National Bloggers Club Unmasked

35

 

A number of right wing bloggers who claim they are the National Bloggers Club have recently been attacking Brett Kimberlin in mass accusing him of every dirty deed in the book. So, because of that, we here at BU decided to check into this National Bloggers Club to see who was behind it, and what their mission is, and also who funded who, or where the money came from to run this loose knit operation of right wing bloggers who use the internet to raise money for causes they create, and or basically wreck havoc with anyone considered an enemy of their little group.

 

First up is Ali A. Akbar.

Ali and his childhood friends are directors of the National Bloggers Club. However they don’t all live at this address above. I find it strange they all do not live or even work at this address, yet file corporate forms with the State and IRS that claim that they all live or reside or work at this address. The issue here is that most of these people running this company are just young kids in their early 20’s who have scant to zero business experience and seem to not know the landscape of the business world or how to operate in it. But that is just my opinion.

Then there is the affable John Dennis Pedrie as one of the Directors of The National Bloggers Club. His claim to fame was that he worked until 2010 at the Onyx Ice Arena as an Ice Rink Maintenance Man. So he went from Ice Maintenance worker to Vice President of Technology and Development at Vice & Victory, which is another Ali Akbar creation, to one of the Directors of The National Bloggers Club. Wow, sounds like he has some real corporate experience behind him.

 

Then we go to Devon Wills, who’s claim to fame was that he was a personal shopper at J Crew before he became the CEO at Wills Group LLC, and then later a Director of The National Bloggers Club.

Right now he is going to the all christian stud Liberty University which was founded by the Reverend Jerry Falwell, and which claims in its mission statement that it trains Champions for Christ.

There are a number of others who are in the process of signing up for a National Bloggers Club board seat; such as Michele Malkin who has also been a front runner in leading the charge against Brett Kimberlin in the media. Of course we will post more data on this organization as the crow flies here at BU. The one interesting connection was who was the money man that seeded the National Bloggers Club? Well, that just so happens to be Foster Friess. Foster is another right wing corporate billionaire who has given money to the Koch Brothers, and also claims he also helps out American Crossroads which is run by Karl Rove.

 

Friess has been an active patron of religious and conservative causes. He has been instrumental in keeping the political campaign of the 2012 presidential hopeful Rick Santorum alive by financing a super PAC, the Red, White and Blue Fund, which runs television advertisements on behalf of Santorum, who was unable to run a television campaign with his own funds. According to campaign filings with the Federal Election Commission, Friess’s contributions to the Red, White and Blue Fund amount to more than 40% of its total assets – or, $331,000 as of 31 December 2011.[5][6]He had donated $250,000 to Santorum’s re-election campaign in 2006, and at least that amount to the Republican Governors’ Association.[7] In the wake of the New Hampshire Republican primary, 2012, and before the South Carolina primary, Friess told Politico that he was “putting together a challenge grant to encourage other wealthy donors to give to the Red, White and Blue Fund, … he said [the fund]received a $1 million check” the day after the New Hampshire vote.[8] The Million-dollar donation was conveyed in four checks between November, 2011 and January, 2012.[6]

In addition to Santorum’s faith, pro-life stance, and hawkish foreign policy leanings, the possibility of defeating incumbent President Barack Obama was a major component of Friess’s decision to back Santorum’s campaign.[9] Friess is reportedly considering major contributions to American Crossroads in hopes to influence key 2012 senate races.[10]

Friess has also donated $100,000 to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to help defeat the Democrats’ recall effort in 2011. In addition, he has reportedly donated more than $3 million to the conservative commentator Tucker Carlson‘s The Daily Caller website.[7] At one of the semi-annual, private seminars held by the Koch brothers in June 2011, Friess was recognized for his donation exceeding $1 million to the Kochs’ political activities.[11]

The other interesting connection was this Yahoo News article on the private invite only meeting that started the National Bloggers Club.

James O’Keefe attending the opening bash of the National Bloggers Club and claiming Fuck the media? Well James I think you have that wrong, it’s not fuck the media, it’s the media fucks you. But that is just how I look at it.

So what do we have here? We have Foster Friess starting the National Bloggers Club with James O’Keefe attending, with connections to the Koch Brothers and Karl Rove. We also have media personalities such as Michele Malkin who is also connected to Robert Stacy McCain. We also have Ali Akbar who is connected to the rest of the right wing bloggers, and who have all been attacking in mass one guy by the name of Brett Kimberlin, who I might add has been on a many years long crusade to expose the corruption behind Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers and James O’Keefe. I would call these connections very interesting indeed. What I also find even more interesting is that they have recently been raising money for a few bloggers who they claim are under the threat of some future lawsuit, yet, they have a billionaire funding them. So my question is why do they need to raise funds for some future legal challenges when they have such heavy guns seeding them with huge resources of money? Why not just call up Foster Friess and ask him for the money to support Robert Stacy McCain and Mandy Nagy and the millionaire John Patrick Frey? Those are very interesting questions which we will probe into in the days ahead.

Stay Tuned..

    Well, there is even more to this story than you have reported on which I will be laying out the the FBI. But you are right, why in the heck are these guys even asking for money when they have the backing of Foster et al. Well, it’s because they are scammers. They have a defense fund begging pennies from retired folks on pensions and let me tell you, they will not be spending that money on lawyers. It will go into their pockets. Conservatives, you need to demand total transparency re that defense fund — how much money came in and where it was spent. If one penny goes to anything other than lawyers, they are guilty of fraud. There are so many questionable activities going on with NBClub that even the feds are going to have a hard time following all the corruption — but I am going to help walk them through it.

    Before giving money, everyone would be well advised to check the 501(c)(3) status of the organization. As I have proved on my blog, this National Bloggers Club, Inc., is not a 501(c)(3) like they claim on http://rememberbreitbart.com — a fact I will discuss with the IRS tomorrow.

    • http://twitter.com/ali Nerble Flirtz, Esq

      So this is just like O’Keefe Project Veritas – claims 501c3 status, but either isn’t yet, or will never be approved. As I recall this IRS fraud angle is part of the reason James O’Keefe is having so much trouble.

      The sense of entitlement is just eye watering. They manage to avoid the direct appearance of a handout, but by gaming the non-profit tax code for things that clearly don’t fit they are playing with fire. Who pays the taxes when they get caught? Is it the board of the organization? The staff? Or does it come back and hit the donors?

      I have been digging deep into BU, and have traced him and his site to Iceland. I have concluded that BU is actually a foreign intelligence operation whose sole purpose is to destroy and expose the American right, probably with the nod of the US Government. This guy (actually a group of intelligence operatives) is able to do what he does because he does not live in the USA yet has access to classified data. He has so much data on everyone that he can lay siege to anyone at any time. He has shown that he can out anyone, that he has dossiers on everyone, and that he waits to make his expose’s at the time of his own choosing. This man is terrifying. He owns all of us. We are like flies waiting to be eaten by him. Watch, he will take another one out be week’s end, and it will be brutal. His weapon is information — but he uses it differently than Anonymous or Assange. Instead, he is more, a massive predator drone watching, waiting, and targeting us. We are getting picked off, weakened, and distracted. We are all flailing about thinking that we have a chance when we are like Saddam’s army getting sucked into the desert of no return. This past week when we all should have been involved in the Walker recall, we have been bogged down talking about a guy’s decade’s old felony record. This is exactly where BU wanted us. He has analyzed every blog, tweet, comment and email we have sent the past month. It is now in his giant database. We walked into a trap that he set and there is no way out. We think we can call for help from Senators or Congress, when this guy can wipe his ass with any candidate of ours. If a Congressman gets involved, we are condemning him to the dustbin of history. I dread to think what he has on Romney. We are supposed to be the first line of defense, but he has us all terrified because we all know that he can do anything he wants with his information. God help us.

  • Truth About Breitbart

    I am happy and relieved that you have done this research. I understand that there is an infowar that has been calculatedly launched by Breitbart’s Army, as they call themselves. They’re also backed by people who claim themselves as “top conservatives on twitter”. That’s bullsh-t. Nobody named them head of anything, and they literally harass and stalk people who, in a real war, would be considered civilians. It’s sickening how self-important they are. Their ties to extremist organizations such as the Army of God and other white, Christian hate groups are very real if you dig deep. I’ve seen profiles with “palefaced” Obama, Jim Crow Party icons, and some really sickening BS>

    I was a civilian caught in the crossfire. I WAS a victim but I have taken up virtual arms, so to speak. I don’t break the laws and I have some rules of engagement that I presonally follow, and I don’t aim at civilians. But I, too, am fighting to expose Breitbart, stop the ILLEGAL funding of their group, and see them prosecuted every SINGLE TIME they try to stop and AIM for somebody.

    They only target people they think they can BREAK (for example, the guy who worked on the Kony 2012 who had a nervous breakdown and ended up naked in California) or SILENCE COMPLETELY (which has happened to several of my twitter followers)

    This website does LESS than the Breitbart crew in terms of intimidation. I don’t see any hacked emails, nothing like that. Yet it scares them to death. Good.

    The Breitbart crew are a classic bunch of criminals with narcisstic personality disorders. Because of this, anyone who outsmarts them is either a terrible criminal, a real, CIA-level spy, an international spy or double-agent, an FBI member, or a superhacker from Anonymous.

    Because they’re so darn important. (AND THEY STILL CAN”T FREAKING USE GOOGLE)

    Lulz. Thanks for the info, hope you stick around :) and shed more light. I am looking forward to the media picking this one up.

    Breitbart.com is ruthless, unethical, and completely lost without their sociopathic leader. He’s gone and left the web with a website & twitter community full of extreme narcissists.

    • http://twitter.com/ali Nerble Flirtz, Esq

      Your brush is too broad. As a group they ARE narcissistic, but individually you see various problems. That Darby fellow is clearly a sociopath, and Stranahan might be, too. Many of their supporters are on disability and the most vocal are the ones with psychiatric problems. Bipolar is in evidence in some, who are literally seen being combative on Twitter for twenty four hours at a stretch. A bunch of them are delusional – either delusions of persecution, or delusions of reference aka being the center of the universe.

      The rotten center of this is John Patrick Frey, who lends credibility to the their wingnut citizen’s grand jury with his taxpayer funded job. Have you ever heard him introduced as anything other than “Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney”? No, you have not – he abuses his position for political purposes and it’s long since passed the time when Steve Cooley or Kamala Harris should have stepped in and ended this behavior.

    I have added another post to my blog. IRS Regulations say you LOSE your 501(c)(3) status if you engage in partisan politics.

    Ali running something out of his house reminds me of Convicted Felon, Brett Kimberlin, “directing” the Justice Through Music project out of his mother’s house in Bethasda, Maryland. (or so I have heard)

    • admin

      Well, it reminds me of CorbinDallas1138 who chokes the monkey daily because he can’t get any, so he hangs out on perverted sex sites trying to get other monkey chokers to pony up their backsides so he can get a peek and get some jollies.. Just sayin…

      Hey spammers, you might want to check your facts. That picture is publicly avail on the Internet and Ali used his mother’s address in his public filings for the Natl Bloggers’ Club. All BU did was compile it into an easily readable format. You can spin this but the fact is that Ali is responsible for putting this info in the public domain. Hey BU, these dumbasses seem to need links to everything so maybe you could shut them up by linking to Whois, and Google Pics and other things. Hypocrites they are, not wanting anything written about them, but wanting to ruin other people’s lives with lies.

    Just askin’

    I now have all of the personal information of Roger Alan Shuler, aka “legalschnauzer,” who provides venom to this hate site.

    He lives in Birmingham, Alabama with his wife Carol on Logan Drive.

    Remove the Akbar personal information from this site at once. Fair warning has been given.

    • Metadata

      There is no personal data on this site — rather public information. Ali put his info on the Internet, and lied about his criminal record. And really, even conservatives are turing on Ali for misleading people. http://anexconsview.wordpress.com/2012/06/09/withdrawing-support-for-national-bloggers-club/ By week’s end, there will be a torrent because people like Ali who lie always have even more they are hiding. So I am just waiting for the next shoe to drop.
