An Inside View of a Coronal Mass Ejection

In September, 2022, the Parker Solar Probe flew through one of the most powerful coronal mass ejections (CMEs) ever recorded. Parker’s data gathering while in the CME is providing information about the interaction of CMEs with interplanetary dust, with implications for space weather predictions.The spacecraft Parker Solar Probe watched the CME clearing the dust out of its path. The interaction between the CME and dust shows up as decreased brightness in images from Parker’s Wide-field Imager for Solar Probe (WISPR) camera because interplanetary dust reflects light, amplifying brightness where the dust is present.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

During his first couple of SLAPP LOLsuits against me and several other bloggers, Brett Kimberlin sought preliminary injunctions against my codefendants and me. The TKPOTD for nine years ago today looked at how that went for him.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin wanted a preliminary injunction in the Kimberlin v. Waker, et al. nuisance lawsuit that would have required Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me to take down everything we had posted on the Internet concerning him. His request was denied.

He sought permission to file a similar motion in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, but when he was told what limitations would be placed on his filing, he chickened out, saying that he would file yet another vexatious lawsuit and seek a preliminary injunction through it.

I now state for the record that I have decided to file a separate federal lawsuit against those defendants for conduct outside the current case, and I will file the preliminary injunction motion under that case number.

Go ahead. Make my day.

* * * * *

Kimberlin kept trying to make good on his threat of “lawsuits for the rest of their lives.” He sued me again and again, and he lost every time because of his incompetence at putting together a competent legal complaint.

A man’s got to know his limitations.

Contempt of Court?

New Mexico Governor Grisham is following the traditional Democrat playbook and engaging in massive resistance to the federal court’s injunction prohibiting her from enforcing or attempting to enforce her facially unconstitutional ban on the carrying of firearms in Albuquerque and Bernadillo County. She announced that she is amending her executive order so that is only applies to parks and playgrounds.

However, the judge’s order states—

In addition, Defendants are ENJOINED from applying, enforcing, or attempting to enforce, either criminally or civilly, Section (4) of the New Mexico Department of Health’s ‘Public Health Emergency Order Imposing Temporary Firearm Restrictions, Drug Monitoring and Other Public Safety Measures’ to the extent it imposes additional restrictions on the carrying or possession of firearms that were not already in place prior to its issuance.

Because the ban on carrying in parks and playground did not exist prior to the issuance of the executive order, reinstating it appears to be an explicit violation of the injunction.

While I was reviewing one of the archived versions of the breitbartunmasked dot com, I noticed this post from nine years ago today.The weedhire dot com website is gone and the domain registration is for sale.

Although he left the wholesale side of the marijuana trade in the over 40 years ago, it appears that The Deadbeat Pusher Kimberlin has maintained an keen interest in the industry.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in 2012, Brett Kimberlin created a pirate-themed website called the Bloggers Offense Fund. That led to his being referred to as The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. Eleven years ago today, I posted Dread Pirates Compared–Roberts v. #BrettKimberlin.

* * * * *

The Dread Pirate Roberts, so the story goes, is a pirate of near-mythical reputation, someone feared across the seven seas for his ruthlessness and swordfighting prowess, and who is well known for taking no prisoners. Ships immediately surrender and give up their cargos rather than be captured, a fate they imagine to be certain death.

The Dread Pirate Kimberlin is more like a legend in his own mind, a pretender who wishes to be feared for his ruthlessness and legal ability and to be known for vanquishing all comers in court. Critics, he thinks, should immediately stop telling the truth about him and give up their First Amendment rights at his command.

It turns out that Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s legal acumen seems to be as fictional as Dread Pirate Roberts’ existence. And no one will surrender to Dread Pirate Kimberlin.

* * * * *

As the mockery continued, Pirate became interchangeable with Pro-Se, Performer, Protestor, Protector, Perjurer, etc., and when Kimberlin failed to pay court-ordered sanction, Dread morphed into Deadbeat.

BTW, The Deadbeat Pusher Kimberlin is still the Speedway Bomber.

Terzan 12

The globular star cluster Terzan 12 is an excellent example of how the dust in space affects starlight coming from background objects. The location of this globular cluster, deep in the Milky Way in the constellation Sagittarius about 15,000 light-years away, means that it is shrouded in gas and dust which absorb its starlight. Intervening dust particles between Earth and the cluster to scatter blue light, so mostly the redder wavelengths make it to Earth, and interstellar dust clouds are inconsistent causing parts of the cluster look redder than others.
