The Internet a proctologist’s dream come true

As Stacy McCain explains, so many assholes

Regular readers of this blog need no introduction to Neal Rauhauser, the disgraced former Democrat campaign consultant and associate of bomber/progressive activist Brett Kimberlin. Most recently, Bullyville has vowed to put Neal Rauhauser in prison.

Last month, Rauhauser did something so astonishingly vicious even I was shocked, despite my familiarity with Neal’s evil dishonesty. But I put it aside until today — Veteran’s Day — when I saw Rauhauser using one of his (innumerable) Twitter sockpuppet accounts to talk about his admiration for the military, the lying wretch

Everybody knows how proud I am of my children, and you know that it’s been more than two weeks since we’ve heard from our Army son, who is enduring an ordeal known as “Three Weeks in Hell.”

My wife has been praying constantly, and I’ve been trying to put it out of my mind, because there’s no point worrying about it. But exactly one month ago, on Oct. 11, this is what Neal Rauhauser did on Twitter:

Ah yes, the Troll Train has left the Crazy Station

One thing I have been fairly lucky at is dodging trolls since I started this blog four years ago. Not that I try to suppress my opinions, or anything like that, I have just been, so far, fortunate not to have too many nut jobs to deal with. Stacy McCain, however, is still dealing with members of the Brett Kimberlin/Neal Rauhauser Church of the Troll Train, as he describes today

In the laundry room of the motel today, a fellow let me borrow his detergent to save me the $1 it would cost to buy detergent from the vending machine. We got talking. Turns out he’s a Butler County resident who has already voted early for Mitt Romney and who will take Tuesday off work to volunteer as a poll watcher. My new friend’s cheerful kindness was a pleasant contrast to the incessant bombardment of menacing messages sent out on Twitter by Bill Schmalfeldt, one of the minor characters who have lately jumped aboard Neal Rauhauser’s Crazy Troll Train (see, “E-MAIL TO LARRY SINCLAIR“).

Once you know their motives and methods, these monsters aren’t nearly so scary at they’d like to be, and the real horror of their behavior is the soul-chilling realization of what sick pleasure they derive from it. Healthy minds do not delight in plotting evil against others, and wholesome spirits do not endlessly threaten others with harm they intend to inflict.

Among all the depraved characteristics Neal Rauhauser has displayed, nothing so marks him as a warped personality as his sadistic glee in threatening people this way. And the fact that Schmalfeldt and Larry Sinclair are now assisting Rauhauser’s perverse project speaks volumes, not only about their own innate depravity, but also their weak-mindedness, in making themselves willing henchmen of such a notoriously dishonest person as Neal.

You can check the sorted history of Kimberlin, and Rauhauser and their cult-like followers here I, like many other bloggers took a stand against the douche nozzles harassing and threatening RS McCain, and other bloggers last year. To me freedom of speech is too precious to surrender, and no one will dissuade me from speaking out, or speaking up. Especially when that involves taking the side of a fellow blogger, and friend.

Nope, I have not forgotten about Neal Rauhauser or Brett Kimberlin

Neither has Bob Belvedere, who has been all over this story since it broke. Today he posted some eye-opening info that you ought to read

One aspect of Brett Kimberlin’s life story that’s easy to forget is the incidents that led him to commit those acts of domestic terrorism that won him the title of The Speedway Bomber.  They involve the possible rape of a young girl, possibly starting at the age of ten, and the brutal murder of that girl’s Grandmother.

Yesterday, Stacy McCain provided us with some of the sordid details of this aspect of the story of Brett Kimberlin.  A highlight:

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION

We do not actually know the name of the girl who was reportedly “groomed” by Brett Kimberlin. Mark Singer used the pseudonym “Jessica” for Sandi Barton’s youngest daughter, whereas a 1981 news article by Joe Gelarten of the Indianapolis Star used the name ”Debbie.”

Jessica/Debbie was 10 years old when Kimberlin, 20 at the time, entered her life in 1974, and she was 14 when her grandmother, 65-year-old Julia Scyphers, was murdered – a crime that remains officially unsolved to this day.

Bob also links to some possibly bad news for Rauhauser, the noose may be getting a tad tight

Retired Chicago Police Officer Peter Bella knows exactly what the Kimberlin/Rauhauser Cell are up to, as you will see by reading his latest column here [tip of the fedora to Aaron Walker]: This item from that post is very interesting [and some damn good investigative reporting]:

A self-described “black” operator, who demands to remain anonymous, knows Neal Rauhauser. He claims Rauhauser is an “extremely dangerous individual”. He said Rauhauser is not only a dangerous political and digital operative; he is “personally dangerous”.

Neal Rauhauser owes close to thirty five thousand dollars in back child support, which is a state and federal crime. His children are reportedly on state Medicare. Yet, he shows up in public places, like courtrooms without fear of arrest*. He travels the country in his quest for clients, public exposure, and big money. He allegedly invests heavily in computers and technology.

Rauhauser claims to work or worked for Infraguard, a public and private security partnership run under the auspices of the F.B.I. According to their website all members must pass a rigorous background check. That kind of check would have prohibited Rauhauser from being a member and possibly led to his arrest.

___
*Warrants are supposedly being reissued for Mr. Rauhauser’s arrest for being a ‘dead beat dad.’ There is also an allegation Rauhauser has an outstanding unspecified criminal warrant in Illinois.

Stacy McCain also notes a set back for Kimberlin in Maryland

Yes, I am still blogging about Brett Kimberlin, and his super spy sidekick, Neal Rauhauser!

Stacy McCain has a very informative post up about Rauhauser’s “on-line personas” and his tactical blunders, not to mention Rauhauser’s denial of his own culpability in his screw-ups. Go read it all here is a small taste

What the astute reader will discern is Rauhauser’s repeated efforts to impress others with his assertions of expertise. It appears that his 2010 TwitterGate debacle was a misguided attempt by Rauhauser to make himself a hero to the Progressive online community by waging a Twitter war against the Tea Party. Sir Neal planned to ride out and slay the Tea Party dragon, but instead got his virtual ass handed to him by Patrick Read, Greg Howard, Zapem and others.

Unable to accept responsibility for his failures, Rauhauser scapegoated his enemies and has spent the past 18 months trying to redeem himself by slaying some other dragon: Patrick Frey, James O’Keefe, Aaron Walker, Ace of Spades — any target will do, just as long as Rauhauser can claim “victory” and strut before his admirers as a dragon-slaying White Knight.

Once again, however, Rauhauser has committed a tactical blunder that anyone with infantry training will recognize: He’s marched into an L-shaped ambush, hit the trip-wire that exploded the Claymore mines, and now finds himself pinned down in the kill-zone by heavy fire from forces he did not expect to encounter.

Neal’s paranoia is, in some sense, justified: For the past year or so, those whom he has targeted have been watching his online activity very closely. All the things he tried to “scrub” from the Internet? Screen-capped, cached and securely stored offline.

One of the intended victims of Rauhauser’s smears told me the other day: “I had to get a new computer just to hold all the stuff I’ve got on Neal. External hard drives, CD-ROMs — I’ve got sh*tloads of it, so much I can’t even keep track of it all.”

Bob Belvedere is also covering this and links to the Lisa Grass Radio Show, where Stacy talked about Team Kimberlin last night

Lisa Graas was able to broadcast her Blog Talk Radio show unmolested last night [you should be able to listen to it here].  Her guest was Stacy McCain, who provided a useful summary of the whole La Cosa Kimberlin Saga.  Bravo to Lisa, Rebecca Diserio, and the rest of the gang at Fidelis Radio for not giving-in to the bastards who tried to intimidate them.

Check back for more updates later

Neal Rauhauser’s cowardly tactics on display! UPDATED!

Intimidation is, perhaps the last, desperate act of the intellectually inferior. I turn, once again, to Stacy McCain, blogging about  the deplorable tactics of one Neal Rauhauser

Neal Rauhauser has attacked his enemies with a “lawfare” strategy similar to the methods his client, Brett Kimberlin, used to get blogger Aaron Walker arrested last month. Last year, Rauhauser filed a spurious criminal complaint against an Alabama man whom he accused of “inciting people to find and harm me.”

Rauhauser last year joined forces with Kimberlin’s 501(c) tax-exempt non-profit Velvet Revolution and has evidently been engaged in a relentless Internet-based effort aimed at critics of Kimberlin, a convicted felon notorious as Indiana’s “Speedway Bomber.”

In 2010, Rauhauser was involved in a scandal known as “TwitterGate.”Using a Twitter account called @WingNutWatch, Rauhauser was accused of having “organized a group of E-Thugs meant to harass, threaten, provoke, disparage, intimidate, verbally assault, berate & employ hate-speech against those not in agreement with his brand of politics,” to cite blogger Patrick Read’s September 2010 description.

One of the primary targets of the TwitterGate harassment — by a group of Twitter accounts Rauhauser called his ”beandog militia” — was an Alabama resident named Greg W. Howard. A Marine veteran and financial advisor who is also a political blogger, Howard is a popular Tea Party activist on Twitter, where his account has more than 20,000 followers. As part of an apparently orchestrated campaign of provocation, a series of vicious and obscene messages were directed at Howard in 2010. (Warning: Extremely graphic language.)

Several words come to mind upon reading this garbage. Cowardly is one, thuggish is another, as well as despicable, evil, and maybe most of all threatening. Rauhauser, not being as smart as he thought, was exposed, and, like  a true Leftist, immediately went into “victim mode”, as Stacy points out here

On Aug. 31, 2010, the same day he declared his intent to go after “right wing cells,” Rauhauser created a sock-puppet account he called “WingNutWatch,” which then acted as a sort of Twitter ringleader for the effort he described. It took less than a month, however, for Greg Howard, Patrick Read and @ZapEm to document the malicious actions of Rauhauser and his “beandogs,” resulting in the “WingNutWatch” account being shut down by Twitter.

Rather than acknowledging his responsibility for the episode that soon became known as TwitterGate, Rauhauser claimed to be the victim of a right-wing conspiracy, and began plotting revenge against those who had exposed his activities. In August 2011, shortly after Rauhauser moved to Washington, D.C., and joined forces with Kimberlin’s Velvet Revolution, he sent the following complaint against Greg W. Howard to the Alabama state attorney general’s office:

Dear Sirs,
Over the last eleven months, a man named Greg W. Howard, of Headland, Alabama, has constantly menaced me via the Internet. He has, in a verifiable fashion, done the following:
Published information to the effect that he knows where my ex-wife and children live, encouraging his tens of thousands of followers on Twitter to attack them in some fashion.
Published a list of my consulting customers, incited his followers to interfere with my business, and this has happened in a documented fashion on several occasions.
Appeared on a blogtalk radio show run by domestic extremist Sharon Meroni, in my home state of Illinois, inciting people to find and harm me, to interfere with my business, and so forth.
Published many sorts of libel about me, which are visible on http://scribd.com/nrauhauser, and this includes having incited Robert Stacy McCain, a man characterized by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an extremist and member of League of the South, to repeat his smears.
Incited Joe Ballard, a resident of Catawba, SC, to make a credible threat against me, which was investigated by the FBI hate crimes group in October of 2010.
He is careful that no individual crosses the line from menace to actual threat. I hope that the AG’s office will consider the frequency and duration of his conduct, as well as the fact that he successfully incited one well documented threat, and investigate more fully. There are literally dozens of victims with stories similar to mine.
Neal Rauhauser

This is a sick game only the lowest of the low would play. Again, this proves my warning to anyone who has a blog and intends to cover this type of thing. You can believe, with all your heart that when the left uses the term “by any means necessary”, they mean it! For Rauhauser and his ilk, it would seem that threatening people’s children is not beyond their sick minds. Nor is seeking to use “lawfare” to silence those they disagree with. So, be warned, if you are a Conservative blogger, or even a Liberal blogger be aware of what running afoul of these miscreants means. It means you might become a target of their wrath. Of course, if you, or I or any of us allow ourselves to be bullied into silence, well, then, the bullies will have won. To me, that is simply an unacceptable outcome.

Be sure to go read more of Stacy’s post

Update! Apparently Neal Rauhauser is either a SUPER SPY! Or he is just a paranoid douche nozzle. Stacy has the details, you make the call.

You know, everybody should still be blogging about Brett Kimberlin, and Neal Rauhauser

Lots to update, and Bob Belvedere has been all over this

-Stacy McCain has filed three more reports since last Friday that help to further expose Neal Rauhauser for the evil and delusional danger he is to decent people.

=On Saturday, he filed a report on some of the latest news in  the saga of La Cosa Kimberlin and commented:

Every day, we grab hold of some piece of the Kimberlin saga — some previously unreported fact or overlooked detail, some development on the legal or political front — and we push it as hard as we can, making the story new and fresh every day. One month into this epic battle of informational warfare, there is now a nationwide readership of thousands following this story with fascinated interest, and I am keenly aware of the need to keep moving the ball down the field, like a football team driving toward a touchdown.

It’s so important that we keep this story alive and one of the best ways to do that is by we, the rank and file of The Army Of Davids, doing the research and spreading the word.

=On Sunday, Stacy exposed Neal Rauhauser’s method of thought by publishing items that he had removed from the Internet — but, of course, such items rarely completely disappear.  A highlight:

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION

Earlier this year, Neal Rauhauser “scrubbed” from the Internet several of his online writings in an apparent attempt to conceal evidence that he has been cyberstalking and harassing his enemies, including the late Andrew Breitbart, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe and the group of Tea Party activists who exposed Rauhauser’s role in the 2010 “TwitterGate” scandal.

Cached versions of Rauhauser’s deleted posts were preserved by some of the conservatives he targeted, and show Rauhauser’s fetish for secrecy and his obsession with his various enemies….

The examples of Rauhauser’s writings are useful examples of the man’s demented state of mind, but they also show he is a functioning mentally unbalanced person.

=In his latest from earlier today, Stacy questions why law enforcement officials have seemingly not acted on the evidence at hand:

We are at the point of the story where, if this was a TV crime drama, the detectives would have the suspects locked in a room, confronting them with the evidence and interrogating them for 14 consecutive hours until they cracked.

Is the FBI incompetent? Or — I hesitate to suggest this — has the Justice Department become so corrupted that even the FBI’s hard-won reputation for integrity has been compromised?

This is why Neal Rauhauser’s repeated boastings about his contacts in the FBI disturb me. We know that Rauhauser is a liar and a braggart, but what if he’s actually telling the truth about his cozy relationship with law enforcement? What if the FBI and other law enforcement agencies have actually bought into Rauhauser’s deceptions?

The Pit of Weirdness that is the Kimberlin saga just gets deeper and weirder!

The latest on the Brett Kimberlin/Neal Rauhauser/blogger intimidation stories

The story gets longer, weirder, more compelling, and gets a few more twists every day.

An Ex-Con posts his email exchange with Neal Rauhauser, which makes for interesting reading, to say the least

Da Tech Guy notes the oddity of the imagined victim hood of some, and the real victimizing they engage in

This collected piece of work is continues to reveal the piece of work Kimberlin & Company are and continue to be. Take a look at Stacy McCain’s latest, for those who don’t want to go through 2414 works here is the meat and potatoes.

By now the astute reader understands – and I don’t really have to point this out do I? — that Kimberlin and Rauhauser’s belief in an imaginary conspiracy of their enemies led them into creating an actual conspiracy of their own.

It’s all right there, you see: Presenting himself as an agent of Velvet Revolution, Rauhauser elicited assistance from members of Anonymous in a conspiracy that “put Breitbart & Co. square in their gunsights.” What did Rauhauser mean by that expression? What manner of activity did Anonymous agree to conduct against the target “in their gunsights”? We don’t know.

What we do know is that, once more, Rauhauser’s compulsive bragging has led to the exposure of one of his schemes.

Of course, the Left has been doing that for a long time. They accuse Republicans of the very thing THEY, themselves do. Then they whine and play the victim. Stacy offers up more on the tactics of Neal Rauhauser

Neal Rauhauser is crazy and not nearly as smart as he thinks he is, and his boastful arrogance has been his downfall before. So it is again.

In a message posted in the comments of a blog in October 2011, Rauhauser explained that he and someone he describes as “a very big dog from the Anonymous pen” conspired to use Brett Kimberlin’s non-profit Velvet Revolution as a vehicle to exact vengeance on (a) his personal enemies, (b) the security firm HB Gary and (c) “Breitbart associates.”

The campaign of harassment and intimidatiion we have seen carried out in recent months apparently is the product of that game plan — and Rauhauser boastfully explained how he developed that plan quite publicly more than eight months ago.

Stacy goes on to lay out his case

Before I share that with you, however, let me preface it by explaining that the claim to victimhood that Rauhauser presents in this 970-word treatise is false. His exposure in the 2010 “TwitterGate” affair was the result of his open incitement of his s0-called “beandogs,” the gang of online thugs who obscenely harassed Tea Party activists on Twitter. His public Tweets to the “beandogs” were screen-capped and documented by Patrick Read, Michelle Lessick and others, and Rauhauser’s role was clearly evident.

Furthermore, exactly as with his current role in the Kimberlin case, Rauhauser had described – publicly and in advance – his plans for an online war against the Tea Party, in two posts at the forum Open Left:

 That was in August, not long after Rauhauser had been a speaker at the Netroots Nation conference. He was a consultant with the firm Progressive PST, which included several Democratic politicians (including Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva) among its clients.

Neal’s own description of his specialty? “Solving problems in the social media work space for political campaigns and causes.” But once he was busted in TwitterGate and someone called it to my attention, I did a post on Oct. 7, 2010 (“BUSTED! Video Documents Role of Democrat Consultant Neal Rauhauser in Smear Campaign Against Tea Party“) that was linked by Lonely ConservativeHouse of Eratosthenes,Liberty PunditsRight KlikVerum SerumI Own the World,Memeorandum and The Blaze, to name a few. On Oct. 9, 2010, I did afollow-up post noting Rauhauser’s reaction to the exposure:

Rauhauser deleted [his “WingNutWatch” Twitter] account and protected [his personal Twitter account], the kind of gesture a detective might say was indicative of “consciousness of guilt.”
The obvious question: If Rauhauser has nothing to hide, why is he hiding? Let me suggest an obvious answer: Rauhauser is becoming an embarrassment to his Democratic clients, especially Arizona 7th District Rep. Raul Grijalva.
Rauhauser had boasted of his relationship with Grijalva — who sent the consultant a “thank you” note — and like so many other previously “safe” Democratic incumbents this year, Grijalva is in the toughest re-election battle of his career.

In late September 2010 — before I even noticed TwitterGate, but after Read, Lessick and others had begun exposing the “beandogs” operation – Rauhauser clearly realized his scheme was busted. Caught attempting to victimize others, Rauhauser declared himself the realvictim in a Daily Kos post entitled, “Tea Party Stalks Me & My Kids.”

This tendency toward self-pity, blaming others for problems that he himself caused, appears to be a deeply engrained personality trait with Rauhauser. Incapable of accepting responsibility for his own failures, Rauhauser psychologically projects responsibility onto scapegoats, whom he demonizes and accuses of malicious motives and actions, as a means of justifying his attacks on them, attacks that he encourages others to join.

You also should read The Lonely Conservative on the “Real Velvet Revolution”

The name of one Convicted Speedway Bomber Brett Kimberlin’s “non-profit” groups is Velvet Revolution. His Wikipedia page and the website of his bogus tax-exempt charitable organization are at the top of Google.

Now someone is trying to do something about that.

On November 19, 1989, the people of Prague, in the former state of Czechoslovakia, gathered to commemorate a massacre of Czech students by Nazi Germany fifty years earlier. By the end of the day, the gathering turned into a demonstration against a ruling  Communist government that had begun massacring Czechs and Slovaks from virtually the moment the Nazis were booted out. By December 29, 1989, without a shot fired, the protesters had driven out their Communist masters, electing poet, playwright, and political prisoner Vaclav Havel as interim President. This peaceful revolt by a peaceful people against their Stalinist puppet government became known as the “Velvet Revolution”.

[…]

Brett Kimberlin, and his associate Brad Friedman, do not own the name “Velvet Revolution”. They do not, and cannot, claim trademark or copyright protection in the term, because in the realm of politics, where Kimberlin and Friedman seek to meddle, the term “Velvet Revolution” is more generic than “Jell-O”.

Likewise, we do not own the name “Velvet Revolution”. No one owns the term. The Czechs and Slovaks who put their lives on the line in 1989 have a pretty strong moral claim, but they’re all in MittelEuropa. The Czechs and Slovaks have bigger problems than one terrorist moonbat making a mockery of a First Amendment that they don’t have anyway.

So we’re taking the name back, for them.

Help them out by linking to them if you have a blog, tweeting their links, posting it on facebook or whatever social networking tool you may use.

This is the real Velvet Revolution.

There is a ton more out there. More and more of Congress is taking notice, but much of the media has been silent. Maybe because they do not see ratings in this story, maybe because they see it as just those “bloggers” going at one another. But, rest assured this story is important to anyone who values their right to freedom of speech. And also to anyone who truly wants to stamp out cyber bullying, which certainly seems to describe what is going on here.
