Big Brother is Watching!
This week while going through the stat counter for our website my co-host for the radio show, Jason Hoyt, noticed that one of the IP addresses was from the “executive office of the President USA” which struck him as kind of weird. What was even more strange was that the refering link was from Google. Someone at the White House had done a Google search for “phil russo”, “worl”, and “tea party patriots”. We find this all very funny of course but it does raise some questions. How does anyone at the White House know my name? Why were they searching for me? Are they doing this to other leaders in the Tea Party movement?
My guess is that they are doing research on any and all of the leadership in this movement. As for why, one can only guess. With the new powers that the government has thanks to George W. Bush and the Patriot Act Obama’s people may very well be tapping my phone without a warrent and going through my library records and seeing what websites I go to ect. This is a good thing. This means that we have them worried about what we are up to. The scary thing will be if they start coming after us and locking us up.
I am very proud to have made the “watch list” of right wing extremists and I hope that Obama and his staff start to listen to the radio show, they may learn something. If you want to check out more about this story you can go to the #TCOT Report story and view the screenshot from our stat counter and see the IP address that was used to hunt me down. http://tcotreport.com/russo.html
