Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the interesting things I’ve seen over the course of the legal wrangling with Team Kimberlin has been the change in Brett Kimberlin’s demeanor in court as the cases proceeded. I first mentioned that change in the TKPOTD that ran six years ago today.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has been trying to sell his false narrative about being assaulted by Aaron Walker in the Montgomery County Circuit Courthouse for over three years. The existence of security camera footage proving that Kimberlin is lying has made it impossible for the allegation to get any traction in court, but that doesn’t seem to keep him from trying. This is from his new Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO2 LOLsuit.R2 ECF 1-58collateral estoppel t-shirtThe previous state and federal court rulings on the matter mean that he’s barred from making any further such claims by collateral estoppel (Gotcher Hogewash! Collateral Estoppel goodies here!), but TDPK keeps bringing it up. (Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result is … )

BTW, the bit about being assaulted is not the only falsehood flat-out lie in that paragraph. The “medical records” that TDPK provided to me during discovery for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit were not the same as the ones he used in court in 2012. At least one set was likely forged. Also, I’m not “Paul Krendler.”

I’ve watched Brett Kimberlin in courtrooms for almost three years. I’ve seen him change. As the courts have begun to take his measure and understand that he is untrustworthy, his confidence has dropped. Over the same period, the assertions he makes in his court filings are becoming wilder. I suspect that he understands that he is losing. Perhaps he sees himself as Leonidas making a last stand, but it may be that he’s more like Tom Powers.

We’ll see.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

When Kimberlin’s lawfare campaign was just getting underway, he threatened to sue Patrick Frey with these words:

I have filed over a hundred lawsuits and another one will be no sweat for me.

Well, the last bunch certainly did make him sweat, and he lost them all. I doubt he’ll ever make that threat again.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It should not be surprising when a convicted perjurer is caught lying. This Prevarication Du Jour from seven years ago today dealt with a whopper The Dread Deadbeat Perjurer Kimberlin included in a court paper filed in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is seeking a preliminary injunction in the Maryland Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit which would require us defendants to take down every post since 7 July, 2013, that mentions him. We defendants have filed oppositions to his motion, and TDPK has filed his reply to our oppositions. In his reply he cites comments on this blog as proof that the defendants are inciting violence against him.BKvAW2013Reply2PIOpp-3So there you have it. Comments on this blog are as intimidating as burning a cross on someone’s front lawn.

Acme Law at its finest.

* * * * *

Hogewash! is just a bush league blog, but it has a significantly greater web presence that all of the Team Kimberlin web outlets combined.

Brett Kimberlin’s grandiose schemes fail because of his delusions of adequacy.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was four years ago that Brett Kimberlin found himself mentioned in a national news story about one of the early attempts to use fake documents to attack the Trump Administration. Four years ago today, that provided More Brett Kimberlin News here at Hogewash!.

* * * * *

The Daily Caller has a piece up that looks into Brett Kimberlin’s connection to a former Democratic National Committee official and the forged documents recently debunked by BuzzFeed.

Hmmmm.

* * * * *

Kimberlin provided at least $ 9,000 in funding for the acquisition of those fake documents. That’s a lot of money for someone who pays himself only $ 19,500 from his “charity.” Where did that money come from? The Gentle Reader’s guess may or may not be as good as mine, but the exact source remains unproven.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Pointage, laughery, and mockification have been strong elements of the coverage of Team Kimberlin’s lawfare here at Hogewash!. Five years ago today, Bill Schmalfeldt’s shenanigans in LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler resulted in this I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post.

* * * * *

Given that every single paragraph of the declaration by Brett Kimberlin filed as an exhibit with the Cabin Boy’s™ motion to disqualify Aaron Walker as defense counsel in LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler contains at least one provable lie, …Cheddar201603090233Z… the lack of self-awareness is … well, it’s about average for the Cabin Boy™.

* * * * *

Oh, what a tangled web gets woven when a perjurer tries to uphold his “sterling” reputation.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It seems that Brett Kimberlin is trying to catch up with the paperwork for one of his surviving not-for-profit entity. For many years, Jeffrey R. Cohen was the Executive Director and Resident Agent for Justice Through Music Project. However, when I attempted service of process on JTMP through Mr. Cohen almost five years ago, it appeared that he was no longer associated with the organization, and by 2017, it appeared that he was no longer a resident of Maryland. Last month, Brett Kimberlin filed a notice with the State of Maryland changing JTMP’s principal office address from the house formerly owned by Jefferey Cohen and making himself Resident Agent.

BTW, the “Jefferey Cohen” signatures on the Form 990s filed with the IRS in 2016 and 2017 do not appear to match the “Jefferey Cohen” signatures on Form 990s filed in 2015 and earlier. However, the signatures on the earlier IRS filings do match the “Jefferey Cohen” signature on the Justice Through Music Project Corporate Charter.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was just a year ago today that Brett Kimberlin lost yet another court case as reported in this TKPOTD.

* * * * *

Note: This post was originally set for 12:02 am ET on the 4th, but I’m putting it up a few hours early.

Back in 2018, Brett Kimberlin filed a civil case in the Southern District of Indiana seeking to vacate some of his convictions related to the Speedway Bombings. Last Friday, Judge Tanya Walton Pratt denied his petition. Eugene Volokh has some commentary here.

I’ve included the judge’s order below. She quotes Kimberlin as having claimed:

For example, because these convictions bear on the issue of fraud, Petitioner is unable to apply for or receive government grants

Oh, really?

Isn’t the petitioner the same Brett Kimberlin who claimed that my codefendants and I in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) RICO Madness LOLsuit had interfered in his relationship with the State Department and its International Visitor Leadership Program? Yes, it is, but if you look very carefully at his filings in his LOLsuits against me, he never explicitly claims that either Justice Through Music Project or he was an actual State Department contractor, and when I filed a FOIA request for the any contracting details, the State Department said they had nothing on record.

Hmmmm.

Oh, one more thing … Kimberlin was represented by counsel in this case. Perhaps he’s been taught a lesson about his pro se skills.

* * * * *

Here’s another quote from that order:

But because he has been convicted of multiple felonies in separate trials, including a 1974 perjury conviction in this Court, Case No. IP 73-cr-132, and the 1979 conspiracy to distribute marijuana conviction in Texas, (as referenced in Kimberlin, 805 F.2d at 225), neither of which are at issue here, a successful challenge to any one conviction will not relieve him of these impediments. See United States v. Keane, 852 F.2d 199, 205 (7th Cir. 1988) (“a single felony conviction supports any civil disabilities and reputational injury [a convicted felon] may have to endure”).

The only person who ruined Brett Kimberlin’s reputation was Brett Kimberlin.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has been associated with shady Democratic Party operatives at least since 1988 when he first lied about being Dan Quayle’s dope dealer. One of those connections surfaced during coverage of the Russian Collusion Hoax and was the subject of the TKPOTD for three years ago today.

* * * * *

After years of frivolous litigation involving multiple LOLsuits (I’ve been a defendant in four of ’em and a bogus peace order petition), The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has been singularly unsuccessful. And now his name is back in the news because of his association with Cody Shearer, the creator of the anti-Trump “Dossier No. 2.”

J. E. Dyer writes about the Shearer/Kimberlin connection in a post over at Liberty Unyielding.

Shearer, besides being a major piece of work in general, played a key role during the George H.W. Bush years, and the first Clinton campaign for the 1992 election, in hyping Brett Kimberlin’s claim that he (Kimberlin) had sold pot to then-Vice President Dan Quayle, years before when Quayle was younger.  Shearer had known Kimberlin for years, in other words, and used his (Shearer’s) journalistic pulpit to retail a politicized narrativeon Kimberlin’s behalf.

But although BuzzFeed and Daily Caller both cite unnamed sources affirming Kimberlin’s marginal role in the “Russia” narrative assembled separately in 2016 (again, Kimberlin denies it), what really completes the circle is Cody Shearer’s membership in the Shearer family, whose ties to the Clintons, including his own, could hardly be closer.

Read the whole thing. And also checkout this post over at The Weekly Standard.

* * * * *

The Weekly Standard is no more, but that link is still active; the post has been achieved by the Washington Examiner.

Given the way Kimberlin’s activities went silent just before the election, one wonders if he’s been told that he’s outlived his usefulness.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the recurring features related to Team Kimberlin has been posts titled Prevarication Du Jour. The post were usually about one of stupid lies being spun by Bill Schmalfeldt, but a few dealt with the utterances of The Dread Deadbeat Perjurer Kimberlin. The PDJ for seven years ago today was one of those.

* * * * *

In October, 2010, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a bar complaint against my RICO codefendant Patrick Frey. (Patterico is a lawyer and serves as a Deputy DA in Los Angeles County, California.) In that complaint TDPK cites a section of a California government Guide to Employee Conduct and Discipline. The boldface type is in TDPK’s original complaint.

Section ( w ) prohibits “[u]nlawful discrimination, including harassment, on the basis of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, sex, or age, against the public or other employees while acting in the capacity of a State employee. Covers all acts of unlawful discrimination and harassment by an employee against a member of a protected gtoup, under the auspices of State employment. Acts could be against employees or members of the public.” I am considered as having a disability because of my status as a felon. I have not committed any crime for more than 31 years and have worked hard to be an outstanding member of societysince my release from prison many years ago. Yet Mr. Frey is using his hate blog to harass, bully, defame, investigate and stalk me, with the intent to cause violence against me and ruin my ability to earn a living. He is taking advantage of my disability to target me, and using his official position as a Deputy District Attorney to give credibility to his savage attacks against me.

I’m not making that up. TDPK claimed that he is disabled because of his felony convictions. Of course, there are certain legal “disabilities” that come with being a felon. Felons can’t possess firearms. They can’t vote in some states. But those are not the kind of disabilities mentioned in regulations or laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The comment section is open for mockery.

* * * * *

That kind of stupidity is a mental and moral handicap. IANAL, but I’m pretty sure that it isn’t a disability in any legal sense. Of course, Kimberlin’s stupidity have often led him into both civil and criminal legal problems.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin is a perjurer. He was convicted of perjury before he turned 20, and he has continued to make false statements under oath. In January, 2013, I ran a series of post dealing with the lies he told in court during the the early days of his lawfare campaign. The post from eight years ago today was Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Perjury 10.

* * * * *

On 29 June, 2012, there was a hearing in Montgomery County District Court for a peace order petition that TDPK had filed against one John Norton. Brett Kimberlin was in his usual form. While I don’t have an official transcript of the hearing, Aaron Walker has transcribed portions from audio that he obtained from the court.

TDPK claimed that Mr. Norton had been lurking in the bushes in front of the Kimberlin residence. In the transcript below K is Brett Kimberlin and J is the judge. TDPK said that he was going to pick up his 8 year old daughter from a neighbor’s house—

K: And so I walked out of my door, to go pick her up, and I see a man lurking behind the bushes in the corner of my property and I was kind of taken aback by it. But I kept walking toward my car because I had to pick my daughter up.

J: Now was that in the general direction of where the man was in the bushes or in the opposite?

K: The man was facing the road, the— to the left of the— on the left side of my house there’s some bushes towards the road and my car was right in front of my house.

Lurking in the bushes? As I type this, I’m looking at the Google Street View image of the Kimberlin residence. Looking from the street, there’s a small shrub that appears to actually be on the property next door by the neighbor’s driveway. It’s “on the left” as seen from that point of view. There’s also a even smaller shrub at the opposite front corner of the Kimberlin lot. It appears to be about as tall as the fire hydrant in front of it. I’m not sure how one would lurk in those bushes.

K: And so I turn around, obviously I was concerned about my daughter. You know, I didn’t know if anything had happened to her, I was scared, so I turned around and I went to the neighbor’s house. She was right there in front of the house. I put her in the car and Mr. Norton is driving away, and so I—

J: Have you ever seen this man before?

K: Never seen him before in my life.

J: Every seen the car before?

K: Never seen the car before.

J: Alright.

K: So I followed the car, and went around the corner, and there was a stop light. I pull up behind him and he’s… again it’s a convertible, and he reaches around with a camera, again, and takes more pictures of me. I gave him the finger, I admit it, you know, I don’t like a guy coming out in front of my house taking pictures of me and my kid.

He’s concerned that this lurker might be dangerous, so he puts his daughter in the car and chases after the guy.

Uh, huh.

So what was Mr. Norton’s side of the story? In the transcript below N is John Norton and L is his lawyer.

L: Did there come a time when you ended up coming into contact with Mr. Kimberlin?

N: Not any physical contact, but he did chase me down in his car, the picture he showed, shows him behind me, flipping me off. I don’t know why he chose to chase me down. I was not on his property, I have stopped my car on [Kimberlin’s street name omitted].

L: What brings you on [Kimberlin’s street]?

N: It is a bail out route on my commute.

L: And where is your commute?

N: I commute between Bethesda, Maryland, and Fairfax, Virginia.

Chased him down?

L: And on June… what’s the date here? June 15, is it? June 15, you said, what brought your attention— what caused you to take out your phone and take a picture of the car behind you?

N: When I was on River Road, I saw what turned out to be Mr. Kimberlin’s car driving erratically, cutting in and out of lanes, trying to catch up to me, tailgating me. We reached the stoplight at River and Burdette, he pulled up… you can see how close in the picture, how close it was. He… he pulled out a pen and [unintelligible] furiously scribbingly as if he wanted me to know he was writing something down, he was revving the engine in his car, and for me, I thought, “some crazy person is chasing me down, I need some evidence, I need some protection.” So I picked up my phone and shot about seven seconds of video, from which the picture of him flipping me off was taken as a framegrab.

TDPK claimed that he was freaked out when Seth Allen reposted the picture of him flipping off Mr. Norton.

K: The picture of my car, that was posted on the internet by the client of the man that I had the peace order against. So I get kind of freaked out that, you know, this guy is somehow related to the guy who I had a peace order against, Mr. Walker.

Note that Mr. Allen could not have posted the photo before or during TDPK’s chase of Mr. Norton. In any case, Mr. Norton had no association with either Mr. Allen or Mr. Walker.

L: Now, are you associated with Aaron Walker, any [sic]?

N: I am not.

L: Okay. And, did you go to his house on June 15, to take pictures, get out of your car and take pictures?

N: I did not go to Mr. Kimberlin’s house. I did not get out of my car. I did not take pictures at his house.

L: Alright. And what caused you to post the picture of Mr. Kimberlin flipping you off on the internet?

N: Well, first of all, for protection to make sure that it was publicized, that someone had chased me down and was flipping me off. And also, honestly, I thought it was kind of funny.

We have two different stories. One is told by a reputable citizen with nothing more that traffic tickets on his record, and that story is corroborated, at least in part, by other evidence. The other is told by a convicted felon, one of who’s crimes is perjury, and that story is contradicted by other evidence. Who would you believe?

So we have the records of nine appearances before judges in Montgomery County, and each appearance has something hinky about TDPK’s testimony. Some of his tales are, perhaps, merely flakey. Some are clearly false, but the State’s Attorney has given TDPK a free pass.

John McCarthy has not yet answered the letter I sent him asking about his decisions to refrain from prosecuting Brett Kimberlin for perjury. Fine. I’m not one of his constituents. Maybe he will have to explain his decision in 2014 when he’s up for reelection.

UPDATE–Spelling error corrected. @&#$ing autocorrect.

* * * * *

Lying liars gotta lie.

BTW, in 2016, a District Court Commission found probable cause to charge Kimberlin with perjury for statements made in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, but once again, the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office dropped the charge.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin tried running his election protection scams for over a decade, and was able to gin up support from interesting sources. This post, Velvet Revolution US: Bigger Than It Seems?, from eight years ago today deals with funding he received from the Threshold Foundation.

* * * * *

The above extract from the 2008 annual report of the Threshold Foundation describes Velvet Revolution US as

… an online activist organization of 154 affiliate organizations and 18,984 members.

The 35 kilobucks in funding was supposed to be for an “Election Protection Strike Force.”

Uh, huh.

<mockery>One wonders if one of the “affiliate organizations” is a real estate enterprise offering to sell bridges to most of (say, 18,980) the “members.”</mockery>

* * * * *

Of course, it is absolutely false to say that Velvet Revolution ever had more than a handful of members. I’m not sure how such claims are categorized in the not-for-profit world, but in engineering we would refer to them as a lies.

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin is also The Dread Deadbeat Perjurer Kimberlin.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I’ve made a point of posting as much as possible of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s legal filings. His first lawfare attack on me occurred in July, 2013, when he filed a false Application for Statement of Charges against me alleging that I has stalked and harassed him. Because the State’s Attorney’s Office dropped the charges and sought to have them expunged, I wasn’t able to see exactly what Kimberlin had claimed until I was able to get the case unsealed. (I needed it unsealed so that I could sue for malicious prosecution.)  I finally got around to publishing his bogus allegations four years ago today.

* * * * *

While I’ve been preparing discovery requests for the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, I noticed that I’ve never published the Application for Statement of Charges that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed against me in 2013. Last November, I petitioned the District Court to be allowed to inspect and have a copy of the case file. Now that the expungement has been vacated and anyone can get a copy, I might as well post it. Here’s the case docket as I received it last November.

TDPK has said that he asked for the expungement. As the Gentle Reader can see, it was the State’s Attorney’s Office who asked for the expungement, not Kimberlin.

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus.

* * * * *

The Application for Statement of Charges was signed under penalty of perjury. The Gentle Reader should not be shocked that a convicted perjurer would perjure himself again.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Someone connected with Kimberlin’s It’s Time 2020 operation woke up and decided to post something to the itstime2020 dot org website on 2 October. With all of the stories available, the best thing that the poster could find to write about was Brad Parscale’s mental breakdown. Really? That’s the big news of the election since the last post on 28 August?

Whatever.

BTW, Kimberlin wound up losing all of his defamation lawsuits because what had been written and said about him was true, so you’d think that he’d understand that it’s false statements that can be defamatory. Yet, the itstime2020 dot org post ends with these words about Brad Parscale: “… and he worked with Russia and Cambridge Analytica that year [2016] to manipulate the presidential election.” Given the thorough debunking of the Russian Collusion Hoax, unless there’s some evidence to back that statement up, it looks as if it’s being made with a reckless disregard for the truth. Gentle Reader, do you suppose a convicted perjurer would do such a thing?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Before he tried and failed at suing me, Brett Kimberlin tried and failed to have me charged with several crimes. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today describes what happened to those bogus charges.

* * * * *

The Gentle Reader who has been following The Saga of The Dread Pedo Kimberlin over this summer may remember that in late July he filed bogus harassment charges against Aaron Walker and me apparently for publishing true information about him and for attending open court proceedings where he was a party.

In my case, the charges were facially false because they covered a time period before I had anything to do with Brett Kimberlin.

Normally, when charges are filed and a District Court Commissioner finds there is probable cause, a summons or warrant is issued. The online court records showed that a summons was issued in my case, but I was never served. A trip to the Commissioner’s Office in Rockville revealed there was some sort of hold placed on the case and that the Application for Statement of Charges was not available. A later trip to the District Court Clerk’s Office revealed that the paperwork was at the State’s Attorney’s Office with a note on the file that the charge would be nolle prossed. The charge was dropped, and the records have been expunged. I won’t be able to find out exactly what TDPK claimed I did with the records expunged.

That’s good news and it’s bad news. The good news is there is now nothing on my record.

The bad news is that because there’s nothing on my record, I probably don’t have standing for a civil suit.

And there may be some other good news. It looks as if the justice system in Montgomery County has figured out who they’re dealing with when Brett Kimberlin tries to file charges, a serial liar who can’t lawfully testify in a Maryland court to any accusation he makes.

* * * * *

The State’s Attorney’s Office may have thought that they were doing me a favor by having the charges expunged, but they were wrong. I had to go to court to get the record unsealed so that I could sue Kimberlin for malicious prosecution. I would have let the matter lie, but the Kimberlins filed a second set of false charges against me in 2015, so I decided that some pushback was in order.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It seems to me that the real reason that Brett Kimberlin has engaged in his effort to use lawfare as a means of brass knuckles reputation management is that, although he doesn’t appear to be ashamed or feel any remorse for the things he has done, he does seem to understand that most people don’t approve of the things he has done. Thus, he would prefer that his past and much of his present actions remain hidden.

One of the things he tried to cover up was the perjured complaints that Tetyana Kimberlin and he filed against Aaron Walker and me alleging that we had harassed her elder daughter. Kimberlin filed a motion to seal the complaint and lied to the court about serving us with copyies of the motion, but he got caught in his lie when the court sent me a copy of its ruling denying the motion. The TKPOTD from four years ago today provides more detail.

* * * * *

A few weeks ago, I posted this motion to seal the records of the State v. Walker and State v. Hoge cases in which Aaron Walker and I were falsely charged with online harassment of a minor. The perjured Applications for Statement of Charges were filed by Tetyana Kimberlin, and the motion purports to bear her signature.

Neither Aaron nor I were served a copy of the motion. I found out about it when I received the copy shown above from the District Court showing Judge Wolfe’s denial of the motion. I later received service of the State’s response to the motion as well.

Aaron also received a copy from the District Court. Even though the judge has already denied the order, he filed an opposition to the motion to seal in order to make certain the case records would be available as evidence in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

Even though Tetyana Kimberlin’s motion was denied on 11 July, the Kimberlin’s filed this “Reply to Defendant Aaron Walker’s Motion to Unseal, and Motion for Sanctions” on 8 August.

popcorn4bkThis yet another example of Brett Kimberlin’s increasing panic. The motion before the court was not one from Aaron to unseal. It was Tetyana Kimberlin’s (nominally) motion to seal. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin now has so many cases to track that he can no longer keep them straight.

Also, at no point in his bizarre filing does TDPK actually ask the court to impose any sanction on Aaron.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

BTW, look at what is purported to be Tetyana Kimberlin’s signature on the original motion. Now, look at her signature on the reply to Aaron Walker.

Forging forgers gotta forge.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Here’s a post from seven years ago today about my picking up a new follower on Twitter. Based on evidence that has come to light since 2013, I believe that Follower No. 394 was Brett Kimberlin.

* * * * *

Heh.BU_Follows_me

And I’m Follower No. 21 over at RadioWMS.

UPDATE—Or I was until Cabin Boy Bill blocked me.

UPDATE 2—The Sore Loserman seems to think that the peace order prohibits me from following his blog, or something like that. Of course, he has the right to block me, but I have the right to read what he publishes. Believe it or not, he is an occasional source of useful information.

* * * * *

I discussed one of the bits of evidence that leads me to believe that the Brett Kimberlin was the operator of the (at)BrietbartUnmask account a few weeks ago at the end of this post.

Of course, Kimberlin has denied any connection with Breitbart Unmasked. He’s also denied (under oath) that he ever had his parole revoked. The Gentle Reader may form his own opinion concerning Kimberlin’s credibility.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This TKPOTD from six years ago today explains how Brett Kimberlin came to be referred to as The Dread Pirate Kimberlin.

* * * * *

bot_logoThose Gentle Readers who haven’t been following the Saga of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin since last summer may not understand the piracy references. One of the organizations that raised money to help defray the legal expenses for the Virginia and federal Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuits last year was the Bloggers Defense Team. Team Kimberlin responded with a piracy themed website called the 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.

UPDATE—From Bill Buckler’s The Privateer via Zero Hedge:

No tyrant on any level can handle derision, it deflates them utterly by reducing their stature to its proper level in a way which they cannot escape.

Yep.

* * * * *

As part of the continuing ridicule of TDPK, his other activities also came under the banner of dreadness—The Dread Pro-Se/Prerormer/Protector/Protestor/Pedo/Publisher/etc.—but as he failed to pay the sanctions and court court due after his campaign of lawyer, Dread became Deadbeat.

He’s now the Deadbeat P______ Kimberlin. The Gentle Reader may insert his word of choice.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Seven years ago today, I published this post title Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin, Braggart. The quote from Citizen K describes Mark Singer’s take on what drives Kimberlin to spin his false narratives.

* * * * *

Mark Singer devotes Chapter 35 of Citizen K to the differences between TDPK’s tall tales and reality. He describes how TDPK told of a raid during which the narcs announced themselves by yelling, “Open up! Open up! DEA!” The raid in question occurred before the DEA was formed. Back then, the federal narcs were the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

Mr. Singer continues:

There were similar stories whose only corroborating witnesses were dead or otherwise unavailable—Kimberlin’s tale, for instance, of being robbed by a junkie in Bloomington when he was sixteen years old. The specifics of that one never struck me as especially plausible—a hundred pound kid wrestling a .38-caliber gun from a junkie—but it was virtually impossible to prove it a fabrication. What mattered about such vignettes was their portrayal of a fearless, at times even heroic, protagonist. The tale-teller was a short fellow who needed to be looked up to, who consistently sought relationships with females much younger than himself, who could boast to an eighteen-year-old woman he’d just met on the bus that he was “one of the strongest men in the world.”

The phrase a legend in his own mind seems appropriate.

* * * * *

Yep. Singer nailed it.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One thing for sure about Team Kimberlin is that they’re a bunch of liars—and incompetent liars who wind up easily caught. Indeed, Brett Kimberlin’s first conviction was for perjury about his LSD dealing. It was seven years ago today that this post about A Liar Selling Drugs first ran.

Continuing with our recent Dread Pirate Kimberlin v. Reality theme, let’s take another look into Chapter 35 of Citizen K by Mark Singer. The Gentle Reader who is familiar with TDPK knows that his first jail term was for perjury during grand jury testimony related to selling LSD.

In 1992, when Kimberlin told me that he trafficked only in marijuana and hashish—besides cocaine just that once—he stated emphatically that he had never sold LSD. “I don’t remember ever selling any hallucinogens. I mean, it’s possible, like, five hits of this or that. But it’s not in my memory base.” He also said, “I’ve never even seen amphetamines.” Yet the same court transcript contained his testimony that he had dealt in small quantities of LSD and methamphetamine. He had bought amphetamines and given them to this girlfriend, he said, because she was trying to lose weight.

Kimberlin exploited the fact that [David] Pacific and [John] Buckley were arrested on drug charges in October 1971, when according to a report in the Indianapolis News, more than $20,000 worth of laboratory equipment was confiscated. But in a 1994 meeting, Pacific told me the “laboratory equipment” was actually vegetable-canning paraphernalia plus a few flasks and petri dishes … the by-product of his and Buckley’s failed experiment to synthesize psilocybin. They had never, he maintained, tried to manufacture LSD. Why go to the trouble when the finished product was so accessible at the cost of about seven cents a hit?

“So you and Buckley weren’t making acid?”

“Oh, no. Good heavens, no,” said Pacific—a quaint-sounding denial that encouraged me to check with the prosecutor, Scott Miller, a former assistant U. S. attorney who’d headed the Bureau of Narcotics “strike-force grand jury,” stated that Pacific and Buckley weren’t manufacturers of LSD but mere jobbers. Though Miller suspected that Kimberlin was one of their suppliers, he opted to pursue a perjury indictment rather than a drug indictment. The government’s general impression was corroborated by Tim Young, who told me that Brett was his source in several “multithousand-hit deals.”

“I probably sold fifty to seventy-five thousand hits of acid in my life, over a year and a half period,” Young said. “Purple microdot and orange sunshine are the two I remember. How much of it from Brett? All of it. I don’t remember buying acid from anyone but Brett. He sold it to me about ten thousand hits at a time. If he said he never sold acid, he’s a lying [redacted]. Guarantee.”

Isn’t it amazing how much of TDPK’s narrative seems to be contradicted by other witnesses, court transcripts, and the like?

I used to work in Indiana. FWIW, I met both David Pacific and John Buckley on separate occasions before the Speedway Bombings occurred. Based on my personal knowledge of them and what I have also learned from mutual acquaintances, I’d be much more inclined to believe them, especially David Pacific, that The Dread Deadbeat Perjurer Kimberlin.

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.

Heh.

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.

Hmmmmm.

* * * * *

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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I believe I’ve mentioned in the past that Brett Kimberlin is a liar. In fact, as a check my notes, I see that I brought that up in the TKPOTD for five years ago today.

* * * * *

Here’s a real gem from a pleading The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness called “Plaintiff’s Response to Defendant Hoge’s Two Latest Filings.”ECF 49-1Well, duh! Given that one of the recurring features of this blog is called Team Kimberlin Post of the Day, nay a day does go by that I don’t write something about the malfeasance of Brett Kimberlin or one of his associates. The problem with TDPK’s allegation is that I accuse him of things that he as actually done.

For example, he’s a perjurer. He was convicted of that crime when he was a teenager, and his recent lies are well documented. He testified during the damages hearing in his lawsuit against Seth Allen that he had never had his parole revoked. He’s a forger. He’s admitted to forging the summons sent to Twitchy in the RICO Madness. He’s admitted to altering at least one Certified Mail green card related to service of process in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance suit. There’s documentary evidence that he’s altered several more.

He’s a liar. And not a very good or very smart one.
