Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the ideas that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin won’t let go of is that I have been using the National Bloggers Club to raise money for myself or that I have been one of the major funders of the National Bloggers Club or both at the same time. This exchange is from TDPK’s examination of me during the trial for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So have you ever received any money, any funds at all from the National Bloggers Club?

MR. HOGE: No.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever given money to the National Bloggers Club?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: Sustained.

MR. KIMBERLIN: No further questions.

My answer under oath to the second question would have been “No.”

popcorn4bkKimberlin’s projection of his motivations and methods on to others has made it impossible for him to see what his opponents are really doing. While I’m pleased that Hogewash! now generates enough cash flow to pay its own way, its pre-tax profit is probably less than 5 % of my adjusted gross income. TDPK misunderstands what motivates people like me, and that’s one of the reasons why he is doomed to lose at lawfare.

  1. You should come right back at Brett Kimberlin arguing the exact same facts, but, noting that you are the victim. Membership, participation or support for professional associations are legitimate means to further one’s own interests. Businesses on Main Street may join the local Chamber of Commerce for altruistic reasons, or because they calculate that the benefits derived from membership exceed the dues. Bloggers are free to join associations such as the National Blogger’s Club for purely altruistic reasons, or because they calculate the benefits they will derive exceed the dues. What motivated you to join the NBC is none of Brett Kimberlin’s business. Noting that you have no direct financial interest in the NBC is offering a defense to an accusation that is it itself indefensible. It implicitly grants a premise that should not be granted. Doing so tends to prejudice the cases of folks like Ali Akbar who may have founded the NBC with the intent of eventually being compensated for his managerial duties.

    Brett Kimberlin has constructed an elaborate narrative about the NBC that is false, malicious and tortious. That false narrative was that the Club was a “fraud” run by a “convicted felon” that was “defrauding” it donors and violating the law by “fraudulently” claiming it was a 501(c) non-profit. The one part of that narrative that was true is that Ali Akbar was once convicted of a felony. Brett Kimberlin even continued to plead it was an organization that never applied for 501(c) status after it was granted 501(c) status.

    Nor, is Brett Kimberlin’s one bullet point against the NBC convincing. Brett Kimberlin was convicted of numerous felonies on numerous occasions himself. Is he suggesting that the Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution are “frauds?”

    The attacks on the NBC were so extensive that a former employee of Brett Kimberlin sent a cease and desist letter that demanded that it not use the name “National Blogger Club,” and that it surrender all it assets to his control. The present litigation is just a continuation of that pattern, with Brett Kimberlin abusing the civil immunity of pleadings to defame it.

    His doing so has harmed the reputation of Ali Akbar, that of the National Blogger’s Club, and, as a result deprived the membership of the benefits they ought to have reasonable expected to derive. That includes you. So what if your investment in the NBC consists solely of your time.

    • Is he suggesting that the Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution are “frauds?”

      If Brett Kimberlin were the one saying it, I would actually have to revise my view that his “charities” are largely scams.

      Anyway, Brett Kimberlin hates it when people of good will unite together to defend against his lawfare and harassment campaigns.
      You know what to do.

    • I didn’t write this post to defend anything. My association with the National Bloggers Club needs no defense. Rather, the point is that TDPK is so much of a narcissist that he cannot properly understand what motivates others. That’s a fatal weakness in his lawfare.

      Well, there was that time he claimed to have taken it over and put Cabin Boy in charge of it, so…

      • And IIRC, claimed that merely getting the name to a company entitled one to all it’s bank accounts as well.
        Claiming he took it over is crazy.
        Claiming that a name somehow entitles one to assets is beyond bizarre.
