In 2010, a obscure young lawyer serving as a compliance attorney at a Virginia home health care agency decided to burn down the world. As is true with many aspects of his life, he failed.
Not for lack of trying.
Look at that last paragraph. He invites the people he intends to offend to come and kill him. He vows to insult the Islamic prophet on a regular basis until it stops getting a violent response. In a bold proclamation, he bravely states, “So if you feel like beheading someone, I’m right here. Aaron Worthing of Manassas, Virginia, b*itches.”
Such valor. Risking his own neck to stand for the American Right to Insult Non-Christians.
Except it wasn’t his own neck. There is nobody named Aaron Worthing living in Manassas, Virginia.
Aaron Worthing, super free speech patriot, turned out to be a penny-ante lawyer without a shingle. Aaron J. Walker.
His hatred for the Islamic religion seems to know no bounds. It cost him his livelihood. He was fired when his identity was revealed and his cover was blown, causing his co-workers to fear being collateral damage should the terrorists Walker sought to enrage act on their outrage.
The attorney hired to relieve Walker of his duties discovered that Walker had largely neglected his duties at the home health care firm in order to work on his “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” blog and to offer legal assistance to a disturbed nobody of a blogger involved in a case north of the Potomac… where Walker was not licensed to practice.
Walker became a celebrity in the Alt Right blogosphere. Other than pickup work he does on a pro bono basis for his chums, he remains unemployed. According to a story published by a fellow conservative blogger, Walker admitted that his wife checks his car for bombs every day.
What happened to take a doughy, learning-disabled attorney of no renown from obscurity to hero status among America’s right wing Islamophobes?
Could his otherwise inexplicable hatred for Muslims be related to his marriage to a refugee from the Philippines?
Meet Mary Catherine Du Bravo, or Mary Bravo, or Karen Walker. We’re not sure.
The records show Aaron and his bride were joined in matrimony in 2004. Walker is very sensitive about his wife, understandably so. Any concerned husband would be worried about his wife’s well-being.
Intelligence Agencies in the Republic of the Philippines were concerned as well.
This document purports to be a briefing memo from the Natural Bureau of Investigation and the Armed Forces of the Philippines. Aaron Walker is reportedly aware of and possesses a copy of this briefing. To our knowledge he has never disavowed its authenticity. The events outlined in this briefing have contemporary news stories in the Philippine press lending credibility to its authenticity.
THE MAY 2001 KIDNAPPING IN PALAWAN
TWENTY people, including three Americans, were kidnapped by armed gunmen during a dawn raid at a holiday resort in the Philippines yesterday.
About 20 bandits wearing ski masks stormed the secluded Dos Palmas Island Resort at Honda Bay in Palawan province, about 375 miles south-west of Manila, rounding up 16 guests and four staff as they ate breakfast at their thatched huts overlooking the sea. It is the second raid on a holiday resort in a week.
Police said doors had been forced open and rooms were in disarray, clothes were strewn around and fridges were emptied. The gang is believed to have fled in a speedboat. Two of the Americans, Martin and Gracia Burnham, are missionaries based in Manila. The other, Guillermo Sobero, arrived in the country three days ago.
Mr. Sobrero was engaged to one of the employees at the Dos Palmas resort, also a kidnap victim.
Virginia Rosadeno had hoped that the President would help secure the release of her daughter, Marife, one of the 20 hostages seized by Abu Sayyaf bandits at the Dos Palmas resort in Arrecife Island, some 45 minutes away from Puerto Princesa, May 27.
Marife is the girlfriend of American hostage Guillermo Sobero. She was with him when the Abu Sayyaf bandits broke into their cottages, one of several picturesquely jutting out in the sea, at dawn.
A shell-shocked Filipina hostage was freed from nearly six months captivity Thursday, having been forced to convert to the religion of her Muslim Abu Sayyaf kidnappers who murdered her American boyfriend.
Maria Fe Rosadeno looked emaciated and forlorn as she and another freed captive faced the press at a military camp in this southern city. The 21-year-old’s face was covered with rashes and her hair concealed under a traditional Muslim veil.
She was vacationing with her Californian boyfriend Guillermo Sobero at the Dos Palmas resort in the western Philippines when they were seized along with 18 others by Abu Sayyaf gunmen on May 27.
Sobero was beheaded shortly after the night of June 11, other freed hostages have said.
Maria Fe Rosadeno huddled with the other hostages in a small hut, as their Muslim extremist guards led her American fiance away into the jungle, his hands bound behind his back.
It was the last time they saw him. Guillermo Sobero was beheaded in 2001 by the al-Qaida-linked Abu Sayyaf group.
The details of his death are just now becoming known as witnesses emerge _ some from government protection programs _ to identify their captors.
Rosadeno recalls hearing his voice ringing out in the night as he exclaimed, “Jesus!” Fellow captives tried to reassure Rosadeno that her fiance probably had just stumbled and would be back soon.
Four months later, still being dragged around Basilan island’s rugged terrain by Abu Sayyaf, the hostages heard on the radio that Sobero’s remains had been found.
None of the published reports says anything about the hostage self-aborting a pregnancy resulting from being raped in captivity,
- Your wife became a public figure when you introduced her affidavit in your case against the Kimberlins. What is her actual name? Mary Catherine Du Bravo? Mary Bravo? Karen Walker?
- The purported Philippine Intel report matches events of the timeline in contemporary news reports in the PI press. I have never read that you have denied anything in that report. To the best of your knowledge, is this an authentic intelligence report? How did you and Kimberlin come into possession thereof?
- Was your wife one of the native Filipinos kidnapped by Abu Sayyaf forces in May 2001?
- Was she an employee of the Dos Palma resort in Palawan?
- Is her actual name Maria Fe Rosadeno?
- There are contemporary news reports of several Abu Sayyaf hostages escaping in Oct. 2001. Was she one of them?
- The intelligence report says she was pregnant as a result of being raped while in captivity. Was the reported self-administered abortion the cause of her subsequent infertility?
- The intelligence report indicates she gave information to authorities and was resettled with a new name. Were you involved with her by then, or did you meet her after she came to America?
- Are the horrible things that apparently happened to her the motivating factor behind your seemingly irrational hatred of Muslims?
- The reports say she was engaged to Guillermo Sobrero of Corona, CA, who was beheaded after being kidnapped. Is he one of the “relatives” mentioned in the Intel report? Who were the other murdered relatives?
- How did the two of you meet? Was her marriage to you part of an agreement between the PI and USA to get her “set up domestically” in America?
Walker has not responded to our e-mailed questions. We will update this story should he respond at some later time.
Why This Is Pertinent
Mrs. Walker went from protected family member to participant when she offered an affidavit to support her husband in his lawsuit against Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin. As we’ve reported earlier, Walker and his self-described “paralegal” WJJ Hoge III of Westminster, MD, have tried to hide her behind redactions in documents they’ve published on Scribd.com. But it doesn’t work that way. When you agree to be a combatant, you can’t cry foul when you receive return fire.
Kimberlin states in his opposition to Walker’s effort to keep his wife from being deposed:
It is well known that Plaintiff Walker’s wife has a disturbing and tragic history, and that this has resulted in widespread discussion on the Internet. In the United States, she has used multiple names, including Mary du Bravo, Mary Bravo, Karen Walker, Mary Catherine du Bravo and others in order to protect her from possible retribution. According to a document from a Philippine intelligence operative, she changed her name after she was kidnapped in the Philippines, identified some of her captors, and fled to the United States.
This is information that Defendants have known about for years but never discussed publicly out of respect for what she went through. However, when she submitted an affidavit in this case making false allegations against Defendant Brett Kimberlin, he had a right to show the Court and question her about her biases, her paranoia, and her emotional instability. It was Plaintiff who opened the door to this line of inquiry when he submitted her affidavit. There is nothing scandalous or impertinent about this information and in fact Defendants have not included even more details about her history that is publicly available on the Internet.
One is tempted to ask why, if he is so protective of his wife, Aaron Walker allows his wife to check his car for bombs.
One can also wonder who Walker was “protecting” when he attempted to set the world ablaze by inflaming Islamic passions under a pseudonym with his “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” blog.
If Mrs. Walker is the unfortunate Maria Fe Rosadeno, Aaron’s hatred for Muslim extremism is understandable.
His actions in service of that hatred, however, remain at the very least, questionable.
