Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin is a liar and not a very good one. That’s not only my opinion. It’s shared by essentially everyone who’s investigated his tall tales and false narratives. I began writing about Kimberlin in May, 2012, and it wasn’t long before I developed my own sources of information on his mendacious past. Seven years ago today I published this post about #Brett Kimberlin and Dan Quayle and Lies.

* * * * *

This morning, I got a phone call from a friend who has had a rather interesting life. Back in his hippie days, he and his wife were traveling across the country. During that trip, they stopped in Bloomington, Indiana, to crash with one of his ex-girlfriends. This happened around Thanksgiving in 1972.

While they were staying there, they were introduced to a young kid who was dealing drugs named Brett Kimberlin. My friend remembers the name, and he recognized Kimberlin’s picture when he saw it some years later during the Speedway Bomber era.

My friend and his wife were also present when Marilyn Quayle dropped by to introduce her new husband. (The Quayles were married on 18 November, 1972.) Apparently, my friend’s ex and Mrs. Quayle were friends. It was clear to my friend from the way the introductions went that this was the first time that the Quayles and Kimberlin had ever met.

Brett Kimberlin claimed that he sold dope to Dan Quayle on multiple occasions from 1971 to 1973. If what my friend tells me is true, and I have no reason to doubt him since these and other details of his story check out with other sources, Brett Kimberlin lied about Dan Quayle. That conclusion is also consistent with the DEA’s investigation of his claims.

So we have a convicted perjurer caught in another lie. Whoda thunk it?

The Gentle Reader may wonder how I was able to find such a connection so quickly. It was pure luck. You see, I used to live in Indiana, and in the late ’70s I was courting the young lady who became Mrs. Hoge while she was a student studying audio production at Indiana University and working in the music scene in Bloomington. As a result, I know some very interesting people who were in Central Indiana during the late ’70s.

Facts are stubborn things.

In many ways, we are known by the company we keep. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with some of the people and organizations The Dread Deadbeat Protestor/Protector Kimberlin was working with.

* * * * *

One of the subsidiary operations of Brett Kimberlin’s 501(c)4 Velvet Revolution US is called Chamber Watch. On Chamber Watch’s Action Items web page (No, I won’t link to it.), there’s a description of an alliance of organizations and individuals engaged in attacking the U. S. Chamber of Commerce.

Velvet Revolution and it [sic] staff, including journalist Brad Friedman, along with SEIU, reporter Glenn Greenwald, Change to Win and ChamberWatch

That’s an interesting bunch.

Brad Friedman is the co-founder with Brett Kimberlin of VRUS. He is the left coast anchor of the group and a “respectable” public face.

The SEIU is the Service Employees International Union which enhanced its reputation for violence by sending purple-shirted thugs to confront tea party rallies. SEIU founder Wade Rathke was a cofounder of ACORN.

Glenn Greenwald? Yep, that Glenn Greenwald. The one who writes for The Guardian.

Change to Win is a coalition of labor unions formed in 2005 as an alternative to the AFL-CIO; it consists The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Service Employees International Union, United Farm Workers, and United Food and Commercial Workers. All of these unions have a history of violence and/or corruption.

Thugs partnering with left-wing “journalists” to attack big business, but to what purpose? Did I mention that there’s a Donate button on each webpage?

More recently, TDPK has been focusing on election integrity. That change in interest may have some connection the The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin losing a couple of LOLsuits related to his tiff with the Chamber of Commerce. Indeed, his work during the 2016 elections with Ukrainian interests connected to the Democrats’ National Committee appear to have been so … um … rewarding that in 2017 he changed the corporate name of VelvetRevolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. (empr dot media is an English-language Ukrainian news site hosted on the same server as the now-seemingly-abandoned Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.)

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Today is the fourth anniversary of the false criminal charge filed against me by the Kimberlins being dropped because there was no evidence to support their allegations. Their criminal complaint was filed alleging that I had engaged in online harassment of Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter by writing truthful things about Brett Kimberlin on the this blog and Twitter after both the District Court and Circuit Court had denied a peace order petition against me based on the same allegations. Four years ago today, I ran this post titled And In Other Legal News.

The Montgomery County State’s Attorney has entered a nolle prosequi on the bogus criminal charge filed against me.NolleProssed20160624That case is now resolved in my favor. The companion charge filed against Aaron Walker has received the same disposition.

And three years ago today, I ran this post titled Another One Bites the Dust.

Yesterday, the Maryland Court of Appeals published the list of petitions for writs of certiorari it has denied for the month of June. Here’s an extract from the list.Cert denied 20160625This was The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s attempt to appeal the affirmation by the Court of Special Appeals of the defendants’ win in the Circuit Court, and it keeps his batting average perfect at .000.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

I’m not done with the Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin yet.

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.


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.


* * * * *

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.

The TKPOTD for six years ago today must have really bothered The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin. It’s the only post here at Hogewash! that I’m aware of with more down twinkles than thumbs up.

* * * * *

There are some things that are so far out in the ozone that you couldn’t make ’em up if you tried. I found this in Brett Kimberlin’s bio on his personal website (No, I won’t link to it.).

Brett has also been passionate about protecting the rights of minorities by exposing bigots, hate groups, and bullies.

Exposing bigots, hate groups, and bullies, huh?

I don’t know about you, but I class anti-Semites as bigots. Brett Kimberlin’s anti-Semitism is well documented.

I don’t know about you, but I count those who have a history of cowardly attacks among the bullies.

And would you say that an organization (Koch Watch, NIWLTI) that promotes hatred based on a greedy desire to appropriate the fruits of the success of others might be a hate group?

Is Brett Kimberlin trying to expose himself?

* * * * *

I apologize for any poor mental image that may have been caused by that last question.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin’s false narratives often are attempts to project their motives and actions on to their perceived enemies. The TKPOTD for five years ago deals with one example.

* * * * *

This is one of the key allegations that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin makes in his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 100-145That’s not true.

In fact, Ali Akbar did file the appropriate paperwork with the IRS concerning National Bloggers Club and it’s 501(c)(3) status, and he has received the confirmation letter from the IRS. National Bloggers Club is a recognized 501(c)(3) entity.

TDPK’s crude attempt to smear Ali has run aground on the truth.


* * * * *

One significant difference between Brett Kimberlin and those of us who have been truthfully reporting about his activities is that he always makes his allegations in protected fora such as court filings. We, OTHOH, publish in the clear where we can be held accountable.

Oh, and speaking of projection and 501(c)(3) status, the Protect Our Elections website operated by Kimberlin’s Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. not-for-profit still falsely claims that the entity has 501(c)(3) status and that donations to it are tax deductible. The IRS lists the organization as having 501(c)(4) status. IANAL, but it appears that donations to POE/EMPR should only be deductible as business expenses rather than charitable donations.

The Gentle Reader may make up his own mind as to whether POE/EMPR’s claims constitute fraud.
