This Just In – Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston!

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/07/06

This may sound a little familiar. It just happened in Canada. But not the killing.

Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston!

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.

Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

Criminals Don’t Like Aaron Worthing’s First Amendment Rights #BrettKimberlin #SWATting

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/06/25

Aaron Walker who blogs as Aaron Worthing has had his First Amendment rights set free once again. And it didn’t take long at all for someone to attempt to murder-by-cop Aaron.

From Patterico (who got SWATted by these goons last year):

Aaron Walker May Speak About Brett Kimberlin

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:41 am

Aaron tells me by phone that the word is Judge Rupp signed the order, modifying the peace order against Aaron to let him speak publicly about Kimberlin.

P.S. There is a very interesting aspect of Kimberlin’s response that I will be blogging in full. You will definitely want to read that post. Trust me on this one.

That was the first article Patterico wrote about it today. Understand, Patterico lives in Los Angeles, so the time-stamp is Pacific Time. And here is how Aaron Worthing wrote it up on his site:

An Important Victory For Freedom of Expression

First, dear readers, you should expect this post to change radically–or perhaps I will start a new post.  I just wanted to get this off my chest immediately.
I am free once again to do something very simple.  I am allowed to say the name Brett Kimberlin again.  The fact I was not allowed to do so, even in a post directed to the world at large and rather than any communication directed to Kimberlin himself, is a sign that things have gone horribly wrong in the Maryland legal system.  But more on that later.
Last Wednesday I sought an emergency stay of Judge Vaughey’s flagrantly unconstitutional prior restraint upon my speech.  And it was granted.  You can read it for yourself, here:
So it means I can talk to a general audience about Brett Kimberlin again, so long as I don’t threaten him or incite others to violence, threats or any other kind of lawlessness.
Which brings me to another point and this is important:
I have accused some people, particularly Brett Kimberlin of reprehensible conduct.  In some cases, the conduct is even criminal.  In all cases, the only justice I want is through the appropriate legal process—such as the criminal justice system.  I do not want to see vigilante violence against any person or any threat of such violence.  As you will see very soon, this kind of conduct is not only morally wrong, but it is counter-productive.
In the particular case of Brett Kimberlin, I do not want you to even contact him.  Do not call him.  Do not write him a letter.  Do not write him an email.  Do not text-message him.  Do not engage in any kind of directed communication.  I say this in part because under Maryland law, that can quickly become harassment and I don’t want that to happen to him.
And for that matter, don’t go on his property.  Don’t sneak around and try to photograph him.  Frankly try not to even been within his field of vision.  Your behavior could quickly cross the line into harassment in that way too (not to mention trespass and other concerns).
And do not contact his organizations, either.  And most of all, leave his family alone.
The only exception to all that is that if you are reporting on this, there is of course nothing wrong with contacting him for things like his official response to any stories you might report.  And even then if he tells you to stop contacting him, obey that request.  As you will see by the time I am done explaining what has been going on that this is a key element in making out a harassment claim under Maryland law—that a person asks you to stop and you refuse.
And let me say something else.  In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that any person supporting me has done any of the above.  But if any of you have, stop it, and if you haven’t don’t start.
So are we clear on all of this?  Good, then let’s move on.
So for now I just wanted to post the actual order.  Coming up very soon?  His response.  And it’s a doozy.
It’s just a matter of how long it takes to scan it in.
And of course there is celebration.  And I have been told to be very dignified in victory which I will be.  Let no one say I am not dignified and magnanimous in victory and…
Ah, what the hell:
And if you are wondering what this is all about, be patient.  I have been silenced unlawfully for almost a month, and I have a lot to tell you.  It will all make sense soon.  For now, start here and you will start to get the picture about what is happening.
Oh, and for those of you who do know what is happening, please hit one of the PayPal buttons on the right and help with one of the two legal defense funds helping me out.  You can read more about them, here.
—————————————
My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years.  I know that claim sound fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence.  If you would like to donate and help my wife and I in this time of need, please go to this donation page or use the PayPal buttons on the right.  And thank you.

And, as I said, it didn’t take long at all for the Kriminal Kimberlin Krew to do their criminal best to get Aaron Worthing killed by the police. As Patterico’s second article clearly shows.

Aaron Walker SWATted

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 5:14 pm

No joke. It happened around 6 p.m. Eastern. I briefly talked with one of the police officers at the scene, who confirmed that someone had called saying he had shot his wife, and sent officers to Aaron’s address.

I just got off the phone with Aaron and he and his wife are a little shaken up but OK. The officers had machine guns but did not point them at Aaron. They were quickly able to determine it was a hoax.

Aaron plans to post about it later.

And Aaron did, indeed write an article about it.

What Happened Tonight

 
So anyone following along on twitter know the basics.  I was SWATted tonight.  My wife was down in the basement, and unknown to me she had fallen asleep in an uncomfortable position while watching TV.  I was just finishing up a post where I was going to share Kimberlin’s nutty response to my motion for a partial stay when someone decided to recklessly endanger my life.
 
I mean again.  Let’s not forget the last time someone intentionally engaged in conduct that they knew could get me and my wife killed.  In that case we know who the culprit was: Brett Kimberlin.  He intentionally and gratuitously revealed my real name, home address, work and work address, in court documents and then told the police in a letter that he believed because of his actions that “there exists the very real probability that Mr. Walker could be subjected to serious harm or death now that his identity has been exposed.”  And then he fought tooth and nail to keep that information from being sealed, and then fought to get them unsealed.
 
But tonight we don’t know who did it, although I knew who to tell the police to look at.  I won’t say their names here, of course.
 
I writing when there was a knock at the door.  A second knock came and it was very insistent.  I went to the door and looked through the peep hole and there was nothing.  I said something like, “hello?” and someone firmly said, “open the door!”
 
I opened up to find two cops hugging the front of the house.  They had M4’s as I recognized from video games (see?! They are good for something!) and they later confirmed.  They were not pointed at my face like it had been with Patrick.  They were pointed at the ground.
 
(When I told my mother that, she said not to minimize it.  No, obviously whoever it was doing their best to get me killed.  Fortunately the police were not so easily tricked.)
 

I can’t quote them, but they said something to the effect that they got an emergency call.  I actually said, “let me guess, someone claimed I shot my wife…?”  One officer confirmed it, and I said, “this is a hoax.”  I think I even said the word “swatting.”

 
So someone had tried to make law enforcement falsely think I committed a crime.
 
I mean again.  Let’s not forget the last time someone tried to do that.  And again, we know who the culprit was that time: Brett Kimberlin.  In that case, he was not trying to provoke an armed response, but instead was trying to put me away up to ten years for an assault I didn’t commit.  Here, you can watch a video showing much of the evidence of it:
 
 
That gives you a taste of what I can show you.  You can read the whole sordid story, here.
 
And indeed as I will tell you soon, the same man, Brett Kimberlin got me arrested on false charges a second time recently, too.
 
I believe the SWATting started around 5:44 p.m.  I say this because the last “opened” tweet in my contacts list was this one and I was checking them pretty often.
 
Anyway, to the police officers’ credit, they recognized a hoax was a real possibility.  I would describe what they did next as just due diligence.  They had me stand out in the yard and talk to an officer about who my list of suspects were, in my bare feet and everything, and they swept the house and verified my wife was safe and no one else was in danger.  As I became more aware of my surroundings, I saw around 5-6 cop cars at the corner, and a number of officers waiting.  No, it wasn’t a SWAT team.  One weenie-ish SWATting apologist thinks that if they don’t bring out the SWAT van it doesn’t count, failing to understand that like many slang terms, it is not utterly literal.
 
My wife came out a bit later and she appeared to be okay and I gave her a hug.  She later told me when the officer woke her up, she said, the same phrase, “let me guess, someone called and said my husband shot me…”  She says the cop was surprised that she wasn’t surprised.  Then I spent a good hour or two talking to the police and contacting people with vital information.  That is, for instance, how Patrick Frey over at Patterico’s knew first even before I tweeted anything out about it, because I knew he would have a lot to tell them.  And we will be working with a detective to get at who committed this latest crime against us in the days to come.
 
And then it started to catch up with my wife, and she started shaking and getting a little upset.
 
I will say emphatically that I do not believe Brett Kimberlin made any of the prior SWATting calls himself and I would be very surprised if he made this one.  It just doesn’t sound like his whiny voice.  I know who I believe committed the prior SWATtings and I shared that name with them since even without hearing the voice you have to suspect the same criminal.  I mean that is just logical.  And when I have a copy of the recording, I’ll let you listen and compare for yourself (unless the police say otherwise).  I believe in showing my work.
 
But on the other hand, Occam’s razor tells us this was done in retaliation against me for having won today in court against Kimberlin.  Which doesn’t mean Kimberlin has anything to do with it, but it suggests a motive for whoever did.  And that is why I decided to interweave the worst of Brett Kimberlin’s proven misconduct with this story.  That way if we bring in any new readers to my blogthe first time they will see front and center the story that this SWATter is plainly trying to suppress: how Brett Kimberlin put my life in danger and how he tried to frame me for a crime.  We may never know who SWATted Mike Stack, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson and now me, Aaron Walker; but I know who tried to get my wife and I killed by Islamofascist terrorists and who tried to frame me for a crime.  And maybe new readers will be motivated to do some of the items listed when I tell you how you can help me in my quest for justice.  And yes, I hope this might even move you to donate to my legal defense funds, using the PayPal buttons on the right.
 
Whoever did this, if you think this will stop me from speaking the truth about the violent domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin, you are sadly mistaken.  If anything it makes me more determined than ever.  This was an act of desperation; this was not the act of people who feel they are winning.  Indeed it was the of people too much a bunch of wussies to come at me directly.
 
In the meantime I think a musical interlude from Tom Petty and Mudcrutch is appropriate:
 
 
One of the officers tonight asked me why I keep talking about Brett Kimberlin if it brings on this kind of trouble.  It’s because Freedom of Expression is something I don’t just believe in, but I defend.  And this threat to Freedom of Expression needs to be defeated.  It is that simple.
 
When my wife was steadier, and our bellies were full, I opened up my computer again there were 720 new contacts of some kind in my twitter.  That was the level of love and support out there.  I am just stubborn enough not to need anyone’s prayers or support to see this through, but it’s nice to feel the love.  So many perfect strangers tell me they are praying for me—although they are becoming less like strangers every day.
 
Finally, if anyone from the Washington Post or any other newspaper wants to talk to me, I’ll talk.  I’ll give you an earful.
 
So the bottom line is that thanks in significant part to the Prince William County Police, who handled this with the right sweet spot between concern that a crime might be occurring, and caution, recognizing it might be a hoax, my wife and I are safe.  A little shaken up, but determined to fight on.

And there you have it, boys and girls (other than multiple worthwhile videos in Aaron’s article directly above). If the Kriminal Kimberlin Krew cannot use a Maryland Judge (CJ Vaughey) who lives in the Caribbean to strip their enemies of their First Amendment rights, they will SWAT their enemies, terrorizing them and adding the possibility of being murdered through an accidental police shooting as a result of the Criminal SWATting of an innocent person.

By the way, Charles Blow, ya got yer ears on?

Maryland Judge Helps Terrorist Perjuror Shred First Amendment To Destroy Honest Man

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/06/04

Brett Kimberlin who was convicted of more than 33 crimes, including setting off bombs that maimed people and led to a man’s death, perjury, forging Federal Government documents in order to acquire the bomb-making materials to create the bombs he set off and maimed people leading to death, drug-running, and more, has once again perjured himself in court. This time in Maryland, before a Maryland judge who lives not in Maryland but in the Caribbean (where the US Constitution is not the Law of the Land). And that Maryland Judge did everything he could to absolutely shred the First Amendment to the US Constitution in his endeavors to help a felon who was sentenced to 50 years behind bars in 1981 destroy Aaron Worthing, who only told the truth about Brett Kimberlin.

Patrick Frey, whose day job is as a Deputy District Attorney but blogs as himself (that would be Patterico) and not as an officer of the court online, has the audio. And a bleg. He is calling for The Army of Davids to transcribe the important parts of the audio of Aaron Worthing’s day in court, where Kimberlin committed perjury yet again and the retired Maryland judge living in the Caribbean who was called to sit in judgment of Aaron Walker (Aaron Worthing is his blog name) worked together to destroy Aaron’s First Amendment Rights and take away his freedom.

Calling all US Constitution and US Declaration of Independence lovers!

Do your part! Help Patterico transcribe the violations of the First Amendment, the perjury, and more! And if you cannot do that, do as Truth Before Dishonor is doing! Spread the word! Do not let terrorists destroy our Constitution and the people!

All that is required for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.
If not you, then who?

If you stand silent now, while someone else is being mercilessly destroyed, in complete opposition to our Founding Documents, who will remain to stand for you when the tyrants, terrorists, evil people come after you?

Patterico’s article, call to arms, and bleg:

 

Crowdsourcing Request: Help Transcribe the Best Parts of Aaron Walker’s Hearing

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:38 pm

Lee Stranahan has published the audio of the hearing where Aaron Walker was arrested for blogging about a public figure.

Ssshhhh. We’ll keep it under wraps for now. It’ll be our secret: just you Patterico readers and me. (And Stranahan readers, and Jawa readers, and . . .)

All I’ll say for now is: my report of the events of the hearing is completely vindicated, as is David Hogberg’s. This is a clear-cut case of a First Amendment violation — about as clear-cut as you’ll ever hear.

Always trust content from Patterico.

Our plan is to release a post on Monday morning with the audio and the best bits transcribed. Ideally, Lee will do a video.

I’ve taken a rough cut at a few passages, but I had to work on a trial before I could transcribe the rest. To save you time, I’ll give you the parts I partially transcribed:

At 9:58:

KIMBERLIN: Last week, he got all these bloggers all over the country to create Let’s Blog About Brett Kimberlin day. Over 350 bloggers blogged that I framed him. And that led to a number — probably scores of death threats. . . . They threatened my daughter, who is a preteen, my mother, they called on the phone and threatened SWAT teams –

WALKER: Your honor, I would like to object here. He is characterizing the statements of third parties –

THE COURT [to Aaron]: You got any clients?!

At 13:53:

WALKER: And you were known as the “Speedway Bomber,” were you not?

KIMBERLIN: I don’t know that.

He doesn’t know that he was known as the Speedway Bomber.

WALKER: You don’t know that you are known as the Speedway Bomber? Do you not know that you — you never read this before in your life?

KIMBERLIN: I’ve read a lot of things.

At one point, Kimberlin claims that the civil judgment against him was “thrown out” and is “considered satisfied.” Since these statements are false, I’d love for them to be fully and accurately transcribed as well.

At 40:30:

WALKER: It is my right under the First Amendment to talk about what this man did to me. It is my right to tell the world what he did to me. Galloway vs. State –

THE COURT: Within reason, my friend.

There is much more in this hearing that is gold. Listening to the audio, I am struck by how much more respect I have for Aaron, and how much less respect I have for the judge, than I did based on the published reports.

Again, leave your efforts at transcription in the comments. With luck, we can put all the best parts in a video to be released on Monday morning, which will be publicized far and wide.

I am not asking for a transcription of the whole thing. I am asking you to listen to the file, pick out the most outrageous parts, and provide an accurate and usable transcription, as well as the time when the notable passage occurs.

Make sure you read the comments first to see if someone has already transcribed your favorite passage.

This must be done quickly. Every minute that a judge’s order prohibits Aaron from blogging about a public figure, his free speech rights are being violated. This must end as soon as possible. Again, our goal is to get out a comprehensive post on Monday morning.

So get cracking!

This is a situation where you can truly advance the defense of the First Amendment in a tangible way. By accurately transcribing the most shocking parts of this hearing, you can help end this injustice.

Here is the audio:

Release the Army of Davids!

See Patterico’s site for the audio. Listen to it. Join in, however you can. Save this country from rogue Judges (like Maryland judge CJ Vaughey, who lives in the Caribbean) who trample the US Constitution under foot while protecting perjurers who lie in court to destroy honest people.

#BrettKimberlin Aaron Worthing Out On Own Recognizance, Pleads For Financial Help

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/29

Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey may not live in a country governed by the US Constitution but every one of Truth Before Dishonor’s authors do.

UPDATE: I thought I was being snarktastic when I added the above sentence to my blog posts yesterday, but it turns out I was far more accurate than I had thought. I thought Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey actually lived in, you know, Maryland. It turns out I was mistaken. He lives in the Caribbean, where the US Constitution and the First Amendment is not the Law of the Land. And he declared his lack of interest in US Supreme Court rulings, which ran counter to what he did. For more information, read the Conservative Commune and Patterico’s Pontifications. And I fully intend to republish Patterico’s article here.

From The Gateway Pundit (HT The Right Planet), Aaron Worthing, who was led off in cuffs, was let out on his own recognizance. Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey, who retired in 2005 and has absolutely no understanding of the internet at all, along with his absolute lack of knowledge that the US Constitution and the First Amendment even exist, much less what they say, fell into the convicted bomber, convicted forger, convicted perjurer, convicted drug-runner’s trap, and helped Brett Kimberlin intimidate and harass another person who was guilty of telling the truth about Brett Kimberlin.

Anyway, Virginia attorney Aaron Walker has sent out a plea for financial assistance, and Gateway Pundit has that plea.

 

Update:  Aaron Worthing just Tweeted this message asking for help…

I cant say more until I talk to my lawyer but… i do really need your help right now. And I appreciate your support.

A subsequent Tweet from Aaron Worthing says he’s free, but pleads for donations

Actually I can add that i am free at the moment. But please donate. Hate 2 beg, but please…

You can donate here.

#BrettKimberlin Associate Ron Brynaert’s Reckless Disregard for the Truth

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/29

Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey may not live in a country governed by the US Constitution but every one of Truth Before Dishonor’s authors do.

UPDATE: I thought I was being snarktastic when I added the above sentence to my blog posts yesterday, but it turns out I was far more accurate than I had thought. I thought Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey actually lived in, you know, Maryland. It turns out I was mistaken. He lives in the Caribbean, where the US Constitution and the First Amendment is not the Law of the Land. And he declared his lack of interest in US Supreme Court rulings, which ran counter to what he did. For more information, read the Conservative Commune and Patterico’s Pontifications. And I fully intend to republish Patterico’s article here.

The below article (with the above title) was originally written by Aaron Walker, a Virginia attorney who blogs under the name of Aaron Worthing on 20120528:

 

First as usual if you have not been following the Brett Kimberlin saga, start here.  But this post is for those of you who have been following along and want to learn more.  So it might be confusing to newcomers–hence why I recommend that newcomers follow that link.
Just the other day I told you about some of the nutty disinformation coming from former reporter Ron Brynaert.  Mr. Brynaert used to be editor of Raw Story but has no visible means of income and will not answer any questions about it, leading me to suspect (but I can’t prove) that he is Brett Kimberlin’s paid agent provocateur.
Certainly Mr. Brynaert hasn’t been acting as a reporter with even the slightest interest in finding the truth in this matter.  Instead not only has Brynaert repeatedly defamed me, but he has done so with “malice” as defined in the law.  “Malice” is one of those concepts in law that I call a “booby trap legal term.”  By this I mean that it is one of those terms that lay people might think they know, but in reality it has a technical legal meaning that can catch people unawares.  I mean if I started talking about “res ipsa loquitur,” “scienter” or “collateral estoppel” most regular people would realize that they are seeing words foreign to their existence and proceed cautiously.  A wise person would track down a law dictionary and look it up.  But malice?  Everyone thinks they know what “malice” is.
But in fact in the law of defamation the word “malice” takes on a meaning only tangentially related to its meaning in plain English.  Hence why I call it a “booby trap legal term” because a lay person would read it and have no fair warning that it was in fact a term of art.  So let me explain what it means.  Specifically in the context of defamation it means making a statement “with knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not.”  New York Times v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254, 280 (1964).  And Ron Brynaert has certainly shown “reckless disregard.”  And further he has also lied about having done so.
For instance, shortly after the January 9 incident and as Brett Kimberlin began to frame me for a crime in its aftermath, Ron Brynaert tweeted out to the world that I had been arrested.  I glossed this over in my blockbuster post proving how Brett Kimberlin attempted to frame me, but in fact they never arrested me.  Then later he corrects himself as follows on January 18:
I wrongly tweeted @AaronWorthing was “arrested” (which hoaxer @NealRauhauser lied about); It was a summons for 2nd Degree criminal assault
Mr. Brynaert had regularly denounced Neal Rauhauser as a “hoaxer” (anonymized link) well before this day and yet here he was admitting that he believe the word of a person he called a “hoaxer.”  Isn’t that the very definition of “reckless disregard” for the truth?  Reporting the claims of a person you know to be untrustworthy as a fact?

On February 12, I challenged him on this point:

@ronbryn why would you trust a man u call a hoaxer as a source?
He replied:
@AaronWorthing How and when exactly did I ever trust @NealRauhauser? In fact, he lied twice when he first emailed me about your assault.
So he lied about relying on Rauhauser.  On the same day, I challenged him on whether Brett Kimberlin had committed perjury:
@ronbryn btw, still waiting for your investigation into whether Brett Kimberlin obtained his injunction against Seth by perjured testimony.
His reply:
@AaronWorthing I never used Neal as a source & there is zero proof Kimberlin commtted perjury but Seth Allen vowed to leave him alone & lied
You got that?  He never used Neal as a source, except he did when he told him I was arrested.  Good to know.  And also notice that he claimed that there was no evidence at all that Kimberlin committed perjury despite the fact that he lied about having his parole revoked.
Brynaert also repeatedly tweeted with certainty that I had assaulted or otherwise attacked Brett Kimberlin, declaring me guilty without so much as a trial, writing for instance on January 11:
Any lawyers friendly with @AndrewBreitbart @Patterico who would cheer an angry lawyer/troll assaulting an imagined “enemy” in a courthouse?
On February 4, he wrote:
@AaronWorthing You attacked someone & face 10 years in prison, lying troll. Please stop distracting me from trying to help @CryingWolfeBlog
By the way, for extra loveliness @CryingWolfeBlog is Mike Stack.  Ron Brynaert is suspected in the SWATting of Mike Stack and in my unprofessional opinion it is his voice on the SWATting tapes.
Indeed, according to him, what I did was an act of terrorism.  Yes, really:
@AaronWorthing I would consider attacking someone in a courthouse an actual terrorist act but you can keep accusing me of paranoid fantasies
That’s from January 14.  So I decided to challenge him on that.  I pointed out that he himself was once, according to him, falsely charged with a crime and wrote on February 4:
@ronbryn @AndrewBreitbart what is your evidence that i committed any crime? or do you trust the word of a convicted perjurer?
His reply:
@AaronWorthing @AndrewBreitbart The evidence is you are charged with 2nd Degree Criminal Assault. I trust the Maryland Judiciary website.
My response:
@ronbryn @AndrewBreitbart so just to verify here, everyone who has been charged, is automatically guilty. is that your position?
His reply:
@AaronWorthing you let @Dust92 smear me as criminal for expunged arrest. You’re innocent until proven guilty. But Maryland didn’t frame you.
Of course they didn’t.  Instead Brett Kimberlin attempted to frame me and Maryland authorities saw through it, albeit very late in the game.
And let’s compare that to the reportage Mr. Brynaert engaged in with Brett Kimberlin.  At his blog Hackers and Fake Newz, he wrote a post entitled The Ballad of Brett Kimberlin: Hypnosis, Levitation and a ‘pot bombing,’ (anonymized link) he engages in one of the most tired tropes of journalism: second-guessing a verdict years after it was delivered and many witnesses died.  So that is right, Ron Brynaert attempted to show that Brett Kimberlin was innocent of The Speedway Bombings—or at least there was not enough evidence to convict him—even after a conviction.  So Brynaert decides that Brett Kimberlin was not proven to be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of being The Speedway Bomber, and thus presumptively innocent.  But I was guilty of second degree assault purely because I was charged.
Does anyone else see why we believe Brynaert is a Kimberlin ally?  We have evidence of coordination and stunning bias in his so-called reportage.
And we still don’t know how he makes ends meet.  Inquiring minds and all that.

#BrettKimberlin BREAKING: Another Critic of Convicted Terrorist Brett Kimberlin Has Been Swatted! (Update: Erickson Speaks!)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/29

Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey may not live in a country governed by the US Constitution but every one of Truth Before Dishonor’s authors do.

UPDATE: I thought I was being snarktastic when I added the above sentence to my blog posts yesterday, but it turns out I was far more accurate than I had thought. I thought Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey actually lived in, you know, Maryland. It turns out I was mistaken. He lives in the Caribbean, where the US Constitution and the First Amendment is not the Law of the Land. And he declared his lack of interest in US Supreme Court rulings, which ran counter to what he did. For more information, read the Conservative Commune and Patterico’s Pontifications. And I fully intend to republish Patterico’s article here.

The below article (with the above title) was originally written by Aaron Walker, a Virginia attorney who blogs under the name of Aaron Worthing on 20120527:

 

BREAKING: Another Critic of Convicted Terrorist Brett Kimberlin Has Been Swatted! (Update: Erickson Speaks!)

Update: And via the Blaze, he is a Cnn contributor?  Well, if there is any way to keep something out of the news, it is to target one of their friends.  Genius!  If this was Brett Kimberlin, I don’t want to hear anyone claim he is brilliant again.


Update (II): Erick Erickson shares his account.  Because he warned the police ahead of time that this could happen it wasn’t quite the dangerous situation that Patterico faced.  But the intent to intimidate was there.


Update (III): True story, when Kimberlin first obtained my identity, I went to the local police and made sure they knew about this situation and the very real possibility that I might be swatted.  Then as I came back home, I looked at the front yard, where because of sewer pipe problems I had to dig up half the front yard.  I have mentioned before that I find humor in horror, and this was one of those times.  I looked at it and thought to myself, “if someone calls the police and tells them that I killed my wife, they are going to think she’s buried in the front yard!”


It isn’t a laughing matter, but as I told you before, I can laugh at things that are unfunny.  We now resume our original post.


—————————-

What we are watching is the attempt to suppress speech occurring in real time.  Of course we don’t know it is Brett Kimberlin or his allies; for all we know it could end up being a hoax.  But there is a growing pattern.  Patrick Frey has the story.

Let me say something else to the liberals out there.  I have studiously avoided making this a liberal v. conservative thing.  I still believe that the vast majority of liberals and conservatives do not believe that this is the way to carry out our discourses—with criminal actions taken to intimidate the opposition into silence.  This is why it is important for liberals just as conservatives to stand up and demand justice.  Framing a person for a crime should not be a political tactic.  Intentionally putting a person’s life in danger should not be a political tactic.  Filing bogus restraining orders (or peace orders) to keep you from talking about someone should not be a political tactic.
And I believe liberals will come around and denounce these tactics en masse and call for the prosecution of those responsible—if only out of self-interest.  What people posing as liberal activists do today to Patrick, Stacy, Erik and myself, can be done tomorrow to a liberal.  Indeed if conservatives see this as something that is 1) effective and 2) unpunished, some immoral conservative is likely to resort to the same tactics.  If the Krazy Kimberlin’s Krew is not stopped, then Markos Moulitsas or Charles Johnson could find himself on the receiving end of this kind of harassment.
But more important than that, is the simple realization that this shouldn’t happen to anyone, period.  And I do think that both sides believe this, equally.  Call me naive, but it is what I believe.

So why haven’t we seen a massive outcry from liberals so far?  (There are some happy exceptions.)  I think sadly it is a testament to how little the rightosphere and the leftosphere communicate these days.  So let us keep trying to show them how it is serious, evil conduct.  Let us make it clear that all we are asking is for the condemnation that this deserves so that the Krazy Kimberlin Krew will know it has no friends left in this world.  Do not be nasty or confrontational.  Just show them the evidence and ask them to stand beside you.

And I know this might sound self-centered, but I would argue that my case is perhaps the clearest one.  One can debate whether Ron Brynaert swatted Patrick Frey.  In my opinion, it sounds like Brynaert trying not to sound like Brynaert, but reasonable people can disagree.  But in my case, I think the evidence is beyond any reasonable doubt: he tried to frame me for a crime.  So perhaps that is where to start them.  Tell them it is long, but I prove everything I claim.
So it might be useful to start with me, then show them what happened to Patrick and then talk about Stacy and now Erick.
Still, if you are out there blogging about Brett Kimberlin, take measures to protect yourself as soon as possible.  Talk to the police, explain to them the situation and ask them what measures they can take to ensure that a SWATting is less likely to happen to you.  I did this on the first day that I learned that Kimberlin knew my real name.  I honestly don’t know if that prevented him from doing it to me.
And finally, if Brett Kimberlin or his allies really did this, they know nothing about the internet.  They just tried to put out a fire, with gasoline.

Ron Brynaert Threatens Police Action Because Aaron Worthing Offers Settlement #BrettKimberlin

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/29

Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey may not live in a country governed by the US Constitution but every one of Truth Before Dishonor’s authors do.

UPDATE: I thought I was being snarktastic when I added the above sentence to my blog posts yesterday, but it turns out I was far more accurate than I had thought.

And I fully intend to republish Patterico’s article here.

The below article was originally written by Aaron Walker, a Virginia attorney who blogs under the name of Aaron Worthing on 20120524:

 

In Which Kimberlin Ally Ron Brynaert Threatens to go to the Police Because I Offered Him a Settlement

It never ends with these guys, does it?  I have been telling you all week about the legal troubles caused by Brett Kimberlin in particular including how he attempted to frame me for a crime, but at the same time I have had Ron Brynaert nipping at my ankles.  I have heard from several sources that Ron Brynaert was accusing me of essentially being an evil, evil man by extorting him.  I had supposedly done this by sending an email to him offering a settlement of the lawsuit I filed against him.
Of course Ron didn’t show any of these people the supposedly damning email.  Instead Ron just told them it was extortion!  And isn’t that typical for this crew?  They never quote your words (except in snippets, taken grossly out of context), they just give you their spin and pretend it is your words.
You see, a few weeks back I saw him tweet that “I will gladly testify for @AaronWorthing if Kimberlin sues him over courthouse incident since Brett lied to me about it.”  So I took that as an opportunity to try to get him to settle the case.  And instead of just saying it wasn’t extortionate and hoping you believe me, I will let you read what I wrote for yourself:
Now if you read over the letter, you see I am asking for two things in settlement of the suit.  First, I asked for money.  Second, I asked for his testimony against the other defendants.
And notably I don’t suggest that I will or won’t file criminal charges, peace orders, etc. against him based on whether he settles or not like what Brett Kimberlin did.  No, the only thing I am threatening to do if he doesn’t settle my civil case is… to continue the case.

So let’s take each of those terms one at a time.  Is it extortion to ask for money in exchange for dropping a suit?

No.  And the first hint that it isn’t, is the fact that this is what happens in just about every settlement.  Is Ron Brynaert under the impression that it is illegal anywhere in the United States to settle a suit in exchange for money?  Well, it certainly isn’t illegal in the state of New York, as demonstrated by the numerous cases related to settlement agreements.  If offering to settle a suit in exchange for money or property was extortion, then they wouldn’t be as commonplace as they are.  Indeed it is generally the policy of the most states to encourage such settlements.  See e.g. Rock v. Reed-Prentice, 39 NY 2d 34, 40-41 (1976) (“The general purpose of section 15-108 of the General Obligations Law is to encourage settlements by altering or eliminating certain rules of prior law which had an inhibiting effect on the settlement process.”)
Second, as for asking for his testimony, that is also common in settlements.  Haven’t Ron ever watched an episode of Law and Order?  Or just watched Goodfellas?  How often is it that a group of people commit a crime together, and the prosecutors offers one of them a deal in exchange for testimony against the others?  And that prosecutor would also generally want collaborating evidence, so that the defense attorneys for the remaining suspects cannot claim that he is just spinning a fairy tale to keep out of prison.  And that situation is far more coercive than what we have here.  A prosecutor can put a man in prison or even on death row; I am just asking for compensation for the torts that Ron have committed against me.
Those torts include his serial defamation as he claimed over again that I assaulted Brett Kimberlin.  He now appears to be arguing that he was merely tricked by Kimberlin with his silver tongue, as though “a convicted perjurer with a whole book dedicated to his serial dishonesty told me, so I had to believe it!” is a viable defense.
Now that is not to say that Ron won’t feel any coercive pressure to settle.  He stands to be financially bankrupted by my suit in Virginia, creating an obvious inducement to settle.  But the reality is that not all coercive pressure is prohibited by the laws against extortion.  A starving man can be told by a restaurant, for instance, they will not feed him unless he first mops the floor.  That man might feel pressure due to hunger to comply, but that is perfectly legal.  Or a law school graduate might be coerced into choosing between taking a bar exam or being unable to practice as an attorney in a given jurisdiction.  And as noted above, a prosecutor can tell a criminal that he must turn state’s evidence or face possible prison or even execution, and that is perfectly legal.  Likewise it is perfectly legal to offer settlement on these terms; indeed it is done all the time.
But Brynaert is undeterred:
Go ahead Ron.  Show them my email and explain that it is some kind of extraordinary act of extortion, as opposed to a perfectly ordinary offer of settlement.  The NYPD works very hard and they could use a good laugh now and then.
At the same time he is peddling the claim that I violated his sister’s privacy somehow.  Really folks this is almost too stupid to believe and it really goes to why I think that Ron Brynaert actually a little nuts.  (The alternative theory is he is “crazy like a fox.”)  That’s just my opinion, but judge the facts for yourself.
You see it started when my friend Dustin made this statement in the midst of a long comment at one of my posts:
Of course, Ron has smeared just about everyone he’s come into contact with… even friends, which I guess is some kind of game theory in play. So have most of his buds. They smear at will, and yet if they also are quick to threaten to sue if ‘defamed’ with something accurate, such as Ron’s criminal record (at least Ron claims he has one… for all I know that was BS too).
Ron then emailed me and said that the reference to him having a criminal record was defamatory and demanded that Dustin’s comment be deleted.  But what the truth turned out to be, according to him, that he did have a criminal record in the sense that he was arrested once and it was expunged.  So technically he did have a criminal record although not one most reasonable people would care about.  He went on then to explain that what had happened was this.  His sister and he were at a bar.  His sister was abducted and then raped.  While she was missing, Ron got concerned and tried to get management at this bar concerned.  To hear him tell it, the management didn’t care and later the cops showed a lack of concern, and he got a little out of control.  So I told him that since what Dustin said was true, I was not going to delete his email.  Instead I added a little bit of context, while also respecting his sister’s privacy by not specifying who was abducted or the fact this person was raped, as follows:
I have been exchanging emails with Ron and I will share to a degree some additional context. He states that his “record” consisted of being arrested once. He was not convicted and to hear it told, it was kind of a bullsh-t situation. Basically as he tells it, a member of his family had been abducted at a club, and he attempted to get management to help him locate this family member. They refused and he called the police and while the police was dragging their heels, he yelled at them and was arrested for that. If you credit his account, even if he was a little in the wrong (a big if), I don’t think it does any discredit to his character. How calm would you be if a family member is missing? How patient would you be?
And i say that bluntly leaving out a lot of details out of respect for the primary victim of this crime. From his account it fairly sounds like a nightmare.
He further asserts later that the judge agreed to expunge his arrest from his record. So as far as the law is concerned, it didn’t actually happen.
I will say that he has submitted to me no objective evidence to support this story, so we only have his veracity to go on.  For what it is worth, for all the bad feelings I have had with him, and the deliberate deception I have accused him of, I actually believe him on this one.
So that puts Ron’s story into enough context to make you think that him being arrested probably wasn’t really such a bad thing, and Dustin’s comment—which covered many subjects besides just Ron’s criminal record—remained.  I figured that was a fair solution.
Instead Ron insisted a few weeks later that I had done something evil, violating his sister’s privacy.  I didn’t manage to save every tweet, but I have a few from this exchange.  Here is one example:
@AaronWorthing knows I caught him lying about reporting threat* since he gave ridiculous excuses so he smeared me using my sister’s rape.
So I reacted with puzzlement.  Didn’t he just violate his sister’s privacy by telling the world that the relative in the story is his sister and she was raped?  So for instance I said (sometimes mashing tweets together when they were strung together):
@ronbryn if you really were so concerned with her privacy why did you announce to the world she … was raped just now? you could have kept that part quiet.
And later:
@ronbryn do you even grasp what the term “privacy” means? psst it means you don’t tell the whole world!
Which brought this head scratcher of a reply:
@AaronWorthing Are you for real? It’s my right to divulge my own privacy. Not yours. You’re sick. My sister was raped, you ghoul @Patterico
Which seems like kind of strange logic.  I mean, isn’t that his sister’s right to privacy, here?  She was the one who was allegedly violated.  So that led me and others to doubt the veracity of his entire story.  If he really had a sister and she really was raped, why would he act like that?
And if you think that doesn’t make sense, well… welcome to Brynaert logic.  I have clashed with him before.  For instance, when he was busy trying to figure out who I was, he argued that I was probably a commenter named Timb on IMAO’s website.  Let me see if I can explain this “logic.”
On twitter I use an avatar of a kitten with a sniper rifle.  Like this.

 

I like it because of the absurdity of a cute kitten doing a cold, evil thing.  I found it years ago in IMAO’s site when he was running a caption contest.  The winner was Timb, with the line, “Oswald was a p___y.”  This was a riff off of a line in The Usual Suspects, where a sniper says, “Oswald was a f_g.”
So one day Ron decided to do an in-depth investigation into why I chose my avatar, and when he asked where it came from, I replied, “Oswald was a p___y!” and linked to the IMAO caption contest page.  Therefore, Ron reasoned, we must be the same person because both “misquoted” The Usual Suspects the same way!  Yes, really.
As I wrote back then:
And what are the chances that both Tim B and myself would use the same words?  Well, pretty frakking good, given that the words in question was the phrase that won IMAO’s caption contest connected to that very picture, a fact I was alluding to when I referenced IMAO in my tweet.  In other words, Brynaert, you colossal idiot, I was quoting Tim B.’s winning entry.  It ain’t secret knowledge, you twit.  I suppose if I said “Houston, we have a problem” Brynaert will think I am really Tom Hanks.
Oy, my head hurts just thinking about it.
By the way, this email between long-time internet rival “Kman” and Brynaert is fairly prescient:
Your boner to bring down Aaron makes you — and by extension, liberals — look like a-hole children.  Worse than that, the fact that you’re doing it BADLY with messed-up conspiracy theories, etc., makes you an ineffectual tinfoil-hat-wearing a-hole child.
Seriously, liberals, it is time to throw these guys under the bus.  Disown and denounce.  And in the case of Babs Streisand, ask for your money back.
—————————————
Oh, and now it can be told: I am proud to say that Fred Thompson made me a winner.  IMAO had a contest to see who could name the best quote from Fred Thompson, but they explained that they really weren’t going to check if he really said it, thus inviting people to just make stuff up, too.
So one winner was real, one was… I don’t know.  And the third was mine and yes made up.  But I have to believe he said something like this at a certain point in his life…
So let me get this straight. You want me to play essentially myself, a man with a thick Tennessee accent and real conservative values—not the moderately liberal values that passes for ‘conservative’ in New York—and you want this character to be the elected D.A. of New York City?
Fred Thompson himself ended up picking the winners and we each got a signed copy of his book.  Which was really cool.
—————————————
* The supposed lying is equally dumb.  When I ran the everyone draw Mohammed blog, every now and then someone would comment and say something to the effect that they were going to kill us.  I would reply, “very good.  Your threats have been reported to the FBI.”  He claimed that somehow because I was using a pseudonym that I couldn’t possibly be telling the truth.  You know, because the FBI will not take anonymous tips.  (This is me rolling my eyes.)  Why he felt it mattered a damn to determine whether or not I actually reported them or just said something to scare those thugs, is beyond me.

Aaron Worthing Led Out Of Court Today In Handcuffs! #BrettKimberlin

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/29

Aaron Walker, a Virginia Attorney who blogs under the name Aaron Worthing, had a court appearance facing Brett Kimberlin, the Speedway Bomber, the convicted bomber, the convicted drug-runner, the convicted perjurer, the convicted forger (forging Federal Documents to get his bomb-making material), the serial intimidator, the serial harasser, a man who has over 33 felony convictions on his rap sheet.

For those who still don’t know (and how could you not know?), Brett Kimberlin lied under oath in an attempt to fram Aaron Worthing for a second degree felony Aaron Worthing did not commit — and the courthouse cameras prove Brett Kimberlin lied under oath in his attempt to frame Aaron Worthing. You can see the video on Aaron’s site (http://allergic2bull.blogspot.com) or on Truth Before Dishonor. You can read Patterico’s multiple pre-2012 articles about Brett Kimberlin on Truth Before Dishonor. You can also read a great many Aaron Worthing articles about Brett Kimberlin on Truth Before Dishonor. I have reproduced those articles, in their entirety (save for some images and videos that didn’t copy over as efficiently as I needed). Study to show yourselves approved.

Do read Robert Stacy McCain’s report about today’s incident. (By the way, Robert Stacy McCain and his entire family are in hiding specifically due to threats and perceived threats received from Brett Kimberlin.)

Maryland Judge Judge C.J. Vaughey needs to do a little bit of research. First off, that judge needs to study the US Constitution, specifically the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Secondly, Maryland Judge C.J. Vaughey needs to learn about Brett Kimberlin and his history of lying under oath and domestic terrorism.

CJ Vaughey may not live in a country that is governed by the US Constitution, but Truth Before Dishonor and its authors do.

#BrettKimberlin Bomb Maims Military Veteran, Kimberlin Song Mocks Dead Victim

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28

Attention Brett Kimberlin shills and co-conspirators (You know who you are, Neal Rauhauser, Ron Brynaert, Richard Symonds, Brad Friedman, Nadia Naffe, Jay Liederman, et al): You are supporting a felon with more than 33 convictions to his name, who maimed and caused the suicide of a US Military veteran in his attempts to distract from his other crimes, and then went to create a music video to mock that US Military veteran he maimed and caused to commit suicide. There is a special place in sheol for each and every one of you.

From Aaron Worthing:

 

Did Brett Kimberlin Mock His Victim Carl DeLong in a Music Video?

 

First off, if you haven’t been following the Kimberlin Saga® let me suggest you start here.

But this post is written for those of you who are following along.  As I have told you before, Brett Kimberlin is a convicted terrorist known as the Speedway Bomber.  I have quoted this passage from Kimberlin v. White, 7 F. 3d 527 (6th Cir. 1993) before, but it is particularly important to pay attention to the details this time:
 
Kimberlin was convicted as the so-called “Speedway Bomber,” who terrorized the city of Speedway, Indiana, by detonating a series of explosives in early September 1978. In the worst incident, Kimberlin placed one of his bombs in a gym bag, and left it in a parking lot outside Speedway High School. Carl DeLong was leaving the high school football game with his wife when he attempted to pick up the bag and it exploded. The blast tore off his lower right leg and two fingers, and embedded bomb fragments in his wife’s leg. He was hospitalized for six weeks, during which he was forced to undergo nine operations to complete the amputation of his leg, reattach two fingers, repair damage to his inner ear, and remove bomb fragments from his stomach, chest, and arm. In February 1983, he committed suicide.
 
So one thing I have known about but haven’t mentioned yet, was his work with the band Op-critical.  Stephen Gutowski over at MRCTV has a pretty good backgrounder on this band:
 
It appears that sometime around 2006, several years after Kimberlin was released from prison, he joined a band named Op-Critical. The band’s music can best be described as liberal alternative rock and they claim some of it has been featured at ACLU and Amnesty International events. Their music mirrors that of other little known liberal bands who trashed Bush in the later part of his presidency and would be unremarkable if it weren’t for the fact that one of the guys playing guitar and singing is a violent criminal.
 
Take, for instance, the Op-Critical song titled Fear. The song describes Americans being fearful and “thinking that the plastic bag maybe isn’t innocent” and how that undue fear is being used by Bush to control them. The lyrics mocking the fear of terrorist attacks would, again, be unremarkable for a late 2000s liberal band if they weren’t sung by a man convicted of setting off bombs in a small American town and the music video didn’t feature that bomber lurking around the Cleveland Park DC Metro station complete with shots of an unattended bag.
 
But when I looked at the video I saw something that Gutowski didn’t.  It wasn’t just a bag, but…

 

 
 
Do you see what I see?  Not just an unattended bag, but an unattended gym bag.  You know just like the one that maimed Carl DeLong.  So this man who placed a bomb in a gym bag—and by the way, left it at a high school football game, where children could have been hurt—is telling us not to be scared of unattended gym bags.  It is hard not to see that as a mockery of the crime he committed against Carl DeLong.
 
One of my favorite entries last Friday was by a friend of mine, Dustin (who has also been a victim of the Korrupt Kimberlin Krew’s harassment), who shared with us the suicide note of Carl DeLong.  If you haven’t read it, it is a must-read and genuinely powerful, as a father says goodbye to his family.

And Brett Kimberlin decided to mock how he took this man’s life, to mock the very fear that could have kept Carl DeLong alive.  If it had occurred to Carl DeLong that an unattended gym bag was a threat, perhaps he would have done something different and this wouldn’t have led him down a path that led him to take his own life.  Perhaps whatever pain the DeLong family has felt could have been avoided.  So the next time someone says that Kimberlin is reformed etc., remember that he actually mocked one of his victims in a music video.

 
Let’s watch the whole thing:
 
 
Of course this is far from the only example of Op-critical’s music videos taking on new meaning when you know about its guitarist and vocalist’s criminal past.  For instance, Op-critical put out a song called Exile, described on its YouTube page as “Protest music video against torture and rendition. Contains actual torture footage.”  At about the 1:30 mark, the video shows Brett Kimberlin walking along, minding his own business when suddenly a black SUV filled with apparent government agents pulls up and captures him in the image on the right.
 
And that is followed by extensive footage of Brett Kimberlin being tortured, waterboarded, etc.  And get a load of this at the 2:16 mark:
 
 
 
It’s blood.  Presumably fake blood.  Which is pretty significant given that I have suggested before that his photographs of his supposed bruises were fake, perhaps by using make-up to create a fake image of a bruise, and now we see concrete proof that he knows people who know how to create realistic but fake injuries.  And I am not going to put any recent pictures of his face up on this blog, but if you go through the video you will see images of his face with fake wounds on it and then you will see the picture on the right.
 
And I wonder if it would have changed the point of view of anyone commenting on the video about how infuriated they were by our treatment of suspected terrorist if they knew that the star of the video was not a suspected terrorist, but a convicted terrorist.
 
Let’s watch the whole thing:
 
 
Update: Lee Stranahan looks at the Exile video and sees something I didn’t: “he seems to be showing you how he sees himself; an unjustly imprisoned man who was tortured by brutal authorities.”  I would quibble that we are really seeing how he presents himself; whether he believes that he was actually innocent of the bombings is beyond understanding.

And I will have to apologize for this next video.  Up until now there was an acceptable–not “:great,” but “acceptable”–level of quality in the music, but this is just grating in the pitch of the singing.  But notice something in the opening footage.  It starts with Hitler declaring that the big lies are more likely to be believed—an ironic quote given Kimberlin’s record for honesty—but on top of that the very next images are of…  September 11, suggesting that he buys into the Truther “Reichstag fire” theory of 9-11 as an inside job.  Lovely:

 
 
And we get one final video from him.  It’s a remake of For What It’s Worth, only dedicated to the current Occupy movement:
 
 
Which is unremarkable except for one detail.  Go to the YouTube page for it and look at the upload date:
 
Oh, lookie here (see right)!  On the day after I supposedly put him in the hospital and he was supposedly recovering from his grievous injuries, he was putting a music video on YouTube.

#BrettKimberlin Continues With His Intimidation Tactics

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28

May 25, 2012 was National Write About Brett Kimberlin Day (which got international attention). It was a smashing success, much to Brett Kimberlin’s dismay. Bloggers, huge and tiny and everywhere in between, talk radio, FOX News, multiple newspapers all took part in it on the same day, 20120525. And Brett Kimberlin and crew didn’t take it lying down. No, Brett Kimberlin and crew continued with their intimidation tactics, as if those tactics wouldn’t be publicized for all the world to see.

Yes, Kimberlin’s old tactics, upon which he depended for ever so long, are now doing the exact opposite of what he desired. They’re shining more light on the evil that is Brett Kimberlin. And they’re showing that Kimberlin and crew are more than willing to use every intimidation tactic possible, “legal” or otherwise.

While there are multiple Liberal groups or outfits who are busily covering for Kimberlin or helping Kimberlin or hiding the truth because they think it is a Right v Left thing, it is not any of the sort. It’s a Right v Wrong thing. Seth Allen is a Socialist. Whether he admits it or no, he’s a Socialist. (And I expect that he’d admit so to some extent.) Politically speaking, Seth Allen is as wrong as anyone can be. But our Founding Documents, the US Constitution and US Declaration of Independence (found in my sidebar) give him the absolute right to speak his opinion and to speak out about Truth and facts and histo-facts. And Seth Allen did just that in his reporting on the criminality that is Brett Kimberlin. And Kimberlin viciously, maliciously, frivolously sued Seth Allen for telling the truth about Kimberlin. And worked to intimidate and harass Allen while falsely accusing Allen of intimidating him.

That’s how Kimberlin and crew work. It doesn’t matter if you’re a staunch Conservative (like me) or a downright Socialist (like Seth Allen). All that matters is making sure you don’t tell anyone the truth about Brett Kimberlin or his crew. So, no, this isn’t a Right v Left issue. I’m supporting a Socialist against Kimberlin. A Socialist. And Socialism is a cancer on society. I’m supporting a Socialist against Brett Kimberlin. It’s a Right v Wrong issue and not a Right v Left issue.

And, as I said, Brett Kimberlin and crew has continued, post-25MAY2012 blog-o-lanche, with their intimidation tactics.

As Aaron Worthing has very carefully shown:

 

Brett Kimberlin’s “Non-Political Charity” Tries to Intimidate Its Critics

 
First, if you are wondering why this blog is focusing on the Brett Kimberlin story, which has erupted in the last few weeks (triggered by coming out with my Blockbuster Post on how a man tried to frame me for a crime), I suggest you start here.  Bluntly, if you had been through what I had been through, you would focus on him, too.
 
So yesterday we had an EverybodyBlog About Brett Kimberlin day and I was profoundly moved at how well things went.  People keep thanking me, but they have it all wrong.  I have to thank them.  They have seen the what Brett Kimberlin and did to Patterico and I, yet hundreds of bloggers and thousands of twitterers and who knows how many Facebookers, etc. all participated, knowing it could happen to them.  It’s not brave to run into a minefield unawares; it is brave to run into it knowing it is a minefield.  And so the praise belongs to those people, not me.
 
And just this morning, we get to see more of Brett Kimberlin’s intimidation in real time.  At the Justice Through Music website (anonymized link), you get this lovely entry (in its entirety):
 
Thanks For All of Your Support!
 
By CR
 
May 25, 2012 – We want to thank all of you for your tremendous support this week.  Keep those donations flooding in so that those opposed to human rights and progressive values will see that their malicious attacks on youth, women, activists, Muslims, and the 99% will not be tolerated in our beloved democracy.  Please note that we are working closely with both state and federal law enforcement officials and have given them lists of all those who make inappropriate statements or contacts.  Again, thank you so much for all the donations.  We feel like Planned Parenthood after the attack on them.
 
Remember folks, in Brett Kimberlin’s language, criticism is an “attack.”  It’s always an attack.  So when he says that “attacks on youth, women, activists, Muslims, and the 99% will not be tolerated” he means that criticism of those groups will not be tolerated.  Even though in fact under the principle of Freedom of Expression, it must be tolerated, even if it is morally wrong (such as Hustler’s denigration of S. E. Cupp–it’s immoral but clearly legal under the First Amendment).
 

Second he wants you to know that they are working closely with state and federal law enforcement and they are giving a list to them of anyone who makes “inappropriate statements or contacts.”

 
Now of course any violence or threat of violence against them is wrong.  It is Brett Kimberlin who has resorted to violence and other forms of unlawful intimidation to get what he wants.  We are not going to stoop to that level.  We are not even going to joke about hurting him.  And I am not going to give out his personal information, like his address, his phone number or his email address.  I have indeed endeavored to redact that information from the hundreds of pages of documents I have published online.  I do not want to see him physically harmed.
 
So if anyone has been threatening harm to Mr. Kimberlin, his charities or anyone else, not only should the persons doing the threatening stop doing so, but they have the right to report such threats to the appropriate authorities.  But do you think they are going to limit this to just genuine threats?  Especially given that he has already alleged in court documents that my call for justice was some kind of violent threat.  No, I think that he is threatening to report anything you say that is negative against Brett Kimberlin or his charities, even if they are true.  In my opinion, it is thuggish intimidation in real time.
 
And I know you won’t be cowed by it.
 
—————————————
 
And let’s notice a few other things, too.  First, in my opinion with any Kimberlin outfit, their claims to be working with authorities is more than likely bluster—although perhaps some journalists would be interested in verifying those claims.  Surely a spokesperson for Justice Through Music would be willing to name the officials they have been speaking with so that we can follow up with those officials?  Just a thought.
 
And of course their bluster about donations pouring in seems unlikely.  It is important to note that no significant voice has risen up to defend Brett Kimberlin except for one stalkerish site that is run by NOT BRETT KIMBERLIN—as Stacy McCain is wont to call him.  Indeed given that he repeatedly claimed that Seth Allen blogging about him had cost his charities donations, it seems unlikely that this high profile, highly factual exposition in major blogs and even some newspapers, it seems unlikely that the result would be increased donations.
 
—————————————
 
My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years.  I know that claim sound fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence.  If you would like to donate and help my wife and I in this time of need, please go to this donation page.  And thank you.

Kimberlin’s Infamy Goes International #BrettKimberlin

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28

For those of you who are still in the dark about the convicted criminal Brett Kimberlin (all 3 of you), Kimberlin was found guilty of 33 felonies in 1981, and more felonies prior to 1981. He was convicted of being the Speedway Bomber, forgery in forging Department of Defense documents to get the bomb-making materials to set off the bombs that terrorized the city of Speedway, Indiana, drug-running, perjury, and much, much more. He is suspected to have been involved in sexual abuse of a minor, the murder of the minor’s grandmother in order to continue his sexual abuse of a minor. It is believed he became the Speedway Bomber to distract the local law enforcement from the murder of that grandmother. And much, much more.

Lately, he has been involved in intimidation of multiple bloggers who were shining the light on exactly who Brett Kimberlin is, via use of malicious and frivolous lawsuits, harassment campaigns, threatening the health and safety of spouses and children of those who exposed him, threatening the workplaces of those who exposed him, and much, much more. A stroll through Truth Before Dishonor will provide multiple articles discussing Kimberlin and his criminal past and his criminal present. A stroll through the internet will provide much more information on Brett Kimberlin.

And it’s not only American bloggers who are now talking about him, exposing him. FOX News and American Talk Radio is talking about him. And even Australian bloggers are talking about him. Yes, despite his intimidation tactics (both “legal” and illegal), his criminal life is becoming well-known, even outside the US.

You can run (from yourself), Brett Kimberlin, but you cannot hide. Not anymore.

Michelle Malkin on Brett Kimberlin Crew’s Harassment of Bloggers

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/23

Originally published by Patterico.

Few people have endured more harassment for their opinions than Michelle Malkin. I spoke with Michelle on Monday for over an hour about the harassment several of us have suffered at the hands of Brett Kimberlin and his supporters for about a year and a half now. Michelle has a blog post up now about the harassment, and she is right on target:

I have spoken directly with both Patterico and Aaron about their ongoing battles.

The mainstream press, not just the conservative blogosphere, needs to hear and report their stories.

This is a convoluted, ongoing nightmare that combines abuse of the court system, workplace intimidation, serial invasions of privacy, perjury, and harassment of family members. McCain was forced to move with his family out of his house this week, and has just gotten a small taste of what Aaron and Patterico have been enduring over the past year. Aaron and his wife were fired from their jobs after their employer feared the office would be targeted next. Convicted bomber Kimberlin has filed bogus “peace orders” against Aaron, when it is the Walkers who are the victims, not the perpetrators.

And Patterico’s plight will send chills up your spine when he is ready to tell it.

Emphasis is Michelle’s.

I want to emphasize that conservative bloggers are not the only victims. A small and very left-leaning blogger is the only one to have been sued by Kimberlin. Kimberlin threatened a left-leaning lawyer with workplace harassment and a possible bar complaint simply because she helped Aaron try to keep his identity and personal details secret from this convicted bomber.

And yes, my tale should be coming soon. The restrictions which previously held me back are no longer in place, and I am simply working on telling the story in a coherent fashion, with very little time I have to devote to the project. A rough draft has been sent to various people, so that the story would come out even if an unfortunate accident were to befall me.

Thanks to Michelle for her support. It means a lot.

Brett Kimberlin Harasses Stacy McCain By Contacting His Wife’s Employer

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/23

Originally published by Patterico.

Stacy McCain:

Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin on Monday continued his effort to silence those who write about his criminal past by contacting my wife’s employer, claiming that I was “harassing” him. The resulting security concern required immediate relocation if I was to be able to continue writing about the case of Kimberlin, a violent felon, perjurer and admitted tax cheat who is employed as the director of a 501(c)3 non-profit that has collected $1.8 million in contributions since 2005.

Harassing family members; claiming that truthful criticism is “harassment”; taking complaints to a critic’s workplace . . . all of these tactics fit a pattern some of us have witnessed for months. Stacy is not the only one to suffer through this sort of treatment. He’s just the latest.

Kimberlin’s associates have asked for pictures of my wife; mentioned the names of Stacy’s children; outed a commenter of mine and made references to his family; made references to Aaron’s wife; and so forth. They love bringing family into these battles. Again, it’s part of a pattern.

This is what your “non-profit” money buys, donors! Be proud!

You’ll hear about all of it in coming days and weeks. But bear with us. The harassment has been an almost daily occurrence for almost a year, so there’s no way the whole story can be told in a short post or two. But it will be told.

Ace wants people to cover this, and says that those who don’t are acting like the bystanders in the Kitty Genovese case:

It is very easy to decide “this isn’t any of my trouble” and permit vicious behavior.

Easy. Perhaps understandable.

But hardly ethical. And certainly not heroic.

Who wants to get involved? Easier, and surely safer, just to duck one’s head and hide, and hope the danger visits someone else.

Perhaps the alligator will prefer to eat someone else first. Perhaps his belly will be full.

And why should you stick your neck out?

Hey, it’s not like the Conservative Media is supposed to cast a spotlight on injustice, stick up for the common man abused by bullies, or fight leftist outrages.

It’s not as if we’re supposed to fight the fights that others shy away from, right?

We’re all just supposed to sit back and let the traffic money roll in.

Right?

It’s easier that way. A few victims here and there aren’t our concern. We’ve got bigger things to worry about. We’ve got to keep focused on The Big Things, which just happen to be, felicitously enough, the things that won’t draw any heat.

Lee Stranahan has stepped up, with this video:

I will repeat a couple of points. First, this isn’t about dredging up a crime that happened 34 years ago. Kimberlin has done plenty since then. He made claims about selling pot to Dan Quayle — claims that the lefty author of a book about Kimberlin believes are false. He deceptively avoided paying a wrongful death judgment to the widow of the man he blew up. He sued a small-time blogger in 2011 for telling the truth about him, and made several false statements about his history under oath in an effort to win a large cash judgment. He made several provably false statements regarding his encounter with Aaron Walker, in an effort to get the State of Maryland to prosecute Walker. He has regularly defamed, harassed, and stalked people who criticized him.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, folks.

One more point that I have made before and will make again: this is not about partisan politics. Kimberlin thuggishly went after a left-leaning attorney who represented Aaron pro bono. He went after the lefty author of the book Citizen K. I believe this country is filled with millions of honorable people with left-leaning beliefs who would never tolerate the kind of behavior we have seen from this man.

Brett Kimberlin has no politics. He is all about making money. Don’t make this into a partisan battle. That’s what he wants.
