Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin has tried to paint his enemies as racists (especially Stacy McCain) and Islamophobes (especially Aaron Walker). The following is from a piece that ran six years ago today titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Muslim Hurt Feelings.

* * * * *

In an earlier episode of our series, we saw that TDPK seems to have a special sensitivity for the feelings of Muslims who have been hurt by depictions of their Prophet. Indeed, in his most recent court filing TDPK asserts that the whole brouhaha between him and Aaron Walker relates to disrespectful treatment of Mohammed in pictures posted on one of Mr. Walker’s websites.

<mockery>One of the claims that TDPK has made all along is that he has been concerned that Mr. Walker would be the victim of violence at the hands of Islamic extremists. As a result of that fear, he needed to out the Aaron Worthing nom de cyber. Clearly, TDPK has been taking lesson from the same strategist who had to burn villages in order to save them.

If it were honest, TDPK’s concern for Mr. Walker’s safety would be touching.

What would make more sense would be for TDPK to be concerned for his own safety should he fall into the hands of those same Islamic extremists. TDPK is an avowed atheist, and avowing atheism is consider telling a lie about Allah by the Koran. Furthermore, sura 4:89 says:

They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

TDPK may be even less wise in his selection of friends than in his selection of enemies.</mockery>

Here’s an interesting factoid about the Justice Through Music Project website. It still has a couple of posts up from 2011 and 2012 about working with activists from moslem countries as part of a State Department program. (Claims in some of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits have related to losing that work with the State Department.) While the texts of the posts are still online, all of the pictures have been taken down.

Hmmmm.

It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day, and six years ago today, I ran this post about Talking Like Dread Pirate #Brett Kimberlin.

Arrrrgh! None of the rest of his crew were available for comment.

Back in 2012, a legal fund called the Bloggers Defense Fund was set up to support Aaron Walker in his court cases involving Brett Kimberlin. Kimberlin responded by setting up the Bloggers Offense Fund with a pirate-themed website. It’s because of that fund and website that he became laughingly referred to as The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. This post from six years ago today contrasted Kimberlin with Dread Pirate Roberts.

* * * * *

The Dread Pirate Roberts, so the story goes, 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 Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s legal acumen seems to be as fictional as Dread Pirate Roberts’ existence. And no one will surrender to Dread Pirate Kimberlin.

* * * * *

And defendant loses to The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin. And no one listens to The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin, And no one reads the websites fo the Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin. And no one …

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.

* * * * *

bot_logoSome 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.

TDPKThe 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.

Failing failures gotta fail.

Four years ago, I began occasional posts from The Dread Pirate’s Dictionary after a reader’s request.

* * * * *

TDPKTDPK is an abbreviation originally for The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. That name came into use when Brett Kimberlin put up a pirate-themed Bloggers Offense Fund website in a lame attempt to parody the Bloggers Defense Fund site that was raising support for Aaron Walker. Since Kimberlin has begun suing folks, it also stands for The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. Kimberlin is representing himself in the lawsuits. The legal Latin for self-represented status is pro se. Note: During the brief period when Kimberlin had an unconstitutional gag order in place against Aaron Walker, he was referred to as Lord Voldemort (“He who must not be named under penalty of court order”).

Team Kimberlin is the loose association of cyberthugs who are engaged in the support of TDPK and his interests online. Note: During the interval when Kimberlin was referred to as Lord Voldemort, his associates were called “Death Eater Wannabes.”

CBBS is an abbreviation for Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt. The Cabin Boy™ is the noisiest and possibly the most noisome member of Team Kimberlin. In the past, he served as the Team’s PR flack. He is noted for his use of threats, online harassment, and faildoxing when engaging in his own special brand of inept “journalism.” Recently, he made an abortive attempt to get into lawfare like TDPK, earning himself the additional designation as TDPS, The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt™.

Lawfare is the use of meritless civil lawsuits filed on the cheap by a pro se litigant to inflict the cost of defending the suits on the victims/defendants.

team_kimberlin_briefUPDATE—Acme Law is the presumed legal brain trust behind Team Kimberlin’s lawfare efforts and the source of Team Kimberlin’s legal briefs. It is reputed to be the legal department of the famous Acme Company that supplies Wile E. Coyote.

* * * * *

I’ll add that back in 2012 when Kimberlin was first referred to as “The Dread Pirate,” I noted that an important difference between him and The Dread Pirate Roberts was that Roberts’ reputation for effectiveness and ruthlessness were earned. Over the years, Kimberlin’s failures have resulted in him being downgraded from Dread to Deadbeat.

My friend and former codefendant in a couple of the Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits Lee Stranahan has broken a new story that shows a likely connection between a Democratic National Committee operative, Brett Kimberlin, and 2016 election hacking.

Back in 2012, one of the people closely associated with Kimberlin was another former Democrat operative and hacker wannabe named Neal Rauhauser. Rauhauser joined Justice Through Music Project around 2010, and his name began popping up during my initial coverage of The Saga of The Dread Deadbeat P_____ Kimberlin. Here’s an example from six years ago today.

* * * * *

Bob Belvedere has a D+20 summary posted that deals mostly with Neal Rauhauser and sundry blog comments concerning him. Paul Lemmen received an interesting email from Mr. Rauhauser which is posted over at Capitalist Preservation.

There seems to be a generally accepted opinion that Mr. Rauhauser believes most of the things he says and writes, and he must therefore have some sort of mental illness. I’m don’t know enough about him to have even an uninformed opinion. I reserve the possibility that he might simply be evil.

UPDATE—Lee Stranahan has more emails from Neal Rauhauser to Paul Lemmen here, here, and here. Surely, Mr. Rauhauser doesn’t really believe this:

I can think of no one more redeemed + active than brett. He’s basically the shadow 96th us atty’s office – hardcore anti-corruption ninja. Hook him up?

This tune has got to be the Mr. Rauhauser’s soundtrack.

UPDATE 2—OK, here’s a hint for those who don’t read music. “You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension—a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into …”

Lee is not the only person developing leads on stories concerning Brett Kimberlin and his recent activities.

Stay tuned.

The TKPOTD from five years ago today takes note of an interesting bit of information in the Justice Through Music Project corporate charter.

* * * * *

In corporate law the term ultra vires refers to acts attempted by a corporation that are beyond the scope of powers granted by the corporation’s articles of incorporation, in the laws authorizing a corporation’s formation, or similar founding documents. Acts attempted by a corporation that are beyond the scope of its charter are void or voidable.

Here’s the purpose of Justice Through Music Project according to its Articles of Incorporation.jtmp_purpose

to shed light on some of the injustices in the world with the power of music

Here’s what JTMP says is one of its purposes is on its website.

We also register people to vote using cutting edge technology in order to effect change through the ballot box.

Registering voters may be a worthy activity, but how does registering voters shed light on some of the injustices in the world with the power of music? Is JTMP engaging in activities not permitted by it’s corporate charter?

Carelessness can result in consequences. So can purposeful misbehavior.
