Damascene Götterdämmerung (UPDATE: Defeat Doctrine)

This Voice Of America article offers divergent points of view on the question of Syria’s chemical weapons. Given their history as deterrent to Israel’s unacknowledged nuclear force, Syrian stockpiles were never designed for use against Syrian cities. But the chances of that happening go up with each day that Assad’s position deteriorates. We simply don’t […]

The Voice of Seth Allen on the Liberal Grouch Podcast

liberalgrouch1

I have no idea how this will turn out. Apparently, someone has misinformed Bill Schmalfeldt that I am a “liberal blogging icon,” so he has invited me onto his half-hour podcast at 12 noon EST/11 AM CST today to talk about yesterday’s post on Seth Allen and LA Deputy District Attorney John Patrick Frey. Tune […]

Patterico’s Nuts

sethallen

Aaron Walker is a very bad lawyer, but he is also the blogging buddy of LA Deputy District Attorney John Patrick Frey. Walker inserted himself into a lawsuit that was none of his business and became East Blogistan’s chief martyr in its phony war against Brett Kimberlin. At the time, Kimberlin was suing a psychologically […]

Liberal Grouch Reads Patterico-Barrett Brown Chat Logs

liberalgrouch

When I wrote about Nadia Naffe’s lawsuit against Los Angeles Deputy DA John Patrick Frey @Patterico the other day, I mentioned Frey’s bizarre attempt to discredit Naffe’s attorney, Jay Liederman, through Barrett Brown, and I linked to a .PDF of the logs Brown kept of that conversation with Frey. Assuming it meets the criteria set […]

Patterico’s Friend Aaron Walker Is Not A Very Good Lawyer

worthingdamagep1

Los Angeles Deputy DA John Patrick Frey @Patterico is a good friend of Aaron Walker, the primary right-wing blog martyr in the Brett Kimberlin narrative. Basically, Walker tried to insert himself into a civil case that was none of his business: Kimberlin was trying to win protection from Seth Allen, a mentally-ill conspiracy theorist and […]

Watching Breitbart’s Throne

breitbartdeathmeme

This morning, when I posted on Nadia Naffe’s lawsuit against Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney John Patrick Frey @Patterico, I used the words “Breitbart empire.” Naffe’s suit was in fact one subject of many among the last emails Andrew Breitbart exchanged before he died (.PDF). Breitbart was communicating with the Anon and Twitter troll known as @ZAPEM, […]

The James O’Keefe Protection Racket

okeefearrested

Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney John Patrick Frey, aka @Patterico, is being sued by Nadia Naffe, former confidante of James O’Keefe. Ken White, the blogging lawyer at Popehat, is a proud member of Frey’s pro bono defense team: Today I write to offer pleadings for anyone interested in the case, and a pleasing update regarding its […]

Former Rush Limbaugh Producer Also Tried To Win Time With Sandra Fluke

rusty_humphries

Last week, I reported that former James O’Keefe associate Kenneth C. Larrey had tried winning a charity auction for a strategy session with Sandra Fluke. A second “hostile bidder” has now been identified: The winning bidder was apparently RosieR, who bid $400. RosieR had been in something of a bidding war with two other bidders, SimonTemplar […]

Former Associate of James O’Keefe Tried To Win Time With Sandra Fluke

simontemplarpv-ken-larrey

Rush Limbaugh spent three days smearing Sandra Fluke for the crime of telling Congress about her perspective on birth control access in health care plans; that hatchet-job sparked the StopRush movement. Yesterday, the Daily Caller reported that a charity auction had to be cut short by two days because of “harassing bids” for Fluke’s contributed item: The […]

East Blogistan Has Always Been At War With Kimberlinia

onedoesnotsimply

As the Breitbart.com blogger responsible for “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day,” Lee Stranahan has been a central figure in one of the weirdest nontroversies ever concocted by East Blogistan. If you haven’t heard this one, it supposes that an obscure liberal activist is somehow responsible for everything everyone has ever said on the internet […]
