Many people on the right suspect there’s a leftist political agenda behind the Climate Change movement. Those suspicions are best confirmed by simply paying attention to what’s being said at the protests and who’s saying it. As the Huffington Post reported:
Monday’s Flood Wall Street demonstration had a more frankly anti-capitalist message than the massive march that took over midtown Manhattan the day before. Many of those present were veterans of Occupy, including organizers like Lisa Fithian, dubbed “Professor Occupy” for her role in teaching tactics to that movement.
If you aren’t familiar with Fithian, she’s radical pagan anarchist anti-Israel lesbian union organizer that I’ve profiled extensively at Breitbart News. She’s a longtime fixture in the “Peace & Justice” movement, where she crossed paths with my friend Brandon Darby a number of times. We talk about Lisa in the film Occupy Unmasked, too.
The #FloodWallStreet rally was just another in the long line of radical ‘direct actions’ that Fithian and her comrades have been involved in. It’s the same anti-capitalist rhetoric repackaged in the hopes of drawing in new blood.
I’ve been a fan of Canadian power trio Rush for a long, long time but I hadn’t seen this video from 1975 of them playing Fly By Night until a couple of nights ago,
- Neil Peart not just wearing a cross, but the cross actually gets a bizarre sort of closeup…unless they were trying to show the awesome gold fringe detail
- Alex Lifeson looking like Peter Frampton in camp
- Geddy Lee before he’d ever discovered hair conditioner.
- A very early Neil drum kit with no high toms and three floor toms.
- A complete lack of focus on Geddy’s bass playing
- A very sad looking set that appears to have been a been from a high school production of Macbeth put painted black. Plus a banner. A forlorn banner.
- Neil doing a lot of Keith Moon stick moves plus twirls galore.
- I’m not even going to comment on Geddy’s shirt.
- A fisheye lens. Why not?
Conservative monthly The American Spectator has sold out on the one principle that every publisher must hold sacred: freedom of the press.
It’s confirmed. As part of a legal settlement, The American Spectator removed all references to leftist activist, serial litigator and convicted felon Brett Kimberlin.
The first hint of this was published by WJJ Hoge on September 10th, whose headline characterized Kimberlin’s Motion to Dismiss with Prejudice. Hoge, like me and about twenty other people and organizations-including Breitbart.com, Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin, Aaron Worthing, and more-have been sued by Brett Kimberlin in federal court.
Kimberlin’s claim is that we’re all part of a criminal conspiracy to defame him. He’s suing us using RICO statues that were developed to prosecute organized crime. It’s obviously absurd.
The American Spectator was one of the defendants, as well. No more. Now they’ve collapsed like a cheap card table after Michael Moore does a belly flop on it.
This is one of the most shameful chapters in the long history of the Brett Kimberlin Saga: a conservative publication caved to Brett Kimberlin’s demand to memory hole him.
Go see for yourself. Search for “Kimberlin” and you’ll get nothing. Not a single reference to his name.
The American Spectator granted Mr. Kimberlin his wish and removed every single mention of his. Articles like (ironically) this one
Want to read that article about the threat to Free Speech Rights?
You can’t. The American Spectator is denying your access.
Why aren’t you allowed to read this or anything else about Brett Kimberlin on the American Spectator site?
Of course, they don’t explain.
I’m not mad because I was a co-defendant in a lawsuit with The American Spectator. I don’t think their settlement impacts my case in any way.
I’m mad because removing completely accurate material about a valid story under the threat of a bogus lawsuit is wrong. There’s no larger game at play here. This wasn’t a tactical retreat.
The Spectator SETTLED with Brett Kimberlin.
Hang your head in shame, American Spectator. You deserve to be shunned.
But first, The American Spectator deserves a reminder of the First Amendment.
Here’s the contact form for The American Spectator.
Let them know if you approve of their decision to deny you access to previously published material about Brett Kimberlin.
The day after it was announced ISIS executed British Aid Worker David Haines, sprang into action and issued an Action Alert…to censor experts scheduled to talk about Islamic extremism to law enforcement in Arizona.
And they are trying to censor one of the stars of my documentary The Caliphate. (Click for more info and to donate to help get the film finished.)
Sure, the tweet gets cut off but you can see where it’s going,
CAIR want readers to Take Action! against anti-Muslim hate, urging them call and write to…well, to stop a couple of people from speaking. So, they want censorship, right?
So, who do they want censored? From CAIR’s release:
On September 19th, the MCAO is hosting a training presentation on “Islamic extremism” with known Islamophobes. John Guandolo and Clare Lopez - two headlining speakers at this training event – are known for their well-documented anti-Muslim hate rhetoric. Arizona Muslim community leaders, along with the ACLU, wrote to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery highlighting concerns over allowing hate speakers to train our law enforcement and prosecutors.
Known Islamophobe Clare Lopez!
Well, that’s interesting to me since known Islamophobe Clare Lopez is one of the people featured in my upcoming film The Caliphate! You can see Clare featured in this trailer for the film.
And here’s an extended clip of Clare that seems especially appropriate: Clare talking about how information about Islamic extremism was purged by the Obama administration. Watch it all, it’s chilling.

Former Iowa State Senator Ken Sorenson pled guilty of accepting bribes today in Federal Court…but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The New York Times reports:
Mr. Sorenson, 42, of Milo, Iowa, had been the state chairman for the presidential campaign of Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, but then switched his support to former Representative Ron Paul of Texas just days before the state’s caucus.
In a statement filed with his plea agreement, Mr. Sorensen admitted that he agreed to switch his allegiance in exchange for $73,000 in payments. The Justice Department did not name the campaigns involved in the scheme. He has not yet been sentenced.
But that’s all the only illegal shenanigans Sorenson was involved in.
He was also involved in the theft of a valuable mailing list, a theft that involved others who will be caught up in the aftermath of Sorenon turning state’s evidence with today’s plea deal.
Listen to this exclusively obtained audio of Sorenson discussing the mailing list theft.
