A major disinfo network has been exposed. Whether it has been for grifting and/or cointelpro-like purposes is up for debate.
Brad Friedman and Brett Kimberlin can be directly connected to Andy Stephenson. Andy can be directly tied to the spreading of tinfoil. He can also be tied directly to Jeff Wells of Rigorous Intuition. Jeff is affiliated with Tinoire of Progressive Independent. PI has a direct affiliation with Velvet Revolution. So one can see these ties do form a complete circle.
Tinoire is directly tied to Michael Rivero. He is tied to Alex Jones and various Joo hating bloggers and domains. This is only the tip of the iceberg. E.G., We can also tie the Lyndon Larouche political conspiracy cult to Rivero and Jones through Webster Tarpley.
Brad's been quite the busy beaver the last couple days. He's been covering the special Senate election in Massachusetts for Ted Kennedy's seat. He's also come up with additional promotion for the Michael Connell threatened by Karl Rove hoax.
EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: Tragic Story of Mike Connell, Bush/Rove/GOP IT Guru, Breaks in Maxim
There are some interesting posts in the comment area. I want to declare that none of them are mine, although they appear to look like they could be. You see, whenever anyone confronts these guys with their hoaxes, they tend to be spun as the same lone troll. Agent99 of BradBlog has posted that myself and the_last_name_left are the same person. That has happened to us at four separate blogs- the now defunct WRH (Rivero) forum, Tinoire's Progressive Independent, and Wells' Rigorous Intuition.
I have been accused by Larisa Alexandrovna and others of being Anonymous Army, Creeksneakers2, Diebold, and Troubleinwinter. Calling critics lone sock puppet trolls is a consistent tactic used by these buggers. It is always done with no proof, as the allegations have been untrue.

FAA- Tracking the flight it was at ice alt the entire path from MD to Cleveland. The conditions change over the lake and apporach over little mountain Ohio his flight path.
Interview with first responders on scene indicated a large fule dispersion on fire consistant with a high speed crash not an internal elxplsion.
The probability of iceing conditions and not evident till approach from buildup was very high.
That post brought on much ridicule.
This next one is probably too current, and perhaps we need to wait if it too is attacked. To repeat, none of these posters were me, and I will never post on BradBlog again. It's not worth the hassle.

Too bad it was not published in a magazine of consequence!
I guess it was a false alarm of thinking there was any kind of fake socrates being produced.
I kind of like the fact that these people are still running with their hoax. Everything eventually comes out in the wash. This is about themselves providing their own rope to destroy their credibility. We saw previously how Larisa Alexandrovna soiled her own in regards to this topic.
Massachusetts' Special Senate Seat Election

From an earlier BradBlog related "article"
Easily Hacked Diebold Systems to Decide 'Toss-Up' U.S. Senate Special Election in MA on Tuesday
My full coverage is now posted at Upstate NY's Right-leaning Gouverneur Times...
Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you. Brad is writing for a right wing rag out of New York called the Gouveneur Times. (Shades of Bev Harris going to the Free Republic after alienating the progressive, sane Democratic leaning people who were the bulk of her support.)
Maybe I'm wrong here. I'm no expert on Diebold. But I thought they changed their name. Did they change it back? Why is Brad still calling them Diebold? This is what he posted back in 2007.
Andy Stephenson like Cliff Arnebeck wasn't just a colleague of BradBlog happening to run across one another through being involved with the same issues. Andy worked for Velvet Revolution.

Or check out what the Velvet Revolution posted. I'd give the link, but Velvet Revolution is a mess. This should make it easier for ye.
Brad Friedman, the face of Brett Kimberlin Productions.
Brad's desperate to maintain the facade of credibility. He likes to say he is published by The Guardian. What he doesn't emphasise is that he is published by their Arianna Huffington type section called Comment is Free. He has come up with a new plug, very similar in nature. Now he wants people to believe he is being praised by The New York Times!
The Times Company Acquires About.com for $410 Million

Published: February 18, 2005
The New York Times Company announced yesterday that it would acquire About Inc. and its Web site, About.com, from Primedia Inc. for $410 million....
Should we call the Boston baseball team the New York Times Red Sox? They own or used to own shares in the team.
I am laughing the fock out loud!!!
Let's go back to the new Michael Connell BradBlog article. In the comment section, TomR asked Brad,
Worrall reports that a "deep throat" document anonymously sent to Connell's family and a number of FBI agents last year, purporting to be an "after action report" by a black ops agent tasked with sabotaging Connell's plane...
Brad, have you and/or Worrall personally seen this report?
Brad's reply? One word. Yes. Who does he think he is, Marv Albert?
Anyway, I'm surprised Brad didn't explain that Brett Kimberlin Productions, who he is employed by, is the fricken sassafrassa source!
Exclusive: Mike Connell's Family Copes With His Mysterious Death, Tipsters, Legal Options
Those close to the case believe the person behind the memo is a real informant with inside knowledge about Connell's plane crash. There are a number of Intelligence officials looking into it, including the FBI. The FBI field agent in charge of the case, Jack Vickery, did not return my calls. But Cliff Arnebeck, the prosecuting attorney in the case and the one who deposed Mike Connell last November, issued the following statement:We received copies of the "deep throat" letter and redacted report of a jackal that "is not supposed to exist." We passed on to the FBI this and other information we have relevant to the matter. Our impression is that the FBI is doing its job of investigating specific allegations regarding the assassination of a vital witness in our federal election fraud case.
VR's attorney, Cliff Arnebeck, notified the United States Attorney General , Ohio law enforcement and the federal court about these threats and insisted that Mr. Connell be placed in protective custody.
Wow, just wow.
