Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Ah, the Streisand Effect! That’s the massive tsunami of adverse publicity that can result from an inept attempt to use lawfare to shutdown adverse publicity. Brett Kimberlin’s misuse of the courts not only magnified the attention focused on his past and present activities, it backfired in court. The TKPOTD for four years ago today described one aspect of how his brass knuckles reputation was doing him more harm than good.

* * * * *

Here’s another fun factoid from the results of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare against Aaron Walker. For four years now, TDPK’s has been lying about what happened during his confrontation with Aaron outside of Judge Rupp’s courtroom on 9 January, 2012. His claim that he was assaulted has been rejected by every judge that has examined it. When he sought his first peace order against Aaron, the judge found that harassment could be a basis for the order but not assault. (Note that the order was overturned on appeal because there was no evidence of harassment either.) Most recently, he sued Aaron in the RICO Retread LOLsuit alleging battery during the 2012 courthouse incident, and he lost, so now TDPK has both the doctrines collateral estoppel and res judicata preventing him from being able to sue again about the assault that never happened.Shirts

Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare has not only failed to silence his critics, it is having the additional effect of vindicating them. The Streisand Effect merely results in boomeranged publicity. The Kimberlin Effect is turning out to be even more disastrous.

It’s gonna take a while for the whole story to play out, but I’ll be covering it here.

Stay tuned.

It took a bit longer for The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin to get get over his craving for disastrous LOLsuits, and there are still a few loose end.

While it has been important to report the facts when dealing with Team Kimberlin, it’s been amusing to engage in pointage, laughery, and mockification at their expense. It’s been particularly satisfying to make fun of their lame attempts at making fun of me. Four years ago today, I warned the Gentle Reader to Beware of Cheap Imitations resulting from a bit of alleged satire from Bill Schmalfeldt.

Brett Kimberlin has a long history of making inflated claims about the effectiveness and reach of his not-for-profits Consider the howler detailed seven years ago today in a post titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin’s Extended Crew.

* * * * *

During the damages hearing for the Kimberlin v. Allen lawsuit back in November, 2011, TDPK said the following under oath concerning one of his “charities”:

The other organization is called Velvet Revolution. And Velvet Revolution is a, it’s an organization that has over 150 organizations affiliated with it nationwide, with a membership base of over, over a million people …

That’s one heckuva following. Gentle Reader, do you think it’s real?

Me neither.

* * * * *

In 2017, Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. While the empr dot media Ukrainian news website still appears to be a going concern, the protectourelections dot org website has only rarely been updated over the past year. The PayPal donation link goes to dead account, and has been like that for a while.

While VRUS may have tried to “affiliate” with 150 or so other groups, few, if any, of the connections were two-way. If Kimberlin were able to exploit “over a million people” as potential donors, the POE website’s PayPal link would be too valuable to allow it to be out of service.

It’s almost as if Kimberlin was lying.

One of the reasons that Bill Schmalfeldt has been such an ineffective PR flack for Team Kimberlin is that he has never been able to keep any of his multitudinous web identities in place long enough to establish any real brand identity or following outside of a few members of Team Kimberlin and a larger group of people he has harass and who keep an eye on him. The TKPOTD from four years ago today dealt with one of the many times the Cabin Boy™ has run back under the porch when confronted by Reality.

* * * * *

NQ20160113Yesterday evening, the Cabin Boy™ took his YouGetNoQuarter Twitter account private again. I’ve lost track of the number of times that he’s run away and hidden from public view.

It must be depressing to believe one must conduct so much of one’s affairs skulking away from the light. OTOH, the urge to hide such a blatantly misleading tweet as the one on the left must be overwhelming.

Of course, the Cabin Boy™ hasn’t completely disappeared from the Internet. He was wasting Dave Alexander’s bandwidth by commenting over at the Craft Blog yesterday evening.

res_judicata_mugsOne of the things he was going on about over there was his incorrect notion that he has grounds sue Roy Schmalfeldt over allegations Roy has made about Bill being a rapist. The Cabin Boy™ sued Roy about that last summer, and his suit was dismissed with prejudice. That means that he can’t sue Roy about those allegations again because the dismissal counts as a finding on the merits that what Roy said was not false. IANAL, but if the statements weren’t false before the Cabin Boy™ sued, they still shouldn’t be false if they are repeated now. Res judicata and all that. More important, res judicata applies to any claim that Schmalfeldt might have been able to bring against any of the defendants he named in his Grady, et al. (I) LOLsuit. Again, IANAl, but it seems that the Cabin Boy™ is barred from suing any of those individuals again for repeating anything they said about him before 19 August, 2015, when the suit was dismissed.

The Cabin Boy™ had a right to a day in court with them over those issues, but he waived it by dismissing his suit with prejudice.

Meanwhile, the Cabin Boy’s™ (at)BayCountryCafe and (at)ThePortlyPundit Twitter accounts have been quiet since 23 December and 3 January, respectively.

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.
