Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin claims that he and a group of hackers were working with the Departments of Justice and of Homeland Security on protecting the integrity of the 2016 elections. In a 25 September post on the protectourelections dot org webseite, he made a similar claim about his not-for-profit Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.: “Since March of 2016, we have also provided significant information about this to the Department of Justice.”

As the TKPOTD from two years ago today shows, Kimberlin was blogging at the older velvetrevolution dot us site up until just before the election. This year, the POE site went quiet after 20 October.

Wow! The times they are a changin’! During the last couple of elections, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin was offering a reward of “up to” $100,000 for evidence of vote fraud. Now, it seems that we no longer need to worry.vrus20161106Kimberlin must believe that his crack team of hackerz has got things covered this year.

TDPK must have thought that his gang of hackers had got the elections properly secured because this year’s “$100k” reward wasn’t for information about electron fraud. This year, TDPK was trying to buy evidence against Brett Kavanaugh.

I first published this bit of Brett Kimberlin’s testimony under oath during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial in the TKPOTD two years ago today.

* * * * *

This was part of Aaron Walker’s cross examination of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial.

MR. WALKER: Now, remind me, if you will, what you do for your charities.
MR. KIMBERLIN: I run a non-profit Justice Through Music, and we work with, ah, famous bands and artist to get young people involved with civic participation. We, ah, we also work with, ah, dissidents around the workd to get them, um, their message out to the general public. We work with, um, a lot of voting registration groups. We, um, registered literally hundreds of thousands of young people to vote over the years. Um, we have been very much involved, um, with making sure that voting machines are, are not hackable and that their, um, they provide and accurate reading. We were very involved with making sure that, ah, Maryland, ah, got away from the electronic voting machines and changed over to the paper ballots, ah, that I believe they used this year for the first time in, um, Maryland. And, um, we have, ah, we have a lot of [unintelligible] campaigns. For example, we had a campaign called “Iran“, um, “Iran Now”, um, during the Green Revolutionin, in Iran. Ah, We’re doing a lot of, of, because my wife’s from Ukraine, we’re doing a lot of, ah, work with Ukraine. Right now, I’m working with, ah, Congressmembers, um, on legislation to protect the vote. I’m working with the Department of Justice right now to, ah, to protect, ah, this coming election. There’s a lot of information about hacking by Russian, and our team that works for me are, are specialists in hacking and, ah, electronic cyberhacking and things like that. So we are probably one of the foremost groups in, in the country on that.

Hmmmm.

Now, the Gentle Reader may want to take The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s claims about working with the DoJ with a grain of salt. He’s been know to lie. OTOH, he offered that testimony in October, 2016, just before he filed his Kimberlin v. Breitbart, et al. RICO 3 LOLsuit and just before the election he probably expected Hillary Clinton to win.

What would be the significance of Brett Kimberlin’s telling the truth about working with the DoJ to “protect” the 2016 elections?

One of the reasons that the Dread Deadbeat Protestor Kimberlin has failed at so many things is his slipshod inattention to detail. For example, when he recently updated his protectourelections dot org website, he neglected to go through the site and properly refresh some of the pages. Here’s what the top of the TAKE ACTION page looks like—

It wouldn’t have taken much though to delete the seven-year-old items from the page and put up one or two things related to the 2018 election, but TDPK left the old stuff and the years of dead air intact. Those years of inattention to the integrity of the election process appear to be a powerful demonstration Kimberlin’s lack of real concern  It sorta/kinda looks as if the whole POE effort is simply a way to draw attention to the DONATE buttons on the site.

Change my mind.

UPDATE—BTW,  Bernie Sander’s poorly crafted amendment referenced on the POE webpage sought to repeal a substantial portion of the First Amendment. Brett Kimberlin has never impressed me as a fan of the First Amendment, so his support for such an amendment doesn’t surprise me.

This is the opening paragraph on the ABOUT page of the protectourelections dot org website.The claim in the last sentence does not appear to be true.

The IRS publishes a list of all registered 501(c)(3) organizations. Protect Our Elections is not on the current list (updated on 8 October, 2018) under its current name, its previous name (Velvet Revolution US), or its Employer Identification Number.

Further, it appears from the information posted on the IRS website that it is not possible for a 501(c)(3) organization to be simultaneously registered as any other type of Section 501 entity.

Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. does appear to be registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(4) organization. For now. Kimberlin’s other not-for-profit, Justice Through Music Project, is registered under 501(c)(3). However, they are two separate entities, and commingling their assets could … never mind … I’ll let him find out the hard way.

BK v. BK


Brett Kimberlin never seems to be able to pass up an opportunity to attract eyeballs to one of his online DONATE buttons. This wanted poster appeared at the protectourelections dot org website on the day after the final Ford and Kavanaugh hearing.

Given that the last IRS Form 990 for VelvetRevolutionUS, the 501(c)4 not-for-profit that has been renamed “Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.,” shows that the entity has essentially no assets, it’s a puzzlement where that $100k would come from if this offer were honest.

Velvet Revolution dot US (now renamed Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc) was Brett Kimberlin’s vehicle for promoting his “election integrity” campaigning. The TKPOTD from five years ago today took a look at one of his efforts.

* * * * *

800-vote-tipBrett Kimberlin achieved his third wave of fame by being publicly upset about election integrity. Episode 1 was the Speedway Bombings, and episode 2 was the story about selling dope to Dan Quayle. Episode 4 has been his anti-First-Amendment lawfare.

During the 2008, Kimberlin and his Velvet Revolution US co-founder Brad Friedman set up an 800 number for tips about voter fraud. The number is still advertised on the Velvet Revolution US home page (No, I won’t link to it.)

I called the number yesterday and got a recorded message from the 800 number reseller who owns the line offering it for lease. Velvet Revolution hasn’t been using it for a while.

I wonder why their are still promoting an tip line that doesn’t exist?

* * * * *

Kimberlin has finally realized that there’s an election coming up, and he’s got a new post up at the revamped Protect Our Elections site titled Russia’s Plan to Interfere with the 2018 Election. (No, I won’t link to it.) The post claims that the Russians are going to engage in online hacking to try to throw the Florida governor’s race to the Republican candidate in order to prevent a criminal investigation of President Trump’s real estate holdings in that state. It claims that the Russians will also work online to help defeat a long list of Democrat senators who are up for reelection while supporting a list of Republicans seeking reelection to the House of Representatives. This work is supposedly being coordinated with an Israeli firm. Oh, and the Russian plan involves disinformation pushed out via Fox News and Breitbart and such alt-right outlets as Wikileaks.

And it has a Donate button.

One more thing … If the Gentle Reader does visit the Protect Our Elections site, due caution should be observed.
