Brett Kimberlin has a flair for intimidation. He targets anyone who dares to question his past and retaliates with bullying, threats, stalking home addresses of his victims posted online, endless lawsuits and threatening calls to employers. Anyone who dares to write about him finds themselves viciously attacked. He focuses his attacks on conservative bloggers. His job is now to terrorize and silence the perceived opposition. His aggression is legendary and he has helpers. He continues to be unapologetic.
Fox News reports:
"Using two popular leftist blogs, the 56-year-old from Bethesda, Md., has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from the public and left-leaning foundations by promising to put conservatives he disagrees with in jail, often with offers of large rewards. So farÂ—without successÂ—he has called for the arrest of Karl Rove, Andrew Breitbart, Chamber of Commerce head Tom Donohue, Massey Energy Chairman Don Blankenship and other high-profile public figures."
Who is Brett Kimberlin?
His tale started before his bizarre career of attacking conservative bloggers....
The Murder of Julia Scyphers
Kimberlin went on a bombing spree in 1978. He was convicted and it turns out that he planted bombs (one of which ultimately caused a man to commit suicide after losing his leg and sustaining other serious injuries) allegedly in order to cover up a murder involving a woman, Julia Scyphers, who was trying to shield her young daughter, Sandra Barton, from Kimberlin. Julia's husband heard the shot and arrived to see his wife shot in the head and just a glimpse of the perpetrator, speeding away.
Kimberlin was a suspect, as Julia shared her concern about him with friends and family before she died. The police started looking into this strange character, who had already had a felony record in his mid-twenties and was at that time, running a vegetarian restaurant that police suspected was a front for smuggling marijuana. This sounds like a bad movie, but it is all true.
The Bombing Spree
Kimberlin starting setting bombs off around this time and raised the suspicion of one shop owner when he requested reproductions of military drivers' licenses. Kimberlin returned to the shop and found an Army investigator awaiting him. The weird customer was wearing a security guard uniform with a Department of Defense insignia. As this was a violation of federal law, the police were able to bide their time to do a thorough search to build a strong case against him for the bombings.
Finally, investigators found that Kimberlin, along with others, was building an airstrip in the desert (no lie) and trying to rent a small airplane for marijuana smuggling purposes. Finally, Kimberlin was arrested and after much more drama, as reported by the indystar, he was convicted of the bombing, marijuana charges, and impersonating a Department of Defense security guard. The only possible witness to the murder, Julia's husband, died before he could testify. No additional arrests have been made with regard to her murder.
After Prison and the Fight for Progressive Causes
During his time in prison, Kimberlin received his law degree. After emerging from prison (amidst other strange occurrences dealing with Dan Quayle, then vice-presidential candidate and a settlement with the wife of the man who committed suicide after the bomb attack resulting in another brief visit in jail), in 2001, Kimberlin founded a non-profit organization "Justice through Music," and became a darling of the left. His organization "uses famous musicians and bands to organize, educate and activate young people about the importance of civil rights, human rights and voting. Since 2005, JTM collected $1.8 million in contributions from an illustrious list of donors including the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation, liberal songstress Barbara Streisand and Senator John Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz-Kerry," as reported by theBlaze.
Kimberlin a pathological lying sociopath and should have never been released from jail, as apparently his unrelenting anger, hunger for vengeance and conscious free life enable him to wreak havoc on anyone who dares to speak out against him. Google his name, the stories are fascinating and abundant, thanks to conservative bloggers working together to expose him.
