Who is Brett Kimberlin and why are we focusing on him now you might be asking?
Brett Kimberlin is an American terrorist who stops at nothing to silence his critics, including intimidation and murder. Kimberlin is now out of prison and using the lawyering skills he obtained in prison to file frivolous lawsuits, stalk and terrorize anybody–mainly, conservative bloggers–who criticize or speak ill of him.
“Over the past year, Aaron Walker (who blogged as “Aaron Worthing”), Patterico, Liberty Chick, and now Stacy McCain have been targeted by convicted Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin because they dared to mention his criminal past or assisted others who did. The late Andrew Breitbart warned about Kimberlin and company. “This is war~”, he said.
Stacy McCain (The Other McCain/Smitty) and his family are still in an undisclosed location; suspect it will be that way for a while. He did another post today that does a great job summarizing things to date. For telling the truth about a dangerous man he’s now in hiding. God bless everyone in the fight and God Bless America.
Many bloggers, was well as outspoken media personalities like Glenn Beck, have really received the “treatment” from the leftist minions of hate and chaos. Our good friend Teressa Monroe-Hamilton from the Noisy Room describes her experience below:
“In the 11 years I have been blogging, I have had numerous death threats. But they are nothing compared to what Stacey McCain at The Other McCain is going through. I have watched good friends like Michelle Malkin and other bloggers be threatened, stalked and terrorized mercilessly by the left. They have had to move multiple times, hire private security and fear for their lives and their families simply because they dared to speak the truth and fight back against Progressives. The bloggers I know are the bravest people out there and I am proud to call them friends. Being a high-profile blogger in America these days is to have a very large target on your back at all times – I have had numerous death threats, stalkers, hacks to my site and denial of service attacks. You never know what will happen next. But for those who care more for their country than their own lives, bloggers gladly walk the edge every single day with little notice, lots of scorn and risk to personal life and limb. They suffer through troll attacks, their servers being hacked (with the expense of combating that), spam and of course, death threats. Just ask S.E. Cupp. I have never seen such a wonderful person treated so horrifically. It’s barbaric and criminal.[…]“
Kimberlin is now also a liberal activist (surprised?) who has been funded by George Soros’ Tides Foundation, the Barbra Streisand Foundation and Teresa Heinz Kerry Foundation (wife of former Democrat Presidential Candidate and Senator John Kerry (D-Mass).

Yes that is right, this violent convicted terrorist bomber has been given million$ by progressives… and is now terrorizes bloggers. A must-read Matthew Vadum, Front Page Magazine for more on who’s financially aiding and abetting – “Brett Kimberlin and the Hall of Fame of Leftist Terrorists.”
The Capital Research Center recently posted:
“A few short years after his release from federal prison a convicted terrorist bomber who has been embraced by the activist Left got a grant from the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation.
“Speedway Bomber” Brett Kimberlin (see mugshot above) is a director and founder of the Justice Through Music Project, a seven year old Bethesda, Maryland-based 501c3 nonprofit entity. (See its latest IRS Form 990 [tax return] here.)
Kimberlin is the business partner of leftist blogger Brad Friedman who frequently plays fast and loose with the facts. They are both involved with a group called Velvet Revolution which also receives funding from the Tides Foundation.
JTMP has received at least $70,000 in grants from the far-left Tides Foundation since 2006. The 2006 grant in the amount of $60,000 was for general operations which means JTMP could use the funds without restriction. The 2008 grant of $10,000 was also for general operations.
Another noteworthy donor is singer and liberal activist Barbra Streisand who has given JTMP at least $10,000 through her Barbra Streisand Foundation since 2006 ($5,000 in 2006 for general operations and $5,000 in 2008 for general operations).
And (potential first lady) progressive Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Senator John Kerry (D-Massachusetts). Mrs. Kerry is CEO of the Heinz Family Foundation which has given JTMP at least $20,000 since 2006 (the grant was earmarked for general operations).[…]“
Blogs and Twitter users are uniting today, May 25th, for Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.
Lee Stranahan is calling on bloggers to write about Kimberlin today Friday, May 25th.
This is no war of words; Kimberlin is a serial litigator who has filed over 100 lawsuits by his own account and he takes people to court, claiming they are harassing him. He calls their employers. I stand with all these people, some of whom are my friends. I’m launching a new effort on my own that I hope will help.
The only effective way I to fight Brett Kimberlin is for as many people to research and write about him as possible.
So I’m declaring this Friday, May 25th as Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.
Here’s the video Stranahan put together introducing us to Brett Kimberlin, aka the Speedway Bomber.
Rise up America, stand with the hundreds, perhaps thousands of small bloggers, tens of dozens of larger blogs, the handful of major national blogs including Michelle Malkin and The Blaze to spread the word about this creep. I fear its sound will be as a mouse’s fart against the hurricane but do it anyway, it really is your obligation.
Tiffany Gabbay of The Blaze provides a bullet list of Kimberlin’s background and trail of terror:
- Drug dealer, alleged child molester, and convicted perjurer, forger and Indiana Speedway Bomber (who is also believed to have played a role in the assassination of a grandmother), Brett Kimberlin, spent 17 years in prison before his ultimate re-absorption into American society
- He started a non-profit dubbed “Justice Through Music (JTM)” [http://www.jtmp.org/jtmp/index.php?q=about] that has, since at least 2005, been funded by George Soros’ Tides Foundation and Barbara Streisand among other leftists
- Along with his associate, Kimberlin also started an organization called “Velvet Revolution” [http://www.velvetrevolution.us/newVR] that supports the Occupy movement
- JTM’s goal is to use music to foster “social justice” and fight Republican “voter fraud” (like the kind George Bush allegedly used to “steal” the Florida election)
- Any blogger — conservative and liberal alike — who has written the truth about Kimberlin has come under vicious attack by either Kimberlin or his minions, suffering death threats (veiled and unveiled), multiple lawsuits, loss of jobs and worse
- He has filed over 100 frivolous lawsuits against anything that isn’t nailed down and somehow is being allowed to continue unchecked
- This story has never been reported on in the mainstream media
Many bloggers have already spoken up for Kimberlin’s victims and/or linked to related stories (let us know if we’ve missed you/someone… will add as we get them):

Update: Last night Ann Coulter tweeted the link to my earlier post calling on conservative bloggers to write about this.
Glenn Beck - Make sure everyone knows this Soros funded domestic terrorist: Brett Kimberlin
You probably don’t know his name. Kimberlin is a convicted domestic terrorist who went to prison after setting off a series of bombs and served 17 years of a 50 year sentence. Where’s he today? Working for Soros and terrorizing conservative bloggers. Glenn talks to two bloggers targeted by Kimberlin, their stories are chilling.
