Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


RICOMadnessI’ve previously noted that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin needs to answer the points that we defendants have raised in our motions to dismiss his second amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. He needs to explain why the “facts” he has alleged in his complaint are sufficient to establish a claim upon which the court can grant relief. That explanation is due on 8 December in the form of an omnibus opposition to our motions.

Remember that at this stage of the proceeding the court is supposed to give TDPK the benefit of the doubt as to whether or not his allegations are true.

Here’s one of them—ECF 135-80OK. Let’s pretend for the sake of argument that what he says it true. So what? How could writing mean things about the Howard County State’s Attorney have injured Brett Kimberlin?

It couldn’t have caused him any injury in his business or property, so it is not basis for his RICO claim.

It doesn’t have anything to do with Patrick Frey, so it is not a basis for the civil rights claim against him.

It doesn’t involve race- or class-based discrimination against TPDK, so it is not a basis for a claim under the KKK Act.

It doesn’t have anything to do with per se, so it is not a basis for any of his state law claims of defamation, false light invasion of privacy, interference with prospective business, battery, conspiracy, or mopery with intent to lurk.

timer-blackLike so much of his complaint, nothing in that half-page of gobbledygook supports anything in his case. It’s all wasted pixels and toner. The challenge facing TDPK over the next two-and-a-half weeks is to try to salvage the elements of at least one on the causes of actions he’s alleged out of the dreck in his second amended complaint. Thus far, it seems that he’s been frittering away his time on nonsense such as the motion for a new trial in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.

Tick, tock.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has claimed that he is somehow injured by the fact that Hogewash! has a Tip Jar. For instance, in paragraph 10 of his opposition to my motion to dismiss his first amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness he wrote,ECF 29-10The “they” he refers to are Aaron Walker and I.

In order to demonstrate that Hogewash! has such a donate button that raises money to “target” TDPK, he included Exhibit D—ECF 29-ExDpopcorn4bkThe sharp-eyed Gentle Reader will note that Exhibit D is a page from Paul Lemmen’s now-defunct blog Dead Citizen’s Rights Society. I suppose TDPK chose to use a page from that blog because it did have a link button to Bomber Sues Bloggers, something that couldn’t be found at Hogewash!. TDPK offered no explanation of how a page from someone else’s blog established the content of mine.

This is typical of the muddled thinking shown in Brett Kimberlin’s court pleadings. As I’ve said before, I look forward to seeing what manner of bizarre legal “reasoning” he employs in his omnibus opposition to the motions to dismiss his second amended complaint. I suspect his exhibits will be similarly disconnected from reality.

One more thing … Feel free to annoy Brett Kimberlin by hitting the Tip Jar.

800 Rounds!


The Hill reports that the wacko who jumped the fence at the White House had 800 rounds (!!!1!!111!!!) of ammunition in his car.

It was in his car and not on his person. He didn’t have a firearm either.

If it were the sort of rifle ammo I schlepped around Viet Nam, 800 rounds would weigh about 25 pounds. Personally, I never carried more than 500 rounds (twenty-five 20-round magazines) at a time, and that required using a couple of extra bandoliers.

OTOH, if it’s the kind of .22 long rifle ammo I buy for plinking, 800 rounds is only part of a box.1000rnds800 rounds could either be a whole lot of ammo, or it could be a partially full box.

Sigh.
