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?

Sarah Palin Skewers Democrat Media Complex, Praises New Media

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/06/17

We are the Army of Davids fighting the Democrat Party’s Mainstream Media. And Sarah Palin considers herself one of us, not our leader. That’s a good thing, because we don’t like us no leader people. We’re not Democrat lemmings.

I got this video through Hot Air, who got it through Right Scoop.


 

Sarah mentioned SWATting, directly talking about certain people who are doing everything they can — even outside the law — to silence the Army of Davids who are vigorously speaking the Truth. And if you pay any attention at all to Conservative blogs (and a small handful of Liberal blogs (Presperocity/Seth Allen. Never forget that Socialist is also a target by someone who shall not be named *cough*BrettKimberlin*cough* who has no use for the rule of law)), you know what I’m talking about.

I intend to write more regarding the video later if I don’t get too lazy. I’m nearing the end of a busy work schedule.

#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.

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.

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.

My Local Police Department Doesn’t Know What SWATting Is

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/28

I called my local police department’s non-emergency line today. I talked to 3 different people, none of whom had ever heard of the term SWATting, and none of whom had ever heard of Brett Kimberlin. My local police department is responsible for protecting over 100,000 people from criminals. And they were totally unaware.

Now, I’m very much a micro-blog, so Kimberlin and crew are far less likely to try to SWAT me. But I am actively republishing articles written by two attorneys — one of them an assistant District Attorney in Los Angeles County — who are being actively intimidated and harassed, one of whom (the ADA) had been SWATted, so that does increase my risk factor somewhat.

But I let the local Law Enforcement know in advance, just in case.

For more information, check out Patterico’s Pontifications, Red State, Hot Air, and Michelle Malkin.

UPDATE
After having written this brief article, Aaron Walker, the Virginia Attorney who blogs by the name of Aaron Worthing, got SWATted.
