Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday evening, the peace of my Twitter feed was disturbed by tweets about a Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post from 2013 peddling a story that Brett Kimberlin had said he had hired Ali Akbar to work as an undercover mole inside of the conservative political movement. The article (which now carries Matt Osborne’s byline) quotes a spokesman for Velvet Revolution (now known as Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.) as saying—

“We hired him in 2007, as soon as we heard of his van break-in,” said a spokesman for Velvet Revolution. “Our alert Democratic staffers identified him for exploitation as a fake conservative political activist. By insinuating himself closely with Republicans at all levels, we could one one day pull the mask off and do tremendous damage.

“That day has come,” the spokesman said before taking questions. The call, which took place on Skype, lasted twelve minutes and took place under condition of pseudonymity.

Under the code name ‘Operation Shebbab,’ Akbar would promise intense social media coverage and then fail to deliver it, stepping upwards with every failure by throwing fellow Republicans under the bus. The plot has worked far better than its conspirators had dared to hope.

“Setting up the fake nonprofits, well that was an important part of the plan,” Bob the Spokesman explained. “Brett Kimberlin is too busy running actual nonprofit organizations to bother running fake ones.”

That’s the same Ali Akbar who Brett Kimberlin sued less than six months later for “defamation, malicious prosecution, harassment, stalking, conspiracy, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.” Kimberlin lost that LOLsuit and two others he tried to bring against Ali. Of course, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s claims in his LOLsuits contradict the story being spun by Bob the Spokesman in the BU post, so at least one of the tales isn’t true. My money would be on all of them being lies.

Does Team Kimberlin really want to stick with a claim that Brett Kimberlin hired someone to engage in a form of election interference? Really?

Team Kimberlin’s flailing around is becoming downright … I was gonna type “pitiful,” but I don’t pity the fools. My reaction is in line with Stacy McCain’s.The mockery continues.

One of the scams that VelvetRevolution.US, the 501(c)4(4) not-for-profit Brett Kimberlin runs which is now known as Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc., used to run involved offering a $100,000 reward for evidence of election fraud and to seek donations to fund said reward. Here’s an example from the 2016 election season.

No such reward has been offered for information about elections fraud occurring during the 2017 Alabama special senatorial election or the 2018 elections. I find that interesting when considered along with the admission by Brett Kimberlin’s associate Matt Osborne that he was a part of the Alabama Dry fake Russian bot operation.

POE/EMPR is still has a $!00k reward posted, but it isn’t election related. The latest reward is offered for information that Brett Kavanaugh committed perjury during his confirmation hearings. I suppose that has the advantage of being a reward that will never have to be paid but that still might stir up a donation or two—and it doesn’t call attention to what Kimberlin’s associates have been doing under cover.

Matt Osborne has wandered back into the news. He’s been quoted in the NYT as admitting to being a part of the Dry Alabama fake Russian bot scam that tried influence the recent special senatorial election in Alabama. Of course, Osborne is no stranger to spinning false narratives given his work as a writer and editor with Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. This post from five years ago today called Silly Question Du Jour dealt with one Osborne’s false stories back when he was hiding behind the nom de cyber of Xenophon.

* * * * *

Xenophon (the Troll) has another of his wacko posts up at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) in which he tries to connect me to various nefarious activities on the Interwebz.BU20140109Perhaps I should. By whom?

So far as I know, the only person who would be in a position to ask me questions in court would be The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. (Bill Schmalfeldt might get a crack at me if I’m called as a witness at one of his trials. However, given the evidence that could be introduced from the record of the peace order extension hearing, my testimony might not be required. But I digress.) Why would Kimberlin think that questions about alleged interactions between me and Matt Osborne, William Ferguson, or Alex Brant-Zawadzki might be germane to either the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit or the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness? Is TDPK teamed with these folks? If he is, that would go toward proving the existence of Team Kimberlin, but, since TDPK’s suits claim that merely saying that Team Kimberlin exists defames him, he might not want to go down that path.

I have no knowledge of any of the stuff Xenophon has written about, but if TDPK wants to question me about the material in that post, I’d be happy to take his questions on the witness stand under oath. He would be opening the door to very interesting lines of inquiry by the defendants. He could expect some interesting related questions when he testifies in the RICO suit. (He isn’t banned from testifying in federal court.)

Oh, one more thing … I’ve never claimed to be a dramaturge, but I am a trained voice actor, and I am familiar with The Wasps. Thus, I’ll leave Xenophon with these words from Xanthias:

Your dream stinks vilely of old leather.

There still has been no comment from Osborne’s buddies at Protect Our Elections/EMPR concerning election integrity issues and the Dry Alabama scam. However, a zombie commenter to one of yesterday’s posts has shared this link to a Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread post of an article Osborne published on LinkedIn. (The Gentle Reader may remember that the funding for the Dry Alabama scam came from the founder of LinkedIn.). Of course one can’t say for sure, but the reposting of that article certainly gives the appearance of endorsement of Osborne and his election interference by Team Kimberlin.

UPDATE—Oh, I see Mr. DownTwinkles is back. These posts must be getting under someone’s skin.

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin had a busy 2016. Here are some interesting happenings from that year—

22 April, 2016: Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al. LOLsuit filed seeking a determination that “Defendants Mitch McConnell and Charles Grassley have waived the Senate’s right to advise and consent with regard to the nomination of Merrick Garland.” Paragraph 1 states that “Plaintiff’s work includes seeking redress in federal court for violations of his civil and statutory rights.”

28 August, 2016: manafortwatch dot org website becomes active.

23 September, 2016: Last post made to manafortwatch dot org.

28 September, 2016: Last Russian hacking story prior to the 2016 election posted at protectourelections dot org.

13 October, 2016: Brett Kimberlin testifies under oath: “Right now, I’m working with Congress members on legislation to protect the vote. I’m working with the Department of Justice right now to protect the, this coming election. There’s been a lot of information about hacking by Russians.”

31 October, 2016: Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. filed, a sealed LOLsuit seeking damages under 42 U.S.C. 1983, a civil rights statute. Other defendants included Stephen Bannon, the estate of Jerry Barnes, and Kenneth Trigoning. Barnes had been the State’s Attorney for Carroll County Maryland. Trigonning is a retired Carroll County Sheriff.

8 November, 2016: Hillary Clinton loses the election.

17 November, 2016: $100,000 “reward” offered by the protectourelections dot org website for evidence of election fraud.

Not everything proceeded as he had foreseen.

Here are some interesting data points—

Brett Kimberlin changed the name of his 501(c)(4) not-for-profit from VelvetRevolution.US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.

There is a web domain called empr dot media that purports to be the “#1 independent citizen media about Ukraine.”

At the bottom of the  empr dot media home page, there’s some greyed-out fine print which begins, ” This website developed and runs on donations received from JTMP (US), …”

Brett Kimberlin’s 501(c)(3) not-for-profit is called Justice Through Music Project and operates a website called jtmp dot org.

The empr dot media website is one of four domains hosted on the same server as breitbartunmasked dot com. The other two domains on that server are breitbitnews dot com (one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s abandoned sites) and xeonhosting dot net (the service provider).

The Gentle Reader may draw whatever conclusion he will from these facts.
