Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of Brett Kimberlin’s online fund raising efforts has been to ask for support for his “election protection” activities. Meanwhile, his associate have been involved in fraudulent campaign activities. Two years ago today, Hogewash! was asking Is Matt Osborne Really a Russian Bot?

* * * * *

Well, well, well, … Matt Osborne got his name in the papers, the New York Times, no less.

The Gentle Reader may have noticed a story running around the Internet recently about fake “Russian-style” Facebook campaigning that targeted an American election. That election was a recent Alabama senatorial election, and the victimized candidate was Roy Moore. One of the fake campaigns was called Dry Alabama, and it was run by Democrats.

The Dry Alabama Facebook page, which appeared to be run by teetotaler Baptists, had a blunt message: Alcohol is the devil’s work, and the state should ban it entirely. The related Twitter feed exhorted, “Pray for Roy Moore.” The actual purpose of the social media campaign was to paint Moore and his supporters as religious wackos.

Matt Osborne, a veteran progressive activist who worked on the project, said he hoped that such deceptive tactics would someday be banned from American politics. But in the meantime, he said, he believes that Republicans are using such trickery and that Democrats cannot unilaterally give it up.

“If you don’t do it, you’re fighting with one hand tied behind your back,” said Mr. Osborne, a writer and consultant who lives outside Florence, Ala. “You have a moral imperative to do this — to do whatever it takes.”

Osborne’s buddies at Protect Our Elections were unavailable for comment.

Oh, and one of the things that Kimberlin consistently campaigned against was the use of electronic voting machine—until this election cycle.

Hmmmm.

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.

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.

This is from an article at protectourelections dot org posted in 2017.I’ll zoom in on the copy to make it more easily read.Funny, but there haven’t been any comments from the Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin about electronic voting machines during the 2020 election cycle.

Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD from this date last year bears repeating.

* * * * *

Say, has anyone else noticed that Brett Kimberlin has never said anything about protecting our elections from interference by Ukraine?

* * * * *

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has said much about the problems with electronic voting machines this year either.

Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I can understand why one might conclude that Brett Kimberlin didn’t pretend to offer rewards like this one for this year’s elections because he heard from people he’d worked with during previous election cycles that the fix was in.

Of course, that may or may not be true, but it’s a reasonable hypothesis.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin’s not-for-profits raised millions of dollars in support. One of the things that they have allegedly been working on is election integrity. One might think that the current vote counting brouhaha would be the sort of thing that would get some sort of reaction out of organizations committed to protecting our elections. However, the total election integrity related traffic from all the websites and Twitter accounts is …

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The only actively updated Kimberlin-related Internet accounts appear the empr dot media “news” site and its related Twitter account. It’s still trying to peddle the idea of significant Russian interference in the election because the Russians are afraid of Joe Biden.

I must confess I hit the Like button for this tweet because I enjoyed the laughing at it.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Well, I think at least one reason has become obvious as to why Kimberlin avoided posting anything like this in 2020.

Of course, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin hasn’t been the only member of Team Kimberlin to offer a bogus reward. This post, Reward Claimed!, is from five years ago today.

* * * * *

wms201511060015Zwms201511060017ZI hereby claim half the reward. The other half should go to Brett Kimberlin for outing me in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit complaint.ECF 1-58

I should get my share for verifying my address and phone number. They are are 20 Ridge Road, Westminster, Maryland  21157, and (410) 596-2854. Since I don’t have a SEEKRIT SITE, I cannot provide a non-existent password.

Failure to pay the reward forthwith will be considered proof by the Cabin Boy™ that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is lying in his complaint.

UPDATE—rsmccain201500060103Z

UPDATE 2—The Cabin Boy™ has verified in a comment below that he won’t honor his reward offer. Furthermore, under the conditions outlined above, he appears to confirm that Brett Kimberlin lied in his RICO 2 complaint.

UPDATE 3—Perhaps the Gentle Reader is wondering why the Cabin Boy™ offered the reward. One might guess that he feels flush with insurance cash, but I don’t think that’s the reason. I think he’s taken a page out of the Team Kimberlin playbook of offering a reward with no intention of paying. I’ll bet he believes that the “reward” gives him a basis for saying that some anonymous person ratted out [insert harassment target’s name here] as Krendler and that it provides cover for his next faildox.

* * * * *

Both Kimberlin and the Cabin Boy™ are deadbeats.

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


During past election cycles, Brett Kimberlin has offered a reward for evidence of vote fraud. For example, this was posted during 2016 at protectourelection dot org—Of course the Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin never paid any rewards in the past, but he isn’t offering one this year. Given his associations with certain political operatives, it may be that he …

Oh, the Gentle Reader can form his opinion on the matter.

Yesterday, EuroMaidan PR was active again with a war report for 30 October posted on the empr dot media website and some tweets sent by @EuroMaidanPR. A couple of the tweets are war-related. Another is about the Kyiv Post‘s coverage of a Ukrainian’s not-for-profit’s lawyer sending a letter to Rudy Giuliani claiming that comment he has made about the not-for-profit are defamatory.

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.

My, my! Look who’s been busy over the last day or so.

It looks as if whoever is supposed to be minding this Twitter account finally decided to follow some other accounts, and one of them (@CognitiveBoy) followed back.

The @TGDNews Twitter account follows mostly individuals and none of the sort of accounts (i.e., other reporters, news organizations, newsmakers, etc.) that most news operations follow. The tgdnews dot com website appears to be only a few months old, and its global popularity rank is 14,967,426—which is even lower than itstime2020 dot org’s ranking.

Yesterday’s TKPOTD took note of the IRS revocation of the 501(c)(4) tax exemption for Brett Kimberlin’s Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. and that entity so longer being in good standing as a Maryland corporation. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today also dealt with a corporation that was dissolved for failure to keep up with its paperwork.

Four years ago today, this post about a laughable attempt to intimidate me ran as an I’m Not Making This Up, You Know.

* * * * *

I received this comment—email201609150153zThey really are panicking.

* * * * *

Dance is an art form closely related to music. Perhaps it’s because Justice Through Music Project website hasn’t been updated for more than a year-and-a-half that we’ve seen no comment about the movie Cuties from JTMP, but you’d think that the controversy surrounding the exploitation of young girls in such a film would have elicited some sort of comment from that organization. After all, it’s corporate charter says that its purpose is “to shed light on some of the injustices in the world with the power of music.” (Really. I’m not making that up either.)

Of course, that purpose includes only “some” of the injustices in the world, so maybe exploiting children for kiddie porn isn’t on the list. Or it could be that the Director of Justice Through Music Project doesn’t believe that what happened to those 11-year old girls was unjust.

Or he might be too busy failing at protecting another election. As of 10 pm ET Sunday evening—

YMMV.

The TKPOTD for one year ago today dealt with Brett Kimberlin’s not-for-profit Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.

* * * * *

Now that it seems that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has had his butt kicked in enough LOLsuits, it looks as if he’s tried to make a career change to protecting our elections. He’s renamed VelvetRevoultion.US as Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. and is trying to make a go of the role of The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin. However, he doesn’t seem to be making much impact providing “oversight of elections,” something Protect Our Elections claimed it does in a suit against the Federal Election Commission.

The Protect Our Elections website has so little traffic it can’t be reliably ranked. None of the content posted in 2019 was original. The half dozen posts were lifted from Politico (twice), The Daily Beast, The Rolling Stone, Salon, and the Puffington Host. The last post that appears to contain any original content was about the disputed North Carolina House District 9 contest. I went up last December. Nothing posted in the past year has generated a single comment. Not. A. Single. Comment.

Moreover, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin did not properly oversee this week’s special election to settle the NC-09 House election. Brett Kimberlin isn’t doing any better protecting our elections than he did smuggling dope into South Texas. Kimberlin, as Judge Hazel said, “has failed …”

* * * * *

2019 was a rough year for Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. On 15 May, 2019, the IRS revoked its 504(c)(4) tax exempt status. Donations to that entity never were tax deductible, but revocation of 504(c)(4) means that POE/EMPR is itself no longer tax exempt. Perhaps that’s the reason why this was allowed to happen.

BTW, Protect Our Elections is still a registered trade name belonging to Justice Though Music Project. Kimberlin renewed the registration on 20 January, 2020.

Meanwhile, the @itstime_2020 Twitter account for the current attempt at influencing an election still had no followers as of 10:30 pm ET Saturday.

I stumbled upon a link to a music video posted on YouTube last week that had the following information included in the credits—

I’ll make a couple of comments.

First, this explains what The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has been doing instead of focusing on his Protect Our Elections/EMRP Inc. not-for-profit.

Second, I once remarked that while I would normally advise someone with The Dread Deadbeat Performer musical talent not to give up his day job, I was willing to make an exception in Kimberlin’s case. I’ll stand by that exception for Kimberlin.

Brett Kimberlin’s only real footprint on the Internet is on sites such as Hogewash! which tell the truth about him. None of his attempts at generating a web presence of his own have been successful. The TKPOTD for five years ago today took a look at the comments, or rather the lack of comments, he had been able to generate at the velvetrevolution dot us website. (That not-for-profit is now called Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.)

* * * * *

Every once in a while, I take a look at the various Kimberlin websites to see what, if any, influence he may be having. I noticed this at the Velvet Revolution US site.VRUScomments20150530No one has made any comments to the featured posts. Indeed, scrolling down the front page, I found that none of the posts had any comments.

It seems that the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is having about as much success in the marketplace of ideas as he is in the courts of law.

* * * * *

You’d think that with the current controversy over vote-by-mail there would be some activity over at the protectourelections dot org website, but nothing new has been posted for almost three months.

Hmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I must confess that I’ve been bogged down in my Real World work life and haven’t paid much attention to The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin’s protectorelections dot org website of late. While I wasn’t looking, the site posted an article with original content (everything for the past year or so has been ripped off from other websites). The new article is dated 5 February, 2020, and it tries to spin the problems with the Democrats reporting app for the Iowa Caucus as a Russian hack.

Without evidence, the article proposes the following similarities between the Iowa debacle and an alleged Russian attack on an election in Ukraine:

  1. Malware and/or denial of services attack to delay and distort election results;

  2. Interference of election result transmission to central tabulators;

  3. Chaos that undermined vote counting and confidence in election results;

  4. Propaganda effort to blame delay on those who oppose pro-Russian candidate; (sic)

BTW, the authority cited for the alleged attack in Ukraine is empr dot media, an English-language Ukrainian “news” website hosted on the same server as breitbartunmasked dot com and greencasamaryland dot org. In 2017, Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revoution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.

Of course, Protect Our Elections takes the position that the Russians favor Bernie in the Democratic primaries because they favor Trump in the fall.

In the case of Iowa, Russia wants chaos and wants to use that chaos to divide the Democrats.  Of all the major candidates, Russia wants Bernie Sanders to be the nominee against Trump so the false narrative being spun by Russia and Trump is that Joe Biden and the DNC caused this Iowa meltdown in order to deprive Sanders of his win there.  Clearly, in the case of the Iowa cyber catastrophe, the real beneficiaries are Russia, Trump and Sanders.  Although election officials are feverishly trying to spin the failure on a bad app rather than Russia, Americans need to understand that when Russia benefits from something, it likely has a hand in it.

And that’s supposed to make sense? Let me get this straight—Democratic party officials are trying to hide hacking by the Russians in the Iowa primary in order to help Russia and Trump in November.

Uh, huh.

If Kimberlin expects that kind of crackpot theory to generate more donations to Protect Our Elections, he should probably fix the PayPal link.
