The most recent (2012) IRS Form 990s for Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution US show legal expenses totaling $34,625. The 990s for previous years do not show any significant legal expenses.
This is from the JTMP 990—
This is from Schedule O of the VRUS 990-EZ—This is interesting. VRUS had some legal work done for it in 2011. For example, Kevin Zeese filed a bar complaint against Justice Clarence Thomas on the organization’s behalf. He must have done it pro bono because no legal expenses are reported for that year. The two entities were sued in 2012, but the were represented by Jeffrey Cohen, the Executive Director. These are expenses not paid to employees.
I have been aware of the transaction receipt shown below since 1 February, 2014.
The receipt will likely be entered into evidence in a coming court proceeding. Because I may be called as a witness, I have been asked by the counsel for one of the parties not to discuss publicly the facts I am aware of relating to the receipt until after that court proceeding.
I support Israel in its existential battles with enemies dedicated to its destruction. Israel is the only country in the region that is recognizable as a democratic state. It is at war with totalitarian thugs. In such a struggle, I support the democracy against the thugs.
Some folks seem to favor Hamas. Over at the Justice Through Music Project website, they’re headlining a video by Op-Critical called My Eyes.
In 2010, JTMP teamed up with musical-activist band Op-Critical and made the music video “My Eyes” criticizing the use of disproportionate force the Israeli Defense Force always uses against innocent Palestinian civilians. Four years later in 2014, the video still is relevant and needs to be reposted in light of the hundreds of civilians recently being killed by the IDF in the Gaza Strip. … Watch “My Eyes” below, and contact the Israeli embassy in DC and tell them to stop responding with such disproportionate military force in civilian areas.
If you can stomach the singing, you can watch the music video on YouTube.
Hamas has brought about the situation in Gaza. I’ve been amazed by the restraint the Israelis have shown. If I were going to call their embassy, it would be to offer my support.
As of 7 am ET this morning, the Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution US websites are still down.Hmmmmm.
… but a rather odd one. Within hours of a post here at Hogewash! pointing out the lack of any protests against the Boko Haram abductions in Nigeria on the Justice Through Music Project website, that site is down for a redesign.The Velvet Revolution US site is also being redesigned.
As I was scrolling through the past year’s blog posts at the Justice Through Music Project website, it struck me that there was no mention of the abduction of several hundred schoolgirls by the Boko Haram terrorists. Surely, justice requires that the kidnapped girls be released rather than sold into slavery.
OTOH, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is fond of accusing several his perceived enemies as being anti-Islamic. Perhaps he is unwilling to denounce Islamic terrorists. Or perhaps …
In his opposition to my motion to dismiss in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin wrote the following:I suppose by “non-profit that works with famous bands and artists” TDPK means “Justice Through Music Project.” If he does, he is misleading the court.
I recently took a look at the Justice Through Music Project website (No, I won’t link to it.) and worked my way back through over a year’s worth of its blog posts. There were lots of stories about “famous bands and artists,” but there was nothing about any of them working with or having anything to do with JTMP.
Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Bupkis.
