After listening to sources such as the BBC and NPR talk about how tight the polls were in the Israeli elections, it was a pleasant surprise to wake up this morning and find stories like this and this.
57F Osborne’s 13 March article about me over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) says that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin “is expected to file an appeal for a de novo hearing (new trial) on Monday and possibly criminal charges as well.” The de novo trial would be for the peace order he failed to get against me last week.
Just after 11 pm last night, I received an email from my lawyer informing me that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a notice of appeal for his loss in the peace order case. As of this writing, there is no indication that any criminal charges are pending.
Breitbart Unmasked has published an article with Matt Osborne’s byline that states that I committed perjury during the Kimberlin peace order hearing last Friday. The facts debunking that claim have been laid out here and here. There’s one more bit of information that the Gentle Reader should know.
On 29 August, 2013, Breitbart Unmasked published an article with a byline of “Xenophon” titled LEE STRANAHAN AND AARON WALKER SMEAR A TEENAGER’S FAMILY AND TRY TO SNUFF OUT HER CAREER. Osborne has admitted that he used that byline at BU during that period. That article contains the following block quote from Twitter:Given that the “proof” of my alleged perjury was the “fact” that I has sent the “Brett Kimberlin uses news story …” tweet that Lee Stranahan actually sent and given that Osborne included the original proper version in his earlier BU article, it is reasonable to conclude that his erroneous reporting is the result of a reckless disregard for the truth.
I demand retraction of and apology for all false statements published by Breitbart Unmasked concerning me and any matters related to the Kimberlin peace order.
UPDATE—The 29 August, 2013, Breitbart Unmasked article has been taken down from the BU site, but it is available on the Wayback Machine. Additionally, the entire BU site has been routinely backed up offline, and I have the original html code for the post in hand.
Over at Breitbart Unmasked, Bunny Boy is running a copy of some tweets that Kimberlin introduced into evidence during today’s hearing. They supposedly prove that I posted a comment on an article at the Montgomery County Gazette.Because I denied making such a comment and could not authenticate the tweet as mine, Bunny Boy is shilling Kimberlin’s story that I perjured myself today.
I couldn’t authenticate the tweet as mine, because it isn’t. It’s a retweet. The original tweet (and I presume the comment at the Gazette) was by Lee Stranahan.I took me all of two minutes to find that original tweet via Google.
Did I mention that Brett Kimberlin is a liar?
UPDATE—I’m turning off comments to prevent inadvertent education of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin.

In what passes for investigative journalism among the incompetent, Bunny Boy of Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) has written that Paul Lemmen is not ordained because he checked with the Orthodox Church in America, and they aren’t aware of Fr. Paul’s ordination.
There are many varieties of Orthodox communions: Greek, Syrian, Coptic, Russian, and Armenian to name a few. Fr. Lemmen’s ordination was not in one of the Russian communions. Since the OCA is a self-governing part of the Russian Orthodox Church, they aren’t aware of his ordination. They also don’t have any records of the ordinations of my cousin’s husband (who is an Episcopal priest) or of Jorge Mario Bergoglio (Pope Francis).
