Generally speaking, I like to think of myself as a reasonable judge of character. Look back on my posts over the last year concerning our alleged President, and you will see that I've never missed the mark by far about him. However, this past 9 months or so, I've been guilty of a glaring misjudgement concerning an up and coming political movement. ACCDF. First, let me say this, 99% of the people that are in ACCDF are true patriots. They are from every walk of life and every nationality. The things that they all have in common is a genuine love for their country and a genuine fear that all that they hold dear is being destroyed by the radical revolutionaries in power.

Here is where my lapse in judgement comes in to play. I disregarded my still soft voice in regards to Pat Dollard himself. I went to his website (I forget now how I was referred there) and listened to his Internet broadcast. He was crude and vulgar and dropped expletives like rain water from a drain spout. I put that aside as I read his self-bio on his site. I figured it was just part of what he picked up while he was embedded with the Marines. Later, I found out that it was always this way with him. By then I had met others from ACCDF and found many of like mind. Also, Pat offered me a position on Patdollard.com (I won't provide active links to his site, sorry) as a salaried contributor.
Well, as a small town blogger, I was amazed, and I admit, flattered at the offer to be part of his website. His site gets thousands of hits a week (due mostly to his unfinished pro-military documentary) and I saw an opportunity to broaden my readership base. Unfortunately for me, and for those that have come here and (may) respect my views, I didn't do my due diligence before agreeing to work with Pat Dollard.
It didn't take long for me to find character flaws in Pat Dollard that I couldn't ignore. Soon after I joined his organization, he dropped off the radar completely for weeks at a time. No communication, no nothing. Then he comes back with a very vague story and picks up like nothing ever happened. This happened again this August. Only this time, not only did he disappear, we (accdf.com and patdollard.com) were both shut down for 3 days, and no one could reach him. Also, he had stopped paying me for my time that I had put in. He had offered to pay me $300. per week to work on the site, and at first all was going well. Then, he payed me $100 early on my second check and only gave promises in lieu of payment for the remainder of that and the two weeks following. That is when I stopped updating or writing for Pat. To this day, he has not paid me the $800 that he owed me before I stopped updating the site.
Recently, there has been a shake up in his ACCDF organization. Some of his leadership sent an email out to other state leaders and to Pat about the inaction of ACCDF and tried to offer ways to make it (ACCDF) work more efficiently. Long story short, it flew like a lead balloon and several of his leaders were put out of the organization. Granted, the toys belong to pat so he can kick you out of his sandbox if you don't play like he wants, but it furthered my belief that something was wrong with Pat's character on the most basic level.
So far, everything I've told you has been anecdotal at best. But just a few minutes ago, I was given a link to a Vanity Fair article that re-enforces my position on Pat and his intentions. He, unlike the rank and file of ACCDF, is not motivated by some overwhelming sense of honor and obligation where our Republic is concerned. Rather, he is obsessed with being back on top and running the show. To be a mover and shaker and to compete with his "best friend" Andrew Breitbart, of Breitbart.com. So far, the only thing that seems to be getting in the way is his own self-destructive personality flaws.
Read this for yourself, it's long, very long, but you'll have a very in depth look at what and who Pat Dollard really is. The title is "Rogue Agent: Pat's War On Hollywood" and I don't think there's a better bio of him or a more revealing look at the personality of a megalomaniacal manic-depressive than this article.
Read it all and then tell me if you think that patdollard.com or accdf.com have any useful future ahead of them.
