Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When the members of Team Kimberlin have run out of ways to annoy their perceived enemies, they fall back on telling lies about them. The TKPOTD from three years ago shows one example of such a stilly lie.

BTW, when Mrs. Hoge heard of Schmalfeldt’s grandiose offer, her first reaction was to chuckle. Then she said. “Tell him, ‘No thank you.'” or words to that effect. Well, to that effect, but perhaps a little stronger.

Today is the eighth anniversary of my first blog post about Brett Kimberlin. It was called No Thugs Zone.

* * * * *

Fellow blogger and Maryland resident Stacy McCain has had to move his family out of the state because of threats related to blogging about Brett Kimberlin. He is not the only blogger suffering abuse from Kimberlin.

Mr. Kimberlin was unwise in choosing to pick a fight with the blogosphere. He is likely to find that, while we don’t always agree with one another, we have each other’s backs when the freedom of the Internet is threatened. Mr. Kimberlin and those who have supported him (I’m looking at you, Ms. Streisand) have bitten off more than they can chew. The pushback is just beginning.

UPDATE–The McCain family is having a ton of unforeseen expenses because of their sudden move. I just hit his tip jar. Why don’t you?

UPDATE 2–Expect more, a lot more, about this on Friday.

I’m not done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When you’re writing about a bunch of psycho, you can wind up writing about psychology. This TKPOTD appeared six years ago today.

* * * * *

This post is about Team Kimberlin and psychology, that is to say, their crude attempts at the practice of psychology. One of the characteristics that I noticed fairly soon into my coverage of these folks was their continued reference to the alleged mental illnesses of those who wrote about them. This has included such absurd claims as that someone might be dangerously violent because he has ADD. Or that another person has substance abuse problems. I’m supposed to have OCD.

According to the DSM-IV (that’s the psychologists’ diagnostic bible), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a ego dystonic disorder. That means that the sufferer actually suffers because he is distressed by his own behavior. I am pleased to say that I’m not usually bothered by my own behavior, so if I have anything like OCD, it would be Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder which is ego syntonic, meaning that the behavior fits with the person’s self-image and doesn’t cause him distress. Someone with OCPD is not aware of anything abnormal. He explains why his actions are rational, it is usually impossible to convince him otherwise, and he tends to derive pleasure from his obsessions or compulsions. Those around him suffer.

I’m told neither OCD nor OCPD fits me; however, Jerk NOS has been suggested by a friend who is a psychologist. I think she was joking.

But back to Team Kimberlin …

If I remember my Pysch 101 from 1966 (or there about) correctly, Sigmund Freud defined psychological projection as a defense mechanism by which a person unconsciously rejects his own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world instead. Projection involves psychically expelling one’s negative qualities onto others. It’s a common psychological process, and I suppose projecting one’s own propensity for violence and lying or one’s own obsessive behaviors onto others makes it easier to live with a corrupt personality.

Crazy People Are Dangerous™

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


What kind of person builds time bombs and sets them in public places?

I believe that cowardice would be one of such a person’s defining characteristics.

What kind of person files multiple privileged court documents filled with defamatory lies but will never say the same things in a non-privileged forum?

Again, cowardice is probably part of the person’s character.

This post from four years ago today is about such a person.

On Wednesday, several items appeared on the case docket that had been filed by Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin. Yesterday, I obtained copies from the Clerk of the Court. (The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin hasn’t served me with copies yet.) Last night, I reviewed their filings, and this morning, I filed a motion to strike one of them which I believes contains improper, immaterial, and scandalous material in its title in violation of Md. Rule 2-322(e).

Here is the Kimberlin filing with the title redacted.

Here is my motion to strike.

My motions speaks for itself, so I do not intend to make any further public comment on either motion until the court has ruled on them.

* * * * *

While the court did not strike the Kimberlins’ motion, it did order the caption redacted in the Maryland Case Search Database.

COUSY: (Telephone Filter) Hello, Mr. Atsign. My name is Bob Cousy.

JOHNNY: Not *The* Bob Cousy who played for the Celtics. I’m a fan.

COUSY: No. Just *A* Bob Cousy. I hadn’t been born when that Bob Cousy was playing point guard. I’m calling about The Grouch.

JOHNNY: What about him?

COUSY: This has come out left field … sorry to mix my sports metaphors … but he’s suddenly started harassing my wife and me. And our baby.

JOHNNY: So why are you calling me?

COUSY: I’m told you might be helpful.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin would have the world believe that he is the most special of special snowflakes and that anyone who doesn’t give him what he wants is engaged in harassment. He’s even tried to claim that a judge who ruled against him did so in order to harass him. The Legal LULZ Du Jour posted four years ago today contained a motion The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin filed to have that judge removed from a case.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin is now claiming that he is being harassed by Judge Mason:

[T]he Court has, by word and conduct, manifested bias and prejudice, and harassed Defendants based on prejudice against victims.

That’s found near the bottom of the fourth page of this—

I’m looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

* * * *

Of course, the judges that TDPK has faced during his campaign of lawfare have not tried to harass him. In fact, they’ve often allowed him to get away with inappropriate behavior because he was proceeding without legal counsel. However, it does look as if Kimberlin managed to push several courts to their limits.

The Circuit Court in Montgomery Count doesn’t usually assign most civil cases to one judge who follows from complaint to trail. Hearings are handled by whichever judge happens to be sitting on the day a hearing is scheduled, and one judge doesn’t pickup the case until it goes to trial. At least six judges handled the various preliminary hearing in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al nuisance LOLsuit during 2013 and 2014. Kimberlin was able to tell different stories to different judges at different hearings, preventing the case from being dismissed and causing the case to go to trail—only to see the trial end in a directed verdict for the defendants when it turned out that Kimberlin didn’t have a viable case. Kimberlin’s subsequent LOsuits in the Montgomery Count Circuit court were all assigned to one judge who couldn’t be flimflammed with changing stories. Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) and Kimberlin v Hunton & Williams, et al. (II) both ended in dismissal.

The U. S. District Court caught on fairly quickly and began assigning all of Kimberlin’s cases to the same judge. Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I), Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams, et al. (I), Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al., and Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. were all dismissed. Kimberlin v. Frey ended with summary judgment for the defendant.

Justice isn’t harassment.
