Speaking of 501(c)(3)

The Gentle Readers who have been following the progress of the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness will remember that a big chunk of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s allegations rest on his claim that the National Bloggers Club never applied for recognition of its 501(c)(3) status by the IRS. Given the fact of NBC now being listed by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) entity, one can safely assume that such an application was made.

Indeed, it was. In 2012.

The Gentle Reader may also recall that back in 2012/2013 some organizations experienced unusual delays with the processing of their 501(c)(3) paperwork. NBC’s took almost two years to get through.

So as I spend a bit of this holiday weekend working on court papers for the RICO Madness, I’m pleased to learn that there are some IRS lawyers who may also be spending time prepping for court cases related to 501(c)(3). Stephen F. Hayes reports:

On July 10, IRS lawyers will appear in federal district court to explain why they never reported the emails missing in the context of a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch. And the following day, the IRS legal team is expected to try to block outside access to the evidence that Lois Lerner’s computer crashed—if such evidence exists.


It’s not the crime that gets you … it’s the cover up.

—Richard Nixon

UPDATE—Nixon only lost 18 minutes worth of data.

  1. Wasn’t this story supposed to be one of CB’s great Journ-o-list success stories? Hahahahahahaha!!! Just one more example of his failed, pathetic life.
    Hope your Independence Day is filled with joy, John. 🙂

  2. Nixon’s loss of evidence was based on physical, audio recordings. This loss was plausible, but not probable. This administrations’s loss of evidence is neither plausible or probable.

    • Since when does email live on one’s hard drive?

      This is a simple but devastating query.

      • The media is being deliberately obtuse about this. I simply ask – what happened to the mail server?

        E-mail isn’t stored at the PC level, it is stored at the server level. Backed up there, too. So, if the PC crashed, and the server didn’t…..

  3. Even as a person who has only taken introductory computer forensic courses, I have the forensic software and write blocking hardware required to image those drives.

    Grabbing an image is simple to do. And if they say the drives won’t spin up, numerous companies can retrieve data from the platters themselves.

    This whole “we can’t get anything from 6 drives” is a crock.

    • My understanding is that the drives were drilled, per regulation, after they were discarded. That doesn’t explain why the servers didn’t back them up.
