Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Five years ago, The Saga of Team Kimberlin had taken a decisive turn away from The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s version of the narrative after his loss in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial. That was the first of many LOLsuit he would lose over the next couple of years. The TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with TDPK’s futile attempt to get a preliminary injunction against several of my codefendants and me in the RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is so disturbed and so desperately injured by the terrible things that Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Lynn Thomas, and I are publishing about him that he has gone on vacation to Hawaii when his motion for a preliminary injunction against us in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness is due to Judge Hazel on the 28th.

The judge has imposed some specific limits on what TDPK can file.

First, Plaintiff’s motion must be limited to the specific defendants identified in his request i.e., defendants Walker, Hoge, McCain, Thomas, and Akbar. …

 

Second, Plaintiff’s motion must be limited to specific conduct that has occurred since the filing of his SAC on June 24, 2014 and must describe with sufficient detail the exact harm caused by each specific defendant and the irreparable harm sought to be prevented by way of immediate injunctive relief.

 

Third, Plaintiff’s motion and accompanying memorandum may not exceed fifteen (15) pages, double spaced. See ECF No. 97 at 3. Plaintiff must file his motion by August 28, 2014. …

 

Fourth, Plaintiff’s motion must strictly comply with the requirements of Fed. R. Civ. P. 11, including the requirements for signatures and other identifying information contained in Rule 11(a), as well as the requirements of 11(b). Failure to comply with Rule 11(b) could result in sanctions issued by the Court sua sponte. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 11(c)(3).

Perhaps, TDPK has figured out that he can’t come up with anything that can be filed within those limitations. We’ll see. Meanwhile, Judge Hazel noted when TDPK asked for more time to file his motion that

[a] preliminary injunction is either needed or it is not. If a preliminary injunction is needed, as Plaintiff contends …, it ought to be pursued with the degree of diligence and urgency for which it was intended to serve i.e. the prevention of irreparable harm. Because Plaintiff’s proposed “wait-and-see” approach is antithetical to that purpose, the Court DENIES Plaintiff’s Request. Plaintiff must file his Motion for Preliminary Injunction no later than August 28, 2014 and in strict accordance with the requirements set forth in the Court’s July 28, 2014 Letter Order, or notify the Court that he is withdrawing his request for leave to file the motion.

Stay tuned.

I suppose that Kimberlin would have found a way to file his motion for a preliminary injunction if he had wanted it badly enough. I didn’t think he would file, and everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

Brett Kimberlin’s use lawfare to try to suppress the free speech rights of his critics was a vain attempt at brass knuckles reputation management on the Internet. As with almost everything he’s tried in his life, he failed when he tried to do more than he was capable of and when he tried to outsmart people who were experts in fields where he lacked talent and/or experience. The TKPOTD from a year ago today took note of The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin’s collapsing Internet presence.

* * * * *

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.

* * * * *

And things continue to proceed downhill at jtmp dot org. As the Gentle Reader can see in the screenshot on the left, there hasn’t been anything new posted at this website allegedly dedicated to music and politics for over six months. In fact, there’s been very little posted at the site for over two years.

However, the most striking change at the Justice Through Music Project website is that it now lacks any visible buttons, widgets, or links allowing one to make a donation. (I was able to use a URL from a backed up version of the site to find a donate button on a page that’s still on their server and tied to JTMP’s PayPal account, but there are no live links to that page.)

Follow the money? It would appear that the money isn’t streaming into Justice Through Music Project via online donations. If it ever did.

Today is the fifth anniversary of the start of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial, the first of four LOLsuits the Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin lost against me. My publication of the graphic shown in the TKPOTD from six years ago today was part of the bases for his claim that I had defamed him.

* * * * *

DredPedoKmbrlnHere’s how Brett Kimberlin described his musical ambitions to his biographer Mark Singer as Kimberlin was being release from prison in 1994 (Citizen K, p. 354).

I’m doing this for the money. I’m doing it for fun and creativity too, but it’s mainly for the money. It’s like vengeance. I can go out there and say things and reach a huge audience, and it’s a kind of revenge on all the people who hate me. Can you imagine if I have a number-one hit and I’m all over the radio—every time [former U. S. Attorney] Jack Thar turns on the radio, there’s Brett Kimberlin? Success is the best revenge. These people who wished me ill, who lied about me, made up these stories, turned me into this monster, will just turn green with envy. Every quote from Thar over the years has been “God! How can you believe this guy!” All this publicity I’ve gotten will now be working for me. My lyrics are very potent, and they’ll touch a lot of people. I see myself as being in the Phil Collins mold more than, say, in the Michael Jackson mold. I can’t be fake that way. I have to be real.

Uh, huh.

It may be that more and more people are beginning to see a certain similarity to Michael Jackson after all.

* * * * *

TDPK lost that LOLsuit because he presented no evidence (“Not one scintilla,” was the phrase Judge Johnson used.) that any thing I had said or written about him was false.

Seven years ago today, I published this post that asked Does #BrettKimberlin Know Who He Is?

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin has filed this Response in the Walker v. Kimberlin lawsuit pending in Virginia.

Note that he denies the facts set forth in paragraph 2 of Aaron Walker’s complaint.

Exactly what is he denying? That he was convicted of the Speedway Bombings? That the bombings were a terrorist act? That eight bombs were detonated in six days? That he was convicted of perjury? That he is a public figure? That he was involved in the founding of either the Velvet Revolution or the Justice Through Music Project?

All these things are matters of public record. Has he lied so much that he no longer knows his own identity?

* * * * *

Who is Brett Kimberlin?

In my opinion, he is, among other things, a loser.

And that’s the nicest thing I can say about him.

This TKPOTD first ran five years ago today.

* * * * *

I have been aware of the transaction receipt shown below since 1 February, 2014.
BK EDVA ECF 1-2The receipt will likely be entered into evidence in a coming court proceeding. Because I may be called as a witness, I have been asked by the counsel for one of the parties not to discuss publicly the facts I am aware of relating to the receipt until after that court proceeding.

* * * * *

Here’s the entire court filing containing that receipt.

The receipt appears to show that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin used funds from Justice Through Music Project to pay for an expense related solely to his personal lawsuit.

Two years ago today, The TKPOTD was about some of the most stupid questions The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin ever asked a witness during a trial or hearing.

* * * * *

I’ve been reviewing transcripts from a wide range of hearings and trials in LOLsuits and peace order petitions filed by The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. Yesterday afternoon, I was going over the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial. The second day contains a couple of my favorite moments of Brett Kimberlin as The World’s Worst Pro Se Litigant™. (That trademark belongs to Stacy McCain; I should hit his tip jar as a royalty payment.) My very favorite has to be TDPK’s attempt to examine Stacy, and the episode is real proof that one should never try to outcrazy Stacy McCain.

While it wasn’t as entertaining, Kimberlin’s biggest tactical blunder occurred while he was examining Aaron Walker.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay, now when you call me a pedophile repeatedly —

MR. WALKER: Un-huh

MR. KIMBERLIN: You must have some basis for that. Tell what you tell the jury why you know, why you think that’s true? And where is the truth, where is the evidence?

And Aaron spent the next several minutes explaining why.

Pro Se Tip—Never ask a question unless you know the answer and that it will help your case.

* * * * *

I was sitting next to Stacy McCain during this portion of the trial, and we were both having a difficult time trying not to burst out laughing at the defense table.

Ah, it’s another one of those anniversaries! Three years ago today, a big chuck of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit bit the dust.

Let me provide some background for the Gentle Readers who haven’t been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin for more than four years or so. Just as TDPK’s first RICO LOLsuit was failing in federal court, he filed a second one. It attempted to go after the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, a large law firm, and several intelligence contractors for defamation and other imaginary torts. However, TDPK had waited too long to file, and the statute of limitations had run out on any of the alleged acts. He tried to get around that problem by alleging that I was a coconspirator, and the my acts had continued long enough that the statute of limitations had not run out. That LOLsuit was dismissed by the federal court. Kimberlin refiled it in state court, but he dropped me as a defendant. It appeared he was finally beginning to understand that the legal doctrine of res judicata could be applied in my defense because of his previous failed LOLsuits against me.

Three years ago, I published one of those delightful Qapla’ posts.

* * * * *

Judge Mason held a hearing this morning on the ripe motions to dismiss in the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit. The case has been dismissed with prejudice against Hunton & Williams and the lawyers associated that firm, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Berico and its employees. The case was also dismissed with prejudice against the Palantir defendants because their situation is identical to the others. The grounds for dismissal were res judicata because Kimberlin had included me as a conspirator (even though I wasn’t named as a defendant in this case) or, alternatively, the statute of limitations if I wasn’t a member of the conspiracy—and lack of personal jurisdiction over the defendants.

The motions to dismiss for the remaining defendants will be heard on 13 September.

* * * * *

Yep, everything proceeded as I had foreseen.
