Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Not only was Brett Kimberlin so bothered by my truthful reporting on him and his activities, he also thought the fact that I was nominated for an award for my report somehow made things worse. Here’s the TKPOTD for nine years ago today.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin finds it incredible that a group of bloggers would nominate someone for an award for coverage of TDPK’s attacks on bloggers and their First Amendment freedoms. This is from the second amended complaint for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 135-128That defendant would be me.

popcorn4bkI didn’t win. Stacy McCain won for his coverage of the Free Kate brouhaha. Now that I think about it, I wonder if TDPK is jealous because the coverage about him lost out to a story about the statutory rape of a 14-year old girl?


UPDATE—The allegation that I have attacked Kimberlin’s family has no basis in fact, nor has TDPK ever produced any evidence of such an attack. To the contrary, a close reading of this blog will show that I have been supportive of his wife and have made an effort to keep her children and his mother and siblings out of the story as best I can.

* * * * *

I’m not the only person who has written about Brett Kimberlin and his past.


Doublethink is the state of mind which allows one to believe two logically inconsistent beliefs at the same time. Matt Taibbi reports on an example over at Racket News. In testimony at a House hearing this week, Democrat witness Olivia Troye denied to North Carolina congressman Dan Bishop something she’d said in her opening statement.

Winston sank his arms to his sides and slowly refilled his lungs with air. His mind slid away into the labyrinthine world of doublethink. To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again: and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself. That was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word ‘doublethink’ involved the use of doublethink.

UPDATE—My podcast partner Stacy McCain has more about that hearing over at The Other McCain.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This Prevarication Du Jour from ten years ago today showcased on to Team Kimberlin’s sillier predictions of the direst of dire direness.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt is fantasizing that Brett Kimberlin’s frivolous RICO suit has struck fear into the hearts of the five defendants in his similarly meritless state lawsuit, and that our lawyers are no longer interested in representing us.ftrrnews201310161835ZFear? Well, not exactly in my case. I learned of the case by checking the Cabin Boy’s blog at 9 this morning. My lawyer for this morning’s hearing had stepped out of the conference room to check on something, and when she returned, I was laughing at the major stupidity of Brett Kimberlin’s action. On advice of counsel, I’ll say no more than that.

And as to the matter of having counsel to advise me, no one who is on board the current legal team has expressed any interest in leaving. A second attorney will likely be lead counsel for the RICO suit, but there’s plenty of time to sort that out.

* * * * *

It turned out that Kimberlin’s RICO Madness LOLsuit was so defective that I was able to represent myself and win. This allowed my pro bono counsel to focus on the state case Kimberlin filed.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was ten years ago today that Brett Kimberlin filed the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. lawsuit in federal court. After the complaint was amended, there were 24 defendants, and the case became known as the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit. I was one of the defendants from the beginning.

In fact, I was the first defendant that Kimberlin tried to serve. Ten years ago today, he personally handed me a copy of the complaint while I was sitting in the lobby of the Old Circuit Courthouse in Westminster waiting for a hearing related to the first peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt. Adverse parties can’t serve papers on each other, so the service was defective. I was sitting next to my lawyer. He could have handed it to her to hand to me, but …

Team Kimberlin has always maintained that requiring them to play the rules was a hypertechnicality.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Ten years ago, Twitter was actually enforcing their rules about harassment with are reasonable degree of fairness. That resulted in many of Team Kimberlin’s accounts, especially Bill Schmalfeldt’s, being shut down. Here’s the Prevarication Du Jour from ten years ago today.

* * * * *

@walkersuesblogThis account was only up for a short time on Twitter before it was suspended.

Aaron Walker isn’t suing a blogger. He is being sued by Brett Kimberlin, and so are Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and I. For a million bucks.

Kimberlin’s claims are outrageous. They are an affront to the First Amendment and to the right to legal counsel, and if we don’t defeat his attempt to use the courts to silence those who tell the truth, who will he go after next? Who else will try to use the same tactics?

You can help us defend the First Amendment. Find out how at the BomberSuesBloggers website beginning later this morning.

* * * * *

My codefendants and I took the BomberSuesBloggers site down after we won the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit. When he lost that case, he told Dave Weigel,

And tomorrow, I can file another lawsuit against them. And now I know what I need to do. It’s going to be endless lawsuits for the rest of their lives. And that’s what it ends up being.

It took his losing three more LOLsuits for Kimberlin to figure out that he shouldn’t be suing me—and several more that didn’t include me before he took a break from his anti-First-Amendment lawfare.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I wound up spending a lot of time in courtrooms with Brett Kimberlin. Most of that time was rather tedious, but the TKOPTD for nine years ago today chronicled one of the few pleasant moments, perhaps my favorite, during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit.

* * * * *

It was pretty obvious from the load of … ah … junk he gave us in discovery for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin didn’t understand the rules of evidence or how to properly structure his case. He proved both during the trial. For example, consider this question he was never able to ask of Stacy McCain because it dealt with hearsay.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So do you know what the Southern Poverty Law Center is?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection Your Honor.

THE COURT: What does the Southern Poverty Law Center have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well Mr. McCain has —

THE COURT: The Southern Poverty Law Center, what does that have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Mr. McCain is considered a neo-confederate — is one —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.


MR. KIMBERLIN: And the Southern Poverty Law Center

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Hold on a second. Counsel I appreciate you objecting to my question but I’m not going to overrule myself. That’s not something I do. So what does the Southern Poverty Law Center have to do with this case? I’m not asking you about Mr. McCain, I’m asking you about why are you asking him about the Southern Poverty Law Center?

MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m asking him the Southern Poverty Law Center is the leading, one of the leading civil rights organizations in the —

THE COURT: I understand all of that but what does it have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Because —

THE COURT: And the claim that you are making against these gentlemen?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Because Southern Poverty Law Center regularly outs racists —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: So what if they do. What does that have to do with this case? This case isn’t about racists or racism.

MR. KIMBERLIN: It’s about hate. It’s about hate. These people hate me and they do anything to destroy me.

THE COURT: Well but why are you asking this witness about the Southern Poverty Law Center? First of all he couldn’t testify as to anything they said or did because it wouldn’t be an exception to any hearsay rule. So you would never be able to get that in evidence anyway.

MR. KIMBERLIN: All right.


THE COURT: Your objection’s sustained.

Of course, TDPK was trying to paint Stacy McCain as a racist, and that’s nonsense. Furthermore, given some of the racial epithets that TDPK is on record as have said and written, it was particularly unseemly for him to be trying to tar anyone else with that brush.

Even if Stacy or I or any of our codefendants were racist, that had no bearing on whether or not what we said and wrote was true, and TDPK had to prove that our words were false. Stupid is as stupid does, and TDPK tried to bring up racism a second time.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever been identified as a member of the hate group League of the South?

THE COURT: I’m sorry, what was that, what group?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

MR. KIMBERLIN: League of the South.

THE COURT: League of the South?

MR. KIMBERLIN: It’s like an offshoot of the KKK.

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

MR. KIMBERLIN: It believes in —

THE COURT: What’s that relevant to, sir?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well he brought it up.

THE COURT: He didn’t bring up the League of the South.


THE COURT: He didn’t bring up the League of the South.

MR. KIMBERLIN: He talked about he’s not a racist.

THE COURT: Well the fact that he brought it up without objection doesn’t make it relevant. I mean what is the jury going to do with this? We’re not here about whether anybody is a racist or not, are we?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well no, but he’s tried —

MR. MCCAIN: You’re white by the way.

Never try to outcrazy Stacy McCain.

* * * * *

BTW, Judge Johnson is black, as was the jury foreman who was rolling his eyes throughout Kimberlin’s questioning of Stacy. I had trouble keeping myself from laughing.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Yesterday, we took a look at Bill Schmalfeldt’s latest unretirment. Nine years ago, Schmalfeldt was going through one of his retirements. Here’s what his (at)Parkinsonsmedia account looked like nine years ago today.Of course, I’ve never hated Bill Schmalfeldt. He’s been bothersome, sufficiently bothersome to require attention, but not worth hating.

What have I gained by reporting on Brett Kimberlin, Schmalfeldt, and the rest? The satisfaction of standing up for free speech and standing between them some of the people they’ve tried to harass.

What has it cost? A better question would be what would have been the cost not shining some light on Team Kimberlin.

As for forgetting that Brett Kimberlin exists … I’m not done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in 2012, Brett Kimberlin created a pirate-themed website called the Bloggers Offense Fund. That led to his being referred to as The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. Eleven years ago today, I posted Dread Pirates Compared–Roberts v. #BrettKimberlin.

* * * * *

The Dread Pirate Roberts, so the story goes, is a pirate of near-mythical reputation, someone feared across the seven seas for his ruthlessness and swordfighting prowess, and who is well known for taking no prisoners. Ships immediately surrender and give up their cargos rather than be captured, a fate they imagine to be certain death.

The Dread Pirate Kimberlin is more like a legend in his own mind, a pretender who wishes to be feared for his ruthlessness and legal ability and to be known for vanquishing all comers in court. Critics, he thinks, should immediately stop telling the truth about him and give up their First Amendment rights at his command.

It turns out that Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s legal acumen seems to be as fictional as Dread Pirate Roberts’ existence. And no one will surrender to Dread Pirate Kimberlin.

* * * * *

As the mockery continued, Pirate became interchangeable with Pro-Se, Performer, Protestor, Protector, Perjurer, etc., and when Kimberlin failed to pay court-ordered sanction, Dread morphed into Deadbeat.

BTW, The Deadbeat Pusher Kimberlin is still the Speedway Bomber.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in the early days of Brett Kimberlin’s lawfare campaign of brass knuckles reputation management, he attracted the attention of much larger media outfits than Hogewash!. This #BrettKimberlin Post of the Day ran eleven years ago today.

* * * * *

I wonder what it’s like to have a reputation so bad that no further damage to it is possible.

Tick, tick, tick, tick, …

* * * * *

The resurrected Gawker has taken no notice of Brett Kimberlin, but he’s still the Speedway Bomber.

Candidates and Liars and Bloggers

Larry Sinclair isn’t the first person to make a sensational claim about a political candidate. He’s also not the first person who has made such a claim and failed to offer supporting evidence. And he’s not the first such person to sue bloggers who commented on such flimsy allegations.

Sinclair made his claims against Barack Obama in 2008. He claimed that in 1999 when Obama was a member of the Illinois Legislature, Obama bought him cocaine after which he performed fellatio on Obama. He got his 15 minutes of fame on the Internet and in the tabloids, but was generally ignored by the mainstream media. He filed a suit against Obama alleging that is was a First Amendment violation for the media to “suppress” the story. That suit was quickly thrown out. He then sued three bloggers who had said that his story was a lie, acknowledging that his plan was to use that suit to subpoena Obama for a deposition under oath. That suit attracted coverage from Politico in June, 2008—

In response to his suit, a lawyer for the anonymous bloggers hired local attorneys and private investigators, and dug up details of Sinclair’s criminal record from Colorado, Florida, and South Carolina. The lawyer, Paul Levy of the nonprofit Public Citizen Litigation Group, provided his client’s filings in federal court, which are publicly available, to Politico.
. . .
He was first arrested on a larceny charge in 1981 in Denver, according to his Colorado arrest record, as filed in federal court. In 1985, he was convicted of theft and of forging a check in Florida, and sentenced to a year in jail, according to Florida records filed in federal court.

After the Florida episode, according to the records, he returned to Colorado, where he faced check fraud and credit card charges in 1986. Then, in 1987, he was convicted in Colorado on more serious forgery charges, and sentenced to 16 years in jail.

In prison, according to state records filed in federal court, Sinclair was disciplined 97 times for infractions including assault, threats, drug possession, intimidation, and verbal abuse, most recently in 1996.

The suit was dismissed in February, 2009.

BTW, Paul Alan Levy also represented the blogger Ace of Spades in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit.

Yep, Sinclair’s not the first person with a long criminal rap sheet to sue bloggers who questioned an extraordinary claim about a political candidate and drugs—and to lose badly in court.

One more thing … I have no knowledge of whether Sinclair’s claims about Obama are true or false. I will simply note that there are enough things wrong about the former president and his actions that there is no need to tell lies about him.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It’s the ninth anniversary of the start of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit. After I got to the courthouse that day, I put up a short post While We’re Waiting …

* * * * *

… for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case to be called, I thought I’d share this bit from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s answers to my interrogatories.BK_Interog_Hoge-25I couldn’t make up something like that no matter how hard I tried.

* * * * *

During discovery in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, I served a copy of Citizen K on him so he couldn’t claim not to have one.

BTW, used copies of Citizen K are available at Amazon.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Why did I start writing about Brett Kimberlin? As I noted ten years ago today, It All Started With Seth Allen.

* * * * *

Seth Allen is a left-wing blogger. We disagree on almost everything, but we agree on our distaste for Brett Kimberlin. It was Seth Allen’s blogging that first shone a light on Kimberlin’s activities with Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution US and got under Kimberlin’s skin. It was the Kimberlin v. Allen civil suit that got Aaron Walker involved with Brett Kimberlin. It was Brett Kimberlin’s attack on Aaron Walker’s First Amendment rights that brought about Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day. And it was my involvement in EBABKD that got me writing about Brett Kimberlin.

That’s a barebones outline. Stacy McCain fills in the gaps here.

* * * * *

Read all of Stacy’s post to better understand the bizarre background of The Kimberlin Saga.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin could have quietly walked away from his use of lawfare to punish bloggers who wrote truthfully about him, but he didn’t, and more people began writing about him and his clumsy brass knuckles reputation management. At this point eleven years ago, the daily coverage here at Hogewash! was still evolving. This post from eleven years ago today was called #BrettKimberlin Post of the Day.

* * * * *

The truth is not only out there, it is uncontrolled. It cannot be beaten into submission by brass knuckles PR management.

* * * * *

Indeed, after this year’s Supreme Court rejection of his frivolous appeal, he’s still the Speedway Bomber.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in 2013, Brett Kimberlin threatened the venue where a group of bloggers were having a party during CPAC. He claimed that there would be a demonstration led by a “fiery imam” to protest Aaron Walker, Lee Stranahan, Stacy McCain, and me being welcome at the party called Blogbash.

The demonstration fizzled.

The TKPOTD for ten years ago today dealt with the work to prove that Kimberlin had been present stalking us at Blogbash.

* * * * *

After a lot of old-fashioned detective work using techniques including some modern signal processing methods, a member of the Vast Hogewash Research Organization has found images of Brett Kimberlin among the stills and videos taken at and around BlogBash in March of this year. There sure are a lot of surveillance cameras in that neighborhood.

Given the threats he is supposed to have made to the venue and other possible threats from a member of Team Kimberlin to individual bloggers who attend BlogBash, the photographs showing he was present at the event will probably be of interest to law enforcement agencies investigating the matter.

* * * * *

We’ve never had to use any of the surveillance images because pictures of Blogbash published at breitbartunmasked dot com were traced to particular phone, and the person who took them admitted to doing so.

Here’s Brett Kimberlin’s impression of a fiery imam and a shot of him standing across the street from Blogbash. Oh, and the white Toyota plays a role in another Kimberlin story, but we’ll save it for another day.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Quote of the Day from eight years ago today explains the fundamental error of Brett Kimberlin’s attempt to use lawfare against bloggers—especially me.

I’m not done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

When I first began writing about Brett Kimberlin’s attempts use lawfare to silence bloggers who wrote about him, he claimed that truthfully writing about him on the Internet was harassment. Eleven years ago today, I posted You Keep Using That Word.

* * * * *

I do not think it means what you think it means, Mr. Kimberlin. Writing true things about you and publishing those writings on the Internet is not harassment. In fact, what you are doing by threatening frivolous charges against bloggers such as Aaron Walker is harassment.

That Army of Davids you expressed concern about is marching forth, but it’s not a militia. It’s a group of people who are standing up for the First Amendment. You really don’t want to meet us in court.

* * * * *

I tried to warn him.

After tangling with the likes of Aaron Walker and me, he would up losing one set of defamation claims because he couldn’t prove what we wrote and said was false and another set because a court found that his reputation was so bad he was defamation proof.

And he’s still the Speedway Bomber.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

When I first started writing about Brett Kimberlin, I was just a blogger reporting on an interesting First Amendment story happening … well, not in my back yard, but no further away from home than my daily communion to work. Kimberlin made the mistake of targeting me in his series of frivolous defamation LOLsuits. I beat him four times in a row. Here’s the TKPOTD from eight years ago today.

* * * * *

Several of us who have been the victims of Team Kimberlin’s lawfare have at one time or another offered our harassers opportunities to terminate their LOLsuits and get off scot free. I passed that point twice, in late 2013 with Brett Kimberlin when my lawyer had to file my motion to dismiss Kimberlin’s first state LOLsuit and in early 2014 when the Cabin Boy™ reneged on the mediation agreement requiring him to comply with the extension of the original peace order within hours of charges being dropped. Aaron Walker passed that point in 2012. I get the sense that many of my codefendants in cases filed by both The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin and his protégé, The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt, have joined me over the line. Also, people are losing patience with other members of Team Kimberlin as well.

I haven’t been kidding. Pushback is coming.

Stay tuned.

The English translation of that Latin sentence is “The ram has touched the wall.” It refers to a passage in Caesar’s De bello Gallico where he say that it was his custom to allow a city to peacefully surrender up until a battering ram had touched the wall. After the ram touched the wall, the city would be sacked and the survivors sold into slavery.

I’m done with them yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin filed multiple LOLsuits claiming that he had been defamed by what was really truthful reporting about him and his activities. The TKPOTD for nine years ago today dealt with the one case he won. Sorta. Kinda.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin first defamation suit was against a left-wing blogger named Seth Allen. TDPK won that case, but not on the merits. Allen didn’t respond to the suit in a timely manner, so he lost on default. At the hearing to set the amount of damages, TDPK explained the case to Judge Jordan like this—339254-p10So the judge had to look at the evidence TDPK presented and TDPK’s reputation and determine what damages to award. Kimberlin was seeking a total of $2,250,000. Here’s what the judge awarded.339254-p109res_judicata_drinking_glassSo we have a judicial finding that the value of Brett Kimberlin’s reputation is a hundred bucks (marked down from $2,250,000!). With that in place, it may be quite interesting to see how he will try to convince a court that he deserves a million bucks this time. If he should win. The Gentle Reader may want to get a Res Judicata drinking glass to hold a favorite beverage. Eating all that popcorn can leave one very thirsty.

* * * * *

Of course, the value of Kimberlin’s reputation declined precipitously as a result of his LOLsuits. Eventually, one court ruled that he was defamation proof because his reputation was so bad it was impossible to damage it.

And because the Supreme Court denied his recent frivolous petition, he’s still the Speedway Bomber.

Hate Speech

Consider those words: hate speech.

When the Left uses them, they act as if the first word hate is an adjective categorizing speech they deem improper. In reality, they mean the first word to be a verb. The phrase becomes a command. They want us to hate speech, especially speech that challenges them.

Robust, free speech challenges all of us, and comedy forces us to laugh at our own silliness. Consider this famous scene about four humorless activists from Life of Brian

Watch Eric Idle toward the end. He’s obviously trying not to burst out laughing at the absurdity of the material.

John Cleese is putting together a stage version of Life of Brian. Some actors reading the script urged that the I Want to Have Babies scene be cut, but Cleese has refused to drop it. Bravo! He can still do so here, but in other countries making a joke can now be punished as a hate crime.

I intend to continue to laugh. If that makes me a hate criminal, so be it.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was eleven years ago that Brett Kimberlin filed a false criminal complaint against Aaron Walker. I published Breaking!—Aaron Walker Arrested eleven years ago today.

* * * * *

Stacy McCain is reporting that Aaron Walker was taken into custody following the Kimberlin v. Walker hearing this morning.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE–The Other McCain reports:

Just spoke to a source who confirms that witnesses saw Walker led out of the courtroom in handcuffs. Ali Akbar, president of the National Bloggers Club, Tweets: Will know more on Aaron’s situation at 3:30/4:30pm.

UPDATE 2–Gateway Pundit has a copy of the final peace order posted.

UPDATE 3–Ali Akbar tweets:

#BrettKimberlin is planning on serving at least 5 of us in the coming days. So his allies say. Ready.

UPDATE 4–There are more posts about Brett Kimberlin and his abuse of bloggers on the HOME page. Scroll down through the past week.

UPDATE 5–An eye witness report of the hearing is posted [expired link].

UPDATE 6–Another eye witness report is here.

UPDATE 7–katgburke tweets that the Montgomery County State’s Attorney says the arrest was for violation of the peace order not the assault charge.

UPDATE 8–The Blaze, OTOH, is reporting that they were told by a court clerk that the arrest was for the assault charge. This shows how difficult it is to get correct information on a breaking story. Sit tight. Stay tuned. The truth is out there.

UPDATE 9–@AaronWorthing (that’s Aaron Walker) tweets:

I cant say more until I talk to my lawyer but… i do really need your help right now. And I appreciate your support.

The donation web site is [expired link].

UPDATE 10—Eugene Volokh has a post on Aaron Walker, Brett Kimberlin, and the Fog of Litigation. Read the whole thing, including the comments.

Of course, the charge against Aaron was eventually dropped and the underlying peace order overturned on appeal.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Today is the eleventh anniversary of Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day, a blogburst created to draw attention to Kimberlin’s lawfare against several bloggers. One of my posts that day was titled Who Is Brett Kimberlin?, and it ended with these words—

Who is Brett Kimberlin? He is a convicted felon. His record of convictions includes perjury, drug dealing, possession of explosives by a felon, impersonating a police officer, causing injury by bombing, and more. From the transcripts of the recent Maryland Circuit Court cases, it looks as if there is a prima facia case of perjury again.

Bloggers have been posting truthful information about Brett Kimberlin, and he has been responding with abusive and bogus action in the courts. It’s a shame that some honest bloggers had to suffer his abuse before the rest of us began to react. Now that we are awake, I believe that Mr. Kimberlin will regret having picked on Stacy McCain, or Seth Allen, or Aaron Walker, or Patterico, or Liberty Chick, or anyone else.

One final note. While he was serving time for the Speedway bombings, Mr. Kimberlin claimed to have sold drugs to Dan Quayle when the former VP was in school. [See 6 F.3d 789 (1993) Brett C. KIMBERLIN, Appellee, v. Michael J. QUINLAN, et al., Appellants. No. 91-5315. United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit] The DEA investigated his claims and determined that they were false. Another apparent lie.

I believe I was correct in predicting that Kimberlin would wind up regretting his cyberharassment and lawfare.
