Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


In many ways, we are known by the company we keep. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with some of the people and organizations The Dread Deadbeat Protestor/Protector Kimberlin was working with.

One of the subsidiary operations of Brett Kimberlin’s 501(c)4 Velvet Revolution US is called Chamber Watch. On Chamber Watch’s Action Items web page (No, I won’t link to it.), there’s a description of an alliance of organizations and individuals engaged in attacking the U. S. Chamber of Commerce.

Velvet Revolution and it [sic] staff, including journalist Brad Friedman, along with SEIU, reporter Glenn Greenwald, Change to Win and ChamberWatch

That’s an interesting bunch.

Brad Friedman is the co-founder with Brett Kimberlin of VRUS. He is the left coast anchor of the group and a “respectable” public face.

The SEIU is the Service Employees International Union which enhanced its reputation for violence by sending purple-shirted thugs to confront tea party rallies. SEIU founder Wade Rathke was a cofounder of ACORN.

Glenn Greenwald? Yep, that Glenn Greenwald. The one who writes for The Guardian.

Change to Win is a coalition of labor unions formed in 2005 as an alternative to the AFL-CIO; it consists The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Service Employees International Union, United Farm Workers, and United Food and Commercial Workers. All of these unions have a history of violence and/or corruption.

Thugs partnering with left-wing “journalists” to attack big business, but to what purpose? Did I mention that there’s a Donate button on each webpage?

More recently, TDPK has been focusing on election integrity. That change in interest may have some connection the The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin losing a couple of LOLsuits related to his tiff with the Chamber of Commerce. Indeed, his work during the 2016 elections with Ukrainian interests connected to the Democrats’ National Committee appear to have been so … um … rewarding that in 2017 he changed the corporate name of VelvetRevolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. (empr dot media is an English-language Ukrainian news site hosted on the same server as the now-seemingly-abandoned Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.)

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.

Hmmmm.

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has changed the name of his 504(c)(4) operations from VelvetRevolution.US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. Yesterday evening, I spent some time on the protectourelections dot org and empr dot media websites. (The EMPR site is an english language Ukrainian news site.) Neither site had any news about possible Ukrainian collusion with the Democrats during the 2016 election or the recent Joe Biden/Ukraine connection stories.

Hmmmmm.

The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s Internet presence seems to be slowly collapsing. At one point, he had almost two dozens active websites hosted on various servers. Now, only a few remain. Only two sites are left on the Dutch server, breitbartunmasked dot com and empr dot media. His BU PR site has been idle for over four months, and the Ukraine “news” site has only been sporadically updated. It hasn’t had a new post for over three weeks.

The onshore server that hosts his flagship sites, jmtp dot org and protectourelections dot org, only has seven sorta/kinda active sites, and none of them are well maintained. Here’s what their home pages look like along with the dates they were last updated.

Protect Our Elections (March, 2019)

Justice Through Music Project (January, 2019)

Act Up Enterprises (July, 2018)

Russia Dossier (June, 2018)

Treasonist Trump (December, 2017)

We Stand With Ukraine (August, 2017)

Manafort Watch (September, 2016)

I find the dates that some these sites were active and the topics they covered interesting when viewed in the context of the recent collusion conspiracy false narrative.

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.

Collusion? What Collusion?


A couple of collusion stories broke over the past few days, and it will be interesting to see if they are more than just peripherally related.

The first story deals with referrals by Congressman Deven Nunes to the Department of Justice of several individuals for crimes such as lying to Congress and leaking classified information. Over at PJ Media, Rick Moran comments

There may not be enough evidence to prosecute anyone, so its best not to get hopes up. But this is a development that should have several key players in the anti-Trump faction at the Justice Department who flogged the Russia collusion story nervous.

The second story deals with corruption in Ukraine having ties back to the United States, ties to Democrats and the Justice and State Departments. The Hill has published a piece by John Solomon titled Ukrainian to US prosecutors: Why don’t you want our evidence on Democrats?

Ukrainian law enforcement officials believe they have evidence of wrongdoing by American Democrats and their allies in Kiev, ranging from 2016 election interference to obstructing criminal probes.

The names Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Nellie Ohr, and Fusion GPS all figure in The Hill report which suggests connections between members of the U. S. Deep State and corrupt interests in Ukraine.

But many of the allegations shared with me by more than a half-dozen senior Ukrainian officials are supported by evidence that emerged in recent U.S. court filings and intelligence reports. The Ukrainians told me their evidence includes:

• Sworn statements from two Ukrainian officials admitting that their agency tried to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The effort included leaking an alleged ledger showing payments to then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort;

• Contacts between Democratic figures in Washington and Ukrainian officials that involved passing along dirt on Donald Trump;

• Financial records showing a Ukrainian natural gas company routed more than $3 million to American accounts tied to Hunter Biden, younger son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, who managed U.S.-Ukrainian relations for the Obama administration. Biden’s son served on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma Holdings;

• Records that Vice President Biden pressured Ukrainian officials in March 2016 to fire the prosecutor who oversaw an investigation of Burisma Holdings and who planned to interview Hunter Biden about the financial transfers;

• Correspondence showing members of the State Department and U.S. embassy in Kiev interfered or applied pressure in criminal cases on Ukrainian soil;

• Disbursements of as much as $7 billion in Ukrainian funds that prosecutors believe may have been misappropriated or taken out of the country, including to the United States.

Read the whole thing.

Lee Stranahan, Politico, and The Daily Caller have previously reported on attempts by Ukraine’s embassy in Washington to help the Clinton campaign’s effort to discredit Trump during the 2016 election.

Hmmmmm.
