We have never done this, but The Tea Party Fire Ants is now asking directly for your help, and not money, but a little time and activism from the confort of your own home. We need your help to close the sale
with congress on Benghazi and defunding/eliminating Obamacare. No, we don't need your money (we never take any and never will - not even advertising revenue - this effort needs to be 100%"clean" and with no special interests involved). We need you because we can attain victories now against Obama's agenda in the conclusive
sense, but we need you.
Recapping this groups' efforts, and most importantly successes and recognition, to prove our worthiness of your small time and modest amount of energy for which we are asking, we've been at it for about year in Twitter, and at it online for 5 years, long before the Tea Party Fire Ants name was born (25-year Green Beret Vet Sgt Major: "We're like fire ants". Me: "Eureka! The group's official name should be 'The Tea Party Fire Ants'! Anyone disagree?" Everyone loved it. And here we are. #TPFA on Twitter).
You probably know NYC media has been my business for over 25 years (I'm a very closeted conservative in the belly of the beast. It isn't easy, but it has it's activist advantages to know what the "enemy" is thinking and doing very intimately). You know that marketing is the specialty of twitter swarm leader Kathy Amidon. You know that Sgt Major brings his Green Beret experience and perspective to the TPFA op. And you know we, in the very larger collective, have had solid successes under our banner I believe no grassroots group in the last year can remotely match. You can decide on that last part. If anyone has, please correct me so I can correct this blog entry:
For almost 1 year of unbroken consecutive nights, Christmas and New years included, the core of our group has Tweeted media and congress on mostly Benghazi, but has diversified a fair amount to include the shutdown, activism generally and to eliminate ObamaCare, because IMO Obama's media armor is as thin as rice paper, now. A concerted GOP effort brings it all down politically. Tweeting as a group on open threads for public pressure was a strategy brainstormed and initiated in practice by this group.
100's of you retweet our swarm posts every night and we thank you. You brought this particular art original to us to 2,600 Retweets (approximately 10 million people) as of this writing (the first group to demand Obama free the Benghazi survivor witnesses to testify, posted on Twitter, Jan 13, 2013).
We've produced 100's of original works for the Benghazi/conservative cause (prompting lib trolls to christen me, this group's founder, as "#clipartdude". I guess I'm supposed to feel diminished by their "devastating" sarcasm. Sorry. I'm just a little pissed off at dealing with idiots, that's all. Smart people know the difference. Honestly, does that sound to you like fellow conservatives who merely have a problem with your activist approach, or does that sound like lib operators trying to make a successful group unpopular by mockery?)
We initiated and exclusively did many dozens of Benghazi days counts. We don't believe tweeting hashtags into outer space twice a week, while America has no idea of the issue, is good enough for an organized activist group. We don't think that you think so, either:
Dozens of pieces if Editorial art
Most importantly, you probably know of some of this group's accomplishments by now. Real accomplishments, not just the kind of appeal to popularity lib trolls pretending to be conservatives use to fake out people looking for a group to which to belong:
When Fox News, IMO, began to clearly betray the conservatives who made that network hugely success in the most nauseating and manipulative audience betrayal in television history, we made America's voice known in the only successful boycott of that network, ultimately bringing their ratings down 33%. And yes, thanks to a mocking media whose unctuousness backfired, they know who did it.
At this point we would like to ask poisonous critics who have been relentlessly attacking Kathy and myself on twitter - @clarencesilkwow, @BossHoggUSMC, @SirTatters, @Lillisbeesmom, @HarrietBaldwin etc, to post their group accomplishments, to, you know, remind them that activists are not on this earth to be those for whom the trolls were put here to judge. They need to prove they can get something done once in a while just to distinguish the difference between do-er and, IMO, the merely obnoxious voice designed to distract and make true conservative accomplishment less efficient.
#TPFA / this blog has made significant inroads successfully into keeping issues alive and denied the left media the victory of making them go away, not just to the choir online, but to the rest of society :
We've done some pretty gutsy stuff, too, like when #TPFA swarm leader Kathy Amidon had the patriotic chutzpah to call Boehner's office and legally record the guy on the other end admitting Boehner was refusing to allow HRes36 for a Benghazi select committee a vote because he knew it would pass!
Admittedly, on occasion we have not been successful, but no-one get's 100% success 100% of the time. Truckers to Shut Down America refused to take our free information, guidance and advice as most of you know, and as you know the event was basically a media catastrophe insomuch as, as with most conservative "big events", it went nowhere because the media put a lock-down on any story that advances the Conservative cause. We wanted the trucker event to look like this, told them how and researched and found the resources for them to do it incredibly inexpensively. They refused. But we tried. Maybe the next time:
We keep an eye on the important facts necessary for conservative political media success and broadcast them in ways you probably know that no other group does.
We've had our right-wing celebrity acknowledgements from the right as well as major major media who attacked us;
We've also held events (Exhausted yet? I am)
We have also provided art for other groups' events, unconditional and free of charge:
We've helped fellow conservatives learn how to identify liberal trolls, and protect themselves from being "Gulaged" (account suspended) on Twitter:
And we have waded obliquely in the past into some pretty controversial material which we feel is entirely legit to investigate further based on the evidence, because ignoring important evidence is what our side often does best - and hurts the conservative cause the worst, because, like cancer, the damage is done silently and undetected:
BUT NOW WE NEED YOUR ACTIVIST HELP
Besides the basic need for more people to influence congress to ensure that by January Obamacare is given its last rites and to see a floor vote on HRes36 for a proper Watergate-style Benghazi select committee, people, common called "trolls" who are, in my opinion, troublemakers and opportunists have hurt the TPFA brand, scaring people away from activism. Some of those trolls were past "members" of TPFA whose involvement was pretty slight to say the least. Some have never been involved at all except to act is grand critics that none of the above is good enough for those whose own accomplishments amount to zero.
You have probably seen this relentless guy, whose name we are supposed to believe really is Clarence Silkwood (who is apparently a woman who goes by the additional handle of "SirTatters, whose real name Kathy knows from past association)), who seems to have made it a cause to attack us 24/7. He/she even spent the night Ted Cruz filibustered attacking us while everyone else was tweeting support for Cruz:
In this case he is pushing a guy named Donnie who set up a blog to, IMO, whine about what we feel is nothing more or less than a veiled excuse for cyber-squatting our group domain name, around April 3 or 4th, just after the media gave huge coverage to the Tea party Fire Ant name. Here is our abbreviated rebuttal to his, IMO, whining rant.
And they have partially succeeded. The trolls have hurt us, no question. Most people see them, know their type and retweet our demands that they tweet some example of their own accomplishment. But the net result is that TPFA activists have been reduced to a handful because the trolls' weird, obsessive ways and sometimes downright alarming ways succeed in frightening people off, as is their way-too-obvious goal (Update: this trend is now reversing itself as people have seen the relentless aspects of the trolling, have seen the harmlessness of it except as a distraction, and have begun to get on-board again while occasionally shouting down the trolls).
The conclusion of all this is that America needs you and we really need you and your help right now through the final month or two to see Obamacare ended and the Benghazi investigation truly properly begun. We can do it. I'm right a lot, frankly - my business for 25 years has been to be right. For example, I was right in predicting that the polls would turn against Obama and the dems last week after people got a good sense of Obamacare when no one else, media or conservative pundit alike, mentioned it. I am now absolutely convinced that we are in the end game of stopping Obamacare and seeing Benghazi break open. But I'm also right that we need more people to accomplish it and am fearful that Obama's agenda will be realized fully if more people do not join this effort to see victory through.
Update, Please see 12/10/2013 post on the Tea Party Barter Deal.
We need people to tweet congress with TPFA (follow @Kathy_Amidon's wall on twitter any/every night at 7:00 PM EST) and shout down the trolls attacking #TPFA and we need more of you than them. Right now ACORN pays its people and we can't match their monetary inducement.
Saving America is not like a football game where a handful of people play it out and everyone else watches. This is a game where every person in the bleachers now needs to get on the field. We need you activist help very badly to succeed in a way that will prove to be truly historic if unreported by the mainstream media. We need you.
