Understanding Fox “News” Regarding Anyone Opposed to War Funding: It's War Propaganda

Understanding Fox “News” Bias Against Ron Paul, Liberals and Anyone Else that Is Against the Wars:  It’s War Propaganda

By Jeanette Borges

Many of the directors of the largest corporations, conglomerates and lobbying organizations such as defense contractors, banks, oil companies, health care industries, agriculture industries and organizations like the Friends of Israel Initiative cross sit on boards of media major media outlets. Why? It is only logical that they are using the media outlets to further their respective agendas. That in itself means these outlets are not credible sources for news of any kind.
In these United States of America we do not have a working Fourth Estate or “free press”. Something is very wrong with the “news”.  It’s not that you can prove it. It’s that you feel it. That just isn’t good enough. We need facts. I started with NewsCorp the parent company of Fox News.
Fox News reports news to further anti-Muslim sentiment, war with Iran and war with the whole of Middle East now that I think about it. It is propaganda for continued present and future military action. Fox and other media outlets are staunch defenders of Israel and pro billions and billions of aid to that country that is in turn used to purchase weaponry from our military industrial complex. Fox is pro deregulation of everything and blames the trillions in debt and the deficits on Medicare and Social Security instead of war funding. It advocates war funding at the expense of everything else, specifically Medicare and Social Security. Fox News and all other media outlets are on a marketing campaign to convince a large percentage of voters that America is in trouble, not because it wastes 20% of the annual budget on wars of aggression and Homeland Security porn-scanners, but because of the poor and retirees. (1) Is it news? No. It’s propaganda. It’s a full blown marketing campaign. Just look at their board of directors:
José María Alfredo Aznar López, (2) the ex Prime Minister of Spain, sits on the Board of Directors of NewsCorp. (3) Pucker up Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Hannity and the rest because Aznar Lopez initiated  The Friends of Israel Initiative (4) (FOII)  which was co-founded by nine other international figures that include Republican Party former United States Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton. Now you can understand John Bolton when he is on Fox News. “The declared purpose of the initiative is to "seek to counter the attempts to delegitimize the State of Israel and its right to live in peace within safe and defensible borders". It also campaigns against Iran, in particular in relation to its potential development of nuclear armaments”. It uses the slogan "Stand for Israel, Stand for the West". Now go Google “Glenn Beck, stand for Israel”. Many say Glenn Beck is crazy. He is not. He is just answering to a board of directors that decide whether he has a job there. He is just kissing corporate ass like everyone else employed there does and he is the most blatant vocal pro Israel occupation, war propagandist, in all the media, anywhere. (15) He is a poster child for the Hague. 
But it gets better. Who else co-founded The Friends of Israel Initiative and sits on their board? George Weigel, (5) Senior Fellow Ethics and Public Policy Center  a Washington, D.C. based conservative advocacy group "dedicated to applying the Judeo-Christian moral tradition to critical issues of public policy."
George Weigel, states that “in some cases, moral reasoning may require that the United States support authoritarian regimes to fend off the greater evils of moral decay and threats to the security of the United States”. Does that strike you as a Christian value and what if you value freedom and government of, by and for the people?  Now you know why you hear so much about religion and God and Christ in the same breath with eternal war, on Fox
Another founder of The Friends of Israel Initiative, Robert Agostinelli, (6) who also founded the Rhone Group (7)  a private equity firm with global reach headquartered in Rockefeller Center with ties to the entire banking system, including Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan
“Agostinelli is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and a major supporter of Zionist and neoconservative causes”. Incidentally, Robert J. Stevens, the  Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Lockheed Martin, one of the biggest corporate parasites in the military industrial complex, is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.  “In 2008 Agostinelli provided substantial funding to the Presidential Campaigns of John McCain and Rudy Giuliani. Agostinelli supports The American Jewish Committee Magazine”.
If José María Alfredo Aznar López,  (8)sits on the Board of Directors of NewsCorp then he is going to influence what we consume for news for the benefit of the founders of the Friends of Israel who sit on private equity boards and who have interests of their own. Supporting Israel is not the issue. There is nothing wrong with that. But supporting Israel and linking that support to bombing Iran is another game entirely. Why does one have to be tied to the other? Because its war propoganda. Whoever supports going to war for whatever reason is serving the military industrial complex and they will always find reasons. Israel is the current reason. Before it was WMD in Iraq.
It takes hours and hours of research to connect these dots. I could continue to search and search and I would find more conflicts of interest, but I have found enough to make the point.
Allot has been said about Fox being a Republican or conservative media outlet. Not true. It is a Military Industrial Finance Corporate-Media War Propaganda outlet, like the other four major media outlets.
Fox doesn’t even hide the fact that they exist to deceive and misinform the citizenry. Just look up the meaning of “fox”. (9)
If you think that Fox is the only media outlet with a conflict of interest that compromises their credibility as a “news” organization think again. Just take a look at the Board of Directors of Boeing,  (10) one of the biggest military defense contractors and their relationship with Walt Disney ( the largest media conglomerate in the world in terms of revenue that owns ABC  (11) and General Electric, a military defense contractor that just happens to own its own media outlet. (NBC (12)).
We have trillion dollars in debt and what is the main focus on all media outlets? Cutting Medicare and Social Security and other spending. Do you hear anything about funding 4 wars and eternal war? The push to cut Medicare and steal from Social Security is happening in order to continue the wars for profit.
In closing, we have trillion dollar debts due to oligarch corporate media and their war propaganda. We owe the trillions in debt to “open-ended wars for the profit of the oligarchs that control the media and to an unregulated financial system concentrated in a few hands that produces financial crises by leveraging debt to irresponsible levels. A government that runs a deficit too large to finance 4 wars by borrowing will be tempted to reduce its debt by reneging on entitlements or by confiscating private assets such as pension funds. When it has confiscated private assets and reneged on public obligations, nothing is left but the printing press.
The government of the United States does not represent the American people.  It represents the oligarchs.  The way campaign finance and elections are structured, the American people cannot take back their government by voting. A once proud and free people have been reduced to serfdom”[i]. (13)
Without an overthrow of the government, or terrorist threat to our freedom, or foreign invasion and without one shot fired the United States government is no longer a democracy. It has been take from within. We are now an oligarchy and that could not have happened with a working Fourth Estate or free press. It could only happen with controlled, filtered and censored propaganda by the Military Industrial Finance Corporate-Media Infotainment complex.
War propaganda to wage wars of aggression is a crime, (14) not to mention pillaging the American people to pay for those wars to the extent that you want to pick apart Medicare and steal from Social Security. If the American people wake up, stop with the political party division and unite, one sweet day we and the world will have our justice. Without a Fourth Estate or courageous journalists, the only option we have as a people, I fear, is revolt and it shouldn’t be in Washington, It should be at the headquarters of the oligarchs. In front of NBC and Fox and the New York Times and Goldman Sachs and so on and so on.
If you want to understand what passes for news in these United States just follow the money. It leads to the oligarchs that profit from eternal wars. Most importantly, a deceived, misinformed citizenry doesn’t even know that they have lost a government of, for and by the people. It is the job of the Foxes and others, that form the Military Industrial Finance Corporate-Media War Propaganda complex that they don’t know, but it is your job that they do.


 What do you think? Journalists and pundits on all media outlets are calling for cuts in Medicare or Social Security and say nothing of the cost of funding eternal wars. Are they profiteers or patriots?   Vote in poll # 1.

REFERENCES1) Congress has also stolen 2.8 trillion for its wars and bailouts for mega-rich bankers and the right wing has selected entitlements as the sacrificial lamb to avoid repaying the $2.8 trillion.

13)Paul Craig Roberts served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan 
administration. Roberts repeated charges that Gaza is "the world largest concentration camp" populated by people who were "driven out of Palestine so that Israel could steal their land." He called the U.S. State Department a "puppet" of the Israelis and the U.S. itself a "puppet state" of the Israelis. He concludes the article by claiming that "there’s no money for California, or for Americans’ health care, or for the several million Americans who have lost their homes and are homeless, because Israel needs it. Roberts opposed the Iraq War and writes frequently on the subject. On May 18, 2005, in response to the publication of the "Downing Street memo," Roberts wrote an article calling for Bush's impeachment for lying to Congress about the case for war. Roberts was also a critic of a potential Bush administration attack on Iran
Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land: Media: the Israel-Palestine Conflict provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, zeroing in on how US war propaganda has reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the brutal occupation. It exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites--oil, and a need to have a secure military base in the region, among others--work in combination with Israeli public relations strategies that exports illegal war propaganda and exercises a powerful influence over how news from the region is reported. .

Below is a letter written to Representative Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committe on Government and Reform  regarding newly elected Tea Party candidates that just gave away billions in defense pork. It is self explanatory. Please read it and then mobilize write, call and make some noise. These people have made fools of us. It is heartbreaking.


May 13, 2011

Representative Darrell Issa
Chairman Committee on Oversight and Government Reform
2347 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative Issa:

As you and the rest of the members of Congress, well know, the House Armed Services Committee, headed by Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon (R-Calif.), decides on the more than $600 billion annual defense budget, which is about one third of the discretionary federal budget and up to $1.2 TRILLION for the entire national security budget (depending on how one crunches the numbers).
This week that committee debated that budget, but not before Rep. McKeon. organized a fundraiser on February 15, 2011 to solicit campaign contributions from lobbyists and companies such as Lockheed Martin Corp., the Boeing Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp. through defense contractor political action committees , for Republican Reps. Vicky Hartzler (MO), Scott Palazzo (MS), Austin Scott (GA), Jon Runyan (NJ), Mo Brooks (AL), Chris Gibson (NY), Tim Griffin (AR), Joe Heck (NV), Scott Rigell (VA), Martha Roby (AL), Bobby Schilling (IL), Allen West (FL) and Todd Young (IN). All are newly elected and all attended this fundraiser before deciding what to do with billions and billions of our taxpayer money.
The newly elected (13) Tea Party candidates who came in with talk of cutting spending and being anti-establishment, quickly warmed to the ways of Washington. An analysis of the voting patterns on those 13 votes found that not only were  the Freshmen not the ones leading the charge to cut defense, but have also added funds to programs that the Pentagon did not even seek (unnecessary defense pork)..
Mr. Issa, it is well known that Congress has legalized bribery calling it campaign contributions and corruption is hard to prove, but this is blatant. These people are not up for re-election any time soon.  So why? Why  ask for money days before deciding what to do with billions and billions of our taxpayer money? You know why. They were soliciting bribes. Rep. McKeon introduced them to how it’s done. Just like a monkey in suit is still a monkey, campaign contributions when Congress legalized bribery, is still a bribe. Mr.Issa this is blatant and in your face corruption and we ask that you tie those bribes to their votes for unnecessary defense pork.
In the judiciary we have an ethics rule that states  “avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety”. Even the appearance of impropriety casts a shadow over the judiciary as an institution. Rep. McKeon and the “for sale 13” have cast a shadow on the whole of our political system and on you too, as head of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. You know well that this fundraiser was just a “for sale” sign to take from we the people and give to the highest bidders. McKeon  has been a major beneficiary of defense contractor campaign contributions since first becoming the Committee’s ranking member and later its chairman as seen on[1]. The “fundraiser” proved to be lucrative for the “13 for sale” corrupt freshmen as seen in the quarterly filings with the Federal Election Commission. The filings also show how McKeon is using money – raised through defense contractor contributions – to curry favor within the Republican membership of his committee.[2]
A corrupt Congress is the reason for our trillion dollar debt. We have Bush tax cuts while waging 4 wars due to corruption. We have a monopoly on prescription drugs and subsidies for price gouging prices for drugs due to corruption. We now have subsidies for health care insurance monopolies with no competition and no anti trust laws due to corruption. The cost of health care is so high because of corruption. Policies have doubled in price since the health care reform passed due to corruption. Tuition in colleges have soared because of subsidies due to corruption. We have sky rocketing gas prices that are fixed by Wall Street when Congress could stop that in its tracks due to corruption. We have bank bailouts due to corruption. We have subsidies to every corporation imaginable due to corruption. We have foreign aid that is used to buy arms from our military industrial complex due to corruption.
But worse then all of that are the eternal wars for the profits of the industrial military oligarchs due to corruption. The wars and that whole being strong on defense propaganda? Well that is just justification for the corruption even if it means trillions in debt that we have to pay and the added crime of bringing home our kids broken and in body bags from foreign lands. What kind of slime sells out an entire people just to rub shoulders with rich, corporate parasites, like some badge of honor? We have elected peacocks and ass kissing, subservient, cowards that have betrayed us all.
Trillions of dollars are being pillaged from the American people to take from us and give to the highest bidder due to corruption. Congress is incapable of managing our money because of corruption. We have trillions in debt because politicians give our money to their campaign contributors. The “for sale 13” are proof that even with trillion dollars in debt corrupt whores in Congress won’t stop.  God help us, when will we get rid of all of these corrupt politicians, Democrats and Republicans alike? When will we ever have a government of, by and for the people again?
In the name of the millions of people that watch powerless as all of this pillaging and corruption unfolds and trillions are stolen from us to give to them, while puppet media remains silent, I ask that you investigate and get these people out of Congress, knowing full well that pigs will fly before anyone, anywhere does anything to make that happen. Regardless, whores cannot be stewards of our money.
Please investigate them. In the meanwhile we will copy the media who collude with this pillaging and are inextricably linked to corporate profits, Wall Street and the war profiteers. There has to be some law somewhere that protects we the people from being raped by the whores in Congress so we might as well contact the FBI or Eric Holder even though Congress has probably covered that too. It is no wonder some in Congress oppose any transparency when it comes to campaign contributions and defense contractors. You know Congress may have created laws to cover up their crimes and they may escape criminal justice, but they won’t escape ours forever. This cannot last too much longer, because people are boiling.
Congress must take the money out of elections. The government of the United States does not represent the American people. Congress does not represent the people. It represents the oligarchs. The way campaign finance and elections are structured, the American people cannot take back their government by voting. A once proud and free people have been reduced to serfdom. I hope you are on the right side of this. If you aren’t you are not alone. It takes an army of corrupt slime to turn a democracy into an oligarchy without one shot fired and its our own fault.
Most sincerely,

The American People: Divided, Conquered and AWOL

Disclaimer: I do not care about copyright laws. You can copy and put this wherever you want. Pass it on.

The American People: Divided, Conquered and AWOL

By Jeanette Borges

On a Sunday, May 1, 2011 the Commander in Chief, the first Black President of the United States of America, President Barack Hussein Obama, announced to the entire nation and the world that Osama Bin Laden was dead.
Before that day the issue of debt and deficits and the “Tea Party” was front and center in the news and so there are allot of people talking and posting on the Internet. Before I can get into this article I want to show you some examples:
The Birth Certificate and Donald Trump are Fakes “Is it real?  I don’t know yet, but even if it is real, something is fishy about all of this.  Why wait until now to release it?  What did he have to hide?  Even if this alleged birth certificate is real and even if Obama really was born in Hawaii, that doesn’t necessarily mean that he meets the Constitutional requirement of a natural born citizen”.  
That person and those like them simply don’t want Obama in the Whitehouse, because if he was born in Hawaii it certainly meets the requirements of a natural born citizen especially since his mother was American, but that is not the point. The point is that people like that are destroying the power of the Tea Party and are ruining it for the rest. The media and hence, most of the population links the birther movement to the Tea Party. The Tea Party started before Obama and had nothing to do with this. It is a deliberate distortion that has practically destroyed the power that the Tea Party once had. Go to any Tea Party rally that used to attract thousands and if you can get 300 people to attend you are lucky. The issue of the debt and the deficit that used to come from the Tea Party becomes lost and carries less credibility when this birther issue is injected into the “Tea Party”. No one knows what the Tea Party stands for anymore. The messaging we had before Obama was elected is destroyed.
Not content with the birth certificate that the President was asked to present and the damage this has done to the Tea Party movement there is more of the same all over the Internet. From the home page of WorldNetDaily Exclusive! “Birth certificate conflicts with father's real birthday? Newly released immigration documents indicate Obama Sr. was 2 years older”, “Obama's dad forced out of Harvard Administrators 'couldn't figure out how many wives he had” , “Obama's McCain resolution demands 'American' parents President's 'birth certificate' confirms dad Kenyan citizen”, “Obama's half-sister raises birth-certificate doubts Claims despite 'adoption' by Indonesian stepfather, it is U.S. 'law' that matters” , “9th Circuit will hear eligibility arguments But attorneys say dispute involves much more than birth certificate”,”A tale of two birth certificates 'Rosetta Stone' documents provide comparison”,  “Aligning birth certificate statements, evidence Descriptions of document have varied by witness”, “Graphics pros challenge Obama birth certificate Layers of images found in released computer document raise doubts” ,”Expert says birth certificate is authentic Adobe Illustrator teacher: 'You should not be so suspicious about this'”, “Is name of Obama's birth hospital somehow phony? Rumors swirl about entry in latest certificate issued by White House”, “Birth certificates – an art, not a science Proof positive Obama is as American as Norman Rockwell” “Hocus POTUS Do you believe Obama to be constitutionally eligible for the presidency?”.
At the same time while this issue is eating at the messaging and hence the power of the Tea Party, there are these examples regarding abortion and Planned Parenthood:
Sixty-three percent of tea party supporters back a Republican plan to defund Planned Parenthood”,Conservative GOP leaders aligned with the tea party are demanding a complete defunding of Planned Parenthood”, About the 2011 budget Michelle Bachman said  “Instead, we've been asked to settle for $39 billion in cuts, even as we continue to fund Planned Parenthood and the implementation of ObamaCare.' And there is this: “Republicans are claiming it as a victory - all except the Tea Party, who are slamming Mr Boehner for giving way to Mr Obama over issues like healthcare and abortion”.
This particular post reflects what the “tea partiers” have morphed into: Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011Don't let the title of this bill fool you.  It has all kinds of other junk in it including the continuation of federal funding for Obamacare, funding for Planned Parenthood, and lots of other unconstitutional stuff for the rest of the year”.
Absent from that post and most posts about budgets and deficits is the fact that these budgets continue to fund the 4 wars Congress is paying for with our money. Absent from the whole trillion dollars in debt debates from politicians are the wars. We have trillion dollar debts and deficits and Planned Parenthood unconstitutional stuff is what the “Tea Party” was concerned with?  Everyone knows Planned Parenthood, that by the way, does not fund abortion by law, became the main issue over the budget debate. A freaking clock was ticking over a government shutdown over this! This is how serious the Republicans were taking the “Tea Party” that they continue to fund the wars and give tax breaks to the war profiteers and threw a bone called Planned Parenthood to the Tea Party? Do you know how ridiculous this made the “Tea Party” look?
The issues of the religious right are not the issues of the Tea Party and never were, but this is what the media says and hence it is what the American people believe now. Do you know the damage that did to the whole issue of trillion dollars in debt? The Tea Party just got clobbered with the 2011 budget! What about that debt ceiling? The Tea Party is going to get kicked in the teeth with the whole “balanced budget” amendment because Congress continues to fund the wars! 
I watch news for at least 8 hours daily to know what our politicians are doing in Washington. Then I hit the Internet to fact check it. I research constantly. Then I decided to start sharing what I found about misinformation and spin by what can only be described as oligarch corporate media.  When Congress enacted laws and spending that was reported with spin, omission and an obvious agenda, I flagged it and shared it.
Much of the news now is about the deficits, the trillions in debt and is linked in some way shape or form to the Tea Party. (Whatever the  “Tea Party” means these days).
What I see and read from oligarch corporate media is absolutely despicable. They are shaping the news about the debt and spending and the Tea Party that is tantamount to propaganda, censorship and controlled messaging.
When politicians take positions and design laws, that  is news. Instead, it’s the other way around. I can almost predict what arguments and positions the American people will be hearing from politicians after watching pundits on cable news and the Sunday talk shows. When they have a message it is mimicked in Congress. It is mind boggling. Congress or the President are not making policy. Oligarch corporate media is making policy and that policy includes making the American people pay for the waging of eternal wars of aggression for profit. Do you know that it’s a crime to do that here and around the world? It’s a whole other issue and a library could be written on the subject. There were Nuremberg trials for that crime! (Google Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda Ministry)
The oligarch news about the debt is tailored to transform and gain public opinion to continue to pay for wars of aggression. (Click here for an example and notice the similarities between what we are told now and what was used then.) It is tantamount to brainwashing. It is working. The sites and posts I read on the Internet confirm that the American people have been divided and conquered regarding their fight to get government to represent the people with regard to spending and the trillion dollars debts.
Get ready for more brainwashing. One would think that if Bin Laden was killed the United States should declare victory and bring our troops home. That is the last thing we have been hearing from oligarch media and the politicians that mimic their message. Have you heard? Killing Bin Laden means we will be attacked again. The stage is being set for another terrorist attack and probably years and years of more wars. Instead of oligarch media calling for the end to the war in Afghanistan, they are calling for the American people to double down on paying for even more war.
The American people are very aware of the financial mess we the people are in. We should be aware; we are the one’s paying for the fiscal recklessness and corruption of our government. Oligarch CORPORATE media, everyone in Congress and the President are all talking about the trillions of dollars in debt. They are all talking about deficit spending and living within our means. They all say we have to get “spending under control” now that the masses, especially the Tea Party, Democrats and Independents, have shown their disgust with the whole mess.
Yes, they are all talking about it, but what exactly are they saying? What is missing from their lip service on the budgets from both parties for 2012 is that they continue to fund the wars and give tax cuts to the war profiteers on the backs of the American people. Neither budget does a damn thing to stop spending because they all fund the wars. Not content with the taxes Congress is pillaging from us to give to the oligarchs they serve, they have stolen money from Social Security too! Did you know that?
You know what else is missing? Haven’t you noticed? In your heart don’t you know it already? Our problem is not a Democrat/liberal problem, conservative/ Republican or Tea Party problem. Our problem is a corruption problem in a country with elected leaders, on their knees giving blow jobs to an oligarchy, a ruling class. The United State has become the Land of Kings; the land of corporate Kings who buy, yes buy Congress. We vote the whores into office and once they get there they serve the highest bidder, the pimp that pays the most. 
The government of the United States does not represent the American people. Congress does not represent the people. It represents the oligarchs. The way campaign finance and elections are structured, the American people cannot take back their government by voting. A once proud and free people have been reduced to serfdom.
You should, we should, all do our part to unite with one message instead of being divided by politicians and oligarch media especially after Bin Laden is finally dead. That is also missing in the messaging and posts all over the Internet.
I am hoping that going forward these people will take this into account as they continue the fight to stop Congress to stop pillaging the American people. Their work is important and they are not AWOL as are so many, but the message should be one of unity against a common enemy of all the American people regardless of party. That enemy is corruption and funding of oligarch agendas that take from us to give to give to them.
The birther movement, shariah law, abortion issues amongst others have isolated the Tea Party from Independents, Democrats and Republicans: masses of the American people that once joined with them in their efforts to stop funding the wars.
I don’t think this was by accident. The leadership of the “Tea Party” organizations that are taking money from big oligarch interests and oligarch media have divided and conquered the Tea Party and what was once a threat is no longer. The budget presented by Paul Ryan is proof positive of that. That budget continues to fund the wars on the back of Medicare, education and other programs that are services for the people. Is getting the debt and deficit under control mean that taxpayers should not get programs that serve them because taxpayers should pay for things like eternal wars that do not serve them? Since when did cutting the debt and deficit become a plan that means taxpayers don’t get their money to pay for services for them, some of which they paid into all their life?
The message was to defund these wars when the Tea Party started. Let’s join with Independents and Democrats with a common message.  Let’s not get divided and conquered. Let’s not abandon the battlefield to take back our government from oligarchs who are pillaging us all. Let’s not go AWOL and for the love of God let’s not fall prey to the war propaganda to continue paying for eternal oligarch wars

Open Letter to All Tea Party Organizations April 10, 2011 Re: Messaging (The message from Tea Party leaders has changed and instead of fighting corporate control of Congress they depend on it. They have injected abortion, shariah law and the birther issue into their message. The results? The Tea Party got clobbered over the 2011 budget and it is poised for the same for the 2012 budget. They got clobbered because the Tea Party no longer represents anti-war funding. If you consider yourself or use to consider yourself part of the "Tea Party" this letter was written to the "Tea Party" organizations asking them what the hell do they think they are doing. Their leadership has abandoned the very reason the movement started. I invite you to copy, paste and then address it and sign it and send it to them. Post it on their websites and pass it on) The Tea Party is being abandoned in record numbers. They are no longer relevant because of their leadership. Get their leadership back on track or they will lose their following. They already are because they no longer carry the message to stop funding the wars.

Open Letter to "Tea Partiers" April 16, 2011 Re: What do you Stand For (Do you know of someone that says they are a "Tea Partier" because they hate Obama, question where he was born, is anti-abortion and thinks that cutting crap instead of cutting funding to the wars is what the Tea Party is all about? Then copy and paste this letter. Tweak the address and sign it and send it to them. Post it on Tea Party sites and forums wherever you see those truly distracting issues being debated. Tell them they are hurting the movement because people are leaving it. Tell them they are getting clobbered over the budget because of them. Make some noise.  If you can't you should read AWOL.
