Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I must confess that I’ve been bogged down in my Real World work life and haven’t paid much attention to The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin’s protectorelections dot org website of late. While I wasn’t looking, the site posted an article with original content (everything for the past year or so has been ripped off from other websites). The new article is dated 5 February, 2020, and it tries to spin the problems with the Democrats reporting app for the Iowa Caucus as a Russian hack.

Without evidence, the article proposes the following similarities between the Iowa debacle and an alleged Russian attack on an election in Ukraine:

  1. Malware and/or denial of services attack to delay and distort election results;

  2. Interference of election result transmission to central tabulators;

  3. Chaos that undermined vote counting and confidence in election results;

  4. Propaganda effort to blame delay on those who oppose pro-Russian candidate; (sic)

BTW, the authority cited for the alleged attack in Ukraine is empr dot media, an English-language Ukrainian “news” website hosted on the same server as breitbartunmasked dot com and greencasamaryland dot org. In 2017, Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revoution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.

Of course, Protect Our Elections takes the position that the Russians favor Bernie in the Democratic primaries because they favor Trump in the fall.

In the case of Iowa, Russia wants chaos and wants to use that chaos to divide the Democrats.  Of all the major candidates, Russia wants Bernie Sanders to be the nominee against Trump so the false narrative being spun by Russia and Trump is that Joe Biden and the DNC caused this Iowa meltdown in order to deprive Sanders of his win there.  Clearly, in the case of the Iowa cyber catastrophe, the real beneficiaries are Russia, Trump and Sanders.  Although election officials are feverishly trying to spin the failure on a bad app rather than Russia, Americans need to understand that when Russia benefits from something, it likely has a hand in it.

And that’s supposed to make sense? Let me get this straight—Democratic party officials are trying to hide hacking by the Russians in the Iowa primary in order to help Russia and Trump in November.

Uh, huh.

If Kimberlin expects that kind of crackpot theory to generate more donations to Protect Our Elections, he should probably fix the PayPal link.

The TKPOTD for two years ago today took a look at what was happening with Brett Kimberlin’s Protect Our Elections operation.

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.

A couple of years ago, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin was still part of peddling the Russia Collusion Hoax. However, he’d already been caught (in 2017) with his hands in an effort to acquire forged financial documents aimed at causing problems for the Trump administration, and it’s recently become more widely known that the old Velvet Revolution US is now renamed Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.—EMPR being EuroMaidanPR, an English-language Ukrainian propaganda operation.

Given the evidence that the former Ukrainian government probably attempted to interfere with the 2016 election, Kimberlin’s association with the Alexandra Chalupa (a likely Ukrainian/DNC operative), and POE’s ties to EMPR, it may be that Protect Our Elections is no longer a viable entity. The IRS has revoked its 501(c)(4) status. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

While testifying under oath in October, 2016, Brett Kimberlin stated that he was “working with the Department of Justice right now to protect the, this coming election.” He said that the work related to “hacking and electronic cyber hacking.” He also claimed that he was working with members of Congress.

The TKPOTD for 1 November, 2016, dealt with Kimberlin’s efforts to protect that fall’s election.

* * * * *

In yesterday’s TKPOTD I mentioned that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin says that he’s busy right now with work for his not-for-profits related to the election. Here’s the sort of interest he’s stirring up on the Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution.US websites.jtmp20161031vrus20161031Neither website seems to be generating any comments. Nada, Zilch. Bupkis. On the one hand, it’s good to see that TDPK is having the sort of Real World influence he should. On the other hand, that’s even more satisfying when put into the following perspective: During the past week, the AYPWIP? posts here at Hogewash! have generated 16 comments.

Narf!

Clearly, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin failed to properly protect that election because the wrong candidate was elected in spite of foreign influence.

The Gentle Reader may have noticed that people with connections to Ukraine have been in the news recently. My podcasting partner and fellow codefendant Stacy McCain has an interesting post here.

BTW, here’s a picture of Brett Kimberlin taken while he was stalking various bloggers during BlogBash 2013. I was reminded of it after reading Stacy’s post.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’ve actually spent some time reading the content of westandwithukraine dot org. It’s one of The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s websites. It went up in 2014. All of the posts prior to August, 2016, have been memory-holed, but much of the earlier material is backed up on the Internet Wayback Machine (web dot archive dot org).

I haven’t found any original material on the site. It all seems to have been lifted from other sites, While most of the posts are news stories that would be interesting to someone following the Ukraine/Russia conflict or who was generally interested in Ukrainian culture, there are some posts that stood out for their political content. One post from April, 2017, was a puff piece promoting George Soros and claiming that opposition to the billionaire is a Russian black op.

The Soros obsession is gripping the world and shows no sign of going away. Democratic movements are not winning many of their battles against dictators and would-be dictators. These leaders, many of whom have been in power for too long, need people to believe that the enemy is someone else. Above all, Putin needs this myth. It can only be hoped that Putin will be gone before Soros. The world needs George Soros far more.

There are indications of Soros’ involvement with the shenanigans going on in Ukraine. Elizabeth Vaughn reports this over at RedState:

Shortly before Lutsenko took office, then-U.S. Embassy Charge d’ Affaires George Kent sent a letter to the Prosecutor General’s office asking them to end the investigation. Kent made it clear that “U.S. officials had no concerns about how the U.S. aid had been spent.”

If this account is correct, the Obama administration pressured a foreign government to drop an investigation into an organization they had co-founded along with activist George Soros. They were interested in preventing American taxpayers from learning how their tax dollars were being spent as well as concealing their collaboration with Soros. But, above all, they were each doing their part to insure that Hillary Clinton won the presidency.

Hmmmmm.

We know that Brett Kimberlin was working with Alexandra Chalupa during 2016 and 2017 and that both of them were involved in attempts to use foreign sources to dig up dirt on persons connected to the Trump campaign and, later, the Trump administration. I’m sure someone is following the money.
