9. This Makes No Sense
Anyone with common sense who looks into this can see the holes in the Clint Curtis story. It's as if a strawman was created to both boost the BradBlog and tie the election integrity movement in with the notion of tinfoil. Then the DailyKos came out with its clampdown on posts about election fraud. Then Mark Lindeman goes on about citizen journalists riding on hobby horses, as if that is the be all end all of the story.

It is beyond strange that a convicted bomber named Brett Kimberlin is bankrolling this sort of thing.

Larisa of RawStory even went so far as to post that he was innocent, that he was a political prisoner.

Kimberlin had gotten thrown into solitary confinement after attempting to tell the world he had sold pot to Dan Quayle. There is one source which links Kimberlin to the funding of RawStory also, which certainly would constitute that Alexandrovna had a conflict of interest, when she tried to minimize the true history of this former domestic terrorist. Maybe people can turn over a new leaf. But I doubt he got that much money from the pot thing.

A few other things are troubling. If one looks at the comments on the BradBlog, many of them sound way over the top. E.G. There is the mod named Agent99 glorifying Cynthia McKinney without any mention of her recent bizarre comments about 5,000 prisoners executed after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.

There is a certain methodology to tinfoil by association. If all these various elements are coincidental, they have certainly worked towards framing this topic as an enigma simply one level above the 9/11 dungeon. It has served the ptb's to have a PhD mentioning exit polls at every opportunity. My fear is that there is no real freedom of speech or association on the internet. Facts are being buried through the evoking of authority along with the image of an unsubstantiated blogosphere. Thus, if a story doesn't make it to the television, the perception becomes that it must not be true.

If BradBlog {Brad Friedman- Co-Founder of Velvet revolution} and RawStory weren't so secretive about Kimberlin's true past, there wouldn't be all these nagging doubts about BradBlog and RawStory.

Finally, just take a look at any merry-go-round, predictable thread anywhere on the internet. How often does one now find dialogue and research with logical consistency? Not very often, imho. And that is a sad development which keeps escalating.
