As 2012 has been winding down, we’ve been looking at how the year has gone in TDPK legal cases that reached closure. The summary is a batting average of .000.
TDPK has had help with his shenanigans, first, from his crew, the members of Team Kimberlin, and, second, from a group of enablers. His crew have been a particular help on the Internet. First Mate Neal Rauhauser fancies himself a master of Internet skullduggery. Actually, he’s merely a hacker wannabe who seems to engage mostly in sock puppetry and crude identity theft. He is pretty good at social engineering with some kinds of people. Barrett Brown, for example. FMNR is one of the codefendants in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. He spent the year dodging service on the suit while writing blog posts about it. The only time I saw him in court was when he accompanied TDPK to the 5 July peace order trial. My esteemed colleague Stacy McCain believes that FMNR was the writer of the Breitbart Unmasked blog until Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt took over.
Crew Member Ron Brynaert is the other et al. defendant in that Virginia lawsuit. He has kept a relatively low profile through the year, at times, trying to disassociate himself with other crew members. One wonders if he might be the first mutineer.
Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt, OTOH, has become a gung ho member. Since taking over Breitbart Unmasked, he has become Team Kimberlin’s public, um, … I guess mouthpiece is the best word, although that seems to be the wrong bodily orifice. He has childishly tried to bait those of us who have written about TDPK and, occasionally, stepped over the line to really threatening behavior. Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, and Lee Stranahan have all been on the receiving in of his cyberstalking. I have merely been the target of obnoxious and obscene tweets on Twitter. While he reminds some folks of a Jabba the Hutt wannabe, I see CBBS as more like Signor Ugarte in Casablanca.
Ugarte: You despise me, don’t you?
Rick Blaine: I probably would if I gave you any thought.
Imaginary Friend Occupy Rebellion (aka Sheridan) is the Twitter account of an allegedly female TDPK groupie. I believe that the account is a sock puppet and blocked it as soon as I began receiving obscene tweets. As of this posting, the account’s tweets are private.
In addition to the members of his crew, TDPK has a group of enablers.
Jeffery R. Cohen, Esq., is the Executive Director the two Kimberlin “charities.” I note with some interest that the SWATting threat I received came as a comment to a post about Mr. Cohen and his relationship to TDPK via the “charities.”
Brad Friedman is listed as one of the Directors of Velvet Revolution US, the 501(c)4 “charity.”
Kevin Zeese, Esq., is listed on several pages of the VRUS website as a Director of the organization. He is not listed as such on any of their legal filings. Mr. Zeese has filed several frivolous bar complaints against such individuals as Associate Justice Clarence Thomas on behalf of VRUS. During 2012, he sent a letter on behalf of VRUS to the National Bloggers Club demanding that they preserve certain documents. He is also a former Green Party candidate for U. S. Senator in Maryland.
Myra Lowenthal, CPA, is the accountant who prepared and signed the IRS Form 990 submitted through 2010 for Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution US.
I’ve been writing about TDPK since late May. Like Patterico, Stacy McCain, and others, I’m committed to writing true things about the activities of Team Kimberlin. As Patrick Frey says, unlike those bozos, I have a life apart from the Internet. Cyberstalking won’t deflect me. Childish tweets won’t deter me. During 2013, you can expect me to continue posting . One day, when I choose to do so, when I feel the time is ripe, I will begin posting some of the more, shall we say, “interesting,” information that the Vast Hogewash Research Organization has uncovered.
It won’t be pretty, but it will be true.
Meanwhile, we have one more day left in 2012. On New Year’s Eve, I’ll present an updated version of the most popular TDPK post of the year. Stay tuned.
