    Me = Barrett Brown
    Patrick = Patrick Frey, LA county prosecutor and conservative
blogger Patterico

    In this chat, Frey accepts offer by alleged criminal mastermind
Barrett Brown to have Anonymous operatives reduce the visibility of a
blog post by Jeff Goldstein, a "classical liberal" blogger, academic,
and Frey foe who runs ProteinWisdom.com. Brown agrees to look into the
matter. Further conversations may be released as appropriate. As
noted, this leak is being conducted in retaliation for Frey's failure
to readily answer questions about a possible connection between
Confederate/white nationalist Washington Times editor Robert Stacy
McCain and the HBGary criminal organization as well as Frey's decision
to publicly attack an RNC protester who was arrested in possession of
a weapon, with the final straw being R.S. McCain's latest attack on
Brown, whom the author and conservative stalwart denounced in public
as deserving of FBI attention in 2011 - before later claiming instead
that Brown is in fact an FBI informant based on his own
misunderstanding of facts known even to many reporters who have
covered Anonymous in the last few years. Frey is also the target of
legal action due to another incident involving a different activist
who is being represented by Jay Leiderman, the "Anonymous lawyer" who
has secured pro-bono legal defense for more than a dozen other
citizens who have been raided or charged by the feds since late 2010.
Journalists interested in further details, as well as the bizarre
connection between this and the "SWAT" story from earlier this year,
may as always contact Barrett Brown at barriticus@gmail.com

    Don't wait. Retaliate.

    Patrick: Google Patrick Frey
      One of his bullshit posts is on the first page
    12:41 AM me: I'm assuming it's transparent BS, though, of the sort
that anyone who matters can see through?
      I'll look though
      meanwhile I'm getting off opiates
      decided to make my old heroin addiction public
      to avoid it being revealed by someone else
    12:42 AM Patrick: No, it's a link to another post that would take
hours to debunk even though it's utter bullshit
     me: oic
      Well
      That can be changed
      by one of several methods
    12:43 AM Patrick: Oh?
     me: yep
      I'll have to think a bit about details
      you need to remember
      and this is something I don't say publicly
      NYT just refers to me as "Barrett Brown," for instance
      others as "informal spokesman"
    12:44 AM Anonymous has no leaders
      or titles
      but certain people have more influence than others
      now, should note, I'm not talking about anything illegal
      I don't commit crimes
    12:45 AM off the top of my head, though
      hmmm
      let me Google goldstein real quick
      hmm
    12:46 AM Goldstein has top three results as positive references,
plus one referring to someone else with same name
      then Sadly No piece
      which you really should read, by the way
      it can be changed such that top result is an article by mee
     Patrick: Oh, I have read it
     me: on Encyclopedia Dramatica
      detailing everything
      now
    12:47 AM obviously a direct approach would not wokr
      as in, a bargain whereby he deletes or allows you to respond
within the post
      he won't accept that
      most people would
      but most people aren't already fucked
      in case I'm being cryptic
      I'll note that on a couple of occasions I have had employers who
owed me money
      and refused to pay up
    12:48 AM until such time as I made it such that the top result for
their name was an account of their flaws and failures
      oh, you may have seen what I did to my girlfriend's faggot roommate
      MCCain and Donald Douglas both ran the video
      I took it down after he moved out
      again, though, not likely to work
      but Darleen Click
      she probably wouldn't like it if I were to reveal
    12:49 AM that she asked me for favors
     Patrick: ?
     me: help getting into Mad Magazine, lol
      I've got the e-mails
      understand that I am considered a great villain over there
     Patrick: Oh, for her cartoons?
     me: and she folded like a fucking umbrella as soon as I offered help
      being a person of no real virtue
    12:50 AM yeah, her "cartoons"
      not very talented, regardless of the politics
      ham-fisted
      that's just something to consider in terms of relevant elements, thoguh
      lemme google you real quick
    12:51 AM I may have to bring some specialists in on this
     Patrick: Hm
    12:53 AM me: sorry, fucking GF bitching at me on IM, just ignoring her now
     Patrick: Fucking GF!
     me: damn right
      oh, Douglas hates you too?
      oh
    12:54 AM oh shit
      over McCain!
      okay, dude, we're gonna get this taken care of
      fucking Douglas
     Patrick: The Donalde?
    12:55 AM me: yeah
     Patrick: Yeah
     me: fucking douche
      disingenuous
      I really respected you for being honest about McCain
      because most are't
      might hurt the precious cause
    12:56 AM Patrick: I've tried to mend fences with McCain. I don't
think he's necessarily a bad man. I have not retracted and

    never will retract my belief that the statement I criticized him
for was racist. But I still don't know that he is A

    racist. Full disclosure
     me: I mean, I know you don't know all of it
      I don't dislike him
      we talk occasionally
      I talk to most of my enemies
      but, yeah, he has some beliefs that he won't admit to
     Patrick: Do I fall in that category? :)
      I don't think so
    12:57 AM me: well, he did write that article for American Renaissance
      now, the article itself is not anti-black
     Patrick: Not so sure about that
     me: remember that I'm not a liberal
      I don't cry racism over nothing
      and I don't refer to him as racist
     Patrick: I researched his kids and I think it didn't quite add up
     me: dude
      I'm from Texas
     Patrick: The number of kids he had, that is
     me: wait, what?
    12:58 AM Patrick: The American Renaissance article
     me: no, that was him
     Patrick: The person who wrote it talked about how many kids he had
     me: he hasn't said otherwise himself
     Patrick: Wasn't it under a pen name?
     me: yes
      the one he used elsewhere
      I put this in my book, man
     Patrick: I don't think it's the same number of kids
     me: it went through fact checkers and lawyers
      well
      how many did they mention in article?
    12:59 AM it appeared in 2002
      some of his kids are young
      and it might have been written earlier
      suffice to say
      that he himself has all but acknowledged it was him
     Patrick: I think I tried to figure out when they were born
     me: I didn't realize others thought that was under dispute or I
would have made the case more plainly
     Patrick: But I forget the details
     me: like I said, we confirmed it
      can't rememeber how
    1:00 AM but it was good enough for the lawyers and fact-checkers
      anyway
      yeah, the guy is just overly pro-white
      I don't really care
      I'm not concerned about the extent to which someone is into his
racial heritage, etc
      that's small beer
    1:01 AM it''s just that he also makes accusations of racism
      and so have a lot of his colleagues
      without acknowledging this
      it's the dishonesty that infuriates me
      anyway
      back to the matter
      assuming this Donald Douglas article isn't damaging
    1:02 AM I'm assuming that, I mean
      agreed?
      oh, ok
      just noticed that Jeff's piece is #2
    1:03 AM I see
      pseudo-sarcastic charge of Semitism
      Protein Wisdom specialty
      well, for one thing
      as you're aware, to the extent that something else pushes it
down, it gets... pushed down
    1:04 AM to the extent you break some stories from those e-mails
      that will help
      but
      that's not enough
      I'd like to see Jeff beaten more severely
      might have to think this over
      talk to my Anons, etc
    1:05 AM there's always a way
    1:06 AM Patrick: Hm
      As long as any way is legal, I'm all for it
     me: well
    1:07 AM what if it's legal...
      but
     Patrick: Do I need to hear the rest?
     me: nope
     Patrick: There you go
      It's legal, you say? Great!
     me: Good man
      Hooray!
      Yeah, we'll get on this

My question for readers is why did LA country prosecutor Patrick Frey carry on a correspondence with anarchist and FBI target Barrett Brown, who was raided by FBI in March and who has been referred to by intelligence outfits like Imperva as a member of the LulzSec crime syndicate? What else went on between them?

Los Angeles and Frey's conservative readership alike deserve answers to these questions, which I will provide over the next few days.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.

    You can hold an opinion, or a grudge, or a stock, or a picket sign. But the time really to be at your best Is when you hold the hand of a trusting child.

    I thought they already banned everyone who thought this ridiculous campaign of harassment against Frey was a good idea.

    •  Er... (0+ / 0-)

      .... I've never mentioned Frey's name before in public other than to commend him for covering the detained Marine. He and I were friends up until recently. I am releasing this for the same reason that it has been understood and received elsewhere, at better venues with less degenerate Democrats - because it involves a prosecutor in a major city asking for a covert favor from an individual (myself) who has since been raided by the FBI and was a focus of them and other law enforcement branches across the globe throughout most of the discussions the two of us had, and because the favor involves one of several actions against private citizens I was asked to perform by this prosecutor - who is now being sued for similar moves against other opponents and is otherwise newsworthy (to CNN and whatnot, at least) due to this SWAT story that I'd managed to avoid until recently.
