Brett Kimberlin Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying, Love The Bomb And Became A Prison Boy Toy
Today's blogospheric Progressive all star, Brett Kimberlin, has many faces, none of them that he wants you to know, or see. h/t Wizbang for the raw images used in the composite below. From small-time, small town drug dealer who went on an evil bombing spree, to federal inmate, become jail house lawyer, who went on to re-invent himself as a Progressive activist after gaining his release, this is Brett Kimberlin and today is his day of infamy across the Right-leaning blogosphere.
Unfortunately, at approximately 5'5" of slender young white meat and would be prison badass, I suspect the only come to Jesus moments Brett Kimberlin enjoyed during his time in federal lock up had more to do with perhaps unsolicited encounters in shower stalls and prison cells out of earshot of guards, than a prison chapel. Too bad he turned to political misdeeds and dirty tricks for any alleged salvation, rather than a higher calling. Here is how he got his start in 1988, after 9 years quite likely as Bubba and companies prison f*ck toy. I suspect that had far more to do with Brett Kimberlin wanting to get out of prison, than being anything like the poor, politically oppressed inmate the media went on to portray him to be. Yes, little Brett totally punked NPR's Nina Totenberg, who launched his dastardly and dishonest career as a political activist and serial politics-based terrorist by exploiting America's legal system.
Approximately one month before the 1988 presidential election Brett Kimberlin, who was incarcerated in federal prison since 1979, talked to National Public Radio reporter Nina Totenberg about his allegations of selling marijuana to vice president Dan Quayle in the 1970s. Shortly thereafter, Totenberg, without disclosing Kimberlin as the source, asked the deputy press secretary of the Bush-Quayle campaign, Mark Goodin, to comment on the allegations. When Goodin declined to comment without more information on who was making the allegations, Totenberg provided a signed affidavit from Kimberlin.
On November 3, 1988, five days before the presidential election, NBC News asked the prison warden at El Reno, Oklahoma, where Kimberlin was incarcerated, for an on-camera interview with Kimberlin. Prison authorities offered to schedule the interview on Wednesday of the following week, its regular scheduling day for media interviews. Because that day would be after the election, NBC asked that the interview take place before the election.
Kimberlin was released from detention the following day. He later attempted to give an interview to a group of reporters by telephone. He was then seized in his cell by six guards, handcuffed, marched to the detention unit in the cold, strip-searched and placed in a small cell. Prison officials issued the order, “No more calls for this inmate.” This order has been described by El Reno officials as unusual. Kimberlin remained in administrative detention for a week until well after the election. A month later, when the press again began to pay attention to Kimberlin’s allegations, the bureau again returned him to administrative detention. The Bureau of Prisons violated prison rules in its effort to silence Kimberlin.
Memeorandum is fast filling up with links, headed up by a shocking story posted at Patterico's blog. Yet, that's only one chilling tale from Kimberlin's long and still growing list of crimes and misdeeds, including felonies, from the record and rap sheet of Brett Kimberlin, a man embraced by some of the most powerful Progressives and their institutions in American politics.
Shame on them for embracing and empowering such a small, evil man, all this time ignoring his pathetic and pathological actions, only because he assisted them in moving their ideological and political objectives forward. Finally, the real face of Brett Kimberlin may be the ugly one of an immoral and un-American political movement, contemporary Progressivism, heralded by Barack Obama as far back as 1996, in re-making this great nation into something it was never intended to be.

Friend and colleague Lee Stranahan has an item posted with some solid research links, if you want to do your own digging into his sickening history. Again, here is Patterico's chilling tale first told today. John Hawkins has an interview with Kimberlin's current and latest victim, Stacy McCain – I'll say it this once and hopefully only this once – visit Stacy's site and hit his tip jar.
With too many truly good posts being done to link them all, I'll again refer you to Memorandum's Brett Kimberlin blog burst tracking link, now sitting atop their main page, and close with a personal note of support and care for friends like Liberty Chick and fellow bloggers such as Patterico, Aaron Walker (blogging as Aaron Worthing), and others, who suffered far too long in silence in the grip of this evil man. Know today we are here for you, my friends, this day is far more yours in my heart, than any day will ever be a day for a scumbag like Brett Kimberlin.
