If she is your role model, get with the program or get a new career.


As far as King's "controversial" remarks on Immigration Policy, we have read and heard everything out there and what we see is the GOP leadership jumping under their desks at the very mention of the possibility that the remarks could be taken out of context - and apologizing in the process. This is absolutely idiocy: King's remarks were directed exclusively about the danger that the current Administration's Immigration Policy is causing due to the way it emboldens and enables drug smugglers and those who kill on their behalf, and King was absolutely right. Don't tell us that this argument cannot be won in the media. We are specialists in the media. You are not. If you want to play media specialists, you are making the same mistake lawyers make when they represent themselves: you are in for a colossal political bruising.


Here are a few Rep Steve King quotes that all the voters who put you in office - and can take the privilege away -  will admire and appreciate:


"The Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is 10 times bigger than the Watergate and Iran-Contra scandals put together."


"I'm tired of seeing the current Republican leadership give in to (President) Obama's every demand. The way they voted to fund amnesty (and Obamacare) was shameful. It's time to stop compromising our principles and start doing the job that voters want and deserve."


"Today I joined my friends in the House and Senate, as well as conservative leaders from across the country, to bring light to the recent admission by the IRS that it unjustly targeted conservative groups leading up to the 2012 election. There is no place for this kind of political targeting in our constitutional Republic. This reeks of the kind of political tyranny that so many people from around the world came to America to escape."

There is another aspect of King that is worth noting, particularly from a media perspective: he is great casting for the part, even if some of you cannot see it. You cannot keep putting forward square jawed, hopelessly antiquated notions of "the Hero Appearance" in the form of absurdly square guys like Boehner and Romney; Leave It To Beaver was cancelled over forty years ago because people stopped watching. 

Rep Steve King has a genuine look and sound while remaining extremely photogenic for the role and in a way that will attract younger voters as a reliable and admirable elder statesman. King The Fighter is spectacularly good casting for the Role of Speaker Of the House fighting the Obama Administration. Even with liberal media attacks, younger voters will warm to his maverick, controversial ways in a heartbeat, and older voters will respect the fact that he doesn't screw around.

He looks good, he sounds good, his ideas are great and he has more passion than a truckload of establishment types. We have poured over all of your pictures, records and videos for months. In our opinion, if you want to make life easier on yourselves for the next two years and ensure easy victories in 2016, get rid of the corny, outdated notions of 1950's heroes, obvious "me too" pandering to show you are minority-friendly and country club establishment weaklings whose eyes glitter like fairy dust every time a camera is turned on to Obama. 

Elect the person for whom casting in this role could not be more perfect: Rep Steve King as Speaker of the House.

No matter how you choose, however, Boehner must not be elected by you as Speaker again, or you'll be dealing politically with Fire Ants and their many allied groups across America every day for the next two years. We have no choice but to make that promise. The time has long passed. Boehner must go. If you cannot see the world with any greater clarity than that, then you must be voted out as well.
