Bonus Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD from two years ago today dealt with one of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits that wasn’t aimed at bloggers.

* * * * *

In the first paragraph of the Complaint in the Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al. LOLsuit (that’s the one in which he’s suing the Senators McConnell and Grassley for not moving the Garland nomination to the Supreme Court through the confirmation process), The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin says that part of his duties at Justice Through Music Project is to file lawsuits to vindicate his own personal rights. That suit was dismissed for lack of standing by the U.S. District Court, and it’s now on appeal at the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

I suspect Brett Kimberlin sees sticking his nose into the Garland nomination controversy  as an opportunity to stir up some donations for his not-for-profits, and the JTMP website has a post on the issue.JTMP_judicial_vacancyNote that the post, which has been up for several weeks, has not generated a single comment. That’s unsurprising. Not one of the posts shown on the JTMP Home Page has elicited any comments. Again, that’s not surprising given how little traffic the site generates.

fruitcakeThe odds are that more people will read this post today than will visit the JTMP website this month. I probably never would have written a word about Brett Kimberlin if he hadn’t engaged in his campaign of brass knuckles reputation management and got that unconstitutional peace order against Aaron Walker, and Aaron wouldn’t have been involved if Kimberlin hadn’t engaged in shutuppery against Seth Allen. I wonder—does Brett Kimberlin ever wish he had ignored what Seth Allen was writing?

One of the ways that The Dread Deadbeat Protester Kimberlin has tried to raise money off the Internet was via a website called Pussy Riot Defense Fund. Reading the fine print on the website carefully told one that the donations raised wouldn’t go to the direct support of the Russian female rock band but would be used to help defray the cost of Justice Through Music Project’s publicizing the band’s legal hassles.

The Justice Through Music Project home page still has a link to the pussyriotdefensefund.org website. I’ve left the link live so that the Gentle Reader can click on it for himself to see that the site is gone. Indeed, the registration for the domain expired a year ago today.

It’s beginning to look as if The Dread Deadbeat Protestor Kimberlin has pretty much given up on maintaining an effective presence on the Internet. His websites are not being well maintained, and his web presence is shrinking.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Four years ago today, I posted the following TKPOD in the aftermath of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit. I deals with The Dread Deabeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s treatment of his wife’s elder daughter during the trial.

* * * * *

I’ve been listening to the courtroom audio recordings as part of my preparation for the next part of my Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. in Review series. Since those recording are used to product the trial transcript, they include the conversations between the judge and counsels at the bench. I could not hear them in the courtroom because a noise source is turned on by the judge to mask the conversations. Thursday evening was the first time that I became aware of the following:

Brett Kimberlin called his older daughter as a witness. He did so at the end of the presentation of his case. He tried to do so as his first witness, but our lawyer objected. During the interchange at the bench, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin said that he wanted her to testify to various things which the judge felt were inadmissible because her testimony would be hearsay. TDPK also said he wanted her to testify to the fact that he had not done anything untoward with her. That would have been admissible, but my lawyer agreed that we would stipulate that so there was no reason for her to be called. During the conference at the bench, Judge Johnson remarked,

To put your 15 year old daughter—talk about —talk about harm—to put a 15 year old kid in a courtroom in front of a jury and ask her questions about pedophilia!

Just before he called her, the judge called the counsel up to the bench and tried one more time to dissuade TDPK from calling his daughter.

THE COURT: You know the witness you really need?

KIMBERLIN: Huh?

THE COURT: Is your wife here?

KIMBERLIN: She’s, she’s packing. We’re leaving on vacation tomorrow—

THE COURT: Is she gonna testify? See, that’s —if she were going to testify, that would be one thing, but a 15 year old?

TDPK put her on the stand any way.

* * * * *

It was one of the most callously abusive things I have ever seen done to a child.

One of the continuing whiney themes in The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits is that the defendants mock him. Well, yes, we do. Here’s an example of some pointage, mockery, and laughification directed at him and his RICO Retread LOLsuit. It was first posted at the TKPOTD three years ago today.

* * * * *

This is from paragraph 46 of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s opposition to the motions to dismiss filed in the Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit.Opp2MTD_46That’s not completely truthful. Yes, I do taunt TDPK. Yes, I mock his lawfare, including the RICO Retread LOLsuit, every day. But, no, I’ve never asserted that I’m going to get TDPK imprisoned. That’s not my call. If it happens, it will be the work of a judge and/or jury or the Parole Commission.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


As was mentioned on The Other Podcast yesterday evening, today is the fourth anniversary of the conclusion of the first of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuit against me, the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit. Here’s the post from four years ago today the announced Game Over!

* * * * *

We win, and Brett Kimberlin loses!

UPDATE—We did not put on a defense. Judge Johnson ruled that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin did not present evidence of the torts he was alleging, and he ruled in our favor as a matter of law after TDPK rested his case.

UPDATE 2—I’d like to offer my thanks to all of you folks who have offered your prayers and encouragement. I’d like to thank Patrick Ostronic, who provided Aaron, Stacy, and me with a pro bono defense. Thanks are also due to Ken White for putting up the Popehat signal on our behalf and to Glenn Reynolds for the Instalanche of Ken’s post that alerted Patrick to our plight.

UPDATE 3—Instalanche! Thanks again, Prof. Reynolds, and welcome, Instapundit readers. BTW, the Blogfather is correct in his estimation that one of Brett Kimberlin’s biggest mistakes was trying to outcrazy Stacy McCain.

UPDATE 4—Mrs. Hoge and I have just returned home from a celebratory dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Walker. Aaron will be home later tonight. I suspect that he will have a blog post reviewing the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit up later tonight or tomorrow.

UPDATE 5—Night Shift Politics [dead link] points out that stupid is as stupid does.

UPDATE 6—Popehat comments here.

TDPK tried three other LOLsuits, a peace order, and two sets of false criminal charges against me. Everything proceeded as I had foreseen, i.e., everything he has tried has failed.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


11 August, 2014, was the opening day of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial. That case was the only of all the Team Kimberlin LOLsuits to go to trial. All the others were killed off by motions to dismiss or motions for summary judgment. In reviewing the posts from that day, I found two I want recycle. The first is a Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign episode that actually dealt with a The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

ANNOUNCER: From Westminster, it’s time for—

SOUND: Skype rings once.

JOHNNY: Johnny Atsign.

CALLER: (Telephone Filter) Mr. Atsign, my name is Steve. I’m a fan of your show.

JOHNNY: Hello, Steve. What can I do you?

CALLER: (Telephone Filter) Well, you could check for a DM from me in your Twitter account.

JOHNNY: Oh?

CALLER: (Telephone Filter) Yes. I believe you’ll find the link it contains intriguing.

MUSIC: Theme up and under.

ANNOUNCER: The Lickspittle Broadcasting System presents W. J. J. Hoge in the transcribed adventures of the man with the action-packed Twitter account, America’s fabulous free-lance Internet investigator …

JOHNNY: Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign!

MUSIC: Theme up to music out.

JOHNNY: The following is partial extract of the tweets sent and received during my investigation of Short-Fused Dud Matter.

JOHNNY TWEETS: (SYNTH VOICE) Hey, @Stevethefan, thanks. That does seem intriguing.

JOHNNY: An anti-First-Amendment activist called The Bomber had filed suit against a small group of bloggers in a Maryland state court. He claimed that they had conspired to stalk, harass, and defame him by writing truth things about his past and present activities. When that didn’t sufficiently intimidate them, The Bomber sued them along with almost 20 other bloggers and media organizations in a federal court, this time claiming that the larger group was a racketeering enterprise set up to harass and defame him.

Some of the bloggers he sued are anonymous. The Bomber didn’t know who he was really suing, and, therefore, he didn’t know who to serve with the various court papers.

He’s tried various methods of identifying those bloggers. In the case of the blogger known as Top Gun, he has been singularly unsuccessful. But that’s not from lack of trying.

SOUND: Typing on keyboard. Mouse clicks.

JOHNNY: My caller’s DM contained a link to the case number of The Bomber’s federal RICO suit, but with a twist. The suit had been filed in the District of Maryland, but the link led to the Eastern District of Virginia. Sure enough, the case was docketed there too.

SOUND: Typing on keyboard. Mouse clicks.

JOHNNY: Well, well, well … It seems that he’s gone fishing in a new pond. This is worth sharing.

SOUND: Telephone handset picked up. Number dialed. Phone ringing (Caller’s POV).

PRO BONO: (Telephone Filter) Pro Bono.

JOHNNY: Johnny Atsign here, Counsellor. I’ve got something to show you online. Can you login to PACER?

PRO BONO: (Telephone Filter) Actually, I’m logged in now. What’s up?

JOHNNY: I know you’re only handling the state case, but you want to take a look at The Bomber’s RICO suit.

PRO BONO: (Telephone Filter) I do that from time to time. Has he filed something new?

JOHNNY: Yeah, but you need to look in the Eastern District of Virginia for it?

PRO BONO: (Telephone Filter) Really? Let’s see … Yeah, there is something there … Uh, huh … He’s filed subpoena request to try to get information about Top Gun. That’s interesting, but Top Gun isn’t one of my clients.

JOHNNY: I know, but look at attachment 2.

PRO BONO: (Telephone Filter) Wow! I don’t believe that.

JOHNNY: Yeah. He’s screwed up big time. That receipt for the filing fee shows that it was paid by a check drawn on the account of the not-for-profit he works for.

ANNOUNCER: Here in Westminster, we’re having those pleasant summer evenings when it’s nice to sit on the porch and sip a cold drink while listening to crickets and watching the lightning bugs. I’ve been sipping mine from a Res Judicata travel mug. It’s just one of the goodies exclusively available for you to spend your hard-earned cash on at The Hogewash Store. Stop by today, and spend some cash to support Team Lickspittle. You can also show your support by hitting the Tip Jar or buy doing your Amazon shopping via the link on the Home page.

SOUND: Skype rings once.

JOHNNY: Johnny Atsign.

PRO BONO: (Telephone Filter) Hey, Johnny, we finally got discovery from The Bomber.

JOHNNY: How incomplete is it?

PRO BONO: (Telephone Filter) It’s pretty spotty. He really doesn’t seem to understand the rules of evidence and what it takes to prove something in court. But I called you to let you know that he did give us an answer to that document request you suggested.

JOHNNY: Evasive, huh.

PRO BONO: (Telephone Filter) Uh, huh. The same sort of off-topic answer he gives when he’s pinned down in court. We asked him to provide copies of any payment records from his not-for-profits that covered any expenses in any lawsuit against one of my clients. He responded that there was no such payment in the state suit.

JOHNNY: Technically true—the payment was in the federal case—but still a lie by half-truth.

JOHNNY TWEETS: (SYNTH VOICE) @TheBomber, quid est veritas?

MUSIC: Theme up and under

ANNOUNCER: Now, here’s our star to tell you about next week’s intriguing episode of our story.

JOHNNY: Next week? Who knows? We may be at the denouement. Join us, won’t you?

Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign!

MUSIC: Swell theme and under

ANNOUNCER: Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign, starring W. J. J. Hoge, is transcribed in Westminster. Be sure to join us next Monday, same time and URL, for the next exciting episode of Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign.

MUSIC: Theme up to music out.

ANNOUNCER: Johnny Atsign is a work of fiction. If anyone thinks it’s about him, he should read Proverbs 28:1.

Be sure to tune in every Friday at 6 pm Eastern Time for a episode of Blognet or Blogsmoke on alternating weeks. This is LBS, the Lickspittle Broadcasting System.

The second post deals with a comment I received here at Hogewash! after I got home from the courthouse. The comment contained some rather Unfriendly Advice.

Of course, it was an empty threat. I’d have to wait until the next day for my day to be made, non-violently.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


From time to time, I repost information about how Brett Kimberlin came to be known as The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin. This is what I posted on the subject four years ago today.

* * * * *

bot_logoSome of the newer followers of The Saga of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin may wonder why he is called that. The nickname descends from an earlier one—The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. That came about after he put up a spectacularly unsuccessful pirate-theme fundraising website called Bloggers Offense Team. I found Kimberlin’s choice of the pirate-related logo at left is interesting. Pirates aren’t semi-sympathetic, comedic characters from a Johnny Depp movie. They are criminals. Was the mask slipping?

That got me to thinking … While Brett Kimberlin’s unconstitutional peace order prohibiting Aaron Walker from blogging about him was in place, I had taken to referring to Kimberlin as Lord Voldemort (“He who must not be named”). Why not a piracy themed nickname? The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. I used it, and it stuck—not only with my readers, but other bloggers began using it occasionally too.

As fans of The Princess Bride know, The Dread Pirate Roberts 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.

TDPKThe 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 The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s legal acumen seems to be as fictional as The Dread Pirate Roberts’ existence. And no one is willing to surrender to The Dread Pirate Kimberlin.

* * * * *

Kimberlin’s repeated failure to pay the judgments and sanctions he owes have led to Dread being struck through and replaced with Deadbeat. His failures at almost everything he’s tried have led to other words being used in place of Pirate and Pro-Se. As a musician, he’s The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin. Given his string of unread websites, he’s The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin. As a result of all the false narratives he’s tired to spin against his enemies, he’s The Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin. And so it goes.

Failing failures gotta fail.
