The #BrettKimberlin Report D+20 Part II: Rauhauser – ‘The Lunatic Is In My Head’

14 June 2012 @ 21:42

And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I’ll see on the dark side of the moon

In expressing what may be preventing some reporters from reporting on Brett Kimberlin & His Associates, Stacy McCain hits on why many bloggers [especially myself] are having a hard time writing posts on this saga. 

Frankly, I am sympathetic to any reporter who might want to write about the Kimberlin story, but dreads the challenge of trying to explain it in a brief, concise news story that makes sense. I’ve written two American Spectator articles about it:

-May 29: Terror by Any Other Name
-June 8: Online Armageddon

Both of those articles were quite an ordeal to write because the story is so complex, and it’s easy to get “lost in the weeds.”…

I don’t know about you all, but a lot of the time my head spins into dizziness just trying to understand exactly who the players are, what the Hell they’re talking about, and making the connections necessary to see the big picture.  Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, Brad Friedman, Ron Brynaert, Nadia Naffe, Jeannie McBride, Jay Leiderman, Beandogs, Ed Frey, Lane Lipton, forget about all the aliases — remembering the names alone and who they are is enough to drive one mad [but we’ll get to the case of Neal Rauhauser in a few moments].  As Lee Stranahan put it: ‘There are aspects to the Kimberlin story that drive it straight off a cliff & into Crazy Weed land’.  It’s quite the complex and tangled narrative.  My efforts to take-in as much as possible have led to a dearth of blog posts over the past several weeks.  I just hope I have been able to give you a worthwhile taste of the whole story and why it is so important that these Leftist cut-throated barbarians be exposed, defanged, and brought to justice.

Thank the Good Lord for people like Stacy McCain, Mandy Nagy, and Dan Collins who are able to distill this cloudy mash into a clear liquid.  I defer to their skills and urge you to do the same.

Herewith, some of what’s been published today…

-In a report posted this Afternoon, Stacy covers a number of issues, including what Leftist blogger Seth Allen has endured at the hands of this wrecking crew and some of the schemes the Leftist ‘non-profit’ Velvet Revolution has engaged in.

-Patterico tells the story of how BreitbartUnleashed targeted one of his commentators.  A highlight:

But I would just like to focus on a particular post that really got my attention. It is a Breitbart Unmasked post that delved into marriage and divorce records of a commenter of mine, complete with a picture of the commenter’s house.

They have taken the post down, but I have all the screenshots. Of course, I am not going to post them here. My commenter deserves some level of privacy. However, he has authorized me to publish this generalized account of the post designed to terrorize him. And yes, it was intended to terrorize. There can be no innocent explanation for what you’re about to read.

Do take the time to click here and see what further disgusting behavior was unleashed against the commentator.

-John Hawkins compiles a list of the seven methods used to harass and intimidate conservatives.  A highlight [tip of the fedora to Darth Chipmunk]:

The harassment that seems to follow people who get caught in the crosshairs of Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin has started to put a spotlight on the staggering level of abuse that many activists, columnists, and bloggers on the Right have to endure just to exercise their First Amendment rights. If liberals had to deal with 1/10 of the same amount of harassment that conservatives do, it would be a front page story in every major paper in America and Barack Obama would be giving speeches about it. Unfortunately for those of us in the new media on the Right, we’re considered important enough on the Left to try to destroy us, but we’re not important enough to the Right to draw the funding we need to get appropriate legal protection, to properly investigate stories, and to insure that an independent blogosphere still exists five years from now (Sorry, pet peeve). Since many people are unaware of what goes on behind the scenes, it seems like a good time to catalogue just some of the tactics liberals are using to try to stifle free speech on the Right.

Do take the time to click here and read the rest.

-Over at The Sundries Shack, Tami Nantz [http://www.moms4sarahpalin.net/] relates her experience of being targeted by Leftist goons.  A snippet:

When I started blogging in 2008, I was completely new to the world of politics. I voted, but was otherwise completely uninvolved. I didn’t claim to be an expert, just a mom expressing my own opinion, learning alongside those gracious enough to read my scribbling. My topic, however, was big news–after all, she was the first Republican woman to ever be nominated for Vice President. The local newspaper soon learned about my blogging, and ran a feature article that was originally intended to be a tale of two opinions–pro and anti-Sarah Palin. Because I was the only one to respond, the reporter ran a full feature article in the local section about my blog. This infuriated some local reporters, who decided they’d have a bit of fun at my expense. I made the mistake of reading the posts that were being written about me, and in a moment that showed my complete ignorance of journalistic terms, I left a comment poking fun at the misspelling of the word “lede” in one of the articles. This sparked a bit of a firestorm and, in the local media, I paid dearly for it. (many posts that were written are no longer available) Leftists began leaving comments under the online article, and one lovely woman decided it would be funny to post my street address and phone number for those wishing to make calls for sexual services. (which was soon removed, at my request)

[Apologies to Mrs. Nantz for not having linked this sooner.]

-There’s an excellent report up over at PJ Media by David Horowitz and Jacob Laksin that succinctly explains how monies are laundered through organizations like the Tides Foundations and end up in the hands of people like convicted domestic terrorist and suspected pedophile Brett Kimberlin.  A highlight [tip of the fedora to W.J.J. Hoge]:

Until just a few years ago, Brett Kimberlin was a convicted drug dealer and terrorist doing 51 years in federal prison for planting eight roadside bombs in the town of Speedwell, Indiana. The last of those bombs left a man so severely disfigured that he committed suicide a few years later. An inveterate liar and con artist, Kimerblin managed to gain fame from prison in 1988 by falsely claiming to have sold drugs to then-presidential candidate Dan Quayle.

Kimberlin’s story doesn’t end there, however. Since his early release from prison in 2000, the convicted terrorist has found a second act: as the darling of America’s leading, tax-free progressive foundations. Kimberlin’s seamless transition from prison inmate to the beneficiary of left-wing philanthropy offers a stark illustration of the radical course that progressive foundations have adopted. As we document in our newly released book The New Leviathan, these foundations have fallen under the sway of hard-left ideologues who have channeled the foundations’ tremendous resources to bankroll groups and individuals far outside the political mainstream, thereby shifting public policy on crucial issues dramatically to the left.

Kimberlin is a case in point….

-In a report from this Morning that covered a number of aspects of this saga, Stacy makes this observation about Neal Rauhauser:

This is an actual debate going on among those who have followed the Kimberlin story. There are some who think that Rauhauser is entirely cynical and that he keeps ginning up these crazy conspiracy theories in an effort to distract and confuse simpleminded people. There are others — and I am among them — who believe that Rauhauser is in the advanced stages of some degenerative neurological disorder and that his deranged rantings are symptomatic of his irreversible descent into paranoid psychosis.

Whether Neal Rauhauser is a scheming manipulator or the victim of a mental illness, however, there is no question that he is peddling falsehoods. One of the reasons I believe Rauhauser to be psychotic is because, if he were sane, he couldn’t possibly imagine that anyone would believe his lies.

Wednesday, the “Not Brett Kimberlin” site — after having declared itself Tuesday to be on “the high road” – unloaded a 3,700-word pile of nonsense that bore the distinctive hallmarks of Neal Rauhauser’s paranoiac fixations: Patterico, James O’Keefe and Andrew Breitbart all get name-checked, causing the sane and intelligent reader immediately to ask, “What does O’Keefe have do with this, except that Rauhauser is apparently obsessed with O’Keefe?”…

-Over at The Trenches, FoolishReporter makes the case that Neal Rauhauser is, indeed, mad.  A highlight:

The walls are closing in, Rauhauser. Can you feel it?

The reason why this post is focusing on Rauhauser’s mental health comes from a few entries in the online harasser’s now deleted WordPress blog and Tumblr. A curious mix of paranoia, reflection and asshattery, the man’s words reveal him for the kook he truly is, and perhaps reveal the cause, as well.

You see, at least according to Rauhauser, he has Lyme Disease, a painful affliction that’s caused by a tick bite. For most, the disease expresses itself in physical pain and other manifestations, but, for many, it also expresses itself in various forms of mental illness and decay.

I don’t know if the little worm is mad, but I think there is no doubt that he is mentally ill. 

You lock the door
And throw away the key
There’s someone in my head but it’s not me
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon

      I’m with Adobe on this one.

      “I don’t know about you all, but a lot of the time my head spins into dizziness just trying to understand exactly who the players are, what the Hell they’re talking about, and making the connections necessary to see the big picture.”

      I’ve written 4 posts on this subject that I’ve had to delete because I just can’t make this story into something simple. That might be because the story is too big, or just that the story is too big for me.
