Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

When the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) RICO Retread LOLsuit was dismissed against Michelle Malkin and Twitchy and when it was dismissed against Aaron Walker, the court found that Brett Kimberlin’s reputation so poor prior to anything the defendants had written or said about him that it could not be damaged. The court found that he is defamation proof.

Well, yes. Brett Kimberlin is the Speedway Bomber, and a convicted drug smuggler, and a perjurer—for openers. As the TKPOTD from four years ago today notes, the National Bloggers Club (II) defendants weren’t the first to write about The Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin.

* * * * *

As part of my background research on the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin, I dug up a bunch of the reviews of his authorized biography Citizen K from when it was published in 1996. Considering that he hasn’t let the one year statute of limitations on defamation stop him from suing me over a non-defamatory blog post written more than a year before he filed suit, TDPK may want to consider adding these media outlets to the new suit he says he’s cooking up.

New York Times—

Mr. Singer began his reporting for the book in the summer of 1993, by going back to Indiana and checking up on what Mr. Kimberlin had told him. What he learned led him, almost immediately, to the conclusion that his subject was a liar of substantial proportions.

Entertainment Weekly—

Having since decided that his subject was, in fact, lying, he’s returned to the tale and fleshed out Kimberlin’s manipulative personality.

Baltimore Sun—

Citizen K lied. Brett lied. Lied about selling pot to Quayle. Lied about everything.

Publishers Weekly—

Quayle, it now seems, deserves apologies.

Los  Angeles Times—

Singer eventually found nearly all his complaints without foundation.

By the end of this complex tale you are left regretting that Singer and the New Yorker overlooked the sound advice of a New Yorker writer of an earlier time, James Thurber. One of his fables, about a feckless horse, ends with a moral all reporters should keep close to their hearts: “Get it right or let it alone. The conclusion you jump to may be your own.”

You see, Gentle Reader, Brett Kimberlin’s reputation as a liar goes a long way back.

* * * * *

Yeah, The Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin should allege that those publications were part of an alt-right conspiracy to smear by monkeying with the truth.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The land of make-believe that Team Kimberlin seems to … I was going to write inhabit, but infest seems more appropriate … infest is pretty bizarre. One look at the comment that “Westminster Wind” inflicted on the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread post that was featured in yesterday’s TKPOTD shows how detached from Reality they’ve become. They’d have to be crazy to believe that sort of nonsense and crazier still to think that anyone else would buy it.

Of course, as the TKPOTD from four years ago today demonstrates, believability has never been one of The Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin’s long suits.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin responded to my requests for admissions as a part of discovery in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit. Some of his responses are … shall we say … interesting. The format a request for admissions is such that the response to each statement should be either “admit” or “deny.” Any other response must have a detailed explanation of why a simple answer can’t be given.

Consider these—Admissions 30_33Objection because of irrelevance is not an allowable response. Irrelevance is an reason why one doesn’t want to answer not a reason why one can’t.

It’s also a stupid answer to each of those questions. TDPK’s parole status is a matter of public record obtainable by a Freedom of Information Act Request to the U. S. Parole Commission. The status of the judgment due to Mrs. DeLong is a matter of public record. So is the matter of his parole revocation and the reasons for it.

Clearly, if any of the statements were false, TDPK would be expected to deny them. What does he think dodging statements of easily verifiable facts will do to his credibility in front of a jury?


* * * * *

The Gentle Reader may remember that we defendants didn’t have to use TDPK’s answers to those interrogatories during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial because we never had to put on our defense. The judge stopped the trial when Kimberlin rested his case and granted judgment in our favor because TDPK had failed put any evidence before the jury that we had defamed him.

Reality has this habit of sticking around whether you believe in it or want it to.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I’m not the only person who views The Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin as a liar. Mark Singer, the author of Citizen K, Kimberlin’s authorized biography, believes he was lied to by his subject. The TKPOTD from five years ago today deals with one of the lies Singer caught. It relates to Kimberlin’s drug dealing in Bloomington and his perjury conviction. As you’ll see below, my own research verified Singer’s.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin got caught lying to a federal grand jury and wound up convicted of perjury. He was asked about his dealing LSD to a two guys named John Buckley and David Pacific. He claimed, based on the fact that the Indiana State Police had busted Buckley and Pacific for attempting to operate a lab to produce psilocybin, that they were making LSD.

During a July, 1972, sentencing hearing for a cocaine bust while he was a juvenile, Kimberlin was asked:

Q. Did you ever sell any LSD to David Pacific or Jenkins, John Jenkins?
A. No, I wouldn’t be selling it to Pacific or John Buckley because they are the ones that had the laboratory, they are the ones that made it all. If I was to do anything I would get it from them. That’s my answer.

He repeated that testimony in October before a grand jury. A second grand jury was convened, and it indicted Kimberlin for perjury. He was convicted.

Through the years, Kimberlin has claimed that Buckley and Pacific lied about him as part of a deal with the feds. When he was working with his biographer Mark Singer, Kimberlin claimed that Cody Shearer, one of the people who had helped him promote his tale about selling marijuana to Dan Quayle, had confronted Buckley and Pacific and that they had acknowledge lying. When Singer checked with Shearer, Shearer said that he had never discussed LSD or perjury with them.

Beginning at the bottom of p. 316 in Citizen K, Mark Singer writes:

Sifting through this heap of mendacity , I asked myself whether Kimberlin lies for sport or whether an assortment of small lies coalesced into a gang of tar babies that encircled him. When I first heard about Pacific and Buckley, they amounted to an interesting brick in my wall; their role in Kimberlin’s life never rose to a sinister level. Ultimately, they signified his willingness to stay wedded to a falsehood despite black-and-white evidence to the contrary. My metaphor metamorphosed. The Pacific-Buckley factoid—the news report of their arrest, along with Kimberlin’s claim of their perjury to frame him for same—was no longer a constructive brick but one of many blind turns in a labyrinth of misinformation.

Or to put it more simply: Brett Kimberlin tells lies, and he seems to do so even when he knows there is documentary evidence proving him a liar.

* * * * *

I was able to confirm Singer’s findings via my own personal contacts from Bloomington.

I began dating Mrs. Hoge just as she was finishing her degree in Audio Production from Indiana University in Bloomington. While she was in school, she worked part-time doing audio work at various music venues around Bloomington, often working for the sound company owned by David Pacific. I wound up meeting both Pacific and Buckley during visits with Connie almost 40 years ago. One day, it may be useful to share more of what I know through my Bloomington connections.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I’ve lost count of the number of times that members of Team Kimberlin have been caught lying. The TKPOTD from five years ago took note of one instance of a lie told in the face of photographic evidence to the contrary.

* * * * *

Trying to get the truth out of any member of Team Kimberlin is like trying to nail Jello to a chain link fence. For example, Brett Kimberlin told Judge Stansfield that he was not present when the subpoena for documents in Hoge v. Kimberlin were served at his office in Cabin John, Maryland.frontporch

Uh, huh.

* * * * *

That picture was taken by the process server hired by the lawyer representing me in the peace order cases. When he tried to serve a subpoena on Kimberlin at the Justice Through Music Project office, he was threatened. He called the Montgomery County Police, who responded and assisted him in service of the subpoena.


Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the false narratives that the Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin tried to spin up during the time when the unconstitutional peace order restricting Aaron Walker’s speech concerning TDPK was still in place was that Kimberlin had himself been the victim of a SWATting. I wrote a post six years ago today that expressed my disbelief of his claim. He’s referred to as “Lord Voldemort” because of his “he who must not be named” peace order.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin Lord Voldemort is claiming that he was SWATted on 31 May. Velvet Revolution is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the SWATter.

Uh, huh.

It will be interesting to see what police records show about a response to his residence on that date.

UPDATE–Meanwhile, 85 Members of Congress (all Republicans) are asking for a federal investigation of SWATting.

UPDATE 2–If Lord Voldemort was SWATted on 31 May, why is there no mention of it in ABC’s 6 June story on SWATting? Surely, the Dark Lord would have mentioned it, and if he did, surely ABC would have thought it newsworthy.


UPDATE 3–Lee Stranahan posts the following statement (H/T, @rsmccain) from the Montgomery County Government public information office:

I searched our 911 call database for the above listed address. There was no call listed for 5/31, nor anything similar to what you described. I then searched each of our 6 districts for the entire day of 5/31 for a murder in progress, murder just occurred or murder occurred earlier call with negative results. I then spoke with our director to determine if this type of incident was brought to his attention recently and it was not. If your research proliferates any further detail that would help us to narrow down the search, please let me know. I can always check another address if you find one, but for the time being, I don’t see anything similar to what you described.

* * * * *

Stupid? Dishonest? Inept?

This is clearly a case where it’s appropriate to embrace the power of AND.
