Over the past weekend, Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it) published a series of documents related to The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s attempt to take over several entities associated with Ali Akbar. This particular document caught my eye.
Why would Velvet Revolution US be interested in having an interest in a business called Pundit Syndication, LLC? What would it do with such a trade name? And who are the other members of the limited liability company beside VRUS?
I directed those questions to Jeffrey Cohen, the Executive Director of VRUS. (Mr. Cohen is a lawyer who practices in the area of trademarks and related intellectual property.) I have not, as yet, had a response.
I think so, Brain … but if I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.
I think so, Brain … but who put the cat into the bag in the first place?
The Gentle Reader may remember the motion to dismiss filed on behalf of Michelle Malkin and Twitchy in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed an opposition to that motion. Here is the Malkin/Twitchy reply.
As Aaron Walker has noted, that’s gonna leave a mark.

I can tell when Team Kimberlin gets anxious. The rate goes up on the obscene comments sent to this blog.
I’ve had three so far today.
Another defendant has filed a reply to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s opposition to a pending motion in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.
The outrageous parallel Mr. Kimberlin tries to draw between himself and various persecuted individuals and groups through the ages is preposterous, and deserves no response other than to note that none of those tragic victims ever blew anyone’s leg off, perjured themselves, or concocted a lie specifically designed (and timed) to throw an election for the Presidency of the United States.
Stay tuned for more with the next Team Kimberlin Post of the Day at 12:02 am ET.
Prof. Reynolds examines the prefatory clause of the Second Amendment—”A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”—and asks some interesting questions.
Read the whole thing.
I think so, Brain … so now that we’ve got the Plaintiffs’s hat size, should I get out the tin foil?
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11 requires that a person submitting a court paper must certify that
the factual contentions have evidentiary support or, if specifically so identified, will likely have evidentiary support after a reasonable opportunity for further investigation or discovery.
With that in mind, consider this bit from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s Second Amended Complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.I suppose TDPK bases that nonsense on this blog post which he included as an exhibit with his opposition to Michelle Malkin’s motion to dismiss.Yes, that is a picture of Glenn Reynolds, but everything else TDPK alleges is wrong. He isn’t holding a shotgun; that’s a .50 caliber rifle. He didn’t post the picture with the caption addressed to TDPK. As the Gentle Reader can see, the post is from the Charlie Foxtrot blog which had lifted the image from an Instapundit (Prof. Reynolds’s blog) post about shooting the custom-built rifle. Finally, IIRC, Glenn Reynolds is not now a member of the board of the National Bloggers Club, although he may have been at the time of the Charlie Foxtrot post.
So much for due diligence.
UPDATE—Here is the original Instapundit post from which the picture was taken. Note that it dates from October, 2010. That’s well before any of the activity alleged in TDPK’s complaints.
The picture on the left is a raw image of the x-rays detected by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope looking toward the center of the galaxy. The image on the right is same data with the known sources subtracted. Where are the excess x-rays coming from?
One controversial hypothesis that seems to explain the data involves a type of dark matter known as WIMPs colliding with themselves to create the detected gamma-rays. Finding the nature of dark matter is one of the great quests of modern science, and this type of cosmologically pervasive matter has shown itself thus far only through gravitation.

I think so, Brain … but what if the NSA hasn’t backed up your Facebook password?
Here is what Judge Grimm allowed in his Case Management Order for the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.Here is what Local Rule 105.3 permits.
Here is what The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin did in his Second Amended Complaint.Do the math.
I also note that he’s deleting all his old tweets.
I think so, Brain … but what if Putin already wears briefs that color?
I think so, Brain … but what wine would you serve with curried Spam?
It’s amazing. Brett Kimberlin has managed to come up with a Second Amendment that I oppose.
Stacy and Dee are a pair of my favorite blogger friends, and I did enjoy seeing them a CPAC.This picture was actually taken the night before CPAC at Rinocon, a get together at Harrington’s Pub around the corner from the convention center. I had an excellent blackened tuna sandwich with an great pineapple salsa relish at the pub.
Zort! Brain … some things are so weird and disjointed that even I can’t come up with a one-liner about ‘em.
