Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of Brett Kimberlin’s recurring bug-a-boos was Team Themis, a commercial intelligence operation run by some companies also engaged in government work. Kimberlin alleged in his Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit that Team Themis had be conducting a defamatory dirty operation against him on behalf of the Ul. S. Chamber of Commerce—and that my blogging here at Hogewash! was somehow connected with that operation.

Kimberlin has been griping about Team Themis for years. In fact, when I searched Breitbart Unmasked for references to Team Themis, I found one posted on 20 March, 2012, when the site was only one month old.

The former blogger, Seth L. Allen, then set out on an internet smear campaign to destroy both Brad Friedman and his business partner Brett Kimberlin. I won’t go into detail about either of them in this post, suffice it to say though that there was a larger campaign against both parties started by The U.S. Chamber of Commerce which had been under attack by organizations involved with Mr. Kimberlin, and which ended up in the folding of the HBGary Security firm over planned social media destruction campaigns against both Brad Friedman and his business partner: which HBGary had been competing for in the security sector with Palantir Security and a number of other firms that called themselves Team Themis.

One of the ways that I have thumbed my nose at Kimberlin through the years has been with occasional posts about a NASA mission called THEMIS. Such a post six years ago today resulted in some odd comments to which I responded this way—

* * * * *

THEMIS (Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms)  is a mission to investigate what causes auroras in the Earth’s atmosphere. The program is run by NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center and not by the agency just up the road that forgot to buy both vowels.

I have never had any connection to the program.

UPDATE—I found this attempted comment while taking my morning coffee break.TK201404041329ZOf course, the IP address doesn’t belong to Amazon.IPlookup20140404Not only that, it’s not actively assigned.NoMatch

Hi, Neal!

UPDATE—Ooooo! Struck a nerve, have we? This comment just came in attributed to my late mother.TK2014041542ZCan you say “desperation”?

BTW, There are indications that the partnership between Brad Friedman and Brett Kimberlin has been dissolved. They were the co-incorporators of Velvet Revolution US, but since the corporate name was change to Protect Our Elections/EMPR in 2017, Friedman hasn’t appeared to have any connection to the organization. The last IRS filing I’ve found listing Friedman as a Director was for 2015.

Hmmmmm.

  1. Your wierd google search hits were me trying to find a riff I did years back about Themis being part of the Alan Parkinson’s Project, an offshoot of Eisinhower’s Atoms for Pieces program, and resulted in mind control rays being focused on a trailer park in MD.

    Can’t find it on my hard drive, couldn’t find it by Google. Le sigh.

    It was a Krendler-worthy piece of fiction, though.

    Be well.
