Dread Deadbeat Pirate Pro-Se Performer Protector Publisher Kimberlin inflicted a new posting on the Internet this week. There’s a post dated “May 14, 2019” at protectourelections dot org titled One of the Most Effective Anti-Trump Groups in the Country Is Now Tackling Voter Suppression in the States. The text was lifted verbatim from a post that appeared at The Daily Beast on 13 May.
There’s been nothing original on the site for months, and there’s been nothing new at jtmp dot org or breitbartunmasked dot com either.
UPDATE—Oh, look! Mr. Downtwinkles is back.
Rudy Giuliani, who is Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, had announced plans to visit Ukraine to ask that country’s new president-elect to pursue inquiries that could yield new information about the origin of the Russia collusion investigation and about former Vice President Biden’s past influence in the country. He cancelled his trip, saying:
I think I’m walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president, in some cases enemies of the United States, and in one case an already convicted person who has been found to be involved in assisting the Democrats with the 2016 election.
A least a couple of the Democrats running for President have expressed support for allowing felons, including those still serving time, to vote. However, Pete Buttigieg, when asked about allowing terrorists to vote, simply said, “No.”
Protect Our Elections/EMPR was unavailable for comment.
Yesterday’s TKPOTD took a look back to Team Kimberlin’s failed effort to use a lawsuit filed by Nadia Naffe against Patrick Frey (aka Patterico) as part of their campaign of lawfare. All of Kimberlin’s attempts at brass knuckles reputation management have failed. Meanwhile, the bloggers he sought to punish are … well, this list of world-wide website rankings tells the story.
Everything is proceeding, and some are receding, as I have foreseen.
It’s all about the Benjamins, so one of the things I do from time to time is go over the IRS Form 990s filed by The
Dread Deadbeat Panhandler Kimberlin’s “charities.” The TKPOTD from six years ago today was about 2011 paperwork filed for Velvet Revolution US. (That’s his 501(c)4 that has had its name changed to Protect Our Elections/EMPR.)
* * * * *
The IRS Form 990 for a not-for-profit is supposed to list “Officers, Directors, Trustees, and Key Employees.” Velvet Revolution US listed the following individuals for 2011:
Jeff Cohen, Executive Director
Brad Friedman, Director
Although Brett Kimberlin testified under oath in the Kimberlin v. Allen lawsuit that he ran VRUS, he is not listed—not even as a key employee.
Kevin Zeese is an activist lawyer who has been involved with filing bar complaints against conservative lawyers (such as Justice Clarence Thomas) on behalf of VRUS. Although the VRUS website refers to Mr. Zeese as a Director of the organization, he is not listed on the 990 either.
When I asked a lawyer familiar with not-for-profit filings about these sorts of omissions, he remarked, “Oh, that’s just Kimberlin’s usual lack of attention to the niceties of corporate forms.”

Al Capone went to jail for tax evasion.
It sorta/kinda looks as if Brett Kimberlin’s Protect Our Elections/EMPR 504(c) not-for-profit has dropped the ball. Recent news stories indicate there there may have been a significant effort by Ukrainian interest to interfere with the 2016 U. S. presidential election, but there doesn’t seem to be any mention of the developing story at either the protectourelections dot org or empr dot media websites. This screen cap was taken just after 8 pm ET Monday night.Curiouser and curiouser.
A commenter to yesterday’s TKPOTD brought up the fact that The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to stick his nose into the Blankenship mine disaster criminal case. Of course, he was unsuccessful and wasn’t able to bootstrap that effort into some sort of useful something or other for his RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit. Today, we look back to the TKPOTD from four yeas ago which dealt with another failed attempt by The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin to meddle in someone else’s legal matter.

Brett Kimberlin has tried to make a name for himself fighting for clean elections through Velvet Revolution US, the 501(c)4 he cofounded with moonbat broadcaster Brad Friedman.
King Lincoln Bronzeville Neighborhood Ass’n v. Blackwell was a voter fraud case in Ohio that accused Republican Secretary of State Ken Blackwell of conspiring to deprive Ohioans of their right to vote for Democrats. At one point, Kimberlin stuck his nose into the proceeding.
The Blackwell case wound up being dismissed.
Is anyone surprised that Velvet Revolution US has never found any election irregularities implicating Democrats, not even in Chicago?
* * * * *
And so Kimberlin failed in that effort at election protection, but not as spectacularly as he failed in his 2016 effort to protect us from Donald Trump. In 2017, he changed the Velvet Revolution US corporate name to Protect Our Elections/EMPR. <sarc>Maybe that will help improve his performance.</sarc>
