I was going to do a post about the increasingly weak web presence of the various Kimberlin-related websites, but all day yesterday, I kept getting this when I tried to check on breitbartunmasked dot com—I got this when I tried to view jtmp dot org—A bit of snooping turned up the fact that the server was either down or disconnected. The connection was good into the server farm, but failed at the IP address of the hardware that hosts the websites.
Did anyone else notice?
I didn’t think so.
While doing some research, I happened to check out the Justice Through Music Project Twitter feed. For a organization that’s trying to connect with young people, it has a remarkably tiny presence in that part of social media.Only 192 follower? Yep, here are a couple of ’em.Green Rush isn’t the only dope related follower, and the restaurant seems to be one of several spam business followers (discount Ray-Bans, etc.).
It’s almost as if something is distracting The Dread Performer/Pirate/Pro-Se Kimberlin from his day job.
Here’s a list of the web domains hosted on server 18.104.22.168. The all seem to have a connection to Brett Kimberlin.It can be … um … interesting to take a look at these sites. Most have donate buttons that take you to a JTMP or VRUS donation page.
An organization run by a convicted drug smuggler support the legalization of marijuana.BTW, the case on the docket just before the Cabin Boy’s™ trial on 16 April was Carroll County’s first DUI prosecution of a stoned driver since small quantities of dope were legalized in Maryland. Previously, the kid would have been charged with possession rather than a traffic offense.
As usual, the Kimberlin not-for-profits took advantage of six months worth of allowable filing delays and didn’t file their IRS Form 990 for 2013 until November, 2014. They are now available online. Here is the 990 for VelvetRevolution.US—
Revenue was down over 80%, and the outfit lost money for a second year in a row. What was a cash cow had become an expensive hobby.
Income was up at Justice Through Music Project.
We’ll take a deeper look at these documents over the next few days.
As the year coasts to a conclusion, here are the top Team Kimberlin stories from September and October. Continue reading
I admire Bono, and not just because he’s a good musician. I also respect the social activism that is grounded in his Christian faith.
The Dread Performer Kimberlin has taken to bad mouthing Bono over at the jtmp dot org website. (I read it so you don’t have to—even though my doing so probably doubles their legitimate web traffic.) You see, Bono wants to help feed the hungry in Africa, and he’s willing to partner with companies such as Monsanto in the process. Monsanto, of course, must be evil because they are a purveyor of GMO seeds. Bono, Brett would have us believe, is “selling out.”
Brett Kimberlin and his organizations oppose “Frankenfoods.” They would prefer to have upwards of a half-million children die each year from vitamin A deficiency rather than have golden rice available in poor countries. They would rather Africans starve than let them plant insect- or blight-resistance corn.
OTOH, poor Asian and African kids aren’t likely to hit a donate button on a JTMP or Velvet Revolution dot US webpage, whereas there may be a few anti-science moonbats who still donate.
Follow the money.
