Iowa Congressman Publishes Email From AP Reporter Attacking Him Over Tea Party Facebook Group

Published

on

Iowa congressman Rod Blum (Republican from District 1) received an angry email from a reporter for The Associated Press named Ryan J. Foley.

The mainstream reporters are working together to target the Tea Party Facebook Group, which is the largest and most influential tea party community that still exists on Facebook. The community draws its roots in anti-bailout and pro-American nationalist sentiment dating back to 2009. The dedicated readers see the group as a second family: many of them remember the old victories, like Rick Santelli calling for the tea party movement on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. The populist movement led to the 2010 Tea Party victory in the House and Senate, and the blocking of major Obama legislative reforms.

Trending: SAD: Fake News Media Attempts to Re-Brand Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic as the ‘Trumpvirus’

The Koch Brothers subsequently gained visible control of the tea party movement by churning out well-funded nonprofit groups in Washington, D.C. to hire conservative millenials. Before Turning Point USA — an operation of Christian Republican leader and Senate candidate Foster Friess — most of the groups reaching out to young conservatives were Koch groups. Once the student leaders were into the Koch matrix, they quickly turned into pro-open borders “libertarians” backing a third-party Gary Johnson effort to reduce President Donald Trump’s vote share in 2016. They failed.

But the Tea Party Facebook group is still going, it’s still influential, and it still means a lot to conservatives all around the United States. The group is not racist. It is a monument to American patriotism.

But the mainstream media wants to tear down all monuments to American patriotism, so a coordinated effort to target the group is underway — kicked off, of course, by Media Matters, which tells the mainstream corporate liberal media what to “write.”

Then reporters from phony corporate media outlets start harassing other reporters, and politicians, and try to silence people who are living their lives and promoting American patriotism.

So Rod Blum did not take too Kindly to this latest effort to shut down a prominent Tea Party community.

He released the entire hateful email sent by the reporter, who gets paid to try to destroy (and fail) rather than engage and create.

Coronavirus Stock Market Tank is Biggest Since 2008

The plunge was fueled by new reports of the virus spreading globally.

Published

on

The stock market has been sent reeling for a second straight day amidst reports of a growing Coronavirus pandemic, with the loss in stock value being the greatest two-day decline since the financial crash of 2008.

The S&P 500 index declined by more than 3% on Tuesday, closely followed by the Dow and NASDAQ. The decline in stock prices seems primarily fueled by new reports of the Chinese Coronavirus’ global spread. The disease is beginning to enter widespread circulation in countries such as Iran and Italy, the latter of which has been hardest hit by the viral disease in any country outside of Asia.

Trump administration officials are reassuring the public about the containment of the viral disease, hoping to shore up the decline in stock prices by encouraging discounted investment in the market.

Markets plunged immediately when officials of the Center for Disease Control were quoted as saying a genuine spread of the pandemic to the United States was “inevitable.” The governmental agency then went on the walk back the claims.

The coronavirus has directly affected the American economy by putting an effective freeze on imports from China, shutting down trade and exchange of goods in the pandemic’s epicenter. The implications of the disease on the American economy have led some commentators to question the wisdom of closely linking American markets to the authoritarian Communist nation, where the response to the disease has been heavily criticized for a lack of transparency.

As the virus appears to be picking up steam globally, it may seem that health officials are finally getting the better of the epidemic in China. New diagnoses of Coronavirus in China have decreased significantly over the past week.

The human suffering caused by the disease obviously remains the most pressing issue at hand. The economic implications will prove less lasting, and the decline in stock prices may present an opportunity for financial investment.
