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.)
