Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit is scheduled to go to trial at 9:30 this morning in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. When you cut through all the bullshit in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s complaint, what the suit boils down to is this—Brett Kimberlin haz sad because a bunch of mean bloggers said truthful things about him and wouldn’t shut up when he said so.

His suit is 100-%-pure, unadulterated anti-First-Amendment shutuppery. TDPK will get his day (or two) in court. He’ll have his chance to convince a judge and jury that it’s defamatory to write accurately about his past, to report truthfully about his present activities, or to express an opinion about him based on what was learned in that reporting. He will have to prove that what we wrote was false and that either we knew it was false or we wrote with a reckless disregard for the truth. He will have to present evidence to that effect, and he doesn’t have any—which is just the beginning of the problems TDPK faces.

I don’t expect the process to be pleasant, but I do expect that my codefendants and I will come out of it as the winners.

Pray for justice.

  1. Do you plan on going camping after the trial ends tomorrow? It’s the only reason you’d end up in a tent.

    • The big tent at the circus is very appealing, and the circus clowns are often very terrifying. However, this case is different – the impotent clown posse.

  2. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

    (Philippians 4:6-7)

    Thy Will be done… for His Purpose and His Kingdom.


  3. May the LORD (YHWH) bless you and guard you
    יְבָרֶכְךָ יהוה, וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ(“Yebhārēkh-khā Adhōnāy weyishmerēkhā …)
    May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you
    יָאֵר יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וִיחֻנֶּךָּ(“Yāʾēr Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā wiḥunnékkā …)
    May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace
    יִשָּׂא יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם(“Yissā Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā wiyāsēm lekhā shālōm.”)

    The Aaronic blessing given at the conclusion of Jewish services.

    I will pray for you and all the defendants. Shalom.

  4. I’ve been thinking about TDPK’s strategy as of late… it seems he is trying to tug on the heart strings of folk by trying to make this about his daughters. I can’t help but think that seems to be a ploy to inflame the passions of folks by bringing forward testimony on non-party’s to the case. He isn’t suing on their behalf, and the damages have to be to him personally, not to his family. From a legal perspective, this raises the issue of relevance. I wonder if Ostronic will make a motion in limine.

  5. “Judge me, oh God, and distinguish my cause from the nation that is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.” Psalm 42 or 43 (depends on edition)

    God bless and protect you all.

  6. Good luck today, Mr. Hoge. I certainly hope justice wins out today. And take your personal security very seriously, as you are dealing with the Speedway Bomber here.

  7. God bless you and all the defendants. Hopefully this mess gets tossed today and the judge finally does something to rein the little terrorist in.

  8. Psalm 118:
    [1] Alleluja. ALEPH. Beati immaculati in via, qui ambulant in lege Domini. [2] Beati qui scrutantur testimonia ejus, in toto corde exquirunt eum. [3] Non enim qui operantur iniquitatem in viis ejus ambulaverunt. [4] Tu mandasti mandata tua custodiri nimis. [5] Utinam dirigantur viae meae ad custodiendas justificationes tuas!

    [6] Tunc non confundar, cum perspexero in omnibus mandatis tuis. [7] Confitebor tibi in directione cordis, in eo quod didici judicia justitiae tuae. [8] Justificationes tuas custodiam; non me derelinquas usquequaque. [9] BETH. In quo corrigit adolescentior viam suam? in custodiendo sermones tuos. [10] In toto corde meo exquisivi te; ne repellas me a mandatis tuis.

    [11] In corde meo abscondi eloquia tua, ut non peccem tibi. [12] Benedictus es, Domine; doce me justificationes tuas. [13] In labiis meis pronuntiavi omnia judicia oris tui. [14] In via testimoniorum tuorum delectatus sum, sicut in omnibus divitiis. [15] In mandatis tuis exercebor, et considerabo vias tuas.

    [16] In justificationibus tuis meditabor: non obliviscar sermones tuos. [17] GHIMEL. Retribue servo tuo, vivifica me, et custodiam sermones tuos. [18] Revela oculos meos, et considerabo mirabilia de lege tua. [19] Incola ego sum in terra, non abscondas a me mandata tua. [20] Concupivit anima mea desiderare justificationes tuas in omni tempore.

    [21] Increpasti superbos; maledicti qui declinant a mandatis tuis. [22] Aufer a me opprobrium et contemptum, quia testimonia tua exquisivi. [23] Etenim sederunt principes, et adversum me loquebantur; servus autem tuus exercebatur in justificationibus tuis. [24] Nam et testimonia tua meditatio mea est; et consilium meum justificationes tuae. [25] DALETH. Adhaesit pavimento anima mea; vivifica me secundum verbum tuum.

  9. Good luck, Mr. Hoge! We in Japan are one day ahead of the U.S., so I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow and I can’t give you any info on the outcome. But you are fighting the good fight and are a righteous warrior, so I expect things will turn out the right way. There are universal truths about human nature, and they always win out in the end!
