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.

If Criminal #BrettKimberlin And Crew Thought Anti-Constitutional Threatening Would Silence The People

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/30

THEY THOUGHT WRONG!

Brett Kimberlin has been major news at Memeorandum and a major trending hashtag on Twitter for several days now. And each time he or a member of his crew does anything, it makes major news in the blogosphere, creating Memeorandum thread after Memeorandum thread after Memeorandum thread. Convicted serial criminal Brett Kimberlin needs to learn the first rule of holes, and stat. (That first rule of holes is: QUIT DIGGING!!)

At this time on Memeorandum:

A Primer For That Villain #BrettKimberlin And His Villain Crew

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/30

From the US Declaration of Independence (link found in my sidebar):

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

From the US Constitution (link found in my sidebar):

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The First Amendment to the US Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Let this also serve to educate Maryland Judge CJ Vaughey, who lives in the Caribbean and has publicly declared a disdain for US Supreme Court decisions in his action destroying the US Constitution and the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

Go, Read Patterico’s Lastest… Now! (Update: Donate here!)

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 20120525:

Update: Here’s where you can donate to help my and Robert McCain’s family.

Didn’t you hear me?  I said, now!

Joking aside, one thing I left out of my story is how Patrick wrote a long letter to Maryland state authorities urging them to drop charges against me.  I didn’t mention it, because Patrick asked me to hold it back, because it broke news that he wanted to break himself, his way.  Which is a fair request since he did me that solid by writing it in the first place.
I am 90% sure that this means that Patrick has no problem with me publishing the letter.  Here’s an excerpt from it:
Kimberlin filed a ridiculous complaint about me with the California State Bar, claiming among other things that he is “disabled” because he is a felon, and that by writing about his felonious history I was “discriminating” against the “disabled” in violation of California law.
And as soon as I get confirmation from Patrick, I will be putting up a full copy.
By the way, it is funny that they refer to disability discrimination, because there is some evidence that they are themselves practicing disability discrimination.  There is some evidence that they singled me out because I have learning disabilities, falsely believing that this made me somehow uniquely incapable of psychologically withstanding their attacks, as though being dyslexic, etc. is like being bi-polar or something.  It isn’t.  It’s more like being paraplegic or blind—one part is broken, the rest is fine.
In fact an argument can be made that growing up with my disabilities and frankly facing a level of discrimination that people in my demographic don’t ordinarily face toughened me up.  Let me give you a concrete example.

One of my disabilities, dysgraphia, in my particular case, is a disability makes it very hard to write by hand.  When I write by hand, I have been clocked at write four times the “normal” person’s speed when I print, and twelve times the normal person’s speed when I try to write in cursive.  On the other hand, when I type I am perfectly normal, and so that is what I do most of the time.

But I didn’t have that option growing up.  I couldn’t lug around a laptop computer all the time as I do today, because they didn’t exist when I was in high school (or they were prohibitively expensive—I am honestly not sure what the state of technology was back then).  So yes I dropped out of the 11th grade, but what kind of person can make it through 11 grades with that kind of difficulty weighing him down?
I’ll tell you what kind: the most stubborn b*stard you are ever likely to meet, that is what kind.  Indeed the best man at my wedding actually argued that in me my stubbornness became a virtue in me.  I was tenacious in achieving my goals, and I was stubborn in my loyalty to my friends, my dedication to justice and even in my love with my wife.
But of course most relevant here, stubbornly dedicated to seeing that justice be done.  Which is precisely why Brett Kimberlin picked the wrong man to commit a crime against.  He will pay a price for what he did, in the courts of Virginia, and hopefully in the Maryland criminal justice system, too.
Anyway, enough jawboning.  Go read Patrick’s newest piece.  It will be on par with the blockbuster post I wrote that started all of this and you know that is saying something.
And finally to everyone blogging, tweeting, Facebooking, etc. about Brett Kimberlin today, there is simply no way to thank all of you by name.  But know that I thank you, and that everyone you are defending today—not just me, but Seth Allen, Mandy Nagy (who has gone through a similar nightmare for accurately describing Brett Kimberlin’s criminal record), Patrick Frey, and Robert Stacy McCain—and probably other people whose names we haven’t learned yet.
And you are Spartacus.  Or maybe Fonzicus:
Seriously, thank you very much.

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 20120522:

I admit I was close to tears when I saw this:
That is at Lee Stranahan’s blog, where he announces his idea to get everyone to blog about Brett Kimberlin, on Friday, May 25, 2012.
I can’t ask you to do this.  It’s not because of this peace order against me—Judge Johnson has made it clear that the peace order statute cannot forbid protected speech.  And this is protected speech.  But as much as we use the “I am Spartacus” concept in this situation I am the guy who really is Spartacus.  I’m Kirk Douglas, more or less.  Watch this clip again:
If you watch closely, the real Spartacus was ready to identify himself.  So he didn’t ask his fellow slaves to stand up beside him.  They just did.  So I’m not going to ask.  Perhaps the truly courageous thing would be to say, “No, don’t do this.”  But I won’t do that, either.  I’ll just say… decide for yourselves.

And if you are new to this blog and wondering what the heck this is all about, you can start here at this post in which I show how Brett Kimberlin attempted to frame me for a crime.  That’s where all of this started.  And then go to Robert Stacy McCain’s blog and see what is happening to him.

Update: A few more thoughts.  Obviously, the comparison is to Everyone Draw Mohammed Day (EDMD).  As you know, EDMD arose from the failure of the institutions that normally were supposed to stand up for freedom of speech.  First, our governments were supposed to intervene.  As our Declaration of Independence tells us, we have an inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  And it says something else that is crucial but often overlooked: “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men.”  In other words government exists not for its own benefit, but for the purpose of securing our sacred rights, not the least of which is freedom of expression, and freedom of religion.

And when our government failed to deal appropriately with the use of terrorist threats to silence others–saying they would murder anyone who dared to draw Mohammed–this was a failure of our government to perform one of its most basic functions.  And I thought, “well, at least the press will probably stand up against this.  After all, freedom of expression is what they are all about.”  But instead the press did not.  They refused to show the cartoons in the Danish cartoon controversy, even though basic reporting almost demanded it.  Can you think of any other controversy over any other work of art (defined loosely), where they didn’t start by showing you the item that is creating all the fuss?  Whether you are talking about the infamous Piss Christ or the painting of the Holy Virgin Mary made with elephant dung, they always showed you the artwork in question.  Here is one example and here is another. But suddenly in this case, no one was willing to show the cartoons even in a news story.  I even saw a shameful article on Cnn, where they showed one of the Mohammed cartoons but blurred out Mohammed himself, which meant that they showed a blurry piece of paper on television.  I mean, why bother?  So the institutional press failed us.

So We the People had to step up.  But I always felt it was a second-best solution.  The best would be for the Federal Government to have done its duty, but it didn’t.  And the reason why it was a “second best” solution, is that EDMD necessarily offended the vast majority of Muslims who 1) hate terrorism, 2) love freedom of speech and religion, but also 3) don’t enjoy seeing their prophet insulted.  I said to them that the offense to their reasonable sensibilities was collateral damage that sadly we could not avoid as we secured our God-given (or perhaps Allah-given) right to choose what we say and believe freely.  It was a dilemma that led people of good conscience who probably normally would have supported EDMD to refuse to do so, such as James Taranto and Ann Althouse.  And if someone had another solution that didn’t offend those good Muslims and still protected our sacred freedoms, I would have happily done that.

(I mean I suppose vigilantism would have worked, but I am opposed to that.)

And that is the beautiful part of this current protest.  The only person who is offended, is the person actually attempting to suppress free speech.

And by the way, if you don’t currently have a blog, I will point out that Blogger, the interface I am using, is free, and easy enough to use that even a lawyer can use it!  I’m not going to ask you to do this, but I will point out that therefore anyone could create a simple blog that day, and write a simple thing.  Hundreds, maybe even thousands of regular people could debut their blog this Friday.  And maybe you will enjoy speaking your mind as much as I do.

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.
