The US TEA PARTY was a project of CSE (Koch Citizens for a Sound Koch Economy) now since rebranded as FREEDOMWORKS-CSE and AFP (Koch Americans for Koch Prosperity).
The US TEA PARTY website can still be visited in the ARCHIVES.ORG wayback macine from 2002-2005, with mirror image pages on CSE.ORG.
In 2002 Americans were Enjoying GEORGE WRECKER BUSH as president for his first term and had already "taken their country back. The nation had never heard of Barack Obama yet.
In August 2001 the TAR HEELS TEA PARTY attacked the North Carolina State Capitol Bldg with 600 frothy-mouthed screamers throwing tea bags around and complaining about taxed too much already. This protest was sponsored by Dick Armey's dick army of CSE, and also ART POPE'S JOHN LOCKE INSTITUTE co-housed in the same offices as Charles Koch's Institute of Humane Studies at George Mason University.
The TEA PARTY project was created over decades of anti-cigarette tax front organizations funded by the Tobacco Organized Crime Racketeers, as evidenced by the TOBACCO DOCUMENTS housed at SF State U Legacy Library documents collections from the many tobacco trials documents.
