Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin has a long history of making inflated claims about the effectiveness and reach of his not-for-profits Consider the howler detailed seven years ago today in a post titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin’s Extended Crew.

* * * * *

During the damages hearing for the Kimberlin v. Allen lawsuit back in November, 2011, TDPK said the following under oath concerning one of his “charities”:

The other organization is called Velvet Revolution. And Velvet Revolution is a, it’s an organization that has over 150 organizations affiliated with it nationwide, with a membership base of over, over a million people …

That’s one heckuva following. Gentle Reader, do you think it’s real?

Me neither.

* * * * *

In 2017, Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. While the empr dot media Ukrainian news website still appears to be a going concern, the protectourelections dot org website has only rarely been updated over the past year. The PayPal donation link goes to dead account, and has been like that for a while.

While VRUS may have tried to “affiliate” with 150 or so other groups, few, if any, of the connections were two-way. If Kimberlin were able to exploit “over a million people” as potential donors, the POE website’s PayPal link would be too valuable to allow it to be out of service.

It’s almost as if Kimberlin was lying.

Well, finally!

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has gotten around to something “new” at ptotectourelections dot org. It’s a repost ripoff of an article from Politico that tries to tie some buggy election software used in North Carolina during the 2016 election with Russian hackers.

The Gentle Reader may remember that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se/Protector Kimberlin testified under oath in October, 2016, that he and his band of top-notch hackers were working with the DoJ to secure the 2016 elections. He mentioned hacking by the Russians.

If the Politico story is correct, it shows an example of TDPK’s failure to fully protect our election that year. OTOH, Hillary Clinton managed to get 78.9% of the vote in Durham County, so maybe TDPK doesn’t care.

Oh, look! TDPK has added a PayPal donate button to the site, but it turns out that it’s another example of his lack of attention to detail—it’s connected to a PayPal account that’s been closed. The NationBuilder link still takes you to a page that falsely claims that POE has 502(c)(3) tax exempt status. The organization used to have 501(c)(4) status, but that was revoked by the IRS several months ago.

One of the claims that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin made in his LOLsuits was that people who blogged about him did so in order to increase traffic on their blogs and to attract donations. Well, I write about what I think is important and about less important things that interest me. Although I operate this blog with the intention of turning a profit, some years it loses money.

OTOH, it’s pretty clear that TDPK’s online business model is about raising money. Almost all of the Kimberlin-related websites have some sort of DONATE button or link. This TKPOTD first ran five years ago today. I’ve rerun it before, and it bears rerunning again.

* * * * *

I admire Bono, and not just because he’s a good musician. I also respect the social activism that is grounded in his Christian faith.

The Dread Performer Kimberlin has taken to bad mouthing Bono over at the jtmp dot org website. (I read it so you don’t have to—even though my doing so probably doubles their legitimate web traffic.) You see, Bono wants to help feed the hungry in Africa, and he’s willing to partner with companies such as Monsanto in the process. Monsanto, of course, must be evil because they are a purveyor of GMO seeds. Bono, Brett would have us believe, is “selling out.”

Brett Kimberlin and his organizations oppose “Frankenfoods.” They would prefer to have upwards of a half-million children die each year from vitamin A deficiency rather than have golden rice available in poor countries. They would rather Africans starve than let them plant insect- or blight-resistance corn.

OTOH, poor Asian and African kids aren’t likely to hit a donate button on a JTMP or Velvet Revolution dot US webpage, whereas there may be a few anti-science moonbats who still donate.

Follow the money.

* * * * *

Most of the Kimberlin-related sites are now gone and the only one’s with working donation mechanisms are the Protect Our Elections and EuroMaidan PR websites. (The Gentle Reader may remember that Kimberlin change the name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. in 2017). It seems that TDPK hasn’t had any more success at online fundraising than he has with lawfare.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Is Justice Through Music Project still a priority for Brett Kimberlin? It’s been several months since I first encountered this warning when checking on the jtmp dot org website——and I got again while checkin on the site yesterday evening. This sort of warning doesn’t necessarily mean that a site has something nefarious planted on it. It can be triggered by the presence of old code that isn’t compatible with modern https everywhere browsers. The jtmp dot org site hasn’t been updated for almost a year, so the root problem may be lack of proper maintenance.

OTOH, it can’t be that The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has been busy protecting elections because protectourelections dot org has been updated since mid August. He must be up to something else.

Hmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se/Protector Kimberlin was so sure that he would be successful protecting our 2016 presidential election that he filed a RICO LOLsuit against an group of defendants at the end of October, 2016. Breitbart Holdings was named as the lead defendant in the suit, and Steve Bannon was one of the codefendants. A few days later, TDPK had failed protect our election, and he then was in a LOLsuit with someone who was about to become a key presidential advisor.

The “evidence” that Kimberlin sought to use in the RICO 3 LOLsuit had been obtained as discovery in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit, and it was subject to a protective order issued by Judge Hazel forbidding it’s being disclosed to third parties or used in any other case. Three years ago today, I published this post titled Breitbart Pushes Back.

* * * * *

This has appeared on PACER—

Hmmmm.

* * * * *

Because I had been sucked into the Frey discovery process, I was also bound by the protective order relating to that case. When Kimberlin began trying to use discovery from Frey in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit in state court, I informed Judge Hazel. He directed me to inform the state court of his order. Judge Hecker, who was presiding in the state case, took the position that he wouldn’t directly enforce the federal court order, but that he reminded Kimberlin of the possible consequences of violating the order, Kimberlin got the message and stopped trying to use the Frey discovery in my case.

Oh, and the RICO 3 LOLsuit wound up being dismissed because the use of the Frey discovery violated the protective order.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Back in October, 2016, Brett Kimberlin testified under oath that he and his associates were working with the Department of Justice on election cyber security. At the end of that month, he filed a third RICO LOLsuit against Breitbart Holdings and a long list of codefendants. On of those codefendants was Steve Bannon.

About a week after filing that LOLsuit, the election that Brett Kimberlin and his associates were trying to protect occurred. Three years ago, Hogewash! ran this Summary of Election Results that showcased the failure of The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin’s electoral efforts.

In the top race—wizard-of-oz-wicked-witch-of-east-leg-lamp_blog

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s timing wasn’t any better than his election security work. Rather than suing someone associated with the losing side, he had sued a member of the incoming President’s staff.

I should have bought more popcorn futures.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


While testifying under oath in October, 2016, Brett Kimberlin stated that he was “working with the Department of Justice right now to protect the, this coming election.” He said that the work related to “hacking and electronic cyber hacking.” He also claimed that he was working with members of Congress.

The TKPOTD for 1 November, 2016, dealt with Kimberlin’s efforts to protect that fall’s election.

* * * * *

In yesterday’s TKPOTD I mentioned that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin says that he’s busy right now with work for his not-for-profits related to the election. Here’s the sort of interest he’s stirring up on the Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution.US websites.jtmp20161031vrus20161031Neither website seems to be generating any comments. Nada, Zilch. Bupkis. On the one hand, it’s good to see that TDPK is having the sort of Real World influence he should. On the other hand, that’s even more satisfying when put into the following perspective: During the past week, the AYPWIP? posts here at Hogewash! have generated 16 comments.

Narf!

Clearly, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin failed to properly protect that election because the wrong candidate was elected in spite of foreign influence.

One of the Kimberlin-related websites that has recently disappeared was manafortwatch dot org. The site had an … um … interesting history. Here are the first few lines of the domain’s WHOIS data:

Domain Name: MANAFORTWATCH.ORG
Registry Domain ID: D189396510-LROR
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.godaddy.com
Registrar URL: http://www.whois.godaddy.com
Updated Date: 2019-08-30T08:10:23Z
Creation Date: 2016-07-19T01:06:01Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2020-07-19T01:06:01Z

… and here is the site’s hosting history:

The domain was registered through GoDaddy on 10 August, 2016 and initially hosted on a GoDaddy server (50.63.202.34), but two days later, it was moved to the Fintel Associates server (209.188.0.218) that hosts the Justice Through Music Project and Protect Our Elections websites. On 10 August, 2019, the site was moved back to a GoDaddy server (184.168.221.90), and on 1 September, it was taken down well before the expiration date for the registration.

Here’s the interesting thing about that timeline. The domain was registered one week before the New York Times broke the story of the Ukrainian ledger detailing payments made to Manafort. It seems that someone with insider knowledge of the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau’s claims about the ledger was involved in registering the domain.

We know that Alexandra Chalupa was working through her Ukrainian contacts to dig up dirt on Manafort. We know that she was working with Kimberlin through that time period.

Hmmmmm.

Yesterday’s TKPOTD took note of the IRS revoking the 501(c)(4) tax exemptions status from Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. That organization was originally called VelvetRevolution.US when it was founded by Brad Friedman and Brett Kimberlin. The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin changed the corporate name in 2017. It now appears that any profit made by the corporation will be taxable. Of course, because the exemption status was 501(c)(4), donations to the POE/EMPR were never tax deductible by a donor.

However, that has never stopped Kimberlin from misrepresenting the corporations status. Here’s the Donate page that was posted at protectourelections dot org as of 8:30 pm ET last night.

Let me zoom in on the deductibility claim.POE/EMPR never was a 501(c)(3), and it’s now lost its (c)(4) status. One of the lies that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin told about me in the unsuccessful LOLsuits he filed against me was that I had defrauded my readers by seeking donations under false pretenses.

I am not amused.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


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 …”

This post about a bit of lawfare in which Brett Kimberlin, as The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin, is involved. However, he’s not a named party in the case.

At the end of January, 2014, a couple of progressive organizations and a pair of individuals filed a LOLsuit in the U.S. District Court in D.C. against the Federal Elections Commission because it failed to pursue an investigation of Crossroads Grassroots Political Strategies. The individual plaintiffs in the case were Craig Holman and Kevin Zeese. The organizational plaintiffs were Public Citizen and Protect Our Elections.org. The Gentle Readers who have been following this blog for some time should find a couple of those names familiar. This is from the Complaint filed in the case—

11. Plaintiff ProtectOurElections.org is a national collaboration of grassroots organizations that work together to provide oversight of elections and to advocate for campaign finance reform. they rely on political committees’ public disclosure reports to evaluate the influence of money in politics.

13. Plaintiff Kevin Zeese, Esq., is an attorney with ProtectOurElections.org and is committed to reforming politics and elections. He relies on information about campaign-related spending to evaluate different speakers and messages and to monitor the impact of large expenditures on officeholders and public policy. He is also a United States citizen and a registered voter in Maryland. As a registered voter, Mr. Zeese is entitled to reviver the information that the FECA requires political committees and others to disclose to the public, and his informed exercise of the vote is impaired when such information is unavailable,

The case slogged along until motions for summary judgment were filed. A hearing on those motions was held in August, 2016. And then nothing happened. You see, there was another case going forward against the FEC in the same court that had very similar facts and issues. That case, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington v. FEC, went to trial in 2017 and was appealed. The Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit decided that case in the FEC’s favor in 2018. IANAL, but it seems to me that the case law now favors granting summary judgment in the FEC’s favor in the Public Citizen, et al. case as well.

The FEC has filed a supplemental brief informing the District Court of the Court of Appeals ruling, but nothing has been entered on the case docket for almost a year.

It looks as if The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin will have to find another means “to provide oversight” of our elections.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


In many ways, we are known by the company we keep. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with some of the people and organizations The Dread Deadbeat Protestor/Protector Kimberlin was working with.

* * * * *

One of the subsidiary operations of Brett Kimberlin’s 501(c)4 Velvet Revolution US is called Chamber Watch. On Chamber Watch’s Action Items web page (No, I won’t link to it.), there’s a description of an alliance of organizations and individuals engaged in attacking the U. S. Chamber of Commerce.

Velvet Revolution and it [sic] staff, including journalist Brad Friedman, along with SEIU, reporter Glenn Greenwald, Change to Win and ChamberWatch

That’s an interesting bunch.

Brad Friedman is the co-founder with Brett Kimberlin of VRUS. He is the left coast anchor of the group and a “respectable” public face.

The SEIU is the Service Employees International Union which enhanced its reputation for violence by sending purple-shirted thugs to confront tea party rallies. SEIU founder Wade Rathke was a cofounder of ACORN.

Glenn Greenwald? Yep, that Glenn Greenwald. The one who writes for The Guardian.

Change to Win is a coalition of labor unions formed in 2005 as an alternative to the AFL-CIO; it consists The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Service Employees International Union, United Farm Workers, and United Food and Commercial Workers. All of these unions have a history of violence and/or corruption.

Thugs partnering with left-wing “journalists” to attack big business, but to what purpose? Did I mention that there’s a Donate button on each webpage?

* * * * *

More recently, TDPK has been focusing on election integrity. That change in interest may have some connection the The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin losing a couple of LOLsuits related to his tiff with the Chamber of Commerce. Indeed, his work during the 2016 elections with Ukrainian interests connected to the Democrats’ National Committee appear to have been so … um … rewarding that in 2017 he changed the corporate name of VelvetRevolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. (empr dot media is an English-language Ukrainian news site hosted on the same server as the now-seemingly-abandoned Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.)

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD for four years ago today took a look at the featured posts at the old velvetrevolution dot us website and noted that not a single one had any comments. Yesterday, I took a look at the website for the new, improved Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. (protectourelections dot org). None of the post dated this year had any comments. I didn’t bother to go back any further.

I also took a look at the site’s DONATE page. It still claims that the organization is a 501(c)(3) charity and that donations are tax exempt. I also downloaded the most recent IRS Exempt Organizations Business Master File Extract for Maryland-based organizations. It lists Protect Our Elections/EMPR as a 501(c)(4) entity. According to the IRS:

Contribu­tions to civic leagues or other section 501(c)(4) organizations generally are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. They may be deductible as trade or business expenses, if ordinary and necessary in the conduct of the taxpayer’s business.  How­ever, see Nondeductible Lobbying and Political Expenditures  for more information.  Also, the organization may be required to disclose that contributions are not deductible when it solicits contributions.

Of course, it is possible that the work Kimberlin is doing for whoever is providing the funding for POE/EMPR really is a business expense for that person or persons.

Hmmmmmm.

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has changed the name of his 504(c)(4) operations from VelvetRevolution.US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. Yesterday evening, I spent some time on the protectourelections dot org and empr dot media websites. (The EMPR site is an english language Ukrainian news site.) Neither site had any news about possible Ukrainian collusion with the Democrats during the 2016 election or the recent Joe Biden/Ukraine connection stories.

Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


A least a couple of the Democrats running for President have expressed support for allowing felons, including those still serving time, to vote. However, Pete Buttigieg, when asked about allowing terrorists to vote, simply said, “No.”

Protect Our Elections/EMPR was unavailable for comment.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It sorta/kinda looks as if Brett Kimberlin’s Protect Our Elections/EMPR 504(c) not-for-profit has dropped the ball. Recent news stories indicate there there may have been a significant effort by Ukrainian interest to interfere with the 2016 U. S. presidential election, but there doesn’t seem to be any mention of the developing story at either the protectourelections dot org or empr dot media websites. This screen cap was taken just after 8 pm ET Monday night.Curiouser and curiouser.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


A commenter to yesterday’s TKPOTD brought up the fact that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to stick his nose into the Blankenship mine disaster criminal case. Of course, he was unsuccessful and wasn’t able to bootstrap that effort into some sort of useful something or other for his RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit. Today, we look back to the TKPOTD from four yeas ago which dealt with another failed attempt by The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin to meddle in someone else’s legal matter.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin has tried to make a name for himself fighting for clean elections through Velvet Revolution US, the 501(c)4 he cofounded with moonbat broadcaster Brad Friedman.

King Lincoln Bronzeville Neighborhood Ass’n v. Blackwell was a voter fraud case in Ohio that accused Republican Secretary of State Ken Blackwell of conspiring to deprive Ohioans of their right to vote for Democrats. At one point, Kimberlin stuck his nose into the proceeding.

The Blackwell case wound up being dismissed.

Is anyone surprised that Velvet Revolution US has never found any election irregularities implicating Democrats, not even in Chicago?

* * * * *

And so Kimberlin failed in that effort at election protection, but not as spectacularly as he failed in his 2016 effort to protect us from Donald Trump. In 2017, he changed the Velvet Revolution US corporate name to Protect Our Elections/EMPR. <sarc>Maybe that will help improve his performance.</sarc>

It was registered on 4 June, 2018, and is hosted on the same server as jtmp dot org, protectorelections dot org, and several other Kimberlin-related web sites.That’s the whole website so far. I guess The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin was too busy protecting elections and doing other important stuff to even put a working DONATE button on the site.

Yesterday evening, the peace of my Twitter feed was disturbed by tweets about a Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post from 2013 peddling a story that Brett Kimberlin had said he had hired Ali Akbar to work as an undercover mole inside of the conservative political movement. The article (which now carries Matt Osborne’s byline) quotes a spokesman for Velvet Revolution (now known as Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.) as saying—

“We hired him in 2007, as soon as we heard of his van break-in,” said a spokesman for Velvet Revolution. “Our alert Democratic staffers identified him for exploitation as a fake conservative political activist. By insinuating himself closely with Republicans at all levels, we could one one day pull the mask off and do tremendous damage.

“That day has come,” the spokesman said before taking questions. The call, which took place on Skype, lasted twelve minutes and took place under condition of pseudonymity.

Under the code name ‘Operation Shebbab,’ Akbar would promise intense social media coverage and then fail to deliver it, stepping upwards with every failure by throwing fellow Republicans under the bus. The plot has worked far better than its conspirators had dared to hope.

“Setting up the fake nonprofits, well that was an important part of the plan,” Bob the Spokesman explained. “Brett Kimberlin is too busy running actual nonprofit organizations to bother running fake ones.”

That’s the same Ali Akbar who Brett Kimberlin sued less than six months later for “defamation, malicious prosecution, harassment, stalking, conspiracy, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.” Kimberlin lost that LOLsuit and two others he tried to bring against Ali. Of course, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s claims in his LOLsuits contradict the story being spun by Bob the Spokesman in the BU post, so at least one of the tales isn’t true. My money would be on all of them being lies.

Does Team Kimberlin really want to stick with a claim that Brett Kimberlin hired someone to engage in a form of election interference? Really?

Team Kimberlin’s flailing around is becoming downright … I was gonna type “pitiful,” but I don’t pity the fools. My reaction is in line with Stacy McCain’s.The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the scams that VelvetRevolution.US, the 501(c)4(4) not-for-profit Brett Kimberlin runs which is now known as Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc., used to run involved offering a $100,000 reward for evidence of election fraud and to seek donations to fund said reward. Here’s an example from the 2016 election season.

No such reward has been offered for information about elections fraud occurring during the 2017 Alabama special senatorial election or the 2018 elections. I find that interesting when considered along with the admission by Brett Kimberlin’s associate Matt Osborne that he was a part of the Alabama Dry fake Russian bot operation.

POE/EMPR is still has a $!00k reward posted, but it isn’t election related. The latest reward is offered for information that Brett Kavanaugh committed perjury during his confirmation hearings. I suppose that has the advantage of being a reward that will never have to be paid but that still might stir up a donation or two—and it doesn’t call attention to what Kimberlin’s associates have been doing under cover.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Matt Osborne has wandered back into the news. He’s been quoted in the NYT as admitting to being a part of the Dry Alabama fake Russian bot scam that tried influence the recent special senatorial election in Alabama. Of course, Osborne is no stranger to spinning false narratives given his work as a writer and editor with Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. This post from five years ago today called Silly Question Du Jour dealt with one Osborne’s false stories back when he was hiding behind the nom de cyber of Xenophon.

* * * * *

Xenophon (the Troll) has another of his wacko posts up at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) in which he tries to connect me to various nefarious activities on the Interwebz.BU20140109Perhaps I should. By whom?

So far as I know, the only person who would be in a position to ask me questions in court would be The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. (Bill Schmalfeldt might get a crack at me if I’m called as a witness at one of his trials. However, given the evidence that could be introduced from the record of the peace order extension hearing, my testimony might not be required. But I digress.) Why would Kimberlin think that questions about alleged interactions between me and Matt Osborne, William Ferguson, or Alex Brant-Zawadzki might be germane to either the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit or the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness? Is TDPK teamed with these folks? If he is, that would go toward proving the existence of Team Kimberlin, but, since TDPK’s suits claim that merely saying that Team Kimberlin exists defames him, he might not want to go down that path.

I have no knowledge of any of the stuff Xenophon has written about, but if TDPK wants to question me about the material in that post, I’d be happy to take his questions on the witness stand under oath. He would be opening the door to very interesting lines of inquiry by the defendants. He could expect some interesting related questions when he testifies in the RICO suit. (He isn’t banned from testifying in federal court.)

Oh, one more thing … I’ve never claimed to be a dramaturge, but I am a trained voice actor, and I am familiar with The Wasps. Thus, I’ll leave Xenophon with these words from Xanthias:

Your dream stinks vilely of old leather.

* * * * *

There still has been no comment from Osborne’s buddies at Protect Our Elections/EMPR concerning election integrity issues and the Dry Alabama scam. However, a zombie commenter to one of yesterday’s posts has shared this link to a Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post of an article Osborne published on LinkedIn. (The Gentle Reader may remember that the funding for the Dry Alabama scam came from the founder of LinkedIn.). Of course one can’t say for sure, but the reposting of that article certainly gives the appearance of endorsement of Osborne and his election interference by Team Kimberlin.

UPDATE—Oh, I see Mr. DownTwinkles is back. These posts must be getting under someone’s skin.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin had a busy 2016. Here are some interesting happenings from that year—

22 April, 2016: Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al. LOLsuit filed seeking a determination that “Defendants Mitch McConnell and Charles Grassley have waived the Senate’s right to advise and consent with regard to the nomination of Merrick Garland.” Paragraph 1 states that “Plaintiff’s work includes seeking redress in federal court for violations of his civil and statutory rights.”

28 August, 2016: manafortwatch dot org website becomes active.

23 September, 2016: Last post made to manafortwatch dot org.

28 September, 2016: Last Russian hacking story prior to the 2016 election posted at protectourelections dot org.

13 October, 2016: Brett Kimberlin testifies under oath: “Right now, I’m working with Congress members on legislation to protect the vote. I’m working with the Department of Justice right now to protect the, this coming election. There’s been a lot of information about hacking by Russians.”

31 October, 2016: Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. filed, a sealed LOLsuit seeking damages under 42 U.S.C. 1983, a civil rights statute. Other defendants included Stephen Bannon, the estate of Jerry Barnes, and Kenneth Trigoning. Barnes had been the State’s Attorney for Carroll County Maryland. Trigonning is a retired Carroll County Sheriff.

8 November, 2016: Hillary Clinton loses the election.

17 November, 2016: $100,000 “reward” offered by the protectourelections dot org website for evidence of election fraud.

Not everything proceeded as he had foreseen.
