I have had to delay writing this article after several fits and starts due to my anger, rage and personal affront. I shall endeavor to be as calm and analytical as possible even as my gut clenches and roils in disgust, both at the players and at myself for being so incredulous as to be sucked in and used so poorly.
The reason? The dump yesterday of documents relating to the entire back story of “Everyone Draw Mohammad”, the fight with Brett Kimberlin, the firing of Aaron Walker, the involvement of Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Dan Backer, the ACLJ and Michelle Malkin in an escalating butt-hurt pissing contest arising out of the Anthony Weiner story that evolves into a multi-jurisdictional financial scam.
Why am I aware of this dump when not a word has been so much as breathed in the dextrosphere? Because I do not listen to just the right channel of my stereo, why should I limit my reading to only “conservative” blogs, news sites or channels? I want the full symphony, so I read a full spectrum for truth is truth no matter who says it or what their motivation is.
Without reading truth, one cannot know BS.
Aaron Walker (who blogged as Aaron Worthing) was involved as the proprietor of a blog known as “Everybody Draw Mohammad” that he apparently spent a considerable amount of time on, time during which he was a paid employee of a company that had no connection to the blog, and which became quite irate once they were made aware that he was spending time on it instead of the company’s business. This is a form of theft, the accepting of payment for services not rendered. Along with using the company’s facilities and computer network to foster his obsession, for the documents show that this behavior was in fact obsessive, leading to his termination. The reasons for his actual termination are set forth here:
The foregoing screen caps show the email exchange, Aaron’s justification for his actions prior to his termination and his former employer’s actual reasons for terminating Aaron, not the deception or the victimhood narrative!
This is someone whom I should give up my honor to believe, assist, give money to? A lying liar? A thief who steals time, resources and a paycheck from his employer by doing no work for the employer, only following his mania and hatred, thus endangering the employer’s livelihood, employees and facilities?
I became aware of the “official” narrative of this situation via Stacy McCain on his blog The Other McCain when Stacy began reporting on it in mid-May of this year, by linking to Aaron’s 24,000+ word screed and manifesto of victimhood published on Aaron’s blog Allergic to Bull. Of course, as I was (and I consider myself still to be) a neophyte conservative blogger, I was caught up in the seriousness of the apparent story and became involved by writing about Kimberlin. Still unaware of the fuller back story and how the various players were (and are) related to each other, I kept at it through the end of May and into June.
Being a former con-artist, I have a particular sensitivity to scams and cons and have written about my perceptions of certain overt cons as well as my suspicions of others. This last I published on June 9th, 2012 when I withdrew my support for the National Bloggers Club, an organization that had leaped to the assistance of Aaron Walker when he lost his job (not in May/June as one may assume from Aaron’s narrative) in January:
This is a screen cap from the document dump I have spent the past 12 hours delving into, a document dump made available by Bill Schmalfeldt, the editor at The Patriot-Ombudsman, at potential risk of prosecution.
To say that I started to smell something rotten with the NBC is an understatement and the document dump yesterday confirmed my guess and opened my eyes to a much more extensive scam, or as prosecutors like to say, a “scheme to defraud”.
Of course, if you have ever read my blog and the attacks that that small post engendered, you would be amazed! The amount of hate focused on me, the attacks, the hate! You would think my tiny blog, with an average readership of about 250 per day, was as influential as the Breitbart blogs! I was effectively silenced, my voice of reason and sanity, my questioning of that “smell” emanating from the folks involved pooh-poohed and ignored.
Yet, I kept digging in the background and probably brought more and more derision because I refused to “toe the line” set by these “faux” conservatives. The deeper I would dig, the more the data points appeared but there was no easily discernible pattern. I simply was not aware enough of the back story, the relationships and interconnections between players I had not heard of.
The level of distributed effort between, in chief, Aaron Walker, Patrick Frey, Mandy Nagy, “Dustin”, Seth Allen and various attorneys is simply mind boggling and not discernible without the emails contained in the aforementioned document dump. With these emails I can now see how many of the other later players in this scam were sucked in, including everyone who contributed to the Lee Stranahan fomented “Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day”, including myself.
If I had been aware of a tenth of the real back story, I would have run screaming in the other direction instead of lending my name and (somewhat tarnished) honor to it! How disingenuous to present patent falsehoods as “truth” to skew the narrative, establish victimhood and set in motion an elaborate financial scam involving a felon named Ali Akbar and associates of his in earlier financial scams aimed at conservative pocket-books like Dan Backer, using a switch con that when Ali was burned by liberals who posted the truth about his criminal past, switched into place Dan Backer and his associates for the real financial pay-off.
Con-Artist 101 stuff! Establish a front with someone who is personable and is touted as a stand-up guy (but whom you know to have skeletons that can be found out) to create a sympathetic figure helping out these poor put-upon victims in their hour of need. Co-opt in several “well-known” and recognizable names (Malkin, McCain, etc.) to give validity to the scam and wait with the real professional scammers in the wings for the opposition to find the skeletons of the front man (Ali). If they don’t do so immediately, behind the scenes, crank up the heat with fake SWATings, people taking photos of other bloggers homes (like mine, I still have no idea who did that or to whom they reported) to increase the possibility of the front-man’s skeletons being fully disclosed to hype up the narrative and polarize the blogosphere. Create an atmosphere where their voices are trusted and listened to (as well as generate hits that equal MONEY for monetized blogs like McCain’s and Malkin’s) and believed.
Generate outrage when the front-man is outed and slip in the real money-generating group, Dan Backer and DB Associates as a so-called “transparent” 501 c (3) non-profit, tie in the ACLJ and voila! The con is in place and ticking along nicely. Keep up the pressure by bringing in as co-signers other innocent conservative bloggers to keep sounding the alarm and generating cash-flow, defrauding as many conservatives as possible of their hard-earned money, rinse and repeat on a daily basis. When a nosy-Parker like Jerry Wilson, myself, Brooks Bayne or anyone else questions them or reveals parts of the con, go on the attack using Ali, Lee Stranahan, etc. as bully boys to silence the questioners. Get the deceived choir to go along and shut-down questions “until after the election” when the financial scam will be forgotten and the thieves vacation and begin planning their next con.
The document dump itself, the massive amount of emails and the blatant collusion evidenced by them is disgusting, sobering and enraging. I, as well as everyone who bought into the false narrative, have been manipulated, deceived and defrauded of our honor, time, belief and hard earned cash. This deceit does not accrue to any political party or real conservative organization, rather, it accrues to the individuals themselves, the organizations, blogs and/or publications they represent.
I expect that I will be vilified, attacked and abandoned by the few remaining folks that follow my blog because I dare attack the sacred cows of the dextrosphere, pointing out their questionable actions and questionable statements. I shall truly become a pariah among the right.
So be it! In the service of truth I will surrender all, in the path of redemption I will abandon man’s opinion of my actions and hold my head high. I will remove more of the tarnish from my honor before God by speaking the truth as I see it, the truth as I understand it, the truth as I know it.
