On July 30th, we held our first ever Benghazi Tweetfest with the goal of getting it to trend on Twitter. The response was overwhelming.
Within one hour, Benghazi was trending at #3, and eventually went up to #1. Even Michelle Malkin chimed in once she saw it trending. The Tweetfests are ongoing. Click HERE for information on how to get involved.
BENGHAZI TWEETFESTS A MAJOR SUCCESS TRENDING BENGHAZI WEEKLY TO KEEP IT IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Over the last week of July, several of us got together with the idea that we could trend Benghazi on Twitter in order to keep it in the public eye, and also urge Twitter users to Tweet Republican members of the House who don't yet support HRes36, the select committee for Benghazi. The Tweetfests turned out to be a major success. Hundreds, if not thousands of Twitters users joined in and sent thousands of Tweets about Benghazi. The results so far? We've trended Benghazi nationally every week since the start of the campaign, and it only seems to be getting better.
IS TWITTER BLOCKING ISSUES LIKE BENGHAZI FROM TRENDING? WAYS TO GET AROUND THE ALGORITHM
For the past three weeks, several of us have been involved in a campaign to trend Benghazi on Twitter. The point is to keep the issue in the public eye, and to pressure GOP members of the House to form a Select Committee to investigate the killings of four Americans, and why help was not sent.
The first few weeks, we were extremely successful in getting Benghazi to trend nationwide on Twitter. Then it started becoming more difficult, even though the number of Tweets being posted about Benghazi were the same, or more than the prior week's posts when the topic trended. I looked into the possiblity that Twitter was keeping the #Benghazi hashtag off of the trend list. Read the article.
LIST OF TWITTER ACCOUNTS OF GOP REPS NOT SUPPORTING THE BENGHAZI SELECT COMMITTEE
In an effort to get more GOP House members to support H.Res.36, the Select Committee for the Benghazi scandal, activists who are involved in keeping this story in the news are urging a "shame campaign."
What this entails is contacting GOP House members on their Twitter and Facebook accounts. These are social networking sites that are fully visible to the public. We want GOP representatives in the House to be ashamed for not supporting a full investigation into the unnecessary deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and two former Navy SEALs who fought to the death trying to fend off the terrorist attackers. Currently, 160 GOP House members out of 234 have pledged support for the committee. We need more of them to pledge support to overcome the objections of House leader Boehner. Read the article.
INTERVIEW WITH DIRECTOR OF BENGHAZI 9-11, THE MOVIE
This week I had the pleasure of interviewing the co-director of the upcoming movie, Benghazi 9.11, Buzz Jacobs. Buzz previously served as the Director of Immigration Security Policy on the White House staff under President George W. Bush and as an FBI analyst, and also served as the Southeast Regional Campaign manager for John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. He currently co-owns SSC (Strategic Storytelling Company), a national media production and communications firm. The SSC team has helped Disney, Universal Studios, ESPN, President George W.

IN 2ND DEBATE, OBAMA CONFIRMS HE KNEW OF BENGHAZI ATTACKS IN TIME TO SAVE NAVY SEALS
I put this short video together where in the second presidential debate, Obama said he knew of the Benghazi attacks in time to save former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
BENGHAZI PETITION: WHEN DID OBAMA KNOW?
I put a petition up on the White House petition site asking that the administration reveal the exact time that Obama knew of the attacks in Benghazi. In order for the petition to be visible on the White House site, it needs 150 signatures. As of Monday, January 14th, it had 94 signatures. We only need 61 more until it is live on the site. After that, if the petition gets 25,000 signatures in one month, the White House will respond to the petition. Help us get justice for Stevens, Woods, Doherty, and Smith by signing the petition. You can sign it on the White House petition site HERE.
PROTESTS AT MEXICAN CONSULATES FOR MARINE HELD IN MEXICAN PRISON!
12-20-12 Update: Because of the overwhelming response, I’ve purchased www.FreeJonHammar.org. The site will be live soon, and all info regarding the protests will be listed there. Thank you to all who are helping to free Jon Hammar.
Marine Veteran Jon Hammar, has been held captive in one of Mexico’s most infamous prisons for four months. Jon went on a surfing trip to Mexico and was arrested for carrying an antique rifle that had belonged to his great-grandfather. U.S. border agents told Jon that he could take the gun into Mexico after he filled out the proper paperwork. When John crossed the border and gave Mexican officials the paperwork, he was arrested because the gun was 1 inch too short according to Mexican law. He has been subjected to death threats by Cartel members, and an attempt to extort money from the family has been made. To read the full story go to DailyMail - Marine Jon Hammar Imprisoned in Mexico.
January 7th Protest After posting for a protest at the Mexican Consulate in Sacramento on my Facebook page, the President of Conservative Republicans of CA., Ron Givens (a former Marine) volunteered to help set up the event. Over 50 people signed up on the first day. We are now attempting to make this protest go nationwide. The goal is to pressure the Mexican government into releasing Jon Hammar as the U.S. government has done little to nothing to help.

UPDATED: RETAKE THE SENATE TO REPEAL OBAMACARE
In order to repeal Obamacare, we need a Republican majority in the Senate. The Senate currently has 53 Democrats, and 47 Republicans. Republicans must hold all of their Senate seats, PLUS pick up four more. According to Real Clear Politics, there are currently nine toss up seats for U.S. Senate. Two are currently held by Republicans. Below are the nine toss up Senate seats with links to contribute, volunteer, and to each candidate’s Twitter accounts. Please consider contributing so that we can retake the Senate and Repeal Obamacare. If Mitt Romney wins the presidency, he Cannot repeal Obamacare without a Republican controlled Senate. It is Imperative that we gain at Least four U.S. Senate seats.
Can the 2012 election for president be rigged? Several weeks ago Pat Dollard emailed me and asked me to look into that possibility. Shortly thereafter, Pat's research team and I started doing our homework. What we uncovered might shock some. I know it did me.
In 2006, the "Secretary of State Project" aka "SOS," was formed as a 527 political action committee. The goal of the committee was to help elect socialist Secretaries of State in swing states so as to affect the outcome of close races such as the 2000 presidential election. In the 2000 election, Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris said she would reject revised totals from the recount between President George W. Bush and Democratic nominee Al Gore that weren't turned in by the mandatory deadline. The issue went all the way to the Supreme Court and was decided in Bush's favor. Socialists didn't want election laws to be upheld, thus, they began maneuvering to elect those who would circumvent it.
