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.
Six years ago, Bill Schmalfeldt was off on a Kimberlin-is-Hoge’s-white-whale tangent. The Cabin Boy™ was apparently triggered by a graphic which I believe was created by Kimberlin Unmasked and that appears to have really gotten underneath The
Dread Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin’s skin. Indeed, TDPK sent me a copy of that graphic during discovery in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. case as evidence he planned to use for his defense in that lawsuit.The TKPOTD for six years ago today was my response to the Cabin Boy’s nonsense.

Pip Bill’s latest idée fixe is that I’m obsessed with Moby Brett. If that were the case, I’d have added one of these to my gun collection by now.Image Credit: Stahlkocher (GNU Free Documentation License)

I hear that those things are a bit of overkill on manatees.
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread is in one of its dormant phases now, but when it’s publishing, it’s a primary source for Team Kimberlin’s false narratives and lies. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today spotlighted one of the howlers told by Matt Osborne when he was hiding behind the nom de cyber of Xenophon. (Note: Xenophon was a famous Greek general, and Matt Osborne is a mediocre historian and a soldier who couldn’t manage to get promoted to Sergeant in ten years.)
* * * * *
Xenophon the Troll is channeling the Amazingly Inaccurate Criswell again over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) This time the nonsense has to do to with First Mate Neal Rauhauser’s attempt to gen up some sort of connection between the Kimberlin Unmasked identity and a real person.That’s an ambitious undertaking—foolhardy, because there’s nothing to find—but it’s ambitious. You see, Team Kimberlin has already run afoul of the GIGO principle: garbage in, garbage out.
OK, what do I mean by garbage in? Consider these bits of data:The account_id is the correct one for @Kimberlinunmask. However, the login time is on 24 December, 2013. The @Kimberlinumask account was suspended on that day, and it’s not possible to login to a gulaged account.
While it’s not quite as obviously stupid a submitting two versions of the same document to the same court in the same case or as mind-bogglingly crude as failing to remove a PACER legend and using the wrong typeface to create a do-it-yourself court summons, it is … well … it’s kinda amateurish.

The incompetent navigation guiding The
Dread Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin’s ship of fools keeps running aground on the Rocks of Reality. The Truth is not their friend.
It seems that even people who want to believe Brett Kimberlin eventually figure out that he’s a liar. This post from six years ago today titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin, Storyteller was taken from Kimberlin’s authorized biography.
* * * * *
From listening to him in court, reading his court filings, and viewing his web sites, it seems to me that TDPK is making stuff up as he goes along. Mark Singer came to a similar conclusion in his book Citizen K. The following is from a section that begins at the bottom of page 335.
I came to this conclusion:
The Quayle story was Kimberlin’s most successful creation, the invention that propelled him further than any other. Someone he knew, but not Kimberlin himself, had either sold or claimed to have sold pot to Quayle—and he appropriated this for himself. …
I spent four years asking questions about Kimberlin, and along the way I never met a soul who could offer genuine corroboration of the fable that brought his to my attention in the first place.
Brett Kimberlin is a storyteller, a teller of tall tales, but not a very good one. He sometimes has trouble remembering what he said to whom when. Of course, if one tells the truth, that’s less of a problem.

Lying liars gotta lie.
Brett Kimberlin was tagged with the nickname “The Dread Pirate Kimberlin” back in 2012 when he created a pirate-themed website for his Bloggers Offense Fund. He’s since been referred to as The Dread Performer/Publisher/Prevaricator/Protestor/etc. Kimberlin, and after he failed to pay court sanctions and fees that he owes for the frivolous LOLsuits and appeals he’s waged, “Dread” became “Deadbeat.”
For the past year or so, the
Dread Deadbeat [insert word beginning with P] Kimberlin appears to have been trying to keep a lower public profile since losing every one of the LOLsuits he filed between 2012 and 2016. He may have learned that pro se litigation is an ineffective method of intimidation against a defendant determined to stand up for his First Amendment rights.
Just because he’s been trying to fly below the radar doesn’t mean that he hasn’t been observed. Interesting things may unfold this year.
Meanwhile, here’s an image that has appeared from time to time at Hogewash! to illustrate the results of Team Kimberlin’s activities. It sums up TDPK’s career—
It’s Festivus, a holiday that came to the world’s attention on a television sitcom that was about nothing. Festivus strikes me as the perfect winter holiday for atheists, and since The
Dread Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin has claimed to be an atheist, I’m gonna give him today off.
One of the reasons that I have ridiculed The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin is that his behavior has been ridiculous. It has been all along as was described in this post from six years ago today titled The Unique Criminal History of Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin.
* * * * *
TDPK was busted by the FBI and U. S. Army CID for impersonating a Department of Defense police officer when he tried to have some documents copied at an Indianapolis print shop. It was that arrest that led to a search of the car that he was driving. That search turned up the bomb making materials that led to his being charged as the Speedway Bomber.
Mark Singer adds this on page 94 of his book Citizen K:
Halloween was still a few weeks away, but Brett was already in costume. He had on navy-blue trousers, a medium-blue short-sleeved shirt with a sew-on cloth Department of Defense Police shoulder patch, and a gray wide-brimmed felt hat. The overall effect—especially the Smokey the Bear flourish of the hat—bordered on slapstick. The eventual charges against Kimberlin were impersonating a Department of Defense officer, illegal possession of military insignia, and illegal possession of a facsimile of the Great Seal of the President of the United States. The latter two offenses were so obscure that Kimberlin said his later search of case law turned up no other criminal prosecutions under the relevant statutes—a statistic that seems to fit the novel circumstances under which he got himself busted.
Others have been convicted of terrorist crimes such as bombing, others have been convicted of impersonating government officers, but to be the first, and only, one convicted of illegal possession of the Presidential seal … Now, that’s a unique place in the annals of crime!
UPDATE—Mark Singer notes the “slapstick” appearance of TDPK in his getup. I note that his beard is a sufficiently gross violation of the grooming standards in place at the time that no DoD personnel, military or civilian, would have believed he was for real.

That silly costume fooled no one except The
Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin himself.
