A Clarification

I’m the defendant in two vexatious lawsuits filed by Brett Kimberlin. The first was filed in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland, and is styled Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. It alleges defamation, malicious prosecution, harassment, stalking, conspiracy, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress and seeks a million dollars in damages. The second was filed in U. S. District Court and is properly styled Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. It alleges that I am part of a racketeering conspiracy with the National Bloggers Club, Ali Akbar, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Aaron Walker, Lee Stranahan, Stacy McCain, James O’Keefe, Mandy Nagy, “Breitbart.com,” DB Capitol Strategies, The Franklin Center, Simon & Schuster, Kimberlin Unmasked, Mercury Radio Arts, The Blaze, Ace of Spades, and RedState to do bad things to Kimberlin. (The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is seeking to add more defendants to the suit.) The second lawsuit also seeks a million bucks, but the TDPK has filed a motion to change that to “$2,000.000.”

popcorn4bkI have tried to be as open as possible about the progress of both of these suits, but I can’t always report everything as soon as I know it. Frankly, the defense strategies for both suits rely in part on TDPK’s incompetence, and reporting some things too soon risks giving Kimberlin a heads up about something he’s screwed up. I believe it’s in my interest to wait until a deadline has passed before pointing and laughing.

TDPK made a huge mistake by suing me and my codefendants in the state case. He compounded his error and got in way over his head with the RICO Madness. The incompetence he is displaying is mind-boggling. He is slowly but surely losing, and, while it can be annoying to have to deal with the day-to-day details of these cases, watching TDPK self-destruct has its rewards.

So, Gentle Reader, please be patient. The details will come out.

Stay tuned.

  1. Saying “thank you” before wasn’t enough:

    Thank you!

    Anyway, a historical comment. Snowballing errors are a pattern for Brett Kimberlin.

    For around 4 years, he got way with the error of his inappropriate Humbert Humbert relationship with a girl aged 10-14 during the period.

    Finally he got “busted” when the girl’s grandma, Julia Scyphers, saw all the things going on and helped take major steps to putting a stop to it.

    Now, at this point, a better class of pedophile would have tucked tail and ran away in red-faced shame. Not Kimberlin. He first showed up in the rental office managing an apartment rented by Julia Scyphers which Brett had keys to, since Julia had tried to get the locks changed. He made false reports to try to get the tenants kicked out (it failed). This didn’t help so in a fit of rage, he had his drug trafficking partner William Bowman drive over to Julia Scypher’s home one night and shoot her dead.

    A better criminal than Brett Kimberlin might have stopped here. Instead, he had THE Brett Kimberlin signature idea: he set off a series of bombs in Speedway, Indiana, to distract the police from their murder investigation. Needless to say, this resulted in a swarm of Indianapolis and state police as well as FBI and ATF agents. Ironically, the FBI agent who arrested Kimberlin wasn’t part of that swarm; he was looking into Kimberlin’s huge number of forgeries.

    A better man than Kimberlin might have felt guilt at this point, but instead Kimberlin took some of his remaining Tovex explosives and bomb paraphernalia, and a rifle, and planted them at Julia Scypher’s older daughter’s house and when the feds (inevitably) questioned him about the Scypher-related events, he suggested they look at the older daughter’s house. The evidence surrounding this obvious attempt at framing others for his crimes (one of at least 3 attempts) helped greatly in getting him convicted.

    Sometimes it’s really awful that Kimberlin is so much like he was then. But regarding the snowball of errors, there is a silver lining that this key Brett Kimberlin trait is still there.

  2. Mr. Hoge,
    Much as I enjoy the updates, it is most important that you and your defendants win. We’ll wait for the movie, if necessary. I think John Lithgow should play you.

  3. Just as a suggestion, to help ensure the movie is a Summer BlockBuster™, it would be advisable to relocate Mr. Hoge and the court scenes to a more tropical climate, which coincidentally happens to have other legal cases involving bikini-clad women (Rule 5). I leave such plans and script writing in the capable hands of your co-defendants (Mr. Other Mccain), and return to my Idea Zone…

  4. With a fat suit, I could do a more than passable Bill Schmalfeldt…sadly, genes will tell, and we bear more than a passing resemblance.

    Besides, the lines are easy:


    I WANT IT ALL!!!!! DIE IN A FIRE!!!!!

    Scary good, eh? Call my agent.


    • You’re so different in how you present to the world, any physical resemblance would likely be missed by most. Besides, CBBS’s features are obscured by his parade-float-bloat.

    • No disrespect, but I think it would be more entertaining to have Mike Myers reprise/tweak his role as Fat B@stard

    • Since he believes that he has speared his white whale, I suspect he was much further ahead when he started this mess than he is now. Then, he had some hope. Now, he has nearly none. Then, all he needed to do is amend his complaint to include the name of person behind Kimberlin Unmasked. Now, he’ll have to explain to a judge why he isn’t crying, “Wolf,” yet again. Before, discovery was ahead of him. Now, it is nearly behind him.

      I am doubly looking forward to reading the motion to dismiss of the gentlemen Kimberlin accuses of being you. I’m not sure of the exact words that will be used, but, the tone probably will be one of righteous indignation.

  5. ” The second lawsuit also seeks a million bucks, but the TDPK has filed a motion to change that to “$2,000.000.””

    Interesting. Did he file the motion, or file leave to file that motion? And wouldn’t that be an amendment, which the judge said would not be allowed – even with a motion, even with leave for a motion?

    Is Judge Grimm on vacation or what?

      • Yep it does. And seems that it is a carry over from the FAC. So, really, he is asking for more bites at the apple.

        Again, I think that this may appear to be simple incompetence, but I think it is a grand strategy. Death by a thousand paper cuts.

  6. It’ll be interesting to see who gets thrown under the bus first. I say Ali, Mccain and Porno Stranahan will throw Hoggy under the bus faster than Hoggy Jr can suck down a chili dog.

      • Gee, would that count as contact under the PO? }8)

        Or else it’s someone who can imitate Bill really well, in which case, congrats, and stop it. It’s too early in the day for that sort of thing.

      • More than likely Bill since he’s referencing Mr. Hoge’s (late?) father’s ability to eat a hot dog. Which by Schmalfeldtian paradox is circularly accurate. I imagine (against hope) that WJJHoge Jr. is not very capable of eating a hot dog in any amount of time, and thus the prediction is accurate in that the co-defendants will be a long time waiting to throw Mr. Hoge under the bus.

        Mr. Hoge, my condolences if my imagination is accurate. If my hope is correct then long life and health to Mr. H Jr.

        That paradox notwithstanding, I’m not sure how anyone can throw anyone under the bus. What would the testimony be? “Yes, John Hoge said those things in his blog. Yes, those things happen to be the truth, but, but; UNDER THE BUS!!!”

      • Heh. Actual contact. Remember my comment on another thread about data that is collected on every visitor? WordPress places a cookie on the machine (even when you just read the blog posts). You can change IP, use TOR, no matterb, when you come back, that cookie is read and the user is known … by data on their own machine that does not rely on IP but is totally unique and identifiable.
        GOTCHA BILL!

    • Pretending to be a good boy on Twitter for Karoli is getting difficult, isn’t it Willy?

      Not to worry, it’s almost time for you to DANCE!

      • Speaking of….anyone else notice that he has added #topprog #p2 #tlot to every tweet now? Guess humiliating himself by begging and pleading for help wasn’t enough, now he wants all the other lefties on twitter to witness his failures too.

      • What are you and @guntotingteabag still doing on Twitter. Weren’t you warned off, OR ELSE?? Chris, I mean Jeremy, I mean Robin, oh….whatever?

      • Yep. Totally unique. With certain tools, you can see the manufacturer, maker of the computer that that isw installed in, purchaser of said computer, date of sale, where sold, price paid and with other tools, every IP adderess that MAC address has been associated with. No use lying about “I never” or “not me!”. These are provable deceptions. Your online activities, even with an anonymizer or TOR is accessibile, trackable and provable once your MAC address is known. It just takes money (for tools) and time. Both of which are available by 3rd parties. AND not browser dependent.

      • Bets: It’s because their puny brains cannot process facts as reality … are they ever in for a big surprise!

    • This rank speculation is based on two false premises. The first is that Ali, McCain or Stranahan will ever be in a position where they need “to throw someone under the bus.” Brett Kimberlin is losing a trio of lawsuits, and is losing badly. The three gentlemen need merely wait while a phalanx of real lawyers crush Kimberlin’s feeble attempts to play one. The second is that Ali, McCain or Stranahan could “throw John Hoge under the bus” if they felt so inclined. John Hoge has absolutely nothing to hide.

  7. The New Odd Couple, starring Humbert Humbert, and Butthurt Butthurt.
    Coming to a jail cell near you soon?

      • Good, Tao, but how about this?

        AS I FORESAW

        In all seriousness, Mr. Hoge, I’d pre-order that book today if it were to become available for pre-order with an unspecified release date.

        I would also pre-order a similar book by RSM, and one by AW, and maybe ones by a few other defendants, to get the full inside view when it’s all over. I do hope some of the defendants are working on books to be released when the cases are all over, including appeals. 🙂

        Could be a way to generate defense funds…

      • Leroy –

  8. The Streisand Effect may be alive and well. I donated to Chris Muir of Day by Day Cartoon at a level that earned me sponsorship of a strip. Well, I was recently contacted for my topic. I suggested to him that the business with Kimberlin be highlighted. Keep an eye open.
