Brett Kimberlin does not like to take “No!” for an answer. When the judge in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit refused to modify the protective order sealing discovery in the case, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a petition for a Writ of Mandamus with the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals seeking to have the Court of Appeals order the District Court judge to do TDPK’s bidding. The TKPOTD for three years ago today dealt with the motion for expedited consideration that TDPK with the Court of Appeals.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s case is sooooo important that his petition for a writ of mandamus really, really, really needs to be acted on quickly. At least, that’s what TDPK says—
I wonder who that “close associate” of Frey who has been engaging in official corruption is?

Now that Kimberlin has lost the Frey LOLsuit and I’m no longer on the hook for TDPK’s motion to sanction me in that case, I can make some comments on that motion.
Of course, Kimberlin was gagged by the protective order. Protective orders are gag orders. However, he had no First Amendment right to publish sealed court materials. According to exhibits TDKP filed in another case, the “several” reporters who wanted to publish what they and Kimberlin hoped would be seen as dirt were Matt Osborne and Bill Schmalfeldt.
I was the “close associate of Respondent Frey engaging in official corruption.” Because I am still bound by the protective order, I can’t provide any more details than to say that the allegedly corrupt act was filing criminal complaints against Kimberlin and others in jurisdiction where the elected prosecutor was not a Democrat.
The Babylon Bee was in top form yesterday. First, it zinged the Collusion Truthers.Then it zapped a sizable crowd of Trump supporters.Donald Trump is a flawed individual. While the Mueller Report does find that Trump and the people around him did not engage in the “collusion” with a foreign power during 2016 election (or obstruct an investigation into something that didn’t happen), it also reveals some of the tawdry behavior that went on during the election campaign and its aftermath.
OTOH, imagine that Hillary Clinton had won the election. Would the Democrat’s interactions with Ukraine have been investigated? If so, would she have refrained from exercising executive privilege to conceal any special counsel’s report?
I’ll leave it to the Gentle Reader to puzzle through that exercise in alternate history.
Something that you’ll find in almost statement from any member of Team Kimberlin is one or more misused words. Five years ago today this post titled You Keep Using Those Words … cited several examples.

… I do not think they mean what you think they mean.
Perjury. Extortion. Reasonable Belief. Harassment. These are words with well defined meanings in law. Regardless of the apparent likeness, the Cabin Boy™ is not Humpty Dumpty, and he cannot bend these words to fit his imagination. He can rant on Twitter and his blog all he wants. It won’t change the law, and it won’t change the facts.
While I will still probably take note of Schmalfeldt’s nonsense and offer occasional corrections, the Gentle Reader should understand that my real engagement with the issues relating to the Cabin Boy’s™ behavior has been and still is with the appropriate authorities. I’m not in a position to say any more than that for now. The Gentle Reader may draw his own conclusions about things based on what has and has not happened.
Meanwhile, I’ve had enough of the Cabin Boy for today, and there’s still spring cleaning that needs to be done around stately Hoge Manor.

Lying liars gotta lie?
Stupid is as stupid does?
I believe we can embrace the power of AND in this case.
I’m so old, I remember when Reality was supposed to have a “liberal bias.”And Reality has been doing violence to much of the Left’s cherished agenda for the past few days.
Leftist ideas can’t withstand debate. Leftists know that, which is why they’re always trying to silence their opponents, generally in the name of some sort of decency or compassion that they themselves spectacularly lack.
