Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


While I was reviewing posts on the Internet as part of research about [redacted], I was reminded of some comments posted to Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Unread by a sock puppet called “Texas Tim.” As the Gentle Reader will see from the evidence below, Brett Kimberlin was/is almost certainly Texas Tim.

Consider this excerpt from a long comment to the main BU post about BlogBash 2013.It contains a bunch of lies and one interesting tell. Let’s start with the tell, “… and my wife …” According to Tetyana Kimberlin, there were only five people involved in Kimberlin’s demonstration at BlogBash 2013. They were Craig Gillette (the photographer in the blue parka), Brett Kimberlin, Tetyana Kimberlin, and her two daughters. Brett Kimberlin was the only person there with his wife.

Now, to the lies. First, there is no record of any cooperation between the PG County Police and Brett Kimberlin, Justice Through Music Project, or VelvetRevolution.US (now Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.). However, there is evidence suggesting that threats made to the BlogBash venue by Brett Kimberlin and Neal Rauhauser did result in an increased police presence in the neighborhood during the event.

Second, the only “carding” that went on at BlogBash was to verify that people entering were on the guest list. It was a private, by-invitation-only event. As to whether anyone was carrying, …

Third, the only “imam” joining Kimberlin’s protest was Kimberlin himself with his head wrapped in a keffiyeh. Tetyana Kimberlin has said that she took these pictures of Brett Kimberlin using his phone. I downloaded them from the BU website.

So there’s reasonable evidence pointing to Brett Kimberlin as Texas Tim.

Texas Tim’s comments during early 2013 were often connected to Islam and to intelligence agencies. For example, note the hat in the picture above right. For a further example, here’s the first part of a long screed from a memory-holed post “Aaron Walker ‘Appears’ on Huff Post Live to Talk ‘Swatting'”.

BU went quiet for the months of May, June, and July in 2013. Texas Tim posted these comments to the last post in April.Dagestan is a republic in Russia on the western side of the Caspian Sea. During early 2013, it was still in the throws of trouble overflowing from the neighboring republic of Chechnya. Makhachkala is the site of the most prominent mosque in the region. Was Kimberlin in Dagestan, or are these comments just another bit of false narrative?

BTW, the Salon post linked to in the bottom comment deals with some of the organizations Kimberlin sued in the RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.

There are interesting data points here. These dots are connected, and determining if and how they might also connect to [redacted] will be enlightening.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin says that he’s been working with the Department of Justice to protect the integrity of our elections. He’s says that hacking has been involved. Some folks have suggested to me that Kimberlin has been blowing smoke, that he’s just trying to inflate his importance and attract hits on the Donate buttons on his websites. Lee Stranahan has been looking into Kimberlin’s activities, and Lee presented some of the information that he’s found on Periscope yesterday.The Periscope video can be viewed here. It has an … um …. interesting … yeah, that’s the word … interesting cast of characters.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin tells lies, and sometimes those lies get a bit of circulation beyond Team Kimberlin’s own websites. This post about #BrettKimberlin’s Latest Lies from six years ago today deals with one example of how Team Kimberlin tried to influence the 2012 presidential election.

* * * * *

Stacy McCain has a summary of Team Kimberlin’s latest lying attack. This one is aimed at a Romney campaign staffer. Posting at Democratic Revolution as under the name of one of his not-for-profits (a cheesy outfit I call the Velveeta Revolution), Team Kimberlin accuses Romney staffer Bill Murray of fraud. That posting relies on an article at The Democratic Daily [memory-holed link] by Alex Brant-Zawadzki. Mr. Brant-Zawadzki is a cyber colleague of Neal Rauhauser. Mr. Rauhauser works with Brett Kimberlin at Velveeta Revolution.

As Stacy McCain notes:

Brant-Zawadzki’s article (“Romney Staffer Committing Charitable Fraud“) refers to the American Liberty Alliance, a Tea Party-oriented project launched by Eric Odom in 2009 that was subsequently dissolved, as well as the National Bloggers Club, as points of association between Murphy and Ali Akbar, a conservative New Media strategist who is president of the National Bloggers Club. Brant-Zawadzki’s claim that the club is a “fraud” appears to be based entirely on the fact that the non-profit has not yet filed its first report with the Internal Revenue Service. Yet as Akbar has explained, the club was only organized in February of this year, and has up to one full year to report its activities to the IRS.

I’ll bet that the National Bloggers Club could be persuaded to open its books for an audit if either the Justice Through Music Project or (OK, I’ll use it’s legal name) the Velvet Revolution did the same.

Put up or shut up, Mr. Kimberlin.

UPDATE—There’s been some buzz on the Interwebs about whether or not the National Bloggers Club is a 503(c)(3) organization. In order to determine that, we can look at 26 USC 503(c):

(c) List of exempt organizations

(3) Corporations, and any community chest, fund, or foundation, organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes, or to foster national or international amateur sports competition (but only if no part of its activities involve the provision of athletic facilities or equipment), or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals, no part of the net earnings of which inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual, no substantial part of the activities of which is carrying on propaganda, or otherwise attempting, to influence legislation (except as otherwise provided in subsection (h)), and which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office.

IANAL, but from what I know about the National Bloggers Club it seems to fit that description. Some people are writing that because NBC has not filed with the IRS yet for recognition of an exemption, they are not organized as a 503(c)(3) entity. That doesn’t seem to be what the Internal Revenue Code requires. Indeed, the IRS web page on how to register as a 501(c)(3) has this:

Generally, organizations required to apply for recognition of exemption must notify the Service within 27 months from the date of their formation to be treated as described in section 501(c)(3) from the date formed.

Clearly, NBC is within that 27 month window. There really is nothing to see here. We do need to move along and stop feeding the trolls.

UPDATE 2—As I mentioned above, IANAL nor am I any sort of tax professional. However, I have been a director or trustee of several 501(c)(3) organizations and was the Treasurer responsible for IRS filings at one. I write based on that experience. There’s someone hiding behind a nom de cyber who is trying to post incomplete (and therefore misleading) information about what a 501(c)(3) organization is required to do and when it is required to do it. Nice try, but you’re blocked.

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin continued his lying attack against the National Bloggers Club, spinning a false narrative in his RICO Madness LOLsuit court filings alleging that NBC had not even filed for 501(c)(3) status. He kept it up until NBC received its acknowledgement from the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization.

And In Other Good First Amendment News …


The largest anti-SLAPP penalty ever awarded is now the largest anti-SLAPP penalty ever reversed and remanded. The 2nd State Court of Appeals in Fort Worth, Texas, found the 67th State District Court in Fort Worth had abused its discretion in awarding Neal Rauhauser more than $300,000 in attorney’s fees, $150,000 in sanctions (initial sanction award was $1,000,000), and additional non-monetary sanctions not authorized by the Texas Citizen’s Participation Act (TCPA). The court further ordered Appellee Neal Rauhauser to pay all costs of the appeal to the prevailing parties, James McGibney and ViaView, Inc., the parent company of the BullyVille website.

James McGibney stated, “It’s not an everyday occurrence that you see a fugitive, with four outstanding warrants for their arrest, win and then, in dramatic fashion, lose one million dollars, without ever stepping foot in a courtroom. That’s exactly what happened to defendant Neal Rauhauser, and we are grateful that the SecondCourt of Appeals found in our favor.”

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
