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.

The mockery continues.
