In a Cowger Nation exclusive, we have found concrete evidence that shows “conservative wiz kid” CJ Pearson partnered with a convicted felon who has a history of scamming people through credit fraud.
It was revealed on July 6, 2012, that Ali A. Akbar is CJ’s personal manager. According to a Crooks and Liars story published in 2012, Akbar was part of a crime spree in 2006, blazing a six-year trail of fraud. Akbar stole items from a woman’s home, broke into a vehicle, stole a debit card, and withdrew money from the victim’s account. He was then convicted with a felony, yet this record did not keep Akbar out of Republican politics.
Almost a year later, Akbar was accused of discussing election fraud tactics. Joey A. Dauben, a former colleague, was the accuser.
In April 2008, Akbar pleaded guilty to the debit card fraud and was sentenced to four years probation and restitution of the stolen money. His probation ended in May 2012. Since then, Akbar created the National Bloggers Club and runs it from his mother’s house.
The National Bloggers Club has been in charge of collecting donations for CJ Pearson and has scammed over $2,900 from conservative supporters. Crooks and Liars reported in 2012 that “Akbar has never applied to the IRS for 501(c)3 status — despite having claimed as much on the NBC Facebook page.” Journalist Bill Schmalfeldt contacted the Internal Revenue Service; he was told that no EIN existed in their database for a National Bloggers Club; however, we have now received a tip from an undisclosed source that they have now registered with the IRS as a 501(c)3.
This would be less upsetting if Akbar did not have a long criminal past.
We have included the documentation from the case below:
After CJ allegedly received “death threats” directed at him and his family, Cowger Nation reported that the tweets would not be considered death threats. They were death wishes, because the user did not threaten to kill him, but wished he would die. Whether this user actually exists or not is presently unknown, and there has not been any solid evidence regarding the user’s identity.
The National Bloggers Club, along with CJ Pearson, created a fundraiser on Rally.org, to allegedly raise money for:
“New video and camera equipment to allow CJ to continue making his viral videos.
CJ has a DC trip coming up in a couple of weeks. It would be wonderful if we could put some funds in his pocket so that he can experience everything that he wants to do while he’s there.
New virus and security software for his computers. Don’t let hackers aid in silencing CJ.
CJ needs a new suit. Let’s get him one!
If we raise some funds, CJ can boost his posts on Facebook to reach more users, or advertise his YouTube Channel.”
Over 1,700 people have donated to
this possible scam, with public donations of up to $100.
Pearson even appeared on two Fox News shows to discuss the threat including Fox and Friends, and The Kelly File.
CJ appeared to send a tweet “forgiving” the twitter user, after she said she was sorry. It has been speculated by many twitter users, some of which have donated money, that this was all a hoax for CJ to gain more popularity and financially benefit.
On July 7, 2015, CJ even said on his twitter account just hours before this story broke that Akbar has always had his back.
.@ali thanks for always having my back; even when you get grief for it. You’re a true asset to the conservative movement. We got this!

CJ gave a brief remark, almost dismissing the concerns on his Facebook page:
“So a few people have voiced their concerns about my business partnership with Ali A. Akbar. I intend to release a statement soon. Right after Starbucks.”
We have a credible undisclosed source, who has worked with CJ, that revealed to us that CJ was well aware of Akbar’s criminal history before he decided to make him his business partner. Not only was he aware, but he was warned not to make him his partner.
In a video released during the incident Ali A. Akbar referred to CJ as being “almost a brother” to him.
In an article published yesterday, The High School Conservative team revealed that CJ Pearson is not even a conservative. The young pundit went after Ronald Reagan claiming that the former President’s view of conservatism was wrong, and he “is not the God of conservatism.”
It appears that this entire scheme has been a disgusting attempt to use a 12 year old to benefit financially by ripping off innocent conservatives.
UPDATE: After Cowger Nation exposé, Ali A. Akbar resigned as CJ Pearson’s personal manager.
