Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin is a perjurer. He was convicted of perjury before he turned 20, and he has continued to make false statements under oath. In January, 2013, I ran a series of post dealing with the lies he told in court during the the early days of his lawfare campaign. The post from eight years ago today was Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Perjury 10.

* * * * *

On 29 June, 2012, there was a hearing in Montgomery County District Court for a peace order petition that TDPK had filed against one John Norton. Brett Kimberlin was in his usual form. While I don’t have an official transcript of the hearing, Aaron Walker has transcribed portions from audio that he obtained from the court.

TDPK claimed that Mr. Norton had been lurking in the bushes in front of the Kimberlin residence. In the transcript below K is Brett Kimberlin and J is the judge. TDPK said that he was going to pick up his 8 year old daughter from a neighbor’s house—

K: And so I walked out of my door, to go pick her up, and I see a man lurking behind the bushes in the corner of my property and I was kind of taken aback by it. But I kept walking toward my car because I had to pick my daughter up.

J: Now was that in the general direction of where the man was in the bushes or in the opposite?

K: The man was facing the road, the— to the left of the— on the left side of my house there’s some bushes towards the road and my car was right in front of my house.

Lurking in the bushes? As I type this, I’m looking at the Google Street View image of the Kimberlin residence. Looking from the street, there’s a small shrub that appears to actually be on the property next door by the neighbor’s driveway. It’s “on the left” as seen from that point of view. There’s also a even smaller shrub at the opposite front corner of the Kimberlin lot. It appears to be about as tall as the fire hydrant in front of it. I’m not sure how one would lurk in those bushes.

K: And so I turn around, obviously I was concerned about my daughter. You know, I didn’t know if anything had happened to her, I was scared, so I turned around and I went to the neighbor’s house. She was right there in front of the house. I put her in the car and Mr. Norton is driving away, and so I—

J: Have you ever seen this man before?

K: Never seen him before in my life.

J: Every seen the car before?

K: Never seen the car before.

J: Alright.

K: So I followed the car, and went around the corner, and there was a stop light. I pull up behind him and he’s… again it’s a convertible, and he reaches around with a camera, again, and takes more pictures of me. I gave him the finger, I admit it, you know, I don’t like a guy coming out in front of my house taking pictures of me and my kid.

He’s concerned that this lurker might be dangerous, so he puts his daughter in the car and chases after the guy.

Uh, huh.

So what was Mr. Norton’s side of the story? In the transcript below N is John Norton and L is his lawyer.

L: Did there come a time when you ended up coming into contact with Mr. Kimberlin?

N: Not any physical contact, but he did chase me down in his car, the picture he showed, shows him behind me, flipping me off. I don’t know why he chose to chase me down. I was not on his property, I have stopped my car on [Kimberlin’s street name omitted].

L: What brings you on [Kimberlin’s street]?

N: It is a bail out route on my commute.

L: And where is your commute?

N: I commute between Bethesda, Maryland, and Fairfax, Virginia.

Chased him down?

L: And on June… what’s the date here? June 15, is it? June 15, you said, what brought your attention— what caused you to take out your phone and take a picture of the car behind you?

N: When I was on River Road, I saw what turned out to be Mr. Kimberlin’s car driving erratically, cutting in and out of lanes, trying to catch up to me, tailgating me. We reached the stoplight at River and Burdette, he pulled up… you can see how close in the picture, how close it was. He… he pulled out a pen and [unintelligible] furiously scribbingly as if he wanted me to know he was writing something down, he was revving the engine in his car, and for me, I thought, “some crazy person is chasing me down, I need some evidence, I need some protection.” So I picked up my phone and shot about seven seconds of video, from which the picture of him flipping me off was taken as a framegrab.

TDPK claimed that he was freaked out when Seth Allen reposted the picture of him flipping off Mr. Norton.

K: The picture of my car, that was posted on the internet by the client of the man that I had the peace order against. So I get kind of freaked out that, you know, this guy is somehow related to the guy who I had a peace order against, Mr. Walker.

Note that Mr. Allen could not have posted the photo before or during TDPK’s chase of Mr. Norton. In any case, Mr. Norton had no association with either Mr. Allen or Mr. Walker.

L: Now, are you associated with Aaron Walker, any [sic]?

N: I am not.

L: Okay. And, did you go to his house on June 15, to take pictures, get out of your car and take pictures?

N: I did not go to Mr. Kimberlin’s house. I did not get out of my car. I did not take pictures at his house.

L: Alright. And what caused you to post the picture of Mr. Kimberlin flipping you off on the internet?

N: Well, first of all, for protection to make sure that it was publicized, that someone had chased me down and was flipping me off. And also, honestly, I thought it was kind of funny.

We have two different stories. One is told by a reputable citizen with nothing more that traffic tickets on his record, and that story is corroborated, at least in part, by other evidence. The other is told by a convicted felon, one of who’s crimes is perjury, and that story is contradicted by other evidence. Who would you believe?

So we have the records of nine appearances before judges in Montgomery County, and each appearance has something hinky about TDPK’s testimony. Some of his tales are, perhaps, merely flakey. Some are clearly false, but the State’s Attorney has given TDPK a free pass.

John McCarthy has not yet answered the letter I sent him asking about his decisions to refrain from prosecuting Brett Kimberlin for perjury. Fine. I’m not one of his constituents. Maybe he will have to explain his decision in 2014 when he’s up for reelection.

UPDATE–Spelling error corrected. @&#$ing autocorrect.

* * * * *

Lying liars gotta lie.

BTW, in 2016, a District Court Commission found probable cause to charge Kimberlin with perjury for statements made in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, but once again, the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office dropped the charge.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It seems that whenever their lips are moving or their finger are touching a keyboard, the members of Team Kimberlin are lying. This Prevarication Du Jour from six years ago today dealt with several lies.

* * * * *

Remember so long, long ago—way back yesterday—when the Cabin Boy™ announced that he was leaving the Interwebz for good? Well, just when you thought it was safe to get back onto Twitter …CBPR201411142230Z

Some of us don’t know that Patrick Grady didn’t come to Maryland because we saw him here today. I saw him when we left BWI airport together just after midnight this morning. I saw him again at Einstein Bros. while we had bagels for brunch. I saw him at the Howard County District Courthouse this afternoon. So did Deputy Sheriff Mays, who served the formal paperwork for The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s peace order petition. (Deputy Mays signature is on the return of service paperwork.) So did Judge Mary Reese, before whom Mr. Grady appeared this afternoon.

Of course, there’s also the paperwork trail of a ticket from Midway to BWI on Southwest, the receipt for lodging at the Holiday Inn, and the court order he received when the case was dismissed.

#LyingLoser

* * * * *

Those pesky facts keep getting the the way of The Narrative.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin is a bunch of liars. For example, consider this Prevarication Du Jour from four years ago today.

* * * * *

Last year, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread falsely reported on what happened in the 13 March and 14 May hearings on the peace order petition that Brett Kimberlin filed against me. The accuracy of its reporting under its current retread editor is no better. Indeed, it may be worse.bu210610151234zIn fact, the court made no such finding.

Of course, if the current editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread believes that he can prove that I have engaged in stalking of the Kimberlin family, he can try to make that part of his defense in Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. However, before he wastes his time, he might want to consider that when The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin attempted to sue me for stalking in Kimberlin v. Walker, et al., he lost on summary judgment. Also, when he has tried raise the issue in further lawsuits, he lost again. More to the point, when TDPK filed his failed 2015 peace order petition, he alleged stalking as one of the bases, but the judge who reviewed his petition struck the stalking allegation from the temporary order.

* * * * *

Meanwhile, returning to 2020, the current Kimberlin-related news operation EuroMaidanPR has taken no notice of the Hunter Biden Ukraine story that broke in the NY Post yesterday,

Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It seems to me that the real reason that Brett Kimberlin has engaged in his effort to use lawfare as a means of brass knuckles reputation management is that, although he doesn’t appear to be ashamed or feel any remorse for the things he has done, he does seem to understand that most people don’t approve of the things he has done. Thus, he would prefer that his past and much of his present actions remain hidden.

One of the things he tried to cover up was the perjured complaints that Tetyana Kimberlin and he filed against Aaron Walker and me alleging that we had harassed her elder daughter. Kimberlin filed a motion to seal the complaint and lied to the court about serving us with copyies of the motion, but he got caught in his lie when the court sent me a copy of its ruling denying the motion. The TKPOTD from four years ago today provides more detail.

* * * * *

A few weeks ago, I posted this motion to seal the records of the State v. Walker and State v. Hoge cases in which Aaron Walker and I were falsely charged with online harassment of a minor. The perjured Applications for Statement of Charges were filed by Tetyana Kimberlin, and the motion purports to bear her signature.

Neither Aaron nor I were served a copy of the motion. I found out about it when I received the copy shown above from the District Court showing Judge Wolfe’s denial of the motion. I later received service of the State’s response to the motion as well.

Aaron also received a copy from the District Court. Even though the judge has already denied the order, he filed an opposition to the motion to seal in order to make certain the case records would be available as evidence in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

Even though Tetyana Kimberlin’s motion was denied on 11 July, the Kimberlin’s filed this “Reply to Defendant Aaron Walker’s Motion to Unseal, and Motion for Sanctions” on 8 August.

popcorn4bkThis yet another example of Brett Kimberlin’s increasing panic. The motion before the court was not one from Aaron to unseal. It was Tetyana Kimberlin’s (nominally) motion to seal. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin now has so many cases to track that he can no longer keep them straight.

Also, at no point in his bizarre filing does TDPK actually ask the court to impose any sanction on Aaron.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

BTW, look at what is purported to be Tetyana Kimberlin’s signature on the original motion. Now, look at her signature on the reply to Aaron Walker.

Forging forgers gotta forge.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Probably the least competent and most mockable member of Team Kimberlin is the musician wannabe William Ferguson. The TKPOTD from four years ago today dealt with one his failed predictions of the direst of dire direness that was supposed to befall me.

* * * * *

S_A201605121243ZNow, that’s an interesting turn of phrase.

* * * * *

Later that day, I put up this post—Bombshell Du Jour?

* * * * *

I wonder if this is what Ferguson thinks is his “bombshell”?S_A201605130550ZThose are the forged tweets that Brett Kimberlin attempted to use as evidence during the District Court hearing for the peace order he sought against me last year. Those fakes have been debunked (go here for details), and the doubling down by Breitbart Umasked Bunny Boy Unread on a defamatory story that included them is one of the bases for the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.S_A201605130553Z

If I had been lying about those tweets during the District Court hearing, one would expect that they would have been offered again during Kimberlin’s appeal to the Circuit Court along with additional backup evidence developed during the two month delay. That didn’t happen—perhaps because Kimberlin knew that I could prove that I was not the source of the tweets. My lawyer had the necessary evidence sitting in a folder ready to be introduced if needed.

The Team Lickspittle EOD crew was sent to disarm Ferguson’s “bombshell” over a year ago. It turned out to be a dud.

* * * * *

I seems like everything Team Kimberlin has touched since the Turn of the Century has been a dud.

The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It was five years ago that Bill Schmalfeldt was on Twitter thumping his chest about how he was going to get Patrick Grady on the witness stand and … well, something doubleplus ungood was going to happen to Patrick. Schmalfeldt’s bravado was related to a peace order petition that he had filed in Maryland. Given Schmalfeldt’s actual actions on the day of the hearing, it’s likely that didn’t expect Patrick to show up. He was wrong. Patrick appeared at the hearing, but the Cabin Boy™ didn’t, as I reported five years ago today in a post titled In Re Schmalfeldt v. Grady.

* * * * *

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt was a no-show. The peace order petition was dismissed.

More later.

UPDATE—

Cowardly no-show
Bogus petition dismissed
FroYo and mayo

* * * * *

That was the first of the civil cases The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt filed against Patrick Grady. The Cabin Boy™ went on to file four LOLsuits naming Patrick as a defendant and four more naming “Paul Krendler,” claiming that Grady was Krendler. He lost every single case.

Losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The multiple LOLsuit filed by Team Kimberlin against me and my co-defendants have been a pain in the neck (or a couple of feet lower). OTOH, I have enjoyed watching The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin and the Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt out-lawyer themselves. The TKPOTD from two years ago today dealt with on nice blunder by Kimberlin.

* * * * *

I’ve been reviewing the documents produced by the Kimberlins during discovery in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. One of them is a copy of a post from Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread titled Lee Stranahan and Aaron Walker Smear A Teenager’s Family And Try To Snuff Out Her Career. The post was originally published on 29 August, 2013, just after The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin had filed his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit and just after the Montgomery County State’s Attorney had dropped the first set of false criminal charges Kimberlin filed against Aaron and me. I was not surprised to find that the post is now missing from the Interwebz. I was surprised that TDPK would consider putting it into evidence.

You see, the post contains evidence that is part of the proof that the tweets TDPK attempted to use as evidence in his 2015 peace order petition are forgeries. By offering the post in discovery, he has authenticated it.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

And when TDPK tried to use the forged tweets in another trial, they were inadmissible.

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Early July has been a continuing rough spot for The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lawfare campaigns. In 2012, his second bogus peace order against Aaron Walker was overturned. In 2013, his petition for a protective order against his wife failed. In 2014, five of the seven counts in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit were dismissed on summary judgment. In 2015, the portion of his Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) RICO Madness LOLsuit dealing with me finally died on appeal. The TKPOTD from four years ago today was about the death of Brett Kimberlin’s RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

This puts a formal end to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s appeal of the dismissal of the RICO and Ku Klux Klan Act claims in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.

Good riddance.

* * * * *

The Gentle Reader who has followed The Saga of Team Kimberlin through the years may have noticed that, with rare exceptions, everything has proceeded as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Back in 2012, I got involved writing about Brett Kimberlin and his band of supporters and enablers as a result of his being granted a blatantly unconstitutional gag order against Aaron Walker as part of a peace order petition which should have been denied in the first place. The gag order was overturned by a higher court and the peace order was thrown out on appeal. While it took a couple of months for those appeals, it took several years for the judge who knowingly refused to follow Supreme Court precedent in granting that gag order to be disciplined. But three years ago today, I was able to report that Another Loose End had finally been tied up in that case.

* * * * *

Those Gentle Readers who have not been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin from the beginning may not know what triggered the blogosphere’s interest in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. Back in 2012, TDPK sought a bogus peace order against Aaron Walker, and the District Court judge who mishandled that case included an unconstitutional gag order against Aaron in the peace order he issued. The gag order was overturned on appeal. The peace order itself was also overturned. It was that brass knuckles reputation management attack on the First Amendment that got a lot of bloggers interested in Brett Kimberlin.

The judge who issued the blatantly unconstitutional order has been reprimanded by the Maryland Commission on Judicial Disabilities. Aaron Walker discusses the details here.

UPDATE—The Scribd link at Allergic to Bull is flaky, but the reprimand can be found at the State’s website.

* * * * *

The peace orders The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin secured against Aaron Walker in early 2012 were that last civil actions he filed and won—and they were both overturned on appeal.

He’s never withdrawn his promise of “lawsuits for the rest of their lives” for Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Alexander, and me, but he hasn’t gone after any of us since 2016.

Perhaps he thinks he’s done with me.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


During the early stages of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare against people who wrote truthfully about him and his activities, he was allowed to present testimony, but that came to a screeching halt during the appeal hearing for the peace order I sought against him in 2013. My lawyer informed the court of TDPK’s perjury conviction, and at that time, Maryland was the last state that still barred perjurers from testifying in court. Judge Stansfield did not allow him to testify at that hearing.

Kimberlin didn’t try to testify during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial in 2014, but he did try to testify during the hearings related to the bogus peace order petition he filed against me in 2015. Neither Judge Williams nor Judge Creighton allowed him to testify. Of course, he lost both the lawsuit and the peace order petition.

During the 2016 session of the Maryland legislature, the state senator from Kimberlin’s district submitted a bill to repeal the ban on testimony by perjurers. It passed. The TKPOTD from three years ago was about that change in the law.

* * * * *

Effective 1 October, Maryland’s ban on testimony from convicted perjurers will be repealed, and the Cabin Boy™ is celebrating.MU201606240005ZWorse news for The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. This means that he can be called as a witness. Better still, it means he can be cross examined if he testifies on his own behalf.

Heh.

UPDATE—The bill leading to the new law was introduced by the State Senator who represents the district where Kimberlin lives. I was aware of the bill and did not bother to lobby against it because the change will allow TDPK’s testimony to be compelled in a civil suit. (Of course, he still has a Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, but invoking that in front of a jury …)

TDPK was aware of the change in the law when he moved to have the trial in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit rescheduled to a date before 1 October. Apparently, short-circuiting discovery in that case was more important to him that being able to testify in his own defense.

Hmmmmm.

* * * * *

As a general rule in Maryland, convictions that are over 15 years old can’t be used to impeach the credibility of a witness. However, one of the exceptions to that rule is a conviction for perjury. So the net result of the change in the law is that Kimberlin can now be forced to either testify or invoke the Fifth Amendment—and the court still can be made aware that he’s a convicted liar. He’s had a couple of turns on the witness stand under the new rule, and that may be partially responsible for his apparent lack of enthusiasm for LOLsuits.

Not much has proceeded as he had imagined.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Four years ago today, things weren’t going so well for The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin, and I poked a bit of fun at him and his buddies with a post titled Team Kimberlin Channels Brave Sir Robin. Let me set the stage for those who weren’t following The Saga back then or whose memories have gone fuzzy.

On Friday, 13 March, 2015, the District Court of Maryland for Montgomery County denied Kimberlin’s peace order petition against me. On Monday the 16th, Kimberlin filed his RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit which included me as a defendant. The next day, the 17th, his first RICO LOLsuit (Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al., aka Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al., aka RICO Madness) was dismissed against me by the U. S. District Court for the District of Maryland, the federal counts with prejudice and the state counts without prejudice.

* * * * *

Beginning last Sunday (when The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin had probably put the finishing touches on his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO2 LOLsuit), I began receiving an unusually large number of obscene and/or threatening comments here at Hogewash!; most of them were poorly done photoshop jobs that used Mrs. Hoge’s face in an inappropriate manner.) The last one came in at 3:21 pm ET on Tuesday, 17 March.

sir robin shieldAt 3:56 pm on Tuesday, I posted Judge Hazel’s order dismissing all of TDPK’s Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness claims against me. Since then,

[crickets]

Brave Sir Anonymous Coward has run away.

When Team Kimberlin thinks they are about to score a win, they are big on spiking the ball before they get it to the end zone. Where I learned the game, that’s called a fumble, and it often results in a turnover to the other team’s advantage.

#Losers

Failing failures gotta fail.

Meanwhile, I think I’ll taunt them a second time.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


it was four years ago today that Brett Kimberlin’s petition for a peace order against me was denied. It wasn’t the first time I’d beaten him in court, but that day saw the first of many post here at Hogewash! titled Qapla’.

* * * * *

The peace order was denied. More later when I get back home.

* * * * *

I posted that from the waiting area outside of the courtroom. The follow up pasts can be found here.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin is a bunch of liars and clumsy ones at that. Five years ago today, I ran a post titled He Didn’t See It Here that dealt with one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s false narratives.

* * * * *

After returning home from church and having lunch, I checked in on my Twitter timeline and found this:@wjjhogeTL201401261800ZCurious, I took a look at @CabinBoyRadio and found this:@cabinboyradio201401261623ZSince I had no idea what Schmalfeldt was talking about, I checked out his blog. It seems that he is trying to pin a bunch of “spam” comments to his blog on me. Of course, none of them are written in anything like the style of my tweets or comments on other blogs. None of them come any IP address associated with me. The IPs appear to be spoofed rather than TOR IPs because at least one is from AT&T Wireless, an unlikely spot for a TOR node.

I also found this rant.

[Image deleted. It was a rant about someone referring to him as “Schmuckfeldt.”]

There are several places where he may have seen that name before, but he never saw it in a post on this blog. I’m sure of that. I just ran a global search of all posts, this was the search return (Click the image to embiggen it.):ScreenCap201401261804Z
I see three possible sources for the comments that Schmalfedt complains about. The first would be someone opposed to Team Kimberlin who is yanking Schmalfeldt’s chain. If that’s the case, I hope whoever it is stops. The second possibility is that a member of Team Kimberlin or a supporter/eneabler is doing it to stir up trouble. The third is that Schmalfeldt created the comments himself in an attempt to run the “accuse the accuser” play one more time.

Whatever. He didn’t see that name in a Hogewash! blog post.

UPDATE—After my Sunday afternoon nap, I checked my Twitterz again and found more tweets about Schmalfeldt and evidence. So I went over to @CabinBoyRadio again and found that he had posted some tweets allegedly from me. I was puzzled where he found them, because I couldn’t remember sending them. Then he tweeted this link to Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson: http://topsy.com/s?q=schmuckfeldt%20from%3Awjjhoge&type=tweet. I clicked on it and found the tweets that he was claiming were mine. This one bothered me.forged_tweet 363781895428907009I don’t cc myself on Twitter. What’s the point? So I clicked on the Reply button of the top tweet and got this.forger_tweet355754735903428608That’s not my tweet, is it? Indeed, it is tweet number 355754735903428608 which was sent by @AaronWorthing.@aaronworthing20130712

None of the other tweets are mine either.

This is not the first time that Bill Schmalfeldt has been caught trying to forge evidence. He would be well advised to stop. Very soon. As in now.

UPDATE 2—I notice he also tries to use postings at hogewash dot net as evidence. Oh, please! That site ran copies of the obscene images Schmalfeldt created of me last summer. It’s clearly not a site associated with or controlled by me.

UPDATE 3—If the Gentle Reader would like to see the original tweets on Twitter, click here and scroll down to last July.

UPDATE 4—Here’s what turns up when one does the same Topsy word search on @AaronWorthing:topsy_AW_SchmuckfeldtAs you can see, the “Hitler is not happy …” tweet is Aaron Walker’s which proves absolutely nothing about the identity of Kimberlin Unmasked. It does, however, confirm that what Schmalfeldt has been trying to peddle is bogus.

#Fail

* * * * *

The technique of using a Topsy search to generate pseudo-tweets that appear to have been originated by someone who was included with an @ mention was recycled in March, 2015, when The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin attempted to use forged evidence during a hearing for a peace order petition against me.

I’m pretty sure that I’ve previously mentioned that Kimberlin has been convicted of perjury and attempting to forge DoD driver’s licenses. He got his name in the papers in 2017 in connection with fake documents apparently aimed at causing trouble for the Trump administration.

Why would anyone believe anything he says?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It was six years ago today that I first met Aaron Walker. I had traveled down to the Montgomery County Circuit Courthouse in Rockville to observe the appeal trial for the peace order that Brett Kimberlin had been granted against Aaron. Kimberlin had already seen the unconstitutional gag order portion of the peace order struck down. Now, he would see his petition dismissed for lack of evidence. Here’s how I summarized the day’s events:

* * * * *

Judge Rupp ruled that there was no evidence to support Brett Kimberlin’s petition for a Peace Order.

Part of the way through his presentation Kimberlin accused Mr. Walker of mobilizing an Army of Davids (who he viewed as a right wing militia) against him. How about that, Prof. Reynolds?

UPDATE–Instalanche! Thank you, Prof. Reynolds! and welcome Instapundit readers! Feel free to click on the Home link in the menu bar and scroll around for other coverage.

UPDATE 2—I wrote some first impressions of the morning as I stopped for a cup of coffee on the way home. Here are some more thoughts:

I was not the only person who showed up to support Aaron Walker. There were a couple of well-wishers from the local area who were there along with a member of Mr. Walker’s family. The only person who showed up with Brett Kimberlin was Neal Rauhauser.

Today was the first time that I’ve met Aaron Walker face-to-face. I like him. He strikes me as a straight forward guy.

Today was also the first time that I have ever seen Brett Kimberlin. I had no personal contact with him, and he didn’t make much of an impression. He seemed frustrated by Judge Rupp’s insistence on sticking to the Rules of Evidence.

Let me second Aaron Walker’s request about contacting or harassing Mr. Kimberlin. Please don’t do it. Brett Kimberlin and his family have as much right to be left alone as anyone else. Don’t contact or harass him. Don’t contact or harass his family. Let the courts sort out the issues.

OTOH, Mr. Kimberlin has become a public person, and, as such, he is not immune from being discussed in a truthful manner in public fora. I intend to do so until these matters are settled. Remember, Aaron Walker’s federal lawsuit against Brett Kimberlin is still pending.

UPDATE 3—The guy in the courtroom who I didn’t recognize must have been David Hogberg. He has his report on the hearing here [broken link].

UPDATE 4—Aaron Walker’s account is here.

UPDATE 5—There’s other good coverage of Kimberlin v. Walker out there in the blogosphere:

Popehat
The Camp of the Saints
Breitbart
Legal Isurrection

And there’s an interesting backgrounder on Brett Kimberlin at The Other McCain.

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin kicked the wrong hornets’ nest.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Three years ago today, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s appeal of the denial of his bogus peace order petition against me was heard in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. The TKPOTD set the stage for the day’s events.

* * * * *

Last March, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a peace order petition against me on behalf of a third party. That petition was dismissed on 13 March after a hearing in the District Court. TDPK has appealed to the Circuit Court, and an appeal trial is scheduled for this morning.

During the District Court trial, Kimberlin introduced an altered tweet into evidence, but it wasn’t sufficient to make his case. It will be interesting to see what the convicted perjurer and forger has up his sleeve today.

Stay tuned

* * * * *

Later that day, I blogged my first Qapla’ post.

The Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order petition was denied.

Brett Kimberlin was not allowed to testify. He was also not allowed to represent his daughter.

UPDATE—Aaron Walker was present during this morning’s trial and has his report of it here.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Team Kimberlin member who as tried hardest and failed most miserably at real world relevance seems to be William Ferguson (aka Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson). Two years ago today, he was tweeting about the direst of dire direness about to come my way, as I reported in this post called Bombshell Du Jour?.

I wonder if this is what Ferguson thinks is his “bombshell”?S_A201605130550ZThose are the forged tweets that Brett Kimberlin attempted to use as evidence during the District Court hearing for the peace order he sought against me last year. Those fakes have been debunked (go here for details), and the doubling down by Breitbart Umasked Bunny Boy Unread on a defamatory story that included them is one of the bases for the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.S_A201605130553Z

If I had been lying about those tweets during the District Court hearing, one would expect that they would have been offered again during Kimberlin’s appeal to the Circuit Court along with additional backup evidence developed during the two month delay. That didn’t happen—perhaps because Kimberlin knew that I could prove that I was not the source of the tweets.

The Team Lickspittle EOD crew was sent to disarm Ferguson’s “bombshell” over a year ago. It turned out to be a dud.

The pointage, laughery, and mockification continues.
