Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Ah, the Streisand Effect! That’s the massive tsunami of adverse publicity that can result from an inept attempt to use lawfare to shutdown adverse publicity. Brett Kimberlin’s misuse of the courts not only magnified the attention focused on his past and present activities, it backfired in court. The TKPOTD for four years ago today described one aspect of how his brass knuckles reputation was doing him more harm than good.

* * * * *

Here’s another fun factoid from the results of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare against Aaron Walker. For four years now, TDPK’s has been lying about what happened during his confrontation with Aaron outside of Judge Rupp’s courtroom on 9 January, 2012. His claim that he was assaulted has been rejected by every judge that has examined it. When he sought his first peace order against Aaron, the judge found that harassment could be a basis for the order but not assault. (Note that the order was overturned on appeal because there was no evidence of harassment either.) Most recently, he sued Aaron in the RICO Retread LOLsuit alleging battery during the 2012 courthouse incident, and he lost, so now TDPK has both the doctrines collateral estoppel and res judicata preventing him from being able to sue again about the assault that never happened.Shirts

Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare has not only failed to silence his critics, it is having the additional effect of vindicating them. The Streisand Effect merely results in boomeranged publicity. The Kimberlin Effect is turning out to be even more disastrous.

It’s gonna take a while for the whole story to play out, but I’ll be covering it here.

Stay tuned.

It took a bit longer for The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin to get get over his craving for disastrous LOLsuits, and there are still a few loose end.

From time to time, someone asks me why I refer to Brett Kimberlin and his helpers and enablers as “Team Kimberlin.” The TKPOTD from six years ago offered this explanation.

* * * * *

I’ve been asked why I began using the term “Team Kimberlin” to describe The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin and his band of thugs. It seemed descriptive, and “Insane Clown Posse” was already in use.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Today is the seventh anniversary of an altercation outside of Courtroom 9D in the Montgomery County Circuit Courthouse which led to Brett Kimberlin’s false claims that he had been assaulted by Aaron Walker. The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin sought to use that imaginary assault as the basis of a peace order against Aaron, and a court hearing his petition found that no assault occurred.

TDPK has continued to use his story of being assaulted by Aaron as a part of various civil suits, submitting apparently inconsistent medical records in those cases. None of Kimberlin’s lawsuits claiming that Aaron assaulted (or battered) him survived a motion to dismiss.

He also included his story of the imaginary assault sending him to the hospital in the 2013 Application for Statement of Charges that he filed against Aaron. When Aaron sued for malicious prosecution, the jury found that Kimberlin had lied about being sent to the hospital.

Perhaps the biggest problem TDPK has had in peddling his tale is the existence of security camera video of the incident which shows that Aaron did not “deck” him as he initially claimed. Of course, the existence of contrary documentary evidence has rarely been a barrier to Kimberlin’s outrageous allegations against his perceived enemies, and I doubt that a jury’s finding that he lied about his “assault” will no more squelch his telling the tale that did the judge’s finding almost five years ago that no assault occurred.

One of the things that trips up Brett Kimberlin time and again is his inattention to details. The TKPOTD from five years ago cites one example.

* * * * *

Here’re the damages that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is seeking in his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 135-DamagesThere are several things wrong with that. First, consequential damages are awarded for the failure of a party to meet a contractual obligation. I have never entered into any contract with Brett Kimberlin, and, so far as I know, neither have any of my co-defendants. Even if he could prove his case, he wouldn’t be entitled to consequential damages.

The really big screw up is in the amount of money sought. Take a close look at the decimal point in the amount claimed. It reads, “two comma zero zero zero point zero zero zero.” That’s only two thousand bucks.

Upon reflection, comparing Brett Kimberlin to a Yugo is unfair, and I herby apologize to Yugo.

Well, finally!

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has gotten around to something “new” at ptotectourelections dot org. It’s a repost ripoff of an article from Politico that tries to tie some buggy election software used in North Carolina during the 2016 election with Russian hackers.

The Gentle Reader may remember that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se/Protector Kimberlin testified under oath in October, 2016, that he and his band of top-notch hackers were working with the DoJ to secure the 2016 elections. He mentioned hacking by the Russians.

If the Politico story is correct, it shows an example of TDPK’s failure to fully protect our election that year. OTOH, Hillary Clinton managed to get 78.9% of the vote in Durham County, so maybe TDPK doesn’t care.

Oh, look! TDPK has added a PayPal donate button to the site, but it turns out that it’s another example of his lack of attention to detail—it’s connected to a PayPal account that’s been closed. The NationBuilder link still takes you to a page that falsely claims that POE has 502(c)(3) tax exempt status. The organization used to have 501(c)(4) status, but that was revoked by the IRS several months ago.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The never-ending parade of silly mistakes made by The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin and The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt in their various LOLsuits have yielded a gold mine of pointage, laughery, and mockification. Here are some bits from the TKPOTD, a Legal LULZ Du Jour, and a Bonus Legal LULZ Du Jour from four years ago today.

* * * * *

I’ve been rereading some of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s recent filings in the five active lawsuits in which he is a party. (BTW, four are LOLsuits he’s filed against me.) His writing is becoming … how to put this? … wilder and more full of stupid errors and omissions. I just finished reviewing something from one of the state cases, and its fatal error is both obvious and quite stunning. I won’t write about that mistake here because it’s the judge’s job to educate the midget on this one.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has a DOOM CLOCK running over at his Derp Brain Radio website (No, I won’t link to it.) that shows 32 days remaining for the return of waiver of service forms he says he’s sent to the defendants in LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler.

Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(3) says—

A defendant who, before being served with process, timely returns a waiver need not serve an answer to the complaint until 60 days after the request was sent[.]

Even if the waiver request forms had been sent the day the LOLsuit was filed, there would still be 54 days remaining for the defendants to respond. But I suppose following the Rules is hypertechnical. And math is hard.

UPDATE—Or perhaps it means that the Cabin Boy™ is exercising his option to allow at least 30 days but less than 60 days for the return of the waiver forms. Whatever. Setting the minimum time for return of the waiver forms won’t change when any answers or dispositive motions are due.

popcorn4bkUPDATE 2—The Cabin Boy™ has a post up “correcting” this one. I checked his “correction” with a lawyer, and I’ll wait for Schmalfeldt to find out the hard way how wrong he is.

Oh, and I see from his post that he’s still too afraid to include me in his LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has yet another post up over at his Derp Brain Radio website (No, I won’t link to it.) in which he demonstrates his poor reading comprehension and his poor knowledge of the legal resources I have at hand. Given his track record, it’s possible that he has come up with a novel way to screw up service of process. We shall see.

popcorn4bkAs I noted earlier today, The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s fear of having to face me in court will keep me out of LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler, at least for the nonce, and I expect that the amended complaint [redacted]. All this means is that he’s surrendered his chance to control the actual venue after [redacted]. Meanwhile, I get to sit on the sidelines and point and laugh.

Heh.

* * * * *

Tomorrow is Christmas Day, and this feature will take the day off.

So head out to the store to finish your shopping (or pickup more popcorn), enjoy the holiday, and …

Stay tuned.

Yes, Merry Christmas, everyone!

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Some of the lies that Team Kimberlin have told have been so transparently false that one wonders why they bothered to tell them. This Prevarication Du Jour is from six years ago today.

* * * * *

Down at the bottom of the Breitbart Unmasked webpage (No, I won’t link to it.), there’s a series of numbers that increments several clicks upward each time the page is reloaded. It’s a fake traffic counter. Here’s what it looked like just before 9 am ET this morning.BUcounterOver a million-and-a-half hits! And complete bullshit. At the same time, the all-time page view counter for Hogewash! was ticking past 782,000. Hogewash! is an older blog than Breitbart Unmasked, and since BU has been online, this blog has always had substantially more traffic. Indeed, for the last few months, BU‘s daily traffic has struggled to match an average hour’s at this blog.

So why have the bogus counter? If it were on the Justice Through Music Project or Velvet Revolution US sites, it might make sense. (“Look, see! We’ve got lots of traffic. We’re effective.”) Is the lying so compulsive that … oh, never mind.

* * * * *

That bogus hit counter didn’t survive one of the early respins of the BU site design. Not that it matters any more. The site is essentially defunct and hasn’t had any new material posted in over a year. Meanwhile, Patterico’s Pontification, The Other McCain, Hogewash!, and the sites of the other defendants in The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits are still in business.
