Be prepared to enter an alternate universe bizarre beyond any stretch of what you thought even possible. And then keep reading, because this may be one of the most important exposes published on The Blaze to date. It will explain in frightening detail what it means to speak the truth at the expense of losing all you hold dear. And will reveal how easy it has been for one convicted domestic terrorist — backed by George Soros and Barbara Streisand alike — to use the U.S. legal system, as well as less desirable channels, to silence those who have dared tell the story of one Brett Kimberlin, a.k.a. the “Speedway Bomber.”
For reasons unknown, the far-left seems to have a penchant for throwing their full-fledged support — emotional, political and financial — behind domestic terrorists (see: Bill Ayers) and their latest protege is no exception. Also known as the “Speedway Bomber,” Kimberlin set an Indiana town ablaze with a series of coordinated bombings in 1978, ultimately resulting in one man’s suicide (this was proven in a subsequent court case) after his limbs were irreparably damaged in the explosion.
Today, Kimberlin is the director and founder of “Justice Through Music (JTM),” a non-profit organization that “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 John Kerry’s wife, Teresa Heinz-Kerry.
Los Angeles County Assistant District Attorney Patrick Frey who blogs under the moniker “Patterico,” started writing about Kimberlin in October of 2010 after the late conservative pundit Andrew Breitbart noted the hypocrisy of Kimberlin’s business partner, Brad Friedman, in scorning the “tactics” of James O’Keefe when he went undercover to expose ACORN voter fraud. Shortly thereafter, Frey received an email from Kimberlin threatening to sue if he did not retract his story. Since the Speedway Bomber was unable to prove why any of Frey’s entries were untrue, he decided to escalate the situation to unthinkable heights.
According to the account, Kimberlin proceeded to call Frey’s secretaries, telling them that the assistant district attorney was a “racist, a homophobe, and a stalker” and that he would be filing a restraining order against him. The convicted perjurer subsequently filed complaint with state bar association as well, a move that was heavily publicized by Kimberlin-accomplice and Democratic consultant Neal Raushauser.
Essentially, a yet-to-be identified man (but one who sounds much like a Kimberlin associate, according to Frey) placed a call to law enforcement the evening of July 1, 2011, to announce that he had just shot his wife. The man then proceeded to give the operator Frey’s home address. Of course, the call was intended to make it look like Fey had just confessed to murdering his wife at his home. Just after midnight, a SWAT team descended on Frey’s doorstep, screaming at the top of their lungs for the attorney to place his hands behind his head. They arrested him and dragged him to the patrol car while simultaneously dragging his wife out of bed.
This was important, and Andrew Breitbart understood why it was important: The “TwitterGate” episode in October 2010 exposed Democrat operative Neal Rauhauser’s role in an apparent conspiracy to harass Tea Party activists online. Shortly thereafter, Mandy Nagy (aka “Liberty Chick”) documented Brett Kimberlin heinous criminal history.
Kimberlin and his “Velvet Revolution” partner Brad Friedman teamed up to urge Maryland authorities to prosecute James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. At some point, according to Kimberlin, he became an “associate” of Rauhauser.
Now, investigative journalist Matthew Vadum has shown that major “progressive” tax-exempt foundations contributed tens of thousands of dollars to Kimberlin’s “Justice Through Music Project” and “Velvet Revolution” non-profits.
Money is fungible, as they say. The funding of Kimberlin’s projects — tens of thousands of dollars from the George Soros-connected Tides Foundation, as well as foundations associated with Barbra Streisand and Sen. John Kerry’s wife — thus supported all of Kimberlin’s activities, including his effort to have O’Keefe and Giles prosecuted for their ACORN takedown.
Now, it gets interesting: A site called “Breitbart Unmasked” has published a list of what it calls “The Breitbart Crew,” including everyone from Brent Bozell III to Dave Weigel of Slate.
Patterico and Worthing suspect “Breitbart Unmasked” and Brett Kimberlin are one and the same. On Twitter last night, @BreitbartUnmask denied being Brett Kimberlin, but it is curious to observe how people who tell the truth about Kimberlin become the subject of attacks from ”Breitbart Unmasked.”
t was about ten minutes before 10 p.m. on Sept. 1, 1978 when the first two bombs went off. A third exploded at 10:45. They'd been placed in trash cans and dumpsters and no one had been close enough to be hurt, but the blasts were plenty large enough to do some real damage.
Still, it seemed like it might have been the work of teenage boys, who may have been sufficiently startled by their own handiwork to reconsider how they spent their idle time.
But the next night another bomb went off, and then another.
On the fifth night, a Speedway police cruiser was blown up. It was parked at the Big Eagle Apartments, at 19th Street and Cumberland Road, where Patrolman Steve W. Turner lived. Turner was on vacation so the cruisier had been parked unused for a while. Earlier in the day, police had responded to a false bomb threat at the Coca-Cola plant on 25th Street, and some wondered if that had been a diversion to keep them occupied while the real bomb was planted.
So far there had been no serious injuries -- just some cuts from debris, but no one had been very close when the bombs went off. On the sixth night, that changed.
It was at Speedway High School where the freshman football team had just played a game and the players were still getting dressed. Hundreds of parents and students were either waiting in their cars or walking through the parking lot after the game.
A Speedway High School gym bag had been left by itself, as if forgotten by a player. One of the parents, Carl DeLong, 39, walked over to retrieve it when the bomb went off. His right leg was nearly blown off and his left leg and right hand were severely damaged. Doctors tried to save his leg but had to amputate.
Meanwhile at a different store, a Westside print shop, the proprietor was becoming suspicious of customer who wanted to reproduce military drivers licenses. The shop owner called the U.S. Army and when the customer came back, on Sept. 20, an Army investigator was there too. The customer was wearing a security guard's uniform with Department of Defense insignia. It was Brett Kimberlin.
This gave the bombing investigators a break because Kimberlin had violated federal law by wearing the DoD insigina. They obtained a search warrant to inspect the car he'd driven to the print shop. In the trunk they found timers just like the ones used for the bombs, and they found chemical traces of Tovex, the explosive used in the bombs. Now investigators felt convinced Kimberlin was their man, but they didn't pursue charges yet because they needed a stronger case.
A few months later Kimberlin got himself arrested again. He was in Texas with another man, trying to rent a small airplane. Investigators down there soon found out that the men had also rented construction equipment with which they'd built a small landing strip in the desert. On the night of Feb. 16, 1979, federal agents watched as a plane loaded with Colombian marijuana approached the little airstrip. But there was a heavy fog that night and the pilot radioed that he could not land at the makeshift airport and would have to set down at real airport nearby -- but that meant he had to dump the cargo from the air. The men on the ground, and the agents observing them, converged in the desert. Nine men were arrested, including Brett Kimberlin.
