Senator Saxby Chambliss Calls for DOJ Investigation of Terrorist Brett Kimberlin’s Assault on First Amendment and “SWATting”

By Gary P Jackson

Finally, someone who can actually do something about murdering domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin’s reign of terror, is taking action.

As you know, Brett Kimberlin, who works for the Obama regime, has been harassing Conservative bloggers who expose him. This harassment includes death threats, that have caused some bloggers to take their families and go underground.

The terrorist has also called one blogger’s wife’s place of work, causing her to loser her job. Kimberlin has also been engaged in a practice known as “SWATting.” SWATting is Kimberlin, or his associates, targeting a blogger, and calling 9-1-1, pretending to be that blogger, and claiming to have committed a serious crime, often murder, and announcing they were armed. Of course, the objective here is to see the local police’s S.W.A.T. team go in, guns ablazing, and if someone gets killed, oh well.

Kimberlin’s latest victim of this was CNN and Red State’s Erick Erickson. Thankfully, he had already notified friends in the Atlanta police department that this sort of thing might happen. We recommend any blogger exposing Kimberlin do the same.

Kimberlin has attacked Utah’s Senator, Orrin Hatch before, but it was Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss who decided to stand up against the terrorist and demand an investigation. Senator Chambliss served Attorney General Eric Holder a letter demanding an investigation.

Chambliss Demands Inquiry Into Attacks Against Conservative Commentators

Sends letter to Attorney General Eric Holder about recent “SWAT-ting” incidents

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder regarding recent reports that several conservative political commentators have been targeted with harassing and frightening actions. Chambliss demanded that Holder examine these cases to determine if federal laws have been violated.

These dangerous hoaxes, also known as “SWAT-ting,” occur when a perpetrator contacts local police to report a violent incident at a target’s home. These callers are believed to utilize voice-over IP (VOIP) and other less-traditional telecommunications methods to make the call appear to come from the target residence and to hide the caller’s true identity.

In response, a dispatcher sends a SWAT team or other police unit in a heightened state of readiness to the unsuspecting target’s residence. Targets only learn of these false reports when a large police presence descends upon their homes.

In the letter, Chambliss states that “Any potentially criminal action that incites fear, seeks to silence a dissenting opinion, and collaterally wastes the resources of law enforcement should be given close scrutiny at all levels… Regardless of any potential political differences that may exist, threats and intimidation have no place in our national political discourse. Those who choose to enter into that political discourse should not have to worry about potential threats to their or their family’s safety.”

Here’s the text of the letter he wrote the Attorney General:

Dear Attorney General Holder:

I am writing with concern regarding recent reports that several members of the community of online political commentators have been targeted with harassing and frightening actions. Any potentially criminal action that incites fear, seeks to silence a dissenting opinion, and collaterally wastes the resources of law enforcement should be given close scrutiny at all levels.

According to these individuals’ reports, these dangerous hoaxes, also known as “SWAT-ting,” have a perpetrator contacting a local police department to report some type of violent incident at the home of the target. It is believed that these callers utilize some of the less traditional telecommunications methods, including voice over IP (VOIP) to make the call appear as though it is coming from the target residence and to better hide the true identity of the caller.

In response, a dispatcher then sends a large number of understandably anxious police units, in a heightened state of readiness, to the home of the still unsuspecting target. The first that the target or their unsuspecting family learns of this false report to law enforcement is when they are shocked to see an abnormal police presence descending on their residence.

The use of SWAT-ting as a harassment tool is apparently not new, but its use as a tool for targeting political speech appears to be a more recent development. During the last year, some of the more widely reported cases of SWAT-ting have taken place against blog operators across the country, including in Georgia. The emerging pattern is both disturbing and dangerous.

While these incidences are currently small in number, and have fortunately not led to any accidental physical harm, they are extremely concerning. The perpetrators appear to be targeting individuals who are vigorously exercising their First Amendment rights to political speech. As you know, these reported efforts to intimidate those who choose to enter the political forum and express their opinions are in conflict with the founding principles of our nation.

Regardless of any potential political differences that may exist, threats and intimidation have no place in our national political discourse. Those who choose to enter into that political discourse should not have to worry about potential threats to their or their family’s safety.

While I am certain that local law enforcement is reviewing each of these instances, I am asking you to please look into each of these cases as well to determine if any federal laws may have been violated. Future targets of SWAT-ting, whether engaged in political speech or not, may not be so fortunate as to escape physical harm.

I appreciate your attention to this matter, and I look forward to your response no later than June 29, 2012. Please feel free to contact my office with any questions or comments that you may have.

We want to applaud Senator Chambliss for bravely standing up for the First Amendment rights of all Americans, and demanding an end to harassment of those exercising their right to be heard.

Senator Chambliss was Sarah Palin’s first endorsement after the 2008 election, in fact, just days after the election. It was a solid endorsement, that is certainly paying off now!

Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy has more on all of this here.

As you know, a liberal judge in Maryland actually jailed blogger Aaron Walker, one of Kimberlin’s victims. A complete travesty of justice.

Robert Stacy McCain reports Walker has filed for appeal. Blogger Ali A. Akbar, who is helping Walker, has been harassed [to put it mildly] by Kimberlin and associates as well.

Both Stacy McCain and Michelle Malkin have been keeping us all updated on this important story. If you look at the bottom of McCain’s report on Walker, you can see the latest goings on.

These are dangerous times for all Americans who care about liberty and freedom, and this animal, Brett Kimberlin, a convicted terrorist on parole, has no business walking the streets. It’s time for all Americans to stand up and demand action.

Again, we want to thank Senator Saxby Chambliss for his support. The bigger question though, is where are the other 99 Senators, and 435 Congressmen, and why aren’t they standing with him!
