The Stupid. It Burns.


Donald Trump has done more to hobble Vladimir Putin’s ability to act on the world stage than any of his predecessors. For example, Trump’s favorable treatment of fracking has kept the prices of oil and natural gas down, devastating Russia’s income as an oil exporter and severely truncating Putin’s cash flow. It’s the Democrats who espouse policies which are more favorable to Russia’s interests.

So the New York Times ran this yesterday—

That “warning” was supposedly contained in an intelligence briefing. If our intelligence agencies really think that Vladimir Putin would act so stupidly against his own interests as to try to interfere in the 2020 election in Trump’s favor, then it’s time for a top-to-bottom review of what’s going on in Spookville. Trump’s appointment of Richard Grenell as acting Director of National Intelligence looks like a pretty good move.

Note to the Times: The Russian Collusion Hoax failed last year.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare as a form of brass knuckles reputation management has proven to be an exception to the rule that all publicity is good publicity. The TKPOTD from two years ago today shows one example of why that is so.

* * * * *

After years of frivolous litigation involving multiple LOLsuits (I’ve been a defendant in four of ’em and a bogus peace order petition), The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has been singularly unsuccessful. And now his name is back in the news because of his association with Cody Shearer, the creator of the anti-Trump “Dossier No. 2.”

J. E. Dyer writes about the Shearer/Kimberlin connection in a post over at Liberty Unyielding.

Shearer, besides being a major piece of work in general, played a key role during the George H.W. Bush years, and the first Clinton campaign for the 1992 election, in hyping Brett Kimberlin’s claim that he (Kimberlin) had sold pot to then-Vice President Dan Quayle, years before when Quayle was younger.  Shearer had known Kimberlin for years, in other words, and used his (Shearer’s) journalistic pulpit to retail a politicized narrativeon Kimberlin’s behalf.

But although BuzzFeed and Daily Caller both cite unnamed sources affirming Kimberlin’s marginal role in the “Russia” narrative assembled separately in 2016 (again, Kimberlin denies it), what really completes the circle is Cody Shearer’s membership in the Shearer family, whose ties to the Clintons, including his own, could hardly be closer.

Read the whole thing. And also checkout this post over at The Weekly Standard.

The Washington Examiner now carries the post from the now-defunct Standard.

Kimberlin is a loser. His grandiose drug smuggling scheme failed. He got caught with his bomb making material. He music career dead-ended. He lost his LOLsuits. And he picked the wrong side in the 2016 election and collusion hoax.

Tick, tock.

Double Plus Untrue


Yesterday, two sources one would normally associate with support for the Deep State delivered news that exposed lying by government agencies. First, WaPo published an extensive article based on a lessons learned report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction that contain details about how multiple government agencies had misrepresented the “progress” in the Afghan War to the American public. Then, another report was publicly issued Department of Justice IG which detailed lies told by the FBI to deceive the FISA court to issue surveillance warrants against Carter Page and other malfeasance associated with the Russia Collusion Hoax.

You know, it’s almost enough to make one think that the swamp really does need draining and that some (or all) of the dangerous reptiles be dealt with.

Alexandra Chalupa and Those Election Hackers


The story is breaking again about Democrat/Ukrainian activist Alexandra Chalupa’s involvement with DoJ and DHS election hacking with a offshoot of Anonymous that called themselves “The Protectors.” They were affiliated with Brett Kimberlin and his Velvet Revolution US not-for-profit. Here’s how Kimberlin, the convicted Speedway Bomber who is probably most famous for lying about being Dan Quayle’s dope dealer, testified about the Protectors operation during a trial held in October, 2016.

We’re doing a lot of, of, because my wife’s from the Ukraine, we’re doing a lot of work with Ukraine.

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.

And our team that works for me are, are specialists in, in hacking and electronic cyber hacking, and things like that. So we are probably one of the foremost groups in, in the country on that.

Kimberlin has indeed been deeply involved in things Ukrainian. He worked with Alexandra Chalupa and her sister with their Digital Maidan Twitter project which supported the 2014 revolution, and he is involved with the EuroMaidan PR website as well. In fact, he changed the Velvet Revolution US corporate name to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.

I can think of some interesting questions for Ms. Chalupa.
