Here's why the anti-Tea-Party "movement" is really just a cleverly-managed-by-Democratic-lawyers scam, with apparent laundering of money from various hard-leftwing sources such as the unions.
"This movement is a fad," proclaims TheTeaPartyIsOver.org, which was established by the American Public Policy Center (APPC), a D.C.-based campaign shop that few people have ever heard of.
But a close look reveals the APPC's place in a complex network of money flowing from the mountainous coffers of the country's biggest labor unions into political slush funds for Democratic activists.
Here's how it works: What appears like a local groundswell is in fact the creation of two men -- Craig Varoga and George Rakis, Democratic Party strategists who have set up a number of so-called 527 groups, the non-profit election organizations that hammer on contentious issues (think Swift Boats, for example).
Varoga and Rakis keep a central mailing address in Washington, pulling in soft money contributions from unions and other well-padded sources to engage in what amounts to a legal laundering system. The money -- tens of millions of dollars -- gets circulated around to different states by the 527s, which pay for TV ads, Internet campaigns and lobbyist salaries, all while keeping the hands of the unions clean -- for the most part.
I find it hilarious that sources of funding are coming from such laughably unbelievable names as "Patriot Majority" and "Americans for Americans". Why not just call themselves "The Peoples' This" and "The Peoples' That", like the Chinese Communist Party does?
More... INCLUDING DAMNING DETAILS (There's much more)
The Tea Parties are for real and represent Mainstream Americana, and are non-partisan. Anyone who asserts otherwise has nothing to back up their assertion and is nothing better than a cranky conspiracy theorist.
The Anti-Tea-Party folks are all Useful Idiots of the Democratic Party.
The National Socialist American "Workers" Unions are hard at work, all right... against the American People.
They're goosestepping around and around and around, lunatically hollering big lies as if they were Josef Goebbels.
No doubt Barack Hussein Obama is just fine with what they're doing. Otherwise he'd demand they stop.
