Awesome!

Despite threats made to Ali’s family by Kimberlin associates and new legal threats waged by one Kevin Zeese, he and the NBC are not backing down. They are standing with the Kimberlin targets who continue to fight these ongoing menaces. Joining the battle: many, many excellent First Amendment lawyers (including Eugene Volokh[note comments there...ed], who on Tuesday noted his pro bono involvement at his blog.)

Today, Ali and the National Bloggers Club announce the following important development in the Maryland case involving blogger Aaron Walker — who was gagged by an ignorant, free speech-trampling judge:

NATIONAL BLOGGERS CLUB ANNOUNCES THAT BLOGGER AARON WALKER HAS APPEALED AGAINST CONVICTED DOMESTIC TERRORIST BRETT KIMBERLIN

WASHINGTON, DC — The National Bloggers Club, Inc. is announcing that it will continue to raise funds to provide financial relief to member Aaron Walker. An appeal to the peace order granted by Judge C.J. Vaughey was filed Monday.

Last week, the Maryland judge issued a 6-month peace order and jailed attorney Aaron Walker, preventing him from mentioning Brett Kimberlin in public. A blogger and Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney wrote of the decision: “[T]his is a clear-cut case of a First Amendment violation — about as clear-cut as you’ll ever hear.” Since then, Walker has been working with a new legal team and the National Bloggers Club to legally restore his free speech rights.

“We’ve got over a dozen lawyers coordinating on this now, volunteering their time. Aaron’s First Amendment rights are being violated when he is barred from even being able to publicly mention the case or Kimberlin’s violent past,” said Bloggers Club president Ali A. Akbar.

Akbar continued, “Yesterday they came after the Bloggers Club and my family — my family. We’re not stopping. We’ve got to raise $5,000 more dollars to continue to stand with Aaron Walker and I’m positive supporters will continue to step up.”

The National Bloggers Club is working to promote KimberlinFiles.org, where supporters continue to give financial and written support to this cause.

In keeping with the ruling of the court, Walker’s response was simply: “Thank you.”

PLEASE give if you can and spread the word.

h/t @flynnstake RT of @BobBelvedere's post here(Belvedere has been following this closely). In Belevedere's post he links to Flynn's guest post here: The Strange Paring of Brett Kimberlin and Become.com [Guest Post by Flynn]. Basically, Flynn did a reverse DNS lookup from Kimberlin's site. One of the sites was Become.com. It appears to be a legitimate business so he contacted them asking why or did they know their site is connected to the convicted speedway bomber. He gave them all the info on this guy.

>>>>>crickets<<<<<, nada answer. Twitter @Become nada, zilch.

Stay tuned.

BTW, never ever go to any of Kimberlin's sites without protection. Use Anonymouse, Tor, or Hide My Ass!.
