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.”

I think we can all agree, both on the Left and the Right, that children who have been caught up in illegal immigration is an awful situation. But apparently what no one can agree on is when it matters to them. This past weekend, it suddenly — and even a little magically — began to matter to the Left. Seemingly out of nowhere, they all collectively realized this was a problem and all rushed to blame the Trump administration.

Here's Rachel Maddow yesterday:

I seem to remember getting mocked by the Left for showing emotion on TV, but I'll give her a pass here. This is an emotional situation. But this is what I can't give her a pass on: where the heck was this outrage and emotion back in 2014? Because the same situation going on today — that stuff Maddow and the rest of the Left have only just now woken up to — was going on back in July 2014! And it was arguably worse back then.

I practically begged and pleaded for people to wake up to what was going on. We had to shed light on how our immigration system was being manipulated by people breaking our laws, and they were using kids as pawns to get it done. But unlike the gusto the Left is using now to report this story, let's take a look at what Rachel Maddow thought was more important back in 2014.

On July 1, 2014, Maddow opened her show with a riveting monologue on how President Obama was hosting a World Cup viewing party. That's hard-hitting stuff right there.

On July 2, 2014, Maddow actually acknowledged kids were at the border, but she referenced Health and Human Services only briefly and completely rushed through what was actually happening to these kids. She made a vague statement about a "policy" stating where kids were being taken after their arrival. She also blamed Congress for not acting.

See any difference in reporting there from today? That "policy" she referenced has suddenly become Trump's "new" policy, and it isn't Congress's fault… it's all on the President.

She goes on throughout the week.

On July 7, 2014, her top story was something on the Koch brothers. Immigration was only briefly mentioned at the end of the show. This trend continued all the way through the week. I went to the border on July 19. Did she cover it? Nope. In fact, she didn't mention kids at the border for the rest of the month. NOT AT ALL.

Do you care about immigrant kids who have been caught in the middle of a broken immigration system or not?

Make up your minds. Is this an important issue or not? Do you care about immigrant kids who have been caught in the middle of a broken immigration system or not? Do you even care to fix it, or is this what it looks like — just another phony, addicted-to-outrage political stunt?

UPDATE: Here's how this discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

Glenn gives Rachel Maddow the benefit of the doubt

Rachel Maddow broke down in tears live on her MSNBC show over border crisis.

Progressives think the Obamas are a gift to the world. But their gift is apparently more of the metaphorical kind. It doesn't extend to helpful, tangible things like saving taxpayers money. Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation upgrades around the planned site of the Obama Presidential Center. The catch is that Illinois taxpayers will have to cover $200 million of that cost. For a presidential museum.

Eight years of multiplying the national debt wasn't enough for Barack Obama. Old fleecing habits die hard. What's another $200 million here and there, especially for something as important as an Obama tribute center?

That's all well and good except Illinois can't even fund its pension system. The state has a $137 billion funding shortfall. That means every person in Illinois owes $11,000 for pensions, and there is no plan to fix the mess. Unless Illinois progressives have discovered a new kind of math, this doesn't really add up. You can't fund pensions, but you're going to figure out a way to milk the public for another $200 million to help cover the cost of a library?

It's hard to imagine who in their right mind would think this will be money well spent. Well, except for maybe Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who said, "The state's… investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent."

Some presidential overreach lasts longer than others.

The spending has already been signed into law, even though the Obama library has not received construction approval yet. Part of the holdup is that the proposed site is on public land in historic Jackson Park. That doesn't seem very progressive of the Obamas, but, you know, for certain presidents, you go above and beyond. It's just what you do. Some presidential overreach lasts longer than others.

Here's the thing about taxing the peasants so the king can build a fancy monument to himself – it's wrong. And completely unnecessary. The Obamas have the richest friends on the planet who could fund this project in their sleep. If the world simply must have a tricked-out Obama museum, then let private citizens take out their wallets voluntarily.

As the Mercury Museum proved this weekend, it is possible to build an exhibit with amazing artifacts that attracts a ton of visitors – and it cost taxpayers approximately zero dollars.

'The fool builds walls': China blasts Trump over tariffs

I can picture it now: Thousands of years ago, Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, standing before hordes of his followers, in the Qin Dynasty, with a bright red bamboo hat on, and chanting, "Build that wall!"

It took a couple centuries to build the thing, but it got built. And it has been carefully maintained over the last 2,000 years, but, today, the Great Wall of China is so massive that astronauts can see it during good weather conditions from the lower part of low Earth orbit. The wall boasts over 3,000 miles of towers and brick embankments, with over 1,200 miles of natural defensive barriers. It's worth mentioning that the Chinese government is also exceptionally good at imposing digital walls, so much so that China ranks worst in the world for internet freedom.

So it's a little strange to hear an editorial run by a major news network in China criticized President Trump for his proposal to build a large wall along the southern border of America.

"Following the path of expanding and opening up is China's best response to the trade dispute between China and the United States, and is also the responsibility that major countries should have to the world," the author wrote. "The wise man builds bridges, the fool builds walls."

Similarly, the Pope told reporters in 2016, "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel."

Don't throw stones at people who want to build walls when you live in place surrounded by walls.

If you've been to the Vatican, you know that it is surrounded by enormous walls. The same goes for all the celebrities who live in heavily walled compounds—a safety measure—but who have also vehemently criticized President Trump's plans to build a wall.

You know the adage: "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones at other people's glass houses." Perhaps the phrase needs an update: Don't throw stones at people who want to build walls when you live in place surrounded by walls.

An immaculate Nazi doctor hovers over newborn. He probes and sneers at it. "Take it away," he says. This is the very real process that Nazi doctors undertook during the era of Nazi Germany: Nazi eugenics, the studious, sterile search to find children who would define a pure breed for the German lineage. The Übermensch.

During a speech to a delegation of Italy's Family Association in Rome on Saturday, Pope Francis referred to this cruel Nazi practice, which he used as a comparison to the increasingly popular process throughout Europe of "ending" birth defects, by offering abortions to women who have babies with chromosomal defects.

Here are two passages from the Pope's remarks:

I have heard that it's fashionable, or at least usual, that when in the first months of pregnancy they do studies to see if the child is healthy or has something, the first offer is: let's send it away.

And:

I say this with pain. In the last century the whole world was scandalized about what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today we do the same, but now with white gloves.

When CNN got the quote, and it shocked them so much that they had to verify the quote with the Vatican—in other words, it didn't fit the usual narrative.

It didn't fit the usual narrative.

The Pope also addressed claims that he has dedicated himself to LGBTQ causes:

Today, it is hard to say this, we speak of "diversified" families: different types of families. It is true that the word "family" is an analogical word, because we speak of the "family" of stars, family" of trees, "family" of animals ... it is an analogical word. But the human family in the image of God, man and woman, is the only one. It is the only one. A man and woman can be non-believers: but if they love each other and unite in marriage, they are in the image of God even if they don't believe.

The media have largely seen Pope Francis as the cool Pope, as the Obama of Catholicism. It'll be interesting to see how abruptly and severely that perspective changes.
