Convicted Terrorist Brett Kimberlin and the Left’s Political (and Criminal) Intimidation Network

by Donald Douglas on Saturday, May 26th, 2012

This is article 136 of 339 in the topic Criminal Activity

I read Aaron Worthing’s book-length blog post last night: “How Brett Kimberlin Tried to Frame Me for a Crime (And How You Can Help!).”

This no doubt sets the record for the longest blog post ever written. And I doubt I would have spent the time on it (it’s a 28,000 word essay, with tons of embedded court filings and YouTube videos) but Aaron’s trials hit terribly close to home (more on that below). The essay is now broken up into parts (linked here), although if you let the full post load into your browser, after a couple of minutes you should be able to scroll up and down without difficulty. (I’m using Google Chrome.)

There’s also a nice summary from Dan Collins at Conservative Commune: “Speedway Bomber Brett Kimberlin Harassed, Tried to Frame Blogger Aaron Worthing.”

Brett Kimberlin

Readers may remember Aaron from his blogging turn at Patterico’s Pontifications. It turns out his real name is Aaron Walker. He’s an attorney. Some time back he blogged some basic factual information on Brett Kimberlin. Kimberlin was convicted of a series of bomb attacks in 1981. One of his victims, Carl DeLong, later committed suicide as a direct result of his injuries in the attack. After blogging about him, Worthing was targeted by Kimberlin for a vicious and literally deranged campaign of political and legal stalking and harassment. Again, folks have to read the full post to understand how in-depth this campaign was. Both Worthing and his wife were fired from their jobs (their boss feared a terrorist attack on their place of business).

But what’s especially interesting is how much support Kimberlin had on the hard-left progressive community. Robert Stacy McCain’s been reporting on that angle: “Convicted Terrorist Brett Kimberlin Received $70,000 From Tides Foundation, $10,000 From Streisand, $20,000 from John Kerry’s Wife,” and “Who Warned Us About Brett Kimberlin?

Robert writes, for example:

The disclosure of Kimberlin’s funding from prestigious liberals matters, because of this convicted criminal’s apparently close connections to other key figures in the progressive online community, not only his business partnership with Brad Friedman, but also his claims to be an “associate” of Democrat political consultant Neal Rauhauser.

This Rauhauser character was also directly involved in the legal attacks on Worthing, but you’ll have to go back and start from the beginning to get the full handle on this stuff. At this point I just want to remind people of the attacks on my workplace employment by Scott Eric Kaufman and Carl Salonen. These two are part of the big online community organized by Lawyers, Guns and Money and Sadly No! The folks who are regulars there, as either participants in the harassment or readers in the community, go all the way from people like Professor Charli Carpenter of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to the racist, anti-Christian bigot TBogg of Firedoglake. (And hate-blogger Walter James Casper, as readers will recall, was a longtime ringleader for the attacks against me.)

I suppose I was lucky in a sense. I was able to defend myself against the malicious attacks from this mob without too much personal cost, financially and emotionally. And of course my employment is safe. But make no mistake: The goal of these progressive cowards was to have me fired.

Election Year Reality and Insanity

by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

This is article 460 of 1300 in the topic 2012 Elections

There is something about an election year that seems to bring out the worst in a lot of people. Having settled on a candidate, they defame the opponents and the motives of those that support them. This is greatly aided by the charges that fly backward and forward among the primary candidates themselves. It’s not pretty, but it is the way a democracy works.

A conspiracy theory I keep hearing and reading is that Obama will create “an emergency” and declare martial law, putting himself in complete charge. I keep telling people that the nation is filled with millions of people who have taken an oath to protect and preserve the Constitution and they run the gamut from everyone who ever served in the military to law enforcement personnel, to members of the Secret Service. The likelihood that all would stand aside and let Obama have his way is, to my mind, very small.

All this is testimony to the growing fears about Barack Hussein Obama and there is ample evidence for concern as he seems to have very little regard for the Constitution and a decidedly Leftist approach to politics and governance.

By contrast, I have seen so much factual information; hard cold data, to suggest Obama not only won’t get elected, but will likely suffer a historic defeat. To keep the insanity at bay, it would be a good idea to get familiar with some of it.

Over at Big Government.com, Wynton Hall authored “It’s the Math, Stupid! Devastating Facts About 2012.”  With a great big hat tip to him, here they are:

1. Every day, the U.S. government takes in $6 billion and spends $10 billion. This means that every day the federal government spends $4 billion more dollars than it has.

2. The real unemployment rate is a jaw-dropping 11 percent.

3. Every fifth man you pass on your way to work is now out of work.

4. College graduates are now 34% less likely to find a job under Obama than they were under President George W. Bush.

5, Every seventh person you pass on the sidewalk now relies on food stamps.

6. The ravages of the Obama economy now mean that more Americans live under the federal poverty line than at any time in U.S. history since records have been kept.

7. Under President Barack Obama, every fifth child in America now lives in poverty.

No one gets reelected with that level of misery extent in the nation. The days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt are long gone. This is the age of Fox News and the Internet.

Karl Rove, whom George W. Bush called “the architect” for his political acumen, took note of Obama’s inclination to link himself to FDR and to Truman. “In many ways,” Rove wrote in December, “his situation is significantly different than that of his Democrat predecessors. For one thing, a year out from the 1948 election, Gallup measured Mr. Truman’s job approval rating at 54%, whereas Mr. Obama’s is 43%–substantially lower than any president who has won re-election.”

Let me repeat that. “Substantially lower than any president who has won re-election.”

Obama may run against a “do-nothing Congress” as Truman did, but today’s House of Representatives, controlled by Republicans, has been active enough to produce 29 bills intended to spur economic growth.

Illegal Immigration – A Huge Campaign Issue; Don’t Ignore It

by Jerry McConnell on Saturday, December 31st, 2011

This is article 235 of 465 in the topic Immigration

And by all means, don’t let the candidates dance around and over their positions on this very important issue.  Many of them would be happy to avoid questions on what they feel about it, but it is big enough to affect every last one of us who are taxpaying citizens of this great country. Those that have avoided major questions on illegal immigration should feel the heat in the Iowa caucuses on this coming Tuesday.

In this connection, I would like to alert the voters of America to a very exceptional website that constantly provides outstanding information regarding one of the very most important issues to all Americans – illegal immigration and where the political forces stand either for or against it. That website is known very simply as “NumbersUSA.com”.

A very large number of my readers are already knowledgeable of this very worthy group of patriots, led by their Executive Director, Roy Beck.  In this column, thanks to publication by the highly conservative operators of Canada Free Press, I hope to bring attention to many others who have not benefited from the sage advice and factual information which can be obtained from regular visits to Beck’s site and easily accessible active participation in the efforts to get all of our elected officials informed and involved in what is to me, one of the singly most important issues that directly affects not only the size of our government but government spending, the size of our tax liabilities and the numbers of jobs available, or as is currently country-crippling, the immensely sizeable lack thereof.

The most recent newsletter from Numbers. was published on their website for the “Week of December 30” on the issue, “State Successes Highlight 2011 for NumbersUSA Activists” detailing the facts that 2011 was “a record year for passing state level immigration enforcement legislation.”

The most noteworthy and the toughest enforcement law ever passed was that of HB56 signed into law by Georgia Governor Robert Bentley in June 2011,  the website reported.  In other less broad enforcement, many other states were also successful.  It was also reported that more than 20 other states were active in laws with measures to remove incentives that promoted illegal immigration.

E-verify laws were passed and “beefed up” by several states such as Virginia and Arizona along with Utah, Indiana and Georgia.  These passed bills gave police powers to check immigration status including the use of the SAVE (Systematic Alien Verifications for Entitlements) system to check eligibility for public benefits.

An interesting as well as informative feature of the NumbersUSA.com website is a graphic chart that gives each of the contentious presidential candidates an alphabetical rating of their stances on the immigration issue from “A” to “F”.  In the very latest of these alpha ratings for the “2012 Presidential Hopefuls Immigration Stances” not one candidate got the ever-desired pinnacle rating of “A”; however, two of the contestants dropped all the way to the cellar-dwelling and abhorred “F” rating.

Is Obama Constitutionally Qualified to Serve As Our President, Or Is He a Fraud?

by Jerry McConnell on Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

This is article 45 of 81 in the topic Presidential Eligiblity

For the past six months, retired Army Colonel Lawrence Sellin has been writing columns here at Canada Free Press (CFP), averaging around three per week. His columns have been studiously focused on the subject of Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States.

Colonel Sellin’s objective seemingly has been to provide enough factual information on the subject for public discussion and opinion, sprinkled with many personal conclusions to determine Obama’s IN-eligibility to serve in that office.

Sellin’s columns in CFP are not alone in this regard with several other columnists, myself included, for the past few years, but his columns have been gathering an abundance of comments and questions from CFP readers which mainly result in posing the question, “What can we do about it?”

Below are write-in responses to Sellin’s columns as provided by readers to CFP. The names have been omitted but are available online at the CFP website in the ‘Comments’ section of Sellin’s column:

“I am under the impression only Congress can start impeachment proceedings against president for any reason. So how now do we (the citizens) hold our member of Congress to their oath to the constitution to pursue this actively and immediately. Facts are facts. They choose not to pursue this how do we hold them accountable?”

“The question of the day is: WHAT, oh WHAT can we do to the rid the country of this illegitimate fool that all the fools in Congress seem to be ignorant of??”

“ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE VIOLATED THEIR OATHS OF OFFICE. They are all complicit and guilty as hell in perpetrating this treasonous hoax. Nothing will be done about this mess until we remove from office ALL the corrupt, career politicians who are now running both major parties and the Legislative Branch.”

“I just don’t understand why no one has done anything about him. Isn’t there a good man, or woman, out there anywhere that would have the ‘balls’ to do what is right. If I had the money and prestige, I would do it! Why don’t you do something? I am so tired of listening to this fake president lie with every word he speaks. And so tired of no one doing anything about it!”

“Yes, of course all members of Congress and the Senate have violated their oaths of office. Everyone knows Obama is not eligible. All the media people know this. The question is why are people going along with this hoax?”

“Who is going to uncover this? Who is going to bring it to justice? Is someone actually doing something about it?”

“Ron Paul’s current stand on government has some decent opinions, however, he was a member of the Congress during Obama’s run-up to the campaign, his campaign and his nomination, his election, his swearing-in and his first 2 and 1/2 years in office – and like all other members of the Congress Ron Paul did not publicly question Obama’s credentials.”

As you can see, the questions cover a wide area of uncertainty in the public’s collective minds regarding who, what, where, and when will anything be done to provide the final determination of Obama’s eligibility or even who will officially make the decision as to his guilt or innocence of the presumed charge of ineligibility to hold the office of POTUS.

God and Country BANNED in public schools

by Lloyd Marcus on Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Remember the hit song by Marvin Gaye, “What’s Going On”? Patriots, what the heck is going on with U.S. public schools and our kids? There is a deliberate effort to diminish our children’s respect for God, country, freedom, liberty and our culture. The schools are BANNING, in essence, Christianity, patriotism and individualism.

Just a few examples:

U.S. Open, NBC cuts ‘Under God’ from Pledge of Allegiance
http://bit.ly/mhp3ca

American Flag Art Banned in classroom

http://bit.ly/jbWdMW

Bible Banned From School
http://bit.ly/jg43gB

Teens Banned From High School Graduation for Wearing Military Sash
http://bit.ly/mPBNap

High school Valedictorian, Banned from saying “How God changed my life” in his speech. http://bit.ly/mBxha7

Meanwhile, celebrating Gay and Lesbian Pride Day is considered an important part of the public school curriculum. http://bit.ly/m5qcqw (This video will blow you away!)

While I can not confirm how wide spread, I do know many public schools are filling our kids’ minds with a belief system opposite of their parents. The public schools’ “Operation Dumb Them Down” is step one in preparing our children to drink their socialist/globalist kool-aid.

Karen Schoen, a former teacher wrote…

“In the 60-70’s The Anti-War, Anti America, anti-family, anti-religion youth were prompted into the teaching profession as a way to beat the draft. Teaching was a draft exempt profession.

We (myself included) learned the works of Marx and Dewey and how to get this message to our students.

We were taught to lie, use psychology, break down the family, separate children, promote the environment, and treat boredom with drugs.

We were taught to use subliminal messaging to instill ideas not factual information, this is called indoctrination.

We were also taught divide and conquer techniques and to discuss class warfare pitting one group against the other. (Obama is a master at this technique. He demon-izes achievers.)

I taught the worst classes in Brooklyn with over 35 kids in a class and my students sat on the stage to get honors at graduation.

It is the curriculum, that is the only problem. I fought my principal about the failing of this new curriculum until I had to leave.

Reading, math, writing, critical thinking, logic, reason and factual information has been stripped out of our schools.

Factual information regarding American history, civics, economics, nationalism, family values, religion are no longer found in schools.

Cognitive thinking through consensus is now the norm.

The goal is dumb students=dumb citizens = dumb legislators who will pass horrific bills without reading them.

As you know the poor and minorities will be the biggest losers as generation upon generation will be nothing more than indentured servants working for crumbs doled out to them by the government through continued generations of people on entitlements. People are taught to be entitled and accept their minimal slot in life. (Witnessing the devastated lives and early deaths of several of my relatives, I can testify about the tragic consequences of government replacing daddy in the black family.)

It is no surprise there is no outrage on the debt, these schools are teaching that the more debt you have the more prominent you are…”

Parroting Marvin Gaye, I ask, “What’s going on”? Answer: the public school agenda is to steal generations of our children turning them into useful idiots.
