Outrage!: Obama State Dept Partnering With Unrepentent Domestic Terrorist, Brett Kimberlin?!

Via  The Blaze comes the shocking news that the Obama State Dept may be teaming up with unrepentant domestic terrorist, Brett Kimberlin, the Indiana Speedway Bomber turned Soros-funded “social justice” activist who routinely uses lawfare against bloggers who tell the truth about his past.

Consider the following passage from Kimberlin’s “Justice Through Music” website:

MAY 24, 2012 – JTMP has been a participant in the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program for 3 years now, where citizens from around the world involved in the arts get to come to America and visit to learn about the role of arts in the US. This year we had visitors that came from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia to see how Justice Through Music Project uses art to raise awareness on issues, and to bring about social change. This year’s contingent had musicians, playwrights, and people involved in art production. We gave them a presentation and showed them many of our musical art videos that deal with politics and issues, while we spoke about how we operate and produce our art videos. We then showed them how we use this art on our website and YouTube channel to raise awareness on an issue to help bring about positive social change.

***

Below is information on the International Visitor Leadership Program that explains its purpose:

The International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program.  Launched in 1940, the IVLP is a professional exchange program that seeks to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits to the U.S. for current and emerging foreign leaders.  These visits reflect the International Visitors’ professional interests and support the foreign policy goals of the United States.

Who are considered “international visitors?”:

International Visitors are current or emerging leaders in government, politics, the media, education, the arts, business and other key fields. Over 5,000 International Visitors come to the United States from all over the world each year. Since its inception in 1940, thousands of distinguished individuals have participated in the International Visitor Leadership Program, including 330 current and former Chiefs of State and Heads of Government, thousands of cabinet-level ministers, and many other distinguished leaders from the public and private sectors.

What’s more, the State Department website goes on to explain that these international visitors travel to the U.S. to engage in “carefully designed programs that reflect their professional interests and U.S. foreign policy goals.”

Here’s an example of Kimberlin’s music from his band, Op Critical, a little anti- fracking ditty:

Freakin Frackin by Op-Critical – Protest Music Against Fracking! JTMP.ORG and OC:

http://www.jtmp.org and http://www.op-critical.com present “Freakin Frackin” by Op-Critical, a protest song against “hydraulic fracturing”. Hydraulic fracturing, or “Fracking”, is using over 500 toxic chemicals to shatter rock to extract more natural gas from wells, driving profit up. It pollutes our groundwater and the air and is killing us. It is putting profit over the planet. It is time we ban this toxic practice that is harming our planet.

Please order and watch the DVD “Gasland”, a great documentary about “Fracking”. by filmmaker Josh Fox. Get informed about “Fracking”, and we urge you to contact your representatives and say, “No Fracking Way!”, and join the call for a moratorium and eventual ban of hydraulic fracturing.

Uh? Our State Dept is partnering with this?!

According to Wikipedia,

While the IVLP has no written statement of purpose, Dr. Sherry L. Mueller (President, National Council for International Visitors) has identified at least two goals that have remained consistent since the inception of the program:

  1. Link the foreign leaders with their U.S. counterparts, providing a solid professional experience and in-depth, substantive exploration of key issues and diverse, balanced approaches to these issues.
  2. Enable the visitors to gain a better understanding of the history and heritage of the United States, a better sense of who [Americans] are as a people and what [Americans] value.[2]

I can’t think of a more unbalanced approach to a key issue like fracking, than the video above.

Who else  is Obama’s State Department partnering with? Bill Ayers? Charles Manson? I’m almost afraid to check.

Today, McCarty released the trailer for “The CLAPPER MEMO,” in which he connected the dots between the deaths of dozens of Americans at the hands of our so-called “allies” in Afghanistan and a memo signed by James R. Clapper Jr, the man now serving as our nation’s top intelligence official.

In “The Clapper Memo,” I take readers deep inside the bowels of the Pentagon and expose details of a no-holds-barred turf war that began more than 40 years ago and shows no signs of letting up.

I provide details of how the leading non-polygraph technology is being used successfully as a crime-fighting tool by investigators at some 2,000 law enforcement agencies across the United States.

I expose intimate details of how federal government agencies funnel millions of taxpayer dollars to academics at some of the nation’s best-known universities who appear willing to accept handsome compensation in exchange for producing pro-polygraph studies many describe as being flawed.

I share the findings of a study NOT funded by taxpayers that analyzed the outcomes of some 2,100 criminal investigations over a period of 18 years.

Most importantly, I connect the dots between two events — the signing of a memo that effectively ended the use of non-polygraph technology by our nation’s combat warriors and the deaths of dozens of American soldiers in Afghanistan at the hands of their so-called “allies” in the Afghan National Security Force. The link is solid.

The information I share was obtained through official and unofficial channels.

Much of it came from people inside government and academia while the rest came from people with decades of law enforcement, military and intelligence experience.

It came from people across the United States and Mexico and from as far away as Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay.

“The Clapper Memo” will leave you with the understanding that, as long as it continues unabated, this unnecessary conflict between advocates of competing interrogation technologies significantly increases the odds of American soldiers and citizens becoming victims in the Global War on Terror or whatever the political spin doctors are calling the war against Islamic extremists these days.

Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Link-Around

I’m going to have to make this brief because I have to run in a few minutes, so I’m going to put up as much as I can, now, and add to it later this afternoon when I get home.

There are  few Brett Kimberlin posts, today that deserve special attention.

Patrick Frey (Patterico) has finally shared his harrowing tale of Kimberlin and his cohort’s campaign of political terror and harassment against him.  I don’t use the term, “terror” lightly. One of their pranks could easily have gotten Frey killed: Convicted Bomber Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, Ron Brynaert, and Their Campaign of Political Terrorism:

THE NIGHT I COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED BECAUSE OF MY BLOGGING

At 12:35 a.m. on July 1, 2011, sheriff’s deputies pounded on my front door and rang my doorbell. They shouted for me to open the door and come out with my hands up.

When I opened the door, deputies pointed guns at me and ordered me to put my hands in the air. I had a cell phone in my hand. Fortunately, they did not mistake it for a gun.

They ordered me to turn around and put my hands behind my back. They handcuffed me. They shouted questions at me: IS THERE ANYONE ELSE IN THE HOUSE? and WHERE ARE THEY? and ARE THEY ALIVE?

I told them: Yes, my wife and my children are in the house. They’re upstairs in their bedrooms, sleeping. Of course they’re alive.

Deputies led me down the street to a patrol car parked about 2-3 houses away. At least one neighbor was watching out of her window as I was placed, handcuffed, in the back of the patrol car. I saw numerous patrol cars on my quiet street. There was a police helicopter flying overhead, shining a spotlight down on us as I walked towards the patrol car. Several neighbors later told us the helicopter woke them up. I saw a fire engine and an ambulance. A neighbor later told me they had a HazMat vehicle out on the street as well.

Meanwhile, police rushed into my home. They woke up my wife, led her downstairs and to the front porch, frisked her, and asked her where the children were. Then police ordered her to stand on the front porch with her hands against the wall while they entered my children’s bedrooms to make sure they were alive.

The call that sent deputies to my home was a hoax. Someone had pretended to be me. They called the police to say I had shot my wife. The sheriff’s deputies who arrived at my front door believed they were about to confront an armed man who had just shot his wife. I don’t blame the police for any of their actions. But I blame the person who made the call.

Because I could have been killed.

The weirdest part of the whole thing was that I halfway expected this might happen. Because I was not the first one it had happened to.

That’s just one part of a very long post that puts into perspective exactly why RS McCain felt the need to flee his home. As he told me when I spoke to him the other night, “I don’t scare easily” , but “when someone as dangerously sociopathic as Brett Kimberlin, with his terrorist background,  takes a personal interest in you –  finds out where you live, you tend to feel threatened.”

UPDATE:

AoSHQ: What Can You Do?

In addition to reading his record into the Congressional Record, to finally end this absurd contention that it is now apparently illegal to mention the facts laid out in US federal court records, there is tangible legislative action that can be requested:

* That a 501(c) “charity” must certify its principals and employees are not engaging in harassment, intimidation, or attempts to punish free speech, on pain of perjury if this is false.

Will Brett Kimberlin’s business partners and co-principals sign such a certification?

* That a 501(c) principal conducts his legal affairs through a licensed lawyer and not pro se (on his own behalf) unless he can demonstrate that he is indigent.

See, 99% of lawyers would not put their license at risk for frivolous crap like this. Kimberlin can because he has no law license to lose. He represents himself, as as is his right as a citizen… but then, he has no right to run a 501(c). I think a 501(c)’s principals can be slightly burdened to have their suits signed off by a real lawyer, who can face sanctions for false or vexatious litigation against Free Speech.

* That they urge the FBI and DoJ and IRS investigate this matter, as well as possibly-related crimes of intimidation of Free Speech, such as Patterico’s and Mike Stack’s SWATting.

Are those related? We don’t know. It would be nice to know, however.

* That the Government Oversight Committee (or whichever committee is proper) hold hearings on the possible abuse of 501(c) charities for uses against the public interest.

* That Congress stiffen penalties (or add them) such a punitive damages and possibly inductive relief against anyone attempting to use harassment and intimidation to suppress Free Speech. And that they add a law which permits a judge to rule that a litigant bringing vexatious lawsuits with the purpose of chilling free speech be henceforth required to post a large bond before suing, and to have his lawsuits signed off by a lawyer or judge before filing.

***

Here’s an Easy Thing: Ask Congress to pass a special law against SWATting with serious penalties — like 10-20 years.

The Organized Left Now Stalking Romney

Stalking Republicans office holders and candidates has become a favorite tactic of the left. Just ask Governor Walker. He can’t even appear at non-political events like book readings to schoolchildren, Christmas tree lightings, or the opening of the WI State Fair without being hounded by radical unionistas and leftists in Wisconsin.

Occupiers dogged Republican candidates  at numerous primary appearances, earlier this year, and now MoveOn is promising to hound Romney at all of his outdoor speaking engagements.

The following is an email sent to all MoveOn members. Note that it starts off bemoaning how the presidential election is going to be “one of the dirtiest ever” (excuse me, who’s fault is that?!) while in the next breath, suggesting that MoveOn members donate to their campaign of harassing Romney everywhere he goes from now until election day…

Dear MoveOn member,

This is shaping up to be the dirtiest presidential election ever. And the most expensive, with pro-Romney super PACs and huge corporations spending like drunken sailors, thanks to Citizens United.1 The sheer quantity of misleading ads will be stupefying.

But even if they buy the airwaves, they can’t buy the skies. So we can “rise above” their dirty ads—literally—and fly messages from the 99% over dozens of Mitt Romney events. We already did it successfully when we hired a plane to fly over Romney’s Liberty University graduation speech towing a banner that read: “GOP = HIGHER SCHOOL DEBT.”2

We can’t afford hundreds of millions of dollars of TV ads. But it turns out, if we all chip in a bit, we can afford to fly banners over Romney’s head. All the time.

Call it 99airlines.

Here’s the plan: if we can raise $150,000 today, we’ll use the opportunity of high-dollar Romney fundraisers to fly a plane overhead towing a message that reminds voters how he represents his corporate and 1% donors.

It’ll be fun—and it’s sure to grab the media’s attention. But most importantly, with Mitt leading in many polls, it’s a way to let millions of voters who are concerned about the economy know whose side Mitt is really on. Will you chip in?

Yes, I can contribute $5.

With 99airlines, we’ll transform Mitt Romney’s 1% fundraising tour into an airborne progressive message machine. If we hit our fundraising goal, we can secure enough plane banners so that at every Romney event, instead of looking at the podium, the reporters’ eyes and cameras will be pointing up, on the lookout for our banners.

According to Gallup, only 1/3 of voters under 29 are registered to vote and say they’ll definitely do so in November (far less than every other age group).3 That’s enough to swing the election. So with your support, we’ll also reach these voters by making 99airlines huge online—using Facebook and a Tumblr site, to post pictures of the best plane banners.

This summer, we’re pulling out all the stops to win the fight against the Romney super PAC ad assault. The 99airlines planes—and the messages they carry—will transform Romney fundraisers into an opportunity to remind voters what he really stands for—corporations and the 1%.

Can you contribute $5 to help launch 99airlines?

Thanks for all you do.

Apparently, the Obama campaign, too,  is now organizing protests outside of Romney speaking engagements.

Via Gateway Pundit:

Mitt Romney visited an inner school in Philadelphia today to discuss his education agenda. The Obama Campaign met him at the school and protested his visit outside.
Mayor Michael Nutter led the protest complete with Obama 2012 signs.

The Romney protest was organized by the Obama Campaign.

The Washington Post reported:

When Mitt Romney came to an inner-city charter school here Thursday to promote his new education agenda, he received something of a history lecture about the persecution of blacks in America and the struggles of African American children to meet the academic achievements of their white counterparts.

Seeking to broaden his appeal heading into the general election, Romney was venturing for his first time in this campaign into an impoverished black neighborhood to hear the concerns of local educators and community leaders. But here in the streets of West Philadelphia, the emotion surrounding his contest with the nation’s first black president was raw, as dozens of neighborhood residents shouted, “Get out, Romney, get out!”

…Outside, meanwhile, some brick row houses across from the school were boarded up. Police had cordoned off a full city block to protect Romney and his entourage. Residents, some of them organized by Obama’s campaign, stood on their porches and gathered at a sidewalk corner to shout angrily at Romney. Some held signs saying, “We are the 99%.” One man’s placard trumpeted an often-referenced Romney gaffe: “I am not concerned about the very poor.”

Yes, harassing Republicans is fun for leftists. But the goal is not to inform “millions of voters who are concerned about the economy to know whose side Mitt is really on.” People aren’t persuaded by airplane banners, or protests outside candidates’ speaking engagements. The idea to wear people down, demoralize them into thinking the opposition is much greater than it is, depressing Republican  turnout in the general election.

Don’t be fooled. Obama is floundering and his false narratives are flopping. He’s the guy who’s barely winning in one Democrat primary after another against mullet headed jailbirds or “uncommitted”. They are the ones who are demoralized as hell, as DaTechGuy likes to say– Mitt needs to ride right through them.

Uncovered Ad Shows Obama Appeared At 1996 Event Hosted By Democratic Socialists of America

The vetting continues….

Via BuzzFeed:

 In this little-seen advertisement that ran in the Hyde Park Herald in 1996, Obama was listed on a panel sponsored by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), University of Chicago Democrats, and University of Chicago DSA. He also supported gay marriage back then.

Shocking, I know.

As recently as 2004, Obama was publicly singing the praises of outed Communist Congressman Danny Davis:

“He is one on the greatest congressmen in the country,” said President Obama. The reason, Obama told a Teamsters union rally in 2004, “is because he shares our values.”

At that time—just eight years ago—Congressman Danny Davis was continuing his efforts to help move then-State Senator Obama up the Chicago political food chain. And not that long ago—in fact, just two weeks—that Congressman Davis was honored by People’s World, a news website, at the Communist Party U.S.A.’s headquarters in Chicago for a lifetime of “inspiring leadership.”

Upon receiving the People’s World “Chris Hani & Rudy Lozano Social Justice Award,” Davis reflected, “Rudy Lozano and I worked closely together to try and build and a relationship between Latino and African-American activists and union types… we called ourselves ‘Progressives.’”

It’s all good though, because in case you haven’t heard – Obama’s the most fiscally moderate President evar!

Or not.

I mean, really…

Obama Promise Kept: Energy Prices Soon to Skyrocket from $16 per Megawatt to up to $357 per Megawatt

They say most Obama statements come with an expiration date – and most of the time it’s true. But once in awhile, the mask slips a little, and Obama tells us what he really thinks:

According to Phil Kerpen at Fox News, the market-clearing price for new 2015 capacity will be eight times higher than the price for 2012, and those numbers are not computer models, projections or estimates.

These are the actual prices that electric distributors have agreed to pay for new capacity. The costs will be passed on to consumers at the retail level.

What will that do to most family budgets?

Last week the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported a shocking drop in power sector coal consumption in the first quarter of 2012. Coal-fired power plants are now generating just 36 percent of U.S. electricity, versus 44.6 percent just one year ago.

It’s the result of an unprecedented regulatory assault on coal that will leave us all much poorer.

Last week PJM Interconnection, the company that operates the electric grid for 13 states (Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia) held its 2015 capacity auction. These are the first real, market prices that take Obama’s most recent anti-coal regulations into account, and they prove that he is keeping his 2008 campaign promise to make electricity prices “necessarily skyrocket.”

The market-clearing price for new 2015 capacity – almost all natural gas – was $136 per megawatt. That’s eight times higher than the price for 2012, which was just $16 per megawatt. In the mid-Atlantic area covering New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and DC the new price is $167 per megawatt. For the northern Ohio territory served by FirstEnergy, the price is a shocking $357 per megawatt.

Why the massive price increases? Andy Ott from PJM stated the obvious: “Capacity prices were higher than last year’s because of retirements of existing coal-fired generation resulting largely from environmental regulations which go into effect in 2015.” Northern Ohio is suffering from more forced coal-plant retirements than the rest of the region, hence the even higher price.

Congress needs to step in and stop the EPA’s regulatory assault on the coal industry, or America as we know it will cease to be.

The Senate will have an opportunity to do something in the next couple of weeks.

The vote is on the Inhofe Resolution, S.J. Res 37, to overturn the so-called Utility MACT rule, which the EPA itself acknowledges is its most expensive rule ever.

This vote is protected from filibuster, and it will take just 51 votes to send a clear message to Obama that his War on Coal must end.

See www.WarOnCoal.com for information to contact your senators on this crucial issue.
