TPE and One Nation PAC Battling


Dartha Vadera

If the “Force” of Star Wars fame was real then analogy could be used for Deborah Johns. As Anakin Skywalker went over to the “Dark Side” and became Darth Vader, so it seems Deborah Johns – Blue Star Mom – has also embraced the Dark Side. Perhaps to make a mental connection between Vader and Johns we could call her Dartha Johns.

 

The Tea Party Express has emailed another exposé of Deborah Johns and partner in Left-like smear campaign Kelly Eustis of their Political Action Committee called One Nation PAC. A quick perusal of One Nation PAC’s website evidences a Conservative Agenda; however the Tea Party Express has some serious allegation toward Johns and Eustis:

 

Mr. Eustis and Ms. Johns even went so far as attempting to break into our office – which we were alerted to by building security, resulting in our filing a police report against them. They stole a part of the Tea Party Express email list upon their departure, but we have retained legal counsel to take action in this regard to get it back.

(SlantRight.com post 10/6/10)

They also tried to gain access to the company we use for broadcasting our emails, when their own email provider shut them down for SPAM (as a result of them stealing their list) but as soon as our own email provider saw that they were doing they shut down their account and warned them never to even consider coming back.

 

Even though the One Nation PAC looks like a Conservative website one must question an agenda in which two prominent members are accused of PAC espionage and theft.

 

Below is the most recent Tea Party Express email I have received.

Gov. Sarah Palin Attacked by Same Group Attacking Tea Party Express

Hello patriots – many of you have written to us telling us about the harassing emails you received from the bogus One Nation PAC front group operated by Kelly Eustis and Deborah Johns (who is on a crusade to defeat the great conservative Republican veteran running for Congress in North Carolina).  We want you to know you’re in good company – Gov. Sarah Palin has come under attack from these folks as well.

 

We’re including a sample of some of the attacking emails you’ve forwarded to us below.  But for now, in response to your questions on what actions you can take.  First, Unsubscribe from their bogus “The Conservative Update” and “One Nation PAC” email lists – CLICK HERE TO UNSUBSCRIBE.

 

You should also report their emails sent to you as SPAM.  You can also report their attack SPAM to the government: spam@uce.gov

 

Over the past several months Kelly Eustis and Deborah Johns have emerged as the leading smear agents used by the liberal media to hurt conservatives and the tea party movement.  When Huffington Post, TPM Muckracker, Salon.com, New York Times, CNN and others need someone to attack the tea party movement or conservatives they know they can turn to Kelly and Deborah to smear our side.  It’s happened time-and-again and is happening this week with the attacks on Illario Pantano.

 

The top recipients of funds recently distributed by One Nation PAC (the front group that Eustis and Johns lead) is none other than themselves – they are paying themselves to attack conservatives and the tea party movement.  Here is the report from OpenSecrets.org  – note Eusatrix is Kelly Eustis’ company being used to send out the emails attacking the tea party movement and the Tea Party Express.  We believe he is their only employee, which would mean he’s paying himself to attack conservatives.

 

Again, you’ll note the money they took from conservatives was funneled right back to themselves so that they could then attack tea party supporters and conservatives such as the Tea Party Express, Illario Pantano, Gov. Sarah Palin and others:

 

Top Vendors/Recipients

 

Yesterday Mr. Eustis and Ms. Johns put out a completely dishonest press release that claimed among other things some connection between Gov. Sarah Palin and Ms. Johns and One Nation PAC.  This is a complete fabrication – in fact One Nation PAC’s principles have worked to smear and undermine Gov. Palin.

 

If you want to know the real, and ugly, relationship One Nation PAC has really had with Gov. Palin, then look no further than the “Tweets” Kelly Eustis made attacking Gov. Sarah Palin on his very own Twitter page – here’s just a sampling, there is an entire stream of attacks on Palin by One Nation PAC’s Eustis:

 

Anti-Palin on One Nation PAC Twitter

 

And on and on it goes.  Pro-Troop leader Melanie Morgan came under attack from Mr. Eustis and Ms. Johns as did patriotic singer Diana Nagy.  It just goes on and on.

 

Some of you tried to confront Mr. Eustis and Ms. Johns about their disgusting conduct and behavior to attack the tea party and conservative movement, but the responses back have been nasty.  This is why we recommend instead to Unsubscribe from their lists and report the emails they send as SPAM.  Again, to report their emails as SPAM to the U.S. government, send an email to: spam@uce.gov

 

We are so sorry some of you have had to endure the vicious attacks from Mr. Eustis and Ms. Johns.  We are going to provide a sampling below – to warn those of you who don’t wish to receive such vitriol to unsubscribe from their lists, do not engage them in conversation or stand out – as you could be on the receiving end of their next attacks.  In this email, Kelly Eustis attacks our supporter incredulously turning truth on its head and accusing the tea party of activist of being the one who is a SPAMmer.  Warning – Mr. Eustis uses a great deal of obscenities in the email:

 

Eustis to TPE Supporter

 

In this next email Eustis makes the absurd claim that he practically started the Tea Party Express – totally untrue.  He then claims you all are “mindless followers” – which is weird since he just got done suggesting he started the group you all follow.  The blatant contradictions in one email are rather hilarious:

 

One Nation PAC Contradiction

 

In the email below Mr. Eustis claims they have given more money to conservative and tea party candidates.  That’s interesting, because the Tea Party Express has spent millions upon millions of dollars supporting tea party conservatives across this nation.

 

As we showed you, One Nation PAC in contrast has directed more money to their principles (Deborah Johns and Kelly Eustis) to fund their efforts attacking conservatives than they’ve given to anyone else.  What’s also interesting is the response they are making to each person who writes in – attempting to badger them.  Note this email to another tea party supporter once again starts off with, “I cannot believe you are sending me this email”:

 

One Nation PAC Email

 

If you have any other questions or comments about this matter please feel free to contact our Tea Party Express Director of Field Operations, Tiffiny Ruegner, who can speak quite clearly to all the issues involved in this effort to destroy the Tea Party Express and conservative candidates like Illario Pantano and conservative leaders like Gov. Sarah Palin.  You can email Tiffiny at:  tiff.tpx@gmail.com

Former TPE Member Johns Displeases Organization


I know of Deborah Johns as a Blue Star Mom who was battling Leftist defeatists about funding The Surge in Iraq (a successful outcome incidentally).  I remember getting email alerts from her representing Move America Forward.

I am a Tea Party Movement supporter however I rarely follow the inter-Tea Party political infighting. Because of this I had no idea that Blue Star Mom Deborah Johns was also an Our Country Deserves Better PAC and Tea Party Express big dog. I recently received Tea Party Express updates defending their position on a GOP candidate for Office in North Carolina Democratic Party incumbent.

Evidently Johns supported Iraq theatre veteran Will Breazeale in the GOP primary over the eventual GOP winner Ilario Pantano. Johns’ gripe with Pantano is he was accused of murdering Iraqis while in the Service. Pantano was not necessarily cleared of the accusation but the powers that be in the military must not have believed there to be sufficient evidence to conclude a military trial to a successful conclusion. Military justice has taken hits over the last few years because Marines (Save one still persecuted Marine Sgt. Frank Wuterich) and SEALs were exonerated for war crimes accusations. Exonerations I might add that brought joy to Conservatives including yours truly.

Johns has read the transcript of Pentane’s actions and has concluded that he is a criminal bringing a bad name to military Patriots of the past and the present.

I know this post sounds like its leaning to an agreement with Johns; however really I don’t have enough info to agree with Johns or the Tea Party Express. I’ll let you read the Tea Party Express emails I received and you can check independently if Ilario Pantano is worthy to represent a new Conservative emerging Republican Party.

TEA PARTY EXPRESS RESPONDS TO ATTACKS!

 

Sent by: Tea Party Express

Sent: 10/5/2010 9:50 PM

Today many of you received an email from a bogus group called “The Conservative Update” attacking the Tea Party Express.  The email is actually from two former employees of the Tea Party Express who were fired for cause.  Their names are Deborah Johns and Kelly Eustis.  We fired both of them when we discovered how bad they were, and then we all got to see this week how reckless they were when they launched an effort to defeat the conservative Republican for Congress in North Carolina, Illario Patano – who is also a veteran of the United States Marines, and instead support his Democrat opponent.

 

When we stuck up for Pantano we became the target of attack by these shameless people who have been operating under a number of front groups.  And that’s why they sent out the email you got today.  You can read one press account to gain a better understanding – HERE.

We have learned that Ms. Johns was similarly fired from Combat Veterans for Congress shortly after her termination by the Tea Party Express.

Mr. Eustis and Ms. Johns even went so far as attempting to break into our office – which we were alerted to by building security, resulting in our filing a police report against them.  They stole a part of the Tea Party Express email list upon their departure, but we have retained legal counsel to take action in this regard to get it back.

They also tried to gain access to the company we use for broadcasting our emails, when their own email provider shut them down for SPAM (as a result of them stealing their list) but as soon as our own email provider saw that they were doing they shut down their account and warned them never to even consider coming back.

So now these two individuals sought out a new email server, and set up this bogus “The Conservative Update” group along with a group called “One Nation PAC.”

Here’s what you need to do to take action:

1st) You should unsubscribe from any emails you receive from “One Nation PAC” by finding the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of any emails they sent you but do so only after you report the email as “SPAM” to their current provider ChimpMail.

2nd) You can similarly unsubscribe from any emails you receive from The Conservative Update, or any other new front groups these individuals set up, by again scrolling to the bottom of the email and finding the “Unsubscribe” link.

3rd) We need to stand up for Illario Pantano against the despicable attacks by these people.  You can make a donation to Pantano’s campaign – HERE.

You can also email his campaign and let them know that we stand behind them and that we will refute any efforts by Ms. Johns or Mr. Eustis to smear and defame his good name and his campaign.  Send emails supportive of Illario Pantano to:  heidi@pantanoforcongress.com

Finally, to all of you who wrote in alerting us to this attempt to smear and destroy the Tea Party Express we want to say THANK YOU!  Just as we’re working through lawyers and law enforcement to respond, we are also working with other leaders of the tea party movement to take action against Mr. Eustis and Ms. Johns to ensure that no more conservatives are harmed by their efforts.

We never quite realized when we first launched the Tea Party Express how many people would try and stop our efforts to take our country back.  We knew the liberals would oppose us, but we have been really disappointed to see how some in the political establishment, and how some subversive elements like Mr. Eustis and Ms. Johns, would behave and how hard they would work to stop our efforts.

When we saw Ilario Pantano’s campaign attacked yesterday we knew we had to step forward and take action to defend him.  And in doing so, we once again put ourselves in the spotlight and in the line-of-fire.

But that’s OK, we’re determined to persevere regardless of what is thrown against us, because our cause is right and just, and we will prevail in the end as long as we all stand united and fight for the principles we believe in!

If you have any other questions or comments about this matter please feel free to email our Director of Field Operations, Tiffiny Ruegner, who can speak quite clearly to all the issues involved in this effort to destroy the Tea Party Express and conservative candidates like Illario Pantano.  You can email Tiffiny at:  tiff.tpx@gmail.com

Important work to Help Sharron Angle in Nevada

 

Sent by: Tea Party Express

Sent: 10/6/2010 12:23 AM

Thanks again for all your supportive notes regarding the attacks against the Tea Party Express by a new front group trying to destroy the Tea Party Express.  Many of you asked for a simple direct link to unsubscribe from their emails (via One Nation PAC and The Conservative Update).  Here is that link – CLICK HERE.

Sadly this was not the only under-handed attempt by sleazy political operatives to hurt the tea party movement.  As you may have heard, Sharron Angle recently met a slimeball named Scott Ashjian, the head of another bogus group – Tea Party Party in Nevada – asking him to drop out, as he would siphon votes away from her and allow Harry Reid to win the election.

The Tea Party Party in Nevada enjoys no tea party support.  It’s a total scam that Harry Reid and his allies apparently cooked up to split the vote (remind you of what we’re facing in Alaska with Lisa Murkowski) and help Harry win.

Well, Scott Ashjian secretly tape-recorded his meeting with Sharron Angle, ran to the news media and smeared her, smeared the Tea Party Express.  Again, he is doing Harry Reid’s bidding.  It’s been awful to watch on the news this week – that man is such a dishonorable thug, and we here at the Tea Party Express figured this out early on.  We even put out this ad exposing Scott Ashjian – WATCH IT HERE.

And guess what?  Scott Ashjian was back on TV doing interviews this week where he called the Tea Party Express… get ready for it… RACIST.

Yes, the favorite smear by liberals of the tea party movement repeated once more.

We’ve been upping our expenditures in Nevada for the past few weeks and we’re going to do even more. 

So please, support our push for Sharron Angle – we’re going to stop the Lisa Murkowski’s, the Harry Reid’s, the Scott Ashjians, the One Nation PACs, and every other dirty, slimy group or individual that tries to undermine our fight!

You can support our campaign for Sharron Angle by making a contribution online – HERE.

We’re hoping 500 people can contribute $100 or more within the next 24 hours.

As always, if you prefer you can mail in a contribution via U.S. mail to our headquarters:
