Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The most bizarre bit of nonsense in all of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s ranting in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness is his spinning of a fable concerning Team Themis. The beginnings of the Team Themis non-story go back to before my time as a blogger, but Stacy Mc Cain has written some about it. This piece about Barrett Brown and ‘Team Themis’ provides a reasonable summary of what probably happened in a skirmish between the U. S. Chamber of Commerce and the nascent Team Kimberlin.

Here’s the money quote.

The reference is to U.S. Chamber Watch, a wholly owned project of Brett Kimberlin’s Velvet Revolution! Of course, at that point, I’d never heard of Brett Kimberlin or Velvet Revolution, but it’s kind of weird how, over the course of several months in 2011 and 2012, these divergent threads came together. In September 2011, Neal Rauhauser e-mailed Barrett Brown’s colleague Gregg Housh to coordinate “Occupy” activism on behalf of Velvet Revolution. And in September 2012, Rauhauser as “Carlito2000″ got Barrett Brown agitated about Jennifer Emick.

So while Barrett Brown is being celebrated as a journalistic hero by the New York Times and Rolling Stone, I’m being sued by the convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin for “DEFAMATION, MALICIOUS PROSECUTION, HARASSMENT, STALKING, CONSPIRACY, INVASION OF PRIVACY AND INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS” and yet — checking my e-mail inbox again — no, neither David Carr of the New York Times nor Alexander Zaitchik of Rolling Stone seems to find that story interesting.

Just a coincidence, I’m sure . . .

Sure, Stacy. Just a coincidence.

  1. Seems that RSM has lost interest in this. Granted he is in the throes of writing a book, but he did not respond to the omnibus with even his usual ” what those guys said.”


    • I’ve noticed that too, Earl. The reporting and insight we’re getting on things is excellent, but I do miss RSM’s take on things.


  2. The best part of the Team Themis fable in the court document was the way he told the story, and then made no connection between Themis and the the people he was suing. Almost as if he was throwing whatever crud he could just in case some of it stuck.


    • guy’s mind is easily distracted by the junior high school bus that pulls up to the basement twice a day


  3. I’m seeing a lot of scurrying behind the scenes by team pedoworship. Now a major top top top top music artist has found out they have been using him to raise funds….

    That has been directly communicated, also despite initial denials – there is some more activity in LEO in Maryland about the audio rape tapes for sale.

    Is there a connection between the pedo and the porner? Is this a direct cause and effect? – we shall wait for the ever slow wheels of injustice to start the shrieking sounds of beginning movement.


    • Several of us are calling daily BTW for the county SA to take notice – every time a senior LEO gets on the line and while on the phone searches the web and checks the activity – they are looking for certain behavior – they need to be prodded weekly – once they see the behavior though they will most likely take some preliminary steps – which – since a simple show cause hearing elicits massive doses of fear – this kind of heat is totally different – noting that the threat to Eric’s daughters and to family members IS EXACTLY what they are looking for….


    • “Make intentional infliction of emotional distress against the disabled a criminal offense.”

      But it’s ok to intentionally inflict emotional distress against the non-disabled? What would push something over the line from civil to criminal infractions? For example – If someone, let’s call them, “Honorable Decent Person,” asks another who we’ll call, “Deranged cyberstalker,” to stop contacting them, but the deranged cyberstalker ignores the request, would that be a criminal infraction?

      Or how about if the Honorable Decent Person gets so much distress and/or annoyance from the deranged cyberstalker that Honorable Decent Person asks for and is granted a court order forbidding the deranged cyberstalker’s contacts, but the deranged cyberstalker ignores a court order to stop and not only continues to contact Honest Decent Person, but contacts Honest Decent Person literally hundreds of times. Would that push it over the line to criminal instead of civil?

      What if, unlike the deranged cyberstalker, the Honest Decent Person has an important job, a loving family, friends, hobbies, and a commercial website that suffer because of the constant contacts in violation of a court order?

      What if the deranged cyberstalker drags Honest Decent Person’s family into their ravings which are often disgusting and obscene; and deranged cyberstalker even photoshops pornographic and/or disgusting images of Honest Decent Person and his family, although Honest Decent Person has never spoken ill of anyone related to the deranged cyberstalker, or caricatured their photos? Would that take it over the line to criminal instead of civil?

      Bottom line – a certain deranged cyberstalker in Elkridge should hope and pray that his wish isn’t granted; and that if somehow it is, that’s it’s not retroactive.
