Aaron Walker And Mandy Nagy Exposed

What follows is what took place in court in January of 2012. My comments are in bold. At the end, I will post screenshot proof Breitbart Cult leader Mandy Nagy either insanely believed I was working for Neal Rauhauser or was playing mind games with Ron Brynaert.

Disclaimer: This transcript was written to the best of my ability. Any minor errors I may have made were inadvertent. In my sincere opinion they would not have altered any meaning or the general significance of the proceeding.

Judge Rupp: Civil 339254 Kimberlin versus Seth Allen and you are?

BK: I'm Brett Kimberlin. [Rupp: Alright.]

AW: My name is Aaron Walker. I'm the blogger known as Aaron Worthing, and I have an emergency motion against Mr. Kimberlin for his gross misconduct in this case. I'd like to be heard

Rupp: Listen, I'm not. You're not here on this proceeding. [AW: I understand your honor.] So I'm not going to hear it.

AW: Your honour, he filed an improper motion before this court on Friday, and I had no notion until Saturday morning that he had done that. He has in a blatant attempt to stalk and oppress me

Rupp: Hold it. Hold it.

On the surface, Aaron Walker had a single reason to be at the hearing. This can be easily understood by reading his exchange with Judge Rupp. However, in order to buy this premise, one needs to assume Aaron Walker truly believed his life would be in jeopardy from terrorists, if his identity was made public.

AW: I'm sorry.

Rupp: First off, you don't have any right to be saying anything, [BK giggles] and you don't have a right to be laughing.

Aaron embedded the transcript of this hearing through scribd on his blog on May 17th, 2012. However, he only copied and pasted the parts of the hearing in which he spoke. He downplayed what I had done to defend myself and upgraded his non-role into something more than it was. There were also a few discrepancies I will point out along the way.

Rupp: There was a motion to withdraw as moot a question to compel the secret identity of Aaron Worthing, [AW: Yes] and then there's a Plaintiff's response to Aaron Worthing's motion to quash. And you're Mr. Worthing?

AW: Well I'm Aaron Walker, and I blogged as Mr. Worthing. Yes, that's correct.

Rupp: Why is, why- Are you requiring that he come to court today?

BK: Judge initially, he's an anononymous blogger who's been involved with the stalker.

I'm not a stalker. Kimberlin nor anyone else has ever proved I was. There are no felonies on my record. Nothing. Squat. I'm a college boy. No one has any proof at all I have used sock puppets and engaged in scripted fights on the internet. I cybersleuthed Brett Kimberlin, Brad Friedman, and other topics since 2006. I'm just a blogger who scooped this story over two years before the Breitbart Cult ever heard of it. They have been smearing me and attempting to steal the scoop and unfairly give ownership of it to Mandy Nagy.

Rupp: Why are you, why is he here?

BK: I didn't ask him to be here. He just foisted himself

Rupp: He says he's been summonsed.[AW: Well, no]

BK: He wasn't summonsed.

AW: If I may explain, your honor.

Rupp: Alright.

AW: He did actually initially ask me to testify today in his initial correspondence with me. If he's not interested in my testimony today, then I would ask why he has subpoenaed this court in order to obtain my identity.

Rupp: Well he withdr-

BK: I withdrew that

Rupp: It's been withdrawn.

AW: Yes I understand, but why did he do that in the first place?

Rupp: Well, it's been withdrawn. So he says withdrawn as moot.

AW: But your honour, if you look at what he has filed today, all he had to do in order to file that motion was tell the court he obtained my information. He did not even have to say my name. Instead, in this public document now he has put in my name. He has put in my home address. He has put my birth date. He has put the high school I went to. He put the fact that I dropped out of high school. He put the fact I received a ged, that I went to the University of North Texas. He went and put in the fact that I sued the law school admission council. He put in the fact that I was admitted to Yale Law School and graduated in the class of 2002. He put down my current job with my current employer and their address as well. His intent in doing this was so that it becomes a public record, so that he and his friends can put this out in public, so they can stalk and harass me. It is plain on the face of this. I would ask your honour that you swear him in and ask why he put all this unnecessary information in this file.

Rupp: Yeah, it's been withdrawn as moot.

AW: I'm talking about the motion to withdraw itself.

Rupp: Yeah, it's not, it's no longer in effect.

AW: But this is a public document, and his friends will then take this public document, this motion to withdraw as moot and put out all my information.

Rupp: Are you asking that this be sealed?

AW: I would like this to be sealed. I would like

Rupp: Any objection to having it sealed, Mr. Kimberlin?

BK: Judge, this

Rupp: Yes or no.

BK: Yes, I object.

Rupp: Why?

BK: Why?

Rupp: Yes why. Why should all this be a matter of public record?

BK: This man has engaged in stalking with the defendant in this case.

Rupp: Well, there's no order against him in this case.

BK: No there's no order against him in this case.

Rupp: So why is he a part of this case?

BK: He did it anonymously. Initially I wanted to call him as a witness, and then when I filed the motion to call him as a witness, he began trying the case on his blog. He filed every, he posted every motion on his blog. And kept accusing me of all kinds of terrible things on his blog, and he ridiculed me. He taunted me. He threatened me. He had people posting on his blog that I was a terrorist and a pedophile, and all this other stuff. And he engaged in unethical behaviour. He said that he represented the defendant in this case as an anonymous person. He can't, a lawyer cannot represent someone as an anonymous person. He asked to be identified. He went on his blog and said I am representing. I entered into an attorney-defendant privileged relationship with Seth Allen as Aaron Worthing. And he's not even a lawyer in this jurisdiction. He lives in Virginia. He can't represent somebody as a fake person as a pseudonym. And so he put himself out there to be identified. I mean if he's a lawyer fine. I have a right to determine if he's a lawyer. He can't say that he's anonymous, and he's representing Seth Allen. It's just it didn't make sense, and I figured I had to find out who this guy is. If he's saying he represents somebody in a case against me, then I need to identify him. So I identified him. I didn't want him to come out and say- the reason I put all that information in the document was because Mr. Worthing has called me a liar over and over and over and I wanted everybody

Brett Kimberlin made a good point. Aaron Walker has been misrepresenting the idea he was my attorney. He even asked me recently if I would waive attorney-client privilege, so he could post an email between us. Aaron Walker was never my lawyer. He can't practice law in Maryland. Never, ever should Aaron Walker have been involved in this case. I get that he wanted his identity to remain anonymous, but let's keep this real.

Rupp: This isn't even in the court. This is incredible.

BK: I know.

Rupp: This whole thing is incredible. I'm going to- there's a motion to quash that was filed on behalf of, that was originally filed by

AW: You're looking at something by Seth Allen

Rupp: No, it was originally filed by Elizabeth Kingsley.

AW: That would be the other attorney who represented me, yes.

Rupp: She filed a motion to file anonymously or under seal. [BK: Right.] She's filed that, and I'm going to grant their request to file this anonymously under seal, and I'll grant the request to seal the information that's contained in docket entry 114 the motion to withdraw as moot. Alright, sir?

AW: Actually, I would like a little more of relief, if you don't mind.

Rupp: No, that's it. I'm done. You're done.

AW: Alright. Thank you, your honour.

Rupp: Alright, Mr. Kimberlin I received a phone call to my secretary from Mr. Allen from the 508 area code number requesting that he be allowed to participate by telephone, and he made representations that he has submitted written requests to participate by telephone. I checked with the clerk's office. I don't see any written requests having been made. So I've reviewed docket numbers 99 and 100 and reviewed your motions for contempt of court against Mr. Allen, and I have to just tell you I'm a little puzzled as to what it is you're claiming he has done that constitutes contempt of court.

So at that point, Aaron Walker for all intents and purposes should have had his ass finally out of the picture.

I've always wondered why Popehat got a pro bono atttorney for Aaron but no one for me. I was the one being accused of contempt of court. Kingsley could have easily thrown in a motion to have Aaron's identity sealed, while simulaneously and easily defending myself for this rubbish attempt by Kimberlin to yet again have me criminalised.

Aaron Walker wants folks to believe he let Kingsley go in order to defend himself. He's never fully explained that. My hunch is Kingsley recused herself after reading the 200 or whatever page insane motion Aaron Walker chucked into my civil suit he had no right to include himself in.

As for the motions I sent in that Rupp never saw, they were in the courtroom just not in his hands. Call it bureaucracy or whatever. I guess I done good by calling in and making sure Judge Rupp knew I wasn't in any further default mode. A court clerk told me the motions had been located, and as they were sent certified mail, I have proof of that. I just have no money to appeal, and Team Breitbart has been using me the whole time for their own ends.

When Aaron wrote it appears Maryland law does not allow people to testify telephonically, he could very well have been talking out of his ass yet again. I think since Rupp didn't have my motions in front of him, he decided to forego allowing me to testify by phone but used the knowledge I was willing to then act on my behalf. That will be clear by the end of this post.

It's disturbing that Aaron Walker has made it seem I may have been a stalker. He has consistently written that as a defendant I deserved legal help. I've yet to see him write unequivocally I did nothing wrong to deserve being sued in the first place. How was I in any way ever a stalker or defamed Brett Kimberlin?

BK: Alright. I'll be happy to go into that. Are we gonna have Mr. Allen on the phone?

Rupp: No, I want to know why you think he should be held in contempt of court.

BK: Well, I have a memorandum. Can I just walk you through it? Can I hand you a copy of it?

Rupp: If you can't tell me, well let me see what you have. You're submitting today a twenty-three page memorandum set for this hearing.

BK: I'm just gonna walk you through this. I just wanted you to have this.

Rupp: Just give me the bottom line. Why do you think he should be held in contempt of court? I don't want to hear anything about Judge Jordan. That has nothing to do with anything before me.

BK: With what?

Rupp: This has nothing to do with what's before me. Judge Jordan has nothing to do with the order that you're seeking of contempt of court. [BK: I know.] So what is it you

BK: There are two things. Judge Jordan issued an order on November 14th in a damages hearing, where he issued a permanent injunction against Mr. Allen prohibiting him from defaming me or [Rupp: Right, I saw the order.] And so Mr. Allen kept telling the judge at the time that he was done blogging about me, that he was not going to say anything more about me.

Rupp: The order says he's to enjoin permanently in engaging in tortious conduct constituting defamation or of interference with business relations of the Plaintiff Brett Kimberlin. [BK: Yeah, right.] So what is it he's done that makes you feel he's violated this order?

BK: And at the time Judge Jordan was very clear to him. He said, I want you to leave this man alone. I want you to stop blogging about him.

Jordan never said I couldn't blog on Brett Kimberlin. That was an outright lie. Thankfully I had a competent judge that day in January.

BK: I want you to quit talking about him. And I can read to you from the transcript if you want. It's on page seven.

Rupp: It's one thing to say that, [BK: I know] but this is what's ordered here: Defamation, interference of business relations. Talking about somebody doesn't constitute defamation.

BK: Well, he's not just talking about me.

Rupp: Well, tell me what he's done that you believe constitutes a violation of this court order.

BK: Well, first of all on August 8th Judge Ruben in a preliminary ruling

Rupp: This is a November 14th order. [BK: I understand] This isn't Judge Ruben's order.

BK: I understand. There was a preliminary injunction in this case requiring, ordering Mr. Allen to delete a number of blog posts he had made on his blog. And Mr. Allen refused to do so, so Google actually deleted those blog posts. So as soon as the hearing was over here on November 14th, Mr. Allen then reposted those blog posts, and that is the subject of the permanent injunction. He said, I had a preliminary injunction already finding these blog posts were defamatory in August. Judge Jordan made this injunction permanent and prohibited him from doing so in the future. And he told him at the hearing, he said that if you write about Mr. Kimberlin you do so at your peril, and you can be in front of the court in contempt. So he was told explicitly not to blog about me, not to defame me, not to repost these things he had already posted. So since then he's, I can just show you the different posts here. It's literally hundreds of pages of posts.


I mean, he didn't just repost what he had been ordered to take down in August in a preliminary injunction. He went on and on. I mean, and not only that he attacked the judge in this case. He called him the worst names you could ever imagine. And this morning he's blogged about you, your honour. He's called you names in two posts this morning.


I mean, I know it doesn't matter, but it just shows there's contempt here. He's contemptuous of the court's order. He has totally ignored the court's admonition both during the hearing and afterwards he's posted and posted. He's reposted, and you know he calls me all sorts of terrible things. He calls me a terrorist. He calls me a cybersmearer. He calls me a pedophile. He calls me

Kimberlin is a liar. I never called him a pedophile ever. I've only pointed out credible sources who have raised the possiblity he was one with Julia Scyphers' granddaughter. Thank God for Judge Rupp the Magnificent. Kimberlin had three hours on November 14th to prove even one instance of defamation or stalking, and he utterly failed because I never did any of those things.

Rupp: I've read the 20 items that you've submitted in your memorandum [BK: right]

This is the point when Aaron Walker decided to butt in, even after he was done with having anything to do with it. He had already won by getting his information sealed. He's lucky Rupp ignored his follow up comment, after Rupp had threatened him with the sheriffs. Aaron Walker is either insane or involved in the Breitbart scam, period.

AW: Your honour. If I may, I'm sorry, break in a second time.

Rupp: No. I had a sheriff up here, because I didn't think one was needed. I'm about to get a sheriff up here to escort you out of here. [AW: I understand.] You're not breaking in. Sit down.

AW: I felt the need to explain something to the court if I could.

Aaron wrote in his entry that he said I don't understand instead of I understand. I heard it as him saying I understand, that he acknowledged having no right to break in and was apologising. As an attorney he had to know he was running the risk of being held in contempt. So why'd he fudge the transcript to make himself appear as a great civil rights lawyer in some great free speech cause, when he's really simply out to hawk his book, peddle for unearned donations, and pimp for the decaying Breitbart Empire?

Aaron wants it both ways. He wants people to believe he actually did something in my defense, when he didn't do one bloody thing. He says he stuck around to see how things turned out for myself. But then he downplayed what actually went down.
So the court went on, looking at post after post at Seth Allen’s blog and deciding that one post after another didn’t constitute defamation and therefore it didn’t violate the order. I didn’t see which exact posts Rupp was talking about, but you can deduce much of it from reading the transcript. So if you are curious—and in the name of full disclosure—embedded here is a full copy of the transcript of that hearing.
Aaron and the rest of the Breitbart Cult do not want folks to consider the obvious. There's no logical explanation for why Elizabeth Kingsley stopped representing Aaron Walker. There's no logical explanation for why Aaron opened his yapper and almost got arrested, after for all intent and purposes his involvement was over. There's no logical explanation for why Aaron Walker engaged with Brett Kimberlin after the hearing and grabbed his I-Pad. He thought it was an explosive? No fricken way. Aaron is either unhinged or involved in a scam, possibly both.

The rest of the hearing did go pretty much the way Aaron Walker described. Judge Nelson Rupp read through each of my entries written after November 14th and found that none of them constituted defamation nor interfered with Brett Kimberlin's business.

While taking in below what Kimberlin was saying, please keep in mind that during most of that, Judge Rupp was methodically pouring through my schtick. Rupp mentioned how he didn't understand how I expected the court to know about my motions simply because they were posted. I already explained that above. I do like how somehow I was able to be present in the court via Rupp reading DFQ2. Donkeytale would call that RIOTOUS!

Rupp: Alright, I've got the twenty items here.

BK: Well, I can show you these.

Rupp: What are those?

BK: This is the stuff he's posting on his own blog.

Rupp: What's currently posted?

BK: This is all stuff he has posted since November 14th.

Rupp: What's currently posted as of today?

BK: Oh today about you?

Rupp: No, I'm not interested what he's posted about me. What's he

BK: I'm saying all this is posted on his blog.

Rupp: Didn't he take all of that down?

BK: No, Google took it down in August, and as soon as the judge, he got back after the November 14th hearing, he reposted it and posted more stuff. I mean it's like I've said. This is all since November 14th. This stuff, and it's all about my business. It's all about me. I mean, I was arrested 32 years ago on a case. I got out of jail. I did my time. I run two non-profits in this wonderful city working with kids and Congress members and community leaders. You know, I have two kids and a wife, and this guy will not leave me alone. He wants to post stuff that happened 32 years ago. You know, he dug up 32 year old mug shots of me I had never even seen before.

I'll interject one last comment before I stfu. You'll see at the end, Rupp finally got to the motions I had sent in certified mail that he never saw due to red tape or wtf. One of them said that since I had never been legally served papers for this contempt hearing, the whole proceeding should have been dismissed. Rupp seemed to agree.

Then Kimberlin in all his ineptness as a jailhouse attorney tried one last ditch attempt to have the hearing continued, so he could yet again hire a rent-a-cop to "serve" me papers. I believe Kimberlin wanted so very badly to get me down to Maryland again to once more have me illegally detained. At that point you'll see that Judge Rupp the Magnificent brought the bullshite festivity to an abrupt ending by denying the motion to have me held in contempt of court.

Oh, and one last point. As Kimberlin pointed out on November 14th and yet again in this session, I was clearly the one and only who had exposed him and Velvet Revolution. So who the triple f dooes the Breitbart Cult think they're fooling other than dumbasses suffering from authoritarian personality disorder?

Rupp: That doesn't constitute defamation. It's all true.

BK: It's not true.

Rupp: What, that you were arrested?

BK: I'm not a terrorist. I'm not a pedophile. I mean, that's not true, and the other thing is my original case had to do with not just defamation. It had to do with interference with business. What he's doing with this is interference with business. He posts this on his blog in order to interfere, and we had a big hearing on this at the damages hearing. And Judge Jordan heard over and over, you know how, what his goal is.

Rupp: Do you have there what's currently on the, what currently exists? Is that correct?

BK: Like I said, this is all since November 14th.

Rupp: But that's currently

BK: Yes, that's what's on his blog.

Rupp: As of right now?

BK: Yes, and I have a list

Rupp: Let me see it.

BK: You want to see it? Ok.

Rupp: Ok, this one is dated November 23rd. I don't see anything in here that would constitute defamation.

BK: Well there's a lot of stuff in there. I could certainly find it. What he does is he mixes. He posts something then you know he says Brett Kimberlin the Speedway Bomber, the terrorist, the perjurer, the pedophile, the this and that. You know, and what he does is he tries to do this, so then he can get it on Google or get it on the search engines. And then people who might want to donate to my business which is what Judge Jordan heard the whole case was about, won't want to help me, won't want to donate to my non-profits. And he does this intentionally to harm my business, and Judge Jordan was very explicit. You know, don't mess with this guy anymore. Leave him alone, and he doesn't leave me alone. I mean he's even threatened Judge Jordan. And like I say, it's not true. It's not true what he says. I'm not a hoaxster. I'm not a fraudster. That's what he calls me. I'm a hoaxster. I'm a fraudster. I'm a conman. I'm all this stuff. You know, our non-profits are sanctioned by Guidestar, Network for Good, the Secretary of State of Maryland, the Better Business Bureau. We have not had any problems with anything except Mr. Allen. Only in his mind am I a fraudster, a hoaxster, a conman, and all these other things. He'll do a long post that you're reading, and then all of a sudden in the middle of it, you'll see Kimberlin this, Kimberlin and his partner Brad Friedman are hoaxsters, fraudsters, and he does this to hurt our business and to harass me. And the original complaint charged harassment. That's what this man is doing.

Rupp: I read the one dated November 16th, 2011, and I don't see anything in there that would constitute defamation.

BK: Judge, it's not just defamation. It's interference with my business. That's what Judge Jordan was very clear about. And you know, he reposted posts that were already ordered deleted by Judge Ruben in a preliminary injunction, and Judge Jordan after a long hearing made that injunction permanent. And he just went straight out and reposted them. And bragged about it and said that he wasn't going to listen to the court, that he wasn't going to listen to Judge Jordan.

Sorry one more comment. I reposted one of the deleted entries but then deleted it within hours just in case. Everything I've posted that contains material from deleted entries has been rewritten. Perhaps I could have legally reposted them all as they were, but I wasn't going to risk that. That being said, I definitely needed to rewrite what had been lost, so people could figure out the true story; so they could read materials I documented which transcend myself as an individual.

If I hadn't done so, the hoax purporting Mandy Nagy as having broken the story (over two years after I did) might have taken hold.

Rupp: I read the second one dated November 16th, 2011. I don't see any defamation in there. ... I just read the one dated November 19th, and I don't see any defamation in there.

BK: Judge, when he posts things from my blogs

Rupp: He posts things from your blogs?

BK: He'll take pictures of things from our non-profit organisation blogs, [Rupp: uh-huh] and he'll put them in here interspersed with allegations of murder and terrorism and hoaxing and frauding and things like that. That, that is harassment, and it's interference with my business. Judge Jordan told him not to interfere with my business. That's his whole goal. He's admitted on his blogs that he wants to destroy my business. Judge Jordan told him at the hearing leave this man alone. He's not left me alone. He's doubled down. Judge Jordan told him to let me get on with my life.

Rupp: I read the November 18 and November 24 blogs. I don't see anything in there that's defamation.

BK: I have a peace order against Mr. Allen, because he threatened to murder me.

Darn, I can never shut up. Even hack writer Mandy Nagy has shown that the so-called murder threat was a hoax propagated by internet predator and Kimberlin associate Neal Rauhauser. Ok, I'm done. I'm done. &:)

Rupp: I read the one dated December 10 and another one dated November 18. I don't see anything in there that constitutes defamation. December 20. ...

Rupp: I've read the one for December 20. There are certainly offensive comments, but I don't see they rise to the level of defamation.

BK: But the interference with my business. That's the second part of Judge Jordan's ruling, and he does this on purpose. Because my business is basically virtual. It relies on the internet.

Rupp: What evidence do you have that anything specifically has interfered with your business?

BK: Well, I know for a fact that people when they google my name, the first thing that comes up is Mr. Allen's posts about me being a terrorist or whatever. And they go and read his blog, and then they don't donate to our organisation. This was a very big issue in the November 14th hearing, and Judge Jordan found that Mr. Allen was interfering with my business. And he ordered him not to do that. He ordered him if he was going to write, that he did so at his own peril. And for him to be able to repost posts that Judge Jordan had already found to be defamatory in a preliminary injunction is wrong. I mean, that's why Judge Jordan made that a permanent injunction, so that Mr. Allen would not be reposting the same stuff. He regurgitates the same stuff from 32 years ago, and Judge Jordan, you know, when he was issuing his order, he said 32 years is a long time, Mr. Allen. Even though you say you're propounding the truth, what for? That's what Judge Jordan said. Mr. Kimberlin should be allowed to get along with his life, get on with his life. And he says at the end, give the man a break. His kids and wife don't need to be reading about his past on the internet. That's what Judge Jordan told him, and he told Judge Jordan over and over, Judge, I'm done blogging about Mr. Kimberlin. I'm done. I won't blog about him anymore. That's what he said. And the judge gave him a break with a hundred dollar nominal judgment and said just don't blog about this guy anymore. And what does he do? He doubles down, and he said this morning in his post, if you don't rule in his favour, you're going to get it. And he used a lot worse terms than that.

Rupp: He said in this last blog which is apparently dated December 31st, this is the first I've seen of any request to postpone the hearing and testify telephonically on his blog. And I don't know why he expects the court to know what he's blogging about, but in any event he says that he was never served with the petition for contempt.

BK: Uhm, I realise what he says. I mean, he says a lot of things. Uhm, I mean he, when he was before Judge Jordan he cried poverty.

Rupp: What evidence is there of service of the contempt petition.

BK: Well, I mean that's up to the court, I mean the court

Rupp: No, it's up to you.

BK: No, the court sent him service. [Rupp: No.] He knows about it. I mean he's known about it. He's been blogging about it. He's known about the case. I mean, like I said, this morning he blogged about it, that it's about a half hour session, that Judge Rupp has the case. I mean, he knows everything about this case. And you know, the court sent me copies of the order of the hearing and sent him copies too. Uhm, I mean if you want to continue this hearing I'll be happy to agree to a continuance and allow Mr. Allen to come here and make his case. That's fine with me. I would actually like that.

Judge Rupp: Have you anything further?

BK: Yes, could we get a continuance to allow Mr. Allen to appear? If we get a hearing date, I will hire a sheriff to serve him personally in Massachusetts.

Rupp: Well, I've reviewed what's been submitted. I've reviewed 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 different sets of blogs that have been submitted as well as the memorandum which contains on page 7 items 1-20 of support of the Plaintiff's petition to hold Mr. Allen in contempt. I do not find that there is sufficient evidence that would allow me to conclude that Mr. Allen is in contempt after reviewing all of these documents. I am going to deny the petition attempt. Court's in recess.

Is Mandy Nagy Insane Or Was She Messing With SWAT Patsy Ron Brynaert's Head?

The following is for Mandy Nagy for having continually thrown me under the bus. She snitched for a non-death threat. She thought I worked with Neal Rauhauser. She revealed personal info I had disclosed to her in confidence, and she didn't even get that right. She tried to steal undue credit for the scoop that was mine. She recently stood by and let me get smeared. She has lied over and over again in some petty attempt to make a name for herself. Mandy Nagy is scum.

Is The Breitbart Cult Involved In A Hoax?

Was Andrew Breitbart a cult leader?

We've been hit by some major heat, yet the truth marches on. A bunch of people will not like this post. The truth hurts.

This diary is dedicated to Ron Brynaert. He has been unfairly found guilty through blog court of having committed three SWAT calls. This entry is also dedicated to myself for having written it. I may be humble, but I'm not stupid.

While Team Breitbart continues to advance monetarily, it's doubtful that can last for much longer. Too many are starting to realise that whatever remains of Breitbartian power has been built upon the charred reputations of Ron Brynaert, Mike Stack, and myself. I say enough is enough!

The Breitbart Six

Colonel Patrick Frey

On May 25th, 2012, Patrick Frey published an epic piece of yellow journalism more than implying that Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, and Ron Brynaert are an evil axis practising lawfare and SWATtings. He got the lawfare part correct, but he went too far in regards to the SWATs. He should have also left Ron Brynaert's name out of it.

I'm sure at the time it seemed like a very good idea. If he were Wayne Madsen or Brad Friedman, it would have been some very entertaining internet convolution. But the man is a public prosecutor. A real person has been unfairly smeared as a criminal. That's despicable.

Take a good luck at the ugly mug of the dude on the far left. That's a public prosecutor from Los Angeles who has been astroturfing former Raw Story editor Ron Brynaert as having made those SWAT calls. I believed in Patrick Frey. I never suspected a public prosecutor would publically condemn a man without solid proof. But that is precisely what has happened.

Patrick Frey on The Mike Malloy Show guest hosted by Brad Friedman

Patrick Frey is a highly manipulative individual and extremely hypocritical. He must even realise by now he went too far.

I had gotten to know him quite well over the last year and a half and assumed he possesses integrity. I was wrong.

Frey is simply not going to come out and say, "Hey guys, mea culpa. It was really foolish as a public prosecutor to smear Ron Brynaert as a criminal without solid proof. I am returning all donations added to my tip jar. Hey Ron, sorry buddy."

Non-academic Patrick Frey scrawled the following a few days ago:
I keep reading that I am trying to “convict” Brynaert on my blog.


I want my SWATting to be thoroughly investigated.

I want the perpetrator(s) caught and punished.

I want all viable leads to be explored.

I kept silent for months, while (I was told) the case was being investigated, or would be, by this agency or that.

Now all the investigations into my SWATting have been closed or rejected.

Of course, there is an active investigation into Erick Erickson’s SWATting, which I believe was carried out by the same person or persons who carried out mine and Mike Stack’s.

I don’t feel my being silent all those months served any purpose. I want the leads investigated.

That is why I have been speaking out. It’s that simple.

Anyone who claims I am trying to convict people on a blog is spreading falsehoods. What good is it to convict someone on a blog?? I want the wrongdoers sent to PRISON.

All I can do is publicize what happened to me and what evidence I have been able to uncover.

I have a lot of evidence of harassment towards me and others over the past year. It will take a long time for the full story to be told.

But don’t tell me I’m trying to convict people on a blog. I’m not. I’m putting facts out there, and urging that a full and thorough criminal investigation take place.

I don’t believe that has happened yet. I want it to.

Again: it’s just that simple.
I don't believe Patrick Frey. He came out with a monster piece linking Kimberlin, Rauhauser, and Brynaert to three SWATs based on a mixture of flimsy circumstantial evidence, conjecture, and opinion. I assumed a public prosecutor wouldn't throw around conspiracy theories as fact. Imho, he should be removed from his position and possibly disbarred.

I was late to figuring this out. The first SWAT victim Mike Stack appeared to believe Ron was culpable. But then Mike changed his mind. I then mistakenly thought Mike Stack had been manipulated by the "Ron/Neal" disinfo crew. It took a while, but I eventually realised Ron Brynaert neither works for Neal Rauhauser or Brett Kimberlin.

Team Breitbart has basically done to Ron Brynaert what the other side has done in regards to cybersmearing. Two wrongs are both wrong. Ron Brynaert has become a patsy. The damage done to his reputation will not be easily repaired.

I think Brynaert should sue Patrick Frey. Admittedly I'm not a lawyer and don't know how that would result. Nonetheless, there's a very good reason why 12 Angry Men is considered one of the greatest American movies. You can't convict someone because it seems they are guilty or because it tidies everything into some self-serving narrative. What part of innocent until proven guilty doesn't Patrick Frey understand? How can a public prosecutor get away with this smear job on Ron and maintain his employment?

Team Breitbart would have probably been able to keep me in line if not for the piling up of blatant inconsistencies. It turned out convicted felon Ali Akbar had not been merely a kid in the wrong place at the wrong time. Instead of doing the right thing by stepping down from the National Blogger's Club, Akbar instead made light of his crimes and remains its president. Wrong move.

Looking back perhaps the major reason I became so fiercely dedicated to exposing Brett Kimberlin was due to the sheer craziness of the "double secret exoneration" schtick peddled by Larisa Alexandrovna. Brett Kimberlin has been portraying himself as an ex-political prisoner who sued the government, was exonerated, and won a large settlement. Anyone seeking swampland?

One of the things I most despise is hypocrisy. How can the "I am Aaron Walker" movement proceed in good faith when one of their main leadership voices has been peddling a similar kind of bunk portrayed by Kimberlin and Alexandrovna?

Ok, perhaps I am not as holier than thou as projected. Maybe if funds had been provided for my case which has only recently closed, I would have been less likely to start wondering wtf was up with the railroading of Ron Brynaert. No funds raised by Akbar were being provided to protect my free speech rights.

Compounding that, Ali Akbar and Lee Stranahan then started pushing the idea I was making sock puppet posts at the enemy website Breitbart Unmasked. Add two plus two, good people. How would you have reacted, if you were me?

I actually wasn't too surprised Ali Akbar and Stranahan treated myself as if I didn't exist or worse. That's been a recurring modus operandi of Team Breitbart. Patrick Frey could have helped me out big time last year. Unfortunately he turned out to be a self-serving cheapskate. I needed him to front $400 to make it to a hearing. I promised I would pay him back. He was only gonna end up contributing $100 he had originally offered. Mandy Nagy also offered to pony up $100 through paypal. I could have easily payed Frey back over a short period of time. The plane ticket was around $400, not a small fortune.

The Frey family owns a million dollar home. At that time I was the only one in the grips of Kimberlin lawfare. I had gotten very lucky to find that flight from Boston to Maryland. Seriously, what the heck is wrong with this country that people like Patrick Frey aren't willing to make such a small sacrifice?

Imho, if Patterico hadn't been such a selfish tightwad that fateful overnight in August, his good buddy Aaron Walker's life would currently not be in shambles. Frey's selfishness created a domino effect. If I had made that hearing, there would have never been the "death threat" which never actually was one. Mandy Nagy would have never revealed herself as being a rat snitch. Aaron's name would have never entered the picture. It's that simple, Patrick FatFreyFace.

It has recently come to light that during that time frame, Mandy Nagy actually believed I was working with Neal Rauhauser. Let that sink in. The two people I was relying on for help included a tightwad to go with a conspiracy theory freak. Mandy Nagy up to at least October 7th, 2011, believed I was working for Neal Rauhauser. Mandy Nagy is an idiot or worse.

Even if Patrick Frey can be cut slack for having been a cheapskate, he had no right to recently berate me for having made a death threat. For one, I never met a judge or prosecutor. I was let out as soon as court opened the next day.

Somehow in Maryland any Joe Schmoe can get another arrested based on their own word. That's what happened to both myself and Aaron Walker. This is what the story should be focussed on, not some unproven SWAT conspiracy theory. Imho, the major focus of the story should be this: Since Aaron Walker and myself have provided evidence to Maryland authorities of false charges and multiple counts of perjury, why haven't they charged Brett Kimberlin? That would have put a stop to all this nonsense. But that's not as sexy a story as astroturfing unprovable SWAT claims.

Hmmm, is it possible I've been hoaxed by Team Breitbart? The narrative put forward has been Aaron Walker showing up to the January hearing because he was so paranoid his real name was going to be revealed and hence his life would be in danger from terrorists. Aaron Walker along with his buddy Dustin Farahnak have been running a website named Everybody Draw Mohammed. Aaron and Dustin are hardcore Islamophobes.

I never asked Aaron Walker to go to court on my behalf. He can't practice law in Maryland. He had no right to be there. I now believe his paranoia over having his real name released was a ruse. Why didn't fellow attorney Patrick Frey advise him against attending?

Why was Aaron Walker such an idiot as to have gotten that close to Kimberlin and then grab his I-pad? Does anyone actually believe Walker's claim he believed the I-pad was a possible explosive? Walker's name would have never been outed if not for his grabbing the I-pad. That's what led to him and his wife allegedly being fired. I had nothing to do with any of that.

If Frey and Co. had truly cared about my plight, they would have gotten behind me from the start and found me a real attorney or made sure I could get down to Maryland to defend myself pro se. Why didn't they? In short, anyone claiming Aaron Walker was my attorney in any way is talking out of his or her ass. Same goes for anyone claiming Team Breitbart in any way helped me.

As to the legal victory on November 14th in which Kimberlin was destroyed, that was 100% my own accomplishment. Mandy Nagy had actually made it more difficult by printing out articles from bogus sources such as The Washington Times. I had asked her to print out materials on the Connell threatened by Rove hoax, but for some reason that was a no go.

The sheer truth is I had scooped the overall story. Imho, Team Breitbart basically hatched a plot to replace Mandy's name with mine for credit. It also appears quite possible that the Breitbart Cult had also schemed to replace Aaron Walker with myself as the martyr of Kimberlin lawfare. I am not an ingrate or into undue conspiracy theorising. This is brutal honesty.

To sum up, Patrick Frey has crossed an ethical line by cybersmearing Ron Brynaert. Simply look at the title of his big post: Convicted Bomber Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, Ron Brynaert, and Their Campaign of Political Terrorism. Frey has a lot of nerve arguing he hasn't been prosecuting Ron Brynaert through blogs. Yes he has,and the most important question to consider is why.

Lieutenant Lee Stranahan

Lee Stranahan has been every bit as creepy towards me as Patrick Frey. Did those two really expect me to read such crap and take it on the chin in support of so-called unity?

If it hadn't been for Robert Stacy McCain, this blog would have been the only venue by which my true story could have been accessed. The problem there is that this blog does not get much traffic.

I was amazed to find out Lee Stranahan knew so little about my story for someone positioning himself as a leading observer and participant. We started emailing, and I almost went on his radio show. Thankfully I didn't. It turns out Stranahan is a self-promoting jackass without a sincere inner core. It has emerged his true intent has been to bury my story.

I was not about to let a poser like Lee or anyone else get away with smearing me after all I'd been through. He's what is referred to as a marketing whore. He used to be a liberal, then a year or two ago he met Andrew Breitbart. Then he transformed into an extreme conservative.

For real? Who makes such an abrupt 180 degree turn? Not someone who is a sincere human being. If anyone thinks this is an unfair hatchet job on Lee Stranahan, please take a good look at the following links.

I don't run scams. I'm trying to feed my kids and keep a roof over their heads. So bugger off ya wankers.

The Ethics of Whoring Your Storytelling

More Storytelling Whoring

Did this really happen, was Lee pranked, or was it a hoax?

Lee Stranahan annoying an innocent woman from California in regards to his whorish Weinergate storytelling

I have no tip jar. No tip jar signifies 100% integrity. Lee Stranahan is the opposite of integrity. Why should anyone believe one word coming out of his mouth? Has anyone read some of the crap he peddled in the early months of Weinergate? It was as if Lee had become the BradBlog of the right.

Lee Stranahan is all about sticking his ugly mug in the middle of a big story and overamplifying his contributions. He evokes the thought, "Who is this guy, and why won't he go away?"

That's exactly what he did in regards to Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day. He's the Forrest Gump of the blogosphere with nothing to offer but self-promotion. Bet on it.

He is also a very mean individual. Here was his response to someone on my behalf requesting he redact my hometown along with false information claiming I am mentally ill:

Former? FBI Sewer Rat Brandon Darby

Brandon Darby is Lee Stranahan's "partner in crime." He is well-known for one thing. Back in 2008 instead of uplifting some impressionable youth and helping them along the road of life, Brandon Darby as an FBI informant destroyed them.

Like Lee Stranahan, Darby is another ideologue lacking an inner core. Get this. He used to be a big talking lefty anarchist emphasising the need to take risks in protests. Although he was never charged with entrapment, many people feel Brandon Darby acted extremely unethical and thus should be ostracised. I agree.

Here are some links. You can check them out for yourself and make up your own mind. Imho, Brandon Darby is 100% pig.

This American Life: Turncoat

Cop Nation : Snitch Brandon Darby, and Riot Police With the 'Kent State' Gene

How a Radical Leftist Became the FBI's BFF

If newbies and fence-sitters aren't swayed by those, the following should suffice. Look at how Brandon Darby smeared me.

I think I read somewhere that Brandon Darby sleeps with a weapon by his pillow. I guess that's what happens to exposed sewer rats whose job duty was to ruin lives. Brandon Darby was those kids' mentor with about ten extra years on them and with enough gravitas in the activist community to have their ear and basic respect.

Granted the FBI probably egged Brandon on to manipulate the lads into committing an arrestable offense. Perhaps too much demonising of Brandon Darby will obfuscate the institutional problem which is state-sponsored spying on American citizenry. Cointelpro and other oppressive manifestations of the Spy Factories need to be dismantled.

Incidentally, both Lee Stranahan and Brandon Darby have been busy filming and attending OWS protests and Tea Party meetings. Hmmm. Could it possibly be that one or both of them are currently employed by the FBI? It wouldn't be a surprise.

Warmonger Dustin Farahnak

Dustin Farahnak is the third member of Team Breitbart who lives in Texas. Dustin represents the banality of evil. Donkeytale has given him the nickname of Dustin Flanders based on a Simpsons' character. Oh yes, he is so very nice and polite on the surface to go with one's milk and cookies.

Unfortunately, beneath his facade along with that of Aaron Walker's reside sadistic streaks of over the top demonisation of Islam. Hardened ideologues such as themselves through dissemination of invectiveness are helping prop up the spy industry and never ending war. You're either with them or against them!

Dustin Farahnak and Aaron Walker would like folks to believe they harbour no ill will towards all of Islam. Maybe they don't. Nonetheless, they are part of a war culture that is ruining our economy and turning much of the world against us. Due to their brand of extremism, many in the world view all of us as Ugly Americans. Some end up hating us so much, they decide to fly planes into tall buildings.

The attacks on the World Trade Center towers occurred precisely because there are too many Americans suffering from authoritarian personality disorder. I don't see moral countries like Ireland being terrorised or hated by Islamists. So why us?

It's a natural response to the banality of evil and support of neo-colonialism promoted by the Dustin Farahnaks and Aaron Walkers of the world. I do not condone terrorism. Nonetheless, let's put the blame for terrorism where it belongs, on those who support and work for the Military-Industrial Complex and exploitative capitalism.

Anti-War Protest Gets Heated

I'm not sure if that is Dustin in the above picture, but from the article it's written:
But before long, the protestors had protestors of their own. "Freedom's not free y'all," said Tech student and Army Reservist Dustin Farahnak. "I say it's worth fighting for," he said. It was a viewpoint quickly pounced upon. "Freedom is worth fighting for!" shouted one of the peace activists. "That's why I will put my guns down and stand for peace. We say no war! We say no war!" he shouted.
I am not outing Dustin for kicks. My concern is that since he is closely associated with sewer rat Brandon Darby, he too could end up becoming an immoral FBI informant. Within the spy industry there has been a push for the hiring of more agents of Middle Eastern descent. Dustin fits the profile for potentially becoming such a rat snitch.

I am assuming this is him below. If by chance he ever infiltrates an activist group, hopefully someone will recognise him and bring it to the attention of leaders, instead of watching parking meters.

Dustin R. Farahnak of Austin, TX

On a side note, it has come to my recent attention another potential spy factory informant with ties to the decaying Breitbart Empire goes by the name of Jay Batman aka Jamin Bates aka @Momus1978.

Jay Batman translated Federalist papers into Arabic. He hosted Lulzsec documents. He called himself a right wing anarchist. Jamin also comes from Texas, a recurring coincidence or not in this story. Imho, sincere and peaceful Anonymous/OWS/TeaParty folks should keep their distance from this individual.

I am left of liberal. I have always been that way. I did not have some false inner core epiphany such as Lee Stranahan and Brandon Darby claim to have experienced. That being said, I have no problem co-existing with sincere righties. I've a hunch most of them are anti-war, which is where humanity must head if it is to survive.

Unfortunately, there is a group of extreme right wingers including those from the Breitbart Cult who are basically contibuting to the ruination of this planet. I am talking about individuals who embrace the death industry and are flag waving automatons such as Dustin Farahnak.

Do people really believe Nazi Germany was all about Hitler and/or German culture? No, it could've happened here or anywhere. The Russians have referred to it as ordinary fascism. It has acually happened here before, so don't kid yourselves. We can also assume who among us would have been on the wrong side of History at nearly every juncture. We know it wouldn't have been anarchists and peaceniks.

The Breitbart people are opportunists. They are not even true conservatives. We know this because many on the right have not been willing to drink their Kool-ade. The Breitbart Cult is desperately attempting to survive the death of their beloved godhead. How long do the Breitbart Six expect this charade to last? He's dead. It's over.

This bunch simply lacks the requisite talent to carry on Andrew Breitbart's legacy. It's become apparent as each day passes, that the Breitbart Six have perverted a simple to understand story into some convoluted mess starring Patrick Frey, Lee Stranahan, Aaron Walker and Mandy Nagy. Their fundamental problem is that Andrew Breitbart possessed more talent in his pinky than they do in their whole bodies combined.

Deputy District Attorney Patrick Frey has led them down a path towards ruination. This is not going to turn out the way they expect. I feel that in my bones. Spreading right wing hate while demonising fellow Americans for having the gall to be right of center and to the left is not going to keep the money rolling in. Once more become aware of what has been done to myself and Ron Brynaert, that in essence what we are now witnessing is a hoax, their party will end abruptly.

Mandy Nagy and Aaron Walker can pose all they like as libertarians and close to the center, but it's simply not true. Aaron has never been a good blogger. He's less interesting than watching paint dry. As to Mandy Nagy, let's be honest. What original work has she ever written? It definitely wasn't the Kimberlin story. That one was mine no matter how much Lee Stranahan, Brandon Darby, and herself convey otherwise.

Fake Journalist Music Major Mandy Nagy

It was quite the shocker to find out Mandy Nagy in any way thought I was working with Neal Rauhauser. I have email proof from October 7th, 2011. We're not talking June or July.

If I'd known she was this crazy and manipulative, I would have never had anything to do with her. In fact, a friend in the earlier days warned me. I should've listened. Mandy Nagy lied to me. She told me over the phone she was open-minded, libertarian, and not too much to the right. She told me how because she was so liberal, she was getting called a left wing troll by many in her milieu.

The basic reason I emailed Andrew Breitbart was because I figured with his stature and connections, he could help me. I had thoroughly exposed the Velvet Revolution over two years before Mandy Nagy even knew they existed. VR was attempting to get Breitbart indicted. I had no money for an attorney. I thought he might be able to help.

I've never bought into the idea Andrew Breitbart and Patrick Frey weren't wealthy and couldn't help. I was utterly shocked not one of them was willing to lift a finger for my defense. I wasn't asking anyone to break the bank. Even up to recently I had remained patient as Mandy said eventually there would be justice and that everyone was rooting for me. It was all a lie.

Getting used and thrown under the bus is not my idea of a good time. The last couple weeks it hit me that not one of them has ever truly been in my corner. Well, Aaron was, but the man is not certified to practice law in Maryland. What part of I have been on my own this whole nightmare do people not comprehend?

If this hasn't been a hoax on Aaron's part, I hope one of these days he wakes up and sees what Patrick Frey, Mandy Nagy, and Lee Stranahan have pushed him into. He should have been advised to not go to any of my hearings. It was my civil trial not his.

Patrick Frey should have watched his back. Why didn't he? I realise how crazy it must sound to consider the possiblity this has all been a hoax. But is it really that crazy an idea? I don't know. I do know the amount of convolution that has engulfed my life since Weinergate is mind boggling. In my gut, it feels scripted.

How could Mandy Nagy have ever believed for one moment in her gut I was in cahoots with Neal. That is simply an insane thought process. Why didn't Patrick Frey set her straight? Why has an easy to understand story been turned into conspiracy bullshite and mayhem? If Ron Brynaert hadn't been involved in covering Weinergate and this other stuff, could I have been the one mimicked on the SWAT calls? To paraphrase what Mandy Nagy wrote:

I've fretted over that possibility the whole time to the point of experiencing angst. Since I'm a wonderful person, I thought it best to try to help someone disabled and with no money. Yet my gut instincts were telling me Seth was part of Neal's crew.

I am not disabled. I explained this to Mandy over the phone. My mother was dying of cancer and drugged up due to heavy treatments. She set up a disability trust, so she could die knowing I would have basics such as room and board, even if I was unable to acquire employment. While I spent a great part of my life away from home, she kinda sorta treated me like a momma's boy.

I have never been to an analyst. I have never undergone tests or been diagnosed with a disability. I've never been prescribed nor taken any medication for mental illness. I do not have any disabilities, period. Mandy knew this, because I explained it over the phone. That she could think in "her gut" I was partnering with Neal Rauhauser should tell anyone curious about Mandy Nagy what kind of intellectual mess and/or con artist she truly is.

Not only for months on end did Mandy tell me to be patient, for justice was on the horizon. She told me she was soon going to write up a three part series concerning online bullying, and that in one part she would address what happened to me. She lied.

I've been getting nothing but a shell game from Patrick Frey and Mandy Nagy since becoming a guest in their milieu starting in October 2010.

Thankfully, I have seen the light and am no longer participating in their criminal cybersmear of Ron Brynaert. I don't care if I die a poor man, while they hit the jackpot. Money cannot buy integrity. Free at last. Free at last.

I see no other reason for Mandy Nagy continually throwing me under the bus than she knows for a fact I scooped the Brett Kimberlin/Brad Friedman story over two years before she had even heard of them. Team Breitbart continues to minimise what I accomplished.

This has been a transparent attempt by Nagy to uplift her own unoriginal piece, because it fits the Breitbart Cult agenda of polarisation equating profit. I simply do not fit into the narrative that an "evil Team Kimberlin" has been SWATting conservative bloggers in order to silence them.

The welfare of Ron Brynaert, Mike Stack, and myself do not matter to them. They have no heart. I refuse to take any more of their bullshite. I refuse to believe anything more that ever comes out of the mouths of the Breitbart Six.

In one of our final email exchanges, I asked Mandy why she hadn't stuck up for me when Darby and Stranahan were ripping my name to smithereens. Her response was behaviour modification techniques. Wrong answer.

I wasn't seeking agreement in private that what those two were astroturfing was very wrong. It was nice to hear, but so what? I needed Mandy Nagy to make a public condemnation of the Darby/Stranahan cybersmears along with their underplaying of my historic role. It wasn't going to make anything better to merely hear some lame plausible deniability she had missed those sequences. Why wouldn't she stick up for me? Is Mandy Nagy evil? Why didn't she make a public censure of what those two self-serving punks had done to me?

It shouldn't have taken Robert Stacy McCain to ensure my story finally be told to a larger audience. Patrick Frey and Mandy Nagy have basically not only done squat for me, they have pushed me down in order to promote themselves. That's ironic or wtf considering they truly had next to nothing to do with any of the fundamental story. F that, and F them.

Apparently Mandy Nagy has an undergraduate background in music and not in journalism or anthing to do truly academic. That makes sense. I can only conclude Mandy Nagy is a self-serving hack who wants more credit than she deserves for her 2010 piece. Shame. On. Her.

About a month ago, I got into a Twitter debate with her concerning former FBI informant Hal Turner. I was wondering if perhaps Neal Rauhauser has been working a similar gig to Hal's.

Neal Rauhauser is the epitome of provocative. I don't think it's off the wall to theorise Rauhauser has been posting a lot of crazy junk in order to provoke confused folks on both sides of the political fringes to cross a line.

It didn't matter to Mandy Nagy that it is a fact Hal Turner was a crazy FBI informant similar to her close friend, sewer rat Brandon Darby. That was an unsettling response considering both she and Hal Turner are from New Jersey. She acted like she'd never even heard of him. Or perhaps her cognitive dissonance derived from the fact she and Hal are both on friendly terms with another fellow right wing extremist named Sean Hannity.

Anyway, Mandy chimed in that the FBI would never condone Neal's online activities. Omg Mandy Nagy, Hal Turner's activities are proof that not only does the FBI condone such things, they will pay for it.

It was only due to Hal Turner having threatened three judges that he was finally arrested. Previously posting access to bomb making instructions was no problemo. Having been smacked around in that debate, Mandy whined a bit and then left the dialogue. I wish good luck to anyone seeking fair debate with Mandy Nagy or anyone else suffering from authoritarian personality disorder.

Never My Lawyer Aaron Walker

I hate to include Aaron in the Breitbart Six, but apparently due to a variation of Stockholm Syndrome he has become a leading member of the Breitbart Cult.

Last week saw the break up of our friendship. Here's what happened. Aaron requested I relay some questions to internet journalist Ron Brynaert. I am not a lawyer or journalist. I. Am. Just. A. Blogger. I did what Aaron asked.

Then when I informed Aaron Walker that Ron was in receipt of said questions, Aaron got irate and told me he was writing me off. Hmmm. I merely did what he had asked. For that, he attacked me as somehow breaking his trust by aiding the enemy. Some things may never make sense. What ever happened to real people? You know, rational and consistent. Where'd they go?

Aaron has been trying to pin guilt for his demise on the unfortunate email I sent last Summer. In his eyes, it has had nothing to do with his own alleged paranoiac need for anonymity, his grabbing Kimberlin's I-pad, or even the fact there was never a need for him to go to my hearing, in which he wasn't my lawyer. Whatever. He can think what he wants. It's a free country.

The Breitbart Six need to realise I have two higher education degrees, no disability, and perhaps most importantly no tip jar. Or maybe that's the problem. They realise this and fear the truth will emerge that they have cybersmeared Ron Brynaert while belittling myself. I refuse to be their doormat any longer.

While Patrick Frey and Company continue to smear and try Ron Brynaert through internet courts, I continue to blog with integrity by providing brutal honesty to the best of my abilities.

As an objective observer, donkeytale with his Troll Wars series is recommended as a good starting point for newbies and fence-sitters. I am asking readers to think for themselves and avoid the tendency to succumb to right or left wing herd pressure. Please reflect on what Patrick Frey, Lee Stranahan, and the others have truly been attempting to do to my and Ron's reputations.

I am hopeful the openminded will recognise the possiblity that I am correct and not simply out for entitlement; that Aaron Walker has now become or has always been fully indoctrinated into the Breitbart Cult; that Aaron is no longer the man I once knew who seemed to act independently with a penchant for truth as his primary objective.

Lawyers should not be trying their personal cases on the internet, period. These people are also the ultimate hypocrites. They are committing cybersmears similar to that of Neal Rauhauser. A relatively simple story has evolved into a what's in it for me crapshoot, one in which the Breitbart Cult obviously couldn't care less for who they are trampling on in pursuit of profit and hidden agendas.

Postscript: One by one, those few I believed were on "our side" have turned out to be disappointments. I now add Robert McCain and FilmLadd to that list.

McCain tweeted: @AaronWorthing Wins Blow for Free Speech, Then Gets SWATed ATTN @ArletteSaenz

Arlette Saenz is a reporter for ABC News. If you go to that link, this is what you see:

After I confronted him, he tweeted, "@Prepostericity We don't know who did it. But whoever did it, it's legitimate NEWS. @ArletteSaenz"

Fine. But it turns out Robert McCain is playing both good and bad cop. At his blog The Other McCain, he copied and pasted from "Tabitha Hale of the Franklin Center for Government & Public Intergrity."
Convicted domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin and his associates have repeatedly terrorized bloggers and others who highlight his story with over 100 frivolous lawsuits and 4 SWATting attacks.
In response for requesting McCain make a mea culpa, he tweeted, "@Prepostericity @FilmLadd Wait: I'm being accused of journalistic malfeasance for quoting ... Tabitha Hale? #IronyAlert."

I responded, "@rsmccain I didn't use those words, but did I miss your disclaimer there is no proof BK was behind SWATtings?"

I let him get in the last good cop word: "@Prepostericity Seth: I was merely re-posting a press release. Also: I cannot guarantee that Lucky Charms are "magically delicious.""

FilmLadd is Ladd Ehlinger Jr.. He rightfully asked me what I meant by calling Team Breitbart out for propagating a hoax. I responded: "The hoax is BK, Neal, & Ron are behind the calls. Maybe they are, but you need to prove it before making claim."

Ladd's response was having a meltdown then putting me on block. What follows is documentation of the sadistic barrage of ad hominems and logical fallacies Ladd put in my path. My final comment is one can't put words in someone's mouth, browbeat them, and then think that's winning a debate.
@Prepostericity @rsmccain Seth, you need to spend a little less time with the followers of a Charles-Manson wannabee psychotic.

Translation for people babbling about "inside jobs" = "I forgot to take my meds today."

@Prepostericity Who said BK committed 4 Swats? You "do" understand the word "accomplices" right?

@Prepostericity Also, didn't realize you were a PaulBot with all this "inside job" horseshit. Yeah, let's all have a SWAT par-TAY! Wooo!

Oh for chrissakes. What about Tower 13, maaaaan? What about Tower 13? MT @Prepostericity inside job

@Prepostericity Why don't you and Ron go drop some acid and come up with a theory about ancient aliens being responsible?

@Prepostericity They've got 3 voice recordings and an analysis provided under oath fingering the dude you let worm into your head. Smaaart.

@Prepostericity I scanned through them. You know I always say what I think. And I think: you should reconsider gaslighting for the Mansons.

@Prepostericity Okay, one more time: 3 voice recordings, voice analysis provided under oath. What other proof do you want?

I am satirizing you, because your points are ludicrous. Sorry. But there it is. RT @Prepostericity ad hominems

MOST amazing to me is that you're gaslighted by convicted bomber & buddies - a bomber who SUED YOU FRIVOLOUSLY. @Prepostericity

@Prepostericity There's proof in a court of law, there's proof in rational world. You are way outside the rational world, Seth.

Can we say "Stockholm," kiddies? @Prepostericity @rsmccain

@Prepostericity I've answered your questions, and you just ignore the answers. Because you've got Stockholm Syndrome.

@Prepostericity IMO, you need a therapist. Also, you and teh Internetz are a bad combination.

Hey, asshole, @Prepostericity, BK BOMBED PEOPLE. @AaronWorthing's jitteriness about him is understandable.

On the other hand, @Prepostericity, you lovin' the bomber and his buddies is not. You're basically sick. Get help. Get well. Goodbye. Again.

@forever_banned Isn't that really the way of every socialist, in the end?

@rsmccain Let's just say that @Prepostericity chose an apropos screen name. Let him go play footsie w/the Charles Manson wannabe.

If someone's making you feel a bit crazy, they may be psychotic. See

Wasn't entirely clear 2 me until today that Seth was really Stockholming. Was kinda hoping not. @abbywaxenberg @Dust92 @AaronWorthing

@abbywaxenberg @Dust92 @AaronWorthing So I have no more interest in engaging w/him until he sees a therapist and is deprogrammed.

An Open Letter To Robert Stacy McCain

Hi Robert,

It was actually over two years I was on my own fighting the good fight in all aspects. I was calling for VR to be investigated for fraud. I cybersleuthed some scoops. Mandy Nagy and Patrick Frey have done nothing for me. In fact, I have major gripes against everyone except Aaron and ok Dustin too. But the other four members of Team Breitbart are no good in my eyes and never will be- Patrick, Mandy, Brandon, and Lee. That goes for Ali Akbar too while we're at it. But he showed up out of nowhere and really has nothing to do with anything other than making "our" side look bad.

I like you. I actually like you a lot. We would probably despise each other though if we started talking politics. I don't care if you hang a Confederate flag. I do not believe you are racist. We don't even have to go there or anywhere, but say you weren't married, I wouldn't assume you'd be averse to dating and marrying a beautiful black woman.

My life has been ruined by this. It's that simple. Ron Brynaert's life has been ruined. Mike Stack's life has been ruined. None of us deserved any of this. None of us can have our reputations restored. None of us are getting a payday out of this.

I understand your good intentions here. Unfortunately, there is no way for me to not be brutally honest. I have nothing but my mind to go with above average research and writing skills. If you want specifics of why I am not happy with those others, I'll fill you in. Otherwise, I don't know what to say.

I've got a lot of theories, if you want to discuss them. I'm not sure though how they could ever be researched or proven. So I try to keep things simple. This is a story of myself. Then Aaron became involved. That's it. All this other stuff is pure conjecture. Patrick Frey crossed a serious line. As has Mandy. I have proof she believed I was working with Neal Rauhauser, when she was purporting herself as being in my corner. Patrick Frey could have gotten me to a hearing for a few hundred bucks yet was a cheapskate. His explanation was I was not family. These people did absolutely nothing for me.

The so-called fight against the BK-NR axis is garbage. That is a mere promotion of the Breitbart business model. Twitter fights are pointless.

What must be confronted is what's been done to Ron. I've had it pretty bad too, but I can live with it now after you basically documented it was my scoop.

I'm humble too. Yeah, I know that probably sounds like bullshite. I have two Master's degrees. Mandy Nagy has a degree in Music. Patrick Frey is a public prosecutor and no scholar who without proof has ruined an individual in Ron Brynaert. Lee Stranahan is the ultimate marketing whore. This has all been proven. Brandon Darby, wow, he is as un-American as they get. That dude is psychotic. Again, that is all public record. I wouldn't be surprised if Brandon Darby made the swat calls. I am now positive Ron didn't. That's the elephant in the room.

My advice is to ignore those complaints. They are cheaters to think they can make complaints to the #1 journalist covering the story. I am asking you to suspend ideology. Sure, I know you have integrity. Yet we are all vulnerable to peer pressure. Human nature is a bitch.

Sorry if I sounded like an ass in this email. I truly believe I am the closest to having figured out the whole truth. What I would do if I had the money would be research voice analysis tests and find out if they are legit. If they aren't legit, the swats will never be figured out. The swat calls cannot be traced. And if they are legit, apparently Frey cherrypicked the results in order to condemn Ron.

We do have all the various recordings. The swat caller is logically either someone we know or someone who was hired. There appear to be three suspects for who we know: Ron, Neal, and Brandon. I think it was Brandon who did it. That's just my opinion but based on a very informed guess. As for Ron, here's the thing. If he did not make the swat calls, then one of the biggest parts of this story has become his victimisation. He may appear nutty. He has definitely been an ass at times. Nonetheless, senile Vaughey is correct that even a prostitute deserves a defense.

Robert, I've been studying internet convolution since 2006. My background is Social Theory, an interdisciplinary Sociology including History, Psychology, Philosophy, basically all the liberal arts goodies. I know my stuff. I read a lot of books back in the day. Ron is in over his head. He's scared. He's on his own. And it's not like we two are in great contact. No, not at all. There was just a flurry of emails last week, and what one sees on Twitter with a bit more at Pffugee Camp. That being said, we have basically been in the same milieu since 2006. He had the cushy job. I was the academic, yeah eccentric, who by life chance somehow ended up on blogs. I may not appear as all that, but my academic resume speaks volumes.

This is the greatest thing I've ever accomplished, and I will not let self-promoters steal my destiny. They have tried, and they have failed. You may chalk this up to megalomania. However, it just so happens I am who I say I am, and for the most part I am the most trustworthy of them all. I am the only true scholar in the bunch. I never made a death threat. I am not mentally disabled. I've explained it all on my blog in that backstory entry and in others. I am willing to answer any questions you have. I'm very sorry to say I have no respect or trust for those others, not after what they have done to myself, Ron, and Mike. Three regular guys should not have been thrown under the bus so the remnants of the Breitbart Empire could rise again. They are doing to us, especially now Ron, what we have proven the other side does. There's a little bit of truth to everything. The BK-Rauhauser side has been insane and somehow gotten away with some very creepy lawfare. But the way this turned into Swatgate has also been outrageous. It's mythology.

The Troll Wars 7.77: Across the Great Divide

By: donkeytale
Monday June 11, 2012 8:15 am

[It's unfortunate censored an eccentric, contrarian blogger going by the pseudonym donkeytale. It's ironic, riotous, or wtf they would do so on a topic one of their top bloggers had mangled in a recent entry, one donkeytale links to below. Not to mention that one of the primary issues at hand is freedom of speech. Oops, guess I just mentioned that.

Donkeytale had two updates, but I have only been able to partially retrieve those:

UPDATE House Republicans Demand Swatting Investigation:
"On Monday, 85 House Republicans, including Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), [...]"

UPDATE II: Brett Kimberlin’s website now claims that he too was swatted on May 31, 2012 and offers $10,000 reward for information leading to the indictment of the swatter(s) of Stack, Patterico, Erickson and himself.

I also see donkeytale made a response to someone's comment, but this is all I got: I think your assessment is right on target in many ways. This is why it IS a war and it IS partisan. Shots are being fired from both sides and battles are escalating unpredictably. I also believe the motivations go deeper as well for both sides. There is fame and fortune (relatively speaking) for the participants [...]

Anyway, I just fished this out of Google cache. Enjoy! ~~ DFQ2 editor Not Brad Friedman of BRADBLOG.COM]

In the US criminal justice system you must bring your charge of wrongdoing by individuals to the authorities and then they decide whether to investigate/prosecute the case.

I think I’m fairly knowledgeable about most of the activities involved in this case. I believe that justice will be served. And if it is not, I will write about it to the best of my ability. This case is very important on several levels, both legal and ethical.

Part of the problem comes from the inevitable politicising of this case along partisan lines. It cannot be helped. The story was born out of a politically charged partisan battle between the Breitbart Media Empire and the attempts by leftwing social media players, including Kimberlin, to fight back in a mostly online battle begun after Breitbart release inflammatory hoax videos of Shirley Sherrod and ACORN which went viral into the MSM, and also related to Breitbart’s activities promoting Weinergate.

If you read virtually any comment thread on the right you see the connection is being made over and over again between Kimberlin, his funders (Soros, always useful for rightwing conspiracy theorists, among them) and the left. Essentially, the meme is that the court tactics BK implemented are how the left pushes its political agenda, meaning we routinely abuse the system for our advantage, using money from shadowy left wing financiers and Hollywood in order to do so.

Some of the connections are implied but many commenters are very explicit. And such comments occur even in the blogs of people who are reporting the story with a fair amount of objectivity. The crowdsourcer cannot control the crowd reaction.

I’m reading blogs and comment threads on both sides, including the very recent juvenile comedy /stylings of TBOGG right here at FDL, and can say with certainty that the lowest form of commentary about this case comes from those who wish to use it merely to score political points on either side of the partisan divide.

It’s become drearily partisan, in fact, although many thoughtful people of right and left, including this reporter, wish it weren’t. The real issues for bloggers involve first amendment rights and for me anyway, the uses of crowdsourcing to press for investigations and criminal charges against individuals who stand accused of committing no crime.

I believe blogging can be all about vengeance (and here I’m not implying either innocence or guilt to any participants in the Troll Wars, talking strictly the principle), perhaps even rising to the level of conspiracy if taken up by any orchestrated group. I hope that among any legal decisions, one is rendered on the use of this technique, which may be applied against anyone at any time a large group of like-minded bloggers working in concert decide to focus their speech on one person or group, for whatever reason.

I believe crowdsourcing in general to be a constitutionally protected form of speech. I believe it has the potential to shake the foundations of political and business power structures that seem ever more remote and unreachable from our systems of justice and regulation. However, I’m very concerned when individuals are targeted, and yes, even those, especially those, with criminal pasts and questionable present day activities, such as BK. The constitution was designed at its most fundamental base to protect exactly this type of individual from the wrath of the vengeful crowd. Whether the system can withstand the rising influence of social media and remain relevant is the most intriguingng question of the Kimberlin Kerfluffle for me. Its not at all about the individual actions and reactions of the actors involved in the game.

Can our court system sort this out in good faith under the constitution?

The flow of crowdsourced speech tends to run like a river at flood tide, especially if the flow goes viral as in this case. Flood speech can easily jump the banks into areas of defamation and libel, and it can cause escalating hostilities and recriminations, types of payback not anticipated by the initiators of the crowdsourcing. We are seeing this now played out in the Troll Wars.

I believe that Judge Vaughey attempted in his way to address those concerns in his ruling. The word is that there will be an appeal and famed 1st amendment lawyers are working on behalf of Walker. I say this is a good thing. The system is working as designed. Walker will have his day in court.

I see that in his most recent post about Erick Erickson, Patterico has refrained from naming the individual he suspects of swatting him, which seems to be a tacit acknowledgment that he had previously gone too far. Now, he notes only that the Erickson SWAT caller sounds like the same caller on his and Stack’s recorded SWAT calls.

The problem I have with Patterico naming the person or persons he suspects of swatting him came after, as he admitted, the police were alerted but decided against investigating the person he suspects. And. while he shaded his comments carefully with qualifiers when stating his suspicions, his story and the audiotape broke nationally in the blogs and mainstream media, with prominent mention made by name of the person he suspects, but whom the police have declined to investigate.

Likely, there were several related reasons for Patterico’s incendiary May 25 post.

Certainly, it is very reasonable to guess that among his potential motivations are revenge against the individuals he blames for his swatting, political partisanship and a very excellent self promotional sense of timing for maximum self-publicity in conjunction with Everybody Blog About BK Day. He had to know that there was a very good chance this story would be picked up in the MSM.

In fact, both Patterico and Aaron Walker had already arranged to be interviewed by Glenn Beck, where they discussed the swattings and Aaron Walker’s arrest in detail, while providing the audiotape to ensure its going viral at least to the vast right wing side of the blogosphere.

Brad Friedman of BradBlog Part 4

Up until recently, Brad Friedman has had only one moderator, a neonazi sympathiser named Agent 99. The Last Name Left did a brilliant job exposing this, after I had given him the tip.

Here's the link to a TLNL entry concerning BradBlog and links within explaining the TLNL-Agent 99 backstory.

The only conclusion I can come up with is that Brad Friedman is a confidence man. In late 2004, Brad became Brett Kimberlin's frontman. He is an ex-actor. He's been basically playing the role of intrepid citizen journalist, with the objective being to inspire donations. He's been the clean-cut, goody two shoes, fighting for the regular guy Joe Schmoe.

VR-BradBlog have been adept at procuring big bucks from well-meaning but naive people. Brad's crucial error, imho, has been not cutting ties with Mr. Kimberlin. Now that basic truths have literally transformed the internet zeitgeist into pure schadenfreude, are large numbers of local and national media outlets about to pick up the story? If so, what will that do for Brad Friedman's prospects as a so-called 'activist journalist'?

When it was first leaked out in late 2006 that Brett Kimberlin was the brains behind BradBlog's emergence, Larisa Alexandrovna was sent in to vouch for the Speedway Bomber. Oh my, did she ever tell a whopper, that Brett had been a political prisoner who did nothing worse than sell pot to Dan Quayle.

Fast forward to 2008-09. The Michael Connell threatened by Karl Rove hoax fizzled fast, primarily because a small but persistent crowd were speaking out against it as being unsubstantiated bunk. It thus couldn't be realistically spun that one "mentally deranged" person such as myself was running around with sock puppets making up crap to protect Karl Rove.

Ironically considering Kimberlin's past, Velvet Revolution has been peddling themselves off as being at the forefront against domestic terrorism. They've even claimed that due to their efforts, the Department of Justice was now making it a top priority to stop such hate crimes.

BradBlog and Velvet Revolution are business models, period. They are not sincere leftier than thous. Their marks have been such, e.g. the lovely heiress to the Oliver Grace Estate, Lori Grace. VR has taken in a lot of money precisely because there are many good-hearted folks willing to donate who lack awareness of rat aroma. Brad's schtick, in short, has been a confidence game.

Of course BradBlog censors. That's been proven. Of course he has had the Democratic Underground in his back pocket. That made it impossible for the word to truly get out until very recently. We can't blame a decent philanthropist such as Lori Grace or Babs Streisand for that matter for having contributed funds to them. Lori thought the 2004 election was stolen. She wanted to make a difference. A similar reversal of support occurred with Howard Stern for GW Bush. My President lied to me!

For all of Brad & Company's snooker abilities, BRADBLOG.COM has some blind spots. Those have certainly come home to roost. No way should Brad Friedman have allowed neonazis to dominate his comment sections for so many years.

One of VR's affiliates is or was the Lone Star Iconoclast. They were running articles written by a kooky anti-semite named Captain Eric May. Eventually Brad did wise up and fired Agent 99. Alex Jones made a similar decision when he cut the cord with Michael Rivero of What Really Happened Dot Com. I think we have TLNL to thank that Agent 99 was finally given the boot. Talk about persistence.

With no due respect, imho, Brad isn't smart enough to pull off this good guy facade for much longer. Too much information has been revealed. Sure he eventually let Agent 99 go, but how is he to explain his close ties to the Speedway Bomber?

The problem is the election integrity angle has been finished since a Democrat in Obama won. In addition, the nature of Brad's extensive list of hoaxing has been documented. His Green Report has gone nowhere. His Stop Domestic Terrorism campaign will go nowhere considering who his partner is.

The Team Breitbart hoax has to be the final straw for Brad Friedman's credibility. It's his own fault too. He treated me like dirt, while daring me to dig up dirt on himself. Which I did.

I then found unlikely allies in Patrick Frey, Mandy Nagy, and Aaron Walker, who each agree this story transcends predictable repukelican versus libtard rhetoric. Brad can ignore all which is going on around him. He can write on it too, though I doubt he will. Either way he can't win. In the blog war between DFQ2's David versus BradBlog's Goliath, little old me won, and Brad Friedman lost.

After letting Agent 99 go, Brad posted how he has had only volunteer moderators. That was a knowing lie. He's had only one moderator before adding on corporate attorney Ernest Canning. Brad was merely downplaying Agent 99's historic moderator role at BradBlog by alluding to some imaginary others.

In the past, Friedman has referred to me as the psychopath stalker. He has basically been reduced to being a scared little man fretting over having been outed as a money making fraud. If he were to discuss myself or the current zeitgeist, that would direct people to seek out information which transcends myself. Brad Friedman's ultimate problem is that the reader decides.

That's why Brad Friedman censored myself, TLNL, or anyone else who has dared speak truth to con man. If he had been a man about it and honest, he would have let us get whatever out of our systems on his blog while doing his best to reply to disturbing questions. The gig is basically just about up for Brad Friedman. BradBlog has been a sham house built on hoax cards, and those cards are a tumbling.

In September 2010, I left the following post at BradBlog in the early am before finally tumbling off into Sleepy Land. It made it to the board. However, by the next day it was gone. It was as if it had never existed. If Brad hadn't been afraid of what had been written, he would have come up with his standard, "comment deleted- banned poster is a psychopath stalker troll- banned means forever Soc. Edited by Brad."

No, even then Brad realised even a smidgen of the truth of his shenanigans couldn't remain visible. He could not afford to let folks get to content which transcends who I am in real life. Thus, the comment was completely whitewashed not just censored with the standard Agent 99 or Brad lame explanation.

The internet as a whole is finally learning more about Brad's partner, that he's a liar, a conman, the murderer of Carl Delong's spirit, a prime suspect in the murder of Julia Scyphers, and other things.

The world is also learning that Brad Friedman is not an intrepid journalist. We now know that without Brett Kimberlin, Brad would still be the same no-name, failed actor he was before joining forces with Speedy in late 2004. We now know Brad Friedman has accomplished nothing tangible as an activist. We now know he has been involved in the spreading of crap hoaxes in pursuit of profit.

Here's a bit more proof Brad friedman is into censorship.

And here's one more screenshot. Enjoy!

The above photoshop had to do with BradBlog Act One: The Clint Curtis Hoax. That was the origin of a cult of personality built around Brad Friedman. In regards to finding out some backstory, it's been somewhat difficult since Brad has cheated by putting robots.txt blocks on the wayback machine.

Now why would he do that, if he has nothing to hide? I'm happy many are now researching how much money Velvet Revolution has taken in over the years. There was a big stinkydoo over Bev Harris back in the day and perhaps for good reason. I don't know. Maybe Brad has broken no laws. I'm not a lawyer. But at the least, I should have the right to declare based on facts which transcend myself that F is for Fake Brad Friedman.

Comments From The Past:

S: The only conclusion I can make is that Brad Friedman is a confidence man.

What does that mean?

They run paragraphs with hyperlinks - to frontpage - instead of to places substantiating their claims.

Look through their stuff - they link to their own front page: - the place you're reading the fucking article!

The links should be elsewhere in their sentences, and linking to evidence to substantiate their claims. They do link to "real content" sometimes, quite liberally, but amongst it they litter a hyperlink to the frontpage of - as if it indicates they have researched the claims they are making. Yet the link just goes to the particular story. Just to be clear.

Bradblog is far too self-referential. I think it sticks. But it's a nothing anyway? How many people go there?

Their coverage of the voting in NY was interesting - I thought they totally overplayed the sense of failure of the machinery of the elections. Their perspective is "fraud" and its association with wider conspiracy - yet the problems with NY voting that they linked to actually described machines failing to boot - scanners failing to scan - NOT vote fraud. Of course it's an issue with computers and voting, but that's no reason to push a wholly conspiratorial worldview.

Brad is pushing an Alex Jones perspective upon the voting system. Of course there are issues with electronic voting, but that's a long way away from proving a conspiracy which is deploying hokey electronic voting systems as a means to obtain (phoney) democratic legitimacy.

That's what Brad is pushing? There's a conspiracy to fuck-up the electronic voting system. For particular ends.....

A proportion of his audience accepts that the particular ends for which the voting machines are being fucked-up serve some jewish world conspiracy. Some others have more vague notions perhaps. Whatever it is, Brad is treading water amongst the conspiracists - vote fraud as grand conspiracy - if you want to vaguely suggest it's a jewish conspiracy in your comments go ahead, but if you want to suggest anti-semitic explanations don't cut the mustard then sorry, you're banned.

So, it's a vector for anti-semitism. And when we ask "so who is undertaking this subversion of the voting process, Brad?" he replies with the blade of a censor - long before the question can be put.

judging him on what he censors and what he promotes I have almost zero respect for him.

What he claims to be standing for might be admirable enough but that doesn't mean he really stands for it. Perhaps he does, but why believe it?

Thanks for the post.

You've asked me before what a confidence man is. The definition given by a swindler who exploits the confidence of his victim.

Hmmm. From a quick search, I see it was a phrase perhaps coined by American author Herman Melville, though that's just a guess. I bet conman is an abbreviation for confidence man, yet I'm not an etymologist, or is that one who studies bugs? Now I'm getting all confused. p:> You should never have to ask again what a confidence man is. It's a great phrase, don't you think?

Yeah, it's pitiful how much BradBlog links to itself, including like you say, linking to their own fricken homepage. Talk about lame. Sometimes it's entertaining. I'm not going to deny I ended up with a warped grin after reading Canning say Zionist apartheid supporters were showing up on blogs lately with Spanish names.

Now you're thinking! It's little things like them linking to their own page that give away the act. It's said that things repeated, even if not true, will start to gain momentum with the zeitgeist. Their biggie is that Brad is the leader of the election integrity movement. Or how Larisa kept repeating that BK was an exonerated, ex-political prisoner who never took part in the heinous bombings leading to one man's death.

If you search out their various hoaxes, you'll see the same kind of shell game with links. There are definite patterns to BradBlog and Velvet Revolution that are getting more and more difficult to cover up. At this point, I see BradBlog as boiling down to some lost soul screaming, "Goddamnit, I'm Brad Fricken Blog. SHOW ME THE MONEY!"

I agree with you that they overplay the electronic voting devices for their own kerching ends. We're on the same page. It's all they've got. There's no way they are going anywhere with their Green Report or Stop Terrorism campaigns. And if they even try to come up with another big hoax, people are ready to slice and then toss it into the hoax garbage pit where it belongs. That's what's meant by they can run, but they cannot hide.

For the record, vote fraud is different from election fraud. Their schtick is centered around the voting machines. They see no problem with voter fraud, i.e. fake names, things like that. I actually agree with Brad's basic ideas about how votes should be counted. But so what? It'd be like going leftier than thou more often with my equal schools, end all wars, tax the rich, etc. schtick and then ask for donations.

You know, it's interesting what you point out about the anti-semitism that's allowed to be posted at BradBlog against what isn't allowed, say an expose on BK or their hoaxes. It may be a coincidence, but Velvet Revolution is a major affiliate of Progressive Independent. PI was sponsoring Mike Rivero. Rivero worked with Alex Jones. I know these aren't paystubs like you once asked for. But they're darn close. And the Agent 99 thing is wild. Imho, Brad had to know all about her and the other anti-semites.
