It’s been 1,267 days since anything new has been posted at the alleged news site breitbartunmasked dot com.
Brett Kimberlin created the Breitbart Unmasked website in 2012, and used it to attack his perceived enemies. Here’s an example of a false post from six years ago today.The Gentle Reader will note that the second paragraph in the BU post mentions some embedded audio that is no longer in the post. There were two problems with that audio. The first was that it had been edited to create a false record. The second was that it’s a violation Maryland Court Rules to publish courtroom audio recordings.
Publication of printed transcripts are OK, and when I made the printed record available, the embedded audio was taken down.
Breitbart Unmasked. It’s my prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, yeah. Smears, too!
In February, 2012, Brett Kimberlin started the breitbartunmasked dot com website. It operated on-and-off until December, 2018, principally under the editorships of Matt Osborne and Bill Schmalfeldt. The site was first hosted in The Netherlands, but it was moved onshore and its hosting consolidated with over two dozen Kimberlin-related sites after a year or so. It moved back offshore after Bill Schmalfeldt posted some content from Hogewash! without permission, fleeing to avoid the consequences of a DMCA takedown notice.
The site is still wasting bandwidth on the Internet, but has had no new content for over three years. It’s been poorly maintained, and much of the original material is gone.
But the site has been well backed up all along for use as evidence when necessary. For example, here’s a screenshot from a post from seven years ago today that was a clumsy attempt to smear Aaron Walker. The contents of the post are utter rubbish.While the post was still available at the BU website as of 10:16 ET Tuesday evening, it screenshot is from the post’s html file on one of the existing offline backups.
I doubt that Team Kimberlin is aware of the evidence the left lying about.
Some things do not have a statute of limitations.
Even though Brett Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc., he’s kept the velvetrevolution dot us domain register active and a not-well-maintained website alive.Here’s an example of a post that passes for “latest news.”Now if I were someone who bragged about being involved in the effort to “secure” the 2016 election and had connections to … well, let’s just say given the way the Russia Collusion Hoax investigation is going, I probably wouldn’t hav a post like that up on my website.
OTOH, that post has been up for over five years, and it still has no comments, so maybe keeping it up isn’t all that risky.
There’s good news, and there’s bad news.
The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin paid to renew the domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com before the registrar’s grace period ran out, and the site is now back online.
The Gentle Reader may decide in which category to place this news.
Back in 2017, Brett Kimberlin changed the name of his VelvetRevolution.US not-for-profit to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. While the protectourelections dot org website has been quiet for a couple of years, the empr dot media website was active until recently. It hasn’t had any news to report from Ukraine since the 20th.However, the EuroMaidanPR Twitter account has remained active.
This is from Justice Through Music Project’s corporate charter—Here’s their latest effort at shining some light (H/T, Tz)—

While the video has been posted at YouTube, there’s nothing related to it at jtmp dot org.
Now that Breitbart Unmasked has shuffled off this mortal coil, perhaps The Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin will put some effort into cleaning up some of his other websites.
Consider empr dot media. While it occasionally gets a new story lifted from some other source, its teaser crawl at the top of the home page really needs to be updated.
The domain registration expired on 13 February, 2022. The site was just shy of ten years old. It had been in a persistent vegetative state since December, 2018. It is survived by jtmp dot org, protecteourelections dot org, velevetrevolution dot us, greencasamaryland dot org, itstime2020 dot org, and empr dot media.
The domain registration for breitbartunmasked dot com has been allowed to expire. When I checked the registration at 02:20 UTC on 14 February (9:20pm ET yesterday evening), the ICCAN Lookup returned the following—
Sunday evening, I was unable to access the site on the offshore server that hosts most to the other Kimberlin-related domains. Namecheap, the registrar for the domain, appears to have parked the domain on an Amazon Web Services server in the U.S.
The TKPOTD for the 20th was about a post at the empr dot media site by Alexandra Chalupa. That website appears to be operated by Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc., an entity run by Brett Kimberlin which has had its 501(c)4 status revoked by the IRS. Ms. Chalupa was involved with Ukrainian-related aspects of the Russia Collusion Hoax. Her post at the EMPR website, which had be recycled from her Substack page, contained the patently false claim that “Putin planted and managed in the White House for four years – Donald J. Trump.”
Her post has received no comments on Substack, but it has snagged one at EMPR.
EMPR’s coverage of Trump was never friendly or even neutral. I wonder if they think Biden is really better for Ukraine.
Once in a while, the Kimberlin EMPR Media website gets a sharp bump in traffic when I take a look at it. Last night, I read a recent post in the “Analytics” section a claim that “Putin planted and managed in the White House for four years – Donald J. Trump.” The post was written by Alexandra Chalupa who also posted it at Substack on 8 December, well after the recent indictments of Michael Sussmann and Igor Danchenko, but Ms. Chalupa is still trying to peddle the lies behind the Russia Collusion Hoax. In 2016, she was involved in Democrat activities related to the Russia/Ukraine/Trump spin campaign. She was later involved at least tangentially in Michale Avenatti’s abortive presidential campaign feelers.
On her Substack page she describes herself as “[b]lamed by the Kremlin and GOP for the Russia probe; falsely accused of working with Ukraine to “sabotage” Trump while Trump worked with Putin to sabotage the U.S.”
I don’t believe those accusations are false.
Every time Brett Kimberlin filed one of his LOLsuits, his PR flacks at Breitbart Unmasked would loudly predict the direst of dire direness was about to befall the defendants. And then, as the facts surrounding the case would surface, a certain stillness would come over BU. Eight years ago today, I took note that It Sure Is Quiet Over There.
* * * * *
It’s been over a week since The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin received my motion to dismiss in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO lawsuit, but nothing has appeared on his website attempting to debunk any of the points made in my motion. Given the ballyhoo at Breitbart Unmasked when the state and federal suits were filed, I’m a bit surprised.
Their expert analysis (stop laughing) of the case showed that the Brett Kimberlin had all the defendants dead to rights. According to Breitbart Unmasked, the RICO suit was supposed to result the defendants becoming the targets of an FBI investigation, but, thus far, the only federal agencies that have contacted me since the suit was filed have been NASA, asking a technical question about some equipment I designed, and the Social Security Administration, informing me of a 1.5% cost-of-living increase.
Perhaps, TDPK has been busy with all the paperwork due by the first week of the new year. He had a bunch due in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case at the end of last week. There’s a deadline in the RICO case coming up between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and several deadlines during the first week of 2014.
Still, Xenophon or Roger S should have written something by now—unless, of course, they can’t find anything to attack.
* * * * *
Of course, Breitbart Unmasked is still up wasting bandwidth on the Internet, but it hasn’t had any new material posted for over three years.
As the TKPOTD for seven years ago demonstrates, Brett Kimberlin’s Internet presence can be described as Orwellian in more than one sense.
* * * * *
A visit to Brett Kimberlin’s anti-GMO-food website (citizensagainstgmo.com) reminded me of a 1937 quote from George Orwell:
One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words “Socialism” and “Communism” draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, “Nature Cure” quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.
In America these days, it’s “Progressives” that fit Orwell’s bill.
Of course, Brett’s “legitimate” businesses that he used to launder his drug money were a health food store and restaurant, so he has been associated with moonbat cuisine for decades. Still, I wonder if the site generates many clicks on the Donate button? Given that it hasn’t be updated for about a year-and-a-half, probably not.
BTW, I am pleased to announce that the Orville Redenbacher popcorn offered by Hogewash! via Amazon does contain GMO corn.
* * * * *
citizensagainstgmo dot com must not have been a moneymaker. The domain registration has been allowed to expire.
It’s been three years since anything new was posted at
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.It’s still sitting on a server wasting bandwidth.
Team Kimberlin often projects their own motivations and behaviors on to others. For example, they claim that others are victimizing them with “false narratives” when it is they who tell lies and engage in forgery and perjury.
Speaking of false narratives, here’s one that Bill Schmalfeldt published during one of his turns as editor of Breitbart Unmasked four years ago today.
On the off chance that someone might actually give a hoot, I’m posting this screenshot to show the new look of the jtmp dot org website.Someone changed the site theme from oldpaper to asteroid and did a minor bit of clean up. Otherwise, it’s pretty much the same waste of bandwidth.
One of the ways Team Kimberlin demonstrated their utter impotence was by the plethora of empty threats they made against me and my coverage of their activities. These posts from eight years ago cite a trifecta of examples. The first came from Bill Schmalfeldt, and my response was “Go Ahead, Make My Day.”
* * * * *
* * * * *
When it turned out that the Cabin Boy™ got fired that very day and he wouldn’t have a venue for his exposé, I said, “I’ll Just Have to Wait.”
* * * * *
It does look like I won’t be seeing that exposé about me in The Examiner any time soon.
The Cabin Boy seems upset with the day’s events. It may be interesting to see how he acts out.UPDATE—Stacy McCain weighs in here. Money quote:
Bad things are going to happen to us — Bill says he knows this — but he is “not responsible” for it? Of course, there are those who believe Bill Schmalfeldt is quite literally insane, so in a sense, he isn’t responsible. But I don’t think he meant it that way.
Read the whole thing.
* * * * *
And finally, The
Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin issued his own hollow threat, to which I also replied, “Go Ahead, Make My Day.”
* * * * *
Brietbart Unmasked, who was put on notice to stop contacting me on 15 February, and who continues to do so in violation of Md. Criminal Laws §3-803 and §3-805, sent me the following tweet this evening:
Fine. Charge me. I will have a Sixth Amendment right to confront my accuser. That means that if @BreitbartUnmask won’t reveal his identity, the charges get dropped, and if he does reveal his identity, he can rest assured that I will file harassment charges for his continued contact with me.
Perhaps he shouldn’t be getting his legal advice from Acme.
* * * * *
I spent some time yesterday evening nosing around in the older posts at the Kimberlin-related English-language Ukrainian news site empr dot media.* When I did a search on the term “Vindman,” I got a null response.
That seemed odd. Alexander Vindman was a born and Ukraine and was a key individual in one of the biggest international news stories of 2020, a story that involved the Presidents of both the U.S. and Ukraine. You’d think his name would have come up in the site’s coverage of the story. Vindman’s name is missing because any mention of the second Trump impeachment is missing.
I also couldn’t find any mention of Hunter Biden.
But there are several puff pieces about Joe Biden, including a post promoting a song called Dancing Hearts which celebrates the election of Joe Biden and Kamal Harris. The singer is Kelsie Kimberlin.
Dread Deadbeat Protector/Publisher Kimberlin change the legal name of his Velvet Revolution US not-for-profit to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. in 2017. The IRS has since revoked the organization’s tax empt status, and it is no longer in good standing with the State of Maryland.
For all their grandiose planning and “clever” narratives, Team Kimberlin fails because they never seem to be able to understand the likely consequences of their actions of implication of what they’re saying. This I’m Not Making This Up, You Know from seven years ago today pointed out an unforced error.
* * * * *
Bunny Boy has a headline story over at Breitbart Unmasked about a young criminal being caught with IEDs. (No, I won’t link to it.)
Apparently, Brett Kimberlin was unavailable for comment.
* * * * *
One of the bogus claims Brett Kimberlin has made against those of us who have engaged in truthful reporting about him is that our reporting is harassment. In fact, Kimberlin and his enablers are the ones who have been the harassers, and their lamest form of harassment has been their comments here at Hogewash!. This post about Anonymity and Cowardice ran eight years ago today.
* * * * *
The use of the term “anonymous coward” to describe someone who posts a comment without using his real name or a known nom de cyber goes back to the early days of Usenet. If Samuel Clemens were to comment here as Mark Twain, he would not be considered an anonymous coward. (Note: Someone using a known nom de cyber (i.e., @BreitbartUnmask) may be a coward but doesn’t really meet the definition of anonymous coward.)
OTOH, these “commenters” are clearly anonymous cowards:The abusive, often obscene, content of the comments submitted under these names compounds the cowardice of the sender(s). He (they) doesn’t (don’t) have the courage to speak openly.
I’ve received around a hundred such “comments” over the past few months. I’ve posted a few of them. Most have been so juvenile that my reaction has been to shake my head and file them away. Some, however, have contained seriously perverted messages that raise concerns about the stability of the sender. They have caused my family to take some additional measures to assure our safety.
There are some really sick weirdo trolls on the Internet.
* * * * *
For the most part, the Kimberlin-related websites such as Breitbart Unmasked never had a problem with abusive comment because the never generated enough traffic to attract commenters.
The TKPOTD for eight years ago today took a look at Team Kimberlin attempt to have an effective web presence.
* * * * *
The Gentle Reader may draw his own conclusions as to what connections might exist between these domains and their various owners.
* * * * *
The Justice Through Music Project web site and Breitbart Unmasked haven’t had any new material for over two years. Velvet Revolution US has had its name changed to Protect Our Elections/EMPR. Bits of the old VRUS site still lurk on the web, but much of the Protect Our Elections site has been memory-holed. The EuroMaidan PR site continues to limp along. AFAICT, the rest of the sites are defunct.
At one time or another, Brett Kimberlin has had as many as two dozen or more websites online. One of the results of this failed lawfare against bloggers was the devastation of The
Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s web presence. The TKPOTD for three years ago to day took a look at deterioration of the website for Kimberlin’s flagship not-for-profit Justice Through Music Project.
* * * * *
Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin isn’t very good at keeping things up to date. For example, the following image is for a recommended link on the Justice Through Music Project website’s home page:
Free Bradley Manning? Uh, he’s been out of jail for quite awhile now and has run (unsuccessfully) for the Democrat’s nomination for the U. S. Senate from Maryland this year.
The JTMP website also has links to several defunct webpages. Some return 404s. Some haven’t been updated in years.
How can a site with so little traffic and so little relevant connection to the rest of the web generate enough hits on the DONATE button to be worth keeping up? ‘Tis a puzzlement.
* * * * *
The deadnaming of Bradley Manning shows how little attention was being paid to the site’s upkeep in 2018. Since then, the site has been moved to the same offshore server that hosts brietbartunmasked dot com and almost all of the other Kimberlin-related sites that still survive.
When I scanned jtmp dot org yesterday evening, I received 38,936 errors, mostly 404—Not Found. The Home page is broken.Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has, like almost everything he’s touched, been a failure in the long run.
Brett Kimberlin’s PR outlet Breitbart Unmasked told some truly outrageous lies attempting to flack for its publisher, but the bio on his personal website was completely disconnected from reality. The TKPOTD for eight years ago dealt with one of the most stupid.
* * * * *
There are some things that are so far out in the ozone that you couldn’t make ’em up if you tried. I found this in Brett Kimberlin’s bio on his personal website (No, I won’t link to it.).
Brett has also been passionate about protecting the rights of minorities by exposing bigots, hate groups, and bullies.
Exposing bigots, hate groups, and bullies, huh?
I don’t know about you, but I class anti-Semites as bigots. Brett Kimberlin’s anti-Semitism is well documented.
And would you say that an organization (Koch Watch, NIWLTI) that promotes hatred based on a greedy desire to appropriate the fruits of the success of others might be a hate group?
Is Brett Kimberlin trying to expose himself?
