Glenn talks to bloggers about Brett Kimberlin Terrorism

This morning The Blaze broke one of the most important exposes that they have ever done.  Brett Kimberlin is a domestic terrorist who went to prison after setting off a series of bombs and served 17 years of a 50 year sentence before his ultimate re-absorption into American society.

Where’s he today? Working for Soros and terrorizing conservative bloggers. “You need to know who this man is,” Glenn said to listeners this morning. “He is now being funded by George Soros, the Tides Foundation, Barbara Streisand, Teresa Heinz-Kerry. His rap sheet includes forgery, perjury, drug dealing, domestic terrorism, possible murder; possible child molestation – he’s a sociopath, many believe a pathological liar.”

“He’s raising a steady stream of money from the left. He lives in Bethesda, MD – he’s 58 years old now,” Glenn cited. “And he’s raising this money because he’s saying ‘I will put conservative bloggers out of business’.”

Today, Michelle Malkin and other prominent conservative bloggers organized a blogburst to raise awareness of Kimberlin’s terrorism used to silence bloggers. Glenn, GBTV, and The Blaze are participating in this ‘day of exposure’ on who Glenn describes as “one of the most hideous people you’re ever going to meet.”

Glenn introduced listeners to two people that have “crossed paths” with Kimberlin and tried to expose him, Patrick Frey and Aaron Walker.

Glenn spoke with Pat first:

Pat explained that he is a blogger, and was friends with Andrew Breitbart. Andrew first him about Brett Kimberlin back in October of 2010, and that his website was going to be publishing a piece about him. Frey researched Kimberlin and decided to publish his own piece.

“Immediately after publishing my piece, Kimberlin threatened to sue me,” Pat told Glenn. “He told me that he filed over a hundred lawsuits, and another one against me would be no sweat – but it would cost me a lot of money. Then he complained to my workplace. He first called up two secretaries in my office – these poor secretaries – he told them that I'm a racist, a homophobe that I was stalking him, and that he was going to get a restraining order against me. And keep in mind that all I did was write a blog post about the guy. And he complained to my bosses at work, and then after that it got even uglier.”

Glenn asked Pat to describe what Kimberlin has been doing on his website, Occupy Accountability. Frey explained that someone on that website wrote a post that included the street address to his home, including pictures of Google street views and aerial views of his home. In the same post they also did the same to what they thought was Andrew Breitbart’s home. “He and his confederates have stalked people online and have published pictures of people from court documents. They will get somebody into court, and they get a picture of them while they're walking through the court house,” Frey explained.

Pat also explained that someone also made a call to the police claiming to be him, saying that he had shot his wife. They gave his address, so when the police came pounding on his door there was a helicopter flying overhead and pointed guns in his face.

Pat, whose day job is being a prosecutor, told Glenn that these types of attacks have happened to other critics of Kimberlin’s as well. You can read Pat’s full story on his blog and follow him on Twitter @Patterico.

Glenn also spoke with Aaron Walker, another target of Brett Kimberlin’s, who is also a lawyer and a blogger. Glenn foreshadowed to Walker’s story by telling listeners, “it ends with Kimberlin warning, “I would suggest, Mr. Walker, that you leave me alone,” to which Walker replied, “I will continue to tell the truth about you.” His life is in danger. He fears for his life. He has lost his job.”

Aaron explained that Kimberlin started coming after him because he was sueing another man, Seth Allen, who is actually a fairly liberal guy. Walker explained that Seth Allen was appalled by the way Kimberlin, a domestic terrorist, was being welcomed into liberal circles. “He kind of made it a crusade of his to try to expose the truth about this guy,” Walker said.

Allen reached out to Walker after Kimberlin sued him, he couldn’t take his case, but helped him find someone who could and gave him as much help as he could. “That was enough to put me on Kimberlin’s enemies list,” Walker said.

Walker went on to explain how Kimberlin filed a subpoena with Comcast and Google to obtain his identity (Walker had formerly blogged anonymously). Kimberlin filed a motion to quash those subpoenas by pointing out the Kimberlin had lied under oath in order to obtain the injunctions. Pointing this put Walker on a path to becoming ‘enemy number 1.’ And things continued to escalate from there. You can hear the full story in the interview above, and read the story with all of the documentation on Aaron’s blog. You can also follow Aaron on Twitter at @aaronworthing.

“Look, here's the thing.  Conservative bloggers, and Michelle Malkin is one of them, people have got to stand together,” Glenn said.  “And The Blaze, our bloggers, our journalists, GBTV, and GB Radio have dedicated today as we're going to participate and expose America to what is going on.  The bloggers have all gotten together and said, ‘please, can we do this together?  Can we all go and take these stories and tweet them.  I don't care what source you get them from.  If Michelle Malkin is doing it, Breitbart's doing it today, whoever's doing it today, tweet it, please. Put it on your Facebook.  Get the story, the whole story, and it's amazing.  The whole story is on TheBlaze.com right now, the front page, about the guy who is being funded by the Tides Foundation, George Soros' operation, Tides Foundation, Barbra Streisand, of all people, and more.  Teresa Heinz.  This is a dangerous situation, and sunlight is the best disinfectant.  We'll continue to follow the story, and we ask you to read it and pass it on to others because most people who are in this man's path are afraid.  There's strength in numbers.  Hopefully someday we'll see this story on the mainstream media.  Until that time, they'll continue to make themselves irrelevant by talking about things that you're not.”

In light of the national conversation surrounding the rights of free speech, religion and self-defense, Mercury One is thrilled to announce a brand new initiative launching this Father's Day weekend: a three-day museum exhibition in Dallas, Texas focused on the rights and responsibilities of American citizens.

This event seeks to answer three fundamental questions:

  1. As Americans, what responsibility do we shoulder when it comes to defending our rights?
  2. Do we as a nation still agree on the core principles and values laid out by our founding fathers?
  3. How can we move forward amidst uncertainty surrounding the intent of our founding ideals?

Attendees will be able to view historical artifacts and documents that reveal what has made America unique and the most innovative nation on earth. Here's a hint: it all goes back to the core principles and values this nation was founded on as laid out in the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights.

Exhibits will show what the world was like before mankind had rights and how Americans realized there was a better way to govern. Throughout the weekend, Glenn Beck, David Barton, Stu Burguiere, Doc Thompson, Jeffy Fisher and Brad Staggs will lead private tours through the museum, each providing their own unique perspectives on our rights and responsibilities.

What happened?

A New York judge ruled Tuesday that a 30-year-old still living in his parents' home must move out, CNN reported.

Failure to launch …

Michael Rotondo, who had been living in a room in his parents' house for eight years, claims that he is owed a six-month notice even though they gave him five notices about moving out and offered to help him find a place and to help pay for repairs on his car.

“I think the notice is sufficient," New York State Supreme Court Judge Donald Greenwood said.

What did the son say?

Rotondo “has never been expected to contribute to household expenses, or assisted with chores and the maintenance of the premises, and claims that this is simply a component of his living agreement," he claimed in court filings.

He told reporters that he plans to appeal the “ridiculous" ruling.

Reform Conservatism and Reaganomics: A middle road?

Senator Marco Rubio broke Republican ranks recently when he criticized the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act by stating that “there's no evidence whatsoever that the money's been massively poured back into the American worker." Rubio is wrong on this point, as millions of workers have received major raises, while the corporate tax cuts have led to a spike in capital expenditure (investment on new projects) of 39 percent. However, the Florida senator is revisiting an idea that was front and center in the conservative movement before Donald Trump rode down an escalator in June of 2015: reform conservatism.

RELATED: The problem with asking what has conservatism conserved

The "reformicons," like Rubio, supported moving away from conservative or supply-side orthodoxy and toward policies such as the expansion of the child and earned income tax credits. On the other hand, longstanding conservative economic theory indicates that corporate tax cuts, by lowering disincentives on investment, will lead to long-run economic growth that will end up being much more beneficial to the middle class than tax credits.

But asking people to choose between free market economic orthodoxy and policies guided towards addressing inequality and the concerns of the middle class is a false dichotomy.

Instead of advocating policies that many conservatives might dismiss as redistributionist, reformicons should look at the ways government action hinders economic opportunity and exacerbates income inequality. Changing policies that worsen inequality satisfies limited government conservatives' desire for free markets and reformicons' quest for a more egalitarian America. Furthermore, pushing for market policies that reduce the unequal distribution of wealth would help attract left-leaning people and millennials to small government principles.

Criminal justice reform is an area that reformicons and free marketers should come together around. The drug war has been a disaster, and the burden of this misguided government approach have fallen on impoverished minority communities disproportionately, in the form of mass incarceration and lower social mobility. Not only has the drug war been terrible for these communities, it's proved costly to the taxpayer––well over a trillion dollars has gone into the drug war since its inception, and $80 billion dollars a year goes into mass incarceration.

Prioritizing retraining and rehabilitation instead of overcriminalization would help address inequality, fitting reformicons' goals, and promote a better-trained workforce and lower government spending, appealing to basic conservative preferences.

Government regulations tend to disproportionately hurt small businesses and new or would-be entrepreneurs. In no area is this more egregious than occupational licensing––the practice of requiring a government-issued license to perform a job. The percentage of jobs that require licenses has risen from five percent to 30 percent since 1950. Ostensibly justified by public health concerns, occupational licensing laws have, broadly, been shown to neither promote public health nor improve the quality of service. Instead, they serve to provide a 15 percent wage boost to licensed barbers and florists, while, thanks to the hundreds of hours and expensive fees required to attain the licenses, suppressing low-income entrepreneurship, and costing the economy $200 billion dollars annually.

Those economic losses tend to primarily hurt low-income people who both can't start businesses and have to pay more for essential services. Rolling back occupational licenses will satisfy the business wing's desire for deregulation and a more free market and the reformicons' support for addressing income inequality and increasing opportunity.

The favoritism at play in the complex tax code perpetuates inequality.

Tax expenditures form another opportunity for common ground between the Rubio types and the mainstream. Tax deductions and exclusions, both on the individual and corporate sides of the tax code, remain in place after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Itemized deductions on the individual side disproportionately benefit the wealthy, while corporate tax expenditures help well-connected corporations and sectors, such as the fossil fuel industry.

The favoritism at play in the complex tax code perpetuates inequality. Additionally, a more complicated tax code is less conducive to economic growth than one with lower tax rates and fewer exemptions. Therefore, a simpler tax code with fewer deductions and exclusions would not only create a more level playing field, as the reformicons desire, but also additional economic growth.

A forward-thinking economic program for the Republican Party should marry the best ideas put forward by both supply-siders and reform conservatives. It's possible to take the issues of income inequality and lack of social mobility seriously, while also keeping mainstay conservative economic ideas about the importance of less cumbersome regulations and lower taxes.

Is this what inclusivity and tolerance look like? Fox News host Tomi Lahren was at a weekend brunch with her mom in Minnesota when other patrons started yelling obscenities and harassing her. After a confrontation, someone threw a drink at her, the moment captured on video for social media.

On today's show, Pat and Jeffy talked about this uncomfortable moment and why it shows that supposedly “tolerant" liberals have to resort to physical violence in response to ideas they don't like.
