Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s about the Benjamins. The whole point of the The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s web sites is their DONATE buttons. I wrote about one of his more egregious sites in the TKPOTD three years ago today.

* * * * *

This fund raising website run by The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin seems to demonstrate that he has neither a sense of shame nor a sense of irony.StopDomesticTerrorismThe site has no mention of the Speedway Bombings.

The DeLong family was unavailable for comment.

The site was still up as of yesterday.

The 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 TKPOTD from five years ago today takes note of an interesting bit of information in the Justice Through Music Project corporate charter.

* * * * *

In corporate law the term ultra vires refers to acts attempted by a corporation that are beyond the scope of powers granted by the corporation’s articles of incorporation, in the laws authorizing a corporation’s formation, or similar founding documents. Acts attempted by a corporation that are beyond the scope of its charter are void or voidable.

Here’s the purpose of Justice Through Music Project according to its Articles of Incorporation.jtmp_purpose

to shed light on some of the injustices in the world with the power of music

Here’s what JTMP says is one of its purposes is on its website.

We also register people to vote using cutting edge technology in order to effect change through the ballot box.

Registering voters may be a worthy activity, but how does registering voters shed light on some of the injustices in the world with the power of music? Is JTMP engaging in activities not permitted by it’s corporate charter?

Carelessness can result in consequences. So can purposeful misbehavior.

It’s really beginning to look as if The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has given up on Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread. It’s been seven weeks since any fresh content was added.Of course, BU isn’t his most neglected site. Some have been left to rot for years, for example, issaoversight dot org. Here’s the most recent item I could find on that site:Zooming in on the date shows that the page is almost three years old.

Several of the links on the site are broken and the Follow Us On Facebook button is dead, but the DONATE button works.

Congressman Issa is retiring at the end of this term. I wonder if TDPK will bother to take the site down.

And another Kimberlin website has bitten the dust. The mccutcheonwatch dot org domain’s registration has expired. It must not have had enough hits on the Donate button to justify keeping it.

In other Kimberlin website news … protectourelections dot com has moved to another server and now forwards connections to the protectourelections dot org website. The dot org website has been updated. Pressing its Donate button takes the viewer to this page hosted by nationbuilder dot com.A check of the State of Maryland’s corporations database shows that Protect Our Elections Inc. is a trade name owned by Justice Through Music Project registered at an address in Bethesda, Maryland. The IRS website lists JTMP as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. However, the IRS does not list Protect Our Elections as an exempt organization. The Gentle Reader should consult his tax advisor prior to claiming any deductions to POE.

As part of a continuing search to find a relevant cause that would motivate donors, Justice Through Music Project got involved with the anti-fracking movement. the TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with part of that effort.

* * * * *

Justice Through Music Project has posted another music video on YouTube. It’s a sorta/kinda cover of John Prine’s Paradise. It’s an anti-natural-resource-extraction propaganda piece aimed at the Keystone XL pipeline. In fact, the band calls themselves the Keystone Pipeline Kops instead of Op-Critical.

Now, if I were Brett Kimberlin, I would avoid having anything to do with any song from John Prine’s first album lest I remind listeners of other songs from that album that might have unfortunate references to drug dealing, porn, etc.

Sam Stone: “There’s a hole in daddy’s arm where all the money goes.”

Your Flag Decal Won’t Get You Into Heaven Anymore: “While digesting Reader’s Digest in the back of a dirty book store …”

Illegal Smile: “Won’t you please tell the man I didn’t kill anyone …”

Just sayin’ …

The failure of The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin’s music career sounds like a real Dear Abby.

One of the claims that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has made in his LOLsuits is that all of us bloggers writing truthful things about him have hurt his ability to write and produce his songs and music videos. As this post from five years ago demonstrates, some folks might view a reduction in The Dread Deadbeat Performers output to be a good thing.

Brett Kimberlin fancies himself a great musician. (H/T, Kimberlin Unmaksked)

The term “delusions of adequacy” comes to mind.

UPDATE—Here’s a statement made by a Justice Through Music Project spokesman (not Brett Kimberlin) about the time this video was released:

We want videos that have staying power, that make a cultural statement, and that have an emotional component to them so that they will influence youth. Politicians spend hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars on ads to influence middle class America, and they basically ignore young people totally; and we feel like the music videos are like the cultural statements or the ads for young people, so we hope to get them involved and influence them to make the right decision in November.

Uh, huh.

Kimberlin and Op-Critical really ought to do a cover of I Fought the Law (And the Law Won).
