Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s Internet presence seems to be slowly collapsing. At one point, he had almost two dozens active websites hosted on various servers. Now, only a few remain. Only two sites are left on the Dutch server, breitbartunmasked dot com and empr dot media. His BU PR site has been idle for over four months, and the Ukraine “news” site has only been sporadically updated. It hasn’t had a new post for over three weeks.

The onshore server that hosts his flagship sites, jmtp dot org and protectourelections dot org, only has seven sorta/kinda active sites, and none of them are well maintained. Here’s what their home pages look like along with the dates they were last updated.

Protect Our Elections (March, 2019)

Justice Through Music Project (January, 2019)

Act Up Enterprises (July, 2018)

Russia Dossier (June, 2018)

Treasonist Trump (December, 2017)

We Stand With Ukraine (August, 2017)

Manafort Watch (September, 2016)

I find the dates that some these sites were active and the topics they covered interesting when viewed in the context of the recent collusion conspiracy false narrative.

Yesterday’s TKPOTD dealt with one of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s failure to pay attention to details. So does today’s which originally ran five years ago. This was one of my favorites of his screwups.

* * * * *

Here’ another example of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s carelessness in his pleadings. It’s from the prayer for relief in his proposed second amended complaint.ECF 100-2k$2,000.000 is two-thousand dollars. The last time I checked, $2,000 does not exceed $75,000.

That math error is not the only consequential problem with that claim.

Shoddy workmanship is a characteristic of almost everything Brett Kimberlin does. One obvious example is his “music.” Another example is his failure to attend to such a simple requirement as sequentially numbering paragraphs in a court paper. This TKPOTD is from four years ago today.

* * * * *

Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 10(b) states: “A party must state its claims or defenses in numbered paragraphs …” Here’s how The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin numbered the paragraphs in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO2 Electric Boogaloo suit.

Unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, unnumbered, unnumbered, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129 ,130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141

popcorn4bkThe “reasoning” presented in those paragraphs is even more poorly organized that their numbering.

Meanwhile, the time to file an amended complaint without first seeking the court’s permission has passed. So has the time to file an opposition to my motion to dismiss the suit against me.

Tick, tock.

* * * * *

It took a while, but the District Court eventually granted both my motions to dismiss, one for lack of jurisdiction and the other for failure to state a claim. The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin appealed to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal which wound up awarding me a $600 sanction against Kimberlin “for filing a frivolous appeal in violation of Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 38.”

The TKPOTD from four years ago today dealt with a Team Kimberlin example of the truth of this couplet by Walter Scott—

Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practise to deceive!

* * * * *

I’ve been reviewing some of the posts and comments and tweets by various Team Kimberlin sock puppets as background for a … well, let’s leave it at I’ve been reviewing their stuff.

On 1 March, 2013, Brett Kimberlin was photographed stalking Aaron Walker’s wife in the parking lot of the Howard County District Courthouse. That afternoon, he published pictures he made of the Walkers at Breitbart Unmasked. This comment was made to that post.TT20130301Texas Tim is a sock puppet ID it appears Kimberlin has used from time to time. There are several flat-out lies in that comment. First, Aaron did not report an “altercation.” The report was of Kimberlin stalking Mrs. Walker by walking around her car, moving his car into a slot facing hers, and photographing her. Second, Aaron never accused Kimberlin of following him. Third, there was no report made of Kimberlin putting anything on the Walker’s car, certainly not a GPS locator. BTW, if there had been a GPS locator on the Walker’s car, it would have been turned over to the Howard County Police as evidence.

The bit about the GPS locator is telling. The courthouse incident occurred just about the same time that Kimberlin did install a GPS locator on the Justice Through Music Project SUV that his estranged wife was then driving.

The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin had so many different scams and false narratives going that he couldn’t keep track of them all.

It’s all about the Benjamins, so one of the things I do from time to time is go over the IRS Form 990s filed by The Dread Deadbeat Panhandler Kimberlin’s “charities.” The TKPOTD from six years ago today was about 2011 paperwork filed for Velvet Revolution US. (That’s his 501(c)4 that has had its name changed to Protect Our Elections/EMPR.)

* * * * *

The IRS Form 990 for a not-for-profit is supposed to list “Officers, Directors, Trustees, and Key Employees.” Velvet Revolution US listed the following individuals for 2011:

Jeff Cohen, Executive Director
Brad Friedman, Director

Although Brett Kimberlin testified under oath in the Kimberlin v. Allen lawsuit that he ran VRUS, he is not listed—not even as a key employee.

Kevin Zeese is an activist lawyer who has been involved with filing bar complaints against conservative lawyers (such as Justice Clarence Thomas) on behalf of VRUS. Although the VRUS website refers to Mr. Zeese as a Director of the organization, he is not listed on the 990 either.

When I asked a lawyer familiar with not-for-profit filings about these sorts of omissions, he remarked, “Oh, that’s just Kimberlin’s usual lack of attention to the niceties of corporate forms.”

Hmmmm.

One of the consistent aspects of Team Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare has been their abject incompetence at litigation. Back in 2016, I took a look at their failures in the context of what the U. S. military considers as the Nine Principles of Warfare. Three years ago today, the principle du jour was maneuver.

* * * * *

In yesterday’s TKPOTD, I pointed out how Team Kimberlin’s lack of understanding of the principles of warfare has rendered their lawfare campaign ineffective. Today, we’ll look at an example of a failure to properly apply the principle of maneuver.

Maneuver – Place the enemy in a position of disadvantage through the flexible application of combat power. Maneuver is the movement of forces in relation to the enemy to gain positional advantage. Effective maneuver keeps the enemy off balance and protects the force. It is used to exploit successes, to preserve freedom of action, and to reduce vulnerability. It continually poses new problems for the enemy by rendering his actions ineffective, eventually leading to defeat.

—U. S. Army FM 3-0

Let’s consider how The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin failed to place his opponents in a position of disadvantage during the discovery process in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit. He served requests for production of documents on Patrick Frey and tried to serve subpoenas for documents on Aaron Walker and me. It’s clear that he was fishing for discrepancies in order to play “gotcha” games. However, his service of the subpoenas was defective. Aaron elected to ignore his subpoena, and when TDPK filed a motion to compel, it was denied because of the defective service. (Judge Hazel’s Letter Order spelled out what was wrong: TDPK had served the subpoena himself in violation of Rule 45.) I let TDPK  have the responsive documents I had, hoping to avoid the hassle of a motion to compel. I was rewarded with a motion for sanctions when Kimberlin didn’t like what I was able to give him.

Undeterred, TDPK decided that he would subpoena Aaron, Aaron’s wife, and me for depositions, and on 10 March, he personally handed the Walkers’ subpoenas to Aaron and my subpoena to me. Of course, that violated Rule 45 again, so the service was invalid. Moreover, the scheduled date for the depositions was yesterday, 11 April, and discovery ended on 1 April.

At no time did Kimberlin’s actions provide him with a positional advantage. Indeed, it was he who was thrown off balance. His wound up posing new problems for himself rather than Patrick Frey or Aaron Walker or me. His own actions were ineffective and led to his defeat on the motion to compel against Aaron and will likely lead to his overall defeat in the suit.
