During their campaign of lawfare, Team Kimberlin routinely made threats that their enemies would suffer the direst of dire direness. My response posted nine years ago to day was typical: Go Ahead, Make My Day.

* * * * *

Brietbart Unmasked, who was put on notice to stop contacting me on 15 February, and who continues to do so in violation of Md. Criminal Laws §3-803 and §3-805, sent me the following tweet this evening:BU201309232320Z

Fine. Charge me. I will have a Sixth Amendment right to confront my accuser. That means that if @BreitbartUnmask won’t reveal his identity, the charges get dropped, and if he does reveal his identity, he can rest assured that I will file harassment charges for his continued contact with me.

Perhaps he shouldn’t be getting his legal advice from Acme.

A man’s got to know his limitations.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the things I’ve noticed about Brett Kimberlin’s court filings is that they usually read like easily disproved fiction. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today debunked one such claim in his RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin may be in for a rough time with his RICO claim in his vexatious Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. lawsuit. He has made allegations of online fundraising by the defendants the underpinning of his claim.ECF 135-165He made a similar claim in his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance suit in state court. When he tried to get evidence concerning such fundraising into the record, he wound up with these exchanges. This—

MR. KIMBERLIN: Uh-huh. So you’ve raised a lot of money on that site.

MR. AKBAR: No.

MR. KIMBERLIN: You haven’t?

MR. AKBAR: Nope.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Bomber Sues Bloggers has never raised any money?

MR. AKBAR: No. I do a lot of fund raising for charitable activities, homeless people, the hungry, free speech —

MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m asking you a simple question. Have —

MR. AKBAR: Well, what —

MR. KIMBERLIN: — you ever raised any money on —

MR. AKBAR: In the context of what I do for a living, no.

—and this—

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever received any money, any funds at all, from the National Blogger’s Club?

MR. HOGE: No.

Thus, there is nothing in the record of that trial concerning online fundraising by my codefendants or me that supports TDPK’s similar allegations in the state case. BKvAW2013SAC-8That lack of evidence is part of what led Judge Johnson to render a directed verdict in our favor. That verdict is a final judicial finding that TDPK’s allegations are false. As such, they are not subject to relitigation under the doctrine of res judicata. That means that the RICO claim in the federal lawsuit should be dismissed.

orvilleredenbacherIt will be interesting to see what crackpot legal theory TDPK will try to use to save his foundering lawsuit when he files his omnibus answer to all the motions to dismiss in the RICO Madness. His opposition is due on 15 October. There should be plenty of time to stock up on popcorn.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

AFAIK, Kimberlin’s only currently active case is petition for a writ of certiorari seeking to have the Supreme Court review the Seventh Circuit’s denial of his attempt to have his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside. We’ll see how his narrative about those trials plays with the Supremes.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I was the first of several people who were able to hold Bill Schmalfeldt accountable for his online harassment. However, he didn’t obey the first peace order issued against him, continuing to contact me through (at)mentions on Twitter. For brief period during the first peace order, he managed to tweet about me rather than to me. Nine years ago today, I optimistically thought Perhaps He’s Learning.

* * * * *

Consider this Twitter exchange. (H/T, @rsmccain)

TS201309211153ZNote that the Cabin Boy was able to delete the @wjjhoge in Aaron Worthing’s tweet before replying. It looks as if that email from the State’s Attorney’s Office hit home.

Good.

* * * * *

Of course, I was overly optimistic. It took multiple restraining orders in several states and his losing several LOLsuits for him to begin to learn his lesson.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the usual suspects, Rights Behind Bars, has filed an amicus brief in support of Brett Kimberlin’s petition for a writ of certiorari in his appeal of the Seventh Circuit’s denial of his attempt to use a writ of coram noibis to attack his Speedway Bomber convictions.

This brief notes there are differences among the federal circuits in how the writ of coram nobis is handled. The Supremes might take the case in order to settle the law among the circuits.

The government’s reply brief is due not later than 11 October.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has sued me for defamation four times, and he lost all four for those LOLsuits. One of his complaints was that I’ve called him a terrorist. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today took a look at how he was referred to as a terrorist long before I had ever written about him.

* * * * *

One of the the things The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin whines about in his Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. LOLsuit is how he feels defamed because he’s been called a terrorist. He would have the court believe that being called a terrorist after 15 October, 2010, portrayed him in a false light.

If the Gentle Reader does a Google search on >”brett kimberlin” + terrorist< that is time limited to before 2010, the top results will look something like this—Pre2010

That first result is the Wikipedia “Kimberlin” page which contains a link to the article about Brett Kimberlin. While the “Kimberlin” page was created in 2008, the article about TDPK wasn’t created until 2012. Gasp! Wikipedia refers to Kimberlin as a terrorist! <sarc>It must be part of the conspiracy!</sarc>

The next hit is a Baltimore Sun article from 1996 reviewing Mark Singer’s book Citizen K. It refers to Kimberlin as a terrorist. The third hit is a piece from Daily Kos that refers to Kimberlin as a bomber “who terrorized the city of Speedway, Indiana …” Neither the BS nor Daily Kos qualify as rightwing nut job publications.

And there are plenty more references to Kimberlin’s history as a bomber/terrorist/criminal. His reputation was out there on the Internet well before 2010 and, certainly, well before I began blogging in 2011.

Whiner.

* * * * *

In the second state case he filed against me, the court found that his reputation was so poor as a perjurer, drug smuggler, and serial bomber was such that it was impossible to defame him.

And now he’s asking the Supreme Court for relief from his Speedway Bombing conviction.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has lost every court case he’s filed over the past decade. The TKPOTD for five years ago today took a look at the one of the easily refuted false claims he made.

* * * * *

One of the silliest claims that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has made in his various LOLsuits is that making truthful statements about him based on his own writings is defamatory. For example, in his second amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) RICO Retread LOLsuit, TDPK alleged this—The statement that Kimberlin has filed over 100 lawsuits is based on Kimberlin’s own words contained in an email he sent to Patrick Frey. The opinion that they were frivolous is based on the fact that he lost almost all of them. And as a blogger on the receiving in of TDPK’s lawfare, I agree that his attacks were vicious.

I’ve seen it suggested in some quarters that Patterico wasn’t telling the truth about receiving such an email from Kimberlin. However, in his order granting summary judgment in Patrick Frey’s favor in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit, Judge Hazel found this—By my reckoning, TDPK’s filed another dozen or so civil actions in the past five years. Perhaps the next time he threatens someone he should claim to have filed “over a hundred-and-twelve lawsuits,” but given the way he’s been beaten over the past five years, he may not want to claim that his pro se lawfare is no sweat.

* * * * *

AFAIK, Kimberlin has only one case pending, his petition seeking the Supreme Court’s review of the Seventh Circuits denial of an attempt to have some of his Speedway Bomber convictions set aside. Kimberlin has managed to get lawyer to represent him pro bono. We’ll see how the case proceeds.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Yes, Gentle Reader, I’ve really been writing about Brett Kimberlin and his associates and enablers for over a decade now. As this post from ten years ago today notes, Perhaps I Am A Fool.

* * * * *

It has been suggested to me that I am being foolish by continuing to follow up on what I am now calling the continuing saga of Dread Pirate Kimberlin. I admit that possibility.

OTOH, I view him and his clown posse as a menace and wish to see him and them brought to justice. To that end, I try to share some of the information that I have with the Gentle Readers of this blog. Here are some things I’d like you to know.

1. I can’t always publish everything I know. I get some information off-the-record. While that information helps me put things in perspective and develop other leads, I can’t use it directly. Gentle Reader, you can also assume that I am cooperating with various people and agencies with an interest in Team Kimberlin. Thus, some information may need to be delayed or kept confidential in order to prevent evasive action by the bad guys.

2. I don’t feed trolls. I have received troll tweets and blog comments. If you’re trolling, save your breath. I’ll block your comments here and ignore you on Twitter.

3. I’m often stubborn to the point of pigheadedness. So, Gentle Reader, you can expect that I’ll stick with it. Get some popcorn, settle back, and stay tuned.

Oh, one more thing … I used to refer to Brett Kimberlin as Lord Voldemort (He Who Must Not Be Named Under Penalty of Peace Order) and his followers as the Death Eater Wannbes. He and they got demoted in July when Judge Rupp denied the Peace Order being sought against Aaron Walker. The only thing Mr. Kimberlin really has in common with the Dark Lord is that they are both losers. I’m now calling him Dread Pirate Kimberlin in reference to his piracy-themed Bloggers Offense Team website. (No, I won’t link to it.) Brett Kimberlin deserves to be made a laughingstock. At the same time, I recognize that, though he is a coward, he can be a dangerous coward. I keep my eyes open.

* * * * *

OTOH, perhaps Brett Kimberlin was a fool for trying to taking on the blogosphere in general and me in particular.

After ten years, a couple of points in the post need updating.

First, while I don’t feed trolls, but I do laugh at them.

Second, when Kimberlin began defaulting on court order sanction payments, he was downgraded from The Dread Pirate Kimberlin to The Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin.

I’m not through with him yet.

You know you’re winning when all the other side has is insults, and nine years ago today, I was able to post that This is All They’ve Got.

* * * * *

Since the peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt went into effect, the number of anonymous threatening or harassing comments to this blog has exploded. I’ve received well over 100 in less than three months. It’s fairly obvious that they are sent from members of Team Kimberlin. Some of them are not as anonymous as the sender hoped.

I’ve posted a few of them in the past. Most of them have been like this one that came in at 2:45 ET this afternoon.TK201309101845Z

If I hadn’t used the word in an earlier post today, I’d say, “Meh.”

However, over the last month or so, more of them have become outrageously obscene. This is one of the least offensive of that bunch.TK201308312147ZMany are much more vile.

Vile. Deranged. And, as Stacy McCain points out, evil. It may be a while before these thugs are brought to justice, but justice will win out in the end.

My podcasting partner Dianna Deeley has a new post up at her blog. Based on her 25+ years of experience in the not-for-profit world, Dianna’s consulting firm offers practical, early-stage advice for individuals and non-profits who want to operate effectively. I’ve relied on her to investigate not-for-profit organization.

Her post tells the story of how one “charitable” grift took advance of well-meaning donors.

Before long, there was a fundraising campaign to refurbish this property, plus lots of people coming in and donating lots of labor, including removing carpet and refinishing floors, fairly extensive interior repairs, and painting. Other nonprofits and civic organizations donated materials, including appliances and furnishings. Then there was a campaign to raise funds for the roof…and then…

Poof! 

The house was sold! Social media went silent! The website had no more posts! The offices were apparently empty! What of the women relying upon this charity for services? Where could one find the plausible and engaging face of this organization?

Where did the money go?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has been in court for the past few years seeking to have some of his Speedway Bombing convictions over turned. Kimberlin case is based on asking for a writ of coram nobis to allow review of “errors” made during his trials. The TKPOTD for nine years ago today published a synopsis of his rap sheet.

* * * * *

Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt keeps referring to Brett Kimberlin’s “alleged” crimes. Here’s the list of federal crimes of which Brett Kimberlin has been convicted, some on multiple counts.

Perjury
Conspiracy to Possess Marijuana
Intent to Distribute Marijuana.
Possession and Illegal use of Department of Defense Insignia
Illegal use of the Seal of the President of the United States
Impersonation of a Federal Officer.
Receipt of explosives by a convicted felon
Possession of an Unregistered Destructive Device
Unlawful Manufacturing of a Destructive Device
Malicious Damage by Means of Explosives
Malicious Damage by Means of Explosives Involving Personal Injury.

The aggregate sentence for all of those charges (except the earlier perjury rap) was over 51 years. Kimberlin was paroled, had his parole revoked, and paroled a second time in 2001. In 2006 he was released from supervision by the Parole Commission. His sentence will finally expire in 2030.

* * * * *

Because there is a difference in how different courts of appeals treat the writ of coram nobis, it’s possible the Supreme Court might take the case in order to clarify the law. However …

Even if the Supreme Court were to grant Kimberlin’s petition for a writ of certiorari and were to decide in his favor and order the case reopened, and even if the lower courts wound up granting Kimberlin the relief he is seeking, he will still be a convicted felon, and none of his rights will be restored.

His perjury conviction will still stand.

He pleaded guilty to the drug charges, so they will still stand.

The convictions relating to his arrest for attempting to have false federal IDs printed will still stand.

Stay tuned.

Rebekah Jones Criminal Trial Date Set

(H/T, @MaxNordau) In 2020, Rebekah Jones was fired from her job at the Florida Department of Health. She allegedly gained unauthorized access to the Department’s computer systems after she was fired which resulted in her being charged with a felony Offense Against Users of Computers, Computer System, Computer Networks, and Electronic Devices. Her trial has been set for 23 January, 2023.Last month, Jones won the Democrat nomination for Congress in the 1st District in Florida. It will be interesting to see how this affects that race.

Brett Kimberlin is the subject of an authorized biography called Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin. This post from nine years ago today provided an Amazon link to purchase a copy.

* * * * *

CitizenKBack in the ’90s, before Brett Kimberlin’s parole was revoked, Mark Singer extensively investigated Brett Kimberlin’s background and his claim to have sold marijuana to Dan Quayle. Citizen K is the saga of a master drug smuggler, convicted bomber, suspected murderer, jailhouse lawyer, and media manipulator, whose story about supplying marijuana to a future vice president is only the beginning.

Click here to buy the book through Amazon.

UPDATE—Mmmmm. Popcorn.

* * * * *

When Kimberlin was served with discovery interrogatories related to the book during one of his LOLsuits, Kimberlin claimed that he didn’t have a copy, so I bought one and sent it to him with discovery interrogatories in another case.

Oh, and here’s an interesting twist. The first copy of Citizen K I acquire was a gift from one of the Gentle Readers who had bought it at a used bookstore. It was marked as having been the property of the public library in Bloomington, Indiana.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the reason the Brett Kimberlin failed in his campaign of pro se lawfare was his inability to see the possible consequences of his court filings. The TKPOTD for six years ago dealt with one of the admissions against interest he made in motion. Take a look at paragraph 7 in his motion.

* * * * *

The Kimberlins have filed this motion in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit seeking to depose Aaron Walker’s wife before the trial.

It will be interesting to see how the court rules on this during the 30 September motions hearing.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin says he wants to have copies of the pictures Mrs. Walker took of him on 1 March, 2013, while he was stalking her. I don’t have any of them, but I do have this picture of him cruising the parking lot of the Howard County District Courthouse one week later on the date of a peace order hearing against Bill Schmalfeldt. That hearing was continued for two weeks. Schmalfeldt was out of town because of his mother’s death.20130308-152751.jpgTPDK drove around the lot, apparently looking for a particular vehicle, and left after circling the lot twice. He returned a half-hour later (just before the hearing time), circled the lot again, and left again. I believe that he was looking for the Walker’s SUV with Virginia tags. The second time he cruised the lot, he stopped in front of the car in which Aaron was sitting (a borrowed sedan with Maryland plates) without recognizing Aaron. It’s likely the Kimberlin was trying to serve a motion on Aaron, because one was mailed to him from the Elliott City post office that afternoon. The handwriting on the envelope appeared to be Kimberlin’s. Schmalfeldt was out of town and could not have mailed it.

* * * * *

I saved several of the cartoons the Cockroach (Vigilans Vindex) posted as comments here, and the one for the original post sums up Kimberlin’s mistake.Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

We’ve been following the progress of Brett Kimberlin’s attempt to have some of his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside. His latest effort failed in the U.S. District Court in Indianapolis and the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Last month, he filed a petition for a Writ of Certiorari with the Supreme Court, and the government’s response was due on 6 September. The government asked for an extension of time to respond until 11 October, and the Court granted that request yesterday.

On the Bus? Or Under It?

Just the News is reporting that former Washington Field Office Special Agent in Charge Tim Thibault was escorted out of FBI headquarters on Friday.

There have been reports of whistleblower allegations that Thibault showed political bias in his handling of politically sensitive investigations. He is supposed to have hidden the partisan nature of evidence from FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland to secure their approval to open an investigation into former President Donald Trump. That investigation culminated in the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate earlier this month.

Uh, huh.

Gentle Reader, do you believe that Wray and Garland weren’t aware of the political sensitivity of a criminal investigation of former president?

Me neither.

BTW, Senator Grassley’s office confirms Thibault has been removed from his post and reassigned to an unspecified position.

UPDATE—The NY Post reports that Thibault has resigned from the FBI.

Hmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Attention to detail has never been one of Team Kimberlin’s strong suits. This post about how One of These Things is Not Like The Others dealt with Bill Schmalfeldt’s copyright problem resulting from one of his cut-and-paste books.

* * * * *

comparisonTwo of the items shown above are from genuine U. S. District Court documents and are in the public domain. One is from a computer file used to create a document filed with a court, but it is not the court document itself. It is not in the public domain.

Can you tell which is which?

Hint: Look for the Clerk’s acceptance stamps and the PACER legends across the the top of the real court documents.

UPDATE—Here’s the significance of the above lesson. If a copyrighted work is included in a court paper, the court document may be reproduced with the copyrighted material included. However, the copyrighted material is not in the public domain, so it can only reproduced without infringement in the context of the public record. (Aside: The entire first issue of Action Comics was reproduced in a court filing. Guess what kind of lawsuit one would face if one published that material outside of the context of the related court filing without getting the permission of the copyright holder. You don’t tug on Superman’s cape.)

The Cabin Boy™ has included material from Hogewash! in his latest book that does not appear to be from what he filed with the court but from copies of the computer file(s) used create what he filed. If that be the case, he has again infringed multiple copyrights.

One of the Gentle Readers left this as a comment to the original post—

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Neal Rauhauser is one of the weirder members of Team Kimberlin. The Gentle Reader may find the links in Another Review of #NealRauhauser’s Fiction interesting. The post appeared nice years ago today.

* * * * *

Stacy McCain has posted his take on Neal Rauhauser’s latest bit of fiction.

Read the whole thing.

* * * * *

Rauhauser was working with Kimberlin at Justice Though Music Project in 2012. Thus, he became First Mate Neal Rauhauser. Rauhauser stopped coming to court with Kimberlin after the 5 July, 2012, hearing that quashed the bogus peace order issued against Aaron Walker. The fact that court bailiffs were being copies of Rauhauser’s outstanding warrants may have had something to do with that change.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

In May, 2012, I started writing about Brett Kimberlin when he managed to get a judge to issue a patently unconstitutional gag order against Aaron Walker. Not long thereafter, I also began writing about Kimberlin’s associates and enablers. Nine years ago today, I posted this explaining Why Bother with #BillSchmalfeldt?

* * * * *

That’s a good question.

He has 44 followers on Twitter. His Klout score is 10. He has vanishingly small traffic at his websites. And, yet, he has a devoted group of followers who wish to see him removed from the Internet. (For the record, I’m not a member of that group; as far as I’m concerned, he can stay on the web if he behaves himself.)

I deal with the Cabin Boy because he is a sore spot on the backside of the Internet that has afflicted my friends and me. Things have worked out so that I’m the one who has been in the right position to bring some justice his way. It’s sorta/kinda sad to watch Schmalfeldt ruin his own life, but it is satisfying to participate in building a firewall between him and the decent folks he had harassed.

popcorn4bkCabin Boy Bill acts as if he has the sort of bully pulpit that would allow him to set the agenda. I think not. He can foam at the mouth and froth at his keyboard, but he will be dealt with by my colleagues and me when we choose and in the manner we choose.

Losers don’t get to be choosers.

<snark>Oh, one more thing … given that I made reference to Schmalfeldt’s lack of success on the Internet, he will probably suggest that I wish to compare bits of our anatomy. I really don’t care about his bodily parts, and all of mine seem to be working just fine at the moment.</snark>

The LinkedIn page for a guy  “[g]etting paid for talking on the radio Coffeyville, Kansas,” no longer exists. Meanwhile, my podcasting partners and I completed another episode of The Other Podcast last night.

Bullies

Fuzzy Slippers has a post over at Legal Insurrection headlined Trans Activists Shout Down 80-year-old Woman Who Spoke Out Against Biological Male In Women’s Changing Room. “Julie Jaman was banned from Port Townsend’s Mountain View Pool after complaining about a biological male ogling young girls in the changing room. Jaman was showering when she saw the man staring at little girls undressing. She said that she felt her and the children’s safety was threatened. When she later tried to give a speech about the incident, she was heckled. Trans activists ripped down the suffragette flags behind her and tried to sabotage her microphone.

I’m so old I remember when men who picked on women were considered bullies, and it may be that incidents such as this are beginning to remind others. The appearance of the #LGBDropTheT could be a sign that a sufficiently broad swath of the public have had enough and that women will have their safe space protected again.

One can hope.
