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.

Here’s the TKPOTD from two years ago today. As we’ll see, it appears to have a connection to yesterday’s TKPOTD.

* * * * *

This post is up at Brett Kimberlin’s protectourelections dot org—Protect our elections?

Ummm … that’s about elections in Ukraine.

The Dread Deadbeat Protestor Kimberlin has renamed the 501(c)(4) not-for-profit VelvetRevolutionUS as “Protect Our Elections/EMPR, Inc.,” and empr dot media is a PR website promoting Ukraine’s interests. Perhaps this tells us exactly whose elections Brett Kimberlin views as “ours.”

Hmmmmmmm.

* * * * *

Petro Poroshenko was the President of Ukraine who Joe Biden threatened with withholding U. S. aid unless the prosecutor investigating Burisma (a company with Hunter Biden on its board of directors) was fired. Poroshenko claimed that he was never pressured by Biden. Biden has bragged on video that his threat was effective. Biden’s and Poroshenko’s names reappear together in the news from time to time, and empr dot media’s news coverage appears to have a pro-Poroshenko/Biden slant.

The question remains—which nation’s elections does Brett Kimberlin view as “ours.”

What Did the President Know, and When Did He Know It?


I remember watching the Senate Watergate hearings in 1973 and hearing Senator Howard Baker ask that question. It has again become appropriate, this time related to what the President knew in 2016. John Hinderacker has a post over at PowerlLine examining recently declassified information bearing on that question.

Highly redacted handwritten notes from a briefing CIA Director Brennan gave to President Obama on 28 July, 2016 have been declassified.

The relevant text reads:

We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from….

CITE alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on 26 July of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services.

President Obama had several comments or questions, only one of which survives redaction. He wanted to know whether there was any evidence of collaboration between the Trump campaign and the Russians. Brennan’s answer to that question isn’t recorded in the notes, but we know from other documents that the fact that there was no such evidence was communicated to Obama. Contributions by Comey, McDonough and Rice are fully redacted.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about Brennan’s notes is their date (assuming July 28 is correct). According to the intelligence report, Hillary Clinton approved the plot to smear Trump with the Russia collusion fiction on July 26. Just two days later, the head of the CIA, the FBI Director, the National Security Adviser, the President’s Chief of Staff and the President himself met, presumably in the Oval Office, to discuss the intelligence. The report, picked up by spying on the Russians, who I take it were spying on Hillary, was obviously top priority and was taken seriously by the intelligence community, in the person of Brennan.

What little reporting that has been done on this briefing has focused on either the claim that the Trump/Russia collusion hoax originated inside of the Clinton campaign or the claim that President Obama was informed of the hoax within days of it being launched.

There’s another important angle here. The CIA learned of Clinton plan because it had leaked to the Russians. What are the odds that the same leaker(s)/operative(s) would have been embedded in the inner circle of a Clinton White House staff?

We dodged a very large bullet in 2016.

What are the odds? There’s that six degrees of separation thing about how many level of contacts separate any two people, but how likely is it that any two people a connected via only one degree of separation?

Before I started writing about Brett Kimberlin, I had a vague recollection of him as the federal prisoner who had claimed to be Dan Quayle’s dope dealer. It wasn’t long after I started writing about him that I found the number of degrees of separation between us was one. It turned out that I had connections to several people who had known Kimberlin while he was in Indiana. (Mrs. Hoge went to school at IU in Bloomington, and while she never met Kimberlin, she had several friends knew him.) This post, An Interesting Coincidence re #BrettKimberlin, is from eight years ago today.

* * * * *

We didn’t pick up yesterday’s mail until we were coming in from church this morning. Mrs. Hoge handed me a package that turned out to contain a copy of Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin. A friend finally got me a personal copy via a used book seller.

The book has one of those clear plastic protective jackets that you find on library book, and, sure enough, it’s stamped as being a discarded book from a library. The Monroe County Public Library. In Bloomington, Indiana.

Bloomington is where TDPK was selling drugs when he was a teenager. It’s where the activities that led to his first conviction (for perjury) took place. Bloomington is turning out to be a real source of information. Perhaps some more follow up with personal contacts is in order.

* * * * *

Those follow up contacts have been excellent sources of information. I wasn’t able to publish much of that information directly because of privacy concerns, but it often pointed to which rock to turn over next.

But back to my recollection of Kimberlin falsely claiming to have sold dope to Dan Quayle. That lie didn’t work either in 1988 or 1992, and it was debunked in Citizen K which was a biography authorized by Kimberlin. More recently, his band of hackers failed to tip the election toward Hillary protect our election in 2016, and his anti-Trump efforts don’t seem to be getting much traction this year. (itstime2020 dot org is still stuck below #14,000,000 for its global popularity ranking.)

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the grandiose gestures that Brett Kimberlin has made during presidential elections has been to offer rewards (usually $100,000) for information proving election fraud.Looking at Velvet Revolution US’s IRS Form 990s shows that the organization never had the financial ability to pay such a reward, so it seems to me that the empty offers were futile attempts to draw positive attention to Kimberlin’s activism.

Given Kimberlin’s ties to admitted Democrat operatives such as Alexandra Chalupa, the Gentle Reader should not be surprised to find that Kimberlin isn’t offering any such reward this year. Perhaps he already knows …

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the websites that Brett Kimberlin has been involved with is called westandwithukraine dot org. I wrote about it in the TKPOTD on this date last year. There’s been a recent change.

* * * * *

I’ve actually spent some time reading the content of westandwithukraine dot org. It’s one of The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s websites. It went up in 2014. All of the posts prior to August, 2016, have been memory-holed, but much of the earlier material is backed up on the Internet Wayback Machine (web dot archive dot org).

I haven’t found any original material on the site. It all seems to have been lifted from other sites. While most of the posts are news stories that would be interesting to someone following the Ukraine/Russia conflict or who was generally interested in Ukrainian culture, there are some posts that stood out for their political content. One post from April, 2017, was a puff piece promoting George Soros and claiming that opposition to the billionaire is a Russian black op.

The Soros obsession is gripping the world and shows no sign of going away. Democratic movements are not winning many of their battles against dictators and would-be dictators. These leaders, many of whom have been in power for too long, need people to believe that the enemy is someone else. Above all, Putin needs this myth. It can only be hoped that Putin will be gone before Soros. The world needs George Soros far more.

There are indications of Soros’ involvement with the shenanigans going on in Ukraine. Elizabeth Vaughn reports this over at RedState:

Shortly before Lutsenko took office, then-U.S. Embassy Charge d’ Affaires George Kent sent a letter to the Prosecutor General’s office asking them to end the investigation. Kent made it clear that “U.S. officials had no concerns about how the U.S. aid had been spent.”

If this account is correct, the Obama administration pressured a foreign government to drop an investigation into an organization they had co-founded along with activist George Soros. They were interested in preventing American taxpayers from learning how their tax dollars were being spent as well as concealing their collaboration with Soros. But, above all, they were each doing their part to insure that Hillary Clinton won the presidency.

Hmmmmm.

We know that Brett Kimberlin was working with Alexandra Chalupa during 2016 and 2017 and that both of them were involved in attempts to use foreign sources to dig up dirt on persons connected to the Trump campaign and, later, the Trump administration. I’m sure someone is following the money.

* * * * *

As noted above, things have changed at westandwithukraine dot org. When I checked on it last month, it was being hosted on the Fintel Associates server that hosts jtmp dot org, the Justice Though Music Project website, and protectourlelections dot org, the now apparently abandoned US-based Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc website. In the last few days, the hosting for westandwithukraine dot org has been moved to a server at sites dot google dot com. However, the new site contains no content.As I said a year ago—Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin never should have gone after bloggers who were writing truthful things about him. He never should have sued blogger, especially me, for defamation. The TKPOTD for six years ago today outlines what he lost when the court threw out the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. nuisance LOLsuit.

* * * * *

Most of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit died before the trial stated when Judge McGann threw out five of the seven counts in his complaint on summary judgment. During the trial, Judge Johnson found that TDPK hadn’t presented a “scintilla” of evidence to support the remaining defamation and false light counts and granted a directed verdict in favor of us defendants.

As a matter of law, we defendants now have findings on the merits that we did not engage in malicious prosecution against Brett Kimberlin, that we did not conspire to abuse process against Brett Kimberlin, that we did not defame Brett Kimberlin, that we did not engage in false light invasion of Brett Kimberlin’s privacy, that we did not harass Brett Kimberlin, that we did not intentional inflict emotional distress on Brett Kimberlin, and that that we did not stalk Brett Kimberlin. The claims made by Brett Kimberlin were found to have no basis in fact. That includes the following allegations specifically made in his second amended complaint:

• There is no evidence for his claim that he was assaulted by Aaron Walker.
• There is no evidence for his claim that Aaron Walker or I suborned perjury from Tetyana Kimberlin.
• There is no evidence for his claim that Tetyana Kimberlin’s accusation against him of third degree sexual offense was false.

Furthermore, the court ruled that we did not defame TDPK or place him in a false light when we said or wrote the following things about which he complained in his suit:

• That he caused Aaron Walker to be fired from his job.
• That any of us believe he is a pedophile.
• That he has used mentally abusive tactics against his wife.
• That he is evil.
• That he is a misogynist.
• And all the other things he cited in his second amended complaint.

TDPK’s very own false narrative has been gutted. It’s now roadkill, lying open for all to see. It isn’t pretty. But lies never are when you see them for what they are.

Meanwhile, TDPK has his omnibus answer to all the motions to dismiss in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness due on 15 October.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

Kimberlin is a slow learner. He kept suing bloggers, including me. I argued in subsequent suits that his reputation was so poor because of his history as a serial bomber that it was impossible to defame him, so he had no grounds to sue for defamation. Eventually, one of the courts agreed with me. It granted defendants dismissal for Kimberlin’ failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted because his reputation made him defamation proof.

It appears that Kimberlin has refrained from further litigation since his Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. RIOC 3 LOLsuit was dismissed, but he’s found other project to fail at. He failed in his election protection activities in 2016. He got scammed out of $9,000 when the dirt he thought he was buying on the Trump administration turned out to be bogus. And it’s been over a week since his @itstime_2020 account had a fresh tweet or picked up a follower. It still only has 2.

Failing failures gotta fail.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The reason why Brett Kimberlin hasn’t won any of the lawsuits he filed as part of his attempt to use lawfare to silence truth reporting about him seems to be that he doesn’t understand how to structure a rational argument based on evidence. It has often seemed that he could not differentiate between the Real World and the fantasy realm of his wishes. The TKPOD from six years ago today contained an excerpt of a Judge Johnson’s frustrated attempt to explain to Kimberlin why he had to place actual testimony and documents into evidence in order to have a case for the jury to consider in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.LOLsuit.

* * * * *

After The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin rested his case during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial, we defendants moved for a directed verdict in our favor because he had not presented evidence establishing the element of defamation or false light. Here is a small part of Judge Johnson’s extended colloquy with TDPK on whether he had shown that what we said and wrote about him was false.

THE COURT: I’m not asking you to prove anything. I’m asking you who in this courtroom yesterday or today said that those statements were false?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Your honor, in a defamation case —

THE COURT: You hate answering questions —

MR. KIMBERLIN: No, no, I’m just trying to —

THE COURT: Who said it was false?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Who said it was false? They —

THE COURT: Did you want to read this? I mean —

MR. KIMBERLIN: I know what it says —

THE COURT: I didn’t make this up. This is Maryland law.

MR. KIMBERLIN: I think that the jury has to make that call, whether it’s false. And whether —

THE COURT: But there has to be some evidence. They just can’t pull things out of the air. A jury, they just can’t go back there and decide what they want to decide. I have to give them instructions on the law. And the instructions on defamation — Maryland pattern jury instruction 12.1 “a defamatory statement is a false statement about another person that exposes that person to public scorn, hatred” — so nobody in here, in this case said that they hated you, you haven’t put any evidence up that they hated you — “contempt or ridicule” — there’s no evidence of that — “thereby discouraging others in the community from having a good opinion of or from associating or dealing with the person. Defamation may result from a statement communicated to a third person either orally or in writing.” And here you have — I’ll call them, well, bloggers, I guess they’re reporters — reporting stories and bantering back and forth regarding stories that, I think it originated, the whole thing started back in Indiana many, many, many years ago. And so what is the jury going to — how are they going to consider whether there was public scorn?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Your honor —

THE COURT: This’ll go lot faster if you try to answer my question. If you don’t have an answer, say you don’t have an answer.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Being called a pedophile is automatically public scorn, I mean —

THE COURT: Look, I’m getting — you’ve said that, I understand it. But I’m focusing on the Maryland law that I have to tell the jury. Now what I’m asking you — let’s take it one by one. The statement has to — you have get to to contempt. Any evidence of that?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, I put my daughter on the stand and she testified that we had suffered —

THE COURT: That she had suffered?

MR. KIMBERLIN: No, that our family had suffered. That I had suffered.

THE COURT: Look, you’re the only party in this case.

Narratives are not false just because TDPK doesn’t like them. There were very few possible witnesses that Kimberlin could have produced who could have testified of their firsthand knowledge that he had not engaged in any of the behavior that led folks to be suspicious of him. There were the women who were the girls he was allegedly involved with in Indiana (as reported by Mark Singer). There was his estranged wife who did not come to court to support him. There was the possibility of his own testimony, given that the judge seemed willing to bend the Maryland Rule on perjurers and let him testify. No one else would have been a competent witness.

I suspect that TDPK stayed off the stand because he was afraid of cross examination and being caught in perjury.

popcorn4bkJudge Johnson ruled in our favor. TDPK is making noises about an appeal and a second federal lawsuit. It seems that he’s beginning to understand that the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness is doomed. It will be interesting to see what federal issue he might use in a second federal suit.

I’m sure Acme is working overtime.

* * * * *

Kimberlin has never let the Truth get in the way of his false narratives, which may explain why he no longer appears to have credibility with many of the people who used to find him useful.

While I was checking on the status of the itstime2020 dot org website on Thursday evening, I found that Kimberlin has moved the old velvetrevolution dot us domain from hosting on a Fintel Associates server to the xeonhosting dot org server in Holland that hosts breitbartunmasked dot com, empr dot media, greencasamaryland dot org, itstime202 dot org, and kelsiekimberlin dot com. However, I was unable to connect to velvetrevolution dot org at its new IP address.The old VRUS website seems to have suffered a glitch while being moved between servers. I suppose Kimberlin can get one of the expert hackers who helped him protect the 2016 election to fix the problem.

Yet Another Rule 5


Over the past few years, the Gentle Reader has seen references to three Rule 5s here at Hogewash!

Stacy McCain’s Rule 5—Everybody loves a pretty girl.
Saul Alinsky’s Rule 5—Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 5—Often mentioned when Brett Kimberlin violated it in many of his court filings.

Today, the Senate Homeland Security Committee authorized subpoena for John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper, and others to testify. The committee had held off issuing subpoenas to avoid interference with U. S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the Russian Collusion Hoax.

Over the next few weeks we will probably be seeing the application of another Rule 5—Invoke your Fifth Amendment right to silence when you’re under indictment.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. OK, a bit behind schedule, but more or less on track.

Heard at the In Re Flynn Hearing


Here’s what may be the money quote from the en banc rehearing of the In Re Michael Flynn mandamus petition at the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit today. In explaining why the list of reasons for dismissal given to the trial court were sufficient but not necessarily exhaustive, Acting Solicitor General Jeff Wall said—

The AG sees this in context of non-public information. It may be possible that the AG had before him information that he was not able to share with the Court.

Hmmmmm.

UPDATE—See my comment below.

An Interesting Question


Here’s an order from the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit in the Flynn case—(H/T, @AaronWorthing, @Techno_Fog)

28 USC § 455 deals with the disqualification of judges, and § 455(b)(5)(i) requires a judge to be disqualified when he “[i]s a party to the proceeding[.]”

Is the appeals court considering removing Judge Sullivan from the case because he took the unusual step of hiring counsel and filing a brief opposing Michael Flynn’s petition for a writ of mandamus? In doing so, did he make himself a party in the case?

Stay tuned.

 

18 USC § 1001


(a)Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
(1)
falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact;
(2)
makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or
(3)
makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;
shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.
(b)
Subsection (a) does not apply to a party to a judicial proceeding, or that party’s counsel, for statements, representations, writings or documents submitted by such party or counsel to a judge or magistrate in that proceeding.
(c)With respect to any matter within the jurisdiction of the legislative branch, subsection (a) shall apply only to—
(1)
administrative matters, including a claim for payment, a matter related to the procurement of property or services, personnel or employment practices, or support services, or a document required by law, rule, or regulation to be submitted to the Congress or any office or officer within the legislative branch; or
(2)
any investigation or review, conducted pursuant to the authority of any committee, subcommittee, commission or office of the Congress, consistent with applicable rules of the House or Senate.

That’s the law Scooter Libby was convicted of violating. It’s the law that Michael Flynn was pressured into pleading guilty to.

It’s being reported that U.S. Attorney John Durham will be interviewing former CIA Director John Brennan. Mr. Durham has already subpoenaed a great deal of Director Brennan’s emails, phone records, and other documents, so the former spymaster should probably choose his words carefully. Or invoke his Fifth Amendment right to silence.

This post titled Connecting Some of the Dots links to an interview Stacy McCain did with Brandon Darby. That interview points out the connections between Team Kimberlin and other leftists. When the post was published eight years ago today, Brett Kimberlin was being referred to a “Lord Voldemort (He Who Must Not Be Named Under Penalty of Peace Order)” because the unconstitutional gag order issued against Aaron Walker was still in effect.

* * * * *

Stacy McCain has published an interview with Brandon Darby about the connections between Brett Kimberlin Lord Voldemort, Neal Rauhauser, and mainstream progressives.

The story seems complicated until you put it into the historical perspective it exists within. Then it is quite simple. Left media doesn’t cover the story because many of them are involved with the networks of operatives we are discussing.

Read the whole thing.

* * * * *

Seriously, go read that interview. It lays out some of the ways that Team Kimberlin has been used as “well funded and organized shock troops whose goal is to destroy anyone who challenges their masters.” Brett Kimberlin has testified under oath that he and his associates were working with the Department of Justice on election hacking during the 2016 election, and he’s been deeply involved with some rather … umm … interesting Ukrainians and Ukrainian-Americans.

Will things get interesting this year?

Lawyers File Amicus Brief in Support of Michael Flynn


A group of lawyers have filed an amicus brief with Judge Sullivan in support of the Government’s motion to dismiss the criminal case against Michael Flynn. Here’s their brief and a list of their names.

I’ve had the privilege of working with a couple of these lawyers on First Amendment related issues.

Unmasked Intelligence


There are several theories floating around the Interwebz about how Michael Flynn’s unmasked name might have turned up in an FBI transcript of a phone call with the Russian ambassador. The recently declassified unmasking record doesn’t appear to show a timely request to unmask Flynn during the period between when the call was made and when other evidence suggests the FBI had the transcript. So how did the get it?

One possible explanation is that the FBI was working with information from a non-U.S. source.

The Five Eyes is a signals intelligence alliance among Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, and the US. Documents leaked by Edward Snowden in 2013 revealed that the Five Eyes has been spying on one another’s citizens and sharing the collected information with each other in order to circumvent their domestic legal restrictions on surveillance of citizens. Thus, if the Australian Signals Directorate successfully wiretaps a Russian, overhears something said by an American, and tips off the FBI, no laws have been broken—just severely bent. I picked the Aussies for that example because of another Australian connection to the Russian Collusion Hoax, but such a signal intercept could have been made by Canada’s Communications Security Establishment, New Zealand’s Government Communications Security Bureau, or the UK’s General Communications Headquarters.

There’s another explanation floating around suggesting the use of a Presidential authorization of a wiretap without a FISA warrant (something that is allowed under FISA). However, such a warrantless wiretap is still supposed to be subject to the same masking requirements as a court authorized one.

Obamagate raises some serious issues. Corruption of public officials is one. An unnecessary weakening of the Fourth Amendment is another.

BREAKING: Chicago Politician Suspected of Corruption


Rumors are circulating that a Chicago politician may have been involved in corrupt activities aimed at preventing the election of a political rival and at the entrapment of a member of that rival’s staff in a false criminal charge.

While the Chicago politician has not commented directly on the matter, a leaked version of a telephone call quotes him as being concerned for the rule of law.

Stay tuned for more as this story develops.

Why Would Adam Schiff Be Panicking?


Now that actual evidence is coming to light, more of the the behind the scenes activities and on camera lies of certain individuals is coming to light. The whole Russia Collusion Hoax was just that—a hoax—and its perpetrators are being exposed.

There never was any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia or any other foreign state or entity. This exchange from the December, 2017, interview of Andrew McCabe by the House Select Committee on Intelligence show a typical response to a “what evidence did or do you have” question.Nada. Zilch. Zip.

The whole thing was a fraud.

Of course, Adam Schiff isn’t the first politician who has lied to the public, but his lies have had a much more adverse effect on our country than most. The voters of the 28th District in California own it to the rest of America to turn him out of office.

But loss of his job should be the least of his worries.

A Shopping Suggestion


So the DoJ is moving to drop the false criminal case against Michael Flynn, and the DNI is saying that the Intelligence Community is willing to release testimony transcripts in accordance with the House Intelligence Committee’s 2018 vote. The recommendation to drop the case against Flynn was made by a U. S. Attorney who spent 10 years with the FBI and 10 years as a career prosecutor. The transcripts were cleared by career intelligence officers.

The usual suspects are in a tizzy.

Buy more popcorn.
