E-Advocacy Strategies Not to Use

by Jason Z.

So you know: think twice before targeting your email lobbying campaign at the federal judge who's hearing your case.

Facing a new ruling from U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman, after a federal appeals court instructed him to reconsider an earlier $37.6 million contempt sanction, infomercial pitchman Kevin Trudeau apparently thought the judge might take note of praise from his fans for his books.

And Gettleman clearly did. Finding his court e-mail and BlackBerry flooded with thousands of messages sent in response to a blog post yesterday by the syndicated radio talk show host, the judge addressed what he described as e-mail harassment by threatening to have marshals come and get Trudeau if he didn't appear at an emergency hearing today, reports the Associated Press.

Comrades!

It has come to the attention of the Commissariat of Political Statism (ComPoSt) that some rascals and reactionary elements remain insufficiently suppressed, and a palpable danger to our decrepit regime.

ComPoSt informers have determined that Narodniks are plotting anti-progressive uprisings that may number in the dozens. Furthermore, these subversives may be planning to destroy chai ration cards in defiance of the ulamah.

Appropriations for DemocracyInAction from George Soros (laundered as per usual) have enabled us to infiltrate saboteurs among this parasitical element, but organizers are on their guard against our false flag operations.

Beware of violence!

Putschists are openly arming and boast of having "literally ... shoved out of the way" those "that have attempted to control the freedom movement."

CCR Closes the E-Advocacy Loop With Holiday Video

Two weeks ago, the DIAtribe picked the brain of Owen Henkel at the Center for Constitutional Rights on the hit Send Bush a Copy of the Constitution action they've been running. So, after everyone clicks-here-to-take-action, what happens? Did they actually deliver all the Constitutions? Well ... sort of. Here's a wink-nod wrap to the action with a little virality of its own:
