A little story about Brett Kimberlin…
A little background first: In the little town of Speedway, Indiana in 1978, Brett Kimberlin set off eight bombs over the course of several days. One of those bombs blew off the limbs of a Vietnam veteran named Carl DeLong, who committed suicide as a result of his injuries. The widow of Mr. DeLong sued and won a civil judgment against Kimberlin for $1.6 million, which he has never repaid. Kimberlin was convicted of those crimes and as such can be labeled a domestic terrorist. Other articles can be found here and here.
Terrorism is defined as: “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property in order to coerce or intimidate a government or the civilian population in furtherance of political or social objectives.”
Given the above, I would say planting and detonating numerous bombs with no regard for human life and/or suffering certainly fits the definition. The working theory at the time was that Kimberlin set off these explosives to cover up another murder. According to evidence reported at Ace of Spades and many other sites, Kimberlin plotted to kill several people while being held before trial and possibly after sentencing. Nice fella. Also while incarcerated, Kimberlin decided to gain national attention by telling various “journalists” and authors that he had sold then Vice Presidential candidate Dan Quayle drugs. This has, of course, never been substantiated.
A left-leaning author wrote a book about Kimberlin, and it can be found on Amazon, if you’re so inclined, here.
Now to bring the story around to today. Apparently Brett Kimberlin has been quite busy since his release in 2000, after serving only 17 years of a 50 year sentence. He has been setting up “non-profit” organizations that are classified as 501(c)3 companies, which means they are tax exempt. Riding on a lovely grant from the George Soros funded Tides Foundation, Kimberlin has been doing quite well for himself as a darling of the left. Here are his latest tax forms, thanks to the Capital Research Center. He has made hundreds of thousands of dollars, mostly in the form of donations from many well-known democrat players, like Barbara Streisand, the Heinz Kerry Foundation and more. This man has made in excess of 1.8 million dollars between 2005-2010, enough to at least make some kind of payment to that poor widow from Indiana, in my opinion.
Interestingly enough, Mr. Kimberlin refuses to be forth coming about the FACT of his prior criminal convictions and has begun to harass and sue people who merely mention facts that are part of the public record. He has filed papers in numerous courts against bloggers who dare mention his criminal past and has in fact gotten people fired through repeated harassment of their employers. Kimberlin is connected to many, many influential democratic operatives and so-called “progressive” bloggers. His efforts to target three or four conservative bloggers who dare speak his name is intimidation at least, and in my opinion, could be construed as a direct threat given his history. Considering even some democrats think he is a practiced liar, why is this man given any credence at all? The answer lies in his “business” dealings. One reason Kimberlin is loved by the lunatic left because he is involved in a movement known as “voting reform,” a movement born largely out of the 2000 election debacle. This movement declares that electronic voting is rife with fraud, and therefore should be done away with altogether. I’m waiting for proof of electronic voting fraud perpetrated by Republicans, at least within the past 15 years. I’ve been searching and can only find allegations. Granted, voter fraud is pretty hard to prove, but you’d think that since they’re giving millions of dollars to a convicted bomber they must feel they’re close to finding something; that it’s all worth it. Right? Right? Bueller??? Even Democratic blogger Steve Benen feels that voter fraud is “a foolish pretense…, there’s no reason for anyone else to take it seriously.” Although he does admit to 311 prosecuted cases of DEMOCRATS perpetrating voter fraud since 1997, but…um, shut-up.
So just to summarize to this point, (and it goes on and gets worse; see links below) this is a man who was convicted of perjury while still in high school, a man who placed numerous bombs throughout a sleepy Indiana town with no thought given to the consequences, a man – who while incarcerated – plotted to kill at least 6 people, one a US attorney, and who, a few years after his release, allegedly harasses and threatens people who simply report these facts. The authorities have done nothing to stop or even slow this man and innocent people are being fired, threatened, and forced to move out of their homes all because this psycho goes unchecked by the media and law enforcement.
So what does it take people? When do we finally say, enough is enough, this has gone too far and must end? When do we realize this is bigger than some ridiculous political agenda and do the right thing? I’m not a blogger. This is just a fun diary of sorts that I cannot really commit to, because of other obligations. But I never could stand a bully, and this type of infantile behavior has gone on just long enough. It’s time to take a stand and say no. No, you cannot shut me up; no, you cannot scare me; no, you will not move me, and no, you cannot just throw a fucking tantrum and get your way. I’m not going anywhere, and I’m not going to shut up. Learn to coexist, (isn’t that your thing anyway, to coexist?) or face the consequences of years of childish behavior. Do not act like you haven’t been warned.

If you happen to read this and are appalled, like I was, that this actually happens in America today, then do something about it. Don’t be silent any longer. If you want more links, leave a comment and I’ll happily send you around the internets to learn more about the craycray. Thanks!
