Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin’s inept attempts to use lawfare as a form of brass knuckles reputation management has given the Internet one of its best examples of the Streisand Effect. First, he picked on a a leftwing blogger named Seth Allen. Then, he went after people who were trying to help Allen, especially a lawyer named Aaron Walker. When The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin secured a patently unconstitutional gag order against Aaron as part of a peace order, the blogosphere replied with Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.

Among the people who rallied to Aaron’s defense was Ali Akbar, who was President of the National Bloggers Club. That put Ali in TDPK’s sights, and Breitbart Unmasked began putting up post clearly designed to intimidate Ali. Seven years ago today I ran, this post titled More Attempted Intimidation.

* * * * *

Brietbart Unmasked, a web site associated with Brett Kimberlin and Company, has published what looks like an attempt to intimidate blogger Ali Akbar and his family. There are summaries of what’s happened so far at Twitchy and The Other McCain.

Ace of Spades is calling for a National Day of Blogging Silence on Friday. He is planning to go silent on that day except for the posting of an open letter to his congresscritter urging action to protect bloggers and their First Amendment rights. Other bloggers are hopping on that bandwagon. This blog will probably participate.

It was unwise of Mr. Kimberlin to begin picking on bloggers. It is even more foolish to try to go after Ali Akbar. I will repeat my advice, paraphrased from Rick Blaine’s advice to Major Strasser: Well, there are certain portions of the Internet, Mr. Kimberlin, that I would not advise you to invade. [See UPDATE 3.]

UPDATE—Datech Guy posts this:

Lets see Democrat operatives deciding they don’t like what a Black political activist is doing.
So they attempt to intimidate and threaten the activist’s family in order to make him stop.
… where is the NAACP? Where is the Wall to wall coverage in the MSM? Where is the congressional Black Caucus? Where is President Obama saying that if he had a son he would look like Ali? When will Eric Holder begin his investigation or is he waiting till Kimberlin & associates ask Ali & his family to show an ID to vote?
BTW, I’ve met Ali’s mother, she is a charming and intelligent woman. I suspect any attempt to intimidate her is going to fail spectacularly.

UPDATE 2–Stacy McCain adds this:

Does the phrase “Don’t mess with Texas” ring a bell? Maryland courts have been incredibly lenient with the Kimberlin/Rauhauser axis, but Ali assures me that Texas won’t take too kindly to the purposeful harassment of one of its law-abiding citizens. Ali’s mother has harmed no one, and whoever thought up this sick stunt might find themselves prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law—Texas law. IYKWIMAITYD.

UPDATE 3–The Datech Guy has another related post. If you don’t get my Casablanca allusion above, click on the video in his post.

Aaron Walker, Ali Akbar, and Stacy McCain have been among my 40+ codefendants in the various LOLsuits Brett Kimberlin has filed (and lost) against me (and them). While we’ve certainly been harassed and inconvenienced by Team Kimberlin’s [expletive deleted], we haven’t been intimidated. Indeed, we’re all going strong in our chosen activities on the Internet and in the Real World.

Meanwhile, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread has sort of petered out. The most recent thing there is a feeble jab at Ali that Bill Schmalfeldt wrote before he left for his winter vacation in Montana.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


During his first LOLsuit against me, the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance suit, The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin alleged that I had engaged in malicious prosecution against him. Part of the basis for that claim was that I had alleged in a peace order petitions and in an Application for Statement of Charges that he was connected to the Breitbart Unmasked website. When I sought evidence relating to his connection to BU during discovery, he said my request was irrelevant. The TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with his attempt to dodge answer my interrogatory.

Here’s a request for production of documents that the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin doesn’t want to honor in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance suit.InterrogReBUOn of TDPK’s alleged causes of action against me is the fact that I have Applications for Statement of Charges and peace order petitions against him based on evidence that he is one of the users of the @Breitbartunmask Twitter account and the actual beneficial owner of the Breitbart Unmasked website. This from his amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. suit.BKvAW2013 FAC-46If he has never had any communication with Breitbart Unmasked, all he would have to do is say so. Of course, that would then raise the question of how the picture TDPK took of Aaron Walker and his wife at the Howard County District Courthouse on 1 March, 2013, got published on Breitbart Unmasked that very afternoon.

I’m tempted to write that I wonder what TDPK is trying to hide, but that’s not completely true.

* * * * *

He failed to answer my interrogatory, but his assertions that it was irrelevant was part of the reason that the the malicious prosecution count was thrown out at summary judgment.

When all the crap is cleared away, breitbarttunmasked dot com is Brett Kimberlin’s website, and just like almost all of his endeavors, it’s a failure.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Four years ago, Mrs. Hoge was recovering from back surgery to repair damage done to her spine by breast cancer that had metastasized to her spine and had just begun chemotherapy for her cancer. Team Kimberlin sent her this email which I posted four years ago today.

This arrived in Mrs. Hoge’s inbox today.

Connie,

Your husband is being criminally charged with stalking a teenage girl. That’s some sick stuff. Imagine what everyone at the Forestry Board is thinking when they read the newest article about your husband’s perversions. So embarrassing. Finally people at Goddard are taking an interest in John’s mental depravity and he will more than likely be suspended, if not let go totally. You have your own insurance, don’t you? I hope so. Remember what happened when John was responsible for his own mother’s care. He had to be taken to court twice to pay her bills. Sorry that you are suffering through a disease and a terrible marriage to a perverted man with a deteriorating mental capacity. The more your friends are made aware, the more support you will receive…. right?

I suspect that Dante would have consigned whoever sent that to Bolgia 9 of the Eighth Circle.

Of course, the email was completely ineffective, as were the emails sent to Mrs. Hoge’s associates. She viewed the email as pathetic. Our friends and associates were puzzled by the emails they received, and asked what was going on. By the time I finished telling them a long story that began with “Do you remember the federal prisoner who claimed to be Dan Quayle’s dope dealer?”, they were either laughing or shaking their heads.

Failing failures gotta fail.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Yesterday’s TKPOTD took a look back to Team Kimberlin’s failed effort to use a lawsuit filed by Nadia Naffe against Patrick Frey (aka Patterico) as part of their campaign of lawfare. All of Kimberlin’s attempts at brass knuckles reputation management have failed. Meanwhile, the bloggers he sought to punish are … well, this list of world-wide website rankings tells the story.

protectourelections.org 3,060,676
breitbartunmasked.com 4,971,275

Everything is proceeding, and some are receding, as I have foreseen.

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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


For years, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread was Brett Kimberlin’s premier PR website. It conducted personal attacks upon his perceived enemies and told all sorts of specious stories attempting to sell his false narratives.

The website has been lying fallow for four months now. If the offline back up data I have is correct, this is the longest period of inactivity at the site since it hit the web in February, 2012.Perhaps The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has figured out that it really wasn’t very effective. Or perhaps he can no longer find anyone foolish enough to waste time writing for as site with vanishingly small traffic.
