Two-thirds of White House’s anti-gun supporters are fake spambots

PRESS RELEASE from the Office of Steve Stockman

WASHINGTON – A study of messages received by Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36) reveals two-thirds of the “grassroots supporters” backing President Barack Obama’s #WeDemandAVote anti-gun campaign are computer-generated spambots.

“Obama’s anti-gun campaign is a fraud.  Obama’s anti-gun activists are trying to defraud Congress using the same scam that sells ‘male enhancement pills.’  Every day thousands of Americans call, write and email the Capitol opposing Obama’s anti-gun schemes.  Obama’s supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress,” said Stockman.

“I call upon the President to denounce this phony spam campaign,” said Stockman. “And to release all internal White House communications regarding his anti-gun political campaign.”

Stockman’s campaign Twitter account received only 16 tweets following Obama’s command to his followers to tweet their congressman demanding a vote on gun control.

All 16 of the messages are identical, beginning with the campaign account’s Twitter name, followed by an identical statement, and ending with Obama’s anti-gun campaign hashtag.  The campaign received no other messages backing the President’s campaign.

A close look at the senders’ accounts reveal only six are actual people.

The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots.

•    They all use the default “egg” avatar.
•    They have account names resembling names automatically suggested by Twitter.
•    They have engaged in no human interaction.
•    They have tweeted almost nothing promotional, sponsored messages pushing real estates websites and other liberal “grassroots” campaigns.
•    They follow mostly MSNBC anchors or media outlets, not actual people.

Reporter Robert Stacy McCain’s investigation of the fraudulent Obama campaign, available at, finds the majority of the Obama-supporting accounts were created in less than 48 hours before contacting members of Congress.

Even more interesting, Stockman staff find two accounts happened to tweet Stockman back-to-back.  Both have only one follower, former Obama digital strategist Brad Schenck.

Schenck somehow found and followed them before they ever tweeted anything, followed anyone or followed any real people.

Of the six real people who contacted Stockman only one can be verified as a constituent.  One lives outside the district and the remaining four do not list where they live.

“If you are a real person who contacted us about your support for the President’s anti-gun campaign, we are listening.  We do not agree with you, but we appreciate your sincere opinions and encourage you to continue to contact us,” said Stockman.  “But the vast majority of the President’s supporters have no feelings because they fake profiles from spammers.”

“The White House has some explaining to do.  My own staff, and others looking into Obama’s Twitter campaign, find the vast majority of messages are coming from fraudulent accounts.  Some of these accounts are linked directly to a former Obama staffer.  To what extent is the White House involved in this attempt to defraud Congress,” said Stockman.

Stockman staff have screen-captured all account information, tweets, followers and accounts followed for the fraudulent spambots.

    @Kelly…your use of the perjorative term for fornicating leaves me cold. I won’t honor this sham of a president. He is a product of lies, spews male bovine excrement on a daily basis and dishonors the office of president of the united states. I am afraid if people like me moved out of the United States, you would not have any money left to whizz away since we’re the people that go to work daily, pay the majority of taxes without whining, do not still live in our parent’s homes nor collect welfare. Post a reply if you can do it without using F bombs or GD bombs. Your opinion would be much more valuable if you did. Right now, you’re calling the kettle black when your posts read as this does. Go back under your rock Kelly.

    • Kelly says:

      My intentionally offensive comment was successful I see. Now, as my fellow American, what can WE do,to find some common ground, work together, and fix the things that are troubling sooo many of us? No matter who we are or even what country one lives in, ultimately human beings will disagree. But, we can also do incredibly stupendous things, amazing things, exibiting the respect, dignity and compassion God gave us the capability to demonstrate. When and if you decide that it something you’d like to do instead of judging that which you may not 100% always agree with, I will continue to be under my rock.

      • NoBama says:

        I’ll give you kudos for not being completely offensive. Patronizing, but not offensive. You ask me what we all can do?

        Here’s a laundry list:

        1. Quit spending our way into financial oblivion. I don’t care who started it. Obama owns it and has brought a double digit deficit forward dressed as someone else’s fault. I’m not a Keynesian nor will I embrace a failed Keynesian economic policy regardless of which party is in power. Dilution of the money supply via “qualitative easing” doesn’t work. Don’t believe me? Look at the late 1920s. We continue to spend on an ever expanding centralized state. There is only a finite amount of persons (regardless of income-dont’ use “the rich”-I don’t subscribe to class warfare nor do I subscribe to class-we live in a classless society until the present administration re-ignited the vestiges of class war). We currently live in a near zero population growth nation. The amount of births do not equal the amount of persons 50-80 years old that must be supported if you support a complex federal health care safety net for the elderly. It’s pure numbers. We don’t have them.

        2. Term limits upon Congress. Get rid of the professional political leeches. We don’t need them. Their purported expertise (if any) has failed time and time again. I am a Jeffersonian so trying to argue a stronger statist position won’t work with me. I know we’ll never see this come to pass. Politics IS a business. Business IS politics. They are both intertwined and whore each other. It is as it is. Get rid of the ass-clowns completely and start over.

        3. Reduce the Federal bureaucracy. I do not espouse the growing of the federal system. I do not need government to tell me where, how, when and why I need them for anything. I do not live in Idaho, do not believe in black helicopters, nor am I a right wing fascist/racist/usual suspect. The Federal bureaucracy is so large that it is utterly incapable of maintenance upon itself. The Constitution is quite clear about the enumerated powers of Congress and by extension, the enumerated powers of a centralized bureaucracy. Our present administration has supplemented the bureaucracy with “Tsars”. That bothers me yet again as most of the research I’ve done on these folks points out that they share the president’s political viewpoints and support his policy. Methinks I’ve seen this before in Russia dressed up as the presidium. It’s rather disturbing and should be dismantled. We don’t need yet another layer of legal rules makers. We have more than enough presently.

        4. Get us out of Afghanistan and Iraq. We have more than accomplished our original missions in both of these countries. I supported both missions and support us moving out of these countries as well. The expense is not anywhere close to what we spend annually upon social programs. It is significant that we are still the world’s policeman. Our federal government has spent us into such debt that we cannot do this function. We need to re-evaluate our position.

        5. Close our borders. Period. End of Story. Don’t give me the liberal whine about our nation being a melting pot and immigrants take the jobs we “white folks” won’t take. Those dogs don’t hunt anymore. Again, we support and actively solicit immigrants via social programs/advertising that immigrants should apply for said benefits. The benefits pot is fueled with our tax money. We’re broke. We live in a deficit spending fantasy world. Again, we have a shrinking amount of tax payers/receivers of social services. Sure you can raise taxes. The current administration has, will and will again. At what point do citizens say nope, I don’t have anything else left to give? I guess in the liberal long term view, that will never happen. That ‘s short sighted and does not take into effect the double bubble of demographics and debt service.

        Ball is in your court. Can you respond without patronizing nor using profanity? If so, we can continue. If not, I won’t.


        • patt reid says:

          Gotta add a few more things.
          1. Quantitative easing has reduced pressure without creating rampant inflation. I hate the Fed, but in this case, someone is pulling the correct strings. NFN, zero population growth would be a fantastic thing, the pain of it we know today will pass, but it’s better for the health of the earth.

          2. The Federal government has shrunk under Obama. That’s a fact. That accounts for much of our persisting unemployment. And, yes, there is a class war and we, the people, are losing. We did not start it but ONLY we can end it.

          3. The left (the real left) never wanted these wars to begin with. We all want out.

          4. Term limits would result in loose canons. Can you imagine an entire congress of TP’ers, or Ron Paul people, or Alan Graysons? (btw, I love Alan Grayson).

          5. Closing our borders would rob us of the brilliant who come from abroad to learn here. Bi-i-i-i-g mistake. You fail to understand that many who overstay their visas are brilliant students who came here on a visa to go our schools, get our educations, and then take it out of the country by force. Only those who are short-sighted use the “jobs Americans don’t want” argument.

          • sogspook says:

            The Fed is not a part of our Government. They are a money printing dispensing private enterprise making assets for themselves.
            The Government has increased under Obama even though he has gutted our Military.
            Term limits with staggered implementation would not result in loose cannons and a Congress full of Statesmen (TP’s) rather than politicians would be a good thing.
            I don’t think you get the concept of closing and securing our borders. It does not mean locking legal alien workers out, just the illegals. Anyone staying past their departure date is a criminal. We don’t need any more.
            Class warfare is a major accomplishment of the current administration, second only to destroying small business.

        • Kelly says:

          Of course I can & I think you will be amazed at how much of your list I agree with. In response to #1: I agree almost completely with you. The only place I would differ is the Kenya issue, otherwise we are in agreement. Point #2: we are in 100% complete agreement. Point #3: again
          we agree, in fact I also feel that govt. should also stay as far away as possible from people’s bedrooms & esp. women’s uterus’. Not because I’m some crazy left wing tree hugging hippie that thinks abortion isn’t murder, at any stage, but if someone chooses to take someone’s life, then they have to deal with the outcomes of their personal descisions. Point #4: I emphatically, unequivocally agree. Point #5: this is were we will differ some but not significantly. I do believe we need to be a nation of immigrants, however, we do need to close our borders & focus on legal immigration. As far as taxes go, I think the wealthy should pay more, but so should all of us. The only things of my own that I will add are these:I’m very torn on gun one should lose their 2nd amendment rights. But the article 1 of the 14th also states that we have a right to life. I haven’t been able to reconcile these within myself yet. It’s a work in progress. Marijuana: alcohol has destroyed millions of lives, it’s legal. I think these should be reversed. The sheer amount of $ generated could help our country attempt to cure the cancer it’s suffering from. I also believe we need to stop being the worlds policeman, bring our people, technologies & our $ home. Was that acceptable?

        • The_dadster says:

          I would add – reduce or close a number of bureaucracies at the state and local levels. Our population has grown approximately 70% since 1960. During the same period of time, state federal and local bureaucracies combined increased their number of workers by 400%. Most are nothing more than workfare, anyway so dump them.

    • patt reid says:

      Really, “nobama”, you are the only ones working? If those *like* you left, we’d wouldn’t have enough money to support our needful people.? All the rest of us are lazy bums who suck at the teat of the federal cow? You sound like Mittens R-money, which I guess should not surprise me. Check out which states take out more federal tax than they put in. Yup, red states for the most part (not all). People *like* me pay in more than we get back, I’m in that liberal N.E. belt. Not only do we pay in more into the Fed government, we pay wa-a-a-y more at the state level. So get off your condescending high horse. I’m one of your hateful liberals and I have currently 3 corporations (small) that I run, I just closed one other one, slowing down, getting tired. I have been an employer for decades. And I have worked forever, continuing to work until today when I am 69. I am no stranger to the 10-18 hour day. My liberal parents before me were hard workers (farmer and teacher, small business owners) and my off-spring are ambitious as well.

      Obama has added significantly less to the deficit than Bush did. Keep in mind, we are paying interest on the structured debt, which includes the $5T+ that he added. Obama has no control over that, and were it not for the Fed controlling interest rates, it would be a lot worse. And, we’re still fight the Bush wars, we still are suffering under the Bush tax cuts, and we still have unfunded Medicare D.

      We are on target to come in under $1T for this years budget. That’s a reduction. Obama has already cut the very things that the GOP wanted cut. But they don’t play well with others. They want more and will give nothing. A puny tax increase for the top 1/2% (or less) will not cut it, when placed against the sacrifices for the bottom 47%, who are short of jobs and/or under employed. Obama has not added people to the unemployment, food stamp and medicaid programs, the sick economy did. And why is the economy so sick? Austerity. Look at what’s going on in Europe. All the gung-ho GOP’ers dis the Prez for wanting to be “like” Europe, when in fact they are the ones who are emulating the EU and their failing economy.

      In fact, what we need is MORE spending. That’s the entire problem with the economy right now. It’s not like a home budget. That’s a bogus comparison. The wealthy have become the “hoarders” instead of the “job creators”. All cuts have been lobbed at the unemployed, the poor and the senior populations. Those are the “spenders” who now cannot spend because they are in poverty with very little safety net. Until the spenders have some dough in their pockets, there will be no spending, thus no recovery.

      So, “Why would the GOP deliberately undermine the economy?”, you may ask. It’s for the same reason they have been obstructing everything the Prez has tried to do. They want him to fail, they cannot bear to have him accomplish anything. That is their #1 priority, and they’ve been very outspoken about that goal. They want the economy to fail so that no Dem, especially a black Dem, will ever be elected again. Then they will come in and enact the exact things Obama has been trying to get so they can be the heroes. Keep in mind, Obamacare is EXACTLY what Mittens put into place in MA. In fact, many of the programs Obama has continued or enacted were GOP programs first, including the drones, the continued wars, Homeland Security abuses, all originally GOP programs. Even the immigration plan he’s resenting was first offered up by the R’s. [So, now I have just told you what I don’t like about Obama]

      See, not one curse from these lips (fingers), and my condescending to you is not worse than the condescension you exhibited. I’m not an Obamabot, I have my own issues with him, but *your* issues are on the wrong track.

    • crake says:

      If government is such a good idea, why is it always such a problem…

      The concept of government is responsible for greater than 200,000,000 deaths.

      FBI crime statistics reflect a 50 year low for violent crimes and larceny, yet America has the largest prison population in the world. 50 years ago, 1/125 children had a parent incarcerated; that number is 1/25 today!

      Now Americans will be penalized for not buying a service! WTF!!!

      The government must STOP declaring war on this, war on that; NO MORE WARS!

  2. Krankenheim says:

    Are you kidding me? I’m not a regular reader of this page so what do I know about how things go down on it but c’mon….REALLY? This is ridiculous. Running a spambot to send out a message is no different than the way your bills are sent out each month. What, you thought someone physically stuffed those envelopes? Where the heck do you think junk mail comes from? And look at the comments on this page. It’s no wonder a smooth operator like Obama was elected – the people are sheep! You need to bring a better anti-Obama argument to the table than this because now you’re just drawing at straws.

    • ROBERT says:

      Monthly bills are one thing but our rights are another. Shut it with your liberal rationale!! We the people are not sheep, people. We the people are standing up and taking notice and it is our right! We are not sheep for we are informed people. You sir, are the one who is a sheep not me and not WE THE PEOPLE!!

      • Krankenheim says:

        Your rights? Your rights are trampled on because someone used electronic media to spread a message? What the hell is it that you really think you’re “standing up and taking notice” to, Captain Obvious? There are a lot bigger issues than this. The issue here is “spambotting” not gun control. That is what this article is about; get your head out of your ass and brush up on your reading comprehension.

    • Kelly says:

      Interesting.and…who the fuck cares anymore. Last time I checked NO WHO IS GOD DAMN MOTHER FUCKING PERFECT!!!!! Don’t like president Obama?Fine. Don’t like president Bush?fine. Don’t like president Clinton?fine. Don’t like president H.W. Bush? FINE!!!!! But all this constant fucking screaming about American Values and the love and need to defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights and not one, not one can even honor, HONOR the office of president by addressing the current or previous presidents as such. So all you damn children, conservative or liberal, grow the fuck up, start treating your fellow Americans with respect or get the fuck out if you can’t stand this place so much…

  3. Marty says:

    During the campaign something similiar was done. It showed that close to 70% of Obama supporters were fake.

  4. Kathy says:

    Anyone with half a mind should believe it because he is phony himself! It goes back to his phony birth certificate!!!

  5. It is very shameful that they have to resort to this to get there way or his way.

  6. Steve Harper says:

    I thought Stockman was going great guns after OVOMIT ans was going to start impeachment proceedings–got his jets cooled didnt he??

  7. Connie Carmichael says:

    Gun owners must know that Barack Obama has zeroed in on expanding federal background checks, new mental health mandates and so-called “gun trafficking” legislation as the core of his gun control agenda. The National Association for Gun Rights is OPPOSED to any new federal government restrictions on your gun rights. Unfortunately, not all gun rights organizations are. SHARE with your friends.
    Sources: NRA won’t oppose background check deal

  8. patt reid says:

    Guess none of you have ever read the polling results on this subject. You ‘think’ there are more of you??? I suppose that’s why Obama won a second term, and why 80% of the country polls as in favor of more regulation, including 70+% of the NRA membership. Those stats don’t come from the WH, and not from twitter. Take your paranoia and go home.

  9. Sean says:

    Twitter does not influence votes. Money does. This Senator’s study and conclusions are not only a waste of tax payer money but explicitly irrelevant. I thought people were getting tired of wasteful spending? This information isn’t new – it’s happened before on both sides of the political spectrum. It’s commonplace within political videos and propaganda online. Time and money could be spent more appropriately here and it’s a shame that I’ve read so many people in favor of this.

    • Rick L. says:

      Sean, I agree with you. His time could be better spent elsewhere. My thought is he is just trying to justify his job to us by getting his face and name out there. He is as big a phony as the rest of our so called elected officials.

    • rvs says:

      FWIW your ignorance of the situation is obvious, beginning with the fact this is not a Senator. Investigations also are not “studies”.. this is a criminal investigation matter. Last I checked, we do still investigate crimes. and I have heard no one on either side, suggesting we should stop doing so because of wasteful spending.

  10. Dan Hochstetler says:

    All this fake stuff out of the Administration is supported by the fake President. When will we get rid of him?

  11. jeff says:

    get anonymous on this issue and have them defeat the spambots that they are using…

  12. chapprg1 says:

    Are these 16 fake tweets where dianne gets her statistic that the majority of ‘Americans’ support gun control?

  13. Richard Slack says:


    • Connie Carmichael says:

      Richard, this is so his “followers” will think everyone is doing it and support his evil causes…..he can’t seem to get REAL Americans on his side.

  14. Despiser says:

    Don;t worry though, these EXACT SAME PEOPLE would never ever consider using these same tactics to commit voter fraud on a gargantuan scale to help their Progressive causes, NEVER… You must be a racist for *thinking* it…

  15. Connie Carmichael says:

    I believe a lot of what “he” wants us to believe is fake. Was just reading a column about him telling a foreign head that the US Constitution is dead. He is in for a RUDE AWAKENING I do believe.

  16. Seems to me that the CIC and duly sworn POTUS has, in re to said swearing and oath taking have sworn to include the 2nd Amendment in the logic zone of his rememberer. To make it simpler, he swore on his ‘okay to lie if you are a muslim lying for a good cause’ oath to support whatever he truly does not believe in but will swear that he does anyway. What a loophole for another kind of hole!

  17. doug bloom says:

    I think there is more of us than there is of them.

  18. t_l says:

    Funny that he wants information from the White house about the anti-gun campaign. What he needs to do is subpoena any records from the Organizing For America group that is now a 501c4 PAC. There’s where you’ll find the money and paper trails i’m sure.

  19. Lehmon Baxley says:

    Fake twitter followers may fall right in line with their plan to bus supporters to the gun rally in NY a couple of weeks ago. The reason they never showed up for the confrontation could well be that the supporters they were counting on showing up, could well be the fake ones they themselves established. Even Organizing For Action cannot tell where their truths end and their lies begin. That is usually the delima compulsive lairs face.

  20. Rob says:

    This party will bus large numbers of voters around to polls that do not require voter ID…why do fake TWEETS surprise anyone?

  21. Thomas Reedy says:

    This, like anything else, Doesn’t surprise me. All the Treachery to undermine our Constitution and Bill of Rights. They would Love Nothing More than to Strip us of everything that remotely resembles being able to Protect ourselves from Harm in any shape or form…

  22. Sam says:

    Fakery,, Seems to follow this regime, this info needs to be seen by all

  23. Dean Garrison says:

    I want to leave a comment for those who may not believe Stockman. There is a twitter application that calculates fake followers. You can run your own numbers against Obama’s account. I just ran my numbers and my followers are 87% good (deandg) Obama’s are 21% good (barackobama). Here is that link: You have to have a twitter account to use it because they run your own numbers first. Then you can compare them to others. Some followers will be inactive, it happens. But when I compared my own account to Obama’s…I had 2% fake followers and he had 53% fake followers. I can not fault anyone for having inactive followers but fake followers are another matter.I think a certain percentage is normal but not 53%. See for yourself.

  24. FredAURick Alyone AshAUR says:

    Well Dean, can you glimpse -at least- what all you have gotten the attentions of….??
