Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Just before The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin sued Patrick Frey (who blogs as Patterico) as part of TDPK’s campaign of lawfare against people and organizations who published truthful information about him, Kimberlin warned Patterico that

I have filed over a hundred lawsuits and another one will be no sweat for me.

TDPK may have filed a lot of LOLsuits, but he’s lost the vast majority of them, because he’s had incompetent legal representation. It’s not that he’s had a bad run of lawyers. He’s represented himself, I suspect because no lawyer would touch any of his cases. The TKPOTD from a year ago today makes fun of a bit of incompetence in one his filings of TDPK’s appeal of the Frey v. Kimberlin RICO Remnant LOLsuit.

Here’s some more pointage, laughery, and mockification of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s informal opening brief in his appeal of the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit.

Let’s fisk his penultimate paragraph—

This case is important, not only because it involves allegations about a corrupt prosecutor who uses the power of his office to target his enemies, but also because Frey is a member of the “alt-right” and confidant of Andrew Breitbart and Steve Bannon, the latter who served in the Trump White House before being recently ousted fro his extremist conduct.

OK, a case about a corrupt prosecutor could be important. However, Judge Hazel examined the uncontested evidence (as opposed to TDPK’s spin on the meaning of that evidence) and found that Patrick Frey acted within his rights as a crime victim when he sought to have Kimberlin investigated in connection with that crime. It isn’t corrupt for a crime victim to complain to the authorities, even if he’s one of the authorities himself.

However, TDPK does nothing to demonstrate that Patterico is a member of the “alt-right” or why that would have any significance in the case. Similarly, Kimberlin has never shown that any connection between Andrew Breitbart and/or Steve Bannon on the one hand and Patrick Frey on the other increases the “importance” of his LOLsuit.

The exhibits attached to the summary judgment motions filed in the lower court, which include dozens of Breitbart emails to and from Frey, provide a very important template of how the alt-right smears people with false narratives that they amplify through their networks. It is important for the public to know that Breitbart even employs law enforcement officials such as Frey who will use the power of their office to destroy its enemies.

What’s truly important about the past five or so years of lawfare is not any imaginary alt-right smearing of Brett Kimberlin. In fact, as far as I know, neither Patrick Frey nor any other of my codefendants in the various TDPK’s LOLsuits (nor I) are aligned with the so-called alt-right. Moreover, I’d be wiling to bet folding money that, to the extent any members of the alt-right are aware of Brett Kimberlin, they regarded him as a failed leftwing scam artist.

Setting aside the lack of agreement between the pronouns and antecedent nouns in the last sentence, its underlying message seems to be a cri du coeur of frustration that Kimberlin’s use of false narratives has failed to smear his enemies. (I’ve been the victim of four such attempts, two sets of false criminal charges and a bogus peace order petition.) Kimberlin has tried to project his template on to us, but Patrick Frey, my other codefendants, and I have been successful in defending ourselves by simply telling the truth.

In the end, the Kimberlin v. Frey case is important, but not for the reasons TDPK suggests. It’s important because shutting down Kimberlin’s use of lawfare to unconstitutionally muzzle people who talk about him reinforces the protection of everyone’s First Amendment rights.

Of course, TDPK lost that appeal, and he hasn’t been putting much more effort into lawfare since that loss. But that may not mean that his legal hassles are over.
