Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin’s lawfare campaigns were generally waged on two front, one associated with The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin, the other with The Dreadful Pro-Se Bill Schmalfeldt. The TKPOTD from five years ago today was a summary of Schmalfeldt’s failures as of that date.

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt has spent quite a bit of time explaining to his reader about how he was going to drag various out-of-state defendants into court, first in Maryland and now in Wisconsin. How’s that worked out for him?

Not so well.

He wasn’t able to drag Stacy McCain, Nancy Gilly, Paul Lemmen, Bettina Haper, Chris Heather, Kyle Kieran, Kimberly Dykes, Stephen Shekio, or Paul Krendler into Maryland for LOLsuit I. He couldn’t even get me, a Maryland resident, into court for that one because he threw in the towel after only two days.

I was able to get him into court and and an alternate dispute resolution meeting for LOLsuit II. That case settled with my giving him nothing of the $3,000,000 counterclaim he filed and his agreeing to take down his material that infringed my copyrights.

He didn’t get to drag Eric Johnson, Paul Krendler, or Howard Earl into Maryland for LOLsuit III after the case was dismissed because he filed it in the wrong court.

He didn’t get to drag the same three out-of-state defendants into Maryland for LOLsuit IV because he failed to establish personal jurisdiction over them. That resulted in the case being thrown out against me because he had brought it in the wrong court again.

He didn’t get to drag Patrick Grady, Scott Hinckley, David Edgren, Roy Schmalfeldt, “Grace,” “Ashterah,” or Howard Earl into Maryland with LOLsuit V. He ran away rather than press his case.

Now, he thinks he’s going to drag folks to Wisconsin for LOLsuit VI. I seriously doubt that Patrick Grady, Eric Johnson, Sarah Palmer, Dianna Deely, the William G. Irwin Charitable Foundation, Nancy Gilly, Techno Jinxx, MJ, Roy Schmalfeldt, Vigilant Vindex, Pablo, Neal. N. Bob, The Other Latin F*cker, Perry Mason, Howard Earl, A.B., Tao, Jane, Grace, Dr_Mike, Katie Scarlet, Rob Crawford, the 13th Duke of Wymborne, Kobyashi [sic] Maru, AJ Fornicarious Hoc, JeffM, Gus Bailey, or Colonel Victor Trollpoker will ever have to see the inside of a Wisconsin courtroom on the Cabin Boy’s™ terms.

popcorn4bkOTOH, the Cabin Boy’s™ presence has been required by Scott Hinckley in Massachusetts and Lynn Thomas in Illinois, and his failures to appear resulted in courts ruling against him. He’s making noises about going to North Carolina next week, but I wouldn’t bet on it. Cowardly cowards gotta cower.

Meanwhile, he has his pro se fantasies to indulge. It will be interesting to see how he reacts when [redacted].

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ also filed LOLsuits VII and VIII.

In VII he was unable to drag a defendant from Illinois into an Illinois courtroom—although he did have to drag himself to a court imposed conference with a lawyer appointed by the court. After a quick review the lawyer filed to dismiss that case.

In LOLsuit VIII the Cabin Boy was unable to drag me and my out-of-state codefendant to South Carolina when that case was dismissed for improper venue.

All in all, a perfect record—he’s batting 0.000.

Six years ago today, I received a series of comments to Hogewash! that were clearly from Team Kimberlin for the purpose of harassment. Here’s one of ’em.So how did that threat work out for them?

Bill Schmalfeldt has gone through dozens of websites, free podcasting trials, Twitter accounts, and radio gigs, but the Cabin Boy’s™ web presence continues to shrink. The same is generally true for 57F Matt Osborne, Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson, and, especially, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin.

Meanwhile, Hogewash! continues to muddle along as a minor league blog in the right side of the blogosphere.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Other than his host of failed LOLsuits, the single most ineffective aspect of Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has probably been the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread website. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with one opportunity Matt Osborne’s inept story telling provided for some pointage, laughery, and mockification.

* * * * *

Xenophon asks a silly and misleading question over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it).BU20140114b

This is one of those “have you stopped beating your wife” questions. The defendants in the frivolous and vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit won’t be abandoning any so-called “blog court” strategy because we have never employed one. What we have done is point out some of the false allegations in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s complaint and some of mind-bogglingly stupid procedural errors he has made. Here at Hogewash!, I’ve tried to do that with a bit of humor and a great deal of sarcasm. The one thing none of the defendants has done is to tip our hand to show what our actual defense strategy might be. We’ll let the court try the case—if it manages to get past the preliminary stages.

Oh, and to save Xenophon from having to ask, yes, I still beat my wife—at Trivial Pursuits. But she beats me at Scrabble.

* * * * *

You know, Kimberlin never has found out what my defense strategies would have been, because none the LOLsuits he filed against got to the point where I had to put on a defense. Most of the first suit was dismissed on summary judgment, and the judge stopped the trail on the remainder when Kimberlin failed to present a case showing that I had made any false statement about him. All the rest of the suits were dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.

He’s actually very, very lucky that I never had to make my case before a jury.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’ve mentioned more than once that Brett Kimberlin is a liar. The TKPOTD from six years ago today looked at one of the times he got caught.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin is a liar, and a surprisingly bad one, especially considering the amount of practice he’s had. He has made claims in his various court filings in his lawsuits against me and offered exhibits in those filings that refute his own allegations.

When he was on trial for the Speedway Bombings, his lawyers had him take a series of lie detector tests as part of their preparation. Leonard Harrelson was the examiner, and he was interviewed by Mark Singer for Kimberlin’s authorized biography Citizen K. The following begins at the bottom of page 324.

“We talked, I formulated the questions, and I ran two or three different tests. His tests indicated that he failed every relevant question. He bragged to me about flying drugs and outrunning government planes and dumping drugs when they were chasing him. And that was the truth.

“He made a lot of admissions about a lot of things. … He flunked the test every way in the word with regard to why I was testing him. …

“I think Kimberlin’s the type of person that if you talked to him face-to-face you wouldn’t even need a polygraph. But he was a good subject for the polygraph because he reacted  much better when he lied than some people do. There are certain types of individuals that do not react to a large extent, and he did; he reacted to a very large extent.”

I’ve had several face-to-face exchanges with Brett Kimberlin, mostly when he has been foolish enough to call me as a witness for his side of a court case. Mr. Harrelson was right. You can see the mendacity in Kimberlin’s eyes.

* * * * *

Falsus in unum falsus in omnibus. That Latin can loosely be translated as “lying liars gotta lie.”

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin is a clumsy and incompetent liar as is demonstrated in the TKPOTD from four years ago today.

* * * * *

The Kimberlins have asked Judge Hecker to sanction me because I informed someone on their list of witnesses that they might call him to testify. I’ve opposed their motion.

My opposition speaks for itself, so I don’t intend to make any further substantive comment on the matter until after the court has ruled on the Kimberlins’ motion.

* * * * *

Of course, the court ruled in my favor and denied Kimberlin’s motion.

Many of my favorite posts are titled Qapla’. This one is from four years ago today.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted my motion for sanctions against Brett Kimberlin.

The Gentle Reader should note that the three-judge panel found that Kimberlin’s appeal was frivolous.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin is a perjurer. He was convicted of perjury before he turned 20, and he has continued to make false statements under oath. In January, 2013, I ran a series of post dealing with the lies he told in court during the the early days of his lawfare campaign. The post from eight years ago today was Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Perjury 10.

* * * * *

On 29 June, 2012, there was a hearing in Montgomery County District Court for a peace order petition that TDPK had filed against one John Norton. Brett Kimberlin was in his usual form. While I don’t have an official transcript of the hearing, Aaron Walker has transcribed portions from audio that he obtained from the court.

TDPK claimed that Mr. Norton had been lurking in the bushes in front of the Kimberlin residence. In the transcript below K is Brett Kimberlin and J is the judge. TDPK said that he was going to pick up his 8 year old daughter from a neighbor’s house—

K: And so I walked out of my door, to go pick her up, and I see a man lurking behind the bushes in the corner of my property and I was kind of taken aback by it. But I kept walking toward my car because I had to pick my daughter up.

J: Now was that in the general direction of where the man was in the bushes or in the opposite?

K: The man was facing the road, the— to the left of the— on the left side of my house there’s some bushes towards the road and my car was right in front of my house.

Lurking in the bushes? As I type this, I’m looking at the Google Street View image of the Kimberlin residence. Looking from the street, there’s a small shrub that appears to actually be on the property next door by the neighbor’s driveway. It’s “on the left” as seen from that point of view. There’s also a even smaller shrub at the opposite front corner of the Kimberlin lot. It appears to be about as tall as the fire hydrant in front of it. I’m not sure how one would lurk in those bushes.

K: And so I turn around, obviously I was concerned about my daughter. You know, I didn’t know if anything had happened to her, I was scared, so I turned around and I went to the neighbor’s house. She was right there in front of the house. I put her in the car and Mr. Norton is driving away, and so I—

J: Have you ever seen this man before?

K: Never seen him before in my life.

J: Every seen the car before?

K: Never seen the car before.

J: Alright.

K: So I followed the car, and went around the corner, and there was a stop light. I pull up behind him and he’s… again it’s a convertible, and he reaches around with a camera, again, and takes more pictures of me. I gave him the finger, I admit it, you know, I don’t like a guy coming out in front of my house taking pictures of me and my kid.

He’s concerned that this lurker might be dangerous, so he puts his daughter in the car and chases after the guy.

Uh, huh.

So what was Mr. Norton’s side of the story? In the transcript below N is John Norton and L is his lawyer.

L: Did there come a time when you ended up coming into contact with Mr. Kimberlin?

N: Not any physical contact, but he did chase me down in his car, the picture he showed, shows him behind me, flipping me off. I don’t know why he chose to chase me down. I was not on his property, I have stopped my car on [Kimberlin’s street name omitted].

L: What brings you on [Kimberlin’s street]?

N: It is a bail out route on my commute.

L: And where is your commute?

N: I commute between Bethesda, Maryland, and Fairfax, Virginia.

Chased him down?

L: And on June… what’s the date here? June 15, is it? June 15, you said, what brought your attention— what caused you to take out your phone and take a picture of the car behind you?

N: When I was on River Road, I saw what turned out to be Mr. Kimberlin’s car driving erratically, cutting in and out of lanes, trying to catch up to me, tailgating me. We reached the stoplight at River and Burdette, he pulled up… you can see how close in the picture, how close it was. He… he pulled out a pen and [unintelligible] furiously scribbingly as if he wanted me to know he was writing something down, he was revving the engine in his car, and for me, I thought, “some crazy person is chasing me down, I need some evidence, I need some protection.” So I picked up my phone and shot about seven seconds of video, from which the picture of him flipping me off was taken as a framegrab.

TDPK claimed that he was freaked out when Seth Allen reposted the picture of him flipping off Mr. Norton.

K: The picture of my car, that was posted on the internet by the client of the man that I had the peace order against. So I get kind of freaked out that, you know, this guy is somehow related to the guy who I had a peace order against, Mr. Walker.

Note that Mr. Allen could not have posted the photo before or during TDPK’s chase of Mr. Norton. In any case, Mr. Norton had no association with either Mr. Allen or Mr. Walker.

L: Now, are you associated with Aaron Walker, any [sic]?

N: I am not.

L: Okay. And, did you go to his house on June 15, to take pictures, get out of your car and take pictures?

N: I did not go to Mr. Kimberlin’s house. I did not get out of my car. I did not take pictures at his house.

L: Alright. And what caused you to post the picture of Mr. Kimberlin flipping you off on the internet?

N: Well, first of all, for protection to make sure that it was publicized, that someone had chased me down and was flipping me off. And also, honestly, I thought it was kind of funny.

We have two different stories. One is told by a reputable citizen with nothing more that traffic tickets on his record, and that story is corroborated, at least in part, by other evidence. The other is told by a convicted felon, one of who’s crimes is perjury, and that story is contradicted by other evidence. Who would you believe?

So we have the records of nine appearances before judges in Montgomery County, and each appearance has something hinky about TDPK’s testimony. Some of his tales are, perhaps, merely flakey. Some are clearly false, but the State’s Attorney has given TDPK a free pass.

John McCarthy has not yet answered the letter I sent him asking about his decisions to refrain from prosecuting Brett Kimberlin for perjury. Fine. I’m not one of his constituents. Maybe he will have to explain his decision in 2014 when he’s up for reelection.

UPDATE–Spelling error corrected. @&#$ing autocorrect.

* * * * *

Lying liars gotta lie.

BTW, in 2016, a District Court Commission found probable cause to charge Kimberlin with perjury for statements made in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, but once again, the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office dropped the charge.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The members of Team Kimberlin are so ofter either lying or completely ignorant fo the facts that it’s worth noting when they get something right. Seven years ago today, William Ferguson got One Right and One Wrong.

* * * * *

Believe it or not, Bosun Billy Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson got one correct today.wilsb8_201401092003ZIt turns out that the margins The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has been using on his RICO Madness filings do not conform to Local Rule 102.2.b.

All documents filed with the Court shall not exceed 8 1/2” x 11”, with a top margin of at least 1 1/2” and left-hand margin of 1” and a right-hand margin of 1/2”.

OTOH, VOSF has been running his keyboard about Hogewash! divulging his soooper sekrit email address. By that he means his email address that pops up in multiple places on Google or Bing searches of his name, the email address publicly associated with, for example, his FargoTube account or his postings on alt.atheism.moderated.

Hey! He’s batting 0.500. That’s much better than usual.

* * * * *

The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin is a liar. Telling lies is how he wound up being convicted of perjury before he turned 20. One would think that with so many decades of practice, he’d get better at it, but the lies he tells are easily seen through. The TKPOD for four years ago today dealt with such a lie, one he told in a filing in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

* * * * *

One of the few interrogatories that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has answered (but not completely) was my request for this list of witnesses for the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. One of his prospective witnesses is Judge Mason. Because I had information leading me to believe that Judge Mason was unaware that TDPK was proposing to call him as a witness, I sent the judge a letter informing him of the possibly that he might be called to testify.

TDPK has panicked as a result.

I don’t plan to have any substantive public comment on this motion other than court filings until after the court has ruled on it.

* * * * *

Here’s the TL/DR for the Gentle Readers who don’t want to wade through Kimberlin’s filing and the exhibits. Kimberlin claimed that I has asked Judge Mason “to take some kind of judicial action agains the Defendants,” i.e., Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin, but he made the mistake of attaching my letter to the judge. In the letter I state,

I know better than to think that this suggests any kind of cooperation between you and Mr. Kimberlin. I simply inform you so that you may determine for yourself what steps, if any, you need to take to address this.

I didn’t suggest that he take any action, judicial or otherwise, and my letter proves that Kimberlin’s claim was false.

BTW, that wasn’t the only lie Kimberlin told in the filing. He stated that Judge Mason had found me to be an incredible witness in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. case. Judge Mason made no such finding. He did, however, state in the record that because Kimberlin had lied during his testimony, he would allow Aaron Walker to present evidence that had be previously excluded from that case.

In any event, Kimberlin’s motion to sanction me was denied.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of Brett Kimberlin’s online fund raising efforts has been to ask for support for his “election protection” activities. Meanwhile, his associate have been involved in fraudulent campaign activities. Two years ago today, Hogewash! was asking Is Matt Osborne Really a Russian Bot?

* * * * *

Well, well, well, … Matt Osborne got his name in the papers, the New York Times, no less.

The Gentle Reader may have noticed a story running around the Internet recently about fake “Russian-style” Facebook campaigning that targeted an American election. That election was a recent Alabama senatorial election, and the victimized candidate was Roy Moore. One of the fake campaigns was called Dry Alabama, and it was run by Democrats.

The Dry Alabama Facebook page, which appeared to be run by teetotaler Baptists, had a blunt message: Alcohol is the devil’s work, and the state should ban it entirely. The related Twitter feed exhorted, “Pray for Roy Moore.” The actual purpose of the social media campaign was to paint Moore and his supporters as religious wackos.

Matt Osborne, a veteran progressive activist who worked on the project, said he hoped that such deceptive tactics would someday be banned from American politics. But in the meantime, he said, he believes that Republicans are using such trickery and that Democrats cannot unilaterally give it up.

“If you don’t do it, you’re fighting with one hand tied behind your back,” said Mr. Osborne, a writer and consultant who lives outside Florence, Ala. “You have a moral imperative to do this — to do whatever it takes.”

Osborne’s buddies at Protect Our Elections were unavailable for comment.

* * * * *

Oh, and one of the things that Kimberlin consistently campaigned against was the use of electronic voting machine—until this election cycle.

Hmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the byproducts of the abundance of lies told by Team Kimberlin has been a recurring feature here at Hogewash! called Prevarication Du Jour. Some days, the lies are so plentiful that I post a Bonus Prevarication Du Jour. He’s one from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Baghdad Blob has told a couple of whoppers this morning in reaction to today’s Prevarication Du Jour. Let’s examine them in turn.db201401061241ZI have secured a peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt. Reporting suspected violations of that order to the appropriate authorities is a lawful act. Similarly, suing someone who has already been adjudicated as a harasser for harassment would not only be legal, it would about as close to a slam dunk as one can find in a courtroom. The Cabin Boy claimed in his original tweet that he never threatened me, but in the tweet above he admits he did.

Threatening to accuse someone of a crime in an attempt to persuade him to not do something he legally may do is extortion.

In his original tweet, the Cabin Boy also claimed that he never harassed me. During the last court hearing, I submitted three obscene pictures that Schmalfeldt published as evidence of harassment.

db201401061304ZI’ll discuss just one of the images that I submitted as evidence of harassment. I won’t reproduce any part of it because the judge sealed that evidence. It is a picture of two men engaging in homosexual sex. My face had been put on the person on the receiving end of anal sex. I have not complained about having my face photoshopped into every picture that Schmalfeldt ever published—some were actually clever—but I have complained about being grafted into porn. The judge looked at the pictures entered into evidence, the events surrounding their publication, the web pages containing them, and the Cabin Boy’s comments about them, and he found that their publication was harassment.

BaghdadBlob20140105The picture on the left was inspired by Aaron Walker referring to Bill Schmalfeldt as “Baghdad Blob.” Schmalfeldt’s face has been grafted on to a widened version of the body of Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf (aka Baghdad Bob). That’s the image Schmalfeldt complains about. Schmalfeldt wants to equate a parody image that ties his track record of making false predictions of legal victories with a notorious propagandist to hard-core porn. The Gentle Reader may draw his own conclusion as to who is the hypocrite.

* * * * *

Gentle Reader, could it be that having dozen restraining orders in five states is having some impact on the Cabin Boy’s™ prospects? Perhaps actions really do have consequences.

The thing that got Team Kimberlin riled up and engaged in lawfare and cyberharassment was having truthful information published about them on the Internet. Their responses to the truth invariably involved lies. There lying became so common that this blog began a recurring feature called Prevarication Du Jour. Here’s the PDJ from seven years ago today.

* * * * *

Perhaps he is relying on the appearance that he has so few assets as to be judgment proof. Perhaps he is relying on a diminished mental capacity defense. Whatever his motivation, Bill Schmalfeldt tells lies.db201401041234ZThat tweet accuses Aaron Walker and me of stealing money. Theft is a crime. If Bill Schmalfeldt has evidence that I have stolen money, he should give that information to law enforcement. If he doesn’t, he would be well advised to publish a retraction.

Very soon.

* * * * *

I find it amusing that at Schmalfeldt did in fact try use a diminished mental capacity defense in a criminal case, but he withdrew it when the judge told him that she would have to send him off for a ten-day psych evaluation if he entered such a plea.

Every so often, I pause and offer an explanation of how Brett Kimberlin came to be know as The Dread Deadbeat [insert word beginning with P] Kimberlin. The TKPOTD from a year ago today is worth recycling for that purpose.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin was tagged with the nickname “The Dread Pirate Kimberlin” back in 2012 when he created a pirate-themed website for his Bloggers Offense Fund. He’s since been referred to as The Dread Performer/Publisher/Prevaricator/Protestor/etc. Kimberlin, and after he failed to pay court sanctions and fees that he owes for the frivolous LOLsuits and appeals he’s waged, “Dread” became “Deadbeat.”

For the past year or so, The Dread Deadbeat [insert word beginning with P] Kimberlin appears to have been trying to keep a lower public profile since losing every one of the LOLsuits he filed between 2012 and 2016. He may have learned that pro se litigation is an ineffective method of intimidation against a defendant determined to stand up for his First Amendment rights.

Just because he’s been trying to fly below the radar doesn’t mean that he hasn’t been observed. Interesting things may unfold this year.

Meanwhile, here’s an image that has appeared from time to time at Hogewash! to illustrate the results of Team Kimberlin’s activities. It sums up TDPK’s career—

Stay tuned.

Maryland is one of the most difficult states in which to prove a defamation claim in court. The allegedly defamatory statement must be false, and the burden to prove falsity is on the plaintiff. One of the key problems with Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of pro-se lawfare was that he picked a defendant-friendly forum to bring his case. Another was that he failed produce any evidence to support his claims, as the TKPOTD from six years ago points out.

* * * * *

During the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial last year, Brett Kimberlin accused Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and me of defaming him by calling him a “murder,” a “terrorist,” and a “pedophile.” He lost that case because he could not prove that anything we said about him was false.

2015 should bring more legal findings related to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin.

Team Kimberlin’s presence is slowly fading  from the Interwebz. The number actual Kimberlin-controlled websites continues to dwindle, and the various web footprints of many of his enablers is shrinking. Bill Schmalfeldt still his is theportlypundit Twitter account and his Deep Derp Brain Radio website and Facebook page, but they have essentially no impact.

Meanwhile, Hogewash! and The Other Podcast continue to thrive.

Perhaps The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Protestor Perjurer Performer Publisher Protector Pedo Pro-Se Pipsqueak Kimberlin, the Cabin Boy™, and the rest should have taken the advice in site’s motto: Never pick a fight with a man who buys pixels by the terabyte.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


While tidying up some loose ends, I took an inventory of the Kimberlin-related websites that are still running. The following sites are no longer accessible.

op-critical dot com
indictbreitbart dot org
alightymedia dot org
occupyforaccountibility dot org
americancrossroadswatch dot org

The apparent reason is that there is no hardware connected to their IP address. These sites first went dark several months ago when their name sever was taken down. Now the server hosting them is gone.

Op-Critical’s account on MySpace (yes, MySpace still exists) appears unused and doesn’t seem to have links to any of the band’s music. At least some of their videos are still on YouTube.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The recent  news from my home town Nashville reminded me of this TKPOTD that ran seven years ago today.

* * * * *

One wonders what they’re thinking over at Breitbart Unmasked? Of if there’re thinking? A few days ago, a post with Xenophon’s byline went up that attempted to appropriate the Acme Law theme that I’ve been using to describe the nonsensical legal theories behind Team Kimberlin’s lawfare and apply it to Aaron Walker’s recently filed memorandum in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. (That’s the suit against Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me that accuses us of defaming The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin by writing truthful things about him.)

Now, if Brett Kimberlin is known for anything, it’s for being convicted as the Speedway Bomber and for being the guy who lied about selling marijuana to Dan Quayle. So why, one wonders, would his propaganda website include this LooneyTunes clip in a post?

Yeah, the coyote is fiddling with nitroglycerin and TNT instead of Tovex, but still …

I’m not the only one who made a connection between the bombings.
Of course, the Speedway Bomber is an unlikely suspect because his M.O. never included warning potential victims.
