Blogger and Brett Kimberlin target Aaron Walker arrested in Maryland … This is absolutely outrageous. In a positively Kafka-esque turn of events, a Maryland judge has ordered that Walker be taken into police custody while serial harasser, terrorist, and killer Kimberlin remains free.

REPORT: Aaron Walker Arrested After Maryland Hearing on Kimberlin Case

Posted on | May 29, 2012 |

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION

Aaron Walker, whose complaint against convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin became a conservative cause célèbre this past week, was reportedly taken into custody today after a court hearing in Rockville, Maryland.

One person who attended the hearing in Montgomery County District Court said that Kimberlin asserted that Walker’s continued blogging represented a violation of a “peace order” Kimberlin had obtained against the Virginia attorney, who says Kimberlin tried to “frame” him for assault earlier this year.

During the course of the hearing — which reportedly lasted about an hour — Judge C.J. Vaughey appeared to become increasingly hostile toward Walker, who was taken into custody when the hearing concluded.

On Thursday, May 17, Walker published a 28,000-word account of his experience being targeted by Kimberlin, which soon caught the attention of leading figures in online New Media, including University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds, who writes the popular Instapundit blog, and bestselling author Michelle Malkin, who warned her readers, “Please remember: Kimberlin is a radical, violent, lying, dangerous felon.”

UPDATE: According to a source, Kimberlin claimed during the hearing that he has received death threats as a result of Walker’s violation of the peace order. In 1981, Kimberlin was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for his crimes, including the 1978 terrorist bombing that brutally maimed Vietnam veteran Carl DeLong.

UPDATE II: A copy of the “final peace order” (time-stamped 10:52 a.m.) states that Kimberlin is “in fear of imminent serious bodily harm” as a result of a “countless number” of death threats, and that “there is clear and convincing evidence that [Walker] is likely to commit a prohibited act in the future against [Kimberlin].”

UPDATE III: To understand what is going on here, please see my column today at The American Spectator:

During his time in federal prison, [Kimberlin] became a prodigious jailhouse lawyer, filing more than 100 actions on his own behalf, and his litigious habits have continued until this day. When Patrick Frey, the blogger known as Patterico, wrote about Kimberlin’s criminal past in 2010, he was immediately threatened with a libel suit. By then, Kimberlin had already sued Seth Allen, who eventually got legal assistance from Aaron Walker, a Virginia attorney who had blogged under the pseudonym “Aaron Worthing.” This evidently made Walker a target of Kimberlin’s harassment tactics, with the result that Walker says both he and his wife lost their jobs….

Kimberlin’s critics say his litigation against Allen and Walker, and threats of action against others, are a type of “lawfare,” which is defined as “the illegitimate use of domestic or international law with the intention of damaging an opponent, winning a public relations victory, financially crippling an opponent, or tying up the opponent’s time so that they cannot pursue other ventures such as running for public office.” And this is part of what many see as a wide-ranging strategy of intimidation waged against conservatives …

Read the whole thing. I’m still trying to confirm facts about Walker’s hearing and reported arrest.

UPDATE IV: Just spoke to a source who confirms that witnesses saw Walker led out of the courtroom in handcuffs. Ali Akbar, president of the National Bloggers Club, Tweets:

Will know more on Aaron’s situation at 3:30/4:30pm.

The National Bloggers Club has created KimberlinFiles.org to help call attention to the case and to enable “supporters to make financial donations to a relief fund as a show of support.”

This Week’s Watcher’s Forum Question: Prediction – What Will Happen In The Trayvon Martin Case?

The Watcher’s Council

This week’s Watcher’s Forum question concerns the Trayvon Martin case, which involves neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman and one Trayvon Martin, who Zimmerman saw inside his gated community and who apparently ended up shot and killed after an altercation between the two.

Zimmerman was originally not charged by the police, but was brought to trial and charged with murder two after the case attracted national attention and resulted in outrage, threats of violence and racial animosity sparked by people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and even comments by President Obama. Oh, and a nifty new line of racist tee shirts and assorted gear.

Zimmerman is claiming self defense.

As the evidence becomes released publicly, here’s how some of the Watcher’s Council members see things ending up:

The Noisy Room: I believe that Zimmerman will be found not-guilty and the state will wind up paying his costs for litigation. In my opinion, Zimmerman will eventually sue the FL State Prosecutor, Angela Corey, for gross malfeasance and subornation of perjury. I also believe Zimmerman has standing to sue NBC for slander for falsely impugning him to millions of people. Since the DOJ is actively involved in this, it could go all the way to the Supremes.

Bookworm Room: What she said.

Simply Jews: What Bookworm says.

The Independent Sentinel: I agree with Bookworm.

A lawsuit against the New Black Panthers Is another possibility.

I believe the DOJ will come up with a “hate crime” charge though it appears to be unjustified because that is the world we currently live in.

The charge of second degree murder is as legitimate as the Duke Lacrosse case, which was another example of media malfeasance.

The Colossus of Rhodey: Zimmerman will be convicted on a lesser charge but will serve no jail time. The feds will not pursue any civil rights charges because they’re tired of getting laughed out of court. This will lead to some protests and rioting by the Farrakhanesque-led loons, but nothing on the scale of the LA riots post-Rodney King. There’s a high likelihood Martin’s parents will seek civil damages (akin to what OJ Simpson faced), but Zimmerman may do same, especially against the media.

Joshuapundit: Key witnesses appear to have changed their stories back and forth since they were initially interviewed by the police when the original incident happened. This is probably the result of the fear of violence at the hands of Trayvon Martin’s backers, with the result that the witnesses are now mostly saying they’re not sure what they saw or heard.

Since the jury is going to have to convict based on the premise of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, I don’t see how the prosecution makes a murder two rap stick unless they manage to seat a predominantly black jury and are successful in pitching ‘jury nullification’ the way the OJ Simpson defense team did in his criminal trial.

I would not rule out in the least a hate crime or civil rights charge against George Zimmerman from Obama’s Department of Justice. Not only is it going to be easier than murder two, but the DOJ has nothing to lose except taxpayer money and even if they’re unsuccessful, they’ll be able to punish Zimmerman by bankrupting him.

The Razor: While in general agreement with Hube and Terresa, I’m viewing this case as a Reverse OJ where, like the Juice, Zimmerman will walk and the response will be along racial lines. Blacks will be shocked, whites will agree with the verdict, and riots will break out. Not that it takes much to start a riot these days; in fact I expect riots whether or not Zimmerman is convicted.

This case was painted in black in white from the very beginning. I remember no less than Shepherd Smith on the liberal-despised Fox News practically busting out in tears over Martin’s errand for skittles. It was only weeks later that it came out that Zimmerman is much more Black than Elizabeth Warren is Cherokee (1/4-1/8 depending on source vs 1/32.) Racial fractions. It’s like a complete return to the 1850’s but I digress. Then his wounds, and Martin’s less than stellar character eventually leaked.

I still believe that the situation Zimmerman and Martin found themselves in was complex and that the Truth has yet to come out. But given the hysteria of the event, I doubt it can, and even if it did, wouldn’t matter. People have made up their minds, and nothing will change them.

The Right Planet: When it comes to court cases anymore, I can’t predict anything with accuracy. See, back when O.J. was accused of butchering Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman, I thought that the blood in the Bronco–the car chase, the blood on the door of O.J.’s house; the bloody glove with everybody’s blood on it (e.g. O.J.’s, Nicole’s, Ron’s)–laying by his houseboy’s window would be enough to convict “The Juice” hands-down. But we now know different. It was “social justice.” I will predict the same result in the Trayvon Martin case–a crazy white “Hispanic” brutally and mercilessly murdered a perfectly innocent, angelic black person and should burn in hell for eternity. This will serve the Frankfurt School-inspired narrative for “social justice” famously, i.e Obama et ilk, and the state-run press to a tee. Back out quiet … tell me if I’m wrong.

Obama Exposes Seal Team 6 for Movie: Impeachment Worthy Documentation

We present this nauseating drama in three acts, going backward in time, Dramamine not provided. Whether or not that really was Bin Laden that was killed and his body whisked stealthily away, wrapped up like a fish, and dumped in the ocean in purported Muslim (not-Muslim) fashion, it is Seal Team 6 that gets played.

Scooter Obama Outs Navy SEAL Team 6 Leader For Movie

Posted 05/24/2012 06:56 PM ET

National Security: New documents obtained by a watchdog group show our commander in chief gave the name of a Navy Seal Team 6 commander to the makers of a movie about Osama bin Laden. Valerie Plame, call your office.

Those documents, recently obtained by Judicial Watch, reveal that the Obama administration not only spiked the football and did an end-zone dance after the Navy SEALs dispatched bin Laden from his Club Pakistan abode, but was also willing to expose to the other side our playbook and the name of a SEAL commander.

“These documents, which took nine months and a federal lawsuit to disgorge from the Obama administration, show that politically connected filmmakers were given extraordinary and secret access to bin Laden raid information, including the identity of a SEAL Team 6 leader,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Judicial Watch Obtains DOD and CIA Records Detailing Meetings with bin Laden Raid Filmmakers

May 22, 2012

DOD Officials Disclosed to Filmmakers Identity of SEAL Team Six Operator and Commander; Ask Film Director to Withhold Operator’s Name, ‘because he shouldn’t be talking out of school.’

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, the organization that investigates and fights government corruption, announced today that it has obtained records from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) regarding meetings and communications between government agencies and Kathryn Bigelow, Academy Award-winning director of The Hurt Locker, and screenwriter Mark Boal. According to the records, the Obama Defense Department granted Bigelow and Boal access to a “planner, Operator and Commander of SEAL Team Six,” which was responsible for the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden, to assist Bigelow prepare her upcoming feature film.

The records, obtained pursuant to court order in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed on January 21, 2012, include 153 pages of records from the DOD and 113 pages of records from the CIA (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Defense (No. 1:12-cv-00049)). The documents were delivered to Judicial Watch late last Friday (May 18). The following are the highlights from the records, which include internal Defense Department email correspondence as well as a transcript from a key July 14, 2011, meeting between DOD officials, Bigelow and Boal:

And from Noisy Room and Gulag Bound, grave concerns that Muslim Brotherhood, NAZI trained, very potentially, CIA-coddled, and embedded deeply in the White House, may have set up the retaliation attack on the otherwise bizarrely arranged helicopter transportation of Navy Seals, August 6 (what date again? August 6) 2011, shortly after their successful raid.
