    Who is Brett Kimberlin? Brett Kimberlin, also known as the "Speedway Bomber," is the infamous male who set an Indiana town ablaze with a series of coordinated bombings in 1978. The man behind the madness was also convicted of thirty three additional crimes, including illegal use of a Department of Defense insignia, and the Presidential Seal, both of which were used to procure the hard-to-come-by explosives used in the bombings. As a result, Kimberlin served a 17 year prison sentence, in which time he mastered his skills of persuasion by earning a law degree, which he reportedly uses routinely. A...

    Devon Erickson, an 18-year-old high school student who has worked as a youth actor in Colorado, was identified by authorities as one of the two shooters accused of wounding nine students in a K-12 STEM school located in Douglas County. One of those students, 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo, died in the attack. Devon Erickson’s Facebook page says he lives in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. John Fenton, a news producer with CBS Denver, wrote that the “car towed from #stemshooting suspect’s home apparently has ‘F*** SOCIETY’ spray painted on the side. Also ‘666’ and a what looks like a pentagram sprayed on the...

    CNN ^ | April 26, 2019 | Sara Murray and David Shortell
    Butina pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign official. She admitted to using her contacts in GOP political circles, in the National Rifle Association and at the National Prayer Breakfast to influence US relations with Russia. As part of her plea deal, Butina has cooperated extensively with the government. A source familiar with the situation said she primarily provided information about her boyfriend, GOP political operative Paul Erickson, who was allegedly involved in her scheme. So far, Erickson has not faced charges in DC. Erickson was indicted in February on...

    Confession and Apology For the past two years, I have defended the press from President Donald Trump's criticism. Having worked at both CNN and Fox News, I know the good hard work so many reporters do to provide us with the news. We have a president who found a way out of going to Vietnam, and we have reporters who rush into war zones, risking their lives to provide accurate coverage of dangerous events.But I must confess I have a harder and harder time resisting the temptation to believe the American political press corps has become the enemy of the...

    The Resurgent ^ | October 5, 2018 | Erick Erickson
    I have long been critical of Republicans who abandoned principles to stand with Trump and I am as critical of Republicans who abandon principles to oppose Trump. Principle should stay because people go. The Kavanaugh nomination has been clarifying in this regard. Seeing some conservatives willing to aid and abet character assassins because Trump nominated Kavanaugh is disgusting. I find myself in an odd position where, for the first time, I see myself, one of the original so-called “Never Trump conservatives,” voting for President Trump in 2020. I have inevitably concluded at times that Trump would do something to push...

    Report: Anti-Trump GOP House Members ‘Happy to Take Out President’ Over Mueller, Looming Loss of CongressNever-Trump leader Erick Erickson reported Tuesday night via Instagram and Twitter an alleged conversation he had with an unnamed Republican Congressman over his and many of his fellow GOP Congressmen’s hatred of President Donald Trump and their willingness to “take out the President” through impeachment if he fires Special Counsel Robert Mueller. This would be their punishment for what they fear to be the loss of their Congressional majorities in the House and Senate come the November elections. Erickson said the Congressman is afraid to...

    Scripture teaches us that “when pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” (Prov 11:2). During the 2016 election, I was adamantly opposed to Donald Trump. Much of the media cited a piece I wrote in mid-February planting my flag against Trump as one of the major pieces to spark the #NeverTrump movement. I wrote in that piece that if the GOP went with Trump that the party was not only going to lose the White House, but see devastation down ballot. All the polling showed it. The polling had been right during the primaries. Trump was the...

    There was a time when people like Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Erick Erickson were powerful voices within the Conservative movement. That was BT or “Before Trump,” when most American Conservatives were asleep at the wheel and operating on status quo neo-conservative autopilot, completely unaware that the maverick radio voices we hailed as rebels, were actually globalist shills-for-hire. The silent majority was silent because we were napping, however, Trump has awakened the slumbering giant and we’re hip to the globalist trick played upon us by so-called radio conservatives, politicians, media, and pundits, who subtly pepper falsehoods like, amnesty is good,...

    The weekend's last RedState Gathering panel tried to keep a stiff upper lip in the face of the Trump Revolution. Only reality kept getting in the way. Katie Pavlich, a Townhall editor and Fox News contributor, spoke what was probably on many attendees' minds Sunday. She clearly didn't take any joy in putting it out there. "There aren't as many conservatives in the country as we thought there were," Pavlich said during the last of three intellectually packed days in Denver. The rise of Donald Trump, compounded with avowed socialist Bernie Sanders, made that all too clear over the past...

    This is one of those times I have to come to readers for help. We’ve got specific projects here that we want to do, but we do not have the revenue to begin those projects. As you can imagine, being a Never Trump site is not nearly as lucrative as being on the under the table Trump payroll. Specifically, we want to start doing some quality live-streaming of my radio program taking advantage of Facebook Live.

    Conservative blogger and broadcaster Erick Erickson joined Glenn’s radio program Wednesday to discuss the political landscape and the upcoming 2016 RedState Gathering in Denver, Colorado. When Glenn asked Erickson how we could put the fractured alliance between conservatives and libertarians back together, Erickson expressed his doubts on this happening anytime soon. “All the people who supported Trump in the primary are mad at the establishment. They hate the Republicans in Washington,” Erickson said. “Whether Trump wins or loses, these are going to be the Republicans still in charge, and Donald Trump has already said he’s perfectly happy cutting deals with...

    Editor’s Note: Erick Erickson gushed over Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, which was universally panned. The party of family values has just nominated a man on his third wife with numerous affairs and they are pitting him against a woman whose husband routinely cheated on her, but they kept their marriage together. Republicans are prone to cast aspersions on the Clinton marriage. “They did it for power” or “she stuck to him for her own benefit” are the most common ones. But in a day and age where marriages crumble and kids wind up...

    Glenn Beck is one of America’s most influential commentators, and we need to help him save face while abandoning his “Never Trump” vow. “My children” is the primary motivator Beck lists for refusing to endorse Donald Trump now that his favored candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, is out of the race. “Trump is the face of the GOP. Well, that makes us… pretty racist. It makes us big government guys. …I’m none of those things. …and I refuse to have my children think that I tolerated that.”Beck sounds perplexed. He claims a moral stand against Trump for the sake of his “children,”...

    A group of prominent conservative activists, including the writer and radio host Erick Erickson, aren’t satisfied with Bill Kristol’s suggestion of David French as a third party candidate and are still looking for another alternative to Donald Trump. The activists are working separately from Kristol, the editor of The Weekly Standard who favors French, according to two sources familiar with the discussions. “We’re not going to be jumping on board with what Kristol is doing,” said a person involved in the discussions. “We learned about this from the media along with everyone else.” Organizers of the self-described Conservative Against...

    Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist, calls Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson “useful idiots” regarding their defense of Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg. From The Federalist: Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson have both written pieces in response to this week’s meeting with Facebook – Beck as someone who attended, Erick as someone who didn’t. Both suggest the same thing about the conservative relationship with Facebook: that criticizing the corporate entity for its obvious bias in its news curation is an act of hypocrisy and nothing more than a Jesse Jackson-style shakedown. These are the complaints of useful idiots. They...

    It’s predictable; it’s transparent (if you dig into it); and yet it remains as one of the most undiscussed aspects to the current political climate: Multi-media political pundits, including big name National Radio Talk Show Hosts, being paid by DC operatives, Super-PACs, and Campaigns to protect the establishment figures. They hide, at least they try to, behind layers of constructed LLC’s intended to protect them from sunlight. They also rely upon delays in legally required reporting timeframes to carry out their goals and avoid discovery until after they have been successful in their efforts. Another example surfaces today. Erick Erickson’s...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 03-29-2016 | Sundance
    Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface. These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden. They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict. So it perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that Eric Errickson’s media venture “The Resurgent“, is taking Super-PAC money from the (formerly Scott Walker advocates and financial backers) Ricketts family of Wisconsin who fund...

The funding from the neoconservative billionaire wasn't disclosed to Erickson's readers at the new venture. Singer, who is a pro-gay marriage establishment billionaire, was one of the major financial donors for Marco Rubio. Singer is also a major supporter of National Review which was dispensing the #NeverTrump at CPAC.
