Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Probably the least competent and most mockable member of Team Kimberlin is the musician wannabe William Ferguson. The TKPOTD from four years ago today dealt with one his failed predictions of the direst of dire direness that was supposed to befall me.

S_A201605121243ZNow, that’s an interesting turn of phrase.

* * * * *

Later that day, I put up this post—Bombshell Du Jour?

* * * * *

I wonder if this is what Ferguson thinks is his “bombshell”?S_A201605130550ZThose are the forged tweets that Brett Kimberlin attempted to use as evidence during the District Court hearing for the peace order he sought against me last year. Those fakes have been debunked (go here for details), and the doubling down by Breitbart Umasked Bunny Boy Unread on a defamatory story that included them is one of the bases for the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.S_A201605130553Z

If I had been lying about those tweets during the District Court hearing, one would expect that they would have been offered again during Kimberlin’s appeal to the Circuit Court along with additional backup evidence developed during the two month delay. That didn’t happen—perhaps because Kimberlin knew that I could prove that I was not the source of the tweets. My lawyer had the necessary evidence sitting in a folder ready to be introduced if needed.

The Team Lickspittle EOD crew was sent to disarm Ferguson’s “bombshell” over a year ago. It turned out to be a dud.

* * * * *

I seems like everything Team Kimberlin has touched since the Turn of the Century has been a dud.

The mockery continues.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin started his campaign of lawfare in an attempt silence his critics. He sought to use civil suits, peace orders, and false criminal complaints to punish those who reported on his past and ongoing activities and to intimidate others from writing about him as well.

There were several major defects in his plan. One flaw was the fact that court proceedings are matters of public record except when rarely sealed for a few very limited purposes. Thus, his LOLsuits became matters for public reporting and mockery. Six years ago, I reported that #BrettKimberlin Haz Sad because he couldn’t conceal his filings in the RICO Madness LOLsuit.

* * * * *

After turning the stupid knob up to 11 12, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin sent a proposed sanctions motion to Michael Smith, the lawyer representing Michelle Malkin and Twitchy in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. Now, he’s whining because his foolishness was made public. He seems particularly upset that Hogewash! posted a copy of his proposed sanctions motion.

It seems that TDPK has not yet realized that civil trials are conducted in public here in America and that he is not entitled to a secret Star Chamber proceeding against his intended victims. If TDPK can’t stand the heat, he should get out of the kitchen.

Tune in just after midnight for further commentary on TDPK’s latest filings.

UPDATE—Aaron Walker comments here.

* * * * *

The Gentle Reader can find that further commentary here. I noted in that further commentary that “Brett Kimberlin had made a terrible mistake by suing my four codefendants and me in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit. He doubled tripled quadrupled down on stupid when he upped the ante and sued my twenty codefendants and me in the RICO Madness.”

His biggest mistake was suing me. I’m not done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Given the low traffic rankings of the Kimberlin-related websites, I suspect that my occasional checks on them have been a noticeable percentage of their views. During one of my visits back in 2014, I noticed an interesting lack of coverage of one story, and I wrote about it six years ago today in a post titled Justice for Boko Haram.

* * * * *

As I was scrolling through the past year’s blog posts at the Justice Through Music Project website, it struck me that there was no mention of the abduction of several hundred schoolgirls by the Boko Haram terrorists. Surely, justice requires that the kidnapped girls be released rather than sold into slavery.

OTOH, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is fond of accusing several his perceived enemies as being anti-Islamic. Perhaps he is unwilling to denounce Islamic terrorists. Or perhaps …

* * * * *

Later that day, I ran this additional post—I’m Sure It’s Just a Coincidence …

* * * * *

… but a rather odd one. Within hours of a post here at Hogewash! pointing out the lack of any protests against the Boko Haram abductions in Nigeria on the Justice Through Music Project website, that site is down for a redesign.JTMP_backsoonThe Velvet Revolution US site is also being redesigned.

Hmmmmm.

Uh, huh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I began reporting on Brett Kimberlin when he managed to get a judge to issue an unconstitutional gag order against a blogger. Because he seemed to be trying to silence his critics by filing legal actions against them, I began referring to him has Lord Voldemort (“He who must not be named”). After he put up a rather lame pirate-theme website to support his lawfare, I began mocking him as The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. That, in turn, morphed into The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin after he sued me. When he failed to pay the court costs and sanctions due me, the mockery changed, and he’s now The Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin.

Of course, I not the first creditor he’s stiffed. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today is about what happened when he failed to pay another court judgment.

* * * * *

When he was in prison, Brett Kimberlin was transferring money from his commissary account to someone outside the prison. A prison case manager tipped off Mrs. Delong (who Kimberlin then owed and still owes over 1.6 million bucks plus interest) who obtained a writ of attachment on the commissary account. And so the guy who now brags about having filed over a hundred lawsuits sued lots of folks for violating his privacy rights. Here’s what the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals had to say [Kimberlin v. U. S. Department of Justice, et al., 788 F.2d 434 (1986)].

Brett Kimberlin, a prisoner, initially filed a one-count complaint claiming that a disclosure by his prison case manager Leddy to his probation officer Gahl that plaintiff was sending money outside the prison from his commissary account violated the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552a. The original defendants [The defendants named in the original complaint are the Department of Justice, Office of U.S. Attorney (S.D.Ind.), Bureau of Prisons, Sandra DeLong, Paula Kight, Patrick Leddy and three Assistant U.S. Attorneys (S.D.Ind.), namely, Richard Darst, Jack Thar and Kennard Foster. The defendants named in the amended complaint are: the Bureau of Prisons; the Department of Justice; the Parole Commission; Patrick Leddy, former case manager of plaintiff at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago; Thomas Gahl, a U.S. probation officer in the Southern District of Indiana assigned to the criminal case against plaintiff; Sandra DeLong, widow of Carl DeLong who was allegedly injured by plaintiff’s explosive device, and Paula Kight, lawyer for Mrs. DeLong.] moved to dismiss, contending that the Privacy Act had not been violated because the disclosure was permitted as a routine use under the Act. Kimberlin then asked to file an amended complaint. The motion was continued while the parties briefed whether or not the amended complaint would cure the defects in the original complaint. The district court’s order dismissing the action refers only to the proposed amended complaint. Kimberlin v. United States Department of Justice, 605 F.Supp. 79, 81 (N.D.Ill.1985).

The amended complaint continued to assert the Privacy Act violation, naming the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) as additional defendants. An additional two counts alleged that disclosure of the information to private citizens violated plaintiff’s constitutional rights to privacy and due process and that a conspiracy existed among the individual defendants to violate his constitutional rights. Kimberlin seeks compensatory and punitive damages as well as costs and attorneys’ fees.

The district court dismissed all three counts of the proposed amended complaint, holding, inter alia, (1) there was no violation of the Privacy Act because the routine use exception of 5 U.S.C. § 552a(b)(3) applied; (2) the Bivens due process action failed because no property interest had been lost; (3) the Bivens privacy claim failed because Kimberlin did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in his commissary account; and (4) the conspiracy count failed because no constitutional violation occurred.

For the reasons discussed above, the order of the district court dismissing plaintiff’s action is affirmed.

Kimberlin’s unwillingness to pay what he owes Mrs. Delong has been quite expensive. Indeed, it was a cause of the revocation of his parole in 1997.

* * * * *

Kimberlin was willing to spend four years in a federal prison rather than make any effort to meet his obligations to Mrs. DeLong. I wonder how much he’ll be willing to go through to avoid paying what he owes his more recent victims.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Four years ago today, I published The RICO Retread LOLsuit Complaint. That case was The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s attempt to salvage the Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuits after it had been dismissed from federal court.

After losing two other state cases against me (res judicata being one of the reasons he lost the second time), TDPK dropped my from his list of defendants. He had kept me in the second federal RCIO nonsense in an attempt to skirt the statute of limitations which had otherwise run out on most of the other defendants.

* * * * *

Here’s what The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed—

Since I’m not a party, I’ll be fisking some of this in some follow up posts.

* * * * *

One of the obvious problems with that LOLsuit was that he was seeking relief not only for himself but also for third parties not in the case. Which third parties? Why, Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution US, corporate entities that required representation by a lawyer.

BTW, Res Judicata coffee mugs, t-shirts, and other goodies are available at The Hogewash Store.

The TKPOTD from five years ago today contained an image that had been sent to me by Kimberlin Umasked.

* * * * *

It’s May the Fourth …Everything is Proceeding

* * * * *

That cartoon got so deeply under Brett Kimberlin’s skin that he questioned me about it when he called me as a defense witness in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

Q   Do you ever post graphics or photos of you as a Star Wars Hero?

A   I have, people have sent me graphics of my face to replace, who’s the guy that played Obi-Wan Kenobi, the older fellow? This is what happens when you’re old. Alec, Sir Alec Guinness with my face instead of Alec Guinness’ as Obi-Wan in, in various cartoons. I think they’re funny, and I’ve, I’ve posted a few that have sent me, and other people have, have picked up on that, as well, and sort of run with it. It’s a, it’s, it’s kind of a running gag now in certain corners of the internet.

The jury’s reaction to that exchange went almost exactly as the Gentle Reader might have foreseen.

 

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The TKPOTD from five years ago today looks back at how I started writing about Team Kimberlin.

* * * * *

I’ve been writing about The Saga of The Dread Pirate/Pro-Se Kimberlin since May, 2012. Back then, he had a unconstitutional gag order in place against Aaron Worthing, and I referred to him as Lord Voldemort (“He Who Must Not Be Named”). Over the last three years, I written quite a bit about TDPK and his associates, but there is a lot information that I’ve held back.

Some of it is held back to protect otherwise innocent third parties.

Some of it is held back because I deem the material unsuitable for this blog.

Some of it is held back because the time for divulging it is not yet ripe. However, the time for some things may be approaching.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

Will more come out? Probably. I’m not done with him yet.
