Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Although the velvetrevolution dot org website is still up, the corporate entity VelvetRevolution.US is gone. Kimberlin has changed the name to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.

That’s kinda interesting.

empr dot media is a Ukraine-focused news site that is hosted on the same server as breitbartunmasked dot com. The About page at empr dot media describes it as a

self-funded, alternative news media outlet born on the barricades of Euromaidan and is the #1 Independent Citizen Media about Ukraine, giving analysis and reporting the Truth.

EMPR stands for EuromaidanPR. (Euromaidan was the 2013/2014 demonstrations in Ukraine that toppled the previous government.)

And of course, the site has a Fund EMPR page.

Does Brett Kimberlin believe that protecting our elections is an intersecting business interest with a PR effort for a foreign country?

Hmmmmm.

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.

It looks as if The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has actually begun to try house cleaning some of his web domains to raise some donations. Recently, there’s been a bit of activity on his protectourelections dot org site.Protect Our Elections is a sort of subsidiary to Velvet Revolution.US which is allegedly concerned with election integrity. I has lots of stuff about real and imagined activities by Russians and Republicans, but nothing about Democrat shenanigans.

You’d think that a progressive-oriented organization would at least take note of how the DNC and Hillary Clinton steamrolled Bernie Sanders. OTOH, Kimberlin seems to have connections to folks like Cody Shearer and Harriet Crosby who are or have been connected to the Clintons.

Hmmmmm.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is trying to get some traction with another offer of reward money of evidence of the sort of vote fraud that he was saying that Donald Trump shouldn’t have to worry about only a few days ago. The promotion must be singularly unsuccessful because he had to resort to the Cabin Boy™ flacking for it over at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.

#Fail

VRUS_RoveIt’s been a week since the evidence of non-citizens voting in Frederick County, Maryland, surfaced. Justice Through Music Project, Velvet Revolutions US, Protect Our Elections all claim to be working for election integrity. So what have we heard from them about the possibility of bogus voters on the rolls?

[crickets]

VRUS and POE are continuing to flack a story about suing the FEC in order to save it from Karl Rove. However, they are unclear whether or not his having to face the music is a threat to be serenaded by OP-Critical, the JTMP house band fronted by the Dread Performer Kimberlin.

One of the subsidiary efforts of Brett Kimberlin’s 501(c)4 organization Velvet Revolution US is called Protect Our Elections. On 18 June, 2013, that organization posted it support for an effort by Senator John Tester (D-MT) to introduce an amendment to the Constitution to partially repeal the Bill of Rights. (No, I won’t link to it.) The endorsement ends with a link to another organization collecting supporters for the proposed amendment.

Here’s the proposed text:

Section 1. We the people who ordain and establish this Constitution intend the rights protected by this constitution to be the rights of natural persons.

Section 2. The words people, person, or citizen as used in this Constitution do not include corporations, limited liability companies or other corporate entities established by the laws of any State, the United States, or any foreign state, and such corporate entities are subject to such regulation as the people, through their elected State and Federal representatives, deem reasonable and are otherwise consistent with the powers of Congress and the States under this Constitution.

Section 3. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to limit the people’s rights of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, free exercise of religion, freedom of association and all such other rights of the people, which rights are unalienable.

Ah, I see that some of the Gentle Readers don’t understand the danger in this. Allow me to explain. Most of the entities we do business with or are employed by are corporations, limited liability companies, and the like. The Girl Scouts and the Red Cross are. Most churches and other religious bodies are. All such organizations would lose their rights.

The government could seize the money in your employers bank account without compensation or due process. Your church could be told what doctrine it could publicly proclaim. Newspapers owned by corporations, such as the Washington Post and the Washington Times, could be told what they could print. And what they couldn’t. And what they must. A state or the federal government could tell the ACLU who they could and could not represent.

And don’t be fooled by Section 3. It protects only “the people’s” rights, and “the people” as defined in Section 2 expressly excludes corporations. Sure, individual reporters could write what they please, but the government would be free to prevent those reporters from using corporate resources to publish in the pages of a newspaper or even using the offices, equipment, or other assets of the organization—or even speaking or writing company time. An imam would be free to teach his beliefs on abortion, but the government could prevent him from using the mosque’s property, a corporate asset, while preaching.

Imagine what would have happened to organizations like the Southern Christian Leadership Conference or the NAACP during the ’50s and ’60s without the protection (at times feebly enforced) of the Bill of Rights.

The irony of all this is that Brett Kimberlin’s “charities” are incorporated. They would lose their rights as well.
