Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has set up two not-for-profit entities. One is a 501(c)(3) organization called Justice Through Music Project. 501(c)(3) entities are tax exempt and donations to them are tax-deductible. The other was a 501(c)(4) organization originally named Velvet Revolution US. 501(c)(4) entities are also tax exempt themselves, but donations to them are not tax-deductible. Kimberlin changed the name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. in 2017, and the IRS revoked its 501(c)(4) status in 2019.

For several years, Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. was involved with the operation of an English-language Ukrainian news site call EuroMaidanPR (empr dot media). The empr dot org URL now redirects to ukrainefrontlines dot org, but that site contains much of the earlier version of the site and contains links to the (at)EuromaidanPR account on X (TSMSFKAT).

While wandering through the new site, I found an opinion piece posted on 25 August entitled After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, most Americans hate Russia, and I understand more about the difference between “dyakuyu” and “spasiba”. It’s bylined Kelsie Kimberlin. The article is a puff piece promoting her latest release, a song called Armageddon. The article quotes her as saying,

I write my songs myself, and often my dad helps me. It was he who helped me write “Armageddon” …

It certainly sounds as if he did.
