The original entry this article is based on was one of twenty-one deleted due to a court order. One sentence was the reason. That has been removed. I've also taken this as an opportunity to spiffy up the original which was in essence a tribute to Dave Weintraub of DFQ fame. But first here is an update on the latest Kimberlin news.
The only change in my blogging is that I've stopped getting too personal in regards to Brett Kimberlin and am humbly attempting to be more journalistic.
Since coming to terms with being an introvert, I am no longer in any psychic pain. I used to get angry or distressed and not understand why. Now I do. It's a long story better left to either a future entry, or bugger off, it's none of ye business!
I continue to get cyberstalked and cybersmeared. I continue to get harrassed by Brett Kimberlin. It didn't just end with his slandering of me in court on November 14th.
Judge Jordan did not say I could no longer blog on Brett Kimberlin, the case, etc.. In fact, he stressed because he values freedom of speech, he couldn't order that.
Judge Richard E. Jordan:
Ordered: that the Defendant is herby enjoined permanently from engaging in tortuous conduct constituting defamation of or interference with business relations of the Plaintiff.Kimberlin has just filed a "Motion to Find Defendant In Contempt." Here are some excerpts.
The Court told Defendant that the Court was issuing a Permanent Injunction against Defendant. Despite the Court's Order and statements in Court, Defendant using the name Socrates, immediately upon return to Massachusetts began posting defamatory statements not only about Plaintiff but also about the Court.Cry me a river!
Attached is exhibit A is a series of blog posts from Defendant dated Tuesday, November 15, 2011.
"Basically, Kimberlin had argued that my posting about him as a confidence man, perjurer, murder suspect, drug smuggler, etc. was a form of cyberstalking. Yet, those things are all facts that had already been printed by mainstream media and previous court documents."
Clearly, Defendant has no intention of ceasing his harassment of Plaintiff. He has no intention of complying with the Court's permanent injunction.
WHEREFORE, Plaintiff moves the Court to find Defendant in contempt of Court and impose fines and imprisonment against him, and any other relief the Court finds appropriate.
Without further ado, here's the rewrite of one of my deleted entries.
Weintraub Versus Moulitsas; One respected the other not so much.
The Indictment of Markos C.A. Moulitsas

by Francis Holland
affectionately known as
Dave from Queens or DFQ
First, here's some backstory. In February 2009, I emailed Number5, a Daily Kos blogger. I had been given the heave-ho. Number5 had been my only ally. He had some mojo juice in the tank and was able to correct some tag abuse on my diaries. I wanted to thank him.
Larisa Alexandrovna and MajorFlaw (DFQ's nemesis) were in high powered KosKop form. I played fair, but they were determined to belittle the messenger.
Number5 would later tell me he was a roommate of legendary Kos blogger Anonymous Army. I think they might be one and the same, but that's water under the bridge. AA had been quite adept with exposing inconsistencies pumped out by "leftist" personalities such as Larry Johnson, Jason Leopold, Brad Friedman, and many others. He called them something like The Lefty Liars Club.
Dave Weintraub developed that sort of trollbusting schtick much later in his blogging career. Before then he was one of the best political bloggers. He was a hardcore Democrat but not a so-called DINO. He also did something called street theatre. We'll get to that in a bit.
Dave was one of the last lefty bloggers on Earth to realise DKos is a disinformation pit with unfair moderating. That's because he was actually, uhm, doing good activism as a blogger. It was only after MajorFlaw (Michael Fingerit) singled him out for cybersmears via his vigilante crew the UGOG's (The Usual Group of Grownups), that Dave entered into the realm of what is now known as socratisation. p:>
I mentioned Number5 above, because he's the one who turned me on to checking into Dave from Queens.
Dave Weintraub ended up doing some incredible cybersleuthing. He discovered proof of the UGOG's existence and exposed them. I won't reinvent that wheel. His davefromqueens.com website is currently still available for perusal.
I also have a copy of the UGOG files (a saved copy of their website), if anyone is interested. The UGOG's thought they were hidden or so obscure no one would find them. One day Dave followed a referral url to his website, and that's how he found them.
I only knew Dave briefly. I dropped a few posts on his blog. I told him my concerns about Larisa Alexandrovna. He told me he wasn't aware of what I was talking of, but that he'd give me the chance to state my case. He was that cool a dude.
Dave told me to check out his article, Exposed: Why Kos Is Bad For Democrats
It's pretty good. Newbies and fence-sitters should definitely take a looksie.
Dave was a humble man. Even after single-handedly exposing the Moulitsas sanctioned KosKopper/UGOG unit, he showed regret for not having spoken up for Hillary Clinton supporters unfairly purged from Daily Kos. He also said this:
Thanks to you and countless others who have spoken out about the truth about DailyKos long before I learned about it.Dave might have been late to becoming aware of the fake lefty ways of Daily Kos, but he certainly made up for that in a short period of time. God bless Dave Weintraub, and may he rest in peace.
Personally, I think the Obamabots versus Shrillaries thingie was a contrived script devised by insidious forces. There is no logical explanation for why any sincere Obama or Hillary supporter would have thrown the other side so forcefully under the bus.
Think of the tactics of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove. Reflect on the concept of divide and conquer. Consider how Markos Moulitsas used to support Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr.. Check out Kos' homophobic column written while in college to go with his currently being a strong supporter of the CIA. Look for his attacks on Caroline Kennedy. Search out Markos Moulitsas' historic association with payola type schemes.
Dave was very late to figuring out Daily Kos. He was a late bloomer in realising democratic processes are non-existent at that once powerful DINO (Democrat in name only) infested website. Nonetheless, Dave was the one who put the final dagger into DKos' credibility. Well-played, Mr. Bond (DFQ).
Let's take a trip back in payola time. (excerpt)
THE BLOGOSPHERE'S SMOKE-FILLED BACKROOM:
by Jason Zengerle
June 21st, 2006
Are Jerome Armstrong and Markos Moulitsas (of the famous Daily Kos) engaged in a pay-for-play scheme in which politicians who hire Armstrong as a consultant get the support of Kos? That's the question that's been bouncing around the blogosphere ever since The New York Times's Chris Suellentrop broke the news last Friday about a 2000 run-in Armstrong had with the Securities and Exchange Commission over alleged stock touting. But Armstrong, Kos, and other big-time liberal bloggers have almost entirely ignored the issue, which is a bit surprising considering their tendency to rapidly respond to even the smallest criticism.If Markos Moulitsas told the truth about his involvement with the CIA, it does appear he was on their payroll while running Daily Kos.
Why the strange silence in the face of such damning allegations? Well, I think we now know the answer. It's a deliberate strategy orchestrated by Kos. TNR obtained a missive Kos sent earlier this week to "Townhouse," a private email list comprising elite liberal bloggers, including Jane Hamsher, Matt Stoller, and Christy Hardin Smith. And what was Kos's message to this group that secretly plots strategy in the digital equivalent of a smoke-filled backroom? Stay mum! He wrote (emphasis added below):...And Jerome's case, if it could be aired out, is a non-story (he was a poor grad student at the time so he settled because he had no money). Jerome can't talk about it now since the case is not fully closed. But once it is, he'll go on the offensive. That should be a couple of months off....
This story will percolate in wingnut circles until then, but I haven't gotten a single serious media call about it yet. Not one. So far, this story isn't making the jump to the traditional media, and we shouldn't do anything to help make that happen.
My request to you guys is that you ignore this for now. It would make my life easier if we can confine the story. Then, once Jerome can speak and defend himself, then I'll go on the offensive (which is when I would file any lawsuits) and anyone can pile on. If any of us blog on this right now, we fuel the story. Let's starve it of oxygen. And without the "he said, she said" element to the story, you know political journalists are paralyzed into inaction.
P.S. Was Armstrong really, as Kos claims, a "poor grad student" when he settled with the SEC? Armstrong agreed to the settlement in December 2003. That was eleven months after he and Kos started their political consulting business and six months after the two were hired by the Dean campaign at a rate of $3,000 a month.
I sincerely believe Markos Moulitsas Zuniga does have family ties to people associated with the death squad part of El Salvadoran history. Though obviously he was clearly too young to have been involved with any of that. In some countries, the gulf between rich and poor is very wide. Moulitsas was born into the minority wealthy side of El Salvador.
I believe Moulitsas has been an opportunist akin to an Arianna Huffington. They both saw which way the wind was blowing. That, imho, explains their sudden transformations from being conservatives to so-called liberals. Ka-ching!
According to Moulitsas' words himself, he was about to sign a CIA contract to work for clandestine operations. He says he instead made the decision to work for Howard Dean. Check out what he said for yourselves. Check out the timeline. And for those who have slammed Francis Holland, shame on friggen you!

The CIA and the Media

This has been a tale of two bloggers, one with integrity and the other, imho, with none. Dave Weintraub was a real progressive activist. Moulitsas? Get out of town!
McCain's Town Hall Was A Farce, I Was There.
Fri Jun 13, 2008
(long excerpt) Yesterday, I drove to New Jersey, quietly stood on line which ushered me into the Community College Auditorium in Pemberton, picked a good spot on the third level of benches, pretended to clap and applaud when John McCain said stupid things which I didn't agree with, all with the hopes of being called on by one of the McCain staffers holding a microphone. I was oh so close. I was next on the other side of the auditorium when McCain abruptly ended the supposedly open town hall where he allegedly takes tough questions after 1 questioner, who only got called on because his nine year old kid was next to him, asked McCain about Bin Laden.Dave was clearly not a hippie. Nonetheless, he was definitely a pure liberal against illegal wars and into fighting on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Regular Guy.
McCain's so called town halls are actually rallies hosted by the local Republican Party. The host, Chris Myers, identified himself as a local leader and claimed that New Jersey is going to go red because of the 2000 people in the gym. (About 1% of us were Obama supporters, someone held a sign up at the end, no one interrupted McCain's speech.) However if McCain can't fill a small gym in his only trip to New Jersey this month, his candidacy is in trouble.
The seating was staged. There were about 20 people with Veteran's hats and all were seated directly in line with McCain's podium in the front and back. Your cameras from home would make it appear that half the people there were veterans. In reality it was about 1%. Mixed into the Veterans was one angry woman who had a sign claiming she was a Hillary supporter voting McCain. This one sign was placed directly in the spot where the cameras were most likely to pick it up. She was planted there. It also appears that there was one singular woman who pulled the same stunt Thursday night at the so called Fox News McCain town hall meeting in New York. These people aren't real Clinton supporters, this too is staged.
The event began with the Pledge of Allegiance and an invocation. In a multicultural country, an invocation is kind of creepy. The latter is not exactly inclusive but it appeared that all cameras were directed off during the invocation so that this non inclusive invocation could not be shown.
Then, all the local politicians getting stage time, including the Congressman in the area, and the Jersey candidates for the House and Senate. Dick Zimmer, the former Congressman running against Frank Lautenberg, was received tepidly by what should have been a friendly crowd. People in Jersey know what a nasty louse Dick Zimmer truly is.
Then Joe Lieberman took the stage claiming he was a Democrat supporting John McCain while taking pot shots at Obama in vague terms. Joe is no Democrat. Then it was Tom Kean, the whitewasher of the 9/11 committee, trying to give McCain credit for the commission which McCain and Republicans have sandbagged the American people with. Then John McCain took the stage.
McCain spoke for about thirty minutes. He praised people. It was hysterical when McCain praised Lieberman as helping him win New Hampshire. Lieberman started smirking, lifting his head smugly, while bearing a Cheshire cat grin as if Lieberman was somehow important and relevant. Smugness and Vanity would be understatements. Joe Lieberman and John McCain have been big reasons why Washington has failed the American people for the past 30 years so the more irrelevant they are, the better off the American people are.
McCain fumbled through his sound bites all while claiming that people are tired of sound bites. McCain used harsh and partisan rhetoric all while claiming that this needs to change. Large sections of McCain's audience booed when McCain was misrepresenting Obama's position but McCain of course calls for civil dialogue while never denouncing the uncivil nature of his supporters. Shockingly he claimed he did not know what climate change was in 2000 but has since read up on it. He foolishly claims that Iraq is the central focus on the War on Terror merely because David Petraeus says so. McCain said that the Obama camp is going to try and claim that he is for privatizing Social Security and that this is untrue. He then claimed he was against privatizing Social Security while in the very next sentence, proposing a policy that was, in effect, privatizing Social Security. Now there's video showing McCain supporting the privatization of Social Security in 2004 despite McCain saying that he's never supported it. McCain lies at the drop of a hat. It's obvious to most people. This was one of McCain's big gaffes today.
McCain also doesn't understand habeas corpus. He claimed the recent 5-4 decision on detainees was perhaps the worst in history because they are "enemy combatants." John McCain doesn't understand that many of the people in Guantanamo are at best "accused enemy combatants." He also seem confused between habeas corpus and tort remedies. But under this McCain Doctrine, any person in the world could be thrown in prison by John McCain merely because John McCain labels him a terrorist. There are some nefarious names throughout history that held the same view.
It was laughable when McCain tried to talk about education. He was ill informed and elitist. First it was the usual gobbly-gook about private schools and school choice, which of course isn't school choice at all. Then McCain had the audacity to equate him and Cindy sending their kids to super rich, super well funded private schools as if everybody would have access to this. It was bizarre.
McCain has his usual sound bites and the event was craftily staged. Approximately 200 people were hand selected ahead of time to be in a separate VIP area behind McCain and in front of McCain. This was a campaign rally not a town hall meeting and this needs to be emphasized.
Next came the questions and answers. McCain had said how much he loves to do town hall meetings because he likes to answer tough questions......
Darn, I wish he was around to go for a Guinness. I sure as heck would have tried to become his friend. He was a great man.
The below photo was from the Connecticut Post.
The caption says,(above excerpt from How the Connecticut Post Tried To Smear Bushman by: bigdavefromqueens Tue Oct 16, 2007)Wearing a George Bush mask, an anti-war protestor who would only identify himself as Dave W. from Queens, N.Y. confronts Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, as he arrives for a fundraiser in downtown Milford for Milford Mayor James Richetelli, a Republican.
Dave was attacked with some of the worst defamation I've ever seen on the internet. He was attacked by self-proclaimed leftists who should have embraced him rather than try to tear him apart.
Barbara Morrill and Scout Finch, who both recommended the above post, were or still are DKos administrators. "Elise" must have had a lot of negative chutzpah to post that Dave was an asshole just after he had died. Unless someone is Hitler or similar, it is never justifiable to speak badly of the dead.
There is too much hate speech on alleged "progressive" domains. Dave referred to Markos Moulitsas and his Kos Kops as turn-off trolls. He was correct. It's as if insidious forces do not want pure Democrats with idealistic democratic values to succeed. At a minimum, nasty people such as Zuniga and his crones are making a buck off of the Democratic label with little or no regard for such things as ending illegal wars, helping out the poor, ensuring equal schools, etc..
This should come as no surprise, for Markos Moulitsas Zuniga was a rightwinger whose historical family roots tie him to the El Salvadoran oligarchy. In the past, Markos has been a big supporter of Ronald Reagan, homophobia, and working for individual campaigns based on personal goals centered around monetary objectives and self-promotion.
Who you gonna believe in- a true progressive like Dave or UGOG KosKops like Michael Fingerit, Lloyd Lachow, and Michael Bouldin? Who you gonna believe in- an honest Democrat like DaveFromQueens or a status quo, mediocre sycophant like Barbara Morrill? Who you gonna believe in- a devoted, principled activist like Dave or a supporter of the CIA? Whom does Markos Moulitsas Zuniga think he's fooling parading around like a progressive, when he is really just another run of the mill fake lefty, whose fifteen minutes of fame have passed?
