Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin has a long history of making inflated claims about the effectiveness and reach of his not-for-profits Consider the howler detailed seven years ago today in a post titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin’s Extended Crew.

* * * * *

During the damages hearing for the Kimberlin v. Allen lawsuit back in November, 2011, TDPK said the following under oath concerning one of his “charities”:

The other organization is called Velvet Revolution. And Velvet Revolution is a, it’s an organization that has over 150 organizations affiliated with it nationwide, with a membership base of over, over a million people …

That’s one heckuva following. Gentle Reader, do you think it’s real?

Me neither.

* * * * *

In 2017, Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. While the empr dot media Ukrainian news website still appears to be a going concern, the protectourelections dot org website has only rarely been updated over the past year. The PayPal donation link goes to dead account, and has been like that for a while.

While VRUS may have tried to “affiliate” with 150 or so other groups, few, if any, of the connections were two-way. If Kimberlin were able to exploit “over a million people” as potential donors, the POE website’s PayPal link would be too valuable to allow it to be out of service.

It’s almost as if Kimberlin was lying.

From time to time, someone asks me why I refer to Brett Kimberlin and his helpers and enablers as “Team Kimberlin.” The TKPOTD from six years ago offered this explanation.

* * * * *

I’ve been asked why I began using the term “Team Kimberlin” to describe The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin and his band of thugs. It seemed descriptive, and “Insane Clown Posse” was already in use.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Today is the seventh anniversary of an altercation outside of Courtroom 9D in the Montgomery County Circuit Courthouse which led to Brett Kimberlin’s false claims that he had been assaulted by Aaron Walker. The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin sought to use that imaginary assault as the basis of a peace order against Aaron, and a court hearing his petition found that no assault occurred.

TDPK has continued to use his story of being assaulted by Aaron as a part of various civil suits, submitting apparently inconsistent medical records in those cases. None of Kimberlin’s lawsuits claiming that Aaron assaulted (or battered) him survived a motion to dismiss.

He also included his story of the imaginary assault sending him to the hospital in the 2013 Application for Statement of Charges that he filed against Aaron. When Aaron sued for malicious prosecution, the jury found that Kimberlin had lied about being sent to the hospital.

Perhaps the biggest problem TDPK has had in peddling his tale is the existence of security camera video of the incident which shows that Aaron did not “deck” him as he initially claimed. Of course, the existence of contrary documentary evidence has rarely been a barrier to Kimberlin’s outrageous allegations against his perceived enemies, and I doubt that a jury’s finding that he lied about his “assault” will no more squelch his telling the tale that did the judge’s finding almost five years ago that no assault occurred.

When Brett Kimberlin launched his campaign of lawfare as a means of brass knuckles reputation management, he set himself up for one of the biggest failures of his career. The rest of Team Kimberlin has been similarly unsuccessful, but none of them as spectacularly as Bill Schmalfeldt. Six years ago today, his ineptitude led me to ask What Does the Cabin Boy Have in Common with OJ?

* * * * *

OJ was acquitted at his murder trial. Bill Schmalfeldt had the first set of criminal charges relating to his harassment of me dropped. Both beat the rap as criminals.

OJ was found to be responsible for the death of his wife and was adjudicated a murderer in a civil trial. Bill Schmalfeldt was found to be responsible for my harassment and was adjudicated a harasser in a civil trial.

A civil adjudication does not bring the same penalties as a criminal conviction, but it is a finding by a court. Bill Schmalfeldt is an adjudicated harasser. His appeals related to that matter have been exhausted, and that finding has not been overturned. None of his whining will change the legal fact that he is an adjudicated harasser.

* * * * *

Of course, Brett Kimberlin went into his lawfare campaign having already been convicted of perjury, drug smuggling, bombings, and other crimes. His poor legal strategy of suing for defamation resulted in a court ruling that he was “defamation proof.” In other words, a court found that his reputation was already so bad when my codefendants and I wrote about him that it was impossible for us to damage it.

One of the things that trips up Brett Kimberlin time and again is his inattention to details. The TKPOTD from five years ago cites one example.

* * * * *

Here’re the damages that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is seeking in his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 135-DamagesThere are several things wrong with that. First, consequential damages are awarded for the failure of a party to meet a contractual obligation. I have never entered into any contract with Brett Kimberlin, and, so far as I know, neither have any of my co-defendants. Even if he could prove his case, he wouldn’t be entitled to consequential damages.

The really big screw up is in the amount of money sought. Take a close look at the decimal point in the amount claimed. It reads, “two comma zero zero zero point zero zero zero.” That’s only two thousand bucks.

Upon reflection, comparing Brett Kimberlin to a Yugo is unfair, and I herby apologize to Yugo.

Well, finally!

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has gotten around to something “new” at ptotectourelections dot org. It’s a repost ripoff of an article from Politico that tries to tie some buggy election software used in North Carolina during the 2016 election with Russian hackers.

The Gentle Reader may remember that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se/Protector Kimberlin testified under oath in October, 2016, that he and his band of top-notch hackers were working with the DoJ to secure the 2016 elections. He mentioned hacking by the Russians.

If the Politico story is correct, it shows an example of TDPK’s failure to fully protect our election that year. OTOH, Hillary Clinton managed to get 78.9% of the vote in Durham County, so maybe TDPK doesn’t care.

Oh, look! TDPK has added a PayPal donate button to the site, but it turns out that it’s another example of his lack of attention to detail—it’s connected to a PayPal account that’s been closed. The NationBuilder link still takes you to a page that falsely claims that POE has 502(c)(3) tax exempt status. The organization used to have 501(c)(4) status, but that was revoked by the IRS several months ago.

The never-ending parade of silly mistakes made by The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin and The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt in their various LOLsuits have yielded a gold mine of pointage, laughery, and mockification. Here are some bits from the TKPOTD, a Legal LULZ Du Jour, and a Bonus Legal LULZ Du Jour from four years ago today.

* * * * *

I’ve been rereading some of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s recent filings in the five active lawsuits in which he is a party. (BTW, four are LOLsuits he’s filed against me.) His writing is becoming … how to put this? … wilder and more full of stupid errors and omissions. I just finished reviewing something from one of the state cases, and its fatal error is both obvious and quite stunning. I won’t write about that mistake here because it’s the judge’s job to educate the midget on this one.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has a DOOM CLOCK running over at his Derp Brain Radio website (No, I won’t link to it.) that shows 32 days remaining for the return of waiver of service forms he says he’s sent to the defendants in LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler.

Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(3) says—

A defendant who, before being served with process, timely returns a waiver need not serve an answer to the complaint until 60 days after the request was sent[.]

Even if the waiver request forms had been sent the day the LOLsuit was filed, there would still be 54 days remaining for the defendants to respond. But I suppose following the Rules is hypertechnical. And math is hard.

UPDATE—Or perhaps it means that the Cabin Boy™ is exercising his option to allow at least 30 days but less than 60 days for the return of the waiver forms. Whatever. Setting the minimum time for return of the waiver forms won’t change when any answers or dispositive motions are due.

popcorn4bkUPDATE 2—The Cabin Boy™ has a post up “correcting” this one. I checked his “correction” with a lawyer, and I’ll wait for Schmalfeldt to find out the hard way how wrong he is.

Oh, and I see from his post that he’s still too afraid to include me in his LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has yet another post up over at his Derp Brain Radio website (No, I won’t link to it.) in which he demonstrates his poor reading comprehension and his poor knowledge of the legal resources I have at hand. Given his track record, it’s possible that he has come up with a novel way to screw up service of process. We shall see.

popcorn4bkAs I noted earlier today, The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s fear of having to face me in court will keep me out of LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler, at least for the nonce, and I expect that the amended complaint [redacted]. All this means is that he’s surrendered his chance to control the actual venue after [redacted]. Meanwhile, I get to sit on the sidelines and point and laugh.

Heh.
