Op-Critical was the house band that Brett Kimberlin fronted for Justice Through Music Project. Some time ago, the opcritcal dot com web site went defunct. However, it the domain is now being hosted on the same offshore server as most of the other Kimberlin-related domains, but there’s no public website.

Loomer, Jones, and Pushaw

I’ve been on the road today (why is the lane discipline so bad on I-81?), so I’ve missed the Twittering by Rebekah Jones about Laura Loomer and Christina Pushaw. When I got off the road, I found this in my Twitter Notifications:

Because I haven’t seen the tweets, I won’t comment yet, except to say that I have met and interacted with Ms. Pushaw, Ms. Loomer, and Ms. Jones. I can summarize my impressions of them by paraphrasing the intro of a cartoon feature—one of them’s a genius, the other two are insane.

Dark Side of the Moon

Craters_at_the_Moon_s_south_poleBoth the far side and near side of the Moon receive sunlight during a month. Still, Pink Floyd fans may be cheered to know that there are parts of the Moon that never see the Sun. There is a dark side of the Moon. The Moon’s axis has a tilt of 1.5º which causes the bottoms of some craters to be in permanent shadow.

This picture was assembled from images taken during summertime in the Moon’s southern hemisphere by the Advanced Moon Imaging Experiment on ESA’s SMART-1 spacecraft and shows a crater-riddled region around the lunar south pole. It is made up of around 40 individual images taken between December 2005 and March 2006, and covers an area of about 500 x 150 km.

Seven years ago, Brett Kimberlin was experiencing pushback in the form of the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with one of the procedural filings in that case.

* * * * *

Yesterday morning, I filed what is known as a Rule 2-504.2 statement with the court in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. All the parties to the case were supposed to have filed one by close of business yesterday so that the magistrate who is presiding over the pretrial conference next Friday can prepare for that meeting.

Rule 2-504.2 lists topics that should be covered in the statement depending on which party is providing the information. In my statement I listed the facts I intend to use to prove my case, suggested simplifications and limitations of issues, detailed the damages I’m claiming and the relief I’m seeking, listed of documents I plan to offer as evidence, and identified my prospective witnesses.

The pretrial conference is scheduled for 10:30 Friday morning. The scheduling orders says:

All interested parties to a case … shall personally be in attendance at the pretrial conference. Failure to do so will result in the continuance of the pretrial conference and sanctions, including attorney’s fees.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Here’s the list of witnesses I included in my Rule 2-504.2 filing.

A Busy Week in the Real World

Most of the time I’ve been awake this week, I’ve been working on preparation for or the actual testing of a major subassembly of the control system for a robot, and most of that work has been in the basement laboratory our team calls “the Dungeon.” Our lab isn’t there for any reason related to security; it’s simply the leftover space no one else would take. This afternoon, the widget passed the last test necessary to qualify it for integration into the system.

I haven’t had much time to blog this week, and my blogging will be sparse over the long weekend because I’ll be traveling to and from the Hoge family reunion. However, I hope to be able to pick up my blogging pace next week.

A Vortex On Uranus

Radio astronomers have used microwave observations to spot the first polar cyclone on Uranus, seen here as a light-colored dot to the right of center in each image of the planet. The images use microwave wavelengths (K, Ka, and Q from left to right). Different color are used for each. The findings confirm that all planets with substantial atmospheres in our solar system show signs of a vortex around their poles. This true of the gas giants and the rocky planets.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One the dumber stunts Brett Kimberlin over the past decade was his LOLsuit against Senators McConnell and Grassley about their refusal to move the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court to a vote on the Senate floor. The Legal News Du Jour from seven years ago today took note of the Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s impatience with the court’s treatment of his complaint.

* * * * *

It seems that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is growing impatient with the law’s delay.

After all, his lawfare is important!


* * * * *

Eventually, Judge Hazel dismissed the case sua sponte (on his own initiative) because Kimberlin lacked standing to bring it.

Quote of the Day

If physical power be the fountain of law, then law and force are synonymous terms. Or, perhaps, rather, law would be the result of a combination of will and force; of will, united with a physical power sufficient to compel obedience to it, but not necessarily having any moral character whatever.

—Lysander Spooner

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Today is the eleventh anniversary of Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day, a blogburst created to draw attention to Kimberlin’s lawfare against several bloggers. One of my posts that day was titled Who Is Brett Kimberlin?, and it ended with these words—

Who is Brett Kimberlin? He is a convicted felon. His record of convictions includes perjury, drug dealing, possession of explosives by a felon, impersonating a police officer, causing injury by bombing, and more. From the transcripts of the recent Maryland Circuit Court cases, it looks as if there is a prima facia case of perjury again.

Bloggers have been posting truthful information about Brett Kimberlin, and he has been responding with abusive and bogus action in the courts. It’s a shame that some honest bloggers had to suffer his abuse before the rest of us began to react. Now that we are awake, I believe that Mr. Kimberlin will regret having picked on Stacy McCain, or Seth Allen, or Aaron Walker, or Patterico, or Liberty Chick, or anyone else.

One final note. While he was serving time for the Speedway bombings, Mr. Kimberlin claimed to have sold drugs to Dan Quayle when the former VP was in school. [See 6 F.3d 789 (1993) Brett C. KIMBERLIN, Appellee, v. Michael J. QUINLAN, et al., Appellants. No. 91-5315. United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit] The DEA investigated his claims and determined that they were false. Another apparent lie.

I believe I was correct in predicting that Kimberlin would wind up regretting his cyberharassment and lawfare.

The TKPOTD for nine years ago today took a look at false narratives about false narratives and the resulting lack of credibility.

* * * * *

One of the bogus allegations in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Madness is that the defendants were a racketeering enterprise that engaged in wire fraud. This is from his first amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. lawsuit.ECF 2-126As I pointed out in my motion to dismiss, …ECF 5-3MoneyTalksThis is not to say that there aren’t money raising schemes on the Interwebz that have false narratives behind them. For example, an unscrupulous individual might attempt to raise funds for a nonexistent legal battle. Even if no money were raised, such a fraudulent solicitation might be a crime in some circumstances.

The Gentle Reader should be wary of Internet scams.

Today is the eleventh anniversary of the first post about Brett Kimberlin here at Hogewash!.

* * * * *

Fellow blogger and Maryland resident Stacy McCain has had to move his family out of the state because of threats related to blogging about Brett Kimberlin. He is not the only blogger suffering abuse from Kimberlin.

Mr. Kimberlin was unwise in choosing to pick a fight with the blogosphere. He is likely to find that, while we don’t always agree with one another, we have each other’s backs when the freedom of the Internet is threatened. Mr. Kimberlin and those who have supported him (I’m looking at you, Ms. Streisand) have bitten off more than they can chew. The pushback is just beginning.

UPDATE–The McCain family is having a ton of unforeseen expenses because of their sudden move. I just hit his tip jar. Why don’t you?

UPDATE 2–Expect more, a lot more, about this on Friday.

Friday, 25 May, 2013, was Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day which turned the blogosphere’s spotlight on Kimberlin. He’s never been successful in plasteringr over his past or hiding his present activities. He’s still the Speedway Bomber, a confessed drug smuggler, and a convicted perjurer.

Oh, and it’s still a good idea to hit Stacy’s tip jar.
