The TKPOTD from six years ago today debunks one of Brett Kimberlin’s more outlandish lies from this RICO Madness LOLsuit.
* * * * *
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin finds it incredible that a group of bloggers would nominate someone for an award for coverage of TDPK’s attacks on bloggers and their First Amendment freedoms. This is from the second amended complaint for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.That defendant would be me.
I didn’t win. Stacy McCain won for his coverage of the Free Kate brouhaha. Now that I think about it, I wonder if TDPK is jealous because the coverage about him lost out to a story about the statutory rape of a 14-year old girl?
UPDATE—The allegation that I have attacked Kimberlin’s family has no basis in fact, nor has TDPK ever produced any evidence of such an attack. To the contrary, a close reading of this blog will show that I have been supportive of his wife and have made an effort to keep her children and his mother and siblings out of the story as best I can.
* * * * *
All I will say about Team Kimberlin’s attacks on my family is that many of them were so disgusting that I’ve never soiled this blog by writing about them.
One of the claims that Brett Kimberlin made against my codefendants and me in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit was that we had defamed him by calling him a pedophile. All of the defendants had expressed a belief that Kimberlin is a pedophile or stated that there was evidence for that to be a reasonable opinion. We based our opinions in part on a sworn criminal complaint filed by Kimberlin’s wife. During the Kimberlin v. Walker trial, Judge Johnson pointed out to Kimberlin that the witness he needed to show that our statements were false was his wife, but he didn’t bring her to court.
The TKPOTD from four years ago today explains why he kept her off the witness stand in 2014—something he wasn’t able to do in 2016.

The following question was asked and answered during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial after an extended discussion at the bench. Judge Mason allowed it over Brett Kimberlin’s objection because it could show that Aaron Walker had a reasonable basis for writing what he had written.
MR. WALKER: The question was: You first had sex with your husband before you turned fifteen. Correct?
MRS. KIMBERLIN: Yes.

When faced with the possibility of a perjury charge if she contradicted her previous sworn statement, Tetyana Kimberlin told the truth.
I received this comment—They really are panicking.

Dance is an art form closely related to music. Perhaps it’s because Justice Through Music Project website hasn’t been updated for more than a year-and-a-half that we’ve seen no comment about the movie Cuties from JTMP, but you’d think that the controversy surrounding the exploitation of young girls in such a film would have elicited some sort of comment from that organization. After all, it’s corporate charter says that its purpose is “to shed light on some of the injustices in the world with the power of music.” (Really. I’m not making that up either.)
Of course, that purpose includes only “some” of the injustices in the world, so maybe exploiting children for kiddie porn isn’t on the list. Or it could be that the Director of Justice Through Music Project doesn’t believe that what happened to those 11-year old girls was unjust.
Or he might be too busy failing at protecting another election. As of 10 pm ET Sunday evening—
At the end of August, 2013, Brett Kimberlin made the worst mistake in his campaign of brass knuckles reputation management via lawfare: He sued me. One of his claims in that suit was that I had defamed him, and one of ways he alleged that I had defamed him was by calling him a pedophile. Seven years ago today, I published this TKPOTD.

Words have meaning.
pe·do·phile noun \ˈpe-də-ˌfī(-ə)l, ˈpē-\
: one affected with pedophilia
pe·do·phil·ia noun \ˈpe-də-ˈfi-lē-ə, ˈpē-\
: sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object
Brett Kimberlin objects to being called a pedophile. Let’s consider the evidence.
When Brett Kimberlin was trying to get a music career going during his first parole back in the ’90s, he wrote and recorded a couple of songs, Teen Dream and Waiting to Meet. Both are about having sex with underage girls. Kimberlin said this about Teen Dream—
I say things a lot of people are afraid to say. Yeah, Teen Dream is about fucking a teenage girl. Every guy who’s seen a good-looking teenage girl has thought about it.
OK, that was especially true when we men were teenage boys ourselves. It’s a more-than-a-bit weird fixation for a guy in his forties as Kimberlin was at the time.
During that same period, Brett Kimberlin married his wife. Subtracting her date of birth from the date shown on the marriage license shows that she was 16 years old at the time, that is, she was an underage teenage girl. Perhaps Brett Kimberlin will be able to convince us that they had a purely platonic relationship, but the natural assumption would be that they had a sexual relationship.
Being married to a child may “legalize” the relationship, but it does not change the child’s age. Brett Kimberlin was attracted to a teenage girl who he took as his wife while he was writing and recording songs such as Teen Dream. Gentle Reader, is it unreasonable to see that as an unhealthy preference for sex with underage girls?
I can’t publish everything that I have been told about Brett Kimberlin. A great deal of it is privileged information that may or may not come out at trial, but that information reinforces the conclusion that Brett Kimberlin is attracted to underage girls.

Is Brett Kimberlin a pedophile? I’ve never explicitly said he is or he isn’t. I’ve said that I understand why someone would believe he is, and I’ve said that the level of confidence that I have in my opinion that he probably is approaches my confidence in Newton’s Laws of Motion.
Kimberlin sued me for defamation, alleging that one of the ways I defamed him was by falsely calling him a pedophile. He lost that lawsuit and three others because he could not offer any evidence that what I said was false. Indeed, his first case was so flimsy, that the judge stopped the trial when Kimberlin rested his case and granted my defendants and me a directed verdict in our favor. We didn’t even have to put on a defense. None of the subsequent suits made it past motions to dismiss.
Some of the privileged information that I was unable to share in 2013 has come out over the years. None of it has been good for Kimberlin’s reputation, and in 2015 and 2016, a court granted motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted in one Kimberlin’s defamation suits because his reputation was so bad that he was defamation proof.
Meanwhile, I’m not done with him yet, but it looks as if Twitter is. As of 10 pm ET Friday evening, the @itstime_2020 account still had no followers.
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.

Here’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.
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.
Yesterday, I posted about how the statute of limitations applied to any Maryland case that might be based on Christine Ford’s allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. I’ve had an inquiry about why the State of Maryland would treat one Brett K. differently from another Brett K. Specifically, the question has been raised about why the statute of limitations would apply to Ford’s allegations against Brett Kavanaugh but did not apply to the allegations of third-degree sexual offense against Brett Kimberlin in 2013.
The answer is timing. The Baltimore Sun piece I referenced in my earlier post notes that the law changed in 1996, and it seems that at least some of the acts alleged against The Dread Deadbeat Pedo Kimberlin occurred when the new law was in effect.
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.

Some 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.
The 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.
