Are political terrorist Brett Kimberlin and friends targeting upcoming blogger gathering?

National Bloggers Club president Ali Akbar is no stranger to Kimberlin’s cyberbullying tactics. Last year, Kimberlin supporters went after Akbar and his family. Now, Akbar is alleging that Neal Rauhauser, an associate of Kimberlin’s, and other Occupiers and cyberbullies are setting their sights on the upcoming Blog Bash:

My Blog Bash staff and I have been monitoring their online chatter for weeks now. They’ve harassed our sponsors, tried hacking into our personal Twitter and Facebook accounts, and now they’re trying to stop the National Bloggers Club from hosting our annual gathering of bloggers, Blog Bash.

According to Akbar, the venue hosting Blog Bash received a call recently from a man named “Neal”:

He called to gather information about Blog Bash, knowing that all of us will be in one room for the first time ever. He tried scaring them. This is harassment and nothing short of a threat.

Today, Akbar is taking to Twitter to spread the word about the potential threat:

And to make clear that he and his fellow bloggers will not be intimidated:

  • SantaClaus

    I have seen many mentions of “threats” but not one mention of what was actually threatened. Hmmmmm

    • wwbdinct

      Read the story again. He’s obviously not going to publically release what the exact nature of the threats were.

      • OsborneInk

        He’s obviously not going to release that info because it doesn’t back up his hyperbolic narrative.

        • ZEPHYR

          Speaking of hyperbolic narratives, how long are you going to carry on the faux concern that Neal Rauhauser is missing? The man had time to revive another Twitter account (@1000daysoframen) and call BlogBash this week. I think you can stop pretending now. You’re looking like a fool.

    • OsborneInk

      That’s because there were no “threats.” It’s all hokum.

      • Finrod Felagund

        Because a guy who spent 17 years in jail for murdering someone with a bomb could never be a threat again… (/sarcasm)

  • $23629333

    Everybody knows what should be done. But nobody wants to say so. So just do it.

    • OsborneInk

      You should be specific. Are you saying that someone should take direct action against someone?

      • $23629333

        Whenever someone replies to one of my comments, I click on the avatar to see what I’m dealing with. So, I click on yours and discover that you, Matt Osborne, of Osborne Ink, live “in a secure and undisclosed location,” in Alabama. Interesting. Why is it necessary for you to live in such a location; and – better yet – why is it necessary for you to advertise that fact? Are you as paranoid as “political terrorist Brett Kimberlin” and Soros sycophant David Brock?

        • Finrod Felagund

          He’s a liberal troll. They don’t attack their own.

        • AdoEdem

          I think he’s one of Kimberlin’s acolytes. The name looks familiar and I might have seen it when I took a (brief) gander at his propaganda site.

          If he is…well. That tells you everything you need to know: they’re nearly as psychotic as he is. Expecting them to be honest about their little cult is the same as expecting any brainwashed cult member to speak out against their cult leader.

      • ZEPHYR

        Yes, I think they have legal cause to take action and against you for your recent libelous articles. I will now be helping Patrick Read and the others who you helped maliciously attack, beginning with Twittergate, which you named in your smut pieces. You published lies and illegally defamed business people who have no association with your buddy, Neal Rauhauser. Your tweets from 2010 show your association with him. Google shows your association with the Southern Poverty Law Center that Neal Rauhauser continuously threatens every conservative he can find with.

        When true conservatives start realizing that this saga began in 2010 but not with Brett Kimberlin (it began with Neal Rauhauser), and stand together for truth, you may start winning elections again.

        If you all cannot see that the left is staging a false sense of unity with conservatives, you’re not paying attention. Either that or your personal egos come first. There are far too many who are not conservatives and sabotage social media for money.

        Interesting night. I heard quite an earful. Shortly after, I went on Twitter, spoke with @swiftread and who wedged herself into the conversation to interject more libel? @occupyrebellion – This person is not so anonymous anymore. If you’re interested in knowing who that crazy bat really is, note how she became irate and totally unglued at being called “Lane Lipton”.

        Next week will be extremely interesting.

  • OsborneInk

    Amazing. Ali Akbar hid his criminal record from his own side, got found out by the opposition, and then claimed martyrdom status after muckrakers divulged the fact he was running his fake charity empire out of his mommy’s house. Those bloggers were all denounced as Kimberlin Konspirators. In fact, anyone from left or right can become a part of this idiotic conspiracy theory just by asking Akbar a probing question.

    As far as the venue goes, I imagine they’ll get lots of calls and contacts over the next few days asking them why they’re hosting hate speech. There’s already a petition up at, so expect the grassroots opposition to Blog Bash from a spectrum of concerned citizens to grow.

    • Finrod Felagund

      Nice standing up for the First Amendment there. Been polishing your jackboots lately?

    • ZEPHYR

      Considering your old friend Neal Rauhauser is now in bed with Brooks Anthony Martin, known not-so-fondly on Twitter as @Brooksbayne, I would say you have no room to point fingers at people you think run fake 501(c)(3)’s.

      You, on the other hand, devote an entire website to spreading vicious libel about people you don’t know regarding facts you never checked. Your keyboard is not your free speech. You don’t have the freedom to lie in a cowardly attempt to destroy their livelihoods, which is exactly what you were trying to do.

      Happy March. The Ides didn’t work as expected.


    note 2 kimberlin minions, occupiers & other wannabe cowardly nitwits, look for ME at CPAC2013; I’ve got ur cure!!


    What is Twitchy so afraid of in the respect that it refuses to talk about where this problem started? Twitchy wasn’t even born at the time I am referencing. Do you not know? You have a former Breitbart Editor, Dana Loesch, who told this story from the beginning. It was called Twittergate – Democrats Hire Twitter Thug (Google it) and it was orchestrated by Neal Rauhauser way before he became involved with Brett Kimberlin. It was no hoax. It was documented fact.

    Many may not like the players involved, but on principle, they were in the right. They also knew where this upset was going. Set your egos aside. There cannot be any story to this saga by rejecting pieces because you don’t like Greg Howard.
