Breaking: Domestic Terrorist Kimberlin Has Conservative Blogger Arrested …Update: Aaron Worthing Released – Seeks Assistance

The World Is Upside-Down

Conservative blogger Aaron Walker was arrested today after the Maryland hearing on the Kimberlin case.

‘Speedway Bomber’: Criminal terrorist Brett Kimberlin was convicted in 1981

The Other McCain reported:

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.”

On Friday, conservatives had a blogburst in support of the victims of this evil man.

On Sunday Erick Erickson‘s home came under attack.

More… Via Anonymous – Aaron reportedly violated this peace order:

Update:  Judge Cornelius J. Vaughey retired in 2005, but is presiding over this case.  The Blaze reported that Judge Vaughey fills in when the court docket gets busy and is completely ignorant of the Internet.

Update: SooperMexican has the complete story from the courtroom this morning.  The judge appears to be completely ignorant of the internet.

Update:  Aaron Worthing just Tweeted this message asking for help…

I cant say more until I talk to my lawyer but… i do really need your help right now. And I appreciate your support.

A subsequent Tweet from Aaron Worthing says he’s free, but pleads for donations

    So, the judicial system is now on the side of the criminals.

    This is not a good development.

    So the guy who is harassing everyone gets the guy being harassed arrested? I’m sorry but having a serious WTF moment here. Lemme guess? This judge is a screaming far left moonbat liberal?

    So now the judges rule according to what the government wants, not what the actual laws are.

    And so everyone thought this career criminal would just roll over and go away?

  • FurryGuy

    For good or ill, arresting someone who disagrees with this administration is now legal precedent. No longer does there need to be even a figleaf of someone being a suspected terrorist to be snatched and incarcerated without trial.

    This is tyranny of the first water.

    No offense intended, Mr. Hoft, but that scan of the “peace order” really needs some brightness/contrast correction.

    This behavior by the Judiciary was the central issue of Newt Gingrich’s campaign. The judiciary is chock full of Leftist sympathizers and they are bent on making their own laws and being soft on perpetrators.

    I doubt Milquetoast Mittens will have the balls to go after the Judiciary so get used to criminals having their way,

    The US is in such a mess!

  • Redwine

    Remember the recent passage of the unconstitutional – and anti-constitutional – NDAA. We are witnessing the real beginning of the hard tyranny. This should become a major cause for all who cherish the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights now under severe attack.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    I’m no lawyer, but that petition looks like a big waste of time.

    Too bad the judge appears not to have had the same thoughts.

  • retire05

    The judge seems to have determined that Walker violated the restraining order by threatening Kimberlim’s personal safety. The large print in the first paragraph makes absolutely no sense since it is not clear what the judge is saying: ” COUNTLESS NUMBER OF BLOGS EITHER THREATENING DEATH.”

    I have read all the blogs concerning Kimberlin, and not ONE of them threatened him with “death.”
    And the judge seems to think that a blogger is responsible for what others might repond on that blog.

    Kimberlin is a known terrorist who caused the death of one man, and who received a judgement againt him for that man’s death, that Kimberlin refused to pay. The violence that the judge seems concerned about is all on Kimberlin’s side. Erick Erickson didn’t vacate his family from his home on a whim. Kimberlin has a history of violence.

    This should concern every conservative blogger in the U.S. When a convicted felon, who should still be sitting in a prison cell instead of paroled, can do this, no conservative voice is safe.

  • Buffalobob

    Just what is a peace order?

  • greenfairie

    They can’t keep this wicked man in jail but they’ll toss a blogger into the pokey for violating a specious order. It’s Kafka-esque.

  • This is serious. This is not rule of law, or using the truth when applying the law. We need to clean up the executives, legislatures and the courts everywhere around the country to firmly re-establish the rule of law.

  • What First Amendment?

  • rrpjr

    My God.

  • MN Jim

    According to a web search, Judge Cornelius J. Vaughey previously evicted a couple who complained about lack of building maintenance and sent a teen back to her parents after she turned them in for drug violations. He reportedly “retired” in 2005 and is elderly. I don’t know why he is back on the bench, but apparently has been a problem judge for years. Sounds like he is off his meds again.

  • Jack Deth

    A judge in Montgomery County, MD who’s not a bleeding heart, Moonbat liberal?

    Bleeding heart, Moonbat liberalism has ruled Montgomery County, MD for decades!

    Check the date and time of this supposed Final Peace Order (WTF?!!!).

    Judge in Kimberlin Hearing Woefully ignorant of Internet, Twitter

    From @OlympiaPress, who attended the Brett Kimberlin hearing [I added emphases]:

    This morning, I attended the hearing over a protective order sought by Brett Kimberlin against Aaron Walker in Rockville, MD. There were only a few people there.
    Walker, the defendant, if you will–and I apologize for getting any terminology wrong, I don’t have a lot of experience with peace orders, as my thorough pre-adoption criminal background check shows–had to represent himself. Kimberlin had an attorney present, who issued a few objections, nearly inaudible to me.
    The Judge, and I haven’t confirmed this, but I believe he was former Montgomery County Chief Justice James Vaughan–a guy who retired in ’04, and still takes the odd shift when stuff gets busy or there are vacations. In an earlier matter, Judge Vaughan mentioned he lived in the Caribbean, so pretty sure that’s the guy.

    It went bad for Walker pretty quickly. If you’ve followed the matter, and I know not a lot of people have, Walker, who is an attorney, acted in an advisory capacity for another blogger who had dealings with Kimberlin. Kimberlin later accused Walker of assault; those charges were null-processed; Walker wrote about things like you’ll read on Kimberlin’s wikipedia page, as well as his own dealings with Kimberlin.

    Judge Vaughan had read up on the matter, knew Kimberlin’s history of felony convictions, but clearly was technically ignorant of even basic facts about what Twitter is, in one instance point saying “He Googled you 500,000 times” through the Tubes or whatever. The Judge had identified himself, earlier, as being “of the Royal Typewriter Generation,” and at another point, when confronted with the voluminous material from both sides, asked “don’t people have jobs, who reads this stuff?”

    That said, Judge Vaughan did know a lot about the kind of respect a Judge is owed. He also, again, knew all about Kimberlin, saying “even a prostitute is entitled to protection.”

    And Walker pissed him off. So did Kimberlin, but Walker identified himself as a Yale-trained lawyer, albeit one who was representing himself. Kimberlin made any number of allegations–essentially, everything that was said about his side–issuing death threats, harming business interests, summoning SWAT teams to the home–was said by Kimberlin to have been done by Walker’s side.

  • Ed in NJ

    This is excellent news. Hopefully RSM will have to stay hidden like the pussy he is a little longer.

  • Tim O’Neill

    I understand Kimberlin’s favorite tactic is to publish personal data of anyone who challenges him or his causes. Therefore I humbly submit the case of Sauce for Goose vs Sauce for Gander to the court of opinion. There already are photos of Brett, more recent than his 1979 mugshot. Time to publish his workplace address, google photo of his home and photos of his associates. If the judge rules that’s illegal harassment a further case can be made against Kimberlin et al.

  • This is a First Amendment fight that we WILL win, in the end. Aaron Walker is in the process of setting up a legal defense fund. We need to fund it.

    And this poor excuse for a justice of the law needs to have his robe and gavel burned for gross misconduct and equally gross incompetence. His taking-into-custody of Aaron Walker is an egregious violation of the Fourth Amendment, and “Judge” Vaughan should spend jail time himself for it.

  • Redwine

    This attack on Walker and conservative bloggers is a tool of the regime to take down the First Amendment. The regime will go to any length to incriminate anyone who exposes the crimes and hypocrisy of the regime. BK is an attack dog of the regime. More attacks will probably follow. Reports of these attacks on innocent civilians who oppose the growing tyranny of the regime must go viral.

    I live in the People’s Republic of Maryland, and the liberals are so corrupt. They outnumber us two to one, so they don’t even hide their bias. I wasn’t surprised to learn that Kimberlin is getting money from Tides. He lives in Montgomery County which is close to Washington DC and gets all kinds of “funding” for “special” projects. I can smell the Soros/Obama stench from my house.

  • Ace

    Walker totally stepped into a set up. The warrant for his arrest was waiting for him provided the judge did not throw out the peace order. I’m going to donate to his cause, everyone should give what they can. He’s facing serious prison time because he doesn’t seem to understand who he’s dealing with. Maybe he does now.

    But it’s a good lesson to bloggers—
    Don’t physically interact with these people; and for crying out loud, don’t ever correspond with them!

  • Screw the donations – get the ACLJ on it or another conservative law group who works to help people like this.

    Redwine commented:

    I have posted an re-posted on this. Sen. Rand Paul appears to have started this, by failing to read the law.

    The NDAA 2012 as been misread by people who ought to know better.

    It is fundamental to US law that you have to read ALL the sections TOGETHER, and that a section outlining the background law and authorization, which is explicitly left unamended as to scope by subsequent legislation, DOES NOT CHANGE THE PRIOR LAW.



    I don’t care whether Rand Paul is a US Senator, or not. He made a mistake reading the legislation, possibly because he used an ignorant aide to do it for him, instead of checking up on what should have been in the index for his briefing materials.

    Judge Napolitano screwed up too, again by failing to read the legislation.

    Sen. Phil Graham is one of the authors, and he said this law does not apply to US citizens.

    I read the law. Phil Graham is right.
    Getting to a copy of the bill is complicated. You have to do a new search every time. However, the provisions I repeatedly find have been there since the first time I checked up on this question.

    Go here
    and enter the working title “national defense authorization act” for 2012

    and then scroll the list for HR 1540. make sure you select the latest version

    This site sucks because it does not provide anything like a permanent link, or a reliable permanent search.

    You are interested in Title X, subtitle D – Detainee Matters
    Section 1031 contains a recitation of the authority governing this subtitle. It is background, and is explicitly provides that this law DOES NOT CHANGE the prior law:

    “(d) Construction- Nothing in this section is intended to limit or expand the authority of the President or the scope of the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”


    “(e) Authorities- Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities, relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.”


    Section 1032(b) (1) specifically states that this subtitle does NOT apply to American citizens.

    “(b) Applicability to United States Citizens and Lawful Resident Aliens-

    “(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.”

    “(2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.”


    Legislation doesn’t get any clearer than that. Rand Paul, Judge Napolitano owe Sen. Phil Graham an apology for making a false accusation against him.

    As you can all see, this is in issue spread in the entire Nation by activist judges that care more about destroying the Constitution, than to make justice.
    If you want to make sure this stop, it’s imperative for conservatives to unite and vote and the remain states FOR NEWT, as he still in the ballot and provoke a brokered convention, remember the PRIMARIES is our battlefield, it’s where we vote for who we want, and if the CORRUPTION OF THE RNC intent to force us a liberal like Mitt, them we fight back, the BROKERED convention was created for the people to choose their candidate in the floor, not the RNC, CORRUPTION, MEDIA AND MILLIONS, but we the people.
    Inform everyone, Newt has been the ONLY one who has see this problem for what it’s and the dangers that the American people is dealing with in the future if this is allow in our court system, we must restore with the right leader and to do right, we must vote out everyone against this Nation, including both houses, the white houses and the RINOS running as republicans… STAND UP, OUR REPUBLIC NEED’S US, AND WE NEED HER!!!!

    could find: (don’t bother with the video, as it’s heavily edited for laughs)..

    December 12, 2011

    Still, as I explained yesterday, the bill no longer authorizes indefinite
    detention without trial of American citizens apprehended in the US, due
    to the compromise amendment adopted by the Senate. Nonetheless,
    proponents of indefinite detention of Americans say the legislation doesn’t
    need to explicitly grant that power because the president already has
    that authority (we’ll see what the Supreme Court says about that if and
    when the time comes). The bill still mandates indefinite detention of non-
    citizens under the same circumstances, a provision that pretty much
    every top national security official in the Obama administration—and
    as some former Bush officials as well—say will harm national security.
