Seven years ago today, the Great Snowpocalypse of 2016 was bearing down on Westminster. After sending the Lickspittle Broadcasting System crew home early, it wasn’t possible to get that day’s BLOGSMOKE episode finished, so I cued up this pair of Johnny Atsign episodes and got ready to shovel two feet of global warming.

I’ve found that the best way to deal with attempts at cyberbullying is to counterattack with humor. Take this Prevarication Du Jour from nine years ago today as an example.

Bill Schmalfeldt thinks he knows the contents of my dreams. It is much more likely that he is simply following his own hallucinations.WMSBroad201311071212Z

Point One: The Cabin Boy has placed himself in an indelicate position. He went and got a peace order issued against himself because he was harassing me. The fact that he did so is now a settled legal matter that is not subject to relitigation. Thus, under the dreaded principle of … wait for it … res judicata, the fact of his harassment does not have to be proven again in any civil matter between us. If I were to sue him, the fact of his tortuous behavior would be a given. The only point at issue would be the extent of the damages I have suffered.

Point Two: I don’t bother pulling the wings off flies. I zap flies with a Bug-A-Salt.bugasalt

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a bunch of legal matters to attend to this afternoon. Blogging may be slow for a while.

One of the patently false claims that Brett Kimberlin has made is that he was held as a political prisoner rather than as a convicted dope smuggler and serial bomber. Another, even more ludicrous, claim was that he had received some sort of exoneration for his crimes. If it were true, why would he have spent the past four years attacking his Speedway Bombing convictions? What would be the point of his current attempt to get the Supreme Court to review that case?

All of Team Kimberlin’ LOLsuits failed because they were never able to put together a logically consistent narrative that alleged all the elements of a tort. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today examine one fatal error in one false narrative.

* * * * *

The real caption of the RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit is Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. Hunter & Williams LLP is a large law firm, but they are not representing themselves. They have hired Williams & Connolly LLP to handle the suit.

This is footnote 9 in the H&W motion to dismiss,ECF 58-fn9

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin waited until after the statute of limitations had run before filing his complaint against the people and organization he imagines conspired against him. He didn’t allege that ManTech, PNNL, Bill Nickless, or I were part of that original conspiracy. He’s opportunistically dragged us into the case to try to have some sort of continuity to the supposed plot. Of course, if ManTech, PNNL, Mr. Nickless, and I were never part of the conspiracy, it doesn’t make sense that we acted on its behalf.

But logic has never been one of the strong points in TDPK’s LOLsuits.

* * * * *

res_judicata_mugsAnd he dragged me in after having already lost an earlier case against me in which he could have alleged all of his claims against me in the RICO 2 case, but the doctrine of res judicata precluded litigation of those claims. Further, by including me in the alleged conspiracy, the res judicata shield I enjoyed also protected those alleged co-conspirators.

Incompetent is as incompetent does.

I have no Idea how much revenue Brett Kimberlin generated from the DONATE buttons on his websites. However, based on his multiple LOLsuit claims that I’ve used Hogewash! to trick the Gentle Readers in to giving me vast sums of money, I do know that it really gets under Kimberlin’s skin if you hit my Tip Jar. I’m also sure he feels the same way when folks click on my podcasting partner Stacy McCain’s Big Yellow Button.

The Circuit Court in Montgomery County let the Kimberlin v. Walker, et. al. LOLsuit get all the way to a trial, but most of his later state and federal cases failed to survive motions to dismiss. One did make it as far as a summary judgment in the defendant’s favor, but two were killed off via sua sponte dismissals by a judge who had learned his lesson about Kimberlin in previous cases. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today looked at one of the fatal flaws in the RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.

* * * * *

Here’s another example of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s inability to keep his lies straight. First, take a look at this paragraph from his opposition to the U. S. Chamber of Commerce’s motion to dismiss the Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.ECF 67-p17Now, take a look at paragraphs 57 and 58 in his Complaint.ECF 1-57-58

Those two paragraphs describe things that I allegedly did, and that paragraph from the opposition says that those supposed acts were done for the advancement of the mythical RICO conspiracy. That would make me a member. However, according to the Complaint, I’m not.ECF 1-C-VI

“[W]hen a complaint contains inconsistent and self-contradictory statements, it fails to state a claim.”  Hosack v. Utopian Wireless Corp., Case No. 11-CV-00420-DKC, ECF No. 15 (D.Md. 2011) at 12.

popcorn4bkTDPK is lucky that his nonsense about paragraphs 57 and 58 is in that opposition. Since it isn’t within the four corners of the Complaint itself, the Court can ignore it and the resulting contradiction. Of course, there are still plenty of fatal defects in the Complaint, but I don’t need to educate the midget about all of them. At least, not yet.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

The biggest flaw in the RICO 2 case was including me at all. Because he could have made all the new claims against me as part of the first LOLsuit that he lost, he was barred from raising them against me by the legal principle of res judicata. Further, by claiming that I was a member of a conspiracy, that bar extended not only to me but also to my alleged co-conspirators.

Game over.

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.

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.

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.
