The Oakhurst/Coarsegold Tea Party kicked off it’s 2015 meeting schedule Jan. 8, at the Best Western Yosemite Gateway Restaurant with guest speaker Charles C. Johnson, who many call ‘The most dangerous man on the Internet.’ Johnson is an independent investigative journalist who says he started computer programing at the age of seven and has grown up in the age of the Internet.
His work has been featured on Real Clear Politics, the Drudge Report, Hotair.com, The Blaze, Breitbart.com, The Rush Limbaugh Show, and the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web. He has been on Fox News with Megan Kelly, Sean Hannity, and Lou Dobbs and numerous other radio programs.
He discussed a number of recent high profile stories he has exposed as frauds such as the NAACP bombing in Colorado, the debunking of Virginia Roberts - the woman who falsely accused Alan Dershowitz of raping her - who Charles exposed as having a past criminal record. He has also exposed Neil deGrasse Tyson as lying about being mentored by astronomer Carl Sagan. He also said he exposed the Sony Hack as not originating from North Korea, but instead as an insider cyber attack.
Having been brought up in a very liberal home, where his father always derided President Calvin Coolidge, Johnson told his audience that he did his own research on Calvin Coolidge and found out that he was one of the best presidents in support for free markets, lower taxes and less government - a president that Ronald Reagan regarded in high esteem. This prompted him to write his first book titled “Why Coolidge Matters: Leadership Lessons from America’s Most Underrated President” (Encounter Books). He has also written a short booklet on “The Truth About the IRS Scandals” (Encounter Books).
In his research he uses an army of young “nerds” who are experts at researching information using the internet, Twitter and other digital technology to obtain information on candidates running for office, or already in office, and other public figures for his news stories.
He also talked about the massive changes happening in the news media and how this is disrupting established news outlets such as the New York Times, the LA Times, and other large newspapers.
Johnson said what is about to be exposed on Hillary Clinton will be a game changer in her bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential race.
Johnson and his wife relocated to the Central Valley about a year ago from the Los Angeles area, and they live in Clovis. He says he loves the Central Valley and has already visited Yosemite National Park three times.
