The Brett Kimberlin Saga:

Follow this link to my BLOCKBUSTER STORY of how Brett Kimberlin, a convicted terrorist and perjurer, attempted to frame me for a crime, and then got me arrested for blogging when I exposed that misconduct to the world. That sounds like an incredible claim, but I provide primary documents and video evidence proving that he did this. And if you are moved by this story to provide a little help to myself and other victims of Mr. Kimberlin’s intimidation, such as Robert Stacy McCain, you can donate at the PayPal buttons on the right. And I thank everyone who has done so, and will do so.

BREAKING: Anti-SWATting California Senator SWATted

This is the latest post in what I half-jokingly call The Kimberlin Saga®.  If you are new to the story, that’s okay! Not everyone reads my blog.  The short version is that Kimberlin has been harassing me for over a year, his worst conduct being when he attempted to frame me for a crime.  I recognize that this might sound like an incredible claim, but I provide video and documentary evidence of that fact; in other words, you don’t have to believe my word.  You only have to believe your eyes.  So, if you are new to the story, go to this page and you’ll be able to catch up on what has been happening.

First, I have been a little under the weather and combined with being busy with other things, I have not been able to blog as much as I would like.  And of course there is lots of other things happening, but you will forgive me if I pay a little more attention to news about SWATting.

But to review a few events you might not have seen.  First, as I noted previously, Bill Schmalfeldt had made a threat last October to SWAT John Hoge—or more precisely it was made from an IP address, that Schmalfeldt has been known to use.  And then as Patterico pointed out, Erik Rush had a disagreement with Bill Schmalfeldt and what a coincidence, he was SWATted, too!

Meanwhile I appeared on the Huffington Post Live with several other people to talk about SWATting.  You can watch the program, here:

And one of the people on the show was California State Senator Ted Lieu, who was pushing some anti-SWATting legislation in California.  This is what he looks like:

FILE: State Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., Tuesday, May 8, 2012.

And in apparent revenge for that act, Mr. Lieu was SWATted.  From ABC 7 in Los Angeles:

TORRANCE, Calif. (KABC) -- Torrance Police responded to a report of shots fired at the Torrance residence of California Senator Ted Lieu (D-Torrance).

Police received the report at about 1:10 p.m. Friday via an Internet service for the hearing-impaired.

Responding officers discovered the residence belongs to Lieu. It was a multi-unit response with fire department personnel on standby.

Officers made phone contact with Lieu's wife, who was home at the time. She exited the residence and police cleared the scene.

Police determined the call was a fake, known as a "swatting" incident (named for SWAT responses to some of the calls in the past).

Read the whole thing.  It’s like a bad mafia movie.  You try to punish the SWATters, you get SWATted.  Are they even intelligent enough to know that any law he passed couldn’t be applied to past crimes?

But this is in fact more serious than frankly my own SWATting.  This was clearly designed to dissuade Senator Lieu from pushing his law, and to terrorize other lawmakers into refusing to support it.  It is an attack upon the people of California’s right to govern themselves.  Consider what I wrote when Gabby Giffords was shot (like when it just happened):

And it highlights what is evil and undemocratic about this kind of thing. I don’t know Ms. Giffords from anyone. But what I know is that the people of her district chose her to represent them, to speak and vote on their behalf and even if she recovers the people of Arizona will most likely be denied that voice and vote until she recovers. One person vetoed the votes of all the people who chose her and that is wrong and evil, and yes, more serious than the average attempted murder.

Likewise Mr. Lieu and other state legislators represent their respective districts.  And this SWATter is trying to bully them into not obeying the will of the people, but caving in to what can only be described as terrorism.

Hopefully, Mr. Lieu will have the courage to stand up to that sort of thing.


And returning from my brief blogging hiatus, let me express my sorrow at the suffering of the people of Boston and my relief that it looks like the bastards are under control.  The only remaining question is they are in league with an international terrorist organization, or “lone wolves.”  Only time will tell.


Also it was very nice of the Huffington Post to let me tell a great deal of my story.  And indeed it was not a surprise to them when I mentioned my active stalking situation and that was indeed why the camera wasn’t on my face.  But I do deeply appreciate the opportunity.


My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years.  I know that claim sounds fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence.  If you would like to help in the fight to hold Mr. Kimberlin accountable, please hit the Blogger’s Defense Team button on the right.  And thank you.

I have accused some people, particularly Brett Kimberlin, of reprehensible conduct.  In some cases, the conduct is even criminal.  In all cases, the only justice I want is through the appropriate legal process—such as the criminal justice system.  I do not want to see vigilante violence against any person or any threat of such violence.  This kind of conduct is not only morally wrong, but it is counter-productive.

In the particular case of Brett Kimberlin, I do not want you to even contact him.  Do not call him.  Do not write him a letter.  Do not write him an email.  Do not text-message him.  Do not engage in any kind of directed communication.  I say this in part because under Maryland law, that can quickly become harassment and I don’t want that to happen to him.

And for that matter, don’t go on his property.  Don’t sneak around and try to photograph him.  Frankly try not to even be within his field of vision.  Your behavior could quickly cross the line into harassment in that way too (not to mention trespass and other concerns).

And do not contact his organizations, either.  And most of all, leave his family alone.

The only exception to all that is that if you are reporting on this, there is of course nothing wrong with contacting him for things like his official response to any stories you might report.  And even then if he tells you to stop contacting him, obey that request.  That this is a key element in making out a harassment claim under Maryland law—that a person asks you to stop and you refuse.

And let me say something else.  In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that any person supporting me has done any of the above.  But if any of you have, stop it, and if you haven’t don’t start.
