There’s a post over at the Justice Through Music Project website titled JTMP Attends DC National Cannabis Festival. The post has a picture of the gathering in front of the band shell, and the crowd is so small I wonder if Op-Critical was playing.
After a couple of three month extensions, Justice Through Music Project finally filed its IRS Form 990 last November. It has recently become publicly available.
IIRC, Kimberlin has been claiming that his adverse publicity has been hurting donations to his not-for-profits. 595,230 > 380,287.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is having to spend too much time with his LOLsuits to be able to properly manage his not-for-profits. Take the Justice Through Music Project website for example.The most recent post was put up on 28 December, over 10 days ago. Now wonder the site doesn’t have any significant traffic. Here’s the site’s Alexa rating.Alex only rates the top 20,000,000 sites.
Brett Kimberlin chose to engage in shutuppery via frivolous and vexatious lawsuits. He’s bitten off more than he can chew. Most obviously, because the publicity surrounding his LOLsuits has put what he wanted to hide right in the middle of a bright spotlight, but, more important, the pushback he has encountered has taken so much of his time and energy that he’s losing what little following and influence he had built up. Shutuppery rarely gets control of the narrative on the Internet.
In early September, I posted the Alexa ratings for several website. Here’s how those sites and a few others were doing at the end of October (i.e., mid afternoon ET yesterday)—Hogewash!, TMZ, JTMP, and VRUS have maintained more or less the same rankings, and the Cabin Boy’s™ latest effort is just barely registering (as usual). Bunny Boy Unread, OTOH, has moved down significantly in the rankings which may explain the hysterical nature of some of its recent post as 57F Osborne tries to attract some attention.
Oh, and here’s something else for Bunny Boy to consider: the Alexa ranking for breitbart.com as of yesterday afternoon was 1,026.
UPDATE—After I had put this post to bed, a commenter made me aware of a series of tweets including this one:I‘m not surprised that Democracy Now! might have over 400,000 followers on Twitter. Amy Goodman is one of the most talented media personalities on the far left. However, I’m shocked to learn that Brad Friedman has only 11.6k followers. After all, Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, and I suddenly acquired over 100,000 new followers each on a single day back in the fall of 2013, right after Brett Kimberlin filed the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit. Twitter Support assumed that the sudden spike was an an attempt to get their automatic system to suspend our accounts. If a low-budget operation like Team Kimberlin can afford 300k spare followers, I’m surprised Brad Friedman doesn’t have more than 11.6k.
Meanwhile, The Bradcast appears to be the lowest-rated program in its time-slot in its market, a distinction I never had while working in radio in Nashville.
If there’s one theme common to all of Team Kimberlin’s media efforts, it’s their persistent abject failure in the marketplace of ideas.
Here’s an interesting bit of information from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s opposition to the motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.A loss in his earnings? Hmmmmm. That loss must have been relatively recent. The IRS Form 990s for Justice Through Music show him making $19,500 a year in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. (2014’s form doesn’t appear to have been filed yet.) Of course, TDPK’s claim about lost earnings will be easily checked if the suit gets into discovery.
I was going to do a post about the increasingly weak web presence of the various Kimberlin-related websites, but all day yesterday, I kept getting this when I tried to check on breitbartunmasked dot com—I got this when I tried to view jtmp dot org—A bit of snooping turned up the fact that the server was either down or disconnected. The connection was good into the server farm, but failed at the IP address of the hardware that hosts the websites.
Did anyone else notice?
I didn’t think so.
While doing some research, I happened to check out the Justice Through Music Project Twitter feed. For a organization that’s trying to connect with young people, it has a remarkably tiny presence in that part of social media.Only 192 follower? Yep, here are a couple of ’em.Green Rush isn’t the only dope related follower, and the restaurant seems to be one of several spam business followers (discount Ray-Bans, etc.).
It’s almost as if something is distracting The Dread Performer/Pirate/Pro-Se Kimberlin from his day job.
