The Left’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week

Monday was a bit of a rocky start with the Supreme Court hearing oral arguments about challenges to the Texas law that allows citizens to bring lawsuits against persons who perform abortions. Based on the justices’ questions, the case isn’t a slam dunk for either side. A win for the Left isn’t a gimme.

Tuesday was election day. The Democrats lost bigly in Virginia, and were reduced to referring to the first black woman to win state-wide office as a “white supremacist.” They lost a special election in Texas in a heavily Latino legislative district. Most stunning, they barely able to keep the vote within the margin of theft in New Jersey.

Wednesday, oral arguments in the challenge to the New York handgun permitting system were heard by the Supreme Court. Most commentators are projecting a 6 to 3 decision vindicating the petitioners’ Second Amendment rights. (I’m betting on 5 to 4.)

Thursday, the first actual arrest was made in the Russia Collusion Hoax case. The supporting indictment filed by Special Prosecutor John Durham paints a picture of collusion by the Clinton campaign with Russians.

Friday, was the day that Nancy Pelosi was going give Joe Xiden a win by passing his more-than-a-trillion dollar “infrastructure” bill. She failed to do so, and also failed to move the legislation for the Build Back Better scam either.

And that’s just some of what went right this week.

UPDATE—Well, well, well … Mrs. Pelosi did move some legislation. She did get the Senate’s version of the infrastructure bill through 228 to 206 (7 not voting). 13 Republicans voted for the bill: Katko, Bacon, Van Drew, Young, Upton, Kinzinger, Gonzalez, Fitzpatrick, Reed, Gabarino, Malliotakis, McKinley, and Smith of New Jersey. Pelosi couldn’t have pulled this off without that Republican support. It will be interesting to see how many of these congresscritters are reelected.

An Arrest

It’s being reported that federal agents have arrested Steele dossier contributor Igor Danchenko. Special Prosecutor John Durham’s investigation resulted in a still sealed indictment, so the charge(s) is(are) not yet public.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

UPDATE—The Danchenko indictment has been unsealed. He’s charged with 5 counts 18 USC 1001 (False Statements) for lies he allegedly told the FBI. The case is filed in the Eastern District of Virginia, It won’t be tried by a DC jury.

I’m reading through the indictment during my lunch break. It looks pretty ugly for the Clinton campaign so far.

More later.

UPDATE—Igor Danchenko was arrested by “federal authorities,” but perhaps not by the FBI. Hmmmm.

UPDATE 2—Looking at the Criminal Case Cover Sheet on the court docket, I see that the Complaint Agency is the FBI. Hmmmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Gentle Reader who has been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin for several years may remember that one of Brett Kimberlin’s failed attempts at being seen as an important player was his involvement in the Russia Collusion Hoax. He’s since tried to scrub the Internet of his connections to that scam. For example russiadossier dot org has been gone for almost two years now.But it’s well backed up offline, as is his 2016 testimony about working with the Justice Department on election integrity. And the Internet still remembers his spending $9,000 on fake documents sought to smear a Trump appointee.

If he’s lucky, he’ll be treated as the small fish he really is.

Nothing to See Here. Move Along.

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan is a potential target of Special Counsel John Durham’s Russia Collusion Hoax investigation. Sullivan’s wife Maggie Goodlander clerked for Attorney General Merrick Garland when Garland was a federal judge.

The Rumor Mill

Over the last day or so, I’ve been seeing reports that Special Counsel John Durham has issued some subpoenas to interesting individuals and organizations. This morning, I’m seeing reports that the grand jury he has convened has issued further sealed indictments beyond the one of Michael Sussmann for lying to the FBI.

If Durham intends to prosecute the collusion hoaxers, he needs to secure indictments before the five year statute of limitations for federal crimes runs out. The next few months could be quite interesting.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

As summer slipped into autumn in 2016, the buzz around Washington was about the Russia Collusion Hoax being stirred up by the Clinton Campaign and “Tech Executive-1.” As part of his attempts to appear to be a real player (as opposed to a disposable hack), Brett Kimberlin offered the following testimony under oath in October, 2016, during a Maryland civil trial.Gentle Reader, I find it hard to believe that “Tech Executive-1” was relying on The Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin or his “specialists in cyber hacking.” It may be that they had some small part of the Russia Collusion Hoax, but  was Brett a significant player?

Of course not.

But That Was Four or Five … uh … Years Ago

As of 9 am ET this morning, this could still be found on TwitterAnd in other news, the New York Times has reported that Special Prosecutor John Durham is considering an indictment for lying to the FBI against one of the lawyers involved in spinning the false tale about the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank.

BTW, Jake Sullivan is the current White House Chief of Staff.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin is no stranger to failure. The TKPOTD for six years ago today emphasized that point with respect to the first of his RICO LOLsuits against me.

* * * * *

Here is what Judge Hazel has had to say about The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Madness—

Kimberlin failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … Kimberlin has failed to state a claim … Kimberlin has failed to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … he has failed … he has failed … He has failed to do so … the SAC fails to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has therefore failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed … his SAC failed to identify … attempt would also fail … Kimberlin has therefore failed … Kimberlin failed … necessarily must fail … he has failed … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … claim would still fail … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has failed … would still fail … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has failed to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed … has failed to state a claim … because he has “fail[ed] to plead facts” … must be dismissed as he has failed to plead facts … Kimberlin has failed … dismissal of § 1985(2) claim for failure to allege … his failure … Kimberlin has failed to state claims …

Plaintiff is mistaken.

Yep, that about covers it.

* * * * *

He failed at drug smuggling, and he failed at running an import/export business to/from Ukraine during his first parole. He has failed as a musician. He’s failed …

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was four years ago that Brett Kimberlin found himself mentioned in a national news story about one of the early attempts to use fake documents to attack the Trump Administration. Four years ago today, that provided More Brett Kimberlin News here at Hogewash!.

* * * * *

The Daily Caller has a piece up that looks into Brett Kimberlin’s connection to a former Democratic National Committee official and the forged documents recently debunked by BuzzFeed.

Hmmmm.

* * * * *

Kimberlin provided at least $ 9,000 in funding for the acquisition of those fake documents. That’s a lot of money for someone who pays himself only $ 19,500 from his “charity.” Where did that money come from? The Gentle Reader’s guess may or may not be as good as mine, but the exact source remains unproven.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Yesterday’s TKPOTD dealt with Brett Kimberlin getting mentioned on the Interwebz three years ago in connection with other Democrat operatives involved in the Russian Collusion Hoax.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has been associated with shady Democratic Party operatives at least since 1988 when he first lied about being Dan Quayle’s dope dealer. One of those connections surfaced during coverage of the Russian Collusion Hoax and was the subject of the TKPOTD for three years ago today.

* * * * *

After years of frivolous litigation involving multiple LOLsuits (I’ve been a defendant in four of ’em and a bogus peace order petition), The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has been singularly unsuccessful. And now his name is back in the news because of his association with Cody Shearer, the creator of the anti-Trump “Dossier No. 2.”

J. E. Dyer writes about the Shearer/Kimberlin connection in a post over at Liberty Unyielding.

Shearer, besides being a major piece of work in general, played a key role during the George H.W. Bush years, and the first Clinton campaign for the 1992 election, in hyping Brett Kimberlin’s claim that he (Kimberlin) had sold pot to then-Vice President Dan Quayle, years before when Quayle was younger.  Shearer had known Kimberlin for years, in other words, and used his (Shearer’s) journalistic pulpit to retail a politicized narrativeon Kimberlin’s behalf.

But although BuzzFeed and Daily Caller both cite unnamed sources affirming Kimberlin’s marginal role in the “Russia” narrative assembled separately in 2016 (again, Kimberlin denies it), what really completes the circle is Cody Shearer’s membership in the Shearer family, whose ties to the Clintons, including his own, could hardly be closer.

Read the whole thing. And also checkout this post over at The Weekly Standard.

* * * * *

The Weekly Standard is no more, but that link is still active; the post has been achieved by the Washington Examiner.

Given the way Kimberlin’s activities went silent just before the election, one wonders if he’s been told that he’s outlived his usefulness.

Losing Their Grip

Our Betters were surprised in 2016 when all those Deplorables voted the wrong way. They don’t seem to understand that it was their multiple failures to keep up their end of the American social contract that led to the 2016 revolt. While they may have executed a tactically successful counterstrike in 2020, I don’t believe they’ve put the strategic assets in place to properly regain and sustain their control.The analogy to the end of the Europeans’ control of their African and Asian colonies is useful, if inexact. The Europeans were tired after the war, and they were split by significant internal divisions. Their internal struggles made them less able to maintain control of their overseas possessions. I suspect that similar internal struggles on the Left will impede their elites attempts to restore their vision of normalcy. The turf wars between BLM and more mainstream democrats or between the Squad and the old guard in Congress (or the TERF war between the feminists and the LGBTQs) will sap the Left’s ability to enforce their will on increasingly rebellious Deplorables.

2021 is going to be interesting. And very, very ugly.

One Analyst’s View

J. E. Dyer has a thought provoking post over at Liberty Unyielding examining President Trump’s response to the election irregularities in various states. She divides what she believes is happening into a main effort (exposing the fraud to the public), a visible supporting effort (the lawsuits), and a less visible but key supporting effort (uncovering evidence). It’s that third part that is interesting.

In January, 2017, the last month of the Obama administration, voting systems were added to the list of “critical national infrastructure” to be protected by the Department of Homeland Security. In 2018, President Trump issued Executive Order 13848 designating foreign threats to voting systems as a national security concern.

And the effect of the E.O. was to articulate the national security justification for the means of surveillance to monitor and track what was being done with the implicated voting infrastructure.  In other words, whether the analysts were at Homeland Security (chartered with monitoring critical infrastructure), the FBI, Treasury, or even – for the foreign-power aspect of the problem – at CIA, they had presidential authority to pull trons and go to town.

If we know anything about Trump, we may reasonably guess that he’s had someone he trusts at the NSC level watching over the effort. The result could well be a devastating exposure of far more individuals in the U.S., as well as foreign operators, than anyone would imagine. It is by no means beyond the realm of possibility that many Democrats and even some Republicans, including elected officials, are on the list.

Yes, the next couple of months will be interesting. Read the whole thing.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in 2016, Brett Kimberlin testified under oath that he was working with the Department of Justice on protecting the November elections from foreign hackers. It appears that he was so confident that the election had been fully protected that he felt safe in filing his RICO 3 LOLsuit at the end of October. I became aware of the suit about a month after it had been filed—and after The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin and his colleagues had failed in their election protection scheme. This was the TKPOTD for four years ago today.

* * * * *

Here’s the motion to seal that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed in his LOLsuit against Breitbart, et al.

* * * * *

Nothing proceeded as TDPK had foreseen.

This Week’s Lawsuits

This week Sidney Powell finally released a couple of mid-sized krakens, one in Georgia and one in Michigan. The lawsuit argue the elections in those states were conducted fraudulently and offer testimony (affidavits) and evidence to support the allegations.

In Pennsylvania, a federal judge dismissed the President’s lawsuit over election irregularities, and the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit affirmed the decision, teeing the case up for the Supremes. Meanwhile, a state judge found that the mail-in balloting probably violated the state constitution, and has issued a temporary injunction stopping certification of the election. Given the state’s Supreme Court’s previous rulings, I’ll bet the injunction is overturned on appeal, but this case provides a second avenue to challenge the fraud in Pennsylvania.

Finally, Carter Page has filed suit against the Department of Justice and several individuals, including James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Kevin Clinessmith, and group of Joe Does, seeking 75 million dollars in damages. The suit is based in the civil damage claims provisions of FISA, the Federal Tort Claims Act, the Privacy Act, and the Supreme Court Bivens decision. Discovery in this case will be interesting.

Certain things will not go away or be swept under the rug regardless of who takes the oath of office in January.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin tried running his election protection scams for over a decade, and was able to gin up support from interesting sources. This post, Velvet Revolution US: Bigger Than It Seems?, from eight years ago today deals with funding he received from the Threshold Foundation.

* * * * *

The above extract from the 2008 annual report of the Threshold Foundation describes Velvet Revolution US as

… an online activist organization of 154 affiliate organizations and 18,984 members.

The 35 kilobucks in funding was supposed to be for an “Election Protection Strike Force.”

Uh, huh.

<mockery>One wonders if one of the “affiliate organizations” is a real estate enterprise offering to sell bridges to most of (say, 18,980) the “members.”</mockery>

* * * * *

Of course, it is absolutely false to say that Velvet Revolution ever had more than a handful of members. I’m not sure how such claims are categorized in the not-for-profit world, but in engineering we would refer to them as a lies.

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin is also The Dread Deadbeat Perjurer Kimberlin.

Exposing Rot

There’s a post by Ben Weingarten over at American Greatness about what he sees as Trump’s Greatest Achievement: Trump has exposed the  rot and corruption that pervades the American system.

For four years, President Trump has achieved major victories in the face of this opposition, making the country richer and stronger than it was when he assumed office.

But his greatest achievement has been boldly and courageously standing up to this wounded bear of a ruling class, which has now shown America its true face. Americans’ eyes are now irrevocably open to what has become of their country, and what must be overcome to take it back.

President Trump’s predecessors—Truman on the bureaucracy, or Eisenhower on the military-industrial complex, or Nixon on the corrupted media—scratched the surface of the challenges we face. But none exposed it so openly, and in such breadth and depth.

If the history is written by the ultimate victors—and the house almost always wins—it may well be that this entire story is missed. Certainly, it will be misrepresented, warped, and glossed over in the most outrageous of ways. It will probably be censored too.

Nevertheless, we must write it: For posterity, and for our fellow countrymen, in the here and now, more motivated than ever before to reclaim this land we love.

As Andrew Breitbart noted, politics is downstream from culture, and over the last six or so decades, the credentialed middle class has become more disconnected from the bulk of American society and began to view themselves as superior to the deplorables whose lives they rule by virtue of their positions in the bureaucracy, the media, and certain privileged professions.

Charles Murray pointed out in his book Coming Apart that as Our Betters led American society away from such virtues as marriage, industriousness, religiosity, and honesty, they still held on to some of those virtues themselves. College educated folks are now significantly more likely to marry and stay married, raising children in intact families, than are the population as whole. They work hard, often administrating or enabling the welfare state. They tend to have a religious focus for their lives—if not a traditional religion, then some marxist replacement. But they have given up on the epistemological underpinnings of Western logic, so they often view Truth as malleable, making consistently honest behavior unlikely if not impossible.

Trump pulled the bandage off the scab. Will we properly treat the wound?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for four years ago today was a post of testimony Brett Kimberlin gave under oath during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial in October, 2016.

* * * * *

This was part of Aaron Walker’s cross examination of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial.

MR. WALKER: Now, remind me, if you will, what you do for your charities.
MR. KIMBERLIN: I run a non-profit Justice Through Music, and we work with, ah, famous bands and artist to get young people involved with civic participation. We, ah, we also work with, ah, dissidents around the workd to get them, um, their message out to the general public. We work with, um, a lot of voting registration groups. We, um, registered literally hundreds of thousands of young people to vote over the years. Um, we have been very much involved, um, with making sure that voting machines are, are not hackable and that their, um, they provide and accurate reading. We were very involved with making sure that, ah, Maryland, ah, got away from the electronic voting machines and changed over to the paper ballots, ah, that I believe they used this year for the first time in, um, Maryland. And, um, we have, ah, we have a lot of [unintelligible] campaigns. For example, we had a campaign called “Iran“, um, “Iran Now”, um, during the Green Revolutionin, in Iran. Ah, We’re doing a lot of, of, because my wife’s from Ukraine, we’re doing a lot of, ah, work with Ukraine. Right now, I’m working with, ah, Congressmembers, um, on legislation to protect the vote. I’m working with the Department of Justice right now to, ah, to protect, ah, this coming election. There’s a lot of information about hacking by Russian, and our team that works for me are, are specialists in hacking and, ah, electronic cyberhacking and things like that. So we are probably one of the foremost groups in, in the country on that.

Hmmmm.

* * * * *

I believe that it is reasonably safe to assume that changes in the leadership at the Department of Justice have resulted in The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin, Protect Our Elections/EMPR, or any of their associates not being knowingly engaged by the DoJ in “protecting” this week’s election.

One of the things the Gentle Reader might want to consider in choosing which candidate to vote for is the likelihood of that candidate’s changing the DoJ back to an organization that would use Brett Kimberlin as part of an election “protection” scheme.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Early in The Saga of the Dread Deadbeat Pirate/Pro Se/Protector/Performer/Perjurer/Etc. Kimberlin’s, one of his PR Flacks tried to “warn” those of us who were writing about him of the consequences of our truthful reporting.OTOH, if Kimberlin hadn’t engaged in lawfare as a failed attempt at brass knuckles reputation management, he would have remained sufficiently unimportant to avoid public notice.

The Bidens and the Deep State

J. E. Dyer has a post over at Liberty Unyielding about the timeline of the FBI’s investigation of Hunter Biden’s laptop and how it interleaves with other events of the past couple of years. She points out that the Deep State and it’s allies have known about the Biden’s all along, whereas Trump and his supporters have been learning about the Biden’s and Ukraine and other hidden stories as various rocks have been turned over and tings have slithered out.

Since William Barr became Attorney General, the Trump administration has slowly been gaining on the Deep State’s knowledge advantage.  Ponder the point that the Bidens aren’t the only game in town – Clintons, Russiagate, Spygate; the Bidens are just one of many interlinked tragedies – and you begin to realize how very big and pervasive this thing is.  It’s a war nobody knew in advance how to fight, but that’s what it is: a war.

In a war, you pick your battles, you pick your terrain, and you shape the battlespace to drive toward your end-state.

Indictments and convictions will be a useful tool for some aspects of taking down the Deep State, as the ultimate and necessary goal.  But indictments and convictions affect individuals, not the Deep State infrastructure or its corporate will.  Breaking the Deep State’s will is what will be necessary to win the Republic back for the people.

Read the whole thing.

I was disappointed that only one DoJ lawyer involved in the warrant application fraud on the FISA court was taken down before the election, but rushed, half-baked cases that can’t result in guilty pleas or convictions aren’t what the public needs. Patient investigation followed by a well-aimed strike at the right moment is what I hope has been happening and will happen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD from six years ago today dealt with one of Brett Kimberlin’s vain attempts at having a noticeable impact on the public consciousness without the use of high explosives.

* * * * *

Gentle Reader, do you ever wonder what the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin does when he isn’t involved in vexatious lawsuit? He’s the Director of a not-for-profit called Justice Through Music Project. One of the sca … uh … activities run by JTMP is a web site called Protect Our Elections dot org. The site claims to be a “national collaboration of grassroots organizations that have joined together to reclaim our democracy, providing oversight to rescue our elections from partisan politics and privatization.” It has a DONATE button that appears to go straight to JTMP’s authorize dot net account.

Now, that’s a chilling thought: Brett Kimberlin providing “oversight to rescue our elections.”

Here’s what the top of the site’s home page looked like around 8 pm yesterday evening.POE_org_mainAnd here are a couple of front page links to featured stories.POE_nocommentsThe stories relate to a nuisance suit that Protect Our Elections has filed against the Federal Elections Commission. Take a close look at what I’ve circled in red. Those are the comment counts on the stories. As of 8 pm yesterday, there had been absolutely none. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Bupkis.

That shows you the relative impact of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s Internet operation vis-à-vis those of us who he is suing because we write truthful things about him. Indeed, the most recent comment on the POE site was made at 8:59 pm on 11 August. By way of comparison, Monday noon’s Are You Pondering What I’m Pondering? post generated six comments.

The Team Kimberlin theory of lawfare involves punishment of the victims by causing them to have to deal with the time and expense of a protracted legal ordeal run at relatively low cost to the pro se plaintiff. It’s backfired. TDPK is up against pro se defendants, one of whom is a lawyer, who are able to mount low-cost defenses; First Amendment activists with pro bono legal counsel; and media personalities and organizations whose best interests are served by fighting the suit.

popcorn4bkOops.

The Streisand Effect will be cranked up to 11 until all TDPK’s vexatious lawsuits are completely dealt with. Brett Kimberlin won’t disappear from public scrutiny until he’s either given up or been beaten. Given his poor choices to date, I suspect we’ll have to whip him in court.

Stay tuned.

Oh, one more thing … evil hates the truth, but it hates mockery even more.FrenchTaunt
UPDATE—I just reread POE’s description of itself. The stated goal is to rescue our elections from partisan politics.

Say what?

I thought the whole purpose of an election was partisan politics, as in, choosing between two or more candidates representing differing views. Whigs v. Tories. Democrats v. Republicans. That sort of thing.

Of course, JTMP’s politics are avowedly progressive. Perhaps the statement is simply an honest description of a desire for one-party rule.

* * * * *

Through the years, Kimberlin has given up any pretense of non-partisanship, openly working with Democrat and Ukrainian interests since the 2016 election cycle. His attempt at affecting this year’s election seems to have fizzled. Both his It’s Time 2020 and EMPR websites have gone silent, and the Justice Through Music Project site isn’t accessible.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD from five years ago today examined one of the claims Brett Kimberlin made in his second federal RICO LOLsuit against me.

* * * * *

Here’s an interesting bit of information from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s opposition to the motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.ECF 74-p21A loss in his earnings? Hmmmmm. That loss must have been relatively recent. The IRS Form 990s for Justice Through Music show him making $19,500 a year in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. (2014’s form doesn’t appear to have been filed yet.) Of course, TDPK’s claim about lost earnings will be easily checked if the suit gets into discovery.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

Indeed, Kimberlin was lying. The Justice Through Music Project Form 990s through 2018 all show his compensation as $19,500 per year.

They also show an interesting trend in the not-for-profit’s income.

2013 $380,287
2014 $595,230
2015 $373,508
2016 $618,790
2017 $394,740
2018 $561,794

Of course, it could be purely coincidental that JTMP’s income spiked upward during election years. After all, as a 501(c)(3) entity, it isn’t supposed to engage in partisan political activity, and Kimberlin created the now defunct Velvet Revolution US as a 501(c)(4) which could engage in political advocacy.

Meanwhile, all to the Kimberlin-related websites, including jtmp dot org as of the time this post is being drafted, hosted in the U. S. have gone dark.
