Inside Neal Rauhauser’s Twisted Mind

Posted on | June 3, 2012 | 45 Comments

I’m about 1,200 words into a long follow-up post — trying to connect more of the scattered dots in the Brett Kimberlin orbit — but meanwhile I see Patterico has added important background on the Neal Rauhauser “Kookpocalypse” drama:

After Aaron Walker went to court to get a peace order based on the [“Kookpocalypse”] site, Rauhauser sent me and others an email titled “Aaron Walker murder/suicide risk” that said, among other things:

Given Walker’s state of mind I would say his wife might find him hanging in the garage tonight when she gets home from work. Another possible outcome would be a two digit body count from some mosque in Virginia after Aaron goes full tilt Jared Loughner on the congregation. Someone who knows his wife or real world associates in Virginia should take steps to get him hospitalized before something grim happens.

My emphasis. Note the reference to Aaron’s wife. Bringing spouses into the harassment is a common tactic with this crowd.

Read the whole thing at Patterico. Rauhauser (who has boasted of being armed with a Glock 9-mm pistol) was making ominous threats online, Kimberlin was pursuing a ruthlessly vindictive strategy of legal and workplace harassment against Walker, and when Walker tried to put a stop to it, Rauhauser suggested that Walker was contemplating some act of desperate violence.

Keep in mind that the “Kookpocalypse” that Rauhauser kept hyping turned out to be his release of an instant classic of paranoid literature — “Andrew Breitbart’s ISR Cell?” — as part of a 530-megabyte package of “data” that Rauhauser delivered to the FBI and New Jersey police who, if they bothered to take one look at it, could have drawn only one conclusion: Neal Rauhauser is a demented crackpot.

Patterico points out that Rauhauser’s attempt to conjure up a conspiratorial connection between Mike Stack and others in his “Kookpocalypse” scenario is a drastic failure: Mike Stack had nothing to do with Seth Allen, Mandy Nagy, Aaron Walker or Patterico. Stack seems to feature prominently in Rauhauser’s weird tale only because Stack was involved in the WeinerGate saga. That incident was unrelated to Brett Kimberlin, but Rauhauser is obsessed with what he calls the “Weiner smear” and so these things are all connected inside Rauhauser’s feverish brain.

    He even made a youtube video bragging about the ‘Kookpocalypse’ :

  • Bob Belvedere

    Lee Stranahan is saying to be weary of Seth Allen:
    In most of the write-ups about Brett Kimberlin–including Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day–Seth Allen was barely mentioned.
    Let’s do it this way : this is Seth’s blog. Go and read it yourself. In fact, pick just about any entry you want at random to read.
    See if you can see the problem.

    SA link:

    What say you?

  • Shawn Gillogly

    “Weary” means to be tired.
    “Wary” is the word that would make sense in that sentence, meaning “To be concerned.”

    However, I’m not sure LS’ statement indicates anything other than having found a more promising target in AW, Kimberlin moved onto him.

    As for Seth’s blog, it’s his (typically left-wing) MO to assume everyone owes him for what he did, even if Patterico decided to do their own work on Kimberlin rather than rely on SA. I have read elsewhere he is apologetic to AW, and that counts for something, at least. I don’t think anyone has trusted Seth as far as they can throw him. The issue is the 1st amendment violations and personal threats those who have attacked Brett Kimberlin in general have been subjected to, and why does the Left continue to support such a stormtrooper?

  • MrPaulRevere

    Seth seems to be a tad conflicted because he has to be aligned with ‘wingnuts’ re. Kimberlin. Maybe he should have a talk with David Horowitz.

  • robertstacymccain

    The point is that this is not a story about Seth Allen — or Mandy Nagy or Patrick Frey or Aaron Walker or Mike Stack or me. You don’t have to admire or trust Seth or any one of us, because the story is not about us. As I keep reminding people: This is a story about Brett Kimberlin.

  • robertstacymccain

    I fixed the “weary”/”wary” typo.

  • Bob Belvedere

    That’s what I get for typing while I’m weary from nine days of trying to cover this story in full [and the bourbon I had last night, I’m sure, didn’t help].

    Thanks, Stacy & Shawn.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Indeed, it is, but we have to be very careful about who we associate with in our fight.

    The fact that Lee Stranahan sent me an e-mail to buy his book the day after EBABK Day has made his motivations suspect in my eyes.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Also, Seth Allen has attacked Ali:

    Whose side are these people on?

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    And you are doing a hell of a job keeping the focus on Kimberlin.  Thank you.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    The victims of Brett Kimberlin’s attacks (including the impact on you, but also Aaron Walker, etc.) are certainly part of the story as it relates to Kimberlin.  

  • Dianna Deeley

     My eyes are so swollen  from allergies that reading is difficult, today. That said, these articles about Neal Rauhauser are illuminating a great many things I either did not know or had forgotten. Excellent work from both you and Patterico.

    Oh, no, Rauhauser sent *Maltego* graphs to the FBI!!!!

    Surely you realized you are doomed, now.  

  • Adjoran

     He got a whiff that money was being raised for a legal fund and believes he is entitled to some of it.    Not to mention he seems “a bit tetched,” as the country folk used to say.

  • ThePaganTemple

     Aaaaarrrggghh no laddie this be a story about yerself and the process servers that be on hot on yer trail, shiver me timbers.

  • Dianna Deeley


    By the way, why does everyone want me to buy a Kindle Fire? It’s like a theme of my life, lately.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady
  • Adjoran

    Wasn’t one of the fauxndations paying for “security” for Kimberlin?  Is that money going to Rauhauser?  I mean, this guy probably isn’t holding down any regular job – unless he’s in an isolated position with little human contact.

    Does Maryland make public their concealed-carry permits?  One possible reason for needing a CCL is security work.  If this guy, clearly a very volatile individual, is walking around armed, he’s a threat to anyone.

  • Dianna Deeley

     Hey, it’s never yet “talk like a pirate day”!

    And you need to remember how to be a Professional Pirate, too.

  • Dianna Deeley

     I found grants for operating expenses, and a number for named “campaigns” which have websites with not much original content on them – shared, mostly, with VR if you’re curious – but I don’t recall a grant for “security”. Can you point me to it, with year and granting org? Because if so, I’m going to try to tie it to an expenditure, like “occupancy” or something.

  • Dianna Deeley

    Adjoran mentioned something that tied with something else: Where is Neal Rauhauser living? My initial impression – which means absolutely nothing – was that he lived in or near New York. 

  • Dianna Deeley

     Finally read Lee’s take. I decided that Lee still can’t spell, punctuate, or use apostrophes worth a damn, and I’m just too tired to care, otherwise.

  • Ladd Ehlinger Jr.

    I suggested to Seth that he read some Dale Carnegie. Mind you, that’s a suggestion coming from me.

  • Bob Belvedere

    It did – thanks.

  • Bob Belvedere

    ‘Cause you hawt?

  • Dianna Deeley

     Thanks, but *snort*.

  • Mike Rogers

    More great stuff!
    Blogged and linked the recent ‘Kimberlin Files”

  • Mike Rogers

     Seth’s a liberal.
    He may have some loyalty to Aaron for defending him, but not to the rest of us – he’s a liberal – what do you expect!

  • Adjoran

     It was quoted from something Rauhauser complained, I think about Stack, which I saw at Patterico.  He claimed four people were harassed:  himself, Kimberlin, and two women associated with various porn crusades.  He gave both he and Kimberlin as being in the same Maryland County. 

    I can’t remember where the “security” reference was, it might not have been an expense, could have been a claim that the foundation was having to pay for security because of people harassing Kimberlin, and not from the expenses.  At the time it didn’t seem important, perhaps even just more lying, but in light of Rauhauser bragging about his Glock and their domiciles being so close, now it might be a clue to where more of the money really goes.

    Didn’t the “rent” expense for one of them explode in the last year or so? 

  • Kaitian

    I seriously don’t get what the fuck is going on here.  Weinergate was self-inflicted and it’s no different than what Larry Craig did to himself.  Is it just bizarro world all in Rauhauser’s head?  That there’s some convoluted conspiracy at work that only 
    Rauhauser sees and we’re all fools for not seeing it thanks to being contaminated by republican poison?

  • K-Bob

    You know how this is all going to go, right?  When a thug picks on a kid in school, do they EVER throw out the thug and make school safe again?

    No, they throw out both kids for “being disruptive.”

  • Bob Belvedere

    I know…I know…it was a moment of weakness.
