Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has failed at a great many more things than his attempts to use lawfare to silence people who have written truthful things about him and his activities. He’s tried to make a go of using music as a tool for left-wing activism, and failed as The Dread Deadbeat Performer/Producer/Promoter/Protester Kimberlin as well. Consider this post from seven years ago today titled Justice Through Music Project, Soooper Promoters.

Gentle Reader, I’ll bet you didn’t know how critical having their music on the Justice Through Music Project has been for so many recording artists. What follows is from a press release dated in 2006. The subject of Craig Gillette’s PR release was the work JTMP was doing to promote a Neal Young album. I really liked this bit:

Justice Through Music has been a pioneer for the past five years in using famous bands and artists to promote civil rights. More and more artists are coming to JTM to get out their political message, including recently, Pink, Eminem, the Dixie Chicks, and many others.

JTMP’s incorporation papers show a start up date in 2003 but I suppose that Brett Kimberlin could have be operating the organization as an unincorporated entity for a couple of years. He was released from prison in 2001.

And I’m gratified to know how JTMP was so helpful to struggling acts like Pink, Eminem, the Dixie Chicks. Who knows? Maybe one day Brett Kimberlin will put that same powerful soooper promotion behind his own musical career.

It’s been over a year and a half since there has been any new material posted to the Justice Through Music Project website. Indeed, when Kimberlin put up a post promotion the most recent music project he’d been associated with, he published it on his Ukrainian site empr dot media.

Perhaps Justice Through Music and the band Op-Critical are now abandoned failures.

This TKPOTD from six years ago today explains how Brett Kimberlin came to be referred to as The Dread Pirate Kimberlin.

bot_logoThose Gentle Readers who haven’t been following the Saga of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin since last summer may not understand the piracy references. One of the organizations that raised money to help defray the legal expenses for the Virginia and federal Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuits last year was the Bloggers Defense Team. Team Kimberlin responded with a piracy themed website called the 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.

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 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.

UPDATE—From Bill Buckler’s The Privateer via Zero Hedge:

No tyrant on any level can handle derision, it deflates them utterly by reducing their stature to its proper level in a way which they cannot escape.

Yep.

As part of the continuing ridicule of TDPK, his other activities also came under the banner of dreadness—The Dread Pro-Se/Prerormer/Protector/Protestor/Pedo/Publisher/etc.—but as he failed to pay the sanctions and court court due after his campaign of lawyer, Dread became Deadbeat.

He’s now the Deadbeat P______ Kimberlin. The Gentle Reader may insert his word of choice.

One of Brett Kimberlin’s persistent hallucinations is that he’s going to have a career as a musician or as a music producer. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with one aspect of that fantasy.

* * * * *

There’s a Maryland corporation called Act Up Enterprises Inc. It was founded in 2011 by Brett Kimberlin “to provide entertainment services to musicians.” So far, it has one artist signed. She’s Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter.

The company doesn’t do much to promote itself or its artist. Here’s its web page.actup_homeVarious websites related to the sole artist affiliated with Act Up refer to it as an artist management company and a record label—an artist management company with no bookings for its client and a label with no releases.

Hmmmm.

* * * * *

Over next few years after that TKPOTD was posted, The Dread Deadbeat Promotor Kimberlin tried to jumpstart the career of Act Up’s sole artist. When she was unsuccessful, TDPK tried to place the blame on truthful reporting of his past and present activities by various bloggers. He even went so far as to file criminal complaints against Aaron Walker and me, alleging that our truthful reporting on him had harassed Tetyana’s daughter. Although Aaron and I were charged, the State quickly dropped both cases for lack of evidence.

Act Up’s artist used to have a fairly extensive website. It now looks like this.

And Act Up’s site now looks like this.It’s almost is if TDPK has realized that he’s not cut out for a career in music, and this bit of information from the State of Maryland Department of Assessment and Taxation does tend to support such a conclusion.

Of course, it could be that Kimberlin is simply a bit behind in his paperwork because he’s been busy protecting our elections and doing other important things.
